BY KIM WATERS PLANS to upgrade St Leonard’s town hall suffered a blow in a “complete wash out” of the town’s annual festival last weekend, according to organisers. St Leonards Festival organiser Steve Walsh said the event was meant to include a charity auction to raise money for a hall upgrade project. But a “prolonged, violent rainstorm” forced an end to the festival before the charity auction started. “The auction was a complete wash out but that doesn’t mean it ends here,” Mr Walsh said. “We’ve had some donations towards the restoration of the hall and we’ll organise other funding opportunities in the future. “This was only the start of a very long journey to getting the job done.” Mr Walsh said last Saturday’s downpour was a “major disappointment”. “By its very nature it’s a large outdoor event and when the heavens opened up there was nowhere we could retreat to. We’ll make some changes and review what we did this year to potentially allow for more cover next year.” Mr Walsh said organisers were already considering additional marquees and extra cover over the festival’s food court for next year. “Financially, we’ll be okay. It’s not a tragedy because we had contingencies for this kind of thing.” Mr Walsh said St Leonards Progress Association would now lobby State Government in the lead-up to his month’s election to help fund the hall restoration.

Scheme ‘dump’ anger footpath construction on The Terrace included complaints about excessive cost and that the limited number of concrete paths in Ocean Grove was one of the town’s attractions. Residents also argued that holiday makers were the main beneficiaries of footpaths in the area. “The council submissions review panel considered the written submissions and a number of verbal presentations,” the minutes said.

CAN YOU BEAT THAT?

“The panel resolved to recommend (that) council abandon the footpath scheme in its current form.” The Independent revealed in February that council planned to charge Thacker Street residents $302,000 for the special charge scheme. Council was to contribute $210,550 to the $512,754 total cost of the project. City of Greater Geelong gener-

al manager city services Gary Van Driel said a council panel had considered submissions against the Thacker Street footpath proposal and a report was being prepared. Mr Van Driel said council had required an additional investigation about the location and condition of a large Barwon Water main in the area. The report was expected to go before council “soon”, he said.

Sidewalk sales lure thousands BY ANDREW MATHIESON EAGER bargain hunters brought chairs to line city streets hours before the first cash registers started ringing in anticipation of traditional Central Geelong Sidewalk Sales on Melbourne Cup day. Organisers estimate that this year’s crowd figures were “equal to or better� than last year’s 28,500 shoppers who flocked to stalls in Moorabool, Malop and Ryrie streets and inside Westfield and Market Square shopping centres. Last year more than 140 participating retailers reported $1.4 million in sales. Central Geelong Marketing executive officer Jodie Smith-Reyntjes believed the continual growth of Melbourne Cup shopping event was rivalling the city’s Boxing Day sales for popularity. “The Boxing Day sales are often for the big department stores but we’ve still got Westfield and Market Square retailers involved as well,� she said. “There’s at least 134 individual businesses competing with special offers, so it’s a very big sale.� Central Geelong Marketing spent nearly $23,000 promoting the sales in Geelong, Werribee, Ballarat and Colac. A survey of shoppers found that more than half of respondents had travelled into the city especially for the sidewalk sales, she said. Central Geelong Marketing initiated the sidewalk sales concept on Melbourne Cup day 2003 with almost 100 traders to address concerns about the city centre strip traders losing business. “We found most people had Geelong Cup off and when we were open on Melbourne Cup there was nothing open in Melbourne at all, so there was an opportunity to attract people,� Ms Smith-Reyntjes said.

US ‘millions’ bid for city bio-tech industry quite interested in ChemGenex,” he said. “Whether that means at all there would be jobs for Geelong is a very different question – most of our staff is already based in California.” ChemGenex’s head office for finance and strategy is in Geelong but the growth of the company, a larger pharmaceutical market and a larger pool of talent has forced its regulatory and medical teams overseas. Dr Campbell declined to reveal the identity of the American investor but said ChemGenex’s goal was to further commercialise drugs in the US market. He expected shareholders to “raise all sorts of questions” about the bid at the company’s annual general meeting

on November 29 before voting the following month. Dr Campbell, who is also BioGeelong chairman, said the city remained an important part of Victoria’s burgeoning biotech industry. “State Government is committed to growing our biotech presence and really we’ve great support over the past 10 years,” he said. BioGeelong is an industry-based network to assist the growth of the industry in the Geelong region and maximise opportunities from its world-class biotech activities. BioGeelong facilitator Keelie Hamilton said the city had ample attributes to entice international

He said Leisurelink’s two waterslides and other indoor attractions were already proving a “huge” hit with children. A NEW emergency services facility worth $9.5 million will service southern Geelong and new suburbs in the city’s Armstrong Creek growth area after dual pre-election commitments this week. Both major parties promised the facility, which would include police, SES and CFA stations to cater for residential growth in the area.

Ships ahoy GEELONG’S council has signed off on plans to make the city Victoria’s “second cruise ship destination”. A council report recommending a proposed Yarra Street Pier as a cruise berth said the influx of tourists from visiting ships could be worth up to $25 million a year and 108 equivalent full-time jobs.

MORE THAN 400 patients died on Barwon Health’s waiting list for surgery in the past nine years, according to new figures. The state opposition released Freedom of Information documents showing that 440 died before they received elective surgery, with the total likely to go higher because figures for 2009/2010 were still incomplete.

Even if it just translates to the understanding that the knowledge has been formed in Geelong, well, that in itself would be fantastic.” Ms Hamilton said several foreign companies were considering investing in nano-technology, waste and bio-fuel research in Geelong. The industry employed about 450 researchers in Geelong and contributed $15 million to city’s economy annually.

Drysdale honour for peninsula’s ‘shunned’ Nashos BY KIM WATERS THE REGION’S “overlooked” servicemen will earn rare recognition with a plaque unveiling at Drysdale this weekend, according to their regional leader. Geelong and District’s National Servicemen’s Association of Australia Geelong branch president Max Evans said the plaque was “a long time coming” for the ex-soldiers, many of whom were made unwelcome after returning from their duties. “A lot of people were against us,” Mr Evans said. “When we came back from training or from fighting we weren’t welcome in most of the RSLs and it’s only in the past few years that it has changed.” The Australian Government conscripted national servicemen to military service from 1964 until 1972. The Government sent many of the conscripts, called Nashos, to fight in Vietnam. Mr Evans said the only other plaque in the region recognising the Nashos was in Geelong’s RSL. The plaque to be unveiled on the weekend would honour servicemen from Bellarine Peninsula, he said. “A lot of these men served in Vietnam or in Borneo and it’s really important to recognise the sacrifice they made, which hasn’t happened in the past. “The community used to hang a bit of muck on us and say we’d gone for a holiday. “In the old days national servicemen weren’t recognised like other soldiers who fought in the world wars, and it’s taken a long time to change that, so this is really special.” Mr Evans said the plaque would also recognise 212 Nashos who died fighting for their country.

THE REGION’S water storages are rising toward three-quarters full after a weekend of rain. Barwon Water recorded the storage levels at 72.5 per cent on Wednesday after 31.4mm of rain and an increase of more than a half a billion litres in capacity over the previous seven days.

A shareholder meeting in December will consider the American bid for 19 per cent of the Geelong company as others also express interest in the city’s growing bio-tech industry. ChemGenex chief operations officer Dr James Campbell said the interest in Geelong’s leukaemia drug developer had “genuine merit” but the company would be unable to accept a formal offer until February. “Certainly, an American company has made some movement to suggest it’s

DETAILS IN FINALLY FRIDAY

Paper joins anti-violence push THE INDEPENDENT has joined a campaign opposing violence against women. The paper has committed to promoting the White Ribbon Day message throughout November after Geelong’s Mayor issued a call for campaign supporters last month. Independent managing editor Tony Galpin said the paper was proud to help raise awareness of White Ribbon Day. “Street assaults seem to have all the prominence at the moment but violence against women is still a major yet often unspoken scourge on our community,” Mr Galpin said. “The message of White Ribbon Day is for men in particular to speak out on violence against women. Men doing the wrong thing need to know that violence against woman is just not on. “They need to get help.” Mr Galpin said he understood how men’s troubled backgrounds and other issues were often linked to violence against women. “But a lot of men have been through the same or worse problems and don’t respond by assaulting women.

