‘Jump postie’ jobless

Defeated Hawks left mark on Cats, says Scott JOHN VAN KLAVEREN CATS coach Chris Scott is worried about the injury impact of last week’s Hawthorn clash despite looming opponent North Melbourne losing its past seven against Geelong. Scott highlighted as concerns the Cats’ six-day break and leg injuries to forwards Steve Johnson and Mathew Stokes. “Are we going to be affected because of the hard game, probably, but we’ve got to be able to rise above that,� Scott told a media conference this week. “There’s a physical component to it but they’re a pretty resilient group and have been through that before. “I’d back our people in to be as well-prepared as possible. On the mental side I have no doubts. “But we won’t know for sure until Sunday afternoon.� Scott said the club would closely monitor leg injuries to Johnson and Stokes. “Steve’s corky is significant, it affected him a little bit but I expect him to be okay. “Stokes also got a cork really early in the game. I wouldn’t be surprised if it affected him, even though he says it didn’t. “We’ll do everything we can to make sure we know they’re right, which is why we have a conservative policy. “That was the case with Orren (Stephenson) last weekend and maybe the case with others this weekend.� Scott said he expected Stephenson to play as part of the Cats’ preferred structure of two strong key forwards and two ruckmen. Youngster George HorlinSmith was “really close� to senior selection, Scott said. “He was perhaps our 24th player last week and he’s pushing hard again.� Scott expected speedy pair David Wojcinski and Travis Varcoe to return via the VFL in the next two to three weeks.

A spokesperson for Australia Post said the company had “zero tolerance (for) any unsafe behaviour�. “We are extremely disappointed by this incident,� the spokesperson said. “Australia Post takes a matter like this extremely seriously and the person involved no longer works for us.� The postie in his 20s was filmed attempting to jump a makeshift ramp in his Australia Post uniform on his boss’ motorbike during delivery rounds on Tuesday.

City push for autism school BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A GROUP of parents is pushing for an autism-specific school in Geelong. Group spokesperson Magic Barkley said autism diagnosis rates in the region were increasing, with some areas as high as one in 25. “Geelong is behind the eight ball for services to families of children on the autism spectrum,” Ms Barkley said. “We estimate up to 40 per cent of children on the autism spectrum would be suitable to attend an autism specific school. “Melbourne has four dedicated autism spectrum disorder (ASD) schools but we have nothing.”

Ms Barkley said Geelong’s existing schools for children with disabilities – Barwon Valley School and Nelson Park – had significant numbers of ASD students. “Nelson Park has 40 per cent of its students on the autism spectrum. There are also large numbers of ASD students in mainstream schools who should not be there. “Then there are students who are at Nelson Park who could be in mainstream schools with more help. “I know of students who have been shunted from mainstream schools to Nelson Park and back again. “It’s a broken system that just can’t keep up. Government is

turning its back on families left, right and centre.” A spokesman for Education Minister Martin Dixon said State Government was committed to supporting ASD students in Geelong. The students had additional support including psychologists, speech therapists and a teaching coach through the region’s “autism-friendly learning plan”. The spokesman said a significant number of students at Nelson Park and Barwon Valley had a dual diagnosis of ASD. “The needs of these students are being considered in the planning for special schooling provision into the future.”

Surveillance cameras ‘stop thugs, save life’ He credited the cameras with helping drive a “heavy reduction” in antisocial behaviour. A further 12 cameras could be added to the system soon, he said. A camera operator monitors the network between midnight and 5am Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Sgt Connolly said the operator was in contact via radio with police on the streets and in vans, nightclub operators, cleaners, taxi drivers and even McDonald’s staff. The expanding network of cameras was part of “preventative and proactive” policing in central Geelong, he said. “It’s about early intervention. We’ve

proved that if we get in and identify minor issues earlier we’ve got a better chance of reducing more-serious injuries later on. “We can send police into a particular area promptly then they can move onto the next job and we still have the group monitored with the cameras.” Sgt Connolly said the cameras increased perceptions of safety in the city area while helping “identify issues” rather than just targeting offenders. The security system recently helped save a girl’s life when an operator noticed her collapsed in the street. “The camera operator saw her lying down and no one was around. He was

able to call a cleaner nearby who was hooked up on radio and they saved her life.” City Central Geelong manager Dean Frost said council had installed four cameras in Moorabool St and one in Ryrie St in the past 18 months. The cameras were watching the city’s new “super bus stops” and “monitoring nightlife activity”, he said. Council community safety portfolio holder Jan Farrell said the system was “continuously evaluated”. “Council is constantly looking to upgrade the security camera system, taking feedback from Victoria Police, central Geelong traders and venue operators and our own staff,” she said.

BUNNINGS has moved a step closer to opening a Norlane store after a council vote this week. Councillors agreed to ask the state’s Planning Minister to rezone a former Ford site on the Princes Hwy for Bunnings to relocate from its existing store in Corio later this year.

Storm havoc STORM damage to Geelong homes on Monday has prompted a State Emergency Service call for home owners to safeguard their properties against “severe weather events”. An SES spokesperson said units in the Geelong area received 50 requests for help, with residents advised to “be proactive” on maintenance of household gutters and drains and to secure “loose items” in the event of storms.

Gallery ‘busy’ ALMOST 58,000 patrons visited Geelong Gallery in the last financial year, according to its annual report. The gallery reported 57,845 visits in 2010/2011, up almost 6000 on the previous year.

