Troupers seek centre for arts By CHERIE DONNELLAN

FEASIBILITY STAGE: Torquay Theatre Troupe’s Michael Lampkin, Maryanne Doolan, Gay Bell and Mark Tonzing in character for their latest production. Picture: TOMMY RITCHIE 90113

TORQUAY’S thespians will ask council to consider a theatre and arts facility in a $250,000 feasibility study of redeveloping the town’s Surf World precinct. Torquay Theatre Troupe’s Gay Bell said Mayor Libby Coker had discussed the proposed facility with the group when she previously held council’s top job 2010. Ms Bell said funding was unavailable at the time but council provided “minor stage facilities” in a $1 million upgrade of Torquay Senior Citizens centre last year. The troupe appreciated the facilities but they were unsuited to most theatre productions for a range of reasons, she said. “There’s a lot we can’t do in that hall.” Ms Bell said advertising the Senior Citizens hall as the venue for the troupe’s productions also deterred younger audiences. “They think the show will just be aimed at older people but we want to do shows that attract a wide audience. “If we had a dedicated arts centre we could provide a space for music nights, theatre and musical productions and hopefully we could have an art house cinema, too, for locals to enjoy. Ms Bell said wanted a similar facility to Drysdale’s Potato Shed, not “a GPAC”. Council has announced that development consultant GHD and Royce would identify “opportunities for improved community, tourism and cultural facilities” as part of the study. Consultations would begin early next year, a council statement said.

‘Let them die their way’ By NOEL MURPHY “EXCRUCIATING.’’ That’s the description Bellbrae’s June Plate offers as witness to the brain cancer death of husband Dieter. She has called for enactment of euthanasia laws allowing assisted death for the terminally ill so they avoid the suffering and indignity her late husband endured. Mr Plate, formerly a leading scientist, was left unable to communicate or walk and was totally

Ten days before dying he refused to eat or drink. “This was not how he wanted to die,” Ms Plate told the Independent. “He was a clever man and wanted to die with all his faculties and his family. “For me, it was excruciating, every day, to witness death so slowly approaching.

Trees lack ‘historical significance’ By JOHN VAN KLAVEREN FIFTEEN ash trees controversially facing the chop on the banks of the Barwon River in Newtown are “not historically significant”, according to Corangamite Catchment Management Authority. The CCMA’s November newsletter said the authority was now awaiting an arborist’s report on the trees to determine their fate. “CCMA initially delayed tree removal work in response to community concerns that the trees had historical significance. Meetings with City of Greater Geelong councillors, relevant staff and sub-

sequent investigations indicate the trees are not historically significant,” the newsletter said. “In response to community feedback, CCMA has agreed Fyans Park must continue to have shade trees available and will not proceed with removing all the ash trees. “The City of Greater Geelong has also agreed to engage a qualified arborist to assess the trees’ health and identify suitable replacements to be planted adjacent to the existing ash trees. “The arborist’s report, due in November, will help inform a final decision, which will be made

in consultation with community representatives and the City of Greater Geelong.” Councillor Stretch Kontelj, who initiated a council motion to investigate the trees, said the arborist’s inquiry investigated the trees’ health, life expectancy and maintenance issues. “I’m comfortable they won’t touch the trees,” Cr Kontelj said. “They’re looking brilliant and in full bloom at the moment. Now everyone can see the value of these trees and see why the community is so passionate about retaining them. “Who in their right mind would want to cut them down?” 1055041-KG46-12

HERE’S HOPING: Tina and Marty Wilkinson. Picture: Tommy Ritchie 90086

ST ALBANS Park couple Tina and Marty Wilkinson’s decision to adopt a child was “very automatic” after realising they were unable to conceive naturally. “I always had in my heart I wanted to adopt at some stage in life,” Ms Wilkinson said. “Being able to save a child from a terrible situation by giving them a two-parent, lovable home is very important. “This has led us to do something maybe we wouldn’t have gone to do otherwise.” The Wilkinsons are networking through Facebook with prospective adoptive parents in the Geelong region to begin a “pre-parents” friendship group, Holding Hope. “You may not know anyone else who’s been there, you may be hanging on tales of a friend of a friend of a friend,” the Facebook page said. “Holding Hope is about connecting you with others in the Geelong area who are also spending their evenings deliberating over forms and sifting through poorly constructed websites for much needed information.” Ms Wilkinson said the couple had so far faced struggles including difficulty communicating with Department of Human Services. “We just really wanted to connect and talk to people. I’ve got friends to talk to and good family support but it’s not the same as someone who can really empathise,” Ms Wilkinson said. Anyone interested in Holding Hope could email helloholdinghope@gmail.com or visit its Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/holding.hope.7, she said.

Protecting the eyes that protect us Lifeguards all along the coast are combining with OPSM Waurn Ponds this summer to ensure locals are adequately protecting their eyes from the sun. OPSM’s partnership with the Australian Professional Lifeguard Association (APOLA) ensures that the eyes of those who protect us are themselves well protected. Lifeguards spend their days under some of the harshest UV conditions in the world and well-fitted sunglasses are a vital part of their equipment.

Equally important for the rest of us is protection from the sun as we go about our daily tasks outdoors. OPSM Waurn Ponds optometrist, Rowan Prendergast, says that 62% of Australian adults are unsure if their sunglasses provide 100 per cent UV blockage, according to a national survey by Optometrists Association Australia (OAA). This is despite 60% indicating they are concerned about the risk of UV damage to their eyes.

