Youth take over council chambers community in the Byron Shire.Young people are not an alien race, nor are parents or other adults. We are all human beings and part of the networks that make up our society.’ Council’s youth development officer Rita Youssef-Price said the group will help coordinate the Byron Shire 2010 National Youth Week event and are keen to involve other local young people. ‘High on their list of priorities are issues such as transport, safety and a strong focus on building community networks; especially for young people in the north of the Shire,’ said Ms Youssef-Price. ‘Young people need to feel that they belong in this community. ‘Supporting young people to have a voice, and to participate in the community life of the Shire, is an important role for the Youth Council. The Youth Council will form small working groups, inviting other young people to help respond to community and youth issues. If you are a young person aged 12 to 21, and would like to be involved or want further information, please contact Rita Youssef-Price on 6626 7000.

Story & photo Eve Jeffery

Last Wednesday the council chambers played host to a entirely new council. Ranging in age from 12 to 18 years, a group of 15 young people were officially inducted into the Byron Youth Council, the group representing a broad range of youth interests and experiences from five local schools. Current councillors present at the event vacated their official seats as the Byron Shire Youth Council members were invited to take a place around the chambers as part of their formal presentation and introduction. Mayor Jan Barham congratulated the group on their nomination and Crs Basil Cameron, Diane Woods and Simon Richardson presented the young people with certificates and a Youth Council package, including a diary to manage the responsibilities of their new role. Each of the young councillors presented a speech outlining their hopes and ideas to councillors, family, friends, community members and council staff. Together with his mother Delta Kay, Ngurung Brown, the youngest member of the group, gave a Welcome to Country.

Cr Simon Richardson looks on as Angeline Daniels gives her first address as a youth councillor.

Youth Council spokesperson Cara Maku spoke eloquently about the role of the group and what they hoped to achieve. ‘We are a diverse group

with many different backgrounds and interests from political interests to environmental awareness and commitment to social justice,’ said Ms Maku.

‘One thing we all have in common is our passion and ambition in giving young people a voice and improving the lives of young people and the

Police seek more help in ongoing investigation into Jai’s death Tweed/Byron Local Area Command detectives are again appealing for anyone with information about the death of Mullumbimby teenager, Jai Morcom, to come forward, as they continue to compile a report for the Coroner. Sixteen-year-old Jai died in the Gold Coast Hospital on Saturday August 29, two days after a melee in the grounds of Mullumbimby High School. Tweed/Byron Crime Manager, Inspector Greg Carey, said every effort to identify and interview witnesses was being undertaken, to the extent that an email address to investigators had been established. ‘We have conducted interviews with literally

dozens of students, teachers and community members. We have been in constant contact with Jai’s parents and the school community. ‘Investigators have also set up an email address which has been circulated throughout the school community, in the hope that additional information could be provided by that method. Inspector Carey said detectives were still awaiting the full autopsy report from the Queensland authorities. As Jai died in Queensland the report will be submitted initially to the Queensland Coroner. ‘I know every possible effort is being made by the Queensland authorities to conduct a thorough and completely

accurate report, which will be then passed onto the NSW Coroner, along with our report. To ensure we have investigated every single aspect of this boy’s death we need 100 per cent cooperation from everyone who had con-

tact with Jai on the day he died. ‘My detectives have amassed an enormous amount of witness statements, and have spent literally hours and hours interviewing his teachers, friends and family, but we must be convinced there are no unanswered questions. ‘Our investigation has not been helped by on-going speculation in the community over Jai’s death. It is vital that the community understand we need facts and not speculation. ‘Unfortunately, it takes time to conduct a complete and accurate investigation, just as it takes time for all autopsy tests and reports to be completed. ‘We ask the community to be pa-

tient with our investigation, continue to assist us with any information they believe may be relevant, and to support Jai’s family. Ultimately, it is Jai’s family who are suffering the greatest loss, and we want the answers.’ Anyone with information about the death of Jai Morcom is urged to contact Tweed/Byron detectives at Tweed Heads Police Station on 07 5536 0999 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Alternatively, information can be provided by email to tweeddets@police.nsw.gov.au. Also, Jai’s father Steve Drummond has dedicated a ‘Truth 4 Jai’ hotline: 0468 966 912. He can also be reached at Stephen-drummond44@hotmail. com.

The Mullumbimby Soup Kitchen is again preparing a very merry Christmas for some who may not otherwise have a reason to celebrate. This will be the sixth year that volunteers at the community facility will provide a meal and a takehome holiday hamper as well as gifts for the littlies. Kitchen founder Kris Campbell says that this year, as every year, there are those living in our community who belong to the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;have-notsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In a small way we can help provide a few treats for some people who cannot get these things for themselves. If as a community we can each give something small then it takes the load off the few who always give and it makes life easier for everyone.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The service is asking for non-perishable food items and treats and gifts for small Kris Campbell, centre back, and volunteers from the Mullumbimby Soup Kitchen. children to be left at the MulItems can be left until 5pm formation about the kitchen, lumbimby office of The Echo. volunteers to cook and serve on Friday and for more in- phone Kris on 6680 1229.

Community urged to have say on coastal plan Byron Shire Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s draft Coastal Zone Management Plan (CZMP) closing date for submissions is Tuesday December 22 at 4pm. Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive manager of planning Ray Darney said this is an opportunity for residents and ratepayers to have input towards the management of the Shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coastline. He said as with any important community planning instrument, there are often diverging opinions on the best way forward. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A common question at the recently held community information stands over the past month was on the 20 metre coastline buffer. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The overall objective of the draft CZMP is to maintain a 20 metre development-free buf-

fer to accommodate natural coastal processes and absorb the potential threat of immediate coastal hazards to life and property. At the same time, the draft CZMP will provide for the preservation and management of safe public accesses to beaches.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Darney said the 20 metre buffer could require the relocation of private dwellings and public infrastructure. He said that retaining a development free 20 metre buffer from the erosion escarpment does not necessitate the immediate removal of houses and infrastructure which are located outside of the 20m buffer zone; 20 metres is the distance within which structures and infrastructure are at risk

and will need to be removed or relocated. Included in the draft CZMP is an urgent priority for Council to undertake a Risk Analysis Audit of private erosion protection structures and public works. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Council has a responsibility to ensure items such as drains and pipes do not remain exposed after a storm event and as required under the draft CZMP, would be relocated landward before coastal erosion might impact on them,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Darney said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In the past, infrastructure has already been removed and relocated from the Kendall and Border Street areas in Belongil. Water, sewerage and roads have been moved further away from the coastal escarpment.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Copies of the draft CZMP and accompanying information are available for viewing at community access points including the Federal Store, Bangalow Post Office, Ocean Shores Summerland Credit Union, Suffolk Park Holiday Park, Shire libraries, and Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s administration centre, Station Street Mullumbimby, 9am to 4pm. Submissions may be lodged online at www.byron.nsw. gov.au/public-exhibition and written submissions should be addressed to The General Manager, PO Box 219, Mullumbimby NSW 2482, clearly marked â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Submission â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Draft Byron Shire Coastal Zone Management Plan.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

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.

Some of the themes explored in the course are:

A

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

Protest leads to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;death threatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;: Smith Victoria Cosford & Michael McDonald

A protest to mark the 61st anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights has led to a death threat, according to local activist Gareth Smith. Last Friday Mr Smith addressed the public out the front of Byron Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Railway Park. His large banner reading â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Gaza! Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ghetto. 1.5 million besiegedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; attracted passers-by â&#x20AC;&#x201C; although the throngs of skimpilyattired youths milling around the bus stop seemed more interested in their mobile phones. Later on, according to Mr Smith, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;At around 2.30pm, two young Israeli men started haranguing me, claiming I did not know what I was talking about. Mentioning Yesh Gvul, Gush Shalom, the Shministim and the Israeli Defence Force refuseniks only made one of them angrier. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we were in Israel and I had a gun I would kill you because you are protecting killers,â&#x20AC;? he said. When Snr Constable I A MacDonald and two officers arrived following complaints about â&#x20AC;&#x153;my offensive languageâ&#x20AC;?, the ex-IDF man repeated the threat. The police took both our details and said a report would be written. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This incident highlights the reality of life in the Occupied

Territories for Palestinians and Gazans. If this ex-soldier sincerely wanted to kill me simply for speaking out against the Israeli government, accusing them of war crimes, what chance do Palestinians have when they protest the destruction of family houses, confiscation of land and destruction of wells and olive trees? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We Gaza Freedom Marchers had better hope that we do not encounter Israeli soldiers who share this manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s values.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Mr Smith will travel to Gaza with 13 other Australians for a Peace March on New Years Eve along with 1,000 others from 40 countries. Prior to that they will be meeting up with a Viva Palestina convoy of about 100 vehicles from the UK and Ireland carrying medical supplies, clothing and other essentials. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about Gaza and the bombardment of Gaza â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Israel out!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he shouted into his loudspeaker. He told The Echo that he had equipped himself with

a Multiple Entry Visa (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;People can get into Gaza but often canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get outâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, he said) which should ensure a safe exit.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He plans to take humanitarian supplies into Gaza and is calling for donations of childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clothing, medical supplies or cash to Canberra Program for Peace, Commonwealth Bank, BSB 06 2919 A/C No 00922173. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I will document as fully as possible how donations are used,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Smith said.

SCU researcher seeks local Chinese history Local archaeologist and Southern Cross University Honours student Theresa Gilroy has launched a study into Chinese archaeological sites in far north-eastern NSW. The study has three stages, interviews with local knowledge holders, site visits and map generation. Theresa is calling for people with knowledge of Chinese activities, artefacts and structures to contact her on 6684 1498 or by email at tgilro.10@scu. edu.au. Written accounts can also be sent to her at the School of Environmental Science and Management, PO Box 157, Lismore 2480.

Theresa is particularly keen to hear from senior members of the community who have memories of Chinese people from the first half of the 20th century, or who remember stories told to them by friends and family members. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Much of this information has never been recorded,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Theresa. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We are in danger of losing this knowledge if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t document it soon.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; As well as asking people to contact her directly she also encourages friends and family of senior citizens to question them about any memories they have about Chinese people and

places. This information can be written down or recorded and submitted as an email attachment. Participants will not be identified in the study unless they request to be. All participants will receive a copy of the studyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s results. This information and GPS site recordings will be used to generate maps that indicate the location and time frame of Chinese sites in far north-eastern NSW. Theresa hopes that her study will increase the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awareness of our Chinese history. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Most people are not aware of the extent of Chinese

involvement in the health, nutrition and infrastructure of our region,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she said. Last year Theresa identified the existence of 94 sites in the region which she classified into five main phases â&#x20AC;&#x201C; pastoral, mining, market gardening, banana growing and permanent family. Site types include stone terraces, wells and causeways, and wooden houses, sheds and stores. Last year Theresa identified the location of a market garden in Byron Bay. She is particularly keen to find anyone with knowledge of the whereabouts of the Alstonville Chinese market garden.

