Death threats, family pet killed, legal action

RESEARCHERS’ MAGICAL MATS PAGE 9

GAWS crisis deepens GEELONG Animal Welfare Society is sliding into crisis amid union action, a member backlash and claims a family pet was accidentally killed. A former vice-president has also revealed that anonymous death threats drove members, staff, supporters and vets away from GAWS. Nadine Williams said staff forced out were still suffering anxiety and depression following a hostile Facebook campaign. The new crises include:

● life members challenging the board for sacking them over offences it refuses to specify; ● claims a Geelong family was shattered when its runaway Staffordshire terrier, ‘Sarge’, was wrongly euthanased after an administrative oversight; ● concerns dogs are being given away free after being desexed, cared for and immunised. ● a failure to reinstate a vital after-hours animal ambulance service decommissioned following threats against staff; and ● industrial disputes and the threat of union and legal action.

Ms Williams, one of seven former board and life members facing expulsion, said the previous administration had shortcomings but was moving toward reform when forced from office. Fifteen board members and 13 staff left after the successful campaign to introduce a no-kill policy. Ms Williams said animals were still being euthanased despite the policy. Dog deaths were down about 25 per cent but cat figures had changed little. “They tried to cover up the

killing of Sarge – I tabled the paperwork with the board. The family was devastated,” Ms Williams said. “They had a sick child and were back and forwards to hospital all the time. The dog kept getting out and was in and out of the shelter. “The owners asked staff not to put the animal down but the paperwork wasn’t properly checked.” Ms Williams, former board members and staff received anonymous death threats. No-kill supporters threat-

ened a staff member’s grandchildren, with the worker consequently quitting. The animal ambulance had lapsed as a result of the departure, while Vets told the Independent they withdrew services following the incident. GAWS president Ms Doherty did not respond to the Independent’s call for comment. Last week she told the Independent former board members and staff responsible for mistreatment of animals were “dragged kicking and screaming” into new practices at the shelter.

Naked ambition goes clop for waterfront tossers BY NOEL MURPHY BY RIGHTS KLOP PLAYERS SHOULD BE NAKED BUT EVEN THE BRAVE FINNISH WOODCHOPPERS WHO DEVISED THE GAME BAULK AT THE PROSPECTS. Sense and sensibility being what they are, the weather’s usually too cold and the spectators only amused for so long, so to speak. The contemporary sport , in which chunks of wood are chucked at other chunks of wood, has become a game for sunny afternoons and beers in the park, like an Aussie social-cricketmatch-cum-barbie. James Baird, who will run an Aussie National Klop Titles on Geelong’s waterfront next month, advocated the game’s free-form qualities. “Yes, legend has it the game was

first played by naked woodcutters,’’ he grinned. “And, yes, competitors can get a bit willing with a few beers in them but it can be strategic, there can be spoilers.” The official story is that a woodsman near the Finnish-Russian border would carve blocks from birch forests and throw them about to break the stultifying silence. The ‘klop’ sound of blocks striking each other also purportedly kept hungry bears at bay. The game involves tossing chucks at numbered wooden pegs. The first player to score 50 wins. Mr Baird said the game required no prior skill, with the titles offering $500 to the winner. The Geelong titles offered the chance to become klop’s “bona fide national champion’, he said.

Food ‘insecurity’ spreads BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN “FOOD insecurity” is spreading in Geelong, according to a council report. The report said many residents were unable to consistently put nutritious food on tables, while “vulnerable communities” were paying the most for a standard-size basket of healthy food. Geelong’s homeless youth had a 41 per cent risk of food insecurity, the report said. Elderly residents of the northern Bellarine Peninsula had a 19 per cent rate of food insecurity. The average price of a standard healthy food basket for a typical family of four in Geelong was $472.46, eating up 36 per cent of the income of families on Centrelink benefits, the report said.

Is it time for a new mattress?

Some of the most expensive baskets were on the northern peninsula, while areas in the north of Geelong had limited access to healthy food. The difference between the cheapest and most expensive basket was $151.88, with the cost varying considerably across the municipality. “Results indicate that healthy food remains unaffordable for the most-vulnerable communities in Geelong,” the report said. Apart from central Geelong, the disadvantaged northern suburbs had the most takeaway shops per capita and the least fresh food outlets. Almost 44,000 food vouchers and parcels were provided in 2011 and 58,600 free meals served.

Almost all agencies reported that food insecurity was an issue for clients, the report said. “Increasingly, the region’s food systems are becoming unsustainable.” The report advised council to prepare food policy addressing health and sustainability challenges in the region. The report defined food insecurity as limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate, safe foods. Relief agencies faced increasing demand from individuals and families over the past two years due to rising food costs and job retrenchments, the report said.

