Mayor first hand up for direct election
The Mitch pitch BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN MAYOR John Mitchell has announced his nomination for Geelong’s first direct mayoral election. Cr Mitchell said hed had received an “inordinate amount of support to run again”. “People from sporting and business circles and the general community have asked me to stand and I wanted to let them know of my decision,” he said. “I wanted to take the angst out of it and take the pressure off the initial announcement.” Residents will have their first chance to choose City of Greater Geelong’s mayor at council elections on October 27. Under the previous system councillors chose the mayor behind closed doors. The Independent revealed last week that the election would run under a preferential system rather than first-pastthe-post. Cr Mitchell said he had received encouragement from both sides of politics. “I’m not a member of a political party, so I’ll be representing everyone, not just sections of the community.” Cr Mitchell said he would run a grassroots campaign. “It won’t be an elaborate campaign. I still have some corflutes left over from the last election. “No doubt some people will throw a lot of money at it but I can’t afford that. I reckon $30,000 would be the upperlimit.” Cr Mitchell said he made his announcement early to avoid it becoming a distraction to his existing work as mayor. “It’ll be a long campaign but
that comes later. My sole focus is about being mayor of the day and I can guarantee that an election campaign will not get in the way of that.” Cr Mitchell said he was unconcerned State Government had yet to finalise the full process for the election and mayoral role. He was happy to stand on his record and achievements as mayor over the past four years. “We certainly bat above our weight in terms of grants received from state and federal governments in the last few years,” he said. Geelong Chamber of Commerce executive officer Bernadette Uzelac said she was unsurprised Cr Mitchell would stand again. “Now that John has shown his hand it might encourage any other potential candidates to announce their intentions,” Ms Uzelac said. “We’re looking for new leadership to take Geelong into the future. Geelong will look for more than simply the status quo. “The business community is looking for a strong leader who can help business grow in the region.” Geelong Trades Hall’s Tim Gooden said the first direct election might let a “person of the people” like Cr Mitchell stand but the system was flawed. “It’s a huge electorate, bigger than any state or federal seat, and changes the power base of the position of mayor. It can lead to corruption,” Mr Gooden said. “Ordinary workers are out of the race because it will cost up to $250,000 to run a campaign.”

Cars plan ‘dumped’ BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN STATE Government has dumped plans to relocate Melbourne’s import-export car trade to Geelong, State Government has confirmed. Ports Minister Dr Denis Napthine said a $2 million feasibility study found too many “impediments” for the move. Concerns included limited suitable land and restricted access to a one-way shipping channel, he said. The Independent reported in October extensive automotive industry opposition to the move. Dr Napthine said the car trade would consolidate in a new location at Webb Dock. Department of Transport “worked hard” to explore the potential of shifting the car trade to Geelong, he said. But the report ruled that themove “would not be viable”. “The automotive industry raised a number of serious concerns that would have adversely affected their operations. These concerns include the lack of suitable land at the Port of Geelong, which is required to conduct predelivery inspections on imported vehicles as well as to consolidate and prepare vehicles for export. “Access to the shipping channel also proved to be an issue, with ships facing delays due to restrictions in windy conditions coupled with the fact the channel is one-way.” Shadow ports minister Tim Pallas said the “sham of a process” had only disappointed Geelong. “The Government has treated the people of Geelong with contempt in coming out with this in the dead of night just after the budget announcement.” Nissan Australia spokesman Jeffrey Fisher said the decision confirmed car industry concerns. “We always thought any move out of Webb Dock would add to our costs.This decision helps us plan and gives that part of our businesses some continuity.”

