Bio-tech cure for Geelong loss

Drug maker in Ford plan By NOEL MURPHY

Rescuing our secret roo residents THEY’RE Geelong’s secret residents, hiding in back yards, sleeping during the day and foraging on garden beds and foliage of a night time. Swamp wallabies and eastern grey kangaroos make their way into Geelong every day, according to wildlife rescuer David Burrell, to munch and chomp on plentiful suburban food supplies.

Some have been living in town for years. Mr Burrell removes hundreds of the animals from urban areas each year. He says North Geelong through the city centre to Highton and Grovedale are all popular destinations for the hungry macropods. Continued Page 2

FORD’S North Geelong plant could be converted to a multi-million dollar pharmaceutical manufacturing site if a Sydney cell biologist has his way. Managing director of Benitec Biopharma Limited, Dr Peter French, said he was keen to utilise Ford’s plant when it is decommissioned from carmaking, to manufacture drugs. He hopes the operation could become a giant global enterprise based at Geelong. Benitec Biopharma operates out of Sydney but Dr French, who earned his doctorate at Deakin University, is testing new drugs which could lead to a single-injection hepatitis C treatment. If successful, this could change the lives of up to 170 million hep C sufferers around the world. Dr French’s research is also tackling gene therapy assaults on hepatitis B, affecting 350 million, and lung cancer. “We’re starting trials in America soon and if they’re shown to be safe and effective we’ll gear up for more trials and then start thinking manufacture,” Dr French told the Independent. “But the time is now to talk to governments about assisting us. There is clearly a need for Australia to embrace clever technologies and we are the only gene therapy technology company in Australia. “We’re a small company with an enormous potential if we can provide a single-shot cure for hep B and C.” Dr French said Chinese investors had shown interest in his company’s work but he was keen to keep manufacturing in Australia and, with major manufacturers such as Ford culling back their operations, he thought Geelong was a good proposition. “The shell of the building would be useful but at this stage we have no idea exactly what space we’d need, it’s still at a very early stage, but we need to start thinking about it now,” he said. “My main aim is to get the Government thinking about the possibility of more creative uses of its subsidies to old industries and how it could be helping new industries.” Dr French thought start-up cost savings could be

FRESH HOPE: Dr Peter French of Benitec Biopharma. achieved by helping new industries utilise the infrastructure of declining industries. The US Food and Drug Administration is tipped to give the nod within weeks to Benitec’s breakthrough technology that would result in patient DNA affected by hepatitis being shut down with a single injection medication. The treatment involves an artificially-built DNA strand carried to the liver by a benign virus injected into the patient. Liver cells then generate a therapeutic double stranded RNA molecule which shuts down the hepatitis C from replicating. Dr French’s aspirations of utilising the Ford site have drawn national attention, including a qualified nod from former prime minister Bob Hawke. “For us to go overseas would be a great loss for Australia if we’re as successful as we hope to be,” Dr French said.

Port tones for festival By PAUL MILLAR SEA FARMERS are toning up their mussels for Portarlington’s annual festival, to ensure they can meet the growing demand for the molluscs. Organisers are expecting a crowd of up to 30,000 to attend Saturday’s festival, with visitors tipped to shell out their dollars on at least five tonnes of the locally farmed shellfish. Festival president Dick Un-

derwood said the festival showcased everything that was good about the Bellarine. “Everybody wants to try the mussels, you can cook them with anything, the sky is the limit,’’ he said. There will be cooking demonstrations throughout the day, with local wines to wash down the mussels or, if you prefer, within the shellfish when they are cooked.

Roving acts will keep visitors entertained as well as live bands. “We’ve been going for about eight years and it is getting bigger all the time,’’ Mr Underwood said. “When we first started we had about 40 to 50 stallholders, this year we had to reject that number because we ran out of room.’’ This year’s festival will also include photography and art exhibitions.

From page 1 Mr Burrell, who runs the Leopold Wildlife Shelter and Rescue Service, nabbed a wallaby in Newtown on Sunday after it crossed busy Aberdeen Street and took up lodgings in a Skene Street property. “He cleared an eight-foot fence when we arrived but we caught it two doors up,” he told the Independent. “He was a good-sized male, probably five or six years old, around 40kg and he stood about four feet high flat-footed.

“We caught him by hand, we don’t use nets or tranquilisers, and transported him to the You Yangs.” Mr Burrell said he’d been removing “at least one a day for the last 30 years”. “They come in from the bush along the train line, the waterfront, the Moorabool River,” he said. “They’re usually in trouble once they’re in town and some we catch straight away but others will stay for years. “They can survive quite well. They’re nocturnal so they might

sleep behind a garage during the day, and they’re very secretive and solitary animals. “There’s a lot of food in town, the property I was at on Sunday was like a bush setting, the wallaby would’ve been happy to stay there long as he could,” he said. “At a mimimum, we catch one a day but sometimes three or four. Ninety per cent of them are swamp wallabies, occasionally we get an eastern grey.” If you spot a wallaby or roo in town, call Leopold Wildlife Shelter and Rescue on 0409 002 258.

Motor museum mill plan By NOEL MURPHY

THE Fair Work Ombudsman will commence audits of Geelong region fast food outlets as part of a national campaign spurred by the “significant number of complaints”. Fair Work Inspectors will check employers are paying employees their minimum entitlements, including minimum hourly rates, penalty rates and overtime rates, and are complying with their recordkeeping and payslip obligations.

Witness sought A TERRIFIED shopper, who was in the queue ahead of an armed robbery at Highton’s Aldi supermarket, could provide vital clues in the hunt for the gunman. Detective Senior Constable Brett Hampson said police were keen to get in touch with a male who was in front of the offender getting his groceries during the robbery last week.

Bay rescue EIGHT paddle boarders were rescued from Corio Bay following wild winds earlier this week. The paddle boarders, aged between 40 and 60 years, were located in the water near Point Wilson, with one clinging to a channel marker. Two were treated for mild hypothermia.

“Thirdly, we hope to take some of the skills from retired workers and pass them on to others, especially disadvantaged youth.” Mr Hamilton said the motoring museum was part of broader plans for the historic Federal Mill precinct in Mackey Street. He wouldn’t detail the plans but

suggested hundreds of jobs could be generated by some $10 million investment in different business enterprises within the area. “We’re about attracting people to Geelong,” he said. “Our goal is to find new uses for old buildings and we specialise in things that are at least 50 years old, it’s all about cleaning them up and tenanting them.”

