Council concerned by coastal protection bill Michael McDonald

Byron Shire Councillors voted last Thursday at an extraordinary meeting to leave a submission on the NSW government draft coastal protection bill in staff hands. The draft bill was announced at the end of March by environment minister Frank Sartor and reported in last week’s Echo. The submission deadline is April 12. In a briefing to councillors, staff raised a number of concerns with the bill. Cr Tom Tabart told The Echo, ‘It appears to be a desperate and badly thought-out attempt to get this isssue off the State agenda until, at least, the next election. As usual local government is the patsy.’ Staff told councillors the draft bill failed ‘to address the potential jurisdiction issues arising from the interaction between Marine Park Authority (in the case of Byron Bay and other NSW areas), Crown Lands, Council boundaries, mean high water mark/s Elizabeth Chi-Wei Sun from Gogol Bordello sings up a Gypsy punk storm.

impacted by even sand nourishment and geobag work… Many of these species are threatened or endangered species pursuant to the Threatened Species Conservation Act (NSW) and/or Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act (Cth).’ No development for coastal protection works of any type should be permitted without an assessment of the environmental impacts… ‘A policy which infers that works can be undertaken without the need to obtain consent, when the carrying out of those works could amount to offences… under other legislation is irresponsible and capable of misleading ordinary members of the public.

Little consultation Staff also saw the proposed policies as ‘a significant shift in direction by the State government with little or no consultation with NSW councils who have invested many years, considerable resources and significant amounts of money following the previous direction mandated by the State government, ie preparation of a Coastal Zone Management Plan through a structured, ordered process…’ As to the looming submission deadline, ‘The limited period of consultation has prevented most councils from giving any detailed consideration to the proposed policies/legislation or from seeking legal advice on potential implications etc. Reasonable and adequate consultation should occur not only with Councils but also with other industry and scientific sectors.’ The staff submission is likely to request deferral of the bill to provide for more time for consultation. It will also request reinstatement of the NSW Coastal Council ‘to provide the State Government with independent scientific information to inform the decisions that need to be made in relation to the proposed legislation and the overall policy issue which is of such significance to NSW now and for the future’.

The Fletcher Street Cottage for the Byron Bay homeless officially flung open its doors just before Easter. Established by the Byron Bay Community and Cultural Centre, the facility is the outcome of a tireless and enthusiastic team effort by various groups and individuals within the community. Smartly painted in its original colours of cream with pale green trim â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a fantastic makeover!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Paul Spooner told The Echo â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the old wooden building has been transformed into a series of comfortable and welcoming rooms in which throughout the week those without a home can come and relax, cook and eat together and do their laundry. Cosy couches, library and sound system, a communal room of tables and chairs, spacious kitchen with coffee machine, roomy office and laundry â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all needs have been considered. In the words of St Vincent de Paul coordinator Ian Leggo, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We asked the homeless what they wanted, then we tried to give it to them. The Salvation Army invested a lot... without them this wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have happened.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; General Manager of the Byron Community Centre Paul Spooner opened the event, apologising for the non-attendance of Member for Richmond Justine Elliot, Member for Ballina Don Page and Greens MP Ian Cohen. He then handed over to Delta Kay of the Arakwal Corporation who told the crowd that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I popped in here last week for a quick cuppa and my jaw just dropped at all the work done â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have because we know what sort of community it is!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Precisely what sort was re-

Tweed Street feedback sought The community has until April 15 to submit feedback on the proposed new look design for Tweed Street in Brunswick Heads. Byron Shire Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traffic and transport planner Simon Bennett said the draft Tweed Street Master Plan includes proposed plans for traffic management and streetscaping. He said some of the proposed key design ideas included the retention of the nature strip, introduction of a tree-lined median strip, small art and historical installations, seating plus wider, shaded pathways for walking, cycling and motorised scooters. Roundabouts

at intersections with Fingal Street and Mullumbimbi Street have also been identified. The project website is www. byron.nsw.gov.au/projects/ tweed-street. Copies of the draft master plan and a storyboard consultation process are available at Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s community access points across the Shire. In addition, the draft plan is available at Brunswick Heads Visitor Centre (on Park Street), Brunswick Heads Library (on Fingal Street), Bowls Club (on the Old Pacific Highway) and Hotel (on Mullumbimbi Street). More details are also available on 6626 7080.

Good egg stages an Easter surprise Story & photo Eve Jeffery

Main Beach Byron visitors got the gift of a lifetime when they arrived to meet the rising dawn on Sunday. Byron Bay’s own Easter Bunny had delivered in the dark a cache of 19 large solid timber eggs for those who so chose to take one home. On further investigation, it turns out that the fluffy fellow is actually local artist Timothy Field who was struck by a vision last Autumn. Tim was the recipient of a gift in May when a whole tree destined for the tip landed on his doorstep in Byron Bay. A painter by nature and a pensive man, Tim says that being an artist gives him a chance to think about life then express that as art. ‘I had a clear vision during an afternoon snooze to create eggs from the gifted wood which is a swamp mahogany that had fallen in a storm.’ Tim used a chainsaw to create the basic ovate shape and stored the pieces above his garage to dry until the end of summer. ‘The eggs dried and cracked,’ says Tim. ‘This

created the opportunity for me to fill the knotholes and cracks with a resin that I coloured.’ Tim then used an arbitec blade on a grinder and finally sandpaper to finish the

unique pieces of art. The largest of the eggs weighs about 20 kilos and the smallest about two. Tim says the irregularity of the shapes and the fact that the wood is not completely

seasoned adds to the attraction for him. ‘Some of the eggs may continue to crack – some might even open and who knows what could come out.’ One of the eggs literally does have a surprise inside. Tim has kept one of the pieces for an exhibition he is having in a few weeks and he said he slipped something precious into a knothole running through the egg before he plugged it up. ‘Who knows, in 450 years it may just crack open and someone will get a surprise.’ Tim believes the eggs are on a journey and for this reason he simply gave them away. ‘We are often on a path to get things and have things. I want to try and express life as a gift rather than a gain. These eggs are just born and they will now continue on with their life.’ If you found one of Tim’s eggs you can give it some lovin’ with a bit of oil. You will have the chance to tell him how your egg’s journey is going at an exhibition of his work held in six weeks’ time in conjunction with Zackay Glass Creations – see more at www. zakayglasscreations.com.

Judge throws money at the arts Victoria Cosford

NSW Arts Minister Virginia Judge made a quick visit to Byron Bay to announce a $10,000 funding boost for the Byron Bay Community Association to help stage its 2010 theatre program The Byron Bay Community Association owns and manages the Byron Bay Community and Cultural Centre which houses a 246-seat theatre. Newly formed independent company Ripe Theatre, run by Mouche Phillips, has taken up residency within the Community Centre to collaborate on the 2010 performing arts program. The funding will be of enormous benefit toward the co-production of up to six shows this year. In the dimly lit theatre the Minister made a short speech before handing over a giant cheque to general manager of the Community Centre Paul Spooner and Mouche Phillips. She referred to her recent visit to Byron Bay in order to present a similar cheque towards the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new library and to open the Byron Bay International Film Festival (BBFF), saying how impressed she had been by â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the professionalism and dedication to providing firstclass events in this region.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The funding, she continued, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;is to increase the work theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all doing.

This place has the energy and the vibe and if a grant can help that then all the better. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My focus is on nourishing Australian content and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very keen to support organisations such as this. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about supporting the local community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this region has such a wealth of creative and artistic people. The funding will give artists and performers a chance to share their talents with the wider community.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; In 2010, audiences will also

be able to enjoy productions from the Sydney Theatre Company and Adelaide Festival, childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shows, surfing films, music shows, an Aboriginal Short Film Showcase and works from NORPA. Paul Spooner said that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the grant from Arts NSW is a significant acknowledgement of the potential for the development of artistic cultural experiences for Byron Bay. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The modern amphitheatre style theatre is ideal for music, dance, film and theatrical

shows and to reflect the quality of the venue and the events it is being renamed the Byron Theatre.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Before she dashed off to present another cheque out at the Blues Festival ($12,000 to support three new emerging indigenous artists), the Minister, a highly trained pianist, briefly entertained the small crowd with some improvised pieces on the Steinway.

Arts partnership celebrated Minister Judge also met with representatives of the seven local governments who make up the members of Arts Northern Rivers at a dinner function at the Northern Rivers Community Gallery in Ballina. The function was organised to celebrate the successful and enduring partnership, and to announce a change of leadership for Arts Northern Rivers with a change of Chair of the Arts Northern Rivers Board, following the organisationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s AGM today, and the departure of founding CEO Lois Randall.

Ballina councillor Phillip Silver announced he would step down from the position of Chair of the Arts Northern Rivers board. Ballina councillor Meehan was elected as the new Chair. Cr Philip Silver said he is proud of Arts Northern Rivers and the organisationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s achievements. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It is a great example of a strong working partnership between the seven local councils of the region, with state and federal government, working together to support

regional programs.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Founding CEO Lois Randall said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The organisation has played a key role in delivering millions of dollars in arts funding to the Northern Rivers and delivered substantial enduring outcomes including the Visual Arts Network project, a strong Indigenous Arts Program, establishment of the 3 Rivers Aboriginal Arts Space in Lismore, a regional Museums development program, and development of the first regional Creative Industries Strategy in NSW.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

The annual Bangalow Billy Cart Derby will be held on Sunday May 16, with Bangalow’s main street transformed into a race track for all ages. It is, according to organiser Tony Heeson, ‘the famous, the great, the best loved event on the north coast’ – and with an anticipated crowd of 10,000 people and a $1,000 prize to

the winning school, it is easy to see why. The Schools Billy Cart Challenge Race is probably the only schools’ challenge race ever to be held in Australia, running as a separate race entry where schools compete against other schools. The event has the support of the NSW Police Department, NRMA, youth services,

local community groups and Council. The Grand Parade around midday includes community, sporting and other groups and will feature live entertainment, pony clubs and scouts, vintage cars and fire brigades. Everyone is invited to participate in this not-for-profit community event and all pro-

ceeds go to local charities. It’s an opportunity to build your own cart and promote your business or group – but above all to have fun. Get all the details of how to enter at www.bangalowbillycart.com.au or contact Tony Heeson on 6687 2580, after hours 6688 4236 or 0419 715 098.

Open house for Youth Homelessness Matters Day According to the Byron Bay Youth House (BBYH), ‘youth homelessness is unseen. We often hear the reference to “street kids” but in fact most homeless young people are invisible to

us. Many young people presenting to specialist homeless organisations like the BBYH have been “couch surfing” and living in other unstable situations. ‘This generally means that they are temporarily staying with friends, relatives and sometimes with complete strangers. These young people will often be sleeping on couches or on the floors of these people’s houses until they outstay their welcome and move on to the next place. ‘There were 44,547 children and young people aged 0-25 years old who were homeless on census night 2006 – 43 per cent of all homeless people are children and young people under 25 years old. There are a variety of reasons why children and young people become homeless that are often outside of the control of the young person. ‘The general public often

has a view that young homeless people are runaways and could really return home if they wanted to. In reality many young people become homeless due to family breakdown, family violence and child abuse.’ Youth Homeless Matters Day is Wednesday April 14 and the theme for 2010 is ‘Countdown – Everyone Counts’. The theme links to the Homelessness Australia campaign of ‘Will you be homeless in 2020? and aims to highlight the Australian government’s current commitment to reduce homelessness by half in 20/20 as identified in ‘The Road Home: A National Approach to Reducing Homelessness’. The Byron Bay Youth House has been a part of the Northern Rivers community for over 25 years specialising in supporting young people who are homeless or at risk. On Youth Homelessness Matters Day Wednesday BBYH will be

Tursa Employment & Training

holding an open house morning tea between 10.30am and 12.30pm. ‘Our aim is to dispel negative perceptions in regards to youth refuges and to raise awareness in our community about how we can all facilitate together in reducing youth homelessness. ‘There are many ways that the general community can assist the youth house from volunteer caretaking, joining our management committee, donation of goods and financial contributions. We will be providing information, presentations including young people’s stories, guided tours, entertainment and good food.’ If you would like to be a part of Youth Homelessness Matters Day please RSVP by Friday April 9 or if you would like to support the Youth House please contact Angela Ward bbyhcoordinator@linknet. com.au or 6685 7264.

