SuperKidz Jasmine and Monique ‘having a go’ BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN FOR JASMINE and Monique King, the chance to ride their bikes, go for a swim and have a run along the foreshore is always fun. So they were especially chuffed when dad Danny entered them in the Geelong Independent SuperKidz Triathlon. “They really like the idea of getting a medal,” Danny said. “But they just love getting out and

about, love riding their bikes and swimming, so doing it in an event like this has them pretty excited.” Nine-year-old Jasmine will participate in the seven-to-10-year age group, while Monique, eight, will have dad along for company in the Family Wave section. The Family Wave allows under-13 children to participate with a family member. The kids-only version of the Geelong Triathlon features short,

achievable distances based on participation and fun. “The Family Wave is ideal because it allows me to accompany Monique and get her used to events like this,” Danny said. “It’s a great way to get kids involved. They’ve been doing little runs and bike rides around the neighbourhood. “We even swam the course, so they’re prepared, familiar with it and it

will be a bit more comfortable for them. “It’s a good, fun event and it’s good to be part of it. It’ll be a big weekend.” Danny said SuperKidz offered children an opportunity to take up triathlons in the future. “At least they have had a go and if it encourages them to get out and improve their swimming then it’s always a good thing.” SuperKidz entries are available online at geelongmultisport.com.au.

THOUSANDS of competitors and spectators will converge on Geelong’s waterfront next week for three days of sport and activity. And entries are still open for participants to test themselves in triathlon disciplines over various distances in the 2012 Geelong Multi Sport Festival. The multi sport festival returns to the city from Friday, February 10 to Sunday, February 12 after a successful debut in 2011. Event organisers USM Events is excited to deliver three days of sport and community activities to the region with something for everyone. This year’s festival is helping raise money for Give Where You Live, a not-for-profit community organisation providing financial support to over 70 local human health and care agencies. The festival’s wide range of cycling, running and swimming events means competitors of all standards and ages can participate in the multi sports festival. Competition covers fun run/walks, minitriathlons, triathlon relay teams and an ocean swim through to a range of free on-shore community activities. The Geelong Independent has signed on as a sponsor of the event. The Geelong Independent SuperKidz Triathlon on Saturday will give children aged seven to 13 a chance to compete individually, with friends or family. Each SuperKidz competitor will receive an event singlet, a finisher’s medallion, a bag of other goodies and have chances to win random draw prizes. Managing editor Tony Galpin said the Independent was thrilled to be involved. “The Independent is particularly happy to help get children outdoors and involved in sport.” In addition to Saturday’s festival events and showcase triathlons on the Sunday, the free community activities include a youth skate competition and clinics, a Steampacket Open Air Cinema, a petting zoo, a sport and lifestyle expo plus entertainment and other attractions. Anyone wanting to enter can use the festival’s secure online entry form available at the official website, www.geelongmultisport.com.au. Online entries close Wednesday, February 8. Entries can also be paid in person with cash on Saturday morning one hour before starting time. The community events are all free, so residents are invited to turn up whenever and how often they like. More information, including changed traffic conditions, are available at www.geelongmultisport.com.au.

eelong triathlete Peter Kerr is looking forward to competing against some of his fiercest rivals on home turf. He sees his home ground advantage as an opportunity to improve his International Triathlon Union ranking. Kerr will compete in Australian Elite Sprint Championships in an URBAN Geelong ITU Triathlon Premium Oceania Cup as part of the 2012 Geelong Multi Sport Festival. Kerr was recently selected in an under-23 World Triathlon Championships team after placing third in last year’s event. Chris ‘Macca’ McCormack, the 2010 World Ironman Champion, will spearhead the men’s field. Joining McCormack and Kerr will be a host of exciting young Australians including Brendan Sexton and Joel Tobin-White. The Elite Men’s race start is over a fast-paced sprint course comprising a 750m swim, a 20km bike ride and a 5km run. Kerr said the spectator friendly Geelong course was one of the best scenic venues on the series. “It’s fantastic to be able to race right there where I train daily. It’s an opportunity for friends and family to get along and give me some support – or maybe even some heckling from friends.

Residents fight charges up to $250,000

Down the drain BY MICHELLE HERBISON CHARGES of up to $250,000 for a drain have pitted Drysdale residents against council at Victoria’s planning tribunal. Drysdale Clifton Springs Community Association’s Patrick Hughes said many objectors were unable to pay the special charge scheme. “A lot of the people are selffunded retirees. For them, a sudden bill for ten grand is a real bolt from the blue,” Mr Hughes said. “The ones opposed to the scheme have lived there for

ICON CLOSES IN A ‘FLOOD’ PAGE 2

years and will maybe even spend their dying days there.” City of Greater Geelong initially informed residents around Central Rd almost two years ago that they would owe between $2000 and $250,000 per property for the drain to service a new retirement village. The Independent later revealed that some residents were considering selling their homes, fearing they would be unable to pay. Council voted to impose the special charge on 42 properties

last January despite 14 objections. City of Greater Geelong said retirement village developer Pinnacle Living would pay $348,829 toward the project, while council would contribute $65,884. Mr Hughes accused council of failing to consult residents on the special charge. “Whatever its outcome, the VCAT hearing will show that the council has been levying special charges on residents without any regard for their ability to pay and without providing any evidence

that residents will gain any benefits from them.” Portarlington’s Cheryl Hardy, the leader of the appeal to Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, declined to comment until after the hearing. The City’s Gary Van Driel said council had agreed after negotiations with property owners to only levy the charge when properties were sold or developed. Ward councillor Rod Macdonald said the land around Central Rd was “earmarked for

future development”. “The City has deemed the special charge necessary for current and future development of the area. Developable land with a drainage scheme is worth more than a property without a drainage scheme in place.” Cr Macdonald said existing owners could defer the charge if their properties remained undeveloped. “It is the vendors’ responsibility when they sell to come to an arrangement on the money that’s due.”

coordinator Julie Hyslop said the club would be welcome. “If they do want to become a part of the neighbourhood house I can’t really see any negatives.

