Hopes rise for hospital handover Paul Bibby
The campaign to have the old Byron District Hospital site placed in community hands has taken a significant step forward. A formal proposal backed by local political and business figures was put to the state government last Friday. Under the plan, believed to have considerable state government support, NSW Health would lease the 2,000sqm site to the community for a nominal fee with Byron Shire Council acting as lessee or trustee. The government would also provide $2.5m to fund the full refurbishment of the main hospital
building and the remediation work required on the site. This would pave the way for the dilapidated hospital to be transformed into a mixed-use community hub providing much-needed services for the local area.
Political play NSW Upper House MP Ben Franklin (Nationals) who helped put the proposal together and presented it to his parliamentary colleagues on Friday said he was ‘optimistic’ that it would be adopted. ‘I have had a number of conversations about this with the premier, the deputy premier and the health
minister,’ said Mr Franklin, the parliamentary secretary for northern NSW. ‘They are interested and engaged and supportive of the concept of maximising community space. ‘They haven’t given me any guarantees but I certainly haven’t been discouraged by anything they’ve said.’ On June 28 Byron Shire Council voted unanimously to support the proposal. This included agreeing to act as the lessee/trustee, and agreeing to oversee a facilities team to manage and maintain the facility, and its continued on page 2

With community trust in Byron Council at its lowest ebb in years the question now is what will the new GM, Mark Arnold, bring to the table to get the council back on track. Mark is no newbie to the Byron scene, having worked as the director of Corporate and Community Services for ten years. He has filled in as acting general manager since Gainger’s departure in January. While Mark says that ‘every general manager brings their own unique qualities’ to the role, when asked if there was anything that he will be doing differently from his predecessor, he focused on working with the council and the community as being a key part of his role. The three key elements that Mark would like to see the council improve during his five-year term are infrastructure, management of growth and its impacts, and working with the community on Council’s decision-making process.
Delegated powers Asked if he felt the previous GM had breached his delegated authority in the management of the Butler Street situation, he said that he felt the GM had ‘acted within his delegations that were there at the time.’ Nonetheless a new set of delegated powers for the general manager will be put to the August ordinary meeting of Council ‘and inside those delegations there will be a restriction or a guidance on when matters that are brought against Council have to be reported and the regularity of that reporting,’ said
Mark, highlighting that he is ‘looking to learn from the feedback and put that into the delegation.’ ‘Obviously when the delegation goes up, there will be community input through public access and other means and we’ll find out whether or not we’ve got that right or whether or not there are other things that Council and community will want to look at inside the delegation. I think it is important that we not only report up when matters are instigated 9by council) but when they are brought 9against council). And we’ll be looking at similar guidelines in respect of both.’ While the Butler Street Bypass is still slated to go ahead it will be dependent on the state and federal government coming to the party over the $8.5 million shortfall in funding. If these grants don’t come through, Mark has said the council will need to rethink its position and determine if it is prepared to fill the shortfall.
Engaging community Recognising that the Byron Shire community is very engaged, and often has different points of view on an issue, Mark is keen to look at how ‘deliberate democracy’ can be used to engage with the community. While the citizen jury was one approach, he said balancing cost and engagement was important. ‘At this stage we are working with Council to see whether or not it is possible to have a model that is the Byron model. One that is cost effective and can be used when you are dealing with those tricker questions.’ continued on page 2

Financially the council is in a better position than it was five years ago and has a ‘sound base’ for going forward. Mark said he recognises the communitie’s desire for more ‘granular’ and ‘indepth’ reporting on Council’s finances and that ‘how we report has changed and continues to change’.

Cooperation Despite having this political charge, the proposal for the site is the outcome of cooperation between locals from across the political spectrum including Mr Franklin, local Greens MP Tamara Smith, Labor councillor Paul Spooner and Byron Shire mayor Simon Richardson (Greens). It also has the support of key local business figures who are among approximately 80 locals who have written
While the council’s new website has been a source of frustration for many in the community with development applications being difficult to locate, historical documents missing and agendas and attachments too big to download for many, Mark has highlighted that they are in the process of improving the website. But he also noted ‘there is work still to be done’ and Council is keen ‘for people people to provide feedback on how to improve’.
Council is also looking to launch a new website by the end of July that will be dedicated to reporting on Council’s management of the sewage treatment plants (STP). The site will include information ‘around rainfall, inflows and outflows and will include any reporting of breaches’ to the EPA said Mark. It is apparent that the imcoming GM has the nexus between community, firmly in his sights.
formal letters in support of the plan. The proposal involves the creation of a community hub in which affordable rental accommodation is provided to organisations representing the welfare, health, education and cultural sectors. It includes a business plan under which rents would be structured in three tiers, with Tier 1 being for commercial organisations and Tier 3 being a zero-cost space for community projects. Once the facility is fully occupied, income would be distributed back to community organisations on a merit basis. Chris Hanley, the chairman of the community steering committee responsible for the plan, said that if the state government agreed to the proposal, he was confident it would work. ‘The business case is the demonstration that if the building is given to the community of Byron Shire with the money to fix it, the rents will be enough to sustain it,’ Mr Hanley said. ‘The building is pretty good inside but it needs some work and part of the money we’re asking for would go
into a sinking fund. ‘It’s an old building and some of the money we’re asking for would be held for any future repairs that are needed. The $2.5m is a quote from an experienced local architect.’ Fifteen organisations have supplied letters of intention, indicating their readiness and desire to be part of the hub. While they have asked not to be named publicly in order to protect their existing lease arrangements, The Echo has learnt that the list includes some of the region’s largest education and cultural institutions, as well as much smaller not-for-profit groups. ‘All of those who have expressed an interest are looking forward to getting spaces that don’t cost the earth,’ Mr Hanley said. ‘Rent is so high in Byron Bay, this is a great opportunity.’ He said the proposal and the campaign as a whole had demonstrated the ability of locals to work together for the common good. ‘This is the outcome of more than a year of work from a very dedicated and smart group of people. ‘We wouldn’t even be having this conversation without Ben Franklin. But every single political group has supported this – (local Greens MP) Tamara Smith has been very helpful, (local Labor councillor) Paul Spooner, and the Mayor. ‘We’ve also had letters of support that would blow you away, from the former matron of the hospital Shirley Nelson, to young people in their 20s who were born at the hospital.’

relationship with the community. Assisting those campaigning for the site to become a community hub is the looming state election. The Nationals lost the seat of Ballina in the last election after a 27-year reign and will no doubt be keen to wrest it back from the Greens at the next poll in early 2019. A positive announcement about the future of the hospital site in the leadup to the vote would almost certainly boost their chances.

Timeframe Mr Franklin said he had asked his parliamentary colleagues to make a decision on the plan within ‘a small number of months’. ‘There’s an election within nine months’ time; we definitely want it off the books by then. I want it locked and loaded,’ he said. ‘I’m hopeful that we’ll be able to do it before then.’

Local News Two years to take action: u-turn time #NoNewCoal
continued from page 1
Dr Mary Gardner
To avoid global catastrophe, our society has two years at most to start acting on plans to achieve zero carbon emissions in every workplace and home by 2025. With this statement, Professor Will Steffen launched his new global tour The Big U-Turn Ahead to a full house at Byron Theatre on 27 June. Professor Steffen is one of the world’s foremost specialists in Earth System science and a leader in international global change research. Christobel Munson from ZEB explained that with elections coming up in 2019, ‘it’s time to start rattling the cage’. Both levels of government have failed to create action plans to reduce Australia’s emissions. From the panel, Sue Higginson, environmental lawyer and Greens candidate for state seat of Lismore, described the international trade tours conducted by the current NSW government. Their objective is to sell more coal to be sourced from new coal mines, which together will exceed the size of the Adani mine proposed
in Queensland. Yearly emissions in Byron Shire are calculated to be eight tonnes per person. This is half of the Australian average but double the global average.
Carbon crunch Professor Steffen explained what this means in terms of the carbon crunch. If carbon emissions were to peak between 2016 and 2020 and society is carbon neutral by 2040, there is a 70 per cent chance that global temperatures would only rise by two degrees Celsius. Twenty years may be enough time for society to make that u-turn. If peak carbon is delayed till 2025, zero carbon must be reached by 2035 – in only half the time.
The planet is one holistic system already responding to climate change. Since the 1950s, its ocean absorbed 93 per cent of the carbon emissions, expanding and raising its level. Global land and ice each absorbed three per cent in total. Although the atmosphere absorbed only one per cent, extreme weather is already changing the planet. Join the global effort to reach zero emissions by starting with the actions list on the ZEB Facebook page. As Will Steffen said, the urgency and the magnitude of the social action required are great. At stake are the lives of six of the 7.5 billion humans, not to mention other life on Earth itself.
In Australia actions took place around the country as people once again made a stand last Saturday against opening up future coal mines. Organised by Frontline Action on Coal, over 25 actions happened all over the country. Anandan Mcewen from Frontline Action on Coal said: ‘We need to keep up the pressure on the government and especially support the frontlines right now to physically blockade and halt construction of the Adani mega coal mine to save our climate, the Great Barrier Reef, and our children’s futures.
Be the blockade ‘At the historic Bentley blockade the Byron Shire community proved its power through the inspiring will of locals mobilising in our thousands to the blockade near Lismore and we attained historic victory. Now it is time to mobilise again. ‘We have crossed a climate tipping point and it will take concerted, non-violent civil resistance to tip it back. This end of financial year, we draw the red line on coal.’ To support the blockade go to: www.frontlineaction.org.

Celebrating NAIDOC week in Byron Shire Everyone is invited to mark the start of NAIDOC week on Monday 9 July at a flagraising ceremony at the Council Chambers in Mullumbimby. That evening the opening of the Aboriginal Art Exhibition will take place at 5.30pm at the Mullumbimby Civic Hall. The exhibition closes on July 8. The theme for this year is Because of Her, We Can – an acknowledgement of the role of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women in communities around the country. ‘It’s an honour for the council to work so closely with the Arakwal people, who are the traditional custodians of the land, and I am so proud of the work that has been done over the years to make Byron a centrepiece when it comes to recognition and reconciliation,’ mayor Simon Richardson said. The Arakwal NAIDOC film night will be held on Tuesday 10 July from 6.30pm at the Byron Community Centre while the Mullum family fun day takes place on
Aunty Maggie and the Womba Wakgun is just one of the films that will be playing at this year’s Arakwal NAIDOC week film screening in Byron Bay.

