NEW INSPECTOR TURNS HEAT ON PARENTS PAGE 3

Cash ‘lost’ to rail line Anger over reallocation Batman Rd. The association proposed to swap a four-hectare council-owned parcel of land for the 12Ha woodland site. The Independent later reported that a Friends of Bengalat Nature Reserve group would form to manage the site with Bellarine Catchment Network. Geelong Environment Council’s Joan Lindros said the site should be protected because it contained red gums pre-dating white settlement. “It could be made into a delightful park. It’s ludicrous the land swap hasn’t been able to be finalised. “The money was set aside for an environment issue that’s really important. There are some weeds

but what’s really fantastic is there’s a group of people there willing to look after it.” Ms Novosel said she was disappointed about the funding reallocation after asking ward councillor John Doull to instead use the money for heritage-listing eight Indented Head boat sheds. “With the delay in the community-supported swap of public open space for the grassy woodland, we would have preferred that money to have stayed in Indented Head and be allocated toward heritage listing the boat sheds built in the 1920s.” Ms Novosel said she met Cr Doull on February 9 to request the funding reallocation for research on the proposed heritage listing but failed to win his backing. Heritage-listing the sheds would acknowledge those who established Indented Head”, she said. Cr Doull had not responded for comment when the Independent went to press.

BY MICHELLE HERBISON A REALLOCATION of council funding for an Indented Head conservation project is “very disappointing” for the town, according to its community group. Indented Head Community Association’s Ingrid Novosel said $10,000 towards conservation of a grassy woodland site should have remained in the town. Council voted this week to reallocate the money to a 150th anniversary celebration of a Geelong-Ballarat rail line after hearing the woodland project was “unable to progreess”. The money would pay for a heritage train to travel between Geelong and Ballarat and host activities at the two stations, council heard. The Independent reported in 2008 that the community association had proposed a “land swap” between council and Seabreeze Estate developer Mira Ira, which owns the woodland site on

$100m threat to Government

Writ over port BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN STATE Government faces a $100 million writ for attempting to kill off a 30-year-old proposed tourist resort development on the Bellarine Peninsula. The company behind ill-fated Port Bellarine, Grawin Pty Ltd, lodged a Supreme Court writ as the Government rushed a repeal through parliament this week. Parliament was told the dispute had been through arbitration but compensation would be unavailable to the developer. The Government must repeal a 1981 act of parliament establishing Port Bellarine to kill off the proposal. The agreement allowed for the

development of 1000 residential lots, a marina and canal system at Point Richards, near Portarlington but work never commenced. Bellarine MP Lisa Neville warned parliament of “some particular legal issues that may arise as a result of this bill”. “Anyone having a look at the nature of this bill would see there was always a risk the developer may have wanted to seek further legal action. “The bill includes a provision that no claims would be made against the state and no compensation would be payable.” Ms Neville said the Government instead intended to give the company an ex-gratia, or

goodwill, payment. The Government wanted to repeal the agreement and its conferred Crown lease because the development was “now out of step” with policy and community expectations, parliament heard. “In particular, the environmental impacts of the development would be regarded as unacceptable in today’s setting.” Planning Minister Mathew Guy’s spokesperson refused to reveal the size of the ex-gratia payment. The writ is the second from the Geelong region for Mr Guy after L Bisnella Developments sued over his decision to overrule a Lara development.

Fringe: Kate O’Keefe show.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN PRESENTING a solo show at the Adelaide Fringe Festival about a missing person left performer Kate O’Keefe feeling a little uneasy. But not because the show was about her brother, Highton man Daniel O’Keefe, who left the family home more than eight months ago. “It’s a huge issue but people don’t talk about it. It’s one of those elephant-in-the-room situations,” Ms O’Keefe said. “I was afraid that people might not have come to see the show because it made them feel uneasy. “It’s not easy to talk about and people often don’t want to think about or feel those things. “It made the show difficult to promote because it felt like a negative in the middle of all these happy

or funny shows.” She wrote her show, Life as I Knew It, as part of a creative drama class for her primary teacher studies before enlisting two friends as producer and director for the Adelaide debut. “I wanted to do it in Adelaide first, away from the spotlight in Victoria,” she said. “The response has been really good. People stayed afterward to talk and told me they were moved. “I’ve been encouraged to bring the show to the Melbourne fringe and to Geelong.” Ms O’Keefe said dealing with the aftermath of a family member going missing was complex. “Doing the show enabled me to express myself and it was cathartic and therapeutic. “But the main reason for it was to raise awareness of the situation.”

Fear public sector cuts could ‘hammer’ Geelong BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN STATE Government cuts could “hammer” public sector jobs in regional centres like Geelong, a union fears. Community and Public Sector Union secretary Karen Batt said the “unsustainable” policy would devastate services. “There will be a significant loss of spending power in the community as well as a flow on effect,” she said. The Government’s “sustainable

government” initiative seeks to cut 3600 public service jobs. The cuts would comprise a recruitment freeze, non-renewal of fixed-term contracts and voluntary redundancies over two years. “There are high numbers in the Department of Sustainability and Environment and Department of Primary Industries on fixed terms. Many are being tapped on the shoulder and told their contracts won’t be renewed,” Ms Batt said.

