Fears for plovers in fun run’s path

New bridge names set to be revealed BY MICHELLE HERBISON NAMES for Barwon Heads’ new bridges will be revealed in a special ceremony on Sunday, according to Vicroads. Regional director Robin Miles said Barwon Heads Primary School’s captains would announce the names. “The names were submitted by the community during last year’s Vicroads Barwon Heads Bridge naming competition,” she said. The timing of the official opening and naming ceremony coincided with completion of work around the bridges. The road bridge has been open since November, 2010 and the pedestrian crossing since April this year. “The event and associated activities have been planned for and budgeted as part of the overall bridge project,” Ms Miles said. “We’re thrilled to be officially naming the two bridges, which are such an important link between the towns of Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads.” State Labor Member for Bellarine Lisa Neville said the Baillieu Government was “hypocritical” for taking credit for the bridges. “They campaigned strongly against the bridges and it was a key campaign issue for Andrew Katos in particular. Now to be there on Sunday taking credit is just extraordinary.” Mr Katos, Liberal Member for South Barwon, said the Government supported the bridges despite opposing them in while in opposition. “The reality is the bridge is now operational and the community is entitled to mark the occasion with an event,” he said. “The Barwon Heads community has had enough political wrangling over this project.” Mr Katos said Vicroads staff would provide information and answer questions at the ceremony. Barwon Heads’ Lahey Square rotunda will host a free sausage sizzle and entertainment for the ceremony from midday to 2pm Sunday.

tide so people will pass over the hard sand and hopefully the birds will run to the upper beach and hide,” he said. Mr Murray was also concerned the run’s support vehicle could “squash” the plover chicks. The hooded plover was particularly vulnerable, he said. “They have the lowest rate of chick survival of any bird in the world. Out of 75 eggs laid this season only three chicks have survived.” Mr Murray said the area had hosted five nests this breeding season but a fox attacked one, another was abandoned and a third “disappeared”. Peter Rankin, of run organiser Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club, said members cared about the birds’ survival. “We work with Barwon Coast, City of Greater Geelong and Birds Australia to make sure we take every possible step to not disturb any plovers nesting at the time,” he said. The club had not considered diverting the course. “In the past relocation hasn’t been suggested but in the past the birds haven’t been in the way,” Mr Rankin said. “Relocation would be very difficult to do at this point in time and the fun run is very important to the surf club.” Mr Rankin said volunteers from Birds Australia usually helped to protect the hooded plovers during the fun run.

AN ANNUAL Rip to River fun run threatens to trample endangered hooded plover chicks wandering Point Lonsdale Beach, according to an environmentalist. Geelong Environment Council president Joan Lindros called on organisers to divert the course to protect the unhatched birds. Birds Australia said the chicks were set to hatch from the Point Lonsdale area’s two surviving hooded plover nests. One nest’s chicks should hatch on the beach this Saturday and the other on Boxing Day, Birds Australia said. The fun run is scheduled to pass along the beach on December 27. Ms Lindros said the Rip to River threatened the plovers’ habitat. She urged organisers to reconsider their route between Point Lonsdale’s lighthouse and the Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club. “We’ve got lots of beach. We don’t have to run on the same spot where the plovers are. “People should understand we’re not the only ones who require the beach and we can move much more easily than the vulnerable birds.” Birds Australia volunteer John Murray said he was worried the birds would roam the beach to feed during the fun run. “The run will be at low

“We do a lot of stuff together and we love it.� Barry and Kim plan to compete in the one-kilometre bay swim at the multi sport festival from February 10 to 12. “I don’t think we’ll be competitive given that we’re cyclists but we’ll see how we go,� Barry said. “Maybe in our age group we’ll go all right.� The multi sport festival will also include a fun run and short-

course triathlons for individuals, teams and relay groups. The final day will host Olympic and longcourse triathlons.

The Independent, Friday December 9, 2011


in brief

Commission ‘to hear Nelson Park parents’ BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A GROUP of Nelson Park parents have taken their complaints about the special school to Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission. Julie Senko, Heather Bowdern and Rebecca Earney said they and three other parents would lodge formal complaints with the commission about treatment of students at the school. The commission is conducting a “major research project” after complaints about disability discrimination in schools doubled in the past two years. Acting commissioner Karen Toohey said the organisation had heard concerns from parents of children with

disabilities, advocacy groups for the disabled and members of the commission’s disability reference group. “Concerns included lack of equal access to education, discipline issues including suspension and exclusion, behaviour management strategies and access to appropriate transport services,” Ms Toohey said. The Independent revealed last week that an internal Education Department regional office investigation of Nelson Park parents’ complaints found no “breaches” of policy. A department spokesperson said the “constructive process” had found “areas for improvement, particularly in the way the school can engage with

Tennis served GEELONG Lawn Tennis Club will host a Davis Cup tie between Australia and China, Premier Ted Baillieu has announced. Mr Baillieu said the event would provide a “big economic boost” to Geelong as visitors travelled to the city for the “major sporting event coup”.

Fares rise

“We were given no recourse if we were unhappy with the outcome, so we’ve decided to go to the commission. “Regional office is covering up the shortcomings of Nelson Park school. The parents said their issues included a lack of accountability, independence and transparency at the school and in its processes. “The regional office has consistently refused to organise meetings between parents and the principal.” Ms Toohey said the commission would survey students, parents and educators as part of the research project. A statewide telephone call-in last week gathered stories from people directly affected, she said.

Last week: The internal investigation clears Nelson Park. parents”. The spokesperson said an “action plan” had been drawn up, including a review of the school’s student engagement and parent complaint policies. Ms Bowdern said the parents were unhappy with the investigation.

GEELONG commuters will pay hundreds of dollars more a year to travel on trains to work in Melbourne, according to State Government. The Government announced an 8.6 per cent fare hike this week, with peak return tickets rising $1.60 to $20.60 from January 1.

Pay wins A CARETAKER and a signwriter have won back pay of almost $30,000 after investigations of two Geelong employers, the Fair Work Ombudsman has revealed. A statement from the Ombudsman’s office said the 50-year-old caretaker received $19,200 and $10,000 was paid to the sign writer in his late 20s after their employers corrected “errors” leading to the underpayments.

Golden wines FOUR WINERIES in the Geelong region have won gold medals at a prestigious Concours des Vinc du Victoria in Melbourne, according to their industry body. Geelong Wine said Austin Wines, Leura Park Estate and Clyde Park and Jack Rabbit vineyards helped consolidate the region’s reputation for producing “outstanding cool climate” products.

Plains mayor GOLDEN Plains Shire councillors have elected Geraldine Frantz to a second term as mayor. Cr Frantz used her acceptance speech to highlight the push for a secondary school at Bannockburn as council’s “number one priority”.

Library opens A NEW $5.3 million library has opened at Waurn Ponds. City of Greater Geelong said the library, on Pioneer Rd next to Leisurelink, would be open 57 hours a week with equipment and facilities including public-use computers, iPads, gaming consoles and “a comprehensive collection of books”.

Region on the road to safety messages for Christmas GIFT cards and a new advertising campaign are fighting the road toll across the region in the lead up to the festive season, according to TAC headquarters. The TAC said both campaigns were aimed at drink driving after 29 deaths statewide during a “traumatic” November for Victoria. The organisation last week launched Christmas “gift vouchers” offering recipients a ride home over the holiday season. TAC chief Janet Dore called the voucher cards, available at tac.vic.gov.au, a quirky means of help-

ing keep the road toll down. “Giving your mate one of these vouchers for Christmas is a fun way to say you care about them and you want them to stay safe on the roads,” she said.

