Bore damage ‘fears’ BY ERIN PEARSON A LAND Care group has called on Barwon Water to stop tapping an Anglesea borefield. Land and Water Resources in the Otway Catchments vice-president Malcolm Gardiner said the long-term sustainability of the groundwater source was unknown. He warned that over-extraction could threaten the livelihood of Surf Coast communities.

Mr Gardiner said the region would suffer similar damage to the Gellibrand area where creeks had “run dry” from pumping groundwater. “When you put the fact Alcoa is extracting water out there you’ve got a double whammy. “When the peat dries out it oxidises and produces acid, which goes though the soil and releases heavy metals. It kills animals and fish stone dead. “In our area we’re even seeing

the water eat away at cement pylons over creeks. “Barwon Water extracting the water they are now could be the last straw for your area.” In October last year the Victorian Auditor General said Department of Sustainability and Environment and water corporations could not be sure whether harvesting groundwater was sustainable. The report said data gaps and uncertainty about groundwater

quality meant the department and water corporations could not effectively monitor, plan or manage Victoria’s groundwater resources. Barwon Water was granted a bulk entitlement in June 2009 to extract an average seven gigalitres a year from the Anglesea borefield. The authority said the project was fast-tracked to boost Geelong’s supplies during the drought.

The borefield, with six of seven planned bores constructed, was now operating at a reduced rate because “triggers were approached more quickly than expected”. Barwon Water managing director Michael Malouf said waterways in the borefield area were unaffected. Barwon Water would conduct further testing at Anglesea to determine the long-term sustainability of its groundwater use, Mr

Malouf said. “It will not only tell us the sustainable level of extraction but it will assist in protecting the area’s environmental values and the health of groundwater dependent ecosystems. “It will give us a thorough understanding of how the resource can be best managed.” Water Minister Peter Walsh has given the corporation until August 2013 to assess the aquifer’s “sustainable yield”.

Leijer hoped Beckham’s visit would spur more children on to playing soccer. “It was quite exciting because he’s someone who people all around the world know.

whole life, so I’ve grown up watching David play and now I’m on the same path.” Leijer moved to Jan Juc as a teenager, attending Belmont High School before joining A-league team Melbourne Victory. “Growing up I had all these aspirations but it’s more difficult for kids in the country to make that break, particularly in our game because it’s more a

city-orientated sport. You’ve just got to work very hard at it.” Surf Coast Football Club president Joe Taylor said the club’s 350 members were “extremely proud” of their patron. “We hope that one day when he’s finished his career with Melbourne Victory he’ll come down and put on the Surf Coast guernsey.”

‘Get permits’, track ordered BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN EXTENSIVE building and track works at McAdam Park motorcycle complex were illegally developed without planning permits, Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal has ruled. Barrabool Rural Protection Group spokesperson Paul Morgan said the ruling was an important victory in the group’s battle against further development of the complex. “VCAT ruled that a significant number of building and other works done on the site had been done without planning permits,” Mr Morgan said. “VCAT found that planning permits were required, which makes the works unlawful.” Mr Morgan said Surf Coast Shire council would have to initiate a planning permit process,

enabling residents to object. “It puts in place a process where we can discuss amenity issues and have some controls imposed under a renewed planning process,” Mr Morgan said. “The ruling confirms you cannot just build motocross tracks and make substantial changes without planning permits. “We’ll seek legal advice on the next steps but Motorcycling Australia will have to apply for planning permits for what has been done so far. “As part of that process we can talk about amenity, noise and controls on the operations of McAdam Park.” Mr Morgan expected the process to include “careful analysis” of the noise impact on the surrounding community. He said the process would enable resident to argue for limita-

tions and guidelines on what was allowed on the site. “At least we won’t have unbridled growth. We don’t want to shut McAdam Park down but we do want proper processes in place.” Mr Morgan said VCAT also ruled that existing use rights only applied to two of three lots comprising the 120-hectare property. “It was never clear what existing use rights there were and this has clarified the question.” Mr Morgan said his group had experienced significant difficulties in obtaining information about the complex. “I hope the communications process improves from this point on.” A recorded message on McAdam Park’s information line said Motorcycling Australia had directed that the facility would be closed until March 1.

‘Tool time’ for thieves targeting local tradies

in brief

BY ERIN PEARSON A SPATE of tool thefts across the region is a warning for tradesmen to mark their property for identification, according to Geelong police. Crime prevention officer Leading Senior Constable Adrian Goodwin said the thefts were costing individual tradesmen thousands of dollars in lost property and time. Thieves were taking tools from houses under construction, garages and secure vehicles, he said. “There’s a market out there for these products because they have a high resale value. Tools that cost $650 brand new will sell for $350 pretty quickly and they’re hard to track.” Sen Const Goodwin said the thieves were selling the tools to unwitting buyers in various ways such as online. He urged tradesmen to be vigilant and mark tools with their names or licence number so police could identify stolen property. “There’s really not enough property marking going on and it’s so easy to do these days and cheap for tradies,” he said. “People can use ultraviolet pens or engrave licence numbers into tools or even spray tools with chemical substances that have a unique code. “There are so many products available these days.” Sen Const Goodwin said a lack of regulations enforcing fencing around Geelong building sites made them easy targets. “In Melbourne sites have to be secured but here builders don’t really have to, making it easier for burglars to access, especially this time of year.” Victoria Police Safer Communities Acting Sergeant Noel Redmond said property owners could take “proactive steps” to improve household security against theft. Sgt Redmond said the key was making vacant homes look occupied. “We each have a role to play when it comes to making our homes and workplaces safer. The simple rule is that if a home looks unattended it’s generally an easier target for a burglar.”

UNEMPLOYMENT fell more than two per cent in the region over the 12 months to the end of June, according to new figures. City of Greater Geelong’s economic indicators bulletin showed the jobless rate down to 4.1 per cent in the Barwon Western District area compared to 6.1 per cent the same time the previous year.

