Local women want breast screening van back Story & photo Victoria Cosford

A rally to to call for the reinstatement of mobile breast screen vans in the area was held last week by the Byron Bay Breast Cancer Group outside the Byron Community and Cultural Centre, attracting considerable interest as well as the presence of Mayor Jan Barham. ‘As many signatures as possible are needed on the petitions to get the vans back in our town’, facilitator Barb Pinter told The Echo. Over 12 months ago the vans were ‘arbitrarily taken away, with no community consultation’, she said. ‘The issue for us is that the numbers of people being diagnosed are going up, according to Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) figures. Every day in Australia 38 women are diagnosed. It’s projected in 2010 that there will be 14,000 new diagnoses made and in 2013 15,409. With those rates going up we need these services improved, not stripped away!’ Three vans used to service 32 towns and now one van services eight. ‘The other thing is that we know early detection not only saves lives but also reduces the amount of treatment required. On a mammogram a tumour the size of a grain of rice can be detected.’ Barb knows personally the value of

In September 2002, a 16-year-old boy was rushed by ambulance to Lismore Base Hospital where doctors discovered he had meningococcal septicaemia. By October the same year, Marty Mayberry’s legs had been amputated below the knee and he was recovering from the disease described in medical circles as ‘well at breakfast – dead by dinner’. At the time, Echo journalist Carol Page said, ‘Don’t be surprised to see him lining up at the next Winter Paralympics.’ She was right. A keen skier before his illness, Marty’s recovery led him beyond the restoration of mobility and with a characteristic tenacity, Marty returned to a sport he had always loved. After he began competitive skiing in 2004, he first represented Australia in 2005 and in 2006, Marty Mayberry made a dream come true when he qualified for the Torino Winter Paralympic Games. Since then, Marty’s life has continued to amaze those around him. In less than two weeks, Marty will again strap on the skis for Australia when he competes in the 2010 Paralympic Winter

Games in Vancouver, Canada. Marty’s parents will travel to the Canadian snow fields at Whistler to watch with the rest of the world as international Paralympic athletes accomplish extraordinary victories. ‘I love to watch him race,’ says Marty’s father Paul who, along with wife Gail, has seen Marty has go from strength to strength, firstly in recovery and then becoming an elite athlete. ‘This is an experience of great pleasure after great trauma. He has a wonderful life. He came so close to dying, so we are so glad that he is here with us.’ Marty has had great success in the sport with international results including a 2007 World Cup gold in slalom and a 2008 World Cup bronze. This week he is competing in the pre-Paralympic World Cup in Aspen and is skiing and training at a high level. His ski and leg setup, which is quite difficult to get correct for the different snow conditions, is working well. Marty will ski in the slalom, giant slalom and ‘super G’ (super giant slalom) and he is hoping to get a place in the downhill, an event in which he is starting to blitz the competition. As well as his career as an elite ath-

early detection. ‘Taking the vans away is a retrograde step for the women in the community and their families. The two major factors in getting people to be screened are access to and awareness of the service. Those vans acted as a good visual reminder to people.’ Group member Ann McCabe, for whom the presence of the van near the preschool where she worked used to be a familiar sight, told The Echo that ‘apart from all the statistical stuff, it’s so convenient to have it in your area – you can go in your lunch hour!’ The service now operates only in Lismore and Tweed Heads – ‘an hour’s drive each way’, noted Barb. ‘Often people don’t have access to a motor vehicle. There are no trains, and only one afternoon bus to Lismore. ‘What we’d like to know is how many people from the local area were screened when the vans were here and how many are being screened at Tweed and Lismore now, as well as how many people were actually diagnosed at the vans before they were taken away.’ These are just some of the questions that, along with the petition, will be put by the Support Group to the Minister for Health. ‘On a positive note’, said Barb, ‘the rates of survival are going up – and it can be put down to early screening and early detection.’

lete, Marty has other great visions for his future. Living by Ghandi’s words – ‘be the change you want to see in the world’ – he recently completed a health science degree and earlier this month began a medical degree, completing one week of the course before he went back to the US and Canada for training. ‘If Marty skis well and finishes the races he should be in the top ten, possibly as good as fifth,’ says Paul. ‘If he wins a medal that would be great, but however it goes will be fine. ‘If he is happy with how he skis that would be a great outcome. He came sixth in downhill and Super G at the World Championships last year and has previously won a world cup slalom race, so he is in there with a chance and I know he will do his best. ‘He has been training for six years which is an extraordinary commitment. What I find remarkable about Marty is how normal his life is and how he lives his life and how focussed he became after becoming disabled to achieve what he chose to aim for.’ The 10th Winter Paralympic Games run from March 12 to 21.

Mentors encourage positive values Story & photo Eve Jeffery

Three local men are working with students at Mullumbimby High School to create positive, healthy relationships among the student body. In a program devised by Aboriginal historian and former Mullum High teacher Steve Strong, boys from the school will get the chance to participate in some male orientated activities, such as spear making, while learning from some older wiser men. Participants include a combined year seven and ten group and another group each for years eight and nine. ‘The Indigenous Mentoring Program is an attempt to provide positive male role models,’ said Mr Strong. ‘The aim is to counter the rise in bullying and other forms of intimidation throughout the state. We envisage this pilot program lasting 19 weeks, to be run over terms one and two.’ Steve says the aim of the project is to provide a presence of respected Aboriginal male role models in the school, which contains an extremely high percentage of single parent families. He hopes to cultivate an appreciation of Aboriginal culture and present positive examples of an Aboriginal warrior mentality where compassion and caring precedes all. To this end he has enlisted the help of two local Aborigi-

Scott is looking forward to positive outcomes from the program.

He says the program, which runs for two hours a week, is open to all boys with a genuine interest. ‘We did go through a selection process for this program. We want to find kids who will really benefit. Any kid who can gain something from this project is welcome.’

Man charged with murder of local businessman A 38 year old man from Lennox Head, Kevin Malcolm Purtill, has been charged with the murder of Byron Bay businessman John ‘Jack’ Garda. Mr Garda, who lived at Federal and owned and operated two businesses in Byron Bay, was reported missing to Byron Bay Police on February 10. He

was last seen at Lennox Head on Monday February 8. Strike Force Whip was established to investigate Mr Garda’s disappearance. The operation included detectives from State Crime Command’s Homicide Squad and Tweed/Byron Local Area Command. Following inquiries, Purtill

Moves to save MISA The Mental Illness and Substance Abuse (MISA) Lifestyle Support Program has been providing vital support to people experiencing mental illness and alcohol and drug use issues on the north coast for the past five years. MISA’s funding will come to an end in June 2010 and there is currently no future funding available to ensure the continuation of this vital service in our community. A peaceful demonstration will be held outside federal MP Justine Elliot’s office to demand that the funding for this essential service be continued. Concerned members of the public are urged to show their support at 10.30am on Thursday March 4 at 107-111 Minjunbal Drive, Tweed Heads South. ‘The urgent need for this service is reflected in the increasing incidence of mental health problems in our community,’ say its supporters.

‘Recent research further suggests that the majority of people who experience mental illness also struggle with substance use issues. ‘There is no other service on the north coast which provides this essential and unique support to people struggling with both mental health and drug and alcohol issues.’ MISA supports individuals and their carers living in the community and offers a number of group programs promoting mental and physical health. MISA is an outreach program hosted by The Buttery Incorporated and funded by The Australian Government Attorney General’s Department under the Proceeds of Crime Act. MISA runs programs in various localities on the far north coast and covers the area bordered approximately by Tweed Heads, Ballina and Lismore.

Teaching East Timorese to swim Victoria Cosford

Local woman Meg Fisk has been teaching Byron Shire children to swim for the last eight years via her Water Babies program â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and now plans to take it to East Timor. In liaison during that period with First Lady Kirsty Sword Gusmao, she is now preparing to head over there to launch Learn To Swim. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an ongoing, sustainable venture where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll first be teaching the children then going back to teach the adults â&#x20AC;&#x201C; eventually the people of the country will run it themselvesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, Meg told The Echo. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I met Kirsty when she came to Byron Bay and was promoting her book at the Writersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Festival. As part of my Arts degree in writing and the media I had studied East Timor and wondered what I could do there to make a difference, rather than just be a tourist. And so I thought of teaching swimming...â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Unlike in Australia where â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;we just take it for grantedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, children in East Timor are not afforded the opportunity to learn to swim. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Swimming is very visualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, Meg said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;which is important considering language problems! â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You can teach with your hands, your face, your body. I believe that within two weeks you can set up some safety and survival skills. It will be an intense program with lessons in the morning and in the afternoon â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but this is just the start of a bigger picture. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be building relationships with the government and with the people Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be working with. Eventually I would like to get it into the public school system and for it to be a model or a template for non-Englishspeaking children elsewhere. I would also like to create a re-

On Thursday February 25, local women gathered inside the A&I Hall Bangalow to celebrate the best parts of being a country woman. Cooking, crafts, cups of tea and cupcakes. The CWA cupcake challenge was won by Michelle Dawson, who laboured lengthily the night before making rose cupcakes. Her prize was a handembroidered tea towel.

There were many entrants in the cupcake challenge, including children. The children won knitted finger puppets. A beautiful exhibition of crafts could be viewed inside the A&I Hall throughout the day. It was an enjoyable day to congregate with ladies while the rain poured outside. – story & photo Margie Baldwin

Council approves 52 unit development at Suffolk Byron Shire Councillors voted 7-2 last week, Crs Staples and Morrisey opposed, to approve a 52 unit development on Broken Head Road at Suffolk Park. The development will have 13 residential flat buildings each containing four two-bedroom units on a 3.3ha site. Mayor Jan Barham’s motion to approve the development added further conditions of consent to the staff ’s recommendation of approval. They include a prohibition on holiday letting without Council approval and provision for underfloor water flow to minimise flooding concerns. Supporting Cr Barham’s motion, Cr Simon Richardson said he had ‘no problems with the size, density and landscaping’. He did however criticise the proposal’s design qualities, say-

ing the developers had missed the opportunity ‘to do something great’. The need for the units to have aircon and clothes dryers made them ‘architectural dinosaurs’. Earlier during public access, residents had called for the application to be deferred so Council could look further at NSW government coastal guidelines. Resident Bernie Petry said the traffic management plan was inadequate and that the scale would ‘exacerbate environmental concerns’. Speaking for the development, Steve Agnew said there was ‘a serious need’ for housing and that landscaping would ‘minimise the impact to the public’. Mr Agnew claimed a state-

ment on contamination in the staff report was ‘grossly incorrect’ and contradicted by another statement in the report which said the land was not contaminated. He said the developers were ‘one hundred per cent sure we’ve got the right figures on flooding – there is no impact.’ There was also some talk of Council acquiring part of the land for public open space but that is still to be discussed between Council and the developer. According to the staff report, 38 public submissions were re-

ceived, ‘mostly opposed. These raised concerns in regard to flood impacts, ecological impacts, visual impact, excessive dwelling density and inconsistency with local character. ‘The site is traversed by the Tallow Creek watercourse, contains flood prone land and bush fire prone land and high conservation value land that includes Endangered Ecological Communities remnants. ‘The proposed built development is not located in the vegetated northern part of the site nor the part of the site on the eastern side of Tallow Creek.’

This Thursday March 4 Kevin James and Mel Dobra will be holding a fundraiser for the Yayasan Widya Guna Orphanage in Ubud, Bali, at Prestons Lane, Tyagarah. Kevin and Mel visited the orphanage last year when they went over to play at the Bali Spirit Festival. They are heading over again this year, and are hoping to raise enough funds to pay for education for children with special needs. ‘We visited the orphanage last year quite a few times, holding singing groups with about 60 of the children,’ says

Mel. ‘The children loved the singing so much, and we made such special connections with them. ‘The orphanage is run by Ketut and his wife, who have taken on the role of supporting all these children. The moment you step into the orphanage you can tell that these children are cared for with love. ‘Ketut informed us that it is the children with special needs that are not getting enough funds for their care and education. The Balinese volunteers from the community are doing their best to support these children,

but more help is still needed. ‘Visiting the children with special needs was one of the most moving experiences of our lives.

