New rules to give caravan park hogs heave-ho in favour of casuals

Here comes the chop: Environment and Climate Change Minister Gavin Jennings announces the cap on long-term camp sites in Torquay this week. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 47461

BY ALEX DE VOS NEW RULES will force out long-term carvan park campers in favour of casuals as part of a management shake-up announced in Torquay this week. Environment and Climate Change Minister Gavin Jennings said the changes would provide a "fairer go to all people wanting to visit our popular caravan and camping sites". Under existing arrangements, campers with 12month site leases are allowed to roll over their entitlements each year without park managers offering the sites to anyone else. "This has meant that some people have had exclusive access to the same site for many years, freezing out others who are equally entitled to use that public site," Mr Jennings said. "As a result, these people have effectively had a never-ending lease on the public land site when the regulations were designed to allow one-year access." Mr Jennings said the new legislation, which applied to the state's 175 public caravan parks, would cap long-term sites at nine years. "The new guidelines will also halt the practice of some people selling their caravans on-site, which has the potential of giving buyers the impression the site was part of the purchase," he said. Surf Coast Shire Community and Ratepayers Association president Spencer Leighton slammed the changes. "I think that if it doesn't need fixing, why fix it," he said. "We've had people stay in the caravan park for years, hand down the sites to other people then come to live in Torquay. You'd be surprised at how much of the community is like that." Mr Leighton labelled the plan a "bit communistic". "They're telling you what you can and cannot do even if you're doing the right thing - why bother if people are paying their dues. "I'd tell them (State Government) to mind their own business."

6.9% rates hike shock Local ratepayers have to fork out all the time and it's a lot for people to deal with," Ms Smith said. Surf Coast councillors approved their 2010/2011 budget on Wednesday night, predicting debt to balloon to $17.26 million over the next three years. Under the new budget the shire also plans to sting each ratepayer an extra $20 as part of a municipal charge.

Cr Coker said the higher rate was essential to meeting the needs of a "rapidly growing population and the construction of the community and civic precinct development". Cr Joe Remenyi warned his colleagues they must “reign back” rates in subsequent years. He said the proposed hike was “uniquely high”. “We need to take the services and review them, ask what the

community wants and what they will pay for. “I approve the budget but I can’t walk away from the rate increase. I stress that we need to reign in spending so we are not leading the way in rate rises.” Ms Smith said the new shire offices were not worth the cost to ratepayers. "We're going to have to pay for years in the future because of the

huge civic precinct - the Taj Mahal," she said. "I can't believe they've done what they've done. Everything to do with the precinct has exploded - nothing was costed to the maximum and now we've got to wear it." City of Greater Geelong and Borough of Queenscliffe have proposed rates increases of 4.9 and 5.5 per cent respectively.

BY ANDREW MATHIESON A COURT case involving former Moorabool Street convenience store operators allegedly owing hundreds of hours in unpaid wages has been adjourned to include more workers in the hearing. But Unite, the fast food and retail union, claims the six former 7-Eleven employees who will front Melbourne Magistratesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Court later in the year to recoup their losses are about half the workers with underpayment complaints against the operators. The Fair Work Ombudsman is taking legal action against owners Hao â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Eddieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Chen and Xue Jing, of Toorak. Lawyers have lodged documents alleging that between 2005 and 2009 four Geelong convenience workers were underpaid a total of $85,408, including $40,583 for one worker alone. But the Ombudsman asked the court for an adjournment on Wednesday to include a further two men to the case.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;They said evidence had come to light of more exploitation,â&#x20AC;? Unite secretary Anthony Main said. He alleged that the Fair Work Ombudsman was aware several more former 7-Eleven employees had complained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is 12 or 13 blokes down there that have worked in that Moorabool Street store that have come to the Workplace Ombudsman with various degrees of evidence,â&#x20AC;? Mr Main said. The Ombudsman claimed the men were paid flat rates of between $9 and $11.50 per hour and Mr Chen had entered false information into the 7-Eleven payroll system. The Ombudsman has alleged the operators listed the workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pay rates at double what they were paid and recorded half the number of hours to make it appear the employees were paid correctly. Penalty rates were allegedly dumped for weekend, night and public holiday work, workers were not paid annual leave entitle-

ments and some were required to undertake unpaid training, the Ombudsman alleged. The court has ordered mediation between the two parties for August before returning for a directionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hearing the next month. Defence lawyers for Mr Chan and Mr Jing are arguing the former central Geelong store owners should have to pay just costs if found guilty. But the Ombudsmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office is seeking further penalties. Mr Main said the union was concerned the case could drag on for years. One Indian workerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s visa expires in October. Many of the workers are international students trying to pay their way through Deakin University. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is quite frustrating because these guys made the complaint in December, 2008,â&#x20AC;? Mr Main said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By the time they get paid weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be looking at a time closer to December, 2010.â&#x20AC;?

Critics slam policy to ban coast wind farms BY KIM WATERS A SUSTAINABILITY group has slammed the state opposition for vowing to establish “no-go” zones for wind farms on the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula. Geelong Sustainability Group president David Campbell labelled the policy “disappointing and negative”. “This is disappointing given it’s the first we’ve heard of the Victorian Liberals’ policies on climate change and energy,” Mr Campbell said. “Rather than taking a restrictive and negative approach on wind farms, the Liberals should be telling us how they’re going to meet the challenges of

climate change. The need is to move to renewable energy and with positive leadership we could develop a huge potential for renewable energy and green jobs in our region.” Opposition leader Ted Bailleu has promised to reinstate local government as the planning authority for wind farm applications, with tourist destinations ruled out for wind farm turbines. Planning Minister Justin Madden has existing powers to approve proposals for wind farms capable of generating maximum power over 30MW. Mr Madden described the Liberal policy as “bizarre”. He warned that reinstating local

government as the planning authority for wind farm applications would “kill-off” the industry. “You won’t have any clear decisions being made on the merits on the project but on particular concerns at a local government level,” Mr Madden said. “What this will do is basically hamstring the industry, deliver uncertainty to the industry, kill off the industry and kill off renewable energy.” Liberal South Barwon candidate Andrew Katos backed his party. “The Bellarine Peninsula and the Great Ocean Road are tourist attractions and putting wind turbines there would spoil them,” Mr Katos said.

“Under the Brumby Government there has been a lot of confusion about the process. This policy will clear up the confusion by setting clear guidelines.” Bellarine Liberal candidate Kurt Reiter said hundreds of turbines were operating in Victoria with more than a thousand already approved or on drawing boards “The Coalition policy will give power back to communities to decide whether wind farms can be built in areas like the Bellarine and will protect sensitive environments throughout regional Victoria with the introduction of no-go zones,” he said.

in brief Oldie shaken AN 89-YEAR-OLD woman was left “visibly shaken” after waking in fright on the weekend to find two youths ransacking her North Geelong home in the middle of the night. Police said the “short and skinny” youths had hoodies pulled over their heads as they stole a handbag and other personal items.

Jobs boon “STRONG action” on climate change would create 34,378 jobs in the Geelong region, according to a joint study between Australian Conservation Foundation and the country’s council of trade unions. The organisations said the research, based on “comprehensive economic modelling”, predicted Australian households would be 10 per cent better off by 2030 if Federal Government enacted policies favouring clean businesses over “dirty” industries.

’Chute down A PILOT and his passenger are recovering from cuts and fractures after a motorised parachute hit a tree at Leopold on the weekend. Police said emergency services workers had to rescue the pair from the tree after their aerochute accident about two to three minutes after take-off on Saturday morning.

