Calls to help youth avoid alcohol abuse Story & photos Eve Jeffery

A parliamentary committee hearing in Byron Bay last Tuesday looking into ways to reduce alcohol abuse by young people was told that more police, better lighting in the CBD, public transport and a cap on liquor licences would help stem the problem. Up to a dozen people gave evidence to the five-member panel of the NSW parliament’s Standing Committee on Social Issues, chaired by MLC Niall Blair and including former Byron Shire mayor Jan Barham, who is now a member of the Upper House. The committee hearing at the Byron Regional Sport and Cultural Complex is looking at the effectiveness of alcohol-harm-minimisation strategies targeted at young people and measures to reduce alcohol- related violence, including violence in and around licensed venues.

It has already received over 50 written submissions and heard evidence from more than 20 witnesses in earlier public hearings. Tweed-Byron police commander Superintendent Stuart Wilkins told the hearing that Byron Bay has a reputation for violence and the problem of alcohol abuse has increased over the past ten years. Superintendent Wilkins suggested several ways to curb antisocial behaviour: improve lighting in the town’s CBD, better public transport out of there and more police. ‘I honestly think wholeheartedly that the main part of Byron needs lighting up: it is dark. I would like to see a well-lit, well-organised transport hub out of that main area of the CBD,’ he said. ‘Byron Bay could certainly use more police. If I had more police, I would use them. If they [police continued on page 9

Toddlers demand GM labels and a chemical-free Shire

A rain-hardy crew turned out at Railway Park in Byron Bay on Saturday to join the worldwide protests against giant US biotech corporation Monsanto. The annual event criticises the unfettered expansion of genetically modified (GM) food and chemical poisons widely used for weed control. While Europe refuses GM, the US and Australia have embraced the technology without much

scrutiny or public debate. Additionally, www.huffingtonpost.com reported in February 2013 that ‘Monsanto has a policy that prohibits farmers from saving or reusing [their] seeds once the crop is grown. Farmers must buy new seeds every year.’ Byron’s contingent called not only for GM labels on all food, but the eradication of glyphosate chemicals on Byron Shire’s parks and reserves.

Tiny steps taken towards holiday letting precincts Hans Lovejoy

Byron Youth Service representatives Deborah Pearse and Di Mahoney, pictured with Greens MLC Jan Barham (centre), spoke to the hearing about the need for education and support services.

Attempts to revive a 2009 Council move on holiday letting have been resuscitated by Cr Duncan Dey. While light on detail, Cr Dey’s motion at Thursday’s Council meeting ‘commits to investigating precincts rather than continuing to discuss their possibility.’ Crs Cubis and Di Woods voted against the motion. The motion comes amid ongoing closed meetings between Council and supporters of holiday letting including the Holiday Letting Organisation (HLO), and the Victims of Holiday Letting (VOHL), who oppose.

And despite years of complaints by residents affected by unruly visitors, Council staff noted in Cr Dey’s motion that ‘To date, little work has been done on the holiday let matter, but Council has resolved to deal with one specific unapproved tourist development at Old Bangalow Road, Byron Bay.’ Why so little work? According to Council’s media spokesperson, legal proceedings against holiday letting have been deferred, ‘until after results of a workshop with HLO, representatives of letting agents, councillors and staff to discuss options for regulation of holiday continued on page 2

Whian logging ends in tragedy A man contracted by the NSW Forestry Corporation to log old-growth forest has died in a work-related accident on private property near Whian Whian forest, west of Byron Shire. The middle-aged man from Kyogle sustained serious head injuries after being hit by a falling tree branch on Wednesday and was airlifted to the Gold Coast Hospital where he was then pronounced dead on Thursday night. Protesters at the site immediately announced a suspension of their blockade following the accident. A crime scene has been established and WorkCover NSW continues investigations into the incident while counselling for Forestry

Corporation staff has been arranged. The incident ends a tumultuous month of protests by neighbours who say the logging did not follow due process as many engangered species were threatened and habitat destroyed. And the non-violent protesters met with violence; a man sleeping alone in a tent on private property adjoining the logging site was bashed and then hospitalised on the Wednesday night following the logging accident. Up to 12 people were reportedly involved in the assault that caused head trauma and bleeding. Another protester was also bashed in a separate incident. Resident Patrick Tatam told The Echo the young man as-

saulted recognised one of the assailants. Another neighbour, Martin Novak, told The Echo that while he supports farm forestry, he didn’t support the way this operation was undertaken. ‘This whole process has been rushed, and the police have been there to enforce the logging, not as peace officers or for safety,’ he said. He said that within 200 metres of the logging site, another neighbour is milling and harvesting timber, but doing so in, ‘a totally different way. ‘The saddest thing is that this forest will take at least 200 years to re-establish itself; in the meantime lantana and other weeds will infiltrate an area that was already in perfect balance.’

Revived holiday letting precinct move continued from page 1 letting.’ A forum with all stakeholders will take place in a few weeks’ time they added. But much has already been done on the topic in 2009, with a link to Council’s holiday letting plans still available online. The Echo asked then-mayor Jan Barham why Council’s plans didn’t eventuate at the time. ‘HLO opposed it,’ she said. ‘They lobbied the [then-Labor] state government, and the government promised they would make a statewide policy.’

She says that never happened. But Council’s plans may now carry some weight after the NSW coalition government indicated the issue should be dealt with locally. Additionally a landmark Land and Environment Court case in Gosford in May 2013 found short-term letting unlawful under Gosford City Council’s zoning rules. In response, that council immediately proposed to amend its local environment plan (LEP). Cr Dey says that his plans are aimed

at a long-term change, but conceded there are obstacles. ‘There are many people in high places with vested interests in holiday letting,’ he says. ‘We have to acknowledge that holiday letting is here to stay’, he said. ‘You can’t get rid of it.’ The Echo asked HLO president John Gudgeon if his organisation would support Council’s proposal but he did not reply before deadline. Previously he told The Echo he would prefer not to comment until talks with Council had been completed.

Topless bar plans put on hold Staff reporters

The Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority (ILGA) has put a brake on plans to open a topless bar in Byron Bay until it considers a community impact statement (CIS) on the venue’s potential effects in the town. Owners of the premises have been attempting to transfer an existing restaurant licence to operate the venue and extend the trading hours until 7am. While it is up to the proposed venue’s owners to prepare a community statement, mayor Simon Richardson, with Council approval, will send its own submission to the ILGA objecting to the licence.

‘Working together, the community is trying to change the holiday mix and attract back the families to Byron Bay,’ Cr Richardson said. ‘Similarly, the local Byron Bay Liquor Accord has to date been supportive with introducing community safety measures to reduce unacceptable levels of alcohol consumption and how it is sold in its member venues. ‘Council and the community don’t want this good work to be undone. We need workable solutions and this includes controlling the number, and hours of operation, of licensed entertainment premises in Byron Bay.’ Members of the commu-

nity are also encouraged to put in their own submission and this can be emailed to liquorapplications@olgr.nsw. gov.au, faxed to 02 9995 0819 or mailed to GPO Box 7060, Sydney NSW 2001. Submissions close November 2, 2013.

Renewing liquor licences Mayor Richardson is also urging the NSW state government to amend regulations and allow local government to have a direct influence on the process of reviewing all future liquor licences. ‘Council would also like to have liquor licences issued for a set period, just like individual vehicle driver li-

cences. This would allow each licensed premises to be routinely reviewed so that changes in activities, particularly involving entertainment with community impacts, can be checked; not open-ended like the current Sydney-based authority process. ‘Like for driver licences, when renewing a liquor licence, a liquor licence holder should be made to prove they are capable of using that licence properly, or lose it.  ‘Those decisions should not be decided solely by a government department down south,’ Cr Richardson said.

MP Don Page ‘incorrectly’ claimed expenses NSW Nationals MP and Byron Bay resident Don Page has been named as one of a number of ministers who incorrectly claimed workrelated expenses for the first half of this year. His name joins a growing list of state and federal MPs who have been exposed as incorrectly claiming expense entitlements. Most importantly, the information only became public after a document was obtained under the government Information

Public Access Act. Mr Page told The Echo, ‘My staff incorrectly booked a [$442] flight for my wife on my ministerial account. A routine check of ministerial expenses by my office identified the mistake and I reimbursed the ministerial account.’ However, Mr Page dodged questions as to how to address the issue of misappropriating public funds by elected officials such as himself. Asked repeatedly if an increase in politicians’ pay and a cutting

of all expense entitlements would address the issue, Mr Page said, ‘The independent Parliamentary Remuneration Tribunal determines MPs’ wages and allowances. If you want answers, regard-

ing trade-offs etc, I suggest you contact them for an insight into the complexities involved.’ According to www.parliament.nsw.gov.au, NSW ministers receive a base salary of $146,251 (for premier, deputy premier, senior and other ministers); however, they also receive additional salaries, including $97,988 for senior MPs and $83,363 for other MPs. There is also an expense allowance of $38,025 for senior and other MPs.