Quota members share the values of serving and encouraging others, developing friendships, and promoting international understanding. With a motto of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;we share,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Quotarians are known especially for their service to the deaf, hard-of-hearing, and speech-impaired individuals and disadvantaged women and children. The Brunswick Valley chapter of Quota International is

helping to keep the motto alive. Last week the local club donated a Redcat amplification unit to St Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Primary School. The Redcat is a single speaker, portable system that can fill a classroom with clear, even sound so that every child hears every word, strengthening the teacher and student connection. The teacher or other speaker wears a small microphone around the neck and speaks in their usual voice without straining or shouting. The sys-

tem delivers high intelligibility of the teacherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice and fullrange sound for movies and music. As the system is portable, it will be used in all areas of the school including the classroom and for larger event such as assemblies in the hall. This is the sixth Redcat that the Brunswick Valley Quota has donated to local schools and the Quota ladies were delighted to be able to present such a valuable learning tool to St Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.

Electricity on way up

Govt solar plans muddled

According to CEO of GoSwitch. com.au, Ben Freund, electricity prices are going to continue to rise. ‘This is only the beginning’, he told The Echo, ominously. GoSwitch.com.au is, he explained, ‘the biggest price comparison service for gas and electricity in Australia. We probably account for 90% of price comparison activity.’ Operating for two years, it is a website constituting a system of databases and mathematical formulae whereby consumers are able to access information on how much they are spending and how much they can save. Ben, in Byron Bay for the week, said that ‘it’s immensely popular – tens of thousands there has been a 21 per cent ‘When you see the price of an use this service every month.’ increase in the cost of electric- essential service increase this Since January 1 this year, ity and it may continue to rise. quickly it’s a serious problem,’ said Ben, ‘especially for people like retirees, those on a pension or fixed incomes. People often don’t know that there are options – our research shows that 90 per cent of people in the country are paying more for electricity than they need to.’ NSW is going through ‘tumultuous changes regarding electricity’, Ben continued. ‘The three big companies will no longer be governmentowned as NSW is entering a whole new world of deregulation, competition and privatisation. ‘The responsibility will be shifted to the individual. It’s one of the reasons why prices are going up. The electricity companies will look after themselves and then it’s up to you as the individual to look after your own interests. ‘There are huge unstoppable The Poinciana is open seven days a week from 8:00am. forces pushing up the price of Breakfast is served all day on weekends & until 1:00pm electricity – we believe that weekdays.

A local solar hot water specialist is greatly concerned about the federal government’s recent decision to fuse both ceiling insulation and solar hot water rebates into ‘one pool of available rebates’. Che Jones, managing director of Install Hot Water at the Byron Arts & Industry Park, has written to Member for Richmond Justine Elliot, with copies to Peter Garrett MP, Bob Brown MLC, Dr John Kaye MLC and the Labor Party, to express this concern. In the letter he argues that, ‘unlike the failed insulation program, which was often carried out by unqualified people, the solar hot water industry is heavily regulated...’ He had been informed via a media release from Peter Garrett’s office on February 19 that a new household Renewable Energy Bonus Scheme had been established ‘to replace the Home Insulation Program and the Solar Hot Water Rebate’ and under this scheme households ‘will be able to receive a rebate for the installation of ceiling insulation or a solar hot water system or a heat pump’. ‘It shouldn’t be an either/or situation’, Che told The Echo. ‘The government should realise that the benefits of solar and insulation should be kept separate and this is what we are trying to achieve in our letter. It feels like a kneejerk reaction in

the wrong direction.’ Che said that his fledgling business of only three years has already suffered, with many of his clients cancelling their orders. ‘Both products [ceiling insulation and solar hot water] differ so much and we feel we have been penalised due to the debacle of lives lost and fires started through poor ceiling insulation companies... which has nothing to do with solar hot water.’ ‘It’s [the rebate drop] seri-

ously taking the affordability of going solar down’, he told The Echo. ‘People will now say it’s too much and that they’ll stick with electric hot water. From our perspective I think that we’re being penalised for their debacle with the rushed release of the insulation program. The point I wish to get across is that the solar heating rebate was and still is a good thing.’ Che was still waiting for a response to his letter at the time he spoke with The Echo.

Boys on film at Byron Bay festival The trials young boys have to deal with are part of the focus at the Byron Bay International Film Festival. The festival is screening a number of short films the themes of which range from ‘bullying’ to ‘belonging’ to ‘being yourself ’. Thought provoking and entertaining, these films offer realistic insights and poignant messages. The film The Bully is one boy’s narration of his nightmare journey as the singular target of the schoolyard bully. When none of the school au-

thorities intervene, he turns to a dysfunctional father for advice. Acting on this, a situation of ‘like creates like’ evolves. In Ronan’s Escape the potential long-term effects of bullying reveal how it is capable of attacking people at their very core, destroying all self-esteem. In Call Me Son an orphaned Irish boy has had more parents than hot lunches as he struggles to find a sense of his own self and self worth within the foster care system. Then there are kids who do have parents, but rarely see

them. Clearing the Air gives insights to one stilted relationship between an estranged father and his 20-something son when they meet after many years of separation. There are numerous other short films screening within the nine-day festival program that expose the challenges related to growing up and coping. Many of these films have been made by young Australian filmmakers. Check www.bbff.com.au for film and session details and see pages 32-33.

lute scum of the earth, the vilest form of people on the planet, traders in human misery who should rot in hell â&#x20AC;&#x201C; yes, people smugglers. In a spectacular piece of political sleight of hand, Rudd has conflated the threat to national security posed by organisations such as Al Qaeda and Jemaah Islamiyah with the challenge to border security posed by asylum seekers in boats. Yes, really; our top counterintelligence agency, ASIO, is

ASIO budget will be increased, as it has been every year since the organisationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s formation in 1945. The political aim is to show, yet again, that Labor can be just as tough on border security as the coalition, and to take the heat off the accusation that the government has lost control of the influx of boat people. And who knows, it might even reduce the numbers a bit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; although that would be an unexpected bonus. As long as the policy

Well, in an election year it would, wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? by Mungo MacCallum now to be unleashed against the wretched of the earth. ASIO, it will be recalled, was originally set up to investigate the espionage activities of foreign interests in Australia. Over the years it was expanded to deal with what was loosely described as internal subversion, which generally meant lefties. In intellectual circles in the 60s and 70s, not to have an ASIO file was to be seriously socially disadvantaged. But the essential criterion remained: ASIO dealt with perceived threats to the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s security. It was expressly forbidden from investigating criminal activities, or if it ran across any by accident, from passing the information on to the police forces. Now Rudd has broadened its powers dramatically; ASIO and the other spy agencies will target the people smugglers and their accomplices, both in Australia and overseas, with the aim of securing criminal convictions under new and draconian laws. This will be time consuming and expensive, so yet again the

generates the right headlines it will be seen as a success. And so far it has; even The Australianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Greg Sheridan gave it an A plus, thus proving it can satisfy even the most devout paranoiac in the industry. It did not, however, satisfy the Liberal senator Simon Birmingham, who called it a diversion: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The greatest threat to the safety of many Australian families over the last 12 months has been the home insulation program and Peter Garrettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mismanagement of it and tragically thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an ongoing threat to safety,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he proclaimed and was promptly slapped down by his leader. This was a bit unfair; after all, it was Abbott who had talked of Garrett being charged with manslaughter, and who had hammered away at him for three parliamentary weeks to the exclusion of any other topic. Clearly he was not against a touch of hyperbole if there was political mileage in it. But that particular juggernaut had obviously ground to a halt. Garrettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defence had held up

surprisingly well. The opposition had thought it had finally found a smoking gun in the Minter-Ellison risk assessment report, which had been stuck in the bureaucracy for none months; the fact that Garrett had not even been shown it smacked of serious maladministration. But it turned out that the report was a pretty Mickey Mouse affair, just one of a number of sources the department had received and its serious recommendations had already been acted on. And most importantly, in spite of what the opposition and the media had claimed, it had not warned of deaths, fires and other disasters at all. Ironically the main warnings had been about the political problems associated with the scheme, and these had proved all too correct. As Rudd finally admitted, the program had been implemented ineffectively and a fair bit had gone wrong. He took personal responsibility and would go about setting things right. By the end of the week Garrett was off the hook and was even being applauded in the party room. He had lost some of his old portfolio, but he remained a cabinet minister. By any normal measure heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a winner. Ruddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position is more equivocal: if Garrett was worth supporting and preserving, why was he demoted? It proved a point Abbott, as a veteran of the Howard years, should have known: ministers are sacked not because of negligence or incompetence, but because they have become a political embarrassment; when the cost of losing them becomes less than the cost of hanging on. Rudd did not believe Garrett had reached that point so end of story â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for now. But Garrett has been shown to be vulnerable. The opposition will not give up the chase, and could have better luck next time.

Woolworths in Mullum? Bring it on! Q Just to let you know there are

a lot of people out there who will support Woolworths. I for one am sick of hearing about how it will do this and how it will do that. Well, it will bring extra work to the area. A lot of staff working for Mallams have already been offered work. Mallams wanted to put their shop on this site and there was a big hue and cry about it so they said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OK, you win, we will sell to Woolies.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I am sick to death of Byron Shire Council wasting our rates on this. What about fixing up the appalling roads in Ocean Shores and maybe putting in a few footpaths so that when you are walking you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t twist an ankle on the verge or break it on the road or slip on wet grass. The only thing is most people shake their heads and wonder why Woolworths is being victimised by a minority. Get over it, people, and move on. Pauline Kapral

Ocean Shores QI have to confess to being one of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;silent majorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The article in a Saturday Northern Star challenging Woolworths to share the cost of surveying â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the silent majorityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is I believe both senseless and arrogant and has prompted me to no longer remain silent. I am Mullumbimby born and bred, and have to say that I have not been able to identify even one person in the group opposing the Woolworths development who

Parade the joy I spent some time on the table outside Santos getting yet more signatures for a letter being sent to Mr Strong, yes, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right, Mr Strong, chairman of Woolworths, asking them to walk their talk regarding social considerations. I was interested that the vast majority of people we spoke to were not only eager to sign but expressed their appreciation for what we were doing to save the essence of our town. Even people from Sydney, Murwillumbah and Lennox signed. Some people went away to read the letter and think about it and many of them came back and joined the campaign. People were opposing the development for many different reasons that were important to them. The main ones being: inappropriateness of foisting a huge, ugly supermarket into the middle of a heritage residential area that floods; the cost to the rest of the community when local storeowners go broke and close down because of predatory pricing; traffic considerations; and sewerage. A big thankyou to all the

was born locally. It is my experience that all my locally-born friends and associates support Woolworths coming. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;newcomersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; who are opposed. The minority with the majority of say! Both my parents still live in Mullumbimby and are old aged pensioners with a strong commitment to shopping locally. Along with both my parents, I think only good can come from Woolworths coming to town. Like most of their generation, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t own a computer, so you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find them answering an online survey. My parents shop locally and have always been opposed to people â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;shopping out of townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for their weekly groceries. When people go out of town to shop at Woolies or IGA in Byron Bay, or Bi-Lo at Ocean Shores, they make a morning of it, or even a day of it and get their hair cut, have coffee, lunch, buy clothes, etc. If Woolies keeps them in Mullumbimby, they will do all those other things in town as well. When Woolworths came to Byron Bay, my brother owned an independent supermarket, one of two such supermarkets in Jonson Street. With the arrival of Woolworths, he chose to leave town and sold his lease to Westpac, to pursue other business interests. The other supermarket stayed and today still operates successfully in Lawson Street. On principle (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;they ran my brother out

of townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;), I at first refused to shop at Woolworths, but after a while found I had to, as I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get a park anywhere else! Business had picked up so much in the main part of town it was impossible to park in Jonson Street and still is most of the time. Not that I want to see Mullumbimby become like Byron Bay, but it never will. The two are â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;chalk and cheeseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. I wonder if it has ever occurred to the protesters that they have brought this on themselves! The original DA for this development was put together not by Woolworths, but by Mallams, a local company that I grew up with. The protesters say they are supporting local business, how hypocritical can you get! The truth is that if they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pushed so hard against the local business and cost them so much in legal fees etc, they would not have been forced to sell their DA to a multinational company like Woolworths and instead of dividing the town with this ridiculous protest, we would now all be celebrating the expansion of a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;true blueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; local business on the site, Mallams! The decision has been made, people. They are coming! Woolworths have done their sums. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to pack up your protest and go home!

