Queenscliff on song with new busking event as Easter appeal fundraiser BY ERIN PEARSON POINT Lonsdale Primary School teacher Hannah Petrie-Allbutt will use the power of music to help inspire children as part of Queenscliff’s new Good Friday appeal. Ms Petrie-Allbutt, an integration aid, put pen to paper to boost student morale after watching children struggle to assimilate in the playground. Ms Petrie-Allbutt’s song, You Save Me, will feature as a theme song for a Kids Busking for the Kids fundraising event on Good Friday. The initiative will seek to raise around $20,000 for Royal Children’s Hospital after the demise of the town’s traditional seafood feast fundraiser. Ms Petrie-Allbutt hoped the busking event would also be a catalyst to bring children together. “While growing up I always felt different and coming back to school and seeing other kids feel the same made me realise how hard school can be.” Queenscliff Lonsdale Business and Tourism Association president Graham Christie said a Good Friday without a children’s hospital fundraiser “wasn’t an option” for the community. “It was intolerable for us not to have some type of fundraiser, so we decided to go back to basics,” he said. “We’re well known for seafood but also our quality young kids. “The kids down here stand out because we have the oldest population per capita in Australia - our average age is 68. All the children in the town are generally grandchildren, so they’re precious to us.” Organisers said Kids Busking for the Kids would feature 10 busking stations around Hesse Street and in the town’s harbour precinct as well as food and For the children: Hannah Petrie-Allbutt rehearses You Save Me with school student Harry Moran.

Easter ‘flasher’ fears BY ERIN PEARSON AN INFLUX of holiday-makers over Easter could prove irresistible to flashers stalking beaches on the Bellarine Peninsula and Surf Coast, police have warned. Police this week released images of two men wanted for questioning over flashing incidents at 13th Beach and Torquay. Police called for information in the Independent in February after 11 reports of flashing on beaches from Ocean Grove to Torquay over summer.

Geelong Sexual Offences Unit’s Dale Menzies said Bellarine Peninsula beaches accounted for nine of the obscene exposures. Victims reported a further four between February and March, he said. The latest report on March 23 involved a man making “inappropriate advances” to a female on 13th Beach before undressing. Detective Senior Constable Menzies said the man was last seen in Burgundy-coloured, 1990s model Ford station wagon.

Police described the suspect as between 35 and 45 years old and 180cm with a stocky build and a tanned complexion. He had short, cropped hair and a tattoo of a Sun on the right side of his chest, Det Snr Constable Menzies said. He urged anyone with information to phone 000 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Torquay Detective Sergeant Craig Blunt said flashers usually appeared in warmer months but feared they could return during

Whites Beach on February 19 before undressing in front of them The women left the beach but the man approached them again in a car park. The women described the man as about 183cm, thin, in his mid to late-20s with brown collar-length hair. He was last seen in a bright blue ute with a Conargo Pub sticker on the rear window. Torquay Police Station assembled a special taskforce of plainclothes officers to hunt the flashers but have yet to make an arrest.

Easter and the Bells Beach Rip Curl Pro when tens of thousands of visitors flocked to the Surf Coast. “If we do have warmer weather over Easter people need to be vigilant of those loitering in car parks,” he said. “Even if people think it’s not an emergency we need them to call 000 because we need to know about these people. Getting an offender’s registration number or description really helps.” Police said a man approached two women walking on Torquay’s

Expert’s analysis ‘blows away’ city CBD crisis myth BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG’S so-called CBD crisis is perception rather than reality, according to a leading property valuation firm. Opteon Victoria research manager Richard Jenkins said Geelong’s central business district was in fact healthy and positioned for rental growth His analysis had found a CBD retail vacancy rate of 8.3 per cent, with six large premises skewing the result. “While that’s higher than where we’d like it to be, if we take out the six vacant shopping premises over 600 square metres (of floor space) the vacancy rate falls to 4.5 per cent,” Mr Jenkins said. “A vacancy rate under five per cent is a good position for rental growth.” Mr Jenkins suggested subdividing the six large vacant buildings. “Larger spaces are not relevant to current retailers. Tenants looking for that amount of space are interested in the regional homemaker type sites,” he said. “It’s up to landlords and other stakeholders to work out an alternative use for those sites. My advice would be to slice those larger spaces into multiple tenancies.” Mr Jenkins said he ran his analysis to find out what was “really happening” in the CBD. “There’s been a lot of discussion in the media about vacancies in the CBD, leading to a perception in the market that the space is in crisis but the numbers don’t support that. The CBD is healthy and in a good position to promote rental growth. “In fact, rents have grown in the past five years. Vacancies have declined despite the Westfield expansion and the global financial crisis. “The Westfield expansion actually stimulated the take-up of retail space in the CBD. Demand for traditional retail sites is healthy.” “Having a few high-profile vacancies fed the perception of a CBD in crisis.” Mr Jenkins said recent closures of high-profile retail chains also painted a misleading picture of central Geelong. “The issue for the recent retail failures was not falling sales but exposure to debt by the parent company. The problem was finance, not turnover.” Mr Jenkins said the outlook for the CBD was bright.

