equitable opportunities.” Ms Taylor said the deportation fears arose when her partner applied for an extension to a tourist visa while finalising a de facto application in December. The pair received an email last week stating Ms Benger’s request had been denied and therefore would have to return to the UK. But a subsequent visit to the Melbourne immigration office found the email was incorrect. “If any other couple had to go through the challenges we’ve been through I don’t think their relationship would last,” Ms Taylor said. The immigration department said they introduced same-sex policy into Commonwealth law from July 1, 2009. The changes included the recognition of same-sex couples for migration and citizenship purposes to ensure same-sex de facto partners had the same rights and responsibilities as heterosexual partners. Member for Corangamite Darren Cheeseman said he would meet with the couple to discuss the case further. “I am more than happy to meet with Rebecca and Jay and advocate on their behalf if there’s any level of discrimination within the rules and regulations,” he said.

BY ERIN PEARSON A NEWTOWN resident feared deportation after an immigration department error during a longrunning fight to remain with her Geelong-based same sex partner. The couple said they had been unfairly treated by the immigration department as they fought for residency status. They said the unfair treatment stemmed from members in the Department who were “unsure” of how to handle their case. Rebecca Taylor and her English partner Jay Benger said there was a lack of visa options available for same-sex couples. “Jay came out here on a tourist visa initially and we knew from the outset the next step would be to apply for a de facto visa,” Ms Taylor said. “But when we began making enquiries it became very obvious very quickly that the immigration department didn’t know how to deal with us. “Because we can’t get married in this country we had no other option but to apply for a de facto visa which is around $2000 more expensive than a fiancé visa. “If the federal government isn’t prepared to make a change so we can get married they have to make sure we have fair and

Icon deadline JANUARY prompts entries

THE NUMBER of entries to the Icon for Geelong competition is ramping up with the deadline fast approaching. Constant calls, emails and letters about the Icon for Geelong competition have flowed in from top architects to architectural students and local families. The competition is seeking a landmark of artistic merit and beauty to promote Geelong around the world – and Senia Lawyers is offering $10,000 to the winning design. Principal Andrew Senia said he was extremely pleased the competition was drawing a high calibre entries from architects, including Melbourne’s Simon Hill. Mr Hill has worked on significant projects including a $4 million multi purpose community facility in Daylesford, extensions to global agribusiness Rijk Zwaan Australia’s property near Daylesford, concept work for a proposed $6m to $10m Cycle Gallery, a proposed Eco Tourist Development and a marine research centre tourist development. Mr Senia visited the Gold Coast during the Christmas break to check out Broadbeach’s iconic twin Oracle apartment buildings. He said the design of the buildings, by leading architects DBI, “echoed the changing coastline with its elliptical lines”. The two 40- and 50-storey Oracle towers have 505 apartments, a five-star hotel, shops and commercial office space and are among the tallest on the Gold Coast. Leading businessman Frank Costa earlier threw his support behind Geelong’s icon being a significant new building. Mr Costa suggested an iconic building providing both an attraction for tourists while serving a practical purpose. “Balfours corner could host a 10-storey building with fantastic views over the bay,” Mr Costa suggested.

Alfie’s looking for a lifesaver

Mystery murder

Four more GEELONG will receive four more police as part of 275 allocations across the state, Victorian Police command has announced. The announcement said the positions would be “rolled out over the coming months”.

Safety grants SEVEN Geelong community groups received $10,000 each as part of $1 million in Community Safety Fund grants announced by Minister for Crime Prevention Andrew McIntosh. Local recipients included Australian Volunteer Coast Guard Association, East Geelong Men’s Shed, Highton Bowls Club and Neighbourhood Watch.

Jetski drifter POLICE say a 29-year-old Shepparton man is lucky to be alive after drifting all night on his jet ski in waters off Point Lonsdale. Police were called after his jet ski developed mechanical difficulties at Torquay.

Policing youth in state first BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG police will man a new dedicated youth unit this year in an unprecedented crackdown on crime. The six member unit, a first for Victoria, will focus on the prevention and enforcement of crimes including theft of and from motor vehicles, residential burglaries and commercial burglaries. Geelong Police Inspector Chris Gawne told the Independent the unit, planned for activation in the coming weeks, was a vital step in clamping down on unruly and illegal behaviour. He said youth, particularly those aged 10 to 17, needed to know there

were consequences for their actions. “Geelong youth are overrepresented in the state average so we can’t put up with this any longer,” he said. “State-wide we sit eighth on the high risk community areas so our aim for 2012 is to get out of the top 10. Insp Gawne said the unit, which will collaborate with Department of Human Services, the Education Department, Barwon Youth and Geelong’s council, also required the help of parents. He said boundaries needed to be set. “Parents need to set standards and expectations and make sure you know where your kids are and what they are

doing. “It’s not just about enforcement it’s a partnership between police and the community.” Geelong Police Sergeant Megan Williamson has worked as a youth resource officer for 12 months. She said the role was “very challenging” but vital. “We have a lot of issues with our young people down this way so it’s vital we link in with other agencies to tackle the problems,” she said. “We’ve got to the point now where we’ve got to try something different.” Barwon Youth chief executive officer Shane Murphy welcomed the news.

He said much of the region’s youth faced unsavory problems that stemmed from family breakdowns. Many then fell into unlawful behaviour, he said. “When you have dysfunctional families and kids fall into a degree of uncertainly in where they can live safely it creates problems. “If kids aren’t prepared to take direction from their parents they often won’t take direction from anyone. “We’d welcome any commitment from police to work with non government agencies such as ours to combat these issues.”

