Never too old for Port festival activities BY MICHELLE HERBISON A PORTARLINGTON festival next week will encourage elderly residents to continue gardening into old age. Portarlington and District Gardening Club’s Judy Margolis said the Active Living/ Ageing Well Expo would focus on practical and easy gardening tips for seniors. “Quite often people feel they are less able to garden in the same way as they age,” Ms Margolis said. “We’d feel very sad about people giving up on their garden altogether.”

Ms Margolis said club members would offer advice on solutions including raised garden beds. A demonstration of propagating plants from seed would help address financial problems with gardening for seniors, she said. “Another problem with ageing is people have much more limited income. We’ll have free plants for people to take home and also pots and seeds and things to get people started on propagating.” Staying in Portarlington’s Jenny Wills

will be a proactive approach to burgeoning population growth,” he said. Mr Fendyk, a council election candidate for Beangala Ward, expected the process to take “a couple of years”. “This will be an issue I’ll be pushing from a Bellarine Community Health perspective.” Barwon Health chief executive officer Professor David Ashbridge said he supported initiatives to improve local services. “Our population is growing and ageing. Working closely with our partners is important to ensure our community has access to the right care at the right time and in the right place.” Prof Ashbridge said it was “difficult to comment at this early stage” on how a Bellarine Peninsula facility would ease pressure on Geelong Hospital’s emergency department. Beangala ward candidate Warren Smith said the facility was a “great idea” that he would “support 100 per cent”, especially as the population grew. Fellow candidate Carlo Missio said a recently-opened doctor’s clinic proved the need for more medical facilities in the area. Incumbent ward councillor Jan Farrell said council was yet to see any plans and she declined to comment on the proposal.

said her group had arranged more than 20 exhibitors to encourage seniors to remain active in their community. They included representatives from banks, Geelong libraries and community groups including Woofers and Walkers, Probus, Rotary and the town’s op shop. “People will have the chance to try Nordic pole walking, massage and bike riding,” Ms Wills said. The Active Living/Ageing Well Expo will be at Parks Hall, Newcombe St, Portarlington, from 1pm to 4.30pm Tuesday.

BY MICHELLE HERBISON BELLARINE Community Health is investigating locations for a 24-hour emergency clinic on the Bellarine Peninsula. Chief executive officer John Fendyk said he had discussed plans for a 24hour sub-acute primary health care facility with state and federal governments. “We’ve already had some discussions and we’re having more,” he told the Independent. “The (Bellarine Community Health) board is being supportive and we’re looking at having discussions with government regarding support for funding.” Mr Fendyk said the clinic would service Bellarine Peninsula residents for “minor emergency” procedures including X-rays and plastering. “We’re proposing a model like this because we don’t think we’ll get a hospital on the Bellarine at this point in time. We’re not planning at this stage to make it a residential-type service.” Mr Fendyk said the facility would “go a long way to meeting the community’s needs” as populations grew at Ocean Grove, Clifton Springs and Drysdale. “It fits in with where government direction and policy is.

Retailers get free Shop Local message

Poster boys: The Independent’s Steve Clark and Fleetwood Print Group’s Mark West with the Shop Local Geelong posters. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 88774

GEELONG’S new campaign to encourage retail spending is spreading to stores across the region. Fleetwood Print Group is helping promote the Shop Local Geelong message, printing posters to complement window stickers with the campaign logo. The free promotional material is available to retailers wanting to support Shop Local Geelong and stamp themselves as businesses committed to the highest standards of customer service. An Independent initiative with City of Greater Geelong backing, Shop Local tells shoppers why they should spend locally rather than online or out of town. The campaign also encourages participating retailers to deliver excellence in customer service. Shoppers can nominate retailers for a monthly Shop Local service award, featuring coverage in the Independent and a $1000 advertising package. Nominations, including the submitters name and contact details, should be emailed to editorial@geelongindependent.com.au, mailed to Shop Local Geelong, PO Box 407, Geelong, 3220, or faxed to 5249 6799. Retailers wanting to participate in the campaign should phone the Independent on 5249 6700.

Remote-control car ‘provoked assault’

1049078-KC39-12

Neighbour bashed the noise disrupted his sleep about 11am on May 6. The victim swore at Weber, saying it was “after 10”, the court heard. Weber responded by punching the victim in the side of the head with a closed fist, causing him to fall to the ground and apparently become unconscious. “He felt a hard impact on the right side of his face and said ‘I don’t remember even being knocked to the ground’,” Snr Const Moroney said.

BY MICHELLE HERBISON A REMOTE control car’s sound “like a jet engine” drove a sleeping shift worker to punch his neighbour in the head, a Geelong court heard this week. John Weber, 44, of Tallinn St, Bell Park, pleaded guilty in Geelong Magistrates Court to recklessly causing injury. Police Prosecutor Leading Senior Constable Kerrie Moroney told the court Weber confronted his neighbour after

Weber “made full admissions for the assault” to police. “I’d had enough. I shouldn’t have hit him”, he told police. Weber’s defence said the remote-control car was “twothirds of a metre” long and petrol-driven. “(Weber) had said to the neighbour ‘There are other places you can use this’ but he persisted in driving it up and down the road in front of my clients and other neighbours’ houses.”

The defence provided Magistrate Stephen Myall with a complementary letter from Weber’s Brooklyn employer and two from other neighbours for “an understanding of what these people put up with”. This was a “oneoff…extraordinary situation” and Weber’s first time in court, his defence said. Mr Myall convicted and fined Weber $1000.

EPA ‘silent on noise’ to find no action has been taken.” The EPA included the issue in its annual compliance plan as part of three local strategic initiatives for the Barwon south-west region. “A number of industries in the north Geelong area are potential contributors to recorded exceedances of State Environment Protection Policy,” the plan said. “EPA will do further investigation of noise sources in the area to determine the relative contribution of different premises and require appropriate improvements at each site.” Mr Trezise said the EPA assured him 12 months ago the issue would be rectified. “Skip forward to today and I’m disappointed to learn the issue is still an on-going concern,” Mr Trezise said. “I met with the residents on Monday and they expressed their anger. I completely understand their anger. “I have now convened a meeting for October 29 with the EPA and residents to put in place actions to ensure this is resolved as soon as possible.” An EPA spokesperson said residents were asked to record their observations of noise to help officers in the area monitor and investigate sources.

Institute redundancies MORE than 70 per cent of staff at Queenscliff’s Marine and Freshwater Research Institute have expressed interest in redundancy packages from next week, according to Bellarine MP Lisa Neville. She said the interest rate reflected the staff’s “loss of faith” in State Government and the institute’s management, with the redundancies to halve the number of researchers working at the facility.

Renter’s million A CORIO renter in her 50s has won $1.3 million, according to Tatts. A spokesperson said the woman, who wanted to remain anonymous, planned to buy a house and “treat” herself to a new car.

Death fine THE 2011 death of a 54-year-old man in a cellar of Birregurra’s Royal Mail Hotel has cost the venue’s operator an $80,000 fine in Geelong Magistrates Court. WorkSafe said Hillcrest Private Nursing Home failed to provide a safe working environment for the victim when he died of carbon dioxide poisoning while moving empty beer kegs still connected to gas cylinders.

