Cats ‘on edge’ but confident BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG would go into this weekend’s blockbuster grand final against Collingwood prepared for a fierce contest, according to Cats coach Chris Scott. Scott, coaching in his first grand final on Saturday, said he expected to face an unchanged Pies game plan. He admitted to being a little “edgy� but felt good about the Cats’ potential to clinch another grand final trophy. “(Collingwood) are a terrific side, probably statistically the best side over the last two years, so it’s good for footy I think,� he said. “Collingwood, we would expect, wouldn’t change too much. “This week is really about making sure the attention to detail is right.� Speaking at the Cats open training session midweek, Scott said an injury cloud still floated over Steve Johnson who injured his left knee in the third quarter against West Coat last weekend. The forward has spent the week in a hyperbaric

chamber to aid his recovery. Shannon Burns, Cameron Mooney, Darren Milburn, Taylor Hunt, Cameron Guthrie, and Steve Motlop could replace Johnson if he was unfit to play, Scott said. “Steven is coming along pretty well but we aren’t going to have anything definitive until Friday. At the moment we think he’s a chance,� Scott said. “He needs to perform at top level. The team has always got to come first.� Should Collingwood be successful this weekend, Michael Malthouse would be the oldest premiership coach in the game’s history at 58 years. Collingwood captain Nick Maxwell said injuries were a concern for Pies players Darren Jolly and Ben Reid as the team attempted to win back-to-back flags for the first time since 1936. “They both think they’re fine, in the end it will come down to a decision by the coaching staff come Friday,� he said. “If either isn’t right they’ll step down but I doubt it will get to that stage.�

Inkling: June Blake and her ‘other’ Cats team.

BY ERIN PEARSON GROVEDALE’S June Blake has a winning feeling. The avid Cats supporter has followed the blue and white all her life and truly believes her beloved team will return to Geelong with the chocolates this weekend. Mrs Blake, 78, whose home was a shrine both inside and out to Geelong Football Club, said she was counting down sleeps until the Cats grand final clash with Collingwood at the MCG on Saturday. “I went to the Cats open training session this week and I just got a funny feeling we’re going to win,� she laughed. “It was quite unusual. “This year has just been fabulous and another win would top it all off.� Mrs Blake has been a Cats member for so long she remembers lining up at the gates to Kardinia Park with her

children before “the run to get seats�. She hoped her decorated abode would bring joy to both fans young and old. “People over the years pull up and take photos here and the kindergarten up the road brings the children up to have a look at the windows,� she said. “I get such a thrill out of decorating. All the teddies have hand made outfits and I’ve sewn a whole team of little cats which are all named after Geelong players. “I’ve spent hundreds of hours on all the decorating.� City of Greater Geelong Mayor John Mitchell said Saturday’s match would be broadcast live on a giant screen at Steampacket Gardens on the Waterfront for the first time. The free family event starts at 12.30pm and finishes at 6pm. If the Cats take out the flag on Saturday the City would hold a Premiers’ Street Parade and player presentation on October 5, he said.

Geelong wins deaf games

BAINES BEACH MASSIVE SURF SAMPLE SALE

BY ERIN PEARSON NEWCOMB’S Stan Batson never enjoyed being stuck in an office. Instead he preferred the outdoors where he felt “as free as a bird”. But it wasn’t always that way. Mr Batson was born deaf and said he spent years struggling with the hearing world for acceptance. Now six decades after immersing himself in support services for the deaf, Mr Batson said he was encouraging people to get involved in the 2012 Deaf Games, to be held in Geelong. “It’s one event where deaf people can go and compete and know they’ve tried their hardest,” he said. “Parents can also come and see their children and say ‘that’s my son or daughter’ and be so proud. “I love to help because deaf people have such beautiful gifts, they may have problems with communicating but they are blessed in so many other ways.” The Australian Deaf Games are held every four years and attract competitors from all over Australia and New Zealand. January 14 to 21 will mark the first time in 29 years since the games were last held in Victoria and a first for Geelong. This year’s games will also mark the first time surfing is added to the competition alongside events such as cricket, soccer, swimming, athletics and tennis.

Mr Batson, a keen cricketer in his day, said he felt humbled to see a change in the negative stigma that once made deaf people feel isolated from their communities. He said the Deaf Games would help the deaf feel increased acceptance and ability. “No one used to understand me and would just think deaf people were disabled and stupid but as technology has grown and awareness has grown over the years, people’s attitudes have changed also. “We now have nine interpreters in Geelong and around 140 deaf people active in the community.” For more information or to register visit austdeafgames.org.au.

Riding high A VICTORIAN Taxi Association survey found 92 per cent of regional Victorians rated the State taxi service as good, fair, or excellent. “The Victorian industry has known for a long time that our country drivers are very highly regarded. Many of these drivers are essential parts of their community, with regular customers that they will go out of their way to help,” a VTA spokesperson said.

Creeks protected A SURF Coast Landcare group wants native trees and plants protected during development of the huge Armstrong Creek precinct and expanding Torquay region. The Surf Coast and Inland Plains Network received Corangamite CMA Landcare grants of $50,000 for projects along Thompson Creek and near Armstrong Creek.

No pup love THE DEPARTMENT of Sustainability has warned beach goers not to feed or attempt to pick up or handle seal pups. DSE biodiversity compliance officer Mark Breguet said it was not unusual to see seal pups at this time of year. The animals are fully protected by law, he said.

Police command confirms:

NEED A FACIAL?

No cops for three years The Independent reported last week that Geelong police needed around 130 extra officers and was forced to close stations across the Bellarine as offices were moved to man 24-hour stations. Police Association Secretary Greg Davies said stations across the state were screaming out for more officers. He said Geelong deserved a “whole lot more”. “Nothing’s changed from the situation as it was six months go, a year ago, three years ago,” he said. “The problem is the Chief Commissioner can only allocate as many officers as State Government gives him. “Everywhere is as under resourced

as Geelong is.” Victoria Police announced the allocation of 125 general duties positions across the state this week, to be deployed by the end of December 2011. Brimbank would receive 13 uniformed police, Frankston 11 and Wyndham nine. Seven general duties police positions would go to Ballarat, while Hume, Port Phillip and Greater Dandenong will each received six. The additional police officers were part of a State Government recruitment of 1700 extra police by November 2014.

