Cops ‘streamline summer staffing’

FUTURE OF RELATIONS PAGE 8

12 PAGES OF HOME IDEAS LIFTOUT INSIDE

BY CHERIE DONNELLAN COASTAL cops have reviewed their summer policing strategy in a bid to improve productivity and streamline services, according Surf Coast’s police service co-ordinator. Senior Sergeant Angelo Ferrara said allocations of additional police for the summer holiday period were yet to be finalised but would be similar to previous years. “Our main concern is to implement intelligent rostering so we’re able to best place police

cars would be priorities for police. “We understand there’s an increase in traffic and holidaymakers are not as familiar with our roads, so there’ll be an emphasis on road policing, particularly on the Great Ocean Road. “We’ll be cracking down on speed, people using mobile phones while driving and drink driving.” Sen Sgt Ferrara said licensed venues would be heavily policed, while “anti-social

members at key locations and times. This will be different to previous years.” Snr Sgt Ferrara confirmed police would continue operating 24-hour services in coastal holiday centres. “We know that coastal resort towns have increased visitor numbers over the summer, so we’ll have firm tasking operations in place.” Sen Sgt Ferrara said road safety issues, liquor licensing laws, drug and alcohol consumption issues and thefts from

BY CHERIE DONNELAN THIRD-YEAR apprentice Saskia Leahy is ready to scorch her competitors to prove she’s a real master chef. The 23-year-old Torquay resident was “really proud” to be one of nine finalists in Restaurant and Catering Victoria’s 2012 Thierry Marx Career Development Award competition. “I can’t believe I’m a finalist,” Ms Leahy said. “I heard about the competition last year but I didn’t feel confident enough to enter (until) I worked at the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival this year and a few chefs I worked with encouraged me to enter. “I also won a second-year apprenticeship award at Gordon last year, so that gave me confidence as well.” Ms Leahy has spent the past two years working under head chef James White’s guidance at Torquay’s Scorched restaurant. “James is really encouraging and supportive – he’s fantastic to work for. He always encourages me to keep learning and to take opportunities like this.” Geelong’s Mary-Jane Barca is also a finalist for her work as a firstyear apprentice at Melbourne’s Crown Culinarium. Two finalists will win a onemonth internship in August to work with the award’s namesake in his Paris restaurant.

behaviour” with drugs or alcohol “wouldn’t be tolerated”. Thefts from motor vehicles were an ongoing concern for police during holiday periods, he said. “We’ll be monitoring the congregation of vehicles left unattended during daytime in coastal car parks. Past operations targeting those areas were successful so we will continue running them.” Sen Sgt Ferrara said the review was part of a statewide initiative to streamline and

improve police services. His confirmation of a continued police presence on the coast during holidays followed reports earlier this week that the force might decrease coastal staffing this summer. Command usually sends reinforcements to the coast in summer, drawing officers from Geelong and other regional centres in Victoria. Bellarine, Geelong police at odds on extra officers – page 5

BY MICHELLE HERBISON STATE Government was “selective and selfserving� in its premature release of Geelong Hospital transfer figures this week, according to the opposition. The Independent received information from Health Minister David Davis’ office this week stating Geelong Hospital’s patient transfer figures were above benchmark rates. The Government’s figures for the three months to the end of March stated that 93 per cent of emergency patients at Geelong Hospital received transfer from ambulances to hospital care in less than 40 minutes. The transfers figure was released about a month ahead of additional data on hospital services for the March quarter. Health Minister David Davis said the latest information “shows the community of Geelong to receive excellent service from their ambulance and hospital�. The Government’s Health Services Performance Report for the December 2011 quarter showed 64 per cent of emergency patients were treated within the benchmark time. Patient transfer rates, at 92.9 per cent in December, were one of Geelong Hospital’s strongest figures in the report. But shadow health minister Gavin Jennings said releasing the positive figures before the complete report failed to “tell the whole story�. “They’re trying to hopefully just sneak out this information and not put it up on the website so you can’t do a cross-reference about how it’s sitting within the performance of the health sector more broadly,� he said. “They’re getting people out of ambulances and into the emergency department pretty quickly but once they get there a major problem

Excellent: David Davis.

is their flow through the system.� Health Department spokesperson Graeme Walker said information about Geelong Hospital’s performance in other areas was unavailable until the “lengthy document� was compiled. “This information was available now so it was released,� he said. The Government had “included a lot more indicators� in its reports than previous governments, Mr Walker said. Ambulance Employees Australia’s Steve McGhie suspected the Government was “playing with figures�. “The hospital is not keeping up with the demand and the volume of patients coming through the door.� Mr McGhie was surprised at the Government’s claim of 93 per cent efficiency because Ambulance Victoria total transfer time figures released under Freedom of Information showed waits of about 14 hours a day. Paramedics were “standing in line� for hours while they waited for hospital staff to take on patient responsibility, he said. “The easy answer to it is if they put in more hospital beds and staff. We want paramedics freed up earlier so they can respond to the next emergency.�

Wanted: Police want to question this man.

Hunt over raid on PO at Highton POLICE have released an image of a man they want to interview over an armed robbery in Highton. Geelong detectives said a man entered a post office in Porter St about 9.44am last Friday, demanding money from a male attendant and saying he had a firearm. The attendant did not see the weapon but handed over “an amount of cash�, the detectives said. The alleged robber put the money in a bag and fled east along Porter St. Nobody was injured. Detectives said the man was described as in his mid-30s, Caucasian and about 178cm to 188cm with a medium to solid build, dark hair and an unshaven face. The detectives asked anyone with information to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or to visit crimestoppers .com.au.

Bike clubs ‘split’ over Barrabool track plan BY CHERIE DONNELLAN GEELONG dirt bike clubs are divided over Motorcycling Australia plans for new facilities at its Barrabool track. Residents have also criticised the motorsport organisation’s plan to build new clubrooms and widen the track at the Haines Rd facility. Sporting Motorcycle Club’s Cameron Dixon said he and several members had objected to the plans for McAdam Park, fearing complaints from residents would force authorities to close the track “altogether”. Mr Dixon said Motorcycling Australia failed to consult the club before submitting a planning application to Surf Coast Shire. He was concerned the plan had fur-

ther angered Barrabool Rural Protection Group as it continued fighting the development. “The neighbours seem okay with the current facilities but are against any new facilities and we’re concerned they’ll kick up and we’ll lose the facilities we’ve currently got.” Mr Dixon said the objecting riders wanted a second track in the region to reduce use of the Barrabool track to keep the residents’ group “happy”. But Motorcycling Australia chief executive officer David White said a second track was “unnecessary”. “The McAdam Park facility is capable of hosting both (Sporting Motorcycle Club and Geelong Motocross Club). It makes far more

