YOUR GUIDE TO PROPERTY, NEW HOMES INSIDE TODAY Study â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;reveals links to Chinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; BY KIM WATERS THE RESEARCH of a Queenscliff resident has uncovered the influence of Chinese immigrants on the town and its fishing industry. Former state MP Richard de Fegely said he found that the food preserving and boat building skills of Chinese immigrants had a lasting impact on Queencliff in the 1860s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were largely into drying fish very early on and this was important because dry ice wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet available. The immigrants would dry out the fish and then take it to Melbourne or to the goldfields,â&#x20AC;? Mr de Fegely said. The Chinese influence extended into Queenscliffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s historic couta boat fleet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of their methods of boat building were adapted in the early days and included in the old couta boats,â&#x20AC;? Mr de Fegely said. An influx of Chinese immigrants arrived in Australia in the 1850s as they fled a â&#x20AC;&#x153;devastatingâ&#x20AC;? opium war in their homeland, he said. Many of the Chinese eventually made their way to Victorian goldfields. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I assume that when the goldfields started drying up a few of them drifted down to the Bellarine Peninsula but there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a lot of research on it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a census in the late 1860s and early 1870s but there were only a handful of Chinese names on it. I expect they were a bit shy about getting involved with government knowledge.â&#x20AC;? Mr de Fegely said spreading knowledge of the peninsulaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s multi-racial roots was important, particularly with growing trade links between Australia and China.

Horse ban bid anger BY KIM WATERS HORSE riders fear â&#x20AC;&#x153;ludicrousâ&#x20AC;? environmental regulations will fence them out of the Bellarine Peninsula, according to a Drysdale Pony Club representative. Cheryl Hardy labelled Geelong Environment Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposed bans on riding â&#x20AC;&#x153;ridiculously, grossly unfairâ&#x20AC;?. The environment council left virtually â&#x20AC;&#x153;no area at allâ&#x20AC;? for horse

enthusiasts, Ms Hardy said. The environment council proposed bans on riding along vegetated roadsides and along the Bellarine Rail Trail in a proposal to City of Greater Geelong. Ms Hardy said Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s council was trying to promote riding and horse-related businesses on the peninsula. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They say there are great facilities but basically the only place you can ride now is at pony club

and if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an event on and you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t part of it then even that facility canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be used.â&#x20AC;? Ms Hardy slammed the environment councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s argument for the protection of â&#x20AC;&#x153;remnant vegetationâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m getting so over this remnant vegetation thing,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the roadside where my family rides is just natural grasses and there are a lot of plain old weeds that the council hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

bothered to clean up.â&#x20AC;? Ms Hardy also attacked the environment councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s push to ban riders from the rail trail. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people use that trail because many canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to buy land with enough room to ride their horses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see why there canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be two separate trails for bikes and horses because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty of room for a second one.â&#x20AC;?

Ms Lindros said the environment council was awaiting a response on its submission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The submission suggested that vegetated roadsides, unused roads containing remnant vegetation and the rail trail are not suitable for horses. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I understand horse riding is really popular and we arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t criticising riders but we do need to be careful with our remnant roadside vegetation.â&#x20AC;?

president Joan Lindros believed that horses sharing trails with walkers and cyclists was â&#x20AC;&#x153;inappropriateâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can be dangerous and unsafe and we think the problem of trains spooking the horses could result in accidents,â&#x20AC;? Ms Lindros said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There has been a lot of voluntary work gone into revegetating the rail trail and horses without a doubt will trample that vegetation.â&#x20AC;?

As part of ongoing emergency preparedness, Emergency Alert, the telephone based emergency warning system will be tested in the Surf Coast Shire over the 24 – 26 October 2010. The telephone warning system alerts communities to emergencies via: • a recorded voice message on landline telephones based on the location of the handset, and • a text message on mobiles, based on the service address of the phone. As this is only a test of the system, no action is required. You may be contacted in the weeks following the testing to participate in a survey and provide feedback. The system provides emergency service organisations with another way to warn communities in the event of an emergency. You should never rely on a telephone warning to act. It is crucial that communities do not call 000 for information. Only call 000 if you are in immediate need of emergency services (police, fire or ambulance). For further information on the testing visit www.emergencyalert.gov.au

BY KIM WATERS GEELONG Cup Fashions on the Field entrants sparkled as brightly as the clear blue sky on Wednesday with a sea of vibrant dresses, glamorous headpieces and fashionable accessories. Bright colours, short dresses and smaller headpieces were the theme of this year’s fashions, with pinks, purples and reds popular on the catwalk. MC Paula Kontelj said a record field of entries demonstrated Geelong women’s dedication to style. “We have 95 entrants in today’s Fashions on the Field, which is an indication of how beautifully we dress here in Geelong,” Ms Kontelj told onlookers. “The calibre of entrants this year has been really high.”

in brief

2010 Geelong Cup

18,000 punters flock to our ‘best ever cup’ BY ANDREW MATHIESON WEDNESDAY’S Geelong Cup was the “best ever”, according to excited racing club officials. One the cup’s biggest crowds saw a French galloper fight his way back before the home turn to launch a dramatic run to pinch the Geelong Cup over 2406 metres. Geelong Racing Club’s John Dunne said the final dash capped off the day. “The atmosphere has been the best ever that I can remember,” he said. “Even the quality of the field in the cup is also the best we have seen in a long while, maybe ever.” Mr Dunne said a “huge crowd” contributed to the day’s success. He estimated more than 18,000 patrons attended. “It’s just getting better every year,” Mr Dunne said. “The combination of the good weather and the good cup field is probably why we had such a huge crowd. It’s up on previous years by a couple of thousand at least.” Mr Dunne said marquees were booked out a fortnight ago and “booking out earlier each year”. He believed the Geelong Cup had given the Spring Racing Carnival a timely boost. Caulfield Cup battled against inclement weather on Saturday, attracting a crowd only half the size officials had predicted. In the 128th Geelong Cup, Americain and Moudre battled the final metres before Americain won on the line in 2:30.35. With 200 metres remaining, Moudre looked to be in the winning position. But after Americain was initially shuffled out in the straight, the French top weight edged a passage back through to the inside rail.

Cancer boost HIGH-tech new equipment will help save the lives of cancer sufferers in Geelong, according to state Health Minister Daniel Andrews. He officially opened Geelong Hospital’s $1.5 million positron emission tomography facility, saying it would also help Andrew Love Cancer Centre participate in international clinical trials of new treatments. A COALITION state government would give Barwon Rowing Club $250,000 to fit out its new clubrooms, according to Liberal candidate for Geelong Alastair Thomson. Mr Thomson said the funding would help the club continue its “great work training the next generation of the region’s rowers”.

Carbon cash STATE Government will give City of Greater Geelong $300,000 to become “Australia’s low-carbon leader”, South Barwon MP Michael Crutchfield has announced. He said the City would use the money to produce an “Australian-first regional blueprint” for cutting carbon dioxide emissions and building a “low-carbon economy”.

GEELONG’S unemployment rate has risen 10 per cent in the past 12 months, according to new Commonwealth figures. The state opposition released the figures this week, showing unemployment in the greater Geelong area had risen from 4.0 to 4.4 per cent, with Corio at 9.2 per cent.

COUNCILS in the Geelong region have welcomed $3.3 million in pre-election funding pledges from the Brumby Government. But councils alliance body G21 hoped to see “further” commitments after releasing a $1 billion wishlist last week.

Authorised by T. Nutt, 104 Exhibition St, Melbourne.