SUPERMARKETS are offering up to 15 cents a litre off petrol as prices climb above $1.50 in Geelong. Prices have peaked at a five-month high despite the cost of international crude tumbling in recent weeks. RACV spokesperson Michael Case said the discounting cycle had moved from its regular weekly pattern to unpredictable timing. Motorists should monitor the cycle to use vouchers when prices were low, he said. “But don’t wait too long because typically prices can rise by 15 to 20 cents a litre and quite suddenly. You can find yourself paying a lot more for a tank of fuel and this can really hurt motorists, particularly those with family expenses. “In the past it was a very regular weekly cycle with a minimum price on Tuesdays and then a maximum at the weekend but for a long time the cycle’s been progressing, increasing to eight, nine, 10 days.”

THREE-TIME Melbourne Cup winning jockey Glen Boss claimed victory at the 125th Geelong Cup with British-trained stayer Gatewood on Wednesday. The five-year-old equal-favourite raced ahead of the pack in the last 200 metres after trailing rank outsider Back in Black for much of the race. Boss thanked trainer John Gosden for his confidence to have him ride in the race. “I’d like to thank Centrebet for being involved in what is becoming one of the biggest races on the Australian calendar,” Boss said. Marcel Koren accepted the Geelong Cup on behalf on trainer John Gosden. “We were happy with the race. Now we are in the Melbourne Cup so we’re all happy,” he laughed. Geelong Racing Club president Paul Bongiorno said Gatewood put in an “outstanding performance” and was “brilliantly ridden”. “The history books will show that this race was one of the strongest ever. It was a small but elite field,” Bongiorno said. This year’s cup attracted seven runners, down from 13 in 2011 and 10 shy of the race’s 17-runner field limit. Peter Moody-trained Chateau Margaux came in second and equal-favourite Brigantin clinched third place. Before the race the crowd of nearly 18,000 stood for local singer Patty Bourke, who performed the national anthem unaccompanied. Inspector Carl Peers said the police presence at the event was similar to last year following an increase in numbers about two years ago. Melbourne-based officers and mounted police supported local members, he said. “In partnership with Geelong Racing Club’s security we’ve put the message out there that we won’t tolerate anti-social behavior.” Insp Peers thought racegoers were “getting the message”, with most “playing it smart”. “Over the past couple of years I’ve been very pleased with the crowd behavior at the Geelong Cup. Obviously the Geelong Cup is a precursor to the Melbourne Cup, so it attracts a lot of attention.”

Skilled cash ‘legit’ REGIONAL Development Minister Simon Crean has defended his decision to allocate $10 million for Simonds Stadium’s redevelopment over other local projects ranked higher for funding. He also delivered a slap to Nationals Senator Barnaby Joyce for criticising the Regional Development Australia fund. The Independent last week reported that a national audit office report said Mr Crean elevated the stadium over the other projects, including a proposed community services hub in East Geelong. Mr Crean said the audit confirmed the design and implementation of the fund was effective. “The two projects funded in Geelong

When he’s outside Geelong he criticises the Cats for receiving a grant but when he’s in Geelong he says no football club should miss out.” Mr Crean said three recommendations in the report would further enhance the program in future rounds. The recommendations were for the adoption of a numerical rating scale, a clearer value-for-money assessment and improved documentation of the minister’s decisions, he said. “I have asked my department to implement the recommendations in future RDAF

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN UNITS in Corio offer the best investment yields in regional Victoria, according to new figures. RP Data also ranked two other Geelong suburbs in the top 10 for unit yields. Corio’s median price of $155,000 and median rent of $240 a week produced an investment yield of 8.05 per cent, RP Data said. East Geelong was fifth with a price of $232,000 and $280 rent for a 6.28 per cent yield. Norlane was eighth, with $212,000 and $245 for a yield of 6.01 per cent. The figures indicated the suburbs were prime targets for investors, with relatively low purchase prices matched with high returns. The boost for local property prospects was released as Housing Industry Association said land sales were showing recovery signs. The HIA-RP Data Residential Land Report said the latest figures suggested that new housing starts should begin recovering modestly early next year. HIA chief economist Harley Dale said the report showed a significant improvement. “The June quarter saw residential land sales rise by 23.3 per cent to be up by 29.7 per cent when compared to the same period in 2011,” Mr Dale said. He warned that the growth was from a low base and government policy in Victoria and New South Wales exaggerated the result. “Nevertheless, land sales did rise in all six state capitals and in a majority of regional areas and that is an encouraging result.”

