Local road trauma surge worries TAC By JOHN VAN KLAVEREN

NEW NICK FOR FANS PAGE 17

SERIOUS injuries from road accidents jumped 50 per cent in City of Greater Geelong during the past two years, according to new Transport Accident Commission statistics. Injuries involving an acute hospital stay of more than 14 days increased from 26 in 2011 and 28 in 2012 to 39 in 2013. Surf Coast recorded a steep decrease in serious injuries, with three reported in 2013 after a high of 12 in 2011, down 75 per cent. TAC chief Janet Dore said she was concerned that hospitalisations for

more than 14 days had been increasing in Greater Geelong over the past three years even though overall injuries were down. “Many people view the road toll as the measure of road trauma but we must also consider the thousands of Victorians who are seriously injured on the roads each year,” Ms Dore said. “Last year Geelong’s road toll fell quite significantly but, unfortunately, we still find ourselves in a situation where dozens of lives have been seriously affected by injuries resulting from road accidents.” Ms Dore said reducing serious in-

juries was a key goal of State Government’s road safety strategy. “Our vision is for every Victorian’s journey to be a safe one.” Geelong remained on par for fatalities, with 11 for each of the past two years to November, in line with its five year average of 11. The TAC hopes a new campaign calling on young regional Victorians to put safety first when shopping for first cars will help reduce injuries. The How Safe is Your Car campaign is aimed at summer holidays when young Victorians scan used car markets for their first vehicles before

starting studies or jobs. Victorian assistant treasurer Gordon Rich-Phillips said road trauma could be reduced if young drivers chose cars with four or five-star safety ratings. “Vehicle safety has come a long way in recent years and people need to be aware that many modern safety features can be found in affordable second-hand cars,” Mr Rich-Phillips said. Young drivers and their parents could use tools like howsafeisyourcar. com.au to find safe, affordable vehicles in every car class, he said. 200W Smart Media Player With Direct iPod™/iPhone™ Control SKU ME17109

STABBED: A Facebook image of Jason Trickey in hospital.

A 41-YEAR-old man stabbed and bashed at North Geelong last weekend is facing assault charges over a previous alleged incident. Jason Trickey, recovering in Geelong Hospital from the brutal attack, is listed for a contest mention in Geelong Magistrates’ Court on 18 February. A court spokesman told the Independent the charges related to assault. The matter was adjourned after a previous mention mid-January, the spokesman said. Mr Trickey this week posted on Facebook photographs from his hospital bed, wearing a neck-

brace and saying “Gotta learn to walk before you run ... ”. He did not respond to phone messages from the Independent. The Independent believes police are investigating an 18-yearold Geelong man’s Facebook posting of threats against Mr Trickey and bragging about assaulting him. Mr Trickey also posted Facebook images of facial bruises sustained late last year after an undisclosed incident. In the latest incident, six or seven youths reportedly assaulted him after breaking into his Thompson Rd home.

Redevelopment plans line up for city centre By JOHN VAN KLAVEREN AND PAUL MILLAR CITY Hall is considering 28 planning permit applications for central Geelong, councillor Michelle Heagney has revealed. The increase number of applications coincides with council this week unanimously approving a 15-year blueprint to revive the city centre. The central Geelong action plan aims to increase the city centre’s population from 4200 to 10,000. “The most significant current application relates to the redevelopment

of the National Hotel at the corner of Moorabool and Little Ryrie streets,� said Cr Heagney, who holds council’s central Geelong portfolio. “We are also having pre-application meetings with developers relating to other potential developments within the central Geelong precinct.� Cr Heagney said the introduction of an Activity Centre Zone in May this year had opened up potential for significant redevelopments of central Geelong and its “Western Wedge� precinct. “The introduction of the Activity Centre Zone has reduced restrictions

on heights of buildings in strategic locations. The effect of the zone has been to remove the previous four and six-storey height limits. “In pockets of central Geelong and the Western Wedge there is now no prescribed height limit, provided other criteria are met there is no limit to building height. “The Activity Centre Zone is designed to foster appropriate development, including residential apartments in Central Geelong and the Western Wedge,� she said. Mayor Darryn Lyons planned to present the central Geelong action

plan to Premier Denis Napthine during state coalition election strategy meetings in the city this week. The plan aims to attract investment, create employment opportunities and encourage more people to make the heart of the town their home. Initiatives include reducing ground-floor property vacancy rates to five per cent, increasing the number of people working in central Geelong from 21,000 to 30,000, lifting its student population from 4500 to 10,000 and converting 25 per cent of lowgrade office building space to high grade or residential use.

