Byron marches for political change
Story and photo Eve Jeffery
A reported 3,490 marchers gathered in Apex Park from 9am on Sunday to stand beside at least 100,000 people across the country for the March in March – Australians United for a Better Government, an action preceding the march on Canberra on Monday morning. The message behind the march was the people’s vote of no confidence in the current government’s policies and decisions. The massive crowd blocked traffic for over 20 minutes as it made its way down Jonson Street to Railway Park where it was standing room only, and peaceful protesters spilled out on to the pavement and road. With a list of at least 115 sins committed by prime minister Tony Abbott and his government, Mandy
Nolan played MC to the jam-packed crowd. Speakers, including Delta Kay, Fred McGrady, Kelly Cox, Justin Fields and Mark Robertson, were spurred on by the throng, who responded with an overwhelming ‘boo’ to Tony Abbott. Towards the end the event struck a sour note when MC Mandy Nolan was roughly handled by individuals wishing to address the crowd. The Echo has the scuffle on video and Ms Nolan is considering her response to the incident.
Abbott unaware Mr Abbott’s response to the event nationwide was that the only march he was aware of was the St Patrick’s Day parade in Sydney. According to AAP reports, the March in March event attracted the
largest crowd in Melbourne, where more than 10,000 people – among them parents, students, environmentalists, refugee supporters, cab drivers, teachers and children – gathered in the city centre. About 2,000 swarmed on central Brisbane to show their disdain for the direction taken by Liberal governments and just under 10,000 protested in Sydney, local police told AAP. Many of the headline-grabbing polices of the Commonwealth, NSW, WA and Queensland governments were attacked during an event organisers say is a grassroots, nonpartisan peaceful protest spawned from conversations on social media. The organisers claim March in March has 45,000 Facebook supporters, amassed since the conversation began in January.

Writers festival supports Indigenous Literacy Foundation The Byron Bay Writers Festival has announced it will support the Indigenous Literacy Foundation (ILF) as its new charity partner. Festival director Edwina Johnson believes the fit between the two organisations is perfect: ‘I feel so honoured that we are able to bring such incredible literary talent to the northern rivers. Our association with ILF means we can transfer some of that benefit via fundraising to remote Indigenous communities through the fabulous work of the ILF’. IFL executive director Karen Williams said the Indigenous Literacy Foundation was set up with the support of the Australian Book Industry in 2005. ‘The core aim of the ILF is to address literacy levels and improve the lives and opportunities of Indigenous children living in remote communities. Over the past five years it has delivered over 100,000 books to more than 230 communities. ‘I was over the moon when I received the call from Edwina informing us of the decision to sup-
port our organisation. We are only able to provide these vital literacy resources and publish community literacy projects through the generous support of organisations like the Byron Bay Writers Festival.’ Williams said the funds raised via the festival will help contribute to the organisation’s ability to increase the number of books it sends out in 2014. ‘Book supply is our biggest program area and many homes still do not have books. Less than 36 per cent of people living in a remote community have access to a library’. Johnson believes festival-goers will find a visit to the ILF festival pop-up tent a highly informative experience. ‘I encourage everyone to visit the ILF at the festival to learn more about the issues facing these communities. Many children in these areas don’t encounter written or spoken English until they reach school.’ See more about the Writers Festival at www.byronbaywritersfestival. com.au and the ILF at www.indigenousliteracyfoundation.org.au.

Adults get an education in driving from STEER Story & photo Eve Jeffery
It seems almost every day we hear about horrific car accidents and the tragic loss of lives on our roads. Quite often the kneejerk reaction is to blame our youth but it would appear that adult drivers are just as responsible on many levels. After all, from a young age children spend hundreds of hours behind the person behind the wheel.

Phil Preston is the coordinator of the STEER Project – a youth driver program, who says that the next step in the program is to nip bad practice in the bud, at the place where kids first see driving behaviour. ‘We are hearing some concerning stories and noticing a case of “monkey see, monkey do” when youth start driving’, says Phil. ‘It is important for parents and supervising drivers to set the best example possible.’ ‘Over 150 learner drivers have completed the Safer Drivers Course for Learners with STEER’, says Phil. ‘Now it’s the supervising drivers’ turn.’

Byron Creek flows, like an artery of life, through the heart of Bangalow town and hinterland. In this week in March 1925, a slower, simpler time, people of the Bangalow community designed and created a special area fronting this creek. They called it Bangalow’s Waterfront. In recent years, this much loved and well utilised community recreation area and swimming hole fell into disrepair. The public is now prevented from using the creek pool, which is surrounded by high cyclone mesh.
On Sunday March 23, from 3pm, an event is being held at Bangalow’s Heritage House to launch a community funding program to help pay for the revitalisation of Bangalow Parklands. ‘Our team came up with the idea that anyone could
contribute and help buy a bit of Bangalow,’ said Terry Bleakley from the Bangalow Parklands team (formerly known as the Bangalow Weir Group). ‘The creek swimming area was built and paid for by the community in the 1920s. It now needs repair. ‘We have approached many likely sources of funding, some of which are now coming good.’ The Parklands team has now broadened its vision and devised a masterplan for the entire area, including a bandstand, more trees and nature walks – perhaps a botanic gardens – and improved facilities, like benches and playground equipment. ‘We started getting feedback that people within the Bangalow community would like to be able to participate,’ said Terry. ‘So now you can. We don’t mind if you donate
heaps, or just five dollars. Every dollar counts.’ To launch the appeal to fund the masterplan, wellknown Bangalow journalist Mick O’Regan will be facilitating a panel discussion to highlight the history and merits of the area becoming known once more as the Waterfront at Bangalow.
Weir plan Among the panellists will be Lynn Smith, whose father, Bruce Beckinsale, taught many hundreds of children to swim in the creek swimming pool over decades. Chris Taylor, the Bangalow engineer who came up with a cheaper concept plan to repair the cracked weir, will discuss his design. Brookfarm’s Martin Brook will offer the businessman’s
perspective on the wider value of community endeavours such as this. BigScrub president, Dr Tony Parkes, will speak on the merits of community restoration of our indigenous rainforest and Rivercare’s 12 years’ work around the creek. Byron Shire mayor Simon Richardson, will be asked about the extent of Council’s input. ‘We welcome anyone with a soft spot for the creekside park to come along and join us for a very interesting afternoon,’ added Christobel Munson, from the Parklands team. Afternoon tea will be available at the museum tearooms, or bring a picnic to the park. For more information, phone Terry Bleakley 6687 2525 or Christobel Munson 6687 2244.

GG opens Olley art centre at Tweed
Story & photo Luis Feliu
Governor-General Quentin Bryce officially opened the Margaret Olley Art Centre (MOAC) in Murwillumbah on Saturday, describing it as ‘the most famous rooms in Australian art’. More than 800 invited guests and VIPs attended the Tweed Regional Gallery in Murwillumbah for the gala ceremony to open the $4 million MOAC, an extension of the gallery, which celebrates the life, legacy and works of one of Australia’s most loved artists. It was the last official engagement outside Canberra for the Governor-General before her tenure in the role comes to an end next week.
Olley’s rooms The MOAC includes re-creations of three of the rooms in the late artist’s famous Sydney home, including the Hat Factory and the Yellow Room where she spent many hours painting. Before unveiling the official plaque, the GovernorGeneral told guests the MOAC was a unique project which entrenched the Tweed Regional Gallery as the home of ‘the most famous rooms in Australian art’. She also said regional galleries played an important role in Australia and the Tweed Regional Gal-

