Manufacturers oppose shipping shift to Geelong

Car plan ‘threatened’ “The proposal would require the company to shift the processing of 41,000 import vehicles and 82,000 export vehicles to the Port of Geelong. “Toyota’s vehicles represent 40 per cent of all vehicle volume traded through the Port of Melbourne. The site proposed is too small to accommodate current and future vehicle importing and exporting requirements. It has sig-

nificant limitations and is unsuitable for automotive use.” Ms Benns said Toyota would discuss its concerns with State Government to “seek an outcome that is operationally suitable for the auto industry”. A Nissan spokesperson said the relocation would add to costs, create double handling and increase port congestion. A Holden spokesperson said

fast this week that Geelong must band together to approach the car industry about its concerns. “You have to ask the car industry what the issues are and how they can be offset. Geelong has to demonstrate what other benefits it can offer.” The Independent reported last month that Geelong’s port would be short about 12 hectares to accodate the relocated trade.

“We seek people’s understanding that there are differing views and it’s important to get the decision right in the best interests of Geelong and Victoria. “We will meet with the car industry and Toyota to go through the issues and see what can be done to resolve them.” Victorian Employers Chamber of Commerce and Industry chief Mark Stone told a business break-

Holden’s concerns related to the “size and nature of the proposed site and its ability to support the same trade volume as the Port of Melbourne”. Ports Minister Denis Napthine said the industry submissions included supportive comments and “some who raised concerns”. “We’ll consider all the submissions and come to a decision,” Mr Napthine said.

Region’s road deaths shame BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG has the highest fatality rate in regional Victoria with 26 road deaths, latest TAC statistics have revealed. Greater Geelong had six fatalities in 2009, nine in 2010 and 11 so far this year, the figures showed. Surf Coast Shire recorded nine road deaths and Golden Plains seven during the same period. The horrific toll is the target of a new regional TAC campaign, Talk the Toll Down. The campaign, a partnership between 60 Victorian regional newspapers and the TAC, began this week. Premier Ted Baillieu launched the campaign with an appeal for Victorians to help slash the toll by encouraging each other to be safe on the roads. Talk the Toll Down is TAC’s first extensive print campaign across regional Victoria. The Independent is the Geelong

campaign partner. “The TAC and its partner newspapers will be urging regional Victorians to talk the road toll down,” Mr Baillieu said. “We’re calling on regional Victorians to take ownership of the road safety issue in their community and pull each other up on bad behaviour. “It’s up to all of us to do our part to reduce the road toll. “Open discussions between friends and families can have a greater impact than being told what to do by the authorities.” TAC research revealed that country Victorians were more likely to think they could get away with risky behaviour on the road. TAC’s Joe Calafiore said of the 211 road fatalities in Victoria to midnight on September 30, 116 were in regional Victoria. Mr Calafiore said speed was a key focus for the TAC because it was a major cause of road accidents.

“Speeding reduces the time drivers have to avoid crashes, their ability to control the vehicle and lengthens stopping distances,” he said. “Our speed challenge is to make speeding as socially unacceptable as drink driving.” The Talk the Toll Down campaign complements another joint TAC-Independent campaign called Shattered Lives – the Hidden Toll. The series has been telling stories of road trauma survivors, emergency services personnel and counselling professionals dealing with the aftermath of serious injury and ongoing disabilities. Independent managing editor Tony Galpin praised Talk the Toll Down. “Our region has seen too much death and suffering. If you know someone whose driving is a worry, tell them to wake up to themselves.” – Shattered Lives, page 13

Farewell to Cats’ captain courageous BY ERIN PEARSON TRIPLE premiership player Cameron Ling said goodbye to the club he has loved all his life this week, announcing his retirement after months of deliberation. Ling struggled to hold back tears as he reflected on his 12 years with the reigning champi-

onship side. The 246-game veteran praised teammates and paid homage to former coach Bomber Thompson for helping him reach his “dreams”. “I’ve had 12 years at the club and I’ve loved every single moment. It’s the club I barracked

for as a kid and to play for them has been a dream come true. “Thank you to the boys, the players I’ve played with for 12 years. It’s been magical to come to work to hang out with my best mates. “The thing I’m going to miss the most is the boys.”

‘Murdered’ single dad struggled with poverty

Edwin Singer

VICTORIAN builder Simonds has bought the naming rights to Geelong Football Club’s home-ground stadium, Cats chief Brian Cook has announced. Cook said the company had relinquished a six year arrangement to have its name adorn the Cats’ coach to instead “elevate their partnership” to Simonds Stadium.

BY ERIN PEARSON A MAN found dead outside a Geelong hotel on Sunday night was single father and former social worker Edwin Singer, according to police. Officers found his body on Cavendish Street just before midnight Sunday after passersby discovered Mr Singer dead on a footpath. Police arrested Bradley Walters, 45, at the scene and charged him with murder. The Independent interviewed Mr Singer,

55, in October last year about his struggle with employment and living below the poverty line. Mr Singer said he had abandoned meat in his diet to make ends meet and visited The Salvation Army for food vouchers. He was struggling to pay for his 12year-old daughter’s education. Sir Charles Hotham Hotel manager Chris Moore said both men were long-term residents of the hotel. “The people we’ve got living here are very private people and are all dealing with

it in their own way,” he said. “We’ve been in the pub for over 20 years and, for a pub like ours that’s a very quiet place, it’s a total shock and totally unexpected.” Detective Senior Sergeant Stephen McIntyre said a fight allegedly broke out in an upstairs room before Mr Singer’s body was found outside. He said the pair weren’t sharing a room. The alleged murderer “made himself known to the police”, Det Sen Sgt McIntyre said.

BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG Football Club basked in blue and white glory during a parade through the city’s heart on Wednesday. The team travelled along Malop and Yarra streets to conclude the Cats’ official premiership celebrations on Geelong’s waterfront. Players appeared in front of thousands at Steampacket Gardens to thank fans for their ongoing support following the club’s third premiership in five years. Geelong Mayor John Mitchell honoured veteran defender Matthew Scartlett with the mayoral robes for the day. Thousands of Cats fans roared their support for the temporary honour. Cr Mitchell paid tribute to the team. “We are lucky as a city to have a group of young men that are absolutely fantastic,” he told the crowd. “The footy club does us proud.” Cr Mitchell reserved special praise for the player he chose to be mayor for the day. “I’ve seen (Scarlett) play since his under-13 days and am thrilled to pass him the robes.” Scarlett declared free parking, a pay rise for the mayor and free drinks for Cat fans at Ling’s waterfront restaurant, The Edge. Cat Josh Hunt was at the parade with crutches after a knee clean-out following Mad Monday celebrations. Cats coach Chris Scott said he was “so proud” to be a Geelong person. Lara’s Sam Purdy, 11, said supporting the Cats was a family affair. “We all barrack for the Cats, even mum and dad. Today was great - Go Cats.”

‘Global backlash’ for Geelong show

473230-RMB16-11

Change your life Change your body Change your attitude

522320-RMB40-11

BY ERIN PEARSON AN INTERNATIONAL backlash has prompted a Geelong theatre group to change marketing material for its controversial latest play. Hindi associations in Australia and overseas have slammed Back to Back Theatre’s representation of a Hindu god in Ganesh Versus the Third Reich. The play opened last week with Lord Ganesh travelling through Nazi Germany to reclaim the swastika, an ancient Hindu symbol. Back to Back, which uses actors with disabilities, said it had changed the marketing but the script remained unchanged. A media statement from the company said it would amend or remove “references” on its website and promotional material. Back to Back would also issue warning notices alerting intending patrons the play portrayed Lord Ganesh, the statement said. Back to Back described the show as a “serious investigation” of issues surrounding cultural misappropriation. “Back to Back is seeking, in part, to examine how individuals who are perceived to be outsiders…(are) more strongly integrated into a pluralistic society. “In our opinion, Ganesh is treated with great respect in the work. His integrity and status is never threatened.” Back to Back spokeswoman Alice Gerlach said audience responses to the show had been “really positive”. She hoped objectors would attend to judge the production for themselves. The group has previously performed around the world, including dates in London, Austria, Belgium and the United States. Universal Society of Hinduism in America president Rajan Zed said Back to Back had made Lord Ganesh a “laughing stock”. “Creating irrelevant imaginary imagery, like reportedly depicting him being tortured and interrogated by Nazi SS, hurts the devotees.”

The police will continue to do everything they can to stop illegal driving behaviour. But we need to look after our own. Often a quiet word in someone’s ear can do more than a blue and red flashing light.

• As passengers we can tell distracted or drowsy drivers to pull over, or concentrate.


BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN LOCAL diners are eating out more but spending less, a survey has found. The results reflected the experience of food service supplier Comcater, which said Geelong was now its fastest growing region after Melbourne. Regional sales manager Tony Bizzari said the company had experienced growth of 22 per cent in the region as new and established venues adapted to changing demand. Geelong Business Network’s Digby Hughes, who conducted the survey, said successful restaurants had recognised the value-for-money trend. “The key to the success was a readiness to innovate while maintaining a balance between quality and price,” he said. “Businesses in tune with what customers want and delivering quality, customer service and value for money are doing remarkably well despite the impacts of the economic downturn. “Twenty-one per cent had increased the number of equivalent full-time staff sig-

MPs, council vye for ‘speedy NBN’ BY MICHELLE HERBISON GEELONG MPs and council have joined forces to lobby for faster delivery of Australia’s National Broadband Network to the city, according to Member for Corangamite Darren Cheeseman. Mr Cheeseman said he was lobbying Broadband Minister Stephen Conroy to consider Geelong for early hook-up. Geelong had an “exciting” case, Mr Cheeseman said.

“We have a remarkable amount of information techtype companies in Geelong,” he said. “The test site at Bacchus Marsh is not far away and to deploy the network to Western Victoria will require it to come through Geelong.” Council’s economic development portfolio holder, Rod Macdonald, encouraged Geelong residents to support the campaign. “High speed broadband is

much faster and more reliable,” he said. “It will increase productivity in businesses and make it easier at home, allowing you to upload and download at lightening speed.” Cr Macdonald said the broadband network was crucial to council’s “mission to attract 21st Century industries”. A growing number of regional cities across Australia, including Townsville, Wollongong and Albury-Wodonga, had simi-

lar aims, he said. Federal member for Corio Richard Marles “welcomed enthusiasm” for the huge opportunities the broadband network would bring to the region. “I will continue to advocate for the NBN to come to our region.” Geelong’s council has launched a website for residents to vote for their support for the NBN at geelong australia.com.au.

CHANGED TRAFFIC CONDITIONS - 2011 JAYCO HERALD SUN TOUR The Jayco Herald Sun Tour is a rolling festival of cycling events being staged across Victoria. The event offers an action packed cycling extravaganza, ranging from elite and past Tour de France winners in the Tour itself, to support events for the novice cyclists. TWO STAGES OF THIS PRESTIGIOUS EVENT WILL BE STAGED IN GEELONG The peloton will arrive in Geelong on Thursday 13 October for Stage 2, contesting the finish on Deviation Hill after racing from Ballarat. This days cycling will also include the Masters, Honda Hybrid Women’s Tour and Amateur Criterium Races being held at the Belmont Criterium Track. The following day, Friday October 14, the Jayco Herald Sun Tour competitors will start on the Geelong Waterfront, race to Lorne and then back to the Bellarine Peninsula via the Great Ocean Road, Barwon Heads and Ocean Grove to finish in Drysdale. In the early afternoon prior to the Elite Men’s peloton arriving in Drysdale, Friday’s cycling festival will also feature the Honda Hybrid Women’s Tour Team Time Trial. In addition to the Tour, there will be free entertainment, giveaways, music, food, wine and local produce at ‘Wheelie Day’, a family event being held at the Drysdale Primary School.

