A “frightening” helicopter crash at Lethbridge yesterday ended in a “very lucky” escape for two men now recovering in hospital. Emergency services rushed to the crash site about 10am before dousing the smashed helicopter in foam to prevent it catching on fire. Continued page 2

Victims stumble from crash From page 1 Two men stumbled free of the wreckage, despite the impact destroying the tail shaft of the Robinson R44 and smashing its windows. Lethbridge Airport operator Gary Baum drove to the crash after receiving an SES call and saw the two men, who he estimated were in their 30s or 40s. “I wouldn’t like to imagine being in there. I can think of nothing more frightening,” he said. “It was a very lucky escape when you look into the damage.” One man was lying in the grass with back injuries while the other had a cut to the head, Mr Baum said. An ambulance helicopter flew the man with lower back pain to Royal Melbourne Hospital in a stable condition, according to Ambulance Victoria. Paramedics took the other man to Ballarat hospital in a stable condition. The back of the helicopter broke up spreading debris over a 50m radius, and the crash site smelt strongly of fuel due to a leak, Mr Baum said. Civil Aviation Safety Authority had begun investigating the crash which occurred on one

of the airport’s two runways, 31km north-west of Geelong. “I don’t know what’s happened - whether it’s pilot error or a mechanical fault,” Mr Baum said. But the crash would have occurred during landing, he said. “The helicopter would have been quite close to the ground when this happened. “It still had a fair bit of forward momentum based on what I could see. “It’s landed heavily on the bottom of the aircraft and then rolled to one side before skidding across the ground.” The airport closed the runway for investigators to examine the crash site and to clean debris, Mr Baum said. He said the owner of the helicopter had kept the four-seat aircraft “well-maintained”. “They’re quite an expensive little item but this one will never fly again looking at it. It’s always a sad thing but luckily no one died.” Mr Baum said he had not met the crash survivors before and declined to give the helicopter owner’s name “I can’t give you his full name - I only know him as ‘Rob’,” he said.

Work on Drysdale's bypass will proceed to schedule despite the discovery of an aboriginal artefact, Victorian Roads Minister Luke Donnellan said yesterday. “Major construction will start in September. It’s business as usual - there are absolutely no delays and the project is on budget,” he confirmed. “We’ve made it clear the archaeological excavation would take place and it was factored into this project as is the case with every major road project.” Mr Donnellan reassured nearby residents the planned bypass was on schedule after a specialist team found an aboriginal hammer stone, possibly 5000 years old. But he declined to say whether any finds of greater significance during the excavation could impact the start date or project costs. “People have talked about this project for more than 40 years and we’re getting on and delivering it,” he said. A specialist team was working with the local Aboriginal community to uncover and document any significant items to ensure construction began in September, Mr Donnellan said. The team has commenced recovery work at the top of the hill on Andersons Rd, Drysdale. Work will ramp up over coming weeks with the team to bring larger mechanical sieves and excavators onto the site. The team was working under the supervision of Major Road Projects Authority and Ballarat’s Wathaurung Aboriginal Corporation. All discovered artefacts would remain in the custody of a heritage advisor until the corporation determines their use, Mr Donnellan said. The corporation would either keep the artefact, give it to a museum to display or return it “to country” upon completion of the bypass, he said.

IN BRIEF Teacher killed A Bellarine Secondary College teacher has died in a house fire at Ocean Grove, leaving a teenage son who lived with her distraught. Arson Squad detectives who inspected the site this week believe the fire that killed Dawn Webster on Monday night was not suspicious.

Pharmacy ‘smashed’ A man refused medication has returned at night to “smash” an Ocean Grove pharmacy’s doors, according to police. Investigators released images of the suspect this week with an appeal for information about the 29 May incident at the Kingston Downs Dve premises.

Nurses lose Unionised council nurses have lost their campaign for more annual leave after 91 per cent of 1317 City Hall staff voted in support of a proposed new enterprise agreement, according to City Hall. The three-year deal would give staff annual pay increases of 2.1 to 2.3 per cent but City Hall said it omitted the Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation’s demand for five week’s leave.

Cash found An unidentified good Samaritan has handed in a lost purse containing a “large sum of money”, Bellarine Police Station has revealed. Police said the owner could retrieve the purse and its contents if they were able to provide certain identifying information, “obviously”.

Power call’s ‘boost’ for factory workers By Luke Voogt Geelong manufacturers have welcomed recommendations for new power plants and phasing out solar schemes amid fears the city could lose 2500 jobs. ACCC released a national energy blueprint this week following Indy reports last November that rising power costs threatened a quarter of Geelong manufacture jobs. The blueprint’s recommendations would help protect local businesses from price hikes, according to Geelong Manufacturing Council (GMC). “GMC members have expressed their concern about the impacts of electricity costs, energy regulation and pricing transparency on business,” GMC’s Emmy McKenzie said. “Rising energy prices have a direct effect on the competitiveness of our members.” The recommendations would allow Geelong manufacturers to grow and remain competitive in future, Ms McKenzie said. The operator of Geelong’s oil refinery also welcomed the blueprint. Viva Energy refining manager Thys Heyns supported “any plans” to ensure pricing remained competitive.

“Energy prices have been one of the few natural advantages we have historically had at the refinery against international competition,” he said. “As a major user of electricity in Victoria, the supply and pricing of electricity is critical to our business, so we would welcome any developments that will improve electricity affordability.” ACCC released 56 final recommendations on Wednesday following its inquiry into the energy market commencing in March 2017. “The national electricity market is largely broken and needs to be reset,” the commission’s chair Rod Sims said. Commercial and industrial customers’ electricity costs would decrease by 26 per cent under the recommendations, ACCC estimated. Electricity prices now threatened heavy users, like mining and manufacturing companies, where previously they had been a relative advantage, Mr Sims said. ACCC estimated its recommendations to better regulate retailers would save households between 20 and 25 per cent on their electricity bill, or around $290-$415 per year. “Some of the most vulnerable in our com-

munity are forced to struggle through freezing winters and scorching summers,” Mr Sims said. Australia’s 2.2 million small to medium businesses could save an average of 24 per cent under the recommendations, Mr Sims said. Among ACCC’s recommendations were investment in generation for “new players” and limiting companies with 20 per cent or higher market share from acquiring more generation capacity. The commission also recommended State Governments fund solar feed-in-tariffs and phasing out Australia’s small scale renewable energy scheme, saving non-solar consumers $20-$90 per year. Energy price rises were a “life or death matter” for a quarter of manufacturers nationwide according to Australian Industry Group’s policy advisor Tennant Reed. Mr Reed told the Indy last November the figure would likely apply for Geelong’s 10,207-strong manufacturing workforce.

Women promoted Women are set to land more senior positions at City Hall after council this week released a draft “framework” for gender equity. The plan noted the “small numbers of women in leadership and management positions” at City Hall while also providing a guide for “community-based activities and responses”, council said.

Rain boost Fifty-six millimetres of rain has lifted water storage levels in the Geelong-region catchment, according to official measurements. Barwon Water reported that the rain over the seven days to Wednesday had left the storages 1.2 billion litres higher, with the overall level now at 51.6 per cent of capacity.

Land swapped A developer-council land swap will save an “ecologically significant” 13.6-hectare site at the expense of a 3.9Ha reserve in Indented Head, according to City Hall. The developer would also give council $110,000 to achieve parity in the exchange of the similarly valued sites, City Hall said.