lery was ‘one of the best’. Margaret Olley trustee Philip Bacon described the new centre as ‘absolutely stunning’ and ‘a triumph’ which re-created her studio ‘down to the tiniest detail’. ‘The only sad note is that the star of the show, that artistic rock star Margaret Olley, isn’t here to see it herself,’ Mr Bacon said. ‘Yet she is, really. Her presence is everywhere, as you will see when you go inside.’ Mr Bacon proposed locating the yet-to-be-built Olley Memorial Garden at MOAC next to an artist-in-residence
Baby film festival for BayFM To thank local community radio station BayFM for their ongoing support of the show Pregnancy, Birth and Beyond Radio, the presenters are hosting a fundraiser for the station. The Baby! International Film Festival will be screening all day on Saturday April 5 at the Byron Theatre, 11.30am–7.30pm. The event is a joint effort
with the show’s sponsor Maternity Coalition, Northern Rivers branch, a volunteerrun organisation that provides information to families about their birthing choices. Tickets are $13 ($10 for BayFM subscribers) and are available online at byroncentre.com.au or at the door. Organisers say all funds raised from the ticket sales will go to BayFM.
studio named in honour of one of Margaret Olley’s great friends, Lady Nancy Fairfax. Tweed mayor Barry Longland said the project had been highly anticipated by northern rivers residents and the Australian art world since work on the gallery began in June 2013.
$1m gift In 2011, the Margaret Olley Art Trust announced that the late Australian artist had bequeathed $1 million to establish a re-creation of her studio and elements of her home and wanted it built in the Tweed, where she spent time as a child. Former deputy prime minister Doug Anthony, whose gift of the land the gallery sits on made it all possible, told The Echo the opening on Sunday was the most ‘exhilarating feeling’ of his life, because ‘so many people have been involved’ in helping to achieve a gallery ‘with no equal anywhere else in Australia’. Margaret Olley’s nieces Sally Wilkinson, from Brun-
swick Heads, and Helen Rose Olley, from Toowoomba, agreed the recreation of the studio was ‘perfect’.
‘Second home’ Ms Wilkinson said the Paddington studio became her own ‘second home’ in the last ten years of the artist’s life after Margaret invited her to live there. ‘I’m happy to see it recreated for everyone else to experience the artistic side of her life which is more than just the paintings,’ she said. Students in the choir at Murwillumbah Public School, where Olley first went to school, performed several songs including the national anthem. Tweed Regional Gallery and the Margaret Olley Art Centre will be open to the public again from Wednesday March 19, 10am to 5pm. Q See Sharon Shostak’s

The Byron Shire Echo March 18, 2014 3
Do we want a new major development in West Byron? Do we want: • longer trafﬁc delays on Ewingsdale Rd on a daily basis? • upwards of 2800 extra people wanting services, local jobs, surf spots, parking and school places? • water contamination of Belongil Creek due to acidsulfate soils on the site? • signiﬁcant koala habitats threatened? • a development that is the opposite of the low key, sustainability-oriented values of this town? • a development that threatens the reasons people visit Byron and threatens the many jobs tourism supports?
Development can be good if it is an improvement There are responsible and sustainable development solutions for Byron Bay that we could be proud of and which are in keeping with the values of our community.
The West Byron proposal is an irresponsible development A proposal to rezone a 108 hectare site for development at West Byron along Ewingsdale Road is currently being considered by the NSW Department of Planning and Infrastructure. The decision on the future of the site was taken out of the hands of Byron Shire Council. Our Council has repeatedly rejected proposals for development at West Byron as the land is unsuitable for development because of inadequate infrastructure, traffic congestion, flooding problems, insufficient sewage capacity and potential severe environmental impacts. The present plan for development includes a large suburb with a mix of medium and low-density housing and commercial and light industrial sites. This is not the kind of low-key development that we understand the people of Byron want. It would be a suburb with a population the size of Mullumbimby.
came to Byron to avoid. • The rezoning would permit 1100+ houses to be built — adding at least 2800 more people to our population of 10,000. This signiﬁcantly exceeds the kind of measured growth that was outlined in the NSW Government’s 2007 Far North Coast Regional Strategy. • Trafﬁc congestion on Ewingsdale Road is already going to get a lot worse due to developments at Becton, Bayshore Village and the new hospital. West Byron would add even more cars, generate more congestion and increase pressure on parking in town and at our beaches that is already at capacity. • It is likely that trafﬁc would be so bad that it would have a negative impact on tourism — our largest employer. Our strongest marketing tool for tourism is our point of difference from many other overcooked coastal towns.
What are the likely impacts of the proposed development?
• Local businesses would also suffer if the trafﬁc causes customers to choose other places over Byron Bay to do business.
• The relaxed small town community feel we have fought hard to preserve over the years would be lost. We would have to contend with city-style problems that many of us
• Land clearing on the site would destroy core koala habitat that would likely see the demise of Byron’s already small koala colony. • There is a danger that toxic run-off,

a result of building work disturbing the acid-sulfate soils that cover more than 75% of the site, would poison Belongil Estuary and adjacent Cape Byron Marine Park; essential areas for ﬁsh and shorebird breeding. • More people would be looking for work in an area of already high unemployment.
The land rezoning should not proceed It is irresponsible to give the go-ahead for this development without having resolved the substantial problems associated with the site: • Trafﬁc — a comprehensive Trafﬁc Plan of Management must be in place for all of Byron Bay. • Acid-sulfate soils (ASS) — an ASS Plan of Management must be in place. The risk of contaminating Belongil Creek is too great. • Koalas — Byron’s koala population is already threatened as a result of urbanisation. The proponents of the development have no Koala Plan of Management in place.
What about affordable housing for locals? Developers cannot guarantee these houses would be ‘affordable’ — and affordable for whom? The sites at West Byron are to be sold in an open market and there is nothing to stop investors buying up the houses and charging the same inﬂated rents they charge all over Byron — or holiday letting them and excluding locals who need homes. That is what causes the affordable housing
shortage. The marketplace cannot make houses cheaper for people who are struggling for a place to live. Affordable housing needs to be addressed at a policy level by Council or the NSW Government. It is not a problem that the West Byron development would solve.
Return the decision-making to the community Local member Don Page is also the Minister for Local Government and the Minister for Northern NSW. We urge Mr Page to defend our region and our local government and act to stop this rezoning before it leads to this inappropriate development. The NSW Coalition government came to the last election promising to give communities a say in decisions that directly affect them. Bypassing the democratically elected Council and imposing a mega-suburb on our town breaks this pre-election promise. We really must have a say in a decision concerning a development that will have a substantial impact on our town. Byron Residents’ Group is not about saying ‘no’ to improvement. We invite the community to join us in promoting development that is locally based, measured and makes the fullest use of available resources. The kind of suburbanisation proposed for West Byron is out-dated and has been discredited. We would like to see possibilities for creative and innovative building that would maintain the unique character of Byron Bay.

Artists to celebrate Bundjalung culture On Friday March 21 Arts Northern Rivers will launch Bunarm Bologaman Wahl Bundjalung (Brothers coming together of the Bundjalung Nation), an exhibition of works by 12 significant Bundjalung artists who have a deep connection to the culture of the Bundjalung Nation and to each other as brothers, dedicated to protecting and caretaking culture for future generations. Guests will be welcomed to country by Arakwal and Bundjalung representatives with the exhibition opening to be officiated by Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan and Byron Shire Mayor Simon Richardson. The exhibition includes artwork from all areas of the Bundjalung Nations inspired by nuthung garra (ancestors), the higher spiritual source known as nuthung ngali and the butheram (creation times).
From left, Bundjalung artists Luke Close, Burri Jerome, Gilbert Laurie, Oral Roberts and Noel (Charlie) Caldwell.
The artists, who are all teachers and mentors in their culture and art, offer a unique perspective on their djugun (country) and all are dedicated to creating work
that inspires the Indigenous youth of the northern rivers to reconnect to their culture. The opening night is on Friday March 21 at Bangalow A&I Hall, beginning at
5.30pm. All works will be for sale with all proceeds going directly to the artists. The exhibition will run until March 30 inclusive. See opening times at https:// artsnorthernrivers.com.au.
EDO holds workshop on changes to Aboriginal heritage law EDO NSW will hold a free workshop to explain the proposed changes to the laws affecting Aboriginal cultural heritage in NSW and how the community can have its say. The community legal centre is preparing a submission to the NSW government and wants to accurately reflect the views of local communities by facilitating discussion on the reforms. The NSW government has released a draft model for a stand-alone Aboriginal Cultural Heritage law which would replace all Aboriginal cultural heritage provisions in the current National Parks and Wildlife Act. Proposed changes include establishing local Aboriginal cultural heritage committees across all NSW regions to negotiate outcomes with
developers; and redefining Aboriginal cultural heritage to what the traditional owners consider culturally significant, including landscapes. The workshop will be held at The Red Dove (upstairs) 80 Keen Street, Lismore, on Wednesday March 19, 11am– 1pm, and will be followed by lunch. For more information on Aboriginal cultural heritage visit EDO NSW’s website which has factsheets, past policy submissions to government and information on previous court cases to defend Aboriginal cultural heritage: www.edonsw.org. au/aboriginal_communities_policy. EDO NSW has also produced a booklet called Caring for Country: A Guide to Environmental Law for Abo-
riginal Communities in NSW to assist Aboriginal people to understand their legal rights and obligations under environmental and natural resource management law: www.edonsw.org.au/legal_
guides. EDO NSW also puts out a weekly bulletin www.edonsw.org.au/ebulletin with the latest updates on important environmental law news in NSW.
Kids’ clothes needed for PNG Local agent Mark Cochrane and his wife Alison are cruising to The Louisiades, a group of islands off the eastern tip of PNG.

