Creek ‘clear of fibres’ BY ERIN PEARSON TESTING has cleared soil in Jan Juc Reserve of potentially deadly asbestos fibres, according to RACV. The insurance giant revealed the results of its “independent specialist” tests this week after EPA confirmed late last month the discovery of asbestos in the reserve. The asbestos was found in building waste dumped as in-fill during work on a stormwater pipe

linked to RACV’s Torquay Golf Club redevelopment. The discovery led to fencingoff of the reserve between Duffields Rd and Hoylake Ave. Residents expressed concerns about the health and safety of families who used the reserve while the asbestos was left exposed and unsecured for over a month. RACV said the specialist had tested soil in a trench line through

the reserve. “In addition to the preliminary results…(that) indicated the vast majority of the reserve where the civil work was done is clear of contamination, Bureau Veritas has reported that no asbestos fibres were found in the soil tested. “A detailed remediation plan was received yesterday from Bureau Veritas and this has been submitted by RACV to the EPA, Surf Coast Shire and WorkSafe

for their agreement. “Once the relevant approvals have been received the rectification works will commence immediately.” RACV said it would engage an independent specialist to oversee the works. “Access to the site is expected to remain restricted until the work is completed.” RACV said a subcontractor had sourced the asbestos-contaminat-

ed soil from another site. Kane Constructions, which is working on the golf club redevelopment, denied any involvement with the pipeline project. Surf Coast Shire revealed another asbestos discovery in a public place this week. The shire said Anglesea Skate Park was closed “until further notice”. Mayor Brian McKiterick said fencing and signage indicating the

asbestos discovery would remain in place during further testing. Cr McKiterick urged anyone seeking more information to phone the shire on 5261 0600 or visit its website for “regular updates”. A third asbestos discovery rocked Bells Beach last year. The Independent discovered in the sand chunks of material from a damaged and exposed asbestos pipe beside stairs to the beach.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN RACING identity and professional MC Rob Gaylard has a special reason for saddling up each year to support McKellar Centre’s fundraising golf day. “My wife’s mother was an inpatient at McKellar Centre for many years, so I’ve seen the staff’s work from close range,” Rob said. “They’re all unsung heroes in my book.” Rob said he had lost count of how long he had served as the golf day’s volunteer compere. “I earn my living doing this sort of thing but I’m always happy to offer my services for this event. It’s only a small price to

pay considering the huge role McKellar Centre plays in the community. “What they do for the community is enormous, so it doesn’t take much for us to get a team together and have a fun day to raise some funds and awareness.”

This month’s golf day will help McKellar Centre buy an upperlimb evaluation kit, the first of its kind in Victoria. The centre’s Kerry O’Sullivan said the customised therapy device would help road trauma and stroke survivors regain hand coordination and function. The golf day will feature an Ambrose competition beginning with a shotgun start 8am on March 30 at 13th Beach golf course. Players will compete over 18 holes before a luncheon and charity auction in the clubhouse. Mr O’Sullivan said entries were available by phoning him on 5279 2222 or emailing kerryo@barwonhealth.org.au.

Work begins on weir to tap Otways water Independent last month that heavy rain had delayed the project. Mr Northey said the project would replace an existing weir decommissioned more than 50 years ago. The project would divert “excess flows” from the creek to the Wurdee Buloc Reservoir’s inlet channel, he said. “The concrete weir is approximately two metres high and five metres wide and will allow excess water to pool and be diverted to the inlet channel.” Mr Northey said Barwon Water would take the water following heavy rain. “Harvesting will occur when flows

are above the required environmental flow, which is one megalitre a day.” Mr Northey said Barwon Water had a State Government bulk entitlement to harvest water from Dewings Creek. Greens state MP Greg Barber criticised the project. “Barwon Water has a very lazy approach to water management. The cost of this project is going to be added to your bill. “They are not in the business of saving you money.” Mr Barber said the Dewings Creek project would add to “stress” on the Barwon River.

“We’ll be left with just a trickle.” Mr Barber said curbing demand was a better option. “Thousands of megalitres are landing on Geelong’s roofs every year. They can’t keep capping more and more creeks as Geelong grows.” Mr Barber suggested State Government should invest in subsidies for conservation initiatives like tanks and efficient showerheads. “Saving water is cheaper than tapping new water and easier to roll out,” he said. “It’s time they came up with a sustainable water strategy around stormwater capture and water reuse.”

PATIENTS have rated Barwon Health’s two major Geelong facilities as “good” in a new statisfaction survey, according to State Government. Health Minister David Davis said patients gave ratings of 77.4 out of 100 to both Geelong Hospital and McKellar Centre in the Victorian Patient Satisfaction Monitor annual report for 2010/2011.

Agencies ‘merge’ GEELONG businesswoman Helene Bender has announced a “merger” of her travel agency with a “like-minded company”. Thirty-five-year-old Allabout Tours & Travel would “relocate” its offices and trade under the Harvey World Travel-Geelong brand after reaching an “opportune time” for the deal, she said.

Leaders ‘investment’ STATE Government has “invested” $800,000 in a Committee for Geelong program to develop new “leaders” for the region. Regional Cities Minister Denis Napthine said the Leaders for Geelong program provided an opportunity for participants to “bring a positive contribution to the community”.