In vogue at the Byron at Byron Good news for library services Liz Levy

Manager of the Byron at Byron John Parche shares a bubbly with Elizabeth Drysdale, the director of the Australian Champagne Bureau. Byron at Byron again held last Friday night’s annual Vogue Living Champagne Dinner. Jeff ‘Champers’ Dawson

Byron Hub blasts off October 31 A one-day workshop with big-name inventors, innovators and investors will be held Thursday October 31 and aims to tackle how to take the American high-tech company development process and make it work for Australia. Local inventor and coorganiser Ric Richardson says he wants the forum to be about the creative and en-

trepreneurial spirit of the area and locals are encouraged to get involved. ‘A big part of the forum is the debut of a private Wiki to help locals connect to each other to share resources and help,’ he says. Panelists include Ric Richardson, Paypal founding investor Peter Davison, Sydney Angels co-founder Andrew

Stead, CEO of Commercialization Australia, an executive from Australia’s patent office and ABC TV’s 4 Corners anchor Kerry O’Brien. The event is a non-profit effort being put together by the northern rivers branch of Regional Development Australia. To book visit http:// rdanorthernrivers.org.au/ news-and-events/inventors.

The good news about preserving library services continues and it is now likely that all three branches will be operating as usual. After voicing strong opposition at Council’s public access to the loss of mobile library services, Friends of the Library (FOL) were relieved when Council moved to maintain mobile visits to all current locations. FOL now believes that the proposed alternative savings measure, to cut opening hours by an hour each morning, may yet be averted through an alternative funding source. The proposal will be discussed at the next Council meeting on October 31. The original $12,000, offered by the Friends to help keep the mobile library, is now available for redirection and FOL can consider what more they might do to assist with the last remaining cutback: the $20,000 reduction to resource purchases. It is to be hoped that through combined efforts, the final impact on the Shire’s library users will be minimal. On the subject of funds,

the Friends’ recent bookstall, at the entrance of the new library, made a lively scene with a bumper collection of books and takings that broke previous records. FOL would like to thank all the book donors and the library staff for their support on the day. Byron Bay Library now

has a book club that meets on the first Tuesday of the month. And all library branches have hosted fabulous and well-attended school holiday activities, ranging from origami workshops to shoe painting, mask decorating and the creation of some beautiful springtime crowns.

Inquiry hears call for cap on licences continued from page 1 administrators] said, “We’ll send you 12 more staff next weekend”, I’d be happy.’ Supt Wilkins said that when he first arrived at the Tweed-Byron Local Area Command about three years ago, he could see straight away there was issue with alcohol in Byron Bay. ‘From that time we have been working in collaboration with the community, with Council and the Liquor Accord to develop strategies to reduce the incidence of alcohol-related violence in Byron,’ he said. He said that initially he met opposition, ‘resistance and ignorance’ in trying to develop a process to respond to alcohol-related crime. ‘But I believe we are all on the same page now. We understand that there is an issue and we are moving forward with steps to work together to ensure that we are trying to reduce that.’

‘Violent place’ Supt Wilkins said Byron Bay, ‘is a violent place at times and clearly over the last ten years there have been issues with the consumption of alcohol here.’ ‘It’s attributed to a whole range of factors. It’s not only licensed premises; it’s also about backpackers coming in, it’s about the environment.’ Supt Wilkins said the issue of ‘pre-loading’ (people drinking excessively before

attending licensed premises) was hard to police and creating many ‘sticking points’. ‘The Accord have agreed to refuse entry to anyone approaching premises with alcohol,’ he said, ‘but it’s difficult for us to take action; even in an alcohol-free zone, if it’s closed, we can’t do anything.’ The town’s Liquor Accord chair Hannah Spalding said that as a result of a changing of the guard in the Accord leadership earlier this year, there was now, ‘for the first time [a] serious collaboration about venues who are part of the executive’. A new breed of executive was voted in. ‘We have a restaurant, a nightclub, hotels and a bottle shop represented, which is the first time we have ever actually had a cross-section of licensed venues in the Byron Accord,’ Ms Spalding said. ‘We have a large number of tourists. ‘Byron is unusual. No other place attracts such a diverse range of tourists in the numbers that Byron Bay does. ‘This is one of the things about Byron that we need to continue. We want to have young people here. ‘We want young people here as long as those young people are respectful. We want middle-aged people if they are respectful.’ Byron Youth Service (BYS) manager Di Mahoney said, ‘there needs to be a cap on the number of licences’ and that,

Suffolk Telstra tower agreed upon Hans Lovejoy

A ten-year dispute over the Telstra tower in Suffolk Park appears to have been resolved between Council and the telco. Councillors agreed at their Thursday meeting to authorise general manager Ken Gainger to sign an in-principle agreement for an access deed for the site. Cr Rose Wanchap voted against the motion. During the morning’s public access, Telstra’s regional NSW manager Bob Coin told the chamber that ten years ‘is far too long’ to wait for an agreement and that Telstra wants to settle the matter in two months. He offered $50,000 to cover the ten years’ rent arrears and increased Telstra’s initial per annum rental offer of $12,500 to $14,684 (ex GST).

‘the issue of pre-loading is a big factor with few effective strategies’. Ms Mahoney said also that for her organisation to help educate youth, there needed to be more financial assistance for services.

Youth ‘scared’ ‘We have done a lot of education in schools with young people but we are not funded very well to do that, so it becomes something that we chase money for,’ she said. Longtime BYS youth worker Deborah Pearse says that she sees that ‘much of the time young people are scared in the town.’ Ms Pearse also said the BYS Street Cruise service was

a point of contact for youth. ‘Most of those young people are local and I know them. They are in my groups or I am working at the school with them or doing individual support and I can follow up. ‘I might not be able to do much with them on the night when they are vomiting in the gutter or we are taking them to the hospital or talking to the police about the best way to deal with the situation, but when I see them in the week, when they are sober and they are at school, then we can talk about the behaviour, the consequences. ‘We can put a safety plan together and encourage consequential thinking,’ she said

Meanwhile Suffolk Park resident Peter Wegner told the chamber the new report on the tower, ‘goes a long way to alleviating community concerns,’ and only had minor misgivings, which included the tower being too close to residents. Cr Rose Wanchap cheekily asked Mr Coin if he would be happy to live near the tower, to which he replied that while he doesn’t live close to any towers, he believes the radiation is safe. ‘My father was in an intensive care unit in hospital where there is radiation from towers… schools have wi-fi these days. If it wasn’t safe we wouldn’t be doing it.’ And asked to guarantee the tower would not be increased in capacity, he said, ‘The tower will always stay low impact.’

Better approaches to addiction In TheConversation.com, David Best argues for the value of recovery in the community in dealing with addiction.

Volume 28 #19

October 15, 2013

What makes living here so interesting While the holiday-letting yabber yabber continues, spare a thought for those doing it tough in the Shire. During Council morning public access on Thursday, a young mother stood up and reminded councillors that there is still a housing accommodation crisis in Byron Shire. She told the chamber that she knows many locals who have been forced out of the area, and others that have suffered psychological trauma from the lack of a home. ‘It took me nine months to find a home for myself and my child, and in the end I was forced to share.’ She also made the claim, ‘As single parents, we are discriminated against when looking for accommodation. It puts extreme stress on us and our children.’ Addressing affordable housing was a question put to aspiring councillors by The Echo during the leadup to last year’s elections. And so far there have been no meaningful attempts by Council to address the issue except vague calls for more community title. By comparison, Noosa is well known to have its hospitality and trade workforce living outside the town. But unlike Noosa, this region owes much of its contemporary alternative origins not so much to the wealthy elite, but to artists, musicians, bohemians, health practitioners, organic farmers, surfies and city dropouts. It’s what makes living here so interesting. Thankfully there is a voice for those on low to medium incomes seeking a home that isn’t a beachfront mansion. SASHTA (Sustainable, Affordable, Secure Housing Tenant Alliance) is a non-profit association seeking to acquire land or long-term leases for environmentally sustainable and affordable housing.

lcohol and substance abuse cost the Australian economy $24.5bn a year. The human toll from accidents, overdoses, chronic disease, violence, mental illness and family disruption, however, is immeasurable. Modern, evidence-based policy responses to addiction focus on treatment, where patients aim to withdraw from drugs through therapy and medications. Harm-minimisation strategies such as the supply of clean needles and syringes and the prescribing of substitution medications are also key elements of Australia’s drug strategy. But while these measures play an important role in how we deal with addiction, little attention is paid to what happens next. Regardless of how good the treatment is, half to three-quarters of drug users relapse. And the quality of life for problem alcohol and drug users in and out of treatment is low – they’re likely to face social exclusion and discrimination. This is why so many professionals and policy makers, as well as people with addictions and their family members, are turning to the recovery movement – as many in the mental health sector have done in recent years with great success. The movement recognises that recovery is a long journey, with addictions typically lasting for an average of 27 years. It aims to address quality-of-life issues by providing specialist help alongside more practical assistance and referrals for training, employment

and relationship building. At the heart of the recovery movement is a shift of emphasis away from ‘treatment’ as a model reliant on professionally delivered interventions. Rather, the movement sees the recovery journey as an intrinsically social process and seeks to create the conditions that

Recovery is strongly linked to social connectedness and to meaningful, social activity. These are the key bridges