G21 funded GEELONG’S council has again agreed to provide the bulk of funding for an organisation working on regional strategies for the area’s five councils. Councillors voted this week to provide G21 with $403,000 over the next four financial years, based on City of Greater Geelong comprising 76 per cent of residents in the region.

Shell ‘incident’ A “HAZARDOUS materials incident” prompted a warning for residents in Geelong’s northern suburbs to stay away from Corio’s Shell refinery on overnight on Saturday, according to a CFA statement. The CFA and Shell released a joint statement on Sunday morning, saying refinery staff “reacted quickly” to the chemical leak before an all-clear signal about 2am Sunday.

Arena plan COUNCIL has adopted a master plan to improve Geelong Arena’s facilities for basketball and events, Mayor John Mitchell has announced. He said the Geelong Arena plan presented three options for extending the venue’s “annex” with more change rooms, a café, toilets and other facilities.

Deadly mushrooms’ ideal season BY MICHELLE HERBISON THE REGION’S ideal autumn for poisonous mushrooms has prompted a warning from the state’s health chief. Acting Victorian chief health officer Dr Michael Ackland warned poisonous mushrooms often appeared similar to edible varieties. Two people died after accidentally ingesting “extremely toxic” death cap mushrooms in Canberra earlier this year. The death cap was responsible for 90 per cent of mushroom

deaths and could kill within 48 hours, Dr Ackland warned. “Yellow staining mushrooms are often gathered and mixed with field mushrooms and can cause nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhoea in some people.” Melbourne’s Royal Botanic Gardens scientist Teresa Lebel said the death cap was widespread across Melbourne and regional Victoria between January and June, especially about a week after heavy rain. Scientist Alison Pouliot, who runs mushroom education work-

shops in the Otways, said mushroom foraging required knowledge and skill. “Folklore rules about edibility always have their toxic exceptions and are therefore not failsafe,” she warned. Ms Pouliot said early rain had prompted mushroom growth around the region. “Mushroom picking appears to be a favourite new autumn activity but in Australia knowledge about the edibility of mushrooms is scant relative to many European and Asian nations.”

BY CHERIE DONNELLAN A GEELONG man trying to cross the Nullarbor on a skateboard is half way to proving his critics wrong, he told the Independent this week. Mental health advocate Aaron Salta said he passed the midpoint of his 2000km journey this week. But covering 1200km in 10 days so far was taking its toll. “My legs are all swollen,” Mr Salta said. “Actually, they’ve doubled in size but I’m treating them with saltwater baths and massages.” Mr Salta said the pain was “worth it” to raise awareness of depression. He initially hoped to raise $10,000 for mental health but was now aiming for $20,000 after attracting widespread media attention. “I’ve had great support from newspapers, radio stations and television networks. “The attention is great because the whole reason I’m doing this is to make people aware of mental health issues.” Mr Salta revealed to the Independent in February that he had battled depression for two years. “I’m in a really good place and want others to feel like this as well. Because I understand what depression feels like it’s given me more drive to do this.” Mr Salta thanked friends Damien Ryan and Sean McLaughlin for keeping him focussed on skating at least 100km a day. “I actually did 144 kilometres the other day. That’s been my biggest day of skating so far.” Mr Salta said he spent months running up to 14km a day preparing for the challenge.

BY MICHELLE HERBISON A HIGH-TECH surveillance network with eyes and ears on Geelong’s streets is curbing night-time crime, according to police. The city’s expanding network of surveillance cameras also recently saved a life when it captured a girl collapsed alone, police said. City of Greater Geelong confirmed 27 security cameras were now monitoring two dozen locations around the city’s centre 24 hours a day. Geelong Police liquor licensing unit’s Sergeant Shane Connolly said the network was helping “change the culture” of the city after dark.

500 in say on Barwon Heads kinder BY MICHELLE HERBISON MORE than 500 residents have made submissions on council plans for a new Barwon Heads kindergarten, according to a councillor. Andy Richards labelled council’s consultation process for the proposed Barwon Heads’ early learning centre a success after submissions closed last week. Council accepted the submissions concurrently with public comment on a master plan for the town’s Village Park to include the kindergarten. Residents are split over the plan, with objectors concerned the centre would take up too much of the park. The proposal includes preschool, maternal and child health and multi-purpose rooms with playgrounds and provision for an external storeroom. The Independent reported in October that Barwon Heads’ existing kinder would be unable to

Success: Andy Richards meet demand for enrolments until the new facility was built by 2014. Councillors voted in February to proceed with the $3.7 million Village Park kinder plan instead of building on an alternative site next to the town’s community garden on Barwon Heads Rd. Cr Richards said council officers would read through the submissions over the next fortnight. “Considering we only got 370 submissions to the Barwon Heads

structure plan process, I think this process has gone well. Residents have been able to have their say.” Barwon Heads kindergarten futures committee’s Anissa Yttrup said the urgency for a new kinder had been “lost” amid argument over the preferred site. Ms Yttrup said the Village Park plan had “a lot of positive support”. The kinder would occupy only one per cent of the park, she said. The location would also be central, with less passing traffic and proximity to established walking tracks and a school crossing. Save the Village Park’s Karyn Howie said her group had received a lot of interest from residents “wanting to save the integrity of the park”. Ms Howie said many residents were upset council added the kindergarten to the park’s master plan “without consulting anyone” then “rushed” the process.

