Let’s have a debate on coastal issues Michael McDonald

Now is the perfect time for a shirewide debate on the issues which affect our coastline, chiefly climate change. It needs to be a free-flowing event, with all kinds of opinions allowed expression, and experts quizzed on their opinions. The time has arrived because last Thursday Byron Shire Council rather painlessly resolved to put its controversial draft Coastal Zone Management Plan (CZMP) on public exhibition. The vote was 8-1 in favour, only Cr Ross Tucker opposed. Rightly or wrongly, various community members took issue with Council’s CZMP during public access. It showed the depth of feeling on the

issue – warranted when households and ecosystems are at stake – and reinforced the need for Council to make its objectives as clear and transparent as possible. Mayor Jan Barham took community consultation into account in her successful motion, which demonstrated her depth of commitment to the coastline plan process. Council resolved to exhibit the CZMP for 60 days from October 22 to December 22, along with the provision of FAQs, fact sheets, online submission forms, a template submission form, a community information stand ‘staffed and available for at least two days in each of the four management units, media releases, advertisements, enews, website information, and ra-

dio announcements. In addition, Cr Barham’s motion calls for a public meeting to ‘be organised if possible to coincide with the NSW Coastal Conference [at Ballina November 3-6, see www.coastalconference.com] for the purpose of conducting a facilitated

panel discussion on the draft CZMP and that the meeting be filmed with the intention of producing a DVD of the presentations that can be made available to the public’. Interestingly, given Council’s insurers’ wish for councillors not to express positions on coastline hazards because of a current court case, Cr Barham’s motion calls for the investigation of ‘the potential for modification of Jonson Street works to reduce the impact on Belongil Beach’, which borders on an admission of liability. Her motion also corrected a consultant’s Herculean efforts (on paper) which moved the rock groyne from Main Beach to Clarkes Beach. On Wednesday last week business lobby group Byron United vice pre-

sident James Lancaster issued a press release which called for the CZMP to be scrapped and ‘a new comprehensive plan utilising current technology and science to be written in collaboration with the state and federal government departments responsible’, a view he again expressed during public access on Thursday. A major concern of BU is that the plan would ‘allow or encourage an ocean breach of the Belongil Spit. This danger affects the immediate area behind the Belongil Spit including the Belongil estuary system, Sunrise residential estate, the Arts and Industrial Estate, the rail corridor, Ewingsdale Road and the Byron Bay CBD. The further negative effects of this continued on page 2

Byron mayor seeks Greens preselection for state seat Mayor Jan Barham is up for Greens preselection as a candidate for a seat in the upper house of NSW parliament, the Legislative Council. Sitting Greens MP Ian Cohen is not going to contest the 2012 election. Cr Barham told The Echo she could not talk about the preselection because of a Greens code on the process. She did say, however, that about 16 individuals from across NSW had nominated for preselection and the process would take about two months. Asked what a successful preselection would mean for her mayoralty, given the state election is in 2011 and the council election in 2012, Cr Barham said, ‘I would do both. That’s what Clover Moore [Lord Mayor of Sydney and state MP] does.’ At the next election Ian Cohen will step down after 16 years as an MP. He intends to do more voluntary work with SurfAid (see article page 19) and expand his interest in using cane toad skins as leather products. ‘I really do have an obsession about cane toads,’ Mr Cohen said. ‘I want to use this feral pest as a fashion accou-

trement. There is a long history of its use and it makes a beautiful leather. I might also see if the rear legs can be exported to France. ‘And after being in Sydney for so long I’ll be happy to spend some time at home and participate in the local community – and be a nuisance to those who deserve it.’

2 October 13, 2009 The Byron Shire Echo

Byron Shire Council last week voted 7-2, Crs Tucker and Woods opposed, to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;Ś determine that the dominant use of residential dwellings for the purpose of holiday letting, ie tourism use, is an activity that requires an approval in line with the provisions identified in the Building Code of Australia, NSW fire regulations and the Conveyancing Act and as defined in previous court judgements and therefore is required to be a regulated activity in the LEPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Council also resolved to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;note the WA Planning Commission Guidelines of Holiday homes: Short Stay Use of Residential Dwellings Accommodationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Mayor Jan Barham also provided councillors with background to various court cases related to holiday letting. Staff are also to report to Council any potential holiday letting compliance matters. Cr Barham later told The Echo she was misquoted in an article in The Australian on the weekend. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I said holiday letting was unregulated but I did not say it was illegal.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; In related news local activist Fast Buck$ issued a challenge to the head of the Holiday Let-

ting Organisation: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;For years the holiday letting lobby has been waving around legal notice that supposedly says that holiday letting is legal. I challenge John Gudgeon of HLO to provide me with a copy of such advice so that I can analyse it.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Buck$ claimed in an opinion piece in The Echo that he has seen legal advice which says that holiday letting in residential zones is not legal. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I am now convinced that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s illegal, end of story, regardless of what the Department of Planning might suggest or what particular lawyers might have been paid to say,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Buck$ said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Even Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planning director Ray Darney has conceded that the legal precedents go against the practice; residential zoning means long-term, permanent accommodation. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mr Gudgeon says Jan Barham is grasping at straws with her plans to move against holiday letters, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bet that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his legal advice that is made of straw.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; In response Mr Gudgeon told The Echo, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I note his interest and opinion but respectfully decline his offer. I must admit though taking a wager on his bet is sorely tempting.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

DCZMP will have enormous environmental, social, economic and financial repercussions for the community, Byron Shire ratepayers and all residents of the north coast of NSW.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Byron United also supports â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the call from both the NSW Department of Environment and Climate Change and Water [DECCW] and the NSW Department of Planning for the scrapping of the so-called â&#x20AC;&#x153;retreat policyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, and believes the continued pursuit of the DCZMP against the advice of the NSW government and senior legal counsel is unwise use of limited community resour-

ces,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Lancaster said in the press release. Not everyone is impressed with the DECCWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest opinion, however. The Sydney Coastal Councils Group (www. sydneycoastalcouncils.com.au) is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;astonished and dismayed at the apparent new policy position of the NSW governmentâ&#x20AC;Ś that of providing options for beachfront property owners to defend their homes at the expense of the environment and beach amenity generally. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Numerous councils in NSW and around the country are currently looking at Byron Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Planned Retreat Policyâ&#x20AC;? as one of the possible solutions

<echowebsection=Local News>

to address future sea level rise and associated beach erosion resulting from climate change,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says the SCCG. The SCCG believes that statements from DECCW Deputy Director General Simon Smith reported in The Echo of September 22 â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;undermine Byron Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attempts to manage these very difficult issues over the last 20 years in partnership with the NSW government and their communities. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The SCCG believes that allowing beachfront property owners to defend their properties at their cost will only result in the transfer of the real costs of such an intervention to the

community, tourism and the environment resulting in the loss of beach amenity and public access to the coast, to the (short term) benefit of a few property owners. The SCCG is worried that over 20 years of policy development, community consultation, and legal precedents are being ignored with this new poorly thoughtthrough policy positionâ&#x20AC;Ś â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Does DECCW now advocate a policy for property protection without due regard for beach amenity and public access that will simply result in our beaches being swept into the sea?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x2013;  Climate change, page 10,

Monday Painters brighten up museum Story & photo Lou Beauont

A new mural has been custom built and painted in the room dedicated to Aboriginal artifacts in the Mullumbimby Museum. The mural, which crosses two walls, was organised by the Brunswick Valley Historic Society (BVHS) and coordinated by member Danielle Nelson, erected by some members of the BVHS and BTEC Work for the Dole participants, and painted by a local group of painters called ‘The Monday Painters of Mullumbimby’. Lucinda Cox of the BVHS said, ‘Representatives of the local Byron/Tweed Aboriginal Land Council have endorsed the display. We aimed to keep it authentic and historically descriptive and it is intended to add vibrancy to the room while adding a colourful backdrop to the displays.’ The room has recently been reorganised, with the mural a highlight of that refurbishment.

Byron Shire councillors voted last week to accept general manager Graeme Faulkner’s reorganisation of the administration, which includes the new position of climate change manager responsible directly to the GM. The climate change position is expected to cost $113,000 a year. The annual organisation review reduced directors’ tenure from five years to three years and will allow the GM to ‘effect forced redundancies in those circumstances that [he] believes necessary to achieve the organisation structure… having complied with all con-

their respect for the history of the Minyanbal people by better displaying artifacts, images and information which is in their care. Nareda Price of the Monday Painters group drafted the original charcoal drawing onto

the boards before the group painted it together. She said, ‘We had such a wonderful time doing it, it was a real challenge this one, being so big and the way it bends around a corner. A mural like this is such a wonderful thing

to knit people together with a common interest.’ The Mullumbimby Museum (corner Myocum and Stuart Streets, in the market grounds) opens on Fridays from 11am to 3pm and market Saturdays from 9am to midday.

sultation requirements with any affected employees and their union representatives’. Mr Faulkner’s favoured position however is ‘adjustment to the workforce… by way of natural attrition where possible’ which avoids redundancy payouts. The restructure does not go far enough for Cr Tom Tabart, however, who at the confidential meeting called for an external consultant to help improve the organisation’s efficiency. See more detail in Comment on page 10. The Echo believes Cr Tabart had support for the move to begin with but other councillors wavered after assurances from the GM he could handle the job.

Directors are no longer Directors but are now called Executive Managers. Under the new six department structure, community services is subsumed into the Society and Culture department, planning and natural resources become part of Environment and Land Uses, and Community Infrastructure contains open space and recreation and works. The only department to retain its original name is Water and Recycling Services. New positions which councillors have approved apart from the climate change manager include Executive Manager, Society and Culture ($128,000pa), Executive Manager, Executive

Services ($128,000pa) and two climate change research officers ($140,000pa total). Oneoff costs for vehicles and office setup come to $135,000 for the positions. Mr Faulkner believes that ‘natural attrition’ of employee positions will help cover the cost of new positions. He notes in his report to councillors that that policy has resulted ‘in the redundancy of 13.8 vacant positions with recurrent savings of $497,462’. After some of that money went to hiring an internal auditor, media officer and executive assistant for the mayor, savings came to $271,000. ■ Comment, page 10

Grail Quest

Introduction to Grail Quest (an 8-week course) which is the opening term of the two year parttime foundation course.

...a journey into the Spiritual Science of Rudolf Steiner...

GRAIL QUEST offers a modern form of adult education based on the work of Rudolf Steiner. Through a deepened understanding of the inner workings of the world and ourselves, inner development and soul transformation are brought about. This in turn leads to an enhanced capacity to transform the outer world. The course consists of lectures, discussions and workshops which are expanded through artistic experiences in music, painting, sculpture, story telling, speech, drama, craft and the new art of eurythmy. No previous artistic experience is necessary. The emphasis of the course is away from competition and is focused on individual growth. The course aims to teach through the heart, hand and mind and to bring our efforts to fruition through love of the deed. GRAIL QUEST is also the prerequisite for the Steiner Teacher Training programme.

