Shearwater’s fight for survival So long the Wongs Victoria Cosford

The Wongs will be missed. After more than 30 years in Byron Bay they are moving on. A familiar sight around town on their one-person bicycle, Kim aged 90 and Kam aged 88 will soon be moving up to Jeta Gardens in Bethania, Queensland, a Chinese nursing home. Owners of the Red Ginger Food Stores Leslie Ford and Marina Batalha have known the Wongs for the last eight years; the couple is often seen perched in front of the Byron Bay store. ‘They are part of Red Ginger’, Marina told The Echo, ‘they look the part!’ The Wongs met in Hong Kong where Kim had fled to escape the Communist regime and went on

to train as a chef. They came out to Australia in the 70s, Kim running his own restaurant in Wollongong before they made the move to Byron Bay. At the roundabout where now stands the ubiquitous surf shop, Kim soon became chef of the town’s very first Chinese restaurant. ‘It was a good business’, he told The Echo via Marina, who acted as interpreter. ‘There were not many restaurants in those days.’ They built one of the first houses on Pacific Vista Drive, where they have been living ever since – up until fairly recently cultivating their own garden of vegetables and medicinal herbs. The Wongs do not speak English, although, according to Leslie, Kam ‘used to speak a lot more but since she continued on page 2

Moving into the fourth week of a proposed ten week Voluntary Administration, the Shearwater Steiner School in Mullumbimby says they have received messages and pledges of financial aid from across the community and overwhelming support from both Australia and overseas. The entire school community is maintaining a confident attitude in the face of possible closure and the general outlook is of a positive continuation into the distant future. Mark Robinson from PPB, the current administrators, says that there is still an ongoing investigation onto how the school arrived at its current financial situation and that a report of the findings will be sent to creditors by April 23. PPB says that the school was previously incorporated under the New South Wales State Associations’ leg-

islation but is now a company limited by guarantee under the Commonwealth Corporations Act. ‘The change was made earlier this year before our appointment as administrators. We understand that the change was made to facilitate the improved governance of the school and recommended to the school by government authorities and other advisers in the education sector.’ Mr Robinson says that they have been made aware of potential substantial benefactors in support of the school. ‘The school continues to operate with the support of parents, teachers and the government authorities,’ he says. ‘The school community is implementing a fundraising drive for donations and is making approaches to potential substantial benefactors.’ One of the next steps during the VA will be to call for a meeting of the creditors committee which was

formed at the recent creditors information evening. ‘A meeting of the committee can only be validly convened by the administrators,’ says Mr Robinson. ‘We intend to call a meeting when we receive for consideration an indicative proposal for a financial restructure of the school under a Deed of Company Arrangement (DOCA).’ The Shearwater community has begun fundraising in earnest and has created a Save Shearwater Facebook and website. Members of the community will have the opportunity to donate money to the campaign through the site which displays both bank and PayPal account details. Money will be placed in an independent trust account to be overseen by the VA and returned to benefactors if the school is not made viable.

retired, a lot less. They’ve somehow got by.’ Neighbours are supportive; locals give them lifts home. It is really only Marina, these past years, with whom they have been able to communicate in their own language – although Leslie recalled the few months following Kim’s accident when Kam stayed with them and her English started to creep back. (Two years ago Kim fell off his bike and broke his hip. ‘People would come into the shop asking how he was’, Marina said. ‘Everyone thinks they’re my parents!’)

age has caught up with him and so they have to go’, said Marina, ‘we’ll miss them a lot. ‘Some days it’s pretty hard work – they’re not even my family and for eight years we’ve been running around looking after them. But they’ve actually helped me: I’ve embraced them and they’ve become my family. ‘They love Byron Bay but their life has shrunk. Slowly things have got too hard.’ Jeta Gardens is the first aged care resort in Australia whose management, design and services are based on Eastern values and philosophies. There is a Chinese garden and staff who can speak one or more Chinese or Asian languages. Leslie told The Echo that the Wongs will be treated there the way old people in China are treated, as ‘the gold of society’. In front of Red Ginger the Wongs – Grandfather Wong and Auntie Helen – prepare themselves to be photographed. But not before Kim has bent down to retrieve an offending piece of discarded rubbish, and carried it solemnly and carefully over to the nearest garbage bin. The Wongs would like to thank their friends and neighbours who have done so much for them, the girls from the AMCAL pharmacy and Byron Bay for a wonderful life.

The Mullumbimby Community Garden will be launching its organic bush regeneration project on Wednesday April 21. The garden will be setting up a pod, or working group, to undertake regular working bees to control weeds and plant native vegetation along Saltwater Creek on its boundary. The launch will commence at 9am and there will be information provided regarding the project and the local environment including plant identifi-

cation, organic weed control demonstrations and a tour of the site. As no chemicals will be used the project will require more manual labour than a conventional regeneration project. However, there are many community garden members committed to making this a demonstration site for organic bush regeneration. Rainforest Rescue have supported the project by contracting Madhima Gulgan, the local indigenous bush regeneration

team, to assist volunteers at the start of the project. The group will meet every Wednesday between 8am and 12pm. Volunteers can turn up to the site to help out any time within these hours. The community garden is located at the southern end of Stuart Street beyond the museum/market site and adjacent to the tennis courts. Please wear appropriate footwear and bring gloves. For more information contact Dave on 6684 3925 or Jeannette 0412 322 255.

Main Arm man fined $150,000 for bulldozing road into koala habitat Longtime Main Arm resident Christopher McIlrath has been fined $150,000 for developing a road without Council consent through koala habitat and clearing 255 trees. Byron Shire Council brought the case to court and magistrate Jeff Linden also ordered Mr McIlrath to pay Council’s $60,000 legal bill. On February 5, 2007, a neighbour complained to Council about a road being bulldozed through the Kohinoor multiple occupancy. According to a document tendered to the court by Council’s solicitor Ralph James, it turned out that the Kohinoor MO knew nothing of the road and had not authorised it. The road builder, Hardings Earth Moving of Uki, was fined $17,500. According to the document, a Council officer had phoned Mr McIlrath on February 7, 2007, to request him to cease all works. On February 9 the officer inspected the roadworks and ‘observed a significant number of native trees greater than three metres in length that had been pushed over’. The road passed through rainforest and the officer observed ‘many rainforest species that had been destroyed’. In correspondence with Council Mr McIlrath said he intended merely to upgrade an existing track to his land. Council told the court it had

been unable to find an existing road shown on a 1991 map for Kohinoor, nor were there any development consents for earthworks, tree removal or roadworks. Environmental consultant Rob Kooyman inspected the roadworks for Council on February 15 and 16 of 2007. His report stated the clearance and disturbance associated with the roadworks ‘is likely to have a significant and deleterious effect on both the lowland rainforest and associated plant

species in the immediate area of the site’. Council’s acting governance manager David Murray said last Monday that it was the support from the community that lead to the successful conviction of the landowner. ‘Evidence and witness statements from the community are vital in the cases like this and we thank the community for their support,’ Mr Murray said. He also that Council often heard claims of ‘I didn’t know’ as part of a defence from land-

Council plans Bangalow land rezonings Six land areas in Bangalow are proposed to be rezoned for residential purposes. Byron Shire Council’s executive manager of planning Ray Darney said once released, the land will offer up to 150 new dwellings. The sites have been identified in the Bangalow Settlement Strategy 2003 and the Byron Shire Local Environmental Study 2008 and are located at Granuaille Crescent/Rankin Drive, Ballina Street, Thomas Street/Charlotte Street and

Parrot Tree Place in Bangalow. Mr Darney said the sites will need to be rezoned from general rural and agriculture to 2(a) residential. ‘The rezoning of the land will allow for future land parcel releases to accommodate a mixture of residential house blocks, townhouses and retirement villas,’ he said. The public exhibition period closes Wednesday May 5. 2010. A community information stand will be held on Thursday April 22 between

3pm to 5.30pm at Heritage Park, Byron Street (outside the Post Office), so residents can discuss the planning proposal with the planning consultants and Council staff. The proposal will also be

David Duff takes on the Tour de Cure Story & photo Eve Jeffery

Every 29 seconds someone in the world will hear the words, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I am sorry, you have cancerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Every single day next week, 300 Australians hear the same thing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the week after and the week after that. The sadder truth is that 60 per cent of all cancers are preventable. A lone cyclist will leave Mullumbimby on Sunday May 2 on a personal mission to do his part towards finding a cure for cancer. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I have committed to cycle about 600km starting in Mullumbimby on May 2,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says David Duff, who is the manager of the the Mullumbimby Bridglands Homemakers furniture and bedding store and its secondhand division. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I will be riding a gruelling circuit through Uki, Kyogle, Woodenbong, Killarney, Warwick, Stanthorpe, Tenterfield, Casino, Lismore, Ballina, Byron Bay and back to Mullumbimby to raise money for cancer research.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; David is completing his ride in support of the the Austral-

ian â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Tour de Cureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; which this year rides from Sydney to the Sunshine Coast. David has set himself a fundraising goal of $20,000 which he plans to present to the Tour de Cure cyclists when they come through Mullumbimby next month. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cancer is a disease that affects us all,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says David. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We all know someone who has suffered from the disease.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; David has himself lost two people to cancer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; his father, who did not survive a three month battle

with pancreatic cancer, and a work colleague who became a friend. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Megan Keightly-Buttelman was taken by cancer at the age of 29. Megan was employed by Sealy Posturepedic Bedding as a sales account executive and our friendship grew from a strong business relationship. Her love of life, her smile and her work ethic continues with me daily. A lot of the Homemakers franchise stores fundraise for cancer in her honour.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

David says he has been getting in some training for the ride and has been cycling about 150 kilometres a week in preparation. He knows the 600kms is a big ask but says that the pain and muscle fatigue he will go through on the ride will be nothing compared to what cancer patients have to suffer. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;By the end of 2010, cancer will be the number one killer in the world. It will kill more people on our planet than malaria, tuberculosis and HIV combined.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; This year Mark Berretta from the Channel 7 Sunrise program is undertaking the ride and will be presenting his morning sports reports while on the road. The Tour de Cure will arrive in Mullumbimby at about 10am on Friday May 14. David says riders will stop at the Bridglands Homemakers store for around an hour. For more information on how you can help David reach his $20,000 goal email him at: DavidDuff@retravision.com. au or visit the store on Burringbar Street.

At the recent official opening of the Fletcher Street Cottage for the homeless in Byron Bay, another small launch took place. Self-described â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;singer, songwriter, poet and inventorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mark Plummer presented to the crowd his two-bicycle invention called the Quaddy. Mark, 60, has Parkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Disease. Originally from Melbourne, he came to Byron Bay about four years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I found this the best place in Australia and decided to stay!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he told The Echo. His idea for the Quaddy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; essentially two identical bicycles clamped together with a tray-like apparatus in between â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was inspired by an incident in which the surfboard held by a man riding a bicycle, a not uncommon sight in the town, somehow slipped, caus-

Another Byron Icon closes

Byron Bay Brewery Buddha Bar Free entertainment all week!