TEMPORARY CHANGED TRAFFIC CONDITIONS 13 & 14 OCTOBER, 2011 Please note that temporary changed traffic conditions, road closures and changed parking conditions will apply for this event. The Elite race itself will operate under a rolling road closure which means the roads remain open and it is only when the peloton passes through, that vehicles will be asked to pull to the side of the road by the Police escort until the entire official convoy passes.

New limits ‘to protect views’ BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN PLANS to remove a 7.5-metre building height limit from areas without “significant” views are set to go on public display. A report to council said City of Greater Geelong officers had identified 16 precincts with views worth protecting. The precincts included parts of Wandana Heights, Highton, Newtown, Herne Hill, Hamlyn Heights, Bell Post Hill, Ocean Grove, Indented Head, St Leonards Portarlington, Point Lonsdale, Barwon Heads, Drysdale, Clifton Springs and Leopold.

BAINES BEACH MASSIVE SURF SAMPLE SALE

Council planning portfolio holder Rod Macdonald said nine-metre limits would apply in other areas. Buildings outside the 16 precincts would no longer require planning permits. The report said loss of the 7.5m height trigger “may be negatively viewed by some in the community”. “The right to participate in the planning process for a single twostorey dwelling over 7.5m will be removed unless it is in an area strategically identified as having access to views. “The majority of existing permits for dwellings over 7.5 metres are in areas that have access to

views or are covered by another planning control.” The report said the proposal sought to ensure that the siting, height and visual bulk of dwellings achieved a “reasonable sharing of views between properties and significant landscape features”. “A view impact analysis should be submitted when there is likely to be an impact on views to significant landscape features by the proposed development,” the report said. “Any view impact analysis should demonstrate how the design objectives to achieve a reasonable sharing of views has been met.”

THE dish-lickers are about to step up a notch in class. Victorian Racing Minister Denis Napthine has announced an upgrade of facilities at Corio’s Beckley Park to “the benefit of families, patrons and punters”. The $144,000 project will add a new outdoor observation deck opposite the winning post and a children’s playground area. “When complete the deck will be in a prime location for patrons to view the racing during summer,” Mr Napthine said. “The deck will feature seating and tiered steps, while ramps will also be built to provide easy access for patrons.” Mr Napthine said the playground would provide “a familyfriendly environment” at Beckley Park.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN HEATHER Nankervis is a positive person – no mean feat when you understand what she has endured. Heather came within a hair’s breadth of losing her life in a collision just a minute or two from her South Geelong home. The personal carer was returning from visiting her 99-year-old client in hospital when a car ran a stop sign. “The driver of the other car simply got distracted picking cigarettes up off the floor and didn’t see me or the stop sign,” Heather said. “There were no extenuating circumstances. Speed, alcohol or drugs were not a factor and the weather was normal. “He simply got distracted.” Heather was trapped in her car for 45 minutes while SES and CFA units cut her from the tangled wreck. She was taken to Geelong Hospital but the severity of her injuries meant she was airlifted to Melbourne. She underwent surgery to relieve bleeding on her brain and was in intensive care for two weeks. Heather listed her injuries: a fractured temple; a broken chin, a broken shoulder; 11 broken ribs; a neck injury; facial lacerations; a collapsed lung; bleeding from the liver and kidneys; four fractures

OPPERMAN, Mockridge, Evans – the list of high-achieving local cyclists begins pretty impressively. The common denominator for cycling in the region for almost 100 years has been Geelong Cycling Club. “I’ve only been in the club for 10 years, so I’m only a Johnny-comelately,” president John Burtt admitted. “I don’t want to try rattling off famous names for fear of leaving people out but there have been a lot of very good riders who have been members of the club. “These days we have young upand-comers like Leigh Howard who has been fantastic with his time, acting as an ambassador for the club,” John enthused. “If you have aspirations as a competitive cyclist then Geelong is the place to be and the way to go. “We have a number of young riders competing in elite events like the Tour of Geelong, Tour of Tasmania and Tour of Bright. It gives riders a pathway.” John said the club ran weekly races for its 150 members, with up to 60 riders on any given weekend. “There are lots of people out there who are fit and have high-end machinery and look the part who are cycling regularly. “Many of them do the Saturday or Sunday morning ride then head off to the coffee shop and home. “We want to encourage Geelong’s recreational cyclists to transfer some of that competitive spirit into a club capacity.” John said the road cycling season had just ended, with the track season about to begin. “The cycling track at Geelong West has been upgraded and the grandstand is being refurbished. We also run events on the Belmont criterium

Join the club JOHN VAN KLAVEREN track.” John was aware that, as with many clubs, attracting juniors was the key. “We have a few ideas about a junior development program and we’re looking at developing a hybrid bike for juniors,” he said. “We’re working with a local bike shop to put together a universal sports bike based on a BMX to allow the rider to change the drive mechanism. “Then parents wouldn’t have to fork out for a road bike and a track bike and would also have an everyday bike for their kids – it would be multipurpose.” John said the concept was under development with the support of local business interests and Cycling Victoria. The amount of positive publicity afforded cycling in recent years meant interest in the sport had grown, he said. The 100th anniversary of the club should also generate much interest, with a celebratory dinner next week. John said the club hoped to catch up with many former members. Former Australian national cycling champion Matt Lloyd would be guest speaker at the dinner from 7pm next Friday in Skilled Stadium’s Captains’ Room. John urged anyone interested in attending to inspect the club’s website at geelongcycling.com for more information.

