Spanish flavour for NT students at Heads BY BEN SAUNDERS A GROUP of 10 indigenous secondary students from the Northern Territory have sampled Spanish food in Barwon Heads. Ella Rzempwski’s Corason cafe hosted the middle school students this week, giving many their first taste of Spanish cuisine. The students came from a small, remote community, Nganmarriy, with a popula-

tion of about 400. Ms Rzempwski said she first met the indigenous children when she participated in a charity event that sent her to the Northern Territory last year. She travelled to their remote community, about four hours from Darwin, to teach residents how to cook basic meals such as fried rice. “It was the best experience of my life.”

Ms Rzempwski said she felt compelled to invite the students for lunch when she heard they would be in town. Accompanying teacher Joe Hewett said the students were in Victoria for 11 days as part of a government school program. “The program aims to give them an experience of how the rest of Australia lives outside of their community,” Mr Hewett said.

BY MICHELLE HERBISON FISHERIES Victoria will cut Queenscliff jobs as part of a State Government move to “combine” science teams and “refocus”, according to a minister. Agriculture and Food Security Minister Peter Walsh said the reshuffle would involve cutting some jobs at Queenscliff’s Fisheries Research Branch and moving staff from Melbourne and Geelong. Department of Primary Industries would concentrate on assessing fish stocks, measuring commercial and recreational fishing catches and undertaking targeted biological research on key fish species. Labor Member for Bellarine Lisa Neville said in parliament this week that the announcement would slash 15 jobs at the research branch – half its existing staff. “The impact of these savage cuts will have a disastrous impact on our local fishing industry and marine environment,” she said. “Talk of relocating staff from Melbourne and Geelong to Queenscliff cannot hide the harsh reality that we are going to lose 15 crucial research positions from the Department of Primary Industries.” The Independent reported in May that Fisheries Victoria’s work with a

mussel hatchery at Queenscliff had boosted industry at Portarlington. The facility had helped the state’s mussel production grow 68 per cent to 951 tonnes in the 2010/2011 year. Ms Neville said job cuts would place “innovative, world-class” developments like the mussel hatchery at “serious risk”. “It was staff at the DPI Centre in Queenscliff who developed a new shellfish hatchery to produce a reliable high quality spat that was vital in saving our mussel industry. The potential for developments of this calibre in the future is at serious risk with cuts of this magnitude to the research capacity.” Ms Neville called on the Government to reinstate the positions. Mr Walsh said the Government “remained committed” to fisheries science at Queenscliff. “Some current positions at Queenscliff will be reduced but no staff member will be forced to take redundancy as a result of the changes. Affected staff will be found employment within the department or will have the option of applying for a voluntary departure package if they choose.” Mr Walsh said the job cuts would “not affect” Queenscliff Marine and Freshwater Discovery Centre.

State seeks help on road strategy INDEPENDENT readers can help State Government prepare a new road safety strategy. This week’s paper includes a two-page survey seeking opinions on various road safety issues. The questions ask readers to advise the Government and TAC where they should focus campaigns and initiatives on issues such as speeding, drug and drink driving and other

road users including “older drivers” and cyclists. Deputy Premier and Police Minister Peter Ryan said survey data would go toward the 10-year Victorian road safety strategy, to be released in early 2013. “The survey is still open for

another three weeks – it doesn’t close until October 3 - so there’s still plenty of time for people to get involved,” he said. Independent managing editor Tony Galpin urged readers to complete the survey, on pages 14 and 15. “Anything we can do to fight the road toll is worthwhile,” he said. An online version is available at www.roadsafety.vic.gov.au.

Reverends, MPs split on same-sex marriage BY MICHELLE HERBISON “HEALTH problems” like HIV will increase if gay marriage is legalised, according to a Geelong reverend. St George’s Presbyterian Church Reverend Andrew Bray this week signed an Australian Christian Lobby petition to protect the definition of marriage as between “one man and one woman”. Rev Bray said health and theology jointly drove his opinion. “The increase in HIV and those sorts of issues… statistics indicate it’s greater in same-sex couples.

“My simple opinion is the indication that there are more health problems that would ensue as a result of legislating this than where we are at the moment.” Rev Bray’s comments came as federal parliament this week debated a bill to legalise same-sex marriage. Member for Corangamite Darren Cheeseman and Corio MP Richard Marles both confirmed they would support the bill at an upcoming conscience vote. The region’s other signatory to the Australian Christian Lobby petition, Church by the Bay Portarlington’s Reverend David Rock, refused to dis-

cuss with the Independent his reason for supporting the letter. Mr Cheeseman said anyone joining the public debate should be “upfront and honest”. His decision to support the bill followed 12 months of consultation with constituents. “After listening carefully, I’ve adopted the position to support their view. Obviously there’s a diversity of views out there but certainly the minority view in the Geelong community is to oppose it. “A lot of people are using fear to try and stop the reform. I don’t think there

are any consequences on people’s health by changing the Marriage Act.” Mr Marles said in parliament this week he “had an enormous amount of respect for” those who believed marriage should be between only a man and a woman but he disagreed. Legalising same-sex marriage would follow recent reforms in property and superannuation laws for homosexual couples, he said. “The legislation… will remove a denial of human rights from our books and will allow same-sex couples to engage in our society on the same terms as heterosexual couples.”

Cat condolences GEELONG Football Club has extended its “deepest sympathy” to the family of Port Adelaide player John McCarthy after his apparently accidental death in Las Vegas. Cats chief Brian Cook noted that McCarthy’s father, Shane, and brother, Matt, were former Geelong players.

Water appointment STATE Government has appointed a Torquay corporate lawyer to the board of Barwon Water. Water Minister Peter Walsh said Sarah Adams, senior legal counsel for Orica Australia, would begin a three-year term on October 1. He also announced the reappointment of existing directors Jodi Heath and Hugh Gleeson for second terms.

Disabled jobs A FEDERAL grant will help a Geelong agency create 25 “employment outcomes” and an equal number of work experience placements for people with disabilities, Minister Kate Ellis has announced. She said Pathways Rehabilitation and Support Services wold be among the first agencies in Australia to match disabled people with employers under a new Disability Employment Broker fund.

