City budget advice:

California dreaming for coast lifesavers

Reveal wards’ shares

BY CHERIE DONNELLAN REVEALING budget funding for wards would make Surf Coast council “more transparent”, according to a Geelong councillor. Andy Richards and Geelong Mayor John Mitchell praised the city’s detailing of ward funding after Surf Coast councillors rejected a proposal to adopt the procedure at their last meeting. Cr Joe Remenyi unsuccessfully put a motion to “recast” council’s 2012/2013 budget itemising funding for each ward after a municipal restructure introduces wards later this year. Cr Remenyi launched an email campaign telling residents that revealing allocations to wards would address “questions of equity in spending and revenue-raising”. The budget favoured Torquay too heavily, he said. Councillors voted down Cr Remenyi’s motion six to one. Cr Richards said if Surf Coast Shire were to adopt a ward structure “it will by its nature make things more transparent”. Councils needed “local champions” to fight for particular community issues, he said. “As a councillor for Barwon Heads and southern Geelong, I try to champion my area. I

believe it gets its fair share of funding that way.” Cr Mitchell said itemising ward funding allowed ratepayers to know “where” money went. Geelong’s policy created a “good relationship” with the community and ensured “fairness”, he said. Geelong’s council had document its budget data since he was first elected eight years ago. “Our system has been very transparent for eight years I’ve been here,” Cr Mitchell said. Lorne Community Association president Peter Spring said the issue was a case of déjà vu because the town’s last councillor, Nelson English, had also called for transparency on funding. “He fought very hard for transparency within the shire so we could tell what Lorne was contributing and receiving. Eight years on Cr Remenyi has met fierce opposition from fellow councillors for the same thing.” Mr Spring said smaller towns like Lorne received “extremely low” capital works funding compared to places such as Torquay. “The fact you can’t get information on community-by-community basis is not a sign of open and accountable governance.”

FIVE LIFESAVERS from the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula will battle Los Angeles counterparts in California next month. Anglesea’s Tom Penney said representing Victoria in the Wieland Shield competition was a “big honour”. Mr Penney won a place on the state team after consistently placing in the top two in a series of summer competitions. The 25-year-old architecture student said he had spent “months” preparing for the event but confessed the Surf Coast’s “particularly cold winter” had made training a challenge. “It’s been quite different, trying to do the training in the middle of winter that we would normally be doing in summer. “It’s been hard having to get up and run or swim at 6am in the cold but the team has been working hard.” Mr Penney said the LA team’s “great training program” could provide a lesson for the Victorians. “They have paid lifeguards because they basically have a tourist season all-year-round. “I think our voluntary service is very much a part of Australian culture but it’ll be good to see how the professionals work.” The Victorian team will compete in the Wieland Shield from August 3 to 4. The biennial event was conceived at Melbourne’s 1956 Olympic Games as a way to build camaraderie and exchange ideas between Californian and Victorian lifesavers.

Trial boosts hopes for train internet services BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A V/LINE antenna system trial could improve internet coverage on Geelong trains, according to the company’s communications manager. Daniel Moloney said the trial aimed to discover whether low signal strength or the shielding effect of trains contributed to on-board black spots. “If the trial shows the antenna has an effect it will enable us to put a business case to government to install them across the fleet.” Geelong Chamber of Commerce and Deakin University have called for improved internet coverage for business and student travellers. Mr Moloney said V/Line had

already tested baseline coverage for the three mobile providers: Telstra, Optus and Vodafone. “Now we’ll see whether adding an antenna makes a difference. “We know that where there’s a strong signal there are no cut-out issues, so we need to find out the degree carriage construction impacts a weak signal.” Mr Moloney said some trains, particularly VLocity carriages, had a shielding effect on mobile signals. “The Geelong line fares comparatively well, although it could still be improved,” he said. “Other regional lines have it worse, with half the Ballarat line and three-

and challenging environment” for mobile coverage. “The number of simultaneous users accessing wireless data also plays a part in network data speed performance.” Deakin Vice Chancellor Professor Jane den Hollander said reliable internet connectivity would help the university increase enrolments. “In today’s digital age everyone, particularly the young, students and those from overseas, expect to be able to connect to the internet wherever they are. “A reliable wireless connection on rail services in regional Victoria and especially on the busy Geelong-toMelbourne line is very important.”

quarters of the Bendigo line out of coverage.” A Telstra spokesman said its network generally had good handheld street-level coverage along the Melbourne-to-Geelong line. “Provision of continuous mobile phone coverage into train carriages, however, is a far more difficult prospect,” he said. “Train carriages typically have substantial multi-layered steel skins and often metallic reflective coating on carriage windows. The structural factors greatly reduce the level of signal that reaches passengers.” The spokesman said railway cuttings and tunnels added to a “complex

People power COMMUNITY groups have announced two energy retailers to provide discounted supplies to almost 700 members of a new bulk-buying group for Barwon Heads and Ocean Grove. The towns’ community associations said Powerdirect and AGL would support the scheme for the next two years after almost 10 per cent of households signed up for the discounts.