Chocolate freebies TRADERS in central Geelong will hand out vouchers for chocolate biscuits next week as part of a campaign to attract shoppers. The Central Geelong Marketing campaign will offer a voucher for a free pack of Tim Tams from a May Magic shopfront in Ryrie Street to each shopper spending $20 at selected businesses from Monday to next Friday.

Curlewis trial A FUNDING grant will help Curlewis Golf Club trial a “sewer mining plant” capable of producing 70 million litres of water a year with varying nitrogen levels to suit seasonal demand for turf. A spokesperson said the innovative project would help save on drinking water as well as nitrogen purchases for fertiliser.

NEED CASH FAST? Laughter best medicine as Ted pays hospital visit BY KIM WATERS VENTRILOQUIST David Strassman spread his magic at Geelong Hospital this week, lighting up the day of sick children and tired parents in the paediatric ward. The American performer walked through the ward with his cuddly puppet, Ted E Bare and watched each child’s face brighten as he chatted and joked. Four-year-old Jorja Hanson, of Colac, proudly showed off her own collection of stuffed toys as she gig-

gled at Ted E Bare’s bandaged arm. Jorja’s mum, Kate Hanson, said laughter relieved the tension of long hospital visits. “Jorja has been in and out of hospital since she was little and this kind of thing is just great to see,” Ms Hanson said. “It really makes her day and definitely helps with the whole healing process. “It’s nice to watch her giggle and it takes her mind off being sick.” Four-year-old Genevieve McGuane, from Cororooke, also

enjoyed Ted E Bare’s attention. Genevieve was diagnosed with leukaemia 18 months ago. Her father, Bill McGuane, said treatment had been tough. “The last few days have been pretty rough, so it’s really good to see her with a smile on her face,” Mr McGuane said. “It’s great that Mr Strassman has made a special effort to come here and brighten up her day, she’s loved it.” David Strassman said he had visited and entertained children in hospi-

tals around the world since 1980. “I have the ability to bring a smile to a sick child’s face and break through the delicate and complex hospital situation,” Mr Strassman said. “I’m able to give something back to the community and being a father myself I can see how important it is for the kids and their parents. “Some of these kids and their parents basically live in the hospital, so giving them a little bit of happiness can make a big difference in their lives.”

Geelong ‘worst’ for dementia BY ALEX DE VOS A NEW report has revealed Geelong has the most dementia sufferers in the state. Alzheimer’s Australia Victorian chief executive Lynette Moore said the statistics revealed 3300 Geelong residents suffered dementia, making the city the state’s leading hot-spot for the disease.

Ms Moore expected the figures to rise to 13,000 by 2050, an increase of nearly 400 per cent. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. As the incurable and deadly disease advances, symptoms include confusion, irritability and aggression, mood swings and long-term memory loss. Gradually bodily functions are lost, eventually causing death.

Ms Moore called on governments to “urgently” address the epidemic. “The new reports tell us dementia cannot be ignored,” she said. “The burden of care is going to fall more onto families and there are already waiting lists and the needs of families are simply not being met. “Families deserve better than

this – our governments need to urgently start funding more services in the specific areas of greatest needs and address the statewide issues like awareness, risk reduction promotion and research.” Ms Moore said the disease was the third leading cause of death in Australia. “In 10 years time there will be

98,000 people with dementia in Victoria – a 50 per cent increase on 2010. This disease is going to have a huge impact on our health and social welfare systems, as well as the lives of individuals and families.” Ms Moore welcomed Federal Government’s proposed health reform promising more doctors, nurses and hospital beds.

However, she said more funding was needed to support people with dementia. Federal Ageing Minister Justine Elliot said she recognised the “impact of dementia on our ageing population”. The Federal Government was “investing” in additional services for sufferers and carers as well as research to combat the disease.

Homes bid foiled A DEVELOPER has lost its bid for a 16-lot housing subdivision at Bell Post Hill after residents appealed to the state’s planning tribunal. The tribunal ruled the Kardinia Drive bid unacceptable for its “design, its response to the site’s context and its relationship to the character of the area”.

Sign of the times: Colin Springall, left, and Lewis Ferrier with the new sign they believe is inadequate to warn swimmers of the dangers awaiting at Shortland Bluff Beach. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 47415

Fear signs pointing to repeat of ’60s beach horror BY KIM WATERS REMOVAL of a rip warning sign at a Queenscliff beach has sparked fears of history repeating with a spate of drownings. Long-time residents believe authorities have forgotten lessons of the past when Shortland Bluff Beach claimed three lives in the 1960s. The 2.4-metre sign previously stood 20 metres from the shoreline, warning swimmers of a strong undertow. The sign was removed last month and replaced with a smaller warning near steps to the beach. Former sea pilot master Colin Springall, of Queenscliff, said the new safety sign at the Ocean View

beach steps did little to alert swimmers to the dangerous rip. “The original sign was erected in the ’60s when three people drowned from that rip in a month,” Mr Springall said. “In the last few years the sign has faded and it needed to be replaced but there is no way they should have just gotten rid of it.” “Hundreds of people swim at that beach and they won’t notice the little sign council has put in but that big sign was hard to ignore.” Fisherman Lewis Ferrier requested the original sign in 1962 after the spate of drownings. “A lot of people who swim at that beach enter via the rocks on the side,

so they won’t even see the new safety sign,” Mr Ferrier said. “If anyone had been around when those three little kids drowned in the ‘60s they wouldn’t be happy about the old sign being removed. “It’s a really dangerous undertow and one little sign at the top of the beach doesn’t do enough to warn residents and tourists of the danger.” But Point Lonsdale Surf Life Saving club spokesperson Matthew Ponsford said the new sign was “adequate” and satisfied safety guidelines. He pointed out that the beach had a hazard rating of two on a 10-point scale, with one at the lowest end of risk. “Two is a very low number com-

pared with the patrolled Surf Beach at Point Lonsdale, which is an eight.” Mr Ponsford said Point Lonsdale Surf Club discussed residents’ concerns with Borough of Queenscliffe last week. “We’ve discussed the issue with council and its up to them to refer it back to Surf Life Saving Victoria,” he said. Mayor Bob Merriman said he was unaware of any concerns about the signage. “Works on the beach are almost complete and we’ve implemented all the recommendations made by Surf Life Saving Victoria and State Government,” he said.

Homes wait pain for more families BY KIM WATERS AN “ASTOUNDING” jump in public housing waiting lists shows the Brumby Government is failing disadvantaged families in the Geelong region, according to the state opposition. Shadow minister for housing Wendy Lovell slammed the Government after new figures revealed another 82 families had joined Geelong’s public housing waiting list. The number of low-income families waiting for housing in the region rose from 2285 in December to 2367 in March, she said. “That’s an astounding

increase in a single quarter and highlights the Brumby Government’s failure to deliver effective affordable housing policies over the past 11 years, leading to a crisis across all levels of housing in Victoria.” Ms Lovel said an “early housing” list of residents at risk of recurring homelessness, with a disability or with special housing needs surged to 579, an increase of 21 since December. “These are the most vulnerable Victorians who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, disabled or have special medical needs,” she said. “The 2010/2011 state budget revealed that waiting times for

urgent early housing have blown out under Labor, with vulnerable families expected to wait an average of eight months for a home in 2009/2010, up from 2.8 months in 1999.” Housing Minister Richard Wynne defended the figures. “The Brumby Labor Government is committed to putting a roof over the heads of our most vulnerable Victorians and we are making a record investment to deliver this,” Mr Wynne said. “In 1999 the state-wide public housing waiting list stood at more than 41,000 applicants but that number has fallen to 39,794.”