Coles closer A NEW supermarket for Lara is a step closer after local and state governments reached an agreement with Coles. Council said the trio had agreed on a process for construction works and transfer of land to allow the expansion of Lara’s town centre onto Austin Park.

Target accused GEELONG-based department store Target is in Federal Court accused of selling fake MAC cosmetics. A Target spokesperson said the products were sourced from domestic suppliers who provided assurances they were genuine.

Funding push GEELONG’S council will seek $430,000 from State Government for six sport and recreation projects. Councillors voted this week to seek grants of up to $100,000 for upgrade and improvement works in Whittington, Highton, Herne Hill, Norlane and Bell Post Hill as well as for a “broad strategic guide” on regional open space land and assets.

Harry on the road thanks to financial help BY CHERIE DONNELLAN TORQUAY’S Tanya and Terry Reid were able to drive their disabled son Harry for the first time in seven months last Sunday. The Reid family were “over the moon” to receive a secondhand wheelchair-accessible van after struggling to raise funds. Ms Reid said the family previously

battled to transport Harry, who has multiple disabilities including cerebral palsy, in their “1980s bomb of a car”. Harry’s grandmother and carer, Maree Hansen, said seeing the Reid family able to travel together was a “delight”. They were extremely grateful to community members who donated funds through the I Give a Buck Foundation, she said.

“I Give a Buck were great in promoting our campaign and so was St Laurence. “We’re also very thankful to the state and federal government for their funding.” Maree said an Independent story about Harry’s plight helped secure an additional $5000 in State Government funding.

BY NOEL MURPHY A DANGEROUS underground playground at Geelong’s former cement works silos has been sealed off and security ramped up after the Independent found youths armed with iron bars and spray cans. Adelaide Brighton Cement, which leases the site from VicTrack, said bolts on a metal cover to a tunnel under the silos had been reinstated after they were found deteriorated. The tunnel had become a dark adventure playground for youths found a fortnight ago emerging from the entrance with photographs. Graffiti vandals have covered most of the buildings with their handiwork. A group of four, one armed with an iron bar, as well as paint spray cans told the Independent the abandoned site was a great place for teens and that “heaps of people come here’’. “The particular tunnel entrance, from a standing back point of view, looked like it was secured,’’ an Adelaide Brighton spokesperson said. “However, on physically checking the covering metal plate it was realised the bolts covering the metal plate had weathered and the youths were able to move the plate to get access. “Over time, it appears the weather had weakened the bolts. This has now been repaired.” Neighbouring residents have also complained about the derelict condition of the McCurdy Rd site, which generated flying rubbish and dust in high winds. Adelaide Brighton has also moved to secure holes in perimeter fencing to restrict access. The company was in ongoing talks with VicTrack regarding the site’s future, the spokesperson said.

referral to external bodies is not required would demonstrate a greater urgency in facilitating appropriate projects.’’ Mr Fagg said planning delays were extremely frustrating for business, so City Hall had to scrutinise its resources, systems and processes. His manifesto stressed top priority to encouraging small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as a key driver of economic activity and jobs. “They’re the future of Geelong’s economy, the SMEs with 10, 20, 50 employees. We have to encourage them as much as we possibly can.” Mr Fagg said City Hall needed to adopt a stronger “can-do’’ attitude that helped rather than hampered business. “Most businesses understand that council has a role to play but enterprise wants local government to understand it better. Business wants to do the right thing but it needs understanding by government.”

Lunch lessons in ‘the art of etiquette’ A NEW program is giving Geelong primary school kids a lesson in the dying art of dining etiquette. About 60 grade five students from Northern Bay P-12 College last week shared a two-course restaurant meal and some stimulating conversation with lawyers and administration staff from national law firm Slater & Gordon. Ardoch Youth Foundation organised the event at Gordon Institute of TAFE’s Davidson Restaurant as part of the foundation's Etiquette Lunch Program. The program seeks to teach Geelong children about manners, conversation, respect and dining etiquette. Northern Bay College assistant principal Toni Scott said the

BAY ‘BOMBSITES’ CLEAN UP THE WATERFRONT

Wallaby, neglect in contrast

Hopping mad BY NOEL MURPHY NEWCOMB’S Bernie Woolfrey has videoed wallabies pounding through Eastern Park but can’t understand why authorities have abandoned its foreshore. Graffiti, rubbish and weeds have destroyed historic lime kilns adjoining the park, while a former gun club site has laid abandoned for years, smothered in smashed tar and lead-riddled targets. Mr Woolfrey was appalled at the detritus reaching all the way across Stingaree Bay toward a swan colony and an internationally-recognised bird haven in Moolap’s wetlands. “Over the years the tide and waves have gradually picked it up and moved it further around the bay,’’ he said. “You can see it on the satellite images on Google Maps.’’ The Independent has highlighted degraded sites on Corio Bay’s foreshore in recent weeks, with MPs, environmentalists, former ministers and mayoral candidates

calling for master plans, community committees, icon status and other action. The bay’s problems constitute a

catalogue of rubbish, vandalism, shooting galleries, dangerous sites, toxic and unremediated land and dumping grounds. They include asbestos deposits and a dangerous, unsecured former power station at North Geelong, an abandoned slipway at Rippleside and eroding cliffs at Western Beach. As for Eastern Park, it’s four years since the EPA issued a clean-up notice to Department of Sustainability and Environment and two since the department and council were meant to complete a master plan for the site. Mr Woolfrey’s partner, Kath Doole, said action was overdue. She echoed calls for a new approach to managing Corio Bay. “Perhaps leadership needs to be placed out of local government hands,’’ she said. “They’ve had long enough to get it sorted but are still so easily seduced by someone showing up with a fancy picture of a convention centre. “

A City Hall and Central Coastal

Board action plan drafted in 2010 called for a volunteer group to manage litter, weeds and pests and to revegetate the foreshore. But the plan needed “a new level of accountability and action’’, Ms Uzelac said. “Let’s get on with this … are we ignoring an obvious economic driver in our environmental assets? “What’s stopping us from taking control and fixing our own front yard?’’