New scanner cuts recovery time for injured players INJURED players can expect to get back in the game faster thanks to a new high-tech scanner installed recently in Geelong, according to Cats operations manager Neil Balme. “The detail and speed of the new scanner means the medics will know exactly what treatment is needed and how soon the player can start playing again,” he said. Lake Imaging’s Professor Alex Pitman said the XCT had “lifted the bar in medical diagnosis” to a new level.

Prof Pitman said the new $1 million XCT hybrid scanner was brought from the USA and installed at St John of God Hospital. “Applications for the XCT range from sporting injuries to cardiac and renal functions and cancers. “It will be used by everyone from adults to the youngest of children and is the first scanner of its type to be made available to the public in Victoria. “Steve Johnson got his injury just before the XCT was installed, but virtually all the players have been checked out by various advanced scanners in the

2011 season. “It is now possible to see with astonishing accuracy how the body is functioning internally in a simple and non-invasive procedure. “The XCT will help make treatment more timely and effective, in many cases remove the need for biopsy or invasive surgery, is a more accurate way to measure the progress of treatments and will be a great reassurance to patients, their doctors and the Geelong Cats.”

FEDERAL and state governments have contributed $34 million to a $103 million funding package guaranteeing Ford Falcon and Territory production until 2016. Acting Premier Peter Ryan said the financial support would “strengthen Geelong’s position as a major automotive centre”.

Region poled POWERCOR says it is carrying out safety inspections of power poles across the Geelong region. Inspectors will check the condition of pole tops using cameras mounted on telescopic rods to identify potentially faulty electrical equipment.

BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG Animal Welfare Society is asking residents to dig deep this New Year to give the gift of life. Six week old pup Alfie is in urgent need of lifesaving leg surgery but staff at the shelter are struggling to come up with the thousands of dollars needed. Acting manager Belinda Russo said the German shorthair pointer was surrendered to council in “appalling condition” with a broken leg and an abscess. Ms Russo said the dog’s leg had been broken so long it had begun to heal incorrectly. The shelter hoped someone would sponsor the pup’s recovery. “We’ve got all the right resources for the poor little guy we just need some financial help because this type of orthopedic surgery will cost thousands,” she said. “Our costs have skyrocketed since we’ve adopted our no kill policy and although we remain committed to this we do need public assistance. “Our staff have embraced this little baby and we hope Geelong will too.” Ms Russo said surgery would cost around $2000. Alfie would then require six weeks of care, she said. “These cases just break our hearts because the dog is so young and so vulnerable.” The Independent last month reported that a spate of animal cruelty cases had shocked shelter staff. Ms Russo said the centre had been “overwhelmed” with community support that followed. Staffy cross bull dog Bronson, who appeared on the front page of the Independent on December 23, has since been adopted.

HOMICIDE Squad detectives are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of 49-year-old Drysdale resident Russell Hammond. Mr Hammond’s burned and bound body was found on vacant land near Broderick Rd, Corio, while his green 1996 Mercedes sedan was found set alight in a paddock off Portarlington Rd, Leopold. Police urge anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or to visit crimestoppers.com.au.

Train the trainer in fundraising twist cer or a treatment to make the road to recovery “that little bit easier”. “People have to work so hard to rebuild their fitness after fighting the cancer itself,” she said. “Losing my hair will be really hard for me but I hope it’s something that can motivate others to put a part of them on the line to make a difference in the life of a cancer sufferer.” Leukaemia Foundation fundraising manager Meaghan Bush said World’s Greatest Shave was looking for around 7000 Victorians to raise $3.2 million. “We encourage everyone to register as early as possible so they have the opportunity to raise the needed funds for our organisation,” she said. “One thing blood cancer doesn’t do is discriminate, it affects all types of people from all different backgrounds in all age groups.” Blood cancer is the biggest killer in Australia after lung cancer, according to the Leukaemia Foundation.

Fire fear fueled by cracker explosion BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG firefighters are warning the region against firecrackers after an Independent investigation revealed many were lit in high fire danger areas. Region operations manager Gerry Verdoorn sent out the warning this week after it was revealed firecracker use was at an all time high. Mr Verdoorn said the CFA had noticed there was “definitely more” illegal fireworks activity around. “We’ve had phone calls from both firefighters and residents reporting cracker usage and some are quite large,” he said. “It’s of real concern for us. “Even on a day that’s not hot fireworks can get stuck in vegetation or around the home and cause a fire. “It’s not confined to a rural area.” Mr Verdoorn said people knew firecrackers were illegal and often hid in high

risk fire areas out of view when lighting them. “I live in Torquay and since New Year’s Eve every night we’ve had fire works,” he said. Fed up residents from across Geelong, the Bellarine and Surf Coast have reported the use of illegal crackers to the Independent. Belmont, Bell Post Hill and Norlane have been identified as hot spots. The Independent last week reported a rise in firecracker use on New Year’s Eve in Torquay. Senior Sergeant Angelo Ferrara said the use of firecrackers “stood out” as a real problem this year with three people charged. In one incident a cracker was thrown under a patrol horse and the uniformed rider was thrown to the ground. The warning follows the death of Tarneit father of two Carlos Rodriguez, 34, who died days after a firework

exploded in his face at a New Year’s Eve celebration. Some Independent readers said the firecrackers had gone off each night since December 31. Others reported them being thrown at pedestrians and into high risk fire danger areas. But some came out in support of the pyrotechnics and said they were all right as long as they were used correctly. Victoria Police said anyone caught in possession of firecrackers faced fines of up to $10,000. Fireworks starting a bushfire resulting in death attracted a jail sentence up to 25 years. Worksafe said around 42,000 fireworks weighing more than 5000 kilograms were confiscated in Victoria last year. In 2010 only about 6500 fireworks weighing around 350kg were seized, Worksafe said.

