Around 700 people packed themselves into the SCU marquee for the Festival’s opening address. ‘This is the real Geoffrey Robertson, not a hypothetical,’ quipped SCU’s Vice Chancellor Professor Paul Clark by way of introducing him. For about an hour the great man had the audience in his thrall, his eloquence effortless as he talked about human rights and the suppression of free speech throughout history. Studded with amusing asides and anecdotes, his talk flowed fluidly with no reference to notes, covering censorship in literature throughout the ages, his friendship with Salman Rushdie (‘For an apostate he has a Koranic attitude to marriage...’), his wife Kathy Lette, the power of the written word ‘to change the way we think...to ex-

pand our sense of justice and compassion’ and how ‘it conduces to human progress.’ The only reading he did was right at the end when he offered his draft preamble to the Australian Constitution, a glorious, graceful and stirring piece of prose which provoked resounding applause. Day One of the Festival could not have been more magnificent. The sun blazed. As if to compensate for the absence of lyrical creek and grassy knolls of the previous site, artistic embellishment was in evidence throughout the field of Belongil. Flags rippled colourfully in the mild breeze, a tree near the entrance was festooned with books dangling like gifts from its branches. Sculptures by local artists sprang up; paintings formed part of the backdrop for speakers. In the Blue marquee a panel about

the writing of war included the ABC’s former Middle East correspondent Jane Hutcheon who covered the war in Iraq and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict among a host of other events: she spoke movingly and at times even amusingly about this job ‘she wouldn’t swap for anything in the world.’ At one point she mentioned Gaza under siege and how what affected her most was the sound of animals dying. Balinese journalist Wayan Juniartha talked about the Bali bombings which he had to cover in his home-town of Kuta: ‘There is no such thing as objectivity’, he told the hushed audience. The tone was decidedly lighter back in the SCU marquee where musicians Carl Cleves, Don Walker and the hilarious Sam Cutler chatted about real life versus life ‘on the road’. Sam, who lives in a bus and once toured with the Rolling Stones, said, ‘You should try

looking after a band – kids are easy in comparison!’ The Macquarie marquee around midday was jam-packed with mostly middle-aged women who had come to listen to a celebrity-studded panel discuss mid-life crises. There was Mary Moody who, though clearly the articulate and educated guardian of a rich full life, proved ultimately vapid with her final boast to the audience about how much she hated ageing and, like Woody Allen, would prefer to be thirty years younger and stupid. Kristen Williamson read endlessly from notes; Gretel Killeen was surprisingly charming. Meanwhile in the coffee tent the lattes flowed and the cakes despatched; free neck and shoulder massages were advertised alongside wellness checks; people floated and drifted the rather continued on page 2

$3.6m for local education Richmond MP Justine Elliot has welcomed Australian government funding of $3,678,811 to improve teaching and learning across the community education and training sector on the north coast. The funding will be allocated to four local community education and training providers to develop new training infrastructure and upgrade existing facilities. The Byron Region Community College receives $1,448,220, the Australian Diver Accreditation Scheme $1,380,000, Nortec Employment and Training $703,864, and Murwillumbah Adult Education Centre $146,727. ‘This will help to secure economic activity, assist in addressing the impacts of the economic downturn and increase the capacity of the local training sector over the longer term to meet future skills needs,’ Ms Elliot said. ‘This initiative recognises the importance that community education and training providers play in supporting productivity in Australia.’ The funding is part of the $500 million Teaching and Learning Capital Fund for Vocational Education and Training. The federal government announced the funding in December 2008 as part of a $4.7 billion nation building infrastructure package. ‘The Australian government is committed to giving access to skills training so that people have the flexibility and transferable skills to succeed in the workforce,’ Ms Elliot said.

Council defers bluesfest decision Byron Shire councillors voted 5-1 last Wednesday to defer determination of an application for a blues festival at Tyagarah pending further information on a number of issues. They called for more information on flooding impact, traffic management, security, social impact, beach access over the Easter weekend and an agreement outstanding between the bluesfest and the neighbouring pistol club. ■ See story, page 14

Borrow an energy meter from a library Byron Shire Council has purchased five energy meters that can be borrowed from Shire libraries. The energy meters show the electricity consumption, dollar cost and greenhouse gas pollution created from the power consumed by household appliances. ‘With rising energy prices, we expect the meters to be keenly sought after by local residents,’ Mayor Jan Barham said. ‘The meters will help give people control over their electricity bills and will be especially useful for measuring how much energy is used when home appliances are left to idle in standby mode.

Local resident Mitzi Quill tests one of the energy meters.

‘Standby power can account for 10% of electricity in the average home, or over $100 year, and the Power Mate device can quickly reveal how much appliances are actually costing us. ‘Computers, mobile phone chargers, DVD players, televisions, PlayStations and even

electric toothbrush chargers all sit there waiting to be used. Many people don’t realise that even on standby these drain power; that means that around 10% of your electricity bill may be going towards appliances doing nothing. ‘Switching appliances off at the wall is a great start to reduce your energy bill.’ Due to popularity, there may be a waiting list to borrow the devices.

The Pass Café, that uniquely positioned spot for a postlighthouse walk coffee or lazy breakfast over newspapers, is to be closed on Wednesday August 19. Cape Byron Trust has decided to conduct building inspections and any necessary work on the facility prior to putting it out to ‘community consultation’ in order to ascertain what the local community would like to be done with it. Josie Bassett has been running The Pass Café for the past 15 years and feels passionately about this decision. She cannot understand why the café must be closed down and cleared out completely while decisions as to its future are pending. ‘It’s part of the Byron Bay experience,’ she told The Echo, ‘it’s a little bit of Byron.’ Her belief is that once it is closed ‘it’s going to be out of sight, out of mind’ and that the Trust is ‘pre-empting community interest by shutting the facility.’ She feels that it is extremely important that the community

express its desire to keep it going rather than run the risk of its being turned into a tourist information centre with kiosk, or another surf shop. ‘It would be a tragedy,’ she said, ‘to lose that facility... in the trees... A little bit of something that’s natural we still have left in this town.’ She believes that if there is sufficient community support then the place where people, locals and visitors alike, love to come will be reinstated. In a press release Cape Byron Trust Chairperson, Yvonne Stewart, said the Trust is seeking to improve visitor facilities at The Pass and is investigating options to continue to provide improved services for visitors. ‘The Trust is aware there may be some inconvenience during [closure] and will be working towards providing a refreshment facility as soon as possible. We are keen to ensure that the best outcome is achieved through consultation with community. ‘Together, we have an op-

portunity to work out the best option for providing refreshments and visitor facilities at this very special place. We need to get it right for the future. ‘A good example of this approach has been the visitor facilities improvements at Cape Byron where the Trust has recently completed the new path and visitor facilities at Watego’s after lots of consultation with the Reserve users.’

Champagne and sushi circulated throughout the crowd as Marele admitted that the book had taken her four years to write and it was ‘like giving birth to an elephant’. It never gets any easier, she declared. And that was just the first day of the 2009 Byron Bay Writers Festival.

The new Byron Bay Library development application has been out on exhibition and is expected to go before Council on August 27. The new Library will be located in the centre of Byron Bay on the corner of Lawson and Middleton Streets. Byron Shire Mayor Jan Barham said the new library will be a vibrant, interesting and exciting place for the whole community, welcoming people of all ages and backgrounds. ‘The library will be a focus for a wide variety of cultural, learning and recreational experiences,’ she said. ‘A long with areas for quiet study and information-seeking, there are meeting rooms for learning

and lectures and a space designed for exhibitions including travelling library displays, art and craft. ‘In recognition of the strong support and commitment of the Arakwal People in gaining the site for the new library there will be a dedicated room made available for them. ‘The building incorporates sustainable features and has been designed to meet the Green Building Code 5 Star rating. The Byron Bay Library will be the first civic building on the north coast to meet this high standard of sustainable design.’ Cr Barham said the look and feel of the building will also be enhanced with public

art and Council has endorsed the development of an Australia Council Creative Communities Partnerships application. The application will seek to develop partnership opportunities to incorporate art that reflects the history of the region, indigenous culture and community. Council has also established a Project Reference Group (PRG) which will be developing a landscape plan to provide opportunities for the installation of public arts works identified through the process. Friends of the Library spokesperson Bob Levett said he was pleased the project was getting closer to completion. ‘Byron Bay needs this new facility and it will become a won-

derful place for people to meet and learn,’ Mr Levett said. ‘The Friends of the Library has been involved in the development of the project and is thrilled to see this much need facility progressing.’ At a current estimated cost of approximate $5.6 million, the library is being funded through section 94 funds, community funds and Council loans. Council staff are also currently preparing and researching for available funding grants to support construction costs. If the DA is approved, then the project is expected to be built in 2010 and handed over to the librarians in February 2011.

carpooling scheme. While currently limited to employees and students of these organisations, it is anticipated that the scheme will be opened to the wider community during 2010. The free online service for participating organisations presents a great way to save money and help the environment by sharing your journey, said Southern Cross University’s environmental sustainability officer, Kirsty Howton, pointing out that carpooling

can save you time and money, reduce driving stress and wear and tear on the car, enable you to make new friends while giving you the opportunity to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions. You join the scheme by registering on the website www. nrcarpool.org and searching for others going in the same direction as yourself. Each organisation has designated pick up and set down points with branded road signs.

Get ready to run (or walk) to Bruns Story & photo Eve Jeffery

The Mullum to Bruns Walk and Run is on again this weekend and organisers are hoping to build on the promising results of last year’s event with a bigger and better race this year. Earlybird entries have reached about 800 which is almost as many as the total entries for last year. The Mullum to Bruns is a great family event and so far has entrants ranging from 89 year old Richard Kidby and 86 year old Alison Worrall right down to Louis Youl who will celebrate his 107th day on Sunday. Staff and friends from Craig Watson’s Pharmacy are ready to race as the largest group entry with a whopping 24 racers in the team so far. Like most events of this type, the Mullum to Bruns would not be possible without the generous help donated by local groups including the Brunswick Valley Rescue Squad and the Brunswick/Mullumbimby Lions Club who will not only provide numerous volunteers but will also be having a barbecue at Banner Park after the race. Racers will also be treated to free massages at the Housie

Workshop focuses on death and dying ‘Recently, many of us in the Byron Shire have been touched by the death of someone we know, ranging from the quite young to the very old, and anywhere in between,’ says Zenith Virago, one of the authors of The Intimacy of Death and Dying. ‘The more people we know, care for or are connected to within our community, the more we encounter loss and grief. ‘Some of us have been to a funeral that has changed for

the better the way we see death, or how we experience our sadness and loss. Many farewell rites of passage are now called a Celebration of Life. ‘What is it that makes the difference between an event that is dreary and morbid, and sometimes makes us feel worse, or an occasion that makes us feel better than before we started?’ Zenith has spent the past 15 years working with the dying and the bereaved, and she has created many life and death

ceremonies. ‘A good funeral doesn’t just happen,’ she says, ‘it usually takes thought, discussion and preparation. ‘The family and friends are involved and I assist them with guidance, options and direction to decide what’s possible, how they want it to be. Then I pull it all together so it is appropriate, and feels right to them, and honours their loved one. It is all in the understanding and the preparation. ‘Preparation and dialogue are

two of the most valuable things we can learn in order to help ourselves and others when we the time comes and we need to know what to do. ‘It can help us avoid making mistakes and leaving us with regrets. We only get one chance to make it meaningful.’ Zenith as is running her ‘Intimacy of Death and Dying’ workshop in Byron on August 22 and 23.

Byron Bay’s Nature’s Child has just picked up a silver and a bronze award at the 2009 Organic Expo Awards, held in Melbourne. Launched in 2007, the awards aim to recognise excellence in the rapidly growing organics industry. All products entered must be certified organic and are judged on taste, aroma, quality, fitness-for-purpose, packaging, impact on the environment, aesthetics, saleability, labelling, fair trade and Australian-produced. Nature’s Child won Silver for Best New Certified Organic Product (2009) and Bronze for

ganic Baby Essentials Gift Box. Owner of Nature’s Child Jannine Barron told The Echo that they have only entered these awards twice (‘we only enter when we believe we have something really new, really different for the industry’) and they have won both times – the first being a Gold in 2007 for their organic nappy. Jannine started up the business ten years ago in her garage in Byron Bay, launching its first website in 2002. ‘In those days,’ she said, ‘few parents really understood what we were doing and why it was important.’ Business began taking off af-

in 2005 and now the company employs ten local people who work out of spacious premises at the Arts & Industry Park. As well as despatching wholesale to 300 stores around the country there is a mail-order service for on-line customers. ‘Our primary goal at Nature’s Child,’ said Jannine, ‘is to educate parents that you can care for your baby every day using chemical-free, organic cotton re-usable products...’ Competition is very strong at the Expo Awards, with about 100 entries, including items like honey, grape juice, wine, skin care and homewares.