“We understand it could be as many as one in six in DPI and one in eight in DSE. “Then there’s also significant numbers affected in the Department of Human Services and Department of Justice.” Ms Batt said the reductions’ “huge impact” would lower the region’s skill base. “The nature of how it is being done is concerning because it doesn’t discern between frontline staff,

who are supposed to be exempt and support staff.” “It’s running resources across all the programs and we think there’s further pain to come. “The Government has avoided questions on why it has no jobs plan for Geelong when the government is the leading job cutter.” A Government spokesperson had not replied to a call for comment when the Independent went to press.

in brief Snake loose A “FREE-ROAMING” corn snake in Corio has prompted state wildlife officers to appeal for information about illegal possession of reptiles. A Department of Sustainability and Environment spokesperson said the North American snake was among “high-risk invasive animals” that must be controlled to prevent development of wild populations.

Lara success ABOUT 14,000 patrons attended last week’s “biggest yet” Lara Food and Wine Festival, according to organisers. They said MasterChef star Matt Preston, who attended to judge an Ultimate Chef Challenge, described the event as “now one of Australia’s top three food and wine festivals” with Melbourne and Noosa.

Watching grass RESEARCHERS are literally watching grass grow off the Bellarine Peninsula, according to a Deakin University scientist. Dr Tim Smith said a team of marine scientists had begun a four-year project to investigate how seagrasses reproduce and “bounce back” from disturbances.

Parents must control children, says top cop BY MICHELLE HERBISON PARENTS who fail to “exercise effective control” are responsible for increasing youth crime in Geelong, according to the region’s new top cop. Inspector Gary Bruce said tackling youth crime was high on his agenda as Geelong’s police service area commander. Other priorities included family violence and road incidents, he said. Insp Bruce attributed Geelong’s recent increase in youth offences and alcohol-related incidents to a change in young people’s attitudes. “There’s an element of young people in particular who are roaming around the streets in the middle of the night,” he said.

“For a lot of those offenders, traditionally you would be saying parents should know where they are and they should be at home. “Being a parent, I know it’s difficult. Some parents are trying their hardest and sometimes it just doesn’t work.” Insp Bruce said Geelong police would work with the departments of human services and education on prevention initiatives. He looked forward to working in his new role for “at least five years”. Insp Bruce replaced Chris Gawne who took over after Phil Swindells became ill last year. Insp Bruce said he was back in uniform after a career involving mostly detective work.

He first worked in Geelong as a sergeant in 1989 after transferring from Melbourne. “The last five to seven years I’ve been working on strategic crime issues in the western region, working with management to try to reduce crime,” he said. “I did this job for a few months six or seven years ago. While a lot of the issues remain the same, I think there are more pressures than before in terms of trying to achieve good results for the community.” Insp Bruce believed police had successfully made central Geelong safer than 15 years ago. But traffic accidents were still a problem in the region, he said.

“Geelong has for a number of years been in the top 10 police service areas for traffic incidents. We continue to have accidents caused by negligence and failing to comply with the road rules.” Insp Bruce said he would put more police on the region’s roads. He would also target family violence. Insp Bruce attributed a recent increase in family violence reports to police strategies. “Domestic violence was substantially under-reported and we’ve worked extremely hard over the last few years to increase reports to Vicpol,” he said. “We’ll ensure repeat offenders are the main focus.”

Immigrants set to deliver ‘economic windfall’

Input: New multiculturalism advisory council members Gary Thompson, Michael Martinez and Eddy Kontelj. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 79262 “I can see new businesses we can see that post-war immibeing established in the region gration was only a success story. “This is just the next chapter, as immigrants become economic contributors. Looking back although I believe we are better

positioned to understand it and embrace it these days.” Cr Kontelj was this month named as one of five local appointments to a new regional advisory council on multiculturalism. “This is an opportunity to have input into policy and the way government manages multiculturalism in the future,” Cr Kontelj said. “The landscape changed a lot in the last five to 10 years with new and emerging Asian and African nationalities arriving here.” Cr Kontelj said the committee would advise state government on funding gaps and priorities.

423352-FB21-9

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG’S economy is poised to thrive on immigration, according to a councillor. Eddy Kontelj said the city had an opportunity for a postwar-type boom with the right understanding of its immigrants’ potential. The Barwon south-west region had the state’s highest proportion of residents from non-English-speaking countries, he said. Cr Kontelj believed their economic potential was underestimated. “We need to ask how can we benefit from immigrants and open up more areas of prosperity,” he said.

Top of city set for investment God investment in upgraded services and infrastructure. Mr Roberts said plans included three and a half storeys of underground car parking, an extra 65 inpatient beds, a private emergency department, a rehabilitation service and two new surgery theatres. The redevelopment would create 130 equivalent full-time jobs and 120 in construction, he said. Mr Roberts will be the inaugural speaker at a series of workshops to encourage central Geelong business investment. “We want to stimulate thinking about what leverage can be

extracted from this development,” Mr Roberts said. “While it is geared to service operations, I’d like to see vibrant and risk-taking businesses taking up these opportunities. Ward councillor Barbara Abley urged businesspeople to attend the workshops. “In the same way that developments such as the TAC building have done, (the hospital redevelopment) is likely to stimulate new supporting businesses. The first workshop begins 5.15pm Wednesday at City Hall.