BY ANDREW MATHIESON AVALON Airport plans to increase flights from seven to possibly 30 in “the next few years” under a plan to stem falling passengers numbers, according to general manager Justin Giddings. Mr Giddings released the target after revealing passenger numbers were “significantly down” in the past 12 months. “We’re hopeful that from November 10 we’ll start picking straight back up when Tiger Airways comes in (to Avalon),” he said. Mr Giddings blamed the drop on budget airline Jetstar’s decision to reduce flights at Avalon while increasing operations at rival Melbourne Airport. Tiger is scheduled to introduce seven new daily flights next month. The airport has battled Federal Government redtape over plans for more terminals including an international facility. Melbourne Airport this week announced its passenger numbers were up 11.8 per cent, including a 15.7 per cent rise in international travellers. Launceston Airport – comparable in size to Avalon – reported “steady” passenger growth of 1 per cent to 268,000 passengers.

Developed by Scienceworks, Melbourne and Scitech, Perth.

DEATHS on roads around Geelong have increased 100 per cent in 12 months, according to TAC figures. The TAC’s road safety statistical summary for the year to August reported 14 fatalities compared to seven for the previous period, while Surf Coast deaths were up 50 per cent from two to three.

ABC focus on life PIONEER END OF SEASON or death decisions

ORCHID FARM

“You never want to lose people you love but you don’t want to see them go through terrible things,” he said. “Because I see so many families in absolute agony, torn about what to do when this confronts them, my feeling is perhaps [technology’s] gone too far.” Dr Corke believed families should discuss potential scenarios to ensure they were clear about when to turn off life-support machines. “In the 20 years I’ve been doing this the advances in medical technologies have been just huge and it’s amazing what we can do now. Technology is wonderful when it’s used right

but you can use everything at the wrong time in the wrong way. “Where families go on too long, the process moves from being a hopeful one to a rather dreadful one.” An ABC crew filmed the documentary over five years in the hospital’s intensive care unit under director Charlottee Roseby who worked in collaboration with Dr Corke and other hospital staff. Dr Corke contacted Ms Roseby with the proposal after watching “too many” families agonising over dying patients. “I originally saw a program that the film director had made

about a boy with cystic fibrosis and it was a very sensitively told story,” he said. “I felt this was a director who could tell the story of the difficulty I saw every day in the hospital.” Barwon Health chief executive officer David Ashbridge said In The End would give viewers an “honest insight” into the intensive care unit. “The compassion and commitment of all staff at Geelong Hospital is something we are very proud to showcase,” he said. “Hopefully this film will start conversations around Australia.” ABC1’s Compass will broadcast In the End on October 31.

BY ERIN PEARSON AN ABC documentary filmed in Geelong Hospital will show how “overuse” of modern technology is extending the trauma of death for dying patients and their families, according to a specialist doctor. Intenstive care specialist Dr Charlie Corke hoped In the End would initiate national discussion about the use of machines to keep patients alive when death was inevitable. Dr Corke, who has worked at Geelong Hospital for over 20 years, believed some use of modern life-support technology was “unnecessary”.

Radio buffs ham it up to win back internet generation Looking for Bily? â&#x20AC;Śsheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back! cate by radio. The youngest registered Geelong amateur operator was just 14 but most were aged 50 to 70, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a couple of school groups weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been tutoring over the past three or four years and it has been quite successful. A lot of those kids have got our amateur foundation licence.â&#x20AC;? Celebrating 100 years of involvement in amateur radio this week, Mr Strickland said the society was offering the chance for the public to communicate with international operators on a special radio call sign until Monday. A radio museum at old Geelong Gaol would also excite history buffs during the centenary celebrations. Mr Strickland said Geelong Radio and Electronics Society would be open from 10am to 5pm until Monday during the celebrations at 237A High Street, Belmont.

Looking forward to seeing both new and familiar faces!

BY ANDREW MATHIESON GEELONG radio operators are hamming up communication to win back a younger generation from the internet. While seasoned ham radio enthusiasts palpitate over a crackly voice bouncing off transmitters from distant places, contemporary communicators prefer a few quick mouse clicks into cyberspace. But Geelong Radio and Electronics Society secretary Keith Strickland said amateur radio could co-exist with the internet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve now got radio facilities we can use over the internet,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can get on the internet here with my radio, go through a beacon and that beacon will send my transmission via the internet to someone in England or America, anywhere.â&#x20AC;? However, Mr Strickland conceded the internet had turned most youths off learning to communi-

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hoaxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on bypass Around 100 residents rallied on Sunday to oppose the 4C link after Liberal South Barwon candidate and Geelong councillor Andrew Katos revealed the coalition promises in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Independent. Mr Crutchfield, who failed to attend the rally, said a coalition government would never deliver a new 4C route. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr Katos has voted for this alignment three times on council and has put forward no motion to change councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s viewpoint,â&#x20AC;? Mr Crutchfield said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The decision was made back in 2008 and the state

Liberal party and the federal candidate supported this alignment, so no one is saying we should change it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The current alignment isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just about the road but also this major (railway) station and people will be very unimpressed with Mr Katos if he defers the building of this infrastructure.â&#x20AC;? State Government approved the $76.9 million link to Surf Coast Highway this month. Residents of Grovedale and Waurn Ponds have opposed the route, running along a rail line neighbouring both suburbs, over noise and traffic concerns.

Mr Katos told the Independent last week that moving the route was â&#x20AC;&#x153;a possibilityâ&#x20AC;? but that his main focus was on residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerns about the consultation process. South Grovedale Community Action Group spokesperson Margarita Kumnik said the public rally was â&#x20AC;&#x153;very successfulâ&#x20AC;?. Eighty residents promised to change their election vote over the route, she said. The group would run a second rally and shopping centre stalls every Saturday until the election.

423352-FB21-9

BY KIM WATERS A PROMISE to review a controversial bypass link route south of Geelong if the coalition wins next monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s state election is a â&#x20AC;&#x153;cruel hoaxâ&#x20AC;?, according to an MP. Labor Member for South Barwon Michael Crutchfield called the coalitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pledge â&#x20AC;&#x153;utter madnessâ&#x20AC;?. The partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s further promise to review consultation processes over the 4C link route would also delay development of â&#x20AC;&#x153;important infrastructureâ&#x20AC;? including a Waurn Ponds train station, he warned.

The men will act as ambassadors for White Ribbon Day, which started in Canada in 1991 to oppose violence against women. Cr Mitchell said violence against women was still a scourge on society. “I urge anyone passionate about this issue to become an ambassador and make it clear violence will not be tolerated.” Cr Mitchell said more information about the campaign was available at www.whiteribbonday.org.au.

Ms Taylor said thousands of potential patrons had stayed away despite the show expanding its schedule in recent years. “Because it rained all day Friday we took a big loss at the gate that day. We had a great day on Thursday and Saturday was a fairly good day considering but it wasn’t near the numbers of last year. “It rained basically until two o’clock and then Sunday it was drizzly in the morning, so we were down then slightly, too.” Ms Taylor said the rain forced cancellation of entertainment in the main arena on Friday, with several “big trucks” unable to drive onto the arena’s surface. Toyota Hilux Heroes stunt drivers completed two shows late Saturday “once the arena dried out”. “They got bogged three times still,” Mrs Taylor said. “(The conditions) cut down on what they could do and they couldn’t do any of their jumps or get up on two wheels.” Mrs Taylor remained optimistic the show would return bigger and better next year to recover financially. “We’re resilient. We’ve been here 155 years, so we’re certainly not going to roll over.”

MICROCHIPPING AND REGISTRATION ROADSHOW

BY ANDREW MATHIESON THIS year’s Royal Geelong Show lost almost $100,000 after three days of rain washed away crowds, according to organisers. Show chief Sharolyn Taylor warned entry prices might rise next year to cover the loss, while planned improvements at the showgrounds were now on hold. The shortfall in gate takings combined with State Government’s abolition last year of a public holiday in Geelong for show day to hurt the historic event’s viability, she said. “That (loss of a public holiday) alone hurt us by about $45,000, so this year it’s a lot worse.” Ms Taylor said the show’s bottom line copped a “really big hit compared to other years” amid “torrential” rain. Royal Geelong Agricultural and Pastoral Society had postponed its plans to building a new toilet block with showers and to rid the show of its muddy car parks. The society was reluctant to put up entry prices, Ms Taylor said. “We’re trying to keep the prices as low as we can. We worked out that the last wet show we had was in 1995 but obviously things have gone up a lot since then.”