10-year-old boys beat baffled burglar BY ERIN PEARSON POLICE have released an image of a man they are seeking following an attempted burglary foiled by twin 10year-old boys. The two boys startled a male intruder at their North Geelong house on Tuesday night, according to police. Geelong Police Inspector Chris Gawne said detectives were told the two boys were

home alone playing video games when they heard a noise in the hallway of their Stubbs Avenue home around 8.40pm. “One of the plucky preadolescents decided to investigate and was confronted by a man the corridor,” Insp Gawne said. “The man grabbed the boy and forced him back into the bedroom before fleeing the premises.

“The boy gave chase and saw the man get into the passenger side of a ’90s model dark station wagon which was last seen driving north in Stubbs Ave.” Insp Gawe said although neither boy was injured police were disturbed by the “brazen” attempted burglary. “There is no indication the alleged offender is known to anyone at the house or in the area so at this stage we treat-

ing it as a random burglary.” The alleged offender is described as in his 30s, Caucasian, approximately 183 cm tall with short brown hair. Anyone with information about the aggravated burglary is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit www.crimestoppers Burglar: Alleged .com.au offender.

more officers were expected to follow. “Until then we will do as we’ve been doing for many years,” he said. “We’ve got a set resourcing profile and we do the best we can with that for the whole of the Bellarine and Geelong. “We have blips with unfilled vacancies and people on sick leave who are difficult to replace but we’re in the same pecking order as the rest of Victoria.” Once opened, the new Waurn Ponds station would require around 40 staff, Supt Pottage said. The latest allocation brought Geelong’s 2011 total to 10 extra officers.

BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG was unlikely to receive any significant numbers of extra police until 2014 when the expected Waurn Ponds police station was ready, Geelong police command has confirmed. Geelong was allocated just two extra police between now and Christmas, according to the latest State Government announcement.

BY TOM BENNETT GEELONG’S happiest fun run is expected to raise a record amount for charity this year. Organisers of the annual Dawnbusters Run hope to make more than $5000 to be distributed among a number of worthy causes. Event Manager Jamie Harcourt said it was a fun run with “the emphasis on fun.” “It’s open to all comers, babies in prams, kids on skates and even dogs on leads,” she said. The event will be held on New Year’s Eve around a five-kilometre circuit from the Carousel on the Waterfront to the Botanical Gardens and return. Registration will begin at 6am and the race to start at 7am. Entry is $10 for over 18s and $5 for under 18. Proceeds go to Give Where You Live, which helps support a number of local charities including Glastonbury, Shannon Park, Scope and Barwon Youth. Ms Harcourt said the event is expected to attract almost 1000 participants. “The Dawnbusters Fun Run is a fantastic way to prepare for the indulgences of New Year’s Eve,” Ms Harcourt said. “There are prizes, give-aways and stacks of fun,” she said.

VEHICLES parked in Geelong, Corio and Norlane were in the top 10 locations for damage, according to the RACV. The suburbs were named as part of the motoring organisation’s latest insurance claims data. Inner Melbourne suburbs South Yarra, St Kilda and Richmond were the riskiest areas in the state for malicious damage.

O’Brien said mosquitos could cause a number of serious ailments. “The Ross River virus is always of great concern. ”It causes great pain in the joints and its debilitating effects can last years,” he said. “Also, there is the Bairnsdale Ulcer – there was an outbreak on the Peninsula recently. “With all mosquito bites there is the chance of secondary infection,” he said. Mr O’Brien said midge bites could cause serious blistering and weeping of the skin and, like mosquito bites, carried the risk of secondary infection. “The symptoms can often take many weeks to clear up,” he said. “There are plenty of good reasons to avoid these dangerous pests,” Mr O’Brien said.

530957-RMB39-11

BY TOM BENNETT SWARMS of the dangerous Tiger mosquito have begun infesting parts of the Bellarine Peninsula, according to a leading pest control expert. Grovedale pest controller Cameron Skedd warned the “risk area” included popular beach resorts from Barwon Heads and Queenscliff to Portarlington. He said the notorious pests recently migrated in large numbers from their traditional breeding grounds in Gippsland. “Unlike most other mosquitos, the Tiger can breed in salt water and it can breed all year round. “This means mozzies are with us 52 weeks a year - not just the summer months,” he said. Mr Skedd said the Peninsula offered a perfect environment for the Tiger. ”Lakes, waterways and low lying wetlands, like those between Point Lonsdale and Ocean Grove, are ideal breeding grounds for this species.” Mr Skedd also warned large numbers of midges were on their way to Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula. “Midge swarms have been recently found in the Western District and they’re heading east. “The strong summer and autumn rains have ensured they had a really good breeding cycle this year.” Mr Skedd said it was important householders took steps to stop the pests breeding on their property. “Anywhere there is static or stagnant water is a potential breeding place,” Mr Skedd said. “Things like old tyres, buckets, wheelie bins and pot plant holders should be emptied of water.” He advised water tanks should be fitted with mesh screens to deny mosquitos and midges access and that vegetable oil should be lightly applied to the surface of the water.

Big wave surfer conquers Albatross BY ERIN PEARSON TORQUAY’S big wave surfer Jeff Rowley (pictured left) has plunged into the Australian and world big wave titles after conquering a 15-metre wave. Rowley, 32, said the monster 50 foot wave was caught at a secret location off the Victorian coast. Rowley said he’d been watching weather charts for months ahead of the climax for a chance to ride one of the “biggest waves ever” in Australia. Rowley said getting to the wave at a secret spot way out to sea nicknamed Albatross, was “challenging”. “When I’m flying down a massive wave, nothing else in the world matters. My senses are on overload and I’ll stop at nothing to be there.” Last year’s largest waves surfed as part of the competitions were around 25 feet or seven metres, Rowley said. Next up for the Surf Coast prodigy is tackling a wave of around 15 metres without the usual help of a jet ski tow-in, to raise money for his Charge for Charity Breast Cancer fundraiser.

are currently on hold through lack of funds,” he said. Cr Richards would not detail the roads and drains in most urgent need but said the problem existed in all parts of the municipality. The federal funding initiative began in 2000 with Geelong receiving more than $18 million in grants. It was due to end in 2014 after two extensions. Cr Richards said it was extremely important that the funding program continue. “Council had a substantial infrastructure and maintenance funding gap dating back

to the time of amalgamation.” “We have brought that (amount) down over time but there is still never enough money to carry out all the work that needs to be done,” he said. “The Roads to Recovery program is vital for councils to continue to upgrade and maintain the safety of local roads,” he said. Geelong councilors agreed to petition the Federal Government for increased and ongoing Roads to Recovery funding. “Roads to Recovery is a good program which normally finds support from both sides of the House,” Cr Richards said. “We need it to continue”.

