A newly-announced Australian Space Agency should make Geelong its home, according to former mayor Darryn Lyons. “Why wouldn’t you want it here?” he said. “Space is big business - look at the money the industry makes internationally.” Mr Lyons’ call followed Innovation Minister Michaelia Cash announcing $26 million in the federal budget to establish the 21st Century agency. Former CSIRO boss Megan Clark will head the agency in Canberra during its first six months but the government is yet

to name a permanent location. The agency would help triple Australia’s domestic space industry to $12 billion by 2030, creating up to 20,000 new jobs, Ms Cash announced in Perth on Monday. The Western and South Australian governments were lobbying “heavily“ for the agency, with New South Wales and Victoria also bidding, InnovationAus.com reported. But Mr Lyons said Geelong’s advanced manufacturing expertise and growing public sector made it an ideal location for the agency. “We have an incredible situation,” he said. Continued page 2

From front page “People don’t realise how sensational the manufacturing is down here. It’s been a great success story.” Mr Lyons said the agency would help raise the profile of Geelong and Deakin University’s advanced manufacturing hub, ManuFutures. “We’re sending parts of everything all over Australia and the world.” An international terminal under construciton at Avalon Airport would further enhance Geelong as a site for agency, Mr Lyons said. Hundreds of IT professionals could also move to Geelong in the near future with companies like LiveTiles basing their new headquarters in the city. The software company announced last November it would move to Geelong, creating 500 jobs. Mr Lyons urged Geelong’s federal and state MPs to lobby the Commonwealth to bring the space agency here. “I don’t understand why you wouldn’t be lobbying, but I wouldn’t hold my breath. “There’s been a very distinct lack of fight by our politicians - state and federal - to get things to Geelong. “There’s no vision and no passion.” Labor’s Federal Member for Corio, Richard Marles, declined to say whether he would lobby for the agency to settle in Geelong. But Mr Marles said Geelong was wellplaced to take advantage of the “blossoming“ space industry. “This is absolutely an industry that Geelong could be a part of,” he said. “Geelong has been at the forefront of manufacturing but also high-tech manufacturing because of the work that has been done by Deakin. “Government needs to be speaking to a place like Geelong about the opportunities this represents.” The Indy contacted Corangamite MP Sarah Henderson for comment but she failed to respond before the Indy went to press yesterday.

IN BRIEF

Fury as violent sex creep back in town By Luke Voogt The release of a convicted sex offender has enraged Geelong residents who took to social media to slam the Victorian justice system this week. Anton Mravak, 49, was back on the street after serving time for sexual assault, unlawful assault, possessing a controlled weapon and loitering near children as a convicted sex offender. Police arrested Mravak in central Geelong last September for the offences, to which he pleaded guilty in Geelong Magistrates’ Court this February via video link. The offences occurred in central Geelong and Highton between February and September 2017, the court heard. Mravak was caught loitering at a bus stop on South Valley Road, Highton, last year, near a number of schools, the court heard.

The Victorian County Court convicted Mravak of raping and sexually abusing two men in November 2010. Magistrate Michael Coghlan noted Mravak’s prior conviction for rape, sentencing him to eight months jail and putting him on the Victorian Register of Sex Offenders for life. Reports Mravak was free to roam Geelong emerged on social media on Wednesday, enraging residents. “Why on Earth was he released?” Bettina Plummer asked. “How did that eight-month sentence turn into only three months?” Brett Robb queried. “(He) only went away in February.“ “Dirty scumbag! Just another one let out into society,” D’Anne Walter said. Sources confirmed to Indy yesterday afternoon that the convicted sex offender was free. A Corrections Victoria spokesperson de-

clined to confirm whether Mravak served his full term, saying the authority would not comment on individual cases. Mravak spent 140 days in custody before pleading guilty in February. Geelong Inspector Gary Bruce declined to comment on individual cases but said police monitored registered sex offenders closely. “We have a responsibility to monitor certain people, which we do on a regular basis,” he said. Legislation requires registered sex offenders to report their movements and personal details to police, who can arrest them if they fail to do so. “We make every effort to ensure they comply with the legislation,” Insp Bruce said. He advised anyone with concerns to contact their local police station. “We will respond to any issue around public safety if it is reported to us.”

‘Frogs’ give Cat insight on homeless kids By Luke Voogt Geelong Cats player Renee Garing has seen the adversity homeless youths face firsthand. “I used to help with what was known as the Geelong City Frogs,” the club’s female vicecaptain said. “You can imagine the challenges they have not having a bed to sleep in all the time. “The kids that I met there, a lot of them had received help from the Salvation Army.” Renee has continued to support homeless kids through the Salvos, despite the Geelong City Frogs closing down. For several years she has coordinated a “dedicated” group of students and their parents at Christian College Geelong, collecting donations for the Red Shield Appeal. Renee collected for Salvos as a student at the college, which had been involved in the appeal for more than 20 years, she said. “I love doing it each year and organising the kids. I’ve been involved in it since I started teaching,” Renee was at the Geelong launch of the Red Shield Appeal yesterday and next weekend her group will collect donations in Belmont and Grovedale. Cats big man Mark Blicavs joined Renee for the launch at Kardinia Park. “The club’s been amazing in terms of opportunities in the programs they run and with our jobs outside of footy,” Renee said. About 800 Geelong residents, including students from Geelong Grammar and Christian College, will attempt to raise $110,000 for the appeal next weekend.

Lead alarm People “don’t need to worry” if they used any of the 30 Geelong drinking fountains now closed after tests detected water lead levels above health guidelines, according to City Hall. The guidelines were “very conservative” and public fountains were not “the main source of drinking water”, City Hall said while announcing that further testing was underway.

‘Robber’ remanded A Winchelsea man was on bail when he held up central Geelong’s Bendigo Bank with a knife last Friday, a magistrate has heard. The 55-year-old was remanded to reappear in court on 3 August over attempted charges covering armed robbery, assault and committing offences while on bail.