buckets & bouquets BUCKETS to some bus drivers who are sometimes late or early and who won’t stop, saying they did not see waiting passengers who should have waved their phone lights. However, the drivers pull over at a deserted stop for a smoke. Maybe this is why few people use Geelong’s buses. DC, Geelong BUCKETS to Pakington St shop owners for failing to clearly display street numbers. It hinders tourists looking for addresses. Frustrating Indeed, Carseldine, Queensland BOUQUETS to the person who found my keys last weekend in the vicinity of Eastern Gardens. Your thoughtfulness was much appreciated. Very Grateful, Leopold

BUCKETS to motorists who speed down Ocean Grove’s Blue Waters Dve and Lake Ave near a park and lake where children play, walk and ride bikes. Driving too fast could result in harm to one of these littlies. Worried Parent, Ocean Grove BOUQUETS to a wonderful lady who handed in my handbag at ALDI Newcomb after I left it in my trolley. Your honesty was really appreciated. Grateful, East Geelong BOUQUETS to Harcourts North Geelong’s Kristina for her exceptional service as a property manager.

BUCKETS to Update (Buckets and Bouquets). It’s okay to bucket someone but you went too far highlighting their small “stature”. What does their height have to do with it? I say buckets to anyone who picks on smaller people. Shorty, Highton BOUQUETS to a neighbour who picked up someone else’s dog poo off my front lawn. He didn’t realise I was watching from inside.

Dry but 90% in storages ALTHOUGH rain for September was below average virtually across the whole region from the Bellarine Peninsula to the Otways, there were few complaints. Geelong’s water storages finished the month at 90 per cent of capacity and the year so far has been well above average for rain. The average across urban Geelong was around 35mm compared to the long-term average of 49mm. Normal totals for Geelong to the end of September are around 380mm but to date this year we have received around 470mm thanks to high totals in the early months. As for September temperatures, Geelong’s daily minimums averaged 8C and maximums were 18.7C. Despite the change of monitoring site, these figures would equate to around half a degree warmer than Geelong’s long-term September average temperature. Other features of the month included two thunder and lightning days on September 19 and 28. However, both days recorded only moderate rain of between 10mm and 20 mm respectively. No severe storms were recorded during the month. Strong winds over 60km/h were recorded on five days, with the month’s strongest gusts reaching 76km/h on September 19. Only minor damage was reported.

letters Fueling doubt

On deaf ears

THOSE promoting the growth of Avalon Airport should consider a bigger issue: the end of cheap liquid fuels. Qantas chief Alan Joyce said in July that rising fuel prices were a greater worry than the carbon tax. After years of denying the reality of peak oil, International Energy Agency chief Fatih Birol admitted in May that world oil production peaked in 2006. Saudi Arabia, the largest oil producer nation, recently became the world’s sixth largest oil user. Its use of oil for electricity generation has doubled since 2000. There is no substitute for fossil-based crude oil. Virgin and Lufthansa are trialling jet fuel from bio sources but bio-fuel EROEI, or energy return on energy invested, is less than one. That is, it takes more energy to make than the energy it yields. The future of cheap air travel for the masses is now less than certain. The Baillieu Government should therefore follow the British government and set up an industry taskforce on peak oil and energy security before investing millions of dollars on a rail link to Avalon Airport that may be redundant in a few years. Phil Baulch Belmont

ELAINE Carbines has stated that G21 “would certainly applaud the Planning Minister if he made a decision to keep the current alignment� of section 4C of Geelong ring road. Would G21 also applaud the disintegrating health of nearby residents adversely affected by sleeplessness, noise, pollution and greatly increased rates of asthma, especially for children? Would G21 also applaud the further alienation of deaf students who attend Grovedale West Primary School and Grovedale College? If 4C was built as proposed the traffic noise would jeopardise the rights of deaf students to participate in outdoor activities. Dot Pearce Grovedale

4C alternatives CONTRARY to claims by Jacinta Allan MP, Planning Minister Matthew Guy did not promise to release the advisory committee report on Section 4C nor to make a quick decision. As the report has not been publicly released, statements by Ms Allan and G21 are unwelcome speculation.

Stop bridge now I WOULD like to express great concern about the prepossessed bridge to a new housing development at the end of Bayshore Ave, Clifton Springs. The bridge would be the only entry to the development for many years, creating danger for residents and children, especially with increased traffic past the school on Jetty Rd. This traffic has doubled over the past few years due to the roundabout on Portarlington-Geelong Rd, which motorists avoid by taking Jetty Rd onto Bayshore Ave. People travelling to work or school experience 10-to-15-minute delays trying to enter Portarlington-Geelong Rd from Jetty Rd each day. The developers and councillors should be more responsible and provide a new road to this development rather than off-loading their monetary problems onto the people of Clifton Springs Act now to stop this disregard for the ratepayers of Clifton Springs J Carruthers Clifton Springs

Sense on board WITH new board members at Barwon Water, one would hope to see common sense prevail. As a chemical sufferer, I couldn’t agree more there should be double-blind studies to test people for chemical sensitivity to ingredients placed in our water supply. Prior to hydrofluorosilicic acid, or fluoride, being added to our supply I coped very well with Geelong’s highly regarded tap water. The price of finding an efficient filtering system is prohibitive and I have found that only reverse osmosis goes close. However, it takes up to five litres to gain one litre of potable water. I and many others are suffering ill effects of this supposed help for children with dental caries. Please, authorities, supply people with fluoride in tablets, because it would then be their choice to administer a drug to their children, rather than mass medication of the whole populace for something yet to be scientifically validated to not cause systemic damage.