Notoriously tall ship sets sail to Geelong BY TOM BENNETT AFTER 12 years and 1000 heartaches, mariner Graeme Wylie is poised to hoist the mainsail on his “dreamboat” and set course for Geelong. Mr Wylie, from Bushfield in the Western District, has built a replica 18 metre Portuguese caravel with its maiden outing set for Geelong’s Wooden Boat Festival. He is one of those rare breed of backyard crazies called amateur boat builders. Normally their projects end up as unfinished hulks but Mr Wylie will tell you he’s made of more determined stuff. Early this year, after “trials and tribulations without number”, his vessel Notorious hit the water. “She is based on a Portuguese caravel designed in the year 1480,” he said. “I’ve tried to keep everything onboard in the original style. “The blocks and deck hardware are made of wood and the sheets and lines are natural fibre,” Mr Wylie said. He also said no trees were felled to make the vessel. “We used distressed timber and Monterey cypress that had been bulldozed by local farmers,” he said. Mr Wylie admits he had made a few concessions to the 20th century. “We’ve got a diesel inboard, all 170 horsepower of it.

Ahoy there: The Notorious is headed our way. “There’s also modern day navigation gear and all the latest safety equipment,” he said. The good ship Notorious displaces 58 tonnes. “She is a real heavyweight, slow but extremely sea worthy,” Mr Wylie said. Her rig is Lateen style, similar to the

Arab dhows of the ninth century, the former furniture maker said. “We will berth in Geelong prior to Christmas and stay alongside until March’s wooden boat event,” the proud skipper said. “She is a floating reminder of a distant era when mighty sailing vessels were build by hand and in the total absence of technology.”

Regional Rail Link is a major new rail line that will provide capacity for enough extra trains for thousands more passengers across theMelbourne and country rail networks in the peak period. As part of the project we have established a Community Reference Group (CRG). The CRG plays an important role in providing information about the project to stakeholders, as well as in feeding back any questions to the project team.

10 year olds begging, fighting

‘We need more city security’ – whistleblower BY ERIN PEARSON CHILDREN as young as ten were begging for money and fighting in central Geelong, according to a whistleblower. The security officer, who didn’t want to be named for fear of losing his job, works at the Moorabool Street bus interchange and is concerned for the welfare of children and youths roaming the city in gangs during the day. He said unless Geelong’s council put on more security officers before summer, violence and misbehavior could spiral “out of control”. In the last three months he’d witnessed around nine fights, he said. “One guy used a bike lock that weighed about two kilograms as a weapon that we had to take care of. These guys are basically fighting amongst each other. “We’re overwhelmed by it all

because we are trying to take care of old folk and deal with the fighting youth. “Over summer we desperately need our staff numbers doubled because we’re just trying to make everyone safe.” The Independent reported earlier this month that a 21-year-old Leopold man required medical attention after he was assaulted in central Geelong on September 13. Hume Protection Group chief executive officer Rocky Pirrottina, security contractor for the bus exchange, said despite the alleged incidents, violence had reduced in central Geelong. Mr Pirrottina said he was more concerned about the number of youths consuming alcohol around Moorabool Street’s bus interchange. “I believe a bigger police presence would help. We need them in town every day,” he said.

Barwon Youth Executive Director Shane Murphy said many Geelong children came from dysfunctional families and were unable to live at home, which often pushed them out onto the streets. “This agency recognises the need for outreach youth workers,” he said. “City of Greater Geelong wants to solve the problems around Moorabool St but I don’t see any outreach activity in the city centre. “CCTV cameras aren’t even on during the week.” Geelong Police Inspector Chris Gawne said the station would continue its foot and bike patrols through central Geelong throughout spring and summer. City of Greater Geelong failed to respond to the Independent’s request for comment prior to the paper going to press.

Medical cycle: Rylan, Don and Ray.

Picture: John Conway 71074

Charity ride a family affair BY TOM BENNETT FOURTEEN-year-old Rylan Bird and his 62-year-old grandfather Ray McNamara are on the ride of a lifetime. The two cyclists are pedalling between Sydney and Geelong to raise money for Rylan’s father Don who suffers an extremely rare and life threatening medical condition. The riders are doing their bit towards the $100,000 needed for treatment. “The only doctor that specialises in the disease I have is based in New Jersey, so I must travel to the

United States in search of a cure,” Mr Bird said. Late last year he was diagnosed with a paralysed phrenic nerve, the tiny nerve that controls the operation of the diaphragm. It affects his breathing and as a result he has only 40 percent lung capacity. “I am in real trouble if I contract pneumonia or any other raspatory ailment,” Mr Bird said. “Even a mild cold can cause serious scarring on my lungs.” Rylan and his grandad left Sydney Opera House on Thursday on the 1000 kilometre nine-day journey.

The pair is scheduled to arrive at the Belmont Criterion Track at 12.30pm on October 8. So far, the Bird family has raised about $60,000 for Don’s life saving journey. “We are hoping Rylan and Ray’s marathon cycling effort will substantially add to that amount,” Mr Bird said. He said previous fund raising activities included two trivia nights that poured more than $30,000 into the appeal coffers. “The Geelong community have really got behind me. Their support has been overwhelming and I am very grateful,” he said.

BLOW

Charity Evening in memory of Sue Vaughan

AWAY

Join the club JOHN VAN KLAVEREN a dedicated group of blues lovers in Geelong holding “frequent social events” as befits the music scene. Some of the local and visiting musicians have included Ash Grunwald, Geoff Achison, Rockbottom James and the Detonators, Jeff Lang, Phil Manning, Chain, Kate Meehan, Matt Corcoran, Muddy Puddles, Turning Blue, Spectrum, Wild Turkey, Oozin’ Blues, Kerry Simpson, The Big Blue, Chubby Rae and the Elevators, Lloyd Speigal and Dutch Tilders. The club is associated with other blues clubs around Australia, including the Melbourne Blues Appreciation Society and the South Australian Blues Society. And just like the Blues Brothers of cult movie fame, the club is on a mission: To promote the enjoy-

ment and appreciation of blues music. “We like to foster the development of local talent by providing exposure to other musicians and the public,” Daryl said. “Geelong is a leader in blues music because it provides a good standard of entertainment locally and that encourages a high standard of music by promoting a variety of bands and performers, both local and imported. “We get a lot of musos through because we are close to various festivals such as Queenscliff and the Blues Train.” One of the highlights every year is the two day Bluestone Festival at Murgheboluc public reserve featuring 10 acts. Held every New Years’ Eve, the festival attracts around 500 blues lovers from Geelong and all over the country. Last year it featured Sweet Felicia and the Honeytones, Brian Fraser’s Turning Blue, Stringybark McDowell, the Grizzly Bros, The Mojo Corner, Backstreet Blues Band, Wayne Jury, Dave Steel and Welcome Wagon, The Blues Reverends and Trailer Trash.

