Budget commits funds to duplicate Pioneer Road

SQUEEZE EASED BY JAMES TAYLOR

THE duplication of a short section of Pioneer Road is being touted as one of the big wins for Waurn Ponds, Grovedale and Armstrong Creek residents in this year’s state budget. Nearly $13 million was allocated in Tuesday’s 2014-15 budget to upgrade the section, which runs past the Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre. Pioneer Road already has fully divided lanes from Colac Road to the shopping centre but narrows to an undivided road

as it crosses a bridge near Meadowvale Drive, where it is again duplicated. South Barwon MP Andrew Katos said the funding was part of significant expenditure that would help strengthen the local community. “I am proud that the Coalition government is delivering on education and transport infrastructure that will benefit South Barwon.” City of Greater Geelong mayor Darryn Lyons said he was pleased the budget’s transport investments recognised the need to manage increased traffic volumes

in the Geelong area. “In the same light, the $12.9 million allocation to duplicate Pioneer Road from Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre to Meadowvale Drive will ease pressure on an extremely busy connector road and support one of our municipality’s key residential growth areas.” He said the budget contained funding for several of the city’s priorities. “Funding for roads, rail, education and health is all very welcome – and Geelong is well served through this budget in many key areas.”

Other budget commitments to Geelong include $4.8 million to upgrade Montpellier Primary School and $5 million to improve disability access at Geelong Railway Station. G21 chief executive officer Elaine Carbines said the G21 region would benefit from more than $14 billion of allocated funding, and welcomed the $810 billion earmarked to complete stage 2 of the East-West Link in Melbourne. “The effectiveness of advocacy work on behalf of the region by G21 and others can be seen, in part, in today’s budget.

“We know that governments are more inclined to fund big projects close to an election, but these announcements have exceeded our expectations.” Meanwhile, the state opposition has continued to criticise the state government over the circumstances of how it would provide a public hospital in Waurn Ponds. Labor’s South Barwon candidate Andy Richards said the growing community “deserved better than a shrinking hospital”. “It’s a backflip, it’s a broken promise and the people of South Barwon deserve better.”

MAYOR’S COLUMN local produce to enjoy along the way. One of the highlights for me will be Geelong After Dark. You’ll get to see our CBD like never before. There will be projections to light up buildings, a rooftop cinema at civic car park opposite City Hall, music and pop up choirs, ghost tours at the National Wool Museum and a DJ in the Geelong Gallery. Lots of venues are on board so bring your family and friends into Geelong for a free night out. If you want to take part in the walk, register now at geelongaustralia.com.au. It’s $10 and the money goes to Karingal Foundation for environmental projects along the M to M pathway. I’d love to see a huge turn out for it!

I’m all for arts events that are a bit outside the box, and this weekend’s Mountain to Mouth definitely fits the bill! It’s a 24-hour extreme arts walk that will show off our beautiful region. The journey starts at 2.30pm on Friday at Big Rock in the You Yangs. It finishes at dusk on Saturday with a fire ceremony at the mouth of the Barwon River in Barwon Heads. You can walk one or more stages of the 80 kilometre pathway through Lara, Corio, Geelong, Leopold, Drysdale, Queenscliff, Point Lonsdale, Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads. There’ll be music, storytelling, sports and

Geelong gains international tourism exposure Geelong and the Bellarine will now have more exposure as a tourism destination internationally thanks to a new partnership with the SydneyMelbourne touring route. The Sydney-Melbourne touring route promotes the drive between the two cities and Geelong and the Bellarine is now integrated into that drive. I’m extremely pleased that Tourism Greater Geelong and The Bellarine have been able to achieve this partnership. The exposure Geelong and the Bellarine will get now is huge. The Sydney-Melbourne tourist route is part of the International Travel Trade which markets tourism destinations in travel agencies, travel brochures and key travel services like Qantas Holidays and Thomas Cook. Keen travellers will now be encouraged to catch

a ferry from the Mornington Peninsula to the Bellarine and to travel throughout Geelong. This is a great opportunity for Geelong, and it illustrates very well that we are a smart 21st century tourism city. Geelong has a spectacular waterfront, great wineries and many cosmopolitan shopping precincts. I can’t wait to have more visitors in our beautiful city. I want the world to see how great we are! Next week, Tourism Greater Geelong and the Bellarine director Roger Grant will go to the Australian Tourism Exchange in Cairns to promote Geelong and the Bellarine to key international wholesale partners.

Courting Clifton Springs While the big things are going on and getting most of the publicity, we should not forget the local community works in which is constantly engaged, but sometimes are noticed only by the locals. A good example is the construction of two new tennis courts in Clifton Springs. The concrete slabs for the court foundations were poured just before Easter, and since then work has been proceeding on the installation of fencing, lighting, concrete court surrounds and a public viewing area. We’re hoping the project will be completed by the end of this month, and Clifton Springs tennis players will be enjoying their new facilities soon after that.

Drysdale Hawks enjoy the view LOCAL estate Bayview on the Bellarine has signed on as the major sponsor of the Drysdale Hawks Football Club for another year. Bayview has been an ongoing supporter of the Drysdale Hawks for a number of years and the estate’s development manager Paul Cicchiello said the decision to continue sponsorship for the 2014 season was an easy one. “The Drysdale Hawks are an important part of the Bellarine community and Bayview is keen to show support,” Mr Cicchiello said. “Bayview on the Bellarine is located off Jetty Road and just minutes from the Hawks’ home ground, so this is a great way for Bayview to become more involved in the local community. “We’d definitely love to see kids kicking around a footy in the park or practicing their handball skills before heading out to the Hawks football ground with their families for a weekend match.” Drysdale club president Greg Collier said the

Council awaits news about kinder upgrade grant BY REBECCA LAUNER A FUNDING grant of $350,000 would allow Queenscliff Kindergarten to offer more places and upgrade its aging building. The Borough of Queenscliffe is eagerly awaiting the results of a grant application to progress much needed works at the kindergarten. The proposed redevelopment of the 1960s building will increase floor space allowing Queenscliff Kindergarten Incorporated (QKI) to increase capacity and continue to provide high quality education in a fun, inclusive environment.

The proposed building project will expand the floor space to accommodate a group size of up to 33 students (current limited to 29), increasing the funded kindergarten places by four children per session or seven places overall. The redevelopment will also upgrade inadequate office, kitchen and bathroom facilities for staff and students. Completion of stage one of the Queenscliff Kindergarten redevelopment is contingent on state government funding. Borough of Queenscliffe Mayor Helene Cameron said the new initiative would provide families with young children greater opportunity to attend

the local kindergarten rather than having to leave the borough. “There is already a current waiting list of children wanting to attend kinder in Queenscliff and I share the concerns of parents who want to educate locally,” Cr Cameron said. The funding submission has received letters of support from Queenscliff Primary School, St Aloysius Primary School, Pt Lonsdale Primary School, Bellarine Community Health and the Geelong Regional Library. “We are very hopeful that the state government will partner with Council to deliver this important early years project,” Cr Cameron said.

Hawks were pleased to continue their collaboration with Bayview on the Bellarine. “The Drysdale Hawks are proud to be partnered with Bayview for another year running, particularly in this, our one hundred and thirty-fifth year. “We’re looking forward to another great football season with Bayview and another successful year for the estate. This partnership seems to get stronger every year and we’re excited with what 2014 will bring.” The Hawks have enjoyed a strong start to the season and crushed Newcomb Power on the weekend. See page 99 and 103 for more football coverage.