BY CHERIE DONNELLAN NEIGHBOURHOOD Watch’s Geelong branch is embracing the digital age, according to the program’s police liaison officer. Senior Constable Andrew King said he created a Facebook account and page called Eyewatch Geelong as part of a statewide police initiative to revive the Neighbourhood Watch program. “The Facebook initiative is only new but we’re already seeing some great results.” Sen Const King said Neighbourhood Watch volunteers were dwindling after former Victorian Police Chief Commissioner Simon Overland changed the program’s structure two years ago. “The program took a body blow because many volunteers were resistant to the changes,” Sen Const King said. “We lost about 50 per cent of the volunteer base in larger areas and about 50 per cent within the smaller areas too.” Former Commissioner Overland ordered Neighbourhood Watch groups to align with police service areas, effectively merging the branches. Sen Const King said volunteers resisted the changes, fearing reduced services to their communities. He said the former program was “outdated” because many statistics discussed at monthly meetings were up to five weeks old,

Eyes on crime: Sen Const Andrew King inspects the new Facebook page. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 79274 making them “more of just a gossip point”. But the Facebook page allowed him to give Neighbourhood Watch members “virtually-rightthis-very-second information”, he said. The new technology made Neighbourhood Watch “highly proactive”. “We post things like current crime information and good news stories to keep the community informed,” Sen Const King said. “The way we see it, our 350 plus Facebook friends are like

350 volunteers who are constantly aware of what’s going on in their neighbourhoods.” Sen Const King said social media was the way forward for Neighbourhood Watch programs. Twitter accounts and texting services were next, he said. “I think if we interact with younger generations in a medium they use, they will become more passionate about it.” Sen Const King said the Geelong-based social media initiative was one of five in the Victorian pilot program.

Donations ‘overrunning’ aid program BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A ROTARY club depot organising overseas aid containers needs help with its transport bills after becoming “overrun” with donations. Rotary Club of Geelong donations coordinator Anton van Doornik said sending each container overseas costs about $3000. “We have five containers on the go and it’s unusually busy. We rely on donations to pay for the transport and shipping,” Mr Van Doornik said. Mr Van Doornik said up to 30 Rotary volunteers sorted, packed and loaded donations at the depot behind North Geelong’s Osborne House each Tuesday. “Last week we loaded a boat in a container for Vanuatu and a purpose-built trailer for a rebuilding “Raise funds for Barwon Health to improve patient care and facilities for women and children in our region”

project at Sariri Village in Papua New Guinea. Mr Van Doornik said donations

included $40,000 worth of optical equipment, medical gear, computers, sewing machines, bicycles, portable generators, a cement mixer and a tractor. Volunteers sorted donated clothing, crockery, cutlery and books, with unusable donations recycled. “We had volunteers out collecting books from Deakin, medical equipment from Bupa and desks from Ashby Primary School this week,” Mr Van Doornik said. “It’s all equipment and goods that is surplus to requirements and comes from Rotary clubs all over Victoria as well as local organisations. “In the past we’ve sent an ambulance and four-wheel-drive vehicles.”

Growth forces code shake-up BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN INTRODUCTION of new suburbs around Geelong has prompted an Australia Post review of postcodes for the region, according to the organisation. A spokesperson said 19 suburbs previously covered under the region’s 3221 postcode would getnew postcodes from Sunday. A 3217 postcode would cover the new suburbs of Armstrong Creek and Charlemont, the spokersperson said. The number would also cover Freshwater Creek and Mt Duneed, which would change from 3216. The spokesperson said other new post codes were: Bellarine

3223; Wallington 3222; Moolap 3224; Fyansford, Stonehaven and Murgheboluc 3218; Batesford, Moorabool, Lovely Banks and Anakie 3213; Staughton Vale 3340; and Separation Creek, Wye River, Kennett River, Grey River, Sugar Loaf and Wongarra 3234. “Mail for the 3221 postcode covers almost 1500 square kilometres and is currently delivered from four mail facilities,” the spokesman said. “Due to the size of this area and the need to cater for future growth, Australia Post is assigning additional postcodes. “This enables us to plan for expected population growth in the area.”

The spokesperson said the changes would improve sorting efficiency to enhance accuracy and timeliness of deliveries. A12-month transition period would include a free mail redirection for affected residents and businesses, the spokesperson said. “This will give customers plenty of time to advise their contacts of the new postcode and will enable our business customers to use up existing stock of letterheads, labels and packaging.” The spokeperson said the new postcode system would also help emergency services to respond to enquiries.

buckets & bouquets

Home nursing – by locals, for locals. I love caring for people at home, where I can help them become healthier and happier. That’s why I’m a nurse with RDNS (Royal District Nursing Service) here in the Geelong region.

BOUQUETS to great singer John Rowles for including Geelong Performing Arts Centre in his farewell tour after many years in Las Vegas. Helen, Lara

I’m really proud to be part of a team of RDNS nurses who live locally and care for local people. As more people age, we are committed to helping them enjoy the comforts of home for as long as they can. Call us today to find out about our wide range of nursing services, ready to be delivered to your door.

