Region to get a kick out of festival with plenty of Heart Cops set to THE ROUND ball will feature during the heart of the AFL season with the opening leg of a community football festival in Geelong next month. A-League football’s newest team, Melbourne Heart, will visit the region to run a series of school and club clinics culminating in a friendly match against Victorian champion league side Wimmera South Coast Eagles at Elcho Park. The series of events, part of a Westpac Community Football Festival, will run from June 15 to 17 as Melbourne Heart tries to pump up local support. Well-known local football identity and Melbourne Heart football operations manager John Didulica helped Socceroo Kristian Sarkies launch the festival at Kardinia International College this week. Melbourne Heart has signed a number of former internationals, including Geelong’s Josip Skoko, who will impart their knowledge to the Geelong football community. A coach-the-coach program will involve Heart head coach John van‘t Schip and assistants Jesper Olsen and Ante Milicic hosting a seminar educating local club coaches on the latest tactical and technical innovations in the game. Heart chief executive officer Scott Munn noted that Geelong had produced some of Australia’s leading football talents, such as Mathew Spiranovic, Joey Didulica and Skoko. The festival was another way of furthering the cause of football and inspiring the next international to come from the region, Mr Munn said.

BY ALEX DE VOS POLICE have identified a driver who assaulted a cyclist on Torquay Road last Sunday, leaving him with facial injuries. Constable Glen Kelly said the man, aged in his 40s, was spotted on surveillance footage entering the Grovedale Hotel’s drivethrough bottle shop. The man was known to hotel staff. Const Kelly was confident police would arrest the Grovedale resident next week. “We urge him to come forward before we go to him. “It’s a very serious offence and it’s something that’s not going to go away - we know who he is.” Const Kelly said David Rourke, 46, was riding his bike south on Torquay Road near Reserve Road about 10.30am when the motorist cut him off. Police alleged the cyclist verbally abused the motorist and gave him the finger. Const Kelly said the driver allegedly pulled over, ran across the road and punched the victim in the face. Mr Rourke was undergoing surgery when the paper went to press on Wednesday night.

Election road warfare BY KIM WATERS DUPLICATION of the Princes Highway between Winchelsea and Colac has become a political football, with both sides of federal parliament accusing each other of failing to fund the project. The Labor Government this week accused Liberal Corangamite candidate Sarah Henderson of “abandoning” a preelection promise to duplicate the stretch of highway. But Ms Henderson said the

attack demonstrated how Labor was desperate to mislead voters in its bid to hold the marginal seat. Labor Transport Minister Anthony Albanese said shadow finance minister Andrew Robb released documents this week confirming the Liberals had yet to commit funding for the duplication. Mr Albanese said the document proved the party had “discontinued” its interest in the highway. He accused Ms Henderson of a

“sham” interest in the road. Mr Albanese said the Liberals’ “repeated failure to put their money where their mouth is” was further proof that “Phoney Tony’s gospel truth” on road funding was unbelievable. “For our part, the Rudd Labor Government pledged $110 million to duplicate the road between Waurn Ponds and Winchelsea – a commitment that’s being matched dollar for dollar by the Brumby Labor Government.”

Ms Hendersen hit back, accusing Mr Albanese of “a complete fabrication”. “The Coalition has not yet made all of its road funding announcements,” she said. “As the Liberal candidate for Corangamite, I am continuing to work very hard and continuing to fight tooth and nail for funding for the duplication of the Princes Highway between Winchlesea and Colac.” Ms Henderson said Mr

Albanese had launched a “desperate attempt” to mislead voters. “The story here is that the Rudd Government has failed to fund the duplication of this road and that is a disgrace.” Mr Robb released a statement to the Independent saying the proposed duplication was still “under serious consideration”. “Mr Albanese has issued a number of misleading and disingenuous media statements making completely false allegations

regarding supposed Coalition commitments,” Mr Robb said. “This worthy project, like many across the country, is still under serious consideration by the Coalition against the backdrop of the Rudd Labor Government’s billions of dollars of waste and mismanagement, continued reckless spending and massive debt.” Labor holds Corangamite with a margin of less than one per cent after winning the seat from the Liberals at the 2007 election.

BY ALEX DE VOS A 28-YEAR-OLD father who repeatedly bashed a Torquay milkbar operator for serving him soggy salad rolls and cold pastries has avoided jail time. Belmont’s Anthony Tancredi pleaded guilty in Geelong Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday to a charge of recklessly causing injury. Police prosecutor Kerrie Moroney told the court that on February 3 Tancredi attended the Bell Street milkbar to purchase three salad rolls and three sausage rolls. Senior Constable Moroney said Tancredi then paid for the rolls and left the milkbar. He later returned and demanded a refund because the salad rolls were soggy and the sausage rolls were cold. Snr Const Moroney said a heated dispute took place before the defendant threw one of the salad rolls at the victim. Tancredi proceeded to knock over some shelves of chocolates before grabbing the victim and repeatedly punching him in the face. The victim suffered a black eye, a cut and damage to his teeth. Tancredi, who has a history of criminal damage and driving offences, was convicted and fined $1750. Magistrate Jon Klestadt also ordered him to pay the victim’s $154 dentist bill. In sentencing, Mr Klestadt told the court Tancredi’s record was “clearly appalling”. “Violence is never an accepted way to resolve a problem,” he said. “By engaging in violence you’re ignoring the rights and once violence begins no one is in control. “I accept there was a dispute and this wasn’t random but you were not entitled to behave that way. “I’ve given weight to your guilty plea – if you didn’t plead guilty you would’ve been sentenced to jail.”

200 local artists contribute to ‘rare’ show of artistry MORE THAN 200 Geelong region artists and craftspeople are represented in a rare exhibition at the city’s National Wool Museum. Titled Christmas Creations for Mr Johnston – by Geelong Artisans, the exhibition consists of exquisite hand-made decorations for a popular 2009 Christmas display at Melbourne’s prestigious Johnston Collection. The late antique dealer and collector William Johnston assembled an astonishing array of Georgian, Regency and Louis XV fine and decorative arts and antiquities. More than 200 artists from nine Geelong organisations provided the decorations for last year’s annual Christmas at the Johnston Collection exhibition. Tree and table decorations, porcelain presents, colourful quilts, handcrafted festive food and a 1.5m high glass Christmas tree are some of the highlights of the Geelong exhibition. Geelong council heritage portfolio holder Cameron Granger said the exhibition highlighted Geelong’s rich pool of artistic talent. “Rarely do we get the opportunity to see so many works by Geelong artists and craftspeople in the one location,� Cr Granger said. The exhibition will be on display from Saturday until August 29.

Geezer wins A SELF-described “old geezer� from Corio plans to buy a new house after winning division one in Saturday night’s TattsLotto draw. A TattsLotto spokesperson said the man, who was “grinning from ear to ear� after hearing about his win, also planned to share some of the $500,000 windfall with his children.

Fatal figures GEELONG has the fourth worst record in the state for fatal car crashes that either kill or seriously injure their victims. Victoria Police has released figures showing 3.11 people out of every 1000 people in the city were either killed or seriously injured in crashes last year, with Melbourne leading the rate at 4.57.

