Crime spree hits Bangalow and Byron Bay Eve Jeffery & Victoria Cosford

was still a crime scene late Monday. Other businesses in the town were attacked in the early hours – Bangalow Hair had a small amount of damage to a rear entrance when an attempt to jimmy the door failed when the perpetrator was unable to break the lock, and staff at Utopia Café spent the morning tidying up after thieves ransacked the business searching for cash. Last Thursday, between 6.30pm and 7am the next day, thieves forced their way inside a clothing store on Byron Street at Bangalow and stole $180,000 of designer brand clothing. The brands stolen include TRBD, Citizen Jeans, Gypsy 05, Replay and Fwy. Anyone who can help should contact Byron Bay Police via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Bangalow fell victim to a crime spree in the early hours of Monday morning in a series of events that has left locals shaken and traumatised. A delivery driver at Bangalow Newsagency was accosted and threatened with a machete a short time after he arrived for work at the Byron Street business, when a man in a balaclava appeared out of nowhere and demanded the keys to the safe. The assailant followed the driver onto the premises and terrorised him before cutting phone lines and threatening to tie the worker up. The victim, who is a local wishing to remain anonymous, managed to escape when the armed man forced him to retrieve his mobile phone from his vehicle. The victim Bay café cleaned out Barely open five months, the Afdrove away before calling police. The staff member and the owners rican Village Café in Jonson Street, of the business spent several hours Byron Bay, was recently broken into. with the police and the premises Unaware that they had been recorded

on the RSL surveillance camera, the three thieves ‘cleaned the place out’, according to owners Martina Winch and Manie Ackah. Damage was extensive and has been devastating, as well as costly, to them both. Much of their stock is sourced outside of Byron Bay from places like Brisbane and so the couple had to close the premises for several days for re-stocking. Not only was food and coffee stolen but also the equipment Manie uses in his regular live music sessions at the café – and despite its subsequent retrieval by police, much of it was damaged or broken. ‘It’s been a really stressful time’, Martina told The Echo. ‘We were just getting on our feet. We didn’t think that something like this would happen in a town like Byron Bay. The owners declined to press charges, believing that the offenders,who evidence suggests were under the influence of drugs, ‘need to be rehabilitated rather than sent to jail...’

Despite a staff report which called for a policy of ‘zero tolerance’ towards illegal development Byron Shire councillors resolved last week to take a gradual approach to sorting out the issues. Council is also looking at establishing a development control plan (DCP) for Affordable Rural Housing which will look at options such as expanded housing, attached dual occupancies, rural workers’ dwellings, multiple occupancies, holiday cabins, studios, and camping grounds or manufactured home estates. As a first step Council will write to all property owners on its unlawful dwelling list ‘to inform them that Council believes they have unlawful dwellings, and request them to respond and provide Council with any approvals or information they may have in relation to approvals’.

Affordable housing plan Any concessions to rural landowners under a DCP for affordable housing would require ‘a condition to be placed on title that these concessions are for the purpose of providing affordable housing and must be relinquished if the use ceases’. The Draft DCP would include a sunset clause of two years for receiving applications. Mayor Jan Barham told The Echo, ‘Council is very aware of the need for affordable housing in the rural areas and with the known unapproved dwellings we will consider variations to current planning options to provide the opportunities for approval. ‘The issue is not just about regulation, Council must consider the social and safety requirements of the community and how we can provide additional housing for those who are in need.’ In recent times Council has been accused of hypocrisy over its stance on illegal development – failing to enforce its zoning regulations in relation to

urban holiday letting yet at the same time cracking down on illegal rural dwellings. In a related matter, Council also set its compliance priorities for 2010. Listed as ‘Very High’ are any development, action, works or activity that places people’s lives at risk, including places of shared accommodation, unapproved dwellings and unapproved use of dwellings; any development, action, works or activity that causes or is likely to cause environmental harm or pollution; and dangerous and/or uncontrolled dogs, livestock on public roads. High priorities are an audit of a percentage of development applications for compliance with consent conditions; companion animals education and management strategies; noise disturbance, public nuisance from premises, non compliance with alcohol free zones; traffic and parking enforcement; unauthorised events, including ‘doof ’ and ‘rave’ parties; camping in public streets and reserves.

High non compliance A staff report on the compliance priorities noted: ‘Despite an active compliance program and publicity given to some court matters, there is still a high level of non compliance in the Shire across a range of issues. In matters of illegal development, for example, there appears to be a culture that focuses on who lodged the complaint and the inconvenience of being investigated, rather than genuine concern about the failure to obtain approvals or consent which created the issue in the first place.’ In 2008/2009 Council received 609 requests for compliance action – 172 for illegal building works, 96 for illegal business operation, 112 about illegal land clearing, 156 about general illegal development, 29 about illegal earthworks, eight about fire safety issues, 33 about illegal land use and three about swimming pool issues.

Another successful Fresh Chords event was held in Brunswick Heads on Saturday night. The Memorial Hall in Fingal Street was alight with colour, music and a wide spectrum of high school aged performers including Eleea Navarro, Katie Kirkpatrick, Lifeline, Hanna Sidoti and Maddy Monacelli, Shae Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Tool, Alexandra Dickson, Djuaan Cockatoo and Rtiztik HipHop. The event, MCd by Justin Fenwick, also presented several short performances by members of the Spaghetti Circus. The event this time around provided an opportunity to let the many younger kids take a turn onstage with Lifeline performers Patrick Hetherington, Jade Degan, Louie Swain and Anatole Serret, showing just what a bunch of year seveners can do. Local youth are trying to work up to regular monthly events, each organised by a different group of young people and the positive response from Fresh Chords is promising for future events. The next youth event at the hall with be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bless tha Beatzâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, a Hip Hop night organised by Rtiztikâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tanina Millis and Connor Jones, on Lifeline, with singer/guitarist Patrick Hetherington, showed to the crowd at Fresh Chords just what Year 7 kids are up to.

Proposed Optus mobile tower draws residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fury Residents living in the Old Bangalow Road/Coopers Shoot area of Byron Bay are expressing their concern at a proposed Optus mobile phone tower. The tower would be 40 metres high and located beside the water tower at the junction of Bangalow and Old Bangalow Roads. Among a litany of objections are included the fact that there had been no community consultation; the visual impact of the tower; potential damage to community health and well-

being as well as to the environment; and property values. As one resident pointed out, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as if it will be just a stick!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The situation has been likened to the proposed telecommunications facility destined for Coolamon Scenic Drive in Mullumbimby earlier this year. Residents of that area submitted a comprehensive report which included an analysis of the environmental effects, letters of support and public petitions and were eventually successful in preventing the project from going ahead. According to one of its

spokespeople, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Optus is following a rigorous assessment process for its Bangalow Road site including a formal process of consultation run by the local council. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This includes letters to adjoining landowners, advertisements in the paper and signage placed at the site. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The public is able to submit comments to Council as part of the consultation process and in addition Optus is happy to receive direct feedback or questions from the community via a dedicated email address â&#x20AC;&#x201C; communityrelations@optus.

com.au. We will respond to feedback and questions from the community in relation to our proposal. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We have assessed multiple locations around the area and we believe this site represents the best opportunity to strike a balance between customer demand for improved mobile and broadband coverage in the area and the preferences of individual residents.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Byron Shire Council was unavailable for comment. Residents have until December 9 to lodge their objections.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Why not consider swapping that outgrown childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s toy for a vintage hand-painted teapot for Mum or a garden shovel for Dad? Swapping saves not only the energy to produce a new product, but helps reduce unwanted items ending up in landfill.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

The swap market will also see the staging of a local seed swap with Byron Hinterland Seed Savers, composting demonstrations with the North East Waste Forum and BBQ fundraiser supplied by the Mullumbimby Community Garden catering team.

Grail Quest

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

AJOURNEY INTOTHE Spiritual Science OF2UDOLF3TEINER

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.

www.echo.net.au

Some of the themes explored in the course are: The Quest for Meaning. The Elements. The Temperaments. Sacred Geometry. The Origins of the Earth & Humanity. The Evolution of Consciousness. Christology. Mystery Schools & Mystery Centres. The Birth of Modern Consciousness in the Renaissance. The Search for the Holy Grail. Life Phases: an Exploration of Biography. 8 week Introductory Course: $600 Monday 4.30 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 7.30pm and Wednesday 4.30 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 7.30pm Plus 2 Saturdays 9.30 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 3:30pm Commencing 8th February Venue: Cape Byron Rudolf Steiner School, McGettigans Lane, Ewingsdale Enquiries: Kristy Brake 0431 833 959 or Gerry Josephson 6684 8280 or (mob) 0406 788 050

Bluesfest takes green hat trick The Byron Bay Bluesfest has received the International Greener Festival award for 2009, the third year running. The award comes from A Greener Festival Ltd (www. AgreenerFestival.com), a UK based not-for-profit organisation, which acknowledges the efforts of certain festivals to reduce their environmental impact and promote green awareness. Fifteen UK and international festivals were the recipients of the 2009 Greener Festival Award for their efforts in promoting environmentally friendly music festivals. These included Glastonbury (England), T-inThe-Park (Scotland), Atlanta Jazz Festival (USA), Bonnaroo (USA) and Peats Ridge Festival (Australia). Amie Green, Australian awards coordinator with A Greener Festival, said, ‘Bluesfest do an incredible job year after year with their amazing initiatives. These can be as simple as the sensible, reusable fluoro-vests used by the Bluesfest Green Team and their BinYa-Butt program, through to major initiatives for traffic and transport. By offering comprehensive, sustainable public transport options, Bluesfest does a lot more than many, many festivals to lower carbon emissions – obviously a big fo-

I do believe you have to give people viable alternatives that are environmentally sound, the opportunity to do the right thing. Fundamentalism won’t save the planet – awareness and action will.’ The Greener Festival Award is based on a 56 point checklist which covers green office policies, energy use and carbon reduction, travel and transport, support for green initiatives, waste management, recycling,

water use and environmental protection and noise pollution. Additionally, the Awards organisers have a team of environmental auditors who visit festivals to assess environmental good practice and effective green policies. When Bluesfest moves to its permanent new site at Tyagarah Tea Tree Farm, it intends to install wind and solar power, plus biodiesel fuel.

