Competitors off the leash in ruff race for title of Geelong show’s top dog By Luke Voogt DOG GONE: Fletcher Altmann with Matilda and Oliver Bartlett with Maylee at training for this month’s Royal Geelong Show races. 173569

The Royal Geelong Show’s most terrier-ific event returns this year with dashing dogs putting their paws to the floor in a bid for glory. Teesdale’s Caitlin Kitson urged local dog owners to follow the lead of her Scottish terrier, Matilda, a race veteran with one victory. “It must have been a slow year when she won,” Caitlin said. “She’s 11, so now she’d be lucky to get a place.” But Matilda’s chief hander, Caitlin’s son Fletcher, 6, said the tenacious terrier’s fitness regime gave her a chance. “She likes to chase bunnies,” he said. Caitlin described the race as a “fun” rather than “serious”, although the organisers introduced a video referee after “discrepancies” one year. “They run so fast so we had to video it in the end.” Owners would coax their dogs over the line with methods ranging from lures to special treats, Caitlin said. But a good hug would be the only motivation needed for Bannockburn sausage dog Maylee, said “parent” Amanda Bartlett. The cuddly canine trained this week at Geelong Showgrounds with Amanda’s son for her debut in the show’s Dachshund Dash. “She performed very well today - she was very keen to run with Tom, who she adores,” Amanda said Maylee’s family hoped she would pelt up the track to be with her young owner Tom, who had some reservations. “She’s a very lazy dog,” he said, “but once you’ve got a good bond she’ll be the first to reach you.” Terriers, dachshunds and other dogs will compete in respective races on 22 October during the four-day show.

Parents have launched an angry attack on State Government over its failure to repair a Newcomb school building after an arson attack in January. They have blamed a “bureaucratic cockup” for the lack of action at Newcomb Park Primary School. The opposition joined the attack yesterday, saying the government could find $3 million for a school in a marginal seat facing a by-election but nothing for Newcomb.

Governance, ‘vision’ top priorities for candidates By Luke Voogt Geelong’s council candidates have promised the city good governance if they take office, according to this week’s Geelong Indy survey. Twelve of the 37 candidates who responded to the survey this week ranked governance as their top priority, including two sacked councillors recontesting in this month’s election. Peter Murrihy, who was last to join the council before State Government sacked it in April 2016, labelled governance as the number one issue. “Sets of eyes from everywhere will be watching,” he said. “We must get it right.” Former mayor and fellow sacked councillor Bruce Harwood stressed the need for unity, as did newcomer Ken Dickens. “A well governed council that’s working cohesively will ensure priorities are addressed equally,” Mr Harwood said.

Waurn Ponds’ Brent Lyons-Lee, who will contest for the Kardinia Ward, also chose governance first out of 10 issues in the Indy survey. “This, in turn, will guide the other nine important issues towards an exciting and sustainable future for Geelong,” he said. Brownbill Greens candidate Sarah Mansfield said governance was the most common issue Geelong ratepayers had raised with her. “Without this, the other functions of council cannot be performed well,” she said. Another six councillors rated governance in their top three priorities. The then-Local Government Minister Natalie Hutchins cited “poor” governance when she sacked Geelong council. Governance narrowly beat the Geelong Administrators’ Clever and Creative Vision, with 11 councillors labelling the plan their top

priority. The administrators spent more than $500,000 and nine months consulting Geelong residents to prepare their “blueprint” for Geelong’s future. Brownbill candidate Sarah Hathway backed the “16,000 residents (who) had input into that vision”. While only three candidates labelled council services their top priority, more than half rated the category in their top three. Brownbill candidate Stephen Simmons said the council should to return to focussing on the basics. “Roads, rubbish, public spaces and all other core council services should always be the focus of local government, providing them affordably, efficiently and sustainably,” he said. The Indy received 37 responses out of the 53 candidates to its survey which asked about a range of council services and functions.


In Brief Manslaughter guilt Ocean Grove’s Richard Vincec will “never forgive” himself for the one-punch death of Werribee’s Jaiden Walker, a court has heard. Vincec, a father aged 26, pleaded guilty in the Supreme Court this week to the manslaughter of the 22-year-old during a night out in central Melbourne last year.

Amy mourned Family and friends have farewelled rising teenage football star Amy Gorell after her death in a single-car crash last month. More than 1000 mourners gathered in the Presidents Room at Simonds Stadium to remember the 18 year-old after her funeral on Tuesday.

Nurses’ action Nurses demanding higher pay and more colleagues have taken industrial action at two local aged care facilities. Australian Nursing and Midwifery Association targeted Bupa Barrabool and Bellarine as part of a campaign against Bupa’s 26 facilities across Victoria.

Cats study Patrick Dangerfield is leading a group of 10 Cats players studying a diploma in building design as part of a player-development program, according to Geelong’s TAFE institute. “Wishing them all the best for purrfect results,” the Gordon said.

River warning Local lifesavers have switched focus from beaches to rivers for a campaign on inland drowning risks. Royal Life Saving Society launched the Respect the River campaign this week, noting that rivers, creeks and streams were Australia’s “leading location” for drownings.

Merger at the crease is a boost for women’s cricket the boys when she was 10 years old. “I only saw a handful of girls over the six years I played with the boys,” she said. “It’s definitely more common now to see the girls in the junior boys’ division.” The number of teams registered for this year’s competition had more than doubled from the original four, she said.

The 22-year-old bowler said the Geelong’s Cats female side, which last week announced its new AFLW licence, had helped lead a revolution in the city’s female sport. “Cricket is not too far behind,” she said. “Even the VFL Cats team and the promotion it’s gotten this year has really helped.” The Hamlyn Heights local started playing with

Double Take As if Geelongites don’t get enough health lectures already - consider the bans on sugary drinks at council facilities. Now the we-know-what’s-best-for-you brigade thinks we need guidance on washing our hands! The latest admonishment came from a prominent soap company, which this week urged “Geelong residents” to improve their personal hygiene. Apparently we’re among the 40 per cent of Victorians who fail to wash their hands after “sneezing, coughing or blowing their nose, thus risking the spread of germs”. Ooh, dirty us! Well, 40 per cent of us. Anyway, the company urged us to reconsider our “hygiene habits” ahead of - get this Global Handwashing Day on 15 October. Sheesh, what’s next? Stand Up Straight and Smile Nicely Day? Give us a break!

Then Charles Neal (pictured) went several fathoms further, proposing a bay-centric flotilla of projects. His landing-platform includes a 24-metre paddleboat tourist attraction, a massive car park with moorings on reclaimed land at Western Beach, and a bayfront motor racing complex on Moolap’s disused salt-works. Y ohoho! Pipedreams maybe but, hopefully, the ideas of Michael and Charles indicate the next council will keep in mind the untapped potential of Geelong’s greatest natural asset. We are The City by the Bay, after all!

With the field now settled for Geelong’s council elections this month, candidates are beginning to promote a wide range of ideas for community amenity. Sports facilities, community centres, libraries and other worthy civic infrastructure are predominant. And rightly so - public facilities are central to any council responsibilities, of course. But some interesting concepts are focussed away from neighbourhoods and onto the bay, and some are more unconventional than others. Michael King was first off the dock with his idea for a sound shell looking out over the bay from Eastern Gardens. It’s an old idea that’s yet to materialise but, as Michael points out, what a backdrop for visiting performers!

And step forward local MP Lisa Neville, winner of this week’s award for outstanding achievement in the field of bureaucratic mumbo jumbo. As Police Minister, the announcement of the Fixated Threat Risk Assessment Centre established a new frontier in weasellyworded governmental titles. Fixated? Fixated on what? Yoga pants? Well, as Ms Neville indicated, the centre’s actually all about identifying people fixated on committing terrorism - and then providing them with metal health services! Ahh, now we understand why it’s the Fixated Threat Risk Assessment Centre - because Possibly Insane Prospective Terrorist Threat Assessment Centre would be way too long for a letterhead.

Personal edge to search A mother missing from Airey’s Inlet since the night of the AFL Grand Final spoke to a neighbour about a “personal” matter before disappearing, police have revealed. Inspector Peter Seel declined to describe the nature of the personal matter at a press conference on Thursday as police continued searching for Elisa Curry. The 43-year-old disappeared overnight before her husband David and their three children returned the next morning after attending the Grand Final. Ms Curry had sent a text message to them the night before about the Grand Final result. Police initially believed Ms Curry might have gone running with the family dog when she disappeared. A neighbour found the black Labrador roaming Airey’s Inlet alone on Monday. Insp Seel confirmed on Thursday that Ms Curry was with married neighbours on the night she went missing. “They’ve come over and spoken to her and she said she was going to bed,” he said. “The neighbour and her husband were over there, they left and then the wife came back.” Insp Seel said the female returned to Ms Curry’s home, which was when they discussed the undisclosed personal matter. Her circumstances of her disappearance remained a mystery to police after four days of searching and numerous appeals for public help, he said. Investigators lacked clues common in other cases, such as her clothing at the time, mobile phone signals and witnesses after she left the house. “The difficulty here is we haven’t had any of that,” Insp Peter Seel said. “We don’t know what she was wearing, we don’t know at the time what her state of mind was, so it’s difficult to gather all of that together and know what happened.” Police this week widened the search to cliffs and waterways around Airey’s Inlet. The search continued when the Indy went to press late on Thursday.