Funding treatment is crucial to saving lives and preventing individual and community harm, but investment in aftercare and linking to recovery communities and meaningful activities is the main way that treatment becomes a portal to wellbeing. allow those with addiction problems to achieve a sense of connection in their community, including with peers who are further along in the path of recovery. Whether or not individuals can be ‘cured’, a sense of meaning and a positive identity is likely to empower people with addictions to improve their wellbeing, their ability to cope with stress and to manage any ongoing symptoms they have. The recovery movements in alcohol and drugs mirror similar shifts of perspective and emphasis in mental health and in the rehabilitation and therapeutic jurisprudence movements in criminal offenders. These approaches argue that the aim of publicly funded interventions should be sustained change located in the family and community (broader public health rather

from alcohol and drug treatment, when it is needed, to effective social reintegration and positive life quality. From the United States, we know that only around ten per cent of those who complete alcohol or drug treatment receive community-based ongoing help. Yet, when this is received, it improves the person’s outcomes by 30 to 40 per cent. Similarly, a 2009 trial of support for problem drinkers found that adding one person in recovery to the social networks of a newly detoxified drinker improved the chances of their staying sober for a year by 27 per cent. This is a huge impact that results from changing not only social networks but the underlying values, attitudes, beliefs and expectations. People with a history of drug or alcohol abuse who

are active in their communities have a higher quality of life. A Scottish study of recovering alcoholics and heroin users in the deprived housing estates of Glasgow found that the more time people spent with other people in recovery, the greater the levels of wellbeing reported. It also found that people who were active in their families and communities – by parenting, volunteering, being members of social networks, by working and training – had the best quality of life. The recovery movement is a philosophical shift that recognises that the growth of wellbeing may happen separately from reductions in symptoms and harms, and that professionals have a critical but partial role in longterm change. Funding treatment is crucial to saving lives and preventing individual and community harm, but investment in aftercare and linking to recovery communities and meaningful activities is the main way that treatment becomes a portal to wellbeing. It is that transformation that will safeguard people with alcohol and other drug problems, their families and their communities, from the cycle of relapse and the despair or addiction.

Looking for facts in the fluoridation debate How fortunate we are to have the gift of free speech. Having said that, this gift should try to ensure any information (and I use that word with tongue in cheek) is accurate and not simply designed to scare people to their way of thinking. The Fluoride News recently distributed around Mullumbimby is very provocative, quite inaccurate and grossly misleading. It is scare-mongering nonsense of the worst kind, purporting to give scientific evidence for the false claims made. A careful reading of Wikipedia will provide a much more balanced commentary on the topic of fluoride. At the very least, such a document should provide references for any data and a name of the person/s tendering the information. David Ashton Mullumbimby

That topless bar It’s hard to believe that in the middle of a strong community-based campaign to tackle alcohol-related problem behaviour in Byron Bay, some business people would propose the setting up of a topless bar in the centre of town – to stay open until 7am! So it was a relief to see that the independent Liquor and Gaming authority has called for a community impact statement in its assessment of the application. It’s time for people who are concerned about the future of

or Foe? This is a forum which has been organised so that those who don’t know what it will mean to have their public water fluoridated can inform themselves. Many people think they know what the practice entails but really don’t. This forum will be to bring the community up to speed with both sides of the debate. It is not a place to have a protest rally. Abuse from either side of the fence at any of the speakers, organisers or councillors in attendance will not be tolerated. This is one of the rare opportunities for the community to have their say on this very important issue regardless of your beliefs and to listen to the experts from both sides. Informed dialogue is a treasure beyond price. May the water force be with us as I and my fellow councillors bravely step out into the firing line. Cr Rose Wanchap Byron Bay Q Nicolette

Surely it’s not wowserish to feel, as Simon does, that topless bars, like wet T-shirt competitions and jelly wrestling, ‘are demeaning to women and lower the town’s reputation’. Isn’t it obvious that the kind of disturbing behaviour that the town is subjected to every weekend is going to be exacerbated by having intoxicated men, sexually aroused

October 8) in her enthusiasm to embrace the non-essential element fluoride overlooks its ability to effectively prevent the absorption of the essential element, iodine which, by the way, has the same effect on teeth as fluoride. Iodine, while needed by every cell in the body, is critical to a properly functioning glandular system, importantly the thyroid. Without iodine the thyroid cannot produce the hormone needed to drive the body’s metabolic processes like energy production and thinking. In the US where 64 per cent of the population consume fluoride, one of the biggestselling pharmaceutical items is synthetic thyroid hormone. The pharmaceutical industry would happily agree with Nicolette that water fluoridation is one of the ten greatest public health achievements of the 20th century, but probably not for the same reason.

spouting untruths. There’s no doubt that fluoride given to young children improves their dental health. There are two common ways to achieve this: 1) Distribute free tablets at clinics and birthing centres. 2) Build and maintain multiple expensive water dosing plants and pay high annual fees for buying and handling tonnes of dangerous concentrates (personal protection equipment required). As a ratepayer I prefer the first, much cheaper, alternative since the two are equally effective. I gave my children fluoride tablets. Charles Sawyer Byron Bay

Anyone keen to be topless should feel free to rip off their shirt in the comfort on their own home but the notion that Byron would host a space where groups of men pay to come and drink and watch topless women belongs in the distant past.

Q One thing that should not escape notice with the proposed ‘free’ wi-fi in Mullum is that is it not strictly free. It is a commercial gateway that would expose subscribed users to tedious logons, paid advertising, and monitoring of their internet activity. This makes it unlikely many shopkeepers, who join the scheme for their customer hotspot, would not prefer to keep operating their own wireless modems for personal and business purposes. Hence radiation in the town will rise, not fall as the promoter claims. I challenge anyone to prove all this is not more about cornering the market than doing anything for the community. Helen Burns Byron Bay QI refer to Peter Nielsen’s letter last week regarding the Mullum Wi-Fi community consultation. It’s true no evidence was provided to prove that the proposed system would eventuate in lower net radiation within Mullumbimby. However, as a business owner, I know that business owners respond to incen-

tives. The incentives required to have a business owner turn off their own system and use a different one is simply the new system must be better and cheaper. The new system would be using fibre internet beamed from Tallowood as the backbone, so the new service would be better, plus the new service would be cheaper as it’s free. Peter goes on to disagree with the implication that the meeting was not representative of the community. The meeting absolutely was notrepresentative of the community. We as a community are very apathetic and the simple truth was that there was no reason for the people who are supportive of the proposal to be there. They had assumed a free wi-fi service in the business district would be a sure thing. Had we offered an incentive to be there such as an iPad, there would have been considerably more bums on seats. In this community, we currently face some very serious and debilitating issues: high unemployment, limited access to education, near-zero public transportation, very little entertainment for young people and a practically broke Council.

The Mullum Wi-Fi proposal goes along way toward making a positive impact on these issues. We’re also a community made up of two major demographics: the 45- to 65-years-old and the under-20s. The Mullum Wi-Fi proposal is about empowering the wisdom of the community and enabling the youth. This was barely touched upon on the night. The final claim I wish to clear up is that the proposal is simply a money-making agenda. This is ludicrous! How do you make money out of a free service? And how does a free wi-fi service encourage people to buy computers? We already have free internet at the cafes and the library yet there are no lines of people eager to buy computers from the local computer shops. Obi McDonald-Saint Mullumbimby

Farmers in small villages along the rail lines have diversified from their crops of apples, hay, cows, into holiday letting, and bike rental. Tourists love leaving the car behind and explore the region on foot or bike or travel via rail. We have a great opportunity to transform our region to a bike-riding holiday destination with the rail as the essential backbone. Rail, buses and bikes go together.

entifically justified, and sells devices claiming to make wifi signals safe by rearranging the particles in the electromagnetic field. This is complete scientific garbage. Wi-fi signals are just radio waves – which are natural, and we are exposed to radio waves all the time. They have been around in radio and TV signals for decades, and have been around in the cosmos for billions of years. They are completely harmless. Furthermore, the site talks about electromagnetic fields, which is a misnomer, because there is only one electromagnetic field, which extends throughout all time and space. All radiation is merely fluctuations in the EMF, and we are exposed to heaps of natural, harmless radiation on a day-to-day basis. The levels emitted by wireless devices are negligible. Before making grandiose claims about such things, make sure you do some research, and ensure said research is sound and dependable and not from a site selling expensive paperweights, which do nothing, under a lie that they improve your health. A Rushwood Suffolk Park it was against the law to drive in a manner dangerous to the public. Bike riders break both these rules all the time. I would like to see people who ride outside the town limits licensed and made to register and display number plates. That way the average citizen would be able to report dangerous behaviour the same as you can with cars. A registration fee could help fix the potholes. W B Crompton Mullumbimby Q Tony Parker’s recent tirade neglects to mention the most important legal requirement of any cyclist in NSW, and that is the compulsory wearing of helmets. This vital safety factor has been collectively ignored by all but a few in Byron Bay for many years and is certainly not policed by our already stretched local gendarmes, and the metal barriers wouldn’t be a problem if the bicycles had lights on. Then there’s the issue of cyclists treating our footpaths like roads. Go figure, as they say. P J Prideaux Byron Bay