The Bundjalung of Byron family cultural day will be held on Thursday 12 July with a Railway Park march at 10am culminating at Dening Park, Byron Bay, for celebrations between 11am and 2pm. ‘I encourage everyone to reflect on the history of the Arakwal people in this area, and celebrate their culture,’ Mr Richardson said.
Gillian Triggs and the ‘Mullumbimby Charter of Human Rights’ Eve Sinton
Former human rights commissioner Gillian Triggs has called for an Australian charter of human rights. Speaking at the Ngara Institute’s annual lecture in Mullumbimby last Saturday, Professor Triggs said Australia is the only democracy without a bill of rights, and over-reach in executive power by successive governments in the 21st century was deeply damaging to the public. ‘We now need, as a matter of urgency, some form of legislated charter of rights to protect fundamental common-law freedoms in Australia and ensure we meet our international human rights obligations that we as a nation have committed to by treaty over the last 70 years or so,’ she said. ‘It could be quite simple. We could draft one tonight – the Mullumbimby Charter of Human Rights.’
Protecting the most vulnerable Professor Triggs said the current legal system is failing all Australians, especially the most vulnerable. ‘I date the regression of

respect for human rights in Australia [to] that dramatic year in 2001 – the children overboard, the Tampa and 9/11,’ she said. ‘Australia has failed to protect many fundamental freedoms or to comply with its international human rights obligations and has passed laws explicitly to deny those obligations.’ Examples include the government’s attempt to silence whistleblowers with the threat of two-year prison sentences, and reduced funding for community legal centres to restrict their advocacy. She said the recent passage of foreign influence and espionage bills is very worrying. ‘The Foreign Influence Bill
could criminalise publication of information including opinions or reports of conversations to international organisations. That could include information and opinions about food security, energy security, climate security, economic conditions, migration and refugee policies because these may affect Australia’s political, military or economic relations with another country’. She said our implied freedom of political communication may be breached by broad definitions in offences that criminalise dealing with information that may harm national security. The public interest defence does not extend to journalists’ sources or civil society advo-
cates. The evidential burden is on the defendant and there is a potential 10-year jail penalty. Triggs said, ‘It is the most vulnerable in our society – the homeless, the mentally ill, those in administrative detention without trial, Indigenous Australians and families – who shoulder the burden of Australia’s declining respect for human rights.’ She said a federally legislated charter of rights would better protect the rights of citizens, minorities and noncitizens, and ensure a culture of respect for the rights that underpin our democracy – freedom of speech, the right to vote and equality. ‘Above all, Australia could return to the rule of law and the principles of legality upon which our multicultural democracy is based,’ she said.

Bush wallaby attacked by dogs on Belongil beach Aslan Shand
Two dogs attacked a bush wallaby at the ‘no dog area’ of the beach, approximately 250m north of Elements of Byron resort, last Wednesday. ‘As I started towards the beach a wallaby burst out of the dune and about one to two metres behind it were two dogs barking and growling,’ said Steve Medcalf, who walks on the beach every day. The two dogs chased the wallaby into the ocean where they were able to get a hold on it; one of the dogs had it by the ear while the other had it by the throat.
Dogs not at fault Steve headed into the water with a stick yelling out at the dogs who appeared to be border collie/kelpie crosses. One let go and swam back to the beach while the one who had th wallaby by the neck kept a hold.
‘I got the other dog off,’ said Steve who pointed out that ‘it is not the dogs’ fault. It is the people who own the dogs who are responsible.’ The wallaby was being swept north towards Brunswick Heads and Steve realised he needed to get back into the water and save the wallaby. ‘I went out and got him – he was pretty exhausted. Once I got hold of him he was pretty calm. By the time I got him back to shore he was getting pretty heavy.’ With the help of his friend Louis they lay the wallaby on the dune covered with a towel. ‘Then we made sure there were no more dogs in the area.’ They called WIRES and Council to report what had happened. A couple who had stopped to take photos of the rescue told Steve they had seen one of the dogs go into a white van in the car park. ‘I was still furious so I got

Louis and another person and we confronted the man in the van,’ said Steve. ‘We had strong words with him and told him the rangers were on their way.’ It is believed that the owner, a visitor from Vitoria, had three dogs that he had let out to roam while he slept in his van near the beach.
WIRES ‘It is essential for the wellbeing of wildlife that people keep their dogs restrained on beaches,’ said a spokesperson for WIRES. ‘It is very important to remember if you do encounter a wallaby that has been chased into the sea that all at-
tempts are made to minimise stress to the animal. Macropods (wallabies, pademelons and kangaroos) develop a stress response called myopathy that can lead to their death within 2–14 days after the stressful incident. ‘It is natural for us to think that because the dog did not catch the wallaby, no harm has been done. However, the wallaby may still face a painful and slow death. ‘Wallabies can swim quite well, and in some situations a wallaby that has swum out in the sea or a river will find its way back to land. Each situation is different, however, and some wallabies may become exhausted. If it has been pulled from the water then cover it with a towel and move all people and dogs well away from the animal to give it time to recover. Importantly, call WIRES immediately on 6628 1898 so that a specialist rescuer can attend.’

Allegations of bullying, financial malpractice at FSG Chris Dobney
Some management staff of collapsed disability service provider FSG were paid out in cash before the organisation moved into voluntary administration, according to a whistleblower. And staff are ‘coming out of the woodwork’ with allegations of bullying by managers, the Services Union says. The union’s QLD executive president Jennifer Thomas told The Echo that while it didn’t have evidence of the alleged payouts, rumours were ‘rife’ inside the organisation and ‘we understand the Queensland government is alerting ASIC regarding management practices’. She added forensic accountants working to uncov-
er the reasons for the company’s collapse had also been made aware of the claims. ‘We’ve called on the Queensland government to investigate allegations of bullying,’ she said. John Park and Joanne Dunn of FTI Consulting have been appointed as voluntary administrators, effective at 30 June. The first meeting of creditors will be on July 11. But the whistleblower who spoke to The Echo on condition of anonymity claims management knew two months ago they were going to go into administration. Managers were advised not to pay contractors, and those connected with FSG propperty assets were advised that they would not have funds available about 30
days beforehand,’ according to the insider.
Letter to staff The union was also scathing of the official ‘farewell’ from the company that came as a letter from chairperson Lady Barbara Hickey. ‘On behalf of your FSG Board of Directors, we wish to thank each and every one of you for your care, commitment and passion for those that YOU have walked along side for so many, many years,’ she wrote. ‘We understand how difficult, confusing and heartbreaking these past few weeks have been for so many of you and for those you care for. We will never forget you and FSG and hope that our paths will cross sometime again in the
near future,’ she concluded. The union member who forwarded the email said it was ‘a pity none of the board had the decency to meet with workers directly or turn up to the Fair Work Commission in person – or answer any questions! ‘They may all have to answer to ASIC now.’
Entitlements While frontline workers and direct support staff will find a new home with provider CPL it could take months for staff to receive their final entitlements. Q Read more on this story

Student support key to success at Byron Community College
Local Indigenous woman Lois Cook is set to be evicted from her camp near Lennox Head after the NSW Supreme Court found that her claim to be the owner of the land had ‘no legal basis’. Justice Adams ordered that a writ of possession be executed in relation to the site on July 3. Ms Cook’s camp can be removed by authorities if she refuses to leave. Ms Cook has been engaged in a long-running dispute with the Jali Aboriginal Land Council over the camp. She has stated that she has set up the Gagamai Ngangbal Suveran Free State on the site and is living there with a group of supporters. According to the judgment, the Jali ALC asserts they are the rightful custodians.
Locals will be familiar with Byron Community College as the place to learn anything you have a passion for – cooking, painting, Spanish, basket weaving – but the Mullumbimby-based Byron Community College is also a key provider for Vocational Education and Training (VET). For the past few years, Byron Community College VET course completion rates have stood at nearly twice the national average. Student support officer Lance Hopson credits this to the college’s ongoing student support. ‘We pride ourselves on working closely with students,’ he says. ‘A student can come in any time of the day and I’ll stop what I’m doing and make time for them.’ The college works proactively with students at the
They, along with Ballina Council, also say that the camp has insufficient hygiene facilities, is in an Environmental Protection (Wetlands) Zone, is at risk of being caught in a bushfire, and has unauthorised electrical connections. Ms Cook argues that neither Jali ALC nor Ballina Council have the authority to order her removal. She says she is the true owner of the land and claims the right to occupy it in accordance with the traditional law and customs of the Nyangbul people. Q Read more on this story

beginning of study to identify and sort out educational needs and life issues to minimise disruption to study. Weekly drop-in sessions allow VET students access to help with assignments and study organisation, computers and printing. One-on-one tutoring is also available. Lance understands that
‘school is not for everyone’ and respects the courage it takes to attempt education again, especially if foundation skills are missing. Adult education traditionally teaches these skills separately, but the college weaves foundation skills into their vocational coursework. Practical, real-world skills are core
components of Certificate III and IV VET courses and work placements often lead to employment. Fostering opportunities for local employment is a large part of the college’s community-based ethos. Mullumbimby local Leon Dawes joined an employment pathways project between the college and Byron Council ‘to get a job’. He completed four months of classroom-based training and work experience and has been successful in securing a job with Council. ‘I definitely think the course I did will help me in the future, particularly for interviews,’ he says. ‘If I had the chance to study at the college again I would love to. I found the college easy going and the teachers were awesome, not at all like at school.’
Teven community celebrates a win against the asphalt plant Teven locals have fought off a toxic asphalt plant in their valley after a swift response to the proposal. Holcim, owner of the Teven quarry, and Fulton Hogan, who were proposing the asphalt plant within the quarry, stated in a letter delivered to Amanda
Reardon and Josh Browne they were ‘not proceeding with a lease to Fulton Hogan for an asphalt plant within our Teven quarry site’. ‘I saw a work vehicle pull up and a young man came through the gate,’ said Amanda. ‘He told me he was from
Holcim and I said, “I hope it’s good news”. He handed me the letter and said, “I think you’ll be very pleased”. I read the letter as he was walking back to the car. I couldn’t believe it. I called out, “Thanks for listening to the community!” He waved and was gone.’
The cost of the fight, even though it lasted only two months, has been high as they had to engage professionals to assist the community effort. Contributions both large and small are welcome at www. gofundme.com/nobloodyway to help defray the costs.

Local News Byron Public receive a gift from outer space Students from Byron Bay Public School received a gift last week that was literally out of this world. The Star Stuff festival of space, science and astronomy donated an iron meteorite weighing half a kilogram that fell to Earth almost 5,000 thousand years ago in Argentina. It would have felt like an atom bomb at the time of impact and left a crater 14km wide. Since then about 300 tonnes of the Campo Del Ceilo meteorite has been retrieved and this piece came from the collection of Geoff Notkin (USA). Geoff is a meteorite expert best known for his work on the TV series Meteorite Men and he will be speaking at Star Stuff

that could be handled by several generations of children,’ Mr O’Donnell said. ‘We both wanted the school to have a piece that could be experienced – not
just locked up behind glass. A literal touchstone. ‘For many kids this will be the first time they’ve been in contact with something that didn’t come from Earth.’ Star Stuff is a two-day weekend of space, science and astronomy with 11 speakers also including Fraser Cain (Canada), Amy Shira Teitel (USA), Dr Alan Duffy, Greg Quicke (aka Space Gandalf) and many more. Mr O’Donnell has been an advocate for space tourism in the region as it is low-impact and relies on the preservation of dark skies – a precious natural resource that is threatened by urban development.