The award-winning film The Burning Season by local filmmakers Cathy Henkel and Jeff Canin was launched recently at Dendy Byron Bay. Narrated by Hugh Jackman, it reveals deforestation’s effects on Indonesian wildlife, specifically orang outangs, and global warming. Originally launched at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York in April, it has since gone on to be screened around Australia at film festivals and select cinemas. It was at the Sydney Film Festival where Melanie Vandervord, corporate events manager for an investment bank, saw the film and was so moved that she decided to host her own screening at Dendy Circular Quay in order to raise funds to help save the orang outangs. It was a huge success, attracting 185 people and rais-

ing $9,000. Then an anonymous donor from New Jersey who had seen it at the Tribeca Film Festival heard about this and agreed to match the proceeds she raised – the result being a total of $20,000. Talking to The Echo Cathy Henkel said, ‘It just shows what one person, a private individual, can do.’ And ‘this is just the start,’ she went on to say. ‘The film is proving to be very successful at getting action where it is needed.’ The World Society for Protection of Animals (or WSPA) has bequeathed $67,000 to the cause. Not only donations have been generated as a result of this documentary but adoptions of orang outangs by

many people moved by their plight. The curator of Customs House in Sydney approached Cathy to ask if she could set up an exhibition based on it: now there are three floors of photos, videos and documentation. A founding member of Screenworks, Cathy Henkel will be in Byron Bay on Thursday August 27 to offer a Master Class on how a documentary reaches an audience and how to get a film into cinemas. She will present a new model for marketing and distribution, relying extensively on the internet. To be held at the new theatre at SAE, it will run from 6pm to 9 pm. Further details can be obtained from Lisa O’Meara at Screenworks on 6687 1599.

Hip hop helps life rhyme for youth Story & photo Lou Beaumont

A group of boys from Mullumbimby High School attending Byron Youth Service’s weekly Youthlinx program are in the midst of a hip hop music production program. The boys are learning how to do beats, write rhymes, use the mic, and record with their course facilitator Jesse Penthaligon. While that all sounds like just good fun, the program has a higher purpose, with the rhymes becoming a place for the boys to put their feelings. Deborah Pearse, BYS Youthlinx Coordinator, told The Echo, ‘They are learning to use the music as a tool to channel their emotions, which is invaluable for boys who seem to find it especially hard to communicate on that level. The key for any teenager to express themselves, succeed and be happy seems to be finding their passion. For Jesse, he got kicked out of school, but once he found music in a course through Mission Australia he got high distinctions all the way.’ Jesse said, ‘The boys that come to the program often come from similar backgrounds to me. I started rhyming when I was drinking and smoking a lot and now I have been clean and

Celebrating Woodstock

Saturday August 15 marks the 40th Anniversary of the Woodstock Festival, an epochal event that gave a name to a generation. To celebrate its legacy – and all things hippie and green – the rainbow dreamers invite you to an old school ‘happening’ featuring ceremony, song and performances from the region at Durrumbul Hall, corner of Coopers Lane and Main Arm Road, Mullumbimby. The evening will kick off with Drumming up the Spirit and Welcome Ceremony at 4pm, followed by a smorgasbord of music, performance, dance and fireshows by the region’s happy hippie art fraternity. The event is a fundraiser for ‘Rainbow Dreaming’, the photo-documentary on the rainbow region that’s been invited to participate in the 40th anniversary of Woodstock celebrations. See more at www. rainbowdreaming.org.

Comment

Climate action mired in politics Volume 24 #10

August 11, 2009

Our sporting complex There have been some grumblings in the sports community about the progress – or lack thereof – on the new sportsfields (and cultural complex) off Ewingsdale Road near the industrial estate. However Byron Shire Council is mindful of the need to get things moving so it can hang onto the whopping $9.5m in federal money for the $14.5m project. It wouldn’t look good on anyone’s CV if that loot slipped away for lack of action. Mayor Jan Barham was upbeat about the project at Council’s meeting last Wednesday. She described it as creating a ‘gateway entrance’ to the town, something Byron Bay has lacked – unless you count the cop shop, Simmo’s or the disused railway. Cr Barham was also mindful of having to meet timelines: ‘We’re all under the microscope with this and I appreciate the work of community members and staff.’ In an ‘in locum’ capacity for the feds, the NSW Department of Commerce has been keeping an eye on the project’s progress and Councillors last Wednesday voted unanimously to adopt the Review of Environmental Factors (REF) document for the site. The project, on 40 hectares owned by Council at 249 Ewingsdale Road, is a big undertaking. The proposal at the moment includes athletics track, associated hockey field and amenities block, general use sporting fields, multi-use sporting fields, storage sheds, cycle track, soccer fields and associated amenities, canteen/kiosk adjacent to soccer fields, visitor information centre, public toilets and associated car parking, caretaker’s residence, bike/skate park, and an indoor facility (possibly containing a swimming pool). While Council so far wants the work considered under usual planning application controls there could be some concern that provisions of the Nation Building & Jobs Fund (State Infrastructure Delivery) Act 2009 could be invoked to exempt it from NSW development control legislation ‘if so authorised by the NSW Infrastructure Co-ordinator General’. (Serious connoisseurs of documentation will have to order a copy of the 471 page REF from Council. It weighs in at 28 megabytes in PDF.) One of the first changes residents will notice is the new roundabout. Some may complain about being slowed down on Ewingsdale Road but I’ll be saying ‘about time’. As with Left Bank Road in Mullum, some motorists tool along Ewingsdale Road at all sorts of speeds without any regard for public safety. According to Phil Holloway, Council’s director of asset management services, the roundabout will go to tender in October and is likely to be constructed by July 2010. Access to the Island Quarry site is being considered in the design process. As to hopes that the Bluesfest and/or Splendour will adopt Council’s complex as their home, forget about it. They will be sticking to their own plans for their own sites at Tyagarah and Yelgun/Wooyung respectively. The horse well and truly bolted before Council could get an events policy into place, a work in progress for several years. Mind you, based on the previous rate of progress, it would have been a few more years before the provisions of the policy were incorporated in a defendable planning instrument. – Michael McDonald, editor

t last weekend’s wonderful Byron Bay Writers Festival, politics once again became a central topic. But the burning issue was not the unlikely popularity of Kevin Rudd nor the predictable travails of Malcolm Turnbull, but the far more substantial matter of climate change. Speaker after speaker expressed frustration and disappointment at the lack of action, and their arguments were overwhelmingly endorsed by enthusiastic audiences. Well, they would say that at the Byron Writers Festival, wouldn’t they? But despite the well funded campaign to convince the populace that the science is not yet settled (The Australian in particular has become a gathering place for hired guns and loonies) the concern extends a lot further than the havens of northern New South Wales. Even in the midst of the economic downturn public support for an emissions trading system has remained fairly solid; polling in June showed 65 percent in favour, a majority of nearly two to one. The public is apparently ahead of the politicians in realising that global warming is not just another item on the electoral agenda, it is a clear and present danger which demands an urgent and decisive response. Where most of our politicians have failed us – and to date the Rudd government is no exception – is that they have insisted on treating climate change not as a grim physical reality but as a political problem which can be fixed with a political solution. And political solutions invariably involve delay, negotiation and eventual compromise. Thus the government’s approach has appeared to be that yes, climate change is a worry; it threatens drastic changes to the weather which will include fire, flood, drought, famine, pesti-

A

lence and death on a huge scale. It will almost certainly lead to huge waves of climate refugees which could precipitate wars on a scale which could threaten the survival of human civilisation. Clearly something needs to be done. But hey, let’s not get carried away. There are other interests involved, like our national advantages as a major coal producer. And after all, the shareholders in the mines and the

the cost and disruption will be. Malcolm Turnbull claims to be concerned about our children being burdened with debt from Rudd’s stimulus packages; he’s certainly not doing them any favours by delaying action on climate change. And would an increase, even a big increase, in electricity bills really be so devastating anyway? History suggests not. In the last decade the price of oil actually trebled, before peaking

The refusal to decouple the legislation for renewable energy quotas from the emissions trading scheme is bloodymindedness, pure and simple. by Mungo MacCallum smelters and the generators all have rights too. So we’ll have to strike a balance. And the balance in its present form means doing not much until it’s too late, and the opposition won’t even accept this gesture. The infuriating part is that most of the angst is unnecessary. Sure, cutting down on the carbon–emitting fossil fuels will cause some short term pain and expense (and I say ‘will’, not ‘would’, because sooner or later it’s going to happen whether we like it or not). Electricity bills will rise, though not to a catastrophic extent, and some jobs would be lost. But costs will be easily manageable in an economy like Australia’s, and at the same time new opportunities will be created in more sustainable industries. The oil companies realise this: at least one is already heavily involved in the production of solar cells. And the real point, emphasised in reports by Nicholas Stern in England and Ross Garnaut in Australia, is that the longer we procrastinate, the greater

(temporarily) in 2008. And we whinged about the cost of filling up the Holden, but we coped: in fact, as you might recall, the economy went through an unprecedented boom. It would be overly optimistic to assume that the next big energy transition will be quite such an easy ride, but it is certainly overly pessimistic to predict the plummeting in living standards for which the opposition is apparently hoping. But this assumes that rational argument will triumph over the politics of the situation which is in itself a pretty sanguine belief. The coalition, of course, is hopelessly confused about it all but in the end will probably pass Rudd’s scheme; if it doesn’t it will not only be inviting terrible defeat at a double-dissolution election, but will also have repudiated and humiliated its leader. Malcolm Turnbull is already in enough trouble; rejection on such a key issue would certainly make him unelectable. But the Rudd government is far from blameless. It has

already muddled and watered down the key recommendations of Ross Garnaut’s 2008 report, which was never all that vigorous to begin with. Now it seems determined to play politics with what is left. The refusal to decouple the legislation for renewable energy quotas from the emissions trading scheme is bloody-mindedness, pure and simple. It is essential to start reducing the power companies’ reliance on coal and oil as quickly as possible. The renewable energy act would require them to get at least twenty per cent of their energy from renewables – solar, wind, tide, geothermal, whatever – by 2020. This is a thoroughly useful and desirable measure in its own right and in spite of Penny Wong’s rhetoric it has nothing whatsoever to do with emissions trading. She is using the issue as a wedge, which may or may not be smart politics, but it is lousy policy. The opposition is willing, even eager, to pass the renewable energy act, and it should be encouraged to do so. But worryingly, this is only one example of what seems to be a less than dedicated approach to climate change. Rudd’s economic stimulus package could have been a great opportunity to encourage a move to renewables, through direct grants and improved infrastructure. Instead almost all the infrastructure money went to upgrading roads, rail and ports to facilitate the export of coal to fuel the power stations of India and China. And when it came to boosting consumer spending, what did he do? Well, he ran down the subsidy for domestic solar power and gave us each $900 to buy a plasma television set. So much for the greatest moral, social and economic challenge of our generation. We expected better.

Exposure to radio waves explained Contrary to claims in a recent article (‘Residents object to tower location’, Echo, August 4) moving mobile phone base stations away from where they are needed will not necessarily reduce exposure to radiofrequency emissions. Well-meaning advice to site base stations more than 300 metres away from a school is based on the mistaken belief that the further a base station is away from people the less they would be exposed to the radio wave emissions it uses to communicate. However, once a call is connected, both mobile phones and their base stations are de-

signed to operate at the lowest levels to make a quality call. As a precautionary approach base stations are constantly adapting their output levels depending on the number of calls they are handling and how far away the handsets are from them. The further a base station is built from a school, the base station will need to operate at a higher power which could actually increase exposures in that area – the very thing such approaches are trying to avoid. In most circumstances the best location to build base stations in order to minimise emissions, is closest to where

those services are required. Also, a nationwide study conducted by the Federal Health Department found that AM radio was by far the most significant contributor of radio frequency emissions in the community (91.2%). Digital mobile phone base stations contributed only a small part of environmental levels (1.4%). The suggested approach would also need to consider other much higher sources of radio waves in the residential environment. The mobile industry has to balance the needs of Australia’s 22 million mobile phone subscribers with local commu-

ent ‘bad debt’ with Council, which required some sort of ‘write off ’ mechanism. While there were several other options available to do this, some quite likely more appropriate, utilising the section 356 donations seemed to be the easiest way for Council to rectify the mistake. I hope that the many hard working volunteers and community group members of our shire – those who applied for, and/or received, small grants to help their continuing work – can understand that the alleged ‘donation’ to BYS is in fact an accounting solution, and nothing more. At the same time, I would like to acknowledge Council’s continued support, via provision of two low-cost venues, through which our programs to support young people and their families can be delivered in the Shire.