Behaviour ‘improves’ “Roaming” children have returned to school after a crackdown on antisocial behaviour around Lara’s skate park and shopping centre, according to police social media. Fifty-two offenders including burglars and car thieves “came under attention” during the operation, which traders credited with a change in “attitude” around the area, police posted this week.

Badminton coup Disabled athletes will play the world’s fastest racquet sport when Geelong hosts international badminton championships later this year, organisers have announced. More than 150 competitors would attend the Australian Para-Badminton International and Oceania Para-Badminton Championships in November after Geelong secured rights to host the 2018 tournament, the organisers said.

Men arrested Police have arrested two men who ran from a crashed car after a chase from North Geelong to Newtown. Police alleged the car reached speeds up to 120km before hitting a tree after the men, aged 18 and 20, failed to stop for a routine check at a 7-Eleven around 3.15am Thursday.

Turbine deal

RED ROVER: Geelong midfielder Renee Garing and Salvo's mascot Shieldy prepare for the Red Shield Appeal. (Marc Salazar) But Geelong Salvos' Stephen Wallis said the charity desperately needed another 200 people to give a few hours of their time over the weekend. “We cannot do this alone,” he said. “Volunteers are the lifeblood of what we do.” The Salvos would use money from the appeal to support its many social programs in-

cluding rehab, emergency housing and financial counselling, Stephen said. In a typical week the Salvos provided 17,000 beds, 40,000 meals and refuge for more than 100 women suffering domestic violence, he said. “We all have the opportunity to be beacons of hope for others.”

Geelong researchers will work on making wind turbines stronger using high-tech materials in a partnership with “wind energy solution provider” Vestas, Deakin University has announced. Deakin’s Carbon Nexus institute would work with the company on boosting the compressive strength of materials used in wind turbines after the signing of an agreement between Vestas and the university on Thursday, Deakin said.

IDAHOBIT celebrated Barwon Health has hosted an IDAHOBIT Day “celebration” with Victoria’s Commissioner for Sexuality and Gender Equality as guest speaker. Thursday’s “sold-out” event featured Ro Allen as Barwon Health marked 28 years since the World Health Organisation declassified homosexuality as a mental disorder.

DOUBLE TAKE

City leads in growth stats Geelong has emerged as the fastest-growing city in regional Australia, according to new population data. Government departments and businesses moving to Geelong were driving the growth, said City Hall acting investment director Tim Ellis. “The tremendous growth in employment in central Geelong is reflective of the fact that government and businesses alike are choosing our city for their headquarters,“ Mr Ellis said on Monday. “The large increase in the number of buildings demonstrates the commitment of government and industry to investment in infrastructure in our city.” Council this week released findings from a recent study that analysed land use, industry and employment data from more than 3500 establishments. The study also included population data from Australian Bureau of Statistics. The project provided a snapshot of businesses and properties in central Geelong from July to November. “By working together to provide data we have gained a valuable snapshot that we can all use for effective planning,” Mr Ellis said. Employment in Central Geelong was up 44 per cent from 2011 census data, taking the total of jobs to 30,476. The health and social assistance industry in Geelong almost doubled since 2011, up from 5987 jobs to 11,782 in 2017, according to the study. There were 3599 jobs in public adminis-

GROWTH: Cranes dominate Geelong's skyline as new public service headquarters drive local growth. tration and 3341 in education and training in 2017. The total number of buildings rose from 1034 to 1114 and the total number of establishments from 3281 to 3550. The number of cafes, bistros and restaurants also rose to a total of 238 in 2017. Council released the data after recently announcing plans to expand Geelong's population by 110,000 to the city’s north and west. The Indy reported last week that the additional residents would be housed in two growth areas, each around the size of southern Geelong's Armstrong Creek zone. The new areas would be centred around Lovely Banks and Batesford, with 48,000 and 62,000 residents respectively.

At the risk of horrifying the region’s many marine conservationists, apparently their scientific leadership is in cahoots with offshore oil and gas operators. Yes, that’s right, the scientists are settled with Big Oil (and Gas). Well, that was the message between the lines from Deakin University’s recent revelation that the scientists were relying on the oil and gas sector to unravel the mysteries of “the deep sea”. According to Deakin, the miners’ high-tech remote-controlled vehicles for sniffing out resources down deep provide a first-class free ride for finding out what’s also living all the way down there, in areas including our very own Bass Strait. Hitching rides with the miners represented big savings for cash-strapped scientists short the usual $200,000 daily cost of operating similar vehicles, explained Deakin’s Peter Macreadie. “What we’re talking about is a rare and unusual collaboration between two strange bedfellows, the oil and gas industry and scientists, because no one is exploring the deep sea better than that sector,” he said. “Strange bedfellows” indeed! Meanwhile, Double Take’s prediction last September of a public-service travel bonanza from City Hall joining UNESCO’s Creative Cities Network is coming to pass sooner than expected. With over 116 members member cities spread across the world, and for the simple fact council was joining a network rather than a circle of pen-pals, international networking was inevitable. And it didn’t take long for council to get creative with the opportunities! UNESCO had only approved Geelong’s membership in November before councillors unanimously ticked off on an $18,000 international “study tour” for the mayor and a senior staffer five months later. Then this week the comes the news that the travel costs run both ways, with ratepayers also flying out a public servant from Detroit, USA, for the launch of Geelong’s network designation as a “City of Design” this week. And it’s only May! No wonder Avalon Airport’s finally building an international terminal.