“The high levels of UV on the Surf Coast can cause long-term harm to your eye health. Damage is cumulative and the choices you make now will affect you in the future,” he said. 70% of survey participants were unaware of specific eye health risks from sun exposure which include cataracts, macular degeneration, melanoma and pterygium.

Ford calls ‘shutdown’ to slash Geelong jobs FORD’S Geelong plant will shut down this Friday as the company meets workers individually to spell out their fate under a latest redundancy program. The initial redundancy target of 440 across Ford’s Geelong and Broadmeadows plants has fallen to 330 after redeployments across the business. Staff have taken up 118 voluntary packages, leaving 212 involuntary job losses in a split of roughly 40:60 between Geelong and Broadmeadows respectively. Staff sources described the number

to go against their will in Geelong as “considerably less’’ than initially proposed. But the 40:60 ratio would equate to about 80 unwanted layoffs at the North Geelong plant. Ford staffers told the Independent Ford arranged the private meetings to avoid unhappy groups massing together. Management declined to comment on Friday’s sackings other than to say the private meetings were organised at the request of workers. Ford declined to specify the numbers of workers to be laid off volun-

tarily or involuntarily in Geelong. Ford and unions were thrashing out the details of redundancy packages at Fair Work Australia as the Independent went to press. Ford will reduce its production schedule from 209 units to 148 across all models, in line with its reduced workforce. The auto-maker’s redundancies come a week after Qantas announced another 250 heavy maintenance job cuts at Avalon Airport following completion of work on nine of the carrier’s 747-400 jumbo aircraft. Earlier this year Qantas cut more

than 100 jobs at Avalon. The latest round of layoffs will halve the engineering workforce at Avalon to around 340. Ford faces an uncertain future as sales of its flagship Falcon continue to decline despite growth in Territory sales. Industry observers such as Wheels magazine have suggested that Ford is doomed in Geelong and Broadmeadows despite government assistance to maintain operations until 2016. Hopes for the Geelong plant lie heavily with the company’s product development operations and their usefulness in the brand’s global operations.

‘Shock’ over training jobs privatisation

Cook stays BRIAN Cook has rejected an “attractive offer” from North Melbourne to instead stay chief executive officer of Geelong Football Club. Mr Cook announced his decision on Wednesday, with Cats skipper Joel Selwood describing it as “fantastic news”.

Dorling quits PETER Dorling has resigned as executive director of private lobby group Committee for Geelong, chairman Michael Betts has announced. He said Mr Dorling, who was embroiled in controversy when he released committee membership details to a Liberal candidate for Geelong’s mayoral election, had made an “invaluable contribution” to the organisation.

Corio centre A NEW shopping centre is set to adjoin Corio’s ALDI store, council has revealed. Councillors voted this week to exhibit a draft planning permit for a single-storey centre with one “major tenant”, 11 smaller shops and 94 parking spaces on a .8 hectare site.

Hall cash A $63,000 State Government grant will help upgrade St Leonards Community Hall, Upper House MP David Koch has announced. The Member for Western Victoria said the project was “relatively small in scale” but would have an “enormous impact” on the town.

Snapper fine A MAN must pay an $800 fine and $1580 in court costs after contesting fines for taking eight undersize snapper at Corio Quay, according to Department of Primary Industries. The department said fisheries officers initially gave the man on-the-spot fines totalling $610 but he decided to take the matter to court.

By JOHN VAN KLAVEREN A STATE Government proposal to privatise Victoria’s 33 apprenticeship field officers has blindsided Geelong’s vocational education and training organisations. The officers (AFOs) investigate disputes between employers and their apprentices or trainees. They also support apprentices or trainees alleging workplace violence and harassment, provide counselling and help training providers with information. The Barwon South-West region has three AFOs, two in Geelong and one in Warrnambool, seconded to Gordon Institute of TAFE. The AFOs service about 6500 apprentices and trainees in the region, with 40,000 using the officers across the state. State Government has lodged online an advance tender proposal for “Procurement of Apprenticeship and Traineeship Regulatory Field Services”, to be advertised on Wednesday. The Independent understands that the tender is aimed at cutting Government spending of $2 million annually on AFOs. Vocational education and training organisations are concerned the process could result in fewer field officers and reduced support for apprentices and trainees. Gordon chief Grant Sutherland said he was aware of the proposed tender but not of any changes “to the way these roles will be funded or positioned within the community”. “We do know that no changes will be made until July 1, so these positions will continue to be based at The Gordon and offer the same service to apprentices and trainees in the region.” A spokesman for training minister Peter Hall had not replied to the Independent’s call for comment when the paper went to press.

Toilet role GEELONG’S new mayor has joined other councillors in adopting a public toilet strategy as one of the few items of business in his first council meeting. Keith Fagg said the strategy aimed to provide a five-year plan for upgrading and maintaining toilets across the municipality.