Petition goes to the top BY REBECCA LAUNER MEMBER for Bellarine Lisa Neville tabled a petition in Parliament earlier this week calling on the Napthine Government to intervene in the proposed sale of Ann Nichol House. Ms Neville said there was deep community concern about the proposed sale, with more than 1,360 people signing the petition. “The Minister must act now and call a halt to the process so that the residents and the broader community can be consulted and all options considered,” Ms Neville said. John Turner, convenor of the Portarlington Community Association’s Ann Nichol House – keep it public group, handed the petition to Ms Neville to be tabled in Parliament. Mr Turner said the Bellarine’s only public not-for-profit residential aged care facility should not be sold to a private company until every possible option is explored.

Strong-willed Stacy never gives up BY REBECCA LAUNER STACY Sedlins is one strong-willed girl. The 16-year-old Ocean Grove teen, who was born with Klippelfeil syndrome, has been challenged physically and emotionally during her life but has overcome many barriers. Klippel-feil syndrome is a bone disorder characterised by the abnormal joining of two or more spinal bones in the neck, which means Stacy has limited range of movement of her neck and back, as well as pain in these areas. But on top of that, Stacy has been subjected to bullying throughout primary and high school, and has “learnt to grow up fast” after facing many tough challenges with her mum, who suffers Bipolar disorder. But Stacy said it was thanks to a couple of special workers she met through Time for Youth’s Geelong Project who helped her cope and realise that there is more to life than school. Stacy recently left school and this year began studying Certificate III in beauty services at TAFE, which she is really enjoying.

Stacy Sedlins was the winner of the Inspiration Award at this year’s Impetus 2014 Geelong Youth Awards.

“I am hoping to do a few more courses until I’m 18 and then get a job in a salon,” she said. Workers at the Geelong Project, who nominated Stacy for an Impetus 2014 Geelong Youth Award, said they were continually amazed by her bright and bubbly personality and the fact that despite the barriers she faced each day, remained positive and knew that she would have a bright future. The judging panel were amazed to read that many young people nominated for the award had the strength to not only overcome personal challenges, but to use these challenges to help and encourage others to do the same. But it was Stacy’s story that stood out and she was awarded the Inspiration Award at this year’s event. “I was really shocked when I was told I got nominated, and because I was against 16 other people I didn’t think I had a chance!” she said. With a never-give-up personality and attitude to life, Stacy wanted to tell other youths who were facing tough challenges. “Stay strong, don’t give up, there is hope for everyone and it’s never the end of the world, ever.”

Performance space contested at meeting BY TIFFANY PILCHER AN OVERWHELMING majority of people that attended a community meeting about Ocean Grove Park’s proposed performance space on the weekend have stated they oppose the plan. The meeting was held on Sunday at the Ocean Grove Primary School hall and attended by more than 60 people. Members of the Ocean Grove Park Inc, which manages the park on behalf of Trust for Nature, were invited to attend, but chose not to.

In the meeting, convened by members of the former Save Ocean Grove Park group, several answers were given to questions raised at previous community meetings regarding who will manage the $1 million space and the types and frequency of performances expected to take place in the park. There was also a show of hands for those in favour, impartial and against the building of the space. Of the people who voted, six people were in favour of the building, 12 were impartial and about

38 stated that they were against it. Convenor Stephanie Asher said she and the other three organisers then left the meeting to allow those against the project to decide their next steps. “There were questions left unanswered from a previous meeting so we promised we would answer them. “However, as the issue of the park’s ownership has been resolved and we are impartial to the performance space, we as convenors bowed out to allow the meeting to continue.”

New business for Geelong to create 45 jobs BY REBECCA LAUNER CITY of Greater Geelong mayor Darryn Lyons has announced a multi-million business for Geelong during the launch of the latest Economic Indicators Bulletin. “I am thrilled to announce we have just signed contracts with crop protection manufacturer Accensi to base the company’s Victorian headquarters in Geelong,” Mr Lyons said. “The company has bought five hectares of land at Broderick Road at the Geelong Ring Road Employment Precinct. “This is a $20 million development for Geelong with flow on economic benefits of $100 million and when operating at full capacity the venture will provide 45 new jobs in Geelong. “This is a great story – Accensi has chosen

Geelong because of our infrastructure, proximity to markets, labour force and availability of affordable industrial land.” In launching the bulletin, Mr Lyons said, overall, Geelong’s economy was performing exceptionally well. He also highlighted some major projects underway, including the $93 million Geelong Hospital expansion, $80 million Bellarine Lakes Village in Moolap, $67 million St John of God Hospital redevelopment and (CADET) at Deakin University’s Waurn Ponds campus. A project awaiting commencement is the $70 million Leopold Gateway Plaza expansion.

ROLLIN ON

OCEAN Grove resident Johnny Rollins sings his heart out on The Voice on Tuesday night. The singer and drummer – who has frequently appeared in the pages of the Bellarine Times as part of duo CarterRollins – has made it past the blind auditions stage of the Channel 9 talent competition. His crowd-pleasing performance of Labrinth’s song “Beneath Your Beautiful” caught the attention of mentor Kylie Minogue, who selected him in the last seconds of the song to be part of her team. Surf Coast and Bellarine residents will already be familiar with Rollins’ talent, as CarterRollins have played many gigs in the region, as well as nationally and internationally.

Fundraising all about tea and treasures for Port BY REBECCA LAUNER FUNDRAISING is all about the tea and treasures this month as the Portarlington community gear up for two big events. The seaside town is set to host its Lace & Grace Exhibition on Sunday May 18, followed by its Biggest Afternoon Tea on Thursday, May 22, which will help raise much-needed funds for the Cancer Council of Victoria. The Lace & Grace Exhibition will feature some of grandma’s best needlework, lacework and crochet pieces – many of which are currently experiencing a strong resurgence in today’s fashions. Joint co-ordinator Cheryl Hilton said people were now appreciating the skill and care taken to create not only decorative but practical handmade pieces, bringing them out to share with today’s generation for their adaption. “Most of these delicate handcrafts have a story to tell of a time when women got together over a cuppa and cake to share their skills and offer practical support to each other,” she said. “We are delighted to present to the public a wonderful display of some exquisite work by local organisations – the Portarlington Quilters, Embroiderers (Bellarine Belles), our CWA members and Girl Guides.” Local Drysdale designer Jacqui Berzel will be offering a rare opportunity to purchase her stylish designs – a one-off piece trimmed with lace and accessories to match.

Trading tables will also offer a range of preserves, cottage garden seedlings, a lovely variety of hand crafted bird feeders and bird boxes made from recycled timber and a wide selection of pet beds and blankets. A delicious Devonshire tea will be available throughout the day, and there will be four lovely prizes to raffle. Meanwhile, tickets are still available for Portarlington's Biggest Afternoon Tea, which will feature leading comedian and professional magician Warren Jackman, musical entertainment by the Coryule Chorus, an auction, drawing of the major raffle, table raffles, door prizes as well as a delicious afternoon tea. Make sure you don't miss out on buying some major raffle tickets in the main street on Friday, Saturday or Sunday mornings. Raffle tickets are also available at the Portarlington Neighbourhood House. The Lace & Grace Exhibition will be at the Portarlington Senior Citizens Club Rooms, Newcombe Street, between 10am and 4pm. Entry is $5 and includes a Devonshire Tea. Portarlington’s Biggest Afternoon tea is at Parks Hall, Newcombe Street, between 1.15pm and 4pm. Tickets cost $12 and are available to buy from Margaret Manning on 0409 334 480.

