NSW govt targets Coorabell celebrates centenary coastal hot spots The NSW government announced last Monday it will introduce new measures for areas affected by coastal erosion to clarify the rights of councils and property owners and minimise the risk to taxpayers. Belongil is expected to be among the 19 coastal ‘hot spots’ targeted. ‘These issues should be dealt with locally but recent disputes have shown that intervention was required to achieve a practical result,’ said Premier Nathan Rees in a press release. ‘I asked the Ministers for the Environment and Planning to come up with a balance between protecting property rights and the environment. ‘A detailed package will be released this year including legislation. Our approach will ensure key councils have plans in place and existing home owners can act to protect their properties and share the financial responsibilities – subject to stringent environmental impact assessments.

‘New tools’ ‘These are complex issues with much to learn but we will work with councils and local communities to protect our precious coast.’ Minister for Climate Change and the Environment John Robertson said the government had identified the need to plan for rising sea levels and action was underway. ‘We already have the NSW Coastal Policy and Coastal Protection Act but it’s clear that new tools and approaches are required. ‘Some councils have been working on their coastal management plans for over a decade when action is required now. Delays are no longer an option when storms are becoming more destructive and the CSIRO tells us sea levels will rise by up to 40cm by 2050.’ The deputy director of the Department of Environment and Climate Change, Simon Smith, rejected the notion that beachfront

property owners would be allowed to build barriers at the expense of public beaches. ‘It’s not just, “I’ll build a wall, it’ll protect me and I’ll be right mate”,’ the Sydney Morning Herald quoted him as saying. Owners will have to ensure the works did not transfer the erosion from one spot to another. The package of new measures will include a code of practice for temporary protections to threatened properties; require councils to prepare emergency storm plans for ‘hot spot’ areas; create council and ministerial powers to stop unapproved works; provide mechanisms for cost sharing; and allow property owners to apply to fully fund their own works where environmentally feasible and sustainable.

New powers Mr Robertson said, ‘New powers will enable councils or the Minister to issue an order to stop unapproved action likely to result in significant beach erosion. This will be backed by increased penalties. ‘Protecting homes and the environment by managing coastal erosion is one of our clear priorities.’ The impact the hot spot legislation will have on Council’s draft Coastal Zone Management Plan (CZMP) is uncertain. The CZMP goes on public exhibition from Thursday until December 22. Mayor Jan Barham said the draft CZMP proposes a precautionary approach to the management of the coastline and is the result of many years of research and development. ‘The draft CZMP takes into account 20 years of planning for managing coastal hazards and future climate change risks,’ she said in a press release. ‘It proposes an adaptation model that considers the significant management issues associated with how locals

Put on your dancing shoes (or better still, your button-up boots) and come to Coorabell Hall next Saturday October 24 to celebrate the hall’s Centenary. Sporting a resplendent new exterior paint job and new odourless plumbing, the hall is tizzying itself up to host a day and an evening of familyfriendly activities – including some

good ol’ fashioned country dancing (Yee-Haw!). When the hall opened a century ago, the local lads and lasses danced until dawn according to The Mullumbimby Star. All-night gigs were popular way back then, and locals can recall how the young cockies – after a night of drinking, dancing and carousing – would be poured onto

their horses, who all knew their way home, to finally slide off in a heap in their own bales to begin the milking. These days we are all restrained to the ‘godly’ hour of midnight. Steve Wedd, whose forebears were probably dancing at the opening night, has been giving old time dancing lessons for free on Sunday mornings continued on page 7

Minister approves $70m power upgrade

Minister for Energy John Robertson last week announced planning approval for a $70 million upgrade of the Lismore to Mullumbimby electricity network. Mr Robertson said the proposal, which will generate 30 construction jobs, involves upgrading the transmission network from Lismore to Mullumbimby via Alstonville, Ballina, Lennox Head, Suffolk Park, Byron Bay and Brunswick Heads from 66 kilovolts (kV) to 132kV. ‘The five-year project includes continued on page 2 construction of a new zone substa-

<echowebsection=Local News>

tion at Suffolk Park and concept approval for another new substation near Brunswick Heads,’ Mr Robertson said. ‘Existing zone substations at Mullumbimby, Lennox Head, Ballina and Lismore and some major powerlines will also be upgraded to increase power supply capacity. ‘Detailed environmental and social studies, which included extensive consultation with landowners and other interested community members, have been carried out and feedback from local communities has

helped Country Energy identify the best options.’ Project approval has been granted for the first of two stages, which includes all components of the upgrade other than the Brunswick Heads substation and a 132kV line from the Mullumbimby to Ewingsdale line to Brunswick Heads substation. Country Energy will have to undertake further detailed assessment on the second stage and receive project approval from the Minister for Planning before construction.

Prior to reaching this stage, Byron Shire Council has also completed a Coastline Values Study (2000), Coastline Hazard Definition Study (2000) and the Coastline Management Study (2004). Copies of these documents can be found on Council’s website www. byron.nsw.gov.au/coastal-andestuary-management.

Denial of liability Cr Barham took issue with our front page comment last week that Council’s position on its Jonson Street works ‘borders on an admission of liability’. She said, ‘There has been no admission of liability regarding the Jonson Street works and in fact, there has been a constant denial of any liability arising from the Jonson Street works. ‘The matter was subject to a Council decision as evidenced by resolution 06-721: ‘1. That Council confirm its commitment to the coastal erosion impact lines as identified in DCP 2002 Part J as a basis for the Coastline Management Plan (CMP) in the interim until such time as the 2007 IPCC report and the State Government and CSIRO study on the impacts of climate change and adaptation models of the NSW Coastline. ‘2. That Council commit to protecting the Byron Bay Town Centre through retention of the approved works and identify as an action in the plan to investigate the potential for modification to reduce the impact on Belongil Beach. ‘3. That Council determine that the CMP be developed as a document that identifies strategies and actions that are required to implement planned retreat. ‘4. That the project brief (#631512) be circulated to the Committee members to seek input to allow for a revised project brief to be reported back to Council at the 5 December meeting. (Barham/Lazarus)’.

Byron Shire Mayor Jan Barham, second from front, joins breast cancers survivors Marian Vander Kroon, Judy Sunshine, Barb Pinter, Helen Parker and Lindy McCollum with some of the Pink Silhouettes planted in Railway Park on Saturday as part of breast cancer awareness week. Barb Pinter founded the Byron breast cancer support group in 2004 when she realised how isolated from others going through the same traumatic diagnosis and treatment she felt. Barb knew the network of women could be a very powerful help for women at a very difficult time.

Mayor Barham said, ‘Barb is on of this shire’s quiet achievers she doesn’t seek recognition she just gets on with it and we love her.’ The group meets every third Wednesday of the month at the Byron Senior Citizens hall in Marvel Street from 12.30pm to 2.30pm. This week is pamper day for any cancer survivors who wish to come along. The Mural of Survivorship is an art competition put on by Westmead Breast Cancer Institute which shows how the artworks and stories of breast cancer survivors and their loved ones can assist in their healing journeys. Barbara

Pinter and her 17 year old son Daniel have submitted entries into the competition. The Byron Bay Breast Cancer Support Group is calling on members of the community to view the artworks on www. muralofsurvivorship.com.au and to cast your vote for the people’s choice award. Voting closes 5pm on November 25. The group is also supporting an extended fundraiser for Barb and her family, initiated at the Byron Gym, by local artist Alexandra Spyratos and donations can be posted to B Pinter, PO Box 176, Byron Bay 2481.

$300,000 for north coast tourism The Northern Rivers and Mid North Coast regions will receive $300,000 from the NSW Government to boost the local tourism industry. Minister for Tourism Jodi McKay, who was in Byron Bay on Monday for the inaugural Northern Rivers Tourism Symposium, said the new funds would support North Coast tourism operators affected by the region’s recent floods. ‘We will be supporting the region through a print, television and online campaign tar-

geting families in South East Queensland and Sydney and encouraging them to travel between December and February next year,’ Ms McKay said in a press release. Ms McKay said the campaign will kick off at the end of next month and run through until the end of February 2010. ‘Last year, the Northern Rivers Region had more than 4.9 million domestic and international visitors, who stayed 8.3 million nights, injecting almost $1.3 billion

into the region’s economy.’ Ms McKay said the funding was in addition to the support given for Northern Rivers Tourism’s new ‘Rivers of Life’ campaign, which received $88,000 under the NSW government’s Regional Partnership Funding Program.

Phase three of the development of the CLIC Business Village in Mullumbimby is underway. The development has been undertaken and sustained by Byron Regional Community College (BRCC, otherwise known as ACE Byron) and Nortec Employment and Training Ltd with the aid of Federal Government grants (part of the Education Rescue Package) and fire safety contributions from Byron Shire Council. A new cash injection from Council will assist this most recent phase. Paul Jameson, Treasurer of CLIC and Business Incubator Manager for Nortec, told The Echo, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We took over a semi derelict building several years ago and to date the community has indirectly contributed two million dollars to its improvements. Council have now answered our request for a donation. They have given us $20,000 which is fantastic. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We are very happy. We really do see this project as a partnership between Nortec, BRCC and our Council so it is great that Council sees it that way too. Everyone involved is a not-for-profit organisation and

it really is a win-win situation.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Nortec is now in the seventh year of a twenty year lease of the Council-owned building. The development of the site began with the building of the business incubators, and phase two saw the refurbishment of those offices. This new development stage sees the conversion of the big shed on site into a flexible classroom and exhibition

space, asbestos removal, and roof work. All building work is being conducted in an environmentally sensitive manner, with improvements being added that make the buildings more energy efficient. Jameson said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ACE Byron has moved out temporarily while the renovations take place in their building and the shed behind them. We will be redoing the roof of the ACE

building, replacing the rotten windows, removing asbestos and installing energy saving devices inside and outside the two buildings, such as awnings. Solar panels are also being installed.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Currently, and as building continues, ACE Byron will be located on the corner of Burringbar and Dalley Streets (diagonally opposite the post office).

What it means is that we need to really speed up our transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy and get dead-serious about energy efficiency.

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.

