Collections ‘unviable’

By CHERIE DONNELLAN

HARD rubbish collections would be a “financially unviable� failure in dealing with illegal dumping, according to a Geelong councillor. Environment and sustainability portfolio holder Andy Richards said a “fullblown� collection across the municipality would cost “several million dollars� but residents would still continue dumping rubbish.

Cr Richards said cleaning up illegal dumps would be “more financially viable�. Council had already spent $350,000 this financial year cleaning up dumped household goods, he revealed. Cr Richards said Victorian councils providing hard rubbish collection services still had issues with illegal dumping. “High tip fees� from a State Government landfill levy and “people’s lazi-

ness� were responsible for the dumping, he said. “The State Government shows no signs of reducing the landfill levy on tips fees and it’s currently half of what you pay at the gate. “The public should be asking their State Government representatives what they’re getting back in Geelong and the Bellarine community for the millions of dollars of landfill levy

that goes up to Spring St each year.� Cr Richards said waste management was a “key part� of discussions among councillors, with the issue set to go on the agenda of a May meeting in council chambers. Geelong Residents and Ratepayers’ Association president Andrew Senia called on council to produce “hard evidence� that the collections were unviable. Mr Senia said he was unconvinced

and called for an independent panel to assess potential solutions and their costs. “I’ve got the highest respect for Cr Richards but he’s not an accountant,� he said. Mr Senia said council should discuss the issue “much sooner� than May and present its initial findings “openly�. “It’s a long time to wait for discussions about such an important community issue,� he said.

MP vows ‘unity’ during PM’s visit By CHERIE DONNELLAN LABOR Member for Corangamite Darren Cheeseman has promised a “united front” with Prime Minister Julia Gillard when she visits Geelong this weekend despite last year calling her leadership “terminal”. “We’ll be working as a united team for Labor to hold the Geelong seats and secure government under the leadership of the Prime Minister,” Mr Cheeseman told the Independent. Mr Cheeseman tried to douse speculation Kevin Rudd would return to the leadership.

“I think he’s ruled that out,” Mr Cheeseman said. Manufacturing would be the focus of discussions with Ms Gillard when she visited this weekend, he said. Mr Cheeseman cited Labor’s investment in the region’s largest manufacturers – Ford, Alcoa and Shell – as “key” to him winning votes in the nation’s most marginal seat. “Between those three companies, which are a substantial part of our manufacturing sector and accounting for $400 million to $500 million in payroll, we’ll stress the importance about us keeping manufac-

turing and the jobs it creates strong.” But Liberal Senator Michael Ronaldson doubted that voters would believe Mr Cheeseman’s “about-face” on the Prime Minister. “Mr Cheeseman is delusional if he thinks that anyone believes he now supports the person whose leadership he described as terminal and who he said would decimate the party if she lead them to an election,” Mr Ronaldson said. Labor was “more focused on itself than… on governing the country,” he said.

Bail lost amid extra offences

By MICHELLE HERBISON

A MAGISTRATE has refused bail to a Leopold man with a $150-a-week ice habit remanded in custody over a string of drugs, firearms and stolen goods offences. Paul Kingsbury, 25, of Fairvista Ave, appeared without legal representation in the dock at Geelong Magistrates’ Court this week. A police informant told the court a search this week on Kingsbury’s residence led to his arrest. Police found goods including power tools and two pee-wee motorcycles believed to be stolen that Kingsbury had “purchased from friends”.

The residence also contained “pieces of firearms” including stocks and barrels as well as two grams of amphetamines and a “smoking implement”. The court heard that Kingsbury was charged on 24 August and bailed for offences including possessing amphetamines and prohibited weapons. The day before police had found at Kingsbury’s Fairvista Ave address two rifles with serial numbers ground off, a Holden ute with false South Australian number plates, various chemicals and drug-related items. “The accused admitted to extracting codeine from Panadol Forte tablets in the garage,” the informant said.

The ute was reported stolen from Colac in April 2012 and Kingsbury claimed to have bought it in May 2012, the court heard. After evacuating the premises police also found more firearms, a Taser, other weapons and written instructions for extracting codeine from Panadol Forte. Magistrate Michael Coghlan denied Kingsbury’s request for bail because he had racked up “new offences while on two sets of bail for serious matters”. “All of that I was told last year,” Mr Coghlan said. “You are at an unacceptable risk of committing further offences. Bail is revoked.”

Schools fix over $93m By JOHN VAN KLAVEREN BARWON South West schools’ maintenance bill of more than $93 million is double any other education department region in Victoria, according to an Auditor General report. The report said schools in the region needed an average investment of $725,000. The funding would bring all of the 129 schools up to “operational standard”, the report said. The region also had the most unused space following two building programs in recent years. Barwon South West had an oversupply of school buildings of 55 per cent, the report said. The surplus school building aver-

State’s biggest bill by far age across Victoria was 38 per cent based on student enrolments. School building programs between 2007 and 2012 included a Victorian Schools Plan (VSP) and Federal Government’s Building the Education Revolution (BER), spending $4.5 billion in Victorian schools infrastructure. Barwon South West received $311 million of new school buildings through the two programs. The Auditor General’s report said excess space had consequently more than doubled across the state. “The excess space is a mix of

teaching and non-teaching space, including corridors and administration space. “Excess teaching space has increased from around eight per cent prior to VSP and BER to 25 per cent currently.” The report said the new buildings had added to school’s maintenance costs. “Keeping school buildings in this condition will require sustained investment in maintenance over the life cycle of these buildings.” The report said Department of Education and Early Childhood De-

velopment was failing to manage school infrastructure efficiently and cost-effectively. “Historical underfunding of maintenance, a lack of life-cycle planning and a lack of accountability for schools’ expenditure of maintenance funds are compromising the effective management of school buildings. “DEECD is aware of the need to enhance asset management practices but has not yet taken effective action.” Education Minister Martin Dixon said State Government would spend $51.5 million at more than 200 schools on urgent maintenance. The money would be spent on schools with the greatest need as identified by a recent maintenance audit, he said.

In brief Link opens PEDESTRIANS will walk the latest stage of Geelong’s ring road during an official opening of the $110 million 4B link on Sunday. Roads Minister Terry Mulder said the opening of the link and associated roadways between Anglesea Rd and Princes Hwy would begin at midday, with traffic taking over later in the afternoon.

Parry thrust AUSTRALIAN golf legend Craig Parry is a “lastminute” entry for the sport’s Victorian Open at Barwon Heads this weekend, organisers announced. Tournament director David Greenhill expected 47-year-old Parry, a former member of Torquay Golf Club, to be “major threat” in the open at 13th Beach.

Pavilion upgrade A $750,000 upgrade of Bell Park’s Alex Rizun Pavilion will benefit hundreds of players in the suburb’s football, netball and cricket clubs, according to ward councillor Eddy Kontelj. He said the upgrade would help service more than 600 players and 150 volunteers and include an “informal BMX space” at Hamlyn Park Recreation Reserve.

Aboriginal revival INDIGENOUS Australians will help open next month’s Geelong Highland Gathering, organisers have announced. They said the welcome-to-country and smoking ceremony would revive a “156-year-old tradition” at the Celtic cultural event, which invited local Aborigines to participate at its second staging in 1858.

Active cash A $488,000 State Government grant will help Geelong’s council encourage residents to become “more active”, according to a councillor. Kylie Fisher said council would use the money to “implement practical programs” encouraging higher levels of activity.

Ramped up ST HELENS will receive a concrete-deck pontoon in upgrades to boating facilities around Victoria, Ports Minister Denis Napthine has announced. He said the $50,000 St Helens project was among 57 initiatives to “enhance safety” around the state’s coastline.