Siblings celebrate kidney milestone with donors call By JOHN VAN KLAVEREN BARRY Freeman has carried a kidneyshaped piece of sister Judy Mathe with him for the past 25 years. The pair celebrated the 25th anniversary of the transplant recently, hoping to encourage others to register for organ and tissue donation during DonateLife Week. “It was a big deal for us then,� Judy reflected. “Back then medical procedures weren’t so advanced but it’s like putting a Band-Aid on these days.� Barry was diagnosed with juvenile diabetes at the age of 12 but lived a full and active life until his kidney suddenly failed at 40. “The diabetes diagnosis was a bolt out of the blue because there was no family history of it,� Judy said. “Barry had his own earthmoving business but it all came to a halt when his kidney shut down, so I did a lot of preliminary testing to make sure we were compatible before I told him I was going to donate my kidney. “He asked me whether I was sure, I told him he would do it for me and that’s really the only consideration we took.� The surgery, at Prince Henry’s Hospital, was uncomplicated and Barry made a complete recovery, although he still suffers some effects of the diabetes. “It means I’m still here walking around,� Barry said. “It frightened the hell out of me when she suggested it but it has made such a difference to me. “It was like turning a light switch on. I was feeling crook before and when I came out of it I felt that much better, almost instantly. “What she did for me was fantastic. I owe her for the rest of my life.� Judy said she hoped the story would encourage young people to be organ donors and to discuss their wishes with their family. DonateLife Week runs from 23 February to 2 March.

In brief Man killed POLICE are continuing to investigate the death of a Bell Post Hill man, 30, when a car hit him near Colac early Sunday. Police said the man was struck on the Princes Hwy at 12.30am, leaving the 24-year-old female driver with minor injuries.

Pool closed A PUMP breakdown has forced City Hall to close Eastern Beach’s pool for health reasons. Officers expected the pool to reopen Wednesday after signs warned swimmers to stay clear amid some of the hottest weather of summer so far on Tuesday.

Prosecutor appointed GEELONG will have its own permanent Crown prosecutor to take on the lawyers of alleged lawbreakers, the Office of Public Prosecutions has announced. A spokesperson said the appointment of barrister Justin Lewis, pictured, from mid-year, would replace an existing system of Melbournebased prosecutors rotated through Geelong annually.

Flag first THE Australia flag has made its first appearance on a series of 30 poles that usually fly flags without the national insignia at the entrance to Geelong in Corio. Mayor Darryn Lyons launched the flags for the duration of the Australia Day long weekend as a “great welcome for visitors�.

Fair day A WHITTINGTON community centre will host a fair and open day next week to engage its surrounding community. Bellarine Living and Learning Centre said activities would include children’s entertainment, stalls and other activities from 4pm to 6pm, Wednesday at 20 Worden Crt.

Surfers dumped TWO teams of local surfers have failed to overcome star-studded interstate line-ups at the Australian Boardriders Battle in New South Wales. Torquay and 13th Beach boardriders clubs finished 12th and 13th respectively at the Cronulla event, which Snapper Rocks Surfriders won with members including world champions Stephanie Gilmour and Joel Parkinson.

Kinder boost A LARA kindergarten has received a financial windfall at the start of the school year, MP David Koch has announced. He said a $10,000 grant for Goodstart Early Learning would help cover minor capital works on an outdoor play area.

Coast parking shake-up threatens ‘disaster’

address the issues but I don’t want to see any restriction on parking because it will impact our members.” Mr Mathews suggested a residential parking permit could help solve some of the issues, with beachgoers parking in nearby streets when beachside car parks were full. Restrictions would force club members and volunteers to leave allday surfing events during summer so they could move their cars to avoid infringements, he said. Surf Coast Mayor Rose Hodge welcomed the survey as the “start of a good discussion”. “It will be interesting to hear the

survey result and it may guide council as well,” Cr Hodge said. “We would be interested in working with GORCC to see where people can safely park. It is worth exploring and costing. “We all know how bad it is at times.” Cr Hodge said the shire office’s staff car park could possibly accommodate a park-and-ride service. “It would have to be a very good service, especially on such hot days as we’ve recently experienced.” Cr Hodge confirmed only council parking inspectors could enforce limits or restrictions on beach parking.

GIFT PACKAGES AVAILABLE... MAKING A SPLASH: Conner Ramsay, Rochelle Zahra and Liam Curmi take the plunge at Eastern Beach during Tuesday’s sweltering weather. 113774 Picture: REG RYAN

Weather puts heat on beer, ice vendors LOCAL residents took a breather from the sweltering conditions this week but will need a second wind to survive the weekend, with the mercury set to bubble over 40C again on Sunday. It will be time to head for the shade and stay close to the refrigerator, which will be a bonus for Victorian brewers. Statistics show that beer sales vary about two per cent for every 1C

change in temperature. Jenny Christie, from Mr Cool Ice, said her company was flat-out meeting demand during the recent hot spell. “It was unbelievable but we just managed to keep up with it,” she said. “We were doing about 20 tonnes a day or more, for four day.” The family business usually sells about six tonnes of ice. Geelong Weather Services’ Lindsay Smail expected 42C on the last

day of January, which he said was not unusual for the month in Victoria. Geelong’s long-term overall average maximum temperature for January was 25.1C but this year it was closer to 28C, he said. However, in January 1908 the long-term average high was 31.5C and 1961’s average maximum was 29.1C. “We’re looking at the top end of the scale but it’s not unusual for this time of the year,” Mr Smail said.

