Call to ‘man up’ against assault ACTOR John Shearman has a message for Geelong: man up on violence against women. Shearman, pictured, appeared in You the Man when it spread the message in Geelong this week. The play encourages bystanders to help prevent violence against women. A panel discussion accompanies You the Man in a program exploring dating violence, sexual assault and “the power of bystanders to intervene safely�. Deakin University’s Professor Ann Taket, Virginia Murray and Patrick van der Werft worked with the play’s American creator to adapt it for Australian audiences. “Our session (was) intended to get conversations started about how bystanders can intervene in incidents they observe or otherwise become aware of and interrupt the cycle of violence,� Prof Taket said. Barwon Health presented You the Man free of charge at its Geelong Clinical School on Monday as part of G21’s Month of Action to Stop Violence Against Women. 110449 Picture: REG RYAN

‘UKE BEAUT’ SOUNDS FOR MATON - P13

Counselling service’s desperate plea:

PORT LADIES GROUP HAS A BALL - P17

Throw us a Lifeline

THE REGION’S Lifeline service is facing a financial crisis as rising wages, costs and new protocols undermine its ability to meet a growing demand for help. Lifeline Geelong has 40 telephone counsellors and another 60 staff working across five shops in Geelong, Drysdale and Colac. Despite a significant annual funding boost of $50,000 18 months ago, it has been forced to draw on $40,000 from its reserves to keep afloat this year - a turnaround of almost $100,000. Geelong Barwon region board chairman Joe Crosby said the local operation had been considered one of Lifeline’s best performers nationally.

right now there’s a lot of pressure.� Lifeline draws funding from State Government, Geelong’s Give Where You Live program, Geelong Community Foundation and from Lifeline’s shops. “But we’re cutting into our reserves,� Mr Crosby said. “Just 65 per cent of our income is coming from the shops, where it used to be 75 to 80 per cent. This reflects the retail costs we’re facing. “Other centres in NSW and around Australia of similar size have got the same problems. We have meetings going on looking at costs, how to do things better, but there’s major work we have to do to make the whole thing sustainable. “We’re trying to provide a better, more-professional service but it’s tough,

“In the last two to three years we’ve broken even but this year we’ve had to pull into reserves by about $40,000 to keep going,� Mr Crosby said. “Fair Work Australia has looked at all wages across the board in the charity sector and that’s had an impact. All sorts of costs have gone through the roof - rental fees in our shops, it’s cost us $20,000 just to get rid of rubbish.� Lifeline Geelong fields about 8500 calls for help a year, with staff giving referrals, advice or simply a sympathetic ear. Between five and 10 per cent of callers were deemed “at risk�, Mr Crosby said. “But they’ve been increasing a little bit. Loneliness, family relationships financial concerns, these all contribute and

Protocols to support our phone counsellors have all been ramped up and the costs associated with that.� Lifeline Geelong services are available 24 hours a day, providing advice on issues including suicide bereavement, financial pressure, stress and domestic violence. Mr Crosby said Lifeline Geelong was heavily involved in setting up parent support groups in the wake of Western Heights’ Secondary College’s multiple youth suicides in 2009. The current level of calls for help was approaching the 9000 a year that Lifeline experienced during the Pyramid crisis two decades ago, he said.

Rescue bid for WWII bomber

Since Shell’s announcement on the proposed sale of the Geelong Refinery in April we have worked hard to remain focused on safe and reliable fuels production. After safety, we have also made supporting our people and the sales process a very high priority. It will be some time before we hear whether Shell has been successful in agreeing terms with a suitable buyer. We don’t know if the sale process will be successful, but we are feeling quietly confident of success. We have seen a number of potential buyers participating in management sessions and site visits. We have given them insights into our people and culture on-site as well as insights into the support you and community leaders have given us.

OCEAN Grove diver Rod Knights wants to resurrect a World War II Wirraway aircraft from Lake Corangamite where it crashed more than 60 years ago. Mr Knights plans to extract the plane from 1.3 metres of mud and 1.5m of water, restore the plane to original condition and put it on public display, possibly at Ocean Grove. But first he has to negotiate a paperwork jungle with Heritage Victoria, the RAAF, Corangamite Shire Council and the region’s catchment management authority. The CAC Wirraway A20 714 crashed in 1950 during a lowlevel training exercise. A farmer rescued the pilot, who suffered minor injuries. Mr Knights became interested

CRASHED: The Wirraway wreck in Lake Corangamite. in raising the Wirraway after receding waters revealed the aircraft during the drought of 2005. “Under the motor is well preserved,” he told the Independent. “There are sort of two areas: under the mud and above the mud, which is badly deteriorated. But the plane has an internal

frame and I’ve done ultrasonic metal-testing and it’s come out quite well. “Originally, I was hoping to raise in October, last month, but the paperwork takes time,” Mr Knights said. “It might take 20 years. Every single nut and bolt needs to be checked and maybe replaced. “I have people helping with the scientific side of things, soil sampling, metal testing and the like. “Obviously, where things are too far gone, I’ll have to source original parts where I can or get them made.” Mr Knights said he worked as a professional commercial diver and salvage diver and had always maintained an interest in Australian aircraft.

Stress fears as coastal mortgage costs spiral SURF Coast and Borough of Queenscliffe have recorded some of Victoria’s biggest rises in monthly mortgage repayments, according to Australian Bureau of Statistics. The two coastal areas figured in the top five, with Surf Coast mortgages rising 48 per cent and Queenscliffe’s up 47 per cent since 2006. Surf Coast median monthly mortgage repayments of $1218 in 2006 rose to $1800 in 2011, up $582. Monthly repayments in Queenscliffe rose $471 from $1029 to $1500. Both rises outstripped the “large”

Australian average increase of 38.5 per cent, the bureau said. The Independent reported in recent weeks that home repossessions were up 50 per cent in Geelong’s northern suburbs despite historically lower interest rates. And a shortage of cheap rental properties in Geelong had raised a “red flag” for human service organisations as homelessness increased. The bureau’s director of rural and regional statistics, Lisa Conolly, said mortgage costs increased more than wages between 2006 and 2011. “The median weekly household income increased 20.2 per cent compared to an increase of 38.5 per

cent in mortgage repayments. “The median weekly household rent rose to $285 from $191 in 2006, an increase of 49 per cent. Ms Conolly said housing costs were often the largest regular expense for Australians, sucking up 18 per cent of average weekly incomes in 2011/2012. “It’s important for local communities to understand the changing costs of housing in their local area because it impacts on where people choose to live and the local service and infrastructure planning for a region.” SalvoConnect network director Lisa Dalla-Zuanna said mortgage

holders should heed financial-stress warning signs. “The best advice is to get some financial counselling when the mortgage gets high rather than think you can manage,” Ms Dalla-Zuanna said. Highly leveraged mortgages and increased credit card use were often signs of financial stress, she said. “If you find you’re using it without making repayments you’re going wrong. If you’re only making minimum repayments you’re getting nowhere. “That’s when you need to look at cutting back and getting advice. Budgeting is a skill and not everyone has it.”

AN INDENTED Head man drove more than four times over the blood-alcohol limit with children in the car, police have alleged. Victoria Police said the 37-year-old returned a preliminary reading of .23 per cent with three children in the back seat when officers apprehended him in Melbourne’s Hampton Park.

Council call STATE Government should dump Geelong’s council structure of 12 ward councillors, according to lobby group Committee for Geelong. The committee said it had “recommended a redesign” with a directly elected mayor and deputy, four ward and three regional councillors to help deliver a “big-picture” focus on council.

Rape claim POLICE are investigating allegations a senior Labor party figure raped of a teenager at Portarlington. The Australian newspaper has reported the teenager was allegedly assaulted during an overnight Young Labor camp in the 1980s.

