Juc bid to VCAT

Pokies appeal BY ALEX DE VOS A CONTROVERSIAL plan to install 30 gaming machines at Jan Juc’s Beach Hotel is headed for Victoria’s planning tribunal. The owners have lodged an appeal with Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal after council earlier this year rejected their $4 million redevelop plans, which included the pokies. Council received 52 objections to the redevelopment, mostly against the pokies component. Resident Jeremy Ham, who is leading the push against the proposal, said he expected a tough battle at VCAT. He urged council to stand by its hotel knock-back. “Council has let us down on a lot of issues in the past but this might be a chance for councillors to redeem themselves in the eyes of the locals,” Mr Ham said. “They intend to fight strongly and we urge council to maintain its determination against the proposal.” More than 700 members have joined Mr Ham’s Facebook group, named ‘Don’t Poke Jan Juc’. Angry residents and visitors to the region have posted hundreds of comments demanding council ban pokies in Jan Juc. A petition against the proposal has collected over 100 signatures. “Community opinion is strongly against this,” Mr Ham said. He slammed the hotel owners for labelling the venue as an

“atmospheric family pub”. “They’re saying it’s a familyfriendly pub but pokies are not family-friendly,” Mr Ham said. “This is about one thing only – bringing in $2 million a year in gambling. Any statement made about child-friendly is an absolute smoke screen for the pure fact it is run by three people who want to increase their turnover.” Mr Ham likened the plight of Jan Juc residents to the Macedon Ranges town of Romsey, which recently won a Supreme Court and VCAT battle to ban 30 gaming machines from its local pub. He feared the Beach Hotel’s owners would modify their plans in the lead up to the VCAT hearing. “We’re concerned that people who live locally will end up having to live with this pub in whatever form and won’t be consulted on the changes.” Beach Hotel part-owner Anthony Closter believed the upgrade would “greatly benefit” the community. “It’s an absolute benefit to all,” he said. “It will have a function space, 36 car parks and disabled access.” Mr Closter said he could not comment on whether the hotel would revise its plans. “We haven’t decided yet but VCAT strategy is VCAT strategy and it depends on our legal advice.” The hotel has proposed returning $30,000 from annual pokies proceeds to community projects.

Oh, baby, take a look at your trophy again now

Amazed: Eileen Igoe admires her returned Star Baby trophy after its recent return. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 46598

BY ALEX DE VOS WHEN Torquay’s Eileen Igoe sold her 75-year-old trophy at a garage sale, she never thought it would be back on her shelves within two years. But with the help of a persistent friend-of-a-friend and his historian offsider, the boomerang of all trophies has been reunited with its owner. Following a whirlwind tour of Victoria’s Western District antique shops, the 1935 Maryborough Star Baby trophy was discovered under a pile of junk at a collectable store in Penshurst, just outside Hamilton. Adelaide historian Russell Smith, who stumbled upon the rusty and dusty, aged relic late last year, passed on the trophy to friend George Dellar, who tracked down Ms Igoe. “We came from Maryborough, so he called us and I told him to buy it – it was $20,” Mr Dellar explained. “We were at a school reunion in Maryborough and I put the cup on the table with a note asking if anyone knew the winner and their whereabouts. “The next day we got a phone call and this lady knew Eileen’s sister and it went from there – it’s the most fascinating story.” Ms Igoe struggled to comprehend the discovery. “I couldn’t believe it – it’s incredible,” she said. “We haven’t seen it for about 18 months.” Ms Igoe said the trophy brought back fond childhood memories. “I can still see it in Maryborough – mum had it in the lounge room on the mantelpiece. “I used to call it my Melbourne Cup and pestered mum because I wanted to drink lemonade out if it. “In the end she said ‘All right, you can have a lemonade’ but it’s never had anything stronger in it.”

Riding high: Not even dialysis treatments can stop Steve Cartin raising money for Kidney Health Australia. Picture: Tommy Ritchie

46813

Patient Steve seeks riders for cycle of kidney health BY KIM WATERS A VETERAN Geelong dialysis patient has undertaken a year-long fundraising campaign with just a bike, a helmet and a desire to raise vital funding for a charity close to his heart. Now Steve Cartin wants other bike riders to join him on his monthly ride along the Bellarine Rail Trail from Geelong to Queenscliff as he seeks to raise thousands of dollars for Kidney Health Australia. Mr Cartlin said his 70km rides were a way of “doing my bit” for a charity that had helped him through a lengthy dialysis process. “Three days a week I go to the Geelong Hospital for dialysis and I’ll do that for the rest of my life,” Mr Cartin said. “This campaign started as a way for me to celebrate my good health and raise money for a worthy cause. “Most people on dialysis are quite unwell, so being fit enough to do the

bike ride is such a great thing for me.” Mr Cartin started on dialysis nine years ago after a failed kidney transplant. “For the first few years it’s really hard and your health deteriorates quite a bit,” he said. “I’ve just recently been able to build up my fitness and I’m feeling so much better, so I wanted to celebrate that.” Mr Cartin said his rides started 9am on the last Sunday of each month at South Geelong train station. He hoped to raise $5000 for dialysis patients. Mr Cartin hoped other riders would help him tackle his fundraising challenge. “I’d really encourage as many people as possible to come along and ride with me.” Mr Cartin said prospective riding mates could contact him through www.everydayhero.com.au/stevecartin.”

Taxi rampage reveals ‘concerns’ for drivers BY ALEX DE VOS GEELONG Taxi Network has called on authorities to reform safeguards for drivers after an “experienced” cabbie allegedly wrecked the car of eggthrowing youths. Network chief executive officer Peter Valentine said the incident had “uncovered” a range of “concerns” for drivers. “Many drivers face unacceptable and unsavoury experiences with passengers who choose to treat drivers with little respect for the job they are performing and, accordingly, drivers find they’re on guard at all times,” Mr Valentine said. A Geelong taxi driver allegedly

chased four males after an egg was thrown at his car in Ryrie Street on Saturday. Police allege the driver took a tyre lever from his taxi and smashed the youth’s car. The driver, Alan Dengler later told a Melbourne newspaper he was “fed up” with years of abuse and police inaction. Mr Valentine said he was “disappointed” the driver had taken the law into his own hands. He had cancelled the driver’s approval to operate under Geelong Taxi Network. “Under no circumstances will the network support drivers who work outside of the rules and procedures or

group, named ‘Alan Dengler is a hero’, which was created by local spare parts worker Paul Williams. Mr Williams said he “really admired” the driver “who took it upon himself to do what most would so love to do, chase down and teach someone a lesson who thought they could intimidate him”. “I, too, have wanted to chase my fair share of idiots and teach them a bit of a lesson,” Mr Williams told the Independent. “The worst thing is this guy will get into trouble and the idiots who continue to get away with being disrespectful.” Police expect to charge the driver next week.

who choose to take law into their own hands,” Mr Valentine said. He urged authorities to improve safety for drivers to avoid incidents spiralling out of control. “Geelong Taxi Network is keen to pursue a better outcome via further discussions with the Victorian Taxi Directorate, police, council and politicians to minimise future incidents,” Mr Valentine said. “People have to look well beyond this incident – quite clearly something has to be done.” The incident has sparked the formation of a Facebook group but it as yet failed to rally support. Three members have joined the

Cats copper A GEELONG Football Club star from the 1960s has won a place in Victoria Police Hall of Fame for his prowess as both an officer and a sportsperson. Geoff ‘Tex’ Rosenow, who died in 1999, played for the Cats in the VFL from 1962 to 1970 and served with Victoria Police for about 31 years until 1992.

