Bottleshop DA relinquished A bottleshop DA attached to the rejected Dan Murphy’s bid in Byron Bay has been exchanged for restaurant car parking according to mayor Simon Richardson. Last week, The Echo reported that a liquor bottleshop development application (DA) which was rejected by the Office of Gaming and Racing (OLGR) last year was again before Byron Shire Council. Cr Richardson told The Echo that car parking behind the Palace Cinema on Jonson Street was the only reason Council staff refused the current DA. ‘Negotiations with the developer, myself and staff have resulted in the bottleshop application being transferred to the restaurant DA as a liquor licence. ‘The developer has surrendered the car spaces within Dan Murphy’s DA and will use them for two restaurants in that location.’ The DA is yet to be debated by councillors but the mayor told The Echo the restaurants would be fine dining and ‘family friendly.’

United approach to alcohol-related crime established Hans Lovejoy

Now in its third year, the Byron Surf fest graced the beaches and shorelines of Byron last weekend. Coorganiser Mike Young told The Echo the event is about bringing surf culture and people together. ‘Whether it’s art, film photography, music… this is about anything surf related, except competition.‘ The weekend featured world-famous surfing legends such as Keith Malloy, as well as local legends Bob McTavish and Rusty Miller.

A working group has formed after a recent meeting between Byron Bay’s stakeholders wanting to address alcohol-related crime. Held at Council’s chambers in Mullumbimby, it was chaired by mayor Simon Richardson and included representatives from Council, Byron United, Last Drinks at 12, VIA Byron, local police and hospitals, Byron Bay Liquor Accord, Byron Youth Service and Save our Night Life. Byron’s chamber of commerce (Byron United) president Paul Waters said the forum was a recommendation by his board to bring all stakeholders together and ‘begin a process by taking into account everyone’s position in the community.’ ‘It was very clear that we all want the same result, and it’s also clear that more needs to be done on the streets where most of the trouble occurs.’ Additionally he’s calling all CBD businesses to light up the continued on page 3

Bangalow residents ‘appalled’ at Council staff report to remove weir Recommendations by Council staff to remove the historic Bangalow weir on Byron Creek have riled residents who say their wishes to restore the structure have been ignored. The weir’s fate is due to be discussed at the upcoming Council meeting on Thursday October 31. ‘We are totally gobsmacked at this idea!’ said Bangalow Weir Group representative, Terry Bleakley. ‘After having so many meetings with Council, to have staff point blank deny the fact that our community simply does not want the weir wall removed, not to mention the reality of the cost of demolition, is incredible.

‘As we understood Council was strapped for cash, our team applied for funding under the Community Building Partnernships program which would fund the repair and stabilisation of the weir.’ He says the outcome will not be known until December. ‘We’ve managed to get outside contributions to fund a massive co-operative wetland project completed in the creekside park, plus get some great signs made. At no cost to Council, Baulderstone [construction company] freely contributed labour and equipment to construct a 110-metre path between the wetland and the creek, as well as contributing 14 two-tonne

rocks to form rock circles for the benefit of the community. A local engineer has volunteered yet another concept plan to repair the weir wall at considerable savings. And now we’ve applied for government funding to restore the weir. What’s Council done? Four reports over several years.’ Mr Bleakley says Council’s consultants, WBM, estimated earlier this year that removal costs would be ‘around $115,000’. ‘The Bangalow Weir  Group’s  highly credentialled  civil engineer  donated  a concept plan to repair and stabilise the weir wall at a construction cost of less than $100,000. This was presented to Council for its consideration

on July 3, 2013. Now the latest staff report – the fourth Council has received on the topic in recent years – says there’s no money to pay to fix the wall, but there might be $60,000 in a ‘community infrastructure maintenance’ program to get rid of it. But – sorry – that wouldn’t cover repair of the wall.’ But Council’s executive manager of infrastructure Phil Holloway says the recommendation to remove the weir was ‘based on a responsible decision that Council does not currently have the funds to repair the wall and retain the weir.’ continued on page 3

Cringe the Binge Federal set to party in action again The ‘Cringe the Binge’ second National Weekend of Action is coming up on November 8–10 and coincides with the lead-up to school leaver celebrations (Schoolies) across the country. Director of Byron Youth Service (BYS) Di Mahoney says, ‘On the National Weekend of Action, we ask all Australians to join us in tackling youth binge drinking by donating what they would normally spend on alcohol that weekend to Cringe the Binge via our web-based virtual bottleshop.’ The National Weekend of Action will include an adult fundraiser on November 8 at the Byron Bay Community Centre. The theme, ‘Mix it Up with Mocktails’, will feature the Lisa Hunt band and Byron

Shire mayor Simon Richardson creating mocktails, while the Byron Youth Theatre group will perform. On the same night the Byron Youth Activities Centre (YAC) will host a gig for young people called the ‘Slurpee Mash Up’.

BYS wins award Meanwhile a BYS ad campaign has recently won the 2013 Australian Marketing Institute National Excellence Award for ‘Marketing on a Shoestring Budget’. Designed by Brisbane agency Decoder, a set of five cheeky posters is aimed at engaging young people on some of the dangers associated with binge drinking. For more visit www.cringethebinge.com.au.

The recently opened topless bar in Fletcher Street has withdrawn its liquor licence application from the Independent Liquor & Gaming Authority (ILGA). Owners of the bar, named

‘Bay at Byron’, had plans to transfer a restaurant liquor licence and extend trading hours until 7am, a practice which is entirely legal but came under fire from the mayor and the community. A source told The Echo that removalists were seen carrying furniture out of the premises on Friday.

Byron Shire’s local musicians raised another $3,000 towards the restoration of the Community Centre’s Steinway piano with their Young At Heart: A Tribute to Neil Young night on Thursday October 17. Rick Fenn, Matt Bone, Tony Narvo and Pete Wilkins were joined on vocals by Ted Tilbrook, Julie Shanto Oliver, Guy Kachel, Colin Germano,

Deide Vine, Ginny Cook, Jamie Ashforth and Chris Aronsten, who all contributed their time and talent to the sell-out gig.

$40,000 needed The successful event follows the Bob Dylan Birthday Bash held in May that was driven by the same team of local volunteers, Paddy Raleigh and Lyn McCarthy.

The two concerts were organised to help raise the $40,000 needed to ensure that the Byron Theatre’s Steinway piano is maintained at a concert standard. ‘The concerts held so far this year have raised $7,000 towards a very worthwhile cause and we couldn’t be happier with the response and the support from the local community,’ said Paddy Raleigh.

‘While we appreciate the work undertaken by the community on the concept plan, further detail is required to formalise a design, approvals and cost estimate. The final estimated costs are unknown but are expected to well exceed the proposed $87,000 by the community. Funding for the weir reconstruction would also need to be reallocated from other Council infrastructure programs.’ Mr Holloway said the recommendation to Council was a working compromise and takes into consideration the community, heritage, environment and funding. ‘It would be a balance between keeping the heritage aspects, restoring the creek back to its natural environment, and within a responsible budget,’ he said.

Mayor Simon Richardson told The Echo, ‘We all agreed we need to create a working group to develop a whole-oftown response, rather than fighting over individual aspects, eg opening/closing hours, lighting, CCTV, activation of laneways, diversifying the demographics etc.

‘Instead, we need to consider all of [the issues] in a strategic and considered manner. ‘Cr Paul Spooner has put a notice of motion to Council outlining this. ‘It may be slower and more “committee-ish” than many want, but it is the only way to take the discussion away from a self-interested, blackand-white view currently shaping the debate.’   When asked if Council is close to receiving state and federal funding to improve lighting and CCTV, he told The Echo Council was, ‘not really any closer at the moment, but staff and I are still working on it.’