in brief

‘Multiple fronts’ for growth in state plan BY ERIN PEARSON LARA, Lovely Banks and Batesford are targets for growth under the new Baillieu Government, according to South Barwon MP Andrew Katos. He told a developers’ lobby lunch meeting in Geelong last Friday the Government would use the centres to “bridge the gap” between the city and Melbourne. “Our Government feels this region could cater for Melbourne’s growth. We can’t just keep growing Melbourne,” he said. “Lara is very important to Geelong and there is developable land there suitable for someone looking for their first home. It’s a viable option and should be used to attract people who usually go to Melbourne’s west.” Mr Katos revealed the growth plan four days before council adopted a controversial rezoning application for hun-

dreds of homes off Lara’s Caddys Road and a separate amendment to expand the town’s shopping centre. Mr Katos told the Urban Developers Institute of Australia meeting the Government was seeking 25 years of land supply in the region. The “multiple growth fronts” also included Ocean Grove, Torquay, Armstrong Creek and central Geelong, he said. “We will only recommend growth expansion (that is) determined necessary. “We will give certainty and allow councils to plan forward. It’s illogical to just build on one site.” Mr Katos said City of Greater Geelong needed a “good mix” of land and homes for first, second and third-time buyers and others seeking a “sea change”. The Coalition would also seek highdensity developments across Fyans and West Fyans streets between Bellarine

Sex attacker A MAN of Indian appearance could be responsible for three sex assaults in central Geelong, according to police. A police spokesperson said officers believed the man assaulted two women within an hour of each other in Yarra Street on December 21 after attacking a woman in Ryrie Street on October 11.

Armed robbery

Street and Shannon Avenue. Development institute policy director Martin Musgrave called Mr Katos’s announcement “positive”. The institute was particularly happy about the variety of areas targeted for growth. “Having more than one growth area means more choice for purchasers and more scope for there to be more affordability because of that competition,” Mr Musgrave said. “We find in Melbourne with multiple development corridors there is more competition, so developers feed on each other and end up with lower prices. “Buyers will have the opportunity for a greater choice and developers the opportunity to attract people who might have otherwise thought about the growth areas in Melbourne. “I think that makes for exciting times in Geelong.”

POLICE are hunting an armed robber who escaped with cash from a North Geelong 7-Eleven store. Police said the man used a knife to demand money from an attendant before leaving with the store’s till at 12.08am on Wednesday.

Leopold centre COUNCILLORS have voted to go ahead with development of a $15.7 million “community hub” at Leopold. Cr Rod Macdonald said the next three council budgets would contain funding for the project, which would include a library, a youth area, multipurpose rooms and a children’s centre.

Women found POLICE have found two women lost in bushland near Apollo Bay overnight on Tuesday. A police spokeperson said a CFA team found the women in a gully on Wednesday morning.

BY ERIN PEARSON CLIFTON Springs’ Kelly Dixon is in for the ride of her life when she graduates from university in Darwin next month. Instead of flying north, the mother-oftwo will pedal her way 3850 kilometres to collect her arts and teaching degrees from Charles Darwin University. The 43-year-old “enthusiast for life” said she would set up her camp on roadsides during the gruelling 29-day journey. Ms Dixon said she chose to embark on the ride so she would never forget her university achievement. “Education is so important to me, so there’s no point in me graduating without any one knowing about it,” she laughed. “Life is there for living. The world is an amazing place and you have to bleed every minute out of it. “This will be a great way of celebrating the three-and-a-half years of hard work I’ve put in to get my double degree.” Ms Dixon said her 14-year-old son was nervous about the big ride. “My youngest is consumed with the concern I’m going to die and the other is planning a party but I know they’re very proud. “There’s no question my first night camping in a desert is going to be nervewracking but it’s going to be a very liberating experience. “I had two children – I reckon I can do this.” Ms Dixon wanted to use her education to help troubled teens after seeing their plight during work experience at Newcomb Secondary College. Charles Darwin University’s Richmond Hodgson said the campus was counting down Ms Dixon’s arrival. “We couldn’t have a better spokesperson for adult education,” Mr Hodgson said. Ms Dixon will depart from Newcomb Secondary College this Saturday.

Suppliers dump Easter feast BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN THE MAIN suppliers of a new Geelong Seafood Feast have withdrawn their involvement a week before the event, they told the Independent this week. Organisers had promoted the event as replacing Queenscliff’s former seafood festival, which raised tens of thousands of dollars

for Royal Children’s Hospital’s Good Friday Appeal. The Queenscliff event’s website said it had become Geelong Seafood Feast and moved to Deakin University’s waterfront campus for 2011. Spokesmen for the event’s fish suppliers did not want to be identified but said they would only participate if proceeds went to the

Good Friday Appeal. But executive director Christine Unsworth said the appeal had not registered Geelong Seafood Feast. “The event is not endorsed by the Good Friday Appeal. If you have an interest in, or concerns about the event, I suggest you contact Consumer Affairs or Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.”

The website claimed support from Australian Fisheries Management Authority but a spokesman said it had not been contacted this year. The festival website also said over 10,000 families would attend Geelong Seafood Feast and consume 6.5 tonnes of seafood. Former Queenscliff festival general manager Grant Talbot said

he was not involved in the Geelong event. “I’m retired,” he said. Consumer Affairs Victoria registered the event as a charity fundraiser this week, listing Barwon Health Foundation as its beneficiary. The event’s public officer, James Rae, of Sunbury, said the feast would raise money for Royal

Animal society welcomes plan to abolish ‘death rule’ The State’s proposed code of practice would allow animals to stay in shelters for more than 28 days and for operators to foster them out to carers. “At the moment we can’t take animals out of the shelter, so this is a big plus,” Dr Walter said. “It opens up new opportunities to get animals into new homes because some animals get quite stressed in cages and don’t cope well and traumatised puppies and kittens need extra attention. It’s an exciting time.” RSPCA Victoria animal services manager Allie Jalbert welcomed the extra opportunity to save animals. “We believe every animal has different needs and should have a care plan to accommodate this. RSPCA believes this new operating environment will help improve animal welfare outcomes in Victoria.”

