Jack Charles’s story is surely the archetypal cinematic redemption trope. From heroin addict, petty thief, actor, prisoner, human rights activist, and mentor, Jack is now author of Born-again Blakfella. He had the Writers Festival audience in tears one moment, and in fits of laughter the next.

Phillip Frazer There were too many stars at last week’s Byron Writers Festival to mention, but let’s mention Melissa Lucashenko, for winning the Miles Franklin Prize two days before opening night, philosopher AC Grayling for drawing the biggest crowd, and all those African-Australian writers who introduced themselves so eloquently to the rest of us. Writers festivals are also political festivals; authors and readers leap into debate about the meaning of democracy or how many compromises can the Labor Party make in one week, or we enjoy the thrill of

shared outrage (TOSO) over Trump, Morrison, or the newest bloviator on the block, Boris Johnson. But there was a new twist to the vibe this year.

Activism arises Yes, every session still had one punter asking where they could find a morsel of hope – the word that kept popping up this year as we approach the demise of our species was activist, as in we-are-all-activists-now. Tim Costello, another old warrior, revealed that while writing his autobiography, he wrestled with the many labels that have been

pinned to his chest, right above the bleeding heart – crusader, politician, human rights champion, Jesus champion. He concluded that what he is, and always has been, is an activist. It could be that our recent election stunned jaded leftists into action and more broadly electrified those of us who care and fear for the planet. There’s an old lefty trope about encouraging the election of probusiness antisocial candidates, because it heightens the contradictions, meaning the worse it gets the more likely the masses are to rise up finally.

But my sense is that the shift is more among people who don’t consider themselves ‘political’. According to English writer Samuel Johnson, ‘Nothing concentrates the mind so wonderfully as knowing you are going to die next week’. He said that in 1756. Now, 2019 is shaping up to be the year in which a couple of billion of us realise that the planet could die in a couple of decades. Our minds are concentrated because, while it dishonours the Shire motto to say so, I reckon the masses at the Writers Festival don’t believe ‘This was meant to be’.

While protests continue around construction of the Butler Street bypass, Council staff have undertaken the large infrastructure project without a contamination report or providing proof that they have met requirements of L&E Court orders – as reported last week. Given Council staff have dismissed the public’s right to be informed of all the details required for the bypass project to be undertaken, The Echo asked Greens mayor Simon Richardson: ‘Why is this going ahead without these vital docs being made public? Given this undermines Council’s credibility, are you prepared to make this info available ASAP so the public have confidence that good process has been adhered to? While in opposition, you were very vocal about poor process. This is poor process, isn’t it?’ The mayor replied, ‘The works undertaken to date by the contractor are only within areas covered by the Part 5 Review of Environmental Factors and not by the Development Consent (LEC Condition)’.

Luis Feliu Acclaimed Mullumbimbybased composer and conductor Barrington Pheloung, who died early last Thursday morning aged 65, has been remembered as a much-loved and generous friend and colleague, especially in Byron Shire where he was involved in various church community activities and choirs. Barry, as he was affectionately known by family and friends, was best known for his theme music for the television series Inspector Morse, for which he was nominated for Best Original Television Music at the 1992 British Academy Television Awards. He also wrote the theme music for the BBC television series Dalziel and Pascoe. His film work includes the award-winning Hilary and Jackie, based on the life of renowned cellist Jacqueline du Pre, and he also composed music for the film Truly, Madly, Deeply, in which he also appeared (as a ghost). Barry also wrote music for the Sydney Opera House’s 20th

loved Byron Shire for the beach and surfing lifestyle he grew up with on Sydney’s northern beaches.

—şƷëō!şōōĕīĕşĪ lƖƆĶĈĪĕōōşƱ birthday celebrations. Born on 10 May 1954 in Manly, NSW, Barry began playing R&B guitar in nightclubs before discovering classical music through Bach in his late teens. He moved to London aged 18 to study guitar at the Royal College of Music as well as composition and conducting, spending much of his career in the UK. After working many years there, Barry moved with his young family in 2003 to a property he bought near Main Arm, where he continued composing as well as contributing to community life for local Catholic churches at Mullumbimby, Brunswick Heads, and Byron Bay.  He enjoyed his new life on the NSW north coast and

In March 2016, he returned to London to be awarded by Prince Charles for becoming a Fellow of the Royal College of Music where he was originally a student of guitar under maestros John Williams and Julian Bream. It was a special occasion, according to his wife Heather, who told The Echo he was ‘very proud’ to be recognised by his fellow colleagues, which for him was ‘the highest accolade’. Barry, who had a strong voice, attended and helped out at the historic small Catholic churches around the Shire, getting so much joy from his volunteer work and singing, as a tenor, with Mullum’s Amaroti Choir. For the most recent performance with the choir, Heather said they performed Vivaldi’s Gloria, and ‘nothing

made him prouder than having his daughter singing alongside him in the choir for this favourite piece of his’. Barry was also a cricket tragic and was eagerly looking forward to the current Ashes Test series to once again barrack for the Aussies. He was a full member of the prestigious MCC (Marylebone Cricket Club) and when in London often watched the Tests at Lords. Barry’s agent for his music production company DNA Music told www. classicfm.com that company staff were ‘utterly heartbroken’ by his death. ‘Some people just can’t help making a difference in our lives by simply being who they are. They make the world a little brighter, a little warmer, and a lot funnier. Barrington was one of these people,’ the agent said. Heather said Barry adored his family and was an extremely devoted father to his four children: sons Anthony, Danny, and Timmy and daughter Adel; who will ‘miss him dearly’.

!şŔŔƖŕĶƐƷDşşĎ şƶīĶĪƐĕĎƆşōëſżşƱĕſ Since they opened, an issue for the Mullumbimby Community Food Box has been the ability to keep fresh produce chilled. The group provides more than 1,300 low-income households in the Northern Rivers with quality food items, something that would be impossible without the help of refrigeration. Rising energy costs were threatening the future of the service, but thankfully the Food Box has been gifted a

5kW solar system. The business development manager from Greentec, Simon Ceglinski, asked Canadian Solar, Radiant Energy Solutions, and NSW-based solar installer 24 Hour Solar Power, who agreed to supply the Food Box with a solar system that will offset more than half of their power bill.

LĶīIJĕōĕĈƐſĶĈĶƐƷćĶōōƆ ‘When I heard the Food Box was struggling with rising energy costs, I knew

exactly how I could help,’ Ceglinski said. ‘My suppliers and customers are incredibly communityfocused and they jumped at the chance to get behind the project.’ Thanks to the donation, the 24 Hour Solar Power team installed a 5kW system on the roof of the Uniting Church in Mullumbimby in July. Co-founder of Mullumbimby Community Food Box Gillian Lomath OAM says that being gifted the solar system

will allow the group to continue providing affordable food for those who struggle financially. ‘It is priceless,’ she said. ‘We were struggling to pay our electricity bills and were really having to review if we could continue with the vital service’. The Mullumbimby Community Food Box is open every Thursday 9.30 till 11.30am at the Uniting Church on the corner of Jubilee Avenue and Whian Street, Mullumbimby.

Bruns surf club looks to expand Paul Bibby For 52 years, the Brunswick Heads Surf Club has stood, little changed, as countless storms and scorching summer days battered and bleached its fading walls. Now, after a decade of planning, lobbying, and fundraising, the life savers are within swimming distance of getting approval for a big, shiny new building that will change the spot forever. The development application (DA) for the multimilliondollar facility is expected to come before Council soon and the club is quietly hopeful that it will be approved. ‘We can see the finish line‌ we can almost reach out and touch it,’ says Ray Linabury, chairman of the club’s rebuilding committee.

‘Once Council approves our DA, we can access the funding from government and we’ll be off and running.’

Govt funding In the leadup to the March state election, the NSW coalition promised to fund the $3.8m rebuilding project in full, and it subsequently included the project in its June budget. This funding cannot be accessed until the DA is approved. The rebuild represents a total transformation of the site from a tiny, traditional surf club designed to house ropes and a couple of row boats to a multipurpose facility more than three-and-a-half times the size in terms of floor space. It will include a function area complete with commercial kitchen, bar areas,

training rooms, storage, canteen, cool rooms, and deck areas on the upper floor. ‘We are going to try to get into the wedding market,’ Mr Linabury says. ‘Byron Surf Club has two or three weddings in a weekend, and the income they generate allows for better facilities and equipment. ‘The club plays a key role in a number of community programs, events, and activities, all of which are funded through membership fees and fundraising. ‘If we can get a bit of extra income from hiring out the club, then it makes those activities that much easier,’ Mr Linabury says. But not everyone is in favour of the development in its current form. Some residents have

expressed reservations about the size of the new club. Others fear that the additional traffic generated by having large functions such as weddings will make it impossible to find parking, especially during the warmer months when hundreds already flock to the beach from across the Northern Rivers and beyond. Club president Craig Reid said every effort had been made to address community concerns. ‘We had a bit of an issue with the dog walkers being concerned that they wouldn’t be able to access the beach, which we’ve now rectified,’ he said. ‘This isn’t going to be a Gold Coast-style surf club, with heaps of alcohol and poker machines. ‘But we want to have a building that will serve the club and the community for the next 20 to 30 years. ‘We’ve got so little storage we’ve got members storing equipment, trailers, all kinds of stuff at their homes’.

Solving life’s intractable problems Aslan Shand Sometimes it feels like it is impossible to create change, move forward, or resolve a conflict. Now is a time of huge change, as the impact of humans on the planet stresses Earth’s support systems, creating a time of ‘unprecedented disruption,’ says Susanna Carman. Carman is a member of the Sourdough Business Women’s (SBW) leadership committee, and her group have been facilitating a local ‘hub’ for U Lab, which seeks to find new ways to resolve intractable problems and situations. These issues can be at all levels, from the personal and organisational to large-scale systems. The experiential course, developed by Otto Scharmer and his team from MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), looks at ways to give people the skills to lead themselves and teams in a time of disruption, says Carman. The U Lab course has been running on the EdX open learning platform since 2015, and over 120,000 people have

Volunteer facilitator for the U Lab hub 2019 Jennifer Lalor with Susanna Carman. Photo Jeff Dawson participated so far. Local ‘hubs’ are created where participants come together at regular intervals to engage in the course material and the broader network. Sourdough Business Women’s network has been facilitating a local ‘hub’ as part of the course for several years, and this year both men and women are able to participate. ‘This is the first time at this hub that we are opening it up to men’, explained Ms Carman. ‘We have prototyped it under the SBW network, and are now scaling this up around the Northern Rivers region so that people have a

structure around which they can address complex and intractable problems. ‘You can do it at three levels. The personal, team/ organisation/business development or with largescale initiatives that require multiple stakeholders. ‘It would be great if organisations and groups like local councils, business chambers, or youth services had a project they were working on that they could work on as part of this process.’ The U Lab approach is being used around the world at all levels to create change including by the Scottish government, who

are encouraging local governments and community directorates to use the U Lab approach to achieve transformation change. Having done the course several times herself, Ms Carman says, ‘It taught me to listen in a way that deepens my understanding of a challenge. To slow down and be curious rather than move into action straight away so that I could be more skilful and constructive when I’m leading in a situation where there is tension. When the tension can be diffused it is easier for everyone to be creative, imaginative, and collaborative.’

Vale Norma ‘Nu’ McCabe 1927–2019 Eve Jeffery Norma Reilly was born in Sydney on September 6, 1927, to Ada and Norman. The middle of three sisters, Margaret and Gwenda, Nu as she came to be known, lived a life revolving around her mother’s faith, their church, and the music within it. The girls became known as The Reilly Sisters, performing for many audiences, including regular radio appearances. Nu experienced life as a jillaroo and governess in outback Australia, and travelled the world as an air hostess with Ansett Australia. In Melbourne in the 50s, Nu met and married John McCabe. They began their family with Fiona, then Iain, Kathryn, and Rebecca. Unsatisfied with life in the city, John answered an ad for a lightkeeper on a remote island, and Nu packed up the family to embark on an isolated ‘lighthouse life’ on South Solitary Island. Nu took on the role of teacher to her four children, guiding them through schooling, via correspondence. Other lighthouse lives followed at Montagu Island, then eventually

Norma McCabe. Photo supplied Cape Byron. Nu took the opportunity to obtain her driver licence and got a position as a teachers’ aide at Byron Bay Primary School. This is where Nu really shone. She saw an opportunity to nurture the musical talent of the students and formed the successful and enduring Byron Bay School Choir. Nu joined musical and theatrical

groups. She made lifelong friends and enjoyed all that this beautiful area offered. After five years John, Nu, and their youngest daughter Rebecca moved to Point Perpendicular, where Nu made more wonderful friends and again worked at the local primary school forming another hugely successful school choir. Nu and John also immersed themselves in the art of Scottish country dancing. Following John’s retirement, they settled in Mullumbimby. Nu got involved with the CWA, the Music Makers, the Amatori Choir, the Seahorse Singers, Raise the Roof singers, and she remained deeply committed to the church. Scrabble was also a non-negotiable event at Nu’s house on a Wednesday afternoon. There were not many days on her calendar that did not include a service, a rehearsal, a show, or performance, and it remained so into her 90s – a life well lived. Nu died peacefully in her room at Byron Aged Care on July 29, 2019, aged 91 years.