Byron Shire Council to get internal ‘ombudsman’ Michael McDonald

Byron Shire councillors voted 8-0 last Thursday in favour of setting up an Internal Ombudsman position reporting directly to the general manager. The job is expected to be on a three year contract at about $100,000 a year. Cr Ross Tucker moved a motion to establish the post and then voted with an amendment with extra provisions from Mayor Jan Barham. Activist Fast Buck$ followed the matter, sometimes loudly, from the public gallery. Cr Tucker said there was evidence for the need for the position as ‘otherwise staff are deviated from their main function’ while investigating complaints. General manager Graeme Faulkner took up the issue of public interest in impartiality and he said he would prefer an external ombudsman. The

GM’s problem, he said, was he could not establish such a position under the Local Government Act. ‘I am caught between a rock and a hard place,’ Mr Faulkner said. ‘To the extent I can make the position independent, I will.’ When Cr Barham asked Mr Faulkner if Council would receive ‘unfettered’ advice from the ombudsman, Fast Buck$ yelled out, ‘Get legal advice!’ The staff recommendation was to part-fund the position from paid parking revenue. Cr Richard Staples pointed out there was a ‘certain amount of trust’ that that money would be used for town improvements in Byron Bay. Cr Barham agreed, saying the funding recommendation was ‘a red rag to the business community’, and her amendment removed that option. Cr Barham said the new position would be ‘an independ-

ent way matters can be investigated and will build trust for the community. There are limited ways this can happen – ’ At which point Mr Buck$ interjected, ‘According to the general manager.’ Cr Diane Woods moved Mr Buck$ be ejected from the meeting, which is beyond her power to do. The mayor declined to take up the move, but Mr Buck$ settled the issue by yelling, ‘I don’t want to listen to this shit. What a pack of morons! You’re the worst I’ve seen in 25 years’, and stormed out of the chambers. Cr Barham said she wanted the position partly funded from the $1 million ‘squirrelled away’ in the general reserve. ‘[An ombudsman] has gone well for Warringah and Sutherland,’ she said. ‘This is as good as it gets. ‘It will assist in openness and transparency. Time will tell if the process is good.’

Cr Barham later told The Echo she had suggested the Warringah ombudsman model to the GM ‘as I was aware from other sources that it had worked. Council has been getting lots of calls of complaints that deserve to be handled independently.’ ■ Comment, page 10

MP Don Page in for heart surgery Ballina MP Don Page went into hospital for heart surgery last Monday. In a statement he said: ‘My office will continue to handle constituent enquiries as per usual, but under the surgeon’s instructions I am to take a few weeks off work to recover from surgery. ‘My apologies to anyone or group inconvenienced by this event, but I hope to be back at work as soon as possible. I trust my constituents will understand.’

Mullum Show traditions revived The 102nd Mullumbimby Show is coming to town. Everyone’s invited to the exciting new-look Show on November 14 and 15. The showgrounds look a treat thanks to an enthusiastic fresh show committee under president Tony Naclerio. Many committee-members remember the Show in its heyday and were determined to revive the tradition of all the attractions of a country show. The group was concerned that if the showgrounds are underutilised they may fall out of the community’s hands. ‘The show has been good for the town,’ Tony said, ‘and we need to see that the grounds are kept to be utilised for the kids.’ So it’s time to polish up the ute, pretty up the poultry and get cooking to enter for prizes. Everyone of all ages is invited to prepare entries for the Pavilion competitions. Categories include art and craft, photography, cooking, flowers and vegetables, poultry, beef cattle and pets. A complete list of categories and entry forms is available at www.mullumbimbyshow.org.au. Many children are already busy making their entries for the School’s Scarecrow Competition. To get the event off in style there’s the Showgirls Gala Dinner Ball at the Mullumbimby Bowling Club on Wednesday November 4. Tickets are $45 per person including a three course dinner and entertainment with comedian Ellen Briggs, DJ Stevie D, and singer Eleea Navarro. This is fill-

The Showgirl competition aims to find a young woman to act as an Ambassador for Rural NSW involving many official and informal duties. The winner will be announced at the official Mullumbimby Show Opening Ceremony at lunchtime on Saturday November 14. Mullumbimby’s first Truck Show and Parade will roll down the main street at 10am on Saturday November 14 leading the way to the fun with a program packed with displays,

music, competitions, petting zoo and kid’s space, truck, ute and motorbike shows and the ever-favourite sideshow alley. Saturday is the main competition day with lots going on in the cattle and horse rings including a talent quest and concert. Sunday Funday features a pet show, markets, buskers and the Pavilion charity auction. For the musical among us the talent quest on Saturday is open to singers and musicians. There are prizes for under 12s and over 12s involving one or two performers and an open category for groups of three or more. Entries must be in by

November 11 and for more information call Margaret on 6684 1128. Ute owners can just turn up on Saturday morning by 8am to display their vehicles and for a $10 entry fee can join in for trophies in a range of categories. Motorbikes including vintage models will be on show on Sunday. The Show kicks off each day at 8am and costs $7 to enter – children 15 and under free. For more information check the website or contact secretary@mullbimbyshow.org.au or call Desley Creighton on 6684 2621.

Music will be provided by a rockin’ country dance band imported all the way from Casino, Check 2, and there’ll be solo performances including trumpeting and bush poetry. To bring things more up to

date, there’ll also be an Aboriginal dance segment during the day, where Jason Campbell amazingly morphs a traditional goanna dance into a modern hip-hop/break dance sequence. There’ll be food on sale, Coorabell Public School will be running a maypole for the kids to wear themselves out on from 11:15am, and there’ll be a display of Jeff Wadsworth’s won-

derful collection of old-fangled farm machinery and engines. The Centenary Day will be in two sessions, from 11am to 3pm, with lunch, kids games and entertainment. Then from 7pm to midnight a night of dancing and merriment. A very detailed and fascinating history of the hall and the Coorabell area has been compiled by Kristine Pryor from

old newspaper clippings, public records and private photos and recollections. It’s been turned into a visual presentation by Wendy Gray, and it will be on show on a large screen at the hall during the day. It will also be available for sale as an 80 page booklet to help fund the event. For more information call Kristine on 6687 2538 or visit www.coorabellhall.net.

On Sunday November 8 local not-for-profit organisation the Natural Death Centre is holding the third annual Day of the Dead in Heritage Park, Mullumbimby. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The previous events have been gentle but extremely powerful opportunities to come together as individuals and community to appreciate our common experience of loss,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said one of the organisers, celebrant Zenith Virago. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We are often affected by similar emotions by the deaths of those we knew or loved, or even those we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, and in our loss, we are all connected, so visable in our shire recently. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Day of the Dead offers an afternoon for reflection, remembrance, creativity and ceremony as a healthy expression of our emotions and memories, where we can celebrate those we love, without the rawness of the death itself and in the company of others. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Many cultures have a Day of the Dead or All Souls Day, even Halloween is really a celebration of death and spirit. So there is clearly a great need. We are just creating a more contemporary and broad based ceremony, which is a cultural shift and hopefully will allow us to celebrate death as a natural part of our life cycle. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No matter how much time

has passed we can continue to honour the people, our relationships and ourselves. By entering into the sadness we can often transform it into celebration of what they gave to us. It is also an opportunity to see how much has healed. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This year is particularly poignant as we have experienced the deaths of several young people in sudden and shocking circumstances, and many of us have been deeply affected.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The intention is to remember those we love who have died this year, those that have died previously, those that are living that we love, and to appreciate the interconnectedness of all humanity, regardless of differences. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The intention of the NDC is to demystify and honour death and to celebrate life. Other centres in Australia are also picking up this idea as a way to approach a fuller experience

for our bereavement and associated loss and grief.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The day starts at 3pm with community artist Sam Collyer available with art materials to create a tribute which then together makes a collective shrine. The ceremony begins at 4pm. Bring a chair or a rug, and a photo, or any mementos. Everyone is welcome and it is a free event. See more at www. naturaldeathcentre.org.au.

Film night honours Mervyn Brown

Mullum’s taste of hog heaven

Bangalow is gearing up for a local film night at the Bangalow Hotel on Monday October 26. Filmmaker Lisa Sharpe is putting together a retrospective of her short films (mostly in collaboration with Terry Bleakley) for one night only as a final fundraiser for her bike ride with another Bangalow mother Krysten Basso. Among the films is Heart of a Man, Lisa and Terry’s moving documentary telling the stories of six Bangalow war veterans spanning their experiences in WWII, Palestine, Malaya and the conflict in Vietnam. This film was shown before last Anzac Day at the A & I Hall and received a tremendous response and many requests for Jack (Pasquale) Constable on his Big Bear Chopper, was one of more than 100 motorcyclists who it to be shown again. The showing will be dedilunched at Mullum’s ‘Middle Pub’ on Sunday, transforming the usually quiet main street into a cated to Mervyn Brown who, sea of gleaming chrome and fat rubber.

Terry is also putting together a short film tribute of people who have appeared in their films and have since died, such as local legends Frank Scarrabelotti and Kaye Hall. The first half of the evening will be a selection of shorts

Shuttle service short-cuts drink driving Victoria Cosford

Byron Bay Liquor Accord has announced that a late night shuttle service will start in mid to late November this year. Its key purpose is to address the local drink-driving problem which does not seem to want to go away. La La Land’s Luke Thomas told The Echo that ‘RTA statistics show that Byron has held the worst drink-drivwww.echo.net.au

ing record in NSW for the last seven to eight years – and it’s time to address that.’ The RTA has provided $25,000 of funding for the project, which will see buses running from 7pm until 4am on both Friday and Saturday nights for customers of licensed premises. Sunrise, Byron Bay township, Lillipilli, Baywood Chase and Suffolk Park will be part of a predominantly designated

route, and the intention is to make this a permanent facility. The aim is for a low cost service with a nominal fare charged. According to Hotel Great Northern manager Mike Spalding, the shuttle service ‘can only have a positive impact on the late night trade in town and the venues that support it. The taxis do get overloaded and this will be a huge benefit to dispel all the revellers.’ <echowebsection=Local News>

Claytonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ombudsman Byron Shire Council appointing an â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;internal ombudsmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to investigate complaints â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and reportable to the general manager â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is hardly an ombudsman at all. As Fast Buck$ noted at public access a couple of weeks back itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like the cops watching the cops, and the historical examples of some police internal investigation units are hardly encouraging. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a confusion of language as well as of understanding and expectations. An ombudsman is meant to be independent of the public body he or she is investigating on the peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behalf. Most people would associate the role with the NSW Ombudsman (www.ombo.nsw.gov.au) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which notes â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The word â&#x20AC;&#x153;ombudsmanâ&#x20AC;? dates back to 1809 when the Swedish Parliament created a new official known as the JustitieOmbudsman. This loosely translates as â&#x20AC;&#x153;citizenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defenderâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;representative of the peopleâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or the Independent Commission Against Corruption (www.icac.nsw.gov.au). I would not usually associate a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;citizenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defenderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with a position reportable to â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and hired by â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a general manager who may be the one complained against. A better term would be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;complaints managerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, whose role is to take the investigative onus off staff who are meant to be doing other jobs and who may not have investigative skills in the first place. The internal ombudsman role is not entirely new to NSW councils. There is one at Warringah Council, which before the job was established had a history of a high level of complaints. You can find the link to the Warringah ombudsman page under the drop-down â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; menu at www.warringah. nsw.gov.au. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Office of the Internal Ombudsman is an accountability institution to ensure that in every possible way, Council acts to serve the public interest,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; proclaims the site, and you can read the annual reports to see just how well that function is being performed. There are also ombudsmen at Sutherland, Ku-ring-gai, Auburn, Tamworth and Wollongong councils. All are members of the Corruption Prevention Network (www. corruptionprevention.net). This internal complaints investigation process will not satisfy everyone in terms of demonstrating accountability and independence. How well it works will depend on the ombudsmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reports to councillors being free of interference from the general manager. Neither necessarily would an external ombudsman produce a searing analysis of staff performance. Investigations into our council by the Department of Local Government in 1996 and ICAC in 1995 were not exactly feats of forensic brilliance. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Michael McDonald, editor

