Protection call amid evidence of local koala ‘decline’ BY MICHELLE HERBISON A BARWON Heads animal sanctuary boss has slammed a second deferral of plans to add koalas to a list of nationally threatened species. Jirrahlinga’s Tehree Gordon urged Environment Minister Tony Burke to “stop procrastinating and make decisions”. Koalas were “seriously at risk” from urban sprawl, traffic, wild dogs and lack of vegetation, she said. “For some people it’s their dream trip to come out to Australia and see a koala. We’ve got something that’s an icon throughout the world and we don’t even recognise it.” Ms Gordon said she had noticed a significant decline in the Geelong region’s koala population recently. “Three to four years ago koalas were regularly seen in Lorne. Now the guy that does koala rescues down there might go weeks without a call.” Ms Gordon said Anakie was also home to many koalas before a 2006 bushfire. “I’ve only seen a couple of koalas on the Anakie Rd since those fires.” Mr Burke this week requested more information about “the precise boundaries of where koala populations are dwindling”. He suggested koalas could be classified as threatened in some areas but not others. “The advice I’ve received…suggests I could generalise these areas to state boundaries but I can’t provide a blanket threatened species listing across Australia when there are many places where koala numbers remain high.”

Anger at asbestos left in Juc reserve Mr Pope said friends members noticed building rubble in the infill soil after RACV installed a stormwater pipe through the area. “We have real concern about the health and welfare of the community, particularly people living in the area or frequenting the reserve.” EPA confirmed asbestos was discovered in the reserve between Duffields Rd and Hoylake Ave on Wednesday. “Surf Coast Shire was contacted and committed to instructing the responsible contractors to

tracted the reserve piping works, refused to comment. The incident follows an asbestos scare at Bells Beach 12 months ago. The Independent discovered chunks of the material in the sand from a damaged and exposed asbestos pipe beside stairs to the beach. Surfers and Geelong’s Trades Hall boss criticised the shire for taking weeks to act on the asbestos. Surf Coast Shire refuses to answer questions from the Independent.

Wednesday whether the infill was unearthed during initial digging, brought in from another site or dumped by a third party. “RACV regards this matter extremely seriously and took immediate and strong action when it became aware of the contamination on the advice of Council Officers on February 21, 2012,” Mr Van Every said. “RACV is working with the Surf Coast Shire to identify the likely source and extent of the contamination.” RACV contractor Kane Constructions, which subcon-

BY ERIN PEARSON SURF COAST Shire failed to act on asbestos in a Jan Juc reserve for more than a month, according to residents. Friends of Jan Juc Creek Reserve spokesman Sid Pope said a member contacted the shire with concerns about contaminated soil on January 9. But Environmental Protection Authority said it was left unaware of the asbestos until February 17. RACV, which has a subcontractor working on the site, said it was notified on February 22.

Developments in eco ‘threat’ BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN DEVELOPMENT threatens remaining fragments of native grasslands in the region, according to peak science body. An Australian Academy of Science report said volcanic plains grasslands around Lara and Little River were one of Victoria’s most endangered ecosystems. Only half of the .2 per cent of remaining grassland was in “good condition”, the report said. “The largest and most intact grassland remnants in Victoria are now vulnerable to urban expansion.” Legislation had “facilitated

incremental loss of grassland, or death by a thousand cuts”. Endangered grasslands species included the striped legless lizard, spiny rice-flower, growling grass frog and matted flax-lily. “To halt the ongoing loss of biodiversity and avoid the risk of extinction, it is critical that remaining areas of Victoria’s temperate grasslands are managed effectively,” the report said. “There is currently little consideration of remnant biodiversity in the design of housing estates. Principles for considering biodiversity in housing developments (should be) established.”

An AGL spokesperson said the electricity retailer was “working THE REGION’S electricity and through the details”. water providers are preparing to AGL announced this week that pass price hikes on to customers it had applied to Essential Services when Australia’s carbon tax Commission for an average annubegins on July 1. al carbon tax hike of $150 for

The report identified limited awareness of grasslands’ benefits. “They are undervalued and there is little imperative to consider grasslands in planning policy.” Greening Australia grassy ground cover project manager Dr Paul Gibson Roy said the prognosis was grim. “We’ve been trying to flag this since 2004 and our main focus now is to try to develop methods and techniques to restore grasslands.” Proposed development in the area includes a 4000-allotment residential plan for Lara’s west and an “intermodal” transport hub at Little River.

