Kenyans on a long road back to ocean road for marathon crown BY ERIN PEARSON KENYA’S top long-distance runners will return to the Surf Coast this weekend in an attempt to reclaim the Great Ocean Road International marathon trophy. Drama marred Charles Muturi’s 2010 race after visa issues stopped him reaching Australia until a few hours before the 45-kilometre race. Organiser John Craven said Muturi would run with three other Kenyans. The 27-year-old 2009 race champion will bolster his pack with fellow Kenyans Daniel Mwelu, 29, and James Kipkelwon, 31. Last year’s shock winner, Mark Tucker, created history when he became the first Geelong athlete to win the marathon. The middle-distance runner broke the Kenyans’ six-year domination from Lorne to Apollo Bay, winning in two hours, 29 minutes and 41 seconds. Craven said Melbourne 42-year-old Magnus Michelsson, who weighed 56 kilograms, would be Australia’s best chance of overcoming the Kenyan contingent. Michelsson has won Gold Coast, Melbourne, Canberra and Australian marathons. He was looking forward to returning to the Great Ocean Road. “I normally race in Africa this time of year so it clashes but this year gave me the opportunity to come back,” Michelsson said. “Being on Aussie turf should work to my advantage over the international competitors, and I hope to make the top five, but we will see. “It’s a pretty special road to race on.”

On the road again: Kenyans David Mutua and James Kariuki compete in last year’s marathon.

increase at five per cent. I’m disappointed council couldn’t meet that target but there’s a valid reason why it didn’t,” he said. “Advice given to me by council is that the super funds scheme was unbudgeted and superannuation will now cost the shire extra in the order of $400,000.” Surf Coast’s rates hike will be the highest in the region, with Borough of Queenscliff’s increase at 4.5 per cent and City of Greater

Geelong adopting a 4.9 per cent rise. Cr Humphrey said he would investigate developing an assistance plan to help Surf Coast’s pensioners. “Pensioners need some sort of assistance,” he said. “Not everyone here is rich. Some are finding it very hard to survive, so this council needs a bit more compassion for these people.”

He urged council to “spend the money wisely.” “There have been a few comments that electricity bills are up a bit but I think seniors seem to be quite able to cope with an increase,” he said. “Some people will certainly find it hard, though.” The budget will go on exhibition until late June.

Truck crash kills Whittington teen BY ERIN PEARSON A WHITTINGTON teenager has died in a horrific collision with a logging truck, according to Geelong police. Leading Senior Constable Glenn Stephens said the teenager’s Nissan and the truck collided at a North Shore intersection about 8.30pm Tuesday. Police believed the truck was travelling south on Seabeach Parade when it struck the driver’s side of the sedan as it travelled west on Walchs Road. A young passenger in the sedan escaped the crash uninjured but the driver died at the scene, police said. Friends and family left tributes and messages of condolences on Facebook. “Your heart and soul rest in peace, may you live on in those who love and adore you, you will forever have a special place in my heart,” a post said. Police were investigating the cause of the crash when the Independent went to press. The 19-year-old’s distressed family did not want his name published, police said. The Geelong region has recorded seven road fatalities since January. The state road toll is 110.

‘Mourning mum’ in stolen caravan BY KIM WATERS A JAN Juc woman spent a night in a stolen caravan while coming to terms with the murder of her son, a court heard this week. Debra Day, 51, faced Geelong Magistrates Court on Wednesday to answer to a charge of assisting in the retention of the $48,000 caravan. Police prosecutor Leading Senior Constable Rowan Mifsud told the court police discovered Day living in the caravan in Echuca on January 25. Snr Const Mifsud said Day’s ex-husband contacted police admitting to stealing the caravan from a Freshwater Creek property. Snr Const Mifsud said Day had no role in the “actual theft”. Wendy Gibbons, for Day, said her client was “not dealing well” with the murder of her son four years earlier and only stayed in the caravan for “a night or two”. Mr von Einem convicted Day and sentenced her to an 18-month good-behaviour bond.

Drug dealer, 62, used profits on ‘gambling’ BY KIM WATERS A 62-YEAR-OLD man who trafficked more than $500 of cannabis a week was trying pay off $20,000 in gambling debts, a court heard this week. Ocean Grove’s Danny Steven faced two charges of trafficking cannabis in Geelong Magistrates Court on Wednesday. Police prosecutor Leading Senior Constable Rowan Mifsud told the court officers caught Steven selling cannabis two days after he started a credit bail program for two previous convictions for drug trafficking. Snr Const Mifsud said police witnessed Steven parked at Ocean

Grove’s Shell petrol station with two males at 9.35pm on February 8. Police asked Steven to empty his pockets and found nine bags containing 22.7 grams of marijuana. Snr Const Mifsud said on March 14 police watched a male step out of a silver Toyota and into Steven’s car at a boat ramp on March 14. P police approached the men and found $90 in cash, six separate bags of marijuana and three cannabis cigarettes. After arresting Steven they found at his home another two boxes of cannabis, a small bowl of the drug, a set of scales and a mobile phone with “several messages relating to the sale

of drugs”. Snr Const Mifsud told the court Steven made “no comment” about trafficking, saying the cannabis was for personal use. Police took Steven into custody on May 5 after witnessing him entering and leaving a house on Ocean Grove’s The Esplanade. Snr Const Mifsud said police found six plastic bags of cannabis, $155 and a mobile phone inside the home. “He admitted…he buys a weekly amount of $500 and sells it for a profit.” Steven’s lawyer, Ms Fridey, said her client was starting the credit bail program when “various friends”

approached him for cannabis. “He said no,” Ms Fridey said. “He felt obliged to provide a small amount of cannabis…to them. (They were) people he knew.” Ms Fridey said Steven had a “longterm addiction to drugs” and a gambling problem. He was a “very intelligent man” who had lived with his parents for 25 years, the court heard. Magistrate Ian von Einem described Steven’s behaviour as “fairly contemptible”. Mr von Einem ordered an assessment for an intensive corrections order before scheduling Steven for sentencing on Friday.

in brief Northern future A BAILLIEU Government grant will fund plans to help Corio and Norlane cash in on Geelong’s “rapid population growth”, according to Regional Cities Minister Denis Napthine. He said the suburbs had “many strategic advantages that make (them) a high-demand economic and residential location”.

Leisurelink ‘huge’ A MILLION visitors are set to have used Geelong’s newest swim centre by its first birthday, according to Mayor John Mitchell. He said Waurn Ponds’ Leisurelink was a “huge success story”, with 700,000 visitors so far and memberships approaching 10,000.

