Students sweat on new school in ‘disgraceful’ conditions BY ERIN PEARSON TORQUAY College secondary students are sweating in portable classrooms without air-conditioners while waiting for State Government to deliver a new standalone high school, according to a Labor MP. Member Western Victoria Region Gayle Tierney raised in parliament last week the “utterly disgraceful” conditions at Torquay. “For every day the Government fails to fulfill its promise, major impacts are being felt on the campus,” Ms Tierney said. “Because of the staggered lunch and recess times, students in physical education classes are forced to share sports grounds with students on their lunch and recess breaks. Because of substandard power, a set of portable classrooms was without air-conditioning. “After 15 months of complete and utter debacle by the Baillieu Government on the new Torquay secondary school, the community’s question of when (its) new school will be ready continues to remain unanswered.” Liberal South Barwon MP Andrew Katos announced in May that the Government would provide Torquay with its “largest ever” education investment on a new secondary college and land for a second state primary school. Torquay College council vice president David Bell said the Government made an offer last week to buy land for the secondary school. “An announcement on the new school is imminent,” he said. Mr Katos had not responded to the Independent’s request for comment before the paper went to press on Wednesday afternoon.

‘No say’ for tours BY ERIN PEARSON SURF Coast Shire failed to consult tour operators before announcing plans to kick buses out of Bells Beach Surfing Reserve, according to an industry representative. Go West Bus Tour managing director Terry Smit said 40 per cent of his tours visited Bells but the shire only contacted him after revealing the buses plan last week. Tourism industry operators wanted “mutually beneficial” facilities for buses and surfers, he said.

Bells ban surprises bus operators Tour operators were even willing to pay for access if the shire fixed the reserve’s “unreliable” toilet block, he said. “I’m aware there has been an amount of agitation from surfers but I don’t think the coordination of discussion has been the way it should be. “Any dislocation of our ability to visit Bells Beach would be undesirable. Buses parking 15 minutes down the road or in town isn’t viable.”

Mr Smit said operators would be happy to park in the eastern side of the reserve out of the existing area for buses if the shire provided facilities. He defended his passengers against perceptions they were “bloodsucking non-contributors to the local community”. They simply wanted to enjoy the beauty of the reserve, he said. The shire began digging up bitumen and vegetation to

improve parking bays for six coaches late last month. Bells Beach Preservation Society President Maurice Cole said the shire had stonewalled both surfers and tourism operators. “There has been little or no community consultation,” he said. “The new parking arrangements installed the other week cost around $70,000 and just weeks later the shire is saying

it’s considering removing buses from the reserve. What a waste of money.” Barrister and former Bells Beach advisory committee member Andrew Dickenson was concerned the shire was rushing through changes to its Bells Beach master plan. He believed the shire wanted the issue out of the spotlight before Easter’s Rip Curl Pro. Mr Dickenson urged the shire to deal with the issues “properly”. Surf Coast Shire refuses to answer questions from the Independent.

Axed bus trials ‘cost up to $335 per head’

in brief

BY MICHELLE HERBISON SUBSIDIES of up to $335 a passenger have convinced State Government to scrap a Bannockburn loop bus trial introduced under Labor, Transport Minister Terry Mulder has revealed. Mr Mulder said the service was so underused that only one in 10 trips carried a single passenger. The Bannockburn loop was one of four Transport Connections Program bus trials to be scrapped in the Geelong region this week. The Government also axed services running from: Moriac to Waurn Ponds and Torquay; Queenscliff to Jan Juc; and Winchelsea and Moriac to Waurn Ponds and Torquay. The program’s Colac-to-Lorne serv-

A GEELONG detective has been nominated for a prestigious award for “fighting serious and organised crime”, according to Victoria Police. A spokesperson said Detective Leading Senior Constable Daryl Crosthwaite was in line to win the honour for his work with Geelong Criminal Investigation Unit over the past 20 years.

ice is under review. Mr Mulder said the Moriac-toWaurn-Ponds-and-Torquay bus carried fewer than two passengers a trip. But a Geelong-to-Bannockburn route would become permanent, he said. “This local bus has been well-supported by local communities, carrying an average of slightly more than seven passengers a trip,” Mr Mulder said. Mr Mulder confirmed the Government would cancel 30 routes around the state, make 27 permanent and reassess 10. “Labor grossly mismanaged projects such as Transport Connections and wasted millions of taxpayers’ dollars,” he said.

Mr Mulder pointed to a 2011 Auditor General’s finding that cast doubt on whether the Transport Connections buses were worthwhile. Shadow transport minister Fiona Richardson said the cuts would impact students, the elderly, disabled and unemployed. “These improved transport services provided rural and regional Victorians with opportunities to attend medical appointments, work, attend social functions and contribute to local economies,” she said. “Labor introduced the Transport Connections Program to improve transport options for people living in rural and regional Victoria.” Public Transport Users Association

Geelong convener Paul Westcott said the program was an “obvious target” for cost cutting. “Because it was just a stop-gap measure it couldn’t provide services people were going to use in any real way. The services were run on a shoestring.” Mr Westcott said the initial proposal was “like a glorified taxi service” for people unable to drive. But council-employed coordinators involved in the program had identified a need for more timetabled buses, he said. “We’d like to see a more-comprehensive and well-planned regional and rural bus and public transport network.”

TAC backs golf day to rehabilitate smash victims GEELONG’S TAC office is acutely aware of Victoria’s “hidden road toll”, according to its chief executive officer. Janet Dore said the organisation accepted about 19,000 claims each year from road accident victims around the state. That’s why the TAC has sponsored this year’s Independent McKellar Centre Charity Golf Day. The event will raise money to buy Victoria’s first upper-limb evaluation kit, which the region’s peak rehabilitation and aged care facility will use to help road accident victims recover arm function. Ms Dore said the state’s road toll had declined over the past 30 yeas but 6000 Victorians were still “seriously injured” in crashes each year. “These people and their injuries are what we refer to as the hidden road toll. “These are the Victorians seri-

ously injured on our roads who are always focussing on coping with the physical and emotional scars left from road trauma.” “For them, a milestone worth celebrating is vastly different to the average Victorian. It might be learning to walk again, getting back to work or simply being able to shower or feed themselves without the help of an aid. “We are pleased to support the McKellar Centre in its endeavour to bring the first upper limb evaluation kit to Victoria and help our clients achieve independence.” Organisers have issued a final call for entries for the golf day’s Ambrose competition, starting 8am next Friday at 13th Beach golf course. Teams and individuals wanting to play should phone Kerry O’Sullivan on 5279 2222 or email him on kerryo@barwon- In the swing: TAC’s Tony Sedunary helps boss Janet Dore perfect her swing.