Association’s Paul Westcott said the string of suspensions was “almost farcical”. “I was using the trains on Tuesday when the suspensions were announced and people on the platform (at Southern Cross) seemed to react with resignation. “I think commuters have just become used to hearing there are problems with the service.” Mr Westcott said problems would continue until State Government ordered infrastructure upgrades. “Because there’s more than one body in charge of public transport in Victoria there’s often a lot of blameshifting going on when there are problems.” “I’ve received a lot of complaints about the public transport system of late from people fed up with the lack of action.” Mr Eren said Mr Mulder was failing to deliver his election promise that “the buck stops with him”. University student Sri Constable said she spent two and a half hours travelling home after last week’s suspensions. “Then yesterday I was told I had to go back to Southern Cross Station and catch the bus home because the trains stopped running.”

BY CHERIE DONNELLAN RAIL commuters can expect a return to normal services after more than a week of delays due to a faulty cable, according to V/Line. Spokeswoman Clare Steele said the cable was fixed after delaying thousands of commuters between Geelong and Melbourne. Ms Steele told the Independent V/Line had installed a new cable, so “no further delays would occur”. Commuters were stranded at midday Tuesday when V/Line shut down Geelong services between Southern Cross and Marshall stations. Ms Steele said a temporary replacement for the faulty 25-year-old underground cable “failed to hold”, leading to further delays after last week’s service suspensions. V/Line cancelled services for 24 hours while engineers worked on the line between Lara and Little River stations. Travellers heard on Tuesday they should expect “to add up to half an hour” to their trip if they used V/Line’s replacement bus services. The company announced services had resumed “as normal” at midday Wednesday. Public Transport Users

Designs on city centre BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN CONTROVERSIAL British architect Will Alsop will join leading designers and planners in a two-day workshop on Central Geelong, according to its organiser. Deakin University head of architecture Prof Hisham Elkadi said the workshop was part of a Vision II project to revitalise the city centre. Prof Elkadi, a Vision II project director and Icon for Geelong competition judge, said the workshop was a first for the city. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We will be bringing in international and Australian experts in architecture, urban design, planning and sociology,â&#x20AC;? Prof Elkadi said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the big practices in Victoria will be represented and they have all agreed to come for a day to support the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having so many top architects in one place for one day has never happened before, so it shows a high level of commitment.â&#x20AC;? Mr Alsop has applied his modernist, avant-garde architecture to several distinctive and controversial buildings featuring bright colours and unusual forms. His design for the Londonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Peckham Library won the UKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most

prestigious architecture award, the Stirling Prize, in 2000. Mr Alsop, who has held a number of academic posts, believes in a strong connection between art and architecture. His paintings and sketches have been exhibited alongside his architectural projects in dedicated exhibitions. The international principal of global architectural firm RMJM also sits on several design and advisory boards, including a Yorkshire Forward Urban Renaissance Panel. Prof Elkadi said the workshop aimed to create a vision for Central Geelong to â&#x20AC;&#x153;revive the city and knit it together againâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is part of a continuous program.â&#x20AC;? Prof Elkadi said a gallery space would be set aside at Deakinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Waterfront campus to exhibit ideas and concepts from the workshop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will be a permanent gallery for Vision II so the public can look at the work and provide feedback.â&#x20AC;? Prof Elkadi said Mr Alsop would also deliver a public lecture. State Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department of Planning and Community Development has funded the Vision II with Committee for Geelong, council and Deakin University as partners.

mini gig environment in the fitting room,” Mr Coombes said. “Selected garments are tagged with a unique RFID code and when taken into the purpose-built fitting rooms the technology initiates a play list individually selected to reflect the style of the garment.” Mr Coombes said the technology was designed to appeal to younger consumers. “We know that Gen Y defines itself by music and that fashion is also a means of self-expression, so we thought ‘Why not combine the two’.” The RFID system transmits

electronic information between a garment tag and a reader via a wireless system. The system operates without requirements for human intervention or line of sight, with the computer activating when the garment and reader are in proximity. Mr Coombes said Cotton On worked with a leading RFID engineering company, Unique Micro Design, to develop the technology. The system debuted at a Cotton On store in Carindale, Queensland. Mr Coombes said the company would expand the technology to

other locations in coming months. “In our search for tracks that reflected our garment styles we focused on hot-off-the-press, emerging Australian artists and cutting-edge international acts not yet spun on commercial radio.” Mr Coombes said customer feedback would shape future applications of the RFID technology. Cotton On Group encompasses seven brands, 8000 employees and almost 1000 stores in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, South Africa, Germany and the USA.

Stun gun ‘fear’ on FoI stats devices in Bendigo and Morwell. Youthlaw co-director Tiffany Overall said the figures compounded concerns about the potential lethal combination of use of force and Tasers. “The rationale behind Geelong and Ballarat being first was the high number of reports of capsicum spray use,” Ms Overall said. “That’s consistent with the reasonably high figures for Geelong on incidents of use of force. Ms Overall said Tasers could act as a deterrent but she was concerned about misuse. “If used appropriately they can play a role but they can be subject to regular or frequent misuse.” Ms Overall said the use of force figures, obtained through Freedom of Information, should be publicly available. “The release of figures can allow the public to monitor the use of Tasers,” she said. “The figure on complaints against police raises again the preference to have an independent body to investigate complaints rather than police investigating police.”