New farmers market ready to roll Story & photo Eve Jeffery

Deborah Fuller gave up a 20 year career working for Sydneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big guns as a business analyst, bravely throwing it all away, including the good salary, to search of a profession with more meaning. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always loved food and volunteered to help set up the farmers market at New Brighton. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m now in the process of setting up another one in Murwillumbah. I believe that as we face the challenges of climate change and stresses on the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural resources we as a community need to become more self sufficient and sustainable.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It is people like Deb who make up the modern resurgence in the farmers market. Along with about 55 other stallholders, Deb will be part of the inaugural Mullumbimby Farmers Market to be held at the Showgrounds this Friday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; under the shade of large fig trees at the back of the grounds. Organiser Judy McDonald is very excited about the new market. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This market has been designed to provide more opportunities for local small food businesses as well as farmers and will have a broader local food and dining focus. There be the usual fresh fruit, vegetables, farm eggs, macas and coffee all local and fresh from the farm. Ian Cameron, a small crop farmer from The Pocket specialises in salad mixes and

grows some unusual vegetables such as purple snake beans in season [the seeds originally coming from the local Seed Savers network].â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Judy says there will also be plenty to make the mouth water with three local cheese-makers, two pasta makers, three meat stalls (beef and organic pork) and two bread-makers. There will also be homemade yummies like fresh curry pastes, kasundis, chutneys, pickles and relishes, jams and inventive north coast confections to try out as well as spice and lentil mixes. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;One of my favourites is the handmade in Mullum ravioli,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

says Judy. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;They are filled with sweet potato and macadamia nuts and I am really looking forward to the spicy Moroccan flat breads that will be cooked on site.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Livestock will be an added feature to the Friday event. You will be able to buy heritage chooks and ducks for your backyard and even guinea pigs. Lindsay Murray from Myocum will be selling heritage variety breeds like Plymouth Rock and White Sussex. Boomerang Farm from Corndale will be bringing Naked Neck Transylvanian chooks and organic farmer Silas Long from Blessed Bananas will be selling

ducks and guinea pigs. The official opening will be at 9am on Friday with Deputy Mayor Basil Cameron. A troupe from Spaghetti Circus will be performing. There will be two market produce hampers to be won: shoppers will receive a free entry entry ticket from each stall they shop from. For more information about the market, phone 6684 5390 or email mullummarket@ gmail.com.

Brunswick skate park to open at last After ten years of planning and waiting, the youth of Brunswick Heads now have their skate park. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a long collaborative effort since 2000, between the youth, community, theSk8Brunswick Taskforce, (a subcommittee of the Brunswick Heads Chamber of Commerce), the designer David Clancy, and the Byron Shire Council. The skate park will open on Sunday April 18, which is at the end of Youth Week. Any young

people who would like to assist with the music selection for the day, or can assist in any other way with the program or logistics should contact Pete at the Surf Shop this week. The program will kick off at 11am with an official opening followed by demonstrations by three professional skaters. Then there will be a few 15 minute â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Expression Sessionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, where times will be allocated for specific sections. Peligucci is donating a Cliche skateboard

valued at $180 for the raffle which will be drawn about 2pm. The funds will go towards shade cloth at the southern end of the skate park. Mullumbimby/Brunswick Rotary will run a fundraising BBQ, serving hearty fuel food for the skaters and the spectators. The Juices2U van will be there to quench thirsts. All those who have played a role in making the skate park dream come true are invited to attend and celebrate the occasion.

A heartfelt paddle from authors The Brunswick River and Simpsons Creek have been named as two of the best places in the state to go kayaking in a new book called Paddling around New South Wales. The authors, Scott Rawstorne from East Ballina and Geoff Greenwood from Sydney, discovered these places in late 2008 as part of their epic ‘40 paddles in 40 days’ in which they explored the state’s most varied and beautiful waterways. They also raised muchneeded funds for Heartfelt House (www.heartfelthouse. org.au), a non profit organisation based on the north coast that provides support for adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse. Paddling around New South Wales will be launched on Sunday April 11 in conjunction with a Northern Rivers Paddlers (www.nrpaddlers. blogspot.com) trip around Ballina Island. Scott and Geoff will be at the beach on the Richmond River just east of the water slides and sailing club at 9.30am, and will start paddling at 10am. The book will be for sale with

Scott on hand to sign copies. Five dollars will be donated to Heartfelt House for every book purchased at the launch. Scott and Geoff believe that recreational kayaking provides a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in amazing environments without disturbing them or leaving any

trace of your visit. ‘This book is for everyone who knows the joy of floating quietly into nature, and for anyone who has ever dreamed of picking up a paddle,’ they say. In order to help protect the waterways of NSW, Scott and Geoff have also decided to contribute ten per cent of the

purchase price of every book sold through their website www.escapology.com.au to worthy environmental protection or conservation projects. If you believe that you know of a cause that might fit the bill, please get in touch with them via paddle@escapology. com.au.

Wild dogs remain a harrowing problem Eve Jeffery

Residents of the Northern Rivers are concerned about wild dogs and with good reason. Each year canids are responsible for untold amounts of traumatic and violent decimation of livestock and on occasion, attacks on domestic pets. The Livestock Health and Pest Authority (LHPA) is a body whose aim is to deliver a frontline livestock health service in NSW – working with landholders to safeguard agricultural production from the biosecurity risks posed by disease and pests, including wild dogs. According to the LHPA, a wild dog is a dingo, a halfbreed dingo or a domestic dog that has gone wild. On Tuesday last week the LHPA held a meeting in Mullumbimby to discuss the pro-

gram for solving the problem – the major solution, baiting with 1080. Compound 1080 or sodium monofluoroacetate, is a naturally occurring compound produced by many species of Australian plant. Dogs are more susceptibile to the effects of 1080 than anything else, the lethal dose per kilo of body weight for a dog is 0.06mg. A a relative measure shows that there is 0.4mg needed to kill a rabbit, 2mg is needed for a human and 3.7mg per kilo for an Eastern Quoll. For this reason, it is the current most effective method of dealing with the wild dog problem and very few, if any, would argue the necessity for the eradication of this pest, but the question for some at the meeting was the cruel nature of the wild animal’s death.

The 1080 poison takes about three hours to take effect and then the animal basically suffocates internally on a cellular level. Anecdotal evidence is contrary to the common belief that ‘the animal doesn’t feel anything.’ One resident at Tuesday’s meeting was very distressed by the suffering and damage caused by wild dogs on her property. ‘All our wallabies seem to have been eaten. We have actually seen them being chased by large wild dogs through our house gardens. ‘Our koala population no longer calls at night, which is filled with dogs regularly yowling around the house and surrounding forest.’ But the woman was also distressed by the current remedy. ‘I have seen two domestic dogs die of 1080 poisoning and it

was horrendous to say the least. Fitting, copious salivation, disorientation and eventual suffocation from the strychnine type poison after about six hours. The LHPA said at the meeting that dogs do not suffer too much and die quickly. This is not my experience.’ It is clear that there is a problem in this area and it needs to be addressed with haste, but one would hope that research is going into a humane solution. A properly administered bullet is the best way to dispose of these animals but that has obvious problems in our area – human safety, licensing, catching the dogs in the act of savaging stock and successfully tracking dogs. For more information about dealing with wild dogs visit the LHPA website www.lhpa.org. au.

Ric’s Zkimmer now with added zoom for the web Hans Lovejoy

In order to compete in the digital age, print publishing companies are required to reproduce their content online. With less revenue potential and often free, newspapers and magazines have not neccessarily benefited from the advantages that this new medium has to offer. Local inventor Ric Richardson, however, has developed an internet technology allowing users to view an entire print edition online, as it was printed, and independent of browser platform. This is good

news for publishers daunted by the expense and technological complexity when transferring print material to the web. ‘It gives users the ability to look at the whole document, navigate to a specific page number or to navigate from page to page in single or double page spread mode,’ says Ric. His company Zkimmer utilises Google maps technology which means a user can zoom in and out of a page or edition. Like Google maps, it renders high resolution images and text on the fly. Ric is a familiar face to the area; last year he was featured

<echowebsection=Local News>

on ABC TV’s Australian Story, which profiled his David and Goliath legal battle with Microsoft. His talents as an inventor and entrepreneur have not gone unnoticed however, and his many inventions, whether in software, musical or surfing have made contributions worldwide. As the technology stands, a website developer would need to integrate any current site with zkimmer. Ric says however that it is being sold ‘sold lock stock and barrel’, and will be up to the purchaser how they implement it. ‘The sale will involve the

handover of all software and the assignment of patents,’ Ric says. ‘It is a multi million dollar deal.’ According to Ric, a 70 page newspaper takes about one hour to rip. ‘The process is well known in mapping circles as it is the same way satellite imagery is ripped to make Google map tiles. Its pretty fast and reliable.’ As a showcase for the cutting edge technology, Ric has kindly offerd The Echo a taste of how this technology works.

But whatever the cause, we know from the 2001 experience that the issue is a hot one, and that it would not take much to revive it in an election year. Admittedly, Rudd has done his best to take at least some of the heat out of it. Where

The vast majority of asylum seekers arrive by air, and in any case constitute less than one tenth of one per cent of Australia’s annual immigration. by Mungo MacCallum And we know they can be relied on. It is still not clear what causes the atavistic fear of boat people in the Australian psyche. It is demonstrably irrational; the vast majority of asylum seekers arrive by air, and in any case constitute less than one tenth of one per cent of Australia’s annual immigration. Yet somehow the boat people are supposed to represent a threat not only to our borders, but to our national security. Kevin Rudd has in fact unleashed the resources of ASIO against these leaky vessels carrying insignificant numbers of the desperate and destitute into our waters. So why the paranoia? My own theory is that it has to do with residual guilt. The original settlers arrived by boat, and from 1788 the trickle became a flood. Resistance was offered, but it was too little and too late: the Australian nation – in fact a great many Australian nations – were overwhelmed, their way of life destroyed and their people killed, expelled from their lands and marginalised. It has

under-resourced and overworked councils who bear the brunt of landowner anger. The staff and some councillors seem to think the consultation period is rushed. Don’t they understand there is a state election in the wind and the incumbent Labor government needs to look like it’s doing something? – Michael McDonald, editor

Howard and his ministers like the vampiric Phillip Ruddock talked of the asylum seekers as queue jumpers, illegals, disease carriers, drug pedlars, potential terrorists and eventually child murderers, not the sort of people you would want in this country unless they were permanently confined behind razor wire, Rudd has urged compassion; his words and actions have been humane with the closure of the hell holes of Nauru and Manus Island, the abolition of the psychological torture of Temporary Protection Visas and the relatively speedy processing of claims. But, unwilling to appear soft on border protection, he has gone over the top about people smugglers, ‘the scum of the earth who should burn in hell forever’. They may not all be in the mould of one of his own heroes, the anti-Nazi people smuggler Dietrich Bonhoeffer, but they are still providing a service the asylum seekers desire and use. To demonise them in such extravagant fash-

ion is reminiscent of the way the Victorians used to persecute prostitutes while turning a sympathetic, or at least blind, eye to their clients. But, as the quotation at the start of this piece demonstrates, Rudd and his advisers have clearly decided that he needs to counter Abbott’s bloodthirsty rhetoric with some of his own. There is a better way, and surprisingly it was most recently articulated by a normally conservative commentator, Peter van Onselen in the Weekend Australian. Van Onselen took the high ground in his appeal for calm: ‘I find it disappointingly inconsistent that both our political leaders, Rudd and Tony Abbott, wear their religion on their sleeves yet neither of them practises the compassion that Christianity extols when it comes to boat people.’ He acknowledges that at least some of Rudd’s actions have been compassionate but accuses Abbott of ‘applying the rhetoric of former Labor powerbroker Graham Richardson to asylum seekers when he says that he will do whatever it takes to stop illegal boat arrivals’. Instead, he should pay more heed to the traditions of his Jesuit teachers, and embrace the concept of ‘compassionate conservatism’. After all many of the asylum seekers who have been accepted have become successful small businessmen, a core Liberal Party constituency. Van Onselen concludes: ‘Australians shouldn’t be afraid of boat people trying to come to our country. Our geographical position means that their numbers will always be small compared with refugee migration to other parts of the world. It’s time our politicians started to lead public opinion on this issue rather than following it.’ Hear, hear!