Red wins GEELONG Wine Show judges have awarded their top prize for the 2011 event to a red wine from the Bellarine Peninsula.

Local Liberal boss calls for elections investigation BY NOEL MURPHY GEELONG’S Liberal Party boss has called on the state branch to investigate whether the party is funding candidates in the city’s mayoral and ward elections. State director Damien Mantach confirmed Pat Peel had written to him raising concerns the party’s “good name’’ was “being dragged through the mud’’ because of reported Liberal

links to Geelong Chamber of Commerce boss Bernadette Uzelac’s mayoral campaign. “The Geelong branch wishes 104/Liberal HQ to clearly and publicly dissociate itself from any support of the candidate…as at the moment it appears to the wider community that this is, at least tacitly, an endorsed Liberal party candidate,’’ Mrs Peel wrote. She also raised concerns whether

“any Liberal party funds have been allocated directly or indirectly to any participating candidates’’. Mr Mantach said he had seen the letter but it was meant to be private correspondence. “The fact that’s found its way to a journalist indicates something else entirely.” The Independent has also seen Corio Federal Electoral Conference September meeting draft

minutes referring to a “Liberal Party Local Government Taskforce’’. The taskforce would assist “various candidates in…City of Greater Geelong, Surf Coast Shire and Golden Plains Shire’’. Prominent Geelong Liberal Helene Bender said the taskforce only helped or encouraged people who might be interested in running for council. The assistance was “definitely not financial’’, she said.

Hospital ‘healthy’ GEELONG Hospital is “performing well” despite federal funding cuts, according to State Government. Health Minister David Davis said the hospital had handled increased admissions in the year to June while reducing its elective surgery waiting list in the first quarter of this year despite Canberra forcing Victoria to provide more funding.

Program’s award A GEELONG learner driver mentor program has won a state award for road safety, the TAC has announced. A spokesperson said the Geelong L2P program won the joint TAC and VicRoads exellence award at a Victorian Community Road Safety Partnership Program Conference in Melbourne last week.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN NORTH Geelong and Rippleside residents are frustrated at EPA inaction over their long-standing noise complaint. A neighbours group of more than 20 residents says it has been working with the agency for more than 12 months to rectify the “deafening” noise. Group spokesperson Patsy Sanaghan said the residents had turned to Geelong MP Ian Trezise for help. She said the main noise culprit appeared to be a Godfrey Hirst factory in Corio Quay Rd. “It’s a humming drone that goes on all night and sometimes it’s impossible to sleep,” Ms Sanaghan said. “Residents have driven around the area at various times of the night to trace the noise. There are other industries in the area, but nothing like the noise coming from Godfrey Hirst.” “We set up a relationship with the EPA and were assured our concerns were valid. They even set up noise loggers in resident’s homes. “But we’ve now lost confidence in the EPA to address our concerns. “This problem has been reported for many years. It’s not the first time residents have gone through this process

Women begin life journey with a little help BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A GROUP of disadvantaged women gained a new lease on life this week as part of a Journey to Work project. The 20 women aged 16 to 25 were treated to makeovers and motivation to build their confidence and chances of finding jobs. BacLinks manager Sheree Holdsworth said many participants had left school early. “Their socially and educationally disadvantaged backgrounds pose significant barriers to them seeking and gaining employment,” Ms Holdsworth said. “The young women receive professional presentation advice, including assistance in selecting work wear along with hair and makeup lessons from The Gordon. “They also receive career guidance and participate in several workshops designed to build their selfesteem. Ms Holdsworth said BacLinks’ second annual Journey to Work had a number of positive outcomes. “Last year 13 long-term unemployed young women participated, with eight starting work, three beginning training and two others began counselling in an effort to improve their lives.” Ms Holdsworth said the program needed donations of “good quality” corporate clothing and accessories. Donors could phone 5249 8989.

Running shoes are often your best weapon when it comes to getting fit and running a personal best. But if you get the fit wrong, they will undo all your hard work very quickly. Having spent good money on a great looking pair of running shoes, clients will often do battle with them for many months before conceding that they are doing themselves injury. Assessments done when you are stationary may not give real insight into your running gait. Remember, whatever your age, your body has adapted itself around all your shortfalls. Sometimes choosing a runner that allows your foot to find its own way, could see you running injury free, and at your PB!

will bring about $100,000 per plane into the region,” he said. “Multiply that by the number of planes and planes going out with loads both ways with people and with freight. “This is an opportunity to fill in the map, it’s a key economic driver for the future. It’s not just about Avalon but also about people. “It’s massive.” Avalon management is in talks with at least three airlines and could host international flights within a year after gaining federal approval late last week. “Now we’re concentrating on getting an airline to Avalon,” Mr Giddings said. “The Government fast-tracking the process allows us to build between now and getting the airlines here.’’ Mr Giddings declined to reveal which airlines Avalon was negotiating with but said travellers could probably expect flights to Asia and the Pacific to be the first international destinations offered at the airport.

BY NOEL MURPHY AVALON Airport is poised to become the transport hub for a new international food bowl. Federal Government approval for Avalon to host international flights underpins a “massive” opportunity for the region, and south-east Australia, to export produce to the world. While all eyes are on tourist and business passengers through Avalon, it’s what goes on in the belly of the planes that could drive the regional economy as it diversifies from its traditional heavy manufacturing. Avalon chief executive officer Justin Giddings told the Independent 70 per cent of Australia’s freight entered the country in the belly of international planes. “We’re on the edge of a food bowl that is an enormous opportunity,” Mr Giddings said. “Freight will be fundamental.’’ Produce king Frank Costa said the potential for freight transport in the underbelly of planes at Avalon should be compared with business taking place at Melbourne Airport.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A LOWLY-RANKED Geelong football club project was favoured for federal funding over better credentialed projects, according to an audit report. Australian National Audit Office report said Regional Development Minister Simon Crean personally elevated the Skilled Stadium development. The report said he failed to provide sufficient reasons for the change. “The reason did not outline how it had been identified as more meritorious than the other 40 projects that were ranked equally or the 76 projects that were ranked more highly.” The stadium and city’s library and heritage centre project each received $10 million in the first Regional Development Australia funding round last year. The library and heritage centre was the highest ranked local project, the report said. The second highest ranked project was East Geelong

Community Hub, lodged by human service organisation Karingal. The selection of the stadium project also cost the city’s library and heritage centre $5 million, with its funding reduced from the $15 million initial application. The report quoted Mr Crean as saying his decision was “based on my knowledge and advice as well as its strong business case and the leveraged funds for both the library and football proposals”. The football project was the only one of the 41 applications in the lowest ranked band considered for possible funding, the report said. The football project was considered against an advisory panel recommendation because it was not yet ready for funding. Mr Crean rejected the Karingal submission because two other projects in Geelong had already been approved for funding, the report said. Queensland Nationals Senator Barnaby Joyce said the audit

report finding on the football club project was “damning”. “Good community regional projects in regional Australia have a better chance of receiving funding from the Labor party if they are in Labor electorates or associated with a major football club,” Sen Joyce said. “My advice to them is: move to a Labor seat and sponsor a major footy team. “More than 60 applications were ranked above the football stadium but Minister Crean approved this funding anyway.” Mayor Cr John Mitchell said he wasn’t aware of the report. “The library and heritage centre was our priority project but once it leaves our hands we have no control over funding decisions,” he said. Karingal chief Daryl Starkey said he was also unaware of the report. “The Karingal project has received two State Government grants and we’re hopeful of Regional Development Australia.”