Boy robbed at bus stop POLICE are hunting a man who allegedly robbed a boy of his BMX bike at a Geelong bus stop days before Christmas. Police alleged the man pushed the teenager off his bike before fleeing down Ryrie St with the bike around 9.15pm on 20 December. Police described the man as Caucasian, about 25 years old with a slim build and short brown hair. He was wearing a brown T-shirt and brown cargo pants with side pockets at the time of the alleged robbery. Victoria Police released on Wednesday an image of a man they want to question over the incident. Police said the GT BMX bike had brown handle bars, a blue frame and a gold and black-chequered seat. Police said anyone with information could “confidentially” report it online at crimestoppers.com.au or phone 1800 333 000.

Pacific Africa operations off record sales of 1.34 million vehicles Ford will pay record profit-sharing cheques averaging $8800 to workers in North America and hire additional staff. The strong Asian Pacific results contrasted what the company described as “unfavourable results in Australia as Ford restructures the

business and reflects the effects of a weakening Australian dollar”. Ford’s overall operations posted a record pre-tax profit of $8.6 billion. Ford president and chief executive officer Alan Mulally said the company had an “outstanding year in 2013” with “solid results and profitable growth for all”.

“We are well-positioned for another solid year in 2014,” he said. Earlier this month Ford unveiled a new all-aluminium F-150, the world’s top-selling truck, at the Detroit Auto Show, highlighting a ground-breaking deal to make aluminium cars in the US with Alcoa, which is also at risk of closing in Geelong.

A PROPOSED time limit on Torquay beach car parks has received a mixed response from surfers, businesses and council. The Independent revealed last week that Great Ocean Road Coast Committee (GORCC) had mooted time limits on car parks, parking attendants and a park-and-ride system as solutions to the Surf Coast’s annual beach parking congestion. The committee suggested the options in a report on coastal transport and is seeking community feedback. Torquay Commerce and Tourism

president Barrie Sutherland said parking restrictions would be an unnecessary “disaster”. “Let the market forces take care of it. It is bureaucracy gone mad,” Mr Sutherland said. “People in Torquay enjoy the benefits of visitors and I’m sure we can live with a few inconveniences.” Torquay Boardriders president Dave Mathews said the club opposed beach parking restrictions. “I understand residents may be concerned that streets get clogged with beachgoers and you can find it frustrating to get a park sometimes. “I can understand GORCC want to

By PAUL MILLAR PREMIER Denis Napthine has told Geelong’s leaders to prioritise their funding wish-list based on value for money. He delivered a pre-election pep talk to his parliamentary team in Geelong this week in preparation for November’s state election. Dr Napthine addressed the media on Geelong’s waterfront metres from where outspoken Mayor Darryn Lyons wants a pier built to berth cruise ships. Cr Lyons has demanded up to $25million in state funding for the pier, to take advantage of a booming international cruise ship

WE DO IT ALL!! DON’T MISS OUT CALL US NOW

market. He said the pier would attract nine cruise ships a year, worth $1 million each to Geelong’s economy. Dr Napthine met community and business leaders including Cr Lyons during the visit, saying he was prepared to listen to proposals. Funding for the pier, city centre revitalisation, a convention centre, further redevelopment of Kardinia Park and other projects had already been raised, he said. “We need a clear, unequivocal view from the mayor and the Geelong community about where their priorities lie. “We have a good track record for supporting Geelong in a

number of projects … we have to see is what is the best value for money.” Cr Lyons said he would deliver a prioritised wish list. “I’ll be giving him the grand plan but I also realise that it won’t all be done at once.” Cr Lyons believed the government should take the past into account when looking to Geelong’s future. “The former premier, Jeff Kennett, delivered a $30 million investment in the Geelong waterfront ... it needs to be done again,” Cr Lyons said. “The Yarra St pier is a priority but it has to be more than that to attract private investment.”

ATMs out, losses rise ATM ban but could be attributed to a lower number of machines in operation at the time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Government allowed EFTPOS machines in venues and it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t changed the interaction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After the poker machine licence auction there were a number of machines not in circulation but theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re coming back online now, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing an increase in spend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This (ATM ban) has not solved the issue of problem gambling. The Government has fiddled around the edges. It is not unexpected that the figures would climb.â&#x20AC;? Cr Farrell said poker machine losses were still a major issue in Geelong, particularly in under-resourced areas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The council is working as much as it can around planning uses but the bulk of the decision-making lies with State Government.â&#x20AC;? Anti-pokies crusader Paul Bendat said a new campaign would seek to introduce a commitment to a $1 bet limit, ensuring gamblers could lose a maximum of $120 an hour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The 1-120 initiative was recognised by the productivity commission as workable to reduce problem gambling without affecting recreational gamblers,â&#x20AC;? Mr Bendat said.

Hot stuff when rods shining at Queenscliff By MICHELLE HERBISON MORE than 1200 cars from around Australia will descend on Queenscliff this Sunday for an annual Geelong Street Rodders show-and-shine event. Club member and 1956 Chevrolet owner Gary James said Princess Park would host an impressive array of hot rods and classic cars on view for the general public from 10am. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hot Rods are classified as pre-1948

and then post-â&#x20AC;&#x2122;48 to â&#x20AC;&#x2122;67 are custom classics and later model cars are special interest vehicles like Corvettes and Mustangs,â&#x20AC;? Mr James said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The oldest would be 1923 and they go up into the early â&#x20AC;&#x2122;80s. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mixture of everything.â&#x20AC;? All funds raised through the eventâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $5 entry fee would be divided between selected charities, with the event expected to raise an amount similar to last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $30,000.

