Superkid Dylan back in training for waterfront triathlon By MICHELLE HERBISON DYLAN Newman competed in his first triathlon only last year but the Newcomb 10-year-old is already setting his sights on Ironman Triathlons. He is excited to be gearing up for his second Geelong Independent SuperKidz Triathlon as part of next month’s Geelong Multisport Festival. The determined youngster was inspired to try the sport after watching his cousin, uncle and a friend compete. Dylan said his training schedule involved three weekly sessions either swimming, running or cycling. “Mum and I go to Kardinia Pool every Wednesday. I’ll also run one week then bike the next week,” he said. The cycling leg is Dylan’s favourite because it was “a lot more fun” than swimming or running, he said. Dylan pushed himself to the limit at last year’s event but never felt like giving up. “I was exhausted!” he said. “I’m going to do it again just for the fun of it.” Dylan recommended that children aged seven to 13 try the SuperKidz triathlon on Saturday, February 9. “Do it and have fun and train hard. It’s worth it.” The multisport festival from February 8 to 10 also includes a range of events for all ages and abilities. Entries are open online at geelongmultisport.com.au, by phoning 8698 2000 or emailing multisport@ usmevents.com.au.

New cuts switch off GPs’ specialist links GEELONG has been slapped with another health funding blow, this time to Medicare rebates for a telehealth program. The program enables doctors to access specialists in major metropolitan hospitals from their GP rooms via the internet. But $134 million of Federal Government budget cuts last year changed Geelong’s classification to a major city from January 1, eliminating expected regional rebates over four years.

HIRE

Barwon Medicare Local chief Jason Trethowan said the cuts ruled Geelong patients out of the telehealth program. Local GPs would now miss out on incentives of up to $6000 to institute the telehealth program into their practices, he said. “Geelong patients will also miss out on the benefits of specialist consultations without the stress of long trips to Melbourne. “With broadband speed improving over the coming years, telehealth was going to show-

case greater efficiencies and improved access for patients to medical specialist services. “Plans to develop systems for children to access medical specialists from their GP rooms to Royal Children’s Hospital will now be revisited.” Mr Trethowan said funding for GP telehealth services to Melbourne’s outer-metropolitan area was also cut, eliminating telehealth consultations between Geelong GPs and Melbourne specialists. During the first 12 months

of the telehealth initiative more than a third of local GPs and specialists conducted a clinical video consultation, he said. The GPs linked to Geelongbased specialists and with Melbourne-based specialists and Royal Children’s Hospital. The program cut hit Geelong as it waited for major internet improvements from the arrival of National Broadband Network over the next three ears. “This is a hit on innovation,” Mr Trethowan said. “We’re talking about the

Warralily’s display village is filling with stylish new homes and captivating public art and infrastructure.

Display village comes to life THE start of the calendar year brings many new year’s resolutions as people begin planning for the 12 months’ ahead and, most importantly, start setting goals, including building their dream home. Anyone who takes a drive along Barwon Heads Rd will be spoilt for choice when it comes to builders and home ideas, with Geelong’s biggest display village located at Warralily. Warralily general manager of development Mark Whinfield says the display village is now the largest in the region, housing the latest and most-innovative designs from Victoria’s leading builders. “It’s your one-stop-shop for building ideas and inspiration,” Mr Whinfield says. “Thirty homes are open and further homes will open in coming weeks, so it’s sure to get you excited about the idea of what your new home will look like. “There really is nothing like walking through a display home and picking out the aspects you will replicate in your own home. It gives the consumer the ultimate power and ensures they get exactly what they dream.” The village will have on completion more than 40 display homes from local and metropolitan builders including Boutique, Homebuyers Centre, Carlisle, Cavalier, Dennis Family, Hamlan Homes, Geelong Homes, Hotondo, JG King, Long Island, Metricon, Palladium, Porter Davis, Sherridon, Simonds, Eight Homes, Watersun, Welcon, ARB, Burbank, Urban Edge and Davis Sanders. The display village sits within the initial stages of Warralily where the first landscaping, public art installations, pathways, playground and park areas are now complete. Warralily’s sales and marketing manager Sally Steinkrug says the Warralily landscape has significantly transformed over the last few months with an exciting sense of a new and growing community. “We’ve now released over 329 titles and have more than 75 families calling Warralily home,” she said. “It’s quickly moving from a construction site to one of the region’s most-sought-after communities. We have another 35 homes under construction due to be completed in the coming weeks. “We feel that Warralily is taking great steps in cementing itself as the place to live.” Warralily encourages anyone spending time wandering through the display homes to pop into the new estate’s sales and information centre for a coffee and a chat in the WLounge. Prospective buyers can follow Warralily on Facebook to keep updated on developments at facebook. com/warralily.

Visitors are invited to drop by the display village’s information centre for a cuppa and a chat in the W Lounge.

health system of the future and we’ve lost a bit of traction. The biggest hit is to local paediatricians to consult with the children’s hospital. “It’s not always easy to get doctors to do something different and we’ve spent a lot of time working with specialist clinics and practices to get it up and running. Mr Trethowan hoped the scheme would be restored. “We’ll keep at it and build up the evidence around the connections and its benefits.”

School supplies stores around the region said they were experiencing their busiest times this week as the bonus landed in family bank accounts. The bonus was $410 for each primary school child and $820 for secondary students. Families Minister Jenny Macklin said Australia was feeling the benefits of the first wave of payments. The bonus is paid in two instalments in January and July, while families who claim their Family Tax Benefit at the end of the financial year will receive payment then.

A Clifton Springs man requested Brazilian waxing and raunchy outfits for a fictitious 13-yearold in phone calls his lawyer described as “creepy and salacious”. Troy Bardelmeyer, 35, of Central Ave, pleaded guilty in Geelong Magistrates’ Court to 17 charges of using a carriage service to offend. Police Prosecutor Leading Senior Constable Jacki Davis read a summary of concerning phone calls Bardelmeyer made to numerous Geelong businesses between August 2010 and April 2011. Bardelmeyer made numerous phone calls to beauty salons in Drysdale, East Geelong, Belmont, Hamlyn Heights, Manifold Heights, Corio, Geelong West

and Ocean Grove requesting a Brazilian wax for his “13-yearold daughter”. “He told staff he normally shaved his 13-year-old daughter’s pubic hair but wanted to book her in for a Brazilian wax. He wanted to stand in the room and watch,” Snr Const Davis said. Various staff told police Bardelmeyer made sexually explicit comments during the calls. Bardelmeyer also made numerous calls to clothing, lingerie and sex shops at Torquay, Geelong, Ocean Grove, Corio and North Geelong enquiring about sexually suggestive clothing for a “13-year-old employee” or “girlfriend”. “He said he was hiring a 13-year-old employee who was

well-endowed and he wanted some short shorts and crop tops to show off her assets,” Snr Const Davis said. The court heard Bardelmeyer held relevant prior convictions but police found no evidence of “further offending”. Bardelmeyer’s defence told the court his client’s behaviour was “appalling”. “At the very least it is creepy and salacious and he concedes that’s the situation.” Magistrate Ron Saines said a prison sentence was inappropriate because Bardelmeyer’s offences appeared to relate only “to matters of personal fantasy”. “The recipients of the phone calls would have felt revolted in many ways.”