GEELONG’S economy could lose up to a quarter of a billion dollars if Alcoa is to close its Point Henry plant as widely expected from an operations review to be finalised in March. More than 900 workers at the complex earn in the order of $1.5 million a week in wages – or $75 million a year. With a flow-on spending factor of four, where the money is spent and respent again locally, Geelong retailers, services and businesses stand to lose close to a quarter of a billion dollars if Alcoa shuts down. Geelong authorities and lobby groups say the city stands to be struck hard if Alcoa closes, as widely ex-

pected, but believe the region is well poised to capitalise on emerging opportunities and a rapidly rising profile the city is gaining under its new mayoralty. Geelong Chamber of Commerce executive officer Bernadette Uzelac said Alcoa’s departure would affect more than just employees and business. “Alcoa has been a very strong community citizen,” she said. “It has supported a lot of not-forprofit organisations and has been a wonderful corporate citizen for all the years it’s been in Geelong. “There’s certainly some dependence in terms of the support they’ve provided to programs and in their

workforce participating in community work.” Alcoa has been hanging on at Point Henry with a $40 million federal handout, conditional on the company staying open until June. A report due late March is expected to rubber-stamp the plant’s closure in the face of falling prices, a high Australian dollar and massive competition from China. Ms Uzelac said slashing Alcoa production and jobs would have “quite a spin-off effect” on the local economy. “With all that disposable income not being spent in shops and down the chain certainly there’s an impact,” she said. “I think as city we have to face up

to it and look to future industries in Geelong and those that will take Geelong into future.” Alcoa employs around 900 in the Geelong region and at its Point Henry operations. It produces 190,000 tonnes of alumina a year and is Victoria’s largest exporter with overseas sales worth around $1.2 billion a year, or some four per cent of the State’s exports. Committee for Geelong executive director Rebecca Casson said a strategy for revitalising the local economy would focus on ambassadorial and leadership roles, vastly enhanced transport and freight infrastructure and capacity.

Police manhunt as family fears for escapee’s safety By PAUL MILLAR POLICE have launched a manhunt for a troubled Geelong man - who fled a minimum security jail - fearing that he could cause serious harm to himself. Fugitive Taskforce detectives have expressed concern for the welfare of Matthew James Boland, who was reported missing from the minimumsecurity Dhurringile Prison, near Murchison, on Sunday night. The 36-year-old father of three children, from two separate relation-

ships, was in the latter stages of a sixmonth sentence for property damage and is regarded as a low-risk prisoner. He has not been seen since his escape and police believe that he could have fled to his home town. Detective Sergeant Mick Gunn from the taskforce said Boland was not a hardened criminal and was doing his first stint in prison. “He is from a good family and has two children to one lady and one to another and as far as we are aware he has

not tried to contact them,’’ he told the Independent. “We have no leads on him at all, we know that all his family and friends are from the Geelong area and nobody has heard from him. “We want him to give himself up or to contact his family to let them know that he is all right,’’ Det Sgt Gunn said. Boland is believed to be without funds and sources said that he was a deep thinker. “Police together with Matthew’s

family and friends are concerned that Matthew may attempt to harm himself and are appealing for anyone with information to come forward,” a police spokeswoman said. “Investigators are also appealing to Matthew to come forward and let us know that he is okay,” she said. Anybody with information about his whereabouts is asked to call Triple Zero (000) or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or log onto crimestoppers. com.au.

THE FORD Discovery Centre, closed in July 2012, could be resurrected as part of a Geelong Museum of Motoring planned for the former Mill Markets site. Developers Dennis More and Cameron Hamilton, together with a committee headed by Geelong Revival director Nicholas Heath, want to have the motoring museum open by Easter. In it, if approved by City Hall, would be the former Ford Discovery Centre vehicles and displays along with other vehicles such as trucks and boats built at Geelong in the past. Mr Heath told the Independent up to 200 vehicles were on offer for the museum to showcase although exhibitions would probably feature no more than 50 vehicles at a time. He said a proposal was being put to the City this week which, if okayed, could see the Ford collection and other vehicles available for public viewing within just months. “When it closed, which saddened us all, we put forward a suggestion for a volunteer-based collection,” he said. “They were amendable to idea and, based on our formal proposal, they’ve basically deeded us the contents of the museum.” Mr Heath said the museum would be about Geelong’s motoring heritage, not simply Ford cars. It would host local and touring exhibitions. The committee hopes also to spearhead a motoring education facility for unemployed. “The history of the industry, some

Deakin helps US Air Force

Invisibility research By NOEL MURPHY INVISIBILITY cloaks might make for magic Harry Potter entertainment but for Deakin University’s Tiffany Walsh and the US Air Force they’re deadly serious business. Together, they’re working on nanotechnology techniques to camouflage fighter planes from attack. And taking inspiration from natural substances such as mother-of-pearl – with its unusual sheen – they’re bending light about at the molecular level so that what you might see isn’t really what’s there. Think smoke and mirrors of 19th century magic shows brought into the 21st century and you’re almost there. Except what’s happening has much more serious military hardware and civilian applications. Associate Professor Walsh is working with US researchers at the universities of Miami and Buffalo, with Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) funding, looking at manipulating light so that aircraft might be ren-

dered effectively invisible to the enemy. “It’s pretty ambitious and just one application this technology could potentially be used for,” Associate Prof Walsh told the Independent. “The US Air Force made a call for proposals to make 3D assemblies of nanoparticles using bio-molecules and one potential outcome would be light bending. “Another is photonic circuitry to carry electricity using beams of light instead of wires, exerting our technology to make it bend around corners.” The possibility of energy being transferred by light holds enormous heat-reduced carbon footprint ramifications but as Associate Prof Walsh says, it all “might be a long way off yet”. Even so, the peculiar 3D molecular makeup of the abalone shell’s calcium carbonate holds similarities to the nanoparticle engineering Deakin’s Institute for Frontier Materials is working on at Waurn Ponds. “We predict the structure of these nanoparticles and bio-molecules at the molecular level and use that informa-

Candidates’ battlelines are drawn for local seats By PAUL MILLAR THE LIBERAL Party will make a concentrated attack on Lisa Neville’s seat of Bellarine at the next election. Liberal stalwart Angelo Kakouros expected some strong candidates to apply for pre-selection to contest the most marginally held seat in the district. Re-distribution of the electoral boundaries is making Ms Neville’s slim hold on Bellarine a prime target for a serious challenge, with Mr Kakouros saying it is well within range. The Liberals have called for applications for endorsement for Polwarth, held by Public Transport Minister