Northern Rivers Environmental Defenders Office (Echo, August 4). The state owned company TransGrid which supplies the infrastructure by which power is transported seems intent on pushing ahead with this project, even though there are many reasons why it should not proceed. Firstly, as Dr Byrne points out, TransGrid’s own statistics suggest power consumption in the Northern Rivers area will level off over the next seven years. 2014/15 consumption levels are projected to be about what they are now. This makes sense as we are all doing our best to consume less electricity. New buildings must comply with regulations that make them more energy efficient. TransGrid is still working off statistics produced in 2007 that forecast significant increases in demand, even though these stats have been revised. TransGrid has chosen to ignore this. Secondly there are new projects coming on line that will produce cleaner energy for the area, cogeneration plants at

I am writing to provide clarification about the recent advertisement of Byron Shire Council’s s356 community donations. As quite a few people have stopped me in the street, I think it’s only fair that everyone in our community has the correct information. Council’s advertisement included a very generous $32,387 being donated to Byron Youth Service (BYS). I would like to assure everyone that BYS has not, and will not, be receiving any money from Byron Shire Council in this year’s s356 community donations. In February 2004, Byron Shire Counciillors voted to cease requiring BYS to pay rent at both the Cottage in Mullumbimby and at the Byron Youth Activity Centre (YAC). Unfortunately despite this decision, invoices adding up to $32,387 were generated and continued to be sent to BYS for payment. BYS did not pay these invoices, as Council had already clearly voted on this issue, however the invoices kept coming. This accounting error led to BYS generating an appar-

the Broadwater and Condong sugar mills and the Metgasco gas fired power station at Casino. These will adequately cover any increase in consumption over the next decade or more. Thirdly, and not raised in Dr Byrne’s article, is the fact that many rural landholders from Dumeresq to Tenterfield will have 35-metre tall steel towers running through their properties carrying 330KV high voltage power lines to provide the Northern Rivers with increased coal fired power, if this project goes ahead. The NSW government will spend 227 million tax payer dollars on a project that is not required and potentially wrecking the lives of many people who live in the vicinity of these power lines. Lip service is being paid to carbon reduction by this state government and we should demand that alternatives such as those already planned should take precedence over this outdated, carbon polluting project that TransGrid would like to build. Residents of the Northern Rivers should stand with our friend in the Dumeresq/ Tenterfield area and oppose this project. Email TransGrid Action Group for more information at TAGtenterfield. bigpond.com.

The role of government in festival planning prohibited the approval of this event site previously would protect it under state jurisdiction as well. Why else do we bother with zonings? Of course if the pesky zonings get in the way they could always bypass democracy and take the option of simply passing a special ‘Cultural Events – Splendour in the Grass’ Bill like they have recently done to allow the World Rally to go ahead in the Northern Rivers. This allows the imposition of an event on a community irrespective of the rationalised impacts on community and the environment. Let’s hope the NSW Department of Planning recognises that the only ‘State Significance’ of this DA is its ability to be knocked back by Byron Shire Council using current in-force legislation and hands Mark Skelsey it back to the relevant elected Media and Communica- indivduals.

Furthermore, the developer is typically required to respond to key issues raised in these submissions and for this response to be made publicly available.

less invasive parking crowds. Surely the business owners of the arts and industrial estate would also welcome the move – it would mean more tourists could visit their businesses during this peak tourist time. Mr Bailey’s arguments are full of flaws. Surely a move to an area of considerably fewer residents would be a better result for more residents. As for noise, this area is already bisected by a highway and an airstrip, between the site and the homes. The flood evacuation plan? Do you think the flood would happen between acts? Usually we have quite a few days’ notice of floods. As for the 15,000 leaving the site, a lot of those partygoers catch buses now and at Tyagarah, more would take that option. The old highway seems a perfect place for a slow release of traffic. I cannot fathom how you think Mullumbimby and Brunswick will become no-go areas. If anything, businesses there may benefit but not much more than now. Not everyone will camp onsite, most will still stay in accommodation as they do now. As for your statement that festivals

don’t do much for local economy, I’ve seen quotes as high as $16 million, so quite a few businesses obviously benefit. Little economic benefit, eh? Another dubious quote from you was that most goods and services were provided in-house – just beautiful jargon, John, but what do you mean? You say it should be close to town? Where would you suggest? For mine, a move to a bigger site with less impact on less residents, with miminal impact (most amenities to be brought in then removed) is a better option. Lastly, John, Bluesfest and Splendour are different festivals. Different demographics, different organisations and looking for different locations. Don’t try to win people over by putting them in the same category.

individuals, but an aerial view in Google Maps suggests there might be 15 -30 buildings or cottages on the site. If enough of them were sold along with a one acre plot of land that they currently sit on, for whatever the market will bear, then the cost of the purchase could easily be recouped and the threat of overdevelopment could be extinguished.

Pat Tierney

Lennox Head ■ Concern about the behaviour

of the organisers of major festivals in this area is beginning to take on gargantuan proportions. At last week’s council meeting, it was alleged that the organiser of the Blues Fest, Peter Noble, after claiming in festival publicity that the blues fest site at Tyagarah will be

used only once a year for the festival, in fact refused to sign such an undertaking with local residents. Why? Now we have the Splendour organisers under their Parklands banner submitting to Council a DA for a subdivision at their North Ocean Shores site with what looks like to me the sole objective of creating access roads to ‘dwelling sites’ in order to get around the Land and Environment Court’s decision to refuse access across the environmental protection zone. Why? Because they need that subdivision and its resultant access roads to ‘dwelling sites’ in order to have a chance at gaining approval from the state government. Well, they may think that they operate within the law but in my opinion they are making an ass of the law and we, the residents, are being treated with contempt. We can stop this insanity if we act together. Four major festivals in the north and who knows how many at Tyagarah is a complete recipe for mayhem and the fact that it even looms as a possibility with our current political incumbency is disturbing.

What if the Council bought it as a temporary investment so that a small portion of the property could be resold by as maybe five or ten individual

Anyway, I am not a financial planner, I’ll leave that to others. The point is that we would never again be threatened by a massive development on this site, such as nearly happened over the

Rifling Council’s soiled purse yields little change Any Councillor can investigate any improprieties in Council’s domain, and despite many of us alerting Councillors to the imminent dangers, and Ephraim Sella’s open and regular warnings over the past two years, you blocked your ears, scratched your heads, sat on your hands and made no attempt to stop the bleeding. That’s because the majority of elected Councillors, now and previously, have very little or no business skills. Throughout last year’s election campaign, Mayor Jan Barham, argued vehemently that ‘Council had not lost any money on their investments’. She denied this strongly at Mullumbimby’s election forum after being questioned by Ephraim. Her argument was strongly rebuked by myself and others seeking to serve their communities, but many constituents bought Jan’s argument hook, line and sinker. Fact: The longer you hang onto a bad investment, the more

you lose, in this case $1.65 million of ratepayer’s $s, and so far, this is the only CDO that Council is prepared to disclose. Our Mayor states (July 30, News) that ‘the state government is eroding local government powers’; but clearly Council ignores its own people. Council had the power to clean up the development application in Main Arm, that still has many major problems to overcome, but our Green Council completely ignored more than 300 submissions against this proposal, and approved it anyway. Knowing this, Main Arm constituents overwhelmingly voted them back in again. You know, if you don’t make any changes, then everything remains the same. Tina Petroff

getting things terribly wrong. Instead of moving forward to finally get to the bottom of the issues that are likely to cost Byron ratepayers a fortune, he ventures, in his ‘response’ to my letter, way off target and straight into fairyland with some gobsmacking, baseless, crap assumptions on totally unrelated issues. Also, given some of the things Tom went out on a limb to say about Ephraim Sella and his views at the time, I would have thought a humble unreserved apology was more appropriate. Unfortunately it seems that this would be expecting too much, as petty Tom, based on what becomes apparent, is a traditional politician with all the cheap tricks of the trade. Byron investments: fact is that we are currently nowhere near the bottom of the issue. It is therefore regrettable that The Echo has restricted the free flow of discussion on the issue by not printing a detailed letter of

mine, specifically dealing with questionable investments. It raises the question as to why. I do urge The Echo to print the letter in question and make Byron Shire investments an issue for rigorous debate as it deserves in line with potential losses that could top $20 million. I will certainly make efforts to keep on top of issues that are important for debate, no matter how hard it may be to get a fair chance to be heard. Rene Thalmann

Noosa ■ I note with concern the absence of a public outcry regarding the the careless squandering of large sums of public funds entrusted into the hands of the Council and its professional staff. Are we still in shock that moneys assigned for the public good of this shire have literally evaporated or have we fatalistically ascribed our loss as unavoidable collateral damage of the GFC?

Fact is that ultimately neither ratings agency recommendations nor state government guidelines provide a credible cover let alone an excuse for failing to exercise due care and diligence in assessing potential investment risks. One would surely expect Council to err on the side of caution. The book Investing for Dummies states as two of its most fundamental rules to a) never invest in a financial product you do not fully understand and b) always read the prospectus of the product you consider to invest in. Proper risk assessment is what we have a right to expect from this Council and not gambling or following the lemmings. The report by Demison Financial Advisory indicates that further substantial financial losses lie ahead and Council’s avoidance of more catastrophic losses is a matter of sheer luck rather than prudence. We are still stuck with millions of dollars in ‘difficult to exit’ investments

which in plain English translates to: they are so dodgy that there is no market for them. The buck stops somewhere. Investment decisions were made by individuals in Council and they are responsible for the consequences of their careless actions, dabbling with public moneys in high risk ventures. They owe residents an apology and should resign so others can pick up the pieces. Let’s be clear here : setting aside hindsight wisdom, this mess was avoidable . As the possibility of an independent inquiry is rather remote I can only hope that the precautionary principle will feature more prominently in Council’s future actions. And finally, I see no need for Council to engage a financial advisor in the future as hopefully no further excursions into the world of ‘clever finance’ are ahead. Let’s save this money for sportsfields and potholes. Elmar Wolters

Fluoride in the water Jo Immig (Echo, August 4) writes that water fluoridation is ‘back on the agenda’. I am for fluoride addition to the diet of pregnant mothers and young children. My daughter, who received fluoride, is completely caries-free at 40, and her child was prescribed fluoride. That said, I am against supplying fluoride in the water supply. Some mothers and children never drink tap water. The rest of us don’t need it. It’s poisonous to fish and plants. What is the real motive for fluoridation? Why not ‘iodation’? Iodide (added to table salt) is essential for life. It’s profit. Fluoride is available as toxic waste. The Earth Island Journal says it best – ‘Fluoridating drinking water with recovered pollution is a cost-effective means of disposing of toxic waste. The fluorosilicic acid would otherwise be classified as a hazardous toxic waste on the Superfund Priorities List of toxic substances that pose the most significant risk to human health and the greatest potential liability for

manufacturers.’ (1.) Rous Water provides 13,000 megalitres of water a year (2.) – at the rate of 0.5 parts per million fluoride, this would be disposal of about 240,000 litres of concentrated fluorosilicic acid solution (six tank trucks) a year into Rous water. Industry profits – we pay. References: 1. www.earthisland.org/ eijournal/fluoride/fluoride_ phosphates.html 2. www.rouscc.nsw.gov.au/ content/uploads/PR_2170_ EIS.pdf Charles Sawyer

Pesky black holes The Hadron Supercollider began firing its high-speed protons in September last year, but after just nine days of particle firing, there was an explosion, a gas leak and the project was shut down. Initial reports said it would take several days to repair, then weeks to repair, then months to repair and eventually, that it would be running before June 2009. Wikipedia now has a date of November 14, 2009, for the Collider to be fully operational again. Last week, the Sydney Morning Herald (August 5) reported that ‘it could be years, if ever’ before the Collider is working normally again. New Scientist magazine (May 23, 2002) stated that the Hadron Supercollider

of the Belongil spit and a year round beach (Letters, August 4) which was the preferred option of Council’s Coastline Management Study. This was costed at around $25 million in 2003. Three years later, following further investigation by Council, the estimated cost was $53 million (Echo, 31/1/06). Council, very sensibly, voted unanimously not to pursue this option further. The resolution (06-1057) was moved by that well-known greenie front man, Cr Ross Tucker. If Belongil residents want to be seen as anything but a bunch of whingeing million-

been promised longer than this. I think Jan Barham is completely wrong in stating that the rock works only affect the beach for 200 metres – one wonders if she has actually been on the beach to observe for herself. The Wollongbar if I remember old photos correctly settled parallel to the beach so it would only slightly divert the current, not obstruct it. I think there is enough evidence of the damage done by the rock wall that I wonder that Belongil landowners haven’t collectively sued Council to force them to modify it, not that I suggest that they do this but they should have enough collective clout to force some action.