West set for big upgrades host for the Geelong Football League, the most successful football league in Victoria outside of the AFL.” Herne Hill’s master plan would bring the reserve and its facilities “into line with modern standards”, council said. The proposed upgrades included refurbishment of the reserve’s pavilion with six “genderneutral change facilities” to help cater for female players. Council’s allocated $500,000 was for stage one’s removal of decrepit buildings, courtside facilities and a cricket net storage. “However, at this stage council has not committed further funds to the implementation of the master plan,” City Hall said. Both higher levels of government and the reserve’s tenant clubs would have to help find the rest of the funding. Council said St Joseph’s Football and Netball and St Peter’s Cricket clubs had a combined total of 937 active members but the reserve was “also a valued open space for the broader community”. “If implemented, this master plan would address functional issues and encourage community use of the reserve,” said acting mayor Peter Murrihy. “The priorities identified during the plan’s development were to improve drainage and existing buildings, to provide safe parking and pedestrian movement, and to improve the quality of public open space on offer.” Both plans are available for public comment on council’s website.

GLOBAL VIEW: Doctor Anastasia Globa and students from Colombia and Deakin University photograph Eastern Beach with a 360 degree camera to transform it in virtual reality. 182807 (Rebecca Hosking)

'Virtual Columbia' on beach Colombian and Deakin University students will transform Eastern Beach in virtual reality through a “cutting-edge“ project this month. The project combined virtual reality with real images, sounds and texture in a new way to create a “feeling of place”, team leader Beau Beza said. The students’ work could lead to a virtual reality platform where architects and developers immerse themselves in own their project designs, he said. “Static drawings can only show you so much.” The students took photos over the past fortnight with a 360-degree camera to create a virtual “Colombian cultural experience” at Eastern Beach, Dr Beza said. The project would help determine the real-

ism required for a virtual reality platform for planning approvals and large-scale infrastructure projects. “What tends to happen if an architect is designing a space is they create a scene that looks as real as possible but there’s still a large disconnect between the space and the community judging it,“ Dr Beza said The students’ work could lead to an app allowing people to virtually experience a proposed development at different times of the day, he hoped. “It could be as simple as going to the planning authority website, downloading an app with the virtual environment, going out onsite, standing in the space and interacting with it, potentially from something as simple as a smartphone.”


Geelong’s west is set for millions of dollars in new sports facilities after councillors this week released draft master plans to upgrade two reserves. But council warned it would have to find more money to complete the upgrades of West Oval and Herne Hill Reserve, which have insufficient existing budget allocations of $100,000 and $500,000. West Oval is set for the biggest upgrade after a joint G21 and AFL Barwon strategy identified it as a preferred host of regional finals and other events such as TAC Cup and AFLW matches. The oval’s heritage-listed Flowers Family Stand would be “retained and protected” but receive “internal improvements”, council said. New facilities would include a two-storey club and community building, a new entrance from Weddel Rd and enhanced spectator seatings. City Hall would need funding from both higher levels of government as well as sports clubs to complete the “significant” upgrade, council said. More than 1050 club members use the oval, including members of Geelong West Giants footballers and netballers and the suburb’s cricket team. “This plan would bring the venue’s change facilities up to standard for women’s sport, which is important given the growing female participation rates at the tenant clubs and across the region,” councillor Anthony Aitken said. “It also attempts to align with the strategic direction of AFL Barwon by providing facilities that position West Oval as the future finals

Riders’ lanes ‘concession’ By Luke Voogt Cyclists are prepared to back the retention of car parks controversially earmarked for bike lanes at Belmont, according to a cycling advocate. Former Bike Safe president Barton van Laar forecast the concession ahead of council presenting four city bike network options to Belmont traders later this month. “It’s not ideal,” he said. “Sometimes you have to reach a compro-

mise to make a decision.” Separated bike paths, at the expense of car parks, were cyclists’ preferred choice, Mr van Laar said. But traders would benefit from options under which cars and bikes shared High St between Mount Pleasant and Roslyn Rds, he said. “It’ll bring more business for the shopping centre. When the traders feel more comfortable in the future then you can (introduce separated bike paths).” Shared roads with reduced speeds and speed

humps would increase business, with more cyclist shoppers and fewer motorists using High St as a “through way”, Mr van Laar said. About 60 per cent of High St motorists drove straight through rather than stopping, he said. Council declined to release the four design options before presenting them to High St stakeholders on 30 July. But in March council published four options, one of which retained on-street parking and shared the road between cars and bikes. The other three proposed separated bike

lanes and removal of parking on one or both sides. Most Belmont traders and residents would reject options that involved losing parking, said The Joker Shoppe’s Vince Albanese. “We’ve spoken to almost everyone,” he said. “Where would an elderly person go?” Deputy mayor Peter Murrihy said council had listened to community feedback, including traders’ concerns, when devising the design options, City Hall will run run a public survey after presenting the plans to the public.

Jacinta’s win in care debut Leopold’s Jacinta Robbins has won an award as Geelong and Surf Coast’s best day care educator in her first year as a provider. Not-for-profit Family Day Care Australia awarded Jacinta the title for her “valuable and adaptable service”. “My aim’s to create an environment where parents and children feel like they’re a part of my own family,” she said. The award was particularly impressive considering Jacinta was in her first year of day care, said City Hall’s Linda Quinn. “We are proud to offer the family day care service and even more proud when one of our educators is recognised for their amazing efforts,” she said. Family Day Care Australia is the peak industry body for childhood educators running small in-home day care groups. Under the organisation’s guidelines educators work with groups of no more than four children under school age at a time.

DOUBLE TAKE Ba-gurrk! No, it’s not the sound of a chook on the loose. The poultry-like expression actually begins the title of City Hall’s proposed plan to achieve gender equality. Council released the surprisingly titled Ba-gurrk Gender Equality Framework this week for public feedback. Or maybe that should be chickenfeedback. According to council, the plan with the unlikely name aims to “ensure all policies, plans, services and programs developed by the City are committed to gender equity principles to achieve a fair and inclusive community”. Fair enough, but why ‘Ba-gurrk’? Well, it’s a local Aboriginal word, council explained. “Ba-gurrk is Wadawurrung for woman, and was incorporated in the framework title to pay homage to Wadawurrung traditional owners,” council said. Ahh, now it becomes clear. Double Take commends council’s symbolism and looks forward to the delivery of equality for all the ba-gurrks at City Hall!

SPORTING PROWESS: Armstrong United Football Club president Michael Dower with Geelong Cats players Mark Blicavs and Danielle Orr and Melbourne Vixens' Tegan Philip and Chloe Watson.

Legend launches Armstrong By Luke Voogt Armstrong United Football Club president Michael Parker has put in time, sweat and money to make sure his two girls can play soccer. “I was keen to get a club up and running for my kids,” the Club Legend nominee said. Michael helped found Geelong's newest soccer club, kicking off seven Armstrong Creek teams this year. The long-time player lives and breathes the beautiful game at Armstrong United, helping with everything from purchasing equipment to painting lines. “There are a lot of things you probably don’t realise that happen behind the scenes,” he said. “There are always things to do, even just making sure the electricity is turned on at the oval.”

The central defender was even willing to take a pounding as fill-in goalie, like during last weekend’s 0-5 loss. “I’d much rather not but that’s all right,” he laughed. Michael looks out for his players off the pitch too. “My experience as a youth and health worker has allowed me to help some of our players who might be struggling,” he said. Michael will vie for $5000 each for himself and Armstrong United in Viva Energy’s 2018 Club Legend Award, which has a total prize pool of $50,000 for local clubs and their volunteers. He hoped to use any prizemoney for portable change rooms or storage. Nominations for the awards are open at until 3 August.