Open letter to the communities of Greater Geelong and the Surf Coast Christian College has developed an enviable reputation for the quality of its education and pastoral care, the quality of its growing facilities and its well-rounded graduates. So it should be no surprise that Christian College has grown to be one of the Geelong region’s largest schools with over 2000 students and employing more than 250 staff. Many students are bussed into Christian College each day with more than 300 students coming from the Surf Coast region. As a result of the high and increasing demand from Surf Coast families, the College Board has recognised the need to build a new “Kinder to Year 9” campus within the Surf Coast community, similar to the existing campus in the Bellarine region. Five years ago, after consulting the Surf Coast Shire, Christian College purchased 15 hectares of land in Torquay to house the new campus in a corridor west of Duffield’s Road, Torquay. The school has put significant resources into planning the campus, which amongst other features, will be the first 6 star green star campus in Victoria. Ultimately, the new campus will be built to house up to 600 students which will not only alleviate much of the pressure on the existing College demand for enrolment places but also help to provide for the demand for education opportunities which arise from the expected significant residential growth of the Surf Coast region and the nearby Armstrong Creek precinct. The most important step for the school is for the land to be rezoned “special use zone” (which does not allow for residential development). To achieve this, the School has lodged an application for a Planning Scheme Amendment with the Council. Our aim is to have the Campus operational as early as possible, the earliest being 2015. Over the past 30 years, Christian College has touched the lives of many thousands of students, staff and their families. We are proud of this cohesive and supportive Christian College community and believe our commitment to this new Surf Coast campus will be the beginning of another exciting chapter in our partnership with the Surf Coast community. The new Surf Coast campus will have a positive impact by: > Giving 600 Surf Coast students a further choice of education; > Spending $60 million in the local community; > Providing assets for shared community use;

The proposed Christian College campus in Torquay will set the benchmark for new green school buildings in Australia.

> Providing construction and long term jobs for staff and local service providers; > Taking hundreds of cars and buses off local roads between Geelong and Torquay; > Showcasing the first 6 star green star rated school in Victoria; and > Producing zero net carbon emissions. Our local Commonwealth and State members of Parliament have expressed their positive support for this new Surf Coast campus and we welcome this bi-partisan support.

Daryl Riddle CEO

The new Christian College campus will produce zero net carbon. It will be the first 6 star green building school in Victoria. It will be a quality environment for learning.

James Shirley Board Chairman

Christian College looks forward to keeping you informed of progress in this exciting new opportunity. If you are interested in obtaining further information about Christian College Geelong generally or in particular information and concepts for the new campus, please visit: www.christiancollege.vic.edu.au

Crews complain in city of pay rip-off

A pirates’ ransom Purcell said. The dispute also follows suicide bids and allegations of beatings, bullying, food and safety cuts and other unpaid wages. Mr Purcell said the claims were commonplace among overseas shipping crews visiting the port of Geelong. The Independent last week reported the attempted suicide of a Filippino seaman aboard Korean hell ship K-Coral while in Geelong. The federation alleged the man had been subjected to beatings and harassment. He was hospitalised for three

days at Geelong after slashing his wrists before being repatriated to Manila. Mr Purcell said the COS Glory was unable to produce a collective bargaining agreement meant to be kept onboard at all times. “It’s going to Karachi now but we have some ITF staff there who we’ve included in our correspondence, so they’re in a bit of bother. “They need to pay the crew at least their September wages ‌ they needed to pay at least $80,000 before they left the port of Geelong and the rest in Karachi.â€?

Thousands of followers have hitched up with a mystery Facebook site titled ‘Geelong’, featuring heritage photographs of old Geelong locations and enterprises. At National Wool Museum, an exhibition titled Wish You Were Here! has been pulled together from Geelong Heritage Centre, Queenscliff Maritime Museum and private collections to highlight yesteryear in a vibrant showcase of picture postcards. A pocket-sized Illustrated Guide to Geelong and District, a facsimile of a 1908 Geelong Progress Association book and on sale at the museum, has been “almost walking out the door�, according to staff. Old postcards are also selling fast at the exhibition. The various collections are replete with bicycles, horses, carts, streetscapes of Victorian facades and verandahs, lush gardens and parks, sea baths, crinolines and suits and ties, beach and riverside scenes,

FURNITURE Mill Markets AUCTION boss ‘sacked’ SUNDAY 28TH OCTOBER 12PM START

BY MICHELLE HERBISON MILL Markets administrators have sacked former boss Ian Ballis. The Independent revealed in August that Sellers Muldoon Benton had taken control over the Mill Markets business and its properties operating at Mackey St, North Geelong, on the Bellarine Hwy, Newcomb, and at Daylesford and Ballarat. Administrator Ken Sellers said he hoped negotiations with “a number of parties” to sell the business and properties could finalise within a fortnight. “(Mr Ballis) has ceased being an employee and as a consequence he won’t have keys or pass codes or anything like that,” Mr Sellers said. “It depends on exactly what happens. We’re hopeful of selling pretty much all of the businesses then the properties can either get sold as part of that sale or subsequent. “A number of parties are all

Out: Ian Ballis offering slightly different permutations. Some are interested in the business and properties and some just the businesses. “We’ll look at the deal which works best for us financially.” Mr Sellers was confident the Mill Markets businesses could continue to trade as they were without shutting. “I’m pretty sure that’s definitely not going to be the case.” Australian Securities and Investment Commission appoint-

ed Seller Muldoon Benton as administrator on July 3 to Mr Ballis’s companies Geelong Markets and Daramking. The administator is seeking to reclaim the companies’ debt owed to ANZ bank. Mr Ballis was the sole director of both companies. He took over Geelong Markets from Edwin Dimmick in 2007, co-directing with Ian Begley for the first month. Mr Ballis also ran three other companies as a sole director of Geelong Plant 5 and Newcomb Mill and co-director of Valley Mills with Basil Macula. Mr Ballis paid $5.1 million for the two Geelong properties. Mr Sellers said in August that he was assessing a number of expressions of interest in the business. Mr Ballis told the Independent in August that it was “mistaken” about his business dealings. “Don’t listen to too many rumours,” he said.

Council stays part of lobby, seeks ‘advice on database’ One of the refinery’s major waste streams – tank sludge – is turned into compost using a Geotube® and used on the 60,000 plus trees planted in Shell’s buffer zone.

News from Shell

REDUCING WASTE SENT TO LANDFILL

Achiever: Geelong’s Paul Kimber receives his award from Mary Davis.

Award for helping homeless

During the past 10 years, Shell’s Geelong refinery has reduced waste sent to landfill by more than 98%!

