YOUR GUIDE TO PROPERTY, NEW HOMES INSIDE TODAY

It’s a Catastrophe Gazza goes as Bomber on the brink at Catland BY ERIN PEARSON A BLUE week has settled on Geelong Football Club with champion player Gary Ablett announcing his defection to Gold Coast Suns and doubts over the future of coach Mark Thompson. Wednesday’s announcement ended months of speculation over Ablett’s playing future after another blow the day before when two-time premiership coach Thompson told the club he was suffering “burn out”. Geelong chief executive officer Brian Cook acknowledged next year would “present a challenge”. “We want Mark to stay, Gary’s gone – he’s now the opposition,” Cook said. “Sure, we have a few issues at the moment but we’ll get through them. “We’re still a very strong club.” Cook said the club knew the introduction of the Suns and Western Sydney into the AFL competition would “entice” Geelong players to greener pastures. “We should see this as a compliment,” he said. Cook admitted Ablett’s announcement in Melbourne that he would leave the Cats was an emotional moment. “It did tug at my heart strings a bit.” Ablett said the Gold Coast’s salary offer of around $9.5 million over five years was attractive but reinventing himself as part of a new football team was “far more exciting”. “There’s been a lot of speculation around my future and everyone has had an opinion on what I should and shouldn’t do,” he said. “After three grand finals and two premierships I’m honoured to have achieved some amazing things with [Geelong]. “The decision I’ve made had been incredibly difficult to make. It’s time for a fresh, new challenge.”

Horrible job: Cats chief Brian Cook delivers the bad news. Geelong fans left comments on the Independent’s Facebook page pledging their support. “From what I’ve heard his family is up there, so I can understand why he would want to leave,” Emily Downling said. “However, his other family, the Geelong supporters, are here and will miss him greatly”. Tutran Duong said Albett’s decision “saddens me but it was inevitable”. “Instead of booing, we should be proud of his achievements”. The Cats will receive two firstround draft picks as compensation. Cook on Tuesday rejected reports Thompson would leave the Cats to join new Bombers coach James Hird at Essendon. The Cats had offered Thompson three months leave, Cook said. “The issue isn’t (whether) he goes to Essendon, the issues is (whether) he wants to continue coaching at all. The Cats also said goodbye to Frank Costa as president this week. Ablett played 192 games and won two premierships and a Brownlow medal with the Cats.

Heartbroken plea against violence

Wife’s agony

THE WIFE of an East Geelong footballer killed during grand final celebrations last year has issued a heartfelt plea against alcohol-fuelled violence. Victoria Police on Wednesday issued a public statement from Tara Alsop urging the community to remember: “It is never okay to use violence and there is never a justified reason for it.” Daniel Singleton, 30, was this week acquitted of the manslaughter of teammate Nathan Alsop, 37. Mr Alsop died after Mr Singleton punched him in the face at an East Geelong Football Club. A Supreme Court Jury heard Mr Alsop died when he hit the ground after a single punch to the side of his head. He had consumed 39 standard drinks over 13 hours. Mrs Alsop said her heart was broken again after this week’s not-guilty verdict. “Alcohol-fuelled violence is something that seems to be occurring more often in our society and we need to take proactive steps to stop this.”

Mrs Alsop called her husband “an amazing father” who would have done “absolutely anything” for his family and friends. She described Mr Alsop as a “remarkably patient man” with an infectious smile and an ability to love unconditionally. “The images of sitting with him on that football oval with a ventilator still attached and his eyes glued shut continue to haunt me,” she said. “The impact his loss has had on our children’s lives is immeasurable. “It is devastating to realise that all we have left are memories and photographs.”

Tragic: Tara and Nathan Alsop in happier times.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GRASSROOTS motor sport enthusiast clubs fear big business will squeeze them out of Avalon. Geelong Motor Sports Complex committee member Matt Prins said transport company Linfox’s push to develop a rival larger-scale facility nearby had “taken us by surprise”. “We’ve been talking to Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS) about this but had heard little until this report surfaced,” he said. Reports earlier this year said Linfox planned to build its com-

plex on a site adjoining Avalon Airport. CAMS had $130,000 in funding to investigate the feasibility of the complex. Mr Prins said a major motor sports complex would be welcome but was worried about a lack of consultation over the project. “We’re intrigued it’s come to this without consultation. We knew Linfox was keen to have a complex there on a grander scale. “People would lose interest in our facility if this went ahead. We would be forced to try and use the new complex.

“It would virtually mean closure of our current facility.” Committee president Graham Harrison said the group had a “good relationship” with Linfox. “We are not at loggerheads with anyone. I guess we have to wait and see what CAMS comes up with. “At the moment we are no clearer than anyone else. We just don’t want to suffer from what may happen without getting looked after.” A CAMS-commission report three years ago identified Avalon as ideal for a motor sports complex.

Cycle city: American Andrew Talansky turns into Moorabool Street during UCI racing this week. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 54130 erage would be at saturation point, with media representatives from 271 news agencies across 28 nations converging on Geelong. Organisers had accredited 40 television cameramen, 60 commentators, 117 photographers and 144 journalists, she said. Host broadcaster Network Ten had 141 staff on the ground to cover the five-day event for an estimated worldwide audience of 400 million. City of Greater Geelong expects an economic boost of $50 million from 300,000 spectators. Media manager David Culbert said organisers were pleased with the opening day. “The city of Geelong looks spectacular on television. We’ve received lots of comments on how good the television pictures look, which is one of the key

benefits of the event. “We’re happy with the crowds. It’s what we expected for the first day of competition. “The weather was a challenge for the riders more than anything else but that’s what makes road racing what it is. “Geelong people, generally speaking, have been enthusiastic about the event.” VicRoads’ traffic management centre reported some confusion amongst motorists on the first day of full-course road closures. “Geelong motorists appear to have picked up the closures pretty quickly because things ran very smoothly after the initial confusion,” a spokesman said.

A $5.3 MILLION library and “community hub” has moved a step closer at Waurn Ponds after the completion of preliminary design work, according to Geelong’s council. Councillor Andy Richards said the “really modern” facility would “meet the changing needs of our community”.

Tennis boost A $39,000 funding injection will help pay for two new synthetic courts at Torquay Tennis Club, Victorian Sport Minister James Merlino has announced. He said the replacement of bitumen courts would provide “safer facilities” for the club’s “growing” membership of 180.

Towns structured COUNCILLORS will seek ministerial approval on a new structure plan for Drysdale and Clifton Springs after approving the document this week. Among proposed development guidelines for the town, the structure plan calls for retention of rural living land around Drakes Road and backs a previous council decision to remove a long-term growth designation surrounding Drysdale’s Potato Shed community centre.

