GORCC’s role could be absorbed by Surf Coast Shire

LANDSLIDE BY JAMES TAYLOR

THE Great Ocean Road Coast Committee (GORCC) may be relieved of its responsibilities after a motion was passed with unanimous support at last weekend’s Liberal Party state council in Lorne. The motion is for the Coalition government to initiate a pilot for a more efficient management model of specific Victorian council reserves under the Coastal Management Act 1995, specifically the coastal corridor now under the management of GORCC. In the pilot, the 43 kilometres of coastal foreshore that GORCC oversees would be transferred to the Surf Coast Shire.

According to the motion, this would reduce the costs of administration and operation through economies of scale, use of shared resources (both equipment and labour) and more efficient “place management”. It was read at the conference by Lorne party member Gary Allan, who cited a number of examples in Lorne where GORRC had failed to deliver the requirements of the town in an efficient and productive manner. These included: • the inability to improve the Beaurepaire family donated swimming pool to the proposed community models • the failure to resurrect the Swing Bridge in time for Lorne’s peak Christmas holiday period

• the inability to negotiate the location of private and government funded sculpture pieces to be placed on the Lorne foreshore • the decision not to listen to GORCC’s self-selected community reference group through the consultation process of the Point Grey precinct development plan. South Barwon MP Andrew Katos spoke in support of the motion and said, unlike several other Victorian coastal management committees and specifically the Melbourne Bayside precinct, the area that GORRC managed fell totally within the boundaries of a single municipality – the Surf Coast Shire. He said it was an unnecessary duplication of resources and there was growing dissatisfaction from a number of

stakeholders. Delegates at the conference at Mantra Lorne included state cabinet ministers Louise Asher, Terry Mulder, Martin Dixon and Matthew Guy, as well as new Corangamite federal member Sarah Henderson. In years past, the Surf Coast Shire has proposed taking over the management of the coastal land from GORCC, and it is believed the shire presently has the capacity to handle the extra duties. GORCC chief executive officer Richard Davies said the coastal management model was a state government and ministerial matter to address, “and as such, GORCC does not have a view on the motion”. At short notice, Surf Coast Shire mayor Rose Hodge was unavailable to comment.

“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old but on building the new” – Greek philosopher Socrates said this almost 2,500 years ago. These words are just as relevant now as then. I campaigned on a ticket of positive change and I believe this is what the people of Geelong want. I don’t promise to have all the answers from day one but I can pledge my absolute commitment to do all in my power to make Geelong the great city I know it can be. Already I have hit the ground running with 16hour days and I can assure you I will continue to put my all my energy into the job of mayor. I pledge to do my utmost to build on the new to make Geelong a modern, prosperous, liveable 21st century city. I love my home town and I cannot overstate what an honour it is to be representing the people of Geelong. I have enjoyed a successful career around the world but I always have Geelong in my heart and intend to live and work here the rest of my days. I see the role of mayor as one of positive leadership. I passionately believe we can work together as a community to make Geelong one of the great cities of the world. The unprecedented news media and social media coverage of the election result has generated a massive global focus on Geelong. Watch this space. Myself and my fellow councillors are intent on making a positive change for Geelong.

The Bellarine is a special place for anyone who lives here or visits our region.

Community urged to rally for C66 Star of the Sea BY JAMES TAYLOR OPPONENTS to urban development in Spring Creek are hoping history will repeat at the Red Rally Revisited on Tuesday. The event has been scheduled to start at 4.30pm at the Surf Coast Shire’s council chambers in Torquay, about 90 minutes before the meeting in which councillors will respond to the independent panel report to Amendment C66. Contrary to the shire’s position in C66, the Planning Panel Victoria report recommended the land one kilometre west of Duffields Road be rezoned as Urban Growth Zone for development.

The panel stated the shire did not attempt to provide strategic justification for its change to the long-held view of urban growth in the Spring Creek valley, and “in responding to the community concern expressed at a point in time, it has radically altered a long held planning direction to the detriment of future planning of the township�. The “point in time� refers to the original Red Rally, which drew between 2,500-3,000 people to Spring Creek Common in February 2009 to protest against plans for development in the valley. More than 100 people have confirmed on Facebook that they will attend Red Rally Revisited, and 3228 Residents Association president Sid Pope

has exhorted the community to show their support. “Do you really care for the rights of this community to be heard or do you expect a few of us to do the work for you? Stand up and be heard.� The developers behind Torquay Green, who own land in the valley, have again rolled out a billboard critical of the Surf Coast Shire’s handling of the issue. Torquay Green landowner Cameron Shephard said the mobile billboard’s “time to act� message told the council it should resolve Amendment C66 once and for all. “The independent panel was decisive – it said that the council’s plan for growth was wrong and Torquay Green’s plan was right.�

Banyul Warri Fields shortlisted for role in Asian Cup BY JAMES TAYLOR TORQUAY’S Banyul Warri Fields is in the running to be a training base for Australia’s biggest ever soccer tournament. The Surf Coast Shire’s civic and community precinct has been announced as one of 27 venues across Australia shortlisted to host one of the 16 teams competing in the 2015 Asian Cup. Shire councillors Rod Nockles and Brian McKiterick said the Surf Coast would provide the ideal Asian Cup training base. “This is a vote of confidence in the Surf Coast’s ability to provide the infrastructure and community support necessary to take up this exciting opportunity. The Surf Coast boasts access to world class training facilities and accommodation, world famous beaches... recreation and a range of team building activities,� Cr Nockles said. Cr McKiterick said the rapidly growing football culture and welcoming nature of the Surf Coast

community complemented the area’s facilities and natural assets. “Soccer is now one of the most popular sports on the Surf Coast, which is home to one of regional

Victoria’s largest clubs in terms of participation. “An Asian Cup training base on the Surf Coast is an important opportunity for our region, but also a significant opportunity for a national team to have the best possible preparation for this important tournament.� Surf Coast FC president Joe Taylor said if the shire did secure a team, it would be great for not only the sport but also the economy of Torquay. Local Organising Committee (LOC) chief executive officer Michael Brown said the LOC would prepare an information brochure that would be sent to all participating teams to consider as part of their preparations for the tournament. Twelve nations have already qualified – Australia as hosts, defending champions Japan, South Korea and North Korea, along with the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Iran, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and Uzbekistan. A further four spots are at stake: one in the AFC Challenge Cup and a further three in the final round of qualifying.

makes aged care move CATHOLIC Homes has not waited for the question about aged care in The Sands estate to be resolved, and has moved ahead with its own plans for an aged care facility at its Star of the Sea Village in Torquay. A notice for an application for the construction of a residential building (aged care facility) at the retirement village at 1 Headland Drive was published in today’s edition of the Surf Coast Times. A town planning report prepared for Catholic Homes by Gerard Holwell stated the facility will be located in the south east corner of the Star of Sea property, and contain 96 single bed units in three separate “pods�. The section fronting Horseshoe Bend Road will be double storey, with provision for a first floor pod of 32 beds and a similar number at ground floor level. The pod at the rear of that structure will have 32 beds. There will also be a 54-space car park. Bill Shaw from Star of the Sea spoke at the hearing of submissions committee meeting in November into The Sands’ proposal, and described The Sands plan as a “retrofit of a failed hotel�. He said the planned building at Star of the Sea had the “huge advantage of high aged care coexisting with a retirement village�. He said Catholic Homes was a not-forprofit provider with a great deal of experience in the industry.

BY JAMES TAYLOR TORQUAY was a special place for 15 young burn survivors to share new experiences this week that will help them through their long recovery. The KIDS Foundation team brought the youth support camp – known as Camp TANGO – to the seaside town on Monday for the four-day event. TANGO is an acronym for – together achieving new goals and opportunities – which is the focus of the camp. This is the first time the camp has been held in Torquay and the new location was filled with lots of exciting activities thanks to the support

of local businesses. Activities included a surfing lesson with Go Ride A Wave at Torquay back beach on Monday, a trip to Adventure Park on Tuesday and a visit to the Cotton On Foundation yesterday. The camp is open to young burn survivors and children with life changing injuries from around Australia. KIDS Foundation founder Susie O’Neill said every young person that attended Camp TANGO would be provided with increased opportunities and new skill development to improve the quality of their lives and enable them to move forward. “The camp provides a safe, fun and supportive

Retailers and residents asked to browse council business survey BY JAMES TAYLOR SURF Coast Shire is running surveys of retailers and residents in Torquay to help local businesses plan for the future. The surveys of retailers and residents are being run as part of the Revitalising Rural Retail project, funded through the state government’s Streetlife initiative. The programs for Torquay and Lorne are being funded jointly through the council and the state government. Torquay ward councillor Brian McKiterick said the project would gather information that would guide business planning and initiatives aimed at

supporting local retail. “This research will inform local business planning as well as the business support and economic development activities of groups like Torquay Commerce and Tourism and the council.� Lorne ward councillor Clive Goldsworthy said the information from residents and retailers will be important in guiding initiatives that are aimed at further strengthening local retail. “This in turn has positive impacts on the wider community.� Revitalising Rural Retail is running in eight other Victorian towns. Rural Councils Victoria, which is helping to coordinate the program, has also released a Rural

Retail Handbook to support the survey. The handbook lists a number of issues facing the industry, including escape spending to nearby regional cities or internet sales, declining population, limited household spending, economic uncertainty and changes to tourist and visitation patterns. It suggests a number of ideas for rural retailers to try, including free Wi-Fi at cafĂŠs and bookshops, workshop coops and hot desks in empty buildings, and in-store and online suggestion boxes. The survey for Torquay retailers can be found at surveymonkey.com/s/TorquayRetailers and surveymonkey.com/s/LorneResidents for Lorne residents.

The Bell Street Fiesta is a big day for business in Torquay, and the Surf Coast Shire is looking to further improve retail conditions in the town and also in Lorne.

Councillors expense figures released BY JAMES TAYLOR THE Surf Coast Shire has released figures on how much its councillors have claimed on expenses during their first 12 months in office. Given the hubbub raised in federal politics earlier this year, it is certain none of the nine councillors would have tried to claim a wedding, but internet, mobile phone and travel costs can be reimbursed under the rules. For the period between October 27 last year and October 31 this year, all councillors received a base allowance (including superannuation) of $24,347. As befitting her role as mayor, Cr Libby Coker’s allowance was bumped up by more than $50,000 for a final figure of $74,757. Cr Coker’s final remuneration is consequently the highest of all councillors, at $81,600 – nearly $43,000 higher than second-placed Cr Clive Goldsworthy’s $38,615. Cr David Bell’s $25,624 was the lowest final figure, just below fellow Torquay ward councillor Eve Fisher’s $25,690. Given his position as Lorne ward councillor and the necessary car trips to Surf Coast Shire meetings and events, Cr Goldsworthy understandably claimed the highest amount of travel expenses ($12,498). Cr Fisher and Cr Bell claimed about $500 or less each in travel for the 12-month period and were also bottom of the mobile phone bill, finishing within three dollars of each other ($439 and $442 respectively). Mayoral phone calls put Cr Coker on top, at $2,663. Cr Rose Hodge claimed no travel expenses at all, but had the highest amount of internet expenses ($785). At the other end of the scale, Cr Goldsworthy claimed just $177 for internet use, which all took place between October 27 last year and June 30 this year.

Torquay scouts say thanks for Nepal trip BY JAMES TAYLOR INTREPID scouts from Torquay have thanked the community and sponsors for supporting their trip to Nepal. On Tuesday night, the 1st Torquay Scout Troop held a thank you event in their hall in Spring Creek Reserve, which included a brief report from the Scouts and a photo display. On their September trip, the group experienced trekking in the Annapurna region, participated in local rubbish removal and visited a local kinder-12 school. They also experienced world heritage, cultural and spiritual sights in their 16-day adventure. The experience of spending two

weeks in remote communities within a developing country has helped the Scouts to respect and learn about other communities. The scouts saw how communities differ across the world, developed self-reliance, courage, determination, resilience and responsibility for self, and have returned with first-hand knowledge about some local and global challenges. A high level of scout craft and hiking skills was achieved during the 150-kilometre, 10-day trek to Annapurna base camp, located 4,200 metre above sea level in the Himalayan foothills. Significant discussion and education took place around topics such as the local to global connection of food miles, processed and packaged food versus locally grown,

various water purification methods, local employment from tourism, and rubbish minimisation and waste disposal. A school visit in Dhampus was a highlight, where the scouts visited various classes, met the teachers and donated collected items of clothing, stationery, sunglasses, money for sports equipment, and hygiene products including toothbrushes and soap. First Torquay Scout Group welcomes girls and boys from the age of six upwards. For more information, phone Desley McKnight on 0411 986 779 or Liz Haines on 0427 258 772, or email dvriens@ bigpond.com.