Coming out for mental health Mandy Nolan

It takes a lot of courage to come out in public and tell people you have a mental health issue. For Crackers & Jam organiser, performer and Bay FM presenter Gina Baker, singing in the choir and speaking at the cabaret about her experiences is a challenge she is eager but a little nervous to face. ‘This is huge for me as a person. I am coming out and saying I have a mental health issue. It’s like coming out! I’ve already come out in my sexuality [as a lesbian], I would say this coming out is even scarier! ‘There is so much stigma around mental health and traditionally we are maligned in films as murderers or psychopaths. There isn’t a culture of acceptance.’ Fellow organiser Anna Samson agrees and is keen to point out the importance of reframing illness and seeing it as a normal part of the fabric of our wider community. Gina laughs: ‘Normal is just a setting on a washing machine. The concert is about letting the community see that people have something to offer.’ According to Gina, the biggest hurdle for people with mental health issues is identity. ‘It shouldn’t define who you are, but it can, people start to stereotype you as the person with bipolar or the depressive. It’s just a part of the picture, it isn’t who you are.’ Anna Sansom is the musical director for On Track. Anna’s musical therapy has metamorphosed into a musical project: Amada Ensemble. ‘The idea to perform came from the people in Amada. The muscians were so enthusiastic and talented and creative. It started as a jam session [hence crackers and jam] and it just

Gina Baker and Anna Sansom, organisers of the Crackers & Jam concert.

grew from there. Music gives people a release from the grind and the creative aspect allows everyone to contribute.’ Anna and Gina both believe that the community needs to be more aware of what it means to have a mental health issue, and how that impacts on people’s lives. ‘A lot of people are strong and courageous,’ says Anna, ‘dealing with inner turmoil and the stigma. I actually prefer working at On Track than I do being a music teacher in other settings.’ Mental health issues touch us all. ‘One in five Australians deal with mental health issues,’ says Gina, ‘it’s not us and them, it’s all of us. So what do people who have struggled and felt marginalised bring to the music that is different to regular groups? ‘It adds a realness to the music, what I notice is that you hear the depth of emotion,’ says Anna, ‘and the depth of the joy that it brings to people.’

Crackers & Jam kicks off at the Bangalow A&I Hall on Thursday at 7pm. I’ll be the MC and the keynote address is by University of Sydney’s Professor Meg Smith. There is a performance by Rod Gibson, standup comedy, The Hearing Voices Choir, The Buttery Recovery Choir, Namatjera Brothers, Amada Ensemble and the Nia Dance Group. Tickets are $25 for adults, $17

for concession and kids under 12 are $9. Tickets available at Barebones in Bangalow on 6687 1393 or Private Life in Byron, 6685 6734. The performance is integral in awareness raising and moving towards a culture of inclusion and acceptance. As Gina puts it very simply, ‘It’s a way to express yourself and find belonging and most of all people need to feel connected.’

With the Australian and NZ Governments issuing a crackdown on alcohol and antisocial behaviour it’s a timely indicator to look closer to home to see what’s happening in Byron Shire and in particular Byron Bay. Changes to state government approvals have seen the Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing providing a new approval system that appears to go against local government and police submissions that raise concerns and grant extended trading hours. In Byron Bay there are a number of applications to extend trading hours of nightclubs. The consequences of

4am trading in Byron Bay could dramatically change the focus of the town and the strengthening of the identification as a party town. With the extended trading hours it could mean all night partying and then patrons on the streets after 4am with no need for accommodation but able to wander the town until daylight. It’s essential to consider how a change in the liquor licensing would impact on the community. There is little doubt that increased access to alcohol would make a difference to the character of the town and diminish the safety for the community. It would also mean an additional workload for the police but would not necessar-

ily mean additional police being allocated to the area. Of great concern is the identity of Byron Bay if these licence applications are approved. Byron Bay deserves to be identified with being more than an alcohol fuelledparty town. The identity of the tourism location as a drinking town that provides an all night party is not a sustainable choice and the concerns and safety of the community must be considered. There is already such a strong focus on alcohol and as a community we must consider the message this sends to young people and the example that is being set. I will be writing to the Min-

ister this week to raise concerns about the current licensing processes and the Local Government Association Executive has resolved as a result of the state conference to raise late night alcohol trading issues with the Minister’s office. I was successful at a meeting in having the specific needs and concerns of regional communities included as a separate priority for consideration. A concerted effort by the community to make submissions to the applications could make the difference and I encourage residents to take the time to view the applications and put forward their views. See www.olgr.nsw.gov.au/application_noticeboard.asp.

The Nightrider shuttle bus service, initiative of the Byron Bay Liquor Accord, is, according to Accord member Luke Thomas, ‘up and running, with patronage increasing each week.’ The main issue, he told The Echo, has been with the ticket purchase, with some confusion as to where they can be obtained. ‘There’s been a few hiccups there’, he said, ‘but they should be ironed out with the licensed venues.’ He added, however, that if people were still having problems finding tickets they should contact the Nightrider driver on 0419 848 875. On the whole, reports have been exceedingly favourable regarding customers of the service, which transports patrons

to and from Baywood Chase, Suffolk Park, Sunrise and town on Friday and Saturday nights. ‘People have been great’, enthused Luke, ‘and the driver has already been getting some regular customers who are really pleased with the service. We’re still asking all restaurants to get on board and be part of it as their customers are regular offenders of drink-driving.’ In addition to this initiative, the Liquor Accord is also about to introduce the Nightwatch Radio Link Program, whereby all licensed premises will be linked by a radio communications network. An agreement with a taxi company to co-lease their radio tower will enable them to hook into an already existing system, so that venues can be notified immediately of troublesome customers.

War comes to the Dendy

What started out as a bit of a lark is now receiving a big screen release at the Byron Bay Dendy on December 23. On a budget of only $200 a bunch of local teenagers have produced a movie described so far only as ‘the war film’ set in WWII and inspired by Saving Private Ryan (which had a slightly larger budget). With a cast of ten, the film was four years in the making. Tickets cost $5 and the producers warn it is not suitable for children under 13 and contains, naturally, war themes.

Tony explores the realms of fantasy Volume 24 #28

December 15, 2009

Ross vents Compared with the Tweed Shire councillors, our Byron mob are The Mild Bunch. In the Tweed you get old school politics with plenty of abuse and the gleeful support of overdevelopment. In Byron you get a bit of heated niggle during council meetings but not much more. So Cr Ross Tuckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outburst over the Draft Coastal Zone Management Plan (CZMP) and green councillors in general comes as something of a refreshing change. You can read about his frustrations and Tom Tabartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response to them on page 15. Ross has obviously been lobbied by the Belongil Progress Association (BPA) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as has the entire known world. It is passing strange, however, that Rossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments are distributed to the news media by BPA member Ian Evans when Ross is entirely capable of contacting reporters himself. It gives a somewhat ventriloquial role to Mr Evans, which is not Rossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usual style at all. Whoever wrote the press release, there is nothing of substance in it by way of elucidating flaws in the CZMP, merely a timely reminder to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;lodge objectionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by December 22. This is not like Ross at all: in council meetings he gives the impression he has read the agenda items and usually has a number of reasons at hand when putting his case for or against an item. The main thrust of the BPA/Tucker document seems to be a whinge about a council which is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;incapable of making decisionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a council of which Ross is a member. His blast at his â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Green colleaguesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lacks definition. The Greens themselves hold four seats, which is not a voting majority, and independent Basil Cameron and OSF member Patrick Morrisey do not necessarily vote with the Greens. Even Ross and his party sidekicks Tony Heeson and Diane Woods have been known to vote with the Greens â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there have been quite a few unanimous votes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so who exactly is incapable of making decisions? Ross has invented â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the big steel filing cabinetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in which many of Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policies languish. It harks back to Cr Anudhi Wentworthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bottom drawerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of the 1990s which contained a wealth of forgotten planning documents. As to the cabinetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contents, Ross kindly supplied the media with a spreadsheet of antique policies buried deeper than Tutankhamenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tomb, possibly under the Belongil sands. Among them are the Byron Settlement Strategy, which got derailed long before this mob, and the Sand Lobe off Cape Byron Study, which was abandoned because of prohibitive costs, no doubt to the chagrin of Belongil landowners, as the plan was to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;refreshâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; the beachfront from that lobe. The costs of hiring consultants to do reports or work on policies are ridiculous, and I would agree with Ross there, but this council does not stand out among councils in the last 20 years in its ability to accumulate bumf. Ross forgot to mention the separate steel filing cabinet required for the Byron Bay bypass studies. As to Rossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motives: he is not likely to declare his hand to The Echo, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take a few guesses. He wants to support the BPA â&#x20AC;&#x201C; fair enough. He is genuinely frustrated with Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lack of progress on some fronts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be? He is positioning himself for another grasp at the crown of thorns the mayor wears. Though the 2012 election is a long way off, it may be Rossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last best chance, especially as Jan Barham is likely to be enjoying a seat in the NSW legislative council. Or perhaps Ross just took pity on the local news hacks and threw us a juicy bone. Council is not just about accumulating policies. While Ross is rummaging around in musty filing cabinets, visit www.byron. nsw.gov.au and take a look around. For the ultimate thrill, attend a council meeting. Go on, I dare you. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Michael McDonald, editor

ony Abbott will no doubt take great comfort from the words of a woman who attended a gathering of global warming unbelievers addressed by Professor Ian Plimer recently. According to a news report, as the woman was leaving she was accosted by a sceptical (in the correct sense of the word) journalist, who asked her if she was aware that Plimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work had been comprehensively refuted and discredited by his scientific peers. Certainly she was, the woman replied, and added brightly: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We all know Ian Plimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a charlatan, but he says the things that we want to hear.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; This would appear to justify Abbottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s political strategy on the way to the next election. Say anything, no matter how implausible, deceitful, irrational or just plain silly, as long as it is what people want to hear â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or at least what a fair number of them say they want to hear. Abbott has cheerfully admitted that he is a political weathervane, always ready to swing with the prevailing popular breeze. His supporters say that he speaks from the heart, but that is only accurate in that it admits the absence of the brain. His performance last week on the cost of an ETS with a target of 15 percent ($400 billion?) or 25 percent (half a trillion? No I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say that. Anyway thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no modelling. There is? Well I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen it and anyway itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out of date and who cares because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a great big tax anyway) showed such a cavalier disregard for the facts that he clearly didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect any one to believe him. It was simply

T

about appealing to the emotions, and the more selfish and ignorant his audience, the better. This is also the basis on which he has chosen his shadow cabinet, a group so preposterous that even he must have known that they would not be taken seriously. The idea of Phillip Ruddock, Kevin Andrews and Bronwyn Bishop actually taking con-

Joyce has been generally portrayed as parliamentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resident clown, the undisputed star of the Coalitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Funniest Home Videos. As such, he is widely appreciated and even admired, but this does not mean that he to be treated as a national authority on anything other than accountancy in the hamlet of St George. He obviously aspires to the role of a jester in the

Abbottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supporters say that he speaks from the heart, but that is only accurate in that it admits the absence of the brain. by Mungo MacCallum trol of portfolios at any time in the future is not a credible one. The team is designed for opposition, not government; but even there Abbott is making some pretty hairy assumptions. The gruesome trio are, he claims, fighters, fired up and ready for an allin political brawl. But are they really? Last week they came across less as seasoned warriors than as mad and grumpy old farts. The only real surprise was not to find Wilson Tuckey in their midst. And then, of course, there is Barnaby Joyce, the subject of many respectful, if somewhat bemused, profiles over the weekend. The consensus seemed to be that Joyce has emerged as a considerable figure, one of the yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s movers and shakers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly true that Joyce has commanded a great deal of media attention in the last 12 months, but very little of it has been complimentary.