economic sense for the clubs to be at one venue.” Mr White said the proposed clubrooms at Barrabool were “adequate for both clubs to share”. Geelong Motocross Club was forced to relocate to McAdam Park in 2006 after complaints from residents and development of plans for a new Breakwater Bridge on part of the site. Club secretary Mark West said motocross riders were “committed” to staying in Barrabool. “We made a commitment three years ago with the support of City of Greater Geelong (COGG) to be located at Barrabool. “That commitment was the underlying factor for State Government to pro-

vide one million dollars of funding to save the Barrabool track (in 2009). Without that money and Geelong Motocross Club’s commitment to Barrabool the land would have been sold. “The Sporting Motorcycle Club couldn’t come up with the money to buy the land in 2009, so without help from us, City of Greater Geelong, State Government and Surf Coast Shire they wouldn’t have any facilities.” Mr West said the City’s initial proposal of an Avalon site was “not viable”. “It’s now definitely come to light that Avalon Airport management doesn’t support that site.”

City Freemasons allow ‘first peek’ into secret realm BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN THE “INSTALLATION” of a Freemasons lodge master will go public for the first time in Geelong next week. The new Master of Geelong Lodge of Unity and Prudence, Mick Alexander, said the organisation would “reveal its secrets” as part of the ceremony. He said the event would include the inaugural visit of Freemasons Victoria Grand Master Bob Jones to Geelong, the second oldest lodge in Victoria. Mr Alexander said the public was invited to the event, including an explanation of the symbolism and practices of Freemasonry. When not at the lodge, Mr Alexander is a financial advisor and mortgage broker. Mr Alexander said a common perception of the men-only organisation as a secret society was exaggerated. “My goal as master this year is to put Freemansonry on the same level as other service clubs, like Rotary or Lions. “We’re no different to those organisations. We just do it a little more quietly.” Mr Alexander said the 61-member Geelong lodge had donated $5500 to various local causes in the past year, including three year 12 scholarships. He admitted the organisation was “starting behind the eight ball” in changing community perceptions. Freemasonry was increasingly “intriguing” to young men, he said, with enquiries up from one or two a year to four or more. “They’re looking for a social network where they can be themselves without expectations. “We have no religious connotations, even though we borrow from the Bible. “The Lodge initiated a member of the Islamic faith into the lodge recently and has now included the Koran as a volume of the lodge.” The open installation of the master will be at the Regent St, Belmont, Masonic Centre from 4pm on June 9. Mr Alexander asked anyone wanting more information to phone Graham Berry on 0419 403 651.

in brief Kinder supported CONTROVERSIAL plans for a new early learning centre in a public park at Barwon Heads have earned 70 per cent support in a submissions process, according to a council statement. Council said it received about 730 submissions, with 508 favouring the proposal for Village Park and 223 expressing opposition.

Crime surge ROBBERIES and assaults surged in Geelong during the 12 months to the end of March, according to new police figures. The Victoria Police statistics showed robbery was up 49 per cent, assault 20, with Chief Commander Ken Lay suggesting financial hardship might be behind the statewide increases.

Storages up THE REGION’S water storages have climbed to 72.4 per cent capacity after heavy rain in the region late last week. Barwon Water recorded a .8 per cent increase and 37.8mm of rain for the week to Wednesday, with storages capacity similar to the same time last year.

Racing boost A PERMANENT broadcast facility will “better showcase” horse racing in Geelong, a State Government minister has announced. Racing Minister Denis Napthine said the new facility would replace a temporary marquee to improve coverage of “top-quality” events at Geelong’s racecourse.

Canberra contingent TORQUAY and Ocean Grove primary school staff have joined a Victorian “contingent” in Canberra “to celebrate Public Education Day”, according to a communications firm. Essential Media said the two-day trip included attending an Australian Education Union forum and meeting Corangamite MP Darren Cheeseman about his commitment to school funding recommendations.

Parks award A GEELONG trial program encouraging medical patients to use parks to improve their health has won a national award, organisers have announced. International Parks Management and Leadership Conference gave the program an excellence award for its “extensive stakeholder engagement, strong buy-in with local organisations and…robust sustainability framework”.

Projects funded A STATE Government funding injection has boosted plans for a $16 million child centre at Leopold, according to Member for South Barwon Andrew Katos. He said the Government had granted $1.5 million to the Leopold Community and Children’s Centre project while two Bell Post Hill and Geelong West early learning projects would receive $300,000 each.

Images recognised CONVERSION of historic pictures to digital images has earned Geelong Heritage Centre recognition in an annual Sir Rupert Hamer Records Management Awards. Councillor Cameron Granger said the centre won a community archives category for a project to safeguard and make available for public inspection its “priceless collection of historic images”.

Fagg’s boss set to run for mayor

Uncomfortable: Inspector Gary Bruce at Wednesday’s meeting. Picture: Tommy Ritchie

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN THE LATEST entrant to Geelong’s directly elected mayoral race has welcomed more candidates putting up their hands. Fagg’s Mitre 10 director Keith Fagg said he would make a formal announcement in a few weeks. But Mr Fagg said a field of nominations would be healthy. “If there are good candidates considering standing for mayor it would offer Geelong a broader choice,” he said. Incumbent Mayor John Mitchell is the only other candidate to have nominated so far. Mr Fagg said he was not running against Cr Mitchell but for the position of mayor. Directly electing a mayor was a “significant opportunity” for Geelong, he said. “If a candidate for directly elect-

staff the area with “similar numbers” but would consider “tasking them another way”. He suggested some police could be based in Geelong and travel to Bellarine Peninsula towns on busy days. “They’ll then perform road policing duties as soon as they leave the station.” Insp Bruce said he might favour a program asking police from other areas to “sell back their leave” to work on the coast over summer rather than simply transferring staff from other areas. “If they’re coming from somewhere else it shrinks the period they’re able to take leave so it can reduce capacity at their stations.” Insp Bruce questioned whether previous arrangements were efficient. “The issue is whether they are gainfully employed when they go down there,” he said.

Health chief blogs on performance BY MICHELLE HERBISON BARWON Health’s chief executive officer has turned to social media to “demystify” his organisation’s performance. David Ashbridge said his blog allowed him to personally explain performance data. “I have the opportunity to clarify and provide local context around how information applies specifically to Barwon Health.”

Dr Ashbridge wanted to clarify misinterpretations in some media coverage. “It’s not my intention to be a parallel media source but, to understand some data, I need to provide the background.” One of his blog posts this week responded to figures for cancer surgery waiting times published on Federal Government’s MyHospitals website.