BY MICHELLE HERBISON GRIEF is “something very real” that people should talk about, says poet Tonya Beechey. The mother of two’s poetry and photography exhibition opening this Friday night will uncover her emotional journey since her husband died of gastric cancer in 2010. Newtown’s Boom Gallery will feature Ms Beechey’s poetry and the photography of friend Mark Elshout exploring the darker side of life. “I just want other people to see grief’s not something to be scared of,” Ms Beechey said. “The poetry I’ve written over the last 20 months is about my journey and feelings at the time. Some days are really crap and some days are good.” Ms Beechey said she took the first six months without Richard ‘Drummer’ Beechey, a former Independent employee, “one day at a time”. “Life obviously changes and perspective changes quite a bit. We had to get used to life with three instead of four.” Ms Beechey said all exhibition proceeds would go to a gastric cancer study.

A GEELONG woman’s lucky numbers have finally come up in a $3 million Powerball win, according to Tatts. The unidentified woman had been playing the same combination of “special” numbers every week for 10 years before becoming one of two division one winners nationally in last week’s draw.

Cruise visits A CRUISE ship’s visit to Geelong has reinforced a council plan for a new Yarra St pier to accommodate cruisers, according to Mayor John Mitchell. He said factors against 100-year-old Cunningham Pier as a viable cruise ship berth, including its inadequate length and structural deficiencies, meant a “purpose-designed” facility was the best option.

Henderson stands FORMER ABC journalist Sarah Henderson has announced she will run again for Liberal preselection in Corangamite. Ms Henderson lost the seat to Labor incumbent Darren Cheeseman at the last federal election by less than 800 votes, making Corangamite Australia’s most-marginal electorate.

Anglers blitzed A FISHERIES blitz has caught more than a dozen anglers with undersized fish in the Geelong region over the past week.

Precinct cost ‘up’ THE COST of Torquay’s “community and civic precinct” has increased $6 million on initial estimates, according to Surf Coast Shire statements. The shire said this week the cost of precinct’s “first stage” was $46 million. In December the shire said it had delivered stage one “on-time and onbudget at a cost of $44 million”. Reports in 2009 said the project would cost $40 million, 15 per cent less than the 2012 figure. Shire chief executive officer Mark Davies said council was “now committed to the completion of stage two…with stage three to commence once further government funding was secured”. In last week’s Independent councillor Ron Humphrey said council would consider a plan to intensify a residental and commercial development in exchange for land. Cr Humphrey said council was now too close to its prudential limit to borrow money for the land as part of the civic centre project.

BY ERIN PEARSON A MAN armed with a knife has robbed a boy of a slice of pizza and a soft drink in a bizarre incident on a Geelong West street, according to Geelong Police. Detective Senior Sergeant Simon Keogh said the 14-year-old victim was left uninjured but shaken after the robbery last week. Det Sen Sgt Keogh said the assailant approached the boy about 8.45pm on February 15 outside La Campagnola restaurant. The victim had spoken to the alleged offender minutes earlier at an adjacent Safeway supermarket to “ask for change”. Det Sen Sgt Keogh said the robber was unknown to the boy. The offender told the victim he had a knife before demanding the takeaway meal. “The victim handed over the slice of pizza and drink before the offender fled off toward Safeway,” Det Sen Sgt Keogh said. “(The victim) was left shaken by the incident and concerned he might see him again in the area.” Det Sen Sgt Keogh said police were seeking help to catch the robber. “We are appealing for members of the public that may know this man to contact police.” Det Sen Sgt Keogh said the offender had not asked for anything else from the victim such as a money, a wallet or electronics. The boy described the offender as about 18 years old, 180cm, of slim build, with pale, freckled skin and wearing a black and orange New York Knicks cap, a white T-shirt and sunglasses. Det Sen Sgt Keogh asked anyone with information on the offender to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

MASTERCHEF judge Matt Preston will star at this year’s Lara Food and Wine Festival. The flamboyant, cravatwearing celebrity will cast his verdict on competitors in the festival’s Ultimate Chef Challenge, pitting the cream of local chefs against each other in a 15-minute cooking showdown. Mr Preston was looking forward to the challenge. “We are guaranteed the competition will be fierce,” he said. “I expect the competing chefs to create inspired dishes made with fresh local produce.” Organisers said Mr Preston would also be on stage with renowned restauranteur and cooking author Rosa Mitchell as she demonstrated her Italian food skills. Organising committee member Andrew Burgess said more than 80 exhibitors would attend the fourth annual festival to showcase some of the region’s finest food and wine. Live music and children’s activities would also feature, Mr Burgess said. “Many people bring along a picnic blanket, gather delicious goodies from the exhibitors and enjoy a leisurely lunch on the lawns. It’s a wonderful way to spend a Sunday,” The festival will be at Lara’s Pirra homestead on March 25. Entry will cost a gold coin, with parking free. More information is available at www.larafoodandwinefestival.com.au or by phoning 5282 2725. The Independent is a sponsor of Lara Food and Wine Festival.