Farewell to the Old Fox 1942-2009 Photographer and artist Stuart Owen Fox, 67, died last week of a stroke in Amsterdam only a short time after his marriage to his beloved Marjolein. He was a well-known identity around Byron Shire for many years and produced a phenomenally large portfolio of good work. Born on March 25, 1942, in Southern California, Fox’s first job was as cub reporter on a San Fernando daily newspaper, where he learnt quickly he was also expected to take pictures. In 1962 he moved to New York to become a professional photographer. There he met renowned photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson, whose recommendation led to Fox travelling with Nobel Prize winning author Pearl S Buck to Japan to take the photos for her book The People of Japan. Later on he became part of the movement opposed to America’s involvement in the Vietnam War. When he was called up for service, Fox moved to Europe, where he stayed for 12 years. He continued his work with the anti-war movement and Denmark gave him citizenship. A commission from a Norwegian shipping company for 16,000 of Fox’s images to display on its fleet led him to Australia in search of beautiful locations. He settled at Fox Farm at Myocum. Two of his images were published in A Day in the Life of Australia in 1981. With Andy Park and Susanna Clarke, Fox published Beyond Black and White in 1995, a collec-

tion of 250 images from 150 photographers. In 2000 Fox moved to Cooktown to escape his allergy to ticks. About this time he abandoned his camera and took up ‘direct digital imaging’ – placing plants and animals on a flatbed scanner and thence into a computer to create vividly detailed pictures. From there he moved briefly to Queanbeyan before returning to live in Mullumbimby and setting up a studio in the CLIC Business Village. He called it the world headquarters of the CIA-HQ (Computer Inspired Artist’s Hind Quarters) and DDI (Direct Digital Imaging Lab). At the time (2006), Fox said he had retired and become a scientist. The walls of DDI Lab were cov-

ered with vivid prints – a giant orb spider with a fly, seahorses in an underwater dance, bright flowers lit up by hidden optic fibres. Fox’s last move took him to Amsterdam. His friend, Mullumbimby doctor Michael Pelmore, recalls: ‘Stuart presented himself with a freshly printed visiting card, a photo of himself and his motorbike. On the back of the card were the words, “I used to be famous.” ‘His tangential view of the world was a fascination to me. As with his photographs, he was always seeking the “other light” in any problem he encountered. ‘He waxed lyrical, satirical and quizzical, jumping into

any philosophical debate with the nonchalance of a matador in a paddock of heifers. ‘His marriage to Marjolein was wonderful but cut tragically short by illness. My saddest recollection of Stuart was after he announced that he would return to Marjolein in Amsterdam and that he wanted to destroy his film archive. He had made up his mind. ‘We ceremoniously burnt all his precious negatives and images in our garden, in silence.’ A number of Fox’s photographs of artist Brett Whiteley are held by the Lismore Regional Gallery and one is on the wall of The Echo’s Mullum reception area. His work as a satirist lives on at http://byronbayvisuals.blogspot.com.

Living Together Gathering aims for harmony The fourth Living Together Gathering will be held at Belongil Fields, Byron Bay, from December 11 to 14. ‘A new approach to stimulating community spirit and empowerment towards meeting the challenges of our time, these gatherings bring the local community together to experience what an amazing collection of creative people we are,’ said organisers in a press

release. ‘Through this gathering process with its offerings of displays, presentations, workshops, ritual ceremonies, performances, films, music and dance, all freely given, we have the opportunity to know more about what people are doing that will help our community to live together into the future in harmony, security and sustainable abundance.

theories can be incredibly attractive, especially when there are also real reasons to be suspicious of governments. But on The Times UK website Rob Boyd made a good point: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If the governments of the world want to collude to raise taxes why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they just collude to raise taxes? Why go to the enormous bother of inventing a fictitious global enviromental issue?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get some good answers to those questions in coming weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Michael McDonald, editor

He emerged from the chaos of the last fortnight more or less by accident, and then only after Joe Hockey disqualified himself from serious consideration by answering â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Maybeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to what was always a yes-no question on climate change. There is much sympathy for Hockey on the basis that he was always a reluctant candidate, persuaded to stand in order to save the party from

Labor had done in 2003 with Mark Latham, the only option was to kick high and chase and hope for a lucky bounce. It was unquestionably what Sir Humphrey Appleby would have called a courageous decision; according to the polls Abbott was the least popular candidate on offer, with views shared by less than one third of the electorate. He was certainly the choice of the bedrock, rust-

At least there will now be clear points of difference on just about every issue, and in some ways this is a good thing for politics in general. by Mungo MacCallum complete destruction, and then promptly pushed over a cliff by an ungrateful party room. But in fact Hockey may be the lucky one. There is some evidence that Nick Minchin and his fellow terrorists had planned to use Hockey as a sacrificial lamb: he would become leader and save some seats at the 2010 poll, after which he would be tossed aside like a worn-out sock and Abbott would take over for the more winnable 2013 election. Instead the roles have been reversed, and Abbott could well suffer the fate of so many of his predecessors. It is rare indeed for losing Liberal leaders to be given a second chance. Still, once Minchin and Alan Jones made it clear they would wreck the whole party rather than bow to Malcolm Turnbull and his views on climate change, and then Hockey refused to abandon his principles â&#x20AC;&#x201C; well, not all of them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there was no choice left: as

ed-on, grassroots, heartland (choose your metaphor) of the party, but they were the ones who had nowhere else to go, except possibly to the Nationals or to fringe independents; they certainly werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to vote Labor. To win back government the Libs need the middle ground, which has never been Abbottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s preferred territory. But as he says, at least there will now be clear points of difference on just about every issue, and in some ways this is a good thing for politics in general. In particular, it means that the government has to pull its collective finger out and start working up climate change as a political priority. For more than a year it has been allowed to drift, allowing the deniers, rent-seekers and loonies to make the running, and as a result public enthusiasm for action has dwindled. If it had remained at its earlier level Minchinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Al Qaeda would never have gained the

acquiescence of the backbench for scepticism and rejection. Now Abbott has put himself forward as the caped (well, speedoed) crusader who will save us all from the greenie communist scourge. Kevin Rudd and Penny Wong will have to get back in the field and this time run a well-planned and consistent campaign to explain the science, the threat and the way to meet it. It actually doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter if the average punter does not understand exactly how an emissions trading scheme works; the average punter doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t understand exactly how a television set works either, but television sets are regarded as necessities in most households. Ruddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ETS may look a bit like a black and white HMV set, but at least itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a start; we can upgrade to the HD flat screen plasma digital model as time and circumstance allow. The important thing is to allay the doubts and fears in the electorate which Abbott, aided by the above mentioned deniers, rent-seekers and loonies, will be seeking to exploit. Given that the overwhelming mood in the electorate is still for action of some kind, that should not be too hard. Abbottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s formula â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that any cost can be either avoided altogether or deferred â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is neither defensible nor credible. Rudd has now missed his Copenhagen deadline; he can afford to postpone his projected double dissolution election until the second half of next year, when it will be the best fit both technically and politically. That gives him plenty of time to restore rationality to the debate â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and for Abbott to become the third Liberal leader to self-destruct over the issue.

When will the nightmare end?

ÀœŽi˜Êi>`Ê+Õ>ÀÀÞÊ >À̅ܜÀŽÃ

It’s been over three months now. How much further is resolution? Jai Drummond Morcom will not be with his family this year for Christmas and I ask myself when does this nightmare end. All my objective to date has been to find out what happened to my son and, in responsible human behaviour, deal with it accordingly. It has been soul destroying to see the way this incident has been dealt with on so many levels, with little compassion or respect for anyone deeply affected by Jai’s death. There are persons responsible. They are not coming forward. If a conscience exists, they will carry guilt for life somewhere within, so what are they getting protected from?

As a community how has this been dealt with? Is it socially acceptable to brawl at school and a death results? Why have there not been more questions asked to the Minister of Education, who never got round to offering condolences to the family? Questions to the principal as to how a death occurred and why? Why have the police not acted swiftly to get to the truth? Letters to the NSW State Coroner in Sydney, who is now handling Jai’s case, expressing your views on the incident, would be helpful. I warned the principal three days before the Drill Hall fighting that trouble was brewing with the boys due to the handling of Jai’s death by the

school and the police. The next day after the fighting, two of Jai’s friends were attacked by carloads of youths from Mullum. What are we learning from Jai’s death? There are still many issues for the youth to deal with. The first is for those responsible for Jai’s death to be made accountable. The message cannot be that this is socially acceptable. Next will be to implement changes within this community so it never happens to your child – and it could have. Early on this year a boy at Mullum High a year 8 student got taken away by ambulance with concussion, someone put his head into a brick wall. He survived. Jai was not so lucky. Violence with youth and

why it happens has to be seriously addressed within all communities. First and foremost that has to be why it happens within your school. There are still students and parents with information about Jai’s death who have not come forward. Please, I urge you to see the bigger picture. My son does not get a second chance. A Truth 4 Jai hotline has been set up for any information of interest. You can text, ring or leave a message. This is strictly in confidence. The number is 0468 966 912. Also, any ideas and support are greatly appreciated. Email Stephen-drummond44@hotmail.com. Thanks.

event. It was such a pleasure to be able to move from event to event in Tim’s beautiful Magic Bus which gave delight to young and old. I saw neither police nor security and people appeared happy and free the way it should be at all music festivals. Perhaps the increase in police and security is directly related to the pecuniary return, I don’t know but if that is the case we are even more indebted to the team behind the Mullumbimby Music Festival. Well done team!

with Council constitutes ‘community discussion’, and would not accept my invitation, as a resident very much on the spot under the proposed tower, to come and discuss the matter on the spot. The tower would be in the centre of our outlook from every window in the living and bedroom areas of our home, and so close that we could almost reach out and touch it. But don’t worry. Ms Harris says that where she lives they even have them on the roof! As it is proposed to be sited at the junction of Old and New Bangalow Roads, where there is an increasing volume of traffic, it would also be a dominant and dangerously attractive roadside feature, as few drivers would have ever seen a tower so close up. For everyone driving into Byron on the road from Bangalow, as an increasing number of people do, it would be the most prominent object in their first view of the Bay area from Hayters Hill. Not ‘screened by

A big thank you to everybody that supported the Mullum Music festival this year. Our many generous sponsors, including the wonderful Jilly Jackson from the lantern parade in Lismore and Mark at Mullum Hire (previously not thanked), the volunteers, the media, the musicians, production team, the venues and venue operators, Mayor Jan Barham and Council staff, the people of Mullumbimby and everybody that came along as an audience member. We really enjoy putting the event on and look forward to seeing you again next year.

