about chunks of asbestos up to 20 centimetres wide strewn across the sand and rocks. “All the local surfers here know about the pipe and know it’s been exposed like it is for months and months. We get paranoid if the wind starts blowing,” Mr Bistak said. “We just can’t believe it’s still there. We have to walk right past it to go up the stairs to our cars, so of course it’s a threat.” Mr Bistak said the health hazard at Bells contradicted the essence of surfing. “We like to think of ourselves as healthy people but asbestos isn’t good. I remember watching the (Rip Curl) Pro here as a 13year-old boy but now look at the place.” Torquay’s Barbara McVey was “horrified” to see the asbestos on the beach. “I don’t understand why it’s still there. There are so many things in the world that can’t be fixed but this can be.” Scotland’s Lara McVey, who grew up in Torquay, said the asbestos was shocking. “People back home know where Bells Beach is - it’s an icon,” she said. “Why isn’t someone fixing this?” Department of Sustainability and Environment had not returned the Independent’s call for comment before the paper went to press. Surf Coast Shire refuses to answer questions from the Independent.

Good fight: Bells Beach Preservation Society’s Maurice Cole and Paul Hart show a new T-shirt design promoting their fight to protect the international surfing icon. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 61441

BY ERIN PEARSON HOLIDAY-MAKERS unwittingly frolicked amid asbestos strewn across Bells Beach on the long weekend after Surf Coast Shire ignored clean-up pleas, according to a community group. Bells Beach Preservation Society’s Paul Hart urged the shire to take immediate action to remove an exposed and damaged asbestos pipe spreading debris throughout the sand at the worldfamous break. Mr Hart and other preservation society members inspected the site this week after the Independent reported concerns that asbestos had become a health hazard at Bells. Geelong Trades and Labour Council secretary Tim Gooden was alarmed after finding the cancer-causing material on the beach and dumped under bushes. The shire responded this week with staff placing orange plastic barrier fencing around the pipe on the beach but Mr Gooden blasted the work as “not secure enough”. “More people could have potentially been exposed to asbestos. The area is supposed to be secured to the point where if someone was to enter the area they’d have to deliberately climb over a large fence to do the wrong thing. “Tape isn’t goon enough. People must be protected and know that asbestos is there.” Long-time Bells surfer Pete Bistak, of Torquay, was furious

He would also ask council to seek support from other levels of government. “We have to remain conscious that we aren’t promising to fund the building of the icon but, depending on what wins, we’d certainly seek State Government to be involved. “This has the potential to put Geelong on the map to add to the natural icons we already

A MAJOR stormwater harvesting project at Whittington’s Grinter Reserve will save 23 million litres of water a year, according to Mayor John Mitchell. He said the recycling project would supply water for sports grounds and other facilities. “This is about drought-proofing. Instead of using supplies of drinking water to irrigate our sports grounds and facilities we’re tapping into local sources of stormwater that would otherwise have been flushed out into the bay,” Cr Mitchell said. “We’re diverting stormwater from a 200-hectare catchment of residential streets in Whittington to store in a 5.5-million-litre storage dam.” Cr Mitchell said the project would also supply a proposed Men’s Shed and water street trees. The project has created a wetland area to store the water. City of Greater Geelong contributed $520,000 to the project, with federal and state governments chipping in $280,000 and $50,000 respectively.

Out tradie ‘hot stuff’ for finals

Man attacked A 56-YEAR-OLD man suffered “serious injuries” when two teenagers allegedly bashed him in central Geelong on Sunday morning, according to police. A Victoria Police spokesperson said the man was in a “verbal altercation” with the 19-year-olds about 5am, with officers later arresting the alleged attackers at the scene on the corner of Ryrie and Moorabool streets.

BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG builder Scott Abbott had reached the state final of a competition to find 2011’s “Hottest Tradie”. The 26-year-old Waurn Ponds tradesman scored over 200 votes on the website of competition organiser RSVP to earn a place among the five finalists for Victoria and Tasmania. RSVP spokesperson Lija Jarvis said more than 570 tradesmen from around Australia had entered the competition this year, with 290 from Victoria. The third annual competition was scouring the country to uncover “the hottest tradesmen Australia has to offer”, she said. Scott will vye for the title against two plumbers, an 18year-old carpenter and a landscaper for a place in the national final, scheduled for Sydney in April. Mr Abbott told the website he should win because he was a “hard-working, fun-loving Aussie bloke”. A recent survey of more than 650 women on the RSVP dating site found that 80 per cent were interested in dating a tradesman, with about a third believing the “sexiest” men worked in trades.

TAC windfall VICTORIA’S TAC headquarters has pumped $59 million into Geelong’s economy since moving to the city in 2009, according to the organisation’s chief executive officer. Janet Dore said 75 per cent of the office’s staff now lived in the Geelong region after buying 220 homes and renting a further 45.

Awards trip ALCOA will fly 10 of its Point Henry staff to Florida in the USA to attend the finals of the company’s 2011 Global Impact Awards, a spokesperson has announced. The Geelong staff were vying for two awards amid a field of 18 finalists from 317 entries around the world, the spokesperson said.

Jobs drive A GEELONG recruitment firm has put up $100,000 to find jobs for 100 young people in the city’s northern suburbs. Gforce Employment Solutions chief Sue De Gilio said the Target 100 campaign was seeking partnerships with community services and businesses to create the apprentice and trainee positions over the next two years.

Otways burn BURN-OFFS will continue in the Otways and Surf Coast until rain “interrupts” the program of reducing bushfire fuel loads, according to Parks Victoria. A spokesperson said the burns were creating “extreme smoke” along the coast, with fire crews, aircraft and machinery on standby in case of “problems”.

Aid training

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A “TOUGH YEAR” is creating a surge in Geelong businesses going broke, according to a debt collection agency. Prushka chief Roger Mendelson said the rate of business failures in the city was much higher than normal. “Geelong trade and small enterprises are finding 2011 a particularly tough year to do business,” he said. Mr Mendelson warned that a “bad debt cycle” was also affecting parts of the region’s economy, with businesses waiting for money owed to them before they could pay their own debts. “The attitude of debtors in Geelong is also making it harder for businesses to recoup money owed,” he said.