Healthy figures IMPROVED treatment figures at Geelong Hospital are evidence the service is performing “strongly”, according to Victorian Health Minister Daniel Andrews. He released figures showing gains in amount of patients treated and reduction in waiting lists during the last 60 months of 2009, including a 29 per cent increase in the number of category two semi-urgent elective surgeries.

Poacher jailed A WHITTINGTON man who tried to evade a fisheries officers’ roadblock is in jail for stealing more than 200 abalone from a beach west of Apollo Bay. Magistrate Michael Coghlan sentenced the 42year-old to two months jail with a further two suspended for 12 months, fined him $400 and ordered his car and poaching equipment to be forfeited.

Playhouse opens ARTS MINISTER Peter Batchelor has helped open the curtains on a $3 million refurbishment of a Geelong theatre.

Corio man arrested over hospital patient robberies BY ALEX DE VOS POLICE have charged a 34-year-old Corio man over the theft of valuables from patients’ bedsides at Melbourne hospitals. Carlton Police sergeant Monique Kelley said Darryn Edwards was captured on security footage at five of the city’s biggest hospitals stealing cash, phones and laptops. Sgt Kelley said police had charged Edwards with 12 counts of theft and

deception over the use of stolen credit cards. He allegedly targeted Royal Melbourne, Royal Women’s, St Vincent’s, Melbourne Private and Alfred hospitals during the stealing rampage. Sgt Kelley said Edwards preyed on patients while they were away from their beds. She described his bedside raids as “horrible”.

“You’re in hospital trying to get better and to have someone go through your room is not very nice at all,” Sgt Kelley said. “Hospital security does its best but it can’t ask everybody why they’re there.” Sgt Kelley alleged the thief struck at least 15 times since December, mainly swiping wallets and purses. Edwards was in Melbourne to purchase drugs and had a history of simi-

lar offences, she said. “He was on bail for stealing from Melbourne hospitals.” Sgt Kelley said police were also hunting his accomplice who had been identified on security footage. “We know he has a co-offender that we know of but we can’t find them.” Sgt Kelley said police arrested Edwards was arrested on April 12. He was set to appear in Melbourne Magistrate’s Court at a later date.

EVER since witnessing the first bow and arrow drawn, the uninitiated have linked the antics of a group of merry Geelong archers with the folklore of Robin Hood. But archery has been flying across the region’s landscape and hitting its target for the past half a century. Geelong Archers will celebrate its 50th anniversary this weekend at Deakin University’s Jarvis Oval, the home of a series of national champions and Olympic competitors as well as an Australian archery president for 16 years. Club reunion organiser Bill Vale expected hundreds of past members of the Geelong club to rekindle more than a few funny yarns of their halcyon days. “We’ll have a couple of targets set up, so any of the oldies who want to put a bow back they can,” Mr Vale said, “or should I say see if they can pull a bow back and shoot an arrow”. Two of the “oldies” central to the reunion will be Owen Bourke and Rex Sloane, who founded the club on May 5, 1960, after sitting enthralled watching a television documentary on archery. Back then a bow alone would cost a week’s salary

BY ANDREW MATHIESON FAMILIES that fight together, stick together. Or so they say out Lara way where four fist-throwing kids are shadowing their tough parents in karate’s best moves. A recent Victorian Kyokushin Karate Championships proved a celebration for Lara’s Riki Martial Arts school. Nicholas Crawley, whose father Kevin is a karate veteran and kickboxer, was crowned the state under-8s king. Calaih McPhail-Jans came close to emulating former national and state champion mum Lauren with a silver in the under-10 female division. Riki school instructor Nino Di Pasquale’s two children, Tahlia and Jacob, captured third in the under-10 and 12 divisions respectively. Nino was unsurprised the Lara kids were a karate chop off the old block. “I think that’s because I’m a good teacher,” he laughed. “I also think it’s because there’s a real community feel to how we train. “With most of the kids here, their parents train as well with us and I think that enables confidence in their children. “It’s a real family club.”

Avalon pushing ahead with international bid “Now that we have two players out there, it does lay the stronger foundations for future growth.” Avalon Airport is proposing a facelift to existing facilities to attract more airlines, but a deal struck with Malaysian budget carrier Air Asia X fell through when Federal Government knocked back plans for an international terminal in 2008. Mr Fox said Linfox’s long-term strategy still remained to fly overseas to “add value into the asset”, which included building a hotel to service the airport. Avalon planned to continue pushing for an international terminal but was prepared to send travellers through its

But Mr Fox denied that inadequate security was behind the failed bid to win federal support for an international terminal. Member for Corio Richard Marles recently suggested the airport would need to improve security for customs, immigration and quarantine requirements. Roger Henning, a security expert, publicly identified Avalon at the top of a list of Australian regional airports vulnerable to threats of security breaches. “It’s got nothing to do with security,” Mr Fox said. “We have exceed all security levels within the environment required.”

domestic facility, he said. “We’re identifying the best opportunities at the moment. “We need to build a new facility – if we can create a multi-user, domestic/international terminal then we’ll do so, just whatever is the most cost-effective at the time.” Airport general manager Justin Giddings revealed to the Independent in December that Avalon would consider a one-user terminal plan for both domestic and overseas flights. Discussions with Federal Government after failing to secure approval for an international airport had led to a “compromise” on the terminal, he said.

Linfox airports executive chairman David Fox said Tiger Airway’s decision to fly out of Avalon Airport had consolidated plans for a facility expansion. Mr Fox revealed Jetstar put petty rivalry between the low-cost airlines aside to make Avalon work better. “They see true value in the asset and they have been really supportive of us expanding the presence to other airlines like Tiger,” he said.