Shakespearean tradition, a wise fool who dares to speak truths too shocking for more sober mortals. But he is more often seen as a vaudevillian taking one prat-fall after another on verbal banana skins that he himself has dropped. He is certainly not the man to make the running in what Abbott anticipates will be the mother of all scare campaigns on climate change. But then, is Abbott himself? A few weeks ago he described the science as crap, and appeared to go along with Nick Minchinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea that it was all a left wing conspiracy to drive us back to the caves. Now, with the headlines coming from Copenhagen proving that just about every other political leader in the world takes it seriously, the weather vane has swung round to the idea that perhaps, just perhaps, there could be something happening, but never mind, if there is we can fix

it without actually putting a cost on carbon emissions or on anything else. This trick will be accomplished by lifting building standards, transport standards, offering tax incentives for clean energy, all sorts of really nice things. But wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t these cost money? Well, they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cost half a trillion dollars, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for sure â&#x20AC;Ś Presumably the script will be refined a bit before the mother of all scare campaigns starts in earnest, but it still sounds pretty unconvincing, especially to Malcolm Turnbull, who can be relied upon to point out its failings to all his highly placed Liberal friends and to anyone else who cares to listen. Apart from the manifest inconsistencies in the message, it is all but impossible to run an effective scare campaign from opposition at any time and the more so when you are a long way behind in the polls and therefore lack anything like the clout of the incumbents. Abbottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s media cheer squad are making encouraging noises, but even they seem to have their doubts. Words like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;desperateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;last hopeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; have been replaced by â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;high riskâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; but the commentators in the Weekend Australian, while universally supportive, seemed infected by a common strain of pessimism. Not only did they lack enthusiasm for Abbottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s army of has-beens and never-will-bes, apart from the above-mentioned fascination with Barnaby Joyce. None was prepared to offer even a breath of speculation as to what an Abbott government might aspire to in office. Clearly they believe that such an eventuality remains in the realm of fantasy. Fortunately theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re right.

Proposed Optus tower an eyesore My family has lived in Byron Bay for 40 years and I have never written a letter of protest before, however this latest attempt by Optus has made me so angry I feel must write to alert the residents of this area what is going to affect more than just we immediate unlucky few. Optus with no consultation whatsoever is planning on destroying our lives by building a 40 metre (that’s more than 12 storeys) high mobile phone tower within a stone’s throw of our front door in one of the most scenic areas in the Shire. This will be visible from the Golf Course, Baywood Chase and Skinners Shoot. The site is right beside the water supply

to Suffolk Park and the local school students wait there to catch the bus every day. The original site on Coopers Shoot only required a tower half the size but as this one has to send electromagnetic radiation over our home and around the escarpment to reach Suffolk Park – it has to be gigantic. We are only a handful of residents but we are all united in objecting to this site. We may not be as powerful as those who had it withdrawn from the previous site but we will not take this lying down. I call on all those who value the beauty of this area to support us in this fight. Byron Shire Council has the final say in this DA and does

I was walking along Jonson Street on Tuesday morning pondering all the talk over the last weeks of the spirit of a Byron Bay Christmas being represented or not in a tall, plastic tree. I was trying to balance boxes of Christmas gifts for overseas friends and I was being waffled on by my two excited girls listing Christmas wishes while skipping around me. We burst into the post office to be greeted with reassuring nods and a helpful hand from behind the counter. Merry Christmas and thank you to the staff at the Byron Bay Post Office for your everpresent smiles, calm patience and senses of humour throughout the whole year.

not meet until February to consider it. Unfortunately we were only alerted to this DA days before submissions closed but I am sure they will listen to letters of concern. If you are considering using Optus please say ‘No’.

Why were we residents not consulted (only seeing it in The Echo today)? Is Optus trying to sneak it through at the busiest time of year hoping we won’t notice? It is too high, too ugly and inappropriate for the site. Put it in Suffolk Park where it’s Wendy Blumson needed. Byron Bay Alan & Denise Morden Byron Bay ■ As residents of Old Bangalow Road, we object strongly to the proposed Optus tower. It will be an eyesore on a beautiful escarpment. This area is being destroyed by big business with insensitive development. Why put it in one of the most beautiful areas in Byron? Why can’t it go with the rest of the towers at St Helena?

■ Response to Mr Wegner’s let-

ter regarding his disappointment at not being able to ask a question at the Ordinary Meeting held on December 3. As anyone who attends a Council meeting will appreciate, public access sessions are popularly attended by Byron Shire residents and ratepayers. The public access session gives priority to individuals or organisations who wish to speak for or against agenda items listed for that particular day. Speakers are required to contact Council to be placed on the public access list; only one presentation for and one presentation against may be made on an item in the business paper, with a maximum of five minutes allocated to each presentation. More than one speaker for or against an item must share the allotted time. It is not uncommon that over 20 items are listed for discussion and debate at Council’s Ordinary Meetings. This has the potential for numerous public access presentations and unfortunately they may not be continued from page 11

when melted, obviously would increase the volume of the ocean. This is the kind of psuedo science (I was referring to in my previous letter) that is baffling the general populace and will ultimately lead to indifference and despair. Look, to make it easy, go and google ice and volume displacement, or to the point, melting Arctic polar cap and sea level rise, so I can save my breath. Physics and real science confirm my statement. To clarify, I am not a denier of humanity’s destruction of our environment. We need much more radical change than mere carbon offsets/cred-

all possible in the allocated one and a half hours prior to the official start of the meeting. Questions from the gallery are held at the end of public access sessions and may be taken on notice.

General Manager Byron Shire Council ■ When I recently criticised Council’s vague resolution re holiday letting (the most poorly drafted resolution I’ve seen) I didn’t expect Jan Barham to take issue, any more than she replied to any of the other criti-

Walk the talk? If Bluesfest is really as ‘green’ as they’d like people to believe (Echo, December 8), why have they lodged no less than eight Section 96 applications to Council to water down conditions of consent, including arrangements for water connections and shortening the

<echowebsection=Letters>

cisms I’ve levelled over the past year. She did surprise me the following week, however, when she used the demise of Splendour to suggest that this was actually a good thing because it would result in less holiday letting and more housing for locals. In other words, instead of rejecting my prediction that nothing would happen over holiday letting, she chose the back door by putting out propaganda to the effect that her mind (as opposed to her actions) was still focused on it. Never mind the obvious fact that not a single holiday letter will close down because one week of Splendour overcharging will be deleted from the calendar. I wonder whether it was Council’s (full time) Media Liaison Officer or Jan herself who thought of this opportunistic little spin. But it couldn’t have been the (full time) Media Liaison Officer because as everyone knows, this position requires unrelenting obeisance to the banks of CNN, Fox Media, ABC and New York

Times reporters who camp permanently outside the Council chambers waiting for a titbit or morsel to convey to their anxious worldwide audience. No, it must have been Jan’s idea. She after all is the one who has so much time up her sleeve that she can do not only the Mayor bit, but also the State Upper House. The total benefits from doing both would be about $4,000 per week. Not bad, eh? Most of the Councillors’ attendance requirements have been shrunk to an average of less than one day a week, and Jan is adamant in her adherence to a pre-set timetable into which everything must be crammed, even if it means chopping off significant parts of public access, sweeping inconvenient truths under the carpet and ignoring complaints about what’s going on – all of which can be easily dealt with in any case by Council’s (full time) Media Liaison Officer in terms of spin, diversion and photo-ops.

trouble, not so with the people who visited our clubs. People were so appreciative of the club venues and so considerate of the property and staff that we were able to enjoy the event nearly as much as the ticket holders. We were pleased to be able to provide some respite from the heat on Saturday afternoon, as the mercury soared so did the crowd numbers in our lounge area with everyone taking advantage of the airconditioning and cold drinks. We had a pram traffic jam as families packed the lounge and the bigger, more mobile kids played pool and skittered around on the carpet while their parents sank back into the lounge chairs and braced themselves for the next event on the program. My apologies to those who may have been annoyed about the sign-in process, unfortunately it is a legal requirement of the State and we are bound to insist on this procedure. Next year, due to a law change, the process will change for the better as visitors will be able to sign in for up to seven days at a time, negating the need to sign in every day. We will also implement a wristband system for those who have signed in so that they may come and go from both clubs as they please over the weekend. Thank you to our members whose good nature and understanding allowed us a

appoximately one third of the wholesale price. Obviously this is not sustainable. It looks to me that big businesses are trying to do whatever they can to drive out small businesses, and if they do I am certain that their DVD pricing will go up, leaving consumers no option but to pay more. Whatever they decide I’d like the ACCC to have a say about this. It is creating an unlevelplaying field and if it continues it could devastate small business across the country. Ken Gentle

Connect the dots

As a small business owner I am extremerly concerned with the the recent pricing strategies of Coles and Woolworths. They have recently had both Harry Potter and Ice Age 3 on sale for $10 or less (over 60% below the industry wholesale price) if I buy a certain amount of groceries at the same time. While it looks like an incredible saving, it potentially means that consumers are being charged more for our essential groceries to support the cost of this DVD. In addition, it means that my DVD store and others are unable to compete with this pricing. Furthermore it is creating the consumer perception that you don’t need to spend more than $10 on a new release DVD which is

A few weeks ago Cr Tom Tabart explained to Fast Buck$ (in a letter to The Echo) that Councillors have no role in operational matters. Nonetheless, we have finally seen some action from Council on behalf of the citizens of Byron Shire. First the trees on Jonson Street were saved, and now, hopefully, the sports field at Ewingsdale will be saved too, by overriding staff recommendations. Perhaps Councillors will now ‘connect the dots’ and question why staff would sabotage the sports field by submitting an inflated estimate of the costs involved (including $1 million for a canteen.) Could it be that staff is concerned that we will find out that there are indeed consequences to

the losses in the investment funds? Is that why they wish to prevent any expenditure from these depleted funds? In any event, it is good to see Councillors taking responsibility rather than playing the role of cheerleaders for the bureaucrats. It is about time! Ephraim Sella

Coastal solutions In the current debate on the Draft Coastal Zone Management Plan there is an unfortunate amount of divisiveness that is polarising our community. The plan itself is laden with a sense of doom. ‘The end is nigh’ it shouts, we must all head for the hills! This current context constrains our options and prevents a creative engagement with the problem. Rather than adapt, it sets us up for a long struggle, legally, socially and economically. It also creates a sense of uncertainty and abandonment among the coastal homeowners, causing them to become defensive and combative. After all, we all will defend our homes, sometimes to the death. Fortunately a small ray of light has fallen on this unhappy situation.