Peninsula vets program kids into Darwin defence DRYSDALE RSL will expand a primary school program, teaching students about the 1942 bombing of Darwin, to schools beyond the region following its local success. Organiser and veteran Bill Derham said the Defence of Darwin program had been “gradually expanding” on the Bellarine Peninsula since its inception three years ago. A team of about five veterans

presented the program to enthusiastic Clifton Springs Primary School students this week as the nation commemorated the event’s 71st anniversary. “We present these programs to seven schools and we’re looking at adding to our list. We’ll be training people from the other clubs and they’re going to run it around Victoria,” Mr Derham said. The one-hour education program for grade five and six students

included an ode to fallen soldiers, a DVD featuring real footage and a visit from a veteran to answer questions. Mr Derham said many students were completely unaware about the Japanese bombing of Darwin during World War II before attending his program. “The kids don’t know what went on. They haven’t got a clue,” he said. “They don’t know it was the first time Australia was ever attacked and we had to defend ourselves.

“Most of our troops were in North Africa so we had to get untrained soldiers to New Guinea.” Students engaged well with the visiting veterans and asked plenty of questions, Mr Derham said. “We give them an RSL certificate for the best question and the school gets a copy of the film.” “We don’t shock and horror – we go through and explain what happened and there’s nothing in there that will upset anyone.”

By MICHELLE HERBISON A MAN has been ordered to pay more than $6000 in fines and fees after his two guard dogs fatally attacked a neighbour’s cat at Moolap. Robert Lilley, 49, of Clifton St, Aberfeldie, pleaded guilty this week in Geelong Magistrates Court to various dog control offences relating to an incident involving his two German shepherd guard dogs.

City of Greater Geelong prosecutor Wayne Lugg said on January 26, 2012, the male and female dogs escaped Lilley’s commercial property at Essex St, Moolap, and entered another property. “The female occupant observed both dogs holding her cat in their mouths and they appeared to be pulling at the cat.” The cat died from injuries including an “extensive wound to its hind quarters” and skin, muscle and fat damage, Mr Lugg told the court.

Lilley’s defence lawyer said his client owned the dogs as part of a security plan following a 2010 break-in that cost him about $30,000 in insurance premiums. Both German shepherds were registered on the City’s dangerous dogs list, his defence said. Lilley was initially “at odds” to explain how the dogs had escaped but following an investigation came to believe a gate might have been left open, his defence said.

Federal MPs hooked up with early cabling

Boss backs taxi ‘snubs’ over safety

By JOHN VAN KLAVEREN

By MICHELLE HERBISON

GEELONG’S federal electorate offices have received fibre optic internet connections months before the National Broadband Network rollout arrives in the city. Telstra has a $23 million government contract to upgrade telecommunications services to the offices of MPs, including Corio’s Richard Marles and Corangamite’s Darren Cheeseman. Geelong’s NBN rollout of optic fibre to homes and businesses is scheduled to begin in June. Mr Marles said Department of Parliamentary Services made the decision for MPs to have cabling earlier. A briefing at City Hall this week updated businesses and stakeholders on the rollout program. Councillor Rod Macdonald said residents would see NBN trucks on the streets in June, starting in North Geelong. “Planning is under way now and we’re ensuring there are opportunities for local jobs on the NBN rollout.”

GEELONG Taxi Network will stand behind its drivers refusing to service Corio and Norlane following a spate of rock-throwing incidents, according to its boss. Peter Valentine said pedestrians throwing rocks at taxis had “escalated to the point of being ridiculous” in six months, with half a dozen arrests between September and November and 56 recent incidents without arrest. “If we’ve got a customer in that area the decision remains with the driver whether they feel safe driving into that area. They may elect to pass it back to the network. “How on earth could you penalise someone for not driving into an area that’s so heavily known as dangerous?” A male passenger was this week hospitalised after a rock thrown at a taxi hit him in the head. Police believed a group of five to six Caucasian teenagers, mostly dressed in black shorts and white singlets, had been in the area at the time throwing rocks and eggs at cars. Mr Valentine said some taxi drivers would choose to take different routes into Geelong’s northern suburbs because most incidents occurred along the Princes Hwy.

Gordon’s Stephen Gale, NBNco’s Mary Todorov and Cr Rod Macdonald with iPads after the rollout briefing this week. Picture: REG RYAN 94335 Cr Macdonald said construction and telecommunications firm Transfield Services would contract local jobs as part of its $133 million contract to construct the NBN in Victoria. Job opportunities would include technical and non-technical roles, including optic fibre splicing, cable hauling, cus-

tomer cabling, civil construction and traffic management, he said. “The job now is to let business and the community know what the NBN means for them. As an example, we had to spend $20,000 on extra phone lines in our regional libraries to cope with the increased internet demand.” NBNco has given Gordon

MASSIVE RANGE OF GIFTWARE AVAILABLE

TAFE a grant to train telecommunications workers in preparation for the rollout, according to the institute ICT program manager Steve Gale. The subsidy would enable locals to train in fibre optics and gain a Certificate III in Telecommunications fibre splicer stream, he said. The course begins on 1 March.

“It has occurred that the driver waiting at a taxi rank in the city will say ‘Sorry, I’m not going to that area’ or they may take a longer route. “But there was an instance where a driver was called into the area then pelted. In another situation recently these people wheeled a bin into the road to slow the cab down then pelted it with rocks.” Mr Valentine urged Geelong magistrates to “get a little bit more serious” in punishing offenders against taxis. Northern Futures Geelong executive officer Lou Brazier said taxis must continue servicing the area. “To punish the whole community for the actions of a few is a gross mistake. I don’t think taxi drivers saying we won’t service any of the area resolves the issues. “There are a lot of elderly people and people with disabilities who use taxis doing absolutely nothing wrong.” Member for Lara John Eren blamed a lack of staff at Corio Police Station for the “law and order issue”. “It’s important State Government take ownership of this for the sake of taxi drivers, passengers and the good majority of northern suburbs residents who deserve a taxi service like anyone else.”

Salt sites EES calls PLANS to redevelop salt pans at Moolap and Lara will undergo environmental effects statements, according to the site’s owner. Ridley announced the environmental studies as Geelong Environment Council asked Planning Minister Matthew Guy to can what it called the “environmentally disastrous” development. The Independent revealed last year that Ridley wanted to redevelop the $3.5 million sites after declaring them surplus to requirements. Ridley chief John Murray said this week that state and federal governments had noti-

fied the company it would have to carry out the environmental statement studies. “We’re in the process of preparing the scope of the work required to ensure we cover all the issues raised,” he said. “The environment council will get an absolute opportunity to have input through the process for the very reasons the state and federal governments have called for the study. “Everyone has their view, so once we do the work the community consultation can start. It’s difficult to make substantial claims before the process has been laid out. “I feel so strongly about the

environmental credentials of the site and the project that I’m confident we can deal with all the issues raised.” Environment council president Joan Lindros wrote in the letter to Mr Guy that her organisation strongly opposed the development. She called on Mr Guy to abandon further State Government considerations of the proposal to avoid a “long, divisive and expensive process” for the “company, government, council and the community”. Ms Lindros listed risks of “devastating” loss of important bird habitat and potential public land and “possible ... mo-

bilisation of toxic chemicals in Corio Bay”. She also cited Australia’s participation in international treaties to protect wetlands and bird habitats. “Moolap salt pans provide food, foraging and shelter for at least 22 species of threatened migratory birds. “The loss of 460 hectares out of the complex of remaining wetlands is unacceptable.” Ms Lindros said Geelong had ample area already available or undergoing development and raised concerns about the impact of rising sea levels on the site.

Hospital revival brings vital jobs boost, care A $65 MILLION redevelopment of St John of God Geelong Hospital will “generate” 5000 admissions a year to reduce pressure on Geelong’s existing health services, according to the hospital’s chief. Stephen Roberts said the project would “help address forecast shortfalls in patient services and accommodation in the region”. “This redevelopment will provide a range of new facilities for St John of God Geelong, including a new emergency department, additional operating theatres, a rehabilitation centre, a hydrotherapy pool, 64 inpatient beds, a new chapel and pastoral care department, extensive on-site car parking and much more,” he said. “More importantly however, this project will create at least 125 full-time clinical and non-clinical positions for Geelong, a major boost in employment for the region.” Mr Roberts took Mayor Keith Fagg on a tour of the work site last week. The project was scheduled for completion in April, 2014, Mr Roberts said. “The redeveloped hospital would also “contribute to the revitalisation of our city and improve the streetscape of both Myers and Moorabool Sts.” Up to 200 workers will be on-site at the peak of the project. The hospital provides care to over 22,500 patients annually and employs over 650 staff.