Police blitz does number on illegal drivers BY MICHELLE HERBISON POLICE are urging drivers across the region to update registration and licence details to avoid “heavy fines” after an operation caught illegal motorists last week. Senior Sergeant David Magher said police issued 14 tickets for unregistered vehicles or unlicensed drivers in the licence plate blitz at Drysdale. “The real thing that stands out is 14 people got tickets for $611 each, which is a pretty hefty fine,” Snr Sgt Magher said. “In a lot of cases people could’ve avoided it just by renewing their license and registration. There is a heavy penalty for not doing it and of course then you’ve got to turn around and register your vehicle anyway.” Snr Sgt Magher said a woman in her 70s was one of two who would face court on charges of unlicensed driving. After losing her license due to drink driving she never applied to court to get it back, he said. “You have to go and stand up to a magistrate and tell them you understand the consequences of your actions,” Snr Sgt Magher warned. “People have an obligation on the roads and we’re just

nition technology scanned 3128 vehicles. The technology used number-plate details to databases, instantly identifying wanted

drivers or vehicles. Snr Sgt Magher said police conducted similar operations without warning around the region “fairly regularly”.

Ambos ‘in staff push’ BY MICHELLE HERBISON GEELONG “desperately” needs 11 more paramedics, according to their union. Ambulance Employees Australia secretary Steve McGhie said he would next week begin a push for funding to supply the additional staff. The union would ask Victorian Government to include the funding in the next state budget. Mr McGhie said the union also wanted seven more patient-transfer officers for Geelong and five paramedics at Meredith. The Geelong increase would provide two additional crews, with one each for day and night shifts, he said. The increase at Meredith would provide one extra 24-hour crew to “ease the burden” on Geelong paramedics responding to calls from the area. Mr McGhie said the additional patient transfer officers would double the existing complement in Geelong to further ease the strain on paramedics. “We see a lot of circumstances where emergency paramedics are sent to non-emergency cases that keep them occupied, so we’re seeking

employees qualified to transfer patients to and from hospitals in a nonemergency format.” Mr McGhie said paramedic crews were continually stretched to the limit in Geelong. Problems like response delays had become “common practice”. “Part of the problem is paramedics just take it in their stride,” he said. “Shifts are being dropped and not filled due to absenteeism and there are not enough people to fill on overtime. “While there might be some new graduates go into the area, it’s not providing additional crews on the road. It’s just filling the gaps on rosters.” Mr McGhie said he would also push for two additional ambulances in Geelong and extra non-emergency vehicles for patient transfer. Health Minister David Davis’s spokesperson said a 2010 Auditor General’s report identified a decline in ambulance services under the previous Labor government. “Labor mismanaged ambulance services over the previous 11 years, including the merger of three previous ambulance services, and it will take time to turn around Labor’s mismanagement,” the spokesperson said.

REWARDS FOR BEING A LOCAL

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN THE FEDERAL Labor party must “sort out its leadership mess” quickly, according to newly Geelong-based Greens Senator Richard Di Natale. Mr Di Natale said the leadership turmoil was only helping opposition leader Tony Abbott. Mr Di Natale spoke out on the federal tensions after opening the Greens’ first electoral office in the Geelong region this week. “I don’t want to see Abbott in government, so the ALP has to sort it out, otherwise you can be bogged down by the sideshow,” he told the Independent. “We need to focus on issues and outcomes.”

Mr Di Natale said he would work with either Prime Minister Julia Gillard or former PM Kevin Rudd if successfully challenged to resume leadership of Labor. Mr Di Natale said he was a senator for Victoria but the party had decided on a regional presence, with federal Lower House MP Adam Bandt established in Melbourne. “We received a vote in the high teens in the Surf Coast. Darren Cheeseman was elected on Greens preferences,” Mr Di Natale said. “The biggest positive swing was toward the Greens in Corangamite. Some booths outpolled the Liberals and ALP.