Quay application GEELONG council has knocked back an application from developer Jim Ramsay to amend plans for his Rippleside Quay proposal. Council said the amendments amounted to a new application, so Mr Ramsay would have to apply to Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal because it granted the existing permit.

OECD visit A PARIS-BASED international economics organisation will visit the Geelong region to investigate “rural-urban partnerships”, State Government has announced. Regional and Rural Development Minister Peter Ryan said the Organisation for Cooperation and Development would send a team of “senior representatives” to the region from August 27 to 29.

Curlewis project

Bite ‘signs’ on missing diver gear, say police

CURLEWIS is set for a new winery and function centre after Geelong’s council approved a planning permit this week. But council restricted the opening hours of the cellar door operation and imposed other conditions on noise, car parking and the number of patrons.

VicRoads to ‘consider’ sea rise warning BY CHERIE DONNELLAN VICROADS will consider a new report warning that climate change could damage the Great Ocean Road, according to a spokesperson. VicRoads south-western regional director Will Tieppo said the road authority would “consider the outcomes” of the Great Ocean Road Coast Committee study. The committee commissioned consultant Sinclair Knight Merz to undertake the study, finding that flooding would threaten 13.4km of the road by 2100, based on state planning predic-

tions for sea level rises. Erosion was a threat to 33km if sea levels rose the state’s planning benchmark of .8m by 2100, the report said. Flooding would threaten $21.7 million of infrastructure including boat ramps, car parks and caravan parks. Erosion was a risk for $137 million of infrastructure. The report also cited 22 of 33 “registered indigenous cultural heritage assets” would be exposed to erosion and eight to flooding. More than 380ha of native vegetation, including endangered plant species, were at risk of flooding and

over 700 to erosion. Mr Tieppo said VicRoads was conducting its own study of the ocean road between Marengo and Skenes Creek. The study would examine the “causes and effects” of sand movement and erosion to recommend “long-term remedial treatments”, he said. “VicRoads will consider the outcomes of the broader GORCC climate change report alongside DSE’s coastal hazards management report.” Planning Minister Matthew Guy last month introduced changes to climate change planning guidelines.

SHARK bites were found on equipment belonging to a scuba diver missing off Point Lonsdale since Saturday, police have revealed. Preston’s Karen Lee, 42, disappeared from a group on a chartered dive about three nautical miles offshore. The group visited the wreck of SS Coogee, outside Port Phillip Heads in an area known as the Ships Graveyard when she went missing about 3pm. An extensive search including State Emergency Service volunteers conducting a shoreline hunt failed to find any sign of Ms Lee. Police said a camera found with dive equipment earlier this week had belonged to Ms Lee. A shark or other marine life appeared to have damaged the equipment. “Enquiries with the dive group have given no indication there was a shark in the area at the time of her disappearance,” a police spokesperson said. “Subsequent searches failed to show any indication of shark activity near the dive site.” Police will prepare a report for the coroner. The police spokesperson said Ms Lee’s family was grieving and requested privacy “at this sad and difficult time”. The family thanked police searchers, SES volunteers and everyone else involved in the search, the spokesperson said.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN

PROPERTIES across the Geelong region are failing to sell for less than they cost up to four years ago, new figures show. The Real Estate Institute of Victoria (REIV) figures suggested owners who bought houses during the real estate boom could face financial hardship with negative equity. The figures from the past fortnight included a four-bedroom house in Geelong that sold for $560,000 in 2008 passing in at auction for $470,000. A one-bedroom Herne Hill unit passed in at $170,000 on a vendor bid after failing to reach its reserve of $195,000. The owners bought the property in March 2011 for $200,000. Coastal properties also struggled, with a three bedroom St Leonards house passed in at $225,000 despite the owners paying $220,000 in January 2005. The REIV figures showed clearance rates down to 33 per cent. Clearances were 50 per cent for the same weekend last year. Knight Frank research director Richard Jenkins blamed a lack of confidence among buyers. “If you don’t need to sell, stay out of the market,� Mr

Jenkins advised. “There’s a reluctance to enter into any significant purchase and that translates to buyer sentiment, for both owner occupiers and investors. “Clearance rates have been low across board, with a real lack of confidence. “All sectors are soft, including office, business investment and retail,with prices easing for the last 12 to 18 months.� Mr Jenkins said the trend was apparent beyond Geelong, with owners of properties in fringe areas of Melbourne also facing significant negative equity. “The property market sustained outstanding growth in the past 10 years, with record highs, so we won’t see significant price growth for a number of years. “Price expectations are becoming more realistic and funding is more difficult.� Mr Jenkins said vendors had to ride out the drop in the real estate market. “Further interest rate cuts should provide a stimulus “The fundamentals are strong. It’s just the confidence factor rather than a shift in the supply equation. “Geelong’s lower price point will see people continue to relocate into the region and further insulate it from significant falls.�

$5m Pioneer Rd Geelong charity seeks $500,000 for children’s safety works underway WORK has begun on a $5 million duplication of Waurn Ponds’ Pioneer Rd, South Barwon MP Andrew Katos has announced. Mr Katos said the project began this week to upgrade the road between Princes Hwy and Waurn Ponds Creek. Residential and commercial development has increased pressure on the road in recent years, with new community facilities and Geelong’s bypass adding further traffic. “With the ongoing development in the area it’s important we upgrade this road to remove the bottleneck and cater for increased traffic,” Mr Katos said. The road was a focus of lobbying for funding commitments during the 2010 state election. The project would be complete in 2013 “weather permitting”, Mr Katos said.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN DEAKIN University has made nine Geelong staff redundant after announcing a new digital strategy, according to a union. National Tertiary Education Union Deakin branch president Steve Mackey said the redundancies were part of ongoing job losses at the universtiy. The job cuts were predominantly information technology workers. Deakin had pledged a revolutionary digital future dubbed “cloud learning” while simultaneously axing staff skilled in “this way of working”, Mr Mackey said.

continue.” Ms Johnston said Bravehearts was seeking support from business, school and day care groups as well as general residents. She urged involvement in White Balloon Day. “It can be as simple as tying a white balloon to your letterbox or as grand as hosting a fundraising function. “While we have an ambitious target to raise $500,000, everyone can do their bit. The issues are serious but the onus is on making the events fun where everyone can participate.” Ms Johnston said more information was available at whiteballoonday.com.au.

A GEELONG-BASED charity protecting children from sexual assault wants $500,000 “to make Australia the safest place in the world for raising a child”, according to its founder. Bravehearts’ Hetty Johnston said money from White Balloon Day on September 17 would go toward education, prevention and counselling programs. “We are winning the battle one child at a time but there’s a long way to go,” she said. “White Balloon Day is about encouraging kids to come forward and break the silence while we raise necessary funds to ensure vital support networks and programs can

The “contradiction” had puzzled the union. “We can only conclude that the current massive television marketing and re-branding campaign and the elaborate multi-campus launch of the LIVE strategy has cost millions of dollars,” Mr Mackey said. Deakin notified the union of 16 redundancies between June 27 and July 10. The university cut four jobs from its Institute of Teaching and Learning, seven in its Knowledge Media Division, three from School of Information Systems and one each from

Facilities Services Division and School of Architecture and Building. “Eight positions were at the Waterfront campus, seven at Burwood and one at Waurn Ponds,” Mr Mackey said. “Beside these forced redundancies, a number of people in the above areas have felt that they have had to quit voluntarily or reduce their time fraction. “The holders of some contracts have been told not to expect renewal.” A Deakin spokesman confirmed cuts of up to 24 staff.

No sweat over dry prediction BY CHERIE DONNELLAN PREDICTIONS of a return to “dry, hot weather” have failed to alarm the region’s water authority. Barwon Water said the region would have enough supply to last almost 40 years regardless of “climate variability”. Meteorologist Tom Saunders last week warned Australia was at risk of returning to drought-like conditions as sea surface temperatures exceeded a “threshold for El Niño conditions”. El Nino is a weather pattern over the South Pacific that generally creates dry conditions in Australia and wetter weather in

South America. The pattern’s counterpart, El Nina, induces reversed conditions. “El Niño conditions typically bring below-average rain and above-average temperatures to the eastern half of Australia during winter and spring. But Barwon Water’s Carl Bicknell said the region’s water supply system was “well-placed” to deal with a return to El Niño conditions. The region’s storages held a three-year supply, while major water projects would meet forecast growth and address climate variability for the next 40 years, he said. “Greater Geelong’s water

future has been secured until 2050 through recent initiatives such as the Anglesea borefield, Northern Water Plant, Black Rock recycled water project and Melbourne to Geelong pipeline. “This diversified supply system means the region is not reliant on surface water alone and will be able to meet demand through a range of sources, including recycled water and groundwater.” Mr Bicknell said Barwon Water had made substantial investments in new supply sources. “This will provide effective protection against the potential impacts of an El Niño for many years to come.”

Hell of a way to stimulate discussion A GEELONG theatre company using actors with disabilities will stage a “modern-day morality play” to stimulate three Melbourne community forums, according to promoters. They said Back to Back Theatre’s Hell House – Provocation, Belief & Morality would be based on a form of American bible-belt community theatre-staged to scare young audiences into conforming to Christianity. The American plays presented a haunted-house-like tour with room themes for particular sins, the promoters said. The plays, based on American Pastor Keenan Roberts’ Hell House, presented a “black and white moral world where a wrong decision will send you to hell”.

Different: A promotional image from Back to Back Theatre’s latest production. The promoters said Back to Back’s version would feature 40 “community actors” from Geelong and south-western Victoria. Post-performance forums would discuss provocation, belief and morality separately over three

consecutive nights from August 3 to 5 at Arts House, in North Melbourne’s Meat Market. Artistic director Bruce Gladwin said Back to Back Threatre was “excited” about participating in the discussions.