“Without context, the Geelong community could form the view that…Geelong Hospital is not performing as well as other hospitals. This is not the case,” he wrote. Dr Ashbridge planned to continue posting on bhceo.org.au at least weekly. He had “been fairly diligent” in personally replying to comments on the blog, he said.

but we’ll see how things pan out,” “Some people have been policing down here for eight, nine, 15 years. It’s hard to teach old dogs new tricks, especially blokes who’ve been policing in small towns for a long time,” he said. Sen Sgt Magher said financing police was “one of the main issues” but he had requested Geelong police to provide the same additional staff on the peninsula as in the past. Last year police command stationed four extra officers at Ocean Grove, two at Portarlington and Queenscliff and one at Drysdale. “What we’ve had in the past has always worked,” Sen Sgt Magher said. “I think there’s always room for improvement and if someone’s got a better idea I’ll listen to it but adopting to change is always difficult to deal with.” Insp Bruce said he planned to

401121-JM10-10

BY MICHELLE HERBISON THE REGION’S top cop has sparked a rift with Bellarine Peninsula police over plans for staffing the area over summer. Insp Gary Bruce said a meeting with officers-in-charge from Ocean Grove, Drysdale, Queenscliff and Portarlington this week revealed most were “not convinced” of his plans for a staffing overhaul. Insp Bruce said he was reviewing the way police resourced the Bellarine Peninsula over busy summer months to ensure efficiency. “I’m certainly not comfortable with some of the arrangements in place in the past.” But Bellarine Police’s Senior Sergeant David Magher said the meeting to discuss the peninsula’s requirements revealed a rift. “The majority of the meeting (participants) aren’t convinced yet

“major thought” into campaign costs. The Independent reported two weeks ago that a mayoral campaign would cost up to $250,000. “It’ll be nothing like that from my point of view. I don’t believe in large presidential-style campaigns. “I’ll simply explain who I am and my vision in the most cost effective way. “There will be some costs but large campaigns are not my style and it will be self-funded.” Mr Fagg said the direct mayoral election was “new territory” for everyone involved. “We’re reaping the benefits of the hard work of those who held office previously. I see this as being the next stage, as a custodian of that responsibility and adding my own impetus to it. “I’m a strong believer in undercommitting and over-delivering.

‘Loopholes’ in new pokie bill Trezise said. His main concern was that the new laws failed to prohibit cashaccess devices requiring staff involvement. “That seems to be the exception to the prohibition on cash withdrawal devices. If a member of staff is involved then for some reason then that device is excluded from the ban. “I’m concerned the bill will do little or nothing to halt the rapid move to the use of EFTPOS in venues. The concern is that gamblers can access those devices as easily as they would an ATM.” Mr Trezise said loopholes could undermine the aim of the

Mr Trezise said he would tackle problem gambling issues in his new role on the board of Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation. The foundation’s mandate was to reduce problems and improve responsible behaviours in gambling. The foundation has funding of $150 million over four years, Mr Trezise said.

BY MICHELLE HERBISON SOCIETY will embrace reconciliation more deeply with the next generation, according to a spokesman for the region’s Aboriginal community. Wathaurong Aboriginal Cooperative’s David Tournier attributed education in Aboriginal issues to creating “more-open-minded” young people. Mr Tournier made his prediction before leading a “walk and talk” session in the You Yangs National Park as part of Reconciliation Week. “We’ll get a lot further when the older generation in politics retires,” Mr Tournier said. “The older ones have limited knowledge of the issues because the teaching profession wasn’t interested in looking at Aboriginal studies back then. Hopefully there’ll be a change when those younger ones start to stand up and take over.” Mr Tournier said Reconciliation Week was about “coming together to reconcile past differences”.

“I think the general population needs to be made aware of the atrocities and government policy that was forced upon us. We need to try to make the community aware of these issues so they don’t happen again.” Mr Tournier taught participants on the weekend walk about the Aboriginal culture, heritage and modern uses of the area. The session included tea and damper for participants while he told stories of Geelong’s history and about the You Yangs. “The co-op has been interested in doing tourism for a long time,” he said. Mr Tournier estimated that Geelong’s Aboriginal community had between 2500 and 3000 members, comprising about 2.5 per cent of Geelong’s total population. “Here in Victoria we’re not as much of a noticeable Aboriginal community. The stereotype of stuff is not necessarily the case these days.”

Players giving study a leg-up “Player injuries like knee reconstructions can have significant long-term effects. “Essentially, this is a series of exercises aimed at preventing injuries that can be included into existing training drills. “The program has a warm-up component with an emphasis on specific hamstring injury prevention exercises. There are also groin strength exercises as part of an aim to build core strength. “We have a number of jumping, landing and change-of-direction activities. “Research shows poor technique in this area is a risk factor for knee and ankle injuries.” Mr Donaldson said Footy First was working with Football Geelong to evaluate the program’s effectiveness in injury prevention. Ballarat Football League and Southern Metropolitan Football League are also participating in the study.

Mr Donaldson said long-serving former Geelong Cats club doctor Hugh Seward was an associate investigator on the research team. Dr Seward would act as a link between the research study and AFL medical officers. “We also have a mentors program with human movement and sports science trained people acting as mentors at local clubs,” Mr Donaldson said. “Footy First is under a local advisory group including club coaches and strength and conditioning staff.” Mr Donaldson said the program aimed to have online video resources available soon. Ocean Grove Football Club senior coach Cam McGregor said the club was keen to be involved. “We had a run of hamstring injuries and we’re keen to find ways of reducing that incidence,” he said.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A HIGH-LEVEL study is investigating Geelong and Bellarine league footballers in a bid to reduce the severity and number of leg injuries in their sport, researchers have revealed. They said the Footy First study had recruited 17 of the leagues’ 22 clubs as part of the pilot program. The program could be rolled out statewide and then nationally if successful. Monash University’s Australian Centre for Research into Injury in Sport and its Prevention is conducting the study with support from the AFL and State Government. Researcher Alex Donaldson said the program aimed to transfer lessons learned at the elite level to weekend warriors. “Leg injuries are the numberone issue for local footy because they really affect the performance of the club,” Mr Donaldson said.

Car crash led to fine for ‘Kronic’ MICHELLE HERBISON POLICE believe Geelong has recorded possibly its first charge for possession of synthetic cannabis Kronic since it became illegal last year. Magistrate Stephen Myall gave Bradley McCooke, of Alsop St, Belmont, a 12-month good behaviour bond for possession of synthetic cannabinoids after police found the drug in his abandoned car after a crash. The court heard police initially believed the drugs in McCooke’s car were cannabis but a spot test identified them as Kronic. McCooke accepted responsibility, telling police “if it’s Kronic it might be mine”. McCooke had crashed his car into a fence while driving a friend home about 5.45am on September 12. McCooke’s defence said the prosecution had no evidence McCooke was speeding but the road was wet. He was relying on his passenger’s directions and turned “too late”, the court heard. McCooke appeared in court clean-shaven and wearing a suit. Mr Myall fined him $850 and suspended his driver’s licence for one month.