MP Neville faces new calls to quit ministry BELLARINE MP Lisa Neville has again come under renewed pressure to resign as she fights two scathing reports of her department’s failings. An Ombudsman’s report found that her Department of Human Services had failed to provide a secure and safe environment for children in the out-ofhome care system. An Opposition Freedom of Information investigation also revealed that 63 out of 553 children in care in the Barwon South West region had experienced multiple placements, creating further instability in their lives. The Ombudsman’s investigation found numerous instances of children sexually assaulted, raped, seriously

in brief

injured, involved in prostitution and exposed to drugs. “The sexual exploitation of young people in the system has been identified as a significant issue, with incident reports identifying a group of children involved in prostitution and sexual exploitation,� the report said. The report found that departmental process were not followed in many instances, including the screening of carers - the same failing identified in an earlier Ombudsman’s investigation. The department had also failed to implement recommendations made in a 2005 Ombudsman’s report. Opposition leader Ted Baillieu said State Government had ignored warn-

ings “for years�. “Vulnerable children in this government’s care have been abused, assaulted and exposed to drugs and prostitution,� he said. “Lisa Neville is really not up to it. She has had precious little impact on this portfolio and left vulnerable children unprotected in this state. “All we’ve had from Lisa Neville is denial and this report clearly states that the system is in crisis. “She should go – she should have gone a long time ago.� Ms Neville said the issues raised in the Ombudsman’s report had been rectified. The Government would implement

all but one of his recommendations, she said. “The report comes at a time when over 5000 children are being cared for by foster parents, extended families or in residential care every day,� Ms Neville said. “The Ombudsman recognises that overwhelmingly, children in kinship, foster and residential care in Victoria have benefited from this care.� Ms Neville said specialist training and higher reporting standards would be implemented. She announced an extra $4 million in support for foster parents and relatives to offset the cost of schooling for children in their care.

GEELONG’S council has ticked off on plans to spend $8 million redeveloping Drysdale’s Potato Shed. The redevelopment would include development of a new “multi-purpose� theatre space with 250 seats at the facility, which councillor Barbara Abley said was operating at close to capacity with 90,000 visitors a year.

Pipe progress GEELONG has moved a step closer to tapping into Melbourne’s water supply with a call for tenders to supply 56 kilometres of pipes, fittings and valves to connect the cities. Water Minister Tim Holding said the 800mm pipe from Melbourne’s Sugarloaf Reservoir would supply up to 16 billion litres each year by the end of 2011.

Motocross cash GEELONG councillors have rejected a motocross club’s request for $660,000 to set up shop on Barrabool’s McAdam Park. Councillors voted this week to instead give Geelong Motocross Club $10,000 to draw up a “more detailed proposal� for council to make a decision on the remainder of the funding request.

Fluoride votes ANTI-fluoridation campaigners plan to endorse candidates at the state election to force removal of fluoride from the region’s water supply. Lobby group Barwon Freedom from Fluoridation announced this week it would seek independent candidates willing to back the group when campaigning for local seats in the November election.

Military days A THREE-day celebration will mark the 150th anniversary of a “military presence� at Queenscliff’s Shortland Bluff to guard Port Phillip Bay’s entrance. The Defence Department said Queenscliff would host a series of events and activities from September 17 to 19 to “acknowledge the milestone�.

Woolies plan for golf site opposed BY KIM WATERS GEELONG councillors have opposed plans for a Woolworths hardware concept store at North Geelong. They voted to tell an advisory committee to state Planning Minister Justin Madden that they did not support a rezoning and permit application for the store on the former site of Geelong Golf Club. The Woolworths plan would leave inadequate space for site owner Links Living to deliver its promise of a nine-hole golf course on the land. Council said Mr Madden appointed the committee in response to a Woolworths request for “a coordinated and

timely process” for various building projects around Victoria. Mr Madden will have the final say on approval of all Woolworths’ permit applications. Cr Barbara Abley blasted Woolworths’ request to Mr Madden as “devious”. She called for a crackdown on big companies bypassing councils in planning processes. “Their whole notion of consultation needs to be exposed,” Cr Abley said. “I’m really angry. I have grave concerns about this.” Woolworths wants the 12.6ha site rezoned so it can develop approximately 5.1ha for the hardware store, a med-

ical centre, an office and two food and drink premises. The rest of the land would be reserved for “future development applications”. In 2006 council adopted a proposal from site owner Links Living to rezone the western part of the golf club land for a nine-hole course with 200 residential lots, 120 retirement units, wetlands, parklands, bike and pedestrian tracks. The new application included a revised plan for a four-hole course but council feared Links Living would never go ahead with the golf redevelopment. A report to council said “the ongoing presence of a golf course on the site was an integral part of the approval pack-

age and the Geelong community may now feel aggrieved that this part of the package is being removed”. Councillor Andrew Katos said the proposal was “nonsense”. “We’ve been asked to rezone five hectares of land and then told ‘Just trust us with the rest’,” Cr Katos said. “We’ve been asked to make this decision but the…agreement says it was to remain a golf course. “We shouldn’t be happy with this.” LinksLiving and Safeway did not return the Independent’s call for comment before the paper went to press.

Melbourne Heart’s Kristian Sarkies and Westpac’s Scott Blunden with the KIC students

GEELONG TO HOST WESTPAC FOOTBALL FESTIVAL OPENER tactical and technical innovations in the game. The inaugural Westpac Community Football Festival culminates in a friendly match between Heart and Victorian Champions League side Wimmera South Coast Eagles at Elcho Park, home of the North Geelong Warriors and former junior club of Heart signing Josip Skoko, on Thursday June 17. Heart Chief Executive Officer Scott Munn revealed the Club is excited to be bringing the Hyundai A-League to Geelong for an extended period. “The Geelong region has produced some of Australia’s leading football talents in recent times, such as the likes of Matthew Spiranovic, Joey Didulica and of course, Heart’s own Josip Skoko,” he said.

“Although we are in our infancy, the Club is steadfast in the belief that it bears a distinct responsibility to further the cause of football throughout the state and help inspire the next generation of Victorians. “And through our partnership with Westpac, the Club is delighted to extend a hand and support Geelong’s local football community.” Westpac’s Regional General Manager for Geelong, Scott Blunden said: “We are really excited to be able to help bring Melbourne Heart and elite football to the Geelong community. “One of the reasons Westpac partnered with the team is their focus on taking football to regional communities. The Geelong football festival will kick off of two months of fantastic regional football activity across Victoria.”

‘It’s going to be better but it’s going to take time’

Schools restructure defended BY ALEX DE VOS SCHOOL council representatives have defended a plan to restructure several Corio and Norlane schools against concerns the transition process will cause “angst” and “stress” among parents and students. Corio South Primary School president Ken McCarthy said the restructure, which would lead to state-of-the-art facilities spread out across five campuses, was a “fantastic” opportunity for Geelong’s northern suburbs. He said parents should have no concerns about the proposal but urged them to be patient. “It’s going to be better but it’s going to take time – we’re not dropping in a new school overnight,” Mr McCarthy said. The Independent reported last week that State Government planned to close Flinders Peak Secondary School in about six months then Norlane High and Corio South Primary School in 2012 and 2013 respectively.

another two years – it’s less disruptive for them.” Mr McCarthy believed the proposal would prevent local secondary students from enrolling in Geelong high schools. “The reason for this regeneration program is to keep kids in our area and they get the opportunity to go into brand new schools in our area.” Last week Corio councillor Kylie Fisher told the Independent the transition process would put families “under complete stress”. She said her two student sons were already considering seeking enrolments in the city rather than transferring between the schools set to close within three years. Cr Fisher, a Labor party member, said the Government’s “intent of positive educational outcomes” was not reflected in the plan’s likely impact on families in the northern suburbs. But Norlane High School president Merv Primmer said the project was an asset to the area. “People need to keep an open mind and see the value,” he said.