Bottled history set to go on display

Name ‘hijack’ Bottler: David Smith with part of his collection ahead of this weekend’s show. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 55128 regarded themselves as “caretakers of history”. But like most artefacts, bottles were becoming harder to find, he lamented. The days of fossicking rubbish tips or even digging up grandpa’s backyard for a rare find had

nearly gone the way of, well, glass bottles themselves. “All the bottles that were easily dug up are gone,” David lamented. “There are more collectors but only the same amount of old bottles.”

BY KIM WATERS A STATE Government competition to rename Barwon Heads Bridges has enraged residents, according to community leaders. Barwon Heads Traders Association president Hamish Lonsdale labelled the competition a “political hijack” that had sparked a “flurry of phone calls” from angry residents. Roads and Ports Minister Tim Pallas announced the competition this week as part of Government plans to open the bridge a week before next month’s state election. Mr Lonsdale said a bridge stakeholder liaison committee of community leaders, VicRoads, City of Greater Geelong and

Barwon Coast representatives only heard about the competition last week. “We were basically just expected to rubber-stamp the idea on the spot,” he said. “The community leaders felt that it was inappropriate for a process like this to be politicised and suggested that it should be finalised after the election. “We all believed the suggestion was being considered and then we got a media release this week announcing the official naming and opening on November 20 instead of December 11, which is what we had fought for.” Mr Lonsdale said the Government’s competition had reopened “old wounds”.

A Baillieu-led Coalition Government is committed to recruiting 2640 new police and Police Protective Services Officers (PSOs) in its first term.

These two hour classes are sure to be the highlight of your child’s week. They will have loads of fun participating in fast paced improvisation games and recording scenes on camera. Whether your child is shy and wants to break out of their shell or is a ‘born performer’ and needs an outlet, the Mooregrace Program will ensure that they are given the opportunity to shine!

“The bridge issue has been the most divisive and bitter debate I can ever remember and it’s lasted for years,” he said. Mr Lonsdale questioned the Government’s timing for the official naming ceremony. “To hear they’ve made a decision to stick to their own timeframe and not consider ours flies in the face of community input.” South Barwon MP Michael Crutchfield said the liaison committee would shortlist entries. “We’d like to name the new road bridge something that honours the original Barwon Heads Bridge, while we’re calling on local school children to name the new pedestrian bridge to signify the future of the community,” he said.

This will include PSOs at every train station on the Geelong/Marshall line from 6pm, seven days a week.

During the first hour your child will be involved in theatre sports and fun improvisation activities. In the second hour it’s lights camera action, with students acting in front of the camera. All of your child’s work can be captured onto USB so that they can see themselves on the big screen at home! The Mooregrace Program is designed so that your child will:

The Coalition sees law and order as a priority and is committed to a ban on violent drunks from entering licensed premises, crush`e^ cars of repeat hoon drivers and abolishing suspended sentences.

BY ANDREW MATHIESON FOR Geelong’s most-avid bottle collectors, history is as clear as glass. Geelong Bottles and Collectables Club president David Smith is just one who can see right through to their value. “I was intrigued by them,” David said of discovering his passion for antique glass vessels. “They were made in an era when glass-making was an art, so the object itself was desirable. Some of the early jars were works of art; beautiful chunks of glass.” The club will display some of its finest bottles and collectables at Geelong Showgrounds on Saturday. As well as bottles dating back to the 1850s, the show will also feature collectables ranging from classic Matchbox toys through to antique rabbit traps. David said club members

State ‘coaching’ for failing parents STATE Government will provide “family coaches” in Geelong to train “vulnerable” parents on raising their children, Bellarine MP Lisa Neville has announced. Ms Neville, the state Community Services Minister, said the specialist coaches would work with parents for up to a year under a pilot Family Coaching Victoria program. The program would target 18 families in Geelong, the Bellarine Peninsula and the Surf Coast, she said. The aim was to teach parents how to provide children with “safe and loving” homes. “All parents love their children and want the best for them but the Brumby Labor Government understands that some families need extra support and assistance,” Ms Neville said. “This program will help them improve their parenting skills and experience so they can provide their children with everything they need to have a safe and happy childhood. Ms Neville was under fire this week after a report revealed a two-year-old girl was treated for taking ecstacy. Ms Neville’s staff had returned the toddler and her siblings to their Happy families: Lisa Neville launches the mother after failing to extend a court order that coaching program with children Tyler and they live with their grandmother.

Centre funds bid in ‘doubt’ BY KIM WATERS A $50 MILLION redevelopment of Geelong Library and Heritage Centre remains in doubt as election candidates hold back funding commitments ahead of next month’s state election. Labor Member for Geelong Ian Trezise and Liberal candidate Alastair Thomson both said they supported the project but were unable to confirm funding if their parties won on November 27. The Independent revealed earlier this month that Geelong’s council would withdraw its $20 million for the centre if state and

federal government failed to pay their shares. Mr Trezise said he could not promise funding “at this stage”. “I’m well and truly aware of the needs for the library and heritage centre, having visited there on numerous occasions. “Hopefully we’ll see some funding at the state election.” Mr Thomson “supported” the redevelopment but was also short of a funding commitment. “I understand that funding is crucial for these facilities that house Geelong’s historical and cultural heritage and allow for

greater learning opportunities within the region. A new facility would also bring more people into central Geelong. “I’ve raised this matter with (opposition leader) Ted Baillieu and the team but I’m not in a position to make any funding announcements now.” Councillor Barbara Abley warned time was running out for state and federal governments to make equal $15 million commitments. “We also need all the parties in the state election to show us their money.”

TOYNEY LAUNCHES GEELONG GOLF ACADEMY If you love golf and always trying to improve your game, Peter Toyne has the answer. The Geelong Golf Academy gives two young golfers an opportunity to further enhance ttheir game and pursue a career in the golf industry and be able to enjoy the game which has been such an intricate part of Peters life for more than 50 years The Geelo Geelong Golf Academy training will be delivered over a 12 month period, embracing young golfers between the ages of 14 – 21 in helping them develop their game. The progr program will deliver fortnightly coaching and mentoring from well known and respected golfing coach Mal Humphries, with coaching lessons being held on Geelong’s only indoor Golf Simulator at Peters store at 202 Moorabool Street Geelong. Peter bel believes his investment in having The PGA TOUR Simulator is the best place to practice and learn the game. The PGA TOUR Simulator comes equipped with the 3Trak tr tracking engine, the only tracking engine capable of producing data. 3Trak is the only simulator tracking to measure ball kinematics on every plane. It measures aall three dimensions of ball spin -- even the largely ignored third component, rifle spin. Direct measurement, using three-dimensional, high speed photography means there are no calculations and no assumptions about ball flight. A push slice is a push slice and a pull hook is a pull hook. This accurate feedback of data allows you to be even more precise in your analysis and subsequent instruction, as well as tracking of progress with students. Peter is very excited about being able to give back to the sport he loves by launching The Geelong Golf Academy. Application forms to be the inaugural students of the Geelong Golf Academy are available through the Geelong Independent or in store at Peter Toynes Clubhouse Golf. For further information on the Geelong Golf Academy contact Peter Toyne at Clubhouse Golf on 52291093.