$3.3m ‘threat for Lara plan’ A $3.3 MILLION charge for a redundant drainage scheme will make a proposed Lara industrial subdivision unviable, a council hearing panel has heard. L Bisinella Developments corporate affairs manager David Withington told the panel that council had already approved a $400,000 drainage scheme for the subdivision in Heales Rd, Lara. But council now planned to introduce another much more expensive drainage system under a special rate scheme, he said. “On top of the $400,000 already spent, further drainage works would be required on our land to connect to the regional drainage scheme. “Bisinella would be required to contribute $2.8 million to that cost of constructing the regional scheme, so our drainage infrastructure cost would balloon from approximately $400,000 to around $3.3 million, an increase of more than 800 per cent.” Mr Withington said Bisinella would also have to fill in its existing drainage basin at “significant cost”. “Council’s current approach to development of the Heales Rd area is driving up the cost of industrial land and making it harder to attract new industry and jobs,” he told the panel. Mr Withington said Bisinella lost

industrial development opportunities during the past five years because of planning uncertainty. “This is regrettable as Geelong can ill-afford to pass up opportunities to replace jobs being lost in the manufacturing industries.” Mr Withington said council had marketed its own Heales Rd industrial estate but it had yet to create jobs. A City Hall officer had assured Bisinella the area would not be subject to future drainage infrastructure charges, Mr Withington told the panel. “We require a similar assurance before we can proceed with certainty to develop the balance of our 40-hectare estate.” The development panel ruled the issue should go to Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. Geelong Ratepayers and Residents Association president Andrew Senia said City Hall wanted to “have its cake and eat it too”. “How can a developer have any certainty at all with those sorts of rules and regulations,” Mr Senia said. “The City also has to consider whether ther’is a conflict of interest here. Would it waste $400,000 of its own money? “The City has to be careful in regards to rules it makes for itself and for other developers.”

Final touches to $1.35m coast walk A $1.35 MILLION walking track along the Surf Coast’s foreshore will officially open new week, according to the region’s foreshore manager. Great Ocean Road Coast Committee said triple Olympic walking medallist Jared Tallent would help open Surf Coast Walk at 1am on November 4 at Anglesea Visitor Centre. The committee’s coastal projects manager, Mike Bodsworth, urged residents to attend. “Come along and experience some of the wonders of

this incredible walk,” he said. The committee was finishing off the track with interpretive and information signs. Mr Bodsworth said the signs would also act help guide walkers along the route. The 44-kilometre walk is from Point Impossible to Fairhaven. The committee, State Government and Surf Coast Shire funded the project with the support of “partners” including Parks Victoria, Mr Bodsworth said.

Ford losing shine as workers feel the stress

1051560-EP42-12

By NOEL MURPHY FORD is seeking chrome and satin parts from new suppliers after a fire at a Melbourne component maker. Lower grille trims and foglight surrounds on Territory and Falcon models could be affected if the car-maker fails to find alternative supplies. But spokeswoman Sinead Phipps said Ford’s supplies were fine for now, in contrast to Toyota’s loss of a day’s production already following the Venture DMG fire last Friday. “We’re impacted in that we’re a customer but at this

down on an initial 440, to be split about 40:60 between Geelong and Broadmeadows respectively. The cuts will be finalised about the middle of November, with the company cutting daily production from 209 to 148 units across all models. They also coincided with reports of stress among workers anxious about new roles they might have to assume after redundancies are finalised. Ms Phipps acknowledged some staff felt stressed but described it as “a normal human reaction to job cuts”.

stage we have enough parts,” Ms Phipps said. “We’re working with Venture and other suppliers to source parts but at the moment we’re okay.” The Venture chroming facility was unlikely to resume operations for up to two months. Ms Phipps said none of the chrome parts were critical to manufacture and could feasibly be added at a later post-production stage if necessary. The parts strife comes as Ford finalises 330 redundancies across its two Australian plants. Unions expect the cuts,

She said the company had received 120 volunteers for redundancy packages and was continuing to work through the restructure as best it could. Australian Manufacturing Workers Union vehicle division spokesman David Smith said the reduced production should reduce pressure on workers but the process of arranging manning levels could increase anxiety among staff. Ms Phipps said the 148 figure should remain the company’s rate. The company did not anticipate further down days in the foreseeable future, she said.

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, Gheringhap Street entrance, Geelong on Tuesday 13 November commencing at 7.00pm. Details of issues to be considered will be available on the City’s website www.geelongaustralia.com.au

Rollout: Dr Stuart Lucas with the new weed mat.

The meeting is open to the public.

