BY KIM WATERS LIFESAVERS have backed “long overdue” plans for walking and cycling trails through 13th Beach dunes. 13th Beach Surf Life Saving Club’s Peter Sutas said Barwon Coast Committee of Management’s proposal was a “win-win situation”. “Our members have given inprinciple support because of the safety factor of people not having to walk on the road to get to the beach or the club,” Mr Sutas said. “If people are walking on dedicated trails it also means they won’t be trampling the surrounding roadside vegetation like what’s happening at the moment.” The plans include a twometre-wide, unsealed track through dunes from 13th Beach’s Signpost car park to the life saving club on the north side of the road. The other proposed unsealed tracks are from
On track: Peter Sutas with plans for the new trails. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 58038 Stephens Parade to either the Signpost or Beacon car parks. Objectors shot down an initial trails proposal in 2007, fearing environmental damage. Geelong Environment Council president Joan Lindros said the organisation would “examine” the new proposal “in detail”. “We would hope that as little
vegetation is destroyed as possible. At least the tracks are inland rather than on the ocean side of the road, which is positive.” Barwon Coast’s Bob Jordan said the committee had put the plan out for public comment until February, after which it would seek approvals.

the lower the developer contributions, the lower the price of blocks of land.” Council infrastructure portfolioholder Andy Richards said the contributions plan was vital to funding Armstrong Creek infrastructure. He defended the levies as a “very competitive figure”. “I’m not sure the developers will embrace it but I don’t think they have any right to complain,” Cr Richards said. “What it does is stop the ratepayers of Geelong subsidising that infrastructure.” Cr Richards expected many submissions on the levy from developers and landowners.
Council wants to charge developers nearly $220,000 for each hectare and an additional $774 for each new home. Mr Di Domenico said the levy would hurt homebuyers. “Ultimately, people have got to realise that it’s the consumer, the homebuyer, who ends up paying the costs. Why should only the homebuyers in Armstrong Creek pay for infrastructure that will be used by the rest of the community. “I can tell you (the levy) is on the higher level of what they charge in metropolitan Melbourne. “It depends on whether the council wants to have an affect on housing affordability but I think
BY ANDREW MATHIESON A COUNCIL plan to slug developers millions of dollars for infrastructure will affect housing affordability in new Armstrong Creek suburbs, according to Urban Development Institute of Australia. Institute Victorian executive director Tony Di Domenico said the proposed levies were “too high”. He believed Geelong ratepayers should help foot the bill. Council voted this week to seek State Government approval for a development contributions plan to fund infrastructure in the development’s east precinct, including water connections.
The James Northﬁeld Trust was set up in 1999 to preserve his legacy. You can view an original of the Geelong poster or purchase a reproduction at the Geelong Art Gallery.

BY ANDREW MATHIESON ALIVIA Bell is one of the silent angels. Close family and even little kinder classmates can see it in her eyes. Since a rare genetic disorder left her unable to walk or talk, they say she looks deep in their souls to their thoughts. For mum Fiona, words and actions are not needed to convey their close bond. “Little girls with Rett syndrome, it’s in their eyes – they’re called silent angels,” Ms Bell said. “They usually have beautiful clear faces and big, clear eyes. It’s almost like she turns and looks inside into your brain. “It’s like she just knows.” The six-year-old is far from suffering in silence. She is surrounded by too much love at her Geelong West Kindergarten to be unhappy. “She has a beautiful smile and she just loves cuddles,” Ms Bell said. “Most of the kinder kids will wait in line and have a cuddle with Livvy most days.” Ms Bell said students as young as three had learned to make eye contact to communicate with Alivia, who was unable even to move her hands. With decreased bone density pre-
venting her from finding balance, a special chair was developed so she could move around her classroom. Ms Bell’s high praise earned the kindergarten a Gateways Support Services award for outstanding achievements in positive inclusion of children with disabilities and additional needs. She described the staff as “a step ahead” in recognising Alivia’s needs. “It’s just been the greatest gift to our family,” Ms Bell said. “We’ve just had this weight come off our shoulders because it’s really stressful when you have a child with severe disabilities and possible medical issues that can be life-threatening.” Ms Bell remembered how her “perfect baby” was born with a big smile. Then she noticed on Alivia’s first birthday that she wasn’t playing with her toys. Two years of confounded specialists followed before a series of blood tests revealed Alivia’s condition. “There is no cure and no treatment,” Ms Bell said. Doctors had told the family to brace for a short life and difficulties in Alivia’s teens. Sufferers usually lived until at least 20 and “sometimes up to 30 to 40,” Ms Bell said.

Advice to ‘forgo presents’ PARENTS should consider forgoing presents for each other to help their families avoid a Christmas debt hangover, according to a Geelong welfare agency. Bethany Family Support chief Grant Boyd said giving “DIY presents” and “time vouchers” such as a weekend of free babysitting were
other options for battling Geelong families. The tips could help many families who “unwittingly overspend during the Christmas period and wake up in the New Year with credit card debt that can take months to pay off”, he said. “We recommend families prepare a

EMPLOYEE GRANTS COMMITTEE DONATES THOUSANDS TO LOCAL COMMUNITY IN 2010 In 2010, Shell’s Employee Community Grants Committee donated a total of $45,000 for local community projects in the northern suburbs.
Serving of beards in bid to raise $100,000 BY ERIN PEARSON SEVEN Geelong men have swapped their modesty for money over the next three months as they itch and scratch toward a quarter of a million dollars for charity. Bradley Smith, Tim ‘Chops’ Sheridan, Matt Cleary, Sean O’Callaghan, Adam Zelley, Daniel Smith and Peter Temple have pledged to ditch their razors for 100 days to raise $100,000 for Leukaemia Foundation.
Mr Smith said the group of Wharf Shed restaurant workmates had already developed “impressive” beards after beginning their fundraiser on November 21. “We spoke to our boss, Peter, in July about the idea and although we’ll look disheveled throughout the summer months he was happy for us to do it,” Mr Smith said. The break-out of beards at the restaurant had intrigued diners. “One table thought the restaurant was

