Kids ‘turned away’ Demand ‘too high’ for family violence agencies

THE HAMMER DROPS SALE!

The statistics showed one in four children had witnessed violence against a parent. Domestic Violence Victoria chief executive officer Fiona McCormack said the Geelong region’s support services were “pushed to the limit”. She called on political parties to address the problem in the lead-up to next weekend’s Victorian election. “We need to cut waiting times to no more than one month,” Ms McCormack said. “This could be achieved by doubling current expenditure for children’s family violence counselling and funding and

establishing 20 new positions across the state.” Attorney-General Rob Hulls defended State Government’s record on family violence. Labor had invested $176 million in programs targeting violence against women since 2005, he said. The investment included Family Violence Safety Notices allowing police to order perpetrators to leave family homes. Last week the Independent reported that Geelong Police had recorded a spike in reports of family violence, with an increase of 50 per cent in October.

family violence cases “as early as possible” but the rising demand had combined with a shortfall in resources to leave some people without support, she said. “Appropriate resources would enable us to work with families in crisis and also assist them a lot earlier than we’re able to at the moment.” Domestic Violence Victoria statistics for the Geelong region revealed that agencies were turning away two in three children seeking access to support programs. The organisation cited an “incapacity to meet demands”.

BY KIM WATERS “OVERWHELMING” demand is forcing Geelong support services to turn away children seeking help with domestic violence, according to a provider. Glastonbury Child and Family Services chief executive Gabrielle Nagle said the service was unable to cope with the amount of children desperate for help. “We’ve had to introduce waiting list strategies and absolutely we’ve had to turn some people away because sometimes if a family is in a crisis waiting isn’t an option,” Ms Nagle said.

Green bridge protest BY KIM WATERS THE GREENS will protest a State Government open day for Barwon Heads Bridge this weekend despite confirming the party will preference Labor’s South Barwon MP at next week’s election. Greens South Barwon candidate Simon Northeast said he would follow the party line even though Labor had handled the Barwon Heads Bidge project “very badly”. “My party has done a deal with the Labor party to preference us second in the Upper House for Western Victoria if we give them preferences for South Barwon in this election,” he said. “I’m a team player and I’m doing what is best for my party but Greens’ voters aren’t sheep. Our research shows Greens’ voters don’t follow our preference cards. “They will vote Greens’ first and then will decide on whoever they wish to put second.” Mr Northeast, a Surf Coast Shire councillor, said Greens members would join a community protest against the bridge project. “I understand there are some people in the community involved in the protest and others who are just going to ignore the whole thing,” he said. “I think the whole project has been handled really badly and the community has not been properly consulted or listened to. I don’t see why this open day had to be done prior to the election.” Barwon Heads Traders and Tourism Association’s Bernard Napthine said a majority of the community would boycott the official open day and naming ceremony on Saturday. “Most people are content to just stay away,” he said. “I think we’ll be speaking with our votes at the ballot box.”

Forming giant ribbon all white for participants

Health breakthrough

AROUND 1000 voices will say no to violence against women as part of a giant white ribbon on Skilled Stadium next week. A spokesperson for the event said the participants would bring the message of White Ribbon Day “to life”. Geelong health insurer GMHBA would provide white T-shirts to participants so they could create the “human white ribbon” about 1.30pm on Tuesday, the spokesperson said. Registration to participate was available by phoning Peter Kelly on 5260 3810 or by emailing peter.kelly@bawonhealth.org.au. The spokesperson said unregistered participants would be welcome to help form the ribbon if they arrived at the stadium with their own white attire. “We invite everyone in the community to support this event and to get behind the fight to speak out and pledge never to commit, excuse or remain silent about violence against women by attending our event in support of the White Ribbon Day Foundation.” Geelong will join other cities around Australia and the world to mark White Ribbon Day two days later. The day promotes opposition to violence against women, encouraging men in particular to speak out against or report other male perpetrators. Geelong Mayor John Mitchell said violence against women was “still too prevalent”. “I urge anyone who feels passionate about the issue to become involved in the White Ribbon Day campaign and to make it very clear that this type of violence will not be tolerated,” he said. The Independent is a supporter of White Ribbon Day.

GROUND-breaking Geelong research has discovered that immune system imbalances can bring on depression, according to Barwon Health. Associate Professor Julie Pasco and her team discovered that women’s blood levels of a particular protein connected to the immune system was related to the onset of depression.

Tunnel call GEELONG commuters to Melbourne would benefit if the major parties stopped their “spat” to get on with the job of building a proposed east-west tunnel as an alternative to West Gate Bridge, according to a business group. Victorian Chamber of Commerce and Industry said the tunnel would help cater for projected population growth so Geelong commuters could avoid peak hour traffic that bordered on “nightmarish”.

Christmas tree GEELONG’S tallest council Christmas tree will stand on the corner of Moorabool and Little Malop streets as City Hall begins putting out its festive season decorations, Mayor John Mitchell has announced. He said the “fantastic” new tree was 1.5 metres taller than the last, making it “the biggest we’ve had”.

Invention prize A MACHINE that turns text and speech into sign language has won an inaugural $40,000 prize for high-tech inventions in Geelong. ICT Geelong said Vibusham Lakshminarayan’s TESLA “sign language animator” would increase quality of life for the deaf.

Bunnings battle AN “EXPERT witness” will lead Surf Coast Shire’s planning tribunal fight against plans to build a Bunnings hardware store at the entrance to Torquay, according to the shire. The shire said it had “engaged” the witness to “help present council’s position” on the Bunning store, proposed to stand opposite Surf Coast Highway at Torquay’s West Coast Business Park.

Illegal sales A HIGHTON man must pay almost $4000 in fines and legal costs for illegally selling vehicles. Consumer Affairs Victoria said it used “sophisticated technology” to catch Philip Stefano, 38, selling vehicles through two websites.

years of dryness following the rain and the eastern Otways tends to dry out a bit quicker but grassland will be our bigger threat,” he said. “There is a significant amount of fuel. “The other threat out there is with a bit more rain a lot of farmers are doing a lot more cropping. We have significant levels of crops out there and they’re all doing quite well.” Mr Verdoorn said recent soaking rain would keep grounds wet, presenting difficulty for crews fighting fires. “If we have a grassfire before the ground really dries out we could get

our trucks bogged.” Mr Verdoorn said some CFA members would also face new challenges compared to recent drought seasons in the region. “Those who’ve joined over the past eight or nine years won’t have seen a severe running grassfire because of the previously dry seasons we’ve had. “Rain has helped fill dams with a lot more water but the extreme fuel loads will be our really big threat. “The fire season isn’t expected to kick in until after Christmas because the Bureau of Meteorology is telling us we’ll have reasonably steady rainfall

between now and late December.” Mr Verdoorn said the CFA would ramp up training until Christmas. “We also now have a structure that involves just three people during the fire reporting process whereas in past years information has travelled from person to person to person,” he said. “The other thing that’s happened since Black Saturday and the Royal Commission is an emphasis on emergency management arrangements “The quicker we can get information out to people the quicker they can make decisions on.” Letters, page 27

BY ERIN PEARSON GRASSFIRE risks will threaten townships around Geelong this summer after drought-breaking rain, according to Country Fire Authority. But operations manager Gerry Verdoorn said parts of the Otways would face a reduced risk, with sodden forests unlikely to catch fire. Mr Verdoorn said areas surrounding Geelong from Lara to Inverleigh and Winchelsea were at the most risk of fire this summer as grassland and crops reached record growth. “Central Otways (areas) are the wettest they’ve been in a while after 11

“It is clear that the community does not want development in Spring Creek. Why do a handful of developers have more power than several thousand residents?� Speak Up For Spring Creek’s David Bell told the Independent residential growth should occur

Harbour offer set for project BY ANDREW MATHIESON LEOPOLD is set for its own boating facility after the town’s councillor welcomed an offer of a free harbour. Cr Rod Macdonald said he hoped the harbour to open in the “next year or twoâ€? after council finished work on other infrastructure projects. “I think it’s a great idea and it’s something I’d like to pursue,â€? Cr Macdonald said. “At this point there are a lot of priorities (council) has for Leopold that will take precedence‌.but a (harbour) facility is

something I’ll get to when we get moving.� The Independent reported last week that land owner Denis More was willing to hand over the harbour he illegally built five years ago after council recently lifted a development moratorium on the site. Council forced Mr More to block the harbour’s entrance to Corio Bay with rocks after discovering he built the harbour without a permit. Mr More, who has a permit to build a caravan park near the harbour, said he would donate it to council so it could deliver a 20062016 strategic plan objective of a

“boat launching facility� for Leopold. Cr Macdonald confirmed he had been in brief talks with Mr More. The harbour donation would be “a great gesture�, Cr Macdonald said. “I support that and I know that the broader community supports it, so I will be pursuing it but at this point Denis hasn’t gone any further with making any firm commitments yet other than he’s interested. “I intend to follow it up because I think it will be great and provide another valuable community recreational resource.�

“ Let’s keep investing in our hospitals. � A future Brumby Labor Government will invest $85 million for a new community hospital at Grovedale. This hospital will include: „ Acute inpatient medical services „ Pregnancy and post-natal care „ Elective and day surgery services „ Palliative care services „ Extended hours bulk billing GP. The new hospital will be designed to allow for future expansion to grow with community needs.