“The mat will encourage much healthier soil, unlike other black polyethylene weed mats, which can remain underground for years. Dr Lucas said the technology could be a major benefit to growers involved with organic and biodynamic production across the horticultural sector as well as manufacturers and suppliers of agricultural and garden products. “In addition to weed mats, this type of fabric may have a number of other end uses which could potentially benefit other industries. “For example, this fabric could be used to create the eco shopping bags of the future, minimising the use of synthetics which reusable shopping bags are currently made from.� Dr Lucas said the weed mat required further trialling to establish broad-acre applications.

A BIODEGRADABLE weed mat developed in Geelong could transform the future of Australia’s agricultural and farming industries, according to CSIRO researchers. Research program leader Dr Stuart Lucas said the mat could replace 60 million square metres of existing plastic weed matting. “The CSIRO biodegradable weed mat could put a stop to nasty weeds,� Dr Lucas said. Made from linseed straw, the CSIRO mat is 100 per cent organic and, unlike the plastic matting, biodegrades completely over a few months. The mat was developed with $170,000 through an Australian Government National Weeds and Productivity Research Program, under the management of Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation. Dr Lucas said the mat could have applications in horticulture, gardens and parks and homes across Australia. “Tests also show that because the linseed material retains moisture, the soil under the mat stays healthy and encourages worm activity.� Dr Lucas said the manufacturing process used high pressure water jets linking the fibres together to form a compact fabric. Other agricultural waste materials such as hemp or banana fibre could also be used, he said. Belmont CSIRO Materials Science and Engineering tests showed the mat was absorbed into the soil. “The mat effectively retains moisture, allows rain to soak into the soil, reduces evaporation and boosts beneficial worm activity,� Dr Lucas said.

Jetset Geelong West Knockback: The Batesford roadhouse outside Geelong.

Picture: Tommy Ritchie 88880

Panel rejects servo’s plans BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A COUNCIL panel has knocked back an application to expand roadhouse facilities at Batesford with a four-unit motel. The operators of Mortimer Petroleum Batesford Roadhouse also wanted to add a car and truck wash and extend the building with features including a kitchen and dining area. The rejected plan showed proposed upgrades and relocation of bowsers and a canopy over the roadhouse’s diesel and LPG area. A panel report said the front section of the 1.6-hectare site had been used as a petrol station for 25 years. Council also received “numerous complaints” about use of the rear section of the site for truck parking. The report said council wrote

to the owners several times to tell them truck parking on the rear section was illegal. The report said council threatened legal proceedings if the rear section continued to be used as a “transport terminal” and if the area remained unfenced. The panel said the operators also faced a council enforcement order over “illegal works”. A City of Greater Geelong spokesperson said the roadhouse owners could appeal to Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT). “If there is no appeal the City will commence enforcement proceedings.” Roadhouse manager Michael Watkins said the application sought to alleviate dangers associated with large trucks that used the site. “It’s getting dangerous with the size of the trucks coming in,”

he said. “We need to get them off the road, especially the B doubles, but there’s nowhere for them to go. “It’s been a big nightmare. This has been going on for years. “All we’re trying to do is change with the times. “When the roadhouse was built it was okay for the size of the trucks then but the trade has changed and we are trying to change with it. “We’re just trying to make it look cleaner and neater and make everyone a bit happier but we keep hitting brick walls. “It’s all one block and we should be able to use it but the council reckons the zoning doesn’t allow it.” Mr Watkins said the matter would “probably” go to VCAT.

WHEN was the last time you saw a milk bottle? If you have a hankering for the age of milkies or other glass specimens of yore, you might well be a candidate for membership of Geelong Bottle and Collectables Club. A good place to start is with the club’s biennial show on Saturday and Sunday at Geelong Showgrounds. This year it doubles as Victorian State Bottle and Collectables Show, with keen glass chasers from all over the state descending on Geelong. Chief bottle washer David Smith said around 100 stallholders would offer collectables at the show. “You can buy, swap, sell, and display items and get valuations by an expert auctioneer,” he declared. “The displays are a walk down memory lane and you will be amazed at their quality and what people collect.” David said collectors with burgeoning assortment of bottles and associated curios and knickknacks could find a solution at the show. “It’s a great way to thin out that crowded collection by booking a stall and making a few dollars. “But then most of us can’t help ourselves - we spend our

Letters Lambs to the slaughter

Gagging on Labor RICHARD Marles advises the Victorian parliament how to do its job, so does Darren Cheeseman. They are so vocal we would be forgiven in thinking there are no ALP Lower House members in Geelong at all when in fact, with the exception of Liberal Member for South Barwon Andrew Katos, all are Labor people. The Liberals barely hold power in the Victorian Government, so they can hardly be called a powerhouse. Why, then, are Ian Trezise, John Eren, and Lisa Neville seemingly afraid to stand up for Geelong? That’s what they were elected for and what they are being paid for - it’s their job. Do they prefer to let state Labor leader Daniel

