Takeover bid for ‘dangerous road’ BY KIM WATERS RESIDENTS want State Government stripped of its power over “dangerous” St Leonard’s roads, according to a community representative. St Leonards Progress Association’s Paul Sproule said residents were pushing for council to take over maintenance of the roads amid Government inaction. He accused the Government’s Department of Sustainability and Environment of failing to maintain Lower Bluff Road in particular, leaving it “riddled with pot-holes”. The road’s deterioration had sparked a blame game over responsibility for maintenance, Mr Sproule said. “It’s like ping-pong at the moment because DSE own the road but will only provide $10,000 as a once-off funding commitment for it’s maintenance and council in good faith has re-sheeted the road but can’t afford to keep doing it. “We want to see the land handed over to Geelong council so that at least it will be maintained properly.” Mr Sproule urged DSE to either “communicate” with council on a solution or hand over responsibility. The popular road was now so damaged it was “almost impossible” to drive on, Mr Sproule said. “It provides the main access to the foreshore, including the yacht club, a safe swimming beach and the entrance to Edwards Point State Fauna Reserve. “Lower Bluff Road is one of three exits if there is a fire and it’s very important that it is maintained and in good condition.”
Rough ride: Don McKenzie and Paul Sproule on “dangerous” Lower Bluff Road. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 55511 Mr Sproule said more than 800 residents had signed a petition for improved maintenance and reduced speed limits on Lower Bluff Road and council-owned Beach Road. VicRoads had informed the association that council could
apply for reduced speed limits “where there are safety issues”. “These are shared gravel roads between cars, young children, pedestrians, cyclists and trucks,” Mr Sproule said. “By default the roads are currently 50km/h but it’s too fast and
a recipe for disaster.” Mr Sproule, a former highway patrol policeman, pleaded with council for a “more-responsible approach”. “I’ve dealt with fatalities on country and regional roads and I know what I’m talking about.

“We’re going to keep fighting for this speed reduction and fighting to get the ownership of Lower Bluff Road handed over to Geelong council.” DSE and council had not returned calls for comment before the Independent went to press.
‘Issues’ for local teens confronted BY KIM WATERS MENTAL health problems, alcohol, smoking and global warming are playing on the minds of Bellarine Peninsula teenagers, according to a youth forum organiser. Facilitator Rob Evans said the “major issues” emerged at the Youth Foundation Victoria MISSION forum for teens to brainstorm ideas for fixing social problems. Mr Evans said the event was a “huge success” after 60 students from two schools attended. “The youths worked in groups to explore issues in the community that were important to them and then they came up with a vision statement of what they’d like to see done about the problems,” Mr Evans said. “We had quite a few young people grab applications forms for our $2500 grants that we provide for community service projects and events.” Mr Evans said mental health and “employment support” were two of the key issues discussed at the forum. “It has really been an opportunity for young people to step up and learn some amazing leadership skills,” he said. “I’m really impressed with the way they were thinking about implementing ideas both in terms of fundraising and holding events that are both fun and educational. “We had a really good response from the schools and the community representatives who attended, so we’d definitely look at running this again next year.” Youth Foundations Victoria (YFV) is a State Government initiative to “enable young people in disadvantaged (areas) to make meaningful contributions to their communities”.

Visionary: Doug Sheers’ Black Saturday Fires, left, and Melba Hills’ Underwater Paradise, right.
Imagination overcomes loss of vision for pair of painters TWO GEELONG residents have refused to let their vision loss stand in the way of their passion for art. Vision Australia has selected works from St Albans Park residents Doug Sheers and Melba Hill to feature in the organisation’s 2011 calendar. Mr Sheers, a former AFL trainer, earned a place in the calendar with his Black Saturday Fires painting. He said his sister’s loss of her Kinglake home in the 2009 fires had inspired his artwork.
The painting depicted his imagination of how the fires would have appeared, Mr Sheers said. “It must have been terrifying to experience such a force of nature.” Mr Sheers joined Vision Australia’s art and craft group after blocked retina blood vessels damaged his sight. Vision Australia chose Underwater Paradise from Ms Hill, 87. “I love the sea but am not brave enough to explore it, so I used my imagination,” she said.
‘Sea-rise’ rates appealed BY KIM WATERS RESIDENTS have lodged appeals against rates hikes on properties deemed at risk of flooding from climate change, Borough of Queenscliffe has revealed. A borough spokesperson said council had received 18 appeals compared to "considerably fewer" for the last rates hike. A group opposing the borough's planning restrictions on properties judged at risk from rising seas said hiking rates on the affected allotments was "unfair".
Save 600's Peter Russell believed quite a few residents in the town’s flood-mapped area had appealed their rates increase. "If the rates had significantly decreased it would have meant council's restrictions had negatively affected the value of our land but the significant increase is just as bad," he said. "Council and State Government can't tell us our land is worth that much money and make us pay these rates when they're happy to put huge restrictions on our properties.”

‘One in 10’ now living below the line
Bills ‘spread poverty’
“GLOOM and doom” about summers should make way for a return to excitement about holidays, according to the region’s tourism chief. Geelong Otway Tourism executive director Roger Grant said he wanted to “reclaim summer as the holiday season”. Holidaymakers were justified in “jumping on planes” to elsewhere given all the reports of summer hazards, he said. “I turn on the radio or switch on the television and all I hear is summer described in all these gloom and doom terms. “We have the bushfire season, the locust season, the sunburn season, the gluttony season, the snake season, the drowning season, the oh-no-here-come-the-relatives season.” Mr Grant acknowledged people must be “sensible” about bushfires, sunburn and swimming risks “and mostly we are”. “So I believe it’s about time we reclaim summer for what it has always been here in Victoria and particularly in the Geelong Otway region – the holiday season.”

BY ANDREW MATHIESON RISING living costs are forcing more Geelong residents into poverty despite a booming national economy, according to Barwon Community Legal Service. Manager Nick Hudson said rising debts were also forcing some homeless clients to sleep on spare couches or live in cars as they struggled to keep up with a “rental crisis” in affordable accommodation. The service had calculated more than 20,000 people in the region, or about one in 10, were living below the poverty line. Mr Hudson said the worst impact was on accommodation. “The biggest challenge facing the people of Geelong is availability of affordable housing because there is very limited stock of public housing. A lot of them end up with friends and relatives when they can and are just making do,” he said. Mr Hudson said legal service clients usually found the private rental market too expensive. Debt-chasing companies were “creating the most grief” for Geelong people struggling on welfare benefits, he said. “That might be their mobile phone provider because they’re the most aggressive about pursuing a bill or it might be the credit card provider who they’re paying back rather than paying their rent or their electricity, which should be a higher priority.” Mr Hudson said soaring power costs associated with new smart meters were providing “no benefit for impoverished consumers”. Community and education development worker Jillian Chapman said her increasingly impoverished clients were becoming socially isolated. “Poverty is much more than struggling to keep the roof over your head and food on the table,” she said. “Poverty is also living without access to information, opportunities and social interaction.” Former social worker Edwin Singer told the Independent since becoming unemployed he was battling with all the traits of “living below the poverty line”. The 54-year-old said he was sometimes forced to roll up cigarette butts in lolly papers to support his smoking habit or abandon meat-based dinners for omelettes to make ends meet. Mr Singer battled to find $20 a week to keep his