Yet as I have said before, as have others, that most buyers of Belongil land were made aware of the conditions pertaining to that particular beach, but Council’s attitude seems to fatalistically give up on the situation as un-remediable when this is not the case. Walls of eco-bags only delay erosion processes but do nothing to improve it, whereas swales could do so and the groynes could be modified to minimise their effect. It should also be kept in mind that there are further rock works confrontational to sand flow at the site of the old jetty.

Council defers Tyagarah blues festival DA decision Michael McDonald

Byron Shire councillors voted 5-1 last Wednesday to defer determination of an application for a blues festival at Tyagarah pending further information on a number of issues. They called for more information on flooding impact, traffic management, security, social impact, beach access over the Easter weekend and an agreement outstanding between the bluesfest and the neighbouring pistol club. Moving to to defer, Cr Tom Tabart said he would not be happy ‘until these matters are resolved. Traffic management is still a mess. Security [phone] hotlines aren’t good enough. ‘Social impact hasn’t been addressed. What impact for instance would people full of booze and pills have arriving at the Bruns pub off “on pleasure bent”, as they say? ‘As with Splendour this has not been looked at at all. This Shire’s amenity is being impinged upon by big events. ‘At this stage I need to see a

lot more work before I’m happy to vote for or against.’ Speaking against the motion, Cr Ross Tucker said, ‘I don’t think these reasons give enough guidance to staff. Consent condition 54 says there needs to be a formal written agreement with the pistol club before it can go ahead. ‘These [concerns over flooding, security] are fictitious, imaginary circumstances. You can just imagine anything you like. ‘It’s one festival a year with no structural work.’ Seconding the motion, Cr Diane Woods was concerned about flooding and traffic impact. ‘I’m a great supporter of festivals but this approval is for five years. If it was for a one year trial, I’d say “Fine, give it a go.”’ Crs Staples and Morrisey had concerns that laser levelling of the site might expose acid sulphate soils. Cr Staples said the carting of wastewater from the site created ‘a dreadful carbon footprint’. Mayor Jan Barham said, ‘I do support the bluesfest – I re-

the Shire] or family-based tourism.’ Following the council vote Vickii Cotter, Commercial & Business Affairs Manager from the Bluesfest team, issued a press release which said: ‘We completely understand the need for councils to make absolutely informed decisions, and we’re working closely with Council to provide the information and clarity requested. ‘Much of this required data is contained in our development application along with additional reports provided to the Council, so it’s essentially a question of highlighting the specific information required, or providing updated facts as needed to Councillors.

member it at The Piggery in the late 80s – but it has grown over time and that’s one of the issues. Sometimes growing and changing is not good. ‘It’s gone from three days to five days. At some time there needs to be a dialogue as to if that’s what the town wants. ‘Their business impacts on all of us. There seems to be a lack of trust. For an area with a reputation for peace, love and brown rice, it must be the most angst-ridden, paranoid place in the world. ‘Do we not trust this is for only one festival a year? Apparently not.’ In his right of reply Cr Tabart said, ‘This site isn’t Red Devils or Belongil, it’s a completely different scenario. The main thing that worries me is a lack of an evacuation plan. ‘I suspect it will go ahead and it will be a suck-it-and-see

situation. It can be taken out of our hands at any time.’ Councillors also voted 5-0 – Cr Tucker had left the chambers – in favour of Cr Barham’s motion to see if a clause could be inserted into planning documents to restrict use of the Tyagarah site to one festival a year. Crs Heeson, Richardson and Cameron were absent from the extraordinary meeting, which was held in councillors’ assigned winter break.

Public opinion During public access earlier in the day, consultants Chris Power and Greg Alderson spoke in favour of the application while a number of residents spoke against, mostly on the grounds outlined by Cr Tabart. Mr Power pointed to the festival’s iconic cultural status and its awards for envi-

ronmental best practice. David Stebbing for the Cape Byron Pistol Club said the club had been trying to negotiate an agreement with bluesfest management for 13 months but so far ‘all we’ve got is “Stand on your head, drink a glass of water and whistle Dixie”.’ The problem for the club is that the proposed bluesfest land is a fallout area for stray projectiles. Claiming he spoke for the Byron Ratepayers Association, Tyagarah Sustainable Community Alliance and the Coalition for Festival Sanity, John Bailey described the festival proposal as ‘a recipe for disaster. It abuts the nature reserve and will be huge and disruptive. ‘You cannot make a decision until an Events Policy has been developed. You need to decide if you want a party image [for

‘Determine locally’ ‘As part of the local region for 20 years, it is important to Bluesfest that our DA is determined by our local council. We employ local staff, most of our patrons come from the local region, and we provide a regular and significant economic boost to the Shire and its businesses each year. ‘Bluesfest looks forward to working with neighbouring residents and ensuring the festival poses as minimal an impact upon them as possible. ‘The Bluesfest office will continue to maintain an open policy of communication and encourage residents to speak at length with us about any issues whatsoever.’ If local residents wish to find out more about the Bluesfest DA, they can contact Vickii Cotter on vickii@bluesfest. com.au.

All children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and many other children suffer from sensory dysfunction, which arises from the brain’s inability to arrange information received from the environment for an appropriate functional behaviour. ‘This results in children being extremely sensitive to particular sensations like loud noises, soft touch and specific smells,’ said Zoe Webster from the Byron Shire Early Intervention Service. ‘They will often react very strongly by screaming uncontrollably or not being able to stop running or hitting.’ The Service is receiving resources to run an evidence based music therapy program to assist children with sensory dysfunction through the Splendour in the Grass 2009 Community Grants Program. ‘This will make an incredible difference to our service,’ said Zoe, whose team works with 35 children under six years of age in the Byron Shire identified as having the highest priority of

needs. ‘The money means that we can establish a specialised service that we have not had the capacity to do previously. It will also enable these families to increase their connections within the community.’ Splendour also put the Byron Shire Early Intervention Service in touch with Belinda Tucquet from Hummingbird Music Therapy, who is now donating her time to support the service.

Each year Splendour organisers select community groups as beneficiaries of funds raised through a $2 contribution from every event ticket sold. This year $35,000 is being distributed between five not-for-profit groups. These are Byron Community and Cultural Centre ($15,420), Byron Bay Rural Fire Brigade ($7,500), The Uncle Project ($5,000), Rainforest Rescue ($5,000) and Byron Shire Early

Intervention Service ($1,480). Since 2002 Splendour has given $230,000 to community groups. Priority is given to group located close to the event site or those with a Byron Shire wide service. ‘The grants are one way we can give something back to our host community,’ said Splendour organiser Jessica Ducrou. ‘We also give lots of Splendour tickets to community groups for their own fundraising purposes like raffles or auctions.’ The Byron Bay Rural Fire Brigade received 37 initial applications from Year 9 and 10 Byron High School students for a ten week fire program assisted by the Splendour grant. ‘We were expecting five applications and would have been thrilled with ten but 19 have commenced the program,’ said Stuart Amos, brigade president. ‘This is an incredible outcome for us and has prompted us to look at commencing a cadet brigade at the Suffolk Park station.’ www.echo.net.au

Nature’s storms expose our key values Story & photo Mary Gardner

While my friend braved a winter swim, I wandered right up along the damaged sand banks. Dead and dying branches and tree trunks formed a labyrinth. Small birds I usually saw further back from the open coast flitted through this maze. Has this damage from June’s storms become a new edge to their forest? Then, at eye level up on the sand bank, I noticed the bright hopeful green spread over a small clearing. ‘Look here!’ I called out. My friend was now out of the water and toweling off. He picked his way over through the branches. ‘Why, it’s bitou bush,’ he said. Hundreds of seedlings all less than 60mm tall were jumping at the chance to fill the space opened up by the storm. We looked further along and there was another clearing all verdant green. We also saw seedlings sprouting sideways out of the sand bank. Their roots were in the black edge of humus now exposed to the sun, once buried by half a metre of sand. These seedlings were undaunted by recent aerial herbicide spraying or the vulnerability of such an exposed location. Estimates are that in bitou country there are about 5,000 seeds to the square metre.

Ripping up dunes We chatted about what we knew. Bitou bush, native to South Africa, was introduced to quickly stabilise dunes ravaged by sand mining. The damage was enormous and urgent. People were displaced. Tonnes of dunes were ripped open for the minerals of black sand: rutile, zircon, gold and titanium. Bitou bush was thought to save the day. Nowadays, our perspective of coastal zones has changed somewhat. Although sand mining continues elsewhere on the east coast, here and there we begin to see what is lost. We pine for native vegetation. There are still people alive who remember the country the way it was once. But now, in some 60% of the NSW coast, bitou bush grows of its own accord. The way back to a Garden of Australia seems blocked. This pattern of ‘ravage and remorse’ happens in other zones too. Forests of trees were cut and indeed are still being cut. Perched in trees have been and still are koalas, awake for only four to five hours a day. These iconic Australian creatures weather storms every bit as brutal as the coastal ones. They feed on selected trees in landscapes being urbanised or agriculturalised. There are fewer trees. There are new difficulties getting from one to www.echo.net.au

The thrill of the first whale Still time to submit photos

A whale surfaces near the charter boat. Photo Brian Grant. Victoria Cosford

The barest breeze ruffled the glassy water out the back of the Fishermen’s Co-op at Brunswick Heads. About thirty of us settled into the bright red RIB – or Rigid Inflatable Boat – which was to take us out beyond the bar to look for whales. The mid-winter’s day, for such a pursuit, could not have been more perfect. Byron Bay Eco Charters is an organisation conducting ‘Whale Watching and Dolphin Adventure Tours’. Rowena our guide suggested that seating up the front was a little bumpier and for ‘the more adventurous’; having breakfasted somewhat grandly, I chose some seats toward the back (‘for the more chilled-out’, Waz the skipper kindly commented.) Gulls squawked across the river and pelicans slid soundlessly along its surface as we fastened our life-vests. ‘We are retracing the route the earliest settlers will have taken’, Rowena began, before launching into a brief history of the cedar cutters, the wood being floated downriver then loaded on to the waiting schooners. Even before we had passed the bar a bottlenose dolphin

had broken the shining surface of the water. And then we were off, flying across the turquoise and almost instantly encountering a small pilot whale with another dolphin nearby. The whales, Rowena explained, were on their northern migration from the Antarctica, to give birth to their young in the warmer waters. I was beginning to wonder if the capacity to spot whales required a genetic predisposition: I’d barely glimpsed that first whale and have long been accustomed to just missing the many whales my partner constantly spots over the winter months. Everyone else in the boat seemed to be squeaking with the excitement that comes with regular glimpses of tails and fins and ‘footprints’. We were nearly at the Cape by now, the engine stilled so that we were just rocking gently – and suddenly there it was, a whale within metres of our vessel, glossy rump bulging out of the water before sinking back down. I could see it! I could now proclaim that, yes, whales do exist! At that point Rowena explained that we were about to listen to a hydraphone which would convey the noises the

whale was making – its song. And sure enough after several minutes the sounds began, a little like wind in a tunnel, then like a violin being tuned, then a bellowing cow, then a cello. It was spine-tingling and enchanting – though nothing prepared us for the apparition of the whale beside the boat, so close we could have reached out and touched it. Its massive sleek body moved all the way around us, unhurried and incurious, and all the adults turned into over-excited children with smiles wide enough to split our faces. ‘I’m just dirty I never charged any of you,’ exclaimed organiser Sean Morris – but he was grinning as he said it. And shortly afterwards it was time to head back, our two hours over and most richly satisfied. ‘Even if you don’t see a whale,’ Sean was saying,’ it’s just gorgeous to be offshore there.’ But we did see a whale.

Due to the large volume of last minute entries, the Simple Pleasures Photo Competition has been extended to 4pm Friday August 14, giving participants an extra week to enter their photographs. Five judges will evaluate entries based on technical merit, artistic interpretation, originality, charm/character and depiction of the theme ‘All the great things are simple’, a quote from Sir Winston Churchill. Following the judging night an exhibition of entries will be mounted in shop windows around the CBD of Brunswick Heads from Saturday August 22 to Friday September 25 and the community will have an opportunity to vote for their favourite photograph for the People’s Choice award until Friday September 11. ‘So far we have distributed in excess of 200 entry forms through the Brunswick Heads Visitors Centre and fielded dozens of online enquiries; the quality of the work is outstanding this year,’ says Lanie Loughlin event coordinator. ‘It is particularly exciting to see more entries in the categories 12yrs and under and 13 to 18yrs.’ Twelve finalists will be announced in The Echo on Tuesday September 8 and invited to attend the prize award ceremony held on Sunday September 13 when winners and runnersup will share in a prize pool

Mullum ex-students enjoy breakfast Members of the Mullumbimby Ex-Students Association who got together for breakfast recently enjoyed not only the breakfast and the reunion, but some were seeing the refurbished school campus for the first time, as guests of the High School at the special NAIDOC Week assembly. The assembly heard president Neville Marks draw a parallel between the aims of the Association and the theme for this year’s celebrations ‘honouring our Elders, nurturing our youth’, which Mr Marks said reflected the hopes of the association to support and help students at the school. Among those who attended were Reg Byrnes of Mullumbimby, the oldest exwww.echo.net.au

student in the group who left school in December 1941, and Arthur Campbell, now of Corowa, who enjoyed catching up with friends and family in the district. Proceeds of the breakfast went to the project being sup-

ported by the Association, the purchase of an electronic lectern for the school auditorium. Information about the Association is available from the secretary, Robyn Gray, on 6688 4356 or mhexassn@ bigpond.com.