The Queenscliff Rod Run event was the yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main event for Geelong Street Roddersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 90-plus members, Mr James said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Come along and enjoy it and take in the spectacular cars of all different colours. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a lot of bling, a lot of chrome. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some wives say the cars are looked after better than them.â&#x20AC;? Geelong Street Rodders began in 1973 as an enthusiastsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; club for owners of American-origin vehicles.

GEELONG pokie players lost an extra $100,000 despite the removal of ATMs from local gaming venues, according to Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation figures. Geelong gamblers lost $46.8 million between July and November 2012 but their losses climbed to $46.9 million between July and November 2013. The ATM ban came into effect in July 2012 but cash withdrawals were available by EFTPOS, capped at $200 but without a limit on the number of withdrawals. State Government had hailed the ATM ban as an â&#x20AC;&#x153;outstanding successâ&#x20AC;? that led to problem gamblers â&#x20AC;&#x153;significantly reducing their spending on gaming machinesâ&#x20AC;?. Minister for Liquor and Gaming Regulation Edward Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donohue said the removal of ATMs from Victorian gaming venues was highly effective in reducing risky gambling behaviour. But councillor Jan Farrell, who holds a community safety porfolio on Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s council, â&#x20AC;&#x153;categorically rejectedâ&#x20AC;? Mr Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donohueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claim. Cr Farrell said poker machine losses dipped after the introduction of the

MINISTER: Peter Walsh.

Water board in new cuts order By JOHN VAN KLAVEREN STATE Government has asked Barwon Water to become more efficient despite already cutting costs by up to 11 per cent after an efficiency review. Water Minister Peter Walsh said the Government was launching a “major reform to lower household water bills”. The Government’s Fairer Water Bills campaign would deliver “efficiencies and system-wide cost reductions”, he said. The campaign would require water corporations to review financial and asset management, procurement practices and shared services to find savings for customers. “A typical Melbourne household using 165 kilolitres of water per year has seen bills go from around $500 to around $1200 per year because of decisions like the north-south pipeline and the Wonthaggi desalination plant,” Mr Walsh said.

“I believe there is scope for significant productivity and efficiency gains in the urban water sector that will translate to future savings on household water bills.” Mr Walsh said the Government had asked regional and metropolitan urban water corporations to identify and provide advice on efficiency gains. The feedback would be subjected to an independent review for the Government to establish efficiency goals for each corporation. Mr Walsh said a review would reduce regulatory burden and red tape for water corporations. Barwon Water’s new efficiency targets will take effect from 1 July. Chairman Michael King said Barwon Water initiated the earlier efficiency and productivity review in December 2011. “The purpose was to identify corporate and operational savings that would keep down future

prices for residential and business customers. “The review has led to annual savings of between 10 and 11 per cent. “These savings have allowed Barwon Water’s Board to deliver price cuts of 1.6 per cent, excluding CPI, every year for five years, from 2013 to 2018. “The savings have been achieved by reducing operational costs, implementing process improvements and changes to service delivery, with no impact on customer service levels. “In addition, there have been several management restructures and a number of employees have taken up the offer of voluntary redundancy. “While there have already been significant gains in efficiency and productivity, Barwon Water’s board will continue to investigate cost savings that put downward pressure on household water bills.”

Lights camera ‘a fines leader’

A CONTROVERSIAL red light camera at the intersection of The Boulevard and Melbourne Rd, Norlane, is a state hotspot for infringements, according to Justice Department comparisons. The intersection has the fourth highest number of red light infringements in the state. A comparison of the 20 top busiest red light cameras lists the site as recording 1093 infringements. The intersection of Flinders and William streets, Melbourne, recorded the highest number of infringements with 2141. All other top 20 busiest red light cameras were also in Melbourne. The Norlane intersection was upgraded a year ago after the construction of a Bunnings store nearby. The high number of infringements has prompted motorists to write to the Independent complaining the turn arrow allows insufficient time to cross the fourlane intersection. They have called on VicRoads to check the timing and say they now avoided the intersection. The Independent revealed in December that the camera was

Short stretch, big haul

MOTORISTS on the Princes Freeway between Lara and Little River are more likely to be fined for speeding than drivers anywhere else in the state, according to new figures. The speed camera statistics reveal that more than 7000 motorists were clocked speeding on the section over a threemonth period. A camera on the Point Wilson bridge at Little River recorded 2497 offences on the

three Melbourne-bound lanes. Avalon bridge cameras, at Lara, snapped 2399 Melbourne-bound speedsters and a further 2352 headed to Geelong. A camera at Point Cook snapped 4089 drivers speeding on the way toward Geelong. All four cameras were in the state’s top 10, with the Melbourne lanes of the Princes Fwy at Point Cook catching 4986 speeding motorists between July and September.

