CRITICAL THANKER

‘No market’ for Ewingsdale medical centre says local doctor Hans Lovejoy

Further to a recent decision by the Joint Regional Planning Panel (JRPP) for a $8m private medical centre on the congested Ewingsdale Road, a medical professional has told The Echo the facility is not needed and was not requested by anyone within the local medical fraternity. The comments by the local doctor, who wishes to remain anonymous, highlight how the decision may well have been made without community support or need. With almost a 100 per cent approval rate, the JRPP is an unelected panel that decides on large-scale developments instead of elected councils, and will shortly consider the contentious West Byron greenfield development. According to comments in their determination (available online), the JRPP stated that the facility was needed, yet that claim was unsupported with any evidence. The doctor said, ‘The medical centre proposal is being seen by many in the local medical community as a cynical exercise to increase the value of a piece of land adjoining a public hospital site – no more.’ ‘The proposed services are not essential, and they make no sense in that there is no market for them. The services have not been requested by any local medical entity. ‘The proposed services seek to replicate the already available and underused medical and pharmacy continued on page 2

Saddle Road suburb knocked back Plans to create a new suburb of upwards of 450 dwellings – including an affordable-housing component – on the ridge between Brunswick Heads and Mullumbimby were rejected by Council before its assessment was completed. Yet a successful amendment by mayor Simon Richardson at Thursday’s meeting invites ‘individual site proposals from within area 17 (Saddle

Road) that include a provision of at least 80 per cent affordable housing’. Following last year’s initial invitation by councillors for Shire landowners to propose their land as affordable-housing projects, Saddle Road landowner Kelvin Daly proposed the Brunswick Eco Village (BEV), located on the northern end of the precinct. Then later, a planning proposal for most of the ridgeline was

Daly later told The Echo, ‘This has come as a terrible blow to BEV and

its collaborative neighbours, as they were responding to a request from Council to submit the Planning Proposal after the creation of Area 17 and following that process, in good faith.’ ‘The request of the state government for Council to focus on completing the Residential Strategy will now mean that these offers are suspended and their potential to deliver affordable housing unclear.’

submitted (Area 17), and included a promise to allocate 20 per cent of the land to affordable-housing projects. Yet the proposal falls outside strategic planning and is resisted by other landowners who want to maintain their rural amenity.

Logging shortfall claims fraudulent, says NEFA An environmental group has accused the NSW government of ‘fraudulently claiming a shortfall in high-quality logs available from State Forests in northeast NSW’ to justify their wind back of environmental protections and intention to log old-growth forest and rainforest. North East Forest Alli-

ance (NEFA) have released a review of timber yields and modelling for northeast NSW over the past 20 years that has identified a number of serious problems with yield estimations and allocations from the region. NEFA said it will refer the matter to the auditor-general. ‘The most significant is-

Byronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rotunda to move to Apex Park The Byron Environment Centre (BEC) rotunda, located in Railway Park, will be relocated â&#x20AC;&#x201C; pending Crown Lands approval â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to Apex Park â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;until agreement is reached as to the ownership, location and management of the facility until the redevelopment work of Railway Park is completed.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The successful amendment by Cr Paul Spooner at Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting also

states, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;if approval is obtained, the costs of the relocation of the rotunda be reported to Council for identification of funding sources.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The vote by councillors (mayor Simon Richardson against) trumped the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion, which sought to confirm â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;its preference for the rotunda to be relocated to Apex Park.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; During public access BECâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

John Lazarus told the chamber that he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the rotunda to be located on the beach. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We want to be where people live their lives,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. Lazarus explained that the rotunda provided insurance for events, volunteers, sound amplification, tents, and advise the public of compliance and safety issues. Lazarus also read Arwakwal representative Delta Kayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

statement: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This park holds our ancestorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; spirit strong, with its long connectionsâ&#x20AC;Ś BEC is dear to my family.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Speaking to the amendment, Cr Spooner said the park will be shut down for six months while upgrades are undertaken. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This [amendment] allows breathing space and we can have a sensible discussion around the best location.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Further, there are already existing specialist suites in Byron and Bangalow, and excellent day-surgery facilities within 30 mins (Lis-

more and Tweed). â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The restricted hours suggested by the developer (ie closed during morning and afternoon peak/school hours) underlines the cynical nature of this proposal, as no medical business model can ever operate that way. No doctor would work in such a centre. It simply makes no financial sense.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The developers are property speculators from Melbourne and their targeting of that block of land represents a low point for the residents of Ewingsdale, whose transport difficulties will be greatly compounded, as will the transport problems generally on that already busy end of Ewingsdale Road. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In short, a cynical use of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;medical centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; play by a developer wanting to up-value his block, and get around Council.

Byron Public parking fees prompt complaints Paul Bibby

Byron Council is engaged in delicate negotiations with Byron Public School over the question of whether teachers should have to pay for parking in the streets around the school. Since the introduction of paid parking in Byron, staff at the public school have been given free permits to park, with Council waiving the $110 fee that applies to workers who come from outside the Shire (or $55 for locals). They were the only workers who were given this exemption, with Council stating that they deserved special treatment. However, at the beginning of the school year, Council declined to provide the free permits, reportedly telling Byron Public it should â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;never have been given them in the first placeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. They were told to fill out interim parking-permit applications that required teachers to pay the same $110 fee as other workers.

The sudden change brought a hail of protest from teachers and parents at the school, some of whom lashed Council with a string of angry complaints. One vexed community member wrote to The Echo arguing that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;most of the teachers at that school already sacrifice considerable driving time and car costs, not being able to live near their workâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What kind of a council does that?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; the writer asked, rhetorically. The Echo understands that following the complaints mayor Simon Richardson intervened putting a temporary freeze on the plan to get rid of the exemption for teachers. Staff are now negotiating with the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive to try to figure out a solution that both parties can bear.    Neither the school nor the Parents and Citizens association was willing to put their heads above the parapet to comment when contacted by The Echo. However, Council was not so reticent.

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

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There is an expectation in the community that Council treats all people equally when it comes to pay parking,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; a Council spokesperson said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Parking regulations apply to everyone. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Council, however, acknowledges the difficulties that arise when teachers are trying to comply with parking time limits and are supervising children. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Staff are working with the Byron Bay Public School to find a solution to these problems and no decision has been made. While this is happening, teachers and staff continue to use the free permits to park.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Aerated Floor (MAF) system uses an innovative composting technology and system tested in Australia. ‘This is really impressive stuff, with a series of pipes installed underneath the compost piles to aerate the compost to speed up the process,’ Mr Isaacson said. ‘This technology will be able to take garden waste and turn it into beautiful, rich, compost in six to eight weeks, which is half the amount of

time it would normally take,’ he said. ‘We are now able to transform approximately 3,000 tonnes of waste a year into high-quality compost. ‘The MAF produces composted mulches and soil conditioners that can be used for home gardens, agriculture, urban landscaping and land rehabilitation,’ Mr Isaacson said. The compost is available for purchase for $30/cubic metre to members of the public, farmers or businesses.

Police say they will lay 210 additional charges against a man, following an investigation into the origin of thousands of images and videos located on electronic devices seized in Bangalow last year. On November 22, 2017, officers from Tweed/Byron Police District say they conducted an inspection at the Bangalow property as part of the reporting conditions of a then-41-year-old man. Police located a laptop, an external hard drive, and various electronic storage devices allegedly containing childabuse material. The man was subsequently arrested and charged with various offences. During a further search warrant at the property the fol-

lowing day, police seized digital cameras and other items relevant to the investigation. Local detectives requested assistance from the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad, who led the investigation under Strike Force Paluma. A preliminary review of the digital files revealed thousands of videos and photographs capturing various incidents, including sexual and indecent assault, break-ins, peep and pry, filming for indecent purposes and producing child-abuse material.

52 identified Police will allege in court the man committed various offences against at least 161 victims across the Tweed

and Byron areas between 2009 and 2017. They say they have identified 52 of the victims and spoken to some of them. They are hoping to speak to more.

Specially trained The Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Squad comprises detectives who are specially trained to investigate matters against children and adults, including sexual assault, serious physical abuse, and extreme cases of neglect. Anyone with concerns about suspected child abuse or exploitation should call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page www.nsw. crimestoppers.com.au.

Good riddance Turnbull, a PM of massive wealth and ego who left office without much record of accomplishment. Remember when the Libs scoffed as Labor tore itself apart and then Abbott led us nowhere from 2013? By comparison, the excretion of Malcolm from deep within the Liberal colon was more spectacular and even dumber. This means Labor will be a shoe-in at the next election, right? Perhaps. Labor’s leader Bill Shorten consistently polls well below a chicken parmigiana as preferred PM. You would think he would have been replaced by now to ensure a solid victory. Clearly Penny Wong, Tanya Plibersek or even Anthony Albanese would be more appealing than a man who oversaw the knifing of two Labor PMs? Wrong. Former PM Rudd changed Labor’s rules so it’s now almost impossible to roll their leader. Not so for the Libs, who will probably flail around like a headless chook until the main perpetrator of this chaos – Abbott – is voted out. And while this rabble of

The walking dead frontbench and their backbench zombies.

self-serving Liberal zombies is not exactly the lineup Alan Jones wanted, it’s close enough to being hopefully the last of its type in modern history. Or is it? Here are a few profiles of the new cabinet.

God botherer PM

Prime minister Scott Morrison is widely misunderstood as being a Christian, or a person who follows the teachings of Jesus Christ. While happily clapping in his Sydney mega-rich cheesy church stadium, the planet’s poorest and most wretched languish – and die – in offshore

concentration camps he helped to expand. With bipartisan Labor support, these desolate hellscape torture islands are run by evilgovcorp and paid for by your taxpayer money. Of course, Morrison sleeps like a baby at night. What would Jesus say?

Invisible minister

Michael McCormack (Nationals leader, deputy prime minister, minister for Infrastructure and Transport). The name McCormack is hard to remember because he replaced a colourful drunken beetroot named

Barnaby. Being bereft of charisma and substance also helps in remaining obscure. Christopher Pyne (Defence minister) Whining Pyne is perhaps the most unbearable toffy-nosed privately schooled twerp in the Morrison viper nest. Pyne has such little outside real life experience that a minute of sunlight can crisp his translucent outer shell.

Coalface Ciobo

Steve Ciobo (minister for Defence Industry). Last year Ciobo overcontinued opposite

An environmental volunteer co-ordination network that supports on-ground Landcare groups to restore degraded public and private land says there has been a sharp decline in government funding. A representative of the north coast Regional Landcare Network Hannah Rice-Hayes told The Echo there has been a 64 to 80 per cent funding cut since 2015, owing to ‘changes in federal and state government funding priorities.’ She says a total of over $1.7 million has been cancelled for north coast Local Land Services (NCLLS) programs, which include: Community Capacity Support contract ($804,000), Regional Landcare Facilitator contract ($360,000) and Targeted Engagement contracts ($617,000). Rice-Hayes said, ‘The closure of these NCLLS programs at the end of the last financial year represent a 64 per cent decrease in community support that north coast Regional Landcare Network and its member networks are able to provide to the community, and in some cases the decrease has been more than 80 per cent.’