CLOSES

The City of Greater Geelong has announced a month long Dog and Cat Registration Amnesty during November 2010. The purpose of the Amnesty is to provide assurance to dog and cat owners to come forward and register their animals with the City without fear of a penalty being issued for keeping an unregistered dog and/or cat. Council adopted the Amnesty which will operate between 1 and 30 November at its meeting on Tuesday 12 October. Geelong residents are amongst the highest owners of dogs and cats in Australia. As a means to manage domestic pets, legislation requires that local government register all cats and dogs being kept within its municipality. Dog and cat registration and identification are basic, essential functions of municipal animal management.

Any person, including owners and occupiers of land that may be materially affected by the amendments is entitled to make submissions in accordance with sections 21 and 21A of the Planning and Environment Act 1987. Please be aware that all submissions may be made available to any person for the purpose of consideration as part of the planning process.

The benefits of pet registration identification are that it: • Links the animal with its owner to enable the return of lost animals. • Provides management information to the City to best manage animal incidents. • Provides a unique source of data about local pet populations and trends.

Kim McGough Manager, Planning and Development Barwon South West Region Department of Planning and Community Development

Current data indicates that approximately 75 per cent of dog owners and 30 per cent of cat owners will voluntarily comply with pet registration and identification requirements.

REVISED LAYOUT PLAN FOR FORMER GEELONG GOLF COURSE SITE

Residents who may be keeping unregistered dogs and/or cats may have done so for a number reasons including but not limited to: • May have forgotten to renew their previous year’s registration. • Having not registered in the first instance, may not be aware that there is a requirement to register their dog/cat with the City. • Not being on the City’s Animal Database, residents will not have received animal information relating to new/renewed registration of dogs or cats.

At its meeting on 26 October 2010 Council resolved to undertake public notification of the revised layout plan proposed for the former Geelong Golf Course site in order to ascertain the community’s views on the revised layout plan.

At the conclusion of the Amnesty on 30 November, dog or cat owners who fail to register and identify their animals with Council will be subject to an on the spot penalty of $239. Dog or cat owners will be given 14 days to register the dog or cat with the City to avoid further legal proceedings. Dog and cat owners can take advantage of half price registration (new registrations only) at the current fee schedule. If your 2010 registration has not been renewed a 12 month fee will apply.

Council will consider any submissions received by 26 November 2010 in relation to the revised layout plan in order to make an informed decision on the development. However it should be noted that this plan is exempt from formal public notification and review rights under the Planning and Environment Act 1987. The revised layout plan can be viewed at either: • Myers Street Customer Service - 131 Myers Street, Geelong Weekdays 8.00am - 5.00pm • Geelong West Customer Service - 153A Pakington Street Geelong West Weekdays 11.00am - 2.00pm Any person wanting to make a submission should send it to the Statutory Planning unit, City of Greater Geelong, PO Box 104, Geelong VIC 3220.

Fifteen year old Reshae Armstrong from Bannockburn is our female winner. Reshae attends school at Christian College Highton, is a member of the Bannockburn Golf Club with a current handicap of 38. She loves playing golf as it combines three important parts of her life: time with her family (especially Dad or Uncle who she partners on competition days), meeting people and being outside in the fresh air. Our male winner is fourteen year old Josh Groom from Grovedale who attends Grovedale College and is in year 8. Josh is a member of Barwon Valley Golf Club with a handicap of 33. Josh loves all sports but his passion and challenge is golf. He doesn’t mind what weather conditions he plays in as his words are “I love it that much I have to play.” We see this program as only the start of the GGA and hope to be able to offer future rewards and opportunites to young golfers. It’s not just about fostering good golfers; it’s about fostering golf in it’s totality and educating them to the highest level. We are looking forward in educating our students, with this program being both fun and enjoyable. Congratulations Reshae and Josh.

BY ERIN PEARSON A KNEE injury will keep Supercats star Nathan Herbert off the basketball court until late next year, he has revealed. The success story of South East Australian and Australia’s national basketball leagues said he ruptured an anterior cruciate ligament during a pre-season match with the Adelaide 36ers in South Australia. Herbert was aiming for a “slow and steady” recovery following surgery on the injury in late September. A shattered Herbert said the damage was “clean” but surgeons have revealed he would remain sidelined until “at least next July”. “They expect I’ll be back after my honeymoon, which will be in the second half of the year,” he said. “At the moment I’m just trying to stay positive.” Herbert, who plays for both the 36ers and Geelong Supercats, said his recuperation focus was now on reducing swelling in the knee while maintaining light weights work. “Right after surgery was the hardest part so far because there wasn’t a lot I could do with the team,” he said. “Eventually, once the first few months are over, I’ll hopefully be able to move more freely.” A member of the 2010 SEABL championship side, the 26-year-old forward has been a part of the Supercats team for eight seasons. He joined South Dragons national team in 2008 as a development player before moving to the Adelaide 36ers in 2009. He continues to play in both the SEABL and NBL competitions. Other NBA outfits Cairns Taipans, Sydney Kings and Wollongong Hawks have also been plagued with knee injuries, all with players sidelined.

A HUSBAND-and-wife team from Lara will join other victorious pairs from around the Geelong region to vie for a place in one of Australia’s “richest tournaments”, according to organisers. Lara’s Joe and Elke Vanbaar progressed to the regional finals of the AER Mixed Parks Challenge after winning their club’s round this month. A challenge spokesperson said the AER Mixed Pairs attracted “thousands” of entries around Australia. Regional winners would progress to state finals due in early December. The state finals champions would win airfare and accommodation packages to contest an Australian Open in Melbourne during February, the spokesperson said.

sport Wet and wild WHILE wet weather may have frustrated Geelong and perhaps cost it points in the opening month of the season, it was the Cats’ saviour on Saturday when a downpour kept their loss to a minimum first-innings result. Melbourne University had the Cats on the ropes leading into day two and would have hoped for an outright result, but, as has been the case so often lately, Mother Nature intervened. There was some play on Sunday, though, in the semi-final of the one-day competition in which Carlton travelled to Kardinia Park needing a victory to progress to the final. The Blues went to work on a wet wicket, drying out the playing surface with heavy-duty equipment. Their reward was a dominant victory, keeping Geelong to just 9/86 from 20 overs. Carlton won easily by six wickets, although Marc Carson tried hard to salvage some pride with two wickets and a run-out. Tomorrow Geelong travels to Footscray Edgewater in a two-day game the Cats must win to ensure their good early season work doesn’t go to waste. Geelong Cricket Association begins it’s fifth round of the season tomorrow and in truly amazing circumstances the past three rounds have all been washed out.

Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE Bell Post Hill goes into tomorrow’s match against South Barwon without having batted at all this season. With a host of experienced players having left Myers Reserve over the winter, even more pressure will fall on gun batsman Alex Cairns. He, along with Brad Stacey and Travis Faulkhead, will need to lead a young squad from the front. South Barwon will also rely on experience in the form of Brad Hauenstein who will need to perform with both bat and ball because the Swans’ attack lacks penetration without Brett Anderton who is currently not playing. The Swans should have enough good players to win. Selections: Lara v EAST BELMONT, ST JOSEPHS v Thomson, Bell Post Hill v SOUTH BARWON, NORTH GEELONG v Manifold Heights, Newtown & Chilwell v GROVEDALE, GEELONG WEST v Leopold.

In division two only five clubs have a win to their name, causing a serious log jam on the ladder. This will mean the three games to be played before the Christmas break will be a frantic rush for points. Among crucial games starting tomorrow and involving teams in the middle is the clash of Marshall and Murgheboluc, with a loss to either likely to be disastrous. Marshall has struggled this season, while Murgheboluc felt the full wrath of St Albans Breakwater last game when it lost on day one. Selections: Marshall v MURGHEBOLUC, Highton v GEELONG CITY, GUILD ST MARY’S v Torquay, NEWCOMB & DISTRICT v North Shore, ST PETERS v Alexander Thomson, ST ALBANS BREAKWATER v Waurn Ponds. Modewarre finds itself in earlyseason trouble in division three, slumping to seventh on the ladder. Modewarre takes on bottom placed Bell Park this round, with the winner to put themselves back in contention while the loser will face long road back to play finals. Selections: MODEWARRE v Bell Park, Corio v BANNOCKBURN, Inverleigh v TEESDALE, Lethbridge v CORIO BAY, Little River v MEREDITH, Winchelsea Bye.