Minister opens new Mullumbimby SES base NSW emergency services minister Steve Whan last week officially opened the new Mullumbimby State Emergency Service (SES) headquarters. Mr Whan joined SES Commissioner Murray Kear, Labor ‘Duty MLC’ Amanda Fazio, Ballina MP Donald Page along with unit volunteers and Byron Shire Mayor Jan Barham for the opening of the $235,000 facility. ‘This new headquarters building, with its improved facilities, will help the volunteers provide an even greater level of protection to the people of Mullumbimby and the surrounding areas,’ Mr Whan said. ‘The members of the Mullumbimby unit responded

with dedication and professionalism to a series of significant flood events in the first half of the year, providing their community with help and support at a time of need. ‘This new base includes a specially equipped operations and communications room, ample storage and upgraded facilities for volunteers, as well as garaging for the unit’s vehicles and two flood boats. This will be the hub for the local SES to coordinate the response to natural disasters such as floods and severe storms. ‘I am also pleased to present a cheque for $5,000 to the unit towards air conditioning for the new facility.’ SES Commissioner Murray

Kear said the contribution of the volunteers to their community could not be over-estimated. ‘The members of the Mullumbimby SES deserve to be recognised for their commitment to serving their community,’ he said. ‘Some of these members have given many years of service to their community, helping others when they need assistance with storms, floods and searches for lost and missing persons.’ While in town Mr Whan also issued a press release thanking the thousands of emergency services and recovery personnel who helped Northern NSW during the floods. ‘The people of the State’s

north have long experience with flooding but enduring three major floods within four months has been a real test of these communities’ resilience,’ Mr Whan said. ‘As always, our emergency services turned out in the worst of the conditions to help people who were flooded, isolated or needed to be rescued. ‘This was then followed by a tremendous effort by numerous agencies, local Recovery Committees and North Coast Flood Recovery Coordinator Ken Moroney to help people and communities get back on their feet.’ The government recently set up a State Disaster Recovery Advisory Group.

The recent Launch Exhibition of the 2010 Byron Bay Art Diary saw over 200 people try valiantly to fit into the gallery space at 2 Fletcher Street. With the crowd spilling out onto the street many supporters of the edition were forced to return the next day to see the art sale properly. Mayor Jan Barham thanked

local businesses, the artists and galleries for their involvement in the Byron Bay Art Diary and urged the crowd to take advantage of the current government tax breaks on purchases of new art works. Diary administrator Jan Smith kept the 2010 selected artists busy signing the edition for eager buyers.

Main Arm Upper Public School students get creative with their current film-making project on the theme of ‘light and dark’. Years 4/5/6 experience all aspects of this process from scripting their own story, through to filming, acting and editing, thanks to digital technology and the guidance of filmmaker Sharon Shostak, who has been film tutor at the school for the past five years.

Caravan park move welcome In a recent press release Byron Shire councillor Patrick Morrisey said, ‘I’m pleased Council resolved unanimously at its [meeting last Thursday] to call for proposals for new caravan parks and manufactured home sites in the Shire. ‘The rise in the cost of land over the past ten years, combined with competing uses of existing rental housing stock, such as for tourism, has made it increasingly difficult for residents and would-be residents to purchase or even rent housing without committing to very high mortgages or rents, which put pressure on people’s

everyday quality of life. ‘Council has resolved for anyone in the shire to come forward with their proposals for establishing new caravan parks on either public or private land. ‘Personally I think they should be located close to existing services, infrastructure, schools and public transport, such as towns like Mullumbimby, Bangalow, Byron Bay, Brunswick Heads and Ocean Shores, however decisions should and will be based proper planning principles and on merit.’ ■ Letters, page 11

Makeover for Yellow Church Story & photo Lou Beaumont

The Yellow Church Yoga Studio in Myocum Street, Mullumbimby has had a big makeover thanks to owner and yoga teacher Diana Ewing. The building is in its 106th year and its second home. Originally the Yellow Church lived in the centre of town, in Stuart Street, but was purchased and moved by Robyn and Dave Sweaney in 1996 when the building could no longer accommodate the needs of the Mullumbimby Presbyterian Church. The 1903 teak and cedar building was renovated by the Sweaneys the year it was moved, making current owner Diana’s renovation the second major one in recent history. For five long months Diana has been personally hard at work painting, however, towards the end of the renovations it was necessary to call in professional help due to the height of the ceiling and eaves. The exceptionally long teak floorboards inside the building, previously darkened over time, have been sanded, renailed, filled and polished to enhance their naturally light colour. A new deck greets yoga stu-

Man likely to plead guilty in Milli’s case Mina Nashed, 19, of Brisbane has pleaded guilty to charges relating to the death of Byron identity Milli O’Nair on May 10 this year. Milli, 41, died after being struck by a truck on the highway at Tyagarah while riding her bicycle. Nashed appeared in Lismore Local Court last week to charges of dangerous driving causing death, negligent driving causing death, driving with an illicit drug (cannabis) present in his blood, low-range drink-driving (0.055), and failing to stop and assist after a fatal accident. Crown prosecutor Brendan Queenan advised the court that Nashed was likely to plead guilty to the charge of dangerous driving causing death. Magistrate Michael Dakin asked Nashed if he had any objection to the prosecutor’s advice and he did not. Mr Dakin then adjourned the case to November 3.

Bambuild showcases bamboo’s strengths Victoria Cosford

The inaugural Byron Bambuild, running from October 3 to 18, consists of a series of workshops exploring building with bamboo, culminating in an Open Day for the whole family. This is a joint initiative by BambooStone Foundation and Artecoop. Topics covered at the workshop include the harvesting and processing of bamboo as well as architectural ideas. According to Paul Dumais, one of the organisers, bamboo is a ‘green champion’. ‘Building with bamboo’, he told The Echo, ‘is not only earth- and environment-friendly but it enables people to grow and build their own home. No mortgage,

no expensive tools, no building industry bullshit, no toxic chemicals and fittings made in countries where environments are trashed along with human rights and local economies...’ Bambuild will offer a strong contingent of talented bamboobuilders, designers, architects and craftsmen/women who will be sharing their knowl-

Trumpet legend a score for Bellingen Peter James Dawson

A tremendous coup for the Bellingen Global Carnival on the Labour Day long weekend was the booking of South African legend Hugh Masekela, who as a member of the African National Congress fled into exile from the Apartheid regime in the 1960s, to make his living playing trumpet and flugelhorn in England, America and Europe. In 1968 he had his biggest hit with the unforgettable single â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Grazing In The Grassâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, resulting in the formation of his own record label. In the mid-70s he moved back to Africa â&#x20AC;&#x201C; first to Guinea, then Liberia and Ghana, where inspired by Nigeriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fela Kuti he began exploring the Afrobeat style, teaming with Ghanaian band Hedzoleh Soundz. An exponent of Soweto township jive, his influence on Paul Simon resulted in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Gracelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; album and he toured with Simon and fellow exile, his wife the late Miriam Makeba, to

Led by Columbian singerguitarist Oscar Jimenez, Watussi were the last of the wild boys at the Carnival packing them in at the Concert Stage, as they raged with horns, Cuban percussion and screaming guitars breaks, with its members cavorting in blissful abandon to the crowdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious delight!

Cannabis clinics judged to be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;very effectiveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; It is just over a year since the Cannabis Treatment Clinics were established by North Coast Area Health Service (NCAHS) to provide specialist services in relation to cannabis use to the people living on the north coast. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The program has been welcomed by health providers and the community, with around 240 clients being seen by clinic staff across the NCAHS over the last 12 months,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Dr Hermann Neukirch, NCAHS, Clinical Coordinator, Cannabis Clinics. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The program has been very effective, showing a high rate of program completion. At completion, clients reported a significant reduction in relation to their concerns such as cannabis dependence, other drug use, anxiety and depression. In addition, 87% of cli-

ents completing the program reduced or ceased use.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Cannabis Treatment Clinics offer free, confidential treatment for people 16 years of age and over who are concerned about their own cannabis use or that of their children or family. This includes people wanting to stop or reduce their use and people wanting support with related issues.

Range of services Mr John Leary, NCHAS Director, Drug and Alcohol Services said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Cannabis Treatment Clinics provide a range of comprehensive, individually tailored services, including assessment, counselling, withdrawal management, education and support. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Services are particularly targeting young people and

<echowebsection=Local News>

people experiencing both mental health and cannabis use problems. The Clinics are staffed by qualified health professionals and supported by medical staff, where required. The service is funded by the state government and recognises that specific, discreet services in relation to cannabis use need to be provided in the community to address the range of issues cannabis users commonly face.

Widely used Dr Neukirch said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cannabis is the most widely used drug in Australia after tobacco and alcohol. While the effects of use vary from person to person, some people might find that their use of cannabis brings about unwanted changes in their lives.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Studies have supported concerns raised by users, showing that for some people cannabis use can lead to health and social issues, including ongoing dependence, medical and financial issues, legal, work or educational difficulties, anxiety, depression, and memory and motivational problems. Clinic staff will address all of these issues.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Cannabis Clinic program is offered in Community Health Centres throughout the NCAHS region. The service is available in Lismore, Casino, Nimbin, Ballina, Byron Bay, Mullumbimby, Murwillumbah, Tweed Heads, Grafton, Kempsey and Port Macquarie. Clients and health professionals can phone 1300 664 098 for further information or to make an appointment.

Voluntary permanent water saving measures in place in Rous region Rous Water and the local councils of Ballina, Byron, Lismore and Richmond Valley have introduced voluntary permanent water saving measures for all town water users, after its proposal received strong support from the community. All residents and businesses are being encouraged to comply with the measures, which are currently in place, to ensure sustainable water use throughout the region. Cr Col Sullivan, Chair of Rous Water said, ‘These voluntary measures will be part of our ongoing commitment to sustainable water use in the region.’ Kyme Lavelle, general manager of Rous Water, said, ‘These measures would be voluntary and separate from the mandatory water restrictions that are implemented during dry times. ‘The survey found very

strong support within the community for permanent water conservation measures, regardless of dam levels. ‘These measures will therefore be in place on an ongoing basis and will ensure sensible and sustainable use of potable water throughout the region. ‘We want to ensure that our precious potable water is not being wasted by excessive use for unsustainable practices.’ The measures are now in place and will restrict the use of potable water for activities such as hosing of hard surfaces and garden watering times. The full list of suggested measures can be seen on Rous Water’s website at www.rouswater.nsw.gov.au. Alternatively, contact Rous Water for the list on 1800 450 203. The level of Rous’s main supply, the Rocky Creek Dam, is at 89% as of last Sunday.

correspondent for The Guardian, notes that ‘According to the UN rules, for a new treaty to be agreed, every country must sign up – a challenging requirement.’ Especially as the US has not ratified the first agreement begun at Kyoto in 1997, and now has to be drawn into the process. ‘Behind the scenes, pessimism about the Copenhagen talks is rising,’ writes Adam. ‘Despite references in the text to a global goal and collective emission cuts of 25-40% by 2020 for rich countries, many observers believe there is little chance such an approach will succeed.’ Adam goes on to quote ‘a top European official’ saying that ‘once all the carbon off-

Commitments made by developed countries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, when added together, fall short of stabilising global temperatures at a level that averts dangerous climate change, claims WRI, whose website carries the telling slogan, ‘Earth Doesn’t Do Bailouts’.

