Yacht bequest fills maritime museum’s sails with hope ‘Few’ oppose BY ERIN PEARSON A BEQUEST of a five-metre yacht could help Queenscliffe Martime Museum set sail for a brighter future, according to its secretary. June Negri said the donation of former member Ron Scotland, who died recently, meant “so much” to the museum. She expected the yacht to raise about $2000 at the museum’s annual swap meet this weekend. The yacht, Thistle of Leopold, included sails and an outboard motor, she said. “It was Ron’s wish that the yacht be donated to raise funds.” Ms Negri said the maritime museum raised around $4000 at last year’s swap meet. “Queenscliffe Maritime Museum does not receive any funding from the State Government so events such as this play a big part in helping the museum survive.” Ms Negri said Queenscliff Harbour staff moved the yacht off its mooring and washed it down last week so it would be ready for sale. Another three yachts, also around five metres in length, would be for sale at the swap meet, she said. Other items for sale would include boat and yacht fittings, maritme books, memorabilia, model boats, anchors and buoys. “On sale will be everything of a maritime and nautical nature,” Ms Negri said. The museum would use proceeds for conservation and display works. The swap meet and collectables fair will run from 9am to 1pm Sunday at the museum.

BY KIM WATERS QUEENSCLIFF residents have slammed an “overzealous few”, accusing the town of a boozy culture. Queenscliff Lonsdale Business and Tourism Association president Graham Christie defended the number of licensed venues in the town. Mr Christie said Queenscliff was “fortunate” to have local attractions “where the owners take the serving of alcohol very seriously”. He was responding to the claims of Queenscliff Community Association’s Joan Kenwood in last week’s Independent that “unnecessary” licensed venues were destroying the town’s atmosphere. Ms Kenwood criticised Queenscliffe Borough council permission for a “cafe/deli” and a “fish and chippery” to sell alcohol on their premises at Queenscliff Harbour as “irresponsible” and “unnecessary”. Mr Christie said the town’s licensed venues supported a community bus initiative to ferry patrons to their homes and accommodation “in safety”. “Despite an overzealous few, this is a great place to live or visit, and we welcome people to enjoy our remarkable coastal villages, that irrefutably declare classic as our signature marketing slogan,” he said. Mr Christie said a liquor accord guided responsible management of alcohol sales in Borough of Queenscliffe. “This location is one of the key experience destinations in Australia and we’re proud of the contribution the majority of our community make toward the future aspirations of such a magical place.”

don’t at all. If you’re riding with younger children, who make up a majority of the riders down here, it’s a major danger. Councillors “noted” the study at their meeting last week. Mayor John Mitchell said the study estimated at least 330 horse riders were based on the peninsula, most of whom supported development of a trails network.

“The study determined there was a lack of north/south linear open space corridors on the Bellarine Peninsula,” he said. “In order to establish a network of horse trails, a combination of public roads and public land is needed, including permission from public land managers.

“I’m really hoping to see an improvement in facilities on the Bellarine Peninsula from the study. Any horse rider would say that at the moment it’s dangerous.” Ms Faulkner said unsigned roads shared between cars and horses were a “great risk”, particularly for children on ponies. “Some cars will slow down for horse riders but there are a lot that

Council set for ‘final’ appointment of mayor

real people fast cash!

BY KIM WATERS GEELONG’S final council-elected mayor will be revealed on Monday night, according to a State Government spokesperson. The spokesperson for Premier-elect Ted Baillieu said implementation of a coalition pre-election promise of popularly-elected Geelong mayors would begin after Monday’s vote between councillors. The new State Government would begin a community consultation process in 2011 to establish the process for Geelong residents to choose their own mayor. “The electors will be the community,” the spokesperson said. “It’s a process we’re completely committed to.”

The spokesperson said next week’s mayor would have a maximum term of one year rather than the two years available under existing regulations. “We don’t have legislation in place yet but there will be a term limit. It is understood that the State Government will limit the term of the new Geelong mayor to one year and consult with the Geelong community within that 12month period.” Councillor Andy Richards said the existing system and a popularly elected process both had merit. “Let’s see what the State Government puts on the table,” Cr Richards said. “There are plusses and minuses with both the current system and a popularly elected mayor.”

A 12-YEAR-OLD Newcomb boy has raised a third of the proceeds from an annual fundraising swim for victims of a disease afflicting his mother. Haydon Loader finished last weekend’s 24 Hour Mega Swim for multiple sclerosis (MS) with the state’s highest individual fundraising total for the annual event. Organisers said Haydon raised $8,660 among 80 swimmers in Geelong who pooled a combined total so far of $26,000. Haydon accepted a sponsor’s challenge to swim 100 laps, or the equivalent of five kilometres, at a rate of $1 a lap. “My mother lives with multiple sclerosis, so I know first-hand the challenges of the disease,” he said. Cats star Shanon Byrnes, who also has a family member with MS, also participated in the swim. Proceeds go to MS Australia’s Go For Gold scholarships for sufferers of the disease to pursue goals in a range of fields including arts, business and sport.

in brief

Lost box of votes in count BY KIM WATERS AND ERIN PEARSON THE LIBERALS were clinging to hope of a surprise win in the electorate of Bellarine after discovering of an uncounted box of pre-poll votes on Wednesday, according to liberal candidate Kurt Reiter. Mr Reiter said the discovery had renewed his enthusiasm for a “game-changing result” in the Labor-held state seat. “We’re still behind, so let’s not get too excited,” he said. “This is indeed great news but anything can happen with the remaining uncounted prepoll and postal votes.” Labor incumbent Lisa Neville held a 720-vote lead on Mr Reiter with about 3000 votes left to count when the Independent went to press on Wednesday. A Victorian Electoral Commission spokesperson confirmed the discovery of the uncounted pre-poll votes. “Bellarine is still going through a re-check,” the spokesperson said. New member-elect for South

Barwon Andrew Katos said he was preparing to move into his new office in Belmont’s High Street after defeating Labor’s Michael Crutchfield. “This should happen in the next four weeks because I have to give Michael (Crutchfield) the opportunity to pack up,” he said. “I’ll be heading into meetings with Surf Coast Shire and others this week and getting on top of things straight away.” Mr Crutchfield lost his seat three days shy of qualifying for Victoria’s parliamentary pension, which would have paid him around $2000 a week taxfree. However, a Melbourne newspaper reported this week that he would qualify for an unspecified lump-sum payment for MPs who failed to reach the parliamentary pension minimum of eight years service. Mr Katos said he would step down from his role as a Geelong councillor this Friday. Former state and council election candidate Angelo Kakouros put his hand up for the Deakin ward by-election to replace Mr Katos.