Mark wants to place on record a huge thank you to Craig Watson Soul Pattinson Chemist and to Brunswick Heads Holistic Dental Surgery for their generous help. Mark and Al have lots of
clothing, fishing gear, etc, but are short on children’s clothes for 2- to 12-year-olds. If any locals can donate a little it would be appreciated. Remember it’s the tropics! Also, hooks, sinkers and fishing line are always of huge value to subsistence communities. You can call Mark on 0416 142 663 for info or drop off to Professionals Mullumbimby. Mark and Al depart April 2 so early donations by Wednesday/Thursday to allow for packing a small boat would be appreciated.

Local News Volunteers plant trees for koala habitat Volunteers helped to plant 650 trees to restore koala habitat at Tyagarah near the old low-level railway bridge on the weekend. The trees came from money raised by Brunswick Valley Landcare’s Forest Fairies at last November’s Mullum Music Festival. Planting was co-ordinated by Brunswick Valley Landcare and Byron Shire Council’s Koala Connection Project, which also covered additional costs for tree guards, stakes and site preparation. The site is an important part of the larger wildlife corridor Council is working with landholders to restore. The tree planting was carried out adjacent to the highway at the Tyagarah Creek underpass, which provides a location for koalas and other wildlife to pass under the highway. Lunchtime entertainment was provided by

and worked for the Colonial Sugar Refining Company (CSR). In 1952 a young school teacher arrived and they fell in love. By 1953 they were engaged but couldn’t get married straight away, having to get permission from the company, which basically meant waiting for ‘couples’ accommodation. The pair returned to Phyllis’s home turf in Sydney and were there just long enough to get married at the Presbyterian church Bankstown on March 5, 1954. They spent the next 20 years in Fiji and had two children, Linda and William. Though born in Fiji, Robert was considered an ex-pat, so when the atmosphere changed in the islands in 1970, the Keytes moved to Australia, settling in Harbord (Freshwater).
Both the Keyte children followed in their mum’s footsteps and became teachers and in 2003 Robert and Phyllis moved to Mullumbimby, where their daughter Linda taught at Mullum High. ‘Our daughter and family were here and we thought it was a pretty nice part of the world’, says Phyllis. ‘We have been pretty happy here.’
Phyllis says the best thing about being married for 60 years is being with your best friend. ‘There is a quote from Oscar Wilde that sums it up perfectly. “You don’t love someone for their looks, or their clothes, or their fancy car, but because they sing a song only you can hear”. Being best friends is the main thing.’

Jacqui Lute was a well known personality around the Byron Shire. Jacqui was a smiling face to greet many a patient in her work as a medical receptionist, most recently at North Coast Medical Centre and Brunswick Heads Medical Centre. Jacqui also worked at Ocean Shores Country Club for many years and lived in Ocean Shores for around 20 years. Sadly a day of celebration turned into one of tragedy for Jacqui’s family when she collapsed while dancing to one of her favourite bands, Oka, on Australia Day. Jacqui suffered from a severe brain aneurysm and sadly passed away on Monday January 27. Jacqui touched the heart of many people and a group of those near and dear, along with some local artists, are

who have died.’ The Brunswick Heads Hotel will put on a concert, featuring Oka, on Thursday April 24. The family friendly event will run from 6-10pm and tickets are $10, kids 16 and under free. ‘Even though this is a project in honour of Jacqui it is for all in the community,’ says Tahlia.

Lone stands for orangutans eventual extinction of the animal. Second to the oil is the use of the timber from forests that are cleared to make way for palm plantations, and another killer is the abduction of infants, actually physically torn from their beaten and broken mothers, to make pets for humans.
Story & photo Eve Jeffery
One woman has, for over 20 years, been dedicating her life to repairing the damage humans have wreaked upon orangutans. Lone DrĂ¸scher Nielsen is a world-famous conservationist and champion of orangutans. With the help of Dr Willie Smits of the Borneo Orangutan Survival (BOS), and with the financial backing of the Gibbon Foundation and BOS Indonesia, Lone founded the Nyaru Menteng Orangutan Reintroduction Project in 1998, based in Central Kalimantan, to deal with the swelling numbers of orphaned orangutans. She was able to build the facility under an agreement with the Indonesian Ministry of Forestry, and Nyaru Menteng officially opened its doors to the first dozen orangutans in 1999. Lone recently conducted a whirlwind tour, speaking to audiences in Brisbane, then Sydney and Melbourne via Knockrow. This is her first

A pact â€˜The good news is that Lone accepted my invitation to do a presentation at the Macadamia Castle as part of her â€œcapital cityâ€? tourâ€™, says Tony. â€˜Having never been to Australia before Lone thought that Knockrow was a capital like Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, and we are the winners.â€™ Lone says that speak-
ing tours are not her natural â€˜habitatâ€™ but she strives to talk to as many people as she can for the sake of her charges. â€˜I am nervous in front of two people or 200â€™, says Lone. â€˜The only reason I am here is that 20 years ago I made a pact with a group of orangutans to be a voice for them and today I am able to do that.â€™ Lone says that the biggest decimator of orangutan populations is the lust for palm oil. It is used in so many of our daily consumables and if the greed for this extract is left unchecked, we will see the
â€˜The main message is there are still a lot of people out there who donâ€™t really know what the situation is in Indonesia â€“ how bad it really is. The orangutan is not going to go extinct over the next decade or anything like that, but there are still a lot of very bad things happening and that needs to stop.â€™ The way you can help is to stop using palm oil products, stop buying timber products made from the forests and adopt a baby orangutan or donate to support the project.

Reader feedback Bisley had created the show in response to the reader feedback he had from his memoir, Stillways, a story ostensibly about his relationship with his father. â€˜It was a gut feeling from the reactions to my book.

Steve Bisley is seeking deadly sinners A few weeks ago, well-known Aussie actor and now local resident Steve Bisley put together a unique show that asked participants to write letters to their parents, and then read them in a public setting, complemented by a string quartet and afternoon tea. It was a project inspired by community and the desire to unravel the stories that intricately weave between us. It was an untried formula, so Steve was hedging his bets on the community response. â€˜I woke up that morningâ€™ [of the last show] thinking we will probably get two people and a dog!â€™ says Steve. As it turns out the afternoon attracted a full house with some people having to be turned away.

They have to write a story that is reflective of one of the sins. â€˜There is wonderful scope in that, and then we choose ten. The stories have to be yours.