Shire seeks clarity on coastal strategy BY JAMES TAYLOR

THE Surf Coast Shire is hoping for more clarity over who pays for what in the new Victorian Coastal Strategy. Reviewed every five years, the strategy was prepared by the Victorian Coastal Council (VCC), which is appointed under the Coastal Management Act 1995 as the peak body for the strategic planning and management of Victoria’s coast and to provide advice to Minister for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith. The draft strategy affirms the Victorian planning benchmarks for sea level rise – not less than 0.2 metres by 2040, not less than 0.4 metres by 2070 and not less than 0.8 metres by 2100. Development in sand dunes, in low lying coastal

areas and in identified coastal hazard areas subject to inundation will be avoided. Submissions to the draft strategy closed yesterday, and councillors endorsed the shire’s submission to the VCC at last month’s meeting. The submission identifies financing coastal infrastructure and management as both a key issue and a priority action in the draft strategy and something that was “undoubtedly of significant concern for coastal councils”. “The draft strategy offers little comfort to local government on funding increased costs for infrastructure replacement and upgrade due to climate change (sea level rise, storm surge).” It also noted the Crown did not have an obligation to reduce the impacts of coastal hazards, sea level rise and other natural processes on private property,

“which raised the question of who is responsible”. Cr Margot Smith said the strategy contained some very important issues for the council. “It talks to who’s going to take responsibility for various things. “This document requires action, and it’s important that action comes. “It requires funding, and it’s important that the government gets behind it.” Cr Libby Coker said the draft would help to define what the various roles were. “There’s been a strong focus on community engagement, and we need to know what our community thinks and what they think is important.” A final draft is expected to be presented to Mr Smith by March 2014, and considered by state cabinet in June 2014.

Inaction could leave acid river sore for summer BY HAMISH BROOKS THE Anglesea River has had heart burn since early September, when hundreds of fish died in its waters following natural acidic runoff in its catchment. The state and local agencies with the power to administer some metaphoric antacid are yet to do so and many residents and businesses in the town are worried about how a dead river system will impact on Anglesea’s economy, which is heavily reliant on tourism, in the short and long term when the town fills with people over summer. The Anglesea River Support Action Group (ARSAG), a community lobby group, is proposing

opening the river mouth so that high tides can flush the system in the lead up to Christmas. They have been in discussions with various agencies since the fish kill in September yet feel the river mouth is as likely to yawn open from boredom as it is through action instigated by the Surf Coast Shire, Corangamite Catchment Management Authority (CMA) or state government. ARSAG member and former Department of Environment and Primary Industries Arthur Rylah Institute employee John McKenzie, who conducted fish counts for the institute following fish kills in the river in 2010 and 2011 and has years of experience working with estuarine systems, said something

needed to be done. “I’ve been advocating that the mouth be opened but I am, as well as everyone else, a little unclear on what the effects would be. “I can’t see a lot that can go wrong and I can see potential benefits, like the water quality coming back and maybe some fish coming back in. “My priority is to get the water quality back so the kids can swim in the river over summer. “I can’t see it being detrimental to the system.” Mr McKenzie said the next three weeks offered the last opportunity where tide heights might be adequate to flush the system before Christmas. He was speaking with the Surf Coast Times as

Corangamite CMA began a re-snagging program in the river to improve fish habitat. “I find it a bit ironical that they’re doing a resnagging program when it’s a dead river; the money for it is coming from fishing licence fees presumably and I’m sure fishers are keen to get back to fishing the river. When the river is in good condition it contains in excess of 20 species of fish – it’s a valuable resource.” A Surf Coast Shire spokesperson said the shire was seeking advice on the best course of action from the Corangamite CMA. It is understood both parties were scheduled to meet tomorrow about the issue. See Letters, pages 26-27.

Relay tops $200,000 target THE Surf Coast Relay For Life raised more than $45,000 last weekend. The event at the Surf Coast Shire’s recreational precinct at North Torquay capped off a year of fundraising efforts by the 18 teams taking part. Organising committee chairman Darrel Brewin said the tally for the 24-hour rally was $44,922, with more than $10,000 expected to be added as teams settle their fundraising efforts in the next few weeks. “We wanted to raise $26,000 to reach our target of $200,000 over the three annual relay events at Torquay. Congratulations to everyone involved for this great result and for their commitment to the cause of supporting Cancer Council Victoria’s efforts to support people dealing with cancer, raising awareness and finding a cure.” Torquay’s Activities For Life group, with more than $6,000, took the award for the highest fundraising team.

Summer is now ofďŹ cially â&#x20AC;&#x153;locked inâ&#x20AC;?, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the downhill run to Christmas and our thousands of holiday visitors are only weeks away, what a great time of the year it is here in Lorne. Many would say that normally itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit like the lull before the storm but this year there has been something on almost every weekend and the one just gone was no exception. For the past two weeks the town has been host to thousands of schoolies and our local Police Sergeant David Cooper and his team are to be congratulated for the work and extra presence through the entire program. It was great to hear that part of their program involved educating our visitors as to what is acceptable behaviour. From all reports it appeared to be an exceptionally well behaved group of young visitors to our town and well done to our local police. Last Saturday saw the Great Victorian Bike ride and its 5000 participants descend down the Deans Marsh Road into Lorne for a coffee and refreshments then onto to Torquay along the Great Ocean Road for an overnight stay. The 610 kilometres started at the Blue Lake in Mount Gambier on the 23rd of November and ďŹ nished in Geelong on the 1st of December. To add to the diversity of the weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s events, Mantra played host to the Liberal Party of Australia (Victoria Branch) 157th State Council. After our State politicians and their drivers navigated the bike riders, scheduled their arrivals around the road closures and shared a facility with the schoolies, it was down to business with their party faithful in huge numbers. Business included some very interesting State Motions that included three that were successfully put forward from the Lorne and Polwarth branches of the Liberal Party. The most topical was the motion that South Barwon MP Mr Andrew Katos spoke very strongly for, which was â&#x20AC;&#x153;That this State Council calls on the Victorian Coalition Government to initiate a â&#x20AC;&#x153;pilotâ&#x20AC;? for a more efďŹ cient management model of speciďŹ c Coastal Reserves under the Coastal Reserves Management Act 1995, speciďŹ cally the coastal corridor currently under the management of the Great Ocean Road Coast Committeeâ&#x20AC;?. The motion was carried unanimously! In closing I would like to congratulate Shirley Causon on becoming a life member of the Lorne Angling and Aquatic Club at their Annual General Meeting on Saturday. Shirley has always been one of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;unsung heroesâ&#x20AC;? of the Club and her enormous work behind the scenes had the announcement very well received by the members â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Well done Shirl!

IAN STEWART CHAIRMAN COMMITTEE FOR LORNE

School Leavers 2013 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Welcome Visitors to Lorne The week that everyone used to dread â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Schoolies W Week, is now been and gone. But what a different week is has been in 2013 compared to previous years. Over 400 School Leavers spent the week in town celebrating the end of their secondary school years and from all reports, were welcome, well behaved, visitors in our town. In past years particularly around the 2006 to 2010 period, Schoolies week was a time when many Lorne residents left town and one could drive around to witness the signs of vandalism and unruly behavior. In 2009, residents in the Community were issued with an unofďŹ cial â&#x20AC;&#x153;Schoolies Survival Guideâ&#x20AC;?, a reference to the rights of residents and a list of contact numbers should community members be besieged by loud noise and other anti-social behaviors. The Surf Coast Shire responded to community concerns at that time and developed an alternative â&#x20AC;&#x153;brandâ&#x20AC;? for Schoolies, called â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good Times, Great Breaksâ&#x20AC;?. An incredible amount of planning and collaboration has gone into creating and managing an event in which risks are minimised and the School Leavers are taught to understand the responsibilities that go with being a guest in our community and to respect the place and its people. This year we believe we have seen the results of all the hard work. In speaking with Sgt David Cooper he said, that from the Policeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective this year had been â&#x20AC;&#x153;amazingâ&#x20AC;?. There was a negligible level of trouble. Sure, there are always some instances where things arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite right, but compared to previous years the 2013 event has been very successful. He put the success of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program down to a number of factors. The most important was the strong partnership and communication between the stakeholders who are involved in the School Leavers Program. These stakeholders include Surf Coast Shire, in particular the Youth Development Team, Police, accommodation providers and the Youth Services agencies such as Red Frogs (an internationally recognised Schoolies support network), YSAS (Youth Support and Advocacy Service) and Student Life. The following information might help to put the whole program and the planning into perspective.

David Cooper stated that whilst a tremendous amount of time had been spent with the stakeholders in planning for the School Leavers event, it was the constant communication between all stakeholders during the event that contributed to the success of this week. An initiative in recent years, put in place by our $AVID #OOPER HAS BEEN THE @-EET AND 'REETv 4HE Police meet with every school leaver who comes to stay in Lorne. At these meetings the Police set the boundaries, letting the School Leavers know that they are guests in our community and setting expectations about what behavior is expected and what behavior will not be tolerated. The result of these initiatives and the collaboration between all stakeholders has resulted in a safe, incident free School Leavers week which has been of great beneďŹ t to many business in our town, businesses which rely of events such as School Leavers to balance the books after the quiet winter months. Sgt Cooper said he was â&#x20AC;&#x153;proud of what had been achieved by all stakeholders working closely together and he was conďŹ dent about where the School Leaver program was headedâ&#x20AC;?. Congratulations to all involved: Surf Coast Shire, Lorne Police and the youth support services for managing a safe and enjoyable School Leavers event with a positive outcome for our community.

Juliet was born in Quetta, Pakistan, the daughter of a British army ofďŹ cer in a Gurkha regiment. She spent the ďŹ rst six years of her life moving between Pakistan and India and became ďŹ&#x201A;uent in Hindi and as well as speaking some Urdu, most of which she has now forgotten! Juliet has lived in many countries, indeed she proudly claims that she has been fortunate enough to join the limited few who can claim to have set foot on all ďŹ ve continents. After schooling in Malaysia, Singapore and Hong Kong, she returned to England for her senior years and then went to Paris as an â&#x20AC;&#x153;au pairâ&#x20AC;?, at the same time studying for a Diploma of French History at the Sorbonne. Juliet never grew accustomed to the cold European climate so when in 1968 an opportunity arose to immigrate to Australia she jumped at the chance. Juliet ďŹ rst visited Lorne in the mid 80â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moving down to live there after retirement in 1999. She soon became immersed in Lorne community life, sitting on the Lorne Hospital Community Liaison Committee, the Surf Coast Shire (SCS) committee set up to review and expand dog by-laws, the SCS Schoolies Working Group and as one of the inaugural committee members for the Lorne Sculpture Exhibition. In 2001 she helped start up the Lorne Independent and saw it through its early years as Business Manager. However Juliet feels that her greatest achievement was being the secretary, treasurer and principle fund raiser of the Lorne Skatepark. The project turned out to be much larger than originally envisaged because in order to gain State and Shire funding, the construction was required to be large enough to cater for tourists. Over the years Juliet has found the hustle and bustle of peak holiday periods in Lorne somewhat trying, so in 2012 bought a house in Deans Marsh, but as she says, Lorne is still only 20 minutes away.

Tracey on a journey BY JAMES TAYLOR FRESHWATER Creek resident Carl Tracey has been chosen as one of the two chaperones of next year’s Premier’s Spirit of Gallipoli Prize tour to Lemnos, Gallipoli and the Western Front. Last week, it was announced the teacher at Sacred Heart College would accompany the group of 12 year 9 and 10 students on the overseas study tour of significant sites where Australians have served in war. Mr Tracey said his application sprung from him helping a student applying for the 2013 SOAP tour. “She described it as the greatest experience of her life, and that really piqued my interest. “I think it’d be really amazing for students on the tour to experience the ANZAC spirit, and also a great honour for me.” He said the trip would also hopefully remind young Australians about the contribution they could make to Australia’s future – where mateship and acting selflessly was an automatic response. As one of the SOAP chaperones, one of Mr Tracey’s first duties will be to travel to Melbourne to play a role in selecting the 12 final students who will undertake the 2014 SOAP tour. Minister for Veterans’ Affairs Hugh Delahunty said both chaperones had previous experience caring for students away from home and would fulfil their roles admirably. He said less than a year away from the official start of the ANZAC Centenary (August 2014 – November 2018), interest in the Premier’s Spirit of ANZAC Prize was at an all-time high. “There have been a record 472 entries for the

Premier’s Spirit of ANZAC Prize which is about triple the number received in 2011. “I congratulate all our Year 9 and 10 students who have entered the competition and I encourage all young Victorians to learn more about Australia’s ANZAC legacy.” Regional finalists who are not on the SOAP overseas tour will travel to Canberra in 2014 for a study tour of the Australian War Memorial, Parliament House, the National Film and Sound Archive and the National Archives of Australia.

