Rip Curl ‘best bet’ for investors, says analyst Publicly-listed Billabong was reported to have recently rejected a bid from private equity company TPG for $1.45 a share, or US$700 million, after a valuation of $1.7 billion 12 months earlier. Billabong, founded in Queensland, has struggled with a falling share price over the past few years. Mr Volkov said Rip Curl selling first would “seriously derail” Billabong’s search for investors. He warned international investors they could damage the Rip Curl brand if they moved its Torquay headquarters overseas. “A big part of Rip Curl’s identity is based on the fact that it was founded and based in Torquay. “The best strategy for investors would be to inject funds into the business and continue developing the brand here and overseas.” A former Rip Curl manager said any sale would be “understandable” because Mr Warbrick and Mr Singer had “semi-retired” about a decade ago. The company’s board had failed to identify successors to take over, he said. He hoped a sale or a new investor would provide a boost for the brand while keeping it in Torquay. The company’s iconic Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach during Easter could help keep the company’s headquarters in Australia, he said.

BY CHERIE DONNELLAN TORQUAY’S Rip Curl could be “more enticing” to overseas investors than rival Australian surfwear company Billabong, according to a strategic business marketing analyst. Deakin University’s Michael Volkov said Rip Curl was likely to have greater appeal for its “brand equity” advantage. “Rip Curl’s a brand that’s known to be tied to its surfing roots,” Mr Volkov said. “It’s relatively small scale (compared to Billabong) but it’s successful. “Because of its size, it wouldn’t need a restructuring of management.” The privately-owned company confirmed this week it was considering selling after “unsolicited approaches” from international organisations. The company said it had hired Bank of America Merrill Lynch to “[explore] the opportunities [and assess] the merits of introducing a third-party investor to the group”. Prospective investors would have to adhere to Rip Curl’s “company values” before making any deals. Rip Curl recently forecast increased 2013 earnings of $48 million, up from $41 million. Media reports said Rip Curl’s owners wanted US$500 million. Torquay’s Doug ‘Claw’ Warbrick and Brian ‘Sing Ding’ Singer own 72 per cent of the company, which they founded in 1969.

DROPPING the demand for Catholic priests to be celibate is unlikely to address sex abuse problems within the church, according to St Mary’s Basilica Fr Kevin Dillon. Fr Dillon also doubted the move would attract new recruits to the clergy. He was responding to a renewed debate that Jesus Christ could have been married, following the finding of a Fourth Century scrap of papyrus revealing early Christians thought he was married. The ancient document was revealed this week at Harvard Divinity School, in the US. But Fr Dillon said the issues of sexual abuse or declining numbers in the church were unlikely to be resolved with a one-dimensional change to celibacy requirements of priests. “We do the victims of abuse a disservice to think what they’ve suffered is due to just one thing only,’’ he said. “There are a lot of causes both within the church’s control and sometimes outside. Whether it had been better managed when people first suspected abuse, how many would have been saved. “One might say when the alarm bells were ringing had they been heeded a lot of people who suffered may not have suffered. The question is why weren’t they heeded. “It has nothing to do with celibacy.’’ Fr Dillon said the church had also been denied the ministry of some fine people, “well educated and well experienced”, after they fell in love and were obliged to leave the priesthood. The ancient papyrus includes the words “Jesus said to them, my wife’’. It was thought to have been discovered in Egypt or Syria. According to Harvard’s Professor Karen King, Jesus was thought until about 200 AD to have been married.

in brief

Call for investigation into database misuse

RESCUE crews had to fight through tree branches to rescue two drivers from the wreckage of a car crash at Connewarre, according to an SES commander. Scott Clark said one of the victims was airlifted to Melbourne after both vehicles involved in the accident came to rest among trees at the intersection of Barwon Heads and Blackrock Rds on Saturday.

Tourism jump THE NUMBER of tourists staying overnight in Geelong jumped 15 per cent in the past financial year, a national survey has revealed. The domestic tourism survey found the number of nights booked rose from 2336 to 2682, with Victoria also recording a 12 per cent increase in tourists using “private fleet vehicles”.

Wines rate MORE than 90 per cent of Geelong wineries reviewed in a prestigious annual Halliday Australian Wine Companion have achieved ratings of four stars or more, according to an industry spokesperson. Wine Geelong’s Lyndsay Sharp said 46 per cent of the wineries achieved the “highest possible” marks of five stars in the industry’s Australian “bible”.

Big ferals “BIG CATS” allegedly seen in the Geelong and Otways regions were probably just larger feral felines, a new reports has concluded. State Government said the study of big cat sightings around Victoria failed to find any “hard evidence”, although the reports of some “informed observers” were hard to explain.

Investigation: Barbara Abley.

Past practice: Bernadette Uzelac.

“It was offered to me. Most of those contacts I have on my database anyway.” Ms Uzelac said the database had been used for various purposes over the years. “This is not a unique situation. I was merely following past practice.” Ms Uzelac confirmed she was a Liberal party member. “But I’m not backed by the Liberal Party. I’m a true independent in that sense.” Ms Uzelac said she had a broad network and

sent the invitation to “a lot of friends and colleagues”, asking them to forward it onto their own networks. Liberal party Corio Electorate Conference chair Brian Hunter Evans also sent invitations to the fundraiser, using the party’s database of members. “I don’t want to comment. I have not received any complaints from members. “One member queried it but there is no issue on privacy regulations.”

STATE Government will grant $200,000 to extend a program working to improve social issues at Whittington, MP David Koch has announced. The Member for Western Victoria said the money would help the Whittington Community Renewal program run three projects to improve health, social interaction, employment and education standards.

SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE:

The emptiness that sits within, the piece of you that no longer exists, the fact that you no longer gone on as a complete person.

The human body is undoubtedly the most intelligent of control systems. And just like any control system, changes to a measured quantity will generate an equal and sometimes amplified opposing force to counteract this change. Therefore, losing size quickly will see the body pull out all stops to bring things back to a state of equilibrium. One of the key reasons that dieters tend to rebound. Lose size slowly and your body will start to accept the new size as it’s desired set-point, with minimal opposition. The message is clear. Chip away each month with a sustainable healthy programme, and you will be lifelong lean and strong.