BUCKETS to a young painter who said paint costing $300 was so quick drying he did two coats at once and that his work would last 15 years. Word of mouth. Done In A Day, Ocean Grove

BOUQUETS to Geelong and Royal Children’s hospitals, ambulance officers and everyone else involved in the treatment of Tori after a jumping castle accident on the weekend. She has fully recovered. Special bouquets to a woman who comforted me at the scene of the accident. Dorothy, Lara

BUCKETS to contractors working on public properties for intimidating and bullying residents. You ought to be ashamed of yourselves. Upset, Hamlyn Heights

BUCKETS to a male motorist who screamed abuse at me when I drove around him at a Newcomb shopping centre. The foul language continued as he followed me into a shop. Unfortunately, every village has one. The world would be better without lowlives like this. JB, St Leonards

BUCKETS to a heartless swine who hit a Labrador-cross on Wolseley Gve last week. Just so you know, the poor thing didn’t make it. I hope you’re happy. Bouquets to the neighbours who came to lend a hand and blankets. It was nice to finally meet you. Disgusted, Bell Post Hill

BOUQUETS to all the staff at Geelong Hospital and its special care unit. Your compassion and care for premature babies is outstanding. Thanks for making my stay so wonderful. Special thanks to my stylist Patrice, Dr Glen Davies and Corrine. Baby Taj, Ocean Grove

BUCKETS to Unhappy (Buckets and Bouquets, February 4, 2011). A threemonth warranty isn’t a licence to call our office after hours to rudely and unreasonably bark demands. If you had let me help I might have been able to organise someone to attend the next day – a public holiday. Business I’d Rather Not Have, Newtown

BOUQUETS to everyone who helped me when I was involved in a car accident on McClelland Ave on March 1, especially the two kind ladies who looked after me until the ambulance arrived and who contacted my family. Jenny, Norlane

BOUQUETS to Carol and the volunteers who ran North Shore Junior Cricket Club’s presentation day. Anyone could see a lot of work went into the day. All the children involved had a wonderful time and the entertainment was superb. Michael, Norlane BUCKETS to a man who took for his own business mulch donated to a primary school. LM, Belmont

BUCKETS to hairdressers who take revenge on client pensioners only needing occasional cuts or perms. One timid world of disagreement and the client is shorn before they can say ‘help’. How many other ladies have suffered this indignity? Shorn, Newcomb

Big queue for $45m project “The significant funding contributions made by all levels of government are testament to the importance of the project to the Geelong community,” Cr Granger said. “We are in the final stages of appointing a project manager and currently reviewing the tenders received for architectural design. “Once the appointments are made work will commence on the planning and design phases of the project.” City of Greater Geelong has contributed $20 million to the Geelong Library and Heritage Centre. State and federal governments have contributed $15 million and $10 million respectively. Council adopted the project as

its number-one funding priority when seeking funding from higher levels of government. Council argued that the city’s population had outgrown the 50year-old library, which it expected to attract as many as one million visitors annually within five years. The redeveloped facility will include a full library with internet access, reading and multimedia collections, community spaces and zones for children and adolescents. The upgraded heritage centre component will have improved storage and display facilities. Council has also revealed investigations into including a cafe and retail space within the project.

Crew fired up for dragon boat titles BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN SIX GEELONG paddlers have been selected for a Victorian team to contest a Australian Dragon Boat championship starting on Sunday. The six will compete in the state dragon boat competition over a 500-metre course at Melbourne’s Docklands Harbour. Geelong’s representatives are Aileen Phillips, Ross Parker, Mal Anderson, Neil MacArthur, Rob Chester and Lauren Vallance. Ms Vallance said the six were all over 50, with three having previously contested national titles and the remaining trio new selections for the team. “We’ve been training hard, travelling to Melbourne weekly to join the rest of the team. There will also be club versus club races ranging from 200 metres to 2000 metres.” Geelong Water Dragons club organised a Give Where You Live dragon boat regatta last year, with hopes for 20 corporate teams in 2012.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN CONTRACTS for Geelong’s $45 million library and heritage centre project have attracted large fields of contenders, according to City Hall. The City recently awarded a $210,000 contract to Slattery Australia as one of 12 firms competing for the project’s quantity surveyor role. The project manager contract attracted a field of 19 candidates, while 32 firms are vying for the architectural design services contract. Acting Mayor Cr Cameron Granger said the project represented one of the City’s largest capital projects.

part of Australian Plants Society, now boasting an estimated 1200 members in Victoria alone. Links have been forged with Geelong Field Naturalists and Geelong Environment Council. The club was involved in major plant projects including Elcho Park Golf Club and Ocean Grove Nature Reserve. “There was a lot of enthusiasm for native plants in those early days, even though they were hard to come by,” Harry said, “so people learned how to

propagate them from seeds and cuttings and often swapped plants to build up collections. “It’s a lot easier to obtain a greater variety of native plants these days – there are whole nurseries dedicated to them.” Harry said the group encouraged good-natured competition for bragging rights. “We organise trips to the outback to observe what’s around and every time it makes you realise what a great variety of plants we have. “There are outings to differ-

ent gardens. We’ve visited Cranbourne Botanic Gardens, Anglesea Heath, Brisbane Ranges and Inverleigh Common. “We have some members with excellent know-how developed over the years and you learn from the veterans of the club. “We also hold working bees at rail trails and nature walks.” Harry said more information on the club was available by emailing apsgeelong@gmail .com or visiting apsvic.org.au.