OCTOBER HOLIDAYS

SOCCER CAMP

SILENT AUCTION & MYSTERY BOX NIGHT WHEN: WHERE: TIME: TICKETS:

THE TITLE of sleepy hollow isn’t heard much around the town these days – except at the Sleepy Hollow Blues Club. But the name suits the laid-back style of the club and its 106 members and fans of blues, folk and roots music. On the fourth Sunday of every month as many as 120 sidle up to a room at Geelong Trades Hall with their guitars, banjos and various bush-type stringed instruments for a jam session. The club provides a drum kit, two guitar amps and bass amp so budding musicians can showcase their talents. Membership officer Daryl Unthank said the Sunday afternoon jam session was always popular and an opportunity for musicians to relax and learn at the same time. Appetites developed by the musical feast are satiated with the club’s “famous” barbecue before settling down to clap and cheer for a headline act. Last month Stringybark McDowell and Mick Bennett cranked up the fun and this month it was multi-instrumentalist Shaun Kirk. The club has been strumming along since foundation in 1994 by

Music’s healing touch bilingual and it affected both languages.� The brain injury also affected her walking ability. “Even after therapy, it took me 30 minutes to walk five metres. I had no sense of falling. “I could see a wheelchair outside my room but I looked at it and thought ‘no’. I knew that if did not push through now it might never happen.� There was a ray of hope that the music teacher discovered, however. Her husband Graeme brought in her violin one day. “When Graeme brought in the violin I just started playing,� Patrycja said. “I just started a violin concerto I’d only just learned before the accident. “I am thankful that my music wasn’t affected by my brain injury – it gave me hope.� Such has been her progress that earlier this year Patrycja graduated from the Tasmanian Conservatory of Music. She played solo violin in a Tasmanian Discovery Orchestra concert and is the lead violin in the Geelong Community Orchestra. Patrycja is finally feeling good again – she later learned she did get the job, and was encouraged to let the library know when she was well enough. “That’s something else to look forward to. It gives me confidence,� she said. And she had her driving assessment recently and was expecting a letter from VicRoads giving her the all clear to get behind the wheel again.

GEELONG council will make a major submission to the State Government on the proposed relocation of the state’s car export/import trade. Under the proposal, the importing and exporting of motor vehicles would be transferred away from the Melbourne docks to the Port of Geelong. Council’s submission would respond to a State Government discussion paper posing a number of strategic questions about how the plan might best be delivered. Economic Development portfolio holder Cr Rod Macdonald said, if adopted, it would provide major economic benefits for the region. “We strongly support the State Government feasibility study into relocating the car import/export trade to the Port of Geelong.� “The port is a very important economic driver for the Geelong region and the addition of the car trade will benefit the broader economy even further,� Cr Macdonald said. “We are looking forward to working with the State Government on this feasibility study.�

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN PATRYCJA Radzi-Stewart was feeling good – she had just attended a job interview, her first since applying for casual library positions. But shortly afterwards, her world went blank, waking in hospital a week later without even realising why. “It’s still a mystery,� Patrycja recalled this week. “The movie in my head stops at that point.� It was only later that Patrycja discovered that she had literally been hit by a bus while driving along Gheringhap St to return to her Waurn Ponds home. The bus ploughed into the left side of Patrycja’s car, ending up only a metre from her. She received a massive blow to the left side of her head, causing three skull fractures and depressing bone pieces into her brain, but amazingly, no other significant in juries. But the brain injury was so serious, Patrycja was airlifted to the Royal Melbourne Hospital where she was placed in an induced coma for three and a half days. “It was strange, because it wasn’t the way I’d normally go,� Patrycja said. “I still don’t know what happened and probably never will.� As she slowly improved and moved from intensive care to a neurological ward, Patrycja found her speech badly affected. “I had little ability to put words together. I knew inside my head what I meant, but my mouth did not make the right sounds. I am

BUCKETS to Fools and their Money. Householders should be able to leave their solar powered lights and whatever else they choose to in their front gardens. We are not mind readers, we don’t ask for the thieving, trespassing morons to steal our belongings. We have a choice to beautify our gardens and should be able to do so without low lives spoiling it for us. Green thumb, Norlane

Do you have a Carmen Miranda trapped inside you, ready to burst out?

BUCKETS to the small – of stature and mind – residents who claim new enterprise in town is unfitting. Progress means you getting with the times. Update, St Leonards BUCKETS to a major furniture retailer selling a damaged lounge but not offering replacement or response to a written complaint. A repairman contacted us four weeks later and cost us three hours off work to wait for them. Disgusted, Highton BOUQUETS to Larraine in the homewares department of Myer Geelong who went completely out of her way to help me. She went above and beyond what I could ever have expected and I am truly thankful. Service personified, East Geelong BOUQUETS to Luke Marendaz at Auzzie Wrinkly Tin Tanks: Excellent customer service and a lovely young man. I ordered garden beds and Luke helped me with colours and sizes. All the best in the future with your business.

Not only were they receptive to feedback but went beyond my expectations.

We won’t forget, East Geelong

BOUQUETS to Santa’s little helpers: Larry, who helped me get two large boxes into my car at Aldi Corio; and Elaine, for watching my 17month old while we did so. Your kindness is greatly appreciated. Bigger boot, Bannockburn 530961-KS39-11

WE HAVE many icons in this city without adding extra expense for another. Why not clean up our bay and its surrounds? Spending dollars on a manufactured theme is a waste. Spend the money on our beautiful bay by landscaping the Western Beach cliffs and cleaning up all the grime and grot in the water from beginning to end. No good having a new icon when we have a putrid Corio Bay to bring people to see. We could then confidently have the beauty to encourage cruise ship visitors to stay and explore our shores. At the moment, walking around it is not a very good idea if one is a visitor. Sandra Camm Highton

Grand holiday THE AFL Grand Final is one of the biggest events on our sporting calendar. It attracts attention from across the world and is loved by people of all ages. Victorians find many ways to celebrate in the lead up to the Grand Final, whether it’s attending a barbecue at a local football club or lining up along Melbourne’s streets to welcome the Grand Final players who take part in the parade. That’s why we believe a public holiday on Grand Final Friday makes sense. A public holiday would allow more Victorians to attend the parade and other festivities before the Grand Final, and would give regional communities an opportunity to host events. Making the Friday before the Grand Final a public holiday would benefit families and tourism, and would help capitalise on a major event in our state. A new public holiday is also an important way to thank people for the great contribution they made to the community. We understand Victorians are working harder every day and a public holiday would give them an opportunity to spend more time with their families. There isn’t a public holiday between the Queen’s Birthday and the Melbourne Cup, and I don’t think it’s too much to ask to combine a proper break for families with an iconic sporting event.