Fort funded

Post offices join fight on parcels

THE Abbott Government has delivered on its predecessor’s promise of $60,550 to develop a tourism plan for Fort Queenscliff, MP Sarah Henderson has announced. The Member for Corangamite said the fort had “the potential to be a real tourism icon”, offsetting its declining use as a defence department facility.

By JOHN VAN KLAVEREN ABOUT a quarter of Geelong’s licensed post offices have joined a class action claiming underpayment for an “enormous” increase in parcel deliveries. Some of the local franchisees said the existing arrangements with Australia Post threatened their businesses. They declined to be indentified in the Independent because of contractual arrangements with Australia Post. But they backed the class action, which the Licensed Post Office Group initiated on behalf of 500 members over remuneration for parcel deliveries and decreasing ordinary mail volumes. Group spokesperson Angela Cramp, who runs post offices in northern New South Wales, said some franchisees faced bankruptcy. “Some are better able to manage the situation than others. I have three busy post offices and we are serving 1200 people a week and yet I can’t pay my staff. With the way Australia Post pays us, the busier you are, the more money you lose.” Ms Cramp said the main issue was an “enormous” increase in parcel deliveries for little extra income. Franchisees were dealing with parcels for six to eight hours a day for $20 or $40 more a week, she said. “Franchisees are subsidising Australia Post. They’re spending money on these mail-sorting machines that take longer to deliver the mail by a roundabout route and the money is coming out of the pockets of small business owners.” Ms Cramp said the class action was ready to launch but the group would give the new federal Coalition Government an opportunity to investigate the issue. Corangamite MP Sarah Henderson said she was concerned at the financial pressures on some franchisees. “Licensed post offices are small businesses and provide an important service as well as jobs to so many communities. Licenced post offices must be profitable to survive and prosper. “I attended a briefing with Australia Post this week. It’s clear many licenced post offices around the country are in trouble. “The recently announced senate inquiry will provide an important opportunity for the post office operators to give evidence and have their say.”

Driver nabbed

The Independent revealed earlier this month that major retailers and City Hall were at loggerheads over planning and development rules for the centre.

Mayor near GEELONG is set for a new mayor this weekend after ratepayers spent over $500,000 on a by-election to replace Keith Fagg.

MPs vow fight to retain wards By JOHN VAN KLAVEREN THE regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Labor MPs have vowed to fight any move to redraw Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s council ward system as part of a review of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s directly elected mayor model. Member for Bellarine Lisa Neville said including a debate about ward-versus-regional councillors would be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;distractionâ&#x20AC;?.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rolling that in together would be a shame and take attention away from the mayoral model debate,â&#x20AC;? Ms Neville said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The big issue is the mayoral model that has been set up. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already had one mayor resign with an expensive byelection without any change to the model. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any debate and review should be about the mayor and deputy mayor models.

should have been brought forward. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost a good man, a genuine bloke who wanted to do things and found he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. The mayor should have some power. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t State Government put a mechanism into place to prevent it happening again? Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s costing ratepayerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s money,â&#x20AC;? Mr Eren said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ratepayers are still confused about whether we have a model that will deliver for the community,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a year into council operations, the budget and business plan are set, so the mayor in reality is not able to deliver anything.â&#x20AC;? Member for Lara John Eren said the next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s review of the current model

Schoolies in warning on crim record

â&#x20AC;&#x153;That $500,000 could have been spent on the community.â&#x20AC;? Mr Eren said the failure to amend the model was â&#x20AC;&#x153;unfair on the new mayorâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clearly thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sense of frustration because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a token position with no real power. Even the deputy mayor has more power because at least theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re elected by their ward.â&#x20AC;?

By NOEL MURPHY EXTRA police patrols will be deployed across the Surf Coast in anticipation of a heavy influx of schoolies this weekend. Hot on the police radar over the next week will be alcohol-fuelled violence and anti-social behaviour. Victoria Policeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lisa Hardeman warned schoolies to refrain from activity that might earn a criminal record. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A criminal record stays with you for life and will most certainly affect your career â&#x20AC;&#x201C; donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let a moment of stupidity influence the rest of your life,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know that celebrating Schoolies Week is something these young people look forward to for a long time.â&#x20AC;? Inspector Hardeman said police would visit school leaversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; accommodation venues, including private houses, during Schoolies Week. Schoolies should respect the communities they visited and report any suspicious behaviour to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Preparation is the key to staying safe. Plan your day and night and plan a way back to your accommodation,â&#x20AC;? Insp Hardeman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ensure youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always with a group of friends, people you can rely on and people who you know are looking out for you. Insp Hardeman said more information about staying safe during Schoolies Week was available at youthcentral.vic.gov.au/ schoolies.

OUTSOURCED: Organiser Luke Cherry leads the protest outside Barwon Waterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ryrie St offices on Tuesday. Picture: REG RYAN

BW staff protest but â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;most to keep jobsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ANGRY Barwon Water outdoors staff have gathered outside the organisationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ryrie St offices to protest the outsourcing of their jobs. Australian Services Union (ASU) organiser Luke Cherry said Barwon Waterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to award a four-anda-half-year contract to Programmed Facility Maintenance affected about 60 workers. He described the decision as â&#x20AC;&#x153;privatisation by stealthâ&#x20AC;?. Mr Cherry said Barwon Water would save $380,000 a year, or $1.29 a customer, over the contract period. The decision was another blow to job security in the region, leaving staff uncertain about their futures and and feeling â&#x20AC;&#x153;undervalued, ignored and angryâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a huge blow for workers. For months Barwon Water has been telling us that information about this

process is confidential and that no decision has been made regarding outsourcing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This has left ASU members feeling disheartened and angry about the way theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been treated by a company where many have worked for most of their working lives,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Recently weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen a lot of private companies reducing their Geelong-based workforce and pulling out of the area. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Corporations like Barwon Water should be rock-solid during times like these, providing support to the community while offering a sanctuary of job security and model conditions.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Not once did management consult existing staff to try finding a way to achieve those savings without people losing their jobs, which shows they never had any intention of keeping these roles in-house,â&#x20AC;? Mr Cherry said.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We expect this change to have an impact on the services provided to Barwon Water customers in the Geelong region. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This essential service will now be run by a for-profit corporation instead of remaining in the public service sphere where it belongs.â&#x20AC;? Barwon Water managing director Joe Adamski said the change would deliver long-term cost savings through â&#x20AC;&#x153;progressive efficiency improvementsâ&#x20AC;?. Mr Adamski said the decision would save a â&#x20AC;&#x153;conservativeâ&#x20AC;? $1.7 million to 2018 but the saving was â&#x20AC;&#x153;likelyâ&#x20AC;? to be $700,000 a year compared to retaining the services in-house. A key factor in the boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision was Programmedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to take on â&#x20AC;&#x153;almost allâ&#x20AC;? existing employees, minimising job losses and retaining skills and experience, he said.

