HRIFTWAY Furniture combined its two large stores to form a single mega store at Newcomb on August 1, 2009. Owner Neil Harrison was excited to open the massive showroom on the Bellarine Highway. “After being in the furniture game for so long I’ve always wanted to provide everything an entire family needs under one roof,” he said. “Our mega store has 23,000-squarefeet of floor space and over 1000 items on display, such as lounge suites, sofas, dining tables, entertainment units, bedroom suites,

kids’ furniture, sofa beds and coffee tables. “As our slogan says: Thriftway Furniture mega store - we’ve got just what you’re looking for. “We have customers travelling from across Geelong, the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula looking for that one piece of furniture to finish off their home.” Neil said Thriftway Furniture was open seven days a week because buying furniture and bedding was often a family decision and Sundays were often the only day all members of families could get together.

Thriftway moved from Shannon Ave, Geelong West to Bellarine Highway, Newcomb.

The fr friendly Thriftway staff: Neil Harrison, Tyler Brady, Troy Harrison, Casey Brain, Geoff Graham and Peter Smith.

Mall rats, not location, identified as ‘the problem’ with bus interchange BY ERIN PEARSON VIOLENT “mall rats” are the main problem with Geelong’s new bus interchanges, according to traders and commuters. They demanded extra police protection as council prepares to review the controversial interchanges amid calls to move them out of Moorabool Street. Banjo’s manager Emerly Etheredge, 23, said staff wanted the interchanges to stay but believed they were attracting unruly youths. Staff were in fear of the youths after receiving death threats, she said. “(The interchanges) bring customers up to this end of Moorabool Street but the mall rats hang around, spit and sit on our seats,” she said. “One mall rat threatened to kill one of our staff members the other week.” Ms Etheredge, who has worked at the store for nine years, said trouble escalated after the interchanges arrived in September. Good Housekeeping’s Ann Gravet said 3pm to 5pm weekdays was trouble time at the interchanges. “We’ve had kids come behind our counter and we’ve watched girls being scratched. We need more security and more police around.” Bus traveller Shirly Fairless, of Belmont, supported the interchanges’ location for its convenience. She also found Moorabool Street safer than her previous bus stop near Centrelink. “I feel safer here because there are more people around if something did happen.” Geelong Police Inspector Gary Thompson said the force’s existing management plan for Geelong’s mall highlighted a “number of key issues” related to the interchanges.

300 jobs in JSF coup BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A NEW aviation manufacturing facility is set to create 300 jobs in Geelong. Marand Precision Engineering general manager Rohan Stocker told the Independent the facility would service a defence contract worth up to $800 million. The company was investigating several sites including Avalon, Mr Stocker said. Marand secured a major international contract with two of the world’s leading aerospace and

defence firms building a global Joint Strike Fighter (JSF). In a landmark agreement with aerospace giants BAE Systems and Lockheed Martin, Marand won the contract to manufacture vertical tail assemblies for the JSF program. Marand will also build highprecision ground equipment for removal and installation during strike fighter maintenance. Mr Stocker said first deliveries were scheduled for the end of 2013. Marand would spend $50 mil-

Minister for Defence Materiel Jason Clare last week officially opened the new plant to make “specialist pyrotechnics and counter-measures” for defence personnel in Afghanistan. Chemring built the plant after winning a $160 million Federal Government contract. “The counter-measures are a defensive flare system that assists in protecting aircraft against enemy missiles,” Mr Clare said.

economic and jobs boost for Geelong. The Marand contract was Australia’s largest JSF manufacturing contract to date, he said. Mr Dalla-Riva revealed Chemring Australia was also positioned to bid for JSF contracts with the opening of a new $30 million state-of-the-art countermeasures manufacturing facility at Lara. The announcements represented a “significant step toward establishing a world-class aviation and aerospace precinct in the

Centre for Advanced Materials Manufacturing. “The strength of those links is one of the reasons we chose Geelong. We need a region where we can source a skilled and semiskilled workforce,” Mr Stocker said. The contract was the culmination of almost nine years’ hard work, he said.

Mr Stocker said the facility would also help the company bid for similar contracts, adding to Geelong’s aerospace capability. Marand was “working with” City of Greater Geelong and Avalon Airport, he said. Marand had “strong links” with the Geelong operations of Ford, Deakin University and Victorian

MCKELLAR CENTRE Thug threw dim sims during Charity Golf Day ‘cowardly’ assault on student BY KIM WATERES A MAN threw dim sims at a university student before punching him unconscious in a “cowardly attack” at a service station, a Geelong court has heard. Korey Caddy, 21, of Geelong, pleaded guilty in Geelong Magistrates Court to recklessly causing injury in the assault at an APCO service station on March 3 last year. Leading Senior Constable Glenn Abbott aid Caddy “taunted and teased” the victim before throwing the dim sims and chas-

ing him out of the building. Sen Const Abbott said Caddy punched the victim in the face and fled the scene. The victim was “knocked unconscious” and suffered a split lip and grazes on a cheek and the back of his head. Sen Const Abbott said Caddy told police the victim was “a smart a..e”. Caddy’s lawyer, Wendy Gibbons, said the incident was “not quite as simple as an unprovoked assault”. Ms Gibbons said her client was involved in a “verbal clash” with

the victim but admitted he responded “disproportionately”. “He’s very aware of what he risks today,” she told the court. Magistrate Stephen Myall described the attack as “cowardly”. A “verbal exchange” was “no justification for recklessly causing injury”, Mr Myall said. “This is, in affect, gratuitous violence towards another citizen. But for your plea of guilty I may well have considered an immediate term of imprisonment.” Mr Myall convicted and fined Caddy $1000.