Bright future: A young Arthur Reed starting out on his career.

than just palm trees and sandy beaches. His three-month breaks boating between the sundrenched islands is tempered by keeping tabs on the holiday resort he unintentionally built more than 30 years ago. “My staff think our family’s life is one long holiday,” Arthur laughs. “When we’re home the people in Fiji think we’re having a holiday in Australia and when we’re over there the people think we’re having a holiday in Fiji. “Really, to relax in Fiji we have to take off in the boat. We took our motor cruiser over to the island from Queenscliff in 1983 and we’ve still got it there.” An idyllic family holiday – the Reeds’ first in six years – to Fiji in 1973 started a love affair that has never abated. Arthur recalls discovering several uninhabited islands up for lease. After Arthur built traditional wood-and-straw bures on one of the islands to visit every year, the Fijian trust authorities later insisted the land was now up for commercial sale only. So the four huts became 10 and an island resort fit for a picture-perfect postcard was born. “We’ve had a lot of guests come back again and again,” Arthur boasts. “Some have accumulated 100 nights on the resort and one celebrated 200 nights recently. When that happens and people say it’s been great you do think all the hard work has been worth it. “And the same in the photo business – I’ve been getting cards saying congratulations on 50 years. I’ve even had people say ‘I was one of the first weddings you did’, so I can now look back and think it hasn’t been a bad effort.” The man synonymous with nearly every bounded set of Geelong school portraits over the past half a century admits he winged it during the early days as a professional photographer. “When I started I really had no idea, I have to admit, in setting out plans for the next five or 10 years, let alone 50,” Arthur sighs. After starting out in the industry selling equipment for Camera House, Arthur was sent out to snap photos at debutant and function balls in Geelong’s Palais Royal. After joining Geelong High School’s camera club a few years earlier, then-22-year-old Arthur decided to approach his old school with little more than a

basic 35mm camera, a few 36-exposure films and a little blackboard with chalk in hand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But if you got 500, 600 or even 800 people to photograph in a school, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an awful lot of 36exposure films,â&#x20AC;? he observes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a bit difficult loading up enough film all the time and having all this film to process.â&#x20AC;? So Arthur ordered the latest American camera, which took a 100-foot length of film and could shoot hundreds of students in one roll. He found that leaving the wet emulsion untouched while processing the film was the only stumbling block. To avoid making contact with the developing film, Arthur was forced to design what notoriously was known among peers as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;horizontal birdcageâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We made it from bits of wood, dowelling and plastic and experimented,â&#x20AC;? he remembers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were just being very practical and it worked well.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;In America they had automatic processing machines that simply clipped the film in and feed it through all the chemicals so it would come out the other end dry. But we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the wherewithal nor the volume to be able to support that sort of expenditure at first.â&#x20AC;?

No longer the businessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s photographer behind the lens, he strokes his beard when pondering the number of photos snapped. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Personally, I guess there would be hundreds of thousands Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done alone,â&#x20AC;? he calculates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over the years weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done millions and millions because the company takes nearly 300,000 photographs a year.â&#x20AC;?

Contours staff seek donations to help disadvantaged women overseas through Project Uplift.

Donations can simply be dropped into the big, pink washing baskets at Contours East Geelong (Newcomb) or Contours Geelong West (Manifold Heights). Every donation earns the chance to enter a draw for one of two prize packs, each of which comprises a $150 Bras and Things voucher and a 12-month Contours membership. People on their way to Contours should ask every woman they know to donate to Project Uplift.

The project is a great way to contribute to charity while making a difference to the lives of women in Africa at the cost of just an unwanted bra and a little time. Donate to Project Uplift until the end of the month at: Contours East Geelong, corner Bellarine Highway and Wilsons Road, phone 5248 5545; or Contours Geelong West, 2/131 Shannon Avenue, Manifold Heights, phone 5229 8335. 486546-JL42-10

too. During October the team at Contours Geelong is committed to collecting 1000 used and unwanted bras for African women in need. The simple donations can help save African women from abuse and health issues related to going without bras in hot tropical climates. Donated bras have been pouring through the doors of Contours but many of its members friends, neighbours and family members have yet to clean out their drawers. Every woman in the region probably has at least one unwanted bra sitting at the bottom of a drawer which could really make a difference in someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. Contours is asking members and Independent readers to spread the word of how easy it is to donate to Project Uplift.

Here’s what you’ve said about NIB’s takeover offer. “Part of our reasoning to recently join your health fund was you are local in Geelong and support the community; also I am sick of talking to faceless people at a help desk.“

Janet & Douglas Lee GMHBA members

“I would just like to say that I fully support the board’s decision to reject NIB’s bid. $1500 is nothing compared to what premiums would increase by over time, and the service would go through the floor. Keep up the good work!“

Troy Reeves GMHBA member

“We left NIB to come to GMHBA. NIB’s rates are higher and their refunds were lower...”

Ian Mitchell GMHBA member

“In case GMHBA agrees to be taken over by NIB I will definitely change my insurance and buy private health insurance from another provider. Therefore, I’d like to ask you to reject the takeover offer from NIB and continue to look after the interest of your members and provide the best health insurance at low prices.”

Erin Robbins GMHBA member

Mike Vernon GMHBA member

“I strongly oppose the proposed NIB takeover! I agree with the directors entirely!“

Paul Garde GMHBA member

Andreas Rosenau GMHBA member

“I am having no part of NIB’s takeover “merger” bid. GMHBA has been an institution in this city for a long time. It has always looked after me in times of sickness, when I needed it. We are very parochial in this town. We support our footy team and we support our businesses. We don’t need a NSW company to take us over. STAND STRONG GMHBA.”

“The reason we joined was because it was not-forprofit, it’s based in Geelong and the prices are greatly competitive...The fact I can easily access a branch is also a great positive as well as the fabulous customer service I have experienced.... My belief is the board have made the right decision with rejecting the offer from NIB and have mine and my husband’s support as members - we want GMHBA to continue to grow and remain one of the better Health Insurance Companies in Australia.“

“I would like to commend senior management for their stand against the NIB attempted takeover. The reason I am a member of GMHBA is because it is a mutual - as well as the great products and service.”

David Hocking GMHBA member

“Should NIB succeed with their takeover, I will be moving my business to a different insurer.”

Dara Conlan GMHBA member

“Don’t give way. I used to belong to NIB. I want to remain a member of a fine mutual organisation.”

Alan Reddrop GMHBA member

We think you’re right.

buckets & bouquets BUCKETS to Geelong’s council. It’s a pity Breakwater’s Leather Street wasn’t part of the cycling course because all the potholes surely would have been fixed straight away. Concerned Resident, St Albans Park BOUQUETS to the person who found my greyhound wandering South Geelong. Bouquets also to the people with whom I spoke in the middle of the night, asking whether they had seen my dog. They were very kind. Bouquets to the team at Geelong Animal Welfare Society for looking after Jedda. Rachel, Geelong BUCKETS to Thought Balloons Not Rubber Balloons (Buckets and Bouquets, October 15). As someone who has released a balloon in memory of a loved one, I found your righteous moralising highly offensive and hurtful. I’d be happy to release a balloon for you. Still Mourning, Portarlington BUCKETS to a check-out girl at Corio, who needs to learn some manners. We were not interested in your night of drink. To be told I should not listen while you ignored customers was disgraceful. People like you give Corio a bad name. Bad Attitude, Corio BOUQUETS to Kevin and the team at S and K Carpentry, whose skills were spectacular. I would recommend them to anyone. Extremely Satisfied, Geelong West

They couldn’t have cared less that we were right behind them. The young louts looked to have been drinking. By the way, nice baseball caps, losers. Disgusted, Torquay

EPA to ‘work with shire’ on Bells BY ERIN PEARSON VICTORIA’S Environmental Protection Authority will “work with” Surf Coast Shire on a toilet block blamed for sewage spills at Bells Beach, according to a spokesperson. However, the authority refused to reveal whether its tests at Bells confirmed independent research showing dangerously high levels of E coli in the surfing reserve. “EPA is satisfied from looking

at the data there is no imminent environmental risk,” the spokesperson said. “We will continue to monitor the area and work with Surf Coast Shire who have plans to upgrade the facility.” The EPA tests followed surfing legend and ex-Bells Beach Advisory Committee member Maurice Cole commissioning the independent testing of “black sludge” spreading at Bells. ALS Environmental Water