“BUY AUSTRALIAN” is a well-worn slogan these days but a group of Geelong plant lovers are hoping “Grow Australian” becomes just as popular. The Geelong group of Australian Plants Society runs an annual autumn native plant sale as part of its campaign for more indigenous flora. President Harry Webb said the beauty and variety of native plants hooked new members. “We promote Australian plants because Australia has the best flora in the world,” Harry said. “We’re an active group and keep ourselves informed on the latest news and trends on Australian natives. “I only have a small garden but I have 200 different plants in it, such is the variety available.” The group’s regular meetings include a “specimen table” for which each member brings from their garden a sample of flora and tells its story. “There are so many advantages of native plants,” Harry emphasised. “They attract native birds, propagate plants by spreading the seed and are natural to the environment. “We leave the exotics alone.” The group formed in 1966 as

Travel slashed WHY IS it that South Geelong Railway Station, which has a much smaller percentage of idiots, gets a bike security shed but North Shore does not? With one’s bike tyres slashed on a regular basis, naturally one ends up driving to North Geelong station like everyone else. M Clark Norlane

Turn off to Geelong I RECENTLY visited the beautiful city of Geelong with some friends from Canada. It is a city to be proud of, with a magnificent art gallery and several museums of interest, although we could not find any shops in the CBD selling postcards of Geelong. The only drawback was North Shore Railway Station; not much of a welcome to overseas visitors. The Overland train was too long for the platform, forcing it to stop twice to enable passengers to get on or off. The station is in the middle of nowhere with just a small shelter on the platform. Heaven knows how you could keep dry in a downpour! The station seems surrounded by a cyclone fence with a barbed wire topping and no numbers to call a taxi. Full praise to the two volunteers who attend rain, wind or shine to greet people when they disembark. While public servants sit in their air-conditioned offices, these faithful volunteers are out there fulfilling a job without pay.

Cost of chestnuts LEIGH Adamson (Letters, March 23) keeps trotting out tired old hoary chestnuts. He repeated the mantra about the badness of fossil fuels. What evidence was he relying on to make such outrageous claims? Logic would suggest that if fossil fuels were so bad for us governments would have banned them long ago. He also claimed that extreme weather events “will continue to worsen.” On what science data did he base his claim? In case Leigh Adamson is unaware, extreme weather events have declined 30 per cent over the past three decades despitee increasing CO2 levels. The decline is well-documented in Indur Goklany’s book The Improving State of the World. What poses a serious threat to our children’s future is not anthropogenic carbon emissions but massive spending on an unproven theory. Spending billions on unreliable renewable energy will undermine a prosperous future for our children by sending thousands of Aussie jobs offshore and driving up the cost of living. As for Leigh Adamon’s fulsome support for renewable energy, let’s do the sums. The following are the costs of manufacturing per megawatt/hour: coal $79; gas $97; wind $200; and solar $500. This means the average household coalfired energy bill is $3000 but solar power would cost $14,000. Rushing in with a price on carbon will only send jobs offshore, raise living costs and commit us to spend tens of billions of dollars on an alleged problem that might not turn out to be as serious as first thought. Alan Barron Grovedale

Once-lucky hunters I BUY the vast majority of my family’s meat from local butchers and fishmongers. I insist on free-range birds and animals wherever possible. It is important to me these animals have enjoyed a contented, natural life before they were harvested, just like wild game harvested by hunters. On the few occasions when the pressures of modern life permits, I hunt and fish to supplement the family larder.

I find the experience of getting back to nature rewarding. For me it is a reality check and reminder of who we really are and where we came from. Responsible recreational hunting and fishing are wholesome activities enjoyed by millions of people worldwide. Those who oppose hunting and fishing have sadly lost touch with nature, reality and reason. Those who oppose duck hunting should also consider the following two facts. First, ducks are opportunist breeders. The present favorable conditions after consecutive years of major floods have triggered major breeding events. Duck populations have exploded. The downside is that as floodwaters recede and food supplies dwindle these populations will no longer be sustainable. Surplus populations simply starve to death, sometimes in their millions. During the short open season hunters harvest a miniscule percentage of this annual surplus. These birds are not wasted; they are respected in the wild and appreciated on the plate. Secondly, only one country has ever banned any form of game bird hunting. You guessed it, Australia, the once-lucky country. Gary Matchan Mount Doran

Borefield questions BARWON Water’s Carl Bicknell (Letters, March 23) stated I was wrong to suggest the Anglesea borefield had failed. Could he explain, then, why the borefield was shut down? Also, when will it resume operating? Mr Bicknell also stated that our water supply was set for the next 40 years. I presume, then, that the Wonthaggi desalination plan will safeguard our need for water. How much will this water cost compared to our normal catchment supply? What is the base source of the desalination plant’s power? What happens to the salt removed? Does it go back to sea? How long will the plant last and at what cost per day? When holding basins are made in our catchment areas there are no further costs, so surely this is the way to go. Most water falling in our catchment area now goes back to sea. It’s just common sense to make use of it. Cliff Winkler Torquay

THE RESIDENTIAL growth of “8000 Lovely lots” (Independent, March 23) added to a set-in-concrete Links Living Geelong Golf Club development of 320 allotments plus the expansion of Bannockburn and Batesford et cetera further highlights the need to upgrade North Geelong Railway Station. Lara, Corio, North Shore, Geelong and South Geelong are either chockers or have no development upside for what will be, whether we like it or not, an increasing commuter workforce. It needs to be recognised and acted upon that North Geelong should become a key rail transit link. Surrounding land remains available for the required upgrade to include car parking, a bus terminal and serious V/Line infrastructure, enabling, in the main, commuters to earn a dollar. Richard Worland Manifold Heights

Come on, Geelong, fix North Shore Railway Station so it is more-welcoming for tourists and visitors alike. Bronte Harrington Goodwood, South Australia

Roll up for holiday fun dren’s functions. “We have lots of birthday parties at the centre and the introduction of the separate skate park and forthcoming disco lounge and jumping castle areas have helped modernise the activities,” Raul says. In-line roller hockey is another feature at Newtown, with Geelong boasting Australia’s biggest independent roller hockey league. “Our social hockey leagues are currently playing finals with the new sea-

son starting up the first week after the school holidays,” Raul says. “Most of the social leagues run throughout the holidays, offering a great chance to give roller hockey a go,” Raul says. “The centre offers kids and adults a chance to get a bit active and have fun regardles of the weather.” Rollerway Newtown is at 6-8 Lambert Avenue, Newtown. More information is available at www.rollerway.com.au.