Story & photo Victoria Cosford

One of the increasingly rare specialised independent businesses in Byron Bay is about to close its doors. Icon Books in Jonson Street, purveyors of secondhand books, has been run by Rob Delahunty and David Horrocks for the last four years but a combination of factors is now impelling them to vacate the premises. David told The Echo that ‘Byron looks very busy – but what’s the demographic being attracted here? This is part of the issue – most businesses in Byron are catering to backpackers. ‘For a business like ours, you need families. Backpackers want everything to be the cheapest and this is the headspace you’re dealing with here.’ According to David, Byron Bay has been ‘resting on its laurels’ for too long as a tourist destination, citing recent media reports which demonstrate its position in the top five as ceding to places like Yamba. ‘There’s this whole fantasy idea that Byron Bay is the most desirable place in the world but it needs to be maintained – Byron needs to mature as a destination.’ He believes that the town’s party reputation needs to be seriously addressed in a bid to attract the sort of people who

might patronise a small business such as his. Equally disturbing is the burgeoning use of the internet for shopping. ‘We’re competing against eBay and Amazon, with everyone selling and buying online. These are our frustrations, and now you’ve got ebooks coming in. Internet selling will eventually affect all Byron businesses in general. ‘In five to ten years there’s going to be less demand for retail shops and all these empty shop spaces will grow as a result.’ David thinks that ‘it’s coming to the tipping point’ where retail businesses will eventually no longer require a physical presence. High rents in town constitute yet another reason for the move. ‘Obviously, high rents

The boys are currently looking at other locations outside of Byron CBD – possibly even at Bangalow. ‘We’ll let everyone know where we go’, David said. ‘We feel good about what we have done, and we’ve got ideas and plans for what we do next.’ He hopes it will be ‘somewhere close so we can continue to service our loyal customers.’ With this little gem of a bibliophile’s hub only open until the end of the month there’s not much time to go and grab a bargain. Icon Books, at least for now, is at Shop 1/109 Jonson Street, opposite the Dendy Cinema.

Migrating birds set to take wing During March, April and May many thousands of birds leave the Australian shores on their long migration to the breeding grounds in areas across the northern hemisphere as far away as Alaska. The Byron Bird Buddies (BBB) is reminding people to be particularly careful and not disturb resting shorebirds when walking along our beaches or

in the estuaries at this time of year. Some birds have already departed but many, such as the Wandering Tattler and Pacific Golden Plover, are preparing to leave our shores in the next couple of weeks. To make these long flights, some travelling over 10,000kms in one hop, it’s important for the birds to take on fuel in the form of body fat which is stored as a thick layer

under their skin. Migrating birds body weight can increase by up to 70%-80% above their normal need. Large amounts of energy are required just to ‘lift off ’ so unnecessary disturbance while they rest depletes this crucial fuel supply. Bird Buddy member Jan Olley reports that many migrating birds have been observed at the Belongil and Brunswick estuaries as well as the West Byron Wetlands this summer. Birds are ‘now showing signs of weight gain and attaining their bright breeding plumage’. The migrating Little Terns are also feeding along the coastline and resting along the beaches and estuaries as they move north from their breeding sites along the east coast to the Asian feeding grounds. Although they are presently feeding at the Belongil estuary, breeding was not observed. Five pairs of breeding Pied Oystercatchers successfully fledged seven chicks but the small Red-cap Plover which has been nesting at the Belongil estuary for the past five years has decreased in numbers and did not make any attempt to breed this year as major disturbance by people and dogs is still a frequent occurrence.

What began as a bang took on whimper-like qualities towards the end. Byron Shire Mayor Jan Barhamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s notice of motion called for a mini-bypass of Byron Bay to trial over the next summer period but gradually got watered down by recalcitrant councillors to a call for yet another report on the possibility of a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;diversionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, the bypass you have when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not trying to call it a bypass. At last Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting Cr Barhamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motion called for Council to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;commit to the development of a bypass of the town centre of Byron Bay via Butler Street and the second rail crossing near the railway station to allow for a trial of the use during the summer period of 2010 and 2011â&#x20AC;&#x2122;. It would also see discussions initiated with adjoining landowners and lessees to facilitate the trial and clarify the design and the inclusion of a temporary roundabout at the Marvell Street intersection. By the end of the debate councillors voted 6-1, Cr Cameron opposed, for staff to produce a report on the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;optionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Zeus knows we desperately need more reports. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;[The bypass] has been on the books only for a couple of decades,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cr Barham began confidently if ironically. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Quite frankly, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be happy if we just did something. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s try something, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s be bold. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a DA alive for eight years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; can we do something for the next peak season?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Apparently not. Cr Richard Staples saw a need for more clarity. He cited a 1985 comment from then councillor Mike Watterson that the bypass needed to be close to the town centre. He shared the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frustration with the issue. Cr Tony Heeson described it as a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;very difficult situation. You want a Marvell Street roundabout by Christmas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; hullo?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cr Basil Cameron worried about â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;money sunk into white elephantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, which sounds rather painful.

Flat plate collectors perform very well in warm sunny conditions conditions, as the ambient temperatures are high, but summer is not when hot water requirements are the highest.

whole transport network, he suggested, we need to have alternatives to driving your car into the CBD. By this stage Cr Barham was clearly frustrated by the debate, and pointed out that she was talking about a temporary roundabout and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a bunch of water barriersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, not some grand design. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is a very real problem, and I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re failing the community [not doing something].â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And so they must, until at least the next report. As Cr Cameron pointed out, most people seem to want to come into town, not go around it. Even so, Cr Barham could see her concern for local tradies alleviated if a mini-bypass allowed them to duck around the CBD. The alternatives include park-and-ride and the promotion of cycling, which might not accord with the wishes of Queensland tourists. There is always the camouflage trees at the highway end of Ewingsdale Road for a serious diversion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; locals would have swipe cards

The aim is to enable folk to develop granny flats, perhaps 60 square metres in size, for the growing population of older single people and single parents living alone, possibly without the need for Council charges. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We have people living in fear of compliance problems,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Cr Barham, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;and [yet] weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing a disservice to people with desperate housing problems. You can got to Suffolk Park and see garages turned into flats which rent out for $1,000 a week. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t often think the state government does something right but on this occasion I do.

Mayor Barham tabled mayoral minutes on the Seachange conference in Byron Bay in March and the national climate change forum in Adelaide in February, which she attended. She noted â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;no real actionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on climate change warnings since 1977 but seemed impressed with the national forum â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you can read the speeches and presentations (interchangeable nomenclature like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bypassâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;diversionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;) at www.climatechange.gov.au/government/ initiatives/national-coastalrisk-assessment/national-climate-change-forum.aspx. The Seachange conference attendees were â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;very excited by our [West Byron] sewage treatment plantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, according to the mayor. After all, there is a lovely wetland reserve involved. You can find the conference report at www.seachangetaskforce. org.au. From that conference Cr Barham was chosen as the local government representative to a new body, the Australian Coastal Alliance, which will provide an access point for all the research on climate and coastlines. When the next king tide comes in, we can just throw a few truckloads of reports at it. The bypass file could on its own save Belongil.

That is why we are implementing strategies such as the Preschool Investment and Reform Plan to create more places in areas such as Northern NSW. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Under the Plan, together with funds from the National Partnership Agreement on Early Childhood Education, we are investing $50 million this year to create 5,250 new preschool places by 2013.

targets areas where research has shown additional preschool places are most desperately needed.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; While in Lismore Ms Burney also visited a menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anti-violence project and met team members from Northern United and the Lower Clarence Magpies, who were participating this season in Tackling Violence, the Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s antidomestic violence program in partnership with regional rugby league clubs. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Reducing family violence is another important priority within the State Plan and, as Minister for Community Services, I am pleased to support initiatives like these which help reduce the abhorrent levels of family crime in our state and, in particular, on the north coast.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The State Plan includes a specific target of reducing personal crime, particularly violent crime, by ten per cent by 2016. www.echo.net.au

But the cost of keeping abreast The philosophical debate was around the perennial issue â&#x20AC;&#x201C; of new medical technology is who should pay for tourism? Cr Tabart was of the opinion the rising much faster than the rate business sector should look after itself.

But at present they are still being told by their respective premiers that Canberra is the source of unlimited wealth and that if the feds would only release it all would suddenly be well â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all gain and no pain. Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s John Brumby is, as usual, the worst offender; until last week his health policy con-

nally be brought to heel when the crunch meeting of COAG begins next week. Rudd has already started to hand out the biscuits: $500 million for emergency services of Saturday, $740 million for aged care beds on Sunday, and there is doubtless more to come. The bribes will help, but the overriding issue is that the voters really want health and hospital reform, and are likely to inflict a horrible punishment on any politician

An ever increasing proportion of national revenue will have to be devoted to health simply to remain standing still. by Mungo MacCallum sisted entirely of insisting that Kevin Rudd should give him a gigantic bucket of money or he would refuse to play. This has since been refined into something a tad more sophisticated, but the core demand remains. The general view of the commentariat was that Brumby is just grandstanding for his local state audience and this is probably true; the standout was (of course) Dennis Shanahan in The Australian, who wrote admiringly that Brumby had raised some serious and relevant questions and was quite capable of sabotaging Ruddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan for the hospitals in the same way he sabotaged the national water agreement, and wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that be fun? It used to be thought that the outlying states â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Queensland, Tasmania and Western Australia â&#x20AC;&#x201C; had cornered the market in parochialism. Brumby, egged on by Shanahan, has upped the ante considerably. Nonetheless, the likelihood is that despite some lukewarm support from Kristina Kenneally in New South Wales, he will fi-

who is seen to be standing in the way of it. This is a much bigger issue than the water rights of a few recalcitrant irrigators, and Brumby is smart enough to see it. Incidentally this does not necessarily mean that Ruddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fallback threat of a referendum would succeed; during a long campaign the premiers and others could muddy the waters considerably. But it does mean that no premier hoping for re-election will want to be the one who pulls the plug. Ruddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or a slightly amended version of it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will probably get past COAG. Then comes the hard bit. It is to be hoped Rudd is up to it; his behaviour over the asylum seekers suggests that he is still finding the hard decisions a bit too hard. The announcement that processing of Sir Lankans and Afghans would be frozen for three months and six months respectively justifies Tony Abbottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s description as a quick election fix â&#x20AC;&#x201C; being seen to be doing something about an apparently intractable problem.

Rather than taking Peter van Onselenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s counsel and showing leadership, Rudd has capitulated to the shock jocks and to the scaremongers of the opposition. Dennis Shanahan called it a populist response to a highly successful populist campaign waged by Abbott and his shadow minister Scott Morrison; Van Onselen accused Abbott and Morrison of trying to rabble-rouse their way into government. But there was little doubt that it was a copout, and one which is unlikely to provide the government with much relief. For starters it is a broken election promise: Ruddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s policy was that asylum seekers were to be fully processed within ninety days. Now the Afghans will have to wait twice that long before their first interview. The justification, if it can be so described, is that conditions have changed; the prospect that the boat people can be sent home without having a well-founded fear of being persecuted (the test for a genuine refugee) are now brighter. This assessment is highly dubious. Sri Lanka is certainly more stable, but then, the most ruthless dictatorships often are. The stability does not mean that the government will be any less brutal to what it sees as rebel Tamils, especially those who have attempted to flee its shores. And Afghanistan, of course, remains a bloody mess, as it always has been and probably always will be. Manuel Jordao, a senior official of the United Nations High Commission on Refugees, may well have been right when he said that people smuggling, with the introduction of spotterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fees and cut price fares, was out of control. Ruddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s move does nothing to bring it under control; at best it buys him a little time. Given that his opponents are constantly accusing him of procrastination, this may not be the shrewdest of moves.