Port captains to fly Coryule flag at M-M BY TIFFANY PILCHER THE Portarlington Primary School captains are gearing up to be the Coryule Ward flag bearers for the final leg of the Mountain to Mouth (M-M2014) extreme arts walk on Saturday. The students will carry their ward’s flag from the Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club to the mouth of the Barwon Heads River with other walkers on the 80 kilometre journey. Each of the region’s 12 ward flags will be carried on the walk, which begins in the You Yangs and will finish in Barwon Heads. People of all ages and abilities are encouraged to register to walk one or more stages of the walk which will incorporate a program of music, visual

arts, storytelling and sporting elements. Funds raised from M-M2014 will support the Karingal Foundation to present inclusive environmental projects along the M-M pathway. Portarlington Primary School principal Lesley Allbutt said she was looking forward to seeing the school represented so prominently at the event. “We are really excited to be representing the Coryule Ward Community in the Mountain to Mouth event. “It is the closing leg so we are looking forward to celebrating the finale trek of this special amazing event that will showcase our beautiful region.” For more information on M-M2014 and its coinciding Geelong arts and culture event, Geelong After Dark, turn to page 73.

Portarlington Primary School captains Erin Gillet, George Bourke-Finn, Rose Chambers and Caine Gale will carry the Coryule Ward flag with their principal Lesley Allbutt for the final stage of the M-M2014 journey this weekend.

POP UP & O I D U T S GA L LE RY

BY REBECCA LAUNER WORKERS have recently completed stage two of the Point Lonsdale Foreshore Master Plan. The project involved a series of improvements to the beachfront promenade, including the installation of new barbeque facilities with undercover picnic tables, an open air mezzanine level with picnic tables, and two all-weather shelters. The shelters reflect the history of the area; they were modelled on the gun emplacements at the nearby lighthouse and were built using reclaimed timber from the Point Lonsdale Pier. The works were carried out between Albert and Loch Streets, which will remain fenced off to enable the grass to properly regenerate. It is intended that a winter Rye grass will be used to hold the embankment until spring when Kikuyu and Buffalo grass will be planted to provide tough, drought tolerant coverage. Workers completed stage one of the master plan prior to Christmas, which involved the

construction of a viewing platform opposite the main shopping precinct and the installation of an all-abilities access path to the promenade. Borough of Queenscliffe mayor Helene Cameron said the works had enhanced public amenity and made the natural beauty of the area more accessible. “It has been very encouraging to see so many residents and families enjoying this revitalised part of our popular foreshore area. “The large number of positive and supportive comments from residents and visitors has also been extremely heartening.” The third and final phase of the Point Lonsdale Foreshore Master Plan will involve improvements to the village playground area, including the relocation of the toilet facilities and the enlargement of the playground. Work on stage three will begin when external funding has been secured. The council will also start works to underground the powerlines between Admans Street and Kirk Road, which should start in spring.

Reformed developer contribution plans to deliver BY DEAN WEBSTER ROADS, parks, sports and community facilities will be delivered quickly and more efficiently in fast growing areas across regional Victoria, under a reformed development contributions framework. Developer contribution plans have been a critical component of funding new community infrastructure in growth areas like Armstrong Creek and Torquay. Surf Coast Shire mayor Rose Hodge Mayor, welcomed the reforms. “Developer contributions are important in ensuring ratepayers don't bear the full cost of providing infrastructure to new areas. “Council has used this approach in Torquay North to fund major infrastructure works. “A streamlined process for contribution levies has

the potential to save administrative work, money and time for councils and ratepayers in future.” Planning Minister Matthew Guy said the new standard approach to developer levies will reduce lengthy delays in delivering local infrastructure where it is most needed and provide certainty for developers and councils. “New developments and vital infrastructure in areas of significant growth will no longer be tied up for years by frustratingly complex processes and costly negotiations,” Mr Guy said. “The new reforms ensure that the development industry will know upfront what they need to fund and when they are required to fund it.” Urban Development Industry of Australia Victorian executive director Tony De Domenico said these new reforms

will provide certainty and consistency. “It enables councils to be open and transparent in how and when they provide community infrastructure,” Mr De Domenico said. “Diligent councils will be able to prioritise needs of a community and allocate funds accordingly.” However, the Housing Industry of Australia (HIA) said that the minister’s new developers contribution framework will increase the cost of housing for Victorians. HIA’s Victorian executive director Gil King said the government had announced developers and ultimately homebuyers will pay up to $268,000 per net developable hectare for basic and essential infrastructure items needed in new communities. “This could mean that the tax will be at least $17,000 per allotment depending on

the size,” Mr King said. “The homebuyer will pay this and this is not good news for housing affordability in this state.” “HIA’s view is that the government needs to either play a greater role in contributing to the cost of infrastructure rather than shifting the cost to the homebuyer, or find alternative ways to deliver.” Mr Guy said that standard levies for basic and essential infrastructure will be available for areas experiencing a significant proportion of housing and jobs growth identified in the government’s Regional Growth Plans. Following the passage of legislation, the new framework will be introduced on July 1. For further information, go to dtpli.vic.gov.au/planning.

Golf day for life saving heroes BY TIFFANY PILCHER A TORQUAY cyclist who suffered a heart flutter, causing him to flat-line twice, near the Thirteenth Beach Surf Club last month has found the mystery life saver who rescued him. Austin Swain, 64, was riding along Barwon Heads-Torquay Road (Thirteenth Beach Road), near the surf club, with a friend when he collapsed on Tuesday April 1. His riding companion and a then unknown life saver administered CPR and Mr Swain said without the assistance of the life saver, he

would have surely died. After the Bellarine Times put a call out for the man, Ralph Walker contacted Mr Swain to let him know he was the life saver in question and the two, along with his friend and the paramedic staff who assisted Mr Swain, went out for a round of golf together at The Sands in Torquay on Friday. “I was really happy to be able to properly say thank you. I’m very, very, very grateful. “We all had a great time and then we went back to my house for some food and I gave Ralph a nice bottle of wine to take home, it seems like

very little for a lot. “Hopefully we do it again next year and there are plenty more to come after that.” Mr Swain, who is now back to full health, has organised for a CPR course to be held at The Sands to help others learn the life saving skills. The CPR training course will cover basic theory, hands-on practice and defibrillator use. If you are interested in taking the course, contact Paul Martonhelyi on 0422 192 792 or email mhelyi@ozemail.com.au. The cost of the course is approximately $65 per person.