Collapse fine A HOUSE falling on a Geelong restumping company owner while work was underway has cost his business a $40,000 fine, according to Work Safe Victoria. The workplace safety watchdog said Vollebregt House Restumping was also convicted over the “incident”, in which the victim was seriously injured.

Jobless fall

ICT boost STATE Government has announced a $100,000 funding boost for a Geelong industry “cluster” working on developments in IT and communications equipment. Technology Minister Gordon Rich-Phillips said the money would help ICT Geelong “built on past achievements and assist the continuing development” of the industry sector in the region over the next two years.

Mr Mulder said the $125 million stage 4A over the Princes Hwy at Waurn Ponds meant motorists could now travel 100km between Melbourne and Anglesea without encountering a traffic light.

Thieves walk with fundraiser’s livelihood BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG’S “long walk” charity fundraiser has become the latest victim of heartless thieves who stole the tools of his trade. John Olsen, who has walked Australia from west to east and north to south, is $3000 out of pocket after the theft. Mr Olsen said he left his work van in a locked shed fitted with security lighting at Newcomb. “Last Monday they smashed a win-

dow, broke into my van and took all my tools and my trailer,” Mr Olsen said. “They didn’t even leave me with a hammer to hit myself on the head.” Mr Olsen said he used the lifetime’s collection of tools in his kitchen and bathroom renovation business, Heritage Creations. “I’ll be discovering for months exactly what has gone. All the bits add up but they’re pretty much useless to anyone except me.” Mr Olsen appeared on the

2010/2011Geelong-Colac telephone directory cover as part of Sensis’s Courageous Australians series. He covered more than 12,000 kilometres in 400 days on his two epic walks, raising $140,000 for Australian Leukodystrophy Support Group. The self-effacing Mr Olsen said his tools were replaceable. “No one got killed, so I just grin and bear it. “I don’t make a lot of money but I do make a lot of friends.”

Anyone with information could phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or the family on 0478 661 092, she said.

be hoping for more positions to be created.â&#x20AC;? Ms Lovell said New Norlane was one of Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest ever public and private housing projects. The project would build 160 social and 160 private homes during the next four years. The former Victorian Housing Commission built Norlane Estate over 10 years from 1948. Ms Lovell said the project included the construction of a display village at Norlaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s former Yooringa Ave flats. The outcome of the tender would be known by â&#x20AC;&#x153;early 2012â&#x20AC;?, she said.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG builders have welcomed an $80 million housing project at Norlane as a boost for the industry at the right time. Hamlan and Denis Family Homes are set to complete the first 14 homes in the 320-home project by Christmas. Victorian Housing Minister Wendy Lovell handed over the first two homes to new tenants earlier this month. Tenders had opened to build the next 256 homes, she said. Hamlan Homes director Brian Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell said the New Norlane project was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;significant shot in the armâ&#x20AC;? for Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s building and construction industry and the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s economy in general. He confirmed his company had submitted a tender for the next round of building. Mr Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell said the projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s training and apprenticeship scheme, requiring project builders to offer trainee and apprenticeships to local applicants, was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;good initiativeâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be using local trades and apprentices if we were successful,â&#x20AC;? Mr Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell said. Mr Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell said his company had previously been involved in home construction in Norlane as part of a Federal Government nation building program. City of Greater Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest annual economic indicators bulletin reported a 1.2 per cent decrease in building activity, from $1.3 billion to $1.2 billion. New dwellings work was down 5.2 per cent, with a total 2793 approvals last financial year.

CORRECTIVE NOTICE

A correction from Harvey Norman 3D TVs

Between 3 and 19 September 2010, Harvey Norman Holdings Limited caused the publishing of the “3D Finals Fever” catalogue in metropolitan and regional areas in all States and Territories throughout Australia and on its website at www.harveynorman.com.au. The catalogue featured a number of 3D televisions beside the statement “Watch the Grand Finals in HD and 3D with this TV” to encourage consumers to buy a 3D television from a Harvey Norman franchise store to watch the AFL grand final on 25 September 2010 or the NRL grand final on 3 October 2010 in 3D format. However, Harvey Norman Holdings Limited caused the 3D Finals Fever catalogue to be distributed in places where the grand finals were not to be broadcast in 3D. The grand finals were only able to be viewed in 3D in metropolitan areas in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney, Newcastle, Brisbane and Perth. The catalogue did not disclose this. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (the ACCC) considers that the 3D Finals Fever catalogue created the false or misleading impression that consumers would be able to use a 3D television to watch the grand finals in 3D in all places where the catalogue was distributed, when this was not true. The ACCC is concerned that consumers outside of the limited 3D broadcast area may have been misled into purchasing a 3D television from a Harvey Norman franchise store to watch the grand finals, when the 3D televisions could not be used for this purpose in their geographic area. In response to the ACCC’s concerns, Harvey Norman Holdings Limited acknowledges that the catalogue was likely to mislead consumers and has consented to the Federal Court of Australia making declarations that its content breached the Trade Practices Act 1974 (now the Competition and Consumer Act 2010). Harvey Norman Holdings Limited has also agreed to injunctions restraining it from engaging in similar conduct again. The Federal Court has ordered that Harvey Norman Holdings Limited pay civil pecuniary penalties of $500,000 in respect of this conduct.

220460

Harvey Norman Holdings Limited would like to apologise for any confusion and inconvenience caused to consumers. Any consumers who believe they have been misled by the advertisements should contact John Slack-Smith on (02) 9201 6111.

Vines Rd ‘model for projects’ A SHARED Western Heights College and community redevelopment could become a blueprint for other areas, according to Geelong Mayor John Mitchell. Cr Mitchell and Education Minister Martin Dixon officially opened the $27 million project at Hamlyn Heights last Friday. “The Vines Rd model of shared school and community facilities is the way ahead,” Cr Mitchell said. “This redevelopment rewrites the manual on the provision of education and community facilities. It’s all about partnership.” The redevelopment combines the college with other facilities including a community centre, a senior citizens club and recreational facilities. State Government funding the school component while council contributed $4.2 million to the community facilities.