Moto God has landed BY ALI DEANE

IF YOU said Darren Taylor didn’t know bikes, you don’t know Darren Taylor. The smiley motocross racer has spent most of his life in the industry, with 20 years on the Australian competition circuit, roles in motorcycle sales, dealer principal, national sales manager and running a top 10 national motorcycle dealership in Melbourne. It seems only natural then that he brings motorbike enthusiasts and visitors to the Surf Coast a one stop pit-stop for moto-branded apparel, helmets and accessories, plus the region’s only bike rental centre, The Moto God. “I’m pretty pumped. “I grew up in a motorbike family. My dad raced, I raced, my brother has multiple national titles, and mum and dad had the bike shop in Dandenong since 1971, where we all worked. “I moved the family down here because we wanted to move to the coast now that I’ve retired from racing. “The Moto God has been in planning for a long time, and there’s been a lot of anticipation to get the doors open.” The Moto God specialises in motorbike, scooter and electric bike rental, with offerings including big bike cruisers, a choice of scooters, and a range of electric bikes. Mr Taylor plans to expand the fleet to include more road bikes and eventually dirt bikes. “Biking’s very seasonal; dirt-biking is popular from Easter to October, so we’re

focusing on road bikes while the weather’s good. There are plenty of bike owners in Torquay. So The Moto God has riding gear for them, and bike rentals for when their friends visit and want to join them for a ride, but don’t have a spare bike. “We’re also attracting international enthusiasts, with some bikes already booked. “The Great Ocean Road is the pinnacle of road rides in the Moto world, so to set up at the start of the Great Ocean Road was the dream.” When renting a bike or scooter from The Moto God for one or multiple days, riders can travel as far as they like, as long as they pay for their own fuel, and have a motorbike license. Electric bikes do not require a license, so they are perfect for getting around town. The range of products and apparel in store include Bell custom helmets, One Industries clothing, Roland Sands Design leathers and gloves and Troy Lee Designs clothing and accessories. The Moto God can be found at 17 Pearl Street, Torquay, check out their website and book online at themotogod.com.au or give them a call on 5261 5222. Pop in for their grand opening this Friday night from 5-7pm, to meet the team Darren and Darci Taylor, enjoy drinks and nibbles, and check out their grand opening deals.

news 11 Campaigners take their message to Henderson BY JAMES TAYLOR CORANGAMITE’S new federal member was visited twice in two days last week by campaigners looking to bring her attention to issues in the community. Andrew Vandenberg, Margo Hobba, Mark Harwood and Perry Mills from GetUp! made a trip to Sarah Henderson’s new office in Waurn Ponds on November 25 to deliver the report on behalf of the electorate’s 5,322 members of the online activist group. In order, the report listed climate change, asylum seekers, an equitable tax system and an independent media as the four issues that were of most concern. In a joint media release, the four GetUp! members stated Ms Henderson declared her support for the Howard government commitment to see 20 per cent of all energy come from renewable energy sources by 2020, supported a return to the pre-2007 situation when people smugglers were sending very few boats, said the government would be reviewing the entire tax system, and said she would not support privatisation of the ABC. The following day (November 26) was the national NBN Day of Action, with people visiting the offices of MPs across the country to deliver a copy of the 270,000-signature strong petition supporting the former Labor government’s fibre to the home (FTTH) model. In response to the petition, Ms Henderson thanked the petitioners for their interest but said the Coalition’s NBN – which is based on a fibre to the node (FTTN) model – would be delivered sooner, cheaper and more affordably. “All households and businesses in Corangamite should have access to broadband with download data rates of between 25 and 100 megabits per second by the end of 2016. By the end of 2019, the government expects the NBN to be complete.”

Expressions of interest open for Anglesea resale shed BY JAMES TAYLOR

$5 . 00

Spend p $50* or more and get Sorbent Toilet Tissue 24pk for $5.00

2))1250$/35,&(

THE Surf Coast Shire has opened expressions of interest to any community group interested in taking over the operation of the Anglesea Landfill Resale Shed. A rolling trial of the shed began in April, with the Anglesea and District Men’s Shed opening the facility to the public for four hours every Saturday. Ninety per cent of the proceeds from the sale of reusable items have gone towards community groups and projects, with the remaining 10 per cent retained by the council and put towards waste education programs. The first three-month trial generated $3,157 through the sale of items, which were categorised as 50 per cent furniture, 20 per cent appliances, 10 per cent building materials, 10 per cent miscellaneous and 10 per cent unusual (such as a jet ski, a boat hull and an aircraft luggage container). A report presented to councillors stated the best

solution for the future operation of the resale shed was for it to be operated by community groups or not-for-profit organisations at no cost to the shire. It also suggested community groups be invited to submit an expression of interest into how they proposed to operate the shed and how profits will be used, and asking any tenderers for the operation of the landfill and transfer station to supply rates for operating the resale shed. Councillors endorsed the report at their November 26 meeting, and Cr Margot Smith said the shed had been well received by the community. “About 2,000 kilograms of what would have been waste has been diverted. “One person’s trash is another person’s treasure.” Cr Libby Coker acknowledged former shire councillor Jim Tutt for his efforts towards the project. Cr Heather Wellington suggested that as the Anglesea landfill serviced the entire shire, the funds generated through the shed could be given to community groups from across the shire.

Groups share in shire’s small grants program BY JAMES TAYLOR MORE than $34,000 has been given to community organisations in this year’s second round of the Surf Coast Shire’s small grants program. Of the 57 applications to the September funding round, 33 were successful, with six qualifying for grants of more than $1,000 each. These are: • $5,000 for the Torquay RSL to hire a professional event manager for the 2014 ANZAC Day parade to coach and train volunteers who will then have appropriate skills to ensure celebrations for the centenary of the ANZAC landings in 2015 are professional and well managed • $3,500 for Winchelsea’s Barwon Park (managed by the National Trust) to re-establish the orchard at Barwon Park Mansion with about 44 trees (apples, pears, quince, plums and figs) which will be harvested for jam, preserves and cider • $2,000 for Green Mums 3228 for support of the Fruit Salad Street project, in which residents will plant, maintain and harvest from heritage fruit trees on nature strips

• Anglesea Community Garden, which received $1,500 to complete a shelter used on working bee days with walls and side blinds and to connect a rainwater tank to the roof • $1,200 for the Anglesea Recreation and Sport Club for the restoration of a small fishing boat for the children’s playground area in the Lions Park Anglesea • $1,158 for the Anglesea Surf Life Saving Club to purchase two buoys for the 2.5 kilometre course in the Rock2Ramp Ocean Swim. Surf Coast Shire endorsed the grants at their meeting last month. Cr Libby Coker said the grants had gone to 33 very worthy projects. “They’ve gone to a number of different groups who have really got a kickstart, and it is always a pleasure to see these groups accept their grants and hear from them.” Funding is available for communitybased projects or activities that encourage and enable the participation of a wide variety of local residents, address an important community need, and encourage and enable groups or individuals across the shire to collaborate and share knowledge, skills and resources.

Bowden family walks into new job BY TIFFANY PILCHER

SURF mad Tane Bowden, 12, and his mother Heidi haven’t lived in Torquay for very long but you may have already spied them walking around town delivering the Surf Coast Times. Originally from Auckland, Heidi moved to Torquay two months ago from Sorrento with Tane and her other avid surfer son McKenzie, 17. Tane is already making his mark, winning the 12 and under boys division at the Rip Curl Grom Search in October this year. Heidi said she decided to work with the Surf Coast Times with Tane to help him earn some extra cash. “We’ve done two runs so far and first started because Tane wants to get an iPhone and a bit of spending money for himself as well. “We were actually really surprised with how good the money was, you just get on your feet, go for a

walk and earn money – it’s great. “It’s also a really well organised run which we love, it makes it really easy.” She said she has settled in well and is thoroughly enjoying calling Torquay home. “We came to Torquay to housesit one time and the boys just loved the place and the surf of course so it made sense to move. “It’s a great community with really friendly, proactive people. We love living here.” The Surf Coast Times and Bellarine Times does not use a distribution company, but employs local people directly to distribute our publications. This allows us to pay walkers up to three times more than other publications to distribute the paper. It also allows us to monitor the reliability of the distribution firsthand.

Businesses urged to get involved in the community BY JAMES TAYLOR

A FAMILY business expert has encouraged Torquay companies to think not of what their customers could do for them, but what they can do for their customers. Bill Winter was the guest speaker at the Torquay Rotary Club’s first business breakfast, held at the Wyndham Resort Torquay on Thursday. Mr Winter has a vast background in private companies, has worked with many family businesses and sits on three family business boards as the non-family member. He said Rotary was a prime example of the value of being involved in the community. “I guess the question I ask people is, ‘are you a giver or a taker?’ And there’s a hell of a lot of takers; that’s what I come across. “How much time have you got to be a giver?” With 16,000 small businesses in the G21 region, Mr Winter said companies – especially those in

traditional markets – needed to have a “competitive advantage” to bring in customers. “Do you want to be another one of the same?” He said managers should put time and effort into helping community organisations – for example, by joining their board – and should encourage their staff to do the same. “You just never know where these things can come to your business – it builds up your business reputation, but you don’t want to go into it thinking, ‘what am I going to get out of it?’ “As a small business, your competitive advantage, really, is to get involved in the local community because it’s a tight-knit community.” He said good examples of businesses that had embraced the idea of giving something back and had prospered as a result were shoe manufacturer TOMS (which donates a pair of shoes to Africa for every pair sold) and Thankyou Water (where every bottle provides at least one month’s safe water to someone in need).

A SHEEP producer network established by the state government 15 years ago has boosted the industry by $50.1 million since it began, according to Agriculture and Food Security Minister Peter Walsh. Mr Walsh said an independent analysis of the Bestwool/Bestlamb (BWBL) network found it had increased membersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; farm profits by an average of $7,100 a year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Coalition government is focused on increasing the productivity and profitability of farmers and initiatives like this help to achieve that,â&#x20AC;? Mr Walsh said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;BWBL members pay a fee to be allocated a specialist coordinator and to take part in regular group sessions, such as farm tours, pasture walks, on-farm demonstrations, technical presentations and group discussions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a result of this shared research and knowledge almost 96 per cent of BWBL members have changed practices on their farms to become more productive, mostly around grazing management, animal nutrition and reproductive performance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a fantastic result for our sheep producers and the entire Victorian economy.â&#x20AC;? Winchelsea based BYV Wool Buyers and Brokers director David Pink said the BWBL network is a great initiative â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any positive contribution to improve productivity and quality of both wool and lamb production is a great step forward,â&#x20AC;? Mr Pink said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wool and lamb growers getting together with industry professionals is a great initiative, this program facilitates open discussions and on-farm demonstrations to exchange ideas and promote better farming practices resulting in

increased yields. Mr Walsh said BWBL was funded through a partnership between the Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI), Australian Wool Innovation and Meat and Livestock Australia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The independent analysis showed BWBL provided a cost benefit of $3.80 for every $1 invested. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since coming into government the Victorian Coalition has increased funding for the program through the Growing Food and Fibre initiative, which has supported a growing network of on-farm demonstrations to further boost the impact of the program for producers,â&#x20AC;? Mr Walsh said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thanks to DEPIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support, the number of Bestwool/Bestlamb members has grown from 1,470 in 2010 to 2,385 members in 2013. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Victorian Coalition government is committed to helping our stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s farmers to become more productive and more profitable. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have also set a goal for Victoria to double its food and fibre production levels by 2030.â&#x20AC;?

Solar boat whiz wins title

BY ALI DEANE

SURF Coast Secondary College science student Daniel Rolfe has been building and racing solar boats for most of his high school life. After coming close for the past four years, the year 10 student landed upon the perfect design, a three-hulled trimaran he named Tri-hard, which last month took out first prize in the Australian-International Model Solar Challenge at Scienceworks. The win didn’t come easily. The final adjustments to the gear box were required the night before, and the day of the finals presented some unexpected challenges. “I ran out of time for testing because I ended up only finishing the boat the night before the race,” Daniel said. “It was basically the same boat that I used for the state competition, but I reduced the weight by a fair bit, made a gearbox because the motor was lacking in torque and refined the hull shape. “The trimaran design gives stability while also keeping size and weight to a minimum. “But the whole front of the boat snapped off just before the first races which was barely fixed in time and the boat nosedived a few times – earning me the “best submarine” award – but it was definitely a good feeling. “I was hoping to place at least forth and it took a moment for it to sink in; it’s been just out of reach for four years so I wasn’t expecting it especially after all of the problems I had to face on the day.” Rolfe said he hoped to continue building and designing solar boats and planned on competing again in 2014. “Nobody has won twice in a row, so I guess that’s something to aim for. “I want to thank my good friend Jack for helping out in Surf Coast Secondary College’s Daniel Rolfe (right) has taken out the coveted Australianthe absence of my teammate (Jake), and my teacher Barry International Model Solar Challenge at Scienceworks and is pictured here with his winning solar boat, and step-in team mate Jack Reither. (Plant) for putting up with me for all these years.”