“Geelong votes were in double figures and are growing. Having a Greens voice in Canberra will hopefully make a difference for this region. “Geelong is the gateway to the southwest and it is a vibrant place. There’s a lot happening here.” Mr Di Natale lives at Deans Marsh with his wife and two children. A former GP, he worked at Geelong Drug and Alcohol Service and in the Northern Territory and India on public health work. Mr Di Natale is the Greens’ spokesman for health, gambling, multiculturalism, sport and regional affairs.

the type of rubbish most dangerous to particular species.” Dr Hardesty and her team stop every 100 kilometres to survey areas of coastline. “Different beaches have different types of litter depending on location and currents,” she said. “Isolation doesn’t necessarily mean a beach is free of litter. We often find rubbish that is not local or even of Australian origin. “It’s an ambitious project but has real meaning and relevance to everyday life.” Clonard teacher Jenny Edwards said an interesting part of the project involved debris with barcodes, enabling the product to be traced back through the distribution chain. “It’s like a message in bottle, except the

message is encoded” Ms Edwards said. “It gives us information about where the product originated and how it may have travelled to the coast.” Ms Edwards said the project fitted in with the school’s curriculum with topics like oceanography, biology, biodiversity and biochemistry. “We weren’t expecting to find much at Breamlea because it’s a more-remote beach but we were surprised by what we discovered, including dead wildlife.” Ms Edwards will present Clonard’s involvement in the project to teacher group Barwon Environment Network. She said students would monitor Breamlea for the next year to collect more data for uploading to the TeachWild National Marine Debris portal at ala.org.au.

JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG secondary students have formed a pilot group for a national beach debris survey. CSIRO researchers have trained the Clonard College students in survey techniques and uploading their data to a national scientific database. Project leader Dr Denise Hardesty hoped other community and school groups would join the project. The survey aimed to measure marine debris and its impact on aquatic life, Dr Hardesty said. “All the data collected is included on a national debris map overlaid with wildlife distribution patterns for marine species like birds, fish and turtles,” she said. “This allows researchers to pinpoint

Serve of sport AFTER courting national attention as a Davis Cup host, Geelong Lawn Tennis Club is thinking big. Basking in the afterglow of a successful event, the club aims to net more Davis Cup action. Far from drawing the line at memberships, the club wants more grass court fans, according to general manager Ken Barton. “It was really gratifying the way the Geelong community embraced the event,” Ken said. “We want to build on that success through increased participation in tennis around the region and growing our membership.” Ken said the community support for the event impressed Tennis Australia, while the players and Davis Cup team lauded the location. “We thought initially this might be a one-off but it was such a success that we feel we have an opportunity to position the club for future grass court David Cup ties. “The club will have a close look at what would be needed to accommodate future ties and improve the setting so we can be

Join the club JOHN VAN KLAVEREN considered a front runner.” Ken said the club recently signed an agreement with Tennis Australia to promote the sport locally. “As part of that agreement we want to build participation in region by assisting smaller clubs. “The Davis Cup has already proven to be a boost for tennis participation in the region. Local coaches are reporting record levels of enrolments in programs.” Geelong Lawn Tennis Club is a not-for-profit members club under the governance of a committee and with a full-time manager, a member services manager and part-time staff. Ken said volunteers played a significant role, providing the

engine room of assistance for the Davis Cup tie. The 950 members form Australia’s oldest provincial tennis club, founded in 1882. In the 1920s a member, Jack Hawkes, represented Australia in Davis Cup competition. The club has 28 courts, with 13 grass and the remainder a mix of porous and synthetic materials. Ken said the club had added three squash courts and a fitness studio to complement its tennis facilities. “This is the third largest lawn tennis club in Victoria,” he emphasised, “older than Kooyong and Royal South Yarra. “People love the softer surface plus there’s a historical connection to tennis over recent decades. It’s what sets us apart.” The club is hosting its 2012 club championships until next Friday but welcomes casual players most other times. Ken said more information was available by phoning 5243 2819 or visiting geelonglawntc.com.au.

The key rings were gold with a red leprechaun and the name Wendy. The stress and cost were quite considerable. Wendy, Ocean Grove BOUQUETS to City of Greater Geelong for a successful mosquito eradication program this summer. To be angle to enjoy life outdoors mostly without these critters is wonderful. Grateful, Ocean Grove BUCKETS to a council employee. Don’t flaunt the fact you work for council to use leverage when complaining about my neighbour’s dogs. They are loveable Labradors secure behind a fence but you insist on complaining. Kids love the dogs and so do all the neighbours. Pathetic, Belmont