So have the cuts affected local landcare groups? Brunswick Valley Landcare (BVL) co-ordinator Alison Ratcliffe told The Echo while they lost state and federal government funding, Byron Council had been very supportive and have been supplementing costs, including shared work spaces. She said, ‘But by June next year, if the governments don’t come on board with funding local and regional co-ordinators, we could end up with nothing.’

Locally The Green And Clean Awareness Team, which are auspiced by BVL and Landcare, say they have experienced cuts. The team’s coordinator Miles Shorten said, ‘Over the last ten years, in addition to Green And Clean Awareness Team’s private and business contributors, BVL has auspiced and helped administer larger single injections of funds (around $25,000 worth of grants), which significantly helped to rehabilitate the dunes at Clarkes and Main Beaches. BVL currently gives us (and other landcare groups) $500 per year for ‘locality group funding’, which is

helpful because it can be relied on. Current lack of smaller grant opportunities ($10,000 to $15,000) is sorely missed.’ Local MLC Ben Franklin (Nationals) told The Echo, ‘It is important to note that NLP2 funding is provided by the Australian government. This is not state funding. I am advised by the minister’s office that contracts are still under negotiation with each LLS region.’ ‘The NSW government is committed to Landcare NSW and has recently provided more than $2 million over two years to Landcare NSW to develop a sustainable Landcare model.’ In reply, regional Landcare facilitator Hannah RiceHayes said, ‘Landcare receives funding support from both levels of government to varying degrees, and naturally they influence one another.’ ‘The Local Landcare Coordinators Initiative (LLCI) is a state program (partnership between Local Land Services NSW and Landcare NSW). ‘This is ongoing to the end of this financial year, and is the program that Landcare NSW are hoping to see renewed (requiring $32.5 million).’

revised walking dead cabinet Ready for the new national decree? Everyone must pledge an allegiance to coal. from previous page

turned a ban on governmentbacked loans to domestic miners last year without consulting his department. According to The Guardian, ‘The controversial decision meant the federal government could start funding coalmining projects at a time when Australia’s major banks are increasingly distancing themselves from investing in coal.’ Simon Birmingham (minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment). Birmingham moves from wrecking education to now wrecking Trade, Tourism and Investment. He’s considered a Liberal moderate, which means in real terms hard right, somewhere short of Mussolini and Franco. Kelly O’Dwyer (minister for Women, minister for Jobs and Industrial Relations).

O’Dwyer made headlines for being unable to answer Barry Cassidy’s question: ‘Was the government wrong to stall on calling a royal commission into the banks, given the appalling evidence of last week?’ The Libs constantly resisted the royal commission but were happy for the unions to be burnt on the royal commission stake. Double standards and hypocrisy may be lost on the political class, but surely not on us normal folk?

problem? The Cormanniator’s expression after being fleeced by ABC’s Emma Alberici last year was priceless. She asked him on Lateline, ‘Why the sudden obsession with keeping election promises? You didn’t keep the promise when it came to health and education. “No new taxes” was what you said before the 2013 election and you introduced the three per cent deficit repair tax. You promised no cuts to the ABC and took $44m from us. Tony Abbott promised you wouldn’t shut any Medicare locals; all of them are gone. Julie Bishop promised no cuts to foreign aid and that it would grow in line with inflation. Instead it was frozen, which represents a $6 billion real cut, then it was Tony Abbott’s paid parental leave policy that has also been abandoned.’

Farewell, Aunty ABC. Your lack of patriotic support has been duly noted.

Mitch Fifield (minister against Communications, minister against the Arts). The government’s unrelenting hostility towards anyone who doesn’t think like themselves extends of course to the national broadcaster. Fifield is no fan. Now Turnbull and his moderates are gone, will the ABC be defunded at an increased rate? Fifield is a proud member of The Institute Of Public Affairs (IPA), which is not so much a think tank but rather a training ground for far-right-wing politicians. The IPA and most of Morrsion’s cabinet hate the ABC. So will Labor restore full ABC funding under a rainbow of sparkles and unicorns…?

Philanthropic night in Bruns RMS finally set to install koala signage around Bangalow gard to Lismore Road, two koala warning signs have been ordered and are scheduled to be installed by midSeptember’. ‘An independent ecological contractor has started a monitoring program that will be in place for up to 15 years. This will help measure the effectiveness of the mitigation measures,’ she added. Ms Sparrow says the agreement to erect signage is the result of some 12 months of campaigning by Bangalow Koalas. ‘Way back in August last year, after I had to pick up a dead male just down from Slatterys Lane, I sent out an email to everyone and Simon Richardson said he would get onto it. ‘The RMS said in October it would be up before Christmas – and that never happened – so I kept chasing. ‘In March, Council chased it again. Last Friday I emailed them again to say there was still nothing. ‘Then on Sunday I picked up another road kill, which actually happened Friday night.’

Local philanthropic organisation Northern Rivers Community Foundation (NRCF) is holding its annual fundraiser at the Brunswick Picture House on Wednesday August

29 (tonight) from 6pm. Hosted by Kerry O’Brien, panellists include Billie Pleffer, writer/director of new ABC drama series Deadlock, which is shot locally. Billie

will be joined by Ken Crouch, CEO of northern rivers film & TV body Screenworks along with local up-and-coming filmmakers. For tickets visit https://bit.ly/2ofEJVL.

Mindfulness events Sept and Oct Two leading practitioners of mindfulness will be holding workshops at Temple Byron in the next two months. On September 8 and 9, Zen- and Theravada-trained Patrick Kearney will explore the nature of mindfulness and its practice, as taught by the Buddha.

He says, ‘We are not concerned with “religion” or any dogmatic beliefs, but only with the systematic exploration of the nature of human experience.’ And on October 14 and 15, meditation teacher and clinical psychologist Malcolm Huxter will present work-

shops on ‘mindfulness and serenity meditation, equanimity (centred, balanced resilience) and relationship qualities of warm friendliness, appreciation and compassion.’ Bookings and further information, contact Greg at geowens2481@gmail.com or phone 0431 747 764.

The Roads and Maritime Service (RMS) looks set to finally install koala warning signs at two hotspots near Bangalow after more than 12 months of promises and a number of koala deaths in the area. Bangalow Koalas convenor Linda Sparrow told The Echo she had received a letter from roads minister Melinda Pavey saying that signage would be placed on a stretch of Lismore Road lined with koala food trees in September.

Four deaths in two years Ms Sparrow said that in the 100-metre section of road between Dudgeons Lane and Slatterys Lane some four koalas have been killed by car strike in the past two years. The section of road is adjacent to the site of the proposed food precinct, which was withdrawn after protests including that it would have been in an area of prime koala habitat. Ms Pavey wrote, ‘With re-

Ms Pavey’s letter promising the signage arrived yesterday (Thursday, August 23). Ms Sparrow said the exact location of the signs had now been modified to take into account the group’s recent plantings of koala feed trees.

RMS ‘dropped ball’ Although not specifically mentioned in the letter, The Echo understands the RMS have also agreed for signage in another Bangalow koala hotspot on Hinterland Way, between the old Sunnycrest truck stop and the Granuaille Road exit. ‘Thank goodness for that,’ Ms Sparrow said, ‘because people fly through there’. She said during the week she’d attended to a koala trapped on a thin strip of land between Hinterland Way and Granuaille Road. In an email sighted by The Echo, a council officer says RMS regional manager John Alexander had ‘admitted RMS had dropped the ball’ on the request.

Chaos in Canberra puts Energy on the backburner again WITH the Turnbull government in crisis again this week with yet another leadership spill in play, the country seems to be at a standstill, and it seems the countries energy crisis is once again on the back burner. Just a week ago, Malcolm Turnbull’s National Energy Guarantee policy proposal was in full swing. At the start of the week Turnbull was claiming majority party support in favour of the NEG. Fast forward to Friday and the NEG is all but ashes and any certainty around a defined energy policy is dashed again, however the threat to abolish the Small Renewable Energy scheme nine years early remains a very real possibility. If the government acts on the recommendations of the ACCC to abolish the smallscale renewable energy scheme, the cost of a 5kW residential system will increase by approximately $2,750. That’s a 45 per cent increase. With all this uncertainty at play just how does that affect us right now? STC’s that how. The small-scale technology certificates that are applied to solar PV systems as a rebate to encourage more home to make the switch to solar are in a state of flux with a rapid decrease over the last week for the first time this year. Until now the STC has remained stable all year. With so much uncertainty swirling around the nation’s energy policy again, it is possible it may drop again, or even worse be abolished all together, driving up the cost of solar systems dramatically. Now is the time to take the power back, if you’re considering solar energy, now is the time to act to avoid any further price hikes and take control of your energy future. SAE Group have dropped the price on a quality Seraphim and Fronius solar systems so you can secure a quality solar system now and beat the price rise. The system comprises of a 5kW Fronius inverter and 20 x 275watt seraphim panels. The Fronius inverter is regarded as one of the best on the market, Austrian designed, the Fronius inverter is backed by a 5 year product warranty and delivers excellent monitoring capabilities should you wish to add this to your system. Complementing the Fronius inverter with Seraphim 275-watt panels, rounds out a high-quality system that is designed to withstand the harshest of Australian climates. Seraphim panels also come with a 10-year product warranty and 25-year performance warranty, one of the strongest warranties on the market at this price point. 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. From consultation, to quality installation, and after sales service, they are with you the whole way, and offer a 12-year workmanship warranty with every installation.

Teen pursues sustainable farming passion Falls Festival introduces A 17-year-old Mullumbimby Shearwater Steiner School student with a passion for sustainable farming is setting up a pasture-raised, freerange egg farm at his school. Oliver Bora says that during the past year he has been ‘working hard utilising most of my subjects to make a professional business plan, a crowdfunding video and networking skills to promote the video’. He described the support he’s received as ‘amazing’. ‘When I get my business going, from each carton sold, 50 cents will be saved to give as a head start to the next young business kid coming through my school. I want to encourage other kids to use their subjects now to get ahead,’ Oliver said.

Andrew Carter, farm manager at Shearwater Steiner School, said that ever since Oliver pitched the idea to ‘we wanted to support him entirely’. ‘Allowing students to follow their passions will help them get the most out of their

education,’ Mr Carter said. Oliver said that by developing his Oliver’s Hens business model as a school project, ‘I’ve started to see how this enterprise brings together all my subjects: business studies, design and technology, maths and English’.