Trollers bag snapper in big week I CAN’T recall as many snapper captures as in the past fortnight, with fish taken from both bays as well as offshore. Darren Fraser fished the Wilson Spit area for over 20 in two outings, with his best nudging 9kg. All were taken on fresh squid. Nearby Harry James also landed 20 but on Gulp soft plastics. Daniel Skene was one of a number of anglers trying trolling for snapper, with some outstanding results. Fish to 8.3kg were taken this week by this method. The key seems to be presenting a lure within 1.3 metres of the bottom at a very slow pace. Rapala Tail Dancers have been the clear favourite due to their ability to dive to 9m. David Thorpe chased the snapper in Stingaree Bay where in a four hour session he caught three from 2kg to 3.4kg. Pilchard seems to be the bait here. Corio Bay rewarded soft plastics anglers with some awesome flathead, many over 50cm. Squidgy Wrigglers and Critters were successful, with North shore rocks, the grammar school lagoon and Geelong waterfront all productive. Paul Sharp fished among the moorings at Fisherman’s Pier where good numbers of bream to 35cm were available on soft plastics. Jacob Knowles made the long trek in to Point Lillias where he found a huge shoal of salmon, catching around 15 and losing a similar number to thrown treble hooks. Some of the fish were

On the bite BRIAN LONG over 2kg. Long Reef also produced salmon, with Sam Stoner catching them on a slow-trolled Rapala minnow lure while fishing for pike. Squid continued providing a top feed and outstanding bait, with any of the inshore grass beds yielding captures for anglers using small, naturalcoloured jigs. Queenscliff cut again provided hot fishing for a mix of salmon, tommy rough, trevally and snapper. Bait anglers were successful but soft plastics had the best results. Swan Bay’s entrance had plenty of squid but the salmon that showed up excited anglers, with fish to 1.8kg taken from inside the bay itself. Numerous reports came in of big garfish from St Leonards. Hopefully these fish push further up the bay and spread out as they normally do over summer. Mick Knight landed his bag limit catch of big squid several times over the week from Long Boot Reef, which is an area close to Queenscliff known only by a small number of anglers who like to keep it secret, so I can’t

go into detail on this location. Numbers of snapper, gummy and school shark were available offshore, with reports coming from anywhere between 11 and 25 metres of water. Collendina and Black Rock were particularly busy. Black Rock remained the hot the land-based destination for surf fishing, with snapper to 1.2kg and quality whiting taken. Cathedral Rock, near Lorne, also returned snapper and whiting, with high tides late in the evening best. Bream were still being taken in most local estuaries, with the Barwon River and Spring Creek fishing well. Bait anglers need fresh baits such as shrimp, sandworm or bass yabby, while lure enthusiasts can use a mix of both hard-bodies and soft plastics. In freshwater, Lake Purrumbete produced both rainbow and brown trout. Trolling was the best method, with flatlined Atomic shads and Tassie Devils behind a cow bell or Ford Fender bringing results. Lake Bullen Merri was best for shore-based anglers, with Powerbait fished on the bottom ideal. However, the new Gulp crickets fished under a float have also been fantastic.

Gone: Ford has reassigned Marin Burela from president and chief executive officer to a new role in China as the automotive giant enforces down days at its Geelong plant. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 45701

Ford ‘down days’ before Christmas BY ANDREW MATHIESON FORD workers will be hundreds of dollars out of pocket heading into Christmas after the company told them to accept more “down days” as car production slows, according to a unionist. The forced down days coincide with a “reduction” in the Geelong aluminium manifold plant after the motor giant outsourced the fabrication of plastic manifolds to another company in the region. Production in up to five areas of the Geelong Ford plant will now cease for up to eight days during the remainder of the year, with the first two on Monday and Tuesday this week.

A 40 per cent pay cut from the down days would equate to nearly $500 in lost wages for most workers. Some are considering topping up their pay packets with benefits from sick and annual leave to make ends meet. Senior union shop steward Brendan Sexton said “volume changes” forced changes to production schedules. “I have to say it’s hard on them but I can only say the union has put in good arrangements to help compensate them with those difficulties,” Mr Sexton said. “In the last (enterprise bargaining agreement), being able to ensure that sick pay could top up those down days addresses a

lot of those issues from the union perspective. “Hopefully not too many people won’t have enough leave and struggle in this period for Christmas.” The last of the eight scheduled down days included time off on December 16 and 20 in the final days before Christmas. The setback could affect up to 80 per cent of Geelong operations. Mr Sexton said the company was having “an each way bet” on production levels. “Ford are just making sure they’re not caught with too many cars at the end,” he said. He was confident the down days would not affect contracts

with Bosch, which this year saved more than 50 Ford jobs. Plastic manifolds had started to replace aluminium on Ford models including Territory. Mr Sexton expected the union would fight to keep jobs at Ford. “Hopefully we can argue for some in-sourcing and more work and there won’t be an affect on employees,” he said. The down days follow the reassignment of Geelong’s Marin Burela as Ford Australia president and chief executive officer to the Chinese market this month. Ford appointed Mr Burela as president and chief two years ago.

An aerial photograph will be taken of the formation. Afterwards relax and enjoy guest speakers and a Sausage Sizzle. Geelong Says NO! To violence against women. For more information about White Ribbon Day go to our website www.geelongaustralia.com.au or phone 5272 5272.

BY ANDREW MATHIESON A CHEF who turned industrial workers off fatty food in just months is launching a bold public campaign with a demonstration of healthy alternatives to reduce the risk of heart attack. Saving lives with a chef’s knife rather than a surgeon’s blade is close to Sarah Kelsall’s heart. She developed her Pro Heart Cooking Demonstrations for heart-attack survivors after her father suddenly died aged 52. “I became a chef first and then the challenge was to create nicetasting food but with healthier choices,” she said. “When my dad died of a heart attack it inspired me to go down this path and do more. “It did affect me and it’s just sort of now that I’m taking a lot of notice of my own health.” Mrs Kelsall, who has been a qualified chef for eight years, wants to challenge the misconception that healthy eating must mean longer preparation and compromises on taste. But her heart-smart meals were initially hard to swallow among many workers at Alcoa’s Point Henry plant. The 30-year-old said breaking old eating habits at the plant cafeteria was “a bit of a shock” to the workers on their slow conversion to health food. “When I started there four months ago it was just a bain-marie full of deep-fried food,” she said. “We’ve been able to reduce that food back to just a really small section. We’re trying to offer

Boss defends ambo services Mr Rogers met Ballarat paramedics after last week’s Independent revealed they had voted a motion of no-confidence in the Geelong dispatch centre, which was now handling their call-outs. The Ballarat paramedics believed the move to Geelong highlighted a shortfall in ambulance services. “We met with staff involved on Tuesday to discuss their claims

and the current situation. We have investigated the claims made and have discussed the outcomes with our staff,” Mr Rogers said. “This will include providing examples and explanations and highlighting changes to our practice.” Mr Rogers promised 41 new paramedics for the service’s Barwon South-West region. But the new recruits would not

start work until “early next year” when they had finished university, he said. “There will be some upgrade of services to give more coverage and the extra paramedics will also provide for better breaks and sick leave coverage, meaning a higher level of coverage overall.” Ambulance Employees Australia state secretary Steve McGhie said more paramedics were needed on

the ground “now”. “The longer we wait for that the longer people’s lives will be put at risk,” he said. “The only thing that will fix this is to make sure there are enough ambulance crews to cover the workload.” Mr McGhie said the centre had repeatedly dispatched Ballarat paramedics to cases in Geelong on code one emergencies, leaving the

BY ERIN PEARSON SUCCESSFUL toy drives will help stimulate the minds of children in five schools around Geelong’s northern suburbs, according to a teacher. Corio Primary School’s Amanda Baulch said hundreds of new toys from the drives would banish boredom from playgrounds. “The art of imaginative play is something that is lacking in a lot of children’s play. We’re aiming to be proactive by giving children things to stimulate this type of play and language development,” Ms Baulch said. “In many schools across the Geelong region recess and lunchtimes can be a difficult time for children as they wander around the school deciding what to do.” “Children are outside for 90 minutes a day, so why not take learning outside and let them use this time to develop their language and cooperation skills and their imaginations.” Ms Baulch said Geelong Men’s Shed and students from Bellaire Primary and Geelong Grammar middle schools made or gathered the toys. “Through these wonderful organisations our classrooms will be filled with lots of imaginative writing and talking.” Ms Baulch hoped to spread the program across the region with the help of others schools and businesses and community groups.