‘Busy’ libraries seeking a state funding injection Call for tips over BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG’S regional libraries are now the second busiest in the state, according to their chief executive officer. Patti Manolis said latest figures helped push the case for State Government funding for Geelong Regional Library Corporation. An outcry over Geelong library funding cuts last year demonstrated community support for further Government backing, she said. The Independent revealed last year that the Government had slashed library funding in July. Ms Manolis said the corporation used the new figures in a submission to a Tomorrow’s Library community consultation this week with Ministerial Advisory Council on Public Libraries chair David Morris MP. “Support from community organisations and individuals pushed the case for Geelong’s proposed library and heritage centre redevelopment,” Ms Manolis said. He said community submissions sought investment in digital and online formats, more library spaces and information technology services. “With a rapidly growing population projected to reach 500,000 by 2050 and with the redevelopment of the Geelong library set to start soon, it’s timely that we are having this conversation,” he said.

Belmont robbery

BY ERIN PEARSON AN ARMED robbery at a Belmont pharmacy has prompted police to appeal for information. Investigators said two male offenders wearing cloth-type masks entered the High St shop about 8.45pm on March 2. One of the men produced a knife before demanding staff hand over prescription drugs from a safe, they said. The other demanded cash from another staff member. The investigator said the thieves fled the store with cash and prescription drugs. Police believed the offenders were last seen heading north from a car park behind the pharmacy. The staff described one offender as 170cm with a solid build and wearing a black hooded-top with the word ‘zero’ across the front. The other offender was described 178cm and with a thin build. Police urged anyone with information to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or visit its website at crimestoppers.com.au.

Push for AFL here ‘at night’ GEELONG CATS want to host at least one Friday night match next year but expect to get Saturday night-time games, according to chief Brian Cook. Mr Cook said the third stage of Simonds Stadium’s redevelopment, including playing-standard lights, was due to be ready by round six next year. “I think we’ll certainly see some night games but I think probably more Saturday night games early on, to be honest,” Mr Cook told AFL.com.au. “At the moment, of the nine

start times for AFL footy, we can only fit into two: Saturday and Sunday afternoon. That really reduces the flexibility of the AFL to fixture games down here. “When we have lights we can start at any one of the nine times, so I think our fixture will be played all over the place. Maybe one or two might be on a Friday night but we’ll just have to wait and see.” Mr Cook admitted the redevelopment would cause the club some “financial pain” in the interim.

The $49 million redevelopment of the former Doug Wade stand will boost ground capacity to 34,000. “This year the bottom line isn’t good because we’re down a stand and that will cost us $1 million, so this year we’re looking, at best, at probably a break-even, which is a little bit sad given we’ve had 12 profits in a row,” Mr Cook said. “But such is life. We just have to try to make ends meet and make the extra dollars in the years to come.”

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN GEELONG’S migrants face particular challenges understanding road rules, according to an RACV spokesperson. Road user behaviour manager Melinda Congiu said new TAC research had highlighted road safety issues facing migrants. The research found that many migrants needed three or more attempts to gain learner’s permits or probationary licences. Ms Congiu said only half of migrants reported getting help to obtain a licence. But a new road safety initiative was aimed at helping migrants gain experience and training on the road, she said. “The RACV New Arrivals Road Safety Program offers funding to community groups support-

ing new migrants.” Ms Congiu said the funding could help pay for lessons with professional instructors, tuition for volunteer drivers supervising migrants and road safety information sessions. “We found that mobility and licensing are the key issues faced by new arrivals as they attempt to integrate within their new communities,” Ms Congiu said. “Driving lessons are important however the cost is often a barrier.” The TAC-supported program invites community groups conducting road safety programs for

new arrivals to apply for funding. Successful groups will be able to use the funding to complement existing road safety programs with driving lessons or information sessions with accredited RACV driving instructors. “It’s a practical way of giving new migrants the skills and driving experience they need to obtain their licence and help them become integrated into their new community,” Ms Congiu said. Carmel Carol, who coordinates a migrant driver program for Geelong multicultural services provider Diversitat, said the organisation would apply for funding. “Migrants can’t afford to have many lessons and many come from a non-motorised country, so there’s a lot to learn.”

GAS HEATING SAFETY Beware Carbon Monoxide… It’s a “Silent Killer” A warning to home owners who have gas heating regarding the dangers of carbon monoxide. It is a poison that you can’t smell or taste. But can be given off by your heater without you even knowing it. There have been a number of deaths from carbon monoxide poisoning in Victoria in the last few years and Energy Safe Victoria is aware of countless near misses where people have nearly died from carbon monoxide poisoning. It is mainly faulty or unserviced gas heaters

which can cause carbon monoxide to be produced. Energy Safe Victoria and the Plumbing Industry Commission recommend that gas heating be serviced by a licensed or registered gasfitter before the start of winter. Gasfitters who service the appliance must have a carbon monoxide analyser/detector that has been calibrated correctly. The reading must be less than 10 parts per million (PPM).

‘Support’ for garden recreation. A quarter of all respondents preferred that an existing indigenous garden remain on the site with “little or no change”. Queen St resident Joe Rutecki thought the survey was unrepresentative of community opinion on the site. He said filling the open space was unnecessary because the town’s primary school, YMCA groups, football teams and families used the space for passive recreation. Borough of Queenscliffe Mayor Bob Merriman said the survey was “all-embracing”. “All of the community had an opportunity to respond,” he said. “One has to take recognition that the outcome of the survey is what the community’s wishes are. “If anybody has a different view they should let us know pretty quickly.”