Brumby Labor â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;rolls out the pork barrellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; BY ALEX DE VOS CASH for a bypass link to Surf Coast Highway and land for a new hospital at Armstrong Creek have spearheaded a $170 million funding injection for Geelong. State Government announced the budget allocations this week as it prepares for elections in November. The budgetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s local funding focus on the marginal Labor-held seat of South Barwon drew allegations of pork-barrelling from the opposition. Premier John Brumby announced $77 million for the bypass link as the big-ticket item for Geelong in the 2010/2011 state budget. Mr Brumby also revealed a $33.6 million pledge to buy land for a southern suburbs health hub and to expand acute and intensive care at Geelong Hospital as central to the Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spending spree in the region. The Government also allocated $4.3 billion to fund a Regional Rail Link project, which would deliver standalone tracks for Geelong train services. Funding for local school projects included $13 million for stage two of the Western Heights Secondary College redevelopment and $9 million for upgrading Manor Lakes P-12 Specialist College. Other big ticket items for the region included: $10.4 million to begin developing public facilities at Armstrong Creek; $10 million for a Corio Norlane regeneration project; $25 million for a

Greens â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;backâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bid for hot rock plant BY ALEX DE VOS THE GREENS have backed plans to create Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first renewable geothermal energy hub at Gherang, according to a party MP. Greens MP Greg Barber said he â&#x20AC;&#x153;fully supported geothermal power, subject to environmental effects being minimisedâ&#x20AC;?. Mr Barber said he planned to meet with the company behind the project, Greenearth Energy, for more information about the proposal. However, Gherang resident Jamie McInnes said Mr Barber expressed his concerns about the local project during a visit to the region last month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Greens are concerned about the adverse impact this

development may have on the government-recognised threatened flora and fauna of the Gherang region and neighbouring Angahook-Lorne State Forest,â&#x20AC;? Mr McInnes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gherang residents are appreciative of the Greensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ongoing scrutiny of this inappropriate geothermal development.â&#x20AC;? Greenearth Energyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Robert King welcomed the Greensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are pretty supportive and were interested in utilising the warm water before we put it underground for local industrialised opportunities,â&#x20AC;? he said. Residents in opposition to the geothermal project fear the plant could contaminate drinking water and lead to other danger-

ous impacts such as earthquakes. A geothermal project in Switzerland was shut down in 2006 when work was blamed for earthquakes that shook the nearby town of Basel. Opponents say hot water from geothermal energy sources can also release dangerous chemicals including mercury, boron and arsenic. The Independent revealed last year that the region was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;potential targetâ&#x20AC;? for geothermal power. Greenearth Energy investigated the area for â&#x20AC;&#x153;wet hot rocksâ&#x20AC;? beneath the ground to generate renewable, green energy. Initial tests found potential to produce 150 times more energy than Victoria uses in a year.

March 15: Protest begins. Tapping geothermal energy requires deep drilling into the Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crust.

‘Worst house’ in City battle

1000s

BY ANDREW MATHIESON A RAT-INFESTED vacant house allegedly used for drug dealing is at the centre of a council battle for control of dilapidated properties around Geelong. City Hall has demanded that Victorian Government authorities hand over powers to seize the house, which councillors have labelled one of Geelong’s most neglected homes. They said the neglect was so bad that the last tenant’s final meal was still sitting decomposed on a table inside the house five years later. Ward councillor Stretch Kontelj said the property’s Melbourne owner had refused to take responsibility since the tenant deserted the Herne Hill house. Neighbours had been complaining for years but the City had hit a wall trying to achieve a “reasonable solution” with the owner.

of local bargains in a traditional newspaper

EVERY FRIDAY From l ONLY a c o l r you gent 1.50 a s w Ne

“The owner is evasive and hasn’t at all been responsive to council requests to tidy up, so various notices have been served over the years to secure the property but the notices have been ignored.” Cr Kontelj regarded the property as one of Geelong’ most dilapidated residences and the worst he had seen in a decade on council. Police had told him that after they arrested the last occupant over unpaid rent the house had become an unoccupied “drug den”. “I’m concerned about the health and safety issues, the criminal activity that’s going on and the vermin that runs from the property, which is about to run out of control,” Cr Kontelj said. “It’s decaying, it’s overgrown with bushes and trees and it’s falling into complete rack and ruin. “We’re also concerned it could be set alight and danger other homes in the neighbourhood.”

Cr Kontelj said the Government should allow the City to compulsorily acquire similar abandoned and dilapidated properties. The City could then sell the homes to help ease Geelong’s housing shortage, he said. Councillors were lobbying Municipal Association of Victoria to seek council powers to claim abandoned buildings on private property. Cr Barbara Abley said by-law officers had found examples of vermin infestation and other factors that “may prove unsafe for the public”. “We’ve hit a brick wall because there is not very much we can do at all,” she said. “At the moment, we don’t have the legal tools to do it. “It’s not that we haven’t tried – we have tried every avenue.”

Talented trio vie for place in Star Search grand final HAYLEY Driden, Lilli Campbell and Olivia Brooks-Meagher set their sights high this week when they auditioned for Powercor Star Search. The year 11 Christian College students, who perform Latin, jazz and contemporary ballads as an ensemble, were keen to impress the adjudicators and win a place in the grand final. An impressive performance will earn the threesome a place in the Star Search grand final at Geelong’s waterfront Costa Hall on May 29. The girls recently returned from 10 days in Hawaii where they performed and attended workshops at a Pacific Basin Music Festival. Olivia said their music teacher encouraged them to get as much performance experience as possible leading up to their VCE exams. “At this stage it’s a hobby for us as we get ready for VCE exams but it’s always fantastic experience to perform in front of an audience and adjudicators,” she said.

BELOW average rain was recorded across most of Geelong’s urban area during April. However, the city’s north-western suburbs, such as Bell Post Hill, recorded 46.2mm, which was above average for April. Geelong Airport had 34mm, which was 12mm short of the average. Nevertheless, accumulated rain since January shows a total in Geelong of 142mm, fractionally above the average figure for this time of year of 139mm. The wettest 24 hours for the month recorded 12.4mm at the airport by 9am on April 7. The region’s Otways catchment received average falls, with 95mm at West Barwon. For the first four months of the year, accumulated rainfall finished well above average but, despite this, catchments remain stable at 28.7 per cent of capacity. The outlook for May is reasonably good, with some private forecasters predicting the likelihood of above-average rain. Bureau of Meteorology’s three-monthly outlooks have consistently been neutral or pessimistic for this region in autumn but they are often wrong and cannot be taken seriously by farmers or water managers. Geelong Airport was approximately 1.9C above its 19-year average for April. The daily maximum of 30.2C, recorded on April 20, was the only day over 30C. The month’s highest minimum was 16.9C on April 24, while the coldest minimum, 5.4C, was on the 26th. The average daily maximum was 21.7C, compared to the April average of 20.2C. The average minimum was 11.7C, compared to the normal 9.4C. The figures show the month was one of Geelong’s warmest Aprils but not as hot as 2005 at Geelong Airport or 1971 and 1968 at North Geelong. Our warm April was also the sixth consecutive warmer-than-average month. • Lindsay Smail operates Geelong Weather Services, phone 5241 5332.

Do you need a Working with Children Check?

