Port servo push ‘needs $500,000’ BY KIM WATERS RESIDENTS would have to invest “about $500,000” to return petrol pumps to Portarlington with a cooperative fuel outlet, according to a project spokesperson. Bob Hynes said a “successful” interest group meeting this week had encouraged the push to develop an unmanned, selfserve petrol facility. A second meeting next week would elect a chairperson for the project and “get started” on a feasibility study, Mr Hynes said. “There’s a lot of community interest. “The community-run model is the cheapest and most serviceable, so first we’ll seek any expressions of interest from residents for financial backing and then incorporate that into a feasibility study.” The Independent reported early last year that the proposed cooperative would operate similar to a community bank, with competitive petrol prices. The station would replace the fuel pumps of the former Edens Garage, which closed to make way for a supermarket. Mr Hynes said Portarlington residents would have to continue filling up their vehicles at Drysdale, 15-kilometres away, for “a while yet”. He was unable to put any time frame on the development of the proposed cooperative outlet. “It will take time unfortunately,” he said. “The cost and time will vary depending on where we can find land.” Mr Hynes said eight sites could potentially host the cooperative pumps. “There are people interested

after it’s started with cheaper rent then we could move.” Mr Hynes said the station would include a 12-metre fuel container, diesel and unleaded bowsers and a self-administered pay station.

BY ERIN PEARSON AN OUTBREAK of flashers on the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula has alarmed police. Officers from Torquay and Ocean Grove reported multiple incidents of men flashing beachgoers since midDecember. Torquay Police Acting Senior Sergeant Adrian Bickley said officers were particularly concerned about a man who masturbated in front of women at the town’s Whites Beach last Friday. Police feared the man could become violent, Acting Snr Sgt Bickley said. “At this stage we haven’t made any arrests but it’s a high priority and we want to catch this person. We don’t want this person’s behaviour to escalate so we want to nab them ASAP.” Acting Snr Sgt Bickley said the Torquay station had assembled a special taskforce of plain-clothes officers to hunt the man and other alleged flashers. “If somebody does see or hear something that’s strange please phone 000 immediately so we can get our members down there ASAP.” Geelong Sexual Offences Unit’s Dale Menzies said beachgoers had reported nine incidents of obscene exposure at Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads beaches since December 23. “These nine cases haven’t presented any threats of physical violence but we’re still very concerned by the behaviour,” Detective Senior Constable Menzies said. “Out of the nine incidents six have been down at the western end of 13th Beach and we believe the same male is responsible. The other three were closer to Raffs Beach in Ocean Grove and The Bluff at Barwon Heads and we believe they’re different males.” Police described the man involved in the six 13th Beach incidents as in his mid-20s, tanned and with a solid build and short, dark hair. The offender approached his victims on foot, exposed himself and ran off toward Black Rock. Det Snr Const Menzies urged anyone with information to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Residents demand say during 4C link review BY KIM WATERS GROVEDALE residents are demanding to have their say in a review of Geelong’s bypass link to Surf Coast Highway after “missing out” the first time around. South Grovedale Community Action Group’s Margarita Kumnik said residents gave new MP Andrew Katos a “list of issues” for State Government to consider when drafting terms of reference for the review of the 4C link route. “We asked that people on the advisory committee not be the same ones who were on the independent planning panel last year,” Ms Kumnik said. “We’ve also requested that the committee hearings are open to the public and held in Geelong with submissions available to see on-line.” Ms Kumnick said residents also wanted the committee to know that reports recommending the alignment

to the previous Brumby Government were biased. New Planning Minister Matthew Guy had promised to organise an independent advisory panel to review the road’s route south of Grovedale. Residents living near the proposed 4C route at Grovedale and Waurn Ponds have opposed the link on noise and traffic grounds. They prefer a route on Boundary Road, further away from their homes. The residents labelled the previous consultation process as a “sham” designed to benefit Armstrong Creek developers at the expense of their property values. Mr Katos said he hoped for the review to begin “relatively quickly” after Mr Guy had completed the terms of reference and appointed the panel. “I will see the Planning Minister again this week and will check on the progress then,” Mr Katos said.

Power shock as bills jump $200 since July BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG household power bills have jumped around $200 in six months with another hike on the way, a national charity has warned. St Vincent de Paul’s Gavin Dufty urged families in the region to “prepare themselves” for even bigger bills in February and March after a tariff increase in January. Mr Dufty said a St Vincent de Paul investigation had found that bills for all-electric Geelong homes had risen $205, or 18 per cent, since July based on average consumption of 7000kWh. “It’s a huge increase,” he said. “Six months ago energy bills were

Second biggest rise in state $200 cheaper. Now people have to find extra cash.” Mr Dufty said bills for dual-energy homes running on gas and electricity in Geelong, the Bellarine Peninsula and Werribee had risen $170. The price hike in Powercor’s distribution zone was the second worst in the state behind Jemena’s area northwest of Melbourne where bills rose $215. Households in CitiPower’s metropolitan Melbourne distribution zone had the smallest hike of around $35. Mr Dufty warned Geelong house-

holds to steer clear of “strings and traps” luring consumers into paying more on their electricity contracts. “This is about kilowatts and megajoules, not freebies like free magazine prescriptions,” he said. “If you can’t afford the lighting you can’t read the magazine.” Diversitat financial counsellor Jocelyn McMillan was “quite concerned” about the energy price hikes. “We’ve seen an increase in people seeking help over the past six months,” she said. “We find that the first things to go

out of household budgets are insurances such as car insurance and health insurance.” The Independent sought an explanation for the electricity price hike from Powercor, which responded with a written statement that electricity bills comprised “several different components”. “From January 2011 Powercor’s distribution prices will increase in real terms by .1 per cent while metering charges will drop by 4.6 per cent in real terms,” the statement said. “Any other changes to customer rates would be as a result of retailer’s charges.”

Island hopping FEDERAL Member for Corio Richard Marles has continued travelling through the South Pacific as part of a new role under the Gillard Government. Mr Marles said his third “regional visit” as Parliamentary Secretary for Pacific Island Affairs had taken in Hawaii, Guam, Palau, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and Federated States of the Marshall Islands.

Flood cash GEELONG ratepayers will contribute $40,000 to flood relief in Queensland and Victoria after a council vote last week. Councillors supported Mayor John Mitchell’s motion to donate the cash while continuing to liaise with Municipal Association of Victoria about “specific requests” for further flood support.

Poet evening AUSTRALIA’S “leading poet” will read from his collection of works in a free “major literary event” at Geelong Gallery on Wednesday, according to councillor Rod Macdonald.

‘Independents’ in process with kids in custody BY ANDREW MATHIESON VOLUNTEERS will sit with “vulnerable” children to help them through police interviews in Geelong under a new program. Youth Referral and Independent Person Program coordinator Vivianne Dias said police had instigated the initiative under new laws to help children as young as 12 deal with arrests and going into custody. Ms Dias said the volunteers would attend police interviews with children aged under 18 in the absence of parents or guardians to link them with welfare and support services. The volunteers would attend stations to check on children’s welfare and provide advice on their legal rights, she said, because lawyers were rarely involved in the interview process. Ms Dias said the initiative had already been “positive” for several children who did not trust police. Few children who ended up in custody had parents “in their life”, she said. “The program was set up because young people are vulnerable and there is certainly the potential for the power imbalance between a police officer and a young person.” She said most children in custody faced charges of shoplifting, property damage or assault. “Occasionally we’re called in for more serious offences but they’re quite rare.” Ms Dias said the aim of the program was to reduce the likelihood of reoffending. The program also provided police with “further support” when dealing with young offenders. Ms Dias said police found the volunteers “incredibly helpful” when dealing with youths in custody. Police had previously contacted “known volunteers” under a previous “ad-hoc” system. Geelong and Corio police stations were recruiting volunteers for the program.