Booze hard truths and vested interests Q In terms of the alcohol problem in Byron, the real issue which seems to have fallen between the cracks is the number of young people who are alcoholics. When drinking leads to violence and abuse these are clear indications of this addictive disease. Alcoholism can pass from generation to generation and one of the most obvious symptoms of alcoholism is denial. Letters saying that unless people can drink after midnight they will go to the beach with bottles of vodka or whatever are just another indication of the serious nature of the disease. Social drinking by its very nature has a limit. Drinking to oblivion is not social drinking. Growing up with the neverending advertisements which persuade young people that alcohol is cool and drinking is a social must, with no checks and balances, no warnings of the problems caused by alcohol, it’s no wonder there’s an exponentially growing problem. Australia is right up there with the Russian Federation with an alcohol-addicted population. It’s a tragedy that AA and Al Anon do not push their message in schools, in the media and in the community. Having spent many years in Al Anon, I believe all young people should be educated about the grim reality of alcoholism. Australians suffer the disease in plague proportions, bringing chaos to families and violence to communities. Sue Arnold Ocean Shores Q I think Alistair Bell (Letters, October 1) may be sensationalising the debate about alcohol-related violence in Byron just a teeny tiny bit! I’d say it’s a pretty big leap to go from denying people the option to enjoy a drink after midnight to ‘poisoning sick people with an addictive substance’! I’m not a massive drinker and I don’t party till the wee hours of the morning any more, but I cringe at the thought that a very small group of vocal teetotalers are trying to impose their views

drunks well into the early hours of the morning. If Mr Thomson had attended the community meeting for Last Drinks at 12 he would have seen that the theatre was packed to capacity. We are not ‘a tiny minority’, and Byron Bay has so much more to offer than endless partying. Louise Andrews Byron Bay

Thomson (Letters, October 8) suggests Byron Bay will face a local recession if last drinks are served at midnight because of the impact it would have on our ‘vibrant night life’. Alcoholfuelled violence is more likely to have a detrimental effect on tourism, as people turn away from a shire that is the seventh most violent in the state. Mr Thomson states he closes his restaurant before 12. Presumably, he then goes home to sleepy little Bangalow and enjoys a peaceful night’s repose. Not so for many residents of Byron, who have to endure the offensive behaviours of

hol abuse sitting in Byron last Tuesday was subject to the usual flannel reserved by vested interests for such occasions and some hard truths from those actually dealing with the problem. Police spokesperson Superintendent Wilkins was under the impression that there was ‘ignorance and resistance of the grog problem’ until he arrived three years ago to save the day. This attitude may account for his reluctance to endorse the Police Association’s support for Last Drinks at 12 while endorsing all the expensive infrastructure solutions which are of limited benefit. The liquor interests were predictable in lauding the voluntary agreement they were eventually forced to adopt but were reticent in expanding on the fact that it has had little effect on the incidence of violent attacks. The real picture was revealed by the Byron youth representatives and the emergency doctors representing Last Drinks at 12. They described an alcohol-fuelled culture ruthlessly driven by the industry and the sparse resources available to those engaged in picking up the pieces. They alone presented hard evidence of what was needed, the focus of which was that each reduction of an hour in liquor trading resulted in a 17 to 20 per cent reduction in serious assaults. The Byron Greens, representing the majority political party in the Shire (highest primary vote and winning 12 of 15 booths at the last election), endorse the aims of Last Drinks at 12.

Rick Fenn, Matt Bone, Tony Narvo and Pete Wilkins will be joined on vocals by Ted Tilbrook, Julie Shanto Oliver, Guy Kachel, Colin Germano, Deide Vine, Ginny Cook, Jamie Ashforth and Chris Aronsten. They will recreate musical gold from across Neil Young’s varied recording and performing career, while opening up fresh avenues for interpretation. The Echo spoke with pedigree rocker Rick Fenn about his musical path. Rick, how did you first get introduced to music, or develop a passion that has led you to following the creative path? When I was about ten, my brother, who’s a couple of years older than I am, started playing drums in a school band. I used to plonk about on his guitarist’s shabby old Futurama. He was right-handed so I had to learn that way even though I’m a lefty. I got an acoustic guitar and kept hitting up his guitarist for pointers and licks. Like most kids in the 60s I was obsessed with rock guitar and set my sights. How did you get together with the boys from 10cc? What do you think it was about that particular musical collaboration that clicked? I went on to play in various amateur bands till in 1976 the touring drummer of 10cc, Paul Burgess, sat in with the prog rock band I was in then called Gentlemen. He loved the band and about three months down the line, 10cc, who were a huge band at the time, went through a major upheaval and were recruiting. Paul played the guys the recordings of my band and they took me on board. Gentlemen were in their death throes at the time. It was an incredible break for me. The album Deceptive Bends was just being finished and we toured the world with that album in 1977 – including the band’s first visit to Australia. What for you personally were the major triumphs for 10cc? I guess the biggest highs for me were on the Look Hear tour, which was the only tour where we played a song that I’d written and sung on the album of the same name. We were playing arenas and it was a real buzz. With such an illustrious career, Rick, why do you chose to live here in Byron? When we first toured here in 77 I really loved the country. Moving here then

The Young Experience was obviously out of the question, but it always sat on the backburner. We toured again in 83 but I first came to Byron touring with Rick Wakeman in the mid-80s. But the first time I really got to know Byron Bay was when I came over with my wife Heather and our new baby as guest of fellow Feramones guitarist Alan Limbrick, who I had played with professionally in the UK and who had just built a house here. I fell in love with the place. 10cc were very quiet at the time, and I just went for it. How have things changed for the band over the years? How do you sustain the musical appetites of the band, and fans, with such distances between you all? The band went through other upheavals. Not long after Dreadlock Holiday topped the charts pretty well everywhere, Eric, our main lead singer, had a car accident and cracked his skull. We were put out of action for nearly a year and Eric never really came back to his old self. The band was tripped up at full gallop and we started down a slippery slope. Band politics took a swerve and over the next fifteen years or so, though I was always there on tours and albums, my position in the band became more a session

musician. Eric finally quit – it was soon after that that I moved to Byron – and the rest of us hibernated for a while. But it’s just too much fun playing 10cc music. So with some new blood we re-launched into the new millennium. The others live in the UK. I have to travel a lot! What are the musicians who have most influenced you? My heroes, in my formative years, were Hendrix, Cream, Jeff Beck. But I developed a taste for jazz and jazz fusion in my 20s. Now I love country rock, such as Bonnie Raitt and Ry Cooder. Steely Dan of course. And Prince. I love Prince. What have been your most memorable gigs? For me, playing to a home crowd is a special feeling. Assuming the gig goes well, that is. So some of the London gigs, and of course Byron Bay Bluesfest. I really loved that gig. A lot of people in Byron knew me as 10cc’s guitarist, and it was great to show the band off. I’m really very proud of the band. Who are the players here that you have the best musical connections with? One of the things I love about Byron is the extraordinary magnetic attraction it has for exponents of the arts. Some of the musicians this area boasts are phenomenal. I’m fortunate enough to have two old pro colleagues and friends from the UK living right here: Alan Limbrick and Alan Park. Both very fine players who have carried on the tradition of the Feramones that started in the UK. Feramones season starts again later this month. Through Greg Lyon, the band’s supreme bass player, I’ve been introduced to an amazing stable of players in this area: Jim Kelly, Steve Russell, Scott Hills to name but a few; Lisa Hunt and all her band. Being part of this musical community is an honour. How do you feel about the music of Neil Young – what is it about his approach do you think was unique? No-one can deny the influence Neil Young has had on modern music. Like Dylan, he has a host of timeless songs to his name. I have great respect for that heritage. What should we expect for the show at the Community Centre? Paddy Raleigh asked me to play guitar in the show and I’m really looking forward to it. Col Germano from the Feramones is singing some songs, as is Chris Aronsten and Jamie Ashforth, and also Shanto (more great local talent I’ve been lucky enough to have played with many times). And many more artists that I think will make for a show of rich variety. If I weren’t playing I would be going. Not to be missed. Thursday at 7pm. Byron Theatre. This is a fundraiser for the restoration of the Byron Community Centre’s Steinway piano. Tickets can be purchased at the venue or online at byroncentre.com.au.

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

See Mandy live at www.echonetdaily.net.au I DON’T LIKE YOU I like being liked. I’m lucky. I’m one of those people that has always been pretty well liked and I think it goes without saying that it feels good to be liked. In fact most of us spend a good part of our lives in the pursuit of garnering likes from others. Before social media, to be liked generally meant you were a fairly affable sort of person. Perhaps you had fabulous dinner parties, or you volunteered at the canteen, you coached a kids’ footy team, you turned up to working bees, or maybe you just had a nice set of tits. You were friendly. You were thoughtful. People decided that they liked you. They didn’t tell you. They didn’t need to. A person who was liked knew they were liked. It was innate. People didn’t post envelopes personally addressed to you containing an image of the thumbs up delivering the ‘like’ stamp of approval. Knowing you are liked was an internal measure; generally it showed up in your self-esteem. Your sense of worth and connection with the world. Likes existed in the look in someone’s eyes when they spoke to you. The handshake. The shared joke. The sense of community. It was enough. We felt that we were liked.