FEDERAL parliament is soon to vote on a carbon tax along with 17 other renewable energy bills. Federal Government has squandered millions of dollars on a scare campaign to justify this totally stupid, ineffective tax. In 50 years, when it is realised global warming is not happening, that CO2 poses no threat to the planet whatsoever and after spending tens of billions of wasted dollars trying to address so-called climate change, those still postulating such a view will have egg on their faces. They will pray the earth swallows them up to save them from public ridicule and embarrassment. Meanwhile we have to put up with the Mad Hatter’s tea party. Global warming theory is the greatest con of all time. Despite our modern sophistication and society being awash with tertiary graduates we seem more prone to accept anything purported to be “scientific�. With so many people sucked in by dodgy science, I’m reminded of the words of Phineas T. Barnum; “There’s a sucker born every minute�. In 2100 when historians look back over the pre-

ceding century they will be aghast that so much money could be squandered by so few on behalf of so many on basically pure speculation. Alan Barron Grovedale

Undercut smugglers REGARDING asylum seekers, they’re coming to the right asylum! Seriously, if the Australian Government wishes to put people smugglers out of business the capitalist answer, perhaps too radical for the present lot, would be to compete and undercut them. Set up an agency in Indonesia or another suitable country on their route and advertise commercial fares on Al Jazeera and elsewhere. Demand suitable identification and fare money up front as a prerequisite for passage. Just ensuring they have their papers would have to expedite the investigation process. Require all applicants to agree to respect our culture and laws as an enforceable visa condition, with deportation the penalty for transgression. Bring the successful ones in by plane and give them working visas so they can support themselves after they arrive. The principal benefit would be that they stay in the transit country until the vetting process is completed at their own expense. Let’s face it, they are doing this already and by paying only regular plane fares would be better able to support themselves. Even if assistance was needed with accommodation in the transit country it would be far cheaper than providing it here or on Christmas Island. This would get rid of the Malaysian, Manus Island and Nauru so-called solutions and the Christmas Island and mainland detention centres and their substantial costs. Peter Mackinlay Geelong

Pokies lifesaver THERE’S been much debate recently about the Federal Government’s reforms to reduce problem gambling on poker machines and it’s timely to explain again how these reforms will work. For a start, they’re not a thought bubble from me. They’re lifted straight from the Productivity Commission, an independent body that has studied the issue for years and recommended this solution. Mandatory pre-commitment will be fitted to highintensity poker machines with bets of more than $1. This means people playing pokies set limits on their losses with a card before they start gambling. The limit is their choice and many are already carrying loyalty cards similar to pre-commitment cards. But most poker machine players won’t notice a difference and won’t need a card. Low-intensity poker machines will be rolled out with a $1 maximum bet. These machines won’t be fitted with mandatory pre-commitment, so the 88 per cent of Australians who gamble $1 or less a spin can play these machines just as they do now without a card. Federal parliament will pass the necessary laws by May and poker machine venues will have until the end of 2014 to comply. Small venues with 15 machines or less, about 40 per cent of pokies venues, will have until 2018. It’s estimated 95,000 Australians have a problem with pokies, losing a staggering $5 billion each year. They also routinely lose jobs, family and friends, homes, minds and sometimes even their lives. Like seatbelts reduced the road toll, mandatory pre-commitment will save lives. Andrew Wilkie MP Federal Member for Denison

Showman still horses around BY ERIN PEARSON SWISS-BORN horse trainer Rene Gasser was a natural entertainer by the tender age of six. After his grandmother introduced him to horses as a small child, Gasser is now a sixth generation horseman. Over the years he worked alongside some of Europe’s finest horse trainers and riders while finding time to settle in Australia. Gasser is now touring the country with his latest horse entertainment extravaganza, El Caballo Blanco: The Dance of the White Stallions. He promised the show would be his biggest and best spectacular yet. “The show we’re doing right now is a celebration of the Spanish horse and its culture. We’re highlighting the beautiful horses and also flamenco dances, musicians and singers,” Gasser said. “At the end of the day we are entertainers. The horses and I, and we love to entertain people who love horses.” Gasser said El Caballo Blanco: The Dance of the White Stallions would feature performing

Andalusian, Friesian, Lipizzaner and Arabian breeds. Gasser’s love of horses and performing runs deep. He lives and breathes his travelling showman lifestyle, staying close beside his herd of beautifullykept animals no matter where in the world his entourage travels. Gasser said the horses required hundreds of hours of maintenance, with some sporting manes over one metre long. “You have to be in love with this job otherwise it’s too hard,”

he admitted. “Some days you spend 24 hours with the horses. I was lucky in the sense that I love it because I grew up in a family with the same love and now have all the ties and knowledge from my parents and grandparents. “In this show I’ve got 10 horses but own 30 all up and I remember all their names and little mannerisms. “I try not to be biased but my favorite is my Apollo. He’s a black horse I got 22 years ago and he’s been with me since he was a baby.” Gasser said many people who attend his shows were formerly horse owners who could not hide their passion for the animals. “You can see the love in their eyes when they talk about the horses they used to have. There’s something special about horses,” he said. “For me the excitement comes when the horses enter the ring and you hear the awe of the audience. “It makes it all worthwhile.” Gasser will perform El Caballo Blanco: The Dance of the White Stallion twice at Geelong Arena on October 15.

Add a belt for extra gusto. Consider wedges – they’re very “right now” and ideal for the racecourse setting. Two styles of headwear are leading the field: bold, bright colours with multiple shades of the one tone in more structured millinery (think the “hat-ette”) and feminine, vintage styles with lace, in neutrals and mochas. Bold, red statement lips are an absolute must. Refine the remainder of your make-up and opt for a pretty, daytime look but don’t fall short on the lips! Soft, sexy, sultry curls have returned – wear them in an ‘up’ do that is styled but flowing, showing effort without harshness.