Holiday letting’s ‘embryonic mafia’ Over the past year or so the case has been well made that Council staff have systematically looked the other way in relation to holiday letting while adopting a gung-ho approach towards unapproved dwellings, particularly in rural areas. In this debate there is a third interest group which has been quite ignored: those owners of legitimate accommodation houses (motels, caravan parks, B&Bs) whose business has suffered at the hands of the prolific holiday letting industry. I finally got around to this problem at last week’s Council meeting when I asked whether Council has received complaints and submissions from those affected. I was quite stunned by the mayor’s response; obviously glad to get it out of her system she replied that yes, she and Council had received numerous

complaints and representations. Not only that but some complainants had been abused and threatened such that they were no longer prepared to speak up. Jesus. Okay, we already knew there were some ugly minds in the Byron Bay business community, but a local embryonic mafia protecting its turf through intimidation is a step too far. I remind readers that last year the GM wrote that his staff were pursuing unapproved rural dwellings in fairness to those who had gone through the proper approval process. Why then have we heard nothing from him about fairness to those motel and park owners adversely affected by holiday letting? Ditto the Department of Planning. Last year they wrote that Council’s precinct plan for holiday letting might adversely affect the finances of some indi-

viduals who would be prevented under the plan from letting out their houses. Not a word about the finances of motels and holiday parks (nor about the finances of rural landowners for that matter). It’s high time those affected by holiday letting get themselves organised and come out of the closet. If they know who the intimidators are they should go to the courthouse and get an AVO. (Don’t bother about the cops, they don’t want to know). They might want to write something about it in The Echo, which under the circumstances, would be prepared, I imagine, to protect their identity. They might contact me so that I can include the information in my forthcoming complaint to the ICAC. Or they might get in touch with the ICAC themselves. Don’t bother about the ombudsmen, they’re as useful as tits on a bull; in fact

Water resources

Most of the inconvenience to local residents seems to have been well tolerated as being in line with expectations. The notable exception, however, was to the surrounding district’s otherwise quiet nights which were rhythmically blasted by over-amplified low frequency noise. For any of us fortunate to be half deaf, it wasn’t a serious problem. But we are aware that for at least some with normal hearing, the noise at a distance of 3km-4km brought physical discomfort. For those close to the source we would have thought the sound levels were physically damaging. But that’s not our problem. As for wildlife, who cares? The difficulty might be totally eliminated if items requir-

ing bass bombardments were rescheduled for daytime. Some planning advice in this regard seems indicated. If this particular aspect of noise were ameliorated we could all look forward to living together as good neighbours.

All hail to Miranda Jordan’s excellent idea to have a Water Watch Congress at Rocky Creek Dam (Echo, April 6). What’s more important to a community than clean water? Education is where it’s at. It is the children who will lead the way to our sustainable future. Let’s hope this becomes a regular feature on the school curriculum. Majenta Appel-Pye

Bluesfest noise We acknowledge that the Blues and Roots Festival contributed to the Shire’s cultural diversity, and brought welcome trade to the retailers. It is nice to know participants are reported as having enjoyed themselves.

I’m thinking of complaining to the ICAC about them too (could be interesting). My advice overall is to go public; Council staff hate publicity and so do those directly involved in nefarious activity. Give them some of their stress back. Fast Buck$

Huge rethink needed on immigration to Australia I have always regarded Tony Abbott as a totally reactive personality, and superficial to the core. Both of which characteristics were confirmed in this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Q&A program. However the debate did bring into clear focus the contradictions in the migration policies of both major parties. As has often been pointed out the number of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;allegedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; asylum seekers,

as the news bulletins insist on calling them, is tiny compared to those arriving by plane. Unfortunately boat arrivals make for much more media drama than other arrivals so that is what becomes featured. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the emotive term â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;queue jumperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. If there were Department of Immigration offices in Mazur, Al Sharif, Mogadishu and Darfur, for

example, this would be a fair enough characterisation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, it is a bankrupt and dishonest description. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the dismissal of people as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;economic refugeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and much is made of the amount of money required to get someone to Ashmore Reef, ignoring the fact that a whole family may have gone into lifetime debt to get just one

family member to Australia. At the same time another section of government is positively encouraging another group of people to buy their way into Australian citizenship. By encouraging people to do Mickey Mouse occupational courses and more or less promising permanent residency after four years this is precisely what is happening.

If Australia is to get the best out of its immigration program, then all sides of politics need to do a huge rethink in particular in regard to its many anomalies. Basically as I see it in the looming global climate crisis we need to encourage more Asian farmers, whether they can speak English or not, rather than more middle class so-

phisticates. The success of the Hmong people in Tasmania and Victoria is a case in point and it is to be remembered that the success of areas like the Barossa Valley (German) the MIA and the Australian sugar industry is largely due to the industry of Italian and Maltese migrants.

vantages would have had good Byron town, less pollution welcome amenity for an everwould have benefited the entire results for everyone all round because of that, therefore less growing area, competition for Suffolk Park region. The ad- â&#x20AC;&#x201C; less traffic needing to go into congestion in town, another a very over-priced option that we are now stuck with. All this begs the question, just how representative are these so-called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;residents asBONUS PACK OF CHIPS sociationsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and can a handful with every 15 pack of VB purchased of individuals claim the right to represent the needs and desires of an entire suburb? In my experience they are usually made up of a disproportionate number of people suffering .99 $ from the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;not in my backyardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 15 pack syndrome.

The naked truth To the women who stopped going to Tyagarah. I have good news. After two years of inadvertent research, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found the best way of taking back our right to feel safe and free on our wild open beaches. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d tried the walk away and scream approach, the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Stop f*%king following meâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; approach, the calling the police approachâ&#x20AC;Ś but the most effective one by far was the talk to them like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re little children who simply donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;rules of politeness in publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; approach. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really simple. Mothers would be especially good at this, hence it took me two years to figure it out. This is how I did it. I walked over to the individual who appeared out of nowhere, laying with his dick and eyes pointing towards me, close enough that I could feel his slimy tentacle energy. I stood tall in front of him and his dick, looked him in the eye, said Hi, and politely asked him if it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel odd to him

Steiner crossroads The Shire has benefited from two wonderful Steiner schools. Unfortunately, this Steiner nirvana has come crashing down with administrators of the Shearwater School revealing â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;$10m in liabilitiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. I believe the events of last week bring into sharp focus the conclusion that two PK-12 Steiner Schools within such proximity is economically unfeasible and foolhardy. In response the new administrators are now actively involved in changing â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the constitution, the management and governance structure of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Coincidentally the Cape Byron Steiner Council has had the foresight to propose some excellent recommendations to change its own constitution, and over the last six months has made two judicious management appointments. Now with the events of last week, we are approaching a fork in the road. One road for the Cape Byron association members is to focus on their own piece of paradise in Ewingsdale and consolidate its operations. The other path takes a broader perspective and looks to their neighbour with open minds and warm hearts. Would the 900 odd Steiner students in the Shire receive a better educational experience from two independent Pre Kindy to Class 7 Steiner Schools in Byron and Mullum, and one Senior Parsifal College from Class 8 to Class 13? Could the opportunities presented from a larger peer group and world-class facilities at one campus in Mullum be superior to the current offering? While heartening to read of the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;upbeatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; response at Shearwater, I truly donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if there is the will to change the current

GM crops v bees An Echo reader has recently published (www.fractalfield. com/savethebees) an article with 29 references that provides evidence suggesting that the global loss of bees known as Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) may in fact be caused by genetically modified (GM) crops. The GM crops contain an insecticide called Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) and the immune response bees have to the Bt causes them to lose their memory and forget where the beehive is. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why no dead bees are found in hives with CCD and the bees simply disappear. For those who are not so interested in the bees and all the food they bring into being, the peer reviewed journal Archives of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology 2007 52(4): p596-602 (PMID 17356802) has shown that in animals that ate GM corn: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;chemistry measurements reveal signs of hepatorenal toxicityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Additionally, triglycerides rose by up to 40% and sodium and phosphorus excretion by the kidneys was dramatically reduced. Nearly everyone in the Western world has eaten GM foods and GM foods are not labelled as GM foods. The recent release in Europe of a GM potato with a gene for antibiotic resistance may well provide equally unexpected outcomes in the food chain. Peter Olson

Solar hot water To offer a correction to an otherwise great argument by Adrian Gattenhof in The Echo last week, in an active electrically pumped solar hot water system, the pump merely needs to move the water, not lift it. As stated, the pump does need to overcome the thermosiphon force of the hot water wanting to rise back to the panels, but this alone would be something in the order of only a few watts of increased power, over the task of the pump overcoming the skin friction of the pipes, which is also minimal, as the flow rate is not great. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a closed system, and when the hot side is pumped down to www.echo.net.au

When the Student Parliament at the UN Boys’ School in Bureij Refugee Camp, Gaza, were asked what was the most important thing they wanted, they chose clean water. Gaza is in the midst of an extreme water/sanitation crisis because of its history, its rising population and poverty, the Israeli blitzkrieg and the siege which blocks the import of building materials, pipes, machine spare parts, cement, electrical infrastructure and fuel. In 2005 when Israeli settlers were rehabilitated from Gaza to the West Bank, they left a trail of destruction. Water mains were bulldozed, electric lines torn down and tons of sand removed, thus intensify-

ing sea water contamination of the aquifier which is Gaza’s major water source. The Middle East Children’s Alliance (MECA) has now provided clean water to four more large UN schools in Jabalia, Nuseirat, and Shati refugee camps and to two kindergartens in the town of Beit Hanoun and in Maghazi Refugee Camp. MECA is seeking supporters to expand the Maia (Arabic for ‘water’) Project to schools throughout Gaza. A large purification unit for a UN school in a refugee camp costs $11,300. The UN schools run in shifts due to overcrowding and each unit provides drinking water for 1,500-2,000

children and staff. The small units are located in community centres with after-school programs and summer camps so the units serve these children as well. I sent $US2,000 to MECA on behalf of donors from Byron and elsewhere which will pay for half a small purification unit serving up to 250 children. Our Byron community has a longstanding record of care and compassion. It is hoped that local schools like those in the US will twin with their Gazan counterparts and raise funds to provide the water purity we take for granted.

the storage tank, the cold side gently rises to the panels under the weight of the hot water coming down. Think of a ferris wheel. Now think of a large looped pipe filled with water. Now imagine a tiny pump sitting somewhere in the loop, creating a gentle flow around and around. Certainly a tiny tiny fraction of those dinosauric 3.5 plus kilowatt heating elements are still sitting in so many homes. And gas is not much better either. But the ‘passive’ solar tank above the panels, is a no brainer. It’s wonderfully simple and automatic with virtually no moving parts. Just avoid systems with vitreous enamel coated mild steel tanks with sacrificial anodes. They require cost and maintenance because the two materials expand and contract differently and the enamel cracks, then the steel rusts, and that’s when the anode kicks in, to slow down the rusting. But eventually the anode chemically dissolves away and needs replacing, but by then, the tank is pretty well rusted anyway. Horrible. So, get a stainless steel tank, as they don’t rust and hence don’t need the anode in the first place. My passive system has cost me only $2 in boost heating, over the eight years it’s been happily sitting on the roof. Go for it. Just do it. It’s a hit.

can afford good health care and pensions – and becoming more like the USA or Argentina: inequality means only the rich can afford those things. So, we increase taxes on income above $450,000 per year. Thirdly, the huge foreign debt we take on to speculate on house prices – pure inflation – costs us huge interest repayments. So, an awful lot of our boom money goes straight overseas, via our banks. That debt must be reduced. There’s a fourth that follows from that. Our business, land, and even houses are for sale to overseas buyers. Great for one (the seller), bad for all (Australia). As long as we continue to sell away our country, we sell away our income. We must regain ownership of our country. We can’t fund health? We can’t afford to train people? We can’t afford decent pensions? We can’t afford even to monitor the Great Barrier Reef? There’s a hole in the bucket, from the Kimberley, through the Hunter, all the way to Mt Isa.