Live Music

Thanks to Facebook and social media we now have an actual physical way of quantifying our likeability through the ‘like’ button. Ironically, I don’t think there’s ever been a time in history where so many people have been so liked by so many and yet feel so deeply unliked, unloved, anxious, depressed, disconnected and suicidal. The more proof of LIKE we have the less Liked we feel. Social media provide us with data to give us a pretty clear picture of our Like status. My daughters often used to remark about a particular girl who posted pictures of herself on Instagram who got thousands of Likes. In fact she was known for getting lots and lots of likes. My daughter complained that her photos got only ‘120 likes’. That’s still a lot of likes. I reckon if I walked around the streets and randomly showed people pictures of me sitting in my room looking wide eyed at the camera I’d be lucky to get to 12 likes before someone told me to stop being a wanker. I think you’d agree that people roaming the streets seeking constant approval would start to be creepy. You’d stop going out. Needy people are gross. But that’s what the internet is creating: a narcissistic sea of needy people unable to regulate their incessant desire for meaningless approval. We need likes. We demand likes. ‘Like my page’, ‘Like my photo’, ‘like my link’. I’m all liked out. I’m sick of having to like shit I’m not even interested in looking at. How do I know I like your page? If it’s a shop, or a business, or something that you are selling, then don’t waste my time trying to milk the last drops of like out of a woman who every day is starting to like less and less. I don’t

think I could like another thing.

The last two years have SOOM-T was the only ethnic minority member and one of the founding members of a youth group called the Y Network, which was a political group set up by youths from all areas of Glasgow to act as a direct link of communication to local councillors and MPs. Feeling helpless to change anything through conventional political or social routes and angry at the local council’s immunity to positive change, SOOM-T turned to music. From 1997 to 2000 SOOM-T became a regular vocal resident at underground raves, sound systems and club nights throughout Scotland with her own brand of political poetry and musical activism. As demand for her unique vocals grew, SOOM-T joined several bands, ensuring that each crew supported her different style from rap and reggae toasting to techno robotic and gospel. SOOM-T wanted to do it all and use her voice as a variable instrument with one goal in mind. To relay a real message via as many different genres as possible while making listeners dance.

I don’t care about your stupid page. Like it yourself. I don’t even like myself any more. And why do you need me to like your stuff? So your ‘like’ numbers increase. So you can have the most likes. Be a Like Star. It’s ludicrous. It’s just marketing. That’s why views and likes and friends are all measured with numbers, so social marketing managers can go to fan pages or friends of fans and draw up graphs to ascertain their product reach. It’s pure and simple data collection and we’re all in their arse licking our way up the like ladder. Which of course doesn’t exist. Weirdly our sense of self and our worth have become emotionally enmeshed with marketing techniques. We can now measure our human value in likes. Getting lots of likes makes us feel good. Getting no likes makes us feel rejected. We buy into the like culture. But you know what, being liked by 800 people on the internet doesn’t actually mean anything. It doesn’t mean a single one of those people who like your stupid page will ever know your secret heart. If they did, they probably wouldn’t like you at all.

THE GILLIES REPORT ON UPCOMING LISMORE SHOW JUST A FEW MONTHS AGO AUSSIE ACTOR MAX GILLIES HAD TO CANCEL THE LISMORE PERFORMANCE OF THE HAUNTING OF DANIEL GARTELL WHERE HE APPEARS WITH SAMUEL JOHNSON AND MICHALA BANAS. NOW HE’S BACK AND FIGHTING FIT, AND READY TO WOW LISMORE WITH THIS VERY DARK, STRANGELY FUNNY AUSTRALIAN DRAMA. HE SPOKE WITH THE ECHO ABOUT WHAT AUDIENCES COULD EXPECT. Hi Max. Firstly, I guess I should ask you how you are feeling after your sudden illness prior to the last show! Dangerously healthy, but thanks for asking. It’s amazing how effective a tiny stent can be. I’m very grateful that my visit to Lismore was able to be re-scheduled. Can you tell me a little about the play? About the premise perhaps and how it’s staged? Simply put, the story of this play revolves around a keen young actor who’s been chosen to portray a nationally revered but reclusive poet. The visit the unsuspecting actor pays to the elderly poet and his needy daughter will change his life profoundly. Weird stuff happens. Audiences have found the story very funny but at the same time is has provoked animated conversation everywhere we’ve been with it on this tour.

DAMN MUSIC

Without doubt, there are only a handful of Australian bands who can really nail the authentic, gritty and growling feel that so many groups attempt to create, and Melbourne’s Damn Terran are one of those outfits leading from the front. Two vital factors in creating genuine postpunk is having a band with prerequisite spirit made of bravery and originality, and Damn Terran happen to be BEACH BABIES rich in that respect. Well renowned for their cheeky and engaging SHYBABY AT THE BEACH HOTEL ON FRIDAY performance and their brilliant selection of great Born from music from the 70s till now, Shybaby bring an the blood of electric fun-loving vibe to the room, and make the dance floor brothers (and a sister from another mother and father) and forged irresistible. Equally balanced in gender, Shybaby’s singer and in a pit of noise, the triumvirate of Damn Terran, Leigh Ewbank drummer flavour the band with sassy rock chic essence, and are (drums), Lachlan Ewbank (guitar/vocals) and Ali Edmonds (bass/ complemented by tasty guitar and rock-solid bass from their male vocals) have created a musical synchronicity that belies their mere counterparts. Song after song will have you smiling, moving and two-year lifespan. Hotel Great Northern wit h Tiger Beams and grooving. Friday at the Beach Hotel. Feeling Dave on Friday.

What attracted you to the character of Daniel Gartrell? Daniel is one of the most challenging roles I’ve had the good fortune to wrestle with but also the most satisfying to explore. He’s grumpy. He plays mind-games. He’s doomed. And best of all he can be unexpectedly funny. Interestingly its about a poet; do you think the poet still has a vital role in Australia – or has the voice become more marginalised? Australia’s best poets have been enduringly popular and in expressing our common experience they have helped to create the national myths that define and sustain us. What has it been like working with Samuel and Michaela? What do they bring to their roles? A lot of fun.The greatest pleasure for me as we wend our way around the country sharing this story is to be working with two extremely hardworking, inventive performers. Both Samuel and Michala have deservedly large and devoted followings. And their fans won’t be disappointed. Saturday 3pm and 7.30pm (live music and light meals 6pm.

SHEEHAN SHINES AT MUSIC FEST

throughout the album, with it no more apparent than the feelgood lead single 2 Hearts and Forrest Gump, a track co-written by Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas. Fast forward to 2013, and the duo have just released a brand-new EP Lift, a taste of what the duo are capable of – writing within the confines of the dancefloor in this instance, with the expanse and freedom of collaborating with other artists to see how far they could push their sound. Lift features three EDM-inspired tracks resulting from collaborations with The M Machine, Duda and M Diamonds. Covering a vast landscape of dance, indie, pop and punk, Digitalism has become one of the key voices of Gen-Y’s music culture. Also joining the evening’s cast is the not-so-new man in town Touch Sensitive, also known as Michael (Mikey) Di Francesco, the bass player from Van She, as well as DUSTIN THOMAS a multi-instrumentalist, self-confessed AT KULCHAJAM synth-freak producer.

Saturday at Kulchajam in Byron from 7pm.

VAMPIRES IN BANGALOW The Vampires have become an icon on the Australian music scene, having received both critical acclaim and a growing following across the country. Combining their amazing skills to create the exciting and distinctive sound of The Vampires are alto saxophonist and composer Jeremy Rose (winner of the 2009 Bell Award for Young Australian Jazz Artist) who is joined by Nick Garbett (trumpet/composition), Alex Boneham (bass – 2012 Bell Award for Young Australian Jazz Artist) and Alex Masso (drums). The Vampires’ lifeblood is a unique, soulful blend of jazz, oldschool reggae and afrobeat. Having performed their music around Sydney, through extensive touring and in festival appearances over the past three years, the group recorded their

debut album South Coasting (Jazzgroove Records) in Melbourne in 2008, with guest trombonist Shannon Barnett. They released their second album Chellowdene in 2009, and then Garfish in 2012. The Vampires’ music builds on the rich history of piano-less jazz quartets with a unique twist, adopting reggae and afrobeat rhythms in unexpected ways. The dual saxophone and trumpet melodic lines have a strong sense of dialogue and emotional range – from exciting to soothing. The band draws on many influences, but have been compared to the likes of early Ornette Coleman, The Catholics, Bob Marley and John Zorn/Dave Douglas’s Masada. Sunday at the Bangalow Bowling Club. Tix: $15/$10 students | $40 family | under-12s free. Show starts 4pm.