BY ERIN PEARSON DOGS and cats in Geelong’s pound have more hope of finding new homes under a plan to abolish Victoria’s 28-day “death rule”, according to Geelong Animal Welfare Society. President Ian Walter said the rule could save “hundreds” of animals each year. “Anything that can reduce the number put down is great. It means we have a chance now to save so many,” Dr Walter said. “It will bring challenges and it will bring extra costs but we’ll see better results than we see now with the current plan.” The society euthanised 7199 dogs and cats in 2009/2010. Department of Primary Industries’s draft plan specifies minimum standards of care for dogs and cats in shelters and council pounds.

Often we work within our own cultural group but really we want to be part of the wider community.” Singaporean migrant Robin Arthur said that even after 22 years in Geelong he still could bring new ideas to the community. “I think this plan will bring a new identity to Geelong as more people realise they will be welcome here,” he said.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG has a new plan to attract more migrants to the city, according to a councillor. Eddy Kontelj said council’s multicultural action plan would act like an immigration policy with an induction process for new arrivals. Councillors adopted the $50,000 plan at a meeting on Tuesday night. “Without a plan like this we could drive people away,” Cr Kontelj said. “The best cities are doing this but it’s a first for Geelong.” Cr Kontelj said the plan aimed to maximise the economic, social and cultural contributions of migrants. “Some of our great success stories were written by migrants – think of the Costas, Siketas and Malishevs. “This plan will help us learn how to best work with the next wave of arrivals so they can make new success stories.” One of the plan’s 35 action items included promotion of Geelong as a destination of choice for migrants. The plan would highlight Geelong’s cultural diversity, benefits for skilled migrants and study and investment opportunities in partnership with key businesses and service agencies. “We want to take away barriers that may have been there (to migrants) in the past,” Cr Kontelj said. “This plan also helps us deal

Welfare ‘feels growth pains’ BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN POPULATION growth across the region has prompted another surge in families in financial and housing crisis, according to welfare agencies. Salvation Army family support manager Wendy Katsanbiris said she noted an influx of requests for financial and housing assistance. “Waiting lists are growing,” Ms Kasanbiris said. “We have 20 to 30 people who miss out on appointments daily. “Geelong is a victim of its own success, in a way. The growth in Geelong means properties once affordable to low-income families are now out of reach. “There is a misconception that if people move to Geelong they will find cheap accommodation. One family just turned up after

couple of days’ bus trip and couldn’t find accommodation and came in to see us for help. “We’ve heard of people having to move to regional areas like Mildura to afford housing.” Ms Kasanbiris said the Salvos had secured funding from Federal Government to increase assistance appointments by 20 per cent. “Those have filled immediately but that funding ends in July, so our resources will be cut back then.” Barwon Community Legal Service Manager Nick Hudson said “any number of people” were without adequate accommodation in Geelong. “In fact, one of our lawyers got kicked out of his rental property this week, so the housing crunch has impacted on one of our own staff,” Mr Hudson said.

“We’re also fielding enquiries on financial counselling and refer people to Diversitat, which is shouldering the burden for most of Geelong. “It’s the people who need it the most who are the least likely to find housing and assistance they need.” Geelong Food Relief manager Wendy Greaves said she had noticed a “significant increase” in families presenting food vouchers in the past two weeks. “This time of year is tight for families anyway, so it might be part of the annual cycle,” Mrs Greaves said. “Parents have school costs to pay and Easter and school holidays add an extra burden. “When you combine higher energy bills, rising petrol, and higher food bills, it’s not surprising.”

Ambo patients’ waits ‘ramped up’ BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN FIVE per cent of ambulance patients wait more than 40 minutes for transfers to beds after arriving at Geelong Hospital, according to new State Government figures. The Government statistics on ambulance delays at hospital emergency departments, known as ramping, showed average waits of 17 minutes. Twenty-five per cent of patients waited longer than 20 minutes. Ten per cent waited in ambulances for more than 25 minutes and one per cent waited longer than one hour, the figures revealed. Health Minister David Davis this week publicly released the figures, from July to December, for

8

The Independent, Friday April 15, 2011

the first time. “For too long many of these statistics were hidden from public scrutiny but the Government is determined to ensure people can get a realistic picture on how the system is performing.” Mr Davis said the Coalition Government was committed to delivering 800 new beds in its first term to ease banking up of patients due to bed shortages. “Access block” could force several ambulances to wait simultaneously on hospital ramps with patients, he said. “Ambulance Victoria and our major public hospitals will need to work together to reduce patient transfer times.”

Pre-commitment allows a gambler to set limits on how much they will spend or how long they will play – before they start gambling. The Productivity Commission called this ‘informed consent’ and noted it is critical to encourage responsible gambling. How can you help?

EXHIBITION ON FEMALE CRIME NOW OPEN Wicked women, seductive sinners, vicious vixens – the female criminal is portrayed in many guises in popular culture, but what do these stereotypes tell us about real women and crime? This is the central theme of a new exhibition now on show at the National Wool Museum until 13 June, in its only Victorian showing. From the moment the first female convicts stepped ashore, the brutal reality faced by infamous female offenders such as ‘the man-woman murderer’ Eugenia Falleni, sly grogger Kate Leigh and poisoner Yvonne Fletcher was in stark contrast to the glamour of the noir seductress and pulp novel siren. The exhibition examines these extremes, traversing criminological theory, popular culture and true stories of our most notorious female criminals. Free Floor Talk by the Curator Join us for a floor talk with the Curator of Femme Fatale, Nerida Campbell as she walks us through this fascinating exhibition. Covering topics such as criminal theory, mass media and its influence, the female criminal in popular culture, the management of women in the justice system and some of Australia’s most infamous female criminals, this promises to provide a fascinating insight into female crime.