BY KIM WATERS BARWON Head’s traders are bracing for a second summer of frustration after the previous State Government failed to deliver its bridge project on time, according to a community representative. Barwon Heads Traders and Tourism Association vice-president Bernard Napthine said members were bracing for traffic snarls, lost trade and confused tourists. He labelled as “disappointing” a broken VicRoads promise to have works on the new Barwon Heads Bridge and pedestrian river crossing complete before summer. “It’s very disappointing that the pedestrian bridge hasn’t been able to be completed because it will result in difficulties with tourism over summer,” Mr Napthine said. “It’s also bad that the car parks aren’t back to normal for the summer influx. “Originally VicRoads promised the project would be finished for Christmas and would only affect us for one summer.” VicRoads announced last week that

Amish when they came in and saw us all with long beards,” Mr Smith laughed. Mr Temple said the Wharf Shed was collecting $1 donations on top of meal sales and staff tips for the fundraiser until February 28 . The tally was now around $16,000, he said. “What if our $100,000 is the $100,000 that gets us over the line and finds a cure?” Mr Temple pondered.
A visual feast of colour, design and texture celebrating the art of contemporary wool quilt making
contractor McConnell Dowell would complete “configuration works” on the pedestrian bridge in early February. Howeve works on a pedestrian plaza, a boardwalk and car parks would stretch out to May, VicRoads said. Mr Napthine expected the unfinished pedestrian bridge to affect fishing opportunities popular with tourists over summer holidays. “Fishing is always a very popular activity down here and this delay is really disappointing for the kids who often fish off the bridge. “It will be awkward for tourists and residents. It could mean a lot more frustrated people that do come down and instead of enjoying their experience there may be those who find it less than pleasurable.” VicRoads regional director Robin Miles said the road bridge had been delivered “on time and on budget”. “The pedestrian bridge is undergoing final decking and cladding which will be completed in February 2011,” he said. “The final packages of work including the pedestrian plaza, boardwalk and car park are on track with completion expected in May.”

Hopping in to help schoolies FOR YOUTH pastor Mark Gellie, preaching his gospel comes in many forms. Sometimes it’s a sermon standing in front of Christian parishioners. At others it’s barking out team tactics in a footy locker room. And for two weeks a year, handfuls of red frog lollies seem to work wonders. Mark is the leader of the Red Frogs program behind the chewy raspberry favourites keeping thousands of infamous schoolies on the straight and narrow at Lorne and Torquay in the past nine years. More than 250 kilos of the freebies have been transported on pallets to the coast every year since the manufacturer jumped on board the program. “The red frogs idea was just an icebreaker with the schoolies,” Mark reveals. “Handing them out actually helped when we first started but now we’re pretty much recognised around the place. We can now just rock into schoolies par-
Local Legends ANDREW MATHIESON ties and people no longer ask who we are.” A chance meeting at Barrabool Hills Baptist Church in 2001 inspired the then-young uni student to join the Red Frogs program. Mark tells how a concerned helper walked into a Gold Coast corner store, rolled out several notes from his wallet and bought an entire large box of the frogs. He then offered the sweet treats to a group of schoolies partying on a balcony in exchange for an ear and some words of advice. Since then the Red Frog Schoolies Chaplaincy has grown to more than 100 volunteers patrolling Surf Coast beaches, pubs and motel rooms to prevent excessive drinking, drug overdoses, unwanted sex-
Helping handfuls: Mark Gellie with the tools of his trade. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 57981 ual advances and violence. “To be honest, the schoolies have always reacted well to us,” Mark says. “Our guys are now there to cook pancakes and also hand out the frogs. “I mean, everyone loves free stuff.”
The volunteers tried handing out soft chocolates, hard-boiled lollies, even green frogs but nothing – except perhaps Mark – connected with teens like red frogs. He takes time to speak to nearly all students at Geelong schools before the end-of-year celebrations, giving them warnings to
look after their mates, keep room bonds, drink heaps of water and respect the community. “One of the roles we play really well is just putting positive role models in environments where risky behaviour can cause damage,” he says. As a typical alpha young male, Mark experienced all the highs and lows of adolescence. But he can recall the moment of clarity in his life when he quit his stable PE teaching job and joined Barrabool Hills Baptist Church. “I was always around that footy lifestyle and lived that lifestyle pretty hard,” Mark explains. “At 23 or 24 I arrived as a young dad and I saw the damage to a lot of people of my age and the path they were going down, so I decided to make a decision to really get my life right and make some better choices. “Some of the decisions I made in the past weren’t wise.” An unwanted legacy out of his control was the family’s dodgy knees. His dad, Graham Gellie, coached St Kilda for two and a half
seasons in the mid-1980s after being forced to retire aged 28 after just 33 league games in six seasons. As the 1978 club best and fairest winner in his debut season, Graham’s courage was only matched by pain. His career was cut short by no less than 12 knee operations. Mark, through gritted teeth, bares the same scars. “It’s hereditary, I think,” he broods. “I’ve only had three knee reconstructions. “Obviously it’s a genetic thing.” But after playing his last footy game at 26, Mark is wise beyond his years. The 33-year-old coached Geelong Falcons’ under-15s for four years, was its under-18s runner and now works with Geelong’s VFL side. “I felt a real calling to be a role model for others,” he says. “You have that in football clubs because, for me, football clubs can be a fantastic place for young men, but so is the church.”

Rain â€˜restores green thumbsâ€™ BY ANDREW MATHIESON BRIGHT colours have come back to life in Geelong gardens as households find their green thumbs again after droughtbreaking rain. Gardening experts are enjoying a rosy outlook after recent heavy rain doused previous gloomy forecasts that the quintessential, old-fashioned Aussie garden was dying. A leading local nursery reported that it was on track for its best sales in 15 years. Van Loonâ€™s Heidi Martin said the past spring had been a â€œnurserymanâ€™s dream seasonâ€?. â€œItâ€™s really been the past 12 months that weâ€™ve had a good year of rainfall, so there has
been that slow build of people feeling more confident. All their water tanks are full and their gardens are not drying out like they have been,â€? Ms Martin said. â€œI think people have being feeling a bit starved for colour over the past few years and have been concentrating on grasses and super-hardy stuff thatâ€™s not always the most colourful. â€œThereâ€™s been a big increase in (sales of) colourful plant lines.â€? Ms Martin said roses, hydrangeas, delphiniums, daisies and lavenders, once thought to have gone the way of the dinosaur, were blooming again. Limited rain and watering restrictions had forced novice
gardeners to dig up old flowers in favour of drought-tolerant and succulent plants in recent years, she said. But Mrs Martin predicted that spending days with hands buried in moist soil was again on the rise. â€œWeâ€™ve had a lot of customers who havenâ€™t been in for a couple of years just because they have lost some confidence â€“ now theyâ€™re back enjoying their old gardens,â€? she said. â€œA lot of families are also getting into gardening, particularly veggie gardens.â€? Geelong Gardening Club president Peg Bone was thrilled rose gardens and dahlias would resume flourishing across the region.
Members had battled to keep their favourite flowers thriving during the drought and water restrictions, she said. â€œWeâ€™ve had 15 to 20 years of drought, really, so weâ€™ve found people have become more frugal with the amount of water they use because of the expense.â€? Ms Bone said most members relied on installing tanks and using â€œgreyâ€? water. But she feared that a trend to large houses on small blocks was a bigger threat to the future of traditional backyard gardens. â€œTheyâ€™re going to be sorry theyâ€™re not catering for a nice bit of a green look about their places.â€?