Night February 19, details of interviews by a reporter in Mullumbimby regarding residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; views on Woolworths were presented.The presentation was typical of what the media can do with reporting after editing. Leave in what you think will make better headlines, leave out the rest. Their statement that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;of all of the residents interviewed only one elderly person was in favour of Woolies establishing in Mullumbimbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is an example of false reporting. I was another old-time resident (44 years) who spoke in favour and observed a series of interviews (including people who I am certain are in favour). When I approached the TV guy and asked him the percentage of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;for and againstâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;,his reply was about 50/50. Where did the other pro responses disappear to between here and Sydney? A later interview with the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Save Mullumbimby Mobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; apparently carried enough conviction to change the statistics. Reference to a referendum was stunning.

Really badly designed, it is often more dangerous to use them than not. In working towards a sustainable future, wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a vast and intricate cycle network be a great alternative to our current car-dependent paradigm?

Why has Garth Luke (Letters, February 16) got a bee in his bonnet about cyclists not wearing helmets? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to suggest that there is a bigger issue that we need to address. This community is crying out for well-designed cycle tracks to ride on. You can cross Europe safely on a vast and intricate cycle network. So why does the Byron Shire council find it so difficult to provide a safe cycle track to link Mullum, Byron, Bruns, Billi...?

The other day my friends and I were swimming at The Pass beach when a learning foreign surfer on a pointy short board was on a wave and heading straight for us. I jumped out of the way just in time to see one of my friends being run over. Luckily she dived beneath the wave, just under the fins of the board. It was a very close call and my mum always tells me to be aware of those boards, after the recent events. This is a subject we really need to draw attention to! Azaria Ashford

Events wrangling Council seeks your input? It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel that likely at the recent â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;community consultationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; held regarding the Draft Byron Shire Events Policy. The meeting was advertised (apparently â&#x20AC;&#x201C; though most community group leaders who attended only found out about by accident) and held at the Byron Surf Club Thursday night. Arriving there at the advertised time, there were no signs indicating where the meeting was, no lights and no sign of activity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;around the back, through the ladies and up the stairsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was the instruction called from an upstairs window by some intrepid explorer that actually managed to find the location. The tiny back room was nonetheless crowded, standing room only for many and who knows how many countless souls wandered away thinking they must have got the day wrong?

What followed was supposed to be an arena for community members to air concerns and gain insight into Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reasoning behind the policy and provide feedback for the areas which most impact on residents. The Council spokesman John Rushforth and Councillor Basil Cameron who attended the meeting have to be congratulated for both keeping their cool in what turned into a slanging match between big business reps from the major festivals who take offence that restrictions should be placed on them by the policy and guidelines and community members who are trying to ensure the policy is able to protect the way of life that has attracted most residents and tourists to the shire even before the times of large festivals. The question is, since the business community received their chance to talk freely with Council regarding their input into the Events Policy already on February 9, why did they feel it so necessary to stack the community meeting on Thursday, or if they wanted to attend simply as residents of the Shire, as is their right, then why not leave their business interests at the door and explain how the policy affects them as residents? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;But we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to make as much money if we are restricted in size and numberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is not a familiar thing to hear at a community consultation. Hats off to John Rushforth

Save our mental health service I am writing to express my concern and to inform the community of the recent government decision to axe the funding of a vital mental health support service in the northern rivers. The MISA (Mental Illness and Substance Abuse) Lifestyle Support Program is a community based outreach service for people who experience mental illness and struggle with drug and alcohol issues. Tragically, MISAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funding will come to an end in June 2010 and there is currently no future funding available to ensure the continuation of this vital service in our community. MISA operates out of The

Buttery, the widely acclaimed drug and alcohol rehabilitation centre located in Binna Burra. This vital service has been funded by the Australian Government Attorney Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department for the past five years. During this time MISA has offered support programs all over the north coast, covering the areas bordered by Tweed Heads, Ballina and Lismore. MISA supports individuals and their carers living in the community and offers a number of group programs promoting mental and physical health. The MISA team also provides educational programs to local high

schools which focus on early intervention and prevention and have been demonstrated to reduce the chance of developing mental illness. The MISA service is an outreach service which is a crucial component of support provision in a rural area such as the northern rivers. The urgent need for this service is reflected in the increasing incidence of mental health problems in our community. Recent research further suggests that the majority of people who experience mental illness also struggle with substance use issues. There is no other service on the north coast which provides

this essential and unique support to people struggling with both mental health and drug and alcohol issues. It is crucial that this funding be reinstated and that the MISA Lifestyle Support Program be enabled to continue to provide such an indispensable service to this rural and under serviced region. If you are going to be affected by this negligent government decision or would like to show your support for MISA please attend a peaceful demonstration outside our local member Justine Elliotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office on Thursday March 4 at 10.30am.

who remained non-judgemental and non-confrontational throughout the whole farce. Come on, Council, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s have some consultation with community groups on this, not just with business. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s get some real community input and make it the best tool it can be to encourage those in the shire who want to enrich the experience of living here while protecting it at the same time.

small skin cancer on the body of our neighbourhood, until it started to slowly spread its cancerous tentacles. (I know, interesting analogy for a hospital, but this one was all about profits over health.) First, they paved paradise â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the big field with lots of trees that we loved to play in as kids â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and put up a parking lot. Then, they started buying up all the houses surrounding it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; except my parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; place, of course â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with hopes of eventually bulldozing all these lovely homes, in a quiet, residentially-zoned area, in order to forge ahead with their elaborate, lunatic plans for expansion.

Most lawyers were astounded by my dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legal research and the way this high school maths teacher, local resident, father of four and President of Community could argue his case to show that everything the hospital had planned to do was either a) stupid, b) illegal, or c) not financially beneficial in the long run. To cut a thirty-year story short, the hospital never did expand, because basically, Goliath got worn down by being thwarted by David, and they finally realised that all of the above â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a, b and c â&#x20AC;&#x201C; were true.

Tide troubles I appreciate that your new moon/tide chart is more informative than the old format – the way it is presented however is extremely exasperating. This week’s Echo is a case in point. The issue is dated February 23, yet the tide chart is for March. This means that if you want to know the tides for next week you have to remember to put last week’s issue aside for reference and if you forget and use it to mulch the garden or catch paint drips or whatever,

you have to guess for the rest of the month. Surely in this age of computers the chart could be processed weekly so the information given is this week’s, and the subsequent three weeks is in synch with the actual date. Please consider. David Gilet

Breast screening How ironic is it to think that one of the known side-effects of breast screening for cancer with radiation-emitting techniques, such as those utilised by facilities such as clinics and mobile services, is actually well-documented to be, get this, cancer. People scream for ‘early detection services’, yet the truth is that this type of screening will only show tumours at the very least between one to two years old, often too late. Add to this the fact that for every actual positive detection, there are an equal number of false positives. This leads to much unnecessary trauma and dangerous ‘treatments’. Make no mistake about it, cancer is big business. The placebo effect can work both ways, and often the most deadly part about knowing you have cancer is knowing you have cancer, even if you don’t. There are safer and far more

An holistic vision for local tourism I refer to your editorial comment in The Echo of February 23 regarding Northern River Tourism’s International Destination Marketing Program. Northern Rivers Tourism is a not for profit, member based association whose remit is to sustainably develop and promote tourism in the Northern Rivers region. Our vision is that tourism is integral to the community, culture and economy of the Northern Rivers region. Northern Rivers region counts Byron Shire Council among its members and enjoys a good working relationship with staff and councillors. We’ve presented our vision, short and long term strategies to councillors and staff on three separate occasions and have always expressed our desire to collaborate with Council and the Byron Shire tourism

industry for mutually beneficial outcomes from tourism. We have expressed our vision for an holistic approach to tourism. This means that tourism should be viewed like any other sector, with costs and benefits, and that all aspects of the tourism ‘process’ – from research through management, development, promotion and the visitor experience – should be considered in strategic plans for tourism. With good planning and partnerships based on a clear understanding of objectives, the costs and benefits of tourism can be equitably distributed not only across Byron Shire but across the Northern Rivers. It is my understanding that the newly formed Tourism Advisory Committee has prioritised tourism management for Byron Shire and we sup-

port this. Our remit is not local tourism management but regional development and promotion, so while we are keen to participate in discussion and planning on tourism management with the TAC, it is not our role to direct this in any one shire or council of the Northern Rivers. Late last year we sought expressions of interest from tourism operators and tourism stakeholders (including local government) from across the region to participate in our International Destination Marketing Program announced last week. Based on the response we have partners from Tweed and Byron Shires in the program. It is not solely focused on Byron Bay, but recognises that travellers from overseas have heard of Byron Bay before they’ve

heard of any other place in the Northern Rivers. Far from directing everyone to Byron Bay’s town centre, the program will encourage international travellers to explore the wider region and provide distribution and promotional opportunities for the participating tourism operators. It will also promote experiences such as nature-based tourism, active outdoors, the arts and creative industries, regional markets and events, local produce and health and wellness. These are compelling reasons to both live in and visit the Northern Rivers region and we welcome the opportunity to share these experiences with like-minded travellers from around the world.

effective early detection methods than suffering tender breasts to unnatural squeezing and radiation which will eventually be the cause of what you are seeking to prevent. And therein lies the solution: prevention is better than cure. Eat natural, get daily vitamin D, for it is also a fact that since

the days of slip-slop-slap and regular sunscreen usage, rates of various forms of cancer have increased dramatically. In the US, for example, African-American women have twice the rate of breast cancer as fairer-skinned women, as the darker the skin, the more sun exposure you need to create your own vitamin D. Yet these women are being told to cover up, with fatal results. Vitamin D is now known to prevent at least 75% of all cancers. Simply don’t overexpose, and avoid at all costs unnatural radiation such as that used in breast-screening clinics.

to widen the creek. No telling by how much. Residents further down the creek should be alert – water could be in your backyard soon. The DA did not provide any detailed landscape and vegetation plans. Traffic management plans are totally inadequate. Mayor Jan Barham led the vote to push this development through Council in a great rush. Wonder why? ‘Byron Shire is located at Australia’s easternmost point with a population of almost 29,000. It is a thriving community where residents and visitors live, work and play in a sustainable environment and where Council strives to deliver the highest standard of local government services and infrastructure.’ – quote from Council’s front page on website. Decide for yourself how much of this is true. Mayor Barham is preparing her next career move to take a NSW upper house seat. I have voted green all my life. Not any more! I have campaigned and spent many hours on getting these green councillors onto Council. I deeply apologise for this mistake. Richard Staples and Patrick Morrisey voted against the DA.

land surrounding the Fire Trail, south of the Brunswick Heads Surf Club, has now been protected from vehicle entry. This involved meetings with Byron Shire Parks, Department of Lands in Grafton, and Landcare in Brunswick Heads. A pole and bollard fenceline is now in place, and I am assured that this will be maintained. With thanks to Andy Erskine, Superintendant Parks, Byron Shire Council. The land was partially cleared for this purpose and an iron pole gate replaces the old chain gate. With thanks to Frank McLeod, Senior Environment Officer, Grafton. The trees and shrubs removed were non native to this area. With thanks also to all those who signed the petition, to those who kindly offered boulders, though Council decided against this in the end, and to Chris Barry from Landcare, whose efforts to regenerate the area are currently being discussed.