Reefs coming TWO NEW artificial reefs will boost fishing prospects off Torquay and Portarlington, State Government has announced. Agriculture and Food Security Minister Peter Walsh said the “environmentally friendly” reefs would build on the success of a trial of three similar structures in Port Phillip Bay.

Coast towns plan bid for cheap power BY MICHELLE HERBISON BARWON Heads and Ocean Grove residents are banding together to bulkbuy electricity, according to a community spokesman. Ocean Grove Community Association’s Michael Harbour said 60 residents so far had shown interest in the cost-saving project. Mr Harbour the said residents would seek discounted rates for buying as a group rather than individuals. The bid follows a report in the Independent late last year of Portarlington residents working with Powergroup Purchasing to secure cheaper power from AGL. Mr Harbour said the Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads residents would form a panel to work with Powergroup Purchasing for their own deal. Portarlington’s success had prompted the new joint towns bid, he said. “The more people you have signing up for such an initiative, more likely you are to achieve most cost savings.” Mr Harbour said other communities had reported household savings of up to $300 a year. Powergroup Purchasing’s Chris Kechagias said Portarlington groupbuyers had saved about 10.9 per cent. “A lot of elderly people were just sitting on rates that were no longer competitive.” Mr Kechagis said the amount of Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads residents who joined the scheme would determine the size of the savings. Mr Kechagis said Powergroup Purchasing representatives would be on Barwon Heads foreshore during Sunday’s Festival of the Sea to answer questions and take registration details.

Healthy result

Principal out ONE OF Geelong’s most exclusive schools is set to lose its long-serving principal later this year. Dr Pauline Turner said she had advised The Geelong College’s school council that she would retire at the end of the year after nearly 17 years in charge.

Family centre A LAND swap between council and State Government will allow development of a new family and children’s centre at Norlane, according to councillor Bruce Harwood. He said council would sell land in Peacock Ave in return for a similar-size parcel of land on the corner of Gerbera Ave and Tallis St to develop the facility.

Big fees: Gordon students Belinda Wilson and Nina Cleary at the rally on Wednesday. Picture: John Conway 78350

Rally opposes cuts to Gordon funding BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN ABOUT 50 Gordon Institute of TAFE staff and students have rallied in Geelong’s Johnstone Park to protest State Government funding cuts. Australian Education Union organised the rally as part of a state-wide campaign. The union’s Greg Barclay said Gordon was “under pressure” to compete with private training organisations. “The Government has already cut $40 million from TAFE funding and there’s another $230 million in cuts to come,” Mr Barclay said. “This is simply taking funds from TAFE institutes to fund private providers. “At the same time, the Essential Services Commission identified major

quality issues in an unregulated market.” Mr Barclay said the Government had been forced to admit revamping educational standards, resulting in deregulation of up to 50 private training companies. “TAFE institutes, including Gordon, are trying to come up with ways to compete with private training organisations. “Gordon is one of only two TAFE institutes that traded with a surplus and then it was only by 1.7 per cent.” Mr Barclay said TAFE student fees were rising as the funding cuts. Gordon student Belinda Wilson, of Anglesea, said her Certificate IV in youth work was costing her almost $8000. “I did a funded Diploma in

Photography course previously but reassessed my goals and wanted to change careers,” Ms Wilson said. “I did my original course right out of school when you feel pressure to make a choice. “I want to do something to give back to community but I feel I’m being penalised to do it.” Leopold’s Marie Tucker and Waurn Ponds’ Rachel Hayden-Brooks said they each faced $16,000 in fees because they previously studied at university level. Leopold’s Nina Cleary said she was working two jobs to pay for her $8000 fees. “There is a lot of stress and pressure to succeed because I’m worried that if I fail a year I will have to pay more to restudy it.”

BY MICHELLE HERBISON WORK has begun on an Otways weir to pump extra water into Geelong’s supply. Barwon Water capital projects manager Paul Northey said Dewings Creek would supply Geelong with an extra 600 million litres of water a year. The additional water would satisfy about two per cent of existing annual demand, he said.

Council had installed three of six proposed groynes to curb erosion but “only doing half the job” threatened to hasten the erosion, he said. “People are aware there’s a historic mineral spring there but what they see is a bit sad.” Councillor Rod Macdonald said he doubted Clifton Springs could attract enough business to support a mineral spring complex additional to the facility planned for Geelong. The Geelong project would attract tourism with its “critical

mass of activity”, he said. “Any investment like that is obviously done by a private investor but there’d need to be approvals and a lot of work done around the feasibility of it. It’s a fairly expensive, significant investment.” Cr Macdonald said investors had shown no interest in developing a spa at Clifton Springs. Geelong Otway Tourism executive director Roger Grant said he saw potential for mineral springs complexes in both locations.