Local News Monks seen as security threat in Indo Three Indian monks, Drakpa, Shakya and Dawa, have finally arrived in the northern rivers after traversing half the globe and back. Astonishingly they were considered a security threat to the Indonesian government during Bali’s APEC summit and were sent back to Singapore, then back to India. Additionally they were made to pay for their return tickets, which has been a major setback for their finances and fundraising efforts. Co-organiser of their visit,

Jai Sleeman, says that despite having legitimate Australian 456 visas and plane tickets they were denied onward travel because, as stateless refugees, they hold identity cards instead of passports.

ing other schools will see increased funding and that a new funding model called Resource Allocation Mode (RAM) will distribute funding more transparently and fairly, and was ‘made possible by the Gonski funding agreement.’ The Education Department website says RAM uses a combination of base funding and loadings. ‘The base component covers the cost of educating each student and operating a school. This base is then supplemented by a series of loadings for student- and school-based

sources of disadvantage.’ NSW Labor opposition leader John Robertson said, ‘the cuts blatantly contradict the intent of the Gonski reforms.’ ‘This is a government that has already axed 1,800 jobs from schools and TAFE. It has cut Labor’s School Demountable Replacement Program. It has axed apprenticeship programs such as the Joint Group Training Scheme. At a time when youth unemployment is 17 per cent, Barry O’Farrell’s cuts are hurting our kids’ future.’

New planning laws finally supported by Local Govt NSW The state government’s overhaul of planning laws, tabled in NSW Parliament on October 22, has been finally supported by the state’s peak body representing 152 shire councils, Local Government NSW. It’s the most significant planning overhaul in several decades, yet was continually criticised by environmental and civil liberties groups who claimed the draft legislation favoured fast-track developments and lacked community input. And while Local Government NSW also shared many of those views, president Cr Keith Rhoades AFSM said in a statement his organisation ‘achieved significant amendments’ to the draft policy prior to it being introduced.

They include sustainable development, community inclusion, biodiversity conservation, natural resource management and retaining heritage protections. ‘[Planning] Minister Hazzard has listened to the concerns of councils and communities alike and included sustainable development in the upfront objectives of the Act and triple-bottom-line considerations in meritassessable development applications, which will still be dealt with by councils. ‘What’s more, the Bill’s underpinning objectives now also recognise biodiversity conservation, natural resource management including agricultural land, and retain the same heritage pro-

tections as the current Act.’ Meanwhile Mr Hazzard told Parliament on October 23 that ‘The Greens should be on board with that concept. They cannot have it both ways: either we are backing the councils and the communities or we are not.’ The minister also had a swipe at media reporting, saying his new laws have been ‘misinterpreted by some members of the media.’ ‘The bottom line is that code-assessable development will be available across the state, across all of Sydney. It will be up to the councils and the community to determine whether they want code-assessable development.’ For more visit www.planning.nsw.gov.au.

Local News It’s a Nutcracker getting into costume NSW govt announces arts and

cultural policy, feedback wanted

Russian composer Tchaikovsky may never have imagined quite this degree of costume camp when the Nutcracker ballet was first performed in 1892, but the ���Mother Ginger’ character has been a light-hearted interlude in this classic ballet for 120 years. Byron Ballet presents the Nutcracker ballet in full glory this weekend with four performances from November 1 – 3 at the Byron Theatre. For ticket enquiries phone 6685 6807. Pictured is Clinton Hart dressed as Mother Ginger, as designed by costume artist Cerise Gollogly. Photo Jeff Dawson

The state’s first ever arts and cultural policy has been announced and is now open for public comment, says NSW coalition MP and Byron Bay resident Don Page. The discussion paper proposes a ‘compelling vision for the arts and cultural sector in NSW.’ ‘The northern rivers has the highest number of workers in the creative industries outside of Sydney,’ Mr Page said. ‘I encourage anyone interested in helping to shape the NSW government’s vision for the state’s arts and cultural sector to participate in the consultation process.’ Yet despite the high employment and the consider-

able economy generated by the arts, especially in the northern rivers region, TAFE arts courses were slashed by the NSW coalition government in 2012. 800 jobs were cut from TAFE as part of a $1.7 billion cut to the education budget over four years. A government taskforce urged funding reinstatement earlier this year but was ignored by the government.

While member for Ballina Don Page defended the TAFE cuts at the time, NSW Greens MP Dr Kaye told The Echo, ‘The O’Farrell government cut $300 million in payroll tax to the top ten per cent of the largest and wealthiest companies who could easily afford it.’ The discussion paper is available from www.arts.nsw. gov.au. Submissions close December 20, 2013.

‘End child detention’ quilt being sewn by parishioners ‘End child detention’ is the theme of a quilt being made by parishioners across NSW Uniting churches, and will be presented to politicians in Canberra on November 13. It aims to highlight the government’s unconscionable

mandatory detention of asylum seeker children who arrive by boat. Minister of Bangalow Uniting Church, Ken Day, says his congregation recently contributed to the quilt and will be running a fair trade stall in November.

Not blinded by science While much of what passes for philosophy or fact in Byron Shire is merely someone blowing unadulterated faery dust into your eyes, there is an element of our youth who understand that conclusions can be drawn from observable, rigorously tested facts. These people are known as young scientists and they will be competing with the nation’s best when Southern Cross University’s Lismore campus hosts the Science and Engineering Challenge National Final on Wednesday October 30. The community is encouraged to come along and watch the action – or catch the webcast – of the Gold Fever activity, in which students build a small bridge from balsa, pins, tape and paddle pop sticks, testing out their understanding of strength and load-bearing capacity. As SCU’s Foundation Professor of Engineering Scott Smith says, ‘The Challenge’s hands-on activities are designed to replicate real-life problems by demonstrating the varied and practical elements of careers in the disciplines of science and engineering, like constructing earthquake-proof buildings and “green” homes or managing limited electricity and water supplies.” It is the ancestors of these budding engineers and scientists who brought us the wheel, the cooking fire, the bridge and the computer. No appeal to an invisible friend in the sky or other wishful thinking can hope to equal the practical benefit of science in our everyday lives. Find out more about this event at http://bit.ly/engfinal and cheer them on. The future of science is in their paddle pop skills. Michael McDonald

T

here is an old political adage that says never set up an enquiry unless you already know the result; and Tony Abbott and Joe Hockey have certainly done their best to comply with it in selecting the terms of reference and personnel for their much-trumpeted government Commission of Audit. Abbott promised a government of no surprises, and while he may not be able to deliver across the board, he will certainly do so when his hand-picked body reports in March, leaving plenty of time to process its findings before Hockey hands down his first budget. In theory, the first national audit since 1996 should cover the whole of government and indeed all the nine governments in Australia, federal, state, and territory – though not, of course, local, still unrecognised in the constitution and destined to remain so for a long time if Abbott has his way. And the audit should also examine every aspect of the budgeting process including those now shrouded in secrecy such as the spending patterns of our security services. But Abbott and Hockey, while declaring virtuously that nothing is off the table, have made it clear that vast areas are in fact sacrosanct. For starters, half of the entire process – the revenue side – is effectively forbidden territory. Not only is Abbott planning an completely separate tax review, but he made the traditional opposition pre-election commitment not to increase taxes. In theory the Commission could tinker with the system, but in practice it is pretty limited in its options. The carbon and mining taxes are to be abolished and the current system of payments to the states and territories will remain until the full tax review – and even then there is a pledge not to increase the GST.

