City of Greater Geelong urges rethink at Grovedale station
PARKING PLEASE BY JAMES TAYLOR
THE City of Greater Geelong is continuing to lobby for more car parks at the coming Grovedale railway station, insisting the planned number will be “totally inadequate” from the station’s first day of operation. Last week, the City of Greater Geelong unanimously passed Cr Andy Richards’ notice of motion urging the state government to provide at least 400 car parks and the provision of bus services to
and from the Waurn Ponds station from day one. The council will write to the state government and opposition, South Barwon MP Andrew Katos, and all five Members for Western Victoria in the upper house. Cr Richards criticised the number of parks when $16.5 million for the station was included in the state budget, and said last week there would only be ample parking when the station was fully finished.
“The initial parking provision is totally inadequate and will result in Waurn Ponds streets becoming clogged with traffic. “Residents will have trouble getting out of their driveway and down their streets.” He said the 400 car parks at Marshall Station were full well before the end of peak travel time each morning, with commuters parking outside the marked bays and in surrounding streets. “Given the wide nature of
Marshalltown Road, and the narrow nature of the suburban streets around the new Waurn Ponds station, the problem of parking in suburban streets will be far worse.” He suggested either 400 car parks on the northern side, or car parks on the southern side with infrastructure to allow people to cross, as well as bus services to keep traffic levels down. IN OTHER Armstrong Creek news, the town centre precinct structure plan (PSP) for the growth area will go out for
public comment tomorrow. Cr Rod Macdonald said the PSP set aside land for a library, an indoor sports stadium, an indoor aquatic centre, a cultural and arts apace, community meeting spaces, youth facilities, maternal and child health services, day care facilities and kindergarten facilities. He said the town centre aimed to provide about 5,460 new jobs. The PSP also formally sets aside land for a future rail line from Geelong to Torquay.

An accident waiting to happen BY DEAN WEBSTER
CONCERNED parents fearing for the lives of their children want action to improve safety at the Fischer Street bus stop near the Lochard Drive shops. Fischer Street is quickly becoming a thoroughfare because of increased development in Torquay North and the fact there is no speed reduction measures in that area. Concerned parent Michelle Carroll said the fact that there isn’t a crossing anywhere on Fischer Street for children to cross safely is insane. “Considering both parents and children are
encouraged to either walk or ride to school, why aren’t there any safe routes? On any given day, you can see children riding or walking up to the busiest roundabout in the town at Darian Road, and chancing their fate with crossing both Darian Road and Fischer Street,” she said. “I sit in my car and watch parents doing u-turns right in front of the bus stop, tradies flying up and down the street and generally cars speeding. All this is going on as children are trying to cross from one side of the road to the other. I feel very strongly about my concerns, I have seen a little girl almost get
hit, and with the tragic accident in Corio recently, I feel we need to make sure that the children of this community are cared for and protected.” Previous Lochard Drive convenience store owner Wayne Porter said he used to cringe every time a bus pulled up. “I was dreading the day I would see a child get run over, I would look out my window at the end of the school day and get awful feelings seeing children dodging cars,” he said. Surf Coast Shire director of infrastructure Sunil Bhalla said the council has reviewed traffic control
measures around the shops and found that the traffic and pedestrian volumes do not meet VicRoads requirements for a controlled pedestrian refuge. “Council will continue to review the area, particularly once Fischer Street connects through to South Beach Road which may result in increased traffic volumes,” he said. As an interim measure, Cr Rose Hodge has requested that council’s mobile electronic speed management sign be placed near the Lochard Drive and Fischer Street intersection which will warn motorists to slow down – to be in place this week.
Council shines a light on Torquay intersection BY JAMES TAYLOR THE Surf Coast Shire has thrown its weight behind efforts to fix a crash-prone intersection in Torquay. Last week, the council unanimously voted to write to Transport Minister Terry Mulder, urging him to allocate funds for traffic lights at the corner of Surf Coast Highway and Beach Road. As reported in the Surf Coast Times on May 21, there have been two crashes at the intersection in the space of three weeks. Cr Brian McKiterick, who moved the notice of motion, said there had been five recorded casualty crashes at the intersection – which carries about 3,900 vehicles a day – between July 2007 and June 2012. He said the figures did not include the many unreported accidents, such as a crash involving Geelong football legend Gary Ablett Sr six years ago. Cr McKiterick, who is also a sergeant with the Torquay police, said the four-lane Surf Coast Highway was under the management of VicRoads and the council could not simply ask for the
lights to be built. “Unfortunately, (the VicRoads process is) it’s when someone dies, there will be action. Or it’s when someone pays for it. Hopefully this will be another mechanism towards that.” Cr Rose Hodge supported the motion, and revealed her nephew’s car was one of the three vehicles involved in the April 30 accident. “I’m very grateful his young child wasn’t in the car at the time, so it’s become personal to me.” Surf Coast Shire director of infrastructure Sunil Bhalla said installing the lights would cost between $1 million and $1.2 million VicRoads regional director William Tieppo said factors that would determine the need for traffic lights included traffic volume, safety, access and pedestrian safety. “VicRoads has investigated the need to install traffic signals at the intersection. In the context of these investigations, a proposal to install traffic signals at Beach Road will be considered in a future roads program.”

Fishers fight against marine parks BY JAMES TAYLOR REX Hunt has lent his voice to a campaign by recreational fishers during a public rally in Torquay on Saturday. The fishing icon and media personality was the main attraction at the Keep Australia Fishing rally, held at the Torquay Angling Club. The national campaign is protesting against legislation to create a national network of marine parks, which will come into effect in July of next year. Keep Australia Fishing argues the regulations will lock recreational fishers out of more than 1.3 million square kilometres of Australian seas and will potentially ban fishing in all land-based national parks. Saturday’s rally was also attended by Shadow Minister for Climate Action, Environment and Heritage Greg Hunt, Shadow Parliamentary Secretary for Fisheries and Forestry Senator Richard Colbeck and Liberal candidate for Corangamite Sarah Henderson. Ms Henderson said the federal government had failed to recognise the impact the marine parks would have on recreational fishing. “It is the recreational fishing community which understands and cares for the marine environment. “Marine parks can work – but not when they are forced on communities and there are question marks over whether they have been developed on science or politics.” She said the Coalition was committed to introducing a disallowance motion in Parliament, and would conduct a review of the marine parks if elected. Federal Environment Minister Tony Burke said the Coalition was being deliberately misleading on the issue, as the vast majority of the

news 05 Council wants answers on Anglesea emissions Tuesday 4 June 2013
BY JAMES TAYLOR SURF Coast Shire has challenged the state government and the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) to explain why emissions from Anglesea’s coal fired power station are allowed to be more than twice as high as international standards. At last week’s meeting, councillors passed a notice of motion seeking an explanation as to why Victoria’s air quality policies were more lenient than those suggested by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). The motion also seeks confirmation that there are adequate resources to enable the determination and enforcement of emission standards at the
Alcoa-run station. The EPA’s national standard for sulphur dioxide emissions is peak hourly ambient concentrations of 200 parts per billion, while the USEPA standard is only 75 parts per billion. Alcoa has consistently said the power station’s air emissions are safe for Anglesea residents. Cr Margot Smith, who moved the motion, said Alcoa was acting legally. “This is not about Alcoa not being a good community citizen, this is about the standards that apply to them. “I don’t want to be an alarmist, but the EPA has a responsibility to explain why 200 parts per billion is acceptable here. “I think the community deserves an answer to
that question.” Cr Eve Fisher said the WHO and USEPA had found there was no safe level of exposure to sulphur dioxide emissions. “I’m wondering why we’re more than 100 per cent higher.” An EPA spokeswoman said the Australian and US standards could not be directly compared as they were calculated using different measures. “The national standards are currently under review and EPA is contributing and supporting the review. “The first pollutant being reviewed is particulate matter up to 2.5 micrometers in size (PM2.5). “The time frame for the other pollutants such as sulphur dioxide has not been finalised.”

Pool campaigners hit a snag
Surf Coast Aquatic Leisure Centre Action Group members at their sausage sizzle on the weekend. Photo: MEL WRIGHT
THE campaign for a community pool for Torquay was thrust back into the spotlight on the weekend with a barbeque in front of Woolworths in Torquay. Surf Coast Aquatic Leisure Centre Action Group spokesperson Emma Jackman said the barbeque signalled a revival for the group which seeks to show strong community support for a pool in Torquay. “This campaign has been running for decades in Torquay,” Ms Jackman said. “A committee was formed in 1971 to investigate the possibility of building a swimming pool in Torquay, and we still don’t have one. Our group is so passionate about this issue we really want a community voice behind the push for a pool in Torquay.” On Saturday morning, the group collected signatures for another petition. “We want as many signatures as possible so we can show all levels of government that there is
strong community support for this vital piece of infrastructure that everyone can use.” Ms Jackman said the pool would not just be of use to young families but would have health benefits for the whole community including the elderly. “From the health perspective there’s a big push from our group. “We want a community aquatic centre that’s easily accessible. It would be another positive aspect for our community.” Last year, the previous Surf Coast Shire council unanimously passed a motion to reserve land for a future pool in the new Torquay Sports and Civic Precinct. Tens of millions of dollars of funding is required if the pool is to be built. Head to facebook.com/groups/SCALCAG and visit the group facebook page.

Geelong chosen for disability HQ BY JAMES TAYLOR THE selection of Geelong for the headquarters of DisabilityCare Australia has been hailed as a critical boost for healthcare and jobs in the Geelong region. Yesterday, the federal and state governments jointly announced the head office of the national disability insurance agency would be built in Geelong. It will create about 300 new jobs once DisabilityCare is fully rolled out from 2019-20 in addition to the 120 jobs already announced for the agency’s Geelong regional office, which will open
in time for the Barwon region launch next month. Corangamite Federal MP Darren Cheeseman said the announcement would create hundreds of highpaid professional jobs in the region. “Geelong, the headquarters of the Transport Accident Commission, will now also be the national headquarters of DisabilityCare Australia and responsible for the national rollout of disability care. “This is great news for everyone in Geelong and surrounds. “Considering the challenges in the manufacturing sector, these jobs are very welcome.”
Prime Minister Julia Gillard said Geelong was ideally suited to support the head office functions of such an important agency. “The city has a history of driving innovation in disability, health and community services through the collaboration of its local council, local health services and locally based disability service agencies.” The City of Greater Geelong had been lobbying for months to host the headquarters, and the federal government decided on Geelong after the state government offered $25 million toward the costs of
relocation and establishment for the head office. The state government has also agreed to fund works to significantly improve the accessibility of the Geelong train station. DisabilityCare Australia will immediately start investigating location options, with a view to placing some staff in Geelong from January next year. When fully rolled out, the scheme will provide support for about 460,000 people who have a significant and permanent disability that affects their communication, mobility, self-care or selfmanagement.
Henderson backs GOR campaign BY JAMES TAYLOR LIBERAL candidate for Corangamite Sarah Henderson has backed the push for critical upgrades to the Great Ocean Road but has not promised financial support for the works. On Friday, Ms Henderson attended a briefing on the Oh My Great Ocean Road campaign at the Surf Coast Shire’s Torquay office with shire mayor Libby Coker, G21 Geelong Region Alliance chairman Ed Coppe and Geelong Otway Tourism executive director Roger Grant. G21’s OMGreat Ocean Road campaign is seeking at least $10 million a year over five years from the state and federal governments to improve the road. Neither the state nor federal governments have committed funding toward the upgrades. Asked if she was prepared to campaign on the issue at the election, Ms Henderson said she was
not in a position to commit the $25 million in federal funding but would continue fighting hard for improvements to the road. She said substantial investment in the Great Ocean Road was vital for tourism, the local economy and jobs. “Upgrading the Great Ocean Road will create an additional 212 additional jobs. “This translates to $18.6 million in wages and salaries across the G21 region. “The opportunities for jobs are enormous.” Cr Coker said she welcomed Ms Henderson’s backing for the campaign and she looked forward to bipartisan support for the works. Mr Grant said the Great Ocean Road drew about 60 per cent of all international visitors to Melbourne. “The road celebrated its 81st birthday this year, and some of the works really haven’t altered it that much.”

Greens want better public bus services BY JAMES TAYLOR BETTER coordinated and more frequent bus services in Geelong and the Surf Coast would stop commuters from being reliant on their cars, according to the Greens. Victorian Greens leader Greg Barber and Greens candidate for Corangamite Lloyd Davies spent Friday riding the buses around Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula to take a first-hand look at how the services could be improved. The Greens have suggested four measures for public transport: • extend all train services to Marshall station and faster construction of the Grovedale station • add extra bus services so every train is met by a bus to and from the Surf Coast and Bellarine • extend the hours of key routes into the evenings and all day on weekends • sort out some of the “spaghetti” routes to make travel more direct and easier to know which bus
is going where. Speaking to the Surf Coast Times and Bellarine Times at Marshall Station while waiting for a bus to Ocean Grove, Mr Barber said the existing response to higher patronage at train stations was demand for more car parks, which were expensive to construct. “It really wouldn’t cost much for a better bus service – just a few more buses.” He said 70 per cent of commuters at train stations in the Canadian city of Toronto arrived there by bus, while the figure for Melbourne’s stations would be closer to seven per cent. As well as building the Grovedale station faster, Mr Barber also wants coordinated services to and from the station from its first day of operation. He said V/Line already had a plan, subject to funding, about expanding train services to Marshall and Grovedale. “What’s not in the plan is the issue of integrating buses to the service.”