JAMES STREET DENTAL CENTRE

“This might be more of a fun, light-hearted concept and, while it might not seem like a big deal, giving this gift could literally save lives.” The TAC followed up the cards’ release with a new Bloody Idiot advertising campaign telling drinkers to stay off the road. TAC senior road safety and marketing manager John Thompson said the campaign was timed to coincide with pre-Christmas festivities. “We’re not saying don’t have a good time at Christmas parties, we’re just saying organise your trip before you go out so you can get home safely.”

Police identify dead Corio man, bonnet victim released BY ERIN PEARSON POLICE have identified a man fatally stabbed in Corio last weekend as 32year-old Sidney Thorpe. Homicide Detective Senior Sergeant Stephen McIntyre said Mr Thorpe had been staying with relatives in Whittington only a few days before his alleged murder. He was found with stab wounds to

his chest at a Buffalo Ave house on December 3. Police said ambulance crews worked on Mr Thorpe but he died at the scene. Homicide detectives charged Corio’s Gordon Williams, 36, with Mr Thorpe’s murder earlier this week. Mr Williams was remanded in custody following a court hearing on Tuesday. He will reappear in Geelong

Magistrates Court in April. Meanwhile, a St Albans man critically injured after falling from a car bonnet in Newtown has left hospital. An Alfred Hospital spokesperson said doctors downgraded his condition to stable before releasing him this week. The 38-year-old man was flown to Melbourne from Geelong Hospital last

Friday night. Police said the car he was riding on travelled a short distance before hitting a gutter, throwing him head-first into the ground. Police questioned the 37-year-old driver, also from St Albans, over the incident. Police asked witnesses to phone Crimestoppers on 1800 333 000.

Kinder pilots set to fly into four-year-old classroom Ban call on ‘Bells BY MICHELLE HERBISON

ST PAUL’S Lutheran Kindergarten has a brand new room in time for a pilot program next year to offer 15 hours a week of kinder to its four-year-olds. The State Governmentfunded program will prepare the Grovedale kinder for new Commonwealth rules making the 15 hours mandatory from 2013. St Paul’s volunteer committee member Tamara Jennings said the independent kinder was proud to be one of only three in Geelong to receive $200,000 from State Government for the new building. Ms Jennings said kinder savings, a loan and business donations covered the remaining cost of the

$350,000 project. Ms Jennings said having a second room meant St Paul’s two three-year-old groups would spend five hours a week at kinder next year. “We’ll be able to provide 15 hours for two four-yearold groups and five hours for two three-year-old groups next year.” Ms Jennings said St Paul’s intended to increase enrolments in the future but was “easily full” for next year. “This is the best case scenario for the next 12 months but we do expect to expand in the future,” she said. The Education Department said Belmont Community and Lara Lake kindergartens also received $200,000 refurbishment grants to participate in next year’s pilot program.

BY ERIN PEARSON TOURISM buses have become a safety threat in Bells Beach Surfing Reserve, according to a community group. Bells Beach Preservation Society called for an immediate ban on buses in the reserve. Society member Andrew Dickenson said a meeting including State Government and Surf Coast Shire representatives last week heard advice that an accident was only a “matter of time”. “They can no longer look away and hope everything will be all right in the end,” he said. South Barwon MP Andrew Katos said the Government and the shire were investigating moving buses out of the reserve. He was aware of the safety concerns but opposed an immediate buses ban. “Surf Coast Shire manages the reserve so I can’t make decisions for them. “Everyday user groups have their views on traffic at Bells Beach but state policy for tourism has to be considered also.”

Supermarkets confirm Islamic supply switch

Halal meat ‘the same’ BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN MAJOR supermarket chains have confirmed they sell halal meat in Geelong. But butchers are confused about whether their meat is halal or not. The supermarket’s confirmation followed Australian Meat Industry Employees Union telling the Independent last week that abattoirs including Corio’s MC Herd were slaughtering with halal practices. A Coles spokesperson said halal meat processing was mostly the same as usual slaughtering practices. “Australian beef, chicken and lamb processors often prepare their product to halal specifications to ensure it’s

available to a wide domestic customer base as well as the export market. “There’s certainly no change in the composition of the meat or to the high animal welfare standards expected. “We have reviewed our policy on meat labelling and can confirm that our products are labelled in line with all legal and regulatory requirements.” An IGA spokesperson said halal meat was not universal in its supermarkets. “We have outlets that serve Muslim communities and some that sell kosher meat product for Jewish communities,” he said. “Local supermarkets tend to source their meat from local butchers, so it

varies from store to store. “There’s no difference in the meat, so it (halal slaughter) doesn’t have to be declared.” A Woolworths spokesperson said the company’s meat suppliers “complied with industry practice”. Australian Meat Industry Employees Union assistant secretary Paul Conway told the Independent last week that many halal processors were killing animals without stunning them first. He said stunning sometimes drew blood, meaning the animal could no longer be considered halal. A Geelong mother, who declined to be identified, said she contacted eight

local butchers after reading the Independent to ask whether their meat was halal. Seven of the eight confirmed their supplier was MC Herd. One butcher confirmed it lost a contract with Barwon prison because its meat was not halal, she said. “The butchers themselves weren’t too sure about slaughtering techniques and presumed animals were stunned,” she said. “I’m worried about the humane aspect and any method that reduces suffering should be used. “This appears to be a regulatory problem.”

Global giant tests unmanned aircraft at St Leonards

Flying into the ‘danger zone’ BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A GLOBAL aerospace company has been using a little-known St Leonards airfield to test an unmanned aircraft system. Aerosonde chief pilot Paul Herrmann said the Bellarine Peninsula airfield was ideal for the project. The company was running tests several times a year, Mr Herrman said. Federal Government’s Air-services Australia identified the airfield as “designated airspace” with “two danger zones” when testing was underway, he said. “The site is sparsely populated and we have the access to fly away from populated areas immediately should the need arise,” Mr Hermann said. “There is no legal requirement for people to stay out of the danger zones but it tells people what happens in that designated airspace. “It’s pretty handy for us, based in Notting Hill, to get to when we need to do some testing.” Mr Hermann said Aerosonde

Rhode Island, USA, Textron is ranked 233rd on the FORTUNE 500 list of largest US companies. Mr Harmann said Aerosonde was using St Leonards to test its Mark 4.7 small unmanned aircraft system. The Mark 4.7 was the first unmanned aircraft to penetrate the eye of a hurricane as part of a NASA and US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration program, he said. “The Aerosonde aircraft flew a mission of more than 17 hours, a record 7.5 hours spent navigating Hurricane Noel’s eye and boundary layer.” A recent Geelong regional airport feasibility study said the St Leonards airfield offered two crossing gravel runways of 700m and 650m. The study said the danger zones extended above the airfield within a two nautical mile radius and out into Port Phillip Bay.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A WIDER variety of events could come to Simonds Stadium with the Cats being gifted a new training venue, according to Mayor John Mitchell. Cr Mitchell said scheduling at the stadium would be more flexible with the football club using it less. “It gives us greater opportunity to have different events at Simonds Stadium because we can work around the Cats’ commitments more easily. “For instance, we announced this week the pre-season rugby union game between the Melbourne Rebels and the Waikato Chiefs. “The game they say is played in heaven will now be played on the hallowed turf of Simonds Stadium. “But we still have our bid planned for the T20 cricket, there’s the World Cup cricket and I’m keen to see an A League soccer match played here.” Geelong Football Club has announced a sponsorship agreement with Keystone Business Park, including development of indoor training facilities and an MCG-sized oval worth more than $8 million at Armstrong Creek. Cr Mitchell said a lower level of AFL use at Simonds Stadium would reduce the wear and tear on its surface, reducing costs to council. “It takes a lot of traffic off the oval, so I’d expect the maintenance of the surface would be easier,” he said. “We wouldn’t have to do the amount of repairs, so that would be a cost saving.” Cr Mitchell said the Cats would