But Abbott’s promises went much further: there are to be no reductions in three of the four biggest portfolios: health, education and defence. Again, this leaves room for a bit of micro-management; the Commission can juggle the available funds to accord with its own priorities, provided, once again, they accord with Abbott’s own: for instance, he has already committed to removing Labor’s means test on the private health insurance rebate, no matter what. So, with more than half the budget already declared a nogo area, the Commission is left with welfare – though not, it

state owned enterprises, which presumably means that the government wants it to do so. But there are not too many of those left and if the states were to part with theirs they would want a massive quid pro quo – one which would only be available through changes to the grants system, which will have to wait on the tax review. All of which leaves the Commission with three fifths of five eighths of not very much, which may explain the short time given to its members to do their analysis and prepare their report. And they should have little trouble doing so, given that the chair-

Hockey finds himself bound by Abbott-inspired policies which he knows are at best silly and at worst downright dangerous. by Mungo MacCallum should be added immediately, one very big ticket item: Abbott’s pet parental leave scheme. Seniors have also been promised that their benefits will be enlarged. And the National Disability Insurance Scheme, enthusiastically embraced by Abbott during the campaign, may also be off limits. John Howard’s welter of middle class welfare measures may be vulnerable, but given that many of them are given as tax benefits rather than direct grants they may be considered more properly part of the tax review than what is left of the Commission of Audit. In fact the Commission’s main task may be to clean up the plethora of small promises made during the campaign, deliberately targeted handouts whose removal would cause voter anger out of all proportion to any economic benefit that might be gained. We are told that the Commission may consider privatisation of both commonwealth and

man, Tony Shepherd is a former president of the Business Council of Australia and the head of the Commission’s secretariat, Peter Crone, is the Council’s chief economist. The BCA is one of the more conservative of Australia’s business lobby groups, with a long standing policy of resisting wage increases, demanding tax breaks for its members and defending every aspect of corporate welfare while condemning much public welfare as wasteful and extravagant. And there will be no serious opposition to this becoming the Commission’s dominant view. The other members consist of the former Howard minister Amanda Vanstone and three public servants: Peter Boxall, an ardent free marketeer who worked as Peter Costello’s chief of staff, Tony Cole, a former treasury secretary, and Robert Fisher, a ex-bureaucratic heavy from Western Australia. Not too many closet socialists or bleed-

ing hearts among that lot. There has been some protest at the one-sided make up of the Commission; surely it would have been reasonable to include at least one voice from the other side, someone to speak on behalf of those who receive and depend on government benefits and who could make the case for their retention – or perhaps even a critic of big business, someone willing to point out the cosseted nature of so many industries and the extent of the protection, subsidies and favours Tony Shepherd’s members receive from the taxpayers. But this was never in the script: Abbott promised the Commission of Audit in the context of ranting about unsustainable debt and deficit, a budget emergency, the overwhelming urgency of the need to do something about the hideous morass into which Labor had delivered the nation. Of course, the emergency is suddenly over: Joe Hockey has insouciantly raised the debt ceiling by two thirds, borrowed an extra $9 billion for the Reserve Bank and allowed the promise of returning to surplus to recede yet further into the never never. And he, like Malcolm Turnbull and Greg Hunt, finds himself bound by Abbott-inspired policies which he knows are at best silly and at worst downright dangerous – policies which sounded terrific as three word slogans in opposition but which are manifestly unsuited to the actual process of government. The Commission of Audit is there simply to provide cover: to produce a report the government can use to justify its own rhetoric. And of course if it all comes undone, the Commission will make a very convenient scapegoat. Q See Mungo’s video at

Letters Oil crunch You want to know what I think is really fucking stupid? Oil production has flat-lined for five years and will soon begin to decrease as the difficulty of getting the oil increases. But here we are pretending nothing is happening. Instead of using this precious stuff which took us out of the choking 19th century to build a renewables revolution post haste before this basis of our world unravels and leaves us fighting over scraps in a world of failed states. That is what I think is fucking stupid. When the oil crunch happens it will happen very quickly and irreversibly because the rapidly increasing worldwide demand will exacerbate the supply problem. Serious international conflict is likely and Australia’s backup supplies are hopelessly small. I would like to see many of us, most of us, all of us who still have a sense of truth, to act now as if reality were real and not some subjective fantasy that can be wished away. That means to stop lying to ourselves and accepting the lies of others, and make substantial personal commitments, investments, and changes in

our transport, energy, and food systems. We need to be a positive and sustainable example to the billions who are struggling to emulate us. Sapoty Brook Mullumbimby

Koala plans Cr Duncan Dey alleged last week (Letters, October 22) I swore at a councillor at the most recent Byron Council meeting. The word ‘cur’ is not classified as a swear word. The dictionary defines it as a mongrel dog – especially a worthless or inferior breed, a base person, a person who is not well liked. My use of it was in response to a councillor who claimed that I had destroyed koala habitat on my land. The statement was made without any proof whatsoever, and was an obvious attempt to create an inflamed situation before I spoke in public access at the council meeting. Cr Dey, you are only making a small amount of what actually transpired at the recent council meeting available to the public in your letter to suit your interests – which were defeated in a vote 7–2 against your position.

Council wastes time on holiday letting issue I owe Byron Council planning director Ray Darney a partial apology. I accused him of failing to inform councillors that holiday letting is illegal, when he had actually done so. The apology is partial because he provided his advice only via an internal council memo, a document that does not normally become public. His public comments in the agenda for the last council meeting were scant and evasive, consistent with every other document of his that I’ve seen on that subject. So that the holiday letting issue might finally, finally be publicly clarified I now quote from said memo – being Doc

E 2013/55094: ‘…the holiday letting of dwelling houses in [Byron] Shire is also unlawful under the Byron LEP 1988 and in breach of the Environmental Planning & Assessment Act 1979’. I hope that finally settles the matter for Cr Di Woods and particularly for the Holiday Letting Organisation, which has long claimed that it has legal advice that the practice is legal but refuses to release that advice. Is the HLO a registered organisation with formal office-bearers? Is it legally feasible for Council to enter into a memorandum of understanding with this

organisation, as being considered by Council? Can the HLO legally collect bonds from its members to ensure guests behave themselves? I’ve said in the past that you can’t enter into a legally binding agreement to do something illegal. If holiday letting is illegal in the residential 2(a) zone how then can Council set up precincts where it is supposed to be okay, ie a system where some are permitted to do it and others not? Apart from the legal issues I’ve raised above there is also the question of Council insurance liability if it appears to condone holiday letting – which, because of its illegality,

must be uninsurable. There are many legal reasons then for Council not to waste its time or resources in this information vacuum, yet councillors plough on regardless – and Ray Darney looks on in silent bemusement. Apparently state government representatives have addressed council workshops and assured councillors that legal changes will be made to deal with the problems. Until that happens and until you know where the goalposts are and what the rules of the game are, why would you waste your energy? Fast Buck$ Coorabell

The council voted to have the matter further explored and evidence was produced at the meeting where it was decided the draft koala plan of management is seriously flawed and requires more work to ‘get it right’. This draft report comes from a committee you have sat on for many months. It’s a pity it got to this under your stewardship and the draft

plan was not presented in an acceptable manner to be put on public display. I also said at the meeting the councillor should put up or shut up. He has a long history of attempting to stop me undertaking legal ventures on my land. His attempts to stop me presenting events there, in the now debunked and discredited Byron Events Policy, are further proof of his

crusade against my company. As the only landowner in our shire who actually has a koala plan of management we presented specialist advice through findings from the Koala Research Centre from the University of Queensland at the meeting to give Council further insight on a scientific – as against emotional – basis in the implementation of the Byron Draft Koala Policy. These scientific findings need to be addressed if the policy is to have any level of

credibility and the council voted 7–2 for that to occur. Peter Noble Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm

Are cyclists a menace or a blessing? Q I

didn’t read W B Crompton’s letter, but reading the reactions of Dave Lisle and Robin Harrison (Letters, October 22) gave me enough information to want to bring this film to his attention, and everybody’s attention for that matter: http://bit.ly/ambik. It is possible there are alternatives to traffic congestion in Byron Bay. All we have to do is vote for a council that is daring to take the risk. Eka Eiff Ocean Shores

Nowhere in my previous letter did I complain about overtaking cyclists or suggest that they shouldn’t be allowed on the roads. In fact, I like following them. All those tightlypacked bottoms bouncing up and down. I make a game of it, you know, which one is male, which one is female. It’s usually disappointing; they’re mostly old hippies trying to flush their lungs and keep their hearts going. I don’t see the difference between as near to the left or the extreme left, but there probably is. Q

I am not impatient with cyclists at all but feel that as road users they should have to pay like all the other vehicles. W B Crompton Mullumbimby Q Regarding the letters from D Lisle and R Harrison attacking W B Crompton’s letter from last week. Nowhere in his letter did Crompton express any fear or intimidation from cyclists. I raced bikes for many years and saw countless acts of what we at the time called heroic stupidity from motorists trying to pass in impossible situations. Thus I understood Crompton’s point and agree with him that riders should have to pay a fee as do all other road users. Certainly those who use the highways and main roads on a regular basis. Perhaps Mr Lisle and Mr Harrison feel some guilt that causes them to react so strongly to a perfectly sensible suggestion. J Warren Rocklea, Queensland

Q Recent letters identified the rights of bicycle riders on our roads and the safety issues faced. But there is a danger that the discussion may end up in a barrage of insults thrown across the divide separating riders and drivers. I’ve been riding a bike in Byron for a good many years but I’ve also ridden in many countries around the world and, by comparison, Byron drivers come up to be relatively considerate of riders. Some ugly exceptions to be sure, and I’ve had some very close calls. There are dangerous fools on both sides of the debate, but it is the bicycle rider that too often ends up in the ambulance. We all need to recognise that we share a common road and that riders have similar rights to every other vehicle. We also have similar responsibilities. I may get well pissed off when a car or truck shoots by, failing to recognise that it’s my life they’re putting  at serious risk. I also accept that there are plenty of riders who create problems with just

plain dumb riding. The answer is achingly obvious. We’ll all be better off when every road user learns – and practises – a bit of respect and consideration for every other user.