Mr Wynne said the Office of Housing had recently written to people on the waiting list offering referrals for registered housing associations in their areas. “The Brumby Labor Government works in partnership with housing associations across Victoria to provide housing to vulnerable Victorians. “We’re working shoulder to shoulder with the Rudd Labor Government to build 4500 social housing dwellings...as well as implementing the National Rental Affordability Scheme, with an initial commitment for more than 3000 units in the private rental market.”

Jobs expo to match employers with jobless 6.5 per cent unemployment rate while providing a timely a boost for local industries. “Incentives like these will go a long way toward improving this situation,” Cr Macdonald said. Federal parliamentary secretary for employment Jason Clare visited Geelong this week to announce the expo. Mr Clare encouraged residents to attend. “Geelong has been hit hard by the global recession – the unemployment rate here is 6.5

per cent, which is above the national average,” he said. “That’s why on July 8 we’ll be at the Geelong Arena with jobs to fill and people to fill them. “We’ve held 15 around the country so far and filled around 5900 jobs.” Member for Corangamite Darren Cheesman said local training providers would also have a role at the event. “The Jobs Expo will also give locals a chance to find new skills or update existing

skills to help them find the right job,” he said. Mr Cheeseman used the expo launch to welcome the extension of the Government’s Apprentice Kickstart Program. The program will now run until November with a tripled first-year apprentice bonus of almost $5000. Mr Cheeseman said the program almost doubled the number of young, traditional trade apprentices recruited between December and February.

BUDGET 2010-2011 CITY OF GREATER GEELONG

COUNCIL HAS ADOPTED THE CITY OF GREATER GEELONG’S DRAFT 2010-2011 BUDGET The aim of the 2010-2011 Budget is to maintain or improve service levels to the community without a major cost increase to ratepayers. The average residential rate increase of 4.9 per cent places the City of Greater Geelong amongst the lowest rate increases of Victorian Councils. The Budget provides funding for a wide range of community facilities and includes a $64.1 million capital works program.

WHY HAVE TIP FEES GONE UP? The State Government, through the Environment Protection Authority has increased its landfill levy from $9 per tonne to $33 per tonne as part of its ongoing campaign to reduce waste going to landfill. This significant increase has meant the City has had to put up fees for boot and trailer loads of rubbish taken to our landfill sites. Boot load $12.50, trailer load $32.50. For this year at least we have managed to absorb much of the impact of this increase on our 3-bin recycling and waste collection service.

MORE FUNDING FOR INFRASTRUCTURE The Budget provides $11.9 million for road maintenance and upgrades which includes the resurfacing of 67.75 kilometres of roads. There is also funds to upgrade of 8.14 kilometres of footpaths.

BUDGET HIGHLIGHTS AT A GLANCE • Rate increase of 4.9 per cent equates to approximately $1 week for the average household • Funding to the Geelong Regional Library Corporation increased to $5.5 million • $64.1 million capital works program • Funding to plant and maintain 2,000 new street and park trees • $6.7 million for recreation reserves and facilities upgrades • $13.7 million for family services including day care • $4.1 million for stage one of the Geelong Ring Road Employment Precinct • $17.1 million for aged services • $11.9 million for road maintenance and upgrades • $12.5 million for community buildings MAJOR EVENTS SUPPORT Major events are a proven contributor to our regional economy and this year Geelong is hosting the largest event ever to be staged in our region - the 2010 UCI Road World Championships. Major events are a proven driver for economic activity and the Geelong region has earned a reputation as a major event capital. The UCI Road World Championships will deliver an estimated economic benefit of $80 million to Victoria. The 2011 Australian International Airshow, Audi Victoria Week, Pako Festa and other major events all receive continued financial support. In total the Budget provides more than $2.5 million funding for major and community events.

Drainage design and construction receives $3.5 million. Public buildings receive a total of $12.57 million. Significant projects include the Waurn Ponds Library, the Vines Road Community Centre redevelopment and the Norlane North Shore Family Hub.

LOCAL LIBRARIES RECEIVE BOOST

ENVIRONMENT AND SUSTAINABILITY

In addition to the annual contribution to the library corporation the Budget provides $3.8 million for upgrades or new libraries at Vines Road, Waurn Ponds and Drysdale.

Sustainability and climate change are key themes of this year’s budget. The Budget provides $700,000 for drought recovery initiatives including significant tree watering and ground renovation programs. There’s $600,000 for the enhancement and protection of coastal, conservation and environmental reserves and another $600,000 for water quality and reuse programs.

The budget provides a $5.53 million to the Geelong Regional Library Corporation which is an increase of more than $500,000.

Rates assistance is available for pensioners and other ratepayers who may experience difficulties in paying their rates. The City will contact ratepayers who are likely to be eligible and invite them to apply for assistance.

COMMUNITY WELL BEING

RATES ASSISTANCE

The Budget provides significant funding for community based projects aimed at improving the health and quality of life of residents.

Rates assistance is available for pensioners and other ratepayers who have a household income below $44,165 and whose properties have had a 50 per cent or more increase in their valuation. Eligibility is also subject to a principle place of residence with no improvements test.

Aged services receive a total of $17.1 million and there’s $13.7 million for family services - which includes family and long day care, community child health, children’s services and parenting education. Community hub projects receive $2.4 million.

WHAT IS REVALUATION? Councils are required by State legislation to undertake a revaluation every two years. The 2010 revaluation shows that residential property values in the municipality went up by an average of 11 per cent. The average residential property value for the City of Greater Geelong is $326,661. This shows our housing market remains quite healthy. Some people assume that if their property value has increased substantially the City will collect more money in rates. This is not the case - we actually adjust the amount we levy on each property to achieve the average rate increase we determine through the Budget. Owners whose property has increased noticeably less than the average of 11 per cent are likely to receive a reduction in their rates notice compared to the previous year.

The City will contact ratepayers who are likely to be eligible and invite them to apply for assistance. Pensioners are also eligible for the State Government Municipal Concession rebate of $187.60.

CARE TO COMMENT ON THE DRAFT BUDGET AND CITY PLAN? The 2010-2011 Budget has been guided by Council’s strategic plan for the municipality, which is called City Plan. This plans sets out Council’s objectives for the next four years. By planning in advance we can ensure that the projects and programs we put in place in the current year will fit with the needs of the community in years to come. Written submissions on the draft Budget and City Plan are invited and must be received by Wednesday 9 June. Copies of the draft Budget are available at City’s Customer Service Centres and at www.geelongaustralia.com.au

Just as Federal and State Governments collect taxes to fund their programs, local governments must also generate funds to pay for the services they provide to the community.

The City decides how much revenue it needs by preparing an annual budget. It is the budget that determines how much the City collects in rates.

The budget also provides funds for the City’s Greenhouse Reduction Local Action Plan.

NEW CAPITAL PROJECT EXPENDITURE

The residential rate has increased by 4.9 per cent as the result of the 2010-2011 Budget. The increase to the average residential rate notice equates to approximately $1 per week.

Our rates are a general purpose levy which contributes to more than 120 services plus essential infrastructure such as roads, footpaths, parks, gardens, libraries and sports facilities. The City determines its funding priorities following extensive consultation with the community.

A highlight is $500,000 for a major tree planting program. 2,000 new street and park trees will be planted and maintained across the municipality.

The City’s $64.1 million capital works program concentrates on renewal of public infrastructure including roads, footpaths and key community facilities.