I notice that I have height end Anxiety in everyday situations, and have to manage myself carefully to control this. I’m fortunate that I have a strength of character and resilience that helps me through the activities of day to day life.

Train smarter, not harder at club exec 1047965-KS38-12

I am thankful for the huge support I have received from family and friends, they are precious to me and loved. However, I have also seen a different side in people, that I’d never seen before, which has really surprised me, but as Jesus Christ said ”father forgive them for they know not what they do.”

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A COUNCILLOR has asked City Hall to seek urgent legal advice on alleged misuse of a Committee for Geelong database in the city’s mayoral election. Cr Barbara Abley also flagged a notice of motion for council’s next meeting requesting the City resign from Committee for Geelong immediately. Cr Abley said the database misuse could constitute a breach of the Privacy Act. Committee for Geelong executive director Peter Dorling gave the database to mayoral candidate Bernadette Uzelac to send invitations for a fundraising dinner. Cr Abley said the sharing of the information also compromised council’s database. Her formal request to City chief executive officer Stephen Griffin and all councillors called for an investigation of available remedies. Cr Abley said the mayoral election process had become “farcical”. “Nothing surprises me any more. This flurry of (uncovered) activities is only the tip of the iceberg in the lead-up to next month’s local government elections. “The title of democratically elected mayor must be the most misleading of all statements of this century. Democratic it isn’t. “It has now become farcical to the point that good candidates won’t want a bar of it.” Committee for Geelong chair Michael Betts said he regarded the issue as “a very serious breach of the privacy of members”. Mr Betts said after learning of the breach he immediately sought an undertaking from Ms Uzelac that the information would be destroyed. “I’ve made it clear that the Committee for Geelong will not be making an error of that type again.” Mr Betts said he was also seeking legal advice on potential Privacy Act breaches. “Ultimately, this will be put before the board of the committee because it’s extremely serious.” Ms Uzelac said she never asked for the list.

Bay trail dream languishing BY NOEL MURPHY PLANS to open Corio Bay's shoreline to cyclists and pedestrians through a pathway complete with tunnels, flyovers, boardwalks and bridges have fallen to the wayside. Seven years after they were raised, and despite federal, state and local government support, Corio historian Ferg Hamilton's plan is no nearer completion. He sought a continuous trail around the bay linking Bob McGovern walk at Rippleside

park with a heritage walk and park at Hovell's Creek. The trail would include tracks at North Geelong and North Shore and link Lara to Eastern Park. Mr Hamilton's proposal would also recognise pioneers who settled Geelong's north with bollards and storyboards. His idea joins other failed plans to beautify, improve or redevelop degraded shoreline sites in areas including Western Beach, Osborne Park, Rippleside and Eastern Park. MPs Richard Marles and John

OUR BAYFRONT ‘BOMBSITES’ CLEAN UP THE WATERFRONT Eren have championed Mr Hamilton's plan in federal and state parliaments respectively, while Mayor John Mitchell has also given it his backing. “I've prepared and presented many plans to City of Greater Geelong and others," Mr Hamilton said. “In 2008 I was invited by

COGG to present the plan to Inspiring Place Pty Ltd in Hobart. This group stopped over in Geelong to address and consider various plans submitted by many groups. “The only feedback I received was verbal. The plan showed great merit for little cost.” Cr Mitchell said the trail was

identified within a Barwon South West regional master plan the City endorsed in 2009. “Funds for a feasibility study are required as the management of the bay is quite complex, including private property, stateowned/managed land, industry and the port of Geelong,” he told the Independent. “If funds were made available, council would be happy to work collaboratively with all the landowners to start the planning process for this aspirational trail.''

Mr Marles said he had pushed the plan since 2005 and had spoken to every landholder along its course. “They're all happy in principle, subject to being able to still use their land properly. “The council needs to finance a feasibility study, a matter I'd suggest is only in the tens of thousands, so we know how much we have to do and the cost. “This is a huge opportunity to put Geelong on display. It really should be on the mayoral agenda.”

Donors have a heart for kids like Kirra 1.5 million visit libraries BY MICHELLE HERBISON NEWBORN Kirra’s heart trouble forced mum Tammi Butters to rush her from Geelong to Melbourne’s Royal Children’s Hospital just a week after premature birth. Doctors performed three surgical procedures on little Kirra’s heart, repairing her aortic arch and two holes. “She was kept asleep for quite a while and she didn’t feed for probably four days,” Ms Butters said. “She went through the wringer a bit.” Ms Butters said she survived the traumatic occasion thanks to much-needed support from charity Heart Kids. “They’re just so good. Until you’re in that situation you don’t realise what they can do for families especially with kids going through the surgeries. “They do morning teas for people who are there so you can meet other parents. It was really helpful.” Ms Butters was grateful that Heart Kids also arranged accommodation for her in Melbourne while Kirra was in hospital. She was now organising a Cuppa for Heart Kids morning tea fundraiser to give back to the organisation. “They are not-for-profit and receive no government funding, so they’re solely based on volunteers and donations.” Ms Butters said Cuppa for Heart Kids, 10am, Tuesday at Ocean Grove Neighbourhood Centre, would include tea, coffee, morning tea and children’s

MORE than 1.5 million patrons visited the Geelong region’s libraries in the last financial year, according to their annual report. Geelong Regional Library Corporation reported than vis-

582 opportunities lost

Jobs ‘unfilled’ BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG is short 582 skilled workers, according to a council survey. The survey said employers reported difficulty in filling 235 jobs this year and expected another 347 positions to be unfilled next year. Almost half the vacancies were in the health care and social assistance industry sector. Doctors, nurses and carers were in high demand, along with taxi drivers, the survey revealed. The survey of 1400 businesses covered the five municipalities in the region’s G21 Alliance grouping. The survey aimed to develop a