Ross eats the greens, Tom taunts back Late on Monday December 7 Byron Shire Councillor Ross Tucker issued a press release, calling on residents to lodge objections to the Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Coastal Zone Management Plan before December 22. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This Plan will be disastrous for the Shire and for everyone who lives and works here,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yet another example of Councillors placing their own political agenda ahead of the interests of the residents and ratepayers of Byron Shire. The residents of this Shire should be aware that the CZMP will be a blight on our community forever.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cr Tucker also attacked â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the Green groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Council for policies which are â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;extremely costly, wasteful and foolish. This Council is incapable of making decisions.

Cr Ross Tucker, left, and Cr Tom Tabart.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Individually these documents and consultancies cost anywhere between $20,000 and $100,000. Cumulatively they cost ratepayers and taxpayers (some grant funds are used) millions. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I see their policies and planning as negative, anti-people, hardline and un-Australian ideology that would have us â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Do nothingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bring back the dark ages.

This was a practice. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There is a belief among some while ago and I am not sure of councillors that once you have his current position. a policy you have completed â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;While grudgingly agreeing the task.

It is a milch cow for every entity it engages and pays outrageous prices for poor services. The fact that many of our initiatives languish unresolved does not mean they are not worthy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; do we sit on our hands because we operate in a dysfunctional environment? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This little spray to the media â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it is his constant theme in Council session â&#x20AC;&#x201C; may be a ranging shot for the next council elections which must be this ageing troglodyteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last hurrah.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

The dragon’s secret neural processes Story & photo Mary Gardner

This particular water dragon, out in the open, ignored people walking by who, in turn, ignored it. But as I focused my camera and approached the creature, it became aware of me. It stopped on the hot pavement and turned its head. As the morning glare interfered with each photo, I angled closer. Unnerved, it picked its way down into the rocks. Before it disappeared, just before I snapped the photo, we were looking eye to eye. What are these lizards I find by the sea but never in it? Reports say the Australian eastern water dragon Physignathus lesueurii lives near freshwater and swims well. There isn’t a word about their beach life. This one has a dark belly and chin which might mean it is a female. The males are supposedly red in these spots. If it is female, has she perhaps recently finished with digging a burrow and laying eggs? The breeding season is said to be in October and November. The dozen or so eggs will produce males or females depending on the temperature of the nest, not the chromosomes of the embryos. Cooler temperatures favour the development of females. Typically, water dragons only range about 75 metres, so might a nest be nearby? Needing three months for incubation, hatchlings could appear in the next month or so. What will they make of their home, the Main Beach and central zone of Byron Bay? Water dragons eat insects, worms, frogs, other reptiles as well as fruit. I suppose both adults and youngsters can find the food they need. And as for being arboreal? Newcomer that I am here, I have yet to see them in tree branches. But these are simple mysteries compared to the ones deep in the depths of those dark eyes. I search for facial expressions I can relate to, but fail. The reptile faces are so unlike those of us primates. I am left baffled.

www.echo.net.au

Maybe the scaly reptile skin is too different from our hairy mammalian skin. But reptiles and mammals are related. One of the traits we have in common is that our skeletons feature backbones and four limbs. Our skulls differ, though. Their skulls, apart from eye sockets and nostrils, have two extra holes. We have only one. But our brains have similarities. Now for centuries, scientists explained these similarities and crucial differences as part of the Scala Naturae, a great hierarchy of life. European Man was at the top, followed by his woman. From here paraded a long line including every other form of life. They ranked in a descending scale down to the most primitive form. In the late 1800s and early 1900s, evolution was another part of the evidence supporting and explaining this great ladder of life. The reptile brain gave way to the superior mammal one. The story was that over eons, dim-witted dinosaurs gave way to sharp thinking rodents and eventually primates. But by 1930, the Scala Naturae was being broken. One leading researcher causing change

was Tilly Edinger, a German woman. She was the first to use casts of the inside of fossil skulls to understand more accurately how brains evolved. These models clearly showed the detail of soft tissues long gone. The different parts of the brain, processing different sensory information, could be correctly identified. Edinger set up the new science of paleoneurology. She used biology with geology to reveal the behaviour and lifestyles of extinct dinosaurs, sea cows, whales, horses, amphibians and bats. During World War Two, this work became her passport from persecution in Nazi Germany and into life as an academic at Harvard University, Cambridge, USA. Her work revealed a more sophisticated understanding of how evolution changed the original vertebrate brain. Over time, its three main parts were developed in ways unique to each species. By the time of her death in 1967, the story of brain evolution was freeing itself of the elitist views of the Scala Naturae. Paul MacLean, a neuroscientist, set this emancipation back with his idea that the human

brain was a three-in-one package. He thought the reptile, early mammal and advanced mammal brains were in us all today. He saw our problematic behaviours as merely reflecting this evolutionary heritage. But more careful research shows what we actually share. There is no ‘reptile brain’ but a familiar set of nerve cells in the brain stem. These have been useful for all us vertebrates before we split into reptiles, birds and mammals. These cells in this arrangement have been a good thing for 280 million years. Other parts of our different brains changed, leading to new skills. But the tissues of thinking still have similarities. That’s why some workers suggest that reptiles have a passive type of consciousness, full of ‘raw feels’. They also suppose there may be some level of active consciousness, with intention. These are based on neural processes quite unlike the thinking systems of us mammals. What I am looking at on those rocks is also looking at me. The water dragon and I are like long parted family members. In each other’s absence, we picked up new body language, mannerisms and habits. These new quirks make it almost impossible to understand each other. Almost.

Market blues My daughter and her friends have recently discovered the joys of selling goods at community markets. Their experiences have been mainly positive. However, they recently applied to the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;illustriousâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Byron Markets. Just to fill in forms and be interviewed they had to drive from Tweed to Byron on Wednesday prior to Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s market and pay $60 for two sites up front, no guarantees of a position but a promise of a refund if no site available. They then had to drive to Byron early on market day, still none the wiser, so they were obviously fully loaded with stock. You can guess the rest â&#x20AC;&#x201C; no site available and no refund offered â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve run out of refund moneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. One gent who had paid his $30 on the Sunday of the market was told â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give you a refund because we have run out of refund moneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Candle burning but no one home! Mark Ryding

Salt solution Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m no climate change sceptic, but for me the cause is not clear. Nor is there consensus across the scientific community, notwithstanding crackpots and fruitloops. If CO2 emissions are causing imminent global catastrophe, then molten salt (590°C) as a medium for storage of harnessed solar energy provides the capacity to deliver base load and dispatchable power with two monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s autonomy. No more cloudy and overnight intermittency worries. Two months to convert the sunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rays onto the grid. Dig it? No CO2 emissions, guaranteed energy prices for the next 25 years. End of crisis. The waste salt simply becomes fertiliser (sodium nitrate) and is harmlessly returned to the soil. If our rulers are sincere about protecting our biosphere, solutions are here, now, without the need to tax. The grotesquely greedy corporations and their ever-hungry shareholders would prefer to pour billions into sequestering coal so it remains business as usual until they invent it, then business as usual once they invent it.

Something exciting is happening in the hip hop hood. Bless tha Beatz is an all ages, drug and alcohol free hip hop show that is bringing together upcoming and established artists from Byron, Tweed and Ballina Shires. The show, hopefully the first of many, aims to put the spotlight on local hip hop as well as providing safe, affordable entertainment for youth over

the summer holidays. Bless tha Beatz is one of many in the Brunswick Community Drug Action Team’s (CDAT) youth summer activities program, which is funded by the North Coast Area Health Service Drug and Alcohol Unit. The team aims to reduce drug and alcohol related harm by providing positive, healthy and life enhancing experiences for young people over the summer, instead of them getting bored or wasted.

Local hip hopper and an organiser of Bless tha Beatz, Tanina Millis, told The Echo, ‘CDAT have provided us with a golden opportunity. Not only are we learning how to organise and present events, this will also be the first performance for some of the artists, myself included. ‘We hope to make Bless tha Beatz a regular event. We are very grateful to the dedicated volunteers at CDAT for making our dreams possible.’

You can enjoy and support the flourishing local hip hop scene at Bless tha Beatz on December 19 at 6pm at Brunswick Memorial Hall on Fingal Street, entry by gold coin donation. Raffle tickets with two tickets to Splendour in the Grass as first prize will also be available on the night, drawn on Australia Day. If you want to find out more about, or help organise, any activities run by CDAT, phone Michele on 6680 3163.

YOUR TOWN AND YOUR HOME OR BUSINESS IS IN DANGER! All property within one kilometre of the high water mark in Byron Shire will be affected by Council’s Coastal Zone Management Plan. The CZMP will have a severe and permanent effect on values throughout the Shire and on our prosperity and employment. Would you buy a house or business that you might have to demolish? When the demolitions begin, people will be left standing in the street with no home and a mortgage to pay.

Several thousand houses and other properties in Byron Bay, New Brighton, South Golden Beach, Suffolk Park, Belongil, Clarkes Beach and Tallow Beach will be affected. If the sea comes to within 20 metres of any building in the zone: s Council will cancel its development approval and obtain a court order for demolition s You will not be allowed to take any action to protect your home s You will have to pay for the demolition s There will be no compulsory acquisition, no compensation and no appeal The CZMP is a bad policy, supported by hardline Green councillors and sympathisers in Council, that has negative consequences for residents and property owners.

