BY MICHELLE HERBISON BASKETBALL fans will help keep the region’s homeless population warm this winter with donations of blankets at a game this weekend. Leaders for Geelong’s Luke Britnell said his Rugged Up project included a blanket drive at Geelong Supercats’ last match of the season. A group of four participants from Committee for Geelong’s two-year leadership program were behind the drive, Mr Britnell said. “The hardship Geelong families and individuals face struck a chord with our project group and we’ve developed a way that will help.” The Rugged Up project had so far worked with Salvos Connect, Salvation Army and Barwon Youth to provide 120 blankets to the homeless but a “real shortage” remained, Mr Britnell said. “On any one night there could be 500 people homeless in Geelong, including sleeping in cars, couch-surfing and sleeping on the streets. This year the cost of living has gone up and this seems to be an increasing issue.” Mr Britnell said the group aimed to collect 500 blankets at the game to be distributed “immediately”. “We’ll take anything as long as it’s clean.” Mr Britnell said collection bins at VicRoads, GMHBA outlets and Geelong Arena could continue to accept blankets throughout August. The Supercats play Bendigo Braves 5.30pm Saturday at Geelong Arena.

Bully claims ‘rise fast’ Brodie’s Law, introduced in June, could punish perpetrators of “serious bullying” with up to 10 years’ imprisonment, he warned. The law was named for a bullying victim who committed suicide. Snr Const Noggler said cyberbullies could face 76 stalkingrelated and 38 cyber-related charges. “This includes threats to kill, threat to inflict serious injury, con-

duct endangering life and many, many obscure charges relating to stalking. Basically, it’s comments made about people that cause fear and apprehension in them. “It could be anything, like appearance or weight.” Snr Const Noggler said police must receive official complaints in order to lay charges. Attorney-General Robert Clark this week launched a Take a Stand Against Bullying campaign.

App makes allowance for students

The Independent, Friday August 10, 2012

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN STUDENT queues at Centrelink will reduce after this week’s national launch of a smart phone app at Deakin University’s Waurn Ponds campus. The Express Plus Students app is designed to make life easier for 400,000 students receiving Youth Allowance, Austudy or ABSTUDY. Senator Kim Carr said the app, initially for iPhone and iPod touch, gave students flexibility to manage their Centrelink obligations. “It is simple, user-friendly and will save people time,” Sen Carr said. “Students can complete the most common reporting requirements quickly and easily from any

location without having to call or visit an office. “They can report employment income, update course details and check their account history. “Centrelink is currently facing a period of very high demand, resulting in longer waiting times. This is one step towards reducing demand on the network.” Member for Corangamite Darren Cheeseman said students had already welcomed the new app. “I talk to a lot of students who attend uni here in Geelong and many say it’s much more suited to how they prefer to interact with a large organisation.” Students can download the Express Plus Students app now.

BY MICHELLE HERBISON A CAR driver involved in a fatal collision with a motorcyclist at Moolap is “completely innocent”, according to police. Leading Senior Constable Malcolm Durrant said the driver faced no charges over the accident on Tuesday. “He had no injuries but was pretty well shook up, of course.” The motorcycle rider crashed his Suzuki sports bike into the Falcon at the corner of High and Denbigh Sts, Moolap. The man had finished work and was riding down Denbigh St before the crash about 5.30pm. He died at the scene despite Ambulance crews’ attempt to resuscitate him. Snr Const Durrant said one witness had made a statement and “a couple of others” had said they heard the crash. The man’s family was “very upset” and refused to allow police to release his details, he said. The man’s boss from his Denbigh St workplace was also “upset”, Snr Const Durrant said.


Concern over future of Alcoa land

Heath in call for park BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN THE POSSIBLE closure of Alcoa in 2016 and sale of its Anglesea power station has led to a renewed push to protect the area’s pristine heath land. Geelong Environment Council (GEC) president Joan Lindros said the heath would be left to the mercy of new owners if Alcoa sold its Angelsea power station. The 6400 hectares that Alcoa did not require should be included in Great Otway National Park. The Independent revealed in April that Alcoa planned to continue operating the station to generate power for the electricity grid even if the compa-

ny closed its Pt Henry smelter. Alcoa received a $40 million government bailout package in June, saving 540 jobs for at least two years. Ms Lindros said GEC had written to Federal Environment Minister Tony Burke and Victorian Premier Ted Baillieu urging them to save the unmined section of the heath. Ms Lindros said the issue was urgent because Alcoa had given no guarantee it would remain in Geelong after the rescue funds ran out. “There may be no way of stopping the power station being sold to the highest bidder or given a new lease of heath land, which could allow a

greater area of coal to be mined.” Alcoa received a renewed 50-year lease on 7000Ha of health land from State Government earlier this year. “We strongly urge the area of the unique and irreplaceable Anglesea heath land not required by Alcoa be protected for all time by inclusion in the national park,” Ms Lindros said. Alcoa should also donate its unmined heath land to the park as community compensation for its “substantial” power subsidy and the bailout. Mr Burke told the Independent his department had yet to receive any referral for a proposed change to the coal mine operation.

“If Alcoa were to propose significant changes to the scale or intensity of these operations they would require approval under national environmental law. I am advised that the department has been in contact with Alcoa Ltd to inform them of their responsibilities.” A spokesperson for the Premier said State Government was aware of the request. Greens Senator Richard Di Natale said Anglesea’s heath was some of the most biodiverse land in the country. “The Greens support incorporating the majority of the heath land currently leased to Alcoa but not used into the Great Otway National Park.”

in brief Ball bounty A SECOND annual Geelong Mayoral Ball on Saturday night raised more than $80,000 for charity, according to its host. Mayor John Mitchell said the money would go to Geelong Hospital’s children’s ward, St John of God Hospital’s special care nursery and disability services provider Scope.