Questions via Our Say not political hearsay .BY JAMES TAYLOR THE two main contenders for the federal seat of Corangamite will be put to the test with three questions decided by the public. On May 6, independent website Our Say opened a page where people can post or vote for a question for incumbent Labor MP Darren Cheeseman and Liberal candidate Sarah Henderson as part of its Citizens’ Agenda campaign. After voting closes on August 26, the three
most popular questions will be directly answered by the candidates in a town hall-style event in the electorate. As of Friday, there were 60 votes for the leading question, regarding introducing roadside mail delivery to Teesdale. Kayne Richen’s question says roadside mail delivery was a basic service that everyone had. “Under Labor, Teesdale will have the NBN in 2016 – great for online shopping, except for the drive to get your shopping! Roadside mail delivery
must come before fibre!” The next most popular question, from Judy Cameron – Will you support the implementation of the Gonksi reforms to restore our public education to world-class standards? – attracted 54 votes. In third place is a question from the Geelong Environment Council, which asks about the protection of the environment from what they call the state government’s “developments that destroy” philosophy, especially in the Great Otway National Park and significant public reserves of
south west Victoria. Everyone who takes part in the Citizens’ Agenda can cast seven votes, which can be used entirely on one question or on multiple questions. Our Say spokeswoman Amelia Kemister said they would like all political parties in Corangamite to participate. “We are in the process of contacting candidates as they are pre-selected in their particular seats.” Head to oursay.org/electorate-of-corangamite to post a question or vote for one.

For the information of our entire community, I would like to share the news that the release of the Draft Point Grey Precinct Plan has been delayed. It was previously hoped that the draft plan would be released in May/June 2013 and unfortunately it is now expected to be released for consultation in late August 2013. GORCC have recognized how important the precinct and planning process is to the wider Lorne community and apologized to the Community Reference Group for the inconvenience this has caused. As six of the Committee for Lorne (CfL) executive team nominated their time and commitment to the planning process, we were the ﬁrst to recognize that it was never going to be an easy task to get the majority of what all stakeholders wanted as the outcome. But in my mind one very big question has begun to emerge: will the outcome be dictated by the Department of Sustainably and Environment through the Great Ocean Road Coast Committee or will the people of Lorne be listened to? I, like the entire Lorne community, are hoping for the latter and if the support provided by our local resident and federal MP the Hon. Mr Terry Mulder is any indication, so is he. Many of you will recall that at our CfL April luncheon, Mr Mulder, in addressing the 110+ crowd, reported that his Government was looking for communities to be involved in creating their own visions and plans to assist Government deliver what the people want! This project has our 1046 permanent Lorne residents plus the thousands of our non-resident property owners sitting on the edge of their chair, patiently awaiting the outcome! Short and sweet this week as I don’t want our concerns clouded by any other issues!!
MOVING TO LORNE
Amanda’s Story My husband Chris has been coming to Lorne with his family for many years, and it wasn’t long before he introduced me (Amanda) to the most beautiful town in Victoria. When discussions began around starting a family, questions on how to raise the kids (you know, like we were raised!), and what was most important became central to deciding on where to live. We searched from Victoria to Northern W NSW for a smaller community where kids could safely walk to school, be near water but not be too far from a city or airport to allow for easy access to family. W We are also very aware of how important health is to your ability to enjoy life, and instead of waiting until retirement to be in the sort of environment where you can really enjoy it, we wanted to partake in the great outdoors as much as possible throughout life. So after all the searching, we found ourselves constantly coming back to Lorne – there is just nowhere like it for its combination of bush and surf, its accessibility to Melbourne and its community feel. So we sold up in Melbourne and headed down the coast to Lorne. Chris, who owns and runs Fitline, was able to change his work practices so that he could work from home 3 days a week (technology is a wonderful enabler) and spend 2 days in Melbourne, while I spent the ﬁrst 12 months raising little Chase. In those 12 months, I helped out on the Lorne Sculpture Committee, as well as meeting a bunch of new mums in town and learning more about the community. Daily walks on the beach, bush walks and getting to know like minded people over wine, all seem like things you dream of or wish for but aren’t
able to actually do – amazingly it is actually a reality. After 12 months, it was time for me to head back to work. W Wondering how I was going to ﬁnd work, it wasn’t long before I landed a marketing role in Geelong. So each day I get to drive to Geelong along the Great Ocean Road watching the sun come up over the ocean. Not a trafﬁc light to be seen, the drive is neither arduous nor tiring, the only hazard being the occasional kangaroo and tourist driver. Chase also occasionally attends day care (of which availability is not a problem down this way!), so not only does he have the chance to play in the sand and surf, but he also has access to qualiﬁed educators and the chance to make loads of friends. With a small nipper in tow, the opportunity to get involved with this community will only continue to grow. There are dozens of committees to get involved with, and events that are always on the look out for volunteers. From arts events to sporting events, Lorne has such an array of activities, that there is literally something for everyone. The hardest part is having the time to get involved with all the things you want to. For anyone out there that has ever had the same thought as us, yes it is possible, you can still have a career, live at the beach and raise a family in a community where kids are safe and people look out for each other. There are so many people that hear where we live and immediately sigh and lament at how lucky we are to live in Lorne. They are right of course, but, we are big believers in making your own luck. AMANDA CHASE
COMMUNITY PROFILE I have lived in Lorne for the past 13 years and have visited for over 30 years, since I was a young boy, and have seen Lorne grow during this time. In the past I’ve been involved in the Lorne Aquatic Pool Committee to try to get funding for a heated pool for the community and I’m currently a sponsor for the Lorne Football & Netball Club. I have also been a parent helper in the Auskick program as I have two beautiful boys, Sam and Ray, who attended the local kindergarten and are now at Lorne’s primary school. At the age of 18 I started my working career as a manual labourer and eventually moved to carpentry where I completed an apprenticeship. I then had a change of career and became a Pizza Chef at Falls Creek. At around the age of 30 I decided to return to the carpentry business. It was at this I time decided to move to Lorne permanently. It was also when I became a registered builder as an opportunity was presented to me by another local who was looking to build a home. This inspired me to complete the necessary paperwork to obtain my building registration so I could complete this friend’s dream. The thing I am most proud of with my GD Construction business, is the quality of workmanship. I also feel very lucky to be able to have the chance to build the type of house that I dream to build, and to be able to work in such an amazing location as Lorne. The things I love most about Lorne are its natural beauty which blows me away on a daily basis and that we have such a great community. I love the country living with a cool attitude, not to mention the great coffee culture where as locals we all connect!

Mixed support for constitutional campaign BY JAMES TAYLOR OPINION is divided among Surf Coast Shire councillors over whether the council should financially support a push for local government to be recognised in the constitution. It has been proposed voters at the federal election will also decide on a referendum that will allow the federal government to provide funding directly to local councils. The Municipal Association of Victoria has backed the change, and asked the shire in April to contribute a
voluntary levy of $13,440 towards a campaign by the Australian Local Government Association (ALGA). At last weekâ€™s meeting in Aireys Inlet, the council resolved to only give $5,000 to the ALGA but some councillors questioned the merit of supporting the campaign at all. Cr Brian McKiterick moved the amendment for the lower contribution, and said it was a more appropriate figure. â€œIn a democratic society, we should be able to give the best possible information about this issue.â€? Cr Rose Hodge said she had no doubt some councils would not contribute but the campaign
should be supported. â€œI hope everyone in the gallery of voting age votes â€˜yesâ€™.â€? Councillors Rod Nockles, Heather Wellington and Clive Goldsworthy voted against the motion. Cr Wellington said there had been 44 attempts to make constitutional amendments but only eight had succeeded. â€œThereâ€™s no justification for spending ratepayersâ€™ money on something thatâ€™s not going to get over the line.â€? After the meeting, Cr Nockles said he had a
number of concerns, including that the pro-reform campaign was not properly balanced. â€œIâ€™m not convinced by a lot of the arguments that it (recognising local government) is necessary at all.â€? He said he would instead prefer money to be spent on clearly delineating the responsibilities of federal, state and local governments. City of Greater Geelong general manager of corporate services Jeff Wall said the MAV had asked the council for $79,286, which would be considered at the council meeting on June 11.
Watchers wait for whale season NATIONAL Whale Day has passed, and Southern Right Whales are expected to be seen in large numbers along Victoriaâ€™s south west coast in the coming weeks. There have been sporadic but confirmed sightings from Port Phillip Bay, Jan Juc, Portland and Logans Beach at Warrnambool already this month, but it is still too early to declare the whales have arrived for the season. Every year, the whales move from the cooler sub-Antarctic regions to the warmer waters of the southern Australian coast to give birth and nurse young from June to October. Department of Environment and Primary Industries senior biodiversity officer Mandy Watson said the whales could stay for as long as four to five months before returning south again. â€œPreparations have been made to make the most of the whalesâ€™ visit, with 22 volunteers from Deakin University completing their training as part of the Warrnambool Whale Watch program.â€? The start of whale monitoring coincides with National Whale Day, which was marked on June 1.
Ms Watson said the day celebrated the whales and dolphins that migrated to our coastlines annually and Australiaâ€™s position as a world leader in whale conservation. â€œWeâ€™re very lucky to receive these rare visitors each year and have the opportunity to see them in their natural setting. To ensure visitors can enjoy the views without disturbing the whales, strict regulations are in place.â€? All boats are banned from Logans Beach between June 1-October 31. Normal whale watching guidelines apply outside the exclusion area â€“ jetskis may not come closer than 300 metres, boats may not get closer than 200 metres, and no vessels may come between a whale and a calf. Commercial tour vessels operating under a permit may approach no closer than 100 metres, while aircraft may not be flown lower than 300 metres. To report whales and dolphins in distress, phone the whale and dolphin emergency hotline on 1300 136 017. Southern Right Whales off the coast near Lorne in July last year.

Taking pressure off families, singles and pensioners Under a Coalition Government, Labor’s carbon tax compensation will become a genuine tax cut and a genuine pension increase. That’s because a Coalition government will abolish the carbon tax. Families and pensioners will receive these tax cuts and pension increases which commenced on 1 July last year without being hit by Labor’s damaging carbon tax. The Coalition will also retain the increase in the taxfree threshold to $18,200. If elected, we will make it easier for families and at the same time repair the budget and build a strong economy.

Party seeks the animal justice vote BY JAMES TAYLOR THE Animal Justice Party (AJP) is looking for support from voters in the Geelong region who are disenchanted by the animal welfare policies of the major parties. About a dozen people attended an information session held by the New South Wales-based party at the Spring Creek Community House on Thursday, and a meeting was held with Victorian candidate Bruce Poon in Torquay on Friday. The AJP is campaigning on a platform of promoting and protecting the interests and capabilities of animals by providing a dedicated voice for them in Australia’s political system, and is
looking for members and volunteers. Western region coordinator Andy Meddick said the party was most known for its stance against live export but it would view other issues “through the same framework of respect and compassion”. “We see cruel practice not just in how the animals are raised, but in the whole process.” He said the group would not interfere with animal welfare organisations but was seeking a political solution to the issues. “Don Chipp said the Democrats were there to ‘keep the bastards honest’, and this is what this is all about. You can’t influence policy and decision without actually being there.” He said the party needed at least 4 per cent of the
vote – which equated to 14,403 people in western Victoria – to qualify for federal funding. At $2.47 per vote, 4 per cent across Victoria would result in $370,000 of funding, which Mr Meddick said would be used as a platform to further spread the party’s message. “We believe there are certainly people out there who are disenfranchised by the major parties. “Corangamite’s only held by 400 votes anyway – there are a lot of disenchanted voters out there. “If we don’t do something, nothing will change. We can at least have a go.” Andy Meddick speaks at Thursday’s information session. Photo: JAMES TAYLOR
“Better schools mean better opportunities for my children.” “Education is important to my children’s future. I want my kids to have the best opportunities possible. The National Plan for School Improvement will help make this happen.”
Paula - Mother
The National Plan for School Improvement aims to take Australian schools into the top ﬁve countries in the world by 2025. The plan responds to the ﬁrst comprehensive review of how schools are funded in almost 40 years. Why? • Australia’s international results have dropped from 2nd to 7th in reading and 5th to 13th in maths over the last decade • By Year 9, disadvantaged students are over two years behind their peers • The number of high performing students has dropped by 5% in reading literacy over the last decade How? • Ongoing teacher training • A national curriculum • Fairer funding for Australian school students When? • The National Plan for School Improvement is scheduled to begin in 2014 For more information visit australia.gov.au/betterschools or call 13 17 64
Gun club asks for more time BY JAMES TAYLOR THE Winchelsea Gun Club has asked for an extension to its tenancy at Winchelsea Common as it tries to find a new home. The common was closed to its users in February by the Surf Coast Shire so it could carry out a risk assessment into the high levels of lead shot in the area. The club has been working with the shire for some time to find a new home, and has submitted a planning application for a site in Prices Lane, Ombersley. Last week, Winchelsea Gun Club president Robert Brown submitted a letter and 15-page petition to the council, asking to operate on the common for an extra 12 months to allow it “sufficient time to properly explore alternate locations”. In his letter, Mr Brown said the petition showed the value the gun club had to residents of Winchelsea and district as part of the town’s sporting fabric. “I trust all councillors will understand the club’s future is at stake, and urgent action is required now to prevent loss of membership and revenue to continue, or to press on with the planning application.” He said it was unlikely the council would permit the club to use lead shot and clay targets at Prices Lane. He suggested a switch to steel shot and biodegradable targets, which would be “unknown territory” for most members. “As far as is known, only one club in Victoria has ever been required to go down that path. “It is believed, therefore, it is absolutely essential that trial events be conducted by our club to gauge the reaction of members to such a radical change.” The council will prepare a report on the club’s request to be considered at its June 25 meeting.