Sumatran conservationist speaks Aug 18 World-renowned conservationist Panut Hadisiswoyo will speak in Mullumbimby on Sunday August 18 from 5pm till 8pm. Organisers say the founding director of the Orangutan Information Centre will share his work with OIC communications officer Nayla Azmi in a special interactive event at the Byron Community College, located at 8 Burringbar Street. The visit to the region is being supported by the Mullum-based Rainforest 4 Foundation, whose founder, Kelvin Davies has had a long association with the Orangutan Information Centre. Mr Davies said, ‘I met Panut in 2008 and I began building a connection between the people of North Sumatra and the Byron Shire.

Meet local scientists working for clean and sustainable oceans Eve Jeffery Local research duo Professor Jennifer Gidley and Earle de Blonville have just come back from the UN Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development, 2021–2030 conference in Nouméa, New Caledonia. Jennifer and Earle, who are partners at the Oceanic Research Institute (ORI), participated in the Pacific Community Workshop at the invitation of UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC). The IOC’s executive secretary – and UNESCO’s assistant director-general, Dr Vladimir Ryabinin, an oceanographer and climatologist, attended the Pacific Community Workshop to provide valuable guidance and inspiration. Held at the Pacific Community (SPC) headquarters in Nouméa, the workshop hosted about 100 participants from the South Pacific region. The event focused on six main societal outcomes: a clean ocean, a healthy and resilient ocean, a predicted ocean, a safe ocean, a sustainably harvested and

productive ocean, and a transparent and accessible ocean. ORI participated in both the Pacific Community media workshop and the main UN Decade workshop over a four-day period, and held meetings with key leaders and officials over three additional days.

'ĶǔĕſĕŕƐŕëƐĶşŕƆ The main concern for the group is that each Pacific nation is in a different situation, and has to deal with different problems. ‘Kiribati is already going under and has lost several islands,’ says Earle. ‘They are slowly losing everything they need to survive. ‘Fiji has mountainous islands and is safer because of it, but its economy would be devastated with another major storm. And with the ocean fast heating up, this will mean storms of greater intensity.’ Earle says the group has a positive outlook for the future. ‘The Pacific nations realise that they are of the Ocean, understand the Ocean, and can act globally to save their homes,’ he said.

IOC Executive Secretary Dr Vladimir Ryabinin with professor Jennifer Gidley and Earle de Blonville in Nouméa. Photo supplied

‘They also realise that their “large neighbours” have failed them, and the global environment, by refusing to give up coal. ‘We all know who the “large neighbours” really are. ‘The Pacific nations now have a realistic outlook and a very strong voice.’

Unique and valuable role ORI says they will have a unique and valuable role during the UN Decade of Ocean Science, operating the only long-range research

fleet in the South Pacific. NSW does not have any oceangoing research vessels or any offshore research capacity. As an independent organisation and an Australian Government approved Research Institute, ORI is the only such organisation in Australia. ORI, based in the BallinaByron area, operates globally in under-researched and climate-sensitive regions, and plans to head a fleet of three research expedition vessels (REVs), traditional wooden sailing vessels specially adapted to Pacific conditions. The fleet will be

based in Ballina, and outside the Pacific’s six-month ‘safe season’ will undertake research voyages closer to home, including offering school students the experience of Science Under Sail. Earle says there will need to be many more meetings with the individual nations to build relationships and scope out the science programs. ‘Our research expeditions, run over the UN Decade for Ocean Science, will mean close collaboration with many stakeholders.

Long-range ſĕƆĕëſĈIJȞǖĕĕƐ ‘The fact that we will have the only long-range research fleet in the Pacific means we will be extremely busy. ‘This is why we are asking for major funding support to enable this consultative process to be undertaken before the UN Decade begins.’ Jennifer and Earle say ORI’s role in the UN Decade of Ocean Science, collaborating with Pacific nations while representing Australia, is expected to bring inward investment and sustainable employment opportunities to

the Northern Rivers and make this region Australia’s Pacific Hub for Ocean Research and help develop the new industry of Science Tourism. The pair say they came away with a powerful feeling of respect for the intelligence, professionalism, commitment, and strength of the Pacific islanders. ‘Tony Abbott’s famous patronising and racist putdown of them indicating he viewed them as poor helpless natives, misses the point,’ says Earle. ‘These people are in fact a decade ahead of Australia in awareness and have extremely good leadership. Our belief is that the world will soon see them as the ocean leaders and Australia will be left behind. ‘They see themselves as fighting for their very existence with Australia fighting to avoid responsibility. ‘Unlike Australia, there are no climate deniers in the Pacific. Denial is the mask of fear of change, a middle-class position. The Pacific islanders are not people who are afraid’. Q To find out more visit www.oceanicresearchinstitute.org.

Local News Mullum High welcomes Principal Armstrong Mullumbimby High School’s Greg Armstrong has commenced his new role as principal seven weeks ago, and he says the response from the school community has been overwhelmingly positive. Greg says he spent much of his first week out in the playgrounds, talking to students, getting to know their names, asking about their views on school life, their likes and dislikes, their concerns and aspirations. He says, ‘This is a school with a very large and warm heart. I feel that everyone is ready for ongoing improvement and willing to do the hard work to ensure it is effective.’ Students asked if he was going to be strict. Greg replied: ‘Yes I am if it means ensuring our school is safe and every student is engaged in learning.’ In a rapidly changing world Greg says he’s determined to put students at the centre of every decision made in the school, teaching resilience, resourcefulness, collaboration, and self-regulation. ‘I have a vision for a school where student

Bypass Biodiversity Destruction Part 4

Former mayor Jan Barham queries State Government role The Byron Bypass will destroy a section of SEPP 14 wetland and will impact on the critically endangered Mitchell’s Rainforest Snail. A NSW assessment of the viability of this species identifies that it is unable to withstand further loss of habitat.

The BSC EIS 2016 reference to the rail corridor route doesn’t identify the previous finding of it as the preferred route (1998) when the current route was deemed too ecologically damaging.

Despite this, the bypass has been approved through a series of processes, including an environmental impact statement (EIS) and a biobanking application. It was approved by the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH), the JRPP, and the Land and Environment Court.

Improve and maintain standard

But doubt has been raised by local ecologist Mr Milledge about the potential for a Nationally Critically Endangered Threatened Ecological Community (TEC), Lowland Rainforest, to occur in the bypass route. The applications for approval did not recognise the rainforest and didn’t survey in that area and therefore didn’t assess the impact or allow for rainforest offsets. However, a 2017 BSC map does identify this area as Subtropical Rainforest. A request was made for permission for an independent assessor to conduct a flora survey but Byron Council has refused, twice. When Council advised of its refusal it noted that OEH did not support the new survey either. This is strange as the suggestion for the survey was made by an OEH officer on a site inspection with David Milledge and me in June. The OEH has a core priority, enshrined in the Threatened Species Act, ‘to conserve threatened species, populations, and ecological communities of animals and plants’. For biobanking assessment, the OEH role involves consultation with applicants and, ‘this includes avoiding or minimising impacts through relocating or reconfiguring development’. When OEH was asked about consultation for relocation / reconfiguration of the route, they stated they supported the BSC route preference. In fact, they advised they weren’t aware of the previous ‘Preferred Route’ (1998) in the rail corridor. However, Butler Street Community Network did make the OEH aware of the alternate route, prior to approval.

The bypass Biobanking approvals in Dec 2015, supposedly, followed a rigorous assessment by the OEH in accordance with the Threatened Species Act. Assessments for the bypass are meant to ensure the ‘improve or maintain’ standard that underpins Biobanking. The survey request is to clarify if rainforest is present and essential for the ‘improve and maintain’ and the ‘like for like’ offsets to be determined. The BSC application for biobanking included information from old surveys dated 1996/97 and 2001. A request to OEH for the old surveys revealed they didn’t have copies. The current bypass application only did two days of surveys and not in the area where there is doubt about the presence of rainforest. When OEH was questioned if they knew there was mapping that defined an area within the footprint as subtropical rainforest, they revealed that they had not seen the map. In fact, NO BSC maps were included in the applications. OEH was provided Mr Milledge’s detailed review of the Biobanking process, but refused to provide a written response. It’s clear there is doubt, but disturbing that neither BSC nor OEH want to investigate further to clarify the likely presence of Lowland Rainforest. The Department of Planning is responsible for SEPP 14 areas and required the application to address Principle 10 of the NSW Wetlands Policy, which states: ‘Natural wetlands should not be destroyed or degraded. If social or economic imperatives in the public interest result

Above: Floodplain rainforest vegetation that will be destroyed. Left: The endangered Mitchell’s Rainforest Snail.

in a wetland being degraded or destroyed, the establishment and protection of a wetland offset that supports similar biodiversity and ecological functions will be needed.’ It’s for this reason the clarification regarding the presence of the Lowland Rainforest is necessary, otherwise the offsets may be inadequate for the destruction.

NSW State of the Environment Report – Decline The recently released NSW State of the Environment Report 2018 identifies ‘The continuing overall decline in native fauna diversity is owing to the cumulative impact of vegetation clearing and fragmentation, habitat degradation and invasive species’. It’s perplexing that both our council and the state agency are so confident with their processes but unwilling to allow an additional survey to check biodiversity values prior to destruction.

The rainforest doubt deserves checking Our local MP Tamara Smith has raised bypass biodiversity and rainforest concerns with the state ministers. If you are concerned, please contact Tamara so she can pursue the matter further with the Government. Contact: electorateoffice.ballina@parliament.nsw.gov.au

as their members desire. ‘They have money available for purchasing inventory items but no more room to house them’. She is calling out to Mullum landholders for a space to set up a large shed of 21m x 7m. ‘We are also very happy to utilise an existing building if a suitable one were to be offered.

A life of slavery – sorry, ‘stolen wages’ – under QLD’s Aboriginal ‘Protection’ Act

02 5555 6990

Mia Armitage People talk about work/life balance – especially people who move to the Northern Rivers looking for less work and more balance (naked yoga, anyone?). But imagine working twelve hours a day, seven days a week. Now imagine you don’t get paid at the end of each week – or ever. Not for some passion project or creative mission, mind. All for the gain of a cattle station owner – and, it turns out, the government. Sound like slavery? ‘It was coming to that point,’ says eighty-year-old Hans Pearson, the lead claimant in a class action of former QLD Indigenous workers against the QLD government. ‘We were supposed to go to Brisbane on the Wednesday,’ says Mr Pearson from his home in north QLD. But he says lawyer John Bottoms rang Tuesday saying, ‘You don’t have to go now, mate, it’s all hunky dory, I think they gave in’. Mr Pearson says he thinks government representatives ‘Changed their tune’ when the idea of slavery emerged in the past year in relation to decades of stolen wages in QLD in mid last century. Hans Pearson spent the first three years of his life in The Cape Bedford mission on Cape York. ‘Our superintendent was a German pastor, Mr Schwartz’, he says. ‘Australia was fighting the Germans and the Japanese at the time’. Mr Pearson says the government didn’t trust Mr Schwartz or the Indigenous people under his legal care. Mr Schwartz went to a prisoner-of-war camp in Sydney and the federal government moved all four or five hundred Indigenous people living on The Cape Bedford mission to Woorabinda, west of Rockhampton. At the age of fourteen, Mr Pearson put up his age and started work mustering cattle. He says there were 17 or 18 cattle stations on Cape York and drovers would muster wild cattle using tame cattle to lure them. Then the stockmen

would herd the whole lot down south inland to the Mareeba sale yards. Conditions on cattle stations were ‘rough as guts,’ says Mr Pearson. He says tucker wasn’t ‘the best’ and Indigenous workers often slept on dirt floors, starting work around 6am and finishing twelve hours later. One day, Mr Pearson learned he was supposed to have been receiving pocket money of around a pound per week. He managed to get permission and enough money to visit his sick uncle on Palm Island, where he met the love of his life, Annamay. Annamay hadn’t had an easy life either, having spent fourteen years in a ‘dormitory’ – an orphanage – on Palm Island after her mother died, leaving several children behind. Hans and Annymay worked on cattle stations in Cape York for the next five years; Hans out on the land mustering cattle and Annymay carrying out domestic chores. Eventually, their boss said they were good workers and deserved to be exempted from QLD’s Aboriginal Protection Act 1869. The Act was what allowed the government to confiscate Indigenous worker wages under the promise the money was being kept for when workers retired.