‘Repos’ on waterfront ‘Buyers’ market’ as properties seized

Opportunities: NMD Data’s John Kovacs.

GEELONG’S waterfront was among residential areas to record rising mortgagee repossessions last year, according to a property data company. Geelong-based National Mortgagee Deceased Data (NMD Data) also recorded increasing repossessions at Grovedale, Belmont, Waurn Ponds, Leopold, Hamlyn Heights, Corio and Norlane. Coastal towns in the region to record increases were Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads, Queenscliff, Anglesea, Apollo Bay and Lorne. NMD Data also noted rising repossessions at Lara, Bannockburn and Meredith. Company owner and operator John Kovacs said NMD Data listed over 9000 mortgagee repossessions nationally, with 130 in the greater

Geelong area. The properties covered all types, including residential and commercial buildings and vacant land, he said. Mr Kovacs, who worked in real estate for 30 years before establishing NMD Data, said repossessed property presented opportunities in Australia’s “buyer’s market”. Repossessed properties could be bought “well-below market value”, he said. “In today’s market 10 to 30 per cent is achievable” Mr Kovacs said repossessed properties also presented a “more-affordable” option for first-time buyers. He noted that Geelong and Surf Coast properties in general were reflecting national price “instabilities”. “Statistics from RP Data show

that median house prices across Geelong, the peninsula and Surf Coast have fallen between four and 22 per cent in the March quarter,” Mr Kovacs said. “Nationally, only 373,000 sales were recorded last year, down 25 per cent from the decade average and sitting at a 16-year low. “This year is expected to be no better, with interest rates scaring off most buyers.” Mr Kovacs said house prices were falling at a “steady rate” in the Geelong region, commercial property was also down but units were up. “Vacant land in Geelong has seen positive growth because Melburnians consider Geelong as a stronger, more-affordable option to build their dream home.”

‘New leadership’ for city chamber GEELONG Chamber of Commerce has a new management team after “the recent stepping down” of former director Mark Davis after less than a month as president. The chamber said Jim Walsh, who Mr Davis had replaced as president, would continue serving on the management team with executive officer Bernadette Uzelac. Ms Uzelac said Mr Davis left due to “personal reasons”. The Independent reported his appointments on May 11. The chamber said new management team members included architect Mark Sanders, public relations and marketing professional Kylie Warne and banker John Fitzgerald. Mr Sanders said leading the chamber as its new president was an “honour”. “The chamber is committed to supporting member businesses and corporate partners,” he said. “This in turn will ensure that Geelong is regarded as a vibrant and innovative region in which to operate a business and to reside. “Geelong, like other local and international economies, is facing future challenges but also significant opportunities. The chamber will play an increasingly crucial role as the voice of small and medium business for the region.” The chamber revealed the management team announcement with plans for a “business super conference” on August 23. The chamber said international fashion designer Alex Perry and Australian futurist Peter Ellyard would address the conference in “one of the first major initiatives” under the new executive team. More information about the August 23 conference would be released “in coming days”, the chamber said.

“People bring produce in from their gardens and members can purchase it. I suppose it’s cutting out the middleman and giving people a greater degree of confidence in the food product.” The group holds regular field trips, recently visiting a local olive producer.

THE TERM organic has become something of a divisive issue. But not for the 100 or so members of Geelong Organic Gardeners. Perhaps a better description of what the club pursues is natural gardening, with the absence of articifial inducements. Club president Steve Findlay said the club members gardened “as organically as possible”. “Basically, we grow free of chemicals and articifial fertilisers in our food and soil preparation,” Steve explained. “There is certainly an interest in the community in having more control over food and whats going into it. “Our membership is swelling and it’s become a really diverse group with varying degrees of knowledge. “We are what we eat but we have to get our soils healthy again, for instance by introducing good compost and mulch. Healthy soils mean healthy plants. “We reinforce the message about the degradation we have done to the land over the years and how it can affect our health through the foods we produce. “People are looking for alternative farming practices and going back to buy from farmers markets or from the farm gate.” Steve said the group aimed to cater for the wide range of interests, mainly by increasing garden knowledge. “We have some people who are very experienced who are happy to share their knowledge but it’s up to each individual to use it as they see fit.” The club has a seed bank to

The Independent, Friday June 1, 2012


A LETTER in the May 16 Independent from Stretch Kontelj, a councillor and a qualified solicitor, could have been construed as an attempt to subvert the process of law by using the media to deliver not justice but political advantage. He should have known better. As a person in a position of experience and knowledge, he used his position to support conviction of Craig Thomson before investigations were complete. Unless Cr Kontelj was part of the investigation he would not have seen the alleged evidence, so therefore he presented a preconceived opinion influenced by unproven media speculation. I am not interested in the guilt of either Mr Thomson or Peter Slipper until the legal process has completed its course but both have become victims of media judgments. My interest is the delivery of justice without fear or prejudice, so I am concerned delivery of unbiased justice might be impossible as a result of the actions of the media and politicians. How would you feel if the victim accused of illegal or corrupt behaviour was found to be innocent? How would you feel about destroying a person’s reputation or health or those of their family? It wouldn’t do much for your credibility. Media investigations do have a place. However, once an issue to be investigated is established it should be then delegated to appropriate authorities for investigation and possible prosecution. I believe that Cr Kontelj has lost sight of these principles and made an error of judgement. John Wilson Norlane

A fine situation TRAFFIC fines and their penalties have been in the news lately. The sheriff and other associated bodies have been blitzing supposedly offending motorists and clamping their cars until they produce the money. These fines and penalties have been

unlawfully imposed because the supposed authorities imposing them do not have that authority. City of Greater Geelong is a corporation, so it lacks appropriate legal standing to fine anybody. A corporation is a private, profit-making entity and cannot issue fines, as attested by a recent Supreme Court of Victoria judgement, published as a public notice on April 25. As an example, I often go to a store where I might have a complementary coffee. If I drink too many I might be asked to leave but the management cannot fine me. Similarly, City of Greater Geelong unlawfully charges motorists rent in the form of parking fees for leaving their cars on roads that the City does not own. When I overstay my welcome the City attempts to penalise me with a fine but, being a private company, has no right to do so because, as I have mentioned in previous letters, it does not have constitutional recognition and is therefore not a body of the requisite legal standing. Council has no authority to charge rates, which are a property tax, as the mayor has admitted in this very paper, nor to impose fines and charges of any sort. The sooner readers realise this the longer their pockets will remain full. Gary Oraniuk Geelong West

Global cooling ACCORDING to Russian scientists from the Physics University of the Russian Academy of Science, global warming is coming to an end. They say that in the coming years the temperature over the entire planet will fall and temperatures will continue to decline. The process of a general temperature decrease has already begun, according to the research. After having peaked in 2005, the average temperature on Earth is now returning to the level of 1996 to 1997, which was .3C lower. According to the Russian scientists, global temperatures will fall another .15C by 2015, which corresponds to the climate of the early 1980s.