In letter to Environment Minister Gavin Jennings, Surf Coast Com-munity and Ratepayers Association president Spencer Leighton demanded State Government “consider disbanding Great Ocean Road Coast Committee”. Mr Leighton believed the committee had failed in its ability to successfully manage the coast. “Over the time of GORCC’s existence, we have seen many changes, some of which we have approved of

and some we haven’t,” Mr Leighton said. “While we haven’t any specific complaints about the way GORCC has managed the coast, we feel that the committee has not proved itself worthy to exist as a separate entity.” Mr Leighton pointed the finger at the committee’s alleged plans to build a bureaucracy in favour of managing the coast. “We believe that much of the money that GORCC has to spend on the coast is taken up with salaries for officers who, in our opinion, are unnecessary,” he said. Mr Leighton called on the Government to hand over coastal management to Surf Coast Shire.

“We feel that if GORCC was disbanded, that the Surf Coast council would do an equally good job for less money. “We feel this would more advantageous to everyone concerned.” Surf Coast Community and Ratepayers Association secretary Lyn Smith welcomed the bid. “If we had one person doing the whole lot, it might flow a bit better,” she said. “There is a great lack of the two (authorities) working together and it’s definitely worth looking at (a take over) to evaluate the savings and benefits.” The committee has also had funding problems delivering major projects such as redevelopment of

Torquay’s public caravan park and the town’s boat ramp. Last year the Independent revealed the committee, a State Government body, had begun drawing annual funding from ratepayers. The committee had previously relied on revenue from its Torquay and Lorne camping grounds. State Government rejected a 2007 council bid to take over the committee. A Department of Sustainability and Environment senior bureaucrat told councillors their takeover proposal was not “ justifiable or appropriate...at this time”. Committee chief executive officer David Clarke was reluctant to comment.

Stages of sale set to create home theatres in Geelong

Everything must go: Luke Gleeson and Ben Laden and Malcolm Sanders among some of the props up for sale at the Courthouse Arts Centre. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 47593

BY ALEX DE VOS LOCAL theatre buffs will be able to get their hands on pieces of stage memorabilia when Geelong’s Courthouse Art Centre sells its collection of props and costumes this weekend. A pair of 1930s antique chairs, locallydesigned costumes and giant puppets are among the quirky items up for grabs at the Sunday sale. Courthouse Arts Centre’s Malcolm Sanders said the sale would clear the floor for a $6.5 million redevelopment of Geelong’s premier youth complex. “At the moment we’ve got about 14 years worth of things,” Mr Sanders said. Mr Sanders said word of the clearance sale had sparked interest around town. “A few people have been saying they want to buy a few things and there are schools that are interested in the props.” Courthouse Art’s Ben Laden said proceeds from the sale would support the youth centre’s extensive range of programs. Mr Laden said the new complex would feature an art gallery, lifts, dressing rooms, a 150-seat theatre and recording and dance studios. “Young people are crying out for it,” he said. “Once it’s finished, it’s going to be an amazing complex.”

Trail cross fears BY KIM WATERS A SERIES of near-misses has sparked calls for a pedestrian crossing on the Bellarine Rail Trail at Drysdale, according to residents. Residents and horse riders believe the trail’s crossover on High Street needs flashing lights to prevent accidents. High Street’s Kylie Berry said hundreds of trail users crossed the busy street every weekend, narrowly avoiding traffic. “I’m just waiting for someone to be killed,” Ms Berry said. Drysdale Leopold Pony Club district commissioner Fiona Conroy said the crossover was a problem for riders. “A lot of pony club members use the trail and try to cross into our grounds,” Ms Conroy said.

Line on track to public path BY KIM WATERS A DISUSED rail line snaking through Geelong to Fyansford should become a path for pedestrians and cyclists, according to a Geelong councillor. Eddy Kontelj said State Government rail agency VicTrack should transfer ownership of the line to council. VicTrack had written to council saying the land was being prepared for sale because it had become surplus to the agency’s operations. “This is used as public land and it should remain as public land,� Cr Kontelj said. “It needs to be handed over to council.� The “eyesore� former rail line had become a threat to both pedestrians and vehicles forced to cross it, Cr Kontelj said. “It’s imperative that the

railway line between Church Street and Ballarat Road in particular is removed promptly to provide the community with a connection between a new sports and education precinct in Hamlyn Heights and the Hamlyn Heights reserve to avoid any potential occupation health and safety issues such as trips and falls. “This railway line now divides the new Western Heights College, the new community facilities and the Hamlyn Park Reserve and wellused Tom McKean Linear Park. Cr Kontelj said there was no reason why the removal of the railway line should be delayed any longer. “The line has no operational purpose and is surplus to State Government’s rail needs,� he said. VicTrack’s Jason Murray

said the agency was waiting on approval to declare the land surplus. “VicTrack has only in the last few days forwarded paperwork seeking the minister’s approval to declare the line south of Thompson Road surplus,� Mr Murray said. “VicTrack has no plans to sell or develop any part of the corridor - it’s not a priority for us. If council wants to buy it we’re happy to talk to them.� Mr Murray said VicTrack would “immediately� remove the rail from level crossings after the paperwork was approved. “At this stage VicTrack is not proposing to remove any of the other rail infrastructure. However, we’re waiting on a proposal from the Bellarine Peninsula Railway, who would like the rail.�

WHAT IS THE ROLE OF A SHIPPING AGENT? Our role is similar to that of a travel agent. We organise everything to do with getting a ship in and out of Geelong and act as a gobetween for the charterer and the owner of the ship. IN YOUR 20 YEARS IN THIS INDUSTRY, YOU MUST HAVE SEEN SOME SIGNIFICANT CHANGES? Technology is amazing now – 20 years ago ships communicated with a machine called a Telex and only a few had a fax machine. A lot of the grain carriers did not have a photocopier and had to use carbon paper! The introduction of computers and mobile phones has made communication so much easier. IN YOUR JOB YOU MUST HAVE TO COMMUNICATE WITH PEOPLE ALL OVER THE WORLD. HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH DIFFERENT TIME ZONES AND LANGUAGES? Fortunately, English is the language of the sea and therefore all of the ships I have dealt with have had crews who have been able to understand English, either spoken or written. To combat the time difference with the countries we have dealings with, we just need to be organised to ensure we allow ample time for a response. WHAT CHANGES HAVE YOU SEEN IN THE PORT OF GEELONG OVER THE YEARS? In my time in the industry, I have seen it go from being Government owned to privatised. This change in ownership has not impacted the running of the port which remains very good. The cost of bringing a ship in is actually less now than 20 years ago. There is now so much technology which allows all parties concerned to operate efficiently. WHAT IS THE BEST THING ABOUT YOUR JOB? A lot of crews coming into Geelong have not been to Australia before. Although they are only here for a relatively short time, a few days, we have so much to do with them that quite often they come in as strangers and leave as mates. It’s a unique job and after 20 years, I still love it!