Terry Mulder, South Barwon, held by Liberal Andrew Katos, and Geelong where the ALP’s Ian Trezise holds sway. Mr Kakouros also played down any thought of dissatisfaction with the sitting members of Polwarth and South Barwon. “It just shows that we are transparent in the way we do things in the Liberal Party, there are no backroom deals and it’s up to the members to make a decision,” he said. Although it unclear who will nominate it is clear that the Liberal Party has Bellarine in its sights.

certainly make it more marginal, but I’m confident that I can hold the seat,” she said. Labor’s member for Lara, John Eren said it was telling that the Liberal Party had failed to call for nominations in his electorate. “It shows that there is a lack of concern for the people in the north,” he said. It could be, however, that the Liberal Party sees the seat as un-winnable, with Mr Eren claiming almost double the votes of his nearest opponent, Robert Eyton, at the 2010 state election.

“I suspect there will be a few candidates that want to take on Lisa Neville, as she has taken Bellarine for granted. “Out of all this seats in the area, this is the one that will be most closely watched,” Mr Kakouros said, adding that Mr Katos appeared to have done enough in his first-term to be re-endorsed by party members Ms Neville conceded that she was facing a real challenge after losing about 10,000 voters from the Whittington and Newcomb areas and picking up about 3000 in Barwon Heads. “I’m not surprised that they are targeting Bellarine, re-distribution will

Keep on truckin’ By NOEL MURPHY TRUCKS and tractors, tools and toys – a vintage mechanical frenzy is set for Geelong Showgrounds this weekend. Steam engines, internal combustion donks, oil motors, a vintage pull, a B24 Liberator exhibit – all these and more will be on show at the Geelong Clas-

sic Truck and Vintage Machinery Show. The show’s Chris Quirke says a 1000-horsepower marine engine, Geelong model engineers, meccano club and much more will be on show as well. “Nothing prepares you for the incredible smells of the oils and sounds of the steam mechanics chugging up and down,” he said.

“The amount of passion and workmanship in restoration and upkeep of many of the pieces of equipment will also amaze, and there is plenty a story to tell from the passionate owners.” The Geelong Classic Truck and Vintage Machinery Show runs Saturday and Sunday from 9am at the showgrounds in Breakwater.

Shooter fears curb big cat reports By NOEL MURPHY A FEAR of luring cowboy shooters into the local bushland keeps farmers from reporting more sightings of big cats and Tasmanian tigers, according to Freshwater Creek’s Harry Cook. Recent reports suggest both animals may be found through the Otways but definitive evidence remains scarce. The Independent has reported multiple claims in recent years – including a striped, wolf-like creature at Apollo Bay, a large animal with a hyena gait, wolfish head and strange colouring on Anglesea Road and scats from Wensleydale DNA-tested as black Asian leopards. But Mr Cook, who claims to have sighted a metre-high striped creature near his own property, insists reports are few and far between compared to actual sightings and activity by the animals.

“There’s been a lot of people who’ve seen both animals but they won’t come forward because they’ll cop a lot of ridicule and bullying so they’re keeping quiet,” Mr Cook said. “First time I went public I was told off by the locals. They said they don’t want cowboys shooting at them.” Mr Cook said he’s been told of big cats and thylacine sightings by numerous people across the district and further afield: Moriac, Bambra, Anglesea, Gherang and more. “One girl told me she’d seen a big cat crossing the road at Alvie, a girl from Bambra saw one at a milking shed, they come to dairies and lick up the milk. “These people tell you they hear them all the time out in the bush. They say the cat sounds like a woman screaming. It puts the hairs up on the back of your head. “One man in the Forrest area

told me he saw one jump over a huge culvert in one bound and disappear. “But if you say you saw something the locals will say you’re mad, we don’t talk about it because we don’t want the cowboys coming in and shooting at them.” Researchers Simon Townsend and Dr David Waldron contend that wealthy 19th century squatters and others set up menageries with lions, tigers and other large cats imported from overseas. They believe the legendary bush puma to be melanistic Asian leopards brought to Australia by acclimatisation societies from colonial days. “Big cats have a huge range, about 200km, you can see them here today and tomorrow up near Colac,” Mr Cook said. “It’s a whole new story for us. We just think there are kangaroos and echidnas out there rather than something that can eat you.”

‘Put our city up on big screen’ By PAUL MILLAR LOCAL councillor Eddy Kontelj has floated the idea of erecting a big screen in the heart of the city to help revitalise the CBD. The Cowie ward councillor said the screen could promote and cover local and international sporting events and run local news and be funded by advertising. “It would attract a different type of person to places like the mall and make it a more inviting place for people to visit,” Cr Kontelj said.

The screen could also be used to deliver emergency warnings and local weather forecasts. He said Federation Square had proved to be a huge success in Melbourne and he was keen to explore the possibility of a similar option in Geelong. His vision ties in with plans to revitalise the city centre. “This initiative may provide one opportunity to clean up the unsavoury gatherings in our mall, by having a more family friendly environment for people

to gather in and driving out poor behaviour,” he said. The councillor believed the concept should be complemented with alfresco dining. “Each day you could experience an electric mix of media including cutting edge arts projects, multicultural news broadcasts and also view information of events and attractions in Melbourne. “We could also show major sporting events such as the AFL grand final, the Melbourne Cup, World Cup soccer and

the formula one grand prix,” he said. “We could showcase our coast line, and promote Geelong, highlighting what’s happening; we could have interactive television and even our own Geelong TV. “It could be funded by companies keen to promote their products and venues to visitors.” Federation Square regularly draws huge crowds to view international sporting events, many travelling from Geelong to soak up the atmosphere.

BIG IDEA: Cr Eddy Kontelj favours a big screen in the city to showcase the region.