Writs issued against council BY MICHELLE HERBISON CITY of Greater Geelong has been sued for a personal injury for the second time in as many weeks. Dawn McKinnon of Drumcondra is taking legal action against the City and Geelong Performing Arts Centre (GPAC) after she claimed to suffer leg injuries from a slip on wet pavement in October 2008. The writ, lodged on December 22, came just days after Taylors Lakes father Joseph Di Benedetto sued the City for negligence. Mr Benedetto claimed to have received eye injuries when a lifeguard “insisted” he enter Leisurelink’s pool when a child came down the waterslide and kicked him. Mrs McKinnon’s claim for “personal injury, loss and damage” states the defendants and their workers acted negligently and breached a duty of care defined in 14B of the Wrongs Act 1958 (Vic).

The writ states the tiled and brick pavement outside GPAC caused Mrs McKinnon to slip because it was wet and covered in fallen leaves. Mrs McKinnon, who was 60 at the time, suffered injuries to her left foot, ankle and leg. She is claiming for damages, interest and costs. The writ states that “at all material times” Mrs McKinnon was “a lawful entrant on the premises” and the defendants were responsible for the “care, control and management of the premises”. Geelong’s County Court has not set a hearing date. City of Greater Geelong general manager corporate services Jeff Wall said the matter was being managed by council’s insurers in line with the claim management process. GPAC general manager Jill Smith was unavailable for comment.

Lee Nieto of Zest Personal Training said the person who donated the highest amount of money could not only shave off her curls but also train her in an hour long work out. The Geelong West mother-ofthree said she would shave the trademark blonde locks she had been growing for 12 months to honor clients she had trained and mourned following battles with cancer. “It’s so hard to watch someone work so hard to achieve their fitness peak only to have it stolen away by cancer,” she said. “Cancer doesn’t care if you’re fit and healthy or not.” Ms Nieto said she wanted to raise $15,000 to help find a cure for can-

Community register gives peace of mind BY ERIN PEARSON GEELONG police are encouraging parents and carers of children with autism, down syndrome and other conditions to register their details as part of a new regional initiative. Launching the Geelong Community Support Register on Wednesday Corio Police Senior Sergeant Adrian Bickley said the record would give police fast access to detailed information about a person and their health issues in an emergency. The register until now only held personal information provided by those in need of community support including elderly persons and those living alone or in isolat-

ed locations. Sen Sgt Bickley said the database would provide police with contact information, nicknames, physical descriptions, known routines, behaviour triggers and favourite attractions. “In an emergency it’s sometimes difficult to pull that kind of information together quickly so having easy access to those details will be extremely valuable,” he said. “Children with autism, for example, are sometimes known to wander off so the register offers parents and carers the confidence that medical and personal information can be securely accessed by emergency services staff if required.” Volunteered information would

be stored on a confidential database and only accessed by police, ambulance, hospital and fire services in an emergency. Gateways Support Services chief executive officer Rosemary Malone said the initiative was fantastic. “For families living with someone who has the potential to abscond or wander off they live with that fear all the time of the gate being left open. For them this will be so very positive,” she said. “It’s great to know the police are there for people in that hour of need but this proactive measure could mean the difference between a good or tragic outcome. For more information visit geelongregister.org.au.

Holiday hangout beats boredom GEELONG teens are being urged to step away from televisions and into public libraries as part of an initiative to boost youth membership, according to Geelong library. Children and Youth Services coordinator Maryanne Hyde said all activities as part of the library’s school holiday program were free, arts-based and creative. “From Wii gaming to the latest music, e-books, new release DVDs, drama workshops, and cartooning, libraries are a great place for youth to hang out,” she said. Youth-specific classes include workshops on cartooning, drama, Manga art, blogging, animation, book art, journalism and magazine production. The holiday program runs until January 27. For more information visit geelonglibraries.vic.gov.au.

Summer camp full of memories HIGH ropes courses, flying foxes, canoeing, mini golf, basketball and swimming are just some of the activities 60 lucky Geelong children are trying this week at Licola Wildnerness camp. These life-long memories will be thanks to the Lions Club of Geelong Corio Bay which has sponsored the primary school-age children to attend the five-day camp. The diverse range of children includes new migrants, children on child protection orders, parentally bereaved children and Wathaurong Aboriginal community members. Lions Club of Geelong Corio Bay president Denis Barritt said the camp helped less privileged children “enjoy themselves” in the holiday season instead of “worrying”. “They have a wow of a week with lots of supervision and lots of exercise. We load them up with good food and give them enough activities to make them sleep well at night,” he said.

Diversitat’s Suzanne Cooper said 19 children from Geelong’s new communities would attend, mainly Karenni people from Burma and Congolese. “It’s incredibly exciting because for all of them its the first time they’ve been able to go away from parents and have a holiday. “They will have opportunities to mix with a range of kids, build understanding and learn how to work in teams.” Ms Cooper said the camp was also an education opportunity for new migrant parents. Glastonbury’s Sandra Cameron said her organisation had arranged 10 children on child protection orders for the camp. “Currently these kids can’t live at home, so this camp gives them new experiences and challenges their boundaries.” She said this was the second year Glastonbury participated and last year was “fantastic”.