Slugger: Jye, 8, belts a ball skyward under the watchful eyes fellow St Thomas Primary School student Jennifer, 7, and softball program mascot Pablo. Picture: Tommy Ritchie

better understanding of the range and extent of skill shortages that employers had or expected difficulty in filling. The positions included fulltime and part-time positions for skilled, semi-skilled and unskilled occupations. The professional sector accounted for 33 per cent of the 235 existing skill shortages, the survey said. Technical and trades accounted for 26 per cent and the community and personal service sector had a 14 per cent shortage. Transport, postal and warehousing, manufacturing and retail also suffered shortages. Designers, engineers, drivers, mechanics, constructions workers and ICT technicians were also in

demand. Businesses were also after human resource and marketing professionals. Council economic development portfolio holder Rod Macdonald said the lack of skilled workers was stunting the growth of Geelong businesses. “It means businesses are outsourcing to Melbourne or turning away work because of the skill shortages. “Unemployment is at one of its historic lows but there’s still a significant gap between business needs and what is being delivered. “What we’re seeing is that there haven’t been enough people trained up in the emerging sectors.”

Softball a hit in pilot program BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A LOCAL pilot program to encourage juniors into softball could be rolled out across Australia. Australian Sports Commission regional coordinator Alison Kooloos said the program was aimed at encouraging juniors into physical activity. She said Softball Australia evaluated the program, held this week at Stead Park for 200 year one and two children from four northern suburbs schools. “The kids got really active for

two hours, experiencing softball in a fun environment,” Ms Kooloos said. “We had volunteers from Softball Geelong helping out and the kids all took home show bags with certificates of participation as well as an invitation to junior competition starting in school holidays.” Ms Kooloos said the program involved children in ongoing physical activity they might otherwise have failed to enjoy. The program was also a boost for softball as 30 parents familiarised themselves with the club

environment, she said. “We uncovered a lot of natural talents. Some of the kids just stood up at the tee and whacked the ball as far as they could.” Softball Geelong secretary Kristy Linehan said volunteers worked with staff from St Francis Xavier, St Thomas Aquinas, Northern Bay and St Anthony’s Lara primary schools. “The game was modified but fun and we really hope it helps to build our junior program. “Softball is a dying sport and the biggest challenge for us is increasing participation.”

‘Millions’ to be spent on Judges go wild for city’s $30,000 art prize expansion of port berths “Although woodchip exports have been suppressed in the last couple of years, Asia presents enormous on going growth opportunities.” The growth in trade would generate construction activity around the port, he said. “This will significantly drive the need for capital investment in the port and significantly grow jobs and opportunities.” Dr Napthine said the port generated a $404 million local economic benefit annually and was directly responsible for 1256 jobs. A record 630 ships berthed in Geelong last year, generating $744,000 per ship.

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A SENIOR Shell executive has described Geelong’s refinery as “borderline” amid increasing competition from bigger Asian refineries. Shell downstream director Mark Williams said in a media interview that the refinery “faced challenges”. Speculation about the future of the Geelong operations escalated after Shell closed its Clyde refinery in Sydney weeks ago. Mr Williams said importing petroleum products cost as much as bringing in oil. The performance of the refinery “over the next few years” would determine its future viability, he said. Mr Williams warned that refineries requiring large ongoing investments were unsustainable. Imports could supply petroleum products currently flowing from Geelong’s refinery, he said.

$250m ‘catastrophe’ BY NOEL MURPHY SHELL’S Geelong refinery suffered lost production worth at least $250 million through unscheduled shutdowns in the past year, company sources have revealed. They said a $70 million maintenance fit-out closed operations for months before a critical turbine/compressor breakdown in the refinery catalytic cracker’s power recovery unit. Three months of repairs followed, costing the company about $180 million in lost production on top of a scheduled shutdown. Shell refused to comment at the time on the breakdown or

lost production. But the sources said the power recovery unit’s “catastrophic failure” required 80 staff and specialist contractors from Siemmens working overtime to carry out repairs. Australian Manufacturing Workers Union Geelong organiser Peter Douglas said in December that Shell was losing $2 million a day while the unit was out of action. “I was told by Shell management. It was put to me in a conversation within an aspect of the breakdown.” The power recovery unit was recommissioned around February.

Kevin Hughes importing petroleum products was cheaper than refining locally. Refineries required multimillion dollar investments that eventually outlived their sustainability, he said. A statement from Geelong refinery general manager Mark Schubert said Shell recently invested $82.5 million. “We recognise the challenge, hence Geelong’s improvement plan which is focused on improving safety and profitability. “We are making progress and we need to stay the course. We are working to make the refinery more competitive with a continued focus on safety while enhancing profitable niche products including avgas, bitumen and solvents.” Mr Schubert said Shell had invested $82.5 million on water and bitumen projects in addition to a recent major maintenance turnaround.

GEELONG port is set for multi-million dollar berth expansions as its record throughput growth continues, according to state Ports Minister Dnis Napthine. Dr Napthine released a Port of Geelong economic impact study this week, showing trade at a record 16 million tonnes. Dr Napthine said plans included expanding Lascelles Wharf north and south “in the near future”. Port simulations showed that under a high growth scenario trade would double by 2030, he said. Dr Napthine identified the port’s fertiliser and woodchip exports as areas of greatest potential growth.

WILD colonial boys have snapped up $30,000 in Geelong Gallery’s Contemporary Art Prize. New South Wales artist Paul Ryan won this years’ prestigious prize for his 2010 work, Wild Colonial Boys, judges have announced. Mr Ryan was one of 46 short-listed artists whose work will form part of an exhibition at Geelong Gallery until November 18. Mr Ryan’s winning painting, addressing “the impact on European settlement on indigenous lands and people”, will then become a permanent fixture at the gallery. Geelong Coast (GC) magazine, profiles the Geelong region’s five short-listed artists in the publication’s spring edition, available now at local newsagents.