remain the anchor tenant but the terms of the lease agreement would be renegotiated once the new Armstrong Creek facility was complete. “There’s also the opportunity to get an extra AFL game, especially after the redevelopment is completed.” Cr Mitchell said the City had committed $3 million to the redevelopment “and that’s where it sits”. “We support redevelopment but we’re mindful that it needs to be a quality redevelopment that meets needs of the people of Geelong as well as the club. “We don’t want to compromise on that. There will have to be some modifications but they have got to stack up. “The lights are the key component for us in terms of attracting more events.” Cats chief Brian Cook said the freeing up of Simonds Stadium was a “welcome benefit to this agreement”. Mr Cook said the club needed an alternative training venue because more events would be held on the grass at Simonds Stadium. “When the rugby, soccer or concerts are on we need to find somewhere else to train. “We’ve used eight different venues since I've been at the club, so this is ideal for us. Simonds Stadium will remain our major training venue.” Mr Cook said the Armstrong Creek deal was completed after five years of negotiations. “It's the first of its type that we’re aware of in Australia." Melbourne Rebels will play Waikato Chiefs on February 3.

BY ERIN PEARSON THE SAFETY of patients at Geelong Hospital will be at risk if security guards fail to secure pay rises, their union has warned. Security union officials said the hospital’s six guards voted to back strike action on Tuesday. The strike could begin “within days�, they said. The guards are the latest workers to join a wave of industrial action to have swept Geelong since September. United Voice State Secretary Jess Walsh blamed the guards’ employer, MSS Security for paying inadequate wages. “Unfortunately it’s not just the ill who find themselves in hospitals,� Ms Walsh said. “Hospitals are also a magnet for the dangerous and the deranged and we need experi-

enced guards to ensure safety. “If MSS continues to refuse to back fair pay then our hospitals may be left dangerously exposed.� Ms Walsh said rival security contractors had agreed to an annual four per cent pay rise. Barwon Health spokeswoman Kate Nelson said the hospital was unaware of security staff planning industrial action. Patient safety would remain a hospital “priority� if the guards went on strike, she said. “If Barwon Health did experience industrial action by guards we have an internal team that is trained to respond to all emergencies. It currently supports the guards as required. “Patient safety is a priority and we will work with our staff and the security contracting firm, should it be required, to ensure this.�

Australian Nursing Federation’s Lisa Fitzpatrick said more than 300 Geelong nurses attended a lunchtime rally at the hospital on Tuesday as part of their ongoing statewide pay action. The nurses also opposed planned split shifts and replacements of some nursing staff with “health assistants�, Ms Fitzpatrick said. “Lower nursing numbers are linked to poorer patient care with outcomes like higher infection rates, complications, deep vein thrombosis, sepsis and pressure ulcers.� Avalon Airport cleaners went on strike in September over an ongoing pay dispute. Last month the Independent revealed that Spotless cleaners at Corio Shopping Centre had also voted to take industrial action for extra pay and improved working conditions.

MP gives talk on pokies evil machines, he said. Mr Cheeseman scheduled the forum for Torquay Bowling Club on Thursday this week after the Independent went to press. Clubs Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rally at Buckleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on Monday night attracted 400 to 500 people, according to Geelong and District Football League president Neville Whitley. He said some of the crowd came from Melbourne, Warrugul, Portland, Wallan and Bendigo. Mr Whitley said the campaign would continue at a grassroots level. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need those at the rally to be the custodians and ambassadors of their pubs and clubs and get the message out to their patrons and members.â&#x20AC;? Mr Whitley said the rally â&#x20AC;&#x153;sent the message out to government that mandatory pre-commitment was not the way to goâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;State Government and the industry have their finger on the pulse in attacking problem gambling,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The money this policy is costing the Federal Government could be better put into research and training for programs for problem gamblers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The industry already works closely with groups assisting problem gamblers.â&#x20AC;? Mr Whitley said he planned to attend Mr Cheesemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forum â&#x20AC;&#x153;as an observerâ&#x20AC;?. The Clubs Victoria rally invited Mr Cheeseman and Labor Member for Corio Richard Marles but neither attended.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A LABOR MP has countered a Geelong rally against proposed pokie laws with his own from forum targeting council planning officers. Member for Corangamite Darren Cheeseman said he wanted local government planners to understand the ramification of their decisions when approving poker machines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of a key stakeholderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forum. We want to outline to planners and social policy makers exactly whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening at a grassroots level,â&#x20AC;? Mr Cheeseman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When doing a planning approval for more pokies, planners need to know all the social dislocation involved in their decision. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s money that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go into small business, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go into jobs and 40 per cent is from problem gamblers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every time someone goes to a pokie venue they have to set their loss limit. It forces people to confront the question â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;How much will I lose this week?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is why the pokie barons are fighting so hard against it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they know it will be effective. Why are they screaming so hard if it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t impact on their profits?â&#x20AC;? Mr Cheeseman said Federal Community Services Minister Jenny Macklin would attend with Australian Churches Gambling Taskforce chair Tim Costello. Church representatives and staff from human services agencies Bethany and Salvation Army would present stories of clients addicted to poker

BY ERIN PEARSON HE’S HELPED fight some of Geelong’s most horrific fires. Now Geelong fireman Graham Lay is preparing to work alongside Victoria Police in a program tracking blaze patterns and preventing deadly arson attacks around the state. Mr Lay, a CFA member for 27 years, said he would transfer skills developed in the Geelong region to his new statewide role. The tracking program began as a three-month trial but would run again for six months, he said. “I’m keen to be involved in any initiative that could reduce arson, so I was interested in this opportunity from day one,” he said. “I’ll be working on patterns and trends and in investigative matters with detectives. “It’s completely different to what I normally do, so it’s very refreshing to now be able to assist in a bigger way.” Mr Lay said working on cases involving Geelong’s “fair share” of arsonists had given him knowledge to help prevent arson around Victoria. After close to three decades in the red and yellow of firefighters’ uniforms, Mr Lay said he had found the job of his dreams. “I was originally posted to Ballan before moving to Norlane and felt I’d always been destined to join the CFA as a career,” he said. “My most memorable fire was on my first day in the job when Jackson’s Meatworks went up

Shops ‘threat’ to meatworks BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG’S only remaining abattoir is concerned about its future amid plans for a commercial centre across the road, according to management. MC Herd managing director Frank Herd said his business had faced a number of attempts to infringe on the abattoir’s buffer zone. “We will be protecting the buffer zone and this is an issue we will take up with council,” Mr Herd said. The Independent reported last month that council had a new draft

structure plan including a commercial centre opposite MC Herd in Bacchus Marsh Rd, Corio. Councillor Cameron Granger told the Independent council would encourage the proposed business precinct to stimulate investment and employment. The precinct could include retails shops and warehousing. Australasian Meat Industry Employees Union assistant secretary Paul Conway shared Mr Herd’s concerns. “We have 230 members employed there, so we certainly hope his business can continue,”

Mr Conway said. “I’ve spoken to him (Mr Herd) previously about development creeping in on him. As a union we would join with Frank and offer our support on any front. “We will also follow it up with (federal Member for Corio) Richard Marles. Cr Granger said he was keen to see a large employer like MC Herd “unencumbered”. “They might have plans to shift at some point but any shift should be well into the future without residential encroachments on their buffer zone.”