While on the subject of Aboriginal terminology, a Geelong academic might have unwittingly inspired a strategy to disrupt the season of Richmond before its likely fateful clash with the Cats in AFL round 20 next month. Deakin University’s Associate Professor Helen Gardner this week unveiled a series of forgotten Aboriginal names for places in Melbourne, including the home of none other than the rampant Tigers. Apparently the pre-colonial Wurundjeri-willam locals used the word Quo-yung when referring to the area now known as home to the raging premiership favourites. And, the professor further explained, Quo-ung meant ‘dead trees’. So, in the spirit of great reconciliation-inspired re-namings, such as Gariwerd for the Grampians Ranges and Uluru for Ayres Rock, Cats chief Brian Cook should get on the blower right now to demand similar recognition of the Wurundjeri-willam. Because by the time round 20 comes around, everyone will want to see the Geelong Cats take on the Quo-Yung Dead Trees! Bring it on!

BUSTED: "Hmm, now let's see. That's riding without a helmet and impersonating a police officer, at least." A shopper on a Highway Patrol bike during the latest Coffee With a Cup event. Meanwhile, Cookie's Cats players have acquired a little extra shrubbery of their own - and it sounds a little more comfy than Richmond’s dead trees. The new Cats Players’ Garden, launching today, will provide Geelong’s best-kept felines with a “multipurpose green retreat, where the team can kick back, relax with their families over a meal, throw a few hoops or meet with specialist coaches”. Double Take once owned a cat but when it used the garden it certainly wasn’t to “kick back” or “throw a few hoops”. So hopefully the new players' garden also includes men’s and ba-gurrk’s litter boxes! Police’s charm offensive stepped up a gear, or possibly six, in Geelong over the past week. In the latest leg of Coffee With A Cop, the local constabulary visited Westfield Geelong with a special addition: a Highway Patrol motorcycle on display. The shoppers enjoyed a cuppa with the officers on duty but, as police conceded, the flashy big bike was probably “the main attraction”. “Members of the public of all ages wanted to speak with the police and have their photo taken with the motorcycle,” police posted on Facebook this week with happy snaps from the day. Coffee With A Cop’s next Geelong stop is at Market Square Shopping Centre on Monday no word on whether the organisers will go one better with a pursuit car!

City flies high in Malaysia Mayor, abalone at airline event By Luke Voogt Avalon Airport’s first international passenger flight will take off on 5 December, AirAsia announced in Kuala Lumpur on Tuesday. Geelong tourism representatives took a local chef, wine and abalone to promote the regiona t the the launch of the “Melbourne Avalon Airport” service. AirAsia marketed the service as a “Melbourne” flight to reach a greater market internationally, explained Tourism Greater Geelong and the Bellarine’s Tracy Carter. “But they are putting a lot of work into its connection with Geelong, the Bellarine and the Great Ocean Road,” she said. “We’ve been pleasantly surprised with how proactive they’ve been with us in terms of promoting the airport as a gateway to Geelong and the Bellarine.” Jetstar had always marketed flights to Avalon as “Melbourne” services and AirAsia struck a good “balance” between promoting Victoria’s capital and Geelong, Ms Carter said. The airport’s 9000 square metre international terminal would ready for the inaugural landing of AirAsia X Flight D7218, chief executive officer (CEO) Justin Giddings said. “The new international terminal construction is well underway.” The terminal would house state-of-the-art facilities with the latest innovations in customs, and duty free shopping, restaurants and cafes, Mr Giddings said. “We look forward to offering Victorians a truly efficient and comfortable international airport experience.“ The twice-daily return flights, departing

The service would mark a new era as the Australia’s first dedicated low-cost international airport officially opened, AirAsia X CEO Benyamin Ismail said. “This is a game changer for consumers, for tourism and for the industry,” he said at the official launch in Kuala Lumpur. “Just in time for the peak summer holiday period and before Christmas, affordable and

hassle-free international travel from Avalon Airport in Victoria will become a reality.“ The airline had ramped up its presence in Victoria through regional and state tourism marketing partnerships, “We’re also making tweaks to our inflight and ground service offerings, introducing Australian cabin crew and revamping our onboard menu to include locally sourced and produced Victorian items.” An A330-300 plane will to carry up to 377 passengers for the Avalon service, including 12

premium flatbeds in “a child-free quiet zone”, the airline announced. AirAsia launched the service with a sale including fares starting at $99 from Avalon to Kuala Lumpur. Mayor Bruce Harwood was honoured to promote the best Geelong had to offer “to plenty of international media” at the launch, he said. “We’re expecting a spike in visitor numbers from Southeast Asia over summer.”

School target of city growth

Newtown Instagram gran Angela Dower is putting a modern twist on the ancient art of embroidery with her image-editing and research talents. “I’m doing something completely and utterly different,” the lifelong embroider said. The self-confessed Google and Photoshop savant will display her tapestried 21st Century take on 500-year-old paintings this month to raise money for children in need. Amongst Angela’s transformations is an embroidery based on a painting of 16th Century Englishwomen Frances Bell. “Her dress is just remarkable but the original lady is extremely ugly,” she said. “I gave her a much better face - which is better for hanging her on the wall.” Fascinated with renaissance fashion, Angela remodels queens, countesses and merchant’s daughters from the era. “I’ll go through paintings and take an eye here, a nose or mouth there,” she said. Angela has painted and sewed almost her whole life, winning her first competition at age 5. She began a class when she moved to Geelong about 20 years ago. “I love it - you just forget your problems,” she said. “Everyone in the class is just so passionate.” Angela and her students will fill Shearers Arms Gallery with portraits, blankets, cushions and more from 28 July to 5 August. But Angela kept her embroidery secrets all sewn up when she spoke to the Indy. “You’ll have to come and look won’t you,” she said. Proceeds from the $2 entry and weekend afternoon teas for the Geelong Evening VIEW Club event will go to The Smith Family to help disadvantaged children.

A new primary school is among community infrastructure earmarked to help central Geelong accommodate "at least” 10,000 residents within 10 years, City Hall has revealed. A health centre and numerous other community facilities will also be on the wish-list of council’s social infrastructure plan for the city. Councillors will begin drawing up the plan after this week endorsing a final report on the central city’s infrastructure needs. The report called for the primary school along with other facilities including a community health centre, supported accommodation and various indoor and outdoor spaces. “The importance of planning for infrastructure that caters to families who want to live centrally for convenience and central amenities was also noted,” council said. “Other strategic priorities when delivering community infrastructure for central Geelong are to facilitate innovative and diverse arts and cultural development, support smart cities infrastructure, develop creative spaces, facilitate social inclusion and supported accommodation and re-use existing spaces where possible.” State Government would be the lead agency for the primary school and community health centre, council said. City Hall and other not-for-profit organisations would take the lead on the other required infrastructure. State Government and council are pushing for population growth in central Geelong as part of plans to rejuvenate the area. The 2016 Census indicated a population of 1600 in the city but several apartment complexes and other residential accommodation have since opened. Community surveys have commonly rated the rejuvenation of the city centre as the top priority for Geelong.

The most effective solution to minimise future flooding is the installation of an additional stormwater drain along Gheringhap Street from below Johnstone Park to Corio Bay. You are invited to attend an open house on the project to see the design plans for the underground drain pipe, hear about the construction process and assist in identifying the building access and people movement considerations for the traffic management planning.