For the people: Minister Brett Lyons outside the cafe and recycled clothing businesses he hopes can breathe new life into Norlane’s Labuan Square. Picture: Tommy Ritchie

BY ANDREW MATHIESON A BAPTIST minister is behind a push to revitalise a rundown Norlane shopping strip. Labuan Square’s grubby facade had for years attracted regular break-ins, holds-ups and drug deals, forcing shop owners to protect property with roller doors that became magnets for graffiti vandals. But an organisation running a fresh alfresco cafe and a new retailer of recycled clothing for children has a greater purpose beyond just making dollars and cents in Labuan Square. Minister Brent Lyons said

charity provider cafe Urban Seed was developing a “social enterprise” to ultimately use any profits to fund free meals for struggling nearby families. “We realise our organisation could take on a risk by opening the shop like this in the square,” he said. “If anyone purely did this for profit, it just wouldn’t work at this stage but we’re looking at the bigger picture; to increase business in the area and to get people out of that generational poverty cycle.” Mr Lyons said his Norlane Baptist Church was already forced to run four free break-

fasts and a Monday community evening meal each week to meet demand among disadvantaged residents. Urban Seed would also become a training base for unemployed and “disenfranchised” residents in the area, he said. The cafe opened in December, with a Zero 2 Four recycled clothing shop beginning business at the rear of the premises earlier this month. Mr Lyons hoped the facelift would breathe new life into Labuan Square. “When I came here a lot of the old ladies were saying that

Labuan Square was the place to be and it was really good but when I got here it was just all full of roller doors.” Mr Lyons said rates of violent incidents had slowly dropped since the shopfront was opened. “I have heard stories in the past of what goes on with break-ins, so there was a risk doing it but we’ve kept it pretty low key,” he said. “We did get held up in the first few weeks and we were expecting that sort of stuff but we certainly wouldn’t let that defeat us at this stage.” 426803-KC18-10

BY ANDREW MATHIESON RESIDENTS and councillors invited to join State Government public consultation on a controversial Moorabool Street residential development have slammed a lack of transparency over the project. Government developer VicUrban wants to hand-pick 10 “community representatives” including residents living around the site, a member of Action on Moorabool community group and two Geelong councillors. VicUrban plans a series of workshops to discuss the final mix of housing options for stage two private residences, including design character, height options, reuse of heritage buildings, open space, traffic management and retail opportunities. The discussions will not include a “social housing” component of the project. But Action on Moorabool spokesperson Peter Dowling said the Government’s removal of

appeal rights against the project 12 months ago had already fired up residents. “We were told the reason we weren’t consulted was because they (VicUrban) were exempted because it was social housing,” he said. Residents had since discovered that the development would also include at least 45 private townhouses. Works have begun on the first stage of 30 “affordable” housing units for the elderly. Mr Dowling said VicUrban had insisted that stages one and two were commercially “linked” despite federal funding driving the social housing component. Action on Moorabool believed the Government agency was using commercial confidentiality as an excuse to withhold information from the community. Council planning portfolioholder Andrew Katos predicted a “sham” public consultation. The Government had already locked out Geelong councillors

from plans for the $50 million development when residents awoke to find construction fences around the former Gordon Institute of TAFE site. Cr Katos said VicUrban instead only briefed the City Hall planning officers about the project. “You couldn’t have a great conflict of interest here: the owner of the land, the developer of the land and the planning authority of the land are the same entity, the Victorian Government,” he said. “If this was a private developer, there is no way they would be able to do this.” Mr Madden said the Government was committed to delivering a “good design solution” for the Moorabool Street project. He believed the redevelopment would complement the character of the existing area. “The community should have confidence in the rigour of the planning and consultation process and I encourage all interested parties to take part in the discussion,” he said.

First prize in each category is $1000, while second and third

place-getters receive $500 and $300 respectively. Prizes are also included for reaching the grand final, for promising performers and for overall winners in each category.

JAN WATSON’S not your ordinary Clifton Springs’ 82-year-old. Not content to ease into retirement with the sleepy seaside town’s pleasures of a spot of bowls or hit of golf, she’s happier slapping on the leathers and making a bit of noise down the highway on her motorbike. “When I park and I take my helmet off, I get weird looks sometimes,” Jan admits. “But usually it’s just the people who already know I have a bike who see me. They’re quite happy about me riding a bike at my age and I’ve a lot of good friends in the motorcycling world.” And rather than long walks along the Dell’s beach with dog in tow, Jan also likes to slip into a wetsuit and dip her toe in the water. The dip turns into a dive where, with goggles and snorkel, she swims, observes, takes snapshots and can name nearly 500 living sea creatures below the sea. “It’s still an addiction,” Jan confesses. Time spent scuba diving can be an excuse to get away from hours peering into a microscope to uncover the latest batch of new organisms. But the veteran marine biologist is certainly not slowing down after having a crude backyard laboratory purpose-built at home. The title marine biologist “didn’t actually exist” when Jan was a young girl, she chuckles. “I started off wanting to be geologist when I grew in Ballarat. “When I went to the school of mines, they laughed at me because women didn’t do geology.” Women and the sciences, for some, just didn’t mix back then. Jan knew women whose career paths stopped at either typists or nurses. “My first job in Ballarat was an applied chemist but when I got married I got the sack because that was

Local Legends ANDREW MATHIESON what happened in those days,” Jan recalls. “Things have changed a lot.” But some things have stayed the same for Jan for most of five decades. She has since discovered six new genera – huge leaps in biological breakthroughs – and hundreds of new marine species. More than 100 published papers on her research sit idle, piled on shelves in her home laboratory, like a testimony to her life’s work. For the past 37 years and counting, Jan has been conducting surveys and assessments into the health of bays. The latest is to monitor the effects of a steel works’ wastewater on seagrasses and the uptake of metals on mussels. Most are healthy to eat but Jan can’t get the taste out of her mouth, or stomach it. “Do you like mussels? Well, you can take most of these away,” she says, pointing to five ropes of sea clams in an Esky. A move to north-west Queensland sparked Jan’s interest in becoming a marine biologist. She remembers spotting a diver leaping into in a dam among the uranium mines. “When we came back to Melbourne to live I and a few friends decided to teach ourselves how to scuba dive at the old Ballieu pool at Melbourne University,” she says. “I realised after our first few dives that there was a whole world out there that no one knew anything about.”

letters CPSAS schooled

Mismanaged meeting

MY HEART sank when I read the Independent’s story last week on Concerned Parents About Surf Coast Schooling (CPASCS). I hope TSCS understands the distress it is causing families and particularly students who have chosen Torquay College for their secondary education. If a stand-alone high school is such a huge priority to CPASCS then there is one 13km down the road. Torquay offers a clear alternative to this. Torquay College’s secondary department offers passionate teachers and administrators, a caring and nurturing environment, facilities second to none and a unique culture that, until now, has been Torquay’s best-kept secret. It would be unjust to take this away from those who have committed to the school. Torquay College offers my child the best and most appropriate education. Following discussions with other parents and grandparents of children who have selected this school, I am yet to find anyone who is dissatisfied. As for the claim that the absence of a stand-alone high school reduces property prices in Torquay, is CPASCS serious? I don’t believe that property prices, which have escalated in Torquay over the past 18 months, have anything to do with the school. As for CPASCS’s argument about bullying, it is not an issue between the primary and secondary students at our school nor between the existing two schools at Torquay. State Government has announced that secondary facilities will extend to year 12. My family chose this school with the expectation this commitment will not change. CPASCS doesn’t know what it’s missing! Nicole Watson Torquay

THE MAYOR had just officially closed arecent council meeting at City Hall and people were leaving in their own good time or sticking around to chat, as they pleased. One of the City of Greater Geelong general managers came over to where my wife and I were seated in the gallery. He told us “The meeting’s over, you can go now”. He did not make the same announcement to all those still present, so his action toward us was discriminatory. As he walked off he told me “You don’t need to be here, Colin”. Such astonishing ignorance in a public official of the rights and responsibilities of citizens in a democracy! I would ask my ward councillor or the chief executive officer to ensure the general manager never approached us in a similar way in future but, from my experience of how both of them respond when improper conduct by council officers is brought to their notice, I know it would be futile.