There is no impending climate warming catastrophe. No doubt Tim Flannery, Greg Combet, James Hansen and Al Gore will be happy to hear the latest good news. Now climate scientists can go back to the old narrative of the early 1980s that Earth is cooling, which is to be feared much more than a slight global warming. Alan Barron Grovedale

Let Avalon fly LINFOX Airports chief David Fox is entitled to be miffed about Avalon’s failure to gain an international terminal given the company’s courage in putting money into the airport and being stymied by three tiers of governance. As it stands, Avalon is going nowhere because talk is cheap and the walk continues to be placed in the too-hard basket. Given its vision and ground-breaking actions, Linfox will move forward, enabling Avalon to obtain international flight status and allied cash flow from a labour-intensive DFO outlet. While Victorian Aviation Minister Gordon Phillips and Geelong Mayor John Mitchell remain upbeat, on the ground and in the real world David Fox calls as it is: stagnation and a joke. One needs to take on board the flip side. While Federal Govenment claims Avalon’s international exclusion is due to complex immigration issues and, yes, there are boxes to tick, readers need to be aware that, for example, Melbourne Airport Corporation lobbyists are intent on not given a secondary provincial player a gig. It’s important that MPs Richard Marles and Darren Cheeseman are repeatedly led, by the nose if necessary, to Canberra and further afield to potential airline players and investors to get Avalon over the hump. The market will then determine Avalon’s place in the scheme of commercial activities. Linfox at present is faced with a bum steer continuum. Three tiers of impotent movers and shakers and others surfing on their coattails need to abandon their comfort zone status. Richard Worland Manifold Heights

Foolish language caught out I WAS interested to read a story in the May 25 Independent announcing that Geelong would host a World Vintage Cricket Carnival in 2014. In general, the details provided were informative and positive about the benefits the carnival would bring to Geelong. Nevertheless, it disturbed me that the writer described the participants as “flannelled fools”, a quite derogatory term and not in the mode of a welcom-

ing cordial invitation, which no doubt the organisers and council would wish used to promote such an event. Was the Independent wishing to promote discrimination and aiming at the lowest common denominator with use of such language? I believe our community deserves better. Gwen Whittingham Grovedale

Top of class in summer of ’59 BY CHERIE DONNELLAN ON DECEMBER 4, 1956, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis and Johnny Cash had an impromptu jam session in a Memphis recording studio. But what if Buddy Holly and other ’50s rock ‘n’ roll stars had been present too? That was the question Mario Agius pondered before creating stage show The Class of ’59. “In the old days you’d have one of the big names like Elvis play on a bill as the main act but I thought ‘What if we had the big names play in a super band?’” Agius told the Independent. The show is set in Australia in January, 1959 as eight legends of music tour the countryside while battling each other for the title of rock ‘n’ roll king. An all-Australian cast features in the roles of Elvis, Buddy Holly, Johnny Cash, Bill Haley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Eddie Cochran and The Big Bopper. Some of the troupe has previous experience with their characters.

Scott Cameron appeared as Buddy Holly in London’s West End, Anthony Petrucci won 2005 talent competition Star Struck for his Elvis impersonations and Daniel Thompson has played Johnny Cash in a concert series last year. Agius said the cast came across in character “very convincingly”. “Cassidy (Wilson) is great as his character, Jerry Lee Lewis. He’s actually a school theatre teacher by day, so he understands the art of performance. “Grant (Carruthers who plays the Bill Haley) is an accomplished musician who plays the saxophone, guitar, keyboard, upright bass and he sings. It’s incredible to watch. “Then we’ve got the baby of the band, Simon (O’Connor). He fits playing the Big Bopper so well. “He’s a great drummer and a music technician – he’s actually looked after some great Australian touring bands - and he’s a bit of a character (in real life).” Agius said Carruthers was wellversed in the persona of “rebel rocker” Eddie Cochran.

“(Carruthers) looks after our ambulances in Queensland. He’s played Cochran many times and it’s like he just becomes his character.” Agius said Geelong Performing Arts Centre would host one of the casts’ 32 shows on tour. “Geelong is actually a crazy place for us. They (crowds) don’t let us go home and ask for encore after encore, it’s great. “After the show we do a meetand-greet with the audience and we always have some really great people. People even dress up as Elvis or the others and we’ve had a few people bring in photos of them with the characters we’re playing. “The boys just think their rock stars because of the positive audience responses we always get. “What I love the most though is that it’s a show everyone can enjoy. We’ve had three generations in one family come to see the show and they all loved it.” The performing arts centre will host The Class of 59 next Friday.

Firing up over gazebos, huts wide range of outdoor living options is available from Geelong Wood Fired Ovens besides its famous cooking gear.The locally owned and operated family business also provides a fantastic range of gazebos and Bali huts. Co-owner Belinda Craig says the entire gazebo range will be 15 per cent off for the month of June. Geelong Wood Fired Ovens supplies and installs Colorbond gazebos and thatched roof Bali huts in a variety of sizes and options including bars, plantation shutters and skylights. Belinda says the business also offers a range of gazebos compliant with all pool and spa regulations, including self-closing gates, avoiding the need for further fencing. The all-Australian made gazebos range in size from two-by-two metres up to four-by-five metres. All gazebos and huts are constructed with western red cedar posts and a free staining offer is also available. Belinda says the gazebos and huts come with easy-to-read instructions allowing do-it-yourself installation. “One of the benefits of our gazebos and huts is that they’re free-standing, so you don’t have to have footings. “They can simply be placed onto decks, paved areas or existing concrete.” The Bali huts have a pre-thatched roof frame in easy-to-install panels, while the Colourbond gazebos have dome skylights. Both ranges can also include full or halfheight western red cedar plantation shutters for extra protection and privacy. Geelong Wood Fired Ovens can complete any outdoor living picture with a range of bamboo fencing and corrugated garden beds. More information is available by phoning Geelong Wood Fired Ovens on 0412 592 911.

