Foreshore walking toward new plan for future after input BY KIM WATERS PORTARLINGTON and St Leonards residents want their foreshore manager to carry out “broader” works and engage with them “more effectively”, according to its new boss. Bellarine Bayside Foreshore Committee of Management chief Cathy Whelan said the organisation heard the messages in a “listening posts” program to gauge community feedback. The committee launched the listening posts after residents gathered a petition with 1600 signatures last year calling on State Government to sack the committee’s previous board. Residents had accused Bellarine Bayside of failing to maintain the foreshore, locking residents out of committee meetings and financial mismanagement. Ms Whelan said the new board, appointed late last year, would use residents’ input in a community consultation program to develop a new management plan for the foreshore. “The main message as far as I’m concerned was about building on the good work in our caravan parks to embrace a broader foreshore planning and management role. “Local communities want us to do better in relation to the broader foreshore and to engage more effectively with them and the authorities such as City of Greater Geelong and Department of Sustainability and Environment. Ms Whelan said Bellarine Bayside would launch the project at a twilight community walk this Friday night. “While taking in the stunning natural beauty along the trail participants will be entertained along the way by an array of creative arts, performances and displays.”

Disaster ‘hit on hall plan’ BY KIM WATERS NATURAL disasters in Queensland could blow away plans to restore St Leonards’ public hall, according to fundraisers. Steve Walsh said cyclone Yasi and Queensland’s floods disaster threatened to soak up council and state funding for small Victorian projects such as the hall restoration. “It’s hard to say how long it will take for us to raise the money we need,” Mr Walsh said. “It depends on the support we get from local and state government but with the recent natural disasters a lot of the minor funding support for projects like this is in question.” Mr Walsh said St Leonards Progress Association was about $97,000 short of the money it needed to start the restoration. “The fundraising committee is working pretty hard. If we could get some funding then we could start seeking grants but that’s also subject to how much state and federal governments have after the floods and the cyclone.” Mr Walsh described the hall restoration as caught in “a Catch 22” dilemma. “We need to get the hall at least partly restored to have a place for more fundraising but it’s difficult to raise the money with the facility like it is, so under-utilised. “We have to be patient and take a positive approach that if we have to do all the fundraising ourselves then that’s what we have to do.”

Roos ‘wreak havoc’ continued “rapidly multiplying”. He said the club was no closer to fixing the problem after a year-long battle with the Defence Department whose base on the island was responsible for the animals. The damage was now costing the club thousands of dollars each month, Mr Warren said. Club officials had organised a volunteer working group this week

Red Weddings

to fill in hundreds of holes because grounds staff could no longer cope with the amount of repairs. “It’s a never-ending battle,” Mr Warren said. “Some of the greens have over 100 holes and then the next day there are more. We get complaints from people saying ‘It’s a magnificent course but shame about the kangaroo holes’.”

April that the Defence Department had “no current plans” to adopt the club’s proposal for a kangaroo cull. Club officials said they were “shocked and surprised” when the department also denied introducing kangaroos to Swan Island. The club said the department had accepted responsibility for the animals in an official environmental management document.

Mr Warren said finding a solution was “a slow process”. “We talk to them (the Defence Department) monthly and three months ago they said they would organise an environmental assessment and then work on an action but that hasn’t happened.” The Defence Department did not respond to the Independent’s call for comment.

Mr Warren said the club was spreading fertiliser on the grounds every two weeks to deter the “pesky” roos but the expense threatened to cripple the club’s finances. “It’s a very costly exercise. It’s about $450 every two weeks. “But we don’t have much of a choice – we need to do whatever we can to help keep our members.” The Independent reported in

A TORQUAY surfer is among finalists for one of Australia’s most coveted surfing awards. Jeff Rowley will fly to Sydney next week to find out whether he wins the main prize in the Surfing Life Big Wave Awards. Mr Rowley is in line for the Biggest Wave title with some of Australia’s leading exponents of riding surf so large it requires tow-in assistance from jet skis. The 31-year-old is also a finalist in a second category, Biggest Paddle-in Award, for surfers who catch their giant waves with the traditional method. Mr Rowley caught his biggest ride last Autumn on a deepwater reef “somewhere close to home�. He recalled catching the wave during a “rare Victorian day of sunshine and light winds�. “Normally at home it’s howl-

‘No lights, no )HHO*UHDW T20’, says CA IURPWKH )HHW8S BY ANDREW MATHIESON A LACK of floodlights has cost Geelong its bid for one of two Victorian Big Bash Twenty20 cricket franchises, according to officials. The sport’s national board favoured basing a second Melbourne team at Docklands over Geelong’s Skilled Stadium during a meeting this week. But Cricket Australia still praised Geelong’s “outstanding� submission, saying the strength of the city’s bid had encouraged officials to consider further expansion of the new Big Bash League. Cricket Australia marketing general manager Mike McKenna said “tremendous growth and potential� in Melbourne’s growing western suburbs also hurt Geelong’s bid.

A push for lights by 2013 among Skilled Stadium operators and tenants including Geelong Football Club as part of a ground redevelopment was too late, Mr McKenna said. “It made a hard decision a little bit clearer when you looked at some of the facilities provided in those two venues (the MCG and Etihad Stadium) and I guess the critical issue was there are no lights yet at Skilled Stadium.� Former Cats president Frank Costa had told the Independent that light towers were an impromptu part of Geelong’s Twenty20 bid. Geelong bid chair Michael King said supporters had done everything possible to bring Twenty20 cricket to the city. A revamped 20-over a side for-

mat for the competition next season included two teams each for Melbourne and Sydney and one for other first-class venues. “We are very disappointed that we have been unsuccessful in our bid to host a T20 team in Geelong,� King said. “Well done to the successful bidder. Our region will continue to focus on ensuring our involvement in future T20.� The state association backed the Geelong bid for a second Victorian team, but Cricket Australia dashed local hopes. “To have been selected (on Tuesday) would have been extraordinary for the region as it would have had a significant impact not only for Geelong’s economy, but for sports development in the region,� Mr King said.

Teenager ‘unknown’ to alleged city rapist BY KIM WATERS A MAN charged with raping a teenager in central Geelong on the weekend will remain free on bail for more than three months. Police allege the man, 46, attacked the girl in Malop Street at 4.30am Saturday. The 18-year-old victim was unknown to the man, police said. Geelong Magistrates Courts’ on-line listing of cases named the Geelong West man as Asad Ali.

Police charged him with rape and indecent assault on Tuesday. Mr Ali appeared on Wednesday in Geelong Magistrates Court where his case was adjourned until May 18. Mr Ali sat calmly in court, wearing a shirt and jeans. He left with his lawyer after the magistrate announced the adjournment. Victoria Police spokesperson Kelly Cromb urged any witnesses to come forward.