BY ERIN PEARSON A CHANCE afternoon clean-out has sparked a unique fundraising idea to save newborns. Torquay’s Rebecca Winkler said the death of an infant from her Surf Coast mothers group in November had shattered members. She hoped a second-hand fashion market could raise vital funds for research into Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), which claimed the life of five-month-old River Waddell. “I really wanted to help the family in some way and as I was cleaning out my wardrobe the other week I realised I could get rid of all this stuff and raise money for charity at the same time,” Ms Winkler said. River’s parents, Alex Hamilton and Karl Waddell, set up a foundation in their son’s honor to help fund SIDS research. Ms Hamilton said the tragedy had changed her life. “The outpouring of support has been overwhelming but unfortunately the general public think SIDS has been almost eradicated. When I woke up that morning it wasn’t the case.

“No research is now done in Australia, so we need to send a researcher over to America to gain knowledge and bring it back. We need to know why SIDS is happening.” The fundraiser will run from 9am to 1pm

Plant industry disease ‘fears’ BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A DESTRUCTIVE plant disease is threatening the region’s nursery and forest industries after reaching the Otways, according to authorities. Department of Primary Industries confirmed myrtle rust had spread to more than 25 sites around the state, including Lorne, after it was first detected in January. The outbreak had prompted Geelong Botanic Gardens put restrictions on movement of plant materials, director Annette Zealley said. Vaughans Native Nursery owner Phillip Vaughan revealed the myrtle rust scare had already cost him tens of thousands of dollars. “We propagated 1000 plants in six new varieties of flowering gums specifically for the open garden scheme but DPI told us we

couldn’t use them because of the disease,” Mr Vaughan said. “There have been some popular plant sales that have been cancelled. “Everyone is erring on the side of caution at the moment, because in this day and age everyone is mindful of public liability. “Only time will tell how far it spreads and what effect it will have. If it’s a worst-case scenario we all have to do as much as we can to lessen its impact and manage it.” Mr Vaughan said myrtle rust had been “devastating” to the industry in New South Wales and Queensland, where it had higher prevalence. Incident controller Gordon Berg said DPI was unaware how myrtle rust reached Victoria. The disease was now impossible to eradicate it because it was so widespread, he said.

“The tiny spores of myrtle rust are easily spread on contaminated plant material, equipment, vehicles, clothing and shoes, as well as by animals, wind and water.” Mr Berg said myrtle rust attacked members of the myrtaceae plant family, particularly young, soft, actively growing leaves, shoot tips and young stems. Plants at risk included gum trees, bottlebrush, tea tree, lilly pilly, paperbark, myrtle, guava, midyim, rose apple, brush box and New Zealand Christmas bush. Mr Berg said suspect plants should left untouched. Reports of suspected myrtle rust should go to DPI on 1800 084 881 or plant.protection@dpi.vic.gov.au. Geelong Field Naturalists will present a talk on plant biosecurity, including myrtle rust, in Geelong Botanic Gardens’ meeting room at 7pm Tuesday.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A SELF-CONFESSED tree-changer on a national hunt for tall timber has discovered two outstanding specimens in Geelong. National Register of Big Trees founder Derek McIntosh travels the country looking for additions to his website. Mr McIntosh went out on a limb to declare two trees at Geelong’s botanic gardens as the largest of their kind in Australia. The “magnificent” ginkgo and black walnut trees caught his eye before he measured them for circumference, height and crown spread. Mr McIntosh also branched out to Geelong racecourse where he found a noteworthy weeping myall. “The most wonderful find in Geelong was the champion weeping myall standing in the car park of the racecourse,” he said. Mr McIntosh was urging residents to nominate trees, spread the word about the register and send him photos. “I don’t have a horticultural background, so I have a group of expert supporters that advise on the botanical aspects of the nominated species. “Australia’s largest trees of each species are recorded in the register, with points awarded on the measurements I take.” Mr McIntosh said the region’s trees owed a debt to the foresight of early tree lovers who planted them in botanic gardens and private arboretums. “All these trees have a story to tell and it’s amazing to think about the hisTrunk call: Derek McIntosh with Geelong Botanic tory of some of our special trees.” Gardens director Annette Zealley and the black Mr McIntosh said his register was at walnut set to appear on his register of “big trees”.

tives and issues. Red Cross confirmed this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appeal would again include door-knocks as well as a range of activities, events and public collections. A spokesperson said Red Cross chose Leopold Lodge for the Geelong region launch to highlight the serviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work with the elderly. Red Cross volunteers regularly visit nursing homes, while the organisation also runs daily telephone checks on their welfare of elderly people living alone.

BY MICHELLE HERBISON NELSON Park School risks a â&#x20AC;&#x153;backwards stepâ&#x20AC;? if senior and junior students combine at its main campus, according to a special education expert. Deakin Universityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director of special needs education, Wendy Kortman, said a separate campus for senior students was in-line with mainstream education. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We hope weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re past those days of putting people with younger age groups just because they have a low intellect,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the past this was very prevalent but things are improving and we need to continue with that progress. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Enrolments are not decreasing in the area. Therefore, maybe there needs to be a commitment to provide a suitable long-term facility for senior students to have the chance for social, academic and personal growth with opportunities for transition into the community.â&#x20AC;? The Independent reported in January that Nelson Park was desperately seeking an alternative senior campus because

PH:

State Government would acquire its Corio site mid-year. Principal Di Leverett said the school community disagreed with an Education Department decision that enough room was available to accommodate year10-to-12 students in the main campus at Bell Park. Labor MP John Eren last week called on Education Minister Martin Dixon to stop the closure. He warned that overcrowding would compromise studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; safety. Dr Kortman believed Nelson Park Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main campus at Bell Park would â&#x20AC;&#x153;not be optimalâ&#x20AC;? for holding students from prep to year 12. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to lump them all in together just because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the place available Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d question whether those facilities would be suitable.â&#x20AC;? Dr Kortman said campuses needed play equipment, facilities and general space areas dependent on age groups. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have worked in p-12 schools myself that have been well-planned but at the present site at Nelson Park that would not be possible.â&#x20AC;?