Mr Baillieu has ruled out the idea, but Victorians can urge the Premier to reconsider making Grand Final Friday a public holiday by getting behind this campaign. Daniel Andrews Opposition leader

Willing and able RED CROSS encourages everyone to prepare a will with special community wills events to be held in East Geelong and Grovedale during October. The death of a loved one is a difficult time for everyone. You can help ease the stress on your loved ones by having a current will. A legal will can save those closest to you from an enormous amount of unnecessary anxiety, complication and expense after you pass. A will is also the most practical way of ensuring your final wishes are clear and the people you wish to look after are, in fact provided for. Ensuring your will is up to date is vital, especially if you have recently, married, had children or grandchildren, bought a property, divorced or experienced bereavement. After providing for loved ones, you can also help others by leaving a gift in your will to Red Cross, so they can assist the most vulnerable people in our local communities for generations to come. Every gift in every will, however large or small, makes a difference. Red Cross and local solicitors have teamed up to help people prepare simple wills for only $75 per person, at special community wills events at Grovedale and East Geelong on the October 27 and 28. Ian Williamson Red Cross

Event city I THINK its about time Geelong had another event. I know last year we had the cycling event, which was good for Geelong. I feel that Geelong needs something around grand final time as we do need people coming to Geelong. City hall needs to look around again and see what sporting event they can bring to Geelong over the six days when the grand final week is on. Brian Porter South Geelong

Carbonated EMISSION reduction can be achieved by positive direct action and incentives rather than hurting local families and the economy with a toxic carbon tax as the LaborGreen Government wants to do. Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s policy incompetence will actually drive up emissions from 2012 to 2020 from 578 million tonnes to 621 million tonnes. Local families will be among the first and hardest hit by this toxic carbon tax electricity bills will jump by 10 per cent in the first year alone and gas bills by nine per cent. Even on the Government’s own figures, many households are going to be worse off immediately, including single income families on $65,000 and that’s just the start. The manufacturing sector is already under enormous strain and the carbon tax will simply add further costs, which overseas competitors do not have to pay. Local jobs will be put at risk. The Coalition is committed to addressing climate change and to reducing emissions by five per cent by 2020. We will achieve real emissions reductions through our Direct Action Plan by cleaning up Australia’s dirtiest power stations, investing in soil carbon to replenish the land, providing direct incentives for business and industry to reduce their emissions, planting an additional 20 million urban trees and investing in solar and other renewable energy. Our plan is fully-funded and will ensure a Coalition government lives within its means. It will help protect local jobs, take the cost of living pressures off families and deliver real action to improve our environment.

BY ERIN PEARSON HE FELL in love with the Big Apple’s easy living and maid service but The Grates guitarist John Patterson still calls Australia home. After almost two years abroad Patterson and band member Patience Hodgson have returned with their brand new album Secret Rituals. “I got homesick every now and again, I really missed my friends, but the cool thing was over there I could create a second life,” he said. “America has 24-hour grocery stores, people to do laundry and practically anything else you need for a really cheap price. “For me it was really important to have that as my security blanket when trying to work on something creative. “When it works it really works.” The Grates dug deep in their adopted homeland to establish the routines, methods and procedures that would become their Secret Rituals. Patterson said after five years of touring the world with critically acclaimed albums, Gravity Won’t Get You High and Teeth Lost, Hearts Won, The Grates decided to take a different approach to their new record. And so the pair moved to Brooklyn and waited for inspiration to strike. Slowly new routines emerged and the pair found themselves trapped in the studio. “I think we just wanted to make sure it was good no matter what, whether it took a year or three years,” Patterson said. “It did take a lot longer than expected but we didn’t want to put anything out that wasn’t up to scratch.

Poppykettle celebrates 30th BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG’S iconic Poppykettle festival will celebrate 30 years next month after entertaining the children of Geelong for three decades. Today, the Poppykettle Children’s Festival remains one of Geelong’s largest family events, held across two days and dedicated to promoting and celebrating performing arts for young people. GPAC General Manager Jill Smith said hundreds of children from primary schools and kindergartens across the Geelong region were expected to attend this year’s festival. “We’re thrilled to be celebrating the 30th birthday of what has become a Geelong institution,” she said. “Now some of the kids who came along in 1981 bring their own children to the Poppykettle Festival. “That makes it even more special.” First held in 1981, Poppykettle Children’s Festival was created by the Geelong Corio Teacher Librarians Association who decided to hold a literary day for children. Held as part of the week-long Springding Festival, the event was inspired by local author Robert Ingpen’s award winning children’s book The Voyage of the Poppykettle. Ingpen’s The Voyage of the Poppykettle is a tale about a group of “hairy Peruvians” who set sail from Peru in a very unconventional “ship” in search of a new home. Geelong born and raised, Ingpen is a world renowned author and artist who has written and illustrated more than 100 works. GPAC’s Youth and Education Program coordinator Kelly Clifford said this year’s festival would offer a plethora of entertainment. “On Thursday, Kinder Day will encourage children to play, make, laugh and create as they join in a range of free activities organised by kindergartens from across the region, as well as the library and art gallery,” she said. “Friday’s Primary Day will be chock-full of activities, including hip-hop dancing, singing, drama classes and even a “sound safari”.” Ms Clifford said in honor of the 30th anniversary

Finally Friday

Maritime exhibition THE SHIPS That Shaped Australia, an exhibition of 27 paintings of vessels that sailed into the history books, has been launched at Cape Otway Lightstation by Maritime Museum of Victoria chairman Henry Hudson. Each of the large scale works were painted in the 1970s and 1980s by Jack L Koskie, a former lecturer at Deakin University, for his book the Ships That Shaped Australia. Koskie’s works capture the high drama of early shipping in Australia including American whale boats, the first ship to traverse Bass Strait from west to east in 1801 the HMS Lady Nelson, and the Loch Ard which was wrecked in 1878 trying to sight the Cape Otway light. The most contemporary vessel in the exhibition is Australia II the famous wing-keeled racing yacht which won the Americas Cup in 1983. There’s also a rare survivor, the colonial ketch May Queen, a trading vessel built in 1867, which can still be seen moored at Constitution Dock in Hobart. Mr Hudson said the collection gifted to the maritime museum by the Koskie family represented the artist’s lifelong fixation with all things maritime and dedication to research.