“In Malop Street at that time on a Saturday morning there might have been a few people around,” Ms Cromb said. “There may be someone out there who could assist us, so we’d encourage them to call myself or Crime Stoppers on 5225 3206 or 1800 333 000.” The alleged Malop Street assault was one of two cases involving sex attack charges in Geelong Magistrates Court this week. The court also heard that police had

Watch heist TWO THIEVES have stolen about $10,000 worth of designer watches from a surf shop in Westfield Geelong, according to police. A police spokesperson said one of the men distracted a staff member while the other forced open a cabinet to steal the watches.

charged 29-year-old Stephen van Beveren over an alleged indecent assault at Newcomb. Police alleged Mr van Beveren assaulted a 21-year-old woman on Tuesday. Police said officers arrested Mr van Beveren after they responded to a call for help at a house in Boundary Road about 8.30am. A magistrate remanded Mr van Beveren in custody. He will reappear in Geelong Magistrates Court next week.

A FORMER Corio man has died in a collision between his motorbike and a car on the Great Ocean Road. Police said Kyle McKiernan, of Melton, collided with a sedan near Wye River on Sunday afternoon.

Lara deferral GEELONG councillors have deferred their vote on controversial subivision plans for land next to a nature sanctuary at Lara. Ward councillor Cameron Granger said the deferral would allow City Hall officers to do a “bit more work” on how the proposed 380-allotment estate would affect public infrastructure in the town.

Port hopes TRANSFERRING car exports and imports to Geelong’s port could create 1000 jobs in the city, according to State Government. The Government announced it would run a feasibility study into shifting the work from Melbourne.

City must embrace future with icon, says professor BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG must embrace its future with an iconic landmark to guarantee the city’s prosperity, according to a world-class architecture professor. Deakin University School of Architecture and Building head Professor Hisham Elkadi said Geelong needed an inspirational tourist attraction with an international profile. Prof Elkadi has signed on to the city’s Icon for Geelong competition to create a design brief for entrants. The professor, who has worked on international icons including England’s Angel of the North, said Geelong needed its own landmark.

“If you close your eyes and I say Florence, Paris, Rome, London you always get an image but if I say Geelong you get confused a little bit,” he said. “We don’t have a visible bite in Geelong and that’s very important for tourism and industry. “An icon isn’t just a piece of art, it’s a piece of art that represents a vision for the city.” Prof Elkadi said he had seen other iconic structures resurrect cities. “The idea for an icon came from the debate about Geelong’s CBD and what we need to do; how to boost people’s confidence in their own city,” he said.

“I’ve seen it before living in Newcastle (in England) when the city was down after Margaret Thatcher took away its industry. There was the illusion Newcastle couldn’t be a big city again. “By putting the Angel of the North at the city’s entrance it symbolised the way people visualised their future. That’s what Geelong needs.” Prof Elkadi said competition critics had told him Geelong should focus on basic infrastructure problems such as parking rather than “more artworks”. But he believed cities like Geelong that relied on sport teams for prosperity risked ruin. “Sports go up and down. No town

can rely on sport for its main dollar revenue,” he said. “Portsmouth’s football team in the UK was downgraded and the whole city went bankrupt. The population in Geelong gets very attached to sport but as it goes up and down so does the economy.” Prof Elkadi said his competition brief would go “all around the world”. A panel of community representatives will select the winner of the sixmonth icon competition. Organisers have so far gathered pledges totalling $10,000 for the winner. The Independent is a supporter of the Icon for Geelong competition.

when we first set up the technology back in 2007 but so far we’ve been very happy.” Ms Lemura said a minority of patrons was “uneasy” about the technology storing their information but most had accepted the process. Other nightlife operators also praised the scanners, which cost about $7000 each. Home House and Eureka manager Mario Gregorio credit-

ed them with a change in “behaviour” in central Geelong’s nightclub precinct. “The scanners have made people safer inside the venues,” he said. “Security knows who the known troublemakers are but once your ID details are scanned and an indiscretion is caused inside the venue then a ban will occur, which has a major impact on people’s social lives.”

Amy’s classic rock chic in new show GEELONG actress Amy Lephamer has returned to her hometown as she prepares for her starring role in Broadway musical Rock of Ages. The musical, billed as

“Broadway’s hottest love story”, has provided Amy with her big break. She plays the lead role of Sherrie, a small-town girl who moves to the big city in search of fame and fortune.

Amy stars alongside End of Fashion singer Justin Burford, who plays the male lead role of Drew. Rock of Ages opens in Melbourne on April 9.

Call for $60m tourism spend BY ANDREW MATHIESON TOURISM lobbyists are seeking $30 million from State Government to build a Geelong Convention Centre within the next four years. Victorian Tourism Industry Council has asked for the convention centre cash in a $60 million wishlist of public infrastructure funding for the region, including an interpretive centre on the Great Ocean Road. The submission has gone to Victorian Competition and Efficiency Commission, which makes recommendations to State Government on funding priorities. The convention and interpretive centres are two of the coun-

cil’s five statewide priorities along with extension of Melbourne Exhibition Centre and development of Jolimont Station and Yarra River transport infrastructure. Government support is integral to the commission’s review of the state’s tourism industry and a campaign to reduce the amount of red tape facing its Victorian businesses. Victorian Tourism Industry Council chairman Jeremy Johnson said spending money on the projects would help the region keep pace with growing visitor numbers to regional Victoria. “Improvements in regional tourism infrastructure will help with regional dispersal of visitors

as well securing international airport status for Avalon Airport,” Mr Johnson said. The council said a $30 million State Government investment would help Geelong develop a convention centre worth $80 milion to $100 million. Council chief Todd Blake said the new Baillieu Government had given fresh hope for the convention centre project. “We have a plan for the project and we see an opportunity in the life of the current government for some progress on the development of it,” he said. Various tourism and business bodies were continuing to discuss the best location, he said.

The draft 2010 Structure Plan updates population and lot supply data, policy and strategy information, retail, community and recreation needs and growth opportunities.

A draft Leopold Sub-Regional Activity Centre Framework Plan incorporating an Urban Design Framework and Recreation Reserve Master Plan has now been prepared for Council. The plans were developed with input from key stakeholders and user groups and include: 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. 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. RECREATION – MASTER PLAN Two draft concepts of how the Memorial Park recreation reserve could be enhanced to better meet the needs of existing user groups and projected future demands have been developed. 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

ACCESS ADVICE • Local access to Cunningham Pier and the Western Beach Boat Club will be managed via a traffic controller at Cunningham Street between events, however, small delays areexpected. • Local access for residents or businesses on Eastern Beach Road, Western Beach Road, The Esplanade and Bell Parade will be available between events, however, please note these are approximate times based on the scheduled finish time of events and therefore some delays may be experienced. The approximate times are between 12.30pm and 12.45pm, between 2.15pm and 2.30pm.