Celebrating Aboriginal knowledge and wisdom BY REBECCA LAUNER THE Surf Coast’s natural environment will be used this month as a stage for local Aboriginal storytelling. During the Connecting to Country Aboriginal Arts Festival, which runs between May 23 and May 30, people are given a unique opportunity to look at the Surf Coast through the Aboriginal lens, allowing them to deepen their connection to the physical environment on an emotional and spiritual level. Throughout the week there will be walks led by Elders or “keepers of knowledge� who will guide participants through several culturally significant areas on Wathaurong Country and share local (Dreamtime) stories, knowledge and wisdom. Learn about scar trees, ancient middens and traditional camp sites or bush tucker. There will be several workshops, such as weaving with Aunty Bronwyn Razem or Nikayla. Nathan Patterson (founder of Iluka Arts and Design) will host art workshops as well as creating a group mural piece. Children can have a go at traditional dance or have their faces painted, “Mob-style�. Boys and men can learn to play the didgeridoo while yarning circles and documentaries in the evenings will provide you with food for thought on some interesting topics/contemporary issues. The festival starts just before the Australian Indigenous Surfing Titles kick off at Bells Beach on Sunday May 25, which continue until Friday May 30. Divisions include Open Men's, Open Women's and Masters Men. MEANWHILE, Victoria’s Aboriginal Tourism Development Strategy for 2013–2023 represents an exciting opportunity to enhance Victoria’s offering

of sophisticated, engaging tourism experiences that showcase Victoria’s unique Aboriginal cultures. The strategy states that there is a need to increase recognition of and develop Aboriginal tourism across the state. It also states that each region rich in Aboriginal history and culture, such as the Great Ocean Road, has a small and growing product offering that could be nurtured to enhance the consumer’s desire to visit a region and undertake an Aboriginal experience. For more information about the Connecting to Country Aboriginal Arts Festival email connectingtocountry@gmail.com, phone 0402 901 420 or like them on Facebook at facebook.com/ connectingtocountry.

Volunteer Coast Guard needs help THE Police and Emergency Services Minister is calling on Victorians to support a monthlong fundraising campaign for the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard. Kim Wells recently launched The Club Marine Mayday campaign, which runs nationally during May and aims to raise money for the coast guard, inform the community about the work they perform, and recruit volunteer members. Mr Wells paid tribute to the AVCG and its volunteers who provided a critical service to the community, conducting safety patrols and search and rescue operations along the Victorian coastline. The launch comes after a coast guard crew escorted a stricken yacht back to the Queenscliff shore on April 26. Two sailors set off a mayday alert after their vessel reportedly lost steering about four nautical miles off Point Lonsdale. Coast Guard rescue crews responded immediately to the call but were prevented from reaching the 30-foot yacht due to poor weather. Coast Guard crews stablised the vessel while water police made their way to the scene. The two men onboard were safe and comfortable while they waited to be rescued. Mr Wells said by donating to the “Mayday� campaign, people directly contributed to potentially lifesaving operations, and supported men and women who selflessly volunteered their time to protect the lives of others. Mr Wells said ACVG assisted almost 500 boat operators in 2013 and has attended to more than 220 boats this year already. Make a donation to the Mayday campaign at mycause.com.au/events/mayday.

Pigeons give Daniel’s spare time wings BY REBECCA LAUNER “I OFTEN think he would choose his pigeons over me,� Shirley Stacey says with a laugh. “He will die before he gives up racing.� Mrs Stacey is referring to her husband Daniel, 73, who has been racing pigeons for the past 58 years. The couple, who live in Corio, were recently in Torquay training their 60 homing pigeons. Mr and Mrs Stacey travel to different locations across the region to release the birds so they can improve their fitness and flying times home in the lead up to competitions. Mr Stacey, who began racing pigeons in England and is a member of the North Barwon Pigeon Club, said he had been releasing his birds from the same

spot in Torquay since 1974. Then it was surrounded by farmland, now it is a vacant block surrounded by houses. “It usually will take them 45 minutes to get home to Corio, but if there is a head wind that could take longer or if there is a tail wind they could get there in 15 minutes,� Mr Stacey said. “Sometimes they can fly home quicker than the car!� Mr Stacey, who estimates he has flown about 3,000 or 4,000 pigeons to date, said while he was a top flyer for many years, he simply did it now because racing was a fun pastime and it got him out of the house. But Mr Stacey feared the sport was dying because kids today were more interested in their electronic devices.

is quite exciting. “After training at the Royal Melbourne and seeing how it works at that level, and then coming in here, we can truly see the potential for golf in Torquay to be of the same standard. “It’s a star on the chest of the town and it’s great to be able to offer the community such a great course in such a fantastic location. It doesn’t get much better than this.” The club is focused on the strong development of young players and junior clinics and school holiday classes are also available.

Grove snippers win in black and white snaps BY TIFFANY PILCHER A COUPLE of creative Ocean Grove hairdressers have picked up awards in Gordon TAFE’s black and white photo shoot competition. Bonnie Trevean of Kalo Hair & Beauty and Hayley Parker of Salon Sojourn won three awards between them in the annual competition, announced last Monday night in Geelong. Ms Trevean took out first place in the Second Year Apprentice category, as well as third place overall and Ms Parker was voted the People’s Choice winner. The brief was to create an artistic look and style which is suitable for a black and white photograph. Bonnie Trevean’s creation won her third place overall Ms Trevean, 16, has been working with Gordon and Best Second Year Apprentice at the Gordon TAFE black and white photo shoot competition this year. and Kalo for 12 months and said she knew she

wanted to use waves to best capture her look. “I looked at a lot of photos, found the ones I liked and aimed to recreate them in different ways. “I did a directional blow dry on the model the night before, then at 5am the next day I finished the look with tongs and rollers. I wasn’t expecting to do this well, it was a bit of a surprise.” The girls were up against first, second and third year apprentice hairdressers along with fully qualified hairdressers from across the region. Gordon hairdressing program co-ordinator Kristen Grasso said this year’s competitors had to understand shape, form and texture to suit the black and white photos. “All the students have done a wonderful job. “It is great to see them continue to extend their learning and bring their creativity to the forefront.”

Not speaking for all

The debate continues

Dear Editor, The Drysdale and Clifton Springs Community Association (DCSCA) does not speak for everyone in their opposition to proposed traffic lights at the intersection of Jetty Road, Grubb Road and Portarlington Road. I am sure many people would prefer traffic lights to being stuck in a line of up to sometimes 20-30 cars waiting to exit Jetty Road. With the increasing population, this situation will only get worse. Certainly a designated slip lane to Clifton Springs and one from Drysdale to Ocean Grove would improve the traffic flow now; but we should be considering the situation 10 years down the track. If the truth be known, the construction of the new estate in Jetty Road was known about many years prior to it going ahead and instead of enlarging the roundabout, which I believe cost close to $500,000, traffic lights should have been installed.

Dear Editor, I have some questions for Ray Page (“No mention of illegal”, Letters, May 1) and others who regard boat people as illegal. What is a refugee? What is an asylum seeker? Do you believe it is right to lock up innocent people? What are the terms of the UN Refugee Convention which Australia signed in 1951? If people arrive in Australia without permission and claim asylum, what offence have they committed? And here is a question for the hip pocket: how much does it cost Australia each year to pursue its present policy towards asylum seekers who arrive by boat? The Commission of Audit has the answer. It costs more than $400,000 a year to detain one asylum seeker in offshore detention and $239,000 a year to keep one asylum seeker detained in Australia. It costs less than $100,000 a year to hold one asylum seeker in Community detention and less than $50, 000 to hold them on a Bridging Visa. Let the debate continue.