BY CHERIE DONNELLAN AN INQUIRY’S proposed changes to Victoria’s taxi industry would “destroy” the region’s services, according to an industry chief in Geelong. Geelong Taxi Network chief executive officer Peter Valentine slammed the inquiry’s draft report, labelling Geelong’s service concerns a “different kettle of fish” to issues in Melbourne. “Geelong’s regional service has high service level results and has for many years,” he said. Member for Western Victoria Region David O’Brien last week said “the flexibility of public transport” would “increase dramatically” in Geelong under the

recommendations. He highlighted proposed changes including removal of a cap on the number of taxi licences. But Mr Valentine said the changes would make operators “suffer” and affect service levels. “Under the current system drivers are self-employed and therefore accountable for the dollars they earn.” Mr Valentine said drivers entering employee agreements under the proposed changes could abuse leave entitlements and refuse work at “undesirable” times. “If 10 workers call in sick on a busy Friday night, for instance, where are we going to pull another driver from?” Mr Valentine said the inquiry’s

recommendation plan to remove a cap on taxi licences could produce “too many cabs” for “not enough work”. Another proposal to allow “gypsy cabs” was a threat to passengers’ safety, he said. “Gypsy cabs are like London’s metro cabs. The drivers don’t have to comply with the same standards. “It’s been reported that metro cabs have the highest number of violent incidents and this will happen here if gypsy cabs are introduced.” More than 1000 taxi owners and drivers have proposed a class action suit against the Baillieu Government over the controversial recommendations.

A NEW club is forming in Geelong, with Joe Rios extending an official invitation to join. Joe and wife Carol will this month launch Geelong Runners, a social club with the slogan ‘Because running is for everyone’. Joe said the initiative aimed to get more people out running while providing a friendly social forum for others already on the move. New to Geelong, the couple realised that joining a club could be intimidating to novices, with clubs sometimes placing an emphasis on performance, which could deter beginners and average runners. Joe said Geelong Runners would offer an alternative. “We’ll always maintain a core culture of being a socially-oriented club that welcomes beginners. “As the club grows, we may introduce a more formal organisational structure. “Based on the demographics and profile of Geelong and its people, we believe Geelong Runners can become one of the biggest running clubs in the world.” Joe said he hoped Geelong Runners could help boost health and well-being in the region. “That’s why we’ll be welcoming, encouraging and motivating for people who want to start running.” Joe said he also wanted to provide a friendly social forum that made running more fun.

On the run: Geelong Runners founder Joe Rios with Ethiopian running champion Haile Gebrselassie. “Running doesn’t have to be serious, ultra-competitive or expensive. For instance, it’s okay for a runner to walk when tired and it’s okay to run in a group without racing. “This keeps more runners active in the sport and often running becomes a lifestyle rather than just an isolated activity.” Joe is a living example of the type of runner the club hopes to attract. “I’m not a coach, just an average runner who started running at 40 years of age and has since run more than 30 marathons and ultramarathons. “It’s a very rewarding activity, physically and psychologically, and I want to motivate as many

people as possible to share in the paradoxical joys of running. “If I can do it, the average person can. Running – the simplest sport possible – is also the most rewarding there is.” Joe said informal social runs began 5.30pm Wednesdays and 9am Saturdays at Eastern Park’s barbecue area. The five-kilometre runs along Geelong waterfront’s were free of charge. Joe said anyone interested in joining the club could phone him on 0468 326 752 or email joe@geelongrunners.com. More information is available at www.geelongrunners.com and on Facebook, he said.

buckets & bouquets BUCKETS to a fisherman I met at an Auskick clinic for thinking throwing cans into Corio Bay is green because it creates homes for crabs. What a brain he had! Keep your tins in your tinnies and kiss the crabs before throwing them back. Brooke, St Albans Park BOUQUETS to all the workers who built the new Breakwater Bridge. What a great job, completed in rough conditions due to the weather. I couldn’t wait to drive over it and what a great view! All the workers should be proud of their wonderful achievement. Carol, St Albans Park BOUQUETS to Blake for coming to my aid on Shannon Ave while I attempted to put air in my tyres. It was a pleasure to have him offer assistance. Helen, Geelong West

BOUQUETS to three lovely ladies who stopped to help my son after he came off his bike on January 30. Sorry for the lateness of my thanks. I would also like to return your towel if you could phone me on 0425 786 672. Danial, Clifton Springs BUCKETS to golfers who don’t live in Portarlington or Indented Head but who are petitioning City of Greater Geelong to close part of Tower Rd. Too Much, Portarlington BOUQUETS to Vet 2 Pet, especially Laura for her kind and caring words and the beautiful card she sent on the passing of my baby girl, Bomber. Those words meant a lot to me. I know Bomber is resting peacefully. RIP Bomber, Norlane

BOUQUETS to a kind man who stopped me after I lost my money at the pokies to tell me I had a flat tyre on my ute. He put his blue ute behind mine with its blinker on then put on a spare tyre. Roger, Bell Post Hill BOUQUETS to a kind person who handed in at Coles Corio on June 15 a set of keys with a silver fern leaf key holder. May good karma always be with you. Hole In Pocket, Corio BOUQUETS to City of Greater Geelong for its immediate response to my complaint about potholes on Ibbotson St, Indented Head.