BOUQUETS to The Barking Dog’s Matilda. She did a fantastic job looking after 27 patrons for my mum’s 80th birthday lunch on January 22. Everything went super smooth. The tables were decorated beautifully. Karyn, Melbourne BOUQUETS to a hot rod driver who stopped to help and get me sufficiently mobile to reach a garage when a tyre burst. All the other drivers rushed past hooting their horns because I was stopped on the road. JB, Highton BOUQUETS to ConAir. The owner dropped his price for vacuum cleaner bags after he bought them cheaper because of the high Australian dollar. Few traders would be so caring of their customers’ pockets. Delighted Ducted Vac Owner, Wandana Heights BUCKETS to RR (Buckets and Bouquets, February 17). If you knew an “adjacent outlet” was charging 12 cents less for gas than a supermarket outlet, why bother with a bucket? Just buy at the cheaper price and get over it. Big Deal, South Geelong

Protecting women

WHEN asked a question by the opposition, Prime Minister Gilliard seemingly still ignores the gist of the question posed. She goes off on a tangent, sending forth a tirade of insults and accusations instead of giving a direct and relevant answer to the question. Christina Dengler Norlane

VICTORIA Police showed great leadership last week in confronting Victoria’s silent killer, violence against women. Chief Commissioner Ken Lay appointed deputy Tim Cartwright to take on this serious issue after pledging to make it a policing priority. This is an important milestone for the health of Victorian women. While many other areas of crime are decreasing, violence against women is not. Shockingly, it remains the number-one contributor to death and disability among Victorian women aged 15 to 44. Police have had enough of picking up the pieces and the community has had enough of perpetrators slipping under the radar. The appointment of a dedicated, senior-ranking police officer and the Victorian Government’s new draft action plan to prevent violence will send a clear message to perpetrators that violence, will not be tolerated. We can all support these efforts by working to prevent violence against women before it happens by creating a society in which everyone is treated equally and with respect. It’s up to the whole community to speak up and take action to create a world free from violence against women. Renee Imbesi Preventing Violence Against Women manager VicHealth

LATE last week Frank Costa said on radio that Geelong’s mayor and Committee for Geelong people had been to America to discuss with Alcoa management its possible closure of Alcoa’s Point Henry operation. What gives the self-appointed Committee for Geelong the audacity to represent we ratepayers in this matter? This body seems to be the spokesperson on important issues regarding Geelong. The elected councillors do not seem to have the necessary fortitude to tell this mob to rack off. Who funded the expedition?

whatever Greens! I am a Christian and my motivation for joining the Greens came from my faith in God, which leads me to believe we should not be destroying this world that God created for us and that we should care more for those with less opportunity. I’m sure many Greens disagree with my religious position but that doesn’t matter because we are not a pantheistic party but one founded on principles of environmental stewardship, social action and equality. So, Mr Handley, please be more careful when you make sweeping remarks about people you know nothing about and don’t categorise others as all belonging to the same box. Gavin Brown East Geelong

COULD Alan Barron please share his carbon tax calculations with us (Letters, February 17)? No matter how I try I can’t get the cost to come out at $1000 for the average Australian family.

BRIAN Handley suggested that the carbon tax was introduced to appease the “pantheistic Greens” (Letters, February 17). I didn’t know that there was a pantheistic faction of the Greens! Or are all the Greens supposedly pantheistic? I am a member of the Greens and when I joined I didn’t have to sign a statement declaring that God and nature were one or that we were all God. If that was a requirement I would not be a member. There are Greens of many philosophical and religious persuasions. I’m sure there are many pantheistic Greens but, from what I’ve seen, Greens can be Jewish, Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, atheist, agnostic or whatever - no offence to the

Country boy at home on tour BY ERIN PEARSON HOME is where the heart is for country music veteran Troy Cassar-Daly. The Australian star said family and farm life remained number-one despite his travels around the world and tours with country legends such as Slim Dusty and Johnny Cash. The father revealed he drew on the strength of friends and family following the Queensland floods to write his latest album. Cassar-Daly described Home as a “friendly homage” to country hospitality. “This was a bit of a healing record for me after the floods,” he told the Independent. “I think it got me to appreciate home and family a lot more. That’s why I called the record Home. “Before the floods we all thought the community was somewhere you lived. It’s not that, it’s somewhere people pull together, where they care and come to your aid. “That’s what this record is all about.” Cassar-Daly said he left his comfort zone while recording the new album, putting down the guitar to focus solely on his vocals. Each day was a learning experience as he became a “student” of music all over again. But he singled out “the good things in life” as the main inspiration throughout the writing and recording process. “It’s easy to write negative stuff,” CassarDaly said. “It’s a lot harder to write about things that are glass half full but I think we need it. “Last time I went to America I took the family over for three months. We walked out of a restaurant where they served way too much food and collected up the leftovers and gave it to people on the street.