Andrews and our two federal MPs have all the say or is someone gagging them? Elizabeth Cross Wandana Heights

Election letdown CONGRATULATIONS to City of Greater Geelong customer service/support officers who have provided unfailing courtesy and support to the 1000-plus enquirers over the past weeks leading up to council elections. Their jobs were made doubly hard and stressful by ambiguous, untimely information from Victorian Electoral Commission to eligible voters regarding the absence of ballot papers, unclear information regarding return envelopes and the like. Because of this failure, council has borne additional staffing and financial costs of election advertising, communication and correcting election information, none of which are its job. Our officers, innocent of any wrongdoing, have borne the brunt of uncalled-for abusiveness of people who in their frustration have vented their spleens during phone contacts. Victoria’s municipalities are required to pay in-

dependent organisations such as Victorian Electoral Commission to undertake all related services necessary during the election process. This includes responding to the public, advertising, briefing of candidates, ballot draws, communicating to the public, counting of votes, declaring polls, chasing up and fining those who have not voted. The majority of councils, through Municipal Association of Victoria, appointed Victorian Electoral Commission because it is an independent and impartial statutory authority, established under Victoria’s Electoral Act 2002, to conduct 2012 council elections. The costs are borne by each council, which means ratepayers. In the case of Geelong mayoral and councillor elections, the costs amount to approximately $520,000, a conservative estimate. The community, council and candidates have been let down and deserve better. Cr Barbara Abley Brownbill Ward

THE FAILURE of the live animal export industry was again highlighted when 10,000 Australian sheep were inhumanely slaughtered in Pakistan. The exporter, West Australian based Wellard Rural Exports. reported a loss of control of their supply chain in Pakistan after the sheep were rejected by Bahrain and re-routed to Pakistan. The company had no control over what happened to the sheep and clearly would never endorse cruelty or burying live sheep. The importer of the 21,000 sheep in Bahrain reported they were diseased but the report was questioned. Pathologists in London will help decide the fate of the 11,300 remaining sheep after the high court of Pakistan’s Singh Province ordered further independent tests to confirm whether they were diseased. We cannot prevent cruelty against animals everywhere but to ignore what is happening to Australian animals exported overseas is so very wrong. Live animal exports should be banned because obviously once the animals leave our shores the exporters have no control over the animals’ treatment

and it is ludicrous to think they ever will. It was Ghandi who said: “The greatness of a society and its moral progress can be judged by the way it treats its animals”. How will we as a country be judged? Suzanne Roberts Whittington

Get some British India

1052155-KG43-12

BY CHERIE DONNELLAN WATCHING a melancholic minotaur sing the lyrics of British India’s new single was understandably “bizarre” for lead singer Declan Melia. Melia told the Independent the indie rock quartet loved the video director’s “off the wall” interpretation for I Can Make You Love Me. “Some of the ideas we were presented were more of the same but this one was just so different,” he said. Despite the single receiving widespread radio play and recently featuring as Queenscliff Music Festival’s video of the week, Melia confessed the band was “surprised” it became the debut single for the Melbourne indy band’s fourth album. “I guess it’s got quite a bleak outlook and the song’s slow, so we didn’t really expect it to be the single but almost every time the song that’s become a single has been the one we didn’t expect. “We love the song, though, so we’re glad our fans like it too.” British India will play November’s Queenscliff Music Festival for the first time as part of a national tour. Melia revealed the band members became “extremely nervous” before every show. “You should see us back stage - we do more pacing than the Japanese navy,” he joked. But the nerves drove their performance, Melia said. “I’d be worried if we weren’t nervous.” He reminisced about British India’s early days, describing the members were just “four idiots from Mentone”. The group was now like a “well-oiled machine”. “When we first started, we just jumped right in because we wanted to play music. “We didn’t expect to get to this level, but we’re rapt we have.”

GOOD FOLK... The Audreys in action.

74

Folk a Breez for Audreys by Cherie Donnellan CELEBRATING community spirit is why The Audreys’ lead singer Taasha Coates loves playing folk music. So performing at Breez Music Festival to support multiple sclerosis sufferers was an offer Coates couldn’t turn down. The young mum told the Independent she fortunately had no personal experience of MS but sympathised with sufferer Bree-Arne Chamley, a fellow singer. “To have something you love affected by a disease that attacks your motor skills, something singers rely on, is heartbreaking,” Coates said. Chamley will also perform during the November 4 festival at Geelong’s The Pier. The event will raise money for Geelong community services organisation Karingal to build its Melaluka residential respite and day support facility. Coates was looking forward to supporting Chamley and hearing other acts on the bill, including The Go Set, The Human Electric, Nick Barker and Sweet Delores. “Going to festivals is something I really like and it’s the rare time we (the band) actually get to see other bands. “Sometimes when you’re spending