GEELONG region beaches are littered with thousands of dead muttonbirds while endangered hooded plovers struggle against humans and dogs to breed. The muttonbirds, or shorttailed shearwaters, have suffered from a food shortfall en route from the northern reaches of the Pacific rim, as dwindling hoodies numbers face further decline due primarily to unleashed dogs. Both face problems this breeding season: the muttonbirds, a month behind their normal schedule, need to refuel before nesting; the plovers, with perhaps a total two dozen between the Bellarine and Lorne, need protection from human activity. Naturalist Trevor Pescott told the Independent the muttonbird deaths were “quite extraordinary”. “It’s certainly the worst in the years I’ve been birdwatch-

ing. I’ve never seen so many in distressed condition and dying on the beaches. “They’re being blown in and getting into all sorts of places they wouldn’t normally be. I had one land in my garden in Newtown.” Mr Pescott said tidal and wind patterns could have contributed to the muttonbird difficulties and raised the possibility of further problems if changing weather patterns altered ocean surface temperatures in the future. “We get small numbers washed up about this time each year but this year it’s been quite extraordinary, the numbers have been huge, the birds seem just not able to get enough food.” Hooded plovers faced problems too as they struggled to maintain numbers that Mr Pescott said had fallen away from dozens to mere handfuls. “We have a couple of pairs between Point Lonsdale and Ocean

Grove, a couple of pairs between Barwon Heads and Torquay, and from Anglesea to Fairhaven. “We’d be lucky if we’ve got a couple dozen - they’re very scarce. “The decline is basically because of the way the beaches have been developed and used by people. There’s a direct conflict between people and the birds,” Mr Pescott said. “They were never in big numbers, just scattered pairs along the coast, but in the 1950s and ’60s it wasn’t uncommon to find 20 to 30 pairs. Now you’re lucky if you find more than a handful. “I can remember behind 13th Beach I saw 40 or more on one occasion. Their numbers have declined very much.” Geelong’s City Hall said signage regarding dog on-leash restrictions had been posted on beaches to help give young hoodies a better chance to survive.

prohibited,â&#x20AC;? the report said. Ward councillor Eddy Kontelj said the application was refused because the development posed an unacceptable risk to the health and amenity of nearby land-owners and residents. Cr Kontelj said the panel raised a number of issues with the applicant but failed to receive sufficient information. The issues included a buffer zone between the site and nearby residential zones, negative impact on the environment and on the amenity and character of the area. Cr Kontelj also questioned the existing-use rights. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will pursue that through

council and seek additional legal advice,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mr McGarigle said the panel â&#x20AC;&#x153;overstepped its boundariesâ&#x20AC;? when it based its decision on the site use rather than the associated buildings and works. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m disappointed as a ratepayer that council is wasting funds on this. When council goes against the advice of their planners it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long to get VCAT to overrule it.â&#x20AC;? Mr McGarigle said objectors or local MPs never contacted him to discuss the proposal. Mr McGarigle said his legal opinion was that a break in use did not constitute valid grounds to extinguish exiting-use rights.

CONCERN: Joan Lindros. creased aim is to burn 7460 hectares. In 2014/2015, the plan is to burn 9131ha and a massive 14,300ha the following year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are appalled. DEPI is approaching over 10 per cent of forest and heath to be burnt.â&#x20AC;? Ms Lindros said the environment council was also â&#x20AC;&#x153;exceedingly concernedâ&#x20AC;? at plans to burn 1400ha of the West Barwon catchment. DEPI Otway district manager

David Rourke said the highest priority for the planned burning was to reduce the risks to human life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Planned burning reduces the damage caused by bushfires by slowing them down and making them less intense,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By having a well-managed planned burn program undertaken over a period of years in the Otways, DEPI aims to also provide for more diverse ecosystems rather than a single-age forest generated by a large and intense bushfire across the landscape. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In addition to priorities for reducing the risk to human life, DEPI aims to provide for maintaining ecosystems and managing our flora and fauna. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the Otways, DEPI has an extensive biodiversity monitoring program, Otway HawkEye, to measure and model the impacts of planned burning and bushfires on the environment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Key values are taken into account in the planning of all burns.â&#x20AC;?

Otway conservation â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;up in smokeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; STAFF cuts, feral animals, weeds, trail bikes and planned burns are threatening years of Otways conservation work, according to Geelong Environment Council. President Joan Lindros was â&#x20AC;&#x153;appalledâ&#x20AC;? at Department of Environment and Primary Industriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; planned fires, demanding the exclusion of rainforest, ash and wet sclerophyll forests because they were â&#x20AC;&#x153;ecologically unsustainable for burningâ&#x20AC;?.

THE fight over a chemical storage facility in North Geelong is set to continue at Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT). A Geelong council planning panel this week refused Teleta Nomineesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; permit application for building works on the Roseneath St site. Teleta director Ryan McGarigle said he was disappointed at the outcome â&#x20AC;&#x153;which will take VCAT 30 seconds to understand and overturnâ&#x20AC;?. The proposal attracted 175 objections to the landâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s use for chemical storage and blending. A report to the panel said the applicant provided evidence the site â&#x20AC;&#x153;enjoyed existing-use rightsâ&#x20AC;? and that the panel could only hear the permit application for associated buildings and works. Officers had recommended approving the application subject to conditions on lighting, fencing, a demolition plan, landscaping, drainage, access and car parking. The report said the site had a â&#x20AC;&#x153;long industrial zoning historyâ&#x20AC;? but the area was unusual because of a high number of nearby â&#x20AC;&#x153;sensitive land usesâ&#x20AC;?, or dwellings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The majority of the dwellings currently located within the industrial zones enjoy existinguse rights as a dwelling under the current provisions would now be

EXPRESSION OF INTEREST-2014 SIMONDS STADIUM HIGH PERFORMANCE CENTRE (GYM) SCHOLARSHIP

By JOHN VAN KLAVEREN CONTRACT staff at CSIRO departments around Geelong are in limbo while awaiting word on a job freeze, according to the organisation’s staff association. Secretary Sam Popovski said the recruitment freeze could cost the jobs of almost 1400 term and casual CSIRO employees nationally. The non-renewal of contracts could jeopardise vital CSIRO research at its three major sites around Geelong, he warned. “Which areas of research will be impacted and how? Which CSIRO site locations will be impacted and how? “Nowhere is immune or protected. These are all questions we’re seeking clarification from CSIRO management.” The association believed the recruitment freeze was part of a Coalition Government election promise to cut 12,000 public service jobs. Mr Popovski said the association was awaiting a formal response to its requested clarification from management. CSIRO sites in the region include Materials Science and Manufacturing, Textile Consulting Services and the Animal Health Laboratories. “We’re in discussions with management concerning the likely impact

Expressions of interest are invited from elite athletes to apply for a 2014 Simonds Stadium High Performance Centre (gym) Scholarship. The Simonds Stadium High Performance Centre (gym) Scholarship is designed to enable individual athletes to train in an elite strength and conditioning environment to assist in meeting their full sporting potential. The scholarship period is for 12 months from January 2014 to December 2014. To apply for a Scholarship Application Pack, athletes must fulfil eligibility criteria: • Athletes must be Australian Citizens;

• Athletes must reside in the Barwon Region;

• Athletes must compete and perform as an Australian Citizen at international or national level; • Athletes must be over 16 years of age;

• Have their own coach, to set a program. Applications are now open and close by 5.00pm Friday 29 November. For further information and to obtain a copy of the 2014 Scholarship Application Pack, please visit the Barwon Sports Academy High Performance Centre website www.barwonsportsacademy.org.au and download the application form or contact Alison Vanderputt at Barwon Sports Academy, Sports House - Simonds Stadium 370 Moorabool Street, Geelong or call on 5224 9130.

of the cuts however significant questions as to the size and duration of the recruitment freeze remain unanswered,” Mr Popovski said. “If the freeze continues beyond the next few months, all 1400 term and casual employees could be affected. Many CSIRO employees face a bleak future as term contracts approach their conclusion. “We’re calling on management to end the uncertainty and clarify the length of the restriction and how many employees will be affected.” Mr Popovski said the latest cuts followed the loss of more than 200 positions earlier this year, with management citing pressure on external revenues and private sector investment. The latest cuts would harm innovation, he warned. CSIRO chief Dr Megan Clark confirmed a “temporary suspension of external recruitment and contract renewals”. Dr Clark said the number of staff quoted as under uncertainty was incorrect and recruitment for “critical” positions could occur “with approval”. “We recognise that this temporary suspension will result in a higher than usual number of non-renewals. “CSIRO recruits casual staff primarily for seasonal work or for covering absences of administrative support staff.”