PUBLIC MEETINGS NOTICE OF COUNCIL MEETING

Last week: The report on local opinions. Ms van Hamond said Rev Bray’s comments damaged an already marginalised group. “We’re trying to work with young people who are questioning their sexuality and it’s really important we empower them with support rather than negativity,� she said. “When anybody in a leadership position in the community makes statements like that it’s only going to restrict young peoples’ access to help. “There’s evidence that young people with same sex issues are at higher risk of suicide because of the isolation and stigma attached.� A Headspace fact sheet said Australian research showed between seven and 11 per cent of young people were same-sex attracted or unsure of their sexual orientation. Ms van Hamond said “stigma, fear and ignorance� of same-sex attracted people was “in the same era� as stigma surrounding mental health 15 years ago. “Sexuality is in the community and the older generation will not accept it. It’s about persistence and education and facts and realising that we’re talking about real people,� she said.

BY MICHELLE HERBISON GEELONG professionals have slammed a reverendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comments that gay marriage would increase health problems. Headspace Barwonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Toni van Hamond said St Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presbyterian Church Reverend Andrew Bray had made local young people â&#x20AC;&#x153;angry, upset and confusedâ&#x20AC;? with his anti-gay marriage opinions in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Independent. Federal Government voted against a bill to legalise same-sex marriage this week. Rev Bray was justifying his reasons for signing an Australian Christian Lobby petition to protect the definition of marriage as being â&#x20AC;&#x153;between one man and one womanâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The increase in HIV and those sorts of issuesâ&#x20AC;Ś statistics indicate itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greater in same-sex couples. My simple opinion is the indication that there are more health problems that would ensue as a result of legislating this than where we are at the moment,â&#x20AC;? he said. Barwon Health Sexual Health Nurse Rochelle Hamilton said â&#x20AC;&#x153;persecutory behavioursâ&#x20AC;? towards gays and lesbians was usually from those with â&#x20AC;&#x153;uneducatedâ&#x20AC;? views. â&#x20AC;&#x153;HIV and AIDS do not discriminate,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It affects males and females regardless of sexual orientation.

Changes threaten retail, says report

News from Shell

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN “SWEEPING” changes to Victoria’s planning laws threaten the viability of regional retail and business centres, according to a Geelong council report. “These changes allow shops and offices, without a floor space cap, to encroach into residential areas,” the report said. The result would be the “quasi expansion” of neighbourhood activity and strip shopping areas. The changes failed to include “proper” consideration of the impact on neighbourhoods and the viability of existing stores in retail centres. The report said the changes meant more uncertainty for planning permit applicants. Council would consequently be in direct conflict with State Government over election promises to provide improved certainty, it said. The changes proposed consolidation of five existing business zones into two new commercial zones. They would be “immediately translated” into all planning schemes next month, the

on businesses and stimulate the commercial sector. However, there is a distinct lack of consultation and clear direction on the purpose of these reforms.” The Government had failed to supply a strategic justification for the “wide-ranging” changes or evidence of the implications on existing and future centres, the report said. “It is extremely difficult to assess the full impact of the changes in the time provided.” The report criticised a “one-size-fits-all” change to rural zones. The change could encroach business and industry into farmland, fragment rural landscapes and blur their boundaries with urban areas, the report warned. A consequent increase in demand for cheaper farmland could force up rural land prices, making farming too expensive. Council planning portfolio holder Cr Rod Macdonald said some changes were welcome but consulting council first was “vital”. The Government should provide more details and provide assurances that council would continue to have its say in applying the changes, he said.

Chess for thinking at Oberon High School Chess has long been known to benefit students in assisting with abstract reasoning skills and improving problem solving skills. The game, which can be played anywhere, also provides a strong element of competition and enjoyment. Over the past decade Oberon High School has developed a strong history of chess participation and competition. An enthusiastic group of students can be regularly seen playing chess in the library â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from before classes begin, as well as during recess and lunchtimes. In recent years the school has participated in various competitions including the Tri-College Championship which encompasses a tournament each term with students from St Josephâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s College and Grovedale College.

Labor versus Liberal: Geelong MP Ian Trezise, left, and South Barwonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Andrew Katos.

MPs brawl on cuts, spending BY NOEL MURPHY A WAR of words has broken out between MPs Ian Trezise and Andrew Katos over their work performance in State Parliament. Geelong Labor MP Ian Trezise slammed Mr Katos over cuts to TAFE funding and firefighting and public service jobs, saying he needed to show some backbone and better defend Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interests. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Gordonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lost $14 million, the CFA and the MFB are losing $44 million and 4200 public service jobs are to be cut, some from Geelong, and Andrew Katos is missing in action,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Trezise said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are all major issues for Geelong. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been going through Hansard and his speeches

on the floor of parliament this year and not once has he mentioned the cuts to Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gordon TAFE or any of these.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;He and the other Liberal members in Geelong should be banging on these doors of Ted Baillieu and their ministers but instead theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re deafening in their silence.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; But the Liberal South Barwon MP lashed back, comparing his own 71 speeches in parliament to Mr Treziseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 33. He accused Mr Trezise of misrepresenting the firefighting budget and ignoring a $500 million TAFE budget blowout under Labor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The CFA budget spiked last year when we spent an additional

Louise Monotti, a teacher librarian who organises the students, commented on the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s triumphs, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hosting and competing in these tournaments is an excellent opportunity for our students to be challenged by new opponents and further develops their skills and self-confidence. New friendships have also been formed with students from other schools.â&#x20AC;?

$66 million to implement the Black Saturday Royal Commission recommendations,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Katos said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s operational CFA budget is still higher than at any time under Labor.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Katos said uncapped TAFE spending was unstainable. The state could also not afford a public service growing at 5.3 per cent a year against a population increasing at two per cent. Mr Katos said budget revenue had been growing at 6.9 per cent a year while expenditure was climbing by 7.3 per cent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clearly, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not sustainable,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. noel.murphy@geelongindependent.com.au

Student Nick Green will be competing in the State Championship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our team is looking forward to the event at B r i g h t o n Grammar later this term. I expect there will be some quality players and we will have some lengthy and tight m a t c h e s . Hopefully we can do well.â&#x20AC;?