Our cyber sleuths Geelong will help produce a new generation of cyber-crime fighters, according to Deakin University. Students were studying in Geelong under a partnership with the State Government and big banks to “build Australia’s cybersecurity muscle”, a Deakin spokesperson confirmed. The university announced the arrangement this week, which included the involvement of “technology giant” Dimension Data. The partnership wold train “the IT security experts of the future”, Deakin said. Up to 50 of the first Bachelor of Cyber Security graduates would be “given the opportunity” of work with either Dimension Data, Deakin, ANZ or NAB, the university said. The course would strengthen Australia’s cybersecurity capabilities with “work-ready” graduates, said Deakin School of IT head Professor John Yearwood. “It will enhance cyber security collaboration between the government, education and industry sectors in Victoria and create jobs for the digital economy," Prof Yearwood said. Dimension Data’s Duncan Brown said the course offered job opportunities. “It’s been well documented that there’s a global shortage of cyber security professionals," he said.

A man is due to face court today over the alleged rape of a woman taken from a central Geelong street last year. Sexual Crimes Squad detectives arrested the 68-year-old at his Thomson home on Tuesday. Detectives later charged him with three counts of rape and four of sexual assault later the same day, Victoria Police said. “The charges follow an incident where a woman was approached by an unknown man at a bus stop on Moorabool Street on 13 September last year," police alleged. “The 41-year-old was then driven to an unknown location and subsequently sexually assaulted.”

The state’s emergency management boss will use Geelong to address Victoria’s looming “abovenormal” fire-risk season, according to an agency hosting his talk. Emergency Management Commissioner Craig Lapsley is due to visit City Hall on Tuesday to give a lecture on the dangers ahead this summer. His talk comes as flora grows thick in the region’s bushland, farms and parks following aboveaverage rain so far this spring. The growth combines with a Bureau of Meteorology forecast of above-average summer temperatures in south-east Australia to present a threatening bushfire outlook. Mr Lapsley will use his Geelong speech to “outline the vital necessity of excellent communications to stave off potentially disastrous human impacts of wild fire and grass fire,” said the Public Relations Institute of Australia.

His talk of risks this summer would reach further than just fire dangers, the institute said, pointing out his other responsibilities including protecting Victorians against deadly thunderstorm asthma. Mr Lapsley recently spoke on the importance of communications in dealing with emergencies. “It’s not just about floods and fires, it’s about health emergencies,” he said. “It’s about the ability to get information to the community about their decision-making.” The PR institute’s Victorian president Alex Messina urged greater Geelong residents to heed Mr Lapsley’s message next week. Regional Victorians who had “endured tragedy and devastation from fire” knew well the importance of staying informed on summer risk and safety information, he said.

Parents fired up over repair wait By Luke Voogt

OUT OF THE WOODS: Teddy doctors Mieke Foster, Tara Grayson and Mathew Rawlings tend to Honey and Ginger's paw-ful injuries. 173565 (Rebecca Hosking)

Best bedside manner for bears By Luke Voogt Local teddies will no longer have to grin and bear their pain with Deakin’s expert team of medical students coming to central Geelong on Sunday. A gold coin donation and a visit to their temporary hospital will cover more than just the ‘bear’ necessities, according chief teddy doctor Tara Grayson. “Every teddy will be triaged when they arrive before seeing their teddy doctors to be checked and treated,” she said “Children of all ages can bring in their teddies and toys for a check-up from our teddy doctors and to be referred on to our medical imaging and optometry stations. “Referrals to medical imaging students will check teddies for healthy bones and muscles before an eye check up with our optometry students.”

The Deakin University and allied health teddy specialists will treat all types of grizzly injuries to raise money for the children’s ward of Geelong Hospital. “Help us raise funds to help care for Geelong’s sick kids,” Tara said. The program allows the doctors and health professionals of tomorrow to improve their communication with children and teddies in a playful setting, Tara said. The teddy bear hospital would help Geelong cubs see hospitals in a more ‘pawsitive’ light and take the ‘panda-monium’ out of visits, she said. “Our program improves health literacy in children, encouraging healthy lifestyles while also reducing the fear many children may have towards hospital environments.” “Proudly supported by Deakin University Student Association, this is a special teddy bear event not to be missed.”

Outraged parents have slammed the Andrews Government’s failure to repair a Geelong school eight months after vandals burnt down its newest building. “We’ve had enough,” said Newcomb Park Primary School Council president Miranda Hurley. “We got to the end of term three and nothing had been done. I thought ‘this is crazy’. “I’ve had to turn to the media to speed things up ... due to frustratingly long periods of waiting.” Arsonists torched the building on 24 January, destroying the building for grades prep to thee and school ceremonies. The state opposition slammed the government yesterday for neglecting the rebuild while providing $3.1 million to a school in the marginal Labor seat of Northcote, set for a by-election after the death of MP Fiona Richardson. But Newcomb’s school was “completely overlooked” for funding, Ms Hurley said. “All sorts of new projects are going on in and around Geelong as well. We’re very angry we’ve had to wait for a simple rebuild.” The building remained ruin following a bureaucratic mistake at Victorian School Building Authority, Ms Hurley said. “They pledged to rebuild within three or four months but instead they passed the rebuild onto another authority altogether. “It’s been a real trial for the principal and her staff to be able to teach at Newcomb Park.” The government announced millions of dollars in upgrades for Geelong schools this year. “I’d like to think that the government doesn’t focus on one area more than another,” Ms Hurley said. But the long wait had made her think other-

The school council had also heard nothing from police regarding any suspects, she said. Community groups and businesses had raised almost $25,000 for the school, Ms Hurley said. The kindness of a former student was particularly stunning, she said. “He walked in and gave $500 in cash to the principal.” Victorian School Building Authority chief executive Chris Keating admitted the lack of progress at Newcomb Park was “not good enough”. “It’s a big job, it’s a $1 million job, but there’s no doubt it’s a late project,” he told 3AW yesterday. Mr Keating said work would begin in term four and finish in time for next year. But the authority was already too late, Ms Hurley said. “We’d like the building to start straight away. We don’t know where we’re going to hold our grade six graduation, if we can at all.”

Opposition slam for seat-shy MP

Geelong, lets walk to school this October. OCT




By Luke Voogt


14 Oct - 11 Nov

Free entry to the National Wool Museum for children 16 years and under during the exhibition

The state opposition has labelled Bellarine MP Lisa Neville a hypocrite after she criticised a colleague for moving from a marginal electorate. “It is the height of hypocrisy that Lisa Neville would judge where her colleagues decide to run, when she doesn’t even live in her own seat,” said Nationals MP Emma Kealy. But Ms Neville hit back saying she worked, studied and lived in Geelong and Bellarine for more than 25 years. “In that time I have had the privilege of representing the Bellarine community, a marginal seat in which I have been honoured to be re-elected four times.” The attack came after the Police Minister this week told a press conference she was not a “big fan” of MPs leaving marginal seats. Ms Neville’s comments followed former Emergency Services Minister Jane Garrett’s announcement that she would run for the Upper House rather than recontest her marginal Brunswick seat. Ms Kealy described the comments as “a poorly disguised attack on” Ms Garrett, who resigned her ministry following the CFA dispute. The opposition released a list of Labor MPs living outside their electorates, including Ms Neville, who lives six kilometres from the Bellarine. “This is a government at war with itself, more interested in fighting each other than focusing its efforts on helping Victorians,” Ms Kealy. “It’s disappointing that Lisa Neville would rather attack other women than tackle the violent crime tsunami plaguing our state.” But crime was on the decrease, the Police Minister said. “Through the work of Victoria Police in Geelong, Surf Coast and the Bellarine, we have seen the first decrease in crime in our region for 10 years.” Ms Neville stuck by her comments from earlier in the week.