Reveal Alcoa’s ‘secret’ tax deal, says Kennett By NOEL MURPHY A SECRET energy deal between Alcoa and Federal Government should be revealed to the public, says former premier Jeff Kennett. He told the Independent that details of the subsidies Alcoa received in compensation for the Gillard Government’s carbon tax should be available to the public. The former self-appointed Minister for Geelong, a harsh critic of 30-year electricity subsidies struck by Alcoa with Labor’s Cain Government in the mid-1980s, said the excuse of commercial confidentiality for withholding the information from

the public was unjustifiable. “I can’t think of any commercial reason why the amount of those subsidies shouldn’t be made available,” Mr Kennett said. “I do appreciate the need, under certain circumstances, for confidentiality about government and industry contracts - I’m not opposed in principle - but the difference here is we now have a tax imposed. “Where that leads to a rebate or commercial arrangements between a government and commercial operators, as opposed to commercial decisions a government makes, for instance, to sell power or, to be current, decide to buy a grand prix, I think those subsi-

dies should be made available.’’ Alcoa won a $42 million bailout in June to keep its Point Henry smelter operating and to maintain the jobs of 600 workers for the next two years. But Mr Kennett criticised the secret deal to compensate State Government via Alcoa for the growing cost of its ongoing subsidies under the carbon tax, with the company retaining a portion of the compensation. A lack of obvious competition for Alcoa meant the deal did not have to be kept secret. Alcoa spokeswoman Nichola Holgate insisted the arrangement was strictly confidential.

“It’s not unusual for commercial arrangements, including between governments and private organisations, to be bound by confidentiality agreements,” she said. “That is the case in this instance. We are unable to comment beyond this.” Federal Member for Corio Richard Marles said the deal had nothing to do with the carbon tax. “I respect Jeff Kennett, notwithstanding the fact he’s president of Hawthorn, but he’s going off halfcocked,” Mr Marles said. “He should get around the facts before shooting his mouth off.”

Local focus feeds organic growth of produce market

In brief Bail refused A Geelong magistrate has refused bail to a man accused of burglary and assault because of his “established pattern of non-compliance” with previous court orders. Police arrested Leigh Fitton, of Smith St, Grovedale, on January 11, alleging he stole $10,750 worth of jewellery from two Belmont houses and assaulted a resident.

Imported tilers UNIONS have slammed German supermarket chain ALDI for using tilers from its homeland to work on an expansion of the company’s Waurn Ponds store. Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union organiser Brendan Murphy said Geelong had ample skilled workers available to do the job.

Ram raiders POLICE are appealing for information about burglars who drove a car into a liquor outlet and a licensed premises in Geelong West’s Pakington St about 2am Wednesday. Investigators believed a silver Holden Commodore was driven through the windows of a liquor outlet where offenders stole alcohol efore committing a similar offence at a nearby licensed premises.

Film festival

A SUSTAINABLE and local focus has grown an Ocean Grove market fourfold in its first year of operation, according to organisers. Bellarine Community Farmers’ Market celebrated its first year of successful operation at Ocean Grove Park last week. Founder and organiser Sally Waites said the market brought together her passions of environment, food, community, sustainability, family and friends. “The locals have been really behind it because we’ve wanted something like this for ages,” she said. Ms Waites believed that Bellarine Community Farmers’ Market differed from many other markets in the region because it focused on promoting local produce on a smaller scale rather than expanding into art and crafts. “It’s about having a difference with each stall. We’ve got a few fruit and vegetable stalls but everyone else has their own little niche. “We’ve got olive oil, eggs, honey, cheese, bread, meats, baked savoury and sweet goods, popcorn, coffee, flowers, plants, herbs and vegetable seedlings.” Ms Waites also runs a shared community stall at the market that has allowed smaller growers to sell their produce.

ORGANISERS hope to screen 35 feature films in a new festival at Lorne. They said the inaugural Lorne Film would feature Australian and international movies to give the town a “real buzz” from November 15 to 17.

Link warning V/LINE has warned State Government its Regional Rail Link between Geelong and Melbourne will be “full the day it opens”, according to state Greens MP Greg Barber. He said a “secret” V/Line strategic plan had advised the Government to carry out “basic infrastructure improvements”.

“Volunteer helpers are on the shared staff and many people who have produce will stay and help out then what they make on the stall they

take home.” Ms Waites said. Bellarine Community Farmers’ Market also supported local charities and community initiatives.

By JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG has finished fifth last in a ranking of preferred places to live after hosting a liveable cities conference last year. Geelong was ranked 25th out of Australia’s top 30 cities. Launceston topped the list, according to the Suncorp Bank Family Friendly Index. The region performed well in only one category – perception of health – and was middle of the table in crime and community volunteering. Geelong rated lowly for education, income, child care, unemployment and “connectivity” to the internet. Suncorp Bank index compared factors such as unemployment, crime rates, health services, schools, child care, volunteering, house prices and disposable income in

Australia’s 30 most populous cities to produce the index. Geelong respondents perceived themselves to be in excellent or very good health, giving their city its highest ranking of three in the index. But Geelong had the 27th most crowded schools, with a median of 1007 children at each school, and the 27th lowest median disposable weekly income at $610. The region also fared poorly in child care, with the 26th most crowded centres at 155 children per facility. Geelong had the 12th highest crime rate at 7021 incidents per 100,000 people, the 19th highest number of GP visits per person at 5.1, the 20th worst unemployment at six per cent and the 21st worst internet access, with only 65 per cent having broadband at home.

Geelong Chamber of Commerce executive officer Bernadette Uzelac said the result left open questions of the index’s data and methodology. “I would have thought that Geelong ranked higher as a family-friendly city, with our excellent education facilities, affordable housing and access to the natural environment on our doorstep,” she said. “The benefits of city of our size mean we have access to entertainment, sporting, cultural and leisure activities in abundance. “I’m sure the other cities in the survey would say similar things but we have to remember that the region is growing. Our growing population also means there is some pressure on services, so in some ways that indicates we are catching up and there is a lot of planning going on to enable us to cope.”

Baby Texan fits Krieg family tradition to a T By NOEL MURPHY MEET little Texan Gamble, member of an illustrious T-Team – and perhaps better named TGK-17/4. Young Texan, delivered by caesarean section to mum Shell and Tim Krieg at Geelong’s St John of God Hospital this week, is a miracle baby. Shell thought that after three kids by previous caesars, four miscarriages, three operations and two rounds of fertility treatment she was out of the motherhood stakes. Conceiving and producing young Tex-

an was the very gamble he was named for – but he’s proved a winner for the Kriegs. He’s also proved an alphabetical anomaly: one of five males in the family whose first name starts with T. All share a G in their second name as well. There’s Tim Gordon, Tyron Gordon, Tayten George and Tazman Giles – and now Texan Gamble Krieg. Hence the TGK. “The T thing just kind of happened. We wanted names that were a bit different,’’ Shell explained. “The Gs are a family thing – Tim’s

dad, my dad, ma and pa’s surname. “Texan struggled a bit. We didn’t think he was going to happen. “We’re so blessed, so lucky. I didn’t know whether I could have any more.’’ With the guidance of obstetrician Dr Brian McCully and staff, however, the T-Team is now complete. “This is it,” 35-year-old Shell said. So why TGK-17/4? That’s one more little oddity. All four of the young Krieg boys were born on the 17th day of their respective birth months. Go figure.