WORRIED? YOU SHOULD BE! Your life and the inheritance of your children will be severely damaged by this. The CZMP is now on public display. You have very limited time to protest! THE CLOSING DATE FOR OBJECTIONS IS 22 DECEMBER Make your submission online at Council’s website, deliver it personally or by mail to Byron Shire Council PO Box 219 Mullumbimby 2482.

Angel’s image the people’s favourite Winner of the 2009 SNAP Youth Photography Competition’s People’s Choice Award is Angel Scarf. One hundred and twenty seven people voted for their favourite image in the SNAP exhibition, which included more than 150 photographs, and obviously the people agreed with the competition’s judges, because Angel’s winning image, right, was also highly commended by judges in the category I Wish (colour) 18-24 years. Angel’s prize package (worth over $1,000), included $500 in cash from Byron Youth Service, a $300 gift voucher from 2481 Clothing, a $250 voucher from Crystal Castle, and the opportunity to participate in professional photo shoots and to be mentored in the field of commercial photography. Angel was thrilled with her win. She plans to purchase a new camera with her cash prize and select birthday and christmas gifts for her family with the vouchers. See more at www.bys.org.au.

showcase contemporary and traditional artworks by leading regional artists, depicting the flora, fauna and landscapes of the entire Caldera region. It aims to further promote regional biodiversity values and conservation initiatives. Favian’s entry, one of the 43 submitted finalists, was entitled ‘Closed Forests of The Caldera’. He told The Echo that it was both his first major piece and his first win, involving ‘a solid 3-4 months of studio time working on it.’ It was, he said, ‘only this year that I’ve felt ready. I graduated from TAFE with a certificate in art and design in 1992 but it’s taken me this long to feel ready.’ Asked whether the piece he had submitted was representative of his usual style, he replied that he had ‘two major styles – one very illustrative, which suits publishing, and this one which is a combination of

semi-realism and the intuitive impressions and feelings I experience. It’s breaking realism down into patterns and shapes... I’m reluctant to move too close to making something look too real.’ He described the exhibition, held at the Centre gallery in Beaudesert, as ‘stunning’.

Threefold launch for Bruns chamber Story & photo Eve Jeffery

The Brunswick Heads Hotel became a launch pad last Wednesday when the Chamber of Commerce presented their new website, the Brunswick River Guide and the results of the latest Brunswick Heads Business survey. The new website was launched in answer to the growing needs of the consumer and the realisation that people using the site had much higher expectations than they did four years ago. The chamber received a grant toward the upgrade when they applied to Industry and Investment NSW earlier this year and local web designer Yari McGauley from Evolved Websites was engaged to carry out the upgrade. One of the major benefits of the new website apart from its superior search capabilities, is the facility for chamber members to have their own page on the site, something that many small businesses do not have through lack of technical knowhow. The other highlight of the combined launch was the unveiling of the Brunswick River Guide, an A2 folding brochure which contains three large

maps as well as a history of the river, information about the surrounding nature reserves, ecology, mangroves, bird life and wild life and how to care for them. The guide also provides fishing and boating rules and safety tips, eco-friendly activities for the water and foreshore which includes paddling trips, launch areas and sights to look out for on the way.

The Brunswick Heads Business Expansion and Retention Survey (BRE) was also presented at the event, the responses from 114 business surveyed providing invaluable data in three main areas: tracking the economic health, presenting a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;snapshotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of the business sector and delivering feedback on all aspects of doing business in Bruns â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one of the main out-

comes from the survey being the wish to maintain the village atmosphere while promoting â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Simple Pleasuresâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The new website will go live on Friday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; visit www. brunswickheads.org.au â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the Brunswick River Guide is available at the Visitor Information Centre in Park street where you can also view the Business Survey.

A GREAT RANGE OF COLLECTIBLES

Stephanieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pilgrimage walks into print There has been a resurgence of interest in pilgrimage in recent years. Some do it for fun, others do it as spiritual penance or guidance and others have no idea what is calling them to walk long distances through alien lands â&#x20AC;&#x201C; only that they have to obey the call. Mullumbimby local Stephanie Dale falls into the last category. But if you ask her now, in hindsight, why she walked across Italy and through the Balkans to Albania and be-

yond, she will tell you â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;to walk the turning wheelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Stephanieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son Ben walked from Canterbury, in England, to Jerusalem. His mission: to

show that regardless of politics, religion or culture, anywhere in the world he would be met with goodwill. Stephanie joined him in Rome and set out with him for Istanbul. Her mission: to understand the Law of Reflection. Stephanieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book about her journey was launched last week by Byron Bay Writersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Festival director Jeni Caffin, who said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;this is one hell of a brave woman!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; My Pilgrimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heart: A womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journey through marriage

and other foreign lands is a Western womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exploration of her relationship to the masculine world â&#x20AC;&#x201C; starting with her husband and adult son, and radiating out from there. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incredible the resonance people have with this material,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It has initiated the kinds of conversations we need to be having about the dynamics of power in our relationships, both domestic and global.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; My Pilgrimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heart is available in all local bookshops.

As the season of high consumption and last minute gift buying approaches, the North East Waste Forum (NEWF) and Byron Shire Council encourages everyone to make their Christmas a carbon cool one, by reducing waste and saving energy and water by avoiding unnecessary purchases, packaging and products. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Christmas generates much waste and greenhouse gas emissionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Karen Rudkin, Education Project Coordinator with the North East Waste Forum.â&#x20AC;&#x153;The amount of waste that goes to landďŹ ll over the festive season is higher than any other time of the year and much of this increase in waste is packaging and food waste that in many cases, can be avoided, reused or recycled. Avoiding waste can be a lot of fun, as it often requires some creative thinking that will make your gifts or celebrations stand-out from the restâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Below are some hot tips from the NEWF and your Council about ways that you can â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;live the spirit of Christmas without it costing the Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

Feasting at Christmas In NSW alone, householders throw out more than 800,000 tonnes of food a year to landďŹ ll. In total Australians throw out over $5.3 billion worth of edible food every year. Food production and consumption accounts for 28 per cent of the average householdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greenhouse gas emissions, so follow the tips below to reduce your householdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s carbon footprint and to stop wasting food. s3AVECASHBYPLANNINGMEALSANDSHOPPINGWITHALISTTO avoid over-buying. s"UYLOCALLYSOURCEDANDSEASONALFOODWITHMINIMAL packaging. s5SEFOODLEFTOVERSBYTHROWINGTHEMINTOSALADS SOUPS stir fry etc. s3ETUPACOMPOSTORWORMFARMTOEATYOURFOODWASTE for you (they also make a great gift!)t s!VOIDDISPOSABLEPLATESANDCUPSORBUYBIODEGRADABLE ones which can be composted. s&OROUTDOOREVENTSPACKALOWWASTEPICNIC WHICH contains no throwaway packaging and where everything can be taken home and either re-used, composted or recycled.

trackstrackspotting potting at liquid at liquid on tueson tuesdays days

There is something entirely charming about Lou Bradley. The full bodied wild haired woman who only wears frocks made from sheets has an uncanny knack for doing things her way. Maybe thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why this girl from the Northern Beaches shied away from inner city grunge or rock and took on hillbilly pop. In 2008 she was nominated for an ARIA alongside Keith Urban in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Best Country Albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; category. Lou recalls her big night at the ARIAs and being kicked off the red carpet. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I got kicked of f the red carpet at the ARIAs because they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I was an artist. This woman with a folder comes up and says, sorry artists only on the red carpet. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know so I hopped off. My husband said that I was an artist. I was nominated. So I had to go back and tell her. She said she was very sorry. Xavier Rudd was standing next to me in his moccassins and I said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;wow you look like homeâ&#x20AC;?, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who he was, I ended up sharing the limo with him. Phil (Louâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband) said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Xavier Rudd!â&#x20AC;? I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Louâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not one for genre labeling. Launching her album two weeks ago at the Excelsior Hotel in Surrey Hills I asked whether that was telling for a city crowd, suddenly getting into country music. Lou laughs. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand for any of that crap. Music is just music.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Louâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s album, La La La not Listening is her second release, crafted at Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backyard studio, Soundhole.

It became a Chambers family affair when she finished a few more tracks with Nash Chambers in his bush studio and wrote another song with Chambersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dad, Bill. I love working with the Chambers, they are really solid and earthy and honest

and we share the same place in music, which is to keep it as real as possible.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lou Bradley walks barefoot into her career, with incredible ease. Wherever this curly haired country girl goes, doors open. Early on she secured a JB seed grant

to fund her bus trip into central Australia. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The JB Seed Project was a beginning. I thought, I can take this music thing seriouslyâ&#x20AC;Ś I am the mum of three, my eldest has just started driving. We started young you know, we have

done all the wrong things!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I asked Lou how she perceived herself. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I was one of those fat ugly girls at school. I was a bit of a slack mole! Only the nerds loved me. I realised that the nerds are cool. They seem to appreciate a woman for her body, her real shape.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lou writes all her songs about relationships, namely her relationship with Phil, father of her children, and her childhood sweetheart. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been together since I was 15. Poor old Phil cops it badly sometimes. There is this track called Curl Up and Die. I wrote it after a fight and I was like, I hate this, I want a divorce, so I wrote a song about the fantasy of leavingâ&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how you get through those tough times. Phil is one of those quiet and solid people. Falling in love and falling out of love in your relationship is what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about trying to stick with it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better the devil you know!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Country is the perfect genre for Lou. It respects women for being women, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make them wear skimpy midrift tops or employ underage back up dancers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pure, a guitar and a voice and a damn good song. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not so much about the wanky stuff, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get so much of that. I am allowed to be myself and they like it. In fact, they want to see more of it!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lou launches her new album at Wilsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Creek Hall on Friday at 7.30pm. In accordance with her generous spirit itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free! â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thats how it should beâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; she laughs.

Old Schoolies Last week I pushed my pram through hordes of schoolies. I used it as a teenage battering ram, clearing a path for the middle aged mum. They were as prolific as stingers during an onshore north-easterly, and just as annoying. I was brushed by the tentacles of beautiful young things in tiny white bikinis, sunburnt girls in maxi dresses and designer thongs, boys with no shirts on: it was awful. I felt ancient and I needed more than a shower to ease the sting.