GOOD SPORTS: Renee Lane with Belmont High School Superkidz entrants Louis, Laura and Connor. Picture: TOMMY RITCHIE 89677

Call for Superkidz to tri fun challenge CHILDREN of all abilities will enjoy fun and fitness in a tailored triathlon on Geelong’s waterfront in February. The Geelong Independent Superkidz Triathlon is seeking entrants aged seven to 13 for the event on Saturday, February 9. Children aged seven to 10 will compete in a mini-triathlon comprising a 100-metre swim, a threekilometre cycle and a 500m run. Children aged 11 to 13 will compete over a slightly longer course with a 200m swim, a 5km cycle and a 1km run. The Superkidz Triathlon will also include a Family Wave category for a family member to compete alongside a participating child under 10 on the shorter course.

The event will be part of a third annual Geelong Multi Sport Festival from February 8 to 10. Managing editor Tony Galpin said the Independent was rapt to be involved in the festival again through sponsorship of the Superkidz Triathlon. The event would encourage children to participate in sports and promote healthy lifestyles, he said. “As well as a fun day out on Geelong’s waterfront, the Superkidz Triathlon will be a great opportunity for children to have a go and find out whether they’d like to go further in this wonderful sport.” Each Superkidz participant receives a competitor’s T-short and a finisher’s medal.

Elite Geelong triathlete Renee Lane said the event was a “perfect mix” for all children. “I get such a buzz from the Superkidz event because it gives so many young local kids the chance to get out there and have some fun with their friends while doing some exercise.” A Carter Group Special Tri for people with disabilities will run in conjunction with the Superkidz event. Special tri participants can have a “buddy” to compete alongside them. Superkidz and special tri entries are open online at geelongmultisport.com.au, by phoning 8698 200 or emailing multisport@usmevents.com.au.

YOUR WEEKLY HEALTH TIP IS FEAR OF JUDGEMENT HOLDING YOU BACK? Frightened to get fit for fear of being judged? Always hiding at the back of each fitness class? Being overweight or in a poor state of health is not something we can hide, because people around us already know. Judgements are more likely to be cast on those that do nothing. So if fear is standing in the way of better health, inspire onlookers by putting the attention back on yourself. The way you treat yourself will set the standard for others.

Gordon finalises job cuts to hit 55 By NOEL MURPHY

GORDON TAFE will axe 55 jobs and 27 courses as it realigns its operations in response to a $14.6 million state funding cut, the institute has revealed. Gordon released its finalised cuts to the Independent on Wednesday, with the majority of the job losses in management and the courses from within sport and recreation, hospitality, retail and visual arts sectors. Chief executive officer Grant Sutherland said Gordon would allow students to finish second-year studies in affected courses and would continue offering its VET-in-Schools program. Gordon plans to offer 23 new courses next year in biotechnology, health, small business and community services. Mr Sutherland said the 55 job losses would include “some voluntary redundancies’’. He did not specify the number. The cuts would be across all areas and levels of the institute. The Gordon would continue offering more than 220 accredited courses and over 170 specialist short courses.

Fifteen courses were scheduled for delivery in neighbouring City of Wyndham and Gordon had increased the number of its on-line courses, Mr Sutherland said. “The overriding principle in these decisions has been to protect and maximise our core purpose in delivery of education and training and meeting industry and community needs,’’ he said. “This is our priority – as is staying true to our vision, mission and role as a public provider.’’ Mr Sutherland said the budget cuts required “difficult decisions to be made’’. Gordon had worked hard to achieve the “best outcomes possible’’ for its long-term sustainability, he said. Mr Sutherland stressed that despite the cuts, and in contrast to changes at other TAFEs, Gordon had retained its City and East Geelong campuses, libraries and training restaurants at both and disability support services. Mr Sutherland said Gordon had maintained its public provider role as best it could, notably with Geelong’s Northern Futures program, a presence in Colac and in assisting Geelong workers to find new jobs.

WALLINGTON GIRL: First female Cricket Australia director Jacqueline Hey.

Beach cricket leads to national director By MICHELLE HERBISON A CHILDHOOD filled with beach and backyard cricket at Wallington sparked a lifelong love of the game in the sport’s first female national director. Cricket Australia’s Jacquie Hey told the Independent about her “lovely and uncomplicated life” growing up in Wallington. “There was zero to do except for sport – tennis, cricket and football. We used to go to Ocean Grove regularly and take the cricket sets to the beach. “If we didn’t have stumps we’d use the seaweed.” Ms Hey, a former managing director of Ericsson in four countries, was elected last month as Cricket Australia’s

first female director in its 107year history. “I’m not on the board because of extensive cricketing skills but I’ve always loved the game,” she said. “Being a woman also means at the front of my mind will be how to engage women in cricket. I’m also a mum, so will be thinking about how do we get kids into cricket.” Former Cricket Australia chairman and Borough of Queenscliffe councillor Bob Merriman was confident Ms Hey could perform the “challenging” job. “I don’t think it’s a sign of progress, it’s a sign that given the opportunity the best person for the job has been selected.”

Ex-Markets figure ‘picks TV winners’

Jobs safe in store shuffle ALL EMPLOYEES at Corio’s Bunnings store will keep their jobs when it closes for a new outlet at North Geelong, the company has announced. Bunnings said it would redeploy the 90 staff to the new store and others at Waurn Ponds and Torquay. The North Geelong outlet would

employ 180 workers for a net gain of 90 Bunnings jobs in the city. Bunnings said the North Geelong store would open in December and the Corio site would close in April. Bunnings Victorian state operations manager Simeon Boseley said the company was “really pleased” all Corio staff would retain jobs.