Pedestrian safety blitz BY ERIN PEARSON ROADSAFE Barwon is urging pedestrians to look left and right before crossing the road to prevent unnecessary injury and death. Recently-released provisional road toll statistics showed pedestrians accounted for 50 fatalities in 2011 up 28 per cent, according to chair Rod Bennett. Mr Bennett said road accidents involving pedestrians across the Geelong region was an “ongoing” problem. He said laziness and impatience were the biggest causes. “People seem to have a real lack of respect for the road rules here at times,” Mr Bennett said. “We are taught as children to look left and right so I’d really encourage parents to help pass on the message also.” Victorian Deputy Police Commissioner

Kieran Walshe said the force would focus on vulnerable road users, including pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists, in 2012. Mr Walshe, head of Road Policing, said an analysis of pedestrian deaths in 2011 showed 40 per cent of pedestrians killed were aged 30 to 59. Males ranked higher accounting for 64 per cent but elderly pedestrians marked the biggest rise with 13 of those killed aged over 80, an 86 per cent increase. The majority of pedestrians killed were at fault, Mr Walshe said. “We are looking at what we can do to

raise awareness of pedestrian safety. “We know there are issues with people rushing to catch public transport or looking down at mobile phones, tablet computers, MP3 players and other devices. “But we also have identified an issue with our older community members being over-represented in this road trauma, and we will need to look at the causal factors behind this.” Last year 288 people lost their lives on Victorian roads. Transport Accident Commission Road Safety Manager, Samantha Cockfield called on all Victorian’s to make a New Year’s resolution to help reduce the road toll. She said while TAC and its partner road safety agencies would continue to work on improving the safety of cars and roads, all Victorians had an important role to play in improving driver and pedestrian behaviour.

Resident fights multiple smart meters BY MICHELLE HERBISON A GEELONG West resident is fighting the installation of up to 16 smart meters on the back of his bedroom wall amid health concerns. Disability pensioner Issy Bitic said he was worried radiation from the smart meters set to be installed between January 10 and 23 could further impact his health. “The government is telling us they’re safe but they said that about asbestos. They may as well put a mobile phone tower on our block,” he said.

Mr Bitic said he had written letters to Powercor and local State Labor member Ian Trezise arguing against the meters’ installation but had received little support. The letters included a petition with signatures from most residents of the Lawton Ave housing commission block. Radiation protection products company YSHIELD’s David Mould said Mr Bitic’s case was “worrying”. “He is going to experience 16 times the intensity of radiation than other people and it’s from an external influence he has no control over.”

A Government report by EMC Technologies found radiation levels inside houses with smart meters were between 0.000001 per cent and 0.0113 per cent of limits. A Powercor spokesperson said smart meters sent radio messages four times a day that were “half the strength of a mobile phone sending a text message”. Residents could arrange to have meters relocated but they must first employ an electrician then arrange a truck appointment at a cost of $464.

Boat safety warning

Part of the

BY MICHELLE HERBISON MORE boats and personal water-craft are using Barwon Heads’ waterways every year, according to land managers. Barwon Coast’s Maddie Glynn said the swarms of boats and jetskis needed to respect swimmers and marine life in the Barwon estuary. Water police Senior Sergeant Steve Towers said this summer was providing prime conditions for boating, with one-in-three Victorians now owning a boat. He said strike teams would be patrolling all areas around Geelong, Bellarine and Surf Coast during summer. “Our strike teams travel around and may just turn up unplanned,” Sen Sgt On patrol: Parks Victoria and fisheries staff Catherine Towers said. He warned boat users to be ready James, Paddy Hernon, Mike Philip, Stuart Willsher, for breath tests and checks of safety Maddie Glynn and Laurie Dri. gear including life jackets.

Councillor stoush BY MICHELLE HERBISON A CODE of conduct panel to investigate Queenscliffe councillor David Mitchell’s behaviour is based on “ludicrous” charges, according to a former councillor. David Kenwood said council’s “singling out” of Cr Mitchell at last month’s meeting was “smalltown politics at its worst”. Queenscliffe council last month voted for a $40,000 code of conduct panel to investigate Cr Mitchell for eight alleged breaches of the code. The accusations against Cr Mitchell include disrespectful language to fellow councillors, discourteous and intimidating treatment of council staff and acting against the chief executive officer’s advice.

“They’ve taken the only effective councillor they’ve got and dragged him off to a public crucifixion. As a former councillor, I think if they fail to prove their case, the chief executive officer and the mayor should both resign,” Mr Kenwood said. He said Queenscliffe council lacked “meaningful debate”. “Cr Mitchell is the only councillor who’s actually asking questions and doing his best to get to the bottom of issues and find out the truth.” Point Lonsdale community member Rob Wallis described the misconduct allegations as a “character assassination” that sent a message to Cr Mitchell’s voters that their opinions “don’t matter”. “This goes far beyond one man and his reputation. It is about the

right of citizens to elect councillors that will represent their interests,” he said. “This is a witch-hunt because he asks hard questions and the others don’t like it.” Queenscliffe Mayor Bob Merriman said a code of conduct panel was necessary because the Borough had “exhausted all other options”. “The inefficiencies and waste of time that Cr Mitchell has cost us far outweighs the $40,000. I have had a significant number of people from the community call me and say, ‘well done, it’s about time,’” he said. Cr Merriman said problems with Cr Mitchell had begun in 2008. “The other councillors ask hard questions as well, but they do so adhering to the code of conduct.”