slugging motorists $400,000 every three months. The intersection’s fines rose to $408,246 for the September quarter, up almost $17,000 on the previous three months as motorists copped $361 fines and three demerit points. Twelve months ago the intersection collected $67,726. Susan Spokes wrote to the Independent earlier this month saying she was “infuriated” with her fine and described the camera as revenue-raising. North Geelong’s Robert Derksen said he hoped “something

may be done” if enough motorists complained. Rippleside’s Fran and Rolf Kohnert were “horrified” by their “hefty” fine and a notification they entered the intersection nine seconds into a red light. “We are both fiercely against anyone who would run a red light and would never do anything like this, especially as nine seconds represents over 100 metres.” Norlane West’s Alan Marshall suggested every driver fined for attempting the turn from Bunnings into Melbourne Rd should contest their infringement notice.

Volunteers ‘help chick take flight’ TWENTY volunteers have helped nurture the first endangered hooded plover chick to flying stage at Ocean Grove in almost 40 years. Councillor Andy Richards praised the BirdLife Australia

volunteers for their “amazing job”. The volunteer “wardens” explained to beach users the importance of watching out for the chick’s safety, he said. “This chick shows that endangered spe-

cies can coexist and survive in areas of high use when people work together. “If we continue to work together hopefully more chicks will be able to reach the flying stage.”

Letters Limits dog of an idea TO FREE up spaces in coastal parking, I do not believe it is a good idea to put time limits on spaces (Independent, 24 January). If this happens the restrictions will have to be enforced to ensure the time limits are effective. We already have dogs-on-beaches regulations at Torquay. Many people walk their dogs on the beach after work and carry leashes while the dogs run free without anyone checking up on this breaking of council bylaws. Who would pay for people to police time limit regulations? Would our rates have to be increased? Meters should not be an option. People should not have to pay to enjoy what God provides for free. Enough space already exists for people to stay freely for as long as they want. If there is no room, they can park further afield and walk. When it is busy, some people already park in the supermarket car park for two hours to enjoy the beach. Anne Box Torquay

Tatts a big mistake I CONGRATULATE the Independent for not following the push of another newspaper to have young people and children wear fake tattoos. It took long enough to get the sale of fake cigarettes in the form of cigarette lollies stopped because it was deemed to encourage young children to take up smoking. The other newspaper made a grave error in its encouragement of young people to have tattoos. Bob Thompson Ocean Grove

Giddy up, people WE HEAR plenty of knockers about what our new mayor should or should not be doing but what can we, the people, do, starting in our own backyards. My suggestions are: Clean up your yard, put out the rubbish, pot a few plants and paint your home’s facade to make your home the best in your street; Put an old-fashioned fernery at the back or side of your home to keep it cooler, save on water and provide a cool space on hot days; Form a credit cooperative or, even better, a Geelong bank owned by the people to finance the repair of guttering, pavements and roads;

More support needed for Leopold vision GIVEN project similarities, why can’t Planning Minister Mathew Guy, (Werribee Star 23/7/13) having fast tracked Wyndham Harbour’s expansion (Werribee Star, 23 January), be equally proactive with Dennis More’s proposed Leopold Tourism & Leisure Park? While it’s great to see the $440 million boating, commercial and residential Wyndham initiative gain governance support, unless the Napthine Coalition steps in and gives More’s project a serious bunkup it will be stymied by City of Greater Geelong glacial red tape. The much-maligned Mr More has put on the table a

PLAN HARBOURED: Dennis More at the site of his proposed Leopold development. $336 million, 82-hectare bayfrontage concept incorporating a marina, a caravan park, residential accommodation options, cafes and restaurants

Geelong Road Builders to train young un· Form employed men in building roads, bridges, footpaths and guttering;

For once, Geelong, get off your collective butts and make a contribution instead of moaning and expecting others to do it for you. As US president John F. Kennedy said: “Ask not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country”. Giddy up and do it for Geelong – we might even enjoy the journey. Pam Clark Belmont

Growth up the Creek WITH governments and big business alike so committed to population growth, it is inevitable more homes will burn as we extend further and further into bushland. This is another concerning side-effect of Australia’s high-immigration-and-growth-at-any-cost poli-

and is deserving of a fair go. It’s not as though bucket loads of government subsidies are required but rather a stream-lining, can-do rezoning process. Given local job losses, a prediction of 1800 employment opportunities during the construction phase and a further 200-plus permanent jobs upon completion further supports the case for Mr Guy to replicate his proactive Wyndham Harbour policy at Leopold, which potentially offers a win-win outcome and for which there is a good deal of public support.

Choose health over jobs SURF Coast residents and visitors have a choice to make: they can do nothing and stay part of a divided community poisoned each day by Alcoa’s coal operations on the edge of Anglesea or they can work together to enhance what attracted them to the area in the first place. Some argue that Alcoa was here first and has created lots of jobs for the region. But the negative health concerns of mining and burning coal have recently come to light in peer-reviewed medical and scientific peer-reviewed studies. These concerns centre around the emission of sulphur dioxide plus fine particles over the district from the power plant’s smoke stack. Do we really want to encourage jobs for some locals that impact on the health of others? I hope not. It appears Alcoa will close its operations at Point Henry. It will be interesting to see how much it contributes to the considerable costs of cleaning up the site. History suggests it will be little, if anything.