By NOEL MURPHY GEELONG collector boss Ian Ballis could reinvent himself in TV’s picker game following the crash of his Mill Markets empire. Mr Ballis features in a show that film company Chemical Media is pitching to stations in a bid to join the collector/picker reality TV genre proving popular with shows such as American Pickers, Hardcore Pawn and Cash Cowboys. Executive producer Tony Jackson confirmed Mr Ballis’s part in Finders Keepers. “We’ve got a show with Ian and we’re pitching it to broadcasters,” Mr Jackson told the Independent. “There’s no interest yet but we’re in talks.” The show was selling itself as a “modern day treasure hunt’’ in which eight of Australia’s top traders face off in a knockout competition putting their reputation on the line and their skills to the test. Traders have one day to use their wheeling and dealing skills to turn a $250 bankroll into a tasty profit.

Shell Process Engineering Team Leader, Peter Chernishoff, helps weed an area of Limeburners Bay that contains a mixture of re-vegetated indigenous plants and remnant salt marsh.

Getting picky: Ian Ballis in a still from a Finders Keepers pilot. They present their bargain buys from their $250 budget to an assessment panel featuring Mr Ballis. The highest assessment-earner goes to the next round and a chance to win everything collected throughout the series in a reality TV game of finders keepers, losers weepers.

Chemical Media is an independent production company set up by the team that brought Lonely Planet to TV. Mr Ballis told the Independent he hoped SBS or Channel 10 might screen the show. An administrator recently sold his former Mill Markets group to antique dealer Mark Ward.

News from Shell

LIMEBURNERS LINK VOLUNTEERING DAY More than 20 Geelong refinery employees enjoyed time away from the office last month when they participated in a Limeburners Link volunteering day. Managed by Greening Australia (Vic) and supported by Shell and the City of Greater Geelong (CoGG), Limeburners Link involves the environmental rehabilitation of Limeburners Bay – achieved through the training of local residents in a Certificate II in Conservation and Land Management. Shell volunteers participated in a range of activities including planting indigenous trees, weeding and bird monitoring. Their combined effort helped improve the biodiversity and habitat values of this internationally recognised site.

Shell Process Engineering Team Leader, Peter Chernishoff, said the day was a terrific team activity. “Not many people in our group knew the area existed, let alone that it had national and international significance as a natural heritage area,” said Peter.

GEELONG is literally abuzz as a combination of spring rain and warm weather sparks an outbreak of bee infestations, according to local apiarists. Edmond’s Honey owner John Edmond said bee swarming this year around the region was “extreme”. The insects were making a beeline for “large amounts of canola grown close to the urban areas,” Mr Edmond said. “Plus, the weather has caused rampant flowering of weeds and shrubs, so the bees have been breeding excessively. “It will get worse in the next month as the melaleucas come into flower with bottlebrushes.” Mr Edmond said spring produced swarming, in which hives filled with bees and honey and colonies split off to find alternative accommodation. “But this season’s swarming has been so prolific that many beekeepers have run out of (hive) boxes.” Ayrleigh Apiaries’ Evelyn Hill said he was busy as a bee keeping up with requests to remove swarms from Buzz off: Evelyn Hill with a bee-infested chest of drawers that has supplied 25kg of honey – with more to come.

Swarms were appearing from Lara to Highton, with the season normally continuing until April, Mr Hill said. Abandoned properties often attracted swarms, which then hived off to other nearby houses, he said. “I can guarantee there is a hive in one in every 100 houses in any suburb in Geelong. “I’ve been getting calls left, right and centre to remove bees from walls, under roof cavities, even in drums or old wine barrels. “I’m even working on a chest of drawers where the bees got in at the back. I’ve taken out 25kg of honey and I’m still not finished.” Mr Hill said an average hive housed up to 40,000 bees, with as many as 90 per cent “stingers”. Geelong’s high number of unregistered hives worsened the problem, he said. “All beekeepers should register their beehives, especially as those with less than five hives get free registration online with the Department of Primary Industries. “If we get a bee disease incursion we need to be able to find all hives quickly for testing if we’re going to prevent it spreading.”

FUTURE STILL FRIENDLY WITH SOLAR POWER With some recent changes to the solar power feed in tariff it is easy to become confused as to wether solar power is still a viable option in order to decrease ones everincreasing power costs. According to Simon Lodge and Guy Skewes the Directors of Future Friendly Solar, a local Electrical contracting company which specializes in solar power, the answer is YES as long as the system is tailor made to the customers power usage patterns. The feed-in Tariff only applies to any excess power not consumed by the householder during the day. Therefore the days of just installing the biggest system possible are over and now we have to look at the householders daily

usage patterns. For example a family who has a usage of around 20 kWH per day and has no-one at home during the week would no longer install a system of generating 20 kWH per day but a smaller system capable of around 10 kWH per day. This system would cover the power usage of the home refrigerators, washing machines , dryers and air conditioners. If the customer has a swimming pool the filters would now switch on during the day therefore eliminating the excess power being sold back into the grid.

premises where Simon and Guy expect to see large growth in the industry over the coming years. The beauty of this is that now customers can install a smaller and therefore cheaper solar system and yet still make significant savings to the household budget. Future Friendly solar now are offering high quality solar systems from $2,500 fully installed.