• PHAROAHS BISTRO • TA TAB / SPORTS BAR

“He showed meticulous care and attention to detail, he thought it was essential that his paintings reflected the correctness of the ships and the sea. And the set of the sails had to be correct,” Mr Hudson said. Lightstation manager Paul Thompson said Cape Otway had real links with some of the vessels portrayed in the exhibition such as the SS Casino, a steamship which traded between Melbourne and Port Fairy, and the Marco Polo, sailed by the infamous captain James ‘Bully’ Forbes. “We’re thrilled to have the exhibition, which has only been exhibited twice before, at the lightstation,” Mr Thompson said. “It gives locals and tourists further insight into our amazing maritime history, which the lightstation is very keen to promote and preserve. “We’re an island nation surrounded by sea, many of our forebears arrived by ship and for at least the first 150 years of European settlement ships were our lifeline to the rest of the world – our maritime heritage is a huge part of our history.” The paintings can be seen in the Lightkeeper’s Cafe at Cape Otway until February.

Cheapest Waterfront Homes in Australia A

n absolute waterfront village on the Bellarine Peninsula situated only 9km from the heart of Geelong is offering possibly the cheapest waterfront homes in Australia! Selling from just $136,500 for a one bedroom home (conditions apply), Pelican Shores Estate is a secure, friendly and established community for the mature aged.

Like many bab baby boomers heading to towards ke man ards retirement, you may be at the stage where you are starting to consider your future lifestyle. This is a major life decision and, after considering all the options available, more and more baby boomers are making the move into over-50s lifestyle villages like Pelican Shores Estate. At Pelican Shores you can enjoy an amazing waterfront location, downsize to hassle-free living and become part of a vibrant, active and like-minded community. You may also be able to free up extra cash to spend on the more

enjoyable things in life like travel. Another big attraction of this lifestyle option is the variety of designs and styles of manufactured homes from which to choose. Where established retirement villages often have homes that are already built and the buyer has no real opportunity to customise the design, a Pelican Shores Estate home is built in a quality controlled factory and can be easily personalised to reflect your individual tastes and needs. That means you can specify exactly what you want in your new home. An important feature for many new residents at Pelican Shores Estate is that their manufactured home and residential site has been designed to require the minimum of maintenance, leaving you free to enjoy the wonderful waterfront lifestyle on offer. We asked Andrew Hoffman of Hampshire Property Group, which is a supplier of manufactured homes to resorts in NSW and Victoria, why anyone would buy a manufactured home in a lifestyle village rather than a place in a retirement village. “That’s easy,” he answered. “When you buy a manufactured home in a lifestyle village there are minimal additional costs involved and the home design can be tailored to your specific needs. You may also be eligible for Commonwealth financial assistance and it makes better financial sense because you can avoid the additional cost of deferred management fees. In fact, the better question to ask would be, ‘Why buy in a retirement village?’”

Pelican Shores Estate gives you the freedom to lock up your home, hook up the caravan or boat and hit the open road at the drop of a hat, safe in the knowledge that the gated community, professional and caring managers and friendly neighbours will keep an eye on your home for you. Being a pet-friendly village is also a greatly appreciated benefit to our residents. Those seeking the fun and companionship that a community such as Pelican Shores Estate has to offer can take advantage of the active social committee, village facilities that include a swimming pool, and a community centre that caters for all your social and recreational requirements. Boaties can join our boat club and use the jetty and boat ramp facilities. Pelican Shores Estate is situated on the stunning shores of Corio Bay. Come and visit with our friendly sales staff; soak up the atmosphere of our beautiful waterfront location; take a stroll along the boardwalk; inspect our new homes and discover how you too can enjoy a waterfront lifestyle.

The Audi TT sports car performs BY ERIC BLAIR ew cars in modern times have created a greater stir than that caused by the radical looking Audi TT. Launched in Europe in 1998, it reached Australia in May 1999 and sold well from day one. Even when you drive an Audi TT today, over a decade after its introduction, it’s surprising how much attention it creates. The latest addition to the range comes with a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine that marks a breakthrough by offering diesel power in a high-performance sports car. Audi has been at the forefront of the growing push towards diesel cars in Australia, with more than one-third of all car sales now using this fuel. The growth is illustrated by the fact that in 2004 diesel Audis accounted for just three per cent of the German maker’s Australian sales. The current figure is 36 per cent. “We believe that diesel is the best option for the Australian market being environmentally friendly and fuel efficient,” said Audi’s general manager of marketing, Immo Buschmann. “The TT is the first all-wheel-drive sports car to have diesel technology. It has performance and strong efficiency for guilt-free motoring.” The diesel TT sports car is a direct flow-on from Audi’s success on the Le Mans 24-hour circuit. In 2006, 2007 and 2008 an Audi R10 TDI scored victories in

F

Taste the wind: The Audi TT TDI combines stunning looks with economy and performance. the world’s oldest endurance race. The successes proved two things: diesel reliability and economy. Better economy meant fewer fuel stops. The sleek little Audi sports car has 125 kW of power, which isn’t a lot, but torque is what counts in engines and this exceptional turbo-diesel produces 350 Nm all the way from 1750 to 2500 rpm.

With the Audi TT having minimal mass, at only 1370 kg, it races to 100 km/h in just 7.5 seconds. This is genuine sports car acceleration and is impressive for a car that uses so little fuel. Audi has had its fuel consumption officially measured to Australian standards at a just 5.3 litres per 100 kilometres.