The extra people we must have? Do you really want 36 million people in this country? Now the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;emergencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; powers brought in so the NSW state government could override council planning laws are to be made permanent. More and more statements are coming from all governments about how many new houses must be built, and all environmental or social restrictions must be abandoned so more houses can be built. Why? To house the extra people. The extra people we

must have. To provide the workers we need to build the economy to create jobs. What?! We need more workers because we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough workers but the workers are supposed to create jobs so we need more workers andâ&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all the same lie as usual. We borrow $250 billion dollars a year to spend on housing. The big development companies build big estates. The big banks give them the money. The big builders bribe/donate

to the big political parties. All of this is stealing our mining income. We subsidise forestry, we subsidise coal, we subsidise corporate farming: our economy is largely corrupt, in market terms. To keep their shady game going, they must import more people, increase debt, and reduce your standard of living. Less space everywhere. Double the numbers of trucks on the road within ten years according to the NRMA. We have the

biggest new houses (on ever smaller blocks), the highest per capita pollution, the most obese people, and higher population growth than India, the Philippines, Vietnam â&#x20AC;&#x201C; twice global growth. We are the problem. Do you really like this? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re paying for it. If you do, vote Labor, Liberal, or Nationals, ie business as usual. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;tâ&#x20AC;Ś.

User pays?

ers are distinct activities which have to operate as a business, such as water and sewer. Many others are only used by select user groups and it would be helpful for staff to know the views of current Councillors to help staff manage these activities according to clear policy direction. For example, another motion I put up for a workshop to look at ways to make the Ewingsdale Sports Fields project break even rather than the forecast $200,000 annual operating loss, was not something seven Councillors wanted to even consider! We should ask them why. So while most Councillors donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to turn their mind to clarifying some basic policy positions, nor look at ways of making very expensive projects at least break even, senior management are keen to pursue such a conversation. So watch this space.

munity of yet another development application submitted by the Davis family in Main Arm hamlet. This supposedly new DA is essentially the same as the previous DA and in fact the one before that. There are the same number of lots proposed for both village and rural CT developments, the same waste water and sewerage issues, the same environmental issues, the same lack of commitment to improve roads and infrastructure. MARA has consistently opposed the scale and impact that this, and the proposed ReGenesis development, will have on our community, our amenity and on the fragile environment of the Main Arm valley. We have consistently opposed Community Title (CT) developments as inappropriate for rural settings. We have consistently stated that any development that takes place in the Main Arm adheres to state and local LEP and BRSS guidelines. This development does not. We also consider that the additional time required by Council staff to review and

evaluate a third DA with no real differences as a waste of ratepayersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; money. A copy of the latest DA is now at the Main Arm Store for people to review and we hope it will be up on Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website in full soon. There is also a copy at Council chambers for public viewing. If you wish to write a submission, and we encourage you to do so as numbers are important, you have until April 14.

Given Council is reviewing rates, fees and charges (Echo editorial, March 30) and progressing new projects in the context of constrained revenue growth with increases in capital and operational costs and growing community expectations, I was surprised to see none of my colleagues supported my motion for a timely review to determine which Council services and activities should operate at a loss, break even or operate at a profit. Council activities and services include water, sewer, waste, depot and fleet management, laboratory, planning, children, youth, welfare, sporting fields, libraries, swimming pools, tennis courts, air field, cemeteries, markets, beach scraping, halls, quarries and caravan parks, cleaning up after tourists, not to forget roads, bridges, bikeways, causeways and drains, to name a few. They all need to fall into one of these categories. Some clearly are services most people use for which ratepayers pay, such as roads and drains and are not designed to run at a profit. Oth-

Woolworths, government and consequent frustrations Q I thought that it would be of interest to residents of Mullumbimby and surrounds to review the history that has now ended up with Woolworths gaining approval to build a large supermarket in the town. The process seems to have involved deception and a total lack of flexibility in the government approval process. This has resulted in a development being approved for which a majority in the community do not want. The first significant matter was when Mallams advised Council that access for semitrailers supplying goods to

its existing supermarket were unsatisfactory and unsafe. Negotiations were held with Council to find a solution to this problem. This included redeveloping the existing site and looking at new sites. It was the Council of the day that identified the site in Station Street. Mallams then prepared a DA for this site which involved a 2500sqm floor area supermarket. A new Council was elected and this rejected the proposal. In order to get the community to support the development, Mallams said that, if the community did not support the proposal, someone else might

take over. The community gave its support although most were unaware of the size of the proposed supermarket. Mallams became impatient with Council continuing to block the project and went direct to State government and we know what has happened since then. Could it have been that Mallams always intended to onsell the approval to develop the new site? If this had been known to the community, it would never have given its support to the Mallam’s DA and the consent might not have been forthcoming from the state government. It is ironical that a problem with semitrailer access turned into a large new supermarket on an unsuitable site. With this question mark hanging over the process and the fact that residents are more aware now of the negative impact of large supermarkets on small towns, it has been very continued from page 11

Soon we’ll have no-one but giant North American companies who don’t provide Australians with jobs, who are pushing to suck every last dollar out of you through the promise of ‘cheaper prices’ and are forcing out music DVD and bookstores from our towns because they can’t compete with high rents, rising costs that can’t be passed on because ‘we can get it from Amazon cheaper’ (although did you add in shipping and did you really get what you wanted?) but all we can focus on here is Woolworths. When all the cool businesses in Mullum are gone because we have sold our souls to internet retailers who are from every country but Australia and all the local charm and jobs are gone, you can still thank Amazon and eBay for their low impersonal prices. And one final thought for the environmentally conscious, how big a carbon footprint f

frustrating to find that the planning processes of state government are so inflexible that an approval granted cannot be reviewed when more evidence comes to light. It now seems impossible to stop the development or have its size reduced to minimise the negative impact on the town.

mulated over the last 25 years (ABC World Today). I am not saying that Woolworths is responsible for the national debt, nor for our taste for imported cheap goods. However protective tariffs and regulations have been scrapped to allow unfettered globalisation because of pressure from corporations more powerful than governments. Our only saving grace is our freedom of choice to support whom we believe deserves our support. Since women do most grocery shopping, they hold the power in that sector. To add to local frustration, Woolworths is currently disputing their s94 developer contributions to Byron Shire Council for the roadworks, pavements and new concrete roundabout which will have to be built to service their big box.

Council accountability I would like to highlight the difference between Council policy which Council management is supposed to implement to protect our environment and actual management practice. I know questions have been asked by concerned community bodies seeking clarification as to where the monies allocated for what should be normal specific Shire infrastructure maintenance. The buck stops for the nonimplementation of budgeted items, not with the councillors, but with the general manager and directors totally. I read recently the Director of Water and Recycling, Phil Warner, stated that the pump stations were almost completed on the Brunswick Valley Sewerage Augmentation and that Valances road STP would be finished by 2011. He also stated that this STP would serve the community until 2025. In 2006 a report was supplied to the Brunswick Wastewater Steering Committee which stated categorically that if gravity mains infiltration was not cor-

rected that this would have an adverse effect on the new plant within seven years. Phil Warner stated at a meeting convened at Mr Malcolm Murray’s residence (the then chairman of the Brunswick Wastewater Steering Committee) an engineer in his department submitted a report which said the major contributor to the infiltration of the Mullumbimby gravity mains system was faulty household connections. Phil Warner supported this finding. As a previous sewer operator for Byron Council I saw the result of substantial rainfall on the gravity mains system in Mullumbimby on many occasions. I observed that once the rainfall had ceased it took the sewer pump stations up to a week of continuous running to remove the infiltration out of the system and get back to normal running hours. This clearly showed the infiltration could not be blamed on household connections because the infiltration should have

ceased rapidly once the rainfall ceased. This indicates that the infiltration is deep in the gravity mains system. Is Phil Warner now saying that the infiltration of the gravity mains system in Mullumbimby has been corrected so that the Valances Road STP will not be adversely affected before 2025? Councillors need to be aware that if they are supplied with data to say that this has been achieved I urge them to ensure that this information is accurate or the community will be entitled to ask why have they been slugged with approximately a $26 million dollar bill for an STP which will be hydraulically overloaded within seven years. The problem with the Council accountability of management is most if not all of the persons responsible for making these decisions will more than likely have moved on before the seven year period is reached.

of cleaning the mess up as we arrived and who knows how many binloads had already been removed. Surely something can be done to educate our visitors that this is not acceptable behaviour in an area that was once noted for its environmental activism and pris-

tine environment. I have seen too many people lately along the shorelines admiring our incredible sunsets while throwing cigarette butts into the water. We know too much about the damage pollution causes to do nothing about it. While I have no problem with people enjoy-

ing the beaches, partying on the beaches and even camping on the beaches, this has to be done responsibly so as not so impact on the beautiful natural environment we are so lucky to live in.

Solar hot water – choosing the best system Adrian Gattenhof

Solar hot water systems have been around since the 1960s. Until recently they came in just one type: the solar-collector panels on the roof with the tank just above it. Pipes connect the heating panels to the tank and the sun does the rest; heating the water and ‘pump-

ing’ it automatically into the tank. This is the traditional ‘Solahart’ system, generically called ‘passive’ systems. But now some manufacturers are promoting systems with the tank on the ground. Rarely a roof may need strengthening to take the tank, but generally they cope easily. The main driver of these systems seems

to be a perception that the roof tank spoils the ‘look’ of the roof. So these ‘split’ or ‘active’ systems have been developed to appeal to people who have rejected solar hot water on aesthetic grounds. In my experience, locating the tank below the heating panels makes about as much sense as putting corners on a wheel.