Eyes on the outrageous in nature

Shire zoned out

The scraggly eucalypt tree marks the start of the hill on my street. I’m cycling. I could press on, but I often get off my bike here to walk the last fifty metres home. Maybe I lack physical stamina. But my true vulnerability is for anthesis. That’s botanical for ‘blossoming’. Isn’t every eye on these outrageously pink flowers? Over the past few weeks, I watched several buds at eye level. They swelled and little caps popped off. (That ‘pop’ is how eucalypts got their name, as the word itself is a Latin construct describing this unique event.) Then a mass of pink stamens, the plant’s male parts, presented themselves. The yellow tips, its anthers, are full of pollen. Not a petal in sight. In the middle of each blossom is a pistil, the female part. This matures after the male stamens have already released their pollen. The time delay means the pistil is more likely to be brushed with the pollen of another plant altogether. Pollen will grow a tube down

Byron Shire has suffered from extensive land clearing in the past. The first European settlers began to take up selections in 1881, and by 1900 almost all of the 75,000ha Big Scrub (Australia’s largest area of lowland sub-tropical rainforest) was cleared for agriculture. Now 23% of Shire lands have native vegetation, though most of this is in coastal swamps or hilly country, and half has severe weed problems. The experts maintain we need to increase this to at least 50% if we want to stabilise populations of native species and minimise our future losses. In 1986 Byron Shire Council moved to protect its remaining native vegetation by adopting a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) and in 1988 it zoned lands for environmental protection in the Local Environmental Plan (LEP). The zoning was ad hoc and limited, though the TPO has been extremely successful in providing protection for the Shire’s native vegetation. Unfortunately, under the NSW ALP’s new planning regime, all Shires are prohibited from having TPOs in rural areas and thus the only vegetation control left for Council is the zoning process. The NSW ALP has thought of this and greatly restricted the zones that can be used and the constraints that can be applied in them. The Environmental Conservation zone (E2) is the one intended to protect land that has high conservation value, and is the only zone which provides any meaningful protection.

the pistil and fertilise the eggs at the bottom. Beneath this floral display is a tough green cup, which is filled with nectar. This sweet beverage is the mainstay of insects, birds, bats, gliding possums and even lizards. The eucalypt produces fairy-sized flagons of this high carbohydrate energy drink especially to attract the larger visitors. These pollinators travel far which is important to eucalypts, scattered as they are over the huge Australian landscape. Australia is well known as a very old island continent,

slowly moving towards Asia at a rate of six centimetres a year. Approximately 25 to 10 million years ago, the climate throughout much of Australia got very dry. In this stressful period, thanks to the eucalypts happygo-lucky pollination policy, they and their animal helpers survived. As locales changed even more, the plants specialised, developing into many different species. Well, that’s one way of explaining the development of approximately 800 species. There appears to be a few for every environment. But in trying to clearly name the different species, botanists find great trouble. The species just won’t stand true enough. Their variability, even from tree to tree, is so great. This news, for me, is a relief. I tried identifying this tree, comparing it with several others close by. Even within a species, eucalypts can vary in flower colour, so that’s not always helpful. This tree is a new Corymbia species or an old Eucalyptus one, depending. Another group, Angophora, is also so closely related and as difficult to tell apart. The casual observer is safe sticking to the label ‘eucalypts’. Part of this confusion may be because of Biology itself. The idea of species has 14 current useful definitions. Species can be simply decided by looking at differing characteristics. This works for some eucalypts, but not all. Another famous and often used definition is that its members reproduce naturally with each other, producing offspring of each gender who can also reproduce true to type. This has been applied to eucalypts, but with mixed results. Working through the many definitions, the difficulties still grow. This doesn’t mean that the idea of a species is pointless. It suggests that something else is going on at another level. Definitions have to keep up, especially because Biology is, well, sticking to the biology. Another definition of species is that pool of descendents of a common ancestor. The pool maintains its own integrity over time. It stays distinct even as, due to variations, it changes over time from other descendents. Investigating eucalypts using this definition prompts changes such as the Corymbia-

Eucalyptus classification. But staring deeper into the many eucalypts shows up a really weird thing. Some species, which appear to be very variable, are now looking like a ‘complex of hybrids’. These result from natural cross breeding: a parent with an offspring or even another species. A team in Tasmania found one major species was revealed to be a ‘hybrid complex’ of at least four lineages. Not only that, three other eucalypt species also show this particular variation of DNA. That can only happen with crossbreeding. This hybridisation is not the well known ‘multiples of chromosome’ variety. That process results in say a hibiscus whose flowers have more petals than the parents. This type is the successful mixing of genes and growth of plants that can reproduce themselves. Now, another Australian group of trees, the paperbark, also appears to harbour some complexes happily hybridising in a similar way. These plants are part of a pattern over space and time called reticulate evolution. They wreck havoc with the notion that a species is a solid building block or unit in nature. They also reshape our ideas of evolution. According to Ford Doolittle, an evolutionary microbiologist, an intertwined network is a more fitting image of evolution than a branching tree. Meanwhile, at sea, J E N Vernon believes species of coral could also be better understood as reticulating hybrids too. Vernon is a coral specialist and former Chief Scientist at the Australia Institute of Marine Science. After years on reefs throughout the world, Vernon finds that a species of coral is only a clear entity within a limited geographic space. Over greater distances, coral seem to exist as ‘interlinked patterns changing continuously’. Spawning in ocean currents as do corals has parallels with trees blossoming and enticing roving animal pollinators. Each in their own way, they seem to let fly and trust to forces outside themselves. That coral or this eucalypt, active in its own context – how do we put a name to these moving targets in the ‘everywhen’?

<echowebsection=Letters>

High value areas Since the 1988 zones were identified, Council has expended significant resources in undertaking vegetation mapping (1998, 2007), undertaking flora and fauna surveys, preparing the 1999 Flora and Fauna Study and preparing the 2004 Byron Biodiversity Conservation Strategy. This should have put us in an excellent position to identify the highest conservation value areas and provide them with the highest level of protection. Until April Fools Day it was proposed to protect most of Council’s identified High Conservation Value (HCV) native vegetation in E2 zones in the draft of the new Local Environmental Plan. On April 1 Byron Council voted to slash the HCV vegetation included in the E2 zone by some 80% by limiting the application of the E2 zone to a subset of the environmental protection zones identified back in 1998. All the data collected since then, along with the Biodiversity Conservation Strategy, were deemed irrelevant.

The rationale for this is that the 2007 vegetation mapping was not properly reviewed by Council staff and thus included some areas it should not have, such as orchards and houses. So rather than urgently reviewing the mapping to exclude such anomalies, or excluding the relatively low value vegetation causing the problems, or inserting a clause to overcome the problems, Council decided to throw the baby out with the bath water. There are many people who live in this Shire who spent years trying to protect rainforest and oldgrowth forest on public lands. It is thus extremely disappointing to see that Council has resolved to provide the highest level of protection (E2) to only 21% of our best rainforests (<10% camphor laurel) and 38% of our best oldgrowth forests (>30% old senescent trees). There are also large areas of Endangered Ecological Communities which occur on Shire lands that Council has resolutely excluded from the E2 zone.

Danger of extinction Due to Council’s resolve to return to the 80s they are also denying appropriate protection for our threatened species. The Coxen’s Fig Parrot is in imminent danger of extinction, yet Council has denied the highest level of protection for its only location on Shire lands. Of the primary and secondary habitat identified for the Koala on Shire lands only 21% is to be zoned E2. For the habitat of the endangered Mitchell’s Rainforest Snail only 57% is to be zoned E2. The list goes on. There are 331 locations for 31 species of endangered plants on Shire lands, of these only 84 locations of 17 species occur within areas now allowed to be zoned E2. Despite their desperate plight, Council has resolved to only provide 25% of the locations of plants in imminent danger of extinction with needed protection. Vulnerable plants have fared no better. Council’s decision to ignore the past 22 years of biological data collection and limit the highest protection in the new LEP to a subset of the areas identified in 1988 exemplifies the worst of political bastardy. There is no environmental science involved, and no consideration of the need to appropriately protect rainforest, oldgrowth forest and threatened species. The current Council has set back conservation in this Shire by 22 years. They have fooled us, and they do shame us. With no TPO to fall back on, the future consequences will be dramatic. www.echo.net.au

Dropping in on the board wars

The new easy way to shop in Byron Bay

Going Vertical? It’s as good a description as any of the shortboard revolution which transformed surfing in the sixties and seventies – and helped transform Byron Bay from a working class, poverty-stricken township to the surf-and-beach magnet it is today. It’s also the title of a new surfing film which opens at the Byron Dendy Cinema this week and features local surf legends like Bob McTavish and George Greenough, as well as world champions from Nat Young through to Kelly Slater. The theme of the film is the never-ending argument about who pioneered the ‘revolution’: the Australians or the Americans? As you’d expect from a movie produced by Robert Raymond and directed by David Bradbury, both of them locals, it tends to favour the Australian surfers who, back in the sixties, started chopping down their longboards to create one which was much more manoeuvrable and allowed surfers to climb and drop up and down the face of the wave instead of just trimming across it.

documentary of a pivotal moment in surfing history. I remeber when a team of Californian surfers, who had come out for the Melbourne Olympic games, surfed Manly on their Malibus and astonished the local surfers – including a young Midget Farrelly, who went on to become world champion. The makeover (and the rivalry) had begun. Going Vertical is a generous film and, despite their arguments, the Australian and American surfers are generous in their tributes to one another. In fact the movie ends with Brewer and McTavish strolling companionably along the beach at Sunset agreeing that both nations had a hand in the surfing revolution which devloped into the extreme, superathletic, in-your-face art it is today.

abandoned his spoon and surfs off Watego’s in heavy swells with a half-inflated mat. But the star of the film is Bob McTavish, who chopped half a foot at a time off his boards, used Nat Young as his test pilot, argued with yet shared ideas with Dick Brewer, and inspired Gerry Lopez, in one of the loveliest moments in the film, to declare that when he and others saw McTavish carve out a near-vertical line on a Sunset swell ‘everything changed’. Says Lopez: ‘He drew a line on a board that no-one still standing on a surfboard had ever done before.’ Robert Raymond started off to make a biopic of McTavish and he has included a hilarious section about the episode when McTavish and a mate stowed away on a passenger liner to Hawaii, free-surfed the North Shore for a fortnight, finally got arrested and sent back to Australia. But as the film developed it expanded into a wide-ranging

space to the Californians and the Hawaiians who were experimenting with shortboard design at much the same time – including Dick Brewer, the Hawaiian/US shaper who describes himself modestly as ‘a genius’ and Bob McTavish as ‘an idiot’! As veteran surfer Greg Noll comments exasperatedly: ‘What the shit is going on?’ For the next 80 minutes or so the film portrays the argument between the two rival camps via some fantastic footage of the heroes of the time, including Midget Farrelly, Gerry Lopez, Mike Hynson, Greg Noll himself, Nat Young, Rusty Miller, Bob Cooper, Wayne Lynch and others. It includes clips of the Gidget movies, takes of the stoned-and-acid era (‘I was stoned pretty much for eight hours every day,’ says Nat), interviews with John and Paul Witzig (who skilfully publicised the Aussie ‘power surfing’ style) through to brief sections on Kelly Slater and Mick Fanning, the modern gurus who inherited the surfboard revolution and who have brilliantly refined both the boards and the way they ride them. There are some historic shots of a young George Greenough surfing Lennox Head and other north coast beaches on his radical kneeboard ‘spoon’, which many people believe pioneered the shortboard era and virtually introduced the idea of vertical surfing.