Kingscliff confirmed as new Tweed hospital site Chris Dobney
The controversial original Kingscliff site for the Tweed Valley Hospital has been reconfirmed following a reselection process by NSW Health Infrastructure. Health minister Brad Hazzard announced on Saturday (June 30) the new $534 mil-
lion hospital would be sited on existing farmland opposite Kingscliff TAFE, ‘following extensive community feedback and support for the greenfield site’. However, both Labor and the Greens continue to object to the decision. Labor is throwing its support behind an alternative site at Kings
Forest. But that also had its critics including Tweed’s Team Koala, which said it straddled a koala corridor. In the mean time the Greens north coast MP Dawn Walker has called for the new Tweed Hospital to be re-developed on its existing site in Tweed Heads. She queried why there was
‘such a push from Labor and the Nationals to build the new hospital south of the Tweed River on fertile farmland or a greenfield site with a regional wildlife corridor that is a long way away from the population centre of Tweed Heads’.

Tasty treats launch Bangalow’s Sample Food Festival
Byron celebrates new happy hoops with a community bike ride
The Sample Food Festival has been soaring to new heights in the past couple of years, so where better to launch this year’s event than an airport? The annual food festival isn’t officially taking off until September 1. But patrons at Gold Coast Airport were given an early taste of what will be on offer when celebrity chef and author Darren Robertson hosted a morning tea at the facility on Monday. Judging by the punters’ enthusiasm, the platters of locally sourced olives, cheeses, dips and salami were far superior to plane food. Robertson, the co-host of Channel 10’s Recipe to Riches, announced the program events for this year’s festival at
A community bike ride is taking place in Byron Bay on Saturday, July 7, to celebrate the completion of the Byron Bike Rack project. The community initiative supported by Stone & Wood Brewery and Byron Shire Council has seen the installation of the sculptural bike racks designed by Bangalow landscapers Larc Collective at four locations around town. Luke Jones and David Thompson from Larc explained their design saying, ‘The suite of Happy Hoops consists of peace loop, wave window, sun follower and rainbow ring all alluding to the life we live in Byron Bay. The culture of Byron and the northern rivers is deeply rooted around the beautiful environment we live amongst and each of the four elements reflect this.’ The Byron Bike Rack project was a public competition that ran for over two months at the end of last year calling for local residents to enter their designs. The aim of the competition was to encourage the public to ride rather than

Take care warming up this winter Winter is here and plenty of heaters are being pulled out of storage to warm everyone up. However, Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) urges care to avoid a fire in the home. Winter sees a 10 per cent rise in the number of home fires, with more fires in bed-
rooms and loungerooms owing to heaters and electric blankets. However, it is the kitchen that accounts for 45 per cent of residential fires. ‘Flames or heat sources being left unattended are the most common cause contributing to kitchen fires,’ said
FRNSW chief superintendent Mick Morris. Recommendations include: check the smoke alarm, keep candles away from curtains, never leave cooking unattended. Visit www.fire.nsw.gov.au for more information.

The result is a super fun, simple design – both a complement to the visions of our contemporary, coastal
village and an ode to the past that adds to the aesthetics of our town’

Solar and battery storage now within reach SAE Group is proud to bring an incredible market sounding offer to customers, with only 50 solar and battery storage systems available. SAE Group ﬁrmly believes it’s time the battery equation got a little more appealing. ‘Solar systems make great economic sense in today’s energy climate, however the battery conversation is just not quite there yet in terms of affordability for most households, so we thought it was time we did something about that.’ says Glen Ashton, Managing Director of SAE Group, “Bringing this to market is incredibly exciting, with Redback leading the way in terms of Australian technology and innovation in the energy sector”. The 7.26kW system, comprising 22 x 330w Seraphim panels, and the Redback Smart Hybrid System and 4.8kWh of lithium-ion batteries is available for just $9995.00, delivering a massive saving of $3,675.00. This offer is designed to test how the market responds to affordable battery technology. “If the market responds favourably, we will push ahead with delivering this technology at a better price to convert Australia to renewable energy at a much faster rate. This complete system offers our customers energy freedom at less than the cost of some batteries on the market today” says Glen. The Redback system’s advanced technology intelligently manages and stores solar energy, enabling you to consume more of the solar power you generate and buy less from the grid, all at the fraction of the cost of most other systems on the market. With the option to connect the inbuilt uninterrupted backup power supply in the Redback system to critical circuits in your home, you can rest easy knowing you can have backup power if the grid goes down. Best of all, it’s backed by Redback’s 5-year warranty. The hybrid system offers ﬂexibility too, with the option to add more storage if needed. “It’s great to see a forward-thinking business like SAE Group, who shares a common goal to convert Australia to clean, reliable energy, bringing such a competitively priced offer to market to put solar and storage within reach of more Australians” said Philip Livingston, Managing Director of Redback Technologies. Complementing the unit with Seraphim 330-watt panels rounds out a high-quality system that is designed to withstand the harshest of Australian climates. The team at SAE Group are Master Electricians ﬁrst and foremost, so you can also rest easy knowing you’re dealing with highly experienced, qualiﬁed staff.

Shorten’s backflip on tax cuts Volume 33 #04
July 4, 2018
Nats fail farmers On November 30, 1987 – thirty years ago – Monash University hosted the inaugural Greenhouse conference that was to start planning a response to the global warming that scientists had been warning of since at least the 60s. Yet it is only in recent weeks that the National Farmers Federation (NFF) has turned a corner on climate change. The NFF president Fiona Simpson was reported in The Guardian on Saturday saying that ‘people on the land can’t and won’t ignore what is right before their eyes. “We have been experiencing some wild climate variability… It’s in people’s face”.’ What boggles my mind is that the National Party – ‘the party for regional Australia’ – is only now beginning to address climate change and its impacts because it has been dragged to the table by its own grassroots support base. By systematically ignoring climate-change science the Nationals could not have done regional Australia a greater disservice. Farmers and graziers are and will continue to be on the front line of climate change. These are the people whose livelihoods depend on the right amount of sun and rain – arriving at the right time and in the right amounts for crops to grow and animals to thrive. By denying the clear scientific evidence and dire warnings that respected scientists worldwide have been putting forward for over 30 years the Nationals – through a lack of vision and foresight and in many cases wilful ignorance – have fundamentally failed those they claim to represent. Rather than helping Australian farmers build resilience and mitigate the far-reaching impacts of climate change they have undermined them at every level. The Nationals should be greener than The Greens. As soon as there was a possibility that weather and ecosystems could be affected they should have been taking the threat to their voters with the utmost seriousness. They should have been leading the debate on sustainable forestry, renewable energy, reducing reliance on fossil fuels and on how to reduce global warming. Instead they have supported coal mines, stripped away protections from old-growth forests and waterways and undermined the science that has been telling them what the impacts of these decisions are. By not being the leaders of the debate on climate change and ecosystem sustainability it is the future and livelihoods of their own constituents that they have failed. They had the opportunity and influence to bring genuine, considered and influential voices to the debate from the beginning. If they had, Australia could have been at the forefront of preparations for climate change. This was an opportunity squandered. They should have led the debate. They could have inspired a generation.

The Byron Shire Echo Established 1986
Bill Shorten’s decision last week was a real shock – but it was the second decision, not the first, that was the surprising one. For years Shorten had been committing his party to limiting company tax cuts to firms worth $2 million or less. This was his position before the 2016 election and it had not changed. Labor voted against the additional cuts, and although the government parleyed them up to $50 million with the aid of some of the senate crossbenchers, the opposition’s policy had not been revised. Thus when Shorten was asked unexpectedly if he was still determined to repeal cuts for those firms worth $10 million to $50 million, he replied simply: yes. No story, one might have thought – except for the press gallery, feverishly pursuing its latest whiff of a leadership dispute, any leadership dispute – party and personnel irrelevant. And of course, for The Australian, it was all shock horror. This is hardly surprising: our national daily’s default position is shock, horror, outrage, resentment, belligerence, and all were on offer for the next few days. Rupert’s minions urged Shorten to flip, to forget about his long-standing platform and give the hard-working family businesses (and anyone else who demanded it loudly enough) a tax break – and, after a hastily convened meeting of a somewhat panicked shadow cabinet, he did just that. If and when Labor attains government, the existing tax regime will stand; but what has not been implemented, even if it has been legislated, will still be subject to repeal. This means that the cuts that came in on Sunday, as well as those already churning through
the books of the smaller and medium sized firms, are confirmed. Immediate problem solved, but the cost for Shorten’s courage and credibility may be considerable. At one level the backdown was simple pragmatism. The view was that while it was fair enough to oppose and vote against the existing cuts, once they were in place, unscrambling the eggs was just too hard.
money without hindrance. The next lot – those up to $50m are certainly fewer; various authoritative estimates suggest anywhere between 10,000 and 20,000. Given that there are probably very few Labor voters among them, they could be considered dispensable. But some of them – those up to $25 million – were already trousering the money and the rest were pawing at the ground.
Saving face is what you do when you eat a shit sandwich by Mungo MacCallum The punters are rightly sceptical about Malcolm Turnbull’s long-term aspirations, the six to ten years for the bonanza he has promised. But what we are talking about now is not the pie in the sky but the money in the bank. They were ready to complain all the way to the ballot box if any bastard tried to take it away from them. While the threat remained latent and largely unspoken it could be managed. But to hear it uttered so bluntly and abruptly spooked them. So Shorten had to listen and he did. He flipped. The biggest problem – at least in terms of raw numbers – were at the bottom end, the $2 million to $10 million cohort. There were at least 80,000 of them, and they presumably all had friends, relatives and employees. Shorten’s throwaway line did not target them directly, but it did draw attention to the overarching policy, so it was comparatively easy to tell them that they were okay, that could keep their
In all the circumstances, the most important of which were the looming by-elections, the safest option was to fold. The explanation – that Labor had suddenly found that the cuts to date were affordable after all but that anything further would be irresponsible – fooled nobody. It wasn’t even meant to; saving face is what you do when you eat a shit sandwich. Mathias Corman has all but patented the technique; after yet another rebuff on the full corporate tax cuts package, he just bobs up like a Belgian jumping bean, eager for more. The theory appears to be that once the by-elections are out of the way, Pauline Hanson’s fear of losing votes in Longman will bring her back to the negotiating table, where the bribe of a brand-new coal-fired power station will get her and her sole remaining One Nation ally over the line. But even if such an economic, political and social travesty is in the pipeline, that would still leave Corman two votes short. There will
need to be more backhanders. The tax cuts have become something of an obsession on both sides of the aisle. For the coalition it is all about Labor’s politics of envy; for Labor it is all about the coalition’s politics of greed. Both Turnbull and Shorten have tried to widen the debate to include such things as education and hospitals, but only as either a result of or an alternative to the tax cuts: our civil society is in danger of becoming a purely economic battlefield. And it is in this context that Labor’s targeting of Turnbull’s wealth is significant. The TV ads about his banking career are hardly illegitimate, in spite of the limp-wristed protests of the right: our prime minister’s endless barrage of personal abuse and invective about Shorten’s alleged failings do not leave him a lot of high ground. And his defence – that he has worked hard to make a lot of money, just like all real aspirational Australians should – is a touch ingenuous; not a lot of other Australians start with a healthy seven-figure inheritance. Turnbull is not a candidate for a biography entitled Log Cabin to The Lodge. But he is, at least in his own terms, an unqualified success story. By making himself a role model for the aspiration of avarice he sells not only himself short, but all of us. And by playing the same game in reverse, Shorten is compounding the descent to the cesspool of greed, envy and division. Nothing will change for at least a month, until and unless the by-elections provide a circuit breaker, which, given the relative imminence of a national poll, they probably won’t. But at least they might be a distraction.