Jim open with lounge bargains familiar face in Geelong’s furniture trade has established Just Lounges, the region’s newest lounge showroom. Jim Rendevski brings his 40 years of experience in the furniture trade to his Geelong-owned-and-operated outlet. Just Lounges is an authorised LaZ-Boy clearance outlet, offering topbrand quality at discount prices. “We will have different La-Z-Boy stock in all the time, so that means bargains all year round,” Jim says. “Customers still have a choice of leather or fabric and we will specialise in recliners.” La-Z-Boy invented the reclining chair and has been perfecting it for more than 70 years. The comfort and durability of LaZ-Boy recliners have made them the preferred reclining choice for generations. Featuring innovative quality construction, the finest materials and wear-tested fabrics, they have earned their place in the home. Jim says Just Lounges stocks LaZ-Boy electric lift chairs electric, designed for people with lower mobility. The La-Z-Boy Luxury Lift chair features a patented enclosed mechanism combining the luxury of a fully reclining upholstered chair, with a lifting function. The lift chair helps any adult up to 150kg to their feet when leaving the chair, using a five-button handset. Jim says Just Lounges also stocks a variety of sofas, chairs, modular furniture and two or three seater lounges. Just Lounges is open 10am to 4pm Monday to Friday or by appointment at 23 Gordon Ave, Geelong West, phone 5242 8484.

With more moderate usage, spending the money now on a suitably sized solar system could mean that’s all you need to spend over the period, saving a massive amount over time. “These days those sorts of returns can be a lot more lucrative than shares. Our customers are realising it’s not a matter of whether they can afford solar power but can they afford not to.” Locally owned and operated, City to Surf Solar covers Geelong, the Bellarine Peninsula and Surf Coast. The business uses a variety of high-quality products to suit every situation and budget. City to Surf Solar’s experienced, Clean Energy Council-

accredited team carries out all installations. The team has been installing solar power systems for almost four years, with over 20 years experience in the industry. City to Surf Solar now also offers off-grid solutions. Excellent customer service is assured, with all paperwork completed for clients to make the process as simple as possible. A post-installation maintenance service ensures all systems work to their full potential.

eware carbon monoxide – it is a silent killer. A warning to homeowners who have gas heating regarding the dangers of carbon monoxide. It is a poison you can’t smell or taste but can be given off by your heater without you even knowing it. There have been a number of deaths from carbon monoxide poisoning in Victoria in the last few years. Energy Safe Victoria is aware of countless near misses where people have nearly died from carbon monoxide poisoning. It is mainly faulty or unserviced gas heaters which can cause carbon monoxide to be produced. Energy Safe Victoria and the Plumbing Industry Commission recommend that gas heating be serviced by a licensed or registered gasfitter before the start of winter.

Effectively, the incentive for feeding power back to the grid might only be available for households installing solar installed by as soon as the end of the year. City to Surf Solar director Christian Pritchett advises households to be quick. “Acting by the end of the year will allow enough time to make the most of the Transitional Feed-In Tariff so it contributes to offsetting the cost of your system before the rate is reduced to probably less than 10 cents after 2016.” Christian anticipates a shift to hybrid systems incorporating batteries after government incentives eventually disappear. “Solar power is a long-term prospect, with solid returns of up

RENOVATIONS aren’t always as troublesome as some reality TV shows suggest. Some of the most important areas to tackle are windows, which typically let in most of the summer Sun’s heat but let winter warmth inside the house escape. The traditional way to fix this is to replace the glass with either double-glazing or low-E glass but both solutions are complex, messy and expensive. TintMaster has a revolutionary window film called Enerlogic, which matches double-glazing performance in winter and improves summer energy efficiency as well as blocking out UV that faces furnishings. In one day TintMaster can transform windows without construction mess, hassles or disruptions for about a quarter the cost of double-glazing. Enerlogic’s patent-pending coating redirects solar and radiant energy back to their source for major energy savings in every season. The coating is embedded in an optically clear transparent film that is quickly and cleanly applied to the inside of the windows. It’s also guaranteed for 10 years - longer than glass replacement. With Enerlogic installed, homes consume less energy year round to save on energy bills and natu-

TintMaster’s Dave Kershaw. ral resources. Unlike new glass and other energy-intensive products, Enerlogic is carbon neutral within three months, meaning it saves more energy in this time than it takes to produce the film in the first place. From then on the environment wins. More information is available at website www.enerlogicfilm.com or by phoning TintMaster on 5221 8877.

llClear Leafguard protects homes from fire and flooding. Made from Colorbond® steel, Leafguard prevents leaves blocking gutters, which creates fire hazards and the risk of water damage. Ron Lienert developed AllClear Leafguard after 20 years in the home improvement business, including many spent working with other similar products. “I saw a need for a good leafguard and was able to evolve a successful formula,” Ron says. His guard provides protection for properties during bushfire season. “One of the ways home owners can be prepared is by ensuring their gutters are free of leaves and debris that could easily catch on fire, leading to flames to the body of your home.” Because AllClear Leafguard is made from the same material as gutters, it won’t melt in fire or perish or become brittle, so it continues stopping embers and burning leaves getting under roofs. “When there are no leaves on the roof or in the gutter there is nothing to burn so the embers just sit and then go out,” Ron says. “Fire prone areas are being urged to get their gutters fitted with metal leafguards to protect against potential bush fires. It is for this reason that the AllClear Leafguard can safely give you an amazing 20-year warranty.” AllClear Leafguard also helps prolong the life of household gut-

ridge Room’s convenient gourmet meals are sure to satisfy lunchtime hunger pangs. Owner Con Petropoulos says the café uses top quality ingredients to create gourmet sandwiches and daily specials. “You can eat a good lunch for under $10 that will actually sustain you.” Con says his salmon sandwiches are made with four slices of salmon and his egg sandwiches contain three eggs. “It’s like a sandwich on steroids,” he jokes. Fish and steaks are some of the chef-cooked meals customers can enjoy from a special menu that changes regularly. A 200g porterhouse steak with chips or salad is under $15. “Our food is convenient because you can have it within 10 to 15 minutes of ordering but the difference is it’s a proper home-style meal, not a takeaway,” Con says. He wants Geelong people to know Bridge Room has a relaxed, family-friendly environment. Perched in the flyover above Yarra St in Westfield Geelong, Bridge Room delivers great views of the bay. “It’s a great place to come on the weekend then stroll to the shops or waterfront,” Con says. Bridge Room Express kiosk is perfect for people in a rush who still want to enjoy the quality of Bridge Room’s food and award-winning coffee without sacrificing the quality. Con says the express service is one of the only places in Geelong selling premium Italian gelato. The two are open seven days from 8am to 5.30pm Monday to Thursday, until 9pm Friday and to 5pm weekends. For information call 5222 8700.