Is it time to take your tablet? SHRED POTOMAC

The news riveting the IT world for at least the next 25 seconds is the arrival of the Apple iPad. Anyone would think Apple had just invented the computerr tablet. tablet. The term â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;tabletâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for this style of laptop computer, with or without a hinged lid, became more commonly used in 2001 when Microsoft launched into the market. The earlier emphasis was on the stylus but now has switched to the touch screen, like the ones Tom Cruise worked in Minority Report. (As an aside Microsoft also offers Surface www.microsoft.com/ surface, a kind of touchscreen coffee table, which is nowhere as groovy as SixthSense www. pranavmistry.com/projects/ sixthsense.) Apple has grabbed attention with its clever hype for what is essentially an iPhone on steroids. For the young and the cool, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got your iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on your phone, your tunes, and now your pad. The cheapest iPad launched in the States for $US499, which is about $539 in Australian dollars at the moment. By comparison, Dell offers its XT2 for $3,499 and the Fujitsu Lifebook SH560S comes in at $1,353.

So what does the iPad do? You can get the company rundown at www.apple.com. It looks like being a pretty web-friendly e-reader, which is great for those who want to download books and newspapers onto a touch screen which provides the sensation of turning pages virtually. It might even ďŹ nd a market with the sight-impaired older citizen who ďŹ nds not enough variety in large print books. As with the iPhone, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to download hundreds of third party apps, some of which will be useful. What doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it do? It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t support Adobe Flash, or have a USB port or a camera â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all fairly essential these days. The iPadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s touchscreen keyboard is still pretty small for big hands; a mechanical keyboard and dock is expected to be coming, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another cost. Contenders like Hewlett Packard, with its latest Slate, are set to capitalise on those â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;oversightsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by introducing other tablets later in the year. You can be sure there will also be cheap knockoffs of the iPad technology, as there was with the iPhone.

ow? Should you buy one now? The Australian retailer www.tabletpc.com.au gives a Try one out in a store. See good idea what the major players besides Apple have on what your impetuous friends offer. think of the one they queued for. The drawback in everything the latest in IT is it is only the latest until tomorrow.

Sure you can save a couple of dollars shopping around for cheaper prices on your expensive ink cartridges but those are tiny savings compared to buying a printer that has economical cartridges.

For instance I can sell you one ink cartridge with a 190 page printing rating for $27 or another one with a 2200 page rating for $55. You would have to buy five of the $27 cartridges at a cost of $135 to get less printing than the $55 cartridge. Basically the rule of thumb is that the cheaper the printer is to buy the more expensive it is to buy the ink. At Inky Business we are able to help with advice on finding you the right printer to suit your needs and wallet.

If you are sick of working out what shoes to wear with what outďŹ t, what shoes match with what pants, dresses and skirts, then why not let the sun decide for you? Well, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what Taiwanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Footwear and Recreation Technology Research Institute think, anyway. The clever people at the Institute have created leather shoes with a twist â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they have spray-on micro capsules that allow the shoes to change colour in the sun, and stay this way for a whopping 60 hours. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The leather shoesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; base colour is white, but within 30 seconds after coming into contact with sunlight, the colour gradually changes to pink, orange or purple, depending on the ingredients we spray on the leather,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Wang Jung-jen, one of the researchers at the Institute says. And this crazy new fashion is set to stay, with the Institute soon to launch colour changing handbags and bicycle seats! source: dvice.com

Man woman beast: hybrids Jane lands the big Fish Man Woman Beast is an exhibition of new works from Bangalow’s Michelle Dawson and Brisbane based Jan Van Dijk. Inspired by the fantastical creatures of myth and legend, the pair present a showcase of unexpected existence, from Dawson’s ‘Dr Moreau’s Kitten’ – with its leopard’s head, moth’s wings and serpent’s tail – to Van Dijk’s ‘Jack Reindeer’ – an evocative exploration of human animal hybrid forms. In addition to their individual drawings and paintings, the artists have collaborated on a ‘Make Your Own Beast’ series. Working with standard size canvas panels, they have each produced sets of interchangeable heads, torsos and tails that the public can interact with. Once a set of three panels has been selected and purchased, the newly created unique hybrid critter will be considered finished, and hung. Local artist Michelle Dawson was born in New Zealand, and moved to Australia in 1985. She has twice represented Australia in Romania, at the Intercontinental Biennial of Small Graphics, and in 2009 she was shortlisted for the Children’s Book Council of Australia Crichton Award for Best New Illustrator, for her work on the stunning children’s/art book how WEIRD is that..., created with local writer/musician Gyan. Michelle’s work invariably includes animals, although of late she says the creatures have begun to cross breed and hybridise. Her current predilections include Tasmanian tigers,

‘Jack Reindeer’, by Jan Van Dijk.

dodos, big cats, hyenas, crows, wings (on anything), fairytales, halos, pomegranates, Velasques ruffs, putti, stormy skies and monsters. Jan Van Dijk is a self-taught artist who credits his father and grandfather, both also artists, as his greatest inspiration and influence. At the age of 32, he has already amassed a significant body of work, gained national and international gallery representation (in Paris), and published two artist books. His brightly coloured mixed media works and paintings are an ode to the folk of the middle

ground, expressing in a single piece both profound regret and childlike hope. Man Woman Beast opens at Retrospect Galleries, Friday April 16, 6pm, and runs until May 3. The artists will also be drawing in the gallery on Saturday April 7, and available to talk about their work. More information on 6680 8825 or visit www.retrospectgalleries. com.

Ocean Shores author Jane Camens has won the prestigious Irish competition, the Fish Short Story Prize. Fish Publishing runs three annual writing contests – the Fish Short Story Prize, the Fish One-Page Prize and the Fish Poetry Prize. Renowned authors and poets lend their time to the judging process and select the shortlist of stories and poems from the three writing competitions to be published in an annual Fish Anthology. The anthology is launched during the West Cork Literary Festival (www.westcorkliteraryfestival. ie). This year the anthology will take the name of Jane’s story ‘A Matter of Luck’. ‘This year there was a “short” list of 140 stories out of a total of 1,800 entries from around the world,’ Jane told The Echo. ‘I knew at the beginning of March that I’d been shortlisted, but with so many on the list didn’t imagine I had a hope. ‘I knew the prize was due to be announced on March 17 (St Patrick’s Day) but I was so busy on the day I didn’t check. ‘At the time I was in Hong Kong at the literary festival there and it didn’t occur to me that the organisers might have been trying to contact me and wouldn’t have been able to get hold of me as they had my number in Ocean Shores. Two days later when I saw I had an email from Fish I figured they were just writing to let me know who won. Then I noticed it said “Urgent”! ‘When I worked out it wasn’t an early April Fool’s Day joke and that Mary McKillop had come good for me (may the saints be praised), I opened the first of many bottles of champagne I’ve since shared with friends. The prize is a generous

€3,000, of which €1,000 is for travel expenses to the launch of the anthology.) ‘Trouble is that at that time of year (July) it costs more than that to get to Ireland. As I’m the first Australian to enjoy the honour of this award, I contacted Qantas to see if they’d cover a ticket if I wrote a piece on the West Cork Literary Festival for their in-flight publication. They don’t seem to want my story for their inflight mag as they don’t go all the way to Ireland, but they’re giving me a ticket to London anyway, which is a bit like winning another prize. ‘For me this prize is very validating. I’ve had other short stories broadcast by the BBC World Service and run in overseas journals and anthologies

but never, regrettably, in Australia. I was beginning to feel my writing wasn’t good enough to make it into publication in this country. Now I realise that different people, different publishing houses, different countries possibly look for different things. ‘My mother came from Ireland, from County Cork. Going there to read at the festival feels to me a lovely way to remember her. The story isn’t however set in Ireland. It’s set in Macau.’ Q The anthology will be available from Fish (www.fishpublishing.com ) from July. Honorary patrons of the Fish Short Story Prize (www.fishpublishing.com/short-stories-news. php) are Roddy Doyle, Colum McCann and Dermot Healy.

Microbats are in a feeding frenzy Microbats are currently in a feeding frenzy as they fatten up on insects to see them through the coming winter. If they have taken up residence in your roof or walls, autumn is a good time for a gentle bat eviction before they bunk down for their winter hibernation. Australia’s Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife’s Backyard Buddies program is all about getting more enjoyment from native animals in your backyard. It provides tips and advice on how to make your backyard a haven for our insect-controlling microbat mates. ‘Microbats are much more common than you may think,’ says Ms Leonie Gale, CEO of the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife, which runs the Backyard Buddies program. ‘Right now, bats are eating as much as 40% of their own body weight in a single

<echowebsection=Articles>

night or several hundred insects per hour. ‘Many of our microbat species are hollow-dependent which means they live during the daylight hours inside the hollows of trees or branches. Competition from birds, possums and gliders, along with the clearing of many old trees, means that microbats may find the roof or walls of your home the perfect roosting place.’ The smallest microbat weighs only 3 grams – about the same as a single serve sugar sachet or a single A4 sheet of paper. If these tiny bats cannot find a suitable hollow, they can slip into gaps as small as 5mm and snuggle down in your roof and walls. This is why artificial roost sites are important as they provide an alternative. So what do you do if you find resident microbats sharing your home? Fortunately for the little bats, there are humane

ways to evict them and now is the time. ‘Byron Shire microbats are fully protected which might raise the issue of offences and penalties if any are in fact harmed,’ explains Ms Gale. ‘If done correctly, walls can become bat free and the little bats provided with an alternative roost site and retained in the backyard to go about their insect feeding work which is of great benefit to all of us.’ If you have microbats in your walls or roof, visit Bat Rescue Inc at www.batrescue. org.au for detailed information on how to remove them. If you have a photo of bats or any native plants or animals in your own backyard enter the ‘Show off your buddies’ photo competition. Simply visit www. backyardbuddies.net.au and click on the ‘Show off your buddies’ link and register to upload your photos. The monthly winner receives a prize. www.echo.net.au


Shearwater Recovery Group.... Working towards a Sustainable Future www.saveshearwater.com

Inspiring creativity in our community

Shearwater has over 650 students on campus from Pre-School to Year 12

On March 18, 2010 the Shearwater School was placed in voluntary administration by the Board. In response to recent changes in the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s income and an accumulated debt load, the new Board, as the only viable route forward, sought assistance from an accredited Administrator PPB (PBB.com.au) to restructure the Shearwater finances and to generate a path that will provide an accountable and sustainable future.