Star power: Amy Lephamer.

Amy hosts Star Search AN AUSTRALIAN stage star will take a lead role in Geelong’s premier young talent quest 12 years after her own victory, according to organisers. They said Amy Lehpamer had agreed to compere this year’s Powercor Star Search after winning the event’s instrumental category as a violinist in 2000. Last year Lehpamer had the lead role in the Australian premiere of Broadway hit musical Rock of Ages. She has also starred in other theatre productions including Dirty Rotten Scoundrels and Shane Warne the Musical. The 26-year-old left Geelong after high school to study an arts degree in English literature and Japanese at Melbourne

University before forging a career on stage. Rotary Club of Highton’s Star Search is encouraging vocalists and instrumentalists to register online at starsearch.net.au for a chance to share in the prize pool of $7000. This year’s grand final will begin 7.30pm on May 11 at Geelong’s Costa Hall. Vocal auditions begin at St Lukes Uniting Church, Highton, on April 24. The church will host instrumental and group auditions on May 1. “Both soloists and groups are encouraged to enter,” organisers said. “Who knows, someone may emerge as another Amy Lehpamer.” The Independent is a sponsor of Star Search.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN NEW POLICE use-of-force figures have fuelled fears Geelong’s Taser rollout could lead to further violence, according to a legal service. Geelong ranked seventh on a list of top 10 regions for reports of “use of force” by and against police. Melbourne and Dandenong topped the 2011 list. Geelong ranked second in a top 10 for complaints to Victoria Police’s ethical standards department in 2010/2011. Melbourne ranked first, with Dandenong third. The figures showed 527 incidents of reported police use of violence in the Geelong service area between 2008 and 2011. The Surf Coast police service area had 104 reports. Reportable incidents included attacks on police and incidents in which officers used capsicum spray, handcuffs and batons or drew Tasers or guns. Victoria Police recently revealed it would arm Geelong and Ballarat officers with 30 stun guns this year during the first phase of a statewide rollout The Tasers green light followed a 12-month trial of the

Bank grant boosts Karingal appeal A $10,000 GRANT has boosted a Geelong community campaign to ease the load on carers of people with multiple scleroris and other disabilities. Westpac’s community grant program gave the money to disability services provider Karingal for its $1.5 million Melaluka project. The project seeks to build a facility near Leopold to provide 2500 nights of respite accommodation for up to 300 people with disabilities. Karingal chief Daryl Starkey was rapt with the grant. “We are delighted to have been selected as a Westpac community grant recipients,” Mr Starkey said. Wespac commercial banking regional manager for Geelong Tony Harman said the bank would provide further help to Karingal. “We are looking forward to providing support throughout 2012, assisting with raising awareness and helping with the good work being done by Karingal in the community.” The Independent is a supporter of the Melaluka appeal.

‘Speed up’ for NBN, city told BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG must be more decisive to cash in on its early rollout of the national broadband network, according to a former Telstra executive. John Stanhope took the lead role in negotiating Telstra’s agreement with Federal Government and network supplier NBN Co. Mr Stanhope said Geelong must shake off its traditional slowness in making a decision to capitalise on the information technology revolution. Geelong’s inclusion in the next round of rollouts gave it a “head start on other parts of the country”, he said. “But decisions need to be made

quickly. Having lived in Geelong, a place that’s still close to my heart, I know that decisions in the past have taken too long. “Survival in a transitioning economy means quicker decisions are needed.” Mr Stanhope said early inclusion in the rollout would provide Geelong with increased productivity opportunities. “Geelong would benefit immediately from the stage one efficiencies but more importantly will be the developments down the line. “Applications that have not even been thought of yet will be developed as the speed the NBN provides becomes widespread. “Some of Geelong’s road and rail infra’ problems may be over-

come by high speed broadband.” Mr Stanhope said Geelong should seek to establish a hub of businesses utilising high-speed broadband. “That will help attract businesses aiming to leverage from the NBN, particularly in growth areas. “But it can take a long time to crank up, so Geelong needs to get its entrepreneurs going to attract those industries and get employment to the area.” Mr Stanhope had senior positions at Telstra including chief financial officer and finance group managing director. He was also an executive director of Telstra Board until his retirement last year.

Pieces fit for jigsaw lovers

MASSIVE

SAVINGS

Join the club JOHN VAN KLAVEREN NO ONE has any trouble finding the next piece in the puzzle at Springdale Neighbourhood Centre. The bigger problem is deciding which puzzle to choose – the centre’s Jigsaw Club has 5000 of them stacked floor to ceiling and almost wall to wall. “Actually I don’t really know exactly how many there are,” club coordinator Neville Burrows admits. “I just know there’s an awful lot of them.” The club began in Neville’s Ocean Grove lounge room with friends and acquaintances dropping in for a cuppa, a chat and a jigsaw. “It was very sociable because when we first moved down from Melbourne we didn’t really know anyone,” Neville said. But it wasn’t long before the club “started taking over the house”. Springdale centre coordinator Anne Brackley offered the solution. “The council put the shelves in and the club continued to grow, with people adding jigsaws to the collection,” Neville said. “I had a bloke turn up on my doorstep one day saying he had a few jigsaws after clearing out the cupboards – he had 40 of them.” Neville is now kept busy on the first Thursday of every month dealing with an increasing number of aficionados drawn to the jigsaw room. “It’s a good pastime, particular-

Some are more creative, looking for inspiration from the jigsaw gods to find the right piece for that frustratingly annoying gap. “And some are more logical. I sort all the pieces into groups first then build little blocks and gradually join them together.