What is a tow away zone? To ensure the safety of the competitors and the public for the duration of the Geelong Multi Sport Festival, a number of temporary road closures, including some tow away zones, will be implemented within the event precinct. A tow away zone is a designated area approved by the Minister for Roads and Ports where vehicles, including those belonging to residents and businesses within the designated area, are not permitted to occupy the road way for a nominated time. Please be advised that on Friday 18 February, Saturday 19 February and Sunday 20 February 2011, some of the course roads will be designated tow away zones and have NO STANDING AREAS implemented. A Local Laws Officer will monitor and issue fines for breaches of this Ministerial ruling. Any vehicle parked within the tow away zone will be towed off the course at the cost of the owner. The reason that some tow away zones and no standing areas need to be implemented is to ensure the safety of the public and participants during the conduct of the events. Please note that the roads will be opened as soon as it is deemed safe to do so, at which point all normal parking conditions will be reinstated. Specific details regarding the designated tow away zones and no standing areas are detailed in the table provided. Please take note of the tow away zones and no standing areas that may apply to you. PARKING ADVICE Motorists are advised to park within the appropriately marked parking areas and abide by the changed traffic conditions. Infringement notices may be issued to motorists who breach the law by parking in no stopping areas, too close to intersections, causing obstructions to driveways, using disabled parking bays without a permit and causing potential damage to Council assets by parking on reserves, nature strips or footpaths. DETOUR ADVICE Please refer to the maps which show the road closures and changed parking conditions. Detours will be in place during the road closure periods – please follow the directions of the traffic controllers and traffic signage. Detours will be in place for the closure of the Geelong - Portarlington Road from Garden Street to Hermsley Road/ Curlewis Road, Curlewis. It is recommended that motorists use the detour route along Ormond Road, Bellarine Highway (Queenscliff Highway) and then Grubb Road (or vice versa).

Bike theft robs rider of holiday BY ERIN PEARSON CRUEL thieves have robbed a disabled man of his dream holiday, according to his distraught mother. Newtown’s Jan Korolew said the thieves used the family’s garage sale to case out their property before returning to steal her son’s motorbike. Ms Korolew said her son had planning to sell the bike for an overseas holiday. “It’s very upsetting. Michael has a mental disability and was looking forward to selling the bike because he hasn’t used it much. “He was looking to go on a holiday to New Zealand and for him that was a big deal.” Ms Korolew said Michael had barely ridden the yellow and black PitPro 125R. She wanted the theft to be a warning to other families planning their own

garage sales. “The bike had been on display all day then my husband woke the next morning to discover it was stolen. “You get so disappointed when people do crummy things like this. “Michael’s pretty complacent but as a parent you have to be protective, your caring role extends into their adulthood. “You just can’t believe the dishonesty of people, it’s so disheartening.” Michael said he hoped the thieves would return his bike with an apology. “It made me upset and angry and I was pretty shocked because I didn’t think they’d do that. “I hope the police find it and return it because it’s a pretty low act. Without it I won’t be able to go on a holiday and I can’t remember the last one I went on.” Geelong police confirmed officers were investigating the alleged theft.

Boo: Michael Ward is angry about the loss of his show venue after eight years. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 60001

BY ERIN PEARSON DEAKIN University has squeezed some of Australia’s top musicians out of Geelong’s waterfront, according to an events company director. Acorn Productions’ Michael Ward said Deakin had refused to let him continue booking its Waterfront Cafe six to 12 months ahead, which was the only way he could arrange top performers. Mr Ward, who has run the waterfront concerts for eight years, expected the venue loss to put him out of business. “People really gravitate toward the water and, being a publicly-funded place, you’d think Deakin would open the booking space up,” he said. “Instead I’ve been told I can’t book events more than six months in advance because the timetable must be open for academic purposes but we only run shows on Sunday afternoons. It makes no sense. Mr Ward has brought numerous veteran Australian rock stars and bands to the café, including Brian Cadd, Daryl Braithwaite, Mark Seymour and

James Reyne, who is also booked to play the final show in May. Deakin external relations director Lynne Lucas said the university had to cater for increased student activities. “Due to timetabling procedures, we’re not always able to provide confirmation of bookings more than six months in advance,” Ms Lucas said. “We understand this shortened lead time for confirmed bookings may have been problematic for Acorn Productions in its negotiations with artists and scheduling preferences. We do our best to accommodate all requests for the use of our facilities, however we do have to balance community use with the university’s teaching timetable.” Geelong councillor Jan Farrell hoped council could help find a new venue for Mr Ward’s shows. “He runs a great program and it would be a shame to lose it from Geelong,” she said. “We’re using our networks and contacts to see whether we can find Michael an alternative venue.”

My enlightenment ANDREW MATHIESON PREACHING with a voice of an angel, 19-year-old Catholic Genevieve Exton sounds out a compelling case for sainthood. The Mary MacKillop disciple has been moving heaven and earth to spread the gospel of Australia’s most revered nun to the masses. Ready at the beck and call of the church, Genevieve’s work is proving no less holy. Just like her namesake, 5th Century Parisian Saint Genevieve, she has devoted her life to charity, the underprivileged and, most importantly, God. But for the modest St Mary’s parishioner that’s where the similarities end. “I think my parents just liked the name Genevieve, to be honest,” she giggles. “For nearly every name possible, there is a saint. “But I’ve read a bit about Saint Genevieve and the work she did is quite inspiring.” This modern-day Genevieve’s everlasting faith has grown since Geelong Catholic Deanery last year sent her to Rome to witness Mary MacKillop’s historic canonisation. Taking notes of religious landmarks, sacred sites and churches that inspired Mary’s quest to establish the Sisters of St Joseph in Penola, Geelong’s ambassador created her own

The blog was so popular among thousands of followers that Genevieve plans to deliver the message in classrooms when she starts teaching at Catholic schools. “I can imagine students being so excited when I show them

my photos,” Genevieve smiles. “Hopefully my blog will still be on the internet, although the photos might look a bit old fashioned by then. “But that will still be special for them because their teacher was there and they’ll be able to feel a connection.” Before then Genevieve will preach to the converted at St

Genevieve followed in Mary’s footsteps from Termini Station after the nun had spent six weeks at sea in 1873 to Anglo-Americano Hotel where staff were left bemused over her luggage of one small box then, finally, to Santa Sacramenta Chapel where the visiting nun prayed each night. “The whole time I felt the spirit of Mary MacKillop really strongly,” Genevieve says. “I mean, even sitting at breakfast I’d be talking to other people on my table and a lot of them were struggling to have children but they always prayed to Mary and then later they had children. “There was this great sense of unity and friendship between everyone and it felt like Mary MacKillop was really there.” Before Mary was a saint, Genevieve first saw the light at a 2008 World Youth Day in Sydney. For many years she was content to just attend Sunday mass and listen to the same sermons but it was the joyous celebrations that changed her outlook. Genevieve committed giving to the poor and joined a young St Vincent de Paul’s outreach to make a real difference. “I looked around me and there were hundreds of thousands of other young people at the World Youth Day who were so vibrant and happy to be there,” she recalls. “I guess I thought they had this faith about them, they had this wonderful confidence and I thought I needed to look further into this.”