REFUGEE Week is approaching on June 16-22 with the “Restoring of Hope” message and a Surf Coast Shire councillor is asking the community to get behind a local group. Councillor Rose Hodge is asking the community to support Surf Coast Rural Australians for Refugees (RAR), which has a support base of 450 members, and has been invited by Melbourne’s Asylum Seekers Research Centre and Geelong’s Diversitat to donate warm blankets and jumpers for detainees who are being released across regional areas. “The Surf Coast Shire is a Welcome Refugee Zone and people throughout the shire who would like to donate can drop off any blankets or warm clothing to the Surf Coast Shire offices where they will be collected,” Cr Hodge said. “These items would then be distributed to refugees in need, especially coming into the depths of winter where they would be greatly appreciated.” Dr Barry Butcher from the Surf Coast Rural Australians for Refugees said that they have been raising funds to support worthy initiatives such as this. “When RAR began around 10 years ago we began
a fundraising project making chutney’s and kasundi using Afghan recipes and selling them around the local Surf Coast Sunday markets,” he said. “In Torquay, we have raised around $40,000 for refugee support from this source, now there is likely to be a requirement for more immediate assistance as asylum seekers become increasingly visible in the community, and at the moment there is a real need for warm clothing and bedding.” Both Cr Hodge and Dr Butcher said that around the Surf Coast there are some great success stories emerging from earlier refugee arrivals, particularly among the younger members of families who are making their mark via academic and sporting achievement. “People need to know that this issue of asylum seekers is not a negative story for Australia regardless of what politicians and the media often suggest, these are often people with skilled training and experience in professional areas where Australia is currently lacking,” they said. Torquay P-6 College is celebrating Refugee Week and has an excellent display in the school library and is inviting all families to drop in to share it with their children.

Garden project spreads its wings BY JAMES TAYLOR THE vegetable garden at Anglesea Primary School is looking even better thanks to a community arts project. The six-month Butterfly Project has created a butterfly-themed fence and gates around the garden, and was officially launched at the school yesterday afternoon. Anglesea Primary School’s vegie garden group was started six years ago
by parent Alison Rau. The program has now grown to include pupils visiting the garden once a week for activities including composting lunch scraps and building no dig garden beds to harvesting and cooking with produce. The site was looking a little wilted after a school and garden relocation last year, and parent and local artist Cinnamon Stephens suggested the Butterfly Project to beautify the area. In the project, every pupil in the school was involved in designing and creating nearly 100 butterfly templates, with the help of community groups including the Men’s Shed, Angair, Anglesea Kindergarten and Blue Cross Aged Care. Stephens then transferred the templates to sheet metal and created the artwork that now adorns the garden fence and gates. The project was completed with a $1,000 grant from Surf Coast Shire’s small community grants program.

Wild landscapes put on show BY TIFFANY PILCHER A WIDE range of stunning landscape paintings by accomplished Aireys Inlet artist Donald Ramsay will be featured at Seaview Gallery in Queenscliff throughout the month of June. His paintings show scenes of sweeping plains, peaceful waterways and scrub-covered mountains from all over Australia in the striking colours that are unique to the natural Australian environment. A number of the pieces were painted on location in Western Australia’s remote Kimberley region, where Mr Ramsay found the remoteness and dramatic scenery a source of great inspiration. “I’m mainly inspired by the wilderness landscapes of Australia and it’s amazing up there. “I try to work on location – just find a beautiful spot and work in complete isolation and it’s the perfect place for that. “My smaller works are usually done that way and the larger ones are created back in the studio.” Seaview Gallery director Colleen Kenwood said she was immediately

enthralled with Mr Ramsay’s work and was pleased to have the opportunity to show off his quality paintings. Much of Mr Ramsay’s work is represented in public and private collections around Australia and he regularly exhibits in Sydney and Melbourne.

Aquatic survivors armed with safety skills BY ALI DEANE LOCAL primary school students will be heading to the beach armed with new aquatic skills and surf awareness thanks to an innovative program. Grades 5 and 6 from Bellbrae Primary School and Torquay P-6 College undertook the TrainupNow Aquatic Survivor program training at Torquay beach in February, and last week were presented with their certificates of completion. The program, created by surf life saving experts and trainers Kelvin Benson and David Nankervis, saw students learn about surf awareness, beach safety, swimming in the surf, CPR, patient assessment and first aid on the beach, in the
classroom and in the water. Bellbrae primary grade 5/6 teacher Luke O’Meara said the program was not only vital for those growing up in coastal communities, but would also be invaluable for people living in the city. “Our standard swimming program in the pool is for grade 3s and 4s. The aquatic survivor program is practical, really useful, and it’s great to offer them the opportunity for experiencing the open water. “They were engaged with different activities, looking at surf awareness, swimming, surfing, first aid and CPR. “We would like to think, should our students be put in a situation, they would be able to assist someone, or help themselves, if they were in trouble
at the beach. The implications are quite obvious.” According to the students, the program was both informative and fun. “The Aquatic Survivor program was a fun. It allowed us to learn how to stay alive in the water. I learnt how to treat injuries and do CPR. We also learnt the different types of waves and how they work,” Daniel said. “My favourite thing about the Aquatic Survivor program was learning about the sea. I learnt what the definition of a rip is and how waves form. I also enjoyed the first aid because we learnt about the body and how to perform CPR. I would love to do it again,” Georgia said. The Aquatic Survivor program by TrainupNow will return for local students in September.
Grade 6s Georgia and Zach were stoked that surfing was part of the Aquatic Survivor program.
Sign up for kindergarten places BY JAMES TAYLOR
Peppers The Sands Torquay last week hosted its first annual corporate golf day familiarisation, which was a free event. Business development manager Mark Day said “we aimed at attracting down the local Geelong/Surf Coast corporate market, and the day was a great success”. Here golfers are in buggies on their way to the tee at the start of the day.
PARENTS who want to enrol their children at kindergartens in Torquay, Jan Juc and Anglesea for next year have been encouraged to move quickly as the deadline for applications approaches. Surf Coast Shire operates a central enrolment process for all kindergartens in these areas, which allocates places at the Torquay Kindergarten, Jan Juc Pre-school, Torquay Montessori and Anglesea Kindergarten. As a result, parents only need enrol their children once if seeking a place at any of these centres. Surf Coast mayor Libby Coker said demand for kindergarten places
is expected to be strong again. “The central enrolment is the best way of helping ensure places get allocated fairly and helping local kindergartens through the administrative process of dealing with enrolments for the following year.” Enrolment applications close on July 19, and must be made by filling out the standard registration form available from the four kindergartens; the Torquay Children’s Services Hub at 27 Grossmans Road, Torquay; the shire offices at 1 Merrijig Drive, Torquay; or by downloading from the Surf Coast Shire website at surfcoast. vic.gov.au. Forms must include proof of age. To enrol in three-year-old kinder,
children must turn three years of age before April 30, 2014 for Jan Juc, Anglesea and Montessori kindergartens. To enrol in four-year-old kinder, children must have turned four before April 30, 2014 to be eligible for a fully-funded year. Information sessions for parents about the best time to enrol your child for three and four-year-old kindergarten, and tips for a smooth transition to kindergarten, will be held at the Torquay Children’s Services Hub, 27 Grossman Road, Torquay on June 17 between 1-3pm and June 18 between 7-9pm. For more information, phone the Torquay Children’s Services Hub on 5261 0549.

SUP at surf tours GREAT Ocean Road Surf Tours’ stand up paddle (SUP) star, Australian number four and four-time state champion Kristi Page is heading the multiaward winning learn-to-surf company’s latest venture. SUPs are becoming one of the fastest growing water sports around but it could also be one of the fastest growing dangers in the surf. Great Ocean Road Surf Tours owner Alistair Lawson explains. “As these boards are so big they can quite easily become a danger in the hands of those less experienced in the surf. That is why we feel every person wishing to take up this water sport should have a degree of surfing experience and also flat water experience before graduating into the waves.” Great Ocean Road Surf Tours are now running
private flat water lessons at Spring Creek which are designed to help teach people the basics of SUP and also more intermediate skills to help control your board in the surf. “As a long time SUP rider I feel this is a great opportunity to help people get the most out of their time, gain more confidence in the surf and also to stay safe,” Kristi Page said “It should be a must for all who want to join our sport and the private lessons are also a fantastic opportunity to gain further insights into surfing etiquette.” For more details of their SUP programs contact Great Ocean Road Surf Tours at their new location 106 Surf Coast Highway, Torquay, check out their website gorsurftours.com.au or call them free on 1800 787 353.

Philanthropic surfers share the love BY ALI DEANE
TWO philanthropic surfers are calling on locals to share the love of surfing by donating old surf boards to disadvantaged children of Papua New Guinea. Gary Mills discovered reading a newspaper article that village kids were surfing on bits of bark and wood and decided that living in the middle of the surf industry, there had to be something he could do to help. Within six months, Mills had organised two containers of boards and is hoping the program can continue delivering pre-loved equipment to young surfers overseas, less fortunate than us. “I worked with community youth groups years ago, but it was time to give back again. “I contacted the Australian guy who ran the surf camp in Papua New Guinea, to see what I could do. He was rapt. They’re living in the islands, in little villages, and there are some fantastic skills there. “I’ve been so surprised at the backing of the locals here. I’ve been trying to get the local surf industry involved, and most have been really proactive about it. Everyone has said how fantastic an idea it is.” When Ben Jackson from Great Ocean Road Real Estate heard about the initiative, he decided to form a partnership, and act as a drop off point for boards. “It’s a fantastic thing to give back to the underprivileged, and if people overseas can benefit from what we discard at the end of the day, I think that’s
a fantastic initiative. We live in the surf capital, and we may get boards each season, but one board for them is a great gift.” The battle that local surfers in Papua New Guinea face in securing an old fibreglass surfboard to simply enjoy what we take for granted is an ongoing challenge in the village communities as the sport evolves there. Drop off points for long and

Gallop funding canters in
short boards include Great Ocean Road Real Estate Torquay, 114 Surf Coast Highway and Strapper Surf’s Factory Outlet at 96 Surf Coast Highway, Torquay. There is a drop off point at the surf shop in Anglesea, and Mills also organises pick up of boards if needed. Contact Gary on 0419 313 974 or email@example.com and Ben on 5261 5088 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Apollo Bay Children’s Centre attendees with the cheque.
SMILE and squeals of delight abounded when Great Ocean Road Marathon director John Craven handed over $3,000 last week to the Apollo Bay Children’s Centre. The Kids Gallop, which was a fun run for families, was one of the marathon highlights and a portion of the entry fees went directly to Apollo Bay’s Otway Health towards buying play equipment and games for the children.
Entries were up on the previous year and even the foreboding weather did not quell the spirits of the enthusiastic participants. The Kids Gallop was in its second year and was organised to honour the wonderful legacy left behind by Apollo Bay stalwart, Les Noseda. The event is predicted to grow again next year.

Coastline grows wealth of expertise BY TIFFANY PILCHER TWO of the Surf Coast’s leading financial groups have joined together to offer an even greater network of financial experts to Surf Coast, Bellarine and Geelong residents. Kelly Financial and Associates joined Coastline Financial Group last month with Chris Kelly now operating from Coastline’s office in Torquay under the Coastline brand. As director of Coastline Financial Group, Darryn Jacobs is delighted to have Chris on board and said clients will not notice a change, but the benefits are being felt behind the scenes. “Acquiring the business has been a really positive step for our clients and the community,” he said. “Kelly Financial and Associates is a great fit for us, we’re both award winning businesses, now everyone has access to the best of both of us and it has increased our knowledge base as a whole.” Coastline can help with all aspects of financial decision making including wealth management, retirement planning, superannuation, business solutions, insurance and home loans. Their expertise and key focus on client relationships combined with their fresh approach to financial advice make them leaders in the field and a pleasure to deal with. “What’s unique to us is our ability to identify gaps in our client’s current financial position and take the appropriate steps to bridge that gap,” Darryn said. “That’s our primary philosophy and it is complemented by our professional and relatable approach, I like knowing people can relate to our staff and we live and breathe the coastal lifestyle. “You’re likely to see us out surfing or walking the dog along the beach, I don’t look like a typical financial planner and this isn’t a typical financial
planning business, we are always looking to be a step ahead.” Darryn has more than a decade of experience and first took an interest in the industry after visiting a financial planner himself when he was younger. “I realised it was something I was passionate about, I wanted to learn everything there was to know about the industry. “I am constantly undertaking study, it never ends for me and my staff. “We keep our finger on the pulse and are always making sure we’re always doing our best for our clients,” he said. He went on to study financial planning and took a role at a Geelong firm before forming Coastline Financial Group in Anglesea, allowing him to live, work and raise a family on the Surf Coast. He then opened the Torquay office as a natural progression for the business and to offer Coastline’s expanding client base easier access to the business. Darryn said he finds the job and assisting people achieve their goals incredibly fulfilling. “I really enjoy seeing the relationships form and grow over the years with clients and it sounds clichéd but watching people reach their goals is truly rewarding for me, it’s what gets me out of bed in the morning. “Great financial advice can benefit anyone, I think there is the perception that you need money to make money, but we welcome and support people from all walks of life. “It’s never too late to start making informed financial choices.” To enquire about Coastline Financial Group’s services or to set up an appointment with one of their highly skilled advisors, call 5264 7700 or visit coastlinefinancialgroup.com.au.
Coastline Financial Group director Darryn Jacobs is thrilled to welcome Kelly Financial and Associates’ Chris Kelly to the Coastline team.