WISHES SHEARWATER EVERY SUCCESS FOR THE FUTURE. PROUDLY LOCALLY OWNED & OPERATED 62 STUART STREET, MULLUMBIMBY 6684 1377

Restructuring the debt load and building infrastructure and corporate governance into the new model will offer both sustainability and accountability for the future. A priority is to keep the teachers empowered to dedicate their energy and guidance to the 650 children at the school. The school is doing everything it can to deliver on this promise to all of the parents and every endeavour will be used to justify the trust our suppliers have placed in the school. The Recovery Group acknowledges and regrets that the school must share its burden with all that hold it dear. Please bear in mind all that Shearwater has given to the community over the last 17 years. The Recovery Group are overwhelmed and humbled by the heartwarming and generous support they have been offered in the last couple of weeks.

A L L Renee Searles was one of my greatest disappointments. She did my comedy course about six or seven years ago and she was astoundingly funny. As a teacher, you rarely come across such natural boundless talent, original, endearing, self deprecatory and very very human. Reneeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comedy was delicate and tender and at times it felt like I was watching the human embodiment of a Leunig cartoon. But that was not to be Ms Searlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; calling. Being a creative and passionate spirit Renee found her way to the ukulele and in a few short years sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not only mastered the tiny instrument, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crafted a body of work and released an album Lace Wings. Reneeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music is original, passionate, gypsy enthused tales of the heart. This is one renaissance woman. So did Renee know she could sing? She shyly admits, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I have always wanted to sing. But I have had no musical training. Nothing. I had a guitar that I carried around for 20 years and learnt two chordsâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; So why the ukulele? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The uke is just so accessible and not confronting, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an intimidating instrument. I had bought a uke in Perth when I was about 30 (about 15 years ago) because I met this woman who was busking â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we became friends, and she took me to a music shop and I carried it around for years, every house I moved to it was hanging on the wall!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Music had lain dormant in Renee her entire life. It just took one little instrument to cause a creative eruption. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like I had something sitting inside of me and I just had to wait until it was ready to come out. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know that at the time and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say I was deeply frustrated by it. It was when I started to do the comedy, that I understood I was a performerâ&#x20AC;Ś â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I went to Mookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beginnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Uke class and I started learning cover songs, and within three or four months Paddy from Bay FM said why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you write a song? And I said, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea, and I went home that night and wrote a song and I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stopped! â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I have been writing for more than 25 years, mainly journals, but it was like I

didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realise I was a writerâ&#x20AC;Ś all these things were there, and I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realise that they were valuable â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know they were worth anything!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Renee is a self confessed romantic. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Writing music is like a doorway into that inner world where all the dreams are and you can navigate the unknown unfathomable things that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put into words. A song might start off about love and romance and then it ends up being about you about the mystery of life and how fabulous it isâ&#x20AC;Ś and for me everything comes from a very feminine place and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defintiely about being a woman and my connection to other women.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Renee is coy about her album and her songwriting. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I want the songs to be mysteries like little lands that you visit and you write a song about something and before you know it itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about that mundane thing anymore, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about the bloke you fancied who dumped you itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grander and more mysterious â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what art is â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you take something ordinary and you investigate and dive in there and discover whole other countries and planetsâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lace Wings was recorded with Oles Krolikowski at the studios of Christian Pyle. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It was wonderful meeting Oles because I feel like he understands the way I work and he brings such beauty to the music â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we share a great sense of humour and I feel so blessed, he came along at the beginning â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he listens beautifully; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not afraid of that space. Christian is also a fabulous producer.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Renee launches Lace Wings at the Drill Hall on Friday and will be joined on stage by her musical co-conspirators, Oles, Christian, Stuart Beaumont and Cye Wood. Robbie and Oles will be doing a support and apparently the night includes a very special once in a life time surpriseâ&#x20AC;Ś. To check out Reneeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music go to myspace.com/reneesearles Tickets are $20 at the door or at Brunswick Health foods. Show starts at 7pm.

Underground Sound Zulya and the Children of the Underground bring their unique Russian gypsy sound to the Starcourt Theatre in Lismore on Tuesday April 13 and Wednesday 14. This internationally acclaimed outfit create melancholy, beauty and drama while weaving through a combination of musical styles.

I have four children to three different blokes, and frankly, I thought commitment was a band encouraging me to Ride Sally ride, so, I did. Now sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pregnant. I am overweight. I despise exercise. I make up excuses about why I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go. Fit people bore me. I spend too much money on clothes. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t open bills. I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay anything unless I get a disconnection notice. I loathe budgeting. I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use self service petrol pumps. I hate gardening. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a feminist but I still wait for a man to put my bin out. I sulk about doing the dishes. I feel that my life would be better if I owned expensive shoes. At 42 I have no savings, no super and I still live in a rented house. I once went seven years without lodging a tax return. I drive too fast. I back into things. I use parking tickets as toilet paper. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t compost. I only eat hormone filled chicken because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a cheap way to get breast augmentation. I think meditation is just another way of saying I have no ideas. When I have sex with my partner I fantasise that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m someone else. With these very impressive personal attributes, it dawned on me backdrop that features brass arrangements; Tom Waits inspired tunes and mallet percussion, plus newer sounds courtesy of percussion loops, manipulated piano tunes and hurdy-gurdy.

YOUTH WEEK COMEDY AND TRIVIA PARTY Presented by BUDDI FASHION COURSE CERT 2 WITH TAFE Commencing Tuesday April 20 Call Mel for details or email links@bys.org.au

Some of you will remember the bleary eyed cult members of Course of Miracles, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thinking of running a similar program called The Curse of Disappointment. We celebrate the constant random erosion of faith through tiny daily disappointments and embrace the only reliable constant: our eternal ordinariness. Instead of learning to let go, we put on the tracksuit and let ourselves go. True liberation only comes once the spirit is broken, and I reckon, with some of my techniques, I could break your spirit in a few days. The Queen of unconditional love, Amma, the super loving hugging guru who was fed biscuits by a cow has just scooted through, and I am considering elevating my life coaching to a similar guru-like status. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m up for the whole guru racket. I will be an Aussie version of the Mother, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be offering conditional love, a clip round the ear and a cold kiss on the cheek. My deep spiritual advice: get over yourself. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a nobody. Like the rest of us. Now hand me that Mayan Calendar, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m counting down the apocalypse with advent chocolates.

that I am exactly the right sort of person for life coaching. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m unqualified, opinionated and overbearing. I was born to think for other people. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve read The Echo classies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to move on from this peace loving tree hugging vegetarian path of love elitism we call personal development. I am advocating a whole new school of spiritual life coaching. I call it â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Realistic Coachingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. It starts with some basic affirmations like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;NO YOUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;RE NOT GOOD ENOUGH. IN FACT YOUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;RE AN IDIOTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; And as you suspected, when it comes to receiving love I will be ringing them with the message, forget it, GIVE UP, YOU ARE NOT WORTHY. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be encouraging people not to follow their dreams. Just because you want to be an artist, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a viable pursuit. Buy a paint brush, take up a hobby, but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up your day job. Someone has to work at the fruit shop, clean toilets, and make coffee. For every Leonardo da Vinci thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a million Homer Simpsons. Ironically, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Homer who touches our hearts, I reckon Da Vinci would have been an overachieving wanker anyway, kind of like a smug 15th Century version of Richard Branson.

CinemaReviews Date Night Do you remember the episode of Seinfeld in which Jerry and George arrive at an airport and, for a lark, take the chauffeur-driven limo that is awaiting a passenger by the name of Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brien? That idea is shamelessly plagiarised (or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;appropriatedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;) to kick start this occasionally amusing but mostly ham-fisted, productionline dross. In the TV show (has Go! broken the world record for repeating it to the point where even rusted-on fans have had enough?), Jerry and George get mixed up with a bunch of Ayrian supremacists as a result of their misadventure. Here we have Claire and Phil Foster, a New Jersey Mom and Dad, out on the town attempting to inject some zing into a marriage that is in the doldrums (and yes, we get the mandatory joke about how many

times a week they â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;do itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;). At an exclusive Manhattan eatery, they put their hands up and pretend to be the Tripplehorns, thus pinching a table reserved for some shady characters and inadvertently falling foul of the Mob and a pair of homicidal but bungling NYPD cops who are in the pocket of the corrupt DA. The story, if not original, still has loads of potential, but the hare-brained plotting, which sees Phil and Claire jumping from the frying pan into the fire at every turn, kills that potential stone dead. It is what used to be called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;madcapâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; humour, meaning that it is also ridiculously implausible, and how low it might have sunk without the effortless comic talents of Tina Fey and Steve Carell is anybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guess. Admittedly, there are some beaut set pieces â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the spoof of two A-listers bullying the restaurant receptionist (Fey

in trans-continental lorries that are about to enter the UK via the Channel tunnel. To be re-united with his girlfriend Mina (Derya Ayverdi), already with her family in London, Bilal, having trekked fourthousand miles to get this far, strikes upon the idea of swimming the last leg of his epic journey â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the white cliffs of Dover are tantalizingly in view. At the local pool he meets Simon (Vincent Lindon), a former champion who is now a swimming instructor. Coping poorly with rejection himself after splitting with his wife Marion (Audrey Dana), Simon takes Bilal under his wing and, during his tutelage of the young man, the two form a bond of wary friendship. For the intimacy that grows between them, Simon is liable to be charged with the offence of giving comfort to an illegal â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the film has helped bring about amendments to that Draconian

law â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but he understands the ways of the heart and that Bilal must be with Mina. Simonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is the character that will evolve most and craggy-faced, smokyvoiced Lindon is terrific in the part. Firat Ayverdi looks perfect as the single-minded Bilal and his performance is touching for its ingenuousness, whilst his sister Derya is captivating as Mina. The closing shot of a foreigner, Cristiano Ronaldo, scoring for Manchester United, the club of Bilalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aspirations, is, like the movieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s title, heavily loaded in its symbolism but affecting nonetheless for its exposure of the cruel double standards by which an outsiderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth is assessed. With classy, uncomplicated cinematography and a piano score that only occasionally slips from tenderness to moroseness, this is one you shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss. Check it out at Mullum Flicks. ~ John Campbell

The Home of Quality Cinema is a brilliant mimic), and Phil and Claireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pole dancing are classic, but did we really need a screaming, screeching, excruciating car chase? A more appealing alternative for director Shawn Levy (who should have played to his strengths and concentrated on A Night At The Museum 3) would have been to turn the project into a gore fest and have the bad guys hack up the Fostersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; revolting children. The credits roll with a collection of out-takes, all featuring Steve and Tina putting the crew in stitches â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you never see supporting actorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bloopers, perhaps because they are not so ebulliently received by the sycophants on set. Among those credits is one for Mark Wahlbergâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s costumer, an irony more subtle than anything that preceded it, for Wahlberg does every one of his scenes shirtless and in a pair of black trackies. ~ John Campbell FULLY AIR-CONDITIONED EVERY WED ALL SEATS ALL SESSIONS $8 ONLY