In search of an affordable home ■ Tim Browning (Letters, Octo-

ber 6) raises an issue that is on the cusp of reaching a critical mass in this shire. There would be many residents who, like myself, arrived on her doorstep with little more than a yearning for a better life. Some of us have seen through many changes. We were here when the biggest gig in town was Centrelink in Byron Bay. We have made contributions, with our many businesses and professional skills. We have raised our own little shirelings, and put them into schools that were, in some instances, threatened with closure due to falling numbers. We have bought pieces of land that were affordable on the generally below average incomes that a rural town can provide. In many cases, that meant that we were put into compromised positions in terms of legality of structures or zoning. But we have made do. As the saying goes, where others saw adversity, we saw opportunity. We have nursed land once butchered by reckless farming practices back into healthy dispositions. We have put infrastructure in places that

were overlooked. We have created manageable eco and fire safe systems. We have created low impact lifestyles. Many of us know one another, if not by name, at least by face, after many years of crossing paths in community halls and events, schools and local businesses, helping to build the social and cultural bridges upon which this shire earns its reputation. This is our community. But owing to the curiosities of local planning policy, some of us now face the possibility of eviction from all we have created. There are 20 adults and children that I speak on behalf of, and we are just a fraction of the problem. Unauthorised dwellings in Byron Shire were once par for the course, and unrecognised MOs continue to form a significant part of this group. But they inevitably must be dealt with, and in many instances the best recourse would be the implementation of SEPP 15. I am positive that we are not the only landowners affected by this anomaly who would willingly benefit from an opportunity to gain approval. Nor are we the only people who will be Well, read this, Pam, and your mates on the JRPP – we have you and the pretend state government sussed and you are all on notice.

It was good to see someone getting a job for a change after not having her contract renewed? Pamela Westing has gone onto bigger ($?) and better (?) employment with Northern Region’s new Joint Regional Planning Panel (JRPP). Sounds like a bigger and better job for our ex GM Pammy.

Congratulations to Suffolk Park Progress Association on your 50th birthday. I don’t want to put a dampener on the party but I would like to challenge your assertion that you are the ‘longest, continuously running progress association in Byron Shire’. Harry Wraight was awarded

It would be nice to think we could create affordable housing magically. The equation is, small simple dwelling + small piece of the land in a shitty location + efficient shared infrastructure = low cost affordable housing. Caravan parks are probably the most affordable solution. Thirty to forty years ago Australians understood this but in the consumer age of cheap credit we mostly middle class people have forgotten. Cutting 2-5 hectare parcels off farming land creates large windfall profits for individuals but little public benefit, especially not affordable housing because land this size encapsulates the treechanger dream. A dream that on the north coast I have seen fall apart repeatedly as constant rural maintenance, particularly lawn mowing, defeats people. Multiple occupancies are a genuine alternative and a reevaluation of rural land sharing laws is past due. In this

Harry could not recall the exact date BHPA was established but claimed it was up and running long before he joined in 1932. I remember him saying BHPA was not the oldest PA in NSW but it was one of the few that had been run continuously and kept operating during the war years. BHPA continues to meet on the first Monday of every month in Memorial Hall. In recent years it has adopted a very low profile and avoided participation in controversial issues so it’s not surprising Suf-

Mullumbimby folk Park members may have the impression BHPA no longer exists. Harry Wraight and his fellow BHPA members were never shy to take up a challenge and their contribution has had a long lasting impact on this community. Whether it’s inertia, or a welcome respite for the current membership, inevitably BHPA will rally to face the consequences of climate change and the next wave of developer/speculators when the new sewerage works comes on line and the building frenzy gets underway. continued overleaf

case land is not broken up, and therefore effective land management is more possible. Ironically multiple occupancy legislation has a central stated purpose of creating low cost housing in rural areas. The legislation was created in more enlightened times. Unfortunately council and state government have almost strangled it as a viable form of land stewardship and affordable housing. On the positive side the state government released on July 31 a new State Planning Policy for Affordable Housing that is surprisingly enlightened. It gives urban property owners with more than 450sqm the right to build a secondary dwelling without development consent of up to 60sqm (a granny flat). So hopefully the new blocks created on Left Bank Road are at least 600sqm. Unfortunately the way 99% of suburban development is created is ugly, for this I sympathise with current Left Bank Road residents. There are other ways, but most developers are too greedy, too risk averse and too stupid to attempt the alternatives.

Council and shifting coastal sands

Last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s editorial comment on the Belongil situation made some very relevant and realistic points. So did the letters from Keine Nombre, M Gordos, and Owen Hughes. Those of us who live at Belongil all accept that we are at the mercy of the elements. We all accept that a whole range of things have and will continue to contribute to the erosion of

our beach, and indeed coastal communities everywhere. Sandmining, global warming, rising sea levels etc â&#x20AC;&#x201C; yes, they are all factors. People who bought beachfront properties 20 or 30 years ago didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really give much thought to whether their houses would still be there in 50 or 100 years time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; why would they? As kids, everyone experienced cyclones on the Gold Coast, and saw the beaches disappear, and hell, six months later, come back again. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just how nature worked its magic. No-one really knew back then that global warming was going to be an issue, that sea levels were rising, that we had holes in ozone layers etc etc. But OK, we know it now. So to M Gordos firstly, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it is realistic to say that people who bought beachfront houses decades ago should be blamed or disadvantaged for not undertaking suitable due diligence. Nobody knew what due diligence was back then. So OK, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll cop what nature throws at us. Still doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean

we shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the right to take whatever measures we can to protect our properties, but OK, even if we do that, we accept that maybe somewhere 20, 30 or 50 years down the track, Belongil and a whole stack of other coastal communities may not be there. But what we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cop is Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absolute refusal to acknowledge that their actions 40 years ago in constructing the groyne downtown, and that hideous swimming pool (what were they thinking? why the hell do you build a swimming pool at the beach?), has significantly, significantly, exacerbated the rate of erosion at Belongil. Despite what the Green radicals say, despite what the self-proclaimed â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;millionaireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bashing, coastal â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;expertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Matthew Lambourne has to say to the contrary, Belongil residents have the facts from the truly qualified experts that this is undisputedly the case. Of course Council wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ackowledge it to be true, because they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to pay for the removal of the Jonson Street rock wall.

Instead, they move as fast as they can to introduce a CZMP which satisfies the Mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s zeal against the Belongil community, a document that prompts Cr Cameron to write self-serving feelgood letters attempting to hide his glee at the downfall of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;millionairesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, all supported by a committee that includes the aforementioned Mr Lambourne, whose complete bias against the residents of Belongil is well documented in a string of letters. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just hope that this council keeps pushing against the state government on this issue, and that they push so hard that the State eventually puts them into administration, and a group of fair thinking, nonbiased, moderate people get to sit in the chair, and bring some sanity to the process. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take our chances fighting nature as long as humanly possible, and as long as we continue to pay rates and taxes, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll fight for the right to protect what we apparently should have done due diligence on a couple of decades ago.

town still wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shop there. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also noticeable that many of the more senior employees are from out of town and drive to work each day. A Woolworths insider has admitted that the company prefers staff from out of town because it reduces â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;mistakesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at the till when serving friends and neighbours.

I finally gave up through boredom. He didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear to be making any progress. Recently, on Fast Buck$â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good advice I picked up the most recent edition. How does one respond to a man standing on the corner shouting at the traffic? Is it not delusional when you believe that violence and bullying in this area began and was caused by the arrival of hippy â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;gangsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;? Is it not delusional to believe that you can tell at a glance, on the streets of Brunswick Heads, a holiday resort, whether the people you observe are bludging on society and have nothing going on in their lives because they were drinking their

â&#x2013;  Move a rock, chop down a tree, build a road, every time we alter the balance in an attempt to solve one problem we inevitably create another. The fact is the sea and the land have always been at war and probably always will be. The best thing we can do is to stand back a bit, stop repositioning the goalposts and let this balance return. Sand will come and go as it always has but the real Australia is actually made of rock. Shifting coastal sands should never have been assumed as land in the first place and I think Byron Shire Council is finally getting the idea.

So Woolworths has promised jobs to employees of Mallams in Mullumbimby? Get it in writing, my friends! From Malenyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experience with Woolworths, they cannot be trusted. Our long fight against a supermarket here, which we lost, was littered with lie after lie from the retail giant and the developer. They played the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;jobsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; card early and often. Five years later our â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;big boxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; does employ some locals but they are mostly very young and casuals (cheaper with no job seMichele Grant curity).

Goannas demand rail line rights The news that railway land may be sold is an alarming development in the ongoing debate as to the future of the Casino to Murwillumbah rail line. Reminds me of when tram tracks fell out of favour and were ripped up all over the country. I have now come up with compelling new evidence regarding hitherto unrecognised demand. Not only is the line a wildlife corridor, but it also provides high speed transit for goannas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at least the same speed as the previous XPT. We must fight the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regressive and warped thinking with vigour. I have now appointed myself as representative for the Byron Shire Goannas Rail Line Users Group.

The Lismore to Bangalow road is at capacity and the bottleneck into Byron Bay is legendary. Another half a billion or so. Every time we have a major upgrade to our highways we see a surge in traffic on our local roads. Our councils are struggling to pay for all the road maintenance. We have people who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get jobs due to lack of public transport, and people cut off from health services. For example, the nearest breast screen clinic is now in Tweed. How many women will miss out on early detection? What will be the cost of later treatment, in terms of personal suffering and health care dollars? In this context $60 million is money well spent, or even the $150 million that Labor estimated as the cost for heavy rail.

Mr Faulkner also stated that overall operations cost only increased by 5.7%. This being the case, Mr Faulkner may be able to explain to the ratepayers who have just received their water rates which have increased by 20% plus. Operational costs have also been reduced by the implementation of not manning the Mullumbimby water filtration plant as stated previously. Another factor in reducing operations cost would be

This is not surprising in view of the fact that the plant had ceased being manned for a considerable period last year, being shut down Friday afternoons and being restarted on Monday mornings. He also stated that Mullumbimby used 5.2% less water than the year before. This is also not surprising in view of the very long wet period (as acknowledged by Mr Faulkner) we experienced early in this year and the fact that the mains pressure is able to be reduced by manipulating the main valve adjacent to the Mullumbimby Co-Op which

10 GOOD REASONS TO CHOOSE BIKRAM YOGA 1. The postures are pure, 5000 year old Hatha Yoga Postures created to heal the body. They have not been modiďŹ ed for western bodies to make it easy and so they do what the Yogis intended; they heal the body and calm the mind in preparation for deep meditation. 2. The lineage of Bikram Yoga is pure: BABJI NAGARAJ-LAHIRI MAHASAYASRI YUKTESWAR-PARAMAHANSA YOGANANDA- (HIS BROTHER)BISHNU CHARAN GOSH- BIKRAM CHOUDHURY-ALL CERTIFIED BIKRAM YOGA INSTUCTORS WHO ARE TRAINED ONLY BY BIKRAM. 3. The Bikram sequence took 5 years to perfect based on science with the purpose of maintaining optimum health in the human body. 4. The heated room allows even the stiffest of bodies to stretch and sweat out impurities. So it suits all levels of ďŹ tness. 5. It reduces stress, improves sleep, develops muscle tone, builds strength and stamina, improves breathing and is excellent for back pain, sports injuries and aids weight loss. 6. You get results quickly- people report having more ďŹ&#x201A;exibility, vitality and energy in the ďŹ rst week. 7. You will burn 800-900 calories per class. 8. First time locals pay $20 for 7 days of Yoga. 9. With direct debit packages you pay as little as $4.50 per class! 10. Your body is ageing as you read this - you can slow it down with Bikram Yoga!

the reduced manning of some waste water sewage treatment plants by qualified staff. His defence of the hiring of suitably qualified personnel meeting essential criteria is flawed because the last positions advertised in water and recycling, one of them being for a SCADA qualified technician, was not met and filled by a domestic electrician. Is Mr Faulkner aware that senior staff in water and recycling became the first point of contact for out of hour callout incidents and the senior staff made the judgement as to whether the call warranted qualified staff being called out or not to resolve the issue? The majority of preventative maintenance in water and recycling is computer generated, already in place and is a matter of ticking squares and returning the completed checklist to the appropriate person. Mr Faulkner, can you assure the Councillors that this preventative maintenance is being and has been consistently carried out? The short term measures carried out to give a perceived small gain in cost compared to other councils will come in the long term to cost us dearly in breakdowns and equipment replacement. The other side of the coin is the possible long term damage to our environment as has happened in the past.