BY ERIN PEARSON BROKEN asbestos pipes are threatening public safety at Bells Beach, a union leader has warned. Geelong Trades and Labor Council secretary Tim Gooden said authorities could force closure of the international icon if Surf Coast Shire failed to take immediate action on the two exposed pipes. Mr Gooden called the pipes a “serious threat” to anyone using Bells Beach. “It’s asbestos and what should happen now is the areas must be immediately barricaded with a sign warning people not to touch it,” he said. “Anyone who sits on it or touches it will be exposed to asbestos. Absolutely it’s a risk.” Mr Gooden believed the shire, which manages the Bells surfing reserve, had been aware for “some time” the pipes were exposed. “This hasn’t gone unreported because I know the locals have reported it - they’ve told me - and someone’s written remove on one of the pipes, which clearly isn’t graffiti.” Mr Gooden said he suspected the shire was leaving the pipes until it had secured federal funding for a master plan to redevelop the reserve. “It’s expensive to remove asbestos…but this is something that can’t wait,” he said. “If it was just a piece of pipe that could be buried so it could not be touched it would be different but the pipe at the base of the Bells stairs is susceptible to stormwater and anything covering it will just wash away, like it already has.” The asbestos warning comes as Bells prepares to host its 50th annual international surfing titles at Easter. Parks Victoria closed Lara’s You Yangs last month after heavy rain exposed asbestos pipes. Parks Victoria said it expected to start reopening the park from Easter. Chief ranger Siobhan Rogan said coordinating asbestos removal and recovery work was “complicated”. The works had to satisfy various safety and legal requirements as well as EPA conditions before beginning, she said. Former Bells Beach Advisory Committee members reported concerns about the asbestos pipes to the

Expert warns on tax as MP defends policy

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN MISMANAGING the pricing and timing of a carbon tax would have dire consequences for Geelong, an industry climate change expert has warned. The warning followed polls showing a plunge in Federal Government support after Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s carbon tax announcement. The Independent revealed last week the carbon tax would cost Alcoa $135 million at $20 a tonne. Alcoa head of climate strategy Tim McAuliffe said a carbon tax had to be introduced at a level industry could cope with. “Carbon pricing must ensure costs and the rate of change is tolerable. It

must allow us to adapt to change,� he said. “As an indicator, industries are paying zero to 85 cents per tonne of carbon in China right now. It’s all about international competitiveness. “If we can’t do in a sustainable way, all we will see is (industries) close. They will be picked up elsewhere and jobs exported off-shore where there is a worse emissions performance overall.� Mr McAuliffe said industry would also face rising overheads as power companies passed on their increased carbon pricing costs. Liberal Senator for Victoria Michael Ronaldson said a carbon tax would be

diabolical for communities across the Geelong region. Families would face increased cost of living pressures including “dramatic� rises in electricity and petrol prices. “It will be equally diabolical for industry if Julia Gillard gets this tax through parliament. The people of the Geelong region should brace themselves for significant job losses,� Senator Ronaldson said. But federal Member for Corio Richard Marles said Australia risked being left behind if it did not put a price on carbon. “So far 32 countries and 10 US states have put a price on it,� he said. “We need to secure industrial jobs in

the long-term, so we need to have this debate now. “I’m confident we can change the way we make things in Australia using the innovative industries we have, but that change has to start now. “If we sit on our hands now jobs in Geelong will be at risk in the future.� Mr Marles slammed the opposition’s response to the carbon tax plan. “Now is not the time for scare campaigns but constructive thought on how take the economy into the future.� Mr Marles said he was in regular talks with carbon-tax-exposed Geelong employers Shell, Alcoa, Ford and Blue Circle Southern Cement.

Mr Smart was the inaugural participant in the Geelong: Smart Move campaign, aimed at attracting business to the region. But he has come full circle after selling his business and handing over the reigns to Libby and Alvaro Revelo.

“I was an unknown in Geelong and the Smart Move program really connected me to the local business scene,� Mr Smart said. “The program connected me to 20 local businesses and we still do business to this day. “That was fantastic for someone like me coming in green. It gave me an immediate network. “If ever such a program was offered again I reckon it would

be fantastic for Geelong.� Mr Smart said he would now help other businesses through not-for-profit organisation Small Business Mentor Services, which operates with Victorian Government funding. He also planned to continue his involvement in the community through honorary work with Geelong Chamber of Commerce and as a board member of the city’s yacht club.

BY ERIN PEARSON TOP AUSTRALIAN artists will continue performing on Geelong’s waterfront after a booking agent reached an agreement with Deakin University. Acorn Productions’ Michael Ward was “very pleased� Deakin saved his business when it agreed to change the booking policy for its Waterfront Cafe.

The Independent reported last month that Mr Ward was set to cancel future concerts because Deakin refused to allow bookings 12 months ahead. Mr Ward said the university had reversed its decision to make the cafe “pretty well available� to him. “We’re so fortunate to be able to use a place like the Waterfront Cafe, so I’m happy to see it continue.� Mr Ward said the new agree-

24 hours

ment had allowed him to book top-line acts such as Rose Tattoo and Mental as Anything, which required booking notice of six to 12 months. “I’ve can now locked these shows in due to this agreement.� Deakin University confirmed the new agreement, saying it represented a “better understanding on both sides�.