The cleanup is unbelievable – they cleaned up rubbish dumped by the Blues folk this year. They give free tickets to all the nearby residences.

■ Paul Spooner, in mourning Splendour’s move to Woodford (Letters, December 1), asks, ‘How different are we as a community to the hippie and surfing generations that made the region their home?’ The answer, Paul, is, not much, if a little slower off the mark. When organisers planning the 1973 Aquarius Festival rolled into Mullumbimby expecting a massive influx of festivalgoers to be eagerly welcomed, the self-confessed ‘drop-outs’ already in residence called a meeting and said, no thanks. Nick Shand and others suggested they ‘find another town to recycle’. Sunrisers may have appreciated a similar early opportunity.

Harsh intervention Back in August I wrote to The Echo regarding the plight of Alice Springs town camp residents. This morning residents decided not to proceed with an appeal against the Federal Court’s decision last week to uphold the validity of the

as a generation divide. Some aging boomers, once hipsters holidaying psychedelically at Finsbury Park and HaightAshbury or bar hopping pubs of The Push, now yearn for a safe seaside life as the youth of Australia refuse to go gently into the good night. But the loss is as much about an economic divide as it is a difference in years. Byron has a very high incidence of people working in the creative industries – particularly music. Music is now copied and distributed on the internet through legal channels such as iTunes or illegal ones such as BitLord. Opportunity costs have plummeted. Creators increasingly make their reputation through word of digital mouth – online chatter and Twitter and Facebook doodlings build reputations silently. Who takes any notice of broadcast advertising? Big recording contracts for a few lucky ones with a few dominant industry players are last millennium. Artefacts such as the Recording Industry of America and Universal Studios use the courts to control the distribution of music and film. Sue a teenager bit torrenting in his or her back room, outlaw a peer-to-peer software provider, go after the internet service providers. Xerxes whipping the Hellespont. Belongil home owner, building the climate change wall.

The youth of Byron and Australia, and their big event supporters, realise the future of the digital economy. The business model is to make content instantly accessible and distributed globally for a cheap price, even for free. Contracts of the Copyleft movement prevent freeloaders from taking works without contributing to the creative intellectual commons. Rip, mix, burn with big bandwidth and even bigger download limits is the digital economy. One terabyte download a month for all at a speed of at least 12Mbps, to become a universal right. Creators make little from online sales. But from events, the live gigs both big and small, they make enough money to buy that precious commodity that makes one truly rich: time. Time to ponder, time to draft, time to jam, and time to cut a new label. Yelgun was too far away, let alone Queensland. Byron needs more events. It needs a big event venue capable of holding 25,000 a day. It needs an events policy that gives DAs to promoters so they can plan infrastructure for the future and not have to come, cap in hand, for approval each year. To tune out and turn off is not to drop out. It’s time for the Byron economy to plug in, turn on and boot up.

federal government’s 40-year leases over the town camps. The leases enable the federal government to take control of Aboriginal land for 40 years, during which time residents will be alienated from participating in decision making about what happens in the town camps, impacting on their fundamental rights of self-determination and control over communal lands. For over 12 months, the Indigenous Affairs Minister, Jenny Macklin, ‘negotiated’ with Tangentyere Council over the terms of the proposed 40-year leases. Throughout

the negotiations, town camp residents tried to negotiate some meaningful form of involvement in decision-making about matters which directly affect them. In May this year, Minister Macklin threatened the town camps with compulsory acquisition if they did not agree to the 40-year leases. Faced with the prospect of compulsory acquisition, the Housing Associations signed the 40-year leases, but not without highlighting that they were being signed under duress. In essence, the Federal

Melting ice, melting theories ■ Hey, conspiracy theorists and

climate change sceptics, have I got a conspiracy for you! Human caused climate change is real but the big polluters, who stand to lose lots of money, decide to mount a media and internet campaign designed to make the public doubt the facts, so that they won’t push the politicians to change the status quo. Despite the fact that the international scientific community is overwhelmingly united, they fund a small group of scientists to say it isn’t so! Another conspiracy? The earth is round! But no one will believe it. Parissa Bouas

Byron Bay ■ Re letter by Andy McTavish of December 1: his statement that ‘As any primary student will tell you, floating ice will displace its own volume’ is totally incorrect and furthermore shows a total lack of knowledge on the subject. He should know that the ice is buoyed up by a force equal to the weight (not the volume) of the displaced fluid; this principle is applicable to both floating and submerged bodies. Archimedes formulated the principle of ‘buoyancy’ in 300 BC. Mr McTavish has just proved Archimedes wrong and invented his own explanation for the same principle. Has Mr McTavish forgotten that part of the iceberg is floating above water? The specific gravity of salt water and the specific gravity of the iceberg are different and the two components will react in accordance with the laws of physics. Secondly, Mr McTavish is referring to his experiment with ice from tap water into a glass of fresh water when in fact he is referencing his letter to the

www.echo.net.au

subject of icebergs (mostly pure water ) in a salt sea. Mr Mac Tavish can easily redo the ice in water experiment at home again and take a completely full glass of water and drop a few ice cubes in it and he will see if any water spills over. I guarantee he will see exactly that. The above experiment will be the equivalent experiment of ‘Shelf Ice’, the ice that comes sliding off the land mass or the edge of the ice plateau. That ice is not at all floating in the sea until it breaks off – that ice is an independent total quantity addition. That ice will add almost its total volume to the seawater just as the ice cubes would add to the full glass of water. Most of shelf ice is almost pure ice and has no salt in it. Finally, Mr McTavish should realise that a floating iceberg when melted would increase in fluid volume by 2.6 %. The simplified calculation is: If volume floating below sea level is Vo, Volume (melted) = Vo multiplied by Ocean Water Density and divided by Unsalted Water Density. That translates to Vo x 1.026/1000 = 1.026 and that is a 2.6% increase in volume. I believe that Mr McTavish should go back to adult classes and catch up on his Physics, then he can possibly have an open debate.

ately lowered statistics of up to 150 years ago, and raised them for the current era to show atmospheric warming where there was none, exposed the basis of the carbon tax scheme as a fraud. Soon after this story went viral on the internet, the father of carbon trading, Al Gore, reportedly ran in panic from demonstrators at one of his Chicago book-signing appearances. Al is believed to have gained the idea from an old college professor, who later recanted his belief in the warming theory. Al later took it forward to a Nobel Prize. Nevertheless, the real causes of atmospheric climate change seem more obviously linked to solar wind and sunspot activity. Ocean temperature rises are of concern, but these are more likely linked to increased undersea geothermal activity, increased tectonic plate agitation, and possibly recent increases in Earth’s Chandler Wobble, all statistically demonstrable in the last few years. Yet none of these phenomena are linked to atmospheric CO2 levels. The current flawed idea of global warming would have us paying rather a lot for nothing that would really change climate change. Let’s hope Tony Abbott can come up with betO T Baggio ter solutions. MIEAust CPEng L Johanson Tyagarah Main Arm

■ The climate change issue has

suddenly changed the dynamics of Australian politics, and maybe our future. Though The Age had the ClimateGate story on the 30th, the political acknowledgement has not been overt. The hacked leaked emails that revealed consulting UN scientists had deliber-

In predictable irascible fashion, the paranoid conservative climate change deniers are resonating among some of the uninformed and ‘head in the sand’ population. Aided and abetted by media commentator ‘shock jocks’ and arch-conservative media journalists, these forces are ■

whipping up hysteria as the Copenhagen Climate Conference draws near, inferring that national governments world wide will cede sovereignty and taxes to the right wing conspiracy – ‘One World Government’. The Australian political conservative landscape is being reshaped by these forces. Scientific rationality and evidence based facts of climate change and global warming will now take a back seat to faith based religion, as this has been borne out recently by the latest manoeuvrings of the Liberal/National Coalition parties. By any political standard this is a backward step, to more hard line conservative policies unreflective of the increasing urgency of climate change, and the required political action needed. Unfortunately the political shift is in the wrong direction. Nick Griffin, leader of the British National Party (fascist & racist) newly elected to the European Parliament, is an avowed climate change denier, and will be attending the Copenhagen conference to the chagrin of many British parliamentarians. Even arch-conservative media mogul Rupert Murdoch who traditionally represents the big end of town business interests and profits is cautious in acknowledging that there must be a proper scientific risk management approach in dealing with this issue. So is this about taking the appropriate urgent action, based on objective scientific evidence to protect the planet and life as we know it now, or will it be hijacked by the paranoid climate deniers?

Thank you

â&#x2013; Oh my goodness! Well, bring on Macaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, I say. It matches the tacky, plastic advertising board that is supposed to be our Christmas tree. What are these people thinking? I have never seen an uglier Christmas tree in my life! Did this really cost over $10,000? I for one would have been insulted and outraged if Council had paid for this. What made Byron beautiful and unique is slowly being eroded away by greed. There are people with nothing to eat locally and further afield. Why couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they string fairy lights in trees already there? Shame, shame, shame.

Federal â&#x2013; I was on the school bus Friday morning listening to the kids screaming, yelling, swearing, f....ing this and that and then... â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The tree, the tree, oh look the tree, oh yeah, merry Christmas, cooool!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; etc etc. Turned the liâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;l monsters into angels in a second. It was a delight. Thank you Byron Shire and Byron United for making it happen again. Just what all small country town communities need. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hope the tree cheer turns the hoolis into angels too.

It is not in dispute that the Christmas tree in Byron Bay is possibly the ugliest installation that I have ever encountered, irrespective of any misguided Christmas cheer that I might possess. However this year, the tree symbolically takes the celebration of capitalism to even greater heights by providing as decoration various signage advertising local businesses. Aesthetically this is a grotesque and it should be removed forthwith.