A VOLUNTEER who has spends over 40 hours a week helping Geelong’s homeless has won a regional achievement award. Organisers said Paul Kimber beat a “strong field of nominees” to win the Medibank Health Participation Award in the Regional Achievement and Community Awards. He was among eight category winners in the awards, presented at Bendigo on Saturday night. About 320 guests watched as Mr Kimber received his award for his work as manager of The Outpost, an outreach centre based in central Geelong. Medibank regional manager Mary Davis praised him for his work providing emergency assistance to the homeless. “The awards recognise community com-

Environmental Team Leader, Stuart Olsen, says that this achievement is an indication that the refinery is serious about recycling. “The refinery has been working for many years on a strategy to move to a position of removing its big waste streams going off-site,” says Stuart. “I’m proud that this has finally been achieved with spent catalyst, tank sludge and caustic waste now being recycled or reused,” he said. “As well as the environmental benefits, there are also substantial cost savings.”

mitment and contribution and we congratulate Paul Kimber and all of the nominees for their achievements,” Ms Davis said. “We are delighted to sponsor these awards that have unearthed many community champions.” Mr Kimber works at The Outpost in an on-call basis 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help the homeless with food, medical assistance, accommodation, counselling and referrals. He oversees 80 volunteers providing more than 24,000 meals a year. Other awards covered categories including achievements in trades and careers, business, the environment and health. Winners received a $2000 bank account or television coverage for their organisations.

GEELONG’S council has decided to retain membership of Committee for Geelong despite misgivings over database misuse. The Independent reported last month that Cr Barbara Abley had flagged a notice of motion requesting that council resign its membership. Cr Abley drafted the motion following unauthorised use of the committee’s database for a fundraising invitation from mayoral candidate Bernadette Uzelac. Council instead decided to seek assurances from the committee that its member list would remain private. Councillors voted in favour of a motion saying the membership of the Committee for Geelong “collectively has a right to privacy”. “This unauthorised disclosure of membership and contact details violates not only the members’ right to privacy but also the operating principles of the Committee for Geelong. “Council requests written assurance from the Committee for Geelong that it has reviewed and strengthened its operating principles to prevent further incidences.” The motion requested the committee to advise City of Greater Geelong’s manager of administration and governance before October 27 of the changes. The committee is a lobby group charging council about $20,000 in annual membership fees.

IMPROVE YOUR GARDEN

In future, the remaining 2% of the refinery’s waste streams which currently go to landfill will be managed through an on-site transfer station Shell plans to build.

Cancer event relaying call for entries AN ANNUAL relay raising funds for cancer research is seeking participants to pound a course at Deakin University’s Waurn Ponds campus. Geelong Relay for Life volunteer committee chair Anne Miller said the event was a chance for everyone to “join the cancer fight”. “Relay for Life is a chance for us to celebrate with cancer survivors and remember loved ones lost,” Ms Miller said. “The 2013 Geelong Relay for Life will be a great night out with family and friends. “We welcome volunteers to join the organising committee and other local supporters are needed to rally friends and family to participate in the event or to provide support through sponsorships.”

In a flap: Bellarine Secondary College team members help launch Relay for Life 2013 with Cancer Council mascot Syd the Seagull. Deakin will host the relay on over $230,000 More information about the March 16 and 17. Last year’s is available at event, with teams running and event walking a course overnight, raised relayforlife.org.au.

At the end of last term, 25 Year 10 students from Oberon High School attended the Bogong Outdoor Education Centre at Falls Creek to participate in a “Learn to Ski” camp. In what for many was a fairly foreign environment, students in Oberon’s Student Leadership Program were involved in the physical challenge of learning a new skill. This provided the basis for the beginning of a leadership journey. Throughout the week students met and collaborated with students from Heywood Secondary College, working through the responsibilities of life at camp, learning about aspects of sustainability and the importance of looking after our unique alpine environment. These new challenges allowed students to extend themselves and develop their leadership skills. As one student commented ‘It was one of the best experiences of school so far.” Students will continue through term 4 to develop projects with a focus on citizenship and service within the wider community. This will see them interacting with local neighbours and civic organisations. As principal Tim McMahon explained - “We are confident that many of these students will move on to leadership roles within their senior years at Oberon and beyond. Opportunities such as these often provide the motivation and desire to make a difference.” Physical challenges were part of the “Learn to Ski” week at Bogong Outdoor Education Centre.

Other innovations included a “smart” cricket ball that could measure revolutions through the air and a gym measuring muscle force to provide accurate data on injuries to help decide fitness levels. “There is a massive gap between research and inventions and what’s getting to market,” Mr Hill said. “There’s lots of work being done in sports apparel, equipment, data analysis, management, and sports administration. “This all fits with the carbon fibre research and development being done at Deakin University, involving Quiksilver and CSIRO materials science. “We’re talking wearable computing capabilities with application to sports technology and data capture of sports performance.”

buckets & bouquets BUCKETS to the person who took my handbag while I was at McDonald’s in Ryrie St. Keep the money if you are in poverty but please return the bag with the other contents. You have my address, so find some pity for a struggling pensioner. Age Pensioner, Norlane BOUQUETS to Maryanne and the staff at Geelong Private Hospital’s cardio ward, Alison and staff at Geelong Hospital’s cardio ward and Lainie in the intensive care unit for their wonderful care of our husband, father and grandpa during his recent operation. M Family, Belmont BUCKETS to bus drivers who travel too fast and close to cyclists. Not only is this unsafe, it forces us into the gutter. Blasting your horn is also unnerving. Respect all road users more. Concerned Cyclist, Manifold Heights

BUCKETS to a lowlife who stole a Bell Park family’s much-loved blue Birman cat (Buckets and Bouquets, October 5). Have a heart and return this loved pet to its family, which misses its cat. Fellow Pet Owner, Highton BOUQUETS to Danny for coming to my rescue on the night of October 12. You were amazing and I’m so grateful you were there at the time. I cannot thank you enough. Ruth, St Leonards BOUQUETS to OG Technology’s John for his help and prompt assistance with our laptop. It was great to find such a friendly, helpful tradesman. H and M, Ocean Grove BOUQUETS to an emergency vet in South Geelong. I didn’t see the tree – what a mess! The rabbit escaped too but recovered well. Staples out, hair growing back. Dad’s pleased, too.