Festival future hinges on pier By MICHELLE HERBISON GEELONG’S Festival of Sails remains “not quite viable” without a major commercial sponsor, according to organisers. Royal Geelong Yacht Club general manager Phil Clohesy said a three-year State Government and City of Greater Geelong funding agreement would keep the event afloat but it required more support. “It’s still tight out there in the corporate market,” Mr Clohesy said. The Independent reported in late 2011 that former naming rights sponsor, car manufacturer Audi, declined to support the event again in 2012. Audi sponsored the event in 2011 after taking over from international finance company Skandia. Mr Clohesy said this weekend’s festival had attracted more small and medium sponsors than

He said a proposed Yarra St Pier reconstruction including more floating marina infrastructure would reduce festival costs and allow the event’s growth.

“We see that as a mission critical in terms of the ongoing development of the event. The cost of temporary infrastructure is one of our biggest Achilles’ heels.” According to regional councils alliance group G21, Royal Geelong Yacht Club has committed $2.5 million and council $5 million to the Yarra St Pier plans but the project still needs a further $2.57 million from State Government. Mr Clohesy said a lack of funding had forced festival organisers to cut costs but changes would be “not obvious to the public”. “As an example we normally have a large marquee in the yacht club precinct, which we’ve done away with.” Festival of Sails is Victoria’s oldest ongoing sport event, with organisers expected it to attract 100,000 people to Geelong’s waterfront over four days fom this Friday to Monday.

’60s teenage stabbing figure dead By NOEL MURPHY THE MAN behind a killing that shook Geelong in the mid-1960s has died. Philip George Batty’s brutal, mysterious crime left Geelong parents fearing for their children and kids cowering in their beds at night. Russell Rushton, 14, of Herne Hill, was last seen alive on May 13, 1966 when he left home after school to watch trains near Geelong Cement at Fyansford. Three schoolgirls found his body 10 days later near the Moorabool River. Russell Rushton had been

stabbed more than 20 times in a crime Chief Justice Sir Henry Winnecke described as “almost inexplicable”. Batty, then a 14-year-old of Herne Hill, pleaded guilty to manslaughter following an argument that, the Criminal Court heard, started over Batty being allowed to drive “Puffing Billy steam engine trains” trains at the cement quarry. Batty’s bail was earlier revoked after the court heard the sight of him still at large was distressing the victim’s motherge. The court heard other parents feared for the children and that some children were scared to go

to bed, fearing the then-alleged killer might still be on the loose. “The first stab could well have been done in an act of selfdefence. Nevertheless, there are some 21 to 22 other stab wounds inflicted with such brutality and uncontrolled violence that we must look to the inner recesses of the mind to search for an explanation,” Batty’s lawyer told the court. Batty was sentenced to 10 years jail, with a minimum of six. He died last week aged 60. His family declined to comment.

LUCKY ESCAPE: Rescuers and emergency crews with two of the accident victims at Cunningham Pier on Tuesday.

Pictures: GREG WANE

TWO Royal Geelong Yacht Club staff members rescued a pilot and two passengers from a joy-flight seaplane after it crashed and flipped into Corio Bay on Tuesday. Yacht club general manager Phil Clohesy said it was “fortunate” marina supervisor Paul Walters and Matt Ash were “so close” when they heard the Bay City Seaplane pilot’s mayday call. “Their response was very immediate as they were only a few hundred metres away working on the Festival of Sails preparations,” he said. “When they got there the pilot had already helped the two passengers involved in the crash to get on top the plane’s floating pontoons.” Mr Clohesy said the rescuers struggled to lift the passengers and pilot from the plane’s pontoons and into a boat. “The pilot was very good and supportive in helping the passengers.” Mr Clohesy said festival organisers had “ironically” considered, during a briefing session just hours before the accident, a mock rescue scenario involving a downed plane. “We wrote it as highly unlikely and then four hours later it happened.”

Barwon Health said the pilot and his female passenger were discharged from Geelong Hospital but a male passenger remained in a stable condition on Wednesday when the Independent went to press. Bay City Seaplanes’ chief pilot Greg Bolton declined to comment while the crash was the “subject of investigation”. Australian Transport Safety Bureau confirmed it was investigating. Spokesperson Daniel O’Malley said bureau investigators would conduct interviews and complete “background research” to understand what happened. Mr O’Malley expected the investigation could take up to a year but “clear information” from the people involved incident could lessen the time. American daredevil Bam Margera had planned a stunt involving the seaplane the day it crashed. Bay City Seaplanes personnel delayed the stunt minutes before, telling the Jackass star they were concerned about wind. Margera initially believed members of his staff were on board the seaplane when it crashed. He cancelled the stunt afterward. “Well, I’m not getting on that f… ing plane now, that’s for sure,” he said.

Dispute on bill ‘left me like a freak’ By NOEL MURPHY BRENDA Hoad feels like a sideshow “freak” after Barwon Health pulled her off a post-cancer surgery waiting list over a payment standoff. Mrs Hoad, 56, of Hamlyn Heights, said she suffered constant headaches, seeping fluid and blood running over her face as she waited for a third operation to complete reconstruction of her nose. But she and Barwon Health are at loggerheads over payment for previous surgery and an upfront charge for the next round of work on her nose. As a US citizen, Mrs Hoad is ineligible for Medicare. She owes around $6000 for surgery to date and had been told to pay $3500 in advance for her next operation or it won’t go ahead. In the meantime, she said, the top of her head was numb, her glasses won’t sit on her nose and the way she held her head to see was affecting her neck and shoulders. Initial surgery had left a gaping skin flap across the middle of her face. Mrs Hoad said she felt “like a freak from a sideshow’’. “I don’t like to go out anywhere if I don’t have to because it’s hard to drive. I still have seeping fluid and

sometimes blood running into my eyes and down my face.” Mrs Hoad wanted Barwon Health to extend a payment plan for the further operation she needed. “I’ve screamed and hollered ‘Are you going to let me run around like a freak for the rest of my life?’,” she said. Barwon Health said Mrs Hoad had rejected numerous approaches by phone, mail and email to discuss a payment plan. “Mrs Hoad has refused our attempts to accommodate her situation,” a spokesperson said. “While we sympathise with Mrs Hoad, we have provided her with payment options and payment extensions which she has not taken up. “This leaves us with no choice but to cancel her surgery. All surgery needed to attend to her acute medical needs has been completed and the remaining surgery is aesthetic.” Barwon Health said it provided care to patients with Medicare or private health coverage and to others willing to pay up front. “Given current constraints on funding, Barwon Health is not in a position to divert care for eligible patients.”

This is a fantastic opportunity to connect with a range of aerospace related organisations. If your business is keen to participate please send us a brief EOI including a description of your business, your specific interest in participating and your contact details.