BY NOEL MURPHY CLEANING up Corio Bay and its foreshore must be a high priority for Geelong’s next council, according to mayoral hopeful Bernadette Uzelac. She said turning a blind eye to derelict, unsafe and unsightly buildings and vacant properties along the foreshore would not make them go away. Ms Uzelac called for a foreshore audit and recognition of the economic and environmental ben-

BECOME A PERSONAL TRAINER! Although 2012 has been a year where people are tightening their belts, the need for good personal trainers is continuing to grow. More and more people are realising the benefits that a good trainer can provide when it comes to improving their health. Clients taking on this type of service are really average everyday people who have made a choice and commitment towards better health. Rather than spend endless dollars on dieting programmes, these people have decided to put their money into the hands of a good trainer. Paying for the advice and direction of a good trainer is really no different to paying for the advice of any other professional service. Club Exec, Geelong’s central gym is now the Geelong Campus for the Australian Institute of Personal Trainers. Managing director, Robyn Reimers says that despite most people believing there is a glut of personal trainers in our town, there is definitely a growing demand for personal training amongst the business population, particularly before and after normal business hours. Good trainers are those that have real life experience to pass on, good communication skills and live, eat and breathe the lifestyle themselves. People who fit into this category may have no previous background as a

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES IN THE HEALTH AND FITNESS INDUSTRY trainer, but are gold when it comes to training clients once they have been given the proper certification to do so. Robyn says “I am thrilled with the people that we have had come through our course already. They are extremely passionate about their work, and bring a vast amount of experience from disciplines such as triathlon, martial arts, athletics and running. I am looking forward to each and every one of them working out of our club as it continues to grow. It is also interesting to note that most people undertake the training as more of a means of educating themselves better, or merely for their own interest, rather than using it as a means of employment . The statistics held by the AIPT sited that learning how to train better was the biggest reason for anyone taking on this training. Personal training is often a part time career and a means of people supplementing their existing income. The real difference between this training programme and others, is that trainers get to practice their skills in a real gym environment. Whatever the reason that you take on this career, make sure you check us out or visit the AIPT website on www.aipt.com.au

BY NOEL MURPHY CATS FOOTY legend Billy Brownless is the first to concede his limited reputation for academic achievements. “I kicked a 150 goals in my HSC, I think that got me through,’’ he offers by way of evidence. Not that Assumption College ever let too many slackers through. Billy’s great great grandfather, Anthony Brownless, though, held an academic pedigree that would kick a Sherrin way over a Jerilderie wheat silo any day. Sir Anthony Colling Brownless set up a medical course at Melbourne University and served as its vice chancellor. He was a keen cricketer but appears to have shunned football. “He was actually knighted twice, once in the UK and once in Australia,” Billy says. “He set up a few things, he did pretty well for himself … and he had the best pack of hounds in Victoria.’’ Present-day Brownless fami-

Herbert Maguire and dated 1850, is on show at the medical museum. Prodigious sideburns and coiffure aside, the image bears a fair resemblance to the footballing Brownlow scion of contemporary times. “You really think so?” Billy asked. “We’re proud of the contribution made to Melbourne and Victoria, absolutely, and continue to be impressed by his vision and dedication.” The family heritage has another curious aspect. “He died on the third of December 1897 and my daughter, Ruby, was born on the third of December 1997, exactly 100 years later,’’ says Billy. It’s worth noting, too, the esteemed academic is in fact Billy’s namesake. “Our first-born sons are all named Anthony. I’m actually Anthony William myself.” But Billy failed to inherit the medical bent. “I’m good at self-diagnosis, though,’’ he claims, “but you just have to work through it. “A frothy helps sometimes, too, but my wife doesn’t think so.”

Barwon Water fined for work without permit BARWON WATER must pay a $6000 fine for failing to obtain approval for a water treatment plant at Birregurra, the state's environmental watchdog has revealed. EPA Victoria said the "company" admitted its failure to obtain the works permit,

required under the Environment Protection Act. The permit was required for works with "significant environmental impact", the EPA said. EPA south west manager Eve Graham

called the fine a "stern reminder" that companies must consult the organisation before beginning projects. "Without works approvals there is increased risk that industrial projects will cause pollution.”

Layout: The plans will dramatically expand the area of commercial activity on the site. opportunities, including a coffee shop. The move would also enable Winter and Taylor to redevelop its existing Mercer St site into a “state-of-the-art” dealership.

Parks, shuttles to cater for students DEAKIN University will “acquire” land for car parking and initiate a park-and-ride service to accommodate an influx of students into central Geelong next year, an executive has announced. Facilities services executive director Kevin Murphy said Deakin would use 19-23 Brougham St for parking and operate the park-and-ride service from Barwon Valley Activity Centre “in collaboration” with Geelong’s council. The park-and-ride bus service would be free for students, Mr Muprhy said. Deakin plans to move 1200 business and law students from Waurn Ponds to the university’s Waterfront campus next year. Business and civic leaders hope the influx will help revitalise central Geelong.

YOUR WEEKLY HEALTH TIP

“We’ve been looking for something since the government compulsorily acquired the Isuzu site on the other side of Mercer St,” Mr Morphy said. “We’re on five different sites

and this gives us the opportunity to amalgamate on two purpose-built sites. “It will help us make much better use of the land we have got. Our current service department site will be included in the rear of the car showroom, for instance. Mr Morphy said the expansion represented a strong vote of confidence in the automotive sector. “The truck sales and service section is a great part of our business, plus School Rd is a fantastic retail site.” Mr Morphy said existing site tenant Bunnings had requested a lease extension. “They said it would take six months to construct (Bunnings’) new site in Norlane and they’ll give us six months notice. “The timing all depends on when the Norlane warehouse is completed.”

STRENGTH – THE KEY TO MAKING GOOD RUNNERS GREAT! Running is undeniably one of the most time effective forms of training. Working every muscle fibre simultaneously, ensures that we are targeting our fat stores, and increasing our fitness in the shortest possible time frame. We also know how quickly we can regress once we are injured and out of action. So why is it, that most of us launch into this activity with little preparation or strength? Running without doing the appropriate strength training is like building a house without the right foundation. Strong leg muscles will make your run session a breeze.