letters Lessons from fairies
Climate of money
TORY Sorensen’s letter (Independent, December 3) reflected a widening objection in the community to “religious education” in public secular schools, in particular its indoctrination of Christian theology into children while non-Christian kids suffer the loss of valuable learning time and discrimination against them by religious children and teachers. The religious preaching in public schools contravenes the separation of church and state, a hard-won principle of our society, as Ms Sorensen suggested. That is not to say that religion is not a useful subject. Anthropology shows us how primitive societies invented gods and spirits to explain natural phenomena in a pre-scientific age, creation myths recorded in sacred texts are still honoured beyond their use-by date and history shows the power of religion to chain peoples obediently to the will of priests and kings. But the dark age of religious superstition in western society was dispelled by the scientific revolution and the Enlightenment two centuries ago. If our kids are ever to be educated on life in a world free of supernatural pretence, the fairies must be banished from the bottom of the playground. Tim Saclier Leopold
ROB WALLIS (Letters, December 3) raised the popular chestnut of so-called Big Oil funding climate change denial. However, if one wishes to play follow-the-money, one should be prepared for the realities. Greenpeace claims that around $12 million in funding from fossil fuel industries goes to institutions apparently guilty of disseminating climate change scepticism. Leading UK climate activist George Monbiot can only provide evidence of $3.5 million raised for the “denial industry”. First, even double those numbers would be insignificant. Secondly, fossil fuel companies actually profit from climate change alarmism. The largest carbon-trading recipient in the UK is British Petroleum. One private company individually received $1 billion from the EU’s carbon credits scheme, a $120 billion taxpayer-funded pool. Over $93 billion has been poured into climate change research, activism and green-energy interests. Countless special interests are lavished with this unearned money. The infamous CRU received over $19 million. Ironically, it solicited funding from oil giants, as evidenced when their email scandal was uncovered.
Accusing climate change sceptics of being corrupted by money is the pot overwhelmingly calling the kettle black. We are told to accept “consensus”. Consensus has nothing to do with scientific discovery and everything to do with politics. Mr Wallis regards “neo-con free-marketeer bosses” as inherently evil. He should research the evil committed by governments hungry for other people’s money. Patrick Atherton Lara
Care for communities NEVER in the history of the Liberal and Labor parties has there been such a lack of insight and an almost total absence of generosity of spirit. Both parties are aware that in 1973 there arose in communities around Victoria a campaign by parents for community-based, parent-run child care centres. The centres were successful but because they were almost costless and independent of government agencies and because of the threat of competition they posed to commercial child care both parties were happy to get rid of them. First Labor offered funding to the parents then forced the centres to become legal entities rather than operate under the umbrella of the Health
Department. Then came the threats to withdraw funding, with the excuse being there was not enough money to go around. Those community houses were the answer to the dilemmas we faced today. Parents were given respite without the stigma of charity and were in control of their special needs from the day baby arrived home from hospital. Had the community houses been encouraged all those years ago we would by now have happy homes and creative, community minded, responsible families. It’s not too late to offer to rent out governmentowned homes and facilities for parents and citizens to begin the fairly simple and straightforward task of caring for their own communities and especially their children. June Ryan Corio

Where’s the Justice? LAST year I was surprised to get a speeding fine on Cox Road, Norlane, as I never knowingly speed. I asked friends going to Geelong to check out the stretch of road I drove along - I had turned right from James Avenue and driven to the highway. They informed me it was a dual carriageway with only one 60km/h sign in the centre of the road. I informed the authorities that I had not seen the sign as I would have been looking to my left and behind me to safely manoeuvre from the right-hand lane to the left as traffic allowed. I was informed the fine would not be waived and if I wanted my case heard I would have to take the matter to court, which I requested. Before the case came up I was in Geelong again, so I checked the stretch of road. I noticed that the speed limit sign was obscured by traffic lights for a pedestrian crossing, so no wonder I failed to seen it. I explained all this to the judge and he said I should be punished to deter me from doing it again! Should I acquire X-ray vision? To the original fine the judge added court costs on top of the three hours travelling time each way and two hours waiting for the case, so I essentially lost a whole day to find there is no justice in our legal system. Chris Lawson Mooroolbark
Volunteers burned A LETTER from Kerry Murphy in the October 29 Independent praised CFA volunteers but also contained a lot of spin that deserves an honest response. The letter spoke of the hiring of additional paid firefighters to support volunteers and assured the

public these appointments would somehow boost volunteer numbers. In fact, most of the additional paid staff will actually replace existing and prospective volunteers at an undisclosed number of brigades. The addition of 342 paid staff across an undisclosed number of volunteer brigades is part of a deal with the firefighters’ union rather than a response to public safety needs. The letter failed to mention that the decision was made without consulting volunteers and that CFA still won’t say which volunteer brigades will have paid staff introduced. The letter failed to disclose that the decision would cost taxpayers tens of millions of dollars a year when some volunteer brigades are having essential equipment rationed. The letter also failed to mention that the CFA’s industrial deal with the union restricts and controls operational and administrative staff support for volunteer brigades. CFA negotiated and signed the deal without consulting volunteers on issues in the arrangements that negatively affect volunteers. Much of this makes a mockery of the CFA volunteer charter signed by the Premier and the CFA chairman in 2008 and promising volunteers will always be consulted on anything that may affect them before decisions are taken.