Strike stalls half of city’s bus services By Luke Voogt Bus drivers have gone on strike causing disruptions to “half” of Geelong’s services on 10 routes to northern suburbs and other destinations. The drivers stopped work to demand a four per cent pay rise and an increase of one per cent in superannuation. “We don’t take industrial action lightly and we certainly apologise to the public for this,” said John Berger, Victorian Transport Workers Union secretary. “But we haven’t taken strike action in 20 years.” The strike comes after the union rejected bus company CDC’s proposed 2.5 per cent yearly pay rise, above Australia’s inflation rate of 1.9 per cent. “It’s not just isolated to CDC,” Mr Berger said. “It’s across the bus industry in Victoria.” Bus drivers earned between $26 and $28 per hour on average, according to Mr Berger, equating to about $53,000 per year. They had received yearly three per cent pay rises for the last decade meaning CDC was offering a lower-than-usual raise, Mr Berger explained. Public Transport Victoria (PTV) chief executive officer (CEO) Jeroen Weimar apologised for the “disappointing” strike which he said disrupted half of Geelong’s buses. The strike caused “real inconvenience” to passengers during school and university holidays, he said. COMMUTER CONFUSION: Locals check bus times during a drivers' strike on Tuesday.

COMMUTER CONFUSION: Locals check bus times during a drivers' strike on Tuesday. “I strongly encourage CDC Victoria and the (union) to continue negotiations, and exhaust all avenues to resolve this dispute.” CDC CEO Nicholas Yap described his company’s latest offer as fair. “Our drivers do a very important job and we feel this wage offer demonstrates our support for them,” he said. Some commuters in Moorabool Street complained about the inconvenience or described the pay demands as excessive. Others on social media slammed “aggressive“ bus drivers “bullying” other motorists, or warned the strike would affect the elderly or people with a disability.

But Norlane pensioner Lorraine Miller had more sympathy for local bus drivers. “I thought it was a little bit late,” the 70-year-old said, after discovering the strike affected her regular route 22 bus. “I think (bus drivers) are entitled to (a raise) because of the abuse they get from passengers,” she said. “They do a great job.” Catching an alternative bus would force her to cross Princess Highway to get home, she said. “Which at my age I get nervous about. “But I’ve travelled by bus since 1996 and this is the first time I remember there being a strike. So I’m not going to whinge about it.”

V/Line 'later' after tragedy V/Line has blamed a fatal incident in June for its failure to meet a reliability target of running 96 per cent of services for the month. A train hit a person at Lara on 4 June, causing the cancellation of five trains and the closure of the line for more than three hours. The trespassing incident was the “main reason” V/Line fell short of its target, according to chief executive officer James Pinder. The incident also had flow-on effects, delaying services into the evening, he said. Both reliability and punctuality last month were down on June 2017, with 87.7 per cent of trains running on time and V/Line cancelling five per cent of services. Last June 89.6 per cent of trains ran on time and V/Line cancelled less than one per cent of services. Train faults and trains stopping at stations also contributed to delays in June. Temporary speed restrictions, as V/Line completed works on the Warrnambool line, also had flow-on affects to Geelong services, Mr Pinder said. He said V/Line would lift these restrictions when safe to do so. The ongoing upkeep of the line was important for V/Line to continue offering safe and reliable services to the growing number of passengers, Mr Pinder said. “We had more than 1.5 million passenger trips on the V/Line train network last month and the Geelong line continues to be the busiest.” V/Line completed $8.4 million in maintenance works on the Geelong and Warrnambool lines in June. “More than 240 staff and contractors worked around the clock to complete maintenance on our track, signalling, stations and structures,” Mr Pinder said. “These works help ensure the ongoing upkeep of the line and help reduce the likelihood of unplanned disruptions.” Anyone in distress can phone Lifeline 24/7 on 13 11 14 or visit

Geelong’s new Women’s and Children’s Hospital The State Government has funded Barwon Health to identify options to transform the former Geelong Private Hospital into a dedicated facility to treat Women and Children. The new hospital will deliver additional maternity and paediatric services, more inpatient beds, delivery rooms, operating theatres and clinics for our growing community. This facility will give women and children the full suite of services closer to home. This follows the closure of Geelong Private due to an overcrowded private health market.

Welcome Back! the former Baxter House in Ryrie St will return to Barwon Health as a Women’s and Children’s Hospital

Barwon Health will take on many of the ancillary staff from Geelong Private, providing them with job security.

Whale death despite help DESIGNING FUTURES: Deakin architecture student Ben McKenzie in India.

Students 'design the future' Aspiring Geelong architects will this month present designs for future early learning centres in India after touring the country in January.

Deakin University student Ben McKenzie joined 15 others on the trip, which inspired him to “think differently“. “The journey was a life-changing experience for me, showing me a whole new world of architecture and cultural diversity,” the waterfront campus student said. “I was encouraged to explore unique architectural styles and was exposed to different methodology and ways of thinking through and working with colleagues from cultures other than my own.” The students worked with local architects and mechanics to create seven designs for maternal care and early learning centres

in the Indian city of Udupi. Senior lecturer Susan Ang led the trip as part of Deakin’s commitment to architectural expression and sustainable building in under-privileged communities. The students also held a workshop with local kids to gain exposure to their fundamental needs, ideals, characteristics and behaviours, Ms Ang said. “Immersing themselves through craft, games and interactive programs allowed our Deakin architecture students to understand how the local children operate and what they value.” Another cohort of students will travel to a different Indian city later this year through the lntercultural Dialogue through Design program (iDiDe).

A whale washed up dead at Breamlea after well-meaning locals twice pushed the mammal back out to sea, authorities confirmed on Wednesday. On Saturday the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) responded to reports of a whale washing ashore at Bancoora Beach. But when wildlife officers arrived on site, they found members of the public had rolled the whale back out to sea twice. Officers found the previously missing dwarf sperm whale dead at Breamlea, DELWP confirmed on Wednesday. DELWP incident controller Barry James warned the public against approaching beached whales or pushing them back out to sea. “Live beached whales and dolphins are in a distressed state,” he said. “Often, they have come ashore as their health is compromised in some way, and they have got into difficulty.“ Mr James instead urged the public to phone wildlife officers and leave the rescue to them. “Successful refloating requires a veterinary assessment, followed by period of stabilisation by trained responders,” he said. “We recommend they keep other people and dogs away, and immediately contact the Whale and Dolphin Emergency Hotline on 1300 136 017. “By being too close to a beached whale or dolphin, members of the public risk being hit by a tail, or being rolled on in the surf.” On Saturday wildlife officers responded to

BEACHED: A dead dwarf sperm whale at Bremlea. reports of a separate whale washing ashore at Thirteenth Beach, according to DWELP. Wildlife officers found the dwarf pilot whale dead. “DELWP has collected samples and measurements, and these will be provided to the Melbourne Museum for identification and research purposes,” Mr James said. The carcass is located in an area of the foreshore that is dangerous to access due to rocks and rising water, Mr James said. “We are asking the public to stay away from the carcass, as whale remains are protected by law and must not be interfered with.” DELWP will undertake a necropsy of the 3.4 metre carcass to identify the cause of death. “DELWP is working with the Barwon Coast Committee to arrange the removal of the carcass, when tide conditions make it safe to do so,” Mr James said. “There are also health risks associated with whale decomposition, including the possibility of pathogens from whale carcasses being harmful to humans.”