Lyons pride A GEELONG firm has won a Regional Master Builder of the Year award for a $6 million library at Deakin University’s Waurn Ponds campus. Master Builders Association gave the award to Lyons Constructions partly for its “clever use of raw and recycled materials”.

Jobs success A NEW program linking Whittington residents with jobs has helped half find work before graduation. Geelong council said 10 students were studying under the Whittington Works program, with the graduates to earn a Certificate III in Children’s Services.

National hopes for $1.7m trial targeting youth

FEDERAL Labor’s MP for Corio has flown to Nepal this week in his role as foreign affairs parliamentary secretary, according to a statement from his Geelong office. The statement said Richard Marles would discuss with Nepal’s government its work to “consolidate peace, stability and democracy” before travelling to Brunei and South Korea.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A GROUND-BREAKING Geelong early-intervention homelessness program could be rolled out nationally, according to welfare agencies. Swinburne University researchers are working on the $1.75 million Geelong Project with agencies Time for Youth and Barwon Youth. Swinburne Institute of Social Research’s Associate Professor David McKenzie and Dr Monica Thielking said the project was “poised to make a difference to youth homelessness”. The project involved up to 10,000 students from the Geelong area, Dr Thielking said. Work started in June on coordinating service providers and government agencies to identify need for early-intervention services. “This week is Homeless Persons Week, so it’s timely to reflect on the lives of those facing challenges every day,” Dr Thielking said. “We’ve found that once young people leave home or education it’s difficult to get back in. “The earlier we can identify and reduce that risk, the better their chances are in life.” Prof MacKenzie said the project aimed to ensure fewer children and young people fell through the cracks. “We need to break down silos of service delivery so it’s simply not possible for children to remain invisible.” Dr Thielking said Geelong was ideally set up to make the most of the project. “We’re very passionate about it not only because we have both worked in Geelong but because the services here are incredibly collaborative. “That makes it fertile ground for the development of a pilot program to integrate services.” The program includes an e-Wellbeing Toolbox allowing early Intervention teams to track who receives and provides support. The Victorian Government contributed $1.5 million to the project, with the Commonwealth providing $250,000 for research and evaluation. “Governments see this as a lighthouse project,” Prof MacKenzie said. “We’re really excited about what this project will deliver and we’re going to make sure the people of Geelong as well as people across Australia hear about it every step of the way.” The pilot program runs until September 2013.

A NEW riverside trail is sending pedestrians and cyclists under Moorabool Street Bridge rather than over the top where they previously mixed with traffic, according to a council spokesperson. Council officially opened the Barwon River trail this week, connecting an existing path at Barrabool Rd Belmont’s cycling criterium and boat ramp.

$2.4m project to cut waste at malting plant BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN AN INDUSTRIAL business in North Geelong has been producing as much waste-water as 450 households, the launch of a new plant heard this week. But Water Minister Peter Walsh said the $2.4 million project at Barrett Burston Malting would result in “significant” savings. The Geelong Maltings Water Recovery Project would reduce up to 55 per cent of Barrett Burston’s consumption and discharge, Mr Walsh said. “With Barwon Water setting an industry target reduction of up to 25 per cent by 2015, we are well on the road to achieving this.” “This project will reduce potable water use by up to 135 megalitres a year and reduce trade waste discharge by around 140 megalitres a year.” Mr Ryan said Regional Development Victoria provided $1 million to the project from its $1 billion Regional Growth Fund. Barrett Burston general manager Noel Johnson said the wastewater plant treated 500,000 litres a day. “This is an excellent example of government and business working together to achieve an outcome that works for business and the community,” Mr Johnson said. “This project is a demonstration of our commitment to our Geelong plant and cements it as one of the leading malt houses in the country. “Our plant is working a full capacity producing 100,000 tonnes of malt a year with around a third exported to international customers.” Barrett Burston is part of GrainCorp.

Government set to ‘renourish’ Port’s beach A PORTARLINGTON beach renourishment project will start this month, according to State Government. Minister for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith said the project would be complete by late September. The $500,000 project is part of a State Government $9.54 million program to dump sand on “high priority” beaches around Port Phillip Bay. The Independent reported last year the project was due to begin last July. A

$300,000 renourishment project at Clifton Springs was also planned. The program has sparked controversy and environmental concerns. Last October Mr Smith halted a Port Phillip Bay renourishment project amid complaints its red quarry sand was incompatible with the beach. Geelong Environment Council’s Joan Lindros told the Independent in March that the Government should address causes of coastal erosion instead.

Department of Sustainability and Environment project managers confirmed the project would use sand from nearby Point Richards. Bellarine Bayside Committee of Management chair Cathy Whelan said DSE would also source other “high-grade, quality” beach sand. The project would “at times” restrict access to the beach, a coastal trail and a foreshore road east of Portarlington Pier, Ms Whelan said.

Electricity sparks up seat battle BY MICHELLE HERIBSON LIBERAL candidate for Corangamite Sarah Henderson has accused Federal Government of “blaming others” for surging electricity prices despite introducing a carbon tax. “The electricity bills are starting to arrive throughout Corangamite and families and businesses are starting to experience bill shock from Julia Gillard’s carbon tax,” Ms Henderson said. Electricity prices had risen 60 per cent since Labor came to government, she said. “Now, after introducing the world’s biggest carbon tax, (Julia Gillard) wants the people of Corangamite to believe she understands what households and businesses are facing. “How can the Prime Minister who said ‘There will be no carbon tax under the government I lead’ be believed when it comes to claims about electricity prices now?” Ms Henderson said Labor had approved all electricity network price rises in recent years through its Australian Energy Regulator. The only way to tackle rising electricity prices was to “scrap the carbon tax”, she said. Labor Member for Corangamite Darren Cheeseman said compensation for the carbon tax left consumers better off financially. The 60 per cent increase in prices

MPs safe in preselection BOTH THE region’s federal MPs have nominated for pre-selection to fight the next election, ALP Victoria assistant state secretary Kosmos Samaras has confirmed. Victorian ALP preselection nominations formally close at midday on Friday. Corangamite MP Darren Cheeseman, whose seat has Australia’s smallest federal margin, confirmed his nomination, as did Corio’s Richard Marles. Mr Samaras said they were the only nominations for their seats. “If there is a contest I strongly believe both would be selected,” Mr Samaras said. was the responsibility of the states, he said. “The Commonwealth doesn’t own electricity-generating assets. In Victoria, some of that was privatised under the Kennett government.” Mr Cheeseman said private generators and retailers were responsible for how much they charged. The price on carbon was about “cleaning up our atmosphere” in response to climate change, he said.