The industry awards recognise and reward individuals and businesses that have excelled in their respective field over the past 12 months. The award follows a significant 18 months of growth for Drysdale Home Timber and Hardware following the business transition to the Home Timber and Hardware group in early 2012. Drysdale Home Timber and Hardware store owners Grant and Kerri Maher say they were honoured to receive such an industry accolade. “Winning this award is a testament to the tremendous team we have working here in the store. “We pride ourselves on our excellent customer service and the great culture we have in our store plays a vital role in the success of our business. “At the end of the day, it’s our customers who are the ultimate judge of what we do and we’re grateful for the support they’ve shown us over the last 18 months under the Home Timber and Hardware brand and the previous nine years trading as an independent non-group store. “This award will spur us on to serve them even better.” The HAVT awards are

judged on each nominee’s performance in core business areas including delivering exceptional customer service, innovation and general business strategy. Award categories include small, medium and large retail stores and trade store. The small retail category had 10 nominees competing for the title. Home Timber and Hardware regional manager Victoria and Tasmania Andrew Toomey says the annual awards recognise retailers helping pave the way for the future of Victoria’s hardware sector. “We congratulate Drysdale Home Timber and Hardware on this industry acknowledgement. Seeing our stores feature very strongly in the HAVT awards highlights Home Timber & Hardware’s credentials and success in delivering exceptional service and quality products to customers. “The service and dedication displayed by Drysdale Home Timber and Hardware epitomises our Go Where the Tradies Go motto. “It’s great to see a crosssection of our stores represented in each award category.

Labor’s $7.5m fund promise By JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A LABOR state government would pump an extra $7.5 million into a Geelong Region Innovation and Investment Fund (GRIIF), according to Lara MP John Eren. Mr Eren accused Premier Denis Napthine in parliament of failing to develop a Geelong jobs plan. Mr Eren told parliament the ALP would back new business opportunities and ideas and support the region’s key drivers of growth by investing $12 million into the GRIIF. “Support from government is particularly important in new and emerging sectors such as advanced manufacturing, where even small amounts of support can be the difference between

success and failure,” Mr Eren said. Other initiatives in the ALP plan included $3 million to support a new manufacturing hub, $1 million for Victorian Transport Association’s logistics cadetship program and $4 million to undertake a detailed corridor planning study to extend Geelong’s ring road to the Bellarine Peninsula. “Given the recent announcement from Qantas that it will be axing 300 jobs from Avalon Airport, the Geelong community requires a government that will take action,” Mr Eren said. He accused State Government of “dropping the ball” on Geelong. “With no real leadership Geelong has been left without a government to help it through tough times”.

A spokesperson for Dr Napthine claimed Labor’s plan amounted to a cut of $7 million from the GRIIF by wasting time and money on a study State Government had already completed. “Labor’s so-called plan is more about hot air than it is about delivering real benefits for the Geelong economy.” The spokesman said state government had generated 2147 jobs through a range of strategic projects. These included Epworth Hospital, Cotton On headquarters, NDIS headquarters, Geelong Hospital, Waurn Ponds Community Hospital and the recently announced Karingal Kommercial and St Mary’s redevelopment projects.

Speaker should resign, says ex-MP By NOEL MURPHY BESIEGED Victorian parliamentary speaker Ken Smith should resign his post in Victoria’s Legislative Assembly, according to a Grovedale resident who served as the president of the upper house “The whole thing is to do the right thing, he should tender his resignation,” Rod Mackenzie said. “For any presiding officer in a position where there are doubts they have support, the honourable thing to do would be to get him to ask the leader of the government in the house for a vote

of confidence in the speaker. “The speaker himself would ask him to do that and if the majority asked him to stay then he’d stay and, if not, resign. “The other thing is he could simply resign. That’s the honourable thing to do. “It’s fairly clear he hasn’t got the support of the house and is in an untenable position.” Mr Mackenzie, a former minister in the Cain government, said it was disappointing Mr Smith adjourned parliament for 10 days “apparently in the vain hope confidence in him would somehow return”.

“A successful parliament relies so much on the attributes of its speaker. “Their impartiality is of the utmost importance as is their fairness and their full understanding in their role as a presiding officer in the Westminster style of parliament. These factors seem lacking in the current speaker.” Mr Mackenzie said the “aggressive manner” of the Labor opposition did “nothing to enhance the public’s view of correct parliamentary behaviour, which is already not held in very high regard”.

Otways timber beaut for ukes

25% OFF The Entire Range ge

UKE BEAUT: Pat Evans with a pair of ukeleles made from Otways blackwood. “My observation is it gives people a chance to get together and play music in a community setting. Initially it’s really accessible price-wise and those who take it more seriously can invest in a really good instrument later. “It’s not too hard on the fingers, it doesn’t have the big stretches like a guitar, and it’s at

the same intervals as a guitar. Basically, you just chop the two bass strings off a guitar.” The blackwood Maton uses is from the acacia family, the same as koa timber used in traditional Hawaiian ukuleles. Mr Evans said Maton was about to release a longer-necked tenor version soon.

BLACKWOOD timber from the Otways is driving a ukulele revolution by Australia’s leading guitar maker. And at the helm with the Maton Guitars uke-beaut campaign is Geelong luthier/musician Pat Evans. Maton’s manager of production and projects, Mr Evans has developed, designed, built the prototypes and set up production for the instruments. While most people think of ukuleles as Hawaiian, which they certainly are, they originated in Portugal, he says. “They arrived on ships taking migrant workers to Hawaii in the 1870s, the locals loved them,” Mr Evans told the Independent. “The instrument has a couple names. One is the machete but it’s definitely Portuguese.” Mr Evans said woodcutter Murray Kidman sourced the blackwood timber for Maton for the ukuleles from across the Otway ranges. “He has special permission to cut individual trees, which he selects for tone and chops up on the forest floor - it’s mostly for our guitars but also for our ukuleles.”. Ukuleles have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in recent years, a phenomenon Mr Evans attributed to the instrument’s accessibility price-wise and ease to learn. “I think it’s largely to do with community,” he said.

Council hands over ‘link’ role

SHOES & HANDBAGS

By JOHN VAN KLAVEREN



GEELONG’S council has conceded planning authority on Avalon Airport’s rail link to State Government after earlier insisting it remain the responsible authority. But council resolved to remain as the planning authority for the airport site. Planning portfolio holder Rod Macdonald said the reservation of land to provide a rail link to Avalon Airport was a key component of the Victorian Government’s transport planning program. “As the Avalon Airport rail link is a State Government project it makes sense to have the Minister for Planning running the planning scheme amendment

process,” Cr Macdonald said. A project team from the transport department has been investigating possible routes for a rail corridor from Avalon Airport to the Melbourne-Geelong rail line. “Council’s expectation is that there would be further community consultation including a full public exhibition process typical of a planning scheme amendment. “Council is very supportive of a rail link to Avalon Airport but we’ll be careful to ensure there’s suitable consultation and opportunity to comment, for all residents, especially those living in the vicinity of the proposed alignment options.” Cr Macdonald said council would retain its ongoing role as the

responsible authority for the airport land itself, zoned special use. In July council said it would make a submission to an Avalon Airport master plan - including the rail link - reinforcing the need to remain the responsible authority for issuing planning permits. In a media release at the time council said it did not support the airport’s plan to assume the role of responsible authority for issuing planning permits. “It’s important that council remains as an independent authority responsible for issuing planning permits to ensure the community has an appropriate avenue to comment on planning permit applications and access to an appeal process.”