When: Tuesday 19 April, 2.00pm to 2.45pm Where: Gallery 3, Top Floor, National Wool Museum Entry costs: $7.30 adult; $5.90 concession; $3.65 child; $20 family. Floor talk at no extra charge (sponsored by Historic Houses Trust and the Australian Government’s Visions of Australia). RSVP: Essential on 5272 4701. 26 Moorabool Street Geelong, 3220 Tel: 03 5272 4701 Web: www.nwm.vic.gov.au Email: nwminfo@geelongcity.vic.gov.au Open: Monday - Friday 9.30am to 5.00pm, Saturday and Sunday 1.00pm to 5.00pm. Closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day and Good Friday.

The floor talk is at no extra charge but Museum entry charges do apply and bookings are essential.

Please note: Displaying the reality of documented crimes presents some strong and potentially sensitive material and themes. Visitors can make a choice whether to view this more sensitive content, which will be clearly signed and identified.

‘Dodgy tatts’ alarm in city BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN UNQUALIFIED and unregistered backyard tattooists are “butchering people� and leaving professionals to fix the mess, Geelong tattoo artists have warned. They believe that at least 20 backyarders are operating in the region without health department checks or registrations. Shinto Tattoos owner Jason Stewart said the backyarders were “cashing in� on Geelong’s surging tattoo scene. He believed said tattoo artists should have to meet minimum requirements. “People open up shops butchering people and we have to do the fix,� Mr Stewart said. “Lots of backyard tattooists think they can do it, mainly for under-age kids, and then they tell the kids to say they got it from a professional studio. It gives us professionals a bad name. “The backyarders in the region are putting people’s health at risk because they aren’t following proper safety procedures. If this continues, the tattoo scene will do a back flip – in a couple of years the work will be tattoo removal and cover-ups.� Mr Stewart said health authori-

Tattoo you: Geelong tattooists are warning customers to ensure they secure professional services. ties inspected tattoo studios at the point of registration to ensure they complied with health regulations. “But they don’t look at work standards. Tattooists should meet minimum requirements.� Professional Tattooing Associa-tion of Australia national secretary Patsy Farrow said the industry lacked an apprenticeship system. “We get a lot of calls from would-be tattooists. Everyone wants to jump into this business,�

Ms Farrow said. “People are picking up tattoo kits on the internet for $100. If you can afford to rent a shop you can be in business. “There’s not enough policing by the health department. There needs to be more policing on who is allowed to open studios.� Ms Farrow said the association was lobbying for a licensing system for individual tattoo artists in addition to the registration of premises.

Club’s fowl passions Join the club JOHN VAN KLAVEREN THE GOOD people from Geelong and District Poultry Club have heard all the jokes. The birds, the feathers, the roosters, the legs - all of them either paltry or foul. But it’s the efforts they put into improving the breeding of one of our favourite food sources that actually pays off for us all. “We are custodians of the pure-bred genes,” club president Bob French said. “The chicken industry keeps crossbreeding but you can’t do that forever. At some point you have to reintroduce purer breeds. “And that’s where we come in.” The club held its Bantam Bonanza event at Geelong Show Grounds last weekend, with typical categories like soft feather, hard feather, waterfowl and, of course, bantam in both heavy and light divisions. After seeing some of the specimens strutting their way through the show it’s easy to understand how the boxing world decided to borrow the term bantam for a weight category. And for keen backyard chook keepers, it’s not just a case of rocking up to the show grounds and showing off. A myriad rules and regulations govern the event under the auspices of Poultry Stud Breeders and Exhibitors Victoria. Bob said pure-bred poultry was amazingly popular. “You can’t move on the main days in the poultry pavilion at the Geelong show, and the Melbourne Showgrounds gets thousands through their poultry exhibitions,” he said. “It’s an Australian way of life, keeping a few chooks in the backyard.” Committeeman Don Davis said the club leased the pavilion at Royal Geelong Agricultural and Pastoral Society’s show grounds. “We’ve been there for donkey’s years,” Don explained. “We try to do a few things to improve the area. We recently completed a major renovation of our poultry pens – it took us two years. “Everyone pitches in and it turned out to be a lot of fun – some of us even learned new non-poultry related skills.

Fine feathered friends: Bob French with two of his prize roosters. “We’re getting together an honour board because the club has been around for more than 50 years. It’s one of the longest-lived clubs in the state. “We have 40 to 50 members at the moment. We did have a strong junior membership but they tend to lose interest. “Some of them come back later as adults but we know we have to have juniors coming on or the club won’t last.” Don said junior and novice members could call on advice and encouragement from the club’s experienced members in all aspects of breeding, keeping and showing poultry. The club tried to retain its family orientation, holding regular meetings with guest speakers, he said. The club will run its fifth annual super-show at the showgrounds’ poultry pavilion on May 14. The club has a website at geelong.backyardpoultry.com. Don said anyone interested in joining the club could phone him on 5275 8707 or email psbevchair @gmail.com.

The Federal Government appointed Climate Commission participated in a tour of the Geelong refinery hosted by Shell Vice President Downstream Australia, Andrew Smith (4th from the right) and Refinery General Manager, Mark Schubert (far right).