In the picture Join the club JOHN VAN KLAVEREN “We have members with various photographic interests and at all skill levels.” Bellarine Camera Club has meetings on the first and third Monday of the month, offering a range of activities. World-renowned underwater photographer Andrew Newton was a recent guest speaker. “Andrew is a local and he showed us some of the amazing fish and fauna he has photographed in our own Port Phillip Bay,” Darren explained. “It opened up a new world for some of our photographers.” The club runs regular displays of member’s photos as well as competitions, both with external judges and in-club peer judging.

Entries are both printed and digital, with competitions now regularly attracting up to 70 images. “We ran our first Easter display last year and that has become an annual event,” Darren said. The club had now accumulated a catalogue of local scenic shots as well as sports photography, landscapes and portraits. “It’s a valuable asset for the club and can inspire photographers to improve their work,” Darren said. The club is part of a three-way annual competition with Corio Bay and Colac camera clubs. “We’re still finding our feet in the interclub scene but Bellarine members won a first place in the electronic images category and third in the large print section recently,” Darren said. “Next year is our turn to host, so it’ll be all stops out to win in 2013.” Darren said prospective members could contact membership secretary Roger Northam on 0419 254 525 or northam25@bigpond.com for more information.

THE LINE between amateur and professional photographer is blurring as digital technology levels the playing field. It has certainly made a difference to the increased memberships of camera clubs. Bellarine Camera Club president Darren Humphrey said numbers had grown steadily to more than 40 keen snappers. “We started with four or five in July 2009, so there are a lot of keen photographers around the Bellarine,” Darren said. “Most of us wanted a local club instead of driving into Geelong, so we set up a Bellarine club based at Springdale Neighbourhood Centre so we’re central to the peninsula. “We pride ourselves on being open and friendly and we normally have a visitor or new member each meeting. “We aim to provide a positive environment for members to learn about photography and develop their skills through competitions and presentations by local professional photographers.

buckets BUCKETS to people who cuss in public. Why should we be forced to listen to obscenities. Sensitive, Norlane BOUQUETS to an extremely helpful and caring lady who came to my young sister’s aid at a bus stop in President’s Ave, Ocean Grove, on September 5. Without your considerable effort she would have missed her flight from Tullamarine Airport. Elder Sister, Ocean Grove BUCKETS to an impatient driver. I slammed on my brakes to avoid hitting a little boy chasing a ball onto the street only to watch the driver approach from behind, pass me and yell obscenities, narrowly missing the panicking boy. He should have thought about why I stopped so suddenly. Still Shaking, Highton BOUQUETS to a kind South Barwon supporter for returning my lost glasses to the St Joseph’s club rooms for my grandson to collect. I am so grateful. Cam’s Granny, Bell Post Hill BOUQUETS to the girls at Bean Squeeze in Mercer St. I was on my phone in the drive-through, asking a nurse whether it would be okay for my mother to have coffee two days after heart surgery. When the girls overhead me they said the coffee was on the house. Coffee Lover, Hamlyn Heights BOUQUETS to Powercor and Telstra for prompt action fixing a cable box that had been hitting its concrete pole continually during fierce wind. Power On The Line, Newtown BOUQUETS to Mr Dandy and Mr Dowling for a fantastic Belmont Primary School concert. Tears of joy, pride and laughter were shed. It was an outstanding event. The children should be proud of their excellent performances and lovely behaviour. Impressed, Belmont BOUQUETS to a lovely lady who handed in my pink leather handbag after I left it hanging on a shopping trolley outside ADLI Belmont on September 12. The kindness was greatly appreciated. Lynne, Grovedale

bouquets BOUQUETS to the kind person who delivered my car keys to Corio Shopping Centre management after I left them behind while rushing to a doctor. You did not leave your name but your honesty saved a lot of worry. LL, Corio BUCKETS to a pair of young girls who picked up my purse from under a table in a new Moorabool St bakery on September 10, stole the money inside and returned the purse to the floor. I hope you used the money wisely. Kim, Highton BOUQUETS to Jim’s Antennas’ Brian for great service, help and technical assistance from a nice bloke. It was good to deal with someone who had a friendly, patient demeanor. Oldies, Herne Hill BUCKETS to a Pakington St cafe for asking us to leave a table for waiting customers without enquiring whether we had finished. I’m sure the Cats players dining at the cafe were not asked to vacate their tables. Disgruntled Customers, Ocean Grove BOUQUETS to the friendly team at South Pacific Pools and Spas. They repaired leaks in our spa even though the job was tough. We appreciated their expertise and prompt service. Peter and Tina, Norlane BOUQUETS to Aberdeen Plumbing for responding so quickly to a small job, which my mum had been trying to have addressed for months. Melissa, Highton BOUQUETS to Geelong Hospital’s emergency department staff, administration, nurses and the lovely doctor we saw for such quick attention for my two-year-old son. They made the stress dissipate rapidly. Bouquets also to the gentleman who gave us his parking ticket outside the hospital. Vicki, Leopold

letters Bay West later I REFER to the Independent’s September 7 story headlined: Bay West proposal ‘ignored’. Port of Hastings is without doubt the best option for future development and investment in Victoria’s freight capacity. In 2009, when Tim Pallas was ports minister in the former Labor government, he said: “The Port of Hastings is well positioned to serve as Victoria’s second container port…no other port offers the same overall benefits as the Port of Hastings”. Labor knew that Port of Hastings was the best option for port development in 2009, they knew it last year when they supported our legislation to create the Port of Hastings Development Authority and they know it now. Mr Pallas’s recent opposition to Hastings was nothing more than blatant hypocrisy from a former minister desperate for a headline. The Victorian Coalition Government has a welldeveloped strategy to meet the state’s rising demand for additional container freight capacity. We have approved a $1.6 billion expansion of the Port of Melbourne to meet short to medium-term forecasts and committed to developing Hastings. Hastings is already a natural deep-water commercial port with fantastic access to international shipping channels and nearly 4000 hectares of land zoned for port use. Bay West is under consideration as an option for 50 or more years’ time. We will continue considering it within the context of our $5 million Victorian freight and logistics plan, examining options for the next 50 years. Denis Napthine MLA Minister for Ports