White Ribbon Day Nov 25 “There may be a reason but there’s no excuse.” White Ribbon Day started in 1991 on the first anniversary of a lone gunman massacring 14 women in Canada. The day, on November 25, encourages men to wear white ribbons signifying opposition to violence against women. Geelong activities as part of the campaign include a gathering of supporters to form a giant white ribbon at Skilled Stadium on November 23. More information about the campaign is available at www.whiteribbonday.org.au.

saying councillors should concentrate on their jobs rather than “unwarranted” honours. “Just because a councillor is there for three terms does not mean they’ve made a reasonable contribution to the community,” Mr Crutchfield said. “I suggest Stretch downloads something from the internet and puts it on a piece of cardboard if he wants an award for himself.” Cr Kontelj hit back, calling Mr Crutchfield “hypocritical” for denying councillors the medal while trying to board the parliamentary pension gravy train. Cr Kontelj said Mr Crutchfield was desperate to retain his seat at the November 27 state election to qualify for the Victorian parliamentary pension. “Michael Crutchfield considers this unwarranted and self serving but in his own case believes he should receive a lifelong taxpayer funded pension after only serving eight years.” A City of Greater Geelong spokesperson said the award was a “minimum-cost recognition of the community services contributions of councillors”.

BY KIM WATERS A GEELONG council push for a medal honouring long-serving councillors has won the backing of Victoria’s peak municipal body. Municipal Association of Victoria has resolved to ask Federal Government to approve the controversial medal for councillors who have served 12 or more years. The MAV resolved at its October meeting to request that Federal Government, through Minister for Local Government Simon Crean, “promulgate” the long service medal. The MAV resolution said the award would be known as the local government or public service medal under the Australian honours system. The Independent revealed in September that Geelong council had contacted the MAV suggesting the medal for councillors. The medal request, which Councillor Stretch Kontelj initiated with the support of council, drew criticism from South Barwon Labor MP Michael Crutchfield. He labelled the medal push “outrageous and self serving”,

Mr Eyton described himself as a “good, old-fashioned English conservative” who was never a Liberal party member before his pre-selection. “Being a part of the Liberal party and what I’m striving for now feels like coming home from home,” he said. “I have a real affinity to those conservative Liberal values.”

BY ANDREW MATHIESON AN ENGLISH “working bloke” who settled in Australia nine years ago believes he has more grassroots voter support in the region’s safest state seat than the incumbent Labor MP. Liberal candidate Robert Eyton lives at Anakie and has been linked to five Lara community groups including stints as chairman of the town’s heritage festival and Lions club. He will take on Member for Lara John Eren who is contesting his second election for the seat after relocating from Melbourne’s northern suburbs in 2002 to win the now-defunct upper house seat of Geelong Province. Mr Eyton was confident he had the numbers for an upset. “There’s a lot of community support for the fact that for so many years there hasn’t been someone who’s actually a local representing Lara, so now there’s almost a feeling of excitement and revitalisation,” he said. “There’s a strong chance they’ll have a local representative.” Mr Eyton refused to believe taking the seat was impossible despite Labor holding the seat with a margin of more than 18 per cent. The electorate covers Lara, Corio, Norlane, Bell Post Hill, Little River, Anakie, Batesford and Wyndhamvale. “I can categorically state that I am not just in this to be someone

PUBLIC NOTICES ‘JOURNEY TO SCHOOL’ CAMPAIGN EVERY CHILD MATTERS

DOG AND CAT REGISTRATION AMNESTY 1 - 30 NOVEMBER 2010

CALLING ON ALL FAMILIES OF CHILDREN ENROLLED IN GEELONG PRIMARY SCHOOLS!

The City of Greater Geelong has announced a month long Dog and Cat Registration Amnesty during November 2010. The purpose of the Amnesty is to provide assurance to dog and cat owners to come forward and register their animals with the City without fear of a penalty being issued for keeping an unregistered dog and/or cat.

We offer a nine-day fortnight and fantastic team environment of highly skilled professionals. Applications close 5.00pm Friday 19 November 2010. Join one of Geelong’s largest employers. We offer excellent employment conditions and opportunities to further your career. To apply or obtain a position description, log onto our website www.geelongaustralia.com.au or phone 5272 4273. Only people with the right to work in Australia may apply and a three month probationary period is applicable to most positions.

NOTICE OF COUNCIL MEETING The next Ordinary Meeting of the Greater Geelong City Council will be held at the Council Conference and Reception Centre, City Hall, Little Malop Street, Geelong on Tuesday 9 November 2010, commencing at 7.00pm. Details of issues to be considered will be published on the City’s website www.geelongaustralia.com.au on Friday 5 November 2010. The meeting is open to the public.

CENTRAL GEELONG MARKETING COMMITTEE MEETING The next meeting of the Central Geelong Marketing Committee will be held on Tuesday 16 November 2010, at 7.30am at the Central Geelong Marketing Office, Busport, 17 Gheringhap Street, Geelong. This meeting is open to the public.

GEELONG MAJOR EVENTS MEETING The next meeting of Geelong Major Events will be held on Monday 15 November 2010 at 4.00pm at the Council Conference and Reception Centre, City Hall, Lt Malop Street, Geelong.

Primary schools will be given ‘Journey to School’ booklets to distribute to all families from October to November to celebrate ‘Walktober’ and ‘Children’s Week’. The booklet contains a Safe Driver’s Agreement and Children’s Travel Agreement for families to sign and return to school. Each school has been asked to keep a record of how many agreements have been returned. Two prizes will be awarded: $1000 for schools with up to 300 students and $1000 for schools with 300 plus students. Families who return ‘agreements’ by 3 December will receive a FREE ‘car safety sign’ stating, ‘Thank-you for driving safely – Every Child Matters and FREE fridge magnet/notepad detailing the many travel options to and from school. Look out in November for your FREE six minute DVD which complements the ‘Journey to School’ campaign.

Council adopted the Amnesty which, will operate between 1 and 30 November at its meeting on Tuesday 12 October. Geelong residents are amongst the highest owners of dogs and cats in Australia. As a means to manage domestic pets, legislation requires that local government register all cats and dogs being kept within its municipality. Dog and cat registration and identification are basic, essential functions of municipal animal management. The benefits of pet registration identification are that it: • Links the animal with its owner to enable the return of lost animals. • Provides management information to the City to best manage animal incidents. • Provides a unique source of data about local pet populations and trends. Current data indicates that approximately 75 per cent of dog owners and 30 per cent of cat owners will voluntarily comply with pet registration and identification requirements. Residents who may be keeping unregistered dogs and/or cats may have done so for a number reasons including but not limited to:

PARK SMART – LOCK IT, REMOVE IT OR LOSE IT!

• May have forgotten to renew their previous year’s registration. • Having not registered in the first instance, may not be aware that there is a requirement to register their dog/cat with the City. • Not being on the City’s Animal Database, residents will not have received animal information relating to new/renewed registration of dogs or cats.

The City of Greater Geelong has partnered with Neighbourhood Watch and Victoria Police to promote a Park Smart – Lock It, Remove It or Lose It campaign.

At the conclusion of the Amnesty on 30 November, dog or cat owners who fail to register and identify their animals with Council will be subject to an on the spot penalty of $239.

TEMPORARY CHANGED TRAFFIC CONDITIONS SATURDAY 13 OCTOBER 2010

The campaign is a reminder to residents to lock their car, remove all articles of value or risk losing their belongings and becoming a crime statistic.

Dog or cat owners will be given 14 days to register the dog or cat with the City to avoid further legal proceedings.