LETTERS The sign-less majority In last week’s Geelong Indy Villawood Properties executive director Rory Costelloe informed us that the giant Villawood sign on the Geelong ring road gave voice to “community concerns, issues and interest”. He then stated that the recent “#withrefugees” sign was installed with the “full support of Diversitat and Geelong-based refugees” but made no mention of community involvement. If Mr Costelloe truly wants to reflect community feelings about refugees perhaps he could consider displaying signs saying, ‘#NoMoreBoats’ or ‘#GovernmentAuthorisedRefugeesOnly’ or ‘#OnlyRefugeesWhoCanAssimilate’ or ‘#NoOpenBorders’. I suspect he would not agree with these messages but I could be wrong. Peter Rees Bell Park

Knockers should nurture Geelong Ratepayers’ President Andrew Senia’s claim that Mayor Bruce Harwood’s latest visit to Kuala Lumpur was ’’a total waste of ratepayers money with no short or long-term benefits” (Geelong Indy, 6 July) didn’t stack up. First, do the calculus. Deputy Mayor Peter Murrihy was to be applauded for leading the decision by City of Greater Geelong’s council for the mayoral return to Kula Lumpur for the AirAsia X launch. Central to Avalon Airport’s pending international status is that the city and region provide ongoing, well-informed representation and interface. While it’s a positive for the local economy that Geelong is now headquarters for the TAC, NDIA and WorkSafe, these agencies, despite providing important services, are funded via taxation and other community charges. They don’t generate new money or value-adding. Contrary to Mr Senia’s out-of-hand rejection, an up-and-about Avalon Airport via inbound tourism and, in time, as an export hub for regional fresh food into Asian markets, is potentially the biggest game in town and a regional game-changer. As such, all things AirAsia X and Avalon Airport require nurturing, not knocking. Richard Worland Manifold Heights

Find them a home If Member for Western Victoria Simon Ramsay is so au fait with local homelessness (Letters, 6 July) why was he unaware of the man in the hat and his lady who had been bedding down for six months on a ledge in front of a Moorabool St shop after spending every day in the mall?

Ramsay he said it was the first time he had seen them. Everyone who has entered the CBD recently is aware of these folks. Mr Ramsay’s office is a street way from their makeshift home yet he was unaware of their plight. I found out on Monday night that they had vacated the mall out of fear of prosecution when PSOs began patrolling the mall. To my knowledge, none of the many charities in Geelong have attempted to retrieve these people from their homelessness. State Government’s Department of Human Services (DHS) is supposedly mandated to provide housing for our people in need. I am one of their tenants. It is about time our elected members ordered DHS to start accommodating these people. Our elected members, both state and federal, are contractually obliged, via our country’s constitution, to provide “peace, order and good government”, which starts by looking after our people who are in the sort of need evidenced by mass homelessness.

Bus stops divine The Moorabool St bus stops are a vital service in the lives of the elderly in the community of this city. People who have cars don’t seem to have the imagination to realise this. But they too will get too sick or too elderly to drive. Will they like isolation when they can’t take public transport as easily as possible? The new trees are also a godsend for our city because they clean the air of much pollution, made primarily by automobile traffic, by the way. It seems few can reason from A to B to C to

Have a heart for pensioners Federal Labor Member for Corio Richard Marles should know about the money my partner and I lose as a pensioner couple. It’s almost $300 a week, nearly $600 a fortnight. This applies to many aged Australians. That money could mean more food and a better ability to pay heating and cooling costs. It could cover the fees of our medical specialists who don't bulk bill and the gaps on our GP services. We cannot afford to have our car serviced or replace tyres et cetera. The cost of living keeps going up. How are pensioners supposed to keep up with it and remain in our homes? The parties talk about tax cuts eventually taking in higher-income brackets and the possibility of company tax relief. What about pensioners? The My Aged Care scheme is a joke. An even bigger joke expecting pensioners to survive on what they get. The government should take the dole from families who consider unemployment benefits their right and never bother finding jobs. The government instead takes money away from genuine people who don't rip off the system. Australia’s older generation is large and increasing in numbers, so politicians should consider their vote. The older generation could make the difference. Helping pensioners financially would influ-

Think of the children How can we ensure that all our young people thrive and are well-prepared for their future? Our young people should have the opportunity to reach their full potential. For this to happen, a range of fundamentals must be in place. First, young people need to be supported to achieve each of the milestones through childhood to adulthood when they are safe, healthy, housed, loved and educated. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case for parts of our community, for many of our families and for growing numbers of children and young people. In some cases alternative support arrangements need to be put in place to ensure that children and young people receive the support that they need. Our challenge is to decide what our priorities are. With so many families and their children and young people struggling to have their basic needs met we can’t claim to be a strong community.

Future bleak with NEG Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg’s National Energy Guarantee (NEG) is a dud that won’t generate a single MwH of power. What this nation urgently needs is two HELE baseload power stations to replace Hazelwood and the impending closure of Liddell. All the NEG will do is guarantee rolling blackouts due to shortages of dispatchable power. It will also guarantee more-expensive energy because renewables are two to three times more expensive than fossil fuels. The NEG will guarantee a bleak future for our children. It will guarantee declining employment because no company will set up in any country with high energy costs and inadequate baseload power. The NEG will guarantee declining living standards and adversely affect many, including the elderly who, due to expensive power bills, will suffer in winter and summer. Australia urgently needs a new energy policy that places the national interest first and averts a future energy crisis. Alan Barron Geelong Climate Sense Coalition

Iconic Issi never says Dye By Luke Voogt Iconic ‘70s singer and TV host Issi Dye still surprises his fans by reinventing himself at age 72. “I get a lot of, ‘Issi Dye - is he still going?’,” the Melburnian told the Indy. The man born Israel Dyzenhaus will do anything to stay on stage, after a career performing alongside legends like Roy Orbison, Ray Charles and The Beach Boys. “To me it’s a labour of love,” he said. “I work out a few days a week at the gym and I keep myself as trim as possible - sometimes I feel like I’m 92, sometimes like I’m 42.” The demise of variety shows Dye used to appear on regularly had led him to reinvent himself, he said. “If people don’t see you every week you’re finished.” Lately, his love of performing had driven him to take the guise of Johnny O’Keefe or one of the Everly brothers. “Some people don’t even realise I’m doing the show until they arrive there,” he said. “They say, ‘what are you doing as an Everly brother? You used to be Issy Dye!’” Dye is a rarity - a singer who has made the big time with original music now performing as a tribute artist. “It’s unusual for someone like me to be doing it - that’s probably why I enjoy doing it,” he said. “It’s called reinventing yourself. This is my 52nd year in show biz.” Dye remembers the nerve-wrecking experience of producers throwing him into “the deep end”, with minimal rehearsal, when he first performed on TV in the ’60s . “You either sank or swam,” he said. He swam, recording Aussie hits like One

PERFORMER FOREVER: Iconic '70s singer Issi Dye comes to the Potato Shed next Tuesday.

Last Kiss, Personality, I Wonder Where You Are and I’m Counting on You. “It’s been an amazing journey,” he said. “I have been lucky enough to support some of the biggest acts that have come out from America too.” Dye will return to performing as himself

when he comes to the Potato Shed for an intimate concert next Tuesday. “I’ve got a lot of history to talk about but most people want to talk about what they saw on TV when they were 20,” he said. “I’ll have some of my original clips from the 60s.”

Dye will also answer questions from fans wondering “what he’s doing today”, he said. He looked forward to taking his audience down memory lane and getting them in full voice. “I don’t sing to my audience I sing along with them,” he said.