Illegal fishermen snapped up in Swan Bay BY JAMES TAYLOR TWO men have recently appeared in Geelong Magistrate’s Court for exceeding the catch limit for snapper from Swan Bay near Queenscliff. A 51-year-old from Winchelsea and 55-year-old from Deans Marsh pleaded guilty to taking in excess of 60 snapper in March this year. Both men were convicted and fined $1,000 and $1,500 respectively. In addition, both men were ordered to pay $1,000 compensation for the illegally taken fish and were prohibited from fishing until March 2014. Fisheries Victoria regional fisheries officer Paul Millar said the men were fishing at Swan Bay in March when intercepted by officers from the agency. “The men caught 62 snapper that night, which is a large quantity and demonstrated a blatant disregard for the law. This is a great result for Victoria’s snapper stocks, particularly the compensation order. “This result reminds people that taking too many fish is a serious matter and significant penalties apply to those who are willing to take the risk.” Meanwhile, Fisheries Victoria has strengthened its force of officers patrolling Victorian waters with the addition of 12 specially trained staff posted across the state. Eight fisheries officers (including one senior officer) will be based in Geelong, Apollo Bay, Portland, Tatura and Mallacoota. Mr Walsh said the new Fisheries officers would join teams patrolling areas popular with snapper anglers over the remainder of the season as well as other fishing hot-spots. Anyone who suspects illegal fishing activity is urged to contact the 24 hour fisheries offence reporting hotline 13FISH (133474). See “Fresh Fisheries officers chip in” page 25.

Golf fundraising adroitly handled

FRIDAY 27 DECEMBER 2013 8KM – 4KM –1.6KM EVENTS ANGLESEA, VICTORIA

BY JAMES TAYLOR

Anglesea Motor Yacht Club and local community groups present the inaugural ROO RUN.

5.30PM, FRIDAY 27 DECEMBER

A CHARITY golf day in Barwon Heads last month has helped push fundraising efforts for the Geelong Community Foundation to more than $650,000. The 12th annual event organised by Adroit Insurance Group drew 172 players to 13th Beach Golf Links and raised $90,000. The foundation retains donations as capital in order to build a perpetual and substantial fund, with the income generated from the capital used to support disadvantaged people in the Geelong district. This year, $656,000 was distributed to 45

charitable organisations across the region covering a range of community needs and interests, such as education, training, research, community wellbeing and support for the aged, families, health, youth and the arts. Adroit Insurance Group managing director Andrew Locke said the company was proud to contribute to the Geelong Community Foundation, which in turn assisted an everincreasing number of people in need across the community. At this year’s golf day, the Crawford team of Ted Aldridge, David Arthur, Colin Baker and Nick Baker won the event and took home

the Meatball Cup, named in honour of late Adroit Insurance Group director Graham Page. Foundation chairman Val Lawrence received a cheque for $90,000 at the seafood dinner held after the golf day. The November 21 event also helped Adroit reach the milestone of raising more than $1 million for local communities through fundraising events including the golf day, the joint organisation of Run Ballarat (with the Cotton On Foundation) and a number of other initiatives across its branch offices. “This milestone is one that I’m incredibly proud of and one that I think demonstrates that we walk the talk,” Mr Locke said.

A recreational run taking in beautiful Pt. Roadknight and Anglesea’s spectacular cliff-tops and beaches. A category to suit every runner: 8KM ROO RUN (the main event) 4KM ROO RUN (a friendly jog) 1.6KM GROMMET GALLOP (for under 12 yrs)

ROO RUN is a twilight event & precludes the traditional Rock to Ramp swim which takes place the following morning.

Hunter gathers and plants his moment BY HAMISH BROOKS THE local dining scene continues to blossom with one of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best chefâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening a new restaurant with his partner this weekend. Dan Hunter, whose culinary creations saw the Royal Mail in Dunkeld be recognised as the best restaurant in Victoria, bought Sunnybrae in August from George Biron and Diane Garret. He and his partner Julianne Bagnato have overhauled and expanded the Birregurra propertyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kitchen garden, renovated the restaurant and renamed it Brae. The restaurant will serve its first meals this Sunday at lunchtime. While he may not consider himself one, Hunter is an artist, although his art doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last beyond the moment of its consumption. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always think that the way we prepare and present our meals, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to capture diners attention and a moment in time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to put the impossible on the plate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes the touch is so light itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like it could blow away in the wind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s whimsical almost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What you put on a plate can be gnarly but familiar, if not comforting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;(The cooking) is a discipline and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expressive and it takes a lot of work and a lot of experience.â&#x20AC;? Those familiar with Hunter at the Royal Mail will know that there is no menu as such, just a list of ingredients presented to diners at the start of the night (most of which, the vegetables at least, are drawn from the restaurantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s garden) from which flow startling and divine combinations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a chef you work in the moment, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about capturing the moment because what you prepare is what it is for a very

short space of time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s particularly true with seafood â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you plate it when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cooked within an inch of perfection and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;in its momentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.â&#x20AC;? Hunter and Bagnato could be in their moment. Their move from the Royal Mail to Brae made sense for a number of reasons. Proximity to the coast was one (they are 25 minutes from Lorne), but it was the already fully functioning, healthy kitchen garden that sealed the deal. Since August, Hunter and Bagnato (along with family and friends) have been working in the garden, expanding it, and priming it for this weekendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening and what will be a busy summer. The garden is where Hunter gets his inspiration. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his palette for your palate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes, I feel uninspired or uncreative because you plan for so long and so much work goes into everything. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in the garden I feel Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m at my most creative. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All of a sudden many ideas using combinations of just two or three ingredients will come in a rush.â&#x20AC;?

Jump into Water Safety Week BY JAMES TAYLOR

Dan Hunter pictured with some garden produce.

THIS week is Water Safety Week, and Life Saving Victoria (LSV) has encouraged schools, workplaces, families and friends to join in. The week is the start of the annual Play it Safe by the Water campaign, and several community water safety activities are happening in the Barwon region this week and throughout summer. These include LSVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Open Water Learning Experience, in which qualified instructors will visit Point Roadknight Beach in Anglesea today and Eastern Beach in Geelong tomorrow to teach local students about the techniques of reach and throw rescues, identifying local hazards and dangers as well as confidently using personal floatation devices. Other events for the week include Yachting Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Discover Sailing program for primary schools, which will see five sailing clubs open their doors to 40 schools and over 1,500 students to try their hand at sailing. LSV communications manager Jennifer Roberts said the campaign encouraged everyone to be aware of different aquatic environments and look out for one another. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Swimming is a vital skill for life and we know that many drowning deaths could have been prevented if people took the proper precautions and played it safe around the water. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why Water Safety Week is so important â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great chance to remind ourselves to look out for each other and take all the necessary precautions.â&#x20AC;? More than 200 aquatic centres across the state have joined up for Water Safety Week this year, offering water safety lessons, simulated open water activities, colouring competitions and much more. Schools can get involved too by conducting water safe activities in their classrooms. Lesson plans are available at lsv-from-anywhere.com.au/education.

THIS weekend Surf Coast families can see a live performance of the age old Christmas classic, The Nutcracker. The production will be performed by the Surf Coast’s very own Torquay Dance Academy. “I wanted to give children on the Surf Coast the opportunity to experience one of the world’s most loved Christmas stories,” principal Kim Fraser said. “I love taking my two boys to lots of Christmassy events in December so they don’t think that

Christmas is just about presents and Santa. “We have such a talented community here we don’t always need to travel to Geelong to enjoy great kid’s entertainment.” Torquay Dance Academy will perform The Nutcracker this Saturday at the Torquay College gymnasium stage from 12pm and 4pm. Family tickets are $50 for two adults and two children or $40 for one adult and two children. Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance by calling 0424 400 437.

Apprentices to show off their skills BY JAMES TAYLOR APPRENTICES at The Gordon from across the Geelong region have qualified to test their trade skills next year against some of Australia’s best. Last week, the eight students were awarded gold medals in the WorldSkills regional competition, and will go on to the national WorldSkills competition in Perth. They competed against their peers over sevenand-a-half hours in beauty care, bricklaying, cabinet making, cookery, hairdressing, retail baking,

landscape construction and joinery. The apprentices include: • Billy Samphanh, a first year bricklaying apprentice with M&K Moon Bricklaying in Barwon Heads • First-year cabinet making apprentice Kate Elstone, employed by Fusion Cabinets in Ocean Grove • Hayley Parker, in her second year of a Certificate III in hairdressing and working as an apprentice at Salon Sojourn in Ocean Grove • Samuel King, who is a second year apprentice at Bakers Delight in Waurn Ponds.

Judging at the WorldSkills competition was conducted by a panel of industry experts and Gordon teaching staff. “We have been impressed with the high level of expertise and enthusiasm shown by the students,” WorldSkills regional coordinator Gary Barnes said. “It’s a fantastic opportunity for the students to hone their skills in a competition environment and have some fun.” To prepare for the national competition in September 2014, the students will embark on an intensive training regime ahead of the three-day

event, where they will compete against their peers from 30 regions across Australia. Winners from the national competition will then have the opportunity to compete in the world competition in Brazil in 2015. WorldSkills Australia aims to instil young Australians with the confidence to excel in their trade or skill by inspiring and providing them with an opportunity to showcase their trade and skill talent.

Green behind the gills – newly qualified DEPI Fisheries officers at their graduation.

Fresh Fisheries officers to chip in BY DEAN WEBSTER FISHERIES Victoria has strengthened its force of officers patrolling Victorian waters with the addition of 12 new, specially trained staff posted across the state. Minister for Agriculture and Food Security Peter Walsh said Fisheries officers provided the frontline defence to protect Victoria’s fisheries for future generations. “Fisheries Victoria officers are out in force across the state conducting inspections on the water and along our shorelines to ensure fishers are doing the right thing. “These new Fisheries officers will work to ensure regulations such as bag and size limits are adhered to, while educating the community and promoting fishing opportunities in Victoria.” The new staff graduated from Fisheries Victoria’s intensive seven-week course recently and will join patrol teams to begin on-the-job training. Eight fisheries officers (including one senior officer) will be based in Apollo Bay, Portland, Tatura, Mallacoota and Geelong and a further three senior investigators and one intelligence officer will

be based in Melbourne. Mr Walsh said the new Fisheries officers would join teams patrolling areas popular with snapper anglers over the remainder of the season as well as other fishing hot-spots. Mr Walsh said the Fisheries officers went through a rigorous selection and training process. The Fisheries officers’ graduation follows the conclusion of Operation Gillie, a compliance operation targeting recreational snapper anglers that ran from 5 October to 12 November. Mr Walsh said as part of Operation Gillie, Fisheries officers conducted a total of 4,330 inspections and issued 126 warnings and 77 infringement notices “An additional seven briefs of evidence were prepared and a number of offenders will be charged on summons and their matters heard before the courts,” Mr Walsh said. “Two recreational fishing boats were also seized along with a range of fishing equipment as a result of anglers exceeding the bag limit and, in some cases, concealing their excess catch. “Most anglers do the right thing, but operations like Operation Gillie serve to protect our fisheries from the small minority who do not.”

Summer club traffic Dear Editor, Driving home on Tuesday November 26 at approximately 5.40pm I was about 20 cars back from the RACV club traffic lights heading west when they changed to red to allow one car from RACV club to exit. Not a problem, as they changed back to allow the Ocean Road to flow again. But to my surprise and disbelief, only four cars got through on this cycle before they changed again to allow just one car from the RACV club to exit, by this time the line of cars on the Ocean Road stretched back through the Bell Street roundabout as 5.40pm is a busy time any week night. It would appear that cars exiting the RACV club get priority over those on the Great Ocean Road. I just cannot wait until summer when traffic will swell to huge numbers and the lights change every time a single car wants to exit the RACV club. Looks like the view is not the only thing that has been ruined for the sake of a few. David Fredericks Bellbrae

Community support for C66 Dear Editor, Many representative community groups of Torquay, Jan Juc, Bellbrae and the Surf Coast are united in their support of Amendment C66 to the Surf Coast Planning Scheme in relation to Torquay’s western town boundary being located at Duffields Road between the Great Ocean Road and Grossmans Road. Spring Creek valley is a rare and unique part of the coast providing significant habitat for many birds and animals. Development of this area will have significant negative impacts on wildlife habitat, remnant vegetation and a number of our key waterways. Stopping development along the Spring Creek valley west of Duffields Road will protect and maintain the unique character of Torquay and the Great Ocean Road as a worldwide destination for surfers, tourists and families keen to enjoy our fantastic coastline, unique culture and natural environment. It will also provide a significant green buffer zone between the urban area of Torquay and the township of Bellbrae. We are also mindful as a hot summer approaches that there is a significant risk to human life should this area be developed as it sits within a designated high risk bushfire area. C66 confirms that a sufficient land supply for future growth is more than adequately catered for. With development of Torquay North and the Armstrong Creek area there is no longer any strategic need for the Spring Creek valley to be developed now or into the future. We congratulate council on the Sustainable Futures Plan Torquay-Jan Juc 2040 and give council our full support to confirm the new town boundaries as defined by Amendment C66. This letter is also supported by Bellbrae Residents Association, SCEG, SANE, Surfrider Foundation (Surf Coast branch), Friends of Jan Juc Creek, Torquay Landcare, Torquay Coast Action and Geelong Environment Council. 3228 Residents Association Inc

Mayor waits on council Dear Editor, What happened on Tuesday November 26 at the City of Greater Geelong was wrong. Darryn Lyons was made to wait with ratepayers in the gallery, with the deputy mayor Ron Nelson in the chair for the opening and “questions from ratepayers”, before the swearing in. The first business of the evening ought to have been congratulations to Darryn and oath of office in a statutory meeting, then the new mayor taking the chair of council, for the ordinary meeting. Premier Napthine may well need to take more advice from Melbourne mayor Robert Doyle and others on the best form of proceedings with a popularly elected mayor for Geelong. Peter Linaker Ocean Grove

A weir-d tale in Anglesea

crossed the river on this sandbar at some peril. However in 1975, Barrabool Council gave permission for a weir across the rivermouth to keep the water at a constant level. After the installation of the weir, the long sandspit was washed away. Then more sand began building up in the mouth, eventually covering the weir and stone wall. This raised the floor of the river and widened the sandbar. It is not clear what the consequences will be if all of the stone weir wall is removed. Would the sandspit build up again into the sea? Would the sandbar be lowered to its former height where high tides could wash over it? One thing we do not want is to have the mouth permanently open or we will lose the charm of our riverbank area, and be left with an unsightly expanse of black mud between high tides.