To ensure this event is run safely, a road will be closed temporarily. Little Malop Street, between Union and Moorabool Streets will be closed from 7.00am to 2.00pm.

A reflective sticker promoting Lock It, Remove It or Lose It! will be randomly stuck onto resident garbage bins on bin night, in Newcomb/Geelong East and Belmont/Grovedale/Highton areas.

Dog and cat owners can take advantage of half price registration (new registrations only) at the current fee schedule. If your 2010 registration has not been renewed a 12 month fee will apply.

This meeting is open to the public.

CHANGED TRAFFIC CONDITIONS CENTRAL GEELONG FARMERS MARKET

Access for emergency vehicles and deliveries will be maintained at all times.

CUNNINGHAM STREET, GEELONG TEMPORARY ROAD CLOSURE Cunningham Street will be temporarily closed to allow the safe reconstruction of the street (stage A) between Brougham Street and Western Beach Road. The new streetscape will include extended footpaths, lighting, furniture and planting. When: Wednesday 3 November to Thursday 23 December 2010. Impacts on traffic: As part of the works Cunningham Street will be temporarily closed to through traffic. CI051110L

• Would you like to make a difference? • Would you like to improve safety around schools? • Would you like to increase your family’s physical, mental and emotional wellbeing? • Would you like to help win $1000 in cash for your school?

Pedestrian access will be maintained at all times. For further information contact the Urban Design department on 5272 4821.

The roll out of the program will start on Monday 1 November. There will be no inconvenience to residents who are asked to put their garbage bins out at the usual time. The program is being rolled out in these areas first in response to a growing increase in thefts and break-ins from vehicles in these areas.

RAPID GRASS GROWTH We are working hard to control exceptional weed and grass growth throughout the city following one of the wettest periods we’ve experienced for many years. While the recent heavy rains were very welcome, the down side is the affect this rain has had on grass and weed growth in our environment.

2010 / 2011 POWERLINE CLEARANCE PROGRAM The City is commencing its annual pruning program to clear street trees from powerlines. Street trees will be pruned in accordance with the Electricity Safety Regulations 2010 to maintain the required clearance space between trees and powerlines. If you have any queries or concerns please contact us on 5272 5272.

Every available operator and mower is being used and we ask for patience during this growth period. We have a wide ranging maintenance program in operation but the frequency and amount of rain has resulted in exceptional growing conditions for vegetation. This has meant that a park mowed two or three weeks ago is already in need of another mow. As warmer weather settles in and weed and grass growth slows down, we believe our normal maintenance programs will allow us to keep up with the workload and maintain our parks, reserves and gardens to our usual high standard.

Under the weather LINDSAY SMAIL recording 23mm, central Geelong 23mm Barwon Heads 25mm as a severe storm swept through but missed much of the rest of the area. Most forecasters expect similar rains into early 2011 amid a continuation of La Nina phenomenon and a warmer Indian Ocean. Geelong was fractionally cooler in October than the 19-year average at Geelong Airport. Daily minimums averaged 7.4C compared to the mean 7.6C but maximums averaged 18.6C, which was equal to the average. This means the raw, unhomogenised figures showing every month since June has been cooler than average after a warmer start to the year. Higher rain totals are undoubtedly linked to this trend. On the warmest day, October 29, the temperature reached 28C. The coldest overnight temperature was 2.5C on October 2. • Lindsay Smail operates Geelong Weather Services, phone 5241 5332,

WELL-ABOVE average rain across the entire region characterised Geelong’s October. Even the poor excuse for a rain gauge at Geelong Airport managed to record 88mm but most other places across the urban area reported well above 100mm compared to the October average of 49.7mm. It was our wettest October since 2000 when 142mm fell. Urban Geelong has now had over 520mm already this year, meaning we have reached our annual average already. The western Otways also received massive downpours in the final 24 hours of the October recording period, with Lavers Hill the wettest at 91mm. Closer to the region’s water catchment, however, West Barwon Reservoir did not fare as well with only 82mm for the month. The Moorabool catchment performed well, with Sheoaks recording 117mm. The region’s overall capacity has risen over 70 per cent again, with a good outlook for the rest of the year and into summer. Geelong recorded rain on 14 days for October, with the wettest 24 hours dumping over 30mm in some suburbs on the last day of the month amid widespread rain across Victoria as a low-pressure trough extended from the north. October 15 delivered 16.6mm, with 13.8mm falling 10 days earlier. October 12th and 13 were also wet, with Moolap

BY ANDREW MATHIESON AUSTRALIA’S strong dollar is preventing Geelong manufacturers hiring workers, according to an industry representative. But Geelong Manufacturing Council executive officer David Peart said companies contracted to supply Australia’s resource-rich mining industry had held strong during the unexpected currency rise. Other businesses reported saving money on cheaper imports. The Australian dollar peaked above US$1 this week after weeks in the high 90s and a brief stint above parity. Industry analysts have predicted the dollar could rise above the weak American greenback to $US1.10. Mr Peart said the strong Aussie dollar was making life tough for

Geelong exporters. “The high Australian dollar makes local manufacturing less competitive and makes exporting more difficult. A sustained dollar also makes securing further work more difficult,” he said. “There is some evidence that companies are missing out on securing new work to the higher dollar. “I do have some companies that I have talked to about that. It’s not existing work but it’s certainly new work.” “The significant appreciation (of the dollar) in the last two years has put pressure on Geelong manufacturing – no doubt about it.” Mr Peart declined to name the Geelong manufacturers struggling with the high dollar. The manufacturing council was now urging Geelong manufacturers to pursue “innovation strate-

gies” to survive, he said. Geelong’s manufacturing industry boomed in 2008 when the dollar sunk to US60 cents. But Mr Peart said the strength of the dollar was creating a “twospeed economy” among Geelong manufacturers. “Companies with current contracts in place, whether they’re in domestic markets or with the mining and resources industry, seem to be doing relatively okay,” he said. Rip Curl Group financial officer Lachlan Farran said the strong dollar had “somewhat” improved the costs for the Torquay importbased company. “The close-to-parity situation between the Australian and USA currencies recently does give us some greater buying power but we’re also facing significant cost pressures from China in increasing labour and materials costs,” he said.

‘Noise cams’ snap truckies BY KIM WATERS NOISE cameras have listened for rogue truckies in a trial on Geelong’s bypass, Vicroads has revealed. A spokesperson said the roads authority was processing data from “surveillance” on the bypass last month as part of a statewide trial of the cameras. VicRoads would send truckies warning “notices” if the cameras had caught them breaking noise limits. The noise camera trial followed a community campaign for a crackdown on trucks using loud engine braking near homes neighbouring the overpass. The spokesperson said VicRoads was unable to stop engine braking

but could act on loud trucks. “Currently there are no laws in Victoria that specifically address engine brake noise limits. However, all vehicles must comply with the general vehicle noise emission levels contained in Australian Design Rule 83/00.” The spokesperson was unable to say when or whether noise cameras would return to the bypass but that the technology would reduce noise on Victorian roads “over time”. “The surveillance activity includes the opportunity to return to locations where noise from trucks is a particular problem. The technology to enforce the standard is still being fully developed and tested before appropriate laws

can be considered. “The technology is still under trial in New South Wales and South Australia. The results from these trials are not expected until mid-2011.” But Kevin Brownlee, who blames the bypass noise for forcing him out of his Waurn Ponds home, believed the camera trial was just a “political stunt” to “shut people up”. “It’s just pandering to the public without actually achieving anything,” he said. “At the end of the day there’s no law about how much noise a truck can make. “They can put noise cameras everywhere but what can they legally do?”