Home ownership dream destroyed by stolen wages Annamay had little education but Mr Pearson says she was ‘always good with numbers’. She calculated that after ten years working under the Act, her husband had accumulated more than seven thousand pounds in wages. The couple moved to Innisfail and chose a house. At the time – 1964 – Mr Pearson says you could buy a house for around five thousand pounds. When the sergeant of Innisfail called to say Mr Pearson’s wages had arrived from the government, Mr Pearson says he was ‘over the moon’. But when Mr Pearson went to collect his wages, he received 28 pounds. He says he couldn’t believe it but the sergeant said, ‘That’s all there is’ and that was that. He and Annamay were devastated. ‘My wife was crying,’ he says.

Govt eventually pays, 50 years late But they never gave up hope and one day Annamay met a lawyer. John Bottoms kept their case on file and eventually called about a class action. The case was settled out of court in early July, with more than ten thousand Indigenous former workers

agreeing to accept $190 million in stolen wages. Mr Bottoms says similar cases are developing quickly in other states, including Western Australia and South Australia. Mr Pearson says he is grateful and hopes the next generation of Indigenous people have access to the education and career choices he and Annamay never had.

A policy of gloating, slogans, and wedges The Byron Shire Echo Volume 34 #09 • August 7, 2019

Armchair activism What does activism look like? Extinction Rebellion targeted Rupert Murdoch’s Newscorp empire in Brisbane last week for its ‘active role in spreading disinformation and lies to the public about the climate crisis’. While this is one strategy to confront outdated paradigms that serve only the one per cent, there are also others. For example, how many protesters who tried to shut Brisbane down on Tuesday were wearing suits? Confusion is a key way to grab attention, if that’s your goal. But if the bigger-picture goal is the advancement of all the planet’s species living in a stable atmosphere, here are a few pointers gleaned from last weekend’s Writers Festival. Many of the big drawcard authors ran with similar themes as to why democracy and politics are in trouble. Kerry O’Brien told the audience at his autobiography book launch that factions within the mainstream political system do not promote the best people for the job. So to get the best people in charge, factions should be scrapped. Meanwhile, former Labor PM Kevin Rudd called for an inquiry into US citizen Rupert Murdoch’s massive newspaper and broadcast empire’s influence. ‘There was 95 per cent anti-Labor coverage for the last election, across all the cities’, he said. ‘It’s a cancer on democracy’. He also let loose on former Labor colleagues after being asked why calls to investigate Crown Casino allegations are being ignored by his party. ABC’s Four Corners reported allegations of money laundering, breaching immigration law, and prostitution. Rudd said former Labor MP Mark Arbib and another former Labor MP now work for James Packer, owner of Crown. ‘Packer has insulated himself from scrutiny,’ he said. And that’s just former Labor MPs – there are also willing former coalition MPs wanting a piece of the gambling pie. So we need much tougher laws around conflicting political ties with big business. It’s a similar sentiment that UK philosopher AC Grayling spoke of when discussing the shaky ground democracy finds itself on. ‘Democracy is in trouble because politics is a career, not a service,’ he said. ‘To be influential, you need to be attached by the head to the buttocks of the next person up the greasy pole. [Political] party discipline erodes representative democracy. This is why we don’t trust them’. Also, limiting political terms may well inspire better governance. Another remarkable weakness in democracy Grayling mentioned is that political decisions lack oversight – governments essentially act as the self-appointed judge and jury over much of their conduct. Clearly democracy clearly needs better-funded watchdog institutions to make sure those elected aren’t overtly rorting the system. It may help in providing much needed integrity within local government for example, whereby Council and the state government are undertaking a massive, questionable bypass project while also being the oversight authority. Being both a consent authority and oversight authority erodes public trust and confidence. Hans Lovejoy, editor

ewspoll has emerged from its grotto and ScoMo’s troops are cheering. The honeymoon has kicked in, and how. Their messiah has given them a convincing cushion, one that should maintain them in comfort for many months, if not years. Forget those constant predictions of doom and gloom that their bible warned of in the past – those were all wrong. This time the truth has been revealed. Break out the bubbly. Well, they may be right – there is little doubt that the election has put the coalition on top, and Morrison at the very summit. Whether the punters are really celebrating, or simply relieved that the whole ghastly business is over for three years (barring, of course, deaths, defections and by-elections) may be questioned, but who cares. The point is that their man has assumed an unlikely dominance, an authority to do just about anything he likes. It’s just a pity that he actually does not want to do anything much except gloat, sloganeer, and create wedges for his opponents. A serious politician – dare one suggest a statesman – would use the opportunity for a real agenda of reform. He could transform the tax system rather than simply handing out loot for his mates. He could move on energy, finally merging economics and science in genuine action on both power prices and climate change. He could fix the health system, ending the death spiral of private insurance to provide an effective national system. He could move decisively to end the cruelty Peter Dutton inflicts on Nauru and Manus. He could even embrace the Uluru Statement From the Heart and take a decisive step towards the great goal of reconciliation. And those are just for starters. That would be the approach of a real prime minister with guts and vision – a Gough Whitlam, a Bob Hawke, a Paul Keating, even a John Gorton. But of course ScoMo won’t, because he is not a real prime minister. He is a failed tourism marketeer who ended up as a political apparatchik as second best, and then schemed and manoeuvred himself to become what even he tacitly admitted was an accidental leader. He is the apex – or rather the nadir – of a process by which Australian politics has collapsed to its lowest ebb in living memory, a power game devoid of

principle and concentrated solely on winning at all costs – what Graham Richardson called ‘whatever it takes.’ It was not always thus. There was a time not all that long ago when the vast majority of candidates for office stood because they really believed they could serve the national interest. Many if not most were genuinely idealists, hoping their high-minded ideas could lead to policies that could enhance the wellbeing of a country they cherished.

Australian politics has collapsed to its lowest ebb in living memory Mungo MacCallum Inevitably, the hard slog of realpolitik chewed up and spat up a large number; the long climb up the greasy totem poll from branch meetings to cabinet rank turned them world weary and cynical – playing the game became an end in itself. But the survivors were men and women of substance. And they survived at least partly because they had wider horizons than their party rooms. They did not see themselves as cradle-to-grave politicians – people who had dabbled in other jobs designed primarily to advance their own interests. They worried about policy more than politics. It is worth remembering that the founder of the modern Liberal Party, the sainted Robert Menzies, was acutely aware of the distinction between the elected members of the parliament and the backroom machine men. Indeed, he made it a cardinal rule to block pre-selection from those who sought to breach the divide. In the cricketing parlance he loved, there were the gentlemen – the amateurs willing to face the risks and rewards of office – and the players, the professionals who staffed the organisational wing. But when he left, the walls were broken down – nowadays a year or two in the backroom is considered the norm, a step towards the leather benches in Canberra rather than an impediment. And so we have ended up with Scott John Morrison, the ultimate hollow man.

Of course we can’t go back to the Menzies era, and only the terminally nostalgic and delusional would want to. But political progress needs to be tempered with caution and wisdom if it is not to be swamped by what is now known euphemistically as unforeseen consequences and collateral damage. The most obvious of these consequences has been not the internet, the social media that have become a convenient scapegoat for just about everything, but the rise of the leeches and parasites who rode on the back of the changed environment – the pollsters, the spinners, the touts and spivs who thrive on one-liners, gotcha moments, and gutter-trawling masquerading as research to offer what they call revelations of character – usually hopelessly out of context and invariably long out of date. This has demeaned not only Australian politics but the basis of elected government to the extent that a growing section of the population is querying the worth of democracy itself. And as the demands for a strong leader to cut through the checks and balance of the Westminster system increase, mountebank politicians like Morrison and Dutton respond with enthusiasm. They revel in the idea that they can bypass the cabinet, the party, the parliament itself. They force through authoritarian measures in the name of the catch-all of national security and assume untrammelled power in their personal fiefdoms. And all of this to a well orchestrated chorus from the backbench of ‘on the side of Australians’ – a trope so derisory that even The Australian found it risible. And in this case Newspoll is part of the problem. And of course it is utterly meaningless. Asking the punters whom they would vote for next week when they are still getting over the last election can only elicit the response: come back and ask us in 2022. The only thing that can be elicited from last week’s figures is that most people have not yet had time to get pissed off with Morrison, and either don’t know or don’t care about Anthony Albanese. That is, if the polling is even believable – a highly dubious proposition after the fiasco of May 18. And making it headline news in the national daily only demonstrates what a travesty our democracy has become. Australian politics is no longer a contest of ideas – it is a game show.

I recently had my granddaughter aged seven visiting from interstate. As we slowly forged our way into Byron the voice from the back says ‘Nan, are we in Paris?’ A bit perplexed I asked her why she thought that. She replied, ‘I think we just passed the Eiffel Tower’. I think as a landmark it was also controversial in its day! Karen Fulton Fernleigh

Adani and Byron In response to Tom Tabart’s concerns (Letters July 24), relating to GHD and their potential contracting with Adani. This council passed an anti-Adani motion on November 23, 2017 that means that any company with links to Adani is not eligible for Council business. So should GHD start working with Adani, they will no longer be able to work for Council. Perhaps the relentless focus on the negative can mean you miss some of the positive things going on.

Drugs, festivals & ... Your indignation seems only to be exceeded by your ignorance on this one, Paul Dixon (Letters July 24). Read Chasing the Scream by Johann Hari, or anything by the Global Commission on Drug Policy (GCDP), who said that the ‘global war on drugs has failed, with devastating consequences for individuals and societies around the world’, and advocates decriminalising drug use by those ‘who do no harm to others’. The luminaries who make up the GCDP are too numerous to name, but include former world leaders (11 presidents, three prime ministers and one deputy prime minister), a former secretary-general of the UN, a former UN high commissioner for human rights, a former US secretary of state and former chairman of the Federal Reserve, and the director-general emeritus of the International Atomic Energy Agency. Between them, they hold four Nobel peace prizes and one for literature. The GCDP was formed to ‘bring to the international level an informed, sciencebased discussion about humane and effective ways to reduce the harm caused by drugs to people and societies’. That is, through detailed study and analysis of the existing information and data from a wide variety of fields, including medical, criminal, financial, security, health, and social justice.

our dog to the ground; the force pulled her onto the road. Many people tried to help but the bulldog would not unleash its grip on her. The owner, an inebriated, transient person with two unregistered, unleashed dogs left the scene and went into the national park. A kind person drove us home so that we could take our dog to the vet. Luckily she survived with 10 puncture wounds over her throat and upper body. Only the day before, our guest’s dog was attacked on Brunswick Heads beach and also required vet treatment. What it is going to take for Byron Shire Council, the police, and National Park rangers to take control of the feral dogs and owners? The council say they are not allowed to go into the national park without the police. Yet what are dogs doing in the national park in the first place? It is a wellknown issue with Council and I assume the police; it needs urgent addressing before a catastrophic situation occurs. Thank you to everyone who helped, especially Rachel who drove us home.