Furry friends: Rosalind McFadyen with Angus and Milo on her family’s Little River property. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 46622 to walk from one end of the house to the other without an oxygen tank. Animals are her escape. During one trip to the hospital, TV vet Katrina Warren presented a sick Ros with an honorary diploma in veterinary science on hearing of her knowledge and dedication to the animal cause. “I did teach her something about Labradors,” Ros says with pride. “Katrina thought Labradors’ original purpose was to bring ducks in but, no, actually they bought in the fisherman’s nets and caught the fish that jumped out.” Ros spends most of her days in front of a series of David Attenborough DVDs or scanning the internet for every possible animal fact and figure. Her knowledge extends to an advice column for locals in Little River News Review.

Ros’s drawings of her dogs formed the basis of a 2008 calendar she designed to raise more than $14,000 for animal charities. “I used to have an art therapist who came out, so I took a dog picture first one night and I came up with the idea,” Ros explains. Jirrahlinga Wildlife Sanctuary was so impressed that it named the $10,000 donated new animal hospital Rosalind’s Animal Recovery Centre. Shire of Wyndham, which neighbours City of Greater Geelong, had no hesitation in announcing Ros its 2009 youth of the year. While always fighting to survive against the odds, Ros holds more concern about saving the lives of animals. She was the brainchild of a big pond in the family backyard to attract tadpoles to the environment. “We’re getting spotted marsh

frogs and eastern banjo frogs now, which are pretty cute,” Ros smiles. The qualified wildlife carer then opened the spacious Little River backyard to two possums suffering smoke inhalation from the Black Saturday bushfires. The list of adopted animals is so long now that there are no favourites. “I like everything, every animal,” Ros says. “You also have a huge bird aviary,” Merryn reminds her. “Oh, yes, I love birds, too,” Ros replies. She likes to sit out the back watching in amazement as more than 50 birds of different species fly around inside the aviary. Of course, Ros laughs about having to clean out the poo from their cages. “That’s mum’s job,” she grins.

LITTLE River’s Rosalind McFadyen snaps her fingers and Milo – one of her two Labradors – edges towards a teenager’s wheelchair, sits down in front and looks up longingly. “You be good,” she commands. Angus, her other faithful companion, quickly follows and obeys Ros on just a fleeting glance. She has complete control over the loving pets. Fighting a terminal illness is unfortunately out of her hands. But the 17-year-old is winning her battle, somewhat. Born with the Ivemark syndrome, a congenital disorder in which organs are misoriented, doctors gave baby Ros little chance to survive past her first few days. Since that grim diagnosis, she has become the only Australian with the condition to live past two years. Her arms, now covered with sores from her blood’s low oxygen saturation levels, tell of her lifetime of battle. That’s only half the story. Ros shies away when talking about having no spleen, half a heart, a deformed liver, two right-sided lungs and a stomach on the wrong side of her body. Mum Merryn steps in, proudly boasting of Ros’s fighting spirit. “It’s hard to get my head around that she is actually still here,” Merryn says. “It’s miracle she’s still alive the hospital can’t believe it.” The disorder is too complex for heart or lung transplants and a few close calls have put her life in danger. These days she is often wheelchair-bound, struggling

ARE WE living in a Monty Python sketch? Surf Coast Shire wants to consult with Jan Juc residents about Torquay Golf Club harvesting rainwater from Jan Juc Creek. Sounds admirable but when it comes to charging the same residents for footpaths they really don’t want, council ignores their views (Independent, April 30). There have been vastly more concerns expressed about the footpaths than rainwater harvesting but our council continues to ignore them. Harvesting rainwater is government policy and the shire’s own people have suggested it may actually help the creek. What is wrong with our council? The RACV wants to develop a first-class facility that can only help the Surf Coast. This isn’t just about golf club members the course and club facilities will be avail-

BEDDING WAREHOUSE

Support RACV THE COMMUNITY and Surf Coast’s council should get behind the RACV in its endeavours to create a resort at Torquay Golf Club (Independent, April 30). This RACV launched this project with much enthusiasm, committing over $90 million to provide accommodation and a course upgrade. The benefits for Torquay are huge, with not only provision of a first-class course but a top-of-the-range clubhouse and a convention centre. The address, 1 Great Ocean Road, will become the jewel in Torquay’s crown, supplying hundreds of jobs and a great venue for residents to socialise and play golf on a course the likes of which the town could not afford. Unfortunately, the RACV has found many obstacles that have delayed the project for a long time. The RACV has accepted these but the major frustration, which has brought the project to a halt, is opposition to the harvesting of stormwater from Jan Juc streets. With prolonged drought, everyone has remarked about the plethora of valuable water running off our streets straight into the sea. Great Ocean Road Coast Committee has even investigated catching it in an underground storage to water the foreshore. The RACV has produced a plan to do just that in Jan Juc for the golf course but again faces frustration as council delays making a decision. The RACV is trying to give Torquay a wonderful asset. How much frustration it can take only the RACV can answer. Council needs to get behind the RACV and allow it to give us something special. Spencer Leighton Torquay

FRONTLINE operational police will be shaking their heads in disbelief at John Brumby’s cynical police funding package. For years Mr Brumby and Police Minister Bob Cameron claimed that Victorian police enjoyed “record” funding. Meanwhile, chronic police shortages hampered efforts by our hard-working frontline officers to address increasing levels of crime and violent assaults in our state. The Productivity Commission says Victoria has the fewest police per capita of all states in Australia and our per capita spending on police services is the lowest. Police have been battling rising crime in Victoria for years. In the past 10 years violent crime has increased 70 per cent and assaults 40 per cent. Throughout Victoria, police have battled this rising tide of violence while being told by Mr Brumby that all is well. After a decade of inaction, Mr Brumby’s police announcement is an admission of failure and a late attempt to play catch-up to the coalition on law and order. Peter Ryan Shadow police minister

the influence of the oil or automotive industries, has accepted we have destabilised our climatic systems and need to reverse the trends. Is it just a coincidence we are experiencing so many extreme temperature records, so many cyclones, earthquakes and volcanoes at a time when we are dumping record amounts of carbon dioxide and methane into our atmosphere? There are strong parallels between the smoking-and-lung-cancer debate and the global-warming debate. Tobacco companies managed to find socalled scientists happy to endorse the safety of cancer-inducing products. Are oil companies any less resourceful or desperate? Who has the most to lose in weaning our planet off cheap oil energy? Conversely, what could be the motive for rational people, who Mr Williams would call alarmists, merely inventing a problem with our atmosphere? Sensible people all over the world have come to the conclusion that the twin issues of peak oil and climate change require that we plan for an energy transition from dirty, damaging fossil fuels to a cleaner, healthier future using renewable energy. Is the desire for a cleaner, safer world being alarmist or just prudent? Would the fishing community of the Gulf of Mexico welcome more oil exploration? Stuart McCallum Bannockburn