Operator profits on port GEELONG’S port has posted a 125 per cent first-half profit increase for operator Asciano. The jump followed Asciano increasing its stake in Port of Geelong from 30 to 50 per cent early last year. Asciano chief John Mullen said

the profit increase reflected the first full six-month return on the investment. He said a strong operating performance over the six months to December 31 also made a significant contribution. Geelong Port’s performance lifted revenue by 33.6 per cent.

GEELONG, Queenscliff and the Surf Coast have applied for almost $30 million worth of projects in the third and fourth rounds of Regional Development Australia (RDA) funding. The big-ticket item was redevelopment of Geelong Performing Arts Centre (GPAC), costed at $15 million. Other bids included $9 million for a Leopold Community Hub, $3 million for a Geelong Centre for Emerging Infectious Diseases, funding for a Banyul Warri Fields stage two development and $500,000 for a Point Lonsdale Village foreshore revitalisation project. RDA approved the projects to proceed to full application stage but rejected several

regional project applications. An Epworth Health Care bid to add a sixth floor to its proposed Geelong hospital failed to win favour. Hesse Rural Health Service had its children’s centre bid knocked back, while a proposed St John of God project called Advancing Health Opportunities in the Barwon South West also missed out. Surf Coast Shire’s application for stage three of its Banyul Warri Fields sports development was also refused. RDA said round three attracted 216 expressions of interest asking for $84.7 million for projects valued at $476.2 million. Round four attracted 159 expressions of interest seeking grants of $911.8 million for projects worth $3.51 billion.

No contracts. Low fees. Open 24/7.

The $50 million stage two GPAC redevelopment is part of a Geelong Future Cities project, including refurbishment of the city’s Old Courthouse, expansion of Geelong Art Gallery and redevelopment of Geelong’s central library and heritage centre. The project’s webpage said GPAC’s technical infrastructure had failed to keep pace with industry standards. “Some urgent maintenance works have been funded but the building is not compliant nor does it meet current industry standards,” the webpage said. The GPAC redevelopment was expected to create more than 130 ongoing direct jobs, increase audience numbers by 108 per cent and increase the total number of events a year from 219 to 379.

We offer excellent employment conditions and opportunities to further your career. To view available positions, apply or obtain a position description visit our website www.geelongaustralia.com.au

Council recently adopted the planning scheme amendment C254 to implement the Leopold Structure Plan (2010).

PUBLIC MEETINGS NOTICE OF COUNCIL MEETING The next meeting of the Greater Geelong City Council will be held at the Council Conference and Reception Centre, City Hall, Little Malop Street entrance, Geelong on Tuesday 26 February commencing at 7.00pm. Details of issues to be considered will be available on the City’s website www.geelongaustralia.com.au The meeting is open to the public.

The Structure Plan calls for investigation into opportunities for public access to Port Phillip Bay between Clifton Avenue and Grand Scenic Drive, Leopold. Existing public access to the bay is limited by the lack of public land at the foreshore. We are currently developing a project brief to investigate how public access to the bay could be achieved. To inform the scoping of the project we are seeking community feedback on the matters that should be included in the review. We are interested in community views on the following: • the types of activities that residents and visitors are seeking; • recreational and social infrastructure required; • environmental constraints; • land uses such as tourism developments, agriculture or boating facilities that should be investigated; and • willingness to pay for facilities. Please provide your comments to Jessica Hurse - Strategic Planner by email to jhurse@geelongcity.vic.gov.au or via the City’s website www. geelongaustralia.com.au under ‘Have your say’.

LESS WASTE TO LANDFILL Congratulations Geelong, you are some of the top recyclers in Australia. Our challenge is to continue this good work and further reduce the amount of material we send to landfill. Increases in state and federal taxes have driven up the cost of burying rubbish at landfill. Now approximately 60 per cent of the cost of waste going to landfill is taken up in taxes. A trailer load of rubbish costs from $34 – of that total $20.40 is state and federal taxes. Before you throw it out ask yourself can your items be reused? Would a friend or neighbour be able to use your unwanted goods? Secondly ask yourself can it be recycled? Recycling reduces the drain on finite natural resources such as oil. For example it is cheaper and better for the environment to recycle metal and plastic rather than produce it from scratch. Many items from whitegoods to car batteries can be recycled.

If you see someone dumping rubbish call the EPA’s 24 hour hotline on 1300 372 842 or the City of Greater Geelong on 5272 5272. Dumping rubbish is a crime.

FREE WHITEGOODS DROP OFF

Did you know you can drop off unwanted whitegoods free? In fact any recyclable metal items can be dropped off free. Or contact a scrap metal merchant and they will come and pick up recyclable metal items for free.

Old computer equipment can be recycled. Drop off your old computer hardware free at our City’s Resource Recovery Centres.

FREE TELEVISION DROP OFF Have you replaced your old TV with a new digital model? Did you know you can drop off your old television free at the City’s Resource Recovery Centres?

Geelong has much to proud of – let’s keep our city beautiful. You can do your bit to stamp out illegal dumping. Council clean ups of dumped rubbish must use public funds that could spent on community services. When the Council has to clean up dumped rubbish it wastes public funds that could be spent on community services.

RABBIT POISONING PROGRAM The City of Greater Geelong will be conducting a program to reduce rabbit numbers at the below mentioned reserves. Weather permitting, the program will be conducted between Monday 25 February to Monday 8 April. Baits of chopped carrot, treated with anti-coagulant poison Pindone will be laid by a Department of Primary Industries licensed contractor in accordance with manufacturer’s guidelines. Warning signs will be placed at all reserve entrances before the campaign commences. The City recommends that pet animals be restrained and not allowed to roam in these areas during this period. Pets may be at risk if they ingest the poisoned baits or rabbit carcasses. Vitamin K1 which is available from the local veterinarian, is an antidote for Pindone. Any carrot pieces observed, or rabbits found either alive or dead in these reserves should not be handled.

Mining hurts city, says think tank

JOBS GONE: Geelong Trades Hall boss Tim Gooden.

THE mining boom has done more harm than good to Geelong, according to a Canberra-based think tank. The Australia Institute senior economist Matt Grudnoff said the organisation’s analysis had determined that mining was draining Geelong of skilled workers and costing manufacturing jobs due to a higher exchange rate. “For cities like Geelong, (the) mining boom delivers a lot more pain than gain,” Mr Grudnoff said. The institute’s analysis of recent census data found that Geelong had lost one in eight manufacturing jobs.

Geelong Trades Hall leader Tim Gooden backed the findings of the institute. “With so many Geelong businesses closing and workers being sacked or made redundant in the last two years, it’s not hard to see that the mining boom hasn’t delivered the same benefits to everybody, especially here in Geelong.” The institute describes its goal as to “push public debate beyond the simplistic question of whether markets or governments have all the answers” to important questions such as when does government “need to intervene in the market”.

GEELONG City Council will help community organisations seek funds to work with hoarders after their behaviour becomes recognised as a mental illness this year, according to a councillor. An internationally-recognised American psychiatry handbook will in its May edition identify hoarding as a mental health disorder independent from obsessivecompulsive disorder. American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders identifies hoarding as “the acquisition of and failure to discard a large number of possessions that seem to be ... of limited value”, cluttering living spaces and causing distress. Recent research has linked the condition with public health issues and fire danger. Geelong Hoarding Network chair Cr Kylie Fisher said the new classification would help service

SERVICE: Cr Kylie Fisher. providers to continue to improve their work with hoarders in the region. “Hoarding’s always been there but previously no one was identified in working in that space. Now we have networks getting together to support people and families and we are developing an information resource guide on how people can contact support services.” Cr Fisher said a hoarding fo-

rum next week would address sufferers and service providers on issues and tactics to deal with the condition. Key presenters would include a psychologist, a hoarding consultant, a metropolitan fire brigade member and a representative from Geelong community support organisation Bethany. Bethany’s Tracie McPherson, who will present local case studies at Monday’s forum, said Geelong service providers were collaborating with “limited resources”. “But we were able to put money into funding a skip,” she said. Ms McPherson said many hoarders were older than 40 and accumulated items including books, stuffed toys, towels, bed linen, lamps, magazines and newspapers. She said a “harm minimisation” approach for hoarders dealt with general health and safety issues including keeping exits clear in case of an emergency.