“There is an increasingly bad attitude toward repaying debt in some sectors of the community. Some debtors are angered by the fact that money they owe is being chased up. “Some debtors don’t seem to care about outstanding debts even when they have a court judgement taken out against them.” Insolvency specialist Jenkins Peake’s Geoff Ridgeway said stronger Australian Taxation Office regulation was also affecting business liquidity. “The taxman has tightened the screws and there are a lot of demands going out.” Geelong Chamber of Commerce president Jim Walsh said many busi-

nesses were doing it tough. “Consumers are being cautious, discretionary spending is tightly controlled and the high Aussie dollar makes it tough for local manufacturing. “Our interest rates by world standard are relatively high and those parts of the country that don’t get a lift from the mining boom are doing it tough.” Mr Walsh said small business had to try riding out the “testing trading environment. “It’s not entirely bleak because the fundamentals are not bad. Recovery in the US is the key to global confidence and there are some positive signs.” Geelong has experienced a series of

high-profile business failures this year including franchises of Angus and Robertson bookstores and Corio Shopping Centre’s Ed Harry menswear store. The owner of Breakwater traffic management business 24/7 Traffic, Brian Munn, said he was forced to close his Geelong operation this week and merge it with his Melbourne base. “Our contract is coming to an end and we are having a few debtor problems. “No one is losing any jobs but we’re losing money and, in this economic climate, you know what it’s like. “I don’t want to be caught holding the bag in 12 months time.”

Committee cash GEELONG councillors have agreed to spend another $20,000 on the city’s leading lobby group. They voted at their last meeting to renew council’s membership of Committee for Geelong.

Union talk for ‘start of plant’ BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN BARWON Water is set to announce the start of work on a $94 million treatment plant despite an ongoing industrial dispute over the project. Key unions are preparing to meet 8am this Friday to discuss a pay proposal for the project but Barwon Water has organised a photo opportunity at 10am to mark the start of construction. Barwon Water said the cost of the plant had also increased $4 million on the initial estimate. The Independent reported in November that the project was on hold amid the pay dispute between contractor John Holland Construction and unions. Geelong Trades Hall secretary Tim Gooden said today’s meeting

was part of on-going negotiations. Representatives of five unions would be involved in the meeting at Geelong Trades Hall, he said. “They’ll look at the proposal and possible outcomes. While we’re fairly confident, it still has to be approved.” Mr Gooden said major works would not begin at the site until May despite the Barwon Water announcement. “They’ll get the surveyors in and do some ground work. I think they’ve got one of the ministers coming down to turn a sod but nothing major will happen until after Easter.” November’s Independent report said the union agreement sought pay rates up to $1656.17 for a 35-hour week, in line with

other treatment plant projects. The dispute flared after the unions accused Barwon Water of an “act of bastardry with John Holland to undermine industrial standards”. The unions also threatened an industrial campaign if they could not reach an agreement on the project. Mr Gooden said the union demands were fair and in accordance with the law and industry practice. A Barwon Water spokesman said in November that authority believed the union’s offer would increase the cost of the project. Barwon Water and John Holland both said they had handed over labour hire to employment subcontractors.

lenges” after an “extensive” 14-month review of research activity. Corangamite MP Darren Cheeseman said Barwon Health was obviously had some difficult choices. “But this research is very important and it’s disappointing it would end this way.” Geelong MP Ian Tresize called on State Government to intervene in the research cuts. Deakin University School of Medicine head Prof Brendan Crotty said he expected the university’s research activity to increase as the institution worked with Barwon Health on projects.

Jet jobs ‘start of air growth’ BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN AN $800 million jet fighter contract will kick-start expansion of Geelong’s aeronautical industry, according to a councillor. Rod Macdonald, who holds council’s economic development portfolio, said the opportunities for Avalon from the contract were “immense”. “This is a terrific opportunity for Geelong and the region. It gives us the ability to be home to a growing aeronautical manufacturing centre,” he said. “With the plans for Avalon, we’ll look back in 20 years and see we’ve come a long way.” The Independent revealed last week that Marand Precision Engineering had won the contract to manufacture tail assemblies for a Joint Strike Fighter program, creating 300 jobs. Marand would also build highprecision ground equipment for strike fighter maintenance. Cr McDonald said Avalon remained the leading potential site for the $50 million manufacturing facility.

Last week: The Independent reveals the contract win.

Space was also available at a developing Heales Rd industrial precinct to accommodate the technologically sophisticated 10,000square-metre facility. Cr McDonald said the contract would provide spin-off opportunities for other companies in the region. “As we gain critical mass it gives us more credibility and the opportunities will grow from there. I’m ex-air force and was involved in the project to assemble the FA-18 at Avalon, so I understand the amount of work that can come from such a contract.” Cr McDonald said the region was ideally positioned to retrain people for the levels of skill required to carry out the fighter work. “Manufacturing has declined

but this gives us a chance to retrain the labour force with aviation industry skills. “We do face a challenge with skilled tradies in short supply. It means we need to attract new people to the region and train new workers.” Cr Macdonald said Deakin University was involved in talks on skills training. Avalon Airport general manager Justin Giddings said management had been in discussions with Marand. “Avalon would be the premium site, offering security, access to freight routes, testing equipment and no noise concerns,” Mr Giddings said. “We already have the maintenance facility, the airshow and we’re pushing for (an) aviation training academy. “We’re speaking to a number of other aviation-related businesses and it would make sense to have it centred at Avalon. The feedback from this State Government on the training academy has been more positive but no decision has been made.”

The announcement follows an Independent report three weeks ago that he was about to leave after the departure of fellow researcher Associate Prof Mark Kirkland.

A drop of Irish luck required at St Patrick’s festival PATRONS will need the luck of the Irish to win the main prize at a festival in Geelong this weekend, according to organisers. A spokesperson for St Patrick’s Primary School’s Irish Folk Festival said a helicopter would drop a soft toy on the school oval to determine the winner of the $1000 cash prize. The winner of “The Leprechaun Drop” would be the owner of the pre-paid and number paper plate closest to the toy after its spectacular fall. The spokesperson said the festival, three days after St Patricks Day, would also feature traditional Irish drawcards and typical school fete activities including a children’s art show in “the style and subject of renowned artists”. “The festival is organised by a group of parents. All money raised will go towards new equipment for the school, particularly focusing on the Outdoor space as the school has doubled in student numbers in the last four years.” The festival will run from 11am to 4pm Sunday at St Patrick’s Primary School, in Britannia Street, Geelong West.

Green day: St Patrick’s Primary School children and helicopter pilot Jim Ramsey promote The Leprechaun Drop as part of their Irish Folk Festival activities.