Ford â€˜sticks with the battlerâ€™ BY CHERIE DONNELLAN FORD WILL stick with a parts supplier whose financial problems forced the car company to stop work for days, according to a spokesperson. Sinead Phipps said Ford would continue ordering parts from CMI Industrial even though it was in receivership. â€œItâ€™s business as usual for both Ford and CMI,â€? Ms Phipps said after Fordâ€™s Geelong staff returned to work on Wednesday. â€œOur preference is to continue working with CMI, so weâ€™ll wait to hear what the receivers say.â€? CMIâ€™s landlord locked the companyâ€™s workers out of their Melbourne factory last week over a rental dispute. The dispute shut down Fordâ€™s production plant as administra-
tors attempted to save CMI from bankruptcy. Ms Phipps said Ford cooperated with union representatives over staff arrangements during the shutdown. â€œWe brought forward some scheduled down days for this month so we could pay workers 50 per cent of their expected wage. They were then able to top that up with their annual leave entitlements.â€? Geelongâ€™s Ford senior shop steward, Brendan Sexton, was â€œhappy to be back at workâ€? but â€œworriedâ€? about more delays. â€œItâ€™s a shame that due to Ford outsourcing parts manufacturing weâ€™re affected by their stuff up.â€? Mr Sexton said the shutdown had raised concerns among some younger Ford workers
about meeting financial obligations. â€œI know itâ€™s a financial struggle for some of the younger guys to keep up with their mortgage and bills when this happens. If people were out of leave entitlements, they were losing money really.â€? Mr Sexton said he hoped Ford would put in place contingencies to â€œresolveâ€? issues like CMIâ€™s receivership earlier. â€œItâ€™s sad when big companies canâ€™t work together to deal with these issues early enough. â€œItâ€™s just hard for people who are doing a good job for the company to lose out for so long.â€? Fordâ€™s Geelong production plant shut for three days.

Westpac sues Ablett snr for defaulting on mortgage WESTPAC Bank is suing Cats legend Gary Ablett senior for defaulting on mortgage payments for his two Grovedale units. The bank has lodged a writ against the former champion AFL forward in the Supreme Court of Victoria. The writ said Ablett owed more than $186,000 on the mortgage for the
Meadowvale Dve units, bought in 2003. The four-time All Australian player, AFL Hall of Fame inductee and goal-kicking record holder for Geelong Football Club took out a loan for $172,500, the writ said. But Ablett “failed, refused and/or neglected to pay” the mortgage repay-
ments up to January 23 this year. Ablett was “wrongfully in possession” of the properties and had “failed or refused to deliver up possession” of the units, the writ said. Westpac was seeking damages and costs as well as possession of the units. Ablett played six games for
Hawthorn in 1982 and another 242 between 1984 and 1996 for Geelong. He kicked 1030 goals during the his career. Controversy has dogged his retriement, including the death of young Geelong woman Alicia Horan from a drug overdose in his Melbourne hotel room in 2000.
in brief Cats trusted USED-CAR buyers would have more trust in sellers who were Cats fans than supporters of any other AFL team, according to a vehicle research website. CarHistory said it had run a survey finding that buyers would have the most trust in Geelong supporters and the least in Collingwood fans, who were even suspicious of buying from each other.
Laneways start WORK has begun on a project funneling pedestrians throughout central Geelong to encourage “commercial activity, vibrancy and city living”, council has announced. Mayor John Mitchell said works on Brougham St behind Geelong’s Sheraton hotel was the first in a series of improvements to deliver the Central Geelong Laneways and Linkages project.

Florist wins A NOT-FOR-PROFIT florist in Manifold Heights has won a statewide award for its work employing staff with disabilities. Boxes and Bunches won 2012 Victorian Disability Sector Awards’ support worker category at a presentation evening in Melbourne late last week.
Experts’ visions ABOUT 60 leading architects, urban designers and planners have gathered in Geelong to create a “cohesive future plan” for the city’s heart, according to a Deakin University professor. Architecture school head Hisham Elkadi said the group of experts produced a “number of draft scenarios” to inspire discussion on central Geelong’s Vision 2 revitalisation project.
Spanish win A PAY TV program has announced Geelong’s Black Bull Tapas Bar and Restaurant as Australia’s best venue for Spanish food. Foxtel’s Lifestyle Food said its I Love Food Awards attracted votes from 134,000 restaurant customers around Australia.
Eco boost A $415,000 funding injection will help protect biodiversity at three coastal reserves, Geelong’s council has announced. Environmental works at Ocean Grove’s Buckley Park will receive $340,000 of the allocation, while $55,000 will go to Geelong’s Limeburners Bay and $20,000 to Breamlea’s Thompson Creek.