ENTRIES for Geelong’s competition to find a landmark design have closed with a field of almost 80 submissions. Icon for Geelong’s organising committee will now begin sorting entries to shortlist the best for judging and coverage in the Geelong Independent, a competition sponsor. The paper’s managing editor, Tony Galpin, said dozens of entries arrived just in time for the deadline of Saturday. “I arrived at work on Monday morning to a flood of last-minute entries,” Mr Galpin said. “Obviously a lot of finishing touches were completed late last week.”

Mr Galpin said architects, graphic designers and artists were widely represented among entrants. “We also have plenty of submissions from everyday readers who were inspired to put forward their ideas for Geelong.” Mr Galpin said the Independent would present a special report on the best “and some interesting” entries in the next few weeks after the committee had completed its initial review. “We’ll also run stories on some of the feedback and general suggestions about an icon for Geelong.” Icon for Geelong seeks a design for a landmark structure or build-

ing of artistic merit to raise the city’s profile throughout the world. The competition carries a prize of $10,000 from Geelong’s Senia Lawyers. The winner will be revealed in March. Senia Lawyers principal Andrew Senia said the number and quality of entries was exciting. “Some entries are simply magnificent. They inspire recognition and prestige for our lovely city of Geelong. “I can see how the icon will enhance the image of Geelong, attract visitors and permanent residents to create business and jobs.”

Teacher, ex-student in ‘sex tape’ controversy BY ERIN PEARSON A GEELONG high school teacher is under investigation after appearing in a sex video with a former student. The controversy has sparked concerns about children across the region seeking out the internet footage. The Education Department confirmed it was investigating and would take “appropriate” action after “details are known”. The video, posted to an internet pornography site, showed the male teacher having sex with the 23-yearold female former student who was blindfolded in part of the footage. Oberon High School Principal

Alison Murphy said the English teacher was “not at school today”. Mrs Murphy was unable to say whether he would remain teaching at the school. Oberon was treating the controversy “very seriously”, she said. “I acted immediately when I was made aware of this matter, met with the teacher and contacted the department,” Mrs Murphy said. “As this matter is now being investigated, it is not appropriate for me to comment further.” Former classmates told the Independent the woman in the video was a “teacher’s pet” and “the quiet

type” while at Oberon. The video had shocked many of her former classmates, they said. Toni van Hamond, of youth mental health counselling service Headspace Barwon, was concerned about children across the region rushing to see the internet video. The site was easy to find on social media websites. “How do you explain to kids this isn’t funny,” Ms Hammond said. “If they’re concerned or upset I’d encourage them to talk to someone they trust, like a parent or adult, about what they’re seen or heard.” A website for rating teachers includ-

ed comments defending the teacher as “extremely committed” and the “coolest teacher ever”. A concerned mother, whose children attend Oberon, called for the teacher to be “stood down immediately”. The mother, who declined to be identified, feared the scandal would distract students from learning as they returned to school this week. “Something as serious as this is a breach of trust in a person you place your children’s education needs in. “I’m shocked and appalled by this news. “This teacher is responsible for the welfare of so many students.”

in brief Overpass smash RESCUE workers have spent 20 minutes cutting a man from the wreckage of a car after it smashed into an overpass on Geelong’s ring road. An SES spokesperson said the rescuers used Jaws of Life equipment to free the driver for a waiting ambulance at the Midland Hwy overpass on Monday.

Eren shadow VICTORIAN Labor has elevated Lara MP John Eren to the shadow ministry, with his porfolio yet to be decided. Mr Eren said he was pleased to be the Geelong region’s second shadow minister, with Bellarine MP Lisa Neville also on Labor’s state front bench.

Highton ambassador A HIGHTON athlete has earned a job as the first ambassador for an organisation working to prevent blindness in poor nations throughout the Asia Pacific region. Vision 2020 Australia said 2010 Winter Paralympics bronze medalist skier Jessica Gallagher, 25, would help raise awareness about the link between blindness and poverty.

Pier jobs A YARRA St Pier could create 400 Geelong jobs in its first decade, according to the city’s mayor. John Mitchell said a business case for the $33 million proposal found that the facility would return an almost threefold return on investment.

Fountain return HEAVY rain has left Geelong with an $80,000 bill to resume a water feature turned off in 2006 due to watering restrictions, according to council. Councillors voted this week to redirect funding to carry out works on the Lt Malop St feature including repairs to pumps and electrical equipment and relocating its switchboard “above-ground”.

Jobs plan A $160,000 grant will put up to 80 Geelong job seekers with mental illnesses in “open employment”, according to Federal Government. Member for Corio Richard Marles said the money would help pay for supported employment program Clearwater Business Services set up a “work crew” to help participants into jobs.

Beer babies GEELONG men will go to the pub for prenatal classes as part of a new Barwon Health program. A spokesperson said Beer + Bubs at Grovedale Hotel on March 27 would provide men with a range of advice including “what to say and what not to say during childbirth”.

Council to seek rezoning, sell land, despite ‘concern’ BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A STRIP of council and privately owned land sandwiched against Geelong’s ring road will be rezoned despite the concerns of utility providers and government departments. VicRoads, Environment Protection Authority, Corangamite Catchment Management Authority and SPI Ausnet raised concerns at the plan. But none objected, a report to council said. Council this week voted to rezone two hectares of a 5.5Ha site off Rollins Rd, Bell Post Hill.

All the land would be sold for residential development. “The submissions raised concerns regarding (road) access, sound attenuation measures and construction over easements,” the report said. The land was part of a former reserve now surplus for development of the ring road. Both properties were “encumbered with various easements” affecting any development, the report said. A powerline easement “entirely encumbered” the privately owned part of the site. Barwon Water’s Montpellier Lovely

Banks water main and easement ran through the southern part of the council land, while a fibre optic cable ran along the eastern boundary, the report said. A condition of the rezoning included retaining 1317 square metres for public open space. VicRoads’ submission said the organisaiton had no intention of building new road access to the site. VicRoads told council installation of any noise barriers would be at the cost of the developers. The EPA said any residential development would be “subject to some degree of noise” from the ring road.