ONE OF the region’s long-standing environmental groups grew out of a botanical faux pas. Teacher Edith Lawn was searching Anglesea heath for an appropriate subject for her students to sketch. She noticed some large white spider orchids in bloom. Not realising they were protected, she picked a bunch. A local admonished Edith for picking the orchids. Concerned at her error, she discovered the strong regard of locals for the flora of the area. Edith thought more people should appreciate the rare heritage of flora and fauna in the Anglesea district. After meeting other like-minded locals, Anglesea Airey’s Inlet Society for the Protection of Flora and Fauna was propagated in 1969.

where – three orchids, the Anglesea grey gum and the Anglesea grevillea. “There are also lots of small animals calling the heath home, many of them nocturnal and small, so they’re unseen and often considered unimportant.� Ellinor said Angair was respected in the community for its history in protecting the environment, including early members physically preventing bulldozers from scarring delicate ecosystems. “Compromises can be reached with development,� she explained. “We don’t try to be protesters but talk with all parties when an issue arises. For instance, Alcoa is working closely with Angair to revegetate mine areas more carefully. “We prefer working with people rather than against them.�

Join the club JOHN VAN KLAVEREN Angair, as the organisation is known, is dedicated to protecting indigenous flora and fauna and maintaining the natural beauty of Anglesea and Airey’s Inlet and their surrounding environments. Angair volunteer Ellinor Campbell said the heath, in particular, offered a rich diversity of native plants, many rare or endangered. “Anglesea heath is also home to several endemic plants not found else-

Angair’s library contains an excellent collection of books, periodicals and other publications on a variety of natural history and environmental topics, providing a valuable resource for members and residents alike. Angair advocacy has led to the acquisition and protection of areas such as Elizabeth Street Reserve, Ironbark Basin and heathlands at Urquhart Bluff and Anglesea. The group’s efforts have led to conservation covenants and national heritage listings protecting environmental sites in the area. Angair lobbies governments on environmental issues and contributes to private and government studies on the area and its biodiversity. Ellinor said anyone interested in joining the group could phone Angair on 5263 1085 or visit angair.org.au.

Lulu’s ‘barking mad’ about council services Furry ‘candidate’ off leash in mayor election dogfight get our new supermarket up because of ridiculous rules. We want council to do what we want, not what they want.” Lulu’s “co-campaigner”, Karen Reiter, said discontent with council was “running through town”. “We pay a lot of rates and don’t get a lot of services for it. Lulu is not going to take a salary except for a couple of dog biscuits.” Cr Mitchell was unimpressed by Mr Hynes’ dogged comments. “I wouldn’t even dignify Bob, who’s a failed candidate for council, with an answer.” Mr Fagg also declined to comment on the Lulu campaign. But he said the direct election of the mayor was “in many ways a potentially game-changing opportunity for Geelong”. “With good leadership council can go forward and develop opportunities Geelong needs to make the economy and the community stronger. (The direct election) is.” Mr Fagg said council could offset the added costs of a directly-elected mayor in its budget. The Independent reported in April that preferential voting would choose the mayor. Voters would receive two ballot papers, one for their ward and one for the mayor, State Government said. Residents will vote in Victorian council elections on October 27.

St Leonards’ Bob Hynes said he was offering his dog, Lulu, as a third mayoral candidate because he was “barking mad” about a “lack of service” from council. “As a protest vote we want people to vote for Lulu to send a message to the local government department that we’re not really interested.” Mr Hynes said Lulu would join the dogfight between candidates Mayor John Mitchell and businessman Keith Fagg, both of whom had “little to offer residents”. Council was barking up the wrong tree spending ratepayers’ money on additional mayoral costs instead of investing in services for the community, he said. Council’s budget includes $160,000 in civic allowances for the directlyelected mayor. Election costs including a separate ballot for the mayor would dig a $650,000 hole in council funds. Mr Hynes said eight years ago council earmarked a project to build footpaths and seal Murradoc Rd at St Leonards’ entrance but the work was “still no closer to getting it done”. “And it took a number of years to

This is simply the reason that your 21 year old can eat 2 Big Macs while you are microwaving your “Lite n easy” Growing lean muscle is like growing a garden. Given the right nutrients and the right conditions, it will thrive. There is also no better way to resistance train than under the watchful eye of a great trainer. More active tissue means more ability to metabolise the food you take in.

Coastal dedication puts Cate among Landcare finalists BY MICHELLE HERBISON AN OCEAN Grove woman’s dedication to protecting the region’s coast has put her among finalists in 2012’s national Landcare awards. Ocean Grove Coastcare acting president Cate Barham, 22, has been a committed volunteer with the group since its 2010 inception. “It’s not just my award because we’re a group and we all work together,” she said. “There are so many other really amazing volunteers so it’s definitely a team effort.” Ms Barham said she balanced full-time work at Corangamite Catchment Authority with organising working bees, education days and events on coastal protection for Coastcare. “One of our core beliefs is to work as much within our community as we can.” Ms Barham listed environmental issues in Ocean Grove including effective litter control, responsible pet ownership and “garden escapee” plants disrupting coastal dunes’ biodiversity. The Ocean Grove group often conducted working bees around Collendina to remove “invasive and nasty” weed polygala. Ms Barham said the group also ran education programs with the Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club’s nippers and attended local festivals to teach new residents how to protect the area’s dunes. Ocean Grove Coastcare was “pretty different” to many similar organisations because most members were young and worked full-time, she said. “A lot of other groups have a lot of retirees who have lots of time but we sometimes don’t have a lot of time. “Having a lot of young people in the group makes it more appealing for other younger people to join but we want more members of every age.”