Meanwhile down at Main Beach, majestic pines gently invite hungry holidayers to enjoy their generous shade while admiring the brilliant bay. Surely a couple of grand could see one of these trees transformed by night into a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;realâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Christmas tree. Ten grand could have them all colourfully alight creating a magical Christmas night walk. Well, maybe next time.... Merry shopping and drinking everyone!

â&#x2013; A big thanks from the depths of our pockets must go to the humble, noble and industrious folk who so graciously saved Byron town centre from a joyless Christmas season by erecting what is surely the greenest and biggest, marketing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; oops I mean Christmas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; tree that the Byron clocktower has ever seen! To stand beneath this modern wonder is to behold the crowning jewel of our humanityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long evolutionary road from oceans to caves to great shopping malls (and also risk being pushed out in front of a truck by a mob of schoolies crossing the road). Now thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $10,000 well spent!

Mandy gives birth to more paintings Story & photo Lou Beaumont

Comic and artist Mandy Nolan has been busy making bodies. Her latest creations are her daughter Ivy, now 7 months, and a new body of works that are to be exhibited this month. It’s safe to say that Nolan is better known locally for her comic prowess than her art but that has not always been the case, with painting being her first passion. However, she feels the two paths have similar processes. ‘In a way, painting is so similar to comedy and performing. With comedy I have to continually respond to the audience and what’s happening in the present, and painting calls for the same openness and responsiveness. ‘The paintings in my next exhibition are all a bit naïve – like me! The naïvety of a small town girl comes through in the works, just as it so often does in my comic work. I have followed about six ideas through for these works, and I couldn’t work fast enough to get the ideas out.’ Which is just as well, considering she painted in her Mul-

Mandy Nolan, with daughter Ivy, completed her new collection of paintings, including, from left, Flying with Night Ponies and Small Town Girl, with her hands well and truly full.

lumbimby home in between (and during) caring for her newborn and the rest of her family, not to mention maintaining her other busy careers. The canvases are filled with bold colours and figures, plenty of movement, and lyrical themes. Nolan says there was no long, protracted thought process, the quick brushstrokes

a testament to that. ‘I just love painting. I love being at home with my little baby, painting away. I find having a baby a really creative process, an exhibition has followed each of my births. Ivy’s with me all the time, she’s like a new appendage. ‘My painting is just very emotive, I don’t have a draw-

ing background, although this exhibition does also have small and delicate drawings with watercolour.’ You can see Nolan’s latest collection at Art Piece Gallery, Stuart Street, Mullumbimby, from Friday December 11 until Christmas. The opening night is on December 11, 6pm-9pm.

Women asked to share their birth stories Women of the Northern Rivers are being encouraged to share their own birth stories as part of a new project titled Stories from the Red Tent: A Book of Birthing Tales, coordinated by organisers of the Red Tent Festival held at Federal Hall. The festival saw over 200 women celebrating birth and womanhood through workshops, films, basket weaving and in the evening the very popular, intimate birth stories, where eight local women bravely shared their unique birth stories. ‘The success of the festival

really shows a need for women to process and share their or their loved one’s birth stories with each other,’ said festival organiser and coordinator of Stories from the Red Tent, local midwife Suzanne Weir. ‘ A lot of the feedback from the evening especially was just how powerful it was to hear such a range of different birthing experiences.’ Organisers hope Stories from the Red Tent which include art, photos and quotes as well as stories, will become a valuable birthing resource as well as a great read.

<echowebsection=Articles>

Organisers are stressing that all women are welcome to submit their birth stories or art to the project, no matter what type of birth they experienced. ‘Whether it was a few weeks, a few months or many years ago, we would love to receive a full cross-section of women’s birthing tales,’ says Suzanne. Stories from The Red Tent will be available at the next Red Tent Festival in 2011, which organisers have decided to make a bi-annual event. ‘We have had so much positive feedback from the festival that I don’t think we could not

do it again,’ says Suzanne. ‘Next time we hope to make it a whole day and evening event with more short workshops, entertainment, food, the basket weaving and “hang out” space which was really beautiful on the day, and of course the intimate evening of birth stories, as well as much more.’ If you would like to contact organisers about the project or submit your story or art, please email info@redtentfestival.com or check the website www. redtentfestival.com for more information.

Courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling was that entering into the 40-year leases was in the best interests of the town camp residents, because the only other option open to them was compulsory acquisition of their land by the federal government. The Courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision has brought home to Alice Springs town camp residents the reality of the harshness of the Northern Territory Intervention and the extraordinary powers granted to the Minister. Of most concern has been Minister Macklinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refusal to grant any genuine rights of

consultation and participation in the terms of the 40-year leases which has stigmatised, demoralised and disempowered residents. For the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Close the Gap policies to be effective, a community based approach must be adopted to make sure that Aboriginal people are involved, supported and empowered to improve their lives and living conditions.

Protect The Pass

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for people to draw a line in the sand at The Pass in Byron Bay. Our National Parks service seems intent on being a landlord rather than meeting its key function of protecting habitat and providing recreational amenity for the people of NSW. The past few years have seen the Cape Byron Reserve Trust upgrade cottages into prime holiday letting at Clarkes Beach. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure staying there would be a wonderful experience. But does that mean that every structure within the ReKaren Hodder serve must be turned to maxiMullumbimby mum income production? That

seems to be NPWS intention with the old Pass CafĂŠ site. The plan seems to be to turn the cafĂŠ into accommodation and a new kiosk to be erected where the public toilets now stand. The area that so many of us enjoy picnicking in, watching the sunset over the water, will become the kiosk forecourt, paved and devoid of spirit. The wonderful amenity of the old midden place which served as a gathering place for eons will be sacrificed for the sake of one holiday let and the commercial operation of the new Kiosk. We have two weeks to let NPWS/the Reserve Trust know that we like The Pass as it is and not to jam another holiday let into our favorite playground. We need to lobby the Trust on 6620 9300, local MP Don Page on 6686 7522. Veda Turner

At last Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public access session prior to the Council meeting my voice was silenced once again. Once again due to time constraints, despite the fact that I had booked a slot in advance and despite the session starting ten minutes late and closing five minutes early. I am not impressed! Is it fair, is it democratic that I was denied the opportunity to remind Councillors and the administration of the perilous future faced by our iconic Norfolk Pines in Bay Street unless action is taken? The threat of serious damage to the trees, caused in the main by cars constantly rolling over the often exposed root system, was first brought to Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attention back in 2002 and has been the subject of numerous debates, questions, recommendations and resolutions ever since. Fellow residents, it will come as no surprise to you, I am sure, that the net result to date is zero! In short, the pines are still suffering, threatened with serious damage or worse. A few months ago Councillors approved the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Landscape Analysis and Renovation Plan for Byron Bay CBDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Not a word about the Bay Street pines. According to its author, the pines were not mentioned because the problem was already addressed by another plan. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not give up, fellow residents. Despite my disappointment last Thursday the Asset Management Services Executive Manager has promised an answer to the question I was not allowed to ask. Stay tuned. Peter Wegner

Bangalow Public School Year 5 spelling whiz, Michael Krippner, has just returned from a week in Sydney, proudly clutching a gold medal from the University of NSW, and a bagful of goodies earned as a state finalist in the Premier’s Spelling Bee. Michael, aged 11, was awarded his gold medal in a glittering presentation on November 20 at the UNSW’s John Niland Scientia auditorium, along with fellow NSW and ACT primary school students from Years 3 to 6, who excelled in one or more of the UNSW-run tests in Maths, Science, English, Writing, Spelling, and Computer Skills. These tests, known formally as the International Competitions and Assessments for Schools or ICAS, are conducted by UNSW in 20 countries in the region, with over two million students from Year 3 to Year 12 sitting this year. School involvement is required for students to sit, and Bangalow Public School principal, Tim Edwards, encourages his students to participate. ‘The ICAS tests are a good snapshot of how our kids are performing,’ Mr Edwards said, ‘as the students can’t study specifically for them. The tests also give the students valuable experience in sitting formal exams, and in 2009, I am again delighted with the results achieved.’ In addition to his recognition for Spelling, young Michael also received a High Distinction for Maths. Proud mum, Jocelyne, said, ‘I think that this all reflects very positively on Bangalow Public School and the quality of the education that is provided there.’ But all this was not to overshadow an exciting afternoon for Michael two days earlier, when he represented our area of the North Coast in the Senior State Final of the Premier’s Spelling Bee at the ABC Centre in Ultimo. Conquering such gems as ‘gingivitis’, ‘jurisprudence’, ‘acquiesce’ and ‘oleander’ (despite being way too young to remember Byron’s annual festival), Michael spelled his way against 34 other spellers through ten rounds, only to miss out on the live-to-air final shootout on ABC Statewide radio by faltering on ‘pacifist’. Still, equal fifth place out of an original number of 87,000 wasn’t a bad result, and the experience, as some might say, was priceless.

In recent weeks Azlan Currie, a year 5 student at Brunswick Heads Public School, has achieved outstanding success in state-wide public speaking and debating competitions for primary school students. She is the only student in the state to appear in the finals of both competitions held in Sydney. Azlan has competed in the annual multicultural speaking competition since Year 3, beginning as a school winner in her first year, the district champion in her second year and finally the winner of both the North Coast and New England titles this year. Her win put her into the state final in Sydney with 11 other finalists from across the state. Azlan’s prepared speech was on the topic ‘What do we do after saying sorry?’ and she had to also give an impromptu speech on the topic ‘Are you ready?’ Although she was not able to be the overall winner keen judges place her amongst the top speakers on the day. Azlan was also a member of the school debating team which became district champions in the first year of entry into the statewide competition. From there she was selected in the north coast team to travel to Sydney for a three day competition against nine other regional teams to determine the state primary school debating champions. The North Coast team had a great start to the competition when they defeated the team from Northern Sydney, long-time traditional holders of the cup. Competition was intense with teams participating in three debates each day. Although the North Coast team experienced a couple of losses along the way they strung together a run of victories to surge into the state final. The state final debate was against a strong team from the Central Sydney region on the topic ‘That children under 5 should be banned from watching television’. The adjudicator ultimately awarded the debate to Central Sydney, commenting that the debate was so close that it was the refutation of a single argument that finally won the debate for the Sydney team. Azlan has enjoyed every minute of her public speaking and debating this year. Most of the students she spoke against in both competitions were in year 6 so she is really looking forward to using her experience in both competitions next year.