‘Stripping’ for dinner Ms Gillett said sustainability group Future Proofing Geelong planned to draft a nature strips policy for submission to council. Other councils in Melbourne and Sydney already encouraged plantings, she said. The group’s vision would complement many of Geelong council’s existing policies on issues including “walkability” and the environment. “You’re going to want to walk down a street all beautifully planted up with nice nature strips,” Ms Gillett said. She was among Independent readers who responded to a recent Buckets & Bouquets entry under the name Get Real criticising the use of nature
strips” as “communal… farmland”. Ms Gillett said nature strip gardening was also about “creating community”. “Everyone complains it’s not like it used to be,” she said. “Kids don’t play on the street and you don’t know your neighbours. If you start gardening on your nature strip everyone talks to you.” Cloverdale Community Centre’s Sue Hartigan said the centre ran a program about two years ago for people with disabilities to grow vegetables on the facility’s Corio nature strip. The strip was thriving as a communal herb garden that anyone could use, she said. “We just did it. Council didn’t say
anything to us.” Ms Hartigan said nature strips were under a “grey area” of responsibility. “If your nature strip is yours you should be able to do what you want with it. If it’s council’s they should maintain it. “We wanted to become a model to show people it’s really easy to grow your own food even in a small space.” City of Greater Geelong’s Brendan Gaudion said residents could install alternatives to grass subject to council approval. But council’s website says “finesize gravels that meet specific criteria” are the only permitted surface for nature strips other than grass.

BY MICHELLE HERBISON GEELONG residents are increasingly turning nature strips into vegetable gardens because council lacks policies to stop them, according to a community agency. Foodskil’s Katie Gillett said higherdensity living was decreasing residents’ private garden space, so many were planting on nature strips. Council workers occasionally requested gardeners return their nature strips to grass but rarely enforced it, she said. “There are no real rules in Geelong around nature strips. There are guidelines and VicRoads by-laws but there’s no council by-law.”

Tough budget hits sweet spot BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN The Baillieu Government has laced a dour state budget with sweeteners for Geelong. But Gordon Institute of TAFE faces a financial hit, with the government slicing funding for courses statewide. Treasurer Kim Wells said the budget focussed on “securing the future and rebuilding the state’s finances”. The budget allocated funding to fix problems plaguing Geelong’s rail link to Melbourne, including the purchase of additional V/Line rolling stock to increase capacity along with $172 million for regional track maintenance. The Government also delayed the introduction of the troubled myki ticketing system on V/Line rail services until mid-2013. Other announcements affecting the region included: $13.6 million for a co-located

G21 Alliance chair Cr John Mitchell said the $150 million to the region reinforced the Government’s belief in the area. Labor MPs Lisa Neville, Ian Trezise and John Eren condemned the Government for “failing to take action on jobs and growth for the Geelong region and the Bellarine Peninsula”. They said the Geelong Hospital funding was only $3.8 million this financial year.
Response ‘overwhelms’ riding charity BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN THE PUBLIC response to an Independent story about thieves raiding a tiny local charity has been “overwhelming”, its executive officer says.

App speeds up treatment time BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A MEDICAL app trialled in Geelong will speed up treatment for patients with serious injuries and illnesses, according to developer Lake Imaging. The Visage Ease app produces high-quality 3D and 4D images for doctors to inspect on iPhones, iPads and iPods. Lake Imaging partner Craig Lightfoot said the app had completed a successful trial in Geelong. He expected it to become a standard tool for doctors and specialists throughout Victoria. Mr Lightfoot said the trial used the technology to streamline urgent treatment for seriously ill or injured patients. â€œEarly diagnosis and treatment is the Holy Grail when it comes to optimising recovery in many
emergencies and illnesses,â€? he said. The app enabled doctors to view images stored on a server and pass them on to referring physicians. â€œThis now happens at the touch of a screen, reducing waiting times to a minimum,â€? Mr Lightfoot said. â€œThe Visage solution provides a much faster and higher quality means of communication compared to printed film or patient CDs.â€? Mr Lightfoot experienced the system firsthand during the trial when six-year-old daughter Clare broke her arm at home. The app allowed him to have Clareâ€™s X-ray examined and the fracture treated within four hours. â€œClare may well end up in the history books as one of the first patients in Australia to get the