‘Green light’ for sustainable firms GEELONG Manufacturing Council will spend a $400,000 grant on helping local businesses adopt “sustainable practices”. The State Government money will pay the manufacturing Council to operate a 12-month Green Light Project to help participants reduce material inputs, waste and carbon dioxide emissions. Manufacturing council executive officer David Peart said the project was focused on “resourceconscious businesses” that consumed significant amounts of materials.

“Participants will learn strategies to develop new and innovative ways to develop products. The result will be reduced costs, reduced materials and the creation of new markets,” Mr Peart said. “All this leads to significant additional revenue streams and greater profit margins.” A statement from a marketing company announcing the “groundbreaking” project said Backwell IXL, Barwon Health, Godfrey Hirst and Target had signed up to the project.

Warning to parents

Mouthguards for your kids: Don’t take risks!

As the mother of three young children I wouldn’t let my kids play a sport without the protection of a properly fitted mouthguard. I’d want you to do the same for your kids.

Tha why I’m making this very special offer That’s of ffully customised children’s mouthguards for

ONLY $100! O

That’s right, just $100 for kids to hav have a mouthguard made and fitted by dental professionals. What could be better than that ? pro

When your child plays a sport it’s important to protect their teeth with a mouthguard. A fall, a ball or bat in the face or a knock from another player can cause serious damage to young teeth. Whilst some injuries may only be minor and can be easily treated other injuries can cause problems for a growing child’s teeth and may create problems in later life. So it’s good advice to make sure your children always wear a mouthguard when playing sport. But please, don’t just go to a sports store and purchase a readymade one (made to fit any child’s mouth) “off the shelf” no matter what the shop assistant may do or say to convince you to purchase it. They may be cheap but they’re not great protection for young teeth. I recommend that you get a mouthguard made specifically for your child by a dentist or other qualified dental professional. Here at the Geelong Children’s Dental Centre, we take exacting impressions of your child’s mouth and teeth, carefully noting any special requirements. Then we mould a mouthguard specifically designed to fit their mouth and protect their teeth. When it’s ready, we fit it so it’s exactly right for maximum protection and ensure they know how to use it properly.

Board theft stirs Facebookers By CHERIE DONNELLAN

FACEBOOK FRENZY: Jon Willard and son Jackson with the custom board stolen from Point Impossible.

THE RESPONSE of thousands of Facebook users to a stolen surfboard has “overwhelmed” an Ocean Grove surfer. Jon Willard, who had deactivated his Facebook account until the theft, posted a plea for information hours after his custom-made yellow Rasta ’66 noserider was stolen from his car while he surfed at Point Impossible around midday February 8. More than 2500 people had shared Mr Willard’s post by Wednesday

this week. Facebook users as far away as the US and The Netherlands had shared the post. Mr Willard said he had yet to recover the surfboard but the show of public support had left him “overwhelmed”. Mr Willard told the Independent a woman believed she had seen the board inside a car travelling down Surf Coast Hwy shortly after the alleged theft but he had no other feedback. Bellarine Police officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Angelo Ferrara said

the incident served as a reminder that thieves outside the region targeted “trusting locals” who overlooked the security of their belongings. “We’d encourage people to be careful with their property no matter where they are,” Sen Sgt Ferrara said. “We’ve had prior examples of people who don’t live in the area coming to local car parks and beaches to steal things while beachgoers are out in the water.” Sen Sgt Ferrara believed the

unique design of Mr Willard’s board raise a “possibility” it could be found. The design could help identify the board if it surfaced on online sale sites or at second-hand dealer stores, Sen Sgt Ferrara said. “There’s a fair chance if whoever stole it wants to make money out of it, either selling it on the internet or taking to second-hand dealers.” Mr Willard said he had placed advertisements on eBay and Gumtree alerting users about his stolen surfboard.

the availability of resources and support”, he said. Cr Richards said the council would plant “quicker-growing” shrubs and grasses in years four and five. The project would use the trees’ canopy to create a tunnel-effect over the trail from near Geelong’s ring road to Church St in Hamlyn Heights. Council planted 400 trees along the trail in the past week as part of the project’s first stage.

BOYS’ NIGHT: Rodney McKinnis, Rob Kitson, Andrew Senia, Steve Malesic, Ian Lapsley and Chris Wallis. Picture: GREG WANE 93070

‘Boys’ by night finally turn 21 WHEN the boys get together for a night out, the talk is often the usual that might be heard when a band of men gather around food and a bottle of red. But one particular band of men has been assembling weekly for 21 years and from the start has always been something more than just a social gathering. Three mates founded the Boys’ Night Out group in 1992 after finding themselves suddenly single and in need of cheap pizza. The group has evolved through the years to a floating membership of around 20, meeting each Thursday night to decide on a different restaurant to patronise. “We’ll have a group of up to 15 meet, go out and have dinner, a bottle of wine and be home again at a reasonable hour,” explained co-founder Ian Lapsley. “It’s harmless fun mostly but it has a serious side as well. It has over the years been a support for a number of blokes who need a group to relate to, whatever stage of life they might be in. “It’s somewhere to go and open up about your problems or any issues you might have. It’s just shared experiences, a form of bloke’s therapy. “It’s an outlet for those who suddenly find themselves going through a shake-up in life and helps them get back on track. Life usually settles down but most have us have kept coming along.

club John Van Klaveren

“The boys talk the talk boys talk but once a year we organise an outing with our wives and partners and we’re on our best behaviour,” Ian laughed. During its 21 years the Boys’ Night Out group estimates it has spent somewhere between $700,000 and $800,000 on food and wine in the region, supporting lots of local eateries along the way. “It’s all about good company and pleasant surroundings,” Chris Wallis added. “We meet and decide where we’ll go that evening. “Some venues are a bit taken aback by 15 blokes trooping through the door but they usually recover pretty quickly,” he smiled. “A lot of venues know us now.” And its Chatham house rules – what happens on boys’ night out stays on boys’ night out. The entry isn’t quite free but it’s pretty simple: everyone brings a bottle of wine, preferably red, to share and puts in for the meal. Members are acquired by word of mouth and personal in-

troduction, with new adherents warmly welcomed, adding to the mix and cross section. “We’re all from different walks of life, so no one has an axe to grind and it’s relaxed and casual,” member Andrew Senia said. “We might still have the odd debate because boys will be boys but at the end of the night it’s handshakes all round and ‘See you next week’. “The most animated discussions are usually before the night has even begun as the group tries to decide where to go. We generally choose a central venue because most of us are within walking distance and there’s no issue with driving after drinking. “We like to support small businesses and we usually choose reasonably priced establishments.” The group has lost three members to illness in recent years. Experiencing the loss has only strengthened the bond. The group is not big on rules – if an issue arises the running joke is referral to the “constitution” – normally the nearest blank napkin. And now that it has reached the adult age of 21, does that mean the Boys’ Night Out group has to mature? “No way,” declared Ian. “We’ll be the same no matter how old we are, individually or collectively.”

Bin there, don’t do that NEXT time Independent readers are having a picnic in a park or a snack in the street they should remember not to throw empty bottles, cans or food wrappers into bushes.

A RULE of thumb in the lead-up to the 14 September federal election should be to ignore fluoro vest and hard hat TV prime-time news bites. The Gillard Government just doesn’t get it. And that’s cutting it, and the opposition for that matter, some slack. A manipulative mining tax that short-changes taxpayers on an equitable share of finite resources, a $1 billion jobs package to massage in an election year unions and their members accustomed to outof-kilter champagne lifestyles. Dubious? Ask visiting expats how expensive Australia has become. The tail is wagging the dog at a massive cost to the country. As for the carbon tax, have readers noticed how many cinema and restaurant air-conditioning systems are awaiting the service man? Public-private-funded top-end water opportunities are crying out for but a smidgen of major party nous, not to mention no-brainer financial price-increase support for established primary producers as well as calling it quits for taxpayer funded CPR for car and alumina producers who need to take their chances by relocating to Asia.