o change a life is not easy. But Renato’s story will inspire everyone to achieve their best regardless of their circumstances. Renato came to MBS Fitness weighing 105kg, depressed and with life-threatening self-esteem issues. MBS trained Renato physically and mentally for just under six months. He lost 31.6kg to finish at 73.4kg, with his body fat reduced from 26 per cent to just eight per cent. Renato trained five times a week under the guidance of MBS Fitness director Matthew Critchley. Renato’s training gym regime featured structured programs incorporating resistance, high intensity interval and FCT45 group training as well as aqua recovery programs. Before the process began Matthew and Renato undertook a lot of work together to strengthen Renato’s mind, making him see it was worth the effort to become healthier and to understand himself and his beliefs. Matthew even went to the extent of designing a visual affirmation routine for Renato to complete each morning in the mirror and prescribing DVDs and audio clips to assist with motivation, self-esteem and staying focused on his goals. Renato’s nutrition was overhauled, breaking down all meals,

dramatically while, most importantly, overcoming his depression and self-esteem issues. Now living a healthy, balanced lifestyle, he is committed to talking about his own experiences with depression, self-esteem and weight gain to inspire others.

Think food first when acting on BMI ver the past few years the BMI, body mass index, has been used as a screening tools for measuring levels of obesity. Unfortunately, many are confused as to what BMI is and how it is calculated. There is now a waist-to-height ratio that obesity experts in the UK say is a better screening tool rather than waist circumference alone. At a European Congress on obesity, findings showed that the waist-to-height ratio was a more accurate indicator of cardiovascular disease, hypertension and diabetes. It has also been considered the best indicator of health related to weight, hence National Heart Foundation has recommended this method also. The waist-to-height ratio is calculated by a person’s height divided by two. This is the desired maximum measurement for the waist considered to be healthy. A step in the right direction to good health is to look at the food pyramid. We need to dis-

Swami’s guide Meet Swamiji to inner peace in Geelong Friday 8th & Sat 9th June

wami Shankarananda, or Swamiji, is the founder of Shiva School of Meditation and Yoga, author of best-seller Happy For No Good Reason and one of Australia’s leading teachers of Meditation and contemporary spirituality. He has guided students such as Garry McDonald, Debbie Flintoff-King and Geelong’s own Angie Hilton. On June 8 and 9 he will visit Geelong for the second time by demand. His message is simple: “Peace and clarity exist within every person. Through meditation and selfInquiry we can learn to find it. “We are then less dependent on events in order to be happy. Happiness can arise naturally from within.” Early last year Swamiji asked experienced and trained students Swami Atmananda and Durga Ma to teach in Geelong. They have taught and counseled many people in meditation and a unique form of self-inquiry called Shiva Process. Meditation and self-inquiry are practical methods anyone can use. Increasingly recognised as powerful antidotes for the anxiety and depression, Swamiji’s Shiva Process method is studied and recommended by psychologists, doctors and sports professionals

From engine idle speed the mechanical, engine-powered supercharger delivers more than 1.0 bar of relative boost pressure. The supercharger is situated upstream of the exhaust-driven turbocharger. The transition between the two systems, supercharger and turbocharger is gradual and seamless, with both blowers working together at times. The A1 Sport delivers performance by the bucketful. The steering is direct and highly responsive to every driver movement. The DSG transmission works best when pushed. Where the car comes into its own is on tight bends where it is possible to throw the car around while remaining in full control. The other A1 variants come with either a lower-powered version of the same engine, a 1.4-litre turbocharged unit that produces 90 kilowatts of power and 200 Newton metres of torque and also a 1.6-litre TDI turbodiesel. We’ve yet to test the latter engine but have been in the smaller petrol unit. It takes advantage of the latest in turbo and direct-injection technology to produce its 200 Nm of torque all the way from 1500 to 4000 rpm. In other words, almost all drivers will have the engine at its torque peak all the time to get the greatest efficiency from it. The engine has an official fuel consumption rating of only 5.3 litres per hundred kilometres. On the open road we were again impressed by the quality of the ride and handling from the standard A1. While coarse-chip surfaces do let a fair bit of noise into the cabin the Audi is no worse than many other small European cars. We were impressed with the visibility permitted to the front/side by the clever design of the windscreen pillars. Though these pillars look substantial enough to provide strength in a big crash, their shape means the driver suffers minimum inconvenience on twisting roads. Anyone looking for style and class in a prestigious car should certainly be taking a look at this cute little A1 from Audi.

2005 PEUGOT 407 ST TOURING EXECUTIVE

go

BY ERIC BLAIR he Audi A1 is a stylish little three-door hatchback that’s aimed at the young and trendy, although we wouldn’t be surprised to see some older, but still trendy, baby boomers stepping into them. Audi was a bit of a latecomer into the Australian prestige small car market with the A1 being launched here towards the end of 2010 well behind its German rivals the Mercedes-Benz A-Class and BMW’s 1 Series and MINI. Style is the name of the game in this area of the car market and the Audi A1 has plenty of it. While the large grille at the front may look similar to that of larger cars and SUVs in the Audi range it actually takes the single-grille theme in a new direction. From the side the most obvious feature of the Audi A1 is the domed profile of the roof and the hoops that support it. The latter can be ordered in various different paint hues to really make it stand out. But the hoops can also be chosen in the same colours as the roof. Incidentally, a large panoramic sunroof is also on the extensive options list. A feature of this car class is the large number of choices available and Audi has taken the interesting route of offering the sort of features normally only seen in its topline models. These include automatic locking and unlocking, several stages of audio and infotainment systems including an upmarket Bose one, satellite navigation, leather trim, a multi-function steering wheel. New Audi A1 is a four-seater but most Australian buyers are likely to regard it as a two-plus-two. The latest addition to the A1 range is the TFSI Sport, a feisty little performer that’s powered by a ‘hot’ version of the 1.4-litre TFSI engine similar to that found in the Volkswagen Polo GTi. Audi has boosted output in the front wheel drive A1 Sport to 136 kW of power and 250 Nm of torque. The secret to the engine’s high-performance is a combination of two forced injection systems: supercharging and turbocharging.

sport Look West to defeat Saints LOCAL footballers return to the grounds this weekend after last week’s bye for inter-league games. The region had a good result overall, with Geelong Football League recording a solid victory over Ballarat to be now ranked second in the state. Bellarine flogged Western Border in the Sharks’ first interleague victory since 2007, while a depleted Geelong and District team went down to Heathcote. Saturday’s round of Geelong Football League games is highlighted by the St Alban’s and West Saints game at St Alban’s Reserve. The Super Saints won their first game of the year before last weekend’s bye and will see this game as an opportunity for two wins in a row for the first time in many lean seasons. Alex McLeod, Sam Hawking, Casey Bourke and young Will Finlay are playing good football and, despite their team only posting one win for the season so far, supporters share a growing belief a better era is just around the corner. West Saints is really battling. A good effort against Newtown and Lara with a shock loss to North Shore in between those two games sums up its season. The talent is there with Andrew Walsh, Sam Page

Local Footy FRANK MASON and Anthony Chirnside but good efforts don’t get the four points. Expect St Alban’s to be pumped up but West looks more talented and should win as long as it doesn’t take things too easy. Other selections: LEOPOLD v Grovedale, NEWTOWN v Colac, North Shore v BELL PARK, SOUTH BARWON v St Mary’s, ST JOSEPH’S v Lara (Sunday).