Volatile politics stall federal reform
Volume 28 #40
March 18, 2014
Parks under threat It seems a lifetime ago now that NSW premier Bob Carr declared in the late nineties and early noughties hundreds of national parks across the state, in particular protecting the oldgrowth forests of the north-east on the heels of fervent protests by real conservationists. Since then the hard right of the Labor Party and the Macquarie Street mandarins of the LibNats seem more interested in the commercial value of national parks, which in any case occupy less than eight per cent of our wide brown land. According to the National Parks Association of NSW (www. npansw.org.au), a recent NSW upper house inquiry into local tourism could unintentionally destroy the major attraction of NSW national parks by recommending opening them up to commercial accommodation and destructive activities such as fossicking. It seems those shining the bum-ends of their trousers and skirts on parliament benches have forgotten that nature is its own reward and doesn’t need ‘value-adding’. Even if parks are underwater they are still under threat. The O’Farrell government last year decided to allow fishing from the shore in the protected sanctuary zones of NSW marine parks and is considering making that permanent. According to Save Our Marine Life, in Byron Bay’s case ‘this would significantly undermine the health of local marine life, thereby risking the region’s branding as an iconic coastal holiday destination’. Echo Publications has endorsed a call to retain existing sanctuaries and invites other local businesses to join in by going to www.saveourmarinelife.org.au/byron. There are plenty of other places to fish in Byron Shire, including in habitat protection zones next to the sanctuary zones. Michael McDonald

he last domino has proved surprisingly stubborn. The crow eaters, it appears, have succumbed to inertia – they want change, well, sort of, but perhaps not quite yet. We won’t really know for a few days. For what it’s worth, I think Jay Weatherill will probably hang on, either in his own right – just – or with the help of at least one of the two independents. Of course late counting and postal and pre-poll votes could yet push Steven Marshall over the line; as of Sunday night, there were still nearly a third of the votes still to tally. But given the trend to date, it looks pretty unlikely. The Libs got a swing of about 1.5 per cent, giving them an easy win in the two party preferred, about 52.5 to 47.5. But almost all their increases came in their own safe seats. Incredibly, according to the ABC, there was actually a swing to Labor in 20 of the state’s 47 electorates. In other words, there was no concerted mood for electing a new team; even after 12 years of frequently unpopular Labor government, the It’s Time factor failed to kick in. For this reason alone, it is unlikely that Marshall will finish the job of painting the map of Australia blue. Clearly, his campaign failed to connect, especially in the key marginal seats in which Labor concentrated its money and manpower. There is nothing to indicate that late counting will reverse this trend. But all that said, it remains a desperately close result, meaning that whoever becomes premier is unlikely to take the bold and unpopular decisions need to haul the rust-bucket South Australian economy out of the doldrums. And it also means that if Tony Abbott ever had any seri-
ous intention to use an unusual conjunction of state and federal governments to make major inroads into the moribund federal system, he will almost certainly have to abandon them. In practice, he may be just as glad. The path towards what has optimistically been referred to as ‘the new federalism’ is strewn with the corpses of prime ministers far more dedicated to the cause than our present pragmatic leader. Abbott, like just about all our previous prime ministers, acknowledges that the system is in serious need not just of a major servicing but

by Mungo MacCallum of a complete overhaul. In his 2009 manifesto Battlelines he described it as dysfunctional. But just what he wants to do about it remains unclear. At one stage he appeared to be proposing the traditional conservative remedy of devolution – reversing the centurylong trend of the commonwealth accumulating power at the expense of the states and giving them more responsibility in fields such as education and health. Yet only a couple of years earlier as John Howard’s health minister he had been canvassing the idea of a full commonwealth takeover of the hospital system. His plans for education involve shutting the states out altogether and giving control of the schools to local boards, but with the commonwealth maintaining its right to interfere in and if necessary rewrite the schools curriculum.

the next Newspoll that it can be, and has been, comfortably ignored for the moment. And this, of course, is where Abbott’s opportunity to exploit the conservative coalition gets well and truly lost, because the map is not going to get any bluer; indeed, from here on the only way it can go is red. Within 12 months both Victoria and Western Australia will go to the polls, and in neither case can the incumbent Liberals feel confident about the outcome. Not that Dennis Napthine and Colin Barnett have shown themselves to be all that eager to cooperate with Canberra anyway, whoever is in power. And at times Barry O’Farrell in New South Wales has been positively unhelpful to Abbott’s cause, while being among the first premiers to sign up to Julia Gillard’s Gonski package. Being in the same party – even in the same state branch – is no guar-
antee of solidarity when votes are on the line. As Paul Keating pointed out, the premiers just want to get at the money and they’re not all that particular where it comes from, as long as there’s plenty of it and it comes without too many strings attached. The problem with serious reform is that it does not necessarily involve immediate transfers of buckets of cash, and if it does, there is likely to be a price demanded, a price which premiers beset by problems of their own will be unwilling to pay. Just ask Kevin Rudd – in 2007 he came to power with wall-to-wall Labor premiers across the country and immediately announced his own grandiose plans for a new federation. In practice he was unable to get even his initial health reforms into play before bits of the map started to go blue again, and then the GFC took over, giving him a welcome excuse to abandon federal repair work while he fixed the commonwealth. Abbott will no doubt claim a similar need to repair the budget, end the waste and pay the debt, etc, if his own attempts at rejigging the system look like going off the rails. But at least he will be able to rely on Tasmania. Michael Hodgman, having ended up in full control of the terminally mendicant island state, will be totally dependent on commonwealth largesse. Whatever happens to the mainland, Abbott will always have one safe haven – at least while he retains the keys to the treasury. Whoever thought that little Tassie would end up as the one piece of firm political ground left to our always changeable prime minister? Q See Mungo’s video at

cal fiscal imbalance – the fact that while the states do most of the spending they rely on the commonwealth to collect the revenue and dole it out to them – he has little to say: there is to be a review of the tax system, along with just about everything else, but the GST, the states’ only serious source of income, is off the table at least for this term of government. As the former Treasury head Ken Henry has pointed out, it will have to be considered, and probably increased, in the foreseeable future. But that is so far beyond

Letters Trees safe for now
In regard to Mr McDermid’s letter of concern over trees north of Broken Head Hall (Echo, March 11), we’d like to assure the community that they have not been earmarked for removal. Council has it on this year’s capital works program to upgrade a 600m stretch of road on Broken Head Road from Midgen Flat Road to the north. This is being undertaken due to concerns on the failing surface on a road that is heavily used. As part of the required geotechnical assessment on the road, the trees need to be considered. As such, staff have marked trees in the section to enable an environmental assessment to be undertaken for various options. When the assessment is completed it will include work details, timing and if any tree removal is recommended. No works have been approved for the site and there is a standing Council resolution that any proposed works, which will include the assessment report, will be reported to Council for consideration. We will keep the community informed when the report is before Council. Phil Holloway Director, Infrastructure Services Byron Shire Council
Rail trail objectives
Louise Doran is suspicious of the motives of rail trail supporters (Letters, March 11). Their motives and aims are very clear: protect the disused rail corridor from planning changes and ensure this land stays in public hands; create a safe passage for bike riders, walkers, mothers with prams and elderly folk on mobility
A crisis of uncertainty There is a crisis of uncertainty in the charity and notfor-profit sector in Australia. It is being instigated by the Abbott federal government. This government should be publicly shamed for the gross mismanagement of how they are dealing with the funding supplied to the groups who support the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in our community. Hundreds of millions of dollars of government programs and services are under review in areas such as health, welfare, child support, youth, housing, employment and volunteering. Most organisations delivering these services have no idea what funds, if any, will be available after June this year. This government is operating with a total lack of
community consultation and transparency around how and what decisions are being made. Charities are reporting that staff are now looking for employment elsewhere as the uncertainty grows. What choice do they have? The Community Council for Australia (the not-forprofit peak body) has called on the federal government to end this crisis of uncertainty. This sector employs over one million Australians and turns over close to $100 billion. Such uncertainty is not good governance. It is shameful and disrespectful to those who assist the most needy. Even the car industry is giving its workers five years’ notice! We should demand better from our federal government. They are responsible for en-
suring adequate funding to organisations so that we have a viable social net to support the most needy and vulnerable. Without such a social net Australia will become a more violent and scary place as those denied support scramble to survive. If funds do dry up at the end of June this will mean many community services in the Byron Shire will struggle to survive and will be faced with the decision to close their doors. The charity queues will not disappear; they will grow longer. Be ready to put your hands into your pockets because if the federal government turns its back on the poor and needy someone is going to have to pay the price. Cr Paul Spooner Byron Bay
vehicles; and create a tourism product of world recognition that can attract visitors who care about the environment and want to explore our region. This is not just for the economic stimulus that the villages along the corridor will gain from the rail trail. It is also about jobs, not only in cafes, accommodation and tourism operations, but in food production, Indigenous tourism, museums and interpretive centres, and so much more. Supporters of the rail trail are not anti-train. They are happy to work with any group that can put forward a proposal that keeps the corridor in public ownership. The government closed the rail line because very few people were using it – the line did not meet people’s transport
needs. The rail trail ensures the corridor and rail formation are protected for any future train services. This is a huge opportunity – we need to get behind the rail trail: www.northernriversrailtrail. org.au. Geoff Meers Suffolk Park