GAS HEATING SAFETY Beware Carbon Monoxide… It’s a “Silent Killer” A warning to home owners who have gas heating regarding the dangers of carbon monoxide. It is a poison that you can’t smell or taste. But can be given off by your heater without you even knowing it. There have been a number of deaths from carbon monoxide poisoning in Victoria in the last few years and Energy Safe Victoria is aware of countless near misses where people have nearly died from carbon monoxide poisoning. It is mainly faulty or unserviced gas heaters

which can cause carbon monoxide to be produced. Energy Safe Victoria and the Plumbing Industry Commission recommend that gas heating be serviced by a licensed or registered gasfitter before the start of winter. Gasfitters who service the appliance must have a carbon monoxide analyser/detector that has been calibrated correctly. The reading must be less than 10 parts per million (PPM).

Parks set for development

Tourist target The report will go to State Government for development of funding priorities. Geelong Otway Tourism boss Roger Grant was thrilled with the recommendations. “The draft report clearly listened to the industry and identified the major opportunities we have,” he said. “This is not about just throwing away the values of national parks, this is about the critical need in Victoria of identifying projects that can make a big difference from a tourism point of view. It’s about nature-based lodges and similar that will complement the national parks, not take away from them.” Mr Grant said creating a plan-

Banksia Mortgage Fund ARSN 089 852 246 FIRST MORTGAGE INVESTMENTS

ning system that built private sector confidence in the tourism industry was paramount after years of projects bouncing “around and around” without approvals. But Otway Conservation Council’s Fiona Nelson urged State Government to stay out of national parks and ramp-up advertising for existing attractions instead. “Tourism needs to be controlled,” Ms Nelson said. “The forest is really just recovering from intensive logging over the past 30 or so years and needs time to recover. Putting accommodation within the national park doesn’t bode well for a forest and for all the creatures already threatened.”

BY ERIN PEARSON A NEW report has earmarked national park land along the Great Ocean Road for tourism developments. Victorian Competition and Efficiency Commission’s report said tourism to the reigon would stagnate without approval of previously disallowed developments. The draft report said “high-end, large-scale and boutique accommodation” along the Great Ocean Road could attract an influx of tourists from China and India. The region’s tourism centres should also consider investing in harbours, convention facilities, diving attractions and “interpretative centres”.

A HIGH-PROFILE sex therapist will discuss men’s sexuality with “often hilarious stories” to raise money for a prostate cancer support group, a women’s service club has announced. Zonta Club of Geelong said Bettina Arndt would touch on issues including the impact of prostate cancer treatment on sexual capabilities and the effects of the “little blue pill”. “After over 30 years on the international speaking circuit, Bettina is extremely experienced at presenting these often embarrassing topics with humour and sensitivity,” Zonta said. The event would benefit Geelong

Prostate Support Group, which provides emotional support to victims of the deadly cancer. Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia says the disease kills around 3300 Australian men each year, with about 32 cases diagnosed daily. One in nine Australian men develop prostate cancer, the foundation says. Zonta’s Evening with Bettina Arndt will begin 7.30pm on April 7 at Village Cinemas Geelong. Tickets, which cost $20, are available by phoning 0418 521 265 or 0418 482 897 The Independent is a supporter of Evening with Bettina Arndt.

Council closes ‘illegal dump’ BY KIM WATERS GEELONG’S council has closed a Moolap road after people started using it as a makeshift dump for hard rubbish and other refuse. Councillors voted to close Mullanes Road after Greening Australia complained people were using it as a free dumping ground. Councillor Andy Richards said the absence of a council hard rubbish collection and rising tip fees in Geelong had a “connection” with increased dumping around the city. Cr Richards called on council to educate ratepayers on where they could dump hard rubbish “for free or cheaply”. City of Greater Geelong ran its

first and only hard rubbish collection in 2001. Residents have since called for council to reinstate the service. The City’s Geelong Resource Recovery Centre fee schedule lists charges of $12.50 to empty a car boot of hard rubbish, $32.50 for a heaped single-axle trailer and $64 for a double-axle trailer. Cr Richards suggested a monthly “second-hand Saturday” similar to a program in New South Wales for hard rubbish and e-waste collections. Barwon Regional Waste Management Group had sought funding for a similar project in Geelong, he said.

“We need to help low-income families, the elderly and others who cannot afford tip fees or a skip,” Cr Richards said. A Greening Australia Victoria branch spokesperson said the organisation requested the Mullanes Road closure. The spokepserson said illegal dumping had been a problem since Greening Australia started work in the Mullanes Road area three years ago. City of Greater Geelong’s Gary Van Driel said implementating a hard-rubbish collection would cost “the community” between $1.1 million and $1.9 million a year.