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG is experiencing a major project lull, according to civic leaders. State Government’s latest list of priority infrastructure has two Geelong projects, exacerbating disappointment over the loss of promised developments this year. The project misses include relocating the car trade to Geelong, the choice of Hastings over Bay West as a second container port, downgrading priority of the Avalon rail link and doubts over a the city hosting a Red Bull air race and an NDIS trial. Mayoral candidate Keith Fagg wanted to see more Geelong-based projects. “The car trade decision was very disappointing but we have to understand the auto industry was strongly against it. “We will get disappointments along the way but we need to be out there looking at as many projects as possible. “In future I’d like to see the City of Greater Geelong do as much advocacy as possible to get a spot on the list. “I’d like to see Geelong in the mix and advocating actively for infrastructure needs to State Government. “We need a strong voice at the table so needed projects in our area get as high priority as possible.” Committee for Geelong executive director and Regional Development Australia vice-chair Peter Dorling said planning for the next wave of projects was underway. “While we don’t have a lot of Geelong-centric projects in there, we’re at the planning stage for a few.” Mr Dorling said Infrastructure Australia had indicated a long-range plan for the development of Port of Geelong was needed. He said planning for the next stage of Geelong’s ring road to the Bellarine Peninsula was also underway, as reported in last week’s Independent. “One project on the list that is important for Geelong is Melbourne’s east-west transport link. “Geelong drivers have been struggling to get in and out of Melbourne for some time and this will help, provided it has a connection to the Melbourne central area. “We have also done fairly well with the regional rail project, which gives us the opportunity to open the intercity rail links to Ballarat and Bendigo.” Premier Ted Baillieu said State Government was investing a record $5.8 billion in infrastructure.

THOUSANDS of primary and secondary students have forced an extra day for performances in Geelong Schools Music and Movement Festival (GSMMF), according to organisers. They said the 66th annual festival was “one of the biggest”, with 2732 students from 44 schools from across the Barwon South West region participating. Geelong Performing Arts Centre scheduled the extra day to cater for 500 extra students this year. The festival began on Monday and finishes this Friday. The festival gives students opportunities to star at the arts centre in performances including song and dance, circus acts, rock and concert bands, choirs and orchestras. Performing arts centre general manager Jill Smith said the longevity of the festival and its strong participation was a “tribute to the hard work and dedication of students and teachers”. “The GSMMF continues to be a highlight of the Geelong schools calendar bit it also requires a lot of hard work from everyone involved,” Ms Smith said.

Highlanders on move again

Deakin to host next gathering GEELONG Highland Gathering is moving to Waurn Ponds with plans to “rebuild and expand”, according to organisers. The event announced it would operate next at Deakin University on March 3 after its third change of venue in four years. Gathering president John Fraser said the event also wanted “new and younger” committee members. He described the gathering’s future as “exciting” under a new business plan. “With the move to the Waurn Ponds campus in 2013, new opportunities will open up because we now have a wonderful long-term home with much of the ambience of Queen’s Park and we will make the most of it,” Mr Fraser said. “What we do need is to attract new and younger members to our committees to enable us to exploit the opportunities that we intend

following through. “We are looking at introducing many new programs…and I am really excited about the future and what we can do to again make Geelong the unquestioned premier highland gathering in Australia.” Scheduling clashes with other events forced the gathering from its traditional home at Queen’s Park in 2010. The event moved to Fyansford before a shift to Geelong Showgrounds in 2011 saved the event from folding. The event has also changed its date in 2013 from the third Sunday in March to the first Sunday. The gathering said the date change would avoid scheduling clashes with other gatherings on “the tight national Scottish events calendar”. Mr Fraser said the committee had plans to expand the gathering to two days and restore its title as Australia’s premier Scottish

event, which it “enjoyed for 52 years”. The gathering also hoped to resume as host of Victorian Pipe Band Championships when bids for the event opened in 2014, he said. The gathering formerly hosted the championships for almost a decade. Mr Fraser said council, its major events arm and Geelong Otway Tourism supported the gathering’s unsuccessful bid for the 2014 championships but he was confident of putting a “much stronger case” for 2016. Geelong had a strong Scottish history but the gathering traditionally drew support from “the wider Australian community”, he said. “I hope we can attract people from both within and outside the Scottish community to help us expand the gathering and ensure it remains one of Geelong’s major events.”

CYBER CRIME ON THE RISE Instances of Cyber crime are on the increase, with more than 2000 people a day becoming victims on the internet. From simple cases of clicking on the wrong screen on the wrong website, to elaborate scams and hoaxes involving identity theft, criminals are actively using the internet to gain access to your data. The reason that most of these hoaxes work is that the criminals or hackers use methods that come across as sounding official, and get you to react by clicking on links that look like the real thing whilst really giving strangers access to your personal information through the internet. If you receive suspect e-mail, pop ups, phone calls or your computer’s running slow all of a sudden, you might have experienced a cyber attack. Whilst it is not impossible to prevent an attack, here are some basic things to remember: • Do NOT give your personal information or passwords to anyone who contacts YOU on the telephone. • You have not won a multi million dollar lottery anywhere, it simply does not work like that. • You know why you are on a particular website so there is no reason to click on any screens that pop up when you visit. • There are no princes fleeing countries who need you to hold their personal fortunes for them. • People on the telephone calling you don’t have any way of knowing your computer is broken, including people claiming to be from big computer companies. If you are unsure, call the companies themselves before disclosing information. • Use technicians that you know, trust, and have a respected relationship with their community.