Borough of Queenscliffe council heard this week that 224 residents returned a questionnaire in January seeking their opinions on three proposals for the land. Sixty-three per cent supported botanic gardens, 52 supported a community vegetable garden and 58 wanted a community building. Thirty-eight per cent of respondents preferred to maintain the site in its existing state. Council heard that supporters of a botanic garden most commonly said it would enhance the entry to Queenscliff. A quarter of gardens objectors preferred to retain the land for passive

BY ERIN PEARSON OCEAN GROVE wannabe funnyman Jackson Hand is one witty teenager. The 17-year-old recently took a break from his year 12 studies at St Joseph’s College to win the Geelong heat of Melbourne International Comedy Festival’s Class Clowns. Now he has his sights on the big stage. Previous Class Clowns have included now-professional comedians such as Josh Thomas and Joel Creasey. Jackson entered the competition on the advice of a friend who noted his talent for gags. “I very much try to put in a little witty comment here and there every day,” Jackson said. “It’s always been who I am but I never thought this would all happen so fast. “Now I’ve done Class Clowns and had a taste of it I’ve realised how fun comedy is and it’s all I can think about.” Jackson said his experience had prompted him to begin plotting a new career path. “My other option is to go to university and study accounting but that’s getting a back seat just for now.” Jackson listed comedians Tim Minchin and Arj Barker as inspirations. “They both use a great play on words and I enjoy twisting words around, so I’d love to be like them one day.” Jackson said he used his friends to test material but denied they tired of his puns and punch lines. “I’m lucky I have good friends who’ll either laugh or abuse me for my jokes,” he

BY JOHN VAN KLAVEREN AUSTRALIA has one of the world’s lowest levels of government investment in the automotive industry, according to Ford boss Robert Graziano. The president and chief executive officer of Ford Australia used a business breakfast in Geelong this week to call for increased government assistance. Mr Graziano wanted more investment and intervention in the face of increasing “competitive intensity”. But he refused to be drawn on the future of Geelong’s Ford plant or the company’s flagship vehicle, the Falcon. Mr Graziano reiterated the company’s previous announcement of a $103 million investment to secure the future of the Falcon and Territory to 2016. But he suggested the Geelong

plant was crucial to Ford Australia. “We can’t run Broadmeadows without Geelong and its stamping and powertrain capabilities,” he told the breakfast. Mr Graziano said Ford’s future had attracted “intense media coverage in recent months”. Motoring writers have cast doubt over the future of the Falcon in the face of dropping sales figures, down 22 per cent to 19,000 last year. They have written that major manufacturers’ shift to “world cars” sounded a death knell for domestic Australian models. Ford has admitted the future of Broadmeadows and Geelong factories had been under “scrutiny”. Mr Graziano said Australian Government investment in the industry was a “modest” $17.80 per capita, way behind many other countries investing five or 10

He predicted the Australian market would grow to 1.3 million units annually, with more imports of Chinese and Indian cars.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;By providing both policing and support services under the one roof there is an opportunity to turn this around. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will enable Geelong police to more effectively target and investigate the individuals who commit these atrocious crimes.â&#x20AC;? Department of Human Services acting regional director Anne Congleton said previously Geelong victims had to repeat their recounts to multiple officials and counsellors.

Liaisons with Karen inspire copâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book on refugees BY ERIN PEARSON YEARS spent working with migrant communities in Geelong and Melbourneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s west have inspired policeman Richard Dove to write a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book. Leading Senior Constable Dove, of Lara, said Us Karen was probably Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first picture book about Burmese refugees in Australia. Ld Sen Const Dove, who worked as Victoria Policeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s multicultural liaison officer for the past six years, said his book used â&#x20AC;&#x153;child-friendlyâ&#x20AC;? language to recount the journey of ethnic Karen people to Australia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of schools and families have received the book to show children where they came from and show others their journey here,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The response to it has been quite overwhelming. I had no idea there would be such a fuss. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve published 1000 copies and already more than 600 have gone out in just a matter of weeks.â&#x20AC;? Ld Sen Const Dove said Us Karen was written, designed and illustrated to instil pride, admiration and acceptance of the Karen culture. The book would be distributed free to schools and kindergartens in Geelong and Wyndham and Hobsons Bay city councils as well as to refugee camps on the Thai-Burma border, he said. Michael Martinez, chief executive officer of Geelong multicultural services provider Diversitat, said the book would complement the organisationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work. Any education material on the journey of Karen people was â&#x20AC;&#x153;fantasticâ&#x20AC;?, he said.

police investigators, child protection staff, counsellors, forensic medical personnel and health officers, Mr Ashton said. Geelong had a high rate of child abuse and sexual assault reports that needed to be dealt with sensitively, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the last year weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen a 31 per cent increase in the reporting of rape in the Geelong precinct.

Club speaking up Join the club JOHN VAN KLAVEREN Geelong club president Veronica Kratzmann called Toastmasters a “proven way of building speaking and leadership skills”. “Our club has helped many people in a fun and friendly environment – and at minimal cost.” Veronica said the skills acquired through Toastmasters could be used in a variety of situations such as work presentations, functions, job interviews

or even one-on-one. “Our members come from all walks of life, including professionals, students, stay-at-home parents and retirees. “There’s also a mix of levels in speaking skill, from some who are very accomplished to some who are complete novices. “Once you experience greater speaking confidence it spreads to other areas of life as well.” Veronica said the club provided basic materials to get started. “It’s a friendly, supportive environment where you can practice while receiving constructive evaluation.” Toastmasters even has a competitive edge, with an international speech contest run through each district. But the emphasis was on praise and improvement,

Belmont Village raises $2500

Veronica said. “Not everyone wants to compete but for some it’s a progression from what they’ve learned. “In fact, many professional speakers on the circuit these days point to their humble beginnings at Toastmasters. “It’s wonderful to see people come out of their shell and see the growth in their confidence.” Veronica said Toastmasters International had a standard meeting format so travelling members could always feel at home in any club. Guests were always welcome at Toastmasters meetings, she said. Veronica said anyone interested in joining one of Geelong’s two Toastmasters clubs should phone David Parr on 5250 5984 or visit d73.toastmasters.org.au.