Ways to fix the alcohol problem in Byron Bay Q The Echo article on October

15 detailing the presentations to the NSW Parliamentary Inquiry did not manage to include all submissions. Presentations by Last Drinks at 12 and by representatives of our local councils were not included in the article. Last Drinks at 12 presented the case that bringing back the last sale of alcohol and looking at reducing the exposure of the young to alcohol advertising would significantly fix the problem. Studies done in Australia and overseas show that if alcohol venues stop the sale of alcohol earlier by an hour, alcohol violence and related harms are reduced by 17–20 per cent. Closing three hours ear-

lier would result in close to 60 per cent reduction if other measures were adopted, like making the voluntary Byron Liquor Accord measures mandatory, stopping other new late licences, bringing in a Byron Liquor Precinct and looking at the times of closure of bottle shops. These are the only measures that would stop people coming in from other areas like the Gold Coast to abuse the town. They would not bother to come if the venues were closed. The intervention would be free, the police have stated that they would be happy with it and it would bring about huge relief to the nurses, ambulance officers, doctors and other frontline staff. More expensive measures

like lighting have been shown to reduce non-domestic assault, but have done little to reduce alcohol-related incidents. CCTV can catch offenders after the event, but not prevent them. Extra fines have not shown long-term benefit, and extra police just result in more arrests with no reduction in incidents. Other towns where the last sale of alcohol has been brought back have become revitalised through the opening of more varied night life options. More jobs are created in new venues as those who don’t use the towns return once it is safer. The fear of loss of jobs need not be a reality if venues change their business model.

continued from page 11 dentist I do not ordinarily use fluoride in my practice, as an individual I use a fluoride toothpaste and as a dad I use a fluoride toothpaste on my kids. Initial water fluoridation schemes from the 50s to the early 80s were a crude but seemingly successful (as reflected in caries rate data)

public health measure of systemic fluoride treatment. But from the early 80s onwards improvements in caries prevention, widespread use of fluoride toothpastes and better oral hygiene are now by far the main contributing factors to a decrease in caries rates, irrespective of a fluoridated water supply. Systemic fluoride treat-

ments benefit a very small number of the population for a small amount of time (kids with unerupted developing teeth with access to a town water supply). Surely a more targeted scheme is a more cost effective and ultimately more beneficial approach. The predominant, beneficial, caries-preventing effects of fluoride on erupted teeth

Council would save money and not have to clean up the vandalism. If we want to go out and party, we’ll go out and party; early last sale of alcohol doesn’t have to change that. We’ll adapt. Byron has a great international name, the Byron brand is here to stay, the town’s not going to shut down. We need to ensure it remains the healthy Byron brand, not one tarnished by alcohol-related harm. Graham Truswell Coorabell Q While

fully supporting efforts to diminish excessive drunkenness and violence in the town, I am sceptical that just restricting trading hours is at the tooth surface. Topical application of fluoride allows an ion exchange in the enamel’s crystalline structure, making it more resistant to the effects of acids. I don’t believe fluoridating the water supply will have enough of an effect on the Shire’s kids to warrant the costs and risks. Better education on oral hygiene and car-

is likely to be successful. I am old enough to remember in my childhood the six o’clock swill. At that time pubs closed at 6pm and as a result people would buy three drinks at 5.30 and try to drink them all before closing time to emerge more legless than strictly necessary. I am sure there is now a 3am swill operating in Byron and a midnight swill will occur if 12am closing is initiated. I also have grave doubts about the wisdom of releasing lots of young men, their aggression pumped up with alcohol, out onto the streets all at the same time, especially if they are resentful at being ejected. In some ways it would be better if all venues stayed

open till 7am, then as their money ran out or they were refused service as being drunk enough already, people would emerge in trickles rather than floods. But the real question is why people are emerging so overly-intoxicated at any time of the day. The main problem as I see it is that the responsible service of alcohol regulations are not being applied rigorously enough. A more stringent enforcement would likely achieve more than restricting trading hours, although I might also add that I think another liquor outlet in Byron is definitely one more than we need.

Koalas endangered by complacency Dailan Pugh

W

e have long recognised that our iconic koalas are in danger of extinction on the far north coast and, despite having laws in place for 20 years to redress their decline, our governments collude to hasten it. Governments of all persuasions have proven that they are willing to have rules and regulations to protect koala habitat as long as they are ineffective. It is well past time that meaningful and effective protections for koalas were implemented on the far north coast. The principal requirement is the identification, protection and enhancement of core breeding aggregations and the maintenance of corridor linkages between them. While councils fumble, the NSW government is now dismantling the feeble measures aimed at attaining this. With threats increasing and protection declining, people need to now stand up for our koalas if they are to have a future.

Removing habitat We have removed and fragmented koala habitat through land clearing and urban expansion, and we have degraded it through logging. And we continue to do so. The koala’s social system can begin to break down as habitat is degraded and fragmented. As koalas attempt to move between the remaining patches of habitat they are suffering increased mortalities due to vehicle collisions and dog attacks. As they become more inbred and stressed they are increasingly vulnerable to diseases. Global warming is compounding these effects by reducing the nutritional quality and moisture content of gum leaves, causing heat stress, aggravating eucalypt dieback, and increasing the frequency and intensity of droughts and bushfires. Other developing threats are the creation of gasfields in koala habitat near Casino, proposals to burn many thousands of trees from native forests for electricity at Condong and Broadwater, and music festivals in Byron Shire. In this region, for feeding, koalas preferentially select larger (over 30cm diameter) individuals of Tallowwood, Grey Gum, Forest Red Gum and Swamp Mahogany, though also feed on other

species. They have additional requirements for other trees in gullies and the understorey to shelter in. Koala survival depends on maintaining and enhancing our remaining patches of core koala breeding habitat, and enhancing the linkages between these core areas. State Environmental Planning Policy No 44 (Koala Habitat Protection) came into effect in 1995 with the aim to ‘encourage the proper conservation and management of areas of natural vegetation that provide habitat for koalas to ensure a permanent freeliving population over their present range and reverse the current trend of koala population decline’. The coastal population of koalas along the TweedBrunswick coast are in imminent danger of extinction due to major coastal development (notably Kings Forest), bushfires, and because of the severing of the most important hinterland link due to the development of the North Byron Parklands festival site. The genetically distinct coastal population south of the Brunswick River to Broken Head has partially recovered in recent years, though due to its small size (around 240 individuals) is similarly threatened by development of the Bluesfest site and the loss of core habitat and linkages in the proposed West Byron urban development. It is worrying that when the Department of Planning was considering development proposals for North Byron Parklands and West Byron they recognised that Koala Plans of Management (KPOM) were required, though considered that these could be done after the developments had been approved. Byron Shire Council is currently considering a Comprehensive Koala Plan of Management (CKPOM) for the coastal section of its LGA, though has put this on hold because councillors did not like the reporting of impacts of the Blues Festival.