Of course larger houses with high daytime usage or 1 or both family members home during the day still benefit from larger systems. The same goes for farms and commercial

Roadsides are cleared in a systematic manner depending on the ability of the City staff to access the roadsides. Roadsides that are still to wet to be driven on are then cleared once the other roadsides have been completed. Some strategic roads may be cut a second time depending on a variety of factors. There will be sections of roadsides that cannot be slashed due to vegetation or other obstructions on the road reserve. LONG GRASS/GRASS FIRES There is above average risk of grass fires for the coming season. Grass fires are just as dangerous as bush fires. They are fast moving. As grass is a fine fuel, fire burns through it faster than through forest. Flames can reach 10 metres high. There are some areas of private land around Geelong where grass is knee high. During fire season make sure your grass is cut and maintained to a maximum height of 10cm.

The City has sent a letter to all owners of vacant residential land reminding that properties need to be maintained in a fire safe condition. Every year we receive hundreds of complaints from neighbours of properties that are suspected fire hazards. Every complaint is investigated by our Fire Prevention Officer and a notice is issued if remedial works are required.

COUNCIL has threatened fines and increased patrols for residents parking on a grassed area to avoid accidents on Highton’s busy Leigh Rd. Leigh Rd’s Dan Mathieson said several residents with multiple vehicles used the grassed area because of the speed and volume of traffic on the narrow road. Mr Mathieson said he received two parking fines recently because council deemend the area a nature strip, despite a lack of driveways. Council’s response to his complaint was to warn of fines for parking on nature strips and extending the hours of parking inspectors for the area to 9pm, he said. Mr Mathieson asked council engineering staff to inspect the situation. “The two council personnel agreed there’s an issue with the flow of traffic that prevents parking on both sides of the street. They also said approval has been given for further housing construction in the estate and traffic volumes will only increase.” Mr Mathieson said he suggested council cut into the grassed area to create parking bays, with an interim measure of issuing nature strip parking permits.

Another Leigh Rd Resident, Karl Groves, said he struggled to find onstreet parking when family or friends visited. “The road is very unsafe due to the new volumes of traffic and the lack of width when cars park at the kerb. “Hopefully we can get some quick resolution on this and have parking bays installed as soon as possible before we have a major accident with the new bus route and the continuous trucks, trade vehicles and cars speeding up our street.” City of Greater Geelong community services general manager Jenny McMahon said parking officers went to the area several times following complaints from residents about vehicles parked on nature strips and the adjacent road reserve. Ward councillor Ron Nelson said he understood the issues, with the crest of Leigh Rd presenting a blind spot and a nearby bus stop exacerbating the problem. “Common sense would say residents should be able to park on the grass because it’is dangerous to park on the street at that point. “I would look to make that option available to residents, probably through parking bays and appropriate signage, and I’ll speak with city officers about that.”

BOAT BUILDING SHED: Okke Jansma works on his model of the Fremantle-class patrol boat Geelong. ties of a formal organisation. “We still have a code of conduct, though, based around respect for each other. “We’re mates who get together, swap ideas, materials, and talents, have a beer and have a chat. “We participate in the Geelong wooden boat show, we visit other clubs in Melbourne and regional Victoria and they in turn visit us. “Some of our members are interested in tugs, some in sail boats or subs, freighters or liners - there’s a huge diversity of interests within the group. “Men’s sheds are huge now and this is our version. The club has been going 25 or 30 years with the same philosophy.” Okke dreamed of a huge hobby show combining the talents of all local interest clubs to demonstrate the depth of talents within the region.

“It would be great to show everyone what we can do. I’m sure it would generate a lot more interest.” Okke said timber would always be a significant part of building boats. “I have a soft spot for working with wood,” he confided, “because it’s easier to work with and a lot more forgiving.” Geelong Model Boat Club meets the first Sunday of each month at Deakin University’s Waurn Ponds campus lake. More information is available by phoning William Van Leuwen on 5282 3932. Okke and his fellow model boat experts will be at wood wrights’ annual woodcraft exhibition from 10am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday at Geelong’s State Government offices in Little Malop St.

THE CONTENTS of many of Geelong’s man caves will be hauled into the bright light of day during Barwon Valley Wood Wrights’ exhibition on this weekend. Among the exhibits will be the intricate model boat work of Okke Jansma and his fellow Geelong Model Boat Club devotees. Okke is working on a model of the Geelong, a Fremantleclass patrol boat used by Royal Australian Navy on fisheries, immigration, customs and drug law enforcement operations. It’s his second model patrol boat, the first being a German version that saw active service during World War II. In fact, it was the sight of one of the menacing KM Schnellboot S205 patrol boats cruising along the canals of Okke’s country of birth, Holland, that first sparked his childhood admiration of watercraft. “I can recall asking my dad what that ship was and I’ve remembered it ever since,” Okke reminisced. After two attempts at retiring, Okke finally turned his hand to model boats. “I enjoy getting away from it all in the man cave. It’s lovely to have a hobby - a man’s gotta have a shed,” Okke declared. He described the model boat club as “a loose affiliation of kindred spirits” without the usual formalities and administrative du-

Letters Fines for some I AM with Harry S Cook (Letters, November 9). We had a small property in Mt Duneed where trying to control the rabbit population was nigh impossible. We did our best, as did our neighbours, but the bunnies won every time. I find it extraordinary that Department of Primary Industries (DPI) can fine property owners for rabbits, which were introduced to the area by Thomas and Elizabeth Ashton in the 19th Century. The rabbit-proof fence didn’t work. Why doesn’t DPI fine the estate of the Ashtons for its founders’ lack of environmental awareness? Gerry Danckert Torquay