By MICHELLE HERBISON WORKING “as little as possible” since relocating to Australia as a retiree could be the key to Franciska Lobojko reaching the age of 103 years. Daughter Lili Culjkovic said the Multicultural Aged Care resident celebrated her 103rd birthday last Friday in the comfort of the residence she calls “a very nice hotel”. “I brought her flowers and the doughnuts with smilies that she loves then I said ‘We’re going out for lunch’ and she said ‘No way, today’s fish day and I love my fish’.” Ms Culjkovic said her mother was capable of walking alone and in “excellent health” despite the occasional forgetful moment. Mrs Lobojko had a “very healthy and happy childhood” in Bosnia-Herzegovina as one of 11 children.

She later moved to Croatia, worked as a seamstress, married and raised Lili, her only child. At 60 she was divorced from Ms Culjkovic’s father and looking for something new. “She decided to go to Australia to visit her brother and met his best friend, got married to him and never came back to Croatia,” Ms Culjkovic said. Mrs Lobojko has now lived in Geelong for 43 years despite speaking “very little” English. “She loves it here and always says ‘This is a wonderful country’,” Ms Culjkovic said. Her mother loved flora and fauna, gardening, cooking, reading the newspaper and listening to the radio. “Probably the only way to become 103 is to just enjoy yourself and don’t work too much!” Ms Culjkovic said.

Hospital’s cuts ‘worry ambos’ STOCKTAKE X TENDED By NOEL MUPHY

PARAMEDICS have voiced “serious concern” about federal funding cuts forcing 24 bed closures at Geelong Hospital. Ambulance Victoria’s regional manager for Barwon South West, Mick Cameron, said the service would be monitoring the impact of the closures “very closely”. “Any delays, including bed closures, which affect our capacity to serve the community are a serious concern,” he said. Mr Cameron warned that limiting access to hospital beds could affect patient flow through emergency departments. “Time taken to transfer patients to beds at hospitals can impact on our ability to leave the hospital and therefore respond to triple zero calls,” he said. Paramedics’ concerns echoed the fears of Ambulance Victoria for services state-wide. The cuts

have also forced the closure of Colac Hospital’s emergency department at night. Geelong Mayor Keith Fagg issued a plea in last week’s Independent for warring MPs to work together to solve the funding crisis. Under Federal Government cuts, Barwon Health has lost $4.9 million from its current budget. The region’s two federal Labor MPs have insisted State Liberal government is to blame, claiming it cut $616 million from health funding over two years. Local state Liberals say all health agencies agree with them that federal Labor is responsible. The MPs said they were happy to meet, as suggested by Cr Fagg, but none were prepared to concede blame or cross party lines to argue Geelong’s case. With 24 beds to close, elective surgery waiting times to blow out 100 per cent, a recruitment freeze and possible job losses at

E

Geelong Hospital, the paramedic threat raises the political ante even further. But ambulance officers insisted they would reduce the fallout as much as possible. “We’re aware that these closures and the closures at other hospitals may impact their ability to move patients through quickly,” Mr Cameron said. “We have recently increased our capability to refer patients who don’t require an ambulance to alternative community health services and this will assist in reducing unnecessary transports to emergency departments. “Whenever we become aware of lengthening transfer times we’re in contact with Barwon Health to quickly find a solution. When required, ambulance managers will attend the hospital and work with hospital staff to make paramedics available for other triple zero calls as soon as possible.”

Projects limbo in builder flop By JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG builder Macalister Prestige Homes has collapsed, leaving behind several unfinished building projects. The firm’s parent company, Sale-based Macalister Constructions, last week entered voluntary administration owing millions of dollars. Administrator SV Partners conducted a meeting of creditors in Melbourne on Wednesday. The company established its Geelong base in an office in Fyans St, South Geelong, in 2011 but was working on a small number of projects in the region at the time of the collapse. Macalister Prestige Homes was listed among builders slated to provide houses in the new Geelong Golf Links residential estate.

The company had built or planned display homes at Lara, Leopold and Armstrong Creek. The company’s website said the firm had won a combined of 27 Housing Industry Australia and Master Builders awards. “At Macalister Prestige Homes we pride ourself (sic) on producing high quality affordable homes with a personal touch.” The company also had a commercial arm, with Federal Government contracts under the Building the Education Revolution scheme. However, the firm’s registration to accept government contracts was withdrawn in June after it ran into difficulties paying sub-contractors. Gippsland Trades and Labour Council secretary John Parker

said Macalister Constructions had falsely signed statutory declarations saying it had paid contractors when it had not. “Government departments like the Department of Human Services continued to pay Macalister even though they knew contractors had not been paid. “The damage they do to small contractors is outrageous, especially in small towns. The funds are meant to stimulate the economy but instead it ends up with bottom feeders.” Mr Parker called for a full investigation into the failure of Macalister Constructions despite warnings to government. The Macalister collapse follows the failure of Blue Cove Homes and Kala Homes in Geelong last year.

Customers go Wah for a café icon By NOEL MURPHY AS Geelong’s past icons go, it’s up there with Hy-Lite Park, ABC Café, Bright and Hitchcocks and McCann St. But Tien Wah Café, illustrious a position as it holds in Geelong’s social and culinary history, is reluctant to be consigned to a forgotten past. Last weekend saw its celestial presence shining bright in cyberspace as hundreds of Facebook Geelong page followers recounted experiences at the Malop St Chinese and Australian Café. And not surprisingly, really. For behind the Tien Wah’s lacecurtained windows, beneath the menacing dragon over its veranda, the hearts and stomachs and sensibilities of a couple of

y Hur r hance! C Last

generations of Geelong were tugged, sated and churned. The testimonies posted spoke of over-sized chicken rolls, giant hand-cut potato chips, fried rice in brown paper bags, takeaway chow mien in customers’ own pots and pans, gar lee gai, legendary dim sims, sweet and sour in chicken and pork varieties. They also attested to first dates that led to marriage, to chiko rolls claimed as aphrodisiacs, to dim sim-eating records, a Christmas tree that was up all year round, carved boxes, guitarist John Dallimore’s tribute Tien Wah Blues, hangover cure banana fritters and more. The Tien Wah, for 47 years until 2003 a Geelong landmark, was opened by Lee Man Yee after a syndicate behind the Golden Vine Chinese restaurant, then

in Ryrie St, split. He and his wife ran the show until the mid1990s, Mr Lee using an abacus to sort his accounts. “I would go there for Mr Lee’s dim sims or spring rolls three or four times a week. Awesome,” recalled Robert Hovendene on the Facebook page. “I had two dozen shipped to me when I working overseas in the ’80s.” “We have lived all over Australia and no Chinese has ever matched up to Tien Wah,” Melaine Gill said. But David Hayley, with a sense for Geelong icons, might have had the last word on the Tien Wah. “Always there after footy, especially when Ablett senior kicked a bagful at Kardinia Park.”

Asbestos fears for power station site By NOEL MURPHY

BEAUTY AND BRAINS: Dr Bonnie Blossman, left and Deakin’s Dr Cassandra Atherton.