Cheesy mayor hams it up in new venture By PAUL MILLAR DARRYN Lyons, the mayor with attitude, is now a part-owner of Pizzas with Attitude. The councillor with the rainbow plumage, however, said that he was not in it for the dough. The long-established East Geelong pizzeria is across the square from the Elephant and Castle, which is owned by Cr Lyons. The mayor said when it came on the market it made sense to put in an offer for it. “We knew it was a good business and a good tie in with the pub,” he said. He has already made his mark on the operation, which now lists a mayoral pizza on the menu. “It’s a cross between an Aussie and a Hawaiian with barbecue sauce on it,’’ he said with a cheesy grin. “It’s the oldest established pizza shop in Geelong, it’s been around since 1956, I loved the company so much that I bought it,” he said. Mario Gregorio, who is the operations manager for the councillor’s Big Group of Companies, is also a part owner of the pizzeria, along with close friends Finlay and Sally Massey. “It’s a good, fun business and it creates work for people in Geelong,’’ the mayor and pizzeria part-owner said. The purchase follows the recent sale of the Growlers restaurant in Torquay by Cr Lyons. Cr Lyons bought the Torquay eatery in early 2011.

STAY AFLOAT: Experts will be on hand to advise boaties on safety matters.

By PAUL MILLAR BOAT owners will receive a few lessons in reality during an awareness campaign at the Ocean Grove boat ramp on Sunday.

Key agencies will share information and provide advice to all watercraft operators during the session, which will run from 9am until 1pm. The community boating day is a partnership operation between Barwon Coast, Victoria Police, Transport Safety Victoria (marine) and local en-

Barwon Coast’s Maddie Glynn said it was not a compliance operation, but more of a day of information sharing. “The day is about creating awareness on safety and responsible boating to ensure others and yourself stay safe this summer; don’t become a statistic,” Ms Glynn said. “We invite all water craft operators to bring their families down on the day and chat to the many representatives who will be able to assist you with all your local boating and fishing inquiries.” The day includes free giveaways.

PUBLIC NOTICES OZACT presents

Bird flu hits egg supply By PAUL MILLAR LOCAL egg producers are being inundated with calls to help make up a shortfall in supplies, following an outbreak of bird flu that closed two major poultry farms in New South Wales. About 450,000 chickens were culled in New South Wales in early December as a result of the discovery, causing a national shortfall in the lead up to one of the busiest periods of the year. Local suppliers already have contracts to fulfil but are repeatedly being called up for on the spot supplies. “It’s good for the local marker but we certainly feel for the famers up there,’’ Stephen Colla, the chief executive at Meredith’s Happy Hens Egg

Farm, told the Independent. Owner of Spring Valley Egg Farm at Torquay, Brian Pocklington, said there had been an increase in demand. “But we also have our own contracts to fulfil, we are getting phone calls from everybody,’’ he said. Egg farmers, however, cannot crank up their supplies to meet an increase in demands. The 450,000 birds that were culled would have laid about six eggs each a week and the loss has made a significant dent in the market. A spokeswoman for Woolworths said while organic egg supplies had not been hit, the supermarket chain was looking for additional suppliers from caged egg suppliers.

Local traffic and emergency vehicles are advised to use Hope Street or Gertrude Street to access Coquette Street at this location. For enquiries see our Construction Supervisor on site or call 5272 4280.

Designs test of style most foul By NOEL MURPHY MURDER and architecture make for strange partners but Geelong’s Derham Grove says pulp fiction has more in common with design than many people think. Dr Groves, who lectures at Melbourne University, has been putting his students through the hoops of blood and gore in pursuit of better buildings and, nominally, an Australian Crime Centre. Renowned for his expertise on all things Sherlock Holmes, Dr Groves said architects could learn a lot from crime authors. “Place plays an important part in crime fiction, it’s important to know where things are and where people are located,” he said. “I believe buildings should tell stories regardless of what style they take. “When you actually start with a narrative as the stimulus for building, that kind of helps this idea that perhaps a building is another way of telling a story.” Dr Groves worked with colleague Dr Andrew Saniga and architecture and landscape students, assigning them pulp novels Who’s Dying and Murder’s Burning and a brief to design new book covers, movie posters, stage props or sets linked back to the books. They depicted the books’ murder victims with bloodied Barbie and Ken doll corpses. Students ventured to Ballarat and Woomera to immerse themselves in the penny dreadfuls and seek inspiration for their work. On their return they were also tasked with designing an Australian Crime Centre. The results were colourful, contemporary and bloodstained – and, as Dr Groves wanted, out the box. “Architecture to me is often too polite, too much about good taste rather than good designs, so it was using crime to try and get people to actually think outside the good taste box,” Dr Groves said.

Letters Truth-centred PASTOR Lowry’s choice of Copernicus and Galileo (Independent, 13 December) as examples of solitary scientific pioneers battling the majority of experts could not have been more apt. And who were the experts? The Church and its thought police, the Inquisition. Copernicus died before his classic De Revolutionibus could get him into trouble, Galileo escaped the torture chamber only by recanting and Giordano Bruno went to the stake. After all, everybody knew the sun went round the Earth - except when Joshua stopped it - and that the Earth was the centre of the universe. But Copernicus’ followers persevered with their silly idea that the Earth moved and their scientific revolution changed the world. Not that everyone believes in reason and scientific method. Some think they’re just fashions that will go away and let us return to the holy world of ignorance and superstition into which Copernicus was born. Tim Saclier Leopold

Shopping strip JUST what is Council’s policy? The nature strip outside homes belongs to the Council, not to the (residential) property owner, even though there is an expectation that the property owner keep it tidy and in good order. Yet some repeatedly use their nature strip as a shop front to sell everything imaginable including, in one recent case, a rusted out kitchen sink. On countless occasions, I have almost run into the back of cars whose drivers have come to an abrupt stop to gawk at items for sale. There is a clear danger to public safety here. Given that the owners of the properties concerned are effectively running tax-free small business operations, there would appear to be an argument for our cash-strapped council to introduce a significant fee for those who serially use council property for clear commercial purposes. At the very minimum, in the interest of public safety, a limit should be placed on the number of occasions a nature strip can be used, each year, for the above purpose. Our council needs to rapidly and publicly address this matter as there are obvious risk management issues involved. Michael J Gamble Belmont

Speed camera check call THE story ‘Norlane cams fines up again’ (Independent, 20 December) had me infuriated. I was one of those drivers slugged with a $361 fine and the loss of three demerit points in November. I have been a resident in Geelong for more than 25 years, first getting my driving license in 1990. I consider myself to be a safety conscious driver who has a squeaky-clean driving record to prove it. I know this particular intersection well and used it regularly without ever experiencing any problems until the Bunning’s Warehouse opened 12 months ago. Nowadays I avoid it at all costs because of the increased traffic and congestion coming out of the Bunning’s car park. I have found that by the time you reach the top of the queue (turning right onto Princes Hwy) you don’t have any time to decide whether it is more risky to stop with your car half over the white line or to keep going to clear the intersection, inevitably resulting in a hefty fine. The VicRoads response is nothing more than pitiful finger pointing in an effort to take the pressure off VicRo-