Geo-power plant set for Alcoa land BY ERIN PEARSON ALCOA has signed an agreement to host a controversial geothermal power plant on the company’s Surf Coast coal mine land, according to a spokesperson. But the spokesperson said Alcoa was as yet unable to say whether the agreement with Greenearth Energy could allow the aluminium giant to close its coal-fired power plant near Anglesea. The spokesperson called the agreement a “zero-emission power investment” for Alcoa. “We are interested in looking

at energy sources all the way around the world that are renewable, as we are using renewable energy in Iceland now.” The spokesperson said the Greenearth project could deliver a reliable zero-emission energy source on Alcoa’s “doorstep”. “Other power sources have high levels of intermittency and this project, as a base-load generator, could provide reliable power,” the spokesperson said. Alcoa uses the Anglesea coal-fired station to supply around 40 per cent of the power requirement at the company’s Point Henry operations. Greenearth Energy managing

director Mark Miller said the memorandum of intent between the companies was to select a “drill location” close to the Alcoa power plant. “Alcoa, by way of support, could potentially benefit from having a base-load renewable energy emissions-free power plant within their vicinity,” Mr Miller said. He called the MOI the “first step” toward establishing baseload geothermal power in Victoria. Mr Miller said exploration drilling would determine the final site on Alcoa’s mining lease.

Greenearth Energy’s “proposed geothermal project resource area” was approximately nine kilometres north-west of the Alcoa operation, he said. Gherang residents have opposed the geothermal project, fearing a range of environmental threats ranging from water contamination to earthquackes. Harnessing geothermal power involves tapping deep-underground heat to produce electricity. Greenearth Energy told the Independent in July it planned to have the plant running in 12 months.

A $3.6 MILLION suicide prevention project will target homosexual and “gender-questioning” youths in the Geelong region, Mental Health Minister Lisa Neville has announced. Ms Neville, the Labor Member for Bellarine, also revealed State Government plans for a separate program targeting Kooris as part of a focus on “Aboriginal and same-sex-attracted young people”. Ms Neville said the youth plan would target Geelong and Shepparton. “We want to ensure we are providing the right support for vulnerable young people, which is why we are investing in more funding for prevention services.” Geelong’s share of the funding would be $215,000 annually over four years for council’s Geelong Adolescent Sexuality Project (GASP). The program would “strengthen the relationships” between GASP and other youth agencies including mental health and housing services, she said.

‘Recycle pipe’ RACV option

Sale

BY ERIN PEARSON RACV could wean its $90 million Torquay Golf Course redevelopment off Jan Juc stormwater and onto recycled product from Black Rock, according to Surf Coast Shire. Shire sustainable communities director Dennis Barker has told a council meeting that an approved recycled water pipeline for northern Torquay could extend to the golf course in around five years. Council could consider the recycled water “alternative” when it reviewed RACV’s five-year

Councillors approved the licence amid concerns about the impact on Jan Juc Creek, which drains stormwater to the sea. The licence allows RACV to use the drain water for 10 years with an option of a further 10. Council’s licence included an annual “connection fee” of $5000. Cr Dean Webster said an RACV letter of commitment and a $50,000 contribution would accompany the five-year review of the licence. Council surprised RACV in April with a vote to reject its initial application based on concerns for Jan Juc Creek.

licence to harvest Jan Juc drains, he said. Mr Barker expected Barwon Water to begin work on the pipeline to Torquay around the end of next year. “This would allow for future investigative options for the use of recycled water across other areas, including the RACV site.” RACV started work on the redevelopment last week after councillors approved the licence to take water from drains for watering the course with 50 conditions including a range of environmental works.

A NEWTOWN artist with a disability has won a place in an exhibition at Melbourne’s Federation Square. Mary Howarth’s painting, titled Pauline’s Summer Breeze, will go on display in the square’s atrium with more than 150 other works as part of the ADEC ArtAbility 2010 exhibition. Curator Helen Keelings said the exhibition featured the works of 93 ethnic artists with disabilites. Each artists had submitted a work reflecting what summer meant to them, she said. “This big exhibition is bold, fascinating and full of imagination. There is a joyful and colourful commentary on what summer feels, tastes and looks like and then translated onto canvas, paper, wood and fabric in wonderful ways. “The paintings are either sophisticated or simple, varying in styles from abstract to realist, art deco and post modern to expressionist.” Ms Keelings said the fifth annual ArtAbility exhibition would run from December 6 to 14. Entry would be free, she said, with artworks on sale at prices ranging from $20 to $500. More information at www.adec.org.au.

A finery time for city’s centenary COUNCILLOR John Mitchell has dusted off his historic mayoral robes and 18-carat-gold chain to launch celebrations of Geelong’s centenary since proclamation as a city. He wore the finery of many mayors past outside City Hall on Tuesday while raising one of 40 banners to fly around the city during the celebrations. Council would also mark the centenary with a mayoral ball next week as well as reproduction of photos from the past 100 years in the City’s annual calendar, he announced. “The 100th anniversary is an opportunity to reflect on all that has occurred in the past 100 years in Geelong,� Cr Mitchell said. “While our city has grown considerably, I think there is something about the spirit of Geelong that is unchanging. “When you look at the photographs from 100 years ago you see that many of the things we enjoy today were just as popular back then, including our love affair with

Flagging intentions: John Mitchell dresses up to raise a centenary banner. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 56596 our coastal environment and our obsession with football.� Cr Mitchell said the Blue Ribbon Mayoral Ball at Geelong Arena on November 20 would celebrate the centenary while raising money for a new children’s ward at the city’s public

hospital. “Needless to say Geelong Hospital has played a central role in the history of the city, so I can think of no more fitting focal point during the anniversary celebrations.�

Study ‘reveals bamboo keys’ GEELONG research has unlocked the secret to bamboo’s sunscreen qualities, according to Deakin University. Deakin said PhD candidate Tarannum Afrin would soon publish a study identifying a component of the plant than helped it block harmful UV radiation. Ms Afran was also working on a method for environmentally friendly processing bamboo fibre for clothing material, Deakin said. Ms Afran, who studies in Deakin’s Institutte for Technology Research and Innovation at Waurn Ponds, said bamboo was an “emerging fibre� for textile and medical industries. “Manufacturers have long

claimed that bamboo products have a range of properties including excellent appearance and feel, natural antibacterial, UV-shielding and moisture-controlling characteristics but none of these claims have been proven scientifically,� she said. Her research could be key to producing clothing material with inherent sun-block qualities. However, Ms Afran said a chemical-reliant method of processing bamboo “wasn’t friendly to the environment�. “The process were are developing allows us to process the plant into a fibre in an environmentally friendly way while retaining the UV qualities (as well as) the wick-

ing and anti-bacterial properties.� Ms Afran believed bamboo was a “promising alternative� to other fibres including cotton and silk, which were “labour and resource intensive�. “Bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants in the world,� she said. “It can grow up to one metre overnight and as a result spreads rapidly across large areas. The yield from an acre of bamboo is 10 times greater than that from cotton.� Ms Afran said pesticides, chemical weeding, insecticides and fungicides were also unnecessary to grow bamboo. “Unlike cotton� it also needed no irrigation, she said.

Next wave of heritage

(Per piece)

PRE-LOVED CLOTHING ONLY SALE

ANDREW MATHIESON STUCK with just a six-foot board in the unforgiving ocean, sometimes Steve Parker gets caught in a pipeline of a different sort where the indigenous surfer slips into his own Dreamtime. “I look around and I feel like I’m connected to the water,” he says, looking out into Wye River’s swell. “Where I come from, my people are from the Torres Strait Islands and are the Yorta Yorta, the river people. “I’m also part of the Birrarung and all of these have water elements to their lives, especially my island side.” An Aboriginal flag tattoo inked onto his left arm ensures that heritage is never far away in the water. He snaps back to reality as a curly wave rolls in. “That’s sometimes a bit scary,” Steve grins. “When you’re inside one of those tubes, time just stops.” Surfing has been an escape for the 33-year-old with an unconventional past. When Steve was a kid, he was a bit of a skater around Warragul’s parks. Dad was a surfboard shaper, though, so slowly the son gravitated toward the beach. First, Phillip Island held appeal but now it’s the Surf Coast’s undulating waves. Steve spends most of his time in Torquay teaching indigenous youth to surf – many for the first time – to build self-esteem and promote a healthy lifestyle. It’s a path that leads back to his roots. “I have been on my own journey,”

No slouch: Steve shows his style. He thinks back to the humble beginnings. “Over the years I’ve done programs when no one’s turned up,” he laughs, “but we always keep coming back.” Some Koori kids have taken to surfing like ducks to water, Steve says. “I’ve had kids come down from the Murray region who have had no experience in the ocean or haven’t ever seen it and they’ve jumped out on the boards. “It was like they had been doing it for 10 years or something.” One family from Swan Hill moved down to the Geelong region when their kids excelled at surfing. Others haven’t been so keen to pry their children away from the usual footy, boxing or basketball pursuits. Steve recounts a few convincing lines he used on parents. “Do you mean bribing?” he sheepishly asks before rehearsing, “I’ve got a free wetsuit here.” One of Steve’s ambitious plans is to have one of his indigenous surfers on the professional circuit. It would fill Steve with unmistakable pride. “Bloody oath my chest would swell out,” he smiles.