Course paints a bright future for refugee Doh BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN THE SIMPLE bamboo structures of Doh Doo’s homeland are a far cry from a grand Eastern Beach mansion. But that’s where the Burmese refugee has found himself after landing a prized painting apprenticeship. Doh is working with second generation heritage painter and restoration expert Simon Viccars on historic Merchiston Hall after overcoming significant obstacles. He spent eight years in a crowded and dirty refugee camp on the ThaiBurmese border with his family before arriving in Australia. Averting his eyes, Doh briefly recounted his refugee camp experiences. “It was like being dead, even though you are alive,” he said quietly. “I never thought I can be here.” Despite a background foreign to painting, Doh has taken to the trade with a vengeance, according to Mr Viccars. “I had him for a week of work experience and that was enough to prompt me to offer him an apprenticeship,” he said. “He did even the dirty and boring jobs really well without complaining and paid attention to detail.”

The work experience was part of an English as a Second Language course that Doh studied at Gordon Institute of TAFE. “Working with a second language is very difficult,” Doh admitted. “I think I pick it up quicker now because I know how we work and what we are doing.” Mr Viccars considered the course a learning experience for both men. “At first I had to be careful with my instructions and think a lot more about what I’d say to him,” Mr Viccars said. Doh, a 22-year-old first-year apprentice, said he saw his future in the painting trade after four years in Australia. “I want to stick with this job,” he said. “It is better to work, to support the family. I am the oldest so I have to work.” Mr Viccars said Doh had occasionally opened up to him and secondyear apprentice Shannyn Champion about his background. “But it’s difficult for him given where he’s come from and what he’s been through. “I can see he’s learned a lot. Safety was something I had to pull him up on and he wasn’t used to taking breaks but he’s getting the hang of it now.”

City ‘compelling’ for NBN hook-up

GEELONG has a “compelling” case for an early hook up to Australia’s national broadband network, according to councillor Rod Macdonald. He said council had been “lobbying hard” to become one of the first cities to have access to the network. An NBN Co “discovery truck” visited Geelong this week spruiking the advantages of connection to the network. Cr Macdonald said Geelong’s large health, employment and “advanced manufacturing” sectors boosted the city’s case for an early rollout. “We have a very strong case to receive the NBN as soon as possible and this has been the basis of our ongoing lobbying efforts Geelong was left out of the first two stages of the rollout despite the Independent reporting business’s complaints about a series of internet service “black spots” around the city. 1022589-FB8-12

3 DAYS ONLY

Fast times on the tiny track MOTOR racing is so horrendously expensive that most enthusiasts end up watchers rather than racers. Even the lower level competitions require $100,000 annual budgets. But not for the members of West Coast Radio Control Model Car Club – their races are just as competitive but only cost an initial investment of around $200. The model cars are capable of speeds topping 75km/h over the short distance of the back straight and can lap the entire track in around 14 seconds. The club has been racing since the early 1990s, beginning appropriately enough in an old car park next to the former Road Traffic Authority in South Geelong. Club secretary Paul Davis said the club eventually needed to find a dedicated track. “We moved to the Bell Park Sports Club grounds in Batesford. We all put in to construct a permanent driver’s stand and paint the track,” Paul remembered. “We race twice a month, weather permitting. “The track is around 220 metres long with a 60-metre main straight. Cars are timed using a

Join the club JOHN VAN KLAVEREN computer controlled timing system, the same as full-sized race cars. “A small transponder is put in the car to count its laps and lap times. “Races last for five minutes, with two qualifying rounds against the clock to determine starting positions for the three finals.” Paul said club members also adopted roles as marshals when not piloting their racers. “Most of our members get into racing simply because they love cars and racing, although some just love playing with toy cars,” he laughed. “Our members are from all walks of life. Some have been playing with radio controls since childhood, while others discov-

ered a passion for it later in life.” Paul said club members competed all over the country at state and national events. “It doesn’t matter if you have never raced before or if you just want to have a go on the track. For as little as $10 you can have a full days racing with full lap timing. “We also have a barbecue lunch at every meet.” Paul said the club had cars to suit every age and skill level, starting with a basic Mini for as little as a couple of hundred dollars. “Or you can go all out with a top-of-the line touring car and spend a few thousand,” Paul said “The competition is fierce but friendly and there’s always someone there to offer assistance and advice should you need it.” As well as the entry level Mini, Paul said the club raced electric and “nitro” touring cars. “But we’re open to racing anything with wheels,” he chuckled. Paul said the club’s next race meeting would start 10.30am on March 18. More information was available at the club website, westcoastrccarracing.asn.au.