A PILOT and his teenage passenger have escaped with minor injuries after their light plane crashed on Surf Coast Highway between Geelong and Torquay. Police believed the pilot, a Malvern man in his 50s, was trying to land at Geelong Airport on the weekend when his plane clipped powerlines before crashing and bursting into flames.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG’S 2010 UCI Road World Championships got off to a slow start everywhere but on the track this week, according to traders and racing results. Australian under-23 time trialist Luke Durbridge set a fast pace early to score a silver medal but few spectators were on hand to watch his heroics. Intermittent rain showers scattered a few hundred taking in the novelty of a world cycling event. Traders did their best to capitalise on the event but said business was slow on the first two days. Camera House’s Brian Ibbotson said trade was down significantly, with residents keeping clear of the central city area due to road closures. He was hopeful businsess would pick up later in the week. Snowgum assistant manager Lauren Maxsted said sales were good, with overseas visitors browsing the store. “We had more people come in especially when the weather turned,” Ms Maxsted said. My Hair manager Julie Thomas said her trade was down, with many businesses she supplied also cancelling orders. “It’s a domino effect – they have no customers so they don’t need stock,” she said. “I know there’s a longer term pay-off but not for us. Bigger crowds are expected on Sunday but I won’t be open.” Phil Thomson, of Geelong Sports and Memorabilia, said the grand final draw had helped him survive the cycling event. “It’s quiet but so be it. If we want to put Geelong on the map, we have to be prepared to put up with a quiet week. “We’ve had a few tourists through but I don’t think they quite get Australian Rules football. “Hopefully it will pick up later in the week. I’m open Saturday and Sunday, so we’ll see what the crowds are like then.” Coverage of the event was widespread, with screens spread throughout central Geelong.

Medal push: Stretch Kontelj.

Reasonable idea: John Mitchell

Unwarranted: Michael Crutchfield.

Council medal push ridiculed BY KIM WATERS A GEELONG council push for a medal honouring long-serving councillors is “outrageous and self-serving”, according to a state MP. Member for South Barwon Michael Crutchfield said councillors should concentrate on their jobs rather than “unwarranted” honours. An email leaked to the Independent revealed the push for Federal Government to initiate the councillors’ medal. In the email to council colleagues, Cr Stretch Kontelj said the award should go to councillors who had served more than three consecutive terms. The honour should comprise a medal, a miniature, a lapel badge and a citation, said Cr Kontelj, who is Geelong’s longest-serving incumbent councillor. Mr Crutchfield labelled the pro-

posal “staggering self-interest”. “I would have thought there was a myriad more important issues for council to focus on than individuals trying to add to their collection of medals. “I served almost three terms on Geelong council and I think it’s completely unwarranted. “I suggest Stretch downloads something from the internet and puts it on a piece of cardboard if he wants an award for himself.” Mr Crutchfield said Australia Day honours were the “appropriate” forum for acknowledging councillors for their services. “Just because a councillor is there for three terms does not mean they’ve made a reasonable contribution to the community,” he said. “As the portfolio holder for major projects, (Cr Kontelj) should be concentrating on the Armstrong Creek hospital and railway station instead of this self-

serving style.” A City of Greater Geelong spokesperson confirmed council had submitted a motion seeking Municipal Association Victoria to consider the medal plan. The proposed award was a “minimum-cost recognition of the community services contributions of councillors”, the spokesperson said. The municipal association’s state council would consider the medal motion later this month. Geelong Mayor John Mitchell backed the proposal as a “reasonable idea”. “The length of service is probably something that needs to be determined by people other than us,” Cr Mitchell said. “It’s only a suggestion at this stage but it’s been put forward and I’m happy to support it.” The Independent was unable to contact Cr Kontelj for comment.

Children’s Week is an annual event celebrated in Australia during the fourth week in October, designed to celebrate and promote the importance of children and early childhood. 83 separate activities are being held throughout Geelong during Children’s Week. These focus the attention of the wider community on children, their needs and achievements.

THE FLOORING SPECIALIST

Geelong’s Family Flooring Team HARVEY NORMAN father and son team, John and Bevan Northwood, share two decades in flooring expertise. John has worked on the floor for 12 years that included taking over one of the Waurn Ponds store’s franchises. Bevan arrived at Harvey Norman already with strong door-to-door sales experience before dad hired his son. Soon after Bevan’s sales leadership was first trialed in Melbourne before relocating back to Geelong in charge of the Corio franchise.

“Sometimes if I have issues, I ring him and sometimes he knows more than what I do.”

“He loves selling,” John says of Bevan, “and he’s very good at selling.”

“At the time I needed a new job, I asked dad and he gave me one, and I enjoy it much more than I ever possibly thought.”

Bevan in turn compliments his dad for being an accessible role model. “We’ve had a very good team,” Bevan says.

“Experience and knowledge is of the highest level”

“Dad, since I was a kid, has always been a manager, so I sort of looked up to him in that way.” The Northwoods are still very close during business hours despite working either side of Geelong. John says they think nothing of discussing all aspects of the business. “We talk every day, maybe twice a day, about what’s going on, what’s he doing or I’m doing to see what we can do to improve sales and service,” he says.

EC IAL IST S TH E CA RP ET & FLO OR ING SP

Bevan went as far as to say flooring has given the two of them a more personal connection. “We never really had any similar interests – but working together did bring us closer together a bit more,” he says.

Both the Waurn Ponds and the Corio flooring franchises have an extensive range of carpets, a large selection of rugs, as well as the best quality timber, laminated or vinyl flooring. “A lot of those we are a leader in the industry,” John says “We bring our own carpet range in.” “We import our rugs in and we don’t follow everyone else. We use the Harvey Norman brand, which is well known for service and quality.” Bevan adds their “experience and knowledge is of the highest level”.

Teen duo conquers fundraising trek BY KIM WATERS TWO TEENAGERS have conquered a 400-kilometre school holiday walk from Drysdale to raise almost $20,000 for cancer research. A crowd of supporters, family and friends cheered seven-

teen-year-old Blaise White, of Drysdale, and cousin Zac Dodds, of Hamlyn Heights, as they walked their final 35 kilometres into Tomcumwal, New South Wales, on Wednesday night after 11 days on the road. Blaise said the walk was a

tribute to their grandfather who died from cancer last year. Blaise’s father, Phil White, was “incredibly proud”. “He’s always been a very determined kid and when he thought up this idea Zac joined in and they put it all together,” Mr White said.

Police from the station would investigate if they received complaints, Sgt Savickas said. A City of Greater Geelong spokesman said the City’s graffiti hotline had no record of reports about the Detroit Crescent attacks.

BY ERIN PEARSON RACIST graffiti has terrified the new owners of an Asian grocery store at Corio, according to an angry neighbour. Shane Bleazby said he was “fed up” with the violent threats scrawled on the store’s Detroit Crescent shopping strip and an adjacent toilet block. Mr Bleazby said the graffiti had “petrified” the store owners, who had young children. The couple took over the store two months ago, he said. Mr Bleazby believed the intent of the graffiti went beyond “childish vandalism and drunken idiots”. “The graffiti here has never ever been racial before – it’s only since the new store owners moved in,” he said. “These people don’t need to be

BY ERIN PEARSON WINCHELSEA and Lorne will benefit from a “fresh focus” on council, according to Surf Coast Shire’s newest councillor. Former councillor Ron Humphrey, of Torquay, has reclaimed his seat at council after a count-back of preferences following Lindsay Schroeter’s August retirement. Mr Humphrey told the Independent he was “thrilled”. He vowed to begin to work with Lorne and Winchelsea communities immediately under Mr Schroeter’s guidance. “There are a lot of areas I want to cast a very keen eye over,” he said. “I want to spend a lot of time in Winchelsea and Lorne and listen to people and take their concerns back to council. There are issues in these communities that Lindsay was very passionate about and I’m fairly confident I’ll represent them well.