Cr Kontelj’s comments that circumstances beyond his control prevented him from doing something added to the many reasons why residents feel let down by our representatives at all levels of government. He should not be so quick to try scoring points on this issue, particularly given his and council’s failure to act.

Throughout the process YWCA was dismissive and only prepared to make cosmetic changes to the plans. Concerns about site coverage were ignored.

Water safety call ahead of holidays LIFESAVERS have used the lead-up to summer holidays to urge Geelong region parents to ensure their children have â€œstrongâ€? swimming skills. Royal Life Saving Society Australia issued the plea after new figures revealed that boys comprise 80 per cent of drowning deaths among Australian children aged five to 14. Society chief executive officer Rob Bradley said the figures were â€œof grave concernâ€? as thousands of children completed primary school this year with â€œvirtually no ability to swimâ€?. Mr Bradley called the rate of children without swimming skills a â€œticking time bombâ€?. Australian drowning deaths were also at their highest at any time in the past seven years, with 314 recorded last year. â€œThereâ€™s been an overall increase of 20 per cent in two years,â€? Mr Bradley said. â€œThousands of Australian school children are now going through primary schools learning little or no water safety skills. Parents make a false assumption that secondary schools will fill this gap.â€? Mr Bradley called for a â€œgreater focusâ€? on swimming and water safety skills.

Gallery of animation BY ERIN PEARSON FROM the silver screen to a worldwide tour, Adam Elliot’s latest plasticine production has finally landed in Geelong. Stopping at Geelong Gallery during summer, Mary and Max: The Exhibition explores the processes behind the Australian’s cinema animation. The exhibition features thousands of items created for the film alongside imagery from the finished work. Promoters said patrons can see the “imagination, ingenuity and painstaking work” that goes into a 92-minute, stop-motion animation project like Mary and Max. Items on display include character models, sets, props, conceptual sketches and storyboards along with clips from the film and time-lapse sequences showing animators at work. Similar to Elliot’s previous works, Mary and Max chronicles simultaneous life stories of two contrasting personalities, in this case pen pals on different continents over two decades. Mary Dinkle is a chubby, lonely eight-year-old in Melbourne’s suburbs, while Max Horowitz is an obese, 44-year-old New York Jew with Asperger’s syndrome. Elliot said making the film took five years.
“The diversity and complexity of the sets for Mary and Max was extreme. Everything from a desert island to a chocolate heaven needed to be made,” he said. “The New York skyline set was the biggest and most time-consuming and took two months to complete by the art department crew of 20 people, so it’s nice to be able to lift the veil on the whole process for Victorian audiences.” Elliot navigated an intriguing road to stardom. He was raised on an outback shrimp farm with his retired acrobatic clown father, hairdresser mother and three siblings. Elliot was born with a tremor, which he has described as his “chunkywonky” characteristic. After leaving high school he spent five years hand-painting T-shirts at a craft market before arriving at Victorian College of the Arts in 1996 to study animation. He later won the academy award for Harvie Krumpet, which in 2003 was named as one of Annecy International Animation Festival’s top 100 animated films of all time. Mary and Max: The Exhibition will be at Geelong Gallery until February 13.

21st Century. “Many cities in Australia and overseas are recognised by such an icon, for example the Opera House in Sydney and the Statue of Liberty in New York.” Mr Senia said $7000 was already committed to the prize pool but he was in discussions with other individuals and organisations to boost the total potentially beyond $25,000. Mr Senia said the competition would officially begin in February and run for six months. GPAN, an organisation comprising eight professional businesses operating in the city with the support of Westpac, would appoint a judging panel to choose the first-prize winner. The judging panel would comprise Mr Senia, the principal of Senia Lawyers as chairman and, representatives of: City of Greater Geelong, Geelong Otway Tourism, Geelong Tourism, state and federal governments,

A “HUGE” cash prize will drive a competition to design an “icon” for Geelong, organisers have announced. Geelong Professionals Alliance Network chairman Andrew Senia said GPAN was facilitating the competition to encourage development of a new landmark for the city. The Icon for Geelong competition would be open to anyone with a concept or design to lift the city’s profile around Australia and overseas, he said. “We all know Geelong is a great place to work and live. Now we need an iconic landmark or symbol to help promote our city to the world,” Mr Senia said. “We need something that symbolises who we are and where we are going, both to ourselves and the outside world. “This initiative is all about developing a beautiful, viable and inspiring feature to help increase Geelong’s prosperity through the

High Output Panels Less Roof Space Required
Flood laws value fears BY KIM WATERS PROPOSED changes to planning permit requirements for building on flood-prone areas of Barwon Heads have alarmed residents, according to a representative. Barwon Heads Association president Geoffrey Waite said councilâ€™s proposed â€œspecial building overlayâ€? had concerned â€œsome members of the communityâ€? worried about the impact on property values. But others considered the proposed regulations fairly reasonable proposition, he said. â€œIf it comes down to affecting peopleâ€™s land or house values then it will be a big concern for everyone,â€? Mr Waite said. Geelong councillors voted last month to send the proposal to a State Government independent panel. The plan, which attracted 26 objections, included extension of an exist-
ing overlay over â€œcatchment areasâ€? in parts of Rippleside, Barwon Heads, St Georges Road and Western Gully. A council document said submissions against the proposal raised: â€˘ â€œalleged adverseâ€? impacts on property values and development potential; â€˘ questions about the accuracy of flood and drainage studies on which council based the proposed regulations; and â€˘ a need to undertake drainage works to address â€œflooding issuesâ€?. Barwon Heads Associationâ€™s Steve Whickam blamed an â€œoldâ€? drainage system and Barwon Headsâ€™ low-lying landscape for â€œpretty dramaticâ€? flooding. Mayor John Mitchell said the proposal was â€œconsistentâ€? with state and local policies. He believed it would provide a â€œlong-term community benefitâ€?.
Highton kids learn skills in Rotary program
Community: Rotary award winner Sam at Bellaire Primary School.
A GROUP of Highton primary students has won awards for completing a service club program to prepare them for secondary school while enhancing their community spirit. Rotary Club of Hightonâ€™s Junior Community Award went to 24 Bellaire Primary School year six students for completing the program over several months. Rotary district governor Jessie Harman handed out the awards at a presentation night in Hightonâ€™s Lyndon Grove. A Rotary spokesperson said the award program involved community service, physical recreation, skills development and â€œsocial experience participationâ€? such as attending public meetings or arts performances. Participants had to list their achievements and experiences in a diary to complete the program. Award winner Meg Cooper wrote that the program required â€œlots of time and effortâ€?. â€œThe community of Bellaire would like to say a big thank you to all the members involved with the Rotary Junior Community Award at the Rotary Club of Highton for their support in this much-loved program.â€?
When it should be all about â€˜meâ€™ FIT AND HEALTHY WITH SAM JONES
f getting a little bit of â€œme timeâ€? sounds like a fantasy instead of a reality, you are not alone. The absolute last priority for many women and busy mothers is actually getting time for themselves - to have a short break and to regenerate - but it should be the first! Okay, okay, before you say â€œHere we go again, Samâ€™s on her soap boxâ€? I want you to answer a few questions to find out how
much time you have made for yourself this week: â€˘ Was there something you wanted to do but didnâ€™t have time this week? â€˘ When this week did you do something just for you? â€˘ How many things did you do this week for everyone else? â€˘ What is it the one thing you would do just for you if you had the time?
â€˘ How did you feel when you last spent a little time on yourself? Most of you would simply answer the questions with â€œI did nothing for myself, lots for others and I felt great the last time I did such and suchâ€?, so my question is: why are you your last priority? I believe the answer to commit to an activity, to a time, or to an appointment? We make a commitment to a hairdresser
once every six weeks, so the same should go for ourselves on a weekly basis. Commit to a time with a friend to go to the gym, book into a class or personal training session and stick to it. Make it the time for you - it will make a world of difference to you and everyone will notice. Sam Jones is from Contours Geelong West and East Geelong (Newcomb)