Plane dedication Join the club WHILE Avalon Airshow grabbed the aeronautical spotlight last week, a smaller but equally dedicated band of fliers also took to the skies. The members of Geelong Miniature Aircraft Association (GMAA) were flying under the radar at their airfield in Batesford. But even though their aircraft are models, the pilots still had to do their pre-flight checks, keep an eye on the weather and run maintenance. The association grew from humble beginnings on Belmont Common in the late 1960s when local modellers began swapping tips and flying single-channel radio-controlled aircraft. As technology improved, the interest in the hobby grew, president Peter Baker said, and the club was officially born. However, the days of model aircraft buzzing around Belmont Common were numbered, so the club found some wide open spaces on Batesford’s Dog Rocks Road. “Now we have more than 80 members aged from 14 to some of our experienced modellers aged in their 80s,” Peter said. “The sport is not only an enjoyable hobby and pastime but it keeps the mind active and enhances hand-eye coordination and fine-motor skills.”

The Australian Government offers two types of financial assistance for child care: the Child Care Benefit and the Child Care Rebate. Even if you don’t receive the Child Care Benefit you may still be eligible for the Rebate.

It pays up to 50% of your out-of-pocket expenses per child per year up to an annual cap.

The Rebate helps to cover the costs of any approved child care, including out of school hours care.

DESPITE local government in Australia having started 167 years ago, many adjunct citizens’ associations fail regularly. An effective democracy requires that a significant proportion of the electorate not only votes but also take an interest in local government. An essential ingredient of a democracy is participation. Community organisations assist better understanding of issues by establishing a climate for change, which in turn allows unfairness to be better addressed. Participation can create a climate of greater concern, honesty and humanity for the community served by public authorities. If communities are better informed and consulted they are likely to question approaches or decisions, which hopefully persuades or pressures public authorities to perform their duties more sensitively. It is unfortunate the majority of people have little interest in or support for activities or issues that have no effect on their immediate locality. Most people are single-issue- minded and significant numbers distrust representatives or advocates from other towns or wards. The key to success for small associations is to enlist not only those people with something to offer in the way of new ideas but also those prepared to follow through. Notwithstanding the above and the considerable efforts by a few members of Surf Coast Residents and Ratepayers Association, it is disappointing no one volunteered to form a committee, with the consequence that the association will soon cease its activities of being a council watchdog. Ray Gully Torquay

Brutal reality THE ANNOUNCEMENT of more Telstra call centre job losses is of no surprise. Once companies are privatised their loyalty is naturally to shareholders. The mantra of all publicly listed companies is about adding shareholder value. Since laissez-faire capitalism became the prevailing economic orthodoxy back in the 1980s we have seen the privatisation of the power industry, gas and fuel, railways, telecommunications and so on. The economic and social consequences have been devastating, particularly in areas like Victoria’s Latrobe Valley. The old guiding mantra of a social contract between government, industry and workers has been replaced by a Darwinian survival-of-the-fittest brutality. Welcome to the world of tomorrow courtesy of political leaders of all persuasions. Brian Handley Geelong

IT IS evident in the Deakin ward by-election that preferences certainly made the result unfair for voters. The clear winner should have been Angelo Kakouros with the highest amount of primary votes. Admittedly, voting is complex when candidates stand to preference someone else and those who expected their future to be brightest are feeling cheated and robbed. Monique Holmes-Richardson Highton

Certainly stupid THE PRIME Minister’s desperate attempt to maintain the Greens’ favours has resulted in a people’s revolt against carbon dioxide taxation. Greg Combet dragged a skeletal warhorse out of the cupboard when he asserted that “business needs the certainty of a carbon (dioxide) price”. Yes, it most certainly does. That certainty should be a price for carbon dioxide emissions of zero dollars per tonne. Then the power utility companies can get on with implementing their pigeon-holed plans to build the mix of new coal, gas and nuclear power stations urgently needed to secure Australia’s future. Gordon Alderson North Geelong

Silence of the MPs AS A regular visitor to the Geelong area, I ask what the heck are MPs John Eren, Richard Marles and Ian Trezise doing about the proposed carbon tax? Geelong needs its MPs adding their voices in protest, not staying silent or pushing the party line. Do we want manufacturing, such as Ford Australia, going offshore? It’s bad enough there are empty shops and manufacturing places throughout Geelong but this tax will make it worse. Just have chat with retailers. I am sure they are finding times very tough. It doesn’t take an economics certificate to see that even if every dollar of a carbon tax goes back to Australians there will still be a cost to the economy. If the developing world replaces Australia’s reductions of carbon dioxide (CO2) by many times in the next 10 years, how can we reduce either emissions or the temperature, especially if we push business overseas? The Greens want polluters to pay and compensation lower-income-earners for energy consumption. However, this does

not stop business from jacking up prices of consumer products. The carbon tax will deliberately hurt Aussie companies and jobs while more coal is sold overseas to produce more emissions of CO2. More of our jobs and industry will be exported to other countries, costing us countless billions of dollars to try fixing a problem we will be helping make worse. They used to say a vote for the Greens was a vote for Labor. At what point did it swap around? AJ Hooper Point Cook

Green transition IT’S TIME to move beyond environmentalism to transitionism. Environmentalists have focused most recently on climate change, reducing carbon emissions and giving the natural world a stronger voice in human affairs. These are noble aims but tend to ignore the immediate plight of citizens living in growing modern economies. The new green movement is transitionism. As energy, fuel and food costs rise more people recognise the need for a transition to a low-energy future. We can plan now for an organised transition rather than a chaotic one. Transitionism spawned the Transition Town movement in the UK in 2006. There are now more than 300 Transition Towns worldwide, including three right here in Geelong: Transition Bell, Transition South Barwon and Transition East Geelong. Municipal Association of Victoria has a program called Councils and Communities in Transition, which formalises planning for transition so as to strengthen communities and build resilience in the face of what is surely our greatest challenge – the end of cheap energy. The unrest in Libya and high oil prices are just symptoms; the problem is that world oil production peaked in 2006 and there is no readily available substitute for crude oil. We need at every level of government people who understand what rising oil prices will mean to communities and who will advocate for planning to meet future global pressures on our standard of living.