There is not much humour to be had in the climate change debate but lobbyists GetUp managed to raise a laugh and attract the news media with its ad campaign â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;iCoal 2.0â&#x20AC;&#x2122; which takes the piss out of the coal industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greenwash â&#x20AC;&#x201C; watch the ad at www.getup.org.au. The Australian C oal Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s po-faced executive director Ralph Hillman takes a much more serious approach to the emissions trading scheme, as well he might, over at www.australiancoal. com.au. The ACA claims â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;this new taxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; will result in 16 mines closing prematurely, cost thousands of coal jobs and send a nasty dose of salts through little towns. You have to admire their colossal cheek. After sitting on their well-padded arses for decades while the writing became more and more apparent on the proverbial wall, the coal barons have now realised that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to fight to keep their industry alive and to keep their major shareholders in BMWs. And they oppose an ETS which will actually pay them to pollute! â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Open another Bollinger, Jeeves, the taxpayers are so generous.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The coal industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other website for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;NewGenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; coal www.newgencoal.com.au â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the iCoal GetUp is parodying â&#x20AC;&#x201C; spruiks the $1 billion the industry is spending on carbon capture and storage. The relatively untried carbon capture technology is high tech and high energy use, if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking pumping CO2 underground. (There is some research on using algae to clean up carbon.) If it succeeds, it could see a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cleanerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; coal in 2025 but it is a big investment

with many variables to ponder, including the possible escape of carbon dioxide from underground. The coal industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future in Australia is to a large degree dependent on how happy the general punter is with her electricity continuing to come from coal-powered stations and with sending our coal to China so it can continue to pollute its own countryside and export its particulate emissions to California. (Who knows, the toxins might improve the movies coming out of Hollywood.) Yes, coalminersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; jobs are at

climate science in preparation for the Copenhagen conference. Prof Steffen maintained a professional calm during the interview â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which you can watch at www.abc.net. au/catalyst â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but his remarks were not exactly encouraging: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What that meeting [of climate scientists this year] I think really brought home was a sense of urgency. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In laymanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s terms weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re heading for the worst case scenario as weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re tracking now. Sea level rise is tracking at the upper level range of projections, air temperature moves up and down because it has a

Yes, it might make more sense to invest in retraining for renewable energy jobs than in propping up bloated dinosaurs. And yes, what is happening now may be bigger in terms of dislocation and angst than the first two Industrial Revolutions in the 18th and 19th centuries. As the World Resources Institute website says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Earth Doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Do Bailoutsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  â&#x2013;  â&#x2013; 

Last Thursday ABCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catalyst interviewed Prof Will Steffen, one of the authors of the 2009 Synthesis Report â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you can download it at the ANU Climate Change Institute site www.anu.edu.au/climatechange/section/products â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which summarises the latest

lot of variability in it but ocean temperature is certainly tracking at the upper level. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I think the thing that alarms me the most is the combination of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening in the ocean and whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening in the ice sheets. Ice sheets are probably moving more rapidly than we thought was conceivable five or ten years ago. You see large blocks of ice are splitting off the outlet glaciers, they slide into the sea and the water level raises instantly.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Prof Steffen agrees with the general temperature rise threshold at which we enter dangerous climate change being set a two degrees â&#x20AC;&#x201C; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re currently 0.75 degrees above pre-industrial levels. At two degrees the Great Barrier Reef is really in trouble, the Himalayan glaciers will go and

maybe the Greenland ice shelf will slip into the sea â&#x20AC;&#x201C; leading eventually to a global sea level rise of seven metres. At three to four degrees, says Prof Steffen, we get â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;massive losses of biodiversity, really big changes to water resources, very, very hot temperatures, very extreme bushfires and so on. We see the trends already at three-quarters of a degree. And that should give us pause for thought. I think the next ten years are crucial. If weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not really on top of this and bending those curves down by 2020 I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really behind the eight-ball at that point.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x2013; â&#x2013;  â&#x2013;  â&#x2013; 

Campaign fatigue? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost as bad as compassion fatigue. The number of websites calling upon you to act on climate change includes Tcktck, GetUp, 350.org, ACF, Avaaz, Greenpeace, the list goes on. Though the goals may be the same, the diversity springs up because of different interests and prejudices, and sometimes you feel like it would be handy to have one megasite for the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerns, say, Ohshitwhatarewegoingtodoaboutit.com. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the lobbying ecosystem for you, complex like the rest of life. Maybe for now just concentrate on the International Day of Climate Action on October 24 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; see www.350. org. And while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re waiting for the temperature to rise, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a joke from blogger Robert Butler: Q: How many climate sceptics does it take to change a lightbulb? A: None. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too early to say if the lightbulb needs changing. â&#x2013;

Ă&#x20AC;Â&#x153;Â&#x17D;iÂ&#x2DC;Ă&#x160;i>`Ă&#x160;+Ă&#x2022;>Ă&#x20AC;Ă&#x20AC;Ă&#x17E;Ă&#x160; >Ă&#x20AC;Ă&#x152;Â&#x2026;Ă&#x153;Â&#x153;Ă&#x20AC;Â&#x17D;Ă&#x192;

God bless good old Auntie ABC... and all those who rely on her for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;realâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; news. It took more than two years chipping away looking for a chink in the armour of the mainstream media before the recent dust storms finally gave me the chance. I was quickly onto the blower and ABCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current affairs flagship PM program picked up the story. The dust storms which originated near Roxby could come laden with radioactive dust next time if BHPBillitonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans for a radical open cut mine are given government approval, I argued.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Balanced reportingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; demanded a reply so PM sought an academic from University of Queenslandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mining Rehab centre. No, no, no. There is no cause for alarm or thinking the radioactive tailings can blow in the wind to Brisbane or Byron Bay, Associate Professor Barry Noller reassured listeners. Phew. The average listener feels thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one less environmental concern to angst about after all. Alarmist Bradbury! A quick google by PMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journalist would have shown that Associate Prof Barry Noller also believes the accidental spill

of 260,000kgs of cyanide in the mouth of the Fly River, PNG, would have â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;negligible impactâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on the environment and local indigenous population. (BHPBâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Environment Chief is head of the Advisory Board of Barryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Centre who own the mine where the cyanide was spilled. Rio Tinto and Xstrata are also on the Board). Barry also believes the risk to humans from lead tailings at Mt Isa is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;lowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Despite medical reports concluding it is having a major impact on local childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brain development. I was stitched up good and

proper. When I emailed and rang PM and pointed out how irresponsible their â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;balancedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; reporting was, I got no reply. BHPBilliton have their AGM in Brisbane on November 26. Make an effort to get there and let the Big Australian and its shareholders (probably your super funds...) know you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want more uranium mined. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the wishes of traditional owners here and overseas run over. Go to www. roxstop-action.org for more details.

Ombudsman needed

(given the RTA developed a viable route option outside Zone 7(c)â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environment protected water catchment). Her approval would also set a precedent providing the RTA with untrammeled powers to build roads without regard to legislation, guidelines and standards which the government has put in place to protect the rights of citizens. All Ballina Shire residents and Ballina Council, which is fully aware of the public health risk, should be interested in Minister Keneallyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision.

they want for their locality. We of SPPA warmly invite all members of BHPA to come and share in our celebration of those who have dedicated themselves to local progress associations and of their often quite remarkable achievements, the results of which are enjoyed by the residents of today. In fact all residents of Byron Shire are encouraged to join us on this day to celebrate not just our local achievement but that of all people who work together for the greater good of their community.

These factors will have a tsunami rather than a ripple effect. If you have concerns please contact Byron Shire Council as soon as possible. The development application number is 10.2008.762.1 and the closing date for objection submissions is October 30.

I congratulate Graeme Faulkner on his efforts to streamline Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities with the addition of extra staff and departments to handle the everincreasing burden placed on Council due to climate change, water scarcity etc. One very important and useful position that has been overlooked is that of an independent ombudsman. If our experience is anything to go by, an independent unit headed by an ombudsman to deal with disputes is vitally necessary to ensure developments that contravene Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development application process can be dealt with without favour and in a timely manner by qualified, independent, experienced individuals in consultation with all stakeholders.

T2E delay Why hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Minister Keneally approved the Preferred Route Option for the Pacific Highway Tintenbar to Ewingsdale? Is it because Minister Keneally is now aware that the RTA has broken the law? It did not comply with the legislation protecting Ballina Shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drinking water, ie LEP Zone 7(c). Her departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Director General stated that legislation protecting water quality for critical infrastructure projects must be complied with. It did not comply with the Australian Drinking Water Guidelines for the provision of safe drinking water. Rous Water has stated that the water quality control measures proposed by the RTA are unacceptable. While the so called preferred route is deemed â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;critical infrastructureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and therefore beyond legal challenge, such status does not protect Minister Keneally from her â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;duty of careâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to 30,000 Ballina Shire residents. Her approval would raise an unnecessary public health risk

Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s progress Evidently Michele Grant has set the record straight regarding the longest continuously running progress association in Byron Shire as being Brunswick Heads not Suffolk Park, which will celebrate its 50th anniversary this Sunday October 25 at the Suffolk Park Holiday Park. The retention of local histories is a hit-and-miss affair and requires some commitment from communities to remember the efforts made, usually by just a few in the past that have provided many benefits enjoyed today. The upside of the Suffolk Parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s erroneous claim is that it has brought some public attention to the achievement of those in Brunswick Heads and we Parkies duly congratulate them on this. The progress associations have over many decades provided many benefits to their local communities and in fact have played a major role in the processes of government as a means by which locality focused aspirations are brought to the attention of local government. They also have the potential to strengthen local community spirit and ideally empower them to be proactive rather than reactive in deciding and determining what

Better uses for wealth So, James Packer lost $2 billion on bad investments in casinos in Las Vegas. Imagine if heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d invested that money into massive wind farms and solar energy plants in Australia. Not only is it a certain winner investing in clean energy but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d also feel he made a difference. He could have changed the face of energy production in Australia and in the process be an inspiration to the world. Oh well, everyone makes mistakes. Maybe next time.

The partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over A week is a long time in politics, and so it came to pass that at the beginning of one recent council meeting I led the singing of Happy Birthday for Jan Barham, and exactly one week later I was storming out of a meeting calling her and her green quislings the biggest lineup of morons Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d encountered in 25 years. Yep, the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s over. Before you ferros fulminate in Janâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defence let me declare that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tried really hard to like her as mayor and to shift the blame for various stuffups from her to the staff, simply because I know they are pulling the wool over her eyes on a daily basis. The trouble is that Jan herself is in denial about that; she will currently entertain no

Motel concerns We are writing to express our concern regarding the revised multimillion million dollar development application for the Sunseeker Motel, 96-100 Bangalow Road, Byron Bay, for a number of reasons. The revised application is still a substantial increase on the original size and has done nothing to allay our fears of: 1. Traffic congestion at the Scott Street/Oakland Court intersection as there is an existing bottleneck. 2. The impact of such a large development on the suburban environment. 3. A licensed hotel with conference/reception facilities in a suburban street.