Dear Editor, I am bewildered that 3228 Residents Association group secretary Sue O’Shanassy has been on an antidevelopment campaign, but only after having sold her acreage property west of Duffield’s Road to a developer for millions of dollars, adding many more small residential blocks to Jan Juc. Sue should be enjoying her developers money now, having been a big part of development in Jan Juc herself, and allow others to be part of the town instead of trying to lock the place up. The 3228 group does not represent me or the majority of Torquay and I find it very hypercritical that the group’s organiser is now against development after reaping the rewards of selling out to developers.

On the road to nowhere? Dear Editor, The continual provision of community based notfor-profit aged health care, so hard fought for on the Bellarine Peninsula, seems to have been destined for oblivion from some time ago. The generic reply to hundreds of letter and emails protesting at the selling off of Ann Nichol House, Portarlington, from Ageing Minister David Davis –“ ...I understand that the organisation currently delivering aged care services at Ann Nichol House, the Bellarine Community Health Services (sic), is an independent, community-controlled organisation…” – indicates the state government is either ill-informed, inert, or intends to wash its hands of its responsibility

to the aged in all communities like ours. It seems that “the rot set in” in late 2006. Bellarine Community Health Inc filed for the wind-up of the “incorporated” status to become Bellarine Community Health (BCH) Ltd, noting substantial financial losses attributable to the Global Financial Crisis and the failure of Lehman Bros in the US. Losses with Lehman Bros were quoted as $4.4million, ($1.2 million has since been recovered). As a “Limited” entity, BCH Ltd now required “simplified obligation” for financial reporting, quorums, major decision making and business operations. BCH, as an incorporated entity, and in accordance to its constitution, required a quorum of at least 50 members or 10 per cent of members to discuss and decide on policy variations such as special resolutions (major changes to agreed policies). Members numbered 1,079 in September 2010, so at least 50 community members were required to form a quorum, and 75 per cent of these were needed to vote in favour of policy change. There were usually many more in attendance when major issues arose. From that time on, a quorum for BCH Ltd consists of just five people. The level of community participation has vapourised! Decisions on community health, including aged care at Ann Nichol House can be made by just five people! Is this what the minister means by “independent”? It is, surely, independent of our community, but it is certainly not “community controlled”! The last available figure on membership of Bellarine Community Health Ltd is 67 (June 2013). It seems that so many well meaning and contributory former members have seen that they have been stripped of their abilities to participate in the provision and maintenance of aged care and community health in our area. This now “independent and community-controlled” body has, in the last few months, closed Coorabin aged facility in Point Lonsdale and is negotiating the sale of Ann Nichol House, all without the auspices, or permission, of our community. They have even given false information as to their negotiations with the sale of Ann Nichol House. These are treasured assets which have been established and maintained by our community.

It is difficult to imagine how this small, nonrepresentative group could even contemplate this sell-off, let alone carry it out without the tiniest hint of community consultation (although the level of reporting and communication with stakeholders has been at a low level for many years now). It’s high time the officers and the board of BCH Ltd organised a forum to explain to us their intent and their intentions. And this should occur before the completion of the sell-off of Ann Nichol House. Lindsay Ellis Coryule Ward councillor

The only state and federal investment recently announced for the area was towards the Anglesea landfill. We have had a study into fish kills, another feasibility study for an oval in Aireys Inlet, as well as toilets for many travellers visiting our coastal towns each year. The Anglesea and Aireys Inlet townships both deserve more support and investment into local infrastructure from all levels of government. Both towns should become more vocal about our Torquay North-centric shire and work together to redress the balance of investing in our local communities.

Anglesea Ward’s needs

Bob Dwyer Anglesea

Dear Editor, As a resident and rate payer within the Anglesea Ward (which takes in Aireys Inlet) it was encouraging to read Robert Stephen’s letter to the editor “Simply not cricket” published on April 24 about neglecting our local infrastructure needs and the ongoing bias towards Torquay North. We all read the papers and newsletters and the ongoing bias towards infrastructure funding in Torquay North continues unabated from all levels of government and includes new shire offices, soccer fields, schools, pavilions, Asia Cup bids and the list goes on and on and on! While I can appreciate the demographic projection of 45,000 more people living in the Surf Coast Shire by 2031 and much of the growth being in Torquay North and Armstrong Creek, other townships still require sporting facilities and basic infrastructure and investment. Let’s just for a minute reflect on townships of Anglesea and Aireys Inlet with a permanent population of 3,586 people and growing at a steady pace. Both have significant services and industries which contribute to Victoria’s economy and positive education and health outcomes for the shire with two schools, eight camps, and leading adventure services like Go Ride a Wave, surf clubs, medical services, businesses, parks and tourism operators.

Serious bushfire risk Dear Editor, The past fire season was a real reminder that we need to take the risk of bushfire in our local area very seriously, no matter where we live and work. Fires in Victoria are fierce and pose a real threat to lives and property. The state government worked hard to ensure the state’s emergency services were prepared for the past season, with aircraft, tankers and crews always at the ready. I thank all those involved in the fire effort for their hard work and commitment demonstrated in the face of fires threatening life and property. Even before the season started, a lot of work was done to reduce bushfire fuel on public land with methods such as planned burning, slashing, mowing and the construction of fire breaks. Last year, this government delivered the biggest planned burning program the state has seen in three decades. We protected our state by undertaking over 255,000 hectares of planned burns. Over the next few weeks, you may continue to see or smell smoke from planned burns in your area and some roads may be closed. Although this may cause inconveniences, these burns are part of a plan to reduce bushfire risk to our community, property and

the environment. The planned burns are carried out under carefully managed conditions and I thank the DEPI, Parks Victoria and CFA team for all their hard work. The height of the fire season may have passed, but being fire aware and prepared is an ongoing and shared responsibility. Landowners need to continue to take action by clearing weeds and removing firewood, rubbish and other fuel from around private property on a regular basis. Don’t wait until the weather warms up again. I urge everyone in our community to know the fire risk where they live, work or travel, and what they should do if faced with a fire. For the latest information see the planned burning map on the DEPI website depi.vic.gov.au/burnsmap or call the Victorian Bushfire Information Line on 1800 240 667. Ryan Smith Environment and Climate Change Minister

Media arrive at last Dear Editor, Climate change is too difficult for most people to understand. This has helped the deniers to gain the upper ground. Like a clever defence lawyer, highlighting uncertainties and creating doubt has worked for a long time. The tobacco, drugs and asbestos industries used the same tactics to keep the money rolling in. Pointing out a ship icebound, snow falling all the way to Florida, and it’s still cold riding a motorbike are examples of this. The media need to get the message of climate science across, so the people can understand it, otherwise we risk losing our ability to halt the serious impact on future generations and ecosystems. Society’s response to its environmental problems in previous lost civilisations always proved significant. The institutions and cultural values affect whether the society solves (or even attempts to solve) its problems. Amid the projections for the world as climate

change worsens this century is a rising risk of species extinction, the effect on crops, displacement of more people and significant economic losses. There are few fortunes to be made in scientific research. The motivating factors are mainly to discover truths and leave a legacy for others to benefit in the future. Bruce Holmes Portarlington

A misapprehension Dear Editor, Jim Mason (“Not surprised”, Letters, May 1) is under a misapprehension if he thinks the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has got it right on climate change. The claim that carbon dioxide drives climate change must be challenged. The Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) disputes the claim the science on climate change is settled. Many scientists now query the IPCC view that carbon dioxide is primarily driving climate change including Dr. Takeda Kunihiko, the vicechancellor of the Institute of Science and Technology Research at Chubu University in Japan. The NIPCC point out that global temperatures over the past 17 years have gone sideways – despite the rapid increase in carbon emissions. It appears the IPCC is using cherry picked data and exaggerating the impact of fossil fuels on climate and so their conclusions should be taken with a grain of salt. Carbon dioxide is not the major greenhouse gas. Water vapour comprises 96 per cent of greenhouse gases and is 27 more times potent than CO2. Based on these figures, while CO2 is part of the climate mix, it’s incapable of causing global warming or any other catastrophe by itself. Trying to reduce CO2 emissions will have absolutely no impact on climate. The planet goes through regular warming and cooling cycles.