Cyber Crime Statistics details as below: – 25% cyber crime remain unresolved – 75 Million Scam Emails are sent every day claiming 2,00 victims – 73% of Americans have experienced some form of cyber crime and (65% globally) do the same. – 10.5% of the world’s Hackers from the UK – 66% of the world’s hackers are American – 7.5% are Nigerian – Brazil suffers more than any other country with 83% of the population having suffered from internet crime Source: http://www.ecybercrime.com/2011_02_01_archive.html

Riding high: Charity riders Luke Martin and Ada Hodgson.

A GEELONG couple plans to put Africans on bikes with a 6000km ride around America. Ada Hodgson and Luke Martin said their tour around the country’s mid-west would raise money to help Bicycles for Humanity. The Melbourne-based charity provides bicycles for African families living in poverty. Ms Hodgson said she and Mr Martin had already raised over $1000 for the oganisation. “They do such amazing work and really impact on people’s daily lives. We wanted to do something extraordinary to help.” The couple’s “fully self-supported” ride would take the couple to American icons including Yellowstone National Park,

Yosemite, Death Valley, the Grand Canyon and Monument Valley. Mr Martin, who recently graduated from Deakin University, said the trip had taken months of planning. The couple hoped to begin later this month, he said. “We are passionate cyclists and are proud to support such a sustainable cause doing a lot of good to a lot of people.” Bicycles for Humanity founder Matt McCullogh said the couple’s ride would “break the poverty cycle” for many African families. A bike in Africa could mean access to health care, education, fresh water and economic opportunity, he said. “A bike allows someone to

travel twice as far, twice as fast and carry four times the load. “Breaking the cycle of poverty by providing sustainable transport for one person impacts not only on their life but also the lives of their families, communities and future generations.” Mr McCullogh said the support of “remarkable people like Luke and Ada” had helped his charity ship 3000 bikes to Africa in the past three and a half years. Ms Hodgson appealed for donations and offers of bikes for the charity. “Our dream is to raise enough funds to donate one entire shipping container of bikes.” Ms Hodgson said prospective donors should visit everydayhero.com.au/lukeandada.

MP confusing us on marriage intention

Darren Cheeseman they can afford as well as voting to remove discrimination by those insisting on monogamy and parenthood

Beyond the extreme THOSE who dare question the dominant paradigm of endless economic growth are often labeled socialists, anti-capitalists or extremists. When our economy grows three per cent a year – the minimum GDP growth rate, according to economists – it doubles in size every 25 years. That’s right, double the number of cars, trucks, houses, shops, hamburgers and toasters. All the material and energy throughputs that make up our economy must double. That’s extreme. When Australia’s productivity stopped growing in 1998, the only way to continue GDP growth was to grow the working population. Tiny children now spend all day in childcare so more women can work. When that strategy maxed out, we grew the knowledge economy. When the tech wreck happened in 2000 the only way left to grow GDP was to grow migration and the financial sector. New financial instruments like derivatives allowed banks to loan new money to even-riskier customers. The global derivatives market grew from $150 trillion dollars in 2002 to $700 trillion dollars today. Risky loans meant more personal defaults, corporate defaults, massive sovereign debt and a collapse in credit markets. All this chaos in the pursuit of endless growth. That’s extreme. It’s clear economic growth cannot continue. Next election, ask your candidate whether they have a plan for an orderly transition to a post-growth economy. If they represent a political party starting with L they stand for endless growth in a world of finite energy and resources. Now who’s extreme? Phil Baulch Independent candidate for Austin Ward Belmont

In control of vote IN REGARD to Ralph Huisman’s letter in last week’s Independent, I did not say compulsory voting equaled mind control (Letters, July 20). I said it was a form of mind control. Read my letter again and try to understand what I was implying. Who says I don’t vote? I vote at every election and not informally. I have previously been a member of the Labor party but resigned when the carbon tax was proposed. I did not vote for that! I loved Mr Huisman’s letter in the July 20 Independent about State Government dumping fluoride in our water supply. Did Mr Huisman vote for that? Who’s the hypocrite? Mr Huisman should get his head out of his Thesaurus. Darren Thurrowgood St Albans Park

Facts to fear IN RESPONSE to the letter headlined ‘Fluoride’s all right’ in the August 3 Independent, I am sorry if I made Suzanne Bridson’s indifference to the fluoride issue become an avenue for her to “get involved”. Hospitals do not give all patients tap water. Every kidney dialysis unit uses filtered water because people with diminished kidney function are unable to filter out toxic fluorides. Ms Bridson is deceived if she thinks fluorosilicic acid (FSA) is diluted by the time it reaches her tap. FSA is extremely corrosive and leaches heavy metals from water pipes, producing more contaminants in the water. Fluoridation is not a religion, therefore I don’t “believe” it is bad for our health – I know it is. For proven facts, Ms Bridson can refer to a recently published Harvard study titled Developmental Fluoride Neurotoxicity: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis. An entry states: “Fluoride readily crosses the placenta. Fluoride exposure to the developing brain, which is much more susceptible to injury caused by toxicants than is the mature brain, may possibly lead to damage of a permanent nature”. Those who need to “believe” FSA is safe in order to not live in “fear” can just ignore anti-fluoridation opinions. Others would find further research prudent.

because it doesn’t fit with socalled equality. Mr Cheesmen doesn’t want us to use the term gay marriage. He wants us to use the word equal. He wants us to move from something we understand to something we don’t understand - “marriage equality”. He wants us to use confusing terms. Will he later change the meaning of equality? Mr Cheeseman has no right to misrepresent us in this way. John Modra Colac