Hay bales, saddles and cowboy costumes composed the setting for the launch of The Country and Western Alphabet in Byron Bay recently. A joint effort by Paul McNeil and Barry Divola, it is the third in a series entitled Rockin’ Alphabets and is guaranteed to appeal ‘to kids’ sense of the ab-

surd, while tickling the funnybones of adults.’ Paul McNeil is a local man who worked as a Mambo artist for twenty years before getting together with well-known journalist and author Barry Divola to create the themed series in the ‘music genre’. There are, he told The Echo, another twenty books in the series to come.

Meanwhile he still does some work for Mambo but in addition owns SeaCell Surfboards and Gallery at the Byron Arts and Industry Park. The Country and Western Alphabet’ published by Love Police, will be at all good bookstores from August 15 or online now at www.lovepolice. com.au. The recommended retail price is $27.95

Enamel your toothâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best friend In a healthy tooth, the enamel is the hard outer surface that is a clean, bright semitranslucent colour (preferably white). The condition and colour of the enamel can be aďŹ&#x20AC;ected by many factors such as medications, smoking, poor nutrition, coloured foods, general wear and tear and the restorative material used underneath the enamel.

Plaque build up on the enamel surface and around the tooth can be a cause of discolouration and left untreated, can lead to gum disease and tooth decay.

Ancient Forward is the latest release by singer songwriter Saritah. A one time resident of the Byron Shire, this West Australian girl packed her bags to set up shop in Melbourne where she is quietly making her mark. The album is beautifully produced by collaborator Paulie B traversing that terrirory between world music, reggae and roots. At times I was reminded of the sassy lyrics of a Nenah Cherry album I owned a thousand years ago. But with Saritah itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s softer, and infinitely more cosmic. We spoke briefly about putting the album together. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;When we were putting together the track Right Way Home we got a great drummer (Mark Henman) and decided to loop him â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you know, cut him up and loop him up. I used to be a lot more of a purist and have everything appear on the album as it was played but not anymore! â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We invited great bass player Shannon Green to lay a phat groove which he did and we had it done and we thought the theme of the album â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ancient forwardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this thing about the ancesterol within us all, and we asked Cievash who is an Iranian and he played a Neah â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a Persian flute, he also playd Daf, Kamanchi and did some singing. It was one of the highlights of that session, he just played and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like he just bought the desert into

Brisbane, into the studio. After he stopped playing there was this profound silence, it was amazing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it really took the recording to another level. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The same sort of thing happened when we recorded Serious Times. It was the first track we started on for the album and Paulie was inspired by Nyabinghi tradional drumming and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the same beat we put on there but it was the inspiration. The four

of us would sit around with one mic with a different hand drum and get this heart beat rhythm.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Saritahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical relationship with Paulie B began back in 2002 when he was playing bass for George. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;He started this studio in Brisbane and we often talked about making an album together. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I guess I trusted him because

we had instant chemistry as friends and viewed the world in similar ways, you know, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re vegos, love reggae and love phat grooves and world music.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Tall Tales...

Mandy Nolan

HEARING VOICES If James Joyce had worn an i-pod he would never have been able to write Ulysses. This stream of consciousness masterpiece is testament to the rambling incoherent genius of one’s inner monologue. For hundreds of pages he slips from thought to thought… a random inner narrative featuring subconscious musings about life, sex and the universe. The i-pod creates constant interference, the inner voice’s only hope is to give up and sing along. ‘And I still haven’t found what I’m looking for…‘ What happens to us when we mute our inner auditor? Will we remember to pick up the chicken after work? Or is that children… Will we call mum and wish her Happy Birthday for yesterday and remember to go online to order dust bags for the stupid vacuum cleaner? Will we come up with an idea for a novel about the alternate universe that exists in the belly button, or marvel at the size of our arse on the security camera while justifing why you really deserve those $200 shoes, and shit chips taste good, better do my tax return and is that strange lump on my foot toe cancer? Didn’t Bob Marley die of toe cancer? Mafia. No. Conspiracy of some sort, seems unlikely but then reggae can be annoying. My nose is cold. Did I buy batteries? Hope the kids don’t find my vibrator. Think I left it on the table. Bloody hell, I forgot to put the bin out. Is it yellow lid day? Put it out anyway. Did they have wheelie bins in the bible? Jesus could miracle them out and stay in bed… We stop having all these

thoughts simultaneously as we bludgeon our personal chat rooms with the i-pod. I’m not a fan of me-music. Music is meant to be shared, not stuffed in your ear like a tiny tampon. Plug yourself in and you have turned off, musically anethesised and resistant to thought. I’ll admit it, the inner monologue can be annoying. It’s like a constant reminder of what a mindless moron you really are. It’s like the fluff filter in the clothes dryer, leaving you holding a handful of metaphysical lint going, where the freaking hell did that come from? Listening to that voice, that constant mental flickering is a bit like channel surfing. Generally there’s nothing you want to watch, but you can’t stop doing it. It’s the personal narrator that mediation teachers try and duct tape, that wicked personal commentator constantly twittering your reality with subversive thoughts. The inner voice refuses be crossexamined ‘What are you thinking.’ ‘Nothing’. Nothing is a lie. An active healthy overstimulated mind is noisy. It’s just too embarrassing, to answer truthfully. ‘I was thinking about how I needed to buy zucchini.’ That doesn’t go down well when you’re making love. If we were totally truthful about what we were thinking no one would ever be going down again. The i-pod stops you noticing. Its stops silence getting in. It stops you thinking. It’s where you create. The inner monologue is our emotional and spiritual GPS, a bizarre non linear navigation program for life. Shut it out and you’ll get lost. Open your ears and your mind won’t fallow.

Celebrating Woodstock It’s time to let your hippie hair down and break out those paisley pants and those sheepskin vests, it’s been 40 years since Woodstock and to celebrate there’s a gig at Durrumbul Hall on Saturday, marking the day with ceremony, song and celebration. The day will also include a people’s call to rally against the Repco Car Rally that threatens to blacken the green shires that make up the Wollumbin caldera. The evening will kick off with Drumming up the Spirit at 4pm, followed by a welcome ceremony. Featured acts include: Soulman, Nakula, Sueno, Little Musical Elves, Kevin James & friends, Bunna Lawrie and friends, Hiphop Prophetess Mothers, bellydance by Lotusdevi plus more. The evening will end with a fireshow by Pyrodragons and friends. Mandala artwork by Trancenhance; Flags by Benny Zable; Lights by Squiffy Vision & Sound by Adam Pippin. Donation: $10 or more if you can.

Coffee in Your Veins! Blood Type Coffee will be performing their ‘special blend’ of acoustic folk rock originals this Thursday night at the Rails. Percolating with melody, story and improvisation, they use the wonderful tone of effect leaden bass, acoustic guitar, drum kit and congas to journey inside the emotion of Waz Porter’s well crafted pop songs. Come and infuse yourself in the aromas of Blood Type Coffee.

In 2009 Kaisha won an NCIEA Dolphin award for best Rock/ Alternative song Into This. Accompanying herself with acoustic and electric guitars, loop pedals and stomp box rhythms she appears at the Bangalow Hotel on Saturday. Her voice has depth as she soars through her songs, exploring realms of dark and light, from soft subtle heart felt tones to wild untamed expression. Kaisha is inspired by her Middle Eastern origins and passion for truth as she captures and touches the soul of her audience, weaving her way through an exciting performance.

Nick & Liesl Two unique voices, flowing harmonies and captivating songs seem to bring Nick and Liesl a loving reception wherever they go. Their distinctive sound is the coming together of two singer/ songwriters with influences ranging from Nick’s love of Cat Stevens and James Taylor to Liesl’s classical songbooks and the local folk music of her childhood home Sweden. Although only two people, the pair present a sound that fills large theatres and small village churches alike. Their stories are many and varied, as is their performance, with each switching between instruments along with the ever-present stomp box and tambourine. The Rails on Tuesday.

Performing Bacharach, Sinatra, Van Morrison and Carol King, amongst others â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all with a slight twist. With some tasty originals thrown in, dinner will digest well in the warm setting of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Boloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; - Saturday 6.30pm.

Satori Showcase Satori is the place to be on Thursday as Tim Stokesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Songwriter Showcase features three brilliant acts, with free entry and tasty tapas, meals

and drinks available. The Lucky Wonders (yes they were called Get Lucky) while rocketing to number two on the ReverbNation Local Folk Chart, are busy recording their much anticipated debut album with Anthony Lycenko (of Pete Murray fame). Joining them are sublime three-piece Omnipresence, with sounds that swirl in your ears and hearts, and Norm Mamakas and his acoustic Spanish style guitar. Starts 7pm.

Joel Sarakula talks about City Heart, his MGM release of lost loves and bittersweet travels to the ends of the world. When it comes to constructing a pop song, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all in the hook. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if I know the secret to constructing a pop song and I am not sure if any secrets I have are valid because I am still waiting for that platinum record or contract from Mushroom! What I like to do is to remain true to the hook â&#x20AC;&#x201C; whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a melody or a riff or a shout, so many great pop songs you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sing them they are just sweet bits of tasty noise and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hook and it comes back three or four timesâ&#x20AC;Ś â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I think maybe Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve honed my brain to be hook based. I used to love more elaborate music, like Rufus Wainwright â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but now I do shorter sharper things, my true influence of what got to me is stuff like The Beatles, Nirvana, The Beach Boys and Bowieâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; His latest album is pop with an edge. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think my City Heart is background music. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not for cafes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too brutal and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poppy.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Sarakula likes unconventional subject matter. Unconventional, that is, to the pop genre.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I try to address more unlikely stuff, some with a conscious effort â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too easy to fall in the age old love traps, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always about that kind of song Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll try and frame it in a different way, its called City Heart because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about the City lifeâ&#x20AC;Ś â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I wanted to touch on the humanity of a city â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it can be an odd physical thing to be surrounded by heaps of people â&#x20AC;Ś in Sunday Bells â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the quirkiest â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like

INTERVIEW – BERTIE BLACKMAN

Being Bertie Blackman Bertie Blackman is the granddaughter of esteemed Austtralian artist Charles Blackman. Driven, individual, kooky, it seems talent has its own wellspring in the Blackman family. Bertie is relentless. She reckons there’s not going to be a day off until October. It’s heads down bums up. ‘I am no-life-Bertie at the moment. I’ve been in full production rehearsal for the last five days – all day and into the night, and I have a film that is being premiered tomorrow night – these are just production rehearsals for the tour. It’s a heavy stage setup, not just a band lineup anymore and we are all triggering things live via computers. And if something goes wrong, we have a backup computer and all scenarios are covered and if the worse comes to worse I can do it on my own!’ Bertie’s latest album is called Secrets and Lies and is produced by Lee Groves, a UK producer who is now based in Sydney. It was music made in heaven for Ms Blackman. ‘He has worked or produced stuff with Goldfrapp, Gwen Steffani and Depeche Mode

amongst other things, so it was my first time working with a producer who isn’t Australian. He had his way of working and doing production was very different and it was an adjustment, the last record was rock ‘n’ roll, this was a real production on each song. Rather than going in and recording a whole record, I worked with him song by song until each song was done. Actually it was a lovely way to work, quite a nurturing really – the songs get their own feeling and they’re not recorded with another song splashing into them. I also wrote while I was recording, I always do, it usually takes me a while to warm into it, I’ll hear songs that I haven’t heard, my manager has to tell me to stop. It’s a very prolific time for me.’ Bertie plays the Beach Hotel on Thursday.

DR SKETCHY LIFE DRAWING BUDDHA BAR TUESDAY

Arts Factory Showcase With Byron Bay becoming more homogenised with franchise after franchise opening their doors, it’s hard to imagine just what this place was like before they came. Where are the original and authentic Byron experiences? The Arts Factory remains true to form, a gorgeous kooky amazing place. You can find out just what the Arts Factory has to offer with a 12 noon to 12 midnight showcase on Saturday. There are guided tours at 12, 1 and 3pm. Bushtucker walks with our resident bushtucker man – Cockatoo Paul. Throughout the day there are workshops for drumming, reiki, yoga and of course fire twirling. The afternoon features a Talent Show at the Buddha Bar from 5.30pm. Cockatoo Paul live at 7.30 pm and Soul’d live from 8.30pm. There are prize draws every half hour from 6 to 9pm – win movie passes, meal deals, day spa treatments and accommodation. And then there is the grande finale – the Guiness Book of Records world record attempt at Fire Twirling at 9pm in the carpark between the Buddha Bar and the hostel. People can contact us to register if they would like to participate.