Skythrills’ Yak-52 Russian military pilot trainer guarantees thrills for passengers while performing stunts over the ocean off the Bellarine Peninsula.
Flight of fancy ike the name suggests, Skythrills is the most excitement anyone could have high in the air. Owner and chief pilot Jeremy Miller says Skythrills offers extreme adventure seekers a “ride of their life” with aerobatic flights over the Bellarine Peninsula. “It’s a chance for people to experience what it’s like to be an aerobatic pilot like the Red Bull air race pilots but not quite like being an air force pilot,” Jeremy says. “Each flight is customised to the individual, so although we’re going out to give them a wild ride,
once they’ve had enough we slow things down.” Skythrills flies out of Barwon Heads in a Russian-designed-andbuilt military plane used to train air force pilots until mid-1990s. When the flights reach 5000ft, or 1.5km, above the ocean, Jeremy introduces some gentle loops and basic rolls to demonstrate what the G-force is like. Passengers can then experience more-advanced manoeuvres at up to 400km/h and six positive Gs – equivalent to six times their own body weight. “We go up there to share a part of our world,” Jeremy says.
“It’s something we are privileged to be able to do and share with people.” Skythrills also offers a DVD of each customer’s flight because Jeremy says standard cameras are hard to hold when they are six times their normal weight. Jeremy previously ran an aerobatic school in Perth as the chief flying instructor and pilot until establishing Skythrills six months ago. With 14 years of flying and numerous aerobatic titles to his name, Jeremy specialises in teaching aerobatics to pilots.

with Alcoa, which was recently acknowledged at an Australian Business Arts Foundation Awards. Alcoa Point Henry HR business partner David Monahan attributed the success and longevity of the partnership to a shared vision of “providing Geelong people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities with access to the arts”. The new theatre season is overwhelmingly about great storytelling across nine incredible stories. The season begins with Love Letters, a story of enduring yet illfated love, starring two of Australia’s favourite performers, Ian Stenlake and Rachael Beck. Then follows Breast Wishes, an uplifting new Australian musical, tells of life, love, family and silicon. The comedy continues with Peter Houghton’s Commercial Farce, a new take on the magic of farce, a time-honoured tradition of the theatre. In Rainbow’s End the audience gains an insight into early ‘50s Australia as seen through the eyes of three generations of Koori women. Then two icons of Australian theatre, Nancye Hayes and Reg Livermore, take to the stage in the world premiere tour of TURNS, a
journey through the colourful and much-loved world of pantomime and follies. A gripping story of war and coming-of-age emerges in the new Australian play Capture the Flag by award-winning playwright and director Toby Schmitz. Then one of Australia’s most renowned storytellers, Joanna Murray-Smith returns to GPAC with The Gift, an intriguing insight into modern moral dilemmas. The season moves into the sporting arena with Krakouer, based on the lives of footballers Jimmy and Phil Krakouer. Closing the season will be Namatjira, the deeply moving story of Australian water colourist Albert Namatjira, whose beautiful paintings told important narratives about our nation. In addition to the theatre season program, GPAC is offering subscribers first option to experience opera at its best with Oz Opera’s La traviata, appearing for one show only in The Playhouse. Subscriptions for GPAC’s 2011 Alcoa Theatre Season are now on sale online at www.gpac.org.au, by phoning the box office on 5225 1200 or visiting 50 Little Malop St, Geelong.
eelong Performing Arts Centre (GPAC) has unveiled a spectacular nine-show line-up for its 2011 Alcoa Theatre season, promising fantastic performances from Australia’s best companies. The new season was launched in the Playhouse Theatre on December 2 when up to 800 people gathered to hear about the shows on offer in 2011. Popular theatre and television performer Eddie Perfect hosted the event, his trademark humour and wit adding plenty of spice to the evening. General Manager Jill Smith said GPAC’s 2011 Alcoa Theatre Season had a strong emphasis on great writing and intriguing reallife stories, while the line-up would include some of Australia’s best-known and most-loved performers. “We’re looking forward to a fantastic array of celebrated performers including Ian Stenlake, Rachael Beck, Nancye Hayes, Reg Livermore, Christine Anu and Richard Piper, but behind the razzle and dazzle is a season of substance and quality,” Ms Smith said.