Cats profit GEELONG Football Club has posted a $1.3 million operating profit after “another strong season on and off the field”, according to chief executive officer Brian Cook. He attributed the 11th consecutive profit in 2010 to record membership of 40,655, improved takings from games at the MCG and over-budget results in “nearly all” the Cats’ commercial operations.

Schoolie assault POLICE have urged schoolies on the Surf Coast to keep an eye on their friends after an alleged sex assault at Lorne. Police said an 18-year-old schoolie had reported she was assaulted at an “accommodation facility” in the town during the end-of-school celebrations last week.

Rocking on AN ATTENDANCE of around 400 despite unfavourable weather could lead to organisers running an activity day in Lara’s You Yangs again next year, according to a spokesperson for Parks Victoria. About 50 volunteers ran activities such as mountain biking, orienteering and rock climbing at last weekend’s Recreation Rocks, which also raised around $5000 for Geelong Hospital Appeal, the spokesperson said.

Bin patrol SURF Coast Shire officers are set to begin “patrols and door knocks” to ensure residents put out and bring in their bins within allocated times, according to a public notice. The shire’s notice said bins could go out no more than 24 hours before collection and must be retrieved within 48 hours after they were emptied, with the shire enforcing the rule due to “many community complaints”.

He said the league would take out a four-year $250,000 loan, with council to reconsider reimbursing the umpires as part of City Hall’s 2011/2012 budget so they could pay out the borrowings.

BY ANDREW MATHIESON ALUMINIUM has emerged as a potential killer of thousands of fish in Anglesea River, according to EPA Victoria. South west regional manager Gavan Mathieson said pathology tests on thousands of dead mullet, bream and eels found that damage to their gills and skin was consistent with exposure to acidic water. “The results have also shown high levels of aluminium may have been a contributing factor.” Mr Mathieson said aluminium was “common” in flows from acidic soils, which the EPA has previously linked to the fish kill. Flows from a Salt Creek sub-catchment of the river had concentrations of soil-derived aluminium many times national safety guidelines, he said. “Pollution has been ruled out as a cause, as have dissolved oxygen levels, disease, fishing bycatch, natural mass mortalities, temperature stress and toxic effects,” Mr Mathieson said. Geelong Environmental Council president Joan Lindros called the findings a “big whitewash”. She doubted the aluminium levels were natural.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR GMHBA MEMBERS

nib holdings limited abn 51 125 633 856

To the members of GMHBA, As a valued member, you might ask yourself why the Board of GMHBA hasn’t given you an opportunity to have your say on nib’s increased offer of $180 million for GMHBA. Despite nib significantly increasing the value of its offer and making a wide range of commitments to maintain and improve services, GMHBA’s Board has rejected the proposal without putting the offer to you, the owners, to have your say. At the end of the day, you might decide to reject our offer but we believe that you should at least have the right to have your say. In October this year, nib made a $140 million offer to the Board of Directors of GMHBA to merge. After GMHBA’s Board rejected that offer, nib re-examined its valuation and substantially increased the offer. nib also entered into discussions with GMHBA in an effort to come to some agreement because nib believes that the two organisations are a great fit. Recent history shows that health fund members overwhelmingly support mergers like that proposed by nib. nib believes they do so because they see the benefit in having a stronger health insurer and because they like the idea of crystallising the value of their ownership in the business. At $180 million and based upon other comparable sales, nib believes GMHBA members could get as much as $7,000 in cash, tax free. nib believes the average cash payment would likely be in excess of $2,000. The Board of GMHBA have claimed that our offer undervalues GMHBA. We call on them to share with their members their own valuation of GMHBA which we know they have obtained from an expert. nib believes it shouldn’t be a secret to GMHBA members. The Board of GMHBA also suggests selling the business to nib could lead to poorer customer service and a range of other problems. However, as a condition of our offer, we have made a wide range of commitments to maintain and improve service levels. nib is renowned for its customer service and in the quarter ended September this year, grew more than any other health insurer in Victoria, and Australia overall. People in Victoria and around the nation are choosing nib because of the same price competitiveness and service quality the Board of GMHBA appears to think may not be good enough. As in other parts of the financial services sector, the private health insurance industry is going through a period of consolidation. In the past three years there have been a number of mergers including GMHBA’s own acquisition of a small health fund, Druids Victoria, in 2009. GMHBA has an unprecedented opportunity to be part of this momentum, while at the same time realising the significant value embedded in the business for its members. We believe the Board of GMHBA should reconsider its opposition to our proposal in the interest of its members and the broader Geelong community. At the very least, we believe it should prove to its members that nib’s bid is insufficient (we believe it isn’t) by releasing the details of its own valuation of GMHBA and then let its members have the final say on the offer.

Homes aglow ‘despite costs’ BY ANDREWMATHIESON A SERIES of overcharged electricity bills has failed to stop one of Geelong’s iconic Christmas displays lighting up again. Jeannette Smith said her home in Norlane’s Eagle Parade would glow again this Christmas after attracting hundreds of onlookers nightly over the past 12 festive seasons. Other Christmas display enthusiasts told the Independent, which is running a Christmas lights competition with radio station BayFM, that they would also defy rising power costs to decorate their homes again.