Film That Burning Sensation The Burning Season is now playing at the Dendy in Byron Bay. Created by locally based director Cathy Henkel, this film is a must see. It follows the story of a young entrepreneur as he travels the globe in pursuit of a carbon trading deal that could protect millions of hectares of pristine rainforest and save the orangutan from extinction. The film had its international premiere at The Tribeca Film Festival in New York this year and was the only Australian documentary to be selected to compete in the World Documentary Feature Competition at the Festival. For director Henkel, this film is ‘a matter of urgency. My hope is that it will help people understand why forests need to be saved.’

STARS WITH LILITH

ARIES: A perfect week for developing new ways to make your mind your friend and ally instead of working against you. Start by asking it what in your life needs either redesigning or leaving behind – attitudes, aspirations or associates. Then request the most user-friendly methods of achieving that. TAURUS: If Jupiter retrograde in your career zone doesn’t produce any solid results this week, just keep on trucking with your usual determination till the right resources and opportunities arrive. Clear a space for them by getting rid of the very many things you no longer need. GEMINI: Don’t act on assumptions this week, especially the one that you know what’s going on. There’s a lot of changing and rearranging happening behind the cosmic curtain, so check with others for their latest updates rather than second guessing where they’re at.

A hoodoo lasting more than half a century has been broken this week, following David Smerdon’s victory in the Australasian Match of the Decade. The first match between Australia and New Zealand’s top players was held in Auckland in 1952, with the two living legends Cecil Purdy and Ortvin Sarapu tying 5-5 before NZ’s Sarapu prevailed in a blitz playoff. The rivalry was renewed in 1986 when each country’s sole Grandmaster, Murray Chandler and myself, met in a match divided between Wellington and Auckland. Again New Zealand triumphed, Chandler winning by a comfortable 3-1 margin. Last week, a new contest in Auckland finally saw Australia in the ascendancy, with Australia’s newest Grandmaster David Smerdon defeating New Zealand’s rising star Puchen Wang 4-2. In a contest which drew plenty of spectators, both at Auckland Grammar School and online, Smerdon, 24, showed the form which has taken him to five tournament titles already in 2009,

No significant movements in the heavens this week, which makes a welcome cosmic pause for Venus in stay-at-home Cancer and Mercury in analytical Virgo to integrate the recent personal and world changes CANCER: All energy collects the same kind back, like a copy machine printing out and returning whatever you present it with. Rather than focusing on problems or lack it’s more rewarding this week to thank the universe for what you’ve already got, thereby attracting more of it. LEO: This fabulous week showers you with bounty. Others adore your enterprising spirit, general knowledge and undeniable sass, but don’t get so caught up in royal performances that you power steer right over people who could be valuable links in your chain of support. VIRGO: Over love struggles, budget adjustments and complaining friends? Tired of being reasonable and responsible? That makes it time to do something fun and indulgent that makes you feel good about yourself, after which some concerns will drop away and you’ll approach the rest with a refreshed attitude.

LIBRA: A week when Libran flair and artistry gets the personal and professional recognition it deserves. While there’s no shortage of vibrant socializing, your leading lady Venus in the sign of the pleaser is likely to have her happiest and most significant moments at home. SCORPIO: This week has a lot going for it, including considerable appreciation for your efforts that you weren’t aware of. So exercise your natural talent for skillful negotiating, tread gently, speak from the heart and others will willingly give more than you ask for. SAGITTARIUS: You’re definitely this week’s ray of sunshine and it’s looking like time to wave the wand of manifestation, vacuum that magic carpet and get ready to ride… Biggest ask right now is staying focused and not scattering your energy in a dozen different directions.

Mungo’s Crossword

CAPRICORN: Trust and acceptance are this week’s biggies: trusting yourself and accepting others. Having been a steady rock in recent turbulent times ensures you plenty of backup, so investigate the pleasures of delegation – it’s so much more fun than doing everything yourself. AQUARIUS: This week earths you to the point you could actually get around to making calls, answering emails and attending to all those practical catchups you’ve been procrastinating about... Amazing! All it asks in return is that you stay objective, flexible and negotiable.

Television Guide 1. Apart from Andie McDowell, seen here snogging Hugh Grant, the casting is impeccable in Four Weddings And A Funeral (Prime, Friday, 8.30pm), a 1994 romantic comedy written by Richard Curtis of Vicar Of Dibley fame, and worth watching for the reading of W H Audenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Funeral Bluesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; alone. 2. Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn are gorgeous as usual in Charade (ABC2, Saturday, 8.30pm), one of the best comedy thrillers of the 1960s. 3. Cameron Diaz trials an unusual hair gel in Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Something About Mary (TEN, Sunday, 9.50pm), a screwball comedy which is definitely not for the easily offended.

'The use of travelling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.' - Samuel Johnson Travelling overseas can give an expanded perspective on the small world we call home, often confined to the workplace and the backyard. We come face to face to face with new cultures, learn new languages and marvel at new things. But you don't even need to go so far to get a refreshing point of view in the Northern Rivers. How long has it been since you trekked to the waterfall up the road or sat on a beach at sunset, letting the waves wash over worries? In Footloose we look at four regions ready to explore: the Far North Coast Hinterland, the Gold Coast, the Gold Coast Hinterland, and the Far North Coast. And if you want to go further afield, we also venture into the Sunshine Coast and its hinterland.

The variety of experiences available in these regions is immense, easily able to satisfy many varying definitions of what is a pleasant holiday. Your idea of a good time may be to sit in a cool café sipping coffee and reading a paper; for others it's the adrenalin rush in a speedboat's wake. In the North Coast Hinterland, for example, you might take time to tour among the little villages, admiring galleries or market stalls. Behind the Gold Coast there are all kinds of camping to be had among rainforest, and once you've had your fill of nature, it's hard to go past the unique wineries. The Gold Coast itself, however, can be synonymous with partying and luxury hotels, if you can tear yourself away from the golden stretches of sand.

Before you set out, plan your itinerary. Make sure you can get to where you want to go comfortably in the time you have without exhausting yourself in the process. It is a holiday, remember? Discuss your trip among friends or family, commit ideas to paper and discover which are realisable dreams and which are better left for other times. We can help you with that. In the following pages we provide you with ideas on where to go and what to do which are sure to help make a holiday special. The feeling of wellbeing will be increased with the knowledge that you're also supporting local industry and enjoying the beauty of our muchacclaimed natural environment.

Far North Coast BYRON N BAY, BRO OKEN HEAD D, EWING GSDALE, NEWRYBAR R

There are points on the Far North Coast of New South Wales where you are up so dizzyingly high that, by rotating slowly, you are able to let your eyes travel from Mt Warning to the ocean. This is just one of the reasons for the immense and enduring popularity enjoyed by the region. Stretching from Grafton to the border between New South Wales and Queensland, this most northerly expanse of coast has long been a magnet for surfboard riders attracted by perfect breaks like Angourie, The Pass and Lennox Head. Its diversity ensures that it entices backpackers, holidaying families and sea-changers.

access most people don’t bother but if you do you may have the entire cove to yourself. The Pacific Hotel at Yamba commands one of the most dramatic locations for dining on the whole North Coast, a white-washed building which seems to tip out over the ocean below. Nearby, Angourie is sought out by serious surfers and the Yuraygir National Park which bounds it has wild and wonderful tracks for bushwalking.

Its towns are scattered in between national parks, deserted beaches, rainforests and lush cattle-grazing fields. Considered by some to be among the best in the world, the beautiful beaches often back on to reserves, and the sub-tropical climate means you can even swim in mid-winter. There’s fishing and whale-watching, hang-gliding and scuba diving; there are scenic coastal roads and village markets. And while each small town possesses its own distinctive character, it is undeniably Byron Bay which is considered ‘the jewel in the crown’.

Catch a ferry to Iluka over the other side of the river-mouth north of Yamba and explore the world heritage-listed nature reserve which contains the largest coastal rainforest in New South Wales. At Ballina you can breakfast at The Point restaurant with the glassy Richmond River a croissant’s throw away.

Most of the original hippy settlers from the 60s and 70s have moved inland now, but there is still an ‘alternative’ element – Nag Champa swirling out of doorways, dreadlocks offered on street corners – and apparently one of the highest contingents of yoga practitioners in the world. Chic boutiques, masses of cafes and restaurants, at least four gyms and a Dendy cinema gloss the town with sophistication – though none of these things compares with the exhilarating climb up to the lighthouse. Unless it’s the live music scene. Besides, there are best-kept secrets like Yamba; timeless, unfashionable and sleepy places like Brunswick Heads, Hastings Point and Evans Head; beaches at Broken Head so difficult to

Dolphins may leap. Set on the mouth of the river this port town is ideal for family holidays, and ten minutes south of Lennox Head, whose spectacular coastline seduces professional surfers from all over the world. Ever northward, it is best to turn off the highway at Wooyung, beyond South Golden Beach, and take the coast road which winds picturesquely all the way up to Fingal Head, close to the border. Kingscliff ’s surf club has a verandah overlooking the ocean and an excellent restaurant; its main street is cluttered with stylish boutiques and good cafes.

Deirdre went out of her way to make us comfortable, a bottle of bubbles when we arrived, she organized a cot for my son and provided lots of great local knowledge. The views from the balcony were stunning and the accommodation was a very high standard. We can’t wait for our next trip.” Jennifer, February 2009

Far North Coast Hinterland FEDEERAL, GOON NENG GERRY, DUNOON, THEE CH HANNO ON, MU ULLUM MBIMB BY

Away from the coast, another world opens up. The undulating landscape of the hinterland throws up ever-changing vistas: orchards and forests, farmlands and national parks; perhaps that partly explains why artists are drawn here. Pick a road, any road, and you will wind up somewhere totally enchanting, a perfect picnic spot or a hidden waterfall at the end of a brambly walking track. The lush and fertile volcanic soil hydrated by regular rainfalls offers up coffee, macadamia nuts, avocados, pecans and bananas and the various farmers’ markets are there to showcase them.

Mount Warning itself – the last remnant of the extinct volcano’s central core – is worth a climb, although you should start early in the morning. At 1,156 metres its peak is the first part of mainland Australia to be touched by the morning sun. The round- trip trek takes about five hours and is utterly intoxicating. Heading southward, the dramatic mountainscape and towering, majestic rocks rear up wherever you look.

Soaring up above the plains is Mount Warning (Wollumbin) from whence the rich soil has over the centuries spread. It is also responsible for the most spectacular National Parks, World Heritage-listed reserves, state forests and mountain The town of Nimbin is a blast from lookouts whose panoramic views stretch the Aquarius past with its fascinating museum and its Hemp Embassy.

Cedarville is 10 minutes to Rocky Creek Dam, Minyon Falls and the rainforests of the far north coast of New South Wales, a bird watching and bushwalkers paradise. Also just 30 minutes to the magic of Byron Bay, where you can spend the day soaking up the atmosphere, or visit our areas unique markets for great local produce and gifts while being entertained by the varied performers.