Silent games gain deafening approval rating IT’S AN interesting experience “talking” with Stan Batson. The Geelong ambassador extraordinaire for the Australian Deaf Games – and for people with hearing impairments generally – is a ball of energy despite his advancing years. No spare sheet of paper is safe when Stan is around and before long it’s covered in his hurried scrawl as his pen tries to keep up with his brain. Stan makes it clear from the outset that he has no hearing and no speech as he searches for white space on the sheet, pen at the ready. The normal three communications dimensions of seeing, hearing and speaking are suddenly reduced to sight only as Stan sets about inscribing his thoughts. A keen historian, Stan has an outline of the Geelong deaf community at the ready. Stan is a part-time history researcher for the National Institute for deaf Studies at La Trobe University. The references begin in 1903 with a committee meeting of the Adult Deaf and Dumb Mission of

Join the club JOHN VAN KLAVEREN Victoria, with church services held at All Saints. In 1931 the first social evening for deaf people in Geelong was held with the formation of a regional committee. But it wasn’t until 1969 that serious discussions began about starting a club in Geelong. Although plans to purchase land and build a club premises never transpired, the Geelong Deaf Social Group has been going since, celebrating a 40th anniversary in 2008. “The Geelong Deaf Social Group is still very active with 30 members,” Stan wrote. “Most are older people with a hearing impairment, but we use AUSLAN (sign language). “We meet to cheer ourselves up

every second Tuesday of the month and we share information with each other about health and dealing with problems in daily life. “We hold outings if the weather is nice,” Stan wrote. Stan holds high hopes that the Australian Deaf Sports being hosted in Geelong starting this weekend will highlight the achievements of people with hearing impairment. He is particularly keen to reach hearing impaired people living in rural and remote communities. “We hope it will be a great success but we also hope isolated people in the bush will join us,” Stan wrote. Stan wrote that more hearing impaired people would be connected through the telephone and video program Skype. “We hope to teach them how to use Skype on their computer to help them in their daily lives, like doctors visits,” he wrote. Get in touch with the club be emailing Stan at cats10@ncable.net.au or contact secretary Val Claxton on 5221 9803.

THE STATE Government’s renewal of Alcoa’s Anglesea coalmine lease for another 50 years is deplorable. For 50 years Alcoa has diverted the lower Anglesea River from its original course – a biodiversity-rich braided river system – into a drain that now flows through the Alcoa Power Station grounds. The State Government and former Surfcoast Mayor Dean Webster seem to think that the report by Professor Maher has completely cleared Alcoa of having any impact on the biodiversity of the Anglesea River and the Anglesea valley. The simple fact is that if you dam a river, change its course into a narrow channel and start a massive open cut mine into a substrate millions of years old, you are going to destroy an entire lower river ecosystem. The so-called natural fish kills, while maybe not caused directly by Alcoa emissions, are the result of human disturbance of naturally-occurring acid sulphate soils and soils containing metals and other containments that would otherwise be protected from erosion by dense vegetation cover. This State Government will go down in history as the destroyers of the lower Anglesea valley. Stephen Chenery Anglesea

Stunned by cruelty

1018257-MD2-12

LIKE many Australians I was unaware of the cruel treatment of animals killed for the food chain until Animals Australia brought this issue to my attention. The cruel practice of cutting an animal’s throat without pre-stunning – because this practice could produce a drop of blood causing the animal to be non halal or non kosher – is considered justification for cruelty. Are Australian animals protected? Many are not. Just because this way of slaughtering an animal has been happening for hundreds of years is not a valid reason for it to continue. In The Age newspaper in September 2011 a news item entitled ‘Tracking urged for live exports’ referred to a letter from Princess Alia of Jordan written to Labor MPs who want stunning mandated. The letter calls for the practice to be imposed as a condition of sale and says it fits with Islamic teaching to prevent cruelty to animals. She notes that both of Jordan’s government abattoirs use pre-slaughter stunning for cattle and sheep and says this has been deemed acceptable by Islamic authorities in her country.

DO IT YOURSELF! Hundreds of different tools for hire to Make your job EASY!

I sincerely hope that this ritual slaughter of animals is stopped because it is cruel, selfish and unnecessary. Suzanne Roberts Whittington

Can’t eat coal CLIVE Palmer’s $8.8 billion China First coal project will “take 55,000 ha out of agricultural production” according to the Weekly Times in December. That’s 136,138.614 acres. Queensland premier Anna Bligh describes this as a “big leap forward”. Prime farmland at Bacchus Marsh is to be forcibly taken from Australians to fill ships with brown coal. The Ballieu government supports the development of new brown coal industries and just dithers in the background seemingly directionless and unable to come to any decision or give any leadership. Farmland does not need to be sacrificed in the national interest as 80 percent of mined coal is shipped overseas. Mining projects should be banned immediately on food producing farmland where the minerals are exported. Our leaders are hurting future generations of Australians by sacrificing food producing farmland to turn Australia into a coal quarry for the world. Prime Minister Julia Gillard believes that coal burning is bad for the planet and future generations and is set to waste millions of taxpayer dollars on useless wind farms. She should immediately ban all coal mining on farmland. Our farmland is our future. Kevin Guinane Gheringhap

Barren debate 1 ALAN Barron made a wonderful point (Independent January 6) when he declared: “If a Martian came down to earth and was observing the climate debate he would rightly conclude that western governments are completely nuts”. Our governments are nuts to sit on their hands and do so little to combat climate change. If the alien arrived in Geelong, he would think that Mr Barron is the ringleader of this madness. His unsupported claims of fudged figures and conned governments would be laughable but unfortunately they are damaging. Contrary to his claim, 1934 was not the hottest year on record. Closer inspection reveals that it was only the hottest year on record in the United States. Worldwide, the hottest year on record was 2005, followed by 1998. The remainder of Mr Barron’s claims are also based on data of US temperatures.