It’s normal. “I want my kids to see that’s normal.” Cassar-Daly said he had instilled hard work and old-fashioned values in his children to help them understand why he had to go on tour with each new album. He pined to be home waiting for them to come home from school each day but said he refused to let a freshly recorded album “sit it on the shelf”. “Slim (Dusty) imparted something in me when I was very young. He said you’ve got to take the music to the people,” Cassar-Daly reminisced. “You can’t pack them up and get them to you in Melbourne. You’ve got to get out there to Bairnsdale and to Warrnambool and that’s where we’re going. “It’s vitally important.” Cassar-Daly will play Corio’s Gateway Hotel on March 16.

Classic tale of raw sensuality

BUY ONE MEAL AND RECEIVE THE OTHER ONE FREE. 44 Corio Street, Geelong

ady Chatterley’s Lover is a hymn to the flesh, to love. One of the most controversial novels in English literature, it is an erotically charged and psychologically powerful depiction of adult relationships. Lady Chatterley’s Lover skillfully depicts the adulterous affair between the sexually unfulfilled upper-class Connie and gamekeeper Mellors, who works for her impotent, invalid husband, Sir Clifford. This powerful depiction of the sexual liaison between the two characters perfectly captures the struggle between the classes and the sexes. Glenn Elston’s new production, performed under the stars at Barwon Park, takes audiences bodily into the world of DH Lawrence’s characters as they embark on an illicit affair that brings to life their stifled existence. The beautiful surrounds of Barwon Park lend perfectly to the undercurrents of the natural and raw sensuality running through this masterful play. Theatre fans should ensure they see Glenn Elston’s beautiful outdoor adaptation of Lawrence’s timeless classic. Lady Chatterley’s Lover will begin 7pm this Saturday at Barwon Park, 105 Inverleigh Rd, Winchelsea Tickets cost $40 for adults, $35 for concession card holders, $35 a head for groups of 10 more more

Chief look at these specials!

BY ERIC BLAIR he Audi A1 is a stylish little three-door hatchback that’s aimed at the young and trendy, although we wouldn’t be surprised to see some older, but still trendy, baby boomers stepping into them. Audi was a bit of a latecomer into the Australian prestige small car market with the A1 being launched here towards the end of 2010 well behind its German rivals the Mercedes-Benz A-Class and BMW’s 1 Series and MINI. Style is the name of the game in this area of the car market and the Audi A1 has plenty of it. While the large grille at the front may look similar to that of larger cars and SUVs in the Audi range it actually takes the single-grille theme in a new direction. From the side the most obvious feature of the Audi A1 is the domed profile of the roof and the hoops that support it. The latter can be ordered in various different paint hues to really make it stand out. But the hoops can also be chosen in the same colours as the roof. Incidentally, a large panoramic sunroof is also on the extensive options list. A feature of this car class is the large number of choices available and Audi has taken the interesting route of offering the sort of features normally only seen in its topline models. These include automatic locking and unlocking, several stages of audio and infotainment systems including an upmarket Bose one, satellite navigation, leather trim, a multi-function steering wheel. We suggest a trip to your Audi dealer to check out how the extensive lists can tailor the Audi A1 to your very specific needs. New Audi A1 is a four-seater but most Australian buyers are likely to regard it as a two-plus-two. While there is space in the back seat for adults headroom is tight and it will often be necessary to come to a compromise on legroom with those in front of you.

APPROVED CARS APPROV ARS AL ALL L CARS RS

The other A1 variants come with either a lower-powered version of the same engine, a 1.4-litre turbocharged unit that produces 90 kilowatts of power and 200 Newton metres of torque and also a 1.6-litre TDI turbo-diesel. We’ve yet to test the latter engine but have been in the smaller petrol unit. It takes advantage of the latest in turbo and direct-injection technology to produce its 200 Nm of torque all the way from 1500 to 4000 rpm. In other words, almost all drivers will have the engine at its torque peak all the time to get the greatest efficiency from it. This efficiency sees the engine having an official fuel consumption rating of only 5.3 litres per hundred kilometres. On the open road we were again impressed by the quality of the ride and handling from the standard A1. While coarse-chip surfaces do let a fair bit of noise into the cabin the Audi is no worse than many other small European cars. We were impressed with the visibility permitted to the front/side by the clever design of the windscreen pillars. Though these pillars look substantial enough to provide strength in a big crash, their shape means the driver suffers minimum inconvenience on twisting roads. Anyone looking for style and class in a prestigious car should certainly be taking a look at this cute little A1 from Audi.