$1.4m lotto win ‘bother’

By Luke Voogt Geelong’s half-billion-dollar shipping industry could be under threat from encroaching developments such as a planned office complex nearby, a maritime expert has warned. “We’re keen to ensure that whatever development takes place around the port it doesn’t impinge on port activities,” Victorian Regional Channels Authority chief Michael Harvey said. Businesses moving goods through the Port of Geelong relied heavily on transport corridors to get cargo to the wharf, Mr Harvey said. Development too close to the port could lead to harmful curfews and limits on truck movements and size, harming businesses already operating on fine margins, he explained. “We need to ensure we don’t cut off growth options by cutting off land access. “When you get residential developments people don’t like industrial activity happening nearby.” The warning comes as the authority draws up a new development strategy for port’s future. In 2016-17 13.5 million tonnes of cargo, worth $7.8 billion, passed through the port generating $570 million for the local economy and supporting 1700 jobs. But more bulk and liquid cargoes, like grain, fertilizer and oil, were coming to Geelong each year as the Port of Melbourne grew busier, Mr Harvey said. Victoria’s second container port was 37 years away meaning this figure would continue to grow, he said. But competition for land use near the port threatened this growth, Mr Harvey said. He was taking a “keen interest” in plans to redevelop the disused Powerhouse building in North Geelong into a seven-storey office complex, he said.

Bed Settees

UNDER THREAT: Developments near Geelong’s port could affect the local $570 million shipping industry and (inset) concept drawings for a new North Geelong office complex. “You’ve got a lot of vehicles and truck movements in that area.” The building would overlook the port, posing security risks for shipping activities, he said. “We are certainly in discussion with that developer on how that might impact port activities.” Geelong’s council is yet to approve a planning permit for the proposal after public advertising concluded on 3 May. But the company behind the project, David

Hamilton Property Group, wanted to avoid impacting on port activities, according to managing director Cameron Hamilton. “In fact we want enhance them,” he said. “The whole premise of our existence is to exist and operate within the constraints with the port.” The company would work closely with surrounding industries and groups to create a “growth plan for Geelong that benefits everyone and doesn’t impact existing land users,” Mr Hamilton said.

A mystery winner has come forward to collect a $1.4 million lottery prize after buying a ticket at Portarlington The Portarlington woman was shocked to discover she was the person lotto officials were still trying to track down on Monday morning following Saturdays’ draw. “I’m very hot and bothered,” she said when she phoned to confirm the win later that day. “Could you write that down?” The woman bought the winning ticket at Portarlington Authorised News but did not register her entry, meaning officials had to wait for her to come forward. She was one of 14 division one winning entries in a $20 million draw on Saturday, who each took home $1,428,571. “I’ve been playing TattsLotto since it started and the most I’ve ever won is division two about ten years ago,” she told a lotto official over the phone. The woman, who chose to remain anonymous, said she would use the windfall to help her loved ones. “I don’t need anything so I’m going to share it with my family.” Portarlington Authorised News owner Darryn Sedgmen was thrilled to have sold another division one winning entry. “That’s just fantastic,“ he said. “Great to hear it has been claimed and it hasn’t been lost. I hope it was a wonderful Mother’s Day present for her.” The ticket was the second division one winning entry Mr Sedgmen had sold in 10 months. “It’s been great for the town,” he said. “As soon as we found out we had sold a winner we put the word out and people have already been coming in checking to see if it’s them.“ 12388369-EPJ20-18

Geelong's council has paid to fly in a keynote speaker from Detroit weeks after voting to send Mayor Bruce Harwood on an $18,000 'study tour'. Design Core Detroit director Ellie Schneider spoke on Wednesday at the launch of Geelong's designation as a 'city of design' in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network. "Ms Schneider is being hosted by the City of Greater Geelong and the City has provided her with economy class flights to attend," said council's investment director Tim Ellis. "No other representatives have travelled to Geelong for (Wednesday's) launch." Expedia.com currently lists return economy flights from Melbourne to Detroit ranging from about $1200 to $2000. The expense comes after council on 24 April voted to send Cr Harwood on a 16-day, $18000 'study tour' in June. Cr Harwood will represent Geelong at a UNESCO Creative Cities Network annual general meeting in Poland, before travelling to Scotland, Italy and Malaysia. Geelong became 'city of design' in the network under the State Government appointed administrators in 2017. Victorian taxpayers and Geelong-based charity Creative Futures contributed $20,000 for a "website to support the application" for the network, Mr Ellis said. The City of Greater Geelong, Deakin University and the Australian Centre for Design provided "in-kind support," he added.

CREATIVE TRAVELLERS: Detroit's Ellie Schneider and Mayor Bruce Harwood at Geelong Library. City Hall chose Ms Schneider because Detroit's history was similar to Geelong's and her role as the network's design sub-group coordinator, Mr Ellis said. Ratepayers Geelong president Andrew Senia has been critical of the city's membership of the network, describing it as an excuse for "overseas jaunts". "The ratepayers are sick and tired of it," he told the Indy last month. "Who knows where the next trip will be and how much it will cost." But Cr Harwood this week described the membership as a great honour. "We are now part of an esteemed list of amazing cities including Bilbao, Buenos Aires, Shanghai, Istanbul and Singapore," he said.

Ex-pollie on run ‘80-plus’ By Luke Voogt Stewart McArthur is still running at "80 plus a bit" in his quest to emulate a Victorian who won an 875km ultramarathon at age 61. "Be like Cliff Young and keep going," he told the Indy as he prepared for his 14th consecutive Great Ocean Road half marathon The South Geelong octogenarian was a longtime admirer of Young, a farmer who ran from Melbourne to Sydney in gumboots and overalls in 1983. The 61-year-old Young completed the event in five days, bereft of dentures, and generously gave his $10,000 prize to the next five runners. In a similarly remarkable feat, Stewart has run in the Great Ocean Road half marathon since it began in 2005. He completed the race in two hours and 34 minutes last year, slower than his first half marathon of one hour and 57 minutes at a spritely 64 in 2002. "I'm a bit slow these days," he said. "My only concession to age is I get walk the drink station positively for two minutes." The former Corangamite MP has long been a supporter of Great Ocean Road Running Festival and will run in the half marathon again this weekend. "The scenery is world class and the hills are not as daunting as one might imagine," he said." "In ten years' time it will be one of the top running events in Australia." Stewart planned to run the half marathon until "at least 85," he said. "It keeps me fit and I can handle the stress

KEEP RUNNING: Stewart McArthur crosses the line in the Great Ocean Road half marathon in 2017.