‘It seems to me this kind of learning is a whole branch of education that is only just being tapped into – and holds so much potential for teaching real-world skills.’ Joel Orchard from Northern Rivers Young Farmers is very supportive and said, ‘We need more young farmers. Let’s get behind him so he can lead the way.’ Oliver also has the support of Santos Organics, The Farm Byron Bay, Department of Primary Industries, The Community Gardens Mullumbimby and a few coffee shops around Byron Shire. Oliver’s Hen’s crowdfunding video is being launched via Pozible. For more info visit www.pozible.com/project/olivers-hens.

patron safety initiative Organisers of Falls Festival, held at the North Byron Parklands in Yelgun, say they will be introducing sexual assault counsellors to all sites. Assisting alongside onsite medical teams and police, organisers say the counsellors ‘will be able to provide immediate crisis care, introduce victims to local support services for short- and long-term help and guide them through the various processes should they want to engage police to pursue further action.’ It’s part of a ‘constant process of improvement’ for Falls Festival, say organisers. Other measures to improve safety include increas-

ing number of CCTV cameras across the site and security in the campgrounds. Key event staff will also undertake psychological first aid training

Zero-tolerance Falls co-producers Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco said, ‘Falls has a zero-tolerance policy with regard to dangerous and irresponsible behaviours; the safety of our patrons is our foremost concern.’ ‘We work year round to bring together incredible events at some of Australia’s most iconic locations – we want everyone to feel free and safe in our spaces and to leave with great memories.’

Youth mental health screening September 6 Local filmmaker Darius Devas is holding a fundraiser screening Thursday September 6 at Pighouse Flicks for his new documentary series called HeadOn. Darius says the films tackle youth mental health, and the new documentary is called Spirit Walker –

Clinton’s Walk For Justice. He says, ‘It tracks the last stage of young Indigenous man Clinton Pryor’s 11-month protest walk from Perth to Canberra in the name of justice for his people, and the incredibly disrespectful reception he received from Turnbull.’

Native planting resource launched A new free online resource is available that identifies more than 1,550 local native plants. The Tweed Byron Native Species Planting Guide was developed by the Byron and Tweed Shire Councils and Brunswick Valley Landcare and Tweed Landcare, and encourages gardeners to plant natives into their gardens.

Alison Ratcliffe, Byron Shire Council’s Landcare support officer, said the guide is a database of what native plants are available in this area and what plants are good for a particular purpose. The guide is available at www.tweed.nsw.gov.au/NativeSpeciesPlantingGuide/ Byron.

A space for sharing and helping others In June 2017 Byron local Kristin Murray opened up a centre called the Womens Shack in the Arts and Industry Estate, Byron Bay. The Womens Shack had been Kristin’s dream since her 2011 trip to Nicaragua, where she volunteered with the Earth Education project, a charity that helps displaced women in the La Chureca rubbish dump. The Earth Education project not only employs the women to make recycled jewellery, but also gives women social skills and education. Kristin left Nicaragua with a vision to create a haven for women to come to and to not only be replenished by but also to share from, which is what the Womens Shack does.

Homeless women Kristin created a nonprofit that runs out of the Womens Shack, called the One Woman to Another project, which supplies sanitary items and blankets to homeless women on the streets as well as post-abortion packs to women who have experienced an abortion.

She says, ‘So far, I have donated blankets and sanitary items to women on the streets in Byron and am waiting on more supplies for an Anglican homeless youth project in Surfers Paradise. I have also privately donated post-abortion packs to women who see me directly. ‘Women really need all of the support that they can get during this time,’ says Kristin.   ‘The venue, which was formerly known as Red Tent

Yoga, is a luscious paradise for men and women alike, as men are welcome to many of the things offered in the space. However, the Womens Shack is primarily a safe place where women can share their skills and can learn about and be supported through the many aspects of womanhood that are so greatly missed in our education system and society. ‘Many women who come to our circles are so happy to learn about the female body,

about the different phases of the menstrual cycle, and the different phases of life.’ Kristin says the space is an unofficial non-profit and that the costs are kept low and accessible, which covers the cost of running the space. She says, ‘The Womens Shack offers these services at really reasonable rates making it accessible to the community.’ For more info on the wide range of activities on offer, visit www.womenshack. com or call 0468 496 807.

Byron’s fair share Council needs shorter meetings or complimentary stimulants. Or put another way, torture has many forms, and one is B-grade political banter to a mostly empty room. Last Thursday’s council meeting in the Mullum chambers kicked off at 4pm with two hours of public access (which was full), but by around 8pm it was clear that hapless staff and two journos left in the room were going to have endure a late night. It finished around 11pm. So what happened? Heaps! Yet with some small preparation and less yaddah yaddah and humbug it could been over much earlier. The Railway Park rotunda location was sorted (see page 2), a major urban development for Saddle Road (between Mullum and Brunswick) was thrashed out (see page 1) and a further report was requested around the ongoing issues at the very popular and disintegrating Broken Head Reserve and Seven Mile Beach Roads. The mayor’s motion was supported, which will look at a ticketing system at the entrance to Seven Mile Beach Road and sealing the roads. Another issue where Council has limited funds and no real powers (hint: the state government controls everything) is Byron High School traffic safety at Arakwal Court. Concerns about safety were explained to councillors by principal Janine Marcus in afternoon access. Cr Paul Spooner’s motion passed, which keeps staff moving along and also asks them to ‘Identify the most viable option between traffic lights or a roundabout at the intersection.’ It was around this point that the Greens mayor suggested that as local Nationals MLC Ben Franklin is challenging sitting MP Greens Tamara Smith for the upcoming state election (though yet to be a candidate), it was an excellent opportunity to lobby him for all sorts of improvements for the Shire. The Echo agrees. So here’s a short list. Don’t waste everyone’s time with a post mortem of the approved holiday industry after the government’s undercooked holiday laws have been in place for a year – instead, push for Council to be paid a bed tax via Airbnb and other platforms like they are in progressive larger economies in the US and Europe. Instigate an immediate inquiry into the effectiveness or otherwise of unelected planning panels (such as the JRPP) that determine questionable large developments. And regardless of that outcome, push for decision making to be returned to an elected body – councils. Lobby RMS to widen the one-lane roundabout outside the Byron Central Hospital and spank the bureaucrat behind that silly decision. Lobby for a light rail service to connect all the Shire’s towns to invigorate economic activity and community. Those are just a few, so let’s all get cracking on it!

n the end Malcolm Bligh Turnbull left the office just as he managed it – in appeasement, denial, dithering, procrastination, bluster, bravado, resentment and eventual capitulation – albeit with a characteristic burst of petulance. In the process he dumped almost all the more important policies he had demanded as vital for the country and went so far as to close down parliament in an attempt to avoid the consequences of his backflips, cowardice and his incompetence. It started a long time ago, and the Longman by-election became an important catalyst, but the final collapse was triggered by the abandonment of the NEG, which was supposed to be essential in providing both stability and popularity. It had achieved neither within the dysfunctional Liberal Party room, but there were signs that Labor was preparing to provide the bipartisan support Turnbull said he had always wanted. This would have given Turnbull the result, the outcome, that just about everyone was pleading for; but this was not about policy, it was about politics. Turnbull could never bear the humiliation of watching Labor vote with him while a handful of coalition rats crossed the floor. So no deal, no NEG – and now no Turnbull. Not that there was much left of him anyway. Various members of what Turnbull calls the insurgency claim that they had to act because Turnbull’s policies were drifting too far to the left. But they found it hard to name any of them, which is hardly a surprise because Turnbull gave them everything they wanted and more, even anticipating their demands. Tony Abbott once told Tony Windsor he would do anything to gain the top job except sell his arse; it is not clear that Turnbull

CHESS by Ian Rogers The poor state of governance nationally became clear this week when the Australian Chess Federation anointed a small Melbourne tournament as the official Australian Open. The Canterbury Summer Swiss, held during the gap between Christmas and New Year, is well established as a pleasant warmup tournament before the national championship. However, the organisers probably never expected to be rescuing the ACF from their own ineptitude by renaming the event the Australian Open. Consequently the 2019 Open, established in the calendar for decades as an early January event, will be played in the wrong year, over five days instead of eleven, and with a prize fund half that of Canberra’s Doeberl Cup. The Melbourne organisers have a fine pedigree but in trying to help out the ACF have been dealt an impossible hand, with players given only four months’ notice to change their holiday plans. The Open fiasco caps off a disastrous year for an increasingly shambolic ACF, which has shown itself to be unprepared for the takeover of junior chess adminis-

would even resist that fundamental reservation. From the start of his miserable regime, the progressive liberalism Turnbull promised in his life before parliament and in the initial period within it was wiped out in order to secure his ambition – his birthright as he saw it. His government began as skewed to the right and kept going. The break was not about the policies Turnbull was pursuing, but about the fear and loathing that he just might revert to the ones he long ago espoused. That, and of course his overthrow of the right’s hero, Tony Abbott.

boats’ policy. He would have no difficulty about incorporating Dutton and even Abbott in his cabinet and encouraging them to pursue the culture wars they so enjoy – if they can be trusted to behave themselves. So much for the new generation. There will be, Morrison said, echoing Turnbull’s own ascension, continuity and change; but a lot more of the former. Which of course brings us to the question: What madness enveloped the party to rip itself to bits so publicly and so bloodily for what has been a pretty uninspiring result?

The damage has been immense, and not only to the Liberal Party – or what remains of it. by Mungo MacCallum And quite apart from anything else, they just didn’t like the man. They were prepared to strap on the suicide-bomber belts if necessary to get rid of him. And they have, although only up to a point; Turnbull, if he sticks to his word, will shortly be gone but neither Abbott nor his protégé Peter Dutton has succeeded, and both are there to fight on. Turnbull, in one of the very few wins of his lamentable time as leader, has finagled Scott Morrison through what is being described as the middle. Well, this depends on where you are standing, but Morrison is no namby-pamby centrist. He is, and has always been, a creature of the right, both economically and socially. He is a dedicated union basher and an evangelical Pentacostalist, a worshipper of the free market and a fringe religion. And never forget he was the original architect of the ‘stop the tration at the start of the year. Top juniors expecting to compete internationally have been frustrated by the absence of calls for applications for major events. When juniors took the initiative and applied for events they were starved of information by the ACF, which also failed to appoint selectors. The Australian Junior Championships, the best attended classical tournament in Australia, would have gone the same way as the Australian Open but was saved late in the day by a former official of the Australian Junior Chess League, an organisation which the ACF had starved into extinction at the end of 2017. In only two areas does the ACF now show a level of professionalism: the running of a domestic rating system and coordination with the world body FIDE. Yet even here the ACF has made missteps, almost sabotaging one of the two Grandmaster tournaments in Australia in 2017 by initially voting not to rate the event. Such maladministration would in a normal organisation have caused those officials responsible for the failures to resign. Yet with no-one putting their hand up for a leadership challenge, the poor governance is likely to continue.