AFTER reading the Independent April 23 story headlined ‘Concession calls as pensioners brace for water hike’, I felt I needed to state my opinion on the issue. My husband and I are both in receipt of Centrelink pensions and after the State Government concession was deducted our water account was $110.25. Our water consumption was 19kl, which amounted to $30.94 of the above amount. In my opinion, what is killing us is the service charge, not the water price. I am incensed that $79.31 of my Barwon Water account is for service charges and the remaining $30.94 is the actual amount for water used. It is a similar case with the smart meter charge for electricity. Why do we have to pay for something we haven’t even received? On phoning State Government’s hotline, I found the staff were as helpful as toilet door knockers and seemingly with lesser knowledge than us. “Oh”, they said, “your service-to-property charge has been reduced”. Well, yes, by a few dollars but before the smart meter charge was part of my bill the service charge was $46.65. Now with the smart meter charge the amount has increased to $55, so double-dipping is occurring. It is unfair that households across Victoria without smart meters are being charged. We may not have one installed for years, so just keep ripping us off. Our belts are now pulled so tightly it’s causing strangulation. Julie Clark Norlane

He also claimed an absence of community complaint. Recently he enthused that the motocross national series’ visit to Geelong “will inject hundreds of thousands of dollars into the local economy”. The facts are: • the community accepts McAdam Park’s historical operation but strongly objects to development and questions the extent of usage rights under the planning scheme; • significant McAdam Park infrastructure appears to lack necessary permits; • the motocross national series was relocated from Barrabool to Broadford, with Motorcycling Australia citing a “wide range of matters in compliance and regulations”; and • there is no published evidence of McAdam Park’s economic performance. The community is seeking relief in Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. In the meantime, Mr Crutchfield should cease his inaccurate commentary about McAdam Park.

Rudd’s death tax IF KEVIN Rudd’s new cigarette tax on three million smokers is going to make them give up smoking, why is he factoring in $5 billion dollars in extra revenue over the next four years? Government rhetoric would indicate bad times ahead for the tobacco industry in the name of health. However, Mr Rudd’s financial advice seems to indicate otherwise – good times ahead for government wealth. I’m not a smoker but history tells us that increasing tax on cigarettes does not stop people taking up the habit. However, it does deliver substantial revenue windfalls. When has a government ever introduced a tax motivated by a plan to reduce revenue? If one thing is certain, smokers in time may forget the Rudd Government’s extra tax grab but the new packaging will be a constant reminder to three million smoking voters as they gaze down on those new, insulting, ugly cigarette packets just before they walk into polling booths. Does Mr Rudd think three million smoking voters will hold a grudge? This might be another whacking the great visionary didn’t see coming. Ron Humphrey Torquay

Last week: The Independent reports on the white supremacist group.

Just ignore racists I WAS horrified to see the front-page banner headline and full-page story in last week’s Independent. My concern was not so much that a racist and ignorant group of people wanted to express their foolish attitudes but rather that the Independent would give such coverage to this group. We live in a multicultural community and I delight in the fact that people want to come to this wonderful, free and vibrant country. I acknowledge the freedom we all have to express our views. We also have the great freedom to practice and live out our religious beliefs, which I don’t deny to this group of illinformed people but for their leader to claim the title of Reverend was ludicrous. It would be far better for the whole community if the media gave no coverage to this group whatsoever. Bishop Peter Danaher All Saints Anglican Parish of Newtown and Geelong West

important upgrade. The new ramp will be welcomed by all involved in enjoying life on the water, not least the people who will launch 20,000 boats there each year. It is an important gain for the enjoyment and safety of recreational boating. We are pleased Torquay Angling Club is already preparing its next funding request, as there is plenty more to be done. The Government’s recent commitment to the Boating Safety and Facilities grants program gives us reason to hope for other much-needed improvements. It is evident the Government appreciates the value of these facilities not only for the safety and enjoyment of boating but for the economic contribution that boating makes to our coastal towns. It is pleasing Mr Pallas and others have cut through the red tape of multiple government agencies for this vital improvement in marine infrastructure. This can-do approach holds great promise for the many boat ramps in need of improvement or replacement around Victoria. Clyde Batty Boating Industry Association of Victoria

AS A concerned resident of Gherang, I would appreciate an answer from the Gherang Community and Environment Group (GCEG) to a question I am constantly asked: what is GCEG’s position on the geothermal power project proposal? I’m told GCEG has no position, which I find hard to believe since it was formed after a community meeting to fight the proposal. GCEG has had 10 weeks to make its position known and fight for the community. No one would want a 10-acre power plant on or near their property. In its newsletter, GCEG said it was taking the lead in a “representation and/or negotiation role with respect to the protection and enhancement of the environment, social well-being, amenities and neighbourhood character of the Gherang hamlet”. Would GCEG please explain where the amenities will be built? Will they be a toilet block, a bus shelter or maybe a public barbecue at Modewarre Memorial Hall? GCEG has also claimed in its newsletter that it will apply for government funding, which I can only assume is for the aforementioned amenities. Of course, GCEG can’t apply for government funding to fight the government, can it? I’m so confused. Is GCEG fighting the geothermal threat or has it become a progress association by another name? Gherang residents would be grateful if GCEG can publicly declare its position now. Marlene Hart Gherang

Green on governance CALL IT a healthy cynicism but the roles of Tasmanian Greens Nick McKim and Cassy O’Connor within David Barlett’s shaky hold on governance may indeed not be all they’re cracked up to be. Have Mr McKim and Ms O’Connor any hope of influencing Greens policies within such an historic, timber-compromised succession of governance? Tasmania arguably represents the nation’s finest all-inclusive tourism product. While it continues to be promoted internationally in a lacklustre manner and providing that its natural assets, historical components and quality nondestructive primary industries are preserved, its tourism and agricultural upside remain open ended. What has been disappointing is that the Greens haven’t achieved governance within their own right because it’s within the party’s gambit that the state’s future lies. The timber industry, led by Gunn’s and blinkered timber workers, needs to realise that a bigger and better future resides with tourism. Richard Worland Manifold Heights

Anu stage for pop star BY ALEX DE VOS STEPPING out as an indigenous Motown singer who travels to warn-torn Vietnam with her three sisters has been an inspirational experience for Torres Strait Islander performer Christine Anu. The voice behind Australian pop hit My Island Home described her role as Gail McCrae in Tony Briggs’ criticallyacclaimed musical The Sapphires as a “privilege and an honour”. Anu, who emerged as a pop artist on Australia’s musical landscape in 1993, told the Independent she had never been involved in anything like The Sapphires despite 17 years of stage experience. “I’ve done musical theatre but I’ve never been involved in a mostly indigenous cast and content,” Anu explained. “I’ve found the whole thing a privilege and honour to be apart of. “It has also been so inspirational – it’s a big struggle for Aboriginal people and these women have so much courage to go after what they dream about.” The Sapphires follows the true story of four singing Koori sisters who travel to Vietnam in search of fame and fortune. “They decide to enter a talent quest at St Kilda’s Tiki Club, which is run by a self-proclaimed

mover and shaker who offers to take them on a tour of Vietnam,” Anu said. “The two younger sisters say ‘Let’s do it’ but Gail reminds them there’s a war going on. “They eventually go but not without Gail saying ‘You can come along on these conditions’.” Anu nominated a highlight of the production as the “unique” blend of Australian Aboriginal language with “polished” 1960s movement and song. “What I love about it is that there’s a lot of Aboriginal language but you can understand the context,” she said. “I really love the polished slickness of the ‘60s, the chorography, movement and everything about it. “The performance and sound is just fantastic.” Anu, who performs alongside Casey Donovan, Holly Andrew and Kylie Farmer, labelled the combination of talent “really great”. “Casey’s experience in this realm is zero and you wouldn’t think it – she’s comfortable in her own skin and the role she plays is hilarious,” Anu said. The Sapphires will feature in Geelong Performing Arts Centre’s refurbished Playhouse theatre from Wednesday to May 15.