LIVING in the lee of the Geelong cement works has never been a concern for Bill Caldow. The 30-year “cementies” veteran enjoyed being able to stroll to work from his Herne Hill home. It was the rest of the broad swathe of community involvements that required him to travel. Most of the miles on his cars were out to Bannockburn Football Club. “And the netball, don’t forget the netballers,” chimes in Bill. To someone who has trouble recalling birthdays, Bill’s ability to reel off other dates is nothing short of awesome. He can still recall all the premierships in which he has been involved. Bill’s love affair with football began in 1944 when, as a 15-year-old, he ran out for his first game with Cressy Football Club – sadly no longer in existence. Bannockburn itself was in recess when Bill arrived, then playing for Stonehaven. But his beloved Tigers are never in danger of biting the dust while Bill has breath. He still runs the Bannockburn past players association with another club stalwart and old mate, Laurie Davies. The pair organise fundraisers for items the club needs but can’t afford, like a $1500 line-marking machine. Bill says quietly that his father was a great footballer. However, Bill himself is a 300-gamer. The Bannockburn Football Club entry in John Stoward’s exhaustive history of football in the Geelong region, Cat Country, contains an acknowledgement to Bill. After all, he spent nine years as the under-18 coach, two coaching the under-17s, a decade as club secretary and 17 fruitful years as president. His long leadership at club level was transferred to Geelong and District Football league ranks, with Bill becoming a founding vice president when the three-tiered league system was introduced to the region in 1979. When it comes to longevity, Bill also outstrips most others in community service. He spent 21 years as a founding member of Bannockburn Lions Club. Clearly considering he wasn’t busy enough, Bill signed on as a Justice of the Peace in 1992 – and that was after several years as a commissioner for taking affidavits. Despite his 81 years, Bill says candidly: “You can’t think like a grandpa. You can’t live in the past. You’ve got to move with the times.” Once of his favourite sayings is: “Remember, you were that age once.” It’s why his fondest memories of his long football involvement lay with coaching the under-18s. “I really enjoyed seeing the young blokes come through and make something of themselves. You’ve got to be prepared to give people a go.” Bill declares he has always tried to learn from life’s experiences himself: “You never finish learning,” he says. It is a philosophy he and his sadly missed wife of 39 years, Lorraine, tried to impart to his two daughters and son. “There’s little more rewarding than seeing your kids go forward and live good lives,” he observes. And that’s another of his life lessons. Bill has received any number of awards and citations over the years but there is one he unwaveringly points to as his pride and joy – even more than the Australian Centenary Medal, Lions Club awards and football acknowledgements. It is his Golden Plains Shire Citizen of the Year award, which he received on Australia Day 2001. Perhaps it just made Bill feel like a true blue Aussie.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN THE DREAM of becoming a debutante became a reality for a group of people with disabilities at a presentation ball last week. The Starry Starry Night ball offered 14 couples the opportunity to shine as they were presented to Geelong Mayor John Mitchell at North Geelong’s Capri Receptions on Friday night. Karingal partnered with women’s service club Zonta Geelong to organise the ball. The couples included Karingal clients with staff members, family or friends acting as partners Karingal chief executive officer Daryl Starkey said participants enjoyed learnng dances, dressing up and their presentation to a room full of guests. “It was a fantastic success,” Mr Starkey said. “When Zonta first broached the idea with us, we spoke to clients and they were resoundingly positive about being involved.” Zonta Geelong president Jane Adornetto said the ball fitted in perfectly with the club mission to advance the status of women. Local entertainer Tim McCallum combined with band Cool Change to provide entertainment. A call for support in the Independent resulted in a flood of donated dresses, corsages provided from Belmont florist Bella Rose and hair and make up services. The Independent was a sponsor of the event.

buckets & bouquets BOUQUETS to a couple in Solar Drive, Whittington, who answered their door at 1am to let in my 16-year-old son to ring me after his phone went dead. The couple then waited outside until I arrived. Grateful Parent, Norlane BUCKETS to City of Greater Geelong for again failing to run an annual hard-rubbish collection. How about it, City of Greater Geelong? Win yourself some extra votes. Hopeful, Corio BOUQUETS to Lara Lake Primary School’s grades three and four and their teachers. As a parent of a student, I helped on an excursion and came away proud and impressed with all the students. They were all wellbehaved and received compliments from staff of the venues visited and the public. Sam, Lara BUCKETS to Maurice (Buckets and Bouquets, May 21). How dare you criticise obesity victims for taking up extra space at the football! Would you prefer they stay home and watch the game on TV, becoming fatter still? What about people with bad breath? Should they stop breathing in crowds? Full Figure, Highton BOUQUETS to Geelong Football Club’s Matthew Scarlett for taking a couple of minutes to shake my son’s hand and say hello. He was no doubt trying to maintain a low profile at a Torquay service station but he made a little boy very happy. Grateful Father, Torquay BOUQUETS to Colleen and Christine for coming to my rescue in Michigan Avenue, Corio, and taking me to the vet when my dog was attacked. Bouquets also to Corio Vet for fantastic assistance. Vera, Corio BUCKETS to owners of four-wheeldrives and vans who use angle parking when parallel spaces are available. Exiting a parking space with a large vehicle parked on the left is almost impossible because oncoming traffic can’t be seen until the driver is practically on the roadway. Common courtesy is needed. Peugeot Owner, Waurn Ponds BOUQUETS to Bellarine Bayside for fantastic-looking post and rail fencing around an equally impressive refurbished playground at Portarlington’s foreshore park. Regardless of the vocal minority, most residents are extremely happy and satisfied with the job done. Happy Non-Camper, Portarlington BOUQUETS to Geelong Performing Arts Centre’s Linda. I mixed up my day and had tickets for a previous show. Linda was so courteous and friendly and managed to secure seats with some rearranging. My son and I are grateful and enjoyed the show. Confused, Grovedale BOUQUETS to the person who handed my lost handbag to the staff on duty at Deakin University on May 6, which was graduation day. Pensioner, Grovedale

letters Dementia on tap I WRITE regarding Alex De Vos’s story headlined ‘Geelong worst for dementia’ in last week’s Independent and statements at www.fluoridedebate.com. Brain Research reported: “In 1998 researchers recently expressed surprise that low doses of sodium fluoride, equivalent to 1ppm of fluoridated water, were found to cause brain damage similar to that in sufferers of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia and that low doses of aluminium fluoride, of .5 ppm, resulted in double the amount of aluminium found in the brain compared to a dosage of 50ppm of aluminium without fluoride.” Science News reported: “In 1987 Water with 1ppm of fluoride frees nearly 200ppm of aluminium when boiled (for) 10 minutes in aluminium cooking pots. That is 1000 times the aluminium leached by non-fluoridated water.” Nature reported: In 1987 “With the discovery that abnormally high levels of aluminium are present in senile plaques in Alzheimer’s dementia, the cumulative effects of aluminium poisoning and the question of how this metal enters the body become problems that need immediate attention.” Note the dates. The only surprise is it has taken so long for anyone to realise that Geelong, with its huge historical load of airborne fluoride pollution from Alcoa, Incitec Pivot and Shell, augmented by fluoridated toothpaste and now by fluoridated tap water, should be so seriously afflicted. The evidence is out there. It’s past time that the ninnies who know what’s good for us pulled the plug on this heinous, healthdestroying practice. Peter Mackinlay Geelong

Alternative to caves I AGREE with Russell Williams (Letters, May 21) that we need oil and coal but we shouldn’t be burning the stuff. If we keep on wasting these finite resources, oil in particular, we will deprive humanity of the chief source of raw materials for plastics and chemicals for almost every modern device and substance we need to run a our civilised world. If we continue to use our liquid fuel alternative energy at the present rate without quickly moving to the resulting wars and civil conflicts will send us to the caves that Mr Williams wanted us to avoid but much sooner that he imagined. You only have to look at the current conflicts over oil in countries like Iraq and Nigeria to understand we need alternative energies fast if we are to maintain our current lifestyle. In the past two years I have reduced my family’s energy bill by 60 per cent simply by having solar hot water and electricity, a roof-space solar heating system and buying a second-hand hybrid vehicle. I have calculated that with the savings I’ll pay the whole lot off within a few years. Our addiction to oil from unstable countries condemns us to ever-increasing bills for scarcer and scarcer resources. Government uses our taxes to subsidise the fossil fuel industry to artificially keep energy prices down. These taxes would be better used to properly support alternative energy that will never run out or create pollution. Leigh Adamson Belmont

Cut carbon, vote Greens RUSSELL Williams believes Copenhagen proved scientists are uncertain about the issue of global warming. This could not be further from the truth. There is a clear scientific consensus that climate change is caused by humans. What Copenhagen proved is that climate change is a very difficult political problem and conservative governments are not willing to take the hard decisions necessary to deal with it.