My message in the bottle BY ERIN PEARSON A PUBLIC battle with the bottle has failed to stop comedian Fiona O’Loughlin doing what she does best. The mother of five is still making audiences laugh despite collapsing on stage in Brisbane in 2009. She later explained the incident as a symptom of her serious alcohol problem. But two years later the Alice Springs product has a belly full of fire once more. O’Loughlin’s latest routine, On a Wing and a Prayer, recounts how she prised the dancing shoes off her feet and the devil of drink off her back. “I think I’m missing some gene where you should haven hidden in a cupboard for three months but I chose not to,” O’Loughlin told the Independent. “I felt very grateful for being in the public eye because it kept me safer. This assisted in my recovery. “I decided when I was going to talk about that troubled year that not everything was going in the shame basket.” O’Loughlin said she was blessed to have “such wonderful” friends in the very industry that exposed her flaw. “I’m really grateful to have people like

On a wing and a prayer: Fiona O’Loughlin performs in Geelong on April Fool’s day.

Mikey Robins, Paul McDermott, Akmal Saleh and Tom Gleeson as my peers because they let me be who I am. “Comedy is an extraordinary profession to be in because it’s so small even on a global scale. It’s a fairly unique club to be in.” O’Loughlin waited until she was 36 before having a serious crack at comedy. After realising at a young age her talent for “telling stories”, O’Loughlin decided to lean on family tales for inspiration. O’Loughlin said transposing her “dinner party self” from dining room to stage was harder than it may have appeared. “Open mic contestants are like the frontline of the armed forces – you need them or you’ll have none in 20 years but you never do it as tough,” she said. “I really did need my thick skin in my early days. “I find those memories far more humiliating than what’s happened two years ago. “I guess though if I was a bank manager it would be more awkward.” O’Loughlin will perform at Geelong Performing Arts Centre on April 1.

oft Cafes Geelong is proud to be participating in World’s Greatest Shave 2011 to raise funds for Leukaemia Foundation. The cafes participation follows the diagnosis of friend and workmate Melia Bartholomeusz with acute lymphoblastic leukemia at Christmas time, 2009. World’s Greatest Shave is one of Australia’s biggest fundraising events, with over 125,000 participants across the country raising money for blood cancer victims. “Melia is doing better and has recently celebrated her 21st birthday,” says Soft Cafes shave-off coordinator Kerry-Ann Morrissy. “This is our second year involved in the World’s Greatest Shave, with our team placing in Victoria’s top 30 last year for funds raised. We’re proud to support such a great charity and are excited and determined to raise as much money as we can in 2011.” Many of Soft Geelong’s 25 staff are either shaving or colouring their hair or wearing a crazy wig for this year’s fundraiser with Melia and her family in mind. The staff will conduct their shave-off event from 4.30pm to 6pm this Friday at Soft’s Minerva Road cafe. The event will feature complimentary finger food, while profits from all beverage sales will be donated. “All are welcome to come along and watch the staff colour or shave their locks,” Kerry-Ann says. “If anyone is keen on joining them in colouring or shaving their own hair for the Leukaemia Foundation, they are welcome to do so once a donation has been made.” Secure on-line donations are also available at www.worldsgreatestshave.com.au or at the cafes in: Minerva Road, Herne Hill; Spotlight Centre, Belmont; and Pakington Street, Newtown. “We aim to raise as much money as possible today for this worthy cause,” Kerri-Ann says.

Minor enthusiasts: Ron and June Smeelie found the rare Morris Minor Traveller on Ebay. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 61215

A

sk a Morris Minor enthusiast: what is the ultimate goal? They will all say – to own a ‘Woody’ – a Morris Minor Traveller, according to Portarlington’s Ron and June Smeelie. They reached their goal last year when they bought a Woody on Ebay. The 1966, powder blue Morris Minor Traveller was in Adelaide and Ron and June were on holiday up at Robinvale near Mildura when their South Australian friend put in the winning bid for the car. “We left the caravan at Robinvale and drove over to Adelaide in the ‘Inter’ (Ron has a restored 1950 International L110 van) to get the Woody,” Ron said. June was apprehensive about driving the new Woody. “When we were coming into Adelaide I was thinking how am I going to drive this strange car up all these hills; as it turned out the little Woody flew up the Adelaide hills.” June said. Ron said the Woody had the original 1100 engine reconditioned in Sydney about 20 years ago. The engine had only done 23,000 miles since then, so it was running well. – to page 58