Prison show gets to Point By Luke Voogt The harrowing tale of boys as young as 10 imprisoned in Tasmania has been lost in history - until now. Waurn Ponds actor Will Farnsworth plays 14-year-old Jeremiah in Point of No Return, a play about Point Puer boys’ prison in the 19th Century. “He’s a poor kid from Ireland transported to this jail,” the 21-year-old said. “There were a lot of kids like Jeremiah - it’s quite hard to imagine how horrible it was for these kids. “In this cramped space for months on end only to be brought to this poorly run (prison) and harsh landscape.” Farnworth joins a cast of young actors for the play, which is his first touring production. He was born in Launceston but grew up in Geelong, writing plays and acting at Christian College to indulge in his love of storytelling. “Through high school I was really obsessed with it because of my drama teacher who would talk about great theatre practitioners and how to tell a story on stage,” he said. “I would love to keep doing this for the rest of my life.” Farnworth’s theatre idols Bertolt Brecht and Oscar Wilde inspired him to study literature at Deakin University alongside his acting. “They always made me love how good theatre can change your perspective,” he said.

He looked forward to telling the stories of boys like Jeremiah when Point of No Return comes to the Potato Shed on 20 and 21 July. “What drew me to Point of No Return was its tragic take on these sad but tough lost boys of Tasmania’s history,” he said. “Boys and men (were) forced to grow up in a world which they (felt hated) them, and the legal system let them down through cruelty and incompetence.” The play had “immense modern relevance” given recent debates on child imprisonment, he said. “The play’s historical and subversive significance is one of intrigue and emotional frankness, which at the end carries a vague flicker of hope ... I cannot wait to help bring this story to life.” Scottish expat Alaine Beek wrote the play based on real events at the Point Puer. The play centres on a group of young convicts transported to a prison on south coast of Tasmania, in an experiment aimed at rehabilitating young offenders. Beek first heard the story of Point Puer boys’ prison six years ago when her son was 14. “I discovered the boys were sent over in a prison hulk as young as 10,” she said. “I was absolutely horrified at the thought of what they would have gone through.”

ON A ROLE: Will Farnsworth stars in the tale of boys imprisoned in Tasmania during the 19th Century.

Newtown Edwardian wins Harris Builders have been providing quality renovations and custom new builds for more than 15 years, and its latest award just goes to show it. The company won the 2018 Master Builder Association Victoria’s South West Region Best Renovation $300,000-$500,000 award for transforming an Edwardian home on Pakington Street, Newtown. “It was the first time we have entered anything like this so it was really rewarding to receive such an award, it’s really humbling,” says company director Tom Harris. Harris Builders spent eight months extending and transforming the home for the modern family lifestyle. “We demolished the existing modest two-bedroom home, keeping the front facade and built a much larger family home,“ Tom says. Tom feels humbled by the win and congratulates his tradesmen for their attention to detail on the home’s bespoke finishes, timber feature wall, stone tops and penny marble tiles. “We’re very appreciative of all our trades and the effort they all put in,” he says. Harris Builders’ team of qualified tradesmen have a passion for quality and excellence. Their relationship with their tradesmen and the trust between them are the keys to the businesses success, he says. After decades in the business Tom knows how to spot high-quality craftsmanship and professional, talented tradesman. “I feel like we’ve got a core group of trades that we’re very happy with which makes everything that little bit easier,” he says. Harris Builders’ customised approach to each project sets the company apart from the rest. “We work closely with our clients and are transparent in our approach to ensure the end result is nothing but perfect for our client - we’re not happy until they’re happy” Tom says. “We pride ourselves on supporting local Geelong businesses and have developed a strong local supplier network which is great”.

People missing teeth know their importance to looks and dental health. Fortunately, Norlane Dental’s Dr Rashi Gupta of Norlane Dental offers tooth replacement options to restore appearance and function. “Teeth are designed to work together to chew, speak and smile,” he explains. “But when they're missing it’s difficult to do these things. Even a lost back tooth can cause your mouth to shift and your face to look older.“ Dr Gupta recommends implants as one of three replacement options. “Made of materials acceptable to the human body, implants are posts that function as sturdy anchors for replacement teeth.” Fixed bridges and removable partial den-

Musculoskeletal podiatrist Dr David Kavanagh says flat feet are common but “not usually cause for concern”. “But if there’s associated pain, balance issues or excessive rolling inward of the ankles then seek professional assistance.” “Pigeon and out toes” can affect running, jumping and balance, Dr Kavanagh advises. “These issues may be assisted during the developmental years and should be checked.” Growing and shin pains can also be a concern, Dr Kavanagh says. “Any child who regularly complains of foot or leg pain, has balance or mobility issues

Dental implants can replace missing teeth. tures are the other options. “Fixed bridges are bonded or cemented into place to fill a space left by lost teeth, while removable partial dentures can easily be taken out for cleaning.” Free dental implant consultations with Dr Gupta are available by phoning 1800 246 247.

Great physio Nothing's more rewarding for physio Sophie Crapper than helping people overcome injury. “It’s great helping people get back to what they love, whether it's sport, work or just dayto-day activities,” she says. After nine years as a physio and five specialising in hands and upper limbs, Sophie has joined Olympic Park Sports Medicine Centre’s Geelong campus. “I like being part of a renowned team, working alongside great physios and doctors.” Sophie treats injuries including fractures, sprains and carpal tunnel syndrome. “People don’t realise until they’ve had a hand or upper-limb injury how restrictive it can be,” she says. Olympic Park Sports Medicine Centre is in the heart of central Geelong’s medical precinct.

Silky hearing Waurn Ponds Hearing Clinic constantly reviews new devices to find exactly what customers need. As an independent store, the clinic can fit any brand of device. Audiologist Fiona Sutherland and her team is excited about the new, improved Signia Silk hearing aids. “If you’re been wanting to trial discreet hearing devices but aren’t sure you’d like the feel in your ears then finally we have an instant-fit device that’s available in all levels of technology,” Fiona says. “It’s not a cheap amplifier but a fully programmable hearing aid. The multiple-sized outer sleeve allows for instant fitting and much more air-venting than standard in canal hearing aids, so your voice sounds more natural.

The Dental Sleep Clinic Australia warns that snoring through the night, waking feeling sluggish and struggling throughout the day may be an indication of obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). They also advise that OSA can contribute to weight gain, depression, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure and even heart attacks. “There are currently only two proven treatments for snoring and OSA recommended by sleep physicians - continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) devices and custom-made oral appliances made by trained dentists which bring the lower jaw forward, opening the back of the throat and keeping the airway open,” Clinical Co-Founder of Dental Sleep Clinic Australia Dr Sam Talpis said. “However, many people using a CPAP machine find it uncomfortable and struggle to

Lincoln offer of ‘ideal’ life Lincoln on the Bellarine is more than just providing homes for retirees. The new retirement village at Armstrong Creek is just 8km from the beach and a short drive to the centre of Geelong, offering residents the best of both worlds - coastal living with the convenience of the city nearby. “As a community not-for-profit, our end goal is around having a positive impact in the Bellarine community and reinvesting in a better Victoria,” Peta Gillies says. “We are doing things differently. We want to ensure our residents and their families have a positive quality of life and can live the future they always imagined. One of the ways we will achieve this is by offering an affordable payment model with no deferred management fee. This is a new concept within the retirement living industry and one that will give our residents more transparency and control over costs.”

In times of crisis, you can give

When completed Lincoln on the Bellarine will include a cafe and bar, shared and private dining areas, spacious formal and casual lounge areas, active spaces including a gym and wellness room, recreation areas, aquatic facilities, playground for the grandkids, park and community garden, community orchard and walking trails. “We are thrilled with the level of interest received so far,” Ms Gillies says. “Lincoln on the Bellarine is right in the middle of new schools, retail developments and open spaces. This, combined with our service and activity programming designed to get people out of the village and actively participating in the community, will ensure that all of the benefits of social integration and inclusion are realised for our residents.” Register your interest at

The group will provide a forum for information sharing as the project progresses, and will inform details about how the design of the facility addresses matters such as traffic management, car parking, lighting, noise impact, visual impact, landscaping, flora and fauna, and environmental issues. To be considered for the group, participants will need to be: • recognised as a contributor to the local community • prepared to actively participate in all aspects of the CAG • demonstrate an understanding of local issues within Lara that relate to the project • have a connection with Greater Geelong, either as a resident or a business owner. Providing a new maximum-security facility is an essential part of the Government’s commitment to improving community safety.