Gold Coast and Hinterland SPRINGBROOK, CURRUMBIN VALLEY, MTT TAM MBO OUR RINEE, NTTH TAM MBOU URIN NE, BALLLAN NDEA AN

When the notion of a getaway involves not only relaxation but an element of cosmopolitanism, glitz and downright fun then the Gold Coast is your destination. From Coolangnatta in the south up to South Stradbroke Island in the north, it unscrolls into 70km of beaches and a surreal landscape of highrise architecture which rears up from them. The earliest surveyed town was Southport near the top of the stretch, settled in 1869 and known at the time as Nerang Creek Heads. It was renamed Southport in 1875 after the English seaside resort town and by 1890 had become the place for the social set, largely because of its stunning views and perfect weather. Accordingly, the Council encouraged it to flourish with the development of swimming baths and a theatre, kiosks and side-show amusements. The real tourism boom began in 1925 when firstly a coastal road was built between Brisbane and Southport and then Jim Cavill built the Surfers Paradise Hotel slightly south, in an area known as Elston which was later to become Surfers Paradise. With the increasing reliability of automobile technology in the 1930’s the number of holidaymakers continued to grow and by the end of the 1940’s the entire area had turned into a vastly popular holiday destination. In fact, when you are there, it is difficult to know who are the locals and who are the tourists; there is this feeling that everyone is, like you, there on holiday, shopping in the boutiques and swimming at the beautiful beaches and dining in the restaurants. None of that dense high-rise development can take away from the sheer gorgeousness of those beaches – 21 of which are patrolled. At Southport the permanent sand-spit separates the Broadwater from the Pacific Ocean; there is also the astonishing Versace Hotel and Sea World. (Worlds are a particular feature of the Gold Coast.) Main Beach begins one of the area’s most popular walks and its bathing pavillion is historic. Tedder Avenue several streets back is wall-to-wall smart restaurants, cafes and boutiques. Surfers Paradise should be avoided during Schoolies Week but otherwise promises, then delivers, a seamless flow of pleasures – from the minute you

leave your tall fancy hotel, cross the road to the sparkling beach for a swim, spend the afternoon shopping after a light little lunch, browse in a gallery or two, repair to your hotel for sauna and spa then head out into the evening for cocktails, dinner, and even dancing if the adrenalin is still with you. The parkland at Broadbeach continues the beachside walk you will need to do to compensate for your golden excesses and the fact that here too proliferate the eateries and drinkeries. By Mermaid Beach and Palm Beach there’s a subtle shift to the air, a sleepier air and a more ‘locals’ feel. There’s Burleigh, Miami, Nobby Beach, Currumbin, Kirra and Coolangatta and there you are, back at the border. Sunset drinks on the Observation Deck of the Q1, seventy seven floors up one of the tallest residential buildings in the world, could be a quintessentially Gold Coast experience, especially at full moon when you can gaze out through the glass which separates you and look it in its lunar eye.

cellar. It is an industry ever-increasing in popularity and significance for the region, so much so that there is even a wine trail throughout the hinterland with vineyard tours you can join in order to follow it. Further down is Lamington National Park, 200 square kilometres of majestic ranges, subtropical rainforest, gorges and caves, waterfalls and pools. And more of those dramatic views which take your breath away. Springbrook National Park contains the Natural Arch where it is possible, if you feel brave, to swim in the invigorating waters beneath the waterfall. There are glow-worms at nightfall.

in spring. There are apple orchards and lavender farms, and there are more award-winning wineries; the area is, to be sure, considered Queensland’s premier wine region. And if all that bush-walking and mountain-climbing hasn’t succeeded in restoring, reviving and rejuvenating you then maybe a glass of cabernet sauvignon from the Bungawarra Wines cellar door will do the trick.

To sustain you, as you feel your busy life melt away, are cafes and restaurants dotted throughout this lush region. The hinterland communities were founded on farming and gourmet food producers abound: you will find avocados and grapes and rhubarb, chocolate and fudge and cheese, coffee and nuts. Roadside stalls and historic pubs vie with French, Italian, Mexican, Spanish, Indian and Thai restaurants, often located at lookouts with more of those astonishing views. Two main towns include Mudgeeraba – which boasts a fresh food market – and Nerang. The former is set at the base of the Tallai Hills and hosts, every first Saturday of the month, a popular village fair with When it all gets too much it might just stalls and entertainment. be time to head upward and inland. o begins to Find some mountains where the clean Which sharp air will clear your mind, distill your sound busy again! e When it might be thoughts and soothe your soul.

Past Brisbane and up the Bruce Highway is the turn-off to this fertile region. The Glasshouse Mountains soar steep-sidedly into the clouds, endlessly visible; the motorway curves around and takes you from Caloundra through to Noosa Heads past white-sanded beaches ever more beautiful. Here there are more national parks than in any other region of Queensland. Boutique dining and designer shopping, art galleries and stylish bars attract sophisticated travellers and international tourists. Inland, the Blackall Range offers up villages with a nostalgic rural charm such as Montville and Maleny which feature wineries and cheese factories, weekly markets, arts and crafts and a generous array of accommodation in the form of B&B’s, retreats, boutique guest houses and cottages. Stunning scenery, rainforests and waterfalls are all there to be Ginger explored. There’s the Ging nger er Factory Facto tory ry at Yandina whose

glorious grounds are profuse with exotic flowering ginger varieties; the Spirit House nearby for dinner, Asianstyle, in tropical gardens around a tranquil pond where the only sounds are bubbling waterfalls and wind-chimes. Beneath heritage-listed fig trees the Eumundi Markets, held every Wednesday and Saturday, is considered one of Australia’s leading tourist attractions and boasts more than 600 stalls.

Mount Cooroora at Poimona is 439 metres of steep teep ep and exhilarating forest track; take a picnic for the summit and allow yourself two hours.

An easier, equally beautiful walk is through the Noosa National Park via Alexandria Bay. Tea Tree Beach is a postcard; koalas peep from trees. The Noosa Farmers Market is a must for Sunday lunch supplies; there are golf courses, deer parks, honey factories and botanical gardens. And there is sunshine, of course.

Share the magic Set amid 400 acres of forest and native grassland, this exclusive hideaway estate only 8km from Mapleton, offers a unique blend of seclusion and silence. Here you can discover the Sunshine Coast Hinterland in all its natural beauty. Accommodation is available in three self-contained forest cottages, each nestled in its own landscaped garden, with expansive views. Or you might like to stay in the fully restored Lighthouse Lodge, which has four bedrooms, all with en-suite bathroom, three with claw baths. Sitting room, and private balconies with superb views. The Lodge has a fully equipped kitchen. Tennis, mountain bikes, and boule are available for guests. Specially marked walks though-out the estate are there for you to explore. Enjoy breakfast on your private balcony as part of your package, and allow us to give you what you desire most. Peace and relaxation, the simple pleasure of having time on your hands. Talk to us about your wedding plans. Our open-air Pavilion, surround by manicured lawn and gardens, is available for receptions.

Coraline You will often hear people say that they are not fans of westerns/ horror movies/musicals etc, but that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;this one is really goodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Such is the case with Coraline, for those whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d normally walk a mile rather than watch a feature length cartoon have come out of the woodwork to praise it. As somebody who was won over to the genre by the appearance of Shrek (2001), I beg to differ and would argue that it cannot hold a candle to the likes of the green ogreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first incarnation, The Incredibles (2004), Ratatouille (2007), or even last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wonderfully soppy Bolt. This partly comes down to a preference in aesthetics. Like the recently lauded but for mine terminally dreary Mary and Max,

Coraline is shot in stop-motion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; i.e., with three-dimensional figures built of clay, instead of drawn ones. It is a painstaking process that undoubtedly demands awesome powers of concentration and patience, but I reckon the technique, even when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as expertly done as it obviously is here, simply does not have the fluency of movement or, more significantly, because of its comparative lack of facial mobility, the ability to create genuinely believable characters in the way that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;trueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; animation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; either by hand or computer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; can. Disregarding that matter of taste, Coraline did not work for me because, unlike those childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s films that have a lot in them for adults to appreciate, it comes across more as being primarily aimed at a mature-age audience and in many ways is unsuitable for little kids. The opening sequence, a close-up of the dismembering of a rag doll, is as disturbing as anything I have seen for some time, but, putting aside the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creepiness, it is over-produced and, as a result, ponderously slow. Somebody should have cried â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;enoughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and taken the razor to at least twenty minutes of clever but

The Ugly Truth Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s embarrassing to admit to having laughed out loud â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in the earlier parts, anyway â&#x20AC;&#x201C; of what is a movie aimed with clinical cynicism at the lowest brow. Abby (Katherine Heigl) is a producer at one of those gibbering morning magazine shows on Sacramento TV. The newest presenter to join the team is Mike (Gerrard Butler), who makes a big splash with his Neanderthal pronouncements on gender relationships, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t love your personalities, we love your titsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; being one of his less provocative bons mots. Abby gets her back up but as sure as God made little apples you know that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re gonna end up together. But not before Abby, going against her better instincts, follows Mikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s instructions on how to win over handsome, urbane Colin, in front of whose townhouse she has managed to dangle herself upside down in a tree whilst chasing her cat one night. She is wearing lovely white undies and the towel covering Colinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dick drops to the ground as he is helping her â&#x20AC;&#x201C; some of the set pieces make Fat Pizza look like a Noel Coward farce. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anotherâ&#x20AC;Ś Abby, after telling Mike that she does not masturbate (yes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all back of FULLY AIR-CONDITIONED EVERY WED ALL SEATS ALL SESSIONS $8 ONLY

HARRY POTTER FINAL DAYS

This is a surprisingly moving subtle black comedy. Its two central characters, Rose Lorkowski and her sister, Norah, get into the messy business of cleaning up after crime scenes. Exceptional performances from Amy Adams and Emily Blunt elevate this poignant and quirky tale into an engrossing experience and one that allows a refreshing optimism to permeate the storyline, together with a cast who are adept at snatching laughs from the jaws of disaster. Amy Adams, somehow has the ability to convey wisdom and guilelessness in the same closeup. Her air of curiosity lifts everything around her. And in this film, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paired with somebody who really

needs lifting. Emily Blunt is an artist in pessimism. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at her most watchable when sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about to crack. Her character Norah has already cracked many times. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now at the stage that she can hardly drag herself out of bed in the morning. There are some nice twists to the story and director Christine Jeffs keeps the mood just right, allowing our focus to be on the emotional wellbeing of the two girls who have an unexpected connection to the crime scenes they visit. The contradiction of terms and emotions is what makes this such an affecting film and one that ultimately lifts our spirits. ~ Lounge Cinema

the bus dialogue), receives from him in the mail a pair of remote control, vibrating knickers. (Are there really such things? I guess I should get out more.) Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d bet the sheep station, wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you, that those knickers will go nuclear at a most inopportune moment in front of a bemused gathering. Brawny Butler is a peculiar choice as leading man in a romantic comedy. More Seth Rogan without the exposed bumcrack than Hugh Grant, his character suffers under Aussie director Robert Luketicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crass attempt at bludgeoning out a blokeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s niche in a chick dominated market. Heigl, on the other hand, is a natural, but she is not as good here as she was in Knocked Up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; did she find Abby just too ridiculous? It beggars belief (or does it?) that in 2009, the Girl in this type of flick should be presented, despite her achievements, as a bimbo in remission who cannot possibly be fulfilled without a man in her life. Strange that a team of female writers would have their heroine jumping around in a squealy tizz because sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s landed a date with a potential Mister Right. Can you imagine Katherine Hepburn putting up with such tosh? The filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only irony will emerge in its inevitable box office bonanza â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the ugly truth. ~ John Campbell

unessential indulgence â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the fat ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; circus act, performed before an audience of black Scottish terriers, is brilliantly executed but contributes nothing to the story. Which is about an eleven year-old girl who, neglected by her control freak mother and work obsessed father, stumbles into a parallel universe where they have become the perfect parents â&#x20AC;&#x201C; only with buttons instead of eyes. Things are fine at first, but they soon turn freaky and, like Dorothy yearning for Kansas and Toto, Coraline belatedly learns the cheesy lesson about home sweet home. Unfortunately, by about halfway, I realised that I was daydreaming and had lost the plot and worse, was not over concerned with regathering it. ~ John Campbell

I could almost eat Brisbane I am enjoying it so much. Increasingly, and in small bites â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a weekend here, an overnighter there â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I am finding more and more to delight me in this large country town that should probably be considered a city. Over the years some of my more exciting food experiences are happening here. Gnocchi with lobster chunks at â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Il Centroâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at Eagle Street Pier with David Suzuki â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a man clearly of impeccable tastes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; several tables away and the night air so warm we sat out by the water. Fat meaty mushrooms on toasted wedges of sourdough at Eâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;cco one sunshiny lunchtime. A creamy plank of gorgonzola sitting on benches in the open air on a starry evening in The Valley â&#x20AC;&#x201C; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not supposed to add the Fortitude part â&#x20AC;&#x201C; after spicy sardines. Everything: entree, main and dessert, that we ate, slowly to savour it all, at the Lab Bar in the extraordinary heritage Lands and Administration Building which is now the Treasury Hotel.