Brains, beauty backfire in reality of TV – local expert By NOEL MURPHY BRAINS and beauty can backfire, especially for anyone looming large in the public eye, according to a Deakin University academic. Dr Cassandra Atherton said a case in point was blonde bombshell Dr Bonnie Blossman, who had faced problems with colleagues, students, fans and cast members as a result of her appearances on US reality TV show Big Rich Texas. Dr Atherton said the woes of the so-called “Hottie Doctor” highlighted the problems female academics face being taken seriously. “Professors who are considered too good looking can be cast by their peers as lightweights,” said Dr Atherton, a professor in literary studies. Dr Blossman’s role on the TV show challenged the stereotype of the “austere, introverted and tweedy professor” but her expertise was rarely put to use and her credentials regularly called into question, Dr Atherton explained.

The “Hottie Doctor” is actually an adjunct professor with a PhD in developmental physiology, a masters in microbiology and a bachelor of science in pre-medicine. But celebrity and beauty was a double-edged sword for her, Dr Atherton said. The combination had created problems with “university colleagues, her students as well as fans of the show and fellow cast members”. “In the majority of articles in the press and in the way she is introduced to new cast members on Big, Rich Texas Dr Blossom’s status as professor is always questioned, based on her appearance.” Dr Atherton said the university was supportive of Dr Blossman’s TV work but female colleagues were less enthusiastic. “Dr Blossman has said ‘The students don’t take me quite as seriously as they did before, so I can’t be my silly self as much anymore. I have to be more serious.”

Wagons reach end of line FREIGHT train carriages emblazoned with graffiti at North Geelong shunting yards will be removed for scrap, according to their owner. The Independent reported last week that dozens of Pacific National’s wagons had been vandalised with spray-can artwork while sitting in the yards since being decommissioned.

A spokesperson for Pacific National said the former fertiliser transport wagons could not be adapted for grain haulage. “The wagons have been decommissioned. They are currently being salvaged for parts and will be removed for scrapping later this year,” the spokesperson said.

ASBESTOS concerns have emerged over a derelict North Geelong power station flagged as a possible marine storage site. The abandoned plant – host to graffiti featuring Nazi slogans, violence and sexual images amid shattered glass and sharp twisted metal – is unsecured and ignored by authorities. The family of a former power station worker, Murray Sunderland, added further question marks over the site this week when they said he died of asbestosis in the 1980s. They believed that up to four other

workers also died of asbestosis after being exposed to fibres while working on pipe systems at the plant. Gordon Sunderland said his brother worked at the plant replacing hot water pipes insulated with a substance he believed to have contained asbestos. “They couldn’t align it directly because my brother was a smoker, so there was no comeback, but a couple of other guys passed away from the same disease, asbestosis,” Mr Sunderland told the Independent. Cousin Geoff Anderson raised concerns the plant might still be riddled with asbestos.

Any potential development would need to be checked carefully for the potentially deadly material, he said. Security fencing around the power station has been torn down and metal security grids around the building cut apart, while unsecured holes inside pose danger for the unwary. The facility operated between 1954 and 1970 as the largest steam power station in provincial Victoria after Yallourn. Geelong councillor Eddy Kontelj recently revealed talks between City Hall and an unnamed party about a dry-storage facility for marine craft.

Home cooked goodness – home delivered FINDING the time to cook a nutritious meal every night can often be challenging. Then you need to have a seemingly endless list of ideas to keep the meals ‘new’ and not ‘boring’. If you are finding it testing to come up with a healthy meal options every night, why not freshen up your ideas in the kitchen by calling on the team at Choice Fresh Meals? For almost two decades, the Company has been keeping people well fed without the hassle of preparation, providing meals in our community to: • Seniors who need our meal service to allow them to remain independent • Busy professional people who don’t have the time to prepare nourishing food • People with an ongoing illness who are unable to cook for themselves. A couple who have taken advantage of the service Choice Fresh Meals offers are Jack and Mavis Kennedy of Leopold. Both 86, the couple decided to try out Choice Fresh Meals after Mavis had heard good reports from friends. “I belong to seniors and we began talking about meals one day and someone

said they were using the company and we decided to give it a try”, Mavis said. “We have the meals three days a week – on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evening – and they deliver them for us on Tuesday.” “The main reason we did it was that if anything happens to me, Jack would struggle to carry on with preparing food. And the same goes for me if something happened to Jack. It’s a nice break from cooking every night and they have a large choice of meals… everyone has something they don’t like, so it is nice to have a good range to choose from.” “They have a Summer menu, Winter menu, Autumn menu, Spring menu and a Christmas menu as well, so it is very easy”. Apart from main evening meals, Jack and Mavis also take advantage of the dessert options three nights a week. “We have tried a few different services, but we are very happy with Choice Fresh Meals,” Mavis said. “It’s conveniently delivered for us on Tuesdays and I look forward to not having to cook for the three nights… it’s a nice break.

Jack and Mavis haven’t looked back since joining Choice Fresh Meals last years.

THE region’s bays and ocean depths are virtually the last mysteries on our planet but John Wilson reckons more people should plumb the unknown. “We know more about outer space than we do about what goes on under the water,” the keen diver said. “More than 70 per cent of Earth’s surface is covered in water but most people have no idea of what happens under the surface.” Mr Wilson runs Bay City Scuba Dive Club and its 45 active members are regular divers, experiencing the hidden wonders of our coastline. “In Victoria 90 per cent of the species and fish you see on a dive are endemic to this area,” he said. “We’re fortunate to have a huge variance of species, including the most spectacular sponge gardens in the world. “The sponge gardens don’t occur anywhere else. They’re unique to our ecosystem because it is where the temperate and cold waters meet. “There is such a diversity of colour and types. You can see them snorkelling but the deeper you go the larger they are. “They tend to like deep, cool water and around the 18 to 20-metre mark they are the size of cars.” Mr Wilson said the hidden wonders of our coast were starting to be recognised nationally and internationally. “It’s been a secret but it’s starting to gain momentum. We have people from all over who want to come here to see the sponges and see the shipwrecks. “We have fantastic shipwrecks – from a dive perspective – within our coastlines. There are 170 known shipwrecks and 80 of them are diveable.” Mr Wilson said he had been diving the area all his life and could still find new underwater sights. His group is one of Geelong’s oldest diver clubs and Victoria’s most active dive group. “We hold dives every weekend, both boat-based and from shore, and we have several arms to our club. There’s an underwater photography section, a section for those who like a bit of spear fishing, while some like free-diving and snorkelling. “It’s all family-friendly - even the kids can go snorkelling. Children can learn to dive from 12 and the oldest I’ve trained was 63.” Mr Wilson suggested anyone interested in taking up diving should learn to snorkel well first. “A good snorkelling background makes it easier because people are already comfortable in water; it makes it more enjoyable. “You can be under the water for up to an hour in this surreal, quiet environment. It’s a great escape from the hustle and bustle – there are certainly no mobile phones down there! “It’s fun, it’s healthy, it gets people active and you can see what’s happening in our environment, you see the rubbish and it makes you think twice about what you’re doing. Mr Wilson said anyone interested in joining the club could email him on info@baycityscuba.com or phone 5248 1400.

