Lights bid for Skilled

Maggie still cooking her way after century BY ANDREW MATHIESON WHEN Maggie Ross demonstrated she was good enough to cook for the Queen Mother in her day, whipping up a meal in the kitchen was always going to be a hard habit to break. Now going strong at 100, Maggie still loves nothing better than cooking for her 73year-old daughter in the kitchen of their Hamlyn Heights home. Although cakes are Maggie’s speciality, when the mother celebrated her centenary birthday milestone this week she deserved to put aside the wooden spoons and mixing bowls to be treated like a queen for a day. Daughter Cecilia Grassick marvelled at her mum’s independence as she entered her second century. “She tells everyone all the time that she still looks after us, that we don’t look after her,” Mrs Grassick said. “She gets around every day and likes to bake a cake once in a while, so she still cooks and, yes, loves ironing – an unusual woman.” The “very active” Scot immigrated to Australia in 1967 after living a widow’s life following the death of her husband in World War Two. Mrs Grassick said Maggie fondly remembered as an eager 14-year-old girl feeding the royals traditional fare when they visited Scotland on weekends. “She was a young girl working in Darmody Castle when the Queen Mother and her husband were the Duke and Duchess of York and they came up to the castle for the pheasant shooting,” Mrs Grassick said. Maggie celebrated her 100th birthday with family and friends at Scots Presbyterian Church in Geelong West on Wednesday.

BY ANDREW MATHIESON PLANS for floodlights at Skilled Stadium have given Geelong hope of hosting AFL finals, according to Cats chief executive Brian Cook. He told radio station SEN the club’s board secretly believed light towers were the last piece of the puzzle in overcoming frustrations at having to play “home” finals on the MCG. “I think there still may be an opportunity when we get the lights that we could have a possible final here,” Mr Cook said. Additional plans to boost the ground’s capacity to at least 35,000 by 2012 could also help entice rugby league, union and soccer fixtures, he said. Installation of lights and the capacity expansion would allow rival Victorian AFL clubs to play home matches in Geelong rather than selling matches interstate. Mr Cook said the expansion could pave the way for the lights. “That’s on the agenda (and) has actually been on our agenda for a little while,” he said. Lights would make playing at Skilled Stadium “a touch more palatable” for other AFL sides. State Government committed $25 million to a new grandstand at the northern end goals last week as part of stage three of Skilled Stadium’s redevelopment. Mr Cook said a successful

Australian 2022 World Cup soccer bid would secure funding for lighting and further increase capacity to 44,000. “Lights are not in stage three but they are for the World Cup, suffice to say there is a couple of funding agencies that may want lights – maybe the City (of Greater Geelong) do, maybe the AFL do for their fixturing.” Mr Cook said reports the new northern grandstand would be named after Gary Ablett were speculation. “We have actually kept both goal ends - one for the Doug Wade stand and one for the Gary Ablett Snr stand - and that decision was made some years ago. “However, it has to be finally made and endorsed by the board of the time whether that’s in five years or 10 years time.” But the third of the new Geelong grandstands, which have cost $45 million, could be scrapped if Geelong secures World Cup matches. The plan would then be to rebuild the stadium’s entire western side along the lines of the newest premiership stand. “You’re talking a couple of hundred million dollars being placed into this stadium forever then and having a fantastic legacy for Geelong if we win the World Cup,” Mr Cook said.

BY KIM WATERS CERESâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cameron Henderson is coming back down to Earth after an emotional roller coaster ride to the finals of television show Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Got Talent this week. The 42-year-old singer/songwriter was runner-up to a breakdancing group after tipping out of the final episode his son Taylor, who finished third. Mr Cameron finished the program with a consolation prize of singing the national anthem at the MCG at the start of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s AFL grand final. Mr Cameron, a builder, said he only auditioned for the show after Taylor persuaded him to tag along as moral support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were standing in a line of 500 people at that first audition and were just about to go in when I walked off to the side and sat down because I thought I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it,â&#x20AC;? Mr Henderson revealed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When Taylor got to the front of the line he turned to me and said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Come on dad, you can do thisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, so I went in with him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It turned out to be the best decision Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever made.â&#x20AC;? The self-taught musician said he had received â&#x20AC;&#x153;quite a few callsâ&#x20AC;? from industry professionals after the finale but was â&#x20AC;&#x153;still processingâ&#x20AC;? his options. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a couple of really good chats with people interested in my future as an artist but I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really reveal more than that at this stage,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll continue with my building because I have a few contracts to finish up but after that if it turns out that I can make a living from this I will definitely be considering it as an option. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all so new to me and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just learning as I go.â&#x20AC;?

Minister ridicules bid for ‘air race’ over bay

in brief

BY ANDREW MATHIESON A STATE Government minister has ridiculed Geelong’s chance of hosting a famous international air race, instead raising hopes for Australia’s audacious 2022 World Cup bid. Sport Minister James Merlino poured cold water on the state coalition’s bid for a Red Bull Air Race in Geelong. “After ringing every last dollar they could out of the air race estimates, the proponents (the Liberals) put its figure at $20 million – a dubious conclusion to say the least, even more so given the Red Bull Air Race would cost considerably more yet make considerably less than, say, a Tiger Woods’ visit to

TRUCKIES will face fines of $358 from July 1 for driving in the right hand lane of the Princes Freeway between Lara and the Western Ring Road interchange, State Government has announced. Roads and Ports Minister Tim Pallas warned truckies that the bans, first revealed in March, would apply 24 hours a day.

Victoria,” Mr Merlino told parliament. “Which event would get more international exposure, economic investment, tourist visitation and fan support? It’s not rocket science.” The Red Bull Air Race series runs over some of the world’s best-known cities’ waterways, including Perth’s Swan River. The events attract thousands of onlookers and an international television audience. Pilots navigate twists and turns against the clock through a sky-high obstacle course consisting of several “air gates”. The Opposition rolled out its plan late last year to bid for one of the 18 races to enhance Geelong’s aviation reputation.

The Opposition argued the event over Corio Bay would provide a $20 million annual windfall for the region compared to staging costs of about $4 million. The Government boasted Geelong would reap $928 million in economic activity from hosting World Cup matches, including more than 500 new jobs as part of a $320-million upgrade of Skilled Stadium. Mr Merlino said the “alternative” opposition plan had “gone absolutely nowhere”. But Liberal leader Ted Ballieu’s senior spokesperson, Simon Troeth, told the Independent the Opposition was committed to bringing the air race to Geelong if the coalition won this

year’s state election. “We think it will be a very exciting opportunity for Geelong,” he said. “It will create jobs and be another great major event move to Victoria.” Mr Troeth said the Opposition had been in talks with Red Bull Air Race organisers about securing the event to run over Corio Bay. Mr Merlino’s attack on the bid in parliament was “very unfortunate”, Mr Troeth said. “It showed Labor is more interested in playing politics than promoting major events in Victoria. “This isn’t one or the other because the opposition is supportive of bringing other major events like the World Cup to Geelong as well.”

Bridge opening A PEDESTRIAN bridge is set to open at Barwon Heads in the next few days, according to Vicroads. A spokesperson estimated the structure would be ready for walkers and cyclists in around three days as work proceeded on a controversial State Government plan to demolish and replace the iconic Barwon Heads Bridge.

Truck bans

Water talk EPA VICTORIA has announced a public conference on a proposed sewage treatment plant for Corio after residents raised concerns about the project in last week’s Independent. EPA’s Gavan Mathieson said anyone wanting to attend the “independently chaired” conference should register by emailing community.engagement@epa.vic.gov.au.

Airport academy STATE Government should build its proposed Victorian aviation training academy at Avalon Airport, according to an organisation representing the region’s councils. G21 has launched an online petition asking Premier John Brumby and ministers to site the facility at Avalon rather than Melbourne’s Tullamarine.

Cyclist arrest POLICE have charged a man over an assault that left a cyclist sprawled on Torquay Road with facial injuries. Police said a 45-year-old Grovedale man turned him in over the alleged assault in Grovedale after the cyclist had given his assailant the finger as he drove past.

Uni agreement IMPROVING the efficiency of car engines more than seven per cent will be among a range of collaborative research projects in a new partnership between Geelong and Ballarat researchers. Deakin and Ballarat universities announced they had signed a heads of agreement to share facilities and exchange staff working on the projects.

