Out of Africa with charity By CHERIE DONNELLAN

BEYOND DESTITUTION: Geoff Hucker with Ethiopian beneficiaries of his charity and, in the inset, with partner Kate Fewings.

AN historic trip to Ethiopia a decade ago made Torquay’s Geoff Hucker witness to the “devastation” of orphans living on the streets. Mr Hucker noted their desperation, especially among older children, for a family environment and the support it brings. The experience compelled him to launch Beyond The Orphanage (BTO) in 2003 with the support of partner Kate Fewings. The charity had since helped more than 1000 African children become “productive, educated adults”, Mr Hucker said. One of the program’s first wards, Mihret, exemplified the program’s success, he said. Mihret “thrived” after entering the program at an early age and now volunteered as a mentor to other BTO wards. “He’s quite an amazing young man,” Mr Hucker said. “He finished school in the face of great adversity and went on to study office administration, from which he graduated first in his school.” Mr Hucker urged Surf Coast residents to support the program’s growth through sponsorships or fundraising. “We may be a long way from Ethiopia but even a small donation goes a long way.” Mr Hucker said many Australians had volunteered “professional skills” without having to travel. “People who general businesses utilise, such as writers, graphic designers or even web developers, can help us continue to spread the word.” Mr Hucker said BTO accepted donations or volunteer enquiries at www.beyondtheorphanage.org.

Creek lock-up approved STATE Government approved locking up Spring Creek from development hours before councillors voted this week on plans for a college on the land. Planning Minister Matthew Guy announced on Wednesday he would approve a proposed C66 amendment setting Torquay’s western boundary at Duffields Rd.

The boundary would effectively put the Spring Creek area between Torquay and Bellbrae off limits for urban development. Mr Guy’s approval gave council a green light to start planning work on C66. Councillors voted to begin the process, which their meeting heard could take a year. Councillors then voted to defer Christian College’s controver-

sial bid to build a school within the creek land. Deputy Mayor Rod Nockles put an alternative motion for the college site to be rezoned from farm land to a Special Use classification potentially allowing development of the school. Cr Brian McKiterick helped defeat the motion, calling it “putting the cart before the horse”. The issue was less about the

merit of the school proposal than “the future of the Spring Creek valley”, he said. Cr David Bell, a former Speak Up For Spring Creek campaign leader, remained silent during the C66 and Christian College discussions. Cr Bell said beforehand that he would “enter the process with an open mind”. Community opposition forced the previous council to tear up two

lors and council officers” about its plan for Spring Creek. Principal Darryl Riddle said the school would meet local demand, with Torquay parents bussing “hundreds” of students to the school’s Geelong campuses daily. The Independent revealed earlier in the year that residential developers were also still trying to build support for revisiting their Spring Creek proposals.

plans for developing Spring Creek. Mr Guy helped kill off the second bid in July 2011 with an announcement, also hours before a crucial council vote on Spring Creek, that he would oppose rezoning the land. Council then sought his approval for C66 to lock up Spring Creek. But the Independent revealed in October this year that Christian College was talking to “council-

FEDERAL Government has yet to commit to locating a National Disability Insurance Scheme agency in Geelong despite introducing legislation on the program in parliament this week. The bill established NDIS Launch Transition Agency as an independent body to deliver the scheme. But Victorian Community Services Minister Mary Wooldridge said the Government was silent on establishing the agency in Geelong despite a $25 million state commitment. Ms Wooldridge said the NDIS legislation “needs significant work” before passing through parliament. “The legislation does not give

WAITING: Mary Wooldridge. the Victorian Government an opportunity to agree who should be the chair of the transition agency and therefore play a central role in managing the scheme. “Victorian taxpayers are contributing around $300 million, representing 60 per cent of the funding for care and support in the Barwon launch site.”

The NDIS will provide about 5000 disabled people in the Barwon region with access to comprehensive individual support packages from the middle of next year. Ms Wooldridge said the legilsation omitted key details about scheme eligibility for the Barwon launch site. Federal Disability Reform Minister Jenny Macklin said she expected parliament to vote on the NDIS legislation around February or March. “Right now our focus is on getting the National Disability Insurance Scheme up and running in the Barwon region. That’s what people with disability, their families and carers rightly expect of us.”

A LEGAL smoking cafe has opening in central Geelong, to the dismay of anti-smoking campaigners and the city’s state MP. Patrons of Ryrie St’s Inazana cafe smoke shishas or hookahs, waterpipe tobacco smoking devices from India, indoors legally. Quit Victoria’s Fiona Sharkie said the state was the only one in Australia allowing hookah-smoking in indoor areas of restaurants and cafes. “Under current Victorian law shisha and hookah cafes are exempt from smoke-free legislation despite the substantial health risks

cern is that it’s targeted as young people. “At a time when we’re tightening smoking laws it’s a concern that businesses likes this are still promoting smoking messages.” Inazana staff member Nikola Vrban said the venue’s smoke contained no nicotine and the water in the pipes soaked up any chemicals. “I’ve been smoking it for a year and a half and I’m not addicted. I just do it to be social and to enjoy the flavour,” Mr Vrban said. The cafe had been “packed” since opening this month for evening trade, he said.

Ratepayer body slams deputy’s ‘rotating’ role By JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG council’s rotating deputy mayor system is unworkable, according to a council watchdog. Geelong Ratepayers and Residents Association president Andrew Senia said changing the deputy every six months was a “recipe for instability and uncertainty”. He called for council to revoke its decistion and instead appoint a permanent deputy mayor. Council chose Stretch Kontelj as the first deputy mayor under the new six-month-term system. Mr Senia said the system was “fundamentally detrimental to Geelong”. “Unlike Melbourne, which has a

directly elected deputy mayor for a full term, Geelong has no such thing. “Councillors electing themselves to the position of deputy mayor is not a direct vote by the people and cannot be commended. “It was never the intention, even in the present flawed legislation, to have a series of revolving deputy mayors. “The legislation enabling the mayor to be directly elected is unique to Geelong and can result in some odd results, such as in this case. “In practice, the revolving deputy mayor model is worse than the system we had before.” Mr Senia questioned how the short terms would ensure continuity from one deputy mayor to the next.