A L L YO U R C OA STA L E N T E RTA I N M E N T Violinists Cleis Pearce and Laura Targett are Wild Strings. Together they step into the limelight at Ewingsdale Hall on Friday to launch their new CD. How did you both come to the violin? Was it an instrument you were made to play or did it find you? Was it a case of having a natural ability or did it come from hard work alone? Cleis: My parents bought me a violin after we sent back the piano we had hired as we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep up with the payments. I loved the piano but I guess I did as I was told and eventually grew to enjoy the violin. I had a lot of parental pressure and so I had to work hard at it. Laura: I chose it over other instruments when I was eight. I struggled with it for a few years, impatient to be able to play straight away and not enjoying the classical music I was playing, gave up for a year, and then re-found it and put a lot more passion and dedication into learning with the Gypsy, and Irish music I really loved. Having good ears for melody and a feel for rhythm helps, but a lot of the technique is like learning to read and write, and then what you are able to do with that is only limited by your imagination, and a lot of practice of course! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard that at the height of his career Yehudi Menuhin slept with his violinâ&#x20AC;Ś this is extreme, but is there a passion between instrument and player? Cleis: I used to feel so attached to the violin â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d feel strange to go anywhere without itâ&#x20AC;Ś when I was playing lots of gigs on tours Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d feel like the

instrument and I were in tune and alive as one. These days I am more detached. Laura: Other than my kids and loved people in my life, my violin is probably my most precious thing! On the other hand I have gone through moments of rage with it and wanted to smash it! When Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m playing it feels like an extension of me, like a bit of extra arm. What goes through your head when you are playing? Cleis: When I am playing well I am right inside the sound and the feeling of the notes as I play them and when improvising itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like I am singing in my mind the notes as I play them. Laura: All sorts of things; if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a boring gig: all the things Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to do tomorrow, the kids, the state of the world! If the music is really flowing I often feel quite empty, almost like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m floating above watching the music play me, thoughts become melodic notes. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your process composingâ&#x20AC;Ś how is music different when played on the violin? Cleis: I have a love of melody that comes through my writing for stringed instruments. The particular qualities that are special to bowed instrumentsâ&#x20AC;Ś like long notesâ&#x20AC;Ś chords when two violins are playing together. Plucking sounds for riffs and fast rhythmic passages that drive energy are some of the qualities I use in composing. Is there a difference between playing the violin and fiddling? Please explain! Cleis: I feel Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never qualified as a fiddler as I have never studied the sorts of music that Laura has played a lot. I

used to be thingy about not being called a fiddler as a lot of classical players are. I like the words violin and viola so these days thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I say I play these. You are both very busy with bands and collaborating with other people on their projectsâ&#x20AC;Ś what inspired you to get together to make your own album? Cleis: We started playing together just trying ideas out for funâ&#x20AC;Ś then we got gigs at Woodford last year and had to get a repertoire together quickly and people liked the music and Laura said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we do a recordingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where it started and gradually over the last year we

have developed the recording to where we are happy and ready to take the music out to the world. Laura: I met Cleis through playing with Greg Sheehan and Steve Berry in Greenlife, she was also playing with Greg and Steve in Coolangubra. I was inspired by her wonderful improvisationary skills and we started playing some tunes together finding common ground, enjoying the lack of backing band! We played at Woodford last year and then we started to record a simple demo, which grew bigger and bigger until we realized it was album material! Anything in particular to expect at the gig on the 11th?

Cleis: At the launch we will be playing lots of music from the album plus other tunes and there will be poetry from friend Max Ryan. We hope just to share a great evening hoping our violin students will come along and we will be putting up some of our visual art as Laura and I like to paint and draw when we can find a few precious moments. Laura: Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also have other guest musicians, Greg Sheehan, Marley Berry Pearce and friends and Shayana doing some gypsy dance. The Wild Strings CD launch is Friday at Ewingsdale Hall, doors open 7.30pm, tix $15/$10conc/$25 with CD, food available.

Cake Addict Every year it arrives like a brick through the window. The Christmas cake. Mine arrived a few days ago courtesy of a family friend who is kind enough not to just have us on her Christmas card list, we’re on the even shorter list of people who receive the 25 kilogram cake. It’s the ultimate paperweight, I dropped it on my foot and broke a bone. If someone was to break into my house and attempt to have me against the kitchen sink (hello, I’m waiting) then I have the cake on standby.

One blow and they’re sure to be unconscious. When they come round I’ll make some tea and force them to eat a few slabs before I call the police. It’s mandatory. From Christmas through to January you cannot leave my home without having consumed your body weight in cake. Gluten intolerant guests aren’t welcome. Swelling up or developing a nasty genital rash is no excuse. It’s the responsibility of all visitors to relieve me of cake. It’s exquisitely made and must be consumed. It seems downright rude to not ingest every morsel. The problem with Christmas cake is that no one likes it. But it’s tradition. We must eat it. It’s Christmas. There’s something of the Magic Pudding about the Chrissy cake. The more you eat, the more there is. I’m using it to chock up the wonky leg on the kitchen chair, I’ve hollowed out one for a parental pot stash (it’s the one place the kids won’t look) and I’m thinking of fashioning some straps so I can fashion my own cherry studded wedges. It’s death by cake. It’s got to the point I’m

setting the alarm for the wee hours of the morning just to get some more eating time in. The other day a Jehovah Witness came to the door. Instead of telling him to knack off I ushered him inside with a gush: ‘Would you like some cake?’ When I called the cab he was off his face on brandy soaked sultanas wearing nothing but a glazed cherry. This generation doesn’t get Christmas cake. They like the instant gratification of chocolate. They like cake that delivers only sweetness. They don’t want their cake to double as a laxative. I quite fancy a slice with my tea. But once a week. Not every two hours. To get through my cake allotment I’ve installed a canula and rigged up a drip so I can be fed intraveneously while I sleep. I can’t sleep while it’s in the house. I know it’s there, on the kitchen table, waiting for me. I don’t know how to get rid of it. The cat won’t eat it and the dog has buried his slice. It seems to be breeding. Now someone else

has dropped one off and just yesterday my Nanna sent me a Lion’s. That’s no gift. That’s a cake reduction strategy. I’m hoping to start building a new home soon, perhaps I could go for something really eco friendly and instead of using mudbricks, I could opt for Christmas cake. I wonder why Christmas cake is associated with the birth of baby Jesus. At what point of his stay in his barnyard crib did he decree that all humanity should celebrate my birth with a brick-like cake? That’s just Manger Danger. They say you can’t have your cake and eat it too. It’s true. I have a lot of Christmas cake and I just can’t bloody eat it. Tomorrow I start on the ham.

It is one part world music, one part dance party sprinkled with indie pop, breakbeat, progressive, trance and phat tribal beats, all delivered with Deya’s unique vocal looping and radiant lyrics.

Mama Mia New local High Vibes band Mama Lala will be performing at the Lennox Hotel on Sunday from 4 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 7.30pm. Mama Lala are currently recording their Debut EP due for release in March 2010. Mama Lala music is about creating a platform for love, reminding all that it is OK to love and love could potentially be the key to creating peace within. Mama Lala are pleased to announce a new member Wantanga, on Didge and Voice. Naturally the Didge is the perfect instrument to blend into the Mama Lala Sound, as the Yolngu believe it is the voice of the Mother (Earth) and Wantanga is a fine player. Mama Lala = Voice for the Mother. Mother meaning the earth and all Mothers on the Earth. Zoe, Camilla and Wantanga are all parents. After years of writing protest songs, Camilla has taken her songwriting focus away from the negatives in life and is now focusing on the power of love.

For over 25 years two local committed community organizations have been getting on with the job of supporting people – who experience homelessness, poverty and disadvantage in and around Byron Bay. The Byron Emergency Accommodation Project (BEAP) and the Byron Bay Youth House (BBYH) provide accommodation, information, referral and support to people experiencing homelessness and hardship. For these two local charities it is a very special event that signifies the enormous influence they have had on the lives of the many people who have passed through their doors and received the safety, warmth and support to make crucial life changes and take new life directions. To celebrate this incredible achievement BEAP and BBYH would like to invite the community to join them and some very talented comedians and musicians for an evening of music, laughter and feasting at ‘SAFE n’ SOUNDS’ – a very special birthday celebration and cabaret. Held at the Byron Community Centre on Sunday the show features hilarious MC Joel Salom and begins with fun for the kids with Simon Mellor, Spaghetti Noodles and Greg Sheehan’s musical toy box. There will be plenty of room for dancing as we celebrate and swing in the aisles to an all star lineup. There will be some special guest appearances on the night and delicious food will be provided by the Liberation Larder. Tickets are just $20 and kids get in for free. All proceeds will go towards BEAP and BBYH and their ongoing support of the Byron homeless. From 5pm.

Follow Alice down the rabbit hole and into a fun filled extravaganza with the Circus Arts Performance Troupe’s full length production, Circus in Wonderland. Featuring a team of the Shire’s top young artists performing amazing acts on the ground and in the air, this is a show not to be missed! Within the ample walls of Byron Entertainment Centre, professionals, students and volunteers will combine to re-create the story of Alice in a way never seen before. This is a Byron Bay community production and is proudly supported by Friends of the Circus – a not for profit group set up to train young people in skills for the future including event production, stage, lighting and sound management. ‘Circus in Wonderland’ runs from Saturday to Sunday, with 2pm matinees and 7.30pm evening shows.