“Others might do all the sky or the grass first but, be warned, not all our puzzles lend themselves to doing the border first,” Neville laughed. He said families often borrowed puzzles just to have around and occasionally put a piece in until it was done. Neville said he was keen to open the jigsaw room more often to allow more people to use them. He said more information was available by phoning him on 5255 2837 or visiting spring dale.org.au.

BY CHERIE DONNELLAN A LEOPOLD man’s fatal crash at Moolap during Easter was a tragic reminder motorists should take more care on local roads, according to Geelong’s top cop. Inspector Gary Bruce said Geelong’s police service area had three “serious injury collisions” from last Thursday to Monday. Gary Henman died instantly when his Nissan Skyline hit a power pole on Portarlington-Geelong Rd about 11pm

Sunday. Insp Bruce said Geelong Police recorded 12 road accidents and 209 traffic offences over Easter. “There were also 11 reported alcohol-related driving offences.” Police would continue a strong presence this year to combat the road toll, Insp Bruce said. “We’re determined to reduce the number of fatalities for the year. We’re making our road policing emphasis as strong a possible.”

letters Changes hurt Watch

Taxed off the land

IN CHERIE Donnellan’s March 30 story about Neighbourhood Watch’s Facebook trial, Leading Senior Constable Andrew King made a slighting reference to volunteers: “The program took a body blow because many volunteers were resistant to the changes”. His implication was that the volunteers were flawed in some way. He remarked that about 50 per cent of local members quit. The reasons for this were left unexplored. The elephant in the room is the unbalanced policecommunity partnership that is Neighbourhood Watch. It is a partnership between full-time paid staff of a state-funded autocratic bureaucracy and parttime volunteer members of a democracy. Former Chief Commissioner Simon Overland exhibited little empathy for Neighbourhood Watch. Members would reckon his changes, cancelling crime reports to areas and stopping police attending meetings, were a body blow that crushed member morale. Regrettably, in a bureaucracy change is often initiated by those who need to be seen to be doing something regardless of whether it is beneficial or not. Volunteers who considered the changes detrimental to Neighbourhood Watch, being powerless to oppose them, voted with their feet. Now if 50 per cent of an organisation’s member quit due to changes, what would it say about the changes or those imposing them? Peter Mackinlay Geelong

WE MUST embrace the future and tackle climate change is the ALP’s message to the public as Labor introduces a carbon tax to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from coal use. Will it reduce coal mining? Considering compensation for the carbon tax, the real threat to our manufacturing industries is the high Australian dollar, which is partly due to the mining boom. As manufacturing declines our farmland is up for grabs for foreign companies to expand coal mining and create employment. The ALP is not embracing the future and is destroying our farmland to provide jobs. Farmland provides food and jobs forever. Quarrying it leaves future generation, with a wasteland. If carbon tax funding for research of alternative energy without negative impacts on farmland or farming families produces results the ALP and Greens can be applauded. If coal exports continue to expand our manufacturing will decline and food producing farmland will be lost. What is the point of the carbon dioxide tax if coal exports continue? Kevin Guinane Gheringhap

Give ducks a shot

AS A CLIMATE sceptic I see no news of any tangible developments in terms of a cleaner environment or technological developments. Clean coal is a myth because it is doubtful any viable technology exists, with even Climate Minister Greg Combet waxing lyrical on numerous occasions about the rosy future of the coal industry. Coal leases have been issued secretly by the Victorian Government in prime food production areas and coal seam gas leases rival these in number. Over 200 climate change initiatives have achieved what? We will not see the end of oil and coal for a very long time. Federal Government is not forcing hybrid cars on the public in any emphatic fashion despite pre-carbon tax claims that behavioural change would ensue. Coal seam gas explorarion is also flavour of the month everywhere at great cost to the environment.

GARY Matchan (Letters, March 31) defended his right to hunt wild ducks in Australia. He stated that Australia was the only country in the world where game bird hunting was banned. Thank goodness I live in Australia, the lucky country, because it does not always follow what other countries are doing, particularly in animal welfare. Mr Matchan stated that dying naturally of starvation would be worse for ducks than to be shot out of the sky, sometimes injured to die a slow and painful death. Perhaps we should ask the ducks. Duck hunters cannot give any guarantee that protected duck species will not be shot in error. Duck hunting is a cruel and unfair sport. The only way it would be fair is if the ducks could shoot back. Suzanne Roberts Whittington

Same old power

Any contradictions here? If a quantum change in behaviour is happening, I would like someone to point it out All power to a cleaner environment but same-old, same-old seems to be the order of the day for some time to come at great expense to the paying public. Gary Oraniuk Geelong West

Optional preference IT IS time electoral commissions looked at Australia’s many and varied voting systems to make them uniform and relevant. In elections for the federal House of Representatives voters must put a number in each square, while for the Senate you can choose to put number one beside the party of your choice and have your vote automatically distributed according to the party’s preferences or you can number every square. This confused a large percentage of voters at the last federal election. Several marginal seats were won or lost on uncounted informal votes because voters had put a one beside a House of Representatives candidate without putting other numbers on the paper. The problems of having a minority government manipulated by minor parties and independents would be less likely if the voting system was less confusing. States have various systems and neither Queensland nor Tasmania has an upper house. New South Wales and Queensland have optional preferential voting, which means you can put one beside the candidate of your choice and ignore the others or you can fill in as many sequential numbers beside candidates as you wish. This is not first-pastthe-post voting and does not disadvantage genuine contenders. It is time for federal and state lower houses to adopt optional preferential voting to ensure simplicity and fairness for all voters and candidates. Bob Dare Portarlington