“I’ll be going at least once a week to both places. I’ve made that commitment.” Mr Humphrey, who lost his 2008 reelection bid, pledged to try “fitting in” with his new colleagues after clashing with members of the previous council. “I want to tread very carefully and quietly and cooperate to the best of my ability but there are areas of concern as a councillor,” he said. “I have no doubt this is a completely different environment in council than when I was on last time so hopefully things will work out okay. “There have been a few people already who are happy to see me back.” Mr Schroeter congratulated Cr Humphrey, saying he would “look after” Lorne and Winchelsea. “I got on really well with Ron when he was on council, so I’m very happy he was re-elected,” Mr Schroeter said. “There’s no councillor in the former Winchelsea shire left, so I hope Ron can keep an eye on the area.”

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN STATE Government snubbed Geelong’s council when announcing approval for an ALDI supermarket in Geelong West, according to a councillor. Barbara Abley said the Government announced its green light for the development in media releases before even notifying City of Greater Geelong. The decision hamstrung a proposed council heritage control for the area. The Government also announced ALDI stores for Highton and Drysdale, with the company’s $6.5 million investment in the three supermarkets to create 180 jobs. Cr Abley said the first councillors and City Hall officers knew of the announcement was when journalists called seeking comment. “Nobody from the Minister’s Office has bothered to make contact. As yet, council and the City have not received any informal or formal notification,” Cr Abley said. “Why did we have to learn from individual journalists about the minister’s decision to green light all ALDI projects within our municipality?” Cr Abley said the lack of communication reflected the Government’s handling of the ALDI application. “Minister Madden made it plain in a letter to our CEO earlier this year that it would be expected that the City of Greater

Ignored: Barbara Abley. Geelong would accept his decision to personally handle the multiple application of the ALDI giant conglomerate in the guise of economic benefit and choice. “There was no discussion, limiting community engagement with the exception of one of his specially constructed independent panels. “Further, the Department of Planning and Community Development directed that the proposed ALDI store site in Albert Street (Geelong West) should be excluded from the heritage controls proposed in the original Ashby heritage amendment because of the minister’s interest. “This site was subject to a separate Ministerial process. Council ignored this directive and chose to be guided by the wishes of the community. “What a wasted opportunity to

do something really innovative on this site instead of the usual bogstandard, ugly box supermarket which will stand out like the proverbial sore toe among heritage-listed homes.” Cr Abley said Mr Madden had “tossed out” council’s interim heritage control because ALDI could not or would not incorporate it into the development. “The Geelong West community has strongly expressed its concerns about the impact on safety matters, traffic issues, devaluing of properties and negative community impact. “I urge all concerned residents to contact their local MPs to discuss this matter and to record their dissatisfaction with yet another of the planning decision debacles emanating from Melbourne.” Member for Geelong Ian Trezise said the lack of communication with council was disappointing. “If that’s the case, it’s a disappointment. Councillors should be provided with the information.” Mr Trezise said he was aware of some local concerns but they had to be countered with the “significant economic and consumer benefit, jobs and competition”. “A number of stringent conditions have been placed on the permit and will need to be fulfilled with council. “Some of those conditions, I believe, will satisfy the vast majority of those concerns.”

FROM THE SPECIAL PRICE OF

*

BY ERIN PEARSON AN OUTSPOKEN community representative overseeing management of Bells Beach expects to be refused reappointment after Surf Coast council approved a $3.8 million master plan for the surfing reserve. Bells Beach advisory committee’s Maurice Cole said a shire officer emailed committee members this week telling them their positions were “under review�. Mr Cole believed the shire wanted him off the voluntary committee after he publicly criticised the shire’s management of Bells, including sewage contamination. The Independent revealed last month that the shire later laid a police complaint of criminal damage against Mr Cole after he tried an “in-house repair on a drain at Bells. Mr Cole said he feared the shire also considered other committee

members “useless� and would overlook them for reappointment after they had signed off on the master plan. “What the shire wants to do is get people like me off the committee,� he said. “I live very close to Bells Beach and I’m there three times a day but the minute we signed off on the master plan we’ve been notified we may not be required. “We were supposed to be part of the implementation process because who has more knowledge than we have?� The email to committee members said the shire would seek nominations from “relevant tourist, surfing industry, government and other organisations�. “Some of you may wish to reapply to be community members,� the email said. Mr Cole, who is battling a cancer relapse, said he was “devastated� about the review.

Members were “satisfied� with changes to the final Bells master plan, including removal of a third car park, limits on bus access and toilet upgrades. Mr Cole also welcomed the plan’s proposed licensing scheme on tour operators and other users such as surfing events as a means of raising money to help pay for management of the reserve. Mr Cole and committee colleague Graeme Stockton previously criticised the draft master plan as threatening to turn Bells into a “theme park�, with extra visitors adding further environmental pressure. Surf Coast Mayor Libby Coker said the advisory committee helped develop the plan. “I’d particularly like to congratulate and thank the Bells Beach Advisory Committee for the hundreds of hours of volunteer work that has gone into the development of these plans�.

Geelong workers told: walk this way BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG workers will swap stilettos for sneakers this Friday morning as they take part in National Walk to Work Day. Target Australia signage manager Kirstine Wallis was looking forward to the five kilometre walk from her waterfront home to her company’s headquarters in North Geelong. “We all sit in front of computers, so the walk will be a good little motivator to get people more healthy,” she said. “It also helps start the routine and, for me, it’s a really good marker because it’s something I want to keep doing as the weather warms up.

City, Links to talk on course BY KIM WATERS COUNCIL will push for a fullsize nine-hole course in negotiations next week over the former Geelong Golf Club, according to a councillor. Andrew Katos said council wanted to broker a “suitable outcome” for the site with owner Links Living. Council this week deferred voting on Links’ new plan to develop a western parcel of the land for a par-three, nine-hole course with housing allotments and retirement units. The deferral followed State Government last month rejecting the company’s bid for a Woolworths hardware store on the eastern section of the course. Councillors have expressed

opposition to the par-three proposal after Links previously presented plans for a full-size ninehole course amid residential development. “We’ll be discussing with them the outcome the community wants, which is a proper, fullsized golf course,” Cr Katos said. “That’s the outcome we’d want to see but we don’t want to preempt anything.” Cr Katos said council now expected Links to be more willing to provide further information on its latest proposal after stonewalling council last month. Council had sought “clarification” on the retirement village component and public open space. “The information was not

forthcoming and we were thinking we’d have to go to VCAT but now they have decided to sit down with us and talk about it,” Cr Katos said. “They’re quite happy to sit down and get a resolution that’s not only good for them but also for the residents and the city.” Cr Katos said plans for the eastern parcel were “up in the air” after the Government knocked back the Woolworths proposal. Links Living spokesperson Ron Smith refused to comment. Links closed the course in 2004 after council rejected the company’s initial redevelopment plan. The company took over the land in 2003 after the golf club ran into financial problems and sold the course in 2002. 498129-KC39-10

Anger as trees ‘get the chop’ BY KIM WATERS A “KNEE-JERK� reaction to the Black Saturday bushfire disaster has wiped out hundreds of roadside trees on the Bellarine Peninsula and Surf Coast, according to conservationists. Surfers’ Environmental Protection Group’s Graeme Stockton said a Royal Commission report into the disaster had prompted Powercor to organise the lopping and poisoning of trees previously “lightly pruned� to clear room for powerlines. He blamed new State Government laws enacted in response to the Royal Commission recommendations. “The new legislation makes it unclear whether trees that were formerly protected by the flora and fauna guarantee act are still protected,� Mr Stockton said. “Now that local councils aren’t the authority on tree clearing it’s unclear who these companies should be seeking permission from and obviously they’ve taken that to their advantage.� Geelong Environment Council president Joan Lindros said 140 trees lost at Mannerim were “just the tip of the iceberg�. “The trees were in a signed biodiversity conservation area and the agreement in the past has been that Powercor cut off only the tops of the trees.� Ms Lindros said the environment council sought compensation for revegetation costs after receiving advice against taking legal action.