WOULD YOU PLEASE BE KIND ENOUGH TO HELP OUR HOMELESS PEOPLE FURTHER BY DONATING AT ANY COMMONWEALTH BANK YOU WOULD BE DOING A WONDERFUL, KIND, CARING AND COMPASSIONATE THING

Resources Group, which carried out Mr Cole’s tests, confirmed the area was contaminated with “faecal matter”. “These results are beyond what we normally test for and are of concern,” an ALS spokesperson said. “It only takes a couple of E coli to cause an infection if you get it into an open wound.” The spokesperson said the ALS tests found E coli up to 12 times higher than natural levels.

letters Parallel interests AS VICE-PRESIDENT of Parallel Sports, a volunteer support group in Geelong assisting people with physical disabilities to access and participate in sport and recreational activities, I present the following in support of Barwon Rowing Club. Our members have greatly benefited from their participation in partnership programs with Barwon Rowing Club. The club’s programs have developed to expand the opportunities of people with physical disabilities to participate at all levels. Over the past five years Barwon Rowing Club has provided equipment and coaching at no cost to members with disabilities, providing a valuable community benefit to all involved. Following the successful involvement of our members, we are looking to strengthen our partnership and to purchase an adaptive boat, providing a pathway from participation and social inclusion at club level to possible participation at the paralympics. With the rebuilding of the club’s shed and facilities, ongoing inclusion of people with physical disabilities will be further facilitated by much-improved facilities that provide improved access for all. As a small, local volunteer group, we view the redevelopment of Barwon Rowing Club facilities as an enormous positive asset in providing an ongoing well-being benefit to the wider community. We call on local politicians to consider providing the club with urgently needed financial support. Kaye Colman Parallel Sports

Splashing out VICTORIANS swim for different reasons but the most important reason for swimming is survival. VICSWIM’s Summer Kidz program is an established, recognised and respected drowning-prevention program on which the Brumby Government has turned its back. Last year the summer program taught 3800 children to swim but at their peak VICSWIM programs taught vital water survival skills to up to 20,000 children. The summer program will cease in January because John Brumby won’t boost funding. In government, the Victorian Liberal Nationals Coalition would put $1.6 million back into VICSWIM Summer Kids. We will subsidise the cost to make it more affordable and therefore more accessible to families who would not otherwise have access to swimming lessons. Many families access independent swim schools

Have our fish found out they can get onto easy street by swimming off to new areas or are they being forced to move to new territory that is within their thermal tolerance range? You can find the answers on the CSIRO website at http://www.csiro.au/news/Climate-Change-HitsFish.html where real scientists document drastic changes in fish numbers and distribution due to increasing water temperatures. Do we have the right to drive fish, along with ourselves, toward extinction just to prop up our outdated oil economy? We know there is a better way and it requires a healthy, positive change to a low-carbon economy. Stuart McCallum Bannockburn

MP’s serving of mammon with gravy HAS IT taken an impending state election and the prospect of receiving up to $65,000 a year taxfree to entice South Barwon MP Michael Crutchfield to join GMHBA (Independent, October 8). Is this a case of Mr Crutchfield jumping on the gravy train yet again? And there I was starting to like him. If NIB buys GMHBA, would it mean collusion? Would our footy club gain through added sponsorship? What would it do for me, a loyal GMHBA member for 50 years? Would I get enhanced benefits? It is clear to me that among

some, the worship of mammon is more important than the heritage of loyalty. Sandra Camm Highton MICHAEL Crutchfield’s election advertising boasts of “building the Geelong ring road, including a new section from Anglesea Road to the Surf Coast Highway”. Would that be section 4C, the polluting, noisy, dangerous, white elephant road to nowhere? The $77 million would be better spent on mental health and homelessness. Lee Gladwell Grovedale

for lessons and we commend that but VICSWIM Summer Kidz is a particularly important program for rural and regional children without immediate access to swim instructors. Regional and rural families rely on week-long, intensive courses at local beaches and rivers or the closest public pool during summer holidays because term-based lessons aren’t always an option. Last year 38 people drowned in Victoria. For every drowning there is an average of two non-fatal drowning incidents. If we want to reduce tragic, unnecessary drownings we must invest in aquatic-based learning for youngsters. We don’t have to re-invent the wheel, we just need to revive a legacy that has taught thousands of Victorians how to swim. Ted Baillieu Victorian Liberal Nationals Coalition leader

Get serious on CO2 IT IS true that, according to Gordon Alderson, scientific theories cannot be “proven” (Letters, October 8). No one will ever be able to prove absolutely that global warming is human-induced. By the same token, it cannot be proven that humans have not caused global warming. Make no mistake, however, that the scientific evidence is overwhelming that climate change is real. Information gathered across the globe strongly indicates we must act to mitigate this even more strongly than we have. It is insulting in the extreme to those thousands of

Phantom menace Under fire: Michael Crutchfield

experts who have worked tirelessly for decades in the climate field that Mr Alderson would consider the mountains of high-quality scientific evidence are simply “populist”. Finally, it is understood by industry that to not have a price on carbon is actually responsible for recent electricity price increases due to uncertainty in the market. A carbon price that is certain will open the door to significant investment in solar energy and other alternatives. I applaud Labor, the independents and Greens for finally having the guts to look at a carbon price seriously. We must grasp this opportunity quickly so as not to fall behind more-advanced nations. Leigh Adamson Belmont

Fishy on facts I THANK climate change deniers for some very funny reading (Letters, October 8). You have to wonder what sort of science education they received to be so limited in their views. They cling to outdated and simplistic pseudo-science about how great carbon dioxide is for us without any grasp of the physics and chemistry involved in the atmosphere or the ocean and the impact that even subtle changes can have on pH and temperature regimes. I wonder whether they suspecte Australia’s fish populations of also being in on the grant-grabbing scams of which they accuse climate scientists.

IS PREMIER John Brumby nuts? With Victoria’s population soaring by over 50,000 a year over and above the natural increase, how sensible it is to phase out Hazelwood power station? If a Martian was to visit this state and observe the obsession to replace coal-fired power generation with unreliable and expensive renewables he would be right to conclude we have gone completely, stark raving mad. This State Government has really lost the plot. It refuses to consider the only viable alternative to coal-fired generation, nuclear power, and instead prefers the Noddyland solution of wind, solar and geo-thermal power. Hazelwood is in reality clean because 97 per cent of pollutants are removed prior to being released into the atmosphere. Carbon dioxide is not a pollutant. It is necessary for all plant, animal and human life. Climate change scientists Professors Richard Lindzen, Bob Carter and Ian Plimer all say anthropogenic CO2 emissions pose no problem to the environment. There is no reason to be concerned about CO2 emissions. Spending billions of dollars on a problem that can’t be proven and which relies on speculative computer modelling is grossly irresponsible. Premier Brumby should stop wasting our money on a phantom menace. Alan Barron DLP candidate for South Barwon

Still Meanies in middle-age BY ERIN PEARSON FANS can expect “more forethought” from ‘90s punk rock band The Meanies at this year’s Queenscliff Music Festival, according to vocalist Lincoln ‘Link’ McLennon. “We definitely perform a lot better than we used to,” he laughed down the telephone line to the Independent. “Performing hurts a lot more but there’s certainly not as much blood.” The Meanies is among a swag of bands recently announced to perform at this year’s Queenscliff festival. Link will join Mark Hobbs and Roderick Kempton on stage in the latest incarnation of The Meanies following the death of guitarist Tas Blizzard two years ago. The Point Londale musician died in a car crash on the Bellarine Peninsula. With all the existing line-up now aged in their 40s, McLennon said the band was now “less volatile” than “in the old days”. “When starting out you want to do what ever it takes to become a success but we have no grand plan to take over the world these days,” he admitted. “Our old bodies don’t hold-up as well as they used to. We need a weeks rest after a show but we certainly enjoy performing more now than back in the old days.” The Meanies formed in 1989, releasing debut album Come ‘n’ See two years later. The band built a solid reputation on Australia’s punk scene in the ‘90s, touring with such international luminaries as Nirvana, Beastie Boys, Bad Brains, Redd Kross, Superchunk and Fugazi.