Welcome to our column in the Surf Coast Independent where we report on some of the recent activities within our business.

Excitement is building along the surf coast as kids of all ages practise their defence and layup skills in preparation for their team to debut into the Geelong Basketball Competition in April. For the Anglesea Power Station’s Gary Hindle, seeing this squad, known as the Surf Coasters, join the Geelong competition will be a culmination of more than a year of hard work. “We proposed the establishment of a local Surf Coast Shire representative development squad to provide some structured basketball coaching that was lacking in the

community,” said Gary. “I believe it’s important for the local kids to keep some form of identity with their Surf Coast community instead of having to travel to Geelong to further their basketball skills and development.” “This squad has now been training for six weeks and will commence playing in the Geelong Basketball Competition in April this year.” In 2011 Gary received a $3,000 Alcoa grant that assisted the Surf Coasters to purchase balls, equipment and singlets, and provide coaching clinics. The Surf Coast Shire has also helped cover the cost of hiring a bus to transport the teams to and from Geelong. “Currently we are aiming to field

one U/12 girls, one U/14 girls, two U/12 boys, two U/14 boys and one U/16 boys’ team. Seven prospective coaches have been anointed as well as a head coach to assist with training drills, team selection and developing consistent game plans. We have a working committee of five as well as other members who will be assisting with fundraising activities.” “Basketball Geelong have helped us to develop the club structure and provided us with players and coaching staff for our initial training sessions. They have also organised for the Lady Supercats and the Supercats to run training sessions and an exhibition match.”

against top players from the NBL, NBA and the Australian team. “Basketball is a great all season sport. It is very sociable for the kids and encourages families to travel together for tournaments.” “The highlight for me in my involvement with basketball is watching the kids learn and develop, while enjoying themselves with their mates. It is incumbent on any coach to ensure that the kids have fun and enjoy what they are doing, as well as develop their skills and understanding of the sport.”

Gary has been involved in basketball for most of his life. While he no longer plays due to hip and back injuries, during the 80s he played for the Werribee Devils where he got to compete

letters Meters denied GEELONG people might have done well if they had refused to have smart meters installed on their homes. Having refused the meters, a colleague and I sent the appropriate lawful documentation to Powercor head office. We were subsequently visited by two of Powercor’s top brass, who came from Melbourne to speak to us. In the course of the conversation, rumors of $500 fines for refusing the meters were scotched and my friend and I were exempted from the rollout because of our refusal. The 14 other residents in our block were to have the meters installed because they did not refuse them! The Powercor representatives confirmed there was no compulsion nor fine applicable for refusal. People in Geelong who thought they could do nothing about the smart meter rollout were sorely mistaken. Once again, constitutionally, no Australian government has any power of “civil conscription”. No one can be forced into the army, to be medicated, as in fluoridation or forced vaccinations, and no one can be forced to have a smart meter. The smart meter rollout is just another example of governments facilitating the profitability of major corporations. It is time these dubious governments started governing for the benefit of their constituents and that their constituents started making their representatives do their job. Gary Oraniuk Geelong West

Free but costly WIND IS free, sunshine is free, water is free, coal is free and so is gas. The only difference between them is the cost and manpower that needs to be utilised to turn them into useable power. Wind generators need to be manufactured, erected, linked to the power grid and maintained. Solar power requires panels that need to be manufactured, installed, maintained and read, not by employed meter readers but remotely by smart meters. Gas and coal are very inexpensive resources that have to be extracted from the ground. Gas needs little interference to make it useable; brown coal is burned to extract its usefulness. While some of the wind generators and the solar panels are manufactured in Australia, most are not, so they cost extra because of shipping and handling costs. Australia uses very little of its coal and gas. Most is exported. With the skyrocketing prices as they are now, it seems that using our own coal and gas are the best options unless and until something else can be invented. EA Cross Wandana Heights

A cancer on freedom STATING the obvious, it’s what is adopted for governance rather than the findings and recommendations of inquiries that’s important. To its credit, the Baillieu Coalition Government allowed Victoria Police’s upper echelon inquiry under QC Jack Rush to do its job unencumbered at arms length and has since adopted 24 of 25 recommendations. Given the delegated-committee mess that police command and squandered-dollars IT systems were in, taxpayers and their families should now be in the zone for better law and order enforcement. Conversely and agreed, Ray Finkelstein’s 470page independent media inquiry recommendations have yet to be responded to by the Federal Government. Nevertheless, in total the backgrounding and findings represent a horse of a different colour. Certainly, I’d appreciate a more-accessible and

less-incestuous press council. Try contacting it for a second opinion let alone gain a response. But to basically have freedom of the press controlled by government via a News Media Council would push the nanny state confluence over the hump and place a cancer in the gut of democracy. This is yet one more reason why the house-ofcards minority Gillard Government needs to confirm its mandate by calling an early election. Richard Worland Manifold Heights