1200 square metres of fun shopping now in Geelong.

SEXYLAND is finally bringing the largest ever range of “fun” products to Geelong. In excess of 3000 different lines from all over the world are spread over 1200 square metres in the new Sexyland store. Marketing manager Rebecca Grech says Sexyland is just like a modern-day department store for adults. “The breadth and range of products has never before been seen on such a scale in Australia,” Rebecca says. Sexyland opened the new store believing Geelong customers travelling to the company’s previously nearest outlet, at Hoppers Crossing, deserved a location closer to home. After servicing the Melbourne metropolitan area for over 11 years, Sexyland has given the Geelong region its very own “couples-focused adult store” with a complete range of products for all demographics over the age of 18. The huge range includes footwear, lingerie, genuine Venetian masks, romance products such as

massage oils, candles and chocolates as well as lots of “fun” toys. Sexyland’s interior features atmospheric downlighting, elegantly presented retail spaces and friendly, uniformed staff who warmly welcome customers. “We try to offer both men and women a shopping experience where they feel safe and comfortable,” Rebecca says “We predominantly have female staff and any questions can be answered without embarrassment by our fun specialists. “Our mission statement is to offer your ultimate fun shopping experience.” The new Geelong store will host a “huge” grand opening this Saturday, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Radio personalities will host a barbecue while conducting giveaways of products including satellite navigation systems, iPods and X-Boxes. Sexyland’s new store is at 4 Corio Quay Road, North Geelong.

CHANGING the previous Labor Government’s proposed Geelong ring road 4C alignment is an important regional issue, so a story in last week’s Independent requires clarification. In January Planning Minister Mathew Guy attended a meeting with more than 40 residents in Grovedale where he announced that an advisory committee would review the 4C alignment and ensure community input. While in opposition he and other members were highly critical of the Labor Government’s decision to impose the alignment on the back door of Grovedale, Waurn Ponds and Marshall, and of a failure to properly consult the community. The traffic and noise pollution of locating 4C in this residential area would have been substantial. Moreover, it would not have eased traffic congestion on existing roads north of the proposed alignment, such as Rossack Drive and Heyers Road. The new Government and minister have welcomed our involvement in the review and requested South Grovedale Action Group make a submission. Unlike the previous Government, they have emphasised this local issue needs the input of people on whom it is likely to impact. We recommend that residents of Grovedale,

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.

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.

Only experts know IN ANSWER to Alan Barron’s letter last week, it is precisely now, while our minds are on the record climate disasters occurring in this country, that we need to focus our efforts on becoming world leaders in climate change mitigation rather than followers. It appears from Mr Barron’s weak arguments that he does not have a science background. He does, however, have a political bent, as was apparent when he ran for the DLP at the last state election. I am not a bricklayer or a brain surgeon, so I would not presume to make comments on either of those fields. The same applies to climate science, Mr Barron. As I have previously stated, fire, drought, flood and cyclone events recently in Australia have all been record events and exaggerations of the natural cycles, in part caused by human-produced gases. Across the world in the past decade climate-extreme events are at record intensities and frequencies. Just ask an insurance company if you don’t believe it. So I ask Mr Barron whether he wants us addicted to fossil fuels forever and does he want us to lose out economically to those nations forging ahead with alternative energy? Leigh Adamson Belmont

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. 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.

I CONGRATULATED Gary Oraniuk (Letters, February 4) for saying what I have experienced a number of times concerning council toilets, in particular the facility behind the old Geelong West Town Hall. I have phoned council twice complaining about irregular cleaning. Admittedly, the toilets are only fit for Third World conditions but there is no excuse for smelly, dirty toilets and floors. Surely the walls and floors can be cleaned with a gurney as a minimum standard. Norma Pekin Herne Hill

ALLAN Barron started his letter in last week’s Independent with a lovely example of an ad hominem logical fallacy: if no good argument is to be made, go at the man by labelling those with whom you disagree as, on this occasion, ignorant. Mr Barron did, however, get close to being factual by reminding us that carbon dioxide (CO2) doesn’t cause floods and that the recent weather has been brought about, in part, by a La Niña event. But that’s only really where the argument begins. La Niña does bring unseasonal rain to the east coast of Australia and it is this rain that causes floods. However, the reason this and last year have been so bad is not as a result of La Niña alone. Another very large driver of wet weather in Australia in summer is warm sea surface temperatures. The winds that come with La Niña push these warm waters close to shore, resulting in higher rainfall through faster evaporation into the atmosphere. Current record warm ocean temperatures, leading to even-greater rain events, are most likely a result of climate change, caused in large part by increased CO2 in the atmosphere. These warm temperatures also cause tropical storms that can become cyclones. The warmer the ocean, the more and heavier the rain and the more and larger the cyclones. The theory of anthropogenic CO2 emissions being the cause has by far the best evidence and, by a huge margin, more climate scientists supporting it. Glenn Brady Leopold

If you’re a working parent expecting a child, there’s something else you can expect

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.

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.

Waurn Ponds and Marshall acquaint themselves with the alternative alignment options to relocate 4C further south, summarised in a report available at www.southgrovedale.info. It is in residents’ interests to make submissions calling for the road to be located further south away from established residential communities. We have also asked the minister to direct that the advisory committee conduct hearings in Geelong and that all submissions be available online. Margarita Kumnick Grovedale

CLIMATE change activists have taken Federal Government to task for slashing green programs to free up cash for the flood recovery effort. The climate institute and the Australian Greens have warned the new one-off flood levy will simply be the first of many to come if the Government continues to put climate change on the backburner. Prime Minister Julia Gillard has announced a $5.6 billion flood recovery package comprising the levy and $3.8 billion worth of funding cuts and deferrals. Green schemes, housing programs and funding for regional Australia all got the chop, putting advocates offside, while infrastructure projects around the country have been put on hold. The climate institute’s John Connor said cutting carbon abatement schemes while maintaining subsidies for polluting activities was a “curious” way for the government to prove its climate change commitment.