Email: editorial@geelongindependent.com.au PO Box 407, Geelong, 3220 Fax: 5249 6799

Given what we know now about climate change, it will be a crime if Alcoa is allowed to continue operating the power plant as a stand-alone unit feeding into the grid. Surf Coast Air Action (SCAA) has an alternative vision for the Surf Coast; one that will create jobs, have positive health benefits for residents and visitors and unite a divided community. Readers can contribute to the discussion and become part of the solution at SCAA’s Facebook page or its website, surfcoastairaction.org. Anthony Gleeson Newtown

Cowboys raid the bush DEPARTMENT of Environment and Primary Industry (DEPI) recently began preparing for a planned bushfire in the Anglesea Heath National Estate and adjacent to the Anglesea River. As part of the preparations, DEPI used a logloader - a heavy track excavator with a large claw attached to the arm - to drive through a small tributary to the Anglesea River then crash through several hundred metres of healthy woodland including a steep area undergoing revegetation. The path taken was behind heavy steel ropes supported by numerous large concrete posts with plaques attached stating: ‘Revegetation Area - Keep Off’. The log-loader, the size of a bulldozer, did considerable damage, all for the purposes of pushing over one medium-sized tree fire damaged by a previous planned bushfire. The new planned bushfire will cause still further damage. The tree is unlikely to have fallen across the track and could have been chainsawed, causing less damage than a log-loader. The community spends hundreds of hours of voluntary work removing weeds and then replanting the area only to have the work destroyed by new DEPI planned bushfires, which are not based on sound science and do not protect the community. Additionally, the area is home to echidnas, which move slowly, tending to push under low vegetation when disturbed and which will be killed by the planned bushfire. The Victorian Government needs to urgently review its obsession with planned bushfires and either halt the program completely or at least reign the DEPI cowboys. Stephen Chenery Winchelsea

Basically we just go ‘round to the drummer’s spare room, run through the songs two or three times - hardly any prep - then just go straight in (to record),” Barker explained. “It sounds really pure to me - they don’t sound like they’ve been overwritten.” After some recent work took a mellow, country-rock direction aiming to gain greater mass appeal, Barker was proud of his new carefree style, inspired by his music-making maxim, “What would Neil do?”. “I could imagine Neil Young and Crazy Horse making records in a ragged way. “I just love the way he never steers a

straight course. That’s my thing now.” Barker was on a mission to reinvigorate his love of music after 30 years in the business, having started out in the ’80s with Nick Barker and the Reptiles and later as a soloist. “I’m really sick of a lot of what I’ve been playing. For my sanity I’ve got to move on. “You can end up doing a lot of gigs that aren’t particularly spiritually enlightening and your ego can take a kicking. You know, you might play three sets and there’s a footy game on TV. “It doesn’t inspire you to pick up your guitar during the week - you can become a misery guts.” Barker and his band will unleash their new music at the inaugural Motor City Music Festival at Geelong Showgrounds on 7 to 9 March.

IRRESISTIBLY delicious homemade slices from central Geelong’s Café Lorae make for the perfect morning or afternoon treat. The café’s slice extraordinaire, Jo Rabbas, prepares a selection of more than 20 varieties including lime and white chocolate, Malteser, white fruit and nut, ginger, peppermint, Clinker and Malteser, maple and Chokito. Anyone with a sweet tooth will love Café Lorae’s delicious and unique selection. Owner Damian says he and Jo took over the established café, at 84 Moorabool St, in March

and have since brought their own touches to the business. “We’re trying to build on the existing defined base and let more people know we’re around and are centrally located. “Making the slices in-house is something that’s unique to us because it’s not something that a lot of other businesses focus on.” Café Lorae offers coffee and slice deals as well as small and large variety packs of slices starting at just $2.50. Customers will enjoy relaxing in the café’s warm and friendly environment, catching up with friends between shopping trips

New path to Deakin MELBOURNE Institute of Business and Technology (MIBT) is an alternative pathway into Deakin University. MIBT diplomas in commerce, computing, engineering, media and communications, health sciences, management and science lead into over 40 undergraduate degree programs at Deakin. Atway Akec, an MIBT commerce student at the Waterfront Campus, says he never thought he would be able to even go to university because he had chosen to complete a VCAL instead of the VCE in his final year of high school. “MIBT has given me the confidence that I never really had before. I’m confident in my abilities and I have no doubt that my future now looks brighter,” Atway says.

“Before MIBT, I wouldn’t have even dreamed of saying that.” Equivalent to Deakin’s firstyear bachelor degrees, MIBT students study the same units but with extra contact time, smaller class sizes and a superior level of academic support and preparation for university life. “To study at Deakin will be an honour, let alone to graduate and receive a degree from the university,” Atway says. “It is definitely my long-term goal to graduate from Deakin and MIBT is helping me get there.” Located on Deakin’s campuses, MIBT offers students full access to the university’s facilities and services. More information about MIBT is available at mibt.vic. edu.au or by phoning 9244 5600.