POLITICAL STORM: Lisa Neville hit back at the opposition as she weathered their latest attack. “I don’t shy away from that,” she said. “I have a very strong view that elected representatives are accountable to their communities.” “When you put your hand up to represent a community you owe it to them to continue to prioritise their needs over your own by seeking safer seats.” Ms Garrett resigned as Emergency Services Minster after refusing to sign the State Government’s controversial enterprise bargaining agreement for firefighters earlier this year. She won the seat of Brunswick marginally from her Greens rival Tim Read in the 2014 state election.

HELPING HAND: Workskil's Emma Easdale meets with young Geelong job seekers.

Employment information top-up Community organisations joined forces to battle Geelong’s youth unemployment with information sessions and pizza on Thursday. Geelong’s youth unemployment rate was at 9.3 per cent in July, according to Department of Employment data. But the figure was likely much higher in certain parts of the city, said Geelong Region Local Learning and Employment Network’s (GRLLEN) Helen Boult. “It does not account for pockets of much higher disadvantage such as Corio, Norlane or Whittington,” she said. In Geelong 17 per cent of the labour force were either unemployed or underemployed, Ms Boult said. “Given that the youth unemployment rate is

higher than the overall labour force figure, we can expect that more young people are underemployed as well.” GRLLEN held its free #InstaConnect forum at Simonds Stadium on Thursday to help young jobseekers explore their options. Organisations including Diversitat and Gforce met with youths aged 16 to 24 at the forum, which included free pizza. Youth unemployment and underemployment was at its highest rate ever in Australia, according to a Brotherhood of St Laurence report from February. There were about 650,000 young people in Australia who were either unemployed, or employed but wanting more hours, the report stated. 9 GEELONG INDY Friday, 6 October, 2017

Amanda to the top of the class By Luke Voogt Torquay student Amanda Edgar topped Deakin University’s optometry class while performing life-saving treatment on cancer patients in Melbourne. “It was hard work but it was worth it,” she told the Indy prior to her graduation on Wednesday. The registered radiographer was one of 2000 students who graduated from the university this week. She will feature in Optometry Victoria’s bimonthly publication after winning its award for most outstanding Deakin graduate. The 30-year-old grew up in Torquay and studied radiology in Melbourne, before getting a job at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. “It was just a passion to help people and for science as well,” she said. “I want to use my understanding to help (patients) in their darkest days.” Amanda continued her job part-time when she returned to university to complete a Bachelor of Vision Science and a Master of Optometry. She chose the degree for the university’s placement options, and had a few choice reasons for studying in Geelong. “It’s great being able to go for a surf,” she said. The university’s government-sponsored outreach programs for Aboriginal communities also appealed to Amanda. “We go into these communities and provide them with health care they otherwise wouldn’t receive.” Amanda has kept busy after completing her studies a few months ago, getting a job as an optometrist and a teacher at Deakin, while continuing as a radiation therapist.

Deakin Dean of Medicine Professor Jon Watson described Amanda’s work ethic as “quite remarkable”. “She’s a delightful person and a great student,” he said. “They often say give a busy person a job and she’s a good example of that - it’s amazing how much she fits into her day.” The course Amanda completed was new at the university, he said. “This is our third group of graduates so it will be great for them to have a strong role model like that.” Also among the graduates was Canberran Ken Taylor who received his PhD just weeks out from his 80th birthday. The honorary architecture professor said the PhD was an opportunity to bring together his lifetime of research subjects, including cultural geography and town planning. His latest work focussed on changing attitudes to cultural heritage theory and practice internationally and in South East Asia. “I’m very grateful to Deakin for giving me the opportunity, as it made me reflect on 30 years of work, and investigate a wealth of new literature,” he said. A dozen school business managers from public schools in Western Australia travelled 3000km for the graduation after completing a Deakin graduate course. Deakin University Vice-Chancellor Professor Jane den Hollander congratulated the graduating class on the culmination of their years of hard work and commitment. “Graduation ceremonies at Deakin are not only a recognition of the sacrifice and dedication of our students, but a celebration of the power of learning to change lives,” she said.

OUT OF SIGHT: Amanda Edgar scored top marks in optometry while balancing study with her demanding medical job.

Playboy driver’s flirt with danger But the car turned around, driving toward police before stopping halfway up the exit ramp and performing multiple burnouts. The driver then travelled back into oncoming traffic up the off ramp before continuing south on the ring road toward Anglesea Rd, police alleged. Police said the sedan had a pink registration plate reading ’PLAYBOY’ affixed to the front of the vehicle. A plate with the registration sequence TKG 222 was on the rear, police said. Police believed that both plates were stolen. Police described the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle as a Caucasian man in his early twenties, who was wearing a hooded jumper at the time. They urged anyone with information to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at crimestoppersvic.com.au

A car with an allegedly stolen PLAYBOY registration plate has driven through oncoming traffic to evade apprehension, according to Geelong police. Police this week released images and security camera footage in their efforts to track down the driver after the dangerous incident on 20 September. Geelong Highway Patrol members observed the white Holden Commodore perform a burnout at the intersection of Colac and Pigdons Rd about 12.30pm. Police saw the sedan travel west toward Geelong’s ring road and Waurn Ponds Dve roundabout. They attempted to intercept the driver, who turned onto the exit ramp of the Geelong Ring Road, travelling south into oncoming traffic, police said.

Housing market gets grant boost By Luke Voogt

ARTFUL SOULS: Stephanie Sherwell and Miranda Jarvis' creations feature in Deakin University's latest exhbition. 173523 (Rebecca Hosking)

Graduates put their soul into art By Luke Voogt Bright coloured paint and canvas portraits stretched across Deakin University’s walls as its creative souls exhibited their work for the year. Aspiring Lara artist Stephanie Sherwell joined about a dozen students in the XIII Deakin Graduate Show. “It’s the first time I’ve been able to exhibit anything so I’m really excited,” the 21-year-old said. “We’ve all been installing over the past three days.” The exhibition had a bit of “everything”, from photos and sculpture to “huge” portraits, Stephanie said. “Everyone is so different - that’s what makes it so great.”

Stephanie’s art journey began in year 9 thanks to her Clonard College art teacher “giving me the time of day,” she said. “I’ve never found myself to be overly creative or talented but there are people along the way who have put time into me and really made me realise my potential.” Her multimedia exhibit included drawings of family and friends, and Stephanie was excited to reveal her work to the people who inspired it. “(They) helped me to get where I am and have pushed me to be the best I can be.” Professor Bill Hay and Geelong artist Steve Singline officially launched XIII on Wednesday evening at Deakin University’s waterfront campus. The exhibition runs from 10am until 4pm at the Sally Walker Building until 11 October.

The doubled First Home Owners Grant has driven record Geelong house sales during the last quarter, according to a prominent local builder. Armstrong Creek development Warralily recorded a 32 per cent rise during the last three months, said director Mark Casey. “Our last quarter has been a record,” he said. “Our sales have increased dramatically over the last three months with the $20,000 regional First Home Owner Grant.” Mr Casey said other developers were experiencing a similar boom in sales. Warralily’s rivals had sold out or recorded at least 15 per cent increases according to the company’s competition activity reports, he said. The combination of the grant, stamp duty reductions and rising prices in Melbourne had made buying Geelong “a really attractive proposition,” Mr Casey said. Prices had risen by up to $120,000 in Melbourne growth corridors in the past nine months, compared to $35,000 in Geelong, he said. “The Melbourne market’s been hot and Geelong’s playing catch up - it’s made Geelong a very affordable.” The opening of two public schools and shopping precinct in the area would help increase sales, Mr Casey said. Local builder Enso Homes also recorded a record quarter, an increase director Lee Selkrig said could be partially due to the grant. “We’ve hit a record quarter every quarter we’ve been in existence.” But he had noticed a definite increase in first home buyers who he said had more confidence and money to buy because of the grant.

BOOST: The First Home Owners Grant has seen Geelong developers report record sales. (Jeremy Minter) “It’s brought some excitement and motivation to the table.” The State Government this year introduced a $20,000 First Home Owners Grant (FHOG) for regional Victoria, which it expected to deliver $120 million in assistance during 2017-18. The government also abolished stamp duty on all homes up to $600,000 and cut stamp duty on homes valued up to $750,000 for first home buyers. The changes would allow 6000 people to purchase their first house, boost local construction jobs and encourage people to move to regional Victoria, Treasurer Tim Pallas said. “These important reforms are a win for thousands of Victorians, allowing businesses to grow and create jobs, while delivering thousands of dollars in stamp duty relief for first home buyers.” The government also abolished off-the-plan stamp duty concessions for investment properties to further level the playing field for first home buyers, Mr Pallas said.