BY KIM WATERS OVER 2000 bras are scattered throughout two women’s gyms in Geelong after donors opened their hearts – and drawers – to a call for help. The Contours gyms accepted donations of everything from sports bras and lacy lingerie to maternity cups and standard beige favourites for struggling women in Third World countries. The gyms joined forces with the Independent to seek the donations for Project Uplift. Contours’s Sam Jones said the bras would make “unimaginable” differences to recipients’ lives. “Aside from the obvious health benefits of proper support, in some countries underwear is seen as a sign of prosperity,” Ms Jones said. “The physical and sexual abuse of women who can’t afford such a luxury because of their social standing is horrible.” Ms Jones said the response to the second annual appeal for bras was overwhelming. “It seems to have touched a lot of women.” Ms Jones said Contours would continue accepting donations until Wednesday.

BY ERIN PEARSON A RADIO announcer has challenged “high profile” figures to sleep on the streets of Geelong with him next week. K-Rock’s Leroy Brown said he was seeking sports people, politicians and big business owners to help him promote the plight of the city’s homeless. Mr Brown said he would spend five days on the streets reliant only on the services available to the homeless in Geelong and a dole-size allowance of $230. “We don’t really know how many people are sleeping on our streets and near our rivers, he said. “A large percentage of society has a perception of (homeless) people that’s crap. These homeless people need our compassion.” Mr Brown denied his plan was a stunt to drum up publicity and ratings. His four nights on the street would begin Monday, he said. Mr Brown expected to spend nights with people often homeless in Geelong, such as recently released prisoners and the mentally ill. “I don’t know what to expect but I don’t think any homeless person does,” he said. “I’ll have to use the services available to me and if I spend

The house heroine ANDREW MATHIESON SITTING in the sunniest room of Geelong’s Anam Cara House, Laurel Ling thinks about years of sweat and tears then starts to well up herself. “Oh, I still get emotional about it,” Laurel says, “because the house really was a challenge.” She gasps for a moment, struggling to hold back tears. “This is very special to me.” Palliative nurse Laurel and co-founder Diane Wright almost literally built from the ground up the respite care facility for patients in the final stages of their lives battling incurable illnesses. Laurel remembers the day – Easter Friday, 2000 – when Diane, a leader of the former Geelong Hospice Care, uttered to her over the phone: “Come on, let’s do something about it”. Palliative care in the region was previously akin to ad hoc nursing. The nurses would travel from home to home to comfort dying patients. “The dream has taken 10 years,” Laurel contemplates. “Technically, from my and Diane’s conversations you’d say it has taken at least eight years but the thought of hospice care like this one has been alive since the 1980s.” The Anam Cara House dream first took shape when Geelong priest Father Kevin Dillon convinced local parishioners and Melbourne archdioceses to put up the former St Mary’s building for respite care. “Father Kevin started thinking there are just two priests in

Founder: Laurel Ling in the garden at Anam Cara House. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 55703 this big, old house and it’s in the perfect position between St John of God and Geelong Hospital,” Laurel explains. “But this house was a house of disrepair.” So a steering committee raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to bring the distinguished old lady up to scratch. Laurel’s personal mission was to open upstairs accommodation for families wanting to sit by the bedside of sick loved ones day and night. The pride she takes in showing off the tasteful rooms is only equalled by her commitment to the job.

“I have a passion for respecting people – it’s nothing special or clever,” Laurel says as she starts to tear up again. “You’re just as important as someone like Barack Obama.” Laurel started palliative nursing in 1982, right from the beginning of Geelong Hospice Care, when she was still naive to the task ahead. “I actually didn’t know what the word hospice was – I had to look it up,” she grinningly admits. “Back then it was called hospice care, too. Palliative wasn’t really used.” Laurel was one of four

Geelong carers who worked a combination of late evenings, overnight stays and hard weekends to ease the pain of patients. Time sheets had the nurses working standard hours but Laurel tells the reality was closer to 60 hours a week. It was a tough initiation. “It was absolutely amazing what you did because you got called out at two o’clock in the morning and then the beeper would go off again,” she recalls. “We didn’t have mobile phones, so in all hours of the morning you’d be going to find a phone booth to ring up to find out who’s next.” Laurel toiled for years during great change when Barwon Health officially took over palliative care in 2000. It went from a “Rolls Royce” service for the very few who could afford it to, as Laurel jokes, a “Holden” covering a wide area and more patients. “Back then there were no homes like this or an acute hospital – that was it,” Laurel says. Laurel’s reputation for years of hard work to finally bring a respite care facility to Geelong were eventually overshadowned by son Cameron’s growing fame on the footy field. But being identified as the mum of Geelong Football Club’s captain has given her a laugh or two. “It’s rather gorgeous,” Laurel smiles. “I’d be talking to someone who only knows me as Laurel. Then they’d look at my nametag and ask whether I’m any relation to Cameron. “I’d say yes then they’d ask what relation am I. “When I’d say I’m his mother they’d go ‘Oh’ and sometimes even ask whether they can touch me.”

letters MP deaf to us

It’s time Surf Coast Shire showed some respect for Bells and its stakeholders. The shire’s management of the reserve is REGARDING section 4C of Geelong’s world’s worst practice. ring road, Michael Crutchfield stated that Maurice Cole “no-one is saying we should change it” Jan Juc (Independent, October 22). The residents of Grovedale and Waurn Ponds are saying he should change it. We are saying no to noise, pollution, danger, health hazards and denial of use of MY ELDERLY mother rang me concerned about the charge for parking at Avalon our own backyards. Planning was changed in Footscray Airport after reading David Charles’ letter in last week’s Independent. where, unlike Mr Crutchfield, the MP was I don’t know whether he has some conprepared to support constituents against the nection with the parking company he proworst excesses of the Brumby Government. moted but his figures were just wrong. Lee Gladwell Rates quoted on the internet are $24 for a Grovedale day at Avalon, $29 for a day at Melbourne

Avalon is cheaper

Bells disrespected

Airport and $20 for a day at the company mentioned. Two days at Avalon are $36, two days at the company mentioned are $32 and two days at Melbourne Airport are $46. Seven days at Avalon are $49, seven days at the company mentioned are $89.50 and seven days at Melbourne Airport are $77. Mr Charles’ letter implied it is always cheaper at the company mentioned. However, if parking for a week Avalon’s rates are much better. If a shorter parking period is required it would cost more than $4 in petrol to drive from Avalon to Melbourne Airport and return, so where is the saving? By the way, there are cheaper daily rates at other private companies near Melbourne Airport than those of the company mentioned. Mr Charles’ letter caused my mother unnecessary worry because it was incorrect. The facts should have been checked before the letter was published. On a further note, I would like to see more flights out of Avalon due to the cheaper cost, convenience and time saved on travelling to Tullamarine through nightmare traffic. Robert Ward Ocean Grove

SURF Coast Shire recently sacked Bells Beach Advisory Committee (BBAC) a year before its term finished without adequate explanation (Independent, October 1). BBAC was informed of the sacking decision by email and the shire immediately shut down communication with committee members. Why? The shire’s Bells Beach master and management plans sent to State Government for funding were not what BBAC discussed or had seen despite promises it could fine tune the details at the implementation stage in the following 12 months or so. One of the issues with the new plans is a proposal to remove a large number of car parks for replacement with large coach and minibus bays and to create a roundabout in the Bells car park for the big coaches. For years we were promised a quota/pay system for commercial buses in the Bells reserve. What we got was more buses, fewer car parks, no quota system, longer queues at the toilets, badly parked buses blocking in cars and bus passenger litter, all of which reflects the shire’s lack of management skills in looking after the world’s first surfing reserve. The state of the reserve, with a broken and unserviced toilet system, broken drains, rubbish, areas contaminated with human faeces and now an unsustainable I REALLY wanted to enter the competition plan for more people will add further to the to rename Barwon Heads Bridge (Independent, October 22) and I’d thought enviromental pressure on Bells.

of several suitable names. Trouble is I don’t think any of them would be acceptable to the committee, probably not even printable. Helen Kieran Ocean Grove