ALL THE SINGLE LADIES WITH BEARDS! There is nothing quite as magical in the comedy world as lightfooted Dave Callan dancing Beyonce’s All the Single Ladies. In fact, this comedian, who started off spoofing the pop act, found himself quite the dancer, and in the end learnt her entire choreography. If it weren’t for the beard, Dave Callan could be Beyonce’s body double! Most non-Melburnians only know Callan through the two seasons he spent with Rove. At the end of its second season, Dave decided to concentrate on his ‘first love’, live performance. The segment on Rove for which he is best remembered is ‘Words That Sound Better When Said By Dave’. Cloaked in his thick Irish accent, Dave was able to make words such as the following extremely funny: portfolio, plectrum, haberdashery and trousers to name a few. Dave Callan is easily the hairiest comedian in Australia. Dave Callan is a versatile and highly entertaining comedian, writer and performer. Dave has also been mistaken for Chewbacca, Jesus and The Wild Man from Borneo. Dave has also appeared on Spicks and Specks, The Melbourne International Comedy Festival Gala, The Footy Show, and Hey Hey It’s Saturday. And guess what? The hairy bloke with the smooth moves is on at The Byron Brewery on Wednesday 30 October at 8pm with MC Mandy Nolan and support act Greg Sullivan.

PLAYING FUNNY BUGGERS Starting out in standup comedy can be overwhelming and a little scary. No amount of helpful tips or discussion can take the place of experience. Like surgery, you have to learn by doing. And you don’t know what works and what doesn’t until you’ve had a crack at it in front of an audience, or to continue the metaphor, on a live patient. The more you perform, the more you are able to learn. Just like surgery. And you know what? When you have an awesome night and things just go better than expected you’ll come off stage glowing, going, ‘I killed up there’. Just like surgery.

s r a t S WITH LILITH This week’s astral emphasis, peaking at Friday’s fullmoon eclipse, is on negotiating a workable balance between autonomy and cooperation…

E ARIES: The most dynamic place for an eclipse is in your sign, and this Friday’s full-moon eclipse in Aries revolves around implementing new methods of resolution and equality when approaching and engaging others. It’s worth observing how interactions instantly give back what you put out. F TAURUS: Taurans like to feel comfortable, but this week’s wild and fast-paced lunar eclipse highlights relationship limitations that could spark a bonfire in your house of love. Alternative ways of making life work are available though, so concentrate on morphing annoyance into creative solutions. G GEMINI: As Planet Gemini hits a period of intense regeneration requiring some hard-line negotiating, this week’s Venus wants to please herself while Mars is particularly critical. With both these energetic strands operating, your brief is to resist polarising and do your best to reconcile differing needs. H CANCER: This week’s lunar eclipse brings relationships to the crossroads. Which connections are no longer necessary? Which worth nurturing into a new paradigm? Remember your truth mightn’t be someone else’s. And just because you don’t agree with someone’s choices, it doesn’t mean they’re not the right choices for them.

unexpected! Feature comic and MC is Nick Penn. What can I say about Nick? He’s awesome. Cool as a cucumber, he’s a no-fuss bloke, who grew up in a time when things were simpler. When people didn’t have Facebook – they had faces. And Nick will make you laugh so much you’ll be off yours (face that is) in the first five minutes. Thursday at 8pm at the Byron Brewery. Free.

SEEING RED Now in its third year, the IncREDible Art Show is the annual Studio RED exhibition showcasing emerging local artists. The opening night this year is on Friday at 6pm, at 5/16 Tasman Way in the Byron industrial estate. This celebrated exhibition showcases the craftsmanship and ingenuity from a growing group of artisans who work from Studio RED, including Mathew Edward Wiggins, Zac Perger, Lee Spykers and Hamish Graham. Along with the prestigious and collectable works of art on offer – comprising paintings, drawings and ceramics – there will be film screenings, live music and drinks. Arakwal dancers and the mayor will open what promises to be a fantastic occasion and opportunity to support these exceptional artists!

I LEO: Lunar eclipses are powerful course correctors that can reroute your life in bold new directions. This week’s expands your mental perspective, emphasises the need for compromise and accommodation when working with others, broadens your spiritual horizons and impels you forward into a growth spurt, ready or not. J  VIRGO: If midweek Mars in Virgo plus the assertive full-moon eclipse drive you into perfectionmeister mode, try not to project this onto others. Just do your best then let it rest, whatever the result. If you’re in the hot seat being slow-cooked, then surrender till you’re tenderised. K LIBRA: This week’s penumbral lunar eclipse ushers in an important year of change and critical decisions. Not your favourite Libran scenario? Don’t fret, there’s plenty to love – beginning with the feeling of liberation as extraneous non-essentials become less inviting, and your true calling more urgent… L SCORPIO: Cherished lifestyles are ending – but new ones are beginning. Flexibility and sensitivity are both necessary during this change-over period, when entrenched beliefs waver in the face of evolving circumstances which respond to enquiry rather than certainty. Your Scorpionic magnetism needs careful handling during Friday’s full moon.

arise from her fascination – even obsession – with Violet’s story and with the internal world she inhabited. The gallery will turn stage set with Mrs Frisby’s naive paintings on one side of the gallery, against the backdrop of some of the furnishings from her home, lovingly restored by Robyn. On the opposite wall will hang Robyn’s sensitive and beautifully intimate paintings and together they will describe an unusual friendship, forged by a mutual love of art and the creative life. To add to the already colourful story, Mrs Frisby was a Seventh-Day Adventist and a strict vegetarian, so to officially launch the show, gallery director, Nadine Abensur (author of seen vegetarian cookery books) will prepare a vegetarian buffet lunch on Sunday to which all are welcome. Bookings are essential and tickets are $20 per head. Please call Nadine to reserve your place on 6684 3446. 1pm

M S AGITTARIUS: Motivating Mars has you rethinking your management of time, energy and finances this week. You’ll want to present your best public profile, so whenever you feel like complaining, stop and praise the person or situation instead. If results impress, you may want to make this a habit. N CAPRICORN: Friday’s lunar eclipse is a karmic time for friendships, with the potential both for estrangement and life-changing connections. If you make decisions and take a stand that displeases some people, your call is being true to yourself while also working for the bigger picture. O AQUARIUS: Midweek’s emotional Pisces moon helps express hurts and desires, no matter how uncomfortable. Friday’s lunar eclipse in Aries forces strong feelings to the surface for a dramatic flush in a general response to this potent electromagnetic charge. Support’s there for you from unexpected quarters and surprising allies. P P ISCES: Plenty of spontaneous joy and inspiration this week, along with some adverse trends – or as astrologers like to call them, blessings in disguise. Which are most likely to occur around Friday’s intense lunar eclipse wakeup call to examine unproductive habits, worn-out attachments and debilitating distractions.

CHESS

by Ian Rogers Play at Byron Services Club, Mon 7pm Milan Matulovic, one of the chess world’s most colourful and infamous characters, has died in Serbia aged 78. He earned the Grandmaster title in 1965 on the back of a gold medal winning performance at the 1964 Tel Aviv Chess Olympiad. However, Matulovic was better known for his misdemeanours, the most egregious of which was retracting a losing move against Istvan Bilek in a World Championship qualifying Interzonal and moving another piece, saying ‘J’adoube’ – I adjust. Bilek protested but the arbiter had not seen the incident and let the game continue. Matulovic won the game but was long afterwards known by fellow professionals and public alike, contemptuously, as J’adoubovic. Matulovic also gained a reputation as a player who was always ready to buy or sell a point. At the 1970 World Championship Interzonal Matulovic reportedly accepted a bribe to lose in the final round to Mark Taimanov

– possibly without Taimanov’s knowledge – enabling Taimanov to qualify for the Candidates matches. Matulovic was a Serbian nationalist long before it became publicly acceptable in his part of Yugoslavia. As a young man he served a nine month prison sentence for a road accident where a woman was killed and is alleged to have complained about the severity of the sentence with the words ‘but she was only a Bosnian!’ The story may be apocryphal but Matulovic did not walk away from it, supporting as it did his bad boy image.