$1m in Heads kinder pledge BY ERIN PEARSON A COALITION state government would provide $1 million for a new kindergarten at Barwon Heads, shadow early childhood minister Wendy Lovell announced yesterday. Ms Lovell made the pre-election pledge after parents raised “multiple” issues on child care and kindergartens during a meeting with her in Geelong. Ms Lovell said Barwon Heads’ kinder had outgrown its existing building. The Independent revealed earlier this year that the facility had joined a Torquay kinder in cancelling three-year-old classes next year due to inadequate space to meet demand. Three-year-old classes were also under pressure in Geelong. “The current (Barwon Heads) kindergarten is inadequate and failing to meet the needs of the region’s growing population,” Ms Lovell said. “I have been advised by current kindergarten parents that some children are expected to miss out on three and four-year-old kindergarten in 2011 due to the chronic shortage of places in Barwon Heads.” Liberal candidate for South Barwon Andrew Katos said a coalition government would work with council and Barwon Heads residents to choose a site. The building would replace the existing kinder and child health centre to combine them on a single site, he said. The coalition also promised to address Geelong’s
City rules out ‘domestic leave’ BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG’S council has ruled out following Surf Coast Shire in introducing paid leave for victims of family violence leave. A City of Greater Geelong spokesperson said council had “no immediate plans” to adopt Surf Coast’s Australian-first entitlement for physical, sexual, emotional, financial or verbal abuse. Surf Coast Shire introduced the 20-day leave at the behest of Australian Services Union. The Surf Coast agreement has been described as “possibly the
most progressive in the world on family violence”. Australian Council of Trade Unions president Ged Kearney said the Surf Coast agreement could become a “template for all workplaces”. “This agreement...is groundbreaking and I encourage other unions and employers to consider adopting a similar entitlement.” But CCI Lawyers’ Sean Millard, whose business advises Victorian Employers’ Chamber of Commerce and Industry, was concerned about how businesses
could deal with the “highly sensitive issue” of family violence. “It raises a question over whether employers should be expected to entertain such a clause agreement,” he said. “It will certainly raise domestic violence leave as an issue and I expect some reluctance from others to provide leave in addition to the current sick, compassionate and holiday leave on offer. Small and medium business simply won’t have the resources to be able to provide another 20 days of paid leave.” 500756-RMB43-10

Picture: Tommy Ritchie 55598 child care squeeze during the meeting with parents. Ms Lovell said parents across the state had expressed concern over Commonwealth plans to increase kinder hours to 15 hours a week from 2013. The increase required $606 million in Victorian infrastructure investments and 600 to 800 extra teachers, she said. “If (the coalition is) elected on November I would call on Federal Government to put up funding for this infrastructure. We want to make sure there is a place for every child right across the state.” Geelong mother-of-two Nicola Wojcik said parents had little information about the 15-hour policy or how it would impact on kinder operations. “We don’t want to lose three-year-old places because of this change,” she said. “A majority of our playgroup has kids in these classes and we can see the benefits.” State Early Childhood Development Minister Maxine Morand had not returned the Independent’s call for comment when the paper went to press.

BY ANDREW MATHIESON STATE Emergency Service could be dispatching unqualified volunteers to battle natural disasters including bushfires, according to Geelong staff. Community and Public Sector Union claimed the SES needed to “at least double” its workforce in the region to meet training requirements and increasing workloads. SES’s four Geelong staff comprises a regional manager, a volunteer support officer, a technical trainer and an administration worker. CPSU organiser Emily Castle said a skeleton staff of just six employees covered Victoria’s south-west region from Geelong to Hamilton. “There’s been no change to
staffing in almost 20 years,” she said. “They (SES) haven’t actually increased their operational capacity in any shape or form. They actually need to have a dedicated resource for operational duties because at the moment they haven’t.” Ms Castle said the union’s call for a staff increase was in line with Victoria’s recent Bushfire Royal Commission. Country Fire Authority had been awarded $850 million for extra staff but the SES had “got nothing”, she said. Ms Castle believed the SES was now “cutting corners” with staff training volunteers. “At the moment the trainers are being used operationally to subside the responsibilities of the regional manager and consequently they haven’t got time to train up

the volunteers, so it’s a bit of an insidious little circle.” Ms Castle said the SES’s response to demands for more workers had been “deafening silence”. “We’ve been agitating for a number of years before we decided to go public with it.” SES claimed a 40 per cent increase in full-time-equivalent staffing throughout regional Victoria in the past four years to free up operational staff for emergencies. An SES spokesperson said increasing operational responses had “certainly impacted our workload”. The SES has adopted many of the recommendations from the Bushfires Royal Commission on warnings and command and control changes, the spokesperson said. 29-10-2010
PCD International Pty Ltd 78 Mercer St Geelong
GIVING his cousin the kiss of life after he went into cardiac arrest during a canasta game has earned Corio’s Tony Santosporito a hero’s award. Ambulance Victoria bestowed the award on Mr Santosporito this week for saving the life of Ronald Costa last year with “quick actions”. Mr Santosporito was surprised his CPR lessons from the 1970s came back so vividly when Mr Costa collapsed at his Newtown home during their regular game of canasta. “It’s amazing what you remember. I established he had no pulse and instinct just kicked in,” he said. “I rang 000 and the woman on the phone just kept telling me to keep going, so I did. It’s pretty hard yakka.” Mr Santosporito said his experience highlighted the importance of learning first-aid skills. “If you take anything away at all (from first-aid training), make sure it’s CPR because Ron is still here today, tough as nails.”