We’ll have a panel shop there as well as the panel shop in town. “Seventy per cent of our truck sales and service customer base is in the north of Geelong, so this is an ideal location for us.” Mr Morphy said the dealership had plans to “further develop” the site with retail

Bid to ‘rescue’ food for needy

BTEXT

BY CHERIE DONNELLAN GEELONG will be a focus of a project to divert “perfectly eatable” food from going to waste and into disadvantaged homes, according to a Victorian welfare body. Foodbank Victoria chief executive officer Ric Benjamin said State Government had identified Geelong as a centre to participate in a statewide “food mapping project”. Foodbank and State Government would run the project to find food producers willing to donate products that failed to meet “Australian supermarkets’ high standards”, Mr Benjamin said. The products could become “rescued food” to help feed disadvantaged households. “Australian consumers are very fussy, so there is surplus food available that is currently being

thrown out or destroyed,” Mr Benjamin said. “These items are eatable but they just might be the wrong shape or size or have a small blemish, which producers can’t sell to supermarkets.” Mr Benjamin said a recent Foodbank report, End Hunger in Australia, identified a “hidden epidemic” of people unable to afford three meals a day. “With the high costs of rent, petrol, electricity and gas, people are unable to make ends meet. “We’ve found out parents are skipping meals so they can pay for their children to attend a school excursion.” Mr Benjamin said the food mapping project could help “starving families” but farmers were reluctant to donate produce. “They believe people won’t buy the food in supermarkets

because they’re giving it away for free to others. “We believe it will actually expand their market because some of our clients who have never had some fresh fruit and vegetables will try it, like it and possibly buy it once they’re back on their feet.” Mr Benjamin said the majority of people using Foodbank services and its related agencies like Geelong Food Relief centre were “only short-term clients”. The Independent reported last month that Geelong Food Relief was recording increasing demand for help. The agency’s Dave Manning said demand was rising among people at all income levels as they struggled to meet financial obligations. “People we don’t really expect are coming in and need the service.”

JOHN VAN KLAVEREN THERE could scarcely be a better nickname for a rugby union club than the Rams. After all, that’s what many of its players spend a good deal of the game doing – ramming the opposition. And the club has become pretty good at it, winning a few premierships along the journey no mean feat while promoting the “foreign” code in an AFL heartland. In fact, just as Geelong Football Club can boast being the second oldest AFL club, Geelong Rams are the second oldest rugby union club in regional Victoria, founded in 1929. Its original ground was Kardinia Park west, where St Mary’s now plays in Geelong Football league. Rams president Hugh Parsons said the club had been nomadic but was now settled at its home ground at Flinders Peak, Corio. “Our clubrooms have been recently upgraded and there’s plenty of room at the Ram’s Head Bar,” Hugh grinned. The club was particularly

Unionists: Rams players get down and dirty. proud of its efforts in cultivating its junior ranks, he said. “We’ve worked hard to develop our juniors. We run an underage competition and it feeds into our senior ranks. “There’s no rugby played in schools so there’s no grassroots development, other than our own junior teams. “Our coaches have done a fantastic job with the juniors and we have a great working relationship with Melbourne Rebels. “The Rebels regularly allocate two players to come and

visit us and help with the coaching, which the juniors love.” Hugh said the club attracted a “transient” population of players including expatriates from Fiji, New Zealand and Tonga as well as British and Irish devotees of the sport. “The beauty is that we get to meet people from all over the world because rugby is an international game which Aussie rules isn’t,” Hugh said. “Our secret recruitment weapon is that a lot of our players have married Geelong girls.”

Hugh said the game was played hard on the field but once players hit the sheds after the game they always had a beer with the opposition. “You become friends and respect each other as you get to know each other – I’m still in touch with mates from 30 years ago.” Hugh said anyone interested in checking out the “other” rugby code should call him on 5275 7277 or visit geelong.rugbynet.com.au.

Avalon dream WANT A CAREER IN HOSPITALITY? ‘in five years’ CERTIFICATE II IN HOSPITALITY (Kitchen Operations) SIT20307

“Our plan is that people from the Geelong region will continue to use Melbourne airport.” Mr Woodruff admitted public transport links from regional centres, including Geelong, were deficient. “I think my team can put more effort into trying to convince other bus operators to provide services from Geelong.” Mr Woodruff said Melbourne Airport serviced 28 million passengers annually, which he expected to grow to 60 million by 2033. The airport would spend $1 billion on improved roads and access, extra terminal space and possibly a third runway.

Mr Woodruff said road plans included direct access to Melbourne Airport from Western Ring Road. He pushed the case for Melbourne Airport to receive a rail link before Avalon. “When state governments make decisions about public infrastructure like airport railway links we’ll certainly join the debate about priorities. “We don’t shy away from our position that the need for a Melbourne airport railway link is greater than Avalon’s.” Mr Woodruff said Melbourne Airport’s master plan showed an underground station with a kilometre of underground track.

Chris Woodruff said it was a matter of when, not if, Avalon achieved international status and attracted an overseas carrier. “I can’t think where else in Victoria an international airline would choose to fly into apart from Melbourne or Avalon.” Mr Woodruff conceded international status for Avalon would “put a wobble” in Melbourne Airport’s passenger forecasts. “I’ll try and make that not happen by the way,” Mr Woodruff told a Geelong Business Network breakfast.

Research by Victoria’s road safety agencies shows:

Research by Victoria’s road safety agencies shows:

Travelling too fast is a factor in almost 30 per cent of road fatalities. Drivers travelling at 65 km/h in a 60 km/h zone have twice the risk of being involved in a crash, and that risk increases with higher speeds. A pedestrian or cyclist hit by a car at 40 km/h is 75 per cent more likely to survive than if hit at 50 km/h. Speed cameras are proven to have significantly reduced average speeds and new technology called Intelligent Speed Assist can detect and warn a driver if their vehicle is speeding.

People are three times more likely to die in road crashes on rural and regional roads and 40 per cent more likely to be seriously injured than in road crashes in metropolitan Melbourne. Almost 70 per cent of road fatalities in rural and regional Victoria claim the lives of people who are local residents. Around one third of all road fatalities on rural and regional roads occur when a single vehicle leaves the road and hits a tree.

2. Drink driving and road safety Research by Victoria’s road safety agencies shows: Drink driving is a factor in more than 25 per cent of road fatalities and 11 per cent of serious injuries. Repeat drink drivers make up about 30 per cent of all detected drink drivers. Drivers with a blood alcohol concentration of 0.15 per cent are 20 times more likely to be involved in a crash than drivers who have not consumed alcohol. Fitting alcohol interlock devices as a standard feature in all cars in Victoria could save about 50 lives and eliminate 500 serious injuries each year.