As it stands Ryrie St and residential areas to the south will wear pronounced increased levels of heavy vehicle flow. By parlaying much of the problem to Ryrie St one can’t help but feel sorry for the not insignificant number of alfresco business operators who will further be impacted by cavalier decision making. In fairness to all, the trial period model should have consisted of a 7am to 7pm CBD curfew for all but essential deliveries. Richard Worland Manifold Heights

ads. It insults all drivers’ intelligence. I have formed an opinion that these lights are faulty and VicRoads are clearly content to sit back and revenue raise rather than investigate. I would like to see an official VicRoads investigation

which is transparent to all interested. It should not just investigate the accuracy of the time lapse from amber to red but also consider the size of the intersection and time it takes to clear it safely. Susan Spokes Geelong

Icy irony

Trial by truck

LET me get this right. These climate scientists trapped in the sea ice went down to the Antarctic to prove the ice cap is melting and then get frozen in sea ice because ice cover has expanded? What delicious irony! Alan Barron Grovedale

VICROADS and CoGGs Malop St three-month heavy vehicle exclusion trial represents flawed collaborative planning. One would have expected, particularly from the former - traffic management being its core aspect greater attention to detail and a more holistic plan. Moving a few chairs solves nothing.

DESPITE a sixth consecutive fall in the state road toll, tragically, 45 people aged 75-plus lost their lives on Victorian roads in 2013. This was up from 35 in 2012, a sad increase in a year which saw the lowest road toll for 90 years. Driver licensing policy in Victoria is based on fitness to drive - people can drive to any age as long as they are safe to do so. While older drivers are over-represented in serious injury and fatal crashes, this is mostly due to their frailty, reduced bone strength and fracture tolerance. The TAC, however, continues to review research into how road trauma among our ageing population can be reduced and is always monitoring this vital issue in Victoria, interstate and overseas. Safe driving programs are available to seniors groups with aim to assist older Victorians maintain safe mobility, whether as a driver, pedestrian or public transport user. We know that most older drivers are safe drivers and are very good at self-regulating their driving, which we encourage. This could involve deciding not to drive at night or at peak hour when driving is more difficult. As a family member, if you are concerned about an ageing relative’s ability to drive safely, it is best to review the information available on VicRoads’ website (vicroads.vic.gov.au). The TAC will never rest easy in striving for every Victorian’s journey to be a safe one and we wish you a happy and safe new year. Clare Amies TAC Acting Chief Executive Officer

And don’t forget the variety of services available. At OPSM Waurn Ponds, resident optometrist Rowan Prendergast says, “Research indicates that almost 80% of children’s learning is through their vision and we encourage parents to have their children’s eyesight checked before the school year begins, whether symptomatic or not. “The comprehensive testing is bulk-billed to Medicare so there are no out of pocket expenses for a simple test.

“Furthermore a child’s vision can be monitored throughout the year by watching for tell-tale signs such as rubbing their eyes constantly, complaining of headaches with close work, blinking frequently, losing concentration or losing their place while reading. “Alternatively, they may hold the page closer than normal, use their fingers to underline words, omit or confuse small words, or turn or tilt their head excessively. “We recommend children have their eyes examined every two years, especially once at school.” OPSM conduct a half-hour examination, testing vision to detect long-sightedness, short-sightedness, astigmatism, lazy eyes or crossed eyes. The new technology in store allows for a thorough eye health assessment of eye co-ordination, focusing ability and range, eye movement control, depth perception and colour vision. “Kids often find the testing to be fun and we have a variety of visual aid options for kids, including contact lenses and funky spectacles,” said Mr Prendergast. Also ready to assist with School Uniform and clothing alterations is Alterations Now located opposite the car park, next to ANZ Bank. Alterations Now have a rich, family history of tailoring, business owner Stella said. “We have years of experience and are delighted to provide professional, affordable clothing alterations to the families of Waurn Ponds and surrounds. “If clothing is too tight, too loose, too long or too short, come and see us to make your clothing fit like a glove.”

Are you ready to begin your career in Childcare?

To work in Children’s Services from 2014 you either need to hold a Certicate III in Children’s Services qualication or be actively working towards one.

Our specially designed classes have been developed by our team of highly experienced trainers to ensure you have the skills and knowledge needed, not just to work in the childcare industry, but to ensure you have the right foundation to begin your career.

there is a month to month tenancy or when the end date on the notice is after the end date of your fixed term agreement. With these notices there is no obligation for the landlord to give any reason why he wants you to leave. A NTV must be in the proper form and be signed or dated by the landlord or real estate agent. It has to be filled out and served properly and not simply be left in your mail box. If the notice does not meet all the legal requirements, it may be invalid and you may be able to challenge it.

It is important that you obtain legal advice if you receive any notice to vacate. Even if you have no legal reason to challenge the NTV, a lawyer may be able to negotiate a longer period of time before you have to move out. This information is offered as a guide only and should not be used as a substitute for professional legal advice. The Barwon Community Legal Service advises tenants only. For free advice phone Barwon Community Legal Service on 1300 430 599, 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday, or visit barwoncls. org.au.

TENANT TIPS: Under the Residential Tenancies Act 1997 both landlords and tenants have rights and responsibilities, Simon Pitman says.