The City of Greater Geelong has announced a month long Dog and Cat Registration Amnesty during November 2010. The purpose of the Amnesty is to provide assurance to dog and cat owners to come forward and register their animals with the City without fear of a penalty being issued for keeping an unregistered dog and/or cat.
Council adopted the Amnesty which, will operate between 1 and 30 November at its meeting on Tuesday 12 October.
CENTRAL GEELONG SPECIAL RATE
Geelong residents are amongst the highest owners of dogs and cats in Australia. As a means to manage domestic pets, legislation requires that local government register all cats and dogs being kept within its municipality.
PROPOSED SPECIAL RATE CONTINUATION NOTICE OF PANEL HEARING Council is proposing to continue the special rate for the Central Geelong area for a five year period commencing 1 July 2011. Funds raised by the proposed rate are to be applied to the following: • Marketing, promotion and advertising of Central Geelong. • Stakeholder development including business information, training, networking and business directory. • Delivery of activities and events including the Farmers Market and School Holiday Fun program. • Evaluation of Activities. • Administration associated with the Central Geelong Marketing Commitee Office. Council advertised its intention to continue the rate on 13 August 2010 and invited submissions and objections. A Submissions Panel Hearing has been convened to hear submissions and objections received and details are as follows: Date: Tuesday 9 November 2010 Time: 4.30pm Location: City Hall, 30 Gheringhap Street Property owners affected by the proposal and members of the public are welcome to attend the Panel Hearing. Owners who have made submissions or objections have been advised by letter.
Dog and cat registration and identification are basic, essential functions of municipal animal management. The benefits of pet registration identification are that it: • Links the animal with its owner to enable the return of lost animals. • Provides management information to the City to best manage animal incidents. • Provides a unique source of data about local pet populations and trends. Current data indicates that approximately 75 per cent of dog owners and 30 per cent of cat owners will voluntarily comply with pet registration and identification requirements. Residents who may be keeping unregistered dogs and/or cats may have done so for a number reasons including but not limited to: • May have forgotten to renew their previous year’s registration. • Having not registered in the first instance, may not be aware that there is a requirement to register their dog/cat with the City. • Not being on the City’s Animal Database, residents will not have received animal information relating to new/renewed registration of dogs or cats. At the conclusion of the Amnesty on 30 November, dog or cat owners who fail to register and identify their animals with Council will be subject to an on the spot penalty of $239. Dog or cat owners will be given 14 days to register the dog or cat with the City to avoid further legal proceedings.
PARK SMART – LOCK IT, REMOVE IT OR LOSE IT! The City of Greater Geelong has partnered with Neighbourhood Watch and Victoria Police to promote a Park Smart – Lock It, Remove It or Lose It campaign. The campaign is a reminder to residents to lock their car, remove all articles of value or risk losing their belongings and becoming a crime statistic. A reflective sticker promoting Lock It, Remove It or Lose It! will be randomly stuck onto resident garbage bins on bin night, in Newcomb/Geelong East and Belmont/Grovedale/ Highton areas. The roll out of the program will start on Monday 1 November. There will be no inconvenience to residents who are asked to put their garbage bins out at the usual time. The program is being rolled out in these areas first in response to a growing increase in thefts and break-ins from vehicles in these areas.
Dog and cat owners can take advantage of half price registration (new registrations only) at the current fee schedule. If your 2010 registration has not been renewed a 12 month fee will apply.
CHANGED TRAFFIC CONDITIONS FLINDERS AVENUE, LARA 5 AND 6 NOVEMBER Please be advised that the speed limit will be temporarily reduced on a defined section of Flinders Avenue, Lara from approximately 8.00am to 5.00pm on Friday 5 and Saturday 6 November 2010.

Union, â€˜chipsâ€™ firm in stoush BY ANDREW MATHIESON A UNION boss claims a Geelong woodchip exporter has punished a supervisor for leading workers in their push for higher pay. The Corio Quay workers accused Midway Geelong of refusing to honour a pay agreement for a five per cent increase over two years. They said the company offered 3.8 per cent before backing down when Construction Forestry Mining and Energy Union took industrial action last month.
But CFMEU organiser Julian Cook said the supervisor had paid for his role in the tough wage negotiations on behalf of the 15 employees. â€œThe supervisor has been told he will now go back on rotating shifts,â€? Mr Cook said. â€œHeâ€™s been doing this supervisory role on day shift for eight years â€“ a job that he applied for and he got it in that shift, so itâ€™s certainly not a coincidence.â€? The union wanted the supervisor compensated with a one-off â€œredundancyâ€? payment for chang-
ing shifts. â€œThis member may feel there is a bit of payback involved because he can justify his job and he still has work to perform.â€? Mr Cook said the company could employ a â€œmanager on salaryâ€? to perform some of the supervisorâ€™s duties. He blamed Midway chairman Greg McCormack for pennypinching on the pay rise. The Independent attempted to contact Midway for comment but the company failed to return calls.

Community crime fighter in hall of fame

Honour on his Watch BY ERIN PEARSON WHEN Ron Bell moved into Bell Post Hill in the 1960s, he could never have imagined his neighbourly spirit would single-handedly produce 14 million newsletters. But his efforts keeping tabs on crime and community safety for Neighbourhood Watch have now earned state and Australasian recognition. The grandfather has been named Geelong’s first Neighbourhood Watch Australasia Malcolm Grant Volunteer of the Year. He has also become the first resident of Geelong inducted into Neighbourhood Watch Victoria Hall of Fame. As one of the first regional Victorians to join the community crime-prevention program, Mr Bell said he still remembered his first Neighbourhood Watch meeting 26 years ago. The meeting led to the foundation of the first Neighbourhood Watch group in Geelong and the second in Victoria. “I was reading a book in the doctor’s surgery about the fact America had just started-up Neighbourhood Watch programs and I thought it was a great idea,” Mr Bell said. “The very next week there was an ad in the paper and I called up. “Crime was very high in the area back in 1984 because Bell Post Hill was a developing area and thefts from houses being built were common. We had 127 people turn up at the first meeting and on the night 64 people signed up. “It was terrific and a dozen or so of those people are still involved.” Mr Bell said monthly meetings and his promise to print the area’s Neighbourhood Watch newsletter kept him actively involved in the program over the next quarter of a century. He believed Neighbourhood Watch

from Eye on crime: Ron Bell with his members played an effective role combating crime. “We all keep an eye out for our neighbours,” he said. “In the first year Neighbourhood Watch started, crime dropped 52 per cent. It would be very nice to have no crime rate but that drop was marvelous.” Mr Bell began writing the monthly newsletter in 1984, using a printer
‘250’ for talkfest on sustainability HUNDREDS of officials will fly from around Australia to attend a conference in Geelong next year on “sustainable” growth. Elaine Carbines, the chief of the region’s G21 councils alliance body, said the Sustainable Economic Growth for Regional Australia (SEGRA) conference would attract over 250 delegates. Ms Carbines said organisers announced the city had secured the 2011 event while she attended a 2010 SEGRA conference in Townsville with Geelong councillor Rod Macdonald and Regional Development Australia’s Barwon South West officer, Andrew Wear. “It will provide us with a unique opportunity to showcase our amazing region,” she said.
Neighbourhood Watch award. from the former Shire of Corio. He estimated his printing run over the years was close to 14 million. “The City of Greater Geelong now provides me with a machine to print the newsletters on and I still print around 40,000 every month,” he said. “I guess there’s a sense of security when you know your neighbours. I’m very proud of that.”

KIDNEY patients will have extra reason to hope for sunshine after Barwon Health opened the “world’s first” solar-powered dialysis centre in Geelong this week. Barwon Health unveiled the facility at Ryrie Street’s Rotary House, saying it would offset the power consumption of dialysis treatment with “renewable and clean energy”. Barwon Health initiated the solar system after starting recycling procedures to cut down on the treatment’s use of water. Each dialysis treatment used
up to six kilowatts of electricity and 400 litres of water while generating five litres of “infections waste”, the health service said. Renal services director Professor John Agar called dialysis the “most water and power hungry of any individual medical therapy”. “With cheap and simple recycling practices we now save and reuse the majority of water required by the dialysis process, while our solar program will generate an ongoing grid-reimbursement income for the dialy-
sis service,” Prof Agar said. He believed project collaborator Fresenius Medical Care could take the system international. “The ramifications of this are huge. If our project proves successful – and so far it has – then Fresenius intends to roll out solar power for dialysis units around Australia and even the world modeled on our system.” Dialysis patients will have no reason to fear cloudy days, with a Barwon Health spokesperson pointing out the centre would run on back-up power during periods of low sunshine.