Picture: Tommy Ritchie 54039 “It appears we cannot sue Powercor for compensation and there will be no redress to replace the vegetation that has been destroyed.� Bellarine Landcare Group acting president Peter Beresford said the estimated cost of revegetation at Mannerim was $250,000. The group had contacted Geelong’s council, Department of Sustainability and Environment and Powercor more than two months ago about the new legislation but had not heard back, he said. “We’ve had no feedback at all about what is going to happen in the future and it doesn’t make any sense at all.� A Powercor spokesperson said an Electric Line Clearance Regulation code of practice allowed two metres of clearance

between powerlines and trees. But cutting down the trees to their base was “the most practical solution for the site�, the spokesperson said. “Vemco, the company we used to cut the trees, carried out an ecological study of the site. Both Powercor and Vemco try to minimise any disruption to local environment while meeting their commitment to keep a safe distance between powerlines and trees.� A City Hall spokesperson said contractors working for power companies in the area were “required� to notify council before clearing roadside vegetation. “Enquiries relating to the clearing of roadside vegetation are continuing.�

MS Mega Swim 27 and 28 November 24hr fundraiser for MS Australia Relay teams required Join us for dinner on 2 November for a MS Mega Swim information meeting.

A MOTORISED scooter called Ruby and a black Labrador named Chevy have become a familiar sight on the streets of Barwon Heads at this time of year. Both are driven by Jenny Kerr on her annual mission – doorknocking for the Heart Foundation appeal. But getting out and about is a challenge for Jenny – she has severe rheumatoid arthritis, which is why she scooters about the coastal town. Jenny has suffered the affliction since she was 18. She has undergone operations and put up with the resulting lack of balance and inability to walk any significant distance, especially on uneven ground. However, the arthritis has failed to stop Jenny, who has embarked on her third annual rounds as a doorknocker for Australia’s leading heart health charity. Jenny has also fired up Ruby for other doorknocks such as the Red Shield appeal and for diabetes fundraisers. But it’s the Heart Foundation that has captured her – well – heart. The community-minded 56-yearold has a very personal reason for making the effort. “My mother died several years ago from cardiovascular disease,” Jenny confides. “My husband Gary had a double

Picture: Tommy Ritchie 53899 bypass operation in 2001 and, thankfully, he is now doing very well. “Making a contribution eases the pain. There’s not a day goes by when I don’t think of mum. “I’ll never forget but it makes things a bit easier. “Because of those experiences, I’ve always tried to have an active and healthy lifestyle. “I also think that what the Heart Foundation does is pretty good. The message speaks for itself – it high-

lights the importance of being healthy and getting out and exercising. “I’m restricted to the scooter most of the time, but it’s important to get out and about no matter what your circumstances.” And that’s just what Jenny does, along with Chevy who sometimes carries the donations bag for her. “Doorknocking allows me the chance to be active and to get out and say hello. It does me good,” Jenny said.

“Sometimes if I’m having a bad day I don’t get out of the house. It can be easier sometimes to not even bother.” Jenny recalls losing her last dog, Brock. “You can be down in the dumps and sometimes feel so many little things are out of reach but the doorknock gives me an incentive to get out.” Jenny manages to negotiate some not so scooter-friendly terrain, has duelled with cars in driveways and even dealt with a paint-splattered donor who was in the middle of some renovations. The pair is a popular team and Jenny’s neighbours are supportive of her efforts. “It’s nice when I get out and a lot of people in the street come over because they know I’m doorknocking for the Heart Foundation,” she said. “The community is great. There’s always a collection of some sort going on but everyone is aware of the Heart Foundation and thinks of it as pretty important. “People expect me at a certain time of the year.” Heart Foundation chief executive officer Kathy Bell, said the Doorknock Appeal relied on volunteers like Jenny. “Most of our funding comes from donations from the public and is essential to helping reduce the suffering and death caused by heart disease in Australia,” Kathy said. “This appeal is the largest community-led fundraising program for the Heart Foundation and we couldn’t do it without people like Jenny.” Jenny will still be donning her official Heart Foundation volunteer collector badge for the next couple of weeks. People wanting to make donations but who miss Jenny on her rounds can still visit www.heartfoundation. org.au/doorknock.

UNLESS State Government has passed special legislation exempting City of Greater Geelong from legal action over losses from the UCI cycling championships there should be no reason why traders and other aggrieved parties should not bring litigation (Independent, September 24). For our esteemed local papers not to query this notion is inexcusable. Council trades as a corporation, so therefore it could be sued. The claim by City projects recreation general manager Dean Frost that traders cannot seek compensation needs specific and detailed clarification as to legal specifics and/or State Government exemptions. If State Government has made an exemption then its continual moving of the goalposts should be scrutinized at election time. Council may well intend to make a profit out of this event but it should not be at the expense of other ABN-holding traders and should be obliged to disclose relevant financial information to aggrieved parties and the public. After all, the job of corporations is to make profit and, as the taxpayers of Geelong do not hold shares yet finance council’s activities, a detailed explanation may be necessary given council’s use of residents’ taxes and possible taxpayer loss of finance due to reduced turnover. Mr Frost’s claim is highly spurious and possibly aimed at deterring financially-aggrieved entities from making claims for redress as provided for under law. Council funds are not there for the indulgence of councillors’ favourite peccadillos. Gary Oraniuk North Geelong

I THINK it’s stupid how road closures around Geelong’s central area have just about hemmed in everyone. This is the most stupid thing Geelong’s council has agreed to. Who really cares about the cycling race? The closures have really put out a lot of residents, especially elderly people. It seems the organisers have not taken into account the feelings of residents. Did we get a vote on whether we wanted it through our town? No. It has caused businesses to cut their hours or close during the race. My doctors have limited their hours simply because no one can reach them because they’re in the city. This is a real botch up for the people of Geelong. Janice Larkins Geelong West

I CAN’T believe that City of Greater Geelong is supporting the UCI Road Cycling Championships after killing off the fabulous, historic Geelong Speed trials, claiming it caused way too much disruption to the central city area. What a bunch of hypocrites. The speed trials were run on Ritchie Boulevard, attracting enormous crowds of pedestrians to the Eastern Beach foreshore area. The trials were perhaps the best motoring event I have witnessed. Unlike the UCI cycling, the speed trials did not require the entire shutdown of central Geelong and major roads. Why won’t City of Greater Geelong bring back the speed trials? Fabian Sbrissa Ocean Grove