The damage has been immense, and not only to the Liberal Party – or what remains of it. The sight of the nation’s parliament degenerating into utter chaos before being shut down altogether has done as much to repel those who are already cynical about the democratic structure as the worst excesses of Donald Trump – more, probably, because they are closer to home. And the last week cannot be dismissed as a deranged aberration; Morrison might talk of leaving the past behind, a fresh government united in its high purpose to serve the people, but as soon as Question Time resurfaces, as soon as Abbott reappears on television (not that he has ever vanished) the punters will remember how very unloveable they all are, and by extension the system that produces them. And while the loathing will be universal, the Libs will cop the brunt of it – and so they should – the likelihood is that

the public will be as much bemused as repulsed, because what has really changed? A Band-Aid has been administered to the schism between moderates and rightists but the war will go on unabated. Malcolm Turnbull was responsible for his own demise – the combination of personal arrogance and political timorousness was always going to be fatal. But having said that, he is entitled to believe that it was not entirely about him – it was about that bloody divided party. Abbott was the great disrupter, but he had a zealous, if small, band of followers who were determined to remake the Liberal Party in their own image or blow it to smithereens. John Howard had shown them it could be pushed to the right; Abbott confirmed the trend. Turnbull and the mainstream resisted, but it only takes one side to start a war. As the ex-prime minister watched his ministers walk out the door until he was almost the last man standing he might have mused on the words with which the great Bruce Petty summed up, many years ago, another failing Liberal prime minister: The boy stood on the burning deck Whence all but he had fled And a staggering piece of insight Kept running around in his head. When the flame of truth hits the ship of state And the tides of time are turning They tend to bucket the captain – But the ship is what is burning. That prime minister was Billy McMahon. Will Malcolm Turnbull be remembered with similar derision? And if not, why not?

Science sceptic?

The climate science debate has been running for way too many action-stalling years. Why? The term science comes from the Latin word scientia, meaning ‘knowledge’. So all sciences are fields of evidence-based knowledge. Simple. So why are there still people within our knowledgesoaking, protein-rich, healthy communities who refute climate science? Do they also actively refute the outcomes of science in their daily lives? All manner of science, from the knowledge that smashing a rock can make for a sharp food-cutting tool,

to the vastly adopted inventions of cars, jet planes, bridges, highrise buildings, TVs, computers etc are taken totally as a given, no questions asked, thanks to the sciences of metallurgy, maths, physics, chemistry. But the science of climate is notably excluded by some. How can we trust our lives so directly with all sciences’ involvement, but not for one of its disciplines, climate science? The peer group scrutiny and agreement amongst the overwhelming majority of climate scientists globally is telling and warning us that all life on Earth as we know it is collapsing at an increasingly

alarming rate, and that we all must act immediately to mitigate our emissions to avert this global disaster NOW or run the imminent risk of civilisation collapse. That’s everything for all time, because going beyond the tipping point of when no amount of CO2 mitigation will make any difference will take nature tens of thousands of years to rectify, if it does at all. It’s bizarre not to transition out of coal and oil into free endless renewable energy via the sun. Yet this is what enough of us are voting for, election after election; a government that actively pursues the energy

Recently I got to sample the unpalatable food dished up in our local hospitals. Whether you are recovering from major surgery or are very sick, the food you are served should be fresh and appetising. All hot meals served at Murwillumbah and Tweed hospitals are pre-cooked and frozen in Sydney, Melbourne or Adelaide. The computer ordering system very often gets the order wrong. The catering staff at both hospitals are fed up with the system and the complaints they receive daily from the patients. One woman confided in me, ‘Today and yesterday are the first days that I haven’t broken down in tears!’ she told me. ‘I used to sing all day at work. I’ve worked here for over 30 years. I can’t wait till I retire in two years’. Later I heard her across in the opposite ward, starting her standard spiel of the menu, in her gruff, unhappy voice, until she remembered, continued on next page

Holiday letting

Fair Trading Minister Matt Kean in his introduction speech to the Fair Trading Amendment (Short Term Rental Accommodation) Bill, 2018, stated ‘If the investigation of a complaint regarding a host or guest finds that they have committed a serious breach of the Code more than once over a two year period, the guest or host will be listed on the register’ (Hansard 6 June, 2018). Based on his statement, VOHL (Victims Of Holiday Letting) has major concerns that a still undeveloped Code of Conduct will not protect the residential amenity of neighbours of holiday lets. Kean’s statement appears to indicate that if the occu-

pants of a holiday let make a disturbance such as offensive noise, then only a penalty (‘strike’) will be applied to the guest and not the host who is the owner/manager. Therefore, the owner/manager is not taking any responsibility for a failure in their vetting and management. Online platforms and hosts are only provided with the name and address of the principal guest who gives credit card details. If this guest is listed on the register, they can easily circumvent any imposed restriction by getting another relative or friend to make future bookings. Invited friends are often a further cause of residential amenity damage. VOHL has always stated that owners must be held responsible in this Code to solve any problems that arise where residential amenity is disrupted. Hosts allow guests into their holiday let for commercial gain and should take responsibility for problems that arise. In hotel, motel and B&B accommodation management and/or security are onsite to immediately resolve any disturbance. Our permanent residents must be protected. Doug Luke Coordinator, VOHL

School fight

The community of Pottsville and surrounds continue the fight to establish a secondary education facility in southern Tweed Shire. In its own statement via budget announcements, the Department of Education stated that projections of government school enrolments for 2019–20 were to be over 40,000 higher than that of 2015–16 yet there is still no plan for a government high school in Pottsville – despite land being set aside for that very purpose. As subdivisions continue across the Tweed Shire, with an estimated 4,500 homes in the Kings Forest housing estate alone, the question is being asked – how will the children who move into this area be educated once they reach secondary school? Kingscliff High School’s current enrolment of 1,280 students continues to increase as more families move to the Tweed Shire. Most of

netdaily.net.au those who have moved to the Pottsville area in particular were lured here with the promise of a high school to be built in the very near future. Land earmarked in 2000 for the school is still vacant and those who have moved to the area with children are now placing their children on buses for commutes of up to 45 minutes each way. The 2016 Census Data shows 485 students from Pottsville, Bogangar, Burringbar, Hastings Point and Cudgen Creek are commuting to high school for up to 45 minutes one way. While the NSW government funds the school bus use of these children, the amount of money spent per student could easily fund a new school in Pottsville and save the government millions of wasted dollars. When children commute to school, they are removed from their local community. This affects the children’s ability to obtain part-time jobs and play sport in their local community. The flow on effect is then felt with local business as they lose not only the children, but the parents. Appointments are made in Kingscliff instead of Pottsville because the dentist or doctor continued on page 16

Nimbin. Saturday, 10.15pm

W

hile the boys were playing Touch My Penis in parliament house, adults had gathered in the Nimbin School of Arts for the second Blue Moon Cabaret of the year. And I really wanted to mix with adults tonight. With hot winds fanning fires around the tribal land in an ever-earlier fire season, and with the juvenile but catastrophic shenanigans in the government playground, my week had climaxed into a Saturday of tension. I could feel it knotting in my shoulders; I could hear it ringing in my ears as my tinnitus yanked on the bells of anxiety. After the MC leaves the stage, two local women enter from opposite directions, large green feather fans hiding their faces. They prance to centre stage where a trapeze hangs above them.

Gobbledygook I have given up on politics; you will not get a mature response to the pressing problems facing our society from a politician. You will get, at best, obfuscating gobbledygook; at worst, lies layered on lies creating a giant pancake of falsehood, liberally doused in short-term sweetener, cooked up to placate the ravenous appetite of the obesely rich. And the climate clock ticks… Australia has no energy policy. Still. There are some – and they’re in government – who deny climate science. Still. How is that possible? Is the bubble of the elite so thickly insulating that they honestly think they know better than the overwhelming majority of climate scientists? Or is it short-term self-

Politics at that level has the power to neuter the potency of the most positive activist, to shackle the most energetic, to tire the most relentless. advantage (does the bubble have air-conditioning?) that drives the incompetence? In short, are politicians stupid or selfish? I have given up on politics, so it’s with some trepidation that I see good people (adults), who have fought bravely and effectively in our communities for positive change, move into that dirty game. Will it be our gain, or our loss? Politics at that level has the power to neuter the potency of the most positive activist, to shackle the most energetic, to tire the most relentless. If politicians cannot help us, where do we look for guidance? Laying down her feather fan, one of the women swings

onto the trapeze in a graceful, seemingly effortless movement. Elegance is the act of achieving much with little obvious effort: the wedge-tail eagle riding the winds above my shack under the cliffs; a rose in a pot on my verandah slowly blooming from bud to glorious flower. And it is with elegance that the second woman, with a hand from the first, ascends to the trapeze.

Leadership failure On the other hand, with a maximum of expensive fuss, the government achieves nothing. This bland wardrobe of suits failed to create an energy policy that incorporates the reality of a changing climate. It has failed to even mount the trapeze, let alone

do something beautiful with it. It’s been an inelegant spectacle of leadership failure by all of government. Of course, the failure is a win to the selfish and stupid. The two women, bodies like panthers, are twisting and turning like DNA on the single trapeze. There is a gasp from the audience as one of the women slides headfirst down the other to snap to halt, just above the floor, hanging by a foot clasped by the other woman. Applause. I needed to be with adults tonight. Adults who can talk properly, who dress with individual creativity, who understand the enormity of the challenge that faces us, who appreciate human elegance. We have listened to music, watched dance, seen acrobats. We come to strengthen the bonds of community as we hurtle into the new era, abandoned by politicians, inspired by artists, knowing that somewhere in the creative elegance of humanity lies our future. Here be adults.