Tour of duty: Christine Anu stars in The Sapphires at Geelong Performing Arts Centre next week.

BY ALEX DE VOS MELBOURNE songstress Sianna Lee will showcase tracks from her debut solo album Phoenix Propeller in Geelong next week. The former Love Outside Andromeda frontwomen said audiences could expect a “high-quality gig” featuring instrumentalist Jess Cornelius. Lee told the Independent she was anxious to star touring again. “I’m really looking forward to playing the songs live.” The album has received rave reviews, with fans on Lee’s Myspace page described the new tracks as “brilliant”. Lee said the album documented “the emotional fall out of a band gone wrong, love gone wrong and the decision to not become a single mother at the age of 26”. “It’s not a playful or light-hearted attempt at a first solo record – they are an uncomfortably honest collection of songs that I never really thought would be released.” Lee will perform at the National Hotel next Thursday.

The Gordon launches $3.9m library Victorian first in TAFE technology new library at The Gordon’s East Geelong campus opened in late April with locallydeveloped, cutting-edge technology the first of its kind at a Victorian TAFE Institute. The library is part of a new $3.9 million facility funded by the Victorian Government and The Gordon. The library houses a flexible learning area, meeting rooms and a campus bookshop to cope with The Gordon’s increasing student numbers, which exceeded 17,000 across both Geelong campuses in 2009. A striking, geometrical design creates an innovative, landmark building on Boundary Road to give the 14-hectare East Geelong campus a strong signature style. At the heart of the innovative design is a Radio Frequency Identification Device (RFID) that provides for streamlined and speedy self-checkout. The system was developed by Breakwater-based FE Technologies, a division of Express Promotions. The FE Technologies Smart Library system is an Australian state-of-the-art RFID technology for libraries. Compatible with most existing library data storage and transfer facilities, the RFID system enables speedy, simple and user-friendly library transactions for library staff and borrowers, including self checkout, check-in, returns, on-hold items, stock-take and daily shelf management. Next month a project to install wireless internet access across all campuses for students and staffs is expected to be completed, continuing The Gordon’s push for facilities offering leading-edge innovation and technology.

eelong Aquatic Centre continues to lead in the development of baby and toddlers learn-to-swim programs in the Geelong area. Owner/managers Debbie and Geoff Gill know how important it is for staff to be kept up to date with current trends in teaching through in-servicing and attending conferences. They are both attending an Australian Swimming Coaches and Teaches Association international conference in Queensland this week, which includes a presentation from Debbie. Debbie took three baby and toddler teachers to a pre-conference professional development day in Brisbane with guru of baby swimming Laurie Lawrence and his staff. Laurie, Debbie and Geoff are passionate about all children learning to swim. Water familiarisation classes begin from birth in the bath to beginning formal lessons from four months of age in developmentally-age-appropriate classes continuing through until children can swim at least 400 metres without stopping. Both Laurie and Debbie firmly believe that parents should still be in the water with their children until they are four years of age because the children get far more practice time and learn and retain skills faster.

Join the circus ircus arts is an interesting and enriching subject to integrate into school curriculums. However, finding ways to introduce circus arts into every subject can be difficult. Geelong’s KidsPlace can help schools identify focus areas and possible activities to help teachers get a headstart in planning for the addition of circus arts. When studying circus arts, students participate in creative activity of their own to understand and engage with the artistic, cultural and intellectual work of others. As Geelong’s only locally owned and operated circus and

acrobatic school, KidsPlace combines the core elements of gymnastic skills with fun circus acrobatic performing apparatus. Students learn how to perform with everything from unicycles, contortions and aerial silk programs through to diving hoops, ’saults, tumbling and much more. KidsPlace students had a fantastic result in 2009, participating and performing at Geelong Performing Arts Centre as part of the city’s annual Poppy Kettle Festival. The students also earned rave reviews for their performances on Geelong’s waterfront during a Family Fun Day on January 1.

Earlier this year a KidsPlace student auditioned and performed on Channel 7’s Australia’s Got Talent. With all its excellent feedback, KidsPlace circus school will have more performance opportunities coming up in Melbourne and Geelong. Many opportunities are available for gymnasts and dancers to expand and develop their careers in professional ways while experiencing performing on big stages. Parents and prospective students are advised to keep an eye on KidsPlace, which is planning more programs for Geelong residents.

H

fry, ham steak and pineapple and satay beef. Chef Malcolm Beattie, the Dragon’s Den offers a convenient, tasty and affordable lunch. “We try to make it quick and easy because a lot of people are on lunch break and want to get in and out.” Other cheap $10 meals include steak sandwiches, open beef or Cajun burgers and honey and mayo chicken wraps. Malcolm says favourite dishes for either lunch or dinner include

garlic scallops and prawn dishes, veal scallopini, Atlantic salmon and chicken parmagiana. Children’s meals range from $6 or $8 and come with a free dessert. Malcolm says all the meals are great value for families or anyone else on a budget. “We’re not necessarily upmarket but we’re not doing just sausages and eggs, either,” he says.

ON BEHALF of Cancer Council Victoria, I thank and congratulate all who helped make Geelong Relay For Life a wonderful success. Over 1200 people came together for 24 memorable hours to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost and to fight back against the disease. The community must feel extremely proud of its achievements, with an expected $200,000 to be raised to fight cancer. Relay For Life sees teams of locals taking turns to walk or run overnight to raise funds. Events are held at approximately 40 metropolitan and regional communities across Victoria each year, making it the cancer council’s largest fundraiser. The united community spirit and passion shown by participants never fails to inspire and this was certainly the case in Geelong. I’m sure the Survivors and Carers Walk, the opening lap of the event, and the candlelight ceremony to honour loved ones lost will remain in the minds of many for some time to come. Staging an event such as Relay For Life would be

letters Volunteers thanked

impossible without the organising committee volunteers who ensure the event gets off the ground. I thank all committee members for their extraordinary efforts in promoting, organising and running the event, led by Anne Miller and Christopher McAvaney. The proceeds will help locals through the funding of prevention programs as well as support services such as Cancer Council Helpline, 131 120. Funds will also enable research to help us better understand how to prevent, treat and ultimately defeat cancer. David Hill Cancer Council Victoria