Watchdogs wanted I THANK the Independent for its story last week about the Surfcoast Community and Ratepayers Association. I also thank Ron Humphrey for trying to keep the organisation going. The association fulfils a necessary role speaking up for ratepayers. Unfortunately, in recent years the organisation has been in decline. This may be due to my management style, which is why I have resigned as president. This year, after two attempts to appoint office bearers, we are unable to function. It is disappointing that in times of uncertainty about the direction of Torquay ratepayers cannot get together to shape just where we want to go in the future. One meeting a month does not seem an onerous chore. However, we can’t exist without office bearers who are our engine room. We need several people who will put the time in to draw this community together. We need to hear from any readers with an interest in where our society is heading Spencer Leighton Torquay

I READ with concern a report in the Independent’s September 17 In Brief column about a fish kill in the Anglesea River. The EPA blamed this on nature, saying recent rain washed acid sulphate soils into the river – sulphuric acid, in fact. Acid sulphate soils are not surface material but come from the sub-soil, so clearly there must have been some substantial clearing and exposure of these soils for the rain to have caused the contamination resulting in fish deaths. Unfortunately, once acid sulphate soils have been oxidised the situation cannot be undone, although remedial action in the form of liming and revegetation of the disturbed area may help. CSIRO has done some work on acid sulphate soils in the Geelong area and should be consulted on the identification of the geographical area of such soils so they are not, in future, interfered with. I advise Anglesea residents to be proactive in this matter and request further action from the EPA in the testing of local soils and the current state of the Anglesea River. Unless this is done, such events will reoccur and the river will become too dangerous for humans and fish. Gillian Walker Portarlington

Flush with care IT IS becoming increasingly urgent that the Anglesea River is properly cared for, including the draining and flushing of water killing fish. In a two square metre area adjacent to the bridge 10 to 12 dead fish were visible on September 19. A long-established home in Bingley Parade has been undergoing underpinning to avoid further sinkage. I asked Surf Coast Shire months ago to treat the river more kindly but was told the water level would be kept high for the benefit of the boating fraternity. Freda Tarr Anglesea

LAST week’s letter to the Independent from VicHealth’s Todd Harper, headlined ‘Assault on salt’, was good advice. However, we need to look further to what is affecting our health. In this age there are many questions to be asked about what is causing all our symptoms. One of the basic commodities is water and here we have a State Government that has polluted our water supply with industrial waste, fluoride, in the belief it will reduce tooth decay. Overwhelming evidence shows this is harmful to our health but the Government continues to ignore documented evidence of the danger. It is quite a strange scenario when it appears the Government, which includes our local members of parliament, refuses to discuss or debate the issue. There is good reason to suggest the Government thinks silence is its best defence. We also now have some local GPs who will confide with patients that fluoridation is dangerous and who accept it can affect vital organs. They cannot speak out publicly because of reprisal from colleagues and the dental profession. The issue of fluoridation is not gone or forgotten. The way the Brumby Government treated the community will become a major issue in the coming state elections. KW Oakley Independent candidate for South Barwon

Alive and kicking NEWCOMB Senior Citizens Centre recently experienced a change due to a lack of people to replace retiring committee members. At its annual general meeting, the centre decided to hand management to City of Greater Geelong, leaving a reduced administrative role for the committee which is now an effective and functioning group. However, rumours that our club is closing are discouraging potential new members from attending. The Newcomb Senior Citizens Centre continues to provide a comfortable, safe

environment for seniors to enjoy indoor bowls, bingo and cards as well as lunch days with guest speakers and coach trips. Film and craft afternoons have also proved popular. Membership is rising, new activities are being introduced and the new management arrangement is satisfactory. New members are welcomed into a happy group. Stan Roberts Newcomb Senior Citizens Centre

Cold on tax MARIUS Kloppers and Julia Gillard want to fight global warming by sticking Australians with a carbon tax. But serious global cooling is in the way, so how will their tax keep us warm and fed? Their advisers should know the 300-year warming trend from the quiet Sun of the Maunder Minimum is over and so is the Modern Grand Maximum (MGM) of hyperactive Sun. The 11-year sunspot cycles during the MGM averaged only 362 spotless days between cycles. In 2004 NASA predicted that solar cycle 24 would begin in early 2006, peak in 2010 and be extra-strong. But cycle 24 still can’t get going, with an amazing 809 spotless days so far, including 41 in 2010, with two this month. History shows that an extra-late cycle will be extra-weak. A third of the population of Europe is said to have died in the killingly cold Maunder Minimum from 1645 to 1715 and it is predicted a new Little Ice Age look-alike is well on the way. How will that carbon tax help us? Bob Foster Queenscliff

Outside the nutshell BY ERIN PEARSON “NEW THINGS” are always tempting Melbourne band Little Red, according to member Quang Dinh. “No nutshell fits us,” he said “Some bands are stuck in one genre. I feel like it’s a little bit boring and a little self-indulgent to think you’re on a good thing. With us, we just want to keep trying new things.” Dinh was speaking to the Independent while preparing to play in Geelong this month after a “whirlwind” tour with British band Kasabian. Spruiking the band’s latest album, Midnight Remember, the singer and bass player said the Melbourne-based group would bring a combination of gospel, Mowtown, indie and ’70s rock and roll to town. The influences all rolled off different pens of band members as they wrote Little Red songs, he said. “If you’re writing different kinds of songs you get a broader absorption of music and you see the possibilities – and they’re infinite. “Dom’s a classic kind of pop song writer; Tom’s got some ballads but more of a rock and roller attitude with tight pants and fists in the air and, for me, I like Bob Dylan, the feel-good songs. Formed in 2005, Little Red featured on Triple J Unearthed before winning a 2008 Garage to V competition. The band has since performed at festivals around Australia. “It’s pretty amazing because, as a kid, Big Day Out was the mega festival where you would lose your mind in rock music with 100,000 people there, that kind of deal,” Dinh said. “Being on it was a dream come true but the bigger dream, the more important dream, is to write really good music.

On stage: Claymore in action.

Celtic Claymore set to be a blast BY ERIN PEARSON CELTIC rock band Claymore will perform tracks from its fifth studio album at Geelong’s The Studio this Friday night. The Scottish and Irish influences on Reflection blend with rock classics such as a version of AC/DC classic Long Way to the Top stretched out to eight minutes with a full bagpipe interlude. Lead singer and band manager William Hutton admitted traditionalists often turned up their noses at Claymore. “In some circles we get frowned upon,” he said. “Real traditional people think you should never play it like that, whereas other people think it’s a natural progression to rock it up a bit and get a bit more modern and attract a new audience.” Hutton believed the new album was “by far” the band’s best after 12 years together. “The reason we called it Reflection is because it’s a reflection of what the band is now as opposed to what we used to be. “When the band started it was just a duet of traditional folk music, so it has progressed a lot since.”

Many influences: Little Red will play songs off its latest album in Geelong this month. “We don’t want to be a flash band. We want to do Little Red will play at Bended Elbow on October stuff until we can’t any more.” 22. The band’s 2008 debut album, Listen to Little Dinh was looking forward to the gig, describing Red, spawned radio singles Coca Cola, Witchdoctor Geelong as “kind of homely in a rougher way than and Misty I. you get in Melbourne”.