Listen, I will DO OUR politicians, Lisa Neville and Michael Crutchfield and the rest, refuse to accept they should represent the wishes of their people? The MPs in State Government constantly steamroll through projects that the people don’t want or haven’t been asked about – think Barwon Heads Bridge, the siting of the ring road through Grovedale and many other planning matters. Think water, the desalination plant and Melbourne-Geelong pipeline. At public consultations they were the last things the community wanted but now our water bills will go through the roof in the next few years. And water fluoridation was forced on to us and into our bodies via our kitchen taps. Enormous numbers stated they did not want fluoride through formal non-consent notices and packed town hall meetings. Did our local members care? Did they poll their communities? I believe the job of an MP is to listen to voters, determine their will and stand for it in parliament. Keith Oakley Independent candidate for South Barwon

Cop that PERHAPS the policeman who drove his vehicle east along Little Malop Street, across the footpath and into Moorabool Street will not be aghast when the people who saw him decide to do the same thing. If we are to expect motorists to do the right thing perhaps we can expect the enforcement agencies to do it as well. I certainly hope the officer intended to book himself when he got back to the station. As we know, our police lead by example. Gary Oraniuk Geelong

ON OCTOBER 17 Barwon Rowing Club held its open day for season 2010/2011. It was the first official function for our newly semicomplete boatshed. We had well over 80 people in attendance and, although the weather wasn’t that good, a great time was had by all. This season is the clubs 141st and it was starting to look like our new semi-complete boatshed would stay incomplete for some seasons to come. We were lucky to have both South Barwon MP Michael Crutchfield and Liberal candidate for Geelong Alistair Thomson in attendance and both have made pledges toward our clubroom redevelopment project that should enable us to continue with the planned next stage to fit-out toilets, change rooms and disabled access to the first floor. I thank City of Greater Geelong through councillor Bruce Harwood as well as Mr Crutchfield and Mr Thomson for their support of Barwon Rowing Club. If it wasn’t for their valuable advice and guid-

Docklands here SKILLED Stadium should be bulldozed and replaced with a 60,000-seat Docklands replica. City of Greater Geelong, lobby affiliate G21, Committee for Geelong and Geelong Football Club should press federal and state governments and a reticent AFL commission to commit visionary funding beyond self-serving parliamentary terms and hazy footy timelines. A paltry seven AFL matches at Skilled Stadium in 2011 against mainly second-class opposition is nonsense. Former VFL president the late Sir Kenneth Luke was a visionary. He didn’t have $1 billion-plus in TV rights at his disposal but he knew that Waverly Park was needed in a growth corridor. Successive State Governments dudded the vision by failing to invest in rail infrastructure. A cutting-edge Skilled Stadium with rail and excellent freeway structures could reignite Sir Kenneth’s smarts. Victoria, should it lay claim to being the heartland of footy’s elite level, requires another Docklands. While the AFL’s plans to grow the game are commendable, television ratings and its associated dollars by and large come from that heartland. The regional knock-on benefits of a rebuilt stadium would be open-ended. Retiring Geelong Football Club President Frank Costa flagged a possible ongoing club-mentoring role. Should that occur he would be the ideal person to collar federal, state and local governments on why Skilled Stadium shouldn’t become an enlarged Docklands as well as sounding out investors, bearing in mind that governments and commissions come and go.

I SEE City of Greater Geelong is advertising for a “certified gardener”. Could be dangerous – might run amok. Perhaps the City wants a certificated gardener, which is one with qualifications rather than one who has been certified. And while I am being pedantic, what does it mean when, as I so often read, a house is “architecturally designed”? Has it been designed by an architect or by some person on their PC using a program that came free with an issue of Homes and Gardens? And do I sound like a grumpy old man? John Fairnie Highton

SHOPPING CENTRE

25 years and still going strong aurn Ponds Shopping Centre is celebrating a whirlwind 25 years since opening in 1985 as Town & Country Shopping World with a Woolworths supermarket and 12 specialty stores. The facility expanded in 1996 to include Target before the opening of Reading Cinemas in 2000 and a Coles supermarket in 2002 when the name Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre was officially adopted. Now the centre stretches along Pioneer Road from Princes Highway to Waurn Ponds Creek as a home to over 80 stores servicing 80,000 households and 250,000 residents within a 15-minute drive. Delivering the best in fresh food and groceries, diverse dining and cafe options, family fashion stores and services such as hair salons, dry cleaning, travel agencies, banks, a Tattslotto and key cutting, Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre is the total shopping package. The centre offers free three-hour and allday car parking, while the Readings complex features stadium-style seating and state-of-the-art Dolby surround-sound. Town & Country Lotto’s Sharyn Cole and Debra Walker say their long-term tenancy at the centre has been good for business. “We opened HJ Cole Accounting when the centre first opened its doors,” Sharyn says. “We saw the centre’s potential and jumped at the chance to own and operate several businesses over the last 25 years, including a sub-newsagency and gift shop, the Bendigo Bank and Town & Country Lotto. “Living locally and raising three children, we’ve watched Waurn Ponds grow along with our kids. The Centre has evolved to meet more than just basic everyday needs – it’s now an entire entertainment complex that draws people from as far as the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula. “Our lotto store is known as Geelong’s

There’s a $31 million super draw due on December 31, so be sure to grab your quick pick, choose your own lucky numbers or join in one of our many syndicates for your chance to win.” Another centre veteran, Frank Rossi of Town & Country Pizza & Pasta, remembers when he opened his first shop 22 years ago.

“Our family started our first pizza shop in Ocean Grove in 1985. Living locally we saw the huge potential here at Waurn Ponds and when the centre opened that year we knew we wanted a piece of the action, so in 1988 we opened Town & Country Pizza & Pasta with three of us working the business,” Frank says. “Today we have three additional stores and employ over 20 people. My Mum

still approves our qualified chefs and the menu, so our cuisine is guaranteed, 100 per cent authentic home-made Italian.” Frank says his restaurant’s age-old favourites are the tasty Country Special Pizza or the delicious Matriciana pasta. This month customers can enjoy two large pizzas for $29.90 – a saving of $6 or two large pastas for $27.90 – a saving of $6.

“Future centre development is exciting and can’t come soon enough,” Frank says. “With more stores to choose from, more car parking and a larger Coles supermarket, Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre will be a force to be reckoned with.” Pam Marchant, founder and manager of Chae La Rae Hair Salon, is another long-term retailer who has enjoyed 19 years at Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre. “I’ve seen some big changes here in line with phenomenal population growth,” she says. “I remember when the centre was surrounded by open grassland and now the estate behind the centre is home to hundreds of families. “The centre is poised to benefit from future growth at Armstrong Creek and even more housing growth through to the Surf Coast. And now that the new Leisurelink is open right across the road there’s even more reason for families to use the services and enjoy all that Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre has to offer.” Jetset Travel owner and operator Greg Cooke opened at the centre 20 years ago with one employee. “Now we employ seven people and our personalised service, particularly for seniors’ travel and small escorted groups, ensures our business continues to go from strength to strength in-line with the centre,” Greg says. “Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre is not just a place to work, it’s a community in its own right with loyal retailers and clientele. Being locally owned and operated means dollars spent in the region are kept within the region. “As part of the 25th birthday celebrations we’re offering 25 per cent off travel insurance, $25 off early-bird bookings for UK and European travel and free holiday insurance with our African adventure trip due to depart next April. “We’re excited about the future here and thank our local community for their support over the years”.

‘Cheap’ loans help n interest-free loans scheme in Geelong has successfully helped up to 40 low-income earners and aged pensioners in its first 12 months. No Interest Loan Scheme chairman Peter Patterson says the loans were far from handouts. “We’re specifically looking at doing more loans for aged pensioners,” he says. “Traditionally, we can say aged pensioners are very proud and loath to avail themselves of any support they see as a handout. “While we’re a community based, not-for-profit

A

organisation, our loans are not a handout and we encourage anyone on a low income or a pension to apply for a loan, including aged pensioners.” Loans can be paid back over 12 to 18-month periods for as little as $10 to $30 a fortnight. “Even this week we had a lady ring up who said she had a fridge that was 30 years old and needed defrosting every couple of weeks, so it had become a pain in the butt,” Mr Patterson says. “If aged pensioners are looking to replace outdated whitegoods or televisions,

we certainly want to encourage them to apply.” Mr Patterson added that now is a good time to buy a new digital TV after authorities switched off the analogue signal. Clients of any ages only need to provide a valid health card or a pension card to be eligible. Mr Patterson has been happy with the public response. “We had an increase in enquiries after the Independent’s last article and we’re now at the stage where we’re geared up and ready to take on more loans.”