Belmont Shopping Village staff and customers have raised more than $2500 for the Leukaemia Foundation’s World’s Greatest Shave. Centre spokeswoman Leanne McConnell said the Belmont Village team was represented by Julie Beattie, Bruce Dolezal and Bill McConnell. Many others donated $4 to have their hair colour green, she said. “Two young boys also shaved their heads on the day. Sevenyear-old Will raised $2000 on his own and Jacob, 10, also raised money for the great cause,” Leanne said. “It was great to see all our loyal customers getting behind us. “Thank you to everyone who participated and all the volunteers on the day for such a great job. “A special thanks to Just Cuts, Belmont Village Meats and Brumby’s for their kind donations and support and Michel’s patisseries who donated 50 cents from the sale of every green cupcake sold on the day.” Leanne said it was great to see local businesses and the Geelong community unite for such a great cause.

THEY can be heard at weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, sometimes even business events. “I’m not much of a speaker,” they begin hesitantly before proceeding to do their best to cope with the podium limelight thrust upon them. The art of spoken communication comes naturally to only a few, as City of Greater Geelong Toastmasters club members readily admit. And even for the naturals, quite a bit of preparation goes into making a speech. Fear of public speaking is still rated in surveys as a fate worse than death, so Toastmasters members see it is a lifesaver. The 88-year-old organisation claims it has helped more than four million people worldwide overcome the speaking yips.

Cards from MPs a privacy breach

Last week: Birthday cards from MPs anger reader Andrew Podolak. et cetera companies wants to know your birth date when you ring up. They won’t talk to you

Fantastic alternatives SADLY, I must inform EA Cross (Letters, March 9) that fossils fuels are not inexpensive. The burning of oil, coal and gas is already having devastating impacts on many countries’ livelihoods, including our own. As well as paying to burn oil, gas and coal there are many other costs. Respiratory diseases in large cities and in areas where coal is burnt burden our health system. The fossil fuel industry is given $500 million in fuel subsidies paid with our taxes. The severity of extreme weather events that our nation has experienced will continue to worsen. We pay for these disasters through taxpayer-funded government assistance and our insurance premiums. Our children will pay dearly for our profligate use of fossil fuels, which would be better saved and used to make useful products rather than being burnt. Fantastic alternatives have already been invented and are already in commercial use. How wonderful it would be if Australia truly became a smart country and better-supported research and development into fossil fuel alternatives. Leigh Adamson Belmont

Reviewed, not failed

BARELY a week goes by when we don’t hear of an Australian manufacturer announcing a planned closure or relocation overseas. Examples include clothing company Colorado, paper manufacturer Australian Envelopes, schooluniform manufacturer Fairy Meadow’s Poppets Schoolwear, Moretein and Dettol producer Reckitt Benckiser and steel manufacturer BlueScope Steelto. Locally Alcoa is teetering on the brink. At a time when Australian manufacturing is under unprecedented input-cost pressure, the federal Labor Government is irresponsibly pushing on with its internationally record high carbon tax. The timing of the introduction of this new input tax couldn’t be worse for Geelong and Australia. Internationally, countries are shying away from introducing a carbon tax. Japan has deferred introduction of emissions trading, while US President Barack Obama recently advised the timing was wrong for the US to pass any new plan to fight global warming. If Labor’s decision to push on alone isn’t bad enough, the starting price for the Australian carbon tax of $23 a tonne is grossly overpriced compared to European prices of below $10 a tonne. International projections suggest Europe’s price will be $5 a tonne in 2020 when Australia’s price will be edging to $100 if Labor and the Greens have their way. The proposed Australian carbon tax will legislate local manufacturing jobs out of existence. Australians, regardless of political persuasion, must join together to force Labor to urgently rethink the timing and level of the proposed carbon tax while some remnants of manufacturing remain in Geelong and Australia.

Shooters targeted WITH Victoria’s duck shooting season open, a group of Geelong environmentalists and bird lovers have formed Barwon Anti Duck Shooting (BADS) to petition State Government to follow other states in permanently banning recreational shooting of native water birds. Western Australia, New South Wales and Queensland believe duck shooting is cruel, ecologically unsustainable and sociably unacceptable. But Victorian Agriculture Minister Peter Walsh announced that hunters could look forward to a bumper season. Other BADS activities include a Facebook page and an on-line petition with signatures and comments from around the world. BADS supporter Coalition Against Duck Shooting has tried to have Lake Connewarre closed to shooting for years, using the fact that magpie geese, Australasian bitterns, little bitterns, brolgas and blue billed and freckled ducks, which are on the threatened fauna list, are all present on the wetlands. Lake Connewarre is home to over 150 bird species, several listed under international protection agreements. Twelve of the lake’s plant and animal species are listed as threatened under Victoria’s Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988. BADS believes Victoria should set a shinning, civilized example to new migrants and refugees, many of whom are from violent backgrounds. John Bowman Ocean Grove

CLIFF Winkler was wrong to suggest the Anglesea borefield had failed (Letters, March 16). The borefield was established as part of a strategy to secure Geelong’s water. The project was fasttracked during the severe drought, which saw storages plummet to a record low 14 per cent. The borefield is ultimately expected to have the capacity to meet 20 per cent of Geelong’s existing demand. Six of the planned seven bores have been constructed and are delivering over 16 million litres of water every day to Wurdee Boluc Reservoir. Since the first bore was brought into service in November, 2009, the borefield has produced more than six billion litres of water – water that has not needed to be sourced from the Barwon system. Barwon Water is undertaking a review of trigger levels dictating sustainable extraction. Additional data from the review will be extremely valuable in determining future operations. The cost of the project will be $60 million, at least $15 million below budget. The saving is the direct result of innovation, tight management and competitive tendering. Mr Winkler also suggested augmenting Geelong’s supplies from the Gellibrand or Aire rivers. Significant investment in water and recycled water infrastructure in recent years means there is no need