Q2 Do you agree that drink driving-related road safety should focus on the following: Circle a rating for each of the following Decreasing the alcohol limit for drivers Increasing awareness about the dangers of drink driving Increasing the number of drink drivers being required to have alcohol interlock devices fitted to their vehicles

Illegal drugs like cannabis, ecstasy and speed are detected in 15 per cent of Victorian road fatalities. The abuse of pharmaceutical drugs, such as Valium and Xanax, has been associated with road trauma in Victoria. 95 per cent of cases involving drug driving include drivers with three or more drugs in their system (alcohol, excessive levels of pharmaceutical drugs and/or illicit drugs).

3

40 km/h speed limits in school zones, shopping strips and areas of high pedestrian activity have significantly decreased pedestrian road trauma. Older people, those under 14 years, or those who are drunk are at greatest risk of injury from vehicles. More than 67 per cent of pedestrians take risks such as not using a pedestrian crossing.

10. Using vehicle technology to improve road safety

6. Cyclist road safety Research by Victoria’s road safety agencies shows:

Research by Victoria’s road safety agencies shows:

The number of journeys made by bicycle is growing by about 10 per cent each year. Bicycle helmets reduce the risk of head injuries by up to 60 per cent, while effective lights and a reflective vest significantly improve visibility and safety at night. Cyclist crashes most commonly occur at intersections, when leaving a path or driveway to enter a road, or when a car door is opened in their path. Designated bicycle lanes are a proven safety measure.

Strongly Agree

In Australia, new and used cars are given safety ratings. New cars are rated under the Australasian New Car Assessment Program (ANCAP). The least safe cars are given a onestar rating with the safest cars given a five-star rating. However, Australian cars are not required by law to offer all the same safety features as some overseas models. People involved in a crash in a car with a low safety rating are twice as likely to be injured than those in a safer car, while young drivers, who are most at risk of crashing, tend to drive less safe cars. Company fleet vehicles are a major source of private second hand vehicles. Policies that require companies to buy vehicles with a high safety rating benefit the company, its employees and improve the safety standard of the second hand market.

7. Young driver road safety Research by Victoria’s road safety agencies shows: Road crashes are the most common cause of death among people aged 16-25, with nearly half of all serious crashes involving young drivers occurring between 10 pm and 7 am. Young males driving at night on rural and regional roads are the most likely to be involved in a crash. Young drivers are most at risk of road crash injuries during the first six months of their probationary licence.

Motorcyclists who do not wear protective clothing are at a higher risk of serious injury. Nearly 60 per cent of speeding motorcyclists do not get fined because speed cameras are not able to identify them.

Compared to cars, fatigue is twice as likely to be the cause of a fatal crash involving a heavy vehicle. Devices which detect driver fatigue are currently being trialled.

Q9 Do you agree that heavy vehicle-related road safety should focus on the following:

11. Older driver road safety Research by Victoria’s road safety agencies shows: In 2011, 14 per cent of all drivers killed on Victoria’s roads were aged 75 years and over. Because older drivers are sometimes frailer they are also more likely to be seriously injured in a crash. Victorian drivers over 75 years are required to renew their licence every three years, while younger drivers need only to renew every 10 years. Requiring older drivers to be fully retested or have medical examinations when renewing their licence has not been proven to decrease road accidents.

Q11

Do you agree that older driver-related road safety should focus on the following: Circle a rating for each of the following Educating older drivers on how to assess if they are safe to continue driving Improving the visibility of road signs and making road features less complicated Providing more alternative transport options for older people Providing information to older drivers about the safety benefits of cars with five-star safety ratings

12. Transport Accident Commission The Transport Accident Commission (TAC) has a responsibility to work with the Victorian community to reduce road trauma and support those it affects. Funding used by the TAC to perform these functions comes from payments made by Victorian motorists when they register their vehicles each year with VicRoads. Each year the TAC develops a range of road safety campaigns and initiatives to promote road safety and reduce the cost to the Victorian community of compensation for transport accidents.

letters Damage not art I READ with interest Noel Murphy’s story headlined ‘Children dicing with death’ (Independent, September 7). I did, however, take great umbrage in his description of graffiti vandals as “graffiti artists”. These vandals cause millions of dollars worth of damage to private and publicly owned assets in our state each year, so to validate their uninvited damage as art was totally incorrect. I believe that my views would be echoed by all Geelong residents who take pride in our city. I ask that the Independent rectify this error and prevent any repeat in future publications. No matter whether this obnoxious scrawl appears on derelict buildings, railway rolling stock or roadside furniture, it is by definition vandalism and, as such, remains unacceptable in our community. Tony Duffield Leopold

Protest, voters LAST week’s Independent published several letters and stories of great relevance and interest. I congratulate the Independent on publishing these views and write in support of them. Colin Wallace wrote that councillor Stretch Kontelj saw money as the key issue in mayoral elections. I agree that the mayor is not the CEO of a company but has responsibility to a range of people and communities. Sandra Camm pointed out that the environmental values of Corio Bay and Eastern Park were ignored and subordinated to development. When are governments going to realise that privatisation is not working for people? Then there was the couple from Melbourne who came to Rippleside with the promise of a lifestyle that had not eventuated. Philip West objected to an increase in council rates. These increases are an example of low income-earners and pensioners hit with increases they cannot easily pay. These issues were all related and implied the incumbent mayor and many councillors lack empathy for the average resident. Council is good at one thing - taking money from people. Parking fees, permit fees, tip fees, fines et cetera go into the pocket of council to the detriment of traders, shoppers, residents and visitors. Council is selling off Geelong to developers and builders for the short-term gain of planning fees and

Build it and they will come to city

City living: Rod Macdonald.