Letters continued from page 14 is closer to the school. Parents shop in Kingscliff as they have had to attend a meeting at the school so it is easier to do it there than have to go out twice. Without a secondary school, the community is missing out on business and the children are missing out on valuable opportunities to work in their local community. As children face a commute for six years, HSC completion rates drop in these areas, simply put, these children are on a bus when

North Coast news daily: others are already home and studying. These children are preparing for their commute to school almost an hour before those students with a local high school are eating breakfast. In some instances this is not avoidable. In the instance of a Pottsville high school, this is clearly avoidable due to the land already awaiting development and the children ready and willing to attend the high school. The 2016 Census Data showed the estimated population growth to 2036 in the

Tweed Shire increasing by 33.19 per cent, and the largest age group the Tweed Shire has are 5–9 year olds. Why are the education needs of these children are not being planned for now? Leah Phillips Pottsville

Development dreams At the last council meeting community members raised concerns regarding the reclassification of Byron’s Railway Park’s status to ‘General Community Use’. This proposed status is important to

Council as it allows possibility for development (in time) and ‘reduces noise’. This proposed definition also reduces the ability of citizens to meet and voice opposition to neo-con economic agendas and proposed development (in the future). That is what ‘peaceful use’ seems to mean. A means to quell any inclusive democratic community opposition to Council and crony demands for ongoing development. The Park has had Artisan Markets for some time and this commercialism has not

created any great community concern and as a special event would seem allowable under the current Park status. At the meeting a speaker expressed deep concern about the seeming justification for more commercial development and laying of cement. These markets and the potential for other future ‘commercial activities’ create a mechanism of ‘soft surveillance’. Supporting wedge politics an example was offered of a sleeping homeless man who seemed to carry the projected mythological demonology of the bogey man that lurks in Parks to terrify citizens and little children. Commercialism as an actor of ‘soft surveillance’ would get rid of the local problem of homelessness. No equity policy seems to exist in Council and all focus goes to developers. There has been growing moral panic about the need to get rid of the ‘Hippies’ and now, very obviously the ‘Homeless’. Also certain critics object to the ‘Dirty-ness’ which also seems to be associated with the latter human categorisations. Does that justify all of the cement now being placed in the Park? No empirical evidence was offered of incidents that justified this moral panic just personal/political prejudice supported justification for the re-classification, and no doubt future development in the space. A question was asked as to whether the Arakwal people have been involved in the process of reclassification. We were assured they were. When asked what their position was this question revealed confusion. Submissions against reclassification were submitted and the voice of opposition from the Byron Environment Centre (BEC) has been an ongoing critic of the masterplan non-democratic process. Only recently have minutes of the masterplan team been placed on Facebook. The masterplan group have been operative for several years. Jo Faith Newtown

Thank you Danny Wakil (Letters 22 August). Finally a voice that has the intellect, spirit of heart, and factual knowledge to bring some balanced discussion to the Middle East table. Yes, this has indeed become a vexed and complicated issue, however, misinformation and misalignment does nothing to encourage a way forward to authentic

netdaily.net.au consideration and tolerant thinking. I support Mr Wakil in his efforts to address a more informed and balanced discussion. Bianca van der Linden Middle Pocket Q In recent weeks letters have appeared in The Echo accusing me of seeking to ‘stir up hatred against Israel’ and making it ‘look like an evil state’. In each case The Echo has declined to publish my responses. The implication is that Israel doesn’t deserve the criticism, it’s an innocent victim that is being unfairly criticised by someone who is simply prejudiced against Jews. It is indicative of the selfabsorbed nature of Zionist partisans that they invariably consider criticism of Israel to be motivated by irrational hatred, bias and anti-semitism. Nowhere in their tedious propaganda is there a glimmer of compassion for the Palestinians or an awareness that concern for the plight of Palestinians motivates critics of the Zionist agenda.

A little elbow grease There must be others who have discovered just how few consumer products are required to keep you, your dwelling and also the environment clean. For many decades now I have not purchased dish washing liquid. All that is needed is a tissue to wipe the oil from utensils, then a scourer, if necessary water. Water and ‘elbow grease’ will be just as effective. Saves a lot of money too. A back brush is all that is needed for showering, no soap – which is very drying. Occupants in a house I once shared told me that my cleaning of the shower with bicarbonate of soda was the best clean it had received compared to the various chemicals they normally used. Vinegar will disinfect surfaces and clean windows. Our seas and rivers are so polluted, why add oils and detergents where creatures that benefit the ecology are endeavouring to exist? I have visited many homes and been amazed at the range of ‘ghastly unguents’ under sinks. Harken: A few wee germs will stregthen your immune system. A E Davey Brunswick Heads

Italian artisan-style gelato By S Haslam In the Pink Gelato in Jonson St opened on 1 September 1988 (30 years ago)* and is an incredibly popular place, serving around 200,000 gelatos a year. Surprisingly, their customer base has moved from being families in the 80s and 90s (most popular flavour then: chocolate) and is now almost 90 per cent adults (most popular now: Ferrero Rocher and salted caramel Nutella) I suspect it’s the quality – they have always made their gelato from scratch in the old-school Italian artisan style, sourcing fresh blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and bananas from the farmers market, and macadamias, passionfruit, limes and mangoes locally, along with Norco milk of course. ‘The rule for the most outstanding flavour in all foods holds good for gelato with the in-season fruits being the best by far’, says owner Glen Lawrence, who takes his craft seriously, travelling regularly to Italy to keep up with the latest ideas. ‘Most gelato these days is industrial, heavy on stabilisers, emulsifiers’, he says. ‘Artisan to me means old school slow style. Maximum freshness with minimal stabilisers. If you drop our gelato on the ground it will melt; scarily much of the gelato in Australia and Italy would not. While many might resent having to travel to Italy to try gelato, Glen somehow manages to make it fun. ‘In Sicily I tried my favourite gelato’, he says, ‘at a small hole-in-the-wall shop. You couldn’t see the gelato but they only used seasonal ingredients and it was outstanding.’ He also loves the cultural aspect to gelato. ‘The Italian Sunday afternoon promenade is a huge ritual that nearly always includes gelato,’ he says. ‘It is a firm part of their way of life that looks pretty nice from a gelato shop-owner perspective.’ The newest flavours at In the Pink over winter have been the very rich chocolate sorbet (dairy free) and Espresso Martini or Lemon Cheesecake gelato. The shop manufactures all its product in Byron Shire, suppling not only Baylato and Brunswick Milkbar but also local restaurants. ‘The best chefs understand that the best gelato flavours are seasonal’, says Glen, ‘and some of the more interesting flavours we’ve been putting on menus have included dragon fruit, or cocktails sorbets like mojito or cosmo.’ The difference between gelato and ice-cream is the fat content and freshness. Gelato has less than eight per cent fat and is meant to be consumed fresh, with the flavour being at its peak for a few days without all the stabilisers and artificial products that commercial icecream has to use to last for months. In the Pink has been a proud, long time sponsor of many sporting groups and schools in the local area for 30 years. There have been hundreds of local junior employees working their way through school and uni at In the Pink but maybe the most famous is now an Oscar winner living in London with his own animation company. *Right now to celebrate the 30th year there’s a big promotion going on. You can win a year’s supply of gelato (52 take home packs, value $900+), drawn at the end of October. Plus, there are happy hour(s) $1 gelato from 12 till 2pm on Saturday and Sunday September the 1st and 2nd. More info: In the Pink 20A Jonson St, Byron Bay Open: 9am–10pm 7 days.

Before I can ask him whether he has any favourite foods outside his beloved Asian cuisines, Zeb tells me that he celebrated his 39th birthday in style the night before our interview. ‘I had a fried chicken burger with coleslaw, chips and champagne out of a paper cup,’ he says of To help celebrate we have: his meal with his wife and two Happy Hour $1 gelato scoops (each $1 goes to drought relief) daughters, aged three and six. This weekend Saturday 1 and Sunday 2 September - 12 till 2pm With that down-to-earth style Fill up our regular customer card- (buy 4 get one free) and go into a combined with his cooking draw at the end of October for a years supply of Gelato* pedigree, I think Zeb will fit in to the Sample Food Festival Monthly social media vouchers for Fleet Restaurant and extremely well.

Big move for Earth ’n’ Sea

Sweet helpers Mark Conroy with Isaac, Shelley and Jordan Manouk. Photo by Jeff ‘Fluff ’n’ elves’ Dawson

Short, sweet helpers By S Haslam Were you thinking elves? I was, but Mark Conroy is not, in fact, an elf. ‘My dad owned a dairy farm,’ says Mark, ‘and I know a few people who live around Cobar and Orange. I grew up in that kind of farming environment and I really feel for the farmers with 100 per cent of the state affected by drought.’ At his market stall Short But Sweet patisserie products he works with his sister and brother-in-law selling delicacies such as Portuguese tarts, roasted pistachio profiteroles, gluten-free Belgian chocolate brownies and so on. Starting from last Saturday at the Bangalow Market, Mark is personally donating a dollar from every sale at his stall to those guys and gals doing it tough out west in the drought, for the next month or so. ‘We were sitting around and we thought that a lot more people should be doing something like this, so we are encouraging other stallholders at the Bangalow Market to do the same,’ he said. The following week Mark will be at the Byron Market, and the week after at Pottsville. They have made up their own T-shirts, so if you see them be sure to buy something yummy for a good cause.

Denise and David are friendly people who make their customers feel welcome, keeping up the good vibes from so many years ago and their regular following, and any newbies, can expect the same warm welcome at the new location from this week. More info: Earth ’n’ Sea Pizza New location: 2/3 Marvell St, Byron earthnseapizzabyronbay.com.au

To stay in the food business over 40 years in Byron you must be doing something right, but while locals Denise and David Woolsey have kept pumping out the pizzas, they’ve made a few daring moves themselves. When they took over in 2003, the pizza joint started by Bill Wheatley and Ian Hamilton had already moved the short distance from Jonson St to Lawson St. But the Woolseys took it a full 100m or so farther from the sea to the corner of Fletcher and Byron Streets, and after nine years they are now, daringly, taking it another 100m around the corner to 2/3 Marvell St, near the corner of Fletcher St, in the old Naked Treaties site. But the awesomeness of the pizzas will not be diminished, with even the pizza ovens, as well as the 20-odd staff, many longtime locals, making the move to the new premises. In fact, the new location will be focused on pizzas only. There will be a much smaller, more casual dining area that will be BYO for wine and beer. ‘The revamped Earth ’n’ Sea Pizza will embrace all the technology that modern customers expect when they think “pizza”,’ Denise says. ‘Customers’ expectations are changing when it comes to pizza. We started online ordering nearly four years ago and it is the fastestgrowing part of our business. More and more customers want to be able to order and pay online and with our own app and inbuilt loyalty system, which should be up and running soon. We will be moving with the times to give them what they want.’

Pictured top, Earth’n’Sea have been long-time regular advertisers in The Echo. This ad dates from when the Belongil dunes were first eroded. Pictured bottom, a regular fun chalkboard on display outside the previous Byron Street restaurant.

BYRON BAY CHILLI CO Twenty-five years ago, my neighbour Frank Peate and I turned the rich, red Goonengerry soil, planting Jalapeño chiles and tomatillos on Sunrise Hill. When we realised that Mexican Micks could only use so many, my wife Lynne and I started making salsa at home, selling it with tacos at the local markets. I vividly remember the ethereal sound of this old dude who regularly played his saw at the Lismore Car Boot Markets, and the smell of our main competitors… hot dogs and fairy floss. Today, almost everyone is eating tacos and nachos. Times change, but the joy of feeding so many people exceptionally tasty, healthy food at a down-to-earth price has not… Thank you all. – The Bolands www.byronbaychilli.com

A REAL TUFFY

SOME OF YOU AS OLD AS I MIGHT REMEMBER FROM THE PSYCHEDELIC FOLK GROUP WILD PUMPKINS AT MIDNIGHT. TUFFY HAS ALWAYS BEEN A PIONEER OF UNIQUE MUSIC, AND THIS AUSTRALIAN SINGER/SONGWRITER AND MUSIC MAKER, WHO NOW LIVES IN THE NETHERLANDS, CONTINUES HIS CREATIVE LEGACY WITH HIS DEBUT SOLO RELEASE, LAST YEAR’S SONGS FROM DAN. HE IS CURRENTLY PRESENTING SELECT SHOWS AROUND THE COUNTRY WITH TWO OF HIS FAVOURITE COLLABORATORS, LUCIE THORNE AND MATT WALKER. ‘At the Mullum show we will have just three people onstage with me and they are all excellent musicians. I just know with that kind of lineup we’d create a vibe anywhere. If I get the vibe people are engaged at an empathic level, it will always influence how we play…’ says Dan. Songs from Dan happened when Tuffy invited Lucie and Matt to his studio to work on some songs that he wasn’t quite sure about.