Cats in team for ice fight The Cats have joined a new Geelong community drugs taskforce focusing on ice use among young people, a national foundation has announced. Geelong Football Club would serve the Local Drug Action Team (LDAT) under the leadership of welfare body Barwon Child Youth and Family, the Alcohol and Drug Foundation said. The Geelong team was one of 80 rolling out around Australia, the foundation said. The teams would work on developing “an evidence-informed approach to engaging with young people”. “The primary focus of this LDAT is the prevention of alcohol and other drug-related harm in

the Geelong area,” the foundation said. “The LDAT’s work will centre on community engagement and understanding of how best to reduce the risk factors for young people in Geelong.“ “The LDATs were part of a Turnbull Government plan to “tackle the scourge of ice, drugs and alcohol at a grass-roots level”, said federal MP Sarah Henderson. Geelong’s team would have an “initial” $10,000 in funding to deliver support services, the Member for Corangamite said. The LDATs were among more than 300 partnerships between councils, service providers,

schools, police, sports groups and non-government organisations to fight Australia’s drugs scourge, she said. “Over the next three years, 220 LDATs will be established across the country and supported by the Alcohol and Drug Foundation to develop locally focused and responsive action plans to reduce the impact of drugs, with a particular focus on the drug ice.” Rising rates of drug use around the Geelong region have been linked to increasing instances of crime in recent years, particularly theft and burglaries.

Make the downsizing journey your next chapter to a new life Many Australians over 55 are choosing to live out their days in the family home, finding the tangible asset provides them with much needed security and many memories from the past. They feel they can comfortably age in place there, however, the size of the garden, associated costs for utilities, rates and cleaning can all become a burden which may fall onto their children to assist with maintenance and bills. By choice, or due to changes in circumstance, a cash injection may be required and the sale of a major asset, such as the family home, will help to access some equity and increase the cash reserves to make life after 55 a little more comfortable. Downsizing from a large, cumbersome and costly home opens up an array of new opportunities for over 55s to make the most out of life. Whether you are an empty-nester or someone that is now living alone, downsizing can represent a new way to start a new life in a new home. It allows you to save money, energy, and resources, giving you more time to live life to the full now and spend more time with family.

While moving to a smaller, more manageable home generally provides the chance to free up both capital and time, it can also mean taking stock of a lifetime of collected possessions and connections to the family home. Naturally, some people feel daunted by the prospect of downsizing, as with any home move there is a lot to organise and consider. However for most people who make the shift, their only regret is that they didn’t do it sooner. If you approach downsizing as a time to declutter and embark on a fresh new chapter in life, any negative emotions of moving often turn out to be very short lived when joys of a more relaxed, unburdened lifestyle take over. There are a number of reasons people decide to downsize: 1. Live in a smaller house with less maintenance 2. Unlock equity and free up funds 3. Lifestyle changes 4. Health reasons 5. Move closer to family Discover more about the lifestyle benefits after downsizing by attending a free ‘Road Map to Retirement’ High Tea and presentation.

SALE UP TO DANCING QUEEN: Latin-dancing Hamlyn Heights teen Ali Simpson takes on her first pageant this weekend.


Hometown miss goes for global Geelong Latin-dancing teen Ali Simpson will have a hometown boost as she vies for a place in the Victorian final of Miss World Australia. Ali admitted to nerves before her pageant debut against 24 other women in central Geelong on Saturday. “I think I’m most nervous about the question and answer part,” the 18-year-old said. “But one of the reasons I did it was to boost my confidence. I’m excited about dressing up and having a go at something new.” But the catwalk should be a cakewalk for the Hamlyn Heights local, who has ballroom danced since age seven. She and brother Jesse have several DanceSport Australia youth titles under their belts. The pair is ranked sixth in Australia in the Adult Open Latin Division. “We argue a fair bit but that’s only natural because we want to do so well,” she said. Jesse and Ali’s older sister were first in the family to fall in love with dances like the Samba and the Paso Doble. “They saw it on TV when they were young and said ‘Mum and Dad, we want to do that’,” Ali said. Ali grasped her chance to dance when her sis-

ter grew too tall to be a partner for Jesse. “I love the aspect of dressing up and being on the floor,” she said. Recently they competed in the world’s oldest and most famous ballroom competition, the Blackpool Dance Festival. Miss World’s Beauty with a Purpose charity appealed to Ali, who participated in a holiday program for refugee children. “It’s not just about the way you look but the way you behave, your attitudes and personality,” she said. She and her classmates ran activities for the children through Diversitat and her old high school. “Some of the kids had only been there a few weeks and couldn’t speak English,” she said. “It was really incredible and I was glad I did it.” Ali studies osteopathy at Victoria University and wants to become an actress. She will compete in a runway show featuring spring racing fashions at Market Square on Saturday for a spot in the Victorian final, after her Canberra aunt suggested entering. “She just messaged me and said 'I think you’ll be really good at Miss World',” she said. “It’s pretty simple - you just go online and fill out an application.”

Jab to beat flus A $1.4 million funding injection will help Geelong through one of Victoria’s worst flu seasons, State Government has announced. The “special support package” for Barwon Health came as the state battled with 14,000 reported flu cases so far, the government said. “Over winter there has been a surge in people visiting emergency departments. In August alone, more than 3900 people visited emergency departments each day - the largest ever for August on record.” “This funding package will support local hospitals to ensure a record number of patients can get the care they need from emergency departments faster, for the remainder of the year. Quicker hospital transfer times will also enable paramedics to get back on the road sooner and save more lives.” Hospitals were urging patients with “less-severe illnesses” to contact their GP, a pharmacist or Nurse-On-Call as the peak of flu season drew near, the government said. “This flu season has hit us hard,” Health Minister Jill Hennessy said. Geelong MP Christine Couzens welcomed the funding boost for Barwon Health.

Hefty fines after offences score Geelong Highway Patrol has posted a grand final “scoreboard” after nabbing about a dozen drivers and motorcyclists putting local lives in danger last weekend. Acting Senior Sergeant Jason Van Doren shared the results of Operation Scoreboard on social media, with police “catches” including drugged drivers and unrestrained children. “The vast majority of drivers acted responsibly and didn’t create any problems for the police or other road users,” he posted. “However, as it is with most things in life, a few people always let the side down.” Police detected a 19-year-old man from Moolap drug driving about 9.30pm on Thursday, who will face court and could lose his licence. The next morning police detected a 25-year-

old Waurn Ponds man riding his Kawasaki motorcycle at 151km/h on the Geelong Ring Road at Highton. Police impounded his motorcycle and the man could lose his licence for more than 12 months. On Saturday police detected a 30-year-old man from Keilor Downs drug driving on the Geelong Ring Road at Corio, who now faces court and a loss of licence. Later that day at 4.20pm, a 37-year-old Point Lonsdale man crashed in North Geelong, who police said was driving carelessly and using his mobile phone under the influence. Police took him back to Geelong police station where he blew an alcohol reading of .142. They issued him with fines of more than $1500 and cancelled his licence for 14 months.

“Luckily no-one was injured by the collision but it had potential to be quite serious,” Sen Sgt Van Doren said. Four hours later police intercepted a 61-yearold Belmont man in James Street, Belmont, who blew .123 at a booze bus operating in the area. Police issued him a $674 fine and cancelled his licence for 12 months. At 10.30pm that night police picked up a 19-year-old Grovedale man drug driving with an incorrectly restrained child in the car on Settlement Road, Belmont. Police detected a 45-yeart-old Highton man driving with a suspended licence, who tested positive for drugs, about 3pm the next day. They impounded the man’s car until 31 October. The man must pay $994 to get his car back and will face court.

About 5.20pm, police detected a 45-year-old man Hawthorn East man driving at 127km/h on the Princes Highway at Mt Moriac. The same crew detected a 24-year-old Belmont man driving at 135km/h at that location 15 minutes later. Another Highway Patrol crew intercepted a 32-year-old man from Corio driving in Fairbairn Road, Corio, who tested positive for drugs. Last police intercepted a disqualified a 36-year-old driver from Corio on the Princes Highway, Corio. Police arrested the man and impounded his car after finding he had prior disqualified driving and traffic offences. The man was bailed to face court at a later date. The Victorian Road Toll was 186, down on 219 last year.

The air up there The region’s first kite festival is aiming for a flying start at Torquay this month, according to an organiser. The inaugural Surf Coast Kite Festival would draw enthusiasts and spectators to Fisherman’s Beach on 22 October, Sarah Bolus said. A small group of parents with children at Jan Juc Preschool were behind the free “day of fun for all ages”, she said. “We’re really excited about the amount of support we’ve received from local businesses and the community. The Surf Coast is famous for summer beach days and surfing but flying a kite is a way for those of us who don’t surf to enjoy the coast, even when the weather’s not perfect.” Professional kite flyers including world champion Jo Baker would put on a “giant display” including oversized kites, Ms Bolus said. “Seeing the giant kites in action is definitely going to be a highlight but there really will be something for everyone.”