But fashion may be the main fancy of the ladies, with the winner of Fashions in the Birdcage to receive two return economy airfares to Honolulu and five nights accommodation courtesy of Strategic Airlines, Jetset Waterfront and Freestyle Holidays. To be in the race for the prize ladies must be Birdcage ticket-holders. The event will be hosted by Lamby’s Birdcage celebrity ambassador Ruby Rose. Entrants will seek to impress judges Kyla Field, of Endota Spa Geelong, and Lynne Carlson, from Jetset Waterfront. Kyla advised that style, sophistication and glamour were always a standout for her. “Sophistication is at the top of my list,” she said. “I like the ladies to look smart. It’s an introduction to spring, so I’ll be looking for splashes of colour of the season. “I certainly admire a lovely hat or millinery that complements the outfit and most definitely accessorise but ensure it’s minimal so it doesn’t take over. Also, keep in mind we’re going for a spring theme, which means a lighter look.” Lynne expected “technicolour” wave for spring, with brighter block colours replacing the traditional black and white of winter racewear. “Dresses with a soft, feminine touch and fine detailing are also leading the charge, according to fashion label Decjuba, with luxe fabrics the standout.

Sisters to rock QMF SISTER rock sensation Stonefield will play an all-ages gig at Point Lonsdale Primary School Hall next weekend. The Triple J Unearthed High 2010 winner has gone on to rock stages all across the world, including an appearance at England’s Glastonbury Festival earlier this year. Findlay sisters Amy, Hannah, Sarah and Holly started their band in a shed on a family hobby farm in a rural township north of Melbourne. The foursome began after their parents granted their daughters’ wish of a drum kit. The girls grew up to the music of Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin. Oldest sister Amy took a particular shine to the kit at the tender age of 15

Quarter time: Finally family foursome Stonefield. and soon began lessons. instruments one by one. The other sisters were drawn back Hannah, then 13, started on guitar, into the shelter, finding their own and 12-year-old Sara took on a role as

the band’s keyboard player. Seven-year-old Holly listened to her sisters practicing before asking her father for a bass. As the Findlays’ collection of instruments grew, a music teacher moved into the property next door before being commissioned to coach each sister Six years later Stonefield has become Australian rock and roll’s newest family story. Next weekend’s performance will also feature local talent The Sweethearts, The Nicholson 5 and The Warning. The free all-ages concert is at Point Lonsdale Primary School Hall from 6pm to 10pm on October 15. The event will be fully supervised and drug, alcohol and smoking-free.

Kimbra vows to excite souls BY ERIN PEARSON NEW ZEALAND-born songstress Kimbra believes music should challenge the soul. And that’s precisely what she’s doing with her own brand of smoky soul. In only one of two interviews with the media between now and next year, Kimbra told the Independent she was preparing to embark on a mammoth journey to America in anticipation of her international album release. “It’s certainly cool to take it to a new audience because they sometimes look at the songs in a different way,” she said. “I think the best kind of music is the stuff that can surprise you and take you somewhere you don’t expect. “That’s my focus; that excites me.” Bringing a modern edge to the warm sounds of soul with a voice that belies her age, Kimbra said her jazz-influenced theatrical pop was inspired by a range of musical genres and artists from Bjork to Prince. “I like to trend to as many genres as I can including gospel and soul, Stevie Wonder, Nine Inch Nails, African music, Prince and Michael Jackson,” she laughed. “I find inspiration from everywhere as long as it comes from a place of conviction and honesty. “The more you consume as an artist in terms of film and art the more you can draw from when

Focus: Rising Kiwi star Kimbra will feature on the bill at next month’s Queenscliff Music Festival. Picture: Aimee Han you write your own music and create it unique.” After three years based in Melbourne, Kimbra recently completed her debut full length album, Vows. Some of the best producers in the business chopped and changed the album’s classic jazz intonation updated for the techno age. Featuring on the album are producers Francois Tetaz, who has worked with Architecture in Helsinki and Gotye, and MPhazes, producer for Amerie and Pharoahe Monch.

Kimbra also featured on Miami Horror’s track I Look To You and Gotye’s Somebody I Used To Know. But her new success hadn’t come easily, the artiste said. She spent four years working on the newly released record. “It definitely hasn’t happened over night,” she said. “It’s exciting now that people are starting to hear about it and resonate with the music.” Kimbra will perform at Queenscliff Music Festival from November 25 to 27.

he people at Geelong’s Wesley Centre for Life Enrichment do the work of angels. They provide a wide range of counselling, support services and programs to anyone who comes to them in need. Centre Director Michael Nolan says the organisation’s motto is: “You speak, we listen and care”. “We aim to be of service to all people regardless of income, background, religion or belief.” The centre’s cooperatively run Life after Loss support group is geared to women who have recently lost their partners. The program deals with a range of emotional and practical issues. The Centre also runs Suicide Prevention Awareness Network

T

(SPAN), offering support to the families and friends of suicide victims. “We need to break the silence about suicide and put the issue very much in society’s face,” Mr Nolan says. Wesley also runs a Dads in Distress support group. “This is a peer support group for fathers who have experienced family breakdown and separation from their children,” Mr Nolan says. “Our aim is to reduce social isolation and offer positive hope and help. We want to stop the anger and aggression often experienced by men in this situation.” The organisation also offers play and walking groups and a branch of Alcoholics Anonymous.

But Mr Nolan says the centre’s “prime focus” is the provision of counselling on a personal basis. Issues covered include relationship breakdown, grief, stress management, depression, addiction and personal development. “We offer assistance to those socially and economically disadvantaged in the form of subsidised professional counselling services”, Mr Nolan says. Wesley Centre for Life Enrichment is funded by the Geelong City Parish of Wesley Uniting Church and a number of generous community charities. The centre offers hope and light in darkest hours. Wesley Centre for Life Enrichment is at 218 Ryrie St, Geelong.