Festival brews a dream for homies A HOME brewer will realise their dream of going commercial at next year’s Great Australian Beer Festival in Geelong, the event’s organiser has announced. Michael Ward said the winner of the festival’s Home Brew Competition would have their beer produced “on a larger scale” under Odyssey Tavern & Brewery’s Matt Cuthbert. The competition was a chance for amateurs to “put their beermaking skills to the test”, Mr Ward said. “We just wanted to do something a bit different to show we support home brewers.

AUSTRALIA has always spied on Indonesia – and vice versa, says a Geelong academic.

“Sometimes we have uneven teams because people can please themselves as to which team they go on,” Marie explained. “It’s a great way to start a week. Every time we leave we all feel on top of the world. “One lady has bad arthritis and she still manages to come along and join in. “I’m 80 and I think I should give it away but then I realise I can’t because it’s so much fun. I can’t jump anymore but age doesn’t matter. “No one says ‘Why didn’t you get that one’. We have one younger lady – she’s only 65 – she’s like a flea in a bottle, here there and everywhere – she always gets the balls. “We might get the odd ache and pain but what’s the good of sitting in a chair? We need to be active.” The group takes a break for the Christmas period, marked by a break-up lunch, with each bringing a plate and their sense of humour. “If we went to a venue we’d be thrown out because of the way we laugh and carry on,” Marie said. Anyone interested in witnessing the antics is welcome to head to the corner of Fisher and Newcombe Sts, Portarlington, on a Monday morning and simply follow the sounds of the screams.

THEY don’t care who wins or loses – in fact, they don’t even keep score. It’s all part of a group of Bellarine ladies growing old disgracefully but doing it within the confines of Portarlington Uniting Church’s hall. It’s nominally a game of volleyball and the group does go by the name Portarlington Volleyball Group, concedes long-time player Marie Bedford. But that’s about where the similarity ends, with the volleyball replaced by an inflatable beach-ball, a la the once-infamous Bay 13 at the MGC. “Yes, we’ve made up one or two rules that aren’t in the volleyball rulebook. We don’t blink if someone hits the ball twice instead of once or if they miss it altogether,” Marie laughed. “We shout, we scream, we laugh, it’s total fun, so we don’t let things like the score or who served last get in the way. “We’re a lot of mad ones but it’s fun being mad on a Monday morning and it sets the tone for the week. “Last week was the first time for ages I remembered the score. It’s meant to be whoever gets to 21 wins but we’ve had games where one side hasn’t won a single point but had just as much fun.” The ladies gather at 8.45am Mondays for a 15-minute chat – then play for about an hour. “We used to start at 9am but by the time we finished chatting there wasn’t enough time left for a game”, Marie admitted. No one really runs the group, Marie said. Someone always volunteered to collect the 50cent fee and organise the ball and net.

Letters Blast this chemical plan OK, I GET IT, the chemical storage project at 1-39 Roseneath St, North Geelong is legal (Independent, 18 October). This is not the issue. Many things are legal but what guarantees do we have that this chemical plant will not contaminate the neighborhood? Why isn’t the EPA stepping in to settle the disquiet among residents around this development? Sustainable economic development must provide for protection of human health and the environment. Neither council, residents nor lawyers involved with the prospective development of this polluted site have the qualifications to evaluate the safety of this development. The EPA does. This is a health and safety matter and also an environmental issue, as demonstrated by drainage of rainwater through this highly polluted area and into the water table and into the bay. When I moved here a year and a half ago I was assured the chemical storage days were over and the site would be redeveloped as a truck-parking depot. Next I was told it would be a recycling plant and now this chemical plant. A map with Corio to the north and Belmont to the south will show North Geelong Railway Station in the middle, 400m, as the crow flies, from the chemical site, with the Arena next door. My residence is 40m from disaster if an explosion occurred. Without a blast wall, I would be dead in my bed. Karl Haase North Geelong

Labor’s freeway folly LABOR Member for Bellarine Lisa Neville is seeking to turn Baanip Blvd, formerly section 4C of the Geelong ring road, into a six-lane freeway. The Coalition Government has been working hard with VicRoads to ensure proper consultation with local residents has occurred, especially to reduce the impact of noise and to the environment. The Government delivered on its election commitment to create an expert advisory panel, which provided a report of recommendations regarding Baanip Blvd. This report was then opened for submission and received wide cooperation by local community groups, City of Greater Geelong, Surf Coast Shire,

Barking mad over dog noise at night A NATURAL wariness ensues when bringing up the touchy subject of barking dogs but Worker’s bucket in the 8 November Independent featured some comments that need to be addressed. Worker’s attitude and tone made it apparent they care very little about their neighbours’ concerns. For many people, a dog barking loudly in the night while they’re trying to sleep is the very definition of annoying. We all have certain sounds we cannot stand while trying to sleep, so imagine,

TERRIER TERROR: Barking dogs have become a hot topic among Independent readers. whatever your bugbear, hearing barking every night, then maybe you could begin to understand why people complain about barking dogs. Obviously there is no magi-

VicRoads, Public Transport Users Association and developers among others. The panel’s report was widely accepted by all parties, including residents from Grovedale, Waurn Ponds and Marshall. At no time during this process did Labor or Ms Neville take part. Ms Neville’s actions are concerning and show the lack of consideration and consultation by Labor to the residents of Grovedale. Ms Neville and Labor’s statements are in stark contrast to the Government’s commitment of $90.4 million to construct a 4.5km, two-lane boulevard-style arterial road between Anglesea Rd and Surf Coast Hwy. As part of this commitment, the Government will ensure that Baanip Blvd remains an arterial road with intersections feeding into Armstrong Creek to reduce the stress on local roads, with appropriate noise attenuations to reduce the impact of noise and with suitable landscaping and shared paths for residents. Andrew Katos MP Member for South Barwon

Birds blown away WHILE we express our discontent at the interminable gales sweeping the coast, spare a thought for

cal solution to silencing incessantly barking dogs but owners need to take some degree of responsibility and at least attempt to implement strategies to decrease the frequency and duration of such episodes. Then everyone - dog owner and neighbours alike - can have a better chance of getting along. Everyone has a job, even those kept awake by barking dogs, so to use that as some form of justification for a lack of accountability is very slack. S Bridson Herne Hill

the shearwater, which breeds in the sand dunes. With hungry chicks in the burrow, the shearwater is forced to sea to find food. The raging wind saps energy and, exhausted, the shearwater falls into the maelstrom that is the sea to drown. Fifty of them, one every metre or so, adorned the high tide line on Torquay’s Surf Beach on a recent morning. How many more reposed on other beaches? Add to this the chicks that are left to starve in the burrows and we have a major tragedy quietly playing itself out on our beaches. Spencer Leighton Torquay

RSL community asset ON REMEMBRANCE Day the ABC reported that Barwon Heads RSL was up for sale. Proceeds from the sale should be put back into the Barwon Heads community. Just after World War II the people of Barwon Heads banded together to raise money to buy and house returned service men and women in their own club. It took some time but it eventually happened. A committee was formed that become the trustee

of the deeds and the property. The trustees successfully ran the club until nine or 10 years ago. The trustees were all World War II diggers and began to die off. They then sought Vietnam veterans to take over, after which the property deeds and all were handed to the RSL. I disagreed with this but my advice was ignored. The money from the sale of the Barwon Heads RSL should be reinvested within the community or the property used by the community. Bob Thompson Ocean Grove

Redevelopment windfall I WAS pleased to recently join Premier Denis Napthine MP, Housing Minister Wendy Lovell and Member for South Barwon Andrew Katos in Geelong for the announcement of a $7.36 million package to facilitate a $65 million redevelopment of a key site in Geelong’s CBD. The redevelopment of the former St Mary’s school site will be undertaken by Common Equity Housing Limited and will include a mix of 193 apartments, comprising private and social housing, and other community facilities. The $7.36 million contribution from the Coalition Government includes more than $3 million toward a $5.4 million refurbishment of the heritagelisted St Mary’s Hall. The historic hall will include a café, plaza and a new regional medical library that will be owned and managed by Barwon Health, which will contribute $2.4 million to this project. The St Mary’s school site is a major redevelopment that will help revitalise Geelong’s CBD with increased residential living and improved community and health services. This redevelopment is a significant project for Geelong and will provide a major economic boost to the city. The project will create 100 jobs during construction and on completion will maintain 50 full-time ongoing jobs. I congratulate the Napthine Government for its substantial investment in the St Mary’s school redevelopment, a project that will increase accommodation in Geelong’s CBD and provide Barwon Health family and medical specialist accommodation as well as an important regional medical library.