THE FORTHCOMING mayoral election has resulted in much information being available on the respective candidates and their ability in their role of mayor. This is all very necessary for ratepayers to cast an intelligent vote. What is less forthcoming is the effect introduction of an American system of election of mayor, so very different from the Westminster System, will have on the role of the mayor in the decision making of council, voting at meetings and administrative of the municipality. Will City of Greater Geelong, with annual revenue of more than $200 million and assets of close to $2 billion, continue to be administered by a team or by one person? Since the mayor will being elected by the ratepayers of all the municipality, as distinct from councillors elected by ward ratepayers, what will be the relationship between the councillors and the mayor? Will the mayor be subject to the same disclosures and requirements as those required of councillors? The incoming mayor will have a significant increase in salary on the incumbent mayor. Does this carry with it additional responsibilities and privileges to the advantage of the council? The answers to the many questions that arise from this new venture must be made clear by State Government before and not after the election. A detailed document must be available immediately so the public and not just the ratepayers and councillors are left in no doubt as to the precise power of Geelong’s number-one public servant. Bert Bell Belmont

IT IS concerning to hear that the intended election for mayor of Geelong will be a postal vote. Though cost-cutting measures are welcome in any political sphere or activity, issues around scrutineering of the vote count must be addressed. No mention has been made in the local press as to where scrutineering will be conducted and by whom. The natural concern is that the process is easily open to electoral fraud. Given that government and council, generally, are

remiss on openness and accountability questions, this question needs to be answered. All things electoral need to be completely above board and I am sure this paper will seek to address these concerns in future issues of this paper. Gary Oraniuk Geelong West

Friends indeed VEGETATION planted over the years along Waurn Ponds Creek is looking magnificent along the wellused track used by walkers, runners and dog owners. I am so grateful to Friends of the Waurn Ponds Creek, which meets on the first Sunday of the month to plant native trees, shrubs and grasses. I have been to a couple of its mornings and it’s a friendly, sociable group. Monica Winston Belmont

Healthy respect VOLUNTEERS are a precious and oft undervalued human resource. Without their unpaid services, the community would be far worse off in terms of the quality of service. However, it is important that aged and ageing volunteers always be respected and treated with dignity. Sadly, not all community organisations that utilise them do so to the extent they should. One that does treat volunteers well is Barwon Health. My personal experience with this large health services provider, has been both a positive and immensely rewarding one. I can recommend the organisation without reservation to anybody interested in volunteer work. Michael J Gamble Belmont

State of suffering THE LATEST unemployment data released for the month of August is further evidence the Geelong region is suffering under the Baillieu Government. Last month 12,400 jobs were lost in rural and regional Victoria, with 10,100 of then lost in the Geelong-Western District region alone. There has been public service jobs slashed, with an announcement of further jobs cut at Queenscliff Marine Discovery Centre last week (Independent, September 14). The Baillieu Government continually demonstrates it lack of commitment to manufacturing in Geelong, with one member of the Government recently stating in parliament that Geelong manufacturing ought to move to Thailand. Since the Baillieu Government came to power Geelong has been taken off the priority list. It seems that this Government believes the Geelong region was given too much under Labor. While these thoughts are festering in the Baillieu Government ranks, Geelong is suffering. Gayle Tierney MP Member for Western Victoria

Ban solariums FIVE years ago Victorian woman Clare Oliver died from preventable melanoma linked to solarium use, aged just 26. Her illness shocked the community as a tragic reminder of just how dangerous these machines are. On September 13 SunSmart and 161 health experts joined forces to call for an outright ban on solariums. VicHealth supports this move. Solariums are unsafe and unnecessary and must be shut down before any more young lives are lost. Jerril Rechter VicHealth chief executive officer

Cash advance BY CHERIE DONNELLAN JOHNNY Cash’s honesty drew Daniel Thompson to the rock and roll legend’s music but sharing a similar tone sweetened the deal. “I consider myself lucky that I can sing somewhat like Cash,” Thompson told the Independent. “I admire him because he worked in an industry where it can be death to express your views but he didn’t have a problem standing up for the underdog.” Thompson will show off his rich baritone in a two-hour performance at Geelong Performing Arts Centre next month. Thompson said he emulated Cash without “playing” him. “I think the best way to approach Cash songs is to pay tribute to his music. “There are plenty of people playing Cash but I didn’t want to pretend to be him – that’s a hard task.” Thompson defended Cash against critics who considered him a weak vocalist. “He’s much better than people give him credit for,” Thompson contended. “People seem to like what he brought to the stage but think he wasn’t a great singer. “But as someone who sings his songs, I think they’re complicated and tough to sing.” Thompson found Cash’s repertoire a “welcome challenge”. Cash’s lyrics spoke “many truths” that earned him his “everyman” likeability, Thompson insisted. Cash’s Man in Black persona “wasn’t exaggerated”. “Even though he never spent more than a night in prison, I don’t think he’d be able to go into a prison and perform, to sit up there and speak to them, if he wasn’t genuine in the way he felt. “They’re the guys who’d have seen straight through him.” Thompson’s backing band is guitarist Stuie French, bassist Arty Taylor and drummer Ben Elliot.

Pirates of the GPAC BY CHERIE DONNELLAN “IT’S TWO blokes attacking a pirate show with gusto” is how Joss McWilliam describes stage show Treasure Island. McWilliam said the “welcome challenge” of playing eight characters in the two-man show was a chance to relive his childhood. “Treasure Island was my favourite book as a kid.” The play, adapted from Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel by Queensland playwrights Michael Futcher and Helen Howard, was a 55minute “unpretentious, high energy” performance, McWilliam said. “This play is like a 3D pop-up version of the book.” McWilliam plays “most of the baddies” including infamous pirate Long John Silver. Co-star Thomas Larkin plays protagonist Jim Hawkins among others. McWilliam demonstrated his acting prowess during his interview with the Independent, breaking into convincing “Arr, me hearties” in the tones of his various characters. He created the voices during rehearsals until Treasure Island was “locked” in his brain. McWilliam spent eight years teaching acting in film and television after theatre sparked his interest in acting.