Welcome Absurd though it may sound, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possibly more satisfying to discount the political, social and moral issues that underpin this film and regard it primarily as a beautiful love story. Bilal (Firat Ayverdi), a stateless Iraqi Kurd hoping to reach England, is exactly the type of individual whom Western liberals, living privileged lives far from the madding crowd, need to see as an innocent at the mercy of xenophobic and racist officialdom â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it helps to prop up our self-righteousness. Because he reduces (or elevates?) it to the intensely personal, French director Phillip Lioretâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approach to the confronting problem of the new diaspora of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poor and downtrodden is sympathetic but simplistic. He has set his drama in wintry Calais, where scores of young men from Africa and the Middle East are daily rounded up attempting to stow away

for you is processed into material? Pretty much everything that happens to me that I think I can make funny goes in the show. I mean, who makes up jokes about gettinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; malaria and havinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; colonic irrigations? How do you maintain your passion for performanceâ&#x20AC;Ś whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your secret to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;keeping it freshâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;? Lotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s of travel, so I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get bored, and I recommend moving to another country and starting again from the bottom, to get your mojo back! (I did that moving to the US.) As a comic myself I was always surprised by how men get mobbed by women after gigs but all the female comedians tend to go home aloneâ&#x20AC;Ś do you think being a comedian and being a woman is intimidating for oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s male suitors? Hell yes! Men think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll talk about them in your act, if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bad, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re right! Are funny women sexy? I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sexy, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I opted to be funny, but you can be both. I just ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Have you always had a lot to say? What kind of kid were you? I was mouthy, naughty, loud, a show off â&#x20AC;&#x201C; perfect lab-made comedian. How much of that kid that was you takes the stage every night? A hundred per cent of it. Still a big showoff Are you a goal setter or a just go with the flow kind of girl? When I started doing comedy, I just went with the flow, and just enjoyed it for what it was. Then I discovered how much money you could make, and my competitive streak kicked in, and I started setting career goals, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in showbiz. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like after a certain number of years, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get that promotion. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not accountants. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s down to tenacity, luck, hard work, luck, hard work and more luck! Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just back enjoying myself again, and more seems to

be happening now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just relaxed. What are the challenges that you have to face on a daily basis? People thinking all black comics talk about is sex ( I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t), race (just a little), and as a woman â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all I talk about is boyfriends (oh, pleaseâ&#x20AC;Ś ) and my periods (oh for Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sake). As a comedian do you still see areas in your work that you want to conquer, or change or refine? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m always wanting to change and refine and improve, if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, then you are no longer growing. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your perfect audience? Big small, old young, black white, women, men? One that laughs long and loud! Complete this sentence â&#x20AC;Ś in the next ten years Gina Yashere will beâ&#x20AC;Ś Rich, very rich!

There are advantages to be had in falling through a skylight into a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bedroom, as the male lead discovers in the comic fantasy Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Look Down (SBS1, Friday, 11.15pm), which cuts through temporal and spatial dimensions like a hot knife through butter. 2. Nineties hotties Elisabeth Shue and Val Kilmer steam it up in The Saint (TEN, Saturday, 8.30pm), Leslie Charterisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fictional hero who was bedding all and sundry long before James Bond.

Dear Man, You are the active pole on earth and needed like the sun â&#x20AC;&#x201C; shining with honest care, in love, on to a woman. She is like the earth â&#x20AC;&#x201C; she receives, she gives, she knows. We are this beautiful life. In this self-made world man learned to show off, it is easy for you but are you brave enough to stand up for love? Be true â&#x20AC;&#x201C; be simple and give your honest love and care and make sweetly and rightly love to her. It is a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s delight and need to grow with you and glow in love. It is your most fulfilling task. For this to be, you will have to give up selfish, restless sex. Be still, drop your demand, enjoy moment to moment life. Love life. Do you excite yourself with sex-thought? It overstimulates you. It makes you dishonest in love, so you just take, but you should ask and learn to give right love. We are influenced as a child... take a drug, get used to sex, be sexy, show off, be greedy, give your attention to the newest invention, get excited... nothing will be good enough for long and such greediness supports the sex business. Worldwide he manipulates young women to play sexy for him, to be his sex object and if she makes sex with such a selfish demanding ungiving man it makes her like him. Infected and made discontent, both feel dependent on stimulation, for in truth they have not made love and so they say â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s have some fun with a drug...â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Hey man, give up, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just take what you want, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just take love! You have to give to a woman. Lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love is her gift to you, if you have earned it. A woman today can be honest to man. If he is not honest, do not give to him, wait until he demonstrates true love. If you are honest, moment to moment and give to what is good and right, you simply feel well from the inside. With such a woman of love, you will listen to her carefully. Love is easily broken, it has to be made fresh, new, no other body belongs to you. Each of us has to stand up for love. Life felt inside is reflected in beautiful earth, universe â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I belong to you. From a Woman.

Mungo’s Crossword

Change rules the day here on the earth plane, and exuberant midweek Aries new moon chants the mantra: change is exciting, it makes me feel alive…

WITH LILITH

ARIES: The buzzword for your annual new moon in Aries is new: new friends, new path, new ways of operating, new ideas, new projects, new attitude of gratitude… so focus clearly, clarify and then write down five things you most dearly want to achieve this year. TAURUS: If you’ve been wondering where the money went and who hasn’t, this week’s optimistic new moon inspires a bolder, more creative approach to the dollar-making department, with late week moon in your sign adding plenty of energy for putting these ideas into action. GEMINI: The stars are on your side right now so follow your business instincts because your articulate, convincing, dollars and cents sense will make any pitch hard to resist. Mercury’s misbehaving though, so keep checking that you haven’t overlooked or missed anything important.

CANCER: In an indulgent, homey, private kind of mood just wanting to do what brings you the most pleasure? Sorry, but enthusiastic midweek moon strikes sparks in your career zone which definitely encourage taking action – and you are one of the zodiac’s cardinal movers and shakers.

LIBRA: As midweek new moon activates your cardinal, takecharge side, you might find yourself wanting solo time and thinking me instead of we and us. The planet Chiron’s about to initiate some deep healing in the life of Librans, so just relax and it won’t hurt a bit.

LEO: Objectivity’s taking a holiday, but don’t let that drive you to drink, angst, or round the bend. If blame, accusation and criticism are uppermost in what you want to convey this week, try googling nonviolent communication websites for more gracious ways of saying it.

SCORPIO: This week wants you walking the fine line between firm and determined on one hand, closed and stubborn on the other. Be prepared to say sorry if you’ve caused upset – and mean it. The advice for fellow fixed sign Leo also applies.

VIRGO: This week calls for more liveliness and variety in your daily routines, a change being as good as a holiday. Speaking of which, how about a vacation, a little trip away? This week’s astral energies suggest putting on your practical hat and making it happen.

SAGITTARIUS: This week speaks its mind, though you mightn’t like everything it has to say about the credibility gap between your actual life and your splendid unused potential. Though to be fair, that’s because a whole new Sagittarian gestalt is currently in pre-production.

CHESS by Ian Rogers

Australia’s biggest and best Grand Prix tournament, the O2C Doeberl Cup, concluded this week with victory for the top seed, China’s Li Chao. The 48th edition of Canberra’s annual Easter tournament established a series of records, with 250 players, among them 10 Grandmasters, competing in four divisions. Li looked to be a class above the other players in the tournament, racing to 6.5/7 on the back of a series of long and difficult end-

Play at Byron Services Club, Mon 7-10pm game victories and then coasting efforts to unbalance the game to the title with two short draws. rebounded badly and when the Australia’s George Xie (pictured first time control was reached on left) finished just half a point move 40, Xie’s winning chances behind Li and was rewarded with were zero. Kunte could force a his third and final Grandmaster draw by perpetual check or play ‘norm’. Xie now needs to raise his for a win in a number of ways. However now Xie enjoyed an world ranking by just 10 points to become the fifth Grandmaster in incredible stroke of luck. After thinking for five minutes, Kunte Australia’s history. Sydney’s Xie, who is study- played a ‘safe’ move which lost ing to become an Anglican mis- his queen and the game immedisionary, started the Doeberl Cup ately.

CAPRICORN: Midweek new moon fosters rearranging domestic priorities plus a bit of a financial lick and touch up before Mercury’s weekend retrograde. If you feel you’re doing lots and achieving little, it’s because this is a time for reassessment and rebuilding rather than results. AQUARIUS: Dynamic midweek new moon brings a breakthrough, a significant shedding of your old self for this year’s new, improved model to power you through any periods of doubt about your ideas or suggestions being appreciated, accepted and acted on this week. PISCES: While this is an out and about week, it’s still highly advisable to avoid strife, arguments, volatile situations or controlling people wanting to wrangle. And if others start communicating like flame throwers, just remember the cooler you keep, the sweeter your week.

THE GOURMET STATE NSW has once again been confirmed as Australian gourmets’ favourite state, notching up more than a third of the entries on Australian Traveller Magazine’s ‘100 Greatest Australian Gourmet Experiences’ list recently published. Sydney – and more generally NSW – is being promoted through a collaboration of the NSW Government and some of the State’s top chefs as Australia’s premier restaurant and fine dining destination. Each year Australian Traveller Magazine compiles a ‘top 100’ list for the travel industry, calling for nominations from the industry and readers which are then reviewed by a panel of experts to arrive at the top 100. This year the list included Maggie Beer, Matt Moran, Peter Russell-Clarke and Alla Wolf-Tasker. The results follow on from NSW’s dominance at the 2010 Awards for Australian Gourmet Traveller in August last year, which saw nine Sydney restaurants receiving a ‘three star’ rating compared with only one in Melbourne. Regional NSW also performed extremely well.

The elixier of the blackcurrant god Shred Potomac

Hercule Balgan led me into his cellar and sat me down at a simple deal table among his impressive racks of wines and liqueurs. It was not something you would expect to find beneath his simple house in Marvell Street, despite the ornate flourishes the poet Marvell was sometimes given to. From the racks he drew a bottle of Védrenne’s crème de cassis, rich as blood in colour, and poured a soupçon into two glass tumblers. We toasted each other’s health; the liqueur filled my throat with its warm presence. ‘I was drawn to crème de cassis because of my namesake,’ Balgan began. ‘As you know, Agatha Christie’s little detective was very fond of it. ‘It is made of blackcurrants crushed into refined alcohol and then charged up with sugar. ‘It tastes in a way of cough syrup,’ I ventured, ‘but much nicer once you get the full effect.’ Balgan scowled at my description, but continued: ‘Much nicer for your digestion, too. As you know, the French favour kir, made with crème de cassis and white wine, as an apéritif. ‘There are all sorts of spurious legends, of course – is not “spurious legends” a tautology? – about it being created by an inspired monk in a medieval abbey, but it was simply a business innovation in the Burgundy region in the 1840s. Its precursor, though, ratafia de cassis, was something of a peasant concoction dating back to the 17th century and flavoured with bitter almonds, or peach or cherry kernels. The reason for the change to blackcurrants seems straightforward: all these kernels contain dangerous levels of hydrogen cyanide. Perhaps it is Christie’s little joke to make the safer version a favourite of her Poirot. ‘If you insist in making ratafia, however, you can use instead fresh fruit and herbs. Take a bottle of red – white is for philistines – a

Mix together in a large jar and refrigerate for three to four weeks, then strain into a clean wine bottle and cork or cap it tightly. Keep refrigerated. I don’t know why you would bother, though – crème de cassis is a far superior product.’ I had not insisted on making ratafia, or anything of that sort, but Balgan was carried away by his own eloquence. ‘What of the tale of the blackcurrant god the villagers used to leave offerings to in East Anglia?’ I asked. ‘Nothing to do with crème de cassis,’ he replied dismissively. That seemed the end of that line of inquiry. Nevertheless Balgan happily poured me another libation and we each inwardly toasted our own private gods before I returned to the quotidian of Marvell Street.