Henderson constructs fame BY ERIN PEARSON “I’M no Justin Bieber�, declared Ceres musician Cameron Henderson, “but I have performed in front of 100,000 people�. The builder, farmer and a father of three drew the parallel with the American teen star while speaking to the Independent about his rise to stardom at the tender age of 43. Henderson recently released his debut album, Angel Without Wings, following his rise to success on television’s Australia’s Got Talent. He considered himself “blessed� to be even chatting about his fast-found fame but was keeping his feet on the ground. “I’m still just a dad,� Henderson said. “I’ve got a family and a house at a time in my music life where most other musicians are in a make-or-break time. “People ask how I handle being famous, being a celebrity, but I have to laugh – I’m still wearing a nail bag out answering calls and meeting building deadlines. “I’m a builder in the music world.� Henderson said his rise to fame had come with “shocks�. “When we were on Australia’s Got Talent, somehow because they said I was a builder everyone got hold of my email address – I was inundated,� he laughed. “I got a letter this morning from a guy who lost his three sisters to cancer and he has written this really nice letter about how much the Three Beautiful People, which I wrote about my kids, relates to his sisters.�

A self-confessed family man and “lawn mower�, Henderson said he first dabbled in music as a teen. “I played the trumpet at school and ended up in a jazz band but you can’t sing and play the trumpet, so I hadn’t really thought about singing too much,� he chuckled. “But when I heard James Taylor sing, the guy who is the ultimate, who I even named my son after, I was in awe.� A humble Henderson talked appreciatively of the opportunity to share his “life experiences� with the world. “People have invested money and good faith in me,� he said. “These people who have been in the industry so long grabbed me, a builder who can’t read music, and said ‘We reckon you’ve got something’. “It’s easy to get a compliment from someone but these people have put their money where their mouth is and I owe it to them to do them proud.� Henderson was preparing to perform at an Australia-versus-New-Zealand Golf Skins Challenge in which he would rub shoulders with golfing superstars such as John Daly. Despite trying to keep a level head, mum does keep ringing me when she adds another newspaper article to her scrapbook,� he laughed. Henderson will support Kasey Chambers at Geelong Performing Arts Centre this weekend before a solo show at Geelong RSL on December 3.

aiders Bingo is excited to introduce a new and innovative bingo game to the centre. Manager Russell Enders says the new paperless game offers customers an alternative method of playing the bingo everyone knows and loves. “As numbers are called players mark them off on a touchpad,” Russell says. “The number will then illuminate and if players make a mistake they can simply touch the number again to unmark. “But remember to shout bingo when you have won.” Russell says the automatic system is new, easy and exciting.

The secrets of a ‘magic man’ BY ERIN PEARSON MAGIC is like being a kid in a James Bond world for international illusionist Cosentino. “You never grow up,” he laughed. “When I started in magic it was such a rush and it’s allowed me to live out my fantasies.” Speaking to the Independent ahead of his show in Geelong this month, Cosentino said magic enabled him to take people on a journey between reality and illusion. “When an audience sees a good illusion they understand it’s not real but they suspend this belief and demand you take them on some sort of magical journey,” he said. “It’s more to have that innocence, not tarnished by the fact something’s impossible. “You need to think there are no limitations.” The three-time-Australianaward-winning magician, Guinness World Record contributor and nominee for a prestigious

2007 Helpmann Award, Cosentino has gone places with his illusions. The self-proclaimed hand magician and “grand illusionist” said he “fell in love” with magic as an adolescent boy and never looked back. “When I was 13 I remember seeing David Copperfield at the tennis centre,” he recalled. “It was the first magician I’d seen. He was a rock star and thousands of people came to the stadium to watch him fly. “He did something we all wish we could do. He tapped into something that’s so powerful.” Cosentino said he later began borrowing magic books from the public library to read about the history of his “idols” Harry Houdini and Harry Blackstone. “I was a very shy kid at school and magic gave me a skill that was very unique. “Magic is about power and seemly having control over things. I could do things no one else could do. “There is a mystery behind

being a magic man.” Cosentino said that convincing other magicians to “share their secrets” had proven a challenge. “As a young kid in a magic shop you had to prove you were worthy because they were tot some degree protecting their secrets,” he said. “What disappoints me is when magicians in America come out and reveal tricks. Why do that, do we really need to destroy it? “All you’re doing is taking away the wonderment of letting people believe.” Cosentino said his passion for magic never wavered despite other illusionists blowing their secrets. “I’m still pushing to do a lot of things,” he said. “You don’t jump into a tank full of sharks because its fun. I’m doing it because it’s something I’m obsessed with, I’m doing it because I love it.” Cosentino will perform at Deakin Waterfront Café on November 14.

‘GREEN UP’ your pool this summer and save. W ith electricity prices at all time highs South Geelong franchisees Greg and Pam Bailey are urging pool owners to ‘green up’ their pools in time for summer swimming season and save up to 70 percent on their power costs. Greg Bailey said there were a variety of ways pool owners could save on their ongoing pool operating costs and save the environment too. “First of all check that all of your pool equipment is in good working order especially pumps and filters,” he said. ‘Older pumps may be using huge amounts of power but not doing their job in the pool properly because they are simply past their use-by date.” ‘If your pump needs replacing, make sure your next pump is enviromentally friendly. Older style pool pumps always run at maximum capacity but environmentally friendly pumps can vary their speed depending on

the task, and have been shown to save 70 percent of pump power costs.” The Viron P300 from Hurlcon is one of these pumps and comes with a 4 year warranty exclusive to PoolWerx. “Not only do these products save money on the power bill, they also drastically cut your pool’s carbon emission levels. Make sure you also use a pool blanket which can cut out up to 97 percent of water evaporation.” “If you have a rainwater tank top-up your pool with this water, just remember to be vigilant with your water testing to make sure no bacterial nasties are transferred from your tank to the pool.” Free water testing is available in store. PoolWerx is a leading Australian-owned pool and spa care network with over 220 active franchise territories of retail outlets and mobile vans across Australia and New Zealand.

GREEN TIPS: • purchase an environmentally friendly pool pump • purchase a pool blanket • top up with rain water • check for cracks and leaks

STOP SNORING AND TIREDNESS FOR CHRISTMAS Dr George Klein’s My Sleep Clinic treats snoring and sleep apnoea. George says snoring plays havoc with about 50% of Australian adults. Snoring not only affects relationships, but also affects their holidays and, with Christmas coming up, it’s a big problem. “They might have to share accommodation with their relatives or in camping sites – snoring can be really loud,” George says.

Stop Snoring & Tiredness by Christmas

Snoring can also be associated with sleep apnoea, which causes sufferers to sleep poorly so they wake up tired and feeling unrefreshed. It also causes mood wings, lack of concentration and it can also affect their driving ability. “That’s where the police advertisement comes from that drowsy drivers die – it’s basis is really in sleep apnoea,” George says. “What’s more, most people have no idea that they have this potentially serious condition. “So there is a huge cross for snoring and sleep apnoea.” At My Sleep clinic, George and his team provide scientifically-proven treatments that can change

Does snoring disrupt your relationship? Are you sleeping in a separate room to your partner? Is snoring embarrassing when you travel with friends?