Wine ‘challenge’ VINTAGE 2011 will “categorically cement” the Geelong region as one of Australia’s premier wine-producing areas, according to an industry spokesperson. Geelong Winegrowers Association’s Hugh Hull said the region’s wineries had overcome “the most challenging vintage in years” due to rain and humidity to produce consistently high-standard products.

Port ‘bonanza’ SHIFTING Victorian car shipping to Geelong would create up to 1200 jobs and an annual economic windfall of $200 million in the city, according to Victoria’s Ports Minister. He told a budget briefing lunch at Fyansford that a feasibility study into relocating the work from Melbourne would begin next month.

BY ERIN PEARSON TAMMI Moxon became Mrs Butters in front of more than 23,000 people at Skilled Stadium on Saturday. The 23-year-old bride married Aaron Butters while watching the Cats’ 66point domination of North Melbourne. Geelong may have won its 25th successive match at the ground but all eyes were on the lucky couple from Clifton Springs. Mrs Butters, who won her wedding in a K-Rock radio competition, called the Skilled Stadium ceremony “amazing”. “Everyone was cheering,” she said. “We wouldn’t have married for a least another year without all of this help. Everyone’s been unbelievably generous.” Mrs Butters said she and Aaron had planned to marry in February but “unforeseen circumstances” forced them to cancel. Skilled Stadium manager Natalie Valentine said the wedding was “one of only a rare few held on match day”.

CFA rezoning OCEAN Grove’s disused CFA building could become offices and its surrounding land used for purposes including a medical centre and “accommodation”, according to councillor Rod Macdonald. Denis Napthine said council this week adopted a rezoning of the depot land from residential to mixed use and would ask Victoria’s Planning Minister for a permit to use the building for offices with “minor renovations”.

BY KIM WATERS RESCUERS had to cut three injured people from a wrecked car at Marcus Hill on Wednesday, according to Victoria Police. A police spokesperson said an air ambulance carried the “very seriously injured” driver to Melbourne for treatment.

Ambulances took the two passengers and the driver of the second vehicle, a van, to Geelong Hospital with “moderate” injuries. The spokesperson said police believed the car was heading west on Bellarine Highway when it struck water and lost control before colliding with the van heading east at 12.10pm.

The police spokesperson said officers were “compiling a report” when the Independent went to press. A Country Fire Authority spokesperson said CFA workers had to cut the passengers out of the car. The CFA spokesperson said the car victims were aged from 19 to in their 40s. The van driver was also

aged in his 40s. The accident shut down the Bellarine Highway for about an hour and a half while CFA staff worked to free the trapped passengers, the spokesperson said. Police diverted traffic to Banks Road before reopening the highway at 1.56pm.

Rising costs: Ocean Grove’s Simon McLean disposes of rubbish at Drysdale’s tip. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 64439 increase to 4.9 per cent has been challenging to say the least. “We have achieved this by finding efficiencies in our operation across the board, not by cutting services. “On the contrary, we have actually increased service areas that are being impacted by rapid growth. This includes planning and building, family services and parks maintenance.” Cr Mitchell said expenditure on services increased $19 million on last year to a total $245.6 million.

“Our capital works program has also increased considerably over last year, having gone from $64 million to $84 million.” Cr Mitchell said CBD revitalisation projects included $350,000 for new retail kiosks in Lt Malop Street. Civic Car Park would receive a $200,000 upgrade and the City would pull down its building at 20A Gheringhap Street for 70 more parks. The budget also set aside $20 million for new council offices.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN AN “ASTRONOMICAL” increase in tip fees has accompanied a 4.9 per cent rate rise in City of Greater Geelong’s annual budget, according to a councillor. Andy Richards blamed the tip fee hike on a “buried” slug in last week’s State Government budget. Cr Richards said the state’s landfill levy had increased almost 50 per cent from $30 to $44 a tonne. “This is effectively the State Government putting its hand into resident’s pockets every time they wheel their bin to the kerb,” he said. “Council itself pays millions of dollars in landfill levy to State Government and in return gets very little back. You can’t just keep hitting ratepayers up and saying to council ‘It’s your problem, you fix it’.” Cr Richards said the timing of the rise put the City in a “very bad position” because it began its budgetary process in February and had virtually finished when State Government released its own budget. “This is an estimated extra cost of about $175,000 and is money that could be spent on infrastructure, children’s services or parks and gardens.” Cr Richards said the City should print all state taxes and charges separately on rates notices and receipts at the land-fill gate. Other council charge increases under the City’s 2011/2012 budget included a six per cent hike in leisure centre and outdoor aquatic centres fees and $20 extra a week for child care. Dog registrations would rise $10 but parking fees remained at $2 an hour. Council also approved a new $100 annual fee for real estate agent portable signs. Mayor John Mitchell said the budget attempted to minimise cost increases for residents. “We have achieved this despite a significant increase in costs to our operation and the need to service a growing population,” he said. “The cost of the goods and services that Council must purchase to do its job has increased above the Consumer Price Index, so for us to keep the rate

But Committee for Geelong’s Peter Dorling said the twin $15 million applications to upgrade the city’s library and heritage centre and Skilled Stadium were a “big ask”. City of Greater Geelong has sought the money from Regional Development Australia’s (RDA) first round of funding. Mr Dorling, who also serves as RDA Barwon South West’s co-deputy chair, said the region “may have to be patient”. State Government allocated $15 million for the library and heritage centre upgrade last week on top of the City’s existing $20 million commitment. Cats chief Brian Cook said the club would adjust the Skilled Stadium project. which included lights, to fit the funding available.

‘Promise of presence’ saves Fort Queenscliff BY KIM WATERS A DEFENCE department promise to maintain an “equal or greater” presence has secured the future of Fort Queenscliff, according to a council spokesperson. The Borough of Queenscliffe spokesperson said parliamentary secretary for defence David Feeney had promised Mayor Bob Merrieman the military would stay in town after its Soldier Career Management Agency left the fort next year. An announcement last year that the agency would leave had sparked fears

for the future of the historic fort. The spokesperson said council was waiting to find out the identity of the next military tenants. “We don’t know what it is. It could be army, navy, air force or SAS, we’ve got no idea, but we’ve been assured by the Federal Government of an equal or greater presence than now.” The spokesperson said councillors were “happy” with the promise. “The Defence Department is the biggest employer in the borough, with over 448 people at the fort. It’s an important part of the community, as

obviously all those people live in the area and contribute to the local economy.” A defence department spokesperson said the decision to move the career management agency to Canberra to would “improve the way defence does business”. The relocation was a cost-cutting exercise, the spokesperson said. “Options are being considered to relocate other defence organisations to Fort Queenscliff and once a business case is developed for each, affected staff and representatives will be con-

sulted in accordance with the defence enterprise certified agreement. “It is expected the review will be completed mid-year, following which it is planned that a governmentappointed independent commission will consider defence’s recommendations. “It is intended that the commission will conduct public consultation before reporting back to the government.” The agency moved to Fort Queenscliff in 2001 after the sudden closure of the fort’s defence command and staff college.