Depart-mental IT SEEMS our government departments have forgotten that they are run by the people for the people. Department of Primary Industry’s DPI acronym now stands for Department for Punishing Individuals and Department of Human Services’ DHS is Department for Human Sacrifices. Phil Daniels Ocean Grove

Licensed to kill ANOTHER elderly driver in Geelong recently lost control of his car and caused damage and injury. I am an older driver with a 57-year accident-free driving record. When I feel I am no longer confident to drive I will surrender my licence before I make a fool of myself or even kill somebody. When an elderly driver can no longer tell the difference between the brake pedal and the gas pedal it is time to hand in their licence. Otherwise they give other capable older drivers a bad name and force authorities to introduce measures that make our lives more difficult by curtailing the use of motor cars. Far be it from me to belittle the impact of these accidents caused by older drivers but they are unintentional albeit regretful accidents and, unfortunately, each time the media has a field day with them. When young lead-footed petrol heads create havoc on our roads and kill each other by the dozen it is not accidental but a deliberate misuse of a motor car and a blatant disregard of road laws. Werner Schuhmann Newtown

Fagg has mandate, now all he needs is Jeff MAYOR Keith Fagg would be much better able to go into bat for his constituency with a regional flow-on by having a paid advocate who’s been there and done that rather than having to be handicapped by the impost of a myriad governance bureaucrats, councillors, committees and chambers. While local governance consultancy from time to time results in little more than appeasing councillors with pricey, weighty, glossy recommendations going nowhere, such monies would be well-spent by approaching Jeff Kennett to give Cr Fagg a bunk-up. The former premier has an interest in seeing through what he kick-started on the waterfront. He might also have discretionary time on his hands since relinquishing Hawthorn Football Club’s presidency and his hard-nosed persona would complement Cr Fagg with state, federal and overseas interfacing. Mr Kennett’s role would be ratepayers’ money wellspent. Richard Worland Manifold Heights

Mayor: Keith Fagg. KEITH Fagg received an overwhelming mandate to proceed with the policies he took into the recent mayoral election, receiving no less than 62.32 per cent of the vote after the distribution of preferences. However, it remains to be seen whether he will be able to implement the policies that catapaulted him into office. Michael J Gamble Belmont LAST week Mayor Keith Fagg visited the site of the Victorian Government’s New Norlane, an $80 million housing initiative with more than 320 “affordable” public and

private homes to be built. The big question is whether the homes will be designed and built sustainably using passive solar principles, which cannot be retrofitted. Geelong has some brilliant sustainable architects, mostly graduates from Deakin University’s School of Architecture and Building, who focus on sustainability for good reason. About 80 per cent of existing housing stock has been and still is poorly designed to use ultra-cheap energy. They will be difficult and expensive, if not unaffordable, to retrofit. The context for Geelong is obvious: climate change, peak oil, financial instability, rising energy costs and job losses through the impending closure of three major industries and their associated businesses. Do we want to condemn new residents, many on low incomes, to cheap homes that cost the Earth to maintain? Geelong can lead the way with authentically low-cost, attractive, innovative housing design and construction, enabling residents to keep costs down for years to come - a win-win solution.

dered thousands of our POWs, desecrated our memorials with the wreaths for their war dead. The Australian Government was wrong to allow this to happen. According to the Australian War Memorial Act 1980 section 5(1), the memorial is for Australians who have died as the result of any war or warlike operations in which Australians were on active service. An encyclopaedia’s interpretation says: “The

Australian War Memorial is Australia’s national memorial to the members of all its armed forces and supporting organisations who have died or participated in the wars of the Commonwealth of Australia”. There is no way Japan and Germany are or were members of the Commonwealth, therefore their laying of wreaths on our Australian War Memorial was illegal and should be stopped. Bob Thompson Ocean Grove

Climate bull…t CLIMATE Change Minister Greg Combet had said in Melbourne that everything Tony Abbott has said about climate change was complete “bull…t”. Putting aside the inppropriate use of language by a minister of the Crown, Mr Combet would know a thing or two about bull crap, seeing as he practises the art as well as he does by relying on the cherrypicked data of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The claims for climate change are not proven - they are merely assumptions based on computer modelling. In 1975 scientists warned of an impending ice age. Now they warn of serious global warming. This raises an interesting question: either the scientists in the ‘70s were a pack of dills or the present generation of doomsayers with global warming are. You can’t have it both ways. In his book, The Climategate Emails, John Costella points out a deliberate effort to steer thinking on climate in a certain direction. Mr Costella also alleges the data has been massaged to produce a certain conclusion. There is a wide gap between the data in the papers and the IPCC’s Summary for Policy Makers, which governments have uncritically accepted and which forms the basis of modern climate change legislation. Until the IPCC and its fellow travellers prove their assertions in the summary, any country would be unwise to spend billions of dollars trying to solve the alleged problem of global warming.