Wind and hail as the rains pour in UNDER THE WEATHER Lindsay Smail September 2017 in Geelong has finished much wetter but only fractionally warmer than the respective 30-year averages for total rain and daily temperatures. Most of the region received above to wellabove rain, except for some areas in the north and northwest from Lara to Rowsley Fault and partially beyond. The Otways had some of the highest totals as usual, with the Beech Forest area recording 312.4mm. Geelong’s official weather station measured 68.2mm, up significantly on the 30-year long-term figure of 49.1mm The welcome rains helped local water storages surge from 68 per cent capacity at the start of the month to 78.8 per cent at the end. Interestingly, the total for the end of Septem-

ber was almost exactly the same figure recorded in 2016. As for temperatures, the .05C below-normal result was a consequence of the nights finishing .1C cooler and the days exactly equal to the long-term average. The month’s minimums averaged 7.1C, while the maximums were 17.1C. The warmest day for September 2017 in Geelong was the 21st when the mercury reached 23.2C, while seven days of the month exceeded 20C. September also had one frost day, which was on the first day of the month, along with two days of hail on the fourth and fifth. Snow fell in the Otways from Lorne to Lavers Hill on 5 September. The month also had one thunder day, on 15 September, and eight days of high wind gusts over 60km/h. The strongest gust at Breakwater reached 93km/h on 4 September.

Snakes sighted moving around By Justin Flynn Snakes are already on the move around Geelong, according to reports from walkers. Most were seen along the Barwon River and at Lara, Corio, Marshall and on the Bellarine Peninsula. The snakes were coming out of hibernation to breed, snake catcher Darren Keiller said. He warned that the freshly emerged snakes were territorial and “very aggressive“. Mr Keiller expected to be busy in the next few weeks. “I think it’ll really pick up fairly soon. Last year was super busy." Mr Keiller warned walkers encountering snakes to keep their distance. “They’re very misunderstood - they don’t want to bite. If you see one, just back off quickly away from it.” Mr Keiller had just returned from catching a snake at Marshall when he spoke to the Indy this week. “The owners of a dog were alerted to the snake by the dog barking at the snake that was behind a log,” he said. Locals reported snake bites killing pet dogs in recent weeks. Mr Keiller urged dog owners to keep their pets on leashed and to keep them out of bushland and long grass. “If a dog starts acting weird or vomiting, that’s a sure sign that it’s been bitten,” he said. “All snakes are deaf, it’s the smell of the dog that they will pick up on first. It doesn’t matter how much noise you’re making - they won’t hear you.” Mr Keiller said long pants and boots could serve as protection while mowing or whippersnipping. About 90 per cent of his catch was tiger snakes but copperheads were also common, he said.

Letters Our with the old - for good I plead to my fellow Geelong citizens to not vote in any past Geelong councillors. The one thing we don’t want is the cancerous and destructive culture of former Geelong councils to come back to haunt us, especially now that a clean-up had hopefully happened and a new City of Greater Geelong has been born. What a devastating and despairing kick in the guts it would be, if we didn’t complete the process 100 per cent by allowing any of the past councillors to return. Whether some of them are good or not doesn’t matter - they all come from that era. Image can be just as destructive as reality, especially today when the media pounces on any juicy story no matter whether truthful or good or bad news. Joel Meeke Grovedale

Watching the watchdogs Since Geelong’s council administrators will serve a term shorter than expected, did they find the job harder than anticipated? Was their shortened appointment paid out? Former Local Government Minister Natalie Hutchins pointed out that the council bullying investigation had not been finalised. We must, therefore, assume the administrators failed to achieve one of their most important goals. The appointment of another overarching layer of bureaucracy, council monitors, whom ratepayers must pay, demonstrated that the minister had no faith in the ability of the Geelong’s community to elect worthy people to form the new council. A disturbing trend in government expansion has been the collection of laws, regulations and binding court decisions making up the Nanny State. Their message is clear: politicians and bureaucrats know more about managing your life than you do. What happened to democracy? When will Geelong be free of the state’s apron strings? The manipulation of democracy to fit in with the state’s grand scheme for Geelong must cease at this month’s elections. Geelong people deserve nothing less. Since the Labor Government chose administrator Peter Dorling and Commission of Inquiry committee member Jude Munro as the council monitors, I question their independence. Who is sitting on their shoulders overseeing their work? Should the people of Geelong appoint our own watchdogs to watch the watch dogs? Sandra Camm Belmont

Public owned, public barred Who owns our community assets? Two controversial issues on the Bellarine Peninsula bring this question to the fore. We all know that, in the context of Geelong council’s history, the priority must be to promote democratic processes. Portarlington Community Association and Barwon Heads Association liaised with eight other community associations across the peninsula to organise four meet-the-candidates forums in October. Yet we found that the Local Government Act

Buckets & Bouquets Buckets to council for failing to act on complaints about cars parked illegally on nature strips or about overgrown nature strips and schools yards around Grovedale and Marshall. Some of the illegal parking has been going on at least nine years and has just become progressively worse.

prevented us using council-owned premises for forums to inform voters about candidates in council elections. These facilities can be used in state and federal elections but not for local government. How disappointing is this, on our road to new democracy in Geelong! In Drysdale it meant the Potato Shed, the SpringDale centre and the bowling club were forbidden territory, so ratepayers foot the bill for council facilities but can’t use them at crucial times. In a separate issue, the community has been denied use of a facility privately owned but regarded as a community asset over decades - the closed Portarlington pool. The two open pools considered part of the peninsula, at Ocean Grove and Newcomb, are too far away for many older residents of the northern peninsula. City of Great Geelong refuses to accept it has a responsibility to provide a pool for Portarlington’s community or to try resolving the impasse between the closed pool’s owners and the lessee, or to contribute to the repairs necessary to reopen the pool. Yet again the community loses out. Chris Kelly Portarlington Community Association

Marriage civil, not religious I envy Mike Deam (Letters, 29 September). His faith in the inerrancy of the good word and of the divinity of Jesus must be comforting. It’s also misguided. Early church fathers Origen, Athanasius and Eusebius were far more circumspect. The Christian church never even settled on the books of what we call the bible until 1611, an exercise that took almost eight years. I understand the desire for certainty and our fear of death can lead us to interesting places. These are normal human evolutionary impulses. Since freeing myself from the shackles of religion over 40 years ago I have embraced uncertainty and the sheer joy of all life’s creation. Marriage is a civil institution first and foremost. It predates the Bible by thousands of years. The Bible has as much that is useful to say about marriage as it does about the cancer of slavery, which it condones.

Too much of a good thing Tim Saclier (Letters, 29 September) wanted readers to feel good about CO2 because it’s the stuff we breathe out and is greening the planet. It’s all just nice upside stuff. I would agree we have a lot to be thankful for to CO2. If it wasn’t for its greenhouse properties Earth’s average surface temperature would be about -18C. The only life might be microbes around thermal vents and in the Earth’s crust, so I would go one up on Mr Saclier and say we owe everything to CO2. But where nature has provided us with a finely balanced system we are now fiddling with the dial, which is OK too, though - we have to live and do stuff. But to ignore the consequences of increased CO2 emissions and deny it is happening is not OK. It stalls action. This is now pretty evident in the energy policy stagnation in which we suddenly seem to find ourselves when an old coal-fired power station is shut down. Then the deniers turn around and blame renewables. If Mr Saclier believes more is better he should go to Texas and India and explain to the recent flood victims how lucky they are. After all, water is essential for life and greens the planet. Jukka Tuisku Barwon Heads

Local control a bottler Decisions on liquor outlets have not been made at council in the cities of Whitehorse and Boondara since the 1920s but directly by the Liquor Commission conducting a local referendum in the community for each application. Now in Ocean Grove, where it has greatly influenced the character of the area since the founding subdivision of 1887, the covenant on all titles against sale or manufacture of liquor has drawn to a close

This is because, following a Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal decision in 2014, removal of such a covenant at the supreme court can now be handled at council under the Planning and Environment Act of the 1980s. How shall we continue the temperance heritage of Ocean Grove? I asked council at its 20 September meeting to support an action requiring the assent of parliament for the Ocean Grove area to operate under the local referenda provisions of the liquor commission, as done for 100 years now in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs. This is an excellent move in handling affairs at a local level, away from the excesses of central authority. It is a matter for all council candidates to consider, both before and after their election on 17 October. At the time of writing, the administrators had yet to give their decision.

Poncho’s cold discomfort Woollen children’s and dogs’ blankets have been flying out of local op shops like bread out of a bakery.