Council might need to construct access roads and recommended that houses be “sound-proofed” instead of building a noise barrier, the report said. Preston Rowe Patterson property valuation consultant Stuart McDonald said the area had limited land suitable for development. “Areas similar to that have been developed. There’s a demand for residential land but the end product will be priced according to the noise and visual aspects of the site.” A 428sqm lot in Molloy Crt, Bell Post Hill, sold in December for $197,000.

Battle flares over Port ex-servo site BY MICHELLE HERBISON REVISED plans to build Portarlington’s biggest building for apartments and a café are just a “rehash” of a failed earlier proposal, according to objectors. Council has received 17 objections to the plan for a three-storey building on a former service station and garage site at 1 Newcombe St. Melbourne developer Glen Baird has proposed 11 apartments, 18 car parks and a café on the 1070-square-metre site. A council planning committee rejected a similar project for the block two years ago. Changes in the revised planning application include additional car parks, increased setbacks, fewer apartments and deletion of a previously proposed fourth storey. Objector Des Badrock’s submission to

council said the changes showed “no positive reaction”. “No serious attempt has been made to increase the car parking spaces in the basement and to suggest an increase of one car space should be acceptable is not a responsible answer.” Geoff Ewen said the plans clashed with the town’s character. “We don’t want the start of a mini Gold Coast with high-rise units,” his submission said. Keith and Margaret Davis likened the proposed apartments to “dumping Federation Square in front of us”. Other residents’ concerns included increased traffic, insufficient visitor parking, the building’s height and bulk and character conflicts with the neighbouring

residential area. Mr Baird said council should approve the building. “We’ve done everything council’s asked us to do, it’s very frustrating. “We just want to beautify the area and fix it up.” Mr Baird noted that other development proposals for Portarlington were also underway. “There are a lot of changes in Portarlington at the moment, so I think (the objectors) have got to really look at that. “I’m happy to meet them and go through their objections to try to get this thing off the ground. “It’s just disgusting at the moment, there are rats in the place. We just want to get this through so we can fix it up.”

“It’s only a matter of time before a child is hit and killed yet nobody wants to listen.” VicRoads said installing a signalled crossing would cost about $900,000.

1021074-KC5-12

BY ERIN PEARSON SCHOOL children are risking their lives crossing a busy intersection without traffic lights to reach nearby schools, according to a Belmont resident. Brad Moore called for lights at the intersection of Torquay Rd and Kidman Ave as students returned to school this week. Mr Moore said students had been risking their lives for years at the intersection instead of walking a “few hundred metres” south to a signaled crossing. Mr Moore said he had petitioned State Government and council for action but authorities failed to recognise the safety threat. He had seen cars either hit or narrowly miss “hundreds” of children at the intersection over the past decade. “Buses drop kids off each school morning at the T-intersection, which is a long way from the traffic light crossing, meaning the kids just walk straight across unsafely. About 900 kids go to high school and primary school in the area and there are near misses every day.

Dry summer continues in January

fortywinks.com.au

4D

JANUARY ended with Geelong’s summer continuing to be drier than usual. However, January also featured a wide variation in rain totals across the city. The city’s racecourse weather station recorded 32.6mm, which was below the 37.3mm average recorded at the previous official Geelong site at Mt Duneed. Most of the southern suburbs fared worse, with Belmont, Grovedale, Waurn Ponds and Mt Duneed only totalling from 11mm to 20mm for the month. In contrast, some northern suburbs were above average, with Bell Post Hill recording 45mm. In another contrast, the You Yangs, which are in a well-attested rain shadow, only received 4.5mm. Most of January’s rain was recorded on only two days, by 9am on January 8 and 31. West Barwon Reservoir and much of the rest of the Otways received average to above-average rain. The result was our water storages holding 79.9 per cent capacity at the end of the month, a great

consolation for this time of the year. January’s average daily maximum was 26C and the minimum was 15.1C. Allowing for the site difference, Geelong’s January temperatures were about 1C warmer than the average at the former airport site. Seven days were over 30C, compared to a monthly average of five such days. The maximum temperature was 41.8C on January 2, while the highest overnight minimum was 21.9C on January 30. Minor flash flooding was reported in several locations on January 8.

kinder project BY MICHELLE HERBISON PLANS to build a kindergarten on parkland are bad for Barwon Heads, residents told a council meeting this week. Councillors voted in favour of the $3.67 Village Park kindergarten plan in Geelong Rd despite residents’ concerns. Karen Howie said council failed to consult widely enough on the preferred site. “The kinder community has been consulted extensively but nobody else has.” Ruth Lee wanted a new kindergarten but also opposed the site. “We do not think park land should be taken away from the community when another site is

available.” Russell Mitton asked council to consider Barwon Heads’ community garden land. “The community arts garden is already a hub for mothers.” Cr Jan Farrell raised questions over council choosing the site while a master plan for the park was incomplete. “It doesn’t seem clear that the community garden site is not worthy of discussion. “The limits of people to appeal and take this to VCAT will be very much limited because the master plan is still in progress. The normal process is that one process should finish and the next should start but this hasn’t been

taken to the broader community.” Cr Andy Richards said Cr Farrell was “incorrect”. He pointed to plans for a children’s hub on open space in Cr Farrell’s Ocean Grove ward without the facility appearing on the space’s master plan. “An open space process has nothing to do with VCAT and there are no guidelines in running dual processes around a master plan and a kindergarten.” Cr Richards said residents would have an opportunity to make submissions. “The park at this stage appears to be a better site due to its morecentral nature to the town for walk-ability.”