BY KIM WATERS GEELONG will have a chance to thank the region’s tireless Red Cross volunteers at a charity concert this weekend, according to an organiser. Dorothy O’Donnell said Geelong Barwon Region Red Cross would mark a global celebration day on Sunday with the concert at Highton. The event would be the region’s first Red Cross concert to acknowledge the quiet-behind-the scenes work of the service’s Geelong volunteers, she said. “We find that people know about Red Cross but generally don’t know what we do locally. “They see the appeals for earthquakes and bushfires but don’t realise we run programs like the one in which elderly or frail people can receive a phone call every morning to check they’re okay or the school breakfast programs, first-aid courses and prison support services. “There are also two Red Cross vehicles on the road five days a week that transport patients to places like the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre with volunteer drivers.” Ms O’Donnell said the organisation was “in desperate need” of more volunteers. “We always need more volunteers and I’d particularly love more people to join our first-aid team, even if they don’t have any experience.” Songs of celebration: Marian Stojanovski will sing at the concert. She said Sunday’s concert would start at 2pm at Picture Tommy Ritchie 64381 Highton’s St Luke’s Uniting church.

Eddie exchanges comforts for Indian kids BY KIM WATERS THE WORLD changed for Drysdale’s Eddie Loughnan the first time he administered a polio vaccination to a child in southern India. He realised just how much Australians had to be thankful for as the medicine went down. After 27 years as a Rotary club member and a year as one of the service organisation’s district governors, Mr Loughnan expanded his horizons with a friendship exchange trip to India in 2003. The long-serving Rotarian arrived back in Australia last month after a second India exchange with wife Val. “This time we were checking up on a water purification system we funded for schools and the toilets we put in girls’ secondary colleges,” he said. “In some of those schools the facilities were so bad the students stayed home because a lack of purified water meant they were constantly getting stomach upsets. “Most Australian kids wouldn’t even realise how lucky they are to have access to clean drinking water and proper toilet facilities - it’s taken for granted.” Mr Loughnan said a team of Indians joined the Rotary exchange last month to take part in India’s national polio immunisation day. “Overall 180 million chil-

Geelong Road Policing Advisor Shane Coles said the city station’s traffic management unit had fined almost 500 jaywalkers in central Geelong in the past 10 months. Some pedestrians seemed to have a “total disregard” for safety, he said. “The problem is the way they cross, they don’t want to wait. “In Ryrie Street because of the median strip people might get across the first section but not the second and get cleaned up. “We don’t have a huge pedestrian injury rate but people need to cross at a traffic light, that’s what they’re there for.” Snr Sgt Coles warned jaywalkers face fines of $60. A woman who witnessed what she described as a near miss on Tuesday told the Independent a woman in her late-20s crossed Ryrie Street near

In April a teenage girl was taken to hospital after a car struck her at the same crossing. The Squire Shoppe owner Hayden Spurling, whose business is near the crossing, said the aftermath of the April accident was “shocking”. “The people who have had either near misses or been hit have done so at their own peril. Pedestrians need to be patient because it does take longer than most traffic lights to change,” he said. “It was supposed to be pedestrianactivated crossing when first installed but it’s tied into traffic lights elsewhere, so there is a fair delay. “It’s incredibly frustrating but safety must come first.”

BY ERIN PEARSON FEARS of rain have pushed back Geelong’s largest music festival from November to March, according to organisers. One Great Night On Earth project director Lyndel Moore said weather bureau advice predicted the threat of above-average rain for November. Ms Moore feared the potential deluge could jeopardise the success of the inaugural charity concert. “We just got some really strong information saying November had already become a high rainfall month in Victoria, so it seemed to make sense to change the date,” she said. “That time of year (March) will better accommodate an older demographic. Younger demographics don’t care if it buckets down rain but older demographics do.” In November the region recorded 86.2 millimetres of rain compared to a monthly average of 47.1mm. The March total was 33.4mm compared to the average of 28.7mm. Ms Moore said the festival had also secured a site for the March 31 event

after talks with various Lara land owners. “We’re pretty chuffed to be able to tell you the site for this event is now solid,” she said. “It will be situated at the base of You Yangs National Park with views out over the bay and the city of Melbourne in the distance. “It will look very much like Emerald City come nightfall.” Ms Moore said the festival would soon release names of newly signed acts from Australia and the UK. “The rewards are now beginning to come in spades and we couldn’t be happier with the progress.” Organisers unveiled their initial plans to the Independent in October. They said the event would feature some of the world’s “greatest rock stars” from ‘60s and ‘70s to attract a crowd of around 100,000 patrons. The organisers expected the event to raise around $14 million for charity. Proceeds would go to Fine Green Paddock, which supports regional Australians struggling to overcome fires, droughts and floods.

‘Praise’ for our volunteers VOLUNTEERS across the region earned pats on the back this week as part of national celebrations for their unpaid community work. Geelong councillor Kylie Fisher led the outpouring of praise during 2011 National Volunteers Week. “Volunteers provide useful – and often vital – services to people from all walks of life,” she said.

“Thank you to all our volunteers for giving up your valuable time to help others. You make the community a better place.” Council colleague Rod Macdonald attended a morning tea for Bellarine Peninsula Meals on Wheels volunteers where he encourage people to “get involved” in volunteering.