Laugh Laugh Laugh Standup comedian Hannah Gadsby is one of the most exciting women comics in the country. The Age has called

her ‘deliciously awkward’ and when she wowed them in Edinburgh, local media proclaimed ‘she is deadpan perfection’. When asked who or what has shaped her life the most, Hannah doesn’t miss a beat. ‘My Mother. She was such a massive person in my life, still is. I was frightened of my mum, she is hilarious but she was so mean… it was a loving but fierce relationship.’ So how did Mrs Gadsby take the news that her daughter was a lesbian? ‘She didn’t take it very well, actually. I think I was 24 or 25, I phoned her up, I didn’t want to do it face to face. She said, why are you telling me this? I don’t want to know. How would you feel if I told you I was a murderer? Or a robber! That was the beautiful thing, it wasn’t the murderer thing that got me, it was that she tried to think of what was worse than a murderer and came up with robber!’ In 2008, Hannah toured Australia and Singapore alongside top local and international performers as part of the Melbourne Comedy Festival Roadshow. She now

They’re back. The next crop of standup comedy Virgins. Bigger, bolder and brasher than ever. For the past six weeks I’ve been teaching these gorgeous nuts the gentle art of standup. These newbie comics range from a couple of Mullum High School kids, a builder, a TV presenter, a stay at home Mum, a psychologist, a grey nomad to a radio announcer, an audio technician, an acupuncturist, a drug and alcohol worker and a Swiss cake baker (who’s also a psychologist). Standup comedy is the ultimate way to improve your public speaking, to increase your confidence and overcome your fear of failure! I’m the MC but it’s not about me, it’s about them, the amazing comedy graduates who will fly in the face of fear. Byron Services’ Club Pandanus Lounge on Monday at 8pm.

Crackers & Jam – A Cabaret Celebration of Mental Health Having a mental health issue can be tough. Coupled with the challenges that every person’s issue may present, there’s also the fact that although common and affecting nearly everyone (one in five people will suffer from a mental health issue in their life) there is still a lot of stigma. It takes a lot of courage for people with mental health issues to stand up and proudly come out about their illness while asking at the same time not to be stereotyped by their diagnosis. Crackers & Jam is a celebration of individuality, humour, story, courage and song. It will feature keynote speaker Professor Meg Smith, from University of Sydney, a performance by poet Rod Gibson (making a special guestie since relocating to Maclean some years back). Rod has been very public about his schizophrenia and at one point staged a play he’d written chronicling his diagnosis. It was called The Fine Art of Kissing the Ground. Many groups find singing and music not just therepeutic, but also uplifting The evening will feature The Buttery Recovery Choir, Namatjera Brothers, Amada Ensemble and Nia Dance Group. There’s also an art exhibition and comics will be there to do standup comedy about their mental health stories. Crackers & Jam is about awareness raising and telling stories via entertainment. It is an opportunity for the community to come together on the path towards greater acceptance and understanding. Tickets are $25 for adults, $17 concession and kids under 12 are $9. It’s at the Bangalow A&I Hall on Thursday December 17 at 7pm. Tickets are at Barebones in Bangalow and Private Life in Byron. Mandy Nolan, will be there as MC.

Hitting the Pitch

3VRed?3`ad

Hot on the heels of a season of international successes, electro dub sensation Pitch Black plays the Hotel Great Northern on Saturday.

Funk, beats and bass… put your dollars into this jukebox!

Tell me a little about your experiences touring the US, is there much of a scene for Electronic music? There is a huge scene for it and really great audiences, we love touring there. They are really up for our sound and we are able to really deliver our live show the way we like. Does this differ in Canada and Europe? Canada is similar but different, slightly more like us Kiwis but with a bit of USA attitude… In Europe they can be a bit more serious but really into it. What is it in your sound that sets you apart? I guess the live dub process and the sound we get by mashing all the genres into the dub machine, also we are really playing live, the whole set is in bits and each set can be pretty varied depending on the crowd and the sound on stage.

PITCH BLACK crowd being hit with it. What are your biggest musical influences?

For me (Mike) it’s electronic music in all forms from art noise to club… Music that tells real stories, Tracks that are long but work, artists that push the boundaries of current sound What do you look for in guest and thinking. I am currently really enjoying the riffs in DJs? (Each show boasts a classical music. solid lineup of locals guests Why do you think NZ has including Spikey Tee, DJ such a head start in reggae Damon,aka The Nomad, and dub? DJ Katch, Nick Taylor and Possibly the love of reggae members of Shapeshifter). here meant that as our Sympathetic energy to us, generation came through people that give off good musically, dub was a very energy on stage, people natural thing to put into the playing interesting music, music and it was received well other acts that are pushing by the audiences therefore self the live envelope. We often perpetuating. Maybe the spirit put a younger harder energy of an Island nation with lots act on after us so we can play of space, dub suits our natural a bit earlier and then we get environment. to party and enjoy seeing our

Was Bob Marley the starting point for dub/electronica? NO… I would imagine that ever since the circuit was invented someone has been ‘dubbing’ it up. There was plenty of electronic music using delay/reverb before the crazy cats who started using the equipment as the instruments in Jamacia… it just didn’t come from the reggae starting point. However there is no doubt that Marley and that reggae music of the time was a tipping point for what we currently call dubbing. What is next for Pitch Black – what does 2010 have in store? Getting new sounds and ideas for the next album, lots of little shows to try out new ideas live, exploring new ways to deliver the video show.

Thomas Koch aka DJ T. visits La La Land this Thursday on his tour promoting his second album titled The Inner Jukebox. This album reflects DJ T.’s ongoing interest in reinventing classic sounds for hip dance floors. The Inner Jukebox represents DJ T.’s ideas translated into sound and produced by Thomas Schumacher, a spearheading German artist whose compositions and productions were on many DJs’ playlists for years. The Inner Jukebox is no doubt sophisticated work that will be a treat for seasoned clubbers as well as hit the spot with people new to house and clubbing. Berlin based label owner, producer, event organiser, club operator, publisher, journalist, DJ T. became a slave to the ‘black wax’ at the age of nine. Pursuing his hobby collecting vinyl of The Village People, Donna Summer and then electro funk’s Afrika Bambaataa, Planet Patrol, Newcleus and Mantronix, DJ T. found funk, beats, bass and the soundtrack to a new dance culture. In 1986 T. started DJing at house parties followed by his first professional gigs at his own nights in Frankfurt at club Nouvelle a year later, and found himself swept away by the wave of acid house. In 1989 T. founded the influential German dance

music magazine Groove. Throughout the nineties T. played almost all of Frankfurt’s most popular club nights including Plastik, Dorian Gray and The Box. At the end of the millennium in 1999 T., Patrik Dechent and others opened club Monza. In his capacity as DJ and in charge of the club’s overall musical direction, DJ T. played an integral part in creating a high profile for this hot-spot. Artists such as Steve Bug, DJ Hell, Ricardo Villalobos and Tie Schwarz were among the venue’s frequent guests. 2002 saw the inauguration of the label Get Physical. Within ten single releases the label had gained a worldwide reputation winning ‘label of the year 2005’ award from British DJ Mag. T’s remixes of Spectrum, Mylor and Nucleus plus remixes for labels such as ArtofDisco/Yellow, 20:20 Vision, Simple and Naked Music have moved critics and crowds alike. In 2006 T. released his first commercially available DJ mix, Body Language Vol. 2. If T. s reputation is anything to go by we can expect a fresh and varied set at La La Land. Koch is most certainly no ‘style fascist, but rather something like a bass and groove-addicted club historian with a firm grasp of the contemporary. Thomas Schuhmacher speaks about working with T. on youtube DJT The Inner Jukebox EPK and explains how they worked on this album using samples from 45 banks comprising 60 sounds each. Reinventing nineties sounds and vocals by chopping three second

bites into fractions of a second creating new beats, rhythms and melodies. This album is about tasty club music composed and produced with boldness, sexiness and bounce. DJ T.’s idea and vision produced by Thomas Schuhmacher resulted in an innovative deep house and techno crossover club album. While spacious and minimal, it is incredibly rich in texture with plenty of groove and atmosphere. Shine On stands out as the commercial hit but Thomas Schumacher‘s favorite track is Bateria… go check it out at La La Land and buy it on Beatport. Support DJs on the night are Don Nadi and Daniel Webber. Entry is $10, what a bargain! Starts at 8pm … be early, this is likely to pack out…

Coming up at La La Land and gearing up for New Years eve is… Christian Luke Friday 18, The Stafford Brothers Wednesday 23, ‘We Wish u a Merry Xmas’ with Matt, Nugent Daniel Webber Thursday 24, Carl Kennedy Sunday 27, John Course Monday 28, Feenixpawl Tuesday 29 and Tenzin Wednesday 30. Tell me what YOU want to know about any of these artists and I’ll ask the question for you… send your emails to jackieonassid@

STARS

Every half century or so, a Saturn/U ranus opposition compels humans to change whatever conditions, relationships or belief systems are no longer working –the astral subtext underlying this week of sparks, steam and seasonal mayhem

Mungo’s Crossword

WITH LILITH

ARIES: While this week lavishes lashings of spritz and sparkle on your bedroom stars, remember that astrologically Aries rules the head so keep yours cool during tussles with others by maintaining focus on your desired outcome rather than what’s standing in the way of it. TAURUS: While your ruling planet Venus is in an agreeably frisky mood, this week it pays to think negative – as in absolutely not getting pressed or pressured into the discomfort zone. Most helpful advice right now is the old Taoist saying: Don’t just do something, stand there… GEMINI: Being the flexible entity you are sometimes makes sticking to a plan difficult, but this week needs relentless direction towards positive outcomes. Its success depends on improving communications with others, so choose cooperation over competition and consider deleting gossip from the Christmas activities list.

The latest anti-smoking campaign in Australia plans to focus on the financial cost of the habit and, after the events of this week, the Chinese Grandmasters Wang Yue and Li Chao would undoubtedly agree. At the ongoing World Cup tournament in Khanty Mansiysk – a tiny mining town in Siberia – Wang and Li were forfeited after arriving a minute late for their second playoff games. Under the world body FIDE’s new zero tolerance laws, both players lost automatically, and their elimination from the tournament cost them at least $10,000 each. (Wang was one of the favourites to win the $1.4m tournament.) The playoff games had a rolling start time, depending on the finishing time of the longest playoff game of the previous round, and Wang and Li, who had finished their initial games almost an hour earlier, had been outside the playing hall having a smoke when the new round began. The arbiters initially claimed to have warned the players that

CANCER: Be aware of the energy emissions you put out to others and the universe at large this week. If you’re feeling out of sorts, doing something special for someone else is the classic mood improver – and generosity will actually make present learning curves less expensive. LEO: The Lion tribe are presently basking in some excellent star futures. Yes, there’s friction with others, but no need to play the drama card – just be charming. The only fly in this week’s astral ointment is extravagance. Overspending. Maxing the plastic. Why go there? VIRGO: If certain things you’ve outgrown are exiting your orbit, let them – stay calm, lock into cruise control and watch for new openings. With this week moving fast and talking hard, trust your intuition on snap decisions and resist the urge to do more rather than less.