BY ERIN PEARSON WHEN Aaron Salta’s mates told him he couldn’t skateboard across the Nullarbor he did what any 30year-old male would do. Begin drawing up a plan to prove them wrong. The Geelong musician plans to leave the city in March on a quest to skate the 2000km across the inhospitable Nullarbor Plain. He will use the journey to raise $10,000 for mental health. Mr Salta said he was ready to hit the long road on his outback adventure after two years of planning. “About two years ago the idea went though my head after a few beers at the Nash one Wednesday night and I said it kind of jokingly. “Then within a week I’d done some research and realised it was possible. “When I first came up with the idea the negativity people gave me was why I wanted to do it. No one thought I could do it. “I’ve always been the kind of guy to throw myself into a challenge.” Mr Salta said he used music to cope as he battled depression for two years. The Nullarbor attempt would help him with the success of his recovery with other Australians, he said.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG’S Australian Animal Health Laboratory is testing a virus that prompted a ban on racing pigeons in the region, according to a Department of Primary Industry spokesman. “We’re working with AAHL where the birds are tested to see if they have the virus,” the spokesman said. He revealed the department had applied to federal authorities for permission to import a vaccine to treat the pigeon population. A department order has banned all local pigeon and homing club activity. Geelong City Homing Club’s Morry Iacovella said it was the first time the virus had entered Australia. “Everything is at a standstill. There’s no movement of birds unless you have weekly vet

checks and reports to DPI. “I haven’t been able to use my white doves and pigeons for weddings. People have been disappointed but I just can’t do it. “Even though there are no local cases yet we’re not allowed to take the birds off the property. “It has shut down all the competitions, racing events and bird showing.” Mr Iacovella feared the ban could send people out of the sport. “People are being negative about it, especially if they face the extra expense of treatment. “It could be an expensive process to treat all our birds. This virus is here to stay, I believe.” Mr Iacovella said paramyxovirus, or PMV1, affected birds’ brains and had a high mortality rate. “Not everyone who has pigeons is involved with a club and they

might not even know. “There are still people selling pigeons in classified advertisements.” Australia’s chief vet Dr Mark Schipp said he was worried the deadly pigeon virus could mutate to chickens. Authorities believed the virus was introduced to Australia last year through smuggled pigeons, he said. “How long it would take to adapt to other species of bird is very difficult to determine and we’ve commenced work in a laboratory setting to look into that.” The DPI spokesperson said the disease was so far restricted to hobby and feral pigeons. “Virulent strains of paramyxovirus are capable of infecting poultry. However, evidence suggests chickens are not susceptible to the specific strain circulating.”

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A CHARITY using horse riding to help Geelong children with disabilities is “desperately” seeking volunteers to cope with a doubling in demand, according to members. They said Riding for the Disabled Barwon Centre had 50 enrolments this year, requiring the organisation to expand operations to a second day each week. Secretary Genni Briese said the ongoing success of the centre’s programs meant it was now 10 volunteers short. “We have two sessions on

Fridays but we need to start sessions on a Thursday as well.” Mrs Briese said Riding for the Disabled had operated in Geelong for 37 years, providing therapeutic horse-related activities for children with disabilities. The centre was willing to talk with anyone interested in helping, she said “We operate from the Koombahla Park Equestrian Centre in Wallington. Horse experience is a bonus but not essential. “The volunteer is expected to follow the coach’s instructions and, depending on the child’s dis-

But the Victorian Population Health survey shows residents in Borough of Queenscliffe, Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smallest municipality, are thinner than either of their neighbouring counterparts. Surf Coast women also drank and smoked more than their Geelong counterparts, while both genders in all three municipalities should eat much more vegetables. Health Minister David Davis

said the survey of about 7500 adults showed smoking was down but Victorians had â&#x20AC;&#x153;kept steady on abusing alcoholâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reduction in smoking rates shows that people, when given support, can and do take control of their own health and lifestyle and take positive steps in improving their wellbeing.â&#x20AC;? The survey found that almost two thirds or more of men and women in each of the three municipalities engaged in sufficient physical activity. But Mr Davis was concerned

about limited vegetable and fruit content in all diets and rising rates of obesity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just 52 per cent of people surveyed met the recommended minimum daily intake of two or more serves of fruit and less than one in 10 met the target of five or more serves of vegetables each day,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While the proportion of men and women who were overweight has remained constantâ&#x20AC;Śthe prevalence of obesity has increased.â&#x20AC;? The survey figures, released last Friday, were gathered in 2009.

We have people of all levels and abilities in the branch. “We always love to welcome new people to learn the art. “We’ve had people taking up the textile area in recent times, with people using felting and layers of fabric, fusing them and creating fabric out of paper and silk. “It’s still using the same techniques but our members are pro-

People are using a lot of recycled materials. “It takes embroidery to the next generation.” Sue said the branch put a lot of effort into its junior section, under the tutelage of leading embroiderers. “Some of our juniors have gone on to do textiles or graphic arts at RMIT.” Sue said the group was involved in many community events, such as Pako Festa. The group held a bi-annual member’s exhibition, while the prestigious Johnston Collection asked members to provide Christmas decorations for Fairhall House Museum in 2009. Members come from Winchelsea, Surf Coast and the Bellarine Peninsula, with groups meeting at Torquay, Portarlington, Leopold as well as Geelong.