Rising spleen levels pound the coastline of comment Seems the Belongil Progress Association has taken Steve Tyson aside and had a little talk to him about public relations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his latest letter almost makes sense, and I have been promoted from â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;leader of the posse of Green fascistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;millionaire bashing, coastal â&#x20AC;&#x153;expertâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a bit confused about due diligence, though â&#x20AC;&#x201C; better known as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;buyer bewareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been around a lot longer than I have, as has the knowledge that it was not smart to build â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;permanentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; structures on sand dunes. And global warming and rising sea levels were widely addressed in the media more than 20 years ago â&#x20AC;&#x201C; perhaps Mr Tyson was living in a cave at the time. Of course, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always easier to blame someone else rather than take responsibility for our own mistakes, but personal responsibility is part of our free enterprise market economy. If Mr Tyson doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like this, he

suggestion that everything under her stewardship is less than perfect. In fact so blameless is her running of the shire that she now has sufficient spare time to take up running of the State Upper House at the same time. Wow. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have space to go into the specifics of the sequence of events that led to the breach; let me just say that at the earlier meeting referred to I made submissions on a number of issues and Jan sat smiling throughout, to all appearances listening attentively, laughing at jokes. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Finally Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m getting through to these guys,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I thought. And then it came to vote on the first issue, which concerned staff allegedly tampering with the minutes. Suffice it to say that Jan shat on me from a great height â&#x20AC;&#x201C; very politely of course. Then she with said

could always move to somewhere with a different system, although Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure what the beaches are like in North Korea.

I was encouraged by the statement of Sydney Coastal Councils Group that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worried Byron Shire Council has been ignoring community consultation and legal precedents for the past 20 years on this issue. [Actually, the SCCG is worried about the state governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ed.] I was impressed with the letters addressing this issue because they both appeared to be generated from both the mind and the heart â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and that forms a balance that I love to see in the letters in this section. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obvious to me that this community does, very much, need to have a heart-to-heart debate on coastal issues, and

weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very much qualified to do just that. But whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s missing is the opportunity for the community to have more than a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;consultationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; position in this matter. So, where do the bucks stop? When the politicians are elected they have a solemn duty to implement the will of the people. Up to this time weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all been collectively responsible for not making our elected officials perfectly aware of our will. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about time we get our act together and give the council more than our â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;consultationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. I believe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to give them our will â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so they can implement it and fulfill their duty. Maybe in the end this is what will save council from administration. Lastly, and probably most importantly, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pleased to hear that an on-going peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s referendum will be initiated in the Byron Shire on November 3 for the specific purpose of al-

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no pleasure in seeing properties threatened by the elements, and of course the natural response is to take every measure to protect them. However, when that land is right next to or on Crown land, then it becomes a concern of the wider public due to the ease of access and visual amenity. What would be the construction standards for such protection works, and what materials would be used? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen my fair share of protection works incorporating tyres, discarded car bodies, and broken concrete. Thus, the responsibility of policing such works would likely fall onto Council. And unfortunately, when it comes to the allocation of Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scarce resources, I would rather see those resources directed to ventures other than castles built on sand.

quislings went on to vote the opposite way to almost everything I had suggested, thereby allowing Ross Tucker and the staff to have their way with her â&#x20AC;&#x201C; without her being astute enough to even realise it. I emerged from the session feeling utterly betrayed and humiliated. In fact I had the distinct sensation that my being nice to her somehow indicated (in her mind) that I was now in her power, one of her loyal subjects. There was also a feeling that I was being given a message: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I am the mayor here, Mr Buck$, not you. I will humor you but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you can influence the course of events!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Well is there any greater evidence of delusion than the belief that I will wear such insults and denial of my worth and hard work without retaliation? The feeling of betrayal

is one of the most disagreeable sensations one can endure, and indeed I felt physically ill for several days. Even Ross Tucker had given me a distinct look of sympathy. And then came the release of belly laugh: I read in The Echo Council had done a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;restructuringâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (the oldest trick in the book for giving the impression of change when in fact everything remains precisely the same) which included a new position called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Climate Change Officerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. I laughed so loudly that my wife came running in alarm. Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have ever thought of Jan as a comedienne. Over the coming months I will prove to open-minded readers that Queen Jan is all smoke and mirrors, a massive ego on the rampage, an empress without clothes. She needs honest feedback, and I

intend to provide it; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what friends are for, right? PS: Ferros, please note, every time I meet Lisa Christofferson I plead with her to get back into politics, so back off on the obvious.

cult to read etc, etc... Many fresh foods have come off the list of ingredients allowed: mushrooms, watermelon, etc, etc, now regarded as too risky. He had also found out that the reason nursing home cooks are paid so little ($17.50 an hour) is that the owners are taking advantage of the law professionally labelling these cooks and chefs as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;catering assistantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. He tells me the new regulations are so severe and annoying that nursing homes wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to attract chefs or cooks, all nursing homes will all have to resort to the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;chill and cookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; suppliers, and powdered food suppliers, there will be very little fresh food to be cooked and served immediately. As good food is one of the basic enjoyments of life, I am personally very sad that old people wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to enjoy any aspect of the nursing home at all.

As far as I am concerned: if I go to a nursing home it will be to go die there, and I would rather die from mushroom poisoning than live on and not enjoy any of my food. The whole system is definitely completely dreadful. I am now totally converted to euthanasia. This is progress.

There are many many new health regulations in the kitchen at work, eg making a sandwich now involves sanitising the knife every time for each sandwich, recording the date on each sandwich, even though you know it will be used immediately, and noting down the batch number of things used in the sandwich, often written so small it is diffi-

Letters

Too late to resurrect the north coast rail service â&#x2013; In response to Karin Kolbeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dismissive letter (Echo, October 13), letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get a few facts straight. As a qualified engineer with 55 years experience in heavy engineering I do value my cost assessments ahead of PWC, although I concede, each bridge would require an individual redesign and cost estimate. In 20 years of association with Price Waterhouse Coopers, (my companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s auditors), I never once came across a civil engineer in their employ. The old wooden bridges, referred to in my missive, would not, by any stretch of the imagination, pass the stringent safety criteria required of modern railway systems. Take a look at the photo accompanying the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;goannasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; letter in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Echo. Better still, Karin, drive to Billinudgel,

park at the pub and walk to the rail crossing. Head north up the line for 200 metres to the bridge over Marshalls Creek. Let me know if you feel comfortable walking across the rotted sleepers and ancient timber trestle supports. On the subject of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;back of envelopeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; costs, take a close look the Helen Street Footbridge estimates and compare. Over and above the total costs of reestablishing the service, upgrading tracks, bridges, stations, ticketing, parking, security, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the small problem of whose backsides are going to fill the seats. What frequency of service is required to encourage people to ditch their cars? How do they get to the station, where is this line going to conveniently take them? Bus services in the shire are appall-

ingly. However, I must take issue with Campbellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idiotic review of Beresfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s film (Echo, October 6), and assure anyone who has been put off seeing the film by said review that indeed Bruce Beresford has delivered a gem. For those of us who have read Cunxinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s autobiography (which Campbell admitted he had not), the challenges of recreating Cunxinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early life in Maoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s China, the difficulty of finding a Cunxin lookalike who could dance, speak English and act convincingly might have seemed daunting. OK, so no-one was eviscerated on screen, and there was not a hint of a sex scene, but John, this does not automatically mean that a film is not good. My theatre-going friend and I both found a remarkably faithful and moving account of the real social, political and emotional hurdles Cunxin faced.

Ocean Shores â&#x2013; It is pleasing to read the letter from the Minister for Transport David Campbell about the opening up of disused railway lines for recreational activities. The conversion of these corridors into rail trails for cyclists, walkers, horse riders etc is an excellent idea and is proving successful in other states. To continue to use the restoration of uneconomic trains is, sadly, flogging a dead horse. It is to be hoped that enough pressure will be maintained on the NSW government to push ahead with the rail trails. Some

Nothing was too much trouble and she had all of our tent sites etc grouped together and gave us full use of the camp kitchen for our big day when the local relatives all came to visit.

Brunswick Heads â&#x2013; I see how the issue of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;savingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the railway is still on peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minds. Wow, get over it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even in its heyday it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet the community needs.

Increased tourists of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;right kindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;(not drunks) flock to the towns and areas that have converted systems. I urge all like minded â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;silentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; community members to log on to rail2trail.org.au to get some amazing stats on how great it could be with a network for people who choose to travel without motors set up between Casino and Murwillumbah. Anyway, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a faster freight system on its way, a bit further west? PS: how this council parades as being â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is beyond belief.

Firstly I would like to say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;thanksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to the Voyeur Fashion ExposĂŠ for a wonderful experience. The young talent in our Shire is amazing. I say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;well doneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. It is amazing when young people open up to their creativity. They discover talent they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know they had.

Dey and Cr Tom Tabart from the fledgling Tweed Byron Greens who activated the local community in the early 90s. Together with BEACON, BEC and CONOS, they ploughed the path through bureaucratic obstinacy and forced Council to deal with our shit. Duncan and Tom along with other stoic community reps have remained on BSCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wastewater Committee for the past decade developing â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;eco-friendlyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; plans for the new plant and reviewing onsite proposals. Years were also squandered wrestling with Settlement Strategies and new LEPs to manage the inevitable onslaught of new development.

remains our best defence in the ongoing Woolworths saga. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the cosmic convergence of old hippies and the freak brigade that has saved us so far. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the dogged persistence of a small network of people who are prepared to read those turgid DAs and gain intimate knowledge of the facts, the law, political and legal processes. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re skilled and effective communicators, able to present a logical and ethically sound case that wins widespread community support and stands up in court.

For instance, chemical fertilisers help create climate change. Used in industrial farming they deplete soil by stimulating microorganisms to convert organic matter into methane and CO2. They also produce nitrous oxide and ammonia; these two gases, meth-

Thank you again, Colin Heaney. KOTS is a system that works for the homeless children and the needy.

Since my recent letter to The Echo asking what our strategy is in Byron Shire for feeding ourselves, I discovered in the library Byron Shire Sustainable Agriculture Strategy 2004 and Byron Biodiversity Conservation Strategy 2004. These two wonderful documents provide a Greenprint and show just how much care has been dedicated to the health of our beautiful living shire for our future children to enjoy. And Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been told by our Statewide Coalition that we are blessed here with the council that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got. I would like to know who it was then, for godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sake, that Mo Hughes authorised council staff to Ocean Shores spend my rates on a nine-page

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;stripped backâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; plant, now under construction. Big high profile development has stalled for a decade, but the load on the old sewerage plants has continued to increase with incremental â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;unauthorisedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; additional dwellings springing up everywhere. Tourism and big festivals also put an ever increasing number of bums on toilet seats. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the corporate bogey whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s despoiling our environment, polluting our river or exploiting the tourists and landless, low income renters. The real â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;villainsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; are living amongst us, putting profit ahead of principles, careless of the consequences â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I think theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the ones with the dogs!