I HEARTILY agree with David McRae’s condemnation of the Victorian Government for wasting money on fluoridating our drinking water (Letters, March 9). That’s bad enough but even more serious is that not everyone can tolerate fluoride, so our Government is putting these people at risk of becoming sick. With no childhood history of breathing problems, I have suffered severe asthma and skin reactions since I was poisoned by fluoride at work as a teenager in the 1960s. I now have to avoid any exposure so I can breath. To survive I must avoid fluoride in the same way some people have to keep away from peanuts. All my doctors tell me the only way I can stay well is to totally avoid fluoride. Some people I have spoken to with similar reactions to fluoride have to avoid tap water and instead buy non-fluoridated bottled water. But how do you wash yourself? Even having a shower in fluoridated water gives me asthma and itchy skin ulcers but traveling to an unfluoridated town, like Airey’s Inlet, for a shower still costs me over $100 rental a night. Now that fluoride is in our water I am left wondering how other fluoride-sensitive people manage to avoid the chemical. Elaine Valentine East Geelong

I AGREE with Andrew Podolak (Independent March 16, page 3) regarding MP Richard Marles et al sending birthday cards to constituents (Independent, March 16). Mr Marles does not know us from a bar of soap. He sent my wife a card and my first thought was by what right and how did he get her birth date. By using his position as an MP to access confidential government information was my guess. All the MPs’ other mail-outs are a waste of our money, too.

THE NOKIA LUMINA 800 HAS ARRIVED!

News: Nokia Lumina 800 date for the Lumia 900, the Lumia 800 is its “flagship” Windows Phone 7 device. Indeed, given the glacial pace at which Windows Phone 7 devices have hit the market relative to Android, it’s something of a flagship phone for Windows Phone 7 itself. It’s to Windows Phone 7’s benefit, then that the Lumia 800 is in most respects an excellent smartphone. It’s got the gorgeous visual style of the Nokia N9, for a start, although the review model tested with was the black one — easily the least visually impressive Lumia 800. The N9 was a phone that I loved visually but couldn’t quite accept due to the fact that it was a lonely wanderer in a smartphone wilderness,

given Nokia’s never going to pitch out another Meegobased handset. The Lumia 800 doesn’t have that limitation; clearly Nokia’s got big plans for Windows Phone 7, even if it is starting things off rather slow in terms of handset models. • Latest OS Windows 7.5 (Mango) is super smooth & responsive, with no lag at all.

GAMING: XBOX 720 you say? Rumors are rife that Microsoft is hard at work on the highly anticipated nextgeneration Xbox 720. Reports flooding the internet have suggested that the new Xbox 720, which reared its head back in 2005, will arrive later this year. Others, however, are of the opinion that the new gaming console will arrive only in 2014 or 2015. This is from the fact that Microsoft themselves had announced that the Xbox 360 has a lifespan of 10 years. If the theory is maintained, then the fans will have to wait till 2015 for the next Xbox from the Redmond-based company.

Windows 8’s Metro design similarly removes window chrome to put the focus on content. The Metro version of Internet Explorer feels slick and comfortable using both touch and mouse and keyboard interaction. Particular highlights are the tile-based favorites view and the tab thumbnails, both shown to good effect in Microsoft’s post on their website.

Nokia’s Lumia 800 takes the gorgeous design of the N9 and slaps a new coat of Windows Phone 7 paint. The end result is a phone that’ll be drooled over by Windows Phone 7 aficionados, and could well influence a few switchers along the way. When Gizmodo US reviewed the Lumia 800, they referred to it as “unattainable Foreign Beauty” — a gorgeouslooking Windows Phone 7 handset that wasn’t easy to get your hands on. That was some time back, though, and Nokia’s finally got the Lumia 800 out on Australian store shelves, along with quite a large advertising push. It’s easy to see why; Nokia’s essentially bet the farm on Windows Phone 7, and until we get a firm release

Reader reverb BY MICHELLE HERBISON NOTHING is better than “God’s reverb”, according to Scottish singer Eddi Reader. The pop and folk star said she was looking forward to “singing to the rafters” of Geelong’s St Mary’s Basilica on Wednesday. She will perform at the basilica with her Eddi Reader Quartet bandmates Boo Hewerdine, Ian Carr and Alan Kelly. Reader has enjoyed a shining career dating back to the ’80s with Fairground Attraction and its worldwide hit Perfect. She has also enjoyed recent success with a Songs of Robert Burns collection. Reader said she enjoyed “playing at a grassroots level”. “At the moment I’m a bit of a greedy bastard for touring because the kids have grown up

Basilica gig: Eddi Reader. and are out of the house,” she laughed. Reader credited her spontaneous performance style to a

song-filled upbringing among a family of ship-builders. “A song could change the mood. If somebody was having an argument, all it took was my uncle to sing a song and it was over. “I don’t have a set, I just kind of feel it. I have about 16 pieces of paper with different lists.” Reader considered performing ancient folk songs as carrying them forward rather than looking back in time. “I see these old tunes as a telephone line through humanity. If I’m singing to you ‘My love is like a red, red rose’ somebody 50 years ago was singing it and 50 years before that. “It’s so important to keep them alive because they explain who we are.”

Well, it beats the s… out of bowls.” Gregory promised to avoid the mistake of many comedians in trying to impress rivals rather of audiences. “A lot of comedians today are all about political satire instead of just

the stand-up funny stuff,” he observed. “It’s a real mistake because the people who come to watch are bricklayers and secretaries who’ve done a hard day’s work. They just want to sit down and have a good old-fashion belly laugh.” Gregory will perform at Buckley’s Entertainment Centre, Breakwater, on April 4.