Grief centre ‘to cover adults’
There is hope: Graham Morton outside Hope Bereavement Service’s headquarters. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 55575
BY ERIN PEARSON A GEELONG support service for families mourning deceased children will expand its bereavement care to cover the death of adults, according to a spokesperson. Hope Bereavement Service’s Graham Morton said a $14,000 grant from a Lord Mayor’s Charitable Fund would help the service reach more families and individuals struggling with grief. The service previously reached out to mourners battling to overcome the death of infants and children aged up to 18. Mr Marton said a recent discussion with a woman helping her step-mother through grief
had demonstrated the need for adult bereavement care in Geelong. “I was talking with a lady in her 50s whose step-mother had recently lost her partner. As a dutiful step-daughter she contacted her step-mother once a week but after several months she realised that since the death of her partner this was the only adult contact her step-mother was getting,” Mr Morton said. “We want to provide support to these people to reconnect with social and community networks.” Mr Morton said a 2009 Deakin University report recommended the establishment of an “appropriately resourced bereavement
referral centre” in Geelong. The grant would help the service act on the recommendations, he said. “Our aim is to provide crisis bereavement information, establish a bereavement support help website and specialist bereavement support groups where they are needed in the community.” Mr Morton said the service would run the program in Geelong in partnership with Australian Centre for Grief and Bereavement. Mr Morton said Hope Bereavement Service was looking forward to the expansion after serving the region for 25 years.
“It’s been a long journey. “We’re a community-based group and we’ve applied for grant money from a number of organisations, one of which was the Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation.” Mr Morton said the service helped mourners without government funding in partnership with SIDS and Kids Victoria. Hope Bereavement Care’s services included counsellors, support groups, grief and trauma information and a 24-hour telephone support, he said. Mr Morton asked anyone who wanted to make a donation to the service to phone 5226 7269 or visit www.givenow .com.au/bpbp.

86 and still riding high Local Legends
On his bike: Bell Post Hillâ€™s Jack Griffin is a picture of health as he notches up epic journeys covering thousands of kilometres around Australia.
ANDREW MATHIESON Looking out into the distance on the flat, arid plains, the veteran cyclist holds onto his first RACV strip map from 1985 when, at 61, he mapped out his first big ride. â€œAll these little towns when you come through, thereâ€™s hardly a change in the population,â€? he remarks. Only last year Jack rode 1700km in 17 days from Brisbane to Cairns. â€œThat was quite easy, actually. I didnâ€™t have any problem there,â€? he boasts. â€œI just did a 100km a day but I could have ridden 120km if I wanted to.â€? A year older, this time Jack has cut down to 90km a day to acclimatise. But the distance was a struggle at first for our super octogenarian. It took a diet of creamed rice and tinned fruit to get his legs pumping. â€œWhen I left Townsville I was very crook because I had a touch of diahorrea and had sunstroke,â€? he says. â€œFor the next day or two I was bringing up everything and couldnâ€™t eat. After about the fifth day I came good.â€? Still, Jack beats his chest about good health after being admitted only twice to hospital in his life â€“ and the first time was as a four-year-old to have his tonsils removed. Never exceeding 63kg since joining the air force, Jack

SPECTATORS that cheered home champion Cadel Evans powering around Geelongâ€™s streets in recent world cycling championships should spare a thought for Jack Griffinâ€™s tired, old legs. The ageless 86-year-old from Bell Post Hill has just pedalled 2500 kilometres in blistering heat amid deathly silence where younger men have died trying. â€œIâ€™m getting a little bit wary, maybe because of this weather,â€? he tells the Independent while riding into Mataranka approaching the Top End. Temperatures have topped the high 30s for most of the past 28 days. By 7:30am and after a couple of hours on the bike already, the humidity starts to kick in for Jack. Itâ€™s so bad he sips on water every two to three minutes. â€œIt drains all the energy out of you,â€? Jack swears of the conditions, â€œyour clothes are wringing wet and you just perspire all day.â€? When Barwon Headsâ€™ Evans was bringing thousands in awe, Jack had barely changed gears on the longer journey from Townsville to Darwin. There were no prized medals on offer, nor flying media packs eyeing every twist and turn. â€œIâ€™m friends with Cadel Evans,â€? Jack chimed in. â€œHe once said to me â€˜Iâ€™d love to be riding the bike when Iâ€™m as old as youâ€™. â€œWell, thatâ€™s about the only thing Iâ€™ve got on him.â€? But Jack could possibly challenge his famous mate for number of kilometres travelled. Three times Jack has cycled around Australia, so the roads on his latest challenge are familiar.
DETAILS IN FINALLY FRIDAY
PIONEER ORCHID FARM END OF SEASON admits at least one onlooker had thought the TownsvilleDarwin ride was weighing him down. â€œHow do you ride a bike with all that weight?â€? the spectator asked. â€œWhat weight? I donâ€™t carry any on my bike,â€? Jack responded. â€œFrom all those rocks youâ€™ve got in your head,â€? the man cheekily clarified. Jack started riding bikes in 1932 when every Melbourne suburb had a cycling club and few cars were on the road. â€œThe time trials men were doing back then, well, the women are absolutely thrashing those times now,â€? he observes. The first bicycle he owned
was a Two-star Malvern Star that he rode from Wangaratta to Melbourne in nine hours, 55 minutes to visit an aunty. Now paying $11,000 for a carbon-fibre replica of Lance Armstrongâ€™s bike has only accelerated Jackâ€™s enthusiasm for riding on the road. â€œI always say that whatever it is you enjoy keep doing it until it kills you or you canâ€™t do it any longer. â€œNobody is promised a tomorrow. You canâ€™t do it when youâ€™re dead, so why not enjoy it while youâ€™re here? â€œEvery day I wake up I wonder where I can go to today.â€?

2000 back $50m project ABOUT 2000 signatures are on a petition urging federal and state governments to fund redevelopment of Geelong Library and Heritage Centre, according to City Hall. Councillor Rod Macdonald said the petition was a “quick snap shot” taken over two weeks of community support for the proposed $50 million redevel-
opment. The project was essential because the library was now “too small”, while the heritage centre needed rebuilding to preserve Geelong’s historical records, he said. Geelong’s council has set aside $20 million for the project contingent on state and federal governments contributing $15 million each.