CINEMA REVIEW 2 Guns Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re south of the border, down Mehico way. A cartel baron with bad skin, surrounded by his gang of thugs, is negotiating a deal with a couple of gringos, Bobby (Denzel Washington) and Stig (Mark Wahlberg). Who is the coolest? Who the toughest? Four live chooks are buried in the sand, with only their heads exposed. The goons have been shooting at them but missing. As he and Bobby are leaving, Stig swings around (like Sundance after somebody asks in the iconic

buddy movie that is a million times better than this, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hey kid, are you that good?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;) and, with gunslinger elan, noisily decapitates the birds. I sighed and wished for the world to stop so that I could get off. To say that this film is socially irresponsible and morally nobbled by macho posturing/ homo-eroticism (the two canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be separated), implausible to the point of outright stupidity and suffocatingly clichĂŠd is to treat it with kid gloves. The pair are undercover agents â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Stig for the Navy, while

Trench has been on the DAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case of snaring a Mister Big of the cocaine trade for three years. Deb (Paula Patton), also with the Law, is Trenchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s squeeze. She has a husky voice, long black hair, try-hard Latino sultriness and, perhaps because Patton was a drop-out from Central Casting dramatic class, an embarrassing woodenness. The bad dude is Earl, played by Bill Paxton, who seemed much more believable when he was managing his household of three wives in TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Big Love. Not surprisingly

whole Diana thing, so it would be carping to suggest that being the glamorous figurehead for a decent cause is hardly epoch making. Familiar with the trailer, I feared that this must be a

pretty crook movie if they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a better preview, but to my astonishment I found that it is not totally hopeless. The major problem â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it is staring at you for the entire 113 minutes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is that Naomi Watts, apart from the blonde hair, does not bear any resemblance to the character. Such a criticism might ordinarily be dismissed as piffling, but in Dianaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case her fame was built solely on her appearance. Watts makes a valiant effort at the downcast, faux shy mannerisms, but facially sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too different and, more importantly, she is too short. Diana was a tall woman â&#x20AC;&#x201C; taller than Charles â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and minus those extra inches Watts is little more than just another cute girl on the street. As is now common practice, the story starts in Paris on the night that Diana and her Egyptian lover Dodi Fayed took that fatal car ride, then flashes back two years. Rushing to the hospital bed of a critically ill patient, Diana meets Dr Hasnat Khan (Naveen Andrews), a Pakistani heart surgeon. The pair hit it off, but true love never runs smooth, especially when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the world at your feet and are set up for life. The dialogue is generally quite awful â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the first speaking scene has a therapist telling

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; nota bene: there is not one iota of originality in the script â&#x20AC;&#x201C; both men have been set up by bent superiors, so amid all of the double crosses and close calls, they are forced to increasingly rely on each other, despite not knowing the otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true status. They do it in a canter, drily wisecracking as they blow things up, survive car crashes that would leave you or me in a wheelchair and shoot people with gay abandon. Inevitably, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a case of two guns, no brains. ~ John Campbell

28 October 15, 2013 The Byron Shire Echo

Lasseterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Reef is one of the enduring myths of the Australian Outback. It concerns a seven-mile seam of gold discovered in 1897 by lost explorer Harold Lasseter. He claims to have re-located the gold when returning to the desert years later, but died in 1931. The secret of where the gold lies died with him. After exhaustive research and travel, teaming up with Lasseterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 85-year-old son Bob, director Luke Walker has made

Diana â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;you have so much love to giveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but there are relevant if glib observations of how the cult of celebrity can impact in a negative way on its object. Falling fractionally short of hagiography, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re left wondering if Diana really was a hounded saint, or merely someone who paved the way for Kim Kardashian. ~ John Campbell

Raeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fish Cafe Lunch & Dinner 7 days Wategos Beach, Byron Bay 6685 5366 raes@wategos.com.au

We really do live in a special region here in Byron, but although it is a tourist mecca because of its beaches, and a great place to live for its laidback lifestyle and interesting people, our picturesque semi-tropical area is also a fertile food bowl, renowned for the quality of its produce and the ingenuity of its growers and producers. Byron Bay â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a food journey through the region is an interesting book released last month by local publisher Remy Tancred from Sample Food Festival. Its recipes and photographs showcase some of our regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finest producers, caterers, restaurants and cafes. Well-known chef Steve Snow from Fins Restaurant has generously submitted a recipe for Tuna Sashimi thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actually a popular dish on his menu. Readers who have tried that dish at his Kingscliff restaurant can now have a go at preparing it at home. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the sort of cook whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d find it easier to shack up with a chef than slice sashimi, you might be heartened to know that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just the chefs who have provided the recipes. Producers such as Coopers Shoot Tomatoes have provided a simple bruschetta recipe, a favourite dish that they use to entertain at home. Entertaining guests with tomatoes would make sense if you had a lot of tomatoes in your backyard, and indeed using the produce from the region is one of the

Casual relaxed seaside dining overlooking the picturesque Wategos beach. Using the freshest produce and seafood from WINNER OF throughout the region. CHEF'S HAT 2012 Raeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is an iconic restaurant with a reputation as the best in the area.

themes of the book. The Fig Tree Restaurant at Ewingsdale has embraced the idea with a recipe entitled Our Neighbourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beef Cheek. It is a reasonably self-explanatory dish â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you can cook it at home if you have beefy neighbours. Imagine their faces when you invite them for dinner. The Fig Tree crew cook with vegetables from their own restaurant garden, and have also included their Fig Tree Restaurant Fig Tarte Tatin, which is a classic dessert and very easy for the home cook with an enormous fig tree in their backyard. Yes, I realise that you can buy figs from the farmers markets. If you want to explore the region in depth (or breadth), the book provides â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;food trailsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; following three distinct routes: commencing in Byron then venturing south, over the hills to the west, and finishing in the north. The food trails show you the farm-gate stalls, the restaurants featured in the books, and also where the food is sourced for the recipes. There are a lot of simple recipes in this book for the home cook, lots of salads for the warmer weather and beautiful summer desserts, together with a special section devoted to seafood. The book is on sale in local bookshops, or see byronbay-cookbook.com. Published by Remy Tancred and Nelly le Comte; RRP soft cover $34.95 and hardcover $44.95. FINS is famous for serving the best seafood in Australia. We have now launched PEQĹŹENA A 3-month POP UP Â Portuguese restaurant from the team behind Fins. Menu priced from $11-$25.

A rural focus for Anti-Poverty Week

Australian-first survey of adolescents with autism

The National Health Rural Health Alliance (NRHA) and the Australian Council of Social Service (ACOSS) are collaborating in Anti-Poverty Week (Sunday October 13 to Saturday October 19) to highlight the issue of poverty in rural and remote areas. People living in poverty not only have low levels of income; they also miss out on opportunities and resources that most take for granted, such as adequate health and dental care, education, employment opportunities, food and recreation. The need to alleviate poverty is particularly relevant to achieving better health for rural and remote communities. In Australia, incomes are some 20 per cent lower in regional areas than in the major cities. Australians who are most disadvantaged socioeconomically are twice as

A new research report into 12â&#x20AC;&#x201C;17-year-old adolescents with autism reveals many are struggling with bullying, mental health issues, and the challenges of schooling. Less than half report having good friends; and despite the young people themselves being optimistic about their future, their parents arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so confident.

Aspirations Aspect says it is the first time adolescents with autism have been directly surveyed in a study of this scale, along with parents, to create a statistically sound profile of the life experiences, aspirations and future support needs of this growing group of young Australians with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The Australian-first research builds on the Aspect We Belong study in 2011 into adults with autism. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Our 2011 survey told us adolescence was defined by interrupted school pathways, relentless bullying and discrimination, and unmet education needs, which meant most adults were highly unlikely to find employment,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said the newly appointed director of Aspect Practice, Dr Debra Costley. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Australia will lose out if our next generation of young people has the same trouble entering the workforce, and indicators from this 2013 We Belong Too report are not promising.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Key findings The report shows 65 per cent of parents do not believe educators are well informed about autism. With three in four autistic teens (74 per cent) reporting difficulty paying attention and concentrating in class, a new generation of students hoping to enter the workforce within a few years are potentially at a significant disadvantage. Key findings of the report (which surveyed 100 adolescents with high-functioning autism, and 65 parents, across Australia between November 2012 and June 2013) include: t-PTUJODMBTTUISFFJOGPVS autistic teens (74 per cent) have difficulty paying attention and concentrating in class. t #VMMZJOH BOE EJTDSJNJOB tion: three in four parents (74 per cent) report their child needs more support to cope with bullying. Students with ASD are known to be at a higher risk of bullying than students in the general population (Cappadocia, Weiss &

Pepler, 2012; Hebron & Humphrey, 2013). t -POFMZ BOE BOYJPVT UIF study confirmed a high prevalence of mental health issues in adolescents with autism, with 66 per cent needing help coping with stress, and 73 per cent feeling lonely. t %FNBOE GPS NPSF "4% friendly sport and hobby groups: one in two teens with autism (57 per cent) belong or would like to belong to a hobby or sports group, raising questions as to whether local groups are ready and able to include more ASD-friendly approaches. t'VUVSFIPQFTFWFOUIPVHI the majority of adolescents surveyed were optimistic about their future, their parents were not so confident â&#x20AC;&#x201C; pointing to uncoordinated, unaffordable support services that are unsuitable for preparing adolescents with ASD for independent living. The Australian National University Human Ethics Committee approved the national study (Protocol Number 2012/436), which employed both qualitative and quantitative methods to survey 65 parents and 100 adolescents diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) at the higher-functioning end of the spectrum.

Aspect Practice This report is the first for the newly launched Aspect Practice â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Aspectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national program, which will share its evidence-informed practice and applied research with individuals, families, carers, schools, organisations, professionals and government agencies around Australia. Adrian Ford, CEO of Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect), said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Over the last 15 years there has been a growing number of people with autism. The prevalence among children and young people is now one in 100. This means there are an estimated 230,000 people with autism in Australia. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There is a huge international research effort going into the causes of autism. This is vitally important work.

Effort needed â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;However, there is nowhere near the same effort being put into the best possible services and practices that will help the 230,000 people living with autism in Australia right now. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Aspect has established itself as a leading service provider with a strong research and evaluation capability â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a unique combination â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and one that is just right if we are to make a difference right now for people with ASD and their families.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The full report can be downloaded from www.autismspectrum.org.au for $14.99.