BY KIM WATERS PORTARLINGTON will host some of the world’s greatest athletes for Victoria’s “favourite and longest-running” triathlon event this weekend, according to organisers. Event spokesperson Adele Ormando said thousands of competitors and spectators had “booked out” Bellarine Peninsula accommodation for the triathlon’s 25th anniversary event on Sunday. “I think that because Portarlington is away from big cities but within driving distance of Melbourne it really attracts both spectators and the competitors,” Ms Ormando said. “It gives athletes the chance to venture away from the big cities where these events are usually held and experience a triathlon amid the beautiful scenery here.” Ms Ormando said the event attracted “some of the biggest names” in triathlon competition. “There will be Adam Beckworth, who is a Geelong-based athlete, as well as Brent Shuster, who won the 2008 and 2009 events, she said. “Sunday’s race will also see the 2010 Portarlington female winner, Madeleine Oldfield, set to make it a clean sweep of the Gatorade Triathlon Series, having held on to victory at the past three races.” Ms Ormando said the event had a “long history” of attracting world champions. Past winners included Stephen Foster, Chris Legh, Emma Carney, Craig McKenzie and Tim Bentley. “These races are not Olympic distances and not quite a sprint, so it’s really in between and people like that challenge,” she said. “It offers different conditions than most of the other courses in Australia and the swim section in particular was one of the highlights with its flat, pristine water. “To say they’ve won Victoria’s longest running triathlon is quite a big achievement and attracts a lot of competitors to the race.” Ms Ormando said 1000 athletes would tackle the event’s 800-metre swim, 26-kilometre bike ride and eight-kilometre run. “A lot of the community will be down there to cheer on the local competitors and most of the shops will be open with extra staff. “It’s always a very popular event and it’s a great way to support the local community and economy.”

BY KIM WATERS FALLING trees injured a camper and damaged 16 caravans and annexes when “freak winds” battered Portarlington Caravan Park this week, according to management. Bellarine Bayside chief Tim PageWalker said 62 campers evacuated the park after 95km/h wind blew down the 15-metre Cyprus pines on Tuesday afternoon. Police patrolled the barricaded park on Wednesday to prevent looting while campers stayed in temporary accommodation such as motels, hotels and residential homes. Mr Page-Walker said the wind damaged 30 other trees at the park. Workers cut down two and arborists identified 14 others as “dangerous”. Mr Page-Walker expected the park to reopen in a few days after workers finished cleaning up the site. “We aren’t allowing any of the public to enter the site at the moment because it’s still not safe and we don’t know if more trees will fall.” He said the caravan park had a “full arborist plan” for tree maintenance. “They were only checked six months ago. It’s not a failure of us maintaining the tree assets that we’ve got.” Mr Page-Walker was unable to rule out similar incidents in the future. “It was a freak storm that’s caused

Call for cash to fix ‘neglect of cycling’ THE region’s “sadly neglected” cycling infrastructure desperately needs state and federal government funding, according to bicycle safety body. Bike Safe Geelong president Barton Van Laar said “insufficient” funding had led to neglect of existing lanes and paths for cyclists as well as inadequate investment in new infrastructure for the growing population. Mr Van Laar issued his funding call after a series of cyclist deaths in collisions with vehicles on the region’s roads during the past few years. The tragedies continued last It’s time: Andy Richards month with the death of a cyclist on the Bellarine Peninsula’s roads and trails but an urgent funding injection was essential. Murradoc Road. “That includes existing infraMr Van Laar said Bike Safe Geelong was “working with structure that doesn’t currently authorities” to improve safety on meet Victorian standards with

regards to width, signage and treatments of roads. “We’ve also identified a number, around 10 or 11, hazardous roads in the region with no bike paths at all.” Mr Van Laar said Bike Safe Geelong had urged State Government to provide funding for “priority hazard roads” including Horseshoe Bend, 13th Beach and Murradoc roads. New cycling infrastructure was also essential in growth areas such as Drysdale, Armstrong Creek, Ocean Grove, Torquay, Bannockburn and Apollo Bay, he said. “But our current roads need to be brought up to scratch before governments even consider investment to cope with the predicted population growth.” Geelong councillor Andy Richards this week said it was

time City Hall worked with higher levels of government on improving road safety for cyclists. “This includes an on-road cycle route from the Surf Coast through my council ward (from Barwon Heads to Grovedale and Waurn Ponds) and over the bridge into Ocean Grove and from there all the way around the Bellarine Peninsula,” he said. “Council should prepare a document that clearly sets out an onroad safe-cycling route. “There is also another side to this which is about planning for families and children who want to cycle. They may not want to go on road and that’s fair enough, so council should be seeking funding from the State Government to ensure mums and dads can get out and have a ride with their children.”

Medal bid could ‘bring governments together’ BY KIM WATERS GEELONG’S bid for a medal honouring long-serving councillors could “strengthen the relationships” between all levels of Australian government, according to Victoria’s peak municipal body. Municipal Association of Victoria’s management committee has resolved to deter-

mine a “common understanding and position” on the proposed medal with state and national local government associations. The committee’s resolution said MAV would then write to Federal Government to “promulgate” the long-service award. “This could potentially strengthen the relationships between local, state and commonwealth governments as all tiers of government

will be recognising the important contribution made by long serving councillors to their communities,” the resolution said. The Independent revealed in September that Geelong’s council had contacted the MAV suggesting the medal for councillors. The medal push drew criticism from former South Barwon MP Michael Crutchfield, who labelled it “outrageous and self-serving”.

Wettest January in 29 years soaks our region HEAVY rain dominated the Geelong, Otway and Bellarine Peninsula region in January. Most areas received at least double the normal January rain and some areas had up to four times as much. Urban Geelong averaged 130mm for the month compared to the average 33mm. The rain that caused flooding over much of northern Victoria in the second week of the month brought moderate flooding of the Barwon River system, with only minor disruption around Geelong. Several roads were closed for a few days in low-lying areas and the infamous Breakwater was once again affected. Water catchments were at 77.2 per cent of capacity by the end of the month. It was Geelong’s wettest January since 1981 when 131mm fell at Moolap Salt Works weather station and since 1970 when 133.3mm was recorded at Geelong Golf Club in Bell Park. Our wettest January produced 142.9mm at North Geelong in 1896. The heavy rains of the second week were caused by a combination of tropical moisture and a low-pressure system moving from the north then an active cold front from the west. It was quite amusing that up

Under the weather LINDSAY SMAIL until a day or two before this major event the Bureau of Meteorology was continuing to forecast “scattered showers” for Geelong despite most guidance models clearly insisting heavy rain.

January temperatures were slightly warmer, by .75C, than the Geelong Airport average. Minimums averaged 14C compared to the mean 13C and maximums were 25C compared to the mean 24.5C. Three days were over 30C, with the top temperature hitting 39C on January 30. On many days temperatures fell 3C to 4C short of the forecast maximum. In fact, Geelong’s maximum only reached 24C on January 31 despite a predicted top of 34C owing to almost 100 per cent cloud cover accompanied by a persistent south-easterly sea breeze most of the day. No severe storms were recorded but one thunder day occurred on January 12. The month had three windy days, with a maximum gust of 72km/h on January 8.