City set to tighten grog shop control BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A PACKAGED liquor accord could form part of a crackdown on Geelong bottle shops and booze barns, according to a councillor. The accord would follow a State Government edict requiring packaged liquor stores to apply for planning permits. City of Greater Geelong and Colac Otway and Surf Coast shires have an existing liquor accord for licensed venues. Geelong councillor Jan Farrell said the packaged liquor accord was likely to emerge from development of a City policy on siting of retail alcohol outlets. Cr Farrell said the new per-

mit requirement would increase City control over the proliferation of retail liquor outlets. The City had initiated the permit requirement through Municipal Association of Victoria. The requirement applied only to new outlets and would not consider suitability to hold a licence, Cr Farrell said. Applicants still had to apply to Responsible Alcohol Victoria for a liquor licence. Geelong Police licensing section said the city had 2500 liquor licences. The section received another 12 packaged liquor licence applications last month. Cr Farrell said applications for liquor outlets would now have to be advertised with a

notice on the premises and a letter to adjoining residents. Applications would also go to Victoria Police’s licensing section, she said. “Applications will be assessed on amenity such as the proximity of community facilities like schools. They will also be assessed on social impact for the neighbourhood,” Cr Farrell said. “They will be treated similarly to gambling licence applications. This will give local government the ability to limit the downside of alcohol use and abuse.” Cr Farrell said “extensive research and data” had demonstrated adverse impacts from high densities of liquor outlets

in areas of socioeconomic disadvantage. Alcohol Policy Coalition spokesperson Michael Livingston said 75 per cent of booze sold in Victoria came from bottle shops and liquor barns. The number of packaged liquor outlets in Victoria had more than doubled in the past two decades, he said. “Research shows that with every additional liquor shop the rates of assault, domestic violence and chronic disease go up,” Mr Livingstone said. “Alcohol remains a major cause of preventable death and illness across the state. It hospitalises 24,700 Victorians and kills more than 750 every year.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN CAR ENTHUSIASTS will motor to Geelong Showgrounds this weekend for one of the keenly awaited events on Victoria’s classic cars calendar. Geelong Bay City Swap Meet attracts thousands of buyers, sellers, restorers, hoarders and collectors from all over the state. Western District Historic Vehicle Club organiser Max McKenzie said Saturday’s 7am start was too long to wait for some enthusiasts chasing the holy grail of a particular part or piece of memorabilia. Max estimated the meet could have about 500 indoor and outdoor trading sites doing brisk business until the early afternoon. “There’s plenty of room for displays of bargains for motorists, restorers, collectors, craft enthusiasts and DIY mechanics,” he said.

Tables turn on sport’s decline Join the club JOHN VAN KLAVEREN come to us we knew we had to go out to them. “This is all about reinvigorating the game. We want to make Geelong the best table tennis club in Australia.” William said the support from the Table Tennis Geelong committee had been “phenomenal”. “The facilities here are great, among the best in Australia. This is the right place to create the best club and demonstrate to other regions what can be done.” Geelong Table Tennis Centre boasts 32 courts with a mixture of international standard tables catering for players of all levels and abilities, including the disabled. The centre was established on North Geelong junction of Church Street and Ballarat Road in 1977. The first step for William and Robert was to do the rounds of local primary schools to gauge the level of interest.

“The schools welcomed us with open arms,” William said. “We put on an exhibition and a few demonstrations and coaching clinics. We want to get kids excited about how fast and explosive the game can be.” Robert said the key to keeping juniors was to make both the sport and the centre a place where they wanted to “hang out”. “The aim is to create a social environment. We want to make it the place they hang out where their friends are.” The pair hopes to eventually launch a table tennis academy in Geelong, building on their junior recruiting campaign. “Hopefully we can find the junior who goes on to play for Australia at the Olympics,” Robert grinned. “We want to create the champions of tomorrow. “When we first started we had no coaching. We would have loved to have had the number one and four players coaching us.” William recently returned from world championships in Holland where he played both singles and doubles. More information on the table tennis centre is available by phoning 5278 8451 or visiting tabletennisgeelong.com.au.

JUNIOR competition is the lifeblood of any sport club, no matter the code. Neglecting junior development is akin to a death sentence, as several local clubs have found to their detriment. It was with this in mind that the progressive committee at Table Tennis Geelong instituted a campaign to win back junior players. Attracting the number one and four ranked players in Australia to spearhead the campaign wasn’t a bad start. Australia’s top player, William Henzell, teamed up with his fourth-ranked teammate Robert Frank to create a coaching clinic called TT Edge. “We were both working fulltime and just could not find enough hours in the day to train, let alone pass along any tips to younger players,” William said. “As we thought about the game and declining numbers of juniors, we saw not only a business opportunity but also a chance to promote and grow the sport.” William disclosed declining participation in table tennis over the years. “Kids are attracted by their computer games and iPhones,” he said. “We wanted to reverse the trend but instead of waiting for them to

buckets & bouquets BOUQUETS to Wendy who kindly gave me her place in a queue at Woolworths Bell Post Hill when I was feeling unwell. This sort of compassionate act doesn’t happen often these days. Maria, Batesford BOUQUETS to Bellarine Railway, from which we hired a dinner train for a recent 50th birthday party. It was reasonably priced and we all had a great night. Bouquets also to Bellarine Catering for the hot, delicious food. It was fantastic. David and Judy, Lara BUCKETS to Messrs. Worland, Oraniuk, Linaker and Barron, who seem to have plenty of time to write letters telling us how things should be but who never actually put themselves in decision-making positions. I suggest they get together to form The Statler and Waldorf Party. Get A Life, Ocean Grove BOUQUETS to efficient McHarry’s Buslines radio operator Alan and driver Huw for the return of my wallet with everything intact after I lost it with my pension on a bus two weeks ago. They said it was all in a day’s work. Age Pensioner, Hamlyn Heights BOUQUETS to a person named C Molloy for returning by post medical papers lost in Westfield Geelong’s car park. Your action was much appreciated. Graham, St Leonards BUCKETS to Geelong’s council for my parking fine incurred on Corio Street opposite Waterfront Christian Church. Council’s placement of signage in the area is confusing. Motorists parking there should be careful to avoid fines. Caring Citizen, Grovedale BOUQUETS to the old fuddy duddies of St Leonards. Thanks for the memories. The boys’ club lives on. Lil’ Bow Wow, St Leonards BOUQUETS to Kerry and company at Scottish Chiefs for an excellent meal and service on Mother’s Day. Caldow Family, East Geelong

BOUQUETS to Australians who welcome all cultures to our nation without prejudice. Whether your family’s origins are in Europe, Africa, Asia, the Americas or from convicts, we all share Australia in peace and acceptance. This makes me the proudest patriot of all. Everyone’s Country, Breakwater

‘Big fall’ in waiting list for homes ALMOST 190 Geelong applicants for public housing now have roofs over their heads after the city recorded the “biggest fall” among Victoria’s waiting lists, according to State Government. Housing Minister Wendy

BOUQUETS to V/Line staff at Bannockburn and North Geelong and Geelong railway stations. Since moving to Bannockburn two months ago I have used the train and bus services and the staff have been professional, friendly and a pleasure to deal with. Happy Customer, Bannockburn BUCKETS to men who were working next door and climbed over my fence to take all the red delicious apples off my espalier tree. The apples were part of my food supply for the year. I hope the workmen’s wives read this and are thoroughly ashamed of them. Beware, Leopold

Lovell said 186 applicants secured Geelong homes in the March quarter. The figure helped the Barwon South West region to an overall waiting list decline of 7.4 per cent. “It’s early days but these figures indicate the Baillieu

Government is already heading in the right direction on public housing,” Ms Lovell said. “We are reviewing vacancy rates, turnover procedures and times and working harder with the applicants who have been waiting the longest.”