Trafficking in bypasses: a grand local tradition QOliver Dunne’s bypass ramble (Echo, March 11) is correct on some points but dead wrong on others. A few facts may help. The 1993 EIS was abandoned and superseded by one published in April 2001. In March 2002 Council resolved
that this concept be ‘split’ or ‘staged’ to first allow construction of the ‘mini-bypass’ (which the late Tony Narracott would playfully refer to as the ‘Staples bypass’). This idea was suggested to me by John Weiley in 1998; traffic origin/destination studies (see

The Butler Street proposal would have virtually no observable effect on queuing at peak times in Shirley Street, nor relieve pressure on the crucial Lawson/Jonson Street roundabout. Funding, rather than being ‘well underway’ is virtually non-existent (unless one relies on politicians’ promises). If convincing Council to pursue a promising alternative to a prohibitively expensive, controversial project is ‘sabotage’, then I stand guilty. At least, Oliver, you have refrained from the savage personal invective others have directed at me over this issue, and you’re right that Council would be unwise to rely on ageing documentation. The land bought by the Dunne Council for road access in the late 80s next to Mitre 10 has been encumbered with easements and parking agreements which effectively render it useless for road access.

velopment and the Butler Street bypass as most traffic generated from West Byron will, again, want to access the town centre. Which begs the question: why has a major bypass received such support? I suggest it’s really about land development along a new access. There would presumably be a few big winners. Old adage – follow the money. Richard Staples Talofa The comments by Oliver Dunne in last week’s Echo rightly point out that the Butler Street extension bypass has a limited shelf life, and that the roundabout at Jonson and Lawson was at its carrying capacity many years ago. The assumption of the original bypass in 1989 was that access to the town centre would be as it is now, using the railway crossing at Lawson Street. The Butler Street bypass would have a much longer life if this crossing was closed and entry to town was via a new crossing at Browning Street. Converting the railway corridor for use as a linear car

With the recent revelation that fracking by Santos at the Pilliga mine site has contaminated the aquifer and that fracking at Bentley could end up contaminating the Rocky Creek Dam, our local water source, this affects us all. For up-to-date details go to Facebook: Rosella-Metgasco Gasfield at Bentley, Gasfield Free Byron Shire or Lock The Gate Alliance. Vivien Royston New Brighton Q In June 2011 a CSG holding pond leaked in the Pilliga Scrub. It took over two years until the government fined Santos a paltry sum and acknowledged fracking was responsible for polluting an aquifer with uranium, arsenic and other toxic chemicals. Metgasco’s website clearly shows they have an agenda to convert large areas of the northern rivers into a gas field. For this to be economically viable, Metgasco will be fracking us senseless. They also have been fined for environmental breaches. How can we have any confidence in the gas industry?

park as part of a comprehensive solution would provide an incentive for much of the 80 per cent of traffic accessing the town centre to park before crossing the railway line. Approximately 1,000 cars could be parked on this land. The reduction in car movements in the CBD would then allow the bikes and pedestrians Oliver discussed. Also in last week’s Echo, Simon Richardson said that an act of parliament would be required to change the status of the railway land. This land is zoned in Byron LEP for ‘transport uses’. Last year’s state government report on the viability of the rail corridor indicated this line is too expensive to run, so if it isn’t rail transport uses, then why not car transport uses? Exactly who is pushing for the rail service to be reopened? This sounds like more of the same Greens sabotage that Oliver Dunne mentioned. Frank Stewart Byron Bay Q I never believed Don Page would try to restore rail services and didn’t vote for him
We sure can’t rely on the government regulators. For this reason we all must stand together now to stop Metgasco in their tracks and prevent any further development of the Bentley gas well, near Lismore. The time is now to support www.gasfieldfreebyronshire.org and Lock The Gate to protect our land, our water, our climate and our future. Dave Rawlins Mullumbimby Creek
so his backflip on trains didn’t hurt me much. However I feel betrayed by Simon Richardson’s bypass backflip. Before the election Simon seemed to understand that more cars wouldn’t solve Byron’s traffic woes, that the queues on Byron’s access roads are coming to Byron not seeking to bypass it, that in lieu of sane strategy to limit development and population traffic congestion is a vital last line of defence, that destroying our market precinct and the residential amenity of Butler Street with traffic is the antithesis of a ‘solution’ to the traffic problem, and that moving the Ewingsdale Road traffic jam into town is very silly – so what went wrong in Simon’s mind? If Don could be trusted (not to let a sod be turned at West Byron until the bypass is a goer) maybe the outbreak of housing disease at West Byron could be held in remission by encouraging Simon to recover his senses and flip back to his original position on the bypass.

Letters/Pin This Up continued from page 14 scientists recently making a joint statement confirming that allowing recreational fishing in sanctuary zones will severely undermine NSW’s marine park network. Last weekend, 200 community members gathered at Main Beach, Byron Bay, to express their support for our marine sanctuaries. It’s time the local member for Ballina Don Page stood with the community and called on his NSW government colleagues to abandon this controversial plan before it is approved.

Is this The Esplanade at Belongil?
In response to a letter last week about ‘The Esplanade’ at Belongil, a reader submitted this image from the 1978 Public Works Department Byron Bay to Hastings Point Erosion Study, available at the library, showing a small bus on a track in front of houses at Belongil. The reader also notes that a map she observed of the original subdivision at Belongil ‘clearly showed The Esplanade and land beyond this on the beach side’.
gency action now for those most affected, those who are sleeping rough and not looking forward to winter at all. And then there are those who can no longer pay the rent, who are overcrowded, sleeping in vehicles, etc. All strategies and the consultants recommended new caravan parks inland with significant permanent sites, a place for safe vehicle sleeping, a tent, yurt, tipi, mobile home or van. That would be a huge relief to a lot of people. Okay, that does start to impact those who are receiving grossly inflated rents at the bottom end of the market. But hey! there are easier and more satisfying investments than screwing poor people. Jed Stuart Koonyum Range

The Echo reported Mayor Richardson’s reaction to the Ocean Shores Community Association’s legal objection to council’s proposed sale of the Roundhouse site. He requested OSCA ‘to act in the “community interest and withdraw” the challenge’.

Over 25 years ago the council of the day wanted the site to be preserved as a community amenity. The Land and Environment Court subsequently ordered the council to acquire it under the existing zoning of 5A Special Uses (Community Purposes). Later councils have had

Old becomes new at Vast Interior
It’s time to plant your cool season crops, including brassicas like kale, broccoli, cauliˊower, brussels sprouts, and cabbages. They all enjoy similar conditions – a sunny position, soil rich in organic matter, and adequate watering. Good companion plants for kale and other members of the cabbage family are dill, bush beans, celery, onions, spinach, marigold, nasturtium and strongly scented herbs such as peppermint and oregano. Plant some white alyssum, too, to help deter the white cabbage moth which will lay eggs and produce zillions of voracious caterpillars if you’re not careful! 140 Bangalow Rd, Byron Bay. 6685 6874. www.edenatbyron.com.au.
Over the past few years Vast has been stockpiling hundreds of old doors from demolished houses throughout India. These doors are often brightly coloured with several different layers of paint that have accumulated over the decades. The doors are disassembled, de-nailed, and cleaned, leaving the recycled timber ready for manufacturing. These old planks are then aesthetically arranged by hand into a unique design that blends all of the original colours. New mango wood is then added to form the structural sub-frame, and then the product is hand-sanded, and hand-lacquered with nine coats of highquality German lacquer. It is a painstaking process, but the end Mustiˉes the means – a one-off piece of furniture, with its own inherent characteristics, that has been handcrafted from new and recycled timbers. The Vast Interior Ballina has these beautiful ranges in stock for you to view, with more arriving mid to late March. 15 Sheather Street Ballina. 6686 8802. vastinterior.com.au.