‘I had another band and the songs I had were very country and weren’t really working with the group I was playing with in Holland. I knew they were cool songs, so I played them to Matt and Lucie and they loved them. So we went to my studio and played them. That session was the guts of the album. I didn’t finish that though until I had the opportunity to get into the studio with Matt and Lucie again.’

With Americana.uk placing Songs From Dan as one of the best releases of the year and the very critical Euro mag OOR calling it a masterpiece, it’s clear that when these three are together magic happens. ‘I love the process of making music,’ says Dan. ‘It’s important to just give space to the process without clouding it with ambition; there is a time for that later when it is finished. You have to go into action to get where the music needs you to go. I am really into thinking beyond the song. I like the sound and I like texture. When I am in the process of making music I get all these ideas. I don’t act on all of them. I try not to let that get in the way of the performance. The performance is everything. You can get ahead of yourself if you think too much. One of the things I have learnt about the

creative process is that you have to let it come from the place before words. It’s easy to lose grip of that by over thinking or over conceptualising.’ Dan is looking forward to coming to Australia to play with Matt and Lucie. ‘I just love playing with them both,’ says Tuffy, it’s very natural. We do all of my stuff, and they really support my material; we work together to create a sound, but we don’t rehearse.’ The fourth player on the night is past band member and songwriter for Wild Pumpkins at Midnight and local resident Michael Turner (Durga Babies). Michael hasn’t performed with Lucie, Matt and Dan before, and Dan is looking forward to the musical collaboration. Songs From Dan play at the Mullumbimby Ex-Services on Friday at 7.30pm. Tix are $20 online at www.mullumexservices.com.au or $25 at the door. Support by Jimmy Dowling.

LES ENFANTS TERRIBLES & THE FIGHT FOR THE BIKE I have privileged white man fatigue. Frankly Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sick of the pricks. The recent Liberal party room â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I want a turnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tantrum just left me and a lot of Australians cold. Why is our country being run by ugly white bald baby men? I should clarify: balding men in suits look like giant ugly babies in onesies to me. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ironic: in NZ the PM had a baby, but here the PM and his crew ARE babies. New babies are gorgeous. Old Babies are gross. Our politicians behave exactly like babies. Parliament is the playroom for these enfants terribles. I can see them bawling and sucking their thumbs perched on the Speakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lap for the upcoming Xmas Santa photos. Swinging their little leggies, whispering their Xmas wish to Santa to have a turn at prime minister. I imagine the babies in the Lib party room last week, aka creche (owned by Dutton of course), on their backs kicking their trousered legs in the air crying. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Malcolmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had a long turn. I want a turn. He gets all the turns.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; (We are substituting â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;turnsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; here for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;termsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;Ś for those who may have missed my simplistic leadership metaphor). Malcolm is in the corner, looking like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to cry. No, he is crying. His bottom lip is out and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quivering. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the little wooden motorbike and he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get off. His friend Matty says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s okay. He wants him to have a long turn. Even the teacher says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still Malcolmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turn so he can stay on, but the other babies are angry. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to wait for Malcolmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turn to finish. When Malcolm finishes his turn theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re worried that another group of babies might steal the bike away. It looks like Pete is going to push Malcolm off. Pete is a really ugly mean baby. He likes taking toys from other babies a lot. He helped lock a whole lot of brown babies in a jail. Those brown babies arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allowed in. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bad baby. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so good at being bad everyone thinks heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good. And besides heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got Tony, the other big mean sulky baby ,with him. Tony has had a turn on the bike already, but he secretly thinks the bike is his. Even if he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a go on the bike he just wants Malcolm off. He wants Malcolm to know what it feels like when someone wrecks your turn on the bike. This is because Malcolm took the bike from Tony when he was having his turn and he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get over it. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Julie. She thinks sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to get a go, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s silly. Girl babies donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to ride boy bikes. Sometimes the boys let her get on the back when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having their turn. They even let her clean the bike. Julie will never get to ride the bike on her own. The boys let Julie line up anyway because they need lots of angry babies to scare Malcolm off the bike. Malcolmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not stupid; he knows that he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to have his proper turn now. So he slips off the bike quietly and goes and sits on the bench at the back of the playroom. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the one the babies call the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;back benchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for babies who probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be getting any more turns on the bike. He might have to leave the creche all together. They might even have to call his Mummy to come and pick him up because his play time at the party is over. For a second, no-one is on the bike. And then Scottie jumps on. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Scottieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s turn. No-one even knew he even wanted one. Scottie is pushing himself around the playroom floor on the little bike to the delight of most of the other babies and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s off his face with the thrill of being in control. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yelling out random shit like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;everyone will get a go, a fair go, if you want a go you get a go, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go until you get a go because everything must go. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right, everyone gets a go.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Except for the babies who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a go. Like the brown babies locked up. In a room on another island. Scottie certainly wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be letting them have a go. To think Peter nearly got the bike! That would have been silly, because then we would have had Dutton dressed up as PM. HELP! We have reached peak privileged white man. Please! Can anyone who is not an ageing privileged white man please be given a turn? If anyone is going get a fair go in this country itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for some systemic change. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time we stole the bike.

LIVE MUSIC WHILE HER GUITAR GENTLY WEEPS Byron Bay Guitar Festival director Nick Sergi is passionate about making sure women guitarists feature on his lineup. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Looking at history there are not many women celebrated for their guitar playing. Countless women have been and are brilliant players, but just not recognised for it. Guitar has traditionally been seen as a manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s instrument. If you Google â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;100 Best guitarists of all timeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, I think there are only two women on that list, which is ridiculous. If our festival can be a platform, however small, to help shift that perception and change the conversation a bit, then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very happy to do that,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he says. BBGF is proud to present on this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lineup, a diverse array of female representation across several genres including Dallas Frasca, Hussy Hicks, Minnie Marks, Legs Electric, Tullara, When Hawk Met Sparrow, and performers from Byron Bay High School (still to be announced). October 6 and 7 at the Brewery. Find out more at byronbayguitarfestival.com.

A VALIANT EFFORT Valiant Charger has re-tuned and is smashing it out of the garage as part of a full lineup of LIVE music coming to Mullumbimby this week. Born from the base of Chincogan, this eclectic group is pulling back the covers on all the great songs you heard from the backseat. Recharged. Morphed. Raw, highly skilled, energy packedâ&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a PunkPopOzRock Confusion not to be missed. They are a five-piece powerhouse. Paddy Mac the frontman is a quirky entertainer with a voice that has you thinking heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bon Scott and Shirley Basseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love child. Joining them on the bill is the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest punk-post-punk band The Joltz. Solo performances by locals StrumDaddy and DALLAS round out a night of individual expression. Court House Hotel, Mullumbimby â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Friday 8pm. $5

NEW VIDEO FOR OUT OF RANGE Out of Range will be playing at Sphinx Rock Cafe, Mt Burrell, for Fathers Day, 12â&#x20AC;&#x201C;3pm. They have just released a new video, ahead of their sets at Nimbin Roots Festival and Mullum Festival. Check it out at https://youtu.be/YrfzDRPilzo.

MAMANTA The Byron Theatre plays host to a very special show this Friday, sharing the journey to the Tiwi Islands with Mamanta â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a moving performance honouring the past and celebrating the future. Building on their international touring acclaim, B2M (Bathurst to Melville) are embarking on their first major national tour. This seven-piece band from the Tiwi Islands will showcase their unique blend of contemporary and traditional sound in a new performance that reveals the full breadth of Tiwi culture and identity! In an historic show of support from the Tiwi elders, B2M have permission to use traditional Tiwi chants and blend them with modern musical elements. Combined with vivid multimedia imagery of contemporary arts and cultural practices, Mamanta brings the Tiwi Islands to life. At the Byron Centre on Friday at 7.30pm.

DIRTY MUSIC The Dirty Channel Duo return to The Rails this Thursday and Evans Head Illawong Saturday  night for a performance of different genres from slick Dobro slide guitar with some grooving percussive drums to acoustic Flamenco with Latin rhythms and other genres in between. The Dirty Channel name originated from the warm dirty sound setting of a guittar amplifier, which, mixed with a 1930s Dobro that was found floating in the bilge of a fishing trawler gives them their unique sounds.

80S UKE Miss Amber and Stukulele will be presenting two sets of hits from the 80s. Expect some new-wave pop hits and a power ballad or two from artists like Madonna, Billy Idol, The Cars, Martha and the Muffins, Bowie, Kim Wilde and even Flock of Seagulls. Dress up and party like its 198-something. Guest vocalists Ash Bell and daughter Rose Eadie. The songbook is available throughukemullum.com or live stream â&#x20AC;&#x201C; subscribe to youtube.com/ukemullum so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss the notification. Mullumbimby ExServices, Thursday, 6.30pm. Entry on the door Adults $15, $2.50 and kids under five FREE.

LIVE MUSIC THE STAGE IS MY SHEPPARD

HAILING FROM BRISBANE, SHEPPARD IS AN INDIE POP BAND FORMED BY BROTHER AND SISTER AMY AND GEORGE SHEPPARD BACK IN 2009. BOMBS AWAY WAS THEIR DEBUT STUDIO ALBUM BACK IN 2014 AND FEATURED THE HIT GERONIMO. THEY CRACKED A NUMBER 2 ON THE ARIA CHARTS… THIS YEAR THEY RELEASED WATCHING THE SKY AND THEY’RE HEADING TO THE KINGSCLIFF HOTEL FOR WHAT IS SURE TO BE A MASSIVE GIG.

and Geronimo surpassed any expectations we had. Although we felt we had something special, we were very aware that many musicians feel that way about their own music. You can never expect that to happen to you, especially when you’re just a little band from Brisbane. Between April and June of 2014 you played with some of the biggest names touring Australia: Michael Franti, Keith Urban. How was that, a career highlight for you guys? And was it an amazing learning experience for you? We learnt A LOT from both Franti and Urban. They have got to be some of the most genuine artists in the industry. Their humility and generosity to their fans and crew, as well as our band, is something that has stuck with us. After experiencing touring with these world-class acts we aspire to always make people feel welcome and comfortable and a part of the team.

Tell us about how your journey had inspired your new album Watching The Sky. What is it about? What inspired Watching the Sky was the hope of demonstrating to our audience how important it is to have a dream and how important it is to stay authentic to yourself and that dream. Every song on the album has derived from a real experience, most of which were on the road after releasing Bombs Away. What’s your favourite song on the album? One of my favourite moments of writing the album was when we were all working on the track I Was Lost. In the bridge of the song there’s a section where we each gets a turn to sing. My line is ‘5am when the sunlight breaks, six young minds in a crowded place’. Although we are so grateful for the opportunities we are given, this whole section is about how difficult we found extensive touring. Being away from friends and loved ones, being in a very foreign place, and endless travel take their toll on a lot of musicians and different people handle the stress of it all in various ways, some which can be very destructive to their regular life. Sheppard will be playing Kingscliff Beach Hotel on Friday 31 August. oztix.com.au.