“I saw some great theatre in London in 1981 and I guess that began my acting career. “I did (Australian movie) The Coolangatta Gold in 1984 and kept working.” McWilliam appeared in a string of Australian TV shows and films including Pacific Drive. He joked about the show’s poor reception with audiences. “It was once rated the worst show on TV ever made. “I rang up my friend who was in a show that was ranked third in that pool and said ‘Ha, you only got bronze but I won’.” McWilliam laughed about his onscreen career but said he was “serious about theatre”. “What I love about theatre is the actor’s in charge. When you go out on that stage you rise or fall according to how you perform.” McWilliam believed the show was as entertaining for children as it was for adults. “Most adults read the book as children and I think they have a fond remembrance watching the play. “And the kids, they just love it – and I love it!” McWilliam will perform in Treasure Island at Geelong Performing Arts Centre on October 6.

Safe indoor climbing at The Rock arents can find peace of mind at Geelong’s The Rock Adventure Centre during school holidays. The Rock offers indoor climbing in a safe and controlled environment where kids can keep themselves entertained while enjoying terrific exercise at the same time. Parents can also try the The Rock’s climbing walls to discover a fun way to improve fitness. Indoor climbing uses all muscles simultaneously while providing an excellent low-impact fitness regimen. Climbers also enjoy boosts to their self-esteem as they overcome challenges and reach their climbing achievements. Parents who don’t want to climb can still be involved by holding their children’s safety ropes while they climb to share in their achievements. The Rock is also ideal for grandparents searching for ways to entertain grandchildren during holidays. Instructors are always available to help show beginners the ropes. The Rock’s climbing walls are designed to accommodate all levels, from beginners through to expert climbers. The Rock also has a huge bouldering area with short climbing walls that are only a few feet above a padded floor, so no safety rope or partner is required. The Rock will be open from midday, seven days a week during school holidays. Parents can relax with a coffee while the kids experience the thrill of climbing during the supervised holiday sessions. Ideal for primary school-aged children, the sessions run from 2pm to 4pm Monday to Friday during holidays. Bookings are recommended. For more information visit www.rockadventures.com.au, phone 52213101 or visit The Rock Adventure Centre at the extreme river end of Pakington Street, Newtown.

Rink operator Raul Aparicio says the sessions are always fun with music videos, lights and lots of games and activities throughout. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really fun and safe activity for kids of all ages,â&#x20AC;?

Body shape: Being a sedan in a market that favours hatchbacks may have been another reason for slow sales. Holden Epica has proven reliable to date and we see no reason why this won’t continue as by the time it was designed the Koreans had learnt a lot about build quality. As always, good cars can fall into bad hands so it still pays to have a professional inspection before forking out your hard-earned. The biggest feature of the Holden Epica are its straight-six petrol engines. Epica is easy to work on with a decent amount of underbonnet space. The layout is typical of a front-drive car with the exception of the extra pair of cylinders in the petrol model. Good home mechanics can do most of their own work – but we advise they steer clear of any safety items. A petrol engine should start easily and idle very smoothly, anything else is a sign to be wary. The 2.0-litre was underpowered by Australian drivers’ standards and may have been thrashed. Get a mechanic to check it out. Build quality is generally good, but listen for squeaks and rattles when driving on rough roads. We have driven a couple with noises behind the dashboard, noises that probably indicate parts aren’t spaced correctly. This is unlikely to be a cause for breakdown, but can be irritating. Check under the bonnet for signs of weeping at the petrol pump. It’s unlikely there will be engine oil leaks but have a look at the sump to be sure. Look for damage to the front wheels as the Epica is a bigger car than some drivers realise and the wheels may have been ‘kerbed’.

48 YEARS CONTINUOUS TRADING IN GEELONG : RACV

1047667-KS38-12

BY ERIC BLAIR olden Epica is a mid-sized family car that’s built by Holden’s South Korean General Motors affiliate, Daewoo and has been on sale in Australia since March 2007. Though it is an overseas design there was a lot of Aussie input in both the styling and the dynamics of the suspension and steering. Epica wasn’t a sales success during its time on the new-car market and it quietly slipped away in February 2011. The Epica was relatively expensive and the subject of an odd advertising campaign that barely showed the car at all. Being a sedan in a market segment that favours hatchbacks may have been another reason for slow sales. Its South Korean heritage didn’t do it any favours either, though there was some Holden input in the design and mechanical setup. The result is poor resale value that makes the Holden Epica a real bargain on the used-car front. The biggest feature of the Holden Epica are its straight-six petrol engines in a class that’s totally dominated by four-cylinder powerplants. The sixes come with capacities of 2.0 litres and 2.5 litres. The former offered only with a five-speed manual gearbox, the latter with an automatic transmission, also with five ratios. The six-cylinder engines are both delightfully smooth and give Epica an air of refinement. Performance is good without being outstanding as these are relatively small engines in a largish car. July 2008 saw the introduction of a turbo-diesel engine. This time with just four cylinders and a capacity of 2.0 litres. Epica has a good steering feel on the road, due to there being some Aussie design input in the suspension and steering. However, this family Holden may be firmer in its ride on medium to rough roads than some owners like. On motorways it’s impressively smooth and quiet. Boot space is good, an advantage of the sedan body as it has a longer tail than hatchbacks’.

sport Swans to swoop on premiership SOUTH Barwon and Bell Park clash at Simonds Stadium on Saturday, with the winner claiming Geelong Football League’s 2012 premiership cup. This is the third year in a row these two have met, with the ledger standing at one flag apiece after the Dragons won last year and the Swans triumphed in 2010. The Swans are a dominating force in the league, having played six of the past seven grand finals for five premierships. This year the Swans finished on top of the ladder and will rightly go into the grand final as hot favourites because Bell Park only just managed to make the five with only its superior percentage holding off Lara and Colac. Added to this is the fact that the Swans have beaten the Dragons both times they met this year, by 11 points in round six and 23 in round 15.