‘Look at the trees’ Surfing in Byron Bay is definitely a bucket list activity for any visitor. My enthusiasm, however, was not matched by skill so I needed to find a school that would get me to, if not stand on a board, at least float on one. Along came Dave my surf instructor, yet the lesson I took away from my wonderful experience was much more than learning to surf. It was that language and surf are connected and there is power in the way we communicate and use expressions to help one another. Dave wasn’t just a master of the board but of language. He articulated difficult instructions so that the more challenged of our group (aka me) could grasp the basics. From ‘make the shape of a banana’ to ‘now bend like ▶ Continued on page 18

Letters CHESS

by Ian Rogers Since Luis Sanchez Botella came to Australia almost two years ago to conduct engineering work at Sydney’s new and controversyplagued Northern Beaches Hospital, he has become a regular feature on the Australian tournament scene. The 30-year-old FIDE Master has enjoyed limited success, his best result being a tie for first at the NSW Rapid Championship, but last week he completed one of the best performances of his career by winning Canberra’s ANU Open. Over a quarter of a century the ANU Open has hosted most of Australia’s top players, maintaining its status as the ACT’s second ranking tournament (after the O2C Doeberl Cup). This year top seed Junta Ikeda was widely predicted to add his name to the winners’ list for the second time but the top seed was upset by Michael Kethro in the fourth round and Sanchez saw his chance, knocking over Kethro the following day. The critical game of the tournament came in the sixth round

For North Coast news online visit when Ikeda took on Sanchez, with only a win good enough for the top seed. Playing Black in the diagrammed position Sanchez had been desperately hanging on to a bad endgame and had he found 45...Bd5!! 46.Kxd5 a3, the game would have been safe since both sides queen their pawn and White’s last pawn can be eliminated. Instead after the immediate 45...a3? Ikeda had a chance to win the game with 46.c7!, and if 46...Be6 47.Kxe6 Black has no time to eliminate pawns because 47...axb2 is simply met by 48.Be4. However, it took only one automatic capture in time trouble, 46.bxa3? for Ikeda’s chances for victory to disappear. After 46...bxa3 47.c7 Be6! 48.Kxe6 a2 49.c8(Q) a1(Q) White had no chances to win with queen and bishop against queen, though Ikeda tried until move 68 before conceding a draw.

After this narrow escape, Sanchez drew his final game to take outright first place and the $1,000 first prize. a

Resistance to Byron bypass continues Q Whether the bypass

works are ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ is still a live issue. But one impasse in particular must be addressed. According to media reports, Joshua Winters at Council says that Hazell Brothers are in charge; but the contractors say the council is in charge. Nowhere is there leadership from councillors. In this hiatus mistakes will happen. The felling of the cypress pine is one early example. What is urgently required onsite are adaptive managers and advocates for the needs and concerns of biodiversity, residents, and protectors. Where justified, they must have the power to halt and adapt works as required. Can there be less destruction? Adaptive managers and advocates must take an inventory of important trees and plants lost and find a way to replant that species nearby. Well ahead of any more works, adaptive managers must comb the sites searching for animal and bird life. Works must accommodate day-to-day needs of animals, rescues and of biodiversity that must be part of the site plan moving forward. Dr Mary Gardner Byron Bay Q Jan Barham’s belated

ecology-based offensive against the bypass has its uses – including embarrassing the pretenders that have trashed the Greens’ credibility – but it’s a bit like locking the stable door after the horse has bolted. The crucial vote to go ahead with the bypass occurred in December

2017 and by that time over $1m had already been spent on legals, development application (DA) preparation and staff time etc Jan was M.I.A. The only councillor who’s taken an active step to change the situation was Councillor Spooner, who a couple of years ago moved to get a costing on using the rail corridor; he was unsuccessful. Basil wouldn’t let go of his vote-winning fantasy that trains would return. If he hadn’t opposed the use of the rail corridor we might now have had a bypass we could live with. Jan missed two important points in relation to ecology. Firstly, if the ‘biobanking’ process allows the use of already-protected wetlands as an offset against destroying other wetlands, then biobanking is clearly fraudulent. However, it may be Council that is using a credible process fraudulently; I don’t know enough to decide. The second is that oncerespected ecologist Dailan Pugh is on record saying that compensatory wetlands should be contiguous, not separate parcels as currently proposed for the bypass. Jan says Council hasn’t released proof that the bypass environmental consent conditions have been met. In public access a few months ago I asked Ralph James if he was prepared to release documents proving that the council’s requirements have been met. His ‘reply’ waffled on about documents Council had filed in the court case. My question related to what documents

Q In 1923, a relatively

unknown but soon-to-be infamous young man wrote, ‘To fight against nature is to bring about one’s own destruction’ (Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler). Our so-called progressive Greens council appears to be regressing to a time when fascism was fashionable. At what point did Greens voters agree to jackbooted stormtroopers dragging away innocent, peaceful citizens, by the throat, from a legitimate protest? Do Simon Richardson and his minions condone this utterly despicable abuse of our freedom to disagree, our democracy? A freedom that has historically set Byron Shire apart from the usual intimidating conservative agenda. The Butler Street bypass debacle has dragged the level of governance and confidence in Council to an all-time low. Our very beige ‘Greens’ degrade the hard-won values of the established green movement and threaten to blur the voting public’s vision

of the integrity of our state and federal Greens. ‘Slow Down, Cheer Up, Chill Out’ – I don’t think so. More like, ‘Pay Up, Shut Up, Dodge the potholes’. Paul Finnegan Broken Head Q I see that well-meaning

people with little understanding of the history of Greens council involvement are calling for peace in our time. There is also some criticism of The Echo that it is supposedly unfairly attacking the mayor and his palershade-of-green disciples. There does not seem to be much support for them from the 200-odd Greens party members who do not attend meetings that are run as a rubber stamp for the mayor’s ‘vision’. Founding (1993) members of the Byron Greens, including those who served on Council and in parliament, have been completely sidelined by the current councillors, who prefer selfserving staff reassurance to experienced advice. Over the years The Echo has provided the support that has been critical for green and other progressive councillors to limit the impact of rampant development which we now see being advantaged. It is one thing to lose an election or have one stolen by defection; it is much worse to see those in whom you have put your trust betray your legacy. All power to The Echo for their efforts to hold the line. Tom Tabart Co-founder Byron Greens

Up to a century ago there was a 1,400ha lake and wetlands in the heart of Byron Bay. It would have been teeming with fish, prawns, and waterbirds. Every now and again during storms it would breach the sandbar across its mouth and its waters would rush out to sea, filling the bay with its fish and prawns. These waterbodies are called Intermittently Closed and Open Lakes and Lagoons (ICOLLS). Belongil used to be one, but Council has progressively drained it, making it into a polluted outlet for the West Byron Sewerage Treatment Plant (STP). At first farmers began opening its mouth to drain the water so they could clear the wetlands for farming. Soon the town of Byron Bay began to be built where it had been. While once the waters would rise up to 2.6m above mean sea level, Council decided to open it whenever it reached 1.2 metres to stop flooding of the growing town, reducing the size of the lake down to 120ha.

A toxic legacy Over the millennia of the lake’s existence a toxic legacy had accumulated in its depths. When it had opened seawater would intrude and, aided by bacteria, sulfates from the seawater reacted with iron-rich sediments and organic matter to form iron sulfides (pyrite). As the lake was drained over the last 100 years iron sulfides were exposed to air, causing them to oxidise and produce sulfuric acid. This is how the acid sulfate soils (ASS) have been created here. As sulfuric acid moves through the soil, it dissolves iron, aluminium, and heavy

At high levels these can all have toxic effects on fish and invertebrates, and can be lethal. Runoff of nutrients and pollutants from agricultural land, urban and industrial areas, and the STP have compounded these problems.

The oxidising of dissolved iron in the acidic runoff, particularly when it reaches seawater, is one cause of deoxygenation. The rusted iron may precipitate and smother plants and the streambed. This has been attributed as the ultimate cause of the March fish kill when the Belongil was opened. Other causes include the oxidisation of organic material resulting from decay of nutrient-induced algal blooms and the flooding and killing of inundation-intolerant vegetation (ie pasture). Stratification of standing water likely played a significant role in the recent Tallow Creek fish kill as oxygenated surface waters ran out when Council opened it, leaving deoxygenated bottom waters behind. For our ICOLLs oxygen levels plummet and fish kills primarily occur during artificial opening events when there is insufficient rain to dilute runoff, stir waters, and provide fresh oxygenated waters.

Degrading Belongil The most effective means of restoring the health of the Belongil would be to restore the lake to stop oxidisation of the lake sediments and to replace inundationintolerant pastures with water-tolerant species.

Because of development in the catchment, restoring natural water levels is not feasible. In a perverse move in 2001 Council decided to reduce the opening height for the Belongil ICOLL from 1.2m down to 1.0m as an ‘interim’ measure. This further reduced the size of the remnant lake by 70 per cent down to 34ha, its volume by 30 per cent, and reputedly increased overall drainage of waters in the catchment by 90 per cent. The rationale for lowering the opening to below the highest tide level was to convert the remnant ICOLL into an open estuary to allow increased marine incursions to improve water quality and reduce fish kills. Though the exposure of a further 86ha of the lake sediments, extensive drainage of surrounding soils and increased tidal influences will have significantly increased oxidisation of the soil, acidic runoff and pollution of the Cape Byron Marine Park.

Council’s failed process exposed The reduction in estuarine habitat and draining of statesignificant wetlands initiated major ecological and habitat changes. Council should have prepared an environmental impact statement (EIS) before doing this, but instead the government allowed it to continue under a series of interim licences while the required assessments were undertaken and an estuary opening strategy (EOS) prepared. A draft EOS was prepared in 2005 and subjected to a Review of Environmental Factors, which identified that the multiple environmental impacts are highly significant and warranted preparation of a species impact statement and EIS.

Not wishing to be denied, Council then commissioned a review of water quality in 2007, which also criticised the reduction on the basis it was likely to increase pollution from ASS and violated the precautionary principle. Since then Council has continued openings at one metre while they prepared a new EOS. Eighteen years after the height was lowered the new EOS was released for public comment in June, again proposing continuing openings at 1m. The review was superficial and did not bother to undertake an analysis of the decades of monitoring data or undertake an impact assessment.

Acid sulfate soils Rather than improving water quality, it is evident that reducing the opening height has compounded ASS problems and increased pollution of the Cape Byron Marine Park. Reducing fish kills would be better achieved by modifying the estuary opening process to coincide with periods of high rainfall, and siphoning out water to lower it at other times. Despite the advice of significant environmental impacts, and the need to address catchment issues to improve the health of the estuary, our supposedly ‘Green’ Council has deliberately continued to knowingly cause significant environmental harm while they obsessively pursue the reduced estuary opening height.

Time to adapt Current evidence is that owing to accelerating loss of the icecaps sea levels are likely to rise by over a metre, and possibly over 2m, by the end of this century, with the highest annual tides over a metre above this and storm tides far higher. It will soon be impossible to open the estuary at a height of 1m, or even 1.2m, above historical mean sea levels. Given the significant environmental impacts, Council should immediately restore the opening height to 1.2m and redirect our rates into preparing an adaption strategy for the Belongil catchment detailing how to cope with rising sea levels, the increasing threat of inundation of the town centre, and the increasing volumes being discharged from the STP.

Letters ▶ Continued from page 13 a banana’ and his witty observation that ‘the warrior two pose was the worst thing to happen to surfing,’ he had as much fun with words and imagery as he did the water. But the one expression he valued and was his mantra, that he knew how to say in a variety of different languages and wanted to know if we could teach it to him in another language, was ‘look at the trees.’ To ‘look at the trees’ meant to look up from your board, and, on a literal level there were trees on the shoreline, but it was more than that. It meant face the world assertively (a word he told me to apply to my surf moves) because it was by ‘looking at the trees’ that you would find balance. If you didn’t look up, you were sure to plunge into the water, and he was right. I think that to ‘look at the trees’ is a wonderful way to capture my first (of many) visits to Byron Bay.