My last view of the kayaks with their outriggers launching from Byron Bay was framed with the leaves of the Pandanus, that Pacific Tree of Life. I could hear echoing in me that ancient call of the sea: come away! There are currents and winds throughout the Pacific as plain to sailors as roads are to landlubbers. Over time, great voyages have left no trace on the trackless sea but they have left traces and treasures on the lands where they rested. One of the greatest known voyages came to rest in Ballina in 1973. Its maritime museum now protects the Aztlán, the last of the three Las Balsas. Capitán Vital Alsar Ramírez led an expedition on these rafts, each seven balsa tree trunks tied together with hemp rope. Their journey began in Guayaquil, Ecuador. Alsar and his crew of eleven others sailed 14,000 kms in 179 days and reached Australia. At my first pilgrimage to the rafts, I was stunned by the proud little museum and the near complete obscurity of the exhibit. Salvadore Dali painted the sail with an emblem of testicles and heart, wrapped in fire. The Capitán is quoted as saying that these were symbolic of the determination vital for their journey. Where is the adjoining fleet of small traditional craft now giving locals and tourists a unique if short experience of the sea? Where are all the tourists anyway? The Las Balsas expedition was inspired by Thor Heyerdahl’s with the nine log balsa raft Kon Tiki. That raft, in a museum in Oslo, is visited by hundreds of thousands of people each year. Heyerdahl’s 1947 voyage with five crew was from Peru, covered about 2,500 kms and finished in the Tuamotu Islands. That voyage became famous internationally. The journey was the beginning of modern experimental marine archaeology. Heyerdahl wondered how people could have deliberately settled throughout the vast Pacific region. His journey gave practical evidence of travel from South America to the Central Pacific. Other evidence is the 1572 history produced by Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa, a Spanish explorer and humanist. He wrote a history of the Incas. He records tales that around 1480, the king Túpac Inca Yupanqui sailed by balsa rafts to and from what may have been both the Galapagos and Tuamotu. Why wouldn’t the early South Americans travel wherever they could? There is more evidence about travel which to my mind is still more proof of the ongoing seaworthiness of us nomadic

These are the capsicum, pineapple, a type of cotton, totora reed and sweet potato. The details of how one crop travelled has a new twist to it, so controversial the arguments have only started. The real Robert Langdon was executive officer of the Pacific Manuscripts Bureau in Canberra till his death in 2003. He found evidence of old Spanish cannons (vintage 1500) jettisoned near Tahiti. In 1525 the San Lesmes went aground on a reef. Well, it’s certainly not unusual for travel plans to go awry! Langdon further suggested that San Lesmes made repairs thurs 26 sun 29 in the Society Islands. Some crew stayed and others tried to return to Spain going southwest around the Cape of Good Hope. He thought they unexpectedly reached New Zealand and stayed there. With them came not only sweet potato but skills.

A rainbow fairy tale of New York Harsha Prabhu

The first signs were auspicious. At Brisbane airport, waiting to catch the flight out to LA, we bumped into Elizabeth Thorpe and Debbie Lee. Elizabeth and her partner Ray, proprietors of Happy High Herbs, were the principal sponsors of Rainbow Dreaming and Lee, artist and designer, is an old connection from Nimbin. Elizabeth and Lee were headed for USA to open Happy High’s first US store, in Arizona. And Hans and myself were headed for New York, bringing with us the stories and pictures of life in the rainbow region. From the plane, the New York nightscape glowed and flickered like some gigantic circuit board. Would the lords be kind to us? Would they let me in, with my Indian passport? At immigration, there was a blip: had my passport ever been stolen? Why was it registered as Australian? But it turned out OK. After a few questions, Officer Pena waved me through.

Goodbye laptop At the airport, the smiling face of Benny Zable, waving a rainbow flag, greeted us. Benny, Nimbin’s ambassador to Woodstock, was the kingpin in the rainbow bridge to Woodstock and beyond. Benny had arranged for us to stay in Brooklyn, at the studio of Traci Mann, a New York tap dancer. Disorientated by jetlag, Hans had left his laptop on the airport bus. That first night, with the El roaring past our window, we fell into a troubled sleep, woken by the clatter of the El and the cries of children at the daycare centre below. Our first pilgrimage in New York was to the Yippie Museum in Greenwich Village. The Village was the bohemian hangout par excellence in the sixties. It still has a funky, if gentrified, look. Jazz bars and restaurants dot the streets. The Yippie Museum resembles the Nimbin Museum, with a stage for performances. One night, we caught some fine performance poetry. It’s the headquarters of New York’s hemp legalisation campaign. They knew about Nimbin. They were also involved with a global linkup of cities for 2010. October 1 saw

Mullum writer’s story in new anthology Local writer Danielle Ellis, who won the Inaugural Nicholas Shand Beach Hotel Short Story Competition in 1997 and again in 1998, will have her latest short story ‘No Through Road’ featured in the new Cutwater Literary Anthology, launched in Sydney on July 11. This anthology, published with the assistance of a Write in Your Face grant from the Australian Council for the Arts, was edited by Dan Collins and Sam Twyford-Moore, newcomers to the Sydney literary scene. Danielle’s tale of a woman who decides to ‘give the straight life one more try’ was previ-

ously shortlisted in the prestigious My Brother Jack and Hal Porter competitions. It is set, as are many of her stories, in Mullumbimby and its surrounds, where she has lived, with brief breaks away, since 1977. Danielle also runs the manuscript assessment agency Patrick de Valera Manuscript Appraisals. Anyone wanting an appraisal can contact her at patrickdevalera@gmail.com. Copies of the Cutwater Anthology are obtainable from The Editors, P O Box 52, Toukley, NSW 2263 at a cost of $24.95 plus postage.

the launch of Mark Roselle’s book Tree Spiker. Mark Roselle is the founder of Rainforest Action Network. He’s also the man who infiltrated a Nevada test site. The day was also Benny’s birthday. The Yippie Museum was a happening place, true to its name of promoting green issues through direct action. It took us a while to work out what ‘uptown’ and ‘downtown’ meant in the subway, but we had worked it out by the time we left New York! Hans slipped out one night for a dose of jazz; the girls went on a harbour cruise; Benny was beavering away at the Ecofest office. My jetlag meant that I saw the city as if through a glass darkly. One image remains: a black, immaculately dressed sax player, playing In a Sentimental Mood in the subway at 50th Street.

Ecofest The Ecofest office, off Broadway, was a hive of activity, presided over by Nanci Callahan, queen bee and director/producer of New York’s signature ecological fair, now in its 21st year. We walked to Central Park to check out the site for this year’s Ecofest, passing Strawberry Fields and ‘Imagine’, the mosaic tribute to John Lennon. On park benches huddled New York’s homeless, shrouded in grey, under the shadows of the tall towers ringing the park. The Dakota apartments

where Lennon had been shot were across the street. ‘Yoko Ono pays for the maintenance of this section of the park and the homeless are permitted to sleep here,’ Benny explained. I thought of our homeless in Byron, chased from bus shelters, their beach humpies a mark for rangers. In this instance, New York seemed to have a heart. Sunday October 4 was a fine day. The Ecofest site began to fill up with vendors and exhibitors, including the latest hybrid cars from Toyota and Ford. We had been assigned the outer wall of the conference tent to set up the Rainbow Dreaming exhibit. Space restrictions meant only half the exhibit could be accommodated. We punched holes into the exhibition panels and strung them out on twine like washing on a line. It worked! Sayaka Nakao, Rina Terasaki and Saya Minami, our Japanese friends from Byron Bay, who had flown in the previous day via Tokyo to help with the exhibition tour, assisted us in this task. Ever enthusiastic, our petite helpers were worth their weight in gold. Hans and I would have struggled to manage the show on our own. O ver 25,000 visitors streamed through Ecofest that day and, as we were positioned at the entrance, many of these stopped by to check the exhibit. Among these was Nirmala, Gina Lakosta’s daughter, who was in New York to perform

a burlesque show under the stage name La Viola Vixen. Another was a couple from Goonengerry, amazed to stumble upon a slice of life from the rainbow region in the heart of New York.

Seeger singalong Tap dancers, including the amazing Mabel Lee, Traci Manns’ former teacher, all of 80; soul singers; stiletto heeled models strutting eco fashions; Rick Ulfik from We the World, the global peace network; Parrots for Peace from the Amazon rainforest; ending with a singalong with Pete Seeger, 90 years old and still singing his peace and environmental anthems. The sun shone down on Benny Zable’s rainbow flags; children fed ducks in the pond; whole families happily picnicked under the trees; frisbees flew in the air. Catching the last of the sunset, the tall towers seemed to shower us with riches and green fields became fields of gold. The evening ended with drumming. Three drum circles – Cuban, Haitian and African – rang out in the Park. The moon was full and so were our hearts. Postscript: Hans’s laptop, lost on our first night, was returned to him by the New York City Transport Authority on our last morning in New York, in a fairy tale ending to our stay in the Big Apple!

New look to Lismore show ASR celebrates Lance’s life

Verla Youngberry meets Zero, one of the special performing horses at this year’s North Coast National Show. Kevin Elsley

Verla Youngberry from Goolmangar, who has been going to the North Coast National show (www.lismoreshow.org.au) for at least 60 of her 80 years, can’t wait for the gates to open this year. Verla says it’s the sight of the grand parade that makes her day at the show. While disappointed there are not as many cattle and pigs being shown these days, both

show enthusiasts can see the need for the show to change and introduce other forms of entertainment if it is to survive and attract young people. ‘Changes have to be made because the youth is not so interested as us older ones in ring events. They are more into music and sideshow alley,’ Verla said. As a girl, going to the show with her parents was one of the year’s highlights; this year

18 October 20, 2009 The Byron Shire Echo

Verla hopes to bring her grandchildren with her. To Verla, a show is a show for the district’s produce and wealth that still attracts older people, but not so much today’s younger generation that wants other forms of entertainment. And while that is not a show, she agrees it’s what shows must have today if they want the patronage of young people. The cost of public liability and entertainment has the potential to cripple shows, according to Ray Ingram, who takes his hat off to the North Coast National organising committee for the balance it has struck this year between agriculture and other attractions to make the three-day event appeal to all tastes. With over 70 years going to this big attraction at Lismore showgrounds, this retired Lismore butcher says the only ‘bad’ show in his opinion is the one he misses. ‘I tell people going to the National is like having Christmas. It’s the place where you meet so many people once a year,’ says this spritely 81-year-old who will argue till the cows come home about the value for money as far as families go should they spend a day at the show. Ray can’t understand why people complain about the price of a ticket to the show when they don’t blink an eyelid at forking out a lot more to see a musical event at a local club when you compare a couple of hours of entertainment there to as much as 12 hours of greater variety at the local show. ‘I work at the show as a gate attendant and get a lot of feedback about price and then I read in the paper about other entertainment. ‘Most of those acts would run for two hours and let’s say the charge is $35. You won’t always see the star performer of the show for all of those two hours either.’