Local Footy FRANK MASON South Barwon is rumoured to be bidding farewell to first-year coach Josh McCann and it will be interesting how his players react to his leaving. One thing for sure is that the Swans have many outstanding players, led by forward Clinton Wells who defies the odds each year by continuing to dominate other sides with his marking and goalkicking prowess. He has willing allies all around the ground in the

likes of Paul Corrigan, Anthony Biemans, Casey Tutungi and Joel Edwards, who are all ready to follow his lead and do the hard things that make a side successful. Bell Park will be no easy-beat because it has a strong core group of able players that can match it with the best. Tim Sheringham and Ben Armstrong took on the coaching roles this year and have done extremely well to get the side to the grand final after the loss of key players during the off-season. Stepping up to the plate have been Ben Johnson, Tyler Stack and Ben Kennedy, who complement established stars Jason Graham, Nick Batchelor and Rowan McSparron. The Dragons have had a gruelling three-week final campaign, while the Swans have enjoyed two out of three weeks off and will be fresh and willing.

This definitely gives them an advantage and will help the Swans over the line in a game that will be closer than many expect. St Joseph’s and Newtown meet in the reserves, while St Mary’s and Joeys kick off the day in the colts division one grand final. Geelong Football Netball League also plays its grand finals this weekend, with a full day of games at the Arena on Sunday. Leopold and South Barwon battle it out in A grade, with West Saints and Bell Park meeting in B grade. Last Saturday Bell Post Hill made it three Geelong and District Football League premierships in a row, with its precise brand of football wearing down East Geelong. Queenscliff beat Torquay to claim consecutive Bellarine Football League flags.

Snapper go on the bite in bay’s outer-harbour as pike turn up early

BRIAN LONG SNAPPER came on the bite in Corio Bay’s outer-harbour in the past week. Clifton Springs produced fish between a 1kg and 5.5kg, with the bigger fish taken on bait and the smaller specimens on soft plastics. Paul Blackborrow fished in near perfect conditions last Saturday for a 48cm snapper off the Springs. The same area rewarded Damian Brimley with a pair of fish just over 3kg each. Graham Blake drifted the Hermsley spoil grounds with soft plastics, catching mostly undersize snapper but finishing a pair of 45cm fish. Graham also managed a feed of nice rock flathead and two pike reaching 80cm. The southern edge of Wilson Spit rewarded Paul Stirling on the run-off from high tide when he landed a pair of big snapper to 5.65kg. Paul used fresh squid caught earlier in the day off Portarlington. Nathan Boyle fished the nine-foot bank on Monday afternoon, with small snapper constantly attacking baits. Everything changed just on dark when two rods folded simultaneously with a pair of 3kg snapper. Salmon were holding up between Clifton Springs and Point Henry. Most were small but fish to 1.5kg were taken on soft plastics cast into the surface action. Pike seemed to have moved in a month early, with anglers trolling small bibbed lures along the Curlewis Bank taking fish

over 1m. Stuart Baltimore caught and released 11 on a 10cm Barra Bruiser in the 2.5m diving depth. Danny Shorten found pike on the Stingaree Bay spoil grounds, landing three around 65cm on Gulp soft plastics. Squid captures increased as the water cleared. St Leonards to Queenscliff was best, with small jigs in the more-natural colours working well. Lockie Scicluna showed his dad up on the squid fishing between Alcoa and Clifton Springs. Lockie found the

Yamashita and Gancraft 2.5 jigs successful with the extremely fussy squid. Whiting captures remained consistent from St Leonards to Queenscliff. A few moves were sometimes needed to find the fish but bag-limit captures were common, particularly on fresh squid. Trevally showed up on the high tides in the cut at Queenscliff. Soft plastics are accounting for most of the fish, with curl tail grubs and turtleback worms in the Motor Oil Gold or Pumpkinseed colours working well.

Surf anglers contended with milky coloured water along the coast, with most captures only coming on the high tides. The rock platforms between Lorne and Apollo Bay should be better if the water clears this weekend. Freshwater action was limited. Deep Lake was quiet but Tooliorook faired better for shore-based anglers who caught rainbow trout on Powerbait. Boat anglers enjoyed the best results, taking good numbers of redfin in the open water on vibe style lures.

Lake Learmonth excelled, with trout around 1.5kg caught on Powerbait and mudeye. Lure worked best, especially the likes of metallic coloured Pins Minnows and SX40s in the discoloured water. Lake Wendouree was productive for anglers casting small Rapala minnow pattern lures in either the rainbow or trout colours. Lake Bullen Merri returned rainbow trout taken on Powerbait, although trolling accounted for the best brown trout and Atlantic salmon. Standout lures were Tassie Devils in the gold wing patterns. Lake Purrumbete’s redfin comprised the best bags of fish, caught on live minnow, soft plastics and vibes. Rainbow trout were liberated last weekend into local family fishing lakes in and around Geelong, giving kids an opportunity to catch a fish in relative safety and comfort close to home during school holidays. Seagull Paddock received 800, St Augustines received 500 and lakes at Bannockburn and Lethbridge 250 each. Wurdee Boluc Reservoir produced some reasonable brown trout, with bait anglers successful on worms and mudeye, although lure anglers generally took the best fish. Michael Evans landed a nice brown on a Daiwa Double Clutch, a deep-diver that covers plenty of water. Offshore breezes predicted for this weekend should combine with high tides late in the afternoon for ideal salmon fishing along the coast, while snapper anglers should try Black Rock up to dark. Lake Tooliorook should be fantastic, especially for redfin when fishing the open stretches of the lake while drifting with either local minnow or casting and retrieving vibe-style lures.