The important point is whether there is a longterm warming trend. On that note, I challenge Mr Barron to prove that the world is not warming. There are some rules to this challenge, but they are very reasonable: First, he must take into account total heat content of the earth, not just variable temperatures. Second, any proofs based on air temperatures must be based on a long term trend and not comparison of selected years. Third, any trends must take into account variables such as the La Nina affect which has caused reduction in air temperatures in recent years. Finally, this is an extremely serious and urgent issue and when letters with clear errors are printed it can do significant damage. Can I please urge the Independent to check closely any factual claims made in letters? Gavin Brown East Geelong

Barren debate 2 I CAN barely tolerate the lengths that some climate change sceptics, such as Alan Barron, will go to. Not only is his interpretation of the data open to considerable debate, but he has misrepresented the message coming from a reputable scientific organisation, NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, to promote his dangerously misleading ideas. A visit to the website of this organisation will quickly assure the reader that they firmly back the science of manmade climate change. A research article from the website suggests that we must keep global warming to below two degrees. The article directly cites man made production of carbon dioxide as the primary cause of the rising global temperature. People are welcome to have their own ideas, but don’t try to trick people into thinking that an organisation such as the Goddard institute has ‘changed its mind’ about climate change. As a science teacher, I have been aware of and teaching the science of global warning since the 1980s. It is real and it is happening. Don’t we owe it to future generations to listen to what science is really telling us and take action? Those of us who care about the planet are able to look further ahead than a term of government.

But despite the ups and downs, Gardiner said the 28 Days fire was “still burning”. “It’s always a really awesome feeling when you get into the studio belting out new tunes, it really does get you fired up again and get all the creative juices flowing, “he said. “Six years ago this was a full time job for us; we all have jobs now, so very lucky to have the best hobby in the world.” Guttermouth and 28 Days will be at Geelong’s National Hotel on January 18.

BY ERIN PEARSON AFTER six years of silence, Melbourne’s 28 Days will give Geelong a sneak peak of new material in one of only three performances Australia-wide, according to bassist Damian Gardiner. The songs, planned for release mid-2012, will be the first to air since their 2006 EP Bring ’Em Back. Gardiner said after reinvigorating the band last year they’d found their “mojo” once more. He said 28 Days would kick-off its tour supporting US punk rock group Guttermouth in Geelong. “We want to do another album while we’ve still got it in us,” he said. “We’re lucky we’ve got very loyal fans that know what they like so we don’t need to revive our image. “We’re realists, we know we’re not going to

Teesdale bluegrass wilight at Turtle Bend will host Grammy Award winning musician Peter Rowan and his internationally acclaimed Bluegrass band on March 24, according to promoters.

Ben LeFeure serves up coffee at the new Bridge Room Express.

Bridge to quick coffee n the bridge above Yarra St in Westfield Geelong now lie two venues delivering more than just great views of Corio Bay. Bridge Room Cafe is proud to announce the opening of a new express service right across the walkway. Renowned for its award-winning coffee, Bridge Room Cafe’s superior service is now available for people on the go. Owner Con Petropoulos says the Bridge Room Express kiosk is perfect for anyone in a rush who still wants to enjoy his establish-

ment’s food and beverages without sacrificing the quality. Con says the main difference is that the express service also sells premium Italian gelato. “We’re one of the only places in Geelong where you can get premium Italian gelato. “The six flavours include chocolate, vanilla, rum and raisin and caramel, all just across the walkway. “Bridge Room Express also has its own seating for anyone wishing to stay, so customers can get the best of both worlds.” Both Bridge Room Cafe and

O

Bridge Room Express serve a wonderful selection of cakes, wraps, foccacias and daily specials. The two are open from 8am to 5.30pm Monday to Thursday, to 9pm Friday and until 5pm weekends. “Whether you’re after takeaway, catering, group catch up, lunch, dinner or have the kids in tow, we have something that will suit,” Con says. The cafes are on level one of Westfield Geelong on the Yarra St overpass. Phone the Bridge Room on 5222 8700.

Kids act up after classes creen Actors has been training local actors for the past 15 years. “Our technique is all about being real and complex for the camera,” says studio director John Henderson. “We teach actors of all ages to be open, aware and creative in performances.” This year Screen Actors students have appeared in Neighbours, The Slap, Winners and Losers, Home and Away and brand new shows Conspiracy 365 and Nice. “We’ve just helped one of our teenagers get a scholarship to Stella Adler Acting School in Los Angeles, which is an amazing opportunity,” says Mr Henderson. In addition to these success stories, the Screen Actors program is also great for those looking to boost their confidence or just have a little fun with their drama. Their “Three-Day Workshop” involves warm-up games, improvisation exercises and script work in front of the camera. Actors will be introduced to the Screen Actors technique, based on the Stanislavski system of acting. Screen Actors also run weekly classes during the school term, audition workshops every month with Australia’s leading casting directors, and a huge End of Year Extravaganza performance at its Hollywood Theatre. Challenge yourself today and get involved in screen drama at Screen Actors.

ance Fever is heading into its 18th year of dancing in 2012 and is looking for more kids to join in the fun. With a large number of students to its name, Dance Fever strives to make the experience fun and appealing for children while they learn at the same time. Dance Fever’s friendly teachers are always there to make the experience enjoyable. Classes run for 45 minutes and consist of modern jazz and funk

along with tap dancing. Routines are choreographed to songs familiar to most children so their classes are more enjoyable. Dance Fever keeps its prices low and competitive to ensure the best deal in town. All girls and boys between the ages of three and 18 are welcome to attend at either Lara or Hamlyn Heights. Lara classes run on Mondays and Tuesdays at the Lara Community Centre and Hamlyn Heights classes are

on Wednesdays at the Geelong Ballroom in Hamlyn Park (near Bell Park Sporting Club). The classes do not involve exams or competitions, but just pure fun with a stress-free end of year performance held at Geelong Performing Arts Centre’s “The Playhouse” in the first week of December. Dance Fever can even provide a costume maker to sew costumes for the show if you can’t sew. During 2011, Dance Fever held a

couple of workshops, one of which was held by Rhys Bobridge (as seen in “So You Think You Can Dance” and “The Fairies”). Dance Fever hopes Rhys might return to Geelong in 2012 to show a different style. In the meantime, kids wanting to learn the latest dance moves while having plenty of fun should phone Kim on 5282 8490 or check out the website at dancefever95.com.au.