BUCKETS to council election candidates wasting money and trees on election pamphlets. No one cares what you promise because you’ll never make good on it anyway. Stop the garbage and get on with it. Angry Residents, Highton BOUQUETS to a good Samaritan at City of Greater Geelong for not only picking up my lost wallet at Bell Post Hill’s shopping centre but personally returning it to my door on October 8 and calling back later to make sure it had been received. Lauren, Ceres BUCKETS to a boring, dyed-in the-wool wowser whose demeaning religious rectitude revealed itself when he unfairly criticised a priest (Buckets and Bouquets, October 12). The wonderful priest epitomises Christian love. He has the heart of Jesus, the compassion of Mother Theresa and the wisdom of Solomon. SD, Geelong West

BUCKETS to a person who inconsiderately opened her car door in Hitchcock Ave, Barwon Heads, on a busy Friday afternoon, forcing traffic to stop. I could easily have taken out you and your car door if not for my good brakes and patience. Annoyed Commercial Driver, Ocean Grove BOUQUETS to Safeway Waurn Ponds staff, especially Angela who is always helpful and friendly and even shows me where to find items. Bouquets also to Karen on the check-out. She is polite and friendly. Safeway should hang on to such great staff, which is why I shop there. Happy Shopper, Grovedale

Game if you are: Ben Kersten at the chessboard. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 87931

Join the club JOHN VAN KLAVEREN WHEN it comes to games, chess is just about the grand master of them all. One of the oldest strategy games in the world, it has become the basis for many other pastimes. It is thought to be the most popular game in the world, with hundreds of millions regularly setting up the chessboard. After all, chess is probably the fairest game in existence – it has no dice spoiling good play because of a bad roll and no umpire to penalise one side with a poor decision. It’s the evenness that attracted Geelong Chess Club vice-president Ben Kersten to the game. “I’ve played a lot of strategy games, both older and modern, but there’s nothing as well-balanced as chess,” Ben explained. “Other games just don’t have the same nice feel, or have pieces with awkward movements and rules. Chess feels more natural.” Despite its ancient traditions, the game is being challenged by the digital age, with computerbased and on-line gaming gaining in popularity, particularly among junior ranks. “Playing on the internet means you lose the face-to-face aspect of competition,” Ben said. “You can’t eyeball your opponent, a bit like playing poker. You might make a blunder but a sneaky smile could suggest it was

actually a clever move.” To counter the junior drain, the club has kicked off a junior section as well as introducing the classic game into regional schools. “The schools program has gone from strength to strength,” Ben said. “It has expanded the club to the majority of schools and there are more than 100 kids playing. “Chess helps with concentration, especially in maths and science, similar to the benefits of music programs. “It’s become a reward for the kids because they get time out from classes to participate.”

The Geelong club hosted the 2011/2012 Australian championships, attracting national and international players. “It was a major event for Geelong because Victoria had not hosted it for 10 years,” Ben said. “We also have regular interclub tournaments with Ballarat and there’s also the Victoria country championship.” Ben said the club had its own program of tournaments through the year along with social chess, weekly meetings and coaching. Geelong Chess Club is based at the Courthouse in Lt Malop St. Ben said prospective members could phone him on 0421 871 859.

I WRITE regarding the October 5 Geelong Independent’s front page story, headlined ‘Council stooges’, in which former Geelong mayor and prominent local Liberal Jim Fidge argued voting should be first past the post rather than preferential. Back in the 1995 council election Mr Fidge was a declared candidate but withdrew his nomination prior to polling day, attacking the preferential system as “a dog’s dinner, an exercise in guesswork and the whole election seems a clumsy first-up effort”. He also criticised the state Liberal government and requested that the election be stopped. Then again as a failed candidate in the 2001 election he stated the preferential voting system was “ludicrous, it becomes a lottery and this is not sour grapes”. After 17 years of whinging on preferential voting surely the common sense approach by him would have been to speak to the Liberal Local Government Minister instead of making media comments and debating the election model at The Geelong Club’s forum.

HAD ABSENTEE ratepayer Shane Dowling’s advocacy for Mayor John Mitchell (Letters, October 12) been for a ward vacancy one would have been supportive of a committed and diligent municipal representative at that level. A successful popularly elected mayor will need superior vision, business nous, brinksmanship and preparedness to challenge local governance practices and to motivate councillors to get up and about above and beyond ward housekeeping duties. Unfortunately, Mr Dowling’s broad-brush support for Cr Mitchell doesn’t stack up. A rusted out CBD that Cr Mitchell claims is not all bad, talkfests upon talkfests, council meeting transparency and debate usurped by in-house briefings, a flagged non-interactive convention centre encroaching on public space, an inability to recognise and fully harness Deakin University’s untapped CBD potential and an acquiescence by Cr Mitchell that council doesn’t have the power for this and that seem to have slipped under Mr Dowling’s radar.

Keith Fagg ticks all the boxes and is City of Greater Geelong’s best bet for the inaugural mayoral term. While he needs to become less parochial and step aside from business interests from the get go, he’s a successful and savvy guy most capable of breaking down local governance inertia, reinvigorating the CBD through his rooftop accommodation and parking alternatives while remaining accessible yet unencumbered by political baggage. It will be to the detriment of the region if a preferential voting structure stops him getting over the line to best face the challenges of this upcoming mayoral term. Richard Worland Manifold Heights

Put Coryule first INCUMBENT Mayor John Mitchell has written to Coryule Ward residents asking for our support. He claimed he would fight for the Bellarine Peninsula. But he did not list a single achievement in our ward. He said he’d stand up for us but his record doesn’t match his promise. That’s on top of council publication CityScope, which last week listed $2 billion in investment but not a single project on the peninsula. Is it any wonder residents feel that council is Geelong-centric? We desperately need a strong voice in Coryule to get the representation we deserve. As a candidate who lives and works in the ward, I stand ready to serve the local community to make sure we’re no longer ignored by the rest of the council. Dean Kennedy Coryule Ward candidate Portarlington

Bully of Brownbill BULLYING and intimidation has reached new heights in City of Greater Geelong council elections in Brownbill Ward. I have received dozens of phone calls from ratepayers who have received personally addressed envelopes from a person with access to the electoral role and impersonating an organisation that doesn’t exist. Brownbill residents are deeply outraged

1049657-KG42-12

The Independent, Friday October 19, 2012

by the offensive behaviour of this faceless person who has circulated the vicious hate material making untrue statements. This kind of bullying and intimidation throughout the election campaign should not be tolerated and dedicated people should not be frightened to represent their community on council or as a volunteer. As a lifelong resident of Geelong I have been involved in the community for over 21 years protecting thousands of residents and businesses and helping raise tens of thousands of dollars for Geelong Hospital, Rotary clubs and community and sport clubs. I will continue to fight even stronger to support and build a safer community for residents. Angelo Kakouros Brownbill Ward candidate Grovedale

Dome and dusted TO MY knowledge no mayoral candidate other than John Mitchell has mentioned their stance on the proposed design for Geelong’s Library and Heritage Centre – The Dome! I have judged it on three-point criteria. First, it is an interesting and eye-catching design that could well become an icon, for which I give it a ‘yes, maybe’. Second, I judged it as a library. Even now bookshops are disappearing as the internet takes over – and I am speaking as an author. How will we read books in five years when the new building opens and in 55 years when it reaches its use-by date? As a library, no. Thirdly, the cost of $20 million from us, $15 million from State Government and $10 million from the feds. Council is expanding at four times the rate of inflation and four times our population growth, so consequently I am advocating substantial pruning of our council rates and spending. We should keep the $20 million in our pocket and redirect the state and federal grants into more essential and demanding projects, so it’s no on a cost basis. All-up, a big no, not on my watch.