YOUR WEEKLY We put Lara cops petition in motion HEALTH TIP

Change direction ACCORDING a recent article in Britain’s Daily Mail, the supposed consensus on man-made global warming is facing an inconvenient challenge after the release of new temperature data showing the planet has not warmed for the past 15 years despite the rapid increase of carbon dioxide emissions. The article said: “Figures suggest we could even be heading for a mini ice age to rival the 70-year temperature drop that saw frost fairs held on the Thames River in the 17th Century”. This conclusion was based on readings from more than 30,000 measuring stations. The data was issued last week by British Met Office and University of East Anglia Climatic Research Unit. Not only has the warming trend ended, it looks like we could now be headed in the other direction. According to leading climate scientists, “after emitting unusually high levels of energy throughout the 20th Century the Sun is now heading toward a grand minimum, threatening cold summers, bitter winters and a shortening of the season available for growing food”. Thus it would appear the panic over CO2 emissions is unfounded and diverting attention away from the real climate issues facing the planet. Alan Barron Grovedale

Job training boost MUCH has been written and said about changes to funding for the state’s vocational education and training (VET) system but the fact that has been missed is that the Victorian Government has actual-

Eating less may just be the real reason you are overweight!

Last week: The Independent’s report on the call for a 24hour station.

ly committed more funding for training over the next four years. When the former Labor government introduced the existing uncapped, demand-driven system little did Labor imagine the massive cost blowout it would trigger and the proliferation of training providers competing with TAFE institutes for funding. Labor forecast the cost of funding training would reach $855 million in 2011/2012 but this figure blew out to more than $1.3 billion. The unfunded, unexpected blowout was largely due to an explosion in courses with low job outcomes. For example, enrolments in courses like fitness trainers grew 1955 per cent and customer contact 2234 per cent but apprenticeships only increased 10 per cent. As a consequence, this State Government has locked in over the next four years around $1.2 billion in annual funding to support Victorians accessing vocational education and training. This is an extra $1 billion over the next four years. The Government will also provide increased subsidies for training in areas of skill shortages and of high value to Victoria’s economy. Every apprenticeship course will receive increased funding. I believe our TAFE institutes have a strong and positive future. Peter Hall MLC Minister for Higher Education and Skills

HAVE YOUR SAY Mail: Email: Fax:

When it comes to early morning training, I find a lot of my clients come into their training sessions with no carbohydrate or fuel in their system. Although food is hard to take in, unless it is a few hours earlier, I recommend that they take either a gel or a liquid carb such as Gatorade, prior to, or during their training session. Limiting your ability in a training session due to lack of fuel is counterproductive. This lack of fuel will mean that your ability to train effectively in that session will be reduced. ne of the key Reducing volume or length of a session is one reasons that people who are not fit, do not burn fat well either. To gain optimum fat burning in your session,, make sure that your energy systems will see you u through 45 minutes to one hour, so that you can really target your fat stores during the session and many hours after the session.

This issue needs a notice of motion from council to act on our behalf and to work for our interests, our safety, our security and families. The notice of motion should read: We, as the elected representatives of City of Greater Geelong, ask State Govern-ment to provide extra police in the northern suburbs to allow the Lara station to operate 24 hours and for more police to operate out of Corio Police Station so that it is adequate for the safety of the community.

I WRITE regarding a story in last week’s Independent about a petition for more police in Geelong’s northern suburbs and Lara. I thank Linda Hyatt for her tireless work in getting around the community and shops on behalf of the community to make it safer. Ms Hyatt approached me to assist her in gaining extra signatures. I also want to thank residents who signed the petition. More than 10 per cent of the population got behind asking for the new station at Lara to be open 24 hours a day and for more police on the beat in the northern suburbs.

RECENT comments about too many shopping centres at Drysdale, reported by Michelle Herbison (Independent, June 6), were almost laughable. At Portarlington both supermarkets have the same owner. We not only have to put up with the consequences for pricing of products but also to carry them at least 100 metres to our cars thanks to the people who took away most of our main-street car parks. It seems coffee on the footpath is the trendy way to go, with sippers taking up the dozen or so parks left so they can sip their coffees for an hour or so while we have to struggle with finding a space close to our places of business. The other drawback is that the section of road between Scotchmans and Whitcombes roads is rid-

I READ with some dismay the comments of Geelong Environment Council’s Joan Lindros in the July 6 Independent on Lonsdale Golf Club’s redevelopment. Ms Lindros displayed an incredibly one-eyed approach to this carefully planned redevelopment of the existing golf course. The costly planning process has taken 10 years, during which time all environmental issues have been addressed and agreed to by an independent panel appointed by the minister to review the proposal and its implications. I am unsure whether all readers have a full understanding that there has been and will be a valuable parkland setting maintained in the golf course area, which provides an effective separation barrier between the urban development of Point Lonsdale and sensitive wetlands. This area has been well-maintained at considerable cost by permanent staff on-site for decades. This work has included pest and weed control and care and management of the plantations. The survival of the club will ensure these maintenance activities continue and that the effective parkland barrier between development and the wetlands is maintained. The club provides a marvelous, well-recognised community facility and its survival hardly deserved the comment that there would be “removal of wetlands for a little bit of pleasure”. In my view, the planning for the redevelopment has been massive overkill when all that is being done is a marginal change to the existing club boundaries and a small residential subdivision within the planned urban rezoning under Point Lonsdale’s structure plan to ensure the club’s survival.