express treatment,â€? he said. â€œThe specialist was able to see her X-ray in perfect detail on his iPhone, decide what needed to be done, treat her injury, book the surgery and she was back home four hours after the accident. â€œThis will make a huge difference to the diagnosis and treatment of patients, particularly in regional, rural and remote areas of Australia.â€? Dr Chee Keong Chan of Gateway Plaza Family Medical Practice said the app allowed him to inspect high-resolution images any time, anywhere. â€œWith the high resolution display on my iPad, the image quality of X-rays, CT scans and MRIs is impressive and comparable to desktop versions,â€? Dr Chan said. â€œIt is also a useful tool in patient education and explaining the results via my iPadâ€?.

Picture: Tommy Ritchie “We don’t have to worry about the ups “We just couldn’t collect enough of the wild spat. It was so poor for so long that and downs in climate.

But the Queenscliff facility was probably if State Government delivered plans for as successful spawning mussel spat as any upgrading Portarlington’s harbour.

Return to park ‘success’ for Queenscliff festival BY MICHELLE HERBISON QUEENSCLIFF Music Festival will remain in Princess Park after successfully moving from JL Jordan reserve, according to organisers. Director Michael Carrucan
said November’s festival was more successful than expected despite heavy rain on the Saturday. Attendance increased 21 per cent and ticket sales reached 8046, according to a council report. Mr Carrucan said patron sur-
veys received positive feedback on the new location. “It just seemed a nicer area and had a little bit of room to grow the festival with a little bit less impact on the town overall. With the orientation we could also project the sound mostly
out to sea. “We had a couple of complaints but you’re going to get complaints wherever you are.” The festival began at Princess Park in 1997 before moving to JL Reserve near the town’s train station until 2010.

BY MICHELLE HERBISON A STATE-OF-THE-ART shellfish hatchery at Queenscliff has sparked a Victorian mussel industry resurgence, according to State Government. Agriculture and Food Security Minister Peter Walsh said the facility helped the state’s mussel production grow 68 per cent to 951 tonnes in 2010/2011 year. Mr Walsh said a falling population of wild mussels was a “major obstacle” for the industry when the hatchery opened in 2008. “An unreliable supply of wild juvenile mussels had been threatening the viability of the Victorian mussel sector until a joint effort by mussel growers and Fisheries Victoria saw the hatchery established at Queenscliff,” he said. Mr Walsh expected the increase in production to improve further next year. Victoria’s total aquaculture industry, including trout, oysters, scallops and ocean fish, increased production 27 per cent last year, he said. Portarlington mussel farmer Lance Wiffen said his company had more than doubled production in the past few years. “Four or five years ago we were unable to fill our farms up with mussels and supply the markets we’d been building for the previous 10 to 15 years.

Lobby ‘spend doubt’ BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG’S council could reap a better return from its spending on two lobby groups, according to a former mayor. Cr Bruce Harwood questioned the effectiveness of both groups after council renewed its financial commitments to them. “There’s too much talk and not enough action. Too many glossy brochures, not enough rubber on the road,” Cr Harwood said. The mayors of the region’s five councils signed a four-year agreement last Friday to continue funding G21 Regional Alliance. Geelong’s council agreed in March to maintain its $22,000 membership of Committee for Geelong. Geelong council will provide G21 with funding of $403,000, based on its 75 per cent share of the region’s population. The contribution rises to $453,000 in the fourth year of the new agreement. Cr Harwood said the next council, to be elected in October, could revoke its G21 membership with a year’s notice. “Not only is the City the major funding body but also far and away the largest resource provider. Our senior management, officers and councillors are engaged in almost all the pillars of G21, which is a cost also borne by the City.” Cr Harwood said a streamlined panel of regional experts advising council would have greater efficiency and effectiveness. “Panel representatives would have the capacity to speak on behalf of their respective industries. “I’m sure there’ll be people who won’t be happy about this idea but it would reduce the time it’s taking us to get…firm ideas and commitments to Spring St and Canberra.”