Regular boy’s festival hunch

Television, Events, Activities, Theatre

Van arrives with lady’s ‘complexities’ By CHERIE DONNELLAN GEELONG’S Claudia Clark will draw on her professional stage experience in Australia and overseas for a local production of The Lady in the Van. Geelong Repertory Theatre said its production would be a “role of a lifetime” for Clark, who last appeared on the city’s stages as Alzheimer’s victim Daisy in Making Waves. Clark will play lead character Miss Shepherd who moves her mobile home into a quiet residential street until the council orders her out. A resident, writer Alan Bennett, invites Miss Shepherd to move her van into his garden where she recounts her life story to him over the course of 15 years. Geelong Repertory Theatre described her as “an unusual character, to say the least”. “She used to drive ambulances in the war, might have been a nun, sells pencils and pamphlets and has an unexplained aversion to piano music.” Clark described the role as “a challenge of a different kind”, featuring a “complex older personality with some very strange quirks’’. Tony Wright and Mike Ellis will both play Bennett, the latter narrating as he writes and the former appearing with Clark. Directed by Geoff Gaskill, The Lady in the Van will play 8pm on November 23, 24, 30 and December 1, 6, 7, 8, with matinees 2pm on November 25 and December 2, at Woodbin Theatre.

By CHERIE DONNELLAN LYING bedridden for a year unable to stand straight was blessing in disguise for Ryan Adamson. Now the 28-year-old frontman of Australian punk band Regular John, Adamson suffered a serious infection in his back after the insertion of metal rods inserted to correct his spinal hunch. While recuperating he bought vintage synthesisers to experiment with “weird sounds” that later formed a basis for his band’s latest album, Strange Flowers. “It was a pretty heavy time for me,” Adamson told the Independent. “I couldn’t really socialise or anything, so I saved my money and bought these old ‘70s keyboards. “I’ve always been into making weird sounds and when I started I just ran with it.” Adamson, bassist Caleb Goman , drummer Ryan McDonald and guitarist Miles Devine will play Lorne’s 20th annual Falls Music Festival this summer. Adamson promised a solid performance for Regular John’s first Falls appearance. “To play any gig is awesome,” he said. “If you play to one person I think you still owe to that person to play well. Having a whole festival of people is even better.” Adamson said the band would play songs from its new “Aussie psych-rock” album. The genre suited the band members’ adoration of science fiction, he said. “We’re all pretty cosmic cats.”

BACK UP: Regular John’s Ryan Adamson has a head for music. Adamson said co-songwriter Goman penned track Time Machine as a dedication to sci-fi novelist Philip K Dick. “We’re really into his stuff and Caleb wanted to incorporate something to do with him in the album, so we went with it.” Adamson especially enjoyed sharing songwriting duties with Gorman, he said. “Caleb’s amazing with words,” he enthused. “I’ve got these letters from when we were pen pals when we lived away from each other and even when I read them now I’m so stunned to remember that they’re written by a 14-year-old kid.”

CHALLENGING: Claudia Clark plays the lead role in The Lady in the Van.

ADVERTORIAL

Prenatal Yoga Specialised Yoga and breathing practices for the mum to be at Pilates & Yoga Styles studio on Pakington Street. Studio owner Linda Newman says “I am so pleased to add this new class on our timetable this month.” As a mother of four with more than 20 years teaching experience and certified prenatal yoga teacher, Linda instructs this class with a careful and warm approach, sharing her in-depth knowledge of yoga and pregnancy. ‘This practice is suitable for all trimesters and is a practice to accommodate a healthy and happy pregnancy. I will instruct you in how to perform the yoga asana safely, enabling you to create space for the life within. Prenatal yoga will strengthen your legs, open and support the pelvis, align the spine, open the chest and shoulders and help avoid conditions such as backache, sciatica, high blood pressure and insomnia to name a few. Yoga breathing will increase levels of oxygen in the bloodstream and calm the mind, and

WITH THE LAUNCH OF THE UPDATED MODEL IN AUGUST 2005, THESE WERE IMPROVED BY THE ADDITION OF A SIX-SPEED MANUAL OR FIVE-SPEED AUTOMATIC. These transmission choices continued into the new model of 2008. A special model is the highperformance Mazda6 MPS. Launched in October 2005 it had a turbocharged version of the 2.3-litre engine to give it plenty of oomph off the line. It was discontinued with the launch the second-generation Mazda6 series, a victim of its smaller, nimbler brother, the

Mazda3 MPS. Check for that the engine starts promptly and settles into a steady idle within a few seconds of kicking over. Listen for a knocking noise from the universal joints inside the front wheels. Turn the steering wheel to full lock at very slow speeds to the right and the left. An automatic transmission that’s slow to go into gear, or that hunts up and down through the ratios could be due for a service, or even an overhaul. A manual gearbox that’s reluctant to go into gear is also likely to need attention. Fast changes from third to second are often the first to play up.

IndySport Indy Sport Cats’ big test against Prahran GEELONG Cricket Club faces an uphill battle on Saturday when it attempts to chase down Prahran’s imposing total of 6/368 declared. The Cats won the toss and elected to bowl first in a decision that would have left many scratching their heads after an opening stand of 131 by the Prahran openers. Adam Di Giacomo, Cam Alford and Meyrick Buchanan all toiled hard for two wickets each on a tough day for bowlers. Geelong will begin day two on 1/16 after losing nightwatchman Michael Condy in the last over of the day’s play.