Knowledge beats theory GAVIN Brown (Letters, February 8) should reconsider. As a comparison to climate change, most road safety professionals around the world have been convinced speed limit enforcement is so critical that they need to introduce speed camera technology and high levels of enforcement.

Email: editorial@geelongindependent.com.au PO Box 407, Geelong, 3220 Fax: 5249 6799

Yet, as someone who has been studying this for over 20 years, I know that speed cameras have achieved almost nothing in relation to reducing deaths. Of course, the vested interests pushing this technology are speed camera manufacturers. The fact that thousands of scientists believe humans are generating dramatic climate change is no proof of anything other than the power of group thinking. When a group of engineers criticised climate change science, climate change commissioner Tim Flannery derided them as having no knowledge in the area. Yet mechanical engineers, who build all sorts of power stations and climate-control systems, have greater training in theoretical areas relevant to climate change than any other group. A big issue with proving global temperature increases is that a huge amount of long-term data comes from cities like Melbourne where energy consumed in buildings raises the average temperature maximums by several degrees. As a result, there is a need to estimate how much of the increase in temperature is due to the city acting as a heat sink. Many people who agree that climate is changing all the time and who have serious reservations about information on increasing global temperatures and humans’ contribution to it have in-depth knowledge about the field. John Lambert Wandana Heights

Praise for volunteers NATURAL disasters are a tough time for Australians. Many families have faced disadvantage as a result of damage to their properties, we have lost families and friends at the hands of Mother Nature and it can take years to recover from the dent these experiences leave on individuals and communities. Earlier this year we again witnessed or were part of terrible stories about bushfires ravaging Australia, leaving homes in ruins, removing physical traces of lifetimes of memories and leaving an emptiness in hearts. These times test the spirit and strength of a nation. I acknowledge the work of volunteers, without whom many of the crucial activities to assist with fires would not take place. Their generous commitment makes me proud to be a part of this country. Father Chris Riley Youth Off The Streets chief executive officer

Shame about emphasis on MP backflip Corangamite was neglected. Mr Cheeseman winning the seat was also huge win for the people of the electorate. Since then Corangamite has been a winner in the popularity stakes, not for the residents but for political reasons in Canberra. Now with new electoral boundaries favouring the Liberals there is not much hope the good work will continue. Corangamite will become like the Victorian Government, still trying to fill the shoes of Steve Bracks and John Brumby. E Ruseler South Geelong

Striking at improvement MAY I first thank the teachers willing to work on strike day last week so that at least some children had the opportunity to learn. These teachers were committed and courageous and, I suspect, attracted some opposition from colleagues. The Victorian Government is undertaking reforms in education to improve learning outcomes for students and parents and to ensure Victoria is home to a world-class education system. These improvements include paying the best teachers in schools a performance bonus and ensuring graduate teachers have opportunities to be paid a performance bonus if they are the best teachers in the schools rather than basing pay on seniority. This will make Victoria’s best-performing teachers the best paid in the country. It will also help keep the best and brightest early-career teachers. The Coalition’s proposal would see a leading classroom teacher paid more than $100,000 a year and a graduate teacher more than $63,000 if recognised as a top performer in their school. Currently about 98 per cent of teachers automatically progress up the pay scale each year regardless of performance. This is part of the reason why the performance management system is broken and needs to be improved despite the opposition of Australian Education Union (AEU). It is regrettable the AEU chose to proceed with

strike action, which inconvenienced students, parents and the community. The Government is continuing to negotiate with the AEU on a regular and consultative basis. Simon Ramsay MLC Member for Western Victoria

Students face cuts EARLIER this month the Victorian Labor opposition moved a motion in parliament calling on the Baillieu Government to rule out further cuts to education in the 2013 state budget. The motion called on Premier Baillieu to guarantee he would not make further cuts to education and skills in Victoria. However, each and every member of the coalition in the Victorian Legislative Council voted against the motion. In its first two years, the Baillieu Government ripped $555 million out of our education system. When questioned on the enormous cuts to education, the Minister for Education, Martin Dixon, said: “We are putting money into the programs that matter and into the students that matter”. The Labor opposition believes that every student matters. Every student deserves the right to quality education to give them the best possible start in life. The Baillieu Government’s education cuts are jeopardising our children’s future. Gayle Tierney MP Member for Western Victoria

IT IS amazing how quick people participate in mud-slinging at a politician when a promise is broken, especially when no explanation is at hand, such as Member for Corangamite Darren Cheeseman promising 90 jobs at Fort Queenscliff. Can anyone give me just one name of a politician without the shame of a backflip? It is a matter of fact that the fate of the fort was decided under the Howard Government and that the then-sitting Member for Corangamite, as usual, did nothing to find alternative placement for redundancies before the fort closed.

A Milestone Year for Geelong Funeral Company

1063925-JL8-13

Pictured: Trevor Cole, Gavin Cole and Ross Allen.

2013 is a year to remember for the team at Tuckers Funeral & Bereavement Service. It all started back when FH Tucker Undertaker, Builder, Timber Merchant opened for business in 1883. Starting out, this small business was operated in a two room cottage with one standing desk, a couple of oil lamps, a horse drawn hearse and no telephones. Today, Tuckers employ over 38 local staff, operate several venues and office locations throughout the region, maintain a fleet of vehicles, and unlike in 1883, all staff now have phones, computers and much more. Funeral Directors Trevor Cole, Gavin Cole and Ross Allen are very well known within the Greater Geelong community and with good reason as combined they have an impressive 110 years of service representing Tuckers. Gavin Cole celebrates his 20 years of service in 2013, Ross Allen has continuously served the families of Geelong, making this his 40th year with Tuckers and Trevor Cole celebrates his 50th year of service this year. When talking to these three gentlemen you hear stories of men who have given their life to serving others and with the support they receive from their families will do so for some time to come. So what has been the key to Tuckers standing the test of time for 130 years? Mark Osborne, General Manager says. “The short answer is ‘our people’. Over the years Tuckers have employed incredibly passionate and dedicated staff, a tradition that continues today. In addition to this, our key points of difference including, our bereavement and aftercare program, multiple facilities, new technologies, our entire funeral fleet, inclusive of our vintage hearses, and much more”. The quality of the service Tuckers provides has helped forge strong relationships with many Geelong families over the years. Tuckers commitment to be involved in the community continues by giving back and participating both physically and financially to the people of Geelong. This hands on approach is initially a legacy of the work of Les Cole, now continued by his son Trevor and grandson Gavin. Tuckers staff have had the privilege to provide personalised service to the community for over 130 years, meeting the needs of Geelong’s growing and culturally diverse population. All of this has resulted in Tuckers Funeral & Bereavement Service being Geelong’s most trusted funeral provider. We are looking forward to the opportunity to service this community for the next 130 years.

Celebrating diversity SPONSOR: Matthew Sun and wife Min Yuan.

Backer of festa THE MAN behind BCC Computers and Betta Home Living Geelong West has a strong and proud association with Pako Festa. Matthew Sun says his naming rights sponsorship of Pako Festa is part of his close community involvement. BCC recently opened a new modern IT showroom in Westfield Geelong. With manufacturer support, the showroom offers latest technology with the best prices and service. Matthew has been Chinese Association Geelong’s president, is a past member of Diversitat’s executive committee, is involved with Neighbourhood Watch and also sponsored Geelong’s Davis Cup round. “I was born in Shanghai and was a physics teacher in China before I came to Australia. I have been fortunate since arriving in Melbourne in 1989 and moving to Geelong in 1992 to start my business career. “I am lucky to have made a lot of friends in Geelong. I love dealing with people and being involved in the community. “Geelong is a small town compared with Shanghai and has a tight community. To look after each other and find a win-win solution became my business philosophy. “My family is involved in the local Chinese community. My wife, Min Yuan, is president of the Chinese Association of Geelong and vice-president of the Federation of Chinese Associations in Victoria. “We understand the importance of the role of multiculturalism within the community and are pleased we are in a position to give something back.”

Pako Festa is Australia’s biggest celebration of cultural diversity, featuring plenty of colourful characters from various ethnic communities.