CD GIVEAWAY! We have one of Parissa Bouas' beautiful CDs to giveaway this week – The Full Force of the Wind If you would like to receive this giveaway and a free subscription to Echonetdaily, email your name, phone number and postcode to firstname.lastname@example.org with subject header 'Wild is the Wind'.
and best known as one half of The Hottentots, The Full Force of the Wind is the debut album that sees Parissa take those glorious floating steps as a solo artist. It’s Billie Holiday meets Tom Waits and more. I love the feel and the styling of the album, I could have been in Paris, or drifting on a sailing boat in Cuba… were you conscious of setting such a definite mood with The Full Force of the Wind? Not really. I knew that I had a set of songs that required a different sound than what I’d been getting with The Hottentots and when I met Michiel Hollanders and Marc Constandse I knew immediately that the way they played would really suit the songs I had. The songs kind of revealed themselves as we put the production together. Tell me a little about your working relationship with your life partner Carl Cleves? How do the two of you compliment each other? I think we do really compliment each other. He inspires me with his ability to focus, and his avid interest in poetry, songwriters, storytellers, literature and the arts in general. As The Hottentots I believe we found a good balance between the light and happy songs and the longer, darker themed tunes. Carl likes to work on his own, but I often steal his chords, when I hear them waft into my room and add my own melody and words to them. What’s your songwriting process? Are songs fully formed in your head, or do they emerge slower than that? Often I have the songwriting feeling deep inside my belly. I will then sit down at the piano, or guitar if I’m touring, and doodle around or pick up a song book and play some chord changes to a song I don’t know. I’ll try to find a melody, then discover what the song is about. Alternatively something will happen to a friend that will move me and I’ll just write words first, then search for a previous doodle to add them to. I record everything. Today I was cycling along and started singing, which I immediately recorded. Little bits and pieces of songs are everywhere and over time they may become a song. Yes occasionally they come out fully formed in one go, when I have the time… that can be hours or days. The Full Force of the Wind is one of those. This is such a romantic album, is that a reflection of you? Are you a true romantic? Is it? It’s a break up album for a friend of mine. I guess it evokes a romantic time. A lot of people think it’s cinematic, I love that idea. Yes, I’m a hopeless romantic! You have such a natural voice, you don’t ‘oversing’, it feels so effortless. How long did it take you to establish your very authentic and individual style? Who are the singers who have influenced you? I’ve been singing since I was a young child, and I’ve recorded six albums with The Hottentots, but I’m really enjoying the discovery of my voice on this album. They say age informs a singer. Perhaps you lose some technical ability but you gain emotional experience with which to really sing. For this album I listened a lot to Carla Bruni, Billie Holiday, Madeleine Peyroux, Tom Waits, Norah Jones and Melody Gardot. Can you tell me about the other players on the album and where you recorded? I started recording here with Peter Haddock at Muse Agency. Then I met the Dutch guys. The album is co-produced by myself and Michiel Hollanders. He’s an incredible musician and instrument builder. He plays all kinds of guitars, the saw, velofoon, fietsband bass, weird stringed instruments and sand paper. Marc Constandse plays percussion and bandoneon. I recorded with them in Holland, twice, the rest was sent using Dropbox, with lots of skype sessions to discuss it all. I did some guides

locally with Waz Porter and then while I was touring in Victoria, I recorded at Pughouse Studios with Australia’s pre-eminent Brazilian specialist Doug De Vries on 10-string guitar and cavaquinho and the fabulous JoJo Smith sang backing vocals. Carl Cleves was also there singing and supporting. Who will be playing with you on the night? The Australian jazz legend George Washingmachine will be his humorous self as he sings and plays his violin.

A LITTLE PROVINCE Originally moulded from acoustic folk rock, then crafted into the funnest chunk of progressive rock you’ve heard, The Little Province have a sound that starts big and seemingly gets bigger. The rhythms are designed for dancing and testing your maths skills with violin soaring amid the fabric of heavily effected guitar, one angelic singing drummer and a very, very energetic live show. These four Byron Bay lads are now working on their third recording and are very excited about how it sounds. Catch them at the Beach Hotel in Byron on Thursday from 9pm. ELLIOTT ANTICS The Elliotts are turning heads in the music industry with their intriguing stage antics and catchy tunes. They will be heading to Japan and returning to Singapore later this year where it all began! Catch them at the Byron Brewery on Saturday. MIND THE GAPPY The Grandson of Reggae, Gappy Ranks comes to the Byron Brewery this Friday joined by a mega line up of dub and reggae dynamos. Gappy performed to over 600 people last year at the Hotel Brunswick and he’s only doing three gigs in Australia as part of his tour, Sydney, Melbourne and Byron!

IS THAT A WALLET IN YOUR POCKET? There is nothing more unattractive than a tight arse. And Iâ€™m not talking about someone with buns of steel, because frankly that is bloody attractive. Iâ€™m talking about people with moths in the wallet. Penny pinchers, iron-fisted ungenerous cheapskates, skinflints, tightwads, stingy bastards, those penurious scrooges who are as tight as a fishâ€™s arse. It is a singularly repulsive trait. I have always believed that a personâ€™s relationship with money is akin to their relationship with spirit. I have never trusted coin counters. And before you start protesting that itâ€™s an economic issue, I donâ€™t think it is. Itâ€™s been proven time and time again that the poorer the person, the more generous they are with what little they have. It is one of the most surprising and confounding facts of charity that the people who can least afford to give are the ones who donate the greatest percentage of their income. It always tends to be people who have money, and a lot of it, who are the least willing to part with it. I once shared a house with a bloke who kept his toilet paper in his room because he thought other people used too much. It was a great joy to me when we had a small party and one of the guests panicked when he couldnâ€™t locate loo paper and wiped his arse on tightwadâ€™s towel. (Alright, I admit it. It was me.) Sharehousing is the perfect place to spot arseholes. The ones that keep an audit of how many times
theyâ€™ve turned the light on or used the shower, then work out exactly how many units of power they have personally consumed. Frankly in my opinion the fact that theyâ€™re consuming oxygen should be reason enough to charge them double. These people are a social liability. I was out to dinner with one the other night. It was my husbandâ€™s birthday and we were having dinner with a few of his friends. Some dear friends had a couple who were travelling with them and we agreed it was no problem for them to join us, even though we didnâ€™t know them. At the end of the night when the bill was split, it was averaged out to $65 a head. Most of us thought it was pretty reasonable. Except for Scrooge. He was clearly upset and approached my friend whoâ€™d been lumbered with the unfortunate task of collecting the cash complaining â€˜We wouldnâ€™t have spent more than $60 between the two of us!â€™ We acknowledged that he and his wife hadnâ€™t partaken in the wine (perhaps if they had he would have been less uptight) and said just throw in $100. Dame Nellie Melba blinks at the light as he draws her out of his pocket. You can tell itâ€™s been a while. Mr Tightwad then summons his wife into the toilets for a furious conference about being asked to pay more money than youâ€™ve consumed at the birthday dinner of a man youâ€™ve never met. By the way, he had spent a good part of the dinner detailing the various properties he owned overseas to nearby guests. I could see he was getting cranky, and felt some compassion for his wife who was looking uncomfortable. I had the feeling sheâ€™d attended many of these loo-based fiscal summits. So I threw in another $20 in his direction. This meant while other guests had contributed between $130â€“$150 per couple, Mr Property Magnate had paid a mere $80 for himself and his partner. That seemed fair enough. But
no, he came at my friend for a third time; this time he was aggressive and obnoxious. I would think that was rather poor behaviour in anyoneâ€™s books, especially when your attendance was at the bequest of the friends of the birthday boy. Heck, at most birthday dinners, people throw in extra to cover the cost of the birthday boysâ€™ dinner. No, the cheapskate wanted more. So he starts with â€˜I just have to tell you that I am not happy aboutâ€Śâ€™ Fuck off. You donâ€™t have to tell anyone. Weâ€™re not interested. My friend, who could ill afford it, gives him another $20. Sheâ€™s now paid something like $170. He backs off, still annoyed and bids farewell. He didnâ€™t even say thank you. That guy was such a tightwad I reckon heâ€™d have a burglar alarm on his trash can. You ask to go to the toilet at his place and heâ€™ll say â€˜Fourth bottle on the leftâ€™. Yes, I bet like most wealthy penny pinchers heâ€™d say that money means nothing to him. You ask him for money, and you get nothing. Let me finish with a quote from psychologist Paul Piff who published research that correlated wealth with an increase in unethical behaviour: â€™While having money doesnâ€™t necessarily make anybody anything, the rich are way more likely to prioritise their own selfinterests above the interests of other people. They are more likely to exhibit characteristics that we would stereotypically associate with, say, assholes.' Need I say more?