I WRITE regarding a story in last week’s Independent about Royal Geelong Show losing $100,000 due to rain this year. The show said it would now have to put on hold some improvements that had been planned to start in 2010 and that entry fees might have to increase in 2011. I understand that not much can be done about the weather but the show’s entry fees go up each year, along with the cost of rides, food and showbags. Each family who attends needs about $300 to have a good day with two children and their parents. With the people losing their jobs in Geelong due to companies closing down or cost cutting and with the amount of people on the footpath outside Centrelink after 9am any Friday waiting to put their forms in, the show would be mad to put up the entry fee. My idea would be to lower the entry fees for families and other patrons. Shaun Richens Newcomb

letters Show hike mad
PASSENGER numbers at Avalon have decreased yet Melbourne Airport has seen an increase (Independent, October 22). The major reason for this is the higher cost to park at Avalon compared to Melbourne. The day rate at Avalon is a whopping $24 compared with just $14 at Tullamarine’s Jetport Tullamarine. For an extra day’s stay it’s $36 to park at Avalon compared with $26.50 at Jetport. It should be cheaper to park at Avalon given its lower overheads. Until Avalon Airport’s parking fees are reduced I will continue to fly from Melbourne. David Charles Newtown

HOW brainless are Michael Crutchfield and his Labor mates to go ahead with schooling for years 10 to 12 students to further congest Torquay’s Grossman’s Road at
school times (Independent, October 22) The road also includes a kindergarten struggling for room to cope with enrolments. The secondary school should be in a more easily accessible location. How will essential services such as fire, ambulance and SES crews attend an emergency during school times? Then there is the brainless policy of no dams despite huge amounts of water going to sea. Despite former Premier Steve Bracks promising that no water would be taken from north of the divide, which is needed for our food bowl, in went his pipeline to Melbourne for people to water their gardens. But why worry? We will soon get all our food etcetera from China. Add to these bad plans the huge amount of money to be spent on a polluting desalination plant and the big increases we suckers have to pay for power, rates etcetera. At least they woke up after the huge loss of lives on Black Saturday to do more on fire control protection. Due to the fact Mr Crutchfield would fall three days short of qualifying for tax-free $65,000 parliamentary pension if he lost re-election (Independent, October 15), he is pushing for another term. The Labor State Government is well on the nose, so swinging voters should put Labor last at next month’s election. Cliff Winkler Torquay
Clear danger I COULDN’T agree more with the letter supporting the clearing of roadsides in Mannerim (Letters, October 15). The current state of our roadside in the same area poses very real financial and safety risks. Roadside trees that have previously fallen onto our fences have resulted in the cost of fence repairs. Far worse, the risk of stock escaping and wandering onto the road and causing an accident is of concern. As the recent letter stated: “People are more important than trees”. I also have witnessed trees in high winds fall onto the roads and require clearing. Furthermore, there is little room on
either side of the road for cars to pull over if necessary and the volume of cars using our street continues to increase. I support the thoughtful planting and cultivation of trees, having over 800 native trees planted on our small acreage. However, to be prevented from trimming or clearing undergrowth from the front of our property and which impacts adversely upon it and our neighbourhood is wrong. Chris Barnett Mannerim
Carbon cash-in THERE is a curious anomaly in messages being disseminated by the various authorities concerned. Greg Combet, latest environmental incarnation of the incumbent federal dictatorship, in a recent profile acknowledged a history in the coal business. Furthermore, he predicted a “bright future” for the coal business in Australia. If the carbon tax and climate change advocates are to be taken seriously then they must add to their equation this continuous coal/carbon production and the power users who will be forced to pay the carbon taxes. European experience has shown that polluters have made windfall profits due to free carbon credits. It is the end-user who pays. Given that GST is already paid on power bills and an extra tax is placed on power and water in the form of service charges, the constitutional lawfulness of these existing and imminent charges comes into question. Constitutionally, any item can be taxed only once and, given that the coal industry has been sanctioned with the full-steamahead mode, one can only assume that authorities are up for the biggest and most unlawful carbon cash grab in Australia’s history.

State fails to bridge credibility gap
Puppets: David Koch. nity acknowledges this opening has been brought forward to disguise that the project has run over time and blown its $40 million budget. Further, the Government’s plan for a competition to name the bridges is a devious attempt to divert attention away from
the disappointing outcome of two bridges replacing the existing crossing. Many names will no doubt be put forward. The suggested Bridges of Broken Promises would not be too far off the mark. After the disclosure of the Brumby Government’s 700strong spin doctor unit, is it any wonder it is going down this track in an attempt to reclaim support and credibility? The people of South Barwon won’t be duped. They have a right to expect better government and adherence to planning procedures rather than being used as political puppets by an MP who ignores them. David Koch MLC Member for Western Victoria Region
VICTORIAN families are suffering every day because of John Brumby’s incompetence but instead of fixing basic services he has built a massive propaganda unit with almost 1000 spin doctors working to cover up Labor’s failures. This is an obscene waste of taxpayers’ money when there are not enough funds for hospitals, trains, police, child protection or roads. This State Government has spent close to $1 billion every year since elected in 1999 on an army of spin doctors to make Labor look good. The Brumby Government is so arrogant it thinks it can fool Victorians by wasting taxpayers’ money on this huge propaganda unit to manipulate public opinion and cover up the failings of a tired, out of touch, incompetent government.

Force of fantasy ALAN Barron’s letter in the October 22 Independent was, as usual, entertaining, much in the way Disney’s Fantasia was entertaining. That is, in the realm of pure fantasy. In Australia, nuclear power may well be a viable alternative to coal. So we can all sit back safe in the knowledge that in the 10 to 20 years it will take, assuming work on these power plants starts today, to generate electricity that coal will magically stop contributing to a runaway greenhouse effect. As Mr Barron pointed out, CO2 is not a pollutant. Neither is dihydrogen monoxide, which is water. This is good to know because too much water is entirely harmless, even if you are under 25 metres of it. Until you try to breath. Ninety-seven per cent of Hazelwood’s pollutants are removed but, as we have seen, CO2 is not a pollutant. So the fact Hazelwood produces 17 million tonnes of CO2 a year and its state-of-the-art carbon capture plant removes 25 tonnes a day, leaving 16,990,075 tonnes, is irrelevant. It’s reassuring that observed increases in temperature, decreases in ice depths in Antarctica and increases in CO2 in the oceans etcetera are “nothing to worry about”. These observations can safely be ignored because the modeling grossly underestimated the actual events and physical changes that have occurred. I’ll finish by quoting Obi Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: “The force can have a strong influence on the weak-minded”. May the force be with you, Mr Barron Glenn Brady Leopold
Too late for sorry IN GENERATIONS past it was acceptable to remove Aboriginal children from their families, everyone thought smoking was great for you and it was a man’s responsibility to beat his children for wrongdoing. We can ask now: “What were these people thinking?” But chances are our own descendants will ask the same questions with the same bewilderment at our own greed and failure to do anything about the converging catastrophes the world is now facing, mainly due to our utter disregard for the well-being of the planet and our addiction to fossil fuels. I can imagine showing the letters completely against any action on climate change to my children. I’m sure they will want to know exactly who was responsible for our failure. We owe future generations the opportunity of a life in a livable world not depleted in resources rather than just complaining about how our Godgiven right to cheap electricity is being threatened and that looking at a wind-turbine is not like looking at a painting. In the future we might be able to say “Sorry, we didn’t know any better” or “We honestly thought it was a giant conspiracy but our intentions were good”. However, like the generations before us, we will be unable to undo the damage. I am prepared to say sorry if creating a more-equitable, sustainable and community-orientated world turns out to be unnecessary and especially sorry if it also causes power bills to go up a bit.