“Just as you get to know one deputy mayor their role is about to finish and you will have to get to know a new deputy mayor who may have different attitudes, policies and politics. “You will then deal with a third deputy mayor within a short time and then a fourth until eight deputy mayors are exhausted over four years. “What will the deputy mayor do from time to time? Are there going to be a whole series of people standing in for the mayor when he is not available?” Local Government Minister Jeanette Powell said the legislation enacting Geelong’s directly elected mayor did not specify terms for selecting the deputy.

Mrs Powell said the Government consultation revealed overwhelming support for the direct election of the mayor but the situation regarding the deputy mayor was “less clear”. “As this is the first time the Geelong model has been used, the government has committed to a review after two years of operation.” A council spokesperson said councillors would make any decision on the position of deputy mayor after Cr Kontelj’s tenure. The Independent was unable to gain comment from Mayor Keith Fagg and Cr Kontelj before going to press.

In brief Victim trapped RESCUE crews had to remove the side of a car to rescue a crash victim at Marshall on Monday, according to an SES spokesperson. The spokesperson said the crews used Jaws of Life hydraulic cutters to extract the victim, who was trapped for 20 minutes in the wreckage of the twocar smash at the intersection of Marshalltown and Drews Rds.

$11m boost AN $11 million fund will “drive jobs growth and deliver community infrastructure in Geelong”, state Regional Cities Minister Denis Napthine has announced. Mr Napthine said the money for the new Geelong Development Fund would build on $4 million already committed for supporting redundant Alcoa workers.

Site sale BUSINESSES and housing could eventually take over a Highton site zoned public park and recreation zone after a council vote this week. Councillors agreed to seek a planning scheme amendment to have the former Leisurelink site rezoned as Mixed Use Land so council could sell the “surplus” site.

GEORGE Perisic still clearly recalls walking into a large classroom of 44 fellow first-year apprentices at Ford’s Norlane plant almost 50 years ago. It was inaugural year of the apprentice training centre in The Boulevarde, now demolished for a new Bunnings store. “First-year apprentices used to go straight into the tool room but Ford decided to establish the training centre,” George said. “We were only 16, so we were still kids really and, boys being boys, we did play up a bit. “We tried to cover up our smoking by cramming into the welding booth but we got caught because the welding smoke is blue instead of white,” he laughed. “We used to have oil can fights and then panicked because we had to

Ford was a different place back then, George reminisced. “There were 800 tradesmen in the tool room and our intake had another 36 toolmakers or fitters and turners, four electricians and four maintenance fitters. “We spent 12 months side-byside in the classroom and rotating to various workbenches learning the basic skills. “I had 42 years there and lot of chaps in our year went on to salaried, supervisory and management positions. “It was a great place to work, even though it’s not doing too well at the moment. But Ford is integral to Geelong and the footy club.” George said anyone from the 1964 apprentice intake could phone him about the reunion on 5278 6475 or email georgeperisic@hotmail. com.

COMPLAINTS to Victoria’s Energy and Water Ombudsman from the Barwon region have increased 26 per cent, according to the organisation’s annual report. The surge outstripped a state-wide increase of 18 per cent over the previous financial year. The ombudsman received 2704 cases from the region in 2011/2012. Geelong produced 2401, Borough of Queenscliffe 15 and Surf Coast 288. Delayed bills accounted for 190 energy complaints, high billing 163, imminent disconnection or restrictions 149, feed-in tariffs 148 and billing errors 113. Ombudsman Cynthia Gebert said the increase was mainly due to a 31 per cent rise in electricity complaints. Affordability was a continuing issue for many energy and water customers in the region, she said. “We are concerned about the rising number of customers finding it more and more challenging to pay their bills and often waiting until they get energy disconnection or water restriction notices before contacting their company.” WHEN YOU’RE SMILING: Care Pharmacy’s Kate Mackrell receives the monthly Shop Local Geelong Customer Service Award from the Independent’s Tory Favro.

North top in burglary By NOEL MURPHY CORIO and Norlane homes are the most likely to be burgled in regional Victoria, according to new figures. The two northern suburbs head the RACV’s list of the top-10 most-burgled areas in regional Victoria. The dubious honour followed statistics showing one in 37 houses in Corio/ Norlane was burgled in 2011/2012. The state regional average was one in 86. The RACV warned that its bad news came amid the Christmas shopping season and approaching holidays, when burglaries increased.

The figures drew an angry response from northern suburbs state MP John Eren, who demanded that Premier Ted Baillieu honour a pre-election promise of 70 extra police in Geelong. Mr Eren said elderly people in Corio and Norlane were “very frightened’’ about the risk of burglary. Drug use was rife in the suburbs as part of a regional ice-abuse epidemic, he said. “The Government has a lot work to do,” Mr Eren said. “We know that in preventing crime certainly a strong presence of police helps in that area.

“The current Government, when in opposition, promised Geelong an extra 70 police. The Premier then made a strong comment about how you had to get your head out of sand and get those 70 extra police. “The Government needs to honour its commitment, particularly in Corio and Norlane.’’ The remaining locations on the RACV’s top-10 list were Mildura, Robinvale, Shepparton, Morwell, Wendouree, Sale, Longford, Sebastopol/Delacombe and Mooroopna. The figures were an improvement for Corio/Norlane, which recorded burglaries of one in 30 houses the previous year.

The figures, based on Victoria Police and Australian Bureau of Statistics data, reported a seven per cent increase in burglaries across regional Victoria. RACV’s Peter Brindley cautioned residents to reduce their risks of burgulary. He suggested professional security monitoring of home alarms along with basics such as ensuring doors and windows were locked when away, even for short trips. Households should also be cautious of unwittingly providing burglars with information on social media, he said.

TONED MUSCLES ARE THE KEY TO WORKING OUT 24 HOURS A DAY! During exercise, our muscles use energy to perform work. But once the workout finishes, so does a lot of the energy. Toned muscles require a constant energy source to keep themself firm, unlike flaccid muscle, that is unable to support its own weight. So even if your weight is not where you want it, keep on building your muscle tone. This is one way you will see your workouts extend to 24 hours a day. Doing a workout in your sleep - got to love that!