A great start in life When my daughter came home in tears recently because her school years were about to end I was bemused. Most people I know were glad that school was finally over. When we attended her final school assembly I couldn’t help thinking what a contrast it was to my own experience. Having been sent to one of Australia’s most expensive private schools, driven by a spirit of elitism, competition and a distinct lack of empathy for others, our final assembly was in the cold school chapel with the headmaster waffling on about

how privileged we were having attended such an esteemed institution. The fact that my old school now has a whole new wing dedicated to making students feel happy reflects how miserable many actually feel! At Byron High the feeling I got was of a place that provided an atmosphere encouraging students to reach their full potential in a spirit of cooperation and emulation with others. The speeches and awards by the principal, teachers and students were inspiring and amusing. The school seems to have

captured the essence of things that matter most, without the hype. A quote from one speech was that ‘it is nice to be important, but more important to be nice.’ Seeing many students leaving in tears showed how much the school means to them. I would like to thank all the staff, students and many others that have made the school what it is, and given these young people a great start in life, and good luck to them all in the upcoming HSC exams.

If this area, Byron Shire, is attracting strong applicant interest because of our location as claimed by Mr Faulkner, why are so many qualified staff resigning or taking extended long service, stress and/or sick leave?

it refers to increased property prices and share prices, and then it’s a good thing. Of late The Australian newspaper had been leading the charge to put rates up again because the economy is improving. Thousands of words have been written about the case for putting interest rates up without mentioning inflation once. Indeed the best and only argument to date has been that interest rates have been at a historically low level, therefore we ought to put them up (!). I don’t know much about finance and economics but I do know a rat when I see one. It seems to me that the beneficiaries of higher interest rates are those fortunate enough to have large cash deposits – who of course will also be the people who have share and land portfolios. So when they see people spending so much on consumer goods that it puts prices up, they want a larger share of the bounty to compensate them for the reduced purchasing power of their cash reserves, and Glen Stevens concurs. It also occurs to me that interest is really a form of taxation, one imposed by the Reserve Bank and very regressive in nature. Now why do we hear business complaining about high taxes and how they restrict economic activity, but never about the same effect when it results from interest rates? I wonder if we’ll ever know a world where we’re not being continuously bullshitted to....

just the opposite, but this is, to say the least, a bit confronting. If the aim is to keep out the riffraff I hope it works for them and helps them to sleep through these troubled times. While the peasants are clamouring at the gates though, I hope there are a few taggers and graffitti artists among them to at least make it an interesting eyesore.

Sport madness Living on such an isolated and tightly managed island as we do, I wish to express my disgust at a lazy and parochial nationwide media, and the power and authority we give them to shape the collective. I personally have never squandered my precious time watching television, and there is not a newspaper in the country I feel comfortable buying, so my focus is on our radio news, and the way it is presented. Particularly disgusting would have to be how the tragedies happening in our world are garnished with ‘sport’. The Bulldogs beat The Roosters and The Sharks beat The Tigers – sport, sport, sport, peppered on to tragedy. Am I alone in feeling that this mix of news and sport diminishes the suffering of others, and shows an enormous lack of empathy for non-Australians? This week I catch the headline ‘Six Australians missing as tsunami hits Pacific’ or what about ‘Four Australians airlifted by private jet to Brisbane’. I personally find all this parochial chest beating very offensive, along with the inclusion of sport in our news bulletins. And what’s with all this sport anyway, billions of dollars spent, such fanaticism and what do we get? Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, oi, oi, oi. More tragedy and cricket on the way, and The Swans beat The Bulldogs. Dave Sherlock

A hidden tax Sometime last year I had a letter in The Echo questioning the basis of the Reserve Bank’s interest policy; supposedly interest rates were being put up in order to control inflation. Inflation is stated to be a bad thing – except of course when 14 October 13, 2009 The Byron Shire Echo

A wall too far What’s with the huge concrete block wall around the outer perimeter of the new development at North Angels Beach, East Ballina? As the wall progresses one wonders if we will see guard towers and razor wire on completion. Is it Mr Condon’s doing (developer and current leader in Ballina’s white shoe brigade) or did Ballina Council in its wisdom see a reason for it? Neither Mr Condon or Ballina Council are known for their tasteful development, in fact

What a buzz What a buzz to live in such a generous and creative community! About 20 local performers – poets, musos, and hula dancers – gave their all to an audience of about 80 receptive listeners at the Drill Hall on Friday night to launch All the Way Home. This anthology published by the all-volunteer Dangerously Poetic Press was itself a co-creation: the words of 19 poets and paintings by Robyn Sweaney. And thanks goes to our poetry loving mayor, Jan Barham, for doing the honours. It was an evening that will smile in our memories for years to come. Laura Jan Shore

Koala rescue It’s been a busy time for wildlife carers lately with the warm weather and much of our wildlife is on the move with the seasonal change, searching for food and having young and nesting etc as one would expect. During the week there were reports of an adult female koala seen in Mullumbimby, suffering from conjunctivitis, perhaps chlamydia and obviously disorientated and distressed. Finally after much searching, it was discovered in a tree in the carpark by the Poinciana Café at the busiest time of the day, nine o’clock in the morning, with cars streaming into town and people making their way to work and to the shops. If it wasn’t for the concerned and caring people of Mullum, it could have easily led to a tragic outcome. A big thankyou to Sandesh for alerting WIRES and, continued on page 16

Lions recognise community stalwarts At the dinner meeting of the Brunswick Mullumbimby Lions Club on Tuesday October 6, two well known Brunswick Valley identities were presented with the highest award provided by the Lions International organisation. Margaret Giles, a member

of the local Quota service club, received the Melvin Jones award for her ongoing service to the local community by way of being the organiser of the Australia Day Breakfast In The Park for the last 23 years. Margaret is also a key member of the Mullumbimby Anglican

Church and was very active in securing funds for the recent church tower restoration project. Jan Mangleson also was awarded a Melvin Jones Fellowship as recognition of her services to the local and wider community. Jan served on the

MULLUMBIMBY

Byron Shire Council for nine years and has been active in many local community ventures. Among many other activities Jan worked to see the formation of the Nursing Mothers Association in Byron Bay in 1978. She also played a leading hand in seeing a birthing unit established at the Mullumbimby Hospital. In presenting the awards, Club President Cheryl Nylund observed that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;it is a great pleasure for our club and organisation to acknowledge the selfless spirit of these two industrious and dedicated community leaders.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

LPG costs I own a large 4WD, so being environmentally responsible I took the option to convert to LPG fuel. This has reduced my emissions by 75% and fuel costs by around 50%. I took advantage of the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s LPG conversion rebate of $2,000 which made it a lot less painful on the old hip pocket

nerve but once I started buying the actual LPG I made some ugly discoveries. I have reason to go to Tweed Heads on a regular basis and have been able to buy LPG for around 50c per litre. This price does vary from time to time but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty much whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on. In Byron Bay the price at the two BP stations (Ewingsdale and Suffolk Park) owned by the same company/ person I believe, is consistently about 20c per litre more. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 40% more ! The price of unleaded petrol at these outlets is only a few cents more than Tweed, maybe 10% more. The only other LPG suppliers in the north of the shire are at Brunswick Heads or Tyagarah where the price is only marginally cheaper than Byron. By the way, LPG is cheaper in Lismore and Kyogle where they are further from bulk suppliers.

Boulders wanted I am writing to draw community attention to the degradation of the fragile coastal environment surrounding the fire trail south of the Surf Club in Brunswick Heads. Illegal intrusion of vehicles onto fragile dune top-soils and vegetation causes major concern regarding erosion, damage to coastal vegatation and wildlife habitats, and very real fears of bushfires in the area. In discussion with our Park Superintendent Andrew Erskine, Norman Graham from National Parks and Frank McLeod from the Department of Lands in Grafton, we agree that this matter requires urgent attention. All three local government bodies are keen to collaborate with our Brunswick community to provide a sustainable solution for the area locally known as the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;fire trailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, however we need your assistance.

Whitefellas trap We whitefellas have run into a trap of our own choosing. It is a trap that has a length of centuries and is made of technology dependence. Most people who run into the trap bang against a wall of material attachment that prevents them progressing. The wall has a sign on it that can be seen occasionally on misguided approaches to superhighways. It says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Stop. Go back. You are going the wrong way.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; People push up against the wall wanting apparently to continue a suicidal journey into the face of oncoming traffic. The oncoming traffic is environmental degradation and its flagship, climate change. The trap of technological dependence is entirely synonymous with ecological unsustainability. One cannot become ecologically unsustainable except by becoming technologically dependent. A corollary is that ecological sustainability occurs only as one becomes technologically independent. There is a way out of the trap. It is extremely simple and yet at the same time extremely disconcerting... for white fellas. Turn around and face the other way! If we look in the direction from which we came, centuries upon centuries back, we will notice the entrance to the trap. As with superhighways, where one is in danger of confronting oncoming traffic, the way back is the way forward. Technology cannot save us. It is the trap. Once there is admittance of this, and the facing of the other way, so begins a return journey that is never the same as the coming â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;forwardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Discoveries are made of the perfection of nature that were not noticed in the journey to technocracy, for technocracy is the organisation of society around a belief in the imperfection of nature. However much we might have pride in the rationality of our society, the latter is based in a belief of the imperfection of nature which is not objective fact. Humanity does not meaningfully progress physically. We have been warned for centuries and across cultures and scriptures, to not physically attach. Humanity progresses in change of perceptions brought on by experience. Geoff Dawe