Miracles In Geelong The Potters House Christian Fellowship in Geelong is holding miracle healing meetings with Evangelist Steve Zapata who comes with a wealth of experience in praying for the sick.

‘How about you?’ Evangelist Steve Zapata says, ‘nothing is too hard for God, come as you are, experience the power of God for your life! You have nothing to lose and everything to gain!’.

Steve had recently returned from ministering in Chile and Argentina where he saw many people healed with outstanding miracles. One such miracle was a man who had been deaf in one ear for four years, he came and after one simple prayer was miraculously healed and could hear perfectly!

Every-one is welcome; these meetings should be an amazing opportunity to receive a miracle from God.

Steve is expecting the same thing once again in Geelong. His recent meetings in Fairfield and Wollongong NSW had a huge support. During these meetings there were a number of outstanding miracles. One was Patricia (70) who had depression and was bedridden with a Motor Neuron Disease, she came into the meeting on a walking frame and after prayer she felt stronger and within two days was walking unaided. Another man had a twisted back which caused him pain, after prayer his back was straightened and the pain immediately gone!

Venue ‘orders out feral girls’ BY ERIN PEARSON A GEELONG nightclub has ordered “feral girls� to stay away after a series of violent incidents culminated in a wild brawl last week, according to management. Room 99’s ban has won the backing of patrons who accused young women of drinking to excess and starting fights. Room 99 director Ines Perovic said the latest violence, on Australia Day eve, was the final straw. After the brawl she posted on Facebook that the venue was “over feral girls starting trouble�. “We don’t want you in our venue,� she wrote. “Take your boyfriend’s wrongdoings out on him and your bitchiness elsewhere. Oh, and get some class�.

Ms Perovic called the Australia Day eve brawl a “big one�. The fight spilled out of the venue and onto Ryrie Street, she told the Independent. Management was “fed-up� with young women starting trouble. “Often we equate fights with boys but lately they’ve all be instigated by girls,� Ms Perovic said. “The last eight incidents in our venue have all been instigated by girls. I’m talking about girls punching other girls, not just having words.� Ms Perovic said Room 99 had banned three women and one man for six months over last week’s brawl. A Facebook posting under the name Nanc Vrtacic said women starting fights at Room 99 were

“fresh young ones�. “They have no respect or clue about how to have fun so they (write) themselves off and start fights. Room 99 used to be a lot of fun to go to and still can be. “Maybe this (the ban on troublemakers) will work.� A posting under Mick Malone praised the decision. “Well done. This might get me back in the door.� Other Facebook users suggested Room 99 tighten its service of alcohol. “The answer is simple, ban [serving patrons] too many shots,� posted Christopher Dunstan. “Somebody has to do something to stop fights or Room 99 will be a riot every single weekend.�

Wathaurong â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;to host kinder kidsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; BY ANDREW MATHIESON A KINDERGARTEN destroyed by fire could take years to rise from the ashes in Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s northern suburbsâ&#x20AC;?, a Geelong councillor has warned. Cameron Granger said children enrolled at the Rosewall kindergarten would instead travel to North Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wathaurong Aboriginal Cooperative this year. Finding cash for a new kinder â&#x20AC;&#x153;wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be easy or fastâ&#x20AC;?, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The likely solution will be a community hub built on the site where the Rosewall Neighbourhood Centre is and the

old kindergarten was,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the case, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking millions of dollars and have to find funding for that. Even if we had the funding it would take quite some time to build, so in the next 12 months itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unfeasible.â&#x20AC;? He sought to allay concerns council might never restore the kinder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Rosewall community is quite nervous that because this has been burnt down that the City might pull the services away from that part of the community â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we have no intention of doing that.â&#x20AC;? Rosewall has lost its state primary school and neighbouring high school, Flinders Peak

Secondary College, in the past three years. Cr Granger said a â&#x20AC;&#x153;modernâ&#x20AC;? portable building could be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;mid-termâ&#x20AC;? solution to the loss of the kindergarten. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could have booked the Hendy Street hall, too, but then again we would have had to spend quite a bit of money.â&#x20AC;? Cr Granger said council had consulted â&#x20AC;&#x153;extensively with local familiesâ&#x20AC;? before deciding on the Wathaurong option for temporary relocation. More than 20 children would relocate to the North Geelong cooperatives indigenous kinder facility on Tuesday.

DRYSDALE/CLIFTON SPRINGS SPORTS PRECINCT DRAFT MASTER PLAN The City of Greater Geelong has developed a Draft Master Plan for the Drysdale/Clifton Springs Sports Precinct located on the corner of Grubb Road and Anderson Road, Drysdale. The Draft Master Plan ensures that the long-term sport and recreational aspirations of the active sport groups, schools and local residents are taken into consideration.

RETAIL - URBAN DESIGN FRAMEWORK The draft Urban Design Framework considers how the existing Gateway Plaza shopping centre could expand over time to serve as a sub-regional retail centre for the Bellarine Peninsula.

LARA POOL Bank Street Lara TEL 5282 1563 larapool@geelongcity.vic.gov.au

This would see the retail/commercial floorspace expand from approximately 5,000sqm to potentially over 35,000sqm. Two draft concepts have been developed showing how the existing centre might expand to the north or the west. The concepts include design principles and strategies.

Option 1 includes the rationalisation of some duplicate facilities and the upgrade and addition of key facilities. Option 2 includes the relocation of the Leopold Sportmans Club and bowling greens to the site to create a ‘sports hub’. Public Information Sessions Public ‘Drop-In’ Information Sessions will be held at the Leopold Guide Hall at Memorial Park, Melaluka Road, Leopold at the following times: • Thursday 17 February from 4.00pm to 6.00pm • Saturday 19 February from 10.00am to 12.00noon Council Officers from the planning and recreation divisions and the consultants who developed the draft retail and recreation plans will be available to discuss the draft plans and answer questions. HAVE YOUR SAY Council invites the community to provide feedback on the draft Structure Plan and the Sub-Regional Activity Centre Framework Plan (retail/urban design and recreation plans).

BY ERIN PEARSON WINCHLESEA’S public pool will stay open three extra weeks after councillors agreed to spend $8500 on a trial extension of its operating season. Cr Ron Humphrey said residents must prove the extra expense was worthwhile. “The trial will allow the community to show us

if it really wants the pool open longer,” he said “While council is a prudent watcher of the bottom-line, this trial will determine whether or not the extended hours continue in 2012.” Councillors voted to extend the season after 35 residents petitioned council to keep the pool open longer. The pool will stay open until the end of March under the trial.

NO DEBT..! ... it’s what we all want..! Hot stepper: Geoff Case takes another step. installing windows when the housing industry hit a slump 35 years. The job also keeps him on his toes, just like the light-hearted jibes of customers. “Sometimes when you first walk in they’ll say ‘That wasn’t too many steps for you’,” he grins. For years before his stairclimbing victories, Geoff was a steady middledistance runner who battled his way through most summers at Landy Field, often excelling in cross-country runs. After hearing about Steve Moneghetti’s coach attempting the 1988 Rialto run-up, the unusual course began to arouse Geoff’s curiosity. Back when the event to promote Melbourne’s new tallest building was run as a time trial, Geoff passed more

than 40 other competitors to finish sixth overall. “When I went home I looked at the times and realised the five people in front of me were in the elite group and didn’t have to pass anyone,” he recalls. “I mean the guy who finished fifth had just beaten Rob de Castella in a fun run two weeks earlier. “I realised then I was competing against the elite and it excited me a lot.” A shift in thinking saw training start only a month later the same year with 13 sessions a week, including cycling to Lorne and back, runs up and down Queens Park hill 10 times and running to the top of the You Yangs and around its base. “After I won the Rialto to qualify for the Empire, they allowed me free access

to the (Rialto) building…nowadays you can’t get to it with security,” he says. The consequence was that for the next three years Geoff’s name was nearly as famous in New York than the Empire State Building. The sky was the limit. No building seemed too tall to climb ever again. “I never catch a lift – always the stairs,” Geoff smiles. “Half the time it’s quicker for me than waiting around. “If it’s in Melbourne where it’s 20 or so stories I might think I don’t need to take the stairs today but only because I’m going to do gym training that night. “Anything in Geelong I’d walk to the top.”