CELEBRATING PAKO FESTA!

ANDREW KATOS

NOW IN its 31st year, Geelong’s Pako Festa is the biggest festival of its kind in Australia. Managed by Diversitat and held on the last weekend of February in Geelong West’s Pakington St – the multicultural heart of the city – Pako Festa incorporates an extravagant street parade featuring around 90 floats and hundreds of performers representing 45 ethnicities and around 60 other community groups and organisations. The street is lined with stalls selling traditional foods and arts and crafts, while nine stages offer performances of music and dance as well as interactive workshops and exhibitions. Pako Festa has become Victoria’s premier multicultural event, attracting over 100,000 patrons in each of the past three years to provide the local economy with a $2.5 million windfall. Pako Festa Street Parade begins at 11am this Saturday as one of the most important events of the festival. Encapsulating the essence of Australian diversity, the festa promotes cooperation, community inter-connectedness, creativity and humanity. Highlights at this year’s event include: back-to-back performances on five stages beginning midday; roving street performances; workshops, craft displays and children’s activities; a giant screen showcasing images and footage from past events; a smorgasbord of multicultural food; and Channel 7 stars from Home and Away. In 2013, 34 communities will be represented in the parade and on stage. They are: Afghan, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Chinese, Congolese, Croatian, Dutch, Filipino, French, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian, Indian, Irish, Iranian, Italian, Karen, Karenni, Liberian, Lithuanian, Macedonian, Malay, Maori, Nepalese, Polish, Scottish, Serbian, Slovenian, Spanish, South Sudanese, Ukrainian, Welsh, Zimbabwean and members of Wathaurong Aboriginal Co-operative.

I AM delighted to have this opportunity to send greetings to everyone coming along to the 2013 Geelong Pako Festa and offer my congratulations to those who have made such a great effort to bring about this much-loved event. Pako Festa is one of the largest free celebrations of Australia’s cultural diversity, encouraging visitors to enjoy its festivities in a spirit of understanding and harmony. It is fitting that such an event should be held here in Victoria where we are all proud of our multicultural identity and our shared commitment to social unity. For the past 30 years this event has drawn thousands of Victorians together to celebrate and enjoy a whole host of entertainment highlights and this year the Festa promises to be bigger and better than ever as it turns 31.

Premier Ted Baillieu With a lively street parade and a great variety of food, music and cultural traditions to be enjoyed, the festival truly offers something for everyone. Pako Festa also showcases many of the cultural and community groups, artists and small businesses that contribute so

City proud of cultural showcase CITY of Greater Geelong is proud to host Pako Festa, Victoria’s largest and best multicultural festival. Now in its 31st year, Pako Festa is greater Geelong’s muchloved celebration of cultural diversity, attracting more than 100,000 patrons each year. People from all walks of life enjoy the festival because it truly encapsulates multiculturalism in our city. The festa features an array of cultural food, folk dancing, market stalls, exhibitions and nonstop activities held across five stages. One of the event’s most exciting aspects is its iconic street parade, which transforms Paking-

Mayor Keith Fagg ton St into a lively, jam-packed festival. This year the extravagant parade will include 90 floats with hundreds of performers representing 45 affiliated ethnic communities and around 60 other organisations.

Ian Trezise MP Member for Geelong

greatly to Victoria and enrich the cultural fabric of our state. In particular, it is an excellent opportunity to get to know the work of local artisans from Geelong and its surrounding areas. Pako Festa has inspired other community groups throughout Victoria to organise and take part in their own events promoting cultural unity and, on behalf of the Victorian Government, I congratulate everyone involved, past and present, on such a successful festival. Above all, I wish everyone – whether you’re from Geelong or you’ve travelled to be here – an outstanding day at the 2013 Pako Festa.

Pako Festa lets people discover new traditions in a fun and practical way, opening doors to new cultures and customs. Last year Pako Festa injected an estimated $2.5 million into the local community, which was a great boost for our economy. Each year Diversitat does a fantastic job bringing Pako Festa to life. I highly commend Diversitat and thank all involved in any aspect of organising this wonderful festival, including the many volunteers from our community. Have a great day at Pako Festa!

movements, which cultivate and prolong life. “Master Yang’s system addresses issues such as stress, diabetes, insomnia, asthma, high blood pressure, poor circulation, depression and back pain “ Ms Newman says calligraphy yoga combines four areas: gigong, or energy movement training; tai chi, principles that focus on ying/yang balance; traditional Indian yoga; and the principles of Chinese calligraphy, linking all movements together to creating a natural, smooth flow. “This is truly a practice that everyone can do,” Ms Newman explains. “For me it’s like a meditation on motion. At any point in the day when things feel a little

overwhelming or I feel down on energy I can do as little as 20 minutes of calligraphy yoga practice and it will shift my perspective, re-energise me and give me a new place of calm to meet the day’s demands.” Master Yang says the goal of calligraphy yoga is “to prolong your life and to create internal energy, it is energy training for health”. Calligraphy yoga classes run weekly at the Pilates & Yoga Styles studio. Master Yang will be hold his workshops on 23 and 14 March 23. Ms Newman said anyone seeking more information should phone the studio on 5223 3531.

MANY of the wide variety of colourful costumes displayed every year at Pako Festa have something in common. They have drawn on the resources of Geelong’s oldest sewing and haberdashery business, Heights Sewing Centre. The family-owned-and-operated business has been going since 1935 in its familiar spot in Pakington St, right in the middle of the Pako Festa action every year. Whether it’s beads, braids or sewing machines, Ken Wilks and his staff are always ready to help new arrivals. In fact, Ken was on the original Pako Festa committee and has been involved with the annual parade for more than 30 years. “I was extremely pleased to be on the committee and involved with so many ethnic groups. It’s been a unique, wonderful festival where everyone gets together. “It’s taught the people who have been here that all the different foods, dancing and culture has added so much. It’s been a wonderful experi-

“We supply a lot of items for the costumes. They’re extremely talented in making their costumes – I don’t have to teach them how to sew, that’s for sure,” Ken laughed. “Each nationality has its own beads and braids and it always means something.”

Spot on with new arrivals

ONE OF the first ports of call for new arrivals to Geelong is often a furniture store – and for the best service and value for money they seek out the team at The Furniture Spot. Oli, John, Nick and Jess have been in the furniture business around Geelong for a long time and are well-known throughout the community. “We realise people often need a bit of assistance at first, so having staff who speak different languages helps a lot,” Oli explains. “Coming from different backgrounds, we realise how hard it’s to start over when you don’t understand the system. “It’s one of the reasons The Furniture Spot team supports Pako Festa so passionately. “Being of Macedonian heritage means I have some awareness of the challenges and how to help the local multicultural community. “Plus, as new arrivals settle in they also become business owners. Australia has been built on people coming from overseas, wherever they were from. Oli says Pako Festa creates

Rashida a part of Pako journey WHEN the now-famous Pako Festa started only one travel agency was on the street. But owner-manager Rashida Przastek is still looking after the multicultural community, helping members reconnect with their roots. Known then as Dalma Travel, the agency has been associated with Jetset since 1978, with the same friendly, helpful staff on board. Rashida herself participated in the parades and dressed in national costume, representing her home country of Pakistan. “We’ve been involved in Pako Festa since it began because an important part of our business is helping people to reconnect,” Rashida says.

“We have multilingual staff to help our clients because many of them prefer to come and talk to someone face to face. “I’m a people person, too, so I feel I can be in their shoes. I understand what people need to feel comfortable and have confidence in us.” Rashida is known as a legend of the travel industry, with more than 30 years of experience from her time working for Pakistan Airlines in Pakistan and Air India in London for many years. She enjoys the challenge of dealing with some of the lesstravelled places around the world to ensure her clients receive her personal guidance.

Country duo to rock Corio By MICHELLE HERBISON

COUNTRY BOYS: McAlister Kemp is bringing its high-energy show to Corio’s Gateway Hotel.