Not only helping to save the air that we all breathe, but also letting it qualify for exemption from the Australian Luxury Car Tax (LCT). Stand next to the car and it is noticeably a diesel which to Australian ears seems to make it at odds with the car’s sporting heritage and appearance. At highway cruising speed it is impos-

sible to tell what is under the bonnet from an aural perspective; a petrol or diesel engine. There is some lag in the turbo-diesel, probably more so than in the turbo-petrol that’s also on offer. The initial lack of response isn’t likely to prove irritating unless you are a real control freak; the sort of person who wants it all and wants it now. The diesel engine revs easily to 5000 rpm for a few seconds if you really want to drag the last bit of power from it; whereas most diesels run out of puff at around 4500 revs. The Audi unit is nippy at low rpm so is easy to drive around town without the constant need to be changing gears. Even in sixth gear at 100 km/h the car has enough grunt for overtaking if you’re not in a big hurry. Handling feels as though it might be slightly affected by the added weight over the front wheels, but Audi’s quattro system makes it respond nicely to the steering and throttle you feed to it. The front seats support well and it’s reasonably easy to get in and out despite the low-slung body. The back seats are strictly for naughty kids or ‘friends’ you would rather not see again. The new TT TDI is a cracker of a car for which owners will find no need to apologise. However, it’s behind the wheel that the new TDI shows its true colours.

i20 targets Gen Y BY ERIC BLAIR he latest addition to the Australian Hyundai range, the i20 is a small three- or fivedoor hatchback that will eventually replace the popular, successful, Getz. Getz has been a major success for Hyundai and recently toppled the Toyota Yaris as Australia’s top-selling light car. So to have taken it off the market at this stage wouldn’t have made a lot of sense. Instead, with the Getz proving very popular with older buyers, Hyundai says it will be targeting the younger end of the market with the more stylish i20. The front of the i20 has the widemouth air intake that’s all the rage at the moment and the swooping headlights that are a feature of the ‘i’ cars. The bonnet boasts a raised central ridge with this contoured theme extending to the strongly sculpted doors. Inside, there’s good space for four adults although taller rear seat occupants may find headroom a little restricted. Rear legroom is quite acceptable for a car in this class, with seats that are comfortable and supportive. The boot can take 295 litres with the 60/40 split rear seatbacks both upright. Australian i20 models are built at Hyundai’s Chennai plant, making it one of the first mainstream cars from India to be sold in Australia. Two engines and three trim levels are offered. The entry level Hyundai i20 Active comes with a 1.4-litre petrol engine while the Elite and Premium have a 1.6-litre petrol.

T

Conventional: Only at the rear does the i20 take on a more conservative look.

Techno savvy: i20 comes with an integrated in-dash audio system that includes MP3 and WMA capability. The Elite adds a trip computer, steering wheel mounted audio controls, leather-wrapped steering wheel, front fog lights and 15-inch alloy wheels; with the top of the range Premium also getting climate control air conditioning, leather trimmed seats and 16-inch alloys. As with all Hyundai vehicles, the i20 comes with the company’s industry-leading five-year unlimited kilometre warranty.

Scooped: The front of the i20 has the wide-mouth air intake that’s all the rage at the moment and the swooping headlights that are a feature of the ‘i’ cars.

1009197-JF39-11

Both are four-cylinder units, tagged as ‘Gamma engines’ by Hyundai. Two diesel engines are available in overseas markets but Hyundai Australia has no plans to bring either here at this stage. The 1.4-litre generates 73 kilowatts of power with 136 Newton metres of torque. The 1.6 peaks at 91 kW and 156 Nm. Combined fuel consumption figures range from 6.0 litres per 100 kilometres from the 1.4-litre engine with a manual gearbox to 6.5 L/100km from an automatic 1.6. Any car aimed at the Generation Y market must be bang up to date in terms of technology and so it is with the i20. It comes with an integrated indash audio system that includes MP3 and WMA capability with an auxiliary input jack and USB input and iPod connectivity. The Active has four speakers, the Elite and Premium have six.

Self-confessed car nut Adam Gugliemi at Body Shop Paint Supplies.

FORD OWNERS For servicing and repairs with manufacturer’s warranty not affected see Geelong’s Ford Specialist.

odytek Automotive’s team has turned the high tech business of car customisation into an art form. The highly experienced crew offers transformations that deliver the “wow factor” in large doses, owner Kyle Mortimer says. Bodytek’s wide range of services will enhance not only the inside and outside of your vehicle but also under the bonnet as well. Kyle says Bodyteks exterior work is second to none and includes spray painting and standard repairs to full custom paint jobs, body kit fitting and sales and much more. It also offers custom high performance upgrades including the fitting and sales of high-end turbo charges and intercoolers, and all the extra upgrades and tuning to get the most out of any performance vehicle. Bodytek’s team has over 20 years combined experienced with high performance vehicles. The company works in conjunction with the Geelong company Teknocure in fitting specialist electronics, onboard computers, telecommunications and hands free gear, in car entertainment and GPS equipment, Kyle said. He said Bodytek opened its doors just five months ago and already is carving out a strong market presence for itself. “We specialise in Japanese and imported vehicles but as time goes on we are upgrading and individualising more local makes and models,” Kyle says. He says he offers a wide range of services to suit a wide range of budgets. “Typically our clients pay as little as $120 for a basic service and up to $50,000 or more to really stand out.” Bodytek Automotive is at 39 Fyans Street Newtown, phone 5224 2300.

From tiny scratch to complete restoration dam Gugliemi of Body Shop Paint Supplies Geelong is a self confessed “car nut”. So too, he says, is his entire staff. And this passion for all things automotive comes shining through when the team gets down to the serious business of caring for its customers. Whether it is providing services, products or a bit of good old-fashioned advice the Body Shop Paint Supplies crew put their clients first. “We want to form long term relationships and so we go that extra yard to ensure the people who walk through our door are properly looked after,” he says. The business deals with all aspects of repairing and restoring motor vehicles, from a small scratch in the paint to a complete bare metal restoration. ”We have anything and everything for fixing a car,” Adam says. The company stocks automotive tools and paints, abrasives, body fillers, polishing compounds, spray guns and air brush equipment. “We’re proud of the wide range of quality tools and panel beating supplies we stock,” he says. “We offer competitive trade prices on everything on our shelves and a free colour matching service, with or without a paint code.” The company opened its doors just five weeks ago and is already establishing an enviable market presence. Much of that has to do with the high level of personalised service the team offers. Body Shop Paint Supplies Geelong is situated at Factory 5, 131 Fyans Street South Geelong, phone 5229 1928.