and strain of life - once you get into a routine you just keep going." He began running "seriously" after a disappointing fun run in 2000. "I was bit slack so I said to myself, 'lift your game," he said. Stewart now runs 6km a day and two half marathons a year. "I'm on the running track at quarter to six and I'm on the train to Melbourne at 8am," he said. "I get a very positive start to the day." He has since run at the World Masters Games in Turin, Sydney and Melbourne, and last year won the silver medal in Auckland. But Stewart had been jogging for 20-plus years before he decided to run "seriously", following a serious car accident in 1978, he explained. "It encouraged me to look after my health." On 27 March Stewart's son Andrew died while cycling in a tragic road accident in Sydney. Andrew's athletic pursuits had inspired him to keep going, he said. "He was a very dedicated athlete, tri-athlete and bike rider - much better than his father." Stewart was the Liberal Party Corangamite MP in the Australian House of Representatives from February 1984 until 2007. Stewart will join more than 7000 runners and walkers competing in events ranging from the 1.5km Kids’ Gallop to a 60km ultra marathon over the weekend. Julian Spence will attempt to win his fourth consecutive Great Ocean Road marathon, as he joins competitors running from Lorne to Apollo Bay on Sunday morning.

Around 440 jobs are on the way to the Geelong region after work started on building Avalon Airport’s international terminal, according to federal Treasurer Scott Morrison. Mr Morrison officially launched the terminal’s construction last Friday, heralding a “landmark boost” for the region’s economy. His government’s 2018 budget allocated $20 million to the project ahead of AirAsia relocating its Melbourne operations to Avalon later this. AirAsiaX Malaysia aims to operate twicedaily flights between Avalon and Kuala Lumpur, which would offer flight links to more than 130 other international destinations. About 400,000 passengers would pass through the terminal annually, Mr Morrison said. The construction phase would provide more than 80 jobs but the international flights would deliver another 190 full-time at the airport and a further 170 in the surround-

ing region, he said. The additional 170 jobs would flow from new opportunities in tourism and exports such as fresh food. Mr Morrison hoped the terminal would also provide a “catalyst for more international airlines” at Avalon. He credited the delivery of the terminal funding to Corangamite MP Sarah Henderson, who faces a difficult battle retaining her seat at the next federal election after proposed boundary realignments. Ms Henderson welcomed the start of construction. “This project is a huge boost for our region’s economy and is the start of great things to come,” she said. “I thank the Treasurer for making this $20 million commitment to the Avalon Airport so that we have the facilities needed to welcome and process international visitors.”

Uni in boost to city living Hundreds more university students are set to move into central Geelong after the official opening of a new $50 million apartment building. About 160 students had already moved into the 11-storey Brougham Street building for this year’s first trimester and the rest would arrive before the third, Deakin University said. Brougham House would eventually accommodate 410 students, Deakin said. The building gives occupants a view over Geelong’s waterfront, although plans for a convention centre on an adjacent university car park could eventually obscure their view. Brougham House is the university’s second student accommodation development in central Geelong, with the university also housing 33 students in a refurbished T&G building on the corner of Moorabool and Ryrie streets. Deakin vice-chancellor Professor Jane den Hollander officially opened the Brougham street building last Friday. “Deakin is delighted to be able to offer students a home that is centrally located to Geelong and moments from the Waterfront Campus, along with access to the free University shuttle bus service to Waurn Ponds, and to the train station,” Professor den Hollander said. “We know that having high-quality, affordable housing close to their university campus is directly tied to student success, so we are thrilled that our students will have this stateof-the-art modern building to call home, with one of the best outlooks in Victoria. “Our students deserve the best and providing an environment in which they can thrive is a major focus for Deakin.”

OPENING: Jane den Hollander. The apartments herald a new boom in central Geelong’s residential numbers, with two high-rise apartment projects under construction and more on the way. Work has started on a 21-stoery Miramar development in Cavendish Street, while more residents will pile into The Mercer’s 15 storeys upon completion. Both developments sold most apartments off-the-plan, with industry sources suggesting that investors represented a high proportion of the buyers. Apartment living has flourished along Geelong’s waterfront area and on nearby former commercial sites in recent years after the limited success of a push for shop-top living in the central business district.

ANY SIZE FOR THE PRICE OF A

SINGLE

Big win then leader gone By Luke Voogt A man who helped shape Geelong watched at home as his beloved Cats demolished the Giants before dying peacefully in his sleep. Geoff Neilson spent his final moments in happiness, son Tim told friends and family at Geoff's funeral last Friday. “The Geelong players certainly didn’t know it but they made his last evening on earth a very enjoyable one,” Tim said. Donald Geoffrey Neilson, 88, died of natural causes on 4 May in an aged care home at Newtown. But he left a legacy as a leading businessman and benefactor in Geelong, and a key figure in the founding of Deakin University in the 1970s. Tim described his father as a humble sportsman, who had a lifelong passion for music and St David’s Church in Newtown. He won two cricket premierships but “never claimed to be one of the stars of the team,” Tim said. “By remarkable coincidence father hit the winning runs in (the first) premiership ... and took the match-winning catch in the (second).” But footy was Geoff’s sporting forte and he fell just short of the Geelong Football Club’s senior side after playing in the reserves. He never stopped following the Cats, Tim said. Geoff’s daughter Heather Neilson also spoke at the funeral, describing him as “the finest man I had ever known.” As a “Protestant gentleman“ Geoff was generous and serene but hardworking and disciplined, she said.

LEGACY: Geoff Neilson at the opening of building in his honour at Marcus Oldham College in 2012.

“In 58 years, whatever pain or provocation he suffered, I never once heard him swear - not once - nor ever say a spiteful thing about anyone. “He could express criticism, yes, but never with spite.” Geoff began his career as a junior clerk in his father’s and uncle’s accountancy firm, Nielson and Nielson, in 1948. He excelled in the finance industry before becoming president of the Australian Institute of Chartered Accountants in 1980. For decades Geoff served on Deakin University’s council, becoming deputy chancellor in 1996 for two years before retiring. He also helped found the Geelong Community Foundation and Marcus Oldham Agricultural College. Geoff served on the councils of various local colleges, which came to value his astute financial management, according to a Geelong College historical page. He was a life member of Geelong Chamber of Commerce and president of both Geelong YMCA and Geelong Rotary Club.