Letters ney University journal Control and Therapy in 2014 that live export can never be humane. The department has taken worthwhile action in suspending the licence of the largest live exporter. Now it’s more than time for the next step: to ban this vile trade for good. Desmond Bellamy PETA Australia, Byron Bay

The Agriculture Department deserves a vote of thanks from all Australians for its decision to suspend the licence of the largest live sheep exporter, Emanuel Exports. Pictures of dead and dying heat-stressed sheep aboard the Awassi Express on a trip to the Middle East sparked public outrage earlier this year and led to a government inquiry into the trade. The premier of Western Australia, from where the ship departed, described the behaviour of the export companies as ‘appalling’.
This was not an isolated incident. Every year, millions of Australian sheep and cows are sent on hellish journeys to Southeast Asia and the Middle East, and Agriculture Department figures indicate that more than 2.5 million animals have died on live-export ships before even reaching their destination, from heat stress or starvation, as they don’t recognise the pellets they’re given as food. Nor is this suffering, either on the sea or at the destination, new. A joint investigation in 2006 by PETA and Animals
Australia documented workers in an Egyptian slaughterhouse stabbing Australian cows, gouging their eyes out, and slashing their leg tendons. These tragic and unnecessary scenes occur with sickening regularity, one of the worst being the death of thousands of sheep, literally baked alive, on their way to the Middle East in 2013 on the Bader III. This trade is only made financially possible by radically cutting all considerations of animal welfare. Not surprisingly, a veterinarian who worked on board these ships wrote in the Syd-

Letters continued from page 11 illegal shed that was recently built without fees, DA, or any consent by from the owner of the land – Byron Council. How many men’s sheds does ‘The Biggest Small town in Australia’ need? The illegal building is a 37m2 shed, which was filled 500mm above ground on bolted footings, has electrical power and a water tank. The new complex being proposed includes three sheds totalling 196m2 on concrete pavers, with water tanks, solar panels at a budget of $75,000.
North Coast news daily: On their website Community Gardens asks for donations because they receive no recurrent government funding and rely on donations, memberships, grants and fundraising to survive. $75K is a lot of money to have raised considering this. As an average ratepayer in the Shire if I intended to build anything like a carport, a pergola or even a shed I still need to lodge an application, prepare architectural and engineer’s plans, get various reports and wait three to six months for a decision.
But it appears these rules don’t apply equally! The planning report for this new men’s shed, including the illegally erected structure, has been designed by Social Habitat, the same group working with councillors to propagate the development of a ‘tiny home affordable housing’ project at the same location – the Mullumbimby Sports and Recreation fields. The rezoning of this land from Sports and Recreational to Residential has been given Gateway approval by
the state government. Now comes community consultation, something our council is being very tight lipped about. It will be interesting to see what happens under the new general manager – will a set of rules apply to ratepayers while behind closed doors councillors and staff pat each other’s backs and flip the bird to the rest of us?

Over the months that new GM Mark Arnold was acting GM he gave a clear indication that his heart was in the right place. During public access if you ask a question the correct process is that the answer to the question, if taken on notice, is published in the next agenda. In the past some general managers have not liked that. The problem for them, in my opinion, was that if they fudged the reply, then at the next meeting I’d get five min-
netdaily.net.au utes to explain why the reply was lacking. So they would defy the code of meeting practice and simply hand over individual replies to the questioner; the notion that a public question warranted a public reply eluded him entirely. But when Mark Arnold became acting GM last year, he undertook to publish my missed reply in the next agenda. Some months later he then published all the accumulated individual replies in the next agenda. During these events our mayor kept silent. Mark doesn’t exactly have a reputation as an alpha male, so I just hope that after years of suffering second-fiddlehood he now comes into his own. He’ll need to because there are seniorish staff who are content with the mushroom culture that manipulates elected councillors via the control of information. So if Mark insisted, for example, that staff provide informative answers rather than evasive waffles, he’d likely find himself in Coventry. To add to his problems there is the reality that staff expect the GM to defend them; indeed if the first principle of bureaucracy is ‘cover your arse’, the second principle is ‘cover your mates’ arses’. A GM who fails to cover for his staff, no matter how incompetent or dishonest they may be, is in an unenviable situation. Fast Buck$ Coorabell
I am a mother, a grandmother and physician. I have had measles and seen all of the complications including the rarest and cruelest: the four in 100,000 chance of subacute pansclerosing encephalitis, which slowly destroys a child’s brain seven to 10 years after they have apparently fully recovered from measles. Vaccination is a matter of choice informed by facts. Some of the participants in this debate have misunderstood what the ‘herd’ is in respect to herd immunity. It does not just relate to Byron but the whole of Australia. In that respect it is not the two million visitors to Byron who are a risk to us, it is us who are a risk for them. Take the example of measles immunisation. On average nationally the protection rate is 93 per cent.

Tweed hospital a political football Dear politicians, do the words ‘pot’, ‘kettle’ and ‘black’ have any significance for you? How can you call Labor’s choice of Kings Forest as their site for the new Tweed Valley hospital bizarre? It is a greenfield site that fulfils all the criteria, the most important one being above the probably maximum flood level for the hospital site. The fact that a complete health precinct can be planned around it, rather than inappropriate ad hoc development at the Kingscliff site, is a real bonus. How can you continue to mislead the public by saying the choice by Health Infrastructure NSW has been transparent with community consultation. To the health minister Brad Hazzard: at the meeting last Monday night you heard that a total of 600 submissions had been received, and a further 600 conversations had happened in local shopping centres and markets.
What a miserable consultation this has been, when our Tweed population is over 90,000! Tweed Heads residents still don’t realise that their hospital is closing as a hospital because you and your staff refuse to state this, but indulge in obfuscation to fool them, by saying that such decisions are way into the future. How can you plan a hospital for the next 30 to 40 years if you can’t plan for the next four years. Sorry, I’ve just seen your latest press release which states 60 to 70 years into the future! My apologies... Your choice of the Kingscliff site (and yes it is in Kingscliff as well as a bit of Cudgen) is bizarre. Why try to ruin a wonderful seaside village and significant farming land forever? You know what a huge impact a major referral hospital will have on the surrounding environment. Don’t you care that over
continued from page 12 per cent of five-year-olds. One in 10 children who get measles will get ear infections, which may lead to permanent hearing impairment, 1 in 20 pneumonia (the major cause of death from measles) and 1 in 1,000 encephalitis (brain swelling), which can lead to convulsions, deafness and intellectual impairment. Is this the lasting memory we want to give our visitors? Julia Lowe Suffolk Park
flict is one of the standard canards routinely promulgated by Israel’s apologists. But tit fails to recognise the glaring power disparities involved. It is quite obvious that Israel has no intention of ever letting the Palestinians achieve a viable state and for as long as that remains the policy of the Zionist regime, prospects for the Palestinians will remain bleak.
7,000 residents in the immediate vicinity, who have chosen to live here for the peaceful coastal atmosphere, will have their quality of life severely affected by traffic gridlock and noise pollution? It is bizarre that such a huge development will occur within one kilometre of our pristine beach at Kingscliff. Are there any other hospitals this close to prime beachfront anywhere in Australia? At least Luke Foley and Walt Secord have listened to the community on this, and have acted decisively. You shouldn’t underestimate the depth of community anger about your bizarre choice of site for our new hospital. Barbara Roughan Kingscliff Q The outcome of any war, political or otherwise, is always determined by a decision made long before the results come in and those in-
volved rarely if ever know it. The decision by Justine Elliot and the current NSW Labor Opposition leader to trade our future $340 million hospital for perceived political gain to Leda Developments’ Kings Forest development is just another classic example of this principle. They have deliberately made the much-needed new hospital a political football for the coming state election. Like Lily Tomlin says, ‘no matter how cynical you become, it’s never enough to keep up’. Even the dimmest political wit would know this is utter folly, strategically silly and an unnecessarily tenuous position to put yourself and your side in. It proves Justine has been in power way too long. The famous political saying remains true. Oppositions don’t win elections, dumb incumbents lose them. T Sharples Tweed Heads

floating in the ocean. The issue is close to the heart of Southern Cross University’s National Marine Science Centre where leading researchers focus on maintaining healthy marine ecosystems and sustainable marine resources. In keeping with this view, the National Marine Science Centre has now become ‘plastic neutral’. ‘In an effort to minimise our plastic consumption and to show leadership in mitigating the impacts of plastics in our environment, we are ‘plastic neutral’ from 1 July,’ said NMSC director Professor Steve Smith. ‘Basically, this means that we will avoid single-use plastics in our operational purchasing wherever possible and identify ways to recycle unavoidable plastics before we purchase them. ‘We will also implement some simple procedures to
facilitate more effective collection of discarded plastic for transformation and repurposing in a “closed loop economy” approach.’ Professor Smith has been researching marine debris for more than a decade, documenting the quantity and impacts of plastics in Australia and the broader region (Indonesia, Papua New Guinea). His team is currently working with the NSW Government to measure the success of the Container Deposit Scheme in reducing the volume of debris in coastal ecosystems. Professor Smith said the initiative had the support of NMSC staff and students. ‘Ultimately reducing the sheer volume of plastics is about improving the health of the planet and humans, given the tiny bits of plastic entering the food chain starting with the fish and shellfish we eat.’

Trump to pick a judge while Libs and Labor ban protesting Phillip Frazer
by Ian Rogers The first two events in the once-Grand Chess Tour were completed this month with US Grandmaster Hikaru Nakamura leading eight other elite players. Whereas the original concept of the GCT was to unite the majority of the best classical tournaments in the world, the 2018 incarnation includes only one classical tournament, the Sinquefield Cup in Saint Louis. June’s GCT tournaments in Belgium and France included only rapid and blitz chess, so it was not surprising that, in the absence of World Champion Magnus Carlsen, fast chess specialist Nakamura found the format to his liking. The faster format is popular with organisers, who spend less on hosting the event, and players, who earn big money for just a few days’ work. (Nakamura and compatriot Wesley So have already topped $US50,000 each in prizes for their cameos in Leuven and Paris.) However, watching the world’s best producing thud and blunder chess is a dispiriting experience. Paris wild card Vladimir
Kramnik lost game after game with dreadful mistakes, eventually finishing last, while even the tournament leaders produced few games of which they could be proud. The one bright spot for the Tour was this week’s announcement that Magnus Carlsen has accepted the wild card for the Sinquefield Cup. Despite winning almost $US250,000 last year for his GCT efforts, Carlsen had declined his invitation to participate in this year’s Tour. But the temptation of facing and beating his World Championship challenger Fabiano Caruana – again shortly before the title match, was too much to resist. (A very large appearance fee may also have been a factor.)