Sea rise moves blocked - CEO By NOEL MURPHY STATE Government is blocking efforts to plan for rising sea levels from Surf Coast to the South Australia border, according to a coastal shire. Colac Otway Shire acting chief executive officer Jack Green said Spring Street had rejected calls for modelling of areas most likely to be affected. “Colac Otway Shire has pushed the State Government hard over recent years to publish modelling of coastal areas susceptible to future sea level rise and coastal erosion associated with climate change but to no avail,’’ Mr Green said. “It has also pushed for the introduction of appropriate planning controls to affected areas

which provide guidance to local government planners in decision making along the coast but this has been resisted by the State Government.’’ Mr Green’s comments followed a Melbourne University sea change expert’s call in last week’s Independent for an upgraded planning authority to protect the region’s natural assets, tourism, economy and lifestyle. The university professor said balancing climate change and landscape values with sea change population growth, resident amenity, economic growth and new renewable energies needed more than just local council planning But Mr Green questioned the professor’s suggestion of a “super-council” to achieve the balance.

Mr Green said Colac Otwaye sasid H already invested heavily to protect landscapes and township characters. Structure plans, strict character controls for development and landscape planning overlays along the Great Ocean Road were also in place, he said. His shire had also worked closely with neighbouring councils, coastal committees, parks and river authorities, Department of Sustainability and Environment and regional councils alliance group G21. Member for South Barwon Andrew Katos had not responded to the Independent’s call for comment when the paper went to press.

GEELONG’S first family of roller hockey won a nickname at recent Australian championships in Adelaide. The Aparicios became The A-Team, with six members competing across five divisions. Raul Aparicio said he and his children were the biggest contingent from one family in roller hockey association history. Not only did various family members win medals, two were selected to national representation teams. Ashlie Aparicio was selected in the Australian junior and senior women’s national side to compete at Inline Hockey Junior Olympics and senior

world championships in the US next year. She also won gold medals mixing it with boys in an under-17 state team and with the senior women’s side, Raul said. Jake and Luke Aparicio won silver with the senior men’s team, while Jordi Aparicio claimed a bronze in the under-21 team. Raul came out of retirement to help out a New South Wales side but could only manage the veterans division’s wooden spoon. Jake was selected to join the Australian under-23 national side, while Jordi was invited to join Melbourne King’s Victorian Junior Elite team. The Aparicios helped Victoria regain the overall trophy from Queensland.

SIGHT UNSEEN: Penny Allen examines Dianne Ashworth’s bionic eye.

By NOEL MURPHY

By NOEL MURPHY A WEEK ago David Diecke was tearing his hair out trying to find workers for his South Geelong panel shop. But the pressure has turned down a little after the Independent revealed his labour plight in a story last week. Mr Diecke said he had hired

three new workers who responded to the story. The Smash Masters boss had previously advertised elsewhere without result. “I’ve had a really, really good response since,’’ he said. “We got a really good apprentice painter, assembler and panel beater, all from Geelong.’’ “But I still definitely need more.”

BVA hopes to develop an eye with 1000 electrodes before taking it to the market. Ms Ashworth was diagnosed with RP at 24. Her sight disappeared in a shrinking tunnel fashion over several years. “I went into the whole research thing with the understanding it was research. I was rapt when it worked and especially for them because of all the work they put in. “The next generation implant will have 98 electrodes. It will give people mobility; they’ll be able to see doorways and paths and the like.’’ Ms Ashworth makes no secret of her desire to be part of that program. She’s still taking part in tests each and can’t wait for the next-generation bionic eye. “I haven’t really spoken to them about but I’d love to do it.”

$

MEET Dianne Ashworth, a firstorder, world-first Geelong technological marvel. Ms Ashworth has been blind since her 30s but with the help of a new bionic eye prototype is paving the way for up to 60 per cent of people with blindness to see again. A lecturer and social worker at Deakin University’s Waterfront campus, she is taking part in a Bionic Vision Australia (BVA) program that has implanted a 24-electrode device behind her retina. The device has effectively turned on the lights for the first time in decades. Ms Ashworth lost her sight to an inherited condition called retinitis pigmentosa (RP). Royal Eye and Ear Hospital surgeons implanted her prototype bionic eye in July.

The device bypasses damaged retina cells to send electrical impulses to the brain via the optic nerve. The brain then identifies them as images. Ms Ashworth was the first person in the world to receive the implant. “It was an amazing day I’ll never forget,’’ she told the Independent. “The first flash was like a little black splinter. Then they put in different strength currents and I got flashes and sparkles and lines and white clouds – it was like a fireworks show. “I love being the first one to get the eye. I didn’t know I’d be the first for this kind implant in the world – I just thought it was in Melbourne.’’ A team of more 150 researchers and medicos developed the device over six years.

MAJOR DRYSDALE DRAINAGE PROJECT COMPLETED A MONTH AHEAD OF SCHEDULE The major $2.5 million drainage upgrade in central Drysdale is now fully complete and operating, a month ahead of schedule. The drainage upgrade involved major excavations in Clifton Springs Road, Wyndham Street, Hancock Street, Carolanne Drive and Collins Street, at depths up to 7.6 metres below ground level. The upgrade was undertaken by the City of Greater Geelong as an urgent priority project, to alleviate serious and long-standing flash flooding in the area during heavy rain events. The project involved a number of road closures at various times, and the temporary loss of some parking, all of which has now been fully restored. The City wishes to thank all local traders and residents for their patience and understanding during the process of completing this vital local infrastructure project.

COOL RUNNING: Park Run Geelong runners prepare at the start line of their weekly event.

Park Run steps out in Geelong LIFE in Geelong is a walk in the park for many but a few keen locals want to change that. They want to speed things up a little, so they’ve started Park Run Geelong, joining a worldwide movement. One of the local group’s founders, Adam Hunter, said he experienced the concept during a visit to the Gold Coast, the first Park Run in Australia. He enjoyed it so much he contacted Park Run Australia and offered to start a branch in Geelong. “The idea began in the UK about eight years ago and has grown massively from there,” Adam explained. “There are about 200 runs worldwide now, all of them free 5km events held on Saturday mornings at 8am at a local park. “Once you register you’re registered for life and are instantly part of the worldwide Park Run movement. “That means you can run anywhere in the world – just turn up to your local Park Run park and join in the fun.” Adam said the global ap-

Join the

club John Van Klaveren

proach was based on individual runner barcodes. “When you register you receive your barcode that’s scanned when you participate in a run. “That way you can get your individual run times and position by email. The Geelong course is based at Balyang Sanctuary and started just two months ago. More than 500 runners have since registered and the event averages 100 participants a week, all supervised by volunteers. Adam and fellow event director Greg Sutton head the group of volunteers who rotate each week performing tasks like registration, timing and marshalling. The runners have a combined total run time of 342 hours and have covered 3770km in an av-

erage time of 27 minutes 11 seconds. “The concept is growing mainly because it’s free, professionally organised and community-based,” Adam said. The Park Run website has a map of the course, posts results and includes a Flickr stream of photographs of participants in all their athletic glory. Adam said many runners from various Geelong running clubs enjoyed the weekly Park Run as their club seasons ran down. “We support any other running group or club and if we can help generate more members and encourage runners to move on to the next level we are happy to do so. “It’s open to all comers, from the beginner through to Geelong Olympian Craig Mottram, who actually held the world Park Run record for many years until recently.” Adam said more information was available at parkrun.com.au/ balyangsanctuary or by phoning him on 0418 518 129.