Truth for Jai: putting together the jigsaw puzzle Steve Drummond recounts the feelings of a father who has lost a son and calls for the truth to come out. Hi, firstly a huge thankyou for all donations and support to Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family up to this time, in particular Roger and Robbie for their generosity, support and compassion in the early stages of this nightmare. It has been a tremendous help. From the onset of this tragedy, personally normality ceased to exist. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want it to be but the incredible grief and loss attached to Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death affects almost every thought. Going to work can be extremely difficult for the simple reason it reminds you of previous happier untroubled times, so the donations for all the family have been greatly received, we thank you so much. People may be commenting how well I might be doing. I wish I were! Jai was and is now the single most important person and love I will ever experience. He was my only child. Vivid memories are here of late, like when I always carried him on my shoulders. We would walk down the main street of Mullumbimby, and he would wave and say hi to everyone. In those moments, I experienced pure unconditional love and pride. He was a happy boy. Therefore, of course the sense of loss is monumental, knowing there are no more memories ahead. I wished I could have told him more how much I loved him and expressed my pride more about the things he did, but sadly, I did not. Jai touched many people with his

presence. He had a following; he was a lover not a fighter. He did not know how! He enjoyed life! The relationship between parent and child is not always a smooth one but you always want to be there to guide them through lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenges. That responsibility comes from being a good parent. The other underlying trait for me as a father to his son is having the instinct to protect him. I failed to do that. Jai went to school on August 28 and in all reality never came out alive. Jai suffered a brain hemorrhage for some reason that day and died quickly. Jai was kept on life support for family and friends to say goodbye. My sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life ended at school that day! Why? What facts I do know are these: there was an argument between Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friends and older students. An ongoing feud over a school table that developed into a fight that moved towards a wall which Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friends sit against at breaks, and somehow there he died. What happened there? There were external injuries on Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body. My journey now, even though sometimes I just want to give up completely or get as far away as possible, is driving me to find out the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;truthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. It has been extremely difficult to find out what happened to Jai that day. Most departments are unable to give me answers, but I do thank the Coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office in Queensland who have kept me up to date at all times.

For many students that day, their lives changed forever! They witnessed their brother and dear friend receive resuscitation after that melee, the trauma attached to this has been horrific. I am sure you all remember, not long ago the community came together in collective grief at Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funeral. He had the most amazing spiritual and colourful sendoff. A huge thankyou to everyone involved. For the Bundgalung and Maori Eldersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; presence and ceremonies I am eternally grateful. To Rangimarie and Rachael for their incredible contribution at that time. Micheal Currie funerals, Nici our celebrant who did Jai justice. People came together to show solidarity at losing such a young life in a supposedly safe environment of a school. There has to be a message sent to all students over this, of truth and consequence, if indeed person or persons were responsible. That must come out. Actions need to be accountable.

No-one expected this to happen but the fact is it has. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Truthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is what we are after, nothing more. Therefore, this situation needs full investigation as thoroughly as possible to get to the truth. On 28.08.09, the world changed forever for me. The last five weeks my main priority has been to remain as calm as possible to focus on all avenues of communication to various departments to find out answers about my son. A situation I would not in the world wish upon anyone. My primal instincts, believe me, are not so patient or understanding. This tragedy has affected so many people, especially kids, it is important they see that society in general can find the truth through the appropriate channels. I personally will continue until that goal is reached and I will do this in honour of my beautiful son Jai. I cannot do this alone. I appeal to any part of the community to help this along. People who have not come forward who may have seen things, no matter how trivial. It is putting pieces of a jigsaw puzzle together. Anyone who has given statements is also crucial for me you have done that. There may be several reasons why you have not given information; maybe you just do not know what to do. Others and I will support you all the way; you have my word on that. To have guidance through to the right channels and to obtain more information on how you can help, you can email me, stephen-

drummond44@hotmail.com or call 0415 804 962. Alternatively you may contact a personal close friend with compassion and understanding attached to her nature on bellabella41@hotmail or call Sue on 0401 046 805. Sue and her husband Steve were with me when Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life support was turned off at the Gold Coast Hospital and know firsthand the pain and tragedy with Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loss of life. Their loyalty and commitment to the truth is what helps me keep going through this nightmare of a situation. I respect and love them dearly for this and also my immediate family in New Zealand and Australia whose care and support have inspired me from the beginning. For family and friends, for closure and for the memory of my beautiful happy boy, let us have â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Truth for Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. There is a flag flying high for Jai in Heritage Park, where the funeral was, and a little shrine with his photo. It is a beautiful place to sit in remembrance of him, to remember all that he stood for: Peace! I thank the council for allowing it to stay for the moment. Many kids, adults, and I included appreciate it greatly. Remember; please feel free to contact me at any time. Thank you. Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disclaimer: The above acknowledgment is a personal letter to the community and cannot be used or taken out of context for legal purposes.

New exhibition considers the art of death and dying Nothing is more certain in life than death, yet it’s an experience that’s commonly hidden from our everyday reality. A new exhibition brings the mystery out into the light and provides an opportunity to celebrate the loss of our loved ones. In Mexico, November 1 is celebrated every year as the Day of the Innocents or the Day of the Little Angels. November 2 is the better known holiday, the Day of the Dead, when large groups of family and friends invade graveyards en masse, to celebrate and commune with their dear departed.

By comparison, western society often makes very little of death, hiding those we have lost away in eternally quiet cemeteries. Sadness and grief are individual pursuits largely dealt with behind closed doors, or in clinics where grief-ridden family and friends boost already frightening statistics concerning Australia’s depressed population. Byron identity Zenith Virago is part of a small committed group who are trying to change this aspect of our local culture. A celebrant of life’s most momentous circumstance, she has for the past 15

years, specialised in the fields of love and marriage, and death and dying. Since 2007, Virago has organised an annual event in Mullumbimby on the second Sunday in November, where people come together to honour their dead, in a bid to make death more familiar. Art is a really big part of that process she believes and has therefore become a major element of her celebration. The first hour of the event is an opportunity for people to make something as a memento of those that they miss – a prayer flag, clay heart or anything they want, and inscribe it with a message. Bree Delian from Retrospect Galleries Byron Bay agrees that art plays an important role in bridging the gap between life and ‘the other’. Concerned that a lot of the ritual surrounding death in other societies is lost in the West, she has decided it’s time for a reminder. ‘Although we are confronted by death and violence in the media every day, we have shunted it away in our society,’ says Bree. ‘In pagan societies there was a much stronger connection and a much more outward display of death, which was beautiful and beneficial to people. Looking at Mexico’s Day of the Dead, it’s so alien to us that people dress up, go to gravesites, take food

for their ancestors, sing them songs, take part in parades and festivities. But looking at other cultures and how they deal with death and give it purpose, can give life a new purpose too.’ This year, for the first time, Delian is organising an exhibition that gives artists the opportunity to explore the boundaries of religion, death, magic and mystery. With an exhibition featuring works by more than 20 established and emerging international, national and local artists, Delian hopes that The Day of the Dead will give people a glimpse into the realm of mystery, and make us rethink the importance of ritual.

Well known local artist James Guppy is among those who have agreed to be in the show, which he says deals with a theme he has been painting for decades. ‘Once we have a consciousness of death, we live our whole lives with it,’ says Guppy. ‘Very early on in my career, one of my earliest works was a painting about the death of my father. ‘These days I often allude to death in my work and sometimes quite explicitly, using symbols such as flowers, in an effort to imbue the mystery of our passing to this “amniotic other place” with a sense of poetic significance.’ Guppy has known Zenith Virago for years and says they

are both striving to give death meaning. ‘Zenith’s work is about introducing rituals that make it easier for the survivors to find sense in all of this,’ he says. ‘I’m just trying to find meaning for myself, and hopefully that will help others.’ Zenith Virago, James Guppy and artist Nic Plowman will share their experiences of art, death and modern ritual in a panel discussion on Halloween eve at Harvest Café, Newrybar, Saturday October 31. Limited tickets are available at $60 per person, which includes a two-course meal and drink on arrival. Bookings via Retrospect Galleries 6680 8825. The Day of the Dead exhibition opens 6pm-9pm on Sunday November 1, and runs until November 22. The exhibition features works by Northern Rivers’ artists James Guppy, Hilary Herrmann, Michelle Dawson, Anna Nordstrum, Cal Mackinnon, Cornelia Burless, and Alberto Sanchez, Brisbane’s Nic Plowman, Jan Van Djirk and Eileen Timbrell, Sydneysiders Andrew Hmnelinsky and Luke Taffe, Californians Harry the Hat and Kelsey Brookes, Tokyo based Aoife Tamura.

SurfAid at the frontline of disaster Greens MP Ian Cohen looks at the best way to support disaster survivors in our region. I write as a tsunami survivor of Sri Lanka in 2004. I was on the beach with my surfboard at Hikkaduwa when the waves struck with devastating results. Although I did not know it at the time, I was a part of a major Indian Ocean catastrophe. As the knowledge sank in I decided to stay for a month and assist in the relief campaign. It was both rewarding and harrowing, providing a firsthand working observation of the difficulties of delivering support to where it counts. Government bungling and corruption combined with the best and worst excesses of human behaviour in extreme situations were all rolled together in an exhausting month where I played a minor role in the relief efforts. With the help of a local non government organisation, Greens Sri Lanka, on the ground, I was able to elicit support from the Australian Embassy and private individuals.

Restoring dignity The goal was to rebuild the Sambodhi Public Centre for residents with mental and physical disabilities where some forty died in the initial disaster. The building was cleaned and refurbished in a matter of days, restoring some comfort and dignity to these most vulnerable survivors. I completed my time with the conviction that the most effective support is best delivered by small groups and in some cases individuals on the ground, utilising resources available in the local vicinity and avoiding bureaucratic blockages wherever possible. With the continuing ravages of war, tsunamis and earthquakes it is understandable that those in affluent nations suffer donation fatigue, becoming less willing to give. This is particularly apparent if there is any suspicion that money handed over with the best intentions in the world does not get to the appropriate destination, instead lining the

pockets of the unworthy. Such stories abound. Given the plight of the West Sumatra area, in what is possibly the most natural disaster prone region of the world, it is heartening to witness the international response and in particular the effectiveness of SurfAid International. This small NGO was delivering health and community development programs to the isolated Mentawai and Nias islands off the west coast of Sumatra prior to the 2004 tsunami and has operated in the region since 1999.

Having the edge After the Boxing Day tsunami, SurfAid teams were able to access remote regions delivering life saving aid to where it was most needed. Their knowledge, experience and connections to the local communities gave SurfAid the edge when it came to responding effectively to situations on the ground. Ironically Padang, which is their staging area, is now the centre of the current catastrophe. Once again SurfAid’s founder Dr Dave Jenkins and the SurfAid team are on the spot. The difference today is that the organisation has matured. It has learnt from its experiences

and it has built up a local and international reputation for high quality action. This extract from a recent situation report illustrates my point: ‘SurfAid was requested by UN-OCHA to undertake rapid assessment of two coastal sub-districts of Agam and we found 75,000 people without shelter,’ SurfAid Chief Operating Officer, Andrew Judge, said today from SurfAid Emergency Response headquarters in Padang. ‘Rain is forecast for the next week so SurfAid is urgently planning with other agencies to respond to this assessment. ‘SurfAid has loaded a boat, the Kuala Intan Baru2, with emergency supplies for Pasaman Barat. On board are 300 shelter kits, 700 tarpaulins, 300 construction kits and 500 hygiene packs, plus medical staff. The boat will depart from Muara Harbour Padang at 8am tomorrow (Wednesday 7 October) bound for Sasak Harbour in the north.’ These disasters elicit a massive response and it is just as well. This quake and the tsunami in Samoa won’t be the last or the worst so it is vital that support for organisations such as SurfAid is ongoing. Research shows that $1 spent

on emergency preparedness in time can save the equivalent of $10 donated in an emergency. This is especially pertinent in the West Sumatra region where the merging tectonic plates, the cause of the earthquakes, have not yet released the pressure which has been building up over many years. Another massive earthquake is predicted.