Mental health help for young people tatistics suggest one in four young Australians has a mental illness. Alarmingly, only 50 per cent of them seek help. Mental health problems in childhood and adolescence can have far-reaching effects on physical well-being and educational, psychological and social development. Young people with mental illness can also struggle to learn,

S

build relationships and transition into adulthood as smoothly as mentally healthy counterparts. When early-warning signs of difficulty are unattended, mental health problems can potentially become more serious and possibly extend into mental disorders. Early intervention and a more-supportive environment can lead sufferers to better men-

tal health outcomes later in life. Targeting young people aged 12 to 25 is crucial, with statistics showing 75 per cent of people with a mental illness experienced its onset by the age of 24. Headspace Barwon provides help to young people aged 12 to 25, including opportunities to speak openly with a wide variety of staff. More information is available at headspace.org.au/barwon.

Heat rising on losing weight LOSING WEIGHT

WITH MANDY FISHER ising weather temperatures in the past couple of weeks have made many of us aware summer is coming. Now is the time to think about how our indulgence over winter may have left in its wake tighter clothing and an expanded waistline. This is the time of year when we start looking for a suitable weight loss program to help reduce our girth. There are many weight loss programs around and they all work or they wouldn’t be in the marketplace. Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean they are sustainable or a wise way to lose weight. Many programs are very radical, expecting the participant to change or cut out too many food choices and make significant behavioural changes. We have to examine the necessary criteria for losing weight when looking to follow a specified weight loss program. The criteria should be: a program that is a sustainable way of eating for life; food choices taken from all the food groups; three proper

Silent nights with sleep clinic

My Sleep Clinic clinical director Dr George Klein. throat muscles start to collapse onto an already narrow throat. The initial collapse causes snoring. As the relaxation continues the muscles relax further, leading

to total airway obstruction. The severity of sleep apnoea is determined by how many times per hour the individual stops breathing, or instance of apneas, and for how long the pauses last. My Sleep Clinic conducts home-based diagnostic studies for patients to gather necessary information to treat snoring and obstructive apnoeas. Most patients are referred to the clinic by general practioners. Treatment is simple: if the problem is just snoring or mild to moderate sleep apnoea, a simple dental device is the solution. If the sleep apnoeais are severe, a CPAP machine is utilised. More information and appointments are available by phoning 5273 4644.

ore than 40 per cent of Australian adults are severe snorers. Three-quarters of snorers who keep their partners awake at night are unaware they could be suffering a serious health condition stopping them breathing while asleep and causing daytime tiredness. The condition, sleep apnoea, is Australia’s hidden epidemic, with serious effects including high blood pressure, heart problems and, in severe cases, stroke. People snore and choke during the night because they have inherited a narrow throat and collapsible throat muscles. This leads to snoring and choking because as soon as the individual goes to sleep they start to relax. As relaxation progresses

BY ERIC BLAIR he Volvo V60 is another example of the change in direction the company has made in the last 10 years. A mid-sized station wagon it manages to combine style with practicality and makes a fine choice. The V60 is the third wagon variant in Volvo’s range. Built on the same platform as the S60 sedan that was launched here late last year, it sits between the Swedish company’s V50 and V70 models. European wagons have traditionally been smaller and more stylish than their more functional Australian counterparts – although Holden has broken the mould with its latest Commodore wagon – but the Volvo V60 takes this a step further with lines that are closer to those of a coupe than a station wagon. Indeed, from the rear, the V60 could almost be mistaken for a larger version of the delightful little C30 coupe that we recently tested. Three of the seven engines available globally will be fitted to Australian V60s, the same three as are fitted to the S60 sedan: four-cylinder petrol, five-cylinder diesel and sixcylinder petrol. All engines are turbocharged. The smallest, but most interesting, of the three is the 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol unit that will power the V60 T5 model. Named GTDi (Gasoline Turbocharged Direct Injection) it is virtually the same as the EcoBoost four-cylinder engine that will soon power Australian Ford Falcons. In the Volvo V60 the GTDi engine generates maximum power of 177 kW at 5500 rpm and torque of 320 Nm all the way from 1800 to 5000 revs. Fuel consumption is rated at 8.7

sport Cats aiming to lick opposition GEELONG Cricket Club kicks off another campaign this weekend when it travels up the highway to take on Melbourne University. The Cats licked their wounds during a long offseason after a disappointing semi-final against Frankston Peninsula earlier this year. It was certainly a case of the one that got away after Geelong’s bowlers put the side in a good position only to see its batsmen fail to complete the task. But all that’s history now. With Damian Shanahan recently re-appointed as coach for a further three years, his job will be to reinvigorate the group physically and mentally for another crack.