Attempts by Byron Shire Council and Tweed Council to include high-quality koala habitat into environmental zones last year were thwarted by the intervention of Natonal Party MPs Don Page and Thomas George to excise proposed environmental protection zones from far north coast Local Environmental Plans. They went further by prohibiting the identification of wildlife corridors in LEPs. So 18 years after the adoption of SEPP 44 it has done very little to safeguard koalas because of a lack of will to implement it. When we finally started to make progress the NSW government intervened to stop it. Now they intend to get rid of SEPP 44. In the Byron LGA defacto protection for koalas has effectively been provided in rural areas by a Tree Preservation Order that has been in place since 1986, though the NSW government is also getting rid of this. Their intent is to make the Native Vegetation Act the only protection available in rural areas throughout the region. There are already numerous exemptions for clearing which have no regard to koala habitat, and these are being expanded. The only specific mechanisms that will be available to protect koalas in rural areas are logging codes of practice for public and private land. Given the recent attempts by the community to enforce these, the NSW government is now also intent on getting rid of them.

at Whian Whian (near Dunoon). Where the Forestry Corporation had identified two such trees, the community identified 26 along with core koala breeding habitat. Given the NSW government’s increasingly desperate attempts to meet its unsustainable timber commitments, it should come as no surprise that they are intending to rewrite the logging codes next year. Getting rid of the requirements to identify and protect koala high-use trees is high on their list. It is our local National Party representatives, Don Page, Thomas George, and Geoff Provest, who are behind these proposals to gut the existing protections for koalas and burn native forests for electricity. If you care, then they are the ones you need to convince to provide meaningful protection for core koala habitat and linkages. Please hold them to account. In the meantime see if you can convince Byron Shire councillors to stop stuffing around and ensure they exhibit and adopt their Koala Plan of Management without further delays.

Rogue logging For public lands the Forestry Corporation is required to thoroughly search for koala scats ahead of logging to identify and protect Koala High Use Areas (HUAs). It wasn’t until the North East Forest Alliance caught the Forestry Corporation logging Koala HUAs in Royal Camp State Forest (near Casino) last year that their refusal to properly search for koala scats and identify Koala HUA’s was publicly exposed after 15 years of avoiding this requirement. For private lands loggers are not required to look for koala high-use trees, or any other threatened species, and therefore they are not usually protected. This wasn’t publicly exposed until the local community recently intervened to identify koala high-use trees on a private property being logged by the Forestry Corporation

Killing wildlife Logging starts in suburbia. Every week Council approves the removal of a number of big trees for different reasons. We replace most of this emasculated or destroyed vegetation with palms, often not native. Consequently many animals, insects, bats and birds have nothing to feed on or nowhere to live. And with all the cats roaming the streets at night, they have no place to hide. In parts of Suffolk Park the variety of birds has decreased dramatically, possums and bats are now rare. Humans are the poorer for it, with less colours and sounds to appreciate. Could Council find a way to encourage the planting of vegetation attracting more native wildlife to suburbia? Isabelle Delmotte  Suffolk Park Last week, a nest of fairy wrens was born in among the grevillea ground cover outside our garage. Last night, my husband spotted one of a couple of notorious cats that their owners allow to prowl our rural area each night. Today, I write with a heavy heart as our grevillea ground cover is deathly silent. It is with great frustration, anger and sadness that I plead with cat owners to keep your bloody cats in! If you insist on having one, have a conscience and keep your killers behind closed doors. Samala Heart Possum Creek

out of the Bag HE’S BEEN DESCRIBED BY BONO AS A ‘GENIUS FILMMAKER’; STEPHEN FRY BELIEVES HIM TO BE A SKILFUL FACILITATOR WHO POSSESSES ‘THE REMARKABLE ABILITY TO LIGHT FIRES UNDER RELUCTANT PEOPLE’. JAMIE CATTO IS THE CO-FOUNDER OF DANCE GROUP FAITHLESS AND LAUNCHED THE GRAMMY-NOMINATED 1 GIANT LEAP ONTO THE WORLD. HE IS A CREATIVE MENTOR ABLE TO FLICK THAT SWITCH TO CREATE AND GENERATE PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL BREAKTHROUGHS. HE IS COMING TO BYRON AND MULLUMBIMBY TO CONDUCT WORKSHOPS AS PART OF HIS NATIONAL TOUR.

Catto’s belief is that ‘the link between what you learn as an artist and what you learn to be an affective creative person is the same.’ As it turns out, musicians, through the very nature of their practice, already observe dynamic and connected communication. ‘Musicians innately learn how to listen properly and they learn how to tune into what they are listening to at the same time and channel through their fingertips – thats how we should meet the world. Being totally present, but realising it’s a dual path, that we are listening to what is going on around us, concentrating, and responding as well.’

BEACH, BOY AND BEAR We have a double pass to see Boy & Bear at the Beach Hotel when they play on Thursday 7 November. Readers should email gigs@echo.net.au with subject header ‘bear it'.

Catto is a fast talker. He is dynamic. He is confronting. He is inspired, and if I were to be honest, I’d have to say he’s a little bit overwhelming. He has that immense bigness of character that washes over you, with a clear mandate about what is needed to keep an individual on a creative and meaningful trajectory. He wasn’t always so focused. In fact Catto experienced depression and anxiety as a teenager and had an extreme and debilitating sense of alienation.

types of people – sensitive people and people like me. No, that’s not true; we are all sensitive; we get ashamed of it, and we don’t give ourselves credit in the way we look after ourselves. Creatively we lack the knowledge.’ One thing Catto is clear about in his teaching is that he is not an advocate on the death of the ego. ‘I don’t teach ascetic practice. I want you to bring your flavour; I am not about alienating the ego. It is a very deep experience and I don’t agree with spiritual teachings that say to amputate the ego, because the ego is a huge teacher. It is hilarious and illuminating. I am about the fun and the juiciness of the human experience. I want to make it amazing, encourage you to do things that scare you. ‘There is a big difference from being emotional, being reactive, or being emotional and sitting in the fire of emotions. You have to feel those terrible emotions, feel the blood, and still being you, being non-reactive but still remaining in the middle of it all.

‘We have definitely been socialised to stay on top of things that make us feel out of ‘It began from very early on in my late control or exposed. We want what is normal teens; I was having extremely debilitating meltdowns and panic attacks. I was so over- or appropriate. Those that are louder, or sensitive and unable to translate what was more chaotic, or individual don’t always fit with what everyone is comfortable with. going on around me. We are then put into conformist, good girl/ I couldn’t deal with it and I wasn’t given the naughty girl, about getting it right… and tools on how to be. it’s really fucked up and because of that we hide so much. And it’s hard to stand We look at the world like there are two

outside the brochure we see of ourselves. The huge part of the workshop is to dissolve that; it all happens in the beautiful uniqueness that we have edited out, it is in the wackiness that we are free.

to find individual genius – by dissolving everything the genius of everything is there.’ Jamie will be screening 1 Giant Leap with a Q&A to follow in Byron on 7 November; conducting a three-hour dance experience in Mullum on 8 November; facilitating an evening on 9 November, also in Mullumbimby, exploring relationships and intimacy. He is also conducting a twoday master class in Mullumbimby 9 and 10 November. For bookings, prices, times and full details go to www.chrishooper.com.au or phone (03) 9844 5379.

‘The workshop bases itself on the premise that we have already got ourselves down to a smaller version of ourselves, and we are terrified to be seen to fail. What our creativity gives us is a kind of intimacy where the parts of us are melted, through lyrics, or lovemaking or a goal. and these are the unity events. It’s an amazing mixture of empowerment when you realise the David sculpture was already there when Venues are Mullumbimby Civic Hall and Michelangelo got the rock – we don’t have Byron Community Centre.