MIBT is helping students like Atway Akec into Deakin University courses.

ONE World recognises that children between the ages of three and five years may need the added opportunity to attend a preschool group with their peers and participate in a program catering specifically to their changing needs. Therefore, in addition to its family grouping facility, One World Children’s Centre also provides a pre-kinder program for three year-olds, and a funded four year-old kindergarten program. Attending the three year-old pre-kinder program has the added benefit of preparing your child for the transition into the preschool year. The three year-old program ensures a child’s growing independence is fostered and their selfawareness and self-esteem nurtured. They will also be provided with developmentally appropriate activities and experiences for further challenge and will be encouraged to explore relationships with others in a supportive and safe environment. The four-year-old kindergarten year is preparation for transition to primary school so it’s important in your child’s development.

One World prepares children for school. As your preschool child progresses towards school age, he or she will require more challenges in experiences and more complexity in relationships to prepare for the transition to school and a lifetime of learning. In the year before your child starts primary school, One World’s highly experienced kindergarten teachers Catherine and Ann Marie, through their daily work, will help your child to prepare for this exciting and new world.

03 HOlDEN VY ACClAIM WAgON protection devices ensured the CLAClass had no trouble getting a maximum five-star rating in barrier crash testing. As can be the case in any highly tuned performance car the CLA 45 AMG can be temperamental at very low speeds. The engine takes a few moments to get wound up to decent revs and the double-clutch gearbox can take its time as well. The result can be irritating when you’re crawling along in seemingly endless traffic jams. Those who want the image of owning a hotrod Merc AMG but who aren’t really interested in driving should possibly look elsewhere. To be on the safe side, take the car for a decent test drive before settling on it and see what you think. We were extremely impressed by the road grip and exceptional cornering ability. This car has the sort of cornering grip, steering wheel feel and throttle control that is guaranteed to bring smiles to the faces of all of us who really love driving yet it retains more comfort than you would expect from a highly-strung sports machine. That’s amazing. Best of all is the exhaust note. The baby Benz hotshot spits, snarls and generally carries on when thrashed hard; just the way it should be in any high-performance car, particularly one that’s powered by a small turbocharged engine.

MERCEDES-BENZ has added yet enough model to its AMG hotrod range. The hot version of the CLA-Class is the 45 AMG model. The CLA 45 AMG is a great looking machine with a neatly integrated body kit to enhance its high-performance credentials. Though every external panel of the CLA 45 coupe is different from those on the A 45 hatch, the two vehicles share pretty much the same overall style. Our road test car had black trim that was highlighted by raised red stitching which looked just right for a car like this. As the CLA is a coupe the back seat has limited headroom; somehow this doesn’t matter as much in the AMG sports model as it does in the standard cars. The boot is a large and easy to load. The AMG engineers have squeezed 265 kilowatts of power from a 2.0-litre four-cylinder high-pressure turbopetrol engine. That’s an amazing 355 horsepower in muscle cars terms, and the CLA 45 AMG is most definitely a compact muscle car. In normal driving all the power goes only through the front wheels, the rear wheels are brought into action within a tenth of a second when the computer senses the front tyres are suffering from engine overload. Driven correctly any high-performance car is safer than the standard model on which it’s based. That’s due to its improved chassis and braking dynamics, as well as its ability to accelerate out of trouble if that’s the correct way of doing it. Avoiding crashes and/or minimising their dangers is carried out by everything from driver drowsiness warnings to radar detection of potential crashes. There’s automatic lane keeping and blind spot warning systems. A complete range of occupant

IndySport Cats chase early Blues wickets GEELONG Cricket Club finds itself in a precarious position going into day two of its match against Carlton on Saturday. The Cats rode a rollercoaster last week, starting brightly after being sent in by Carlton at the Geelong cricket ground. All of the four Geelong batsmen at the top order made scores in the teens but, with regular wickets falling, at 9/72 the game was almost lost half way through day one. A gutsy last wicket stand of 69 by bowlers Marc Carson (20) and Jake Reed (47) helped the team through to a respectable 141. The pair then continued their form into their bowling, claiming two early wickets each to see the visitors scrabbling at 4/23. An 89-run stand then followed but, with two late wickets to Reed (4/23), the Blues finished the day on 6/117. It goes without saying that Geelong’s only chance is a couple of early wickets to have any hope

Local

cricket Jim Timberlake

of winning and remaining in the upper reaches of the ladder. In Geelong Cricket Association, it looks like the cream is rising to the top, with the top six nearly settled after Geelong West pulled off an amazing outright result against top-placed North Geelong. That means a 10-point gap opens up between the top six and seventh-placed Newtown & Chilwell. With West taking on Lara this game, a win there will almost kill off the challenger. Meanwhile, the match of the round looks like being between the top two sides, North Geelong and St Joseph’s.