Local rebates left unclaimed BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN THE REGION’S households are missing out on “thousands of dollars” in energy rebates, according to an environmental services company. Ecovantage’s Nathan O’Halloran said local businesses offering the rebates were trying to let residents know. “Most people we’ve spoken to around Geelong don’t even know these rebates are available,” Mr O’Halloran said. “In some cases people have already upgraded their home heating to gas, hot water to gas/solar or their TV to LED without even knowing they could claim anything back. Mr O’Halloran said the rebates were available through a Victorian Energy Efficiency Target, part of

State Government’s efforts to reign in carbon emissions. Mr O’Halloran said the January 30 deadline meant energy companies had limited time to create certificates as part of the scheme. “The value of the rebates to households is set for a roller coaster ride over the coming months,” he said. “Financial penalties will apply to energy retailers for targets not met under the scheme. Because of this, there’s a temporary boom in demand for the certificates, increasing their value to a record high.” Households would “likely see a substantial drop” in rebate value after January 30. “The high level of rebates means that in some cases households have received back 100 per cent of the cost of heater upgrades

back through the scheme. Connectair’s Peter Dear said local businesses were carrying out the work, assisting the region’s economy. “The price varies by area but in Geelong the rebate can be over $7000 for an upgrade from electric floor heat to gas home heating. “It can be more than $2000 for changing electric hot water to gas boosted solar, $1530 to change electric hot water to gas instantaneous, $1496 to change electric hot water to gas hot water and $1530 for electric hot water to electric boosted solar.” Mr O’Halloran said households with completed upgrades could still be eligible for rebates. Barwon Solar and Middleton’s Heating and Cooling were also involved in the scheme, he said.

Local women’s tales of desperation and triumph in new book

Our Cross to bear the next 40 years. “The one time that stands out the most was when we set up a food kitchen in the early 1990s after the fall of Pyramid,” Ms Goss remembered. “We realised people were really hurting and very quickly we put together a midday meal service at our centre then in Bellerine St opposite the hospital. “People were willing to do anything to help, even peel potatoes. We’d never seen them before.” Ms Gross believed the extensive training required to join Red Cross was deterring new

members. But the effort was worthwhile, she advised. “I recently took a person shopping to Kmart who’d suffered through a house fire. They were very stressed out but when they realised we could help get them clothes, toiletries and bedding they were just so happy. “You see it in people’s faces. They leave as different people from when they come in.” Ms Gross joined Red Cross in 1970, helping establish the Grovedale unit seven years later. Red Cross member and book

editor Dorothy O’Donnell said the stories provided an insight into the lives of ordinary Australians during some of the most significant events of the past century. “The valiant women found time for Red Cross in addition to workforce participation, raising families and involvement in various other community activities,” she said. The book, Quiet Achievers, Cameos of Red Cross Commitment, is a collection of the 20 women’s first-hand accounts of their experiences with the organisation.

BY ERIN PEARSON SHE started out helping educate children about Red Cross more than 40 years ago. Now Grovedale’s Lorraine Gross has her many stories etched into the pages of a book celebrating 20 women who helped shape the history of Red Cross and the history of Geelong. Ms Gross said the willingness of Geelong people to help others in need was heartwarming. She hoped the goodwill would continue into and beyond

“We will use it for our commercial waste collections from businesses in the region. It’s a primary resource recovery facility, so there’ll be an initial sorting of waste, concrete, timber and recyclables.” Mr Lee said the company faced increased cartage costs because it might still use Drysdale’s landfill for some material from eastern and southern suburbs. Material unable to be recycled at Lara would have to be transported to the Werribee landfill, he said. Corio Waste Management’s Ken Dickens warned the changes would increase costs considerably. “We’ll face significantly increased cartage costs, especially if we have to take longer alternative routes to the Drysdale landfill. “Corio would take material that

they are reluctant to take at Drysdale, so we’re desperately trying to find another place for it. “There must be concern at materials like odorous waste going through Drysdale, especially at the height of summer with the town full of holidaymakers. City of Greater Geelong services manager Gary van Driel said rehabilitating the 70-hectare Corio landfill would cost up to $23 million. Mr Van Driel said the City planned to open a transfer station at a leased facility on Point Henry Rd, Moolap. Current contractor Cleanaway would deposit waste collections at the transfer station. Mr Van Driel said the adjustments to the existing contract would cost the City an extra $400,000.

Bar bashing knocks out victim A MAN bashed unconscious with a metal bar in Geelong had seven stitches applied to a “large laceration” on his head, according to police. Geelong detectives have appleaed for information over the alleged assault on the 27year-old Clifton Springs man in the early hours of November 27. Police said three men apparently aged 18 to 20 attacked him under James Harrison Bridge as he walked toward Belmont. One was armed with the bar and another claimed to have a firearm.

Police said the group hit the alleged victim over the head and body, with the attack also requiring a further three stitches to an arm. The man also suffered “severe bruising to his face, forearms and upper body”. Police said the man regained consciousness to discover his wallet and iPhone were stolen. He sought help at a nearby supermarket where staff called an ambulance. Police asked anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A COUNCIL plan to close Corio’s tip will increase costs for garbage collectors, according to waste management companies. Council will also lose one of its top 10 commercial customers, Sita Environmental Services, the company has confirmed. Marketing manager Simon Lee said Sita last week opened its own resource recovery facility in Heales Rd, Lara. “This is only the first stage of the facility but it has the capacity to go up to 130,000 tonnes per annum,” Mr Lee said. “We’ll be investing several million dollars in this facility in the coming years. “This facility is available to both residential and commercial customers.