Lara’s elegant old lady restored

Lara’s elegant old lady, the Pirra Homestead, has a past as interesting as its future. The two storey mansion was built in 1880, complete with intricate wrought iron lace work and an impressive balcony. By the turn of the century Pirra was the place to be. She regularly threw parties where rich pastoralists rubbed shoulders with Lara locals. Cricket – she had her own turf wicket and picturesque field was the order of the day. In 1907 Pirra became what we would now call a rehab centre for alcoholics. Her most famous resident in this period was John Curtin, who recovered to be Prime Minister of Australia and lead the country through the dark years of World War II. After the war Pirra was transformed again and again… from a family farm to the State’s tobacco company to a Pelaco shirt factory. The old lady was then carved up, with a large section of the grounds becoming the

present day Serendip Wildlife Sanctuary. The main house became the Pirra Girls Home in 1961 and from 1983 she was used as an arts centre. When the Bisinella family purchased her in 2006, Pirra was looking rather worse for wear. So began the journey to bring the old lady back to her glory days. Craftsmen thoughtfully and authentically restored the rooms back to their former elegance. After years of loving and painstaking renovation, Pirra is once again resplendent. A magnificent location for the Lara Food and Wine Festival, the old lady has regained her place as Lara’s elegant hostess. The Lara Food and Wine Festival Committee thanks Bisinella Developments for generously granting free access to Pirra and her facilities. The festival would not be possible without the significant support provided by the Bisinella family.

This is an edited version of an article written by Tara Iacovella on behalf of the festival committee.

Rosa’s big fun iminutive cooking icon Rosa Mitchell is looking forward to big things at this weekend’s Lara Food & Wine Festival. In fact, the Melbourne restuaranteur and food author expects MasterChef star Matt Preston to be bigger than ever. The famous duo will share the stage for cooking demonstrations and taste tests in front of thousands of festival patrons. “The funny thing is that I’m four foot ten and a half (inches) and Matt’s just huge,” Mitchell laughed. “I must be shrinking because the last time I saw him I thought he was taller than the time before. “I’ll have to stand on a crate to talk to him.” Preston will also be on hand to judge the festival’s Ultimate Chef Challenge, pitting six of the region’s best chefs in a 15-minute battle to create a culinary masterpiece. Mitchell said she would run a cooking demonstration emphasising the versatility of ricotta. “I’m Sicilian, so I just love ricotta,” she said. “It’s something people buy and do simple things with, like stuff cannaloni, but it can be made into something sweet, something savoury, all sorts of things. “I even whip it with honey as a substitute for cream.” Mitchell said she was excited about attending her first Lara festival. “I haven’t worked with Matt for a long time, so I’m really looking forward to it.” She believed the growing popularity of the festival reflected a resurgence in home cooking. “Shows like Matt’s MasterChef deserve a lot of the credit,” Rosa said. “They have really inspired people to get creative in their kitchens using good quality fresh ingredients.” The fourth-annual Lara Food & Wine Festival will feature more than 80 stalls showcasing some of the region’s finest produce at historic Pirra Homestead, on Windemere Rd, this Sunday. Entertainment and children’s activities will also be part of the fun. Entry will cost a gold coin, with parking free. More information is available at larafoodandwinefestival.com.au.

BY ERIC BLAIR he all-new Peugeot 508 sits in size between the 407 and 607 and supersedes both models. Peugeot buyers are amongst the most loyal in the industry and the French company is looking to capture buyers from both of the 508’s predecessors. The 508 is sold in sedan and station wagon format, the latter a large spacious model that will suit many buyers’ needs. Indeed the wagon fits perfectly into the idea known as the ‘grand touring’ segment. Designers were given the task of refining the 508’s appearance to make it look as if it were sculpted out of a single piece of metal and toning down the large radiator grille to take some of the aggression out of it. Add to this subtle lines of chrome trim around the side windows and placing the company’s bold lion mascot, without its erstwhile restraining outline, prominently on the leading edge of the bonnet and the 508 takes on a presence that speaks prestige. The rear has the boot flush with the bumper, a horizontal chrome strip across it drawing attention to the three clusters of six LEDs, which, when lit, reflect the lion’s claw of the company badge. The smooth contours of the body – note that they are unfettered by windscreen wiper jets and aerials – enhance the aerodynamic aspects of the vehicles (a Cd of just 0.25 is most impressive), while the use of lightweight materials, takes the weight under that of the 407 it replaces. That’s clever.

Feline smooth: Lines of the latest Peugeot are clean and sleek, providing excellent aero penetration.

We love the subtle lines of chrome trim around the side windows that give this modestly priced car a feeling of prestige. You really do get a lot of car for your money with the range beginning at just $36,990 for the Active 1.6litre turbo-petrol model. The use of lightweight materials trims consumption even further and clever engineering means the 508 has less mass than the significantly smaller Peugeot 407 it replaces. Peugeot 508 passengers are cosseted in a manner found in few other vehicles, even those with a much higher price tag. The front windscreen is set up to filter sound from the outside, hydro-elastic suspension mounts muffle road noise and the engineers have come up with a system they call an ‘active front axle damper’ to further distance the 508’s occupants from the outer world. The 508 has many active safety features, among them cornering brake control, and electronic stability and traction control. Passive safety is also top notch and the Peugeot has a European five-star crash rating. The bumper and bonnet are pedestrian friendly with a black strip at the lower edge of the front bumper designed to lift a person struck and prevent them from being dragged under the vehicle. Rear parking alarms are standard, while front parking assist, standard on Allure and GT models incorporates a space measurement function which provides information about the possibility of parking the vehicle in a free spot and the degree of difficulty in performing the manoeuvre. You get a lot of style and driving satisfaction in the latest Peugeot 508 range. As well as astonishing economy if you’re prepared to put up with the vagaries of the self-shifting manual gearbox. If you want something more conventional there’s a 2.2-litre turbodiesel model driving through a regular automatic that’s a sheer delight to travel in. The economy story doesn’t stop there. Peugeot is also working on the development of a diesel-electric hybrid that will have even lower fuel use and CO2 emissions down around the 100 grams per kilometre mark. The Peugeot 508 provides the perfect accompaniment to enjoying interior space on a par with the 607 and up a notch (53 mm more rear leg room) from the 407. Grand touring indeed.