Sweet tax of mine AN AGEING and increasingly out-of-pocket population whose members are non-beneficiaries of superannuation, irrespective of how its reconfigured alongside infrastructure, health, education, defence, water and other governance housekeeping expenses, supports the need for a resources super profits tax (RSPT) with long-term clout. To his credit, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd is in part correct in emphasising that an RSPT is a national interest entitlement. Hopefully it won’t be reneged upon or botched because it is a serious positive. As it stands, federal Treasury’s annual $9 billion to $14 billion gain would remain small-beer if

onshore value-adding to resources were put in place. Agreed, uranium’s an issue, given Olympic Dam’s massive uranium resources, yet decisions ultimately have to be cashed in on – either we use it or somebody else will. Given finite resources, mining companies with share-holder expectations, wider employment opportunities from value-adding and government’s need to obtain an equitable share of the national quarry, an all-round win scenario beckons. Why aren’t mining companies and the Rudd Government using the opportunities of an RSPT to bring to the table a public-private crossover to share a bigger cake? There won’t be another any time soon. Richard Worland Manifold Heights

Creek Shanghaied THE BRUMBY Government’s pre-election state budget was in fact another smoke and mirrors show. Despite opportunistic spruiking for Armstrong Creek, Michael Crutchfield, the parliamentary secretary for environment, water and climate change, was exposed for displaying fake environmental credentials. Labor will spend $6 million at Shanghai World Expo where 70 million people from nearly 200 countries will be able to learn about Victoria’s environment and urban development credentials but Geelong’s so-called green Armstrong Creek has been snubbed. Mr Crutchfield’s glut of arrogance simply demonstrates he doesn’t understand or value sustainable living for South Barwon. Angelo Kakouros Grovedale

Paddock of spin A NEW hospital for Geelong. How exciting! Well, that’s what the headline seemed to say. A closer read revealed we are to get $33 million to plan and to purchase land but not a word as to when we will get this wonderful, much-needed, facility. All we’ll end up with is a large paddock with an large sign announcing the new hospital is coming. If things go as they have been for the last 10 years, the sign will become a faded monument to the spin doctors for another 10. No doubt Michael Crutchfield will evade the hard question, spin some more and take credit to get him over the line at this year’s state election. What’s the bet Darren Cheeseman will convince Kevin Rudd to pay for some of the project so that

he, too, can take the kudos? Elizabeth Cross Wandana Heights

Mocked on Moorabool STATE Government’s plans to rubber-stamp a development of more than 90 homes, three shops and an estimated 200-plus residents on a former Gordon Institute of TAFE site in Moorabool Street is an overuse of land that would be unallowed to a private developer. In February during a mock community consultation session South Geelong residents made it clear they were opposed to the redevelopment. Three months later there has been no change to the plan. I call on Member for Geelong Ian Trezise to stand up for residents and reinforce these concerns to Planning Minister Justin Madden. The community was also initially told that the stage one, the social housing component, would cater solely for the elderly but has since found out this is not necessarily the case. Since stage two does not include a social housing component it should not come under Mr Madden’s special planning approval powers. The responsibility for approving stage two should reside with Geelong’s council, which would no doubt follow stringent planning procedures to ensure the right mix of housing, car parking and open space. Alastair Thomson Liberal candidate for Geelong

A Batty claim IN THE May 7 Independent Clyde Batty repeated the claim that 20000 boats launched at Torquay each year. This means that on average 54 boats are launched each day, 365 days each year. From my observation, based on almost daily walks along Fisherman’s Beach, this number is greatly exaggerated. If we are to have an informed debate about development and the angling club’s next funding request then we need to have reliable information, not exaggerated ambit claims. If there are so many launches and the club collects fees for launches from non-members then why doe it need extra money? The community should be wary of a persistent lobbying campaign for further changes aided by non-residents like Mr Batty. Such changes would be detrimental to the amenity of this beach for users other than those launching boats. Irwin Faris Torquay

Marks story I came from a broken home...my father left when I was only 14 years old.

My mother married another man about 2 years later which I had trouble relating to. Full of rebellion I left home and joined the Australian Army when I turned 16. I developed a lot of issues with rage because of the anger and hate I felt with my parents splitting up and joining the army only fueled this more and gave me the skills to go with the anger.

I became so violent to the point of coming close, in one case, to nearly killing a person.

INDUSTRIAL unions of various descriptions are responsible for contributing millions of dollars in funding to the electoral efforts of the Victorian Labor Government. Given that it can be assumed the public is quite concerned about the infrastructure that affects most, such as schools, hospitals, transport, etcetera, it is not outside the bounds of reason to expect more criticism from union leaders of the Brumby Government’s activities. The Spencer Street station refurbishment, plagued by delays, was dubbed Treasure Island by building workers. It is all well and good that government projects create work for builders but if the construction unions actively pursue the re-election of a Labor Government then they should be obliged to criticise unacceptable government practices. Planning Minister Justin Madden’s overriding of local processes and approving unsuitable developments, which we are all aware of, are other practices that deserve criticism. Unionists may well remember the green ban period of many years back and the social conscience unions once had in monitoring their satisfaction with their union hierarchy’s direction. Unions are a great source of power for workers and a potential agent for a better society in an era when electors’ rights seem to be non-existent. Gary Oraniuk Geelong

Coal versus caves STUART McCallum (Letters, May 7) stated that I considered my letters sufficient to win the debate on climate change. My singular letter was in response to a letter by David Campbell and the issue was not climate change, it was anthropogenic, or man-made, global warming. Climate change is annual and has been since records have been kept. Mr McCallum said the consensus of world scientists was that humans had destabilised our climatic system and needed to reverse the trends. In fact, the majority of world scientists do not subscribe to manmade global warming. One of the great things to have come out of Copenhagen is the uncertainty with which the scientific world holds the issue of global warming destroying our existence and the fact that no country is prepared to risk it’s existence on a science proven

dodgy at best. I commend them for their sanity. Governments have poured gazillions of dollars into this issue, far beyond the capacity of any public company, but are still uncertain of the science. Mr McCallum’s letter quoted not one shred of science, only emotional garbage to strengthen a point. What has oil got to do with this argument? Let’s face it, without oil our world would not move and the computers we use to write letters to the editor would not exist. We need oil, we need coal. We do not need to go back to the past and live as cave dwellers in hair shirts. Russell Williams Newtown

Love it or leave it A FEW months ago the Independent’s republican correspondent stated that republicans were not pommie bashers but in the Independent a few weeks later (Letters, April 16) he was at it again, blaming the Brits for everything from the growth of Nazism to boat people. The Australian people are more concerned about the advantages of a republic for Australia, if any, than the inaccuracies of one man’s allegedly racist opinion. The writer had a ridiculous view of the Gough Whitlam dismissal, given that in the subsequent general election his government was decisively dismissed, proving the dismissal was the wish of the Australian people. However, the writer’s statements on great republics require comment. The USA is a great country but, owing to its capitalistic banking system, is responsible for the current world financial crisis. The writer listed communist China as a great republic but I am certain few Australians would care to live in a People’s Republic of Australia. Finally of all the republics in the world, the writer selected Germany as in the top three. I remind him that thousands of people in our country have bitter memories of a previous German republic, that cost millions of lives worldwide to overthrow. However, if the correspondent thinks so highly of a German republic then I would like to advise him there is a good service from Sydney to Frankfurt. James Hancock Newcomb

Hutton faces up to festival of an annual honorary title. “I think it’s a great idea picking someone (who will be the ambassador of the festival),” he confessed. “It makes it more personal.” After an impressive performance at last year’s festival, Hutton told the Independent he couldn’t wait to bring his infectious Celtic rock back to the Bellarine Peninsula. “It’s really one of my favourite festivals,” he said. “We’ve made a lot of great friends down there and the whole idea and philosophy just appeals to me. “We play a lot of folk festivals which have music from around the world but this one is purely Celtic.” The Melbourne-based band, which formed in Scotland nearly 28 years ago, has built a strong following of fans searching for something more appealing than, as Hutton described it, “the usual twiddle-dee-dee” associated with traditional Celtic music.