Town Square opens at centre arwon Health Foundation often receives donations in appreciation of the care provided by Barwon Health. In late 2005 an exceptional $2.1million bequest to the McKellar Centre was in recognition of the care provided to the generous benefactor’s loved one. This extraordinary donation, along with the support of volunteer groups, staff, fund raisers and charities, has ensured the development of the centre’s Town Square where patients and their families can enjoy the outdoors in the midst of a state-of-the-art aged care and rehabilitation facility. Set to officially open next Wednesday, the Town Square comprises professionally landscaped gardens, a water feature, sitting areas, barbeque facilities and a Disney play area for children.

It is widely regarded as one of the best aged care and rehabilitation service providers in the state and it is certainly a showpiece.”

Cheapest Waterfront Homes in Australia A

n absolute waterfront village on the Bellarine Peninsula situated only 9km from the heart of Geelong is offering possibly the cheapest waterfront homes in Australia! Selling from just $130,000, Pelican Shores Estate, a secure, friendly and established community for the mature aged, not only offers a range of new homes but has newly available home sites that are situated a stone’s throw from the water’s edge. If you can picture yourself relaxing on the deck of your brandnew home enjoying the beautiful waters of Corio Bay, being the envy of all your friends, then Pelican Shores Estate could be the place for you. Like many baby boomers heading towards retirement, you may be at the stage where you are starting to consider your future lifestyle. This is a major life decision and, after considering all the options available, more and more baby boomers are making the move into over-50s lifestyle villages like Pelican Shores Estate. At Pelican Shores you can enjoy an amazing waterfront location, downsize to hassle-free living and become part of a vibrant, active and like-minded community. You may also be able to free up extra cash to spend on the more enjoyable things in life like travel. Another big attraction of this lifestyle option is the variety of designs and styles of manufactured homes from which to choose. Where established

retirement villages often have homes that are already built and the buyer has no real opportunity to customise the design, a Pelican Shores Estate home is built in a quality controlled factory and can be easily personalised to reflect your individual tastes and needs. That means you can specify exactly what you want in your new home. An important feature for many new residents at Pelican Shores Estate is that their manufactured home and residential site has been designed to require the minimum of maintenance, leaving you free to enjoy the wonderful waterfront lifestyle on offer.

you can lock up your home, hook up the caravan

We asked Andrew Hoffman of Hampshire Property Group, which is a supplier of manufactured homes to resorts in NSW and Victoria, why anyone would buy a manufactured home in a lifestyle village rather than a place in a retirement village. “That’s easy,” he answered. “When you buy a manufactured home in a lifestyle village there are minimal additional costs involved and the home design can be tailored to your specific needs. You may also be eligible for Commonwealth financial assistance and it makes better financial sense because you can avoid the additional cost of deferred management fees. In fact, the better question to ask would be, ‘Why buy in a retirement village?’”

Tour fun with Grey Outdoors he Grey Outdoors offers retired Geelong residents comfortable and intimate tours teamed with exceptional customer service. Avid traveller Margaret Clarke, who toured Queensland’s Tannum Sands with The Grey Outdoors, praised the leisure tour company. The 82-year-old attributed the company’s success to The Grey Outdoors’ “fantastic” owner and operator, Kate Storr. “I can’t praise her enough,” Margaret says. “Nothing was too much trouble for Kate and the tour was fantastic. “Everyone got along really well and I think that was entirely down to Kate – she’s a very diplomatic person and can cope with any situation.” Margaret says the tour company sources the “best” motels and restaurants and offers a range of activities to suit elderly passengers. “You also get some free time to explore the place by yourself – it’s very well balanced,” she says. “I highly recommend The Grey Outdoors and will be travelling with Kate again.” Margaret says the company provides door-to-door passenger pick-up, which takes the hassle out of travelling. Passengers travel abroad a comfortable 12-seater bus with high-back seats, dual air-condi-

George says he built the neighbouring Newcomb Nursing Home in 1971 and Whitehaven 20 years ago. When Whitehaven was completed, George brought in renowned cytogeneticist, pathologist and educator Dr Margaret Garson OBE to open the home.

Four suites have their own sitting rooms. George says anyone contemplating moving into aged care can try the facilities by staying for respite or a short time and experience life at Whitehaven before they commit to permanent living. “We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, as well as morning and afternoon tea and supper. Breakfast can also be served in rooms but we encourage residents to come to the main dining room for all other meals and refreshments,” George says. A happy hour is also hosted at 4pm each afternoon to encourage residents to socialise together.

Sunrise shines on new choice emand for a new kind of aged care lifestyle has at last seen the arrival of Sunrise Supported Living Communities. These relatively new communities combine the best advantages of retirement villages and nursing homes to provide a new and very welcome choice for seniors. In a supported living community residents buy and have leasehold title to their own home — as in many retirement villages. Unlike a retirement village, residents also have access to various levels of personal care and nursing care but this is provided in the privacy of their own home - a choice just not available in traditional aged care facilities. This means that residents can age in place — and should never have to move again. “A supported living community like Sunrise really is the aged care choice that seniors wanted,” said the man behind Sunrise Supported Living Communities, director Peter Leschke. “Our residents stay as independent as they can possibly be while enjoying peace of mind from knowing that in-home care is available to them when needed. “Just as importantly, loneliness becomes a thing of the past. “Residents make great friends and neighbours here and can join in our active social scene if they wish to. It’s their choice.” Acquiring one of these homes is surprisingly easy. As with a retirement village, there is no need for asset testing or income testing, nor do buyers need ACAT assessment on entry, which is required in nursing homes. Each home is completely self-contained with kitchen, lounge and dining, single or double bedroom, bath room, laundry facilities and inbuilt emer-

D

gency response systems. Fully qualified carers and registered nurse are available when needed to provide care in the resident’s own home. In the past, elderly couples had to face the anguish of separation if one partner needed nursing home care. Happily, this is no longer the case since Sunrise Supported Living Communities offer the ability for couples to stay together in their own home, even if they need different levels of care. As the name suggests, Sunrise Supported Living Communities do provide a social community — with the leisure centre facility being the vibrant, friendly hub. The community dining room is always popular, with fresh, nourishing meals available whenever residents don’t feel like cooking at home. “Australians have always been very innovative. With supported living communities, we are helping to pioneer the world’s best aged care facilities. Any way why shouldn’t we? Our parents deserve the best.” For seniors who want a new kind of aged care, a balance between independence, security, care and assistance, as well as the lifestyle options they have always expected — Sunrise Supported Living Communities could be the perfect choice. Sunrise opens on October 16, with everyone welcome to discover all the benefits of a life within this wonderful community Food and entertainment will be provided along with tours to inspect the alternatives to traditional aged care. Other drawcards will be guest speakers and raffles with fantastic prizes, including a chance to win a care and food package to the value of $5000 when securing an apartment at Sunrise Grovedale.

MAP path to growth in savings he recent economic downturn has meant that some people are understandably looking for a simple and safe way of growing their money and saving. But Greg Crawford, of M.A.P Financial Solutions, says an ideal tax-effective savings strategy for many people is through investment, or “growth”, bonds. “This is a long-term investment where tax is paid on the investment’s earnings on behalf of the investor, unlike other managed funds where any income and capital gains is taxed once the money is a person’s hands,” Greg said. “Growth bonds are ideal for people looking for a set-and-forget savings plan outside superannuation to help them achieve their long-term financial goals.” Greg said that money could be

reduce the tax effectiveness of earnings. “People don’t need a lot of money to start their growth bond, generally $1200 or around $100 a month is enough,” he said. “There is also a choice of different investment options, ranging from a capital guaranteed bond for those who prefer to play it safe, to balanced bonds that hold a range of investments or higher growth options which invest in property or shares.” Greg said growth bonds were a popular way for parents and even grandparents to save for their children’s or grandchildren’s future school or university fees. • Any advice given is general only and has not taken into account individual objectives, financial situation or needs.