Aged promise A COALITION state government would hand over at least two hectares of North Geelong land for an aged care facility and open space, according to shadow minister for ageing David Davis. Mr Davis said the land would come from the Barton Street campus of the former Western Heights Senior College, with part of the site also dedicated to open space if the coalition won November’s state election.

BY ALEX DE VOS SURFERS and environmentalists fear Surf Coast Shire’s proposed Bells Beach master plan will turn the iconic reserve into a “theme park”. They believe the plan will lead to a surge in tourism and commercial traffic in the reserve, squeezing out recreational surfers and putting unsustainable pressure on the Bells environment. Surfers Appreciating the Natural Environment’s Graeme Stockton said

the shire’s redevelopment options posed a significant threat to Bells. He slammed council’s plan to build an “overflow car park” to cater for growing tourism traffic such as buses. “We think they’re trying to turn it into a theme park, which is how we interpret the plan,” Mr Stockton said. Mr Stockton urged council to dump the plan or risk “environmental consequences”. Bells Beach advisory committee

member Maurice Cole said surfers who were aware of the plan were united in opposition. “I can’t find anyone who thinks it’s good,” he said. “We don’t want Hollywoodisation. We don’t want to make it any bigger.” Mr Cole called on the shire to go back to the drawing board. “It was a flawed process (to develop the plan) because we weren’t allowed to discuss all the issues such as traffic

and the management of the Rip Curl Pro,” Mr Cole said. Development of the new Bells Beach master plan follows a failed attempt in 2004. Under the new plan the shire proposes widespread changes to parking, infrastructure and viewing. Council also plans to charge tourism operators for using the reserve. The plan will be on display until June 30.

Athlete search A TALENT search for Australia’s next Paralympians will arrive in Geelong on Sunday, according to organisers. Australian Paralympic Committee has invited disabled athletes from across the region to vie for places in the next national team from 10am to 1pm Sunday at Newtown’s Geelong College.

Water wonder A NEW aquatic centre is to open at Waurn Ponds in late August after installation of two theme park-style waterslides, according to Geelong’s mayor. John Mitchell said workers would begin moving gym equipment into Leisurelink in the next month as worked continued on the $50 million project. 486639-JF24-10

BY KIM WATERS THE FAILURE of Armstrong Creekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first subdivision to deliver affordable housing has highlighted bargains just up the road in Geelong, according to real estate agents. They trotted out a series of relatively new homes around 40 per cent, or $200,000, cheaper than the entry price for Armstrong Creek. The Independent revealed last week that an absence of competition among developers and failed attempts to tap into Federal Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s affordable housing fund would leave the first residents paying around $500,000 for a house and land. Buxton Hightonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jarrod Leonard said Armstrong Creek had shone the affordability spotlight on Belmont, Grovedale and Marshall. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone for a certain boutique option, which will work better for second and third-home buyers, but areas like Marshall and Belmont offer established homes close to schools, shops and public transport at affordable prices,â&#x20AC;? Mr Leonard said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new subdivision will also need time to settle in and we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really be seeing the benefits for buyers until maybe 15 to 20 years down the track. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Areas like Grovedale and Waurn Ponds are family-friendly, offer plenty of trees and parks and have very affordable homes.â&#x20AC;? Mr Leonard predicted the capital growth of homes in Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s existing suburbs would â&#x20AC;&#x153;far outweighâ&#x20AC;? Armstrong Creek. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Belmont, Grovedale and Marshal are much more appealing,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We see more and more people buying land in new subdivisions with the view to build and then end up selling because of difficulties and hassles associated with building. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of buyers these days arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in a financial position to be able to do that and would prefer an established home at a more-affordable price.â&#x20AC;? North Geelong Real Estateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Joe Grgic expected the â&#x20AC;&#x153;stress of demandâ&#x20AC;? to send the cost of buying into Armstrong Creek beyond $500,000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are a lot of first-home buyers who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford that,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The majority are looking for a home at $300,000 or below and there are great houses in established parts of Geelong for around that price.â&#x20AC;?

Ink painted: Janne Kearney with some of her tattoo-inspired paintings. Picture: Tommy Ritchie

Tatts inspiration BY ALEX DE VOS AFTER painting a dozen tattooed people, Janne Kearney has discovered there is more to the ink than meets the eye. “There are lots of reasons why people get tattoos and often they are very private and personal reasons,” the Geelong West artist said. “People get them at different stages of their life; to mark an event or help them through trauma. “Every tattoo tells a story.” Initially drawn to the artistic side of tattoos, Ms Kearney’s collection of paintings has also helped break a longheld stereotype that holders are drunken sailors, muscle-bound bikies or career criminals. “I always wondered why people would display such permanent art,” she said.

(per piece)

popular form of body art was altered during a discussion with a tattooist after a mastectomy, which robbed the woman of her nipple. “One of the things that bothered her the most was losing her nipple,” Ms Kearney said. “She was talking to someone and they said ‘We can beautify that’, so they replaced the nipple with a cherry blossom and the rest of the tattoo is of a dragon fly, which symbolises the illusion of beauty.” Ms Kearney hoped her painting would raise awareness about the potentially life-threatening disease. “I’ve lost two very good friends to breast cancer and I really wanted to support women,” she said. The Cancer Council Victoria Arts Awards exhibition opens July 11 in Melbourne.

“Often they are introverted and not people you would expect to have a tattoo.” A piece from her tattoo art collection, called Hope, Strength and Beauty, has been selected for exhibition at the internationally-acclaimed Cancer Council Victoria Arts Awards. Ms Kearney said the “virtually” life size adaptation was her favourite painting in the series. The piece portrays a breast cancer survivor with her tattoo of a cherry blossom and a dragon fly. “There’s actually a funny story behind it,” she said. “The lady was at a folk music festival and she entered a raffle and ended up winning second prize, which was a voucher for a tattoo. “She wasn’t into tattoos at all.” Ms Kearney’s perspective on the

BY ANDREW MATHIESON A PRIME slice of real estate serving as a student car park could become a battleground for rival development proposals. Proponents of a Geelong convention centre have been locking horns with Deakin University over development of the waterfront site at the corner of Western Beach Road and Gheringhap Street. But Deakin chief operating officer Graeme Dennehy indicated the land was not for sale. “The Deakin waterfront car park is an integral component of the university’s master plan for the future development of the Geelong waterfront campus,” he said. “(It) currently provides an essential parking facility for our staff and students.” The proposed centre would accommodate 1200 visiting delegates. Ed Coppe, the chairperson of regional councils alliance group G21, said the site was earmarked as a preferred option for a centre to host conferences and exhibitions. The former Geelong mayor told the Independent earlier this month that building a convention centre close to the bay remained a “priority project”. “For a convention centre to work, it needs to be near shopping, preferably near the water, and it ought to be an iconic building – not just a boring box but something that has a bit of a wowfactor about it,” he said. “When you think about all those components, that Western Wedge area around Deakin University would be a good place for it.”

BY KIM WATERS RESIDENTS have given up hope of saving a historic Geelong West church from the “wealth and power” of budget supermarket chain ALDI, according to a National Trust spokesperson. Geelong West National Trust’s Jennifer Banton said ALDI had taken its plans to “destroy” and replace St Johns Anglican Church and vicarage straight to state Planning Minister Justin Madden for approval. “This developer has just ignored the local council process and we have to ask why they deserve special treatment,” Ms Banton said. Council shot down plans for the ALDI store on the corner of Shannon Avenue and Albert Street last month, citing fears of “traffic problems in the area”. But council lost control of the project and an advisory committee to Mr Madden heard submissions on the ALDI plan last week. Ms Banton said ALDI was using Mr Madden to “push through” the project despite widespread community opposition. “Why is a ministerial planning panel needed for a development that both council and the community don’t want?” Ms Banton said ALDI’s application process reflected a “disturbing political trend” in influential companies bypassing local government. “ALDI is a big company that can afford to pay consultants and barristers,” she said. “The residents and councillors opposing

Steamrolled: Jennifer Banton outside St Johns Anglican Church. Picture: Tommy Ritchie: 48784 this have been locked out of the process because they don’t have the resources to fight it. “There are an increasing number of these matters called in by Mr Madden and the panels are making political decisions rather than implementing good planning processes.” Ms Banton briefed last week’s panel on behalf of Geelong West National Trust but was “not hopeful” of a positive outcome. She wanted Mr Madden to delay his decision until council had implemented a proposed heritage planning overlay for Geelong West, which would protect historic buildings. Mr Banton said ALDI should demonstrate whether it could redevelop the site while retaining its heritage values. “ALDI need to respect advice from

experts who say the church building is of historical significance.” Councillor Jan Farrell said at a council meeting last month she had “no faith” Mr Madden’s advisory committee would make the right decision on the ALDI application. “We cannot destroy heritage buildings for the sake of development, especially with the amount of work gone into protecting the area.” Cr Farrell said the proposal was “contrary” to council’s Ashby precinct heritage review and that ALDI had taken its application to Mr Madden in a “seemingly devious manner”. ALDI had not returned the Independent’s calls for comment before the paper went to press.