LIBRA: Public relations need extra effort and finesse at present, plus Saturn wants you studying the latest trends and technologies – a long term process, so be patient with yourself. Late week Libra moon’s a fine time for romance, a moonlit prance or just taking a chance. SCORPIO: Making plans in these unstable times isn’t always easy, but this week hands out prizes for willingness to experiment with inventive ideas, adventurous approaches or unusual people. The unexpected works in your favour so long as you resist micromanaging yourself into a corner. SAGITTARIUS: With this week’s Sun and Venus in Sagittarius, restrictions will only make you friendly bundles of energy even more resourceful. Right now Chiron and your ruling planet Jupiter are energizing new beginnings in a big way – just don’t be tempted by unethical short cuts. CAPRICORN: Saturn-ruled, traditionalist Capricorns are

Sure it’s an effort forging new neural pathways, but when the alternative’s becoming a dinosaur…? AQUARIUS: Mars isn’t leaving your relationship zone any time soon, but the forces of luck and healing plus your ruling planet in the sign of togetherness combine to present some interesting, workable and necessary alternatives this week for living in proximity with others and sharing space. PISCES: With Uranus in Pisces busy rejigging your togetherness etiquette, relationship manners and interactions with others, it’s also time to upgrade connections that are lacking in empathy, tenderness or value.

WEDNESDAY 9

It’s actually a good week for movie watching, despite the tinselitis: 1. John Travolta and Rene Russo star in Get Shorty (Prime, Friday, 10.40pm), an amusing collision of gangsters and producers – spot the difference. 2. Sigourney Weaver and heavy weaponry – what more could you want? Aliens (TEN, Saturday, 8.30pm) is perhaps the best of a very successful scifi franchise. If you can’t handle the horror, American Beauty makes a plastic bag transcendental on Prime at 10.30pm. 3. Star film of the week is Little Miss Sunshine (TEN, Sunday, 8.30pm), a satisfying journey for film buffs and Kombi lovers alike.

by and targeted at that doltish generation who can sit for hours on end watching people in their pyjamas do nothing on Big Brother. Talk about boring. And as for comparing its fear factor with The Blair Witch Project â&#x20AC;&#x201C; well, get off of my cloud. Katie, a big lump of a lass with an unflattering collection of shorts and an irritating voice that just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go away, has moved into the Paranormal Activity San Diego bungalow of Micah, Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true, anybody and her boyfriend, who is a shares everybody can make a movie trader. Accompanying her, we these days. All you need do soon discover, is an unseen is buy one of the scores of demon thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been on her case idiot-protof cameras that have since she was a child. Micah flooded the market, or a flash sets out to capture an image mobile (rest easy, David Lean), find a couple of actors who can of the thing with his Panasonic mega pixel â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to what end is remember their lines without never really explained. They bumping into the furniture go to bed, leaving the camera (the latter talent was not a running, and in the wee small prerequisite here) and away hours they hear weird noises you go. But that is not to say downstairs. They go to bed, that anybody and everybody leaving the camera running, should make a movie. Touted and in the wee small hours they as a horror classic by the con hear weird noises downstairs. artists in PR, what is genuinely They go to bed, leaving the frightening about this little camera running, and in the wee stinker is the prospect that it might very well be part of a new small hours â&#x20AC;Ś Get my drift? It is extremely repetitive with barely wave of cinema that is created

Where The Wild Things Are It seems that every other kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; movie being released now has been based on a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;much lovedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;universally cherishedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never heard of (doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t anybody read Treasure Island any more?). This, which you suspect is intended to resonate strongly with those of a certain age, is an adaptation of a story that its author Maurice Sendak told in a mere ten sentences. So co-writer/director Spike Jonze had his work cut out for him in sustaining a feature-length film from it, and I am not sure that he has succeeded. Fanciful, friendless young Max, made despondent by a teacher who has told his class that the planet is doomed, turns on a tanty one night as his single Mum is about to serve dinner to a man who is (I think we are meant to understand) potentially a new partner. Screaming and uncooperative, Max bites her, drawing blood, and runs off into the dark. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an endearing introduction to the central figure with whom we are expected to empathise (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;troubledâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; people are way FULLY AIR-CONDITIONED

joy of an intelligent, grown up film in this genre is enhanced by the cultural specifics of the story, the attention to detail in even the smallest roles (Emma Thompson, with just two scenes, makes an impact) and the story having something relevant to say about womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roles in UK (and other) societies only 30-odd years ago. The tone of the film remains with us, like a well loved melody. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a stylish, spellbinding and blatantly funny film that reminds us of how blinkered love is and how impressionable we are when temptation wafts byâ&#x20AC;Ś ~ Lounge Cinema

over-indulged, are they not?) and, despite his angelic face, I was never quite able to actually like Max. In a Homer Winslow sailboat he makes a perilous voyage to a strange land where giant muppet creatures live, surviving jagged rocks and wild seas before washing up in a safe cove â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a ripping scene energised by the magic-realism of Lance Acordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful cinematography. He immediately establishes himself as king of the domain but, contrary to the norm, high spirited adventure does not ensue. Instead there is an intimate study of the personalities and relationships of the wild things. Disaffected, short-fused Carol (male) is the one to whom Max gets closest, forming a bond which the others eventually resent. All of the characters are wholly convincing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it is the filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great triumph â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but Carol is the most complex. Like all of us, he needs to be loved and, as important, appreciated. When he shows Max the secret model he has built of his utopia it is a heartfilling moment, but I wondered whether Max, much less the juvenile audience, appreciated the weight of it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hoped for so much from this movie and, though enjoying it a lot, its deep sadness left me feeling hollow and sombre (a response which was, I quickly realised, at odds with those around me). The ending, bereft of resolution, has a dispiriting sense that for all of the participants, whose joy is only fleeting, nothing is revealed. ~ John Campbell

a heart palpitation to show for it. Katieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s equally uninteresting friend Diane drops by to chat with her while she is beading and a psychic comes and goes without contributing anything (unaccountably, he reminded me of Lloyd Bridges, from which point I had the damndest time getting the spooky theme from Sea Hunt out of my head). Writer/director Oren Peli has applied the traditional slowburn approach to his non-story and he has studiously made use of every clichĂŠ in the scare mongerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lexicon, including an attic scene, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all to no avail. The schoolies seemed to like it, but for mine it was totally lame and not nearly as disturbing as Eddie Obeid Inc. ~ John Campbell

My first encounter with organic wine was about eight years ago when my friend Stefan would turn up with a bottle of it. it was the only wine he would drink â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this was his colonic irrigation phase â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and I remember a glass of it leaving me underwhelmed. There was very little in the way of choice back then, and I think in my ignorance I privately sneered, wondering what the point of it all was â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I mean, if you are drinking wine should not the prime consideration be its quality and/or its flavour? Of course now I know better â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and I know considerably better and considerably more after spending an hour chatting with Jonathon and Kati Denver-Bauer. Many may know Jonathon â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he has long been in the area working in hospitality, which, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it, wine definitely is all about. For the past five years he has been concierge at Gaia Retreat in the hinterland, where pretty much everything is organic. Already thus imbued with the philosophy he began to consider sustainability â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;across the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; about three years ago; a course in GM, sustainability and agriculture distilled his focus further. And so he was led to organic wines and winemaking, quickly discovering examples which thrilled him with their quality. Research via the internet unearthed the existence of a handful of organic wineries and only two other people nationally who were specialising in their representation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and so was

born his business, Organic Wine Merchants. It was, he tells me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a business that had its own life â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it took off on its own.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Now organic winemakers are calling on him and partner Kati and offering their wines. So what exactly is organic wine â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and why pursue it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; apart from the fact that organic-everything is so currently chic? At its most basic level, organic wine is made from grapes grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and chemical fertilisers. The winemaking techniques should be organic as well, with little or no manipulation of the wines by reverse osmosis, excessive filtration, or flavour additives. Many organic wine-makers even prefer wild yeasts for fermentation. A label saying â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;organicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; means that the wine has met certain standards set by a government agency, and because different nations have their own certification criteria what is organic in one country may not be in another. Wineries that take the ecology of the vineyard into account, attempting to minimise energy use and chemical treatments, are referred to as sustainable. The issue of sulphites, or sulphur dioxide, is somewhat provocative: the most commonly added preservative in wine, it is also a naturally occurring element (occurring as a by-product of fermentation) and it possesses strong antimicrobial properties and some antioxidant ones as well.

vitamins and minerals, because the vines are able to access so much better nutrition through a healthy soil food web than through drip-fed soluble fertilisers. The wine-loving world has begun to make this connection... organic wine is a return to the wine that nature intended us to enjoy, and which is true to its origin, reflecting purely the soil and environment in which it is grown.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jonathon and Kati are a commissioned agency for a number of organic wineries and already have a very impressive portfolio. More and more restaurants are seeking them out â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and if you wish to as well, they can be contacted via towm@ymail.com, or visit their website www. theorganicwinemerchants. com

snippets STARS FOR BYRON EATERIES The Queensland Food & Wine Guide, considered the bible of Queensland dining, has just been released â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and while the focus is on the best of that state, several restaurants south of the border received accolades in the prestigious Guide. With travelling time between the two States now considerably reduced

thanks to the Tugun by-pass, more and more foodies are choosing to dine out in the Northern Rivers region. Receiving stars in the Guide were both The Restaurant at the Byron at Byron and Satiate at Bangalow. Satiateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s award follows hot on the heels of its first ever Chefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hat from the 2010 Sydney Morning Herald â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Good Food Guideâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

But wait â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there is more. Strong evidence abounds that organic wine is capable of superior flavour and quality as well. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Growing wine without chemical interference is giving a much cleaner and purer representation of the grapes and the terroirâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, Jonathon explains. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just a simplistic hippy no-hangover thingâ&#x20AC;Ś â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I really like what Sam Statham has to say on the matter, in an article from May 2009. Sam is owner and producer of award-winning Rosnay Organic Wines and the creator of the Australia/ New Zealand Organic Wine Show. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;When artificial inputs are replaced with natural farming practices, there is a qualitative change in the fruit that is grown.