If you’re a working parent expecting a child after January 1st, there’s something else you can expect From 1 January 2011, Australia’s ﬁrst national Paid Parental Leave scheme will start. It’s a new entitlement for working parents, funded by the Australian Government. Taking time away from work for a new baby is a common part of working life. Paid Parental Leave will help parents spend time with a new baby, and help employers retain skilled staff. What is Paid Parental Leave? Eligible working parents of children born or adopted on or after 1 January 2011 may get 18 weeks Governmentfunded pay at the National Minimum Wage, currently $570 a week before tax, to help them care for a new baby. Am I eligible? Full-time, part-time, casual, seasonal, contract and self-employed workers may be eligible. You must have worked at least 330 hours (just over one day a week) for 10 of the 13 months before your new baby arrives. You can have up to an 8 week unpaid break between two working days and still be eligible.
You can earn up to $150,000 a year (individual salary) and still be eligible. Is it for both parents? Yes, usually the mother must apply for Paid Parental Leave. If you are eligible, you can transfer some or all of the pay to your partner (they need to be eligible too). The scheme gives families more options to balance work and family. When can I take it? You can claim up to three months in advance, and your pay can start at any time you choose from when your child is born or adopted. It will be paid in one continuous period from the start date and must all be taken within the ﬁrst year after the birth or adoption. You are encouraged to apply early.
What about employer-provided entitlements? Eligible parents can receive Parental Leave pay at the same time, before or after other employer-provided paid leave or entitlements. The existing minimum entitlement to 12 months unpaid parental leave for long-term employees is unchanged. What does it mean for employers? From 1 July 2011, employers must provide Government-funded Parental Leave pay through their usual pay cycle to eligible employees who have been with their business for at least 12 months. Other eligible parents will be paid through the Family Assistance Ofﬁce. Where do I ﬁnd out more? To learn more about Paid Parental Leave visit the website or call the appropriate number below.

THE TWO new bridges at Barwon Heads are being built against the wishes of many yet State Government and local MP Michael Crutchfield remain intent on gaining political kudos and photo opportunities from a pre-election opening on November 20 (Independent, October 22). This is despite the community and Government agency VicRoads proposing an opening date of December 4. It is not a coincidence that this Government, which has already demonstrated it is prepared to bend the rules and ignore parliamentary planning procedures, is now insisting the bridges must be opened during the caretaker period a week out from the state election. The Barwon Heads commu-
58,000 volunteers and 1600 staff to prepare for the season and to implement recommendations of the bushfires Royal Commission. CFA is a community-based, volunteer fire fighting force supported by career staff. A majority of the CFA board – including myself, are volunteer members. CFA services a huge part of metropolitan Melbourne and all country Victoria. In times of major bushfires it calls on those tens of thousands of volunteer firefighters. It is critical that this be maintained and grown. To service the ever-increasing growth areas and to meet service delivery standards, the CFA chief officer requested more career firefighters to support our volunteers. The CFA board approved that request and Government provided funding. Importantly, this funding was provided as over and above the existing CFA budget. Extra funding was also sought to support volunteer firefighting efforts and the Government provided $44 million to deliver more training for volunteer firefighters and additional staff for brigade support. We have seen an increase in volunteers and the board is committed to seeing this increased further – we know and respect the contribution they make to their communities. Kerry Murphy CFA chairman

Changing lives with charity
ollecting bras to aid Project Uplift for disadvantaged overseas women while raising awareness of their plight is nearly over, with three weeks down and one to go. The team at Contours Geelong has worked amazingly hard to help generate awareness for Project Uplift, which helps women all over the world avoid all sorts of issues through the collection and distribution of preloved bras. As many Independent readers will be aware, October is the month for Breast Cancer, with Pink Ribbon Day earlier this week on Monday. The Contours Geelong team has jumped on board to raise funds, with the ladies attending a closed screening of Eat Love Pray to raise funds. However, the team is most proud of the awareness its campaign has raised and the donations received for Project Uplift.
Contours staff show off the donated bras to help disadvantaged women overseas through Project Uplift.
The Contours women believe that the communityâ€™s support has demonstrated how charity does not have to be in just dollars and cents. The donated bras will go to change the lives of ladies all over the world in ways Australians could not imagine. Members of the Contours Geelong Project Uplift team thank donors for all their support. So far the campaign has raised over $2000 for Pink Ribbon Day and collected over 900 bras for
Project Uplift. Donors still have until Sunday to go into the draw for Bras and Things vouchers and Contours membership packs. Simply visit Contours East Geelong, corner Bellarine Highway and Wilsons Road, Ph 5248 5545, or Contours Geelong West, 2/131 Shannon Avenue, Manifold Heights, Ph 5229 8335.

Brian takes Kwiz on the road
On a roll: Brian Nankervis, centre, and co-host Julia Zemiro are on the road to the Queenscliff Music Festival.
BY ERIN PEARSON DURING suit-fitting in Prahran’s trendy Greville Street for an upcoming ARIA appearance, RocKwiz cohost Brian Nankervis announces he has “best job in the world”. He has just spent 10 months touring Australia with a travelling version of the hit SBS television show, which he hosts with Julia Zemiro. With RocKwiz now on the bill for next month’s Queenscliff Music Festival, Nankervis said taking the risk of putting the show on the road had paid off “10 fold”. “I think that because the show is a little rough around the edges it has an independent vibe and I think people really respond to that,” he said. “It’s all about connecting with your past.” RocKwiz debuted in 2005 as a live music trivia quiz program with a mix of celebrity teams, chat, music and comedy after Nankervis shot a pilot of his concept for the show in 2003. But Nankervis, who first found fame as loopy beat poet Raymond J Batholomeuz on Hey, Hey It’s Saturday, said RocKwiz got off to a rocky start. “It was wonderful but slightly tempered because they (SBS) said that, while they wanted the show, they wanted a host with an ethnic background. “That was a little disappointing but I thought I could either get on my high horse or we could make a TV show. I’ve now been the host for five
years.” The show has so far filmed 105 episodes at St Kilda’s Esplanade Hotel, with the travelling version adding a further 21 at venues from Darwin to Launceston. Nankervis said RocKwiz was a hands-on production. “Because the show is on SBS and has quite a small team we have a lot more control over what we do.” Nankervis said the spontaneous nature of RocKwiz had led to many “memorable” moments. “In Darwin someone in the audience lent on a switch, which we didn’t know about at the time, and a loud fire siren went off,” he laughed. “The band fled the stage but the audience was extremely relaxed and sat there for a very long time unconcerned by the fact the theatre could have blown up. They are very relaxed in Darwin.” “One of my most memorable shows, though, would be when Dan Sultan and Ella Hooper sung a Little Help From My Friends. It was a fabulous showbiz moment.” Complete with its own rock band, the AFI-award winning show features two musical celebrities and four contestants divided equally between two teams playing for only “the honour of winning”. Nankervis said the line-up of contestants to feature at Queenscliff was “top secret”, although big names such as Tim Rogers, John Paul Young and Angry Anderson had previously performed on the road show.