Anglesea River disquiet Dear Editor,

Dear Editor, Prior to 1975 there was a sandspit stretching out to sea from the western side of the sandbar and dunes at the mouth of Anglesea River. This spit would have had some effect on the way the ocean tides related to the stream and also to the movement of sand. At this time, when the sandbar was scoured out, the river was impossible to use for water activities and fishing as it became an expanse of black mud with a narrow trough of water flowing through the centre. This happened again in the 1990s after heavy rain. In this condition the river is most unattractive and visitors were not enticed to stay in town. There has always been a sandbar across the rivermouth – the Aborigines called it Kuarka Dorla – sandy stream. Before the bridge was built, horse drawn coaches

Geelong, Bellarine and Surf Coast’s No. 1 Solar company. Unbeaten on value, quality and workmanship.

While the acidity levels of the Anglesea River have caused considerable disquiet in the community again of late, the lack of a solution to the problem exacerbating the recovery of plant and marine life has been more worrying. However, the emphasis on this problem has masked two other major difficulties associated with the river which many believe can be directly levelled at the failure of the two authorities responsible for the waterway. The first problem is the result of the decision of the Corangamite Catchment Authority to try and maintain a consistently high-water level height in the estuary – it seems to be based on tourist and commercial interests rather than science and reality. For example, the degradation of the tarmac of the Great Ocean Road between McMillan and Parker Streets can surely be traced back to this.

REC 18385

Letters

The water table in this area is lifted extremely high – the river floods the road via the storm water drains often here – and because of this the road under-surface is saturated and the tarmac is constantly breaking up. Repairs to the surface attempted by VicRoads are unable to mitigate this problem and as such there is a constant threat of accident as the holes continue to appear and deepen. Recently, a hole opened up and exposed an air filled gap of 25-30 centimetres below the tarmac which could have seen a car or truck in great danger had it broken through! Further evidence of this problem can also be seen after heavy rain in the Lions playground space and the new skate park as well as Coogoorah Park. These areas remain inundated when the river is high because they are below the water table height at these times. They are consequently rendered unusable until the areas dry out. It seems self-evident that this policy should be reviewed and that there should be a lower level set and attempts made to increase the outflow so that the river is “purged” occasionally. The second problem is the stream path at the mouth of the river where currently the eastern bank is being undercut and eroded badly. While I am not a hydrologist, two years of university geography was sufficient, I believe, for me to understand the water forces operating in a braided stream. When I raised the situation of the digging of the channel to let water out with an authority employee earlier in the year, I was told that the authority directs the Surf Coast Shire to open the mouth on the basis of the river height. But the channel was always dug along the shortest route so as to reduce the cost and took no account of the science of water flow associated with a meandering stream. It beggars belief that we do not have more professional decisions made in respect of the management of this estuary. Let’s hope that something can soon be done to rescue this mini icon on the Great Ocean Road –

the stopping place daily for both tourist buses and vehicles. Unless it happens, Sarah Henderson’s $10 million dollars for 2014 will be eaten into repairing what should be problems that should never have occurred. Lea Quail Anglesea

Thanks for sizzling support

rise as donations by the general public came in. I do hope all that was not in vain as then the motto was “a park for the people by the people”. I do hope we get to vote if we’d like it to remain as it is – by the people – a lovely green spot for families and a place to walk among nature. I would hate to see it spoiled if any changes were made. I keep looking out for notices on shop windows etcetera but no notices to the general public appear. Where do we vote for our say to save our park?

Park your awareness here Dear Editor, I wonder if many people who enjoy Ocean Grove Park are aware that it could soon be taken over by council. Years ago the general public fought to save the park and we all watched the big red thermometer

This note was left in our letter box this morning by our schoolie neighbours. During their week’s stay they were very courteous, apologising in advance if their music was too loud, asked when the bins had to be put out, and said ‘hello’ whenever we met in the driveway. It was a pleasure to have shared the time and space with them. June and Richard Lorne

The party’s over people THE TAC and Victoria Police have joined together in a crackdown on risky driving as the community counts down to the festive season. TAC chief executive officer Janet Dore and Victoria Police assistant commissioner for road policing Robert Hill launched a hard hitting Christmas campaign aimed at preventing further tragedies this year. The launch of The Party’s Over campaign coincided with the release of the TAC’s latest fatality and serious injury data showing year-onyear trends across all Victorian police service areas. Ms Dore said December was traditionally one of the deadliest months on the state’s roads, making the campaign a timely reminder to be safe. “Two hundred and ten people have died already this year and thousands more have been injured. “We want to see Victorians keep safe on the roads for the rest of 2013,” Ms Dore said. “The Party’s Over campaign is a reminder that the roads are not the place to party and it will work in support of police operations cracking down on drug and alcohol affected drivers this Christmas.” The campaign includes TV advertisements in which assistant commissioner Hill tells Victorians: “If you drink or take drugs and drive, if you speed or drive unlicensed, the party’s over”.

Assistant commissioner Hill said Victoria Police had already commenced their Summer Stay campaign, a series of operations targeting road safety issues this summer. “As part of that campaign, Operation RAID is now under way. We know people have been alerted to our extra presence on the roads but 150 drink drivers were still caught (two weekends ago) and a further 88 returned positive drug tests. “With more people taking to the roads for summer, our message is clear. If you drive while affected by alcohol or other drugs, it’s highly likely you will be detected and the party will be over.” Historically, the last 12 days of the year have resulted in the highest road fatality per day rate with an average of 13.4 deaths – 1.12 deaths per day, compared to an average of 0.86 – based on the eight year average 2004-2011. The TAC’s support of police Christmas enforcement efforts is part of the long running Enhanced Enforcement partnership, which has been running since 1995. TAC campaign tracking has shown the enforcement and education partnership with police is resonating with the community, with 73 per cent of Victorians reporting that the 2011 Christmas TAC campaign was talking to them.

Safer speeds possible for pedestrians in Grove

THIS YEAR

LAST 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.

SCHOOL children and pedestrians will benefit from the rollout of more 40 kilometre per hour zones across the state, with new guidelines unveiled recently by Minister for Roads Terry Mulder. Tuckfield Street in Ocean Grove – near the Marlin Drive schools precinct – is a school zone area which could be affected by the new guidelines. Mr Mulder said initiatives from Victoria’s Speed Limit Review will provide lower speeds in targeted areas. “The 40 kilometre per hour pedestrian speed limits will now be able to be extended to major roads which are some distance away from schools but where children still cross. At present, school 40 kilometre per hour zones apply only where a school gate directly accesses a road. However, there are some areas where high numbers of pedestrians are crossing major roads to get to schools. These are the areas where lower speeds may be required during certain times of the day.” VicRoads has developed guidelines for

identifying these higher risk locations, taking into account speed, the number of school-aged pedestrians, the number of lanes to be crossed, traffic volumes, the number of heavy vehicles, the crossing type and the sight distance. Mr Mulder said he expected another 40 to 50 locations across Melbourne and Victoria would be eligible for kilometre per hour school speed zones. “Councils should make applications to VicRoads for these speed limit reductions on arterial roads. In regional Victoria, Tuckfield Street in Ocean Grove – near the Marlin Drive schools precinct – is also a potential area where there could be the need for a reduced speed limit for a school zone. Most of these crossings already have a crossing supervisor because they are on busy roads. However, the changes mean that they will now have reduced speeds, through either electronic or static signs. This will provide extra protection for these vulnerable road users and we will also be giving councils more flexibility to

tailor the hours of operation for their kilometre per hour pedestrian zones to the times when they are needed most.” Mr Mulder said the changes also mean 40 kilometre per hour speed limits could be expanded beyond metropolitan Melbourne to regional shopping strips with high pedestrian activity. “Councils and traders have been asking for greater flexibility in the application of 40 kilometre per hour zones and that is what we will be providing through new guidelines. “For example, in Geelong, there is potential for parts of the popular shopping strips along Shannon Avenue in Manifold Heights and Pakington Street in Geelong West to be reduced from 50 kilometre per hour to kilometre per hour .” Any new proposal for kilometre per hour speed limits will be subject to eligibility criteria and the option of permanent 50 kilometre per hour speed limits in rural and outer metropolitan town centres remains.

If you speed, if you drink or take drugs then drive, if you drive unlicensed or an unregistered car, the party’s over.

GIFT GUIDE

Gifts for the special someone in your life...

Under the tree The region’s youngsters are not short of Christmas cheer and flair as these creatively decorated Christmas trees show. The miniature trees pictured here and decorated by Barwon Heads, Ocean Grove and Clifton Springs primary school pupils are part of a miniature forest of Christmas trees installed in Little Malop Central. Twenty-eight Christmas trees, each one hand decorated by students from local primary schools, will add to the City of Greater Geelong’s street decoration program. Cr Michelle Heagney said observing Christmas through the eyes of children is a fantastic way for people of all ages to enjoy the spirit of the season. Each participating school took delivery of a 2.4 metre Christmas tree blank which they then decorated through their art classes. Once you’ve got the Christmas tree taken care of, you have to start thinking about presents, so here we present a five-page Christmas gift guide showcasing some of the best gift ideas on offer on the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula.

DECEMBER MADNESS


Surf World celebrates

20 YEARS BY ALI DEANE THE doors first opened on Surf World Museum in Torquay in December 1993. Over the following 20 years, the museum went on to become one of the most significant centres of world surfing heritage, and the largest surfing and beach culture museum in the world. This month the museum is celebrating with a series of events. Curator at Surf World Museum Craig Baird, who has been part of the movement for close to 20 years, said the ongoing 20th anniversary celebrations and new exhibition were an opportunity to thank the people who have supported Surf World over the 20 years. “Surf World was conceived as an introduction to the ocean; why waves break and where, a centre of surfing culture and surfboards on display. “The walls were pretty bare, and exhibitions were static displays. “Over time, we’ve changed things. We’ve added more boards, and we’ve got space to alternate exhibitions. “For our 20th anniversary exhibition, 20/20, we’ve taken 20 fantastic things from our years, and put them on display, including three

of Simon Anderson’s early thrusters. “We’ll also be having special celebrations each month as the year progresses, including the launch of Tim Baker’s epic new book Australia's Century of Surf this month, the Surf World International Surf Film Festival in January, open days and movie nights. “It’s going to be cool.” In 2013 historic items including surfboards dating back over 90 years, were discovered in local rafters and holiday homes and brought into Surf World. “There’s been some pretty cool stuff come in this year. We don’t actually have an acquisition budget so we rely on people to help make this place as cool as it is. “Surfers like Mark Richards and Layne Beachley have been kind to loan us their surfboards, wetsuits and other items, and many people in the community have material here on loan. “We’re kind of like a real community museum.” Mr Baird said plans for the future included the return of features from the lost Wave Room, including why waves break and information for people learning to surf. SurfWorld Museum, located at Surf City Plaza Torquay, was the

vision of the late surfing pioneer and adventurer Peter Troy along with surfing friends Vic Tantau and Alan Reid. After teaming up with Surfing Australia, the Torquay surfing industry and Geelong Regional Commission they turned Surf World Museum into a reality. Surf World Museum is also the home of the Australian Surfing Hall of Fame. Keep an eye on SurfWorld Museum Torquay’s Facebook page for updates on all 20th anniversary celebrations and activities, pop in, or phone 5261 4606 for more information.