CR ROD MacDonald was on the money about “latent” demand for medium-price properties in inner-Geelong (Independent, September 7). Increased accommodation is being planned for Deakin University students and various highly priced apartment developments are on the way. In August 2011 City of greater Geelong accepted a report that proposed that a “demonstration project” to showcase shop-top living in central Geelong be initiated in order to stimulate development

in central Geelong. Was the project actually carried out? For ordinary young couples starting out or for suburbanites wishing to downsize, there is little on offer in the way of affordable inner-city housing. Council might want to look at streamlining the planning process for conversion or building of top-shop dwellings. I suspect it would truly be a case of build-it-and-they-willcome. Jeannette Johanson North Geelong

the longer-term prospect of increasing the rateable value of land. I urge Geelong residents to exercise their democratic rights and register their protest by not re-electing Mayor John Mitchell. Ann Webb Norlane

more-common-sense measures are adopted? Then our sufferers might begin to recover from the collateral damage inflicted by this unscientific, unethical, coercive, harmful and costly toxic waste disposal program. Peter Mackinlay Geelong

REGARDING the letter headlined ‘Showered in poison’ in the August 31 Independent, Elaine Valentine’s health problems caused by fluoride in our water are shared by others suffering similarly to a greater or lesser degree. All have been ignored by the autocratic, unfeeling fools responsible for fluoridation. Unfortunately, those who perpetrated the poisoning of our water while claiming it is perfectly safe cover their backsides with legislation shielding them from accountability. If their claims were factual why would they need litigation protection? The adage ‘Put your money where your mouth is’ obviously lacks appeal. This is government of the people for God knows who and by the government but why? With every issue of newspapers concern is expressed about increasingly poor dental health despite most of our population being on fluoride since the 1980s. Shouldn’t it have worked by now? How long do we have to wait before this expensive experiment is deemed a failure, abandoned and

IF SARAH Henderson wants all of us to vote for her in the next federal election why, when she brought Tony Abbott to “morning tea” at Grovedale, did she invite my husband but not me (Independent, September 7)? Big tip, Ms Henderson: Victorian women have been voting for over 100 years. Lee Gladwell Grovedale

Bad government I BELIEVE that the Victorian Government is bad for cutting funding from the state’s TAFE schools. I have been at Gordon TAFE in Geelong for quite some time and consider it my home and work to keep me going. I go to TAFE twice a week. If the Government succeeds in making cuts to TAFE funding it will result in many students losing their opportunity to find employment as well as put teaching staff out of jobs.

I believe that Gordon TAFE is part of Geelong and we need to fight to keep the institution operating. The people of Geelong should protest this decision to cut funding from TAFE schools. Brian Porter South Geelong

Bureaucracy kills TWO NEWS items featured on TV programs drew attention to unintended consequences of regulation/over-regulation in today’s society. Institutionalisation of decision making through the use of protocols in businesses may be observed in the account of the crash of an aero-medical jet into the ocean in 2009 and in the events leading to the decision of Queensland’s Premier to trial a new protocol for providing assistance to people with disabilities. The aircraft captain’s decision leading to the crash was made on the back of decisions dictated by flight protocols for that work, which were subsumed into safety-related protocols. The institutionalisation of decision making through use of normal protocols operating in normal situations might hinder the exercise of freedom of choice in choosing optimum solutions to one-off problems. The Queensland Government’s trial of de-institutionalising provision of disability benefits to handicapped persons by transferring freedom of choice from institutions to the person subject to the benefit might bypass some regulatory constraints imposed by protocol. An observer of limitations of Britain’s health scheme summarised his own Gammon’s Law as: Stealthily lethal bureaucracy slowly but surely kills. To quote A Zalesnik: “The major defect of the bureaucratic approach is the inability to separate the vital from the trivial”. The effect of unintended consequences on democratic government operations might explain the apparent failures of such governments in which the activities of critical analyses of protocols might be incorrectly dismissed as the influence of negative bias, based on caprice or cult.

A couple of musos BY CHERIE DONNELLAN COUNTRY-pop singer Kasey Chambers joked that after releasing one duet album with husband Shane Nicholson they should have learned “not to do it again”. But when the Independent met Chambers and Nicholson they were the picture of marital bliss. “We’re just like any couple really. We have a normal family life,” Chambers smiled. The couple will perform in Geelong next month after releasing a second duet album, Wreck and Ruin, last week. Nicholson joked the album gave them a chance to “get away from work by working”. Chambers agreed, saying the album allowed them to play music that would be otherwise beyond their solo careers. “We had to make it different to not only distinguish ourselves from our solo sounds but so it’s more fun for us,” she added. Nicholson told the Independent writing the songs was a case of “trial and error” but the recording process was fast. “We spent seven days in the

studio and recorded it live,” he said. “We had a great bunch of musicians so that helped.” Nicholson described the recordmaking process as a mixture “science and soulfulness”. But the “soulfulness has to take over”, he said. “When we were recording you can hear us finish playing a song and say ‘Well, that’s not the one’ because it wasn’t technically right,” he reminisced. “But then we played it back later and chose that recording because it just felt right.” Chambers said much of the new album was about exploring the couple’s downfalls but it helped to play music with her husband. “When we write songs like Til Death Do Us Part, that song means something to us and I think it helps the soul of the music.” Nicholson interjected: “I think our fans definitely notice and appreciate our honest connection, musically and in life”. Chambers and Nicholson play Geelong Performing Arts Centre’s Playhouse on October 25.

Whittington’s young talents in showdown

Coupled: Kasey Chambers and husband Shane Nicholson play Geelong next month.

YOUNG Whittington performers will battle this weekend for a chance to perform for the public at their suburb’s annual community festival. A council spokesperson said the best performers in Saturday’s Whittington’s Got Talent auditions at Bellarine Living and Learning Centre would appear in Flamefest on October 26. Advocates 4 Youth, a group of young people from Whittington and surrounding suburbs, is staging the talent quest. Mayor John Mitchell said the event encouraged young performers to “be brave and share their talents”. “It can be a daunting task to get up and perform in front of a big group of people but I encourage those considering trying out to be courageous and just give it a shot,” he said. This event is a unique and fun way to get our young people involved in community activities and meeting other locals. “Last year Whittington’s Got Talent was a huge success, with plenty of entrants with great talents, which is why we’ve got it happening again.” Cr Mitchell thanked Advocates 4 Youth for its work organising the talent quest. “I’m sure it’s going to be a great show when the finalists go head to head at the fantastic Flamefest in October.”