Both have showed some indifferent form of late but there is no doubt the influx of quality players into both camps this season means this game will be of a high standard. The fact that North Geelong probably relies on fewer players to get the bulk of the scoring done means that Joeys will go in slightly favoured to win. Selections: ST JOSEPH’S v North Geelong, GEELONG WEST v Lara, Murgheboluc v HIGHTON, Geelong City v NEWTOWN & CHILWELL, Leopold v GROVEDALE, EAST BELMONT v South Barwon. In division two, top-placed Bell Post Hill takes on St Albans Breakwater in a game that many might predict to be a grand final preview. Both sides are in good form, particularly the Panthers who haven’t lost since round four thanks to a strong bowling line-up and some good batsmen in form. The Saints, on the other hand, have been up and down, amazingly having two outright wins and three

losses from their past six games. It might depend on which St Albans Breakwater team turns up here but you would have to think Bell Post Hill is too solid to let this one slip. Other selections: Alexander Thomson v WAURN PONDS, Guild St Mary’s v MARSHALL, MANIFOLD HEIGHTS v Newcomb & District, MODEWARRE v St Peter’s, Torquay v Thomson. In division three, Teesdale looks to have top spot sewn up but this week’s opponent, Winchelsea, will have to be at its best to hold its spot in the top six. The Blues are fifth but, with sixth-placed Corio playing North Shore and seventh-placed Little River guaranteed six points with the bye, a loss here would be disastrous. Teesdale had the bye last round, meaning it will be nicely freshened for this one and should be too good. Other selections: Lethbridge v MEREDITH, CORIO v North Shore, BELL PARK v Shelford, INVERLEIGH v Bannockburn, Little River bye.

Whiting biting as long weekend brings out a flotilla On the

bite Brian Long

FANTASTIC conditions over the long weekend attracted massive numbers of boats onto the water, with a many reports of captures as a consequence. Many anglers chased the whiting, with Queenscliff to St Leonards hosting the best action for many weeks. Terry McMahon easily caught his bag limit on pippies at the entrance to Swan Bay on first light. Guy Stevens also fished Swan Bay for a bag-limit catch in only 90 minutes. A shift out to deeper water soon produced a nice bag of flathead as well. Troy Martin and James Miller drifted the edge of the Coles Channel where they caught flathead as well as over a dozen whiting and three snapper around 1.5kg. Salmon kept anglers busy around The Rip area. Many shoals were holding deep, requiring the use of a downrigger, which soon had the O’Toole brothers constantly hooking up on salmon to better than 1.5kg. Kingfish reports had been limited until Tony Fitzgerald and Stan Toll fished wide of the Portsea Hole last weekend, catching five fish but only keeping the largest, a 4.2kg specimen. Slow trolling with white Slug Go lures was the successful method. Squid remained viable as long as they were targeted at first light. Grassy Point and Point George were consistent but the shallows of Hermsley were probably the best, with small natural-coloured jigs catching plenty of squid. Graham Shorten drifted the spoil grounds off Leopold with soft plastics, catching a variety of species featuring snapper, flathead and pike. Graham’s largest snapper was 3.1kg and his longest pike over one metre, with Gulp turtleback worms in the Pumpkin Green pattern working best. Salmon continued moving throughout Corio Bay,

ESTUARY ACTION: Chris Pitman with a bream and a mulloway, both taken on lure. making them at times difficult to locate. However, they were found consistently around Alcoa Pier at first light and close in at Bird Rock in the evenings, with soft plastics taking the most fish. Jake McManus trolled deep-diving lures off Bird

Rock where he was into some big pike. Slow trolling the shallow grass beds of the bay at this time of the year will always produce quality pike. Colin Carter caught over a dozen pike in three sessions while fishing land-based from the rocks at

North Shore. Colin used small metal baitfish lures to land fish up to 85cm along with three salmon that he estimated at just over 1kg. Paul Jeffries cast soft plastics from his kayak to catch pike, salmon, snapper and flathead around the boat moorings between Eastern Beach and Royal Geelong Yacht Club. Late in the evening around high tide was best. Surf anglers caught plenty of salmon from the rock platforms just past Lorne, especially when using lures around high tide. Nathan Priest fished the Barwon River near Queen’s Park where he found plenty of small redfin. Soft plastics worked better than hard-bodied lures, especially when worked extremely slowly. The area between Fyans Park to Ceres has been the most productive local stretch of the river for redfin, with late afternoons the best time to fish. Michael Evans continued putting in plenty of time at Wurdee Boluc Reservoir, which understandably rewarded his with the best results. Big redfin have been caught at the reservoir early morning or late in the evening, with smaller specimens biting during the day. Lake Toolondo again produced the best trout fishing in the state. All methods worked but drifting mudeye out under a float was best in bright conditions, with anglers landing fish better than 2kg. Many local anglers travelled far and wide over the long weekend, including Geelong fly expert John Mole who went all the way to the wilds of Tasmania. He did it rough but managed some outstanding fishing, with his best rainbow trout estimated at over 5kg. Tackleworld staff member Chris Pitman fished the estuary at Nelson where he caught bream and mulloway on a mix of vibe and bibbed lures. This weekend’s tides should be ideal for salmon from the surf between Lorne to Wye River. The two hours either side of high tide should be best.