A NOTICE to Vacate (NTV) is simply a notice served by a landlord on a tenant advising the tenant that the landlord wants the tenant to move out of the property. There are various reasons why a landlord can issue a NTV and the length of the notice depends on what the reasons are. The notices to vacate can relate to different periods of time including immediate NTV, 14, 60 and 120 days. An immediate NTV can only be issued if the rented premises are destroyed, unfit for living in, if the property is deliberately damaged by a tenant or their visitor, or the tenant or their visitor endangers the safety of a neighbour. If you receive an immediate NTV you should seek urgent legal advice. A 14-day NTV can be issued in a wider range of reasons including rent being 14 days in arrears, the bond has not been paid when required, the premises are sub-let without permission, or the tenant breaches a condition relating to the property such as prohibiting children living in the premises or using of the property for illegal purposes. There are also more technical legal reasons including failing to comply with a Compliance Order of the Tribunal, or the tenant has breached a legal duty for the third time. These relate to public and private tenants but public tenants have more rules they also need to follow. A 60-day NTV can be issued by the landlord if the property is going to be demolished, used for any other purpose other than a rented premises, occupied by the landlord or the landlord’s partner, child, parent or partner’s parent or someone who normally lives with the landlord and is dependent on the landlord, sold with vacant possession, repaired, renovated or reconstructed and this cannot be done without the premises being vacant or, it will be used for public purposes (if it is a public property). This notice can only be used with certain types of tenancy so if you receive a 60-day NTV you should seek legal advice. A 120-day NTV can be issued without specifying a reason when

Hugo’s local live music boost what’s great about Geelong,” Armstrong explained. Armstrong has enjoyed plenty of successes throughout his career including a Centenary of Federation Medal in 2001 recognising his long-term service within Borough of Queenscliffe and the music industry. During his tenure at Queenscliff Music Festival, it was voted best national festival in the Australian Tourism Hall of Fame awards three years in a row. He has also performed MC duties at some of the country’s largest music festivals, hosted a Melbourne Community Radio show for more than 20 years and served three years as Bellarine Tourism chair. Armstrong described The Blues Train as “a unique marriage between a live music event and a tourism product” that offered weekly “mini-festivals” with ARIA award-winning and internationallyacclaimed acts. Boosting the Queenscliff and Bellarine Peninsula economy by $5 million annually, The Blues Train had so far entertained more than 50,000 people - the capacity of Etihad stadium, Armstrong said. “Over 20 years we’ve travelled the equivalent of Queenscliff to Shanghai return - in 16km trips over 370 shows.” More information about Motor City Music Festival is available at motorcitymusicfestival.com.au.

By MICHELLE HERBISON GEELONG’S music scene may have changed a lot over the 20 years since Hugo T Armstrong founded Queenscliff’s The Blues Train but the unique tourism venture is still going strong. Now he is gearing up to celebrate the train’s 20th anniversary with a bang, hosting the inaugural Motor City Music Festival from 7-9 March. After 25 years in media, festival and events and tourism management, Armstrong is well equipped to host Geelong’s own music festival, which promises to rejuvenate live performance in the city. “Geelong had an incredibly strong live music scene, pushed out by gaming machines and urban sprawl,” Armstrong lamented. “But people’s love of music never went.” Motor City Music Festival will take inspiration from Queenscliff Music Festival, of which Armstrong was at the helm for eight years, with a series of unique venues. An open-air stage reminiscent of A Day On The Green would offer punters the opportunity to relax on the grass with a bottle of wine and some gourmet food from one of the many vans present. “Each day is a bit different, it’s cheap, accessible and celebrating

Mi-Sex playing computer games By JOHN VAN KLAVEREN EIGHTIES rock icons Mi-Sex made a pact a couple of years ago. “We will get together and perform at least a few times each year.” The band is honouring that pact by embarking on a tour taking in Geelong as they roll out their numerous ’70s and ’80s hits. “Mi-Sex can’t wait to perform to the many Geelong punters who helped make Mi-Sex nights in Geelong so special 30 years ago,” bassist Don Martin said. Computer Games, Blue Day, Castaway, But You Don’t Care, Graffiti Crimes, People, Falling In & Out, Space Race, It Only Hurts When I’m Laughing - the hit-list rolls on. The word is out: Mi-Sex are back in fine style, with new frontman, Noisework’s Steve Balbi, on vocals. The band has been proving they have lost none of the fire, passion and musicianship that propelled them to the top of the Oz music scene back in the day. “With a number of NSW shows under our belt, the on stage chemistry once again delivers a magic live show,” Martin said. “The set is made up of songs that you are sure to remember. It’s about doing something we love for our fans.” Mi-Sex swept the annual Countdown awards, charting hit after hit, including a number one with

Waters finds new layers DELVING into the song lyrics of Beatles legend John Lennon helped Australian stage star John Waters represent the man and his life in a unique performance. Looking Through a Glass Onion returns to Geelong more than two decades after its first show, profiling the music, the politics and the whirlwind of Lennon’s life – creating a worldwide social phenomenon and upheaval of a generation in “seven years of madness”. “The opening line in the song Glass Onion, ‘I told you about Strawberry Fields, you know the place where nothing is real’ refers to this crazy, mad world and everything else that came with fame which was so far beyond what they had thought,” Waters explained. “When you look at the lyrics particularly from John Lennon, they do tell a story.” Waters’ varied career on stage and in film and television has given him the perfect pedigree to perform the show, which he described as a “theat-

rical collage”, following a “loose chronology” of Lennon’s life and career through songs and stories. “I channel him with a monologue which sounds as if he’s answering questions to a journalist on what it was like being a Beatle and how it all fell apart.” Despite identifying as “not really a fan of anything”, Waters had always been fascinated by Lennon beyond the music, he said. “I remember the incidents. I wrote it myself based on what I knew were the reported thoughts of John Lennon so it’s my interpretation.” The show helped artistically explain to younger generations the “ludicrous” social revolution that the Beatles created. “This was not just a band that sold a lot of records – it affected everybody’s lives. There were articles about them for five solid years every day. “The Beatles spoke politically; they were witty, funny, intelligent and working class. The situation in Britain owes

them debt for waking people up from the social divide.” New York had finally beckoned the show for next year, Waters proud of achieving his ultimate ambition to perform off Broadway in what became Lennon’s hometown. Looking Through a Glass Onion opens at GPAC on Sunday 16 February.

THE ultimate three-day drama experience hits Geelong from 20 to 22 January and is set to be the biggest workshop of its kind the region has ever seen. Mooregrace Acting Studio’s Paul Moore and Sarah Grace, from Channel 7’s Winners and Losers, have teamed up with renowned Geelong College drama teacher Orazio Galluccio, to develop the program. “Our idea is to give young students who love the arts the chance to experience as many different facets of performance as possible over the three days,” says Sarah. Students will work with expert teachers in the areas of hip hop dance, acting for stage, mime, acting for camera, improvisation, green-screen special effects, movie making and more. “There really is something for everyone,” says Paul. “There is absolutely no doubt that this workshop will be of the highest standard with all three of the program co-ordinators having completed education degrees and sharing a passion for the benefits of performing arts in education.” Orazio said he could see on a daily basis the confidence and self-esteem students built.