Our ‘transport growing pains’ By CHERIE DONNELLAN A NEW RACV report has criticised Geelong and Surf Coast’s public transport services. The Growing Pains report also warned that additional traffic from Armstrong Creek residential growth would strain the regions’ transport connections. The report found that the frequency of trains between Geelong and Melbourne was “poor, particularly on weekends”. Surf Coast’s “infrequent bus services” held residents “captive to their cars”, the report said. It recommended upgrades to Geelong-to-Torquay bus services, with buses travelling via

Surf Coast Hwy and stopping at Marshall and Waurn Ponds train stations. Outer areas of Geelong also suffered from a “low-frequency, disconnected network of bus services”, the report said. Geelong also needed improved cross-town links and better connections to train stations for cars, pedestrians and cyclists. The report identified projects such as State Government’s Regional Rail Link and Geelong ring road upgrades as likely to improve transport movement in the region. A “high-speed link” between Geelong’s ring road and Surf Coast Hwy would further im-

prove “connectivity”. The report said transport infrastructure planning was needed to reduce the “pressure” of Armstrong Creek on connections between Geelong and the Surf Coast. Public transport systems should utilise the new suburb as a connection hub between Geelong and the coast. RACV chief executive officer Colin Jordan said State Government should “adopt [its] blueprint of road and public transport improvement for outer Melbourne and Geelong and engage with the private sector to fund and deliver an accelerated and ongoing program of works”.

His patience and caring manner resulted in a beautiful set of teeth. Carol, St Albans Park BUCKETS to the lowlife, inconsiderate and irresponsible P-plate driver who hit a small child riding his bike in Clifton Springs. How dare you think you can run and get away with it. May the authorities take your car away, sell it and give the funds to the child’s family. Furious And Disgusted Local, Clifton Springs BOUQUETS from Geelong Legacy and more than 1700 veterans’ widows and widowers to the warm-hearted, generous people of greater Geelong for their support of Barwon Heads Chorale’s November 4 concert, Fort Queenscliff’s army departure on November 17 and last Saturday’s RACV Ocean Road Rally. Graeme Collins, Geelong Legacy BOUQUETS to new Cafe Fyan. I visited recently with a friend for lunch and had the best chicken Caesar focaccia with salad and chips. The staff were friendly, the food good and the surrounds beautiful. I’ll be back soon. Hunger Mum, Corio BUCKETS to a supermarket at which I shop and have noticed that the aisles with clothes and toys has become untidy. Also, the Christmas stock doesn’t look lain out as well as in previous years. Disappointed, Grovedale

Investors blocked IT IS with great concern that I write regarding the continued, unlawful blockade a Little Creatures’ building site in Geelong (Independent, November 23). What we are seeing is nothing but standover tactics and bullying from unions and Geelong Trades Hall, with the apparent intent of scaring off any developer or business with an interest in Geelong. While the majority would agree Geelong needs more development and employment opportunities, the CFMEU, the AMWU and Geelong Trades Hall persistently go about stifling this city’s growth, as demonstrated again in the illegal blockade. Their stranglehold over our city is a disgrace and completely unacceptable. Following the Supreme Court order, the picketers’ blockade should have ceased immediately, allowing workers back onto the job site. However, just as we saw recently in Melbourne with the CFMEU and its Grocon site blockade, these unions have again snubbed a Supreme Court Order and continue to act unlawfully and behave appallingly. Meanwhile, investors are backing away from Geelong, where development is immobilised at the will of these unions. Premier Ted Baillieu has promised to work with the company to find a solution and to halt the illegal activity of the unions. If only Julia Gillard and the federal Labor Government were as interested in our city and state. If they were, they would fix their Fair Work laws that allow unions to run roughshod over Supreme Court orders to the detriment of local businesses and employers. This kind of unlawful behaviour must be stopped. Simon Ramsay MP Member for Western Victoria

DPI bunnies IT IS not landholders jeopardising the rabbit-control efforts of others, it is the absolute failure of Department of Primary Industries (DPI) to co-ordinate between different stakeholders (Independent, November 23).

DPI chooses to stand behind privacy laws and fails to comprehend that a successful project outcome requires a comprehensive understanding of the issues, the resources required and the strengths and weaknesses of all stakeholders. As a project planner, DPI fails dismally. Roadsides and reserves are the responsibility of either local government or VicRoads. Crown land is the responsibility of State Government. It is DPI that is jeopardising the outcome of controlling rabbits. The blame lies fairly and squarely at DPI’s feet. We have, every one of us including those who have been fined, done all in our power to control the rabbits. The same cannot be said for government. Why else would I spend $40,000 to run rabbit-mesh fences on my boundaries with Crown land and roadsides. Ann Bullen Munt Duneed

ing a professional development session on the behaviour of adolescent boys. Conducted by New Zealand researcher and social commentator Celia Lashlie, it was very informative, highly entertaining and well worth attending. Ted Pitfield Eastern Park Scout Group

Sceptic an extremist

NEWSPAPER stories about paedophilia by priests, Christian Brothers and teachers are commendable in their desire to have the victims heard and their perpetrators brought to justice. I believe that people who condoned and authorised the transfer of paedophile teachers from one school to another are just as guilty. They did this knowing the teachers had interfered with children and could continue to do so. Two paedophile teachers were transferred to a school where I taught. They were later convicted and served time for their vile actions. I complained twice about their transfers but was told nothing could be done about it. Some figures in so-called Christian education should pay for their inaction and be brought to justice. Bob Thompson Ocean Grove