Stay cool with The Good Guys anasonic’s new 2010/2011 air-conditioning range is all the rage this summer at Geelong’s Ross Parke The Good Guys.

uninterrupted comfort. Another feature is an air purifying system, which is 15 per cent more efficient than before. The system catches dust particles and brings them back to a large filter to provide a healthy, relaxing living environment while also providing an enhanced atmosphere for allergy sufferers. Another great product new to Ross Parke The Good Guys is a portable air-conditioner from Olimpia Splendid with Italian styling and design. The Olimpia Splendid comes in three sizes: 3.5kw, 4.1kw and 4.7kw.

The range is ideal for caravans and small to large rooms in which it would be difficult to install split-system air-conditioners. The Splendid range also has the advantage of being easily transported between rooms. The level of comfort is surprisingly high for a portable device thanks to the innovative air supply system. Ross Parke The Good Guys also has a huge range of evaporative coolers and pedestal and tower fans. Customers are always welcome to chat with the friendly staff at Ross Parke The Good Guys where buyers can “pay less, pay cash”.

(In Alfa Romeo speak DNA doesn’t stand for Deoxyribonucleic Acid, but rather for Dynamic, Normal, All-weather) and refers to the ability of the car to run in three different driving modes. Electronic changes to the throttle, steering and suspension systems give the MiTo quite a different feel on the road depending on the surface and/or the driver’s mood at the moment. This system really does work and you can feel the MiTo become more alive as you advance through the sporting options. Interior room is fine in the front seats as Alfa Romeo has wisely chosen to put space priority into this area. The best news of all about the new Alfa Romeo MiTo is that it is priced from just $31,490 for the standard version and the Sport isn’t a lot more expensive at $37,490. Statutory and delivery charges have to be added, contact your Alfa Romeo dealer for a driveaway price. Alfa Romeo Mito is a huge amount of fun to drive, with even everyday trips bringing a smile to the face thanks to the chassis dynamics and engine performance – and then there’s the styling.

BY ERIC BLAIR he Alfa Romeo MiTo (the name is a contraction of the names of two Italian cities, Milan and Torino) is a three-door coupe with a stylish body dominated by big round lights front and rear, a domed roof, sharply rising waistline and a cabin that tapers significantly in width as it approaches its rearwards extremities to give a neat, sporting look. Of course, the front has a large Alfa ‘shield’ radiator grille, as well as wide lower grilles to give a funky/sporty look. The bold Italian shapes of the 2010 Alfa Romeo MiTo continue on the interior. There’s plenty of oomph to the colours and shapes and this cabin really is a great place to be. Both models sold in this country; the MiTo and the MiTo Sport are powered by a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol engine. This is a new design four-cylinder engine that’s powerful yet very fuel efficient. It comes in two stages of tune, producing 88kW / 206 Nm in the standard version, and 114kW/230Nm in the Sport. The torque figures are most impressive and naturally aspirated engines with the same output would need to have capacities of around 2.1 and 2.4 litres respectively. Fuel consumption is rated at just 6.1 litres per hundred kilometres for the 88 kW engine and 6.5 litres in the 114 kW Sport. These numbers are getting down to the diesel end of the economy scale, yet you don’t have to put up with the noise and harshness of a diesel. On the road the lower powered of the Alfa engines is adequate in the way it performs, though longtime Alfistas will miss its sweet nature and willingness to rev. On the other hand, the 114 kW Sport engine is far more satisfying to sit behind and seems sure to bring a

Big Tucker is a legendary car Waneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wheels GREG WANE The star at the recent Motorclassica event at Melbourneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Exhibition Building in was a 1948 Tucker sedan, estimated to be worth more than $1 million. Initially named the Tucker Torpedo it was an advanced car conceived by American businessman Preston Tucker in 1948. Only 51 cars were built before the company folded on March 3, 1949, when Tucker was brought undone by legal and financial battles. His cars have since become legendary. Tucker, a flamboyant carmaker had grand dreams in the heady years after the end of the Second World War. During this period, the public was ready for totally new car designs, but the big three Detroit carmakers had not developed any new models since 1941. This provided opportunities for small, new carmakers who could develop cars more rapidly. Studebaker was the first to introduce an all-new postwar model, but Tucker took a different tack, adding safety to his design brief plus adding as many innovative features as his engineers could come up with, and a modern styling. His specifications called for a water-cooled aluminium block, flat six rear engine, disc brakes, fourwheel independent suspension, fuel injection, the location of all instruments on the steering wheel, and a padded dashboard. Tuckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first design for the car appeared in a 1946 Science Illustrated magazine and he called it the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tucker Torpedoâ&#x20AC;?. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;torpedoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was later dropped after it reminded too many people of the horrors of the recent world war. The car was re named the Tucker â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;48. Many components and features of the car were

innovative and far ahead of their time. The most recognisable feature of the Tucker â&#x20AC;&#x2122;48, a directional third headlight, known as the Cyclops Eye, which would turn on at steering angles of greater than 10 degrees to light the carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s path around corners. A perimeter frame surrounded the vehicle for crash protection, as well as a roll bar integrated into the roof. The steering box was behind the front axle to protect the driver in a front-end accident. The instrument panel and all controls were in easy reach of the steering wheel, and the dash was padded for safety. The windshield was designed to pop-out in a collision to protect occupants. The car also featured seat belts, a safety feature not introduced until the early 1960s in Australia. The carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parking brake had a separate key so it could be locked in place to prevent theft. Tucker envisioned several other innovations which were later abandoned, including magnesium wheels, disc brakes, fuel injection, self-sealing tubeless tires, and a direct-drive torque converter transmission were all evaluated and/or tested but were dropped on the final prototype due to cost, engineering complexity and lack of time to develop. The Tucker was powered by a rear mounted Bell helicopter engine, giving the car a top speed of 190 km/h, very fast for 1948. The rear-wheel-drive car weighed almost two tonnes The company first tried the Lycoming aircraft engine but it would not fit in the carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rear engine compartment. A Franklin air-cooled flat-six engine, the O-335 made by Air Cooled Motors and originally intended for the Bell 47 helicopter, fit into the engine bay and with its 124 kW it pleased Tucker. His engineers converted the 5.5 litre engine to water cooling. Using an aircraft engine in an automobile application required significant modification. This durable modification of the engine was tested at maximum power for 150 hours, the equivalent of 18,000 miles at full throttle. Tucker bought Air Cooled Motors company for $1.8 million to secure his engine source, then cancelled all of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aircraft contracts so that

Third eye: The Tucker features the Cyclops Eye mounted in the middle front which turns on at a steering angle greater than 10 degrees to light the carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s path around corners. the workforce could work exclusively on making automotive engines for the Tucker Corporation. To prove the road-worthiness of his cars, Tucker and his engineers ran several cars at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in several endurance tests. During this testing, car number 1027 was rolled at high speed while driven by mechanic Eddie Offut. The carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety features were proven when Offut walked away from the severe crash. During the crash, the windshield popped out as designed, and afterward the car started up and was driven off the track. Fifty-eight frames and bodies were built at the Chicago factory. From these parts, 36 sedans were finished before the factory was closed. After the factory closed but before liquidation of

his assets, Tucker retained a core of employees who assembled an additional 14 sedans for a total of 50. A 51st car was partially completed. According to Tucker enthusiasts, when the cars appear at auction, which is rare, they command very high prices. Tucker number 1038 sold in August 2008 at an auction in the United States for the record-setting price of $1,017,500. In August 2010 at RMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Monterey auction, Tucker number 1045 sold to a Melbourne businessman for the record-breaking price of $1,127,500. The car arrived in Melbourne last month in time to join more than 80 other classic cars that were driven through Melbourne as part of the Tour Classica prelude to Motorclassica.

SACKED?

HIGHTON Bowls Club is preparing to launch a new synthetic bowling green as part of a $200,000 upgrade project. Managing director Graeme Wright said the “wonderful” green was a “milestone” for the club. “It shows good results are obtained when the efforts of hard-working club members are combined with encouragement and support from both the Geelong council and also State Government,” he said. “Our members are delighted with the new green. I’m pleased to say we now have three outdoor greens, one indoor green, a great clubhouse and over 400 members.” Wright said the club hoped the yearround appeal of the new Tiger Turf green would attract new members to the club.