Those needing extra fluoride will find that fluoride is 18.4 per cent of Prozac, 17.9 per cent of Luvox and 6.1 per cent of Paxil. Each drug uses fluoride as their key element that reacts with brain tissue. Anna L Michalik Bell Post Hill

Act of cowardice GOOD going, Susan Bridson, for getting involved (Letters, August 8). I, too, wish fluoridation didn’t need addressing. However, as a sufferer from chemical sensitivity I find it extremely slack of governments to not research this more or to provide toxicity tests for those with ill health due to the placement of hydrofluorosilicic acid in tap water, not to mention environmental and infrastructure damage. In my opinion, the 1973 Fluoridation Act is cowardly and abhorrent where it states that no one has a right of action against a water supply authority, its staff or anyone acting under its direction or its behalf under contract in respect of anything done regarding fluoridation of a public water supply in accordance with the act. If fluoride is so good for us why was this clause made a part of the Act? Sandra Camm Highton

Moment of truth Once to every man and nation; Comes the moment to decide; In of strife for truth with falsehood; For the good or evil side. What will Julia Gillard say to America about Julian Assange? I think Australia likes to know the truth. The truth is out, so leave him alone. Joan McKenna Newtown

MEMBER for Corangamite Darren Cheeseman is clearly prepared to misrepresent the people of his electorate. Unlike him, they don’t easily change their minds. Unlike him, they are not swayed by recent mail outs and selective statistics, let alone are they ignorant enough to say so. Mr Cheeseman wants our permission to vote with a small group wanting to let everyone do what they like and call it marriage. Presumably they will also vote for men to have as many wives and children as

State of decline IT MUST be apparent now that State Government is not functioning for the people after projecting a negative attitude for years when in opposition that things were bad economically. Workers losing jobs in industry are outnumbered by the workforce indirectly sacked by State Government. We do not have a healthy manufacturing industry in the field of export. Our main employer is the service industry, like in Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain, all of whose revenue is boosted with tourism. We have big holes in the ground but our import/export industries are still out of whack, mainly due to the so-called level playing field. Europe has the strongest economy in the world because of its healthy workforce, which creates wealth for countries. E Ruseler South Geelong

Bin it instead HAVE readers ever thought about what happens to their litter when they just throw it on the ground? Well, with Keep Australia Beautiful Week coming up and the amount of rubbish littered along our roads and highways it seems that a lot of people don’t think about it and many people still aren’t getting the message. My friends and I always put our rubbish in the bin, so I don’t understand why others don’t or why adults driving in cars throw their rubbish outside instead of taking it home to put in their bin. We are lucky to live in one of the most beautiful countries in the world but treat it like a rubbish tip. And, with the other big environmental problems we face, keeping litter off our streets is one of the easiest things we can do to protect the environment. It’s simple and is something everyone can do. Please do the right thing and help keep Australia beautiful by always putting your rubbish in a bin. It’s that easy.

Colliding in Geelong like a marriage and we had to end it. We shouldn’t have been in a creative relationship but Ryan’s a great dude and a fantastic drummer.” Mackay joked he and Crawley were “dating” replacement drummer Mitch McGregor but could not confirm whether he would become a permanent member after the tour. “We’ll have to see how he feels and how we feel during the tour before we get engaged,” Mackay laughed. “We’ve known Mitch for a year and it felt good to jam with him, so we’ll see what happens.” Mackay was “most proud” of Monument. “It’s groove-based, an area of music I love listening to.” Artist Isobel Knowles designed the cover art, depicting a threedimensional felt sculpture. Mackay was enamoured with her work. “No one can tell it’s made out of felt,” he said. “It’s really cool. It’s a really strong image.” Mackay joked about making a memorable entrance at the band’s Geelong show at The Bended Elbow on September 8. “I’m actually going to come in from a flying fox, then I’ll leave the stage via the same flying fox. “Don’t know how, but I’ll work it out.”

Zombie romance in Geelong show

Collision course: Children Collide’s Heath Crawley and Johnny Mackay.

ZOMBIES will reveal their romantic side on stage in Geelong this weekend. They will feature in new Geelong play Dead As We Are, which began its four-date season last week. Co-writer, director and “lead zombie” Mitchell James O’Neil described the production as a “romantic comedy – with zombies!” The script features a “hoard” of zombies putting together a “survivor pack” for an “annoying” human. “I came up with the idea while I was talking to some zombie enthusiasts and I thought ‘Wouldn’t it be interesting to see a zombie story from a zombie’s point of view,” O’Neil said. The “light-hearted” comedy featured five characters and “heaps” of zombies. “If you don’t find this show funny then maybe you’re as dead as we are,” O’Neil said. Dead As We Are plays at Lt Ryrie St’s Hollywood Theatre on Saturday and Sunday. O’Neil said tickets were available from Screen Actors Geelong, phone 5229 1600 or email geelong@admin.screenactors.com.au.

BY CHERIE DONNELLAN JOHNNY Mackay’s housemate once scrawled ‘children collide’ on a household bill. The words then became the name of his band when Mackay penned them onto Children Collide’s first bill, a Halloween party. Mackay revealed to the Independent that the housemate was also his bandmate, bassist Heath Crawley. “It just sounded like a good band name when I read it, so we used it.” Speaking to the Independent from New York, the Children Collide singer and guitarist said he was eager to play songs from new album Monument on the band’s upcoming Australian tour. “We’ll be doing a lot of new stuff on tour, so I’m excited to come home and play.” Children Collide underwent dramatic changes in 2012, with Mackay moving to America after drummer Ryan Caesar left the band. Mackay said he “needed” the change to his new Brooklyn home but remained committed to the band. “I’ve just chosen to live here for a bit, that’s all.” Caesar’s departure was “amicable”, Mackay wanted to assure fans. “Our relationship was kind of

Get fit with the Boxfit team, using their old school training techniques designed to get YOU results! From weight loss, to personal fitness, to building confidence and self esteem through to self defence, Clint and Brad will tailor a program to your personal needs. Boxfit’s Brad Pedersen and Clint Alderton.