“We’ve had trouble because the electricity man won’t come in to read our meter with the dog out the front, so they estimate it by the highest bill of the year. They’ve done that three times in a row, so we’ve been overcharged three times this year,” Mrs Smith said “But that still hasn’t stopped us.” Mrs Smith was investigating ways to save on power costs for this year’s display. “I’ll let you in on a little secret: I have a lot of battery lights this year.” Chris Foreman, of Corio’s Colorado Drive, had “shut down”

her windows since the end of September to work on a Santa’s workshop theme this year. Ms Foreman had spent recent years lighting up her front yard to raise money for Cancer Council Victoria after overcoming the disease in 2001. She was unconcerned about her display’s impact on her power bill this year. “It doesn’t worry me. Just to see the smile on a family’s face is enough,” Ms Foreman said. “We’ve had so many kids coming and watching us build it that they are so into the spirit of Christmas, so why would you not do it.”

BY ANDREW MATHIESON TOURISM experts struggling to identify Geelong’s true identity have turned to residents to sell their city. Residents will lead a new campaign also pushing Geelong as a “pretty affordable option” for visiting friends and relatives who account for up to half of the city’s visitors. Tourism Geelong president Nicholas Heath said a tourism seminar earlier this year heralded a change of direction for marketing the city. “There has been a growing realisation among tourism professionals that we aren’t addressing this market as well as we should,” Mr Heath said. Tourism Geelong launched, as part of the campaign, a mygeelong.org.au website last Friday, asking residents to send e-cards of favourite places and activities in the city and to share their stories. The campaign launch included a pull-out replica of an historic Geelong tourism marketing poster in last week’s Independent. Mr Heath, a marketing expert, said empowering Geelong residents to take control was the key to the campaign. “It’s all about giving them the information and the tools so they can pass them on,” he said. “And at the psychological level, giving them permission to say they are proud of their town.” Mr Heath said surveys had also indicated residents were often unaware of “all the really good

A walk through the art of our city GEELONG artists are joining forces to guide shoppers through the artistic side of the central city area this Friday and Saturday. A network of studios, art retailers and galleries are promoting their first Christmas Art Walk as the city battles perceptions of urban decline after a series of shopfront closures. An organiser said the walk would run from Geelong Gallery to various venues in the city centre, with a “handy map” available at participating venues. The venues would also collect entries for walk prizes including artworks and gift vouchers. The organiser said the artists had “good reasons” to stage the walk, such as highlighting the

Walk this way: Geelong artists promote the Christmas Art Walk through the central city area. thriving arts community in central Geelong. “The initiative helps educate the public but basically we want to highlight the positive events hap-

pening in the city centre right now.” The organiser said the art walk would be available from 10am to 6pm Friday and 10am to 4pm Saturday.

Wet month ends soggy spring MOST of the Geelong, Otways and Bellarine Peninsula region recorded a fourth consecutive month of well-above average rain in November. Urban Geelong had an average of nearly 100mm across the suburbs for the month compared to a 1992 to 2009 average of 49mm and on par with November 2007. Spring totals were also well-above the average 150mm at 266mm, with 2010 our sixth wettest spring since records began in 1876. Even in a La Nina year this result is by no means guaranteed for the region but the frequency of good rain-bearing systems has undoubtedly been the cause. On at least three occasions totals of over 20mm fell in a 24-hour period in Geelong during November. There were two thunder-lightning days but no severe storms, although some relatively minor flashflooding was reported in some suburbs. Although some of the Otways received belowaverage rain and runoff, the total capacity of Geelong’s water supplies is now over 73 per cent. This is an excellent position to be in before summer and most outlooks support a continued good rainfall period through to autumn. Geelong was spot-on the 1992-2009 average for November temperatures at the city’s weather station, owing largely to a run of warmer nights in the final week.

Under the weather LINDSAY SMAIL Maximums averaged 20.1C and minimums 10.1C compared to the long-term raw figures of 20.7C and 9.5C respectively. November’s mean temperature was therefore 15.1C, which was right on average. Two days were over 30C, with 31.9C on November 23 and 31C on November 12. Overnight temperatures were pushed up in the final week of the month, with eight consecutive minimums over 12C. The highest minimum was 17.3C on November 24 and the coldest night was on the first of the month when the temperature dipped to 4.5C. This spring was also Geelong’s coldest in seven years, with the lowest daily maximum average, 18C, since 2003. The overall spring mean temperature for Geelong was 13.05C, which was .2C below the 1992-2009 average at Geelong Airport.

Gathering ‘deadline’

Meets at the Geelong RSL 1st & 3rd Tuesdays of the month

“We need someone who is really dedicated, as past people have ended up burning out. “The positions need someone who is self-motivated and willing to contribute a bit of time to a not-for-profit organisation. “I am hopeful.” The June deadline follows a report in last week’s Independent on concerns about the event’s new site at Fyansford Common. Geelong’s council forced the gathering to relocate from its traditional Queens Park base to Fyansford after a clash with football and cricket seasons. Mr Fraser has labelled the Fyansford site as “uneven, unreliable and at risk of flooding”. He hoped organisers could work with council to find a better location for 2011. Mr Fraser said the gathering committee would run a public meeting to recruit new members at Geelong RSL next Thursday.

Disabled agency opens up BY ANDREW MATHIESON SMILING Sandra Dawson is no stranger to the limelight. The packaging worker recently glammed up to star in a government film to showcase the benefits of disability enterprises. Now she is out to promote Kommercial’s open day this Friday to coincide with International Day of People with Disability. “I’m just getting used to the camera in my face,” Sandra says as a flashbulb dazzles her eyes. Kommercial’s North Geelong site, one of several of the Geelong dis-

ability employment provider’s operations, packages goods for several companies including parcels from overseas that fail to meet Australian standards. So when Sandra spots one of her special Christmas packages on the shelves, she’s amazed shoppers are “actually buying our stuff”. Kommercial’s open day will showcase the work of employees with disabilities while providing an insight into the company’s operations. The open day will begin 11.30am at Kommercial’s centre in Baxter Street, North Geelong.

BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG Highland Gathering has until June to avoid folding, according to an organiser. John Fraser said the event committee could keep operating for the next six months but would then have to find several new permanent members. The committee had been running with places “tentatively filled” but needed a permanent secretary, a treasurer, a grounds marshal and two nonexecutive members, he said. The committee would have to disband if it failed to fill the places. “What is required by our constitution is a full and functional executive committee. Currently we don’t have that,” Mr Fraser said. “We have a president until June but we urgently need five members who are willing to operate on the committee.” Mr Fraser was “semi-confident” of filling the positions in time to continue the 153-year-old event.

Paul snags a taste of success WHEN loyal customers offer a word of advice, Drysdale butcher Peter Hommelhoff listens – especially to members of the blue-rinse set. The ladies who slowly shuffle into Hommy’s Quality Meats to order their favourite snags, the same cuts of meat every week and enough mince to make their pensions last came up with a new twist on an Australian favourite. “A lot of old ladies used to say that because we marinate our pork ribs with Chinese honey and barbecue flavour, they would put Vegemite on theirs at home,� Peter explains. Rather than turn up his nose, Peter spent the next eight months scratching his head perfecting Vegemite and cheese beef sausages. The idea of sausages combining Vegemite and cheese, more at home between slices of bread than mixed with ground meat, is not new. Peter admits that a company launched a similar recipe four years ago. Amateur foodies had also tried home-made versions. “People who made their own got jars of Vegemite, put them in hot water and melted them with cheese and flour but it was just too strong,� Peter says.

Local Legends ANDREW MATHIESON “I modified one recipe after about half a dozen good batches and a lot of trial and error using the mix and Vegemite powder. I blended it in with different sorts of tasty cheese until we got the right flavour.� A lot of butchers have failed to perfect the recipe, including one from Queensland who rang Peter saying he struggled to sell them after nearly five years of trying. “The secret is not to be too salty,� Peter reveals. He hints further that the cheese should give off some moisture to the beef. But the sausage secrets will stay with Peter, much like the secret spices did with Colonel Sanders. “I really can’t say too much,� he grins, “it’s just the right mixture of

cheese with the Vegemite. “You just don’t want one to take over the other – it will ruin it. “And you’ve got to have lean beef because if you use 75 to 80 per cent beef, it doesn’t work.� At first glance, people would squirm at the sound of his sausage concoction. But most nod with approval after taking a bite. “But if you don’t like Vegemite, there’s no point to it,� Peter warns His shop has already sold hundreds of kilos of Vegemite and cheese sausages since they went on the market last month. If anyone should have a bit of good sauce on sausages, it would be 57year-old Peter and his fourth-generation-butcher son Matthew. Growing up in his family’s Wycheproof butcher shop built 80 years ago, Peter would clean the machines out the back after school between finishing homework. It gave the laconic country kid a taste for the industry. “When I was about 10 I had to wash up the big, old silent cutter, which in those days was a sausage mixer,� he remembers.

“I used to clean it up when it still would have the sausage and I would lick and eat the sausage off – it was bloody beautiful.� Peter’s grandfather and father, both smallgoods manufacturers, kept German recipe books aside from 150 years ago to continue producing their favourite award-winning hams and Strassburgs. Starting an apprenticeship in 1969, Peter was taught how to “break� meat the old-fashioned way for legs of lamb, loin chops and forequarter roasts. “In my day you never hand a bandsaw, you hand-sawed a chop,� he says. “We worked 16 hours a day.� Now butchering takes less than half the time. In those early years un-refrigerated meat hung from rails, sawdust covered floors and wing-ribbed roast was as fancy as it got. “We would go out and kill after work in the abattoirs,� Peter recalls. “We killed our lambs or beef at night and would be up at five the next morning to drag them into the shop.�

buckets & bouquets BOUQUETS to the happy, satisfied and positive people who sent what looked like a record number of bouquets to the Independent recently. It is kind to extend so much praise to others. The biblical phrase ‘Love thy neighbour’ is still very much alive and appropriate. Keith, Corio BUCKETS to the commercial television stations for shunning the Victorian election on Saturday night. With only one television in the house and two children, I was forced to watch Fred Claus followed by You Don’t Mess With The Zohan. Events as important as elections should be mandatory viewing. Brain Ache, Highton BUCKETS to the low-life who broke into my husband’s work car and trailer and stole his tools. My husband works hard to provide for his family. I hope karma comes and bites you where it hurts because thieves eventually get caught. Not Happy, Torquay

BUCKETS to political party representatives for forcing people to take how-tovote cards, which were then thrown away as voters entered polling booths. Even the Greens would not let us walk by without their wad of dead trees. How hard would it be to tape each card in each booth? What A Waste, Drysdale

BOUQUETS to everyone who donated time, resources and talents to make a cooking demonstration as part of a Pro Heart fundraiser for Heart Foundation such a huge success. Your willingness to share your skills and knowledge certainly left its mark on an enthusiastic audience representing all age groups. D Ann Hodda, Geelong West

BOUQUETS to Geelong Hospital’s emergency department, which we unfortunately had to visit three times in the past six weeks for three family members. The staff was extremely professional and caring and gave us the best possible treatment. Special thanks to Dr Chris, nurse Sarah and the infectious diseases team. Bali Bound And Returned, Leopold

BUCKETS to a smirking woman in a vomit-coloured Holdren Berlina who barged through a give-way sign in Rock O’Cashel lane and cut me off. She obviously doesn’t care about road rules, her car or her passengers’ safety. Pity I wasn’t driving a truck. Saab Driver, Geelong