Savings from fine service Improving a car’s power by up to 30 per cent while actually improving fuel economy sounds like a big ask for a Land Rover, BMW, Mini or Jaguar or other European marques. Not so, says Hunter Cuthill director Adam Hunter. It’s readily achievable by using top-line Autologic technology, he advises, adding that it’s also a sound way of ensuring efficiency performance in a more-sustainable fashion. Hunter Cuthill, in Geelong West’s Autumn St, specialises in quality independent servicing and repairs to all BMWs, Land Rover, Mini and Jaguars - as per factory schedules and directives and with full book service. The business also services car makes including Peugeot, Renault and Citroen. It is the only service centre in Geelong outside of direct dealers with the software and diagnostic equipment for these brands. “We utilise state of the art diagnostic equipment from Autologic, the world’s leading independent vehicle diagnostic software,” Adam says. “It’s the only independent tool that can program control units. Autologic also offer software power upgrades for diesel and some petrol engines, giving 30 per cent more power while improving fuel economy.” Hunter Cuthill is also right across the best battery choices to meet the energy demands of European cars. VARTA batteries, powered by AGM technology, feature advanced equipment such as start-stop technologies and regenerative braking systems. “This is a battery that delivers optimal performance, faster conductivity and reliable starting power, even when the charge is low,” Adam says. “AGM batteries deliver up to eight times the cyclic stability of conventional flooded batteries resulting in a longer battery life.” Hunter Cuthill is at 9 Autumn St, Geelong West, phone 5229 4299 or visit huntercuthill.

A Nissan for all seasons By Vani Naidoo Take a good look at the Nissan X-Trail. Look like a speed demon to you? It may have the 370Z as a brother but let’s face it, the X-Trail leans towards comfortable, disciplined and tempered rather than the maverick. Unfortunately, the traffic policeman I pointed that out to didn’t seem to bite, nodding patiently while still texting me my infringement (yes, that’s actually a thing). Luckily the senior constable took pity on me, keeping the points to a minimum, although I prefer to consider it my fee for discussing the benefits of the X-Trail in comparison to a similar car from a top competitor that his Dad is looking at buying. He also shared a delightful story about the X-Trail’s prowess during flood-like conditions in the Sunshine Coast hinterland a couple of years ago. The senior constable and his partner watched in awe as a farmer’s wife appeared in an X-Trail to help her husband who had bogged his flashy dual-cab ute. “If she pulls him out in that X-Trail, I am going out to buy one,” the senior constable’s partner said. And that’s exactly what he did. This Nissan X-Trail TL arrived here a touch later than the rest of the updated X-Trail range. It sits at the top of the pack with a new diesel engine and an impressive features list. The X-Trail features a stylish version of the Nissan family grille, suitable flowing lines and snazzy-looking tail lights. The overall design may not be as eye-catching as some competitors, but it is no wallflower either using functionality well to enhance the value package. This Nissan X-Trail is built in Japan, known for its workforce’s ability and attention to detail, and those accomplishments are evident in the interior finish. It is conservative, true, but the TL which sits at the top of the range, does hint at a premium feel with a leather-covered dash,

ABLE: The new X-Trail TL covers a wide range of typical driving needs. a beautiful flat-bottomed steering wheel and switchgear that is difficult to fault. The layout if good with the most used buttons and dials closer to hand and the screens are angled enough to escape the glare of the sun. It feels like there is oodles of room to stretch out in with the wider seats adding to that comfort with the doors opening wider to allow easy entry and exit. Those in the back sit a bit higher making it easier for smaller kids to see out, while taller occupants are only slightly affected by the panoramic sunroof. The rear seats are on rails too, which means you can adjust according to your needs by stealing space from the boot. There are two IsoFix points on the outer rear seats with three top tethers should you be carrying three youngsters. We found fitting a third in the middle was a bit of squash even though it was a booster so perhaps a seven-seater may be a better option. It is worth noting that the TL, a four-wheel-drive variant, does not come with

a seven-seat option, you need the 2WD ST or ST-L for that. The TL has clever storage options including the requisite cupholders and deep door bins. But there is also a very handy open compartment in front of the gear shifter which is deep and wide enough for phones, wallets and their ilk. At 565-litres, the boot is more than adequate for a small family, the squarish opening allowing it to carry far more than you think. There is some under-floor storage too which is always useful especially for wet surfing clothes, and a smaller shelf that can tilt up to protect the groceries from moving around. Like its Ti petrol equivalent, the X-Trail TL is suitably equipped with the impressive features list including 19-inch alloys, rear tinted window, auto headlights and wipers, heated front and rear seats and heated steering wheel, motionactivated power tailgate that actually works, reverse camera, dual-zone climate control keyless entry and start and satellite navigation.

The X-Trail features a 7.0-inch colour touchscreen which is pretty simple to navigate but does feel rather dated. There is no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto as yet but Bluetooth connectivity is good as is the audio quality of phone calls. There is an eight-speaker stereo with digital radio as well as a USB and Auxillary ports for compatible devices. A 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine replaces the 1.6-litre unit that did duty in the previous model. It delivers more power and torque 130kW / 380Nm than the outgoing model but is now paired with a Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) that often feels like it hinders performance rather than supporting it. The X-Trail TL is filled with all those advanced safety features that buyers are now looking for including lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and forward collision warning. The TL does have cruise control but unlike the Ti it is not active. The five-star ANCAP rating also comes courtesy of six airbags, stability and traction control and forward autonomous emergency braking. OK, so let’s start by saying that X-Trail is super easy to drive - surefooted, willing, capable and apparently fast too. The steering is light but accurate, the ride itself is comfortable and all-round visibility is good. It dismisses most bumps quite easily, there is minimal road or cabin noise and it hides that usual diesel clatter on startup quite well. On the highway, the TL is hard to fault, a smooth cruiser, a good over-taker and with enough presence to keep you feeling safe. Look, I shouldn’t like the X-Trail TL given my brush with the law while driving it - but I do. It is easy to drive, easy on the eye, spacious, flexible and filled with safety features and modern niceties. It does a lot of things right both on the bitumen and on secondary roads and a boost in popularity will not be a surprise.

accessed using a voice control button on the steering wheel. Highlander also features a wireless inductive charging pad (Qi standard) for compatible phones. A 10-speaker Infinity Premium Audio System is installed in Santa Fe Elite and Highlander. A 138 kW / 241 Nm four-cylinder 2.4-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine with a sixspeed automatic is sold only with the Active, the lowest cost model. A 147 kW / 440 Nm four-cylinder 2.2-litre turbocharged diesel engine with a new-design eight-speed automatic transmission is available on all three models. In every Santa Fe variant engine power is sent to all four wheels through the new Hyundai-developed HTRAC variable-torque-control all-wheel drive system. In combination with each of the drive modes - Comfort, Eco, Sport and Smart modes - HTRAC optimises traction to individual needs and conditions. Active safety features standard in all three Santa Fe grades include forward collisionavoidance assist, blind-spot monitoring, collision-avoidance assist, lane keep assist and a driver inattention warning From the Elite upwards Santa Fe, there's blind-spot and rear cross-traffic collision avoidance assist systems, as well as driver attention warning, high beam assist and lane keeping assist. Passive safety is provided by a strong body and six airbags: two front, two side and two curtain airbags cover the first and second row seats. Like every Hyundai passenger car and SUV the Santa Fe has done many thousands of kilometres of suspension and handling tuning for Australia, done on country and city roads. “First and foremost it had to be comfortable for families; it had to be safe with good recovery after big bumps, and we sprinkled in some fun-to-drive,” said Andrew Tuitahi, Hyundai Motor Company Australia Senior Manager Product Planning. We haven't driven the new gen-four Hyundai Santa Fe yet, but will do so asap and get back to you with our impressions.