Success also took The Meanies on tour from Melbourne through to countries like Spain, Germany, France, Italy and Switzerland. McLennon said the band started off with small expectations before wanting to “take over the world”. “When we started out success was playing to 500 people and that was as good as it got,” he laughed. “Quality control went out the window the bigger our performances got. “Our shows had a pretty high intensity which not a lot of other bands had back then and I think that contributed to our success.” McLennon said the band members were enjoying life on the road as middle-aged rockers. “It certainly makes for a better climate when you’ve been doing this for so long with these guys. You just want to make it as fun as possible. “Nowadays we can make more demands which is fun - we refuse to drive ourselves interstate.” McLennon said The Meanies had put a cap on playing live but planned to keep playing indefinitely. “I think doing the one show here and there means there doesn’t have to be any end in sight,” he said. “We will keep going for decades.” The Meanies will feature on the Queenscliff bill with other acts including Frank Yamma, Mr Percival, Blue Shaddy, The Ray Beadle Band, Andy Bull and Skipping Girl Vinegar.

Back in the day: The Meanies when Point Lonsdale’s Tas Blizzard, at right, was still in the line-up.

BY ERIN PEARSON pring is the season for dancing and love, according to North Queensland blues, roots and swamp country performer 8 Ball Aitken. A banana picker turned full-time musician, Aitken recently returned to Australia from a 10-month tour across the USA where he gigged at Nashville’s famous Bluebird Cafe and a prestigious Folk Alliance Festival in Memphis. The flame-haired musician said he would bring his Nashville experiences to the heart of Geelong. “It’s great to be back home in Australia,” he said. “I’m bringing back some new songs that I wrote in Nashville. It was a very inspirational trip to make, spending time writing and recording in America’s iconic music city”. With what has been described as a sizzling hot blend of new school, original blues, roots and swamp music, the larrikin guitar wrangler will grace Geelong for the first time this weekend. “This will be my first time playing at the Sleepy Hollow Blues Club and I’m looking forward to meeting the local blues fans at Geelong Trades Hall,” he said. “The spring time is my favourite time to come out for a gig – people are ready to party, dance and fall in love.”

SATURDAY 30TH PM TILL 10

1

Combine garlic, paprika, 2tblsp lemon juice and oil in large shallow ceramic dish. Season both sides lamb with salt and pepper. Score lamb skin (this allows the marinade to penetrate).

Meanwhile, combine mayonnaise ingredients in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper, mix well and refrigerate.

3

Reduce heat to medium low, cover with barbecue hood and cook a further 15 minutes for medium, or until cooked to your liking. Cover with foil and rest for 10 minutes. Slice thinly across the grain.

Showered: Look thoroughly inside a cabriolet for signs of dampness or water stains as it may have been caught out in the rain. It’s a tiny car with odd styling that bulges at the back and slopes down in a somewhat disconcerting manner at the front. At best it can be described as cute. Though Mitsubishi has pulled out of local manufacturing in Australia the company is continuing as a major importer and has an ongoing commitment to providing spare parts, repairs and servicing. The standard hatches are pretty well screwed together, but make sure the engine starts easily, the transmission works smoothly and quietly and that the car doesn’t wander off the straight and narrow on the road. Check that the brakes pull the Colt up promptly and that no one wheel locks before the others. Body damage, or signs of it having been repaired, is a worry on any car, but especially so in the Ralliart variant of the Colt. Look for body panels that don’t line up correctly, on colours that don’t match from one panel to another. And for tiny spots of paint on areas that should be clear, glass and badges are the easiest to see. A turbocharged engine should have a minimum of lag, anything upwards of a second could be a worry, and shouldn’t be overly noisy in operation. Check on the service books of any car, particularly if it’s a turbo as the latter needs to have engine oil changes according to schedule. As well as having the complete dynamic system examined. Look thoroughly inside a cabriolet for signs of dampness or water stains as it may have been caught out in the rain. If it’s OK with the owner, lift the carpets to check the conditions underneath them.

47 YEARS CONTINUOUS TRADING IN GEELONG : RACV

The Independent, Friday October 22, 2010

424100-KS42-10

BY ERIC BLAIR MITSUBISHI Colt is a Japanesedesigned car which was built in Australia for many years during the 1980s and into the early ’90s before being withdrawn from our market during a period of government inspired ‘rationalisation’. During its time here it built up a well deserved reputation for being rugged and reliable. Colt was relaunched in Australia in September 2004. While they are fully imported from Japan, the fact that the world automotive marques had moved in a global direction means that the current Colts are reasonably suited to Australian driving conditions. In the suburbs, at least, like most in its class this car isn’t aimed at long term driving in the bush. Though it had been on sale in Japan for couple of years before reaching us, the Colt’s radical body styling still looked bang up to date when it arrived, and still has interesting lines to this day. Especially smart is the way the windscreen pillars continue all the way down to the bumper without any deviation from a straight line. Interestingly, the facelifted version, introduced in 2007, had quite lot of the rear design work in the car done by the Australian design branch of Mitsubishi. This cute little Mitsubishi is powered by a 1.5-litre twin-cam engine. Again it’s at the forefront of technology, with variable valve timing on the inlet valves. It provides good torque that’s well suited to driving a CVT. Colt automatics use a new design of continuously variable transmission (CVT). The manual is a conventional five-speed unit. Mitsubishi Colt Ralliart, sold from July 2006, is something special; a fivedoor hot hatch at a pretty modest price. Power comes from a turbocharged and intercooled 1.5-litre engine. The Ralliart Colt has a more rigid body than the standard Colt and there’s sports suspension, complemented by upgraded brakes and larger wheels and tyres. Finally, there’s the Mitsubishi Colt Cabriolet convertible, which went on sale in November 2006.

tint service makes all the difference Q

uality workmanship, products and customer service are key elements to professional glass tinting and Tintmaster is the leading name when it comes to window tinting. Lasting quality and skilled tinting technicians offer value for money, which all combine to provide the very best window tinting for your car or home. Owner Dave Kershaw says the installation process makes all the difference to a good tint job. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not all window tints are the same, there are many different types, styles and films. If you buy a fridge, you go to an electrical store and you get the same fridge anywhere, but with window tinting, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important not only what the film is, but how itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s applied and the care thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken in the installation process. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the edge we have at Tintmaster. We use the best films and the most experienced and technically qualified tinters in Geelong.â&#x20AC;? Tintmaster, the professional glass tinting company is Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only licensed installer of 3M and MEP Australia films and uses the best solar controlled window film from leading manufacturers in the United States. To top this off, all of the work is done in a modern workshop with the latest technology. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you want your car to look great and to be cool and you want to get the best value-for-money window tint, come and see us at Tintmaster,â&#x20AC;?

Suzuki is solid and reliable BY ERIC BLAIR uzuki has been a major player in the small 4WD field for four decades and is recognised worldwide as a master operator in this field. Its biggest accolades are handed out due to the fact that the Japanese marque makes genuine 4WDs, not pretend ones that look the part but arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really intended to go into real 4WD territory. In its latest iteration, Suzukiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grand Vitara has been further improved over its honourable ancestors. Naturally it still comes with a tough body that can cope with real off-road work. Though the body is no longer sitting on a separate chassis, but uses car-like monocoque, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plenty of added strengthening underneath to give it a rugged build. And, of course it has a two-speed transfer case to give enable torque multiplication to the wheels and the ability to crawl along at ultra-low-speeds. The radiator grille has a more aggressive look with a stronger emphasis on the central â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (for Suzuki) logo than in previous models. Inside, there are changes to the dashboard, revised instrument designs and upgrades to the interior design and trim. Grand Vitara is powered by a 2.4-litre four-cylinder twin-cam engine that produces a respectable 122 kW, with torque being 225 Nm at a relatively high 4000 rpm. However, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good torque from about 2000 rpm upwards and the engine worked well in the dayto-day driving to which we subjected it over the last week. We were able to spend some time at the beach during our recent test drive of the Grand Vitara. Sand seems to be the natural habitat for Suzuki 4WDs, their light weight and good ground clearance letting them sail along in situations that can cause hassles for large 4WDs and SUVs. The really striking feature of the four-cylinder Suzuki engine is its refinement. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s as smooth and quiet as many a six-cylinder engine of a decade back. Our test Grand Vitara had a four-speed automatic transmission. While it works well enough itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starting to feel a bit old in comparison with some later designs from competitors.