Still livin’ in the ’70s A

chance meeting in the surf at Urquhart’s Bluff during Easter, 2008, led Volkswagen fanatic Dee Gray to buy a run-down old VW camper van begging for a makeover. Dee had already completed an original restoration on a VW Beetle. “I saw the old Kombi parked at the beach and while I was waiting for waves I started talking to this surfer who owned it. He said it had been in his family for 26 years and was originally owned by his father.” Dee asked whether he would sell the Kombi. “He wanted too much money. I think he was asking about $500,” Dee remembered. “ I thought it would be a good restoration project but not at that price. Then about six months later I got a call from a friend who knew the Urquhart’s Bluff surfer and said the 1977 model Kombi was now on the market for $800.” “The surfer’s name was Daniel Hanlon, from Altona, so I called him and he told me the old van was on its last legs and was overheating badly.” “We went up to Altona, had a look at it and I bought it on the spot. “My theory on old Kombis is that if you can pick up a van in any sort of condition they’re all going to take the same amount of time and money to fix up.” Dee’s brother arranged a flat-top tow truck to pick up the Kombi and bring it back to her South Geelong backyard.

“I rang my trusted mechanic and VW expert Henk and he came around and gave it a quick look over and diagnosed the problem,” she recalled. “VWs have two dip sticks and one is wired up to the oil cooler, so the problem was that both dip sticks were not calibrated and it was showing a false overheating signal - it was just all wired up wrong.” Dee said little bits of rust were in all the panel corners and in the lower panels but the body was straight. “I had a good project to start with,” she said, “plus the price was right, so I could afford to spend more to get the van just right.” The Kombi spent six months at an Anglesea panel-beating firm, which Dee described as the VW experts in the region. “These guys specialise in VWs and they’ve done lots of splitties (spilt-screen Kombi vans) restorations and they really know their stuff.” The Kombi spent nearly six months at the panel beaters. “I had to get two new front doors that were badly rusted out and fit them,” Dee said. She also replaced all the rubber door seals and rubbers right round the van with genuine German seals. “I also decided to change the colour of the upperhalf and the roof. Originally it was a yellow-ochre colour all over, what Volkswagen called Marinogelb, but I changed the roof colour to a Volkswagen off-white. “I had a lot of powder coating done and I was able to colour-match the bumper bars with the roof colour. “The original wheels came with it but I’m a bit of a tip rat and I found set of Outlaws wheels a few months earlier. These are like a poor man’s Sunraysias and

Surf mobile: Dee Gray with her 1977 VW Kombi and a couple of genuine Vic Tantau balsa boards. were made down in Fyansford.” Dee had the wheel’s colour-matched as well. “I also had the original pair of front Hair Raiser spotlights that were sold with the Kombi but the reflectors were too corroded, so I managed to match a set of Holden reflectors that fitted inside the original Hair Raisers. I had the outsides polished and they came up like new.” Dee pointed out that the correct model name of the Kombi was Camp-mobile. “They were built in Australia in the 1970s as Micro-buses and the campers were converted by various firms around Australia like Swagman, Sunliner, Tracker,” she said. “Mine was converted by a company called Eisopru in Blair Athol, South Australia.” Dee’s Kombi still carries the original Eisopru window sticker. “Fortunately, the camper conversion hadn’t been butchered as many of them are, so I have only had to clean up the parts and recover the bed.” Inside, Dee has retained the original camp-mobile features including a hotplate stove, an Esky-style refrigerator, a mini-wardrobe, a pop top and an upper bed. Since finishing the restoration she has won a couple of trophies at local and national car shows for the Kombi but these day she prefers to just enjoy driving and using it as a camper. “I don’t have the best Kombi in the world, but it’s mine.” Dee offered a tip to any one wanting to live the dream and do-up a Kombi. “Get the cheapest you can buy or the one in the worst condition. They can be brought back to life easily because all the re-manufactured parts and panels are available from most VW dealers and over the internet,” Dee advised. “Don’t even bother welding and bogging up panels, just get replacements and fit them – it works out a lot cheaper.” Dee has been a Volkswagen fan since childhood. “I’ve loved VWs since I was a kid. It was the dune buggies at first and the surf scene that got me into Kombis especially.” So what does she think of the latest crop of Volkswagens?. “They don’t blow my hair back,” Dee said. “To me a real VW has got to be air-cooled and have no air-conditioning.”

dent repairs with Geelong Aus Dent us Dent has been servicing the Geelong area for the past eight years, offering paintless dent repair as a cost effective way of repairing vehicle dents and dings that have not cracked or chipped paintwork.

The technique is relatively new to Australia but has been used by European car manufacturers like Mercedes Benz and BMW for more than 20 years.

sport Eagles feel the crunch GEELONG Football League plays round five games tomorrow and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already crunch time for some clubs. South Barwon, Lara, St Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bell Park and Leopold have set their seasons on track to finals appearances with at least three out of four victories. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not panic time for the rest yet but if they start dropping games from now on itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be very hard to make up ground. Newtown is one such club with a record so far of only one victory, leaving it in ninth spot. Tomorrow the Eagles host Leopold and anything less than victory will just about see their season over. Jacob Spolding and the returning Rob Condy and Nick Spolding have fitted in nicely at Elderslie Reserve and complement the talents of Michael Bright, Brock Bouch and Dave Jelbert. Despite a poor-win-loss ratio so far this year, it must be noted the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; losses have only been by narrow margins. Leopold has only lost once and that was to Joeys last week by only two points. The Lions would be disappointed about the loss but shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be because they have definitely improved this season. This will be a close one and if a bit of luck goes Newtownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way it will get over the line by a few points. Other selections: Colac v ST MARYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S, Grovedale v BELL PARK, LARA v North Shore, SOUTH BARWON v St Albans, ST JOSEPHS v West Saints.

BFL Undoubtedly, Bellarine Football Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game of round is at Queenscliff where the top-placed Coutas host second-placed Drysdale. For Queenscliff to be on top of the ladder is exciting for all Bellarine league followers because Torquay, Amateurs or Drysdale have held the competitionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top spot for years. Leading lights are Edward Grout, Dan Gibbs, Josh Evans and Josh Lawson in a side with few weaknesses. Drysdale is pumped at the moment and well-placed to add the 2010 premiership cup to the one it won last year. Last week the Hawks belted premiership aspirant Amateurs to the tune

Local Footy FRANK MASON of 34 points. Queenscliff still has a bit to prove, with many still doubting itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a serious challenger. Proving the sceptics wrong is exactly what they will do as the Coutas win. Other selections: Anglesea v OCEAN GROVE, Portarlington v TORQUAY, Barwon Heads v MODEWARRE, Newcomb v AMATEURS.