BOUQUETS to Tony and Nicole at Portarlington Country Butcher, Kim and Lily at Portarlington IGA Express and Mersina at Drysdale Fish and Chickens for their continued support of Portarlington Primary School’s barbecue at Portarlington Market. On Behalf Of The School, Portarlington

BUCKETS to Geelong’s council for clearing the iconic Geelong Highland Gathering off its natural home. We can fence off our streets to watch people ride bikes but the swirl of bagpipes will not be heard again in Queen’s Park. Is this 2010 or 1745? Moya Not A Scot, Wandana Heights

BUCKETS to a taxi driver from Corio Shopping Centre who not only wanted to barter about the fare but who kept my $17 jar of Moccona coffee as well. Kaye, Norlane BOUQUETS to RAPU, level four, Geelong Hospital, for the care given during my unexpected admissions, twice during one week. Thank you for your care and understanding. Recovering Now, Highton BUCKETS to the thief who stole a charity fundraising tin from a sweets and chips display in a Geelong office building. Obviously you are the kind of person who will eventually need charity yourself. Hopefully you don’t recieve it. Disgusted, Geelong

J ESTERHAZY (Letters, November 19) should rest assured that he or she is not alone in our former Minister for the Aged failing to follow up interviews at her Newcomb office. I accept that all members of parliament have heavy workloads and fairly tight schedules but when our representatives, no matter which political party, make themselves available for interviews with their constituents then I would expect to take place, especially if an office secretary takes one’s phone number and details. The knowledge and advice I required regards pressing issues related to my high-level-care aged parent was never followed up through Lisa Neville’s Newcomb office. So neither J Esterhazy nor I have had the opportunity to speak to Ms Neville in person but aren’t we privileged to see her many photos in our local press? Yes, she is a very busy person!

TWO bravos. One for the wonderful staff of the Independent who, unlike another publication, consistently printed our letters. One for the eminently sensible voters of South Barwon for dismissing an MP who refused to listen and a State Government whose jack-boot treatment of ordinary people was breathtakingly arrogant. Are you paying attention, Ted? Lee Gladwell Grovedale

Too busy to care

Pooling resources I CALL on all people with a conscience to use their voice and political powers to retain Portarlington’s pool for community use. The long-established pool is well-used, with many driving from Drysdale and Clifton Springs to attend classes. I attend aqua-aerobics classes twice a week with many other senior-aged people, which helps us stay mobile and out of hospital beds. While I do my exercise many others do theirs and when we leave in swarm school children. Adjacent to the pool is a recreation room housing a seniors’ mobilty and resistance gym program, with a waiting list for classes five days a week. Closure of the pool would probably mean the end of that facility, too. I can see the pool needs maintenance and that the

complex of the pool, recreation hall and holiday units is on valuable land. Blind Freddie would realise the first thing that would happen after the closure of the pool would be a planning application to subdivide this land. A Melbourne owner who paid a fig many years ago for this facility may not care about the health of locals but our voted representatives must care. City of Greater Geelong and State Government must act quickly and buy the tract of land with pool and recreation room so the good work of keeping the community healthy can continue. Surely Portarlington residents don’t have to drive 20 minutes to Ocean Grove to get what we already have here on our doorstep. Yvonne Parker Portarlington

Good oil on writer BOB FOSTER, the Maunder Minimum man (Letters, November 12), would have us believe we are a decade or two away from a Little Ice Age. Bob is a retired executive of BHP. He is also a board member of Australia’s foremost climate change denialist organisation, the Lavoisier Group. Any ideas on who would fund this powerful lobby group? Mr Foster would have us believe there is a worldwide conspiracy of thousands of scientists across a multitude of disciplines doctoring their research and fudging figures. Why? Obviously to ride a government gravy train of grants and subsidies with an ill-conceived plan to wreck the world’s economy. I’ve always thought that if I was of an unethical scientific bent I’d clamber aboard the far-richer slush fund of the major oil and fossil-fuel corporations to muddy the waters in these troubling times. Remember how for decades the tobacco industry used scientific guns for hire to stall and stymie the link between smoking and lung cancer? Remember how world governments were slow to react to the devastating effects of acid rain on northern hemisphere forests? The same rogue scientists were busy sowing the seeds of doubt and creating confusion for their neocon free-marketeer bosses. Now it’s happening again on climate change. Scientists have been warning us of anthropogenic climate change for 30 years. It’s not new. The evidence has become so overwhelming and compelling that even huge corporations are leading the way forward while governments move like glaciers, fearful of electoral backlash.

FAILING to formally host schoolies represents a lost opportunity for Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads. The assets of proximity to ferry services, the best beach, innumerable unoccupied accommodation options to suit all budgets and plenty of less-than-fully-patronised food and hospitality venues beg the question why trader groups and City of Greater Geelong arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t prepared to seize an opportunity that the gritted teeth and unwelcoming vibe at Torquay through to Lorne arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t capable of coping with, let alone formally developing. Not all year 12 students, who are entitled to a fair go, have the means to travel further afield nor should they be met with an overthe-top police presence combined with outof-touch municipal and judgemental commercial interests. Are we that insecure and lacking in enterprise? The Gold Coast, Byron Bay and Bali seem to have had little difficulty in putting over time a successful schoolies business plan in place while off-peak Great Ocean Road tourist numbers continue to tumble. Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads, supported by City of Greater Geelong, have a terrific opportunity to develop over time a cost-effective, local alternative for year 12exit students. Provide an up-front package and care for the clientele and who knows from how far afield and in what numbers family members might put their hand in their hip-pocket to give their kids a well-earned and safe break.