BARWON TYRE CENTRE is looking to raise up to $10,000 for the Camp Quality Escarpade charity fundraiser. Owner Graeme McMahon and two mates, Mal Stewart and Con Sheahan, wanted to give back to the community. “It was something that my friends and I always wanted to do,” he says. “It’s very much like the Variety Bash.” Camp Quality’s aim is to ease the pain on kids and burden on families suffering from cancer with weekend camps and day trips away. The Barwon Tyre Centre staff is raising sponsorship and donations before the outback trip through New South Wales and Queensland between October 16 and 23. Belmont Tyre

Centre kicked off the campaign donating $1000 to the cause. Graeme has personally raised a further $2500. “I got a pot at home, I put gold coins in it and you’ll be surprised how it adds up,” he says. Belmont Tyre Centre has collection tins on the premises and receipt books for any large donations. Other businesses that donate hundreds of dollars to Camp Quality Escarpade will get the right to have their name on the car. “Their names stay on the car all year,” Graeme says, “and the car is always used around Geelong because it is one of our company cars that we always use.” For more information, go to campquality.org.au/escarpade

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

Contours aims to help women he girls at Contours Geelong consider charity as more than just and dollars and cents, so they have aligned themselves with a new fundraising venture in which filling the fundraising charity cup takes on a whole new meaning. Last year the team at Contours Geelong discovered Project Uplift, a charity that truly helps women all around the world. Project Uplift relies on donations of bras of all shapes and sizes for countries and communities to make a difference in ways people from the developed world struggle to imagine. Sam Jones, of Contours Geelong, says the project has many health and social benefits for women all over the world. “Aside from the obvious health benefits associated with proper support, the thing that really

caught our eye was the website of the maternity lingerie brand Hot Milk and its support of the charity Knickers for Africa,” Sam says. “They explained that in some countries underwear was seen as a sign of prosperity and for those who could not afford such a luxury the physical and sexual abuse they could possibly be subject to because of their social standing could not be ignored. “Bras for us are such a simple thing but can provide these ladies with some security against abuse and assault.” During October Contours Geelong West and Contours East will collect bras for Project Uplift. Last year Project Uplift spokesperson Liz suggested that larger, black bras were preferred because they were being sent to Pacific islands but donations of all colours and sizes were appreciated.

“My husband thinks that this is a great chance to get rid of what he calls my fantastic beige delights but who cares what he thinks,” Sam laughs. In conjunction with the Geelong Independent, the girls at Contours East (Newcomb) and Geelong West will happily accept any donations. They will enter donors into a draw for a prize pack which includes a 12-month Contours membership and a $150 Bras and Things voucher. There are two prize packs available, valued at more than $900 each. Women can donate their unwanted bras at Contours Geelong West, 2/131 Shannon Avenue, phone 5229 8335, or Contours East Geelong, on the corner of the Bellarine Highway and Wilsons Road, Newcomb, phone 5248 5545.

Located near the centre of Geelong, with access to public transport, our Clinic has a number of accredited psychiatrists and a multidisciplinary team. Our programs are aimed at helping people improve their emotional and psychological well-being.

New treatment combats depression revolutionary new treatment for depression called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) combats the severe symptoms of debilitating depression, giving hope to patients who have lost faith in recovering. The Geelong Clinic is now using TMS to help patients overcome depression. The treatment stimulates parts of the brain to help shut down distressing emotions, with favourable patient outcomes since commencement. Program director and psychiatrist Dr Ajeet Singh says TMS represents “major advances in neuroscience”, improving clinical outcomes for severely depressed patients. “Unlike traditional shock treatment, no anaesthetic is required. Patients sit comfortably in the chair and a highly focused magnetic field is used to stimulate brain activity”, Dr Singh says. TMS alters the activity levels in some patients, apparently without side effects. Conducted on conscious patients, TMS is considered a non-invasive alternative to electroconvulsive therapy (ECT). The program involves daily treatments for inpatients of two to four weeks duration For more information phone The Geelong Clinic

Headspace to ask: R U OK? H eadspace Barwon is calling on Geelong to support people with mental health issues on October 7 when the organisation promotes its R U OK? initiative. Headspace Barwon manager Toni Van Hammond says the event will run in conjunction with Mental Health Week to promote the importance of friends, families and businesses supporting people suffering a range of mental illness conditions. Toni says early intervention can help save lives. “More than one million people in Australia experience depression, anxiety or related alcohol and drug problems each year and research shows 75 per cent of these disorders begin before the age of 25 years.

“The problem is 70 per cent of young people don’t seek help.” Toni says workplaces in particular must educate themselves on supporting their staff. “Depression is currently the leading cause of non-fatal disability in Australia but only three per cent of the population identifies it

as a major health problem. “Each year undiagnosed depression in the workplace costs $4.3 billion in lost productivity because on average every fulltime employee with untreated depression costs an organisation $9665 a year.” Toni says mental illness is no indicator of a sufferer’s capability or future. “Many people live with a mental illness can work and act as aparent effectively. “The questions we are asking is what would you do if you had someone come to you stating they have a mental illness. “Please take a moment to reflect and join us in ensuring more of our community is okay on October 7.”

Park-ability: Exiga’s compact body makes it easier to park than the usual Sports utility vehicle (SUV).

Exiga is a 6-seater BY ERIC BLAIR SUBARU has joined the people mover market with a six-seat adaptation of its Liberty sedan called Exiga. It’s taller and squarer than Liberty to maximise occupant and luggage space. Exiga’s compact body makes it simpler to drive and park than an SUV and it will also use less fuel. Exiga’s chief competitor is likely to be Honda’s long-running Odyssey, though buyers of vehicles such as Ford Territory and Toyota Kluger may also be interested. While most of its competitors have seven seats Subaru Australia decided that it would only import six-seaters because the absence of a lap-sash seatbelt in the centre seat of the second row would prevent the Exiga from getting the maximum five-star rating for occupant protection in Australian NCAP testing. Standard equipment in the Liberty Exiga is generous. All models get alloy wheels, dual-zone air conditioning, six CD audio, a DVD entertainment system with wireless headphones, and a leather wrapped steering wheel with audio controls. The upmarket Exiga Premium adds full leather trim, power operation of both front seats, satellite navigation (but this pulls the audio system back to a single CD unit), Bluetooth compatibility, the alloy wheels are 17 inches in diameter instead of the 16 inches of the Exiga 2.5i. Safety is looked after by all-wheel drive, ESP (Electronic Stability Program), ABS brakes with Brake Assist and six airbags. We managed to fit six moderately tall Australians into the Subaru Exiga

and all found they had enough legroom. However, the Subaru designers have deliberately restricted the rearwards adjustment of the front seats to make space for people sitting behind them. There is plenty of headroom in the front seats, with slightly less, but still more than enough in the other two seating rows. Power comes from the same 2.5litre ‘boxer’ petrol engine as installed in the Subaru Liberty. With 123 kW of power, and 229 Newton metres of torque at 4000 rpm it’s a sensible powerplant. During the drive program in Canberra as part of the press launch of the new Exiga, we found the engine gave the vehicle decent performance without being in any way exciting. It pulls well up hills and provides plenty of grunt for safe overtaking. Transmission is by Subaru’s new design of continuously variable transmission; it has six preset ratios for conditions where drivers feel they know better than the computer which ratio is required. The latter are controlled by the central lever or large paddles behind the steering wheel. Ride comfort is good as the designers have deliberately leant in the comfort direction in the eternal comfort/handling compromise. Some of the initial testing of Liberty Exiga was done in Australia a year ago to help engineers tailor the suspension to our local roads and driver preferences. Warranty is three years with no distance limit.