For North Coast news online visit Your community reminded me that balance comes with confidence, with holding your head high, and to always strive to ‘look at the trees’ so that you can ride any wave, find your peace, and see all the things this wonderful world has to offer. Rachael Ward Bermuda

Sewer rates Comments by utility manager Cameron Clark (Echo, July 31, p4) indicates lower ratepayer fees brought about by lower licence administration fees by the EPA owing to ‘the low nutrient loading of pollutants at council’s sewerage treatment plants (STPs) means lower ratepayer fees, say staff’. This is connected with licence charges by the EPA. These charges are quite small so the saving passed on will be minuscule. But good on the sewer operators for a job well done. I hope this report showing the STPs are performing so

well will cause the council to rethink the proposed closure of Ocean Shores sewerage treatment plant by 2027. Byron Council adopted a reuse policy where effluent from STPs would be available for reuse, but this hasn’t been pursued with any vigour. The northern part of the Shire has never been given the opportunity to have access to reuse, thus removing the impact on potable water. With the closure of Ocean Shores STP this potential access to reuse for the north of the Shire will likely disappear. Director of infrastructure Philip Holloway or general manager Mark Arnold, as you’ve halved the outdoor staff numbers and replaced them with people from labour-hire organisations, the methodology seems to be labor hire staff are more cost-effective. If this is the case why is the same methodology not applied to salaried staff positions, which are all employed

Atomic madness The atomic power push have become active again. Like the climate-change deniers the atomic-power pushers just keep coming back, no matter how often they are smacked down by good sense. The facts once again: Firstly atomic power is not carbon neutral. It produces enormous quantities of carbon in the production and construction of the power plant and its ongoing operation continues to produce carbon for the length of the limited life of the plant. Secondly it produces relatively large amounts of extremely toxic materials that cannot be safely stored. To the toxic waste product outputs must be added the disposables used in the power plant: gloves, overshoes, protective garments,

3

tools etc are all carriers of nuclear contamination; all must be stored safely. Thirdly the power plant itself is only a machine and will eventually have to be decommissioned and made safe for future generations. Engineers and scientists will need to be employed for hundreds of years to make sure that deadly contamination is contained. They will need to be paid by someone (probably you the taxpayer and your children) until the waste and the decommissioned equipment cease to be a danger. This time frame runs into thousands of years. A very big wages bill that I can’t see the owners of the power plants paying. Fourthly the waste materials and contaminated items make ideal weapons for terrorists or even gangster elements to use as a basis for blackmail and other forms of extortion. The contaminated items will need to be guarded carefully for, once again, thousands of

years. You can bet that the companies making money from energy production will not be paying the bill for a thousand years of security. Once again it is you the taxpayer and your children who will foot the bill. Fifthly there is a whole raft of legal, technical, moral and ethical problems that will surround the plants. Most of these have not been solved and are not capable of solution. Sixthly the plants have shown a definite capacity to pollute the environment, ranging from relatively small leakages to the Three Mile Island, Chernobyl, and Fukushima disasters. We are expected to accept the technocrats’ assurances that modern plants are safe. Unfortunately their record does support this. Quite obviously the atomic power plants are not an economic proposition. Companies can only make a profit if they grab their shortterm profits and shift their

Letters long-term costs onto the taxpayer. Atomic power is not a panacea for a world addicted to the excessive use of inanimate power. It is a con job of breath-taking proportions, diverting us from a desperately needed consideration of the sustainable use of this wonderful, beautiful planet. Vince Kean Murwillumbah

The art of potholes The Greens councillors, in their full-page comment (July 24) claimed, among many other things, that ‘We’ve done more to fix the roads... than any previous council’. Perhaps they could explain then why some of the roads I use regularly are in the worst condition I have ever seen? Annette Snow’s suggestion (Letters, July 31) of painting white around the potholes is a good one – then when Council come along with their white cane looking for the potholes they can match the colours. If that doesn’t work, rates are due at the end of August. If Council is unable to understand public safety or the millions of dollars in damage to our cars every year, perhaps they will understand a rates strike? Matthew Lambourne Mullumbimby

ĕƱëſĕşĪǯE I just found this article from the South Rivers Bulletin, August 1991, under the headline, ‘1G to be replaced’. ‘Two-G [2G] is being rolled out in Australia with no public consultation! A nuclear-medicine resource

stated that 2G will result in a massive increase in cancer and other diseases from the absorption of wireless radiation. Everybody who uses 2G will get brain tumours within five years. The output from hand-held mobile phones and base stations will result in headaches, dizziness, and an inability to think logically about things scientific. ‘Science America in July had that all new computers, sound systems, refrigerators, cassette players, car radios, toasters, taxis, radio stations, TV stations, hospitals, police stations, jaffle irons, and automatic garage doors will be emitting perilous amounts of electromagnetic radiation [EMR] and 2G would exacerbate those effects. ‘Local physicians advise that everyone should limit their exposure to these appliances to a few seconds only each day. Children and teens are at the greatest risk of EMR damage of 2G. It is claimed that millions of them will have the disease “Screentimus” within the decade. ‘At least five people including a vet and a retired radiographer have signed a document opposing the rollout of 2G technology. Hawaii recently halted the upgrade of 2G citing the dangers of the salt spray from the huge surf carrying EMR to mainland USA. ‘What to do? Attend the protest rally at the silverwinged Telstra Tower at the corner of Ewingsdale Road and Bayshore Drive in Byron on Saturday. ‘A World Health Organisation spokesperson predicted there would be millions of deaths from mobile phones

because 2G would have a new application called “texting, which is like a personal telegram,’’’ she said, ‘When drivers use their phones and drive cars, death rates from accidents will increase alarmingly.’’’ My cat was only 15 when it died six years ago and I am sure it was due to 3G. Now I am worrying about the ramifications of the 2022 8G rollout. Raphael Lee Cass Byron Bay

Cancer to cash It’s great that the common cold virus has been successfully used by doctors to quickly and easily cure bladder cancer (Forbes 4 July, 2019). But it is not good news for the economy that the Australian government has banned all purchases above

$10,000 using cash; and their wording allows them to eventually lower that limit to any amount at all (Currency Restrictions on the Use of Cash Bill 2019). Peter Olson Goonengerry

The perception of concession With respect to Danny Wakil (Letters, 31 July), his assertion that Palestinians haven’t made or honoured a single concession is another example of how unreliable his position is. How can anyone believe, even after mountains of evidence (cited in The Guardian and Der Spiegel), that Palestinians didn’t make ever more painful and significant concessions? Really? The real reason that the last two decades of negotiations have failed is that there

is no real will among the Israeli leadership or the general Israeli population. No major political party within Israel supports peace along internationally recognised borders. If we were to put a peace proposal based on the consensus UN position to the peoples of the holy land, less than 20 per cent of Israeli Jews would support it, whereas upwards of 95 per cent of Palestinians would wholeheartedly support it. Sadly, Israelis, driven by ultra-nationalist leaders and hawkish pro-war media, have embraced the mindset of racial superiority needed to steal land and dispossess people rather than make peace with their weak and almost defenceless neighbours. In a recent poll conducted by Israel’s Channel 10, only

20 per cent of Israeli Jews rejected the statement, ‘Most Jews are better than most non-Jews because they were born Jews’. The majority agreed with the statement (https://tinyurl. com/y82khowk) The peace offer on the table from the Palestinian side is to have a completely demilitarised Palestine with UN peacekeepers, for Israel to keep all but four settlements, and the largest concessions on Jerusalem ever given. Israelis and Palestinians are equally human and deserve equal human rights.

FESTIVAL CONCERT OVERVIEWS Concert 1: Friday 7:00pm: Festival Welcome

Concert 8: Sunday 1:00pm

The opening concert features all the artists of the Festival and a smorgasbord of music.

Returning to the Festival by popular demand after 2018, we welcome back radio personality Eddie Ayres for Intriguing Journeys as he chats to acclaimed classical guitar soloist Karin Schaupp and the mesmerising Orava String Quartet about their lives and musical journeys.

Concert 2: Friday 8:30pm Explores Eastern European folk music and Jewish mysticism with Mahler’s vocal masterpiece and Golijov’s epic composition about the great mystical Kabbalist rabbi from 800 years ago, known as Isaac the Blind.

Concert 9: Sunday 3:00pm

Concert 3: Saturday 10:00am Renowned Australian classical guitarist Karin Schaupp and resident conductor of the Colorado Symphony, Chris Dragon, discuss the history of the noble guitar – an instrument embraced by cultures around the world.

Concert 4: Saturday 11:30am Showcases the virtuoso woodwind soloists of Southern Cross Soloists.

Concert 5: Saturday 3:00pm Showcases the NZ Chamber Soloists including violin supremo Amalia Hall.

Keeping with exploring the conversational element of multi-instrument concertos, this concert sees Southern Cross Soloist cellist Blair Harris team up with leading US/NZ cello soloist James Tennant in Vivaldi’s stunning Double Cello Concerto. The festival finishes on an absolute highlight – Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade in a chamber version of this exotic tale of love, intrigue, and adventure as we relive the story of One Thousand and One Nights from the Arabian Nights.

Concert 6: Saturday 7:30pm Shines a spotlight on the virtuosity and artistry of Southern Cross Soloists, finishing with the remarkable Rachmaninov Variations on a theme of Paganini as well as the double concerto Sanctuary by Australian composer and jazz pianist Joe Chindamo.

Concert 7: Sunday 10:30am Continuing with the double concerto concept, Sinfonia Concertante highlights Mozart’s use of multiple soloists in this fascinating program of Sinfonia Concertantes. The highlight of this concert will be the iconic and seductive Sinfonia Concertante for violin and viola, K. 364, which is arguably one of Mozart’s greatest works, featuring violinist NZ’s Amalia Hall and the Orava Quartet’s Thomas Chawner (viola).

HYPNOTHERAPY TRAINING AUSTRALIA This iconic institution was started in 2009 on the central coast by Marilyn Newman, a strong, passionate, caring, and kind woman, and a brilliant hypnotherapist/psychotherapist. She felt there was a need for deeper training, more compassion and empathy, and depth of knowledge. Marilyn died in 2016 and handed the reigns over to her daughter Kaz, who trained together with Marilyn over 30 years ago, and also worked with her. The training has a three-pronged approach – Mind, Body, and Spirit, following the belief that each needs to be worked with for full healing to take place.

SOUL PATTINSON MULLUMBIMBY FOR ALL YOUR COLD, FLU, AND HAYFEVER SOLUTIONS

Kaz and her partner Leanne decided to bring their unique and world-class training to the Gold Coast as well, commencing 21 August. ‫ ܠ‬training@hypnotherapytraining.net.au ս Kaz 0466 043 611

If a cold has got you spending a few days on the couch, don’t forget there’s a range of products at Craig Watson Soul Pattinson Chemist in Mullumbimby to help speed your recovery and relieve your symptoms. They have a range of cold and flu tablets, cough mixtures, throat sprays, nasal sprays; many choices at good prices.  

REPAIR, REFURBISH, & RECYCLE

As we come out of cold and flu season we head into hayfever season. Did you know you can rinse your sinuses? Irrigating the nasal and sinus cavities with a saline solution helps wash away excess mucus and relieve nasal and sinus congestion. The first time you do it will feel a little strange but it will be worth it once you feel the results. Call into Soul Pattinson’s in Mullum for friendly, professional advice and you’ll be feeling better in no time at all. ս 6684 4888 ߻ 60 Burringbar Street Mullumbimby Jonny Niesche, Untitled (after Morris), 2018 Photo: Jessica Maurer

LISMORE REGIONAL ART GALLERY Idle Worship explores contemporary notions of reverence, worship, and idolisation. Featuring some of the country’s leading contemporary artists working across installation, video, sculpture, painting, and textiles. Each artist attends to their private idol with idiosyncratic intent and treats them with a respectful recognition of something perceived to be greater than the self.

The company is now headed in a new direction to offer customers a 360-degree solution for all things mobile. iRepairs founder Duane Tutchen told The Echo, ‘Basically we are working to find an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way to keep these devices working and out of landfill as long as possible. We have always offered component-level repairs, but now we are taking old devices and making them new again through our trade-in and refurbishment process. The result is a huge saving for our customers (up to 70 per cent less than original retail price) and a win for the environment as well!’ ս 6685 5585 ‫ ܠ‬team@irepairs.info www.irepairs.net.au ߻ Unit 1/130 Jonson St, Byron Bay (Above the Bahn Mi)

Main Street Burger Bar are hosting a great community fundraiser this Thursday 8 August to provide clean water for communities in need around the world. There will be $5,000 in raffle prizes on offer along with a live DJ, local art and photo exhibition, and of course food, drinks, and good times, because the philosophy of the charity beneficiary (Waves for Water) is ‘doing what you love and helping along the way’. Waves For Water has a simple goal: get clean water to every person who needs it. Past community fundraisers through Waves For Water have helped ‘clean-water couriers’ travel to India, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Africa, South America, Central America, Fiji, and Central Australia (as they say, can you believe that even in Australia we still have areas with limited access to clean safe drinking water?). They believe that ‘access to clean water is a fundamental human right’, and that they have dedicated their lives to providing it, through the implementation of portable water-filter systems, the digging/renovating of bore-hole wells, and the construction of rainwater harvesting/storing systems (in places where groundwater is not accessible). Since 2014, Australian travellers have helped to provide more than 500 water filters to over 30 countries, providing up to 50,000 people with access to clean water. According to the charity, ‘The global water crisis is solvable. The technology exists, along with the manpower to implement it. It just comes down to a choice: those who have access to clean water choosing to provide it for those who don’t.’ Entry to the event is $10 (includes two raffle tickets) and all proceeds go to Waves for Water, a registered charity. All donations are tax deductible. Thurs 8 August 7.30pm at Main St Burger Bar