Park rides on MOTORCYCLING Australia would like to extend its sincerest thanks to former Member for South Barwon Michael Crutchfield for his support and assistance in securing the future of the much-valued McAdam Park. In addition, we would like to thank Surf Coast Shire and City of Greater Geelong for their professionalism and desire to ensure the motorcycle sport fraternity of Geelong and Surf Coast region continues to have access to a world-class facility. The efforts of these bodies ensures the

â&#x20AC;Ą

region has a venue to continue to educate and develop the young riders of the region in a safe and educational environment. McAdam Park holds major significance to Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proud motorcycle sport history, with the circuit hosting many international events through the years as well as being the only off-road riding facility in the region. The continuing use of McAdam Park allows Motorcycling Australia, through its many affiliated clubs, to provide training and recreational riding facilities, helping to reduce illegal riding in national and local parks. For more than 50 years McAdam Park has been the home to thousands of offroad riders and we are committed to continuing that for many years to come. David White Motorcycling Australia chief executive officer

Waiting in pain I WRITE regarding the poor efforts of Geelong Hospital and ambulance services. My 78-year-old mother was scheduled to have hip surgery in late September but it has now jumped to an 18-month wait. Two weeks ago her hip locked up and she could not move out of her chair. My father called the ambulance as he cannot drive and they could not go by taxi because of her hip. The ambulance took five hours to arrive. The paramedics helped unlock her hip but told her it was all they could do for her, which was completely unacceptable. The paramedics said her only other option was to be taken to the hospital, sit in an emergency room for four hours and then be sent home. This incident would not have occurred if my motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surgery had taken place when it was supposed to, in September. I know that a lot of people need surgery but as each day passes my mother weakens more and is losing weight rapidly. I speak to my father every night and can hear the pain and worry in his voice. I am extremely concerned and disappointed at the lack of care and consideration for my parents, especially my mother. I am 50 and just starting to suffer arthritis. The pain is excruciating, so I can imagine the pain of other sufferers.

Each night I pray that my plea is heard and my mother receives her surgery soon. Julie Mauldon Belmont

RE-think classes I AM A mother of three children, two of whom are in public school and have opted out of religious education (RE). My oldest son is now in high school where they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have RE but my daughter in still in primary and her school has RE. While her class is doing RE she is taken to another classroom. She is not allowed to participate in that classâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activities and is only allowed to read books or draw pictures. Out of 22 pupils in her class, six opt out of RE, so just over a quarter of her class sits there doing basically nothing. My daughter has become upset when her other children question her beliefs after the RE lesson and tell her she is wrong. This can cause a lot of heartache for a sevenyear-old when on those particular days she is excluded at playtimes. I send my children to secular schools because we are not a Christian household. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it is fair that my daughter misses out on at least half an hour of learning because of so-called non-compulsory RE in a state-run school. I would like to see RE taken out of the public school system altogether but if that is not going to be the case then it should be an optional class or have a non-Christian counterpart. Religion and state have to kept separate. Tory Sorensen Grovedale

Geelong Swimming Club is well and truly equipped after being awarded over $3,000 in grants as part of the Telstra Assistance Fund. The Swimming Club received a shade marquee and swim results board that will be used at training sessions and event meets throughout the upcoming season. Club Vice President, Lisa Rush said she was delighted to receive the equipment grant, which will benefit the whole club. “It’s fantastic to have the support of Telstra and see them making such a positive difference in our community,” Lisa said. “The equipment will come in very handy over the summer months. Our swimmers will be able to see how they’ve performed in each race and their parents, friends and supporters will be able to keep cool in the shade under our new marquee over the hot summer months,” she added. Clubs such as the Geelong Swimming Club lie at the heart of our community and the Telstra Assistance Fund enables us to make a genuine difference. By providing them with much

Church’s tightrope to GPAC BY ERIN PEARSON PRODUCING successful music is like walking a tightrope, according to Marty Willson-Piper. The guitarist and lead singer of seminal Australian band The Church said the trick was finding the balance between doing what the group liked and what fans would “continue to love”. Willson-Piper spoke the Independent as The Church struck out on tour to celebrate its 30th anniversary. He conceded the band was ageing but believed its members had also grown smarter. “Like anything, all the vitality of youth you once had gets replaced with experience and a plethora of achievements. “The Church has never been a band that’s catered for demand because we want people to come and see us, not a top-10 hit. “If you like us, great. If you don’t, well that’s your own poison.” Willson-Piper, Steve Kilbey and Peter Koppes founded The Church in Sydney in 1980. After finding fame with hits Under the Milky Way and Donnie Darko, The Church is touring its back catalogue around the country. “I think The Church realised there was a chemistry right from the beginning, although it was never an easy ride,” Willson-Piper said. “After 24 years we began to get to know each other. We all have things in common but we’ve always lived our own loves. “Great groups are made up of individuals who don’t agree with everything

ustralian comedy legend Rodney Rude will perform his third and final show on his Wrong Hole tour at Corio’s Gateway Hotel on December 16. Comedy enthusiasts who have yet to see Rodney should not miss out on this chance to see his original style of humour. The last two shows were sell-outs, with the hotel expecting the same response for the next show. Anyone planning to attend should get in early for tickets. The Gateway Hotel will also bring country music legend Adam Brand to Geelong on January 28. With his own style of country music, Brand’s last performance at the Corio hotel was a big hit. Fans should get in quick because tickets are selling fast. For children, the Gateway will host morning shows of Kisstroyer and Babba with kids-only concerts during school holidays. More details will appear in the Independent soon. The Gateway invites patrons to visit for meals. The hotel’s all-you-can-eat buffet is still going strong, with lunch and dinner seven days a week and a face painter available for children on Wednesday nights. The Gateway Hotel is Corio’s home of entertainment.