ANNUAL WEDDING EXPO

BOUQUETS to Ray for coming back to Cloverdale Takeaway. He has brought back the best fish and chips in town. Please, Ray, don’t leave again. Happy Residents, Corio BOUQUETS to Hazad for selling oxygen-enriched water to my aunt, who suffers bronchiectasis. My aunt is now no longer dependent on portable oxygen cylinders. Her breathing has improved dramatically. Thanks for giving her life back. Marlina, Corio BOUQUETS to SpringDale Community House and Maria for facilitating a Men’s Shed at St Leonards. I’m new to the area and look forward to Tuesday mornings when I can chat to new-found friends and prepare, cook and eat lunch with them. Fred, St Leonards

Tipping warming BRIAN Handley tried to play down and unwittingly confirmed climate science at the same time (Letters, May 6). Yes, it is correct that global temperatures have “only” risen .7C in the past 100 years. But a rise of .7C has already been sufficient for Australia and the world to experience record droughts, floods and bushfires. Far from temperatures cooling, 2010 was the hottest on record, causing heatwaves, fires and floods in countries such as Russia, Pakistan and Australia. Overflowing dams in Victoria is not a refutation of global warming - warmer sea surface temperatures result in more moisture and cause more frequent flooding. A carbon tax, a gross national solar feed-in tariff and proactive measures on renewable energy are all needed to move us to a renewable, low-carbon future. In Geelong we should embrace this future. We have the manufacturing capacity, solar, wind and geothermal resources to be leaders in green jobs and renewable energy. Climate deniers seem to have latched onto and willfully distorted a supposed statement by Tim Flannery that a carbon tax in Australia will not reduce global temperatures. It is important to understand that because of the long life of greenhouse gases it will take centuries to reduce global temperatures. The real question is whether we can limit temperature rises to 2C or less and avoid catastrophic tipping points such as the melting of Antarctic ice shelves or the release of methane from Arctic permafrost. Dave Campbell Geelong Sustainability Group president

Number’s up I AM RESPONDING to Thomas Watson’s letter in the April 28 Independent. Almost all life on Earth depends on carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Whatever numbers you attach to carbon dioxide, whether percentages or numbers of molecules, there must be enough for us to exist. The relative sizes of earth, the oceans and the atmosphere result in long numbers that are difficult to comprehend. The Japanese tsunami resulted from a disturbance

Gotcha, sceptics! I SUSPECT I have counted at least seven times climate sceptics reporting that Tim Flannery admitted the carbon tax will not lower temperatures. Brian Handley (Letters, April 6) has repeated this comment twice. It’s time to set the record straight. The reports come from a discussion between Tim Flannery and Andrew Bolt and following is my paraphrasing of that conversation. Andrew Bolt (AB): “Mr Flannery, how much will the proposed carbon tax lower global temperatures.” Tim Flannery (TF): “I don’t have any information on the direct effect of an Australian carbon tax, as our proposed carbon tax should be considered as part of a worldwide strategy to reduce carbon emissions.” AB: “All right, then, how much will global temperatures be reduced if we stopped emitting carbon.” TF: “If we stopped emitting carbon, global temperatures will not fall at all. There is already enough carbon in the atmosphere to ensure that global temperatures will continue rising for about 100 years. “The real issue…is how much temperatures will rise if we don’t reduce our carbon emissions.” AB: “Gotcha!” Unfortunately, the people listening to the radio didn’t hear the whole of Prof Flannery’s answer. His response was edited to remove any words after “global temperatures will not fall at all”, giving some sense to Mr Bolt’s “gotcha” reply. Unfortunately, climate sceptics have not bothered to find out what Prof Flannery really thinks and prefer to regurgitate the lie that suits their purposes. Gavin Brown East Geelong

I WOULD like to highlight the recent official opening of Geelong’s new state-of-the-art greyhound racing dual track at Beckley Park in Corio. With more than 3000 registered trainers, breeders and industry specialists in the region, Geelong is a major centre for the greyhound industry. By providing tracks of varying length, this new facility will enhance Geelong’s ability to host a range of worldclass events. The dual track is a world first. The facility’s short course is suited to sprinters, while the longer course has only one turn for the dogs to negotiate, giving them all a chance of winning regardless of their starting box. To complement the dual track, the new facility boasts a fully air-conditioned, ground-floor kennel block, a grandstand and a convention centre to comfortably accommodate 300 patrons. Greyhound racing is a vital and growing part of the Victorian racing industry and the state’s economy. This development is yet another example of how serious the Baillieu Government is about supporting racing in regional Victoria. I congratulate Racing Minister Denis Napthine for seeing this project through to completion and for contributing $4.3 million to the $8.2 million project. I recognise this development has come about as a result of the dedication and hard work of many racing club stalwarts and leaders. I also congratulate Geelong Greyhound Racing Club and Greyhound Racing Victoria for having the vision to successfully deliver such an ambitious project. David Koch MLC Member for Western Victoria Region

in oceans representing .000000001 per cent of Earth’s volume. Though incredibly small relative to Earth, the atmosphere had a major impact on the people in Alabama. When the sun comes up in the morning the air gets warmer. A pure mixture of oxygen and nitrogen does not absorb radiant heat energy, or infrared light, so it was known 150 years ago that the small amounts of greenhouse gases present in air actually make a lot of difference. This difference can be measured. This trace of gases makes so much difference that an increase of 30 per cent and rising could have a significant impact on our climate. I don’t know for sure how much but it would be surprising if it didn’t. I hope all discussion of climate change remains respectful and well informed. Please don’t try to confuse us with numbers.

NEED CASH then sell something you no longer need....

Beware silent killer I’D LIKE to remind all Victorians to get their gas heaters serviced before winter to avoid the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is an invisible, odourless gas produced by faulty, unserviced gas heaters. This silent killer has killed nine Victorians in the past 11 years. Our campaign is spearheaded by Vanessa and Scott Robinson whose two boys died from carbon monoxide poisoning at Mooroopna last year. These bereaved parents’ message is simple: get your gas heater serviced at least every two years so this won’t happen to you. I urge readers to book a service with a gasfitter or plumber today.