A Royal Commission should be convened on climate to test the veracity of global warming claims before Australia squanders billions on measures to try and achieve the unachievable. Remember King Canute? Alan Barron Grovedale

Sincere appreciation Dear Editor, A note of sincere appreciation to members of the Wallington CFA who turned out so promptly at about 9pm Monday April 28 to attend a grass fire at a local rural property, very close to the Wallington house where my daughter happened to be alone, acting temporarily as a house-sitter. Not only did these volunteers prevent a potentially dangerous fire spreading and causing any major damage, they gave up their evening to fight the fire, then to ensure all embers were extinguished, and returned the following morning to double check. They also provided great reassurance to we nonfire fighting people and they asked for nothing in return. A superb performance! Volunteers to be proud of, well done to all involved, we can’t thank you enough! Peter Cowden Clifton Springs

Boulevard of broken dreams Dear Editor, Once again the Surf Coast Shire has failed the ratepayers and residents of Jan Juc by agreeing to sell 175 square meters of land to the owner of 85 Torquay Boulevard. They have failed on three counts: 1. They have agreed to sell public land owned by the ratepayers of the Surf Coast Shire and in fact, the wider community, for the financial benefit of the owner.

2. Having agreed to sell the land for $111,000, they have short changed ratepayers to the tune of $50,000, with the land being worth the market rate of at least $160,000. 3. They have avoided the issue of the illegally constructed dwelling at the rear of the block. Council are setting a dangerous precedent saying if you want to be vexatious you can get the outcome you want for considerably less than you should, by reasonable community expectations, be expected to pay.

happening here for more than a generation (25years) that I can remember. Perhaps, if you do not like being around dogs, you should reconsider your move here as the Surf Coast boasts one of the highest rates of dog ownership in the country.

Dear Editor, During National Volunteer Week (12-18 May) we highlight the value volunteers bring to our communities and society. Volunteers add value not only to the lives of the people they support, but they add value to our community as a whole. They help build trust, relationships and connections within communities. While volunteer contribution in Australia is valued at up to $200 billion a year, it is all the vital social benefits they add to society that make volunteers priceless. Volunteers enhance community well-being and make communities stronger and more resilient. They share information, skills, resources and build bridges between people. Voluntary Service is a fundamental principle of the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement. Since our creation 100 years ago this year, Australian Red Cross has supported volunteers to make a difference in their communities. That’s how we started, that’s what made the difference, and that’s how we must continue. Today we are supported by over 30,000 volunteers. Our volunteers work with and support people in the community, helping to build connections and trusting relationships. Today we thank all volunteers. Our society is more supportive, connected and inclusive because of their generosity. We welcome you to join us in celebrating the contribution of volunteers – they truly are priceless.

Dogs don’t dominate Dear Editor, I cannot let Anne’s letter (“Dog’s dominate our beaches”, April 17) go unanswered. First of all, Jan Juc Beach is restricted from 9am-7pm for summer except the far eastern end; Torquay back beach is restricted from 9am-7pm for the summer; Fishermans Beach the same. I do not know where these kilometres of coastline are as the next unrestricted beach in summer is down past Anglesea. Anne, you mention pollution left by canines. I am yet to see a dog leave broken glass on the beach; I am yet to see a dog smoke on the beach; I am yet to see a dog leave fishing tackle on the beach; and, I am yet to see a dog let it’s puppies play on the restricted sand dunes like so many children do. Sure some dog poo gets left behind, but what if yours is pumped daily into the ocean via sites like Blackrock or better still the brown smear that is pumped into the ocean east of Lorne each summer and what of all those people swimming and surfing seeking to warm up their wetsuits? As far as a health hazard goes, all the research says that dogs are good for our health by getting people out exercising, meeting like-minded people and keeping people company. In fact, many of the local residents take their dogs for a walk, then onto a coffee shop for a chat with others that live this lifestyle here on the coast. One could almost say that owning a dog and living by the beach is cultural as it has been

Run to better health with the Mother’s Day Classic BY TIFFANY PILCHER HUNDREDS of runners will strap on their sneakers for the annual Mother’s Day Classic fun run, to be held at Geelong’s waterfront on Sunday. The Mother’s Day Classic is Australia’s largest breast cancer research fundraiser and there will be some special guests attending to lend their support. Steve and Chantelle, winners of Channel 9’s The Block; Fans vs Faves, will make presentations from the main stage, and local songstress Imogen Brough will perform on the day. Participants can choose to run or walk the fouror eight-kilometre events which will run along the Geelong foreshore. This year, the event will pass the $20 million mark in funds it has raised for the National Breast Cancer Foundation's research program.

Mother's Day Classic national chair Louise Davidson said as well as funding research, taking part in Mother's Day Classic was also a great way to show support and solidarity to those in the community dealing with breast cancer. “Mother's Day Classic is a celebration of spirit and hope that together we can contribute to making breast cancer history.” Online registrations close at 11.59pm on Friday May 8, to register, donate or volunteer, head to mothersdayclassic.com.au. If you can’t make it to the Mother’s Day Classic, you can still make the day count by donating to the Breast Cancer Institute of Australia (BCIA). For making a donation, you will receive a special Mother’s Day card to give to your mum which Some Mother’s Day Classic competitors took to the challenge in Torquay last year, while others acknowledges your donation. Visit bcia.org.au to had fun clowning around. Those keen to participate this year will need to head into the Geelong event. Photo: PETER MARSHALL make your donation today or call 1800 423 444.

Award entries open for brilliant business women SOUTH Barwon MP Andrew Katos has called for the Geelong community to celebrate brilliant local business women by nominating them for the 2014 Telstra Business Women’s Awards. As the longest-running state/territory and national awards program for business women, the Telstra Business Women’s Awards provide an opportunity to showcase the Geelong region’s inspirational female leaders in business.

“I urge the community to get behind our local business women by nominating them for the 2014 Telstra Business Women’s Awards,” Mr Katos said. “The awards recognise business women whose passion, creativity, leadership and success make a positive impact to our community and inspire other women to walk in their footsteps and reach their own goals. “Twenty years ago the Telstra Business Women’s

Awards encouraged women to break through the glass ceiling; today they play an important role in encouraging diversity in business in Australia.” Winners and finalists across Australia share in a total prize pool of more than $650,000. The awards have three qualifying categories for business owners, employees in the private and corporate sector and employees in community and government agencies.

Entrants can also be considered for two specialist categories for innovation and young business women. Visit womensawards.com or call 1800 817 536 to make a nomination. Entries can be submitted from May 26 and close July 14. Winners of the 2014 Telstra Victorian Business Women’s Awards will be named at a gala dinner on October 21.