Laughing at rubbish I LAUGH while reading the rubbish Pricilla Wright seems to believe, like the fact we have hydro-whatever-acid in the water (Letters, June 6). Big words are much scarier then small ones, it seems. I’m just glad I wasn’t drinking any dihydrogen monoxide at the time or I might have spit it out through laughter and that would have ruined my perfectly good newspaper. I also loved this statement: “We accept migrants who do not wish to embrace our traditions or values, which many of our forefathers fought and died for”. I know that my great-grandfather, who came over by ship from Ireland, would not stand for these migrants coming over and ruining everything with their strange religions and food. Also, Ms Wright, most people in Australia do ask questions, we just make sure they’re intelligent ones before we do so. Allan Jagger Grovedale

Get back on track THE JUNE 29 Independent stated that Sarah Rowe was getting in shape for walking the Kokoda Trail. Trail? How goddamn American! The word is track, mate. The yanks have trails. Think of The Wallaby Track or Turton’s Track or any amount of outback tracks. Your journalist is not the only one at fault. I have seen and heard this mistake so much recently, which I am sure raises the hackles of our surviving World War Two diggers and the families of those who took part in this epic campaign that I had to protest. Please, mister editor, Kokoda Track in future. John Fairnie Highton

Fast times with Tates’ radio cars ig boys can’t hit 170 km/h on the road but they can with a radio-controlled car from Tates ToyWorld. Hobby manager Clayton says Tates specialises in a wide range of high-end radio controlled cars, helicopters and aircraft. The store has the world’s fastest radio-controlled car, the Traxxas X01, on display. “All our staff are hobby enthusiasts who have started out and developed their hobbies, developing great product knowledge along the way,” Clayton says.

“We love to have a chat with customers about their hobbies and what they need, from beginners to experienced enthusiasts. “Our staff love to give advice and tips, particularly for those new to the hobby. “Because they’re all involved in the hobbies, they have a broad range knowledge. “There’s always someone who can answer your questions because there’s not a product at the store that staff haven’t used.” Clayton says hobbyists sometimes buy online but fail to receive

the same after-sales service. “We can offer people the best of both worlds – you can conveniently buy online at the Tates website and still get all the advice and after-sales care you need.” Clayton says buying hobby supplies through Tates also ensures spare parts are always available. “For anything we sell we’re sure to either have the parts or know we can get them.” Tates at 135 Shannon Avenue, Geelong West, at rcworld.com.au, or phone 5222 4201.

BY CHERIE DONNELLAN ZOOPHYTE’S first film clip depicts the members washing up on a beach but the band is far from washed up. After recently finishing a successful tour with INXS, Zoophyte will hit Geelong’s shores next week during a regional tour. Lead singer Cam Lee spoke to the Independent about the video for Let You Go and how a line-up change for the Melbourne band was “a blessing in disguise”. “My brother, Andy, and I came up with the beach concept for Let You Go,” Lee said. “The song reflects a sort of wash-yourself-clean vibe, kind of like how the band is starting afresh. It’s a bit tongue-in-cheek.” Lee recalled struggling to swim fully-clothed, guitar in hand, for the clip. “It was cold and the surf was huge. It was, well, slightly harder than I anticipated,” he laughed. Despite the shoot costing several guitars and cymbals lost in the surf, Lee thought the band “nailed” the shoot. “Now we’re tossing around a few ideas for the next single.” Lee described soon-to-bereleased album Somewhere Elsewhere as Zoophyte’s “most cohesive” recording yet through the band’s various reformations. “I think this album’s quite different to anything we’ve done in the past, mainly due to the line-up

Plant-like animals: Zoophyte plays Geelong next week. change. I mean, the band used to be quite eclectic but our music has a lot stronger direction now.” Lee reminisced about his pact with bassist Andrew Gilpin to “jam weekly” after the departure of two of Zoophyte’s original members. “It was quite disappointing when everything fell apart. We’d been so successful touring with (2007 album) Another Point of View. “But it turned out to be a blessing in disguise because Gilpin and I could just meet up, write and record whatever we wanted.” Lee said the pair had “no preconceived ideas” about releasing another Zoophyte album at the time. But when Aljus and guitarist

Rob Muinos joined, the foursome made a “new dynamic that worked”. “We spent time on vocals and harmonies, something we hadn’t previously done. “We’d always rehearsed the musical side of things but didn’t explore tones in our voices, so we spent a lot of time in the studio harmonising for this album.” Lee described Zoophyte’s new sound as a “guitar-driven, big rock sound”. “We’ve got the delayed guitars, the hooky vocals and, of course, a lot of harmonies.” Zoophyte plays Geelong’s Bended Elbow on July 20.