Teacher: Steve Parker prepares to hit the surf with a new batch of koori learners. Steve reminisces. “I was adopted when I was a baby but I found my mum when I was 11, so being able to do this for surfing takes me back to my real community. “I’m constantly meeting cousins and family everywhere I go. “Not being around community when you’re growing up and then reaching your community is like finding family.” After he obtained his level-one surf coaching certificate just over a decade ago, Surfing Victoria approached Steve about running a few indigenous programs. He remembers Surfing Victoria chief Max Wells telling him: “We’ve got a bit of funding for you”.

That was barely $1000 to run initial surf tours to Warrnambool, Bridgewater and Torquay. “We were happy to start it off small and with our (Victorian) koori titles and were able to make it stretch with the kids,” Steve says. The titles started out with 35 nervous souls at Warrnambool but nine years later it has peaked at 220 surfers, with the competition now run over two days at Urquhart’s Bluff, between Anglesea and Airey’s Inlet. Steve also created a Geelong development squad from 10 of the keenest indigenous surfers in the region. Nearly a dozen of his pupils now have coaching certificates of their own, which quickly raises a smile

letters Victims derided I READ the words of Senior Constable Brendan Whitefield in last week’s Geelong Independent about how the overwhelming victims of domestic assault were women. He suggested that women were too afraid to come forward due to threats of retribution. As an assault victim, my report to Geelong Police Station was met with derision and amusement by one officer in particular. I was advised to see a solicitor by the other. Geelong Police are not interested in complaints by women, particularly senior citizens. Interestingly enough, my counsellor told me he had heard similar complaints from another patient. It all seems fishy. Victorian Police has a public relations problem and the culture of the force seems to be lacking respect. There are more than the reasons put forth by Snr Const Whitefield why women don’t call the police and for this they have a lot to answer for. Wendy Maguire Herne Hill

Elderly unheard I HAD a similar experience to Justine Marion with Member for South Barwon Michael Crutchfield (Letters, November 12). On my first call at his office for a meeting to discuss attacks and threats by neighbours I was asked to tell my story. The young man at the reception desk asked me: “Do you expect a policeman on every corner to protect you?” I left my name and number and requested an interview at the convenience of the MP. Having heard nothing I called several weeks later and was granted an interview. As our discussion was in private I repeated the foul language that I and others were subjected to in order to illustrate the problem and the level of threatening behaviour. Mr Crutchfield objected to such language and I was ushered out of his office. I also tried to draw the attention of Minister for the Aged Lisa Neville. I was told that the minister was very busy and could not possibly interview me. I was finally asked: “What do you want the minister to do about your problem?” My reply was to ask that, having exhausted such avenues as the police, wasn’t the minister paid to find solutions to such problems? As a Labor supporter over many years I cannot vote for it again.

Three days to go for lifetime pension I AM constantly amazed at the short memories of the majority of Australian voters. They write letters to newspapers, phone radio stations etcetera to complain about how dishonest, sly and inept is the Labor party at both federal and state levels but almost trip over themselves running to the polling booths to try to vote them back in again. They remind me of an old dog sitting on a rusty nail, howling and whining instead of standing up and making an effort to change the situation.

Many people I speak to say “I’ll never vote Labor again” but a lot still do because they are just like the Labor party: full of hot air. I will not be surprised if a re-elected Michael Crutchfield loses even more interest in his seat of South Barwon after he has done his necessary thee days after the election to qualify for his taxpayer-funded, lifetime pension (Independent, October 8) and resigns at or before the following election. Daryl Bayliss Torquay

Michael Crutchfield

PERHAPS someone with a better memory than mine will correct me but I seem to remember that almost every winter Anglesea River floodwaters would break the sand bar at the river’s mouth and empty out the accumulated stagnant water. The joke was that the river level was lower in winter than summer! The sand bar was soon built up again by the surf. This was also a regular occurrence with other coastal rivers and creeks. So, to me, there is good precedence for the bar to be manually removed (Independent, November 12) - it won’t need much excavating as the banked up waters will soon scour out to a natural level. John Fairnie Highton

one of Victoria ’s jewels it needs its own administration in the form of a municipal council. The peninsula endures a second-rate position as a lesser part of City of Greater Geelong, which is happy to collect the peninsula’s rate monies. Perhaps out of necessity the City concentrates on many other concerns, including for instance the huge demands of the planned development of Armstrong Creek. Peninsula ratepayers have every right to question why such a new and substantial development is supported with our rate monies while our own area is so neglected and lacking in adequate services. We see Armstrong Creek given preference in matters of transport, health and other services to cope with a substantial population influx while the peninsula languishes despite its own substantial population, now more than 50,000 people and projected to reach 70,000 within a few years. Surely this would be large enough to re-create of Rural City of Bellarine, which would be larger than many other Victorian municipalities. Peter Cowden Bellarine

Peninsula up Creek

The cost of water

FOR MORE than 150 years the Bellarine Peninsula has developed at a slow pace and remained a haven for those who preferred a quiet but industrious life. However, recently it has become a place of rapid population growth and has been heavily promoted for tourism. A lack of adequate planning to enable the peninsula to cope with the demands of this relatively recent development is obvious. To ensure the peninsula takes its rightful place as

I WRITE to provide some clarity about the Greens’ position on water. The Greens believe water should be sustainably managed as a public asset and shared equitably between all species, the environment and present and future generations. Climate change is making Victoria drier as demand for water continues to increase. After the RACV reneged on it’s initial commitment to use recycled water at Torquay Golf Course,

It seems that we are voting cattle to be rounded up and massaged at election time but ignored once Labor is in government. J Esterhazy Belmont

Go with the flow

I moved a unanimously supported motion supporting RACV’s proposal to harvest stormwater from council’s stormwater pipes within the Jan Juc catchment. Conditons were essential to ensure the harvesting could actually contribute to the long-term health of Jan Juc Creek, which experts found to be a highly degraded system. Water pricing is necessary to reflect scarcity, real delivery costs and administration while encouraging efficient use. I maintain the position that, legally, Surf Coast council had the power to charge a fee for the water and should not have agreed to zero dollars per megalitre in lieu of a connection fee. Any development needs to be sustainable, protect ecosystems and take into account economic, social and environmental considerations. Simon Northeast Greens candidate South Barwon

Blind approval ON NOVEMBER 10 radio’s Jon Faine hosted a debate between state Planning Minister Justin Madden and opposition counterpart Matthew Guy. Mr Madden was asked why he had approved the dangerous junction of stage 4C of Geelong’s bypass with Torquay Road only 157 metres south of a railway level crossing. Confusing 4C with 4B, he replied that it ran into the Princes Highway toward Colac. Mr Madden obviously had no grasp of a road that would adversely affect thousands of people despite approving it only four weeks earlier. Lee Gladwell Grovedale

LOCAL INSTALLATION & SERVICING


IN THE past week there was much discussion of what could be done to revitalise our central Geelong. As a city centre trader, I have known for years that it is slowly dying. There appears to be no incentive for shoppers to come into the city and, if they do, to get out of Westfield and back to street traders. If we can’t get the shoppers into the heart of Geelong why would business owners want to pay the high rents to be there? Council seems too paralysed to do anything except plant trees and work on beautification. While Labor Member for Geelong Ian Tresize has been presiding over our electorate since 1999, he has done nothing to make a difference. If we are going to see Moorabool Street come alive again we need our State Government candidate to have a clear vision of what our town can be. He needs to work harder for our region instead of sitting in a safe seat and taking things for granted. Mick Alexander Grovedale

Liberal with help I THANK Liberal candidate for Geelong Alastair Thomson for his recent election pledge to Barwon Rowing Club of $250,000 for our shed re-building project. This would go a long way to completing the fit out upstairs and allowing us not only to continue our rowing activities but to help the community via the support of local regattas, United Way Head of the River and learnto-row programs. This is an opportunity to create a Geelong landmark in a prominent position on the banks of the Barwon River near the Morrabool Street bridge. On the other hand, without support such as Mr Thomson’s pledge the clubhouse will not progress from being a shell. Stuart Peace Ocean Grove

A Pulse of bias Rising prices: Politicians must act on housing affordability, according to builders.