SCARF FESTIVAL NOW ON! THE 2010 REFLECTIONS SCARF FESTIVAL ONE OF THE BIGGEST CRAFT EVENTS OF THE YEAR STARTS TODAY AT THE NATIONAL WOOL MUSEUM The Festival is comprised of two main parts. The first is an eclectic exhibition of original handcrafted scarves, submitted by talented and enthusiastic members of the public. About 250 scarves from all over Australia and overseas have been received this year, including scarves from as far afield as India and New Zealand. All scarves will be on display in the exhibition and most are available for purchase. There’s also an extensive program of workshops and events in four locations across Geelong and Melbourne, offering something crafty for all abilities and all ages. Crocheting, felting, handspinning, French knitting and sewing – all the traditional crafts are covered, as well as some not so traditional such as decorative ropework, three-dimensional shibori and felting onto silk. In response to feedback from last year's Scarf Festival, adult workshops are being offered on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays. In addition, there are children’s craft workshops being presented almost every day during the June-July School Holidays.

MUSEUM DELIVERS RARE GIFT TO GEELONG The National Wool Museum is providing a peek behind the doors of one of Melbourne’s rare artistic jewels in the exhibition Christmas Creations for Mr Johnston - by Geelong Artisans. The exhibition features the work of more than 200 Geelong region artists and craftspeople who provided the exquisite hand-made decorations for the popular 2009 Christmas exhibition at Melbourne’s prestigious Johnston Collection. The Johnston Collection is based at Fairhall, the residence of the late antique dealer and collector William Johnston (1911-1986). The astonishing array of Georgian, Regency and Louis XV fine and decorative arts and antiquities, coupled with the Museum’s strict limits on visitor numbers, makes the Johnston Collection one of the most highly sought-after museums and galleries in Melbourne.

The 2010 Scarf Festival runs until Sunday 25 July. The full festival program can be viewed online or downloaded from www.nwm.vic.gov.au. For further information or to request a program to be sent to you, please telephone the Museum on 5272 4701.

More than 200 artists from nine Geelong organisations provided the decorations for last year’s annual Christmas at the Johnston Collection exhibition. For the many people who missed out on seeing it in Melbourne, this exhibition provides an opportunity to see the decorations and celebrate our local artists’ fine work.

Don’t miss out on this fantastic craft event – book now!

Now on show until Sunday 29 August. Entry costs apply.

State asked to close rail line

Net loss: Peter Kavanagh on Geelong’s waterfront this week. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 48613

STATE Government should officially close a disused rail line in Geelong to remove a public safety hazard while opening up extra space for community organisation, parliament has heard. Member for Geelong Ian Trezise called on the Public Transport Minister to declare the Fyansford line closed to allow for alternative uses of land in the

city. Mr Trezise wanted a section of line dividing Bell Park Sports Club and under-construction Western Heights Secondary College removed “as quickly as possible”. The Independent reported last month that Geelong councillor Eddie Kontelj wanted the reserve turned into a path for pedestrians and cyclists.

BY ANDREW MATHIESON A PUSH for temporary bans on commercial fishing in Corio Bay has reached state parliament. DLP Member for Western Victoria Peter Kavanagh has raised the temporary bans in parliament’s upper house in a bid to help recovery of the bay’s fish stocks. Recreational anglers are seeking the bans on net fishing, which they believe is responsible for a disastrous decline in a number of species usually common in the bay. Mr Kavanagh said he backed the bans. “They (recreational anglers) presented a pretty good case (we) are in danger of fishing out

Corio Bay. They have said that in recent years fish numbers have definitely dropped by 90 per cent or more,” he said. “I’m not trying to eliminate commercial fishing – I hate the idea of wiping out an industry that is viable, but what we need to do is make it sustainable.” “If that involves telling people they can’t commercially fish for a year or two or only limit their catch and pay them compensation, I think that would be good.” Mr Kavanagh issued an adjournment matter last week in parliament to introduce “measures to make fishing more sustainable”. The bans could force profes-

sional fisherman to instead use hooks and lines to catch fish. Mr Kavanagh said recreational anglers also accused commercial operators of significant waste, with about 30 per cent of their catch left to die without reaching market. Fishing columnist and tackle store operator Brian Long backed a moratorium on commercial netting. Mr Long said netting was also destroying seagrass bed habitat for fish in Corio Bay. “They use these scrappingtype nets that are weighted completely along the bottom, so as they drag along the bottom all these sea grass is ripped up,” Mr Long said.

He believed line fishing was a better option for commercial fishing in the bay. Geelong councillor and state Liberal candidate Andrew Katos, whose family runs a successful commercial fishing business, said he would be concerned about changes to commercial fishing licences. Cr Katos said operators would struggle to meet demand under the proposed bans. “You have got real concerns there because they make their livelihoods and there is also that supply (issue),” he said. “People will be demanding fresh fish, so you need to get it to market.”

Chicken farm faces buy-out BY ANDREW MATHIESON A CHICKEN farmer blocking residential development at Armstrong Creek within a 1000metre radius of his property will eventually receive a buy-out offer, according to a developer. Mark Casey, whose company owns more than 70 per cent of the urban growth area’s east precinct, said a buy-out was inevitable so developers could have the farm’s buffer zone removed. “That will happen in the next five to 10 years,” Mr Casey said. “Someone will come along and do a deal with the chicken farmer. He’ll close his business down and we’ll turn that area into houses. “That’s just a given.” The Independent revealed last week that State Government had endorsed an independent panel’s recommendation to apply the buffer zone preventing residential building around the Balog family farm. Owner Adrian Balog had feared that without the buffer he would have faced complaints

Last week: Adrian Balog celebrates his buffer win. about odours, noise and dust after new residents moved in nearby. He expected the complaint would have eventually forced him out of business, leaving him bankrupt after investing almost $5 million in the farm. Mr Casey said he had already rejected a $7 million price tag for the Balog farm. Developers had yet to buy out most of the land close to the property, he said. “General market forces once the land gets rezoned will eventually make it financially viable for

Stop Looking h Tender loving aged care h Safe and secure homes with ageing in place h Compassionate family owned company

developers,” Mr Casey said. “They’ll make more money out of the land than running chickens.” Mr Casey said Armstrong Creek was earmarked for development since 1984, which was before the Balog family bought their land. “Everyone knew development would eventually happen,” Mr Casey said. He revealed he had bought out another chicken farmer to develop his Warralily estate. “He probably got a superior price to maybe any other farmer because he had an ongoing concern and it was important to us that he was no longer in operation to be able to make Warralily a reality.” Mr Casey said latest technology could reduce the impact of chicken farms on neighbours so buffer zones could be reduced to “closer to 500 metres”. The State Government endorsed an independent panel recommendation this month that called for a 1000-metre buffer from residential development.

You beauty! Trio in national awards TWO STUDENTS and a teacher from Geelong’s The Gordon have won national awards for hair and beauty. The trio received their prizes last week at an annual Hair and Beauty Industry Association Awards in Melbourne. Shelley Platt won stage one

apprentice of the year for hairdressing, Sally Aganetti earned best diploma for a specialised make-up student and Kristen Grasso was named educator of the year in hairdressing. Each of the trio won their awards after undergoing an entry process involving a written sub-

missions and a panel interview about the skill, knowledge and achievements within their fields. The Gordon said the awards demonstrated that Geelong was developing a “first-rate reputation in the hair and beauty industry as the place to study”.

WHAT’S THAT NOISE?

Safety has the highest priority within Shell. Refinery sirens are a vital way of ensuring our on-site personnel respond quickly and safely to an incident.

EVERYTHING REDUCED

Geelong Refinery has three types of sirens: ■

Minor – a single, constant siren that lasts for one minute. It signals to employees an incident has occurred that affects one part of the refinery;

Major – an alternating (up and down) siren that last for one minute. It signals to employees an incident has occurred that may affect another part of the refinery; and

All clear – a single, constant siren that lasts for 15 seconds.