BY ERIN PEARSON â€œAMBIGUOUSâ€? planning laws have delivered the Surf Coastâ€™s first five-storey building, according to a Torquay councillor. Ron Humphrey blamed the Surf Coastâ€™s â€œeasily challengedâ€? laws for RACV winning an appeal to add an extra storey to an accommodation centre proposed for Torquayâ€™s formerly public golf course. Cr Humphrey was â€œsympatheticâ€? to residents opposed to the development. â€œIâ€™d like to see councils given the power to be more descriptive in planning controls in relation to the developments happening down here,â€? he said. â€œI respect the decisions made by the umpireâ€Śbecause we need to get behind an organisation such as RACV that will bring tourism to the area but what happened with RACV was that a lack of planning controls opened the door for it.â€? Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal overturned Surf Coast Shire councilâ€™s earlier rejection of the RACV proposal. The motoring giant, which took over the course site from Torquay Golf Club, previously earned approval for 67 motel units in a 16-metre-high development but wanted to add 25 rooms in another storey. Geelong Otway Tourismâ€™s Roger Grant backed the development as â€œincredibly importantâ€?. â€œItâ€™s an exciting development. I accept itâ€™s controversial but, purely from a tourism point of view, itâ€™s difficult not to be excited about it â€“ itâ€™s right at the start of the Great Ocean Roadâ€? The proposal is part of RACVâ€™s $90 million golf site redevelopment. RACVâ€™s Sue Blake expected the project to be complete in mid-2013. The additional level would allow the resort to â€œmove intoâ€? the conference and wedding market,

High performance Nissan BY ERIC BLAIR he Nissan 370Z is the most powerful Z convertible yet and returns the Japanese car to where it all started with the 240Z a high performance sports car which had a top speed of more than 190 km/h. The 370Z Roadster has an identical mechanical package to the 370Z coupe launched in May last year. But the roadster gets new 19-inch wheels which will come as a no-cost addition to the coupe, which has 18-inch wheels, from April this year. The roadster also gets a one-touch fast-folding lined roof for the first time. The deployment time for the roof is around 20 seconds. Around $70,000 puts one on the road, making it about a third of the price of a Porsche 911 cabriolet. While the Japanese sports car isnâ€™t as fast or as refined as the German one, it isnâ€™t far behind. However, the 370Z simply doesnâ€™t have the same cachet as the 911 â€“ and no amount of money can increase the image of any
product, no matter how hard the marketing guys work at it. Visually the roadster looks the part of a high-performance machine. At 5.5 seconds to 100 km/h for the six-speed manual and 5.8 seconds for the sevenspeed automatic, the car also walks the walk. The rag top roof line has a cantilever appearance which enhances the carâ€™s already tough road stance. The bigger wheels complement the carâ€™s aggressive road presence even further. At the heart of the Roadster is Nissanâ€™s 245 kW, 3.7-litre V6 engine. Thereâ€™s 363 Nm of torque on tap at a peak of 5200 rpm, but this doesnâ€™t demand that you have the engine spinning at big speeds because thereâ€™s a decent amount of pulling power from around 2000 revs. Thereâ€™s acceleration to back up the appearance. At 5.8 seconds to 100 km/h for the seven-speed automatic, the hot Nissan shows itâ€™s not only about looks. Typically the new 370Z Roadster will use about nine to
ten litres per hundred kilometres on the open road if itâ€™s driven moderately, and 11 to 13 litres per hundred around town. To reduce weight the 370Z has an aluminium bonnet, doors and boot lid. This is in the A-pillars, the doors, boot opening and side sills. This body stiffening has resulted in negligible scuttle shake - the scourge of many convertibles even over rough roads. Handling is sharp and precise with plenty of feel through the steering wheel and the seat of the pants. This Nissan sports is strictly a two-seater, the purest form of sports car. The interior has ample space for the fortunate two, and thereâ€™s a reasonable amount of stowage space in the door pockets and the centre console, with small bins behind the seats that can cope with handbags, camera cases and the like. The 370 Z roadster returns to the Z ethos and could well earn its own nickname as the â€˜poor manâ€™s Porscheâ€™.

‘Lady Cats’ reveal initial coach BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG’S new national women’s basketball side had appointed a coach and signed eight players just weeks after winning the official go-ahead. The team has named Paul O’Brien, who has previously coached state and national teams, as coach of the Supercats women’s squad. O’Brien said the players were already “wellversed” on their opposition even though they had yet to play their first season in South East Australian Basketball League. Many recruits to the “Lady Cats” had already played against the league’s big guns, he said. “Candice Rogers was a great Melbourne player and has had senior experience, Anna Teague while studying in Bendigo was with the Bendigo Braves and Spirit programs and Maddy Taylor has been on Bendigo summer rosters. “The core group is very experienced players at a number of levels. “They’re certainly aware of the challenges involved to take them from a successful Big V team to a successful SEABL team.” O’Brien said he was confident his side could contest finals within a few years. “If we put our best 11 on the floor for the year then we’ll be a very competitive team from day one,” he said. “We can only control our own destiny but we’re certainly in the mix to make finals. “The last AFL coach that said he’d make the finals was sacked two years later, though, so I guess if we’re fortunate to make finals in our first year great or second year then fantastic. “Of the 13 teams in the competition, with six finals sports we’re potentially a team that could finish around fifth to 10th next season.” O’Brien’s coaching resume includes roles with Perth Lynx and Bendigo Spirit WNBL sides. He works as a teacher in Melbourne and will remain in the state’s capital but denied the commuting would affect his ability to coach. The women’s squad has so far signed Rogers, Teague, Taylor, Kylie Morrissy, Ellie Stevens, Jessica Watson, Chloe Little and Cortney Williamson for next season. The side will play its first SEABL game at home on April 2.
sport On the bite BRIAN LONG TORQUAY youngster Carlo Muncey has won On the Bite’s Christmas picture prize draw of $2000 worth of Shimano fishing tackle. The winning picture of Carlo with his 6kg snapper taken offshore from Torquay was chosen from over 1200 entries for the weekly Shimano soft plastics outfit prize, which began in mid-October. Readers should keep their pictures coming for another giveaway competition to start in the new year. Snapper continued to be the dominant species over the past week, with most captures from Corio Bay’s outer-harbour. However, Fred Harris put in a few hours fishing Stingaree Bay to land 11 fish over two outings, with his best just over 4kg. Fred had all his success on the two hours after high tide. Darren McKenzie fished Wilson Spit where he caught nine small snapper until just on dark when all three rods screamed off. Darren lost one fish but caught two of 5kg. Darren didn’t register another bite for the next two hours but returned the following day when he caught another two big snapper at exactly the same time as his 5kg pair. Gordon Holt found fish on his fish finder just off Point Richards in 11m of water where he landed seven fish all over 4kg on squid heads. Joel Tanner fished in 22m off St Leonards with downriggers to land 14 snapper on Rapala barra lures. The smallest fish was just 32cm but the best was 6.4kg. Also trolling nearby was Noel Richmond and his sons who also caught 14 fish averaging close to 2.5kg. Casting soft plastics off the spoil grounds at Hermsley saw fair numbers of small snapper most around the 35cm mark but Terry Peterson cast soft plastics on the spoilgrounds off Hermsley to catch quality fish
Winner: Carlo Muncey, 10, with his $2000 worth of Shimano gear. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 58137
Caught: Carlo’s winning snapper picture, left, and Peter Murphy with his 68cm cod, right. over 3kg each. I caught five pike to 85cm at North Shore rocks just on dark using small, metal, baitfishprofile lures. Queenscliff’s cut had silver trevally taking small curl-tail grubs in the Motor Oil Gold colouration. Swan Bay’s entrance produced plenty of squid on small jigs, while whiting were taken nearby just off Duck Island on the flood tide. Tony Harris fished Black Rock to catch snapper to 38cm and two big whiting to 48cm using fresh squid during the two hours leading up to dark. Casting lures from the beach at Fairhaven, Paul Knott hit a fantastic shoal of salmon. Most were under 1kg but he landed around 20 fish in a hot two-hour session. Torquay’s Spring Creek
rewarded patient soft plastics anglers with quality bream to 38cm. Gulp worms and Squidgy Wrigglers in the natural colours were the best. Wurdee Boluc Reservoir produced redfin and trout, with lures such as Atomic shads and Pegron minnows ideal. Shaun and David James fished Lake Bullen Merri for a total of 16 trout. Most were small but two weighed 2.1kg and 2.2kg, with the boys using a variety of Powerbait colours. The Kidman family spent a few hours fishing McLeods Waterholes at Drysdale for carp, with their catch of four including a huge fish just over 10kg. Families should also find Cunningham Pier ideal for snotty trevalla from daylight to around 9am or from 6pm until dark this weekend using chicken for bait.