Grand Avalon dream A PURPOSE-BUILT F1 grand prix circuit at Avalon coinciding with a changing of the guard between wellintentioned Ron Walker and Lindsay Fox represents the region’s only viable big-ticket motorsport option. Melbourne Mayor Robert Doyle is entitled to question why taxpayers should continue to subsidise the GP to the tune of $50 million to $70 million. Apart from the promoters’ cut and some Southbank hospitality, accommodation and casino upside or downside, depending on your opinion, much of the GP’s costs are created by using a one-off, temporary venue. Avalon could be used for a myriad of motorsport and motorbike features. That’s not to say we should ignore McAdam Park’s continuing international under-utilisation. Why are City of Greater Geelong and Surf Coast Shire not seizing the blatantly obvious? Again the focus returns to the under-utilised and abysmally promoted Avalon precinct. Not only did the Rudd Government bow to lobbyists by failing to grant Avalon A-grade international carrier status but the City and Brumby Government dudded the employment-friendly DFO proposal. Perhaps a profitable purpose-built facility for revheads could provide the tipping point for moremature, representative decision-making and long-

ing five registers then set up the customer to be charged a single rate, saying that having a five-register meter means nothing. I have had two accurate electricity bills in two years. Six were wrong, one was charged at the single rate and one by estimate. My smart meter was installed in July but the only bill I received despite three readings was an estimate. Others are also having problems getting bills. I asked a solar system installer whether any of his customers were having bill problems. He said: “Yes, me”. Michael Perks Grovedale

HEAVY rain last week has forced authorities to close some of the region’s favourite outdoor areas, according to Parks Victoria. A spokesperson said Parks Victoria closed Lara’s You Rangs Regional Park for a week but hoped to reopen some sections this weekend. Numerous areas in Brisbane Ranges National Park, north of Geelong, were also offlimits until further notice, the spokesperson said. Parks Victoria “strongly” urged people to stay away from the closed areas due to safety concerns.

In tune for waterfront BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG’S waterfront will provide a stunning backdrop to a free concert featuring 65 of the state’s finest musicians this weekend. Organisers said the Orchestra Victoria concert would be a rare opportunity to experience live orchestral music in an open-air venue. The event would also feature a jambpacked pre-show program including “fine home-grown performers”, the organisers said. “A massive stage, a top-of-the-range sound system and a giant video screen will be installed at Eastern Beach for this free all-ages concert.” The organisers said the event aimed to bring live orchestral music to thousands of people who usually had little experience of full-scale concert hall performances. The program would include “great composers and orchestral favourites” including Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet overture, Princess Leia’s theme from Star Wars, Bizet and Gershwin and Bernstein’s West Side Story. “Taking centre stage with the orchestra will be conductor Ben Northey, who’s known for his appearances on Spicks and Specks, and tenor Roy Best, winner of Operatunity Oz,” the organisers said.

The pre-show line-up of local performers and “roving acts” included young soprano Lee Abrahmsen, jazz performer Shandelle Cooke, Geelong band Hip Cats and indy/pop/folk group The Evening Cast. The organiser said local musician and film maker Stephen Oakes would create a “soundscape and visual projection piece” for the pre-show entertainment, while visual artist Michelle Fifer would install lantern sculptures to light the area. The roving entertainment would be courtesy of Geelong’s Courthouse Arts. Geelong Mayor John Mitchell said City Hall was thrilled to host Orchestra Victoria. “It is a rare opportunity to be able to see such high-calibre musicians and performers for free,” he said. “Our spectacular waterfront will be the perfect backdrop to the beautiful music of Orchestra Victoria. The night will also showcase some of our talented local musicians and artists. “It’s going to be a great summer night in Geelong and I encourage everyone to bring a picnic rug down and enjoy this unique community event.” The organisers said the pre-show entertainment would begin 6.30pm Saturday, with Orchestra Victoria’s concert starting 8.30pm.

QUEENSLAND trio The Lamplights will brighten up Geelong’s Pakington Street this month when they roll into town for the city’s 29th annual Pako Festa. Promoters described The Lamplights as playing an eclectic mix of music with a “laid back, innovative and folky sound”. “With a wide repertoire, the trio’s sound is best described as an organic blend of funk and folk served with a side of blues, sprinkled liberally with jazz and dished up with a whole lot of heart.” Ryan Gittoes features on vocals alongside reigning Australian Fingerstyle Guitar Champion Ashley Perrow. The group will perform on the festa’s Barking Dog stage at 4pm on February 26. The trio will later close the festival on a Westpac Diversity stage at 7.15pm. Pako Festa, Australia’s largest free celebration of cultural diversity, has been luring increasingly large crowds to Pakington Street since 1983. Last year about 100,000 patrons attended the one-day event.

Finally Friday New festival to ‘shock’ with arts AN INAUGURAL Alleyway Arts Festival will bring music and exhibitions to central Geelong next week. Organisers said the councilfunded festival aimed to “expose the city’s arts culture”. “Our aim is to show Geelong its gifted arts culture, to give this town a little shock of arts excitement through live music and artist exhibition.”

The not-for-profit, free event would feature bands including Hot Club Swing, Lash78, Sleep Decade, Sambrose Automobile and Highwater Ballroom Band. Galleries Kubu and Oxide would provide art exhibitions, the organisers said. Gypsy jazz band Hot Club Swing has been playing around the region for 12 years, playing a blend of original and cover

songs. Featuring vocals in French and English, violin, gypsy-style guitars and double bass, the group brands itself a “unique all-string band”. Lash78 sisters, Lauren and Sheridan Harvey perform acoustic songs with an emphasis on harmonies and country stylings. Alleyway Arts Festival will be in Little Malop Street from midday to 9pm on February 19.

BY ERIN PEARSON MUSIC is a life sentence of love for legendary Australian vocalist, songwriter and saxophonist Joe Camilleri. Camilleri said he was “tying up loose ends” on a new 30-track double album in the lead up to his show with The Black Sorrows in Geelong next month. Camilleri described making music as a labour of love. “I think I’ve been pretty lucky but it’s still hard work,” he told the Independent. “My songs are all like my babies. No one knows how long they’ll be in the music industry but for me it’s a life sentence. “If I didn’t do it then I would

die on the vine.” Camelleri said The Black Sorrows band had been through highs and lows over its 28-year history. “The public let you know if you’re doing the wrong thing because they won’t come,” he laughed. “They say ‘We love you but we’re not coming, you’ve gone weird’. “Some of that exists sometimes because a hit record can work against you.” Camelleri said fans could expect some “oldies and newbie” hits in the band’s Geelong show. “I love playing Hold On To Me, Chained To The Wheel and even songs I’m famous for that I didn’t

write, like Brown Eyed Girl. “I want to have fun with people and make them feel like the fat lady did sing – I’m guilty of that.” The Australian music legend also promised more albums to come. “I’m nearly 63 but I really feel like I haven’t done the thing I’m meant to do, although I do hope it’s not gardening,” he chuckled. . “I want to do what Elvis was doing because there’s nothing nicer for a writer than people singing your lyrics back at you. It shows you’ve hit a chord and you wish you could do that every time.” Joe Camilleri and The Black Sorrows will be at Deakin Waterfront Cafe on March 6.

andoori Flames is reinventing Indian cuisine. Director Jimmy Marwaha says his Geelong and Melbourne restaurants aim to provide diners with high quality, traditional Indian cuisine seven days a week. “We use the finest quality ingredients in all of our dishes which will make you want to return again and again. “We assure customers they’ll enjoy our food right up until the last bite.” Tandoori Flames has been open for four weeks. Chefs work under the supervision of coowner and head chef Rustam Baig who has travelled the world, living in Dubai and India, to bring his cooking repertoire to Geelong. Jimmy says the chef’s butter chicken and lamb rogan josh dishes have been selling fast. “The feedback we’ve received over the past few weeks has been great. “Customers love our traditional recipes and combination specials including our tandoori mixed grill with five different meats to share between friends.” The restaurant serves up vegetarian, gluten-free and halal dishes as well as chicken, lamb, beef and seafood choices. As another reason to visit Tandoori Flames, until the end of February customers will receive 25 per cent off their bills. A lunch special is also available, with the restaurant charging only $7.90 for a curry, rice and naan bread. Free home delivery is available in a fivekilometre radius with orders totalling more than $30. Tandoori Flames is open 11am to 10pm Monday to Saturday and 5pm to 10pm Sundays at shop 1/76 Yarra Street, Geelong, phone 5298 2147.