Questions for council WHILE walking, in Kardinia Ward I have been asked questions about council. How many people and councillors know all council by-laws and where are they written? Could clubs on public land share it with the public? How many people know how to write and take pictures for council about safety issues in a way that will get a response? How many people know how to put a petition to council to get a response? Are letters to council better hand-written, typed letters or emailed? Is there a booklet on how to send letters and pictures so as to get a response from council? Could council share with companies the trimming of trees in areas where they touch power and phone lines? They should do the whole lot while they’re there, not just one tree at a time, and come back in a week? Could council get hard rubbish collections back? I just think of Black Friday here. Could council help reopen the historical Breakwater railway station and open two more at Grovedale and the back of Waurn Ponds? Jeff Schwarze Kardinia Ward candidate Belmont

Time for leadership

Councillor was willing and Abley WELL done, Barbara Abley. You should feel very proud of all that you have achieved over the last decade on the City of Greater Geelong council team. Your balanced input as mayor and councillor is appreciated by all ratepayers. If all council members represent their constituents as you have, this city will be wellserved. Pricilla Wright Newtown

Farwell: Barbara Abley

I CONGRATULATE councillor Barbara Abley, who is standing down after many years as a City of Greater Geelong councillor, including several years as mayor. Her considerable efforts were always for the good of the community, particularly in the fields of health, ageing and

community services. I also support Coryule Ward candidate Monica Hayes, standing for the first time in a Geelong council election. Ms Hayes, a resident of Portarlington for 20 years, is a former Essendon councillor, including a year as mayor. Like Cr Abley, she has a

Worthy mayor THE CATCH with voting for candidates in an election when you don’t know any of them personally is that you are forced to rely on impressions. These can be policies that strike a chord, a photo that makes you think he or she looks like someone who could be trusted or, best of all, a story you hear that makes you think this is the sort of person you would be happy to have representing you. In my case, the game-changer was hearing that mayoral candidate Keith Fagg and brother Barry had worked with the Salvation Army for eight years from 2002 to provide a shelter for homeless people in Geelong. After his family company bought a motel on the Surf Coast Hwy, Keith Fagg, a member of The Salvation Army’s Geelong advisory board, was asked whether the family would be interested in supporting the army in a new venture to provide emergency accommodation. The idea was to provide respite for homeless people in the motel while army workers tried to help them find longer-term accommodation. Until I heard that story my only knowledge of

background in health, community and aged care services and has made a substantial contribution in these important areas on the northern Bellarine Peninsula. She has served on Bellarine Community Health’s board and is a long-serving member of Portarlington Community Association. Coryule needs a councillor with such interests and who if elected will listen to the community and make a genuine effort to improve these services through their work on council. Good luck, Ms Hayes, in the forthcoming election and may you go on to represent not only the electors of Coryule but the whole of the Geelong community as did Cr Abley with her great contribution as a councillor. Anne Cowden Clifton Springs

Give us your best

Keith Fagg was through his Mitre 10 stores and the favourable press they received from time to time for sponsoring local groups and events. A man prepared to use his wealth and influence to help people going through a bad patch would be a worthy candidate for mayor and someone who would lend dignity to the office. He’ll have my vote. Keith Almond Hamlyn Heights

A better Buckley ARE BUCKLEY Ward residents better off today than they were four years ago? In the past four years council has delivered Waurn Ponds LeisureLink and a library, Barwon Heads Skate Park, improvements to most kindergartens and a major upgrade of Grovedale Sporting Club Burdoo Reserve precinct. Council is building two new kindergartens in Buckley and construction begins this month on new Barwon Soccer Club facilities in Grovedale. Council delivered a Barwon Heads structure plan that allowed the town’s infrastructure to catch up.

WITH a new Surf Coast council coming, we need more accountability from councillors. Torquay is the gem of the Surf Coast and should have first-class facilities, not disasters. The first disaster is the toilet block in the Gilbert St, shopping centre, which is an overpriced abomination nobody likes. Who designed it and were they castigated for the result? Our representatives seemed have accepted second best. If it had been a private building council would probably have wanted it bulldozed. The second disaster is parking for the sports pavilion behind Torquay’s civic centre. The pavilion sticks up like a sore thumb in one of the windiest parts of Torquay. While adequate parking could have been arranged, some errant architect placed inadequate parking an enormous distance from the pavilion, making it difficult for seniors to access the facility. Did no one check these plans before the car park was built or did we accept second best again? New councillors, we don’t want second best in Torquay. Spencer Leighton Torquay

IF OTHER residents of Geelong, like us, are dissatisfied with the decision-making of council under the incumbent mayor the solution is to vote for the only viable contender: Keith Fagg. To do this we only need to follow Mr Fagg’s preference numbering. By doing this we would ensure he obtained more primary votes, reducing the likelihood of re-electing a mayor we simply don’t want. For the record, South Grovedale Community Action Group has had no contact with Mr Fagg. We simply believe we are entitled to better governance. The city deserves a new leader and genuine transparency, with its future decided by residents, not developers. Margarita Kumnick South Grovedale Community Action Group

Many other improvements have been made in Buckley. As chair of Geelong Regional Library Corporation, I’m proud council has doubled recurrent funding for library programs in the past four years. Do Buckley residents want a councillor who will support them in getting State Government to fully fund and fix Pioneer Rd, as promised? Do they want a councillor who will support them to get Waurn Ponds Armstrong Creek train station built right the first time, with most parking on the southern side and a linking bus service? Do they want a councillor who will support proper noise attenuation barriers when the ring road is complete? Do they want a councillor who will argue for more police and better public transport? I have advocated for these issues and will continue to do so. Cr Andy Richards Buckley Ward candidate Grovedale

Sweet on Queenscliff festival BY CHERIE DONNELLAN IMAGINE being a Geelong teenager followed around Europe by a film crew. That was the glamorous experience of Geelong Motown group Sweethearts earlier this year. The Independent spoke to two of the group’s backing vocalists, Geneva Burrill and Sarah Tolley, about performing to international audiences and filming for ABC’s Heart and Soul documentary while completing VCE. Tolley dubbed performing at Switzerland’s Montreux Jazz Festival and Italy’s Porretta Soul Festival in July an “amazing experience”. “Being with friends, touring the world and playing at major music festivals was fantastic,” she said. Burrill likewise enjoyed the limelight. “Yeah, it was cool that people thought we were famous because we were being followed by cameras.” Tolley and Burrill agreed being filmed was “strange and confronting” in the beginning. But Burrill expected the documentary to become a “good memento”. Since returning to Geelong Sweethearts’ members have been practising weekly to gear up for their performance at Queenscliff Music Festival in November.

Sweet sounds: Geelong’s Sweethearts in action.

“We’ve performed there for the last three years,” Tolley proudly declared. Burrill praised the festival, saying the group had “a great relationship” with the organisers. “The QMF organisers have set us up with workshops previously with artists who come in to teach us and work with us. “It’s just fantastic.” Burrill admitted the group’s regular performances at venues worldwide had earned them a “great following”. “To be able to do this while we’re still in high school is amazing.” Tolley summarised the girls’ experience in the band as a high point in music. “We get to explore Motown and soul – the roots of where all music has evolved – and we get to do things some long-time artists have yet to do. “What could be better than that?” Based at Geelong’s Matthew Flinders Girls Secondary College, the band has been together since the mid 1990s. The college offers band members the opportunity to study Certificate IV in music, the highest industry-based musical qualification available in Australian schools. Sweethearts will perform at Queenscliff Music Festival November 24. The ABC documentary is set to air April 2013.