ALDI plans ‘hang in council balance’ Water Forum for Community Members and Stakeholders Geelong

You are invited… Barwon Water is hosting a forum for interested stakeholders and community members. Every five years, we update our 50-year Water Supply Demand Strategy, which is a crucial part of our Water Plan. The Water Plan is reviewed by the Essential Services Commission to determine water prices for the region. The objective of the forum is to promote public participation in the review of our Water Supply Demand Strategy and explore a collective vision for our next generation. You will hear from industry experts on how integrated water management strategies can address the challenges of climate uncertainty and population growth. We will then break into groups for facilitated discussion around the current water supply and demand situation in the Geelong region. We will explore how we can develop alternative water supply solutions for liveable communities.

BY KIM WATERS PLANS for two ALDI supermarkets hang in the balance as Geelong’s council reviews a proposal for one of the stores, according to a company spokesperson. The spokesperson said council’s decision on revised plans for the Geelong West store would affect ALDI’s bid for a second outlet at Waurn Ponds. “ALDI will make a decision on the development for Waurn Ponds site once the outcome of the Geelong West development application is known. Further details will be advised in due course,” the spokesperson said. Council initially shot the Geelong West store plan in April, saying it was “contrary” to a heritage review of the site’s Ashby precinct and would worsen traffic snarls in the area. But former Planning Minister Justin Madden approved the project in September along with ALDI stores for Highton and Drysdale. City Hall’s Joanna Van Slageren said Mr Madden approved the Geelong West supermarket subject to “some changes in the store’s layout” “The revised plans have been submitted to City of Greater Geelong for endorsement. Objectors will be provided with a copy of the revised plans for their information,” Ms Van Slageren said. Geelong councillor Barbara Abley said in October that using the site for an ALDI store was a “wasted opportunity” Mr Madden “tossed out” council’s interim heritage control because ALDI “could not or would not” incorporate it into the development, she said. “What a wasted opportunity to do something really innovative on this site instead of the usual bogstandard, ugly, box supermarket which will stand out like the proverbial sore toe among heritage-listed homes.”

Inlet’s pub ‘calls time’

NOTICE OF COUNCIL MEETING The next Meeting of the Greater Geelong City Council will be held at the Council Conference and Reception Centre, City Hall, Little Malop Street, Geelong on Tuesday 22 March 2011, commencing at 7.00pm. Details of issues to be considered will be published on the City’s website www.geelongaustralia.com.au on Friday 18 March 2011.

CHANGED TRAFFIC CONDITIONS ST HELENS BOAT RAMP UPGRADE The St Helens Boat Ramp will be closed for approximately four weeks to all boat traffic from Tuesday 15 March 2011 to upgrade the ramp from two lanes to three with associated floating pontoons. An alternative boat ramp is Limeburners Point Boat Harbour on Hearne Parade, East Geelong. Shore based fishing off the rocks and the St Helens carpark will still be accessible for public use during this period. For further information contact the City’s Environment and Natural Resources unit on 5272 4785.

Back in the day: The Inlet Hotel early last century. “It’s a spectacular place – it has got a small village community that everybody loves. From a community perspective, this place is important to the town. “I’m standing here looking at the junior football jumpers hanging up in our bar and all the other memorabilia. They don’t have another place to hang this stuff. “All the club meetings are held at the pub, so that’s where their prize possessions hang. The pub’s closure will culminate with the Airey’s Inlet Open Mic competition this weekend. Mr Jaska said he was unsure what would happed to the pub site. The hotel’s business adviser, Nick Zandes, refused to comment. The site would present an attractive proposition for residential subdivision, with its position opposite Great Ocean Road and few other allotments available in the town.

PUBLIC MEETINGS

The meeting is open to the public.

BY ERIN PEARSON MARK Jaska is a broken man. After 10 years in charge of Airey’s Inlet Hotel, the leaseholder will call last drinks this weekend at the pub in which he raised his family. Mr Jaska said the Melbourne owners’ decision not to renew the pub’s lease would leave him with no choice but to shut the venue. The closure would leave Airey’s Inlet without a meeting place for sporting clubs, its after-hour milk bar and takeaway food shop, he said. The pub had been serving as the town’s sole watering hole for more than 100 years. “It’s just surreal, that’s the only way you can describe it,” Mr Jaska said. “I’m walking around the pub selling equipment, trying to trade while trying to get my head around it all. “We’re shattered.” Albert Anderson opened the Inlet Hotel in the early 1900s when he realised a shire project would change the main route into town, according to history books. Ash Wednesday bushfires in 1983 destroyed the timber hotel but patrons rallied around a temporary bar under a tent to maintain the liquor licence until the pub’s brick replacement opened. Mr Jaska said the closure had been “imminent” for 18 months but Airey’s Inlet residents were still shocked nothing could be done to extend the lease. The closure would also cost 15 jobs, he said. Mr Jaska’s family would also feel the loss. “Our children have grown up here. They don’t know anything else.

CHOIRS are the new book clubs, if their surge in popularity is anything to go by. Geelong Youth Choir and associated group Bella Mama have two rehearsal venues at Highton and Lara, with plans for sites on the Bellarine Peninsula and Surf Coast. Choir leaders Kim Young and Denise Hollingworth see a definite swing back to group singing. Denise, the choir’s musical director since 2006, noted what she called a definite trend of people joining choirs. “There are a dozen or more choirs in Geelong now,” she estimated. “Choirs offer an opportunity for participation in music. Not everyone can sing solo but most can sing as part of a group.” Geelong Youth Choir was founded in 1980 to provide children in the city with a quality music education. The choir was more than just a sing-a-long, Denise explained. “It’s actually a comprehensive musicianship program complete with vocal training and music theory based on the Kodaly method.” Denise said several students had gone on to music careers, although the choir couldn’t claim any international stars – yet.

“Some of the kids have been mentored to become assistants and we had one student who came back to work as a teacher after graduating from the program,” she said. A committee of management runs the organisational side while four choir teachers and several assistants look after the musical tuition. Denise said the choir tried to instil a sense of community in participants by supporting other organisations and undertaking promotional activities, with the latest a fundraising concert for Geelong Animal Welfare Society. “We’re looking for business sponsors and children to join a four-week program to lead into the concert on Sunday, April 29. This project is open to young people who aren’t members of the choir but who would like to join in the efforts to raise money for GAWS.”

“DISADVANTAGED communities” will benefit if State Government sticks to plans for improving rail connections between Melbourne and regional centres including Geelong, according to Victorian Council of Social Services. Council deputy director Carolyn Atkins welcomed the new Baillieu Government’s commitment to the Regional Rail Link. She said the dedicated rail line straight to central Melbourne was “crucial to regional communities”. Transport Minister Terry Mulder recently flagged cuts to the “financially stressed” $38 billion project.

SNORING?