Waste of fluoridation THE CALLS by media and some politicians for more government funding of subsidised dentistry omit a vital issue: the wastage of funds on compulsory water fluoridation. From 2002 to 2010 State Government swept across regional Victoria spending vast sums of money on propaganda campaigns and then on building and commissioning water fluoridation projects. The communities of Geelong, Warrnambool, Castlemaine, Mildura and others comprehensively rejected fluoridation but the Government overrode local decision making. A similar process occurred in Melbourne in 1977 over the strong objection of senior dentistry and medical figures from University of Melbourne and elsewhere. Fluoridation is rejected right across Europe yet Europeans’ dental health is equal to or better than ours. What gives? Geelong’s media could champion a campaign for better dental education and services using money saved by scrapping outdated water fluoridation. David McRae Geelong West

Corporal punishment CORPORAL Benjamin Roberts-Smith was awarded the Victoria Cross in 2011, for conspicuous gallantry in action in Afghanistan. On June 11, 2010, he was second in charge of a patrol engaged by enemy machinegun and rocket propelled grenade fire from multiple and higher positions. Two soldiers were wounded and the troop, due to the elevated fortified positions of the enemy, was pinned down. The patrol manoeuvred to within 70 metres of the enemy positions, from which it drew heavy, intense, sustained and, by virtue, effective fire. The patrol fought through the fire until it reached a range of 40 metres. At this point the weight of the intense fire prevented further movement forward. It was then that Cpl Roberts-Smith seized an opportunity to utilise cover from a small structure. As he approached the structure he sighted and killed an insurgent. With his patrol still pinned down, Cpl RobertsSmith showed himself to the enemy to draw fire. His patrol commander killed a machine gunner with a grenade. Cpl Roberts-Smith then stormed the enemy position, killing the remaining men. His patrol was then able to break into the enemy’s position and retrieve the remainder of the troop previously pinned down. People like these enable people like us to sleep safe in our beds at night. I, for one, was appalled at two people’s recent comments about Cpl Roberts-Smith. Perhaps they need a reminder the world can be a dangerous place and would be even worse without heroes like Cpl Roberts-Smith. Councillor Ron Nelson Highton

Band’s drive for heavy metal “We come from a small town ourselves, so our background is from a relatively starved music area. To be in a position where our band can do these regional tours is great. “We figure the major cities have had their chance, so it’s time to bring the show back to regional Australia and see how crazy the small towns can get. “These tours always end up some of the most fun shows we play anywhere. Sweaty venues, stage dives, singalongs, beach hangouts. Sick summer, indeed.” McCall said the band’s unlikely name arrived on a whim when members were forced to make a quick decision. Parkway Drive was the name of the street where they first rehearsed and continued to do so, he said. McCall said fans could expect “a million per cent” from the band’s Geelong performance. “It really is the case for us because we play every show like our last,” he said. “We’re not a massive bells and whistles band, what we love about the music is having a connection with people. “We’re just going to put on a massive show.” Parkway Drive will perform at Geelong Arena on Friday night.

BY ERIN PEARSON A SUBURBAN-sounding name belies the death metal intensity of exciting Australian rock band Parkway Drive. The Byron Bay group is starting 2012 with an all-out tour of regional Australia, with Geelong set for its serving this Friday night. Lead singer Winston McCall said the Sick Summer II tour would shock unassuming punters taken in by the band’s mild moniker. “The music we play is very heavy and dark-sounding but, being in Byron Bay, we didn’t want a deathly-sounding name because we didn’t want to scare people off,” McCall said. “It worked. People just sat there and looked at the sign with our name then looked at us and were pleasantly surprised. “In the first place it took several years for people to even figure out we were a heavy metal band. People thought we’d be soft, so it was a real surprise.” McCall said the band had chosen to visit regional towns and cities on purpose after growing up on the sunny northern coast of New South Wales. Many smaller towns were traditionally fed a diet of pub cover bands rather than original rockers, he noted.


Finally Friday

Rowles about BY ERIN PEARSON JOHN Rowles was a fresh-faced and fancy free 17year-old when he first touched foot on Australian shores in 1964. Little did the promising Kiwi singer expect the adventure to catapult him onto the world stage and through more than four decades of success. Few stars can say they’ve partied with Elvis, dated I Dream of Jeannie’s Barbara Eden, played tennis with Olivia Newton John, talked rugby with Tom Jones or turned down an offer to record Kenny Rogers’ newly written song Lucille. Rowles will celebrate his 65th birthday in Geelong as part of his final farewell tour, Now is the hour – The Final Bow. “I first came over with Eddy Lowe and we were a duo singing Beatles songs in Melbourne and Sydney. Then I went solo but it was tough and I had to go out on the road with Billy Thorpe and, boy oh boy, I wasn’t ready for that,” Rowles laughed. “Then by chance I met Cliff Richard’s manager, Peter Gormley, and in no time I was on the road to London and superstardom.” Rowles’ hits include Cheryl Moana Marie, Tania and If I Only Had Time. He was looking forward to visiting Geelong so he could make his audience feel special “one last time”. “I want them to feel they’ve been touched like they’re the only person in the room and I’m singing directly to them,” Rowles said. “After all these years that’s still the most important thing to me. “It means a lot to me to travel the world and perform one last time for all those people who have supported me over the last 45 years and, most importantly, to know I’ll be giving them 100 per cent.