‘Building’ prices IS ANYBODY listening? The housing affordability crisis must be addressed now. Over the past 15 years Geelong’s median house price has jumped from $93,000 to $337,500, up 263 per cent. Stamp duty now stands at $13,245, or 3.9 per cent of the house cost. In less than two decades Victoria has managed to place home ownership beyond the reach of ordinary people. We deserve to be told by our politicians about their plans to deal with Victoria’s housing affordability crisis. Master Builders Association has launched a campaign calling for such a response. Readers should write to their local politician and spread the word. The community wants action on our diminishing housing choices. Readers can join our campaign at www.isanybodylistening.com.au. Brian Welch Master Builders Association of Victoria executive director

I LISTENED to community radio station 94.7FM The Pulse to hear a political debate with announcer Denis Scanlon. Never again. Most candidates were in attendance but one received more positive attention than the others. It is without prejudice that I say the Liberal candidate received less attention than his Labor counterpart. All I want during these types of interviews during an election campaign is a fair go for all - even the Greens. At least I know for which party the announcer will vote. Bob Dare Portarlington

THE Independent’s November 30 story about Laurel Ling and Anam Cara House highlighted what an important addition it is to resources available in this community. The writer referred to the care provided to patients by Geelong Hospice Care Association prior to its takeover by Barwon Health in 2000 as a “Rolls Royce” service for the very few who could afford it. This statement was half right. It was a Rolls Royce service delivered to people who wished to die in their own home and delivered by a dedicated staff of whom Laurel Ling was a valued member but the service did not depend on the patients’ ability to pay - it was free. It was strongly supported by the Geelong community and received some substantial bequests from grateful families, enabling the service to be offered free of charge to those who needed it.

SHELL ECOVOLUNTEERS CLIMATE CHANGE FORUM CALLS FOR LOCAL ACTION At the recent Shell EcoVolunteers climate change forum, concerned local experts and community members made a call for community, industry and governments in the Geelong region to work together to plan for adapting to climate change. At the forum, which was opened by Mr Richard Marles MP, Federal Member for Corio, delegates heard local “climate proofing” case studies and agreed priorities for action including: Developing a community-based climate proofing centre for learning; Valuing water through a range of government and community-based actions including greater rainfall and storm water capture and waste water re-treatment; and, Supporting education on climate change adaptation and the skills necessary to adapt. Shell Geelong Refinery General Manager, Mark Schubert, said the forum demonstrated that Geelong was leading the way with positive examples of people and organisations trying to reduce their own CO2 emissions and helping others to do the same.

letters House heroes THE Independent’s November 5 story headlined ‘The house heroine’ contained some inaccuracies regarding the delivery of palliative care in Geelong. For 20 years Geelong Hospice Care provided high-quality palliative care to people in their homes with structured visits and response to 24-hour emergency calls at no cost. Barwon Health then took over delivery of the service and increased the area of delivery. It is a quality service of excellence. Anam Cara House Geelong is a homelike environment providing a day hospice, over-night respite and end-of-life care for people with life-limiting illnesses. These supports are provided at no cost to the family or guests. The real heroes of Anam Cara House Geelong are the volunteers, the families and our guests.

Pike on consultation

FANCY Health Minister Bronwyn Pike calling her political opponent in Melbourne a hypocrite. This was the same Ms Pike of the Brumby Government who promised Geelong residents would decide whether they received fluoride in their water. It was the same Ms Pike who said nothing, along with local MPs Michael Crutchfield, Lisa Neville and Ian Trezise, when the Government broke its promise and forced fluoridation on us without asking. Have our MPs offered any support for the numerous individuals suffering nasty side effects from having to consume chemically fluoridated water? I have met many of these sufferers. It is heartening that at this month’s election there are independents standing in THE FLUORIDE issue in Victoria is more South Barwon and Bellarine who support indicative of the type of politics Victorians the community voice on major issues.

DLP alternative

485507-RMB40-10

The DLP stands for the phasing out poker machines, which are impoverishing many citizens and leading to family breakdowns and even suicide. All pokie venues should be required to inform patrons they are extremely unlikely to win and discourage them from gambling while consuming alcohol. After current pokie licences expire in 2022, pokies should be phased out entirely. The DLP would restrict the sale of spray cans of paint and wide-nibbed felt pens to registered artists only. The DLP would reverse the Brumby Government’s overriding of local opinion and councils in the planning process and would reform Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. The DLP will release other policies including exciting public transport initiatives as the campaign progresses. Peter Kavanagh Member for Western Victoria

Vote independent MY ASSOCIATION with Jan Juc and the region goes back to 1973 and I’m standing as an independent in South Barwon over the public-servant, do-nothing mentality of Labor’s ministers and its do-nothing agencies like WorkSafe. I worked for a company where bullying was common. There were many incidents and victims but WorkSafe, without proper investigation, was happy to find no bullying on the basis of its meeting with a director who had been told of bullying but who had not acted. Aged care also concerns me. Victoria must pass laws requiring that aged care facilities not leave residents with dementia unattended in day rooms. Regarding the Princes Freeway, how many of us have received fines after driving sensibly in the flow of the traffic? Keep the speed cameras but allow drivers leeway of up to 8km/h above the 100km/h limit. I’m also concerned about our nation being bought up by foreign nations. All men and women are equal but Australians must protect their land. The major parties must stop foreign nationals from buying up our farms and limit house ownership to Australian citizens. I will give my second preference to the Liberals and third to the Greens. John Dobinson North Balwyn

Spinning into a dangerous summer THE RETURN of seasonal rains in 2010 have produced excellent crops and an abundance of growth in pastures and the under-storey of our forests, all pointing toward a particularly dangerous fire season. In recent weeks we have been subjected to State Government media releases asking us to be fire-ready, which is to be commended but, remembering Black Saturday and the recommendations of the Royal Commission, we should all ask: • Are you, State Government, fire-ready and how much preparation have you undertaken to protect communities adjacent to or within your forests and parks?; • What fuel reduction burn-

Hot questison: Has State Government carried out adequate fire prevention works, a reader asks. ing or clearing has been done in the areas surrounding these communities, of which Victoria has many, particularly along the south-west coast?; • What strategic fire breaks have been planned and/or installed where people may be

vulnerable?; • How many safe places have been identified or built where people may gather and be safe should fire occur on really bad days?; • Have forest roads been adequately maintained or upgraded allowing access to the forests and parks for fire fighting vehicles and equipment?; and • What changes have been made to management practices between the responsible departments to ensure better and faster responses will be in place? In the interests of public safety, these questions require answers, Premier John Brumby, not more spin. Richard S de Fegely Point Lonsdale

BUSHFIRE preparedness is vital but let’s not be fooled by Labor’s slick mail-outs and exorbitant TV advertising campaign, funded of course by the taxpayer. Not only does it smack of political opportunism, it characterises a Premier desperate to win at any cost. The sad fact is that over the past 11 years successive state Labor Governments have ignored the warnings of many bushfire inquires. Labor has been warned time again about the critical steps needed to reduce fire risks but calls to increase fuel reduction burns, to improve buffers between private and public interface land and to permit landholders to remove vegetation in high-risk areas have fallen on deaf ears. The CFA and councils have been hampered in developing adequate roadside firebreaks. Crown land weed and vermin management is

poorly managed and where is the action to address onerous laws preventing removal of high-fire-risk vegetation? After years of pleas to replace the fire service levy with a more-equitable funding model, Labor did a last-minute patch-up job. The coalition, on the other hand, has supported all the Royal Commission bushfire inquiry recommendations and is committed to replacing the levy with an alternate model that is fair and equitable . The coalition has also announced a CFA funding commitment supporting volunteers, not just fire sheds. There is a distinct difference between Labor’s cheap tricks and hollow promises and the coalition, led by Ted Baillieu and committed to making Victoria fire safe and to supporting the communities and CFA volunteers of Victoria.

again from scratch, we had that firstimpressions pressure on us. In Australia people knew us.” But the band had also struggled to fit into the Australian music scene. “When we first came out with first EP people where like ‘What’s this? This is weird’,” Shannon said. “We’re different musically and don’t fit in anywhere. “We struggled with that for a while. “People didn’t know where to put us and we ended up with a few strange support acts but now more and more we’re paving our own identity.” Shannon said The Jezabels was now playing its moody yet epic songs in sell-out shows all across the country. “We just released tickets for a third show in Melbourne for this tour, it’s so good,” she laughed. “I often need to pinch myself.” Last month The Jezabels delivered new EP Dark Storm, which hit number on an iTunes album chart. The album is the band’s third and final release in a trilogy of EPs that began with 2009’s The Man Is Dead. Shannon said Geelong should expect songs from the band’s latest album, Dark Storm, plus “re-hashed oldies”. “This tour is exciting because we can play whatever we want at our own shows,” she said. “We’ll be going all out.” The Jezabels will be at Bended Elbow on November 25 and at Lorne’s Falls Festival.