In conjunction with Osborne Park Association, the exhibition includes a small part of the society’s extensive collection. The display includes 300-yearold crockery, bygone fashions, photographs, shields and historical equipment like a Geelong telephone exchange desk complete with its rows of patch cords. “We often have material donated, even from far flung former Geelong families who discover a little stockpile of information,” Freda said. “Members do two trips a year to historic places of interest.” Freda believed one of the society’s strengths was its array of publications. The society’s Investigator quarterly publication was highly regarded, mailed to interested par-

ties all over the world including New York’s state library. Husband Rob said the society embraced modern technology in its battle with storage space problems. “History is easier to record today and we have to use technology to try overcoming our storage issues.” The society often had more than 50 members at its regular meetings from 8pm on the first Wednesday of the month, except January, in the heritage centre’s Morrow Theatrette. “Shipping and gold are two of the most popular topics,” Rob chuckled. He said more information was available at the society’s website, geelonghs.org.au.

A GROUP of people in Geelong is busy making their own history and preserving ours in the process. As soon as history is made in the city, Geelong Historical Society members are busy recording it for posterity. The society has become part of Geelong’s history as well, dating back to 1944. Secretary Freda Craddock said the society aimed to “keep history up to date and alive”. “We all have a passion for history and we are keen to promote the history of Geelong,” she said. “People forget but recorded history preserves.” The society has an impressive 400 plus members including an array of talented historians, both professional and amateur. Freda said the society worked closely with Geelong Heritage Centre, Victoria’s largest regional archive. Most of the society’s wideranging information was kept at the heritage centre, holding around 1.8km of public and private records extensively described in catalogues and indexes. The records of local government, businesses, clubs, societies, churches and individuals are available to school groups, family historians, writers and researchers. Occasionally the society has an opportunity to display some of its museum pieces, such as its current exhibition at Osborne House.

buckets & bouquets BOUQUETS to the staff and volunteers at Lara Primary School for their hard work and commitment to our students and school community in 2011. Your efforts are acknowledged and greatly appreciated. School Council, Lara

BUCKETS to a store manager. While I was at the checkout recently, the manager yelled to a couple walking out that they were no longer welcome and not to come back. What kind of managers are we hiring these days. Disgruntled Shopper, Corio

BOUQUETS to a taxi driver who drove me home on November 25 after I lost my car keys near ADLI Newcomb. The driver put my groceries inside for me and turned off the meter for 20 minutes while I changed then drove me back to Geelong. Stressed Wendy, Ocean Grove

Buckets to two cyclists who yelled “Close your door”. When I told them I was getting my young son out of our car for school the female cyclist stuck up her middle finger at me. If they want respect on the road they should show it to others. No Respect, Highton

BOUQUETS to Ralph and his staff at Dick Smith Electronics Waurn Ponds. Ralph gave excellent service when I wanted to buy a small television set as a gift. Why shop on-line when you can get such a great deal and helpful advice from someone willing to go the extra mile. Wendy, Grovedale

BOUQUETS to The Acabellas for playing guitar and singing for us during a St John of God volunteers luncheon at Barwon Edge. The band had lots of heart and plenty of soul. I was really moved. Blowin’ In The Wind, Corio

BUCKETS to a Belmont store where we found a special present. The store wanted us to buy a display item that had to be cleaned for the same price. Wouldn’t that make it second-hand? Never To Return, Geelong BOUQUETS to a kind lady who helped me to the doctor then followed me in my car to make sure I got home okay after a fall in Drysdale on November 28. I hope her husband has recovered from the injuries he received when a magpie swooped and attacked him. Broken Glasses, Drysdale BUCKETS to Geelong’s council for Ocean Grove football and cricket clubs’ disgraceful change rooms. The showers are faulty, there are no toilets and the rooms are too small for seniors and seconds to be inside together. The netball facilities are even worse. Bob, Ocean Grove

BOUQUETS to ambo drivers Craig and Lee for rescuing my children and I from a shopping trolley and sign we stood on as two stray pit bulls surrounded us. Lindy, East Geelong

BOUQUETS to Mish and Kylie at The Salvos for being so nice and understanding. Dee Jay, Belmont BOUQUETS to the kind and honest person who took the trouble to hand in my spectacles at Geelong Hospital on November 25. I was spared the inconvenience and expense of organising a new pair, so I really appreciated the kindness. Maggie, Ocean Grove

BOUQUETS to everyone who helped when my baby was locked in my car at Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre on December 8, especially the two lovely ladies who stayed with me and lent me their phones, the fire brigade, paramedics and police. You are all unsung heroes. Now Holding Onto Keys, Grovedale

BOUQUETS to Release Property Management, the only real estate agent to return my calls, ask me what I needed and picked up the phone to tell me about a property I might like even before it had been advertised. Buckets to everyone else. Allison, Lara

BUCKETS to a photographer who discriminates against clients by posting almost all family shoots as advertising material on a social media network. Not Pretty Enough, Hamlyn Heights

ten.

BOUQUETS to the good Samaritans who helped at an accident at a Drysdale roundabout on December 9. An off-duty paramedic, nurses and other drivers helped an injured lady and diverted traffic until paramedics and police arrived. Best wishes also to both ladies involved for speedy recoveries from injuries and trauma. Leesa Maree, Clifton Springs

BOUQUETS to DJ Mitch for making Heartkids’ Christmas party such a success. Your generosity will not be forgotLibby Gibson, Heartkids Geelong

BOUQUETS to the person who handed in my $150 left in an ATM during my state of reverie at Ocean Grove. It’s fantastic that honest people are still around. Shane, Ocean Grove BUCKETS to police. I rang to report a suspect guy offering lawn mowing but he only looked through windows and asked what I had bought as presents for Christmas. I said it was not an emergency, because the guy was just casing houses, and was hung up on. Lee, Thomson BUCKETS to a supermarket chain that’s one of the largest in town but lacking in thought for shoppers unlucky enough to need a toilet. It’s not fair to have to rely on smaller traders to supply these conveniences for your shoppers. Caught Short, Ocean Grove BOUQUETS to Run Fitness’s Ryan for being such an understanding, devoted personal trainer. I appreciate everything you have done to help me achieve my goals. I would not have been unable to get where I am today without you. Happy Client, Highton BOUQUETS to Department of Human Services for listening to my side in our dispute and resolving the issue in a positive manner like true professionals. Geelong can be confident its getting the best in service delivery from the department. Steve, Norlane