GCA Geelong Cricket Association also kicks off it’s season as well this weekend, with the gap between the top and bottom six sides appearing to have widened in division one. Clubs such as South Barwon, St Josephs and East Belmont, all recent perennial finalists, have added some quality players to their rosters, while Grovedale and Geelong West look as strong ever. Trent Walerys has gone to St Josephs where he will prove a valuable commodity to a team bristling

Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE with talent but which has found the ultimate success slightly out of its grasp for too long now. South Barwon has picked up former VCA star Phil Halbish, while Clinton Peake has returned to the club, officially in a coaching capacity but it won’t surprise anyone if he pulls on the whites at some stage. East Belmont has appointed Chris Bambury as captain and added David Lineen and Sean O’Niell to its ranks. East will hope this offsets the loss of Peter Quick who retired from first XI cricket at the end of last season. At the other end of the table, Highton has been

promoted to division one at the expense of Thomson, with The Heat rocked by the news that work Melbourne commitments have forced out skipper and best player Shannon Young. Andrew Morrison has stepped in to lead the side but faces a monumental task to keep it competitive. Selections: ST JOSEPH’S v Lara, Manifold Heights v NEWTOWN AND CHILWELL, GROVEDALE v Bell Post Hill, GEELONG WEST v Highton, Leopold v NORTH GEELONG, EAST BELMONT v South Barwon. In division two, last season’s grand finalists, St Albans Breakwater and Geelong City, look like the teams to beat again this time around. Both have strong squads with quality batting and bowling stocks to complement their competitive natures. Thomson has dropped back after one season in the top flight and will hope to have a say in things as well. Newcomb and District will be worth keeping an eye on, with the club striving to get back on track after a couple of seasons of losing its way. Marshall emerged last year under the guidance of Mark Brady but will also want to improve on a quality campaign.

Many eyes will be on Alexander Thomson and Guild St Mary’s, with both decimated by departures during the winter months. A good start to the season will be crucial otherwise it may be a long way back for both clubs. Selections: ST PETER’S v Bell Park, Torquay v MARSHALL, Guild St Mary’s v THOMSON, ST ALBANS BREAKWATER v Alexander Thomson, Murgheboluc v WAURN PONDS, GEELONG CITY v Newcomb & District. In division three, the usual power clubs will be thereabouts again this season. Winchelsea, Modewarre and Teesdale always take some beating, while Little River has emerged as a quality team over the past couple of years. Bell Park also proved its doubters wrong, making it to the grand final in March. With a young squad it will be looking to go one better. Lethbridge got the chocolates six months ago and if it can keep the same group of players together and firing will take some beating. Selections: Teesdale v LETHBRIDGE, Inverleigh v LITTLE RIVER, Shelford v MODEWARRE, WINCHELSEA v Corio, BANNOCKBURN v Meredith, North Shore, CORIO BAY.

Reddy, set, go: region’s lakes and rivers fire up with tasty table fish On the bite BRIAN LONG FRESHWATER anglers saw red in the past week. Well, redfin at least. The Barwon and Moorabool rivers along with many local lakes hosted an explosion of this fine table fish on the bite. Craig Varker put in the hours at Wurdee Boluc Reservoir to land his fair share of quality redfin on Pegron lures. The reservoir also returned rainbow and brown trout on lure and fly. I harassed fish in the Barwon and Moorabool rivers on both fly and lure. The odd trout was available but the redfin made for a few quality outings. Small, bibbed lures were successful, while the best fly offerings were smelt patterns such as a Grey Ghost. Brendan Sheedy found redfin above Buckley Falls, landing fish to just over 1kg on SX 40s and Atomic Shads. Clear colours were best. Trout anglers found fish at most western district lakes. Even three-year-old Brodie Mooney was in the action, with mum and dad helping him land a magnificent rainbow of 2.58kg. Deep Lake and Lake Tooliorrok hosted plenty of action, with bait anglers only needing Powerbait. Lures such as Tassie Devils or Rapala X Raps were also productive.

Fresh princes: Three-year-old Brodie Mooney shows off his plump Western District trout, left, and Craig Varker with a handsome redfin from Wurdee Boluc Reservoir. Noel Henry cast small, black Celtas at Bostock Reservoir to catch and release seven rainbow trout around 900g weight each in a two-hour session. Lake Purrumbete rewarded trollers with trout to over 3kg. Tassie Devils in the gold colours were good as any but trolling mudeyes behind cow bells was also successful. Powerbait continued accounting for rainbows at Lake Bullen Merri, although anglers fishing after dark with gudgeon accounted for bigger fish, browns of 2kg plus. Gary James said Lake Elingamite was on fire. He landed two magnificent redfin better than 1.5kg along with two brown trout over 2kg while trolling the new Lil Ripper clear coloured lures.

Saltwater anglers also saw plenty of action, with snotty trevalla starting to show up at Cunningham Pier. Early morning is the go with chicken the bait of choice. Trevalla were also taken along the outer wall of Royal Geelong Yacht Club. Soft plastics were extremely successful for anglers drifting between Eastern Beach and the old Yarra Street Pier ruins. Snapper dominated captures, with fish better than 3kg landed. The same area also produced trevalla, salmon and flathead, with Turtleback worms and small, minnow-pattern lures accounting for the best captures. Casting small laser lures from the rocks at North

Shore was rewarding for a number of anglers including Damian West two nabbed three pike over 70cm. Snapper captures steadily increased. A few bigger fish were taken from the inner-harbour but the outer-harbour really took off. Wilson Spit produced good numbers of fish between 2kg and 6kg, with similar sizes taken off Clifton Springs and the nine-foot bank. Fresh squid and pilchard have been the baits to use. Henry McMahon had a ball trolling for snapper from Point Henry to Leopold. He landed seven fish, releasing all but the largest, a beauty of 5.7kg. The best lures for trolling on snapper have been Dr Evil, Tail Dancers and Sebile Koolie Minnows. Squid were readily available from the shallow grass beds at Edwards Point and all the way to St Leonards. Shallow water has been best. Queenscliff’s cut again produced silver trevally on either soft plastics or bait, with some nice snapper also landed. Some outstanding whiting captures were also recorded on the evening tides. The Barwon River estuary continued to produce both salmon and trevally. Bream should also be available to anglers with fresh bait. Salmon were still being taken from the surf at both Fairhaven and Eastern View. Lures accounted for most fish, particularly on the high tides. Snapper anglers should try Clifton Springs this weekend late in the afternoon and into the evening. Anyone seeking redfin should try the Barwon River near Landy Field throughout the afternoon with lures.