The US media are in a frenzy because Supreme Court judge Anthony Kennedy just announced his retirement this month, at age 81. That means the president and Congress get to choose a new judge. Thirty years ago, Ronald Reagan chose Kennedy because he was generally conservative, and particularly friendly to big business, which matters more to the rich and powerful in America than any of those social issues that the court occasionally decides. Kennedy turned out to be in favour of a woman’s right to terminate a pregnancy and everyone’s right to marry whomever they choose. Trump liked this judge for his usual reasons: money. Kennedy’s son Justin was Deutsche Bank’s global head of real estate capital markets, and according to the New York Times Deutsche became ‘Trump’s most important lender, dispensing well over $1 billion in loans to him for the renovation and construction of skyscrapers at a time other banks were wary of doing business with him because of his troubled business history’. That didn’t stop Trump suing the bank to avoid paying back a $640 million loan — that’s just how the guy does business. The important thing about Kennedy’s retirement is the timing. By leaving now he allows Trump and the Republicans to install a new judge before this November’s elections, when Democrats might win just enough Senate seats
The curent U.S. Supreme Court justices, including Anthony Kennedy who is about to retire.
to block the kind of judge that Trump is all set to nominate. There are at least 20 names on Trump’s list, but all are ‘constructionists’. Supposedly, this means they believe the court must follow the literal meaning of the Constitution. But the meanings of many clauses in the 1787 Constitution are open to wildly different interpretations. The current court, for instance, ruled that no laws can restrict how much money a corporation can spend promoting a political cause during an election because spending money is free speech and corporations have a right to free speech like people do. What Constructionist really means is ‘conservative’, and Trump will pick whatever kind of conservative he needs for re-election in 2020. For example, if he needs to jazz up the Christian right and the ‘demolish the state’ voters, he could pick Catholic conservative judge Amy Barrett, who says her Catholic values trump the Constitution’s, so abortion should be illegal, and that going back to what the Founding Fathers meant could oblige her
to support the ‘dismantling of the administrative state, and the invalidation of paper money’. If he wants to juice up his anti-Clinton voters he might pick conservative frat-boy Brett Kavanaugh who wasted millions in taxpayers’ money trying to prove in court that Bill and Hillary did some shady real estate deal on a property called Whitewater, back when Bill was prez. In many ways, this Supreme Court nomination and confirmation circus is more Trumpian distraction to allow the Great Dicktator to inflate himself even more and his backers and back-slappers to turn America back not just to the 1950s but to the good ol’ 1850s, when slaves slaved, women wept, and the masses were tired, poor huddled and yearning to breathe. And that’s another media meme going wild amongst the American commentariat these days — that there could be a second Civil War a’coming, or it’s already happening.
Back home... Meanwhile, last week in Canberra the coalition and Labor colluded to pass two
appalling laws that are basically designed to criminalise things like demonstrating in public places (streets, for example), chaining yourself to trees, or publishing things that might affect Australia’s ‘political, military or economic relations with another country’. These laws aim to unravel protesters like the Knitting Nannas — women who travel around coal seam gas sites and coal mines knitting gates shut with woolly locks and tying bulldozers up in stitches. Many of these brave crusaders for pockets before profits have been fined $500 for blocking mining trucks and such over the past decade, but these new laws could carry fines of more than $10,000. ‘Don’t worry your little heads about all this’, the Libs/ Nats and ALP pollies say, ‘these new laws will only be enforced if the minister of dissent-crushing personally gives the cops the nod’. Feeling safe now? Authoritarian acts in Canberra were, outrageously, not the big news of the week. What made PM Malcolm Turnbull and the media go off like Aspros in Coke was Labor leader Bill Shorten declaring that his party would, if elected, hike the corporate tax rate for businesses grossing $10-to-$50 million a year back to the level it was before Turnbull & Co slashed them as an early election present. The problem for Bill was that he hadn’t yet convinced the rest of the Labor team that this tax-raising of a cuttax was going to win them lots of votes, so he had to eat crow and re-cut that tax.

‘Doctor homeless’ comes out of the forest Story & photo Robin Osborne
The road to homelessness can begin with various factors, including childhood neglect and abuse, poor education, rental unaffordability and ill health – physical or mental. Gregory Smith knows this all too well, having grown up in a dysfunctional and violent family, been abused in a Catholic orphanage, at high school, juvenile detention centres and eventually jails, and becoming homeless for years. Dr Smith, as the PhD graduate from Southern Cross University (SCU) is now known, has become a fundraising ambassador for St Vincent de Paul Society’s homeless drop-in centre in Tweed Heads. The only such facility in the area, Fred’s Place runs a ‘no questions asked’ service providing meals, showers, laundry, phone/internet, medical care, legal advice and referrals to around 80 people who arrive each day. On Thursday August 30 a community sleep-out will be held in the parkland at the rear of Seagulls Club, one of the Tweed clubs supporting the service. Vinnies executive officer Michael Timbrell said, ‘The last census recorded more than 500 homeless people in the Tweed-Byron area, which we believe is an underestimate. Many people sleeping in cars, couch surfing, or living in low-cost caravan parks and boarding houses may not describe themselves as truly homeless’. Gregory Smith was homeless for more than a decade, much of it in a makeshift camp in the Mullumbimby hinterland, a journey that started with violent parents who said he’d never make anything of himself.
Gregory Smith, who was homeless for more than a decade before university and eventually completing a doctorate, with his new book Out of the Forest.
Whatever self-confidence was left took a further tumble when, as a ward of the state, he received a psychiatric diagnosis of being a sociopath. After youthful runaways and recaptures (and beatings) by police, Gregory took to the road, finding itinerant work, abusing alcohol and drugs, provoking fights, failing in relationships. Mostly he managed to stay one step ahead of the law. In 1989, sick of the urban life that offered nothing but anguish, he went bush, spending the next ten years living in isolation in a rainforest camp where he slept on beds of leaves, caught and cooked wildlife – bats, lizards, snakes, even earthworms – before going vegetarian. He continued to numb himself with home-grown cannabis, homemade beer and local gold-top mushrooms. On occasional walking
trips to town Gregory would hang out in Byron Bay and Mullumbimby parks, trade dope, and return home with such essentials as rice, cask wine, Tally-Ho papers and The Byron Shire Echo, valued for practical reasons rather than its journalism. ‘I painstakingly swaddled the matches in strips torn from The Echo and then wrapped the bundle in a piece of cloth,’ he recounts in his new memoir Out of the Forest (co-authored with journalist Craig Henderson). The extraordinary tale is attracting attention from around the world. ‘Later on I’d use The Echo to store perishable food, marijuana, magic mushrooms or anything else I wanted to keep for more than a day or two.’ Gregory spent ten years as a forest recluse, enjoying ‘the steep, green farmland of
lushly carpeted fields… skirted by neat crops of sugarcane and rambling rainforests.’ He emerged after an encounter with what he can only call ‘aliens’ who came for him when he was ‘in a pretty bad way’. Down at Tweed Hospital he weighed in at just 41kg and ‘my mental state was frightfully feeble’. Later, he enrolled in a computer program at TAFE Kingscliff, did a tertiary preparation course, followed by a degree in Social Sciences at SCU and later a doctorate on the later-life experiences of children who had been placed in out-of-home care before 1974. ‘My central finding was that the majority of care leavers had significant difficulties in developing relationships in their families, in their communities and in society more broadly,’ he writes. Dr Smith has been formally diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, severe depression and social anxiety. His consulting psychologist says is it likely that he has had these problems since childhood. ‘We need so many more services to help homeless people recover their dignity, and much more investment in early interventions like affordable housing, health care, and education,’ he said. ‘Imagine if the $7 billion to be spent on those defence drones was put into preventing people falling through society’s cracks.’ Dr Gregory Smith will participate in panels at the Byron Writers Festival on Fri 3 August 10am and Sat 4 Aug 12.15pm. St Vincent de Paul Society’s community sleep-out for Fred’s Place homeless service is on Thurs 30 August. Details at www.fredsplacecommunitysleepout.org.au.

Imprisoned for 440 days in an Egyptian jail When Peter Greste was arrested in Egypt, his family were shocked but not panicked. Peter had been a foreign correspondent for two decades in numerous dangerous countries, and been detained before. He was only in Egypt on temporary assignment – how much trouble could he be in? A lot, it quickly became clear. Peter was put into solitary confinement, then charged with threatening national security. No evidence was ever produced, but after a sham trial he was given a seven-year sentence. Peter’s family, meanwhile, were working to free him. Rather than wait on official channels, the Grestes were soon running an international media campaign, and for the 400 days Peter spent in prison his plight was seldom out of the headlines. The process was by no means plain sailing, nor was there always agreement, but the Grestes were galvanised rather than paralysed by the crisis. In their book Freeing Peter each of the Grestes writes frankly and movingly about how they pulled together as
international correspondent for SBS Chris Hammer.
a family, and the times they didn’t. About the daily uncertainty, the paucity of information, the strain of decision making, the emotional visits to the prison, the incomprehensible Egyptian legal system, and the overwhelming support from every level of Australian society. Peter superbly depicts the effects of incarceration on his state of mind, and his battle not to construct a mental prison within the physical one. At Byron Writers Festival you can hear Peter Greste in a session called Foreign Correspondents with Chris Hammer who, as a roving in-

ternational correspondent for SBS TV’s Dateline program reporting from more than 30 countries across six continents, and author Debbie Whitmont, the ABC’s former Middle East correspondent. On Saturday 4 August you can catch Greste in the session Weapons of War: No Holds Barred with The Saturday Paper’s chief political cor-
respondent Karen Middleton and former theologian from the US Sarah Sentilles, whose book Draw Your Weapons tells the true stories of both a conscientious objector during World War II and a former prison guard at Abu Ghraib. Peter Greste will also feature in a satellite event at the Byron at Byron on Friday 3 August.