Six years since you released your multi-award-winning Bombs Away – was the response a surprise to you? The success of Bombs Away

CULTURE WHEN MY BABY SOMERSAULTS AT ME I GO TO… CIRCUS RIO

Circus Rio bring their electric energy to Lismore Showgrounds for an action-packed season in what is to be their north coast debut! Circus Rio unites diverse culture and dance with rare circus acts performed by few others in the industry. This combination is sure to delight the people of Lismore and surrounds, from toddlers to grandparents – there’s something for everyone! Classics like clowns, rolla bolla and juggling will be

paired with innovative new favourites such as tightrope and aerialist tricks. This group can’t get enough of travelling around some of Australia’s unique towns. The crew can’t wait to live as the locals and are asking for your opinion on the best destinations for them to visit during their stay. Fans are encouraged to send them a message on our social media with the hashtag: #circusriotakesnorthcoast. Circus Rio at the Lismore Showgrounds from Thursday, with full show running through until 9 September! Show at 7pm

25 YEARS ON… YOTHU YINDI AND THE TREATY PROJECT Hot on the heels of their sensational NAIDOC Week performance in Kalgoorlie then at Queensland’s new outback event, Gulf Country Frontier Days Festival, Yothu Yindi & The Treaty Project bring their new, electronica-driven show to Lismore City Hall on Saturday 15 September. The current national conversation surrounding Indigenous affairs and recent wave of new-generation artists keeping the message and culture alive – such as A.B.Original, Baker Boy, Kardajala Kirridarra, Electric Fields, not to mention the recent successful reformation tour of Midnight Oil, stalwart supporters of the cause – have made it clear that now is the time for this iconic outfit to renew their involvement in that protest. Yothu Yindi & The Treaty Project was inspired by the new remix package celebrating the 25th anniversary of Treaty (Filthy Lucre Remix), which resulted in ARIA Hall of Fame inductees Yothu Yindi reuniting with Gavin Campbell of production outfit Filthy Lucre, in a reinvigorated formation. The outfit features original Yothu Yindi members, along with emerging First Nations artists and special guests performing new remixes of classic Yothu Yindi hits (courtesy of producers Nubreed, Lostep and Filthy Lucre), plus brand-new material, all with an electronic twist in a crossgenerational celebration of cultural diversity.

ALTERNATIVE PRIME MINISTER MARK SWIVEL’S NATIONAL CAMPAIGN TO GET ELECTED GOT OFF TO A CRACKING START THIS WEEK WITH THE TOP JOB UP FOR GRABS IN A LATE-NIGHT LIBERAL PARTY GAME OF DRAWING STRAWS. MARK IS DOING HIS SHOW AND ACTUALLY RUNNING FOR THE SENATE. THIS IS AN INNOVATIVE AND IRREVERENT APPROACH THAT SHOWS INTEGRITY, POLITICAL ACUMEN AND SHOW TUNES CAN BE BED PARTNERS! IN HIS EFFORT TO MAKE AUSTRAYA SLIGHTLY BETTER THAN AVERAGE AGAIN, MARK SWIVEL GAVE US THE LOWDOWN. Give me three words that you’d use to describe Scott Morrison? He’s a Dill. Dangerous. Ignorant. Lucky. What kind of prime minister do you think he’ll be. What do you think he’ll manage to achieve in his first week? Surprisingly good by the sad standards of Australian government. In week 1 he’ll finish the pagoda and beat his mum at Scrabble (they’re off for a fortnight).

THE CHEEK OF IT Two years in, people continue to talk about the Cheeky Cabaret and we are thrilled that some of the most incredible international artists from around the world are beating down the door to come and perform at the Brunswick Picture House. Bold, brash, sexy and dangerous, with tongue laced firmly in cheek, this is one party you will not want to miss! Smashing together circus, vaudeville, comedy and everything in between, the Cheeky Cabaret has rightfully become the talk of the town. Friday and Saturday at 7pm at Brunswick Picture House. brunswickpicturehouse.com.au

LAWYER TURNED COMEDIAN TURNS IT ON! Former lawyer and now comedian Chris Radburn has earned a reputation for clever and cheeky observations that are relatable, original and hilarious. Chris has appeared as a comedian on more than 15 TV shows including The NRL Footy Show, Last Comic Standing, CNN International, Stand Up Australia, Thursday Night Live, Getaway, Joker Poker and Sydney Comedy Festival Gala. Over the last 15 years, this funny Aussie bloke has performed at every major festival including the Sydney Comedy Festival, Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Adelaide Fringe, Woodford Folk Festival, Just for Laughs Comedy Showcase and Sydney’s World’s Funniest Island. Chris is an award-winning writer/actor/ director with his short film Embellish and his two comedy web series The Guide to Being a Successful Man and The Parents. He headlines at the Big Gig at the Ballina RSL on Thursday at 8pm and Tuesday at Ocean Shores Country Club at 7pm. Both shows feature Mandy Nolan as MC.

Malcolm Turnbull took credit for gay marriage. What else can he take credit for? And Scotty Mo voted NO. Doesn’t that make him a loser in the public court of opinion? Turnbull can take credit for wasting the greatest opportunity of his life. The natural PM of his generation blew it. On marriage equality Mal allowed a plebiscite, which epitomised his gutlessness. At the end he said he never gave in to bullies but he’d done that since day one. ScoMo is a loser in the court of public opinion but by a smaller majority than you’d think. Scott Morrision is old and balding. Why is this a prerequisite for power? Why can’t we be like NZ and Canada and have a ‘hot’ PM? Or if not hot, how about ethical, smart, and someone we can be proud of? We send our spunks to Hollywood. It’s a condition of the gift of Pine Gap. Hey, how does anyone breathe let alone live and eat properly working in our political parties? That Morrison is alive is amazing. Give the prick a break, Mandy! Scott Morrison is an evangelical Christian, and he took credit for ‘stopping the boats’. Is it possible to do both? Yeah, ‘cos most evangelical Christians have two core beliefs: property and its protection at any cost. What is wrong with our political system? Will we ever escape this diabolical two-party system where we the voters just sit back and watch people play ‘who can get the biggest pension’ on retirement? It feels more like careerism than governance… We the people don’t participate enough. We’ve trusted the political class way too long. Noticed that? A change has gotta come and it will come from people outside the current system and parties.

BEST IN SHOWCASE

Comedian and Mullumbimby resident Greg Sullivan is a master storyteller, delivering unique insightful comedy that always has this ability to surprise you. He has such a casual style you just don’t see the punchlines coming. Greg is one of the featured comedians with the Sydney Comedy Festival Showcase coming to Byron Theatre. Why are showcases important? What kind of comedians are on board? A showcase is a great way of seeing a whole bunch of comics doing a distilled and concentrated version of their longer sets; it’s all killer no filler. Chris Ryan started comedy in her late thirties and is proof that women can do everything, working as a journalist, singer, running her own business, raising her two kids. Mike Goldstein is a Jewish/Sri Lankan/American/Australian who gave up being a lawyer in Perth to become a brilliant joke writer with a great laidback style. I really like Cam Knight despite his being almost unfeasibly handsome and cool. John Cruikshank looks like the typical Aussie tradie next door. Behind that Everyman look is a unique and surreal mind; his brain-spraining jokes are delivered with deadpan matter-of-factness. Shayne Hunter walks his talk. After becoming disillusioned with capitalism during the global financial crisis a young Shayne became a squat-living, dumpster-diving AntiFa activist. As a professional standup how do you push yourself to keep evolving with your stagecraft? Part of living a fulfilled and interesting life is to work on a problem you find interesting but you know you can never solve. My self-assigned task is to be a force for forgiveness, tolerance and non-violence through the medium of dick jokes. I don’t expect prizes and awards for this selfless work, just a very high income and people asking me for my autograph every now and then. Advice for new comics? Find a good accountant and psychiatrist. If you become successful you’ll need both of them; if you don’t become successful you’ll still need the psych. If you write good jokes, try to become a more relaxed and natural performer. If you’re naturally funny and relaxed onstage, work on writing better jokes. Try not to have contempt for your audience. Treat other comedians well, even if you don’t find them funny. They could get really good all of a sudden and it sucks to have a famous and powerful enemy. In the long run no-one can afford cocaine and it is quite moreish. Two shows at the Byron Theatre, Saturday at 5pm and 8pm. Tix at byroncentre.com.au Can Mark Swivel really become PM? How the hell could that ever happen? What would your Australia look like… what would you do with Scotty and Mal and Julie and Bill… It’s as likely as finding life on Pluto. But no-one at Sydney High whose classrooms I shared with ScoMo – I was in his older brother’s year – picked him as a likely PM. If I were unkind I’d call him a talentless trier but let’s face it, that works in many walks of Austrayan life. Let’s face it, Mandy, you’d make a better PM than ScoMo. To begin with you know more about economics than he and he’s been treasurer for three years. We would need a revolution for me to be PM. I’d govern based on building our common wealth; all the stuff we share. Government is boring, Mandy. Hard work and dull. I would get Bill, Julie, Scott and Mal to apply for jobs in Tasmania and see how they go. And Eric Abetz. It’d make great telly. So you are really running? Tell us about that… Yeah. We need senators more like us. Less like Anning, Hanson and especially Leyonhelm. When Mark Latham threatened to run again saying he’d save us from ‘political correctness, identity politics and anti-white racism’, I thought, ‘jeez I’m busy but I better have a crack’. … and the show? Expect songs, funnies, hula hoops. Answers to the questions like: What is politics about and what is class warfare, really? There’s also a sealed section with serious policies in it. Everyone gets to take them home written on a piece of foolscap. Old school. It’s lovely. Trust me. Mark Swivel’s Make Austraya Slightly Better than Average Again is on at the Drill Hall on Friday at 7.30pm and Sunday at 5pm. Tix $10 at the door or online at swiv.com.au.