COMMUNITY groups across the Bellarine and Geelong region can apply for grants of up to $30,000 to redevelop and modify existing Men’s Sheds. Upper house Nationals Member David O’Brien encouraged community groups with existing Men’s Sheds, which includes Leopold, Clifton Springs, Ocean Grove, Queenscliff and St Leonards on the Bellarine, to apply for the latest round of grants from the state government’s Strengthening Men’s Sheds Initiative. “Men’s Sheds play a very important role in our region and are one of the most powerful tools we have in helping men to remain valued and valuable members of our community,� Mr O’Brien said. “Most Aussie men have learned from our culture that they don’t talk about feelings and emotions. “It’s probably largely because of this that many men are prone to suffer more from isolation, loneliness and depression.� Mr O’Brien said becoming a member of a Men’s Shed gave a man a safe and busy environment where he could connect with friends and maintain an active body and active mind in an atmosphere of oldfashioned mateship. The grants can be used for refurbishment for expanding activities due to a growing need or community demand, modifications to increase disability access, or modifications to meet OHS standards. Funding is available to incorporated not-for-profit

organisations and local councils. Applications for grants close on Friday June 27. For more information, head to dhs.vic.gov.au/for-business-and-community, click on the “Community Involvement� tab, then click on the “Men in the community� link.

Queenscliff Men’s Shed members Ron North, Lindsay Chatterton, Neil Clowes, Max Reed and Barry Sykes help recycle bikes and then give them to refugees.

Salvos call on businesses to help empower people THE Bellarine Peninsula Salvos hope to raise more than $50,000 for this year’s Red Shield Appeal. But as the fundraising campaign approaches on May 24 and 25, the Salvation Army are not only depending on the community to dig deep to raise money, but also looking for business and community groups to partner with them to help empower people and positive futures. Lieutenant Peter Hobbs from the Salvation Army Bellarine Peninsula said the Red Shield Appeal wasn’t just about raising money for the Army, it was also about raising awareness that there were people still in need in our communities. “It doesn't take much to give someone a smile, ask if they are ok or even say a prayer for someone... What society needs are people who care,� he said. Ground Zero Cafe owner Josh Williams in Drysdale, who is getting behind the appeal, said he knew the Salvos did a great job, but they

couldn’t do it alone and needed support. “Many of the people we support not only need specialised welfare/community services, but ultimately they need positive, caring and trusting community,� Mr Williams said. Lt. Hobbs said the Bellarine Peninsula Salvos had seen local businesses join them to help make a difference, such as the Drysdale Smash Repairs helping with the Salvo Resto Project and The Bellarine Estate Winery in the Faith Future Restaurant project. “Both these businesses have given their time and money to support young people in the community, giving them valuable experience in their specialised trades, but most importantly giving these young people a sense of caring and supportive community,� he said.

Things neither its beak nor its belly can hold BY HAMISH BROOKS A BARWON Heads pelican that was suffering from severe injuries from ingesting fish hooks has been rehabilitated and released back into the wild. Robyn Rule from Torquay Wildlife shelter cared for the bird during its convalescence and said Barwon Heads residents had been very concerned about the injured pelican that was first sighted on the Barwon River two months ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The pelican was suffering from extreme fish hook injuries in its body and had a severe infection caused by the hooks by the time it was rescued by an independent wildlife carer,â&#x20AC;? Ms Rule said.

Once the pelican was captured, it was transported to the vet and subsequently cared for by Ms Rule at Torquay Wildlife Shelter. The pelican was medicated with antibiotics until it was ready for release at the beginning of last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For this pelican, there was a happy ending. However, some are not so lucky. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because these birds live in the same areas that people like to fish, there is potential for birds and sea mammals, such as seals, to become hooked and tangled in fishing line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By far the most common cause of injury is the accidental hooking when birds and seals forage near active fishers.â&#x20AC;? Ms Rule said despite the obvious injuries of

The rehabilitated Barwon Heads pelican is released into the Barwon River at Barwon Heads last week.

the hooks embedding in the flesh of the animals, hidden injuries occur when the bait containing a hook is swallowed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These hooks catch on the inside of the animalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s throat and stomach causing tearing and internal bleeding. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once the animal is hooked, it leaves the animal susceptible to infection which can cause long term suffering and a painful death. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But by fishing responsibly, we can prevent injuries to wildlife.â&#x20AC;?

A few tips to help protect the animals that share our waterways: â&#x20AC;˘ Cast away from birds foraging where you are fishing. â&#x20AC;˘ Attend to your fishing gear at all times and do not leave baited hooks unattended. â&#x20AC;˘ Collect any rubbish or discarded line you find. Cut it up and dispose of it in the bin. â&#x20AC;˘ Take care not to discard fishing waste that may contain hooks. â&#x20AC;˘ If you do hook a bird, it is important to stay calm and do not cut the line. Gently reel the bird in and place a towel over its eyes to limit exposing the animal to excessive stress. â&#x20AC;˘ If the hook can be easily removed, cut the barb and remove the hook and line. It is vital not to release the bird if hooks have been swallowed or are too deeply embedded for easy removal. If you do hook a bird or seal or come across injured wildlife, call Robyn Rule from Torquay Wildlife Shelter on 0402 237 600 or Help for Wildlife on 0417 380 687. Help for Wildlife is a volunteer organisation that provides a 24-hour emergency response service for injured, sick and orphaned wildlife across Victoria.

Health warning: fearsome fungi finishes lives AUTUMN conditions have created ideal growing conditions for poisonous mushrooms, Victoria’s deputy chief health officer, Dr Michael Ackland, warned last week. “People should avoid gathering wild mushrooms around Melbourne, in rural Victoria and from their own gardens because of the risk of collecting poisonous varieties which may appear very similar to edible varieties,” Dr Ackland said. He identified the dangers of two of the state’s most dangerous varieties, the death cap fungus, Amanita phalloides, and the yellow staining mushroom, Agaricus xanthodermus. The warning coincides with the arrival of the mushrooming season, spawned when rain encourages growth of the fungi in the still warm earth.

“Poisonings can occur when people gathering wild mushrooms inadvertently include toxic species,” Dr Ackland said. Dr Tom May, mycologist at the Royal Botanic Gardens, said the death cap is widespread across Melbourne in both public and private gardens and also occurs in Victorian regional areas. “The Death Cap can appear throughout the year but it is most common a week or two after good rains in autumn, so we could expect a bumper crop about now,” Dr May said. Dr Ackland said if you enjoy eating mushrooms, the best place to obtain them is from a commercial retail food outlet. All mushrooms sold through commercial outlets in Victoria are safe to consume. “Anyone who becomes ill after eating mushrooms should seek urgent medical advice and,

Victoria’s deputy Chief Health Officer, Dr Michael Ackland, issued a warning about Amanita phalloides, the deadly death cap fungus pictured here.

if possible, take samples of the whole mushroom for identification,” Dr Ackland said. “The symptoms of poisoning may take 10-16 hours to appear after eating and will most likely be stomach pains, vomiting and diarrhoea.” The most dangerous variety is the death cap, found near deciduous trees, in particular oak trees, in some Melbourne suburbs and rural areas. The death cap is a large mushroom, with a cap ranging from light olive green to greenish yellow in colour. The gills are white, and the base of the stem is surrounded by a cup-shaped sac.