sport Fishing fever hits Geelong region On the bite BRIAN LONG SEEMS finals football fever had no influence on angler numbers hitting the water this week, going by the outstanding captures. Paul Tamis made the trip down from Queensland and caught up with good mates Danny Clapinski and Rick Maes, hitting the Queenscliff Cut. They had no trouble catching both silver trevally and salmon on soft plastics while anglers close by also caught plenty of trevally. Turtleback worms and curl tail grubs were the stand out lures. Fishing the entrance to Swan Bay saw results for Geoff Holt. With the help of some berley he landed a mixed bag of garfish, whiting, flathead and trevally, all taken on pippies and fresh squid. Squid anglers found Edwards Point consistent but clearly the better results have been delivered at Hermsley and Grassy Point. Whiting captures were on the rise with many anglers reporting both size and numbers increasing by the week. St Leonards has been good, as has Grassy Point and the Bight. Anglers drifting in 15 metres of water off St Leonards found plenty of flathead. Patience is needed to fish through the small ones and those using soft plastics see the bigger fish. Snapper anglers started to see more consistent captures, with the 20 metre line off St Leonards working well – especially after dark – while Clifton Springs saw good numbers of fish to six kilos on the high tide run off. Snapper were also on offer from the inner harbour, where Ian Szkirka landed one nice fish and missed another. Seven yearold Will Bliss and 11 year-old brother Gus both landed their first big snapper off Corio Quay. Also on snapper from the outer harbour, Terry Stevens found small fish between 30 and 40cms with two better fish of two kilos taken on soft plastics from the spoil grounds off Leopold. If you are looking for some school holiday land-based fishing then try Geelong waterfront. Fish soft plastics from Cunningham Pier to Fishermans

Gotcha: Ian Szkirka with a nice Corio Bay snapper.

Made the cut: Danny Clapinski with a Queenscliff Cut silver trevally Pier and expect snapper, trevally, flathead and pike. Worm pattern lures are best with the two hours either side of high tide the peak period. Another option is to fish with small metal baitfish lures from the rocks at North Shore; pike are the target species and best sought in the two hours leading up to dusk and if its low tide, your chances are even better. Corey Gallagher made the most of his first day of school holidays at the Barwon. Fishing shrimp he landed a couple of ripper bream and later tried soft plastics, which brought success with both salmon and trevally boated. Freshwater captures on most of the lakes produced quality trout along with some big redfin. Wurdee Boluc saw both rainbow and brown trout to over a kilo, with a few redfin pushing 1.5 kilos. Lures were best with both tiger minnows and bladed lures ideal. Trolling Lake Bullen Merri, Patrick Bartlett constantly caught and released 11 fish, the best a brown estimated to weigh over two kilos. All Patrick’s fish took a liking to his tassie devil in colour number 107. Those fishing Powerbait from shore will find rainbows of

BELL Park played a remarkable last quarter of football last Sunday to take out Geelong Football League’s 2011 premiership cup. The Dragons had their backs to the wall against South Barwon at three quarter time, trailing by 27 points, but slammed on seven goals to win by six points. Winning the toss, South Barwon kicked with a four goal wind but failed to take full advantage, leading by only four points at quarter time. Bell Park also failed to take advantage of the wind when using it in the second quarter, with the Swans making all the play. The Swans were relentless around the packs and hunted in numbers to either win the ball themselves or tackle and scrag any Dragon in their way. Hard running and good foot skills brought the ball into the forward line for scores. At half time the Swans were up by 16 points and if not for the work of Dragon backman, Dean Talbot, the damage would have been a lot worse. As expected, South Barwon used the wind far better in the third quarter and forged its 27 point buffer. Such was the Swans dominance it looked like it had a few extra players on the ground as Bell Park had kicked only five goals.

Local Footy FRANK MASON The last quarter opened with a new look Bell Park forward line with ruckman Lachlan Kennedy placed in the goal square. The big man didn’t let his team mates down and took some big marks and kicked a couple of goals. Charlie Hallam also kicked a couple to complete a fine day for him as his attack on the ball in the first three quarters was one of the few shining lights for his side. Hallam was duly awarded the best on ground medal after the game. Good players for the Swans included Paul Corrigan, Casey Tutungi and Jarrod Westwood. Newtown took out the reserves flag by beating an inaccurate Bell Park by 30 points. The Dragons kicked 17 points and only five goals. Colac beat St Josephs in the under 18s by 26 points.

Tayla’s sacrifice BY ERIN PEARSON SOFTBALL champion Tayla Supple will spend Christmas on a plane as she travels around South Africa for the junior women’s softball world championships. The 19-year-old softball powerhouse has ramped up training ahead of her voyage and said sacrifices were all part of the game. “South Africa has been a big goal for a long time so I really can’t wait to head over. “It’s a big step to play international teams and we’ll be over there for almost a month.” Supple’s selection into the world championship side bolsters a stellar year for the teen who’s also gained selection into senior and junior state sides. Supple, who began softball at age five, currently travels to Melbourne to train four times a week. She made the under-19 state team earlier this year and open women’s state team just last month. The Australia Women’s under-19 squad sits third on the world ladder. “This year the team went from a squad of 32 down to 22 and then I made the last cut down to 17,” she said. “We had camps before each cut and played games against the senior Australia team. “That was great because it gave us a good indication of where our team is at and the competition we will face when we go to the worlds.” Supple said although she enjoyed all aspects of

Swinger: Tanya shows her batting style. the game, batting remained her favourite part of competition. “It’s pretty easy to raise the bat up and down but the difficult part is the mental challenges involved,” she said. “You’ve got to remain so focused on distance and timing.” Supple studies health science at Deakin University and wants to specialise in sports science. She flies out to South Africa in late November ahead of the December competition.

around a kilo, but those prepared to fish after dark with local gudgeon will find some awesome browns, some well over three kilos in weight. Anglers are reminded that a number of water foul have been found at this lake with line tangled around their legs; please ensure any discarded line is disposed of into rubbish bins found around the lake. This same practice should go for all line no matter where you fish. Keep an eye on the Barwon River in and around Geelong because redfin and brown trout are currently being caught. Ben Hutchinson nailed a fantastic trout this week, weighing in at 1.4 kilos, caught on a bibbed minnow lure. While the river is currently discoloured you will find lures are your best option. For those who can drag themselves away from the grand final this weekend, the tides are perfect for the snapper off Clifton Springs in the late afternoon until 9pm. Use fresh squid, pilchard or silver whiting and you should do well. Send reports and photos to info@raylongtackle.com.au or call in and see Brian at Ray Long’s Fishing World, 105 Shannon Ave Manifold Heights.