A farewell to birthing for pioneering doctor David Miller Margo Sutton

Dozens of kids, parents and grandparents gathered at the home of midwife Ti Harrison and her husband Ian at their Fern Beach home recently for a special event. Guest of honour was local GP David Miller. Guests were invited to ‘come and celebrate David Miller’s farewell to birthing and his contribution and commitment over the years’, and many happily travelled long distances to do so. David is a pioneer in the home birth movement in this country, being the only rural doctor to practise home birth in Australia. As well as practising at home, with a cohort of loyal midwives, David adapted water birth techniques to a hospital setting, in the Susanne Jamieson low risk birthing centre at Mullumbimby Hospital. Many former patients, employees and medical colleagues and friends who, in many instances, hadn’t seen each other for over 25 years, stood up to the mike during the celebration dinner. Jenny Shaw, Nurse Unit Manager at Mullumbimby

Hospital, explained how the local home birthing successes led to the installation of the birthing bath at the birth unit, which in turn has planted the seed for the future blossoming of water birthing at John Flynn Hospital. Research has found that the bath is a low risk activity for women in labour, suitable for low risk births. As the evening progressed, we heard how babies were born in houses and gardens, in baths and on floors and in the case of baby Nisa, in a bath in a paddock in Huonbrook. A picture of his mother Trish Paul giving birth in this amazing setting, surrounded by family and friends, is one of the many illustrations in David Miller’s book Birth at Home. Sylvia Staff, whose baby Billie was the first home birth in the shire, travelled from northern Queensland to take the mike and tell how she gave birth to Billie at Upper Main Arm, with her husband Graham, David Miller and midwife Lorna in attendance, in 1980. She talked A younger Dr Miller weighs a baby. Photo John W McCormick about David’s quiet, calming presence and his tendency to David himself said, ‘I was a lesson by attending home let the labouring mother be the happy to help women deliver birthing. Women are more orchestrator of events. their own babies. I was taught empowered by giving birth in

ADVERTORIAL FOR TELSTRA COMMUNITY NEWS FOR LISMORE

Telstra committed to ‘Answer the Call’ for local Northern NSW Surf Life Saving Clubs BY MICHAEL SHARPE Telstra is working together with mid north coast Surf Life Saving Clubs to generate much needed funds as part of Telstra’s ‘Answer the Call’ fundraising campaign. Mid north coast residents can assist their local Surf Life Saving Club by connecting to an eligible Next G™ Mobile Phone plan or BigPond® Broadband service and Telstra will donate $30 to their nominated club. Surf Lifesaving NSW Support Officer, Miss Belinda Camp, said monies directed to surf clubs by Telstra will be warmly welcomed. “All monies will go towards purchasing vital rescue equipment which will help keep families and surfers safe at the beach”, said Ms Camp. Fourteen clubs in the mid north coast region received funds in 2009 as part of the ‘Answer the Call’ campaign, including Black Head, Cape Hawke, Crowdy Head, Forster, Hat Head, Port Macquarie, Tacking Point and Wauchope Bonny Hills. Last season, over 34,000 surf life savers conducted 10,600 rescues, 21,800 first aid services and 208,000 preventative actions at beaches around Australia. North Coast residents can visit their local T-LIFE™ store or participating Telstra stores to contribute to the ‘Answer the Call’ campaign. For more information about Telstra’s ‘Answer the Call’ campaign, visit www. telstra.com/answerthecall.

Rebekka Battista, Our Kids Fundraising Coordinator (left), and Michael Sharpe, Telstra Country Wide Manager, sign a new sponsorship to support Our Kids Foundation

Telstra extends sponsorship agreement with Our Kids Foundation Telstra and Our Kids Foundation have signed a new Gold sponsorship agreement, extending the long-term association between the two organisations into its sixth year. Our Kids supports local families and their children by purchasing vital medical equipment for Lismore Base Hospital, which allows them to remain in the local area instead of travelling to major centres such as Sydney or Brisbane for hospital treatment. “Our Kids could not do what we do without our valued supporters such as Telstra who, year after year, come on

board to be part of the Our Kids family,” said Our Kids Fundraising Coordinator, Rebekka Battista. Each year, Lismore Base Hospital, paediatric units manage the medical needs of approximately 10,000 children from Ballina to Urbenville, and Maclean through to Mullumbimby. Telstra has a long and proud history of supporting the NSW North Coast and this sponsorship will help ensure Our Kids can continue its great work. TCW0070/BSE

their own chosen surroundings. I learned fast not to be the boss. If a woman said “don’t press so hard” I received that lesson. The doctor’s job is not to interfere.’ Young Mullumbimby man Liam Bruce spoke about his birth at home in a bath. Other speakers included long time local doctors Michael Pelmore, who once shared a practice with David, and Marc Heyning, who presides over many births at Mullumbimby’s birth unit, which has a relaxing and welcoming home birth atmosphere. Midwife Jude, who worked with David for many years, said in Birth at Home, ‘When I first worked with David I was amazed by his caring calmness and his gentle non-intervention with the mother and babe. This was extremely different from the cold sterility of the labour ward and staff at hospital. I had never seen a doctor actually comforting and supporting a labouring mum with such dedication and confidence.’ Lorna Virgo was David’s first assistant and midwife in the

well supported by Jane Haines, who has been his secretary through three practices for 30 years and who, David says, ‘holds everything together.’ Home birth became acceptable in Australia over the last 20 years, but growing concerns and insurance-driven conservatism has once again driven home birth underground. David believes that this is a dangerous development as trained home birth has turned to ‘freebirth’, which goes on without professional help and is a life-threatening danger to both babies and mothers. Wikipedia states that private midwives are not currently insurable, so by default are unable to register as health professionals. On July 10 this year, all health professionals will be required to have insurance in order to register. David Miller, the only registered rural doctor practising home birthing in Australia, advocates government-funded insurance through the treasury managed funds in order to prevent freebirth, the risky DIY alternative to monitored labour, which

His medical skills were exceptional,’ said Lorna. ‘He came from a family which included three generations of doctors, but he chose to be a rural doctor, and Byron Shire has been the richer for that.’ Lorna recalls often sending her daughter on a pushbike to collect David from where he was building his boat, when he was needed in the surgery. When the yacht was finished, with the help of local tradesmen who had settled in the shire after the Aquarius Festival, David sailed away up the coast, and returned in 1983 to open another surgery in McGuigans Lane, in the building which was once a bank, an optometrist’s and now houses a chiropractic practice. Now he is engaged in part time practice in Brunswick Heads, where he sees patients two days a week. There he is

takes place without any professional help or government support. Over the past thirty years in the Byron Shire, 400 home birth babies were delivered safely, and there were no bad outcomes. Why is David retiring from home birthing? ‘I always loved the energy of birth but at my age, getting up and driving into the night is more of a young person’s job. But young doctors are avoiding this great work and my fear is that there will be no-one to teach and share the art. Now I’m happy to continue with my general practice and emergency work at hospital. However home birth is still the orphan of the healing arts! ‘At this party there were some young mothers who I had delivered as new babies up to 30 years ago, now with their own babies. It was very satisfying to feel the turning of the wheel.’ Q Birth at Home is available at Nature’s Child, Banksia Drive Arts & Industry Estate Byron Bay and Mullumbimby Bookshop. RRP $19.95.

Rudd betrays public on whaling Sue Arnold

Upgrading the Pacific Highway Tintenbar to Ewingsdale Planning approval The NSW Minister for Planning approved the Pacific Highway Tintenbar to Ewingsdale upgrade on 29 January 2010. The Chief Executive of the NSW Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA) subsequently agreed to proceed with the construction and operation of the project subject to the conditions set by the Minister for Planning, the RTA’s project priorities for upgrading the Pacific Highway and available funding.

The RTA will now start preconstruction activities to prepare the project for construction. These will include field investigations, property acquisitions and the start of the tender process.

803621

Planning approval documents are available on the project website or by contacting the project information line (see below).

Last week, we had PM Rudd assuring the Australian public that his government would take Japan to the International Court of Justice if whaling did not cease and that this action would be initiated by November, just before the start of the next whaling season. Across the pond, NZ’s Prime Minister Key indulged in a similar spin. A visit between Japan’s Foreign Minister and Minister Stephen Smith was widely broadcast with the Japanese Minister making a very muted response to the so-called threat of international legal action. A few days later, the International Whaling Commission released its draft proposals to ‘fix’ the IWC, thereby placating Japan and putting the whale killing show back on the road. This proposal has been drawn up over the last 12 months by a Small Working Group (SWG) of the IWC, consisting of a number of member governments including Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and the USA.

Behind-doors deal

12th - 13th June 2010

So on the one hand, PM Rudd tells the public that his government will take Japan to the international courts while behind the scenes, his officials have been negotiating a deal which will see commercial whaling resume. This draft proposal, the focus of a meeting of the SWG in Florida from March 2-4, is a disgraceful document. Not only does it allow Japan, Norway and Iceland to continue whaling, there is no suggestion that the Japanese whaling fleet should leave the Southern Ocean Sanctuary. As well, the draft allows for Japan to begin coastal whaling,

thus setting up another category of whaling in the IWC. If Japan is allowed to begin coastal whaling, this would be a discriminatory act likely to get right up the noses of countries like South Korea who are keen to have the same rights. A not unfair proposition. If the draft is accepted, Japan will be let off the hook of any potential international legal action. All doors to the international courts would be closed with the only option a challenge in a WTO Tribunal, a most unlikely event.

Quotas for killing So Australia has been involved in a deal behind the scenes which would absolutely prevent any future government from taking international legal action. Kevin Rudd at no time advised the public that his government is engaged in a process which would not only reward Japan for its violations of many international treaties, but involve Australia in setting quotas for killing whales. This is an act of supreme betrayal. In the face of polls which show that more than 90% of Australians oppose whaling and are very unhappy with Rudd’s broken promises, only a very arrogant Prime Minister would indulge in such double dealing. The proposal sets up a situation where any whaling by the three whaling nations would be policed and infractions enforced by its own personnel. Contracting governments would have the right to ‘apply sufficiently severe sanctions so as to effectively ensure compliance’. Given that Japan has no domestic legislation which protects whales, and given the obscene cruelty of the horrendous dolphin drives, it is highly unlikely that Japan is going to

ter Contracting Governments as time allows. Comments shall be brief. Yeah. They sure will. And if any of the NGO comments are not welcomed by Contracting Governments, then there’s a good likelihood that the NGO will lose accreditation or be suspended. In other words, two different sets of standards for governments and NGOs. There’s not a single whale species which has sufficiently recovered to allow whaling. Climate change is severely impacting the world’s oceans with consequences that are far reaching. Ocean acidity has enormous potential to create irreversible No policing environmental catastrophes, There are recommendations anoxic (dead) zones are spreadthat the IWC usher in a pro- ing; overfishing and pollution gram for ten years where all are having major impacts. hunting of great whales comes under their control.

A section which deals with vessel monitoring was obviously put together to thwart any efforts by Sea Shepherd to harass the Japanese whaling fleet. Whaling captains are advised that they have no need to broadcast their position if it might ‘endanger the safety and life of crews’. Never mind what the whaling fleet might do to the protest vessels. The contentious subject of whale killing methods has basically been consigned to the too hard basket.