No jobs for the boys Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) chair Elizabeth Proust recently bemoaned that the institute would fail to reach its aim of 30 per cent of company directors being female by 2018. Men have lost 400,000 jobs in manufacturing over the past decade but Ms Proust wants to complain about the failure of a handful of directorships going to women? It’s obnoxious to suggest that companies appoint men simply because they are men. Companies want the best available talent, which is in their best interests. Does AICD have any idea how affirmative action-type policies impact on men and how they feel about being pushed aside? What Ms Proust also conveniently forgets is that over the past three decades more than 1.2 million jobs that would have gone to men have gone to women. Statistics show women now take two of every three new jobs. The issue isn’t finding jobs for women, it’s finding jobs for men as traditional male jobs disappear fast, mostly in manufacturing and mining. Men have lost so much ground it’s become a hidden problem. Equality of opportunity does not mean equal outcomes, nor should it ever. For every man passed over in favour of a woman another woman is disadvantaged, namely the wife of the man passed over. Quotas or affirmative action policies are in no sense equality of opportunity and are, in fact, a denial of it. Alan Barron Grovedale

Behind a real-life succession story Corio Waste Management employees’ future is more secure thanks to a succession plan, according to chief executive officer Mat Dickens. “They don’t need to worry about their future because it’s under control,” he said. Mr Dickens completed a plan with his siblings and father and company founder Ken. “It’s confronting when you’re thinking about what if,” he said. “But it’s important to do, so everybody knows what each other expects.” Family business expert Bill Winter said other local companies like Faggs Mitre 10 and Lyons Construction had planned well for the future. The latter put in a plan for Christine Lyons to

take over her father Kevin’s position on the board when he turned 80. “That’s going to secure the future of the company for the family,” Mr Winter said. But less than a third of family businesses in Australia had a succession plan, according to government statistics. “In a family business there are a lot of long-term employees,” Mr Winter said. “They’re all worried to death about what’s going to happen.” Mr Winter knew three Victorian businesses which a lack of a planning plunged into confusion.

“In one instance it took six months to sort it out,” he said. Another business owner instead put an advisory board in place three months before his sudden death. “There was never any angst between the inlaws and the siblings,” Mr Winter said. “It was all sorted before it happened. “That business went on to win Victorian Regional Business of the Year.” Bill Winter will give a seminar on succession planning for the Geelong Chamber of Commerce at Geelong Conference Centre next Tuesday at 7.15am.

Network and Learn how to Succession Plan your Family Business Family businesses are the quiet champions of our economy. One of the major issues that has been identified by PWC and FBA (Family Business Australia) is the need for succession planning, particularly where the current owner is looking to retire. This can lead to conflict, lots of emotion and even a reluctance to let go. This seminar is designed to stimulate the discussion and provide some honest ideas about how to go about succession. We will have a panel discussion with key players in this area, including Teresa Hanlon, General Manager Hanlon Industries; Dan Simmonds, Family Business Lawyer Harwood Andrews; and Bill Winter, Family Business Advisor.

Mulry Gang rockin' at the Sphinx By Luke Voogt The Ted Mulry Gang and its late founding member’s 90-year-old mother are still rocking ’til late after 45 years on the Australian airwaves. Ted Mulry’s mum watched the band at a Sydney gig on the deceased singer’s 70th birthday, according to drummer Herm Kovac. “That was kind of special," he said. “She was up later than me!” The band, famous for the song Jump in My Car, reunited for the first time in 25 years to tour in celebration of Mulry’s birthday. Kovac remembered playing a fund-raising gig alongside Sherbet and INXS for Mulry before he died of brain cancer in 2001. “I told him ‘unless you get better that’s last I’m playing drums,’” he said. “Up until he died, we were the longest running band in rock history in Australia.” Mulry smiled at him because “he didn’t want to miss the band’s future gigs”, Kovac said. “I sort of kept that word for 18 years.” But now the band is playing again with Ted’s younger brother Steve at the helm. “If it wasn’t his brother he might be p****d off," Kovac said. “But he’d probably say ‘they’re looking after my brother so that’s cool.’” Kovac knew Steve, who sang for Australian group Black Label, since he was six and said he sounded a lot like his older brother. “Although he’s probably more of a front man because he’s not stuck to a bass like Ted was.” Original AC/DC member Mark Evans took up Ted’s bass guitar alongside band originals Les Hall and Gary Dixon. “We knew Mark before he started AC/DC,” Kovac said. “Having a bass player that Ted loved and who influenced his playing - he would not object to

JUMP IN MY CAR: The Ted Mulry Gang (pictured in their early days) will play at the Sphinx on 13 October. that all.” Their connection with AC/DC goes back to when they babysitted the legendary Angus Young. The then 12-year-old would come along when his older brother Malcolm had band practice with Kovac. “Angus to this day still calls me Uncle Herm,” he said. Kovac said it was brilliant getting back with the band and rehearsing in the studio.

“The band was together for 28 years because we got on, and we still get on. “I’m reading a book on Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers at the moment, I’m thinking ‘bloody hell I’d hate to be in that band.’” Kovac’s son was amazed when he saw his 67-year-old dad in the demanding role of drummer for the first time at a recent gig. “He says ‘geez I didn’t think you were that fit’.”

The Ted Mulry Gang will play all their classic hits plus a few choice Australian covers at the Sphinx on 13 October. “You’re not going to see a whole stack of overaged guys who can’t play - that would be pathetic,” Kovac said. “We’ve all aged gracefully like the Stones, although none of us look like Jagger.”

Ellis to retrace music history By Luke Voogt Ron Ellis wanted his new book to remember the live music scene of Geelong in years past rather than a be “boring autobiography”. “I’ve retraced a few places in the book that are no longer part of the Geelong landscape,” the 70-year-old told the Indy. Ron strolls through the city’s music history in My Story, My Song, and My City, through his eyes and wife Hazel’s. “It’s a very local Geelong-interest book,” he said, “so it’s never going to sell by the truckload.” The couple performed together across the country from the '70s until doctors diagnosed Hazel with multiple sclerosis in 1993. “Writing the book was therapeutic for both of us because we were able to get through some of the sadness and look back at the happy times,” Ron said. Ron met Hazel when he was a youth worker, and together they began to experiment with music during presentations to schools. “I found out she had a natural gift for harmony and a pretty voice, and music is a great communicator.” Soon the couple was playing folk gigs across Geelong at now-demolished venues like the Aberdeen Chateau and the old Geelong Hotel. He and Hazel played when “the disco craze“ came in and DJs slowly replaced live acts “with crates full of records and flashing lights”. They toured shopping centres on Australia’s the east coast five years after Hazel’s diagnosis before giving up music in 1998. “She was extremely sad because it had been such an important part of our lives for so many

Hazel and Ron Ellis in their musical heyday. years,” Ron said. “I didn’t want her to feel bad that she couldn’t do it. I just felt it left a big hole in my life.” But Ron returned to playing in 2010, and has since played at retirement homes around Geelong, while caring for his wife. “Because I was advancing on years myself, I sort of decided I’d focus on the senior market,” he said. He recently released a CD of his and Hazel’s best work to coincide with the launch of the book. “When I was playing them, my wife got a bit teary,” he said. “She remembered what she used to be able to do and how much she has actually lost through the inroads of MS in her life.” Ron, who grew up in Melbourne, remembered making Geelong his home as a young adult. “People said, ‘you’re going to sleepy hollow are you?’ You wouldn’t call it that now.” My Story, My Song, and My City is available at Books Around in central Geelong.

Teen themes suited to young cast By Luke Voogt

DARK SECRET: Grovedale's Shani Clarke plays Veronica Sawyer in Heathers The Musical. Lovely Banks director Christian Cavallo said his own experiences of suicide, homophobia and bullying helped understand the show’s mixture of darkness and comedy. The message in Heathers was of love and respect, he said. “And that’s why I knew it would be a project that I’d be happy to take on.”

The 30-year-old found himself being a “mentor" as often as a director. “I think there have been a few instances where cast members came to me after a discussion and said this has happened to me,” he said. “They’ve kind of just gotten to the end of their teenage years and that’s been helpful in telling the story.”

A graphic designer by day, Christian began acting at 13 and worked at Universal Studios in Japan. He tackles the issue of gun violence in the play with some very realistic props. “It didn’t want that to get confused in the irreverence of the show,” he said. Heathers The Musical runs at the Geelong Performing Arts Centre from 6 to 14 October.