Keep council down VESTED interests appear to exert undue influence on Geelong’s council. As a result, it is believed council is biased in favour of industry and commerce at the expense of public interests. The fault might lie with Local Government Act provisions allowing delegation of decision-making to council administrators. Where delegations are unlimited, uncontrolled

and unsupervised, they can leave councillors in the dark about details leading to the decisions. If so, council would be unaware of vested interests influencing the administration’s decisions. Undue influence can lead council into errors of judgment and law or to allegations of corruption and pandering to mates. Local government has no standing under the Commonwealth constitution. Local governments are deemed service providers to communities. Accepting that the council is a service provider, it follows that council might not have the authority to dispose of public assets or Crown Land without the people’s consent. As service providers, why must councillors travel overseas on matters other than those required of service providers? Listening to public concerns, paying closer attention and management and providing services for all Geelong people would result in better services and performance. Local Government has twice sought recognition within the constitution. Twice the people have rejected it. Another attempt is proposed for the next federal election. Who would gain from the proposal? Local government would be the only beneficiary. Potentially local government could assume power to levy taxes et cetera and to change laws and regulations to the benefit of the few. John RL Wilson Norlane

Attack on unions BY INTRODUCING a new Construction Code Compliance Unit, the Baillieu Government is seeking to emulate the now inoperative and unlamented Australian Building Construction Commission by getting stuck into Victorian unions. Bafflingly, the unit is not even set up under any state law, so one wonders about its legality. In any case, its inspectors won’t have any workers to inspect for real or invented transgressions because the Baillieu Government has not initiated any significant publicly funded infrastructure projects.

Morris Finance Ian Perrett is the latest edition to join the expanding staff of professionals in the Morris Finance team as the New Business Development Manager. Prior to his commencement he had been employed with the NAB for 40 years working throughout Victoria and South Australia. His extensive knowledge and commitment to sourcing the right financial solution for his clients has been an invaluable learning tool for his new team as his â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;look outside the squareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; way of thinking provides a result that other financiers donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take the time to consider for their clients. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After having been entrenched in a big organisation all my life, to come into a private enterprise is very interesting,â&#x20AC;? he says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a lot more flexibility than working in a bank environment. At the end of the day, both have got the customer at the end of each transaction and everyone endeavours to look after them.â&#x20AC;? Although Morris Finance Ltd has clients located Australia-wide, Ian says that it is still very Geelong focused; contributing to local community organisations including Barwon Health fundraising events and supporting the Geelong Football Club.

Artist goes with ‘flow’ BY CHERIE DONNELLAN GOING with the flow is the only way to survive life on tour, according to Aboriginal singer-songwriter Shellie Morris. Morris said she was “addicted” to touring even though the constant travel took her away from family and friends. “It’s strange. If I’m home for two weeks I just want to get back on the road. “I’m flying somewhere new every week.” Morris said she had experienced a life of “juxtaposition” growing up in Sydney with her adopted parents then finding her indigenous family in the Northern Territory and now touring domestically and overseas. She believed that her versatility as an opera-trained singer, multi-linguist and contemporary songwriter created a dynamic experience for audiences. “I can sing in 12 different aboriginal languages...and I have a big vocal range.” Morris said audiences could expect “incredible music” and a “journey” during her latest tour, Shellie’s Story. “The songs I wrote (for this tour) have a lot to do with my family – both of them – and how I found my place. “But I think my songs can relate to

everyone.” Morris said her schedule included the six-week tour, workshops in the Northern Territory and releasing a new album before performing at the London Olympics later this year. Morris has performed three times at Sydney’s Opera House, at the 2000 Sydney Olympics opening ceremony and in London Festival Hall. She has performed solo, with Australian “super group” Black Arm Band and alongside renowned acts like Sinead O’Connor and Grinspoon. Her work with Black Arm Band had taken her music career to new heights, Morris said. “(Black Arm members) Lou Bennett, Archie Roach, Shane Howard and Jimmy Little have been mentors to me.” Morris said her work with youths and an ambassador for Fred Hollows and Jimmy Little foundations was humbling. “I work with them on health and literacy issues through music. Morris said she enjoyed getting back to her home in Darwin for the simple comforts of “pizza and beer”. “I love the Darwin sunsets, too.” Morris will perform at Drysdale’s Potato Shed on Sunday and Monday.

Corlett to expose ‘power of words’

Busy life: Shellie Morris is on the road to Drysdale’s Potato Shed.