The path to self-managed super BY GREG CRAWFORD, M.A.P FINANCIAL SOLUTIONS IN THE last decade there has been a considerable increase people starting their own self-managed super funds (SMSF). It certainly has its place but it may not be right for everyone. The main reason to want to go down this path is to be able to exercise greater control over

investments in this tax-advantaged form. With changes in legislation in recent years, people wanting to invest in property are finding it easier to do this through a SMSF than it used to be. The dollar size of the fund and the type of investments will determine whether fees are higher or lower than traditional super funds. If there are complex transactions involving extra work for account-

ants and lawyers then expect to pay more. Be aware of the legal responsibilities of being an SMSF trustee. Available administration services can help. M.A.P Financial Solutions offers an initial no- obligation meeting to discuss the benefits and whether it is right for you. For more information phone M.A.P Financial Solutions on 5229 0200.

Cheapest Waterfront Homes in Australia A

n absolute waterfront village on the Bellarine Peninsula situated only 9km from the heart of Geelong is offering possibly the cheapest waterfront homes in Australia! Selling from just $136,500 for a one bedroom home (conditions apply), Pelican Shores Estate is a secure, friendly and established community for the mature aged. It offers not only a range of new homes but has a limited number of newly available home sites that are situated a stone’s throw from the water’s edge. If you can picture yourself relaxing on the deck of your brand new home enjoying the beautiful waters of Corio Bay, being the envy of all your friends, then Pelican Shores Estate could be the place for you. Like many baby boomers heading towards retirement, you may be at the stage where you are starting to consider your future lifestyle. This is a major life decision and, after considering all the options available, more and more baby boomers are making the move into over-50s lifestyle villages like Pelican Shores Estate. At Pelican Shores you can enjoy an amazing waterfront location, downsize to hassle-free living and become part of a vibrant, active and like-minded community. You may also be able to free up extra cash to spend on the more enjoyable things in life like travel.

Another big attraction of this lifestyle option is the variety of designs and styles of manufactured homes from which to choose. Where established retirement villages often have homes that are already built and the buyer has no real opportunity to customise the design, a Pelican Shores Estate home is built in a quality controlled factory and can be easily personalised to reflect your individual tastes and needs. That means you can specify exactly what you want in your new home. An important feature for many new residents at Pelican Shores Estate is that their manufactured home and residential site has been designed to require the minimum of maintenance, leaving you free to enjoy the wonderful waterfront lifestyle on offer. We asked Andrew Hoffman of Hampshire Property Group, which is a supplier of manufactured homes to resorts in NSW and Victoria, why anyone would buy a manufactured home in a lifestyle village rather than a place in a retirement village. “That’s easy,” he answered. “When you buy a manufactured home in a lifestyle village there are minimal additional costs involved and the home design can be tailored to your specific needs. You may also be eligible for Commonwealth financial assistance and it makes better financial sense because you can avoid the additional cost of deferred management fees. In fact, the better question to ask would be, ‘Why buy in a retirement village?’”

Pelican Shores Estate gives you the freedom to lock up your home, hook up the caravan or boat and hit the open road at the drop of a hat, safe in the knowledge that the gated community, professional and caring managers and friendly neighbours will keep an eye on your home for you. Being a pet-friendly village is also a greatly appreciated benefit to our residents. Those seeking the fun and companionship that a community such as Pelican Shores Estate has to offer can take advantage of the active social committee, village facilities that include a swimming pool, and a community centre that caters for all your social and recreational requirements. Boaties can join our boat club and use the jetty and boat ramp facilities. Pelican Shores Estate is situated on the stunning shores of Corio Bay. Come and visit with our friendly sales staff; soak up the atmosphere of our beautiful waterfront location; take a stroll along the boardwalk; inspect our new homes and discover how you too can enjoy a waterfront lifestyle. You are guaranteed to fall in love with Pelican Shores Estate Lifestyle Village!

Resort to comfort in retirement state-of-the-art community centre, heated indoor pool and spa, sauna and gymnasium - sound more like a resort than a retirement village? Current residents at Leopold’s Kensington Retirement Village have been enjoying this ultimate lifestyle for some time. The retirement village is also just a 12-minute drive from central Geelong and close to beaches and a golf course. Construction of the village is now complete, with only a handful of two-bedroom homes still available for immediate possession. Kensington’s resort-style drawcard offers a variety of activities to help residents stay fit and active, while an indoor area and games room with a billiard table keeps their minds busy. Residents can relax and unwind in a lounge sitting area, enjoy a cuppa in the dining and function room, or sip a drink at the happy hour bar. The village also has a theatre room, hairdressing facilities, massage consulting rooms and an internet and library area. Outdoor facilities include

Prices range from $289,000. Other features include securi-

ty gates and a 24-hour monitored alarm system to all units.

It is never to early to start Planning Ahead Ken is a pensioner He knows that spending some of his money on a pre-paid funeral with Tuckers is a good investment, and it assists his current pension entitlements.

On the road with Grey Outdoors he Grey Outdoors Leisure Tours provides small, intermittent tours for seniors from the Geelong region. A range of day tours are available to satisfy all sorts of customers, from garden lovers and art enthusiasts through to market fans, history buffs and general day trippers. Every month The Grey Outdoors also runs an overnight tour ranging in duration from one to 10 nights.

Grey Outdoors last year went on the Ghan train to spend a few nights in Darwin before flying home after eight days. Participants caught the Overlander train to stay overnight in Adelaide before boarding the Ghan at lunchtime the next day. A wonderful trip on the Ghan was everything participants expected, with lovely food beautifully presented, attentive staff and plenty to do, with whistlestop tours at Alice Springs and Katherine. The tour featured lovely accommodation in Darwin’s Cullen Bay, right near the harbour. The next few days included visis to Litchfield National Park,

Ken is reassured of the Eene¿ts to his family too. Financial peace of mind is a thoughtful decision.