PUBLIC MEETING NOTICE OF COUNCIL MEETING The next meeting of the Greater Geelong City Council will be held at the Council Conference and Reception Centre, City Hall, Little Malop Street entrance, Geelong on Tuesday 8 May commencing at 7.00pm.

Turbine seeking subsidies BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN AN INNOVATIVE Geelong-made wind turbine falls outside government green subsidies, according to its designer and manufacturer. Austeng’s Lyn George hoped the revolutionary design could qualify for the subsidies after the company bought a minor shareholding in the Renewable Energy Solutions Australia Eco Whisper turbine. “We’re putting our money where our mouth is because it’s creating a huge amount of interest,” Ms George said. Member for Western Victoria David O’Brien pledged to go into bat for the turbine.
“The Eco Whisper turbine is a great product but falls in the area between subsidies offered to households and the larger wind farm facilities,” he said. “I’ll be advocating to my parliamentary colleagues for this Australianowned-and-developed technology. If we can cut red tape or provide targeted assistance to small manufacturers it will hopefully help companies such as Austeng employ more Geelong workers.” Mr O’Brien said the project would create green jobs in the region. Austeng had Victorian orders for turbines and national and overseas sales were “on the cards”, he said.
The meeting is open to the public.

Storages near 80% after average April
MOST of the Geelong urban area and the Bellarine Peninsula received average to above-average rain in April. The Breakwater Racecourse weather station recorded the long-term average amount of 45.4mm, which is derived from readings over many years at the former Geelong Airport site. In contrast, most of the Otway Ranges, Golden Plains and Moorabool catchments were below average. Despite this, the storages remain at 79 per cent of capacity. This is on a par with last year and is a comforting situation for the region. Weather enthusiasts will be disappointed to learn the old Weeaproinah site in the Otways is no more after 111 years of operation. New property owners have closed down the station on the retirement of Frank Minchinton and the Bureau of Meteorology has as yet to provide resources for an automatic sta-
Under the weather LINDSAY SMAIL tion near the old site. Geelong Weather Services will attempt to include monthly figures from Beech Forest, Johanna Heights and Lavers Hill for comparisons. The nearby station at Wyelangta still operates but figures are only posted several months later. April’s average daily temperatures were around .7C warmer than the long-term average, given the
recent site change. The average daily minimum was 10.6C and the maximum 21.7C. This compares with 9.5C and 20.2C respectively for the airport averages. Factoring in the potentially misleading difference made by Geelong’s urban heat island effect, the overall result was a generally warmer April. One day was over 30C, on April 6 when the temperature reached 31.8C. The coldest day was April 24, with a maximum of 14.6C. The lowest overnight temperature dropped to 5.2C degrees on April 30. Three thunder days were recorded, on April 2, 22 and 23, while a severe storm lashed the region on April 6, the first for the year. The storm had wind gusts up to 76km/h at Breakwater, with some structural damage and fallen trees reported.
Paul to weather next charity ride BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG cycling enthusiast Paul Beretta hopes for good weather when he embarks on a 1600km charity ride this week. Mr Beretta will act as chief mechanic for Tour de Cure’s 90 cyclists, including his television presenter brother Mark. The event, in south-east Queensland, aims to raise $2 million for cancer research. Mr Beretta survived “atrocious” weather in a recent inaugural Country Kids Tour from Geelong to Warrnambool as a training ride for the main fundraiser. “The Country Kid’s Tour was set up to bring the cancer awareness and prevention message to country kids,” Mr Beretta said. “We visited primary schools and did presentations about being fit, healthy and happy, dispelling