Mullum Underground is looking for talent to host shows as well as contribute to music compilations released by Mullum Underground.

ent in the area. I think the community will be pleasantly surprised by what we put out there,’ Jack says. Mullum Underground is seeking passionate and enthusiastic artists, musicians, presenters, singers, and generous sponsors. For more information please contact talent@mullumundergound. com.

Doctors burn out, too: survey A world-first survey of thousands of Australian doctors and medical students has revealed they are burnt-out, more likely to experience psychological distress and suicidal thoughts than the general community and are

drinking too much alcohol. Beyondblue’s National Mental Health Survey of Doctors and Medical Students found that medical students and young or female doctors are most at risk. See http://bit.ly/ downdocs for more.

The stingy, cranky Ebenezer Scrooge hates Christmas and loathes people. On Christmas Eve he is visited by three spirits who show him his fate and he realises it is time to change his attitude. A show the whole family will love with a cheerful, festive message. Scrooge The Musical is on Sunday October 20 at 2pm and 7pm at the Byron Theatre.

NOTICE OF PROPOSED ROAD NAMES

REQUEST FOR QUOTATION

Byron Shire Council announces that the following names are proposed for roads within the Council boundaries.

Council Agenda Management Software Contract No. 2013-0039

Roundhouse Place Locality: Ocean Shores Background: The name has been selected as historically the parcel of land has been known as the Roundhouse site for the past 40 plus years. In 1969, as part of the initial development for the then new urban subdivision of Ocean Shores, a large timber and glass circular building (hence the name Roundhouse) was constructed on the site as the administration and sales office for the developer. While the building was demolished in 1996, the site is still referred to by the Ocean Shores community as the Roundhouse site. Reason: The road name is required for the new road proposed in the “Roundhouse” subdivision. Location: Extending in a northerly direction off Orana Road between Narooma Drive and Kanandah Court as defined on the map below.

Greg Norman Juniors are winners at Ocean Shores

The Steve Hall Memorial Trophy for the Best Ocean Shores Junior was Liam Harman (Net 72).

The Ocean Shores Country Club recently hosted their annual Greg Norman Golf Foundation Junior Masters event with both 18-hole and nine-hole events on the golf course. ‘It is a qualifying event for the Greg Norman Junior Masters,’ says club president Stuart Brady. ‘The Junior Masters has been running for around 20 years and this is the tenth year it has been a qualifying event for the Greg Norman Junior Masters.’ The event had originally been planned for March but had been washed out. It was rescheduled for October and had a great turnout of 48 young golfers. ‘It was a good turn-up, seeing it was a long weekend and held on the day of the NRL grand final,’ says Stuart. The age range for the tournament was eight to 17 years and the handicaps were as low as +1 for the boys and zero for the girls. It’s a popular event; com-

Winners of the main division were: Ocean Shores Junior Masters Champion Boys Tanner Jackson (69), and Ocean Shores Junior Masters Champion Girls Kirsty Hodgkins (74).

petitors came from as far afield as Brisbane and Coffs Harbour. There was a 9-hole stroke event – the Gary Ridge Memorial Trophy; this is the first year a 9-hole event has been run as part of the competition. There were separate

18-hole stroke events for the boys and the girls. ‘Conditions were fantastic,’ says Stuart. ‘A credit to our superintendent, Shane Heaney, and his staff. The standard of play was outstanding, with the boys’ winner shooting a

score of three under par, 69. There were 11 boys playing off handicaps of five or less, including a 14-year-old playing off a handicap of +1. The girls’ winner shot a two over par 74.’ Winner of the divisions were: Ocean Shores Junior Masters Champion Boys Tanner Jackson (69) and Ocean Shores Junior Masters Champion Girls Kirsty Hodgkins (74). Runner-up Boys Jacob Borra (73) and runner-up Girls Madeline Trew (76). The Net Winner for the boys was Matthew Bailey (69) and for the girls it was Ashlee Selwood (71). The winner of the Inaugural Gary Ridge Memorial Trophy (nine holes) was Jack Robertson (44) and the Steve Hall Memorial Trophy for the Best Ocean Shores Junior was Liam Harman (Net 72). Stuart says it was a wonderful day that was made even better by all the volunteers who helped out.

Nothing funner than Sevens

Netball fever hits coast

Last year Sevens saw Redland Bay’s Krystle Gemmell in Sevens Heaven when she became the heroine of the day scoring the ‘Golden Point’ for a 26–21 win against Arongatahi from New Zealand.

Netball fever is about to hit the Gold Coast, with over 200 teams from around Australia and New Zealand set to take on the third annual NetFest event from October 17 to 20. NetFest is the end-of-season event for netballers More than just a netball tournament, NetFest is Netball Australia’s mass-participation event for female and mixed teams of players aged 18 and over. Teams can choose from the traditional outdoor competition format, or the increasingly popular beach netball competition played on custom-built courts on the sands of Surfers Paradise. The on-court action will be supported by a program of social events overseen by NetFest Ambassador Liz Ellis and including the official opening, a celebrity beach netball match and the NetFest Saturday night party at the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre. ‘I’m just so excited to be returning to the Gold Coast for NetFest 2013’, said Ellis. ‘Last year was my first experience of NetFest, and I loved every minute of it. There’s just so much positive energy around this event, you can’t help but get around with a smile on your face all weekend. ‘It’s a huge celebration of all the great things in life – good

It wouldn’t be spring if sports teams didn’t have their endof-season bash and it wouldn’t be Byron Bay if there were no Rugby Sevens. One of the best events on the sporting calendar, I can guarantee that if you have one sporting bone in your body, the most fun you could possibly have this weekend is at the Byron Bay Rugby 7s.

This is a fun family day. The swift succession of games is entertaining to say the least and the contingent of novelty teams makes for interesting viewing. Though not always ‘G’ rated (in 2008 one team stripped to their undies for their knockout match), and you can be pretty sure there will be a at least one streaker, this event is way too much fun. The Sevens competition has been held in Byron Bay in

October for the last 20 years. The event hosts 32 men’s teams and 16 women’s teams, with competitors from Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Papua New Guinea The competition gets underway on Saturday at the the Byron Bay Recreation Grounds, and the knockouts begin on Sunday morning. The fun really begins when the residue of the teams go head-to-head in the finals on Sunday afternoon. I just can’t say enough to recommend you go to the event. See more at: www.byronbayrugby.com.au.

mates, fantastic weather, a bit of trans-Tasman rivalry, a lot of fun, all revolving around the world’s greatest sport – what more could you want?’ In a rare return to the court, Ellis will head up ‘Liz’s Legends’ in the Thursday night celebrity beach netball match. Liz’s 2012 teammates Trevor Hendy and Jessica Skarratt are returning to help her defend her title against the Sea FM All Stars, with Gold Coast councillor Glenn Tozer completing the team of four. They’ll need to be on their best game, with Sea FM’s recruitment coup of recently retired Sharelle McMahon, former Australian captain and second most capped player behind Ellis herself. NetFest has rapidly established itself as one of the most popular events on the netball calendar. From just

500 participants in its first year, NetFest participation more than doubled in 2012, and this year has attracted a whopping 1,800 netballers across the beach and outdoor competitions. This year will see a record 35 teams (three female and two mixed divisions) take part in the beach competition, while the outdoor competition has attracted 168 teams comprising nine competitive, six social and two mixed divisions. All teams play a round robin tournament over Friday and Saturday, with the top four in each division progressing to the Sunday finals. This year’s off-court action has been enhanced by the scheduling of the final match of the Coles International Netball Test Series at the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre on NetFest’s penultimate night, coinciding with the NetFest Party. Queensland’s Laura Geitz will lead her team on to the court in her home state for the first time since being appointed captain of the Australian Diamonds in August.

Backlash The fuss over the proposed topless bar in Fletcher Street – isn’t it the building a previous owner once tried to blow up and which then housed Centrelink? – has led to the Independent Liquor and Gaming Authority (ILGA) requiring a community impact statement. The attempt to extend the restaurant licence hours to 7am is bound to cop a bit of a hiding, too. QQQQ

Local Nats MP Don Page is one of those pollies caught up in the expenses fiasco, having incorrectly claimed $442 as a public expense for an aeroplane flight. He’s since reimbursed the amount. Nick Xenophon’s suggestion that an independent authority should set the guidelines on claimable expenses might help avoid the confusion. In any case, we can see why NSW ministers need to be reimbursed when they just struggle through on a base salary of $146,251. Shameful, simply shameful. (You can see all the state salary perks at http://bit.ly/pollymoney.) QQQQ

One of the more interesting effects of climate change is the takeover of the oceans by jellyfish – a great theme for a horror movie. Australian scientist Tim Flannery reviews a book on the adaptable and nearly indestructible jellyfish, Stung!: On Jellyfish Blooms and the Future of the Ocean by Lisa-ann Gershwin, in the New York Review of Books: http://bit.ly/jellyTim. If you think it inconceivable, Gershwin recalls for us the Proterozoic era, when jellyfish were the top predator in the marine ecosystem, at a time when there were no fish, no mammals, and no turtles.