Passive systems take advantage of the natural thermosiphon effect. When water is heated it expands, rises and draws in cold water from below to replace it. It’s a powerful force and drives the great ocean currents. The thermosiphon created by the sun heating the collector panels pumps the heated water into the tank. No

mechanical pumps, no moving parts and no gadgets needed. Solar power does it all. Passive systems only use electricity or gas in cloudy weather. In recent years they have been refined to use highefficiency, heat-exchanging fluids in the panels and stainless steel tanks. With an override switch to minimise boosting they provide the cheapest hot water by far. They can operate almost maintenance free for decades and represent green technology at its peak. Separating the panels from the tank makes a dramatic change to the way the system works. Once the tank is placed lower than the solar panels the thermosiphon that pumped the hot water into the tank for free is destroyed. This now has to be done by an electric pump. The heated water has to be forced into the tank against the thermosiphon effect, against the natural direction of flow. Split systems make solar hot water complicated, needlessly expensive, problem prone and much less efficient. Apart from the pump they also need sensors to read the temperature in the tank and in the roof panels to instruct the pump when to operate, a nonreturn (or one-way) valve to prevent thermosiphoning and an electronic control system. All this means unnecessary capital and operating expenses, plus a lot of components to fail – which they do. Once the hot water is in the

tank, it wants to escape and thermosiphon up to the roof panels – especially at night when the panels cool. Hence the non-return valve to stop this reverse flow. But when the valve fails – a recent writer to ReNew magazine had three such failures – the hot water flows up into the panels and sheds its heat into the night. Next morning you have a tank of cold water. Or worse, the electric booster cuts in, frantically heating the water which promptly radiates your electric boosting into the night. Passing bats may enjoy the unexpected warm patch. Unless you check the system frequently you won’t even know it’s happening until your next electricity bill! Even if the split system works well it is burning electricity during the day, peak load times when electricity use most needs to be reduced. Madness. The manufacturers claim the pumps are efficient and don’t use much power. I doubt it. Water is heavy, one litre weighs one kilogram. If you have a 300 litre tank then, starting from cold, 300 kilograms has to be lifted from ground to rooftop. This equates to carrying up 30, ten litre buckets full of water. Do you really want to pay for this when the sun does it for free in a passive system? Five minutes after your roof tank is installed, you’ll forget it’s there. And when your next electricity bill comes in you’ll be glad it is.

The Brunswick Heads Chamber of Commerce is happy to announce that it will again host the annual Brunswick Heads Simple Pleasures Photography Competition in 2010. The theme for 2010 is ‘The Colours of Brunswick’ – inspiring people of all ages to capture the charm and magic of Brunswick’s seaside village life. The event will be coordinated by local event manager, Lanie Loughlin, coordinator of last year’s competition The organisers are delighted to again have the support of longstanding principal media sponsor The Echo and principal event sponsor the Hotel Brunswick, both of whom have been with the competition from its inception in 2005. Entry opens Monday June 7 and closes on Friday August 6. Forms can be downloaded and submitted with photos and the entry fee to the Brunswick Heads Visitor Centre, PO Box 184, Brunswick Heads 2483, or delivered to 7 Park Street. As in previous years, generous cash prizes in five categories will be on offer, as well as the fun and satisfaction of

making art in your own backyard. ‘Winning the competition last year really boosted my confidence,’ said Nathan Betts. ‘I used the money to get some business cards made and have started to supplement my income by taking photos. ‘I have now shot about ten weddings and a couple of family portraits. I really liked the prize ceremony, visiting Bruns and learning more about the people there.’ Entries will form part of the exhibition which is hung in shop windows around the village CBD. The exhibition will run from Sunday August 22 to Friday September 17. The first competition was held in 2005 as part of the Simple Pleasures campaign, and provided a snapshot of how the local community perceived its town and lifestyle. The competition has been held every year since. For all enquiries and information including sponsorship opportunities please contact Lanie Loughlin at events@ brunswickheads.org.au or 0401 470 188 or visit the website www.brunswickheads.org.au. www.echo.net.au

Newrybar kids rock out

5% Seniors Discount every Thursday

The Newrybar School community was rocked from their seats when the student guitar group recently made their first public performance as part of the school’s annual Easter celebrations. After weeks of preparation and practice the students from Newrybar Public showcased their newly taught skills and creative talents in a community

performance held at the school on Thursday. All students from Kindergarten to Year 6 have pursued their individual interests in a range of creative arts activities during Term 1, including wood work, clay model making, guitar and dance. Specialised teachers are employed to implement the activities. Teacher Renae Leeson said,

‘For most of the students it was the first time that they had even held a guitar and they are now so enthusiastic that many of the children would practise playing in their lunchtime.’ Following the performances the audience was treated to an Easter Hat Parade and a shared lunch for parents, students and staff to welcome new members to the school community.

Congress included acknowledging Widjabul country and traditional custodians; ‘catchment detectives’ on the Water Walk; journeying on the Platypus Walk; an interactive 3D water catchment model; a Widjabul creation story with puppets; a ‘what water bug is that?’ exercise; a water testing challenge; and games and stories in the Forest Playground. The initial idea for the Congress was identified by Miranda Jordan, who is a Dunoon Public School student, and a junior member of the Reconnecting to Country working group at Coopers Creek. Reconnecting to Country is a ’partnership project’ funded by the NSW Environmental Trust with local partners being Rous Water, Widjabul traditional custodians and Sustainable Futures Australia. The project holds a vision of creating a new culture of sustain-

able catchment management through community engagement in on-the-ground action and cultural exchange with Aboriginal custodians.

Hip Hop songwriting was one of the highlights of the Water Watch Congress day held at Rocky Creek Dam on March 17. It was a fun and interactive day for the nine participating schools within the Wilsons River catchment. Kids got out of the classroom to work on real and local issues with a variety of educators in a range of learning styles. Students from Bangalow and Wilsons Creek Public Schools joined others from Dunoon, Upper Coopers Creek, The Channon, Rosebank, Corndale, Albert Park and Eureka at the Congress. All these schools have been monitoring water quality in waterways within their schools’ patch of the catchment each term for the last year. Bangalow students, for example, have begun monitoring the health of Byron Creek as a part of the Reconnecting to Country project in Bangalow Park. Wilsons Creek students have been monitoring the health of Wilsons Creek just near their school in the rainforested upper catchment area. During the Congress, students shared and compared results from each school’s water testing and how that indicates the health of their local environment. Other activities during the

Serving Byron Bay and surrounding districts

Goodbye Jai: death in a schoolyard teve Drummond clutches a handful of well-worn photos, but the images are not what you might expect to see. There is no bright, shiny smile from a sweet young boy at different milestones in his life. The pictures Steve carries, marked and labelled, are of areas of a school playground. Devoid of anything but stark sections of grass, iron railings, concrete and brickwork, Steve narrates the last movements of his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life, in his mind the empty photos fill with children and noise. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jai sat along this wall with his mates when the recess bell rang,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he points to one picture. Another takes its place. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jai sat at the edge of this table with the girls after that.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Step by step the scenery comes alive. Steve sees uniforms, snacks, drinks, chatter and activity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all the trappings of recess at Mullumimby High School on the morning of August 28, 2009. Steve has tirelessly researched every second of the minutes leading up to the moment where Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consciousness slipped away. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Someone pulled at him here and this is the place where he hit a wall.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It is clear that Steve has relived this imagined scene over and over in his head. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is the place where Jai died.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He stares at a point on the colour glossy cardboard trying to extract one last glimpse of his son alive. Jai Morcomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death and the actions and accusations of the following weeks have fractured the community. Fingers are pointing and rumours are rife. There are as many stories and opinions as there are people you ask, ranging from the outlandishly ridiculous through aloofness and denial to the disturbingly cold and callous, but at this point, we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet know the truth. What we do have is the process. The process of police and coroner, school and family and those touched by the life and death of a young boy in a playground and, to be successful, the process requires facts. The facts are that Jai was involved in a brawl on Friday morning, during the fight Jai was found unconscious and to all intents and purposes his life slipped away before an ambulance arrived. He was transported to hospital and placed on life support until it was switched off on Saturday morning. Steve Drummond has been active and voluble during the investigation into his sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death. Passion and determination to find answers are the absolute driving force in his life. He has virtually stopped working in a quest to find answers. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is more important than

earning a living,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Steve. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I want to completely focus on getting a resolution.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Steve feels that someone needs to be accountable for the actions which caused Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death and he feels there is a hidden truth which has not been probed. Steve believes that the school is at fault and that there is a person or persons who were the cause of Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s injuries. He is concerned that not enough has been done to prove what he sees as truth and he also feels that correct procedure was not followed after the event in regards to suspension of students involved, which in his opinion may have coloured the nature and the course of the investigation. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Since Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death people have been to see me and told me stories about bullying and violence. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not kid ourselves. That wall is where it happened. Those involved need to know that they stepped over the boundary â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be brutal, there are limits.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Most disconcerting for Steve are what he says are the rumours circulating that Jai had an aneurysm. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I have a copy of the autopsy. It says that there is no pre-existing condition so that rumour has to stop. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not helping anyone by continuing.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Steve has been a prolific writer and has appeared often in the media in the hopes that someone who may not have previously come forward would have a change of heart and provide information which would bring some clarity. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I am just trying to make sense of the days and hours leading up to Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death. Jai was involved in a fight and then it gets very murky. I am just trying to piece together the puzzle and I am desperate for answers.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Steve recently travelled to Sydney to deliver documents to the coroner. While there he had a 40 minute meeting with Minister for Education Verity

<echowebsection=Articles>

Firth, who Steve says was very interested in the information he had gathered. The personal toll on Steve is a lesser known quantity. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I have no future,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Steve. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even see where I am going. I am dealing with things that seven months ago, I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know existed. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I am fully aware that I am on an emotional edge. When it gets too much I am overcome with uncontrollable grief. Then I go home for a few days. I hide in the hills and bawl my eyes out. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deep. I am not kidding myself, I know I will carry this for the rest of my life. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take it as it comes but I have to find something positive out of this.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; any in the community have turned toward the school for answers, of which they have none. The staff and administration have become, as any other witnesses in the case, part of the process and as this is a police and not a school investigation, they are bound to cooperate but not instigate examination into what they term â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the incidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. As head of the school, principal Ian Graham has been a focal point of community and media attention. Mr Graham spoke to The Echo last week and said that the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current morale is reasonably positive, though there have been some impacts on certain groups â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there is uncertainty around the outcome and this is unsettling for the entire school community. He couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say if there were students still receiving counselling but said that counselling was available in the aftermath for grief and trauma and a full time counsellor was available at the school. He also said that the students more directly affected have been involved in projects that give them the opportunity to guide others â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in particular the recently established Mentor Program.