Meredith warning for those about to trespass BY TIFFANY PILCHER ANTICIPATION is reaching boiling point for the lucky ones with tickets to the Meredith Music Festival next weekend. Featuring everyone from the godfather of funk himself, Nile Rogers, and the rock juggernaut that is the Brian Jonestown Massacre to grunge gods The Melvins, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be big. With a lineup this tempting, organisers are warning those without tickets to stay away or face the consequences which will be strictly enforced. The festival is taking a zero tolerance approach to people trying to gain entry to the festival without a valid ticket, by foot, vehicle or other means. This is in response to a number of serious issues arising from people attempting to gain entry without a valid ticket, including serious personal injury risk and bushfire risk.

Eighteen people appeared in court last month charged with trespassing at the festival. The maximum penalty is approximately $2,750 or six months imprisonment. Organisers said people who have been caught trespassing have begged not to be charged as a criminal conviction wipes out employment prospects and in many cases can have them removed from current employment. Festival organisers will continue to enforce the zero tolerance approach with the support of the local community, Victoria Police, and legitimate festival-goers. They are also asking everyone who does attend to take home everything they bring including couches, gazebos, furniture and hard rubbish. Meredith Music Festival is happening December 13-15, tickets are sold out and applications for Auntyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Waitlist and Auntyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Last Chance are now closed.

JON HELMER

Malbec, meat and Mendoza I’VE noticed a great many intrepid travellers returning from their South American travails seeking out bottles of Malbec, having discovered the delights of this generous and comforting red wine and how well it matches with meat, meat and more meat. “Everything old is new again”, we see and hear it all the time in the wine game and Malbec is a perfect example of that. Most people have tried Cabernet, Shiraz, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Sangiovese even, but Malbec? Not generally as it’s either blended with other varieties or just not grown in many of Australia’s wine growing regions. Malbec is a purple coloured grape, characterised by a deep colour, robust ripe tannins, and a velvety texture. Even though it’s a French variety that is used in Bordeaux blends, it’s more seen as an Argentinian varietal (even a national variety – much like Shiraz is in Australia) these days as the popularity of the grape gains in recognition around the globe. Introduced into Argentina in 1868, it tends to produce a softer, less tannic style. The Argentine Malbec clones also tend to be smaller berries compared to their French cousins. It’s quite susceptible to disease and frosts but better vineyard management techniques have helped curb

potential problems. The most famous Argentine province for growing Malbec is Mendoza, where the vineyards are located in the high altitude regions of Lujan de Cuyo and the Uco Valley in the foothills of The Andes mountains. And when you think Argentina and food, then it’s all about the meat, barbecued that is, as they just go hand in hand. In Australia, Malbec was grown back in the day for bulk wine production, much of which was in South Australia, predominantly the Clare Valley. Mainly used for blending, it’s quite rare to see it as a single varietal, however, there’s a change in the air and new winemakers are playing around and rediscovering what this variety can offer. Below I’ve featured two new wines that just might ignite your interest in Malbec and, with the warm weather signalling that it’s time to fire up the barbie, then what are you waiting for?

Two Men in Mendoza Malbec 2012 ($28) The two Men in Mendoza project is a collaboration of two wine writers/marketers/sommeliers in Ben Edwards and Dan Sims who travelled to Mendoza and fell in love with Malbec and meat. To them, it just made sense and the resultant wines from the project are a fantastic entry

into the world of Argentinian wines. Aromatic violets and savoury cherry notes on the bouquet, a tangy rich palate with bright acidity and fresh, generosity on the palate with the intrigue of damson plumminess, savory dark chocolate notes and a layered velvety mouthfeel, finishing with dry soft tannins making for terrific drinking…mmm, bring it on.

Matchbox Wine Co Clare Valley Malbec 2013 ($32) Winemaker Navneet Singh has been amazed with the response he’s receiving regarding his Malbec. The very cool/hip marketing that they do with the Matchbox Wine Co wines sets the scene for the wines and sales have really taken off for their young, fresh take on the variety. Sourcing the fruit for the wine was easy as the Clare Valley share’s a uniquely rich history with the grape and the fruit used for this wine came from 90 year old vines. Wanting to make delicious, fruit forward wines that were instantly pleasing has really struck a chord with wine-lovers who love the juicy concentrated feel of the “joven” style, which is young and fresh with a soft, fleshy mouth-feel not unlike that of Beaujolais. Delicious.

Local children will present a dramatisation of the Christmas story, featuring two angels who find out they are not as lost as they thought they were. The drama will be interspersed with favourite

A+E news in brief

A Christmas pageant complete with angels will be just one part of the Community Carols at Aireys Inlet this weekend.

Here’s cheers to Forrest beers

Red returns with surf acoustic SURF Coast artist Red Whyte will launch his latest release Off the Rocks Volume Three at the Bells Bar at Torquay Hotel with special guests this Friday night. Following a successful tour of Wollongong last week, Whyte is looking forward to catching up with fans and friends, and sharing his work from 2013. Be prepared to get in the zone with Whyte’s ambient instrumental surf acoustic, Friday night from 9pm.

Christmas carols for all to sing. The carols, sponsored by the combined churches of Aireys Inlet, will be held in the relaxed surrounds of the lawns at the Bark Hut on December 8, from 7.30pm. The community hall will be used in the event of bad weather. The organisers are asking everyone who comes along to bring their own chair or rug and a Christmas gift or financial donation for needy families. Children who come dressed as a character from the Nativity story will be invited to join the pageant.

The Forrest Brewing Company’s beer is stocked in several venues across Geelong, the Surf Coast and the Otways.

THE froth will be flowing in Forrest after the Forrest Brewing Company received a $110,000 grant to help it set up a bigger and better home at a new site. The grant will support a feasibility study for the brewery on ForrestApollo Bay Road to identify and evaluate options to expand to the Old Forrest Mill site in Station Street, enabling it to make more craft beer, relocate its restaurant, build selfcontained eco-accommodation and develop an events centre. The business already handcrafts, brews and bottles all of its beers – Pale

Ale, Stout, Irish Red and Silvertop – at its 600-litre on-site microbrewery, and serves them either on tap or in 500 millilitre bottles. Corangamite federal member Sarah Henderson announced the funding last week. “Expanding the Forrest Brewing Company will be great for Forrest,” she said. “It will create jobs and contribute to the local economy. “Forrest is becoming a muchloved tourism destination in its own right, and the expansion of the town’s brewery will help meet the increasing demand for accommodation and topquality food and drink.”

The Forrest Brewing Company project is one of 88 projects that will share in grants worth about $8.5 million under a scheme designed to improve the quality of the visitor experience in Australia, known as the T-QUAL Grants – tourism quality projects (TQP) program. “The Coalition government has decided it was important to provide certainty to the tourism sector by confirming these grants, which were announced earlier this year,” Ms Henderson said. “I’m a very strong advocate of the tourism industry across Corangamite and I wish Forrest Brewing Company the very best with its expansion plans.”

Uber Mama puts the fun in function DECEMBER is here, and workplaces across the Surf Coast will be looking forward to their Christmas parties. If you haven’t locked a venue in yet, why not consider Uber Mama in Anglesea? Whether it’s an intimate cocktail party, a corporate lunch, a small gathering or a full-on Christmas celebration, the team at the café and restaurant can customise a package that will suit your needs. There are few places along the Great Ocean Road that can boast the stunning views Uber Mama enjoys daily as the Anglesea River works its magic. Book inside, book outside or book out the whole venue. Catering for 50 seated inside and 60 seated on the outdoor verandah, Uber Mama has your next function covered.

With the weather warming up, the spacious outdoor deck is the perfect place to hold your next function. It also doubles as a performance space for musicians such as Levi Anderson, or an impromptu dance floor for when the party really gets going later in the evening. Uber Mama’s suggested finger food menu is $20 per head, and includes such delicacies as sweet corn and shallot fritters with chipotle sauce, Angus beef and pepper pies with chutney, and vegetable spring rolls in lettuce in cups with nuoc cham sauce. Uber Mama is at 113 Great Ocean Road, Anglesea. Open on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from noon for lunch and dinner, and on Saturdays and Sundays from 8.30am for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

UNSEEN local surf footage, a short film contest, live music and audience question and answer with local surfing legends are just some of the exciting elements that make up the second annual Surf Coast Surf Film festival this weekend. Not to mention plenty of waves on the big screen at the Aireys Pub. The festival will kick off on Friday night with Retro Night – Legends Night, featuring some unseen local footage from the early days of surfing on the Surf Coast. Some local legends will then take the stage to discuss the past, present and future of Victorian surfing and answer questions from the audience. On Saturday night the talents of up and coming local surfers and film makers will be showcased with the screening of finalists of the

short film contest. Prizes will be up for grabs for the best film/ documentary, best surf clip and under 18 categories. Saturday night will also feature the premiere of 38 Degrees South 5: Déjà vu. The fifth film in the 38 Degrees South series features Victorian surfers in local and international locations, including Europe, Africa and Indonesia. There will also be live music and door prizes. Entry is free for the entire event and all funds raised will support the Otway Boardriders Club. Head along to enjoy the rare opportunity to see local surfing on the big screen, from 7pm on Friday and Saturday nights. A preview of 38 Degrees South 5: Déjà vu and more information on the event can be found on the Surf Coast Surf Film Festival Facebook page.

Roach’s road to recovery BY TIFFANY PILCHER AFTER facing a myriad of personal difficulties in the last few years, Archie Roach is thankful to be back on the stage. He will once again grace the Port Fairy Folk Festival stage in March to celebrate his illustrious 30-year career and his return to music. As one of Australia’s most respected and influential Indigenous artists, it’s poised to be a moving set, made all the more special by the fact that he is well enough to perform. In 2010, Roach’s soul mate and partner, Ruby Hunter, suffered a sudden heart attack and passed away. Not long after his shocking loss, he himself suffered a devastating stroke that left parts of his body including one of his hands immobile. Then, in mid 2011 he was diagnosed with the early stages of lung cancer. After battling through all of this, he said it was music that brought light back into his life. “It wasn’t easy but I’m doing heaps better, music affects people in so many ways,” he said. “Music can be heartbreaking and it can have the capacity to heal. “It helped me rise above the illness and everything else and get back on my feet.

“I’m spending time drawing on the milk and honey of life.” His return comes after years of begging by family and friends who recognised his absence as a blow to not only Australia’s music scene but the cultural landscape also. His landmark 1991 song “Took The Children Away” brought the plight of the Stolen Generations back into the public consciousness and won him an international Human Rights Award. This year he was recognised for his body of work with a Deadly Award for

his Lifetime Contribution to Healing the Stolen Generations. Archie Roach will perform at the Port Fairy Folk Festival which runs from March 7 to 10. The festival has just made their second lineup announcement, which includes international acts Damien Dempsey and Love Over Gold. Deborah Conway and Willy Zygier as well as Shane Nicholson will join the Aussie contingent. Head to portfairyfolkfestival.com where tickets and full lineup are available.

Brighten your day with new works at Seaview BY ALI DEANE THE latest works on show at Queenscliff’s Seaview Gallery this month will certainly brighten up your day. The latest exhibition features two outstanding young artists, Tracey Keller from Queensland who is new to the gallery, and the highly indemand works of Seaview’s Tiffany Calder Kingston. Ms Keller’s playful paintings vary from hyperrealism to her own brand of quirky impressionism in endearing and comical animal portraits. Light-hearted, mischievous and evocative, her art is instantly engaging and endlessly enjoyable. Ms Kingston’s art celebrates

the complexity of her surrounding environment and her interpretation of the natural habitat. Her unique combination of colour and texture is what makes her work especially beautiful. Don’t miss this fresh and vibrant exhibition, which runs December 7 to 22. There are also many exciting new works from Seaview’s impressive list of contemporary and traditional artists featured at the gallery throughout the month. Seaview Gallery at 86 Hesse Street, Queenscliff is open daily through summer from 10.30am to 5pm. Phone 5258 3360 for more information or head to the website seaviewgallery.com.au. RIGHT: Feet on the Earth and Heads in the Sky by Queensland artist Tracey Keller is one example of the vibrant works on show this month at Seaview Gallery. LEFT: With all my heart and soul is a beautiful example of local artist Tiffany Calder Kingston’s interpretation of the natural habitat, on show at Seaview Gallery this December.

Immerse yourself in sublime soundscapes BY ALI DEANE IF YOU haven’t immersed yourself in the sublime soundscapes of Sydney-based electro-dreamwave artist Oliver Tank, you’ve been missing out. Tank creates his own brand of incredibly textural music; a combination of delicate song writing, instruments, vocals and computers to bring listeners a heartfelt and moving audio experience. This year has been huge for Tank. He has collaborated with Ta-ku and Hayden Calnin, played support for New Zealand artist Lorde’s Australian Tour and Active Child plus released his second EP Slow Motion Music. He will send 2013 out in style, with sets at Meredith Music Festival next weekend and Falls Festival over New Year’s Eve. Tank will be opening Falls Festival on the main stage with a midday set, and he admits although he hasn’t done many festival shows, he is pretty excited. “I’m playing all three Falls, which is amazing. “I played Peats Ridge (2012), but my live show has come a long way since then. “I’ll be preparing a bit of a different set than I normally play, the more chilled out ones might not go down as well with the festival crowds. “I was at Falls in Tasmania in 2011 as a punter, and I just remember being stoked at how good the artists were.