The Girl with Seven Names
Danger Music: Hong Kong to Kabul
As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee was one of millions trapped by a secretive and brutal regime. Her home on the border with China gave her some exposure to the world beyond the confines of the Hermit Kingdom and, as the famine of the 1990s struck, she began to wonder, question and to realise that she had been brainwashed her entire life. Given the repression, poverty and starvation she witnessed, surely her country could not be, as she had been told “the best on the planet”?
Eddie Ayres learnt the viola as a child in England, studied in Berlin and London before playing the viola for eight years with the Hong Kong Philharmonic. As Emma Ayres, she moved from Hong Kong to Australia to present a longrunning and extremely popular radio program on ABC Classic FM, while teaching music privately and professionally. When Emma hung up her headphones at the end of 2014, there was a public outpouring of emotion. This tattooed, intelligent, warm and witty woman had made her way into the hearts of many Australians.
Escape Aged seventeen, she decided to escape North Korea. She could not have imagined that it would be twelve years before she was reunited with her family. She could not return, since rumours of her escape were spreading, and she and her family could incur the punishments of the government authorities – involving imprisonment, torture, and possible public execution. Hyeonseo instead remained in China and rapidly learned Chinese in an effort
to adapt and survive. Twelve years and two lifetimes later, she would return to the North Korean border in a daring mission to spirit her mother and brother to South Korea, on one of the most arduous, costly and dangerous journeys imaginable. Hyeonseo Lee tells her extraordinary story in her memoir The Girl with Seven Names that has become a global bestseller. She will be at Byron Writers Festival in conversation with Jane Hutcheon on Friday 3 August and will take part in the session Memoir:

Too much to lose Making a Place for Myself on Saturday 4 August with Saudi women’s rights activist Manal al Sharif and Egyptian-born Anne Aly, who is Australia’s first female federal parliamentarian of Muslim faith.
What the devoted audience didn’t see, however, was Emma’s daily struggle to live within her woman’s body. For 16 years, she knew that she was transgender but to take
any action seemed impossible. Emma believed there was too much to lose – family, friends and her career. In 2016, Emma accepted a position teaching cello, viola and double bass to Afghanistan’s children at the world-renowned Afghanistan National Institute of Music. Amid the chaos and unpredictability of life in war-
savaged Kabul, Emma realised she had to accept her future and returned to Australia to begin transitioning from female to male. In 2016, Emma became Eddie. ‘When I realised I was transgender, it was a life-destroying moment: I knew from then on that I would never be happy until I did something about it. But to do something about it meant possibly losing everything. It turned out that I lost everything because I didn’t do anything about it.’ Catch Eddie Ayers at Byron Writers Festival in conversation with former Sydney Morning Herald music editor Bernard Zuel on Friday 3 August and in the session On the Road Again with This Restless Life author Brigid Delaney and Kari Gislason, who wrote The Promise of Iceland and co-authored Saga Land with Richard Fidler.

Inspiration, and mescal, from Mexico By S Haslam Fresh from a stint working up in Brisbane, former executive chef of Coyotito, Evan White, together with partner Amelia, is set to create a real coastal Mexican taqueira in beachside Suffolk Park, and hey, he’d like to cook for some real locals, not just tourists! ‘Most of my inspiration comes from living in Mexico, although I worked in some highend restaurants in Europe, but in fact it’s the street food that’s really king there,’ says Evan. ‘It’s the abuela-run hole in the wall places and the food from the marketplace, the mercado, that really inspired me. ‘Byron, which attracts visitors just like coastal Oaxaca, became our focus because I found Byron’s Picone Exotics sold the produce I was using in Mexico that I hadn’t found in Brisbane. Plus, the seafood I bought in Brisbane came from here, so we’ve moved closer to the source, so we can serve food directly from the producer as you do in Mexico’. Expect slow ‘fast food’, with real earthy corn tortillas made inhouse daily, tacos al pastor with grilled pineapple, daily changing ceviche Mexicana, esquites (off-the-cob corn grilled and slathered with condiments), sharing plates from the asado (pollo, pulpo, pescado), and Cochinita pibil (slow-cooked pork, sour orange, coriander, lime, pickled onion). ‘We’d like to achieve a community focus, the family-friendly local vibe. It’s not such a touristy market in beachside Suffolk and there’s consequently a greater appreciation of the local market food. You can actually buy meat directly from the farmer here, and the farmers markets sell interesting products you can’t buy everywhere (unlike Brisbane where almost everything is sold through Rocklea). Here it’s economical, fun and you’re certain of your food’s provenance. There’s also a very quick turnaround from the earth to the plate that you don’t get from the big markets. We’ll be serving up a couple of different types of ceviche; it really has to be fresh,’ says Evan. ‘We just spent a couple of weeks over in Mexico, going up into the mountains in the region of Minas where they produce small-batch artisanal mescal. We have brought a range of them back with us that you can’t purchase anywhere else in Australia. ‘We will have a great range of tequilas, but we will be showcasing mescal; it has a great smokiness. It’s soft enough so that it showcases the agaves, with a lot of softer notes; it is a refined drink that gives you a lot more to think about; the sort of agave, and the region, and the roasting. ‘We saw the harvesting of agaves that were more than 30 years old, and the products often have an earthy flavour, some with herbal notes, some that are quite floral. No two mescals are necessarily similar. ‘People are peering in through the windows, and there’s a lot of excitement. I don’t think people will be unimpressed when we open this week,’ says Evan.

It’s ‘Go Go Go’ from The Apollo Jonathan Barthelmess, owner and chef of popular and exciting Sydney restaurant The Apollo, is heading north to join forces with Matthew Kemp, executive chef, The Byron at Byron for a Mediterranean-inspired rustic culinary collaboration. The extravagant four-course Greek sharestyle feast on Friday 10 August will see Barthelmess and Kemp using the most delicious produce the northern rivers has to offer. Renowned Apollo dishes on the menu include the Taramasalata Mullet Roe Dip, Grilled Octopus and White Chocolate Poached Rhubarb Honeycomb. The spectacular Greek Roast Lamb will be served with mulled wine, allowing guests to indulge in the backdrop of the subtropical rainforest. Matching wines will be provided by St Hugo, with a St Hugo wine specialist in attendance to take guests on an exquisite wine journey over the course of the evening. The St Hugo Riesling V18 and St Hugo Shiraz V15 will be served throughout the evening. Barthelmess is one of Australia’s most exciting chefs. He was greatly influenced by his mentors Stefano Manfredi and Janni Kyritsis, both masters of Mediterranean cooking in Australia. Now in its seventh year, The Apollo continues to excite the Sydney dining scene and was named ‘one of the world’s most exciting places to eat’ by renowned restaurant critic Terry Durack. In 2016 Barthelmess opened The Apollo in the bustling heart of Tokyo and he is currently planning to open a restaurant later this year in his hometown, under the Story Bridge on the edge of the Brisbane River. Earlier this year, The Byron at Byron underwent a six-week transformation of the resort restaurant, bar and central facilities in partnership with interior designers Luchetti Krelle and appointed acclaimed chef Matthew Kemp to lead the kitchen team.

A Tasty Sunday of Fun! Story and photos by Terase Davidson
Sunday saw the Ballina Food & Wine Festival celebrate its ninth year of bringing the community together to enjoy a day of epic food, wine, beer and live music. This hugely popular local event is entirely run by volunteers from the Ballina Rotary Club, with lots of food-loving locals and plenty of local restaurant teams carving the festival day out in their diaries well in advance to get involved in the good times. Okay… so let’s talk about the food! Dave and I managed to hook into a mountain of food throughout the festival with some of the many highlights coming from the crew at Junk Yard Barbecue with their slow-cooked chicken wings. The wings, smothered lovingly with their housemade secret weapon sauce, are totally awesome on their own… or you can turn up the flavour volume as we did even more by adding a generous drizzle of El Gringo chilli sauce from the The Chile Banditos crew (these guys also do some beautifully balanced BUT nuclear chile sauces for those that are game enough to take it up several levels of mind altering heat!). And what better way to toast the end of a monster event than with a locally brewed Stone & Wood Pacific Ale paired with Oysters and Duck-Fat Fries from the oyster-obsessed team at Balcony Bar & Oyster Co, while watching the old-school guitar and Above: The Chile Banditos vocal talent of Diesel, closing the event in style holding festival Below left: oysters and chips goers in the palm of his musically gift hands.

That means now may be a good time to reassess your investment strategies and refinance requirements.

Clover Hill House now sits on 2379sqm with westerly views across Bangalow village. Sadly, Alice Holm who owned the home died recently. She was in her 90s at the time of her death and had lived in the house for 40 years.

JULIAN BURNSIDE TALKS BORDER POLITICS WHILE INNUMERABLE MEN, WOMEN AND CHILDREN FLEE THEIR HOMES, WE WATCH WORLD LEADERS JOCKEY FOR AIR TIME ON THE SUBJECT OF REFUGEES AND ASYLUM SEEKERS. From Obama’s ‘We all have to do better as leaders in tamping down rather than encouraging the notion of identity that leads us to diminish others,’ to Trump’s ‘One hundred and ten thousand refugees in just a single year and we have no idea where they come from folks – this could be the great Trojan horse, and I don’t wanna be known in 200 years for having created the Trojan Horse with a different name,’ and from former Australian immigration minister Scott Morrison, ‘You have sought to illegally enter Australia by boat. If you have a valid claim, you will not be settled in Australia. You will never live in Australia, to asylum seekers detained on Manus Island sewing their lips together – we just can’t close our eyes to this any more and hope it goes away. ‘ Refugees have the right to a safe haven yet many of those who have the power to make that happen are putting their energy into creating xenophobia rather than extending a helping hand. A new film Border Politics follows human rights barrister Julian Burnside as he traverses the planet examining the harsh treatment meted out to refugees by most western democracies. Produced and directed by filmmaker Judy Rymer, this contemporary story is about the threat to human rights, the loss of democratic values, and our increasingly heartless treatment of ‘the other’. Eve Jeffery caught up with Julian Burnside last week as he prepares to bring the film to the Brunswick Picture House on 15 July.
Border Politics is a huge undertaking. Why? Because the way any country treats the most vulnerable goes toward defining the country’s character. Why are Australians so frightened of refugees? Good question. I think it is because dishonest politicians are doing what they can to inflame Islamophobia and vilify asylum seekers as ‘illegal’ (which is false, and most politicians know it’s false). We see bloodied Syrians on the news then we switch over to the latest reality cooking show. How has this disconnection arisen? Because our generation has never experienced anything like it: we simply can’t identify with the victims. How responsible are the media for refugee outcomes? The Murdoch press deserves a large share of the blame: they repeat the lies of the politicians without comment. But they know the facts. Are we turning into America in as much as we are being groomed to believe we are superior humans, therefore entitled? I don’t think so. But we are turning into America in our willingness to believe anything our political ‘leaders’ say. On your travels who was the leader or expert who impressed you the most? Nicola Sturgeon (first minister of Scotland) and Angela Merkel (chancellor of Germany).
If governments are taken out of the equation, do you feel communities worldwide would support refugees?
started me thinking that, whatever they say, politicians are not much interested in justice or common decency.
If they knew the facts, yes. In my opinion, most people in the West are better than the politicians who lead them.
Do you still have faith in the law as an instrument of good and not evil? If enough lawyers are willing to stand against injustice, yes. And there are more lawyers doing that than you would realise.
Is Donald Trump the worst fascist in history? No. Hitler was worse, and I think Putin is a fascist these days and is worse than Trump. But it’s a near-run thing, especially now that Trump has urged scrapping the need for due process in asylum claims. Do you think the average Australian mums and dads have open arms? Yes, without doubt. When my wife Kate set up SpareRooms For Refugees in 2001, urging ordinary Australians to offer free accommodation for refugees in their homes, the response was immediate and overwhelmingly positive. How will Australia be viewed in the future on this issue? I expect that in 20 or 30 years there will be a royal commission into our treatment of boat people from 2001 on. I think Australia will look back and condemn the politicians most responsible for it: Howard, Ruddock, Rudd, Abbott, Morrison, Turnbull, Dutton… but they will all be safely dead by then. How has your work in this area changed you? It has put me in touch with the reality that law and justice are different things. And it has
How can the law help us move forward on this issue? The relevant parts of the law need to be completely overhauled. That said, the legal system in Australia works well: Australian lawyers are competent and hard working; Australian judges are honest and diligent. Legal education is well designed and thorough. Most lawyers are concerned about injustices in the system; many more lawyers do pro bono work than the public realise. Despite its bleak reputation the legal profession is, by and large, competent and well motivated. How do we do a 180 and become heroes? Overhaul the laws relating to asylum. If I had any say in it, first of all I would close down offshore detention, which I regard as a grotesquely expensive, cruel, absolutely awful system. I would accept that boats will start coming again, arriving with people seeking safety. And when those people arrive, I would say okay, put them into detention initially but limit that detention to one month and use that month for security and health checks. At the end of a month, I would say, release them into
the community on a visa until their refugee status is finally determined – the visa has four principle conditions. One is that they must stay in touch with the department. The second: they are allowed to work. They have full access to Medicare and Centrelink benefits. And until their refugee status is decided, they must live in a specified rural or regional town. Now that would mean that we are no longer harming them while we are protecting them and keeping them safe. A film like this may just ‘play to the choir’. What is the plan to lift it out of the silo? Encourage people to see the film: and maybe Trump’s abusive policies will wake people to the problem. It’s in our interest to be concerned. Remember what Pastor Martin Niemoller said: ‘When they came for the Communists I said nothing, because I am not a Communist. When they came for the trade unionists I said nothing, because I am not a trade unionist. When they came for the Jews I said nothing, because I am not a Jew. And when they came for me There was no-one to speak for me.’ If we don’t wake up soon, we will ALL be in trouble. Julian Burnside and Judy Rymer will screen their film Border Politics with a live Q&A at the Brunswick Heads Picture House on Sunday July 15 at 5pm. Tickets are Adult $18 | Concession $18 | Child (U15) $12