S

You service your engine regularly.

The wheel deal: The Japanese marque makes genuine 4WDs, not pretend ones that look the part but arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really intended to go into real off-road territory. Interior space is good and this mid-sized 4WD can carry four adults in comfort, three children with ease. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good stowage space inside, with deep door pockets that can carry large drink containers and a centre console that, while on the small side, has plenty of depth. Some may find the Suzuki Grand Vitara less refined in its general ride and handling than newer models, particularly when they hail from Europe. But keep in mind that the Suzuki is a genuine 4WD and the slightly lower level of creature comfort makes sense.

You soon become accustomed to the feel of this vehicle and those who appreciate it for what it is will quickly fall in love with the adventurous lifestyle it provides. To cater for those who are happy to stay on the bitumen Suzuki recently released the appropriately named Grand Vitara Urban with features such as Bluetooth hands-free technology, rear park assist and alloy wheels. Bluetooth allows enabled phones to automatically connect to the vehicleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s audio system, even if the phone is hidden in a pocket, jacket or briefcase, pro-

viding a truly hands-free system. Integrated into the existing Suzuki audio system, it allows the driver to answer calls comfortably and conveniently by automatically muting the audio system and providing control via a selection of user friendly interfaces, including voice command. Priced from $25,990 the Suzuki Grand Vitara offers excellent value for a fully imported Japanese vehicle and is well worth adding to your list of possible buys. All the more so if you are genuinely interested in taking it into off-road areas to get the best from its considerable 4WD engineering.

If your moving, building a house or just having a tidy up, then you need to call Skips on Wheels. Skips on Wheels is an exciting fresh approach that has just hit Geelong and the Surf Coast, offering rubbish removal with a difference. Skips on Wheels aims to provide a cheaper, faster and no fuss rubbish removal service for domestic and commercial purposes. Skips on Wheels has several advantages over the traditional skip bins, including you only pay for the volume of rubbish removed, from as little as one cubic meter, no additional council permit costs, no damage to driveways and neighbours can’t fill the bin at your expense. The free loading service enables large, heavy and awkward items to be removed with ease, with items ranges fridges, washing machines, couches, mattresses and any other unwanted goods.

Investment Banking Institute Geelong’s push to become a financial hub in regional Australia received a boost when the Investment Banking Institute announced this month that it is opening a Geelong campus to deliver Financial Education. Investment Banking Institute (IBI) is a Registered Training Organisation that delivers education for individuals who work in the banking, finance, mortgage broking, insurance and superannuation industry. IBI education group was established in 2001 with offices in Melbourne and Sydney. IBI clients include the major top four banks and major insurance, superannuation and financial planning organisations. The Financial Services sector is the third largest contributor to GDP and employment in Australia. Geelong up until now has been poorly serviced by education providers in financial services training. Employers previously had to send staff to Melbourne or do correspondence courses which were cumbersome and expensive. IBI delivers Nationally accredited Certificate, Diploma and Advanced Diploma courses in Financial Services, Quality Auditing, Bookkeeping, Mortgage Broking and Financial Literacy. IBI is registered with the Australian Securities

Diversitat Training As a registered training organisation since 1997, Diversitat is Geelong’s largest community based provider, delivering nationally accredited qualifications and certificates by qualified and experienced trainers and consultants. Our accessible and flexible training courses across a range of industry sectors assist students to expand their knowledge and skills to enhance their work and life opportunities. Offering small class sizes, dedicated trainers, short courses, long courses and traineeships, Diversitat offers something for everyone. Do you love to work with people? Then our wide range of Community Services Courses is for you. The dual qualification in Certificate III in Aged Care and Home and Community Care, Certificate III in Disability, or the Certificate III in Children’s Services are suitable for recent school leavers, those returning to work, or just looking for a change in career direction.

and Investments Commission (ASIC) as a recognised provider of Financial Services (RG146) qualifications. The courses are relevant for personal and business development particularly for those who have Self Managed Superannuation Funds (SMSF) or starting a new business. IBI is employing local trainers and experienced financial advisors to build the skills in the region and strengthening the professionalism and creditability of Geelong’s Financial Services industry. Students are mentored by experienced industry personnel to develop their skills and assist in finding employment opportunities. The Geelong Campus is located at the old Greater Geelong Law Centre at 60 Lt Ryrie Street.

Years of work experience – but no piece of paper to prove it? Often people spend time during their working life completing short courses to keep up with developments in their industry or chosen career. Finding time for a formal qualification often seems difficult with work and family pressures. The Gordon offers Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) which recognises skills and knowledge gained through previous study or other relevant experience. If you have relevant work experience but do not have a formal qualification, you may be eligible for RPL. Should you be assessed as

competent, RPL provides credit for already attained skills and may fast track your qualification. In some cases, your competencies can be found to be the equivalent of a whole qualification! If you already manage a small retail business, a department within a larger retail organisation, manage a salon, work in the hairdressing or floristry industry, or even apply nail enhancements –turn these skills and experience into recognised qualifications at the Retail and Personal Services Department at The Gordon. 855744-JM42-10

udding soccer hopefuls can learn to improve their skills and dream of playing professionally with one of the growing sport’s best programs available locally. Doc Football Academy is operating programs at Geelong’s Kardinia International School from 10am every Sunday. Former professional player David O’Connor and several qualified coaches can help develop the skills of both boys and girls aged from as early as four right through to 15. “We’re there to improve their skills,” David says. “The academy’s not looking to steal players from clubs, we’re there to make them better players for the clubs. “If they come to the academy, we’ll improve them.” David started the academy in 2002 when coaching professionally in Singapore’s top league before returning to Melbourne two years later. The prestigious academy now has an affiliation with famous soccer club Sheffield Wednesday. “We’ve taken a few kids over there already,” David says. “If players are good enough, we can open the doors for them. We also can open the door for them into the A-League and also in Asia. “What we are saying to kids is ‘If you’ve got ambitions, we can help you’ but if you just want to come and be a better player then we can do that as well.” A former professional for English side Barnsley, David arrived in Australia to play in the inaugural National Soccer League competition in 1977. He played under former assistant national coach Les Scheinflug at the Brisbane Lions as well as Rale Rasic at Sydney Olympic and legendary Socceroo Johnny Warren at Canberra City. More information about the academy is available by phoning David on 0402 520 888, 8418 0363 or emailing doc@docfootballacademy.com.