“Falls has such a good vibe, and it’s so much fun. It’s going to be really sweet. “I’d love to see The Roots, Cyril Hahn and Chet Faker. “Hopefully the audience will get into my music as much as they do at my smaller shows.” Growing up in Sydney with a guitar in his hand by the age of 11, Tank turned his attention to production after high school, and the rest is history. “I was working on producing at uni, playing guitar, singing, but not really working towards anything. “I was putting my music on Soundcloud and sharing it on Facebook. Then I wrote “Last Night I Heard Everything in Slow Motion” which was picked up by Triple J and community stations. “People were interested in what I was doing, and ever since then, everything has sort of fallen into place. “I was stoked to work with some of my favourite musos Ta-ku and Hayden Calnin this year, and I’m definitely looking towards producing for more artists.” Tank thinks next year will be even more exciting, with a national Slow Motion Music tour happening in February. For those not lucky enough to score tickets to Falls Festival this year, check out Oliver Tank’s music on his new website olivertankmusic.com/motion or on Soundcloud.

CHRISTMAS ham evokes memories of holidays at the beach. The baked ham was integral to our Christmas lunch and we always had plenty. We would indulge for breakfast, lunch and dinner well after the big man had come down the chimney. It would be eaten fried with eggs, in an omelette or, my favourite, sliced off the bone with toast and tomato relish or mustard. It was part of a roast turkey or goose meal with potatoes roasted in duck fat and a host of other vegetables and gravy. Always followed by plum pudding filled with sixpence, custard, ice cream and brandy butter. Probably standard fare for Australian homes during the 1960s. In hindsight, I appreciate what an incredible achievement it was to cook and serve 30 people this feast. All done from a very inferior oven in a small beach shack. We would have been far better to eat oysters and prawns in the sunshine outside, but my grandmother would never consider that a proper Christmas! So the tradition continues in our family where Christmas lunch is a big deal. We do make it a little easier with the inclusion of cold seafood and depending on the weather; some salads but the must-haves are still turkey and ham. In some families pork or duck is the tradition. Chicken is an easy alternative when feeding a large family and the inclusion of seafood on the menu for Christmas day makes for a festive occasion. Farm Foods Torquay is now taking Christmas orders. It is a time of the year I really enjoy. Talking to people about their particular traditions and exchanging ideas is wonderful. Orders close mid December. You may like to try the following glaze this Christmas.

Glaze

INGREDIENTS Cloves One cup brown sugar Half cup Dijon mustard Half cup orange juice 100ml maple syrup METHOD Carefully peel the skin back from the ham. Use your hands to push the skin gently away from the fat. This ensures a beautifully smooth ham. Using a small sharp knife, score the ham fat in a diamond pattern. Avoid cutting the flesh. Place a clove in the centre of each diamond. Combine other ingredients and mix well. Brush liberally over the ham. Bake in 190°C for approximately 60-90 mins (depending on size). Baste often with the remaining glaze. The outside of the ham will turn a beautiful golden brown colour and the aromas are amazing.

A sneak peek at the new works on show at Bird Rock Café by local artist Dani Raissiguier.

“Part of my experience working with a signwriting company has seen me working on the final step in the production process, finishing, so I’ve learnt a lot about working with different materials. “It’s really exciting and I’m loving what I’m doing.” Ms Raissiguier said she would love people to check out her work. “As a creative person and graphic designer I always like to communicate through my art. “I hope people enjoy what I’ve been doing, and good feedback will only make me want to continue.” Earth in Colours will be on show at Bird Rock Café in Jan Juc this month, with a special opening night this Friday from 6pm. Contact Dani for special artwork orders including art for tables and surfboards via email at dann057@hotmail.com.

A RIDE of a different kind has arrived on the Surf Coast, just in time for summer. Ride the Wave is the Surf Coast’s very first local shuttle bus and charter service, and on top of looping Torquay and Jan Juc every hour on Friday and Saturday nights (6pm-1am), a chartered service is also available for group bookings. Ride the Wave’s first runs in November were a hit and owners Shaun and Penelope Phillips hope the positive feedback is a sign of more great things to come. “All the locals are loving it; we’ve already had quite a few runs, and everyone said the service was good,” Mr Phillips said. “We’ve been thinking about it since May; we’re up and running now, so we’re stoked.” The Ride the Wave shuttle bus route includes pick-ups and dropoffs from Beach Hotel, Bird Rock Café, Torquay Hotel, Front Beach Café, Growlers, Peppers The Sands Resort and a selection of bus stops in Torquay and Jan Juc. “Six venues are on board supporting it. “Our main aim is servicing venues,

Ride the Wave this summer

BY ALI DEANE ART for Jan Juc’s Daniela Raissiguier is a way of expressing emotions. In her latest exhibition, Earth in Colours, Ms Raissiguier has channelled her love of nature and weather into a series of colourful paint and resin pieces; a spontaneous blend of colours that reflect the beauty of the earth we live on. Her latest abstract work exemplifies her diversity as an artist, having studied and received awards for her creative skills in graphic design previously. “I’ve been painting these abstracts in acrylic, and finishing them with resin; it’s different from my previous design work. I was inspired by nature, and these paintings, Island Reef, Aurora and Storm are like birds’ eye shots from above. “They are very cool and very different.” Ms Raissiguier would like to say she works from her home studio, but instead, you’ll find her painting and working with resin in the garden, “because I make a mess!”

GPAC launches colourful season of productions Solstice core up-and-comer Dustin Tebbutt.

Tebbutt on the rise BY TIFFANY PILCHER IT’S been a swift rise to prominence for Dustin Tebbutt. The Armidale-based singer-songwriter performed solo for the first time in July and has already captured significant international attention for his gripping folk tunes. His first single, “The Breach” has received widespread local and international radio attention including multiple spins on the cult show BBC1 With Zane Lowe in the UK. Straight off the back of a national support tour with Boy and Bear, Tebbutt will be performing solo at Harvester Moon next week and at Falls Festival over New Year. After crafting his first release while living in Sweden, he is drawing strong solstice core comparisons to other winter dwelling musical maestros Bon Iver, Jose Gonzales and Sigur Ros. “I’m just finding my voice now and learning a lot about myself along the way,” he said. “There was a lot of stuff going on in my life at the time. Being in Sweden and maintaining a long distance relationship with someone back in Melbourne gave me a lot to delve into internally. “I think that’s part of why it’s so personal.” He first went to Sweden with a band mate who returned home leaving Tebutt with the time and space to begin working solo. Finding working alone confronting and also liberating, he said stepping out on the stage with autobiographical songs and no band to hide behind was daunting. “There is no way you can hide from the fact that people are going to know the songs have something to do with your life and that’s a lot to think about,” he said. “I’ve had to become a lot more confident in telling my stories and with that confidence has come some attention so I’m hoping the momentum will keep up from here.” Tebbutt is now working on his debut EP expected to be released soon.

Geelong Performing Arts Centre (GPAC) has revealed a spectacular lineup of theatre performances for 2014 including eight shows from Australia’s most innovative and accomplished theatre companies. GPAC’s general manager Jill Smith described the season as a mix of classic and contemporary work as well as exciting family entertainment. “We’ve brought together what promises to be a startling season of eight productions that will make you laugh, gasp and even shed tears – possibly all at the same time,” Ms Smith said. The season will kick off in March with muchloved Red Stitch Actors Theatre presenting a warm and funny new play The Kitchen Sink by Tom Wells. Then Belvoir and Malthouse Theatre will make an appearance with The Government Inspector, Simon Stone’s reworking of a classic story with hilarious results.

Another classic will be brought to life when Shake and Stir theatre present a new adaptation of George Orwell’s chilling novel 1984. State Theatre Company of South Australia will fly in with Little Bird – written by multi-award winning playwright Nicki Bloom for Australian stage legend Paul Capsis. Geelong will host the only Victorian performances of this production. Darwin playwright and performer Mary Anne Butler will head south along the Highway of Lost Hearts with her heart warming story about a woman, a dog, a campervan and 4,500 kilometres of wide open road. State Theatre Company of South Australia will return with another Victorian exclusive for GPAC – Oscar Wilde’s brilliant and much-loved comedy of love, manners and mistaken identity The Importance of being Earnest with theatre legend Nancye Hayes. Classic Australian company Circus Oz will

make a long awaited return to Geelong with an electrifying new show for the whole family. The season will finish with a killer black comedy, the Sondheim musical Assassins, directed by Tyran Parke and with a cast led by Nadine Garner. Ms Smith said GPAC was able to offer such a high standard of theatre due largely to the support of corporate sponsors. Deakin University remains the naming rights sponsor of the annual theatre season, making a significant contribution to the performing arts in Geelong. Season tickets packages of four or more shows are available from 7pm on December 5 at gpac.org.au offering discounts of up to 20 per cent on single tickets. Anyone who purchases a season ticket package before December 31 is in the draw to win a trip for two to London, thanks to Harvey World Travel offices in Geelong West, Leopold, Drysdale and Ocean Grove.

Š Joanne Madeline Moore 2013

If you combine inner resolve with outer confidence, then youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a fabulous festive season. But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dwell on what might have been. Venus promises love, but you have to leave the past behind and be open to new ways of relating in the future. Moving onto fresh romantic pastures in an old or new relationship has you back in the saddle of love again. Giddy up Goats!

A bored and restless Ram is a recipe for trouble this week! With the new moon, Uranus and Mercury all activating your adventure and education zone, you need to stimulate your mind via reading, writing, researching and stimulating conversation. Plus get involved in plenty of challenging physical activities preferably in the great outdoors. On Sunday, be proactive in partnerships.

The focus is on health and fitness over the festive season, as the new moon wakes up your wellbeing zone. You could also revamp your daily routine or work schedule. One-on-one relationships blossom, as Venus provides plenty of opportunities for sharing good times with loved ones. Coupled Crabs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to up the romance factor and make your partner feel extra special.

Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a pile of work that needs to be done but, with plenty of activity in your communication zone, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re preoccupied with talking, texting, trading witty emails or flirting with someone special. But be careful that lighthearted banter doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t degenerate into garrulous gossip. And single Librans â&#x20AC;&#x201C; make sure the person youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got your eye on is actually available.

The new moon signals an exciting beginning involving either lust or loot. Perhaps a passionate new lover, a rejuvenated relationship or a fabulous financial partnership? Some lucky Bulls will benefit from an inheritance, superannuation payout or Christmas bonus. But true love wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t flourish unless you are prepared to face responsibilities and sort out your priorities.

With the new moon energising your entertainment and leisure zone, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great time to organize a Christmas party, play sport, study, exercise or go horse-riding. Your creativity is also at an all-time high so tap into the artist within as you play music, paint, write, dance, act or sing up a storm! A fun and flexible approach will help you sail through any challenges this week.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to nurture your inner and outer resources. If your finances are in a mess, be proactive about sorting them out. If your self-esteem has taken a battering lately, surround yourself with positive people who celebrate and encourage your talents. But beware making mountains out of molehills on Thursday, when your obsessive tendencies could go into overdrive.

Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be at your wild and whacky best, as the new moon revs up your eccentricity zone. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also time to nurture friendships, plus follow up promising new contacts. Look for mates who encourage your talents and understand the unique person you are. Your motto for the moment is from birthday great Jim Morrison: â&#x20AC;&#x153;A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself.â&#x20AC;?

Christmas romance is in the air! Some Twins will move into a fulfilling new phase of a long-term relationship, while others will meet their future partner. Joint ventures are also favoured, as you combine your creative talents with others and make beautiful music together. When it comes to work matters get your facts straight, otherwise you could end up in a real mess.

Are you overwhelmed by all the jobs that need to be done around your home? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the perfect week to hone your handyman/woman skills, as you tackle overdue DIY projects and get your place in ship-shape condition for Christmas celebrations. But are you viewing a relative through rose-coloured glasses? Clear and open communication is vital, otherwise you may be misled.

Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been running on empty but, this week, the Sagittarian new moon recharges your run-down batteries. Expect to be full of energy and enthusiasm as you power through pre-Christmas projects with gusto and ease. But tread carefully with a stressed family member, as it will be very easy to say the wrong thing at the wrong time! So aim to talk less and observe more.

With the new moon visiting your work zone, have a long, hard think about any professional adjustments and improvements you need to make in 2014. The more you communicate with colleagues, the more rewards youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll reap. But resist the temptation to be somewhat elastic with the truth on the weekend. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find that 100 per cent honesty is definitely the best policy.