Safe indoor climbing for children at The Rock arents can find peace of mind at Geelong’s The Rock Adventure Centre during school holidays. The Rock offers indoor climbing in a safe and controlled environment where kids can keep themselves entertained while enjoying terrific exercise at the same time. Parents can also try the The Rock’s climbing walls to discover a fun way to improve fitness. Indoor climbing uses all muscles simultaneously while providing an excellent low-impact fitness regimen. Climbers also enjoy boosts to their self-esteem as they overcome challenges and reach their climbing achievements. Parents who don’t want to climb can still be involved by holding their children’s safety ropes while they climb to share in their achievements. The Rock is also ideal for grandparents searching for ways to entertain grandchildren during holidays. Instructors are always available to help show beginners the ropes.

P

The Rock’s climbing walls are designed to accommodate all levels, from beginners through to expert climbers. The Rock also has a huge bouldering area with short climbing walls that are only a few feet above a padded floor, so no safety rope or partner is required. The Rock will be open from midday, seven days a week during school holidays. Parents can relax with a coffee while the kids experience the thrill of climbing during the supervised holiday sessions. Ideal for primary school-aged children, the sessions run from 2pm to 4pm Monday to Friday during holidays. Bookings are recommended. For more information visit www.rockadventures.com.au, phone 52213101 or visit The Rock Adventure Centre at the extreme river end of Pakington Street, Newtown.

Parents can send their children up the wall for a change at The Rock Adventure Centre.

eafood will be on the menu for families this Easter, with the local catch providing mouthwatering inspiration for home chefs. The offshore and bay areas of the Geelong region produce some of Australia’s best table fish. Species such as King George whiting, flathead, gummy shark and snapper rate highly on most list of fine-eating seafood, with plenty of other options also available. Most of the best local species are also still generally in season or at least abundant enough at Easter to guarantee fresh supply. Home chefs should also remember that Fresh is almost always best when it comes to fish, although some shark species, including gummies, often improve after freezing. King George whiting is the pick of the local crop in terms of food quality, offering finely textured, delicious white flesh. King George can be prepared in many ways, although techniques capitalising on the quality and flavour should be top of the list. Given the relatively small size of whiting, fillets are generally preferred over baking whole fish. Deep-frying in a light beer batter is always popular with King George whiting, while a simple dusting with flour before quickly frying in a pan or on a clean barbecue plate also makes the most of the flavour and texture. The same preparations are also suitable for flathead, another species prized for its generally delicate flavour. Locally caught flathead is usually sold as “tails”, which is almost always in fact fillets from whole, small fish. Small snapper are also ideal prepared as fillets in much the same way as whiting and flathead, while larger specimens lend themselves to serving whole. The trend toward meal presentation of whole snapper owes as much to visual impact as flavour – guests are always impressed at the sight of a large, well-prepared fish emerging steaming and aromatic from an oven or covered barbecue. Another advantage of serving large snapper whole is economy,

Andrew’s blind snap at fame Follows said he struggled as a younger adult to acknowledge his disability and became reclusive. But Eamon gave him a new lease on life. “It was as if a whole new world was opened up to me. I go everywhere now, even at night, but I never used to do that. “It’s really helped my photography.” Follows said he was working on new technology with RMIT University that he hoped would encourage other visually impaired people to get into photography. He and RMIT electronics engineer Glenn Matthews were developing a voice box with Bluetooth technology to send instructions between cameras and smart phones. “It’s ground-breaking technology,” Follows said. “I actually think it will aid people with all sorts of disabilities with photography.” Follows and Matthews planned to unveil their first prototype at the Edinburgh Festival. Follows said the support for all of his projects had been “phenomenal”. “Geelong Arts Society has been a major sponsor of my endeavour to make it to Scotland.” Follows had also received sponsorships from Ian Potter Foundation, Federation Square and Guide Dogs Victoria. Follows said his exhibition would be at Shearer’s Arms Gallery on April 1, with a meet-and-greet from 3pm.

BY CHERIE DONNELLAN FROM the other side of a lens, Andrew Follows looks like just another photographer. Except he’s blind. Declared legally blind at the tender age of five with degenerative condition retinitis pigmentosa, Follows said his disability had only made him more determined. His upcoming exhibition in Geelong will showcase his two passions: photography and community development. Follows first combined his degree in community development and his skills as a photographer during the 2009 Black Saturday bushfires. “I helped coordinate the relief programs in Alexandra and Narbethong and, of course, I took photos as well.” Follows used his Black Saturday experiences for an exhibition showcasing his photos of the region before and after the fires. His exhibition, Journey of Changes, was “a huge success”, he said. Follows hoped sales from his Geelong exhibition of Journey photos and luminous night landscape prints would help him raise an additional $5000 for a trip to Scotland’s Edinburgh Arts Festival in July and August. Follows said he would be unable to undertake the journey alone. Guide dog Eamon would have to travel with him. “He’s like my soul mate,” Follows said. “I can’t remember what it was like to live without him.”