GEOFF Case is no more tired of climbing steps than of hearing about the stories of his epic climbs. The window installer marches up and down a ladder in his job several times a day. So when people realise the man behind Geoff Case Windows is the same name that broke records for scaling the world’s tallest skyscrapers, the anecdotes get longer than the number of storeys. “There is definitely never a week and sometimes every day of the week that a new customer loves to talk about it,” Geoff nods. “Sometimes my worker will come back and say ‘They won’t shut up about you’.” The fit 52-year-old could conceivably have powered his way up more steps than any other human. His remarkable stairclimbing feats would make most hit the elevator button in a hurry. Geoff won three consecutive New York Empire State Building climbs, Melbourne’s Rialto run-up and Sydney Tower climb twice each and also posted a historic triumph at Toronto’s massive CNN Tower, all within five years. While beating hundreds up 66 floors at the Rialto ascended the Batesford athlete to the top of his sport, that accomplishment pales into comparison to Toronto’s 110 floors. “It’s all external – external lift on the side of the tower and external stairs on the other side,” Geoff says. “As long I’m inside I’m not scared of heights.” Geoff became an apprentice builder

letters Stink over libraries BELMONT and Geelong West libraries have been refurbished and the city library is on the agenda at some stage if our bumbling council can organise itself. If all this investment is possible it should go handin-hand with a spruce-up of the disgustingly decrepit public toilets near these venues. Unlike Belmont, the Geelong West refurbishment, probably due to restrictions in available space, got none - available toilets are behind the town hall and are disgraceful. Surely this odious situation is within council’s ability to rectify, given its revenues must always be on the increase due to a growing population. Gary Oraniuk Geelong

Give the man meat ANIMAL rights activist Jenny Moxham has had much media coverage on our use of any living beings in the food chain. If we did not use poultry, dairy products, mutton, beef etcetera what then would be the future of this daily source of our food? Farmers would not feed or look after these animals, with the result they and their increasing population would starve. Disease would follow, poor things, and they could then join the endangered list. What would we use to supply the meat-only diet of our pets? Mother Nature created all life on Earth, where the stronger live on the weaker. I urge Ms Moxham to be careful when walking or working in her garden so she does not step on or hurt any living beings. Perhaps she could instead become involved in trying to stop all the wars in which so many children and women are killed. I will stick to my meat lifestyle. I agree with Ms Moxham on how fishing is more fun the harder the fish fights to get away. Fish in water cannot be seen or heard but if a cat or dog was the victim a court case would follow.

Bank on people RECENT floods in many parts of Australia again highlight the urgent need for a genuine people’s bank to fund essential infrastructure and to support the general welfare of Australians. When floods, cyclones, droughts, bushfires or earthquakes cause large-scale destruction the people effected need a financial mechanism in place to aid recovery. A genuine people’s bank with the intent of the original Commonwealth Bank is needed. Most politicians, councillors and bureaucrats seem to lack the moral courage, guts and vision to break free of the hold of the bankers-imposed failure of corporate globalisation, which enslaves people and nations in debt. They advocate raising taxes and rates to support increasing bank-imposed debt instead of the future prosperity of the people and the nation. They also denigrate alternative solutions. When nations lose financial sovereignty they are soon taken over as governments become corrupted. Now is the time for governments to be held accountable to the people. Abraham Lincoln once stated: “The privilege of creating and issuing money is not only the supreme prerogative of government but it is the government’s greatest opportunity”. Money should cease to be the master and become the servant of humanity. This is why a genuine people’s bank is needed now. Bernie Bourke Balliang

If you’re a working parent expecting a child, there’s something else you can expect On 1 January 2011, Australia’s first national Paid Parental Leave scheme was introduced. It’s a new entitlement for working parents, funded by the Australian Government. Taking time away from work for a new baby is a common part of working life. Paid Parental Leave will help parents spend time with a new baby, and help employers retain skilled staff.

up to an 8 week unpaid break between two working days and still be eligible. You can earn up to $150,000 a year (individual salary) and still be eligible. Is it for both parents? Yes, usually the mother must apply for Paid Parental Leave. If you are eligible, you can transfer some or all of the pay to your partner (they need to be eligible too). The scheme gives families more options to balance work and family.

What is Paid Parental Leave? Eligible working parents may get 18 weeks Government-funded pay at the National Minimum Wage, currently $570 a week before tax, to help them care for a new baby. Parents who adopt may also be eligible. Am I eligible? Full-time, part-time, casual, seasonal, contract and self-employed workers may be eligible. You must have worked at least 330 hours (just over one day a week) for 10 of the 13 months before your new baby arrives. You can have

When can I take it? You can claim up to three months in advance, and your pay can start at any time you choose from when your child is born or adopted. It will be paid in one continuous period from the start date and must all be taken within the first year after the birth or adoption. You are encouraged to apply early.

What about employer-provided entitlements? Eligible parents can receive Parental Leave pay at the same time, before or after other employer-provided paid leave or entitlements. The existing minimum entitlement to 12 months unpaid parental leave for long-term employees is unchanged.

Labor’s costly legacy

What does it mean for employers? From 1 July 2011, employers must provide Government-funded Parental Leave pay through their usual pay cycle to eligible employees who have been with their business for at least 12 months. Other eligible parents will be paid through the Family Assistance Office.

YES, LABOR’S desalination plant is likely never to be needed and will cost three times what a moreefficient dam on the Mitchell River would have cost. Such is the huge cost of our homage to the Green agenda and the rains-will-never-come adherence to the man-made global warming myth. If Labor had been re-elected it would have also closed 25 percent of Hazelwood power station to again appease the Greens. This folly has provided frustrated former premier Jeff Kennett a great opportunity to play politics by labelling the $100 desalination tax a “Labor tax” and to suggest the electorate always be reminded of that “Brumby tax” every year on their billS. In playing politics Mr Kennett needs to be careful what he wishes for. While criticising the desalination plant when in opposition, the Coalition was not prepared to commit to building a dam anywhere because it too was captive to the Green agenda. As for Mr Kennett’s suggestion that people be constantly reminded of the desalination tax, people are already taking his advice when it comes to massive rates bills due to his forced amalgamation of local governments and water boards, not to mention the impact of hospital, rail and school closures in country regions. As a footnote, if the global warming doomsayers are correct, the desalination plant will still be useless because it will be swamped by rising seas. Brian Handley Geelong

letters Climate diversion IT IS disappointing to read the claims of ignorant people regarding the floods in Victoria and Queensland (Letters, January 21). Levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere had nothing to do with the flooding. Making exaggerated claims regarding carbon dioxide (CO2) only shows what length some people will go to in order to score political points for the introduction of a big, new carbon tax on everything. Our weather in this part of the world is greatly influenced by ENSO, which is the El Nino/La Nina Southern Oscillation, and this fact is well documented. For proponents of climate change to keep on harping about CO2 is to do a grave disservice to the people of Australia. Instead of our energies and limited resources being focused on the very real climate events that affect most Australians, like floods, attention is diverted to the nebulous pie-in-the-sky global warming theory, which, when you think about it, poses no direct threat to us now or in the immediate future. I wish the vociferous and clamorous evangelists of climate change would find more positive things to do with their time, such as coming up with sensible solutions to drought-proof this country and to encourage the building of more dams. Alan Barron Grovedale