The program had operated for almost 10 years with eight staff, she said. Community Connections failed to understand why a review into its Warrnambool operations resulted in loss of the Geelong programs, she said. The Geelong office would continue operating other services. The Community Connections board was considering challenging the decision and exploring legal options, the spokesperson said.

Sounds interesting: Geelong Community Orchestra takes to the stage. with Melbourne orchestras and choirs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have players aged from 18 to 80 all playing at a demanding standard. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It gives young musicians in particular an opportunity to play

concerts. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important because where else would they get to play? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Without these opportunities they might give music away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people learn an instrument at school but 99 per cent donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pursue a music career.

City to upsize bins under new waste collection deal BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG households will receive larger bins as part of a revised tender for council waste collection services, according to City Hall. The City said council would progressively move from the standard 120-litre garbage bins to 140-litre models. High-rise units, private complexes and retirement villages would have the choice of using 660-litre noncouncil-owned bins, the City said. Council would also trial larger 360-litre recycling bins. The larger recycling bins could replace existing 240-litre models when residents requested multiple receptacles for recyclable materials, the City said.

Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s environment and sustainability portfolio holder, John Doull, said a review of the service recommended changes. The changes would ensure the kerbside collection service continued to cope with population growth in the next five years, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our three-bin system is a way we can encourage residents to regularly recycle their waste and it has proven effective so far. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The adopted changes will help us to continue to deliver the service efficiently as the population changes and grows.â&#x20AC;? Cr Doull said council would advertise the tender in January, with the new service to begin in July, 2013.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a way to get together and make music so all those years of training donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to waste. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helps players keep up their technique â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep playing, you lose it.â&#x20AC;? Carmel said GCO had a sub-

scriber base of people who regularly attended the orchestraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s concerts. Carmel said the orchestra was always looking for more players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re particularly looking for string players at the moment but it

ITâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S NOT well-known but Geelong in fact has its own symphony orchestra. Geelong Community Orchestra (GSO) is a 45-piece, communitybased group combining professional and amateur musicians of all ages. Orchestra president Carmel Edwards said GCO presented an annual concert series in Geelong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We perform a diverse range of music and it gives the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finest vocal and instrumental soloists an opportunity to showcase their talent,â&#x20AC;? Carmel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Often weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll combine with other musical groups to present major choral and orchestral works throughout the region.â&#x20AC;? Carmel said GCO also played

has to be balanced like a footy team â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have too many full-forwards. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ideally weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to have 10 first violins, 10 second violins and eight cellos but there arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as many string players around these days.â&#x20AC;? Carmel said GCO raised its funding from ticket sales and membership, with the odd fundraiser thrown in as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hiring or purchasing music scores can be expensive, costing up to $500, so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never say no to a sponsorship,â&#x20AC;? Carmel laughed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clonard College and Sacred Heart College support us with rehearsal space and use of a performance venue and that helps a lot. Orchestra musical director Allister Cox is a teacher, performer and conductor who also serves as president of the Geelong Music Teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Association and Cantor at St Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Basilica. Carmel said more information was available on the GCOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at www.geelongcommunityorchestra.com.

letters Habitat for golfers JOAN Lindros’s claim that the redevelopment of Point Lonsdale’s golf course would put important habitat at risk (Independent, November 25) failed to acknowledge that the redevelopment would in fact increase the area of flora and fauna habitat by converting farmland from cattle grazing to mixed fairway and habitat similar to the existing course. Sports facilities like golf courses, bowls clubs and sports arenas are vital to community health. Lonsdale Golf Club, like many in Australia, is struggling with high costs of everything involved in its management. It needs to reinvent itself to stay viable, otherwise it will close, the land will be sold and no doubt rezoned for housing, with the loss of some of the best fauna and flora habitat on the Bellarine Peninsula. Does Ms Lindros want this to happen? If she really believes in habitat conservation should join the club to help other members who toil week after week to preserve and enhance this great asset. Ross May Point Lonsdale

OUR REGION IS GROWING - HOW DO YOU WANT IT TO LOOK? The G21 Regional Growth Plan is one of eight plans being developed across Victoria to respond to the challenges associated with growth. It will identify opportunities for accommodating future residential growth, employment and associated infrastructure in our region.

Gambling with jobs

An initial phase of the project has involved the development of draft principles for regional growth, and a set of growth scenarios for the future to encourage discussion about how our region should look and function in the future.

AS A FREQUENT visitor to Geelong, I couldn’t help but notice stories in last week’s Independent promoting a pro-pokies rally, a threat to a local member and a report on upgrades to Buckley’s Entertainment Centre as another newspaper reported that one in five Geelong residents was unemployed. No exploitation? No conspiracy? John Francis Middle Park

YOU ARE INVITED We are inviting the community to tell us what they think about the draft principles and scenarios for the growth of our region. Your feedback will help to guide the development of the draft G21 Regional Growth Plan.

Cuts for kids

To find out more about the project, the draft principles and scenarios for growth or to have a say about Shaping Our Region you can participate in the following ways:

• Drop in on of our many ‘Listening Posts’ being conducted across the region until 11 December 2011 (refer full list of locations at g21regionalgrowthplan.com.au)

I AM CONCERNED that the Baillieu Government has under-funded the early intervention child protection programs of 17 service providers across the Barwon-South Western region, placing local children at risk. The Baillieu Government has failed to provide additional funding for the Child FIRST program despite a significant increase in demand across the state. Child FIRST provides early intervention services to prevent the escalation of problems in families identified as being at risk. By failing to invest in early intervention programs like Child FIRST, the Baillieu Government is forcing more families into Department of Human Services child protection, placing more stress on the system. Despite more families accessing Child FIRST, Community Services Minister Mary Wooldridge has failed to increase the number of places for Child FIRST. The result will be inevitable: more children

Not the marrying kind IT WAS disappointing the ALP national conference passed the marriage equality proposal. When I was at school my English teacher told my class that words have a specific and definite meaning. If this were not so, legal contracts would not be enforceable or binding. When we talk about the word marriage, it has a clear and precise meaning always understood down through the ages. Historically, there have been four things the word marriage conveys: • the possibility of producing children, which needs a male and a female; • the right of children to be nurtured by both masculine and feminine influences, usually the father and mother, which goes to the heart of nurturing and protecting children as they grow and develop into well-balanced adults; • the transference of the family name and inheritance of property; and • sexual fidelity, or the eschewing of promiscuity. Can two people of the same gender meet the above conditions? Clearly they cannot. Same-sex couples can have a relationship formalised, which can be given any name but it can’t be called marriage. Gay marriage cannot meet all the above four criteria, so gay marriage is therefore an oxymoron. The lovely word marriage should not be bastardised to placate the whim of a vociferous minority. Alan Barron Grovedale

Why oh why, dear liar? NOT ONCE has Prime Minister Julia Gillard answered the question as to why she misled the public about the carbon tax. All she has ever done is accuse the opposition of negativity and still the question remains unanswered. We were deceived during the election, so I think we deserve to hear the truth and not her evasive accusations when the question is asked. Christina Dengler Norlane

placed at risk. This comes on the back of Ms Wooldridge’s failure to rule out specialist infant protective officers losing their jobs as part of her restructuring of the department. Ms Wooldridge needs to act now to provide the funding needed for early intervention programs and to guarantee staff won’t be cut to keep Victoria’s most vulnerable children out of harms way. Luke Donnellan MP Shadow minister for child safety