We need a new anti-littering campaign. BB, Geelong West Buckets to whoever keyed a car correctly parked in Bellerine St, South Geelong, on 5 May.

I caught a train home to Marshall on a recent Friday afternoon. The scheduled train arrival at Marshall was six minutes before the departure of a bus service to Ocean Grove. Unfortunately, my train was delayed a few minutes at Geelong. Coming into Marshall I was relieved to see the bus waiting at the station but to my horror it took off before the train even reached the platform. If the bus was unprepared to wait for its connecting train service to arrive why should have it come to the train station at all? Apparently this happens on a regular basis. I had to wait 40 minutes in the cold and rain until the next bus arrived. Thank goodness I wasn’t elderly or sick. The operator must improve its service D Diment Armstrong

The Alliance for Gambling reform continually bleats about governments banning or reducing the number of machines in venues but overlooks the fact that state government, at least here in Victoria, has made contracts with the industry that apply for years into the future. Consequently, nothing can be done about anything to do with the number of machines et cetera until the contracts expire. As such, until contract-renewal time it is a matter not so much of gambling responsibly but of legislating responsibly because our State Government is just as addicted to pokies as some of we are but is on the receiving end of the dollars. Perhaps, then, it might be better if governments were only able to make poker machine contracts for a few years into the future instead of 20? Gary Oraniuk Geelong West

In stark but benign contrast to the horrific views of Double Take (Geelong Indy, 11 May), my family thoroughly enjoyed SpringDing and appreciated of the efforts of its chairman, Barry Solomon, and his colleagues as well as the huge number of participating volunteers, councils, community groups and other organisations. SpringDing was a week of fun-filled family events. Perhaps we went home too early to experience the horrors Double Take described. I seem to recall that Gala Day was held during SpringDing, it then being an all-day festival with morning and evening parades and stalls and rides along Malop St and the bay end of Moorabool St. As a disclosure, this writer’s daughter, Rachel, was a SpringDing Princess in 1988 or thereabouts.

In November 2017 the key snapped in the ignition while I was away from home, causing me much grief at the time. On returning to Geelong I went straight to the dealer’s accessories department with the broken key. The car had travelled only 19,500km and was still in warranty. Regardless, I was told a new key would cost nearly $500 and was not covered under the warranty, even though the car can’t be entered without the key. The accessories manager took a photo of the key and said it should be replaced, but it was not to be. I phoned the brand’s head office several times, eventually to be told I would be given $200 toward a new key. I phoned the dealership manager many times over two months to find out when I would receive the new key but return calls never happened. I eventually obtained a new key, which cost me $315. Yes, I am every angry about this, especially since everyone who saw the broken key said it was faulty. After persisting with the key replacement

Make exporting shipshape Live-sheep export must continue. The problem is that shipping standards must be enforced. Banning the exports would solve nothing, just punish innocent farmers. Importers would only purchase live sheep from other countries that might not have the shipping standards demanded in Australia. It is also in the importers’ interests that higher standards are enforced. Darryl Rowe Clifton Springs

Pollies in twilight zone Am I the only one who bemoans that our major political parties are full of mediocre time servers whose sole interest is the pursuit of personal power and influence?

Mask off for comedy icon

BEHIND THE CLOWN: Legendary comedian Barry Humphries comes to Geelong this month.

After more than 60 years of holding the mirror to Australia through his iconic characters, Barry Humphries will give Geelong a look behind the mask. The legendary comedian spins the mirror around to reveal “the man behind the clown” when he comes to Geelong Performing Arts Centre (GPAC) on 2 June. “It is really about this character called me. I’m not in disguise,” the 84-year-old said. “In a way, this is perhaps the bravest thing I’ve ever done and, I hope, the most entertaining. “I think people might be agreeably shocked and they certainly will learn much they didn’t know.” Humphries has spent the better part of his life playing the world-famous Dame Edna Everage and Aussie icons Sir Les Paterson and Sandy Stone. In his latest tour he instead looks at himself, remembering his childhood, relationships and career as one of the world’s most acclaimed entertainers. “This is a show in which I am the principal character - it’s not Les, it’s not Edna, it’s not Sandy Stone,” he said. The show would feature highly personal, sometimes startling and occasionally outrageous stories, he said. “It is the story of my generation, it is a story of a life spent in the theatre and a life spent in comedy, and it will show of what it is like to be a clown.”

But it could be hard to keep Edna, Les and Sandy from making cheeky appearances, even in show dedicated to their less flamboyant alter-ego, Humphries admitted. “They may intrude,” he hinted. “I might be interrupted. I might even be upstaged! “Audio-visual technology has made dramatic strides in my life and it’s now possible for me to be on stage with one of my own characters.” Humphries had retired from “relentlessly touring” but was looking forward to introducing Australians to a new phase in his creative life, he said. “I’m enjoying myself on stage more than ever, thanks to my dear friend, the Australian audience.” He promised audiences a solo performance filled with laughter, drama and surprise, and the chance to ask questions after. “I’m rather proud of what I’ve done in my career,” he said. “It’s constantly surprising, it’s very stimulating and it’s wonderful to look back on, and to look forward to. “It’s still going strong, and with a vengeance.” Humphries will perform the two intimate, confessional shows at GPAC at 2pm and 8pm on 2 June.

West End veteran Philip Gould returns to Geelong next week with a tribute to Frank Sinatra and the many women in his life. Frankly Sinatra tells the fascinating life story of Ol’ Blue Eyes through music, narration and images. Fellow music theatre stalwarts Michelle Fitzmaurice and Michael Cormick join Gould to sing and dance their way through 22 hit songs like My Way, Fly Me to the Moon and High Hopes. The show will also features hits from the women in Frank’s life, including Nancy Sinatra, Liza Minelli and Judy Garland. Frankly Sinatra comes to Geelong Performing Arts Centre for two performances at The Playhouse, on 23 and 24 May at 10.30am. Then in June it’s time to head Downtown with the songs of Petula Clark. Melissa Langton performs the toe-tapping songs of Clark, who during the height of Beatlemania battled the fab four for number one on the charts- and came out on top. Downtown - The Songs of Petula Clark comes to The Playhouse on 13 and 14 June.