Join the club

Bella Mama was born after several mums, who brought their children to choir rehearsal, decided to form their own group. Mother-and-daughter members Heather and Kelly Jane said the group was now open to all women. Kelly said the choir had become a key part of her life. “I’d be lost without it,” she said. “It’s uplifting. It produces a high similar to exercise. “Singing is natural – even my two and four-year-olds do it.” Kelly believed “inhibitions” and busy lifestyles sometimes held people back from joining choirs. “But it’s easy to join and there are no auditions –- just come along.” The youth choir plans an end-ofterm concert on April 3 as well as a choral festival and a combined performance with Bay City Strings. Music camps and singing workshops are also part of the program. The choir even runs a pre-school program called Let’s Make Music under the guidance of an early childhood music specialist. Denise said more information about the youth choirs was available by phoning 0431 981 652 or email geelongyouthchoir@ymail.com.

buckets & bouquets BUCKETS to drunks who vomit near seats at the Moorabool Street bus interchange in the early hours of Sunday. Try stopping drinking while still just tipsy to avoid being sick. At least have some respect and stop making fools of yourselves. Keith, Whittington BUCKETS to Non-Cyclist Track User (Buckets and Bouquets, March 11). You wouldn’t play cricket on a golf course or football on a tennis court, so why walk dogs, ride skateboards or even play with remotecontrol cars on Belmont’s cycling track. Space for these activities is available along the river. Cyclist, Lara BOUQUETS to Point Lonsdale IGA staff for being extremely kind and welcoming to my 10-year-old autistic son each time he arrives to learn shopping skills and independence. It makes his experience more enjoyable. Mum, Point Lonsdale BUCKETS to a young mother who was unable to pay her $27 bill at ALDI Newcomb. She phoned her mum but she was “in a meeting”. I paid the bill but she never dropped by to pay me back. It was my last money until pension day. Disappointed, Newcomb BOUQUETS to Zoe and the wonderful staff at Specsavers Waurn Ponds. They went out of their way to help my daughter solve a problem with glasses from another store. They didn’t have to do what they did but it was no problem for them. Their service is top class. Alyssa’s Mum, Herne Hill BOUQUETS to a lady in a white station wagon who found my wallet after I foolishly left it in a trolley at Coles Corio. May you be rewarded with good health, happiness and fortune. Grateful Pensioner, Norlane BOUQUETS to a lady and her dog, Milo, for handing in my handbag with contents still inside at Corio South Primary School on February 22. Nicole, Corio

BUCKETS to health workers who said a doctor would reply to me in writing. Two and a half months later I sought a reply but one of the workers called security. Bouquets to security for taking my information. I hope he put it to management so I can be helped. MH, North Geelong BOUQUETS to paramedics Shaun, Hayley and Stokesy for their optimism, moral support and joviality when handling a difficult situation in getting my son to hospital on a hot day. Still Sane Mother, Hamlyn Heights BOUQUETS to a kind person who found my fluffy dog wandering in Whittington on February 27 and took him to Geelong Animal Welfare Society. Wally’s Mum, Newcomb BOUQUETS to Harvey Norman Waurn Ponds’ Kasi for all the help in the photo centre. It was old-fashioned service from a young woman with a smile. Karin, Grovedale BOUQUETS to staff at Cloud 9 Bar and Lounge for their awesome music show during Pako Festa. Everyone had a great time. All the staff, including the bouncers, were lovely. Keep up the good work. Liz, Manifold Heights BOUQUETS to the professional, caring crew of Queenscliff’s dolphin, seal and snorkeling tour business. I’m in my mid50s and the crew gave me back my confidence in life experiences. Geelong has some wonderful activities. How lucky we are to have the tours on our doorstep. Jenny, Clifron Springs

CITY of Greater Geelong’s mayor, in support of Australian Grand Prix chairman Ron Walker, has used his position to lobby for an F1 grand prix along a Geelong foreshore circuit. Mr Walker appears extremely anxious for Corio Bay to be displayed to the world on prime-time TV, which is an admirable aim but hardly one that will bring vast numbers of visitors to Geelong for a look-see. Mr Walker, in his other role as head of Victorian Major Events, seems overly enthusiastic about Geelong hosting this so-called major event. While we might hope the mayor’s primary function is to represent the interests of ratepayers, it appears there has been no consultation with them and little sign residents want the race dumped on them. In fact, very few would favour the disruption to Geelong over many weeks before and after such an event, as presently happens at Albert Park and which has residents and City of Port Phillip’s council totally opposed to the noise, inconvenience and pollution brought bym this unwanted, loss-making circus. Geelong’s mayor could earn considerable favour by creating a quite different major event that ratepayers would welcome and which would not need the support of Ron Walker and his corporate interests. This free event could last for a week each year, causing little inconvenience, if any, but would benefit us all. The name of this local major event: Hard Rubbish Collection Week.

Lessons in past TWO THINGS must happen worldwide if mankind is to survive into the next century. First, people must become aware that the term climate change has become a clicheé and a red herring to lead us into accepting highly dangerous alternative energy systems such as uranium. We turn a blind eye to deriving energy from dirty coal plants and how quickly we forget the tragic consequences for both humans and animals of the regular oil disasters. Climate change has a nice, soft connotation – everyone likes a change! How about we call it climate pollution and start talking about Earth becoming the poisoned planet of scientists playing havoc with our food, deadly sprays and 100 years of polluting industries fouling

the air that we breathe and depleting our life-giving waters. Our soil is sick and even more damaging to human survival. We are eating stressed and terrified animals. This is the real climate that will ultimately destroy us. Second, we must not look to our so-called leaders for the answer. Only the wisdom of the people can solve these problems. The Aboriginal race survived 60,000 years in Australia and latest research suggests it fathered all races and nations. Shouldn’t we ask ourselves what it was the Aborigines were practising, how they lived, how they organised themselves, what they had that we have not? June Ryan Manifold Heights

A backward story A SOCIETY either goes forward or backward. Julia Gillard’s carbon tax is a watershed tax: for the first time in our nation’s history Federal Government has decided that progress is bad. We now have to place the perceived health of the planet before our own needs and wants. We, the people, will be penalised for using the power the Government provided. Picture this: in the year 2100 a boy and his father go through the attic of the boy’s great-grandfather where they discover a photo album. The boy flips through the album and looks in wonder at the photographs. “What sort of machine is this?” he asks his father. “Oh, that’s a car,” replies his father. “They were banned 50 years ago because of the damage they did to the environment.” The boy, who also sees picture of televisions, washing machines, air-conditioners and computers, asks his father what they are. His father’s answer is nearly always the same: they were banned because of environmental concerns and also became too costly for people to buy and operate. “When did we stop using all these machines?” the boy asks. The father thinks for a minute and then replies: “Well, son, it’s a long story and it started so long ago but basically it started when the government brought in a carbon tax”. The journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. Alan Barron Grovedale

Study for plan of ‘vision’ A “SCOPING STUDY” is underway to develop an action plan for central Geelong, according to Mayor John Mitchell. He said representatives of City Hall, Committee for Geelong, Deakin University and Department of Planning and Community Development were working on the study.