BFL By Saturday night there will only be one undefeated Bellarine side after the previously unconquered Queenscliff and Ocean Grove do battle at the

home of the Grubbers. Queenscliff has brushed everyone aside this year in its pursuit of consecutive premierships and has proven last year’s victory was no flash in the pan. Ocean Grove claims to have been building to a premiership tilt over the past few years but has hardly been unsuccessful, with finals appearances every year. This year the already-solid outfit looks the goods, with Liam Rock and Lewis Hollmer joining the club to help out the likes of Ben Ricardo and Daniel Maloney. It’s early to say these two sides will be playing off in this year’s grand final but they will definitely be close to it. Their match will be tough and tight, with Queenscliff just getting over the line. Other selections: Anglesea v AMATEURS, Drysdale v TORQUAY, Newcomb v BARWON HEADS, Portarlington v MODEWARRE

the day. The pressure is on both sides to win because outside the top five are the well-credentialled East Geelong and Werribee Centrals who will swoop on the loser’s spot in the five. North Geelong started the year like a house on fire but Anakie belted it a few weeks ago. Bannockburn also felt the wrath of Anakie and there is some doubt whether either the Tigers or Magpies can challenge the top three sides. What can’t be doubted is that both sides are having much better years than last. Darren Ryan has the Magpies in a good spot and can always rely on Brent and Kayne Schwennesen, Braydee Watts and young gun Blake Miller to lead the way. Bannockburn has benefitted from the work of recruit Michael Allen and the development of Matt Tyquin and Jack Brauman. This will be a very close game, with only homeground advantage pointing to a Tiger victory. Other selections: Winchelsea v WERRIBEE Fifth placed Bannockburn welcomes fourth CENTRALS, THOMSON v Inverleigh, BELL placed North Geelong to Victoria Park on Saturday POST HILL v Geelong West, EAST GEELONG v for Geelong and District Football League’s game of Corio, Belmont Lions v ANAKIE.

Winter arrives: cue big snapper in the bay and salmon along coast

BRIAN LONG WITH winter comes the traditional time of the year for big snapper in the bays and salmon along the surf beaches and the action has begun right on cue. Terry McKenzie spent three cold nights on the bay directly out from the silos pier for a tally of one snapper a night. However, all his fish weighed over 5kg. Marlon Richards fished nearby to also land snapper, his best a beauty of 8.2kg. Pilchard has been the bait of choice for snapper in the inner-harbour. Jeff Hunt fished the outer-harbour near the quarries where small fish constantly picked at his baits. However, when the tide began running off he enjoyed a frantic one-hour session for a return of three fish better than 3kg. Paul Parker drifted the outer-harbour spoil grounds with soft plastics for flathead, taking a nice bag as well as two snapper around 2.5kg each. Anglers fishing land-based from Geelong’s waterfront took mainly small snapper and just the odd quality fish. This weekend’s high tides running off in the early afternoon should be the best chance. Bait anglers should try a variety including cut pilchard, chicken marinated in fish oil and squid strips. Soft plastics anglers will find Turtleback worms in the pumpkin green colour ideal. Corio Bay produced respectable numbers of garfish over the past week at locations such as St Helens, Fishermans Pier and Cunningham Pier.

Pier pressure: A pair of anglers with a typical catch of garfish currently available from Cunningham Pier. Silver fish and maggots were the baits, with berley critical. Whiting reports continued to impress, with St Leonards to Queenscliff offering great action. Successful anglers used fresh squid or pippes. Squid were taken from the cut at Queenscliff on the high tide slack water after dark. Peter Harvey trekked down from Melbourne with curtail grubs for the trevally at Queenscliff. He wasn’t disappointed, catching nine trevally by day’s end and most averaging just under 1kg. Salmon continued showing up at Point Lonsdale Pier, with the last two hours of the run up to high tide

generally best. Bait works but small, metal, baitfishprofile lures or soft plastics are better. The surf at Wye River was difficult last weekend but plenty of salmon were caught, most between 600g and 900g. Bait and lure worked equally well. Salmon were also landed nearby at Artillery Rock, again mostly under 1kg but this time lures were clearly best. The water was mostly unclear at Fairhaven but salmon poured in when conditions allowed. Lure anglers had captures of fish between 1kg and 2kg. The opposite end of the beach at Eastern View produced salmon on low tides but most were under 1kg.

1035497-SH22-12

On the bite

Tuna were still being taken at Warrnambool and Portland, mostly in shallow water, giving smaller boats the opportunity to get into the action. At times the fish have been difficult to tempt but the use of very small lures generally had a few reels screaming. In freshwater, Lake Tooliorook’s redfin captures receded but this was expected with the onset of cooler conditions. Trout were a better proposition, with anglers trolling Tassie Devils doing well but counterparts fishing from the shore with orange or pink Powerbait enjoying the best captures. Ballarat’s Lake Wendouree continued attracting trout enthusiasts. The fish have been mostly under 1kg but taken by all angling methods. Garry Finch caught and released eight trout last Sunday with red Powerbait. He reported that a lure caster nearby caught the same number of fish on a lay-down minnow. Lake Bullen Merri yielded brown trout to 2.5kg taken on the troll, with anglers reporting that larger lures returned the best captures. Sabile deep-diving minnows were successful but anglers with downriggers set at 10m are also finding good fish. Shore-based anglers took rainbows and browns on Powerbait, local gudgeon and small bibbed lures such as Atomic Shads and Halco Scorpions. Lake Purrumbete remained consistent. Anglers trolling Tassie Devils caught fish but others casting deep-running lures from boats toward shore reported outstanding success, with Daiwa Double Clutch lures best. Jan Juc or Breamlea should be good for salmon this weekend if the wind is light, otherwise hit Fairhaven or Eastern View. Lake Bullen Merri should be a good option for freshwater angling. Best results have been coming from mid-morning to mid-afternoon on Powerbait or small suspending minnow-pattern lures cast along the lake margins.