AS TROY Kemp grew older he switched to singing with an acoustic guitar after years of playing head-banging music on an electric instrument. Before long, people started telling him he sounded like a country singer. “I thought it was ridiculous,” laughs the former rocker, now one half of ARIA-nominated country duo McAlister Kemp. He decided to “give country music a crack”, teaming with Drew McAlister to create Australia’s answer to American country duos such as Brooks and Dunn. McAlister Kemp blends rock elements into country music, switching between high-energy party anthems and more-brooding songs reflecting on life and its issues. The duo has enjoyed major successes including a string of ARIA and Tamworth Country Music Festival awards and nominations, performing with US country superstar Alan Jackson and at Nashville’s prestigious CMA Music Festival. “It’s been amazing,” Kemp enthused. “We’re really starting to feel growth around the whole project. We’re going back to towns and doubling or tripling the numbers that were there last time.” Kemp said he appreciated the strong support from Geelong fans and venues but lamented that the band often faced difficulties

booking gigs in cities such as Melbourne. “Unfortunately, the doors get slammed in your face. Modern country has really evolved and three-quarters of Australia doesn’t even know country music is cool. “Geelong’s one of those places that’s worth going back to.” Kemp and McAlister co-wrote most of the songs on their two albums, Country Proud and All Kinds of Tough, while living about three hours apart in rural New South Wales. This year the pair plans intensive “getaways” to write without family distractions. “We really try hard to write songs people can relate to about life – not fluffy boy-girl love songs,” Kemp explained. “We’re both 40 years old now, so we’ve been through a lot and we can draw on our own experiences.” Fans at an upcoming gig at Corio’s Gateway Hotel could expect a high-energy show with plenty of crowd involvement, he said. “We play upbeat, catchy, sing-along type country rock songs then we’ll smack you on the head with a ballad that almost makes you cry. “Then we’ll go for it again and play another party song.” Tickets to see McAlistar Kemp perform in Corio on 8 March are available at www.thegatewayhotel.com.au

TRUNK CALL: Back to Back brings its Ganesh Versus the Third Reich to Geelong next week. “It’s about power and how someone can be manipulated into the service of another. This can also relate to parents and children, teachers and students or a director and a group of actors.” Gladwin said Back to Back Theatre’s small core group of actors, who were “perceived to have an intellectual disability”, brought their own idiosyncrasies to the stage. The company’s works touched on issues surrounding living with a disability in society but the ultimate objective was “to make great art”, he explained.

Back to Back Theatre’s actors included former Nelson Park College students and a ex-champion gymnast, all working full-time with the company, Gladwin said. “Most haven’t been through traditional training courses so they’re very human, with difference in speech patterns, movement and aesthetic. Each is unique and the audience is struck by a sense of difference,” Gladwin mused. GPAC will present Ganesh versus the Third Reich from 28 February and 3 March.

INTERNATIONALLY acclaimed stage-show Ganesh versus the Third Reich is coming home to Geelong after a string of successful shows across three continents. Local company Back to Back Theatre is excited about a season at Geelong Performing Arts Centre (GPAC) after successes in New York, LA and European venues since the show’s debut at Melbourne’s Malthouse Theatre in 2011. Artistic director Bruce Gladwin said Ganesh Versus the Third Reich touched on moral and ethical complications, telling the story of Indian god Ganesh travelling to Nazi Germany to reclaim the swastika. The play operated on many levels as a concurrent storyline following the relationship between a group of actors and a director developing a production of the story. Gladwin said the storyline somewhat mimicked the nature of Back to Back Theatre’s story production, with the group of intellectually-disabled actors developing their works through discussion and improvisation without a “single author”. “It’s a fictionalised autobiography in a way but we never want the truth to get in the way of a good story,” he smiled. “There are moments when the audience is pushed to think about a diverse range of subjects of power and cultural implications. It sounds heavy but the work is also funny.

THE BEST thing to happen to running has arrived – a book on how to run the lazy way. Just-released Lazy Runner covers all aspects of running and includes funny stories and more than 50 interesting statistics. Australian marathon legend Robert de Castella wrote the foreword after reading the book and even referring to himself as a lazy runner. The original lazy runner, author Marie Bean has been running for 25 years and has coached counterparts for the past seven. She has completed 12 marathons and last year started running ultramarathons at the age of 50. Bean considers her absence of any injuries over the past quarter of a century as her biggest claim to fame as a runner. She puts it down to her “lazy-runner attitude”. She runs for fun, health and fitness as part of a lazy running philosophy with no place for injury and pain. After fielding countless questions from runners in her time as a coach, she decided she had to write a book on running the lazy way.

DARTS VICTORIA’S 2013 EASTER CLASSIC:

GROVEDALE’S Sandstone Cafe has just celebrated its second year of delighting diners with quality food and service. Head chef Simon Parrott describes Sandstone as a “restaurant disguised as a cafe”, nestled in suburbia. Simon believes the cafe encourages diners to embrace the region’s emerging quality dining and cafe culture. “Geelong previously lacked quality food and service outside the CBD but people are now recognising the importance of solid suburban venues,” he says. Simon celebrates the cafe’s contemporary Australia menu with a seafood specialty. “For quality-cooked fish, visit us.” Sandstone Cafe is family-friendly and will cater to everyone’s dietary requirement. Sandstone Cafe also hosts birthday, wedding and corporate functions as well as offering off-site catering. The venue can host 130 guests for stand-up functions or 85 at seated events. The cafe’s courtyard is perfect for breakfast and lunch this spring, open seven days. Diners sitting inside can enjoy the sun through the cafe’s big windows. “It’s a very bright, warm venue,” Simon says. The fully licensed venue is also open for dinner from 6pm Fridays and Saturdays, with a wide variety of local wines, beers and ciders available. Sandstone Cafe is at 284 Torquay Rd, phone 5244 2343 or visit www.sandstonecafe.com.au.

THESE big Mitsubishi family cars have a well-deserved reputation for being smooth and refined and in its early days the Magna made Holden’s Commodore and Ford’s Falcon rather ordinary in the noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) stakes. Mitsubishi Verada was the name given to upmarket versions of the Magna and is sometimes regarded as a different model, though in reality, it’s just a Magna with plenty of extra kit stuffed inside. All were built in Adelaide. The first Magnas were very much Australian products, later they became more closely allied to Japanese Mitsubishi models. The Mitsubishi 380 was based on an American Mitsubishi model and was larger and plusher than the Magna. This once-successful line of cars came to an abrupt end in April 2008 after slow sales of the 380 caused Mitsubishi to pull out of Australian manufacturing. In hindsight if the company had simply called the 380 the next generation Magna, the Adelaide factory might still be in operation today. Body types are four-door sedan and five-door station wagon in the Magna/Verada, but the 380 was only built as a sedan. Engine performance from the oldstyle four-cylinder 2.6-litre engine is reasonable, but only just. The later four-cylinder models had a 2.4-litre unit with a much-improved design. Four-cylinder models slowly declined in popularity over the years and were finally removed from the Magna range in 1999. Those on the used-car market now are likely to be near the end of their lives, though it must be said they are tough old units. A 3.0-litre V6 engine was released in the Mitsubishi Verada in 1991 and the Magna in 1993. It was joined by a 3.5-litre V6 in some upmarket variants in October 1996. The bigger engine gradually spread to the rest of the range. In the later-model Magna Sports and VR-X, the 3.5 engine has additional power over the standard unit. The Mitsubishi 380’s 3.8-litre en-

gine is a stretched version of the 3.5-litre unit. There is good torque throughout the normally used zone of the rev range and the 3.8 is very pleasant to sit behind. Magna is offered with a five-speed manual gearbox, but the great majority of the original cars came with a fourspeed automatic. A sequential shifting was first fitted on four-speed Magna Sports models from September 1997. An advanced five-speed automatic transmission with a sequential shifter is fitted to the sporty variants sold from August 2000 and made its way to the other models over the next couple of years. Mitsubishi 380 came with a fivespeed automatic transmission or a five-speed manual gearbox. Mitsubishi’s Magna offers the extra traction of all-wheel drive in some sports variants to give the car a real sporty feeling. These all-wheel drives are a real pleasure to punt hard and fast and keen drivers love their feel and grip. But they were never popular and could be hard to resell. These big Mitsubishis are spacious in their under-bonnet area so servicing is relatively easy for amateur mechanics to carry out servicing. Make sure to get a professional mechanic for safetyrelated work. Spare parts for cars up to 10 years old are still carried by Mitsubishi dealers. Prices are generally reasonable and we seldom hear of any real availability problems. Automatic transmission problems have dogged these Mitsubishis but troubles are less frequent in newer models than in older ones. Watch for an automatic that shifts gear when it doesn’t need to or suddenly shifts into neutral of its own accord. Look at and feel the front tyres for uneven wear, which can indicate front suspension problems. Check the paint and bumper bar around the exhaust tailpipe for an oily film, indicating engine problems. Make sure the brakes pull the car up in a straight line and that ABS, if fitted, sends a pulsing back through the pedal on hard application. Don’t forget to check your mirrors first!