Teenage suicide, homophobia and gun violence are just some of the hard-hitting themes of Heathers The Musical which have resonated with the play’s young cast. “We’ve come to pay homage to the writing because we’ve all felt connected in one way or another,” said cast member Shani Clarke. The Grovedale actress plays 17-year-old protagonist Veronica Sawyer in the confronting dark comedy, who struggles to be “cool but kind”. It’s a struggle the 22-year-old remembers from her own high school days. “The cool group wanted to feel better by putting other people down. Luckily I fell into a good group of friends, so I didn’t have to compromise any of those morals.” The play’s 1980s portrayal of topics like mental health showed how far society had come, Shani said. “This show presents these things in a shocking way, but the message is one of acceptance. We’re all damaged, we’re all freaks but that’s alright.” Heathers is the first GSODA production for the Melbourne-born Shani, who has sung and danced since age four. Her character Veronica falls in “what she thinks is love” with the sociopathic and tormented Jason Dean. “When you’re 17 and you feel that emotion, that’s your whole life and your whole world,“ Shani said. Belmont actor Conor Morel plays JD, a role he struggled with “early on”. “The character does stuff that is not representative of sociopathic behaviour,” the 20-year-old said. “They sort of just start knocking off the popular kids that have been giving them hell.” The show is Conor’s first for GSODA and an eyeopening glimpse into the world 30 years ago. “There were a lot of themes that had a pretty big impact on some of the cast," he said.

Marcia lyrical down memory lane By Justin Flynn Marcia Howard has laid her soul bare in her new album Everything Reminds Me. Having recently moved to Ocean Grove, the former Goanna band member and triple ARIAaward winner will launch the album in Geelong at the Workers Club tonight. She will follow it up with a gig at the Velvet Room in Thornbury tomorrow. “I’ve been coming and going here for years,” she said of her new home in Ocean Grove. “This album is in memory of my mother who died in 2014. I think what I am most proud about is that my son, Liam Gubbins, will open the show.” Goanna, which formed in Geelong in 1977, hit national fame with its classic song Solid Rock, a massive performer on the Aussie charts. Since then Howard auditioned for The Voice last year and was successful in getting through to Delta Goodrem’s team. Goanna fans were outraged when she failed to make Goodrem’s final top four performers. “I went on The Voice because I needed some promotion,” Howard says honestly. “I didn’t think I’d get on. One of the producers asked ‘Do you know Field of Gold, I think it would be a good one to do’? I learned the song in 20 minutes and eventually had a great time on the show.” Howard is a music teacher at Deakin University, and just hopes that people enjoy the album. “I grew up in a house full of music,” she said. “This is my passion. I’ve put my heart and soul and my tax return into this. I try to sing from the heart and I hope people like it.” Howard describes her style as a mixture of reggae, soul, gospel, country, folk and blues. “I’m really proud of this album,” she said.

Former Goanna band member Marcia Howard has released a new album. 173538 “What the guys in the band have brought to this album, wow, they really care. I have a lot of people who just care and that humbles me.”

Howard is also a staunch Richmond supporter and was over the moon at the Tigers premiership success.

“The Richmond Football Club won, and it’s the week we launch our album - you couldn’t script that,” she said.

Holistic approach

Join in on spring exploration cycle With spring well and truly in the air, what better time of year is there to dust off the bicycle, find a helmet, call up some friends and go for a ride. The challenge with that is people don’t always know who to call. This has all changed with the introduction of Life Cycle 55+ Explore Rides in Geelong. Life Cycle 55+ is a weekly group ride tailored to those aged 55 and over. It consists of a weekly ride around the bike trails and pathways of Geelong. For the co-ordinator of the ride, Chelsea Fisher, nothing beats getting out in the fresh air and exploring the bike paths and trails. “There’s a lot of trails in Geelong (and surrounds) that people aren’t aware of,” Chelsea explains “and also coffee shops - there are some great coffee shops. The rides provide opportunities for people to be active, and socialise over a coffee. Some great friendships have been formed through the course of our rides.” Chelsea has led the weekly ride for over 12 months now. It leave from outside Little Creatures Brewery at 10am each Friday. Every week she comes up with a fun local ride tailored to the weather and the riders ability. “I always come with fresh ideas. However riding along the waterfront on a clear day is one of my favourites - it’s gorgeous!” For more information on Life Cycle 55+ go to: www.lifecycle55.com <http://www.lifecycle55. com> or call Chelsea on: 0434 222 514.

The interior of Earth to Life’s new Pakington Street store. 173508

Low earth impact Earth to Life is Geelong’s latest one-stop sustainable shop in the city’s vibrant, cosmopolitan Pakington Street. Barbara and Neville Hull opened their newest store on Monday following the success of their first shop in Albury. “We’re committed to the Geelong area now,” Barbara says. “We’ve done a lot a research and know it’s going to fit beautifully with what we sell and what we do.” The wife and husband team found a gap in the local market for environmentally-friendly products. “There are a lot of products in Melbourne but not a lot in the regions,” Barbara says. They sell everything organic or environmentally friendly, from hemp and bamboo clothing to re-usable sandwich wraps and coffee cups. The growing market for sustainable goods in

Geelong - especially on Pako and in Torquay - fascinates Barbara. “There are some fantastic stores there and I really think we’ll complement what they do,” she says. Barbara focuses on researching new products and working with local artisans, a strategy she says worked at their Albury store. “We were just blown away when we set up the Albury shop nearly six years ago. Every week you come into our store you’ll see something new, including many Australian designed and made products.“ The company’s Sam Hamilton is the “friendly face” who will run the Geelong store. “He’s originally from Albury, and looking forward to settling into the Geelong region,” Barbara says. You can find Earth to Life at 129 Pakington Street or explore their extensive online store www. earthtolife.com.au

Susanne Smeeton believes in a holistic approach to healing, which is why she specialises in a number of different therapies. “I can really influence the mechanics of people’s bodies,” she says. Susanne practices Emmett Therapy, biodynamic craniosacral therapy, pelvic floor training and Bowen Therapy - developed by Geelong’s own Tom Bowen. Susanne Smeeton She and chiropractor husband Romney opened the Smeeton Clinic in Pakington Street, Geelong West, eight years ago after meeting overseas. “I really came into the heart of Bowen Therapy,“ Austrian expat Susanne says. “Romney was one of the few who was allowed to watch Tom Bowen.” About a quarter of Susanne’s clients are children, who her therapies can help with a number of issues including posture and generally feelings of discomfort, she says. “It’s a generation which will get massive trouble with their necks due to their use of tablets, smartphones and the like.” Even more of her clients are elderly, she says. “What I want to give to the elderly is quality of life.” Romney has practiced as a chiropractor for 40 years and came to Geelong more than two decades ago. With their combined expertise the couple can get you on the path to feeling better. “I want to introduce you to my unique and special treatments which are either almost unknown or undervalued in Australia,“ Susanne says. To find out more, phone 5222 1299 at the Smeeton Clinic at 246 Pakington Street, Geelong West or have a look at the website www.sogoodtobehere.com.

COMFORT FOOTWEAR for Women and Men

Good fit in shoes Tucked away at the Newtown end of Pakington Street, shoppers will find a unique shoe store. The Happy Shoe Shop has been in the old wool mill off Rutland Street for nearly five years. There is a strong focus on high quality comfort footwear that does not sacrifice on style. The store caters to women and men with a bit of kids thrown in the mix. It is so important in people’s busy lives that they take care of their feet. Staff members take the time and go the extra

mile to ensure a correct fit and go out of their way to find what they need if it is not already in store. Along with the wonderful shoes, shoppers will find fun socks, compression and travel socks, gifts, accessories and so much more. Shoppers are invited to come down and meet the friendly and helpful staff at The Happy Shoe Shop, where feet happiness is the shop’s business.

Benefit from regular dental checks and save that smile Visiting the dentist is about more than getting clean, shiny teeth. Regular dental visits can help prevent dental disease and find signs of disease early. This helps to keep the mouth healthy, which can save both time and money in the long run. Regular visits to a dentist can help stop tooth decay from causing bigger problems. Decay caught early can be reversed while untreated tooth decay can lead to cavities which can cause pain, loss of confidence and tooth loss, and treating decay or cavities can prevent them from getting worse. Early gum disease can be reversed and periodontal (gum) disease is the main cause of tooth loss and sometimes teeth or gums may not hurt even though there is gum disease. Anyone who notices that their gums are red, swollen or tender or that bleed when they brush or floss should visit a dentist as soon as possible. Another sign of gum disease is bad breath that won’t go away and treating gum disease early can prevent it from getting worse. Dentists will clean teeth to remove surface

Regular checks can prevent later problems.

stains and any tartar that has formed. They can also give tips for cleaning teeth, caring for gums and improving breath at home. A proper cleaning can also help prevent gum disease.

The first small Audi sedan with the RS package the RS 3 is a stunner visually and under the skin.