a lot of time on the road it’s hard to motivate yourself to see another band. “It can feel like work but when I have the time off I love it.” Coates admitted that touring with partner Todd Bennett and Finley earlier this year was “very un-rock” but she still enjoyed the experience. “(Todd’s) a part-time musician so he helped us with the stage tech stuff, and he even sold merchandise as well as being a dad. “He’s a graphic designer and he did the artwork for our last album cover, so actually he was really handy to have on tour,” Coates laughed. She reminisced about 14-monthold son Finley doing a “really hilarious bum dance” when he attended gigs with her. “He’s adorable. I love being a mum.” Coates remained tight-lipped about the ideas she and Tristan Goddall had for their planned fourth album. But wanted to record “somewhere low key, like the beach”. “We’re recording in January, so if we were near the beach in the height of summer it would be great to have those summery feelings creep onto the record. “You can’t record an album without bringing the ambience of where you recorded into it but they’re all just ideas at this stage.”

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

Scanner boosts eye care GEELONG, Bellarine Peninsula and Surf Coast residents now have access to worldleading eye care technology thanks to an exclusive new Optos Ultra-Wide retinal scanner at OPSM Waurn Ponds. A$20 million agreement between OPSM and UKbased Optos PLC for the innovative, sight-saving Optos Daytona device is the first of its kind in the world and represents the biggest investment in eye care in the 80-year history of the OPSM brand. The result is a high-resolution, high-contrast comprehensive 200-degree view, capturing up to 82 per cent of the retina in one image. By comparison, traditional retinal exams only allow the inspection of a small portion of the retina at a time. For example, conventional retinal cameras allow only a 45-degree view, less than a quarter of that offered by the Optos. OPSM Waurn Ponds ophthalmologist Rowan Prendergast says the high-resolution digital images are securely stored for later comparison and can also be shared with other providers, such as GPs or ophthalmologists. “OPSM continues to make every effort to raise the eye care standard in the Geelong region,” Mr Prendergast says. “The Optos digital retinal scanner offers a vastly wider

image than has previously been available from standard retinal cameras and provides the most effective way for me to thoroughly examine my patients’ eyes to detect eye disease. “Early detection, in many cases, means management and prevention of long-term issues. “I highly recommend this technology to those who have diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or a family history of eye disease such as macular degeneration or glaucoma.” Research conducted by OPSM found an estimated 2 million Australians aged between 18 and 44 have either never had their eyes tested or have failed to get them tested in the past five years. “It’s never too early for people to have their eyes checked,” Mr Prendergast says. “The key is to detect eye conditions as early as possible, especially when 80 per cent of blindness is preventable.” The exclusive technology is available at OPSM Waurn Ponds. Books are available online at www.opsm.com.au or by phoning 5243 9288. More information is available by phoning Mr Prendergast at OPSM Waurn Ponds on 5243 9288 or emailing him on rowan.prendergast@ opsm.com.au

WHEN the Kia Carnival people mover was launched in Australia in September 1999 with a price tag significantly below that of similarly-sized vehicles from Toyota, Honda and Chrysler it immediately took off in the sales race. It has since frequently sat at number one spot in the people mover category. That original Carnival was obviously built down to a price, but the South Koreans are experts at getting a lot out of their vehicles for a modest design budget. It also had some wellpublicised problems mainly with cylinder head gasket failures in the small 2.5-litre V6 engine but Kia repaired most defective engines under warranty, even when vehicles were technically beyond the warranty period. The Kia Grand Carnival was added to the range in January 2006 with a 3.8-litre V6 that provided a fair bit more performance than the smaller sixes, even though the vehicle was larger and heavier than the Carnival. The two vehicles sold alongside each other until early 2011 when the smaller Carnival was eventually discontinued. At the same time Grand Carnival was given a major revamp, with new features, more power and the introduction of a fuel efficient sixspeed automatic transmission in every variant. Those looking for an entry level price can now buy a 2012 model year Grand Carnival S for $38,990. This model will have the 3.5-litre V6 engine in place of the 2.7-litre unit used in the smaller and lighter Carnival S. As it’s operating at the lower-cost end of the market, there’s no turbo-diesel option in the Grand Carnival S. A diesel engine is also available. A new four-cylinder Kia design that produces 143 kW of power and a huge 429 Newton metres of torque it gives the fully loaded Grand Carnival real grunt when climbing steep hills, all the more so with the extra ratio being offered in the auto. Petrol power continues to be offered on all models, and the 3.5-litre puts out a silky 202 kilowatts of power. Feature upgrades see the Grand Carnival getting Bluetooth connectivity, and audio controls on the steering wheel.