M

When asked if there was still conflict over tables he said that all schools have to deal with territorial and ownership issues from time to time and that conflict happens over all sorts of things. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There are extra tables in the playground. There had previously been a plan to upgrade and refurbish the furniture with money given to schools from the Australian government.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Graham said that there had been changes made at the school since Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I called a review to look at welfare and wellbeing practices and student engagement. The results were that an independent panel made up of members of the department of education, staff and parents found that we had an effective and safe learning environment.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Graham said there had been suggestions for improvement, for example, greater senior executive presence and support in the playground. He also said that some of the changes had already been in progress before Jai died. The school has implemented programs to create student activities and games during breaks. It has revised the welfare and discipline protocols and the NSW Positive Behaviour for Learning program (PBL) which is a schoolwide behaviour initiative to address problem behaviour and reduce its impact on the school community as a whole. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Quite clearly a lesson has been learned by the whole community,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Graham said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Students have seen that the results of a conflict are not what is expected. Programs are in place to explore positive behaviour, peer mediation and support, crime prevention and cyber bullying.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Graham said Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death has had an impact on student numbers, currently at about 750. continued opposite

Articles â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It did impact on the school. A small number of students directly involved in the incident left the school and about 100 others [left also] and there was an unexpected reduction in the year seven intake.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He also said the school was working to ensure the confidence in the parents of 2010 year six students for next year as he says on the whole the school has excellent student outcomes. Mr Graham said that incidents at other schools had seen Mullum High drawn into comparisons that were disappointing and he felt that the media had acted unfairly to associate the school with cases that were in entirely different circumstances. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Another lesson has been the impact of the media hyperbole.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The police were not easy to contact in regards to the case and after many phone calls and emails The Echo received a few sparse responses to questions. The Police Media Unit said that a brief was provided to the NSW State Coroner by detectives from Tweed Byron Local Area Command in early February. They said it is now a matter for the Coroner to determine when any inquest will be held. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;All available lines of inquiry have been followed by detectives and police again renew their appeals for anyone who might have information about the events leading up to Jai be-

ing injured and his subsequent death to contact Tweed Heads Detectives via Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or email tweeddets@police.nsw.gov.au.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The PMU went on to say, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Police have interviewed all available witnesses including students, medical practitioners, teachers and forensic personnel regarding the events leading up to Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death. However, some witnesses have been reluctant to make a formal statement.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office was more clear-cut with the process to date. Their representative said that they had received a police brief on March 4 and that all the requirements had been filled in as far as documentation in the case. The case is now on the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;call-over listâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; which is basically a queue. Complicated cases as this one are usually referred to the Crown Solicitorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office. At this stage the coroner will look at the case on April 30 and then decide if it needs to return to the list to wait for more information or it will be allocated to one of the coroners to investigate. Recently I spoke to Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother Kim Morcom. Kim says that she and Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s siblings are not travelling well. One of Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s older sisters recently had a baby and Kim says the family is just getting by trying to get through each day. Kim is not still being pur-

T

sued by the media but feels that many things that have been said and written were not sanctioned by her. She is hurt that as Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family, they should have been consulted over much that has appeared. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We are family. We are Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family. The media havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t asked us about some of the things that have been in the news.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Kim says that she feels the case is following a natural course and she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think there are any undue delays. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a slow process no matter what the case. It may appear to stop. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. The process is just long, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the hard part. There is no point to move forward from.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Kim was very involved in the Spaghetti Circus and says she was working and studying. She and her family no longer answer the phone and Kim rarely leaves the house. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is a long, slow, torturous and painful process.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; As we wait for the outcome from the NSW coroner we can only hope that there will eventually be a resolution which can bring some comfort and peace to Jaiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family. There is one more photo that Steve Drummond wants to show me. This is of a bright, shiny smile from a sweet young boy on the trip of a lifetime with his Dad to Thailand in 2007. This photo and the ultimate overriding love for his son are Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constant companion.

What do we cherish in our community? Robert Bleakley, Chairman, artsCape Biennial, and founding Chairman of Sothebyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Australia, puts the case for supporting the arts and cultural tourism within Byron Shire. s many of you will already know and I hope anticipate with some excitement, the artsCape sculpture exhibition is returning to Byron Bay. Many will remember the first artsCape, held on the Cape in 2005, which attracted thousands of people â&#x20AC;&#x201C; young and old, local and visitors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who looked in wonder at the amazing artworks that were showcased up and down the lighthouse path and throughout the reserve. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken five years of planning and hard work, but our vision now is to create a nationally significant exhibition in Byron Bay which showcases high quality contemporary sculpture in local landscapes of natural importance and beauty, to be held every second year, from 2010. At the heart of artsCape Biennial, is the question â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what kind of place do we want Byron Shire to be? Who are we, its residents? What do we cherish in our community and, importantly, what kind of tourism do we most want to encourage to our town? It is my belief that artsCape will make a significant contribution to the economic and cultural development of the Byron region. It will exhibit and employ local professional artists, bring national and overseas artists to our region to share their skills and expertise while supporting local emerging artists. It will stimulate the economy of the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creative industries by bringing art lovers and collectors to the area and enhancing the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reputation as a source of art and creativity. Twenty four Byron regional sculptors will participate including John Dahlsen, Erika Mayer, Christina Khumari, Daniel Clemmett, Survira McDonald,Virgina Reid and Annie Younger. Events like artsCape help Byron Bay to define an identity for itself other than â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;party townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;; to reclaim its mantle as a place for creativity, ideas, free thinking, and capture a different more discerning slice of the cultural tourism pie. We need the right kind of tourists and cultural tourists spend more than other tourists â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they seek out cultural experiences, quality food experiences, quality accommodation and other activities. Events like artsCape are low impact, family friendly occasions that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t generate huge crowds, and at the same time convey messages about the environmental sensitivity of the area. A new artsCape initiative for 2010, the Youth Education Program, will benefit many young people from region. Experienced local artists will

and individuals to stage the free 16 day event. Major supporters have pledged support as sponsors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and I thank them profoundly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including Industry & Investment NSW, The Byron at Byron Resort, The Caledonia Foundation, Byron United, Regional Arts NSW, Rotary Australia, the Byron Beach CafĂŠ and Friday on the Beach. Our business partnership team will ensure that their contribution is directed to the programs that resonate most strongly with their interests and that their support for artsCape is beneficial to their organisation. Local and Sydney based art philanthropists have generously pledged their support to artsCape making tax deductible donations through our ambassador program, including Julian and Anne Beaumont, (Julian is the former National Sculpture Prize judge), Dr Greg and Leigh Pearson, Mr Charles AC and Mrs Eva Curran, Bill and Kate Anderson, Andy Gordan and Sarah Prestage, Christopher and Lynda Dean, Max Priestley and Linda Gately, Harry Sollander, Chris Hanley and Dawn Standfield, Patrick and Delene Grier, Maurice and Rae Spatt, Michael and Shanny Crouch, Michael and Laurel Judell, John and Lyn ParchĂŠ of the Byron at Byron Resort, John Bennett and Jennifer Regan, Leslie Ford from Red Ginger and Craig and Dominique Miles from Art Workshops Australia. These tax deductible financial gifts provide crucial support to the vision and longterm goals of artsCape Biennial Inc, its core curatorial objectives and important ancillary projects. ArtsCape will be something we can all be proud of. This year, more than 65 sculptures will be installed sympathetically

within Clarkes Beach Reserve and Parklands. Sculptures will be suspended in trees, nestled amongst trees overlooking the ocean, among the casuarinas, skilfully sited to show off this stunning natural setting at one of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most beautiful and environmentally protected beaches. he theme of artsCape will be the environment. Professional sculptors from the region, from across Australia and from around the world will create outdoor sculptures which convey messages about nature, the environment and sustainability. Through playfulness, humour, beauty, mystery and surprise, sculptures will explore themes as diverse as flora and fauna, ecology, marine conservation, water, air quality, the land, and indigenous culture. Sculptures will vary in scale from the small and intimately engaging to dramatic large scale statements. The event will have works from internationally acclaimed sculptors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; people like Bert Flugelman, Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;grand masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of sculpture and often cited as one of the great sculptors of the 20th century, Syriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Usama Alnassar, Andrew Buisman, from Vienna, Austria, Phil Price from New Zealand, and Japanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Keizo Ushio. Importantly, artsCape will also feature many local and regional artists, some of them established, others just emerging in the art world. I invite you to join others in actively supporting a significant local environmental cultural event in its early years, to be associated with the exhibition in 2010 and beyond. Please visit www.artscapebiennial.org for more information or contact Curator Rebecca Townsend on 6680 7904.

Sowing seeds of sustainable food practices OS preschool goes green The green light has been given this week from the NSW Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Environmental Trust to commence a $2 million project aimed at developing, promoting and influencing the production, distribution and consumption of locally produced food in the Northern Rivers. The Northern Rivers Food Links Project is a collaborative partnership initiated by all seven Northern Rivers Councils and Rous Water. The project business plan has been endorsed by the NSW Environment Trust. The plan will be implemented, over the next two years by recently appointed project management team consultants Samantha Muller, Jane Laverty and Andrew Woods. Clarence Valley Council will act as the lead council on the project, with a steering committee made up of representatives from each of the project partner councils who will work with the management team to deliver initiatives identified in the business plan. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This project is another example where local government is taking a lead and working closely with the local community to promote more sustainable practices,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Rodney Wright, coordinator of environmental services with Clarence Valley Council. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;While the sustainable food area is a new one for some

A new rainwater tank, taps and toilets, insulation and solar hot water system are among recent green additions at Ocean Shores Preschool, thanks to the NSW Department of Environment, Climate Change and Water. Byron Shire Council, Rous Water and the North East Waste Forum have also contributed towards the preschoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sustainable Education Project, enabling educational items that increase awareness of our precious resources to be acquired. These include a new waterplay table and watering cans which will utilise the preschoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rainwater tank, raised garden beds from which the children will gain local food experiences, and a compost bin and worm farm

for composting food scraps. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Already weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve noticed a cooler atmosphere inside the building due to the insulation installed late last year,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; preschool director Sharon Gray said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;By reducing our costs we can maintain affordable, quality early childhood education â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the bonus is we reduce our carbon footprint as well!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to give a huge thanks to everyone who has been involved in our project so far. As a preschool we have the chance to make a big difference through our children,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; added Bridie Schmidt, president. The preschool is now looking for a local business to assist with the costs of solar panels, skylights and whirlybirds. If you can help please contact the preschool on 6680 1438.

Members of the steering committee for the Northern Rivers Food Links Project.

of the councils, many in this area have been promoting the economic, social and environmental benefits of sustainable production and increased consumption of fresh local food for some time.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Project manager, Samantha Muller, of Muller Enterprises Pty Ltd, developed the business plan and through that process gained an intimate knowledge of the potential for the

Northern Rivers community to generate a shift in consumer purchasing behaviour. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Northern Rivers Food Links Project is a landmark project for the Northern Rivers community,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There are many ways to be involved and a myriad of opportunities to improve our environment, support better lifestyle choices and learn skills that our grandparents

took for granted.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The project will involve awarding grants to local groups and community organisations. Local farmers, food cooperatives, distributors, wholesalers, retailers and community organisations are encouraged to contact the Northern Rivers Food Links information line on 6686 3972 or visit the project website at www.northernriversfoodlinks. Director Sharon Gray and some preschool children celebrate with some sustainable waterplay. com.au.

ATL AS P RO FILAXÂŽ by RenĂŠ C. Schuemperli

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

GINA YASHERE GIVE AWAYS All you pommie Lenny Henry fans will be in seventh heaven when you get a shot at seeing Gina Yashere at the Byron Services Club on Monday April 19. Usually packing 2000 seaters, this is your chance to see her in a room of 200, up close and personal. We have a double pass to giveaway. Email gigs@echo.net.au with subject header â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Funny Girlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

Lucie Thorneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new album Black Across the Field was awarded Best Roots Album of 2009 by the Sydney Morning Herald. Martin Jones of Rhythms Magazine raved: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Without exaggeration Black Across The Field is as good as anything Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard this year. Growling with warm tube overdrive, stinging like Neil Youngâ&#x20AC;Ś this is a diverse, profound album, with nuances subtle and breathtakingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Lucie Thorne is fast becoming one of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s master songwriters. How does a lyric come to you?...whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the secret to keeping songwriting simple? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Where songs come from is still a pretty mysterious thing to me, maybe more so now than ever â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but I do know that it often doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take much. One line of melody. One phrase of text. Plenty of my songs have grown out of not much more than that. And the best ones, the strongest ones, seem to come out the quickest... â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I nearly always start with a melody first, a musical idea, and somehow the shape of that melody suggests a flavour of a story, or a lyrical phrase, or even just a few words that I like the sound of, and then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on your way...â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Are albums like children... do you love them all for their differences, or is there a favourite? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Well yeah, I guess they are kinda like my babies! And theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all taken around nine months to gestate, although of course when they finally get born its more like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re immediately teenagers who you hafta kick out in to the world...! And yes, of course you have favourites. I mean I do of my records (how about you with your kids??)