Crackmasters expanding with two more franchises eelong asphalt and pavement maintenance franchising business Crackmasters has added another two franchises. Barry Tsitas and Shane Paulo have joined as central west and central north Victoria franchisees respectively, bringing a wealth of additional knowledge to Crackmasters. Crackmasters covers all types of surface maintenance, including roads, footpaths, driveways, sports courts and even timber decking. Director Jason Cobb says the company focuses on preventing serious slip and trip risks. “That small crack can turn into a major headache if left untreated,” Jason explains. “Plus, it’s much more cost-effective to deal with it sooner rather than later.” Crackmasters recently added a mobile pressure-washing unit to its range of services. “People think their driveways are clean but they are surprised at how refreshed and revived their concrete can look after we have given it a

Clients include City of Greater Geelong, Barwon Water, Barwon Health, government departments, retirement homes, schools and private domestic customers.

The centre and students’ parents participated in national research under Griffiths University’s Professor Robyn Jorgensen, finding that early-years swimming made children smarter, more sociable and confident and better at interacting with peers. Children enjoy the aquatic environment at the centre while listening to teachers and following their instructions. The water provides a wonderful medium for children as young as infants to absorb a range of stimuli. Children can participate in learn-to-swim programs before they can walk. No other sport offers young children the same scope for participation. Geelong Aquatic Centre has parents in the water with their children from the age of four months.

G

As well as encouraging participation and enjoyment in water, swimming lessons have many other benefits. A child familiar with water from an early age has an advantage over others afraid or inexperienced in aquatic environment other than the bath. Children who are happy and confident in water can think of ways to get out of any difficulties and will be more likely to learn to swim quickly, safely and enjoyably. Geelong Aquatic Centre offers an ideal environment for children and infants. The specialist learn-to-swim facility has no distractions such as water slides or aqua aerobics lessons. • Children are also supervised when swimming. • The centre also offers: • warm water at 32C; • warm air to retain body heat; • passionate, caring, dedicated, trained staff; • a sequential, developmentally based, fun program;

• classes in developmentally appropriate age groups; • catering for individual needs; • colourful, well-equipped environment; • Austswim accreditation as a tier-one school. Geelong Aquatic Centre’s Debbie Gill is an Austswim and Swim Australia course presenter in Australia and Asia. She also regularly speaks at national conferences where she keeps up-todate with industry information. “Being a competent swimmer is far more than a skill for recreation and enjoyment,” Debbie says,” it’s a skill that may save a child’s life. Geelong Aquatic Centre operates under the motto: Swimming lessons – a gift for life. “Every child must learn to swim,” Debbie says. Parents can contact the centre to enrol children by phoning 5222 5530 or emailing geoff@geelongaquaticcentre.com.au.

BY ERIC BLAIR aguar reinvented itself five years ago by designing cars that moved away from retro looks. The latest Jaguar XJ is almost futuristic in its shape, with a profile indicating strength and speed. The rear end is totally different. It has taillights that are vertically positioned and give the rear end a polarising appearance. At first we did not like the look, but after a couple of hours following other cars on the road test, we grew accustomed to the style. In particular we thought they suited the black cars. We also like the use of the `leaper’ Jaguar badge in what is a simple, yet effective, rear end. The XJ’s interior is typical Jag - refined, comfortable, practical and luxurious. A semicircular timber ring around the dash and extending to the front doors gives the cabin a ‘Riva’ boat style that adds to the gentleman’s club feel. This is enhanced by the car’s panoramic glass roof that not only gives the interior a light, bright feel but also lowers the roof line. Jaguar XJ is a big car, but it’s low slung in the traditional Jag sportssedan manner. While interior space is good in the two front seats, the back seat legroom is better described as adequate rather than luxurious in the standard model. We suggest the long-wheelbase (LWB) option if you plan to carry rearseat passengers for trips of any distance. It provides an extra 125mm of leg room and that makes a huge difference. The latest Jaguar instrument panel looks conventional at first glance, but is as future oriented as the rest of the car. That’s because what initially appears to be a conventional array actually contains a cluster of virtual dials for the speedo, tachometer and ancillary gauges. We have to admit to not liking the fact that only the readings for the current range of vehicle speed and engine revs are clearly shown on the computer generated dials. For example, if you’re driving at 60 km/h the only numbers easily read on the speedo are those indicating from 50 to 70 km/h, the others are greyed out. Familiarity may have changed our opinion on this focus on current speed and revs, we only spent our usual week in the new Jaguar.

Big snapper surprise for angler off Torquay On the bite BRIAN LONG ANGLER’S skills were tested over the past week in rough conditions but recorded some excellent captures as the weather settled. Possibly the best snapper caught not just in the past week, but for some time now, was taken by Jason Hoekstra off Torquay early last Sunday. Jason’s absolute ripper bottomed the scales at 11.65kg, with very few snapper this size ever taken locally. Paul Jacoby also fished offshore, taking snapper averaging 900g and two just over 2kg each off Collendina. Salmon continued to excite in and around Port Phillip Heads. Fish over 3kg were taken, with most closer to 1kg. Trolling small, white occy skirts worked but casting small soft plastics into the bust-ups was best, especially with clear-coloured power minnows. Salmon were also caught at the mouth of Swan Bay. The fish were chasing baitfish on the surface at first light but disappeared as the sun rose, with anglers trolling again finding them but further into the bay. Stephen Davis fished the grass beds between Swan Island and Duck Island for a bag limit catch of squid. Two were over 2kg and caught on Yamashita 2.5 jigs in the Blue Mullet pattern. Terry and Daniel Gibbs fished the edge of the Coles Channel between Edwards Point and St Leonards with pippies for a bag-limit catch of whiting to 43cm. The action was best on the run-up to high tide. Terry McMillan also caught a nice bag of whiting while fishing Point Richards from first light. Undersize snapper were a problem, with Terry running out of bait in two hours. Danny Smith drifted the area known as The Graveyard out from the Hermsley spoil ground with soft plastics. Danny found plenty of flathead, estimating he