It’s difficult to believe that it’s been two years since the untimely death of well-known Pelican Man and Australian Seabird Rescue (ASR) cofounder, Lance Ferris. Actually, the length of time since the world lost the Pelican Man is kind of irrelevant. Lance Ferris had a presence that was always larger than life itself and although his physical presence is absent now, and deeply felt every day, for ASR he remains its true North. Despite her own profound loss, Lance’s daughter Rochelle and her partner Keith Williams have being carrying on the work, galvanising ASR and taking it forward. The Rehabilitation & Education Centre at Ballina is thriving and membership has doubled. says Rochelle. ‘Workshops, raising awareness in coastal communities, educating school kids, encouraging student interns and, of course, the rescue and rehabilitation of seabirds, shorebirds and sea turtles all continues, now gathering its own momentum. We miss him terribly, but we also draw great comfort from knowing how proud he would be.’ These days, there are many members who never met Lance, but whom he nonetheless inspires. Fellow co-founder and ASR president Marny Bonner remembers days back in the early 1990s when she sat on the riverbank with Lance in despair, wondering how they could possibly cope with so many injured pelicans. ‘Now I see branches and associate groups in other states achieving so much in reducing the human impact on coastal wildlife, all led by people for whom Lance was, and still is, a shining light,’ says Marny Ater two years of regrouping and rebalancing, ASR is ready to truly celebrate Lance’s life and launch the next phase of

the rescue organisation. And there couldn’t be a more appropriate date – Lance’s birthday, 12 December – to do it. The inaugural Lance Ferris Memorial Dinner will be held at the Ballina RSL Club, overlooking Lance’s beloved Richmond River. The event will also launch the Lance Ferris Memorial Public Fund, where every cent raised will feed and house seabirds and turtles, and also (hopefully) help provide a few small scholarships for students researching marine wildlife. The event will be a major fundraiser for ASR, incorporating a guest MC, entertainment and a live auction of great prizes, which ASR is encouraging local businesses to donate. ‘We’re hunting and gathering for some really good auction items so if you, or anyone

you know, can donate something, that would be great,’ says Marny. ASR is also looking for sponsors to cover the cost of some of its volunteers, at either $75 per volunteer or $700 to sponsor a table of ten. Or why not get together a table of ten friends and come along to support a great cause. ‘All who knew, loved and were inspired by Lance are invited to join us, and to help propel ASR into the future,’ says Marny. ‘Above all, it’s a time to feel deeply grateful for the man upon whose shoulders we stand.’ Tickets are available through Ballina RSL Club on 6686 2544. Cost is $75 per head or $700 for a table of 10 and includes a three-course meal and entertainment.

Land for Wildlife program launched Land for Wildlife is a voluntary property registration scheme launched by Byron Shire Council to encourage and support landholders to manage areas of their property for wildlife habitat. ‘We are excited to be able to offer the Land for Wildlife program for the first time in the Shire,’ said Council’s biodiversity extension officer, Wendy Neilan. ‘Private landholders, groups of individuals, schools and other government bodies who manage land with one hectare or more of High Conservation Value vegetation are eligible to apply. ‘Council recognises the significant contribution being made by private landholders to nature conservation in the Shire. Land for Wildlife is

<echowebsection=Articles>

about recognising this contribution and supporting people to manage areas of their land for wildlife habitat. ‘Through joining the program, participants will receive advice and ongoing support to achieve land restoration goals¸ learn about local plants and animals, creating habitat and how to incorporate nature conservation into overall property management. There are also many benefits of becoming part of a network with likeminded people.’ On Wednesday October 21, Mayor Jan Barham will officially launch the program and recognise the first group of landholders registered for Land for Wildlife in the Shire at Keith and Rhonda Wrigley’s property at The Pocket. The Wrigley’s

is a working cattle property with areas of High Conservation Value vegetation including rainforest and wet sclerophyll forest, and is home to 17 rare and threatened plant species. It is also home to a diversity of local wildlife including 90 bird species, platypus, wallabies, bandicoots, microbats, snakes, lizards and frogs. Ms Neilan said Keith and Rhonda have incorporated nature conservation goals into their overall farm plan. For more information on Land for Wildlife including how to apply to become a registered property go to www. byron.nsw.gov.au/land-forwildlife or contact Council’s Biodiversity Extension Officer on 6626 7119 or email biodiversity@byron.nsw.gov.au. www.echo.net.au

The race for sustainability New networking websites Story & photo Victoria Cosford

Victoria Cosford

There’s a touch of Race Around The World about the Lifeline Project – albeit with an environmental and humanitarian consciousness. In the former, an ABC television series from the late nineties, participants armed with video cameras set off on a journey around the world, creating documentaries in the process. The Lifeline Project consists of participants equipped with cameras travelling the globe in order to visit, work on and document sustainability projects around the world. Inspiration for it came from UK filmmaker Phil Stebbing, and this year sees the inaugural event. Over 12 months, three teams of three filmmakers each will embark upon three different journeys: London to Capetown, New York to Buenos Aires and Byron Bay to Tokyo. Brunswick Heads-based Kirsty Thompson is producer for ‘Team Oz’ and spoke to The Echo about the Project. Its purpose is to raise awareness of the environmental deadlines we face and to offer solutions for sustainable living; the means to do so will be ‘via the power of film and the internet.’ A long list of projects has been compiled and the itinerary for Kirsty and her two team members (comprising a cinematographer and another person she refers to as The Traveller) consists of Tasmania, New Zealand, The Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, Bali, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, China, Taiwan and Japan. They will not only be volunteering on and documenting the ef-

A website functioning as a social network dedicated to planetary awakening and making positive change has been created by local musician and artist Dan Vantari, aka Narada Das. Dan told The Echo that he had been ‘working solidly for three years with the idea of creating something involving large numbers of people online... with the focus on contributing something positive on a global level.’ The OneEarth Network ( at www.oneearth.ws) is described as ‘the world’s most beautiful and cosmic free online social networking site’ and is, in the words of Dan, ‘a new-age MySpace’, combining features of the latter with additional ones like instant messaging, customisable blog and dragand-drop content blocks. Dan’s ambition for it is to ‘develop it into a thriving hub for networking positive projects’ and eventually he hopes to facilitate ways for its members to sell their own (ethical, sustainable) products and services through their pages. What distinguishes it from other social network sites? ‘It’s a grassroots operation’, Dan explained, ‘and it will never be sold to corporations.’ Its

forts of individuals and grassroots organisations offering sustainable living solutions but will also be covering their own personal journeys (through video logs and blogs) and the highs and lows of travelling as sustainably as possible, avoiding air travel where they can, utilising public transport and ‘our own leg power’ – in short, to limit their carbon footprint. ‘We’ll be forced to slow down and enjoy the journey’, said Kirsty. ‘The aim is to make an entertaining, engaging and educational TV series alongside the short docos in order to appeal to as wide an audience as possible, thus spreading the message of sustainability as far as possible.’ Examples of the projects include the Iriri Village Project in the Solomon Islands where a micro-hydro electricity scheme has been set up to both supply energy and provide local employment; in Bali the East Bali Poverty Project supports the local community through education and employment opportunities. ‘The whole point about it for

me,’ explained Kirsty, who had long been interested in volunteer work and making a difference, ‘is to learn about these things – we’re going to get as involved as they let us.’ The big issue is, of course, funding for such an ambitious project which enables the nine participants to not only absent themselves from regular employment for 12 months but also to cover administrative costs,, insurance, food, travel, accommodation and gear. They are still in the process of applying to ethical corporations and any interested parties for funding as well as for ‘public donations by people who connect with our intentions.’ The outcome will include a 9-DVD box set called ‘The Ultimate Guide to Sustainability’, to be used as a resource for schools, communities and individuals as ‘an exact guide to making sustainable changes in all our lives.’ For further information, sponsorship enquiries or donations Kirsty can be contacted via kthompson@thelifeline.tv or on 0416 933 872.

categories include Sustainability, Sacred Geometry, Peace and War, Laughter Therapy, Whales and Dolphins and Time and Cosmos. ‘Its purpose is to network good projects and have positive things come out of it,’ said Dan. ‘I’m open to however that wants to happen really. I’m doing this as a service to the world, if you like.’ Because it is only as useful as the amount of people who decide to use it, he is looking for reviewers, monitors, artists and anyone else interested in becoming a part of the project. ‘We’re at that stage where all it really needs is a few more people involved and a bit of financing – I’ve done the whole thing on a total shoestring.’

In addition to this website he and two partners have created SpiritWeb Solutions, ‘a complete website building platform and website-managing tool that allows us to offer big-business features at a small-business price.’ With this website (www. SpiritWebSolutions.com) the partners wanted ‘to help local ethical businesses to get properly set up online. ‘We share a commitment to contribute something positive to the global process,’ Dan told The Echo. He claims it is ‘a tool to help people do whatever they dream.’ Anyone interested in the projects can call Dan on 0407 627 650 or email him at dan@ spiritwebsolutions.com.

Biopackaging to take away at the Top Story & photo Victoria Cosford

Andy Gordon of Byron Bay’s Top Shop reckons he sells around 2,500 cups of takeaway coffee every week. Becoming so aware of what he refers to as ‘the impact you have in the take-away business’ led him to the implementation, about six weeks ago, of a new type of biopackaging. BioCups are biodegradable coffee cups produced with a compostable corn-based plastic lining and as such are both fully renewable and leave a smaller environmental footprint. ‘It’s not even that much more expensive,’ he told The Echo, ‘and if more café owners could change over to them the price would come down even further.’ So far, customer response has been ‘overwhelming’. Andy spoke about the huge rise all over the world in the popularity of take-away and what he refers to as its ‘modernisation’. www.echo.net.au

‘We’re going to see a lot more of it in the future’, he said. The Top Shop, since he took over last year, has managed to undergo a dramatic transformation while retaining its essential ‘beachy’ feel. The 90-year old business was overhauled to create a cleaner, contemporary look; a brand new kitchen was installed and a large window opens out on to the street. Dishes sent out from the kitchen incorporate

locally-sourced ingredients where possible – Hayters Hill sausages, Alstonville chicken, Jordan’s breads – and the farmers’ markets are frequented. Distributor of the BioCups is John McCauley from Alpacka Packaging, who agreed with Andy that ‘you really have to have a grassroots community push for it’. For further information on this product John can be contacted on 6680 7747. <echowebsection=Articles>

I remember first seeing Deya Dova over a decade ago. She was a featured performer at a Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cabaret I was MCing at the dirt hole formerly known as The Epicentre. I remember looking at this pretty blonde chick and thinking, oh no, another acoustic strumming whale loving hippy chick. How wrong I was. More like something out of eastern Europe than Belongil, Deya, formerly known as Miranda is the mother of re-invention. What Bjork is to Iceland, Deya is to the desert, her music varying from a sonic sweeping plain to a pulsing pop dance track. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just recorded her latest album Burst, a dance electronica creation with what she calls â&#x20AC;&#x2DC; an indie pop twistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. We had a quick chat about her latest musical creation and her foray into music production. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always had a love for electronica. Even when I was just doing acoustic and looping. It came about for me by getting music software and being able to make the sounds that only I could hearâ&#x20AC;Ś over the last few years I have been messing around and incorporating live electronica on stage. Looping, triggering samples and then teaching myself how to create and record sounds.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Burst has marked an important part of Deyaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical journey. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a real solo journey for me in terms of the production â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I produced Burst myself. I had different players come in and play but I ended up producing it. I am joined in the live shows however by Hammo (husband and musical collaborator) who has a hybrid drum kitâ&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really going to be an upbeat dance show.