ALL CARS

The subject of this week’s review is the latest addition to the Peugeot range, an ultra economy model called the 508 e-HDi. Using the new-generation, fuelsaving technology fuel it has consumption measured at a mere 4.4 litres per 100 kilometres. That puts it in line with much smaller cars with either petrolelectric powertrains or small diesel engines. Our road testing was unfortunately done during a very busy period in the car industry so we only managed to put just 427 kilometres on the clock of the economy Peugeot 508. At the end of the time the trip computer estimated there was another 980 km left in the car. That ultra low consumption was achieved by running mainly in easy motorway and country conditions, but is achievable without any special driving techniques. Around town the big Peugeot will still be sitting in the five to seven litres per hundred kilometres range when tackling traffic. That’s the good news, the bad news is that one of the factors in the fuel economy is the use of an old-style self-shifting manual gearbox which has all the irritating characteristics that have led to other makers giving them up. The six-speed Peugeot unit is rough in its changes, particularly in the lower gears, which is in stark contrast to a car that’s supremely smooth and comfortable in every other way. The reasons for the use of this gearbox are simple – low consumption. Even the best double-clutch and torque convertor automatic transmissions aren’t able to produce the economy of a full manual gearbox. The self-changing manual is teamed with a stop-start system that cuts the small (1.6-litre) turbo-diesel engine when the Peugeot is stationary. It fires up again with only a slight tremble and we rate it as about mid-range in the stopstart four-cylinder engine field. Enough of the bad news, a far more pleasing factor in the low consumption is the use of a slippery body, one that’s aerodynamic not only in the visible areas, but also under the car. The French car maker - Peugeot is the world’s oldest automotive name plate has long been famed for its Gallic style. The body of the 508 looks as though it has been sculpted out of a single piece of metal. The coefficient of drag (Cd) figure of just 0.25 is most impressive.

BY ERIC BLAIR enior Korean engineers flew here to sample Australian backroads and to understand the way Aussies like to drive. The result is the new Kia Optima with its suspension and steering specifically tailored for Australian conditions. The new Optima also has the characteristic Kia family radiator grille with its indented upper and lower horizontal surfaces, although this time around the indentations have been repeated in the shape of the top edge of the windscreen. The most outstanding sections of the new Kia Optima’s shape are above the waistline. The domed upper surface and high waistline remind us of the Mercedes CLS and VW Passat CC. In the Optima the dome shape is further emphasised by a wide chromed strip that runs from the base of the A-pillar, over the upper sections of the doors and then ends at the lower section of the C-pillar. Inside, the Kia Optima has a big focus on the driving position, with a Saab-like dash layout that works nicely. Safety features include daytime running lights, ABS brakes with brake assist, ESP (Electronic

Stability Program), active headrests and six airbags. One luxury item that is missing from the list of Optima features is a satellite navigation system. Its development hasn’t yet been completed in Korea, but when that work is finalised it’s expected be added to Australian models within a matter of months. Other than that you get a huge amount of equipment in a car costing just $36,990, plus onroad costs. Power comes from a 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine producing up to 148 kW of power and 250 Nm of torque. The latter is an impressive figure from a 2.4litre engine as getting 100 Newton metres per litre of engine capacity is not an easy task. Steering input is prompt, the car feeds back its intentions to the driver well and the Optima is happy to corner briskly in a neat and neutral manner. Only when it’s pushed hard does some safe understeer enter the equation. However, the use of 18-inch alloy wheels and low profile tyres to tie in with the latest fashion fad means the Optima can be harsh on very rough roads. It handles normal bush roads with ease. The big Kia Optima Platinum sedan provides quiet, relaxing travel that sees it eat up the miles with a minimum of fuss.

us Dent has been servicing the Geelong area for the past nine years, offering paintless dent repair as a cost effective way of repairing vehicle dents and dings that have not cracked or chipped paintwork. Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aus Dent can get the job done right the first time with no sanding, fillers or expensive paintwork. With award-winning technicians, be assured your car is in good hands. Paintless dent removal leaves vehicles with the original finish, so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no mismatched paintwork or repair marks. Paintless dent removal is also faster than conventional body shop methods and most repairs can be finished in a couple of hours. The technique is relatively new to Australia but has been used by European car manufacturers like Mercedes Benz and BMW for more than 20 years. Geelong manager Gary LeGuern says Aus Dent saves time and money. Aus Dent Geelong offers free quotes and a quality guarantee. Aus Dent is at 3/100 Barwon Terrace, South Geelong. Phone 5223 1128 or 0414 638 749 or visit the Aus Dent website at ausdent.com.au.

TYRE CENTRE 175/70R13

ally Motors is not only a Geelong institution since 1971, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a VACC accredited workshop. Rally Motorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Jay Beck says the accreditation means the business can service vehicles covered under factory new-car warranties without voiding them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve invested lot of money in top equipment so we can offer the same services as a dealership but at a better price,â&#x20AC;? Mr Beck explains. Rally Motors also offers a full-time four-wheeldrive service centre with three experienced off-road vehicle mechanics. Stocking a huge range of 4WD accessories and drive parts, Rally Motors is the place to check with before any off-road adventure for full servicing, preroad trip preparation, touring set-ups and advice. The workshop provides a courtesy car service or as well as a drop-off and pick-up runs for customers. Rally Motors is the workshop to which owners of expensive performance and vintage cars entrust their vehicles, so family sedans are in good hands. Senior mechanic Doug Edwards was recently entrusted with a $1 million early-model left-hand drive Corvette, one of only four left in the world. From log book service, fleet management, brakes, tyres, exhaust, air-conditioning, auto electrical, steering, clutch replacement, change over engines, transmission and more, Rally Motors is Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s complete auto mechanic. Based in the heart of Geelong, Rally Motors serves the Surf Coast, Bellarine Peninsula, Colac, Winchelsea and western districts. Customers can phone Jay at Rally Motors on 5222 1777, visit 36 Mercer St, Geelong, or check www.rallymotors.com.au for more information.