Anu show for GPAC BY ERIN PEARSON CHRISTINE Anu hopes her latest play will be a catalyst for political change. As one of Australia’s most successful contemporary indigenous recording and stage artists, Anu said Rainbow’s End would highlight to audiences the lingering division between Aboriginal people and “the rest of Australia”. She wanted the play to spark change to Australia’s “unacceptable” levels of discrimination. “There were housing issues for aboriginal people in the 1950s and there are still housing issues now,” Anu said. “Australia still has undertones of racism, society’s just got better at being more politically correct about it. Hopefully this play gets people talking about an era bygone.” Anu initially found fame singing pop songs such as My Island Home before starring in Australian stage productions of Sapphires, Little Shop Of Horrors and Moulin Rouge. Anu said she jumped at the chance to play on the three lead roles in Rainbow’s End, based on the experiences of three generations of Koori women in 1950s Australia. The story is set in a shack on a Goulburn River floodplain in 1954 as

Australia prepares for a royal visit, heightening emotional ties to the monarchy in the Menzies-era. Directed by award-winning director Craig Ilott, the play intends to depict the optimistic spirit of the central characters as they strive to find their place in conservative, rural Australia. The cast also includes film and television veteran Lillian Crombie and newcomer Chenoa Deemal. Anu said she wanted the play to provide a forum for discussion on whether Australia’s treatment of Aboriginal people had changed. “We have the baby boomer generation coming along saying they were kids in the 1950s and that they remember the historical events. We now want to educate the younger generations.” The play, touring Australia, has been staged for thousands of VCE students studying drama. Anu said she hoped Rainbow’s End could influence the country’s future leadership. “We’re offering this to the next generation who will be the country’s contributing adults,” she said. “We want to spark their interest.” Rainbow’s End will be at Geelong Performing Arts Centre from Tuesday to May 21.

BY ERIN PEARSON ORGANISERS expect over 1500 people and 800 dogs to help raise money for animal welfare this weekend in Geelong. Kirsty Ayerbe said she was preparing for another smooth event during the annual Million Paws Walk despite the mix of participants. “I’ve been saying to people over the past week that we’ve never had any issues, no fights no bites,” she laughed. “Dogs get this sense that they’re at an event and just love to check each other out. It’s quite incredible to have so many dogs in the one spot at once and they seem to have a better time than their owners.” The walk has raised almost $100,000 since its inception in 2004. “It’s been a challenge to get his up and running but I love being involved in the community,” Ayerbe said. “I love the fact the volunteers on the day give their time without question because they’re just so willing to help. Last year we raised $20,000 for RSPCA, which was the biggest to date and this year we’re aiming for a few thousand more.” Ayerbe said proceeds would go to Geelong’s RSPCA inspectors, community education programs and animal shelters. She encouraged the city’s 17,234 registered pet owners to participate. The day would include on-site microchipping, free pet advice, entertainment, raffles, spot prizes, refreshments, stalls and demonstrations, she said. The walk would run from 10am at Eastern Gardens on Sunday, with registrations from 9am.

Volunteers ‘essential’ to MacKillop

Can you provide foster care to a vulnerable child?

acKillop Family Services values the unique contribution of all its volunteers. They provide a quality of involvement that cannot be paid for with money alone. One young person in foster care described her connection with her mentor in personal terms: “She sees me because she wants to, not because she gets paid to”. Volunteers are an essential part of the Mackillop team. Without them the organisation would be unable to provide vulnerable young people with the support they need. Volunteers make a valuable contribution to the work of MacKillop by: giving support to adults and children; opening their own homes to care for children or young people; offering practical and emotional support to families with children with disabilities; providing supervised childcare assistance and driving assistance; and working alongside staff in education services. Volunteer roles in the Barwon/Geelong region include working with young people with a disability, supporting families with transport to and attendance at appointments, helping young people with driving skills, working with young people to develop cooking skills or presentation skills, lead tenant opportunities, mentoring and providing supervised child care activities.

M

Volunteers provide vital support to children in foster care. Foster carers are needed throughout the region on short, medium and long-term arrangements. MacKillop provides all volunteers with comprehensive training, support and sincere recognition and appreciation. Information about volunteering is available by phoning MacKillop’s Volunteer Coordinator on 9381 6999. information about becoming a foster carer is available by phoning MacKillop’s publicity and recruitment worker 5278 9211. More information about MacKillop is available at www.mackillop.org.au.

Bite-sized volunteer opportunities olunteering Geelong has introduced a new initiative for professionals, skilled retirees and university students to enjoy roles as volunteers in their communities. Bite-Sized Volunteering is a project-based initiative linking participants’ skill sets with specific community projects. TAC business engagement officer Susan Green has been supporting Volunteering Geelong to develop the initiative. “It’s clear skilled professionals have much to offer community organisations as volunteers but the opportunities need to be well-developed and mutually beneficial” Susan said. Bite-Sized Volunteering helps Susan deliver corporate objectives and develop the skills and knowledge of colleagues in her team while providing tangible benefits to the community. TAC has a long-standing corporate social responsibility program linking employees to the community sector for opportunities to build leadership capabilities. The key components of Bite-Sized Volunteering projects include: link to a professional skill set, such as training, project management, marketing, risk assessment et cetera; short-term tangible projects with flexibility in delivery; working with a well-organised community organisation that has clearly identified a need; provision of a detailed project plan with specified outcomes; and effective expectation management Volunteering Geelong, in conjunction with State Government’s Department of Planning and Community Development, BacLinks, Give Where you Live, Committee for Geelong’s leaders program and Deakin University’s Job Shop, hopes to enhance the perception of volunteer roles among professionals, skilled retirees and Deakin students. The pilot program will support 15 community organisations to develop projects. More information about the initiative is available by phoning Lucinda Tucker or Gail Rodgers at Volunteering Geelong on 5221 1377 or emailing manager@volunteeringgeelong.org.au

spouse you may have more than $200,000 under management. The superannuation fund may charge 2.2 per cent per annum just to run the fund, which means $4400 in fees or $44,000 if you retire after 10 years. A SMSF can cost as little as $2000 per annum to run depending on the size and number of transactions, which means a sav-

ing of $24,000 over the same 10year period. Learn what it takes to run a SMSF before you make your decision. Phone Investment Banking Institute (IBI) on 1300 669 786 to attend a free seminar.