Carbon taxpayers just suckers for Greens ALCOA’S Tim McAuliffe (Independent, March 11) can be sympathised with to a degree on the carbon tax yet he failed to acknowledge let alone give the numbers on the company’s massive state-taxpayer-funded power subsidy. Any additional funding for Portland ought to go to port expansion, with Alcoa pushing for the introduction of nuclear power and tidal and wind supplements. Equally out of whack was Corio MP Richard Marles’ feeble attempt to prop up the ALP’s

Green-led-for-the-time-being irrelevant carbon tax push. The electorate is being played for a sucker. Should push come to shove - and it’s only Tony Windsor who has the grey-matter to make a difference or a fresh election - it’ll be the taxpayers who wear the trickle-down unnecessary impost for a tax that has no cost/benefit-analysis benefits and no support among major international players. Richard Worland Manifold Heights

Whacking days

Fuel for thought

Clear memories

THE GREENS and other political entities are using the lame excuse of stimulating behavioural change as the impetus for a carbon tax on petrol and the transport industry. The ordinary citizen is powerless to make these changes because there are no alternatives. Hybrid vehicles are prohibitively expensive for most and pedal power to get the kids to school is, at the least, potentially dangerous in terms of accidents et cetera. The big polluters have not, to my knowledge, made any great technological efforts to stem the pollution they emit and the question still remains unanswered regarding irrefutable proof of climate change. Our Federal Government is obviously after a cash bonanza and the Greens only have a mandate to represent the few who voted them in. Given the information I recently received in regarding protests being organised and in which I intend to involve myself, the next election might be the occasion for a good whacking for some of these political entities. Tony Abbott has mentioned the political mandate term and it is well-applicable given there is no head of power for a climate change ministry. A referendum might be in order rather than the ruinous agendas of our political incumbents. Gary Oraniuk Geelong

IF WE put aside the argument of whether or not human-induced climate change is real, there are many compelling reasons for rapidly reducing our reliance on fossils fuels. First, oil is beginning to run out. Our car fleet will become increasingly electrified and for this we will need vast amounts of renewable energy. Second, the pollution given off by the burning of coal has huge, negative health implications for those living nearby. Third, the number of people employed in the renewable energy sector is greater per kilowatt produced than in the fossil-fuelburning sector. Fourth, people will become much more energy conscious and will reduce their bills. My family of four has reduced its average bill from $150 to $70 a month and we have not compromised our lifestyle. Fifth, burning fossil fuels is folly. We should be saving them for making things such as plastics, medicines and fertilisers Sixth, alternative energy is safer than nuclear and coal-fired power and is forever. Seventh, being energy self-sufficient reduces the national deficit and allows us to be less reliant on unstable regimes. Eighth, not importing oil prevents ships spilling their cargo into our oceans. Lastly, the price of carbon being discussed is miniscule in the great scheme of things and is already working effectively in Europe, Asia and parts of North America. Leigh Adamson Belmont

RECENTLY there was talk about opening the Otways for stock grazing. It was also reported there had never been stock in the Otways. This wast untrue. In 1865 one run based at Moggs Creek ran 192 cattle in the area. Another run based at Grassy Creek ran 1037 cattle through to Lorne. Their access was via a track back over the hills to the Bambra and Deans Marsh area. Apart from the dairy products, meat et cetera, cattle were used for power needs throughout the Otways. Others followed, my grandfather included, with both cattle and sheep up to about 70 years ago when livestock grazing was banned. Photos of the early days show very little timber in this area. In fact, farmers used to grow grain and vegetables in the Fairhaven and Eastern View area. Of all things, there was a nine-hole golf course inland from the Great Ocean Road arch at Eastern View. Now the country has changed with more trees that drop leaves et cetera every year, in turn creating more food for fires, which can then easily become out of control on bad days.

Farewells go on-line uckers Funeral and Bereavement Service is now offering webcasting of funerals as an option without additional cost. Tuckers chief executive officer Mark Osborne says the webcasting service has been “warmly received”. New to Geelong, the webcasting service uses latest video streaming technology to send audio and visual footage of funerals via the Internet. “Broadcasting the funeral service online allows family and friends that are separated by distance to be a part of the celebration of life,” Mr Osborne says. “We’re able to capture the same scenes viewed by those attending the funeral service.

Using a website address and a password anyone is able to view the funeral service live-to-air. A video file of the full funeral service is also available for playback at a later date.

School of Broadway BY ERIN PEARSON OLD-school variety entertainment is on its way back, according to Broadway performer David Campbell. The son of legendary Aussie musician Jimmy Barnes told the Independent that an audience was increasingly developing for the bright lights of Broadway over the blood, sweat and tears of rock concerts. Campbell said the return of hit musicals such as Xanadu and Rock of Ages was helping bring back what he labelled “classic entertainment”. On the eve of his performance in Geelong next month, Campbell attributed his success in cabaret to the influence of his grandmother. “My grandmother brought me up and we listened to Johnny Mathieson and watched movie musicals that had old-world style before I even knew about my dad,” he said. “All that stuff is coming back” Campbell left school in Adelaide to seek work in Sydney’s entertainment industry as a teenager with limited singing and acting ability. The move was a step up from his previous Sunday afternoon garage jams with friends over takeaway hamburgers, he said.

Old school: David Campbell will perform the hits of Broadway in Geelong next month.

“We weren’t nearly as savvy as some kids these days. “I never thought I could make a career out of it.” Since then Campbell has starred in many Broadway musicals in New York, had a hit role in Australian musical Shout! and appeared in classic musicals like Carousel, Company and Opera Australia’s production of Pirates of Penzance. Campbell said he was “looking forward” to getting back to “smaller communities” after years of organising an Adelaide cabaret festival with wife Sally. “I never really get the time to do it properly but I found a block of time free. I could have done the sensible thing and taken some time off but wanted to get out there,” he said. “I’ll be bringing something different to Geelong than ever before. People can expect some Broadway stuff and a lot of swing.” Campbell said he would perform tracks from his collection of top 10 albums, such as Bring Him Home, You’ll Never Walk Alone, Shout, Good Lovin, She’s My Baby, Keep On Runnin and Just A Gigolo. David Campbell will perform his Broadway and Beyond show at Geelong Performing Arts Centre on May 1.