The sirens are tested at 9am every Tuesday. A siren heard at any other time means an incident has occurred on-site that requires attention by refinery personnel.

ND SECOND HA FURNITURE

The community does not need to take action when a siren sounds. However, if you hear a siren and would like more information, you can call Shell’s Issues and Emergencies hotline. In the unlikely event the community needs to take action or be aware of any potential disruptions such as a road closure, this is managed by the emergency services which will make an announcement via 774 ABC Radio.

GREAT SAVINGS 482732-KC24-10

BLINDNESS has robbed Jessica Gallagher’s failing eyesight but there’s certainly nothing wrong with her vision. After capturing a bronze at the winter Paralympics skiing flat out down the face of a ski slope, anticipation of another medal at the 2012 summer games either throwing a javelin or jumping into a sand pit are quietly hidden behind Jessica’s deep blue eyes. It’s not entirely surprising she can adapt from the chill to turning up the heat on her next competition. Just months after being the first Australian woman to win a winter Paralympian medal, the 24year-old was straight back training beside an athletic track with an eye on the next two years. The skiing novice, used to overlooking Highton’s green hills from home, remembers copping a frosty reception from hardened North Americans and Europeans on the medal dais. “They weren’t very happy about when I won a medal,” she chuckles. “You know, the Aussie girl from the summer country who hasn’t been skiing very long.” Jessica has contracted a rare genetic mutation that has sent her genes awry. The degenerative condition of conedystrophia has been with her since birth but wasn’t first diagnosed until she was 17. “I’d always done well at school, so there was no reason to think I would have visual problems,” Jessica says. “I’d seen quite a few optometrists during my teens and none of them picked it up. “Then when I started Year 12 I started getting massive migraines and was struggling a lot from pure eye strain.” A doctor eventually found she had colour-contrast issues. Tests later determined she was legally blind. To put it in perspective, Jessica’s quality of sight has dropped from 12 per cent to eight over the past seven years. Doctors expect it to decline further. When she looks straight ahead, her peripheral vision is at its best allowing her to recognise outlines and shapes rather than detail. When she could see clearly representing Victoria in under-16s basketball and netball in both and serving as an emergency for Australia in netball was just the start of her competitive achievements. “Since my eyesight deteriorated, it has become harder and harder to shoot goals and catch passes because of the speed of the game,” Jessica explains. While there is still a glimmer in the eye, playing netball with friends is still an option. Jessica was so good despite being legally blind back in 2007 that she still took out Leopold’s Agrade best and fairest – even after missing six of the team’s 18 matches due to alpine skiing commitments. “It sounds funny but I have excellent hand/eye coordination even though there is a fair bit of eyesight missing,” Jessica reckons. “I can make up for it in other areas like my athleticism and even though I can’t see the ring fully I’m still able to score quite accurately.” Eyesight was a problem at the 2008 Paralympics where tests revealed Jessica’s right eye was 0.1 degrees from legally blind. The hard work was all for nothing, she ponders. “It was very bittersweet,” Jessica regrets. “I would say I would give all my Paralympics up in a second if someone was able to give me my sight back.” These days Jessica’s biggest concern is changing body position from lunging forward when skiing to keeping upright in her pet summer events javelin and long jump. Jessica last year completed a masters degree in osteopathy after several injuries drew her toward the treatment. Losing her sight also killed off a prospective career in the law. “I didn’t want to be spending my life with eye strain, migraines and headaches from having to read case studies, books and computers,” she says. “Osteopathy seemed the perfect fit because your hands do the work, not your eyes.” Magnifying words is a daily battle as Jessica struggles to read signs in public. She also surrendered driving with her L-plates. But she hasn’t been the best passenger, either. “I got into the wrong car once at a service station,” Jessica giggles. “Someone had moved the car and another car pulled up, so I jumped in the back, looked around and saw a different family.”

Our tax system needs to change. The first step is to make it simpler and fairer for everyone. We all know that we live in a time of rapid change. We see it happening all around us. Our population is ageing. New challenges arise almost every day. So it’s important for us to have a tax system that is able to meet those challenges. By making our tax system simpler and fairer for individuals and business, the proposed tax reforms are an important first step towards making our economy stronger and preparing us for the years ahead. Increasing our super By 2050, one in four Australians will be over 65. We need to plan for that and make sure everyone has enough super for a comfortable retirement. That’s why raising the superannuation guarantee and contributing more to super is so important.

Something in the air HAVE we asked why Geelong has the highest number of dementia sufferers in Victoria (Independent, May 21)? Have we asked whether the reason could be heavy industry emitting pollution? Have we asked whether the addition of chemicals, namely, chlorine, ammonia and fluoride, to our water supply could add to the problem? Has there been any testing of residents? Ask our decision-makers before the next election and demand answers. Pricilla Wright Newtown

Better tax on savings Under the current system, interest income is taxed higher than many other forms of savings. To make it fairer, there will be a tax cut on bank and other interest income. This will reward Australians who put money away for their future. Making tax simpler Tax will be made simpler for individuals by introducing standard deductions, and for business by simplifying depreciation rules. Cutting tax for small business Small business is one of our biggest employers. So anything that makes it easier for small business to grow and do business is good for all of us.

Group of bad things

Giving small business companies an early tax cut is a good start. And instant write-off of assets up to $5,000 and simplified depreciation for all small business will improve their cash flow and cut down on paperwork. A fairer share of our resources wealth Before the last mining boom, the Australian people received $1 in every $3 of mining profits through royalties and resource charges. By the end of that boom, our share had fallen to just $1 in every $7. Changing the way we tax mining profits will ensure everyone shares in the benefits of our natural resources. The proposed reforms will affect all of us, so it’s important that you know what’s on the table.

GEOTHERMAL operations certainly aren’t safe or “clean and green”, as Greenearth Energy claimed in a local newspaper this month. On the contrary, the hazards and risks of geothermal operations are highlighted in Geothermal Energy Resources Act 2005 and Geothermal Energy Resources Regulations 2006. Most alarmingly, part of the act is devoted to risks and hazards to people and the environment near geothermal operations. Further, councils and emergency services must be involved in emergency planning for these hazards, which “could detrimentally affect the health or safety of people in the area surrounding the operation”. The Labor State Government seems bent on ignoring the risks of geothermal operations, which are well-documented worldwide and highlighted by our own media. Even Greenearth Energy recently admitted geothermal developments have contaminated aquifers (Independent, April 15). Premier John Brumby and Energy and Resources Minister Peter Batchelor have a moral obligation to protect the lives of all Victorians yet it seems with the Geelong geothermal development that residents’ lives are considered expendable. The act states its objectives and principles are “to promote geothermal energy extraction for the benefit of all Victorians.” How can this industry be “clean and green” and beneficial to all Victorians given the associated hazards outlined in the Act and regulations? All Geelong residents must contact their MPs to say no to geothermal industry in populated areas. Ivor Briggs Gherang

IT WOULD be remiss of me not to respond to a letter in the June 4 Independent about the proposed dog ban at Point Lonsdale, in particular the letter’s reference to a poster. The man in the poster photo is my son, Lachlan Jones, a gold medal paralympian and a world champion who I coached, among many others, for 15 years. Lachlan is visually impaired and has cerebral palsy. In answer to the letter, Lachlan was on the dog beach with his companion dog on a leash. It appears a group of elitist sycophants has its abilities confused with its ambition. This group continually makes claims of majority support based on its commandant’s rubbery figures, which at best appear unsubstantiated. The group has an agenda far beyond it capabilities and the encouraging support of the isolated, local propaganda machine. While the group’s inept claim for the Rhineland, oops, I mean Stockland, continues to stumble and lose speed and momentum, it now wishes to reclaim half of Point Lonsdale to refill its coffers with extra rates. It is time to remove this rabble – a vestige and possibly last remaining folly of the Jeff Kennett era – once and for all. The community deserves a unifying voice, not self-appointed pressure groups. Remember the quote from 1933: Bad things happen when the good do nothing. Greg Jones Point Lonsdale

letters Chief overboard VICTORIAN Police Chief Commissioner Simon Overland’s recent visit to Geelong was a slap in the face for the community and, more importantly, Geelong Nightlife Association’s Darren Holroyd who works so hard liaising with the nightlife precinct and police. Mr Overland showed contempt for Geelong and its citizens. Of course, he answers to Premier John Brumby. No doubt Mr Overland is safe in the knowledge Mr Brumby will bail him out again after his bungling. If Mr Overland is “bigger than that”, as he stated, then he should accept the fact there is enormous public interest in what he does. After all, the taxpayers pay him. Wilma Bolitho Geelong