sport Trout about for weekend clinic On the bite BRIAN LONG THIS weekend will present a fantastic opportunity for budding junior anglers to catch a fish at North Geelong’s Seagull Lake. Six-hundred rainbow trout have been liberated into the lake for an annual Ron Nelson Junior Fishing Clinic from 9am to 1pm Sunday. This clinic is free for children aged under 16 to participate in the joys of angling with the guidance of Association of Geelong Angling Clubs. Continuing the freshwater theme, Lake Purrumbete produced rainbow and brown trout in the past week to anglers trolling and fishing with bait. Redfin can also be taken at the lake with ice jigs or bobbers. Lake Bullen Merri continued to be a magnet to shore-based anglers, with rainbows up to 1.2kg taking Powerbait fished on running sinker rigs. Trollers continued catching larger browns, some pushing 3kg. West Barwon Reservoir Dam returned browns on minnow-pattern lures along with scrub worms fished unweighted on light tackle. All the best action was from mid afternoon until dark. John Carmichael returned from Lake Eildon where he caught trout to 1.6kg. John caught and released 11 in total, with the largest estimated at more than 3kg. In Corio Bay, pike were caught from both North Shore rocks and Point Lillias, with some pushing the one metre mark. Small, baitfish-profile lures fished on light tackle are best for this species. Peter Bourke used soft plastics on Geelong’s waterfront to catch a variety including a 2.1kg snapper and a butterfish of the same weight. Shane Walsh fished Royal Geelong Yacht Club’s wall where his berley attracted a shoal of trevalla. Using chicken and pippies for bait he landed a dozen fish in a hot two-hour session. Rippleside Jetty has been productive recently, with David Dean catching bream on Squidgy Critters in the Lava colour. He landed six fish around the 33cm each while other anglers using bait struggled to get even a bite. Difficult fishing conditions made snapper reports patchy but a few hardy souls who fished the mud off the silos in Corio Bay caught quality fish, with the best we saw weighing 6.2kg. On Tuesday morning in calm conditions Joel Marks landed two fish of 2.6kg and 4.1kg on pilchards. Clifton Springs started to fire, with Claude Cummings catching 12 big fish in the past two weeks. Claude has found the first two hours of the run-off from high tide best, with fresh squid his bait of choice. Adrian Trotter took five-year-old daughter

Winner: Megan Trotter, 5, won the Independent’s weekly Shimano picture of the week prize for this 5kg snapper, above, while Caleb Burgess shows off at right a couple of reds taken offshore from Barwon Heads. Megan fishing in the same area to return with a 5kg red. Adrian said special thanks must go to Megan for her netting support. Soft plastics anglers drifting the Hermsley spoil grounds caught small snapper around 30cm. Best lures were Gulp minnows in Peppered Prawn, although pike bite-offs were a problem. Squid continued to be taken in bag-limit captures, with small, natural coloured jigs effective on inshore grass beds. Swan Bay has been producing squid but flathead have also started coming right on the bite, with John Stevens catching two 63cm fish. Gummy sharks were also taken, although too small to be worth keeping. Queenscliff’s cut was quieter, with good numbers of tommy rough but fewer trevally. Dale Sterling caught trevally on curl-tail grubs but only during the two hours before high tide. Surf anglers caught snapper, trevally and whiting from Black Rock, Torquay and Collendina, mostly after dark when using fresh squid for bait. Queenscliff’s cut should be worthwhile on this weekend’s afternoon high tides with soft plastics, while the spoil grounds off Pelican Shores Caravan Park should have a variety of fish including any number of pike. Send reports, photos and picture entries for Shimano’s $350 weekly and $2000 Christmas prize packs to info@raylongtackle.com.au or visit Brian at Ray Long’s Tackle World, 105 Shannon Avenue, Manifold Heights.

The Independent, Friday October 22, 2010.

‘Great Scott’, says Cat chief ANDREW MATHIESON THREE men have been credited with Geelong’s most successful era in almost 60 years: Brian Cook, Frank Costa and Mark Thompson. Costa is on the verge of stepping down as the smooth club president but it’s Thompson who controversially quit the coaching job, causing a ripple effect at Kardinia Park. The other pillar – the Cats’ chief executive – has remained positive after a tumultuous few weeks in charge. The ultimate salesmen, Cook enjoyed selling the virtues of new coach Chris Scott when helping announce his surprise appointment this week. “We’re very excited to have Chris with us at the helm of the Cats,” Cook told a waiting media pack. “He brings to this club an immense amount of leadership quality. “We believe he has great management potential, has a great understanding of the sports science world and the IT world, is a person we think is a future-type of coach, a coach-manager – that’s the way we’re heading.” Amazingly, the Cats revealed they had considered up to 120 possible candidates for the senior job. The list was quickly narrowed to 18 and then a final four. Scott, formerly a Fremantle assistant coach, was appointed after Geelong’s board of directors unanimously endorsed a recommendation from a club working party that “went through a pretty intense review process”. Cook was left beaming, barely containing his delight at Scott’s arrival. “Those last four we felt would really fit into our culture – that was really important for us,” Cook said. “Then from there we really had to look at technical qualities as well as a lot of other qualities – Chris came out of that with flying colours. “We fell in love with Chris over a two-week period, it was a short honeymoon, but now we have the marriage.” The decision came down one key word – culture

Married to the Cats: Chris Scott at this week’s announcement. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 55062 – or, as Cook said, a “very successful culture and environment”. “That’s certainly went his way as well because it wasn’t about age,” he said. “It was more about being a part of an experienced team and being a leader of a really successful culture that certainly the Brisbane Lions were.” Cook said the Cats’ decision was not made with just tomorrow in mind. “The appointment of Chris is not simply about 2011 – it’s also about 2015,” he said. “We believe that in the interests of the football club and the longer term … we believe that Chris is an exciting appointment at the football club. “We felt there was a tremendous upside with Chris in the years to come.”

Cats itching to scratch up victory GEELONG Cricket Club’s first XI will be itching to get out on the paddock tomorrow after last weekend’s round was called off due to wet weather. The Cats would not have enjoyed sitting in the sheds knowing their good form was going to waste but there’s no reason they can’t pick up tomorrow where they left off two weeks ago when they host Frankston Penninsula in another one-day fixture. While the bowlers shouldn’t have too much trouble re-finding their rhythm, it’s the batsman who will be looking to spend some time in the middle. Liam Buchanan in particular will want to have a hit, not having been required so far this season. Geelong has always been an excellent early season team and there’s no reason that should end tomorrow, so the Cats will expect nothing less than a victory. Geelong Cricket Association begins it’s two-day format tomorrow, having fixtured just two rounds of one-day matches to kick off the season, the second of which was washed out last weekend after a week of steady rain. In division one we get an early chance to sort out some of the big guns because three of the games scheduled pit some of the league’s heavyweights against each other. Reigning premier Lara takes on perennial finalist Grovedale in what will be a tough match for both sides. Lara has retained Chris

Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE Bambury as skipper and its batting and bowling depth appears in as good a shape as it’s ever been. Grovedale, though, is not to be taken lightly with a star-studded line-up. In two other crucial matches, St Joesphs takes on South Barwon and Geelong West hosts East Belmont. All four teams boast quality players, which will make for some outstanding cricket. Selections: LARA v Grovedale, ST JOSEPHS v South Barwon, Geelong West v EAST BELMONT, Leopold v THOMSON, BELL POST HILL v Manifold heights, NORTH GEELONG v Newtown and Chilwell. Division two also has some cracker games scheduled. Geelong City wasted no time sending out a warning to the rest of the division that it intends to go straight back up to division one with a thrashing of North Shore last start. Alexander Thomson, however, is no North Shore and will provide much stiffer opposition, with Sean Arnott at the helm of a very capable division-two side.

With Lucas Benci in good early season form for the Vikings, City won’t have everything its own way. Highton hosts Torquay, while St Albans Breakwater travels to Marshall in two other important games. It’s worth remembering that while these big sides are battling it out, it’s a great opportunity for the other clubs to chalk up a win and leapfrog some of the other sides. Selections: GEELONG CITY v Alexander Thomson, Highton v TORQUAY, GUILD ST MARY’S v Waurn Ponds, Marshall v ST.ALBANS BREAKWATER, Newcomb and District v MURGHEBOLUC, ST PETERS v North Shore. Teesdale travels to Little River in the division three match of the round. Last week’s washout would have left Teesdale wondering exactly where it’s at, as Meredith would have provided a good test. Shaun Campbell remains the premier bowler in the division but with batsmen the calibre of Todd Elsey plying their trade for Little River this will be a good battle between bat and ball. Expect this match to be evenly poised come Saturday night. Selections: CORIO v Lethbridge, MODEWARRE v Bannockburn, INVERLEIGH v Corio Bay, WINCHELSEA v Bell Park, Little River v TEESDALE, Meredith bye.