CLIMATE COMMISSION VISITS REFINERY

ABRA CADABRA and the Wizard appears.

Shell Geelong Refinery recently hosted the Climate Commission – a federally appointed panel who are on a national tour to explain the science, impact and global response to climate change and the operation of carbon pricing.

wow customers can wash their cars for just $10 with presentation of coupon.

The visit was welcomed as Shell shares the widespread concern that the emission of greenhouse gases, such as CO2 from human activities, is contributing to global climate change. Shell also supports the Australian Government’s efforts to introduce a price on carbon.

Wizard Car Wash are open 24 hours and have two Touch-Free Automatics, four Self-Serve Car Wash Bays and four Vacuum Bays plus two Dog Washes coming soon.

Shell was able to explain to the Commissioners some of our routine activities to reduce our CO2 footprint. We were also able to showcase some of the key projects we are involved in such as the Northern Water Plant (which will provide recycled water to the refinery, saving 5% of Geelong’s fresh water supply) and demonstrate our commitment and contribution to the local community.

Customer service is also a high priority at the Wizard Car Wash and is staffed from 9am-5pm daily. Visit Belmont Shopping Village today and save.

The discussion was constructive and there was recognition that the refinery is an emission-intensive and trade exposed industry. At a public meeting held later the same day, the Chief Commissioner, Professor Tim Flannery, acknowledged Shell will need assistance to manage a transition to a carbon price scheme. Further information about Shell’s position on climate change can be found at www.shell.com/home/content/ environment_society/environment/climate_change

buckets & bouquets BOUQUETS to Shaun Riches for saying what needed to be said (Letters, April 8). One wonders whether those entrusted with keeping the city safe are doing their duties or spending time on trivialities. Are plans and strategies in place or just more “gunna” this and “gunna” that? Duped, Highton

BOUQUETS to Barwon Water for its Water Secure Home program. A nice plumber and apprentice came to our home and checked all our taps and toilet. They replaced a number of leaky washers. The visit was free because we are pensioners, otherwise it would have cost $30. Grandma and Grandpa, Grovedale

BUCKETS to low lives who have repeatedly broken into my car even though it contains no valuables. At least close the doors when you’re finished so I don’t get a wet bum on the way to work if it has rained. Wet Bum, Grovedale

BUCKETS to a club where I waited one and a half hours to be served an entrée of mainly lettuce leaves for $18. Then we were told we could have our garlic bread for free but it never appeared. We cancelled the rest of our meal and left. Disgruntled Ex-Member, Ocean Grove

BUCKETS to Keith of Whittington. I was disappointed when I didn’t see a contribution from him in the April 1 Independent. He’s the only reason I read Buckets and Bouquets. Keep up the good work, buddy. Stacy, Norlane BOUQUETS to a lovely man who handed in my purse containing $50 at Coles in Shannon Avenue. Your honest was greatly appreciated and I was able to buy my groceries. God bless you. Forever Grateful, Manifold Heights BOUQUETS to the person who put aside a yellow bag I dropped in Fairview Avenue. I was walking my son in his trike when the bag slipped from my grip. I was so grateful when I found it after retracing my steps. Grateful Owner, Newtown BOUQUETS to Moolap school children’s choir for its performance at Roccoco aged care facility. Credit goes to the staff who trained them and to the parents who supported the children on the day, which was enjoyed by all. Resident’s Family, Thomson BUCKETS to Travelling Aussie (Buckets and Bouquets, April 8) for bucketing me. Are you naive or just stupid? The only thing Phuket and Bali love about our culture is our tourist dollars. Forgotten the bombing of innocent Australians? I’m also well-travelled but don’t stick my head in the sand. Proud Patriot, Breakwater BUCKETS to the person took a sun umbrella from a yard in Herne Hill. I hope you had fun. Thanks for slashing it and the fairy lights, too. Next time you will pay because police have been told. Mad As Hell, Herne Hill

BOUQUETS to all the nurses and other staff at St John of God Hospital. You are all wonderful and a credit to Geelong. Bouquets also to my roommate, Betty, who was an inspiration. I wish you a great 80th birthday. Getting better each day. Maribel, Geelong West BUCKETS to a real estate agent with the cheek to call waterfront living “affordable” when prices start at $358,000. Affordable for whom? How much does someone have to earn to afford such an apartment in Geelong? Keith, Whittington BOUQUETS to a cute male nurse who made me feel comfortable and made me laugh while I waited with my brother in Geelong Hospital’s emergency department. Bouquets to the other nurses for helping my brother and putting up with his foul mouth. RM, Herne Hill BUCKETS to Keith (Buckets and Bouquets, April 8). Have you ever talked to the mall rats? Most have experienced trauma, are in care and/or have unstable role models. Maybe you should spend a day with youth services. Billie, Hamlyn Heights

THE carbon tax debate confronts us with questions that must be answered in simple and straightforward terms. Would any Labor politician, either state or federal, answer the following simple questions. What tonnage of coal does Australia export annually? What tonnage of coal is used by Australian industry annually? Is it planned to put a tax on these Australian industries? Does Federal Government plan to add an equivalent cost, or levy, to be paid by overseas companies that import our coal? Does Federal Government endorse the export of coal to countries with no settled carbon tax legislation? If so, why? If coal exports continue as they do presently with Federal Government approval, would this be another example of Government hypocrisy? John Cromarty Leopold

THE April 1 Independent reported on issues dear to the hearts of residents near Spring Creek and Bells Beach. Xavier Rudd’s successful protest against highdensity housing plans for Spring Creek valley caused the developers and planners to think again but it was only a matter of time before they raised their heads again, albeit with lesser density of housing. I fear that the Bells Beach reserve and the Spring Creek valley will be unrecognisable in future thanks to the collaboration of Surf Coast Shire, developers and Great Ocean Road Coast Committee. Shirley Douglas Torquay

GEELONG Environment Council is outraged that Alcoa’s coal mine in the heritage-listed Anglesea heathland has been proposed for expansion (Independent, March 25).