49 YEARS CONTINUOUS TRADING IN GEELONG : RACV

1051914-KS43-12

By ERIC BLAIR

Grand Carnival Si now comes with alloy wheels, roof rails and rearseat controls for the air conditioning. These features are also installed on the Grand Carnival SLi and the topline Platinum. Kia Grand Carnival people mover is a large vehicle with lots of space inside. There’s seating for eight adults, two in front bucket seats; three in the second row, each in their own bucket seat; and a further three in a bench seat at the rear. All the seats have good legroom and are of a reasonable width, although passengers in the rearmost seats will find themselves sitting with their knees up as the floor is rather high. Access to the rearmost seats isn’t too difficult for the young and agile, but others may find it a hassle. Luggage space is excellent, even with all the seats in use and the boot is very deep, partly because of the location of a small temporary spare tyre underneath the vehicle, at the rightcentre of the cabin floor. A full sized flat tyre can’t be stored in that area, but Kia supplies a plastic bag in which to store the flat. When you are not using the rear seats of the Grand Carnival they fold down into that deep recess in the base of the boot, leaving a neat flat floor. The three seats in the centre row double-fold forwards to further increase load space and can even be removed completely to create even more room. The sheer length of the Grand Carnival can cause problems when parking at the kerb-side, but isn’t likely to be a problem in off-street carparks that have sufficient length. Height is seldom a problem as the Kia Grand Carnival is lower than most 4WDs. Ride comfort in the big Kia is good on most road surfaces, but big bumps and corrugations do trouble it at times. Handling at slow to moderate speeds is fine but at anything higher it verges on being sloppy. Strong understeer scrubs off speed and puts the Grand Carnival back on line if you are over ambitious when cornering. The Grand Carnival tops the people mover sales tree in Australia, with more than one in three of new people movers sold here being from Kia.

IndySport Indy Sport Cats seek horror story end GEELONG Cricket Club has slipped to 16th on the Victorian Premier League ladder following a horror weekend when the Cats lost both one-day games in ugly fashion. On Saturday the Cats had Richmond on the ropes at 8/86 thanks mainly to spin twins Luke Muller, 4/19, and Jacob Thorne, 3/13. But unfortunately the Tigers tail wagged, helping them reach a competitive 124 on a tough wicket for batting. The Cats started brightly in reply, reaching 2/73 on the back of a fine knock by skipper Meyrick Buchanan, 47, with support from James Crosthwaite, 27. But from there things went pear shaped as the rest of the order crumbled to be all out for 118, just six runs short of their target. On Sunday at home against CaseySouth Melbourne Geelong again started well, batting first. Buchanan, 42, led the way again but only Thorne, 21, and Muller, 22, were

Local

cricket Jim Timberlake

able to give any help. The side was eventually dismissed for 146. Unlike on Saturday, the Cats bowlers struggled to have an impact early as the visitors cruised to a six-wicket win. Tomorrow sees the start of the twoday fixtures, with Geelong travelling to Windy Hill to take on Essendon. Geelong coach Damian Shanahan will hope the longer format gives his team a chance to knuckle down and find some form. In Geelong Cricket Association an early season top-of-the-table clash between South Barwon and East Belmont looks like being a tasty encounter.

Both teams have been in the runs early, with Clinton Peake scoring a massive 167 not-out last game against St Joseph’s, while Andrew Ross, 80, and Jacob Waterson, 59, have found early season touch. And for the Lions, import John Kettle and skipper Chris Bambury both have half centuries chalked up already, while Shaun Hooley looked settled last week. It seems the team that bowls well will gain the upper hand. The Lions will welcome back Dave Lineen from a groin complaint, while Phil Halbish and Joel Davies lead an impressive Swans bowling line-up. This extra bowling depth should see South Barwon take the points. Other selections: HIGHTON v Leopold, Bell Post Hill v NORTH GEELONG, Geelong City v NEWTOWN & CHILWELL, GROVEDALE v Geelong West. Modewarre has jumped out of the blocks to remain undefeated in division

two so far. New coach Michael Brown has brought a wealth of experience to the newly promoted club as it adjusts to life on turf wickets. This week it hosts powerhouse St Albans Breakwater, which bounced back smartly from a first-round loss to Waurn Ponds with a six-wicket victory against Torquay. The key members of the Modewarre top order in Jack Hosking, Tim McFarlane and Shane Dillon will be keen to test their skills against the star-studded Saints bowling line-up of Justin Miller, Jason Murray and Chris Jones. Modewarre will put up a good fight but St Albans Breakwater will prove too strong. Other selections: ST PETER’S v Guild St Mary’s, Torquay v MANIFOLD HEIGHTS, Waurn Ponds v MURGHEBOLUC, Marshall v NEWCOMB & DISTRICT, THOMSON v Alexander Thomson. Division three has started in its usual