Off to market t’s Baby and Children’s Market time again. This is the last market in Geelong for 2010, so parents should avoid missing out on amazing bargains on new and used products. Baby and Children’s Market’s crafty mums have many gorgeous products for Christmas presents. The market is also a one-stop-shop for new toys, finding a baby naming ceremony celebrant, choosing a gym for getting back in shape after having children, buying maternity clothes and cloth nappies, finding a children’s photographer, picking décor for children’s rooms and purchasing funky hand-made clothes, nappy bags and hair accessories. The market’s large-items room has great deals on prams, pushers, cots, car seats, play pens, bicycles, change tables, etcetera. The market is strict on the quality of all goods, so it’s not a venue where stall holders are simply getting rid of junk. All stall holders are locals so money stays in Geelong, while the market also raises awareness for Geelong Area Multiple Birth Association. Entry is $3 for adults, with a free jumping castle and a sausage sizzle on site. The market is operating business as usual despite its location at Vines Road Community Centre undergoing redevelopment.

orth Geelong’s Sphinx Hotel is serving up some hot entertainment for diners throughout November. Julie Ramia-Siketa says the venue has secured tribute shows featuring the music of The King and The Voice. Elvis will step into the building on November 13 with lavish costumes and tracks from The King’s hit records. Elvis impersonator Mark Andrews will don the gold jacket, Jailhouse Rock outfit, legendary ’60s black leather threads and jewelry-clad Las Vegas costume on the night. Chain Reaction, a John Farnham tribute show, will feature on November 20. Tamworth impersonator Mike Vee says his “uncanny ability” to sound like The Voice Farnham accompanies digital technology and impressive sound and lighting effects. Vee will perform songs including Sadie, Age of Reason, One, Playin’ To Win, Raindrops and You‘re the Voice. Julie says fans should book soon to avoid missing out. The Sphinx also offers Pharaohs Bistro, a sportsbar TAB, a nightclub Friday and Saturday nights, a function room for up to 350 guests, hotel accommodation and a drive-through bottleshop. Families should also drop in to try the cuisine of new head chef

BY ERIN PEARSON WEARING facial hair is a bit like owning a pet dog, according to The Beards’ Nathaniel Beard. Any man with a beard must “take it for a walk like a dog to get the wind rushing through its hair”, he explained. Beard spoke to the Independent as his four-piece concept band continued travelling the world encouraging men to grow “serious” facial hair. The band had stood idle too long watching Movember participants simply grow moustaches, he said. “We formed The Beards to represent the bearded man, who often finds himself oppressed and that it’s harder to find work or a partner when simply doing what comes naturally. “Beards are natural and good and shouldn’t be associated with poor hygiene or criminal behaviour.” Nathaniel said the band wanted to shatter beard “preconceptions”. “We often see men at our shows chastising people with smaller beards but we say it’s not about the size of your beard, it’s that you have one in the first place that matters. “We must stand together in unity. The band asks that bearded people set a good example in the way they live their lives and look at helping ladies across the street and giving their time for the greater good.”
Beard said the band formed for a once-off performance in home town Adelaide to raise funds for Movember. The Beards had since travelled across Australia to the UK and America. “Over the past five years we’ve been spreading our message as far as we possibly can,” Beard said. The band’s achievements include performing at Alaska’s World Beard and Moustache Championships, recording two studio albums, releasing a DVD and earning national airplay with If Your Dad Doesn’t Have a Beard You’ve Got Two Mums. Beard said the Alaskan championships was a highlight. “It was great walking down the street because when you saw other bearded men you’d just nod at each other - it was like being in beard utopia. “It was the world we all dream of. We don’t just have beards, we live beards.” He explained the range of Beard styles including Ned Kelly, Musketeer, Alaskan Whaler and Mutton Chops “At the moment I have a full bush ranger-style beard and on either side there are two plats,” he said. “It’s Viking meets bush ranger.” The Beards play at Geelong’s National Hotel on November 6.

BY ANDREW MATHIESON A NEW charity program to teach kids appreciation for toys made to last will launch this weekend in conjunction with an annual Geelong exhibition of wood-turning skills. Barwon Valley Woodwrights’s Toys for Tots program will make plastic off-limits for participating children. Instead, the group will use woodcrafting, burning, carving to interest young minds. Toys for Tots organiser Graeme Lorimer said Barwon Valley Woodwrights members would oversee the program. “It will be a bit of a have-a-gokids, build-your-own-toys (session) and we’ll give you a hand if you like,” Mr Lorimer said. “We’ll have little bags of nails and make sure people can help them get things hammered together. “In some cases, for kinder kids it might just be a case of dobbing glue on a bit of wheels.” Mr Lorimer said the old-fashioned craft of toy making had “taken off like a rocket” in many local men’s sheds. “We’re just giving it a pilot run this year but in the future we hope they can have a painting section where they can texture it.” Mr Lorimer said a previously Barwon Valley Woodwrights pro-

We’re locals and we want to keep things local. “We can now use local suppliers and support local businesses and the local community better.

rganisers of the Rotary clubâ€™s Torquay Motor Show this Sunday are expecting a â€œdead-heatâ€? in one of the judging categories when a display of historic hearses will feature for the first time in the showâ€™s four-year history. Rotary club spokesperson Rob Harris said the hearse display was only confirmed this week as well as a new category for motor sport which will include sprint cars and racing specials. He said the show on Sunday, is a great family event, attracting some of the best-restored and modified cars, bikes and trucks in the area and from around the state. â€œThe first year was a wash out, the second year we got 220 entrants and last year 240 entries, so this year we are expecting an even greater variety and number,â€? Rob said. He said the annual motor show staged on the Melbourne Cup holiday weekend at the foreshore reserve on The Esplanade Torquay, brings more than 4000 spectators through the gates. The show is one of the bigger fundraisers for the Torquay Rotary club money and goes mostly to the local community. Entries are invited for vehicles in 24 categories from pre-1918 to best club team display. Among the special car marque sections include best MG and best Jaguar, Ford, Holden, European and American cars. Five categories for motorcycles

KARTING legend Remo Luciani has dashed the hopes of Geelong’s Dominic Albanese to win a Formula 100 Nationals at Corio on the weekend. The victory replicated Luciani’s first national championship victory 20 years ago at the same venue. “My first national championship win came at Geelong in 1990 in the International category, so I set myself a goal of trying to win this weekend,” he said. “The first time I drove the kart fitted with a Formula 100 specification engine a few weeks ago I got out asking myself what the hell I was doing this for at the age of 50. After the first day I was extremely sore, the second day not so bad and then this weekend I was probably half way back to the fitness I used to have when I won my last title at this level in 1995.” The Horsham driver remained unbeaten in his return to the highpowered Formula 100 category on his way to the seventh national title of his illustrious career. The victory made 50-year-old Luciani Australia’s oldest karting champion. He offered advice for younger competitors after his historic win. “This win didn’t just happen, I made it happen. I’ve always said you only get out of things what you put into them. “While everyone else was at home watching Bathurst,