Super bid for women, teens BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG Supercats has added to its talent contingency with a youth support program and plans for a women’s team. General manager David Hoey said the Supercats wanted to increase its size and offer Geelong basketball talent more opportunities to play at an elite level. Hoey said the new youth initiative, Aspiring Supercats program, aimed to develop basketball talent in Geelong. The Supercats would join forced with Basketball Geelong to target players from under 16 and

ALL NEW

18 age groups. Hoey said Supercats coach Jamie O’Loughlin would run the program to provide participants with training and insight into “the life of a Supercat”. “The program will allow these development players the opportunity to understand and experience the expectations of higher-level basketball including exposure to the team concept, skill development, pre and post-game requirements, drills, strength and conditioning and game play.” Hoey said the Supercats had also lodged an expression of interest with South East Australian

Basketball League to field a women’s team in 2011. “It’s a long-term goal of the club to have a women’s team as part of the overall involvement and certainly, given the recent success of Basketball Geelong’s championship team in 2010, we thought it was timely to put forward a combined approach to the Supercats with men’s and women’s rosters,” he said. Hoey’s feedback from SEABL had left him “very confident”. “They were enormously pleased after all these years that Geelong is moving forward with a women’s team,” he said.

sport Cats confront ‘two-day test’

A Cut above in rough weather

BRIAN LONG ANGLERS prepared to adapt to the weather over the past week enjoyed some outstanding results. One of the standout land-based destinations was Queenscliff Cut where trevally, Tommy rough and mullet were caught along with some fantastic snapper, some pushing 2.5kg. While soft plastics accounted for the majority of fish, anglers bait fishing also landed a few. Nearby, the mouth of Swan Bay produced baglimit captures of squid but the salmon action really excited anglers, with shoals so thick at times that a lure cast nearby would produce a catch. Peter Sterling had a ball casting soft plastics, with best fish weighing 2.5kg. Brenton Hodges and his mates caught fish on many lures in the same area along with a hot session on surface poppers. Todd Wright fished the Coles Channel marker where he nailed a few nice whiting until his rod folded and line began peeling out at a frenetic pace. The culprit was a 7.3kg snapper taken on 3kg line and a number six hook. Todd finished with sixteen whiting from 35cm to 40cm. St Leonards has produced some variety, with squid and whiting on the inshore grass beds and snapper in numbers on the 20m line. Clifton Springs has been consistent for snapper close to the number 15 channel marker as well as Wilson Spit were it dissects the channel. Garry McMillan has been fishing the outer edge of the spoilgrounds off Sands Caravan Park where he has nailed snapper averaging 1kg to 2kg on bait and soft plastics either side of high tide. Paul Farnsworth made the long walk into Point Lillias twice to landing a combined tally of 20 fish, which is not a bad effort from the shore. Romas Liebich fished close to Point Henry where he landed a fantastic snapper of 58cm on light tackle and a four-inch Gulp Lime Tiger minnow. Peter and Frank Richards fished the same area, catching snapper to 52cm and attracting plenty of pesky, small red mullet. Peter Tanner fished North Shore rocks for pike with small Braid Marauder lures. He caught five fish but had quite a few bite offs. Young Carlo Muncey repeated his recent feats of capturing big snapper with a 5.5kg snapper from Point Lonsdale Pier along with a nice silver trevally. Carlo’s dad had to climb down the side of the pier to retrieve the snapper. Carlo won this week’s $350 Shimano soft plastics outfit for the picture of his catch. Offshore, snapper, gummy and seven gill sharks have been in reasonable numbers in 20m to 40m of water. Ross and Leigh Hodge managed a nice 4.5kg

Pier cheer: Carlo Muncey with his prize-winning 5.5kg snapper from Point Lonsdale Pier.

Big mouth: Brenton Hodges with some fat salmon caught near the mouth of Swan Bay. snapper offshore along with a ‘couta eaten on the way up by a seven gill shark. A well-presented bait brought the seven-giller undone, with the resulting 20kg of shark set to last a few meals. On the surf fishing front, Noel Henry reported bagging out on snapper and taking some nice trevally and whiting at Black Rock, while good results also came from Collendina Beach. Snapper were taken from the rocks west of Lorne along with quality whiting. Fresh squid was the best bait. Corey Gallagher demonstrated his ability to catch bream from the Barwon River estuary where, knowing more floodwater would soon discolour the water and close it down, he used shrimp for a catch of seven fish to 43cms. In freshwater, Lake Bullen Merri continued producing both brown and rainbow trout on Powerbait fished on the bottom. Most fish were around 1kg but some pushed 2.5kg. Lake Purrumbete was best on the troll, with Tassie Devils and Atomic Shads in the 40mm size working a treat during the middle of the day has seen the most activity. The lake also produced redfin on both bobbers and ice jigs. Terry North returned from a few days fishing Lake Fyans where brown trout to 1.8kg were caught along with redfin, his best at 2.3kg. Terry caught all his fish on trolled SX 40s and Atomic Shads. Send reports, photos and picture entries for the weekly $350 Shimano soft plastics outfit and to go into the draw for a Christmas $2000 prize pack of Shimano products to Brian at Ray Long’s Fishing World, 105 Shannon Avenue, Manifold Heights.

AFTER yet another weekend of cricket ruined by inclement weather, cricketers around the region will be hoping for bright sunshine and dry conditions tomorrow so they can replace the form guide and a deck of cards with a cricket bat and a ball. Geelong in particular will hope its good form didn’t wash away when the Cats host Melbourne University in the first two-day fixture of the summer. Damian Shanahan will be wellaware that form can come and go in an instant, so he’ll be making sure batsmen such as Matthew Harrison, Tom Elliott and Laim Buchanan are sharp and ready to perform in this important match. Equally, the bowling line-up, led by Marc Carson and the everimproving Justin Foss, will need to waste no time in finding the line, length and patience required in the longer form of the game. In Geelong Cricket Association’s top division some important matches take place at the top the table but followers of Newtown & Chilwell and Manifold Heights will be looking forward to tomorrow’s clash with an even greater deal of interest. Both clubs have struggled in recent years, with Manifold Heights spending a fair amount of

Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE time in division two over the past decade and the once mighty Newton and Chilwell going through what is most likely the worst on-field era in the club’s proud history. These factors will ensure that players on both sides will approach this match with the intensity of a final as they look to enjoy a morale-boosting victory. For the Sharks, Adrian McCormack and Craig Booley need to lead from the front, while for the Two Blues Ben Neville surely holds the key with his batting after racking up a magnificent 146 in the first week of last round’s match. If Neville fires, Newton & Chilwell will win. Selections: Leopold v NORTH GEELONG, Manifold Heights v NEWTOWN & CHILWELL, South Barwon v LARA, EAST BELMONT v St Josephs, GROVEDALE v Bell Post Hill, Thomson v GEELONG WEST. In division two round four looks like being one for the ages, with a

host of matches that could go either way, including the Murgheboluc and St Albans Breakwater game. Both teams boast experienced bowling line-ups, with Ben Nicholls leading the way for the Frogs, while, for the Saints, Jason Murray and Justin Miller can be relied upon to perform. It stands to reason that the side whose batsmen stand up and get the job done will win. Selections: GEELONG CITY v Marshall, ALEXANDER THOMSON v Highton, North Shore v GUILD ST MARY’S, Torquay v ST PETERS, Murgheboluc v ST ALBANS BREAKWATER, WAURN PONDS v Newcomb & District. As division three heads into round four the Meredith and Corio game in an unlikely topof-the-table clash, with both teams on one win, one draw and one bye. Despite the close ladder positions, Meredith will go in favourites with Ty Watts at the helm of their new look team. Selections: Bell Park v INVERLEIGH, MEREDITH v Corio, BANNOCKBURN v Lethbridge, TEESDALE v Winchelsea, Corio Bay v MODEWARRE, Little River Bye.