EMBROIDERY is rarely considered an art form, except among exponents, of course. The 140 or so members of the Geelong branch of the Embroiderers Guild of Victoria take a lot of pride in their craft. The branch is a founding member of Geelong Artisans Group, aimed at raising the profile of the high standard of work among various local spinners, weavers, ceramic painters, lace makers, quilters and others. Branch president Sue Patterson said the socially-based group emphasised education. “We see our role as spreading the art to the following generations through scholarships, classes and exhibitions,” she said. “We’re keeping the art alive for future generations.” Embroidery was one of the oldest art forms as well as a fashion statement, Sue explained. The group was born of a Geelong Grammar School parents and friends exhibition, sparking

letters Meters UN-Australian ON AUSTRALIA Day we celebrated our freedom, our beautiful country and all that makes it great. The next day an electricity company informed us State Government had made installation of new smart meters mandatory and that power would be disconnected for properties without meters installed by the end of the time working on installations in our area. So much for the free choice we celebrated. It seems we’re only free to be told what to do by governments and councils. What will they do next, tax the air we breathe? Oh, that’s right, they’ve already done that. Funny how all other western countries are having mandatory smart meters installed, as directed by the United Nationals. Our governments are ruled by the UN. Dean Duthie Manifold Heights

Wall of sound I CANNOT understand why the residents of lower Lovely Banks on Anakie Rd, specifically those on the west side of Haugh St, have not started to really agitate for Vicroads to install a proper and substantial sound wall behind their properties. Such a wall would give them the same degree of noise isolation from non-stop traffic on Geelong’s ring road as accorded all other residential areas along the remainder of the road. The establishment of a terrific wall just prior to the Werribee exit at the Melbourne end of the Maltby Bypass has effectively negated Vicroads’ pathetic argument that Lovely Banks residents knew about the pending ring road prior to building there. Obtaining a similar wall should be a fait accompli for the Lovely Banks redisdents. Trevor Pope Whittington.

Day of disrespect DISGUST doesn’t start to express how I feel about that dreadful demonstration of violence and blatant disrespect in Canberra last week. Nothing gives anyone the right to threaten and attempt to manhandle people who are just doing their jobs - and elected ones at that. No one, whether our leaders or the lowliest among us, should be treated like I saw Julia Gillard and Tony Abbott treated. It has been evident that Ms Gillard and her ALP/Green colleagues have little aptitude for the positions they have been given but they are still our

peer reviews. I agree sheer numbers do not win a debate because the minority is often right. But in this lifeand-death issue it is dangerous to disagree unless you are absolutely certain. But what if Mr Barron is right? We replace coal with renewables, drive cleaner cars, walk or ride bikes more, grow organic food and create greener homes. What would be the effect of this? Cleaner air, more-reliable baseload power, cheaper electricity bills, energy security, food security, healthier food, better communities and more-comfortable living. If Mr Barron was right we would have created a better world, all for no reason. Gavin Brown East Geelong

Baillieu fails Geelong education I WRITE regarding a story in the January 20 Independent, headlined ‘Nelson school squeeze’. This type of funding squeeze is becoming the hallmark of how the Baillieu Government does business when it comes to education. As we begin the new school year, Geelong students are worse off under the Baillieu Government thanks to a halving of school capital works funding and massive cuts to education programs. The Baillieu Government’s first year in office will be remembered for breaking a key election promise to make Victorian teachers the best paid in the country and for robbing schools of $50 million for Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL). In fact, the Baillieu

Education: John Eren. Government has not brought before parliament any education-related legislation involving extra funding. Instead, it has halved the capital works budget, cut literacy and numeracy programs and scrapped 200 teaching and learning coaches by slashing almost $500 million from the education budget. Ted Baillieu has stripped

legal representatives. If you don’t think they personally deserve respect, their office certainly does. Soldiers who loathed their officers still saluted, not the person, the position. We should do the same. We should take the Canberra demonstration as a strong warning that our society is in serious trouble. Elizabeth Cross Wandana Heights

Gillard exports jobs ACCORDING to Alan Barron (Letters, January 27), we have yet to be “informed of the costs to the Australian economy of not using cheap and reliable coal-fired power”. The Labor/Green coalition has brought in a carbon tax to kill off coal use in Australia, although quarrying will continue to export coal. Jobs will be killed as manufacturing goes offshore to source cheap and reliable power from burning coal. The massive scale of coal exports helps push up the Australian dollar, putting more pressure on manufacturing. Our food-producing farmland is sacrificed to fill ships with coal, putting future generations in peril. The countries whose industries burn Australian coal impose tariffs and other trade barriers on Australian industry.

$300 from the household budgets of 100,000 families by slashing eligibility for the School Start Bonus, refused to provide $2 million to fund the Take-ABreak occasional child care program, abolished funding to build new children’s centres and scrapped free internet funding for kindergartens. He has abandoned Labor’s plan to rebuild, renovate or refurbish every Victorian government school by 2016/2017. Under the previous Labor government Geelong schools received record amounts of funding. Doesn’t Mr Baillieu realise education is our children’s future? Geelong deserves better. I will hold the Government accountable for its promises. John Eren MP Member for Lara

What a great day

The Gillard Government should reverse its policy and efficiently use coal here but not export it while expanding hydro, nuclear and solar power, which would create jobs. Kevin Guinane Gheringhap

Change is good THANKS for the laugh, Alan Barron. Spend years detracting from local efforts to combat climate change and then call Faye Smith and myself detractors (Letters, January 13). Good one! I challenged Mr Barron to prove Earth was cooling. I gave him fair and reasonable conditions: use long-term data and account for total heat content and variabilities such as La Nina. He failed. He moaned that we had never had a national debate on climate change while refusing to respond to my challenge. If he won’t debate me how can he expect a national debate? Instead of arguing the point, Mr Barron promoted his theory that carbon dioxide cannot cause global warming. He had backing from two professors’ findings, without peer review of course. If the Independent owned a paper mill I could respond with a list of professors who disagree - with

ON BEHALF of Geelong’s voluntary Australia Day committee, I would like to thank everyone who came to Rippleside Park to support our free children’s fun and entertainment day. The running of a community day such as this relies heavily on the support of the members of Lions Club of Corio Bay and the further support of Lions Club of Hamlyn Heights, community volunteers and local businesses who give their time and goodwill. We also thank City of Greater Geelong for having faith in our committee to run the day over the past 48 years and look forward to its continued support. Ron McVilly Geelong Australia Day committee president