Five icons of Australian music will bring their classic hits back to Geelong as the Good Times Tour hits the city next Sunday. The yearly tour returns for a sixth time featuring Brian Cadd, Marcia Hines, Russell Morris, Leo Sayer and John Paul Young. Singer-songwriter Brian Cadd returns with hits like A Little Ray of Sunshine, which saw him rise to fame in the late-1960s with bands The Groop and Axiom. Cadd went on to write songs for superstars including Ringo Starr, John Farnham and Bonnie Tyler before making the ARIA Hall of Fame in 2017. Joining Cadd onstage is Marcia Hines, who has sold 2.6 million albums since moving from Boston to Australia at age 16 in 1970 to star onstage in Hair. Hines featured in the Australian charts for decades before becoming a judge on Australian Idol and an advocate for diabetes research. Fellow expat Leo Sayer tours alongside Marcia, after a prolific career which saw him sell 18 million albums and win a Grammy. Since his debut smash hit The Show Must Go On in 1973, Sayer has recorded more than 20 top 10 singles and written for the likes of Tina Turner and Dolly Parton. The UK singer songwriter moved to Australia in 2005 and later became an Australian citizen. With Sayer is 'The Real Thing', Russell Morris, who won his way to fame with the aforementioned Aussie anthem. Audiences will journey back in time with the ARIA Hall-of-Famer as he plays hits like Hush and Wings of an Eagle. Morris’ more recent blues and roots releases Sharkmouth, Van Diemen’s Land and Red Dirt Red Heart have all also reached the top 10

A perfect stop The Ponds Hotel is the perfect place to stop for coffee or breakfast on your way to the coast with its new cafe. The hotel has sold quality, affordable meals since the 1970s and has now added premium Julius Meinl coffee to the menu. “It’s a good atmosphere, you can come in, sit and relax before shopping,” says hotel manager Margaret Spence. The new cafe stocks all the favourites, like home-made muffins, fresh water creek sponges and fuchsias - with gluten-free options available. Since the cafe opened a month ago it’s served breakfast every Saturday and Sunday from 8.30am. “There were often people in the car park waiting for the hotel to open before we had the cafe,” Margaret says. The cafe has options from a traditional English breakfast to a simple muesli to give coastal drivers energy for the day. The hotel is already a gateway to the coast and Margaret says she gets plenty of people on a trips. “Particularly if the weather’s nice - it’s always nice to hear what they’re up to.” A long-time Geelong resident, Margaret has 20 years in the business and enjoys managing both The Ponds and Norlane Hotel. “It keeps me busy,” she says. Her friendly and competent staff make the Ponds Hotel the ideal place to stop, freshen up, stock up or just relax. The Ponds Hotel is located 10km from Geelong CBD at 1154 Princes Highway, Waurn Ponds. The cafe opens at 8am and closes at 3.30pm each day.

Best meats for Newcomb

12388008-ACM20-18

Fantastic specials on delicious meats and seafood will be on offer when The Butcher Club celebrates its grand opening at Newcomb next Saturday. Business owner Brad Sloan can’t wait to greet crowds of customers during the opening of his 19th store at Bellarine Village. “It’s all about getting people to come down and be a part of what we do,” he says. “We want to expand in Geelong, as it’s a growing area, and be part of the community there.“ Brad and his two business partners will bring generations of experience in the meat industry with them to the new store. “My father was a butcher so I’ve grown up in butcher shops,” he says. “We’ve all had fathers and grandfathers in the industry - we’ve even got our families working in the business.” In three years The Butcher Club has grown from one shop in Altona Meadows to a thriving business across Melbourne and now Geelong. The business already has 18 stores operating after opening in Bachus Marsh and Corio in the past few weeks, due to popular demand. “The opening at Corio was a great success and it’s allowed us to open more stores across Geelong,“ Brad says. The Butcher Club specialises in delicious free-range meats, chemical-free poultry and market-fresh seafood. They are also experts in pre-prepared, value-added, take-home meals. The business sources high-quality meat from the lush pastures of south Gippsland and other local areas. “And with so much buying power we can pass

When children enrol at Geelong Baptist College they become part of a community that spans from prep to year 12 and beyond. The college is like one big “family”, according to primary principal Judy Sobey. “The secondary students are always mixing with primary students,” she says. “We do a lot of collaborative activities, whether it’s cooking or excursions. “When they’re going on excursions it’s like having an older brother or sister with them.” And teaching all year levels has other benefits for the college. “It can be quite daunting for adolescents starting in year seven,” Judy says. “But we have a very seamless transition when children go from primary to secondary school. “We get a lot of parents enrolling their kids because they want that seamless transition.” Geelong Baptist College focusses on fostering self-worth and ensuring each child can reach their full potential, whatever that may be. The college provides academic, creative, artistic and sporting opportunities for each of its 312 students. “Whilst we’re an independent school - we’re a smaller school,” Judy says. “So we know our students very well and we value the individuality of each student. “And our staff and chaplains are always there for the children.“ Many parents find the school’s consistent but compassionate discipline system reassuring, Judy says. “They know their child is going to be safe.” The college had a 25 per cent increase in primary students this year. “We’re on 34 acres, so we have plenty of room for more,” Judy says.

Geelong Baptist College offers a seamless transition from primary to secondary years.

“We’ve got three ovals and the children can go where ever they want.” The college is also undertaking a new building program to further improve its facilities. “We have an early learning centre due to start in 2019,” Judy says. She encourages parents from across the region to come to Lovely Banks have a look at the college. The college’s bus service goes to “all of the four corners“ of Geelong, the Golden Plains Shire and Point Cook, she adds.