Brioche caters for ‘all events’ CATERING and cafe specialist Brioche offers customers oldfashion homemade meals for all events from long lunches to large weddings. Located on West Fyans Street in Newtown, Brioche opened 12 months ago to offer finger food, tasty morsels, homemade soups and delicious lunches all week. Owner David Pollitt says his catering service can feed anywhere from 12 to 180 guests, weekends and weekdays. “We used to own our own retreat in the Otways where we serviced weddings and confer-

ences for 10 years. This experience means we’re now able to bring that experience to Geelong, as well as continue to cater for the Surf Coast region,” David says. “If patrons are looking for a light and airy cafe minus the loud music with plenty on onsite parking, then Brioche is the go.” The lunch menu costs no more than $17 a dish and includes egg and bacon scones, beef and Guinness pie, Atlantic salmon poached in white wine, cannelloni, a roast of the week and more. “Why not follow lunch with a delightful homemade dessert dish

of panna cotta or creme caramel,” David suggests. Customers seeking a catering package can choose from appetisers including homemade risotto balls, noodle boxes, pumpkin and feta tarts, smoked salmon on mini pancakes, salt and pepper squid, Chinese dumpling, bruchetta and more. Brioche cafe and catering service is at 175 West Fyans Street. The cafe is open 9.30am to 4pm weekdays and available for functions on weekends. More information is available by phoning 4208 0441.

rovedale’s Sandstone Cafe has caused quite a stir thanks to its delicious menu and stellar service following a major revamp. Owner and chef, Simon Parrott says after seven months in charge he’s seen the cafe grow in popularity with nearby residents and others from outer suburbs. “Our weekend breakfasts are fast becoming a regular starting point for a lazy weekend,” Simon says. “Sandstone Cafe has become a real hub and a comfortable meeting place for many locals. Most of my customers are coming in several times a week and I’m overawed by the loyalty they show us. “Come in and see what everyone is talking about. We have new menu items, a great outdoor dining area and great wine list.” Sandstone Cafe offers diners contemporary Australian cuisine with a strong seafood influence. With the café also fully licensed, patrons are welcome to visit just for a glass of wine or a beer from the extensive wine list.

A

pretty well, with good turn-in and not too much understeer if pushed. The hot sports models are amazingly good for front-wheel drive cars. There is a good number of Honda dealers Australian wide, with this Japanese company being reasonably well represented in country areas. Spare parts and servicing are usually well priced, with Honda having put some hard work into pulling prices down a few years back when it had a reputation for charging top dollar for spare bits. Insurance charges are about average for a sporting coupe, meaning fairly expensive but not outrageously so. Few companies seem to understand that there are some really hot variants amongst them. All Honda Integras are built to a high quality in the Japanese manner and the combination of sportiness and quality means they retain their value well. The Integra suffered from the general decline in popularity of sports coupes that began early in the 21st century. Beware of the Honda Integra that has been thrashed by a sporting driver. Excessive brake-pad dust, usually at its worst on the insides of the front wheels and callipers, is another indication of hard driving. They really should be checked by a Honda dealer, or at least a specialist technician from a motoring association. Pay attention to the transmission during your road test and be sure it works smoothly and easily with a minimum of noise. Look over the interior for signs of damage. Though they usually age well they can suffer rough treatment. Listen for squeaks or rattles inside the car during the test drive, a rough road will magnify.

BY ERIC BLAIR mid-sized sports model from Honda, the Integra changed its character on more than one occasion over the years. For a lot of the time it was more of an attractive cruiser than a true sports machine. At other stages it was a fullon sports machine. In particular, the third-generation Honda Integra Type R, is a semi-race machine. While it had been on sale in Japan for quite some time it didn’t reach Australia until August 2000. Having introduced us to the delights of a genuine sports machine in that first Type R, Honda went and spoiled things with the fourth-generation Integra from August 2001. It was a softer car than its predecessor, though still reasonably easy to punt hard, and it created a lot of poor publicity for Honda in Australia at the time. It wasn’t until October 2004 that Honda woke up to itself and brought in another ‘proper’ sports Integra, this time tagged as the Type S. As well as these super-hot models there are plenty of other good variants in the Integra lineup. Engines are 1.8 litres until the fourth-generation model of 2001, when the capacity climbed to 2.0 litres. However, Honda’s ability to get big power from smallish engines is renowned and the hottest of them all, the limited edition Type R of 2000 managed a hefty 141 kW from its 1.8 litres. Transmission choices are five-speed manual in most models, with the Type R and Type S getting six-speed manuals. Four-speed automatic transmissions with a conventional change were offered until the 2001 fourth-generation Integra arrived with a five-speed auto using sequential manual overrides. Even the standard models handle

Jaguar is an armchair ride W

allington musician Andy Richardson lived in London for nearly 10 years during the 1970s where he spent his days busking in tube stations. “At night I’d watch this British TV show called Minder and the lead character Terry drove a stylish Jaguar. I thought what a groovy old car. It was a silver XJ6 with a vinyl roof. “I always thought I’d love to own one of those old cars, one day.� Fifteen years ago, Andy was playing gigs in Melbourne and living at Apollo Bay, so to save money he stayed with his mother in Toorak. She happened to mention one day that her neighbour, Jeff Wales, had an old Jaguar in his garage for sale. “The 1976 metallic silver Jaguar XJ had been sitting in the garage for several years and for some reason the roof and bonnet paint work had been burnt or had faded badly,� Andy recalled. “I bought the car for $1000. “The first job I did on it, because I got it at such a good price, was have it stripped back and resprayed. “There was a really good duco man in Colac who did a good job and it came up like brand new. I think I spent a couple of thousand dollars on the paint job. He had to strip off the old paint before he painted it in Old English white. “That was done 15 years ago but the paintwork still looks almost new,� Andy said. Andy said he drove the car for the next nine years without incident, until a trip to Warrnambool. “I was down in Warrnambool, in 2005, visiting an old muso friend of mine, Shane Howard, when the car just stopped. “I’m not sure what was wrong with it but we managed to get it to another friend’s house and park it. I was then forced to get the train home.� Andy is otherwise known as Howlin’ Wind, a renowned flute player. “I asked around Warrnambool and everybody recommended this great mechanic called Terry Mansbridge. Apparently he is quite a legend in the south west of Victoria. “He took it upon himself to do up the motor. I think I must have blown a head gasket or something. “It’s a straight six, 4.2 engine with SU