Nuclear waste will arrive in this country from Scotland and France beginning in 2014. That’s not coming from me, that’s from Martin Ferguson, on behalf of the Rudd government. There is no wriggle room any more: the ALP, the Libs, and the Nats, are committed to the arrangement. It has been explained to us in the past, and it has begun. Last week, Howard government legislation imposing a waste dump on traditional owners was repealed, but as Ferguson pointed out, the waste is arriving. The Northern Land Council has already agreed on a site, Muckaty Station near Tennant Creek, but they may find another. Let’s examine how things now are. A foreign-owned

mining company operates a uranium mine in Australia, a highly dangerous activity. They sell the uranium overseas, with all the dangers of transporting the stuff. It is used to boil water in a power station. Then it comes back here, even more dangerous and unstable, and is stored at our expense, for at least 750 million years. The profits go to largely overseas shareholders. The risk is all ours. Risk. Let’s see; in the last 100,000 years Australia has been largely submerged, through an ice age, a wet continent of forest, oh, and a new species arrived, humans. We’ve existed about 150,000 years and we only learnt part of how something as basic as rainfall works within living memory. Gondwana began to break up 167 million years ago, it is

surmised. How can there be any practical risk management over a period of time where absolutely anything will happen and the continent will have smashed through South-East Asia? ? There can’t. This will cost us, forever. It is a purely corrupt deal between mining companies and politicians, at our expense. It must be stopped. It can only be stopped by taking control the federal government. This can be achieved. A coalition of independents must be formed with an agreed binding agenda. Candidates must run in every electorate. This nuclear lunacy and larceny must end. Q Matthew Hartley of Byron Bay intends to run as an independent candidate for the federal seat of Richmond.

This circumstance leads to a variety of physical and psychological ailments and illnesses. Atlasprofilax is a neuromuscular technique that liberates the Atlas with only one application Accurately, Safely and Permanently. This powerful relocation immediately activates a self-healing and harmonising process. It is holistic in nature, promoting wellness and rejuvenation on all levels, mind, body and spirit. This method is non-medical, non-chiropratic.

One treatment can be life changing. The Atlas supports your head and governs structural alignment. A misaligned Atlas causes restriction of the brain stem, spinal cord, cranial nerves and arteries. This limits our potential for wellbeing and creates tension, restricting the free flow of energy. When the Atlas is installed correctly, the body begins an unwinding process, releasing holding patterns and enabling the body to heal and regenerate.

To take a giant step towards your health and wellbeing, contact Sidika Ashauer, Brunswick Heads clinic. 0427 805 405 www.pain-free-me.com

YOUR COLLEGE YOUR FUTURE 22 March 2, 2010 The Byron Shire Echo

Story & photo Mary Gardner

A silent creature that has no need for a skin surfaces in my garden. After the recent heavy rain, it rests the ground from the old tree stump to the fence, about a metre. I look down on a set of white puffy discs, each the size of my hand. But close up, the surface is a crowd of stiff frilly tubes tightly packed together. It’s a fungus. Moving through the soil, focusing on the tree stump and dead roots, the fungus is more animal than plant. Like any animal, it eats other dead organisms. But instead of swallowing and digesting its food in a stomach, it oozes digestive enzymes around itself and into its meal. Then it absorbs what it likes of the predigested nutrients and leaves the rest. Unlike animals, it doesn’t have to process any waste. A fungus seems like a sometime thing. That’s only because for much of its life, it exists as an underground growth. It’s a mass of threads called hyphae: cells that divide over and over again but do not separate. Like plants, the cells have walls providing structural support. Unlike plants, the cell walls are made of chitin. That’s the same material used by insects and other jointed leg creatures like crabs and shrimp. Every hyphae is also a pipeline of nutrition. Drawing on adequate food and moisture upstream, the tips can grow very quickly. They can suddenly change their body shape, going from micro to macro overnight. What they develop – the familiar mushroom or these unique discs of tubes – are ‘reproductive bodies’. What an awkward phrase! Acting on some cue, the fungus changes, creating a fleshy launching pad. From here, spores burst out, into the wind or onto the legs of some insect. There are small flies crawling all over. When the spores land, preferably on a tasty dead thing, the fungus may grow anew. Depending on the process the fungus used to create the spores,

the new growths may be clones. These are genetically identical to their origins. Fern plants do something vaguely like this. Or, if the spores are the result of a mating between two different fungi, the new growth is an offspring of the parents. This is something like sex and babies, as we, along with other animals, know it. But the ‘mating’ is between ‘types’: one naked nucleus simply fuses with another unlike it. This happens somewhere in the hyphae. No sperm and eggs are involved. A variety of ‘parents’ donate nuclei at different times, which are saved until the right moment. There is no hurry. Now, at halfway with the writing of this, I step out to visit the fungus creature. I don’t know its name. Only since 1959 has science made a separate kingdom of fungi. That’s when Robert Whittaker insisted on grouping together all these external digesters whose bodies change from threads to launch pads to spores and back again. There’s a lot more work to do sorting out which species is which. The bodies are so variable, even within a species. I get moody. I wonder if the article so far is evocative enough to startle readers. Will they look twice now at a wild

fungus? Will they want to know more? I remember being startled when I first read about Tolkien’s Ents, the ancient tree-like shepherds of the forest. Could there be lively, intelligent but utterly mysterious qualities to my favourite old willow tree? Years of labs, field work and incessant reading have built on my first fanciful glimpse of Ents. I learned to respect data, whatever observations or numbers or results. To know how not to go beyond the facts is an important restraint on the imagination. But by staying very close to the material world, imagination carries awareness into it. This is the match lit in a cave. The scent the bee or ant carries back to the hive or colony. The feel of the sea between each silver butterfly fish in the school of hundreds. Being human, we use our hands and create art. We use our voices and tell stories. Bit by bit, the art and literature of science grows. Such books by Lewis Thomas, David Suzuki and Rachel Carson are widely loved for their beauty as well as their impact. Last year, Richard Dawkins published an anthology of outstanding writings by scientists. Last month, the New Yorker published an extract from E O

Wilson’s new novel. As might be expected from a renowned specialist of ants, the story is of a boy fascinated with ant colonies. The MIT science journalism reviewer Paul Raeburn describes the book as ‘science fictive’. California’s Education Department runs a website cataloguing quality science writing for students from kindergarden through high school. The Australian Science Communicators is now compiling a list of recent works by science writers based in Australia. The British Society for Literature and Science at Cambridge University reviews fiction as well as nonfiction works. There are inspiring readings for everyone. Behind every splash of words, every drawing or photo, there is craftsmanship. That these works also have a contagious imagination and awareness – I end up reaching for the word in another language. The old Chinese poetpainters called this conjuring quality shiyi. After another night of rain, parts of my fungus are brown, dissolving into jelly. Even as it digests dead tree roots, something else is eating away at it. There are more flies. Perhaps some spores have been launched just in time. Maybe some stick to the legs of flies and travel far away.

A nostalgic look back at a 70s childhood Goodbye Crackernight is a comic memoir of growing up in 1970s Australia by Alstonville resident Justin Sheedy. Justin will be signing copies of his new book and speaking in-store at Mary Ryan’s Books, Byron Bay, on Friday March 19 and Saturday 20 from 10am. According to the publicity, ‘Goodbye Crackernight is the story of one boy’s childhood in 1970s Australia, back when a child’s proudest possession was not a Playstation, but a secondhand bike. ‘It is a story of fireworks, of

fun that cost nothing, UFOcrowded skies, streakers, limegreen Valiants, half-sucked Sunny Boys and electric-pink hotpants. ‘It is a story of growing up and innocence left behind – at a three-day pool party. It is the tale of an era, of far simpler times, of an annual neighbourhood festival and an Australia now long gone. ‘Justin Sheedy was born in 1968 and grew up in North Epping in Sydney’s north-west suburbs. ‘He was educated by the Lit-

tle Sisters of No Mercy, then by the Jesuits, and obtained a degree in fine arts, qualifying him to drive a cab. He has worked in radio, for a while as a go-go dancer as well as for the Australian Public Service though has since made a full recovery. ‘If you have ever worked in the public service, you will understand. If you still do work in the public service, Justin remembers you, so you better have been nice to him as he’s writing books now. ‘His inspiration to write this

book was the across-the-board and instant enthusiasm he received from anybody of his generation to whom he ever mentioned “Crackernight” or any of the minutiae that formed childhood in 1970s Australia: the firecrackers, the TV shows, the crazes, the toys, the lollies, the games, the clothes, the parents, the hideous 70s colour schemes…’ Goodbye Crackernight, published by Sid Harta Publishing, is currently available through all good bookstores and online at http://sidharta.com. www.echo.net.au

Buy yourself some gumboots and a good all weather back pack and start manifesting, a ticket to entertainment paradise could be yours!

Amanda Palmer is the female half of the gothically charged Dresden Dolls. With the help of Ben Folds, Amanda has created a solo album (Who Killed Amanda Palmer) and has embarked on a national tour. Seven caught up with her and shot through a few quick questions. So why did you choose to work with Ben Folds on your solo release? Ben actually got in touch with me, since he got magically turned onto The Dresden Dolls somehow and loved our work. When he asked if he could produce me it was a no-brainer. Are there themes that you can touch on when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re solo that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as The Dresden Dolls? No, the subject material is always wide open. Why Who Killed Amanda Palmer? Are you a David Lynch fan? Hell yes. I really love David Lynch and his perfect sense of irony and beauty. I grew up worshipping at the altar of Blue Velvet. What is it about cabaret that you feel hits a chord with audiences? Cabaret to me is a state of mind...itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not so much a genre as a sense of freedom and inclusiveness. I always want to feel like my shows are parties more than performances. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a two-way street: you need to convince the audience to come on board with that concept. But they always do. I love the forties feel that you often pick up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; do you think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the great undiscovered decade? The forties were an amazing timeâ&#x20AC;Ś heavily influenced by the war in a way that I think most people have a hard time relating to directly nowadays. But there was a surge of creativity all over the art map, especially in songwriting and film.

Do you think the burlesque movement has opened the door for more interesting performances or is it too easy for it to be re-interpreted as girls dancing in their underwear? I think â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Burlesqueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is like any genreâ&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll act as a creative umbrella and the real talent will float to the top. Tits float! As a woman in the music industry cutting her own path, how do you feel about the pressure to homogenise music, particularly women musicians? That pressure is ever-present but it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t limited to women. Anybody can ignore the blaring call of the mainstream, you simply have to turn up the volume of your own creativity. How important is the audience to your show? How do you connect or engage them? The audience is the lifeblood of my show, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist as a performer without them. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m therefore constantly, openly grateful for their support and attention. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever take it for granted that someone will spend their money on a ticket to my show, and I hope I never feel that way. What should we expect for the Bangalow show? Well, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my first show in the area so it will depend a lot on the energy of the crowd that shows up. Usually at smaller shows like this I simply drink wine, take requests, and see where the night takes me. A good time is guaranteed for all. And sometimes Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go topless, if somebody bribes me with delicious foods. Bring chocolate! Amanda Palmer performs at the Bangalow A&I Hall on Monday. Tickets were $33/40 but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now a 2 for 1 deal. So bring a friend and get in for half the price!