Crankin’ what’s happening surfside

The trio have been training for this belt for two years, the overall culmination of five years hard work. Instructor at the Byron Living Tao Health and Martial Arts Centre Shirsha Marie, is very proud of the women. ‘This art has an equal proportion of male and female students,’ says Shirsha Marie. ‘Classes are mixed so the women benefit from training with the men, for their large and robust physical structure and strong directed yang power, the men benefit from the women’s fluidity, circular movement, ability to yield and blend, and use of smooth flowing, yin power. The women were graded by Shirsha Marie a 4th Dan Black Belt and Master Kevin Brown, a 6th Dan Black Belt and President of the Australian Hapkido Association. As part of their test during grading, the women were applying joint locks and throws to a large group of male Black Belts who were much larger than themselves. For ore info about Hapkido visit: www.byronlivingtao. com.au or phone 6685 8181.

I LOST MY PUSSY

Last Saturday my pussy vanished. She is a grey and white domestic short hair about 8 yo. She has a red collar with heaps of bells and tags. Her name is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sodaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; but answers to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Pussyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. You can recognise her by her lack of tail, she has a stump. We miss her dearly so if you have seen her please let us know. She lives in Argyle Street, Mullumbimby. Please contact us on 66843850

Our shelter is ďŹ lling up with kittens and we are looking for loving people to give these little beauties a home for life. These little guys will just soak up all the love and cuddles that you can give them. They are a bundle of energy and will race around and make you laugh with their antics, and then when they run out of steam, will fall asleep wherever they stop. Come in and meet them and have one of them steal your heart away. Please make an appointment to meet them with Lesa on 0438 363 287 Billinudgel www.petsforlifeanimalshelter.org

News Extra

Aboriginal fishing rights established Run raises $8,500 Two of the State’s peak Aboriginal organisations have welcomed reforms in the NSW Parliament which formally recognise Aboriginal Cultural Fishing as a legal right. The reforms will be welcomed by all Aboriginal people in NSW, the Chairperson of the New South Wales Aboriginal Land Council, Ms Bev Manton, and Chairperson of NTSCORP Limited, Michael Bell said. Both organisations have been involved in negotiations with the Minister for Primary Industries Tony Kelly and the Department of Industry and Investment NSW to amend the Fisheries Management Act 1994 to recognise Aboriginal cultural fishing, ‘Minister Kelly agreed to

amend the original Bill as a direct result of these negotiations,’ Ms Manton said. ‘He should be commended for doing so as these have ultimately improved the rights of Aboriginal fishers in NSW. Mr Bell said, ‘Our concern was always to ensure that Aboriginal people did not continue to be prosecuted for undertaking their inherent right to fish. The Act now acknowledges that fishing for the Aboriginal community is an imperative part of culture, encompassing spiritual, social and customary significance.’ One of the key changes is that an Aboriginal person will now be authorised to fish within the Act’s definition of Aboriginal Cultural Fishing, without the need to apply for

a fishing permit or to pay a fee. This applies to both freshwater and saltwater fishing activities. New regulations will make provision for the management of Aboriginal cultural fishing. Ms Manton and Mr Bell said the new law was a culmination of many years of hard work by NTSCORP, NSWALC and other Aboriginal organisations and individuals. These included Danny Chapman, Stephen Ryan, Mick Leon, the Department’s Aboriginal Reference Group, Local Aboriginal Land Councils and Traditional Owner groups. The amendments have also paved the way for the Minister to establish an Aboriginal Advisory Council. The Council will play a key role in advising the Minister on

all Aboriginal fishing issues. Ms Manton and Mr Bell said the changes were just the beginning. ‘Much hard work still remains to be done,’ they said. ‘We will need to continue to work closely with the government on the management regime for the regulations which will be crucial in cementing the gains for our people. ‘The Minister has shown real leadership and we are looking forward to keeping up the momentum in relation to the development of the Regulations and the Aboriginal Advisory Council. ‘We look forwarded to extending our discussion to Marine Parks and establishing Aboriginal commercial fishing opportunities in NSW.’

Volunteer coordinator Brigid Kramer handing the cheque to Patty Delaney, Area Manager of the Cancer Council.

The Byron Lighthouse run held on October 25 this year raised over $8,500. Volunteer coordinator Brigid Kramer said that it was ‘our most successful run so far and so satisfying to see the local community enjoying themselves as well as raising much needed funds for cancer research’. Patty Delaney, the North Coast area manager for the Cancer Council, has stated that funds raised this year will be allocated towards brain cancer and behavioural research.

The run has been on the community calendar for three years and according to Brigid is now entrenched as a popular event which enjoys widespread business and community support. ‘The event has grown from its humble beginnings of 100 participants and it is hoped that next year will see continued growth’. Any business wanting to take advantage of the success of the run by sponsorship can contact Brigid on 0414 856 061 or at byronrun@gmail.com.

Graffiti laws toughened New laws that double penalties for graffiti vandalism and ban juveniles from possessing spray cans came into force last week, Attorney General John Hatzistergos said. Mr Hatzistergos said it is now illegal for a juvenile to carry a spray can unless they can prove they had it for a legitimate purpose. ‘If police catch a juvenile carrying a spray can in a public place, they will have to prove they were using it for school, work or legal art or face six months jail or a $1,100 fine,’ he said. ‘If you get caught defacing property with graffiti, you face the prospect of spending up to a year in jail.’ Mr Hatzistergos said the government has also expanded the offence of supplying spray paint to minors to cover adults who go on to supply to juveniles. The new laws are part of the NSW government’s coordinated campaign to combat graffiti, which includes cleanup orders, community clean-

up initiatives and new antigraffiti planning guidelines. ‘From next year, courts will have the power to order graffiti vandals to pay off their fines by cleaning up graffiti at a rate of $30 per hour,’ he said. ‘We will also launch Australia’s first Graffiti Action Day in May next year – in association with Keep Australia Beautiful.’ The government will also roll out $1 million in annual grants to implement anti-graffiti design for buildings in graffiti hotspots. The top 10 graffiti hotspots earmarked for a grant include Blacktown, Sutherland Shire, Newcastle, Penrith, Gosford and Wollongong. Mr Hatzistergos said the government will next year introduce new state planning guidelines to ‘graffiti proof ’ new state government buildings. The Government is also developing anti-graffiti guidelines with local councils.

Making good homes with a small footprint Victoria Cosford

Property in focus: Koonyum Lodge page 52

A

Byron Bay builder and leading Sydney architect have teamed up on a sustainable housing venture that proves innovative, green housing is affordable and accessible to all new home owners. Steve Dyer of Build Better worked with architect Tone Wheeler of Environa Studio to build two homes in Bayshore Drive, Byron Bay, that showcase some of the latest innovations in eco-efficient design and construction. About 60 people – a mix of architects, designers, real estate agents, town planners, members of the Eco group and media representatives – gathered at one of the homes for a private opening and tour. Steve Dyer told The Echo that, after eight months, it was ‘good to have it complete! This venture hasn’t come without its heartache... not least the global financial crisis. ‘We wanted something that was both cost-effective and more eco and we managed to halve the build costs... We’ve conditioned the building and not the air, for

example, and the roofing system works like an esky lid. We did all this for 10 – 15% dearer than a project home.’ He spoke about the misconception that being eco is just too expensive or high-maintenance and the fact that these homes were able to demonstrate the many ways to minimise the impact of building on the environment ‘without compromising quality and outcome.’ Architect Tone Wheeler went on to discuss the relative smallness of the homes – an aspect not immediately obvious due to cool white brick walls, open airy spaces and minimalist, economical design. ‘You don’t need many rooms to live in,’ he told The Echo, ‘These don’t feel small... We turned the house inside out, upside down and back to front. ‘What we’re looking for here is a bit more relaxed, informal and easy on the eye. By cantilevering the floor and the ceiling out we’ve made something dramatic to the eye, that’s not a box.’

The key sustainability features of the homes include building conditioning instead of air conditioning (using reverse brick veneer, thermal mass interior and strategically placed windows, fans and doors); building materials including bricks that minimise ‘embodied emissions’; eco paints and polishes; innovative roofing system with built-in insulation; innovative wall cladding that eliminates the need to render walls; a 3000 litre underground rain water tank; gas-boosted solar hot water – there are even native droughtresistant plants in the garden which require little or no watering. Addressing the audience, Steve Dyer acknowledged Tone with his ‘enviable reputation for sustainable designs’ as well as Joel Fleming, one of the new home owners and founding chairman of Climate

Friendly, a Sydney-based company set up to help businesses calculate and neutralise their carbon footprint with renewable energy. Tone in turn spoke, praising Steve for being ‘a fantastic builder. ‘He actually figures out what the house is going to look like in the future.’ He went on to say that ‘we’re taking a smaller footprint here. We as consumers have to learn to live better, with a lower environmental footprint.’ Joel Fleming spoke about how ‘you can decrease the footprint of a construction quite significantly by making more informed choices. These houses have an 80% emission cut; they’re aesthetically pleasing to live in, naturally lit, with more even temperatures. Increasingly people will place a high value on high quality, sustainable homes. Tone is truly an architectural guru.’

Byron Bay’s hinterland offers up this unique topographical gem adjoining its National Park forest overlooking Byron Bay. ‘Koonyum Lodge’, centered on Koonyum Ridge and encompassed by a horseshoe of ranges and waterfalls, captures a 3600 world-class panorama of Brunswick valley to Cape Byron lighthouse and the Pacific Ocean. The property consists of a cliff-top ridge contracting to a razorback spur which forms a natural bush-walking track, culminating in a rocky pinnacle containing the resident wedge tailed eagles who share the awe-inspiring mountain and ocean vistas. Immediately below lies 100 acres sloping to the valley floor and containing approximately 50 acres of pristine habitat rainforest accessed by extensive walking and 4WD trails. The epitome of privacy and position, the stone and cedar home is a tour de force of craftsmanship – the handmade quality and harmonious integration of site, structure, materials and view combine to make the quintessential mountain retreat with its paramount position and profound seclusion. A virtual ‘Fiefdom Island in the Sky’, made possible by the private ownership of a mountain which is destined to remain a gilt-edged trophy. ■ For more information contact Red Rose Realty on 6680 9505.