BY GAVAN WRIGHT, INVESTMENT BANKING INSTITUTE WE ARE often told superannuation funds that don’t pay fees to advisers deliver better returns. If that’s true, how good could the results be if you didn’t have to pay management fees either? Self-managed super funds (SMSFs) are the fastest-growing sector of the superannuation industry, according to Australian Prudential Regulatory Authority, with more than 330,000 families in do-it-yourself funds. The benefits of such an arrangement include: no management fees; no adviser commissions; greater flexibility in investing; and the ability to select from the best-performing investments. Working out whether an SMSF is appropriate for you is difficult. Just because lots of people have one doesn’t mean they’re getting value for money. The key questions to ask yourself are: how much do I have to pay for accounting, legal and auditing costs to run a SMSF; to what extent can I trust someone else to manage my retirement savings; and how much work is required to run my fund myself. Each question takes effort to understand but the rewards can be worthwhile. For example, if you have a joint superannuation fund with your

the two seats and the rear armrest can be folded up or down to suit individual needs. With a volume of 480 litres when the rear-seat backrests are up and 980 litres with both folded, luggage carrying is considerably better than that of the average coupe. However, the sporting swoop of the roof limits the size of boxy items that can be inserted. The frameless doors add further to the sporting feel of the car. There’s certainly no doubt that the Audi A5 Sportback can be used as a family car. And Audi points out that should owners need a squared-off luggage space and an extra seat in the rear then it’s quite happy to sell then an A4 Avant station wagon. Two engines are offered in the initial A5 lineup for Australia. Both are familiar units from other Audi models: a four-cylinder 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine developing 155 kW and a V6 3.0-litre turbo-diesel producing 176 kW. The diesel is the quicker of the two, being able to accelerate to 100 km/h in just 6.1 seconds. Yet this powerplant has an official fuel consumption of only 6.6 litres per hundred kilometres, which makes the A5 TDI eligible for a lower luxury car tax rate under Australian regulations. At this stage quattro all-wheel drive is the only transmission being offered in Australia. It runs through a doubleclutch automated manual gearbox in a system that Audi calls its S-Tronic). Front-wheel-drive models may come later. On the road the A5 Sportback really does feel like a sports car, with superb road grip and a nicely balanced feel through the steering and the seat of the pants. Engine response is good, although naturally there is some turbo lag before you really get it going hard. As is common in double-clutch transmissions, there can be some hesitation at very low speeds but once it’s up and running you wouldn’t realise this isn’t a conventional automatic transmission. Audi’s typically immaculate interior design and build quality continues to impress and the sporting seat, instrument and steering wheel design appealed to our sporty car instincts. Ride comfort and noise suppression is fine, although we found a slight station wagon-type drumming in the rear area on rough roads.

BY ERIC BLAIR eleased here in late-2007, the A5/S5 is Audi’s first entry into the grand tourer segment where it competes against the well-established BMW 3 Series coupe and Mercedes-Benz CLK models. In line with the Audi naming style, the A5 is a luxury cruiser while the S5 is the sporty version. The looks of the big Audi sports model are stunning and turned many a head on our recent road test. The single-frame grille that’s a feature of all new Audi models dominates the front of the car and works well with the car’s strong shoulder line. The sweeping roof-line is long and low giving the car a smooth, sleek profile. A Quattro all-wheel-drive version was added in October, 2008, followed by a two-door convertible variant in late 2009. Bucking the recent trend, the A5 uses an old-style folding fabric roof. The most recent addition to the range is a five-door hatchback named Sportback. It joins the two-door coupe and cabriolet. The prestige German car maker regards the new model as being a fivedoor coupe rather than merely another family style hatchback. Adding rear passenger doors to a sporting coupe certainly gives it plenty of versatility and there’s no doubt that the lines of this latest A5 make it look more like a coupe than a hatchback. Indeed, when viewed from the front and rear the wide stance and low, swooping lines are likely to be mistaken for a sports model by anyone who doesn’t know their cars. So confident is Audi Australia in this new body shape that it predicts far more A5 Sportbacks will be sold than the A5 coupes and convertibles. As well as the rear doors, the Audi designers have also increased the wheelbase of the Sportback by 60 millimetres over that of the coupe and cabriolet. This gives good legroom in the back seat and four adults can travel for extended trips without feeling cramped. Headroom may prove marginal for those over about six-feet tall - I’m right on that number and only had a couple of centimetres to spare - so try it for yourself as part of your private road test. In true coupe fashion the rear area is set up with seating for two rather than three. There’s quite a distance between

eelong’s leading independent motorcycle workshop offers customers a top quality, professional advantage. Motorcycle Service Centre is a VACC-accredited workshop providing manufacturer-approved warranty and log-book servicing for all makes of motorcycles, scooters, ATVs and PWCs from Japan, Europe and USA. The centre’s Rob Jenner says the team is always keen to provide great service and expert solutions. A motorcycle chassis dynamometer has just been installed to assist with performance tuning and fault diagnostics. “In the past we’ve always done a lot of road testing for tuning and fault finding,” Rob says. “We’ll still be doing that but to a much lesser degree. The dyno allows us to run bikes at high speed under load and to literally stand beside them watching and listening.” PWC users can rely on the expert, personalised service of powerski enthusiast Ryan who specialises in all types of two and four-stroke watercraft. After entering both bikes and riders in state and national level road racing championships, Rob can offer racers and track-day riders expert help in all facets of sport and track bike service, set up and performance enhancement. Dirt bikes are catered for, with riders able to take advantage of the centre’s many years of experience in repair and service. Motorcycle Service Centre covers all types of maintenance and repairs including engine and transmission reconditioning, restorative services, general repairs and parts, suspension overhauls, track-day set ups and roadworthiness certificates. The centre is an approved crash repairer, working with Shannons, Swann, QBE, RACV and InsureMyRide among others. Business hours are 8.30am to 5pm Monday to Friday at 336 Portarlington Road, Moolap.

sport Test time for Eagles

Everywhere: Dylan Pace and Zac Loveless with salmon from Eastern Beach

Salmon continue surfacing throughout bays SALMON were in huge numbers harassing whitebait in Corio and Port Phillip bays again over the past week, with anglers having little trouble catching both quality and numbers of fish. St Helens hosted heaps of action, with all the best captures throughout the mornings. Eastern Beach was also consistent, with fish mid-morning through to mid-afternoon. Limeburners Point boat ramp’s outer wall also had returned plenty of salmon, with evenings best. Many anglers witnessed a two-metre mako shark jump clear of the water while chasing feeding salmon in the inner-harbour. Boat anglers found salmon throughout the bay, with best results on small, metal, baitfish-profile lures or soft plastics used close to shore. Snapper reports came in thick and fast, with Peter Shaw landing two over 3kg each and a few pinkies around 1kg from North Shore rocks. The mud directly out from the silos piers was also productive, with the best captures on the run-off from high tide. Outer-harbour catches were confined to the deeper water, with the 18 to 20-metre line between Portarlington and St Leonards best. Fish over 8kg were landed, with early morning best. Bag limit captures of squid were common from Clifton Springs to Portarlington, with small jigs, generally size 2.5s in darker natural colourations, most successful. Linas Brazionis had the generally rare catch of an elephant fish off Clifton Springs while using a pilchard bait, while another of 76cm was also landed from St Helens’ rocks. Steve Stolt found whiting close to the Hermsley spoil grounds where he caught his bag limit of fish averaging 36cm and up to 42cm over two outings, with South Australian pippies his bait of choice.