ALL CA CARS

The latest addition to the A1 range is the TFSI Sport, a feisty little performer that’s powered by a hot version of the 1.4-litre TFSI engine similar to that found in the Volkswagen Polo GTi. Audi has boosted output in the front wheel drive A1 Sport to 136 kW of power and 250 Nm of torque. The secret to the engine’s high-performance is a combination of two forced injection systems: supercharging and turbocharging. From engine idle speed the mechanical, engine-powered supercharger delivers more than 1.0 bar of relative boost pressure. The supercharger is situated upstream of the exhaust-driven turbocharger. The transition between the two systems, supercharger and turbocharger is gradual and seamless, with both blowers working together at times. The A1 Sport delivers performance by the bucketful. The steering is direct and highly responsive to every driver movement. Like all front wheel drive vehicles there is some understeer and if you go into a corner over-cooked it could be embarrassing. We are talking here of track work, not in the urban environment. The DSG transmission works best when pushed and there’s still a slight hesitation when trying to get off from the lights quickly. Where the car comes into its own is on tight bends where it is possible to throw the car around while remaining in full control.

APPROVED CARS

Fashionable: Full of style and proud of that fact, the Audi A1 is aimed at trendy buyers.

Where they live, eat, sleep & breathe Motorcycles

ow-impact collisions typical in shopping centre car parks are annoying to say the least. Add to this the fact that people rarely own up to damaging other peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cars. It has been noticed that drivers are often scared to back up any further due to very limited vision. These are the occasions where reverse sensors are very welcome. Bumper Master fits reversing sensors to help customers overcome fears of backing into objects or even pedestrians. Reversing sensors help prevent damage to ownersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cars as well as the vehicles of neighbours and other motorists. They can also help when backing out of tight garages and past narrow gateposts. Bumper Master can also help owners improve the appearance of bumpers when selling vehicles. Bumpers are the first part of any car to incur damage â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and first impressions are important when trying to sell. All Bumper Master repairs come with a no-questions-asked warranty to give customers peace of mind. Best of all, most bumper repairs are done for less than the cost of insurance excesses. Located behind VicRoads at 3 Dowsett Street, South Geelong, Bumper Master has proven experience in providing an alternative repair service to bumper regions of any car. Owners wanting to improve the resale value of their cars should phone Bumper Master on 5221 0138.

Queenscliff kingfish the talk of the town Worth the drive: Ballarat angler Mal Stevens with a snapper caught on a soft plastic lure in Corio Bay this week.

On the bite BRIAN LONG FANTASTIC conditions allowed many anglers to hit the Queenscliff area for some outstanding captures over the past week. Kingfish were the talk of the town, with specimens up to 15kg landed. Most fish were between 6kg and 12kg, with anglers using downriggers enjoying the best results. Leadlines were also effective, with artificial squid-type lures best and fresh baits also productive. Anglers are advised to keep a rod rigged with a popper, with surface action appearing more regularly. The Rip also hosted huge numbers of salmon working to the surface on the ebbing tide. Trolled or cast soft plastics worked well, with the salmon also present in and around the entrance to Swan Bay. Gary Holmes cast small Yamashita squid jigs in close to Bell Reef for a baglimit catch. Gary then used some of his catch out closer to the face of The Rip where he landed a kingfish of 9.3kg. Norm Jennings found quality whiting in close to Coles Beacon, returning with 16 averaging 38cm. A follow-up session the next day produced a bag limit of similar-size fish. Peter De Beer also bagged out on whiting on the outer edge of West Channel. Swan Bay rewarded Geoffrey Waters with a nice catch of flathead. After laying a liberal berley trail in close to Edwards Point he finished with seven fish better than 55cm each along with whiting, garfish and a tailor of around 2kg. Whiting were in smaller numbers around the inner Governor Reef, with most anglers catching a dozen or so fish averaging 33cm. Snapper anglers again found fish on the 20m line off St Leonards. All the action was just before and after sunrise, with tough baits such as silver whiting, squid and whiting heads best.