Memorial site reserved for open space A LETTER recently published in the Independent expressed concern about the future of Ocean Grove Memorial Recreation Reserve, currently home to Ocean Grove Football and Netball Club and Ocean Grove Cricket Club. The writer, and in fact everyone in Ocean Grove, can be reassured that both their ward councillor and City of Greater Geelong have absolutely no intention of selling the reserve. Council’s Ocean Grove sporting infrastructure plan of 2010 does recommend selling two old netball courts in Draper St once four new courts are completed at Shell Rd but the memorial reserve site across the road will be retained and improved. Council is committed to make the reserve more accessi-

JEANETTE Charles (Letters, January 18) objected to euthanasia, the Greek word for ‘good dying’. One aspect of her letter was common to the views of people opposed to euthanasia. The only euthanasia ever advocated in Australia is voluntary euthanasia but euthanasia opponents invariably avoid using the word voluntary because they don’t believe people whose lives are at issue should have any say in the matter. Ms Charles apparently knew that Susan Potts “only needed tender loving care” to prevent her suicide. Yes, Ms Potts was relatively healthy for her age, but Ms Charles didn’t mention she was 89 and her sister had died a lingering, painful death that Ms Potts didn’t want for herself. At 89 a crippling stroke can instantly take away one’s self-determination. While she still had the capacity to choose and act for herself, she made her decision. In raising the atypical case of a healthy person suiciding, Ms Charles ignored persons suffering incurable and distressing illnesses for which medical alleviation is impossible. Rod McKenzie, whom Ms Charles criticised, was instrumental in bringing about Victoria’s Medical Treatment Act, which sought to give terminally ill people some say in what treatment might legally be refused. Since then Barwon Health, for example, has introduced a program bringing hospital doctors and patients closer together in understanding how a terminally-ill patient’s decisions can best be implemented. Again, this is not euthanasia but Ms Charles might think it is the “slippery slope”. I think it’s a sign of a civilised society. Tim Saclier Leopold

BOB FORSTER (Letters, January 18) accused me of criticising Thomas Watson (Letters, December 7) for denying carbon dioxide (CO2) is a toxin. I most certainly did not. I accused him of making a straw-man argument and Mr Foster inadvertently did the same thing. A straw-man argument is when you argue against a point your opponent never made. That is, you set up a straw man to knock it down very easily. Climate scientists do not claim CO2 is a toxin, so by denying it is a toxin Mr Watson made a strawman argument. As for Alan Barron (Letters, January 18), I did not refer to forecasts of likely extremes in weather events. Yes, there has possibly been some stabilisation of air temperatures over the past 15 years, according to England’s Met Office but depending on when you start or end the chart records might show a slight warming trend. In spite of this, the recent few years were all among the 10 hottest on record and 2012 was the hottest in the US. Atmospheric temperature is the least useful indicator of the long-term warming of Earth. When the land, ocean, ice and atmosphere are all taken together Earth’s total heat content is continually and consistently increasing. This must inevitably lead to higher air temperatures over the long-term. I must finish now as I am starting to feel dizzy. Mr Barron has a better sense of balance than me and is superior at going around in circles. Gavin Brown East Geelong

Maybe it’s the Sun IN REGARD to Mr Brown’s request for truth about climate change (Letters, December 11), I wish to ask him to answer a scientific question.

and will remain so. Council has allocated many millions of dollars to improve sport and recreational facilities in Ocean Grove in recent years. At Shell Road we’ve delivered an aquatic centre, a playground and barbecue area and a skate park. The latest improvements will relocate local cricket, netball and football to bigger and better facilities at Shell Rd where they will join Surfside Waves Soccer Club and Surfside Tennis Club. This will leave the memorial reserve site to continue as public open space, freeing it up for broader community use, just as it should be. Cr Jan Farrell Beangala Ward

First, some statistical facts of Earth’s gravitational values. Within both hemispheres the accepted gravity value at latitude 45 is 9.80665 metres a second, per second. Our Moon always facing Earth’s surface with its oscillating orbital pattern and science says it has a gravitational value of 1.66 metres a second, per second. My question to Mr Brown is: Why are ocean tidal level patterns so different at these two equalised latitude gravitational values, with a 15-metre tidal effect in the Northern Hemisphere but only a two-metre effect in the Southern Hemisphere? I have identified in my 2009 book that a magnetic reaction between the positive magnetic emission field from the Moon’s face and the positive and negative magnetic hemispheres of Earth create these tidal effects, which defies the scientifically accepted explanation that the force of gravity is responsible. As a result of my discovery I can justify that our Sun is changing our seasons on Earth. This explanation has now been supported. A few days ago NASA posted on the internet: “Our Sun changes our climate”. As such, it is possible carbon dioxide might not initiate climate change. So, please, Mr Brown, the science is not settled. Thomas TS Watson Bell Post Hill

Deniers’ Nazi weakness THAT climate change deniers still cling to their ridiculous positions in the face of the hottest days on record, melting permafrost, disappearance of the north pole and Greenland ice and overwhelming evidence from climate scientists that the world is warming dangerously does not bother me so much. The thing that is so shameful is that Michael Spencer (Letters, January 18) had the audacity to connect Gavin Brown’s letter with Nazis! In my experience, when someone resorts to these tactics it is an indicator of the weakness of their argument. Everything climate scientists have predicted in the past 30 years has come to pass. You would not trust a bricklayer to do brain surgery or a surgeon to build a house of bricks. Why, then, would you disbelieve those who are experts in their field and who are warning us we are in for a catastrophic climate crisis that might indeed destroy our civilisation? We need to act now and urge government to be stronger in its resistance of fossil fuel companies. Leigh Adamson Belmont

Assess this! REGARDING the letter headlined ‘They’re baaaack!’ in last week’s Independent, I thank Peter van Elden for giving me a chance to answer. As a sufferer and knowing of many people also suffering from the toxicity of hydrofluorosilicic acid in our tap water, I request that Victorian Health Minister David Davis and Barwon Water’s chief executive officer provide a copy of the risk assessment reports showing us we are not at risk of systemic health problems as a result of fluoridation and that it will not cause dental fluorosis, skeletal fluorosis or any other health problems, as it did with the kangaroos in Portland. With 98 per cent of European countries, Japan, China and India un-fluoridated and America and Canada following The Netherlands’ lead of taking it out of their water, where does it leave us? Prime Minister Julia Gillard should give Australia some answers that make sense on fluoridation, so I request that she also supply any Commonwealth risk assessment on this subject.