See Mandy live at www.echonetdaily.net.au TO FLUORIDE OR NOT TO FLUORIDEâ&#x20AC;Ś Right now the fluoridation debate is in full swing, with supporters and detractors becoming embroiled in a conversation about the pros and cons of dosing our water. Should we or should we not implement the controlled addition of fluoride to our water supply? With public water fluoridation rates in NSW around 90 per cent or higher, we are one of the few areas that remains fluoride free. We also have the highest rates of non-immunisation. Basically, we are not a community that likes paternalistic intervention â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;for our own goodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. We like the freedom to make our own health decisions, without having them imposed by the state, a well-meaning local council, or even your mum. Let me get this straight: I have chosen to immunise my children because personally I am pro-immunisation, and while I have some faith in the concept of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;herd immunityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see any point in administering fluoride. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like you need herd immunity to protect you from tooth decay. Tooth decay is not contagious. As far as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m concerned, your teeth are not my responsibility. If you choose to drink Coke, eat no fruit and vegetables, eat processed food and not brush your teeth, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see why I should have to poison my

children for the sake of assisting your wellbeing. In fact, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit of a lowest-common-denominator strategy. Fluoride is poison. What sane person poisons their own water supply? I thought that was called terrorism. The argument is that lower socioeconomic groups canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t access dental care, so we need to increase fluoridation to guard against tooth decay. Lower socioeconomic groups also canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t access Botox; should we get that added as well? If dental hygiene is such a major issue in poorer communities in a first-world community such as Australia, instead of adding poison to the mix why not provide better dental care free? Why not provide fruit and vegetable platters at school? At the pub? Hey, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an idea. Why not add extra fluoride to soft drink? When it comes to rotting the pegs out of most kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; heads, I reckon soft drink is a major culprit. If every sugary treat also contains the appropriate dose of fluoride, wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that provide a more accurately targeted user intervention? Why poison everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water if the devilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the cola? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ethical to dose an entire population because it removes the ability for people who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want fluoride to not participate. And there are the concerns about fluoride. For a start not that much is known about the long-term effects of ingestion. There may even be links between fluoridation programs and certain types of cancer. Fluoride can also pose a health hazard to people with kidney disease who have no ability to opt out. In a democracy, when it comes to personal health, a person should be able to opt in and opt out. There should be some sort of consent involved.

As for the need for fluoridation and the effectiveness, well as far as I can tell thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just not enough research out there. I put forward my own anecdotal case. I grew up drinking a non-fluoridated water source so Mum gave me little pink fluoride tablets every day until I was six, when we were connected to the town supply. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it did much for my teeth because I have about eight fillings. And Mum was a toothbrushing nazi. However, none of my children has ever been given fluoride in tablet or water form. Not one of them has ever had a filling. They have zero tooth decay. How can this be so? My children are un-fluoridated yet their teeth are perfect? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even make them brush their teeth. I reckon theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be lucky to have an 80 per cent hit rate. It is suggested that the fact that so much of the food we eat already contains fluoride (from being irrigated with existing fluoridated water sources), that the toothpaste we use contains the F-word, that drinks contain it, and that basically we are living in a highly fluoridated world. Our environments already contain so many chemicals that we have no hope of avoiding; why would you voluntarily opt to up our toxin load? So, cowboy, put the fluoride down and move away from the water supply. Otherwise whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next? Monsantoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s special DDT-infused air to protect us from the possible health risks of mosquitoes?

7 MULLUM MUSIC’S BIG NIGHT

OPENING NIGHT AT THE MULLUM MUSIC FESTIVAL IS MULLUM’S PREMIER NIGHT OF NIGHTS. WITH MORE THAN EIGHT ARTISTS HAILING FROM IOWA, BERLIN, SLOVENIA, GAMBIA, SYDNEY, MELBOURNE AND MULLUMBIMBY AND SHOWCASING ON TWO STAGES WITH TWO LARGER-THAN-LIFE MCS! IT’S ONE BIG PARTY IN THE TRADITION OF THE 90S BIG GIG. ONE OF THE JAWDROPPING ACTS OF THE NIGHT IS SURE TO BE ALUKA, A THREE-PIECE EXPERIMENTAL VOCAL GROUP. SEVEN SPOKE WITH ANNABELLE TUNLEY ABOUT THE CREATIVE LIAISON SHE SHARES WITH RACHAEL HEAD AND SALLY MORTENSEN.

What are the qualities in the voice that you look for when creating music? Is it like orchestrating some sort of vocal soundscape? I guess we let the songs and the subject matter or mood of the song guide us. It is like creating a soundscape and it is a case of trial and error to get the right sounds with the right notes. We have no hidden secrets or tricks; we follow no formula and use no music theory. We hit record on our phones and see where the song takes us. How did you girls happen upon each Do you find yourself hunting other? Rachael and Sally have known each for interesting places to sing – other since high school but we all came environments that change the way you together while doing a TAFE music course sound? They seem to find us! I guess that when we were still in our teens. That was was the inspiration for the album! Our back in the day when TAFE cost $250 a year band is so portable that we often find with a healthcare card. Good times. ourselves singing when we’re around each other and discovering interesting spaces. What is it about the human voice that can be so powerful? The human voice What are you experimenting with at is so powerful because it is universal. It the moment? We’re writing material for doesn’t matter who you are, we’ve all got a kids’ album! We had a great response one! It’s this common ground that makes from children for our last release and people’s singing so relatable and also awe one of our ladies has a little boy so we’re inspiring. I think… thinking of writing an album for the little To start with can you tell me a little about your initial inspiration for Aluka? The inspiration behind Aluka was the members’ meeting each other! The band is like a mutual appreciation society for one another and we thought we’d formalise that appreciation further by writing, playing and hence spending lots of time together. The choice to make acapella or vocal music was a happy secondary accident.

TAKING IT SLOW

Take It Slow is the second album from Bobby Alu. It is an album delivering this philosophy. Catch him at the Byron Brewery on Sunday, 6pm start, free entry.

CUSHION CONCERT Come and celebrate a lifetime of music education in the heart of the northern rivers at your Conservatorium’s Open Day on Saturday. A feature of the day’s festivities is the FREE Cushion CONcert showcasing talent of the staff and students of the Northern Rivers Conservatorium.

a fusion of blues and Tom Waits-inspired ballads. 7pm.

SPOOKY UKEY NIGHT Thursday 31 October is Halloween. Not a problem – it’s just country ‘spooked’ up. The uke crew will be playing scary country songs featuring the vocal talents of Clelia Adams, Kathryn Jones, Lou Bradley and Sarah Buckley. With guest pedal steel, mandolin, and prizes for best Halloween costume, this will be an unmissable night of FUN! Don’t miss out. Entry: Adult $10 | Kids FREE.

ones. Incidentally, it’s not that different from writing any album! You certainly don’t have to dumb it down. Kids are super smart. What have been the highlights for Aluka in your few short years together? Recording our album was a dream. We could not have asked for a more fun process or to be so proud of the end result. There is something almost nostalgic about three women in matching frocks singing together – The Pointer Sisters, The Supremes etc; do you think you borrow from this? What of this tradition do you set out to turn on its head? Well, we certainly don’t wear matching frocks! We’d never agree on the style! We leave that to our dear friends The Nymphs, who do it much better than we ever could! I think we borrow the sisterhood, but in truth we probably learnt that from the Spice Girls and Destiny’s Child with which we grew up. I feel like we plumb very different territory from the Pointer Sisters and the Supremes so I guess our aim is to show a different side of the acapella

genre. A more modern and slightly more experimental side in both lyrical content and music. What should we expect for your performance at Mullum Music Festival? To see music performed that is equal parts innovative and impressive and as the songs are catchy. We love performing together and love introducing people to a brand of acapella little practised. We love seeing people’s pre-conceptions of what is sometimes seen as a daggy genre melt away when we sing. It’s a good feeling. Opening night tickets are strictly limited and always sells fast.

As part of the process, NORPA is hosting a free community event at Lismore City Hall this Friday at 5.30pm. The Echo had a chat with some of the leading Bundjalung artists involved. What is your connection to Bundjalung Country? Rhoda Roberts: I am a Widjubul woman. The other nation that runs through my bloodline is the Gamilaroi on my grandmother’s side. Djon Mundine: I am Bandjalung – I was born and lived in South Grafton. My father Roy Mundine comes from Baryugil. Souls’ Day service at 6.30; and a standalone concert on Sunday in Bangalow at St Kevin’s in Deacon St at 3 pm. The first two will be by donation, and the Bangalow concert is $10 and $8 concession. Shortly after these events, Bruce will be leaving the north coast to live in Tasmania. So it’s actually his final north coast Requiem – don’t miss it.

David Page: My father is a respected elder of the Munaldjali clan of the Beaudesert region southeast Queensland, just over the QLD–NSW border. Melissa Lucashenko: My mum’s granny was a Tweed River woman removed to Queensland at eight years of age. Why are you excited to come to here to make this work? Rhoda Roberts: I am honoured that NORPA recognises this and proud and delighted that we have this wonderful platform to revisit old stories.