The Barwon River estuary is producing against, so the Ozone Jetty on the top of the tide should return salmon, mullet and trevally on bass yabbies, sandworms or shrimp. The Edwards River yielded some of the bigger fish, with Don Forbes catching a 14kg fish on shrimp. However, Don was outdone by his brother who scored a beauty of 21kg. Peter Murphy packed the family up for a week at Lake Mulwala where the conditions were not ideal. However, Peter’s patience paid off when he landed a cod of 68cm on a live bardie grub before releasing his fish to fight another day.

Cats’ final challenge WITH TWO of the three twenty20 matches in this year’s fixture played last weekend for a score of one win and one loss, tomorrow’s third match in the series will be crucial to Geelong Cricket Club’s finals chances for this season. Sitting third on the ladder, the Cats take on fifth placed Carlton tomorrow, making this easily the most important game so far this season for both clubs. Last Saturday Geelong defeated North Melbourne thanks to solid contributions from all batsmen before Marc Carson claimed four wickets to give the Cats a comprehensive 57-run victory. On Sunday the going was tougher as Casey South Melbourne set an imposing target of 162 for victory. Despite Matthew Harrison and Justin Foss batting well, the target proved too much In Geelong Cricket Association, the rain stopped enough last weekend to allow a full round of results and with it the ladder finally started sorting itself out a little. North Geelong finally completed a game and was relieved to finish on the positive side of the ledger after a tense 10th wicket partnership got it over the line against Geelong West. North Geelong will be desperate to back that up tomorrow against Grovedale in a round of one-day matches. While Alf Clark still stands out as the dominant player in the Magpies’ batting order, the likes of Sam Hall and Andrew Fergusson, along with Anthony Armistead and Marco Sticca, can all be counted on to step up when required. Grovedale, though, has been quietly going about its business, claiming two wins from two completed games and also boasts an experienced line-up keen to grab another flag while the premiership window is still open. North will be brave but may not have the class to claim the points here. Selections: Manifold Heights v SOUTH BARWON, LARA v Leopold, ST JOSEPHS v Geelong West, BELL POST HILL v Thomson, North Geelong v GROVEDALE, Newton and Chilwell v EAST BELMONT. In division two, Guild St Mary’s has
Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE been in terrific form and gets the chance to prove itself against benchmark team Geelong City tomorrow. Guild St Mary’s boasts an exciting mix of experience in the likes of Beau Carroll and Justin Larkins, with some quality youngsters such as Tim Brain, fresh from a six-wicket haul last game against Alexander Thomson, which was a match that looked very much like an outright victory for Guild St Marys for most of the game until a late Vikings surge saw them almost claim a backdoor second-innings victory. Selections: Guild St Mary’s v GEELONG CITY, Marshall v WAURN PONDS, NEWCOMB and DISTRICT v Alexander Thomson, ST PETERS v Highton, ST ALBANS BREAKWATER v Torquay, MURGHEBOLUC v North Shore. Bell Park takes on Bannockburn in division three. Both sides find themselves struggling to keep in touch with the top six, making this game very important if either holds any hope of contesting this year’s finals. Both teams had good victories last round, so they go in with solid form and confidence under their belts, which should make for a cracking encounter. For Bell Park, Mitch Trask has been important at the top of the order as well as chipping in with the ball, while, for Bannockburn, the Hickleton boys, Sam, James and Zach, are all match-winners capable of tearing a game apart. If one of them gets away tomorrow, Bannockburn should win. Selections: CORIO v Corio Bay, Inverleigh v MEREDITH, Lethbridge v TEESDALE, WINCHELSEA v Little River, BANNOCKBURN v Bell Park, Modewarre bye.