I READ with the astonishment Alan Barron’s uninformed drivel in the Independent recently. He followed this up with more nonsense in a phone call to John Faine’s ABC morning radio program. If Mr Barron does not believe climate change is happening he has either been living on another planet for the past 20 years or is imitating an ostrich with its head stuck in the sand. Mr Barron needs to become more informed about what is happening in the world and stop writing nonsense to newspapers every few weeks. Free expression is one thing but what he has to say is beyond a joke. No one is interested in Mr Barron’s extremist views. Grant Wilson Highton

Good scouts MANY thanks to Barwon Health, GMHBA, St Joseph’s College and Geelong Grammar School for organising and host-

Support for priests I AM saddened by the conscious and unrelenting efforts of the media to portray the Catholic Church’s priests as a nest of unrepentant paedophiles. I am not a Roman Catholic but am happy to testify to the dedication and moral rectitude of many priests I have encountered during my now-long journey on planet Earth. Michael J Gamble Belmont

An Awkward start By CHERIE DONNELLAN

Excited: Indie-pop band San Cisco is thrilled after signing to US and UK labels. ber seven on Triple J’s Hottest 100 last year. Biondillo reminisced about bandmate and lead singer Jordi Davieson receiving a call with the news from Triple J hosts Tom and Alex. “We’d been recording Wild Things and we were stuck in this hot studio with a broken air-conditioner. “As it got closer to the top

10 we kind of started to think we weren’t going to get it. “We thought a really small Perth band would be highly unlikely to get top 10, so we started to get a bit disinterested but then Jordi received the call. “He wasn’t ready to receive the news – like, naive – but we were still stoked.” Biondillo said he preferred writing and recording in his

bedroom alongside co-lyricist Davieson because studios made him feel “under the pump”. The album’s outro was his favourite because it was “just a cool piece of music, not actually a song”, he said. “I don’t know why but I just like it – it’s nostalgic because Jordi and I were just stuffing around in my bedroom with it.”

INDIE-POP newcomer San Cisco is “excited big-time” after signing to US and UK labels and breaking Triple J’s Hottest 100 before the band had even released its debut album. Guitarist and synth player Josh Biondillo spoke to the Independent about the “nervewracking” experience of releasing the self-titled debut and tasting Triple J success. “We’re releasing the album independently in Australia, so we’re interested to see what everyone thinks of it,” Biondillo said. He humbly described signing with Fat Possum Records and Britain’s Columbia Records as “definitely one thing a band tries to do”. Biondilla revealed San Cisco spent just a week rehearsing “solidly” to prepare the album’s tracks for live gigs. “Our songs are harder to play live,” he said. “In the studio we had access to a lot more instruments – extra synths and stuff – but we’re aiming to narrow it to use just one keyboard.” Biondilla said San Cisco would be ready in time for its Geelong show this Friday night, playing songs including Awkward, which reached num-

The window innovators AFTER almost 30 years of manufacturing the best double-glazed windows and doors, Rylock has to design new products from the ground up, says Murray Riccardi. “For example, the next generation G3 bi-fold and stacker doors are designed specifically for Australian conditions,” Murray says. “They are rigorously tested from their inception and are the ultimate in state-ofthe-art design. “Multiple, high-quality weather seals ensure no air leakage when the wind howls in off the Southern Ocean. “These seals, combined with the superior strength of the heavy aluminium sections, makes the doors more than suitable for even the most-exposed building sites encountered on our south-west coast.” Rylock’s doors uses stainless steel fixings for longevity, along with heavy duty tandem rollers to ensure smooth operation for years of trouble-free service. “The double-glazed sliding door panels roll effortlessly,” Murray says. Rylock’s fully-redesigned new G3 casement windows also have exceptional features, including winders to operate and hold them open. “The new winders are made in the USA by Truth Hardware, which has been making top-quality window operating hardware since 1955,” Murray says. The windows are also fitted with superior locking latches that ensure the twin co-extruded Santoprene weather seals keep out all draughts. Flyscreens are standard and also re-

Rylock products help this home make a statement on the Surf Coast. designed to form part of the frame so that the window can be operated by the winder without the need to open the screen first. “This makes for a good-looking and excellent ventilating window suited to a huge range of applications,” Murray says. Rylock also recently released a new double-hung window.

“Gone are the troublesome spiral balances still used by other manufacturers because as the new window sashes are counterbalanced and operate smoothly and effortlessly,” Murray says. “The window is not only suited to new period-style homes but also to renovation work on older homes. The wider framing, which is a feature of all Rylock

products, doesn’t have that skinny aluminium look.” Rylock’s products have come a long way since the company introduced its revolutionary 630 Series sliding window in 1983. The chunky design was an immediate hit, earning Rylock’s windows the reputation as the premium products on the market.

All products are available in 22 standard powder-coat colours, with a commercial-grade natural anodised finish available for a little extra. A huge range of other powder-coat colours are also available. All the new range is on show in Rylock’s updated showroom at 61 Morgan St, North Geelong.

The Heights of sewing services HEIGHTS Sewing Centre’s Ken Wilks has worked with sewing machine for nearly 60 years. The company operates the region’s only dedicated sewing machine service centre, servicing customers from the Bellarine Peninsula to the South Australian border. Ken has seen phenomenal changes in machines since he joined and gradually took over the family business. ”When I first started off as an apprentice I was putting hand and treadle machines together. Now the bigger machines are computerised and it’s a totally different world.” Heights Sewing Centre’s technicians travel around the world from Sweden to Japan learning the intricacies of sewing machines. It’s a very specialised field,” Ken says.

Heights Sewing Centre’s Ken Wilks has seen huge changes in sewing machines over the past 60 years. “A sewing machine is probably the most intricate piece of machinery you have in the house.” Heights repair all brands of

COLOUR and tile sales consultant Emma Jones answers a series of questions about her role with Geelong’s FC Walker and Sons. What type of service do you provide? Interior design for tiles and related products. Most frequently asked question? I am most frequently asked one of two questions: how can I best design my new home or renovation to incorporate tiles and what types of tile products are available or new to the market. Answer? When building or renovating, there are some fantastic tile options. The industry has seen some major developments in the finish of commercial and suburban tiles. Designer tiles can now mimic natural stone, timbers and even glass finishes. We also have a lovely range of ceramic tiles, in both classic and modern finishes, and there is a tile to suit every budget. Strangest request? Sometimes we are asked to order in products that have been featured in a magazine, which can be risky. Weirdest moment? Asking when a customer was due only to find out that she was not actually pregnant! Embarrassing! Latest Trends?