’S T A Book H W ON

“We’ve got quite a big following around Australia and I think it’s because we rock it up a bit,” he said. Hutton pointed the finger at the popular theatrical Irish show Riverdance for pushing Celtic music onto the nation’s mainstream airways. “There’s a huge Celtic culture, especially since Riverdance,” he said. “Everybody thought it was just a few Irish guys banging away in their bedrooms.” But for Hutton, the love of Celtic music runs much deeper through his veins. “To me it’s about friendship and the way it makes people come together,” he said. “It’s not aggressive and not too political – and it makes you move your feet.” Claymore will perform alongside a variety of international acts including Beoga and The Craic Hooers at this year’s National Celtic Festival. The four-day event starts on June 11.

BY ALEX DE VOS EVERY time Claymore frontman William Hutton looks at the trophy on his desk he sees his face staring back at him in the reflection. It’s a gentle reminder of a prize he can’t seem to shake off. In 2007 the talented performer was named the Face of the Festival at Portarlington’s annual Celtic music celebration. For his efforts he was awarded a mirrored trophy from festival organisers. “When I’m down there I still get called the Face of the Festival – I can’t seem to shake it,” the charismatic Scotsman laughs. “They gave me a trophy with a mirror on it, which sits on my desk and every time I look at it I see myself – they’re never going to let me forget it.” Despite his mates ribbing him about the hackneyed tag, Hutton praised the nomination

The cafe group management is concentrating on the function market with several locations available even at short notice. Soft’s food is affordable but still fresh and creative.

fter the successful debut of the Gateway Hotel’s first show, the popular Corio venue is getting ready to do it all again. With some big-name artists such as Adam Brand, Daryl Braithwaite, Jon Stevens and Mental as Anything due to perform in the coming months, the entertainment line-up is sure to impress. The Local Jester Comedy nights are up and running in the function room with an impressive line-up. Morning Melodies on the last Thursday of every month are proving to be a favourite. Fans will not be disappointed with Ron Sudden and Kingsley Koonwhye booked to perform in the next two months. The Gateway hasn’t forgotten all the little dancing queens, so the venue will host a BABBA kids’ show on June 30 during the next school holidays. With tickets selling for only $17, it’s a great treat for the kids. With winter fast approaching, The Gateway Hotel is changing its bistro hours to suit. The bistro will now be open from 5pm in the evening until 8:30pm. The longer hours also mean the bistro can still accommodate regular customers on the nights when the hotel is hosting one of its shows. Patrons will have the option of coming in a little earlier so they can still enjoy a night at The Gateway rather than miss out all together. Patrons are advised to keep an eye out for what’s coming up at The Gateway Hotel because there will be something to suit everyone.

Rylock saving homes on heat The team at Classic Fireplaces and Barbecues.

Classic, efficient warmth in winter lassic Fireplaces and Barbecues has Geelong covered all year round. Despite the mercury still reaching lofty heights and the need for an open fire still months away, the business doubles as a Weber barbecue specialist dealer and is inundated over the summer period. With 20 years running the family business, owners John and Jeanette Greene are constantly expanding the range with the latest in wood and energy-efficient gas log fires. Store manager Damon Kennedy says Classic Fireplaces and Barbeques is well-prepared for another cold winter ahead. “Heating wise, we‘ve got everything from high-efficient gas log fires through to decorative gas fires, Australian-made combustion wood heaters and open convection wood fireplaces.” The West Fyans Street store stocks recognised brands such as Coonara, Jetmaster Heat & Glo, Jindara, HeatCharm and Clean Air to name a few. Damon says a shift to gas log fires in recent years now accounts for a large percentage of the stores sales. Classic Fireplaces and Barbeques is an agent for EcoSmart ethanol fireplaces. New for 2010 are the Cannon Fitzroy gas log fires and Jindara Barwon wood heater. Classic Fireplaces and Barbeques is open 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 1pm Saturdays down the river end of Pakington Street at 99 West Fyans Street, Newtown. For more information phone 5222 1688.

lthough the region has enjoyed mild weather recently, the cold and wet of winter is literally just around the corner. Murray Riccardi, of Rylock Windows, knows that his customers will be warm and cosy in their homes without facing excessive heating bills. Murray says Rylock’s affordable double-glazed windows and doors are like winter woollies for windows, providing insulation against the outside cold just like a warm jumper or coat. Insulation works by simply trapping air particles, which double-glazed windows achieve with the air contained in a sealed space between the panes. “There is no magic involved in why they perform but customers tell us the benefits are magical,” Murray says. “Over the years we have had literally dozens of reports from clients of the outstanding benefits, with repeated claims of energy bills halved after the installation of our windows in existing homes. “Today it is even more important because of dwindling resources and the cost of energy going up and up. The benefits will go on year after year, just as surely as energy prices will go up year after year.” Murray says double-glazing will probably add less than 20 percent to window and door costs for building a new home.

Lyn Lewis and Chris Poulter with quality heating products at Elsworthy’s Retravision.

A

City’s one-stop shop for heating lsworthy’s Retravision Geelong is a onestop stop for heating that won’t be beaten on quality or prices. The store, in the heart of Geelong opposite Skilled Stadium, has been serving customers for more than 75 years. The Geelong Elsworthy family has been supplying generations of customers with the best in products, service and advice. This winter Elsworthy’s only supplies qualityheating appliances ranging from small, portable heaters through to luxury models from Rinnai, Delonghi, Dimplex, IXL, Kambrook, Sunbeam and Goldair. The electrical store also has a wide range of single, double, queen and king-size electric blankets. Sales manager Chris Poulter and the rest of the Elsworthy’s team are always happy to keep the tradition alive to advise customers on the right products for their needs. “We have a very good range of quality heaters, reverse-cycle air-conditioners and ducted systems,” Chris says. “We have a large range of Rinnai products and other leading brands available and some cash-backs apply to certain models, so come in and speak to a staff member about our best buys.” Elsworthy’s Retravision can order products not in stock to suit individual requirements. Phone Elsworthy’s Retravision Geelong on 5222 1533 or visit 395 Moorabool Street. The store where the top brands cost less is open seven days a week. Like the song, just ask Trev.

Rylock’s products offer energy efficiency and warm interiors throughout cold Geelong winters. “This small outlay is probably the only money you will spend on the home that will come back to you over and over again in energy cost savings as long as you live there.” Contemporary home designs, featuring expansive areas of glass that would have been solid walls a generation ago, also increase the need for double-glazing. Rylock’s clients are often surprised how large the company can

make spans of double-glazed windows. “Before you sign off with the builder on your new home, get him to find out how little extra Rylock double-glazed windows and doors will add to the cost of the building,” Murray advises. “We are sure you will say ‘Is that all’. And remember the small outlay every time you come inside on a chilly winter day.”