GDFL Anakie and Thomson meet at Anakie Reserve tomorrow in Geelong and District Football Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s match of the day. The Roos have won their last two games and sit only one game shy of the top five in eighth spot. This is a good performance for a club that has battled for the last few seasons. The appointment of Daryl Bisset as coach has played dividends, with the side looking big and fit. Recruits Nathan Bisset, Nick Costello and Caine Hayes have fitted in well but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the growth in stature and maturity of the likes of Dean Gogoll, Jamie Pitman and Daniel Cook that have really lifted the Roos. Although a young side, Anglesea now has a band of players with few seasons of senior footy under their belts and that experience is showing. Thomson has again had a solid start to the year and sits in fourth spot on the ladder. New coach Luke McLean would be happy with the performance of Julian Carr, Jackson McLeod, John Mitchell and Dan Jones in the opening four games of the season. Expect an upset victory for the Roos. Other selections: INVERLEIGH v North Geelong, East Geelong v WERRIBEE CENTRALS, BELL POST HILL v Belmont Lions, Corio v BANNOCKBURN Geelong West v WINCHELSEA (Friday night at West Oval).

One of the few: Brendan Sheedy with a 45cm snapper from Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s waterfront on the weekend.

Powerbait to the people: Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Robert Hughes shows off his 2.8kg trout at Lake Jindabyne.

Air apparent decrees start of surf season AN APPARENT change in the air to generally crisper conditions over the past week has turned attention to surf angling, with quality salmon captures. While local beaches produced small fish averaging 500g, the rock platforms along the Great Ocean Road returned some of the best fish landed so far this year. Cinema Point rewarded anglers casting small baitfishprofile lures with salmon to 1.5kg, Most fish were taken on the morning low tides when the salmon pushed baitfish up hard against the shore wash, requiring casts of less than 20m. Similar-size fish came from Wye River and She Oaks, just past Lorne, where the high tides were more productive. Lures accounted for the most fish. Bait was still working but was not as productive as lures because the fish were harassing baitfish near the surface, not down on the sea floor. This weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early-morning high tides should be suitable for lure anglers at locations such as Artillery Rock, Wye River and Cumberland River. Corio Bay went from chocolates to boiled sweets this week due to the north-easterly wind discolouring the water along the Geelong foreshore. Snapper were still taken but

On the bite BRIAN LONG most were around the 45cm mark, with one or two fish considered a good catch. Brendan Sheedy found the fish at North Shore rocks and Rippleside where the lure that worked best was Eco Gearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bug Ant. Ken Alford and Graham Holmes put in a big effort fishing near the waterfront carousel. They only caught flathead but Graham landed one nice fish of 64cm on a Turtleback worm along with a nice grass whiting of 48cm on the same lure. Bird Rock returned a snapper or two for a number of anglers who fished land-based with fresh squid. Terry Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connor was rewarded with two fish of around 2kg each. Gummy shark numbers continued to increase, with Wilson Spit again the destination of choice. Most gummies were under 4kg but Harry Patton took a standout of 9kg cleaned and taken on fresh squid.

The spoil grounds off Hermsley were again productive for anglers drifting with soft plastics for mixed bags of snapper and flathead. Most of the snapper were between 35cm and 50cms, with the best I saw close to 3kg. Rock flathead to 55cm were in reasonable numbers and willing to take a variety of three-inch minnows and Turtleback worms. This area always fishes at its best on the high tide running off. Large squid were found all the way between St Leonards and Queenscliff, with small, darker-coloured jigs still the best option. Fishing after dark has been the most successful but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth casting a jig or two around the cut at Queenscliff during daylight hours on slack water. The cut remains a worthwhile option for silver trevally. Soft plastics are best but bait anglers can use fillet of pilchard fished lightly weighted at slack water. Swan Bay springs all sorts of surprises and none bigger in the past week than Xavier Doltonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2.2kg tailor, which took a pilchard fished under a float near the bay entrance. In freshwater, Lake Purrumbete rewarded anglers with trout to close to 3kg in the past week. Both bait and lures have

been working, with the latter the best choice. Try Tassie Devils in the gold colourations or SX 40s in the clear, natural colours. Bullen Merri also fished well, with most trout just under 1kg. Powerbait has accounted for most fish but gudgeon has also been worth using, along with small, bibbed lures such as Micro Minns and Rapalas in either the 3cm or 5cm sizes. Robert Hughes returned from Lake Jindabyne, in the Snowy Mountains, where the cool conditions had the fish biting. Robert landed a great bag of rainbow and brown trout, with his best weighing 2.8kg. Robert couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t figure out why the fish took such a liking to his Powerbait, on most occasions leaving his hard-earned mudeyes alone. Anyone looking for some fun catching eels should take a look at Lake Connewarre where fishing after dark has seen some close to 1m landed and quite a few bigger eels lost. Worms are all thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needed for bait, along with a warm coat for comfort.

Ablett suffers Logies fallout BY ANDREW MATHIESON GEELONG’S leadership group had words to Gary Ablett over a late night at a TV Logies after-party but he escaped a ban from senior team mates. Coach Mark Thompson still believed Ablett exercised poor judgement amid reports the rested star also failed to watch the Cats’ 108-point demolition of Richmond from the stands. Thompson said the reigning Brownlow medallist “probably was not” at last week’s game. “I know I had a chat with him with the leadership group and he probably made the wrong decision by going out to that (Logies) function,” he said. “But we don’t mind him going out for dinner. “And he was drinking water – we can guarantee he wasn’t drinking alcohol.” Ablett, who missed out on this year’s captaincy to Cameron Ling, told the team’s leaders that he ate dinner out before attending a party after the awards show finished at nearly midnight. Thompson said Ablett did not apologise but “guaranteed” the club he was only out for an hour or so and remained sober. “You’re allowed to go out – he just probably chose the wrong place to go out to,” the coach said. A hamstring strain forced Ablett to miss against the hapless Tigers as the Cats continued to take a norisk policy on sore players. Ruckman Brad Ottens will join a host of Cats on the sidelines for Sunday’s home clash against Sydney. Ottens has been diagnosed with a stress reaction in his foot’s “hot spot” and will miss six to eight weeks. He will join new Swan Mark Seaby on the AFL casualty list, which brings former Cat Shane Mumford to face former club rival Mark Blake in the ruck. “Blake against Mumford – there you go, it should be a great contest,” Thompson said. Thompson said Geelong would avoid a repeat of last year when it was forced to rest the injury-prone Ottens until the end of the season. “That’s what’s happened the last couple of years,

Naughty Gazza: Mark Thompson tells this week’s press conference that Gary Ablett received a slap on the wrist for his night out at the Logies. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 46761 so it has worked for us,” he said. “Hopefully his legs repair but we probably need more than three or four games from Brad each year before he plays finals. “We’re devastated that he’s injured and hope he gets back as soon as he can.” Thompson only heard about Ottens’ injury two days after the game when a scan confirmed the worst news. Tough nuts Joel Corey and Max Rooke were also ruled out earlier in the week.