The Byron Shire Echo March 2, 2010 23


Once upon a time people used to ‘pop in’. They were called visitors, and they would just turn up, unannounced. You’d drop everything, put on the kettle, pack the bong, crack out some biscuits and settle in for a natter. Sometimes the visitor wouldn’t leave for two days and you’d be coming up with ways of evicting them. I once fabricated a letter from Centrelink threatening to cease payments if this particular dude didn’t go to the Lismore office immediately. It was the only way I could get rid of the hippy who’d been sleeping on my porch. I would have asked him to leave earlier but he made a wicked cup of tea and he was the father of one of my kids. The Pop In is now a thing of the past. These days you don’t even pop in on your best friends. It’s a social no no. Nobody wants a surprise knock on the door. If anyone just turns up without texting or calling or making an arrangement it’s like being caught in the middle of Ecstacy production by the cops. You block the doorway and stammer ‘We’re about to go out. The kids have got ballet.’ If you’re not a scheduled part of the day then you just don’t stand a chance. I’ve been trying to catch up with one of my girlfriends for three months now. Neither of us seem able to find a day where we can actually meet. We just don’t have time for each other any more. We’re all so fricking busy. We ask each other all the time ‘How are you?’ ‘Busy’. Busy? Doing what? It’s not like we’re out the back grinding wheat for our daily bread or pulling cow teats for a cappucino. We’re adding photos of ourselves on Facebook or bolting off to a ten day Vispassna, where visitors most definitely are not welcome.

popping in I grew up in a country town. We had visitors every day. It made life interesting. You never knew which loser was going to turn up next. Mum was widowed at 27, still a few good breeding years left in her, so a lot of the doorknockers were hopeful suitors, bearing gifts and erections. There was one particular chap, a Mr Suttcliffe, who called at least once a week. He would have been 70. She may have been over 40 years younger, but it was still worth a crack. You can’t buy that kind of selfesteem. You need to be born with it. Every time we saw his vomit green Hillman Hunter pull up, Mum would yell ‘shut the door, hide’. It was like being Anne Frank. We’d drop to the floor, roll under the couch. I’d say, ‘But mum, our car’s in the drive’. She’d snarl in a whisper ‘maybe we’ve gone walking’. Mr Suttcliffe’s feet would bounce the step, his shadow moved across the window as he peered in through the glass. We were paralysed in stillness. He’d knock again. Ring the bell. It’s amazing how long a man with a libido will wait. Finally his

despondent feet would trudge up the gravel. I’d jump to watch him leave. Peering through the drapes I noticed him dragging flowers, a bottle of lemonade in one arm, and, what was that purple flicker? Yep, a big bag of Violet Crumbles. ‘Mum, he’s got chocolate!’ I was out the door in a shot, tackling him at the gate. ‘Mum made us hide!’ I sat there that afternoon feasting on chocolate honeycombed gorgeousness watching my mother squirm as his old man hands kept making their way to her legs, her arms, her neck. I didn’t care. I had lemonade. After three hours of fighting off his advances with a wet tea towel his erection must have subsided, so he left. Mum came into my bedroom and gave me the biggest tea towel whipping of my life. I’ve never been able to even look at Violet Crumbles ever since. Years ago I had a friend who would just turn up. Over the years I noticed that her conversation had become delusional. She was convinced she was being followed by ASIO. I’m like, ‘Rachel, you’re on a disability pension living in Ocean Shores, why would they follow you?’ Her confusion and stress continued and it made the visits bizarre and tense. One day I decided that I should just bite the bullet, so over my cup of tea I smiled kindly and said, ‘I think you may be schizophrenic, I’d like to take you down to the health centre so you can talk to someone who can help you.’ She looked at me shocked and shrieked ‘They got to you too!’ And she left. I have never seen her again. So, if you have a visitor who just won’t leave, try telling them they have a mental health problem. They’ll never pop in again.

The F**ker from Drive By Truckers Having spent a sizeable chunk of the Naughties as the third singer/songwriter/ guitarist in one of the most rapturously acclaimed rock bands on the planet – the Drive-by Truckers –Jason Isbell knows all about having to put your best foot forward every time. With only his second solo record, he delivers what may well be a careerdefining masterpiece. Isbell lives in Florence, Alabama, just outside Muscle Shoals. He recorded his new album at the famed FAME Studios there, and extends a tradition that began with the artists and songwriters (including Aretha Franklin, Duane Allman, Otis Redding, Arthur Alexander, Tony Joe White, Eddie Hinton, Joe South, Dan Penn and Spooner Oldham) whose work is synonymous with both the town and the studio. Add to these classic rock, soul and country references a touch of the Southern poprock tradition as defined by Memphis’s Big Star, whose When My Baby’s Beside Me he has recorded for an Australiaonly bonus track on the album, and you have a pretty good idea of not only the style of the music that Jason loves but the quality he is aspiring to. Although he recorded the new album with his band The 400 Unit, he’ll be visiting Australia for the first time solo. Fans of young gun country singersongwriter Justin Townes Earle – who listed ‘Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit’ in his Top 10 albums of the year – had best get to Justin’s shows early, and

On the Weed Musical legends in Australia, the ‘stoner rock’ riffs of Wollongong’s Tumbleweed inspired a whole generation of music lovers when they emerged in 1990s from the seeds of the Proton Energy Pills and the Unheard. Tumbleweed burst onto the scene in a huge way by gaining infamy courtesy of a national support slot to the one and only Australian tour by the legendary Nirvana back in 1992. It didn’t take long for Australia’s major labels to realise that a national treasure existed in the fivepiece, after which Polydor Records became the recording home of Tumbleweed in ‘92. (Incidentally, Polydor/Polygram later came under the umbrella of Universal Music Australia). Tumbleweed released the (in) famous albums Galactaphonic and Return To Earth, all the while undertaking countless tours around the country as well as throughout the UK and USA. Despite their chequered

history with its many ups and downs including several band line-up changes, Tumbleweed have settled their differences and have agreed to perform once again for the first time in way way too long! The original lineup of Richie, Lenny, Paul, Jason and Stephen will be performing at the Great Northern Hotel Byron Bay on Saturday.

The Byron Shire Echo March 2, 2010 25


The Gold Coast’s worldly reggae, funk and rhymes trio, Anarchist Duck, return to Byron Shire to play at the Nimbin Hotel (Friday, 7.30pm), Sheoak Shack in Fingal (Saturday 7pm) and The Rails in Byron (Sunday 6pm). For a 3-piece band, Anarchist Duck manage to make a huge sound of worldly proportions, fusing reggae, soulful harmonies, funk and a dash of hip hop.

Welcome to Avalon Mickey Avalon’s 2010 Australian headline tour touches down at the Hotel Great Northern on Sunday. In a most insightful statement which has delighted Aussie feminists all around the country, this poster boy for PC has said: ‘The Ave is coming back in search of ‘The Map of Tassie ’. Avalon, well known to Australia, will be on the road to promote his sophomore album, tentatively titled Electric Gigolo, which is slated to be released in 2010. This second album includes Avalon’s first single Stroke Me, Fast Life which was produced with Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, and track Sticky Mickey featuring Ke$ha.

Al Di Meola World Sinfonia Al Di Meola’s World Sinfonia band blends classical, jazz, and tango music with Middle

Eastern overtones. The result is an electrifying mix complete with sophisticated rhythms, haunting and alluring melodies, and of course some thrilling action both on electric and acoustic guitars. Al Di Meola holds the most prestigious guitar awards (of any guitarist in the world) from the highest rated guitar poll in the world, Guitar Player Magazine. He has been known throughout the world for the past three decades as one of the most prominent virtuosos in the contemporary instrumental jazz field. A pioneer of blending world music and jazz, his first three albums are some of the finest jazz fusion guitarbased recordings ever: 1976’s Land of the Midnight Sun, 1977’s Elegant Gypsy and 1978’s Casino. Al Di Meola, again and again, reveals himself as a seasoned gifted contemporary composer and a player of deepening grace and evocative lyricism. He has been continually cited by many of the top prominent music critics around the world for his virtuosic guitar work and compositions. Al’s intrigue with complex rhythmic syncopation combined with provocative lyrical melodies, always incorporating sophisticated harmony, is at the root of these serious but heartfelt works. He performs at the Byron High School Auditorium on Wednesday.

beatsNbops Golden Bug

LA LA LAND ON THURSDAY Golden Bug is a robot kid called Antoine Harispuru travelling all the way from Paris to La La Land. Antoine Harispuru was partly educated by Victor, a Japanese robot from Osaka. The robot was living at a Parisienne toy shop owned by little Antoine’s mum. Victor the robot taught him to speak and to dance. When Antoine turned fourteen, Victor got Antoine a Roland TR808 drum machine, a sampler and some old seventies soul and eighties electro funk records. Antoine started mixing dark Italo bass lines, crisp synthesizers as well as some Prince vocals, composing what he calls robotic disco funk. When years later the German Gomma boys found Antoine and his robot funk it came natural that Antoine the robot man joined the Gomma gang. Four years of co-producing, four singles and one album later, the Golden Bug has now become one of the most sought after producers in

his genre. Golden Bug has remixed dance artists such as In Flagranti, Delphic, Who Made Who, Two Door Cinema Club, We Have Band, Adam Freeland, Playpaul, Rodion and Lost Valentinos. Labels such as Kitsune, Marine Parade and the Bang Gang have snapped up theGolden Bug and Antoine’s latest EP has just been released on Gomma. Q: Are you future disco? A: ‘I love mixing old discofunk elements with electronic beats and modern production; cutting, slicing, pitching etc.’ Q: Disco has been remixed, recycled and reinvented over and over again, why do you think it still works for new generations of clubbers? A: ‘Disco is still working because disco can’t die. Strong melodies, amazing beats, hypnotic voodoo drums, all the good spices to cook a proper dance floor and to have a good time.’ Q: Is your artist alias inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s short story, The Golden Bug?

A: ‘I designed a toys series for a Spanish company four years ago and one of the toys was named Golden Bug.’ Q: Have you got any more releases you would like to tell people about? A: ‘I’ve just released the Flamingo remixes by Inflagranti, Pete Herbert, Rovedogs and Herr Styler.’ Q: What is a good gig to you? A: ‘Nice people, fat sound system and dry white wine. Q: What would your best advise be to someone who would like to make music production and composition their bread and butter, their lifestyle? A: ‘Try to concentrate on three tracks and develop a personal touch on the production. Then be patient, go out to meet people and make remixes.’ Q: What are you looking forward to visiting Byron? A: ‘I am really happy to play in Byron Bay. It will be my first gig in Australia so I am very impatient to play at La La Land. Friends of mine told me it was great! So happy to come to Australia, it’s too cold here.’ Q: What can people expect from your gig at La La Land?

A: ‘A mix between heroin disco and dirty electric funk.’ Golden Bug is joined by Brisbane’s Ladyboy and Daniel Webber this Thursday. !

LiQUiD A hot week at LiQUiD kicks off with Homebrew Psytrance on Wednesday and packs out with Sould Out DJs J-ROC (Canada) on Thursday. Liquid Friday’s treat is Ministry Of Sound and the Clubbers’ Guide To 2010, hosting Sydney’s Hook N Sling, Deegs, LT80, Dave C, Captain Kaine, Adam Taylor, Jazz and Dave Basek. Liquid Saturday supercharges into Sunday with UK’s Deekline, Skool Of Thought and Plaza De Funk supported by local DJs Gravy and Sangers.

La La Land Before La La Land waves goodbye to summer, the club is throwing ‘the party to end all parties‘. Join La La Sunday down at Byron Main Beach for beach volley ball at 1pm. Then it’s back to the club at 8pm for a free BBQ. Captain Kaine, Daniel Webber, Easy P and the Disco Hookers will get this party jumpin’.

Supporting Super-Sensitive People

Skill up now for a dynamic career

Highly sensitive people are born with a uniquely attuned nervous system, which enables them to take in an abundance of information from the world around and within them. This ability can be both a profound gift and a supreme challenge. Super Sensitive People are often considered weak or silly, but in fact their senses are simply overloaded by incoming information from their world: light, temperature, sounds, images, moods and emotions, change, physical sensations and fabrics, foods and substances – any one of these can quickly become upsetting or unpleasant for a highly sensitive soul. Michelle is a psychologist who understands the needs of sensitive people and can help you make the most of your unique nature.