Vaudeville smashes beer event THE Vaudeville Smash members have the best job in the world and, according to frontman Marc Lucchesi, it’s not just because they have fun playing catchy retro-pop to boogying audiences. “This has to be one of the only professions on this planet that encourages us to drink while we work,” Lucchesi laughed. “You rock up to a gig and your dressing rooms are always full of booze and any pub we play at the band’s always got a drink.” Lucchesi hopes the trend will hold true during The Vaudeville Smash’s show at Geelong Racecourse for the Great Australian Beer Festival on February 2. The gig will be an exciting show for the band as it gears up to release its debut album the same month. Lucchesi wanted to ensure Geelong beer-loving festivalgoers they will be in for a treat, even if it’s their first time hearing The Vaudeville Smash. “We pride ourselves on our live show and being pretty energetic,” he grinned. The songs we play are pretty catchy with a lot of hooks. “Expect a lot of fun, to get up and dance and be humming our

songs by the time you leave,” he grinned. The Vaudeville Smash is a family affair, with three brothers Marc (vocals, saxophone and flute), Dan (drums and vocals) and Luca (bass and vocals) joining forces with Nic Lam (guitar, soft synth and vocals) and new addition James Bowers (keyboards). Lucchesi said they were “notoriously crap” at describing their style. “We used to call ourselves nouveau yacht rock just for something to say.” Drawing from the groove and melodic elements of ’70s and ’80s influences including Michael Jackson, Elton John, Earth Wind and Fire, Todd Rundgren and Stevie Wonder, retro pop is possibly the best description of The Vaudeville Smash sound. The group is fundraising for a three-week tour of the US and Canada that will include renowned festival and conference South by Southwest in Austin, Texas. Lucchesi realised while speaking to the Independent the need to persuade another band-member to drive the group home after the Geelong gig. “I think it’s my prerogative to try some beers. I do like trying new weird stuff.”

MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL COMEDY FESTIVAL PROUDLY PRESENTS

BALD AMBITION: George Donaldson, centre, with his Celtic Thunder bandmaters.

Hear the Thunder By CHERIE DONNELLAN SIX years ago Scotsman George Donaldson cancelled a family trip to Australia to join a quintet of Celtic performers. A self-taught musician and “bus builder” by trade, Donaldson admitted he never anticipated travelling to Australia or worldwide to sing in sold out venues with Celtic Thunder years later. “I remember being introduced to the other guys and thinking ‘There’s no way I can sing with classically trained boys’,” Donaldson reminisced. “But we sang and I thought ‘The vocals here are amazing’ and I’ve never enjoyed something so much.” Donaldson recalled how producers Sharon Brown and Phil Coulter were seeking

a Braveheart-like “six-foot-two guy from Scotland who could sing”. “I tick most of the boxes,” Donaldson laughed, alluding to his bald head. Donaldson believed the members’ wide age range – from early 20s to mid-40s – was the “perfect blend” that helped earn the group Billboard magazine’s Top World Album Artist recognition in 2009. He dubbed Celtic Thunder’s other soloists and accompanying band as “family” despite having a wife and teenage daughter at home. But being away from his real family reminded him to “put (his) head down and work hard” while on tour. “People think it’s just about flying overseas and singing but it’s hard work and we want to perform well.”

What’s n at o

Donaldson said the group’s previous Australian tour had “inspired” Celtic Thunder to revisit its back catalogue. “On our last tour we’d released our material in the United States that hadn’t been released yet in Australia, so we couldn’t sing everything. “But we sang some of our older songs that we believe had been taken out of our set list too quickly – songs we enjoyed. “This time we’re digging out the greatest hits as well as a lot of our newer stuff from (albums) Voyage and Heritage.” Celtic Thunder plays Geelong Arena on February 10. The Independent is offering readers the chance to win double passes to the concert, with giveaway details at www.facebook. com/GeelongIndependent.

NEXT week Geelong will host its inaugural Great Australian Beer Festival. And locals have a chance to experience the event from the inside – as a volunteer. Billed as Victoria’s biggest beer garden, local brewers together with micro- breweries from around the state will take over Geelong Racecourse from 11am to 7pm on February 2 with over 100 beers and ciders to taste. While the festival will be a celebration of great beer and the craftsmanship, artistry and passion that goes into its creation, live music will also be important in creating the right vibe. The festival will be set in a carnival atmosphere with live music, roving performers, brewing seminars and a smorgasbord of gourmet foods on offer. Festival goers will also be able to vote on the day for their favourite brew which will become the inaugural winner of a Great Australian Beer

As Geelong’s premiere youth theatre company, the Junior Players performs two shows a year. The Players has provided a launching pad for many young people who have gone on to become professional artists, such as patron and international opera star Peter Coleman Wright, Martin Croft, Cindy Lee, Angie Hilton, Amy Parks and many others in various areas of the performing arts. The company’s best-known product would be Guy Pearce. Auditions are held annually in March for a place in the workshop, which on completion allows members to then audition for a place in the main company. Boys and girls must be aged between 10 and 14. The Theatre Collective is for males and females who have participated in theatre previously either at school or in the community.

GSODA is the first step toward a career in acting for many Geelong youths. The Theatre Collective offers specialist master classes in acting, singing and dancing, with a musical production staged in September. Participants must be aged 16 to 21 years and apply before February 11, with classes commencing on February 20.

49 YEARS CONTINUOUS TRADING IN GEELONG : RACV

1060570-RMB04-13

THE SMALLEST vehicle in Mitsubishi’s SUV/4WD range, the ASX is a compact 2WD or 4WD SUV with a distinctive styling. Indeed it could easily be classed as a crossover because when it comes with 2WD it’s a hatchback with good interior space and better than average ground clearance. Add 4WD and you get the typical reasonable ability off sealed surfaces as with similar SUVs. Though it’s known as the Outlander Sport in some markets, Mitsubishi Australia has chosen to stay with the more common name of ASX (for Active Sports Crossover). Mitsubishi has given the ASX a softer look with its 2012 upgrade aimed more at hatchback buyers more so than those on the hunt for an SUV. However, the ASX still has the large grille look and seems sure to remain a major player in the small SUV market in Australia, the fastest growing of all areas in the sales race. Modifications to the shape include new bumpers front and rear as well as changes to the foglight surrounds and a revised shape to the so-called jetfighter grille. Inside, there are chromed accents and a new-design steering wheel with easier to use controls. Audio systems have been upgrade on all models. Even the entry level has i-Pod / iPhone compatibility. That in the 2WD and 4WD Aspire models has a 6.1-inch full colour touch screen and a rear view camera with parking reference lines. The newly introduced Mitsubishi ASX Aspire 2WD has 17-inch alloy wheels, chrome exhaust, front foglamps, leather seat trim with heated front seats and power driver’s seat along with leather-look door trim and privacy glass. Automatic lights and wipers add to the safety of a vehicle that’s already well equipped in this way.

Safety features across the entire ASX range include ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce distribution and brake assist, stability and traction control and front, side, curtain and driver’s knee airbags. Mechanical upgrades see fuel consumption and carbon output cut by about three to five per cent. The diesel engine is now best in class for official fuel efficiency, at 5.7 litres per 100 kilometres. The petrol unit runs at 7.7 litres per hundred kilometres on the combined cycle. In an interesting move, Mitsubishi has changed the settings of the continuously variable transmission (CVT) to make it sound and feel a little more like a conventional automatic transmission. The Mitsubishi ASX (for Active Sports Crossover) is either a compact SUV or a crossover depending on its mechanical specifications. When it comes with 2WD it’s a hatchback with good interior space and better than average ground clearance. Add 4WD and you get some reasonable ability off sealed surfaces. There’s good interior space with plenty of rear leg and headroom. The boot is a good size with a volume of 426 litres when the rear seatback is upright and 1193 litres with the backs folded. Mitsubishi ASX comes with the choice of two engines, a 2.0-litre petrol unit and a sophisticated 1.8-litre direct-injection turbo-diesel. The front-wheel drive Mitsubishi ASX has the option of either fivespeed manual or CVT automatic. The 4WD petrol is only available with CVT while the diesel only comes with six-speed manual. Mitsubishi ASX is a stylish and practical crossover and as well as the reduced prices it also has the added assurance of Mitsubishi’s five-year / 130,000-km warranty.