Wane’s Wheels GREG WANE Carburettors and a three-speed auto gearbox and since the motor was done up it drives like a dream,� Andy said. “It has twin exhaust and goes like the wind.� Andy said he felt very connected to the road and the car was extremely quiet inside. “In fact at 100km/h you can just hear the little clock ticking. It must be beautifully made the way the motor is baffled off from the driver you can hardly hear a thing.� It is ride comfort that Andy enjoys the most. “Imagine sitting back in your most comfy lounge chair, except that you are moving forward, that best describes the ride comfort. “But there are still things about the car that drive me crazy. “She gets really hot, particularly when I am stuck in traffic like on the West Gate Bridge and you start to think I am not going to get home. “It gets really hot. It does need the air flowing through it. “The car does best on a winter’s day, or on a summers night,� Andy admitted. Regularly checking the coolant level is a must. The other small issue Andy said he has with the old Jag is the windscreen wipers. “The wipers get stuck in a storm, they are a bit old world. They are little thin things that don’t clear the water quick enough. I don’t think they have rain drops the size of your thumbnail in England. “I have them going flat out and they just swish it around the windscreen. These silly little blades, are nothing like the fancy modern cars. “So my advice is if you have an old Jag, don’t

Inheritance: Andy and son Frank will head off in the Jag on a road trip next year after Frank gets his L plates. Pictures: Tommy Ritchie 61558 take it out on a stormy day,� Andy advised. He was quick to dismiss these annoyances as only minor, compared to the whole enjoyment of the car. “And have I mentioned the sound system? It is old technology, 1976. It’s a pretty daggy old radio and a cassette player. I have heaps of cassettes and with the four big speakers, one in each door, the sound is truly surround and full, not a sample like digital.� Andy, knows a thing or two about music – as Howlin’ Wind, he has been recording his flute for 42 years and is about to release his 34th commercial album at the end of March. “It’s called Morning Light and was recorded at my

new home studio at Wallington. I moved here after spending 25 years at Apollo Bay. The album was inspired by my new surroundings on the Bellarine Peninsula. Andy’s son Frank, 15, will inherit the car and has already taken ownership and is getting behind-thewheel experience by driving the car around the family’s large circular driveway. “When Frank gets his ‘Ls’ in January we are going on a road trip to Bendigo and across to Mortlake in the old Jag so I am looking forward to that.�

The Hon Matthew Guy MLC, Minister for Planning, has appointed an Advisory Committee under section 151 of the Planning and Environment Act 1987 to advise on the planning, consultation and approval arrangements for Section 4C of the Geelong Ring Road. The Advisory Committee will also consider the relative merits and impacts (economic, environmental and social) of the approved alignment of Section 4C of the Geelong Ring Road compared with any other alignments previously considered by Vic Roads, the City of Greater Geelong, or any other relevant government strategic planning investigation. The Advisory Committee’s tasks and process for conducting a hearing to consider these matters are set out in the Terms of Reference dated 22 February 2011. The Terms of Reference can be viewed on the Department of Planning and Community Development (DPCD) website www.dpcd.vic.gov.au/planningpanels by selecting ‘Current Planning Panels and Advisory Committees’. This review is to have regard to the function of the road to provide an east-west arterial road connection, and Barwon River crossing to service the southern suburbs of Geelong and Armstrong Creek, as well as the Bellarine Peninsula. The Advisory Committee is also to consider any additional remedial measures that could be incorporated into the design and development of the Section 4C alignment to address environmental and amenity impacts on existing and future residents. The previous Minister for Planning approved Amendment C232 to the Greater Geelong Planning Scheme which applied a Public Acquisition Overlay (PAO3) to enable VicRoads to acquire the land to construct Section 4C of the Geelong Ring Road. The Advisory Committee will review this part of the Amendment. The previous Minister for Planning also approved as part of Amendment C232 to the Greater Geelong Planning Scheme the application of a Public Acquisition Overlay (PAO9) to enable the Department of Transport to acquire the land to construct the Armstrong Creek West Station and car park (south side). The Advisory Committee will not review the application of the PAO9. Background material for Amendment C232 is available on the DPCD website for information. Copies of this information will also be available for viewing at the following locations: City of Greater Geelong Customer Service Centre 131 Myers Street GEELONG Department of Planning and Community Development State Government Offices Level 4, Corner Fenwick and Little Malop Streets GEELONG VicRoads South West Regional Office 180 Fyans Street SOUTH GEELONG Or online at: http://www.dpcd.vic.gov.au/planningpanels/ The Advisory Committee invites submissions from any party with an interest in the planning of Section 4C of the Geelong Ring Road with regard to the matters set out in the Terms of Reference. Submissions should be accompanied by a Request To Be Heard form ad sent to: Chair Geelong Ring Road Section 4C Advisory Committee Planning Panels Victoria Department of Planning and Community Development GPO Box 2392 MELBOURNE 3001 Submissions can also be sent via e-mail to planning.panels@dpcd.vic.gov.au or faxed to (03) 9637 9700. Request To Be Heard forms can be obtained from Planning Panels Victoria. All submissions will be treated as public documents and will be published on the DPCD website. Submissions must be received by Planning Panels Victoria by close of business on Monday 11 April 2011. The Advisory Committee will hold a Directions Hearing on Monday 18 April 2011 and will hold public hearings in the week commencing 9 May 2011. The location and time of these hearings will be confirmed following the close of submissions. If you have any questions contact Mark Gregory, Action Planning Coordinator, Department of Planning and Community Development on telephone 5226 4001 or email mark.gregory@dpcd.vic.gov.au Any inquiries concerning the hearing process should be directed to Greta Grivas, Project Officer, Planning Panels Victoria on (03) 9637 9692.

Greyhound club set for launch day

Off and racing: The Beckley Centre’s headquarters, above, and the first turn on the inside Graeme Bate track, below.

A simple way for job seekers and employers to come together

GEELONG Greyhound Racing Club is preparing to take the wraps off its $8.2 million redevelopment at Corio’s Beckley Park. Club chairman Maurie Blair said racing would recommence with the launch of The Beckley Centre on April 15. The night would feature racing over 400m, 460m and 680m on the centre’s outer track and over 520m and 596m on its Graeme Bate track, named after the sport’s famous Lara trainer. “The opening of The Beckley Centre will be the culmination of years of planning and development around the original concept of a track within a track,” Blair said. If I may use a recent quote: Good things are the result of good ideas, good forward planning and great management. “We at Geelong have experienced all (these) elements, resulting in a world-class facility.” Public trialling was set to commence this week.

sport Cats blast into semis

Lowdown: Dylan Pace with a 1.5kg bream from the bottom reaches of the Barwon River.