After having a World Premiere at Berlin and an American Premiere at SXSW, My Suicide is having its Australian Premiere at BBFF. Starring Gabriel Sunday, Brooke Nevin, David Carradine, Mariel Hemingway & Joe Mantegna this is a dark, romantic comedy about Archie Williams, an isolated high school teen, who becomes the most popular kid in the school when he announces he’s going to kill himself on camera for his final video class project. Is Archie truly suicidal? Or is he like Harold in Harold & Maude, merely fascinated with death, seeking attention, and searching for some higher reality and love?

remains calm, assuring him that it was not his fault, when clearly it was. Belatedly, there is a twist when a sports legal eagle accuses the Tuohys and Michaelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tutor of having an undue influence on his decision to enroll at Ole Miss (Mississippi Uni), but this too is a storm in a teacup. My neighbours laughed a lot, but the humour eluded me, as did the emotion of the conclusionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intended waterworks. The best bit comes with the credits when the real life Michael Oher is seen being drafted into the NFL, showing much more animation than Aaron does throughout the preceding 128. As a case study, it puts the hole in wholesome. ~ John Campbell

Valentineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day Captain Kate Hazeltine of the US Army (Julia Roberts), flying home on leave, starts chatting with the elegantly stubbled young man next to her (Bradley Cooper). For a minute, visualising them on a train steaming through the night on its way to Waterloo Station, you might get the sense of a bittersweet Ealing rom-com in the making (maybe featuring Dirk Bogarde and Glynis Johns). But no, the central character turns out to be Reed (Ashton Kutcher), a florist who has been dumped by his girlfriend only hours after sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d accepted his proposal of marriage. Does the cute, Beatle-browed baritone in the pink T-shirt find a truer, more suitable partner who will mend his broken heart? The odds are unbackable. This mathematically contrived, poor manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Love Actually, is aimed squarely at the consumers of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jen wants Brad backâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; glossies you see at the checkout and, for those lost souls, the stars come tumbling like manna from heaven. Catering to all age groups, there is even a part for one of the Twilight boys, though thankfully itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the monolithically vain and vacuous Robert Pattinson. Anne Hathaway provides laughs with her character moonlighting as a phone-sex worker and Jennifer Garner gets the sob story as the sad girl being jilted by the bastard doctor â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it was as well that Robertsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scenes are on a plane, otherwise I might not have been able to tell the two apart. I took some interest in Jessica Bielâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kara, but only because of a personal prejudice, for theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all equally nice people â&#x20AC;&#x201C; except of course for the two-timing cad â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and, by God, are they attractive or what!? I confess to not tipping the revelation of the two gay guys, but after two hours I was preoccupied in figuring out if the bloke who played

Shirley MacLaineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband was Captain Stubing from The Love Boat and wondering what surgical implements are used to get Jamie Foxxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hairline so Wilkinson Sword sharp. And just when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re near choked to death from the cheese overdose (Home Brand, not King Island), Director Gary Marshall unexpectedly produces a moment of enchantment and melancholy (which is also more than passing similar to the closing shot in front of the outdoor cinema in How To Lose Friends And Alienate People), when he has MacLaine making up with hubby before an old blackand-white movie in which she is featured. It prompted me to go home and watch her in Billy Wilderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Apartment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a class act, which this is not. ~ John Campbell

Up In The Air This film stars George Clooney as Ryan Bingham, a corporate downsizing expert. His entire job consists of flying around America and firing total strangers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the people whose actual bosses donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;have the ballsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to do the firing themselves. Ryan is never happier than when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up in the air â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;to know me is to fly with meâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; - and prides himself on his professional expertise. Not to mention his lack of an emotionally committed private life. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intelligent, eloquent and a sharp student of human frailty and vulnerability. Happiness means being up in the air, at armâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s length from everyone. This is a charming film that touches on many truths. What more could we ask than to be in the company of the seductive Mr Clooney for this adventure that flies. ~ Lounge Cinema

That writer/director John Lee Hancockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s film is based on an inspiring true story should make it immune from underhanded digs at its bland monotony, but honestly, episodes of The Partridge Family have provided more drama and uncertainty. Lee Anne Tuohy (Sandra Bullock), a wealthy Memphis businesswoman, sees homeless Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron) trudging through the rain one night and tells her husband Sean to turn the SUV around and pick up the giant black teenager. He attends the same Christian high school as her daughter Collins, where his grades indicate that he is destined for the scrap heap. Lee Anne, empitomising the can-do American (it is the ideal rather than the portrayal that might win Bullock an Oscar) embraces the Goliath as one of the family. Sean, Collins and SJ (is it a prerequisite that irritating little kids are known by their initials?) are openarmed as she pushes Michael to reach his potential, which, provided his marks improve, is on the footy field (be warned â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there is an ample sufficiency of gridiron to negotiate). Bullockâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Johnny One-Note performance is bereft of light and shade, but there no denying that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s her movie, primarily because the other characters are barely written at all. Michael, whom she turns into a symbol of what can be achieved through observing the virtues of selfbelief, hard work and clean living, is given scant attention, his background hinted at in a whirl of barely comprehensible flashbacks as all attention is paid to his elegantly groomed mentor. On and on it goes, with Lee Anne never ruffled â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even when Michael totals the SUV that the Tuohys have bought for him, nearly killing SJ in the prang that you could see coming a mile off (for one thrilling moment, with the blood splattered brat lying on the asphalt, I thought the big fella had succeeded), she

Veselin Topalov enjoyed the perfect warm-up for his upcoming World Championship match with victory in the elite Ciudad de Linares tournament in Spain. ‘I am very satisfied,’ said Topalov after capturing the ‘Wimbledon of Chess’ and the 75,000 Euro first prize by half a point ahead of Russia’s Alexander Grischuk. ‘Winning such a tournament outright is never easy. I tried to play relaxed, without any pressure and I have been lucky in

COFFEE WINNER

For the second year in a row, the Byron at Byron Resort and Spa has won â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Best Resort Accommodationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for an accommodation property under 100 rooms in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Australianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Travel & Tourism Awards. This would come as no surprise to anyone who has ever experienced the combination of utmost professionalism and warmly personal service offered there. To celebrate this Award, the Byron at Byron is offering locals a complimentary glass of wine with every Monday to Thursday restaurant booking (lunch or dinner) for the month of March. And from June 1 until July 5 the resort will close for maintenance. Sales and Marketing Manager Holly Galbraith has issued a statement saying that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Byron at Byron prides itself on delivering consistently high customer service at all times. Therefore, to ensure there is no disruption to clientsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; holiday experience, we have made the decision to close the Resort completely for a five week period while these (maintenance) works are undertaken...â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Enabling, in addition, the crew to take a well-deserved break!

Another local coffee company has just been recognised for excellence at the Sydney Royal Fine Food Show. Hills of Byron Coffee, established in 2004 by Greg and Janice Jansen and situated in Dunoon, has won a Silver Medal for its 100% Single Origin Plunger Coffee. The farm, next to Rocky Creek Dam, has its own processing and roasting facilities and their 15,000 arabica coffee trees have only been harvested twice. Meanwhile, Justin Telfer of Bangalow Cheese Company wonders if he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t created a bit of a monster with his latest swag of awards from the same Fine Food Show, what with requests for 1,000 samples of his winning Nashua Washed Rind and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the phone running off the hookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The latter cheese just won not one but three awards, a Gold, a Champion Fancy Cheese and a Champion Bovine. In addition his Bangalow Cultured Butter won a Silver Award.

Victoria Cosford ends in tears. Cooking is to please and enrich and nourish. With my painting, I want them to have their heart broken and sewn back together in the same day, in the same picture, in the same moment.’ Of course the photography throughout is beautiful, depicting the artists and examples of their work. You might not actually reproduce any of the recipes – not least Alan Mitelman’s tripe dish Flaki Wolowe which he recommends serving with ‘vodka stolen from a neighbour that has been secreted away for just such an occasion’ – but it is a fascinating book to dip in and out of, for anyone who loves both food and art. Bread is what constitutes lunch for many people, artistic or otherwise, generally in the form of a sandwich or two – and bread is one of the subjects treated seriously in Bourke Street Bakery – The Ultimate Baking Companion. Written by the two chefs and co-owners of this popular Sydney inner-city bakery, it is a satisfyingly fat, lushly photographed guide to baking the sorts of glorious breads, pies, tarts and pastries which have sealed their reputations. I sought the bakery out one Sydney visit and forced myself to wait in the long line stretching out of the shop, just to see what the fuss was about. This book painstakingly takes you through the lengthy process involved in making your own breads – sourdough, yeasted, olive oil-based – as well as croissants and danishes; it instructs you on equipment, ingredients, the cooking environment in clear layman’s terms so that, without pretending it is simple, it ensures a perfect understanding of the art of baking. All the recipes are mouthwatering as is the photography – and even if you end up cheating and buying your own puff pastry, the pleasure in whipping up, say, Sweet Potato, Chicken and Lime Pickle Pie or a Mushroom and Herb Pissaladiere topped with buffalo mozzarella is indisputable. ‘All sorrows are less with bread’, said Cervantes in Don Quixote – and after reading this book you can only concur.

BYRON BAY

Some years back a freelance writer/art gallery owner and a freelance photographer dreamed up the concept of producing a book linking food to art. Through a series of interviews with Australian artists, what emerged was The Artists’ Lunch, a beautiful coffee-table tome providing insights into the private lives (and tastes) of some of the country’s more prominent artists. As writer Alice McCormick says in the preface, ‘the artists’ approaches to food and drink, work and pleasure, turned out to be as various as their art.’ And so there is the magnificent Margaret Olley reminiscing about her idyllic childhood growing up on the banks of the Tweed River and the Sunday picnics partaken with other families. There is Dorothy Napangardi who confides that, despite all the travelling her (successful) career affords her, she still loves ‘sharing a kangaroo tail cooked on the campfire followed by the sugar from the leaves of a eucalyptus tree.’ Anna Zahalka likes ‘the idea of an artist’s luncheon that might evolve into a drunken or disorderly affair, much like the tavern scenes of Dutch paintings’ – whereas Wendy Sharpe thinks that ‘if you did a survey of what artists really eat for lunch you’d often find it’s sliced tomato on toast.’ Nothing so simple for Luke Sciberras, who possesses a large plot of land in the old gold-mining town of Hill End with a lush vegetable garden out the front of two historic cottages. He believes that ‘cooking, gardening, and painting stimulate the same parts of the psyche’, and describes an incredibly complicated recipe using wild ducks he has harvested himself: stuffing them and roasting them then opening them up and filling them with ‘proper pancetta fat’, sealing them and then on a bed of white beans baking them for 20 hours in an Aga. He serves it with a sauce of fresh lavender flowers and concedes that it is all ’deliciously rich – too rich for Tim Storrier’. Jason Benjamin was a former chef and so it comes as little surprise that the recipes he contributes include Lasagne of Mud Crab, Avocado and Sauce Vierge and Roasted Truffled Spatchcock with Potato Gratin. He describes the relationship of food with art thus: ‘The difference is that cooking ends in enjoyment whereas painting

A brief history of salad Shred Potomac Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not as important as the discovery of fire or hallucinogenic mushrooms but salad must have made a distinct improvement to our ancestorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lives. Otherwise itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a monotonous diet â&#x20AC;&#x201C; badly burnt animal closely followed by another badly burnt animal. Sometime in that cycle, after the boys had deposited a dead gnu or whatever on the fire and gone off to boast about the size of their penises, one of the domestic handmaidens â&#x20AC;&#x201C; letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call her Grek â&#x20AC;&#x201C; must have said to another â&#x20AC;&#x201C; she can be Salp â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This meat thing is getting a bit boring, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you think? Hand me some of those plants over there.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; If Salp obliged and it had been choko, that would have been the end of the story and they wouldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone back to straight meat. So we can assume it was something a little more flavoursome, like a Paleolithic Lettuce, and Grek would have said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Not bad â&#x20AC;&#x201C; could do with a chilled Chianti, thoughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, to which Salp would have replied, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You and your newly-minted words. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be the death of me.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Which in this case turned out to be true when Grek caught Salp trying out a recently-invented front-on sexual position with Gog, who had promised fidelity to Grek for at least the rest of the week. Go forward a few thousand years and we discover the Babylonians hard at it, mixing oil and vinegar with their greens. The Greeks and the Romans, who claimed to invent civilisation but the Babylonians had it all over them, later took up the practice. Salads came into vogue again in 14th century England. The modern salad, a dish in itself involving a variety of ingredients, not one of

them choko, is said by some â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and we know where they live â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to date back to Salmagundi, a meat and salad dish which was a crowdpleaser in the 17th century. One edition of the Oxford Dictionary, probably dashed off by Frederick Furnivall before going out to found the Hammersmith Sculling Club, describes Salmagundi as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a dish composed of chopped meat, anchovies, eggs, onions with oil and condimentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The French word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;salmagondisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; means a hodgepodge, which is a small, furry animal often found in hedgerows. Incidentally, the Salmagundi Art Club was founded in Greenwich Village in 1871 and can be found online at www.