IndySport Indy Sport Cats set to jump finals hurdle GEELONG Cricket Club has given itself a good chance of winning its game against Dandenong this weekend. Bowling first last Saturday, Geelong dismissed the visitors for just 216 runs. Jake Reed lead the way with a timely five wicket haul, the paceman claiming 5/58, while Marc Carson, 2/57, and Jacob Thorne, 2/19, provided good support. In reply, the Cats had the unenviable task of copping Test paceman James Pattinson on the comeback trail. Pattinson took all three of the Geelong wickets that fell but not before Luke Muller, 28, and James Crossthwaite, 39 not-out, helped wipe 83 off the deficit. This Saturday is by far the most important day of the Cats’ season so far. With a finals spot on the line, they simply must win. With three rounds remaining before Geelong Cricket Association’s finals, this weekend’s match between St Joseph’s and Newtown & Chilwell shapes as a mini-final all of its own.

Local

cricket Jim Timberlake

Both teams suffered crucial losses to fellow final contenders last week and back-to-back defeats could spell curtains for the loser of this one. St Joseph’s desperately missed Trent Walerys last game while he was away representing the Victorian country side. His return will provide a much-needed boost to a team that lacked penetration. With the bat, Adrian McCormack played a lone hand last week, scoring a well-made 86. He will need support from the likes of Daniel Fanning and David Morgan but, more importantly, it’s time the likes of younger players Ravi Ravee and David Johnston stood up.

Newtown & Chilwell’s young side has taken great strides this season, with bats Jack Wood and Jon Carpenter starring and Justin Foss leading a talented young bowling line-up. While St Joseph’s experience will be important, the youthful desire of the Two Blues should see them win this game. Other selections: Highton v GEELONG CITY, Bell Post Hill v EAST BELMONT, Lara v SOUTH BARWON, North Geelong v GROVEDALE, Leopold v GEELONG WEST The competitive state of division two is highlighted by the fact just one game separates fifth placed Thomson and 10th placed St Peter’s. The Saints will have one last chance to keep their finals hopes alive when they host sixth placed Waurn Ponds. Stephen Illingworth, Jason Shields and David Boyd make up the nucleus of St Peter’s batting line up, while Illingworth and Callum Whitehead have enjoyed good seasons with the ball. For the Eagles, Matt Kennedy and Casey Lang lead a fine bowling unit but their batting has lacked

consistency, with Kennedy the only player to surpass the 200-run mark. This lack of depth is something St Peter’s should be able to capitalise on to win this game. Other selections: Modewarre v TORQUAY, THOMSON v Manifold Heights, Alexander Thomson v MARSHALL, Guild St Mary’s v NEWCOMB & DISTRICT, St Alban’s Breakwater v MURGHEBOLUC In division three, the youthful Little River team is starting to put some results on the board, winning three of its past four games to surge into the top six. This week it plays second placed Bell Park and the team will be fired to show it belongs up there with the big boys of the division. Young skipper Nathan Kenyon has enjoyed having the support of experienced players such as Michael Ebborn and Daniel Burrows in the ranks. Now is the perfect time for the rest of the side to show what its capable of and cement a finals place. Selections: LITTLE RIVER v Bell Park, WINCHELSEA v North Shore, CORIO v Bannockburn, LETHBRIDGE v Inverleigh, MEREDITH v Shelford.

Salmon from 1kg to 2kg lure anglers to hot action in surf and The Rip

On the

bite Brian Long

ANGLERS targeting salmon in the surf and from the bays enjoyed some of the most exciting action over the past week. Noel Farnsworth cast lures into the surf at Cinema Point, near Eastern View, to catch plenty of salmon from 900g to 2kg. Noel said the fishing was best on high tide. George Dingle enjoyed similar results from the rocks near Sheoaks River past Lorne, with Braid Marauders his standout lure. Peter Welsh trolled The Rip, catching lots of 1kgplus salmon on a deep-diving minnow-pattern lure. The salmon were creating plenty of surface action but constant boat traffic over the fish sent them deep, hence Peter’s lure choice. Young Theodore Kio needed a little help to land quality salmon while casting lures from the shore near Point Lonsdale. The salmon have been pushing bait into the shallows along the beach between Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff, making for plenty of hot action late in the evenings. Alcoa Pier hosted salmon and a few nice kingfish, most 60cm to 75cm but with much larger fish lost to anglers fishing with light tackle.Young Elijah Walsh hooked up a 90cm snook, the biggest fish he had ever caught, near Swan Bay. This species is common at this time of the year and usually caught on cast or trolled lures. Swan Bay produced flathead to 75cm along with plenty of garfish, leatherjacket and mullet, with the best fishing two hours either side of high tide. Squid remained patchy but hitting the grass beds in close to Edwards Point at first light still returned bag-limit captures, with small natural- coloured jigs working best.

BEACH BABY: Theodore Kio with a salmon from Point Lonsdale.

SNOOKERED: Elijah Walsh with his 90cm snook. Swan Bay Jetty produced garfish late in the evening, with berley essential to attract and hold the fish. Anglers fishing close to Bird Rock enjoyed the best whiting action, with fish to 35cm caught during the lead-up to high tide on South Australian pippies. Soft plastics anglers struggled to catch snapper while drifting the spoil grounds off Hermsley but took some nice pike and reasonable flathead in less than 3m of water. Darren Forbes fished the boat moorings at the grammar school lagoon from his Hobie kayak, catching salmon, bream, trevally and flathead on Gulp Turtleback worms in the Pumpkin Green colour.

Plenty of redfin were still available in the Barwon River in and around Geelong. Greg Stevens cast small Rapala lures near Landy Field late in the afternoons, having little trouble landing more than a dozen fish on every occasion. Tye Fisher used small bibbed Rapala lures between Buckley Falls and the ring road to land plenty of redfin to 800g. I watched Nathan Page fishing Fyans Park near the old boat ramp this week where he grassed five big carp on unweighted bread baits, along with a tench around 1.5kg. Lake Tooliorook was inconsistent, with many anglers struggling to troll up trout. However, persistence was rewarded, with a

Tassie Devil lure taking at least one brown trout of 2.88kg. Most fish caught at the lake recently have been rainbows from 900g to just over 2kg. Terry Harvey found the trout willing to bite at Ballarat’s Lake Wendouree. Using mudeye pattern flies, he caught and released eight fish around 900g. This weekend’s morning high tides should be ideal for salmon on lures in the surf around Lorne. Freshwater anglers should try trolling gold-coloured Tassie Devils at Lake Tooliorook.