Charcoal chicken settles in to roost in Torquay BY TIFFANY PILCHER THE Surf Coast is in a flap about the opening of the new specialty roast chicken shop and café, Torquay Charcoal Chicken and Carvery. Since opening last week, they have been serving up deliciously succulent roast chickens, beef, lamb, pork, fresh chips and roast veggies to plenty of satisfied customers. Customers can choose from generous servings of whole and half chickens, roast rolls, and a range of salads and sides. Cakes, biscuits and Map organic coffee is also available to enjoy in store, take away, or pull up a seat in the outdoor dining area on Gilbert Street. Owner Wayne Porter said quality was a huge factor when choosing the chickens and is proud to be using chemical free La Ionica chickens. “If you’ve got a chemical free chook, the seasoning and the stuffing right and it all blends together nicely with those great smoky flavours then it’s perfect,” he said. “People around Torquay demand a more organic approach to life, they’re conscious of what goes into their bodies and so far the feedback we’re getting is that people love having the chemical free option.” Wayne has chosen local ingredients and suppliers where possible including his special seasoning mix made with Geelong-based Screaming Seeds Spice Co herbs and spices. He said there is a definite emphasis on
providing delicious food prepared in-house to guarantee quality and freshness. “Everything is house made – the schnitzels and scallops are Italian style and made here, the cakes are made by our in-house cake maker – it’s all made on the premises. “The roast veggies aren’t fried first, they’re fresh and properly roasted – we are focusing on providing great wholesome, home-style food and a better, healthier fast food option.” Wayne opened the store after noticing there was no dedicated chicken shop in Torquay and found he had trouble getting a roast chicken after 6pm, especially in summer. “I always thought this would be a great spot to have a shop so when it went on the market I had to take the opportunity and I’m pleased to give people the option of getting their roasts locally instead of having to drive into Geelong.” Wayne said he has also been blessed with great staff who have made opening the store a pleasure. “They’re such a nice bunch of people and they naturally have a focus on great customer service, everyone is welcome to come and say hello.” Torquay Charcoal Chicken and Carvery is open from 7am to 8pm 7 days a week at Shop 6/19 Gilbert Street, Torquay and EFTPOS is available. For phone orders and enquiries call 5264 7054.

Learning to drive a year-round focus rain, hail or shine THE Transport Accident Commission (TAC) is reminding learner drivers and their parents not to discard their L-plates and car keys this winter, in pursuit of clocking 120 hours of practice. Learners less than 21 years of age are required to gain a minimum 120 hours practice in all conditions under the graduated licensing system, which must be recorded in the official VicRoads log book. “Driving in wet and trying conditions is essential, as it provides critical experience behind the wheel to help learners prepare for solo driving when they obtain their probationary licence,” TAC chief officer Janet Dore said. “When it comes to getting in the driver’s seat, you can never have too much practice.” Young Victorians who don’t have access to a supervising driver or car can access the L2P
Program which enables them to get their 120 hours of practice – ensuring more learners are better prepared. Learner drivers are paired with trained mentors who use program cars, often provided through local car dealers, for practice. The TAC has committed $10.5 million to enable the program to run until 2015. L2P is delivered by VicRoads in partnership with local councils. “This has proven to be a great initiative and already we are seeing the benefits,” Ms Dore said. “Millions of dollars of funding is ensuring more than 1,800 Victorian learners each year are accumulating crucial hours of practice they otherwise wouldn’t have. “We know this program is vital as young people remain over represented in road trauma.”
Driving in testing conditions on wet roads is crucial experience for learner drivers.
Hoon investigation teams trial THIS YEAR
A regional partnership with TAC and the Victorian Government Maintain vigilance about road safety. (Rural Vic Toll YTD) The above figures represent regional Victoria’s road toll.
HOON Investigation Teams will be trialled in the state’s south east as police ramp up efforts to catch hoons. The teams will be trialled over three months in Casey, Greater Dandenong and Cardinia Police Service Areas, with police targeting speeding, illegal drag racing and overloaded vehicles. The Hoon Investigation Teams will be stood up and deployed as required by the local inspectors, and will act as another tool for police as they continue to target intentional high risk driving and anti-social behaviour. The teams will consist of general duties police, Highway Patrol officers, detectives, intelligence practitioners and other specialist units. Road Policing command assistant commissioner Robert Hill said the aim of the Hoon Investigation Teams was to provide all members of Victoria Police with additional
support to address intentional high risk driving. “Hoon driving is more than just a road policing issue, it’s a matter for all Victoria Police members” he said. “Intelligence reveals a direct correlation between fatal and serious injury collisions, intentional high risk driving and crime related activity. “As an organisation, we need to send a strong message to irresponsible drivers that their actions are criminal and they will not be tolerated.” In 2012, 4,378 vehicles were impounded under the hoon legislation in Victoria while 3,856 vehicles were impounded in 2011. In Greater Dandenong, police impounded 203 vehicles in 2012 and 162 vehicles in 2011. In Casey, police impounded 96 vehicles in 2012 and 126 vehicles in 2011. In Cardinia, police impounded 60 vehicles in
2012 and 54 vehicles in 2011. Southern Metropolitan Region Divisional Commander Superintendent Derek Lamb said the Hoon Investigation Teams provided the opportunity to deploy resources in a structured way to effectively stamp out intentional high risk driving. “We have become increasingly concerned about the frequency of organised hoon driving events in Melbourne’s south east,” he said. “These events are not only a risk to those participating in them but also to other road users.” The trial is expected to finish in August and will then be evaluated. Victoria has a new 10-year Road Safety Strategy and Action Plan. For more information visit roadsafety.vic. gov.au.

Students stoked on surfing academy BY ALI DEANE OUT of surfing success in last year’s state schools surfing titles, combined with the vision of physical education teacher Nikki Hooley and Surfing Victoria’s Max Wells and Adam Robertson, Surf Coast Secondary College’s (SCSC) new surfing academy has taken off. The SCSC surf team not only surfed into second spot overall in the recent Victorian State Schools Titles at Jan Juc, but Josh van Niekerk posted third place in his round one heat in a star studded under 16s individual competition, and Izzy Cooke took fourth in the final. The results were significant seeing most surfers were from years 7 and 8, against opponents in more senior years. Students with and without surfing backgrounds have embraced the program, which combines daily fitness sessions, land based training, on beach coaching, learning about the industry, nutrition, media and events. “There are some really good up and coming surfers, they’ve got a lot of potential and they are so committed and focused,” Ms Hooley said.
“This program has seen them catching up more, surfing more, competing, and it’s safe, it’s like a big community. There’s a variety of ages, and they end up helping and mentoring each other.” Surf academy members also have the opportunity to work with local SEDA sports students on events and under local surf coaches. Surf academy member Tyrah Brown of year 10 said it didn’t matter if you were really good at surfing or learning. “We share the same home group, so there’s no chance of falling behind with other school work. “I think it’s really good for students, because you actually get out and enjoy what you’re doing, and you’re not just in the classroom. “We also get the chance to get to know kids at school you would never normally talk to, and become buddies. I’d definitely recommend it, because it’s awesome, and it’s everything – fitness and overall health as well, it’s so practical.” Ms Hooley said students had to sign a contract, be willing to do everything and keep up with their other school work. “They love it, these guys are talented, and it’s great to support them.”

Good zone in Red Cross appeal Dear Editor, On behalf of Australian Red Cross, the Barwon Zone would like to thank all those people who so generously supported us in our March Red Cross Calling Appeal. This appeal runs for the month of March during which time we knock on doors and ask for the public to support us. We also collect in shopping centres and in other ways as Geelong is growing so rapidly we can’t door knock all areas. We are very fortunate to have the assistance of some Geelong schools, Belmont High, Manifold Primary, Torquay College, St Josephs, Sacred Heart, Barwon Heads Primary School and Geelong Grammar School. It is always gratifying to see the delight many students have from the experience of contact with residents or of telling us what they have raised for the Appeal. A special thank you too, to Lions and Rotary groups who assisted. This year we raised over $96,000. The money will go to support services in Australia. Our programs are across all states. Geelong for instance has the benefit of two vehicles taking patients to and from medical appointments as far away as Colac or Melbourne, we have a Telecross service where people who are living alone at home receive a daily call and we provide breakfasts to three primary schools in Geelong. We are extremely grateful to all our supporters. Carol Richardson Red Cross appeal chair Barwon Zone
Good samaritan thanks Dear Editor, On Saturday May 18, I had a very severe fall while walking my dog on the footpath on the western boundary of the Star of the Sea village in Torquay. Two women very kindly came to my rescue, stemmed my bleeding and helped me home, fortunately only some 200 metres away. I do not know their names but would very much like to thank them for their good samaritan act. Stella Muschamp Torquay

Dear Editor, I wish to congratulate everyone involved with success of the Doug and Mary Stirling community dinner held in Lorne on Saturday May 25. Doug and Mary’s service to Lorne is well known and the evening was a fitting recognition of their commitment to the Lorne community and its people. It was such a wonderful opportunity to celebrate this with Doug and Mary. Whether it was their involvement with Lorne’s first store and first cinema, their outstanding commitment to the development of the Lorne foreshore or to capturing the history of Lorne, Doug and Mary were there. The Doug and Mary Stirling Community Award will, in future, recognise others who have made
important contributions to the Lorne community. Congratulations to the Lions Club of Lorne for this very positive initiative and to all who made it such a great success. Sarah Henderson Liberal candidate for Corangamite
A good sign Dear Editor, I was pleased to see a positive response from the Great Ocean Road Coast Committee (GORCC) to some past letters raising concerns about the shared footpath along the Esplanade. I, like others, have witnessed some near misses between bicycles and pedestrians, both young and elderly on this well constructed walkway. The sign I saw at the Bell Street and Esplanade corner appears well placed and positive in its communication. Hopefully people will read the sign and respond positively to the effective comments outlined. Well done GORCC! David Cheatley Area coordinator Neighbourhood Watch Surf Coast Area
Extra equipment available Dear Editor, Up to June 24, the 48 CFA brigades in our district can apply for VESEP grants for extra firefighting and training equipment to help them serve this community. Volunteer emergency services equipment program (VESEP) is a state government’s $12 million initiative and as the CFA volunteers’ association, Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria (VFBV) is working to help local brigades with their applications. The grants offer two dollars for every one dollar in local fundraising and will go as high as $100,000 for fire trucks and command or rescue vehicles, $50,000 for fire station improvements or smaller grants for training and emergency equipment. A lot of the grants go to smaller brigades for front line gear like chainsaws, quick fill pumps, highpowered fans for clearing smoke from buildings or infrared cameras for searching in dense smoke. VFBV helped the state government to design VESEP and we urge local CFA Brigades to visit vfbv.com.au for additional information, application forms and case studies showing how Brigades successfully applied last year. Robert Clark VFBV district 7 president, Representing CFA volunteers
Heads up on mental health Dear Editor, It’s alarming and concerning that – right now – as people are reading this, less than 50 per cent of the 600,000 Australians who have a serious mental
illness are even receiving treatment. We have to start talking about this more. The people affected and their families and friends need all of us to get past the stigma about serious mental illness. We need much more awareness about schizophrenia in particular. People with schizophrenia are 50 per cent more likely to have a heart attack and 20 per cent more likely to get cancer. On average, people with schizophrenia live 25 years less than the general population. It’s the physical health of many people with schizophrenia that is killing them – not the mental illness. We need more action by politicians of all parties. Australia is spending about 50 per cent of what other Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development countries spend on mental illness services. People with severe and persistent mental illness have now become some of the most economically and socially marginalised people in Australia. One of the biggest problems for local people is simply finding the services they need to support them. That’s why we’ve launched the Mi Networks initiative. It is a free service that anyone can use. Put simply, just call us and we’ll seek to give you the best referrals possible to the best local services available. Too many people with mental illness issues are not getting the support they need. That is what this service is all about. To call us just ring 1800 985 944 or go to MiNetworks.org.au. We are out to bury the myths and stigmas around mental health. Frankly, it’s time we got much more serious. David Meldrum Chief executive officer, Mental Illness Fellowship of Australia
Doing blocks over rates Dear Editor, Surf Coast Shire Council’s plan to double the rates paid by landowners “banking” their blocks is discriminatory. Council has no lawful right to do so, as they are not constitutionally recognised, and are therefore not lawmaking bodies. Any attempt to impose these hikes should be resisted, as the council cannot force ratepayers to build, sell, develop, or otherwise, as long as their (unlawfully-levied) rates are paid. Geelong City Council has been unable to do anything about the controversial Ritz building simply because the owner has paid the rates, thereby fulfilling all supposed obligations. Furthermore, Surf Coast Shire, like most other councils Australia-wide, is desperately seeking constitutional recognition. This is because they do not have it, and were denied such in the 1988 federal referendum. This means that local government does not have the right to levy rates, which are, technically, a property tax. Small wonder class actions are in the process of being set up in various states, including Victoria, to seek redress for these unlawful impositions. Gary Oraniuk Via email

Surfing in Grove a highlight BY HAMISH BROOKS EIGHT young Indigenous students from Palm Island travelled 2,500 kilometres for a 6-day educational and aspirational tour of Melbourne and surrounds as part of the Cathy Freeman Foundation’s (CFF) Horizons program. The students spent time in Melbourne before spending a few days at Cottage by the Sea in Queenscliff where they participated in various activities such as surfing, a visit to the rock pools and the Marine Discovery Centre. They also took an impromptu trip to the world famous Bells Beach to watch the Indigenous Surfing Competition. CFF chief officer Sonya Stephen said the kids had a great time surfing and playing in the waves at Ocean Grove as well. “They are unlike any they get up in north Queensland, not to mention how cold the water was for them!” The children were part of 600 supported by the Horizons program annually and were on the trip as recognition for the high standards they achieved in leadership, literacy and all-round behaviour in the program. Ms Stephen said half the trip was about cultural engagement and awareness and the other half was based more around outdoor activities and having fun, which is where the partnership with Cottage by the Sea – and a trip to the Bellarine and Surf Coast – came in. Meanwhile, CFF is one of the chosen charity partners for this year’s Melbourne Marathon (Sunday 13 October) – an opportunity for people who want to support CFF.