WHO WOULD YOU RATHER
S O A P - B OX
I think about sex a lot. Being a woman that’s supposed to be unusual. It’s supposed to be men who think about sex. There’s a statistic that says men think about sex every seven seconds. Thats about 8,000 times a day. That’s not actually backed up with any research. We all know the real figures are more like every two seconds. Even though the age-old stereotype is that men are oversexed and women are pretty well frigid in comparison, it’s clearly not valid to compare people’s sexual thinking based on gender alone. In a recent study on sexually oriented thoughts it was found that men’s and women’s sexual thinking was expectedly variable from individual to individual and in men it ranged from one to 388 times a day and in women from one to 140 times a day. That meant that the average number of sexual thoughts for men every day was 34.2 and for women it was 18.6. Pretty well the same amount of thoughts allocated for food and sleep. Eating, sleeping, and Fucking. That’s what we’re here for. I also think about cushions. Eating fucking and sleeping. On cushions. I wonder what actually constitutes sexual thinking. When I say I think about sex it’s not really always strictly sexual – in a lust-filled desirous way. It’s very often strange pornographic musings that my brain performs for my private amusement. Like the way you doodle on paper when you’re distracted. Except, well I can draw a doodle without a biro. It’s curious, and kind of random. And I’m sorry, its’ not consensual. I haven’t asked you if you mind being the subject of my subconscious seduction. It’s very useful. It can make people who are intimidating seem a lot less so. Like when I got pulled up for speeding recently. As the cop walked towards the car I imagined him with his wife and her saying, ‘slow down slow down… is there any reason you’re going so fast?! Use cruise control, you idiot!’ His hairy humping body collapses in a heap. I imagine what his orgasm face looks like. What sound he makes. I imagine him sweaty and red with his face screwed up. I might lose a few points but not as many as him! It’s the evolution of the technique someone once gave me for dealing with onstage nerves. ‘Just imagine everyone naked,’ they said. Well I did that. And then the naked people got busy. When you have an imagination like mine you don’t need pornography. Porn is never as bizarre, erotic and unexpected as what pops up in my head. Although sometimes it’s disturbing and I wish I could get it out. Like when I imagined Malcolm Turnbull in a gimp suit. Or Barnaby with his Akubra on and the classic strip song playing You can leave your hat on… One of my friends and I have even made our inappropriate sexual thinking into a game. It’s an adult game for long car trips. Kind of like I Spy, but it’s really I Root. Or more precisely, if you had to choose between two people you don’t like whom would you choose? We don’t call it that. That would be tacky. It’s called ‘Who Would You Rather?’ What we do is cast two people we don’t want to have sex with and then we have to realistically choose one. I don’t know why we have to, it’s just a game of choice, like if these were the last two people on the planet. And it’s not just hetero. You can cast anyone. That’s the fun part of the game. You want to come up with the most unfuckable (well to you) people you can think of. Like Who Would You Rather… Prince Charles or Clive Palmer? Pauline Hanson or John Laws? Donald Trump or Kim Jong-un? It’s impossible to choose. It’s the lesser of two evils. Suddenly I imagine Donald lying on his tummy on a black satin doona covered in a soft orange fuzz. His toupee sits in a glass by the bed… he’s wearing a nappy. He’s an adult baby. Kim’s only wearing his coat. It falls open. He’s got a tiny, tiny missile. So has Donald. Oh this is tough. Then I think of poor beautiful Melania. She’s been playing this game for 13 years now. So I choose Kim. He’s disappointed. He chose Melania.
THANDO AT BELLO ZIMBABWE-BORN SONGSTRESS THANDO HAS BEEN GRACING STAGES AROUND AUSTRALIA WITH HER ELECTRIC PRESENCE AND POWERHOUSE VOCAL.
Thando grew up feasting on the musical offerings of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, Queen, and TLC. Along the way, she found Jill Scott and crafted her genre-bending sound with an electric live set. With the highly anticipated release of her brand-new single Numb, this multidimensional performer is looking toward solidifying her status as Melbourne’s newest first lady of R&B, and her show at Bello Winter Music. We swapped emails last week and chatted up a storm… How would you describe your music? Emotion-driven R&B with a touch of electronica. What’s your earliest memory of being inspired by a music? Can you remember a song or the situation? Watching Freddie Mercury with Queen live at Wembley on VHS. I fell in love and wanted to be a performer ever since. Are you a classically trained pianist? Where did you learn and how did you come to be learning the piano? Na, not classically trained. I learned how to play from those Alfred basics then taught myself the rest I needed to know. I use the keys to write my music, but you’ll so seldom see me playing keys live; I prefer to be at the front connecting with my audience in the best way I know how. Your new track Numb has much more of an electro element to it. What do you think has inspired this shift in your sound? I’ve always wanted to have a more electronic feel to my music and because I hadn’t released anything in a couple of years I thought it was the best time to try to see what people would think. You’ll be hearing a lot more of it in future.
THIS WEE K
How did your collaborations with Remi begin? Where do you see it taking you both? We’ve always known the same people but we hadn’t ever spoken about collaborating. When I finished Numb and it was ready to go, I messaged him on a whim over Facebook and asked if he’d jump on board (not thinking he’d say yes) and he was all over it. Within a week, we had a new version of the song, had to shoot a new video (the original one may pop up, who knows), and it’s kind of blown up. Since then I did a feature on his song My People, and Sensible J and Rem are going to be helping with my album so it’s established a great working relationship. Whats coming up for Thando? Where would you like 2018 to take you? This year my focus was playing some interstate shows and festivals, so I’ve got some exciting announcements coming up. I have a new single that is so close to finished and have started recording music for a new project that I’m really excited about. Summer is going to be full of new music so stay tuned! What can people expect from you at Bello Winter Music? Well I’m bringing my whole band, so it’ll be a huge sound. Two beautiful backing singers so expect three times the sass, a grooving rhythm section and a badass synth lord. Fun for the whole family during the day, and a lot more adult at night. Can’t wait! 12–15 July | www.bellowintermusic.com

YOU AM I
A MARRIAGE OF FLAVOUR AND SQUELCH
WHO ARE YOU AM I?
Tijuana Cartel are nationally loved for their east-meets-west, fat, bass-fuelled electronica. A truly unique act that have been mesmerising their ever-growing audience for well over a decade, they continue to set an exceptionally high standard in both live performance and sound production. From Tijuana Cartel’s special vinyl edition EP Ishtar’s Descent, the second single Sophia is the impetus for their current tour The Sophia tour kicked off on 28 March and will continue through until August with a huge closing show at iconic venue The Landsdowne in Sydney. Sophia features Paul George’s signature soul-stirring guitar work, overlaying a stomping four-to-the-floor rhythm with a deep, driving quality. In some ways it’s a strong throwback to the sound that established Tijuana Cartel as a nationally acclaimed electronic act. Their marriage of world flavours and squelchy electronica has since formed a movement all of its own, and this track encapsulates the sound of that movement precisely. Catch the Cartel at The Northern on Friday from 9pm – Tijuana Cartel.
You Am I are without doubt one of Australia’s all-time essential rock’n’roll bands.

Featuring guitarist and vocalist Tim Rogers along with bandmates Russell Hopkinson on drums, Andy Kent on bass, and (since 1999) Davey Lane on guitar, You Am I have released ten studio albums to date. Their last studio album was the 2015 critically acclaimed Porridge & Hot Sauce. The band have won a total of ten ARIA Awards including Album of the Year, Best Group, and Best Independent Release. This is proving to be an awesome tour – don’t miss it. Byron Brewery | Sunday 8 July, from 7pm Tix: www.tickets.oztix.com.au

WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE FESTIVAL
APPARENTLY WE ALL DO IT
BECAUSE OF HER…
The Loveys – four women telling it like it is – are heroic, humorous and hip! Stylish, yet down to earth, opinionated yet full of love, playing original songs, with big, beautiful vocal harmonies, accompanied by keyboard, ukuleles, bass guitar, drums and featuring the bassoon. The audience is right at home with the cabaret-style humour of The Loveys. Original songs slip past their too-red lips and overstated eyewear, their gentrified hats, and put greatgrandma’s Royal Doulton to a new, unintended use as the china tinkers out a syncopated funk. Brunswick Picture House | Thursday 5 July | 7pm | $15-20
We’re All going To Die is coming to Byron Bay this week after selling out across Sydney and New Zealand. Byron local Stefan Hunt has decided it’s the Shire’s turn to soak up the incredible message – fear less, live more, because we’re all going to die anyway right?
The Arakwal Corporation, Flickerfest & iQ Inc are thrilled to present an inspiring evening of Aboriginal storytelling celebrating NAIDOC Week 2018 and this year’s theme Because of Her, We Can showcasing the lives and impact of Aboriginal women.
The three-day mini-festival deals with themes around fear through the lens of our inevitable death. This multimedia festival of art, film, photography and immersive experiences, created by local and international artists, will spring up all over Byron across Studio Tropico, Pighouse Flicks, the Solar Train, Beach Hotel, Service Denim and the Byron Scout Hall. Don’t be fooled by the taboo name though; think of this event as an amusement park for your soul.
This year’s program curated from Flickerfest favourites will take you on a special journey with some incredibly funny, powerful and strong Aboriginal women whose uplifting stories will inspire and delight.