epithet of matinee idol. Handsome in a ‘golden years of Hollywood’ way and equally adept at romantic comedy as drama (a crossover too challenging for most), he can hold a movie together through his mere participation in it. Matt Damon, more earthy and earnest than glamorous, has a similarly weighty screen presence. It is just as well for this high-minded but curiously under-achieving film that both men are involved, for without them its lack of drive, of any mounting tension might have proved terminal. As director and co-writer (he and Grant Heslov’s script feels patchy, under-worked), Clooney has attempted what many

would baulk at – a discourse on high art and its essential, timeless value to society in a vehicle designed for a mainstream, mass audience that might otherwise not give two figs for Jan van Eyck’s magnificent Ghent Altarpiece. It is a terrific story – while trashing Europe, the Nazis were looting the great paintings and statuary of the countries they overran with the idea of housing them in Hitler’s planned Fuhrer Museum. An elite squad of citizen soldiers under the command of Frank Stokes (Clooney) was sent to Europe after the D-Day invasion to find and recover as many of the works that they could. The sets, costumes and cinematography are first rate (there’s a beautiful
nocturnal shot of a bi-plane flying over Paris) but there are too many disconnected scenes that fail to merge into a compelling whole. The temperature of Damon’s romance with the French secretary (Cate Blanchett) never rises above tepid, the jousting buddy gags between John Goodman and Bob Ballaban fall flat and Bill Murray, apart from having a tooth hilariously extracted, is completely out of place – I wanted more of the charismatic Jean Dujardin. Poignant in parts, but generally flat, Clooney is to be applauded at least for challenging the prevailing mindset that knows the price of everything but the value of nothing. ~ John Campbell
NEED FOR SPEED We all have our favourite types of movies, as well as those we dislike. For mine, the screaming engines and screeching tyres of the car flick are infinitely more tiresome than the gunfire and explosions of the action adventure. But if you exercise a modicum of open-mindedness, you can be persuaded to overcome your prejudice, as I was by Ron Howard’s outstanding ‘Rush’. Unfortunately, this never breaks free of the formulaic and, in what threatens to be a neverending series, it’s also the offshoot of a popular video game franchise, about which I know zilch. Also, in a weird way, existing in a parallel universe, it fills the same slot for testosterone pumped young blokes who are drawn to mindless tooling around in soupedup autos that the equally vacuous ‘Vampire Academy’ does for chicks. If you’re not a member of one of these groups, there is not much to say for either movie, other than they are meticulously cliched and long enough to
keep the kids out of trouble for a couple of hours. Tobey (Aaron Paul from ‘Breaking Bad’) is just out of the slammer – he was framed, of course, and he’s going to get even. It takes no time at all to identify who the bad guy is (he’s the one dressed in black throughout) and who is the Girl he’ll get when he wins the challenge. It’s not in the same league as ‘Fast and Furious’, notwithstanding its non-stop rev-head revelry – the same polish is not quite there and, most obvious, the guys just don’t have the screen-filling, gargantuan egos of Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne ‘the Rock’ Johnson. What is impressive is that it appears to have been accomplished without the now standard daubs of CGI, ie, all the stunts look real and much of the driving is done by Paul himself. Which is hardly a reason to dash out and see it, but, compared to its more flash seniors, it has a backyard enthusiasm and gear crunching earnestness that makes it bearable – almost. ~ John Campbell

like you are missing out. The key is to plan ahead, identify healthy choices and learn which restaurants offer low-fat, healthy food. You need to be creative in your choices and take the opportunity to spoil yourself if your budget allows. Here are some tips to eating out that may help.
Fins Salt Village, Kingscliff 6674 4833 email@example.com Dinner 7 days Lunch Fri, Sat & Sun
• If you’re eating out in a group order one or two main courses fewer than the number of people dining and share.
The team behind Fins have just launched their new POP UP restaurant IZAKAYA. Izakaya serves Japanese Street Food, designed share style. Menu priced from $7–$22. Extensive Sake, Japanese cocktails and wines to choose from. Located beside Fins. Organic Botero coffee served with organic Barambah milk • Artisan coffee merchants, take home whole beans or freshly ground • Extended selection of daily baked savoury & sweet treats • Private licensed area for business meetings & group functions Special event dinners or La Table can come to your table! Reviewed & recommended in SMH Good Food Guide since 2009
NOW OPEN Mullumbimby Bowling Club restaurant
The ‘Yum Yum Tree’ was a traditional meeting place for the first Australians of our area. A place to take sustenance, and catch up with old and new friends. Come notice the extra flair, enthusiasm and personal touch of the Yum Yum Tree Café team, a collection of professional, down to earth people, enjoying their day serving you the tastiest meals and drinks. www.yumyumtreecafe.com.au

• Request a doggie bag at the beginning of the meal and immediately set aside a portion to take home. HEALTHY CHOICES YOU CAN’T GO WRONG WITH: • Oysters natural with a squeeze of lemon (a dozen of course) • Barbecue octopus salad, smoked salmon • Grilled lobster, Balmain bug, fresh seafood platter (no chips or batter) • Prawn and avocado salad • Chicken Caesar salad (ask to leave the croutons out and dressing on the side) • Soup of the day (no bread) • Stir-fried vegetables and meat, chicken or fish • Fish of the day – so long as it’s not deep fried
• Make an attitude adjustment – eating out doesn’t have to mean blowing your diet. Have the belief that dining out can be healthy and enjoyable at the same time.
• Roast lamb, beef, pork, chicken or quail
Naturopath Susan Garrad is the Director of Women’s Health, Naturally Bangalow.
• Don’t be afraid to make special requests; most restaurants are happy to help. Here are some examples:
• Any meat, fish, poultry dish that is panfried, baked or grilled. Bon appétit!
• Order salad dressing, sauces and butter on the side to control the amount you eat. • Ask for a side salad with French dressing or steamed vegetables to accompany your meal. • Request that foods be baked, steamed or poached instead of fried. • Ask to substitute a baked potato for chips. • Tell the waiter ahead of time not to bring the dessert menu at the end of the meal, or have a fruit platter for dessert. • Don’t eat all your meal if you’re full – ask the waiter to bring you a doggy bag and take it home to enjoy the next day. • Don’t have the bread roll or garlic bread.