Birds set to land in city By MICHELLE HERBISON

album March Fires became the band’s first to debut at number one on the National ARIA Album Chart earlier this year, spawning singles Lanterns, This Fire and When The Night Falls Quiet. “The album is a lot different to what we’ve done in the past,” Berney said. “We’ve focused on a cerebral listen; it’s an ambient record trying to achieve a wider sound.” The band was ready to move on from the masculine rock of previous albums and toward “really chasing beauty”, Berney explained. Birds of Tokyo aimed to challenge themselves artistically with each new record, throwing unexpected material to fans and often polarising audiences, he said. “It’s just a result of what you do when, as artists you’re always trying to explore new ways to create emotions in yourselves. “Some people understand it and other people get really frustrated because it doesn’t sound like before but all you have in the end is how you react to your own art and hope that’s a universal emotion that other people will feel.” Birds of Tokyo plays Geelong’s Wool Exchange on 5 December.

THE members of Perth rock band Birds of Tokyo felt lucky their stage was among Fremantle fans when they performed from the grandstands of this year’s AFL Grand Final. Bassist Ian Berney told the Independent everyone in the band was cheering on Freo except drummer Adam Weston, a passionate Magpies supporter. “He’d even been on national TV tipping Hawthorn to win by three or four goals, so there was a little incentive for him to prove his AFL knowledge,” Berney recalled. “So many people from home were passionate about it. On the day I was a full-blooded Fremantle fan but the poor guys didn’t have a good day.” Berney admitted the six-minute gig was a “hold-your-breath-and-getthrough-it” experience. “We tried hard to energise the people around us because we knew you’ve got all these big AFL supporters who really don’t care about your rock band – they just want you to finish so they can watch their sports team. “We walked off and were just really buzzed from the whole thing.” Birds of Tokyo achieved a “new feeling of success” when fourth studio

A DIVERSE variety of performance artists will converge on a central Geelong bar this weekend to launch a call for participation in a city arts festival. Organisers said submissions to FIGMENT Geelong 2014 in March would open at Beav’s Bar on Sunday afternoon. The event wanted artists to submit projects “in a wide variety of categories”, ranging from interactive illustrations to games and costuming. The organisers said Sunday’s launch would feature cabaret performer Elena Gabrielle, Embellyish Belly Dancing, Deakin Improv Theatre and Codie the Amazing’s Recycled Circus. The launch would also be a “come-and-try” event with workshops and a “lip sync battle”.

TS HA W SWEET DREAMS: Get set for the sounds of The Eurythmics in one half of the show at the Sphinx next month. bience and help people reconnect with that good feeling that the music evokes,” Mac said. “We try to be in character in a sense, trying to express the music in a way we feel is relevant to people connecting with it.” The band “really rocked it up” by adapting from both Eurythmics’ electronic recordings and live versions of their songs, which tended to feature a full band, Mac explained. They found that people from all generations related to Fleetwood Mac’s music.

“Whenever you play a Fleetwood Mac song people just get up and love it. Don’t Stop is such a feel-good song and it’s got that real sing-along vibe,” Mac said. The challenge was deciding which songs to leave out of the two one-hour long shows. Since its inception last year, the Melbourne-based group enjoyed success in various parts of the country, including a “fabulous” trip to the Northern Territory and Arnhem Land, Mac said. The Sphinx performance will be the group’s first trip to Geelong with this particular act.

SEXUALLY EXPLICIT ENTERTAINMENT MAY OFFEND

AUDIENCE commendations and re-bookings at nearly every venue are fast proving the success of a double-tribute show to Fleetwood Mac and Eurythmics. Musician Annie Mac and her band initially questioned their decision to pair the two bands’ music in one evening of performance. “But we found, surprisingly, a lot of people tell us they came to see one or the other of the shows but didn’t realise how much they loved the other band,” Mac said. Rhiannon, the Australia Fleetwood Mac show and Oz Eurythmics will visit North Geelong’s Sphinx Hotel on 14 December for an evening of ’80s flashbacks and dance-floor frivolity. The five-piece band features two female vocalists backed up by guitar, bass and drums. “Everyone in the band sings, so we’ve got four-part harmonies. We just have fun and love the music so we try to convey that to the audiences,” Mac explained. The band swapped costumes between playing the Fleetwood Mac material and paying tribute to Eurythmics but they were too busy pumping out the hits to actively impersonate either artist. “The costumes, lighting and that are there to enhance the am-

It also has morning and afternoon tea and a great selection of cakes and slices. Try its Devonshire tea or a muffin and coffee for just $5.90. Whether it’s eggs Florentine, muesli or bacon and eggs, an omelette, daily roasts or a Caesar salad, Soft Sands has it all for the hungry customer – with quality and a smile. And first-rate coffee, of course. “We’re upstairs in the Food Court,” supervisor Kristy Anderson says. “We do a full brekkie and lunch until three every day. “We do a really big breakfast – The Big Brekkie – with bacon, tomato, hash browns, mushrooms, sausages and eggs on toast is our most popular dish. There’s muesli too, with fruit and yoghurt. “We have eggs Benedict, eggs Florentine, raisin toast, grain breads, all your different jams and spreads – Vegemite, peanut butter, there’s heaps of them.

“One lady who comes in, her favourite is mushrooms and Vegemite on toast.” Soft Sands Café’s lunch menu is enough to satisfy any growling stomach with a mouth-watering array of salads, roasts, sandwiches, open grills, parmis, pasta dishes, risotto and much more, including a daily soup special. “We do lots for lunch. We do roast meals - pork, beef and lamb -- and we’ve got parmis too,” Kristy says. “We do a few different salads warm chicken salad, Greek salad, Caesar salad. We can do garden salads – whatever people want.” Soft Sands is best known for its freshly-made sandwiches., “We make all our sandwiches to order and there is lots to choose from,” Kristy says. Soft Sands Café open 8.30am to 5.30pm daily and to 9pm Fridays at the escalator west end of Westfield’s first level food court. The cafe caters for gluten-free customers. Bookings are available by phoning 5222 1110.

DR CLEAN Air’s Matt McMahon is alarmed about the number of house fires last year caused by neglected evaporative coolers. Roof-top evaporative coolers have large filter pads that can easily burn, spreading fire from the roof. “Every winter we’re told about the dangers of heaters causing fires but we don’t hear about air-conditioners, which pose just as much threat,” Mr McMahon says. “Evaporative coolers should be serviced yearly to ensure they run correctly. “Depending on water quality and local conditions, filter pads will eventually need to be replaced. Replacing them improves the efficiency and performance of coolers. “Failure to replace filters can lead to water passing through into ducting or causing electrical damage, leading to expensive damage and repairs.” With summer fast approaching and experts predicting one of Australia’s hottest years on record, Mr McMahon says many households will turn their evaporative coolers on for the first time. “It’s important safety precautions are followed to prevent the cause of fire.” CFA’s Alan Hewson warns that something as insignificant as a dirty air-conditioner has “potential to destroy a whole house”.