You’ve got to get yourself Back to the Garden – the theme for July’s Stories in the Club.

Well-known local singer/songwriter and storyteller Cass Curran will open the afternoon with some ballads about gardens, including her rendition of Woodstock. The day will feature Dr Philip McLaren, Jacquelina Wills, Stephen Nugent and Greer Dokmanovic. Curator of the event Jenni Cargill-Strong will also tell a story.

BY JOHNCCAMPBELL OMMUNICATION
BY JOHN CAMPBELL
ADRIFT ‘It’s amazing, isn’t it, what people are capable of when their life is on the line.’ My companion took the words out of my mouth as we were leaving the cinema after seeing this harrowing but inspiring true story (and which is not to say that either of us could possibly have coped in similar circumstances). It’s 1983, and California girl Tami Oldham (Shailene Woodley) arrives in Tahiti in her cut-down jeans and T, a backpack and a footloose attitude. She meets Richard (Sam Claflin), a tall dark and handsome English yachtsman, and in a trice they are an item, swimming and fondling in forest lagoons and kissing in the lapping waters of the tropical Pacific before agreeing to sail a boat back to San Diego for friends of Richard. Disaster strikes
when they are caught up in a cyclone that leaves the vessel smashed but still afloat. This is when the story opens, before proceeding to be told through flashbacks – there is no other way to maintain interest in two people floating alone on the ocean without breaking up their ordeal with back story, old hat though it might be. Icelandic director Baltasar Kormákur is no novice when dealing with the briny, having made The Sea (2002) and The Deep (2012), so you you know you can rely on him to not fall back on clichéd shots of a shark circling Tami’s slender legs at every opportunity – there is much more to it than that. The surprise – not least of all concerning Richard’s gangrenous black foot – doesn’t come until the end, when what
was really going on during the fortyone days of the yacht floating powerless on the wine-dark sea is revealed. A drama that explores how we cope with psychological as well as physical and emotional stress (not unlike last year’s The Mercy, it is held together by Woodley’s sunburnt, salt-blasted grittiness and the cinematography of multiple Oscar winner Robert Richardson. Visually stunning, the storm at sea, if experienced a bit late, is terrifying.
SICARIO: DAY OF THE SOLDADO The image of blood splattered on a windscreen after a bloke’s brains have been blown out by gunfire is now de rigueur in movies of ‘gritty realism’ (for good measure, it’s featured twice in this). To give them their due, the chaps in the art department make an excellent job of it, too, but why do we flock to cinemas in such numbers to witness such slaughter and mayhem? Have we become desensitised by it? Or at heart are we just savages? The opening shot of what is a festival of violence has four suicide bombers annihilate shoppers
in an American supermarket. In a screenplay that is more than just a little convoluted, federal agent Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) determines that their action is attributable to the Mexican cartels’ involvement in smuggling people across the US border. His response is to go in mob-handed and heavily armed, crossing the border and running amok. It’s not clear at times who the bad guys are, but we do know for sure that the charismatic Benicio Del Toro is not one of them – his character, Alejandro, saw his family wiped out in the prequel and

we all want him to take his revenge on the warlord responsible. He might easily savour that cold dish when the warlord’s daughter, Isabel (Isabela Moner) is abducted, but he is too decent a fellow to do that and, in any case, she is meant to be a pawn in Graver’s plan to get the Mexican factions fighting among themselves. The eponymous hitman (sicario is the Spanish word for it) is Miguel (Elijah Rodriguez), a boy being trained for the job by one of the people smugglers. His initiation, in which he shoots somebody in the head at point blank range, might ordinarily be a scene to shock the viewer, but so much wanton killing has preceded it that it’s hard to react with more than ‘meh’. As the token woman, Christine Keener turns up as the toughtalking government official who tries to keep a rein on Graver. I enjoyed it heaps.
AND LOVE PLANETS MERCURY AND VENUS IN THE SIGN OF PERSONAL PAGEANTRY ADD JAZZ AND PIZZAZZ TO THIS WINTER WEEK…
ARIES: With healing Chiron making its once-in-a-lifetime visit to Aries, problems you could never get on top of can suddenly vanish in flash. Truth is, you’ve been working on them for years and now the results are coming through. Cause for celebration, especially with Mercury and Venus in the sign of raising a toast… . TAURUS: Venus your galactic guide in glamorous Leo gravitates towards things bright and beautiful, so this week’s primo for spending time and dollars on your personal presentation. And with wild-style Uranus just arrived in your sign, that might be with considerably more daring flair than usual, so go on: surprise us. GEMINI: An improvement-oriented, back-to-the-drawingboard approach suits this week best: reconnecting dots that will fire new neurons of understanding, and collaging information bytes together into a new design format. Though don’t expect ideas to take flight immediately. Be patient – you can’t build that highrise on shifting sands. CANCER: : The Cancer clan are happiest in their home zone, so even if you’re birthdaying out and about on the town, this week’s happiest and most productive times will be at Crab Casa with old friends who feel like family – or new tribe members. You’ll spend more than you intended but really, who cares. LEO: Events aren’t working against you, but are you working against them? Mars and Venus both in fixed signs – one of them yours – could solidify a standoff with neither side willing to give way. Mercury/Venus in Leo ensures you make what you say sweet to the ear, so why not play the charm card? VIRGO: With communicator Mercury in the sign of grand and expansive, don’t be surprised by over-enthusiastic reactions, exaggerated versions of events or highly inflated quotes for services. This week the ancient Zen wisdom applies: Through all the marvellous days of times to come, refuse the delusions of people. Get second opinions and estimates.
LIBRA: As networking Mercury joins your personal pleasure planet Venus in the colourful, affectionate, party-loving sign of the Lion your friend circle expands, creative collaborations brew and a professional windfall could come through. You won’t even have to travel far, with so much happening in your own backyard and local community. SCORPIO: The current bunch of fixed-sign energies plus retro Mars in your base of operations could heat up affairs in the home or office kitchen to bicker and squabble settings. If you’re having domestic dramas or arguments at work SAGITTARIUS: This advice applies to everyone during Mars retrograde, and if enough Sagittarians read it word gets around… Before launching into that perfectly justified dummy spit, try using the acronym THINK: T is it true? H is it helpful? I inspiring? N necessary? K kind? By then you’ll have cooled down enough to communicate calmly. CAPRICORN: Been hard at work with Saturnian determination? Congratulations. Just know that Mars retrograde, continuing for the next few weeks, isn’t a good time to start things. The cosmic disciplinemeister’s rewarding all your hard yards with some downtime in maintenance mode, so switch to cruise control and let the party planets set this week’s pace. AQUARIUS: During retrograde periods when life doesn’t run according to plan, people get irritated and impatient. With retro Mars in your sign, Aquarians are extra susceptible but hey, isn’t it a fabulous chance to upgrade your anger-management skills? A firm tug on the emergency brake will help voice this week’s displeasure discreetly. PISCES: Planetary push in the sign of self-promotion suggests time spent on talking up current projects could hit paydirt this week. Since you’ll probably be doing a lot of this from home, freshen up the domestic setting with flowers, do some feng shui rearranging to get the energy humming and you’ll be even more effective.

Very friendly, undemanding, and good mixers even with dogs. How excited they will be when…!! All cats are desexed, vaccinated and microchipped.

Byron Beez runners up to Lismore in Sunshine Cup Jenny Ogle
The senior men’s Byron Beez basketball team lost the grandfinal of the Sunshine Conference playing away at Lismore last Saturday night. The Beez played some great basketball and put on a great show, but the Lismore Storm were too good, taking the win 83–65. The Beez fought their way into the final with a 76–70 win against Ballina in a very close game played the week before. The Beez last won the Sunshine Cup in its first year in 2016. Local player Riley Gollan won the Most Valuable Player award for the whole league and also made the Allstar-5 team.

U/16 girls in Tamworth this weekend for the finals of the Northern Junior League. The team played their way into the finals after a solid performance in the last round of the regular season played at Port Macquarie two weeks ago, coach Bret Madden said.
The first game against a much improved, fourthranked Lismore team was one of the most entertaining matches of the weekend. The Beez showed their toughness in matching the bigger Lismore girls and held a five-point lead coming into the final quarter.
A strong push by Lismore saw them pull back the lead and win in the final seconds by one point, 35–34. The Byron girls quickly re-grouped for their second match and came out strong against Coffs Harbour Black, winning that match comfortably. The final game of the weekend was against a tough Quirindi team who had just lost to the previously topranked Taree team by a narrow margin. The Byron girls’ rapid improvement throughout the season culminated in a very convincing 47–23. Isabella Hagan was a standout for Byron over the weekend, averaging 16 points per game and playing some very tough defence. Mia Wilson and Christie Howarth also continued to lead the way on the defence end.
Kerry wins club championship

Twenty netball teams competed in the annual all-ages carnival hosted by the Brunswick-Byron Netball Association at the Mullumbimby courts on the weekend. Teams from across five age groups came from the Tweed, Casino, Lismore as well as the Ballina and local associations. The carnival is all about giving young players a chance to play more sport, Brunswick-Byron club member Narelle Anderton said.
Representative players go away this weekend, so it is a chance for all the other regular Saturday players to get more experience playing other similar-aged players, she said. Some of the youngest players from the area in Net, Set Go development teams also get their first chance to play on hard courts with proper rules. ‘It is a great experience for them. They have a lot of new rules to deal with to play at that standard,’ she said.

Former tennis star Pat Rafter helped open the Ballina tennis club’s $305,000 extension and inclusion project last month. Improvements to the facilities included construction of disabled-access ramps and expansion of the clubhouse to incorporate a unisex disabled change room, doubling the number of male and female toilets and showers, as well as increasing the size of the change rooms. The kitchen has also been expanded and upgraded.
The improvements are designed to ensure greater use by members, locals and visitors. Member for Ballina Tamara Smith joined Pat Rafter at the official opening. ‘I am delighted to meet former world number one singles player Pat Rafter for morning tea and together officially open the extension to the Ballina Tennis Club,’ Tamara said. ‘I wish Ballina Tennis Club and its members all the best in their new facility,’ she said.