The proprietors beg to inform the Gentry, Settlers and General Public of Western Victoria that they seek their interest in using Double Glazed Rylock Windows and Doors for their new Homestead, Mansion or Beach house. The quality is of the highest standard and the service is superior to that offered by any competitor in the colony. The produce is made from new fangled aluminium and assembled using stainless steel fixings and fittings. Reveal timber is from Van Diemens Land and of the best available quality. No slave labour is used, and the produce is assembled entirely by skilled local craftsmen from the Motherland and good European stock. Double Glazing ensures the noisiest Wagons and Ruffians will not be heard within the confines of the property. It will also keep out the severe summer heat experienced in the Colony, and will keep out the chills of winter even in the Ballarat Goldfields and surrounds.

Supporting our volunteers V olunteering Geelong has developed an exciting program to assist community organisations to effectively support and manage their volunteers. The Leading with Standards Program is conducted over six months to assist organisations to implement the National Standards for Involving Volunteers within their organisation. The program includes an introductory two-day training program, three half-day workshops, site visits to organisations, ongoing support from the Volunteering Geelong Project Manager and access to resources to support the individual needs of organisations to implement the Standards. Eleven organisations have participated in the pilot initiative, which was funded by United Way and DoCare Geelong. The success of the program has led to its incorporation as part of core business at Volunteering Geelong. Wendy Gibson, from Foundation 61, commented: “I have learnt a lot from being involved in this program and plan to use the information as the basis of ongoing practice. We now have a greater focus and commitment to provide the necessary safe, relevant, positive and healthy environments for our volunteers where they participate”. Other benefits for organisations include Raising the profile of the organisation’s volunteer program both internally and externally Creating a strong framework for the management of volunteers based on the National Standards Empowering and building confidence of volunteer managers Minimising exposure to risk within community organisations

Pain in the neck could get worse ecent research shows that a 10-degree loss of neck curve doubles the chance of neck pain.

People who have neck pain are 18 times more likely, compared to someone without neck pain, to have lost their neck curve completely. This actually chronically stretches your spinal cord, says the Back Bloke, Dr Colin Brice. “If you have forward head posture then studies have shown that this will get worse unless treated,” Dr Brice says. “The longer you have forward head posture the harder it is to fix.” If it gets so bad that people end up with a “hump back” they are more likely to die earlier than an upright friend. “Make sure both of you have upright posture.” “Poor posture is also linked to a lower quality of life. Look at the chiropractors advertising on this

Doctor in the house with posture tips ellarine Peninsula residents are being encouraged to take a good long look at themselves during National Chiropractic Care Week from May 24 to 30. “There’s no better time to ponder your posture and identify bad habits that could be taking their toll on your spine,” local chiropractor Dr Russell Mottram advises. With this year’s National Chiropractic Care Week running under the theme ‘Which posture are you?’, Dr Mottram will be helping highlight common problems to show residents how they can re-train their postures to reduce loads on the spines. “Up to 90 per cent of people have poor posture, which puts extra pressure on the spine and can lead to tension, soreness, headaches, back pain, fatigue and a range of other health issues,” he says. Dr Mottram points the finger at everyday activities as the catalyst for the region’s high prevalence of poor posture. “The way both adults and children sit, sleep, stand, walk, work and play can all have a big impact on our posture, with different lifestyle types being more prone to certain problems.” The good news is postural issues can be corrected and even reversed in some cases. “You can make an appointment with an accredited Chiropractors’ Association of Australia chiropractor for a posture assessment, advice and exer-

ound three of the Autocross series was run last Sunday at Avalon’s Motor Sport Complex. Geelong Motor Sport Club’s Jim Szabo, driving a Subaru Vortex, said the track started out very dusty and slippery, but after a few runs the top surface of dust gave way to a harder and “grippier” track underneath. The event attracted 34 competitors who tested their driving skills during a 6-lap run around the course. Barry Nowell’s Ford Laser proved to be the car to beat with its light weight and V6 engine crammed under the bonnet. He eventually took out the outright win of the day. Jim Szabo was just two seconds behind winning second place outright and Jason Bellamy, who shared the driving with his son Kurt, in a Nissan Pulsar, were placed third outright and first in their class.

Brian revealed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been a Valiant man since I was about 19,â&#x20AC;? admitted the 60-something car fanatic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have always owned a Valiant or a Chrysler. But his latest favourite is the 1977 CL Regal SE Valiant, the car he likes to drive regularly. Chrysler Australia introduced the Regal in 1976 as the flagship for the Chrysler range. It sold for $11,401, well above the $6948 for a Valiant Charger, but it still proved popular with Australian motorists, resulting in more than 32,000 CL Valiants coming off the Chrysler Australia assembly lines in South Australia. Since the last CL Valiant was built in 1978, CLs in original condition have become rare, but a few have been looked after by original owners and kept within families. Brian said when he first saw the 1977 CL advertised for sale three years ago he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it was in such good condition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was the top of the range model, the SE, Special Edition, and was in very good nick,â&#x20AC;? Brian remembered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It had done a lot of miles but it was still a lovely, original car.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I bought it from a bloke up Herne Hill way, Robert Baird. He was using it as an everyday car and was driving to work in Melbourne each day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was only the second owner and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had the car for a long time. During his ownership he had driven it around Australia twice towing a caravan.â&#x20AC;? The Valiant needed very little work to keep it in original condition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the previous owner had spent a bit of money on the motor so all I had to do was give it a good polish and it came up looking like it had just rolled out of the showroom.â&#x20AC;? Brian also gave the cream-coloured vinyl roof a good clean. One minor restoration needed to be done was the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I found another old seat and between the two I have been able to restore the CLs using the two seats. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve put on a set of mag wheels just to make it look a bit special and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve tinted the windows mainly to protect the interior against sun damage, but other than that, the car is factory original. Brian said he hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put a spanner to te cars 318 V8 engine since he bought it three years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lovely car to drive with its T-bar automatic with power steering and air-conditioning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe in putting these old cars into â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;moth ballsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. I like to keep it going and use it regularly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken the car up to the Murray and I often go for a run down to my parents place at Portland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The regular driving does a car the world of good. It gets the oil flowing and the brakes working.â&#x20AC;? A regular drive does come with a risk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I did have a prang in it a couple of years ago when a bloke ran into the back of me. He bent the rear guard, but the panel beater did a marvellous job repairing it and you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know it had been damaged,â&#x20AC;? Brian said. Brian is the secretary of Bay City Chrysler Club. Each year the club hosts a show-and-shine in Geelong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The old Valiants are getting more and more popular now as a classic car. When we have our showand-shine event we get Valiants from all around Victoria and Tasmanian coming to Geelong. There are a lot of them being restored and modified,â&#x20AC;? Brian said. To add to the appeal of Brianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s CL, he has just got a 1960s silver aluminium caravan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do some restoration work on the van before hooking it up to the Valiant when we go on holidays.â&#x20AC;?

unter Cuthill has unveiled its new-look store which features a renovated reception room and office space, expansive parts storage area and convenient off-street parking. Hunter Cuthill’s Adam Hunter says the store, which specialises in Land Rover and BMWs still offers customers a variety of mechanical services at affordable prices. Hunter Cuthill also offers breakdown services and is fully equipped to service the latest models of BMW and Land Rover for 30 per cent less than what a dealership would charge. Adam says the store uses a computer diagnostic tool called Autologic, which is capable of doing everything on the computers of Land Rover models including the latest Discovery 3, Freelander 2 and Range Rover Sport. Autologic can also be used for servicing the latest BMW 3, 5 and 7 Series to the latest standards. “It’s the absolute best software at dealer standards,” Adam says. “It’s an outstanding piece of machinery.” Adam says the tool can also be used to complete a power upgrade on diesel Land Rovers. “It plugs into the car and downloads a new fuel map, giving 30 per cent more power and better fuel economy,” he says. Hunter Cuthill uses Castrol Oils, as recommended by Land Rover and BMW. Technicians Gordon Cuthill and Adam opened the workshop in 2005 as an independent specialist in Land Rover and BMW. Hunter Cuthill combines Gordon’s 25 years working on Land Rover vehicles with Adam’s more than a decade of experience with BMWs. For more information visit Hunter Cuthill at 9 Autumn Street, Geelong West or phone 5229 4299.