Peugeots than in most upmarket cars due to the preference for that style of transmission among French drivers. It was the only transmission offered with the diesel engines but the petrol four can also be bought with an automatic. The five-speed manual was available for the V6 sedan only on special order. Initially the 406 coupe came only with a four-speed automatic transmission but some five-speed manuals were imported from the model change of August 1999. Check the complete vehicle for signs of extended use in the bush. Look for stone chips on the front of the body and lower bumper and for tiny cracks in the headlights. Also look over the body behind the wheels for stone damage. Dust in the cabin and boot can be another giveaway but the cars are very well sealed and, in any case, are likely to have been thoroughly cleaned before going on sale. Look for wear on the door scuff panels, the lower areas of the door trim and for tears in the seats. Make sure the air conditioning is working smoothly and quietly and that it cools the car down fairly quickly. While doing these checks on the body also look for evidence of previous crash repairs. Check a four-cylinder engine starts promptly and idles smoothly. If it doesn’t there may be a problem with the variable valve timing system. This is easy to rectify and isn’t overly expensive. Diesels will be slower and less smooth than the petrol engines on start-up, especially in the older models. If it’s too bad be suspicious as poor maintenance is a bugbear in any diesel engine. If in doubt, have an expert on Peugeot diesels check it out. Be sure the automatic transmission is reasonably smooth and prompt in its actions and that it doesn’t change gears unnecessarily. Look out for clutch slip in a manual gearbox and listen and feel for rough or slow synchromesh in the gearbox.

BY ERIC BLAIR he Peugeot 406 has all the traditional French automotive attributes of style, comfort and very pleasant handling. Peugeots have a great reputation for standing up well to Aussie bush conditions and have had that reputation since the Redex Trial days of the 1950s. Handling is probably the number one attribute of the 406 for most drivers. The feedback through the steering is close to perfect and even average drivers get a great deal of pleasure from the way the car ‘talks’ to them. A medium to large car, this Peugeot was sold in a big range of models. First off the import ship was a four-door sedan that arrived in Australia in September 1996. A lovely looking coupe joined it in October 1997. The range was completed with the launched of the 406 station wagon in March 1998. In August 1999 the Peugeot 406 range was revamped, with a major facelift with slimmer headlights and a sleeker bonnet. There were mechanical improvements at the same time. Servicing costs are about average for a mid-range European car. These cars are fairly complex in their makeup and only the best amateur mechanics should tackle work on them. Peugeot petrol engine choices are a 2.0-litre four-cylinder and a 3.0-litre V6. The latter isn’t as smooth as you would expect for its type, but provides decent performance. The fours tended to dominate sales so the V6s aren’t all that common on the used-car scene. This French marque was the first to fit diesel engines to passenger cars and stuck with these turbocharged economy units in Australia right through the period when most other marques gave up on imports. Initially the engine had a capacity of 2.1 litres, dropped to 2.0 litres with the new engine design of August 1999. When correctly serviced and driven, these Peugeot turbo-diesel engines seem to last just about forever. A five-speed manual gearbox is more common in four-cylinder

Rare â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Woodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; found on Ebay â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from page 56 â&#x20AC;&#x153;She is a beautiful little car, in light blue, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve called her the Blue Bird,â&#x20AC;? June said. Morris Minor Travellers are quite rare in Australia and during the period of manufacture they were only imported into the country under special order. However June said she knew of at least three owned by Morris Minor enthusiasts in the Geelong area. Morris Minor sedans, panel vans and utes were imported and assembled in Australia, but the station wagon version was fully imported. The Traveller was essentially a station wagon with a varnished wooden frame attached over the steel panels. Sliding windows ran the full length of the van section. The cars were also referred to as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;estate carsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. In England during the 1950s and early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;60s the Woody was one of the highest selling â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;estate carsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Period television police drama Heartbeat features a green Morris Minor traveller driven by Adenfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crotchety police sergeant Oscar Blaketon. June and Ronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own Woody also featured on television when they were in Bendigo last year at the same time as a film crew from the ABC Collectors program. The car was filmed and later appeared in a segment on the program. Only minimal work was needed on the car. Ron said he put a new coat of varnish on all the woodwork. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I also had to replace the windscreen, it had lots of stone ships and had been sand blasted. So I put a new one in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The brakes have also been replaced with the Morris Major

Shared: Ron and June Smeelie both enjoy driving their â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Woodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. system. The original Morris Minor brakes were good for everything except stopping,â&#x20AC;? Ron said. Parts were not a problem, according to Ron, with suppliers in Australia offering after-market spares, as well as a specialist dealer in England who could supply new, original parts or secondhand. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I actually wanted new window rubbers recently so I phoned England on the Monday, ordered them and they had arrived by the end of the week.â&#x20AC;? Who gets to drive the Woody? June said the driving was a shared experience between her and Ron. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But most of the time itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s June who wants to drive. I prefer to sit there and enjoy the ride. At least Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not being told what to do when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in the passenger seat,â&#x20AC;? Ron laughed. More than 45 Morris Minors from around the state, New South Wales and South Australia will be in Geelong this weekend as part of the Geelong Morris Minor Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

On Saturday the cars will be parked in the Old Customs House gardens, opposite the carousel, Eastern Beach Road from 3.30 to 5.30pm. Sunday the minors will be in Queenscliff at the train station reserve from 2.30 to 4.30pm.