Listen to your Mother Mothers Day is just around the corner. I know that because retail outlets have their most shit CDs pushed to the front of the counter, with a corny Mothers Day insignia above it and some naff reminder about treating mum on her special day. What’s with the music selections that are released for us breeders? My cervix may have dilated to 10cm four times, but at no point during that painful stretch did something inside me snap and go ‘I feel like listening to Celine Dion.’ The counter CD selection being marketed toward us mums included the aforementioned Ms Dion, Susan Boyle, Guy Sebastian and not one, but two Rod Stewart albums. I have always had a secret hankering for the Rod and believe you can’t have too much of the ‘if you want my body and you think I’m sexy’ rocker in your collection. In fact, it is my dream to have a CD collection made up entirely of Rod Stewart albums.

They’re actual priests. Man. I don’t think even their mothers would want to listen. Surely these three blokes could have shown compassion towards mothers all around the world and taken a vow of silence. Happy Mothers Day Mum. For those thousands of hours of mindless toil scrubbing toilets, ironing undies, hunting missing socks... 55 minutes of Priest song. Funny thing is, they looked a lot like the Wiggles. Hang on. They are the Wiggles. The album features songs like... Get Ready to Pray, Big Red Popemobile, and the resurrection hit: Wake up Jesus.

Mothers Day is a marketing ploy, and in all honesty we don’t need any more crap. I have some simple Mothers Day ideas that would make any mother’s heart swell with love and it doesn’t involve fluffy slippers or Barry Manilow. Do the dishes. Not just once. Do them for a week. Pick your clothes up off the floor and put them in the basket. Feed the fricking dog. Try taking it for a walk. And the cat. When it jumps on the table and puts its puckered butt in your face, it’s not trying to say hello or do a Pauline Hanson impersonation. He’s hungry.

Put the bin out. When you see the woman with the uterus who bore you struggling with the shopping, or lugging stuff from the car, then give her a hand. Make your bed. Properly. Not with bits of sheet hanging below the doona and undies scrunched up under the pillow. When you notice it’s raining, get the clothes off the line. Make yourself a sandwich at lunchtime and use a plate. Then take the But wait. There’s more. The plate to the sink.

The Byron Shire Echo April 6, 2010 29


MAGIC OF TUSCANY AT THE BYRON COMMUNITY CENTRE ON SATURDAY 17 is a presentation of Tiffany Campbell and Andria Lessler’s Dear and Yonder Film, and surf art by a local artist James McMillan. James has also created a short film titled Blue Yonder which he will show on the night. The feature film Dear and Yonder features a diverse cast of ladies united by their love of the sea. Their dynamic skills and personalities shine as the film follows them around the world to just around the corner. In addition to documenting the most progressive surfing of today, Dear and Yonder spreads its roots deeper into new soils that cultivate knowledge of place, a sense of history, and encourage sustainable practices. These themes are explored through the stories and insights of the film’s expert water women. Bodysurfer and geophysicist Judith Sheridan utilises her knowledge of the geological forces that have shaped San Francisco’s dramatic coastline to fearlessly charge the brutal surf of Ocean Beach. Far out to sea, Captain Liz Clark demonstrates her commitment to surfing and the environment by using wind power to sail the world in search of the best waves. In the spirit of craft and innovation, Ashley Lloyd shapes and surfs a board utilising a vegetable based Biofoam blank and Belinda Baggs sews her own boardshorts from

vintage fabrics between sessions at Noosa Heads. These women show how far women’s surfing has come, but in order to find out from where, the film journeys back in time to uncover the rich history of women’s surfing with icons Linda Benson, Rell Sunn, Kim Mearig and Lisa Andersen. Thursday April 8, 7.30pm at the Byron Bay Community Centre. Tickets are on sale now from the community centre at $16.

She’s funny, she’s gorgeous, and she’s one of the biggest, brightest talents in comedy. Gina broke onto the American comedy scene with her appearances on Last Comic Standing (NBC) where she made it to the final 10. What you don’t know is that Gina Yashere’s sellout live appearances are legendary. Her bombastic delivery, infectious personality and cheeky observations have wowed audiences not just in the UK and US, but also in Japan, Dubai, Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, Canada and Europe. Gina hails from London via Nigerian parents and shoots from the hip. Her unique take on being both a cultural insider and outsider never fails to raise the roof. Following an early career as an elevator engineer, Yashere made her comedy debut at the Edinburgh Festival in

1996. The show sold out almost immediately and overnight both audiences and critics were smitten, Since those early heady days, Gina has continued to take the comedy world by storm and is now one of the most highly sought after comics in the UK and US, selling out theatres all over the UK, releasing her critically acclaimed DVD Skinny Bitch and making numerous appearances on TV, radio and the big screen. She is also the recipient of ‘Best Female’ at Black Entertainment and Comedy Awards (UK) three years in a row, starred in the West End production of The Vagina Monologues and has headlined at Montreal’s Just For Laughs Comedy Festival, and regularly appears in Las Vegas and on HBO. Gina has recently finished filming a new TV series in the UK entitled ‘Married, Single, Other’ for ITV to be aired this year. Gina Yashere is in Australia on a national tour, and after her performance here two years ago she insisted on returning. She is joined by Joel Salom, international circus performer and comedian extraordinaire with Mandy Nolan as MC.

Television Guide 1. Robin Williams et al have fun in The Birdcage (Prime, Friday, 8.30pm), an American remake of the French comedy La Cage Aux Folles. 2. SBSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paedophiliac commentary does not do justice to Venus (SBS1, Saturday, 10pm), which is better described as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a pair of grizzled veteran actors have their daily routine disrupted by the arrival of a brash grandnieceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Peter Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Toole shines as one of the grizzlies, as does Jodie Whittaker as the niece in question. 3. Another excellent remake of the Thomas Hardy classic Tess Of the Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Urbervilles (ABC1, Sunday, 8.30pm). Nothing like dour country folk to spice up your evening.

could have been and, towards the end, I even caught myself laughing out loud a couple of times.~ John Campbell Nanny McPhee and The Big Bang Emma Thompson, having won a unique Oscars double for best actress (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Howards Endâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, 1993) and best adapted screenplay (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sense And Sensibilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, 1995), is both the writer and star of this lovely film. But I wonder if she has not created a work which will resonate more with older viewers than its G-ratingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demographic. At the midday session I attended there were no youngsters, only a handful of adults (all women), and there is no getting away from the fact that fifty year-old Thompsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story harks back to the Famous Five (indeed, there are five kids involved) and a quainter, Lady Gaga-free world where the accusation of being â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;completely wickedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; meant something entirely different from what it does today. Mrs Green (Maggie Gyllenhaal) lives with her three children in a vine covered, hollyhock bordered cottage in Englandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s green and pleasant land. The kids are a bit of a handful and, with hubby away at the War, she is under the pump to bring in the barley harvest and pay the bills. Doing all he can to swindle her out of the property is pin-stripe suited Uncle Phil (Rhys Ifans) with the oo-arr Wessex accent, whose gambling losses have put him in debt to the tune of one farm. Two toffee-nosed cousins, evacuated from London to be safe from Hitlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Blitzkrieg, arrive on the scene at the same time as a couple of glossy-lipped hit-women are threatening Phil with dire consequences if he does not make good his IOU â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they are fabulous tarts and the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only failing is that we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see enough of them. Once over the hump of the kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; naughtiness and the poo and mud jokes, a cleverly plotted tale of juvenile resourcefulness unfolds, with intrigue, twists and a smidgin of CGI â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the pigletsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; synchronised swimming in the pond is a sweet idea beautifully realised. Critical news from the front is delivered in a scene of heart-wringing sentiment (a lady nearby went for her hanky and if sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d offered it to me I would have put it to good use), and it brings Philâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dastardly plan closer to fruition. Nanny revs up the bike for a frantic trip to the War Office in London to avert the catastrophe and if the city curiously shows no signs of being bombed by the Luftwaffe that oversight is soon forgotten in a moving encounter with Lord Gray (Ralph Fiennes). I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bargain on a Nanny McPhee sequel and the prospect of a third instalment now warms the cockles. ~ John Campbell

patience, Ann Deveraux (Renee Zellwegger) takes her two sons George and Robbie from New York on a roadtrip to Pittsburgh and St. Louis and eventually Hollywood, in her quest to find a man to take care of them all. Renee Zellwegger is splendid as Ann - the glamorous, poised, optimistic but conflicted wife and mother; her emotional journey is amazing and eventually she discovers that actually, she could manage without a man, largely because of her own strengths and skills.

My One And Only My One And Only is funny, surprising and uplifting. The film soars in a restrained, early 50s kind of way, lovingly recreating not only the era but the social mood. In 1953, after her womanizing bandleader husband Dan Hamilton (Kevin Bacon) exhausts her

men wooing Ann provide more than comedic insights. David Koechner stands out because his is the largest part, and Kevin Bacon is excellent as Dan, the flawed musician who desperately wants to redeem himself â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and deep down knows he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Bacon is adept at finding the perfect delivery for emotions that cut deep, with superb subtlety. This is a wonderfully complete, handsomely crafted film that offers both entertainment value and truths about the human condition. ~ Lounge Cinema

Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Out Of My League Shortly after loveless, puny Kirk (Jay Brauchel) meets dreamboat Molly (Alice Eve), with golden hair, pearly teeth and cleavage to die for â&#x20AC;&#x201C;the mismatched couple are destined to be lovers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mollyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friend Patty tells a stranger on a plane to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;go shit in your hand!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The young droogs in the cinema whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d draped their smelly feet over the seats in front of them in studied slovenliness, all laughed like drains. I took an instant and lasting dislike to Patty and prepared myself for a long session of witticisms dependent on the utterance of the word â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;fuckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to elicit a laugh (Kirkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mom says it at the lunch table). When you get down to it, actors and actresses canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a silk purse out of a sowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ear, but Brauchel and the extremely comely Eve do well enough to lift this above the mire of what might have been just another celebration of crassness. Not that they have an easy task. When the couple are at last getting up to a bit of hanky panky in Mollyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apartment, Kirkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s horniness gets the better of him and he ejaculates into his trousers, prompting Mollyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dog to waddle over and noisily slurp over the stain. As movie turning points go, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to admit that that is really scraping the barrel. Has the Judd Apatow generation set the modern rom-com on a race to the bottom in an effort to secure the teen buck? My mind-set was hostile but gradually, and despite my better judgment, I began to enjoy myself and feel kindly towards the people involved. Crippled by low self-esteem, Kirk needs his buddies to help him see that Mollyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s affection is sincere. If it seems a bit rich that the crux of the story â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that you are as worthy as anybody else â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is being presented to its target audience by an industry whose marble mansions in millionairesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ghettos are the spoils of carefully managed idolatry, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that the point is not worth making. Of an excellent cast, T J Miller is particularly good as Stainer, Kirkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closest friend and singer in a Hall and Oates tribute band (they smash â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Your Kiss Is On My Listâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;). The mouthy Seth Rogan-type, he gets the best lines and is the one whose character arc is most pronounced and meaningful. With good intentions and winning performances, the movie is not nearly as bad as it

ARIES: As this week kicks off a long personal growth cycle of change, challenge and opportunity, Saturn’s retrograde may affect your income. Aries can be over-trusting, so don’t let people take advantage – or get angry if they do, because this week good behaviour pays off.