Year of ‘surprise’ ahead for GPAC BY ERIN PEARSON A “FEW surprises” will feature in Geelong Performing Arts Centre’s 2011 theatre season, according to general manager Jill Smith. She said the season would have a strong emphasis on “great writing and intriguing real-life stories” with some of Australia’s “best-known and most-loved performers”. Ms Smith believed the 2011 program would back-up a “benchmark” 2010 at GPAC. “The program looks sensational,” she said. Australian star of stage and television Eddie Perfect graced the arts centre’s foyer to help launch the 2011 season. Best-known for his lead roll in the Channel 10 drama Offspring and Shane Warne the Musical, Perfect’s credits also include Kath and Kim, Blue Heelers, Spicks and Specks and Babes in the Woods. Perfect and Smith revealed that 2011 at GPAC would feature a line-up of Australian and international productions. The season would include award-winning performances from Ian Stenlake and Racheal Beck in Love Letters, uplifting musical Breast Wishes, A Commercial Farce by Peter Houghton and Joanna Murray Smith’s The Gift. Drama would include productions such as Krakouer, the story of brothers Jim and Phil Krakouer who took the Australian football world by storm in the early 1980s. The show explores the challenges faced by indigenous footballers in their rise to the top of the game.

Old beetle is new again



7KH'HDOHU$OWHUQDWLYH  

+DQGERRN6HUYLFLQJ %UDNHV6XVSHQVLRQ 0RUH 

BY ERIC BLAIR olkswagenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s New Beetle just keeps on keeping on. The car that was launched as a youthful, way-out fashion statement almost 10 years ago has now become middle-aged in automotive terms. Yet various facelifts and new suits of clothes have let it retain its presence on the road, as well as outside cafes. Why is this so? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chiefly about style, though nostalgia certainly plays its part as well. Nostalgia created by the fact that during the 1960s and into the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;70s the old VW Beetle was a major player in the Australian market. It was built here for most of that time and was generally in the top five, sometimes the top three in the sales race; being beaten only by Holden and Falcon. Past VW owners looked at the New Beetle with loving eyes. Quite a few of these cars are now on the used-car market. Many will have done little work and have been properly maintained by the book. But always check the service book personally, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still wise to have a final inspection by a professional. Though the New Beetle looks like a sedan it is actually a three-door hatchback. But really only has a coupe like interior because the back seat isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all that large. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a cabriolet version, launched in 2003. The driving position isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all that good, believe it or not all but the shortest of drivers will find themselves closer to the back windscreen than the front. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge dash panel that seemingly stretches forever in front of you and the windscreen pillars can confuse the view out. Though the New Beetle has only sold in comparatively small numbers, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s backed by one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest car makers and, as mentioned, many of its parts are borrowed directly from the Golf. This means spare parts and servicing are available in

Engines should start quickly (even the turbodiesel, as it has fast-acting glow plugs). Listen for untoward engine noises, especially when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cold and the oil hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t built to full pressure. Make sure a manual gearbox doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t baulk or crunch on fast downchanges. The clutch pedal should be reasonably light, even during these quick downchanges. Check that automatic transmissions are positive in their shifts and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take too long to go into Drive or Reverse from Park or Neutral.

8 RWC CARS

As part of your road test make sure that the brakes pull the Beetle up evenly. You should feel the ABS working during hard stops, creating a pulsing through the pedal while doing so. Interiors of Volkswagens generally stand up well, but some older cars that have been kept in the open continuously may suffer from drying out of dashboard tops. Cracks are a real no-no as repairs can be pretty expensive.

raeme and Richard Bye, of Fluidrive Automatic Transmissions in North Geelong, have serviced the motorists of Geelong since 1976 and pride themselves on providing customers with the best job, using quality parts, at a competitive price. Graeme recommends car transmissions be serviced at least every 12 months or 20,000 kilometres, especially as the vehicle gets older. He says a regular service is even more critical if the vehicle is driven in a lot of stop/start traffic, does a lot of short trips or is used for towing. “The majority of cars sold in Australia since the early 1990’s have been fitted with automatic transmissions with three forward speeds plus reverse. “Today five and six speed automatics are common and with increasingly sophisticated technology, it’s even more important for drivers to take their cars to transmission specialists for advice, service and repairs.” Graeme says to do the job correctly a modern workshop must invest in training and equipment and keep abreast of technical information on all transmissions. Fluidrive Automatic Transmissions in North Geelong are also the technical centre for the entire Fluidrive group of 14 service centres as well as being the Transmission Rebuild Centre for the group. Fluidrive Automatic Transmissions is at 384A Thompson Rd, North Geelong, phone 5278 2681.

panel to be announced within the next four weeks. “What we need to do now is confirm in-principle agreements with personnel, organise the roster and talk with coaching staff,” Hoey said. “We’ve already had had discussions with a number of last year’s (Big V) state championship team and have an in-principle agreement with those interested. “We have a strong 70-per-centlocal content philosophy here at the Supercats, so we must now ratify these agreements.” Hoey said the Supercats would select 12 players for the team. League general manager Mark Chivers said the women’s team represented years of planning and dedication on the Supercats

board. “Geelong has proven what it is capable of achieving in its men’s program for several years,” he said. “Their game presentation is first-class and their administration is well-organised. “Given that kind of track record, the decision by the members to allow a Supercats team to enter the women’s competition was entirely unanimous. “Geelong’s results at Big V level demonstrates they are ready to compete at our level and that they are suitably organised both on and off the court to come in and immediately be competitive.” The women’s side will be a joint partnership between the Supercats and Basketball Geelong.

BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG Supercats will field its first women’s side next season after winning league approval. South East Australian Basketball League officials accepted the application at their annual meeting on the weekend to add a women’s team to the existing Supercats men’s line-up. Supercats general manager David Hoey said he was “thrilled” with the decision. “We were named SEABL club of the year this week over 14 other clubs and now to hear this announcement as well is fantastic,” he said. “We’re certainly doing something right down here.” Hoey said fans could expect the new women’s team and coaching

sport Cats keen to cement four place AFTER yet another rained out draw, Geelong Cricket Club approaches this weekend’s Saturday/Sunday two-day match eager to claim a positive result to retain its place in the top four. The Cats host Richmond at Kardinia Park, with the ground in magnificent condition after a mixture of warm, humid days and plenty of rain in between. With all the focus on the weather lately, the Cats’ other grades have been going about their business quietly but it’s worth mentioning that Travis Agg has the second XI sitting atop the ladder. The third XI is sitting in third position, while the fourth XI is in eight spot, although it only trails seventh courtesy of percentage. All grades have winnable games this weekend, so if the club can take out four from four the hierarchy will be well-pleased heading toward the Christmas break. Geelong Cricket Association has also suffered greatly from the weather so far this season but all clubs will just have to put it behind them in the mad scramble for some crucial points from the two games left before Christmas. An hour of bad play by any team could cost them their season. In division one, it’s barely worth looking at the ladder because just one game separates the entire field. One anomaly, however, is East Belmont’s percentage of 4.33. While the Lions form has been solid, it’s fair to say they haven’t been four times better than their opposition. One would expect that number to drop, though, once some figures get added to the wickets lost and runs against columns. Bell Post Hill will be looking to do just when it travels to Winter Reserve tomorrow only one week after contesting a twenty20 fixture on the same ground. The Panthers will be looking to Alex Cairns, Brad Stacey and Travis

Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE Faulkhead to provide them with their first victory of the season. In division two, the ladder is at least taking some shape, with five teams managing to claim a minimum of one victory so far. Still, one win won’t mean squat if those teams lose this week. They need to consolidate their positions, none more so than Waurn Ponds which has struggled to replicate its premiership form of three seasons back after suffering a horrible two seasons since. Waurn Ponds this round hosts Murgheboluc which will be just as desperate to claim victory, sitting at the foot of the ladder in what has been a bleak campaign thus far. Experienced players such as Damian Port and Ben Nicholls will hold the key for their respective sides in what should be a hard-fought match. Division three has a ladder anomaly of its own. Teesdale, sitting in sixth position, does not have a percentage at all after failing to take a wicket as we head into December. Teesdale takes on Modewarre tomorrow in a rematch of last year’s grand final and if it fails to take a wicket this time around it will be in some serious trouble. Modewarre hasn’t exactly replicated its premiership form, though, and also finds itself outside the top six, making this game probably the most important for the season for both teams. For the loser, the season could be slipping away.

Weather or not: Weekly Shimano prize winner Dr Tran with his Queenscliff flathead, left, and Brendan Sheedy with a 40cm bream from the Barwon River estauary, right.

Anglers get fresh as weather gets rough JUST when all our angling opportunities were starting to fire, a week of heavy rains and sometimes strong wind bought most destinations undone in the past week. However, freshwater angling was still worthwhile for the hardy few, with Peter Farnsworth having plenty of fun at Lake Bullen Merri. Small rainbows dominated Peter’s captures but two browns that took his orange Powerbait saved the day, one weighing 2.1kg and the other a beauty of 2.8kg. Fishing only fifty metres away, Paul Jefferies found the small rainbow trout troublesome but also managed a pair of better-than-average browns over 2kg each. Darren McLean casting Atomic Shads from the shore at Lake Purrumbete where he was rewarded with an awesome brown trout of 3.1kg. The fish nailed the lure right at his feed, a situation he encountered on two other occasions during the day although neither fish stayed attached. Joel Rogers looked for some protection from the elements at West Barwon Reservoir where he cast small Tassie Devils for five mostly small trout. Bream anglers also did well in most of our estuaries but fishing will be tough over the comping week with plenty of fresh, dirty water flowing into the systems. Queenscliff’s cut produced fair numbers of silver trevally on soft plastics, especially curl-tail grubs in the Motor Oil Gold colour. Many fish caught taken after dark on the high tide, while some respectable flathead were also taken from the same location. Squid dominated at Swan Bay’s entrance, with anglers finding small,

On the bite BRIAN LONG dark-coloured jigs best. Fair numbers of whiting to 36cms were also available. Terry Stirling fished the Swan Bay Jetty for two gummy sharks, the best weighing 4kg cleaned and both taken on trevally fillet. After recently revealing how many anglers are experimenting with trolling for snapper, the best captures I head of in the past week were by this method. Fish were been landed using downriggers in up to 22m of water, while anglers without downriggers were confined to depths under 13m. Deep-diving lures have been working a treat, with the best fish landed close to 7kg. Tail Dancers and Koolie Minnows are the lures providing the best results, with this method even producing some quality flathead. Over coming months I believe there will be a strong trend to chasing snapper on trolled lures. Stingaree Bay yielded some nice pinkies during the week, with Xavier and Harry Morrison finding a nice patch on the sounder. Casting soft plastics in the area resulted in around 20 fish to 45cm but the boys also lost a larger snapper when it snagged on the bottom. The grammar school lagoon has been

holding numbers of salmon. Most have been around 800g but a couple of beauties have nudged 1.5kg, with the fish taken on both bait and soft plastics. Brendan Sheedy has been chasing the bream in the past few weeks, landing some ripper fish from most destinations. Both the Barwon River estuary and in Corio Bay have returned results, with Brendan’s best fish a respectable 40cm. Soft plastics have been good but hardbodied lures such as SX 40s and Atomic Shads have been better. Last week I saw some nice captures from the surf near Lorne, with snapper, whiting and trevally taken on the two hours leading up to dark. Generally, the rock platforms right around our coastline will fish well over the coming months. Over the next week snapper should become a focal point. Generally, when conditions are rough and unpleasant the fish really come on the bite. Best captures are still coming from Wilson Spit and out into the deeper water off St Leonards but we should see fish starting to show in numbers from the shallower water off the quarries, Bird Rock, Hermsley and inside Corio Bay. Dr Chan won this week’s Shimano $350 soft plastics outfit prize with his picture of a nice flathead he caught at Queenscliff’s cut. Clearly the weather affected the amount of anglers on the water in the past week, with few entries lodged, so keep those pictures coming in for the weekly prize and to go into the draw for the Christmas prize of a Shimano fishing packaged valued at $2000.