Our Federal Government and opposition are no different. Their greenhouse gas emissions reduction targets of five per cent are pathetic and an insult to the people of Australia. In contrast, the Greens are committed to a greenhouse gas emissions reduction of a minimum 40 per cent by 2020 and to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. These targets are possible and we know what to do to make it happen. The Greens have the capacity to deal with climate change. We have proven we have the ability to develop real solutions to this difficult issue. Our carbon levy proposal is a sensible alternative to the Government’s failed CPRS and is supported by Ross Garnaut, by respected environmental organisations and by business groups across the country. The Government must stop playing politics and negotiate with the Greens to develop an emissions reduction solution as soon as possible. Gavin Brown Greens candidate for Corio

P-12 worst option THE ISSUES regarding the proposed P-12 schooling structure for Grossmans Road is just the Education Department’s cheaper solution for secondary education in Torquay. With the ever-increasing local population, a proper, fully-functional, stand-alone 7-12 is not only warranted but necessary. The existing proposal will see the existing Surf Coast Shire offices transformed into a 10-12 campus, with P-9 housed at the current Torquay College site. These sites are adjacent and the surrounding parcels of land house Torquay Kindergarten and community hub and emergency services, which will only further overload already congested Grossmans Road. If Torquay College becomes a P-12, families in the area will no longer be able to send their children to other state high schools. Their only option would be to bus their children into the city to private high schools. Torquay is the only town in Australia with 14,500 residents that doesn’t have secondary schooling available within the community. Considering this and the ever-increasing population of the surrounding Surf Coast communities, we feel that a stand-alone high school is not only warranted but essential. We are mindful of the fact that P-12 does work in some areas (Letters, May 21). However, they are small areas with only small populations. Concerned Parents About Torquay-Surfcoast Schooling is a community-based group formed to explore this issue and to make public information previously held as confidential. CPATSS plans a public forum on June 21. Anyone interested in attending can visit www.cpatss.com for more information. Justine Marion Bells Beach

Sinking into taxes I HAVE always been led to believe that Labor party policy is to look after the well-being of workers and families but this seems to be a thing of the past with the push for a heavy tax on mining operations. In our area, Geelong is surrounded by mining operations for sand, gravel, blue metal, power and cement, all of which are used in road works, construction, even in water, gas and power installations. The result of the mining tax will be added cost passed on to builders etcetera. Of course, the added tax will come up again as doubled or tripled tax grabs on works etcetera. I encourage everyone to make their feelings known about this grab for more tax money to their local MP. To this end, the next elections cannot come soon enough. Under the state and federal governments, we are sinking fast. Cliff Winkler Torquay

letters Fighting words TODAY Victorian communities are under assault from new geothermal and wind industries. These communities are fighting to be heard by the Brumby and Rudd governments. These communities, expected to live cheek-byjowl with this heavy industry, are highlighting the serious health and environmental risks the industries pose to them. Thankfully, the Democratic Labor Party has supported communities beset by geothermal and wind farm developments and the Liberal/National coalition has just joined the fight with new policy supporting the rights of communities targeted by developments and protecting our coastlines from inappropriate industrial development. Victorian communities may say, with echoes of Churchill: “We shall go on to the end. “We shall fight along the sea among the 12 Apostles. “We shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the political arena. “We shall defend our communities whatever the cost of lawful resistance may be. “We shall fight on the beaches and on the Surf Coast. “We shall fight in our backyards. “We shall fight in the bush-covered hills. “We shall fight on the steps of parliament and in their corporate offices. “We shall never surrender. “Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties and so bear ourselves that if Victoria and its communities last for a thousand years, men will still say ‘This was their finest hour’.” Jamie McInnes Gherang

State creating crowded houses in city STATE Government has granted a planning permit for development of a two-storey building containing six dwellings on a Newtown block measuring about 500 square metres. Planning Minister Justin Madden granted the permit without public consultation and circumvented council’s ordinary planning processes. For the record, City of Greater Geelong is appalled by this development. Council wrote to the minister advising him the community was not consulted and did not support the development. The permit authorises the construction of six dwellings with an average area of some 80sqm. Believe it or not, one unit will have three bedrooms, two will have two bedrooms and

Stretch Kontelj three will have one bedroom. How this can be accommodated in 80sqm is beyond belief. The confined space that social housing residents will be expected to live in is inhumane.Council ordinarily requires 200sqm per unit. I ask Mr Madden and his

Buy-out lure unused I WRITE in response to a recently published letter by Ray Page proposing a commercial fishing licence buy-out. When recreational fishing licences were introduced in Victoria in 1997, I, like most fishos, was under the impression the funds allocated to Port

Labor cronies whether they would be happy to relocate their families into 80sqm. Council is investigating how the Department of Planning calculated the site coverage of the development. State Government’s own ResCode limits site coverage to 60 per cent for this type of development. Mr Madden would have us believe this development has site coverage of 58 per cent. Council officers conservatively estimate it to be around 70 per cent. The Government must be held accountable for this decision which, if allowed to proceed, will see developers adopt this model as a precedent for all multi-unit development around Geelong and Victoria. Stretch Kontelj Kildare ward

Phillip Bay were primarily to buy out commercial fishing licences. Our reasoning was that to continue plundering the resource at existing levels was unsustainable and that the economic value of the resource as a recreational fishery far outweighed the commercial value. The contribution by the recreational sector was

licence fees and bag limits. Recreational anglers understood the priority for the bay was to improve catch rates for both landbased and boating recreational anglers. The best way to do this was to increase depleted fish populations and the best way to do this was to remove commercial netting and apply bag limits to amateurs. Mr Page, a retired VR Fish executive officer, started the ball rolling. I was of the understanding the policy and priority had not changed and would remain until there was no commercial netting in Port Phillip Bay. The fact Mr Page has spoken out suggests commercial licence buy outs may no longer be, and perhaps never were, a priority of VR Fish or State Government. Using the licence revenue money for fishing platforms, cleaning tables, noticeboards, training, surveys, studies etcetera does little to support what should be the number-one objective. VR Fish and the Government may need to be refocussed. Jim Anderson Lara MORE LETTERS PAGE 67

Oils members, Femmes bassist set to bring new surf sounds to Geelong

Breaking out

New band: The Violent Femmes’ Brian Ritchie, front, with former Midnight Oil members, from left, Martin Rotsey, Jim Moginie and Rob Hirst.

Hirst told the Independent he couldn’t wait to bring his “exciting” new project to Geelong. “Geelong was always one of the Oils favourite places to play,” he said. “Everyone is extremely up about the whole thing and can’t wait to get down there.” Hirst said each day with The Break was a “battle to create something spontaneous” but admitted he was thriving under the pressure. “After so many years it’s difficult to get something sounding so spontaneous because we’ve played a lot of gigs and know the recording studio so well,” Hirst explained. “The live show is still in a state of development and every time we play we figure out new parts, which is quite liberating for me. “It’s all very exciting.” The band has just released its debut album, Church of the Open Sky, which boasts 15 “psychodelic” instrumental pieces laced with “modern components”. Most of the songs are named after iconic surf spots, like

track five’s Winki Pop, a legendary reef break next to Bells Beach on the Surf Coast. However, Hirst revealed the band members had a distinct lack of surfing ability. “We’re very inept surfers,” he confessed. “We got surfers we know to name some of their favourite surf spots. “We’re the Brian Wilson (from The Beach Boys) of Australian surfing. “We have a theory: the best surfer music is made by musicians. But we grew up on Sydney’s northern beaches and did quite a bit of body surfing, so we feel qualified to play coastal music.” Hirst said the album and live shows had received “amazing feedback” from a variety of listeners. “We’ve had some incredibly positive reviews,” he said. “Even though we don’t have a lead singer we still want to make it compelling to watch so we play incredibly hard, so there’s a lot to watch.” The Break plays at Geelong’s The Studio on June 11.