As a mother myself I can’t help looking at them and wondering how long it was since they were last breastfed. Some look so young I can almost see the trickle of dried milk on their chins. There is dried play dough under their fingers and they can still sing all the words to ‘Get Ready to Wiggle’. Puffy faced boys suck on beers with the same tenacity as a toddler tends its bottle. Girls twiddle a strand of hair that is as immaculately ironed as their clothes are not. These are the latest batch of people, straight off the education conveyor belt. The next generation of lawyers, doctors, accountants, nurses, drug addicts, mothers, corporate scammers, computer programmers, all full of hormones and testosterone, alcohol and amphetamines, living it up for one glorious hideously expensive week of non stop hedonism. If they’re lucky they’ll have something to remember it by for the rest of their lives, like genital herpes or an assault charge. Some may have their drinks spiked and remember nothing, but hey, all those dignity defying moments are

captured in full technicolour on YouTube! How do parents who have loved and clothed and fed their children, held them tight and treated them as precious, suddenly relinquish responsibility and send them to the frontline? It’s about the most dangerous thing your kid will ever do. After all these years of ‘wear your sunscreen’, ‘put on a bike helmet’, ‘watch out for strangers’, we encourage thousands of them to gather and consume huge quanities of booze. And don’t try and tell me they’re drinking orange juice. You can’t tell me that a kid pushing a shopping trolley full of booze knows how to drink responsibly! Most adults I know don’t drink responsibly. They’re not bad kids, they’re just unsupervised. God knows what it must be like working at the hospital in emergency. It must be like being in a scene from MASH except tbe injured aren’t troops or Viet Cong, they’re middle class kids from Mosman who’ve copped a glassing, or a girl from Melbourne who’s had her drink spiked or a boy from Newtown who was beaten up for being a poof. I don’t think you can stop

28 December 15, 2009 The Byron Shire Echo

Modern rock band Highway Blonde (formerly known as Smart Artists), return to the north coast this week to play the Beach Hotel in Byron, which they are particularly excited about. ‘Absolutely!’ enthuses guitarist and lead singer Shannon Beaumont. ‘We haven’t played in Byron for a while now and with an album

of new tunes we are busting to get up there to show them off.’ Fans of the band shouldn’t be angry that they haven’t been hitting the stage too much of late. Fact is they have been busy finalising the new album Winning Ways which has now been released just in time for Christmas. The band’s name change to ‘Highway Blonde’ was born after one member was reputedly picked up at a truck stop just south of Byron Bay by none other than Paris Hilton and was then whisked away to a private party somewhere in the NSW North Coast Hinterland. ‘The response from the first two singles of the album (Inside Moves and Annie) have been phenomenal. And our new single Let it Go is certainly gaining momentum. We are so humbled by people’s reactions and the amazing support with radio airplay in around 20 countries, and on over 300 stations across the United States alone,’ says Beaumont. Winning Ways is laced with themes of love, sex, reparation, salvation, being and nothingness. The album is full of tight, tuneful songs – good time modern rock, pure and simple, the kind we hope will propel us onto many more ipods and to cap off a sensational year for the band, the Inside Moves video was awarded the 2009 Pacific Film and Television Video Award in the Best Independent Category. 2010 looks even

schoolies week, like melanoma and the Daddo family it’s here to stay. I think it’s time for a new campaign called: BYO ‘Alco-pop’. That means kids on schoolies are forced to bring their pop, their mum, their nanna or any responsible adult, kind of like the old fashioned chaperone. It means that accommodation providers, hoteliers, hospital staff and police aren’t entirely responsible for the health and wellbeing of large numbers of out-of-it and untended schoolies. The adults could carry them around in a giant baby harness, ensuring that they are monitored at all times. Right now the streets of Byron Bay and other coastal playgrounds look like someone has dumped their adolescents and nicked off for a dirty weekend. We are not a teenage daycare centre. We can’t even handle our own kids, let alone yours. Here’s to a combined Schoolies & Oldies Week next year… it’s a very retro concept based on an old fashioned and almost outdated idea called responsible parenting. Let’s call it: Old Schoolies.

It’s a Wonder Just before their last local show of the year, The Lucky Wonders launched their debut single Happy Pill. The single which hit the airwaves of Oz last week, may be attracting controversy, but the girls are quick to reply that it’s not about taking or not taking drugs, rather a call for introspection. Both the bass driven, indie pop Happy Pill and their local hit Emotional are for sale on iTunes. The Lucky Wonders have grown to a four piece with new drummer Anastassijah Scales, who adds feet lifting beats to the Luckies’ cruisy, insightful, feel good songs. This is their final gig before the band heads to Sydney. They will be joined by local singer/songwriter Mish, caressing her piano keys with her bluesy, jazz influenced songs about life, love and staying positive, who will also throw in some tasty trumpet to The Lucky Wonders’ sets. Join the gang at Lennox Point

Nostalgia aint what it used to be Glenn Miller it aint â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Big Band At The End Of The Universe is a crack team of 18 highly skilled musicians delivering music composed well before the iPod. After last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s successful gig at the Mullum Festival, they are still rehearsing weekly and adding new tunes to a repertoire that already stands at over 60 tunes. Unlike most bands, this ensemble play music for musicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sake. Uncompromising, in your face Latin and hard swing. And unlike most bands, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pander to the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s middle ground soft taste â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you know the type â&#x20AC;&#x201C; musack that provides the soundtrack to a drunken mating dance driven by nostalgia. Nope, that aint them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s driven by the passion for producing

great music that this group have been together for over three years. Their last gig for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;09 is at the Buddha Bar this Sunday from 7pm till 10pm. Laura Noble will be appearing as special guest singer. Entry is free.

Regal and regular East Coast touring L&TFY are cementing a swiftly burgeoning reputation. And what a reputation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it, press releases are partial to hyperbole but it would be no overstatement to say that Laneous and The Family Yah have recently become one of the most talked about bands in Brisbane. This has been largely due to their live show, a 10 piece spectacle that witnesses have referred to as unparalleled. Couple this with the prestigious Q Song Hip Hop Song of The Year Award for Bubblegum, both Searing Life and Bubblegum enjoying radio play nationwide including high rotation on Triple J for Searing Life and a debut LP that has both critics and fans picking their jaws up from the floor.

All the gang will be there: Sam, Jeff (if he wakes up), Anthony and Murray, as well as Wags the Dog, Dorothy the Dinosaur, Henry the Octopus and Captain Feathersword. ‘I think this show is our happiest, most musical and thrilling show ever,’ said director and Blue Wiggle Anthony Field. ‘You won’t believe your eyes when Jeff somersaults over Murray’s head!’

STARS

The heavenly trifecta of Sun, Venus and midweek new moon in energetic Sagittarius generates jumbo juice for powering through the festive agenda – though keeping plans simple and flexible is recommended for handling the astral turbulence coming up

Mungo’s Crossword

WITH LILITH

ARIES: This week’s cosmic cocktail glass fizzes with enough tonic optimism and psychic adrenalin to fuel you through the Christmas hit list and its attendant furore. Extend your warm glow to others experiencing seasonal spinout and beaucoup rewards will boomerang back over the next fortnight. TAURUS: This is a do it now as opposed to wait for calls week – a potent and promising window of opportunity with a narrow time frame. So ignore Christmas bores: focus instead on the planetary energies presently aligned in your favour and requiring your cooperation. GEMINI: Relieve yourself of last minute hurrying, flurrying and scurrying by ticking a few somethings off your to-do list each day. This week people’s behaviour gets increasingly complex (as Kath and Kim would say, different) so remember that tolerance given is tolerance more likely to be returned.

CANCER: Right now a grand butterfly’s emerging from the chrysalis of your former self. Yes it’s that big, and yes we’re talking total transformation with uncomfortable, painful moments as tension peaks between the old and the new you. Be very, very gentle with yourself this week. LEO: This week’s fiery new moon ensures you’re the major attraction factor for love, lust and money. Everyone wants what you’ve got right now, so seize the day and work it while circumstances are in your favor, and before the cosmos starts applying the brakes again. VIRGO: So much to do and so little interest in doing it? Rather just put your feet up? The past year’s been somewhat of an annus horribilis, so that’s an excellent idea. You’ll feel even less like doing it next week, but why worry when home’s the best place at present anyway?

LIBRA: This week’s festive smorgasbord features demanding partying and lively flirtations with your leading lady Venus in sassy Sagittarius encouraging you to be as wild and cheeky as you please – guaranteed to have others humming round you like honey bees because you make them feel good. SCORPIO: Venus buffing up both your love lustre and money mojo makes this is an enjoyably fortunate and dynamic period for the Scorp clan, so resist the impulse to play it safe – this week’s on the lookout for creative flair, fresh ideas and an adventurous approach. SAGITTARIUS: With Sun, Venus and new moon in Sagittarius, this is your week – but there’s zero respite from the festive treadmill till the fat man hits the chimney, so mental serenity’s imperative. Bar access to all negative thoughts about life, yourself or anyone else.

CHESS by Ian Rogers Play at Byron Services Club, Mon 7-10pm

Zhigen Lin from Scotch College at the Australian Schools Championships

The Australian Schools Championships, which were held in Melbourne last weekend, proved to be a triumph for Victoria and Queensland who shared the four available titles. Hosts and defending titleholders Scotch College blitzed the Secondary Open division, scoring a record 19 out of a possible 20 points. More worryingly for rival schools, Scotch’s star pair, Zhigen Lin and Eugene Schon,

will be eligible to compete for many years to come. Victoria also took out the Primary Open Division, with Mount View Primary similarly dominant. Queensland took home the girls’ titles, Somerset College and Somerville House both showing the benefits of decade-long school chess programs to win the Secondary Girls and Primary Girls divisions respectively. Somerville, led by the nation’s top 12-year-old girl player, Leteisha Simmonds, who scored a perfect 5/5, edged out perennial champions Curtin Primary from the ACT. The ASC, which is the culmination of a gruelling series of elimination events, is often a bellwether for the health of junior chess around the country. In 2009 it seemed that, while the strength of east coast chess is thriving, states such as SA, WA

and Tasmania are struggling to keep pace. This week’s game, from the Secondary Open division, sees North Sydney’s Kevin Tan find a spectacular winning idea against Scotch’s number one Zhigen Lin, only for Tan to falter when victory – and a giant upset – was within reach. Mebourne 2009 White: K Tan Black: Z Lin Opening: French Defence 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Bg5 dxe4 5.Nxe4 Be7 6.Bxf6 Bxf6 Solid but passive; 6...gxf6!? is more ambitious. 7.c3 0-0 8.Bd3 Nd7 9.Nf3 b6 10.0-0 Bb7 11.Re1 Be7 12.Qc2 c5!? 13.dxc5 bxc5 14.Rad1 Qc7 15.Neg5! h6? Allowing a stunning combination. 15...g6 looks risky, but after 16.Bxg6!? hxg6 17.Nxe6 Qc6! Black is still well in the game. 16.Bh7+! Kh8 17.Rxd7!! Qxd7 (See diagram) 18.Nxf7+? Right idea, wrong move order. After 18.Ne5! Black would be helpless, e.g. 18...Qe8 19.Ngxf7+! Rxf7 20.Ng6+! Kxh7 21.Nf8+! Kg8