BY CHERIE DONNELLAN MELBOURNE funnyman Lawrence Mooney confesses to having a “sense of the absurd” – and he thinks Geelong people have it, too. Mooney recalled driving past North Geelong’s Ray’s Outdoors with a sign out front saying ‘Now is the winter of our discount tent’, to paraphrase Shakespeare’s Richard III. “I thought ‘There’s a sign of life here’ and I laughed. I loved it,” he recollected. Mooney said he was “looking forward” to performing stand-up alongside Steele Saunders and Geelong-bred comedians Greg Fleet and Pete Sharkey at Courthouse Arts next Friday. “I haven’t decided what I’m going to throw at the folks of Geelong yet,” Mooney confessed. But he said audiences could expect “heaps of memories” and “pure gold”. “We’re going to have some fun.” Despite earning numerous awards during his comedy career, Mooney joked about not having a “real job” since his stint as a highrise window cleaner in 1998. Trying to define a real job, he reminisced that his daughter provided the definition. “When you get out of bed early,

put on a suit and leave the house,” she told him as an eight-year-old. Mooney also has actor, social commentator and writer listed on his resume. He “loved doing them” but conceded they “weren’t jobs”. Mooney recently co-hosted a 2012 London Paralympics ABC2 evening show, which shed “comedy, lightness and humanity” on paralympians. “Several paralympians told me that people stiffen up around them and speak to them like they have intellectual disabilities. “When we met them throughout the games they all had a degree of irreverence about their own disabilities and made jokes which showed just how normal they were. “It was fantastic to speak to them and laugh with them.” Mooney joked that he was typecast in his acting roles. “I was recently shooting, playing an English teacher that deals smack to kids – what a role,” he laughed. “I’m never going to get cast in the romantic roles because I’m known as the funny guy with the funny face.” Mooney will perform at Courthouse Arts on October 26.

ncouraging children to participate in organised sport and physical activity sets the foundation for a healthy and active lifestyle, improves social skills and boosts cognitive development. This is the lesson families all over Australia are learning through the Ready Steady Go Kids multisport program for two-and-a-half to six year olds. Ready Steady Go Kids is Australia’s largest and most reputable multi-sport and exercise program for preschoolers, with over 70 locations nationally and a growing presence globally. Geelong franchise owner Carmen Dodds says Ready Steady Go Kids offers a great way to promote a healthy lifestyle from an early age, which is particularly important in light of Australia’s obesity issues. “Ready Steady Go Kids provides a stepping stone for ongoing sporting careers and a lifetime of physical health,” Ms Dodds says. The program teaches children the fundamentals of 10 different sports in a fun, social and non-competitive environment. “Our young participants and their parents alike just love the program,” Mrs Dodds says. While focused on developing age-appropriate motor skills, the program also introduces the concept of sportsmanship by encouraging participants to take turns, play by the rules and cooperate with their peers. Ready Steady Go Kids is giving more local children the chance to participate in the program by offering a free trial class.

As well as encouraging participation and enjoyment in water, swimming lessons have many other benefits. A child familiar with water from an early age has an advantage over others afraid or inexperienced in aquatic environment other than the bath. Children who are happy and confident in water can think of ways to get out of any difficulties and will be more likely to learn to swim quickly, safely and enjoyably. Geelong Aquatic Centre offers an ideal environment for children and infants. The specialist learnto-swim facility has no distractions such as water slides or aqua aerobics lessons. • Children are also supervised when swimming. • The centre also offers: • warm water at 32C; • warm air to retain body heat; • passionate, caring, dedicated, trained staff; • a sequential, developmentally based, fun program;

• classes in developmentally appropriate age groups; • catering for individual needs; • colourful, well-equipped environment; • Austswim accreditation as a tierone school. Geelong Aquatic Centre’s Debbie Gill is an Austswim and Swim Australia course presenter in Australia and Asia. She also regularly speaks at national conferences where she keeps up-todate with industry information. “Being a competent swimmer is far more than a skill for recreation and enjoyment,” Debbie says,” it’s a skill that may save a child’s life. Geelong Aquatic Centre operates under the motto: Swimming lessons – a gift for life. “Every child must learn to swim,” Debbie says. Parents can contact the centre to enrol children by phoning 5222 5530 or emailing geoff@geelongaquaticcentre.com.au.

eelong Aquatic Centre believes its quality teachers, facilities and water make children smarter. The centre and students’ parents participated in national research under Griffiths University’s Professor Robyn Jorgensen, finding that earlyyears swimming made children smarter, more sociable and confident and better at interacting with peers. Children enjoy the aquatic environment at the centre while listening to teachers and following their instructions. The water provides a wonderful medium for children as young as infants to absorb a range of stimuli. Children can participate in learn-to-swim programs before they can walk. No other sport offers young children the same scope for participation. Geelong Aquatic Centre has parents in the water with their children from the age of four months.

t’s the personal touch that sets Keleman Motors apart. Gary Keleman has been in the business since 1982, so he must be doing something right. His care and attention to detail has enhanced his hard-won reputation in the car repair trade. The personal service includes a drop off and pick up service to the city. Gary is known as a Mazda specialist but his tried and true slogan, ‘Anything on any car’, sums up his approach. “We do all major and minor repairs, including exhaust, brakes, clutches and suspension,” Gary explains. “Plus we do the full range of upgrades and servicing, including air-conditioner re-gassing.” Gary and Mazda go back a long way, including top qualifications in the repair and servicing of the famous rotary engine. Gary uses only genuine parts in his new-car repair and servicing work. “This way our customers can be sure their factory warranties are not affected.” Gary says customers should be able to receive dealer level service without paying dealer level prices. “We’re always happy to give a quote so the customer knows exactly what they are up for,” he adds.

BY ERIC BLAIR illed as the world’s first hybrid sports coupe the Honda CR-Z could just be the car that takes the petrol/electric hybrid to an all new class of buyer adding driving enjoyment to the fuel savings and low emissions that have been the primary purpose of hybrids until now. Honda, the largest engine maker in the world, is committed to staying out in front through petrol/electric hybrid technology with the aim of cutting carbon dioxide tailpipe emissions by 30 per cent by 2020, based on year 2000 figures, and ultimately to zero with fully electric powered vehicles. Honda says the aim is to change people’s perceptions of hybrids as hitech vehicles with average performance and turn them into stylish driver focused fun cars. To this end the new CR-Z has effectively created its own category, one that we hope will be expanded to include other players. Styling of the Honda CR-Z is distinctive enough to attract quite a bit of attention from fellow road users. The rear glass roof and chopped off tail are reminiscent of the old Honda CR-X and the original Insight. The sporty, aerodynamic looking three-door coupe is powered by a 1.5litre i-VTEC petrol engine coupled with Honda’s Integrated Motor Assist electric system. Maximum power output for the combined petrol/electric system is 91 kW, peak torque is either 174 Nm (manual) or 167 Nm (CVT). Officially measured fuel consumption on the combined cycle is 5.0 litres per 100km (manual) and 4.7 litres/100km (CVT). On test our fuel consumption was 6.3 L/100 km, an impressive figure given that we made no real attempt at economy driving.