blaze of glory, with a trio of outright results already last week. This season more than ever, all teams wanting to participate in the finals will need to be at the top of their game every single week because each point could be crucial come season’s end. This week Meredith and Winchelsea, both traditionally strong at this level, face off in an early season encounter that could go a long way towards telling us who has genuine claims to early favouritism. Ty Watts starred for Meredith last week with a massive 130, while for Winchelsea Matthew Partridge top scored with 46 and chimed in with two wickets. Meredith looks like having the depth to get the win in this one. Other selections: Little River v LETHBRIDGE, North Shore v TEESDALE, Bell Park v SHELFORD, Bannockburn v Inverleigh, Corio Bye.

Hardy and patient find snapper, whiting during quiet time On the

bite Brian Long

WINDY weather kept many anglers on shore over the past week but counterparts who braved the elements returned with respectable catches. Snapper captures were down, with the best reports coming from anglers who fished an hour or so either side of sunset. Paul Hammer’s tally between 7pm and 8.30pm Saturday was three fish around 3kg each and caught on pilchard. Another angler nearby also caught fish around the same time, returning with three, the largest estimated to be over 6kg. Glenn Welsh found protection from the wind between the North Shore rocks and the channel where he caught two snapper of 3.8kg and 4.3kg on fresh squid strips. Patience paid off for Ballarat’s Daniel Nestor who fished Wilson Spit for six hours until he boated a magnificent 82cm snapper. Damian Knowles worked soft plastics over the Stingaree Bay spoil grounds to find reasonable numbers of quality flathead along with a few pike and small snapper. However, all changed at 6.30pm when his rod folded with what turned out to be a 4.7kg snapper. Anglers also chased salmon and pike on the bay, with casting and trolling small lures a viable option.

KING FOR A DAY... Richard Caldararo with a 35kg kingfish in New Zealand. Salmon were working both Stingaree Bay and near Alcoa Pier, with the surface activity generally given them away. Pike were available on the inshore grass beds at present and, for land-based anglers, on the rocks at North Shore. Good numbers of squid were taken from the grass beds off Hermsley. Most were small but bag-limit captures were common, with the bigger squid between St Leonards and Queenscliff. Whiting captures were down, with milky coloured water requiring many moves to find fish. The average size was 33cm to 35cm, with fresh squid the

snapper and gummy shark from beaches and rocks. The best snapper reports were from Black Rock at the Breamlea end, while a few big gummy shark were caught at Roadknight on fresh bait. Offshore winds and clean water produced reasonable numbers of salmon to 1.5kg further down the coast, with lure the best method on the deeper water rock platforms. The Barwon River in Geelong hosted plenty. Harrison Phillips fished along the rowing course with corn and bread baits to grass 16 carp to more than 6kg in two outings.

stand-out bait. Werribee’s Mario Caldwell fished the shore at Point Lillias where he found the flathead well and truly on the bite in the rough conditions He returned with a bag of 16, the biggest a beauty of 1.4kg. Daniel Shorten also found quality flathead while drifting between Bird Rock and the quarries. He caught plenty of fish to 58cm on blue and whitebait. Trevally were caught in the cut at Queenscliff, with the slack water around high tide best. Soft plastics accounted for the best captures. Surf anglers began catching more

Harrison advised anyone targeting catch carp to use plenty of berley. Gordon Farnsworth fished the running water at Buckley Falls for two nice trout on small Rapala lures. Working the running water, Gordon caught quite a few fish bit most were small. Shaun Dennis spun the junction of both the Leigh and Barwon rivers, landing a few redfin. Most were small but one reddie was 955g. Lake Tooliorook remained the best option for trout and redfin. Trolling Tassie Devils has worked on the trout, while vibe-style lures have caught redfin in the open sections of the lake. Shore anglers should use Powerbait in the orange colour. Anglers should keep an eye on Wurdee Buloc Reservoir. While far from red hot, it has produced some quality trout over 2kg on lures and worms. Richard Caldararo lived the dream recently in Tauranga, New Zealand, landing an awesome 35kg kingfish on a knife jig. Dragging the fish up from around 90m was a mammoth task but one Richard will never forget. Corio Bay should remain a great option this weekend for lure enthusiasts, with salmon and pike in good numbers around Alcoa Pier or out in front of the grammar school lagoon on the early-afternoon high tides. Freshwater anglers wanting a big trout could fish Deep Lake on lure through the middle part of the day.