An excellent Bang and Olufsen sound system with 15-channel amplifier, 14 speakers with total output of 705 Watts was a $1495 option in our RS 3. Its output is magnificent. Power and torque are relentless in the way they drive all four wheels to overtake with a minimum of time on the wrong side of the road. Hills, what hills? The Audi simply ignores them. Select Sport mode and the exhaust is just glorious in the way it produces the snap-crackle-pop sounds we just love and the Audi Drive Select lets the driver control the opening and closing of the flaps individually. Electronic stability control and traction control have two modes - full operation and Sport. Pushing the button for more than three seconds disengages the ESC completely for more sporty handling, preferably during track days rather than when huge trees sit beside the road. The RS sports seats are deeply bolstered and may be too tight for those of more than average girth. They certainly hold the body firm during spirited driving and uneven road surfaces do make their presence felt. Powerful brakes are already part of the RS package. Carbon ceramic discs with grey calipers are an extra cost option. Squirt it along your favourite backroad driving route and you're guaranteed to smile. Handling is near neutral despite the nose-heavy bias. Throttle inputs are fast as the engine is probably at max torque all the time, so a fair degree of right-pedal input to the handling is there for the asking. The Audi virtual cockpit replaces analogue instruments. The fully digital instrument cluster with its 12.3-inch monitor presents all information and there is an additional RS screen to complement the two standard views. Audi RS 3 gives a full-on sports machine at a pretty modest price. Styling isn't over the top, but boy can it give Mustang owners and the like a shock away from the light.

Model range Audi RS3 quattro 2.5-litre turbo-petrol four-door sedan: $84,611 (automatic)




By Ewan Kennedy, Marque Motoring The Audi RS 3 provides strong driving enjoyment for those who want it all and want it now it is both a full-on sports machine and a family car. The RS 3 we tested was enhanced by an extended black high gloss styling package with added side air inlet ducts and front blade and trim strips on the side windows. The rear diffuser, side window frames, mirrors and horizontal struts are also in high gloss black. The 19-inch lightweight wheels sit inside 235/35 tyres. Audi can fit 255/30 tyres up front if requested. The power race with the Mercedes A45 continues but the extra 25 per cent of capacity of the Audi unit is giving it a big edge. It now has 294 kW of power, 24 kW up on its predecessor. Peak torque of 480 Nm comes in at just 1700 rpm and remains there all the way to 5850 revs. This powertrain can get the RS 3 sedan to 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds. Beside the RS 3 sedan’s engine is a seven-speed S tronic (double-clutch) automatic with ratios geared for performance in the lower end and a high seventh gear for reduced fuel consumption. It has steering wheel mounted paddles. Audi's famed quattro all-wheel-drive system shifts torque between front and rear axles, anything from 50 to 100 per cent can be sent to the back. Controls are by a rotary/push button on the centre console. The rotary/push button control features a touchpad. Front seat occupants can draw letters or numbers with their finger, swipe and zoom in the map. Voice control adds to the convenience. Online services are provided by Audi Connect. A smartphone interface integrates selected apps into the car using Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Navigation uses Google Earth and Google Street View. Satellite navigation-plus is standard and there are up to five free updates. Naturally there’s Bluetooth for audio streaming and handsfree phone. There’s 10 GB of flash memory for media storage, two card readers, an Aux connection and a USB interface with charging function.

SPORT Imports are key for Cats

Better catches as whiting bite



Jim Timberlake

Chris Pitman

Despite a cold and wet spring so far, cricketers across the region will be returning to the field this weekend, with hopes that a fresh start can eventually lead them to premiership glory in the not too distant future. The Geelong Cricket Club kicks off it’s campaign against Northcote in a one dayer at Kardinia Park tomorrow. The Cats will be keen to unveil their high profile new recruit Tim Ludeman. The former South Australian wicket keeper bastman believes a fresh start will help reinvigorate his career after being cut by the SACA and the Adelaide Strikers Big Bash franchise. Originally from Warrnambool, Ludeman will look to use some good form for Geelong to springboard back into state calculations, as well as a second chance in the Big Bash. Add to that the signing of English batsman Josh Cobb from Northamptonshire, and the Cats have the nucleus of a much stronger side. And with another year of development into their young guns, the coming season holds much promise for the Geelong Cricket Club. The Geelong Cricket Association also re-

Business on St Leonards’ ‘Bourke St’ began picking up last week. King George whiting numbers impressed anglers, with pippies and fresh squid baits working best. Whiting to 44cm were taken, with the average size around 36cm. Squid were holding over in 3m to 5m over nearby weed beds. Size 3 jigs worked well. Clifton Springs’ snapper action was still fickle. Lightly rigged pilchards fished on a tide change accounted for fish to 6kg taken along Wilson Spit. Trelly’s Fishing World Geelong’s Adam Van Der Lugt fished Corio Bay’s inner-harbour with soft plastics on Monday morning. He boated snapper to 60cm and almost 3kg around the jetties near St Helens, along with bream to 35cm. Queenscliff really turned on the big squid, with anglers fishing baited jigs deep boating specimens to 2kg. Gummy sharks remained busy offshore, with anglers doing well on Australian salmon baits fished in 30m to 40m. The odd snapper were also taken in similar areas. Freshwater fishos casting lures at Deep Lake landed a mix of brown and rainbow trout to 2kg. White Tassie Devils worked best, although Powerbait on running sinker rigs also caught fish. Lake Elignmite had excellent trout for patient anglers. Tassie Devils were again a good choice of lure. Highton’s St Augustines Water Holes had plenty of rainbow trout which were released for school holidays. Powerbait and Rapala F-5s should get the job done. Next week’s rising water temperatures should see the gummies continue biting offshore, while Queenscliff Bight will continue producing thumping squid. Freshwater anglers could try Lake Purrumbete for monster brown trout.

sumes, and after an off-season of restructuring, its a chance for all clubs to find their feet and kick off their campaigns in whatever division they find themselves. Division One has dropped two clubs to become a 10-club division, while Division Two and Three will both run with eight. That leaves the clubs without turf facilities to compete in the Hardwicket competition, these clubs being mainly the country clubs. Not all clubs were happy with the restructuring, so much so that Little River, Inverleigh and Winchelsea chose to break away from the GCA and join the Bellarine Cricket Association. Not only has there been huge changes to where clubs find themselves, but also a multitude of player movements around town, with some high profile transfers taking place. Reigning Division One premier Grovedale continues to go from strength to strength, adding talented South Barwon duo Luke Ford and Anthony Quarrell to their list. Both additions will see the Tigers once again start favourites. St Joseph’s will look to regroup after their narrow grand final loss, the addition of Rhys Burke from Bell Post Hill should help to alleviate the loss of Francis Gill and Trent Walerys to retirement.

East Belmont have recruited Hawthorn keeper batsman Lochy Inglis and English fast bowler Alex Willerton, while North Geelong welcome a new coach to Osborne Park with Nathan Fitzpatrick taking the reigns after moving from Bendigo. With only 10 teams, and a final four only to compete in the finals, every game will be crucial and should make for some tight and exciting cricket. Bell Post Hill and St Peter’s were the two clubs to drop down to Division Two, while Thomson were probably the most unlucky club, dropping to the new Division Three after competing in last seasons preliminary final. Hardwicket draws are close to being finalised after a tight deadline for clubs to nominate for affiliation.

More women should saddle up for the region’s premier mountain bike marathon in February, according to organisers and a defending champion. The next Otway Odyssey would have a “particular focus” on increased female participation, the organisers said. Next year’s event would incorporate an Otway Angels program to help women overcome “barriers” to mountain bike racing. Otway Angels included skills programs, partnerships, networking opportunities and other events “to help improve the accessibility of the sport to female riders”, the organisers said. Shorty 50km champion and event ambassador Kim Willocks welcomed the initiative, saying she

would “love” to see more women competing. “Peddling through the bush on a mountain bike during a race, a social ride or even solo is so fulfilling,” Willocks said. “My advice to any females considering entering an event like the Otway Odyssey, who are a little apprehensive about taking the leap, is to choose an event like the 30km Pioneer designed for beginner riders, train as much as you have time for, and just have fun and enjoy the moment. “This will be my fourth time racing the Odyssey. I love testing myself by racing my bike, especially through the bush alongside equally competitive riders.” Four time 100km Odyssey champion and

reigning Queen of the Otways Peta Mullens said the event was her first “challenge”. “Over the years the course has changed, and it’s gone from my most feared (cross-country event) to my most loved,” Mullens said. “I remember the walking and the mud in the early days. Instead of beastly climbs, the track is made up of flowy single track for days - it really is a mountain biker’s marathon with all the sick single tracks.” Entries opened this week for the event’s several categories, including the blue-ribbon 100km Odyssey.