Warriors reign in pre-season

PUBLIC NOTICES

BY ERIN PEARSON NORTH Geelong continued its unbeaten run to win Geelong Soccer Cup on the weekend 4-0. Cup tournament liaison officer Russell Butler said the Warriors earned a “ripper win” over a determined Geelong outfit in Friday night’s grand final. “North showed they were more skillful players on the day,” he said. “There’s a lot of pride at stake

The Hon Matthew Guy MLC, Minister for Planning, has appointed an Advisory Committee under section 151 of the Planning and Environment Act 1987 to advise on the planning, consultation and approval arrangements for Section 4C of the Geelong Ring Road. The Advisory Committee will also consider the relative merits and impacts (economic, environmental and social) of the approved alignment of Section 4C of the Geelong Ring Road compared with any other alignments previously considered by Vic Roads, the City of Greater Geelong, or any other relevant government strategic planning investigation. The Advisory Committee’s tasks and process for conducting a hearing to consider these matters are set out in the Terms of Reference dated 22 February 2011. The Terms of Reference can be viewed on the Department of Planning and Community Development (DPCD) website www.dpcd.vic.gov.au/planningpanels by selecting ‘Current Planning Panels and Advisory Committees’. This review is to have regard to the function of the road to provide an east-west arterial road connection, and Barwon River crossing to service the southern suburbs of Geelong and Armstrong Creek, as well as the Bellarine Peninsula. The Advisory Committee is also to consider any additional remedial measures that could be incorporated into the design and development of the Section 4C alignment to address environmental and amenity impacts on existing and future residents. The previous Minister for Planning approved Amendment C232 to the Greater Geelong Planning Scheme which applied a Public Acquisition Overlay (PAO3) to enable VicRoads to acquire the land to construct Section 4C of the Geelong Ring Road. The Advisory Committee will review this part of the Amendment. The previous Minister for Planning also approved as part of Amendment C232 to the Greater Geelong Planning Scheme the application of a Public Acquisition Overlay (PAO9) to enable the Department of Transport to acquire the land to construct the Armstrong Creek West Station and car park (south side). The Advisory Committee will not review the application of the PAO9. Background material for Amendment C232 is available on the DPCD website for information. Copies of this information will also be available for viewing at the following locations: City of Greater Geelong Customer Service Centre 131 Myers Street GEELONG Department of Planning and Community Development State Government Offices Level 4, Corner Fenwick and Little Malop Streets GEELONG VicRoads South West Regional Office 180 Fyans Street SOUTH GEELONG Or online at: http://www.dpcd.vic.gov.au/planningpanels/ The Advisory Committee invites submissions from any party with an interest in the planning of Section 4C of the Geelong Ring Road with regard to the matters set out in the Terms of Reference. Submissions should be accompanied by a Request To Be Heard form ad sent to: Chair Geelong Ring Road Section 4C Advisory Committee Planning Panels Victoria Department of Planning and Community Development GPO Box 2392 MELBOURNE 3001 Submissions can also be sent via e-mail to planning.panels@dpcd.vic.gov.au or faxed to (03) 9637 9700. Request To Be Heard forms can be obtained from Planning Panels Victoria. All submissions will be treated as public documents and will be published on the DPCD website. Submissions must be received by Planning Panels Victoria by close of business on Monday 11 April 2011. The Advisory Committee will hold a Directions Hearing on Monday 18 April 2011 and will hold public hearings in the week commencing 9 May 2011. The location and time of these hearings will be confirmed following the close of submissions. If you have any questions contact Mark Gregory, Action Planning Coordinator, Department of Planning and Community Development on telephone 5226 4001 or email mark.gregory@dpcd.vic.gov.au Any inquiries concerning the hearing process should be directed to Greta Grivas, Project Officer, Planning Panels Victoria on (03) 9637 9692.

In Geelong cup games, Corio and Surf Coast battled it out for third and fourth spot respectively in perfect conditions. A hungry Corio side dominated the game to win 3–0. Butler said he was looking forward to the 2012 return of the inter-league competition despite this year’s cup getting off to a rocky start with sponsorship issues.

to be the top dog in Geelong and it was a great game to watch.” The Warriors play in division one in the north-west competition, while Geelong is in division two. Butler said the pre-season cup was a great opportunity for Geelong to size up the standard of the teams it would face if it earned a spot in the state-wide competition alongside the Warriors next season.

TORQUAY Boardriders Club has won a Victorian teams title at Woolamai beach. In ideal 1.5-metre surf with off-shore wind, Torquay clawed its way back from behind 13th Beach to win the tag-team format final. Torquay went into the titles as

hot favourite with world tour surfers Jack Perry and Nic Muscroft alongside up-and-coming juniors Harry Mann and Todd Rosewall. Perry stamped his authority on the event when he scored over 20 points out of a potential 30. Torquay club vice-president

Cahill Bell-Warren was ecstatic with the win. “I’m stoked we were able to get the trophy back,” he said. “Everyone surfed really well throughout the whole event. We can’t wait to have everyone over to Bells Beach next year to battle for the trophy again.”

Small offerings: Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tina Murphy with a cod from Lake Mulwala last weekend.