GEELONG Private Hospital has completed a further stage in its $8 million expansion and refurbishment. The hospital this week opened a new purpose-built 17-bed ward on its top floor, level five. The acute medical ward will relocate to the new area. General manager Luke Edwards says most of the 17 new single rooms have great views of Corio Bay. “With large TVs, well-appointed en suites, magnificent views and the same great staff from the medical ward, both patients and their doctors will be most impressed with this new ward.” The expansion is part of a major redevelopment of the hospital, which has already renovated the second level’s ward areas and upgraded the third-level day stay area flooring. Level two now also has a relocated and expanded CSSD, or sterilising department, as well as increased storage and a larger staff area for doctors and theatre workers. Also on level two, an extra theatre has been fitted out with stateof-the-art equipment. The hospital’s in-patient rehabilitation ward will increase its capacity to 26 beds and cover the majority of level two. The same friendly faces remain with unchanged contact details to cater for growing demand to access in-patient rehabilitation. A new short-stay unit has also been established.

Nurse Kelly Smith in one of Geelong Private Hospital’s swish new rooms. An expansion project is underway concurrently with the renovations and redevelopment. A new Geelong Private Hospital Medical Centre is on the corner of Little Ryrie and Argyle streets with specialists now consulting from their new rooms. The new centre has also provided much-needed parking for consulting and the hospital. Rehabilitation outpatient services have also undergone an exciting expansion. A purpose-built outpatient rehabilitation programs area has opened in the medical centre with a gym, a multipurpose group space and three treatment rooms. The new area has also allowed for continued growth in the hospital’s pulmonary rehabilitation, Parkinson’s disease management and early intervention pain and falls prevention programs. New programs set to start in

2011 include a cognitive rehabilitation and reconditioning program as well as a hip and knee group. “The $8 million investment will ensure Geelong Private Hospital has the capacity to grow now and into the future to support and care for the community,” Mr Edwards says. The hospital now provides the region with 92 acute beds, five operating theatres - four in the main area and a dedicated theatre in the day-stay unit. The hospital cares for patients in rehabilitation, surgery, medical, coronary care and high dependency. The hospital’s angiography suite treats both cardiac and vascular patients. Sleep studies are conducted six nights a week on average. More information is available by phoning Mr Edwards on 5226 1690.

Ride height: Kings springs give the car a lower ride height and the wheels fit neatly into the wheel arches. Pictures: Tommy Ritchie 59900 Daihatsu Charade that is the most fuel-efficient vehicle he had ever owned. After Phil bought the Daihatsu he improved the handling and reduced the carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fuel consumption even more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t satisfied with the standard suspension so I put on KYB sports gas shocks and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got Kings springs which are full rated and give a lower ride height. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The car sits just right. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look outrageously low but it sits just right. It looks neat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The wheel arches fit neatly with the wheels and I put on 16 inch alloy wheels with 195 wide Goodyear tyres which are the lowest riding tyres ever made. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re called the F1 and they have got super rolling resistance they are a really popular tyre.â&#x20AC;? Phil said. He also added a small spoiler at the back. Phil said with just these minimum modifications he can get between 5 and 5.5 litres per 100 kilometres with around town driving and down to 4.8 litres per 100 kilometres on the highway. As well as fuel efficiency Phil said the little Daihatsu offered plenty of torque. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I sometimes have roof racks and I have regularly towed a trailer with half a tonne of crushed rock along the Bellarine Highway at 80ks,â&#x20AC;? Phil said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My partner had a property at Deans Marsh and we would drive down there in the Daihatsu with four

He maintained that 70-80 kilowatts for a small car is not necessary, but 37 is quite adequate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I come from the Wimmera and I travel back there often. I can drive at 100ks easily and can carry all my tools and equipmentâ&#x20AC;?

Downsized: Phil Baulch has gone from V8s to the fuel efficient Daihatsu.

hil Baulch has had a love affair with high performance cars since he was 18. But these days it is economy not kilowatts that Phil strives for in his vehicles. He said he had been a motoring enthusiast for nearly 40 years. In that time he has owned and run a performance motor-bike shop in Horsham and has raced cars at Winton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have experienced the range of high-speed bikes and I have had everything from V8s to twin cam Celicas,â&#x20AC;? Phil revealed. Today the once â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;rev head Philâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; has become the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;greeny Philâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; where he strives for maximum performance for minimal fuel usage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve now got the most joyful little car I have ever owned â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a 1994 Daihatsu Charade. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has got a 993cc three-cylinder engine which makes 37 kilowatts and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the most amazingly capable little car and that, by itself, is pretty cool,â&#x20AC;? Phil said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I started looking at what makes cars fuel efficient it is first and foremost weight. If you have to move 1500 kilograms you are going to use twice as much energy as you need to move 750 kilograms. Phil started looking at the weight of cars. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Registration labels display the weight of the car as determined by VicRoads. Now I am constantly looking at registration labels to see how much cars actually weigh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why cars are struggling now to produce fuel efficiency is that their weights have almost doubled over the years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I looked at a new Hondo Civic that weighs 1200 kilos. Recently I saw a 1972 Hondo Civic and it weighed just 650 kilograms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Admittedly there is a difference in the size of the car,â&#x20AC;? Phil said. He sold his 1998 Commodore to buy a little white

ow-impact collisions typical in shopping centre car parks are annoying to say the least. Add to this the fact that people rarely own up to damaging other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cars. It has been noticed that drivers are often scared to back up any further due to very limited vision. These are the occasions where reverse sensors are very welcome. Bumper Master fits reversing sensors to help customers overcome fears of backing into objects or even pedestrians. Reversing sensors help prevent damage to ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cars as well as the vehicles of neighbours and other motorists. They can also help when backing out of tight garages and past narrow gateposts. Bumper Master can also help owners improve the appearance of bumpers when selling vehicles. Bumpers are the first part of any car to incur damage â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and first impressions are important when trying to sell. All Bumper Master repairs come with a no-questions-asked warranty to give customers peace of mind. Best of all, most bumper repairs are done for less than the cost of insurance excesses. Located behind VicRoads at 3 Dowsett Street, South Geelong, Bumper Master has proven experience in providing an alternative repair service to bumper regions of any car. Owners wanting to improve the resale value of their cars should phone Bumper Master on 5221 0138.