Fighting fitness oxfit Geelong’s boxing specialisations combine fitness principles with selfdefence techniques. Co-owner and head trainer Clint Alderton says knowing how to defend yourself is not only a physical skill, it raises selfesteem. “Being able to have the confidence knowing you can defend yourself is very empowering,” Clint says. “But what’s really great about Boxfit’s classes is that you’re losing weight and gaining fitness at the same time.” Clint says clients learn boxing, kickboxing and Muay Thai train-

B

ing techniques in a group environment. He encourages people from any fitness level to participate. “There’s no pressure. You can go along with the group but still learn at your own pace. “There’s never a bad time to start getting in shape and learning defence skills.” People wanting to excel their skill base or reach weight and fitness goals can also attend personal training sessions, Clint says. “Having that one-on-one training can excel your skills and fitness at a much faster rate. “Our personal trainers work closely with clients to achieve their per-

sonal goals.” Boxfit’s programs are designed to help clients literally beat the winter blues. Clint says winter workouts will build and maintain fitness, help curb comfort-eating habits and increase motivation for wellrounded health. “People are often put off training during winter because of the cold but we have a warm gym, so there’s no excuses.” Boxfit Geelong’s studio gym is on the corner of Fyans and Wood Sts, South Geelong.

Many customers love it because they can take their doonas straight home after cleaning and put them right on the bed.” Kerry opened the first Daisy franchise two years ago after looking for a business opportunity. “We’ve had a fantastic response. It has made many people happy because they like to be able to make a conscious choice that’s better for the environment and safer for the operators as well.” Daisy is at shop 2–3/16 The Centreway, Lara, Phone 5282 4148 and has an agency at Aunty Ivy, shop 2/364 Pakington St, Geelong West.

hose little scrapes and scratches around the bumper area of cars are so annoying. A little car park bingle is all it takes to affect the appearance – and lower the value – of any car. Bumper Master has the answer: a quick and simple repair, usually at less than the cost of the insurance excess. Bumper Master’s Eddy says bumpers are usually the first part of any car to incur damage. “First impressions are important, especially when trying to sell,” Eddy explains. “All Bumper Master repairs come with a no-questions-asked warranty to give customers peace of mind.” Even the members of Corvettes of Geelong car club trust Eddy with their precious automotive investments. Eddy regularly hosts members of the club at his South Geelong workshop for a hoist day, enabling owners to give their favourite car an underbody inspection. Eddy says the day presented a perfect opportunity for Corvette owners to check leaks rattles, exhaust systems, transmission and engine mounts or any loose wiring. Bumper Master also fits reversing sensors to help customers protect their cars from annoying lowimpact collisions. “Reversing sensors help prevent damage to owners’ cars as well as the vehicles of neighbours and other motorists,” Eddy says. “They can also help when backing out of tight garages and past narrow gateposts.” Located behind VicRoads at 3 Dowsett St, South Geelong, Bumper Master has proven experience in providing an alternative repair service to bumper regions of any car. Eddy is available on 5221 0138 to improve the resale value of any car.

like at times. There’s a fair element of European feel as the French engineers have had a big say in the dynamics of the South Korean machine. The standard Latitude uses 17-inch alloys with higher profile (50 series) tyres so may be a better bet for real world driving. We will try to get hold of a standard Latitude and test it for a week in our home area to compare it with this week’s Luxe. Renault Latitude has a refined, quiet feel that will appeal to many in this class of affordable family car. It offers a lot of equipment for a modest outlay and the high-build quality seems sure to attract those who are more interested in refinement than a fancy badge on the front.

BY ERIC BLAIR enault Latitude is a conservatively styled, mid-sized sedan that, although wearing a wellknow European badge is actually built in South Korea by Samsung Motors. Renault and Samsung cooperated in the design, with Japanese partner Nissan also having a fair bit of influence, the latter working on the V6 engine which is similar to the one used in the 2.5-litre Nissan Maxima. To further appeal to potential buyers, the Renault Latitude has a fiveyear/unlimited distance warranty, as well as five years of roadside assistance. All the South Korean car makers have improved their build quality in recent times and the Samsung plant that builds the Latitude has been judged the best in the country. Power comes from either a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel four cylinder producing 127 kilowatts of power, and 380 Newton metres of torque at 2000 rpm; or a petrol 2.5-litre V6. The V6 engine could prove a sales winner in a class of sedans that are mostly powered by four-cylinder units. Power from the Renault V6 is 133 kW, torque peaks at 235 Nm at 4400 revs. We haven’t reviewed it in as much detail as the turbo-diesel, but really love the sound and feel of the V6. Visibility outwards is fine and the large windscreen pillars take less away from the front three-quarter view than in many other recent models. Steering and handling are generally okay, though they are softer than we

sport Joeys to snuff Dragons’ fire REIGNING premier Bell Park will find itself outside the top five if it can’t beat St Joseph’s at Hamlyn Park on Saturday. The Dragons have had a pretty solid year but have fallen off the pace of late and are now in real danger of not having the chance to defend their title. It’s not a dramatic form slump or change of coach that’s caused the problems but a departure of players. In what is a real boost to Geelong Football League’s profile as the best in country Victoria, two of Bell Park’s best players are now playing AFL – Tom Couch with Melbourne and Jackson Sheringham with Geelong. The Dragons have also lost Charlie Hallam, best on ground in last year’s grand final, and stalwart defender Dean Talbot. Both have retired. When you add up this talent, it’s a wonder the Dragons are anywhere near the five. Third placed St Joseph’s is a bit of an enigma, with great performances followed by ordinary ones. Last week it lost to eighth placed St Mary’s by a single point despite being 43 down at half time. A consistent performance in this game should see

Local Footy FRANK MASON Joeys over the line and relegate Bell Park to sixth spot. Other selections: COLAC v Lara, Grovedale v LEOPOLD, NEWTOWN v West Saints, St Alban’s v NORTH SHORE, St Mary’s v SOUTH BARWON.