Equal pay, unequal play WHEN is equal pay not equal pay? When it comes to the Australian Open. I can’t understand why male tennis players aren’t up in arms about this nonsense called equal pay. Men play the best of five sets, often for well over four hours in hot, humid conditions. Females play the best of three sets, with many matches completed in fewer than 90 minutes. Tennis administrators should stop this charade. Either men play the best of three sets, the same as women, or women play the best of five. You can’t have it both ways. Alan Barron Grovedale

ber Proof in 2006 to gunshot wounds. McVay also spent time in jail after failing to appear in court to instead stand as pallbearer at Proof’s funeral. Talking to the Independent from his Gold Coast hotel room, McVay said the experiences helped shape D12’s raps as raw and truthful in contrast to the commercial theme of much other American music. “As far as tragedy goes, you never really get over things like that you tend to just move on and become a bit desensitised a bit but that’s Detroit. “Everything is a learning experience, people change but all the things we go through just make us who we are. “Coming up through the years in this game we know people like vulnerability “We offer that.” McVay declared D12 “as strong as ever” despite the various misfortunes and departure of Eminem for a solo career across this tour. Kuniva, Maestro and Dj Don Q would join McVay on the tour, he said. “We’re still standing because that’s what we’re bred to do. “We ain’t going anywhere.” D12 plays Geelong’s Bended Elbow on February 5.

BY ERIN PEARSON EMINEM’s crew will ditch its comical rhymes for “a little more maturity” when the rap group begins its first Australian tour in eight years this month, according to a member. D12’s Swifty McVay, real name Ondre Moore, told the Independent the group was back and ready to shake up Geelong with new tracks and old favorites. “We’re more than a party group,” McVay declared. “We have a lot of substance, so we’re going to bring a little more maturity this time. “We’ve always offered an honest approach and never portrayed ourselves as something we’re not. That’s why people have given us longevity, why they’ve clung to us. “We’re not divas.” D12, an acronym for The Dirty Dozen, hales from Detroit, Michigan. The group formed in 1996 before achieving international success on the back of Eminem’s rise to fame. The group scored top 10 hits in Australia including Purple Pills and My Band. But McVay said the road to fame had been rocky. D12 lost original members Bugz in 1999 and founding mem-

aiders Bingo is especially set up to host fun, social and affordable games. The venue, at 54 Fellmongers Rd, Breakwater, hosts bingo sessions in afternoons and evenings seven days a week. Raiders’ Russell Enders says playing a few games while enjoying a bite to eat and a drink is a great social occasion. “It’s got to be the only game in the world where as soon as someone says ‘Eyes down’, everyone stops talking. “Then as soon as the game finishes they all start nattering away again.” Each session consists of two, hour-long games with a 10-minute break. Russell says changes to the Saturday night games have made them very popular. “Saturday is the big night and now there is more prize money on offer.” Hot and cold food is available at reasonable prices from the canteen, while tea and coffee is provided free. Raiders Bingo has comfortable, modern premises with air-conditioning, heating and ample car parking. Russell says the staff pride themselves on their quality of service. All bingo winners receive cash prizes of up to $1000, while various products are up for grabs in raffles. A promotional game called Cash Cringle is currently offering $195,000 in prize money. Russell says more new players as young as 20 are getting involved with bingo at Raiders. “It’s a good way to spend quality time with your parents or grandparents.” Raiders also offers paperless bingo on computer tablets, offering a great way for anyone inexperienced in the game to have an enjoyable experience.

1. Combine condensed milk and brown sugar in a large heatproof, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave, uncovered, on high (100%) for 3 minutes, whisking every minute until mixture starts to thicken. Microwave on high (100%) for a further 2 to 3 minutes, whisking every 30 seconds until a thick caramel forms. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or until chilled. 2. Using an electric mixer, beat cream cheese on high speed until creamy. Add caramel and stir to combine. Freeze caramel mixture for 1 hour or until thick and semi-frozen. 3. Combine 2 tablespoons chocolate powder and boiling water in a jug. Stir until chocolate dissolves. Pour into a shallow dish. Add liqueur and stir to combine. 4. Dip 8 biscuits, 1 at a time, in chocolate mixture, turning to coat. Place biscuits, side by side, on a platter to form a rectangular base. Stand for 3 to 5 minutes or until biscuits have absorbed liquid. 5. Spread one-third of the semi-frozen caramel mixture evenly over biscuits to cover. Repeat layers twice with remaining biscuits, chocolate mixture and caramel mixture. Cover and freeze for 4 hours. 6. Transfer to the fridge 1 hour before serving. Dust top with remaining 2 tablespoons chocolate powder. Serve. By Mr A of Belmont 1021078-JF5-12

New leap into sustainability R

Rylock’s Murray Riccardi and David Whyte discuss a quotation for doubleglazed windows and doors. nisms, mitre-cut frames and superior weather seals, latches, catches and locks. Murray says Rylock’s new bifold doors with three-point locking were so meticulously designed they can be used in the most-exposed locations, even along Victoria’s west coast. The bi-folds are a great alternative to classic sliding doors, fully opening up to six metres side for

spacious access from rooms to outdoor living areas. They bi-folds also can be manufactured as kitchen windows, providing an ideal servery for outside dining. Rylock’s innovation has also produced an “in-line frame”, which has over reveal and outer frame dimensions the same or parallel to make framing set-up and installation simpler with any external cladding. “As well as keeping up with customer orders, we’re making the time to progressively replace our existing showroom windows and doors with the new G3 products,” Murray says. “Although we almost need a bigger showroom to display the full range of products in the new range, the showroom adjoining the factory is progressing nicely as the G3 range on show constantly expands. Rylock is at 61-63 Morgan St, North Geelong, phone 5278 8711 or free-call 1800 066 628. The G3 range has been included on the company’s website at www.rylockwindowsgeelong.co m.au .