FAMILY owned and operated Barwon Tyre Centre is expanding its repertoire, now offering a full range of mechanical repairs. Tyre service customers can now avail themselves of the same personal service, customer care and attention to detail for their mechanical needs. To accommodate the expanded services, Barwon Tyre Centre is moving from its Settlement Rd address to 1 Curtis St, Belmont. Owner Graeme McMahon said customers could still expect the same fast, affordable tyre service. “My priority remains seeing my customers stay safe and sound by trusting only quality tyres,” he said. Barwon Tyre Centre stocks a wide range of tyres to suit all vehicles, big or small. The complete range of services from minor tyre repairs to wheel alignments and balances and complete tyre sets are also available. Graeme’s seen a lot of tyres over the years and knows how to spot the good from the bad. “Tyres are your contact with the road. Making sure that they are in the best condition possible ensures that you are as safe and in control as possible,” he said. “We take our job seriously and we know how important tyres are to road safety. “We perform alignments and balancing and we can advise you on the most appropriate wheels and tyres for your needs.” Call Barwon Tyre Centre on 5241 1944 or check the website at barwontyrecentre.com.au.

IT’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 his 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.” He 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 says. Gary’s recently renovated workshop boasts the latest in diagnostic and scanner equipment. “We’re proud of the quality of all work we undertake and our competitive rates.” Keleman Motors is at shop 3, 13 Crown St, South Geelong, phone 5229 9555.

IndySport Indy Sport Cats late in dominant display GEELONG Cricket Club had a day out last Saturday as the Cats completely out-played St Kilda on day one of their round-18 clash. Bowling first, the Cats took just 19.4 overs to rout the Saints for just 50 runs. Jake Reed, 4/15, was the star with a hat trick, while Marc Carson, Cam Alford and Dom McGlinchey all chipped in with two wickets each. In reply, Hayden Buterworth, 74, and Luke Muller, 35, ensured a comprehensive first-day victory before a declaration was made at 9/203. With 15 overs still remaining, Marc Carson snared 3/6 from three overs to have the Saints once again reeling at 3/35 at stumps.

The Cats should be able to complete a dominant outright victory tomorrow, although one fears it might be too little too late as far as finals are concerned. Moving into the final round of Geelong Cricket Associations season, one last spot remains up for grabs in this season’s finals, with sixth placed Leopold hoping to hold out seventh placed St Joseph’s.

The Lions take on lowly Geelong City and they’ll be thanking their lucky stars they’re drawn to play at home and not run the risk of uneven batting conditions at Richmond Crescent. Meanwhile, St Joseph’s will take on Grovedale, whose form in the second half of the season has been a complete contrast to its early form when the team lost their its three games. With Leopold and Grovedale the expected winners in these crucial games, it looks like the final six is set. Other selections: Highton v LARA, Bell Post Hill v NEWTOWN & CHILWELL, North Geelong V SOUTH BARWON, EAST BELMONT v Geelong West.

The division two finalists are far from set, with eight teams still a real chance to contest the cup in March. While sixth placed Newcomb & District faces the tough task of needing to defeat the strong Manifold Heights lineup, all the teams around them face comparatively easier tasks. Fifth placed St Alban’s Breakwater should account for Marshall, seventh placed Torquay looks too strong for Alexander Thomson and it’s hard to see eighth placed Waurn Ponds dropping its guard against Guild St Mary’s. If results go as expected, Torquay could quite easily leapfrog Newcomb & District and claim the coveted last spot. Other selections: ST PETER’S v

Modewarre, Thomson v MURGHEBOLUC. In division three, barring an unlikely outright Inverleigh and Teesdale look like being the unfortunate teams to miss the finals because they sit seventh and eighth respectively. While Inverleigh can still mathematically make the finals, it’s hard to see Teesdale losing outright and therefore, after a topsy turvy season, Winchelsea should retain its spot at six and march on through to the play-offs. Selections: LITTLE RIVER v Winchelsea, CORIO v North Shore, LETHBRIDGE v Bell Park, MEREDITH v Bannockburn, Teesdale v INVERLEIGH, Shelford Bye.

Hot weather rocks on for anglers as salmon scorch the surf along coast On the

bite Brian Long

ANGLERS contended with some scorching temperatures over the past week to report some excellent captures, especially from the surf. The breeze was generally onshore but the salmon pushed bait in close to the rocks in numerous locations between Devils Elbow and Wye River. Casting lures was the standout method, with any number of salmon to 2kg available. Small lures were best, with the fish feeding on small whitebait. Lures around 30g were ideal. Troy Harrison found salmon close to Sheoaks River last weekend. Troy estimated he caught and released over 50 fish in two days. Nearby, Adam Hunt also got into the action. He struggled to cast small lures into the head wind but still managed 10 salmon, his biggest 2.3kg. Black Rock hosted reasonable numbers of anglers but only those fishing late reported the best captures of snapper and whiting. Paul Johnson caught a bag limit of snapper to around 1.5kg on squid strips. Joseph Napoli fished 13th Beach for a mixed bag of whiting, snapper, salmon and a small gummy shark. Joseph also saw an angler landed a salmon over 3kg nearby. Small mulloway were caught in the Barwon River estuary on squid and pilchards, with after dark best for this species.

MAKO MY DAY: Rolf Werske with a typical mako shark caught off Barwon Heads. Anglers fishing the estuary with shrimp or bass yabby also caught quality bream two hours either side of high tide. Todd McCarthy trolled for kingfish in The Rip without luck but caught plenty of salmon. Todd had success with a deepdiving Sebile Koolie minnow because the fish were not working the surface as consistently as normal.

Small kingfish began to appear offshore, with jigging the best option. Collendina was productive in around 25m of water. Boat anglers fishing offshore between The Rip and Torquay also reported good numbers of mako sharks, the biggest close to 100kg but most averaging around half that weight.

Makos were caught on both the 70m line in just 35m of water. Anglers fishing near the entrance to Swan Bay found a variety of species, especially when using berley. Whiting, flathead and garfish were present but some big tailor made for a change, with Terry Sharp landing a magnificent 2.8kg specimen early Monday morning.

Squid anglers struggled, although Edwards Point and the inshore grass beds off Hermsley fished well at first light. Snapper reports were mainly to anglers fishing bait in 20m directly out from St Leonards but anglers using soft plastics in and around the outer-harbour spoil grounds had the best results. Xavier Knowles fished soft plastics on the spoil straight out from Pelican Shores Caravan Park where he landed his bag limit of snapper, the best a respectable 3.7kg. Bruce Palmer fished close in at Bird Rock where he took bag-limit captures of whiting on a consistent basis. Most of his fish averaged 33cm and took South Australian pippies. Hot weather slowed trout captures at Lake Tooliorrok but anglers who waited until late in the afternoon and fished right up until dark were able to troll up both browns and rainbows. Gold-coloured Tassie Devils remained the best lure. Lake Purrumbete also produced quality trout for anglers trolling but downriggers yielded the best results when set about 10m deep. The Barwon River in Geelong had an influx of algae, slowing the redfin captures right down. Carp were still caught between Queen’s Park and Breakwater but anglers should be careful to avoid contact with the water. Anyone seeking a quality kingfish should consider a trip to Port Fairy where anglers slow-trolling with famous white Slug Go soft plastics have been landing awesome fish to 18kg, although the average weight has been generally half this size.