Helen and Lyn offer a friendly environment.

Relax hair-free A PASSION for offering a permanent solution to unwanted hair problems led Helen Hochreiter to open her new business, Geelong Laser and Electrolysis Clinic. Previously co-owner and director at Geelong Hair Removal, Helen’s new business offers fresh and existing clients a professional service in a relaxed and friendly environment. The spacious and modern premises, welcoming to men and women, is dedicated to providing laser and electrolysis permanent hair removal.

Helen studied electrolysis permanent hair removal - at Victoria University TAFE College and has 15 years of experience, plus eight years’ experience as a laser therapist.

Former colleague Lyn Waugh has joined Helen to help with the increased demand for laser hair removal. Lyn’s experience as an enrolled nurse and laser therapist will enhance the clinic’s knowl-

edge about the medical conditions and medications that may be contra-indications for clients requiring hair removal. The Soprano Laser offers clients a more comfortable experience when treating large areas, with the in-motion, pain free, hair free option the only one of its kind in Geelong. All new clients are offered a free consultation and test patch to determine the most suitable treatment plan for them.

Feet fit for summer SUMMER means warm weather, holidays and increased outdoor activities, which also means more time on your feet, often barefoot or in thongs or slipon shoes. This can take a toll on your feet and legs. So what can you do to look after your feet and legs this summer? Sports podiatrist Dr David Kavanagh from Foot & Leg Pain Clinics, has some helpful tips to look after your feet and legs this summer. He says varying your footwear will help, because thongs, slip-ons and high heels can have an adverse effect if worn too much. “Sandals with little or no heel are often a good option as the straps hold the shoe to your feet so your feet and toes don’t have to do all the work,” he says. Going barefoot outside is not a bad thing but it does significantly increase the risk of foot injury, such as stepping on foreign objects or hot surfaces “Keep bare feet to when you’re at home, on safe surfaces or relaxing,” Dr Kavanagh suggests. “Many people take long walks in summer, but doing this barefoot, in thongs or slip-ons can be stressful to your feet and legs if you don’t wear appropriate footwear for exercise.” Dr Kavanagh suggests using a 30+ SPF sunscreen all over your feet and to get foot and leg pain checked. “Using the latest medical research and treatments, an experienced sports podiatrist can assist most foot and leg pain quickly and effectively.”

DESIGN TIME: Mini is crying out to get the John Cooper Works treatment. Stand by to see it after a huge launch at Detroit motor show.

Mini ready for revamp By EWAN KENNEDY MINI aims to make a big splash at the North American International Auto Show (almost invariably referred to simply as the Detroit Motor Show), by unveiling its all-new John Cooper Works Concept. Though it’s tagged as a concept there’s little doubt it will be close to being the real thing. The German-owned British brand is now in its third generation since its revival in 2002 and is larger than ever. The new Mini never was mini in the manner of the miniature 1959 Mini and has grown to maxi proportions. The usual excuses are given, crash protection needs more bodywork and people are getting larger than ever. Perhaps the reason for the huge Detroit show introduction is to prove that Americans (who these days are almost, but not quite, as large as Australians) can get comfortable inside a Mini. All four seats of the gen-three offer more space and as a bonus the boot has been expanded by 30 per cent. Wisely, the powers behind the scene issued instructions that the latest Mini should continue to look like a Mini. So in the manner of its main rivals, the VW Beetle and Fiat 500, the new generation Mini is evolutionary not revolutionary in its lines. We like it like that.

Compared with the standard new Mini and Cooper S, which are yet to go on sale in Australia, the JCW Cooper is sure to have an even bolder body kit, further advancing its street cred. Sadly, one striking feature of the Mini for the last 55 years has gone - the central speedometer. Introduced in 1959 to cut the costs and complexity of making the car with the steering wheel on the right or left, it was loved by all. Though it has to be said the drivers in a hurry didn’t like the speedo being visible to their wives... Though still big, bold and round, the speedo now sits in a conventional position directly in front of the driver. Its place in the centre of the dash has been taken over by an infotainment system. Details of the worked JCW engine have yet to be released, the standard Mini Cooper S manages a handy 141 kilowatts of power and 280 Newton metres of torque. Expect the JCW to go significantly higher on both counts. Standard versions of the new thirdgeneration Mini are expected in Australia in March or April 2014. No date has been set for the John Cooper Works to reach us downunder, but we trust it’s not too far down the track. On the subject, spy shots have been circulated on the internet of five-door hatch versions of the gen-three Mini.

IndySport Finals charge on in earnest CRICKET returns tomorrow after a two week Christmas break, with the Geelong Cricket Club well placed at the midpoint of the season to make a charge towards finals action. The young Cats squad played some excellent cricket in the first half of the season, and although they let some points slip in December throughout the Twenty20 part of the fixture, sixth place on the table is a fine effort thus far. With just five two-day games scheduled to complete the home and away season, Geelong travels to Greenvale tomorrow to take on the 13th placed Kangaroos. A win here could really set them on the right path, and with the twoday format appearing to favour them, the Cats should be hungry for success. The Geelong Cricket Association also resumes tomorrow, with a round of one-day matches scheduled, before the

four remaining two-day games prior to finals. The season has been fairly tight so far, with only North Geelong appearing certain to play finals. While a few other teams should make it, they still have some work to do, starting with second placed St Joseph’s hosting sixth placed Newtown and Chilwell in a very important game for both sides. Joeys can really cement their spot near the top of the table with a win here, something the likes of star players Dan-

iel Fanning and Leigh Kentish know all too well. Conversely, the Two Blues will be desperate to bring their best to the table, with a host of clubs nipping at their heels just outside the top six, hoping they falter here. Justin Maher and Cam Alford have had fine seasons thus far with the ball, but Newtown and Chilwell’s lack of batting depth could be the telling point in this one, as St Joseph’s will go in favourites. Geelong West v EAST BELMONT, NORTH GEELONG v Highton, Murgheboluc v GROVEDALE, Geelong City v SOUTH BARWON, Leopold v LARA In division two, the top six is starting to break away from the rest, with only seventh placed Torquay appearing a realistic chance of sneaking into the top six. The Tigers will get a good chance to do just that when they travel to Guild St

seasons in years. While Teesdale, Shelford and Inverleigh look to have enough points in the bank to be finalists, only one game separates fourth placed Bell Park from eighth placed Meredith. Throw in Bannockburn only one game further back, and it looks like being an exciting ride into the finals. This makes the clash between fifth placed Corio and Bannockburn virtually a mini final. Corio has been more consistent, which indicates it will go in favourites, but this division can throw up some strange results and with a number of outright wins expected between now and the end of the season, the finals jigsaw is far from complete. LETHBRIDGE v Shelford, MEREDITH v North Shore, CORIO v Bannockburn, Bell Park v LITTLE RIVER, Inverleigh v TEESDALE, Winchelsea bye.