’S T A Book H W ON

BY ALEX DE VOS WHAT do you get when you cross three members from Midnight Oil with the bass player from US band Violent Femmes? Of course, the answer is an instrumental surf band aptly named The Break. Featuring legendary Oils drummer Rob Hirst, The Break is like some early ’80s rock fan’s drunken fantasy come to life. The CVs of Rob Hirst, Jim Moginie, Martin Rotsey and Brian Ritchie feature two of the most influential bands of the past four decades along with countless live shows and international stardom. Offering fans a fresh take on the 1960s surf sound commonly associated with acts like The Beach Boys and The Atlantics, the world’s latest supergroup unearths the raw talents of veteran musicians that were usually hidden behind powerful lyrics. After nearly four decades in the spotlight, each member brings as much enthusiasm to the stage as they displayed in their pre-all-star fusion days.

‘Hybrid folk band’ set to go all interactive BY ALEX DE VOS LOCAL progressive folk band Moonah will headline an interactive music festival at the Bellbrae Hall on Saturday night. Promoters likened the Surf Coast band’s sound to “the gnarled Moonah trees which crown the local cliff tops”. “Moonah has a bent and twisted appeal, shaped by the forces of nature and beauty of their coastal homeland,” the promoters said. Moonah frontman Mark Trinham described the band’s song writing style as “instinctive and intuitive”. “None of the core members have been formally trained in music, nor do we feel constrained to any particular style or genre,” he said. “We have always enjoyed creating moods and evoking soundscapes with our music. “We like the freedom to experiment and just play music that moves us – it’s more of a journey than a song.” The four-piece instrumental band features a range of instruments including the tin whistle, banjo, didgeridoo, keyboards, violin, guitars, drums and flugelhorn. Music critics say the band effortlessly harnesses the energies of the Victoria’s Surf Coast. “Moonah tap right into a very interesting hybrid of folk, progressive, psychedelic and surf rock,” one critic said. “The use of the didgeridoo grounds the music in a way that conjures up connection to the stretch of country between Geelong and Lorne and the soaring guitar and violin sent me right out there. “Irish, Spanish and Andes-leaning folkies give way to indigenous surf instrumentalists and there’s always a surprise when you least expect it.” The event also features a performance by singer songwriter CC Thornley.

City baby and children’s market on again this weekend eelong Baby and Children’s Market will run again from 9am to 3pm this Saturday at Vines Road Community Centre. Mothers of twins Janina Lear and Susan Geall founded the market after noting demand for a way for people to buy pre-loved baby and children’s

G

goods. The market started back in May, 2007, as a fundraiser for Geelong Area Multiple Birth Association. However, the popularity of the concept soon turned the market into a business and a change of location was needed. Now Geelong Baby and Children’s Market is back in its original home at

Vines Road. Fences are around the centre due to a building project but the market is running as normal. “We differ to other markets in that 20 of our 53 stall holders are businesses, so we cater for all types of shoppers,” Janina and Susan say. The market sells everything from maternity wear and toys to car seats and

play pens and even acts as a contact point for a children’s photographer and a gym for getting into shape after pregnancy. Entry is $3 per adult.

1 To make the marinade, cut the lemon into 1/4cm slices and place in a medium saucepan with 1.2 litres of water, the honey, soy sauce, rice wine and spices. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 20 minutes until flavours are infused. Set aside. 2 Wash duck inside and out, then pat dry with paper towel. Use kitchen string to tie the duck\’s legs firmly together. Place in a large pan and pour over a kettle of boiling water. Leave for 1 minute. Transfer duck to a wire rack over a roasting tray, pat dry, then baste with marinade until the skin is completely coated. 3 Set the uncovered duck aside to dry out for 4-5 hours (you can face a fan on to the duck to speed up the process - the duck skin should feel like taut parchment when ready). 4 Preheat the oven to 240°C. 5 Pour 50ml cold water into the pan (to stop the fat from splattering). Cook in the oven for 15 minutes, then reduce the heat to 180°C and roast for a further 1-1/4 hours. Set duck aside for 10 minutes to rest before carving.

The Independent, Friday May 28, 2010.


letters Victoria Inc. THE CHANCE for any meaningful political change in this state may be limited. The state operates under the Victorian Constitution Act 1975, which is merely an act of parliament and not a proper state constitution sanctioned by the people of Victoria by means of a referendum. The lawfulness of this constitution then comes into question. As both sides of politics, Labor and Liberal, are happy enough to operate this way, the people might wonder where they actually stand in regard to getting lawful government. The present constitution gives the Government the power to do as it pleases Given that State Government overrides planning matters constantly, approving developments that leave the citizens perplexed and outraged, one might wonder whether the onus on good government has anything to do with government decision-making. The Commonwealth and state governments operate as corporations, financed by taxpayer contributions. On this basis, one might think the appropriateness of developments might more closely reflect the desires

of the community. A corporation is a commercial entity and its mission is to make profits for its shareholders. If our state and federal governments are to operate under such a model, why then are taxpayers, who fund their activities, not issued shares nor receive a consideration for their financial input? Perhaps the Victorian constitution needs to be rewritten so people who finance the state have a say in how it operates and the Government’s powers. Gary Oraniuk Geelong

Greens fluoridated APPROACHING a state election, where are the Greens on health? Candidate Lisa Owens quoted state Greens leader Dr Richard Di Natale that the Greens will provide better health for all Australians. Yet Geelong and Warrnambool have just had water fluoridation forced upon them over widespread community rejection. In Warrnambool 25 doctors publicly opposed the fluoride chemical being added to the water because

its safety is not proven. Recent studies have connected fluoride consumption from tap water with bone cancer and thyroid gland damage. Fluoridation is an environmental threat. The community wants candidates who will stand up for our right to fluoride-free water or at least to have a vote on whether the controversial health treatment is allowed. Amazingly, the Greens seem to have no policy whatever on fluoridation. Can they claim to be a green party at all? David McRae Barwon Freedom from Fluoridation

Horrors of abortion AMONG the many shocking abortion facts reported by the recently released report on peri-natal deaths by Council on Paediatric Mortality was that in 2007 54 mature foetuses survived “failed” abortions in Victoria, only to die “post-natally”. This strongly suggests that those babies were neglected to death, if not deliberately killed. It also demonstrates that abortion in reality means

death for born as well as unborn babies. The situation in Victoria is likely to be even worse now. Since 2007, Victoria’s parliament has passed the most extreme pro-abortion laws in the western world. Among other things, the laws effectively allow abortion up to the point of birth for any reason or for no reason and they legally force doctors to participate in the process whatever their conscientious objections. The horrors of abortion will always be underreported. There is no advocate for the unborn in an abortion - the only people with first-hand knowledge of what actually happens are the mothers and medical personnel who are all devoted to the destruction of the foetus or baby. It is hardly in their interests to let the public know the full facts. Peter Kavanagh MP DLP Member for Western Victoria