CAPRICORN: Why burden yourself with festive stress so it all becomes a joyless chore – go frolic instead under late week Capricorn moon. You’ve got fantastic money stars right now, but luck–bringing Jupiter won’t filleth your cup till you ditch some wishful thinking or a wornout dream. AQUARIUS: This week needs you turning power clashes into cooperative ventures. Big ask? Not for Aquarian inventiveness – besides, surrendering to someone else’s way of doing things is sometimes surprisingly pleasant, often less stressful and always less effort. PISCES: An esteem-boosting week for fish folk, with the planetary emphasis in your success sector suggesting you get busy mixing, mingling, cruising, schmoozing and promoting what you have to offer. There could even be the odd delightful surprise, with something turning unexpectedly in your favour. 22.Qh7+ Kxf8 23.Qh8 checkmate! 18...Rxf7 19.Ne5 Bf6! Black’s get-out clause. White nets a queen but Black’s position remains hard to break down. 20.Nxd7 Rxd7 21.Be4 Bd5! 22.c4? Creating a serious weakness. After 22.Bxd5 exd5 Black retains some trumps but White should have an edge. 22...Bxe4 23.Qxe4 Rad8 24.b3 Rd2 25.Qxe6 Bd4! This is why the c pawn was needed on c3. 26.Re2? 26.Rf1 was necessary, though Lin misses the first opportunity to punish White. 26...Rd1+ 27.Re1 Rd2?! 28.Re2? Played accompanied by a draw offer, which motivated Black to find... 28...Rd1+ 29.Re1 Bc3! 30.Qe8+ Rxe8 31.Rxd1 Re1+ 32.Rxe1 Bxe1 and White resigned a few moves later... 0-1 a

Now is the time

Niggling pain? If you have a niggling pain, then don’t delay – get it seen to today. Delay in dental work can prove costly, both to your wallet and your health and many things caught early enough, can prevent a major problem later on. The state of your mouth, teeth and gums are a reflection of what’s going on within the body. Dr Jon takes a holistic approach to dental health and wellbeing. Holistic means to take into account the whole body in the context of healing – each tooth corresponds to a different system, organ or meridian within the body and with this approach balance can be restored to the whole body and being. If you have amalgam fillings, there is much research to support their toxicity in the body, it may be time to look at replacing them. We have safe removal and replacement procedures, all using biocompatible materials. A professional clean can refresh the mouth and gums, and a check up can let you know what’s going on before it Byron Den t becomes a major problem.

WELCOME TO OUR NEW TV GUIDE. Spread out over three pages, it makes it easier for you to see whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on offer from the ever-growing list of channels. 1. London cops a battering in Flood (Prime, Friday, 8.30pm). Very few options for Planned Retreat here but if you were at the top of the ferris wheel, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d hope it stopped spinning. 2. Chill out with Spectacled Bears (ABC1, Saturday, 7.30pm). And the advantages to being human are what? 3. Navy Seal Bruce Willis saves yet more people in Tears Of The Sun (NBN, Sunday, 8.30pm). Fairly standard military/ industrial complex action thriller, but Bruce always emotes a good line in rock-jawed anxiety.

(Emma Stone) and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin). Columbus, our narrator, is a gormless youth with irritable bowel syndrome and a list of rules that must be adhered to in order to stay alive. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not unlike the kid who put Juno up the duff, whereas Tallahassee is a good olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; boy version of Crocodile Dundee. He harbours a hatred of zombies, whose skulls he pulps with popeyed zeal, and an all-consuming passion for Twinkie cakes, the last of which he obsessively seeks before they pass their use-by date. Wichita and Little Rock are a couple of gals scamming their way across the country. Upon arrival in LA, the gang lobs at the mansion of Bill Murray (playing himself â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Wichita wanted to go to Russell Croweâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s) for an hilarious interlude. Tallahassee, Murrayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s primo fan, is gobsmacked when Little Rock doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who he is. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like not knowing who Gandhi is.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gandhi?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she asks.

too close to Wall-E for comfort. Plenty of allusions are made to other films (to keep us oldies on our toes?), including Star Wars, 2001: A Space Odyssey (a classic you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to have seen to pick the reference to), Terminator, Grease and, most unexpectedly, Gene Kellyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exuberant Singinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; In The Rain. Design and animation are seductive â&#x20AC;&#x201C; gleaming pastel-coloured Cadillacs cruise quietly around the streets on cushions of air â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the pace, if not breakneck, is jaunty and its moral questions straightforward. But other than the opening premise, there is nothing startlingly original or clever about it, not that cutting edge should be deemed an essential ingredient in the making of a cartoon. It is, however, wholesome in its message of inclusiveness and not in the least patronizing towards the intelligence of its target audience. ~ John Campbell

40 December 15, 2009 The Byron Shire Echo

A slight oversight in last week’s Snippets meant that two local restaurants which had recently gained star-status in the 2010 Queensland Food and Wine Guide were omitted. Byron Bay-based both of them, dish and the Beach Hotel’s Pacific Dining Room joined Satiate and the Restaurant at The Byron at Byron in being awarded for general excellence.

Organically hot In the annual ‘What’s Hot’ survey of over 1800 professional chefs of the American Culinary Federation (ACF) just released, organic produce has been tipped as one of the ‘hottest’ fine dining trends for 2010. Organic coffee was voted the second hottest non-alcoholic beverage and organic beer, wine and spirits were also tipped to be the top alcohol trends of the coming year. It’s a situation mirrored in Australia, with organic culinary creations now a common feature of the country’s most acclaimed and award-winning restaurant menus. Demand for certified organic produce from some of the country’s most highly awarded chefs has driven this trend, and confirms its superior quality over conventionally produced food. One proponent is Brisbane chef Kym Machin whose newly refurbished restaurant Urbane recently launched its much-anticipated opening. His brand new menu is studded with the best of Australian Certified Organic produce.

Chocolate implosion While you’re in Brisbane trying out the new-look Urbane, consider saving space for dessert and heading to the Stamford Plaza. Currently available is the Chocolate Implosion, creation of Adelaide Stamford Grand executive chef Paul Brown. It consists of a generous scoop of Valrhona chocolate mousse, lashings of chocolate sauce, a hard chocolate sphere, a petite pear and it’s all topped off with a sheet of gold leaf. Paul honed his sweet skills as Senior Executive Chef in the employ of the King of Bahrain and describes the Chocolate Implosion as ‘the result of years of experimentation… I think it is the best dessert I have ever made.’

For over 15 years Billi’s Thai has recreated the traditional taste of Thailand in Billinudgel. Offering an extensive menu, scrumptious desserts, specials board, and western style kids menu. The whole family will enjoy the relaxed village atmosphere from the covered verandah or inside dining area. Be part of the best-kept secret in the shire!

BYRON BAY

It was through her photography, initially, that Katrina Watts became involved in sumo wrestling; the biscuits came later. There she was in Japan teaching English with photography her hobby. She found herself becoming intrigued by televised matches of sumo wrestling so started going along to the live ones and taking photos of the participants. Not, she points out to me, the ones at the top of their game but the ones much further down, who weren’t on the whole noticed, much less photographed. So delighted were they with the results that she became more and more involved with them and with the sport in general. She became their commentator and would go to their ‘stables’ to watch them train. As it was customary to take a gift – and the typical ones like a side of salmon or a case of beer or a bottle of aged whiskey were rather beyond her means – she would take along her home-made biscuits and slices. ‘I was popular, yes’, she tells me, ‘there were the photos and the food!’ Katrina had grown up in a family that loved cooking and food. Her mother was a superb cook and her Cambridge-educated father had at one stage done a course in Cordon Bleu cookery. She had gone to Japan for two years and the two years turned into twenty five, twenty of which saw her involved in the world of the sumo wrestlers. ‘They were my extended family,’ she tells me. ‘It’s lonely for the wrestlers in the stables... and I felt appreciated [making the biscuits and slices for them].’ One time she made twenty different types of biscuits for twenty wrestlers. Obtaining the correct ingredients in Kobe, Osaka, proved to be challenging at times – ‘even Japanese sugar has a different quality in terms of the fineness of its grain’ – and yet there were sufficient foreign grocers who would be able to supply her with ingredients like Lyle’s Golden Syrup for her Anzac Biscuits. Through her involvement in both professional and amateur sumo wrestling she travelled the

world, acting as both assistant and interpreter – Paris, London, Vienna, Hong Kong, Brazil, Estonia; in Canada she was stadium commentator. It made her feel ‘useful’. Three years ago she returned to Australia, heading to Murwillumbah where her aged mother, who had grown up in the Tweed, was now based. I ask if it was a shock to come back – and Katrina hastens to assure me that it was definitely not. ‘It’s so beautiful in Murwillumbah,’ she tells me, ‘especially coming from that heavily urban environment. Here it’s a joy to go into town... there’s always something flowering.’ In fact it was too quiet for her when she first returned. ‘I had trouble sleeping – the crickets and the frogs were so – not intrusive, just so noticeable!’ She unearthed her ancient collection of the ‘Time Life’ cooking series and ‘SuperCook’ magazines and started cooking again all her own favourites. Then she decided to have a shot at the Murwillumbah Show – and just recently learned that she had won six first prizes, one second and one third for her biscuits, cakes and preserves. In fact she won the big one, the Supreme Champion Reserve prize for her Lemon Butter. (‘The lemons were on the tree that morning and the chooks had just laid the eggs.’) One of the judges said ‘I didn’t have a taste of it, I had a scoop!’ Her recipes come from relatives and friends; via the internet; courtesy of ‘someone I met on the plane coming back from Hawaii’; very old cookbooks. She plans to enter the Show again next year but with completely different things. And as for the sumo wrestling, this beautifully spoken, multilingual, widely travelled and gently humorous woman is President of the Australian Sumo Federation, so still very firmly involved. She leaves me with squares of her Lemon Slice: I bite in with bliss, tangy lemon oozing thickly from its buttery base.

Taylors Eighty Acres wines, from the Clare Valley in South Australia, was requested for an official function at Copenhagen’s environmental forum, to be hosted by Louise Hand, Australia’s Ambassador for Climate Change.The Ambassador is the lead Australian negotiator within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the head of the International Division of the Department of Climate Change. Taylors Wines third generation chief executive officer Mitchell Taylor said he was delighted. ‘We’re thrilled to supply our wines to such an important group of environmental leaders during the biggest environmental conference the world has ever seen,’ he said. ‘Climate change will affect the global wine industry greatly and our family business treats this issue very seriously. We hope our contribution is just one of many for the sustainability of our environment.’ Taylors Eighty Acres range was released in Australia during September and claims 100% carbon neutrality. Its total carbon footprint is based on a full Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) model compliant to ISO14044. Taylors says it offsets all emissions associated with the range from budburst in the vineyard to the disposal of the empty bottle. The Eighty Acres range is bottled in the O-I Lean + Green lightweight bottles, which are almost 40% lighter than traditional bottles.