Trout and salmon outstanding for anglers ANGLERS enjoyed outstanding opportunities in fresh and saltwater over the past week. Trout were taken on lures at Derrinallum’s Deep Lake but bait anglers recorded the best results, clearly due to the low water levels. Powerbait was number one but fish were also taken on mudeye and worms. Lure fishing was best early in the mornings, generally before conditions became too bright, with shallow-running bibbed patterns such as Rapala X Raps or Dorados. Lismore’s Lake Tooliorook was also productive when fished with Powerbait, especially on overcast days. Trolling accounted for trout in the deeper areas of the lake. Lake Elingamite, near Cobden, produced redfin better than 1.5kg along with trout of a similar weight. Mudeye fished under a float and slowly trolled bibbed lures were successful. Shaun Bayer fished Lake Bullen Merri twice, with a downrigger set at 20m accounting for every fish caught. Most were small rainbows, with Shaun catching and releasing over 20. Troy West found plenty of trout and redfin during a threeday stint at Lake Fyans. The best fishing was landbased with a variety of bibbed lures. Daniel Johnson fished Leigh River with lures for a number of small redfin and two brown trout just over 1kg each. Ned Jacoby fished Moorabool River near Mount Edgerton, catching reasonable numbers of small brown trout on black and copper Celta lures. Saltwater anglers found quality fish, with salmon in big numbers from the rocks between Lorne and Wye River on lure.

On the bite BRIAN LONG The salmon fishing only continue to improve in coming weeks. Fairhaven Beach also produced salmon but only the high tides early in the mornings. Stephen Hobbs fished Artillery Rocks where he took a salmon on each lure cast in a two-hour session, with most fish over 1kg. Big kingfish were difficult to catch but smaller school fish were available. Bruce Wallace averaged three a trip using surface poppers just inside The Rip, with most fish around 70cm. Noel Potter was also among the action casting poppers at salmon busting up the surface. Salmon rarely hit Noel’s big popper but the kingfish swimming among them were willing. Paul Pyle fished in 18m off St Leonards where he caught four under-size gummy shark until a reel screamed with something clearly larger. The culprit was a gummy that pulled the scales down to 17.8kg cleaned. Aidan Jarosinski also found a gummy in the same area but had to fish through the many local banjo sharks. Swan Bay’s entrance remained consistent for a variety of species. Whiting, squid and garfish dominated but quality flathead were also taken. Snapper around 2kg were also caught just inside the bay after

Aidan Jarosinski with one of his gummy sharks from St Leonards. dark along the channel edge during the run-off from high tide. Tyson Moore fished in 10m off Portarlington to find any number of flathead while using soft plastics on a dropshot rig. Tyson returned with 20 fish after releasing a similar amount. Martin Fitzgerald also found numbers of flathead on soft plastics while drifting inside the channel line out from Clifton Springs. His best measured 51cms, while Martin also took two snapper around 1.5kg. Salmon were also taken in the bay while working bait fish to the surface near Point Henry, Hermsley and the quarries. Anglers casting small, metal baitfish-profile lures into the action from a

distance have had the best results. Anyone still seeking a big snapper should put in a few hours on the inner-harbour, with fish better than 5kg caught on the mud directly out from Corio Quay during the first two hours of the runoff from high tide. The season is growing late for pike but numbers were still taken in the bay, with North Shore rocks ideal on evening low tides. Estuary anglers caught bream on fresh bait, with bass yabby, shrimp, crab or sandworm preferred.

GCA’s top two repeat GEELONG’S topsy turvy premier cricket season lurched to a halt last Saturday when the Cats lost to Frankston Penninsula in their qualifying final. The Cats won the toss and elected to bowl first, a decision their bowlers backed up by dismissing their hosts for just 133. In reply, Liam Buchanan stood tall at the top of the order with 45 in just under two hours but teammates crumbled around him for the Cats to finish all out for a disappointing 91. The Cats fared no better in the second winnings, chasing over 200 but finishing all out for 101. The seconds and fourths went through to the next stage, so they can look forward to plenty of supports from the Cats in the next two weeks. The same teams as last year will contest Geelong Cricket Association’s grand finals in the top two divisions. Grovedale romped into the decider by destroying a disappointing South Barwon at Stinton Oval. Tigers Englishmen Chris Young and Alex Romaniw set up the win by decimating the Swans batting, with South Barwon all out for just 86. Toby Hogg then knocked up an undefeated half century for Grovedale to record a seven-wicket win. The Tigers will take on reigning premier Geelong West after it disposed of East Belmont at the semifinal stage for the third year in a row. Sam Loftus top scored with 59 in the Rams’ first day total of 9/233, while Nick Hill smashed 53. On Sunday Josh Vrboski removed both East Belmont openers before Jarran Cooke tore through the middle order. All appeared lost for East until Ben

Local Cricket JIM TIMBERLAKE Spencer bludgeoned his way to 99 until he was caught with the score at 203, allowing West to escape from jail. This weekend’s match at Stinton Oval looks like a classic. Geelong West has enjoyed two tight wins but Grovedale’s finals form has been impeccable and should be enough for the Tigers to win. In division two, Geelong City will look to reverse last year’s result when it plays St Alban’s Breakwater at Grinter Reserve. Both teams have enjoyed solid finals series, although Geelong City’s win over Waurn Ponds last week was ominous. The Sharks bowled first and managed to restrict Waurn Ponds to just 44 runs from 55 overs, which they reached in just 14 overs of their own. St Albans Breakwater batted first against Murgheboluc and knocked up 5/259. The Frogs fought it out on Sunday, batting for 68 overs, but were eventually dismissed for 170. St Albans Breakwater would love going back to back but Geelong City will stop at nothing to win. Division three’s finals series of upsets concludes with Meredith playing Lethbridge at Winchelsea Reserve. Lethbridge has been consistent all season but Meredith’s star-studded line up should be too good.