Snapper were also taken on soft plastics from the spoil grounds off Pelican Shores Caravan Park. Ken Alford was one of many to land fish better than 2.5kg after putting up with the many smaller specimens in the area. Ballarat anglers Andrew Dellaca and Mal Stevens also worked the outer-harbour with soft plastics, landing eight fish from 2kg to just over 3kg. Garry Stirling fished Arthur the Great Spit with squid for three fish around 3kg each. Corio Bay produced quality snapper, with Harrison Milne landing two class fish on Monday evening. Harrison’s best was 6.7kg. Mark Marder nailed a 7.2kg fish on the weekend. Pilchard generally accounted for the largest fish, with evening and just after dark the prime time. Soft plastics anglers continued enjoying good results on Geelong’s waterfront. Turtleback worms have been a great choice, with the evening high tides bringing the fish on the bite. Flathead and snapper were the main species over the past week but bream and salmon were also taken. Surf action was fantastic. Last weekend I fished the rocks at Cinema Point to catch salmon better than 3kg on lure. This weekend’s afternoon high tides should be

perfect for the surf. One of the best surf reports I have had for some time came from Stuart McMahon. Fishing the rocks at Loutitt Bay near Lorne, Stuart landed 15 whiting better than 35cm on fine strips of squid. Stuart said the fish only came on the bite as the sun began to set. Freshwater reports were slower but redfin and trout were caught at Wurdee Buloc Reservoir. Lures such as tiger minnows and Atomic shads along with vibe styles including Jackals and Yo Zuris are ideal, while bait anglers should use mudeye or minnow under floats. The Barwon River remains discoloured but should soon improve. In the meantime the junction of the Barwon and Leigh rivers at Inverleigh should be productive for redfin or trout on lure. This weekend’s late afternoon tides should be ideal for snapper from the bays. Bait anglers should head to either Wilson Spit or the deep mud off the silos piers with pilchards for bait. Lure casters should try salmon in the surf either side of Lorne on any of the deep-water rock platforms. Send reports and photos to info@raylongtackle.com.au or visit Brian at Ray Long’s Fishing World, 105 Shannon Ave, Manifold Heights.

Cats seek final form GEELONG is far from securing a topeight finish in Victorian Premier Cricket League despite sitting fifth on the ladder. After losing last weekend to St Kilda, the Cats face the unenviable task of taking on the second and third placed teams in the final two games of the season. They start with Prahran this weekend in a Saturday/Sunday fixture. Geelong will have little fear against the top sides despite a slight dent in its confidence last game. In an amazing scorecard, Geelong was dismissed for 238, 168 of which was scored by Aaron Finch. St Kilda claimed first-innings points but the Cats’ top order salvaged some pride in the second innings, with Jacob Thorne and Luke Muller making half centuries. The Cats will use the second innings form this weekend as a catalyst keep its season alive. In Geelong Cricket Association, after spending virtually all season battling to stay in touch with the top six St Joseph’s now appears assured of a finals berth. Joeys’ stars stood up when it mattered most to thrash top side Grovedale. Trent Walerys set up the win on day one with 5/46 to dismiss the Tigers for just 107. In reply, David Morgan and Daniel Fanning joined forces with 98 and 93 respectively to turn the game and season on its head. A game still remains, with St Joseph’s taking on Manifold Heights, but the final six looks set. Selections: ST JOSEPH’S v Manifold Heights, Lara v SOUTH BARWON, Newtown & Chilwell v GROVEDALE, Bell Post Hill v GEELONG WEST, Highton v LEOPOLD, North Geelong v EAST BELMONT. Division two’s last remaining finals place is still and for grabs.

Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE Guild St Mary’s is sixth with Newcomb & District and Torquay nipping at its heels. All three have winnable games, with Guild St Mary’s travelling to Marshall, Newcomb and District taking on Bell Park, and Torquay playing away at St Peters. Add into the equation the fact Newcomb & District could be a chance for an outright victory and the grapevine will be working as teams do their sums. Selections: Bell Park v NEWCOMB & DISTRICT, MARSHALL v Guild St Mary’s, Thomson v ST ALBAN’S BREAKWATER, Alexander Thomson v MURGHEBOLUC, Waurn Ponds v GEELONG CITY, St Peters v TORQUAY. If ever a team had a chance of sneaking in the back door for a finals berth with an outright win, Meredith has it in division three. Sitting seventh two points behind Bannockburn and four behind Inverleigh, Meredith hosts North Shore this weekend. Bannockburn plays Corio, while Inverleigh faces Teesdale. This round looks like having plenty of twists, so it might not be clear until late next Saturday whose season is over and whose dream is still alive. Selections: TEESDALE v Inverleigh, LETHBRIDGE v Corio Bay, LITTLE RIVER v Shelford, Modewarre v WINCHELSEA, Corio v BANNOCKBURN, MEREDITH v North Shore.