On the bite BRIAN LONG Martin Shaw fished the 18m line off St Leonards for a nice capture of gummy shark, the best weighing 18.3kg cleaned the other a respectable 10.4kg cleaned. Frank McMahon made an early start at Swan Bay Jetty to land a nice gummy of 4kg, with his berley doing the trick on the garfish as the sun rose. Some of the gars he caught in his frantic hour-long session pushed 50cm. Plenty of salmon are available along the coast. Last weekend I caught and released in excess of 50 on lure at Eastern View and Lorne but failed to see a single salmon landed on bait. Point Roadknight produced both elephant fish and gummy shark after dark. Anglers are advised to fish the low tides at this time of the year with either fresh squid or fish fillets. Freshwater reports have also been consistent, with Hepburn Lagoon still providing plenty of opportunities for rainbow trout. All methods have been working, with the middle of the day apparently best. Lake Bullen Merri also improved. Anglers fishing Powerbait on the bottom from the shoreline should do well in the middle of the day. Lake Elingamite again produced the best redfin and trout, with both taken on mudeye and minnow or lures such as SX40s and Rapala X Raps. Big tuna continued to be the talk of Apollo Bay. Damien Shaw was one of many anglers to land a huge fish in the

Deep pink: Simon D’Antino with a soft-plastics-caught snapper off Portarlington past week, with his tuna pulling the scales down to over 140kg - a nice capture on 24kg tackle. Plenty of smaller tuna were also still available at Port Fairy and Portland, with many in relatively close. Interested anglers can attend a second Fisheries Victoria Recreational Fishing Roundtable Forum Geelong and District Angling Club, 9 Yuille Street, Geelong West from 7pm on Tuesday. The forum will be a chance to exchange ideas, identify opportunities and to develop working relationships with fisheries staff. Fisheries representatives will endeavour to answer all questions and share their vast knowledge during the night. This weekend’s best opportunities will be available on the surf beaches for salmon. Bay anglers will have a number of options, ranging from St Helens to North Shore rocks for salmon to chasing snapper out from the silos from late morning into the early afternoon. Send reports and photos to info@raylongtackle.com.au or visit Brian at Ray Long’s Fishing World, 105 Shannon Avenue, Manifold Heights.

NEWTOWN has recovered from a horror start to the year to sit in third place on Geelong Football League’s ladder. New coach Jacob Spolding must have wondered what he had gotten himself in for after the Eagles lost their first game of the year to North Shore, football director Terry Bright stood down, president Noel O’Dwyer retired and excaptain Michael Bright left the club for Bell Park. Since then the club has won every game and, in hindsight, the loss to North Shore wasn’t as bad as first thought, with the Seagulls a much-improved side that is this year set to play finals. This weekend the Eagles face a big test in the shape of ladder leader Bell Park when it visits Elderslie Reserve. The Dragons are firing on all cylinders, belting St Mary’s by a mammoth 140 points last week. Charlie Hallam, Den Talbot, Jackson Sheringham and James Rock are in career-best form and it’s no wonder the side is undefeated. Newtown will have to bring its A game to stay close to Bell Park because the Dragons look to hold too many aces and should win a closely fought contest. Other selections: Grovedale v WEST SAINTS, LARA v Colac, Leopold v SOUTH BARWON, NORTH SHORE v St Albans and ST JOSEPHS v St Mary’s.

BFL Queenscliff will be out to cement a top-three spot this weekend when it hosts Amateurs in Bellarine Football League’s game of the day. The Coutas are coming off a huge 129-point victory over Torquay in what was arguably their best performance in 10 years. To beat Torquay at home is not easy and to win by that much is unheard of. Dan Gibbs, Stephen Owen, Nik Orvis and Roscoe Holmes are playing exceptionally well and the Coutas will again be a premiership chance. How good a chance they are will be better known after this game because Amateurs is a good yardstick against

Local Footy FRANK MASON which to measure a team. Although not as dominant this year you can bet your life Ammos will play finals. Jason Tom and Damien Zaparenkov are firing in front of goals. Tom in particular is hard to match up due to his height and marking ability. This will be a tight contest but expect Queenscliff to take the points. Other selections: Barwon Heads v ANGLESEA, TORQUAY v Portarlington, Modewarre v OCEAN GROVE, DRYSDALE v Newcomb.

GDFL Geelong and District Football League’s game of the day is on Sunday out at Victoria Park where Bannockburn hosts Bell Post Hill. The game is also the featured game of the month, as selected by Victorian Country Football League in an initiative it started nine years ago to highlight different leagues around the state. Ron Barassi will attend and will mingle with the crowd after addressing a pre-game luncheon. Barassi will see the best of what Geelong and district league has to offer because Bell Post Hill is the reigning premiers and unbeaten this year. Bannockburn sits in the top five by percentage only and has to win this one to establish a gap between it and the rest. It’s hard to see that happening because Bell Post Hill has strength in every line and should win comfortably. Selections for Saturday’s games: Anakie v INVERLEIGH, Winchelsea v EAST GEELONG, Thomson v WERRIBEE CENTRALS, NORTH GEELONG v Belmont Lions, Geelong West v CORIO.

Return of El Grand Senor CHAMPION greyhound El Grand Senor will make a shock return from retirement to race at Corio’s Beckley Centre on Sunday, according to the sport’s state body. Greyhound Racing Victoria said the Carolyn Jones-trained sprinter would

contest a heat of the Cannonball Sprint over 400 metres from box one. El Grand Senor last raced on January 25 in a group-two victory at Warragul for a career record of 34 starts, 27 wins and $444,000 in prize money.