Emma Jones in the showroom. Classic designs and earthy are all the rage with accent colours such as turquoise and mustard. Trends are always changing with European design taking and few months to translate into Australian designs. Top tip? Try to think laterally when designing a space. Think of the glow of the room and de-cluttering with tiles or products. This will allow you to dress the space

numerous ways after it has been completed. What do you like most about the business you are in? I love helping our clients, getting to know them and giving them a fresh direction for their new space. I love knowing I can play a small part in their new home and making the final result one they’re happy with.

Geelong manager Lester Treloar encourages those thinking of installing or upgrading their cooling systems to act soon before the busy period. “If the average person leaves it too late they can miss out on the opportunity to be cool for Christmas,” Lester says. Specialized Heating and Cooling is offering very competitive deals on top-of-the-range LG split-system air-conditioners. “The Art Cool Stylish is very swish. We have them at the best prices I’ve ever seen and I’ve been in the industry 13 years,” Lester says. Evaporative cooling is also available at bargain prices from Specialized Heating and Cooling.

WINDOW films are an easy, affordable answer to reduce those energy bills and make your house more sustainable. Energy saving window film is one of the most effective passive solar devices available to home owners. Window tinting improves the energy efficiency of homes by reflecting, absorbing and re-radiating solar energy, helping to keep the heat out in summer, while some films are designed to retain heat in winter. Government and industry modelling has shown that for an average home, solar control window film can result in a 30 per cent drop in air conditioner usage, equating to a 10 to 15 per cent reduction in your home’s annual electrical costs. Creating a consistent and neat external appearance, films allow natural lighting while reducing hot spots and reducing glare, including on television and computer screens. Views are enhanced and the general lighting within the home is softened. Privacy is improved making life more comfortable year round. Window film blocks more than 99 per cent of harmful UV rays, not only saving furnishings and floors from fading, but helping prevent ageing, skin cancer and damage to the eyes, which is important for every member of the family including pets. Window films offer far more value than many other products designed to reduce energy gain through windows. As a retrofit option, they work in easily with existing blinds, shutters and other passive solar devices. Films are environmentally friendly and offer a negative carbon footprint. Torquay Tinting’s Vincenzo “Vinnie” Tabacco is also a registered building practitioner whose positive approach toward helping the environment and improving the energy rating of client’s homes helped him win a CSIRO Passive Solar Award. For more information, call Vinnie at Torquay Tinting on 0419 304 610, or visit torquaytinting. com.au.

SUN to Solar Hot Water business co-owner Adrian Napoli says summer is the peak period for making the switch to reap the most of the benefits. “With the rising power costs we’re noticing a lot of people are looking to change their existing hot water service and customers aren’t aware the rebates are still there,� Adrian says. State Government incentives are available for customers switching from gas hot water to gas-solar hot water, from electric hot water to five-star gas hot water and from electric hot water to gas-solar hot water.

Ray McPhee at Leopold Sportsman’s Club.

Club going solar “We trade up to 20 hours a day and that was drawing a lot of power out of the grid,” he says. “We’ll be saving money and the environment with the solar panels.” Ray believes New Generation Solar offers the best sustainable products and services to Geelong businesses. “They’ll provide a full report on potential savings over the life of the system. “They’ll include associated costs and rebates and implement the resources required to complete a project of this magnitude.” New Generation Solar also provides residential solar packages which includes an off-invoice

discount as part of the Federal Government rebate. Business partner Tom Mikac says a 1.5-kilowatt grid-connect solar system can save families around $600 to $700 a year on power bills. “That varies with each system but on a 1.5kW system customers can expect around a $2300 discount.” Prospective solar panel buyers can ask Leopold Sportsman’s Club staff about their sustainability project by phoning 5250 2250 or visiting 135 Kensington Rd, Leopold. Customers wanting information for New Generation Solar packages can phone 1300 320 227.

REDUCE THE OUTGOINGS OF YOUR BUSINESS. ASK ABOUT OUR ENERGY AUDITS.

LEOPOLD Sportsman’s Club is installing solar panels and new internal light fittings to increase its sustainability. Club manager Ray McPhee says the $130,000 project, before rebates, will complement the club’s recent 500,000-litre waterharvesting project and enhance its environmental value. A 57-kilowatt solar panel system combined with efficient light solutions, installed by Geelong’s New Generation Solar, will save the club a 10-year projected figure of more than $300,000. Ray encourages local businesses to install solar systems to reduce their carbon footprints and save themselves from the carbon tax.

The programs, aimed at supporting families through some of the challenges of caring for a child with a disability, provide children and families with the necessary equipment, therapy and opportunities often inaccessible to them within the community. Programs such as Making a Difference, which provides flexible support packages and discretionary funding as part of ongoing support programs to families of a child with a moderate to severe disability, continue to create new and positive experiences for local families. A family including three children aged under nine with medical issues such as autism, intellectual delay, epilepsy, dyspraxia, auditory processing delay and working-memory deficits recently received brokerage funding as part of their support plan

REBORN: The latest incarnation of Skoda is part of the Volkswagen Group.

The Skoda reappears By ERIC BLAIR ALTHOUGH it’s still not widely known in Australia, the Czech Republic-based carmaker, Skoda, is one of the world’s oldest marques, going back to the final years of the 19th century. Those with long memories will recall Skodas being sold here back in the 1950s and 60s and then again in the 80s, however these bear no relationship to the current range. The current Skoda is part of the Volkswagen Group and it returned to Australia in 2007. To ensure that it wouldn’t be mistaken for a cheap Asian import, the local importer decided to start here with some relatively upmarket models, before gradually make their way down to the lower end of the new-car scene. The smallest and cheapest Skoda, the Fabia, arrived here in October 2011. It uses similar underpinnings to the Volkswagen Polo and even the Audi A1 to give it an extremely strong platform on which to build. The Fabia has a completely different body to the Polo and has cheeky lines with a great deal of fun in their shape. It’s being offered with a range of bright colours, including a bright (very bright!) green, yellow and a strong red. Importantly for those looking for a small family car, the Fabia follows the usual Skoda practice of putting interior room and practicality high on its list of priorities. Power from the 77 kilowatt 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine is taken to the front wheels by way of a five-speed manual gearbox. VW’s dual-clutch DSG automatic transmission will be offered as an option later. Despite its size the engine is spritely and responsive in its performance. Even better it has a sporty exhaust note that’s a pleasure to listen too. Handling of the Skoda Fabia is very European in being neat and tidy with fast responses to both the steering wheel and the throttle pedal.