GPAC’s taste of Marmalade BY MICHELLE HERBISON COMEDY fans can expect a laugh a minute for 100 minutes at Geelong Performing Arts Centre this Friday night, according to Trevor Marmalade. The former Footy Show funnyman will join fellow Australian comedian Russell Gilbert on stage in their A to Z of Comedy show. Marmalade said the pair had “so much fun” with the show at the Comics’ Lounge last year that they had taken it on the road. “We’re going to squeeze as many laughs as we can into 100 minutes. The alphabet format lets us cut the show down to the jokes.” Marmalade said the show’s structure allowed the pair to “play around” with 100 topics. “It’s just a loose format that gives us room to basically do what we want.” The North Melbourne footy club fan was looking forward to visiting Geelong “this time”. “Darryl Somers still invites me to the footy once a year.

APPROVED ROVED CA CARS

As part of our test we did some moderately harsh bush running, including wading it down a river and climbing and descending hills made damp by recent rain. The designers have given the 2WD Evoque the same ground clearance as the 4WD, which means it can tackle dirt tracks and the like. It also maintains the macho look desired by SUV buyers. The four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine in the Evoque we tested produced 110 kW of power and had decent performance without too much turbo lag. Fuel consumption around town was impressively low at seven to nine litres per hundred kilometres. In this economy version of the engine (it’s also offered in a sports model with 140 kW) it’s possible to get consumption under six litres per hundred on the highway without too much pussyfooting. Range Rover Evoque is a thoroughly modern crossover vehicle. Being designed by Land Rover, a company that has specialised in serious 4WDs for over 60 years, it’s no surprise Evoque is good off-road as well as on.

BY ERIC BLAIR voque is the smallest and lightest Range Rover ever made, reflecting both a changing market and the need to keep fuel consumption and emissions to a reasonable minimum. It breaks new ground for the British marque that pioneered the concept of a 4WD that can be both competent and comfortable. Prior to the introduction in 1970 of a vehicle simply called ‘Range Rover’ it was considered normal for working vehicles to be just that, trucks with a crude 4WD system to give them traction in harsh off-road areas. Land Rover was very much part of that scene until it came up with the idea of adding another model to its lineup, one that could be used as both a family station wagon and a working 4WD. The rest of the world’s auto makers eventually cottoned onto the idea, coming up with similar vehicles, many of which became nothing more than family station wagons that never travelled off sealed surfaces. For years, Range Rover resisted this so-called soft-roader trend, but has now produced a vehicle called Evoque. A stylish wagon that – horror of horrors in the minds of the purists – can even be bought with only 2WD. The good news is that the 2WD Evoque can be bought for just under $50,000 in its most basic variant – though it’s not hard to play the options game and add something like 50 per cent to the price. The upmarket design and quality of materials is impressive and we can see wealthy owners of Autobiography Rangies buying a couple of Evoques for their kids based on its interior styling alone.As well as the good suspension setup the Evoque uses many of the electronic traction aids from the full-size Range Rover and the Land Rover Discovery.

op-flight European car service centre Europe Automotive has added another string to its bow. Europe Automotive is now the approved Michelin agent for Geelong West, adding the top tyre brand to its already impressive automotive stable. The dedicated and specialised service centre for Volkswagen, Audi and Mercedes models can now supply and fit a range of Michelin tyres. Europe Automotive also uses the Hunter wheel alignment system and Sice run-flat tyre changer, as recommended for all major luxury and European vehicles, including VW, Audi and Mercedes Benz. Adding a range of tyre services means Europe Automotive can conveniently supply, fit and align vehicles as part of regular servicing. Co-owner Adam Hunter said Europe Automotive offers dealership-level service, advice and support for the growing number of European marques. “We have fully qualified VW and Audi technicians using up to date equipment,” Adam says. “We use the leading independent vehicle diagnostic equipment and software from Autologic, genuine parts and Castrol oils, as recommended by VW, Audi and Mercedes Benz. “There’s no need to go to a dealer when you can get all your automotive needs at Europe Automotive. “All our work is guaranteed to maintain your new car warranty.” Europe Automotive offers a range of services to the discerning prestige car owner at a competitive price. Europe Automotive is at 43 Autumn St, Geelong West, phone 5222 2555 or email service@europeautomotive.com.au. Clients can also book a service online at europeautomotive.com.au.

Hunter Cuthill introduces an online option for bookings C

lients can now take advantage of the convenience of online vehicle service bookings at Hunter Cuthill. Top European marques Jaguar and Mini receive the ideal service as part of a complete range of car care at Hunter Cuthill. The approach of winter means cooling system safety checks become a priority, according to coowner Adam Hunter. “If you are planning a trip to the snow, for instance, its worth checking coolant levels to ensure your engine is protected,” Adam says. “We also have a new battery load tester for complete battery health checks to ensure you don’t get stranded.” Hunter Cuthill provides dealer level service and repairs for Jaguar, Mini, BMW and Land Rover. The independent automotive repairer also extends its well-established professional care for a range of other vehicles as well. “We have the latest computer diagnostic equipment needed for all the latest British and European models,” Adam says. “We stock a wide range of service parts to minimise inconvenience to owners and get cars back on the road promptly.” Adam and co-owner Gordon Cuthill have extended automotive service training on Jaguar and Mini, building on their combined 45 years of experience in BMW and Land Rover. “Hunter Cuthill is a fantastic dealer alternative with more competitive pricing,” Adam says. “As an added value, the customer can talk directly to the technician so they understand exactly what we have done.” Hunter Cuthill is at 9 Autumn St, Geelong West, phone 5229 4299 or email service@huntercuthill.com.au.