PUBLIC NOTICES PUBLIC NOTICE - CORANGAMITE CMA

FUNDING OPPORTUNITY CoastalTender - Call for Expressions of Interest open

First Call Health....

A new coastal incentive program known as CoastalTender has been funded by the Australian Government to implement long term protection and enhancement of the coastline within the Corangamite region. This new funding will support land managers in the management and conservation of native vegetation and habitat on properties (>1ha) along the Corangamite coastline, including revegetation with indigenous species. The project will cover the entire coastline for the Corangamite region, as well as areas surrounding the Port Phillip Bay and Bellarine Peninsula Ramsar sites which fall within the Corangamite region. The current budget for the first round of CoastalTender is approximately $500,000. It is open to private land owners, local government shire councils and foreshore committees of management to undertake works on land that they directly manage. Land managers who formally express interest in the scheme will receive an obligation-free site assessment, and a draft management plan. The plan will contain a vegetation assessment and provide advice on management options. Following this, the land manager will be invited to submit a tender nominating the bid price they are seeking in order to undertake the management actions as outlined in the management plan. Tenders will then enter a competitive tender evaluation process. Once successful tenders have been determined, a five year agreement based on the agreed actions included in the bid will be signed. Land managers can also opt to include long-term protection commitments in their agreement, which will improve their competitiveness. Under these agreements, the land manager will receive financial incentive payments. Only actions that are over and above those required by current responsibilities under existing arrangements and legislation will be eligible for support. For further information, and to register an Expression of Interest, please telephone Polly Matthews on 0417 511 999 (Monday to Wednesday) or visit the website at www.ccma.vic.gov.au – be quick because oversubscription in the scheme may result in later registrations missing out.

ranking for next year and the chance to then claim the title it has won many times before. Featuring in the squad are star players Cory Bauer, Clinton Wells, Nick Batchelor and David Clarke, who are sure to lead by example. In all honesty, Geelong is not ranked in the top two sides this year because it did not join in the VCFL’s Country Championship’s last year and, without altogether discounting Ballarat, should be far too strong. Bellarine Football League ventures to Bendigo to take on Murray Football League in a twilight game between the ninth and 10th ranked teams. Dave McNamara is the Sharks’ coach this year and hopes to turn around the run of losses the representative team has suffered. For some reason there has been a reluctance of players to commit to the interleague cause, which has led to Bellarine fielding a less-than-ideal reflection of the league’s standard. Maybe with a ranking system in place a bit of pride may bring the stars out to play. Murray league is loosely based around Echuca and includes clubs like Deniliquin, Nathalia and Mulwala.

However, Murray isn’t the strongest league around, so Bellarine should be in the race to take the points. Geelong and District Football League also gets in on the act with its game against Heathcote Football League at Myers Reserve the only game of footy in town this weekend. For many years the league has battled to join the VCFL championship program but was considered a minor league and not up to standard. Now Geelong and District gets the chance to prove itself. While not in the top-16 ranking this year, it has been placed at 17 and, with a promotion/relegation system in place, it will replace the loser of the 15v16 game next year if it wins this one. With it comes the title of major league, something desperately wanted because Geelong and District has always battled for recognition over Bellarine. Coaching the side is East Geelong’s Adam Skrobalak. Heathcote is based around sides to the north-east of Bendigo and, like the GDFL, is seen as a feeder league. This promises to be a good battle, with the local boys likely to just get over the line.

Rick’s trout a big deal for huge week On the bite BRIAN LONG I CAN’T recall another week when so many huge fish were landed. Yes, most in the past week were bluefin tuna from Portland and Port Fairy but the 5.8kg brown trout from Lake Purrumbete was certainly up there with the best. Portland and Port Fairy saw no end of action, with plenty of fish from just 50m of water up to best at the time of writing going just under 150kg. Predictably at this time of the year, the surf fishing has also warmed up, with many anglers catching salmon from our main beaches. Fairhaven and Eastern View produced good numbers of fish last weekend on both bait and lure. The best fish I saw landed was close to 2kg and taken on a Surf Snatcher. I used only lures, catching and releasing the best part of 30 fish. My wife and son also got in on the action, landing plenty of fish from 500g to 900g on lures. Cinema Point was also on fire when conditions allowed access, with lures working best. However, Andrew McLeod did well here using surf poppers and bluebait. Queenscliff cut produced silver trevally on soft plastics such as

Once in a lifetime: Rick Maes with his monster brown trout. Turtleback worms. Paul Tamis and Danny Clapinski had a great session fishing from a boat near the yacht club, while anglers on the pier landed fish with worm and grub-pattern lures. Gone Fishing Charters reported large numbers of school sharks biting off Barwon Heads. The numbers available have been exceptional, with double-figure quantities a common result per boat. Swan Bay offered some nice gummy sharks after dark. Most averaged 3kg but Des Farnsworth landed a beauty close to 9kg. Queenscliff to St Leonards still offered boat anglers a great opportunity of bringing home a nice feed. Whiting catches declined but fish were still available on fresh squid, which can be caught early morning or evening on any of the inshore grass beds with small, dark coloured jigs. Flathead captures remained good, with anglers drifting and casting soft plastics such as Gulp minnows in the four-inch size returning with the best captures.

Close in to Duck Island has produced small snapper, flathead and trevally on the flood tide. Bird Rock again produced the best bags of whiting, with most fish between 32cm and 36cm. Good reports came in from anglers chasing flathead between Hermsley and Clifton Springs. Most fish were between 40cm and 50cm but five-year-old Joseph Walsh showed dad up with a beauty of 54cm while fishing in two metres of water just off the boat ramp at Clifton Springs. As I mentioned earlier, the catch of the week must go to Rick Maes for his huge 5.8kg buck brown trout from Lake Purrumbete. Taken in the middle of the day on a trolled Tassie Devil, Rick’s brown would be a once-in-a-lifetime capture for most anglers. James Sullivan has been fishing Lake Connewarre over the past two weeks, landing over 50 eels of various sizes. None were better than the eel he took last Monday night, which pulled the scales down to 3.2kg. Bream anglers have been successful in the Anglesea River using Squidgy Critter soft plastics on ultra-light jig heads or the Coke Can colour SX 40 bibbed minnow. Early morning seems to be the time, with all the best resultse coming in the first hour of daylight. Send reports and photos to info@raylongtackle.com.au or visit Brian at Ray Long’s Fishing World, 105 Shannon Avenue, Manifold Heights.

BY FRANK MASON A BIG weekend of interleague games has each local league foregoing normal rounds of matches for the honour of taking on other leagues from around the state. This weekend sees a revamped Worksafe Victorian Country Football League Country Championships played across the state. Under the new format, the 16 major leagues have been ranked from one down and will play each other in that order. For example, one plays two, three versus four etcetera, with the higher the ranking representing the better VCFL officials have deemed the particular league. The title of Victorian Country Champion League will be the winner of the one-versus-two game between Ovens and Murray and Goulburn leagues Unfortunately for Geelong Football League, it has been ranked at number four in the state, so it cannot claim the title even if it beats Ballarat League at Ballarat’s Eastern Oval on Sunday. This hasn’t stopped the Geelong league putting together a strong squad under coach Terry Bright. Victory would see Geelong promoted to number two