CLASSIC Russian beauties will float into Geelong next Friday dressed in tutus and pointe shoes. Ballet director Gediminas Taranda was “excited” to bring his rendition of Sleeping Beauty to Geelong. “This is a very classical regional story,” Taranda told the Independent, “but I have created some new choreography to boost this classical performance.” Taranda joked he would spare audiences having to sit through the original Sleeping Beauty’s four-and-ahalf-hour performance. His produciton would comprise three acts of two and a half hours “but with breaks”. “People are very busy these days with family and work but this show allows families to spend time together.” Taranda reminisced about an Australian family impressing him with their “appreciation of classical ballet” during his last tour. “They told me their lives were busy but when they go to the ballet it was like opening a window and smelling fresh air. That made me smile.” Taranda said his troupe of 45 dancers had worked hard to prepare for the performances. “Before we came here the dancers had eighthour rehearsals every day. It takes a lot of practice to perfect the performance. Taranda’s Imperial Russian Ballet Company will perform at Geelong Performing Arts Centre on September 21.

Sponsor pets to find homes P

et lovers can get involved in the good cause of helping displaced animals by volunteering or donating at Geelong Animal Welfare Society (GAWS). GAWS’ new Pen Pals sponsorship program is the perfect way for families or small businesses to make a difference to the life of a furry friend. Donations to Pen Pals can be made online or in-person, either outright or monthly. GAWS can place a special message from a family or put a business name on a sponsored pen for all visitors to see. Pen Pals can ensure animals with behavioural problems or in need of medical care receive much-needed treatment so

they’re ready for new homes. Pet enthusiasts who prefer a more hands-on approach to helping out can get involved in GAWS’ foster care program, which involves allowing an animal into the home for a period of time. Kittens too young to be rehomed or de-sexed can benefit from a week or two of family time until they reach a healthy body weight. Animals recovering from elective surgery or in need of medical care like antibiotics are also desperate for a bit of love. GAWS is seeking volunteers with a range of skills from artists to gardeners and administration to maintenance.

Striking Accord with buyers BY ERIC BLAIR onda Accord is quality Japanese car that has an excellent reputation in Australia for quality and reliability. First sold here in 1977 it grew in size over years from a small-medium to a medium-family car. But as it grew it also became rather soft and conservative. To counter this Honda made the astute decision to offer two different Accord models with distinctly different driving characteristics. One, called Accord Euro, has a real emphasis on sporty handling, the other, just called Accord retained the gentler feel. Accord Euro lives up to its name in the handling department with precise communicative steering and plenty of road grip. Driving enthusiasts don't necessarily want cars with look-at-me styling and the design of the Accord Euro remains conservative. Changes include a new two-bar grille in place of the previous three-bar version, re-sculptured front bumper, foglight surrounds and ventilation apertures. The rear lights are of softer red and there is now a chrome strip on the boot lid. Inside there’s a new satin-finish on the door handles, console, steering wheel and other interior components while an anti-dust feature has been applied to the cloth trim of the base model. Accord Euro comes in three grades, the base model just called Euro, the higher-specced

Standard features include front, side and curtain airbags, ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and emergency brake assist, rear parking sensors, Bluetooth controls on the steering wheel, foldaway key, USB/iPod connectivity, Trailer Stability Assist auto headlights and rain-sensing wipers and the option of 18-inch alloy wheels. The rangetopping Luxury Navi has bi-HID headlights with automatic low/high beam and a cornering function which operates at speeds up to 40 km/h. The Accord Euro Luxury also gets a powered driver’s seat with two memory settings, heated front seats, front parking sensors, sunroof, fog lights, headlight washers and autodimming rear vision mirror. As the name suggests, the Accord Luxury Navi model comes with satellite navigation as well as a reversing camera. The base model Honda Euro comes with 17inch wheels as well as a full-size spare. The two Luxury models have 18-inch wheels and space saver spares. There’s good interior space, with the level of leg, elbow and headroom that you’d expect from a larger car. However, as is generally the case, the sunroof that comes standard in the Luxury models does reduce front seat headroom, so try it out during your test drive. continued on page 41

The Independent, Friday September 14, 2012


On the road there’s a nice balance between road feel and ride comfort that allows the Accord Euro to be equally at home in both urban and rural conditions. There’s less tyre noise through the suspension on coarse-chip surfaces than in many other cars aimed at the European market. Steering is precise and responsive with a well-balanced road grip that makes it a real pleasure to drive. The already good feeling of body and suspension strength has been further improved with the introduction of Honda’s Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) chassis that absorbs and actively channels crash energy away from passengers. Official fuel consumption figures are marginally down on the previous model, at 8.7 litres per 100 kilometres on the combined test with the manual gearbox, 8.5 L/100 km with the automatic. We found ourselves sitting very close to these numbers during our test, something which is not always the case when comparing factory tests with real life conditions. The other good news is that the strength of the Aussie dollar has meant that prices have been cut, with the entry level Accord Euro now just a touch over $30,000. Great value for a well-equipped, spacious car that’s also a lot of fun to drive.

Comfort: On the road there’s a nice balance between road feel and ride comfort.

48 YEARS CONTINUOUS TRADING IN GEELONG : RACV

1046157-KS36-12

Boot capacity in all models is a moderate 467 litres, so there’s no additional capacity from the use of space saver wheels in the Luxury variants. All Accord Euro models come with the same 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine. While it’s not as refined as the six-cylinder units that most of its competitors use it comes surprisingly close. Maximum power of 148 kilowatts comes in at high 7000 rpm, as does the torque peak of 234 Newton metres (at 4300 rpm), although there’s decent pulling power at all revs over 2000. It will cruise comfortably at steady revs from 1500 in the interests of minimising fuel use and carbon dioxide output, but you have to change down a gear, sometimes two, if you want to get the engine back into the middle part of the torque band. A diesel engine is available overseas but to date has not been taken up by Honda Australia. Our test car came with the fivespeed automatic with the convenience of steering wheel mounted paddle shifts. Unusually for cars in this class, but appropriate for the Euro’s sporting bent, there’s also the option of a slick six-speed manual in the base and Luxury models. We’ve driven this in previous models and it’s a real delight to use, particularly when you remember that this sporty sedan is driven by the front wheels.