Snapper, kingfish in memorable moments ALEX Latter enjoyed one of those memorable days on the water during the past week. Fishing off Portarlington with soft plastics, Alex landed five snapper to 6.3kg for one of the best hauls of the week. Paul McGregor also got among the snapper in 18m of water out from St Leonards. Paul caught three to 3kg each along with a 7.5kg gummy shark. Huge numbers of kingfish were taken around The Rip area. A variety of methods worked, especially jigging with knife jigs or trolling squid imitations. Good numbers of salmon were also found from The Rip back to Queenscliff, with trolling using small occy skirts or casting soft plastics into the surface action returning constant hook ups. Soft plastics anglers should consider fishing the cut at Queenscliff where the trevally have been in reasonable numbers. Curl tail grubs and Turtleback worms are proven performers at this location, with the best time two hours either side of high tide. Swan Bay’s entrance remained one of the most consistent locations for a variety of species. Whiting, squid and garfish have been the mainstays. Squid numbers have declined over the past few weeks, although Henry Gordon still managed to take bag limits in his past three outings. Some of Henry’s squid were well over 2kg, with the best action just off Sorrento at first light on Yamashita 3.5 size jigs. Damian Evans fished one of his favourite destinations, Wilson Spit, where he caught snapper of 3kg or better on his past three outings. Damian said the bite started just on sunrise. Anglers drifting the Leopold spoil grounds with soft plastics

On the bite BRIAN LONG found snapper fishing slow but thankfully good numbers of quality flathead made the trips worthwhile. The inshore line of the spoil generally returned the best captures, with Gulp minnows the lure of choice. Noel Harper fished the rocks at Point Lillias to find small snapper until just on dark when all went quiet. Then in an hour Noel caught three snapper around 1.5kg each on fresh squid baits. Paul Fitzgerald fished soft plastics on the Geelong waterfront to land a couple of nice flathead along with a snapper of 2.4kg. Paul reported that the fish came on the bite just after dark, with Turtleback worms doing the job. Freshwater reports came from far and wide, making prospects for Easter good. Deep Lake continued producing trout on both Powerbait and worm. The fishing was best in calm conditions, with the southwest side of the lake most productive. Ken Alford caught and released a number of rainbow trout last weekend, his best close to 2kg. Lake Tooliorook yielded trout and redfin, the latter responding well to live minnow baits. Some large captures were reported, making the lake possible our best freshwater option. Lure anglers enjoyed some outstanding captures on ice jigs. Ballarat’s Lake Wendoree

Golden moment: Alex Latter with his 6.3kg snapper from Portarlington. could be worth a trip, producing rainbow trout on Powerbait and worm. Terry St John fished the wall at West Barwon Reservoir for two nice brown trout over 1kg on worms fished under a bubble float. Terry said another angler fishing lure close to the right end of the main wall also landed two fish, one estimated to be almost 2.5kg. Lake Fyans should also be a prime fishery at Easter after being consistent for months. Both trout and redfin have been taken either land or boat-based or boat. The best options this weekend depending on the weather

would be kingfish at Queenscliff during tides in the middle of the day. Try knife jigs in the 180g size or troll 25cm white squid. For freshwater, hit Lake Tooliorook at Lismore with Powerbait on a running rig for the rainbow trout or live minnows, which can be netted locally, for the redfin. A boat is an advantage but the redfin can still be caught from the shore with long casts. Send reports and photos to info@raylongtackle.com.au or visit Brian at Ray Long’s Fishing World, 105 Shannon Ave, Manifold Heights.

Freo hosts ‘new-look Cats side’ GEELONG will begin its 2012 AFL season minus a handful of premiership players but with a new breed of young and older Cats, according to their coach. Chris Scott told AFL.com.au that dual premiership player Josh Hunt was out with a calf strain but hopes were high for star veteran Corey Enright to recover from an Achilles problem. Scott said Enright had enjoyed a “fantastic pre-season” despite failing to appear in the NAB Cup. “He’s proved himself to be a very resilient player for a long period of time. He really only had a minor setback for about 10 days, so we’ll certainly pick him for our squad and take him over with us. “I can’t guarantee he’s going to play because we’ve got a few training sessions to get through.” Scott confirmed 29-year-old ruckman Orren Stephenson would debut in the Fremantle match as a partner for Trent West to take on Dockers giant Aaron Sandilands . “It’s a huge challenge for even the best ruckmen in the competition but for two inexperienced guys it is a big ask, but we think it’s possible.” Scott said several younger players would also take the field in Western Australia following the retirements of a bevy of premiership players last year and the injury to Hunt. Scott was excited about the Cats’ chances in 2012. “I think we all are,” he said.

Corey Enright

Josh Hunt

“Even though we’ve had a slightly shorter pre-season than some other clubs it feels like the last month has dragged on a little bit. “I think everyone – players, coaches, supporters – are ready for the real stuff.” Scott expected Fremantle to be more defensive under new coach Ross Lyon. “I think it’s difficult to make huge changes in a three-month period, but they’re certainly going to defend a little bit differently. “There are some obvious changes and I’m sure there are some subtle changes as well.” “We expect them to be really hard to score against,” he said. “That was a hallmark of the St Kilda sides. “We’ve got to make sure we can score against their defence but defence is certainly a priority for us as well.” Lyon told his club’s website that Sandilands was a certain starter against the Cats at Patersons Stadium after doubts over his fitness leading up to the match.