BY REBECCA EAST ight months after I had Harriet I felt really depressed and lonely. Maybe it was post-natal depression or a combination of things but I began to see a counsellor for support. I knew deep down that I could only improve my mental state by also focusing on my physical appearance. I had tried other weight watching groups twice before and other diets that I had read about in magazines but I was well aware none would work for me. I needed a friend, a teacher, someone who knew me and my eating habits and to whom I could be accountable. I needed a personal food coach, someone who could help me find the woman I always dreamed of becoming. I had been a member of The Weight Works a long time ago when I was younger but my social life was more important at that time of my life than losing weight even though I was well-aware I was overweight then, too. I knew that if anyone could help me not only physically but mentally it would be The Weight Works’ Mandy Fisher. I was so nervous and emotional when I called but Mandy remembered me. Her cheerful, friendly voice made it obvious she was pleased to hear from me. I thought she might have forgotten who I was. After I left my first appointment with Mandy I felt relieved and grateful but frightened because I weighed 91.5kg. I made a deal with myself then that I would work hard to lose weight and be a happier woman for my husband and my beautiful little girl. As I sit here writing my story, the journey is all of a blur. I can’t believe I have reached my goal and am so proud of the things I have achieved in the past

Rebecca East before and after The Weight Works program. two years. Early in The Weight Works journey my husband and I decided to move to northern Victoria after I successfully applied for a job at the local hospital. When I told Mandy I was moving it wasn’t a question of whether we were going to continue my journey but how. The on-line program was the answer. Now I am happy to say I have reached my goal of 65kg. I have also become a better wife, a better mum and a better me.

BY ERIC BLAIR n the road the IS 350 is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. The car points beautifully into corners at speed and despite the best efforts we could not induce understeer or for that matter oversteer, such is the car’s grip on the road. The Lexus IS 350 sedan is one of a number of models aimed at getting away from the conservative image of this upmarket branch of Toyota and one that rightly qualifies as a competitor to the hot versions of the big name German companies. The strongest of all attributes of Lexus, quietness and a serene ride, remain very much part of the equation. The IS 350 offers relaxed long distance travel thanks to its well-

shaped front seats that can be either heated or cooled according to your tastes and/or outside conditions. Despite its conservative look, the Lexus IS 350 is a real powerhouse. At the heart of all the Lexus IS 350 models is a 3.5-litre V6 that develops 233 kW of power and 378 Nm of torque. This really is a delightful engine, providing not only plenty of performance but also doing so in such a way that driving enthusiasts will smile over the way it works. The engine is linked to a sixspeed automatic transmission with sequential shifter. Safety gear includes dynamic management on all models, with stability control, traction control and hill start assist on automatic

It has very firm suspension but enjoys tremendous road grip because of that. This model is probably best left to the full-on driving enthusiasts.

APPROVED AP ROVED CA CARS

On fast gravel roads the car points well and with an excellent chassis corners particularly well with not too much body roll. Wading depth is 700 mm and the differentials have extended breathers high in the body. The FJ Cruiser has a departure angle of 31 degrees, ramp-over of 29 degrees and the all-important approach angle of 36 degrees. This latter figure is only bettered by the 70 Series Cruiser, while the departure and ramp-over angles are the best in the Toyota 4WD stable. The FJ’s off-road ability has been helped by 17-inch wheels and front and rear short overhangs – 865 mm at the front and 1115 mm at the rear. There is long wheel travel for negotiating nasty washouts and extremely uneven ground. The FJ Cruiser gets the crash-saving Vehicle Stability Control, active traction control, ABS brakes, Brake Assist and Electronic Brake Force Distribution. Standard fare also includes six airbags, reversing camera, rear parking sensors and active head rests for the front seats.

BY ERIC BLAIR tyled as a tribute to the Toyota FJ 40 LandCruiser that is a cult vehicle in Australia, the new FJ Cruiser is a serious off-roader that’s designed, and priced, to attract younger buyers as well as babyboomers. The FJ Cruiser is one of these vehicles that attracts attention wherever it goes. The wide grille immediate grabs attention; beside the grille are round headlights with huge front indicator lights are almost a caricature of the originals. Then there’s a tall, square bonnet and a windscreen that’s close to being upright. So wide is that near-flat windscreen that it needs three wipers to clear the glass – brilliant. While the original FJ40 was a twodoor the new one has ‘suicide’ rear doors, that is they hinge at the rear and open to the front. This not only adds to the retro image, but also makes ingress/egress to the rear easier. The suicide doors house the seat belts for the front occupants, so a front door must be open and the seat belts not in use for passengers to access the three rear seats. Toyota FJ Cruiser is powered by the familiar 4.0-litre V6 petrol engine found in Prado and HiLux. It is linked to a five-speed automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels by way of a dual-range transfer case. The running gear is borrowed from Prado, while the stiff chassis is a shortened version of the Prado platform. The FJ Cruiser shares a lot of hardware with the Toyota Prado. It will appeal to serious off-roaders with its significant credentials for tackling the hard stuff. There is nothing vague about the way it sits on the road. The suspension is tuned for Australian conditions.

sport Joeys look to Walerys Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE Talarico steadied to finish day one on 1/46. Trent Walerys will need early wickets tomorrow for Joeys to have any chance. In division two Thomson has given itself a chance in its crucial match against Geelong City. City batted first to score a decent 9/227, thanks mainly to veteran Adam Pitts’ 94. He didn’t have much support from his top but 40 from Jack Driver and 25 to Adam Marsland late in the day eased the burden. Jayden Hicks took five wickets for Thomson, while Adrian Saltalamacchia claimed four. Geelong City boasts the finest bowling line-up in the division but have everything its own way because the Tigers have a good blend of experience and youth. Their task is mammoth but with application they could manage a result that sets up their season. Winchelsea has the runs on the board in division three against Teesdale. Batting first last week, the Blues made 205 from 74 overs. Shaun Campbell was Teesdale’s star, bowling 19 overs for 4/41. Alistair Woods sent down 10 maidens from 19 overs, snaring 2/39. Teesdale has a chance to chase down Winch, particularly if James Wishart can score his second century of the season. Bowlers Sean Doyle and David Partridge hold the key for Winch.