THE CARBON tax, which I am against, has raised a heap of publicity. A vital missing link in the argument for the tax is any scrap of proof for rising sea levels due to heavy industrial evolution over the past 70 years. Those who believe in the link are only looking into their computers. I was recently told that the low tide level in Tasmania where the first convicts landed is now lower. My lifetime in outdoor work, including as a professional fisherman and over 27 years as a member of the former Torquay Public Reserves, led to my own observation of the seas based on an offshore reef exposed at low tide. I never waste my time with the TV, computer or radio etcetera, much preferring to spend my time in my garden or shed. As an added interest, 97 per cent of all water on Earth is salty. Of the three per cent that is fresh water, four-fifths are frozen solid. What increase in sea levels would there be if the frozen freshwater melted and ran to sea? Cliff Winkler Torquay

Crisis of the elites I HAVE a growing sense that the economic crisis is in fact a crisis. Why? In essence, the elephant in the room here is the true nature of the crisis. What world leaders will never admit is that the underlying cause is more moral than economic. What is not being openly debated is the nexus between the four pillars, or primacies, of a robust society: the moral, social, economic and political orders. If we drilled down from this premise, we would soon uncover the huge and unsustainable economic cost of the breakdown of our moral and social order. The secular, liberal political elites, whose agenda has driven this collapse since the 1960s, can never and will never admit to their folly. However, the axiom that what can’t happen won’t happen will in short order become increasingly apparent, in my judgement. I sincerely hope I am wrong even though we really are now at the stage of needing to print money to sustain the welfare state. Brian Handley Geelong

Secrecy stinks BARWON Water has started construction on a new sewage pumping station in Torquay north of Spring Creek.

I know this because trenches and trucks have suddenly appeared in the area where they have roughly said it will be built. I’d like to be able to tell you more about this pumping station but getting information out of Barwon Water about its proposed size, location, noise, smell and environmental impacts has proven near impossible. Why does Barwon Water have to act so secretly about building a poo pumping station in Torquay? They are acting more like the CIA then a sewerage authority! John Foss Torquay

Basin cuts UNLESS the Murray Basin Authority can extend its terms of reference it will remain cast between a rock and a hard place. Consistent, adequate flows into South Australia remain the effective end-game yet it’s doubtful a SA High Court challenge to anything less than 4000GL would ultimately gain a benefit given state parochialism, water piracy and a Gillard Government dependent on Greens’ and independents’ support. For legitimate stakeholders to share a finite resource, why can’t a portion of the remaining Howard Government $10 billion allocation to the basin be used to harness monsoonal runoff that could be piped into the river system?

Go public on fluoride BARWON Water has had publicity regularly over the past few weeks extolling all the virtues of our water supplies. Information about the source of the chemicals, fluoride in particular, has not been as forthcoming. Has there been any investigation into fluoridation’s impact on the physical and mental health of our population given that anger, violence, health issues and skin problems are much more prevalent in our area these days? Could this be contributed to by more water chemicals, air pollution et cetera than we have experienced in the past? Pricilla Wright Newtown

community update

Welcome to our column in the Geelong Independent where we report on some of the recent activities within our business.

2011 National Disability Awards Business Award, recognising the organisation’s long term partnership with Karingal. Karingal’s Kommercial branch works with Alcoa to improve access to meaningful work and training for people with a disability. The Alcoa-Karingal partnership represents an evolution in the process to create employment opportunities in an industrial manufacturing setting. The National Disability Awards are part of the Australian Government’s celebration of International Day of People with Disability, held on 3 December. Prime Minister Julia Gillard, Deputy Prime Minister and Treasurer Wayne Swan and Minister for Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs, Jenny Macklin presented the awards at a gala dinner at Parliament House last night. Over 400 individuals and organisations were nominated across seven

award categories. Point Henry was nominated for its ongoing partnership with Karingal, a not-for profit organisation that manages residential, respite, homebased and day programs for people with disabilities and their families. Karingal also operates an employment services division, including supported, disability and open employment services in Geelong, Melbourne and regional Victoria. Alcoa Point Henry Smelter Operations Manager Stewart Esdale expressed his thanks, “ We feel humbled in the company of so many wonderful people and organisations nominated for these important awards.”

“It is an honour to be part of the process that ensures our colleagues with disabilities have every opportunity to experience a positive work life, and we could not have done it without our partners, Karingal’s Kommercial branch,” said Stewart. Karingal’s Chief Executive Officer, Daryl Starkey said that their partnership with Alcoa Point Henry has enabled people with disabilities to participate in their communities in ways in which all citizens should be able to.

Summer Workplace Big Day Out With the end of the year in sight, and a few teasers of summer weather during November, the first day in December was a perfect time to celebrate Geelong’s business and community partnerships at the Summer Workplace Big Day Out (WBDO). Organised by Baclinks and hosted by Adventure Park on the Bellarine Peninsula, the WBDO allows people with disabilities from various agencies to join employee volunteers from the business sector for a fun day of activities in a fully supported environment. This premier local event is held twice a year

(summer & winter) and is designed to introduce businesses, and their employees, to the business and social potential of employee volunteering, in-kind support and other businesscommunity partnerships. These partnerships strengthen our community in many ways and encourage local economic growth and social cohesion. With something for everyone in the long list of activities, participants played bocce, soccer, and cricket and even took some karate training before a barbeque lunch, provided by the Highton Rotary Club. After lunch it was time to take advantage of the water slides, and then dance the day away in the disco. Coordinating participation and stewarding crowds throughout the day, six Alcoans volunteered their time to share in the fun. Alcoa Manufacturing Specialist Ray Sellars said, “For me personally, this was an extremely good day, a rewarding day.” Ray described the fantastic manner in which the volunteers were supplied with guidance about the plan for the day, as well as some take home lessons on communications and teamwork given by Karingal Adventure Based Learning Experiences (KABLE). “This was my first time at the Summer Workplace Big Day Out, and I can’t wait for next year!” Ray said.

“In March, Australia’s favourite baritone returns when Donald Cant takes to the stage with a brilliant collection of new songs and old favourites, while audiences will swoon in April as Simon Gallaher sings The Great Composers; the consum-

mate performer paying tribute to the greatest composers of the 20th century.” Smith said Gaslight Christmas would complete the 2011 series in the performing arts centre’s Playhouse Theatre next Wednesday and Thursday.

BY ERIN PEARSON SPEADING Christmas cheer is more than just caroling for stage show producer Chris McKenna. The festive season has more to do with making people chuckle and sing along with the cast of his Melbourne-based company, Gaslight. The touring troupe will visit Geelong this month to perform its new show, Gaslight Christmas. McKenna said the performance would combine traditional carols and contemporary Christmas songs “spiced” with humour. “It’s a 100 per cent Christmas morning music,” he enthused. “We love this time of the year. The seniors market that comes to the shows is the best crowd to play to. “It’s going to be a great wind up to another successful year at Geelong Performing Arts Centre.” Gaslight Company was the first group to perform for Geelong’s Morning Melody series, aimed to providing traditional sing-along-type entertainment for the region’s ranks of elderly residents. McKenna said the group was looking forward to helping close the year with Christmas cheer. “Geelong was the first arts centre outside Melbourne Concert Hall to ever start Musical Melodies and it was an instant success,” he said. “We’re just as excited now to be part of the program as we were back when it started. “The audiences keep us coming back

Curlewis club on course to put cinema back in great outdoors BY ERIN PEARSON PICTURES and picnic rugs will combine for a family evening at Curlewis Golf Club next weekend. Club manager Mathew Loughnane said he would bring old-time fun back into fashion with an outdoor cinema night. Loughnane said the idea to host an outdoor cinema evening in Geelong came from a trip to the Northern Hemisphere. “While I was over in America earlier in the year I saw quite a few outdoor cinema events and they were huge over there,” he said.