Deakin Waterfront Cafe

BY CHERIE DONNELLAN STORYTELLING has power, according to David Corlett. The documentary maker and writer hoped audiences at Airey’s Inlet’s Lighthouse Literary Festival next weekend would learn from him as much as they would also change his perspective. “I’m moved by hearing people’s stories and much of what I’ve done is to try and convey those stories to others,” he said. “I like when I hear stories that make me see a side I’d never thought of”. Festival organisers approached the Airey’s local because of his extensive research work on refugees and asylum seekers. Corlett is best-known for hosting SBS documentary Go Back To Where You Came From. “I’ve spent my life researching and writing,” he said. “I think my role is to help people understand the dynamics of other people’s worlds.” Corlett said his hosting role on the SBS show and his studies of other cultures had shaped his ideas about the power of words. “Words matter. Ideas matter,” he said. “How those ideas are conveyed can be more or less powerful. “I think it’s important for people to understand others’ stories and for those stories to be framed in the right contexts.” Corlett said he would participate in an artistic “exploration of silence” during the festival’s Saturday night program. He would host discussions about the “power of words to change people’s attitudes” alongside lawyer and refugee rights advocate Julian Burnside and radio presenter Amanda Smith during a Sunday session. The festival runs from April 20 to 22.

concerning brake control, vehicle stability management system, swivelling headlights and hill start. The Elite and Premium models get front and rear parking sensors, supplemented in the Premium with a rear view camera. Satellite navigation is still not available in any Hyundai models although we’ve been assured that the necessary system is in the advanced stages of development. All variants get Bluetooth connectivity including audio streaming as well as auxiliary and USB sockets. Active has a single CD player, Elite and Premium have a six-disc stacker with a more advanced audio system and both play MP3 and WMA discs. Elite and Premium models also use a proximity key with push button start/stop. Fuel consumption figures from both engines are most impressive with the Active CRDi manual using just 4.7 litres per 100 kilometres under the ADR 81/02 test. During the press launch we achieved around 5.5 L/100 km without any attempt at economy driving. We’ll be interested to see what we can achieve during our upcoming extended test. The official figures for the petrol models range from 6.8 to 7.7 L/100km. So there are plenty of good reasons for the mid-sized family buyer to add the Hyundai i40 Tourer to their shopping list: good looks, functionality, reasonable pricing and fuel efficiency. As with all Hyundai models, the i40 Tourer has a five year/unlimited kilometre warranty.

BY ALISTAIR KENNEDY tyling is very much to the fore from the dynamic Korean carmaker, Hyundai, these days. Even the humble station wagon, in the form of the Hyundai i40 Tourer, gets some striking good looks. The Hyundai i40 comes into its own when viewed in profile, with its long flowing lines making it a real headturner. Another eye-catching feature is a pair of eyebrow shaped LED daytime running lights, a first for Hyundai and one that gives the car a real presence on the road as well as improving its on-road visibility and so its safety. Although it’s likely to be viewed as a wagon version of the Hyundai i45, the i40 is actually built on a different platform. At 4.77 metres long it squeezes in between the Hyundai Elantra (4.51 metres) and i45 (4.82 metres). An i40 sedan will be produced but no decision has been made yet on whether it will be sold in Australia. Luggage space ranges from 553 litres with the rear seat backs in place to 1719 litres with the rear seat backs folded. There’s an extra 47 litres of hidden compartments below the cargo floor. The loading lip is low for ease of loading and there is a luggage rail fitted to the Elite and Premium models. Each of three model variants, Active, Elite and Premium, comes with the option of a 2.0-litre petrol or 1.7-litre turbo-diesel engine. The entry-level Active is available with either six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission; the two higher-specced variants only come with the auto gearbox. The diesel may be small in capacity but it’s a modern design with a big heart. We were impressed by its strong torque and the fact that turbo lag is kept to a minimum. Consumption of diesel fuel can be below five litres per hundred kilometres with a bit of attention to maximising economy. Five to six litres is the norm either on motorways or easy country roads. Around town the consumption still doesn’t go much over seven to eight litres per hundred kilometres. These are excellent numbers from a good-sized family station wagon. Ride and handling are both impressive with a good balance between firmness and comfort. We struck a few shallow potholes during our test but found no serious jarring or vibration. The Hyundai i40 Tourer is very much a car of its time in terms of safety and fuel efficiency. Standard across the range are nine airbags, ABS brakes with electronic brakeforce assistance and brake assist,

sport Swans to defy beefed up Eagles GEELONG Football League plays the remaining five games of round one on Saturday after Colac defeated West Saints in the opener last weekend. The league’s reputation as one of the best in the state was further advanced over the summer months, with four players drafted to AFL and VFL sides and the recruitment of ex-AFL players Brad Ottens and Ryan Gamble to Newtown. Reigning premier Bell Park lost Tom Couch to Melbourne and Jackson Sheringham to Geelong. Their loss will make things hard but new coaches Tim Sheringham and Ben Armstrong remain optimistic. Other new coaches to the league are Matt Kershaw at Lara and Jason Orr at St Mary’s, while South Barwon has named Josh McCann and James Garvey as co-coaches. Russell Robertson stays at Joeys for another year and all other clubs have stuck to last year’s coaches, namely Steve Clark at Leopold, Matt Cavendon at St Alban’s, Peter Riccardi at North Shore, Grant Tanner at Grovedale, Doug Scott at West Saints and Matt Gibson at Colac.