Goodies and Biddies ome of Australia’s most loved actresses star in new Australian comedy taking a lighthearted look at being female and mature in today’s world. Geelong Performing Arts Centre hosts Biddies, by award-winning playwright Don Reid, this month as part of Alcoa Theatre Season in partnership with Deakin University. The play’s five women find themselves accidentally locked in a classroom where they ply their needles during an old-fashioned stitch-andbitch sessions. Frank confessions, intense rivalries and outrageous jokes reveal a common frustration with the limitations of being female and mature in a world largely defined by men. Released from their constraints, the women rediscover their capacity to love, forgive and take control. The distinguished cast features six of Australia’s most loved actresses: Maggie Blinco, who has

He said Burgess would be “perfect” for the job. “Anna has plenty of experience hosting large-scale events and (at) improvisation,” Mitchell said. “She visited Geelong Hospital (recently) to gain a better understanding of where the funds raised on the night will go. “I have no doubt Anna will do a great job keeping the night on track and I’m sure she’ll have plenty of fun interacting with all the guests.” Burgess studied arts and drama at Deakin University before performing in stage productions of The Producers, Crazy for You and Anything Goes. Her television work has included stints on Rove Live, Neighbours, Thank God You’re Here and Postcards. She also had a role in Australian feature film Any Questions for Ben. Mitchell said the ball, at The Pier on August 4, would raise money for the hospital’s children’s ward, St John of God Hospital Special Care Nursery and disability services provider Scope. “If you haven’t booked your seats

suddenly it all made sense. The little Honda skipped along with impressive agility, hugging the curves and remaining beautifully balanced throughout. As is often the case the small, high revving engine really added to our driving enjoyment. Torque is paramount for most driving enthusiasts and, as with all pure electric or petrol/electric vehicles, there’s plenty of it at low revs meaning that it can accelerate sharply from a standing start. Importantly, Honda CR-Z is 92 per cent recyclable, a figure that includes the battery pack, thus putting it on terms with a conventionally powered vehicle. Honda CR-Z does live up to its hitech hype with performance, ride and handling to go with its sporty looks.

The main benefit of the week-long test drives is that we get the opportunity to drive the car in a variety of conditions. For the first six days of our recent test of the CR-Z CVT, we were restricted to daily commutes mixed with some freeway running, and we struggled to work out what the little Honda coupe was all about.

One of the most enjoyable features of any car with electric power (either pure electric or petrol-electric) is the amount of torque produced at low revs. The feeling as the car jumps off the line is sure to please keen drivers. CR-Z has a three-mode drive system which tailors steering, throttle response and IMA assistance to sport, normal or economy patterns simply by means of buttons on the dashboard. ‘Sport’ sharpens throttle response, ups electric motor assistance and attributes a more positive feel to steering; ‘Econ’ puts fuel economy above all else through operation of the driveby-wire throttle, ECU, air-conditioning and hybrid system; ‘Normal’, the

The CR-Z has been billed as the world’s first hybrid sports coupe and has proven itself to be a real surprise packet, not just to us but also to the Wheels magazine judges who selected it as their 2011 Car of the Year. Styling of the Honda CR-Z is distinctive enough to attract quite a bit of attention. Hybrid power comes from the latest development of Honda’s IMA (Integrated Motor Assist) system. It uses a 1.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine with an electric motor in-line with it. The combination produces up

sport Ammos to lose grip on finals BELLARINE Football League players return to the playing field this weekend after enjoying a bye last week. The game of the day is at Modewarre where the Warriors host Geelong Amateurs. Amateurs hold fifth spot ahead of Modda by only four points and a slim percentage, so a loss could see the positions reverse. This will be enough to bring out the best in Matthew Sproule’s Warriors who are aiming for finals. Craig Woods, Josh Finch, Adam Leslie and Luke Davidson are leading lights for the home side but need more support for their team to really worry the top three sides. Amateurs is not a top-three side this year but has started putting together some good performances. Beating Torquay three weeks ago was seen as a turning point in its year until Ammos followed up with a 29-point loss to Ocean Grove a fortnight ago. This inconsistency is a real problem for coach Tim Clark who must be frustrated with a side that

Local Footy FRANK MASON contains many good footballers. Luke Buckland, Travis Robertson, Ben Boseley, Trevor Edwards and Damien Zaparenkov are experienced and talented and would slot into any team but for some reason their talents aren’t enough to get the side further up the ladder. Club depth is not a problem because the reserves are in the top five. Amateurs better find a solution soon or might find itself missing out on finals for the first time in many years. A win in this game will almost guarantee fifth

spot on the ladder, so expect finals-like intensity. Modda at home is hard to toss, so expect it to keep the finals dream alive with a narrow victory. Other selections: Portarlington v DRYSDALE, QUEENSCLIFF v Anglesea, Barwon Heads v TORQUAY, OCEAN GROVE v Newcomb.