A beef with labelling COLES’ supermarkets are promoting their beef as having “no added hormones”, with the benefit of improved tenderness but is this a tactical exercise so they can have a market advantage when the real reason is exposed? An $11 million National Residue Survey tabled in parliament found that the livers, urine and excreta of commercially farmed beef contained high levels of synthetic hormone growth promotants (HGPs). The report didn’t reveal the maximum safe level of HGPs allowable under Australian standards. The use of growth hormones is approved by Federal Government even though in high levels they are known to cause breast cancer and kidney disease. HGPs for use in cattle were banned in Europe in 1988. The only benefit of HGPs is less time required to reach “kill weight”, meaning higher profits for producers and no benefit to consumers. For more than 20 years Australians have unwit-

Our aqueduct not going down sewer IT’S GOOD to draw attention to the iconic 756-metre-long ovoid sewer aqueduct built between 1913 and 1916 and crossing the Barwon River floodplain and Goat Island downstream from Breakwater (Letters, January 21). It’s also good to be wellinformed if you take others to task and to be careful when making statements about demolition of the aqueduct. National Trust lists the aqueduct as of national significance. Campaigns to save it have been sustained by Geelong National Trust, Geelong Historical Society and Heritage Victoria over many years through countless meetings, consulta-

Firing up history THE ASSOCIATION that represents Victoria’s 60,000 CFA volunteers is preparing to publish its history and we need your community’s help. A team of volunteers at Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria (VFBV) has begun gathering photographs, documents, stories and other items for the history, which looks back into the 19th C entury and the formation of Victorian Urban Fire Brigades Association and Victorian Rural Fire Brigades Association. The associations have been the voices of the volunteers for many generations and we are looking for the triumphs, tragedies and characters that have been part of that story.

Walk this way AS ANOTHER school year begins the roads become a lot busier, not with children walking to school but with parents ferrying them there by car. From an environmental, social and physical health perspective, this is bad news. The rate of children walking to school has declined dramatically since the early 1970s, which is a lost opportunity for physical activity. Children require one hour of physical activity a day for good health. Little wonder we face a childhood obesity epidemic. This year let’s all commit to supporting parents to get their children walking. Dr Ben Rossiter Victoria Walks executive officer

Comedians perform in RAW BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG’S comedic talent will have the opportunity to spread laughter next month when Melbourne International Comedy Festival rolls into town. RAW Comedy, Australia’s biggest open-mic competition for comedians, challenges amateur comics for the chance to win a trip to the Edinburgh Fringe festival The best go on to duel it out in state finals throughout March before chosen finalists from each state meet face-to-face at Melbourne International Comedy Festival in April. This year’s host, Geelong-born comedian and Good News Week regular Dave Thornton, said would-be comedians should come “prepared” and “ready for anything”. “Public speaking really frays your nerves,” Thornton said. “I remember when I first started I’d be nervous for a week leading up to a gig. “It’s very much an Australian culture, the tall poppy syndrome, but it’s a challenge that’s worth taking on.” Thornton’s career started from humble beginnings hosting Channel 31’s live chat show, Studio A Dave. His solo performance at the 2007 Melbourne International

Comedy Festival garnered a bestnewcomer nomination for his show Euro-mission. Thornton has since gone on to appear as a panelist on Talkin’ ‘bout Your Generation and The 7pm Project. “My first involvement was many, many moons ago when I was young at GPAC in the foyer,” he laughed. “I was working as a graphic designer but I’m an attention seeker and it’s hard to get attention when all you do is send a PDF off to the printer – no one gives you a round of applause.” Thornton urged aspiring comedians to shrug off the usual feelings of rejection while striving for their dream. “The first thing people ask is ‘What happens if people heckle and yell out, what do you do?” he laughed. “At RAW people aren’t going to heckle the newbie. That would be like yelling at a three-year-old for not being able to tie their shoes.” Thornton said the competition judges would be on the hunt “for the best on offer”. Past RAW winners and finalists include Chris Lilley, Josh Thomas, Hannah Gadsby, Peter Helliar, Claire Hooper and Tim Minchin. RAW Comedy will be at Geelong Performing Arts Centre on February 12.

BY ERIN PEARSON DESPITE his high school failing to offer opportunities to shine on stage, Geelong actor David Ward was determine never to give up on his dream. Ward is now preparing to step out on stage next weekend as a lead character in the Broadway musical Sweet Charity. “When a school doesn’t really do productions and you’re a performing kid you have to look elsewhere,” he said. “Footlight Productions, which is doing Sweet Charity, is a joy to work for. They attract good people, good performers and good directors, so their productions are high quality. “I don’t know anyone else in town that puts on a better show.” Ward, who previously had a lead roll in a local production of West Side Story, said the group would now meet three to four times a week in the lead up to opening night. “We’ve been rehearsing since October but for the last month its been a massive undertaking,” he said. “Everyone’s as keen as each other to perfect the performance, everyone’s jumped at their roles, but the challenge now is we’ve got to put our heads down and bums up and get the show ready.” Sweet Charity follows the life and loves of Charity Hope Valentine, a dance hall hostess who yearns for the day when Mr Right comes along to sweep her off her feet. In the meantime she lives each day as a gullible optimist who the audience follows through a series of misadventures. Through it all Charity remains hopeful that good things will eventually come to her in life. Director Peter Wills said audiences could expect great 1960s music, dancing and “outstanding” costumes designed specifically

Groovy: Footlight Productions’ Sweet Charity features at Geelong Performing Arts Centre until next week. for the production. “It’s a show that hasn’t been in Geelong for many years and the score is just wonderful, so we thought it was about time the songs were heard again. “People can expect to see big numbers such as There’s Gotta Be Something Better Than This, Hey Big Spender, Rhythm of Life and Where Am I Going? “Audiences will also fall in love with Cara Oliver who plays

Charity – she’s absolutely gorgeous on and off stage.” Other lead cast members include Sarah Power, Zoe McDonald, Reyna Hudgell, David Mackay and Tony Wasley. Sweet Charity premiered on Broadway in 1966, earning nominations for 12 Tony Awards. Sweet Charity will play in Geelong Performing Arts Centre’s Playhouse Theatre from this Friday until February.

aiders Bingo recently introduced paperless bingo to give patrons an exciting new option on playing the game they love. With the choice of playing either the traditional game or the new format, Raiders says patrons have warmly welcomed paperless bingo. The paperless game involves players receiving a touch-pad instead of traditional paper books. The player then marks off numbers when called, with the touch-pad allocating each number to all games the player has purchased. When the player is just one number away from bingo the touch-pad display shows a flag waving and the number required for bingo shows prominently on the screen, building the excitement of playing. As with the traditional format, players still have to shout bingo when the final number is called. The paperless game is fun to use and easy to play. Raiders Bingo is open seven days a week, with two sessions of bingo daily at 12.30pm and 7.30pm except Sundays when midday sessions start at 1pm. Both paper and paperless bingo is available in all sessions. Hot and cold food snacks are available along with free tea and coffee. Raiders can also host fundraising opportunities for local not-for-profit groups. Raiders Bingo centre is on Fellmongers Road, Breakwater. More information is available by phoning Raiders on 5248 8777 or emailing raidersbingo@tpg.com.au.

READERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S RECIPE

1. Preheat oven to 220°C. Place the pumpkin, onion, zucchini and garlic in a roasting pan. Drizzle over lemon juice and oil. Season with salt and pepper. 2. To make the stuffing, place the couscous and apricot in a heatproof bowl. Pour over the boiling water while stirring with a fork. Cover and set aside for 5 minutes or until the liquid has absorbed. Use a fork to separate grains. Add the egg white, mint, pine nuts and lemon rind and stir to combine. 3. Place 1 lamb roast on a clean work surface. Cut a horizontal slit from the centre towards the edge of the thicker end (do not cut all the way through). Open so the lamb sits flat. Place half the couscous stuffing along the centre of the roast. Beginning at the thicker end, roll up the lamb to enclose the filling. Use unwaxed white kitchen string to tie at regular intervals to secure. Place on the vegetables in the pan. Repeat with the remaining lamb and stuffing. Season with salt and pepper. 4. Roast in oven for 40 minutes for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer the lamb to a plate. Cover with foil and set aside for 5 minutes to rest. 5. Carve the lamb across the grain into thick slices. Divide vegetables among serving plates and serve with the lamb. By H Johnson of Bell Park

Cash in on love ash Converters Geelong is unlike the average pawnbroker. With 14 years of operations in Geelong, the second-hand goods store has not only cemented itself in the community as an affordable alternative to regular retail outlets it has also funded many charities including Lions Club of Australia, Kidney Health Australia, Cancer Council and Variety Club appeals. “We love supporting the Geelong community any way we can,” says managing director Jon Gilchrist. “We feel we have made a real

C

impact whether it’s charities, offering a safe, hassle-free environment to sell or loan goods or just for great retail prices.” Family ties between Jon’s father, Bob Gilchrist, as Lions’ National Council Chairman, and several of his relatives battling kidney afflictions were the inspiration behind the generous giving. Cash Converters is extending the love for a special time of the year. Its latest special offer for Valentines Day is up to 50 per cent off all jewellery from February 1 to 14.

“With the price of gold ever increasing it might be a good time to buy gold as investment,” Jon says. Most rings have a professional valuation and all will be sold at less than half of their valuation price. “You’ll find items you won’t find in regular jewellery stores, including overseas gold and many custom made and hand-crafted pieces,” Jon says. “You’ll be genuinely surprised at our range.” Cash Converters is open from 9.30am Monday to Saturday.

ominations are open for Geelong’s 2011 Impetus Youth Awards, recognising and celebrating young people making significant contributions in education, community work, sport, arts and the environment. Winners in each of the 12 categories will receive $500 to put toward their area of interest. Ashlee Keam won the Active Achievement Award in 2009 for her work as a sports coach and for her dedication to helping others become involved in sport. After winning the award Ashlee went on a school trip to Alcoota in the Northern Territory where she was inspired to use her prize money to help young indigenous people. “I just loved the community and the people,” Ashlee says. “The young people had never been anywhere, so I decided to donate the money I won to contribute to them coming to Geelong.” The trip to Geelong was the first time any of the indigenous children had seen a beach. Ashlee has travelled extensively in the past two years, including twice back to the Northern Territory, a surf life saving exchange to New Zealand, a study tour of Vietnam and recent trip to Tiwi Islands with Red Cross. “It (the Impetus award) was the catalyst for a chain of events that have followed and shaped my life.

HIGHTONE Dance Academy follows a philosophy of encouragement, fun, social skills, fitness, coordination and technique. These principals enhance students’ personal and professional development, according to the academy’s Yvonne Mann. Many parents say their children develop social skills and self confidence at Hightone Dance Academy. The academy offers a wide variety of dance including hip-hop, jazz, tap and classical. Yvonne is the central figure behind the school, which has been an influential part of Geelong’s dance community for 33 years. She is a qualified teacher in all genres and also an examiner. In 2008 Hightone students achieved a 100 per cent pass rate in all exams, with most scoring in the highest level. Hightone is Geelong’s only school offering hiphop exams. Concerts are held at Ford Theatre, while students also participate in trophy days and in-house competitions. Hightone caters for all age groups up to young adults, including three-to-four year-olds in specially designed course. Small classes cater for individual requirements, while parents are welcome to observe their children’s progress in each class. Hightone Dance Academy operates in Drysdale, Grovedale and Winchelsea.

Students can make their dancing dreams reality with Concept Dance. Amber, who trained in classical ballet and worked professionally as a jazz and cabaret dancer, found her niche in contemporary

dance while studying a Bachelor of Arts at Deakin University. Concept Dance specialises in teaching contemporary dancing, which is an eclectic mix taking elements of jazz, ballet, cultural dance and many modern styles of the 20th Century. “Not only is the teaching of correct technique vital, an environment of inclusiveness, encouragement and fun is conducive to effective learning,” Amber says. “Our aim is to provide an environment where students feel cared for and are safe to confidently express themselves through the creative medium of dance”. More information about Concept Dance classes is available by phoning Amber on 0412 841 911.

oncept Dance is excited to commence it’s second year of operation in 2011 after a successful 2010. “We’ve had so much wonderful and very positive feedback, it’s very encouraging,” says director Amber Birkin. Concept Dance was born out of a dream to share a love of dancing. “I dreamed of creating a place where like-minded souls could connect and inspire one another; a place where together we could imagine, create, learn and, most of all, enjoy,” Amber says. Dance to me is more than the physical perfection of steps, it’s a beautiful vehicle for communication of the thoughts and dreams of the heart and mind”.

Big day for Ford in Geelong iwanis All-Ford Day is expected to attract at least 1000 special vehicles from more than 30 Ford car clubs this year. To help celebrate its 20th anniversary at Deakin University on February 20, the 2011 Ford event will feature a classic pre-50s theme with a number of vintage and customised Fords from the 1920s and 1930s also making their first appearances at the show. Among the vintage models will be two special vehicles – a 1919 T Coupe and a 1928 A-Model resto-rod – built by legendary Castlemaine Rod Shop founder Rod Hadfield. Falcon XY models will also be out in special force to mark the model’s 40th birthday, which will incorporate the anniversary of Allan Moffat’s historic victory in 1971 when he led every lap in his XY GTHO. Mr Moffat, now an FPV ambassador, will make a special appearance during the day to commemorate the milestone. FPR will also have one of its special V8 race cars on display. As in previous years, a Shannons super rig will be a highlight of the day, serving as a stage for presentations and a hub for enthusiasts to meet and chat to famous Ford personalities and drivers including Shannons ambassador Jim Richards and his now-

t’s ironic that people are starving to death in Third World while we’re eating ourselves to death through obesity in developed nations. Governments have tried to put in place measures to stem the tide of obesity that is consuming us but are condemned for not doing enough to help. When all is said and done it’s really up to we as individuals to take control of our own lives and to implement strategies to stop us becoming our very own health hazards. We need to realise that, contrary to what media marketing will tell us, we don’t need to eat all the time. Unfortunately, because obesity is now so common we tend to think it is normal when in reality it is extremely dangerous. If we put 40 tonnes on a 10-tonne truck the wheels would collapse. It’s the same with the body. We may get away with carrying extra weight in the short-term but in time it usually costs pain and serious medical repercussions. There is no good excuse for putting your body under stress by overeating. The magazine Time interviewed a group of people who had lived to and beyond 100 and the common reason they all gave for their longevity was that they had never overeaten or been overweight. If you have challenges with being overweight, I highly recommend The Weight Works program because it shows how to eat normally to maintain a healthy weight.