New Homes&Land

Green award for Warralily WARRALILY is the first development in Geelong to receive EnviroDevelopment certification, recognising sustainability credentials of developments around Australia. The certification, presented by Environment and Climate Change Minister Ryan Smith and Urban Development Institute of Australia Victorian executive director Tony De Domenico, celebrates Warralily’s commitment to delivering an environmentally sensitive community on 386Ha green field site with Armstrong Creek as its centrepiece. Warralily’s Mark Whinfield says the certification resulted from Warralily’s focus on protecting, improving and creating ecological sustainability while delivering a distinctive sense of place for the emerging community. EnviroDevelopment was established in 2006 to offer independent certification across a broad spectrum of environmental and community sustainability issues. The standards are set higher than usual practice and have undergone rigorous scrutiny by government, community-based organisations and the scientific community to recognise developments achieving sustainability excellence.

“The EnviroDevelopment certification demonstrates to residents and the broader community that Warralily is doing the right thing by the environment while delivering the best of urban living in a perfect coastal location,” Mr Whinfield says. EnviroDevelopment spokesperson Ricki Hersburgh says Australia’s decline in biodiversity over the past 200 years has made environmentally responsible development important to preservation efforts. “There’s tremendous advantage in Warralily being a master-

planned development as environmental issues were addressed in the conceptual stages, resulting in reduced environmental impacts and improved environmental performance. “Warralily is to be commended on its achievement, which places it as the latest development out of only 72 Australia-wide to become an EnviroDevelopment.” Warralily residents have also embraced sustainability, taking an active role in establishing a Friends of Armstrong Creek group and participating in construction of a no-dig herb garden.

THE smart South Korean car makers look to Europe for inspiration on all aspects of car design and handling, and the newly revised Hyundai ix35 is an excellent example of the advantages of doing so. Times are still tough in the European car industry and the research and development money for new models is tight. So it makes sense to put the money into the important areas of exhaust emission reductions and increasing driving pleasure, rather than in making major appearance changes in a big facelift. The Europeans are just like the Aussies in wanting a responsive car. Or a responsive SUV, because the great majority of SUVs aren’t bought to cross deserts and tackle wild bush tracks, instead they are cars. They appeal because of their ability to carry loads and provide a high driving position. They also make for easier entry and exit to the cabin for those who aren’t as young as they used to be. Hyundai ix35 Series II is now powered by direct-injection petrol engines. A 2.0-litre and 2.4-litre are offered, both give more performance then the units of the same size that they replace. At the same time fuel use and CO2 output have been lowered. The 2.0-litre GDI (Gasoline Direct Injection) delivers 122 kW and a handy 205Nm of torque. The torque is nicely spread and makes for easy driving. The 2.4-litre has 136 kW of power, top torque is 240 Nm and we found it impressive in real world driving as it makes for ex-

There are fewer changes in the 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine that’s available in the ix35 Elite and Highlander than there are in the petrol powerplants. It puts out up to 135 kW of power, with a strong 392 Nm of torque. The budget for the styling department wasn’t huge. Nevertheless, the new ix35 Series II now has projector headlights and LED driving lights. The lights are slightly squarer in their shapes and have dark borders as a styling feature. There are new designs of alloy wheels. Inside the Hyundai SUV, there is new seat upholstery on the entry-level ix35 Active. The Elite and Highlander have new

By MURRAY HUBBARD TOYOTA Australia has launched a mid-life upgrade of its top-selling Land Cruiser model. There are significant changes to the exterior and interior of the Prado, as well as improvements to seating access, handling, suspension and 4WD systems. As part of the revamp, Toyota has dropped the three-door Prado. Toyota has increased the forward folding angle of the second row seats by more than 12 per cent which has created an easier entry and exit for the third row occupants. Prado now has four models: GX, a five-seater with optional seven seats, the seven-seat GXL and VX, and top of the range Kakadu. Traditionally GX is favoured by fleet buyers such as Australia’s mining industry. The volume seller in the range is the GXL which has a strong following with private buyers and accounts for around 70 per cent of Prado sales. VX and Kakadu appeal to luxury buyers and are specified accordingly. Prices start from $55,990 for the GX rising to $91,590 for Kakadu. The Prado GX and GXL are distinctly different vehicles from the VX and Kakadu with different suspensions and 4WD systems. The towing rate stays at 2500kg. Engines remain the same with the 202 kW 4.0-litre petrol, and 127 kW/410 Nm 3.0-litre turbo-diesel. The Prado GX and GXL come standard with a six-speed manual transmission and offer an optional five-speed sequential auto. Prado VX and Kakadu come standard with the automatic transmission. Fuel consumption is officially rated at 8.5 litres per 100 km from the diesel and 11.5 L/100 km from the petrol. The latest Toyota Prado has a bolder front, courtesy of a five-bar grille atop an oversized bumper. The grille stands out because the fitting has no base with the five bars embedded on the top of the bumper. Prado VX and Kakadu get LED headlights and daytime running lights. The tail light clusters have also been re-designed. The Prado GX and GXL models get 17-inch, six-spoke alloy wheels while VX and Kakadu get 18-inch 12-spoke alloys. There is no change to the vital statistics of size or the off-road handling with the turning circle remaining at 11.6 metres while the approach, departure and ramp over angles are also untouched. Prado has a revised interior with the centre stacker having a new audio panel above the 7-inch full colour screen that shows the reversing camera images. There’s satellite navigation on VX and Kakadu. Prado GX gets manual

50 YEARS OF CONTINUOUS TRADING IN GEELONG 02 volvo v70 WaGoN air conditioning while the others have dual-zone air conditioning. Australia’s grey-nomad community will be pleased with the addition of trailer sway control which assists the driver if a towed vehicle such as a caravan becomes unsettled. Prado has seven airbags, stability and traction control, an emergency brake signal that automatically flashes the stop lights to warn other motorists and a rear view camera. While the previous model Kakadu had a system that offered off-road settings of rock, mogul, loose rock and mud and sand, the system now has a fifth setting - rock and dirt. This gives more traction control on slippery rocks when ascending hills. This system works only in low range and the driver simply switches between modes with the selected mode being shown in the instrument cluster on a new 4.2-inch colour information display between the speedo and tachometer. Prado Kakadu has a forward looking wide angle camera lens with images showing on the 7-inch screen that gives a front-ofbonnet view of what’s ahead. VX and Kakadu models use a different Australian-developed suspension system than GX and GXL. Toyota purchased the rights to use the Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System from a Western Australia company. This new model has an improved version of the technology which benefits handling stability and ride comfort with smoother front-rear weight transfer during cornering. The system enables the stabiliser bars to loosen for off-road work giving longer wheel articulation and then tightens the bars for smoother turning on-road. Although the Prado GX and GXL have different suspension set ups to VX and Kakadu the differences are only marked when at the extremes: in difficult off-road conditions and cornering on-road. In ‘normal’ driving both systems cope well with the hefty weight of Prado - the lightest variant is 2205 kg while Kakadu tips the scales at 2435 kg. On road, the Kakadu is smoother around the bends than the GXL and seems to sit flatter. Model range From GX 3.0-litre turbo-diesel fiveseat 4WD wagon: $55,990 (manual), $58,690 (automatic) to Kakadu 3.0-litre turbo-diesel seven-seat 4WD wagon: $92,590 (automatic)

APPROVED REMOVALISTS

0455 167 948 A DISCOUNTED mowing/garden service for Geelong seniors has been set up by SCS Mowing. Aimed squarely at providing a realistic, affordable service, SCS Mowing has cut its rates for seniors and also eased the pressure on clients to have their lawn and garden maintained any more frequently than they wish. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We understand how hard things can be for seniors,â&#x20AC;? says Andrew, of SCS Mowing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not easy to afford everything, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why we want to look after them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some services get quite adamant that they cut seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lawns every two weeks. With SCS, seniors can pay less and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll only come every three weeks.â&#x20AC;? SCS Mowing doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just mow lawns. It cuts and prunes trees and shrubs, trims gardens, removes rubbish, does odd jobs, cleans windows and more. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seniors are lovely people to work with,â&#x20AC;? Andrew says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re forever loading us up with cups of tea and cakes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we understand finances can be hard for them, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to help out with cheaper rates and services when they want them - not when others want them.â&#x20AC;? Phone SCS Mowing on 0455 167 948.