The Skoda Fabia has the solid feel we have come to admire in products from the Volkswagen Group. For those looking for a bit more flair can dress it up with a $3000 Monte Carlo package. Aimed at the Mini it offers different trim colours and even the option of a roof in a different colour to the rest of the body. A new station wagon body has also been added to the range. It’s up to 1460 litres of luggage space with the seats folded down, and a just as impressive 480 litres with all five seats in use. As in other Skoda’s the new Fabia wagon has the superb Varioflex seating system that lets each of the three rear seats be removed individually. The cleverest of all the Varioflex features is the ability to remove the centre-rear seat and then slide the two outer seats closer together, Also new is the range topping 132 kW Skoda Fabia RS132. It has excellent acceleration complemented by a good exhaust note that will please those who think driving is about a lot more than simply going from A to B. The 132 kW is achieved by tuning the same 1.4 engine as in the 77 kW models. It does need 98 RON petrol and has a torque good torque spread, with its maximum of 250 Nm being available all the way from 2000 rpm to 4500. With a price tag starting at just $27,990 for the RS132 manual hatch it’s certainly worth consideration from those looking for fun in an affordable machine. We loved the feel of the RS132 that’s been created by lowering the body by 10 mm and increasing the stiffness of the shocks, springs and bushes. Skoda Fabia is a solid, sensible car with a good range of options, a distinctive style and affordable pricing. We wouldn’t be at all surprised to see it taking off in the sales race any time now.

STORAGE: The boot has a capacity of 315 litres if all seats are in use and up to 1180 litres when they are folded.

IndyMotor Indy Motor Practical and versatile van By ERIC BLAIR VOLKSWAGEN Caddy is a compact commercial van of the type that flourishes in Europe but isn’t as prominent in the more spacious Australian roads. Though ‘compact’ isn’t really the right term. While it’s small on the outside, and therefore easy to drive and park, the Caddy’s interior is simply staggering in the amount of room on offer. The front end is sort of borrowed from the VW Golf so carries a degree of fashion, though the attempts to tizzy up the looks of the headlights are on the odd side. But behind that car-based front end there’s nothing but a big box, with no pretence whatsoever at being anything but sensible and spacious. Caddy is usually sold as a compact van. When stretched out with a longer wheelbase it’s called the Caddy Maxi. Add five more seats and side windows and it becomes the Caddy Maxi Life, a compact people mover. The latest enhancement to the Caddy range is the option of VW’s all-wheel drive 4Motion system. The choice is offered in both the compact VW Maxi van and VW Life people mover. It will be combined with a six-speed DSG selfshifting manual transmission. VW is aiming the all-wheel drive option at buyers who need a van or people mover because they either carry supplies or people from the blacktop onto roads that are gravel or snow covered. It’s very much a niche market, in particular there were no compact ‘bread’ vans that offered AWD.

PRACTICAL: VW’s light vans and people movers are now offered with improved traction for harsh road conditions. The Caddy Maxi 4MOTION comes in two variants, a long-wheelbase van or a seven-seat people mover, tagged as Caddy Maxi Life. Both have dual sliding side doors. The Caddy has always been impressively car-like in handling and the 4Motion is no different. As we did not

get the opportunity to try out gravel or snow-covered roads the safety benefits of AWD were never on show. Depending on the road conditions the 4Motion system directs the majority of torque to the front or back. On the highway the front wheels take 96 per cent of torque. It is also able to lock a wheel that

has lost traction and send that torque to a wheel that has grip. As such the Caddy 4Motion should find a niche market with buyers who either need a van with some AWB ability or a people mover that can go off-road or on snow-covered mountain roads where the AWD will provide some extra grip and improved safety.

Engine options are 1.2-litre petrol (TSI175), 1.6-litre turbo-diesel (TDI250) and 2.0-litre TDI (TDI320). The TSI175 is only available with five-speed manual transmission, the TDI320 only with sixspeed DSG and the TDI250 with both as an option. VW is the only company in this segment to offer a dual-clutch transmission. They also have hill start assist as standard, something that’s becoming common on automatics - where it doesn’t make a lot of sense. Surely this technology that is more important in manual gearshift vehicles? While the Volkswagen Maxi Life is a people mover it is also capable of being converted to a van capable of carrying 3880 litres of cargo. The dual rear seat comes out as do the second row 60/40 split seats. We did not get the opportunity to do this during the press launch of the vehicle, but VW assure us it is a task that takes just a few minutes. We will try it later when we have one to review for a week. We did get to try the rearmost row of seats that VW has made easily accessible by engineering the second row to tumble forward giving a wide entry/exit, even for adults. The Life also has a good size cargo area behind the third row of seats. Both Van and Life have similar dimensions although the Life sits 50 mm higher at 1886 mm to allow for the extra clutch. There are also changes to the suspension, shock absorbers and the exhaust has rerouted to allow for the fitment of a rear differential.

Shannon works within a state-of-the-art, heated spray booth which ensures optimum quality. “For the work that I do and the paint that I deal with you have to have a very clean environment with the right temperature,” Shannon explains.