Great Ocean Road tours to the Otway Fly or the 12 Apostles. That’s a saving of $120.

I WOULD like to comment on the difficulty in which many Queenscliff Harbour users now find themselves. The simplest and probably cheapest way for State Government to remedy the situation that has arisen from the ending of the moratorium on fee increases would be for the Government to pay the harbour the difference between what users were told years ago they would pay and what the harbour now feels commercial necessity forces it to charge. That is, the Government should subsidise the harbour so all may use it at a moderate charge. So far the Government has given some assistance to the harbour by moving Parks Victoria back from Geelong and some classes of harbour users have been given substantial discounts to encourage them to stay. The position of harbour users, including adjacent businesses, and the history of a decade of broken promises need to be explained to the Government because it may not be fully-aware of the difficulties rumoured to be faced by harbour business operators, nor of the emigration to cheaper locations of berth holders, including much of the couta boat fleet. The formerly affordable, resident-friendly harbour was allowed to deteriorate - some of it can still be seen collapsing into Swan Bay. The new harbour is a beautiful development but if residents of average means cannot afford to use it why was it built? Colin Bishop Queenscliff

The open-cut coalmine is 300-hectares, with a proposed 300ha expansion. Alcoa proposes to renew its 50-year lease of the 7000ha heathland for a further 50 years. The mine supplies 40 per cent of the electricity used by Alcoa’s Point Henry aluminium smelter, with the other 60 per cent from the grid. As a result of community actions in the past, Anglesea Heath is listed on the register of the National Estate. It is widely recognised as having flora, fauna and biodiversity values of international significance. Conservationists across Victoria are expressing grave concerns at the prospect of a further loss of intact heathland, an extremely valuable and unique ecosystem. The perceived need for an expansion is because the mine has limited coal remaining unless Alcoa decides to mine deeper. Further deep mining of the existing hole could provide adequate coal until 2022. It is hard to comprehend that a heathland that has existed and evolved for thousands of years and is now valued as an ecological asset of international importance should be sacrificed for short-term coal production for an energy-hungry industry. If the mine cannot be deepened, alternative energy must be sourced for the Point Henry smelter. Australia ships natural gas to China - perhaps gas could be shipped to the Alcoa’s Point Henry port facility. Joan Lindros Geelong Environment Council president

letters the state Coalition Government for “Ocean Grove’s appalling Shell Road sports reserve”. What was equally appalling was the lack of any funding for this project over the course of the 11year term of the state Bracks and Brumby governments. Now that Wayne Swan appears to be looking for budget cuts of his own due to a $4.5 billion black hold in the federal budget, I wonder whether Mr Cheeseman will be able to make good on the Federal Government’s promise of $2 million for the project. Colin Benbow Portarlington

Change, don’t just tax A federal panic attack IN RESPONSE to the letters titled ‘Taxed into oblivion’ and ‘Flannery’s folly’ in last week’s Independent, global economies are commercial businesses in which everything is rated with a dollar value. Stock markets verify this. Monetary wealth is created through the processing of raw materials to manufacture value-added products. If Earth itself is the raw material surely any logical person could foresee the flaws with this arrangement long-term? Even ancient hunter-gatherers were careful not to over-exploit their environment. Are we less intelligent than Neanderthal man? Supposed wealth, when monetised, is the currency utilised by global populations. The global financial crisis exposed the inflated bubble of imaginary prosperity we have created, fuelled by sham trading schemes, hedge funds, derivatives speculation, mortgage-backed securities et cetera. The bubble has burst and global economies are struggling to maintain the illusion. Governments are perplexed. Their limited revenue creation has resulted in cost-cutting budgets, programs of severe austerity and introduction of new taxes. The carbon and mineral resources rent taxes are entrenched in over exploitation of resources, the global financial crisis, population growth, reductions in emissions and maintaining economic growth. Governments have realised sustainability is the new paradigin. A new world order is in progress. Polluting industries, environmental vandalism, wealth distribution imbalances, class distinctions et cetera must be obviated. People want change, not the nugatory future we can expect from present plutocracies. Ralph Huisman Belmont

FEDERAL Government is creating panic to try making us cough up more money for a carbon tax. This is a huge racket to try bolstering the Government coffers. Climate changes are ongoing and can be caused by a number of factors such as earthquakes and meteor strikes, both of which can throw Earth off its axis, and sun spots et cetera. Four ice ages have been detected, the last 26,000 years ago when the existing climate change commenced. Smoke from fires is also blamed yet Australia’s indigenous people used fire for their needs and protection for 40,000 years prior to whites taking over their country by force. Up to about 75 years ago all houses had at least two wood fireplaces and industry also used wood. However, these smoke sources are only minor compared to wild fires. Firewood, coal, gas, oil et cetera are nature’s way of providing heat and power. In my own observations at Torquay, sea levels have not changed in over 60 years yet so-called experts with their computer models warned us over 15 years ago of huge sea level rises, which was bull. We do not want panic forced on us to tax us even further. Cliff Winkler Torquay

Spinner: Darren Cheeseman.