Those stories make us who we are today. Djon Mundine: To be part of a specific Bandjalung project in my country is incredibly exciting. What are some of the inspirations and aspirations for this work? Rhoda Roberts: What truly excites me is the number of artists, choreographers, composers, musicians, curators,

E ARIES: It’s hard staying generous when others aren’t, so establishing a fair balance of give and take may require deep listening on your part this week. Broker a peace treaty, or at least negotiate a ceasefire to diminish hostilities. Keep expanding beyond personal to the panoramic perspective. . F TAURUS: Yes, it’s a tense, confusing time for relationships, but fortunately you can still get plenty done. Not grand sweeping achievements, more the satisfying sort of background research, feasibility studies and fine tuning that will have you poised to take off when conditions are more auspicious after November 10. G GEMINI: Relationships simmer in this week’s pressure cooker, so be extra careful about how you express yourself. If a past error comes back to bite you, acknowledge any embarrassing mistakes on your part, then reformat your strategy so you don’t keep repeating them in the future. H CANCER: Grumpy, grouchy, cranky, cantankerous, picky, twitchy and stressy – a septet of vertically challenged Disney characters?

cinemareview CAPTAIN PHILLIPS

There aren’t a lot of big star actors who can convincingly get inside the skin of the ordinary bloke next door like

Tom Hanks. As the master of a supertanker sailing around the Horn of Africa he is pudgy, bespectacled and primarily

concerned with getting his job done – which makes the crisis with which he must deal even more confronting. His ship is boarded by four Somali pirates and, to director Paul Greengrass’s lasting credit, they are shown to be desperate men whose deprived socio-economic ‘status’ is unimaginable to us in the West – the opening shot has Phillips and his wife worrying about their son’s future, then cuts to the pirates’ leader, Muse (Barkhad Abdi), sleeping on the dirt floor of his tin humpy. Greengrass,

better known for the actionpacked ‘Bourne’ blockbusters, was also responsible for the best of the post-9/11 movies, United 93, which this resembles, not only in its close study of end-game terror and the survival instincts that it provokes, but also for the manner in which it allows the bad guys to be human beings. The story is based on the 2009 hijacking of the Maersk Alabama and Greengrass takes no glamorous liberties in his realisation of the event on screen. From the stressful pursuit as the pirates’

outboarddriven boat goes thumping through the ocean swell in the wake of its quarry, to the seizure at gunpoint, to the gripping third act in which Phillips is held hostage by his captors in an enclosed lifeboat as US Navy SEALS combatants prepare a rescue operation, the suspense never lets up. It’s a masterly work, and Greengrass is expertly served by regular collaborators Barry Ackroyd (cinematography) and Christopher Rouse (editing) in creating the gut-

by the Englishman Luke Walker’s apolitical quest to find the fabulous deposit of outback gold claimed to have been discovered by Harold Lasseter while he was lost in Central Australia. Returning to the area years later, Lasseter died trying to relocate the seam and his body was found in 1931, with a diary that left subsequent explorers none the wiser. Over the course of his investigations (which brought him to nearby Tabulam), Walker’s obsession with the mystery of the gold’s whereabouts gradually but inexorably became redirected at solving the riddle of the man himself. Who exactly was Lasseter? Was he a charlatan or visionary? What other

extraordinary projects did he envisage (his design for a bridge that would span Sydney Harbour was uncanny for its prescience). Walker’s companion for much of the time was Lasseter’s 85-year-old son Bob, a sprightly, cheery fellow with an Amish beard and an indomitable spirit to match. He has been looking for his father’s reef for yonks and it is his good-natured openness and the working relationship he forms with Walker that give the film its unforced intimacy. It seems to be generally the case that in any such venture, it is the searcher, fired from within, who finds himself and his motives in the spotlight. And so it is here, for no matter

how closely his tracks are followed, Lasseter, like his gold, remains ever distant while Walker himself gets closer to us as he is drawn deep into sacred Aboriginal terrain. Enlivened by rudimentary but helpful animation and old reenactments, interspersed with

rare archival footage, including excerpts from a 1950s Lowell Thomas TV documentary and another featuring the matinee idol narration of James Mason, Walker’s movie is refreshingly personal and intriguing. ~ John Campbell

the pair has 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 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

churning tension. But it is the desperate face-off between Phillips and Muse that absorbs. We should not be surprised by Hanks’s performance – his talents are known to us – but first-timer Abdi is spellbinding in his bitter fatalism, as is Faysal Ahmed as Najee, the uncompromising firebrand. A must-see. ~ John Campbell

LASSETER'S BONES The re-telling of Australian history has degenerated into a squabble between two factions, each of which derides the other in order to claim the

high moral ground. If, however, you are committed to neither the black armband nor the white blindfold, you will be both surprised and absorbed

How did you come to live here? I came to live here because of my love of the ocean, and in Byron Bay I have the opportunity to maintain a good balance between my work and my love for the natural environment and surfing. Could you tell us a little about your business/career background? I studied my profession in Wellington, New Zealand, where I worked for five years, then moved to Queenstown for the next eight years. During my career I have worked under a couple of excellent head chefs who taught me a lot about the industry and how to evolve, keep learning and earn respect as a chef. Who/what is your greatest influence? My greatest influence is the people who eat the meals I have prepared. The feedback they provide gives me the impetus to move forward in my profession, continually experimenting with new flavours, always aiming to provide a meal to be savoured. What advice have you been given that has served you well in the kitchen? I have been given two very valuable pieces of advice. Firstly to TASTE everything and secondly to always, as head chef, guide everyone in your kitchen to work as a cohesive unit. What is the most rewarding thing about what you do? My job is rewarding when a diner â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;lovesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; their meal. In the kitchen we work behind the scenes and one of the best rewards is to have a customer compliment the chef â&#x20AC;&#x201C; then I know that their experience of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;dining outâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; has met all their expectations. How would you describe your restaurant? At The Junction we strive to create a quality casual dining experience with a focus on great steaks and seafood dishes in a friendly inviting atmosphere. Our menu is designed to cater for any tastes, and we are very family friendly. We also pride ourselves on offering a delicious menu for pre-dinner and after-dinner cocktails. What are your opening hours? Opening hours are currently from 11.30am through to 12 midnight daily with the exception of Sunday when we close at 10pm. Food is available throughout the day and night and we will soon be

opening for breakfast. A great start to the day would be to sit on our deck with your paper and eat your breakfast before heading off to your day. Are you licensed and/or BYO? The Junction is fully licensed. Do you have any regular music performances or events at your restaurant? We have regular live music with local artists. Local artists are important to us and we plan to increase the entertainment over summer. What is your most popular dish? Our most popular dish at the moment is panseared snapper served with pumpkin, coconut, chilli puree and an Asia-inspired salad dressed with fresh lime and sesame oil. What is your personal favourite? My personal favourite is hard to choose. I find it hard to go past a good perfectly cooked steak but our crisp gnocchi cooked in sage butter with butternut pumpkin, baby spinach, champagne and lemon ricotta would have to be the one for me. Are your customers mostly local or visitors? Our customer base is a good mix of both locals and tourists with many regulars. Why do you think people come to your restaurant rather than another? We have a great flow of both indoor and outdoor dining. Our staff is friendly and attentive and all have a passion to provide customers with exceptional service and, most importantly, the feeling that you are welcome at the venue. How do you cater for diners with special requirements such as vegetarians, vegans and celiacs? During my career I have learnt it is important to cater to the customer and I am happy to make a quick change to a menu item. All you need to do is tell our front of house about allergies, gluten free, no chilli, no garlic etc and your meal will be prepared without any of the additives that will make you wish you had stayed at home. Is there any feedback that your customers consistently give you? Best feedback â&#x20AC;&#x201C; seeing you back next week with more of your friends.

IN MEMORIAM

The Natural Death Centre is hosting its sixth annual Day of the Dead ceremony on Sunday November 10 in Heritage Park, Mullumbimby. The day aims to celebrate loved ones lost, and is part of a global movement that shares and works towards a more natural approach to dying, death and ritual. Co-organiser Anna Parker

says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bring photos or mementos for the fig tree to create a sacred shrine. Choirmaster Peter Lehner will once again present the Mullumbimby Community Choir.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It will start at 3pm with community art and memento making and then the ceremony will be at 4pm. In case of rain the event will be cancelled.