Seating: While most of its competitors have seven seats Subaru Australia decided that it would only import six-seaters.

Comfort coupe is sleek and smooth J

Four-door coupe: Sleek lines and smooth interior of the new Volkswagen have suggested the name ‘comfort coupe’.

from a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel. This is a new-generation unit putting out 103 kW, and developing a useful 320 Nm all the way from 1750 to 2500 rpm. The engine is barely audible from inside the car and only has the slightest of diesel ‘clatter’ when you listen to it from the outside. There’s more turbo lag than we had anticipated and, combined with the sometimes hesitant characteristics of the double-clutch DSG transmission, we found the Passat CC to be frustratingly slow off the line at times. Once on the move it’s fine, with plenty of overtaking punch once the engine is through its lag stage. Fuel consumption is amazingly low for a car of this size and sporting nature. We had no trouble at all getting it below seven-litres-per-hundred kilometres in easy motorway and country driving, and even saw figures in the high fives on some occasions. Even in the mundane around town running and commuting conditions the consumption was generally in the seven to eight litre range.

BY EWAN KENNEDY ust when people are getting used to new names for car body styles the car companies come along and invent new ones. For example most of the vehicles that used to be called 4WDs are now known as SUVs, and hardtop convertibles are now CCs or Coupe Convertible. However Volkswagen has chosen to break from that convention. Their Passat CC means Comfort Coupe. And to confuse matters even further, this socalled coupe has four doors rather than the two that the name traditionally suggests. The big Volkswagen has low, sleek lines that work beautifully. The body has bold style lines in the bonnet and along its flanks. The rear has some clues to the latest Volkswagen Eos coupe convertible in the shape of the lights and the sensuous spoiler lip. Inside, there’s a dashboard arrangement that works neatly, though we feel it doesn’t quite take such a bold direction as the exterior of the body. The quality of the interior is all-but immaculate, both in the choice of materials and the painstaking manner in which they have been assembled. VW’s new Passat CC has seating for four adults inside a body that’s reasonably spacious, indeed when you view its sporting, lowset lines the interior surprises in the amount of room it offers. Access to the back two seats is obviously far better than average for a coupe thanks to the rear doors. The use of two rear seats with no attempt to provide a centre seat not only gives this Passat a classier feel, but also makes space for a handy centre console, complete with drink holders. The boot is long and reasonably tall, although the sporting shape of the tail means you will not be able to carry bulky items as they may not fit through the opening. Stowage areas in the doors and the centre console between the front seats are on the tight side, though they are acceptable if you regard this as a coupe rather than a four-door sedan. On the road the Passat CC is exceptionally quiet and smooth. Noise, airflow and vibration levels are nicely subdued and this sporting Volkswagen has the feel of a luxury car from a much higher class when it’s cruising. We were particularly impressed by the quietness in the rear compartment, something that’s not always on offer, even in upmarket cars. Power for the Passat CC we road tested came

Rob Jenner from Motorcycle Service Centre says the team is always keen to provide great service and expert solutions to problems. “In the past we’ve had a lot of enquiries about servicing and repairing power skis and we are now in a position to be able to do them alongside our normal motorcycle repair duties.” Rob says. “Our senior mechanic, Ryan Joslin, has a very keen interest in restoring and riding them as a hobby so he’ll be taking them on in the shop as a full-time addition to our well established motorcycle workshop service”. Having entered four bikes of the top five finishers in the 2009 Victorian Interclub Road Racing championship, including first and second place, Rob can offer racers and track-day riders expert help with all facets of sport bike and track bike service, set-up and performance enhancement. “Dirt bikes are well catered for with riders able to take advantage of many years of experience in repair and service. Particularly now with the riding season really starting to kick-off,” Rob says. Motorcycle Service Centre is a VACC-accredited workshop which provides manufacturer approved warranty and log-book servicing, for all makes of motorcycles, scooters, ATVs and PWCs from Japan, Europe and the United States. They cover all types of maintenance and repairs including restorative services, engine and transmission reconditioning, suspension overhaul, track-day set-ups and Vicroads’ road worthy certificate. The business is also an approved crash repairer working with Shannons, Swann, QBE and InsureMyRide among others. Business hours are 8.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday (Closed first Monday of the month) at 336 Portarlington Road, Moolap. For more information phone 5248 8813 or visit www.motorcycleservicecentre.com.

Brian Long with one of five brown trout from the Barwon River on Saturday. from Joel Stirling who spent two long sessions on the snapper, catching and releasing many fish but keeping the biggest - a beauty of 8.2kg. Land-based anglers at Point Lillias caught small snapper, whiting along with big pike. Casting small, metal lures rewarded Peter Phillips with seven, the best 2.8kg. Steve James casting soft plastics from the rocks at North Shore to land two nice rock flathead and three snapper, the best 1.3kg. Local estuaries yielded bream, with the best reports from the Barwon River upstream from the Sheepwash. The estuary also produced mullet, salmon and trevally. In freshwater, Lake Bullen Merri again produced plenty of

rainbow trout on Powerbait and browns to 2.5kg on trolled lures. Lake Purrumbete was the best bet for trolling, with Tassie Devils taking trout to 3kg. Bobbers and ice jigs took redfin of all sizes taken. I caught and released five trout and lost three others in the Barwon River between Pollocksford Bridge and Murgheboluc, which was the most I had hooked in the river in a single session for years. The best was close to 2kg and most of the others were well over 1kg. Send reports and photos to info@raylongtackle.com.au or visit Brian at Ray Long’s Fishing World, 105 Shannon Avenue, Manifold Heights.

GREAT conditions prompted anglers to dust off their fishing tackle and converge on many popular angling hot spots in and around Geelong over the past week. Queenscliff’s cut produced Tommy rough, mullet, trevally and the odd snapper on small soft plastics such as curl-tail grubs and Turtleback worms. The entrance to Swan Bay had fantastic numbers of squid, some pushing close to 2kg, while the banks of Coles Channel yield quality whiting on fresh squid baits. Geoff Richards and his son fished in close to Governor Reef twice to catch their bag limit of squid and 44 whiting. Fishing from Grassy Point in his Hobie kayak with soft plastics, Nathan Jones landed a mixed bag of whiting, snapper, flathead and squid. Werribee’s Norm McCallum has been fishing off Wedge Point near the Werribee River mouth where he has found consistent snapper to 3.5kg in six metres of water just on and after dark. Shaun Reynolds found salmon working baitfish near Point Wilson Pier where he caught any number of fish to 1kg on small metal lures as well as two nice pike, the biggest just under a metre. Huge numbers of boats launched on Corio Bay with mixed results. One of the best reports came