Big Deya Out â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My past two releases have been really experimental. Especially my second one. I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thinking of a market when I was making them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I was just going for it. A couple of years before that I came across an interview with Bjork. She said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to make avant garde music, the real challenge is to make really great pop music. I thought I am up for that. I got the experimental music out of my system and now I just want to write some catchy little numbers!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So what inspires Deya? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Finding the symbiosis â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the harmony between nature and technology. I am looking

for the balance. Often in technology there can be this representation of a distopia. I am not after that. I want to find the harmonious picture, what does the balanced picture, the utopia of that look like? The songs are inspired by that and the content is all sorts of things. I think my working with technology really reflects a female approach. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a reclamation. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a male dominated little niche, (music production) but also the whole nature of working with machines, there are a few women producers, which is fantastic, but they are mostly in Europe. I think when women

work with technology there is a different sensitivity that comes through. I am intrigued by the sensitivity of the human spirit.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So what happens when Deya is in the studio. How does she feminise her approach to electronic music creation? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;When I started working on this album I was so focused on getting this sound that I could hear in my head. A lot of the tracks started with a great bass or a glitchy sound and then my process was to start looping my voice as if I was working live with my looper and just start singing and see what was coming down. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d

build the track and it would unfold and each track would have a vibe and then would grow out of that. What interests me is getting out of the way with creationâ&#x20AC;Ś I am not going to try and make anything in particular. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This album has been a really interesting journey because the sound is much bigger. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much fuller and full of so many different sounds.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

I have found the perfect contraception: Evan’s Head Caravan Park. It’s so effective you may never want to have sex again. As a holiday treat our family of seven bunked down in a sweet little working class van park by the sea. For a generation of kids who view trips to Bali, luxury hotels and the privacy of their own room as an expectation rather than a privilege, regular time in a caravan is the perfect innoculation to protect your precious litter from becoming spoilt brats. I am thinking of promoting it as a brand

new form of family therapy. It really brought us together. Literally. There’s no fights about clearing the table when later that night you have to sleep on it. The bliss of a few MySpace, MSN, DVD free days, where the silence is punctuated by body gas and the sounds of nature. Life’s Felliniesque soundbites drift by, with grabs from the tubby 6 year old in the van next to us who turned to her morbidly obese Mum and growled: ‘If you’re finished with that can I eat the rest of the chicken?’ to the family of 16 from Casino fighting over who gets first dibs on the yabby pump. The highlight was definitely the family trip to the amenties block and the comaraderie that comes with having only one bar of soap. And one pair of thongs. Somehow when issuing packing instructions I forgot the golden rule of van parks: thongs. Walking in thongs, showering in thongs, sleeping in thongs. Caravan parks cannot be negotiated without a pair or double pluggers. It’s the

LOVE THONG FOR VAN PARK rubber passport. The cultural equivalent to travelling abroad and speaking the native tongue. In caravan parks around the country thong is the first language. Thongs are prophylactics for the feet, protection against plantar warts. Fear of foot warts put the fear of god into the kids who had forgotten to bring theirs. Instead they opted for showering in their shoes. There’s nothing quite as perverse as standing naked under a stream of hot water in your thongs. I’ve been home a week and I still can’t get out of the habit. You don’t get thong showering at the Versace. No-one fronts up with flipflops at the Hilton. Rubber love is sacred to communal showering and based on the assumption that the poor

carry viral infections. There is nothing to say that you couldn’t catch plantar warts at a 5 star hotel. But they’d be rich warts, and everyone would want them. Plantar prejudice has it pigeonholed for the proletariat. While a curse to some, this much maligned wart does have some advantages. For the days holed up in the annexe during inclement weather, the plantar provides hours of fun picking at it with tweezers. There’s also something quite magical about the concept that every plantar imbedded deep in the foot of every van dwelling vacationer holds a little DNA of the camper who came before. It is truly a holiday in the land of hobbits. One wart to bind us…

This concert brings together two of Australia’s most respected and treasured singer songwriters, indigenous song-man Archie Roach and Shane Howard, former front man of the legendary 1980s band, Goanna, whose massive anthem, Solid Rock from the album, Spirit of Place continues to reverberate across the country’s airwaves. Howard continues to pay homage to the culture of his Irish ancestors and the culture of the Aboriginal people whose land he lives on. He combines a deep understanding of poetic and musical folk traditions and his songs also have a global reach. His musical alliance with Roach brings black and white together in a powerful mix of songwriting, passion and performance. A member of the Stolen Generation, Roach recorded Took The Children Away, a moving indictment of the treatment of indigenous children. The song received two Aria Awards and an international Human Rights Achievement Award. Archie Roach continues to be an inspiration with his long time partner and musical collaborator Ruby Hunter. His home in SA is something of a refuge for troubled youth, his heart as big as this land itself. Through song and story both Archie and Shane reach out to bridge the divide between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal

Sea Moon… Poem Shapes by Melody Lemond I was flattered and a little shocked when Melody Lemond, author of Sea Moon a book of poems asked me to review her work. I’m not much of a poetry fan, although I can see the literary beauty within. I had to read it secretly, lest someone I know saw me reading a book of poems and thought I’d had a mental collapse. Lemond has created a beautiful book with her text arranged in poem shapes. The

words themselves are carefully stacked and weighted. There is almost something a little Haiku extended dance mix about them. One could even say that it’s a bit like holding a shell to one’s ear and hearing the spiral unfurl… Her poetry borrows from stream of consciousness free form and unfolds her thoughts like soft ant feet meandering across the page. Her work is tender and gentle, sometimes surreal,

language. He has this uncanny ability of understanding culture at such a deep level it only takes him moments to assimilate just about anywhere. Atherton is a relentless onstage comedy wrecking ball, with a mouth that moves faster than the speed of sound. Tickets are at the pub for $15/20 a pop. Book on 6684 3443 or grab ‘em before hand.

EXCISION

(SBNNZ /PNJOFF at The Buddha Bar

2009 Grammy Nominee Anthony David makes a very special appearance at the Buddha Bar in Byron Bay this Saturday. This is one of only three of his Australian shows, with one in Melbourne and the other scheduled for the Basement in Sydney. Anthony David and his band present ‘The Atlanta Sessions # 1’, music that’s being coined as ‘the new Motown’. On his debut Australian tour, this rising star presents the songs from his new album Acey Duecy. Released by SoulBird Music, a collaboration between multi Grammy awarded singer India Arie and Universal Republic Records, Acey Duecy is the highly anticipated first release from the new label, a highlight of which is the duet with Arie on the single Words. With a soulful chemistry reminiscent of the great duos, Gaye and Terrel, Flack and Hathaway, Arie and David together is a classic artistic match.

A few quick questions with Anthony David: What inspired you to become a musician? Discovering the communicative powers music has. It was the best way for me to express my truth, and maybe convey feelings for others. How did your musical alliance with India Arie change your musical trajectory? We started music together, so it’s been the same path all along. What do you think is your strength as a producer? Allowing others the space to find their own strengths. How does being a producer influence your own songwriting and music production? Sometimes I start a song thinking it’s for someone else, and it turns out to be just another side of me. Why did you end up deciding to go solo?

Life’s a Pitch

It was just a natural evolution. I just played my part in the career of others. Why soul? Why not? You’ll be doing a workshop with some kids while you are here. Is this something you do regularly? Yes, I do a few in the city of Atlanta where I’m from. How do you think music can help difficult and challenging kids? It won’t help everyone, but you never know what makes someone ‘difficult and challenging’. It’s just one of many outlets, that may find someone where they are, and show them a different way. What are you working on at the moment? New album… As Above So Below What does the future hold for Anthony David – or at least the next 12 months Inhale, exhale.

The young Canadian has come a long way in a short amount of time, collaborating with Bassnectar, Pendulum, Datsik, DZ, Reso and Skism as well as running his own label Rottun Recordings.

I found myself listening to the instrumental versions more often than not. In 2004 I discovered drum and bass and was just in love with the basslines from guys like Noisia, Calyx, and Spor. I I came across a Vex’d album titled Degenerate late in 2005 when searching for fresh drum and bass. Tracks like Angels

Astro Boy Owing to their target audienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s notorious fidgetiness, the makers of animated features such as this sensibly stick to the golden tenet of storytelling, viz., â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;brevity is the soul of witâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. No two and a halfhour epics of self-indulgence for this mob. Which is a major selling point and, as far as Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m concerned, director David Bowers says more here in ninety-three minutes than Judd Apatow did in the onehundred and forty-six bloated minutes of his recent Funny People. Bowersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; film is smarter and more entertaining, too. Astro Boy first appeared in comic form in Japan, 1952,

drawn by the master Manga artist Osamu Tezuka (192889. He also created Jangaru Taitei, who would eventually morph into Disney Studiosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Lion King). In balancing the futureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excitingly fanciful with its potential horrorshow, the visuals are a bit like the Jetsons meet Fritz Langâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Metropolis (with a nod to Ridley Scottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gladiator and a cheeky reference to Marilynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dress being blown upwards by the air vent at her feet), while in tone the narrative is high-minded and big-hearted. After the death of his son, Dr Tenma (voiced by Nicholas Cage â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if only he would work more often off-camera) builds a robot replacement, Astro, and programs it with his boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory, resulting in the surrogate child believing, like Frankensteinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s monster, that it is human. Things go awry in the relationship, so the doctor consigns Astro to the scrapheap, an underworld of second-class citizens and superseded machines below

one), nothing in the movie rises above the execrable. I half expected as much from the previews, but approached it having read this the night before: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There is perhaps no better indication of the taste of an age than its sense of humour, when the most painful or serious subjects can be so lightly handled that the joke itself becomes catharticâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Peter Ackroyd). As a case study the film throws no light on that theory, for it is devoid of humour â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in fact I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recall ever sitting through a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;comedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in which the audience remained as quiet as the grave for so long. In one scene, Jon Favreau (partly responsible for the script) is being worked on by a masseuse while the sheet covering his privates rises with his erection, proving once and for all that there is nothing quite so sad as a tired, done to death joke being met with stony silence. Favreauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s co-writer and star of the fiasco is Vince Vaughn. His acting skills are minimal, but as a comedian Vaughn has got something going for him â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is it a soupçon of self deprecation under the Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;mtoo-big-for-this-room bluster? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hate to think that he has already peaked with Couples Retreat Remember that fantastic Green Wedding Crashers. The token black pair are unbelievable and Day song that goes â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the three white wives are all wanna be an American idiotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;? out of the Barbie mould â&#x20AC;&#x201C; size Well, these are the idiots that eight, shoulder length hair theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re singing about.