THE CATS will strive to shake off patchy premier cricket form this weekend after securing a first-day victory against Hawthorn Monash Uni last Saturday. The Hawks batted first, which paid immediate dividends for Geelong when Travis Agg took two early wickets. From there Jeremy Hart ensured the Cats remained in control, dismissing the visitors for 130 in just 38 overs. Geelong got off to a bright start in reply, with Aaron Finch and Matthew Harrison putting on 46 for the first wicket. But then the wheels fell off. When Agg was dismissed with the score on 8/120 the Cats seemed set to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Luckily Marc Carson stood tall, calmly escorting his side to victory. Amazingly, Hawthorn had time to bat again, facing 13 overs and losing three wickets to finish 3/34. Anything could happen tomorrow but the Cats should take maximum points if they play smartly. In Geelong Cricket Association’s division one match of the round, Geelong West looks to hold all the aces against St Joseph’s. Joeys won the toss and elected to bat first, putting on 39 for the first wicket. But when Jarran Cook made the breakthrough, dismissing Damien Foster, all hell broke loose as Craig Allthorpe ripped through the top and middle order to reduce the hosts to 4/51 then 9/99 soon after. After the tea break Trent Walerys and Andrew Tozer dug deep to show some backbone with 37 and 47 respectively in a stand of 74 for the last wicket. Allthorpe finished with 4/42, while Joeys had to settle for a score of 173. West began its chase in the worst possible fashion, losing Mike Chapple for a duck. Sam Loftus and Glen

Soft side: Rick Maes with a typical snapper caught with soft plastic lures on the outer-harbour spoil grounds.

Bay spoils anglers with whiting and snapper WHITING and snapper dominated captures from Corio Bay’s inner and outer harbours over the past week. Stingaree Bay’s spoil grounds produced a bag of snapper to 63cm for Paul Jeffries who used Gulp minnows in the Nuclear Chicken colour. Paul reported the best action on run-up to high tide. Henry Lawson also fished the innerharbour spoil to landed fish better than 60cm using pilchard just on and after dark. North Shore’s rocks hosted small numbers of anglers, with patient types catching quality snapper to 5.3kg after dark on pilchard. Soft plastics anglers found various locations worthwhile. The Grammar School Lagoon hosted snapper and flathead, while Geelong’s waterfront between Cunningham and Fishermen’s piers returned good numbers of flathead on Turtleback worms. Outer-harbour results were equally impressive, with the Hermsley spoil grounds a magnet for plastics anglers who caught snapper to over 4kg and many around 1.5kg. Gulp swimming mullet and minnows were particularly effective. Nathan Hogg fished the southern end of Wilson Spit to land three big snapper over 5kg each. Nathan’s fresh squid baits also accounted for a gummy shark of just over 1m. Rick Stockdale also caught snapper, catching 65cm as well as a number of smaller fish on pilchard after an early start last weekend. Terry Fallon fished in 18m off St Leonards where he found small snapper a problem, taking all his bait. Terry tried

On the bite BRIAN LONG trolling back to the ramp, which resulted in his Dr Evil lures catching three snapper around 2kg each. Darren Middleton also found snapper while trolling. Fishing in about 7m off Portarlington, his bag included a fish of 6.7kg, taken on a Rapala Tail Dancer. Darren followed up 6his snapper session with a shot at the whiting only a few hundred metres from the Clifton Springs boat ramp. He caught his bag limit in less than two hours late in the afternoon. Bird Rock hosted plenty of boats, with anglers fishing within 100 metres of the rocks enjoying the best results. Most whiting were just over 30cm but garfish up to 45cm were an added bonus. Henry Shaw fished Edwards Point Henry for a bag limit of whiting before catching four nice flathead to 2kg after switching to soft plastics. Salmon were still inside Swan Bay, with most under 800g, but anglers working closer to The Rip caught fish to 3kg. Casting to surface action produced better results than trolling, as always. Noel Stirling found a patch of snapper

averaging 1kg off Black Rock. Noel also landed two whiting over 800g each, with fresh squid his bait of choice. Salmon were inconsistent in the surf, with many casts required per fish. Most were just under 1kg but specimens nudging 2.5kg were taken just prior to dark. Algae blooms have affected the Barwon River in Geelong but upstream of Buckley Falls was still productive for redfin in clean water. Vibe-style lures have been working best in the deeper sections during bright conditions, while suspended minnow patterns have been useful late in the afternoon or in overcast conditions when fished around undercut banks. Deep Lake again produced brown and rainbow trout, with lures working well and bait anglers finding either minnow or mudeye best. Wurdee Buloc Reservoir has fired up with redfin over the past month, some better than 1kg along with a few magnificent brown trout over 4kg. All methods have been working, with bait anglers requiring minnow or mudeye, fly anglers using nymphs and lure anglers successful on Tiger Minnows, vibes or Dorados. This weekend’s tides should be ideal for snapper on soft plastics on Corio Bay’s spoil grounds during the early afternoon. Freshwater anglers should try Wurdee Buloc until dark, letting lures drop close to the bottom for the bigger fish.

eelong triathlete Peter Kerr is looking forward to competing against some of his fiercest rivals on home turf. He sees his home ground advantage as an opportunity to improve his International Triathlon Union ranking. Kerr will compete in Australian Elite Sprint Championships in an URBAN Geelong ITU Triathlon Premium Oceania Cup as part of the 2012 Geelong Multi Sport Festival. Kerr was recently selected in an under-23 World Triathlon Championships team after placing third in last year’s event. Chris ‘Macca’ McCormack, the 2010 World Ironman Champion, will spearhead the men’s field. Joining McCormack and Kerr will be a host of exciting young Australians including Brendan Sexton and Joel Tobin-White. The Elite Men’s race start is over a fast-paced sprint course comprising a 750m swim, a 20km bike ride and a 5km run. Kerr said the spectator friendly Geelong course was one of the best scenic venues on the series. “It’s fantastic to be able to race right there where I train daily. It’s an opportunity for friends and family to get along and give me some support – or maybe even some heckling from friends.