A big ton will be required from one of the Cats’ top order for them to have any chance, with Aaron Finch looking most likely to be capable of this. In the crucial Geelong Cricket Association match between Grovedale and Bell Post Hill, Simon Pearce has single-

handedly kept Grovedale’s season alive with an incredible century. Pearce, batting at number six, scored a dominant 143 not-out in his side’s total of 217, with Gary Kelson the next best on just 12 runs. Serious questions need to be asked of the rest of the Tigers’ line-up but that can wait until after this game because the bowlers still have a job to do to secure their side’s first win of the season. For Bell Post Hill, Ben Popovski, 3/60, and Ben Reichstein, 3/42, were the picks of the bowlers. The Panthers resume tomorrow at

1/36 and if they can get off to a good start will be a real chance of victory here. The division two match of the round between Torquay and Murgheboluc is evenly placed after the Tigers battled hard to compile 9/199 during a tough first day’s play. Neither side could lay claim to firstday honours. For Torquay, Andrew Murden, 32, John Rees, 34, and Tom Golding, 32 notout, all got starts but couldn’t go on to big scores. Jason Grozdanovski took 3/46 for the Frogs from 28 tight overs.

In division three, Shelford should cruise to an easy victory tomorrow over North Shore. Shelford compiled a massive 4/325 last week on the back of 144 to Luke Turner, with help from Daniel Maclean, who scored 88. For the Seagulls, of the 10 bowlers used, Jarrad Cole, 2/66, and Brendan Maynard, 2/55, were the only ones to take a wicket. If Shelford can do some early damage tomorrow an outright result might be within its grasp.

Plastics fantastic on snapper as both harbours return great catches On the

bite Brian Long

GREAT numbers of snapper were caught from Corio Bay’s inner and outer harbours over the past week. Corey Gallagher and mate Andrew Dellaca harassed the fish off Clifton Springs, catching quality fish in each of three outings using soft plastics exclusively. I also fished soft plastics off the Springs last weekend, taking a bag limit of fish to 60cm. Gulp four-inch minnows produced the best results. Bait performed well for Owen Lundy, although he spent many hours on the outer-harbour with little success until he moved in close to St Helens. Owen caught two fish in quick succession in a great result for first snapper of the season. Greg Welsh also fished the innerharbour for excellent results after his sounder lit up with baitfish on the channel line directly out from North Shore rocks. Greg quickly deployed two rods baited with pilchard to catch three fish to 8.3kg in the following hour. Many anglers worked Wilson Spit for inconsistent results, mainly due to the fish holding up in the deep water of the channel. Captures were better nearby at the old chair site where pilchard and fresh squid baits performed well. Kevin Hunter and Jim Robinson did well trolling Sebile deep-diving lures for snapper. They had a double hook-up on Saturday morning and landed both, the biggest a little over 5kg. Noel Henry was again successful on 20m line directly out from St Leonards, catching and releasing over a dozen fish in a little under three hours on squid baits.Nathan Greg trolled deep-diving lures between Bird Rock and the quarries where he caught pike to more than 1m and over 3kg. Nathan also landed four

snapper around 45cms length, using a 65mm Sebile Rattler long lip. The bays held some huge shoals of salmon, although they were quite small. Patient anglers found some fish pushing 1.5kg around structure such as pylons, piers and reefs. Perry Harman spun the rocks at North Shore on Monday’s evening low tide for two 80cm pike. Both took 20g laser lures,

which are perfect for this location. Shaun Pritchard also found pike on lures while working Geelong’s waterfront on Tuesday morning between Cunningham Pier and Yarra St. Whiting were caught at St Leonards and Queenscliff, with the best reports coming on the morning tides. Pippies and fresh squid were the standout baits.

Edwards Point produced whiting, leatherjacket, garfish and salmon on the run-up and run-off from high tide. Squid captures were inconsistent. Anyone seeking squid should presently work very shallow inshore grass beds with small jigs. Flathead were taken in 10m to 15m of water between Portarlington and St

Leonards. Anglers drifting with snapper or surf snatchers enjoyed the best results. The Breamlea end of Black Rock produced snapper around 1kg in reasonable numbers late in the afternoon and into the evening. Paul Clarke used plenty of berley to extract carp from the Barwon River at Fyans Park. Paul used unweighted corn and bread baits to grass six fish, the best estimated at more than 6kg. Ray Caruana fished Lake Tooliorook where he caught two brown and one rainbow trout while trolling the Tassie Devil lures. Damian Holt had similar results also whole trolling Tassie Devils at the lake. Geelong fly angler Keith Dowel spent the weekend at Lake Fyans where the fishing was tough. His persistence was eventually rewarded with a well-conditioned brown trout, taken on a small nymph-pattern fly. Ballarat’s Lake Wendouree remained productive, with trout and redfin taken by all methods of angling. Fly should start to excel as the conditions warm and the insects start to hatch. Harrison O’Keefe returned from a few days at Lake Eildon where plenty of small trout were taken while trolling. However, yellowbelly really made the trip worthwhile, with Harrison using Jackall TN60 lures hard up against to catch nine fish to 4.2kg. This weekend’s evening high tides should be ideal for snapper on the inner and outer harbours. Try the spoil grounds in Stingaree Bay or off the quarries. Anyone wanting to fish along the channel line should ensure they cast into the channel without anchoring with it, which is dangerous and illegal. Freshwater anglers should find Lake Tooliorook best, with Lake Elingamite a worthwhile alternative for anglers with small boats.