By Ewan Kennedy Hyundai Santa Fe is now in its fourth generation, has a stylish look, extensive safety features and a strong emphasis on connectivity. Operating in the increasingly popular seven-seat SUV field Santa Fe is larger than its predecessor. It is 70mm longer, at 4770mm, rides on a 65mm greater wheelbase (2765mm). Front overhang is unchanged, but the rear overhang is greater by 5mm. Ground clearance of 185mm means it's not quite a 4WD, but will be able to handle bush trails and the like. Santa Fe is available in the company's usual three trim levels: Active, Elite and Highlander. The 2019 Santa Fe has Hyundai's new-design Cascading Grille and an interesting splitlighting design. Bi-function headlights in the Santa Fe Highlander feature a bending function to light the way into and around corners as you turn the steering wheel. Alloy wheels for each of the three Santa Fe grades span 17- to 19-inches in diameter. Second-row legroom is increased by 29mm and an 18mm-higher seat base brings a better view forward and to the side. The secondrow seat bases slide through 300mm to let you juggle space. The rear floor tunnel is lowered from 53mm to 26mm to allow extra space for the legs of the centre-rear occupant. Third-row access space is increased by 36mm to 170mm.

GREAT DAY: Max Rooke during his vote-winning performance in the 2009 premiership.

Ottens, Rooke into side's Hall of Fame By Justin Flynn Two Geelong premiership stars will be inducted into the club’s Hall of Fame next month. Ruck/forward Brad Ottens and swingman Max Rooke will be honoured at an event at GMHBA Stadium on Friday 17 August. The club’s 17th legend will also be unveiled, three new life members will be announced and the announcement of the 2018 RJ Hickey award. Ottens played 116 games for Geelong after crossing from Richmond, where he played 129 games. Ottens played in three premierships for the Cats after being taken at number two in the draft by the Tigers in 1997. After debuting in round one 2005, Ottens became the 1000th player to play for Geelong. Rooke played 135 games and was a part of the 2007 and 2009 premierships. He was among the best on ground, garnering votes in the Norm Smith Medal. Rooke booted the first and last goals in the low-scoring affair as the Cats prevailed by 12 points in a classic contest. Geelong’s VFL side faces Sandringham on Sunday. The Cats enjoyed a 70-point win against Frankston last weekend and are third on the ladder, a game behind pacesetters Richmond and Casey. George Horlin-Smith, Lachie Henderson and Stewart Crameri (five goals) were among the listed players to put their names forward for future senior selection. Sandringham is 11th on the ladder with a

BIG CAT: Brad Ottens in the 2009 grand final against St Kilda. 5-6 record and won’t be a pushover, although the Dragons were disappointing in a draw against the winless Coburg last week. Sunday’s game looms as a season definer. It’s a tough run home. The Cats face Casey (second) and Richmond (first) in their following two games and then face the highly competitive Essendon (fourth) before finishing with likely wooden spooners Coburg and Box Hill (fifth). Sunday’s game starts at 2pm at Trevor Barker Beach Oval, Sandringham. The VFLW team squares off against Southern Stars tomorrow.

The Cats are coming off a 65-point hiding at the hands of a rampant Northern Territory Thunder in Darwin. Geelong was held goalless for the first half as the Thunder lapped up the hot conditions on their home deck in the Top End. The loss saw the Thunder leapfrog Geelong on the ladder into third spot. Richelle Cranston was in good form, booting a goal and again among the best players. The Southern Saints are also coming off a loss. Casey Demons proved too good by 11 points. Tomorrow’s game starts at 1pm at Deakin University, Waurn Ponds.

With the past week bringing some of the harshest winter conditions many anglers would have encountered, anyone lucky enough to have banked a fish certainly earned their catch. As has been the case for the past few months, Corio Bay thankfully proved some limited relief from the weather. Snotty trevlla and mullet remained present in vast numbers along Cunningham Pier, while Australian salmon were taken at times on soft plastics like Berkley three-inch minnows worked along the bottom. The Bellarine Peninsula hosted some squid action, with the Queenscliff Harbour giving up reasonable numbers for anglers casting size-three jigs. Point Lonsdale Pier again produced large salmon to almost 3kg on bait and lure during the last of the run-in tide. The Barwon River estuary also offered shelter, with fishos using fresh bait taking the odd mulloway. On the freshwater front, Lakes Purrumbete and Bullen Merri were on fire with a mixture of trout species. Rainbow and brown trout and Chinook salmon snapped up lures flat-line trolled at first and last light. Fishing Powerbait from the shoreline at Bullen Merri was a sure bet, accounting for catches of Chinook salmon and rainbow trout to 2kg. Closer to home, Highton’s St Augustine’s Waterhole was a fantastic option for the kids. Plenty of feisty stocked rainbow trout were taken on Powerbait and Rapala f-5 lures. Stony Creek Reservoir also provided some shelter. Anglers casting spoontype lures banked rainbow trout to 1kg. Over the next week anglers should keep an eye on St Leonards for both whiting and squid, while tuna should pop up down around Portland. At this time of year, freshwater anglers could do well on trophy-size brown trout at Wurdiboluc Reservoir.

SNOT BAD: Cunningham Pier has again provided top fishing for snotty trevalla.

Warriors seek to conjure Magic as in-form teams line up By Josip Zilic A golden opportunity went begging for North Geelong Warriors last week when a 2-1 lead slipped in the final minutes to end up in a 2-2 draw with Brunswick at home. Despite the slip-up the Warriors maintain their undefeated streak, now stretching to nine games after seven wins and two draws. The next three weeks pits North Geelong against teams that are all promotion aspirants, starting with top-of-the-league Altona Magic at Paisley Park this Saturday night. Altona itself boasts an impressive run in recent weeks, culminating in a 7-1 demolition of Melbourne Victory last week. Previous Geelong SC forward Daniel Kuczynski, now starring for Altona, was in fine form last week, nailing a hat-trick. Jon McShane, now up to 12 goals for the year, will also be an everpresent danger for North Geelong’s back line. Along with defensive concentration, the Warriors will need to work on putting their

chances away after failing to capitalise on several opportunities in the first half against Brunswick when they had the ascendancy. North Geelong’s first half was again a wellexecuted forward-pressing plan. The goals came from Jamie Noggler with a well- taken free kick, giving Seb Mattei no chance of clawing it away from the top corner, and from Darius Madison heading home a Noggler cross into the six-yard area. However, after returning from the break the Warriors were unable to sustain the ascendancy and were overrun in the middle, putting their defence under threat too often. Brunswick kept piling on the pressure and, as the match settled in the dying minutes, Jakub Micak thrust his body forward from a whipped ball-in that bypassed five North Geelong defenders. Micak’s ball slot past Hamish Flavell, tying up the score. With the league’s top teams to take on in the next few weeks, the Warriors have no better time to stand up and show the league their talent.