T

body, these engines were upped in size to 3.5 and 4.2 litres, at the same time they received major design changes almost making them all-new units. Best of all for the upmarket revheads are the supercharged versions of the 4.0- and 4.2-litre V8s. Reliability has long been a weak point in Jaguars, though the Ford influence began to show through in the early 1990s and from 1994 there were major improvements. Servicing, spare parts and insurance costs are all on the high side. As with all cars in this luxury class it’s smart to buy one with a full service record. These may be more expensive but it’s almost invariably worth it. Then play it smart by continuing to get service from a Jaguar dealer On your road test be sure it doesn’t hesitate and there are no smoke fumes from the exhaust. Check that the brake fluid has been changed on schedule on older Jags. Not doing so can lead to expensive troubles. Also on older cars check that all electrical items are working properly. Beware of problems that are intermittent as these can be frustratingly hard to track down. Watch out for an automatic transmission that’s slow to go into gear and/or which hunts from gear to gear unnecessarily. Hill climbing for an extended distance usually brings out this fault. Jaguars used galvanised steel body panels, until mid 2003 then switched to weight-saving aluminium. The galvanised steel variants should be rust free unless they have been incorrectly repaired after a crash. Damaged aluminium panels may have to be repaired by a specialist so be sure to get a quote from an expert, even for the smallest of dents.

46 YEARS CONTINOUS TRADING IN GEELONG : RACV

403219-JF21-10

BY ERIC BLAIR he XJ Jaguar is a grand touring sporting saloon from Great Britain. These are wonderful cars to ride in, with the sort of traditional leather-and-wood cabin finish of which only the British have a true understanding. The interior really is like a highspeed English gentlemen’s club on wheels. Anyone who has ever ridden in a Jaguar will rave about the feel and general ambiance. Graceful styling had long been the number one reason for the popularity of Jaguars, yet, forgetting its roots, in 1986 the British company made a huge blunder in designing a Jaguar with what it thought was an American appearance to try and please potential buyers from that country. Then they found out that the Americans liked Jaguars because they looked British. Jaguar lost sales and went bankrupt. It was taken over by Ford in the USA. Fortunately, the new owners had a better understanding of English tradition than the confused Jaguar hierarchy and the next XJ model, which arrived in Australia in November 1994, was a big improvement in styling. The following model, launched in Australia in July 2003, was criticised for looking too much like its predecessor. The traditional Jaguar ‘XJ6’ tag disappeared for a while, but was revived in March 2004 with the return of V6 (not straight-six) engines. These smaller engines were made possible by the light aluminium body and provide more than enough power for many owners. Try for yourself though, as keen drivers may find them marginal. Jaguar V8 engines, in sizes of 3.2 and 4.0 litres replaced the old straight sixes late in 1997. In 2003, with the all-new

Bare: Torquay’s Alan Howlett loves the look of a “naked bike”.

Pictures courtesy Alan Howlett

Best of British bikes O

ne of the best British bikes ever built, according to Torquay’s Alan Howlett, was the Norton Commando 750, finding worldwide popularity in 1968. To back this claim, Alan pointed out that the Commando was named Machine of the Year by industry newspaper Motor Cycle News for five consecutive years to 1972. A passionate biker, Alan bought a Commando 16 years ago and has gradually restored and improved its handling and performance. Alan’s bike was born at the Norton Motor Cycles’ Andover factory in England in 1971. “I bought it as a runner on the road, I just love the look of a naked bike – without the panels and covers,” Alan said. “When the Commando was named bike of the year it was a pretty good achievement for a British bike.” However, in 1972 the new, more powerful American-built HarleyDavidson aluminium alloy XR-750 was launched, seriously affecting the Norton brand. The Harley quickly became the dominant dirt track racer throughout the next three decades. Alan said when he bought his Commando 750 in Tasmania it was still in good condition. “The guy I bought it from was living in a flat and didn’t have anywhere to store the bike,” Alan recalled. “He’d owned it for a few years but I’m not sure whether he had bought it from new.” Alan, an engineer, said he had rebuilt the Commando’s engine twice in the 16 years since the bike came into his possession. He had also made improvements to the suspension and electronic ignition. “I’ve put in better valves and more advanced stuff that didn’t exist in the 1970s but has made the bike even better without changing the looks. It’s essentially still original. “I’ve used modern steel so the oil doesn’t leak back into the wet sumping and make it too hard to start. “By applying new technology it runs even better, it runs smoother and the reliability is great.” Alan said the vertical twin Commando was also infamous for its extreme vibration. “The two pistons rise and fall at the same time,” he lamented. To overcome this vibration from the bigger 750cc engine, an Isolastic sys-

Wane’s Wheels GREG WANE tem was developed in 1968. The system was a revolutionary engineering feature of the Commando frame, developed by former Rolls Royce engineer Dr Stefan Bauer who redesigned the frame around a single 57mm top tube. The engine, gearbox and swing arm assembly were bolted together and isolated from the frame by special rubber mountings. “Vibrations from the big vertical twin just disappear once you get over a few revs,” Alan said. Now he rides the bike everywhere. “When I go into Geelong for parts, I put the backpack on and take the Commando. “A couple of years ago a few mates from around here got together and we did a ride around Tassie. We did 2500 miles in eight days - the speedos are in miles - and we had a ball.” Because of the large areas of chrome and steel on the bike, Alan said he had to keep replating parts. “Living on the coast, I can tell you it’s important - the salt is terrible on the alloy and the steel. “If you take a bike for a run down the coast, always give it a wash when you get home. It’s the salt in the air that does the damage, it really gets into the alloy. Alan said classic motorcycles are fantastically economical. “Even mine, a fairly high-performance bike, I can get 60 miles to the gallon equivalent and the best thing you can do with a classic bike is to ride it often. “You can still have bags of fun within legal constraints on an old classic bike. You don’t have to go terribly fast to have a great time. “Classic bikes don’t cost big dollars like cars can. The maintenance bill, once you have someone that understands them, is not as expensive as modern bikes. “Another great thing about a classic motor cycle is it doesn’t take up much room. A British bike is small enough to store in a small shed, passageway or

Branding: The distinctive Norton logo and plenty of chrome are the hallmarks of the classic British bike.

Beware the salt air: Alan warns the salt air of the coast can cause havoc with chrome and alloy parts on classic bikes. even the lounge room. “I reckon the lounge room is ideal but there may be women who disagree with me.” Alan previously owned a little BSA Bantam. “I used to ride it to work and store the bike in the office. It was a great

talking point and clients would come in and it would evoke great memories for many of them.” Alan also owns a Corvette Stingray but admitted bikes were his favourite. In fact, he sold his former car rebuild company in Hoppers Crossing and moved to Torquay to concentrate on his passion for bike restorations.

Tight-lipped: Mark Thompson has had enough of answering questions about Gary Ablett’s future with Geelong. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 46761

Bomber’s ‘no idea’ on Gary BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN I’VE GOT no idea” is Geelong coach Mark Thompson’s new standard reply to the standard Gary Ablett question. Speaking during an appearance on footy chat program On the Couch and at a media conference this week, Thompson unveiled his new approach – and it seems to be working. Thompson said he felt he had been misconstrued when he had ventured comments about Ablett’s failure to make a decision as yet on his football future. “I just don’t want to say too much because I feel like I get bashed over the head when I open my mouth. I think it’s a little bit unfair,” Thompson was on much firmer ground when speaking about his other father-son star, Mathew Scarlett. The Cats coach politely – but firmly – ensconced Scarlett as the best full-back of all time.