Green machine: The Honda CR-Z sports coupe adds driving enjoyment to the environmental benefits of the hybrid car. Carbon dioxide emissions are 118 grams per km (manual) and 111 g/km (CVT). Torque is paramount for most driving enthusiasts and, as with all pure electric or petrol/electric vehicles, there’s plenty of it at low revs meaning that it can accelerate sharply from a standing start. Add the high revs that are characteristic of Honda engines and there’s plenty to enjoy. ‘Sport’ mode increases throttle and steering responsiveness and increases

electric motor power assistance. ‘Economy’ mode tunes the system for optimal fuel economy including torque assist at low sepped. ‘Normal’ balances performance, economy and emissions to suit most driving conditions. Two CR-Z variants are offered – Sport and Luxury. Sport comes with a choice of six-speed manual and CVT while Luxury is CVT only. Honda CR-Z Luxury adds satellite navigation, reversing camera, panoramic glass roof, and leather-

trimmed and heated front seats. The front suspension is MacPherson strut and rear torsion beam, and the CR-Z runs on 16-inch alloy wheels and has a temporary spare. The new Honda sports coupe is 92 per cent recyclable, a figure that includes the battery pack, thus putting it on terms with a conventionally powered vehicle. Honda CR-Z does live up to its hitech hype with performance, ride and handling to go with its sporty looks.

spokesman encouraged Geelong people to attend the event to watch or to try squash. “A court will be set aside for beginners to try squash and get some free coaching and a sausage sizzle to make it a fun social day.

With the weather closing in, Tom Elliott, 40, upped the tempo to ensure that when the rain came down the run rate was sufficient to be ahead. When play was abandoned the Cats were 7/142 from 30.3 overs and a quick check of the calculators

Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE ensured the points were theirs. This week they travel to Richmond for another one-day fixture. In Geelong Cricket Association Highton got off to the perfect start in its match against North Geelong after opening bowler Scott McElnea, 2/34, removed both Magpie openers with only three runs on the board. From there experienced North Geelong pair Andrew Fergusson, 34, and Sam Hall, 52n/o, set

about resurrecting the innings, helping move the total to 3/98 from 31 overs. Unfortunately at that stage the heavens opened and no more play was possible. When play resumes tomorrow and with so many overs already lost both sides will need to play aggressive cricket if they hope to get their second win on the board. The division two match of the round between Waurn Ponds and Manifold Heights is precariously placed after 14 wickets fell on day-one. Batting first, the Sharks were well placed at 1/67 with Mark Adams, 35, showing his class at number three. But from there the Eagles fought back in style, with Casey Lang, 3/28, and Shane Skene, 3/11, ensuring their run chase would be modest, dismissing their hosts for 116. However, Manifold Heights wasn’t going to just lay down and fought back brilliantly thanks to skipper Ben Knight taking an incredible 4/8 from six

overs as Waurn Ponds finished day one on 4/28. The first hour will be the key tomorrow because the side that gains the ascendency early should have enough momentum to get the job done. The division three match between Corio and Little River was also a wicket-fest, with 15 falling for just over 100 runs. Corio batted first but only Brad Brown, 15, and two others could manage double figures in their disappointing total of 74. Sam Reidy, 4/16, lead the way, with support from Chris Giese, 3/26, and Daniel Burrows, 3/10. The Redbacks were cruising in reply as they reached 1/34 thanks to Sam Reidy’s steady hand to notch up 25. But from there Kevin Hayes, 3/13, turned the match on its head, reducing Little River to 5/52 at stumps. The damage may be done for Corio because 23 runs should be gettable but there’s sure to be some nervous moments for Little River if an early wicket falls.

Corio Bay harbours conditioning local anglers to hot snapper action On the bite BRIAN LONG EXTREMELY favourable conditions encouraged anglers to chase snapper on Corio Bay’s inner and outer-harbours over the past week. Anglers were treated to some particularly outstanding captures at the area known as The Paddock last weekend, with Paul Piper enjoying a hot two-hour session. Paul caught five fish including a beauty of 7.3kg. However, Paul was a little deflated when he returned to shore to find that a counterpart had returned with an even bigger fish. Garry Knowles’ snapper weighed 9.2kg. Danny McLaughlin and brother Peter put in an all-night effort on the southern edge of Wilson Spit on Monday, bagging out on snapper just over 6kg. Fresh squid and pilchards were the bait, with the boys also losing quite a few fish throughout the night. Craig Angleton showed his angling skills when he caught his first snapper of the season, a fish over 5kg. Dale Vick and son Harrison returned with only one fish but, on the bright side, it was their biggest snapper to date. Nathan Steel found just how productive trolling for snapper can be when he caught two fish over 4kg on Rapala Tail Dancer 30-foot-diving lures between Wilson Spit and Alcoa.

Double trouble: Craig Angleton with a 5kg snapper and eight-year-old Harrison Vick with dad’s fish from the weekend. Land-based anglers also caught big snapper, with Jeff Leading taking a 4.2kg fish from North Shore’s rocks. The other land-based area to produce fish caught was Point Lillias, which made the long walk in worthwhile. All the best fishing was after dark on the run-off from high tide. Offshore anglers also found the snapper cooperative. Torquay to Barwon Heads was ideal in around 35m of water, with the same area also saw yielding

quality gummy sharks to almost 15kg. Surf anglers caught gummies from the beach at Point Roadknight. Success was dependent on fresh bait, with mullet or salmon fillets the first choice. Soft plastics anglers caught trevally to 1.5kg in the cut at Queenscliff an hour either side of high or low tide. Turtleback worms in the Pumpkin Green colour were favoured. Noel Ballard landed seven trevally on Monday for the combined bag of fish

weighing 8.9kg. Many anglers caught pike while trolling in the bays. Small bibbed lures diving around 2m were perfect, with the best action on the shallow inshore grass beds. Anyone seeking pike from the shore should head to North Shore rocks during the evening low tides with a small, metal baitfish-profile lure. Carp to more than 5kg were easy to catch from the Barwon River between Fyans Park and Breakwater on either

corn or bread baits paired with berley. Deep Lake again returned few fish apart from a couple of the biggest taken. At better than 3kg, some of the trout in the lake can be exceptional. Trolling at Lake Purrumbete caught both brown and rainbow trout. Successful anglers reported that deep-diving lures such as Double Clutches produced the better captures. Ballarat’s Lake Wendouree produced trout to around 1kg along with some nice redfin. Just down the road, Lake Burrumbeet was full and a little discoloured but some nice redfin were still caught. Anglers nearby at Lake Learmonth caught quality trout on Powerbait and local smelt. The Ron Nelson Fishing Clinic is on again at North Geelong’s Seagull Lake on October 28. Hosted by Association of Geelong and District Angling Clubs, the free competition is open to all children aged 16 and under. Rainbow trout are liberated just prior to the event, with the organisers also hosting a free barbecue. Registration begins 8.30am, with the competition from 9am to 1pm. Anyone seeking more information should phone Ian Pickering on 5266 1008 or John Hotchin on 5248 6817. With the late-evening high tides this weekend, this weekend should be ideal for snapper on the bays at Clifton Springs, Wilson Spit, Nine Foot Bank and The Paddock with baits such as fresh squid, silver whiting or fresh pilchard. Some of the best captures have been taken just on and just after sunset.