Knit one, purl one, save one penguin BY ALI DEANE WORLD Wide Knit in Public Day is fast approaching, and the knitting group at Queenscliff Uniting Church has been hard at work knitting beanies, rugs, gloves, scarves, socks and jumpers for penguins. They will be available to buy, as well as lessons on how to knit, a Devonshire tea, soup and savoury scones at a special community event this weekend. Knit in Public Day began in 2005 as a way for knitters to get together and enjoy each otherâ€™s company. It has now grown into the largest knitting event in the world, that not only shows that people of all ages can knit, but also that it can be a great community activity.
Knitting group member Sue Longmore said it was a good feeling knitting the tiny jumpers that can help save the life of a penguin, in the event of an oil spill. â€œIt is amazing to think that a patch of oil the size of a thumb-nail can kill a little penguin. â€œWhen an oiled penguin is rescued, a tiny jumper is placed on it to keep it warm and prevent it from preening and swallowing the toxic oil. â€œWhen the penguin regains its strength, a healthy weight and the natural oils that keep it waterproof, it is released back into the wild.â€? Head along to help knit squares for rugs and jumpers for injured penguins as well as learn to knit, this weekend, June 8 and 9 at Queenscliff Uniting Church, from 10am to 4pm, corner of Hesse and Stokes streets. Wool and needles will be supplied, Devonshire
Barwon Heads students lend a helping hand BY TIFFANY PILCHER
Little penguin jumpers are just some of the items the Queenscliff Uniting Church knitting group has been busily knitting in the lead up to World Wide Knit in Public Day, this weekend.
Tea, soup and savoury scones available, and locally made beanies, rugs, gloves, scarves, socks, and hot water bottle covers will be for sale. Contact Joy, Heather or Kerrie for more details on 5258 1986. This weekend also marks the opening of the Scarf Festival at The National Wool Museum in Geelong. In association with Craft Victoria, the Scarf Festival is now into its fifth year in Geelong and hundreds of scarves will be on display from knitters from across Australia and overseas. An exhibition of original scarves created to reflect the makerâ€™s own unique experiences is a key attraction and there will also be an exciting program of craft demonstrations running throughout the festival, daily from June 7 to August 25, 10am to 4pm.
BARWON Heads Primary School has continued to donate generously to community organisations and charities, recently handing over a $250 cheque to the Australian Red Cross. The aid organisation recently thanked the school for their generous response to this yearâ€™s Red Cross Calling Appeal, and said the money raised would go towards helping people during times of personal and widespread crisis. The schoolâ€™s junior school council nominated the Red Cross as a charity they would like to donate to after identifying a need to help them raise funds. Two casual clothes days were held at the end of two terms last year with each student making a gold coin donation to raise the money. The money was presented to Red Cross volunteers by the current school captains and principal Darren Roskosch at an assembly in March. Mr Roskosch said that he could see a strong sense of pride felt amongst the students when the money was presented. â€œWhen the Red Cross representatives thanked the students for organising the day and their donation you could see how good it made them feel, they were all smiles, it was written all over their faces. â€œWe are always looking for ways to directly involve our students in the community and make them aware of the importance of helping others who may not be as lucky as they are. â€œThis is one way of doing that which has benefited not only the students but also our community.â€?

Making contact with safe alternative A LOCAL optometrist has sung the praises of contact lenses. OPSM Waurn Ponds optometrist Rowan Prendergast said â€œcontact lenses are a fantastic, safe and convenient alternative to spectacles, provided you follow the instructions given by your optometrist and clean them regularly.â€? There are now 800,000 people who regularly wear contact lenses in Australia. Advances in technology have made it possible for most people to wear contact lenses successfully. â€œThere are two main types of contact lenses. Hard lenses are usually made of rigid plastic and cover only part of the cornea. Soft lenses are made of a soft and flexible water absorbing material that conforms closely to the shape of the eye. â€œThe type of lenses that are prescribed depend on your eye health, vision problems, the shape of your eyes and your work environment and hobbies. â€œFor people who surf, dive, sail or play sport, daily disposable contact lenses can be ideal.â€? All contact lenses need to be removed, cleaned and disinfected in order to remove micro-organisms that can cause infection; however, advances in
technology have meant that some people are now able to be fitted with extended or continuous wear contact lenses. These lenses are made from materials that effectively transmit oxygen to the eye. This means the lenses can be safely worn for extended periods. â€œIt is important to seek advice when considering contact lenses as there are many variables that need to be considered. â€œA prescription for contact lenses differs from a spectacle prescription and a thorough examination is essential for the most comfortable effective fit. â€œThe examination includes measurement of the corneal size and shape, pupil size and eyelid contours.â€? In some cases, contact lenses can give better vision than spectacles for particular conditions such as severe short-sightedness or longsightedness. To book an eye check at OPSM Waurn Ponds, phone 5243 9288 or book online at opsm.com.au. OPSM Waurn Ponds optometrist Rowan Prendergast teaches contact lens insertion to a client.
Safety improved for women in mental health THE safety of women in mental health care at Barwon Health has been given a boost thanks to more than $252,000 from the state government. Minister for Mental Health Mary Wooldridge said that the hospital will be funded under the governmentâ€™s Safety of Women in Mental Health Care initiative to develop a womenâ€™s courtyard; develop two additional bedrooms; and install a nurse call push button system in every bedroom and ensuite within the adult inpatient unit in Geelong. Ms Wooldridge said that women have the right to receive treatment and care, free from fear of victimisation, violence, sexual assault and retraumatisation. â€œEnsuring services respect and are sensitive to womenâ€™s needs and their safety is a Coalition government priority,â€? Ms Wooldridge said. â€œUnder the Safety of Women in Mental Health Care initiative, we have committed more than $4 million to 22 mental health inpatient units across Victoria to improve facility safety through measures

Ms Wooldridge said. Member for South Barwon Andrew Katos, who advocated for the funding in Parliament, welcomed the investment with Barwon Health. â€œItâ€™s great to see that the Coalition government listens to the local services and helps them to respond in a practical way to improve the safety of a group of women who can be very vulnerable,â€? Mr Katos said.

â€œOne of the key lessons reported by attendees at this event was how important it is to communicate with each other. â€œIf you think that someone you know might be experiencing anxiety or depression then take action. â€œAlways offer to help, show kindness and empathy towards that person. â€œOverall the evening was a great success.

BY ALI DEANE INTERNATIONAL troubadours The Outside Track have just touched down in Australia to join in on what is going to be the greatest celebration of Celtic music this side of the equator. It will be the first time Australian audiences have had the pleasure of seeing The Outside Track on our shores when they hit the stage this weekend for the National Celtic Festival in Portarlington. Fresh from touring the UK, Denmark and Germany they have been delighting audiences around the world with their modern take on the traditional; blending rhythms and grooves with virtuosity and energy. Hailing from Scotland, Ireland, Cape Breton and Vancouver, this band is united by a love of traditional music and a commitment to creating new music on its foundation. Harp player Ailie Robertson said anyone of any age could enjoy their music. “I think Celtic music has got the rep that it’s all diddly diddly stuff. But every time young people see us, they go away and say wow. It’s not pop music, but it’s not that far from pop. There are a lot of grooves and rhythms. It’s really fun.” The Outside Track has enjoyed five years of extensive touring in the UK, Europe, Canada and the USA, including appearances at Celtic Connections, Celtic Colours, Goderich, Mission, Memoire et Racines, Sidmouth, and Whitby festivals. And Robertson said she can’t wait to perform in Portarlington with new lead singer Aoife Scott. “Our previous lead singer (Norah Rendell) just had her first baby, so this is the first time Aoife’s joined us on tour. “Travelling is just one of the great perks of the job. We’ve been around the world now, and we’re on the road six to seven months of the year. “It is so fun playing with lots of bands, on stage and on tour. You get the opportunity to meet the other bands, and most of the Australian acts will be new to us so it’s going to be really exciting.” Robertson said growing up in Scotland, traditional music was a huge part of the culture, alongside Ceilidhs, also known as traditional Irish dances. “It’s a part of you from a really young age, so you don’t even really notice. “I grew up playing classical piano, but my harp teacher was into traditional music, so I took it up. We all met at uni, studying in Ireland. It was never my intention to be a full-time musician, but I’m really glad it happened.” The Outside Track will perform at Parks Hall, Portarlington on Friday night from 9.50pm, on
The Outside Track has travelled all the way from Ireland to play at this year’s National Celtic Festival in Portarlington.
Saturday you can see them in the Club Room between 1pm and 2pm, Saturday at 9.20pm they return to Parks Hall, and on Sunday they will join in on the Festival Super Ceilidh from 4-6pm also at Parks Hall. Imogen Brough, Zeptepi, The Ploughboys and Tolka are just some of the other fantastic artists you can catch at the National Celtic Festival this weekend across a dozen heated venues. There will also be dance workshops, language, poetry, pipes, drums, Celtic cuisine, Celtic pursuits and activities. Head to nationalcelticfestival.com, Geelong Performing Arts Centre, 50 Little Malop Street, Geelong, or phone 5225 1200 for more information and tickets.

Spirit of adventure in valley IT IS hard to adequately describe the Yarra Valley and its beauty, so picturesque and so close (only an hour or so from Melbourne), yet so very much a world away from the everyday comings and goings. This very fact of proximity alone has seen the region flourish as a tourist destination – especially wine tourism – and this continues to gain momentum. With a pioneering wine heritage that stretches back to when vines were first planted in 1838, the fortunes of the regions wine productivity and popularity have fluctuated over the ensuing years. But since the re-establishment of the wine industry in the region in the 1960s and 1980s, grape varieties such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet and Shiraz have become synonymous with the region and justly famous for their high quality. A new spirit of adventure has emerged over the last decade or so, with young winemakers prepared to experiment in the winery and focus more attention on the land, that is the “terroir”. This innovation and inventiveness has lead to a more down to earth and natural winemaking approach and philosophy, challenging traditions and entrenched modern winemaking processes in search of “another” way. Two such characters that embody these beliefs are winemakers Timo Mayer and William Downie. It’s hard to deny the similarities that exist between the two yet each has their own unique qualities. Both use big Burgundy bottles with cork closures and wax seals and a natural “holistic” approach to their winemaking with a heavy emphasis on the site and the vintage – paramount to their ambitions of producing wines that have a sense of “place”. Timo Mayer was born in Germany with a family winemaking history that stretches back over three centuries, and he spends a lot of time in the vineyards, thinning shoots, plucking leaves and opening up the canopies in an effort to produce much smaller crops to increase concentration, complexity and quality. Known for his work at Gembrook Hill, he also produces wines from his own vineyard – Bastard Hill. William Downie is well known for his obsession with the Pinot Noir grape and his different ways of going about it, yet the results are outstanding and his wines are lauded for their incredible complexity, presence and personality. Ever since establishing his label in 2003, having lived and worked in Burgundy for many years, he continually strives for purity and detail in his wines, whilst reflecting their site – adding or subtracting nothing. He believes that in the vineyard you should do everything, whilst in the winery, do nothing in a sense. As well as his own label with very simplistic but distinctive, unique and eye-catching artwork by artist Reg Mombassa, Downie is also involved in another Yarra Valley project – Thousand Candles. Again, the story comes back to one constant – the vineyard, it’s all about the vineyard.
Thousand Candles Yarra Valley Red Blend 2011 ($110) This incredible wine is a blend of Syrah (Shiraz), Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc, grown on the Thousand Candles vineyard site. It’s a wine of ethereal beauty, complexity, suppleness, great texture, length and finesse. Downie uses no temperature control during ferment, doesn’t pump the juice over the skins, doesn’t add any acid and only uses preservatives at bottling. This approach has raised eyebrows from
observers thinking it would all go down the drain but the results are very impressive as is the price.
William Downie Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2012 ($72) Will Downie lives and breathes the Pinot Noir variety, producing wines from the Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula, and Gippsland regions. The new 2012 vintage releases are a work par excellence, and very rare so if you’re into Pinot Noir, track ’em down quick!
Mayer Yarra Valley ‘‘Close Planted’’ Pinot Noir 2012 ($58) Timo Mayer is located in the very groovy Healsville area, a hotpot of emerging wine talent and this wine sourced from his close planted vines shows amazing funkiness, texture and complexity, a signature of this wine.
THE man who is possibly Australia’s biggest musical living legend and best kept secret, Gil Askey, is set to perform two big shows at the Piping Hot Chicken Shop in Ocean Grove on June 7 and 8. As a musical director, producer, songwriter, musical arranger and performer, Askey’s rollcall of collaborators, clients and bandmates is almost unbelievable. As one of the men responsible for Motown he has worked with Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, The Jackson Five, Gladys Knight, The Temptations and The Supremes. When Diana Ross went solo she took Askin with her as her musical director and he wrote the score for her first film, Lady Sings the Blues. He has performed alongside jazz luminaries such as Miles Davis and Dizzy Gillespie and once did a duet with Billie Holliday. Piping Hot Chicken Shop owner Ben Chudoschnik said he has been waiting for the opportunity to showcase Askey’s remarkable talent again. “He was here around this time last year and it was one of the best shows we’ve ever had, we knew we had to get him back and this time there are two shows so more people can have the experience of seeing him live. “There aren’t too many original jazz legends still around and he’s almost a hidden treasure in Australia and when he pops up it really is a very special treat, it’s incredible to have someone of that calibre performing here,” he said. He will be joined by three of Australia’s foremost jazz musicians Paul Williamson, Tim
Neil and Mark Jordan. Born in Texas in 1925, Askey has been living in Melbourne for the past 40 years and is heavily involved in school music programs. Gil Askin will take the stage at the Piping Hot Chicken Shop, 6/63 The Terrace, Ocean Grove on June 7 and 8. Tickets are selling fast, to purchase yours contact the shop on 5255 1566.