Foster’s joins major food brands in committing to be GM-free Four major Australian food brands have committed to avoiding Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs) in their products. Foster’s, Nestlé, Schweppes and Lindt have undertaken to keep their Australian brands free from genetically engineered ingredients, joining other Australian brands that include VB, Milo, Uncle Toby’s cereal and Peters Ice Cream. The 2010 Truefood Guide released by Greenpeace, which rates over one thousand of Australia’s top food and beverage brands for the presence of genetically engineered ingredients, revealed the news. The Biological Farmers of Australia organisation says this is a significant win for consumers seeking no GMOs.

“(But) despite this latest win, GMOs are increasingly finding their way into many common foods,” it stated in media release. “Equally disturbing is the fact that due to loose labelling laws in Australia, most foods aren’t required to declare that ingredients are genetically modified on labelling, and consumers end up unwittingly consuming GMOs.” The organisation advised people wanting to avoid genetically modified food to acquire the Greenpeace Truefood pocket guide (www.truefood.org.au), or to look for organic certification logos on food labelling, such as the Australian Certified Organic ‘Bud’ logo.

Injury prevention research grants open

Local DJs beating up boxing

Putting a different beat into boxing, Boxation trainer Peter Gauge with boxing soundtrack composers DJ Peter Mills and DJ Taya. Photo Tree Faerie.

Boxation is a unique form of fitness training combining the dynamics of boxing training, which has no contact, with circuit training relaxation and meditation. Boxation blends the sport of boxing with music to produce a rhythmic almost dance-like form of the art. The talents of several local DJs have been enlisted by Peter to provide the soundtrack for the classes.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The idea behind Boxation was to come up with a physical activity to help counteract the growing number of people, especially youth, with ADHD, depression, anxiety, and both the victims and aggressors in bullying,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says facilitator and boxing trainer Pete Gauge. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If people feel good about themselves, then they have no reason to pull anyone else down.â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;With Boxation they get the chance

to own the negativity and get it out.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Some of the local DJs involved with the project are Taya, Petrescue, Tiffon, Reform and Short Circuit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they will be kicking off the first sessions and have been invited to compile their latest mixes. Over the past year, classes have been running at the Mullumbimby Stiener school, Mullumbimby high school and

Byron Bay public school and Pete will be running the classes again soon. The sessions are held at the YAK and Byron public school on Mondays and Wednesdays and at the Drill Hall in Mullumbimby on Tuesday and Thursday. There are sessions available for both youth and adults groups. For more information about class times contact Perer Gauge on 0421 920 616.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Targeting Tinniesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; campaign for summer Small runabouts were the target of safety checks across the Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waterways recently as NSW Maritime began the first in a series of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Targeting Tinniesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; safety campaigns Ports and Waterways Minister Paul McLeay said the campaign will involve a coordinated education campaign coupled with water safety checks aimed at runabouts which are the most popular type of boat in NSW. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There are more than 224,000 registered boats in NSW and some 50 per cent are tinnies and runabouts,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr McLeay said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This type of boat is also the most common vessel involved in serious and fatal boating incidents.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; NSW Maritime figures show that since July 1 this year, eight lives have been lost in boating incidents in NSW and five involved a tinnie or runabout. Mr McLeay said it is important the skipper of every tinnie understands the limits of their craft and regularly checks weather conditions. Basic rules provided by NSW Maritime include: www.echo.net.au

Any person travelling at 10 knots or more must hold a current boat licence; All skippers must comply with safety equipment requirements, especially display correct navigation lights when operating at night; wear killswitch lanyards when boating alone; and encourage people to wear lifejackets particularly

when boating alone, at night, in times of heightened risk, if elderly, young or are poor swimmers. Mr McLeay also stressed the need for skippers to ensure their vessels are seaworthy and suitable for the conditions. Checking the weather is also a fundamental precaution prior to and during any boating

The New South Wales Government established the Sports Research and Injury Prevention Scheme in 1991 to provide funding to support organisations and research institutions in their efforts to increase safer participation in sport and recreational activities. The NSW Sporting Injuries Committee manages the Scheme and is unique in providing support to research injury prevention measures and practices. Last week the Minister for Finance Michael Daley, announced that applications are now open for the 2010 Sports Research and Injury Prevention Scheme Grants. Mr Daley said the NSW Sporting Injuries Committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual research grants program targets research projects that support safe sport participation and contribute to a reduction in the incidence or severity of serious sporting injuries. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The 2010 grants program will provide a total of $100,000 in funding for research projects that are conducted in partnership with a sporting organisation that operates in New South Wales,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Mr Daley. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is a great opportunity for sporting organisations to partner with prominent researchers to develop ways to reduce injuries and improve safety in sport. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Since the Scheme began 18 years ago, more than $1.6 million in grants has been awarded to leading medical

researchers and sporting organisations across the state,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Daley said. Research grants have been awarded for projects that have included: t BOBMZTJOH UIF DIBSBDUFSJTtics of head injuries in snow sports t EFWFMPQNFOU PG B GSBNFwork for best-practice Sports Safety Policies t EFUFSNJOJOH UIF OBUJPOBM incidence and cost of anterior cruciate ligament ruptures t BOBMZTJOH UIF JNQBDU PG stretching on reducing injuries and muscle soreness t EFWFMPQNFOU PG UIF TUBUF wide SmartPlay injury prevention program Mr Daley said that grant recipients have included eminent researchers in applied sports medicine as well as sporting organisations. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Safety in sport is a key issue for all of our schools, community clubs and professional sporting organisations,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Fostering partnerships between researchers and sporting organisations and clubs will help deliver real improvements in sports injury prevention across our community.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The NSW Sporting Injuries Committee is a not-for-profit statutory organisation that encourages sports safety initiatives. Applications close on March 1 2010 with application forms and guidelines available from www.sportinginjuries.nsw.gov. au or call 02 4321 5392.

for all the phone calls from people who read my advert in The Echo. You made us feel so much happier that she was out visiting you as opposed to being roadkill. Thank you for ďŹ nding her, from Mark, Cris, Ruby (and Pussy) JENNY & MUNGO thank everybody concerned when Rajah swallowed the ďŹ sh hooks on Sunday the 6th on New Brighton Beach. The 1st hook passed through successfully the next day but the 2nd 7cm hook necessitated a 2nd trip to the vet & a knockout injection but all is well now. Fisherman please remove your rubbish!

Kicking goals in real estate

ricks and mortar are very important to Kevin Campion and a career in the NRL allowed him to fulfill one of his dreams. ‘I wanted to own my own home by the time I retired,’ says Kevin. ‘That was always the plan for me and I succeeded. To me successful sporting career is gauged not by how much you earn, but how much you save.’ Knowing that professional sport would not last a lifetime, Kevin put a lot of energy into his future. ‘I have work hard to achieve my goals. I’ve always been a hard worker. My job was rugby league and I knew that one day that job would end. ‘I was lucky I suppose that I started my football career before it all went professional. In those days you played on the weekend and had a job during the week so you learned to look after yourself a bit. I don’t think the young players today realise how hard it was. ‘I did business studies while I was playing football. You have to do something. So many players think that having played in the NRL will open doors. It does open doors but if you aren’t qualified, those doors will close again.’ Kevin hung up his professional boots five years ago and what was once a hobby turned into the next career for this 241 game veteran. ‘For me real estate started as

a hobby. My wife Kylie and I would buy a house and while we were living in it, we would do it up then sell it.’ Having had his real estate licence for a couple of years, Kevin recently went into partnership with Christine McInnes and they joined the Ray White family a few months ago. ‘Ray White is the most recognised brand in Australia and there wasn’t one in Pottsville and I was lucky to join forces with Chris who lives in Pottsville and is well respected in the industry.’ Kevin sees many similarities between his former and current career. ‘As a sports person I had work discipline, I set goals and I worked hard to achieve them. We have the same culture of discipline in the office.’ A 12 career year is quite a long one in league and Kevin says that after his NRL career finished, it took a while to adjust the

‘real world’. He says that where everything before was structured and planned for him, he has now become the planner. Financially there were contracts in place to ensure a steady salary where as now he has a fluctuating income. Having moved to the Gold Coast in 1992, the Campions - Kevin with wife Kylie and children Austin, Max and Isla, now live at Palm Beach, but he can envisage a future living in the Pottsville area. ‘My kids have been to a few different schools so I think we will stay where we are for the present to keep them settled, but Pottsville is definitely a possible future destination - it’s comfortable here. The people are fantastic and there is a feeling that you are really welcome. ‘Pottsville is growing but it hasn’t changed. It still has that country feel and

it’s only about an hour and 20 minutes to Brisbane. The Tweed Council has named Pottsville as one of the hubs of the shire. ‘The whole area is great and footballers love it! Darren Lockyer lives in Pottsville, Scott Sattler is at Koala Beach and Gary Belcher is at Salt. We are all Queenslanders and we all moved south,’ he laughs. Campion still keeps his hand in doing some coaching at Seagulls and with the under 11s at Tugun but he is glad he had a plan in place after retirement from the league. ‘I have met and played with some of the best players in the world. My best advice for the young players is: football is not forever. Make sure that while you are playing, you are setting yourself up for when you retire because it could come quicker than you think.’

Backlash The Ian Cohen benefit this Saturday night is titled â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Return to the Scene of the Crimeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a reference to the benefit concert in Suffolk Park Hall, 2001, where Ian made a two minute speech which eventually cost him $1 million in legal fees. If you want to help out, the gig is on at Suffolk Park Hall at 7.30pm and costs only $10. Try not to defame anyone loudly while youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re there â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there might be secret operatives in the crowd, armed with listening devices. â&#x2013;  â&#x2013;  â&#x2013;  â&#x2013; 

Mandy Nolan looks at the Schoolies visit in her usual quirky manner in Soapbox this week. The issues surrounding their behaviour are serious, however. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not so much theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve disrupted our lives â&#x20AC;&#x201C; most of them have been good visitors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but many have disrupted their own lives and ended up in hospital casualty as victims of drink spiking, assault, alcohol poisoning, and unpleasant symptoms genital diseases. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a great way to start your adult life â&#x20AC;&#x201C; perhaps the Australian notion of celebration needs a rethink.