And they’re racing: Kart racers take to the track at Corio on the weekend in national titles. Formula One and the Moto GP over the past few weeks I’ve been here doing laps all day long to get myself ready for this weekend.” Albanese won consolation when he finished first in a 200cc Super support category. Mentone’s Adam Hughes added another national karting crown to his ever-growing resume with victory in a Formula 100
Light category. Hughes said the title was a “big boost” to his place as a full-time competitor in a CIK Stars of Karting Series next year. “Without the help from the guys at Melbourne Kart Centre along with Remo Luciani, Karl Bond and Josh Brooker none of this would have been possible. It was a real team effort.”

sport EXCELLENT fishing conditions in the past week produced some quality captures. Joe Carmichael had perhaps the hottest session, landing nine snapper over 5kg each in 22 metres of water off St Leonards. Joe released all but two fish, with the snapper nailing his silver whiting baits. Nearby Chris and Lockie Scicluna missed a number of good runs but still managed a couple of nice snapper. Lockie caught his personal best, a 4.1kg fish, along with a nice gummy shark. Nolan Jones enjoyed similar results off Long Reef where he caught six fish to 4.1kg on pilchards and fresh squid over a four-hour session, with all the action just as the tide was running off from high. Clifton Springs always starts to fire up at this time of the year, most anglers catching one or two fish averaging around 5kg in the past week. Aaron Ball, Peter Faith and Danny Holt all returned with snapper over 5kg. The best snapper we saw was a 9.2kg snapper taken by Joel Martin close to the bend in the channel. Simon D’Antino and mate Aaron cast soft plastics near Wilson Spit on Sunday morning, catching snapper from 42cm to 5.5kg on Gulp minnows. Simon headed out later that afternoon with son Ryder who showed dad up with a snapper over 4kg. Adam Graham also found plenty of snapper taking soft plastics nearby along with flathead and pike. Aaron Hassett took brother Kane out on Corio Bay where just metres from the boat ramp they encountered quality flathead as well as salmon, pinkie snapper, pike and leatherjackets on soft plastics. I had a quick spin with small, baitfish-profile lures at North Shore rocks where I landed a number of pike. Most were small but I lost a couple of 80cm-plus fish at the rocks. The grammar school lagoon produced a variety of fish for Dylan Holmes whose berley trail among the moored boats attracted trevally and salmon along with two 45cm flathead. Swan Bay’s remained consistent for bag-limit captures
On the bite BRIAN LONG of squid, with small, dark coloured jigs working best during early mornings. The same area also rewarded patient anglers with whiting, leatherjacket and the occasional nice flathead. Queenscliff Cut produced trevally, snapper, Tommy rough and salmon on soft plastics. Bait anglers were less successful but still managed a fish or two. Hopefully common sense will prevail and anglers will be able to continue fishing this area as we did prior to construction of the marina. Dirty water continued to make fishing difficult in the Barwon River estuary, the only worthwhile time two hours prior to high tide. Surf fishing was generally good, with the best reports coming from Black Rock where snapper, trevally and whiting were caught, especially when using fresh squid baits. Offshore reports were hard to come by although snapper, gummy and school shark were around. The best fishing was in 20 to 30 metres off Collendina. The Barwon remained high and discoloured in Geelong, restricting captures. Anyone seeking trout would do best with lures at Buckley Falls or towards the junction of the Barwon and Leigh Rivers where the water quality has been clearer. Dean Wilkinson fished West Barwon Reservoir for a total of seven trout, the best just over 1kg. Dean took all his fish on Rapala X Rap lures. Lake Purrumbete continued rewarding anglers trolling with quality trout, the best for the week weighing over 4kg. Tassie Devils and Atomic Shads were the best lures. Lake Bullen Merri rewarded the Howard family 12 trout, all caught on Powerbait in the Lemon Twist colour. Most fish were small but a standout brown of 2.3kg made the day. Last Sunday’s Ron Nelson Junior Fishing Clinic at Seagull Lake in North Geelong attracted
Flat out: Weekly Shimano soft plastics outfit winner Kane Hassett with his Corio Bay flathead.
Lessons learned: Fishing clinic participants Alisha, Ella and Connor show off their catches. nearly 200 junior anglers. The number of trout caught was compensated with captures of eel and carp as well as a couple of redfin. Clinic spokesperson John Hotchin said the turnout was amazing and added that most of the 600 trout liberated for the event are still there for the taking so this will be a prime
fishery over the coming weeks. Send reports, photos and picture entries for the weekly $350 Shimano soft plastics outfit and to go into the draw for the Christmas $2000 prize pack of Shimano products to Brian at Ray Long’s Fishing World, 105 Shannon Avenue, Manifold Heights.
Top Cats lead pack GEELONG Cricket Club continued it’s unbeaten start to the season with a hard-fought win over Frankston Penninsula at home last Saturday. A half-century from in-form opener Matthew Harrison, scores in the 30s to Tom Elliott and Liam Buchanan and a late burst from Justin Foss with 23 helped the Cats set up a competitive 8/224 at the end of the split-45-over innings. In reply Foss also did the job with the ball, quickly reducing the Heat to 4/40 before it worked back into the game. Jeremy Hart bowled well at the death, taking two wickets before youngster Meyrick Buchanan claimed the final scalp with just three runs to spare. Tomorrow the Cats travel to Northcote for the final one-day match in this block of games. They will want to ensure they retain top spot with a buffer on the chasing pack. While East Belmont posted what should be a winning total of 311 in its match against Geelong West, the other matches of the round appear evenly poised going into tomorrow’s second day. Grovedale batted first against Lara at The Snakepit, posting a competitive 7/198. Chris Cruickshank top-scored with 55, while Rod Kiddle had 35 and Danny Hughes was the pick of the bowlers with three scalps. Tomorrow’s key will be the first session. Grovedale will need to strike early and put the Cats under pressure or the long Lara batting line-up will pounce on a fast outfield to take the points. St Josephs posted a slightly-lessthan-competitive total at home against South Barwon, finishing all out for 182 thanks mainly to a fine 92 from Ravi Ravee. For South Barwon, Jeremy Babb shone with five wickets from 25 economical overs. South Barwon will fancy its
Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE chances, particularly if Brad Hauenstein gets set, but Joeys has defended lower scores than this plenty of times over the years and won’t lay down without a fight. In division two Geelong City has already taken first innings points over Alexander Thomson and will sniff an outright result when they resume tomorrow. The Sharks showed all their division one experience as their bowlers destroyed the Vikings, dismissing them for just 62, with Adam Marsland taking 3/5 from seven overs and Kent Agg, Sam Parry and Jon Ball taking two cheap wickets each. In reply, City raced to 5/128 at stumps, with Shaun Cranny smashing 38. It’s hard to see City not taking outright points here. In another interesting result, St Peters racked up a mammoth 9/323, prompting ex-president Michael Timberlake to declare the Saints certainties to contest this year’s grand final. In the division three match of the round Teesdale will hope its 189 is enough in its important clash with Little River. Paul Baker top-scored with 35 and, while other batsmen got starts, none went on to post the total Teesdale would have hoped wanted, thanks mainly to Josh Baker snaring 3/65 and Adam Townsing taking 3/26. Todd Elsey holds the key with the bat for Little River.