THE FARNHAM STORY Y $57.50 MEAL & SHOW $28 SHOW ONLY

BY ERIN PEARSON FEW bands have made more of the past 12 months than Sydney quartet The Jezabels. The band’s four degree-level musicians – vocalist Hayley Mary, guitarist Sam Lockwood, drummer Nik Kaloper and keyboard player Heather Shannon – have shot to international stardom after forming just three years ago in a Sydney café. The Jezabels never looked back after their first taste of success in a 2007 Sydney University Music competition, which has previously unveiled talent including Powderfinger, Cloud Control and The Vines. Shannon said a recent “whirlwind” tour across Canada and America had taught the band a lot about life in the music industry. “It was pretty amazing over there and we were pretty blown away because none of us had really been over to that part of the world,” she said. “We learned a lot about touring and how hard it can be. “We did six shows in two days while in America – it was insane – and in Canada we did five consecutive shows in eight days when there was at least 10 hours travelling between each venue.” Shannon said the band had to work hard to earn its fans. “Going overseas we were starting

ew joys are greater than dancing in the open air while watching the sun set across Corio Bay on Geelong’s premier party boat. With full-catered dining and a bar, Hygeia on the Bay offers a floating function that guests are unlikely to forget. Hygeia is perfect for corporate functions, weddings, anniversaries, special birthdays or even a hen’s or buck’s night. The all-weather vessel includes a cocktail bar and a commercial gallery that can cater for up to 70 guests. Hygeia also hosts numerous Christmas parties and a New Year’s Eve function under fireworks. The boat’s interior contains stylish polished timber, brass and red velour fittings to enhance the backdrop of Geelong’s spectacular waterfront.

After entertaining Geelong partygoers for 23 years, the crew has developed an enviable reputation for providing functions with a difference. New Year’s Eve this year will feature four hours cruising the bay. At a cost of $130 guests will be entertained with a DJ on the top deck while enjoying an open-bar including daiquiris, delicious gourmet finger food and an unbeatable view of New Year’s Eve fireworks.

Back to school: Steve Singline with some of the works set to feature in 8 Degrees. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 56872 peer support and encouragement was great, everyone had their own little projects going on. “Everyone’s work is very diverse, from bronze sculptures and large works on paper to digital photography and multi-media works as well. “Everyone was really committed.” Singline encouraged patrons to inspect the exhibition, 8 Degrees. “I think it’s a unique opportunity to experience where emerging artists in Geelong are heading and the results of quite disciplined and rigorous endeavor,” he said. “We all have a commitment to working in the studio and produc-

Measuring success of weight loss re you like so many who try so hard to lose weight? You exercise, you diet, you do what they all tell you to do to lose weight and just can’t? Leading into the warmer months – not that we have seen so much of them yet – you might be considering what you need to do to shape up for summer and maybe drop a couple of kilos. If you want to do this then you are not alone. Every year around this time as the weather heats up and we start to shed our layers of clothes the need to disguise the little winter bulge becomes apparent. Then we go mad dieting, exercising, detoxing, often in a futile effort to feel better in our clothes. This is when we become our own worst enemy and experience

A

FIT AND HEALTHY WITH SAM JONES feelings of self-defeat when it takes longer than expected. However succeeding is very simple. Feeling better and looking better in our clothes and the words “weight loss� are, in my eyes, enemies. I believe that weight loss is the easiest thing to market in the world. Everyone has scales at home and always seems to jump on them when feeling the worst,

which leads to a negative selfimage and associates weight loss with negativity. I believe that to lose weight we need to set ourselves up for success. We need to measure how we feel in our clothes because centimetres lost are the true reflection of the effort you are putting in. Your clothes will often start falling off before you see the movement on the scales. So next time you set a weight loss goal, reassess and make it a feel-better-in-my-jeans goal.

Jenny Kirk before and after she joined The Weight Works. succumbing to stress. I may not have quite reached my goal of 10kg but I’m well on the way and feel really confident I will reach that target in the near future. I now find that if I do gain a little bit of weight back I can manage to get it off again quite quickly. Following The Weight Works program has definitely restored my metabolism to what it should be and has inspired me to exercise regularly. The key to The Weight Works’ program is that it is not a fad diet, it’s a lifestyle choice – one that I will follow for years to come while still enjoying life!! To learn how to make your own great lifestyle choice, join The Weight Works by phoning: Geelong West, 5221 2333; Leopold, 5250 1015; Norlane, 5275 0971; or go to www.theweightworks.com.au.

In September, 2009, I went on a big family adventure to America. I looked at some of the photos we took and I thought to myself that the background scenery was fantastic but with me in the foreground the view was definitely spoilt! Over the previous five years I had gained about 10kg and moved up in sizes progressively from a 10 to14, with my clothes becoming increasingly tight. I heard about The Weight Works from a friend who had been following the program. It looked like the program for me. I had tried carb-free diets but each time I finished one I would progressively put the weight back on, plus more. My goal for 2010 was to lose 10kg. I purchased The Weight Works’ kit online because I live in Melbourne. I have since lost 7.5kg and around 36cm off my body measurements and feel great! The best part is that I did not have to give up the things I love, such as the odd sweet thing – or two – and my glass of wine. The Weight Works’ Mandy Fisher has been extremely supportive following the program via email and phone calls. Each week I email Mandy my chart and she emails me back with her comments on how I could improve the next week’s food consumption choices. There were a few times when I lost focus due to gaining a bit of weight back after attending functions at which I couldn’t control my food choices or just through living life in general. Mandy was extremely supportive during this time and constantly encouraged me to refocus without

New administration course T he Gordon is offering an exciting new course for prospective students looking for a change of direction and a challenge. Certificate III in Business Administration (Medical) will commence in Geelong for the first time during semester one in 2011. The Gordon’s Skills Centre manager John Flett said the course was unique. “I don’t believe it has been offered in this format before,” he says. “Certainly it is different from what I know our competition is offering.” The administration course targets people wanting to work as a receptionist or in an office role in a medical practice for a doctor, a dentist, a physiotherapist or even a naturopath. The course can provide a pathway to even higher qualifications in business administration, bookkeeping and general management. It can also be completed as a stand-alone qualifi-

cation but The Gordon encourages completing a dual qualification with the addition of five more administration units. Current units in the program cover medical terminology, patient privacy and confidentiality, stock control, practice operations and general administration units, including the MS Office suite and managing meetings and appointments. The course is six months full-time, runs four days per week and hours are well-suited to people with school-age children. “Generally-speaking, our administration courses are often made up of women who want to return to work,” John says. “So we have a really supportive environment to assist our students.” For more information, go to www.thegordon.edu.au or phone 5225 0800 for course enquiries.

he Gordon can provide the right skills to set up businesses for success in the workplace. Creative Business program manager Penny Stevens says The Gordon has heard “quite a number of success stories” from former students about jobs and fulfilling career paths. The Gordon’s courses can cover management, human resource training, project management and training assessment. “We deal with all people from entry level through to experienced managers who come to us for a diploma in management or human resources,” Penny says. The Gordon is encouraging people who are either already work or wish to seek employment in commercial industries to sign up to new courses. “What we offer is encouraging people in their development and we recognise a lot of skills in the workplace that they have without realising it,” Penny says. “What we deliver is what skills people can do in the workplace and not do a lot of theoretical stuff.”

Enrol now to build future P laces for The Gordon’s preapprenticeship courses are now available for 2011. The Gordon’s Ian Deller says students interested in painting and decorating, plastering, cabinet making and bricklaying should apply now. “Here at The Gordon we have state-of-the-art training facilities and all our teachers are trade qualified. “We want to make sure all students who complete a pre-apprenticeship course at The Gordon enter the field with knowledge and expe-

rience in the trade they choose.” Ian says job opportunities in these trades are high. “The Geelong and surrounding areas have a shortage of qualified people in painting and decorating, plastering, cabinet making and bricklaying so we are always getting employers ringing us up and looking for apprentices. “There are jobs out there for those trades and prospective students can take advantage of this and get their career on track.” A Gordon TAFE pre-apprenticeship takes six months off an

apprenticeship and time off trade schooling for all graduates. “This gets people job ready,” Ian says. “Instead of an employer spending a lot of time with people to get them up and going, when they get pre-apprenticeship trained students they get someone who knows a little bit about what they’re doing. Prospective students can phone The Gordon’s skills centre on 5225 0500 or visit www.gordontafe.edu.au.