FOCUS ON … EDUCATION WEEK

P-TECH’s learning pathways

With courses ranging from VCE and VCAL, certificates I to IV, diplomas and advanced diplomas and short courses, The Gordon can offer a qualification for everyone.

Now in its third year, Newcomb Secondary College's P-TECH (Pathways in Technology) program is well underway. P-TECH is a collaborative partnership between education and industry to provide students with pathways to nationally accredited qualifications alongside their regular inschool education. Supported by the Federal Government, Newcomb Secondary College is among the first of 10 Australian colleges offering P-TECH. VCE/VCAL students are currently studying at Certificate III in ICT, Business/Finance or

Health/Science at The Gordon with the support of mentors from the college’s industry partners. As part of their study, the students attend their workplace regularly to participate in reallife workplace projects. At the completion of their schooling students have a formal qualification, extensive work-placement experience and will have gained a number of much needed non-technical skills such as problem-solving, collaboration and self-management skills required for employment in the future.

Key to skills With campuses now in Werribee and Hoppers Crossing, as well as its Geelong and East Geelong campuses, The Gordon is offering more opportunities to more people than ever before. Awarded both Victorian and Australian Large Training Provider of the Year at the recent Victorian and Australian Training Awards, The Gordon plays an instrumental role in the transitioning economy of the Geelong region and surrounds. “We work tirelessly to make the student experience as valuable and as rewarding as we can,” Gordon CEO Lisa Line said. “In our commitment to meet industry’s needs, now and into the future, we make sure that our students graduate with the skills and experience they need to ensure their chosen career path can become a reality.” With courses ranging from VCE and VCAL, certificates I to IV, diplomas and advanced diplomas and short courses, The Gordon can offer a qualification for everyone. Whether it’s a practical course to enter industry or a traditional trade, or perhaps a pathway to univer-

sity, The Gordon has it covered. Delivering real skills, real experience and real outcomes are The Gordon’s main objectives. Guidance by industry-experienced staff delivers training and initiatives focused on employment, increasing educational attainment, industry demand, new materials, technology, and manufacturing processes and emerging industries. As well as being awarded both Victorian and Australian Large Training Provider of the Year, The Gordon celebrated its 130th birthday in 2017. The Gordon has trained countless students across a vast array of courses since 1887. Building technical expertise, vocational knowledge, and skills for new technologies and industries, the TAFE has been instrumental in supporting students develop vocations and career paths for generations. Visit the website for a full list of courses or head to The Gordon’s Open Day on Sunday 5 August.

FOCUS ON … VOLUNTEER WEEK

A big thanks By Christine Couzens, Member For Geelong As the Member for Geelong, I am very aware of the role volunteers play in our community. I congratulate and honour their work and thank them for everything they do. Volunteers provide a significant and valuable service to our community. Whether it’s in our sporting clubs, school councils, the Red Cross, working with vulnerable people or as a carer or in our hospitals, they are often there doing the important support work we have all come to expect.

Volunteers generally offer their time and expertise where they have an interest in contributing to benefit their local community or at a broader level for no financial or social gain. They offer specific skills and labour that supports their community. Volunteering is also renowned for skill development and can have positive benefits for individuals as well as for the community. There can also be opportunities to work towards employment. Volunteers do a variety of work and contribute many hours to our community, which I very much appreciate.

was quick and easy, courtesy of adaptive allwheel drive with electric limited-slip differential. Official combined urban / highway fuel consumption is 8.9 litres per 100 kilometres on regular 91 RON unleaded, which compares with 10.2 (town) and 7.6 (highway) respectively for the test vehicle. The big boot, 490 litres takes two big suitcases, plus the smaller luggage with room to spare. Storage in the passenger cabin runs to a deep centre-console bin and generous door pockets for bits and pieces. Comfort for the average height is good but could be challenging for a taller person. Leg room in the rear is adequate without being generous. Even with the presence of leather, there’s a feeling of the ordinary all round. Nothing stands out, it’s bland. The Commodore RS-V shows the way with automotive technology for less than $50,000. European rivals with the same specs would be priced well above. Pity about the sat nav.

For close on 40 years, the Holden Commodore, together with sibling Calais, were large sedans and station wagons capable of carting a family and its gear over long distances in comfort, while making good time. So now, how does the European-sourced, Australian-revised, replacement compare with the traditional Aussie-built icon? What better way to find out than by taking a family trip from the Gold Coast to Sydney and back? We were blessed with a Commodore RS-V V6 AWD Liftback for our big trip. Approaching the vehicle from all angles, Commodore offers a range of restrained decorative treatments to the sleek, yet substantial, European sports body kit with rear lip spoiler and 18-inch alloy wheels. Inside, it’s much the same with soft-touch surroundings, leather-wrapped sports steering wheel with paddles, alloy pedals, leather-appointed trim, heated sports front seats, ambient lighting and DAB+ digital radio. Holden, as an early adapter of in-car infotainment with its MyLink system. New Commodore has a 8-inch high-resolution colour touchscreen display. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto phone projection, plus full iPod integration, including Siri, have kept up with trends. Even more so now with colour head-up windscreen display and wireless smartphone charging via a centre console unit. However, the embedded satellite navigation system is lagging behind information on the upgrading of the Pacific Highway. It kept giving us directions to turn left or right onto now superseded roads. With the arrow representing the Commodore on the screen, ploughing on through paddocks and bushland. Not a beast in sight… Based on the German made Opel Insignia, the new Holden Commodore comes to the Australian market in two- and all-wheel drive with petrol, turbo-petrol or diesel power. Our test Commodore RS-V was powered by a 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine mated with a new ninespeed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. Auto emergency braking had the windscreen head-up display lighting up and beeping with a warning of another vehicle too close in front, while lane keeping assist gently corrected the steering on any sign of wandering. The 360-degree / surround-view cameras were a bonus when parking in tight spots, as was rear cross-traffic alert on reversing out from between obstacles. Finally, the seven-year unlimited kilometre warranty will outlast many a trip up and down the Australian east coast. The Australian Commodore and Calais package is down to Holden engineers covering more than 200,000 kilometres of testing the drivetrain and suspension on Australian roads and at the Lang Lang proving ground. Pushing the dash-mounted engine start/stop button unleashes 235 kW and 381 Nm with a note rising to a rorty crescendo. Performance off the mark was all-but instantaneous, while overtaking, even on narrow roads