The ignored sport SINCE I arrived at Barwon Rowing Club as a coxswain in year seven I’ve come through the ranks of schoolgirl rowing, toyed with the idea of elite competition, coached, assisted officials, provided security, made sandwiches, served beer and co-edited the club’s newsletter – and they’re just the roles I can remember. When I first put my hand up to cox my school’s senior rowing crew, I never thought I would end up doing all the things I’ve done. I thought I was only going to compete for my school. Instead, I found myself in the supportive embrace of grass-roots sport. It is a commonly held but damaging myth that rowing is a sport for the rich. It gives the false preconception that rowers and rowing clubs are cashed up. It seeks to remove us from being a community sport and damages our chances of obtaining funding. In fact, we are a community club just like any other and have a diverse membership with members from all walks of life. I consider myself privileged to row with people of a mixed social background, education and age. We are a club not because we exclude people but because we include them. It is hard to include people without the support allocated to other sports clubs in the community. Why does the club have so much trouble attracting funding from organisations that claim to support sport at the grass-roots level? Bethany Keats Newtown

A gutful of low-carb beer myth for men DURING Men’s Health Week men are encouraged to think about shedding extra weight. For beer drinkers, switching to a low-carbohydrate option may seem like an easy way to banish the belly but these products aren’t the healthy option many may think. The term ‘low-carb’ on the label may mislead drinkers into thinking these varieties keep the kilos off. Most people don’t realise that carb levels are relatively low in beer to begin with. The troublesome ingredient is alcohol. In an average low-carb beer, 12 per cent of calories come from carbohydrates, three per cent from protein and a whopping 85 per cent from alcohol. Alcohol is converted into energy because the body can’t store it. If that energy isn’t burned off through exercise, it

United behind rowers BARWON Rowing Club is urgently seeking funds to rebuild its shed on the Barwon River. United Way Geelong is a major fundraiser for 70 local health and human care agencies throughout the region, assisting children, youths, the aged, families in crisis and people with disabilities. A significant part of our fundraising program is Alcoa Australian Corporate Head of the River regatta, which has raised in excess of $900,000 since it commenced and will raise more than $1 million for our community in 2010. The event was developed in partnership with Barwon Rowing Club, which continues to provide support. As background, the event involves teaching and coaching crews of varying standards, many of which are experiencing rowing for the first time, over a four-week period. The event culminates in the Corporate Head of River. In 2009 51 crews participated, with over 2000 people attending the final race day. Barwon Rowing Club provides the use of its

fastest-growing group switching to low-carb beer. A recent VicHealth survey revealed that half the population thought low-carb beers weren’t as fattening, while 40 per cent thought they were healthier and contained less sugar. Worryingly, 20 per cent believed low-carb beer contained less alcohol than regular beer. With so many myths associated with these drinks, there is a danger that beer lovers may think they can drink more of them more often without health consequences. The truth is, if you’re watching your waistline it’s best to switch to a low-alcohol brew or just take a break from booze instead. Todd Harper VicHealth chief executive officer

rooms, equipment, coaches, on-water support and volunteers for a variety of support activities. The club’s major commitment in the event makes a real difference to our community. As chair of the committee for this event, I am pleased to support a drive to further develop the facilities by rebuilding the club’s shed because the community will experience ongoing benefits. Andrew Cleary Manifold Heights

Club supports disabled I HAVE been a member of Barwon Rowing Club for nearly five years. I am legally blind and have found the club to be very inclusive and accommodating. In 2004 the club invited people with vision impairment to try rowing. This was an excellent initiative on the club’s part. The members provided me with an initial orientation of the clubhouse as well as all the equipment. I received the required coaching, which allowed me

to fully participate in the club’s on-water activities. I have rowed with various crews in a range of boats. More recently the club’s coaches have assisted me to row in a single scull. With a higher level of funding, Barwon Rowing Club would be able to attract more blind or visionimpaired people as well as those with other disabilities. A new, fully-accessible clubhouse would be able to accommodate many more individuals with a diverse range of abilities and create an even-moreinclusive environment. Richard Kakol North Geelong

Ignorance futile WE ARE pleased parts of the Tuvalu island chain remain above water (Letters, June 11). However, the study regarding their extent of inundation in no way casts doubt on data on sea level rise or increasing ocean temperatures and acidity. Physical processes relating to erosion and sediment transfer mean the islands have not disappeared and in some cases have grown. The flexible crust of our planet bends, stretches, rises and falls, erodes and builds up again. The phenomenon of isostasy, in which landmasses can move up and down according to the weight they impose on the underlying flexible mantle, may also be involved in areas such as the Himalayas. As ice sheets melt or mountains erode the land rises slightly, offsetting some of the sea level rise. Claims that “the CSIRO is irresponsible in running a scare campaign” over sea level rise are ridiculous and characteristic of climate change deniers’ knee-jerk responses. Such scientifically immature comments illustrate a futile attempt to ignore the reality of this unique challenge to society. We have to change our energy demand and energy sources. Forward, positive thinkers see this as an opportunity to move away from a dirty, polluted fossilfuelled world. We owe it to future generations of all life on our fragile planet.

CLEARANCE OPEN 7 DAYS Money3 Geelong’s Kathy Miller.

Fast money made easy with Money3 truggling with money is tough for anyone, especially a single mother supporting a teenage daughter. Single mum Sarah was finding it challenging to make ends meet. She also needed a new computer for her daughter’s study. Sarah felt she was hitting a brick wall every time she tried to get financial help, until she met MONEY3. Sarah was approved instantly for a loan of $2000. Geelong branch manager Kathy Miller says Sarah’s story is just one of the bonuses of being part of a company “that truly helps people”. “We often have people in tears of joy because they are just so relieved that we can help them”. The whole team agrees MONEY3 really has helped a lot of people get back on their feet. Kathy says MONEY3’s mission is “advancing people’s lives”. “Every day we see the result. Whether a customer has borrowed $50 for petrol to get to a job interview or $10,000 to buy a new car, MONEY3 lives by its mission.” Last year MONEY3 advanced over $32 million in about 40,000 transactions. This June MONEY3 celebrates 10 years of providing credit to people who may not have access to traditional forms of credit or who need it faster than banks can provide.

Three days of solstice theatre BY ALEX DE VOS THIS yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Winter Solstice Festival might lack the traditional pagan rituals from days of yore but will make up for it with plenty of mulled wine to take the edge off the bone-aching winter chill. Theatre 3Triple2 president Justyn Rowe said the Drysdale event, which leads up to the shortest day of the year in the Southern Hemisphere, would also feature two plays, roving musicians, fire pits and colourful decorations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an opportunity to bring meaning to the weekend for people who are cold and stuck inside the house,â&#x20AC;? the veteran producer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The event will have a real festival atmosphere â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be wandering musicians entertaining people before the plays, mulled wine and some great. hard-hitting plays.â&#x20AC;? The three-day solstice celebration begins with a performance of the oneact play Boxing Day. Written by Bruce Olive and directed by Rowe, the dark comedy would take audiences on an emotional roller coaster ride. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are some poignant moments and also great big belly laugh moments,â&#x20AC;? Rowe explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about an average suburban lifestyle that will make you question whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening behind the scenes of your next door neighbourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house.â&#x20AC;? The event continues with The Proposal, a contemporary comedy in

which love prevails despite every obstacle. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about an extraordinary proposal between two extraordinary people,â&#x20AC;? Rowe said. He told the Independent he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to unveil this seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s productions at Drysdaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Potato Shed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People will be blown away by the quality of local performers,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have immense respect for community theatre â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we manage to pull off some really good quality work with limited resources. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Community theatre has the knack of bringing out some amazing talents and discovering some amazing playwrights.â&#x20AC;? Rowe urged budding actors and playwrights interested in joining a community theatre group to contact Theatre 3Triple2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our theatre company is based around the idea of fostering young and immerging talent right across performing arts,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you have a great idea or project weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re interested in hearing from you.â&#x20AC;? The event starts 8pm this Friday and continues until 8pm Saturday before a matinee curtain-closer 2pm Sunday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Come and see two contrasting plays with dark threads, drink mulled wine, enjoy live foyer entertainment and celebrate a new season with us,â&#x20AC;? Rowe said. He urged anyone seeking more information about Theatre 3Triple2 to visit www.3triple2.org.