Byron Shire Council’s sustainability officer Kim Mallee and First Sun Holiday Park manager Ian Heiniger showing off the new solar collectors.
Up to 10,000 litres of hot water per day are being heated free from the sun at Byron Shire Council’s First Sun Holiday Park. A commercial solar hot water system was installed just before Christmas on the two main amenities blocks which also service the shared kitchen and laundry. Initial reports on the system have shown they provided more than enough hot water for visitors during the peak holiday season. Council’s sustainability officer Kim Mallee said the solar hot water system represents an offset of 12.5 tonnes of equivalent CO2 compared to heating the same volume of water with a gas hot water system. ‘The system can provide up to 93 per cent of hot water, depending on the time of year during summer and winter, which also provides significant energy cost savings to the holiday park,’ she said. Five Council sites were assessed at the end of last year as part of an energy efficiency improvement plan. The assessment included hot water
volume usage and status of existing equipment. First Sun Holiday Park was chosen due to it having nine out of 15 heat pumps failing and the high visitation rates of the popular caravan park. The project was part-funded by Byron Shire Council with assistance from the federal government’s Local Government Energy Efficiency Program. Local solar hot water businesses and tradespeople were used for the purchase and installation of the systems. ‘This installation joins the other 204 solar hot water systems installed in the Byron Shire by the community in 2013 and shows now, more than ever, people are choosing renewable energy options,’ Ms Mallee said. Over the past five years, Byron Shire Council has installed solar hot water systems at Ocean Shores Community Centre, Brunswick Valley Community Centre, Suffolk Park Community Centre, Mullumbimby Neighbourhood Centre and the Council Works Depot.

Mullumbimby High School Ex-Students Association has lived up to its aim to support special projects, with recent donations to two school programs, one for boys and one for girls. President of the Association, Neville Marks said these programs had struck a chord and there was unanimous agreement to support them financially. The Chrysalis program for vulnerable young women who have experienced high levels of adversity in their lives including domestic violence, abuse of various kinds, neglect, poverty, family conflict, aims to break negative cycles to allow the girls to re-engage with school, their family, peers and the wider community. Contemporary counselling techniques are used, alongside group activities, yoga, and participation in community and school events. Co-ordinator of the program at Mullumbimby High, Natalie Grant, said the $250
donation was greatly appreciated as the program is a valued and important opportunity for girls at the school. The LANDE program – Literacy and Numeracy Direction Employment – is for boys in Years 9 and 10 having difficulty at school. Providing a vocational base for study of English and mathematics, together with work placement, the aim is to prepare boys for the workforce through to Year 12. Commenting on the support, Mr Marks said ‘We are delighted students with particular needs will get the help they need.’

Byron Rams into ANZAC semis
All aboard for WOW
Story & photo Greg Meek
The Park Hotel Byron Bay Rams cemented their place in this year’s Anzac Cup Semi finals with a decisive 7-1 win over Goonellabah at Ewingsdale on Sunday. The Rams totally dominated the Hornets and, with a howling tailwind, put way 5 goals before the halftime break. The wind eased a little for the second half and, despite letting quite a few opportunities go begging, Byron managed to put two more into the net before the final whistle. James Tomlinson once again wreaked havoc among the opposition defence, taking two goals for himself in the process.

Kazuhiro Tsukamoto in full flight during Sunday’s clash against Goonellabah.
Connor Cannon repeated his efforts of last week with another two, and a goal apiece for Dakota DixonKing, Sam McIntyre and Mi-
chael Kelly sealed the Hornets fate. The Byron back four are looking strong and settling in as a very cohesive unit.
Outstanding work from Sam McIntyre and James Tomlinson, Herick Schuenemann and Kazuhiro Tsukamoto for a comfortable win.

NRAS ‘vital in increasing affordable housing stock’ Responding to media reports alleging abuses of the National Rental Affordability Scheme, leading housing organisations and peak bodies have expressed strong support for the role of NRAS in starting to address Australia’s housing affordability crisis.
affordable end of the market, and we must maintain efforts to increase supply, including via the NRAS,’ said Adam Farrar, chair of National Shelter. ‘NRAS plays a vital role in attracting private finance to increase the stock of affordable ‘Australia has a chronic housing housing by offering an incentive supply crisis, especially at the to investors. ‘It also benefits low and moderate income households, many of whom are not eligible for other housing assistance but who are priced out of the private rental market. ‘A sustained commitment to NRAS is consistent with the federal government’s stated commitment to an infrastructure agenda, providing The group has instead urged the federal government to tackle the tax arrangements that are the real problem, inflating housing prices and shutting out people on modest incomes from the housing market.
as it does an efficient vehicle for private financing of infrastructure and cost-effective affordable housing programs.’ In the five years to June 30, 2013, NRAS has delivered 14,575 dwellings with 23,884 dwellings in progress. The executive director of the Community Housing Federation of Australia, Carol Croce, said, ‘NRAS is doing what it was intended to do: promoting significant investment where it’s needed at the affordable end of the rental market. ‘Many builders and developers involved with NRAS have reported that NRAS incentives can operate as a counter-cyclical stimulus to the construction industry in times of economic or construction downturn. ‘NRAS has been a significant driver in the expansion of notfor-profit community housing organisations, who have roles as both developers and tenancy managers of NRAS dwellings. Indeed, more than half of all
NRAS recipients are not-forprofit community housing organisations.’ Glenda Stevens, CEO of Homelessness Australia, said that NRAS had benefited many vulnerable Australians, including those at risk of homelessness.
‘NRAS was never designed to be a social housing program but is delivering benefits to thousands of low and moderate income households. It has also played a role in preventing homelessness by providing secure housing to many people at risk,’ Ms Stevens said.
Promising figures on new home lending: HIA Housing finance data released last week by the ABS indicate that lending for new homes was strong in January 2014, an auspicious signal for conditions in the residential construction sector in the new year, according to the Housing Industry Association. ‘The number of loans issued to owner occupiers for new homes is at its highest level in four years,’ said HIA economist Diwa Hopkins. ‘Lending for new investment property declined in January;
however, this follows five months of strong results in this category of housing finance.’ In January 2014 the number of owner occupier loans for the construction of new dwellings increased by 5.8 per cent, while the number of owner occupier loans for the purchase of new dwellings eased by 1.0 per cent. ‘The overall January result is a promising signal that recently improved conditions in the residential construction sector will continue into 2014,’ said Ms Hopkins.

The Byron Shire Echo March 18, 2014 47
Backlash the WA senate election on April 5 solely through crowdfunding at http://pozible. com/pirateswa2014. It raised $10,000 in just two weeks without having to go pirate hat in hand to the mining magnates. See more at http:// pirateparty.org.au.
Our annual sustainability supplement is included in this week’s Echo, and we hope you derive some benefit from it. Our writers are still optimistic that the planet and humankind can be saved from ecological disaster but it might take a teensy bit more effort from individuals and governments.
Echo Publications has added its name to the statement by local businesses calling for protection of the Cape Byron Marine Park. According to Save Our Marine Life, ‘The looming decision around permanently allowing fishing from the shore in protected sanctuary zones will be the state government’s first step in rolling back marine protection.

Rookie has lost his Rabbit. Local surfer Ari (Rookie) Browne lost his favourite finless ‘Rabbit’s Foot’ asymmetric board at The Pass last week. Shaped in California by Ryan Lovelace, the board (and Rookie) feature in Jack Coleman’s film The Groove Move, which will have its Australian premiere in Byron next month. Naturally Rookie hopes to get his Rabbit back. The board or any useful info leading to its return can be left at The Top Shop.
We’re very impressed by our local Australia Post staff. They forwarded on to us a letter simply addressed to ‘the editor of Mullumbimby 2484’. We’d like to assure concerned readers that we have no plans to edit Mullum – we’ll stick to newspapers. However, we may be taking over the internet. Google is now directing traffic to Echonetdaily echo. net.au as part of its news stream and the number of hits on the site is zooming up.

Now that Colorado has legalised cannabis smoking at home, it has produced a series of amusing TV ads reminding tokers that driving under the influence is still an offence. You can watch one of them here: http://bit.ly/potCO. Local stoners who reckon they are never ‘impaired’ by this friendly psychoactive are just kidding themselves. But of course there’s little good to be said for driving under the influence of alcohol, Ice, bulk anti-depressants or puerile rage, either.