LAST week’s Independent provided further proof that at both state and federal level the Labor party continues to pedal its spin. In the story about the cost of moorings at Queenscliffe Har-bour, Bellarine MP Lisa Neville accused the Coalition government of “delaying the moorings as it sought budget cuts”. The situation at Queenscliff is a direct result of deals done to privatise the harbour and the resulting five-year berth fees moratorium under the previous Labor government, in which she was a minister. In another story Darren Cheeseman sought funding from

Beckley Centre set for ‘grand opening’ after $8.2m upgrade xcitement built this week as last-minute touches were added to a $8.2 million redevelopment of Corio’s Beckley Centre for its grand opening tonight. Geelong Greyhound Racing Club chairman Maurice Blair says he is praying for good weather to show off Geelong’s latest top-class venue, Beckley Centre. “A lot of faith has been shown in this redevelopment,” Mr Blair says “In fact, TAB SPORTSBET has agreed to become the major sponsor for the newly named Beckley Centre. “This substantial sponsorship shows that TAB, the major player in wagering in Victoria, has the faith in the industry and in the Geelong region to make this investment. “We now have training facilities that are second to none coupled with plenty of parking and great kitchen facilities.” Mr Blair says Beckley Centre will be perfect for conferences, weddings and trade displays, adding an economic impact to the region. More than 200 VIP invitations had been sent for the grand opening, he said. “We’re expecting a great turnout.” Mr Blair says the facility has already been through

Beckley Centre’s new grandstand takes pride of place in the redevelopment. a dry run to ensure any potential teething problems are ironed out. The facility would be used for three race meetings a week. “We will be catering for other tracks as they are redeveloped, in addition to our regular Friday night and Monday daytime meetings.” Mr Blair says the new facility has already received interstate and international attention, with visitors inspecting the design and facilities.

Two of master trainer Graeme Bate’s dogs trial the new track named after their owner at the redeveloped Beckley Centre.

Dual-track design delivers city a ‘world-first’ in greyhound racing he Beckley Centre’s new inner and outer tracks are a world first, according to redevelopment project manager Mark Dooley. “Greyhound trainers now have access to the best of both worlds with the inner circle track and the outer horseshoe track,” Mr Dooley says. Geelong’s strength as a greyhound centre prompted the sport’s governing body to invest in the world-first facility. The 18-month redevelopment of the Beckley Centre culminates in a grand opening starting 7pm this Friday with a twelve-race card. “The committee identified some years ago that there was no two-turn track or circle track

Beckley Centre set for ‘grand opening’ after $8.2m upgrade xcitement built this week as last-minute touches were added to a $8.2 million redevelopment of Corio’s Beckley Centre for its grand opening tonight. Geelong Greyhound Racing Club chairman Maurice Blair says he is praying for good weather to show off Geelong’s latest top-class venue, Beckley Centre. “A lot of faith has been shown in this redevelopment,” Mr Blair says “In fact, TAB SPORTSBET has agreed to become the major sponsor for the newly named Beckley Centre. “This substantial sponsorship shows that TAB, the major player in wagering in Victoria, has the faith in the industry and in the Geelong region to make this investment. “We now have training facilities that are second to none coupled with plenty of parking and great kitchen facilities.” Mr Blair says Beckley Centre will be perfect for conferences, weddings and trade displays, adding an economic impact to the region. More than 200 VIP invitations had been sent for the grand opening, he said. “We’re expecting a great turnout.” Mr Blair says the facility has already been through

Beckley Centre’s new grandstand takes pride of place in the redevelopment. a dry run to ensure any potential teething problems are ironed out. The facility would be used for three race meetings a week. “We will be catering for other tracks as they are redeveloped, in addition to our regular Friday night and Monday daytime meetings.” Mr Blair says the new facility has already received interstate and international attention, with visitors inspecting the design and facilities.

Two of master trainer Graeme Bate’s dogs trial the new track named after their owner at the redeveloped Beckley Centre.

Dual-track design delivers city a ‘world-first’ in greyhound racing he Beckley Centre’s new inner and outer tracks are a world first, according to redevelopment project manager Mark Dooley. “Greyhound trainers now have access to the best of both worlds with the inner circle track and the outer horseshoe track,” Mr Dooley says. Geelong’s strength as a greyhound centre prompted the sport’s governing body to invest in the world-first facility. The 18-month redevelopment of the Beckley Centre culminates in a grand opening starting 7pm this Friday with a twelve-race card. “The committee identified some years ago that there was no two-turn track or circle track

Country girls BY ERIN PEARSON COUNTRY music has shed its daggy image, according to the McClymont sisters. “We’re not the typical cowboyhat-and-cowboy-boots kind of girls,” laughed guitarist and singer Mollie. “Country music is far more fashionable these days. There isn’t always so much twang and dagginess any more.” After rising to fame in recent years, The McClymonts have dominated Australia’s country music scene ever since. Their accolades have included winning Golden Guitars three years in a row at Australia’s Country Music Awards. In January last year they released their second album, Wrapped Up Good, which went gold in 10 weeks. The McClymonts finished second for the year to Susan Boyle on the ARIA charts. Mollie said performers such as Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Kasey Chambers, had helped country music cross over to mainstream radio. The McClymonts had simply ridden the transition, she said. “We’re just following really,” Mollie admitted. “We’re so lucky that people with all different music tastes are appreciating and buying country music now.”