CINEMA REVIEWS WORKING CLASS BOY

Jimmy Barnes, lead singer of the much-loved (by others) Cold Chisel, is something of an icon in the Australian music scene. Because I have never been a fan, I approached this doco with some misgiving, but I was quickly won over by it. It begins with Barnes recalling his early childhood in Glasgow, where he was born in the kitchen of the family’s cramped slum terrace. ‘I weighed fourteen pounds and came into the world screaming – and I’ve been screaming ever since,’ he says with a refreshing degree of self-deprecation. Archival footage of post-War Glasgow is horribly grim, and Barnes paints a depressing picture of growing up in an environment where deprivation, drunkenness and domestic violence were the norm – and not just in his house, but virtually the entire city. Things didn’t improve much when the family migrated to Australia where, after being accommodated in a hostel, they were eventually provided with a home in Elizabeth (Adelaide) – ‘I’d never played football on grass before’. The alcoholism of Barnes’s thuggish father remained unabated, however, and it ultimately led to his mother leaving him for another man – the ‘Dad’ from whom young Jimmy took his surname. It is the story of triumph over adversity and Barnes, in delivering

STARS BY LILITH

it, creates an easy rapport with the audience at Sydney’s State Theatre, where much of the film was shot. The punters lapped it up, but Barnes never quite descends into bathos. Interspersed with the personal narrative are songs performed by Barnes, including a beautiful take on the classic At the Dark End of the Street, with his daughter Mahalia (named after Mahalia Jackson) doing backup vocals, and, most surprising, a touching rendition of Around the World I Searched for You (I was relieved that Barnes never broke into Chisel mode). Interviews with wife Jane, son David Campbell, sister Linda, as well as Don Walker and Ian Moss, reveal a forgiving, a humble and thoroughly decent human being. And he’s a much better singer than I ever imagined.

SLENDER MAN The original Ring (1998) consolidated a new offshoot of the horror genre by having its malevolent spirit be conveyed through telephone messages and a TV. It was technology that hosted the enemy. More recently, the fiendishly clever and unsettling Unfriended (2015) built on that theme, with weird cyberspace as the protagonist – or, to paraphrase Marshall McLuhan, the medium was now the master. Here we have four teenage girls log on to a site that tells them about a phenomenon known as ‘slender man’, a mythical personage responsible for the disappearance of countless girls over the ages. They follow the prompts as instructed and, sure enough, one of them soon vanishes. Potential is there for a decent story, but it is smashed by an early and incessant deluge of cheap shots and overblown frighteners. Perhaps it’s because director Sylvain White’s background is mostly in television, where precision and brevity is of the essence, but you are just not allowed the tension build-up required to get really scared – and why else are you there?

ENTERTAINMENT

In hindsight, however, this might be exactly what White’s audience, addicted to instant gratification, wants anyway. Character development is non-existent and the whole point of the Slender Man’s existence is never really clear. Every five minutes or so, there is an incident meant to shock, but such regular jolts lead to a sense of heavy ennui. There are also far too many scenes in which you are meant to believe something is really happening until the potential victim wakes hysterical from a dream – which is the oldest trick in the book. Almost as hackneyed is the obligatory walk at night through the misty pine forest – and there is more than just one of that chestnut. If, as is suggested by the voiceover at the end, the movie is meant to be a cautionary tale intended to un-glue kids from their laptops, only a fool might think that it would anything other than counter-productive. Well executed, but dead boring, with far too much screaming.

VIGOROUS MARS IS ON THE MOVE AGAIN WHILE THE SUN IN EARTHY VIRGO SIGNALS TIME FOR WHAT THE I-CHING CALLS THE PREPONDERANCE OF THE SMALL…

ARIES: : This week’s Aries moon backed up by Mars in one of its most effective placements takes the brakes off recent delays and gets you back in the swing of things. No need to rush though, or ignore the small print. Take the time to check what conditions apply in policies, contracts and especially insurance.

TAURUS: The combination of this week’s sun and Mars both motoring forward in sturdy fellow earth signs revs the engines of the heavens into solid progress on stalled plans – finally! Though others may be exceptionally gung-ho in expecting a lot from you, make lateweek Taurus moon your own personal time out for recreational pleasures. GEMINI: Yes, people might seem nervy, moody mixtures of confusing signals – or is that you? Whatever, make the effort to listen up so you don’t miss conversational cues. See shakeups as the necessary fuel for changes that power this week’s cycle of lightening up, detoxing, and letting go unnecessary stuff, ideas, and connections. CANCER: As Mars comes alive again with recharged energy, the year’s most emotional full moon suggests you lunar sensitives might be most comfortable this week somewhere under the radar, either having a solo commune with your soul or in-depth heart-toheart with your nearest and dearest about future dreams and plans. LEO: Material-world, practical matters head up this week’s menu, which could include course corrections to credit arrangements, relationship rejigs or constructive adjustments to health routines. Keep these simple, uncomplicated and drama free, and you’ll find punctuality, good manners and attention to small courtesies all richly reciprocated. VIRGO: Happy birthday, Virgos, as the sun makes its annual tour of your organised, industrious sign. We salute you keepers of detailed knowledge as agents of analysis, diagnosis and critique, for knowing the bigger picture can’t last unless the smaller one’s in order first. Keep up your good work in service to the wellbeing of us all.

LIBRA: : This week ushers in changes that can be incorporated smoothly into current structures and routines without too much disruption. Small pleasures are plentiful, ditto little annoyances and irritations, but with people-pleasing Venus in your sign you can make anyone an ally. Limit spending to serviceable purchases and practical products. SCORPIO: As friendships warm up and ambitions get a boost, savvy Scorps will temper their agendas with diplomacy and invite rather than insist. Since we inevitably attract more of what we focus on, it’s essential this week to steer clear of obsessive mind loops and project a clear picture of your preferred outcome. SAGITTARIUS: As this week gains momentum, it’s clear that whatever vacated your life made space for new opportunities, different experiences. An old alliance could regain its shine via an interesting face-off between current needs and entrenched values. Note to self: Take care what you share with others – for good or ill it will boomerang back. CAPRICORN: Mars moving forward in Capricorn galvanises your mojo, while an unusually harmonious alliance between form-loving Saturn and rule-breaking Uranus supports successful restructuring within existing organisations. A great week for manifestation, which may include readjusting the terms of a friend/ money mix not presently working in your favour. AQUARIUS: When quirky Uranus, your personal planet, is retrograde that’s usually a pretty clear signal for restraint. As old patterns show up for resolution and integration, take this week’s changes gradually and gracefully – which doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with Mars at his earthiest and Venus in particularly frisky form. PISCES: The sun in Virgo, your opposite and complementary sign on the zodiac wheel, is a nourishing, nurturing time for Pisces. As well as being efficient, organised and disciplined, which means getting a lot done this week. Kind too, so someone going through a difficult time will deeply appreciate your help.

Just imagine their excitement when they can scratch in the grass, feel the sun on their fur, and be able to see more than four walls. Why not enjoy their delight and friendship by adopting one or both. All cats are desexed, vaccinated and microchipped.

Dickens wins double Lennox Head play Ballina Shores United again at the Oz titles in rugby major semifinal prepare for semifinals

Lennox Head’s Ben Dickens has repeated his double victory in 2017 with another flawless performance at Cabarita Point on the Tweed at the 2018 SAE Group Australian Surf Festival. Dickens was undefeated the whole event winning all his heats and dominating his competitors. He cloned his 2017 Australian Titles performance to go back-to-back in both the O/40s Men’s Logger Division and the O/40s Men’s Longboard Division. The ever-humble Dickens was stoked with his success and pleased to defend his titles. ‘I won the logging final in

the final five seconds. I was sitting in third position and a great wave came in with a very critical section at the start of the ride and I took a risk and went for it; that section was make or break and thankfully it was a make. ‘I focused on using the priority system to my advantage throughout the contest and I only caught a few waves each heat and made sure when I had first priority to select a good wave. ‘The pressure to defend my title was brutal and the competition was hard with great surfers but the waves were fun and it was a beautiful day for the finals with my young sons there to cheer me on,’ he said.

The Ballina Buccaneers and the Lennox Head Trojans will go head-to-head this weekend in far north coast rugby to decide who will play in the grandfinal against Wollongbar-Alstonville. The local derby was set up after Lennox Head had a convincing win over Byron Bay in the elimination semifinal 43–17 last Sunday. On Saturday Ballina lost to Wollongbar-Alstonville Pioneers 43–36, out scored six tries to five. The win put the Pioneers into the grandfinal playing the winner of this weekend’s local derby. The Pioneers are the competition’s minor premiers after losing just one game from 16 in the regular season.

They are also the competition favourites looking to win their fifth straight first-grade premiership in a row. The first grade game between Lennox and Ballina kicks off at 3.15pm at Crozier Field in Lismore.

Reserve grade The Byron Bay Rugby Club fared no better in reserve grade when their side went down to Mullumbimby Federal 32–17. The Lennox Head reserves played their way into the grandfinal beating Ballina 14–3. Ballina will play off against Mullumbimby Federal this Saturday from 1.50pm at Crozier Field for the right to play Lennox Head.

Shores United first and third division teams lost on the weekend but have an upcoming chance of redemption, while the U/15s will play for a place in the final this weekend. The Shores U/15 first division side have never been in a semifinal and have not beaten the Lismore Rovers all season. But that all changed on Saturday when they earned 3–1 victory that sees them through to the major semifinal this weekend. The first division Brown Snakes went down 1–0 to the Italo Stars and will need

to find a way to score goals in their upcoming semifinal against Tintenbar. Shores third division travelled to Byron Bay and came away second best in a penalty shootout after the fulltime scores was locked at 3–3. The Shores sixth division took on Woodburn at home and provided a fitting sendoff to club president Marc Patten, who played his last game. The Shores old boys won 7–1 through a highly organised pass-and-run game. The club has two home semifinals this weekend!

Local triathletes third in Ballina

Lyn Proudlock and Margaret Darby have claimed the open pairs championship at the Brunswick Heads Womens Bowling Club after beating Kerry Dexter and Lorraine McCormick 19–17 in the final. It was an extremely close game as Margaret and Lyn were leading by four on the last end, but Kerry and Lorraine were also holding four shots.

Monica Wilcox

It looked like a draw that would force a deciding end until Lyn used her last bowl to take out two of the scoring bowls giving her team a twoshot win. The win gave Lyn her first championship at the Club. In a semifinal for the Club’s triples championships Rosa Kinnear, Kerry Dexter and Lorraine beat Jenny Andrew, Marcia Crichton and Lyn Proudlock 22–15.

Eighteen clubs from Camden Haven (NSW) to Redcliffe (QLD) competetd in the Rainbow Region Dragon Boat Cub’s August regatta in Ballina that marks the start of the 2018/19 season. The Shaws Bay course started out in brilliant conditions on Saturday two weeks ago, but by Sunday afternoon the southwesterly winds

played havoc with the races. The ever-popular community teams competition was held early and they were off the water before it got hairy. The Kyogle Hillbillies have now taken out a trifecta of wins in this event, but this time they had the Dirty Dogs snapping very close on their heels. Queensland won the state-of-origin and Nambucca/Camden won the sport women’s event.

The owner of the Northern Star and Byron News has been called a lot of unpleasant things over the years, so when former PM Kevin Rudd called him the ‘greatest cancer on the Australian democracy’ on Monday, the US media mogul probably hardly flinched. He probably didn’t mind either when Mr Rudd said that, rather than running a news organisation he, ‘operates as a political party, acting in pursuit of clearly defined commercial interests, in addition to his far-right ideological world view’.