New committee saves historic highland gathering the pipe band world and this has jeopardised our work to make the city the permanent home of the (Australian championships). “It will still need something special in terms of support from City of Greater Geelong, Victorian Scottish organisations and others to resurrect this bid. The next opportunity is 2014.” Mr Fraser said the new committee would continue the search for a new gathering site after losing Queens
Park in 2009. Ward councillor Stretch Kontelj was “looking forward” to working with the new members. “The new committee will put a formal proposal through to council and I’ll work with them to determine a location for the gathering next year,” he said. “I haven’t ruled out Queens Park as a location. It’s a major event for Geelong and it’s one that’s very well-supported.”

high-sea-level rise and we have major risks whichever way you look at it.” Mr Cheeseman said Federal Government developed the maps with Cooperative Research Centre using the “highest resolution elevation data currently available”. "The maps provide useful initial information to decision-makers to prepare for potential risks from rising sea levels in coastal areas. “I urge councils and planner to act on this and I believe the state planning authorities must now prohibit development in vulnerable areas so that private and public investment in protected.” Mr Cheeseman said the maps highlighted the importance of the Gillard Government’s plan for a carbon tax.
Man fined for ‘bird-flicker’ assault A WINCHELSEA teen has been convicted for punching an exfriend in the face for giving him “the bird”. Magistrate Ron Saines also fined 18-year-old Michael Smith
$600 after he pleaded guilty to trespassing and recklessly causing injury. Geelong Magistrates Court heard Smith followed the victim home on November 15 before
accusing him of “being a smart a...e”. Mr Saines told Smith that punching someone in the face because they “flicked you the bird” was “childish”.

Officer struck POLICE are hunting a hit-run driver who left a Corio policewoman injured on Geelong’s bypass. Police said the driver struck the officer while she was intercepting a vehicle near the ring road’s Ballarat Road turn-off on Monday afternoon. TORQUAY-based international surfing products company Rip Curl has taken over a string of 15 surf and streetwear stores in Western Australia, according to a company statement. Rip Curl said it bought the mall-based Waves, City Surf and Cite stores to ensure the company’s products “continue to be presented” in Western Australia.
Kinder costs GEELONG ratepayers face “big implications” from Federal Government policy to ensure every child has access to 15 hours of kindergarten a week by 2013, councillors have warned. Council issued a statement saying the policy would force a 50 per cent increase in Geelong kinder hours “above currently funded levels”.
Colourful ambassador A PHOTO agency owner who dabbles in nightclubs and dying his hair various colours is a newambassador for Geelong, the region’s peak tourism body has announced. Geelong Otway Tourism’s Roger Grant said Darren Lyons, who had a reputation as “just a little out there”, was the organisation’s second appointment as an ambassador.

Homes ‘under water’ in new sea-rise maps • roads to Point Henry, Breamlea and Barwon Heads would be underwater; • inundation of an eastern section of Torquay’s The Sands estate; and • “broad-scale foreshore inundation” across the Surf Coast and the Bellarine Peninsula. Mr Cheeseman said the maps backed up his own predictions of climate change disaster across the region. “We are more vulnerable to climate change and rising sea levels than just about any other region in Australia and the new maps absolutely back up the private research I commissioned four years ago. “This new date provides scenarios covering low-level, medium-level and
A CONVENTION centre, a new Yarra Street pier and a mineral spa are the next steps in the ongoing redevelopment of Geelong’s waterfront, according to councillors. They included the proposed facilities and attractions in a new draft master plan for the “next phase of development” along the waterfront between Limeburner’s Point and Rippleside.
LEOPOLD’S Christine Simons and two-year-old daughter Laney are pictured amid a snow flurry in central Geelong on Wednesday. The duo enjoyed a brief winter wonderland near the intersection of Little Malop and Moorabool streets as Central Geelong Marketing turned on snow machines as part of activities to attract Christmas shoppers. A Central Geelong spokesperson said the forecast was for more 15-minute flurries at 11am and 1pm each day until December 24. The “realistic” snow evaporated within 90 seconds, the spokesperson said. “It leaves no messy residue, is odourless, nonallergenic, non-slippery and will not stain.”
BY KIM WATERS RISING sea levels will eventually flood Geelong Grammar School, Corio Bay Yacht Club and Point Lonsdale, according to Corangamite MP Darren Cheeseman. He released images of new Department of Climate Change maps on Wednesday showing rising seas would also submerge coastal properties across the region in the next 90 years. Mr Cheesmean said the department had identified Geelong as one of the regions set to be “worst affected” by rising seas. The maps also predicted: • flooding of homes and a caravan park at Ocean Grove;
“The maps show we must act to tackle climate change and that establishing a value on carbon pollution right across the economy must be our highest priority.” Geelong weatherman and climate change sceptic Lindsay Smail accused Mr Cheesman of promoting an “alarmist-type” theory. “He won’t be here in 90 years for everyone to see the egg on his face,” Mr Smail said. He believed the maps were “politically driven rather than scientifically proven”. Scientists had found that sea-level rises in the Pacific were due to shifts in Earth’s tectonic plates rather than socalled climate change, Mr Smail said.

Libs ‘dump’ dam study for Otways BY ERIN PEARSON THE COALITION will deliver its pre-election commitments to the state seats of Geelong and Bellarine despite failing to wrest them from Labor at November’s election, Liberal MP Andrew Katos has pledged. The South Barwon MP, who moved into the Belmont office of his Labor predecessor this week, said he was prepared to be a “busy man” as he worked to roll-out the coalition’s preelection promises to the region. “If we made a commitment in the pre-election period we will still commit. I will have a very busy office but I think all the projects we made commitments to need to be honoured,” Mr Katos said. “I made it clear during the campaign to listen to the people of South Barwon and represent their views. My office door will always be open and I’m certainly going to represent them.” Mr Katos said the Coalition Government would “immediately” start work on “big ticket” promises such as a stand-alone Torquay high school, kindergarten upgrades and a review of a controversially proposed 4C bypass route, south of Geelong. “The ministers are well aware of the issues down here,” he said.

BY KIM WATERS THE LIBERALS have dumped their pre-election promise to investigate building a dam in the Otways, according to new South Barwon MP Andrew Katos. He revealed his party dumped the plan in the lead-up to last month’s state election, which the Liberals-Nationals coalition won to seize government. Mr Katos told the Independent this week that the new State Government’s water policy included “no construction of any dam in the Otways”. The first he heard about the decision was during the preelection campaign in November, he said. “I got that information during the campaign from Peter Walsh (now Minister for Country Water Resources).” Mr Katos said the Baillieu Government would stick with Labor’s controversial plan for a diversion weir at Dewing Creek. “As far as I know it’s still being constructed. That’s the policy we’ve come up with.” Mr Katos launched his push for an Otway’s dam in the Independent in 2008. Earlier this year he labelled the weir plan “hypocritical”, saying “all options” for boosting the region’s water supply “should have been considered”. “Everything should have been put on the table so that we could make an informed decision about this. It’s just a sensible exploration of policy,” he told the Independent. Former Labor South Barwon MP Michael Crutchfield, who