IndySport Cats in control against Tigers GEELONG Cricket Club is in complete control going into Saturday’s second day of play against Richmond at Kardinia Park. Winning the toss and electing to bowl first, the Cats put in a superb performance, dismissing the visitors for just 87 runs in just under three hours. Justin McPhee (4/26) and Jake Reed (3/25) were the pick of the bowlers. With 43 overs still remaining, it was always going to be interesting to see how Geelong fared in the conditions. But the Cats proved the first innings was no fault of the pitch as they cruised to 3/203 at stumps. English import Khaild Sawas made 81 to continue his good form, while Hayden Butterworth finished on 50 not-out. The Cats are well-placed to push for an outright tomorrow, the only question will be whether they declare on their overnight score or press on

Local

cricket Jim Timberlake

for some quick runs first. In Geelong Cricket Association, the match of the round looks like being between Lara and St Joseph’s. Joeys worked their way to second place on the table after an impressive victory over East Belmont last round. With the addition of some key players creating a more-even side, Joeys appears to have its best chance in a few years of making the finals after being somewhat starved of March action in recent years. Lara has won two of its five games so far and on paper appears to have all the

talent necessary to trouble any side in the competition. With the likes of Andy and Danny Hughes in the top order and young quick Matthew Richmond leading the attack, this game looks like being a classic. With a lot to play for, Lara should bounce back in a tight encounter. Other selections: NEWTOWN & CHILWELL v Geelong West, Leopold v GEELONG CITY, GROVEDALE v Highton, EAST BELMONT v Murgheboluc, SOUTH BARWON v North Geelong. In division two, the top three teams in St Albans Breakwater, Thomson and Bell Post Hill have been grabbing all the headlines but Manifold Heights and Torquay have been quietly going about their business to find themselves in sixth and seventh spots respectively. The two sides play each other at Torquay’s Spring Creek Reserve this round

in a game that’s crucial to the finals aspirations of both. Manifold Heights beat Modewarre last week, with Ben Knight and Michael Gill taking the honours in the score book. The Tigers also tasted success, chasing down Alexander Thompson’s mammoth 241, Luke Slater the hero with a well-compiled 96. With both sides possessing many genuine match winners, it’s hard to pick a winner but the home-ground advantage might just be enough to see the Tigers home. Other selections: BELL POST HILL v Guild St Mary’s, Modewarre v ST ALBAN’S BREAKWATER, St Peter’s v NEWCOMB & DISTRICT, THOMSON v Waurn Ponds, MARSHALL v Alexander Thompson. Shelford takes on Winchelsea in division three in a match that Winchel-

sea will be desperate to win in order to stay in the top six. Shelford sits in third place and has looked impressive in its three wins to date. Star brothers Shane and Michael Lymer have led the way with the bat, while Tim Wishart has 13 wickets already this season. Winchelsea enjoyed a fine victory over ladder leader Bell Park last round, chasing down the Dragons’ 250 with relative ease on the back of a majestic century to Sean Doyle, while Matthew Partridge leant support with 84. While Shelford sits higher on the ladder, Winchelsea’s victory makes it a solid favourite in this match. Other selections: Inverleigh v BELL PARK, BANNOCKBURN v North Shore, LITTLE RIVER v Meredith, TEESDALE v Lethbridge, Corio bye.

Snapper dominate local captures for anglers using either lure or bait On the

bite Brian Long

SNAPPER captures dominated reports over the past week, with plenty of fish taken on bait and lure. Ben McLean showed his skill with mate Mick Moore by catching 10 snapper off Clifton Springs, finding lure the most productive method. Finding plenty of baitfish on the sounder was the key. Keith Allan also found bait shoals then tried trolling deep-diving Rapala Taildancer lures, boating six fish and returning two over 3kg. Eleven-year-old Alicia McLean landed her first snapper of the season with dad Scott close to Wilson Spit. Her 3.2kg fish was one of three the pair landed in a 20-minute session. Anglers who braved last Saturday’s breezy southerly caught quality snapper from the outer-harbour at Wilson Spit, off the quarries and on the outer edge of Hermsley’s spoil grounds. Guy McKenzie fished the southern edge of the Stingaree Bay’s spoil where a Gulp minnow accounted for his largest fish, a beauty of 6.3kg. The evening low tides off North Shore rocks this week produced snapper over 2kg on soft plastics. Pike were also present, biting off many lures. The snapper began pushing out of the deep water and into many of the shallower haunts such as the quarries, Bird Rock and Stingaree Bay. The rising temperature also increased the whiting action, with consistent captures reported from Portarlington to Queenscliff on fresh squid or pip-

BIG TIME: Alicia McLean with her first snapper of the season, a fish of 3.2kg. pies. Garry Stephens fished the entrance to Swan Bay where mullet, salmon, garfish and flathead soon appeared in his berley trail. However, a 4.8kg gummy shark was the highlight. Trevally were caught in the cut at Queenscliff on soft plastics. Salmon, Tommy rough and the odd snapper were also landed.

Surf anglers contended with average conditions but Black Rock began producing as the weather settled, with reasonable numbers of snapper to 1.5kg and whiting better than 900g taken. Salmon were caught on lures from the rocks between Lorne and Apollo Bay. Small lures to 30g were best, with the fish feeding on small bait. Anglers returned with excellent reports from

freshwater destinations further afield, especially Lake Lonsdale where redfin over 2kg were landed using either cast or trolled lures. Nathan Forbes landed two of 2.1kg each on a Vibrax. Stuart O’Shea tried Lake Toolondo where he managed seven trout over two days, the biggest 2.3kg. Stuart said most fish he saw landed were taken on mudeye. Moorabool Reservoir fished superbly on Monday afternoon when light winds saw the fish working the surface on a Dun hatch. Using a fly called a shaving brush, Ballarat’s Tom Stirling landed four fish under 2kg. The Barwon River in Geelong remained discoloured, with eels the major target species for anglers using worm baits. However, Steven Tully landed two trout on a smelt-pattern fly in the running water at Buckley Falls. Lismore’s Lake Tooliorook was best for anglers in boats, with mudeye or small bibbed lures cast around the heavy weed beds taking fish to more than 3kg. Ballarat’s Lake Wendouree continued producing great trout fishing as well as some big redfin over 1.5kg. Bait anglers have favoured mudeye, while fly and shallow-running bigged lures also work well. Snapper should be worth chasing this weekend on the spoil grounds in Stingaree Bay or on the banks off the quarries. Lake Bullen Merri should be a good freshwater choice, with Powerbait fished on the bottom or trolled Tassie Devils in the gold colourations the best bets. Send reports and photos to info@raylongtackle.com. au or visit Brian at Ray Long’s Fishing World, 105 Shannon Ave, Manifold Heights.