Cause and effect of weight loss eight loss must be one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most Googled words and there are masses of information, diets, programs and miracle solutions but none of them seem to have the cure. But I think that is the key: we think of a solution as lost weight rather than addressing the cause, whatever it may be. We can all make sacrifices and burn calories if we really try but, ultimately, massive change for many of us is temporary because it seems unrealistic over the long term. True success in losing weight comes from your lifestyle routine. You need to enjoy life, not have to punish yourself for doing so. Changing your lifestyle doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t start with changing your diet or exercising seven days a week when you have never done so before. It comes from making time for yourself and creating a routine that suits you. Often we worry about being selfish by taking some time for ourselves. But, really, if we put it in context and allocated 30 minutes three times a week, do you really think that, out of all the things you do for everyone else, that one and a half hours in a

WITH SAM JONES whole week is being selfish. So lock it in. From there the eating will come with awareness. You should be able to eat the same as your family but you just need to be aware of the volumes you consume. Weight loss does not come from massive sacrifice, it just comes from awareness of the choices you make. â&#x20AC;˘ Sam Jones is from Contours East Geelong and Contours Geelong West.

centrated in the eastern states,” Mr Morrissey said. “We had to put in a proposal to the Australian State Rod Federation to run the Nationals here in Geelong in 2011 and we were lucky enough to win the rights to host it from several other Australian clubs.” He said the event would host some of Australia’s best rods, customs and modifieds as well as 100 trade stands and activities during the two days.

QUEENSCLIFF will roar to life this weekend when street rods, custom cars and modifieds thunder into town as part of the annual three-day rod run. The Geelong Street Rodders club will host the event which includes drives around the peninsula and other social activities. The public day is on Sunday when the cars and bikes will be on display at the show and shine in Princess Park near the Queenscliff Pier. Club spokesperson Greg Morrissey said the Rod Run had been an annual event at Queenscliff since 1998. “As well as from Geelong there are cars coming from many places around Victoria as well as some cars coming down from Queensland and several from northern NSW,” he said. “On Sunday, we are expecting up to 900 cars on display in the park. “The club has been organising the run since back in the 1980s when it was held at various locations around the peninsula until 1998 when we settled at Queenscliff. It has been an annual event since.” Gates open to the public at 10am. Queenscliff Lions Club will collect a $2 admission charge, to be distributed to local charities. Later this year Geelong Street Rodders will host the 20th Australian Street Rod Nationals when more than 1000 rods and custom cars have officially entered the event and will be on display at the Geelong Showgrounds during the Nationals at Easter on April 23 and 24. “It’s a biannual event in Australia and is held on every odd-numbered year.

Eric beats the ‘hard starter’ Wane’s Wheels GREG WANE

Above: The tractor is equipped with a belt drive from the PTO shaft. Below: The two-cylinder diesel engine was notoriously difficult to start.

No worries: Eric Larson fires up the engine to demonstrate its easy starting after he had painstakingly reset the timing. Pictures: Greg Wane “It is a strange tractor and the key is all in the timing,” he explained. “It has two cylinders and they both fire on one revolution and then it doesn’t fire on the second revolution. And for that reason the pumps have to inject a different amount of fuel and the second one has to give a bit more fuel to throw her through the next revolution when she doesn’t fire, so it was extremely difficult to get it timed right and get the pumps injecting the exact amount of fuel.” Parts weren’t a problem until Eric broke a crankshaft and, considering the German factory only made a handful back in 1953, it could have put the tractor out of action for years until he found a replacement. “Luckily a friend in the International

Club found a good second-hand crankshaft in Germany. “An innovative feature was a diff lock, which was ahead of its time, and there was no three-point linkage, just a belt drive off the PTO shaft.” Eric said the final stage in the restoration was the paint job. “I had to take all the components off and I resprayed them all separately to do the job properly. “With tractors there are many nooks and crannies, so it’s hard to spray. The trick is to spray all the bits individually to start with and then reassemble and give it a final spray to cover all the bits of paint you’ve knocked off putting it back together.” Eric said International made its first

tractor in the early 1900s. They were all battleship grey until November 1936 when the company adopted the familiar bright red. Eric, a retired dairy farmer from Gellibrand, is a foundation member of Geelong’s International Club. “I’ve got 56 tractors at the moment, all International. As a collector I’ve stuck to the one brand. “These were all made by International and weren’t built by anybody else and had an International name stuck on them. “Some are still in a bit of a rough state and others are going okay. I finish one a month if all goes well but if I live to 200 I still won’t have them all done but I’m working on it.”

421642-KS05-11

Eric had been unsuccessful finding any information in Australia about the tractor and its starting problem. “The tech went back to Germany and went through the factory archives and sent me eight pages of information – all in German. “Luckily there was a German engineer who lived up the road from me and he said he would translate it for me. After he read the engine manual he said ‘I am proud to be German but why they built a tractor like this I am buggered if I know’, ” The manual indicated the starting problem was all in the engine timing. Eric soon discovered the timings were set up wrong and it took a long time to get the settings right.

YEARS

ric Larson reckons his little twocylinder diesel tractor is the only one of its type in Australia – and he could be right. Eric said he made his claim a few years back when his tractor collection was featured in a newspaper article. “No one has never come forward and contradicted me, so I’m fairly confident I’m right,” Eric mused. His DLD2 McCormick International tractor is a prototype built in 1953. It’s probably Eric’s favourite among the 56 other tractors in his collection. He said about 100 DLD2s were made at the McCormick plant in Germany, with one sent to Geelong’s International Harvester factory at North Shore. “A chap told me this rare tractor was around and it had been used at the Geelong factory for years. But he said the engine was really difficult to start so when they eventually got it going they would let it run it all day. “It was used at the Geelong plant for about 10 years dragging trolleys and trailers around the factory.” Eric eventually found the tractor in a Seymour enthusiast’s collection and bought it from him eight years ago. “It’s a 14 horsepower and was a bit weathered and mechanically it was reasonable.” Eric said starting the old tractor was the most difficult job of its restoration. “By chance I was at a ploughing competition with the Geelong International Club in New South Wales and a German technician came into out display tent.”

ith the release of Ultra Carbon, the next generation car window tint, TintMaster continues to be the leading name in professional window tinting. TintMaster’s Dave Kershaw says the amazing new window film has been fully evaluated by TintMaster before release and offers enhanced appearance, performance and protection that cannot be matched by any other product. Dave says its non-metal, nano-hybrid carbon technology combines the popular low-reflective black-type finish of conventional carbon films with superior infra-red heat and UV rejection only previously possible with metallic films. Exceptional optical clarity together with signalenabling technology that eliminates interference with mobile phone, radio and GPS operation are other key advantages. The window film is installed on customers’ cars in TintMaster’s modern, purpose-built workshop by the most experienced and technically qualified tint technicians in Geelong. Ultra Carbon also comes with a full lifetime warranty. “When you want the best looks for your car, the best protection for your family, and the best value for money, see TintMaster,” Dave says. TintMaster is at 9 Gordon Avenue, Geelong West. For more information phone TintMaster on 52218877.