Really big red: Jason Hoekstra with his 11.65kg snapper from Torquay. caught and released over 40 fish and keeping two, the largest at 64cm. Xavier Knott also did well on soft plastics while drifting on the Leopold spoil grounds. He found many undersize snapper, lost two big fish to pulled hooks and eventually boated a snapper of just over 3kg and another of 4.2kg on the next cast. Gordon Pullen fished the Stingaree Bay spoil grounds for a dozen whiting and a similar number of garfish before deciding to drift for flathead. His decision was rewarded with six nice fish all around 40cm. Last weekend Paul Forbes trekked into Point Lillias where the action started slowly with just a couple of very small flathead. Then the surface erupted, with Paul attaching a small laser lure to catch a salmon better than 1kg on each cast for the best part of an hour. Anglers casting soft plastics along Geelong’s waterfront reported numbers of flathead, especially between Cunningham Pier and the Royal Geelong Yacht Club. Small lures were best, with Turtleback worms in the Pumpkin Green colour best. Surf fishing was limited due to discoloured water. This weekend’s conditions should be back to normal, with the

deep water rock platforms near Lorne or deep gutters on the beaches likely to be hosting gummy shark. Gummies over 10kg were taken from Fairhaven, Collendina and Point Roadknight in the past week. Werribee’s Sergio Tigani heard the eels were biting in the Barwon River, so he tried with worms downstream of Breakwater. He ended up with six nice eels after a two-hour session on Tuesday morning. Lake Ellingamite produced redfin and trout, with trolled lures such as Atomic Shads and SX 40s in the clear versions best. Bait anglers caught fish on both minnow and mudeye. Wurdee Boluc Reservoir remained worthwhile, with quality redfin nudging 1.5kg taken on lures. Casting lures at West Barwon Dam has also been bringing results. The main wall has been good, with anglers advised to use lures that can be worked extremely slowly, such as suspending minnow patterns like Rapala X-raps.

Hart break for players GEELONG travels to Frankston Peninsula this weekend for a one-day premier cricket game to complete the home-and-away season after the first day of play was washed out last week. The Cats are assured of finals action but will still be keen to acquit themselves well and go into next week’s first final with winning form. Jeremy Hart will most likely miss the game as he recovers from a side strain but this could be a bonus because no one will want to be the player making way for him next week. Geelong Cricket Association kicks off its finals series this weekend, with the race for the division one premiership wide open. Grovedale finished on top after another consistent season but won’t have an easy run to next round, with St Joseph’s looming at Osborne Park. In what promises to be one of the most even first-versus-sixth contest in years, Joeys will be confident after already defeating Grovedale this season. While the Tigers look to have more depth, Joeys has enough stars to be an even-money chance. Geelong West plays Lara at Burdoo Reserve and, while the Cats will have winning momentum from last week’s Twenty20 final via a thrilling coin toss, they won’t be favourites if a game of cricket breaks out. Popular flag tip South Barwon plays East Belmont at Stinton Oval. Both teams possess serious talent but might not have the depth of the top two teams. Whichever side’s lesser lights step up to the finals pressure could determine who progresses. Selections: GROVEDALE v St Joseph’s, GEELONG WEST v Lara, South Barwon v EAST BELMONT. Newcomb & District crept into the division two top-six last week with a victory over Bell Park and, while its

Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE reward is a daunting first-up final against top-placed Geelong City at St Albans, at least it has a chance. City has been the class team all season, so it won’t allow complacency to prevent a strong performance. St Alban’s Breakwater finished second and takes on Thomson at Richmond Crescent. While the Tigers have been in good form, but the Saints will have a psychological edge after beating them last game. Murgheboluc plays Waurn Ponds at Grinter Reserve in what looks like being a close game, although if City and St Alban’s Breakwater both win, the game will be of little consequence because both sides will reach the semi final stage anyway. Selections: GEELONG CITY v Newcomb & District, ST ALBAN’S BREAKWATER v Thomson, MURGHEBOLUC v Waurn Ponds. Winchelsea topped the division three ladder and plays Meredith at Lethbridge. Winch has stood tall all season, so its had to see it letting this one slip. Second placed Modewarre takes on Inverleigh at Winchelsea, while third placed Teesdale travels to Little River Reserve to play Lethbridge This will be a thrilling finals series, with all teams legitimate chances of claiming the silverware. Selections: WINCHELSEA v Meredith, MODEWARRE v Inverleigh, TEESDALE v Lethbridge.