Body strength: The shape of the new Nissan is more than just visual appeal. The Micra we reviewed was powered by an interesting new three-cylinder engine that displaces 1.2 litres. It’s an ultra-clean unit that has been awarded five stars in the Australian Green Vehicle Guide. Official fuel consumption is 5.9 litres per hundred kilometres on the combined cycle. During our road testing for this review we were typically running in the 5.0 to 6.5 litre range when in the country and/or on motorways. This went up to the seven to eight litre mark around town. The Micra’s three-cylinder engine provides enough performance for the average buyer but you really wouldn’t call it a sporty unit. It has the typical beat, sound and feel that endears triples to motorcycle enthusiasts. Under anything more than normal acceleration it’s quite noisy but remains smooth. When you do rev it hard and into the upper reaches of the tacho it creates quite a racket. Ride comfort is very good for a car as light as this and you will finish long country trips in a Nissan Micra feeling surprisingly relaxed.

EXCELLENT SERVICE HISTORY

APPROVED CARS AL APPROVE ALL L CARS RS

BY ERIC BLAIR issan Micra was sold in Australia during the mid 1990s without much success, chiefly because it was very expensive. Nissan Australia learned from that mistake and when Micra was revived in December 2007 it was offered at what was then a surprisingly low price of just $14,990. Now, with its 2011 upgrade, it’s even better value with a starting price of just $12,990 (plus on-road costs) for a Nissan Micra ST 1.2 with a fivespeed manual gearbox. While some of Nissan’s competitors can offer you a car at this low price, most of them have only three doors, the Nissan Micra has the convenience of four passenger doors plus the hatch. That extra pair of doors in other cars can cost around $2000. The Micra has a shapely body with plenty of style. The cute shape can be ordered in a range of bright colours guaranteed to attract the young and the young at heart. Our orange one certainly got more than its fair share of looks. However, the shape of the new Nissan Micra is about more than simply giving it visual appeal. Considerable engineering went into simplifying the body to make it lighter and stronger, as well as being easy to manufacture. Then there are the strength-providing indentations in the roof; these are not immediately obvious, so you might like to pop down to a Nissan dealer to look at that fascinating shape. Interior space is good for four adults and all four will enjoy good headroom as well as legroom. One reason for the excellent headroom is the aforementioned clever design of the roof that gives strength without adding bulk.

overall width, height and wheelbase as the sedan, but the rear overhang is reduced by 190 mm, as is the overall length, now 4340 mm. Cerato hatchback’s cargo volume of 385 litres is competitive in its class. The sporty front incorporates new radiator and lower air-intake grilles and new-shape fog lamps. New door mirrors have an LED indicator, while the 17-inch alloy wheels of the SLi variant come in a double five-spoke design. Rear lamps are arrayed across the tailgate shut line and a sporty rear diffuser allows the exhaust tailpipe to go on show in the SLi. The four-cylinder Kia Theta II powerplant produces 115 kW and accelerates the hatchback from standstill to 100 km/h in between nine and ten seconds, depending on the transmission. The new six-speed automatic transmission has a gate-type shift pattern and offers the driver fully

Fuel consumption is in the seven to eight litres per hundred kilometres on the open road, rising to eight to ten litres around town. Kia Cerato five-door has the crash safety of front and side airbags for driver and front passenger, plus full side curtain airbags. Anti-skid brakes are augmented by an array of electronic aids and emergency systems. Noise, vibration and harshness have come under attack with additional sound-dampening foam in the A, B and C-pillars and the luggage bay side panels, while the exterior cowling top panel is a heavier gauge steel. This is the start of an ongoing program to make all the company’s vehicles suit Australian driving conditions.

Buyers wanting a fivedoor hatchback were left out in the cold for nearly two years before the five-door finally made it downunder. Based on the big selling Cerato sedan, the hatchback has a new roof, rear side panels, C-pillar, tailgate with rear spoiler, rear bumper and light clusters. Kia Cerato hatch comes in three versions; S, Si and SLi. Sedans and hatches share the same 2.0-litre four-cylinder DOHC engine, mated with either a six-speed manual transmission, or six-speed automatic with paddle-shift Sportsmatic modes. Similar in many ways to its sedan and Koup siblings, the new Cerato five-door has the same

ow-impact collisions typical in shopping centre car parks are annoying to say the least. Add to this the fact that people rarely own up to damaging other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cars. It has been noticed that drivers are often scared to back up any further due to very limited vision. These are the occasions where reverse sensors are very welcome. Bumper Master fits reversing sensors to help customers overcome fears of backing into objects or even pedestrians. Reversing sensors help prevent damage to ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cars as well as the vehicles of neighbours and other motorists. They can also help when backing out of tight garages and past narrow gateposts. Bumper Master can also help owners improve the appearance of bumpers when selling vehicles. Bumpers are the first part of any car to incur damage â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and first impressions are important when trying to sell. All Bumper Master repairs come with a no-questions-asked warranty to give customers peace of mind. Best of all, most bumper repairs are done for less than the cost of insurance excesses. Located behind VicRoads at 3 Dowsett Street, South Geelong, Bumper Master has proven experience in providing an alternative repair service to bumper regions of any car. Owners wanting to improve the resale value of their cars should phone Bumper Master on 5221 0138.