ow we are nearly half way through 2010, it’s worth remembering whether you’ve made a new year’s resolution to get healthier and lose weight. Commitments to new-year resolutions usually wane after the first month and only 20 per cent of people maintain them past Valentine’s Day. Trying to change too much at once is usually the reason for this drop-off rate. Working with a personal food coach is one of the most successful and easiest ways to lose weight while at the same time improving your self-confidence and health. Often we feel we are eating healthily but by eating too much healthy food we will not see weightloss results. Many other factors are involved, such as getting the right balance, portion control, choosing from all the food groups and addressing long-held self-sabotaging habits. Many foods these days have far more energy than the foods from 20 years ago. We also have a lot more choice because 80 per cent of products on supermarket shelves were unavailable 20 years ago. Eating out for breakfast, snacks and meals has become a large part of our culture. This is where the education of a personal food coach is invaluable. The coaches at The WEIGHT Works are welleducated in this field personally and professionally to teach clients how to eat three balanced meals and

How To Get Real (and lasting) Weight Loss and Fitness Results… As Quickly As Possible, With 100% Certainty You want to get rid of the fat, lose the weight and have a great body so you look and feel great. Like most, you’ve probably tried some things and they haven’t worked. WHY? Because you are being lied to. The weight loss industry doesn’t care about you—they care about profits. So they tell you what you want to hear. That it’s “fast and easy if you just eat our food, take our pill, use our new fangled gizmo, join our club.” BULL! Like everything worthwhile in life, health and fitness results take effort. And the “secret” solutions don’t work. You know that already though. (But are you willing to admit it?) If you want real results, as quickly as possible, with 100% certainty, then there is only ONE solution that works every time: personal training with a certified expert who designs a program specifically for you… and then holds you ACCOUNTABLE to following the program. If you really want what you say you want, then you’re ready for the real solution. Here’s your chance to get more details and try out the only real solution, with ZERO cost or obligation, if you respond immediately:

Spring into winter fitness regime BY DALE RINGIN, PEAK FITNESS CHALLENGE rom an exercise point of view, winter should be regarded as a time of opportunity. This is because for most people winter is a time of year when we put on weight due to a change in eating and exercise habits. But when spring arrives in a little under three months, do you want to be thinking about how to get rid of those extra kilograms and centimetres? Action now in the form of a 12week action plan is essential to maintain your well-being over the winter period.

Centacare’s headquarters in Geelong’s McKillop Street.

Centacare staff helping families entacare is in the business of supporting families and strengthening relationships. Families often do it tough these days with high housing costs and household expenses rising. Australians are said to work the longest hours in the developed world yet more than half of the country’s workers say they are struggling to get by. Also, depression and obesity are at epidemic levels. Under this sort of pressure, stress levels rise and relationships are often strained, so families need support. Centacare is a community-based, federally-funded, professional agency offering a range of support counselling and dispute resolution services for couples and families. Based in central Geelong, in the city’s north and some rural locations, Centacare also offers family dispute services, known as family mediation services, and supports couples post-separation to prepare parenting plans in the best interest of their children. Centacare can support families facing a broad range of challenges including stress, the painful process of separation and divorce, single parenthood and managing step or blended-family relationships. Centacare also offers an extensive range of group work and seminar opportunities. Centacare’s services are accessible and affordable. Families can self-refer or be referred from schools, GPs or other agencies. For more information such as a copy of a group work/seminar calendar, phone Centacare at 62 McKillop Street, Geelong, on 5221 7055 or at its Family Relationship Centre, 27-31 Myers Street, Geelong, on 5246 5600.

mixture of all three will: boost your immune system to fight off winter infections; increase your metabolism and help you to burn off excess kilojoules. Winter is also a great chance to: try a new form of exercise or class, such as yoga or Gymstick Muscle; sign up for personal training with a friend or family member so you are kept accountable, have an extra person for motivation and halve the costs; or talk to a dietitian about your diet and what adjustments you may need to make over winter to reduce your kilojoule count. Make your plan now so that in just 12 weeks you can launch into spring feeling fit and ready for your next exercise challenge.

FIT AND HEALTHY WITH SAM JONES

Getting fit can be as good as money in bank Peak Fitness Challenge can help clients get into shape for spring.

Helping hand to lose weight BY CARLEE NORTON any of us have our guilty pleasures. Mine was chocolate, cheese, cake, anything in reach after the birth of my baby girl. Eleven months later the result was a girl who ballooned to 98kg. Seeing this weight on the doctor’s scales brought me to tears. Something had to be done! I had Virginia’s business card from Encompassing You in my wallet for months, so I rang her two days after leaving the doctors surgery. I didn’t leave a message but within two minutes she rang me back. Every day I am so grateful that she rang me back. After an intense discussion in my first session, we decided I wasn’t going on a diet plan and that I wouldn’t count calories. I would begin healthy eating by swapping and changing my food choices – but that didn’t mean I couldn’t have a bit of the good stuff every now and then. I began to change my foods from chocolate to yoghurt, chips to salad, pastry to fruit. As for exercise, at the start Virginia was happy if I could just walk around the corner - now I’ve done a fun run and can cover four kilometres in 29 minutes! From the first day I visited Encompassing You in

Carlee before and after the help of Encompassing You. November until now in June I am 24kg lighter and enjoying life every minute of the day. I run, I play, I laugh. The secret to my success isn’t willpower, it’s instilling the power in you to say 'I can do this' and with the help of Virginia I did just that. Phone Encompassing You on 5241 2373.

E

right? Well, at this time of year we start to look at our budgets and are preparing for tax time, so I thought I would share with you a little known fact about how you can actually reduce the cost of your fitness membership. There are many advertisements on television around this time of year that promote the tax benefits of having private health insurance if you are a certain age or earn over a certain amount. But, aside from the obvious benefits and promoted tax benefits, there is one benefit that can help you get fit and maybe put a little cash back into your pocket. Many private health funds have recognised that the costs of preventative health far outweigh the costs of assisting someone when they are already ill, so they have taken action to offer rebates for membership fees, personal training and other services. If you want your body and your bank balance to be healthier, make sure you ask your private health insurer what fitness services they can provide rebates for and see how easy it is to get fit for you and your hip pocket. * Sam Jones is from Contours Geelong West and East Geelong (Newcomb)

Couple’s devotion to the Rover Wane’s Wheels GREG WANE

D

rysdale’s Paul and Kathleen Kenny are devoted Rover fans. In fact, they’re so keen on the marque that they own one each: a 1990 Rover 827 Sterling and a 1984 Rover Quintet. “I’ve always liked Rovers ever since I was a kid but when I got my licence I couldn’t afford one, so over the years I drove a succession of locally built cars,” Paul said. “The last one we owned, about seven or eight years ago, was a complete lemon. “I happened to come across a red Rover Sterling in Melbourne for sale at a good price in 2006. We bought it and really loved it, so much so that we ended up buying another one the following year, this time the Rover Quintet. It was for private sale in Geelong and had been well cared for.” Paul said both Rovers were in “garage condition”. “Many Rovers were owned by doctors and professional people and they really looked after them,” he observed. “The Rovers we chose have got the Honda drive-line, so everything under the floor is Honda.” The Sterling has a V6 Honda Legend engine and the Quintet boasts the same motor as the Accord. The Kenny’s first Rover, the Sterling, had been in storage for nine months, which caused some issues with the electrics. “The solder gets dry and brittle in most of the relays and after replacing 15 relays and fuses over a month or more that was

all sorted,” Paul said. The Kenny’s second car, the 1984 silver Quintet has all original features such as air-conditioning, power steering, tinted electric windows and wood laminates. “It’s a superb little car, very plush and well-appointed for its time – and very well built,” Paul said. “The doors shut with a satisfying thunk sound. There is a solidity about it that is usually lacking in vehicles of this era. “On the road, the performance is lively with a 1602cc Honda in-line four with a three-speed semi-automatic gearbox. The economy is fantastic. “The car is bullet proof – it never lets us down in any way.” Paul said the Quintet was still relatively common on Australian roads. The Quintet came to Australia when Leyland stopped making Minis in Australia. “Apparently they were left with an import licence to bring in 1000 cars a year in the early 1980s of their choice for four years, so they chose the Quintet,” Paul said. “Leyland was the owner of the Rover name at the time and they did a deal with Honda to import. The model lasted four years. “They were only built for Australia and I believe they were a very expensive car at the time.” The original price for the Quintet was $14,000 in 1984, which was a great deal more than a Commodore. Paul said he preferred to do all the servicing and maintenance on the cars himself. Parts were readily available locally as well as from New Zealand. “I do all the work and service them religiously,” Paul said. “The later model Sterling has a fourvolume workshop manual and each volume is as thick as a phone book. It’s a fairly complicated car but the older Quintet is a much simpler little beast about the only complicated thing is its