TAURUS: Mercury joining love bucket Venus in Taurus makes you extra witty and eloquent, while all improvements to yourself, home or workplace will expand your present good fortune and attract more. It’s also a good time to tune into your body knowledge for insight on health problems.

LEO: While this week responds delightedly to your majestic chutzpah, its big ask is balancing your forthright urge to tell it like it is with an equally important need not to upset or offend others. Critical feedback’s always more effective when sandwiched between compliments.

GEMINI: Saturn’s retrograde in your home and family zone could stir up your personal life and relegate some plans to the back burner, but don’t give up on them. Relationship hot spots need patience and artful negotiation this week, so be generous with both. CANCER: As retrograde planets

Vassily Smyslov (pictured above), the legendary former World Champion, died in Moscow last week aged 89. In the past century and a half, only 15 players have legitimately held the title of World Chess Champion and Smyslov, by beating Mikhail Botvinnik in 1957, was the seventh to take the crown. Smyslov was probably the strongest player in the world throughout the 1950s, a period

VIRGO: Saturn’s midweek retrograde into Virgo brings a replay of something you thought was already taken care of, giving you yet another chance to let go of long standing grudges or prickly issues and apply the healing feeling of forgiveness – most of all to yourself. LIBRA: This week offers plenty of exercise turning arguments

into agreements and brokering peace treaties with strong willed people who want to run the show. Pluto retrograde brings some interesting lessons in self development via emotional issues from the past resurfacing for resolution. SCORPIO: Be discerning about the people and ideas you align with this week, particularly confrontational citizens who increase desire without satisfying it. You may have to work on your attitude. If others are barging round trying taking charge, don’t waste energy butting heads. Let them have their way – you go yours and do your own thing. SAGITTARIUS: You gregarious Sagittarians will probably do your best thinking solo this week, figuring out how to simplify what’s become complicated in your life. Income and assets may have to be reviewed and recalibrated, but this need only be as stressful as you make it. CAPRICORN: Early week

Capricorn moon is excellent for setting intentions: reviewing the past, assessing the present, planning the future – as much as anyone can in this uncertain world. If this raises more questions than answers, that’s good – it’s humbling to realize you don’t already know everything. AQUARIUS: Midweek Aquarius moon brings ingenious ideas and a delicious sense of mischief, followed by a significant healing shift operating over the next few months if you’re open to it. If uncomfortable realisations are involved, don’t dismiss them but do go easy on yourself.

Smyslov had a reputation as a great endgame player and cowrote the primary textbook on rook endgames but his attacking ability – powerful but usually without flashy sacrifices - was underestimated.

$1 MILLION PRIZE

Some ten years after the service was launched in the UK and US, a system of online restaurant reservations has finally arrived in Australia via a joint initiative between deGroots Media and Dimmi. Now restaurant-goers can book their restaurants online in real-time through www. bestrestaurants.com.au and receive instant confirmation. The great advantage is that the reservation is immediately recorded and reservation numbers issued to the diner, thereby eliminating risks of booking errors as well as the frustration incurred by phoning restaurants on peak trading days only to find they are booked out. The service is similar to booking a hotel room or flight online. Almost 1000 restaurants throughout Australia have signed up to the system – including Gordon Ramsay’s much-anticipated new Melbourne restaurant Maze.

Awarded a Chefs Hat in the 2010 Sydney Morning Herald Good Food Guide, a Highly Recommended award from Gourmet Traveller Wine 2009 and a star from the 2010 Courier Mail Queensland Food & Wine Guide.

in the morning and ski in the afternoon, it’s such a skinny country’, jokes David; in fact it would be entirely possible. From top to bottom it measures more than 4000 kilometres, with a wildly diverse landscape of barren desert and lonely beaches, mountains and lakes – and of course that endless coastline resulting in an abundance of seafood. David was flying back home recently, part-holiday and part-research, when an announcement was made to the effect that due to a technical problem the plane would be forced to land at Easter Island, off Chile. It was there that the passengers learned about the earthquake. But – ‘it’s a very seismic country’, David says calmly, almost cheerfully. ‘We know a lot about earthquakes – everyone expects one about every 20 years.’ Provision for and means of coping with a catastrophe of this scale are therefore highly professional and finely tuned; according to David, most of those who perished were tourists struck by the tsunami as the Chileans themselves wisely fled inland. Red wine is the big thing – David mentions the variety known as ‘carmenere’ often, explaining that Chile is becoming well known for this particular type: ‘a soft red with soft tannins, quite sweet, which gives you the sense of eating chocolate.’ It’s foodfriendly wine too, particularly, he says, with Asian food and specifically Thai. ‘Wine is very important,’ he tells me. ‘It’s about celebrating, celebrating the fact we are together.’

Earth ‘n‘ Sea Pizza and Pasta

Wines of Chile what they say is true about the steadily rising popularity of Latin American food – and more broadly culture – then David Stevens-Castro is a shrewd man. As consultant/adviser for and representative of Wines of Chile in the Queensland and Northern NSW region – with, moreover, an Honours degree in Agricultural Science in which he majored in oenology – he is a passionate advocate for the wines of his native country and anxious to educate the rest of us about them. Born into a family deeply involved in wine, (his grandfather started growing grapes in the early ‘60’s and an aunt and uncle two decades later developed a laboratory for wine certification) he came to Byron Bay in 2007 and became a permanent resident the following year. Working in landscaping is his ‘bread and butter’ as he seeks to establish himself in the wine industry, largely in an educational capacity. He wants to teach people how to appreciate wines but in a simple rather than an elitist way. Chile is the fifth largest exporter of wines in the world and the ninth largest producer, with a climate described as midway between that of California and France. Despite the fact that its viticultural history dates back to the 16th century (when colonising Spanish conquistadors brought vines with them) the country is regarded, as Australia and the US are, as New World in terms of its industry. It wasn’t until the early 1980s that the introduction of stainless steel fermentation and the use of oak barrels for ageing resulted in quality wine production and rapidly growing exportation. From 12 in 1995, the number of wineries has grown to well over 70. The country itself is a long skinny strip contained within the four natural boundaries of Pacific Ocean, Andes Mountain, Atacama Desert and the Antarctic. ‘You can go surfing

Dimitri Neffen as a schoolboy in his native Vemwort.

He was glumly watching a chalk artist trying to construct a multicoloured heart on the pavement while slanting rain conspired to obscure it almost immediately. There was something allegorical about the chalkerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts. I introduced myself and shook Dr Neffenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soft hand, which he held out like an odious gun he wished to dispose of. Eschewing the normal pleasantries, he launched into a detailed description of how he had left his valise on the train, and how it had contained important recipes he had wished to share with me but, alas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a middle-European shrug of the shoulders â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they were now on their way back to Sydney where, no doubt, some atavistic cleaner would stuff them into a plastic repository for the later enjoyment of the seagulls at Botany while appropriating the valise for his/her own dark uses. It was the Doctorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recipes, and his detailed knowledge of food, which had prompted me seeking him out. (Incidentally, Neffen is not a medical doctor but a doctor of philosophy, its original usage before the glorified barbers took it for themselves.) Unlike Prof Pnin, Neffen is not a product of Russia but of Vemwort, the little known republic to Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s west. The cuisine is similar but the differences are important. I shepherded my new acquaintance into a nearby cafĂŠ, where he ordered tea with

a stick of cinnamon. The waitress looked at him blankly, so he settled for tea with four teaspoonfuls of white sugar instead. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The blini, yes, is similar somewhat to our dish, the arkansk,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said suddenly after blinking and sipping his toxically sweet tea. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;While the blini is mostly served with sour cream, the arkansk is with nettle purĂŠe. Also the flour is not buckwheat, but from walnut paste originates.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I probed Neffen on meat dishes and he admitted the national delicacy, grovfilip, was not so available now that the verspet, the miniature reindeer at its core, was endangered. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It too is accompanied by the nettle, which we call zolty, and gravy made with walnut flour and capers. Some people nowadays,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said with a grimace, which almost developed into an expectoration, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;substitute for the grovfilip that American abomination, the himberger.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; There are no desserts in the Vemwortian cuisine. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Why bother?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Neffen with his customary shrug. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You see, Mister Potomac, our dishes our born from the ambiguities of life â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there is sorrow, and then there is even deeper sorrow.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Despite the national inclination towards despair, Dr Neffen recalled with rapture that Vemwortian nectar, pfiltig, a vodkalike liquor distilled from the national plant, the nettle, and flavoured with purslane. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Far superior to vodka,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he grinned. After several hours, during which the good doctor unfortunately attempted the piercing whistle of the national bird, a rather scraggly raptor, I thanked him for the chat, escorted him onto the street â&#x20AC;&#x201C; where the chalk heart, partly obscured by rain and footsteps, now resembled a brown onion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and bade him farewell. Only later did I learn that Dr Neffen sat for half a day on a timber bench at the Byron Bay railway station until some kind soul informed him that the train no longer arrived there. I can imagine him staring disconsolately at the glistening tracks, wondering if his valise was content in its new life.

Disability sports grants available The NSW Government recently announced 15 sporting organisations across NSW will share in $230,000 in funding to help boost their disability sports programs. Sport and Recreation Minister Kevin Greene recently made the announcement with Miranda MP Barry Collier and Sailability NSW at their facilities at Port Hacking. ‘The Keneally Government is committed to making sure everyone in the community has the chance to get involved in sport and physical activity,’ Mr Greene said. ‘As part of that commitment we are working to help remove the barriers to participation. ‘That’s why we’ve invested this $230,000 in funding to help these 15 organisations

train and develop participants, coaches, administrators, officials and volunteers, increasing opportunities for people with a disability to participate and compete in sport. ‘Getting involved in sport leads to quite a few physical and mental health benefits like improved self-esteem and reduced obesity. ‘This funding directly helps sport and physical activity programs for people with a disability.’ Mr Collier said Sailability is a great example of a local organisation helping Sutherland Shire residents with a disability enjoy the many benefits of sport and recreation. ‘Sailability is a non-profit, volunteer-based organisation which through the activity of

sailing, enriches the lives of people with any type of disability,’ Mr Collier said. ‘This important organisation provides activities for all skill levels, including recreational or therapeutic services, to world championship and Paralympic training. ‘That’s why it’s great to see them awarded $20,000 by the NSW Government to help volunteers gain an instructor’s certificate,’ he said. The Disability Sports Funding Program, administered through The NSW Government’s Communities NSW Sport and Recreation Division, is open to non-profit organisations affiliated with a national sporting organisation funded or recognised by the Australian Sports Commission.

Sprinting sisters Marlie and Brianna Campton after their return from the Queensland State Championships held in Townsville at the end of March

Bangalow distance runner, 11 year old Marlie Campton has been quick off the mark in proving herself a worthy recipient of this year’s Byron Shire Junior Sportsperson award and not wanting to be outdone, younger sister Brianna is hot on her heels – the sisters made their presence felt at a meet last month. The Campton girls have just returned from representing Byron Bay Little Athletics Club at the Queensland State Championships, held in Townsville

from March 26 to 28, winning medals in each of their events. Marlie achieved third place in the 1500 metres with an impressive sprint in the last 150 metres and a similar closing sprint in the next day’s 800 metre heat saw her win that event comfortably. The final proved to be one of the most nail biting events of the day, with Marlie again putting on a blistering spring in the last 200 metres, a photo finish declaring the result a dead heat for second place.