Geared up for action So, short of travelling to the region with money in hand, I feel confident that SurfAid is operating on our behalf in a most efficient and practical manner. Founded by compassionate surfers, SurfAid now employs a dedicated group of Indonesian workers. It has grown into a significant cooperative enterprise between Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand and the United States. Meanwhile, having miraculously survived the disaster in Padang, staff have already geared up for action on location at this critical time. These dedicated and tireless workers deserve our support.

ABC launches emergency warning system ABC Local Radio has officially launched the National Bushfire Emergency Warning system. The National Bushfire Emergency Warning system has been developed by Australian Emergency Services Agencies to warn the public about bushfire danger. It has been endorsed by the Emergency Ministerial Council and is the result of collaborations between approximately 50 emergency agencies, the Bureau of Meteorology and media organisations including the ABC. Under the new system, emergency service agencies www.echo.net.au

will use three levels of messaging to help communities make the right safety choices. A Bushfire Advice Message is the first level of warning. It means that agencies are dealing with a fire but there is no immediate danger. General information will be provided by emergency agencies. A Bushfire Watch and Act Message means conditions are changing and the fire has the potential to threaten property and lives. ABC Local Radio will broadcast Bushfire Watch and Act Messages regularly. A Bushfire Emergency

Warning Message is the highest level of alert, telling the public of immediate danger and a direct threat to life. This message will usually be preceded by the Standard Emergency Warning Signal (SEWS). The Standard Emergency Warning Signal has been used for many years in cyclone regions, but listeners in other states will rarely have heard it, and should familiarise themselves with the signal before the fire season starts. The first warning messages to be released under the new system were recently broadcast by ABC Local Radio Towns-

ville when a fire threatened homes in the community of Mt Fox. ‘The arrangements we had in place in Queensland worked well,’ says Ian Mannix, Manager Emergency Broadcasting and Community Development, ABC Local Radio. ‘Warnings issued by the Queensland Fire and Rescue Service were broadcast within a few minutes of them being written.’ A website outlining the new warnings system and featuring audio of the SEWS can be found at www.abc.net.au/ emergency.

connection. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen personalised in his friendship with Telek. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My parents are his parents in that classic way, my kids and his kids get on really well. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wonderful, and we know each other really well and I understand a lot more of his way of doing things. I have been initiated into his family. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I really love with my two daughters that from the time they were born up until now, George has been part of their lives, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a natural thing for them, so the concept of racism doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Bridieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical friendship with Telek has mirrored his passion for Papua. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;George has done a lot for Papua through his music. He presents a different perspective and for anyone who has spent a lot of time in PNG they know that they are very hospitable people with obligation through family and friendship. PNG is like most countries. There is poverty and crime, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as bad as what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made out here, what that perception overlooks is the warmth and the strength of friendship and obligation. George has done amazing things for tourism in PNG. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC; During their 21 years together, Bridie has also seen change and artistic growth in Telek. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In the beginning George was shy and not confident at all, now I have seen him taking workshops in California! I was sitting back thinkingâ&#x20AC;Ś wow! He has really grown into it!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an artistic growth that cuts both ways. Both artists have helped nourish the other.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;George has taught me a lot of stuff. Just the range of different styles of music that he does. He has played in rock bands as well in PNG and the band he had in the 80s sold records all around the country, even though he sang in Rimbau, because they had a sound that was really strong, but also with his string band, and with the records that he has done internationally and he has gone onto mix traditional music with contemporary sounds.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;PNG is like 800 countries within one country, so hard to talk about one PNG music. There are a few rhythms that have an Africanesque flavour and in some areas itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s non existent. I think common ground comes in the shared influences and we both listen to the Beatles and the Stones and there is that style of song writing, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to say how it works now, it all blends into a soup around us knowing each other I am quite familiar with Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tolai melodies.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

soAP boX Mandy Nolan

Some hippy chick back in the seventies turned up in Hawaii, opened her window, took in the breathtaking view of the mountains and then walked downstairs into the carpark. It inspired her to write ‘..don’t it always seem to go that you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone, They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.’ The Big Yellow Taxi is pulling up in Mullumbimby and dropping off the Fresh Food People. Woolies are soon to hit town. It is the evil of which we may not speak: Mullum’s Mordor. It must be stopped. If the hippies, activists and freak brigade of the North Coast of NSW can’t stop chain store cancer vaccinating their village against uniqueness and small business, then we’re done for. The corporate machine has eaten the dream. It’s a test. If they break us, the town of most resistance, then they break every little village in Australia. It’s chess. They needed some practice negotiating difficult free thinking, organic communities. Take out the

Queen. They needed to find a robust economically healthy village where local business flourished and the town centre was alive with chatter and diversity. So they took out Maleny. Sure they won’t shop there. Who cares? If the citizens of Maleny are philosophically euthanased in the fight against what some pithy progressives like to call ‘change’ (implying that those who don’t accept big business bastardising their town are in fact changechallenged. You want change, buddy? Then give your BMW to St Vincent De Paul and start riding a bike. (Change comes from within, not from your wallet), then what hope do we have here in Mullumbimby? Once Woolies take Mullum it’s checkmate on regional communities, and the board falls. We stinky hairy people of the revolution must defend our honour. We must rise up from our middle class slumber, prise ourselves from the plasma, and defend our precious pawns: the ordinary people who live in Mullumbimby. Franchise is the business equivalent of the chicken pox blanket for the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker, the grocer, the chemist and the alchemist. Woolies is the camphor laurel by our stream. Mullumbimby is all that is left of the hippy dream. It is a remarkable picture of diversity and community, a rich and thriving culture that is a reminder of the power of the village. Mullum has retained her status as a country town,

Big Yellow Taxi albeit a little Newtown… with dairy farmers. Drive to Mullum on any given day, and this is what you’ll find: buskers on sitar, buskers on guitar, kids from Shearwater out-busking them all, there’ll be a shirtless bloke in a kilt on his mobile, a nice neat Nanna off to the doctor, a seedpod of single mums outside Santos sharing tips on crystal deodorant, there’s workmen, men who have never worked, emo teenagers skipping school and eating chips on the pavement, the crazy walking guy bumming a dollar and a cigarette, there’s an elusively private local lawyer walking his dog, there’s a political activist with hair like Jesus scowling into his coffee, there’s the Mayor with a bunch of papers having a meeting in a local cafe, there’s some dishevelled rock star skulking the street but no one really knows who he is, there’s vegetarians in the butcher shop buying bones for their dogs and carnivores in the health food shop buying a colon cleansing kit, there’s beautifully dressed women next to badly dressed women, there’s the whitened teeth brigade holding court

with the toothless, there’s a bloke from the local paper taking a photo outside the fish shop, there’s a handful of hard core drinkers at the window of the local pub, there’s a whale activist in the chemist waiting for his prescription, there’s the guy in a wheelchair with emphysema smoking a durry, there’s a farmer in his ute reading Shooter’s Monthly, there’s a bigmouthed comedian without a licence pushing a pram and lugging shopping, there’s people talking everywhere, gathered in groups, dotted in shops, music playing, noise everywhere. Dogs are tied to every post and not just one dog. Lots of dogs. Small fluffy designer dogs tied next to cattledogs, next to collies, next to mongrels. There’s dog shit on the street, but we just walk over it. This is our community. A vibrant flawed gloriously fucked-up cacophony of community. Mullumbimby needs to be heritage listed. Supermarkets are soul destroyers. It’s time to defend our town. It reminds me of one of the saddest and most telling lines from one of my favourite films, Withnail & I when one of the characters bemoans the end of the the utopian wonderland that was the 60s with ‘They’re selling hippie wigs in Woolworths, Man.’ So drop your firestick, stop tie-dying those rainbow shirts and put down your lentils, it’s time to make a stand… even a frigging headstand would do.

The musical genres of the women of the Mullum Music Festival are as diverse as the women themselves. In the Indie corner there’s Simone White (USA) – a favourite with critics from Mojo to the Daily Mail, the lauded and loved Jen Cloher & The Endless Sea, one of the country’s hottest acts since the release of Hidden Hands. Mama Kin brings roots to the mix by conjuring a heady sense of New Orleans underground with a ray and literal dose of rhythm and blues. Lucie Thorne flies the flag for Folk Pop Rock. She’s been called Australia’s PJ Harvey. Washington presents something remarkable from the avant garde with her signature showtunes and spinning tales. Influenced by The Velvet Underground, Washington embodies the dark genius of Lou Reed. Georgia Potter is a genre blender, experimental and adventurous, a young wordsmith delivering fresh folk, philosophy and soul in a sound that shifts from hard hitting to mellow. There’s Melbourne based pop/ acoustic Princess Coby Grant and festival find is Byron Shire’s Domini Forster, a Shearwater student who’s found herself gracing the airwaves of Triple J and the stages of Bluesfest. Jazz and Soul get a look in with the much loved Jo Jo Smith – a one time local who won our hearts over a decade ago. After her recent tour through Germany Jo Jo was described as the Joni Mitchell of R&B. Classically trained Leah Flanagan and her band

rise to the fore with their own blend of folky acoustic Jazz. Loren Kate takes up the acoustic folk mantle with her delicate storytelling, mixing finger picking and strumming, delivering meaningful songs with humour and a candid unguardedness. Ange Taats represents folk and is the winner of the 2008 Lis Johnston Award for Vocal excellence at the National Folk Festival. And finally it’s goodbye to the gritty city with the girls bringing in swinging alt country. The Mullum Music Festival welcomes Sal Kimber & The Rollin Wheel, Kell Stoner and Clelia Adams, the Mullumbimby cowgirl with a penchant for western swing, honky tonk and rockabilly. Mulllumbimby Music Festival November 26 – 29. Tickets are available now.www. mullummusicfestival.com

Blue Buddhas The Blue Hulas, Byron Bay’s original Hawaiian style band, bring their cruisy island sound to the Buddha Bar on Friday. Featuring Australian Ukulele Virtuoso Azo Bell on lead ukulele and slide guitar and the incomparable voice of Benhur on lead vocals and ukulele. Backed by the pulsing sensations of the Blue Hulas’ rhythm section, showcasing Adi Noersadi on bass/guitar, Jamie Pattugalan on drums, and Dan Roman on uke, the band will make you sway to the rhythm of the palms as they gently groove you into ecstacy with traditional island songs.