BFL Drysdale will be out to prove its shock win over premiership favourite Queenscliff was no fluke when it travels to Spring Creek to take on second placed Torquay. The Hawks upset the previously unbeaten Coutas

on Saturday. The Eagles have had a terrible run with injuries, losing the likes of Michael Jennings, Jayke Mawson for the season, while big man Simon Prymke is also battling to be fit. Last weekend Thomson gave them a football lesson on its way to a 93-point victory. Lucas Murphy and Jesse Mawson can hold their heads high but the rest of the side is struggling. Inverleigh will be no pushover because it is now playing the kind of footy that saw it play finals last year. Dean Muir is leading by example and the rest are following. While the side cannot play finals this year, it would dearly love to finish on a strong note. This is on the cards because the demoralised Eagles are ripe for another defeat. Expect the visiting Hawks to win a close one. Other selections: Anakie v WERRIBEE CENTRALS, Winchelsea v NORTH GEELONG, BELL East Geelong will fall out of Geelong and District POST HILL v Corio, Bannockburn v THOMSON Football League’s top five if it losses to Inverleigh and Geelong West v BELMONT LIONS.

by a single point last weekend to shore up fourth spot on the ladder. Beating Torquay on Saturday would announce to the competition that they are the real deal – and what a good time to do it with finals only a few weeks away. Julian Hildebrand, Josh Inglis and Steve Bensted are in top form and the whole side will be brimming with confidence. Torquay has full forward Scott Hughes in outstanding form and he has 84 goals for the year. He is benefitting from the solid around-theground work of Josh Carracher, Adam Gross and Jarryd Garner. The Tigers have a strong home ground advantage and Drysdale will go down fighting by a few points. Other selections: BARWON HEADS v Newcomb, MODEWARRE v Portarlington, AMATEURS v Anglesea, QUEENSCLIFF v Ocean Grove.

Gales force anglers to back up for salmon along coast On the bite BRIAN LONG GALE-FORCE winds greeted anglers last weekend but the offshore direction left plenty of locations available to anglers, the fish were certainly there for the taking. Cinema Point produced salmon averaging 1.5kg in huge numbers. For over three hours it was a fish-a-cast on lure last Sunday. Sheoaks, just past Lorne, yielded salmon under 1kg. They were in limited numbers but patience resulted in average catches of around a dozen fish, with lure again proving best. Tony Longford spun the rough water at Devils Elbow, catching and releasing around 20 salmon before the tide rose so high that retreating from the rock platform become difficult. Salmon were also taken from Point Lonsdale Pier where, like everywhere else, anyone without lures generally went home empty-handed. Snapper anglers generally found fish difficult to come by but not Geoff Marles. He fished the rocks at North Shore last Saturday night to land two magnificent snapper better than 5kg each. Tucked up close to Corio Quay, Nathan Brimley caught a couple of snapper on pilchard baits over a four-hour stint. With

Fish tales: Andrew Gower with a trout from Lake Tooliorook and Dan Mackrell displays a 51cm Glenelg River estuary perch. both fish weighing 5.2kg, he still had a great night. Plenty of whitebait were in the bays, with good numbers of salmon harassing them. Fishing close in to Alcoa Pier produced consistent numbers of fish, some nudging 2kg and caught on either small metal baitfish imitations or soft plastics. The strong winds discoloured the water in Corio and Port Phillip bays,

resulting in only average captures of squid. The marina at Queenscliff seemed to remain the place to try for this species. The same area has also been a hot spot for silver trevally on soft plastics. Looking for some protection from the elements, Paul Delaney tried Deep Lake where he caught three nice rainbow trout around 1.5kg. Paul used orange-coloured Powerbait

and saw another angler land three fish of similar size on woolly bugger flies. Andrew Gower hit Lake Tooliorook where the conditions were fine and producing numbers of rainbows between 1kg and 2kg. Powerbait has been the bait, with trollers finding Tassie Devils the lure of choice. Numerous anglers returned from lakes Purrumbete and Bullen Merri with a mix

of brown and rainbow trout. Trolling produced the best results, with the pinkcoloured Tassie Devils a clear favourite. Newlyn Reservoir rewarded Danny Gibson for his patience. Fishing mudeye under a bubble float, Danny caught four nice brown trout between 900g and 2.2kg. Danny says the fish were quite active from mid-morning until early afternoon. Lake Learmonth, near Ballarat, remained consistent for bait anglers using Powerbait or smelt. Discoloured water made lure fishing difficult but it was a different story for fly anglers whose grizzle woolly buggers worked a treat. Many anglers continued trekking to the Glenelg River where the mulloway fishing has been fantastic, with good numbers of fish to 8kg taken on vibestyle lures. Bream have also been taken in respectable numbers but estuary perch have really attracted plenty of anglers, with Dan Mackrell landing a beauty of 51cm. This weekend’s forecast of southerly winds promises ideal conditions for surf angling at Artillery Rock and Wye River where the wind will be slightly from behind. Remember that lures will be the most productive. Freshwater anglers will find Deep Lake a great option. Bait anglers should use Powerbait, while lure casters should try shallow-running bibbed lures such as Rapala X Raps and Eco Gear MX 48s. Send reports and photos to info@raylongtackle.com.au or visit Brian at Ray Long’s Fishing World, 105 Shannon Ave, Manifold Heights.