Talk to tackle cyberbullying issues BY JAMES TAYLOR CYBERBULLYING should be considered as the same as bullying in the schoolyard, according to a social media expert, and parents looking to help should encourage their children to open up to them. Hugh Stephens from Dialogue Consulting spoke at three sessions of a cyberbullying workshop in Drysdale on Tuesday, organised by the Bellarine Youth Action Crew. At the parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; session in the evening, he said cyberbullying â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in which someone is harassed through social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter or text messaging â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was experienced by many children, whether as instigator or victim. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re often likely to have played both roles at some point during their schooling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ultimately, cyberbullying is bullying, so when we talk about things like reducing cyberbullying to zero, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit of a fallacy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like the idea you can reduce bullying to zero. I think we should look at the instance of bullying in most workforces; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d find adults bully just as much as young people.â&#x20AC;? He said the difference was cyberbullying â&#x20AC;&#x153;follows people aroundâ&#x20AC;? and could not easily be isolated, but young people were reluctant to admit it was going on or ask for help. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What they typically say is the reason they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t share is that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re worried the parent or trusted adult will take the technology away.â&#x20AC;? Mr Stephens said filtering and controls were ineffective, and the best option for parents was to talk to their children about their social media habits, including their motives for using it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No amount of controls can replace that environment where a child feels they can come

to you, and have that conversation, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be supportive of whatever is happening.â&#x20AC;? He said social media itself should not be blamed

for how it was used. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You can give 100 people a fork, and at least one of them will try to stab someone else with it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so

irrespective of any positive attitude of any kind of tool you want to create, people will always work out a way to use them badly.â&#x20AC;?

New resource spreads awareness of lung cancer BY ALI DEANE AS PART of Lung Cancer Awareness Month, Cancer Australia has released a new resource to encourage Australians to recognise and act on the symptoms of lung cancer. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women in Australia and the new resource Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your cough telling you? aims to increase awareness of symptoms and reduce delays in diagnosis.

Cancer Australia chief executive officer Professor Helen Zorbas said the resource provides Australians with clear and easily accessible information while also addressing some of the common misconceptions about the disease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While tobacco smoking continues to be the largest single cause of lung cancer, it is important to remember the disease can occur in both smokers and non-smokers,â&#x20AC;? professor Zorbas said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The symptoms of lung cancer can often be

vague, making diagnosis more difficult. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The information contained in this new resource will help people identify the symptoms and encourage early medical assessment.â&#x20AC;? The key symptoms of lung cancer can include a new cough that persists for three weeks or more, a changed cough, coughing up blood, and a chest infection that wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These symptoms may be due to other conditions; however, it is important to see your GP or health care worker to be sure.â&#x20AC;?

Expert warns on antibiotics misuse and increasing resistance BY ALI DEANE

Andrea Coote speaks at the launch of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Belonging and Connectingâ&#x20AC;?. Photo: JAMES TAYLOR

Young people connect and share their stories BY JAMES TAYLOR YOUNG people with a disability from across the Geelong region have shared their stories through a multimedia project that was unveiled last week. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;Belonging and Connectingâ&#x20AC;? project was created by the G21 Disability Inclusion Partnership, and launched at a forum for G21â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health and wellbeing pillar held at the Barrabool Hills Centre. It features nine young people with disabilities from diverse backgrounds, who have successfully participated in community life as a result of innovative practices and projects in the G21 region.

The project includes eight short videos, hosted on YouTube and also released on DVD, in which each young person talks about their life, achievements, and their hopes for the future. Meg Stewart-Snoad said her story was about â&#x20AC;&#x153;her life being her wayâ&#x20AC;? and the project would hopefully help others to live their lives their way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the G21 project will help get my message out by giving people a more visual perspective, which may inspire other people to believe in themselves and give these things a go. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to get my message across because as my mother always says: if it is to be, then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to me.â&#x20AC;?

State Parliamentary Secretary for Families and Community Services Andrea Coote, who launched the project, said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Belonging and Connectingâ&#x20AC;? came about in response to a need for a practical resource to promote the stories of young people with a disability. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I love about this is that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about real people, talking about real issues and about their issues; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s directed to young people, which I think is so important; and I think if anything is going to make a difference it is young people talking to young people.â&#x20AC;? To watch the videos, head to g21.com.au/news/ belonging-and-connecting.

WHENEVER a new antibiotic is developed, harmful bacteria evolve to become resistant within a relatively short period of time, according to a University of Adelaide drug expert. Speaking during Antibiotic Awareness Week in late November, Dr Ian Musgrave from the University's School of Medical Sciences said science was running out of new ways to attack harmful bacteria, while drug companies were abandoning antibiotic research and development. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There's no doubt that evolution is winning the antibiotics arms race,â&#x20AC;? Dr Musgrave, a Senior Lecturer in Pharmacology, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bacteria are very good at mutating and developing resistance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, bacteria can easily swap DNA, so these resistance mutations can be effectively â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;downloadedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; from one bacteria to the next. Bacteria can acquire multiple resistance genes this way.â&#x20AC;? Dr Musgrave said he believed science was falling behind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can attack the metabolic pathways bacteria use, we can attack their DNA replication, or we can bust open their cell walls, but each time scientists develop something new, bacteria will evolve so that the same drugs might not be as effective in the following years. It's a vicious cycle, and we can't continue on it.â&#x20AC;? One of the best ways to prevent bacteria from developing resistance, according to Dr Musgrave, is for patients to take their full dosage of antibiotics as prescribed by their doctor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many people start taking antibiotics but then they feel better and don't see the point in taking them anymore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The point is, they need to kill off all the harmful bacteria. If they don't do this, the bacteria can rapidly build up again and become resistant to the drug.â&#x20AC;? He says GPs should also make sure they're not prescribing antibiotics for uncomplicated viral conditions.

TALKING COMPUTERS WITH BRAD MCDERMOTT FROM TORQUAY COMPUTERS

p. 5261 2888 m. 0439 070 571 torquaycomputers.com.au

WELCOME to my column on computers and technology. In this age of computers, I know it can be confusing, frustrating and downright annoying, and that’s just trying to find the “on” switch. Well I am here to help. My aim is to make tech understandable in plain English. I promise I will only use “nerd speak” when I have to. First off, I would like to talk about viruses. These pesky annoyances can be as simple as a program to pop up an annoying advertisement to something as sinister as logging all your bank details and siphoning off your hard earned money. The most common ways of infecting your system are through infected emails, downloading infected files from untrustworthy internet sites, USB sticks

from infected computers etcetra – the list is endless. Of course prevention is better than cure, so take your time when installing software and make sure there are no little extras and check your emails before opening attachments or links. If you have an email from a friend with a generic “Hi, check out this picture” message then maybe contact said friend to make sure it is legitimate. Also, as a rule of thumb your bank will not ask for password details or login information, again better to check with them and be safe rather than sorry. What do I do when I have a virus? Well, as the once great Curiosity Show answered, “I am glad you asked”. Once you are infected then it is important to rectify the issue as soon as possible. Most viruses will disable your antivirus, firewall and other security measures and open the floodgates to many more creeping into your system.

Juniors tear it up at Kiama BY ALI DEANE TOP junior surfers from across the Surf Coast and Bellarine are putting their skills on the line against the best in the country at the Australian Junior Surfing Titles at Kiama on New South Wales’ south coast this week. Throughout the first round on Sunday surfers were greeted by fun and punchy two-to-three foot peaks. Jan Juc’s Cody Robinson, Tristan Forras and Zoe Clarke have each posted great scores to progress through to their respective second rounds. Also up for grabs this week are the All Star School Surfing teams titles and MR (Mark Richards) Shield for junior surfers representing their state and schools respectively. With top names such as Joe van Dijk and Jacob Wilcox in Kiama this week, competition is expected to be exciting throughout the waiting period. Meanwhile, Jan Juc’s Emma Webb has just returned from the Women’s World Longboard Titles at the Swatch Girls Pro at Hainan Island, China. After meeting Hawaiian Crystal Dzigas and Jennifer Smith from the United States in the first round, Webb couldn’t get the score she needed to progress to round three. Repechage round two saw Webb post a 5.70, but it wasn’t enough to get past Brazilian Karina Abras (7.10). In further surfing news – as anticipation grows for the final stop in the men’s world championship tour that will decide the 2013 world champion, the Billabong Pipe Masters at Pipeline in Hawaii December 8-20 – the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP) has released the 2014 world tour schedule.

THE Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) is asking recreational anglers to be mindful of short-tailed Shearwaters when casting out, following reports of dead birds washing up along Victoria’s coastline. “We are at the beginning of the short-tailed Shearwater’s (Ardenna tenuirostris) breeding season following their annual migration from the Bering Sea, between Alaska and Japan, to south east Australia,” DEPI’s regional director Port Phillip Travis Dowling said. “Unfortunately the journey is not successful for all the birds and we are currently receiving reports of large numbers of dead and dying short-tailed Shearwaters from right along the Victorian coast, including in Port Phillip and Corio bays,” Mr Dowling said. “In some years the birds arrive underweight and exhausted from their mammoth flight and as a result some die from starvation. “As the birds are hungry, there are reports that they are attempting to consume baits of recreational anglers on Port Phillip Bay.” VRFish executive officer Dallas D’Silva said there are a few things recreational anglers can do to minimise interactions with these birds while on the water. “If hungry Shearwaters are attempting to take your bait, use a slightly heavier sinker to get your bait to the bottom sooner and cast as far away from the birds as possible to reduce the risk of them becoming entangled. “And carry a towel in your boat that can be used to wrap and calm an entangled shearwater. “If you are experienced in handling birds and have protective gloves, you may then be able to disentangle them and set them free.” “Anglers and beach goers can also call Department of Environment and Primary Industries on 136 186 or RACV Wildlife Connect on 13 11 11 to be connected to a wildlife carer in their area who will be able to assist.” Recently, I was out fishing for snapper, on a day that was neither good for fishing nor good for the Shearwaters (mutton birds). Mutton birds always take a hammering at this time of year, but this year seems to have been harder on them than previous ones.

When you’re out fishing and you see hundreds of these birds dotting the surface of the water, totally exhausted, you can’t help but to take notice of their plight, especially when it is clear these bird are in real distress. We have all experienced the mutton bird phenomenon before. It is not unusual to see them at this time of year and they are always competing for the baits that we as fishers are trying to get to the bottom in pursuit of the snapper we so highly value. Of course this race to see who can get the bait down first, usually results in one or two hook ups on these mutton birds, which most fishers handle with great care and return to the water normally unscathed. This year the mutton birds need us to be especially aware and more diligent when they are around. Update To clarify a point, last week my article seems to have not been as clear as I would have hoped in its message, which, simply given, is this: apply due diligence at all times before heading out in your

Ton wags tail but Wallington left wanting BY JAMES TAYLOR A DEFIANT century by Wallington tailender Robbie Drever was not enough to get his side home against Portarlington in round 5 of the BPCAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s B grade matches. Dreverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 120 was Wallingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top score by far but Portarlingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 320 proved too much to beat, the visitors all out for 285. Portarlingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Travis Lang took five wickets. Queenscliff likewise found Collendinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 362 too high a target, being dismissed for 87 in their first innings thanks to three wickets from Christy McElligott. Their second innings was better, finishing at 6/175 after a knock of 122 from Daniel Mair. Chris

Pitfield took three wickets for four runs off five overs for Collendina, including three maidens. Drysdale successfully chased down the 162 set by Barwon Heads, finishing at 5/239. Skipper Gavin Humphrey top scored with 97 and fellow opener Tim Shandley chimed in with 52. Barrabool never recovered from losing three wickets last week and were bowled out for 194 in pursuit of Ocean Groveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 273, skipper Ross Humphreys top scoring with 70. Anglesea was bowled out for 141 chasing Jan Jucâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 174, Patrick Binyon and Darcy Thornton each taking three wickets for the home side.

Noel was one of our long-standing 50-year members and passed away early last week. Noel had certainly seen a lot of change in the course and facilities over the many years he had been a member, but unfortunately had not been able to play for few years. Enjoy your golf.

PORTARLINGTON GOLF CLUB IF YOU are one of these golfers who whinge and moan about how slow the players are in front of you, then I suggest you take a deep breath, sit on your buggy, smell the roses and appreciate how lucky we all are to be out in the beautiful surrounds of a golf course. We all get held up from time to time, whether it be in the traffic, the supermarket queue, and yes, sometimes even on the golf course. Complaining solves no problems, and probably puts you and your partners off their game! Accept it, and enjoy your game!

Ladies 3 person Ambrose: 81 ladies cracked it for a nice warm day for their ambrose event, and Marg Mascoll (33), Beth Peterson (23) and Marilyn Mooney (22) teamed together admirably to score a nett 64 to defeat Sally Schaller (15), Heather Spry (29) and Megan Siotos (28) on a count-back. Pinshots went to Jill Peppard and Jan Dixon.