IndySport Indy Sport Cats going North to top eight GEELONG Cricket Club had some fantastic results in its Twenty20 doubleheader in Horsham last weekend. The Cats took on Essendon in the morning game and got off to a bright start, making 5/187. Hayden Butterworth top scored with 65, while Tom Elliott made 50, both batsmen hitting three sixes each. With the ball, Jeremy Hart, playing his first game for the Cats this season after narrowly missing selection in the South Australian state side in Melbourne, showed his class by taking 4/29. Jacob Thorne took 2/18 from four overs as the Cats scored a 36-run win. In the afternoon game against Foot-

Local

cricket Jim Timberlake

scray Edgewater the Cats had to bowl first this time and did a good job to restrict the opposition to 130 from their 20 overs. Five of the Geelong bowlers each took a wicket. Hayden Butterworth again led the way with 61 to see his side score a fine victory with 10 balls to spare. This Saturday Geelong hosts 13th

placed North Melbourne in a one-day game, with a win potentially putting the Cats in the top eight. In Geelong Cricket Association, North Geelong holds the upper-hand in its division one match of the round against St Joseph’s. Winning the toss and batting, the Magpies got off to a solid start through openers Marco Sticca, 35, and Anthony Armistead, 24, while Col Millard, 46, and Andrew Fergusson, 65, kept the momentum going. When Pat Lowery, 3/41, reduced the home side to 6/234 the game was still in the balance. But an outstanding unbeaten century

by skipper Sam Hall, 104, and a hardhitting 62 not-out to Jack Hall ensured the top order’s work didn’t go to waste. North finished the days play on a huge 6/357. It’s hard to see St Joseph’s getting anywhere near that total tomorrow. In division two, St Peters batted first in its top-of-the-table clash with Manifold Heights and scored a very competitive 241, dismissed in the 81st over. Opener Jason Shields top-scored with a well-made 76, while Matthew Baker, 45, and David Boyd, 37, showed some good form. For the Sharks, Craig Booley took 3/43, while Justin Tarr and Russell Blaik

both took two wickets. This will be a close contest tomorrow and could go either way. In division three, Bell Park might have made enough runs to end Bannockburn’s finals hopes for this season. The Dragons batted first after losing the toss and looked good early when openers Rob Booley, 71, and Lewis Kenyon, 24, got them off to a good start. Blair McConachy kept the Tigers in it, taking 3/39, but Ash Carter, 89, ensured Bell Park would finish strongly and post 8/278. If Bannockburn can’t dig deep and get these runs it will drop out of finals contention.

Bay harbouring many anglers chasing big snapper, some over 9.5kg

bite Brian Long

PLENTY of quality snapper were caught in Corio Bay’s inner and outer harbours again over the past week. More anglers than usual have been on the water but the sheer number of big snapper boated was outstanding. Fish over 8kg were common, with some topping 9.5kg. Ted Collins had an exceptional session in the Point Wilson area last weekend. He only caught two snapper but both were over 9kg, with Ted taking his fish just on dark with pilchard baits. Kristen Makowski also took a 9kg fish on pilchard but in the vicinity of Wilson Spit, which has excelled for snapper in the past couple of months. Even Bendigo angler Greg Hammond landed a quality fish in his first trip off Portarlington where he used a Snapper Snatcher. Snapper were also taken while trolling, with Adam Wright’s catching a 5.2kg fish in 7m off Clifton Springs. Lure used was a Rapala Taildancer in the Qantas colour. In the inner-harbour, Perry Hunt fished the inshore edge of Stingaree Bay’s spoil grounds with pilchard and squid, keeping two fish over 4kg apiece and releasing four between 2kg and 3kg. Greg Collins fishing land-based at Point Lillas where the snapper came on the bite well after dark. A stiff southerly breeze made ideal feeding conditions ideal for the fish, with Greg taking six to 2.1kg on squid. Many lure casters fished pike locations in and around the bay on the evening low tides, with fish close to 1m taken at North Shore rocks, the grammar school lagoon and Point Lillias. Anglers seeking squid then hit the in-

Beach beauty: Bob Searle with salmon of almost 2kg from Apollo Bay. shore grass beds off Hermsley where water under 3m was productive with small dark-coloured jigs. Early morning was the best time. Squid were also taken in close to Duck Island where larger, heavier jigs are required due to stronger currents. Whiting bags were consistent, with St Leonards to Queenscliff the best area. Fresh squid and South Australian pippies were the favoured baits. Norm Sterling tried the new artificial whiting worms last weekend with out-

standing results, landing his bag limit of 20 fish in under two hours off Edwards Point. Norm said leatherjack also showed liking to the worms and accounted for many bite-offs of hooks. The Rip area had good numbers of salmon. Size has varied but plenty of fun can be had either by trolling or casting into the surface action. Trevally remained a viable option within and just outside the cut at Queenscliff. Dan Kebble showed his expertise

on the trevally with soft plastics, using worm-pattern lures to catch a beauty of 1.5kg. Travis Stevens also found the trevally willing to hit soft plastics in the cut, taking nine fish on Gulp fry. Surf anglers should hit the beaches, with plenty of fish available. Black Rock has produced snapper over 3kg, with most closer to 1kg. Plenty of salmon were taken from the deep water rock platforms between Eastern View and Apollo Bay. Cinema Point, She Oaks and Wye River all produced

1056935-KG48-12

On the

fish to 1.5kg, with lure the best method and high tides producing most of the action. The beaches are also worth attention, especially down at Apollo Bay. Local Bob Searle reported that both Wild Dog and Marengo beaches have been producing salmon close to 2kg, with lure again accounting for all the better action. Snapper were also caught from the rocks just near the St Georges River past Lorne. Squid was the bait, with some quality whiting taken at the same time. Freshwater anglers found redfin in the Barwon River. Lures caught the majority, with bibbed lures, especially the suspending models, producing the best results. Bait anglers need live minnow for the best action. Carp over 6kg were landed from both Fyans and Queen’s parks on corn and bread baits. Unweighted baits increase captures, with the carp fickle in the way they are taking bait. Ballarat’s Lake Wendouree was consistent for trout and redfin. Pete Mallard reported that bait anglers took reasonable numbers of trout to 1kg on mudeye and Powerbait, while trolling was the standout method on the redfin. Shallow-diving lures are required in this lake to keep out of the weed. The best trout capture this week was a magnificent brown of 3.65kg, taken by Paul Powell at Newlyn Reservoir. Paul caught his fish on an Atomic deep shad in the Muddy Prawn colour. This weekend it will be hard to go past chasing the snapper late in the evening from Clifton Springs all the way to Alcoa. The tides will be fantastic and the fish should be willing to bite. Freshwater enthusiasts should work lures anywhere from Breakwater to Queen’s Park. Use slow-action lures, especially any that suspend, to do well. Send reports and photos to info@ raylongtackle.com.au or visit Brian at Ray Long’s Fishing World 105 Shannon Ave, Manifold Heights.