Broadfoot at The Beach Broadfoot are at it again this week Thursday at the Beach Hotel. The band have been feverishly working on a collection of their songs to put onto CD for your listening pleasure – songs that will be played with much vigour and bountiful vim. Starting at 9pm. Intertwining elements of blues/ rock, country and funkiness, with plenty of improvisation thrown in, the band shares the lead singing between all four members with vocal harmonies a feature of the sound. Be sure to catch the ‘Crazy Crab’ in full sidewinding action as he sports

Very Unique In the Kew Local singer/songwriter Greg Kew plays the Rails on Monday. His EP, Peace for Me, has been getting airplay on Bay FM, where he recently appeared live to discuss his music and play some new material. Greg’s last gig at The Rails was a raging success!

The great thing about the industry today is the fact that you can be based anywhere – the internet has facilitated that. It’s a great place to live and produce; a very creative area for musicians and artists. It’s a starkly different environment from the London boroughs in which dubstep originated – the UK’s got quite a bleak vibe which is far removed from the sun and surf of Australia!’ Get 3rdeye’s music at myspace. com/tryploptix

dubstep around 2005/06 I have been hooked on its sound and began experimenting with producing my own strain of it a couple of years ago. As well as slaving away on some EPs I have been collaborating with Safire, an awesome drum and bass producer from Melbourne. I’ve got a few other collaborations on the go too, and I just finished a remix for The Bird which is sounding weighty. Although I play a lot of heavy tunes out I’m more interested in producing deeper dubstep – there’s also a techno influence creeping more and more into my music, which stems from my interest in Detroit and dub techno sounds.’

STARS WITH LILITH

LIBRA: This week your intuition, spirit wisdom, higher self or whatever you like to call it has important information for you. Sure you’re busy with a hundred and one different kinds of fun, but at some time turn off the mobile, iPod and the news and tune into numero uno…

CAPRICORN: This week’s socially aerobic climate is positively seething with excellent contacts, while its challenge is to balance the ideal with the reality, the impulse and its fulfillment, the way things could be and the way they are, ie. the hundred and one contradictions of daily existence.

LEO: Forget critics raining on your parade – this week’s Leo moon kickoff brings a reassuring upswing in creative inspiration. If the wow factor’s been a bit lacking lately take heart, because there’s plenty of verve and joie de vivre in this week’s wheelings and dealings.

SCORPIO: Don’t like living with unanswered questions? The universe has been busy probing your depths and this week Mercury brings answers. Possibly not what you expected, or even wanted, but they’ll give you more control over your life by clarifying a decision whether to commit or quit.

VIRGO: Stop criticizing yourself! Do you even realize you’re doing it? Be as tender and understanding to yourself as you are with others. Appreciate the beautiful creature you are. Acknowledge those meticulous Mercurian gifts: your elegant aesthetics, your sense of service and finesse.

SAGITTARIUS: As Jupiter your ruling planet heads direct in the sign of unexpected benefits and new moves, this week could bring a fresh slant on a marketing presentation or business strategy, highlighting what needs to be repackaged, reworked or just resigned to the bin.

AQUARIUS: While Jupiter direct in your sign attracts support and applause for your adventurous, cutting-edge inspirations, it’s in your best interests to be diplomatic rather than blunt because this week won’t appreciate your signature straightforwardness. Awkward, inconvenient truths need tactful packaging.

ARIES: With the planetary emphasis in your partnership zone don’t even think about behaviour that causes you or anyone else unnecessary stress. Accept that other people’s agendas are their own business, take care of your health and this week you’ll be looking good just like an Aries should.

CANCER: This week may need rapid, even radical, adjustments to the way you do things: sharing instead of hoarding, opening up when you’re feeling at your most vulnerable rather than snapping the crab shell shut. Insisting on your way could cause clashes – go for cooperation and collaboration.

GEMINI: Stay detached from emotional dramas, tread gently around other people’s sensitive areas and a lucrative business deal could be cemented this week. While celestial cha-cha steps suggest a temptation to let style overwhelm substance, actions and results should speak louder than charisma.

Both Carlsen’s and Fischer’s tournament wins were achieved within a couple of months of their 19th birthday and both tournaments signalled clearly that here was a future World Champion. It took Fischer another 10 years to ascend the chess summit, obstructed by Cold War chicanery and by Fischer’s propensity to boycott events if conditions did not meet his high standards. After his overwhelming victory at the Pearl Spring tournament in Nanjing – a performance which included victories over every rival, including world

(Without the pawns White could not force checkmate.)

Vampires can survive in cold climates, too, at least according to the Swedish horror comedy Frostbite (SBS2, Saturday, 9.40pm). If the Swedes can survive ABBA and Volvos, then the mutant dead are a doddle. 3. The ever-disturbed Rupert Penry-Jones runs into a beastly spot of bother with a biplane in the latest remake of the classic thriller The 39 Steps (ABC1, Sunday, 8.30pm), based on the excellent espionage novel by John Buchan and first brought to the big screen by Hitch in 1935.

Julie and Julia What are the three secret ingredients of French cuisine? Butter, butter and butter. The old joke is given a new lease of life in Nora Ephronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at times hilarious new film, which is both biopic (of the famous American food writer Julia Child) and adaptation (of Julie Powellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blog/book). It opens with Julia (Meryl Streep) and husband Paul (Stanley Tucci), a member of the US consular corps, establishing themselves in Paris after the War. Seeking fulfillment, Julia attends Cordon Bleu cooking classes and exceeds her and everybody elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expectations, culminating in

the publication of her major opus. Streep is stupendous in the part, exhibiting a rare genius for bunging it on â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and then some, as she makes TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hyacinth Bucket appear mousey â&#x20AC;&#x201C; without ever giving the impression that she is over-acting. The restrained but immensely warm Tucci is brilliant opposite her â&#x20AC;&#x201C; watch how they stop the show with the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reaction to news of Juliaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pregnancy. Across the Atlantic, fifty-odd years later, Julie (Amy Adams) is nowhere near as rambunctious but, in her own weedy way, equally needful of having a profile. Ephron is making a serious comment here on our very contemporary addiction to vicarious experience. Feeling powerless in her job at a call centre and belittled by her friendsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mega Manhattan achievements, Julie sets herself the task of working her way through her idol Childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s encyclopaedic volume of recipes. She records her progress on a blog, living

A hasty history, narrated by thirteen year-old Cassie (Dakota Fanning), informs us that scientists have been experimenting on people with psychic powers since WWII, with the aim of creating an army of invincible agents. A non-lethal drug has been concocted that will enhance their performance, but it might fall into the wrong hands. The serum is somewhere in Hong Kong and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a scramble to locate it. Cassieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gift is seeing the future and she has buddied-up with Nick (Chris Evans), whose weird kinetic talent allows him to move revolvers through the air until theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re floating next

to their targetsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; heads. Nickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he gets his face punched frequently and is thrown down stairs more than youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d want, but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s handsome and simple minded, with a canine loyalty to Cassie and an unshakeable belief in the right cause. Cassie flounces around in the skimpiest of skirts and at one point skulls a quart of liquor, but her juvenile sexuality, like Bill Hensonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s subjects, is never an issue (ha!). Cassie and Nick are tracked by â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;smellersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, nasty dudes with super olfactory senses, though how they held a scent through the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overwhelming aroma of chooks cooking in pork fat is beyond me. There are also a couple of Chinese brothers who, with eyes-popping and neck veins throbbing, let rip with an â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;aaaaaaarrrrgghhh!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; that smashes everything in sight and causes its target to keel over with bleeding ears. I and the schoolboys at the back nearly cacked ourselves, they were that funny. So was the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Shadowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, a fellow who looks disarmingly like Basil Fawlty. But the really mean brute is Carver (Djimon Hounsou), a representative of Division, the government organisation from which Cassie and Nick are AWOL (yes, the government is untrustworthy again). Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m more familiar with Hounsou playing the sympathetic character (he was Rustyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s noble African mate in Gladiator, and the poor bugger died of AIDS in the matchless In America), but here he possesses the sinister skill of controlling other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thoughts (the camera closes in and you see his eyes go completely black â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dead giveaway). Saturated colour, shiny metallic night shots, a frenetic edit and beautiful photography of Hong Kong make for never a dull moment. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not absolutely positive that I know how and why the syringe with the precious potion was turned into a bottle

tries to make amends, and starts by taking a promising young comic (Seth Rogen) under his wing. George also wants to reconnect with the exgirlfriend (Leslie Mann) whose heart he broke years ago. As with all of Apatowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s films, the pop culture references are absolutely pitch perfect, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the serious bits that the film also explores that sets Funny People apart. Apatow tackles the big issues here (love, death, friendship, sex). The film has a beguiling candour and reflectiveness which is new for both Apatow and Sandler, it achieves a maturity, and offers an intriguingly bittersweet experience. ~ Lounge Cinema

her life through somebody elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I love you, Juliaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; she says to a poster of the person she has never met, and you know she really means it). The incessant blogging makes Julie self-absorbed, obsessed with her own celebrity and unaware of the deleterious effect it is having on her relationship with partner Eric. There is also the murky question of appropriation and Ephron deals with it most unexpectedly when, near the end, Julieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s egocentric view of what she has done is skewered by an unwelcome phone call. Initially, I wanted to spend more time with Julia in France, but was gradually caught up in Julieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manic ambition. Vegetarians (or humanitarians) wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find amusing the wriggling lobsters being tossed into boiling water, but Ephron must be respected for at least not dodging the issue (we are spared the amputated frogs). As has been observed elsewhere, a soufflĂŠ will not rise twice and the bon vivant mood is unable to be sustained, but this is a thoughtful, breezy and most delectable movie, with an aftertaste of lingering tartness. ~ John Campbell

I met Mick and Thelma at the Big Scrub Day in Bangalow. The program had promised bush tucker demonstrations so naturally their marquee drew me effortlessly there â&#x20AC;&#x201C; only to discover that due to some technical difficulties, the cooking demonstrations were not going ahead. Instead there was Thelma, calm and undeterred, loading up crostini with ingredients I learned included smoked wallaby; Mick beside her had made the wattleseed damper for the crostini. I crunched enjoyably into these new tastes as more and more people drifted over to join us. Mick was telling me about the country he came from, a place called Cubawee west of Lismore where as a boy he would feast on wild pawpaw; he has never seen them since. Mick and Thelma made me feel as if they had always known me, all within the space of five minutes. Bunjalung people, they have been running their cafe in South Lismore since 2004. Thelma told me that it had started out as a space to showcase local indigenous art and they would serve up simple meals; the focus soon shifted from the art to the food as visitors discovered what was coming out of the kitchen. Focus is a word Thelma used several times when I made the trip out to GunnaWannaBe. On a hot dusty morning she sat down with me under a coolly rotating fan, iced water beading our glass tumblers. Still a little early for lunchers, she and Mick had been prepping-up in the open kitchen at the back of the cafe. Burnt orange walls support artwork and mirrors; simply set tables group neatly.