IN DISCUSSING global warming, Allan Barron (Letters, December 2) said science was only concerned with past events and that predictions about the future were unreliable. He seemed to ignore the fact that the practice of science is based around making rigorous and carefully tested hypotheses about the future. Most of us seem to trust scientists when they make predictions about machines continuing to function or planes staying in the air. In any event, there is ample evidence to show global warming is already with us. It is untrue that “in the past 11 years there has been a slight cooling”. The World Meteorological Organisation has concluded that 13 of the warmest years were in the past decade and a half and 2011 concludes a decade that ties as the hottest measured. The alarming decline in the extent and thickness of Arctic sea ice is undeniable. Despite his disdain for prediction, Mr Barron confidently stated that in five years predictions about global warming would be shown to be bogus. I do not wish to wait for more data. In five years we need to be well on the way to transforming our energy production into renewable energy and changing the way we transport ourselves and our goods. I look forward to the challenge of working with the Geelong community to create a clean, green future for our children. Dave Campbell Hamlyn Heights

I WOULD like to reply to stories in the December 2 and 9 Independents about halal practices in the region. I believe that with “stunning” animals don’t realise what is going to happen to them. With halal practises the opposite is realised. This is sadistic. Oppression? We are trampelled without knowing. The mighty dollar, the Golden Calf, is worshipped again.

Halal of a way to die

LINDA McCartney said: “If slaughterhouses had glass walls the whole world would be vegetarian”. I do not suggest everyone should be vegetarian but we do have a responsibility to ensure animals killed for human consumption are spared unnecessary pain and suffering. In the UK one in five abattoirs is already fitted with CCTV cameras. Compulsory installation of CCTV cameras in abattoirs would help reduce breaches of minimal protection laws. From the stories emerging on television of animal cruelty both overseas and in Australia, it is clear the present audit system of some abattoirs is insufficient. Suzanne Roberts Whittington

NEVILLE Whitely, of Geelong and District Football League, didn’t convince me about the impact of proposed gaming machine laws (Independent, December 2) and I am sure no one who has looked at the facts would agree with him either. His establishment can have all of the low-intensity poker machines he likes and no one would have to sign up to Federal Government’s proposed precommitment scheme. I wonder why he neglected to mention this salient point? It couldn’t possibly be that his club relies for its existence on gamblers’ losses on high-intensity machines? As for the so-called benefits to sport clubs, I see no evidence of this. Council has spent a boot-load of money upgrading facilities at eastern suburbs over the past few years. I have no objection to my rates supporting community groups but why is this even necessary if the poker machines are such a big money spinner for the clubs? Poker machines are the cause of untold misery in the parts of Geelong where the people can least afford it. The Government’s measures are a tiny step to trying to redress some of the worst effects of one of the most addictive forms of gambling. Mr Whiteley should get on the winning side of the debate and adjust to the new reality. His clubs and the city will be the winners. Kevin V Russell Geelong

letters Airing information IN RESPONSE to a letter headlined ‘Secrecy stinks’ in last week’s Independent, Barwon Water has taken a number of steps to inform the community about this project, a mail out, door-knocking nearby residents and information and maps on the Barwon Water website The information included the location of the

Last week: An Aerosonde drone.

Flying into trouble A STORY under the headline ‘Flying into the danger zone’ in the December 9 Independent gave an upbeat account of how Australian company Aerosonde was associated with giant American corporation Textron. The article dealt with Aerosonde’s involvement with the CFA and emergency services in testing an unmanned aircraft system. Unfortunately, the photograph showed a totally different use for this drone. It has nothing to do with civilian use, as suggested in the article. The photograph showed two American military personnel standing beside a military delivery vehicle making adjustments. The shark-like drawing on the front of the drone was a copy from a US military fighter plane from World War II. The photograph was used in a Textron advertisement extolling the virtues of their military hardware. My concerns about climbing into bed with the United States industrial military complex are many. Of course, it makes all sorts of equipment for civilian use but the real profits, the gravy, for the such companies lies in manufacturing military equipment. Most government military contracts over-run but taxpayers still pay. The Australian Federal Government’s Defence Department website went blank when seeking information about Aerosonde’s involvement with Textron. However, I had no difficulty Googling the St Leonards runway site. The difficulty came when trying to physically find the location because there was no signage at the place where I believed it to be. “Flying into the danger zone” may be prophetic. The price of freedom is vigilance. John Ellis Point Lonsdale

News from Shell

Andrew Smith, Shell VP Downstream Australia; Ann Pickard, Shell Australia Country Chair; Stephanie Harvey, CEO Indigenous Community Volunteers and the Hon. Jenny Macklin MP, Minister for Families, Housing, Community Services & Indigenous Affairs launched Shell’s national social investment programme.

SHELL INVESTS $15 MILLION IN SOCIAL INVESTMENT

423352-FB21-9

Shell in Australia’s Country Chair, Ann Pickard, has announced the company will invest up to $15 million during the next three years to support a range of programmes across Australia aimed at addressing educational disadvantage.

Speaking at the launch, Ann said Shell’s social investment portfolio focuses on education – including projects that encourage an interest in science and technology – and includes national, state and territory initiatives.

real people fast cash!