His fascination with words, meaning and context lives through in his work, and he hopes viewers can look inside and enjoy their own interpretations. “This show explores where your mind takes you sometimes; everyday things in life. “There are words and letters in my paintings, and that’s because they make me feel a certain way, and a word represents that. “Art can be like a song, where people can adapt the meaning to their own lives, and not just think of me painting it.” Raglus’ allure to graphic art of the 50s and 60s is rooted in his appreciation of the sign writing of the time, where artists had the skills to create artwork by hand, not the ultra-perfect designs of today, which can be entirely built on computers.

High voltage rock hits Torquay Cherry Coloured Funk and Zone by Aireys Inlet artist Kasper Raglus will draw you into the zone at Boom Gallery, Newtown.
Immersed in art at home in Aireys Inlet, Raglus said he loves the balance he now enjoys with his father Jeff, the artist behind the famous Mambo designs of the 80s and more recent solo exhibitions, and trumpeter in the Beachniks and Victoriana Gaye. “We’ve both gotten to a point where we feed off each other. He’s definitely an inspiration, but it’s really good to have someone there, who’s so experienced, and to
bounce ideas off.” Head to Boom Gallery, 11 Rutland Street Newtown to check out the distinctive graphic work of Kasper Raglus in Zones and Inner Visions Explored. The show opened on May 31 and continues until the June 22. Meanwhile checkout facebook.com/ ParadiseTheBand and keep an eye out for Paradise’s second single release.

New play explores FONY business GEELONGâ€™S Courthouse Arts is set to present their first ensemble project for the year with the new play FONY 2013 opening on May 30. Looking at the phenomenon of social media, digital activism, trolling, FONY 2013 explores how to be authentic in an anonymous world where you can be anyone you want to be. The play aims to get audiences asking what is real and what is not, itâ€™s set to mimic the online world, making audiences laugh and think about crying without having to totally commit. The title of the play is based on KONY 2012, the viral internet campaign to capture war criminal Joseph Kony. The campaign failed spectacularly when one of the filmmakers suffered an excruciatingly public breakdown which was filmed and caused yet another internet sensation. The eye-opening play is written and directed by Ross Mueller and Georgina Capper, stars Jesse Bickerton, Didem Caia, Charlie McIntyre, Thomas Shears and CJ Sismaet and performances will run until June 8 after which it will be shown in Sydney. Perfect for audiences from year 9 to 99, FONY 2013 will be performed at Courthouse Arts, corner Gheringhap and Little Malop streets, Geelong from May 30 to June 8. Tickets are $15 to $22 and available through courthouse.org.au.

farm food AT HOME with Tony Le Deux
Pau! French food rules MY DAUGHTER visited the Pyrenees region of France last year as part of a school exchange. Other than being robbed on her arrival at Charles de Gaulle airport and a little home sickness, she enjoyed every minute of it. She stayed in the city of Pau near the Spanish border with a French family who welcomed her with open arms. The city is famous for being the birthplace of King Henry IV, King of France. When the king was born, his lips were moistened with the local Jurancon wine and rubbed with garlic shortly after birth. As with almost all of France the people are passionate about food and always of the opinion that their regional food is best. Pau has been an important city in the Tour of France. With its proximity to the mountains, it is a resting place for the riders before they ascend the Pyrenees. It is a base for many outdoor activities with wonderful fishing rivers, skiing and a vast array of fresh produce available. Like much of the south west of France, duck is the dominant meat. Regional delicacies include foie gras, cured ham, sheep’s milk cheeses, fresh peas, mountain berries and wild greens. Poule au Pot is a local specialty dish. King Henry famously promised his subjects, “If God spares me; I will ensure that there is no working man in my kingdom who does not have the means to have a chicken in the pot every Sunday”. Henry IV united France at a time of political unrest both internally and abroad. He proceeded to bring order and prosperity back to France and the promise of regular sustenance for the population played no small part in his plans. My daughter had no problems with sustenance while she was there. Regular family meals and occasions meant she experienced most of the local cuisine. One of her favourites was a garbure, a thick soup of potatoes, white beans and duck. It was always washed down with the local Jurancon dry white wine. I can’t promise the Jurancon wine, but you will find ham hocks, duck fat, our own pork sausages and confit duck legs available at Torquay Farm Foods. (I’m sure I can recommend a local wine to enjoy with this wonderful winter meal).

Solo Sid still has the blues BY TIFFANY PILCHER THOUGH much loved Apollo Bay band The Vasco Era may be on an indefinite hiatus, fans can catch lead vocalist and guitarist Sid O’Neil at a solo show at Kobo Café over the long weekend. Known for his raspy, soaring vocals and dishevelled, energetic performances, it will be a chance to see the talented musician in a different light. It couldn’t be confirmed whether or not O’Neil will perform any original music, but his penchant for playing a quirky variety of covers ranging from Tom Waits and Elvis Presley to impromptu interjections of the Blue Heelers’ theme means there is a good chance there will be some interesting surprises. The Vasco Era went on their second hiatus midlast year while Sid travelled and began studying social work and bassist Ted O’Neil and drummer Michael Fitzgerald pursued other ventures. They returned to play a few more shows before announcing during a performance in January they were splitting, though many fans hold hope for reunion thanks to their continued communication through their Facebook page. Their debut – the rollicking concept album Oh We Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside – was met with widespread praise, as was sophomore concept album Lucille and their third self-titled album. Sid O’Neil is appearing at Kobo Café, 1 Cliff Street, Torquay on Sunday June 9 at 1.30pm, tickets are $10, available from the venue and selling fast.
Garbure INGREDIENTS 125g dried white beans (cannellini or similar) soaked overnight 1 smoked ham hock 2 tbsp duck fat 2 onions, coarsely chopped 4 carrots, coarsely chopped 3 baby turnips, quartered 2 waxy potatoes, such as Dutch cream or bintje, cut into 2cm pieces 2 garlic cloves Tied herbs of parsley, sage and thyme 250 gm savoy cabbage, coarsely chopped 400 gm pork sausages 2 confit duck legs
Sid O’Neil (right), pictured here with former Vasco Era bandmates Ted O’Neil and Michael Fitzgerald, is performing solo at Kobo Café on Sunday afternoon.
METHOD Place drained beans in a large saucepan with the hock. Cover with cold water, bring to the boil then simmer until beans are tender (45-50 minutes). Drain, reserve beans and ham hock. Heat duck fat in a large saucepan over medium heat, add onion and sauté until soft. Add carrot, turnip, potato, garlic, herbs and reserved beans and ham hock. Cover with 2 litres cold water, boil then reduce heat and simmer until vegetables are tender (30 minutes), add cabbage, sausages and duck pieces and cook a further 30 minutes. Discard herbs and remove meat from hock and duck bones. Coarsely chop meat, and return to soup. Season to taste.

Ploughboys reunite for Celtic festival BY ALI DEANE THE reunion of Australian folk favourites the Ploughboys is one more reasons the 2013 National Celtic Festival in Portarlington will be so special. The original Ploughboys have been known to “get back together” from time to time since the new lineup started seven years ago under the wing of Damian Howard, but the last time was 18 months back. Famous through the 90s and 2000s for their original upbeat folk music, the Ploughboys of today have their feet set firmly in the Australian country music scene “The sound has changed a little bit,” original Ploughboy Dominic McAlinden admitted. “But the new band still focuses heavily on a very Australian sound. “We had three really strong songwriters in Howard, Allan O’Connell and Peter Denahy, who went on to play with Slim Dusty’s band and be awarded three golden guitars in recognition of the country scene. “We’re all still very good friends, and still very much love music.” The Ploughboys were known for their appearances at festivals across Australia, including a string of performances at the Maldon Folk Festival, Woodford,
Port Fairy Folk Festival, and Portarlington’s National Celtic Festival. “The festival scene was our mainstay, we liked to play all the festival circuit, and Howard thought this would be a good opportunity to get all the old boys back together. “The band has a great camaraderie. When we get back together, it can be quite a party. We’re all really looking forward to it.” The reunion of the Ploughboys will see O’Connell, McAlinden, Denahy, John Edgar, James Rust, Greg Hunt, Declan O’Neill join Damian Howard and the new members hit the Portarlington stages. “People will get a lot of the original songs, we made three or four albums, and we’ll play a lot of that stuff, festival goers will recognise a lot of those songs.” McAlinden, brother of festival director Una McAlinden said returning would be very special. “It’s become a truly international festival, the calibre equals some of the European festivals. “The main drawcard is the quality of the music. Una has made fantastic connections overseas, and has been bringing the cream of international Celtic acts. It is amazing really.” The National Celtic Festival takes over Portarlington on this long weekend, June 7-10.
Warm up with us this long weekend!

The Superjesus rise again BY TIFFANY PILCHER LEGIONS of devoted Superjesus followers have been begging for a reunion since the grunge rockers split a decade ago and now it’s happening with their Resurrection Tour hitting Geelong on Sunday.
After playing what was supposed to be a one-off gig in Adelaide for their hardcore hometown fans in February, guitarist Tim Henwood, who now lives in Aireys Inlet said the raw energy between the band members was undeniable and soon they were organising a full-blown tour.
The Superjesus is rocking out of retirement with an Australia-wide tour, including a stop in Geelong on Sunday June 9.
“There was a lot of love in the room. “It was bizarre because nothing had changed even though we hadn’t even spoken to each other in over a decade. “The energy hit us all and it didn’t take much convincing for us to keep it going.” The Adelaide band won over fans nationwide when they broke out in the mid-90s with their dual ARIA award winning EP Eight Step Rail. A string of hits including “Gravity” and “Secret Agent Man” followed before issues within the band caused the split in 2004. In-fighting was widely reported and Henwood, who left The Superjesus in 2002 to pursue other projects including The Androids and Rogue Traders said they’ve moved on from their less than harmonious past. “We’re the same now as we were then for better or worse but we’re not as foolish these days. “It’s easy to get swept up in your own selfimportance but because we’re a bit older and wiser now, we know better.” On the eve of the first show of the tour Henwood was radiating excitement. “I’ve always loved the music, it’s a great opportunity to play the songs I love again”, he said. “Now I’m trying to get them back into my mind – don’t worry I’ll have it worked out before the shows!” The Superjesus is playing The Wool Exchange, 44 Corio Street, Geelong on Sunday June 9, doors open at 8pm and tickets are available from oztix. com.au.
Get swept up in the beautiful music of Ajak Kwai this Sunday night in Queenscliff as she shares her stories from the heart, in Arabic, Sudanese and English. Kwai will bring the colours, rhythms and mystery of the Upper Nile, gospel signing from Cairo and her latest offering – a funky fusion of Sudanese and Melbourne sounds. Her distinctive voice and vibrant soul style songs have seen her in demand playing at festivals in Byron Bay, Apollo Bay, National Folk Festival, Port Fairy and the Melbourne International Festival. Dive into Songs and Stories of Sudan with Ajak Kwai this Sunday from 5pm at Queenscliff Uniting Church, corner of Hesse and Stokes streets, Queenscliff. To book phone Heather on 5258 2954, pop into the information centre or get your tickets on the door, ($27 includes a warming winter meal).