Reliable engineering: The Rover Sterling and the smaller Rover Quintet each share the advantage of a Honda drive-line. Pictures: Greg Wane 48749 electronic distributor system. “They’re not particularly expensive to maintain. The Quintet especially is nearly all Honda Accord, so I can get all the service bits I need and other parts from Honda dealers “The Sterling is all Honda Legend underneath, so there’s still plenty of them around.” Paul was happy to find parts available over the Tasman. “I came across a supplier in Christchurch who I have a good rapport with and he’s able to arrange for parts I need and send them over for me. “There were more Rovers imported into New Zealand than Australia, so there are a lot of them in New Zealand wrecking yards.” Bigger parts and panels could be sourced easily enough, Paul said, from a couple of suppliers in Melbourne. “I much prefer the Honda drive line. The original British-built Rover engines were really good but they did have a nasty habit of blowing head gaskets. “The Honda engine, though, is absolutely bullet-proof.” Paul said his Rover Sterling was a prestige car at the time, with an Australian list price in 1990 of $73,500. “They were dearer than a new Jaguar

Bullet-proof: The Honda engine with eight on-board computers is more reliable than the original Rover power plants. at the time,” he boasted. “The Sterling was the top of the Rover range and was loaded with all the toys. It had electric windows, power steering, a full sound system, air-conditioning. “In fact, they had eight on-board computers and ABS braking. They were one of the first cars in the world to employ ABS braking – apparently the cars were dubbed ‘Bionic Dogs’ either kindly or unkindly by some motor traders.” Paul recommended joining a car club. “We’re members of the Rover Car Club of Australia. Clubs are a good sup-

port base, too” he advised. “I’ve been in car clubs over the years and recommend anyone who is a car enthusiast to join one. They’re worth their weight in gold at times if you’re sourcing parts or trying to fix a problem. Would Paul consider selling either of his Rovers? “We wouldn’t trade them for the world,” he said. “Although the one car I would consider swapping them for would be a Rover 75, the last of the Rover range.

BY ERIC BLAIR ypically a Saab owner is someone who can afford a prestige Euro car, but doesn’t want to be seen at the wheel of a BMW or Mercedes-Benz. Saab owners are also very much into driving, not being averse to giving the car its head when they feel the need for a bit of speed. The Saab 9-5 is a medium-large Swedish sedan with good performance and plenty of refinement. It comes with a rugged build enabling it to survive life in the cold extremes of northern Europe. The 9-5 was a major step in the history of the Swedish car maker. With it, the designers took a determined decision to get back to its roots; that is away from the automotive mainstream. The big Swedish sedan is tall in the tail to make for a decent sized boot and most have four doors. The 9-5 sedan was one of the first of its type to use folding rear seats. Comfort is a major feature within the large cabin. The seats are big, support well and come in a quality soft leather. Styling of the 9-5 is distinctive, with the wide three-hole front, long bonnet and sweeping tail that are hallmarks of the company in the recent era. Styling was really reinforced in February 2005 with a major facelift that saw the three-hole theme carried all the way across the front of the car. This significantly changed the

T

image of the 9-5 and gave what was an aging body a new lease on life. Spare parts and servicing costs are about average for a car in this class. The Saab dealer network is rather small, but operates efficiently and we have heard no real complaints about supply. Some Holden dealers are also agents for Saabs. Several Euro car specialists are well versed in the marque. Imports of the Saab 9-5 to Australia were put on hold in September 2009. Negotiations are currently underway with Beijing Autos in China for a major injection of finance to keep Saab alive and let it produce new models. There no doubt that Koenigsegg understands the importance of keeping Saab as Saab as possible and we feel the future looks bright. The four-cylinder Saab 9-5 engines are all turbocharged, but to different levels of tune. The first models had a 2.0-litre engine; from February 2000 a 2.3litre became optional. That larger unit, again in several stages of power output, became standard from February 2001. Interestingly, a turbocharged V6 is offered in the 9-5’s smaller brother, the Saab 9-3, but not in the bigger car. Turbo-diesels joined the lineup in March 2008, but are still scare as used cars. The 1.9-litre, fourcylinder engine isn’t the best

around but is reasonably economical and provides good torque. Four-speed automatic transmission was used until 2001 when a five-speed tiptronic auto became available. Five-speed manuals are offered in some models, but are comparatively rare and could be hard to resell in a prestige market that’s increasingly populated by automatic-only cars. Make sure there isn’t a highpitched whistling sound from the turbocharger. They are generally very reliable but repairs can be expensive. Look to see there’s no smoking from the exhaust in either a turbo or V6 engine. The best way to check it is to run the car downhill for a fair distance with your foot off the throttle, then floor it as you start to climb the other side. Listen and feel for crunched gearchanges from a manual gearbox, these are easiest to provoke on fast third-to-second downchanges. Check for poorly executed crash repairs – mismatched paint and ripply panels are the simplest to spot. Go over the complete cabin for signs of neglect or harsh treatment. Pay special attention to the condition of the carpets and the state of the dash top. Make sure the ABS braking system works correctly, with a gentle pulsing through the pedal under hard use.

DON’T BE A VICTIM OF THE WINTER CAR HASSLES! The cold, rainy days of Winter are just around the corner. Don’t take chances with the reliability and safety of your vehicle. Take advantage of this special offer now - and avoid the winter car hassles.

WHILE the eyes of Cats fans remain firmly fixed on the powerhouse seniors team, Geelong’s VFL players have notched up a minor accomplishment going into a mid-season break. The Cats recorded their first back-to-back win of the season last weekend with a 34-point victory against Werribee Tigers at Skilled Stadium. Youngsters Daniel Menzel and Mitch Brown showed why they earned places with Geelong as first-round draft selections, booting four and five goals respectively. Menzel claimed a Damien Drum Medal for his best-on-ground performance in the wet conditions. Geelong sits tenth on the VFL ladder and four premiership points outside the eight. The Cats have won three matches for the season and lost six after a slow start. Werribee is second last in 13th place with a record of seven loses, one win and one draw. Casey Scorpions leads the competition with eight wins.

BY ANDREW MATHIESON SUPERCAT import Ismail Muhammad keeps breaking new ground every time he steps onto the court for Geelong. Even years before the 198cm forward first dropped his bags at the Geelong Arena, a leading US sports magazine had rated the SEABL club’s newest recruit the 2004 most exciting collegiate dunker. Only a handful of games into his second season this year, Muhammad was the first player to win back-to-back player of the week awards since 2007. Not only has the Supercat favourite since raised eyebrows amid NBL talent scouts, he is set to trial this week with Michael Jordan-owned club Charlotte Bobcats for a spot on its NBA roster next season. Whether the competition badge on the singlet ends with L or A, Muhammad is decidedly unfazed by the attention or the fame. “If the opportunity presents itself in the top leagues, of course it would be something I would be more than happy to play in,” Muhammad told the Independent. The Bobcats offer is the third time Muhammad has been linked to an NBA club. The four-day trial will coincide with the Supercats’ bye. The team expects Muhammad to return for next Friday’s home game against Knox.

NBA bid: Ismail Muhammad will try-out with Charlotte Bobcats before returning for the Supercats match against Knox. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 34766 He played second fiddle to teammate Nathan Herbert, ironically the Adelaide 36ers’ NBL star, who collected a game-high 36 points in the Supercats’ resounding 109-91 away win over Brisbane Spartans. But scoring a lazy 28 points, 12 rebounds and five assists, Muhammad’s role was more than just tuning up the band. The 26-year-old has credited settling into his surrounds better this year under new coach Jamie O’Loughlin for his form surge in

his second season at the club. “I think we’re clicking, have got good chemistry going and we’re riding the wave right now,” Muhammad said. “It’s just a matter of being comfortable. “I think the big difference is being in a new country but we’ve got most of the guys from last year, so it’s been a lot easier.” Geelong is eyeing off a top-two spot with a 10-8 win/loss record and eight games remaining before the finals.