Christos Tsiolkas talks about his new novel Barracuda The Northern Rivers Writersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Centre is presenting one of the most significant names in contemporary Australian literature. Christos Tsiolkas will be in conversation at the Bangalow A&I Hall at 6.30pm on Wednesday October 30. Christos is long established as a respected writer of literary fiction, published globally and translated into many languages. His 2008 novel, The Slap, made him a household name, especially in the wake of the superb ABC adaptation in 2011. Now we welcome his fifth fiction, Barracuda. According to Writersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Centre director Jeni Caffin, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Barracuda, like The Slap, is a steely, provocative and searing gaze turned toward the society in which we

live. It is a novel which dissects our values, our friendships, hopes and dreams, our families. The book is about living in Australia, asking what it means to be a good person. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is a rare chance to meet Christos and discover his willingness to tackle the big topics, the way in which he views modern Australia, the burning issues of class and race and politics and migration and education. And sport. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is a writer at the peak of his powers who fearlessly holds the mirror up to society. Expect a compelling conversation as Christos talks to Mick Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Regan and gear up for a feisty Q&Aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. For bookings and enquiries, go to www.nrwc.org.au or call 6685 5115.

Sport Tyler Wright 2013 ASP runner-up

Tyler Wright – Photo ASP/Poullenot Aquashot.

For Lennox Head surfer Tyler Wright, 2013 has been a breakthrough year on the ASP Women’s World Championship Tour. The 19-year-old has gone from fourth in 2011 and 2012 to a runner-up finish this year, in an epic title race that came down to the final day of the final event. Last week Tyler spoke to the ASP as she was boarding a plane to the US for an end-ofseason Californian vacation. Now that the dust has settled, tell us about your thoughts on your 2013 campaign? It was a good year for me; I had a blast. More importantly the 2013 season for women’s surfing was incredible. The surfing on the women’s tour has been getting better for years, but everyone stepped up and pushed the limits this year and it was awesome to see and be a part of. I changed the way I started to look at things and the way I competed. I started to not really focus on what others were doing and just think about what I want and what works best for me.

What were your emotions on that final day? At the start of the year I just said I want to surf and not get caught up with anything else. I was happy with how I went. I couldn’t have been happier that day. I was psyching for Carissa (Moore) when she won. She’s an incredible surfer. I love her power and pretty much everything about the way she surfs. She’s a great person too and she deserved to win. I wasn’t sad or unhappy, it wasn’t even bitter-sweet; I was just happy to be a part of it all. What was your highlight from the 2013 season? I think the first event was a turning point for me, winning the Roxy Pro Gold Coast. I was surrounded by my family and friends at an event close to home. The way I won in a really close final was really cool. I also had a really tight heat against Dimity (Stoyle) in the second round; it was so close. I remember not knowing which way it would go. It was a whole new thing for me. We came back after a long break, with a new strategy; I was so shaky. That heat was a

big moment; it was me trying out doing things my way; I felt a bit shaky. I won the event in the end; it was a huge moment for me. What lessons can you learn from this year to help you next year? I don’t really know, I don’t really like planning. This year I did most of my surfing in contests, and I didn’t go on many trips that weren’t for events, so next year I want to surf more. I’d like to go to Mexico; I’ve seen videos of Carissa (Moore) and Steph (Gilmore) there and the surf looks incredible. Give us a bit of an insight to the women’s tour. Is it all friendly or do the rivalries get intense? To be honest I don’t really know. I don’t pay attention to all of that stuff. I hang out with Lakey (Peterson) and Carissa and Steph. I don’t go out and look for rivalries and negativity so I only see the good stuff. We are all competitive – it would be hard to be on the tour and not be – but I leave everything in the water and I’m sure all the other girls do too. What are your plans for the rest of 2013? I’m off to the US for a few weeks, then I come home and do a My Bikini tour with Rip Curl up the east coast of Australia, which will be a lot of fun. Then I might have some time off and go to some summer music festivals. I’ve never been to one before and I’m pretty excited. New events, new ASP management, new rookies; what are you most looking forward to about next year’s WCT? It’s going to be an exciting year with Trestles as a new event for the girls; it’s a place that can really showcase

Mullumbimby Tennis Club coaches Justin De Candia and Steve Gort are ready for the tennis season. Photo Tree Faerie.

Who doesn’t love a good game of tennis? From the social to the pro and the prowatcher, tennis is one of the country’s favourite sports. After a wet start to the year, things are about to expand at the Mullumbimby Tennis Club. The management of the club has sought to enhance its coaching capabilities, and with the help of resident coach Justin De Candia, have women’s surfing. I can’t wait to have a heat out there and surf with just one other girl. There’re heaps of rookies too with Nikki (Van Dijk), Dimity (Stoyle), Alessa (Quizon) and Johanne (Defay) joining the tour. It’s an exciting time. The new ASP management have really gotten behind the girls. Rookies always add new energy to the events and I’m sure the level of surfing is going to continue to rise. For more information log on to www.ASPWorldTour. com.

also retained the services of tour player and local Mullum coach Steve Gort to help expand operations at the club. As resident coach Justin has been at the club for seven years and he looks after a wide range of skill levels and ages. Steve has been coaching for four years and has had very good success already with a number of players and, as a tournament player, he made it well into the top 100 in Australia.

Mullumbimby Tennis Club sees this as a great opportunity not only to expand the club and to create local employment but, more importantly, to help people and families to enjoy the great game of tennis.

Land sales shine brighter light on new home building The latest HIA-RP Data Residential Land Report provided by the Housing Industry Association points to further upward momentum in detached house construction in 2013/14. The volume of residential land sales posted strong growth of 18.2 per cent in the June 2013 quarter to reach a level of 17,170. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is the highest quarterly volume achieved since the March quarter of 2010,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said HIA chief Economist Harley Dale. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The recovery in residential land sales is impressive, but from a very low base. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There is a close (lagged) relationship between RP Data-HIA

land sales and the number of detached house starts. Land sales volumes highlight the prospect of further growth in detached house starts in 2013/14 following a modest lift of 3.7 per cent in 2012/13. That would be a very positive outcome for both the new home sector and the wider economy. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The level of sales in 2012/13 was 56,782. Sales are therefore now back to a level equivalent to the GFC trough but no higher â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the level is still 21 per cent below the historical average. Obviously it will be important to see further strong momentum in land sales for some time to come.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;For that to occur there needs to be a keener policy focus on ensuring adequate and affordable shovel-ready land is available. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In terms of residential land prices, growth has generally been modest. A flat June 2013 quarter for the weighted median residential land value saw an increase of only 1.7 per cent over the year, less than general inflation.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; According to RP Dataâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s research director Tim Lawless, the improved vacant land market conditions are in line with the improvements across the broader housing market. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The housing market has been back in growth since mid-2012 with

RESIDENTIAL LAND SALES & MEDIAN LOT VALUE - AUSTRALIA 

both the rate of capital gains and transaction volumes gathering some momentum during 2013. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It should come as no surprise that the Sydney housing market, which remains well undersupplied relative to the rate of population growth and is recording the highest rate of capital gain currently, is one of the primary drivers behind the lift in national vacant land sales. According to the data, the number of land sales across Sydney was 33 per cent higher over the year to the June quarter to reach an elevenyear high. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;While Sydney has posted a solid improvement in land sales, we are also seeing a substantial increase in the number of blocks sold in Melbourne, Brisbane and Adelaide over the June quarter. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The improved number of land sales reflects a higher level of buyer demand, but we need to keep in mind that the figures are moving higher from a low base and we are continuing to record a substantially lower number of land sales than what was recorded during the last growth phase back in 2009/10. Nevertheless, policy makers such as the RBA should see the stronger housing market conditions as reinforcement to the current policy set-

Backlash Since our mention of dying muttonbirds last week, we have learnt that the best people to call for seabird rescue are, strangely enough, Australian Seabird Rescue, either on 6686 2852 or the emergency 24-hour number 0428 862 852. Find out more about their good work at http:// seabirdrescue.org/branches/ north-coast. QQQQ