The Independent, Friday January 13, 2012


sport Finals crunch time is nearing GEELONG Cricket Club had a perfect start to the New Year last Saturday, claiming a dominant win over Fitzroy Doncaster. The Cats batted first and the top order did a wonderful job of setting up the innings. Matthew Harrison made a classy 89 from just 108 deliveries, well supported by Hayden Butterworth (46) and skipper Liam Buchanan (25), finishing its 50 overs on 224. To be any chance the bowlers needed to get off to a good start and Marc Carson stood up, claiming the first four wickets to reduce the visitors to 4/66. From there Justin McPhee took up the reins taking three wickets of his own in an economical spell. Fitzroy Doncaster was dismissed for 160, sending Geelong to fifth place on the table following a run of four victories. The Cats will relish the opportunity to take on the formidable second placed Melbourne tomorrow. In division one, Lara faces the ultimate test taking on top placed Grovedale at Burdoo Reserve. When the Cats lost Chris Bambury over the winter, many thought their chances of remaining in the top six may have gone with him. But premiership hero Nathan Yates returned to the club as skip-

Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE per and has led his side magnificently, culminating in a five wicket haul in the last game. With class performers such as Andrew and Danny Hughes in the side, complemented by exciting youngster Matthew Richmond, there is no reason Lara can’t compete with the top sides. Leopold v ST JOSEPHS, GEELONG WEST v Manifold Heights, GROVEDALE v Lara, EAST BELMONT v Newtown & Chilwell, SOUTH BARWON v Bell Post Hill, NORTH GEELONG v Highton. In what could be a seasondefining round in division two, there may be just seven teams left in the premiership race next Saturday night. Marshall, St Peters and Torquay sit together at the foot of the ladder with just two wins and a draw each. In a twist of the draw, they

take on the top three sides in Geelong City, Murgheboluc and St Albans Breakwater. Every one of the remaining results could have huge ramifications on the end of season ladder and will be eagerly awaited. MURGHEBOLUC v St Peters, ST ALBANS BREAKWATER v Torquay, GUILD ST MARYS v Bell Park, GEELONG CITY v Marshall, Newcomb & District v THOMSON, WAURN PONDS v Alexander Thomson. Meredith takes on Corio in what appears to be the most crucial clash in division three. While Meredith have a host of star players in their line up, it has struggled to have an impact in the past two seasons and a loss would virtually end its hopes of premiership glory. The club sits in eighth place with just three wins to its name, only one more than fellow struggler Corio. While Meredith should have enough talent to win, it will need to be at its best to do so. Bannockburn v TEESDALE, WINCHELSEA v Inverleigh, Shelford v LETHBRIDGE, North Shore v LITTLE RIVER, Corio Bay v MODEWARRE, MEREDITH v Corio.

Angler Eli boats a bay snapper On the bite BRIAN LONG THE PRESSURE was on when I was asked to take renowned American angler Eli Daley out on the bay this week. Only a few hours were allocated on his whirlwind Aussie tour to catch a snapper on soft plastics. Despite the atrocious conditions we hit the water before daylight and it didn’t take long before Eli boated the first fish, a reasonable specimen at 35cms. A few lost fish later all went quiet and things were not looking good, especially with the weather still turning. But with the skill and passion he is known for, Eli soon had line screaming from his reel and boated a snapper that will be the envy of all his mates back home in Utah. The trying conditions kept many anglers at home but those prepared to brave the elements were rewarded with some outstanding captures. Terry Moore also found snapper in Corio Bay as plastics accounted for plenty of fish up to 50cms in length. The land-based snapper angler could try to work the Geelong waterfront between Cunningham Pier and the Royal Geelong

Bay Pinky: American angler Eli Daley with his snapper. Yacht Club. Expect to land a few flathead and salmon from the same location. Seeking some protection from the winds close to Bird Rock was Paul Jamison, producing a fantastic bag of whiting and garfish, all taken late in the afternoon on pippies and mussel. Squid continue to be found right along the peninsula, generally best in just 2.5 metres of water on small jigs. Flathead numbers are good in 10 to 12 metre depth, drifting with either bait or soft plastics. Joel Harding tried something a little different; trolling deep diving Sebile minnow lures off Clifton Springs he landed 16 flathead – one topping 2kg – and two similarly sized snapper. Gummy shark of all sizes have been reported of late. There were a couple of stand-out captures, with 13-year-old Mitchell Walker boating a ripper of over 15kg while aboard Queenscliff

Fishing Charters. Salmon are holding in big numbers in and around the Rip area. Boaties are finding trolled white ocky lures best but from shore, casting small metal baitfish profile lures from either the Queenscliff pier or just below Cottage by the Sea of an evening should give you some fun. The Barwon River produced plenty of small to medium size redfin, either on lure or live minnow. Deep Lake saw Henry Johnson catch his bag limit of trout this week, casting atomic shads along the shore margins his best fish a rainbow of 1.5kg. Weather permitting, this weekend Queenscliff will be the place late in the afternoon as the salmon should be readily available. Send reports and photos to info@raylongtackle.com.au or visit Brian at Ray Long’s Fishing World, 105 Shannon Ave Manifold Heights.