“I thought it would be a great idea to have an outdoor cinema with Santa and entertainment where our members and people from the public could come and have fun.” Loughnane said the venue could cater for a few hundred movie buffs. “We’ll be showing kids’ movie Despicable Me, which the adults will love as well. Just bring along a picnic blanket and enjoy a family night out.” Loughnane said a jumping castle and visit from Santa Claus would complete the picture to make the evening a real family affair.

“We really wanted to build a family environment here and offer a unique entertainment option,” he said. “An outdoor cinema is the perfect option for the Australian weather and we hope to run it again around the same time next year. “Kids and parents can come along dressed in their reindeer antlers or Santa hats and enjoy themselves in a safe and beautiful environment.” The outdoor cinema night will begin 7pm on December 17. Tickets are $5 for adults and admissions is free for children. 1016527-KS49-11

Coastal carols all about kids BY ERIN PEARSON CUTE kids, carols and all things Christmas will light up Torquay’s foreshore this weekend thanks to a bunch of budding young musicians, according to organisers. Torquay Carols by the Sea organiser Chris Rowney said staff expected “a few hundred” people would attend the show, an initiative of the town’s combined churches. Rowney said volunteers would have their “fingers and toes” crossed for nice weather as they helped sing in the festive season. “It’s a fun thing that isn’t commercial and that’s a real attraction for families,” he said. “It’s about coming out with your picnic rug, getting a candle or glow stick and building family memories. “We’ll have The Salvation Army band, local school groups and various choirs singing all your favorite Christmas carols.” Rowney said guest performer Cameron Semmens would add a touch of poetry to this year’s event. “Cameron will tell the Christmas story in a poem that will be filled with humour and thought-provoking bits.” Salvation Army music coordinator Lyndel Berris said her group of preschool children was “bursting at the seams” to shine on stage. The children, all aged under five, were participants in Salvos music program Mainly Music, Berris said. The children were spending the week learning the festive lyrics ahead of their moment on stage. “We have about 90 kids across our program and we hope more than half will be able to perform on the night,” Berris said. “The carols are a real community event and a great way for kids to get involved in Christmas.” Berris said the Salvos group of children would sing traditional Christmas favorites Away in a Manger, Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer and We Wish You A

and enjoy it.” Other performances will include groups from Torquay College, St Therese Primary School and churches. Torquay Carols by the Sea begins 7.30pm Saturday at Torquay’s Elephant Walk, on The Esplanade near the end of Gilbert St.

akington St’s Winter’s Cafe has been cooking up a storm since new owners took over in May. Matt Connell, 25 and Andrew Steere, 30, are proud of the “young, fresh” vibe they have injected into the Newtown cafe. “I think what sets us apart is our young and dynamic team and that we emphasise fresh, local and seasonal produce,” Matt says. “We are yes people, not no people, and are very passionate about the industry.” A huge drawcard for many Winter’s regulars is the fantastic all-day breakfast. Other favourite dishes include

P

pork belly baguette and housemade banana bread. Matt says the cafe continually changes its menu depending on the season and availability of produce. “We regularly rotate our specials and always have something fresh and healthy available. Our aim is to provide contemporary and exciting food backed with great customer service.” The cafe’s modern, fast-paced atmosphere has proved so popular that Matt recommends booking in advance for weekends. “Our recent achievements in the Golden Plate Awards have really boosted business,” he says.

Alfresco and sit-down dining areas can accommodate up to 70 people, while takeaways are also available. The cafe provides catering and functions for large or small groups either upstairs or downstairs. “We like to appeal to every one of all age groups,” Matt says. Matt and Andrew have simply re-branded the cafe without changing its name. “As the cafe already had a good reputation, to bring the business up to speed we changed the logo, did a complete refit of the interior and modernised the menu,” Matt says.

Corio market pulls crowds nyone looking for last minute Christmas gifts should head to Beckley Park’s community market. Geelong Greyhound Racing Club general manager Daniel Salter says the regular Saturday market is very popular. “It’s well-established with anywhere between 120 and 150 stalls on a good weekend,” he says. Whether it is jewellery, plants, garden tools, clothes, toys, electronics or fruit and vegetables, Beckley Park’s market is sure to have something for everyone. Daniel says it’s particularly popular with families. The added feature of greyhound racing trails on the track every Saturday morning provides added entertainment for children. “All the local trainers from around Geelong and district come and give their dogs a bit of practice. The kids

A

can come and watch them running around,” Daniel says. A special Friday market will be open prior to Christmas. Daniel recommends shoppers attend on the afternoon of Friday, December 23, then stay for the Greyhound racing at night. “It’ll be a great opportunity for people to come and get some Christmas presents and do their fruit and vegetable shopping at the same time. Then they can stay and watch the greyhound races.” The market has both regular stalls and others changing week to week. “It’s both indoor and outdoor,” Daniel says. “We have a couple of big sheds full of stall holders and stalls out on the road as well. “Fruit and vegetables are probably the biggest component and they are at better prices than you could get elsewhere.”

Caring comes first for MACS eelong’s only multicultural aged care organisation has won two prestigious national awards for its staff education and training program. Multicultural Aged Care Services (MACS) won a Better Practice Award for Learning for Life, a sustainable education and training program for all staff focused on improving services for residents. The Aged Care Standards and Accreditation Agency, the organisation that also regulates Commonwealth Government accreditation of residential aged care facilities, announced the award. MACS also took out a highly commended citation in the 2011 Aged Care Association Australia Employer of Choice awards. MACS Board president Jordan Mavros says the awards reflect the organisation’s emphasis on resident care. “We were really pleased to receive these awards, because it means our organisation and staff have

been recognised as putting our residents first. “It’s a significant endorsement of the practices we believe we put into place on a daily basis.” The Learning for Life program aims to improve knowledge and skills for MACS and its staff development program. MACS chief executive officer Joy Leggo says the program builds on individual expertise and engenders loyalty. “Cultural diversity among staff is fostered and valued at MACS and is important for the delivery of care to residents. “We made the program as accessible and nonthreatening as possible, particularly for those with English as a second language.” Mrs Leggo says the MACS team has achieved more than 130 qualifications since 2006, with the program contributing to staff morale and retention.

Benefits in spouses doing splits BY GREG CRAWFORD, M.A.P FINANCIAL SOLUTIONS t has been possible for some years now for spouses to split the net superannuation contributions on an annual basis, including employer and salary sacrifice contributions. For some the benefit may simply be to even up balances between a couple particularly

approaching retirement. But the main benefit is the potential to get access to the funds sooner. This situation can arise when funds are transferred to the partner that will meet a superannuation condition of release earlier. This might be due to that partner being retired already or expected to retire earlier, for example, a spouse who is not working and reaching age 55.

Another benefit is where one member of a couple is reaching the age of eligibility for the Centrelink age pension earlier than the other partner. It is generally a financial advantage for the person not yet of pension age to maximise funds in superannuation accumulation phase. For more information phone M.A.P Financial Solutions on 5229 0200.