The news recently that Spainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ground-breaking restaurant El Bulli is to close in 2012 left me unmoved. Despite every single review, remark and critique of the place being fulsomely glowing, I never wanted to go. When I think about eating in Spain I think of calamari and rosĂŠ consumed on rocks overlooking ocean at dusk, a memory which gives pleasure still. Foams, soils, dusts â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the whole molecular movement whereby food stops being food and is reinvented as a series of sensory challenges and scientific experiments may indeed be reshaping the way we think about cooking and eating, may be leading us toward exciting new flavour- and texturecombinations and techniques one day taken for granted. Progress, after all, is inevitable in all forms and should not be stubbornly resisted out of sentimentality. There I was on Easter Day sitting in a strip of a Spanish restaurant in gaudy old Surfers Paradise, thinking these thoughts, but mostly conscious of being in precisely the sort of eating establishment I love best. Reluctant to wander too far from our respectable hotel, mellowed and a little heady after sunset drinks at the dizzying top of the Q1 building where a bald guitarist reinterpreted â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;80â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hits in the voice of a castrato, or at least

an angel, we found ourselves part of a pulsating neon-lit surge of Easter carousers. Restaurant after restaurant gaped cavernously at us â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the couple walking too quickly, too uneasily past each â&#x20AC;&#x201C; fizzing and frothing out the shrieks of people who may have started celebrating Easter with morning schooners in a club. Malay, Italian pizza, Chinese aeafood, Indonesian, Mexican: enormous rooms spilling out onto the pavement, garishly lit, families at endlessly long tables, waiters rushing harriedly, sirens in the distance. I had put my foot down regarding the all-you-can-eat buffet at our hotel; had even extravagantly suggested we order room service-something â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a $30 house burger or a cheese plate curled up with a DVD would have suited me beautifully. And because we could not agree here we were striding through the masses in the frail hope that somewhere would call out to us and lure us in. Suddenly, somewhere did. A simple sign saying â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;La Paellaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, a narrow space into which we gratefully escaped, tables mostly occupied but oh the joy of one which was not, and an elderly waiter smiling his way towards us. We sat by the wall from whence I had the view of the bar, a tiny corner space with hanging glasses and a clutter of bottles. Seating close together

induced cosiness rather than claustrophobia. Musical instruments and predictable posters â&#x20AC;&#x201C; bullfights, Gaudi â&#x20AC;&#x201C; adorned the walls; the menu a list of old-fashioned Spanish dishes. There seemed only the one courteous old Spanish waiter somehow managing the entire floor on his own and yet our requests were met instantly. Olives and warm bread to fill the space of a 20-odd minute wait for our zarzuela, Catalan seafood stew. A glass of faintly effervescent rosado translucent strawberry red to help slide down the bottomless bowl of garlicky olives â&#x20AC;&#x201C; too many to finish. And then our stew: a wide shallow vessel placed with ceremony on the upper level of a two-tiered stand, empty bowl for shells beneath. A rich scarlet bath of bobbing seafood: clams and mussels, fat prawns and calamari, white fish chunks and paprika, bread dunked in and shells slurped. It was lovely; it held us briefly in its grip but long enough for me to have one of those rare moments of forgetting where I was, of removing me quite completely from where I was. So that when we re-entered the voluble, hectic tawdriness of it all â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the shrill streetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cacophony, the hooting hordes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that feeling carried us safely and sweetly back to our respectable hotel.

Where else can you get a kilo of fresh organic Tasmanian mussels, hand-cut fries, a salad and dessert all for $29? All prepared by a French chef fresh off the boat from Lyon whose daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head was touched by Paul Bocuse. Where do you get it?

The Ocean Shores Ladies Golfers hosted the annual OSMUR Shield on Tuesday April 6 at the Ocean Shores Country Club.. This event is hosted in alternate years at the Ocean Shores and Murwillumbah clubs. It has come to pass that generally, it is the hosting club who wins on the day and this year was no different. After 20 Murwillumbah and 60 Ocean Shores ladies battled it out in fairly muggy and hot conditions, it was Murwillumbah Captain Marilyn Parkes’ turn to hand over the shield to Ocean Shores Captain Bev Wingad after the tournament. Ocean Shores put in a fantastic effort to ensure the trophy sat on their shelf for the next 12 months, winning the Shield 540 to 473 points.

Splashing about Gosford ‘in a frenzy’ Easter boat safety results

The Gosford Sailing Club ran a great series for the 72 entrants in the 46th annual State Championships for NS14 sailing dinghies. Moderate south easterly winds allowed all six heats to

run, over the four Easter holidays. There were three boats from the Richmond River club in Ballina, including local sailor Duncan Dey from Main Arm, who sailed craft 1945 ‘in

a frenzy’ with a new crew, his nephew Tim from Newcastle. City boats dipped out, the series was won convincingly by Robert Fish and Cassie Cause from Taree. The second place

winners were from Teralba on Lake Macquarie and third from Queens Lake. Duncan and Tim claimed fifth place overall, missing out by only half a point on fourth and 1.5 points on third. Point scoring is similar to a golf tournament: the lowest score wins with one point awarded per boat ahead of you in each race. A half point involves a tie when crossing the finish line. Competition was close in all heats. Other Ballina club boats included Bob Engwirda and Zac Heuchmer, both of Ballina, who finished 32nd and Chris and Nick Larsen of Tugun came in 55th. Duncan also picked up his favourite award: best Veteran Skipper. Duncan, who was very chuffed with his award, commented that it pays to be over 50. The Ballina boats will now head back to local waters for the finish to the season. The Richmond River club runs training sessions twice a year. Check richmondriver. yachting.org.au next season for dates.

Results from the statewide Easter Boating Campaign ‘Operation Safe Speed’ found boaters on the North Coast waterways were mostly abiding by speed restrictions, however more needed to comply with safety equipment rules. Minister for Ports and Waterways, Paul McLeay, said NSW Maritime checked 357 vessels on waterways from Foster to Tweed Heads during the campaign. ‘The Easter long weekend marks the close of the boating season and is also one of the busiest periods of the season,’ he said. ‘Tragically, over the weekend two competitors in the Taree Easter Classic power boat races died in separate incidents during the races. The incidents are being investigated by Police with assistance from NSW Maritime.’ Mr McLeay said on-the-spot fines and formal warnings were issued to 57 skippers on the North Coast, most for missing safety equipment. ‘I congratulate the 84 per cent of boaters who are complying with safety rules, though this compliance rate can be im-

proved,’ Mr McLeay said. Convenor of the Country Labor Parliamentary Group, Christine Robertson said Boating Safety Officers spoke to boaters about the importance of travelling at safe speeds and complying with speed restrictions. ‘Boating Safety Officers patrol the waterways across the year, so go over and ask them anything you’re not sure about, they’re there to give information and keep everyone safe,’ Ms Robertson said. Mr McLeay said of the total fines and warnings issued over the long weekend, the single biggest category was failing to have the required safety equipment such as lifejackets, paddles, oars, buckets and fire extinguishers on board. ‘Don’t wait for a fine to become educated about boating safety. You’re the skipper, you’re responsible, make sure you’re informed,’ said Mr McLeay. Info on boating safety is in the Boating Handbook available from NSW Maritime service centres, call the Info Line on 13 12 56 or visit the web site www.maritime.nsw.gov.au.

Footy can be a pain in the neck (and back and shoulders) Footy’s back and no matter which code you subscribe to the those in the know are forecasting a surge in sports-related injuries over coming weeks. According to the Chiropractors’ Association of Australia (CAA) spokesperson, sports chiropractor Dr Peter Garbutt, Aussie Rules tops the injury list with rugby, soccer and netball also taking a toll on players during the pre-season and early rounds. ‘Hamstring injuries are most common at this time of the year, especially in the faster running sports such as soccer, rugby, AFL and hockey, as ‘weekend warriors’ return after the off-season break,’ says Dr Garbutt. ‘Back problems are also a major issue and can be intertwined with hamstring injuries, whereby one injury can trigger the other.’ Footballers in particular, appear to be more susceptible to low back pain. A study published last year by Dr Garbutt and colleagues found that footballers in Australia have significantly more severe and frequent low back pain compared with non-athletes and this escalates with the level of competition. Low back pain is the most common injury reported in elite soccer and back injuries have the highest rate of recurrence for all injuries in elite rugby players. Shoulder injuries are also rife amongst rugby league players. In Aussie Rules the injury toll is high, even amongst the amateurs with 27 per cent reporting long term or recurrent back problems. www.echo.net.au

To minimise the injury risk Dr Garbutt recommends a holistic approach to getting ready for the game. This includes regular maintenance, good nutrition, appropriate warm up and warm down protocols including stretching after a game, being prepared with a proper training regime, easing back into exercise after a break and hydration on the field. Dr Garbutt also recommends that anyone returning to sport after a break consider a visit to their local chiropractor to tune up their body and make sure it is ready to go for the season. ‘No matter what sport you play, you will be placing your body under structural stress,’ he warned. ‘There are benefits to be had in ensuring your body has a regular tune up and is ready to perform at its peak – in the same way that you would regularly book your car in for a service.’

… and the head Recent studies have also shown that there may be a direct link between sports injuries and dementia. Concussion is not an uncommon sport injury and surveyed players who have had concussions report more problems with memory, concentration, speech impediments, headaches and other neurological problems than those who had not. Neurologists say once a person suffers a concussion, he is as much as four times more likely to sustain a second one. An American woman, Dr. Eleanor Perfetto has filed a claim on behalf of her husband, Ralph Wenzel, contending that his dementia at 67 is related to his career as an NFL lineman from 1966 to 1973.

rack seven kilometres west from the bright lights of the Gold Coast and you hit a low-lying patch of lush green hinterland where a quiet revolution in urban living is taking shape. The dozen or so completed homes and 20-odd construction sites in Currumbin Ecovillage may not look revolutionary nestled against 110 hectares of native bush and gurgling creeks. But they are the first wave of houses in a residential community that was named the world’s best environmental development at the real-estate industry’s equivalent of the Olympic Games. The Ecovillage beat more than 100 international commercial and residential developments to claim the International Real Estate Federation’s highest award, the Prix d’Excellence. ‘It’s a dream come true because we originally set out to create a benchmark project to role model sustainability and inspire the world,’ founder Chris Walton said. Mr Walton’s dream first came to him and partner Kerry Shepherd

THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN DREAM UNDER PRESSURE The Great Australian Dream, which has been growing in size for decades, will come under pressure from several areas to become smaller, more sustainable and affordable, says Archicentre, the building advisory service of the Australian Institute of Architects. Angus Kell, ACT and NSW State Manager of Archicentre, said the population debate would provide a major focus on the lack of affordable housing, land and the need to rethink the size and design of Australian homes given the current low level of housing affordability. ‘The financial stress of people over committing on their housing purchases has seen 25,000 home buyers default on their loans in the past twelve months, according to the Reserve Bank statistics.’ Mr Kell said while the debate may focus on smaller, well designed homes where every

der conventional planning is made up of 80 per cent freehold residential and 20 per cent open space,’ Ecovillage spokesman Martin Jackson said. ‘We did the complete opposite of that and have 20 per cent residential and 80 per cent open space.’ Now nearing the end of the three land releases, green-minded families can still be a part of Ecovillage, although membership comes at a price. The cheapest block of land now sells for $450,000. Mr Jackson said residents had built houses for anywhere between $150,000 and $650,000. ‘When we started selling [in 2005] we sold below market value to ensure we had a range of socioeconomic backgrounds in the community,’ Mr Jackson said.