Geelong Cup kicks off

Coast kids set for Corio trial A simple way for job seekers and employers to come together

BY ANDREW MATHIESON SURF Coast’s rise up the region’s soccer’s ranks could end at the Geelong Cup, coach Lindsay Falzon has warned. The region’s newest side has astounded the sport’s Victorian community to earn consecutive promotions over its past two regular seasons. Two recent cup final appearances in the pre-season have also coincided with Surf Coast’s emergence as one of the fastest-growing clubs. But the 34-year-old coach does not expect the same heroics from the Geelong Cup tournament’s youngest line-up. “As far as the cup goes, we’re going to experiment a bit this time,” Falzon said. “I’m going to throw in a couple of kids and see how they go.” Falzon nominated 15-year-old rookies Jack Peddler and Lars Halse along with Steven Russell, 16, for big roles in the roundrobin format this month. Surf Coast kicks-off the Geelong Cup with a 2010 finals rematch with Corio at Stead Park this Friday. But redemption for the 1-0 loss to the home side was the last thing on Falzon’s mind. “There are six games to be played and I want to get the most

Cup challenge: Surf C oast captain Rhys Manning and Corio skipper Steven Luczo. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 59641 out of them,” he said. “Out of these games we hope to find out where our players can play so when the season comes I don’t have to scratch my head.” Surf Coast will play in a strong Provisional One competition this year. It was only four years ago the same group of players was running around in the local Sunday league. Falzon expected to select only three “experienced” players in the best side, with the rest of the squad 21 years or younger. “We still don’t want to ruin all the hard work and go back down

(a division), so it’ll be a tough year for us.” Shunning his own team, Falzon has tipped Geelong Soccer and Sports Club to win the tournament under one proviso. “I think Geelong will win it in my personal opinion because they are a very strong side but if North Geelong wanted to win it they easily could.” Surf Coast and Corio kick off the tournament at 8pm before Bell Park meet Geelong Rangers clash at 7pm on Wednesday and North Geelong and Geelong at 8.20pm. The Independent is a supporter of the Geelong Cup.

sport Snapper, tuna turning up heat on anglers On the bite

Alford to the rescue

BRIAN LONG FANTASTIC angling opportunities were available in the bays and offshore over the past week. Some of the best captures were from Corio Bay where snapper dominated but plenty of flathead, whiting and garfish were also available. Wayne Pickert took Leonard Seitshiro and Anthony Crute to his favourite fishing spot just minutes from the city foreshore. Their early start paid dividends, with the snapper coming in thick and fast on a mix of mackerel fillets and pilchards. Terry Shaw drifted along the channel just out from Corio Quay with soft plastics where the flathead were mostly small but for one hour before sun set the snapper fired up. Terry ended up catching seven fish from 900g to a 3.1kg beauty using 80mm Squidgy fish. Casting small, metal, baitfish lures from the rocks at North Shore produced a couple of big pike for holidaying visitor Henry Redpath, the best 95cm. While St Helens has yielded plenty of small snapper recently, the occasional better quality flathead has also been taken, with Tony Dillon landing a pair just on 1kg each with blue bait. Salmon are generally considered elusive in the inner-harbour but Xavier Trott found fish working the surface on the Stingaree spoilgrounds. Casting soft plastics into the action, Xavier landed close on 20 fish and lost a similar amount. Noel Reese found whiting close in to Bird Rock. He persisted through all the small specimens to catch fish measuring 38cm, with the first two hours after sunrise the most productive. Geoff Sparks worked the outer-harbour spoilgrounds where small snapper dominated. However, Geoff’s long drifts eventually rewarded him with three fish 50cm on Turtleback worm soft plastics as well as pike, flathead and two red mullet. Sammy Shorten found the pike easy to catch while trolling small diving lures along Curlewis Bank. He boated a dozen fish, with half extremely small but two reaching 1m. Whiting reports continued to be best from St Leonards to Queenscliff during early morning or late evening using fresh squid baits. Salmon were found off Queenscliff just off the bluff where the best method would be casting lightly weighted soft plastics into the bust ups. Offshore, anglers found the kingfish harder to locate but Mick Close located a small patch off Collendina. He used knife jigs to catch and release eight fish around 2kg each. Striped tuna were running from off Port

Star with stripes: Mick Allardyce with a striped tuna offshore from the Surf Coast.

In the pink: Leonard Seitshiro and Anthony Crute with pinkies from Corio Bay. Phillip Heads all the way to Wye River. At times they were busting up acres of the surface, while on others they were targeting small baitfish or even krill. These fish can be challenging to catch but the best anglers casting small, generally three-inch soft plastics have had the most success. However, Mick Allardyce succeeded with a different method, casting small, metal slugs into the schools and retrieving as fast as his high-speed reel would allow. Numbers of snapper to 1kg were taken from the rock platforms past Lorne, with the fish generally holding in the deeper water. Salmon have continued to be taken from Fairhaven on lure around high tide.

Freshwater reports were limited, with Wurdee Boluc Reservoir producing mainly small redfin and the odd rainbow trout to 1.2kg. Best bait was mudeye hard, while productive lures were generally small, bibbed models in clear, natural colourations. Some of this weekend’s best fishing should be on the outer-harbour spoilgrounds with soft plastics on the late afternoon high tides. Bait anglers should find Stingaree Bay productive around the same time.

GEELONG Cricket Club takes on second placed Dandenong tomorrow on the back of a dominant victory over Ringwood last weekend. The star for the Cats was Cameron Alford who took two cheap wickets on day one to help his side restrict its opponent to just 128. Marc Carson and Trent Walerys did their bit with three wickets each. But it was on Sunday that the everimproving Alford showed his all round worth. He strode to the wicket with his side in trouble at 6/88 but coolly went about peeling off a fine 68 to see the Cats over the line to eventually finish on 191. Tomorrow is the beginning of a huge match for Geelong which is in third placed and playing Dandenong in a game that could prove important to both sides’ hopes of a double chance come March. In Geelong Cricket Association competition, Newtown and Chilwell has thrown a huge scare into the Geelong West camp in the teams’ crucial division one match. The Rams won the toss and batted in fine conditions at Western Oval and at 3/99 would have been eyeing off a big total with Sam Loftus and Ken Spence at the crease. But the Two Blues fought back well, with three wickets each to opener Alex Hickey and Anthony Wilson restricting West to just 209. In reply Newtown wiped two runs off the deficit without too many dramas and goes into day two with a real chance of victory if John Rees and Ben Neville get among the runs. If Geelong West are to win, Josh Vrboski needs to fire up and take a bag. In division two a very similar scoreline sees Alexander Thomson with 197 runs to defend in its do-or-die clash with Waurn Ponds.

Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE As usual Lucas Benci leads the way for the Vikings with a fine half century but there was too little help from his team mates apart from Frog Thornburgh who showed some resistance at number 10 with 22 handy runs. For the Eagles, Troy Oakley and Matt Kennedy both claimed three scalps in an impressive display. Benci will again hold the key tomorrow with the ball but he can’t keep carrying the load himself. Aaron Sarah will surely maintain his good form but the likes of Sean Arnott and Matthew Brown need to add to their modest wickets tally. For Waurn Ponds, Joel Ford and Shane Skene need to score heavily. Bannockburn’s lower order has given their team something to bowl at in its division three match of the round against Meredith. The Tigers slipped to 8/117 last week but 27 apiece to Zach Hickleton and Neville Richards saw them limp to 161. For Meredith, Russell Baddeley was the star, taking a five-wicket haul for just 34 runs. When the two teams resume tomorrow their seasons will be on the line. Meredith will hope Ty Watts, Troy Bott and Chris Moreland can dig in and get the job done but Zach Hickleton leads the league in wickets taken and will be continue to stay there.