LIKE a lot of people in Geelong, I’m thrilled with the idea that finally the north gate to our beautiful city is going to get some long overdue cash spent on it (Independent, November 5). It’s all absolutely wonderful but there’s a huge fly in the ointment jar. Until the rotten heroin epidemic is erased from the area, the great plans are going to amount to zilch. The impoverished public housing tenants will still destroy their taxpayer-funded homes and any new stock will rapidly suffer the same fate. Everywhere I go it’s the same, old, broken record. People throw the problem into the too-hard basket and bury their collective heads in the sand. But the Geelong public can rest assured at least one person is out there fighting to clean the twin boroughs up. The sight of Labuan Square and Alkira St shopping precincts is enough to make one weep. The public housing tenants must be bound by the terms of their leases. The AMA suggests, quite sensibly, that they also be randomly drug tested as part of their right to occupancy. Steve Joseph Norlane

“Shell views education as critical to opening up choices in life – it enables youth to seize opportunities, helping them to fulfil their potential,” said Ann. Shell Geelong Refinery currently supports six programmes under the national social investment programme including PLAY (Glastonbury Community Services); Limeburners Link (Greening Australia Victoria); Bluearth Approach (Bluearth); Water Smart Kids (City of Greater Geelong); Give Where You Live; and Tute Group (Bethany Community Support).

Kenobi’s got to be kidding

Kidding around: Kid Kenobi plays Geelong this weekend.

BY ERIN PEARSON HE’S visited some of the world’s most amazing places and DJed atop the greatest festival stages but nothing beats a smile from his precious baby girl for doting dad Kid Kenobi. A dance music veteran of close to 20 years, Kenobi, also known as Jesse Desenberg, took time out from his hectic schedule to chat to the Independent about his life, love and nine-monthold daughter Ayanna. He said the transition from world stage to dirty nappies was a “blessing in disguise”. The experience was not only grounding, it made his music more “meaningful”. “Music’s always been a main priority in my life, what I wanted to do, my purpose,” Kenobi said. “Now when I go to the studio I get tingles of guilt wondering whether I’ll get to see my daughter tonight. “Most of my life, as far as

DJing goes, I’ve always travelled on weekends and never thought about it; going to another state and another country and partying all the time. “Fatherhood puts everything in perspective.” Kenobi considered 2011 the most intense year of his life, with major changes at every turn. He finished working with his manager of 10 years and became a father, all within three months. “Having a new family and becoming grounded has helped focus me and keep me sustained. I’ve never had routine in my life,” Kenobi said. “It’s ironic that people think having a family will detract from a career but for me it refined everything. “Now because I’m my own manager I’m making all these decisions on my own. “This is awesome.” Kenobi observed he’d just about done it all in dance

music, from being named Australia’s favourite DJ a record three times to an itinerary reading like a Lonely Planet guidebook to the best nightclubs around the world. But despite the accolades and achievements, he was keen to maintain his hectic lifestyle. “I know where my priorities lie now and understand how the industry works. I’ve started other things outside DJing like my music label and have been dabbling in new parts of music. “I’m feeling really positive – bring on 2012.” Kenobi will travel to Geelong with his latest EP, The Base Music, before launching new single Hotel Party with brother Miles just prior to Christmas. Kid Kenobi plays Home House this Saturday.

Cast into future BY ERIN PEARSON THE future is what you make it, according to Geelong rock band Cast Iron Pinata. And it’s looking pretty good for the foursome after recently recording a debut film clip and planning a whirlwind trip overseas. With the band preparing to release new songs in Geelong this weekend, drummer Khale Lewis said Cast Iron Pinata had come a long way since members’ school days at Newcomb Secondary College. “If we think back to how we were a few years back we’ve really matured as a group and settled into our on-stage performances,” he said. “You learn what your role is in a group after a while and it really shows. “We’ve become more excited about the future and so have our fans.” A chat with Lewis and bandmates Pepe Raye, Nathan Henschke and Jim Grace exposes the bond behind their edgy rock music. They appear relaxed yet excited about 2012 as they reflected on a journey that has included sharing stages with the likes of You Am I, The Screaming Jets, Colin Hay and The Butterfly Effect. The band has been going from strength to strength since the release of debut EP Rock/Funk/Awesome in 2010, which earned radio play on stations including Triple M and K-Rock. Putting friendship first and music a close second, Lewis attributed the band’s early success to its members meeting in high school before navigating the industry together.

UPCOMING SHOWS PINK TRIBUTE SHOW

Ironed out: Geelong band Cast Iron Pinata is enjoying early success. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 74788 “We found we were all really musically orientated, which brought us together,” he said. “We set out to be a band from day one. “We’re just lucky to have groups like Spinning Half Studios here to help bring live music back to Geelong.” Vocalist and guitarist Raye said the journey had been amazing so far, with the band looking forward to expanding its fan base. “Khale and I had a conversation the

other day about whether we would have done things differently if we had only come together as a group now. But we’re so glad we didn’t because we’ve got to explore this crazy business together,” Raye said. “As we grow we want the show to grow more so that’s our motivation. “It’s the best feeling in the world when people want to see you play.” Cast Iron Pinata plays Bended Elbow this Saturday.

Dodge is back BY ERIC BLAIR fter being off the Australian scene since the early 1970s, American carmaker Dodge has returned. First model off the blocks was the Caliber, a mid-sized hatchback with a distinctly SUV style. Caliber, indeed all vehicles in the Dodge range, will please those who complain about so many contemporary cars looking the same. Although the radical body shape shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone because Dodge is part of the Chrysler group, which has made a number of delightfully different cars in recent years. First with the Chrysler PT Cruiser and later

A Stand-out: Styled like nothing else on the road the Dodge Caliber is one for the individualist.

with the big-and-bold Chrysler 300C. It’s not just the outside of the Dodge Caliber that has a fascinating look. The interior has a semi-retro theme that works nicely and certainly grabs attention. There’s less space inside the Caliber than we had anticipated. It’s certainly not cramped in absolute terms, but this is a quite a large car externally and we feel the space efficiency could be better. Check it for yourself if your kids are in their teenage years by taking them along for your test drive. We reckon they will just love the shape of the new Dodge. To page 39

However the sound of a CVT isn’t to all tastes and keen drivers may not like the lack of obvious gear changing with the usual sounds of sudden changes in engine note. Ride comfort is good and noise and vibration are generally nicely subdued. But the Dodge has far more personality and character than anything from Asia. Handling was slightly softer than we like it when Caliber was fitted with its standard 17-inch wheels when we conducted our original test. It now comes only with 18-inch wheels and this has sharpened the car up considerably. The bigger wheels and tyres provide more positive steering and help give solid feedback to the driver nice and quickly. Some may not like the way the windscreen sits a long way forward of the driving seat, but we found we soon got accustomed to this and were happy to put up with a minor inconvenience to gain the great body shape of the spunky Dodge. Despite its keen pricing the 2011 Dodge Caliber comes well-equipped with six airbags, ABS brakes with Brake Assist, Electronic Stability Control with All-Speed Traction Control, media centre, leatherwrapped steering wheel, cruise control, 18-inch alloy wheels and fog lamps.