A family member or friend may require your help this week. Some constructive Capricorn advice is just what the doctor ordered, but resist the temptation to be judgmental and critical. Plus peacemaker Venus helps you smooth over cracks in a troubled partnership. Mars encourages you to get physically fit via sensible eating, sport and outdoor activities.
Rams are feeling restless, as Uranus stimulates your spontaneous side. So your motto for the moment is from Angelina Jolie who was born on June 4 and has her moon in Aries “I believe in living on impulse… I think you should live completely free.” The new moon cranks up your communication zone but, if you are loose with the truth, you’re bound to be caught out!
With Venus visiting your sign from June 3-28 you’re focused on how to look and feel more fabulous. Beauty tip of the week is from the exotic dancer Josephine Baker born on June 3, 1906 “The secret to the fountain of youth is to think youthful thoughts.” And are you feeling super-stressed? The new moon urges you to get some well-earned rest and relaxation this weekend.
Venus and Saturn bless professional projects and business ventures, plus you’ll find the harder you work and the more creative you are the more successful you’ll be. Librans are incurable romantics and Saturday is a super day to make a long-term relationship commitment via proposing, getting married or renewing your wedding vows. Singles – love and work are linked.
Vivacious Venus your ruling planet moves through your communication zone for the next three weeks so you’re in the mood to mix and mingle; socialise and circulate; talk, text and tweet. On Friday, Neptune encourages romantic rendezvous, group projects and all sorts of creative endeavors. Single Bulls… true love could be as close as the boy or girl next door.
The new moon activates your hopes and wishes zone. Circumstances are constantly changing so you’ll find your dreams for the future will have to be regularly reviewed and updated. And don’t fall into the trap of thinking you have all the answers. If you are open to new information and unexpected experiences, then you’ll learn something of great value this week.
With serious Saturn moving slowly through your sign, you may be dwelling on the people, possessions or places that are no longer in your life. Stop obsessing Scorpio! One cycle has to end in order for an exciting new one to begin. Draw inspiration and comfort from birthday great Josephine Baker “The things we truly love stay with us always, locked in our hearts.”
The new moon’s in your recreation zone, so do all you can to keep yourself entertained this weekend. But think twice before you blurt out something controversial that you later regret. And there’s a danger you’ll be misled as Neptune and Mars stir up your finance zone. So smart Aquarians will get sound professional advice before making any major money moves.
The weekend new moon is in Gemini so it’s time to refresh your appearance; review your personal life; or reboot a rickety relationship. Uranus and Neptune are urging you to make creative and radical changes, while Saturn and Pluto demand that you do so in a considered and organised way. Which is a tricky balancing act! And don’t rush money matters.
Have you lost some of your Virgo vim and vigor? And are other people putting a lot of pressure on you to get things done, according to their schedule? This week’s stars encourage you to pace yourself; prioritise, and learn to say no. The new moon points to a fresh professional start via a challenging project, a refurbished work place or an exciting new job.
Sagittarians are independent souls. You don’t appreciate others cramping your spontaneous style. But, with the new moon, Mars and Jupiter powering through your partnership zone, there’s no getting away from close relationships this week. If you’re attached, aim to be more present and available. Singles – look for love with an amorous Aries or a gregarious Gemini.
You’ve got the power! With Mercury moving into your charm zone, use your Piscean powers of persuasion to help get others onside. And keep the lines of communication open, especially with children, teenagers and friends. Friday, Saturday and Sunday are fabulous for all sorts of artistic pursuits, as you express yourself as creatively and colorfully as possible.

From the coast, C Coastcards is a little slice of llife from the businesses on the b Surf Coast S and a Bellarine.
MARSHALL Photo: PETER
T Twenty-six businesses send a missive to readers through these pages about who they are, what they do and how they enhance the liveability of the region through their commercial enterprise. Restaurants, builders, aged care facilities and some of the coast’s best retailers are among the coastcard senders who provide an insight into what they do and how their services engage with coastal life.
Heads right for everything
Austech gets the picture
At The Heads is back to basics and happy hour runs throughout winter and summer. Enjoy the atmosphere on couches, watch TV, sip beers on the deck, soak up live music and sample the exciting new winter menu.
If things are looking a little fuzzy and pixelated at your place this winter, or you are just having trouble hooking up new appliances, there is no need to despair.
People who love the iconic venue are discovering more reasons to make it their number one restaurant destination and function venue. Enjoy a glass of wine and an antipasto plate on the deck or a barista made coffee and a decadent sweet on the couches. Diners can experience quality favourites like fish and chips or a parmigiana alongside such dishes as the seafood platter for two. As well as our delicious winter menu we have now introduced a Japanese-inspired menu to the Mulloway room, this will be available June–August. The variety is as diverse as the clientele, which range from businessmen in suits to families that have just strolled in from the beach.
With over 20 years industry experience, Adrian Waite of Austech Antennas promises better reception, anywhere. Based in Torquay, and servicing the Surf Coast and Bellarine – Ocean Grove, Armstrong Creek, as well as Anglesea, Aireys Inlet, Fairhaven and Lorne – Austech deal in only heavy duty Australian antennas made especially for our coastal environment. “I take care of all antenna installations, reception problems and fault finding, home theatre set-up, as well as cabling for smart TVs,” Mr Waite said. “We enable customers to access more channels through the internet and online interactive media. “I also extend to all antenna related work, including digital antenna systems, set-top boxes, satellite and amplifier systems, extra TVs and telephone points, as well as tuning all channels.”

A social experience
A Jan Juc classic
At Barwarre Gardens you feel part of the community rather than a township.
Whether you’re in the mood for an innovative dining experience, a classic pub meal or some mouth watering bar snacks, you’ll love what’s on offer at The Beach Hotel Jan Juc.
Moving into Barwarre Gardens Retirement Village allows residents the freedom to socialise with people their own age and join in activities such as barbeques, social drinks or a spot of lunch with their neighbours and friends. Instead of spending time on maintenance or mowing lawns around the home, Barwarre Gardens residents have more time to learn a craft or language or enjoy hobbies like walking, Tai Chi and golf. They can go on a holiday, locking and leaving their home without worrying about its security. Village life is all about doing as much or as little as you like. “Come and visit our community to see what it’s all about,” Barwarre Gardens resident Andy DeBekker said (pictured cooking at a recent barbeque).
Choose from hearty winter meals, tempting share plates and irresistible house-made desserts while enjoying the warm, welcoming and family friendly atmosphere. All dishes are made with high quality, fresh ingredients and a wide range of delicious vegetarian and gluten free options are available. The famous parma menu features 11 different styles has two new additions to choose from. Head into The Beach Hotel on Wednesdays for $18 parmas, Thursdays are Kids Nights with free kids entertainment from 6pm to 8pm and a huge Happy Hour is on every Friday from 5pm to 7.30pm. Meals are available all day on weekends and you can catch all the best sports action live from around the globe with Fox Sports on the big screens. The Beach Hotel Jan Juc is open seven days for lunch and dinner.

Inspired floor ideas
Bellarine Property about you
3 Stuart Avenue, Jan Juc 5261 5111 thebeachhoteljanjuc.com.au
Bellarine resident Adam Little has laid over 500,000 metres of carpet in his 26 year career.
This company profile might be about us, but we like to think it’s all about you.
Enough to cover the surface of the MCG 25 times or a tennis court over 1,900 times. He hopes the trend continues as he and wife Dahna celebrate the first anniversary of their business, Bellarine Flooring. “The first 12 months has gone better than expected,” Adam said. “We have been able to employ two full-time staff, Stuart Forbes in our showroom and an apprentice, Ryan Wheelahan.” Located in the industrial estate in Ocean Grove, products include domestic and commercial carpet, solid timber, vinyl and laminate/ floating flooring and rugs. Also within these product lines Bellarine Flooring offers carpet tiles, quality carpet seconds, timber decking, bamboo, cork and an installation service. With over 600 different styles and colours in carpet alone, and a large timber flooring display, everyone’s lifestyle needs and desires are catered for. CONTACT DETAILS:

Rylock meet the challenge
Reducing the carbon footprint of that new home you are planning to build is not such a big challenge. Government regulations these days make adequate wall and ceiling insulation mandatory, and this prevents heat escaping from the home during the cooler months, and heat coming into the home during the warmer months. Complementing the insulation, architects and building designers can advise you on many aspects such as the orientation of the building, allowing the sun to help warm your home in the winter, and keep out the unwanted summer heat. Having got that as perfect as possible for the style of home you want to build on the site you have chosen, you should then consider whether the windows should be single glazed or double glazed. Obviously if the windows are small less heat and cold will pass through them and double glazing will not be as important. However, lots of glass means they should be double glazed.

The Surf Coast Times, Bellarine Times and Armstrong Creek Times are the region’s only locally owned newspapers and are produced specifically for residents, making them the perfect medium for advertisers wishing to connect with the community.

GRAEME THE GARDENER
For great gardens, go to Graeme BY TIFFANY PILCHER QUALITY workmanship and superior finishes at affordable prices is what itâ€™s all about for Graeme the Gardener. Graeme Manners has more than 30 years experience in aspects of domestic and commercial gardening and grounds maintenance, lawns and edges, pruning, shaping and odd jobs. He said a strong interest in the industry from a young age led him to become a lifelong gardener with a focus on excellent service and quality. â€œWhen I was a kid I would spend a few hours on weekends in the garden with Dad and that sparked the interest. â€œI then went on to work in parks and gardens in
Western Australia and spent 15 years working with VIP Lawn Mowing Services, which is now known as VIP Home Services.â€? â€œI have always found it to be a very rewarding job. â€œItâ€™s the satisfaction of seeing the finished job when the garden looks great and the customer is pleased â€“ thatâ€™s what makes it enjoyable.â€? Graeme is based in Torquay where he lived for ten years before spending four years in South Australia. He has recently returned and is looking forward to settling back into life on the coast. Graeme offers special rates for pensioners and competitive rates for all domestic and commercial jobs. To have your garden or grounds maintained by the best, contact Graeme the Gardener on 0428 155 165.

Ocean Grove’s silver lining at championships BY ALI DEANE WILLIAMSTOWN Surf Life Saving Club has regained the reputation as the fastest in the state for inflatable rescue boat racing by taking out TRE Motorsport Victorian IRB Championships at Lorne on Saturday. Perfect conditions with building swell was the perfect test for teams who travelled from 18 clubs across the state to challenge in surf, teams, mass and tube rescues and the exciting 16-person life saver relay. Williamstown was clearly ahead for most of the day, taking out the majority of events and the Bob Anthony Cup for the overall point score winner. Defending champions Ocean Grove brought it home in the women’s tube rescue, women’s surf rescue, and men’s teams rescue and walked away with second place overall. According to Life Saving Victoria coordinator of sports events Tom Mitchell there were some very exciting races through the day, especially in surf rescue and the life saver relay that saw the lead change a handful of times with favourites Williamstown being disqualified. “Saturday was perfect – we had a small swell coming through which tested the crews but still allowed for fast racing through the whole day. “I think the lead changed at least five times through the race, and the straight rescues - the IRB surf rescues are always fast and exciting.” Williamstown won four of the nine events and placed in three others, and competition was tight for the minor placings with just five points separating second and fourth. Mitchell said Williamstown was great a supporter of IRB competition and had a weight in numbers approach to the competition. “They had up to six crews in one of the events which is enormous – good clubs usually have three or four crews. “They are also very fortunate to have some of the state’s best, and most passionate IRB coaches and athletes with them, including the Victorian IRB state

team coach, Ben Griffin.” Five athletes and a manager were selected from Ocean Grove for the Victorian IRB state team, as part of a special dinner hosted by Lorne SLSC with over 150 people in attendance.
The state team will travel to Darwin later in July to compete in the 2013 Australian IRB Interstate Championships. IRB racing is an important part of improving the skills of the state’s surf rescue crews, who can be called upon to carry out rescues
in any conditions. Since its introduction into surf rescue in the 1970s, the IRB has revolutionised rescue procedures on our beaches and has saved many lives. Head to lifesavingvictoria.com.au/ irbcompetition for more results.

RECREATIONAL anglers who fish for trout and salmon in Victorian rivers are reminded that the season closes at midnight on Monday June 10. Fisheries Victoria executive director Anthony Hurst said the annual closure protects most spawning trout and enables wild stocks to replenish undisturbed each winter. “The Queen’s Birthday long weekend provides freshwater anglers with one last opportunity to catch trout in our rivers this season,” Mr Hurst said. “Although the rivers close for about three months during winter, anglers can still fish for trout and salmon in Victorian lakes and reservoirs. “The annual trout closed season applies only to rivers and streams. “More than 130 lakes are stocked by Fisheries Victoria annually using fishing licence fees and the Victorian government’s $16 million Recreational Fishing Initiative, so there are still plenty of good fishing opportunities on offer while the rivers are closed. “One of the best performing waters currently is Lake Toolondo, south west of Horsham. “It’s been producing trout to two kilograms for anglers and has rebounded strongly following several years of drought and low water levels.” Other stocked lakes worth a visit during winter include: • Lake Wendouree • Tullaroop Reservoir • Lake Purrumbete • Lauriston Reservoir • Lake Hume • Lake Bolac • Blue Rock Lake • Cairn Curran Reservoir • Barkers Creek Reservoir • Eildon Pondage • Devilbend Reservoir • Lake Fyans • Hepburn Lagoon • Mount Beauty Pondage • Lake Wartook. Mr Hurst said the trout fishing season in rivers reopens at midnight on Friday September 6 this year. So if you had nothing planned for the Queen’s Birthday long weekend or even if you do, have a go at seeing if you can catch a last trout for the season

Champions crowned at Indigenous Titles BY ALI DEANE THE best Indigenous surfers in the country lit up the lineup at last week’s Australian Indigenous Surfing Titles at Bells Beach, which saw pristine conditions and close battles. High scores were essential, and competitors didn’t disappoint. Forster’s Joe Haddon clinched a nailbitingly close final win over defending champion Russell Molony from the Central Coast, posting an 8.40 final ride on top of his 7.93, totalling 16.33 to Molony’s 15.94. Haddon, 2012 runner-up had just recovered from a series of surfing related ankle injuries but was looking hard to beat on opening day of the competition. He described his win as a dream. “I've seen sporting events go down to the wire and imagined how the winners would feel and today it actually happened to me – it is honestly the best day of my life to win an event like this,” Haddon said. By winning he secured a wild card into the Australian Open Titles later this year at Port Macquarie.
Local surfer Anthony Hume posted excellent scores in the early rounds, bowing out in round three, and top Victorian surfer Jordie Campbell from Wilson’s Promontory could not get past Haddon and Soli Bailey in the quarter final. In the Masters, despite a car accident en route to Victoria from his home in Wollongong, former Pipeline Hawaii Champion Robbie Page showed his strength with a comprehensive win over Aaron Carle, Matt Molony and Len Collard. “It shook me to have such a serious accident and I’m very lucky to be alive let alone at this special event. This is an amazing gathering and it’s growing in numbers and we all can’t wait to get back here next year – Bells is a special place.” Open Women’s winner Tweed Heads’ Amber Mercy took the title as the sole female competitor, in what was her first surf in Victoria. “It's been a fantastic few days here and I’m honoured to win and hope next year we see more Amber Mercy from Tweed Heads enjoying a perfect Rincon wave, as the only female competitor.