Ron Pilgram and Ross Dillon have another stint as co-coaches at Bannockburn. Geelong and District Football League also plays Selections: INVERLEIGH v Bannockburn, EAST round one games. GEELONG v North Geelong, BELL POST HILL v Thomson heads the list recruitment-wise, with Werribee Centrals, THOMSON v Belmont Lions, GFL star Lube Forbes crossing back to his old club. Corio v WINCHELSEA, Geelong West v ANAKIE. Joining him is a host of players including Brent MacLeod and Sean Voss. East Geelong has also recruited well for new Bellarine Football League plays round two this coach Tom Perrett. Jesse and Jayke Mawson have joined from South Barwon, with other noted names weekend. with the pick of the games at Drysdale joining them including Michael Jennings and where the Hawks host Anglesea. Drysdale had a heart-breaking one-point loss to Andrew Challis. Reigning premier Bell Post Hill retained Brent Ocean Grove last week, while Anglesea had a good Grgic as coach and should be strong again with min- win over Barwon Heads. The Hawks will gauge how well they are travelimal player loss and a couple of recruits. New coaches to the league are Dale Smyth at ling by the result of this match against top-five side Bannockburn, Scott McDonald at Anakie, Brett Anglesea. Expect the Hawks to win a close one. Pollard at Winchelsea, Luke Phillips at Werribee Other selections: BARWON HEADS v Centrals , Darren Ryan at North Geelong and Nick Portarlington, Newcomb v QUEENSCLIFF, Washington at Geelong West. Mark McDowell remains in charge at Corio, Paul Modewarre v OCEAN GROVE, TORQUAY v Nigro enters his second year at Belmont Lions and Amateurs.

BFL

FRANK MASON Expectations are high at all clubs but round one will soon sort out who has recruited well and but in the hard yards over the pre-season. The match of the day is at McDonalds Reserve where South Barwon hosts Newtown. Newtown boasts the recruits of the year but it’s yet to be seen whether that will convert into a premiership winning side. South Barwon is always hard to beat and will provide a good test. Selections: Grovedale v LARA, LEOPOLD v St Alban’s, South Barwon v NEWTOWN, St Joseph’s v BELL PARK, ST MARY’S v North Shore.

River retreat provides sheltered action for blown away anglers On the bite BRIAN LONG WEATHER over Easter made fishing challenging but anglers who applied a little effort reported reasonable captures. Paul West and son Jai tucked out of the wind just upstream of the Shannon Ave bridge to land seven magnificent size carp, the best better than 5kg, along with two tench both around 800g. Martin Shaw also fished the Barwon River, casting Oar Gee Lil Ripper lures upstream of Pollocksford Bridge where small redfin were dominant. By day’s end Martin had landed three redfin around 600g along with a respectable brown trout close to 1kg. Massive seas limited surf angling quiet but Brian Packer found a quiet location at Lorne just down from the hospital. Fishing late in the evening, Brian’s catch included flathead, salmon and a number of quality whiting to 48cm. Paul Dennis cast lures from the rocks at Stony Creek near Lorne where he found a nice shoal of salmon. Most were under 1kg but the sheer numbers made for exciting action. Young angler Tyson Faull was rewarded for casting small shallow-running bibbed lures in the Anglesea River along the shallow flats downstream of the Great Ocean Road Bridge. Tyson landed and released nine bream along with any number of small salmon. Paul Hunter fished Point Lonsdale Pier a number of times in the past week for generally lean pickings. However, the salmon showed up twice for Paul to

Before the storm: Matthew Alsop with a 4.5kg snapper caught on soft plastics in Corio Bay’s outer-harbour. finish on a tally of eight fish, the best 1.6kg. Dane Veldhuis fished Swan Bay for flathead, which was great choice since he caught and released four fish between 55cm and 65cm. Dane reported any number of garfish also responded to his berley. Neil Fitzgerald also found plenty of garfish in the bay, which he happily caught and proceeded to use as live baits to catch two nice gummy shark of

around 5kg each just on dark. Fishing soft plastics on the outer harbour spoil grounds was difficult in the strong wind but Terry Stirling persisted, lading a fantastic bag of fish. He caught 16 flathead and three snapper, with a follow-up session the next day returning a similar number of fish, including the only one he kept, a snapper of 3.4kg. Salmon averaging close to 1kg were found in

Corio Bay’s inner-harbour, although they were difficult to locate in choppy conditions. Stewart Doyle found them holding up close to Royal Geelong Yacht Club where he used his Hobie to fish the protected side of the marina for about a dozen salmon on soft plastics. Snapper captures slowed but were still available. The best action was in the outer-harbour, especially from the southern tip of Wilson Spit. Matthew Alsop landed a beauty of 4.5kg on an ultra-light soft plastics outfit late last week before the strong wind arrived. Joel Hunt also landed two snapper of 4.5kg each but on pilchard while fishing in front of Sands Caravan Park. Deep Lake remained a fantastic option for trout, with Powerbait accounting for the best captures. Lake Tooliorook produced trout over 2kg on a variety of methods. Trolling with Tassie Devils was successful, while with bait anglers found both Powerbait and local minnow effective. Peter Hamon and son Jack returned with four magnificent rainbows from Tooliorook, taken on Powerbait and worms. Redfin have also been fantastic at this location, with local minnow and ice jigs working. Ballarat’s Lake Wendoree should improve as the weather settles, with rainbow trout from 500g to 1kg common. Bait anglers have been the most successful, with both lure and fly set to come into there own as the water cleans. This weekend’s late-afternoon high tides should suit the surf either side of Lorne. Fish the deeper-water rock platforms with metal baitfish-profile lures for salmon. Freshwater anglers should try Deep Lake with Powerbait or worms off the bottom near the boat ramp or directly below the pines.