Mary’s tomorrow, as the Saints are having a poor season, languishing in eleventh spot. For Torquay, Thomas Dunn and Andrew Murden have lead the way with the bat, while Callum Harding and Terry Hill each have 14 wickets to their names so far. The one man that stands in their way is Jeewan Desilva, the Guild St Mary’s spinner who is leading the league wicket tally with 21 scalps already. Still, it may be too much for one man to do it all, and Torquay should win. Alexander Thomson v BELL POST HILL, Waurn Ponds v NEWCOMB & DISTRICT, MANIFOLD HEIGHTS v St Peters, St Albans Breakwater v THOMSON, Modewarre v MARSHALL.

Summer’s sensational for saltwater action Lara boosts On the

bite Brian Long

SUMMER is the perfect time to hit the bays for some of the best saltwater action the region has to offer. Over the past few weeks whiting numbers and size has increased dramatically. While bag limit captures have not been common, areas such as the Bight at Queenscliff, Swan Bay entrance and St Leonards are all great destinations. Queenscliff to Swan Bay is consistent but you may need a number of shifts before you locate a shoal of fish. Once found, expect to be kept busy. This same area has been producing some huge pike of late. Trolling or casting small baitfish profile lures will soon have you hooked up to these aggressive fish. Inside the Swan Bay entrance we have seen some fantastic flathead taken on blue bait suspended below a small float and berley clearly results in better captures. This week the best flathead I saw taken was by Grant Marshall, a quality fish at 3.1kg. After dark in and around the Swan Bay entrance you can catch some nice gummy shark, with high tides producing better fishing with baits of fresh salmon and squid all that is needed. Young Joseph Walsh has been nailing a few quality gummy shark at this location lately, showing up his dad on most occasions. Salmon are always present in and around the Rip over the summer months. Surface action is a giveaway of the fish feeding but trolling with deep diving

BIG BITE: Geelong’s Joseph Walsh with one of his quality gummy shark taken at the entrance to Swan Bay. minnow pattern lures will soon have you hooked up while everyone else is waiting for the fish to push to the surface again. Casting soft plastics into the bust ups is my preference, Berkley minnows in the Casper Clear colour working best. Offshore reasonable numbers of flathead are being taken on the drift in 30 to 35 metres of water, this same depth has produced snapper along with a few school shark. Pushing out wider in 50 to 70 metres of water is where you will find both blue and mako shark, the later more prevalent. While at times they are a little fussy, generally they can be tempted with a small bait of just a single pilchard. Land based you can’t go past Black Rock near 13th Beach. Fishing the last two hours before dark will see you catch both snapper and whiting. Squid is the best bait and a light onshore southerly wind always improves your success.

Don’t discount salmon all along the coast - you do need to fish the rocks and not the beaches but on the high tides the salmon have consistently been herding the bait hard against the rock ledges. Many of the fish are under a kilogram but with numbers always comes the odd better fish. Snapper are readily available from the outer harbour spoil grounds at present; drifting and using soft plastics is the most productive method, and while most snapper are between 30 and 45cms they are easily caught using a variety of Gulp minnows and worms, with the pumpkinseed colour proving its worth. The inshore grass beds between Alcoa and Clifton Springs are producing plenty of quality pike to those trolling small bibbed lures. You do need to use shallow running lures otherwise you will constantly be hooking up on sea grass.

After dark seems to be the time to fish if you are looking for a big snapper around the Quarries area, with fresh pilchard the bait, although gummy shark is also a possibility at this time of the year. Whiting have started to make their presence felt close in at Bird Rock. First light is the time to hit this area and a little berley will bring the garfish on the bite. The spoil grounds in Stingaree Bay have seen good numbers of small snapper, although undersize fish are a problem. Use of larger size soft plastics and you will return with a nice feed. Trevalla while inconsistent have been present at Cunningham Pier, with the best captures early in the morning and chicken still the best bait to use. Finally as the Barwon River starts to clear the redfin are firing. Live minnow will catch you fish, it has been lure accounting for all the best reports. Small bibbed lures are what you will need with the area between Shannon Ave bridge and the Geelong Ring Road offering the best chances. Lake Tooliorook at Lismore is still your best location if you are looking to catch a trout or two on mudeye while redfin have been more readily caught at Moorabool Reservoir than trout. Ballarat’s Lake Wendouree has been popular and evening sorties did well for Craig Forbes on a mudeye pattern fly. With temperatures warming up expect to see kingfish showing up both in the Rip and offshore from Barwon Heads, pushing fish to the surface giving everyone an opportunity to catch this magnificent species.

soccer cup By PAUL MILLAR VICTORIAN soccer’s longest running cup competition will take on a new look at the end of this month with ambitious local side, Lara, joining the region’s elite clubs in the series. The cup competition, which has been running annually since 1981, will also have a new major sponsor with Diversitat combining with the City of Greater Geelong to back the series. Local soccer powerhouse North Geelong will host this year’s pre-season competition at its Elcho Park base, with the organising committee believing it was an ideal opportunity to freshen up the series by including near neighbour, Lara. Lara coach Dale Harris said it had been a surprise to be invited as a guest club into the competition. “It’s a real honour to get the chance to play against the best sides in Geelong, hopefully we can put on a good show,” the former Geelong Rangers coach said. “It will be a tough test for our players, we are not expecting miracles but it will let the side realise where we need to be,” Harris said. “We will be fighting tooth and nail in every game, but this is our first time in the cup and we are up against some of the biggest clubs in Geelong, who are all in higher leagues than us.” North Geelong will open the cup on its home patch with a tough match against Corio on 31 January. Long-time rivals Geelong and Geelong Rangers will start their tournament on 2 February with Bell Park to give Lara its first taste of cup competition in the second match of the twilight competition.