sport Coutas, Panthers set for glory QUEENSCLIFF will be out to make it two Bellarine Football League premierships in a row when it takes on Torquay at Drysdale Recreation Reserve on Saturday. The ladder didn’t lie this year, with these sides sitting one and two for most of the season. Queenscliff will go in as favourite because it has only lost one game for the year and has accounted for the Tigers each time they’ve met. A few seasons back you would never have dreamt that the Coutas would win a premiership again let alone be in a position to win two in a row. Coach Tom Limb only took over the reigns this year and was on a hiding to nothing but he has proved more than capable. Having outstanding players in Dan Measures, Steve Owen, Nick and Luke Orvis plus boom recruit Dan Degois places the side in a good position but a lot of the credit has to go to the coach and the administration down at Queenscliff. Torquay has had a good season for new coaches Craig McCaughan and Mick MacFarlene and their experience on and off the field has benefitted all at

Local Footy FRANK MASON the club. The Tigers only lost to the Couta’s by 11 points in the second semi-final and know they’re in with a real show on Saturday. Finals series are littered with upset results but Queenscliff has done everything right so far and should win a thriller. Torquay and Ocean Grove plays off in the reserves, while West Saints and Bell Park kick off the day in the colts division two grand final.

GDFL Geelong and District Football league also plays its grand final on Saturday, with Bell Post Hill and East

Geelong clashing at St Alban’s Reserve. Bell Post Hill is after three flags in a row and is playing its fifth consecutive grand final. To say it has finals experience is an understatement. It also has fine players in Brad Martin, Chris Moreland, Justin Tarr and Cameron Addie. The Panthers have led the competition all year and will go is as favourites. East Geelong has come from fifth spot on the ladder and is in red-hot form. By most peoples reckoning, Bell Post Hill is the best side in the league followed by Thomson and then Bannockburn yet the Eagles belted Bannockburn in the first semi-final and followed that up by flogging Thomson in last week’s preliminary final. It definitely has a chance in this one, with Simon Prymke, Ryan Closter, Lucas Murphy, Andrew Challis and Jesse Mawson in season-best form just when it counts. This promises to go down to the wire, with Bell Post Hill to just hang on. North Geelong and Bell Post hill play off in the reserves, while Inverleigh and North Geelong play

the division three grand final of the colt’s competition at 9.30am.

GFL St Joseph’s and Bell Park meet at Simonds Stadium on Saturday in Geelong Football League’s preliminary final. The winner advances to next weekend’s grand final where South Barwon awaits. Joeys was pretty ordinary last weekend and would want to improve markedly to win this one because Bell Park is in ominous form as it looks to defend its premiership title. This improvement is possible because Andrew Lovick, Cam Johnston, Dan Lovick, Dale Carson and Russel Robertson are class acts and will rally the troops on Saturday. There is a lot to like about the structure of Bell Park, with two good big men in Zane Vail and Lachlan Kennedy plus the pace of Tim Sheringham and Tyler Stack around the packs. In yet another close final it will be Joeys by a small margin.

Anglers look to this weekend for respite from wind and big swells On the bite BRIAN LONG

‘Swimming lessons, a gift for life’

Streaming: Nick Whelan shows off a stream-caught brown trout. Springs before the heavy winds set in. This area is renowned for being one of the most consistent locations for a big snapper over the coming months. St Leonards should start to fire up again this weekend after the water has cleared. Anglers should look for whiting in around three metres of water. Anyone seeking flathead should try in depths from 10m to 15m.

Squid have been extremely patchy recently, with the better results coming to anglers fishing close in to Duck Island at the mouth of Swan Bay. Squid numbers were also good on the opposite side of the bay near Portsea. By all accounts, this area was producing well on the run-up to high tide, especially for anglers using dark coloured jigs. Freshwater results were also down, with many

STRONG wind kept most anglers indoors over the past week, while big swells added further limits to chasing salmon down the coast. Both the wind and seas are forecast to abate this weekend, so salmon captures should be viable from the deep water rock platforms between Lorne and Apollo Bay. Expect lure to be the most productive method. The strong winds played havoc on the bays, discolouring the water to generally reduce captures. However, anglers who put in the hard yards reported some quality results. Tanner Webb drifted the outer-harbour spoil grounds with soft plastics, finding a few nice snapper. Most averaged around 35cm but two were just over 2kg. Salmon were found close in at Alcoa Pier where casting soft plastics into the surface activity resulted in reasonable numbers of 1kg fish. The fishing improved in the Fisherman’s Pier area as the week progresses, with snapper making up the majority of captures. Most fished were about 30cm, with better specimens nudging 40cm. Stuart Giddings put in a few hours on the snapper at North Shore rocks on Monday night, landing two fish better than 3.5kg on fresh squid. Paul Jeffries also fished Corio Bay on Monday night, finding the snapper willing to bite and returning with three to 4.1kg. Paul said he found plenty of fish on his sounder, especially between Royal Geelong Yacht Club and Western Beach. John Uwland found the snapper off Clifton

anglers trying to avoid the harsh conditions. Lake Bullen Merri hosted shore-based anglers who caught small rainbows on Powerbait, with the odd bigger fish caught on lure. Anyone prepared to fish this water after dark with local gudgeon can expect to land big brown trout. Terry Forbes did well after dark this week, with his biggest fish weighing in at a handsome 3.1kg. Deep Lake hosted few anglers, with only a small number of newly released fish taken on Powerbait and worms. Many anglers headed to the streams looking for a brown trout, me included. Fishing the Leigh River just downstream of Shelford, the high and discoloured water was perfect for working lures but I only managed to grass two small fish. Nick Whelan also fished his local streams where his Rapala lures turned out to be a great choice when he landed a beautifully marked wild brown trout. Adam Van Der Lugt recently headed to the high country streams. With the trout opening in full swing and the rivers running clear, any number of brown trout were to be had on both fly and lure. It seems the best freshwater captures this week were all taken by anglers working the many streams we have on offer. With the best snapper fishing period upon us, now is the time to hit the water off Clifton Spring. Look to the area near the bend in the channel. Don’t fish too close to the channel line because the fish will be working the banks. Wilson Spit and The Chair are also well worth a few hours, especially this weekend. Fish the afternoon run-off from high tide with pilchard or fresh squid for bait. Soft plastics anglers should drift over the rough terrain near Wilson Spit. The best freshwater option this weekend will be Lake Tooliorook. Powerbait fished from the shore should be ideal, while boat anglers should enjoy the best results using small, deep diving bibbed lures.