SHOPPING CENTRE

523926-KS26-11

Wrap up shopping at Waurn Ponds aurn Ponds Shopping Centre makes shopping effortless this Christmas. Open to 9pm next Thursday, the centre is extending its trading hours up to December 23. Target will also be open later than usual, trading to midnight between December 20 and 23 for all shoppersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; last-minute Christmas needs. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, this year at Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre kids can have professional Santa photos taken for free. Shoppers simply have to spend $25 or more in one transaction at any specialty store in the centre and take their receipt to the Santa photo site outside of Target to receive two free photos. Terms and conditions are available at the Santa site or www.waurnpondssc.com.au. To make Christmas preparations even easier, a Relay for Life gift wrapping station will be outside Target between 11am and 4pm from this Saturday until December 24. The staff will wrap all presents for the price of a gold coin donation per gift. Cancer Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Relay For Life is more than just a fundraiser, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an opportunity to get together with the community to celebrate cancer survivors, remember loved ones lost and to fight back against a disease that takes too much. Relay for Life is the largest fundraising event in support of the council to reduce the impact of cancer on communities. Barb Ward has been involved with the Geelong Relay for Life event for the past six years. The Geelong event has raised

W

over $3 million in vital funds for the Cancer Council since its inception in 2000. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nearly everyone we know has been touched by cancer and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incredibly liberating to know we can make a difference,â&#x20AC;? Barb says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every five minutes another Australian is diagnosed with cancer and every year there are 1186 people diagnosed with this disease in Geelong alone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While survival rates are improving every day, cancer remains a leading cause of death. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so important that we raise funds to fight it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every dollar we raise from gift wrapping this Christmas at Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre will contribute to fundraising for the main Relay for Life event next March.â&#x20AC;? Relay for Lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Geelong event will be held on March 17 and 18 at Deakin Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Waurn Ponds Campus. Proceeds from the relay and other initiatives throughout the year help the Cancer Council to investigate new ways to prevent, detect and treat cancers, educate communities about ways they can reduce their risk, advocate for control and support people during their times of greatest need. More information about Relay For Life is available at the gift wrap station, by phoning Cancer Council Victoria on 9635 5000 or visiting www.relayforlife.org.au Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre is at 173-199 Pioneer Rd, phone 5244 2580, email info@waurnpondssc.com.au or visit waurnpondssc.com.au.

Sleek: Styling of the Volvo C30 T5 R-Design hot hatch appeals to those who like a mixture of sportiness and elegance.

Sporty volvo BY ERIC BLAIR olvo’s C30 coupe harks back to the days when Volvos were at the cutting edge in image and sportiness. It’s very much a hot hatch as a threedoor coupe with a rear end that’s reminiscent of the Volvo P1800 ES (Estate Sport) of the 1970s. This sporty little Volvo comes with an interesting blend of tradition and innovation in its styling. The low, wide grille clearly identifies C30 as a Volvo while in profile it has a fashionably modern sloping roofline. However it is the radical styling of the rear of the car that will be the major talking point. The rear is dominated by a large glass tail-

V

gate fringed by long vertical taillights that taper up to the roof and is like nothing else on the road. The C30 DRIVe coupe is designed to squeeze as much as possible from every litre of diesel fuel to keep CO2 emissions below 100 grams per kilometre. Volvo C30 DRIVe has a 1.6litre turbo-diesel engine that produces 80 kW of power and 240 Nm of torque. The engine features a stop-start system that turns it off when the car is stationary. That’s so the air-conditioning still works. When braking and/or decelerating the C30’s battery is recharged, a micro-hybrid function that takes some of the load

from the engine-driven alternator. Though the body of the Volvo C30 DRIVe looks the same as that of the rest of the C30 range there are quite a few changes to make it slip more easily through the air. The most obvious are the alloy wheels with their flat design to reduce turbulence. The wheels carry special low-rolling resistance tyres from Michelin. There are small air deflectors ahead of the front wheels and another deflector behind the radiator that smooths the flow of air through the engine compartment. Underbody fairings calm the airflow beneath the car to complement the over-car aerodynamic shape.

bring it close to $20,000 – Accent is no longer a bargain basement model. All models have Bluetooth connectivity, USB and Aux in the audio system, with steering wheel controls. Safety equipment levels are high with all models coming with the maximum five-star ANCAP safety rating. As well as six airbags there’s ABS brakes with Electronic Brake Force Distribution (EBD), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Traction Control System (TCS) and Hyundai’s Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system including a Motor Driven Power Steering (MPDS) system. Accent Elite is likely to be the biggest seller thanks to having 16-inch alloy wheels rather than the 14-inch steel units on the Active. The Accent Premium tops off the lineup with climate-controlled air, simulated leather trim, parking assist that includes a reversing camera, and a different design of 16-inch alloy wheels to the Elite. All Accents are powered by the same 1.6-litre petrol engine that generates up to 91 kW of power and 156 Nm of torque. A new direct-injection petrol engine and a diesel are understood to be coming. Fuel consumption is rated at a very impressive 6.0 litres per 100 kilometres with the manual gearbox and 6.4 L/100 km with the auto.

BY ERIC BLAIR yundai Accent replaced the Excel in Australia in June 2000, but didn’t achieve the outstanding sales success of that model. That was partly due to a price rise, but the biggest hassle from the Accent’s point of view was its smaller brother, the Hyundai Getz which replaced it as the Korean company’s entry-level model. Getz has now been replaced by the more expensive i20 and an all-new Accent, released earlier this year, is already grabbing plenty of attention from buyers. Available as either a five-door hatch or four-door sedan, styling of the Accent is bang up to date featuring Hyundai’s new Fluid Sculpture (to use Hyundai’s name) design that we just love in big brother Hyundai i45. From the big radiator grille and huge headlights, over the domed roof and into the neat tail it all works brilliantly from a visual point of view. Interior space is surprisingly good for a car with fairly modest dimensions. The engine is so quiet at idle that it might almost have stopped altogether. Combine that with materials of a high quality and a good level of finish and you get a lot of car for your money. Mind you, with a starting price of $16,990 – plus on road costs that will

intMaster now offers a pick-up-and-delivery service for customers installing its new wonder product, Ultra Carbon. TintMasterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dave Kershaw says Ultra Carbon is the next generation in car window tint. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re too busy, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll pick up your car, install the tint and deliver your vehicle back to you. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just part of the great service to Geelong and suburbs that we offer at TintMaster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our experienced and highly qualified tint technicians will professionally install Ultra Carbon on your car in our modern, purpose-built workshop.â&#x20AC;? Dave says Ultra Carbon offers enhanced appearance, performance and protection unmatched by any other product. Its non-metal, nano-hybrid carbon technology combines the popular low-reflective black-type finish of conventional carbon films with superior infrared heat and UV rejection only previously possible with metallic films. Dave says Ultra Carbon provides exceptional optical clarity together with signal-enabling technology eliminating interference for mobile phone, radio and GPS operation. Ultra Carbon also comes with a full lifetime warranty. The TintMaster range includes almost-clear films for drivers preferring a lighter window that still keeps out heat and UV rays. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you want the best look for your car, the best protection for your family and the best value for money, see TintMaster,â&#x20AC;? Dave says. TintMaster is at 9 Gordon Avenue, Geelong West. For more information phone TintMaster on 5221 8877.