Barwon bream biting, surf salmon striking On the bite BRIAN LONG tent but anglers had to fish the shallow water over the grass beds in generally under three metres of water. Productive jig colours varied, with most anglers finding size 2.5 jigs best. Dean Stranger berleyed over a patch of grass near the mouth of Swan Bay where he started catching whiting to 36cm. After about two hours the berley really came into play, with Dean catching three big flathead to 58cm on bluebait. Stuart Sunders fished Governor Reef for his bag-limit of whiting, with the same result on a follow-up session two days later. Most of Stuartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fish averaged 33 but he landed two of 42cm, while his South Australian pippies out-fished even the fresh squid he caught earlier in the day. Soft plastics anglers found good numbers of snapper and flathead around the outer-harbour, with the best results close in at Kirks Point all the way down to Long Reef. Snapper to 3kg were taken, with many fish just over 1kg. Flathead of close to 1kg were also taken in good numbers, with Gulp fourinch minnows in the Nuclear Chicken

Cu r

SOME outstanding captures were taken last weekend from both the salt and freshwater across the region. Dylan Pace was surprised while fishing the lower end of the Barwon River estuary to catch a thumping bream of 1.5kg while targeting trevally on soft plastics. Dylan also took mullet, flathead, salmon and whiting in a hot session. Perry McMillan also fished the Barwon estuary for bream. Fishing close to the Ocean Grove boat ramp he landed three fish to 1.2kg on Atomic bream shad lures. Salmon start turning up consistently on our beaches in winter but are available in good numbers now. My group spent most of last weekend fishing Fairhaven, Eastern View and Stoney Creek where we caught any number of fish under 1kg. Bait has been producing fish but metal baitfish-profile lures and soft plastics worked a treat. Shane Tyson fished in perfect conditions off Apollo Bay on Saturday for a bag of flathead, snapper and whiting in close along with a huge 70cm silver trevally he estimated at 3kg. Darryl Sharp fished just off Barwon Heads where he caught snapper, flathead and a 8.3kg gummy shark. Other boats close were also catching snapper. Salmon remained inconsistent in the Queenscliff area but Shaun Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Toole found them close in at Edwards Point. Trolling small, white occies worked for a while but Shaun eventually switched to casting small, metal baitfish lures for a final tally of around 30 salmon caught and released. Squid continued to be extremely consis-

is w le

colour the lure of choice for the most successful anglers. Perry Sharp fished the spoil grounds off Hermsley where small snapper almost cleaned up a 2kg block of pilchards before his two rods folded with screaming reels. Perryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3.2kg and 3.6kg snapper certainly made up for the little pickers. Stingaree Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spoil grounds was again difficult to go past, with plenty of small snapper available. Bait and lure were working but the latter consistently produced the better fish, particularly on high tide running off. Greg Freeman fished North Shore rocks for a mixed bag of snapper and flathead. Greg said the fish came right on the bite close to dark and continued to bite up until 9pm, around the time he lost a much better fish that tangled his line on the rocks. West Barwon Reservoir returned trout to just over 1kg on both worm or mudeye fished under a float. Lures were also working, particular with small Tassie Devils in the gold colours. Wurdee Boluc Reservoir produced its small fish but trout and redfin to 1.5kg are available on bait or lure, with late afternoon currently producing the best captures. Eastern Viewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high tides around midday should be a good option this weekend along with Stingaree Bay for snapper during the the afternoon high tides up to dark.

GEELONG Cricket Club has powered into this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Premier League semi-finals with a dominant victory over Melbourne. The victory was Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second over the perennial finalist in as many weeks. Batting first on Saturday, Geelong set up its win on the back of a stunning 150 by Tom Elliott in an innings taking over four and a half hours. Skipper Liam Buchanan made a nice half-century before up-and-coming star Hayden Butterworth scored his maiden century at premier level to finish 110 not-out. On Sunday, Buchanan and coach Damien Shanahan quickly summed up the track and decided spin was the order of the day. Off-spinner Luke Muller sent down 26.5 overs for a career-best return of 5/104, while leg spinner Jeremy Hart bowled 16 overs for four wickets of his own. This weekend the Cats host Frankston Penninsula. Geelong Cricket Association also enters semi-final weekend, with two crackerjack games scheduled in division one. Top-placed Grovedale destroyed Lara last weekend at Winter Reserve on a water-damaged pitch. The Tigers elected to bowl first and reaped the rewards, bowling out Lara for just 100. The Cats struck back early, reducing Grovedale to 2/11, but the experienced Tigers top order was too classy and passed the small total five down. They return to Winter Reserve to take on South Barwon, which went down to Geelong West last week in a high-scoring game that perhaps exposed the Swansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lack of penetration with the ball. With just one win in its past five finals, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to see South Barwon finding the artillery to trouble Grovedale. East Belmont and Geelong West will clash at Burdoo Reserve in the weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other match. East Belmont moved through to this stage with a minimum of fuss, disposing of Bell Post Hill last week in clinical fashion. Selections: GROVEDALE v South Barwon, EAST BELMONT v Geelong West. In division two Geelong City plays Highton at the South Barwon number-

Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE two ground in a match that appears fairly one-sided. Geelong City is in awesome form, while Highton is still alive despite losing to Torquay last week. The other match at Richmond Crescent pits St Albans Breakwater against Torquay. The Saints may have been fortunate to reach this stage after their first final was rained out last Sunday when they were under the pump. Their achillesheel top order failed to fire, being dismissed for just 122 by Alexander Thomson before the Vikings reached 4/69 until the rain intervened. Torquay will be keenly aware of the Saintsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; batting frailties and will look to pile on the pressure this week just as it did last week when disposing of Highton. Selections: GEELONG CITY v Highton, St Albans Breakwater v TORQUAY. With early-season favourites Teesdale and Meredith now out of the competition, the division three flag is right up for grabs. In the first game, this seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big improver, Lethbridge, takes on Winchelsea at Modewarre. Winchelsea has had the wood over their northern neighbour for a few years now but Lethbridge is a different outfit these days and its refreshed team will look to drive the message home that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s here to stay. At Lethbridge, Bell Park plays Little River in what should be an even game. Little River has been one of the more-consistent teams all season, while Bell Parkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s results have been patchy. Both teams have match-winners, though, and if any one of them has a big one thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a grand final around the corner. Selections: LETHBRIDGE v Winchelsea, LITTLE RIVER v Bell Park.