Top four in sight as Bombers nosedive By Justin Flynn Geelong has a chance to cement a spot in the top four when it takes on Essendon tomorrow. The Cats are third on the ladder but only percentage separates them from the eighth placed Port Adelaide. All six sides below Geelong will start favourites in their respective games, so tomorrow’s clash is a must win. The competition is so even, that a loss could see Geelong slide out of the eight. But first things first. Essendon is in disarray after losing to the previously winless Carlton last week and has star backman Michael Hurley on the injury list. Further compounding the Dons’ woes was the axing of former Melbourne and Ocean Grove coach Mark Neeld as game performance coach during the week. Geelong will regain key forward Tom Hawkins from suspension. Hawkins had been in good form prior to his indiscretion, booting

six goals in two games. However, Esava Ratugolea, in just his seventh game, responded to coach Chris Scott’s call for him to be the No.1 target by showing genuine ability by taking three contested marks. “We have been looking for a second target down there for a long time if you don’t include (Dan) Menzel in that category,” Scott said post-match. “It was not him playing second fiddle today with Hawkins (out) today, it was a requirement for the team he stood up. Some of those big contested marks, he’s a formidable proposition for the opposition.” Last Sunday, Geelong put away a dogged Collingwood in a low-scoring and, at times, scrappy affair. Gary Ablett returned from injury and was straight into his possession-collecting best with 32 touches, including 10 in the final term. Sam Menegola has flown under the radar in Geelong’s star-studded midfield. Menegola had 24 touches and took 10 marks against the Pies.

In fact Geelong’s midfield had plenty of the footy. Ablett (32 disposals), Patrick Dangerfield (26), Mitch Duncan (25), Joel Selwood (25), Menegola (24) and Tim Kelly (22) had more than 150 possessions between them. Harry Taylor made a successful return in defence for Geelong after missing six games with plantar fasciitis. Taylor was allowed to ease his way back into the swing of things thanks to Tom Stewart, who collected 28 disposals and clunked 10 marks. Stewart, his 28th game, patrolled the defence like a veteran and has been a shining for the Cats this season. Tomorrow’s game, which is part of Kevin Sheedy’s Country Festival brainchild, starts at 4.35pm at the MCG. Expect the Bombers to come out firing after a tumultuous week, but the Cats are too well drilled. Geelong by eight goals after an even first half.

Battle of form in showdown at Elcho Park By Josip Zilic

GO FORWARD: Andreas Miltiadou drives the Warriors forward. on, forcing him to miss the match against Werribee. However, in good news skipper Michael Anderson returned from injury to put in an impressive 25 minutes off the bench to pressure and create opportunities, which will be much needed this weekend.

ON THE BITE Chris Pitman Anglers who found opportunities to wet a line amid last week’s rough weather found excellent numbers of fish. Corio Bay fished well for pinkie snapper to 3kg along with the odd flathead from the rock wall at St Helen’s boat ramp. Casting plastics from boats along the waterfront was a sure bet for pinkies and Australian salmon to 1kg. Limeburner’s Point boat ramp was a garfish hot spot, with small pieces of pippie or prawn under a float working a treat. The Curlewis Bank produced King George whiting to almost 40cm. Squid were taken in the area but were hard to tempt with the wild weather. Notably, some nice garfish were taken from the new jetty at Clifton Springs’ boat ramp. Land-based anglers caught King George whiting, pinkies and salmon at Portarlington’s harbour. Pippies caught the whiting, while bluebait worked on the salmon and pinkies. Queenscliff Pier fished well for squid on size 3.5 jigs fished when the water clarity was reasonable. The weather kept offshore angling quiet, although bluefin tuna to 20kg were still caught off Port Fairy and Portland, along with a few barrels out from the latter. Freshwater anglers caught big redfin over 40cm and rainbow trout of more than 1kg at Wurdiboluc Reservoir. Long cast with lures like Pegron Tiger minnows worked best. Stony Creek Reservoir produced brown trout averaging more than 1kg, and in good numbers too. Casting Tassie Devils in pink #55 was effecting, with a few large redfin also caught. Lake Purrumbete started to stir. Anglers trolling the east bank caught brown and rainbow trout. Further afield, Peri Stavropoulos took a run up to the Rubicon River where he had no trouble in landing numerous brook trout on hard-body lures. Hopefully, improved weather next week should allow fishing for bluefin tuna down the coast, while the whiting off St Leonards and the trevally in Queenscliff harbour should kick into gear.

Also, Darius Madison found scoring rhythm with the under-20s and is expected to feature in first team action this weekend. North Geelong’s under-20s continued its good form with a convincing 5-1 win over Moreland City on the back of goals to Jak Banks, Anthony Leban, George Ellis and Darius Madison.

After three losses in a row North Geelong Warriors needs to come together and improve its execution of chances while putting in a solid grind against visiting Werribee City this Saturday at Elcho Park in round 12 of NPL 2 action. Werribee will come to North Geelong with a turn in form, having won three of its last four matches, most recently a 3-2 victory away against the highly polished Melbourne City team. Werribee has also been able to find the back of the net in the past four games, something the Warriors have been finding difficult in recent weeks. Werribee’s recent form has come about from various goal scorers but one to note is Hiro Nagatomi. With four goals in recent weeks he’s making scoring a habit. North Geelong, with an improved performance last weekend, was not outplayed by any means but confidence is lacking and evident in executing ball movement with authority and keeping shape especially when under pressure. Against Moreland last weekend two of the three goals were gifted to City courtesy of poor distribution, giving a top-of-the-table opponent gilt-edged chances, which did enough to force North into chasing the game. To add to the Warriors’ woes, influential midfielder Michael Boyar was red-carded late