ouch Up Guys knows that customers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the time to drive around looking for quality bumper repairs. So the Touch Up Guys go to customersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; homes or workplaces to provide on-the-spot service and repairs. Anyone selling their car or just keen to keep it in great condition can benefit from calling the Touch Up Guys. Whether the kids have borrowed the family car and left a nice mark on the bumper or for any other damage, the guys can help with their services to renew the appearance of customersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; vehicles. Average repair time is between one and three hours, with most basic repairs costing less than the usual insurance excess. Customers also have the confidence of a set price before the work starts, meaning no nasty surprises at the end of the job. Established 1991 with more than 100 vans Australia wide, the Touch Up Guys has been operating in Geelong for 15 years. The guys specialise in high quality repairs, using quality two-pack paint. The mobile service can make and match more than 55,000 automotive colours on site. EFTPOS facilities for Visa, MasterCard and debit cards are available for customersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; convenience. Touch Up Guys services include: â&#x20AC;˘ repair and re-spraying bumpers, mirrors, mag wheels, door and body moulds; â&#x20AC;˘ restoring sun affected, yellowed, headlights; â&#x20AC;˘ cut and polish; and â&#x20AC;˘ repairs to minor scratches and stone chips to tidy up major panels. Touch Up Guys can also fit reversing sensors, which help prevent minor accidents and even tragedies when children are unseen behind vehicles.

sport Gutsy Cat resurgence Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE At 5/213 Joeys was staring down the barrel of not only the game slipping away but perhaps their season as well. Just in time, Walerys stepped up to the plate once again to rip through the Swans lower order and dismiss the hosts for 231. Joeys had nine overs at the crease and wiped 20 runs off the deficit for the loss of one wicket to leave this game very evenly poised. If St Joseph’s solid middle order gets given a good platform to work with it should be able to get the job done. In division two Thomson made a mockery of its match of the round against Alexander Thomson, dismissing the Vikings for a paltry 87 in just 45 overs. Veteran Adrian Saltalamacchia took four wickets, while Jayden Hicks claimed three. Aaron Sarah at least showed some ticker batting at number 11 to score 17 in a 23-run last-wicket stand. In reply, the Tigers cruised to first innings points finishing at 4/100 and well placed to push for maximum points tomorrow. In division three, Lethbridge put together a big first innings total against Winchelsea last week. Nath Broster was the star for Lethbridge with an undefeated century., while Matt Partridge took three wickets for Winch. This weekend will determine whether Winchelsea can still be considered a genuine premiership chance.

Two good: Dean Fiddes with a 5kg snapper taken on the troll from Corio Bay and Logan Attard with his brown trout from Lake Elingamite.

Anglers overcome difficulties for big fish DIFFICULT conditions in the past week prevented many anglers from wetting a line but the hardy few managed outstanding captures. Salmon remained a viable option from the rock platforms between Eastern View and Lorne, with lures taking fish better than 2kg. The rocks in front of the Lorne hospital produced almost 40 fish for Peter Sharp in a red-hot morning session. Peter’s fish all took a liking to his Braid Marauder lures. Graeme Johansen also found the salmon near Lorne. Fishing the rocks at Stony Creek, Graeme returned with over a dozen fish on lures, with his best salmon estimated at 3kg. I found salmon at Cinema Point. Conditions were less than ideal but fish over 2kg were still available, with lure again the best method. Anglers seeking to catch snapper from the surf after this heavy blow should try Black Rock. Fish to 1kg should be available, with squid the recommended bait. Salmon continued to be caught inside Swan Bay, with many are pushing over 1.5kg and readily taking either bait or lure. The same location also rewarded anglers with whiting and good numbers of squid. Daniel West fished soft plastics in the Queenscliff cut for a nice bag of silver trevally. Turtleback worms in the Pumpkin Green colour accounted for Daniel’s 13 fish, half of which weighed over 1kg. Daniel said the run-up to high tide produced all the action. Squid numbers continued to be high on the shallow grass beds between Queenscliff and Clifton Springs.

BRIAN LONG Successful anglers have been using small, natural coloured jigs. Steve McGrath fished for the squid from the shore at Hermsley where just on and after dark he caught 10 on size 2.5 Yamashita Jigs in the Grass Whiting colour. Snapper captures were down, which was to be expected given the rugged conditions. However, the hardy few managed to scored some outstanding results. Paul Hunt fished Wilson Spit twice to land his bag limit of big fish both times. Paul was rightly was impressed with his biggest fish, which weighed 9.7kg. Paul said he caught all his fish on pilchards. Soft plastics anglers found good numbers of fish on the outer-harbour spoil grounds, taking snapper to 55cm but averaging 35cm. Pike over 1m and flathead pushing better than 1kg were also caught. A variety of lures was working but Gulp minnows and Turtleback worms were clearly the best choice. The same location also produced reasonable numbers of squid. Flathead reports increased. Numbers of small fish were taken from the deep water but the shallows have been producing

consistent captures of big fish. Paul Heath landed two rock flathead better than 2kg each from the shore near Pelican Shores Caravan Park. Nathan Fitzgerald cast soft plastics from Geelong’s waterfront for a mixed bag. Nathan found bream, trevally and snapper holding up under the moored boats at Fisherman’s Pier, with fishing after dark improving his success rate. Ocean Grove’s Dean Fiddes has successfully embraced the technique of trolling for snapper. During his latest outing on the bay his first snapper was a respectable 2kg but Dean persevered in just over 6m of water to catch another of 5kg. In freshwater, young Logan Attard fished with dad Danyel to land his first brown trout, whopper of more than 2.3kg. The pair fished Lake Elingamite where they landed a number of smaller fish while trolling Tassie Devils. Harrison West got into the action on Deep Lake, catching three rainbow trout to 2.1kg on Rapala X Rap minnows. Harrison found the fish most active from mid-morning until mid-afternoon. Brian McConnell reported that redfin started firing at Lake Eildon. Brian fished just a few hundred metres from the boat ramp at the Lake Side camping area with soft plastics to take any number of fish, the best around 1kg. Readers should be aware time is running out to send in photo entries for the Asari kayak fishing package to be given away for Christmas. Send photos and reports including fishing package entries to info@raylongtackle.com.au or visit Brian at Ray Long’s Fishing World, 105 Shannon Ave, Manifold Heights.

GEELONG Cricket Club had one of its best results in years last week when it gutsed out an important win against Essendon. The Cats won the toss and asked their hosts to bat first, a decision that looked like a massive backfire when the Bombers cruised to 70 runs without loss. But spin twins Luke Muller and Jeremy Hart struck with three quick wickets, putting Geelong back on top. The duo combined to rip through the highly fancied Essendon line up before Marc Carson finished off the tail to dismiss the home team for 182. Hart finished with 5/70, while Muller did his bet with 2/36 from 20 overs. In reply, opener Alex Stanley opened up the batting but was quickly off the ground with cracked ribs and sent to hospital. Meyrick Buchanan and Tom Elliott steadied the ship but at 5/117 the match was in the balance. Jacob Thorne stood up and scored a fine half century, with good support firstly from Sam Scannell and also from the heroic Stanley who returned in significant pain to see his side not only win but keep its season alive. This weekend Geelong plays a Saturday/Sunday two-day game against Ringwood. A win would see the Cats right back in the hunt but a loss would undo all of the good work of last week, a result that Alex Stanley’s teammates should be determined to avoid. Geelong Cricket Association division one match of the round between South Barwon and St Joseph’s is evenly poised going into the second day’s play. Day one was a day of two halves as the Swans dominated the first session thanks mainly to Joel Davies who put aside the loss of two early wickets to Trent Walerys to peel off a magnificent 140 runs, ably supported by Clinton Peake with 37.