From page 37 WHILE we are on the family front, the kids will also love to road test (picnic test!) a fascinating optional feature ($1075) in the Caliber’s tailgate. The stereo speakers (two of nine in the full Boston Acoustics sound system) on the inside of the rear hatch fold down and out when the hatch is open so you can direct sound to the outside of the car. Also good news on the picnic front is the chilled glovebox that can hold up to four cans of drink. And when it gets dark you will find a built-in torch sitting neatly in its charger above the rear load area. Originally sold with a choice of engines and equipment levels, the Dodge Caliber is only offered with a 2.0-litre petrol engine mated to a CVT (continuously variable) transmission and at the highest spec (SXT) level. As a trade-off the price of the Caliber SXT dropped significantly from just under $30,000 to a very appealing $23,500. The 2.0-litre petrol engine has a lot more useable torque, and the almost instantaneous reactions of the CVT work well to get the best from the powerplant. On test our fuel consumption was typically about eight to nine litres per hundred kilometres in country driving, and climbed to ten to twelve litres per hundred in the suburbs and city. The continuously variable transmission aids in keeping the figures down to compensate for the blunt nose of the car.

Rally Motors the expert in care for any car or fourwheel-drive R

ally Motors is not only a Geelong institution since 1971, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a VACC accredited workshop. Rally Motorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jay Beck says the accreditation means the business can service vehicles covered under factory new-car warranties without voiding them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve invested lot of money in top equipment so we can offer the same services as a dealership but at a better price,â&#x20AC;? Mr Beck explains. Rally Motors also offers a full-time four-wheeldrive service centre with three experienced off-road vehicle mechanics. Stocking a huge range of 4WD accessories and drive parts, Rally Motors is the place to check with before any off-road adventure for full servicing, preroad trip preparation, touring set-ups and advice. The workshop provides a courtesy car service or as well as a drop-off and pick-up runs for customers. Rally Motors is the workshop to which owners of expensive performance and vintage cars entrust their vehicles, so family sedans are in good hands. Senior mechanic Doug Edwards was recently entrusted with a $1 million early-model left-hand drive Corvette, one of only four left in the world. From log book service, fleet management, brakes, tyres, exhaust, air-conditioning, auto electrical, steering, clutch replacement, change over engines, transmission and more, Rally Motors is Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s complete auto mechanic. Based in the heart of Geelong, Rally Motors serves the Surf Coast, Bellarine Peninsula, Colac, Winchelsea and western districts. Customers can phone Jay at Rally Motors on 5222 1777, visit 36 Mercer St, Geelong, or check www.rallymotors.com.au for more information.

intMaster now offers a pick-up-and-delivery service for customers installing its new wonder product, Ultra Carbon. TintMasterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dave Kershaw says Ultra Carbon is the next generation in car window tint. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re too busy, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll pick up your car, install the tint and deliver your vehicle back to you. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just part of the great service to Geelong and suburbs that we offer at TintMaster. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our experienced and highly qualified tint technicians will professionally install Ultra Carbon on your car in our modern, purpose-built workshop.â&#x20AC;? Dave says Ultra Carbon offers enhanced appearance, performance and protection unmatched by any other product. Its non-metal, nano-hybrid carbon technology combines the popular low-reflective black-type finish of conventional carbon films with superior infrared heat and UV rejection only previously possible with metallic films. Dave says Ultra Carbon provides exceptional optical clarity together with signal-enabling technology eliminating interference for mobile phone, radio and GPS operation. Ultra Carbon also comes with a full lifetime warranty. The TintMaster range includes almost-clear films for drivers preferring a lighter window that still keeps out heat and UV rays. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you want the best look for your car, the best protection for your family and the best value for money, see TintMaster,â&#x20AC;? Dave says. TintMaster is at 9 Gordon Avenue, Geelong West. For more information phone TintMaster on 5221 8877.

The Independent, Friday December 16, 2011


sport Geelong seeking break points GEELONG Cricket Club enjoyed one of its finest victories last week as the Cats snatched victory from the jaws of defeat in a thrilling game against Ringwood. Bowling first, the Cats did a fine job to dismiss the visitors for just 158. Marc Carson was the pick of the bowlers with 4/34, while Luke Muller continued his rich vein of form, taking 3/17. In reply, Geelong moved to 11 runs without loss but disastrously slumped to 7/34, an amazing loss of seven wickets for just 23 runs. From there veteran Andre Borovec, returning to the side to replace the injured Alex Stanley, joined forces with Jake Reed to steady the ship, putting on 43 runs before Reed was out for 14. When Jeremy Hart fell soon after the game appeared lost at 9/105 but Carson and Borovec had other ideas, claiming an amazing one-wicket win in under an hour. Borovec finished unbeaten on 73 in one of his finest innings for the club, while Carson scored 32 in typical fighting fashion. The win put Geelong back in the top eight, although, as we know in this competition, there’s no time to rest because the Cats travel to seventh

Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE placed Dandenong for a one-day game before the Christmas break. A win here would probably see coach Damian Shanahan pleased at the half-way mark of the season, considering the inexperienced side at his disposal, while a loss would indicate a slight under achievement. Geelong Cricket Association has a round of onedayers this Saturday to wrap up the first half of the season, with all games looking like rippers. Top placed Grovedale host third placed Geelong West in the match of the round, a game both teams will be desperate to win, to not only confirm their

premiership credentials, but to avoid getting sent back to the logjam in the middle of the ladder. The Tigers are in first place but it may slightly flatter them because their recent form has been patchy. Their batting has inconsistent compared to their standard over the past decade, culminating in a dismissal for just 130 last game against Leopold. Fortunately, the Tigers’ bowling has been as impressive as ever, Gareth Yelland leading the way with 21 wickets at just 6.95, including a haul of 6/15 last week to claim an important victory. West has probably been on the other end of the luck spectrum, scoring what should have been a match winning 9/279 then reducing Lara to 8/167 before rain ruined the game as the only draw of the round. Grovedale will have to be at its best but West should have the Tigers covered. Selections: ST JOSEPH’S v East Belmont, Manifold Heights v LEOPOLD, LARA v Highton, Newtown & Chilwell v SOUTH BARWON, Bell Post Hill v NORTH GEELONG. In division two, Newcomb & District is in the middle of what is fast becoming a ladder of two halves. With the top teams starting to break away from the pack and with three sides on just one win apiece, the

Dinosaurs can go a long way to wrapping up a finals spot if they can beat Marshall tomorrow. With two wins from their last two starts, Newcomb & District should hold all the aces. Marshall took great strides last season but has fallen away dramatically this campaign, so the Dinosaurs should win comfortably. Selections: Torquay v MURGHEBOLUC, Guild St Mary’s v ST ALBAN’S BREAKWATER, Bell Park v ALEXANDER THOMSON, THOMSON v Waurn Ponds, St Peter’s v GEELONG CITY. Just 10 points separates second and tenth on the division three ladder in the one of the closest seasons in years. Little River sits at the bottom end of the group, with a crucial game against Corio Bay this Saturday. If Little River can’t win it will really struggle to play finals, while Corio Bay is on a high after a fantastic win last week against Teesdale. This momentum should be enough to see Corio Bay claim the points. Selections: TEESDALE v North Shore, Inverleigh v BANNOCKBURN, Shelford v WINCHELSEA, LETHBRIDGE v Corio, MODEWARRE v Meredith.

Trolling anglers enjoy a welcome run-in with Wilson Spit snapper On the bite BRIAN LONG WHEN David Matuch and Andy Schmidt launched their new boat for the first time they thought trolling would be a good way to run in the new motor. It turned out to be a great decision, with a 5.3kg snapper latching onto David’s Rapala Tail Dancer and another fish just over 2kg capping off their maiden voyage nicely. Daniel Stevenson also found the snapper while trolling near Wilson Spit, taking three fish around 2.5kg each in a two hour session when Dr Evil lures in the gold colour worked best. Bait angler Shaun Fairley found good numbers of snapper half way between the channel and Hermsley’s spoil group. Small fish dominated but Shaun caught two better than 3kg each. A large shoal of salmon also erupted beside his boat, with Shaun catching three on small metal lures before they disappeared. Gerry Martin trolled the grass beds between Alcoa and The Sands Caravan Park to catch a brace of pike, most averaging 80cm and the longest 1.1m. Gerry caught all his fish on 10cm Rapala minnows. Pike were also in numbers at North Shore rocks where evening low tides and small baitfish-profile lures are best. Soft plastics were successful around the boat moorings between Royal Geelong Yacht Club and Eastern Beach. Worm patterns were bests on bream and flathead, while minnow patterns take more snapper and pike.

River to sea: Corey Gallagher with a handsome Barwon River bream and Norman Ratajczak shows off a pair of snapper from Wilson Spit. Squid have been found on the inshore grass beds, with small jigs, generally size 2.5, in natural colourations the best option. Whiting were taken throughout the bays, with Bird Rock, Grassy Point, Edwards Point and Queenscliff Bight best. Flathead have been taken from 10m and deeper but the best fish have been coming from the shallows, although in smaller numbers. Peter West fished soft plastics from the shore between Clifton Springs and Hermsley to land four flathead estimat-

ed at better than 1kg each. Queenscliff’s cut rewarded patient anglers with good captures of trevally, salmon and squid, with the best action occurring just on and after dark. Surf anglers again found numbers of snapper from the rocks, especially at Black Rock. Salmon were again taken from the rock platforms between Lorne and Eastern View. Lure accounted for most of the fish, many weighing better than 2kg. The bigger fish seemed to be holding up in the deeper water, with the beaches producing mainly

small salmon. Estuary anglers should look to the Barwon River for salmon. Most have been small, while trevally have also been taken on soft plastics and bream on bait. Corey Gallagher hit the Barwon after collecting some quality fresh bait, which paid off with eight nice bream mostly pushing 40cm. Corey released all his fish because they seemed to still be in spawning mode. Freshwater produced mixed results, with anglers casting small minnow pattern lures in the Barwon River catching redfin better than 1kg. Locations to try include Queen’s and Fyans parks and Breakwater. Derek Shaw fished Deep Lake on lure to take rainbows better than 1.5kg and quite a few small browns. Derek said suspending lures were best, with Atomic Shads his lure of choice. Lake Fyans returned reasonable numbers of redfin again but at anglers must be wary of snakes, with plenty seen on the rocky ledges. Nearby, Lake Lonsdale has been fishing well for redfin but the yabbies have been the big attraction, with the best bags taken after dark. Close to home, Wurdee Boluc Reservoir has been fishing well for lure anglers seeking redfin and trout. Evenings have also rewarded fly anglers with trout and roach, the latter becoming quite active just on and after dark. Shannon Richmond fishing the junction of the Leigh and Barwon rivers where he caught a variety of species. Early in the day produced a couple of average redfin, while tench, carp and a nice 950g brown trout were taken later in the day on Shannon’s shrimp baits. Wilson Spit’s snapper should be the best option this weekend, with the tides perfect leading up to and after dark. For freshwater action, I would head to Deep Lake with mudeye baits or 4cm to 6cm suspending lures such as X raps and Atomic Shads.