I’m going to be honest – I hadn’t been to The Rocks at Aquarius before! But my uncle Charly has been raving about it for a while now, so I decided to give it a spin with my mum recently, and I have to say that I’m officially a big, big fan! The Rocks at Aquarius do some pretty epic lunch specials (the specials change daily), so you can always be sure of something new and tasty to try for just $15 with either a wine, beer, or soft drink. Our salmon was cooked perfectly (or as I like to call it medium rare), with crispy skin, and the béarnaise sauce was a masterstroke with the zucchini and bok choy, a rather delicate flavour profile that went beautifully with our glass of Sav Blanc! We also got stuck into two generous and succulent Duck Pancakes with all the usual trimmings for just $12. If you are looking for something super healthy, nourishing, and flavour jumping, I’d seriously recommend you get among the Green Bowl ($15.50) – it’s piled high with all the goodies you’d expect, and can easily be vegan if your heart so desires. Though, I’ve gotta say, I do think the perfectly sunny-side-up free-range egg perched on top looks rather sexy! If breakfast is more your thang, then you will be well fed and catered for with classics like Eggs Benedict for $19.50. Or dive into one of their daily breakfast specials; like my fav the bellylovely Huevos Ranchos with beans, pico do gallo, avocado cream, jalapeño salsa, and fried eggs on a tortilla – $15 with a coffee, juice, or tea, Si Senorita! Or the ever-popular Corn Fritters for $18.50, with poached eggs, tomato, rocket, grilled halloumi, and spicy tomato relish. If you’re a local then rejoice, my fabulous friends, because you simply just need to mention that you’re a local to your waiter and guess what?! You get 10 per cent off your bill, yep for real! Ah, and if you are looking to book a cocktail party or fab function with friends, these guys are starting to open in the evenings for private parties in the coming weeks! With various canapé options and even a barbecue menu too, give Patrick the manager a call for all the info! The Rocks is open for breakfast every day from 7 till 11.40am (coffee from 6.30am) and lunch from 12 noon till 2pm. Happy Hour is offered every day from 12 noon till 2pm! So you can enjoy your favourite alcoholic beverage with your bacon and eggs on toast, should you desire! The Rocks at Aquarius. 16 Lawson Street, Byron Bay. 6685 7663. Open 7 days a week 6.30am till 2pm. Follow the good vibes @aquarius_byronbay. Words and images by Terase Davidson: Terase is the founder of Taste Byron Bay. For more information contact:  www.tastebyronbay.com or follow the fun on INSTAGRAM @tastebyronbay.

Due to popular demand, we have extended for the month of August!

Good Life

Juju Roving Bar: Black Party launch Monique Guterres is always looking for something new, and her latest venture JUJU Byron, a fully licensed roving bar business, is an innovative and exciting addition to the events industry in Byron Bay. Monique is the creator of longstanding local catering businesses Seaweed Cuisine and Hungry Like The Wolf, with a longstanding commitment to provenance in produce and services as well as staffing dating back to when quality local produce, modern share-plate menus, and fine-dining service were mostly the moist-eyed dreams of chefs. Monique says the events industry is a great training ground for staff, including her own children! ‘I concentrate on building confidence and the ability to think for yourself,’ she says, ‘and some of our staff have gone on to work in world-renowned hotels. I’m also a believer in collaboration in events and catering, and I’ll be looking to do that with JUJU Byron.’ Monique has participated in many local hospitality showcase events, but she is now in a leading role as creative director of the Chef’s Lunch Fire and Forage at Bangalow’s upcoming Sample Food Festival 2019. Which brings us to The Black Party; at what Monique calls Australia’s most underrated seaside venue, the Byron Bay Surf Club. The Black Party, the official launch of JUJU Byron, will be an evening of canapés, cocktails, and dancing with a black mysto sophisto dress code, and promises to be a super fun night.

With so many local talented creatives in one space it’s in the style of the old industry parties that once blazed Byron. With JUJU signature cocktail on arrival, oyster bar and canapés by Seaweed Cuisine, and fully operating JUJU bar, guests will have all they need to hit the dance floor to the funk soul grooves of DJ Abel El Toro. Or lounge around on the lavish soft furnishings supplied by Frank & Joy. Styling is by The Neon Rebel, florals

by The French Petal, lighting by North Coast Events, and plants from Northern Rivers Hire. The bar will stock Stone & Wood beer and fine wines. Cocktails will feature organic Tintenbar Distillery gin, vodka, and whisky plus interesting infusions of native botanicals such as The Native Gypsy, with native berries and myrtles, and the unique Kelp and Ginger Toddy, with whisky, kelp, and spice. This is a one-off event, so come and be part of the fun. Tickets available on www.eventbrite.com/e/ the-black-party-tickets64519804472

‘Mum would have been proud’ After its being five years on the market, Fiona Johnson from Elders Brunswick Valley made another milestone sale when contracts finally exchanged on the highly coveted 7 Tweed St, Brunswick Heads. With the ecstatic sellers on hand to watch the Sold sign finally go up, Fiona and her grateful clients dedicated the sale to Fiona’s mother, Jeanette Gow, who sadly passed away just one week beforehand at the age of 82. Having previously been a longtime resident of the Byron Shire and a regular contributor to The Echo during the 1980s and 1990s, Mrs Gow was a staunch advocate for various issues close to her heart such as anti-fluoridation, dunecare, and seedsavers to name just a few. As pioneer residents of South Golden Beach in the early 80s, Fiona recalls when that suburb was a barren blank canvas. ‘When I was a child, we could see whitewater from the front door of our house on Beach

Avenue. There were no substantial sanddunes, no walkways, and not many trees. My father, Robert Gow, a local builder, constructed our home to withstand cyclones and possible tidal surges. My parents used to drag home kelp to fertilise the garden and Mum was reading grassroots magazines, implementing permaculture, composting, and recycling long before it was fashionable.’ As a part of the Byron Shire community, Mrs Gow owned and operated Bangalow Bulk and Health Foods. ‘My first job was working with my mum at her shop in the 80s. Byron St was the Pacific Highway at that time and the demographic in Bangalow was very different then. ‘Mum gave a lot of her time to her community and I’m very proud of the work ethic that both my parents instilled in me from an early age. My mother was also a very talented pianist, writer, and poet; she taught me how to listen

to nature and I’m very grateful that she passed on her musical and creative genes to me. I miss her every day and I know that she was proud of my achievements both as a local realtor and musician. I’m also grateful that Mum was still alive to meet my little girl and guide me through my middle-aged pregnancy. ‘My parents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary just three months before Mum’s death, and their love for one another and to their five children have been a constant source of inspiration to me and my young family.’ Fiona was determined to get 7 Tweed Street sold before taking bereavement leave and in the end there were three buyers fighting to own the title. The successful local buyers

and the sellers have asked for anonymity and Fiona has been instructed to keep the price confidential until after the contact is completed in early September.

IN THE BIGGEST ROCK’N’ROLL PRIZE FIGHT OF THE SEASON, JIMMY WILLING AND THE REAL GONE HICK-UPS GO HEAD TO HEAD WITH MICK DALEY AND THE RE-MAINS… PLAYING SATURDAY AT THE BILLINUDGEL HOTEL. LET’S SEE HOW THESE TWO COME OFF.

IN

ME

It’s 5am, it’s Lismore, and I’m back in town again Mick: It’s 5am, it’s Lismore, and I’m back in town again, I dunno if I’m gonna learn what’s up or why or when.

Well my tears they were falling onto him and he looked up to me and he said, ring the bell louder down in the chapel, cos Flash Johnny Gilbert has fallen in battle, and go tell all the people to remember my name, tell ’em Flash Johnny Gilbert died game.

Jimmy: It’s 5am, it’s Lismore, and you know the score, I’m wide awake from listening to that lonesome bird call.

I used to love playing this in my five-year stint with Jimmy’s old band Ragadoll. Such an evocative, eerie, and beautiful song from his great new album Bushrangers and Ghosts.

Never tell anyone too much Mick: Never tell anyone too much, never fall for a soft touch, never enter a singer’s clutch, those words make light of such and such.

Jimmy: He always wanted to be a star football player, but the poor guy had a build like Leo Sayer, frustration made him mean, he nearly killed the captain of his own football team,

Jimmy: Never tell anyone too much, and please don’t tell my mum, about the night we stole the watermelons, and got shot at with a gun.

When he robbed a bottleshop down in Bendigo, he was only sixteen, and that’s not a good way to begin. From Ballad of a Wrong Un.

I buried him with a rock and a pair of my old socks

Describe each other…

Mick: I buried him with a rock and a pair of my old socks. It pays to keep your feet warm in the grave.

Mick: Jimmy is the quintessential bohemian. A man so enveloped by his muse that he has become the tall Old Testament figure he must have glimpsed in dreams a century or two ago. Obsessive, perfectionist, endlessly inspired. When I met him about twenty years ago I was amazed someone like this existed. Someone so immersed in art and music that he’d built and navigated a carved horsedrawn cart from Sydney to his adopted home. A modern gypsy troubadour who paints crazy dream sequences and never, ever shuts up. I admired and

Jimmy: I buried him with a rock song that he loved, and then we all drank a toast to him down at the corner pub. Okay, hard to pick a winner. What do you think of each other? What’s your favourite lyric of each other’s songs? Mick: Flash Johnny Gilbert lay dying, I cradled his black curly head, his white silk shirt it was turning a shade of crimson red,

respected his zeal and work ethic. He’s an art and music machine and a great epigrammist. None of which will do him any good when he comes up against the precision country rock’n’roll machine that is the Re-Mains in full flight. He’ll be outflanked, undergunned, and overwhelmed by the twin banjo and steel guitar attack of lethal Leigh Ivin and Uncle Burnin’ Love, tranquillised and overrun by the ruthless rhythm machine of Bedford and Jones, and have his requiem written and delivered by me, his humble apprentice turned poltergeist/ doppelganger. Jimmy: A charismatic frontman, a pugnacious opponent, and a chick magnet like no other. Oh yes, and he wears thongs! Worst thing that ever happened at a live gig? Mick: Many years ago I had a dream I was booked to play bass with the Beasts of Bourbon. I was about to go onstage when a roadie hands me a beat-up old acoustic guitar with strings missing. ‘But I’m s’posed to play bass,’ I whine. The roadie snarls, ‘Get in there and play,’ and I stagger into a nightmare. Flash forward several years and I’m actually playing bass in Tex Perkins’s backing band at Federal Hall. Too much backstage bonhomie, a complete absence of onstage sound, and Tex has his back to me, leaning into the songs with gusto. I can’t hear a fucking thing and I lose the

plot. No-one has a gaze quite as malevolent as Tex when you ruin his gig. Jimmy: I was not allowed through the door of the club let alone on stage owing to my attire: I was dressed as a psychedelic version of The Scarecrow from Oz. (Advice to up-andcoming performers: put your scarecrow outfit in a suitcase and put it on backstage!) Biggest break you never got? Mick: We opened at Splendour to 5,000 crazed punters and had a lot of industry interest and hype. But our overexcited drummer caused a ruckus backstage and displeased the Important Types. Bye-bye instant fame. Jimmy: Biggest break you never got… Painting Nick Cave’s portrait for the Archibald prize. What should we expect for your gig at the Billi? Mick: Over-the-top country rock’n’roll showmanship and plain old-fashioned showing off, from a bunch of blokes who know every song inside out and have been playing together longer than they care to remember. Savage steel-guitar onslaughts and banjo-like the touch of rain on the face, when the drought breaks in May. Jimmy: A rock’n’roll show like no other. Yes it certainly will be. What an awesome double bill! Jimmy Willing & the Real Gone Hick-Ups v Mick Daley & The Re-Mains! Saturday at 4pm at the Billindugel Hotel. $15.

WOODSTOCK COMES TO BRUNS On 17 August 1969 the Woodstock Music and Art Fair attracted unprecedented crowds to witness one of the most iconic cultural events of the 20th century. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, folk balladeer Smokey Fields, alter ego of local singer/songwriter Chris Mallory, has gathered a group of talented local artists to perform fresh versions of the songs we know and love, paying homage to an event close to his heart. ‘To me, even though the event happened almost a decade before I was born, the music of Woodstock has had a strong impact on my life. I think my first exposure to Joe Cocker’s Help From My Friends was in the theme song for the 90s show The Wonder Years. I never got sick of the intro and seemed to understand instinctively that they were referring to something culturally significant.   In the late 90s a friend with great taste in music gave me a bunch of mixed tapes; one of the songs on these tapes was Richie Haven’s Freedom. I always knew it was a fantastic piece of live music, but it wasn’t until I started researching for this project that I realised it was from Woodstock and that he had made it up on the spot to stop the hippies rioting because they couldn’t fly in more artists. Years later in 2009 I watched the entire performance of Joe Cocker at Woodstock for the first time in my life and I was completely blown away.  He was superhuman in his delivery; I haven’t been the same since,’ said Chris.