When we were there recently the entire facade of its sister building, the Treasury Casino, was illuminated pink out of the taxi window as we headed over the bridge to dinner: it glowed like incandescent coral, a bewitchment. I would like to say that one of the reasons I love Brisbane is because it is small â&#x20AC;&#x201C; unlike Sydney, or London â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and therefore comprehensible; it is indeed small and yet I still get lost. I still grapple, after many visits, with its geography and its layout and its logic, if it possesses one. This very fact merely adds to the deliciousness because every time I go I am surprised by something new. Sometimes we will catch the Cats across the river â&#x20AC;&#x201C; hair whipped back by the wind and the vista of homes with perpendicular gardens leading steeply down to private jetties keeping my mouth in a permanent O of desire â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and my sense of disorientation continues its ascent. We step out, neatly, into another small discovery. The extra eating necessarily involved in trips to Brisbane

is effortlessly atoned for by the walking, often climbing up layers of streets until the terrace where our hotel stands is reached. Or the several hours around galleries both modern and regular. These galleries are mouthfuls of pleasure in themselves with their ever-changing, distinctive exhibitions. And the forecourt cafe so thoughtfully there in between for friand and coffee. Pavements are pounded without the exercise being noticed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there, suddenly, is Queen Street Mall with its buskers and school bands somehow managing euphony from their separate temporary open-air concert halls. David Jones for perfume-counters and escalators sliding you smoothly from floor to floor of temptation. Even the fact I feel so scruffy, somehow, alongside the throngs of busy legs in spiky stilettos, black-suited men and glamorous women like magazine cut-outs, does not spoil the feast. I might even end up at somewhere like Jimmyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s On The Mall along with all the other visitors to this town who either do not

care or, as in my case, have not yet learned where to find, mid-city, the best place for breakfast. For once I allow my snobbish standards to lapse; I have ordered a generic muffin in a paper case and a mug of indifferent coffee which arrives in a glass, made by a gloomy man in a tie. Behind me â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and it is not even 10am â&#x20AC;&#x201C; three men are drinking schooners, eyes fixed on the sports video on the flat screen near the espresso machine. None of it matters. Our mystery wotif hotel is the very swish Marriot where afternoon tea materialises on a tiered stand accompanied by a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;complimentary glass of bubbles upon arrivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. We have tickets to see the Michael Nyman Band at the QPAC and we are meeting friends at a Turkish restaurant with a belly dancer beforehand. Next time we go â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and it will be soon, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so close! â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I plan to explore New Farm: bookshop, delicatessen, cafe, boutiques, restaurant. A bite at a time I will work my way through this delectable capital.

DATES FOR THE DIARY Some rather appetising dates for the diary include an Italian night at the Beach Hotelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pacific Dining Room and a Duck and Pinot Food Trail in Ballina. The latter takes place on Friday August 14 so if you want to go you should book immediately. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 6-course All Duck Degustation event developed by local chefs Nicolas Gomez-Duran (of Ballinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sandbar) and Thierry Belloir (of The Point) and will be reminiscent of their European heritage, matched with an array of both old and new world pinot noirs. A bus will convey guests between the two restaurants involved, departing at 12 midday from The Point. Tickets cost $95 per head and bookings can be made at both The Sandbar (6686 6602) or The Point (6618 1188). It is hoped that this becomes an annual event and is designed to demonstrate how restaurants can

be proactive when they work together. Following on from the successful Italian night held in June, the Pacific Dining Room will again host a superb 4-course Italian dinner on Thursday August 20. A complimentary glass of sparkling wine will be offered on arrival, the cost is $55 a head and bookings are essential on 6680 7055. Photo: Duck chefs Thierry Belloir and Nicolas Gomez-Duran

Jun’s a great Byron Magpies junior Byron Bay Public School student Jun Touzel has always loved Aussie Rules football and he has been playing for the Magpies for seven of his 11 years. Jun reached a massive milestone on the weekend when he played his 100th game for the Mighty Pies. ‘I love to run with the ball and I enjoy breaking tackles,’ says Jun, who just loves the game and is a very physical player. You would think that a little Magpie would barrack for Collingwood, but Jun is a Hawthorn man through and through. Jun plays center for the Magpies and feels a strong sense of achievement in reaching the tonne and his mates are happy for him as well, as he is a real team player who has the ability to include his team mates and share the ball around, a very unselfish player and a great captain for the team. Jun was treated to a banner all about him on Saturday’s

match before heading into a great game with the under 12s. The first quarter was a slow start which saw Lismore up by two goals. In the second quarter, Byron lifted its work rate and kicked three goals to be up by one goal at half time. The last half the boys lifted their intensity yet again and

worked well as a team to beat the Lismore Swans by two goals at the final siren. Jun delivered a real captain’s role playing out of midfield and positioning himself well around the ground, taking some strong overhead marks. Jun put his head over the footy and threw himself in head first to win the hard ball play-

ing with courage, breaking the line several times to make his way through opposition traffic to deliver the ball to the forward line with pin point accuracy, helping to steer his team to victory. This was only one of the many individual efforts that made the game a winner and Byron Bay Magpies under 12s one of the strongest in the league. Other games on the day at Bangalow’s Shultz Oval were just as exciting as arch rivals Byron Bay Magpies and the Lismore Swans met for a Junior AFL clash. The crisp sunny day began with a well played match by the under 10s, who play serious footy without scores, and went on to see the Magpie U12s great win 8.14.62 to 7.4.46 over the Swans. The quality football continued with U12 B team playing equally well, but the always impressive Ballina Bombers proved too much, and the visitors walked away with a hard-won 9.10.64–6.3.39 vic-

Crankin’ tory. Still smarting from their last defeat at the hands of the Swans, the Magpies Under 14s took to the field with even more than their usual gusto, and from the first bounce on the pace never slacked. Despite losing their first two goals due to an overlooked man on the field, they fought back ferociously and displayed a new level of dynamics, with dazzling handballing, assists and goal kicking. Throughout all four terms it remained anyone’s game, but the Magpies were relentless and by the fourth quarter were noticeably wearing down the opposition, (and their many fan’ cheering voices). It was a hard-won victory, but the ‘Pies reclaimed their dominance with a heady 9.10.64– 6.3.39 win and joined together for the loudest victory songs of the season. This has been one of the most exciting Junior AFL seasons in a long time, and promises to get even more exciting in the lead up to the grand finals.

fantastic game and were only just defeated. Tries from Dylan Akers and Ky O’Donnell, Great games by Kaine Guyler and Aaron Cramer. Well done to all the boys! Ocean Shores Bakery U11 lost to South Tweed on Saturday. Man of Match Kyle Anderson and Jacob Toovey had a great game and showed much enthusiasm. The boys played men short again this weekend but showed their true Giant colours by putting in a valiant effort, unfortunately they were beaten in the dying minutes. New Brighton Store U16 won against Colts 20-6. The boys played a hard game of football, very determined effort for the boys as the semis are close. Best team effort of the year. Tyanne, JT and Matt great games from the boys. Keep the team spirit going and the results will happen. All international teams from U13 to U16’s won all their games. Go Giants!

Gene’s on his way to Barcelona Happy hooker blows Papists Gene Healey has long been one of the most outstanding junior tennis players in this region and at only 14 years of age, he now has a chance to really test and enhance his skills on an international level. Thie week Gene will take time off from his studies in year 9 at Mullum High to train in Barcelona, Spain, for a month to hone his clay court game. Gene has been supported by Tennis Australia with a wildcard endorsement to play in the prestigious Academia Sanchez-Casal International Tournament in the 14 age group division. Gene will be training under Sergi Bruguera who was winner of Roland Garros in 1993 and 1994 and one of Spain’s greatest ever clay court players. Gene is ecstatic about the prospect of a great opportunity. ‘This is what any tennis player dreams of,’ says Gene. ‘I’m just psyched! I’ll do and give all I can. I just hope I play as well as I can on the day.’ Gene has had a great lead up to the event in the Rod Laver Under 14 event where he won the consolation round and clambered up the doubles ladder, only to be knocked out in the semis. When Gene returns from his overseas jaunt it will be straight back into the swing of the Australian. He competition when will attend the North Coast Academy of Sport Training weekend before he travels to Bundaberg for a quick clay warm-up in the Open Age event then on to Perth as one of the country’s best 52 play-

ers invited to compete in the Optus 14s Spring Nationals in late September. Gene hopes to achieve well enough this year to be invited to the Australian National Teams Training camp in Melbourne in November as a warm-up for the Australian 14s championships in Melbourne in December. Gene is really grateful to the support from the Mullumbimby Tennis Club and his local trainers and mentors Steve Gort and Alistair Kinghorn. Gene’s ambition is to do as well as he can this year before

really deciding if he wants to go forward with a career in the sport. ‘I need to ask myself if I really want to commit to the next ten years, I mean give us a break – I’m a kid. ‘The early mornings, the hours every day of training, then it’s just you out there. No team mates, it’s not soccer or footy. No one can even yell out what to do. At the moment it’s fun. Sometimes it shits me, sometimes i’m obsessed. I’m pushing myself to see how far I can go. Next year who knows I might end up being a striker again.’

It had been a game memorable only for the biting cold in which it was being contested. But Mullumbimby’s rake, Robbie Wark, managed to squeeze three tries – punctuated by one from winger Corey Poole – into the last twelve minutes of the clash against Marist Brothers to add some much needed gloss to the Giants’ sponsors’ day. The late welter of activity also blew the score out to a flattering 38-4 in favour of the hosts, who are now sitting pretty to finish in the NRRRL’s top three, with just two rounds of the comp left to play. Andrew Moroney stormed in for his customary opening try in the second minute and the Brothers desultory trudge back to halfway hinted at a slaughter pending. ‘This could be a hundred!’ yelled one of the more cocky gold-and-blue beer swillers, but thereafter the Giants did their utmost to perform at the level of their mediocre opponents. If anything, the other mob, led by a feisty and extremely effective half-back, were unlucky to not be ahead at the break, when the scores were locked at 4-all. Astonishingly, the visitors stayed on the field for the interval, their coach perhaps fearful that the boys might not want to return from the warmth of the sheds when the hooter beckoned. Whatever his logic, it proved to be as smart as Custer’s decision to chase those Indians over that hill. The Papists lost the ball from

Best for Byron on the day was Dave ‘Chillie’ Stevens – who tried to make up for the missing players on his own – and Alastair Oakman who had a great game his first time in the centre, he still had stitches in his head from last week. Special mention must go to Allan Waugh who came out of retirement to play hooker for half a game before going off with maybe a career ending eye injury. Byron thanks you Adam––––– for putting in a big one for the boys. Byron will play their last game for the season next weekend against Kyogle at 2pm at home. This will be a special game for Warren Fisher who has done it all for Byron and will play his 100th game. It would be great to reward him with a good home crowd, to say thanks for guiding Byron to many memorable victories in the past. There will be drinks to celebrate Warren’s achievements back at the Rails after the match, all welcome.

Byron v Iluka Byron Rugby travelled to Iluka Saturday feeling the strain of the season’s injuries. With 8 people injured or unavailable we arrived with 12 players and three of those were carrying injuries. Within five minutes of the match start, Paul Mitchell had his nose rearranged which some say was for the better. Iluka scored a few soft tries with three men missing from the defence line before Mitch Loane, scored from a well called lineout by the coach and injured lock Warren Fishe. The play went out the back line and Mitch scored in the corner, 12 out flanked 15. The game went as expected with Iluka running away with the score but not before Mitch scored again under the posts.

if management wants to draw a crowd comprised of more than just friends and family, rusted-on tragics and gouty explayers, they might do well to consider the comfort of their patrons when sitting down to determine next season’s scheduling. Given that the code is under unprecedented pressure in the marketplace from soccer, the southern heresy and even the rah rahs, a more consumer friendly brains trust would auger well for the club’s future. In reserve grade, after last week being eclipsed for the first time this year by the Red Devils, the Giants got back into the winner’s circle with a thumping 50-6 victory.

the kick-off, evergreen Glen Godbee notched a four-pointer and, at the resumption, Brothers booted the ball into touch on the full. Sunny Jay Hampson cleaned up a wayward pass to scramble over soon after, then Marist’s toey number seven planted a right cross on the side of Mullum full-back Troy McArthur’s head, inciting a group fracas that led indirectly to the later sin-binning of the Brothers’ number one, his departure accompanied by the all too familiar ‘you’re a grub!’ Mullum might have the higher ranking outfit this season, but Byron’s hecklers leave them for dead when it comes to a juicy turn of phrase. From the penalty – there was an unseemly glut of them awarded to the home side – the prolific Moroney ran an acute angle to cross under the sticks. The Giants were ahead 20-4 and we were all looking forward to our dinner, for it had been a miserable evening. The wits who were snuggled cosily around the Toolshed Bar at halfway had a gay old time – an opposition player takes it up, to the broken-record refrain of ‘here she comes!’ Scintillating, ay? – but the rest of us were wondering why the match could not have been played in the early afternoon’s glorious winter sunshine. By 6.30 it was dark – LDF’s lighting is barely adequate for night football – and, as the poet said, cold enough to freeze the brass off a bald monkey. The Giants are a fine team that plays an attractive brand of footy, but

This will probably involve special legislation to protect the state from compensation claims or compulsory acquisition, or are we being too cynical? â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  â&#x2013;  â&#x2013; 

Thanks to Sally and James from WIRES for their rapid and empathetic response to an Echo drudgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cry for help after hitting a barn owl on the Myocum Road. And to the car that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t slow down despite being flagged, or stop to help after hitting it a second time, ensuring its demise, we hope you enjoyed your TV program when you got home. WIRES asks that drivers are extra alert at this time of year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; warmer days mean more wildlife activity on and near roads. Save the WIRES hotline 6628 1898 to your mobile and carry a towel in the car to keep stunned animals warm and in the dark.