City asked ‘to have a Heart’ BY ANDREW MATHIESON SOCCER’S newest club is dealing out its trump card to win the hearts of Geelong football fans. Melbourne Heart FC is monitoring the prospect of playing home games at Skilled Stadium for the 2011/12 season, the club’s second in the A-League competition. Heart chief executive Scott Munn has been in talks with Geelong Cats counterpart Brian Cook about the logistics of the switch of some home games from the new multi-million dollar AAMI Park. Munn said the club would “most certainly” set up at Skilled Stadium but was aiming to get a feel for the Geelong facilities sooner rather than later. “We were actually keen to play a pre-season match in Geelong this year but unfortunately (Geelong’s) council wasn’t supportive of that,” he told the Independent. “It’s something we’re certainly looking at; whether or not it would be a pre-season or an official A-League game. “It’s a great surface, a great stadium and we would be very open to any possibility.” Heart officials wanted to play A-League side Newcastle in a friendly this winter.

In talks: Geelong’s Brian Cook. “That’s not to say that down the track and in the future it is something they may re-consider,” Munn said. Geelong’s council still said Melbourne Heart’s proposal had been “unsuitable with regard to the timing and proposed commercial arrangements”. However, council still considered soccer a potential growth sport in Geelong. Crosstown rival Melbourne Victory’s only pre-season clash at Skilled Stadium was in 2007. Munn said the fledgling Heart club was looking to new markets to lure support and sign-up members. “We’d love to lure the whole Geelong region but we don’t have a number on it,” he said. “We think Geelong, for us,

ticks a lot of boxes. “I mean, Josip Skoko, I think he has got the keys to the city and he’s coming back and will play in our midfield.” Munn said Heart’s early commitment was to prove the club was “very serious” to kick a few goals before debuting in the ALeague in October. It was no coincidence the Heart’s visit coincided with Australia’s World Cup campaign and major sponsor Westpac’s Community Football Festival in Geelong. At least 35 players and officials were in Geelong over three days, culminating in a friendly hit-out against a regional development side at Lara on Thursday night. Munn said the club was looking at building a feeder system from Geelong’s young talent and could set up an academy in the future. “We haven’t dealt that far yet but certainly with (Thursday night’s) game we are still looking at a couple of players to fill our final list,” he said. “Our coaches are going there not only to coach our team but also to have a look at some of the young talent. “Hopefully we can unearth another Josip Skoko but we’ve got two spots on our lists and we’re looking at local talent to fill that list.”

sport Plastics fantastic in calm conditions on bay On the bite

Soft touch: Tim Carroll with a sample of his recent pinkie and salmon catches from Corio Bay.

Big Saints set for win

BRIAN LONG SOFT plastics anglers capitalised on generally settled conditions in the past week to stake the best fishing captures. Tim Carroll, his brother and father set the pace over two days fishing Corio Bay’s inner-harbour where they landed snapper to 2.5kg, salmon to 45cm and a few trevally and flathead. They had success on most of soft plastics they used, particularly Gulp and Squidgy minnows and flick baits. Trevor Sheavils fished landbased around the bay over the long weekend, catching and releasing any number of snapper to 45cm along with salmon close to 1kg while using Gulp three-inch minnows and Turtleback worms. Trevor found his fish at Rippleside, North Shore rocks and on the Geelong waterfront. Danny Holt achieved his bag limit of whiting on every outing over the week while fishing near Bird Rock. Danny said the best action was during the first two hours of the run-off tide. Similar reports of whiting came from Kirks Point, with most fish running between 32cm and 36cm and taken on pippies Xavier Johansen’s two allnight sessions on the bay last weekend were rewarded with four snapper from 4kg to 6.5kg. Xavier used a variety of baits but found that fresh squid caught earlier from off the spoil grounds near Hermsley were best. Wilson Spit was the productive location, with Xavier also catching and releasing seven small gummy sharks along with a number of rays. With squid still holding along the south shore grass beds, Henry Bolton tried casting small jigs from the shore between the Clifton Springs boat ramp and Hermsley. On two occasions he landed his bag limit on small, dark-natural coloured jigs. Salmon shoals were working close to shore between Point Wilson Pier and Werribee, with birds showing

the locations in calm conditions. However, anglers found trolling did not work well in the shallows, with drifting and casting small baitfish-profile lures or soft plastics the best method. Swan Bay continued to reward anglers keen enough to fish after dark for gummy sharks. David Shaw fished the jetty for a gummy that weighted 6kg cleaned, which was the best we saw for the week. Trevally continued to reward anglers in Queenscliff’s cut, with Shaun and Henry Stevens enjoying three hot sessions on soft plastics. The pair caught and released over 50 fish, the best around 1.5kg, with Turtleback worms and curl-tail grubs working a treat. Chris Stamalos and Mark Sesar found the fish right on the bite while using bluebait and squid along with a good berley trail. They caught a fish almost every cast during the last two hours of the rising tide. Surf anglers had a disappointing long weekend due to large shore breaks discolouring the water along much of our coast. However, fish were still there for the taking for anglers who found clean conditions. John Mole and I landed fish at Fairhaven on lures. Joe Farnsworth fished close to Lorne where he landed around 20 fish to 2kg on lures on the run-up to high tide in clear water. Bluefin tuna have been all the talk for weeks now, with the best fishing from Port Fairy. Maybe the mantle needs to now go to Apollo Bay, which is closer to home and has had many fish taken just a

SATURDAY will see the game of the year so far, with St Mary’s and Bell Park battling it out for second spot on the ladder at West Kardinia Oval. Finals are already foregone conclusion for both sides, so getting in an early crack at ascendency will be on both teams’ minds. St Mary’s has looked solid all year, with the experience of Jim Cail, Tim McLean, David Clarke and Ben Lavers driving the side. Throw in exciting youngsters Dan Jull and Luke Bath and you have a good mix. Bell Park has withstood every challenge thrown at it this season, especially last week when it thrashed fellow premiership contender Leopold. The Dragons have a few new players on its list this year in Kristian Bucovaz, Ben Kennedy and Nick Lowther and all have performed admirably. Speed seems to be the key to the Dragons’ success, with their running brigade of Ben Armstrong, Jason Graham and Tim Sheringham blitzing around the packs. St Mary’s is a bigger-bodied side and will no doubt exert plenty of physical pressure. Expect St Mary’s to just get over the line. Other selections: ST JOSEPHS v Colac, Newtown v GROVEDALE, LARA v St Albans, LEOPOLD v West Saints, SOUTH BARWON v North Shore.

BFL Ocean Grove finds itself two games outside Bellarine Football League’s top five and has to win tomorrow at home against Modewarre to stay in the hunt. The Grubbers have lost their last two matches, so you really have to start questioning whether they’re a worthy finalist. However, remember back three weeks to when the Grubbers rolled the highly rated Queenscliff and doubts about Ocean Grove’s worthiness can be dispelled. Where that form has gone is a question to which coach Cam McGregor will be seeking answers. One might be that last week’s huge loss to Drysdale indicated just how far ahead of the rest are the Hawks. Bernie Lynch, James McTaggart, Sam Fairway and Tyson Doherty are

Local Footy FRANK MASON doing their best and on their day the Grubbers are good. Modewarre is not having the best of years and sits second last on the ladder. Leading lights so far are Grant Walker, Josh Finch, Adam Leggett and Dan McCaskill. With these four in the side there is light at the end of the tunnel for the Warriors but the Grubbers will win this one to get their season back on track. Other selections: Anglesea v DRYSDALE, Portarlington v BARWON HEADS, QUEENSCLIFF v Newcomb, Torquay v AMATEURS.

GDFL Thomson makes the trip to Inverleigh tomorrow for Geelong and District Football League’s game of the day. These two sit outside the top five in sixth and seventh spot respectively and have to win this one to stay within striking distance or the top five. Inverleigh would be disappointed with its season so far but, to be fair, it hasn’t had a good run with injuries. Its reliance on gun forward Owen Lewis to kick bags of goals is a real weakness because the Hawks just can’t put a winning score on the board if the big bloke has a bad day or is double-teamed. Thomson was beaten by East Geelong last week and in the process lost a chance to climb into the five. The Tigers are going through a rebuilding phase at the moment and it would be strange to play a finals series without them but a loss tomorrow would make that scenario a real likelihood. Expect the Tigers to regroup and take the points. Other selections: ANAKIE v Belmont Lions, WERRIBEE CENTRALS v Winchelsea, North Geelong v BANNACKBURN, Corio v EAST GEELONG, Geelong West v BELL POST HILL.