Pinkies pester anglers as airshow entertains On the bite BRIAN LONG Grassy Point. Fresh squid accounted for the best captures. Sean Fuller fished the entrance to Swan Bay where he nailed two nice gummy shark. Both fish were over 4kg and took fresh squid heads. Earlier in the afternoon Sean used a berley trail to catch garfish and lost close to the boat a flathead he estimated at 2kg. David Matuch and Andy Schmidt found quality squid on the grass beds off St Leonards over a number of outings. The boys said jig choice was critical, with many colour changes required throughout the day. Brad Neville managed the conditions on Monday night to catch two snapper close to 2kg each and a 4.3kg gummy shark at Collendina Beach. Freshwater anglers continued to struggle with the Barwon River remaining discoloured from Ceres downstream. However, the fishing was fantastic higher up in the running water at Pollocksford where plenty of small redfin were taken on lure. I saw two young anglers having a ball catching carp while fishing the landings near Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Park Bridge with a berley of

CORIO Bay again provided numbers of snapper in the past week as anglers dealt with difficult conditions. Anglers still had to contend with swarms of undersized fish but patient types managed fish to 48cm at the usual land-based locations. North Shore rocks was clearly best, especially on the low tides close to dark when the fishing can be amazing. St Helenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s produced its best fish on tough baits such as squid, with anglers using chicken constantly pestered by undersized snapper. Joel Freeman took bream and snapper on soft plastics just near the silos jetty. Turtleback worms in the Pumpkin Green colour were a winner, with his best bream a respectable 1.4kg. Darren McKenzie fished soft plastics from his Hobie kayak to catch salmon, snapper and flathead within a few hundred metres from the mouth of the Grammar School Lagoon. A huge number of boats launched on the bay for a sticky beak at the airshow, with many also dangling lines to fill in time. This paid dividends for Shaun Sharp who boated a snapper of 4.7kg and two others just over 2kg each while anchored in five metres off the quarries. The outer-harbour spoil grounds produced snapper, pike and flathead but the arrival of a large shoal of salmon to 1.5kg on Monday morning certainly made for exciting fishing. Whiting numbers steadily increased, with reports of bag-limit captures reaching peaking at locations including Point Lillias, Hermsley, Coles Channel and

bread crumbs and vanilla essence. Their corn and bread baits accounted for seven fish between 2kg and 5kg. Reports from the Murray River and other cod waters were disappointing due to high and discoloured water. Renowned Geelong cod anglers Peter and Tina Murphy fished the His and Hers fishing competition at Lake Mulwala where small fish dominated. However, Peter and Tina reported that the water quality was improving and looking fantastic for the Easter break. Another fishing competition last weekend was The King of the Rip, hosted jointly by Bellarine and Drysdale sport fishing clubs. Most competitors fished the Queenscliff area where they contended with easterly winds for mixed results. Drysdale Sportfishing Club produced the winning senior team and Williamstown claimed the juniors title. Apollo Bay legend Stan Wright passed away last week. Noted for his publication Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fish the Otways, Stan was highly respected among the coastal community for his willingness to help anyone catch a fish. He will be sadly missed. My suggestion for fishing over the long weekend would be the entrance to Swan Bay for garfish, flathead and salmon or after dark for gummy shark and snapper. Surf anglers should try Fairhaven or Eastern View with lures if clean water is available on high tide.

GEELONG Cricket Club is seeking its maiden Victorian first XI premiership after finishing the minor season in second place with a dominant outright victory over Melbourne last week. The Cats take on Melbourne again over the next two days at home, a fitting reward for finishing second. The Cats have many of their big guns in pristine form just at the right time, with nearly all their bowlers and batters returning good recent results. If the Cats can overcome their failing in recent years of leaving too much to too few they will give the flag a mighty shake. Geelong Cricket Association also kicks off its finals this weekend, with the race for the top-division flag wide open. In an amazingly close season severely effected by rain, only one game separated first from seventh. Grovedale finished on top, earning a guaranteed second chance should they lose to Lara. This is certainly a distinct possibility because although the reigning premier slipped to sixth after a loss last week, it is still a formidable opponent that Grovedale wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to take lightly. East Belmont jumped to second on the table and, although a mid season form slump had some questioning their credentials, two solid victories set up by its powerful batting line-up has the team right back in the mix. East takes on Bell Post Hill tomorrow, with the Panthers probably regarded as the weakest line- up still in contention. However, their giant-killing results so far this season will mean they will fight tooth and nail and will always take some beating. The final game is between South Barwon and Geelong West. While South Barwon lost last week, the Rams enjoyed a momentous victory over Grovedale to cement their place in the top six and, in doing so, would have made a few teams nervous knowing the batting and bowling depth they possess. Selections: GROVEDALE v Lara, EAST BELMONT v Bell Post Hill, South Barwon v GEELONG WEST. In division two, red-hot favourite Geelong City finished atop the table and begins its long-awaited finals campaign against Marshall.

Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE Marshall has improved in leaps and bounds this season but should be no match for the experienced City. Highton finished in second after a remarkable come-from-behind victory over Waurn Ponds last Saturday, chasing down the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; imposing 300 runs with one wicket in hand. This will give Highton immense confidence when it takes on Torquay in a close match. The final game in the division is between St Albans Breakwater and Alexander Thomson. The Saints havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had it all their own this year and need their batsman to make a worthwhile score that their strong bowling line up can defend. The Vikings need to spread the load and stop leaving it up to their better players if they are to go anywhere in this finals series. Selections: GEELONG CITY v Marshall, HIGHTON v Torquay, ST ALBANS BRAKWATER v Alexander Thomson. Lethbridge finished atop the division three ladder and will take on Teesdale in a mouth-watering encounter. Teesdale has been one of the powerhouses of the competition for years and will be keen to put its finals experience to the test. In the match between Little River and Meredith, both sides possess many big-game players so this could be one of the matches of the weekend in all divisions. In the final game Winchelsea plays Bell Park. Both teams have had up and down seasons, so whoever brings their best form should win. Selections: LETHBRIDGE v Teesdale, LITTLE RIVER v Meredith, WINCHELSEA v Bell Park