Byron Bay has been attracting tourists from all over the world for years and as we know many stay and settle. This season the Byron Bay Rams Premier League football squad has attracted gifted players from all over the planet to play what is called the world game. It’s still called soccer by many here in Australia and the US, however the rest of the world is passionate about “their” game called football. The Rams have just signed players from Singapore, Ireland, Brazil, Switzerland, New Zealand, United States, Trinidad and Tobago, and two brothers from Sudan in Africa. They’ve also been trialing a player from France and one from Spain. Head coach Peter Ware, himself originally from Scotland, believes it is fantastic to have such a diverse squad that has so much combined international experience. The new squad has been training together for over a month while the coaching staff have been doing selection trials. The local lads love playing with the ‘internationals’ – all involved

learn so much from each other’s different playing styles. With a few top-flight players going overseas or interstate in the off season to pursue careers in professional leagues and some other lads moving, Byron Bay FC took the decision to build their ranks with talented young players from the region and develop them to the highest level. ‘We did the same thing several years ago,’ says coach Ware. ‘We restructured the squad and had five exceptional lads aged only seventeen in the top grade premier team, then went on to win the championship!’ This season the club pushed hard to attract talented young age players from all over the far north coast and to become a centre of excellence for developing youth football. The word got out and a host of ex-representative and other talented young players from Lismore, Ballina, Alstonville, Lennox Head, Byron Bay, Bangalow, Ocean Shores and rural areas everywhere in between will now be playing for the Byron Rams.

‘We are looking to the future so this year we want our Premier League reserves team to be all aged under 21 if possible,’ says Peter. ‘I’m really happy with the new squad and we’ve been surprised with the huge array of emerging talent that we have found. It’s great to see them all pushing the envelope at training with regards to their skills development. There is a really enthusiastic vibe with everyone enjoying playing the best football they can amongst other young talented players. ‘I’m also pretty happy with the new patterns and combinations we’ve been working on and now we are just “tweaking” the younger lads’ mental and physical toughness in readiness for the pre-season Anzac Cup.’ In another new development for the Rams, the Premier League squad will enter in the Northern NSW FA knock out competition in the next few weeks. The Club is all abuzz with the way the new squad is shaping up so far and looking forward to a great season.

For those enjoying the Winter Olympic broadcast, the Byron Bay Film Festival has something to keep you chilled. Mount St Elias is a story about four very different characters – three of them men, one a mountain. A dramatic and awe-inspiring feature documentary following three of the world’s greatest ski mountaineers to Mount St Elias in their attempt to realize the longest ski descent of the world. Nominated for Best Film, Best Documentary and Best Cinematography this one will have you hanging on the edge of your seats. Set against the backdrop of Alaska’s dangerous beauty, Mount St. Elias is about a visionary borderline experience where unparalleled physical and mental pressure pushes the three to the absolute limit. The mountaineers find themselves in tight situations, in which heroism cannot easily be distinguished from folly.

Situations which can only be mastered if reason is abandoned and in which courage as well as trust in their abilities and – last but not least – luck are used as guidelines. The most recent attempt to descend this spectacular line with skies ended in tragedy in 2002. Two American skiers died. Their bodies remain on the mountain as a retrieve is technically impossible. A unique live feature which is brought to life by the inspiring storyline of Gerald Salmina in his very first motion picture. The absolutely authentic scenes in extreme situations get an almost bizarre effect due to the movie like editing. Spectacular and fascinating mountain pictures which have never been seen before turn it into a lasting and impressive adventure epic. Mount St Elias will screen at the BBF on Tuesday March 9 at 10am.

Tahnee wins Ironwoman at Blacksmith Beach Sport shorts The pinnacle event of surf sports, the Ironman, was staged on Sunday on Blacksmiths Beach, bringing to a close three days of tough state competition at the New South Wales Surf Life Saving Championship in the Hunter. With a tsunami warning in place along the NSW coastline, a number of precautions were taken by carnival organisers. The start of competition was delayed and organisers closed the water areas in the afternoon for a half hour period, however there was no noticeable change in water levels. Organisers and competitors were blessed with fair skies and moderate surf conditions for the carnival, which was staged over two successive weekends. The event attracted 8,000 athletes ranging in age from seven to seventy-six and representing 100 NSW surf life saving clubs from Bermagui in the south to Cudgen Headland in the north of the state.

won, writing herself into the Ironwoman history books once again with a wave to the beach at the end of the first leg on the board, then stretched the 20 metre gap to a 50 metre break during a power swim around the cans. With the crowd cheering, Flood cruised

to shore on the ski, smiling as her team mates splashed her on the shoreline before an easy run up the beach. Local Ironwoman Tahnee Fleming put in a great effort for the Byron Bay SLSC by winning the under 19 Ironwoman in front of a strong field.

This year’s state championship, the largest surf sports event in the country, was the last to be held at Swansea Belmont as part of a three year agreement. Next year’s championship will be staged at Cudgen Headland Surf Life Saving Club.

Bangalow junior rugby get best of both worlds Have you watched the Wallabies or Wallaroos playing rugby union and wanted to start playing rugby yourself? Rugby is a game that is played in over 120 countries throughout the world. Rugby is a great way to keep fit and become part of a community who share a common interest. The game is enjoyed by people of all ages and there is an opportunity for everyone to get involved through either playing, coaching or just supporting your local team.

Our local junior teams are a great way for kids to get involved in the sport – and for many juniors, joining a club presents a fantastic opportunity to see how the world’s champions players do their thing. The winners of both the northern and southern hemisphere rugby union tournaments in 2009 are coming to Australia in 2010 and the Bangalow Junior Rugby Club is planning to be there. Ireland, who won the

northern hemisphere 6 Nations Tournament, will be touring Australia in June. South Africa, who won the southern hemisphere Trinations Tournament, will be here in July. President of Bangalow Junior Rugby, David Phillips, said that the Club is planning to organise bus trips to watch the test matches in Brisbane. ‘The Australian Rugby Union makes cheap tickets available to junior rugby clubs, so we can offer discounted

seats to our players and their parents,’ says David. ‘We have run similar trips for the past two years and they are a highlight of the season, especially for some of the younger boys who may never have seen an international game. This year they’ll have the chance to see two of the best, from different ends of the world.’ Players wishing to join Bangalow Junior Rugby still have a chance to sign-on. For more information about playing, contact David Phillips on 0412 080 614.

Ocean Shores housing market strong O cean Shores is bucking a statewide trend to record increased home prices and sales volumes, a new report by PRDnationwide reveals. While most areas in New South Wales experience either a drop in sales or a drop in house prices, Ocean Shores is forging ahead, experiencing a 10.4% jump in prices and a whopping 56% spike in sales volumes. The report analysed the towns and villages of Ocean Shores, New

Property in focus page 58

Brighton, South Golden Beach and Brunswick Heads. PRDnationwide research analyst Josh Brown said the far north coast was an affordable hotspot. ‘The increase in activity occurred in the more affordable segments of the market, with a 15% increase in the $300,000 to $399,000 price bracket,’ he said. ‘This increase in the lower price bracket was driven by both investors and first home buyers who were enticed into the market by low interest rates, discounted values and the impending withdrawal of the First Home Buyers Boost.’ The median house price has increased by $57,000 between August and September 2009. ‘Ocean Shores can expect to see prices stabilise to a steady growth over the next 12 to 18 months,’ said Mr Brown. There were no sales for more than $1 million in the area during the period. The most expensive sale was for a property on Old Pacific Highway, Brunswick Heads, for $935,000. Mr Brown said the level of activity in the unit market has been fairly

steady since 2007, with an average of 23 transactions per six month period. ‘During the most recent six months, there has been a significant jump in activity to register 27 transactions – a 42% jump from the

September 2008 period.’ The median unit price now sits at $380,000 – a $32,500 spike. Of the 27 transactions, 17 were in Ocean Shores, with the cheapest being an apartment in Rajah Road for $140,000. There were once again limited va-

cant land sales with only 20 settled transactions during the half year. ‘These sales ranged in price from $172,500 for a 1500 square metre block in Ocean Shores to $350,000 for a 750 square metre block also in Ocean Shores,’ said Mr Brown.

Home affordability crashes Business Directory page 63

Open Houses, Auctions & New Listings page 63

Nationwide, housing affordability nose-dived at the end of 2009 due to the perfect storm of higher house prices, increased interest rates, and the winding-down of the first home buyers’ boost, according to the latest HIA-CBA First Home Buyer Affordability Report. Housing affordability tanked in the December 2009 quarter dropping by 18.4 per cent to be 22.3 per cent lower than 12 months ago. HIA Senior Economist Ben Phillips said prior to the December quarter, first home buyers had a small window of favourable afford-

ability conditions to enter the market. That window is now closing with affordability retreating to 2008 levels when interest rates were significantly higher. ‘Australia’s fast growing population is pushing new dwelling requirements to record high levels. Without the required new home building to keep up with underlying requirements house prices and rents are expected to continue pushing upwards through 2010,’ said Mr Phillips. HIA is forecasting a moderate housing recovery through 2010

with around 152,000 dwelling commencements, still well down on the 190,000 required by increases in the level of Australia’s population. ‘The necessary boost to housing supply is being held back by increased regulation, a slow and increasingly restricted building approvals process, and the same debilitating problems related to land supply, new home taxation, and skilled labour shortages that afflicted the industry last cycle,’ said Mr Phillips. the December quarter. The largAffordability deteriorated in all est falls were recorded in Sydney, capital cities and regional areas in Brisbane, Hobart, and Canberra.

The Byron Shire Echo March 2, 2010 63


Backlash Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing that the Byron Preservation Association sent out a media release claiming the subdivision at the former Epicentre site â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;appears to have been rendered worthless as a result of an apparent approval error by Byron Shire Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; without providing evidence to that effect. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more amazing is that the Byron News printed the claim without getting proof. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested in the claim too, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re waiting on the developer to tell us more. If Council has stuffed up, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a real doozy. QQQQ

There were some amusing moments in Council debate last week on a 52 unit development at Suffolk Park, though protesting residents didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the outcome they wanted. Cr Simon Richardson called for more space for clothes lines, but this was minuted as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;crowsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; until the error was pointed out. And given the history of flooding at the site, Cr Patrick Morrisey suggested provision for boats would be more useful than bike racks. QQQQ

Overall, though, if councillors want to encourage community involvement in local government, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going about it the wrong way. Discussion on the DA extended to over an hour when it could have been knocked over in 20 minutes. No wonder meetings go on for so long. QQQQ

And while the protesting folks on the 52 unit proposal had no joy, those against the proposed 40m high Optus tower off Bangalow Road got a good result â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Councillors refused it. QQQQ

Our apologies to David Gilet who was caught out when we printed the tides, sunrise and moonrise data for March in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paper. Unfortunately todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edition comes out on the second so if anyone

Near the third green on the Ocean Shores golf course. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Most people were quite oblivious of the life and death battle taking place between the snake and fruit bat,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; notes our observant naturalist. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In fact, the snakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s camouflage was so good it was very difficult to see. Once the snake had devoured the bat, it crawled along the fenceline and up into the overhanging trees â&#x20AC;&#x201C; almost impossible to see unless you knew it was there.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; If you were confronted by this situation, what would you do? Chip over the critters with a 7 iron, or regard them as loose impediments and move them to one side? Photo Jan Racine

had needed to know yesterdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s times the February chart would have been of no use. We suggest that any readers who find our tide chart useful, cut out the new one and stick it on the fridge at the start of the month for easy reference. QQQQ

In an innovative effort to save endangered quolls from extinction, University of Sydney biological scientist Stephanie Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell is feeding them poisonous cane toad sausages. The sausages, made from minced cane toad legs, are laced with a chemical designed to make the quolls feel sick. After their unpleasant experience with the sausages, quolls are likely to avoid eating poisonous cane toads in the wild. Research has suggested that a quarter of quolls will avoid eating a cane toad if they have sampled one of these sausages. And quoll backyard barbies are definitely a thing of the past.