Brianna, competing in the Under 9s, is just starting out on her running journey, with great results. She ran a personal best time of 32.47 seconds to win bronze in the final of the 200 metres, with only milliseconds separating all three medallists. The Campton family are very proude of their speedster daughters and are grateful to everyone who so generously contributed to the fundraising efforts which made this opportunity possible for Marlie and Brianna.

Marcus Aboody wins 35th Classic in local showdown Lennox Head surfer Marcus Aboody joined an elite list of surfers, winning the 2010 Byron Bay Classic. Aboody, a LeBa Boardriders stalwart, came from behind to win the 25 minute final, held in solid twometre waves at Broken Head, south of Byron Bay. Former WCT world number 2 and 1996 Easter Classic Champion, Danny Wills took an early lead, attacking his first wave with lightning fast manoeuvres to score a 6.83 from the judges. Then Wills’ Byron Bay Boardriders clubmate and 2007 champion, Yerin Brown, took the ascendancy, first scoring a 7.83 from the judges for a set wave he tore apart from start to finish. Then followed up with a long deep tube on one of the few left-handers surfed over the day to score an 8.33 a two wave combined score of 16.30 (out a possible 20) a combination lead over Aboody and fellow Le-Ba surfer James (Tiapan) Wood. Aboody then sprung into action on one of the largest right hand sets of the day, with a long tube and a series of sizzling on-edge manoeuvres to score a 9.4 out of 10 to be within reach of Brown. Aboody then ran around the break to paddle back out, putting him in the inside position, and

within five minutes was on another set wave, which he andagain he threw caution to the wind with a series of high risk turns to score a 7.57 for a two wave combined score of 16.97 (out of a possible 20). This left Brown with five minutes to find a wave score of 8.65 to snatch the win. Brown did get

Online resource for sport’s culturally diverse The Minister for Sport Kate Ellis launched a new online resource last month to help sporting groups engage more sportspeople from culturally diverse backgrounds. Minister Ellis joined the Australian Sports Commission and leading national sports to promote All Cultures, a program that aims to connect people from new migrant groups with their local sporting clubs. ‘As the composition of our community continues to evolve then so must Australian sport,’ said Ms Ellis. ‘New migrants are two-thirds less likely to participate in sport than other Australians and that’s a real shame. They are missing out and sport as a whole is missing out.’ ‘We want to make sure that people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds can reap the lifelong health and social benefits of sport. ‘Many of our grassroots and elite sports are missing out on the new skills and greater participation rates that the involvement of people from diverse origins can bring. ‘I want to see a multicultural sporting landscape that includes players, coaches, officials, administrators and supporters from different cultural origins.’ The Australian Sports Commission’s All Cultures program aims to lift low participation www.echo.net.au

rates by providing advice to the Australian sporting sector about how to be more inclusive. The new online resources include videos detailing existing multicultural sport programs and useful tips for clubs, coaches and officials. The website complements the All Cultures education programs and an ambassador-led awareness program. The Department of Immigration and Citizenship is working closely with the Australian Sports Commission to promote the All Cultures resource to schools and community groups. Brazilian-born Collingwood Football Club defender Harry O’Brien is one of several All Cultures ambassadors and is passionate about getting people from all backgrounds involved in sport. ‘Football is a vehicle which helped me to integrate into Australian society,’ he saiod. ‘If we can all share in that sporting passion we can bring people together.’ The event was also attended by several local sporting heroes including the Ravens, a basketball team of women of African origin, and Duer Yoa, who came to Australia as a refugee from Sudan and has trained to become a promising 5km cross country athlete.

a chance in the dying stages, but fell short scoring a 7.97, the wave not providing enough potential to give Brown victory. Danny Wills paced third, and Lennox surfer James ‘Tiapan’ Wood placed 4th in a luckless final after being one of the form surfers of the event. The Easter Classic is a fam-

ily affair event, with 11 divisions, over 150 competitors aged from 8 to 60 years of age taking part. The event was also held in memory of Byron Bay Boardriders President, Ben King, who passed away suddenly four years ago. Other reulst for the event were: Open Men, 1st Marcus

Meet Matisse and Nolan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a mother and son duo, whose bond is as strong as superglue. Matisse is a domestic short-hair and nearly 2 years old, while Nolan is an exotic long-hair who is approximately 2 ½ months old. Both mother and son are black and white in colour. There is so much love between these two, and it would be perfect if they could be taken to a loving home together. Both love affection and human contact, as well as being content to hang out with each other. They are the perfect pair.

NSW Health is warning residents and visitors to rural and coastal areas as well as bushy areas in and around Sydney to cover up and avoid mosquito bites, as autumn is the peak season for mosquito borne diseases. Dr Jeremy McAnulty, NSW Health Director of Communicable Diseases, said mosquito activity is expected in the coming weeks, greatly increasing the danger of diseases such as Barmah Forest virus and Ross River virus. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ross River and Barmah Forest virus infections can cause major illness with symptoms including tiredness, rash, fever, and sore and swollen joints. These symptoms usually resolve after several days, but some people may experience these symptoms for weeks or even months,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Dr McAnulty said. People can avoid being bitten by mosquitoes and minimise their exposure to these viruses by protecting their homes by fitting fly screens to windows and doors, as well as taking personal protective measures such as avoiding being outside in the late afternoon and dusk, wearing insect repellent and clothing that covers their arms and legs. Dr McAnulty said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There is no specific treatment for these viruses so prevention depends on avoiding mosquito bites, especially in the summer and autumn months when infections peak.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; People are advised to: t "QQMZ NPTRVJUP SFQFMMFOU regularly (every four hours).

Country Energy will commence installation of a new underground cable in Byron Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CBD on Monday April 12 as part of a $360,000 power upgrade. Conduits for the 11,000 volt cable have already been installed, however it is likely there will be some disruption to pedestrian and vehicular traffic while the work is being done. The cable will run from near the Great Northern Hotel in Jonson Street, to the Byron District Hospital in Worsworth Street. Additional construction will take place at the entrance to the First Sun Caravan Park in Lawson Street. Far North Coast regional general manager, Richard Wake, said the cable would interconnect two sections of the electricity network, providing improved options for backing up supply during planned

work and unplanned interruptions. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ultimately, what we have planned will strengthen our network significantly in the Byron CBD, improving supply reliability,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Wake said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Regrettably, we need to do some excavation work to complete the project and as such, we appreciate the patience and understanding of those who are affected and apologise for any inconvenience. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re aiming to do most of the work during normal hours, but we may have to do some during the weekends and at night. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In all instances, our workers will attempt to minimise disruption as much as possible.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He said there should be no need to interrupt supply during the work, however momentary interruptions may occur when Country Energy switches over to generator power at some stages of the job.

New report shows $400 billion in property to change hands by 2025 M

ore than $400 billion worth of property assets are likely to change hands over the next 15 years as part of an unprecedented baton change of wealth between generations, according to the latest Bankwest Financial Indicators Series report. Never before has such a vast reservoir of wealth moved between generations as an increasing number of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (aged 70 plus) succumb to old

age and pass on a vast pool of property assets to their adult children. This enormous bounty of wealth will be greatly expanded as older Baby Boomers also start to pass away over the coming years and leave behind billions of dollars worth of property. The latest Bankwest Financial Indictor Series report, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Inherited Housing Report 2010â&#x20AC;&#x2122;, reveals that a combination of rising property prices, an ageing population and high home ownership rates will combine to produce a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;perfect stormâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; with record intergenerational wealth transfer or inheritance. Bankwest Retail CEO Vittoria Shortt said the Inherited Housing Wealth Report was based on ABS census data and life expectancy figures and showed that $407 billion worth of housing assets is projected to be inherited by Australians over the next 15 years. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;One in ten homes owned by households will potentially be given away by 2025 which represents an unprecedented baton change in intergeneration wealth, the likes of which we have never seen before,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ms Shortt said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Veterans and Baby Boomers have ridden a rising tide of property prices over recent decades and are now sitting on housing assets worth around $1.5 to $2 trillion. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Crucially, our research projects that there will be a 95% increase in the number of estates with housing assets by 2025. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In 2009 there was an estimated $16bn of housing inheritance and our report shows this could increase by 93% to $31bn a year by 2025.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The analysis is based on ABS census data on home ownership by gender, age group and statistical division; ABS life expectancy data by state and age; and Residex median house prices by statistical division. In the interest of conservative analysis, these projections are based on current property prices and do not model any future price increases.

Ms Shortt said three key factors were driving the expected pick-up in housing inheritance: t"OBHFJOHQPQVMBUJPO t) JHI IPNF PXOFSTIJQ SBUFT amongst older Australians t3JTJOHQSPQFSUZQSJDFT Less certain, Ms Shortt said, was the impact this enormous generational largess will have on the wider economy. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It is still possible that some of this housing wealth might be sold and converted to cash before the Veteran or Baby Boomer passes away, although that would appear less likely with Veterans than the older Boomers. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no secret that many Boomers are determined to cling to a lost youth. They might decide to sell their property and go out with a â&#x20AC;&#x153;bangâ&#x20AC;?, rather than sit on a huge asset and pass it on to their adult children.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ms Shortt also noted that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the capi-

tal cities are likely to see the biggest gains from housing inheritance over the next 15 years.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Projected housing inheritance is highest in Sydney ($113bn), Melbourne ($86bn), Brisbane ($33bn) and Perth ($33bn). Outside of the capital cities the biggest inheritance is projected to be on Queenslandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gold Coast ($12bn) and the Hunter region of NSW ($11bn), both popular retirement destinations. Projected inherited housing wealth over the next 15 years amounts to around 12% of the value of total Australian householdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s housing assets of $3.5 trillion. Other interesting facts: tÄ&#x2021;F WBMVF PG "VTUSBMJBT IPVTJOH stock is $3.5 trillion t/48 JT QSPKFDUFE UP IBWF  of national housing inheritance ($155bn) over 2010-2025 t8" JT QSPKFDUFE UP TFF B TIBSQ

Projections have been made at a national and state level and for 60 statistical divisions across Australia.

There must be an election in the wind, with NSW arts minister Virginia Judge, an accomplished pianist, all over the arts scene on the weekend â&#x20AC;&#x201C; see news pages. For another take on the arts, see Robert Bleakleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion piece on page 20. QQQQ

Local campaigner Deborah Lilly from Mullumbimby Community Action Network opened the program and Simon Berger, Woolworthsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; recent acquisition for community relations, previously senior advisor to the Minister for Defence Dr Brendan Nelson, enthused glowingly about Woolworths. Malenyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Graham Earle was included in a roundup of callers. The program can still be heard and comments left on www.abc. net.au/rn/australiatalks.

As usual, the forums board on the Bluesfest site was a mixture of comments from those having a great time to those pissed off by drunken teenagers taking over the joint, muddy ground and the price of drinks. Our staffers cited a number of acts they really enjoyed and our photographer was in image heaven (as usual) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; see pics QQQQ page 21.

Among the vacuous announcements last week, we discover that Beautifulpeople.com has revealed that Byron Bay ranks ninth on the list of the top 25 most beautiful holiday hot spots in the world, edging out St Tropez and New York.