Soccer cup ‘in sponsor coup’ BY ANDREW MATHIESON A GRAB for a last-moment sponsor has saved Geelong’s leading soccer clubs thousands of dollars. Geelong’s only competition involving all six league teams from five different divisions was stranded without a naming rights sponsor days out from its cup opener. But City of Greater Geelong handed over $8000 to take on sponsorship of the pre-season tournament. A previous deal involving State Government fitness initiative Go for Your Life was not renewed this year. Geelong Cup tournament liaison officer Russell Butler said clubs would have had to pay several expenses out of their own pockets to run the annual competition if council had not intervened. “It would have come out of the gate money and there would have been no dividend for the clubs,” he said. The champions will now receive $2500, runners-up $1500 and third $500 rather than forego any prize money. Butler said the clubs would have had to funnel into their own gate receipts to pay for referee fees, trophies and other organising costs. “That (sponsorship) will certainly now help the clubs themselves. “The competition was still going to go ahead with or without prize money. The clubs are more financially well off.” Butler said reducing the City of

Cup of life: Surf Coast and Corio clash in the cup’s opening round. Greater Geelong Cup to six teams had benefited the competition. Sunday league champion Hoppers Crossing was dropped from this year’s format. All six Geelong teams instead play five round-robin games rather than three pool matches before this year’s cup final and third and fourth play-off. “The change has made it more even and stronger,” Butler said. “We had a couple of weak teams. It really showed up (last year) when the top teams played the bottom teams.”

After Corio and Surf Coast played a 3-3 draw last Friday night, Butler expected this year to be the most exciting Cup competition yet. “First against sixth could go either way because most of their competitions are pretty even,” he said. Bell Park tackled Geelong Rangers and North Geelong met Geelong in Wednesday night’s two games after the Independent went to press. The Independent is a supporter of the cup.

sport Cats â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;primedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Downpour of snapper in bay On the bite

Snapper happy: Hudson Long with a good-size pinkie caught on a soft plastic lure from Corio Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inner-harbour.

BRIAN LONG

Cu r

MASSIVE downpours limited freshwater angling in the past week but saltwater action provided ample compensation in Corio Bay and offshore. Daniel Jones used his Hobie kayak to find snapper near Rippleside Pier where he cast soft plastics to catch and release about 20 fish to 48cm. A follow up session the next morning resulted in a similar number of fish, including a ripper of 61cm taken on Gulp three-inch minnows in the Smelt colour. Our boat also landed plenty of snapper with soft plastics between the pier and the Western Beach moorings. Many were only just size but the sheer number to be caught guaranteed a few quality fish by the end of the day. Tony and Joel Faith found the snapper willing to take either baits or soft plastics in Stingaree Bay where over two days they caught their bag limits, with the best a respectable 56cm. The same area also produced pike and flathead, with lure outfishing bait on both species. Garfish have become a common target, with the best locations including the landings beside Pivot Pier as well as Fishermanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Cunningham piers. Anglers found plenty of small snapper in the outer-harbour on bait and soft plastics along the edge of Wilson Spit, at Bird Rock and on the two spoilgrounds between Pelican Shores Caravan Park and Hermsley. Terry Carmichael fished the Point Richards area where the whiting action was slow until just on dark when a frantic session returned 20 fish from 36cm to 42cm on South Australian pippies. Harry Peal found a great patch of squid in the shallows just minutes from Clifton Springsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; boat ramp. He caught his bag limit in around 30 minutes using Clicks jigs in the 2.5 size. The deep water off St Leonards yielded quality snapper to 7kg along with a few fantastic gummy

shark between 5kg and 11kg. Fresh squid was the bait, with all fish taken just after dark. Swan Bay produced gummy shark to 4kg were after dark as well as some big salmon close to 2.5kg. Paul Piper nailed two large flathead both stretching the tape to 68cm along with a tailor of 1.6kg. Salmon were found from Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale, with most averaging close to 1kg but some reaching 2.5kg. Casting small soft plastics into the surface action was best, but anglers like Corey Gallagher tried surface poppers to also catch the odd surprise kingfish of between 2kg and 4kg. Portseaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Terry Sharpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s method while finding the kingfish working with the salmon recently has been to drop knife jigs deep below the salmon and just crank away. His best fish of 4.3kg was just one of 16 he has landed in the past three weeks. Floodwater coming down the Barwon River meant the only fish caught in the estuary where small salmon and mullet on the incoming tide. However, a few good salmon of around 800g were also taken. Anglers who overcame difficult conditions offshore found plenty of striped tuna, salmon and â&#x20AC;&#x2122;couta. Bottom bashers also caught quality flathead and snapper. Shark numbers were down but should improve again around the 40m to 50m line. Most of the Otway streams missed the heavy rain of last week, so bream anglers landed some fine fish. Most were between 32cm and 36cm but a couple of 40cm fish were landed from the Erskine River at Lorne on hard-bodied Atomic lures. All the best freshwater action was at Lake Purrumbete where big numbers of redfin were taken on bobbers and ice jigs. Andy Schmidt and Mal Kirkwood had no trouble catching their share, while Darryl McKenzie fished mudeye under a bubble float to nail two brown trout over 2kg each along with a rainbow of around 950g.

Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE Geelong Westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s form has been indifferent but the team stacks up better on paper with Glen Talarico, Sam Loftus, Shane Arthur and Josh Vrboski all capable of winning a match on their own. The Rams should get up but wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to take their opponents lightly. Other selections: SOUTH BARWON v Thomson, Bell Post Hill v LARA, North Geelong v EAST BELMONT, Newtown & Chilwell v ST JOSEPHS, GROVEDALE v Leopold. Division twoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season is going down to the wire again this season, with just three points separating the teams between third and eighth on the ladder. While St Peters isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t one of the

teams still in contention, it could still have a role to play against St Albans Breakwater tomorrow. St Albans Breakwater now sits precariously in sixth position after lowering its colours to Highton last week and must dig deep to play any role at all. It has the cattle but does it still have the mettle? Selections: Marshall v TORQUAY, Newcomb & District v GUILD ST MARYS, North Shore v ALEXANDER THOMSON, ST ALBANS BREAKWATER v St Peters, Murgheboluc v HIGHTON, Waurn Ponds v GEELONG CITY. In division three, perennial finalist Teesdale finds itself seventh with two rounds to go, so a match against second placed Corio would be the last thing it needs. Teesdale needs to start now if it wants to prove it belongs in the top six. Selections: CORIO v Teesdale, MODEWARRE v Inverleigh, Lethbridge v WINCHELSEA, Bannockburn v LITTLE RIVER, Corio Bay v MEREDITH, Bell Park bye.

Popped by: A kingfish caught by Corey Gallagher with a popper off Queenscliff.

THE CRITICAL match between second and third placed premier cricket teams Dandenong and Geelong gets underway tomorrow at Kardinia Park as a one-day fixture after play was impossible last week due to heavy rain the night before. While the format changes, the result required for both clubs doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. The Cats wobbled through either side of Christmas but have found some form and will be primed to stake their claim for a spot at the top of the table. Just two rounds remain in Geelong Cricket Association and, while the weather has been the miserable talking point of the season, it has at least provided a close competition, with nine teams still a chance of contesting finals. Manifold Heights is the ninth team but its season could still have a pulse with a victory over sixth placed Geelong West and other results going its way. David Lineen and Ben Knight lead the run-scoring and wickettaking lists at Manifold, although Scott Condy has leant some support with the ball.