ALL ABOUT

STEVE

This is Australian director Joel Andersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s debut film. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a suspense-filled fright fest centred around the real place of Lake Mungo. Filmed in the style of a documentary, it traces the story of Australian teenager Alice Palmer who accidentally drowned in a weir while on holiday with her family. Her family believes her ghost is

haunting their suburban home and in trying to solve the mystery, they uncover the dark secrets that Alice withheld. The same secrets that ultimately cost her her life. Lake Mungo might sound like a teen flick â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but this clever film is not another one of those. Lake Mungo is a small budget thriller with several sequences that are really scary! ~ Lounge Cinema

the elitesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; floating city. Here Astro falls in with cute Cora and some other street kids who think that he is flesh and blood like them. Meantime, the villainous General Stone (Donald Sutherland) is making his bid for total power and, reflecting a mainstream trend in cinema for juvenilesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; intelligence to be shown more respect than adultsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (see Couples Retreat), he utters the confronting line â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;when positive and negative collide, negative always wins â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just look at human historyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Astro, a sweet and naĂŻve character directly related to the Little Miss Muffets of Harajuku, elicited a strong response from the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;tweens at the session I attended, and, for the oldies, a lot of mileage is got from the injured child image (think Michaelangeloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Pietaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;), including an incredibly potent near death moment. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve not found any backers, but I reckon this is the best cartoon of the year as yet, so why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you challenge yourself, give your disdain for animation the flick, join the kids and share the love â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in pretty short supply these days. ~ John Campbell

Kendrick Riley once told me that he goes through seed catalogues the way other people go through shopping catalogues. Just browsing through his market stall with its salad burnet, betel leaves and red turmeric, French sorrel and wild cucumber â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or korila â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you are witness to the passion of the man. He might well be one of Byron Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more recognisable faces â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and has just been made its president, taking over where the equally loveable Hugh Armstrong has left off. My first recollection of Kendrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stall was of its presentation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;dressing-upâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, as he refers to it. Beautifully arranged bunches and clusters of herbs I had never seen before, and in the background a tall man with a beard eloquently explaining to a customer their respective uses. You feel as if Kendrick has carefully cultivated all his life, so it comes as a surprise to learn that he only started the operation in 2000. He and his wife Marie had bought land at Georgica seven years previously but were immersed in their Brisbane lives, where Kendrick, whose background is in journalism, worked as a policy adviser for the Queensland government. His boss was Kevin Rudd (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC; a good bossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, comments Kendrick, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;and I never thought heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d make it into politics, being too brightâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;) Despite enjoying his work, however, Kendrick and Marie had always wanted to become herb-growers. They looked at various parts of Queensland and New South

Wales before settling on the Northern Rivers where there was already an established herb industry. Slowly they started planting, beginning with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;old standardsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; like galangal and lemongrass. Where they had lived in Brisbane was the West End with its Vietnamese and Thai restaurants so they were used to cooking with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the slightly unusual Asian herbsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;; at the time there were none of these to be found around here. What they started growing became rapidly prolific â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a saleable commodityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and so at the Channon Market where they had already started selling bales of hay for mulch they added small bunches

WINE SCIENCE ON THE RISE

Suddenly, discussions were being held as to the creation of a farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; market in Byron Bay; Kendrick, recognising an opportunity, became involved. The produce being offered at Byron was, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;more unusual and at the higherquality end.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Here, suddenly, was a market more discerning and more demanding, more sophisticated and better educated. Soon he was earning up to three times more than he had ever done

at Lismore â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not only that, he was learning. So many cooks come to the market â&#x20AC;&#x201C; both professional chefs and enthusiastic home cooks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and there is an ongoing exchange and sharing of information. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big gossip session about foodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, smiles Kendrick, who also revels in the social aspect and the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;lots of hugs â&#x20AC;&#x2DC; he receives on a regular basis. Out of the blue customers will bring him things â&#x20AC;&#x201C; old Lebanese grandmotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garlic, or betel leaves, or the edible hibiscus called Aibika introduced to him via the Seedsavers network. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an absolute university out thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, he tells me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;that just walks past your front doorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and so he will return home with a diary bulging with notes, or a handful of seeds. He has been humbly grateful for the drought of the last six years in that it has enabled him to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;learn slowly and make mistakesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;; eventually he would like to be earning enough so that Marie, a university lecturer in sculpture, can stop working. I ask Kendrick what he loves most about what he does. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The same thing I hate about itâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, he replies â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the peace and the quiet and the lonelinessâ&#x20AC;Ś the quality of the silence you never loseâ&#x20AC;Ś having the chance to take care of a little bit of country, the pleasure in all these tiny things spreading through the paddocksâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Kendrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choice of literature may be seed catalogues, but he has the soul of a poet.

SEAFOOD CLASSES

The Sydney Seafood School has been conducting cooking classes for twenty years now â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and to celebrate this milestone has attracted the creme de la creme of Australian chefs to hold special workshops and classes between November and February.

The program of classes can be viewed at www.sydneyfishmarket.com. au and can also be booked online.

34 October 20, 2009 The Byron Shire Echo

The 20th Annual Byron Bay Rugby Sevens was, as expected, an absolute funfair of top quality sport on the weekend. Over 350 athletes brought it to the Byron rec grounds in the quest for glory and cold hard cash in both the men’s and women’s events and the hundreds of spectators surrounding the fields were not disappointed. Making it into the finals Brisbane Fiji, (left) beat Island Breeze in a tight match. The Byron team gave it their all in the D grade Final, (left), but in the end, the hard fought win went to the X-Rats 2 over a committed Byron team 24 -21. In an edge-of-your-seat C grade Final, local team the Eltham Bats, (below left) finally went down to the superior on the day Decepticons 21-5. The women’s events pulled no punches and in the finals many a grown man oo-ed and ah-ed at the skill and talent of their female counterparts as

they gave as good as they got. The B grade final saw the Napier Pirates go down to the Nerang Bulls 21-14 and in a bone crunching women’s A grade final, Eastside Brisbane had a dominant win over the girls from the Papua New Guinea Defence Team, (right), 36-0 the final score belying the intensity of the game and the committment of the NG girls. The B grade Final was worthy of an A grade match with Brisbane Fiji getting home over Sunnybank, (right), 29-26. In the A grade Final, (below right), last years winners Urising Beach Resort went down to a star studded X-Rrats 1/ Australian Seven’s Team combination with local boy Kurt Mulcahy showing great form. Possibly the best A grade Final to date, a half time score of 12 each, quickly turned around in the second half with the X-Rats, all number 15, (below) coming home stronger to win 38-21.

The band, the Round Mountain Girls, added to the prize handouts, donating a shirt and a CD, as well throwing their support behind the event. Organisers gave a special thanks to former Women’s World Surfing Champion, Pauline Menczer, for her hard work selling tickets on the day, raising more money for the cause by auctioning herself for a private surf lesson and adding to the fun by drawing the prizes. It was a wonderful effort from all concerned including Mick Fanning, Layne Beachley, Pritamo Aherndt, Jamahl Grey from Rhythm Surfwear, Ben Bugden from Tracks surfing magazine, Adam Melling

from Oakley and Pete from the Brunswick Heads Surf Shop. The raffle, which has been running over the last three months, was a great success and raised more than $6,500 towards Edyn’s ongoing medical costs. Winners of the raffle were: 1st J Perry Alstonville, 2nd Col Buckland Mullumbimby, 3rd Wade Kelly Ballina, 4th Malone Mullumbimby and 5th James Stokes Gold Coast.

2009 Australian Young Masters winner Andrew Brown.

Last week saw Rockdale, Sydney, host a welcome revival of the Australian Young Masters tournaments. While the most prestigious national junior title events are held each January, the Young Masters events have their own cachet, being invitational roundrobin tournaments – a type of event rarely seen in Australia yet ubiquitous on the Grandmaster circuit in Europe.

5.Nc3 e5 6.Nf5!? An ambitious change from the almost universal 6.Ndb5. 6...d5! 7.exd5 Bxf5 8.dxc6 bxc6 9.Qf3 Qd7! More accurate than 9...Qc8 when White can try 10.Ba6! with the idea 10...Qxa6 11.Qxf5 Bd6 12.Bh6!!. 10.Bg5 e4 11.Qe2 Material gain is White’s raison d’etre in this line, so the more sober 11.Qf4 Bd6 12.Qd2 has never been tried. 11...Be7! 12.Bxf6 Consistent, but 12.Rd1 Qe6 13.Qc4 is safer. 12...Bxf6 13.Nxe4 0-0! 14.Nxf6+ gxf6 15.Qf3? Now White’s position collapses immediately. After 15.Qd2! Rfe8+ 16.Kd1 White can hang on to his extra pawn, although after 16...Qc7!, a move devised by Russian GM Volzhin, Black retains excellent attacking chances. 15...Rfe8+ 16.Be2 Bg4 17.Qxf6 Rxe2+ 18.Kf1 Qd2! The rest of the game shows only that 8-year-old Smirnov has not yet learned about the appropriate time for resignation. 19.h4 Rd8 20.g3 Rd6 21.Qg5+ Qxg5 22.hxg5 Rdd2 23.Rh4 Rxf2+ 24.Kg1 Rg2+ 25.Kf1 Rdf2+ 26.Ke1 Rxc2 27.Kf1 Rcf2+ 28.Ke1 Rxb2 29.Kf1 Rxg3 30.Re1 Bh3+ 31.Rxh3 Rxh3 32.Re8+ Kg7 33.Kg1 Rhh2 34.Rd8 Rhd2 35.Rxd2 Rxd2 36.Kf1 Kg6 37.Ke1 Rxa2 38.Kd1 Kf5 39.g6 fxg6 0-1

CAPRICORN: Plenty of offers you can capitalize on during the next fortnight, though in the war of conservative vs. cutting edge, innovation will score more points than caution. What you know is always important, but it’s who you know and how you handle them that makes this week fizz. AQUARIUS: Thinking to upgrade? Do it. But shop alone, because input from others could be confusing. Creative efforts will be appreciated this week, especially anything forward-thinking or to do with communication technologies. If Mars makes ripples on the home front, keep ego on a choke chain. PISCES: Your presentation and persuasive skills are peaking this week, so whatever you’re selling be proactive and take it to the streets. On the inner level it’s time to make peace, forgive and let go past grievances in preparation for next year’s tremendously beneficial Piscean planetary lineup.

We’re not great fans of McDonald’s, as you may have noticed, but we’d like to point out there is a fraudulent letter in circulation regarding a McDonald’s purported drive-through order scam. ‘“Robert Trugabe” is not a McDonald’s Australia employee and never has been,’ says the company. The offending item is certainly all the rage on the internet.

The Byron Shire News gets the Mixed Metaphor of the Week Award for the first sentence of its front page story on holiday letting, in which a fuse is lit