I had had a stressful drive from Byron Bay stuck behind a truck ambling along at 50 kms for most of the winding highway; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Going To San Franciscoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sounded softly from the radio as I walked in and that nostalgia coupled with the cautious pleasure my flustered arrival provoked made me nearly burst into tears. Thelma â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or Thel as Mick calls her â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was listing all the things they offer from what is so much more than a cafe. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It always makes it hard to say exactly what it is weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re focusing onâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, she said. Apart from the food and the art, GunnaWannaBe offers a learning and resource centre, providing Aboriginal cultural education to schools from preschool to Year 7. The concept behind it, Thelma told me, was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;to promote our culture through the art and the food. We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want just

Thelma). They are both part of a Bush Foods Sensation group, a government-run initiative for which they conduct workshops. Just another hat they wear. Meanwhile, people arrive for lunch. The small menu offers Barramundi with Wild Bush Spices and Lemon Myrtle Sauce; Seared Roo Rump with Akudjura Sauce; Smoked Wallaby with Rainforest Mint. Mick is turning slender slices of wallaby in a pan, having just plated up some barramundi with a scattering of spices. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for a young couple and smells fantastic. Thelma tosses a watercress salad; they weave around each other as I wave goodbye.

Dey is a clean sweep in NS14s

It’s game on for Good Sports

Duncan Dey going ‘downhill’ during a race in Adelaide last Christmas.

Good Sports project office present Jeff and Zac Thomas of Mullumbimby Giants Rugby League Club a Good Sports certificate of Level 1 accreditation. Photo Tree Faerie.

Australia’s own NS14 class of dinghy held their Queensland State Championship regatta on the first weekend in October 2009, at Darling Point on Brisbane’s Moreton Bay. It’s no long weekend for Queenslanders so the five races were held over two days: two races on Saturday in a shifty north to west wind and three races on Sunday in a steady sou’easter that rose from 10 to 15 knots during the afternoon. Only two New South Wobblers attended, both from the Richmond River club at Ballina. They took out 1st and 2nd places in the series ahead of 6 other competitors. Fleet numbers were down on previous years, probably due to preceding forecasts of bad weather.

On Saturday, each windshift to the west was heralded by a gust and each swing north by a lull. Duncan Dey of Main Arm skippered his highly-prized NS14 in a frenzy to first place in all five races but reported on the Monday after that rigor mortis had set into his legs, after keeping the boat flat for the 5 hours of racing. NS14 sailing includes hanging over the side of the 64kg boat to balance it against the pressure of wind in the sails – there is no keel. Duncan’s crew, 9-year-old Zac Heuchmer of Ballina, proved himself well up to the task too. Chris Larsen and crew Darcy Woodward from the Richmond River club took out second place in their boat ‘Don’t Panic’. They finished the series

on level points with Plan B but pipped them on a count-back: tied results are split according to who beat whom more often out of the 5 race results. Like the club in Ballina, Darling Point is blessed with simple pleasures like watching the full moon rise over a dusty Moreton Bay – very impressive from the clubhouse verandah. Sailing is a great sport: no fuel, hard to get hot or injured. The website www.ns14.org describes these boats but other classes also sail at Richmond River club, visit www.richmondriver.yachting.org.au. Whether you’re an athlete looking for a new skill, or a sailor wanting to return to an old one, sailing is the go. Contact Duncan on 6684 5440 for more info.

Good Sports is a program that supports community sporting clubs to be safe, healthy and family friendly environments. Alcohol and sport are historically closely linked in Australia. Most major sporting competitions and teams promote and advertise alcohol consumption and many sports clubs have a tradition of heavy drinking. A large number of clubs depend on revenue from alcohol to finance club activities. The Good Sports program is an initiative of the Australian Drug Foundation (ADF) to develop safer and healthier communities. The program helps sporting clubs manage alcohol responsibly and reduce alcohol related problems such as binge and underage drinking.

Good Sports is recognised in the community health sector for its extensive research. The program is evidence-based and evaluation continues on an ongoing basis. Displaying the Good Sports logo sends an important message to club members and the community. It confirms that the club promotes a responsible attitude towards alcohol and that it provides a safe environment for players, members, families and supporters. The key strategy of Good Sports is the accreditation program. The three level accreditation criteria consist of a set of alcohol management standards for clubs that serve and consume alcohol. Clubs are required to move through the levels in a set

amount of time (maximum 5 years), maintaining all the criteria from previous levels as they do so. One of the key benefits to clubs of registering in the free program is the support that they receive in changing culture. A Good Sports Project Officer assists club committee members through the entire process. Joanna Zielinska is the newly appointed local project officer for Good Sports for the Tweed -Byron region. ‘As we are just starting out in this region I am aiming to get as many clubs as I can to be accredited with Good Sports,’ says Joanna. ‘Raising community awareness is a priority at this time.’ For more information visit: www.goodsports.com.au.

Rugby Sevens turn twenty Shand second semi

In last year’s Rugby Sevens, after almost 100 matches the final came down to these two squads, when winger from the winning team Uprising Beach Resort from Fiji, above, heads for the try line with New Zealand’s Bulldawgz in hot pursuit. Photo Tree Faerie.

Byron Bay Rugby 7s celebrates 20 years of presenting the best, the fastest, the most ferocious and the most entertaining rugby in Australia. This tournament is the only rugby 7s, where club level players can test their rugby metal and drinking skills against international, state and first division teams. This year’s event promises to be the best 7s ever with teams travelling from New Zealand, Fiji, Papua New Guinea, and teams of all levels from across Australia descending of Byron Bay for this not to be missed family-fun, not to mention free event. The 20th year will see

Michael O’Connor looking for future Australian 7s representatives which can be your chance to shine and play for our country. There will be many reunions in the 20th year, with Southern Cross University , Sloths Rugby and Macarthur Old Boys representing 10 or more years of 7s in the Bay. Byron Bay’s own Mick ‘Wombat’ Leece will be taking the field as the only player to have played in every tournament, an accolade to add to his 500 senior games for the Bay. Byron 7s is so popular that in the past over 80 teams have nominated for inclusion, but as there is room for only 32 men’s

teams and 16 women’s teams many teams miss out. Byron’s 7s are the only rugby 7s where you do not pay an entrance fee. The event is what true grass roots rugby is all about: good games, and a fantastic bunch of men and women all having fun both on and off the field. This is the event that rugby 7s players and spectators wait all year for and even people whose sport of choice is not ruby 7s, will find the event entertaining, you are gauranteed not to be disappointed. Matches are played at the rec grounds starting at 9am on both Saturday and Sunday, the final at 1pm on Sunday.

Mullum Giants under 12s win final A great day was held recently at the Mullumbimby Football Fields, where the Mullumbimby Giants Junior Rugby League hosted the Group 18 Junior Grand Final. Spectators were met with very tough, surprising hard fought games of rugby league and many talented individuals showcased their unique ability. The sun was shining and a great day of Junior Rugby League was held. The highlight of the event was when the McDonalds Meats U12s who won their game in a spectacular show of determination and hunger for the victory they were to receive. Playing as a team, they put pressure on the opposition, who could not make it across the line, as the juniors defence was inpenetrable, they won 6-0 over previously undefeated Tweed Coast Raiders side. Jack De Costa won Group 18 Man Of Match. Every boy in the team played well, there are too many to mention but the supporters were enthusiastic in congratulating the team, the crowd cheered the boys on and big smiles and many happy parents ran onto the field to celebrate with the www.echo.net.au

The bloodshot eyes of the cricketing world were fixatedly focused on Lomath Oval on Sunday as the second semi final of the Nick Shand Memorial cricket series saw underdogs the Geckos taking on minor premiers the Left Bankers, a team of talented misfits held together by Russell’s persuasiveness and Snakebite’s coffee. Russell won the toss and with keen bats hovering around him as if he was a bunch of over ripe bananas, asked the Geckos to bowl. Russ and Bruce were first in and were soon scoring as regularly as rock stars with private physicians. Like Snow White, Bruce showed a liking for anything short, Sean got sunburned tonsils following the arc of some blazing hook shots, but then replied by having Russ caught at cover. Zac came in and punched a couple of balls through the off side, but was short of his ground when going for a third run, another victim of the treacle like consistency of the famous Lomath Oval turf. The Geckos, like Queensland petrol heads, rallied. Mick snared a caught and bowled, and Peter Wynne Moylan removed Russell for 18 and held a return catch as well. Nick dug in like an echidna on a termite nest at one end, and when joined by Greg ‘Lichi’, the runs piled up like unsolicited mail in a letterbox. Nick and Greg’s retirement brought in keen eyed Stewie and saw the return of Bruce who monstered the bowling without mercy, taking his personal tally to 53 and the team to a series high 182. The Geckos, like sewerage workers, had a big job in front of them, and to make matters worse mist and gloom began to close in from all directions. Glenn and Geri did well to see off the opening overs as new ball bowlers Russ and Nick probed in the murk like angry dentists.

boys on their victory. Other highlights of the day were the Bilambil U13s where Nicci Burns scored 5 tries. Entertaining U14 Tweed Coast Raiders came from well down

to beat Tugun Seahawks by 1 point. Finally in the U16s the upset of the day saw Cudgen Hornets win their first Premiership over a star studded Bilambil side.

Zac kept up the pressure and was rewarded with the first scalp, and Guy and Greg-O soon had one apiece. The match became a grim battle as the Bankers pressed for victory and Geckos Sean, Adeha and Mick held out as the weather deteriorated. When rain stopped play for a second time the stumps were pulled up with the Geckos needing 93 from 12 overs with six wickets in hand. The invisible rulebook was gravely consulted, and it clearly (albeit invisibly) stated that the match was to be replayed in two weeks time.

Circle Satsang with Vartman Byron Bay October 2009 â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Believe it is time to evolve Satsang past the model of one person sitting at the front supplying the answers. Just the setup can be inherently disempowering. A recent shift in Consciousness gives us the possibility to access the wisdom of the circle and create a living vortex of Divine intelligence that can move us quickly from understanding... to feeling... and even seeing the world as it actually is. The Self-Recognition of seeing the world without limited perception is indescribably beautiful and can radically cut all mind suffering. I would love to explore that with You.â&#x20AC;?

Our special correspondent caught this image in her iPhone of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;wonderfully proud streaker who did a Great Northern to roundabout lap on Jonson Street. iPhone cameras arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very fast and I only just caught the, er, tail end of him, but he was truly the most splendidly elegant and gracious streaker Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had the pleasure of being witness to. His hours in the gym had paid off and he provided a joyous little interlude on an otherwise fairly ordinary Sunday.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Former councillors Fast Buck$ and Jenny Coman were among those who sang â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Happy Birthdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to Mayor Jan Barham at last Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public access session. The mayor responded by saying â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think of a nicer thing to be doing on my birthday.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sure. â&#x2013;  â&#x2013;  â&#x2013;  â&#x2013;

Some councillors are getting jack of the amount of work that gets dumped on them in one agenda by Council staff. Mind you, it might help if they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t generate more work through notices of motion. â&#x2013;  â&#x2013;  â&#x2013;  â&#x2013; 

But it is a typical bureaucratic trick; keep the elected reps snowed under with paperwork. The same applies to developers snowing residents with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;environmental assessmentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of major developments. Consultants are commissioned to write reports which overtake War And Peace in length. â&#x2013;  â&#x2013;  â&#x2013;  â&#x2013; 

Our apologies to Chris Harris for accidentally calling him â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Chris Morrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in the caption under his beautiful photo of the

pelicans on page 7 last week. You can see Chrisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s photo again in the Simple Pleasures calendar available from the Brunswick Heads visitor centre or newsagency. â&#x2013;  â&#x2013;  â&#x2013;  â&#x2013;