BRICKLAYERS BUILD THE ROCK Bricklayers celebrate the release of their debut album Tan Black and Brown at the Hotel Great Northern on Saturday. Hailing from the murky depths of the Brisbane music scene, Bricklayers first formed for an impromptu support lot for WA’s Peter Bibby in 2017. Since then they have gone to work at creating their own brand of junkyard swamp rock. While writing and recording has been more of a focus, they have played sold-out shows around Brisbane, the DIY festival Calypso Beach Vibes in northern NSW, and helped to curate Forest Fuzz Festival north of Brisbane. Hailing from the psychedelic scene in Brisbane, playing in bands such as Swapt Jenson and Belligerent Goat, the guys have made a decision to step away from the sound they are known for and move towards a more angular, industrial, junkyard vibe. Showing their tender side in the title track Tan Black and Brown, this is also an open letter to frontman Nathan Glen’s dog! Hotel Great Northern on Saturday. 9pm. Free entry.

Chris first hit on the idea to do a Woodstock 50th anniversary event earlier in the year when he was looking at the subject for a musical play that he is helping a Lismore-based disability organisation, Multitask, produce.  ‘I started to research the music and the more live performances that I saw from Woodstock the more I wanted to do a separate show on the actual 50th anniversary date. So here we are, two weeks out, and it’s going ahead,’ said Chris. The event will feature solo performances from accomplished local artists Rebecca Ireland, Áine Tyrrell, and the enigmatic Josh Shelton. Smokey has enlisted fellow fake Russians Matt Gulliford and James Dodds to add harmony and acoustic flair to the night. The audience is in for a musical treat, with the stellar lineup, along with a true heartfelt connection to the sentiments of the history of Woodstock and what it represents in the modern era. Woodstock Reimagined is at The Brunswick Picture House on Saturday 17 August at 7pm. Tix $20/25 at brunswickpicturehouse.com.

SOME LIKE IT HOT

I’m experiencing climate change. Every night I am a planet that heats up. I won’t use the M-word. I don’t like it. When you use the ‘m’ word people glaze over. They stop listening. I know I used to. I was even on an ABC show last year called Ask the Doctor with a doctor talking about the M thing and I should have listened because then I’d know what’s happening. But I didn’t pay attention because I didn’t have climate change back then. I think that’s why it’s such a surprise when it happens, because none of us has a clue what the hell is going on. All I know is that I’m out of eggs. That makes me sad. In the fridge of life I am now an empty carton. I loved my eggs. I make great omelettes. All that’s left in my uterus now is a feather and a postit note that says, ‘I owe you an egg’. I don’t sleep, either. I have this wicked insomnia where I’m pretty well awake most of the night. Unfortunately in the cinema of my brain I don’t get to choose the movie. It’s not like Netflix; there’s only one show on. You end up watching the weird shit your subconscious plays, which is a very cheap little short film about how much money you owe, all the things you haven’t done, and how little time you have to do it all. Although the acting is terrible and the script even worse, the tension is overwhelming. And you can’t help but watch it again and again. It seems to be on a loop. The only relief from the film is my personal climate change. The heating thing is weird. I don’t really understand how it relates to the eggs. But it happens mainly at night. I wake up every halfhour hot. Not just hot. On fire. Like the heat is coming through my head; it’s in my hair, it radiates from the inside out. I think about cutting my hair into one of those practical older-lady styles. I always wondered why women did that. Now I understand. I’ve had to hide the scissors. Because even your fricking hair gets stupid hot. I don’t think I’ve felt heat like it. As soon as it happens you have to rip off all your clothes. Everything. If this is a hot flush I hope it doesn’t happen at Woolies because I’ll be naked in an instant. It’s not a choice, it’s a reflex. I’ll be the naked woman climbing into the cheese fridge. You’ll find me in there covered in cooling slabs of haloumi. Oh bliss. Naked covered in cold, soft cheese. I fantasise about emptying out my own fridge just so I can use it as my personal climate-control unit. I think I am awful to sleep with right now. My husband hasn’t said as much but I do hear him whimpering in the night. I constantly seek the cool side of the pillow. Which means I’m auditioning pillows all night. Rejected pillows are hurled from the volcano of my bed, and when they cool, I scramble to gather them. They feel a bit like smooth, cold haloumi. I can’t work out whether I need bedcovers on or off. As soon as I get hot I kick them off.

PORT ROYAL AT THE NORTHERN Formed over a shared passion for classic rock’n’roll culture, Brisbane’s Port Royal are fast spreading their message of selfbelief and unity through their music across the country. Hailed as one of Brisbane’s most exciting bands to watch, their latest single Ain’t Got You was released this June and swiftly reached 14K streams within its first two weeks. The uplifting, party-oriented nature of the track is a move away from the band’s bluesier rock’n’roll origins, but has been enthusiastically received by fans and critics alike. Joining the bill are Toxic Fox, who have been busy developing a growing local fanbase in Byron and who also release their next, highly anticipated single Oil Painted Hill on 9 August. The gig promises to be an all-round celebration of new music. Also joining the lineup are local band Plenko. Friday |  Hotel Great Northern  |  9pm  |  Free

Kick is the wrong word. I explode them off. My husband shrieks in shock. He’s freezing his nuts off over there, but I don’t care. I’m heartless like that. I notice I have droplets of sweat beading on my forehead, between my breasts. Like I’m lying on a towel at the beach on a 40-degree day. But it’s a cold winter night. I look over the vast continent of my bed and way in the distance I see my husband attempting to huddle under what’s left of the doona. He’s freezing. Lucky him. Just a metre away I am naked, and on fricking fire. I put the fan on. I’ve have a cold shower. How can two complete temperatures exist in one bed? Then as quickly as I heat, I’m freezing. This is when I steal what’s left of the doona off my husband. This happens every half-hour. Apparently it’s some sort of hormonal change as I move ‘towards’ the M-word. For my husband it’s more like hypothermia. It’s a medical emergency where his body loses heat faster than it can produce heat. Next time he complains I’ll wrap him in alfoil. Like a spinach roll. I’ve seen them do that on the news when they rescue people who’ve gone missing on long walks in the Blue Mountains. Except he needs a rescue team in the bedroom. I expect he’s almost dead some mornings; he certainly looks it.

CULT RECUL URE THE TWO MANDYS AT THE BEACHY!

Mandy Nolan has been making the people of Byron laugh now for almost three decades. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s become something of a comedic icon in the Bay where Mandy-speak is part of the vernacular so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perfectly fitting that she should team up with one of Byronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most iconic venues: The Beach Hotel. Or as it is lovingly known by locals: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Beachyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. So come along this Tuesday to experience international comedy superstar Mandy Knightâ&#x20AC;Ś yes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the two Mandys! Mandy Knight is the 2018 winner of the Comicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Comic, a prestigious award judged by comedians throughout the UK. Starting her career in London back in the 90s Mandy was a regular on all the TV standup shows: Live at Jongleurs, The World Stands Up, Live at the Comedy Store, Comedy Network, Comedy Blue, Melbourne Tonight, and Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest panel show Good News Week. Her comedy acting was called upon for sitcoms as well, performing in Baddielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Syndrome and Jo Brandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Like It or Lump It. In 2017 Mandy returned to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe after a twenty-year hiatus, with a show that was simply her best work to date. The production, The Dark Knight, was a spectacular personal journey of discovery on why she has to make the unspeakable hysterical. It is no wonder the Comedy Store recently wrote: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the act that loves nothing better than putting a little bit of wrong in your earâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. And she certainly does that. A rapid-fire wit of one-liners and crowd interaction, Mandy Knight is relentlessly funny. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no surprise The Independent called her â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A virtuoso comedienneâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Nobody is safe from this womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relentless wit. Two Mandys are always better than one â&#x20AC;&#x201C; come and catch the local Mandy and the international Mandy at Comedy at the Beachy, at the Beach Hotel on Tuesday. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at 7pm and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free!

ENTERTAINMENT done differently. They will also be answering questions from the audience. This dark, gothic tale about three nuns has an international all-star cast, led by Emmy Award-winning actress Ann Dowd (The Handmaidâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tale, The Leftovers), Australian stage and screen star Essie Davis (Miss Fisherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Murder Mysteries) and UK actress Jessica Barden. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an epic and fantastical tale of faith, love, and redemption.

GETTING HAMMERED!

COLOUR CORRECTION

Eleven years! The team at Hammer and Hand Jewellery and Metal Collective are excited, proud, and grateful to be celebrating 11 years in business in Byron. Knowing just how hard it is to stay in business has made their upcoming exhibition Fluxed all the more reason to celebrate. The 13 current members believe that the galleryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s success is down to great teamwork and the way Hammer and Hand is run as a collective, meaning that each member has a share of the rent and has their regular day in the gallery/workshop. Customers can come and browse the work of all 13 metal artists, chat with and watch the rostered member at work. There have been many business changes in the Arts and Industry Estate over the last decade, but Hammer and Hand are in the same premises where they opened, still welcoming locals and holiday-makers alike. Many return time and again, and bring new customers who themselves become regulars. Hammer and Hand Jewellery and Metal Collective celebrate 11 years in business and look forward to the next 11 with an exhibition of new work. Fluxed on Friday 16 August 5â&#x20AC;&#x201C;8pm.

When you fix a mistake, you make a correction, a change that rights a wrong. When you correct a misspelled word, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made a correction. Well done! Correction also applies to punishment, which is another way to right a wrong. A correction is an improvement or a revision when thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something that needs to be fixed.

Kooky, wacky, weird, and wonderful. DARK SCIENCE is a new freaky festival of fun that will occupy Lismore Quad for two nights after dark on Fri 16 and Sat 17 August. Set during Science Week, DARK SCIENCE is a free event celebrating the intersection between provocative art, performance, and the sciences – for adults! Presenting The Intergalactic Dub Lab are Mick Dick (aka DJ Wonkytooth) and KellieO. They spoke with The Echo about what they are bringing to Dark Science… KELLIE O DEMPSEY. You have a great depth of experience in creating works ‘hybrid in form’ that ‘can incorporate projection, video, collage, architectural space, gestural line, performance, and digital drawing’. How have you come to use such a diverse conglomeration of disciplines in your art? My practice started with a love of drawing combined with my love of music. I started drawing bands and musicians I knew and watched. This grew into drawing large scale using projections in architectural spaces, in collaboration with dancers and musicians. You have an extensive work and research history in the northern New South Wales area. What is it about this area that has kept you living, working, and creating here? I finished my Masters in Visual Arts and taught at SCU in Lismore. Northern NSW has become home. I have lived here longer than anywhere else in the world. You are collaborating with musician / music producer Mick Dick for your joint Dark Science show in August. You and Mick have worked together numerous times over the years. How did your collaborative relationship begin and develop? In 2009 at the Tweed Regional Gallery we did a live sound and drawing event for my exhibition The Spectacle of Performance Drawing. We have continued to evolve creatively ever since. We have established a language that is responsive and fluid where the sound follows line and movement and vice versa. What can people expect from your part of the show this time around? Will it comprise similar elements to your recent productions / performances, or are you planning