GDFL Geelong and District Football League’s round 13 games are highlighted by the clash of East Geelong and Werribee Centrals at Richmond Crescent. There’s a lot riding on the outcome of this game, so expect a beauty. For East Geelong there is the coveted third spot, which entitles a double chance come finals. At the moment the Lions hold it by percentage only, so a loss and an expected victory for fifth placed Bannockburn would see that slip from the Lions’ grasp. The stakes are a lot higher for Werribee because it’s outside the top five by two points. With the sea-

son slipping away, that gap becomes harder to breech. East has had a horrid run with injuries, putting Jayke Mawson and Becker Nguyen out for a while. On the plus side, Simon Prymke is back out on the field. Earlier in the year the Lions would have been pencilled in as a definite top-three side but they haven’t found the going that easy and will have to dig deep to play a major role in the finals. Werribee drew with the highly rated Thomson a few weeks ago but was soundly thrashed by Bell Post Hill last weekend. The Centurions better bring their A-game along this Saturday because on paper the Lions look too strong and should be able to take the points. Other selections: Inverleigh v NPRTH GEELONG, BELL POST HILL v Belmont Lions, Corio v BANNOCKBURN, GEELONG WEST v Winchelsea, THOMSON v Anakie. Geelong Football League has a bye this weekend.

Winter snapper and whiting provide outstanding action in both bays On the bite

Winter wonder: Leigh Westerland with his snapper from Corio Bay in Geelong.

BRIAN LONG OUTSTANDING captures were reported over the past week in and around Geelong. Leigh Westerland tried a new Daiwa spinning reel with 10lb braid last Friday evening just off St Helens where he caught his personal best snapper, a beauty of 7.1kg. Boat-mate Les Illes also landed a ripper of 6.4kg about an hour later. Geoff Harrison found good number of snapper on his sounder near St Helens boat ramp, landing three over 6kg each in less than an hour on pilchards. I met Harry Blake at the ramp on Monday night as he returned from a few hours on the bay. Harry caught a pair of snapper about 5kg each on the Stingaree Bay spoil ground just after dark on fresh squid. Away from the snapper, many boats concentrated on whiting from St Leonards to Queenscliff. John Miller and Ross Johnson passed dozens of boats near Swan Bay’s entrance to take their combined bag limits in about 90 minutes on the run up to high tide. Their best bait was squid, of which they caught 12 earlier in the day. Stan Grieves landed his bag limit of squid each time he fished close in at Edwards Point. Small jigs were best, he said, with colour not as important as working the jigs to entice the strikes. Salmon were still found throughout the bay, although they spread out amid calm conditions. Gerry Ho found them in 15m off Sorrento where small soft plastics cast into surface action caught any number of fish from 1kg plus. Terry Lombardo’s hours off Queenscliff failed to produce gummy shark but he returned each time

with his bag limit of big snapper, indicating they’re throughout the bays at present. Noel O’Connor found reasonable numbers of garfish at Swan Bay Jetty. He finished with 15 but could have taken more except for numerous leatherjackets taking baits and hooks. Calm conditions made salmon fishing difficult,

although Cinema Point produced a fish a cast for over an hour until a seal arrived. Minutes after it left the salmon came back on the bite for another hot 90minute session on lure. Jan Juc was inconsistent but still the most productive beach for salmon, with lure out-fishing bait as the fish came on the bite either side of high tide.

Reports of silver trevally taken on soft plastics at Queenscliff’s cut continued filtering through, with the fish apparently holding up along the rock wall on the Swan Bay side. In freshwater, Lake Tooliorook again returned both trout and redfin. Craig Varker showed me a pair of magnificent rainbows landed on Powerbait, with one delivered to renowned Geelong fish taxidermist Trevor Lumb. Ken Alford found the redfin willing to bite at Tooliorook on trolled and cast vibe-style lures. Newlyn Reservoir yielded some quality brown trout on small Eco Gear SX 40 lures in colour number 307. The best fish was over 2kg. Nearby, anglers took rainbows at Hepburn Lagoon with Powerbait. Ballarat’s Lake Wendouree continued to see produce rainbows and browns for bait anglers using Powerbait in the Sherbert Burst colour. Lure casters were successful with shallow-running bibbed lures such as Rapala X Rap 4s. Troy West fished Lake Bullen Merri from the shore this week for three small rainbow trout. He trapped a handful of local gudgeon before fishing into the early hours of the morning for two fantastic brown trout of 2.6kg and 3.3kg. Parents, grandparents and carers used school holidays to take children fishing at Seagull and St Augustine’s lakes, in North Geelong and Highton respectively. Both were stocked with small rainbow trout just prior to holidays so kids could have a fantastic fishing opportunity in town. Young Jake Cammaroto had one of the biggest smile where landed his first trout ever in a haul of five for the day. Anglers seeking snapper this weekend should fish the run-up to high tide in the morning and continue until early afternoon as the tide runs off. Surf anglers wanting salmon should look to deep-water rock platforms down the coast throughout the morning.