ANGLESEA GOLF CLUB IT IS the pointy end of the pennant season for the ladies. With only one round to go it is possible for the firsts in Division 2 to win but highly unlikely. In the same division it is possible for the second team to not be relegated – they need a 5/0 and a win in a playoff – probably unlikely. Our Division 4 team needs to win and another team to lose – badly – and Division 6 are not in contention on either the top or the bottom of their competition. Results on Friday were a 3/2 win to the firsts against Clifton Springs and a 4/1 loss to the seconds against Lonsdale, both played at Lonsdale, and a loss for Division 6 5/0 against The Sands at 13th Beach. Sunday Pennant finished on Sunday and congratulations to Lonsdale for their win – our ladies finished 4th. Earlier on in the week the Anglesea Football Club held their golf day. The members dominated the ladies event with the team of Janice Calvert, Jill Emerson, Judy Talbot and Barb Cook winning, and making it a family affair, the men’s winners were David Calvert, Luke Sceney, Dean Oakley and Dean Lobbe scoring 56.
WITH MARGOT SMITH
shot and DJ Wylie started his round well scoring his on the first. NTP winners were Brad Eskrigge, Barry Coleman, Colin Favre and Jim Reed. Thursday was the Silver Salver Foursomes for the ladies with a second day of perfect conditions. Winners were Margaret DeVries and partner Beatrice Stephens with nett 75, and runners up were Suellen Eskrigge and her partner, your scribe with 76.5. NTP winners were Sue Britnell, Lorraine Elliot and myself.
Wednesday was a stableford event for the men with surprisingly good conditions, reflected in the results. Peter Gowans and Uwe Morzinek both scored the days best score of 43 points, winning A and B grades respectively. Brian Virtue won C Grade with 39 points and we had two eagles scored on the day – Ray Quinlan scored his on the 7th with a lucky second
Both Saturday and Sunday required quick changes in and out of the wet weather gear. Saturday winners in the men were Tim Callan in A Grade with 3 up, Peter Parfitt in B Grade with 5 up, and Frank Denahy in C Grade with 3 up. In the ladies Jenny Inman won the competition with 2 down. NTP winners were Scott Saunders on both the front nine holes, Chris Duffield and Brent McDonald. Sunday was a late start after the Pennant ladies had been sent off. It was stableford event and a small field. In the men event Carl Rayner won with 37 points, with Brad Eskrigge runner up with 36 points – ahead of a few others on a countback. Sue French won the ladies with 32 points. NTP winners were David Jessup, Brad Eskrigge, Rob Steven and Rosie Jackobi. Don’t forget the VIP Day on Friday and save the date of Saturday July 20 for a special night at the club with Joe Camilleri. Enjoy your golf.

FROM THE MEMBERS’ ROOM
THURSDAY: Christine Brackin showed the rest of the field a clean pair of heels winning the day with a great score of +3. It was a tight tussle for second with Joan Anderson beating Marie Powell on a count back both with a score of square. The NTP on the 5th was won by Beryl Westbrook and the 13th was won by Marg Hales. Saturday Stableford: The best of the ladies was Linda Turner who continued her Pennant form by winning with 31 points from Paulette Payne with 28 points.
Tuesday 9 Hole Par: For the second time in three weeks Frances Searle was the winner on a count back from Cheryl Collings this time both with 19 points. Sunday Stableford: Michael McAllum held off his partner Marianne Bridgart to win on a countback with a score of one up in the wind a drizzling rain. Well done to all that played in the conditions.
MEN Wednesday Stableford: The evergreen Craig Hunter was outstanding winning A Grade with a score of 38 points from Luke Vassallo with 37 points. In B Grade it was a close affair with Bruce Hay taking the honours on a count back from Gavan Clarke both with 35 points. While David Mallett won the NTP on the 7th and Peter Gray won the NTP on the 17th. Cameron Gidley-Baird had a memorable introduction to the club with an eagle on 16. Saturday Stableford: After a night of soaking rain it was apparent the course was going to play tough but Rod Bray and Noel Mullen mastered the conditions to have 38 points with Rod taking out the monthly medal on a count back. The NTPs went to Alan Marsh on the 5th, Lou McFadden on the 13th and Chris Burke on the 17th. 2 Sands Boulevarde, Torquay Clubhouse: 5264 3333 Pro Shop: 5264 3307

TORQUAY GOLF CLUB THE RACV Torquay Resort is officially open and the crowds last Sunday showed up in their thousands to celebrate.

There was plenty of entertainment for both the adults and kids with music from some local talents, face painting, jumping castle and much more, not to forget the competitions that everyone could enter throughout the day. The most popular of course was the tour of the new building. People lined up for their chance to view it all and the second floor is worth the visit alone as everywhere you look you are surrounded by spectacular golf and ocean views. The Sunday golf competition was still on with all the excitement happening on the course for Andrew Carr scoring 40 points to take out the men’s and the ladies’ winner Mickey Knevitt had 41 points. NTPs David Norman, Andrew Carr and Sue Hosking. Michael Orderly hit the jackpot. Rob Schofield scored an eagle on the 14th and Ron Fish the 11th. In this month’s senior’s competition, winners were Angelo Facchini 22 points and Gill Patten 20 points. NTPs Alan Foss and Jeanette Langan. Once again the roast rolls were a hit and on these cold winter days a roll and coffee are extremely warming. Get your name down for the next senior’s day on 24 June. On Tuesday the ladies played for their spot in the Silver Salver foursomes and with a winning
score of 64.5 the team going through to the finals is Trish Morris and Maureen Stuart. Well done ladies and good luck. NTPs Joye Burton and Mandy Buckley. Wednesday, with an A Grade winning score Darren Looker had 41 points. B Grade winner Keith Minney carded 40 points. Bruce Ditchburn took out C Grade with 39 points and for D Grade Terry Lyons scored 38 points. Ken Herald was the best for the seniors with 37 points.

John Brunt back from his overseas holiday has not lost his touch. On the 17th, once again he has taken out the jackpot. Doug McGregor had an eagle on the 11th, must be something about going overseas as Doug too has just returned from his Big Apple trip.

Sport springs eternal with reserve upgrades BY JAMES TAYLOR THE $1.78 million redevelopment of Spring Creek Reserve has been officially launched with a celebration at the Torquay ground on Saturday. The works include new competitionstandard lighting to allow night games on the main oval, as well as a bigger and more flexible function space with retractable walls and new toilets, improved and extended change rooms, umpiresâ€™ rooms, gym and kiosk, and an improved office and administration space. There are also better public toilets and new accessible toilets on ground level, a new balcony with undercover spectatorsâ€™ areas, and a lift for improved accessibility. The upgrade was opened during Torquayâ€™s home game against Drysdale in the Bellarine Football League by Corangamite Federal MP Darren Cheeseman, State Minister for Sport Hugh Delahunty, South Barwon MP Andrew Katos and Surf Coast Shire mayor Libby Coker. The works were funded by $680,000 from the state government, $600,000 from the federal
government, $470,000 from the shire and more than $22,000 from the Torquay Tigers. Mr Cheeseman said the works would attract more teams and visitors to the region, which would boost the local economy and benefit local businesses. â€œNot only is this redevelopment a great deal for our community, it created 50 trades and sub-contractor jobs along the way.â€? Mr Delahunty said the new pavilion was a fantastic addition to a reserve which had been a venue for big games as well as grassroots sports. â€œThis redevelopment provides the perfect opportunity for the Torquay Football Netball Club and other local sports to develop new programs, host bigger sport and community events and form more teams that cater for even more players, especially local juniors and girls.â€? Cr Coker said the upgrade made the reserve a regionally significant recreation facility. â€œSpring Creek Reserve and the clubs that call it home have a proud history, and this upgrade will become an important part of that.â€?

Kona Odyssey changes date BY ALI DEANE
A competitor in the 2013 Kona Odyssey takes on some of the famous single tracks in Forrest. The 2014 event will enjoy a new date, on April 27. Photo: SUPERSPORTIMAGES.COM
MOUNTAIN bikers gearing up for their next Kona Odyssey have two extra months up their sleeves as local event organisers Rapid Ascent push the 2014 event from February to April. With the encouragement of the country fire authority and other emergency services to stage the mountain bike marathon outside peak fire season, competitors will now enjoy more rider-friendly weather when they hit Forrest on April 27. It will be the eighth running of the event that has a reputation of one of Australiaâ€™s most challenging and rewarding mountain bike marathons thanks to the hills of the Otway Ranges and the quality single track in and around Forrest. And with three distances to aim for in the 100 kilometre Kona Odyssey, 50 kilometre Kona Shorty and 15 kilometre Kona Pioneer, plus a bike, food and entertainment expo, there will be something for everyone. Starting and finishing at the Forrest Football Oval in Forrest Victoria, the 100 kilometre marathon will follow the same new looped course of 2013 that brought fast flowing single track and new lungbusting hills to the race. â€œThe new 100 kilometre course flowed even better than the original course from Apollo Bay

and allowed us to intersperse the single track, the hills and the atmosphere of the footy ground more equally across the full distance,â€? Rapid Ascent general manager Sam Maffett said. In amongst the dirt and grime of the 100 kilometre race, the 50 kilometre Kona Shorty races along shorter and slightly easier sections of Forrest single track, and the 15 kilometre Kona Pioneer is perfect for youngsters and first-timers. â€œWe feel that the new April date will provide much more comfortable conditions for participants and avoid having another hot day like we had this year,â€? Maffett said. â€œWith February getting hotter and hotter and the number of high fire danger days on the rise, the authorities have been asking us to move the race for a couple of years in case it generates, or is involved with a bushfire. Ridersâ€™ safety is our highest priority so we are happy to follow their request.â€? Some 4,000 competitors and spectators descend on the township of Forrest for the annual Kona Odyssey Mountain Bike Marathon, now locked in for Sunday April 27, 2014. Entries open in October. Head to konaodyssey. com.au for more information. The Marysville to Melbourne Multisport Challenge has also been rescheduled for 2014, from April 28 to April 6.

Surf Coast FC host the regional hub competition SURF Coast Football Club last Sunday hosted the regional hub, with hundreds of under 7 to under 11 boys and girls from around the region descending on Banyul Warri Fields. Whilst the weather wasn’t kind, and rain showers drifted across the playing fields from time to time, the endeavour of the kids was constant. It was a great day of community sport, with families mixing in from across the region. The Surf Coast FC under 9 boys (playing up in the under 11 competition) scored a draw, and are still undefeated. They again displayed the terrific skills taught to them by coaches Sacha Studer and Anthony Masters. All the other Surf Coast hub teams performed very well as usual and had plenty of fun, with many parents commenting on the friendly and welcoming atmosphere. In the formal junior competition, it was mixed results again this weekend. The girl’s and women’s teams again performed brilliantly. In the under 14s the Surf Coast Blue won 1-0 in a tight contest against a quality Golden Plains team and remain equal at the top of the table. The Surf Coast Yellow fought valiantly but went down against the strong Kardinia team. In the women’s, it was a clean sweep. The women’s division two team won 2-0 against Breakwater, the women’s division one smashed the Bellarine Sharks 17-0 and the Surf Coast Women’s State League team beat the North Sunshine Eagles 5-1. The Surf Coast Women’s State League team is still undefeated on equal points at the top of the table.
In the boys, it was a bit of a topsy-turvy round. The local under 12 boys’ team were beaten but showed the Surf Coast FC spirit, never giving up. The local under 13s boys fought out a great 2-2
draw with Surfside Waves. Yet again the boys gave their all. The metro under 12 boys suffered a narrow loss to the BDSA but are improving every week.
The metro under 14 boys suffered their first loss for the season, going down 4-3 to Barnstoneworth. The under 15s metro boys beat Saint Albans 4-1 in a good performance.
Amy’s Gran Fondo info nights this month AMY’S Gran Fondo returns to the Surf Coast and Colac Otway Shires this September boasting three distances – the 110 kilometre Gran Fondo, 40 kilometre Medio Fondo and the 14 kilometre Piccolo Fondo for individual cyclists and teams.

And for serious riders the fully timed event is a chance to log a result and even qualify for the UCI World Cycling Tour final. To register or for more information head to amysgranfondo.org.au. Surf Coast FC player Alex Fannon escapes the opposition’s clutches.