‘When I took over Mojo Bullet it was a mentoring business and so it gave me a view of the holistic needs of artists. You have to look at all of them. Their infrastructure, their branding… generally they just want the PR but you have to jump through a lot of hoops before I’ll do that. ‘There are lots of issues that artists need to address to maximise a campaign. I’ve minimised operations and created this online course. It’s self-paced; they go through it whenever they want. It essentially will take them through the steps they need to go through to release music. I believe wellness is a big issue for musicians. It’s starting to be acknowledged and addressed. The first

a different direction with your pieces for your side of the Intergalactic Dub Lab show? Intergalactic Dub Lab is different for us as it will be driven by Mick (aka DJ Wonkytooth) and the spaced-out delay and deep bass that he is jammin’ on the mixing desk with all his analog gear. I will animate and draw with light that will project all around the dome housing the gig. What aspects of science will your performance be accentuating to coincide with the Dark Science theme for the ‘micro-festival’ there at The Quad? The sounds will captain this interstellar journey as I create a cosmic atmosphere of colour and shape of shifting interplanetary weirdness with a psychedelic twist. What else is coming up for you as a performing artist? Is there anything else on the horizon that you would like to share with your local fans here in northern New South Wales? I currently have a show at the Museum of Brisbane that is an interactive drawing space as a part of Brisbane Art & Design Festival. MICK DICK  Your body of work is incredibly diverse, from a formal education in Jazz Studies at Melbourne’s Victorian College of the Arts in the 80s to collaborative projects with local Byron musicians, passion for and production of DUB re-edits, incorporating musical and instrumental experimentation, across production roles, cultures, and audiences. What, if anything, has been the consistent element in your drive to create across all the facets of your career?  Probably the use of space, from the more minimalist view of confronting silence to the rhythm of a filthy Jamaican bassline. Space is the place. It seems that much of your output is founded in your work as a bassist. Did you train formally as a bassist while at the VCA or did you study something else and develop as a bassist after your Jazz Studies years?  Yes, I studied double bass at VCA, under the guidance of the late, great improviser Brian Brown, who encouraged me to play ‘free’ as an arts practice. Has your role as a bass player, and that instrument’s usual role as a provider of harmonic / rhythmic foundation for other instruments, musicians, performers to work on top of facilitated / resulted in the diversity of your creative output, pushing you to provide that basis for more and more diverse collaborators? Yes, especially when I get to play the Deadly Bow, a custommade one-string bass with no frets. It gets way down low and opens up your imagination, making it possible to explore space and textures and allowing a more open, evocative sound to collaborate with visual artists such as Kellie or dancers and other musicians. You collaborated numerous times with Kellie O’Dempsey. Where did your collaborating process begin? How did you two meet, and what kind of show did you guys create together first? We met in Billinudgel. Our first show together was at Tweed Regional Art Gallery back in 2009. I was improvising on double bass, and Kellie drew massive canvases with giant bamboo sticks with charcoal and ink brushes on the ends… brilliant! What can people expect from your Dark Science show? What elements will you guys be working with in Intergalactic Dub Lab? This should be a fun gig, exposing the dark science of live dub mixing. People can expect thumping drum’n’bass to move your waist, with fragments of shattered sounds that reach out to other galaxies. I’ll be working dub techniques live as DJ Wonkytooth, on an analog mixing desk. Add tape echoes and spring reverbs together with Kellie’s cosmic live drawing projections on the inside of the dome, and TOTEM sound system… it should lift us all into the stratosphere. Dark Science is at The QUAD in Lismore 16 & 17 August 5–10pm. Free.

module I have developed is around goal setting and managing stress and staying healthy. Then we move to business and branding.’ Emily believes that musicians need to treat their music as a business. ‘Some musicians might naturally have an inclination to run a business. There’s the admin, the marketing, all the stuff that often doesn’t come easily to artists. For me it’s about looking at their strengths and assessing where their challenges are. Sometimes they don’t know what they don’t know. And for a lot of artists, learning about business can be a real eye opener. A lot of them have an Aha! moment around branding and content strategy. They would never have thought it was important for all their online platforms to look the same, to replicate their brand. Even the word brand can be off-putting for musicians! ‘The platform I am developing is a pretty huge project. I am still developing the modules; they should be ready September/ October,’ says Emily of the online portal Music Business Mojo: A Complete Guide to Releasing Your Music Independently. One of Emily’s inspirations is her belief that now ‘is the absolute best time to be an independent artist. It’s better than ever before. If you can harness the tools, then you can be the architect of your own success! You aren’t at the mercy of record companies to realise your dreams.

STARS BY LILITH

THE COSMIC QUARTET OF SUN, MARS, VENUS AND MERCURY IN THE SIGN OF I AM LION, HEAR ME ROAR! ENSURES PEAK ATTENDANCE AT SCREENINGS OF SIMBA. HAKUNA MATATA…

ARIES: You’re on fire this week, so let your innovative, experimental self rip, even if others don’t immediately get it. No harm in a spot of self-promo either: as they say in the trade, you can’t sell a secret. But can you stop talking long enough to listen to other people’s ideas? TAURUS: Been antsy to have that discussion, but the timing wasn’t right? Talks that haven’t gone well are more likely to succeed this week, when opening up about something close to your heart could clarify a mystifying situation or baffling behaviour. Lashed out? This is a good time to say sorry. GEMINI: Just when you thought you had a handle on something, the goal posts shift again – get used to it. As genial Jupiter sprints back into the straight, relationships pick up momentum and a personal situation needs your attention. This week, know that there’s plenty of help available to deal with it. CANCER: Mercury, the energetic planet of commerce and communication, heading into your money sector makes this is an auspicious week for getting finances sorted. Also for those random acts of kindness or spontaneous generosity that make someone’s day, because doesn’t that just get your own happy hormones pumping? LEO: Give it a rest, your majesty, it’s not always all about you. Then again, with four planets in Leo, plus exuberant Jupiter flaming out of retrograde, you may as well flaunt it while the celestial force is with you… So what to do but say that this week really is all about you. Enjoy. VIRGO: Now recent edgy vibes have subsided to a more peaceful groove, you’re this week’s valuable team player. Leading, if that’s what needed, from a confidently laidback position in a straightforward, unambiguous way. Ignoring flashy swagger, showy braggadocio, and overarching hype. Keeping it real. Go, Virgos.

. LIBRA: With genial Jupiter and communications manager Mercury moving forward this week, people are likely to finally start getting what you’ve been trying to say (at last!), though the gang of planets in a quite stubborn sign suggests you’ll be pretty adamant about wanting your way. As will others, so good luck, Venusians. SCORPIO: As Jupiter gives work and finances a lift, this week won’t respond to the withholding smoulder, so rather than leaving others to figure out how you’re feeling, step up to the negotiating table and talk about it, Scorpio. Keeping an open heart and mind to alternatives means more options and a stronger negotiating position. SAGITTARIUS: Weekend moon and Jupiter out of retrograde in Sagittarius, plus four planets in affectionate, charismatic fellow fire sign Leo, all suggest this is an auspicious time to take a chance. Lady Luck has a soft spot for Sagittarian gamblers, so if you feel like taking a punt on something, this week says go for it. CAPRICORN: You’ve weathered certain interpersonal storms recently that blasted your heart, followed by some intense emotional processing. Now as Jupiter the wisdom principle moves forward on a wave of clarity and renewed optimism, so do you, with this week’s crowded house of planets in your seductive sector of erotic exercise… AQUARIUS: Teamwork, partnerships, groups, friends, community, and camaraderie are the main ingredients on this week’s menu, which serves up a heady brew of productive discussions, profitable conversations, and stimulating mind-melds. Along with some head-butting and control freakery, during which never underestimate the power of the well-chosen word. PISCES: Venus in Leo opens your heart, Mercury in Leo opens your mind, Mars in Leo opens your mouth. The planets of drive, love, luck, money, commerce, and creativity all in fire signs are cooking up a passionate casserole destined to heat Piscean waters – so is that you making waves this week?

DANGER CLOSE: THE BATTLE OF LONG TAN

FED FILMS

Danger Close follows what is probably the most well-known battle of the Vietnam War, the Battle of Long Tan – a battle in which young and inexperienced ANZAC troops fought bravely against the VC (Viet Cong) despite being greatly outnumbered and unprepared. Australian director Kriv Stenders felt it was overdue to revisit the sacrifices of the Australian and New Zealand Vietnam veterans made during this time. Blake Howard from Vanity Fair says, ‘Elements of the film ring true but it is patriotic to a problematic extent’. Saying the warlike feeling of the film was in a much more ‘classical manner’ as opposed to the conditions that were present in Vietnam; a dense, suffocating jungle playing on the psyche of the soldiers and guerrilla warfare being the main structure of fighting. Actors Travis Fimmel (Vikings) and Luke Bracey (Hacksaw Ridge), have said their aim was to bring authenticity to their roles and respect the real-life soldiers on which their characters were based. And according to Howard (Vanity Fair), they do an excellent job. The Northern Rivers even has its own star in the film, Lismore-born Nicholas Hamilton (IT), playing one of the young soldiers in the film. Danger Close manages to pay a deep tribute to the Australian and NZ sacrifice while keeping you entertained throughout.

At Federal Hall this Saturday, Federal Kids Film Club will be screening My Neighbor Totoro, a wonderful animated film from the iconic Studio Ghibli. Directed by the legendary Hayao Miyazaki, My Neighbor Totoro is a masterpiece of animation, and a delight for both children and adults. The film starts at 3.50pm, and there will be snacks and drinks available, and a family dinner after the film at 5.30pm. For more information call 6684 9313 or email: federalfilmsociety@gmail.com. The evening film, starting at 7.30pm, is Green Book, a feelgood film about racism in the southern United States in the 1960s. This Academy Award-winning film was directed by Peter Farrelly, who also directed Dumb and Dumber. Dinner is available from 6.30pm, with tea/coffee and a selection of delicious cakes at intermission. This month’s caterers are Eureka School P&C. They will be providing an Indian curry feast, with a selection of dishes including butter chicken, beef massaman, and vegetarian dahl, all served with rice, pappadams, and lime pickles.

Season in balance for Red Devils Byron Community students take on athletics carnival The winning streak of the Byron Bay Red Devils came to an end on Sunday when they were beaten by Murwillumbah 40–32 playing at home. The side will now have to win its last game of the regular season against Ballina, the minor premiers, if it wants to assure itself of a place in the finals. The Byron club will also be hosting Ladies Day. All the action at Red Devil Park from 12.30pm Sunday 11 August.

Ʒſşŕ—ëŔƆƱĶŕĈōĶǔIJëŕīĕſ Story and pic by dogwhistle Sunday’s premier division match between two of the competition’s top teams, South Lismore and the Byron Bay Services Club Rams, proved to be an absolute cliffhanger. Souths opened the scoring 15 minutes in with a blistering thirty metre strike that put the Rams into catchup mode. Diego Vazquez got the Rams back in the game when he tipped the ball over the keeper to equalise just before halftime. With fifteen minutes to play, a defensive lapse from the Rams allowed Souths to gain their lead. Byron continued their urgent pressing game and, with nine minutes to play, Lisandro Luaces made a break down the flank, cut in behind the South’s defence, and beat the keeper to level the score at 2–2.

Rams’ striker Diego Vasquez put away the match winner Both sides cranked up the intensity in the dying minutes. A corner to the Rams saw Luaces drive a cross to Diego Vazquez into the crowded South’s goal mouth. Vazquez’s spectacular aerial back-heel volley into the net broke the hearts of an exhausted South Lismore squad and their vocal and dedicated fans. The entire Byron team put in another exceptional

performance, with standouts (again) Luaces, Vazquez, James Tomlinson, Jono Pierce, Ben Ahern, Rick Muir, and 16-year-old Albs Kay. The 3–2 win puts the Rams back on top – one point ahead of Richmond Rovers, who have an extra game up their sleeve. The rundown to the finals will be against Bangalow this Sunday at the Recreation Grounds from 12.30pm.

Lee wins Longboard Classic

Last Friday Byron Community Primary School held their annual athletics day at the Byron Bay recreation grounds where all students participated with enthusiasm. Students competed in 100 metre, 200m, and 800m running races, as well as shot put, discus, and long jump. The kindergarten students ran a 50m race. They also showed their fitness and stamina levels

after choosing to run in the 800m race, with all of them managing to finish. Parents got involved with a 100m race for both the mums and dads, as well as a three-legged race with their children.

Regionals Thirty-seven students earned the opportunity to represent the school at the North Coast Independent Schools athletics day in Coffs Harbour on August 20.

Rainbow Dragons collect four trophies from four races A small squad from the Lennox-Head based Rainbow Dragon boaters joined 11 other clubs for the Spirit of Macleay 10s Dragon Boat Regatta held at Kempsey last weekend. With only 10 paddlers in the boat, rather than the usual 20, the regatta tested Rainbow paddlers’ endurance and speed, which was up to the task as the club came home with four trophies. The Rainbows Men’s 10s team, with the help of two paddlers from Coffs Coast Club and one from Grafton Club, achieved a first for the club, by winning first place in the 200m sprint final in a time of 54 seconds. However, there was no time for them to celebrate as five of the men then had to jump straight into the mixed10s-final boat, bringing home a third-place trophy. The Rainbow women’s team also excelled, getting

The fourth trophy came with a skillful paddle in the 2000m turn race on Saturday with the Kempsey River Rats winning again and Rainbows managing third place. ‘The club has been focusing on achieving a synchronised racing rhythm – it happened in every race with explosive starts and smooth accelerated gliding of the

boat to the end – very pleasing to witness,’ head coach, Mary Davis said. The Rainbow Dragons will not be resting on their laurels because it has only two weeks until they host their own regatta at Shaws Bay, East Ballina, on August 24 (12.30pm–3.30pm) and 25 (7.00am–3.00pm). Everyone is welcome to come and experience the excitement of dragon boat racing.