Singin’ sisters: The McClymonts are in town. Singing began as a hobby for Mollie and her sisters Brooke and Samantha. But after “years” on the talent quest circuit, Brooke earned the attention of music producers who inspired her two siblings to join her in the industry. “When Brooke was signed with Universal Music at 17 we thought ‘Oh my gosh, this could a career’,” Mollie laughed. “We always had small jobs. Brooke worked at Donut King for a bit, I worked at KFC and Myer and Sam at a bakery but we always knew we wanted to sing

“It’s the best job in the world. We get to do something different every day; video clips, interviews, television shows.” Mollie said the sisters would travel to the US in June for five months of song writing and extensive touring. “We’re really excited to do the third album and we’ll also be performing over 40 gigs while we do it. “Country music is huge in America, it’s the biggest genre. “They love our accents, too.” The McClymonts will perform at Geelong’s Costa Hall this Friday night.

els, two petrol, two diesel, with choices of five-speed or six-speed manual transmission, or six -speed or sevenspeed dual-clutch (DSG) automatics, depending on model. The 103 kilowatt engine reaches its maximum torque at 1750 rpm and remains on that peak until it gradually drops off from 2500 revs onwards. This lets the VW DSG gearbox stay in high ratios for longer than average periods, thus reducing fuel consumption and emissions. The engine’s consumption in the six to seven litres per hundred kilometres range on motorways, with figures in the fives being there if you’re willing to put a bit of extra effort into your throttle control. Around town the turbo-diesel engine was typically running in the seven to eight litres per hundred range. There’s some turbo lag but that’s a problem only when you’re not able to anticipate the need for more power. Handling is neutral until you are going pretty hard, when gentle understeer lets you know you are getting too enthusiastic. And at the same time scrubs speed back to sensible levels.

BY ERIC BLAIR he Volkswagen Golf Estate wagon is an impressive people mover and/or load hauler that combines practicality with a style that you don’t normally get in this type of vehicle. It also comes with many thoughtful design touches, plenty of clever German engineering and that solid VW feel that makes for robust reliability. From the front windscreen forward the Golf Estate wagon is the same as the VW Golf 6 hatchback that was launched in Australia in February 2009. This model has gone on win several best car awards, including the prestigious Wheels magazine 2010 Car of the Year gong. However, when you open the rear tailgate of the new wagon and start folding seats, the real appeal of the new Volkswagen Golf Estate emerges in detail. When you want to increase luggage space, the rear seat squabs fold against the back of the front seats to increase safety because objects can’t slide forward easily during hard braking or in a crash. The rear seatback folds all the way down, to give a completely flat luggage area. With the rear seats folded, the length of the rear load area is a vey handy 1700 mm; width is 1292 mm, height 832 mm. That latter figure for height is interesting as internal height can be a problem in some wagons. But, as an example the Golf’s load area lets you transport a 42-inch flat screen TV with the box carried upright to reduce the chance of damage to the screen. The Golf Estate comes in four mod-

he term â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hot rodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was first used on the dry lakebeds of southern California in the late 1930s where young men would race their modified cars. Following the Second World War, young returned soldiers with newly acquired technical and mechanical skills continued modifying old cars mostly Ford Model Ts, Model As and Bs. The craze took off across the United States and young drivers were modifying the old cars that were cheap to buy and easy to modify. The cars were stripped of all unnecessary items to decrease weight and more powerful engines were dropped in. Bigger wheels and tyres were added to improve traction and the street rod culture was born. The quintessential rod was the T-Bucket, a greatly modified Model T Ford. In the late 1950s, rock and roll music and street rods became the young peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s culture. In Australia, the popularity of modifieds grew with American television featuring the southern Californian cars. Street Rodders were considered a wild bunch by 1950s standards. This new sub culture saw young men with their hair piled high to look like James Dean. They wore skin-tight pants, pointy shoes, satin shirts and big American college-style cardigans or leather jackets. They called them Bodgies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; their women were dubbed Widgies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a term only ever used in Australia.

Geelong signwriter Greg Morrissey, although too young to have been a Bodgy, developed an interest in modified cars from an early age. He started with a modified 1934 Ford Sedan. In 1973, more than 20 enthusiasts from Geelong turned up at the first Nationals at Narrandera, NSW. It was then decided to bring all the Geelong guys together in a club. The Geelong Rod and Custom Club was officially formed in May of that year at Dave Griffinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Panel Beating shop in Station Street Norlane. The club name was later changed to Geelong Street Rodders. Greg joined the club and started going to hot rod events around Australia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because I was going to all sorts of different hot rod events all over the country, a mate of mine asked me to try and sell his 1932 Ford Tourer for him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had the car for about sixmonths and I took it to some hot rod events,â&#x20AC;? Greg said. He said he got to like the car and he ended up buying it himself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was 15 years ago, I bought it as a going car. I already had another car, a 1934 Ford sedan.â&#x20AC;? Greg decided in 2003 the Ford tourer needed a spruce up. He put in a new roof, redid the upholstery and gave it a new paint job. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also had the motor rebuilt. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a 351 Ford Windsor small block engine and a Ford C4 auto transmission,â&#x20AC;? Greg said.

Waneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wheels GREG WANE Greg is now the president of the Geelong Street Rodders club and later this month his club will host the 20th Australian Street Rod Nationals at Geelong Showgrounds. He said the committee had so far received more than 1200 hot rod entries from every state in Australia for the Easter weekend event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The entries include a contingent of 50 cars from Western Australia that will head across the Nullarbor to Geelong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The public days are Saturday 23 and Sunday 24. We are expecting a large crowd to see the big show and shine event on the showgrounds arena. Some of the best rods and customs in Australia will be here in Geelong,â&#x20AC;? Greg said.

Driving ease is achived with the C4 auto transmission.