Fashion a career at Gordon eelong Gordon TAFE offers a range of courses to suit budding clothing designers, fashionistas and future milliners. Gordon fashion program manager Wendy Wall says full-time, part-time and short courses cater for every age and skill level. “We offer a three year full time advanced diploma in fashion design and technology,” Wendy says. “This course covers fashion indepth, including pattern making,

G

design, construction, marketing and global operations.” Gordon also has a strong reputation in the fashion industry and students have a high success rate of finding employment. “Gordon fashion students have a high success rate of finding employment after completing the advanced diploma,” Wendy says. “Some of our students come in with barely any skills and they progress to being able to design and construct beautiful garments,

and get positions in both small and large enterprises or start their own business.” Wendy encourages mums or mature aged students to try a popular fashion short course, or oneday-a-week course in fashion design or millinery. “If you have a creative streak and are keen to be in the fun, vibrant fashion industry, or even if you just want to try something new, our fashion courses have something for everyone.”

Headstart with skills training tudents at The Gordon’s Technical Education Centre can get a head start in their chosen trade while still completing secondary school. The Gordon’s Michael Metzger says students receive hands-on experience through accessible and easy to understand school based apprenticeships, certificates II and III and VCAL opportunities in many fields. “We are delivering something accessible for students, making

the complicated easy. “Many students come to us because they have been disengaged from traditional education, we give them an opened-ended, problem-based program that teaches them how to learn. “Whether students are looking to enrol in bricklaying, cabinet making, carpentry, electrotechnology, fashion, hairdressing, hospitality, landscaping, plumbing and more, The Gordon has a school- based program.

“We give them the skills to discover new ways of doing things, to be adaptive and resourceful.” Michael says new students will also be able to work in a brand new $6 million building to be completed by 2012, dedicated to delivering their project applied learning model. Enrolments for 2011 are now open, with more information prospective students available by phoning 5246 6350 or visiting www.gtec.edu.au.

Competent French crossover BY ERIC BLAIR enault sees the Koleos as being an offroader, but most would regard it as a competent crossover rather than a true off-roader. There may be a translation problem here, as Europeans sometimes call any vehicle that goes off sealed surfaces an off-roader. This isn’t Renault’s first crossover, that honour goes to the RX4 version of the Renault Scenic that was sold in Australia in the early 2000s. But that was a people mover, albeit one with drive to all four wheels and additional ground clearance, whereas the Koleos is more of your traditional SUV in its lines. But it’s far from being the boxy, macho type of machine usually associated with the 4WD/SUV vehicle. Not for the French designers – something as boring as that. No, the Koleos has a futuristic shape that draws interested looks from all directions when you take it onto the road. And the inside is just as spectacular in its styling. It looks good in photographs, but even better in the metal and plastic. May we suggest a trip to your local Renault dealer to get a full visual impression of this fascinating SUV. The all-wheel-drive system was developed in conjunction with Renault’s ally Nissan. Nissan has had decades of experi-

ence in this field and there’s a fair big of Nissan Dualis and X-Trail in the Koleos. Renault Australia ticked lots of boxes when it did the importation deal with head office in France (though the vehicle is built in South Korea, not France). Koleos comes with a keyless card and start-button function, electronic child locks, an automatic handbrake, dual-zone air conditioning, cruise control, and automatic headlamps and windscreen wipers. The Dynamique variant has a single CD/AM-FM audio system and the Privilege has a Bose audio with seven speakers and subwoofer. Both models have an auxiliary input jack for MP3 / iPod players. The rear tailgate is a clever split design that lets you open only the upper portion when in crowded shopping centre carparks. The lower part hinges to a horizontal surface that’s ideal for sitting on when at kids’ sporting events and the like. Though the boot is relatively large from front to rear it’s a fair way off the ground so it’s not always easy to load heavy items. The sleek slope of the roof limits the size of boxy items if the rear seats are in use, so can’t be folded down. On the positive side, the 66/34 split rear seat gives you a number of choices. – To page 94

The post 2005 Rio are a big advance on styling, build quality and onroad dynamics. if your used car budget can cope with the price. Transmission options are fivespeed manual and four-speed automatic. The automatic takes the edge of what performance the engine does deliver but works pretty well for what it is. It’s smooth enough and obviously makes life simpler in the suburbs, the natural habitat of a vehicle like this. The engine should fire up within a second or so of the key being turned, even when it’s cold. As soon as it starts it should settle into a steady idle. Acceleration should occur almost at the moment the pedal is pushed. Any hesitation should be treated with suspicion. There should be no smoke from the exhaust pipe even if the engine is worked hard. Letting it idle for about a minute, then flooring the throttle in a quick takeoff will quickly let you spot it. A manual gearbox should be moderately light in its action and not crunch on any of the downchanges, no matter how fast they are made. The third to second gearchange is usually the first to give trouble. If the automatic transmission is slow at picking up a drive gear from Park or Neutral it may be because it’s due for a major overhaul. Check the brakes pull the Rio up squarely and that ABS, if fitted, operates when you push the pedal hard. Poorly repaired crash damage will show as paint which doesn’t match from panel to panel; and/or a ripply finish in a panel. Check for tiny specks of paint on non-painted parts such as glass and badges. Check the interior and boot for signs of advanced wear or mistreatment. In particular, check for rips in the fabrics, or parts that are loose.

47 YEARS CONTINUOUS TRADING IN GEELONG : RACV

The Independent, Friday November 19, 2010

BY ERIC BLAIR ia Rio is a small-medium Korean machine built to quite a good standard and with a reputation for toughness that stands it in a good position on our used car market. The Rio started off relatively modestly in the local sales race, but has picked up steadily since the all-new model of August 2005 arrived. This sales improvement is chiefly due to the 2005 Rio having a more mainstream appearance than the previous models. Not only are these post2005 models a big advance in the styling department, but also their onroad dynamics and build quality improved at the same time. You can buy a Kia Rio as either a four-door sedan or a five-door hatchback. Interestingly, the current models are smaller on the outside than the pre2005 versions, but provide more interior space thanks to some clever design work. Though the 2005 Rios are a real improvement in their handling and feel, they are still not really aimed at the keen driver. A decent set of tyres can work wonders for Rios, talk to a tyre expert to get some ideas if you’re on a tight motoring budget but would like a car that feels more pleasant on the road. The bodies are generally assembled to a higher standard than the interiors, though we do see the occasional rough one, more so in older cars than recent examples. The experienced home mechanic can do a fair bit on this car. Underbonnet access is good and the Rio doesn’t attempt to break any new ground in technology. A workshop manual at your elbow is a low-cost investment that can save you lots of hassles. Rios in Australia are powered by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine in the pre-2005 variants. If used no more than moderately it will sound and feel fine, drive it hard and it gets thrashy. The performance of the engine is generally fine in this relatively light car. But it can struggle a bit on hills, so it’s smart to find a hilly area to do some of your pre-purchase road testing. The newer Rios have a more modern 1.6 litre four-cylinder engine that’s significantly more powerful, smoother and more refined at the same time. This is definitely the one to aim for

MOTORCYCLISTS WE RIDE. WE VOTE.

We thank Michael CrutchďŹ eld, Member for South Barwon for his ongoing support of local sporting clubs and in particular the motorcycling community. The McAdam Park facility provides enthusiasts of all ages with a safe and legal venue for recreational motorcycling in the Greater Geelong region. Ask your candidates if they support motorcycling at McAdam Park.

The French crossover F

uel economy from the diesel is pretty good. The 2.0-litre unit will generally use about seven to eight litres per hundred kilometres in the country and about eight to ten litres when used in the suburban maelstrom. On the road this is a very quiet car when used on smooth roads and doesn’t become objectionably louder even on Australia’s notorious coarse-chip surfaces. It is well insulated from road noise and mechanical noise is heavily muffled. However, one stretch of country road brought up a slight booming of the type that used to plague station wagons, but which is a rarity these days. Handling is pretty good for a vehicle of this type. The high centre of gravity takes away any sporting pretensions, but the Koleos turns in promptly and holds the road well. Renault has long been a leader in the safety stakes and Koleos has ESP and ABS as standard. The car boasts a five-star Euro NCAP crash test result, using dual front, dual side and curtain airbags. Koleos has good ground clearance and approach and departure angles to allow safety to a higher stan-