“In the modern game it’s hard to compare but he can adapt to the game, get possessions – he’s the most effective full-back ever to play.” Thompson expected his star outfit to pull up well after completing a heavy 20-day, four-game schedule with the blockbuster Collingwood win last Friday. He said the extra day’s break over tomorrow’s opponent Melbourne enabled him to “put some extra work” into training sessions. But Thompson did not see Melbourne’s trip to tropical Darwin offering any advantage. “If we went to Darwin last week we would have smashed the recovery and done everything we possibly could to get them up and Melbourne will be doing that,” he said. “So we’ve got to go into the game saying that that’s not an advantage at all. If it works out that way then great but going into

the game we’ve got to say that Melbourne are going to come out and be fine to play the game.” A conservative approach with injuries to Brad Ottens and Joel Corey will leave them out of action until after the split round, while Max Rooke has no date set for his return from a knee injury. “I think the most important thing that we’re concentrating on is going through the stages and making sure that he does get back,” Thompson said. “At the moment there’s still plenty of time. He’s a very, very important player for us because he’s as hard as nails and he really does help our team play well. “We’re not panicking at this stage; we still think he has a really good opportunity to come back into the team.” Tomorrow’s match will also set a milestone for an ex-Cat when Melbourne’s Brent Moloney play his 100th senior game against his former side.

sport GDFL on rating rise Local Footy FRANK MASON North Shore v BELL PARK, ST JOSEPHS v Grovedale.

BFL Like the Geelong Football League, it looks like only six sides can possibly make Bellarine’s top five. Queenscliff, Amateurs, Drysdale, Torquay, Anglesea and Ocean Grove are the six in the hunt, with either Anglesea or Ocean Grove the ones expected to miss out. In a good round of footy, the prospects of this top six will be tested when they are pitted against each other. Selections: QUEENSCLIFF v Ocean Grove, Torquay v DRYSDALE, Anglesea v AMATEURS, Portarlington v Modewarre, BARWON HEADS v Newcomb.

GDFL Nine clubs are still in the hunt for a Geelong and District Football League finals berth. Bell Post Hill is leaving no stone unturned in its quest to win its first premiership, with Chris Moreland from Newtown and Adam Wells from Portarlington putting in clearances to return to the Panthers. The club may need them because last round it lost to Thomson, so playing finals, let alone winning a premiership, is not a lay down misere. Tomorrow it has to travel to Richmond Crescent to take on East Geelong, the side that beat it in last year’s grand final. This will be a bruising affair, with East Geelong just getting over the line. Other selections: INVERLEIGH v Belmont Lions, Corio v WERRIBEE CENTRALS, Geelong West v NORTH GEELONG, Anakie v BANNOCKBURN, THOMSON v Winchelsea.

Rock star: Brendan Sheedy with a couple of typical-size salmon currently available from rock ledges along the Surf Coast.

Beaches and rocks yielding plenty of salmon LAST week’s outstanding captures were not just a one-off, with anglers again catching some big fish in the past week. Bluefin tuna have been all the talk, with countless numbers of fish boated. While the majority are between 10kg and 20kg, fish over 100kg mark have excited anglers. Last week Alister McGlashan boated one over 154kg, while this week Khal Kassao hit the jackpot with a fish weighing 156.4kg. East of Lady Julia Percy Island again had the numbers of big fish and in just 50m to 70m of water. Closer to home, the salmon have been firing from all the beach and rock platforms from Fairhaven to Apollo Bay. Brendan Sheedy and I fished Fairhaven several times during the past week, landing heaps of fish between 800g and 1kg, with our best just over 2kg. While we were casting lures, anglers fishing bait also landed plenty of similarsize fish. Matt McFarlane and his brother in-law had a ball on the weekend, landing 30-plus fish at Eastern View on bluebait. Terry Holt caught all his fish on Surf Snatchers and surf poppers, so he advises that bait is unnecessary because artificial baits are working fine. Fred Geoffrey and his mates fished a mix of bait and lures at Cinema Point to land over 50 salmon in two sessions, with the best fish just over 2kg. This weekend’s early morning low tides should be ideal for Eastern View, while the rocks at Stony Creek, near Lorne,

On the bite BRIAN LONG should be productive on the high tides. Greg Stevens fished the Barwon River estuary where silver trevally to 800g took a liking to his soft plastics Squidgy Critters in the Bloodworm colour. The first hour of the run-off tide has been best in the estuary. Squid were still in the estuary at Ozone Jetty, with small, dark-coloured jigs working best, particularly after dark on slack water. One keen angler who has been baiting up with fresh squid after dark has now caught two small mulloway from the floating jetty at the Ocean Grove boat ramp. Swan Bay produced a variety of species over the past week, including flathead, salmon, trevally and garfish. This area is at its best two hours either side of high tide. Whiting numbers were down but Phillip Burrows caught his bag limit twice fishing close in at Edwards Point. Fresh squid did the job for Phillip, with his best fish a respectable 44cm. Soft plastics anglers again found fish-

ing slow on Corio Bay’s outer-harbour spoil grounds but a few good snapper were still taken. The best I heard of was Geoff McMillan’s 3.7kg fish taken on a Gulp Turtleback worm in the Green Pumpkin colour. Corio Bay was patchy, with North Shore rocks and St Helens rewarding keen anglers with generally small flathead. Better fish were taken on soft plastics at the grammar school lagoon and the entrance to Corio Quay, where Turtleback worms were again the most productive. In freshwater, Lake Purrumbete was again the big winner for rainbow and brown trout. Trevor Sheppard boated one of the best fish for the week at 4.65kg and taken while trolling a number 55 Tassie Devil on a three-colour lead-core line. Closer to home, anyone seeking trout should try Wurdee Boluc Reservoir where lures such as SX 40s and bladed lures are accounting for rainbows of around 1kg in the middle of the day when conditions warm up. Few anglers have been fishing the Barwon River in Geelong but quality redfin are still available. Thomas Welsh worked the area between Buckley Falls and Ceres where, with the use of slow working lures such as the SX 40s, he has regularly landed fish to 950g as well as a respectable brown trout over 1kg. Send reports and photos to info@raylongtackle.com.au or visit Brian at Ray Long’s Fishing World, 105 Shannon Avenue, Manifold Heights.

LOCAL footy leagues return to homeand-away games this weekend after having last week off for inter-league matches. It was a mixed bag of results for our three leagues in Victorian Country Football League Worksafe footy championship. Geelong Football League would be bitterly disappointed to lose to Ballarat after going into the game as firm favourite. Ballarat jumped out of the blocks and kicked seven goals to one in the first quarter. Geelong could not bridge the gap, finally going down by 12 points. What will really hurt the league is the fact it now drops down the pecking order of Victorian Country Leagues to be rated the fifth, at best, side in the competition - a long way from a few years ago when it regularly claimed the number one position. Bellarine Football League also suffered a loss as Murray ran away with the game after a close first half to eventually win by 39 points. The Sharks have had a bad run in inter-league games and the way the championships are structured means that continual losses will see them drop out of major league status. Geelong and District Football League provided the good news of the weekend with a solid 39-point victory over Heathcote. The league will be delighted with the result and will push hard now to be seen as local footy’s second best competition behind Geelong but ahead of Bellarine. This weekend’s Geelong Football League game of the day is on Sunday at Kardinia West where St Mary’s hosts Leopold. To the surprise of all, Leopold sits on top of the ladder and will stay there if they win this one. St Mary’s has one of the best playing lists in the league and has done little wrong so far. Expect a big crowd to witness St Mary’s just get over the line in a fierce contest. The other five games will be played on Saturday. Other selections: COLAC v St Albans, LARA v West Saints, Newtown v SOUTH BARWON,