“The Death Cap is extremely toxic and responsible for 90 per cent of all mushroom poisoning deaths. Death can follow within 48 hours,” Dr Ackland said. Dr Ackland said the commonly found yellow staining mushroom turns yellow when the cap or stem is bruised by a thumbnail. “These are often gathered and mixed with field mushrooms. Eating these mushrooms can also cause nausea, abdominal pain and diarrhoea in some people,” Dr Ackland said. “If you have any doubts about a species of fungus or mushroom, don’t eat it.”

Record amount raised for veterans’ welfare SALES of badges and wristbands in the days leading up to Anzac Day this year raised a record amount of money to assist veterans’ welfare needs. The generosity of the Torquay community in raising $8,850 for its returned service men and women was praised by grateful Torquay RSL president Ian Gilbank. “The people of Torquay dug deep in their support of the Anzac Appeal this year,” he said. “What impressed me the most was that the donations came from all age groups and every walk of life. “The number of people that just gave a donation without the need to take a badge in return was amazing. “All of the $8,850 will be dedicated to welfare work. “Half of the monies raised will go to RSL Victorian branch for overall welfare work throughout Victoria, and the remaining $4,425 will be retained by Torquay RSL for local welfare purposes. “Torquay RSL raises its welfare money from the sale of badges and wristbands in April for Anzac Day and poppies in November for Remembrance Day.”

Mr Gilbank said there was a growing and varied need for welfare assistance to ex-service men and women and war widows. “Not only do we need to look after older veterans and war widows, but there is a growing need to help younger veterans who have served in recent conflicts such as Iraq and Afghanistan.” Mr Gilbank thanked the local volunteers who had given so much of their time to selling badges and wristbands during April. “Their work is greatly appreciated. “None complained at the long hours they staffed selling points and not one failed to turn up for their rostered times unless through illness. They are a great bunch of people.” Mr Gilbank also thanked local appeal organiser Allen Osman for his efforts. “Allen did a great job organising sellers for every day leading up to Anzac Day and replenishing sales points to make sure sellers did not run out of badges,” he said. “As well, some local traders displayed badges and wristbands on their counters, and their support helped bring Torquay’s Anzac sales to a record level. “We are deeply grateful to them.”

Gas heater services crucial FOUR years after her young sons died from carbon monoxide poisoning from a faulty gas heater, Shepparton mother Vanessa Robinson urged Victorians to not become complacent about servicing gas heaters. She joined with Energy Safe Victoria to launch Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week in Melbourneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bourke Street Mall last week. For the second year running Energy Safe Victoria and Ms Robinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chase and Tyler Foundation are campaigning to raise awareness of the risk posed by gas heaters and urge Victorians to take action to protect themselves and their families. After the May 2010 deaths of Ms Robinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

six and eight-year-old sons from carbon monoxide poisoning caused by a faulty gas heater in their Shepparton home, the bereaved mother said regular servicing is the most reliable way to detect whether a gas heater may be leaking odourless, colourless and potentially fatal carbon monoxide. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After my children died of carbon monoxide poisoning many Victorians got their gas heaters serviced but that was four years ago â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want people to become complacent so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m reminding them that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a one-off thing. Make it a regular habit so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t experience a tragedy like mine.â&#x20AC;? Victoriaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Director of Energy Safety Paul Fearon said Energy Safe Victoria recommends

regular servicing a minimum of every two years by a registered gasfitter to protect against carbon monoxide poisoning, which is otherwise undetectable and can cause chronic illness or death. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As the weather turns cold people will be turning their gas heaters on and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vital that they are working properly and have been recently serviced by a gasfitter,â&#x20AC;? Mr Fearon said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Find a gasfitter in your local area and when you book a service, make sure they are reputable and ask whether they have the equipment to check for carbon monoxide emissions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it properly find somebody else who can.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whether your gas heater is brand new or an older model, you need to make a habit of arranging a regular service because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only way to be sure that your appliance is safe.â&#x20AC;? The two-yearly servicing recommendation applies to all types of gas heaters including central heating units, wall and space heaters. ESV and The Chase and Tyler Foundation will be visiting shopping centres around Melbourne throughout Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week to hand out free information and talk directly with householders about regular servicing of appliances. More information can be found at esv.vic.gov.au and chaseandtyler.org.au.

THE verdict is in – the ultimate winner of the Wish You Were Here postcard art prize is Apollo Bay’s Nicola Philp. Purrumbete South acclaimed artist and filmmaker Luis Bayonas agonised over choosing the winning images from a field of almost 200 works at Red Rock Regional Theatre and Gallery, COPACC and Apollo Bay Arts Inc. “I hate picking one, it’s a horrible thing to do because there are so many good ones,” Mr Bayonas said. An art teacher at Apollo Bay P-12 School, Nicola Philp has won an artist’s retreat at Cape Otway Lightstation for her Saturday Sailing – a lively work of a yacht sailing at Apollo Bay. Nicola’s entry won the Coasting category of the art prize which is being exhibited at the Apollo Bay Arts Inc Gallery each weekend in May. Forrest artist Sandy Taylor-Smith won the Hinterland category, with her mixed media work There be baby dragons in this Forrest, which is on display with the other Hinterland entries at COPACC. Birregurra’s Liz Braid won the Lakes, Craters and Rural Life category at Cororooke’s Red Rock Regional Theatre and Gallery (RRRTAG) with her minimalist work Cows in Paddock. Deans Marsh 12-year-old Alice Phillips mixed media My Favourite Bird in the Hen House is the winner of the children’s category at RRRTAG. St Mary’s student Olivia Montano won the children’s category of Hinterland at COPACC with her watercolour Flowers. From a vibrant field of children’s submissions for Coasting, Mr Bayonas judged Oceania Pearl the Mermaid, by three-year-old Oceania MurrayMcAllister as the winning entry. Wish You Were Here is the first initiative of Creative Otways – a community group formed to advocate for the arts and artists across Colac Otway Shire. Creative Otways secretary Karen Patterson said the group was happy to have created the first cross-

shire exhibition which would be simultaneously shown at the three exhibition spaces for the month of May. The winning children will all receive a family pass to a COPACC performance and the winning adults will receive printed postcards of their work. RRRTAG is serving a Devonshire tea in connection with Wish You Were Here on Mother’s Day, Sunday May 11, from 11am-3pm. Wish You Were Here is open every day at COPACC in May from 11am-8pm, and at Apollo Bay and RRTAG galleries on Saturdays and Sundays in May.

Expo explains how trees make change BY TIFFANY PILCHER

Lyn and Ross George are welcoming everyone to their Barrabool Hills property this weekend for their Tree Change Expo.

New CFA trucks bound for the regions THE state government has allocated $17.2 million dollars in the 2014/15 budget to build dozens of new firefighting vehicles which has been welcomed by CFA. The announcement is part of a $29 million investment in 78 new trucks, including 74 medium tankers to be built over the next year. CFA chief officer Euan Ferguson said the announcement would be welcomed by CFA firefighters and the communities they serve. “These state of the art firefighting vehicles mean Victoria can claim one of the most advanced firefighting fleets in Australia,” Mr Ferguson said. The design and manufacture of the majority of previous CFA vehicles was done in Ballarat and Sunshine, and it’s expected most of the new fleet will again be built in Victoria. “CFA is very proud to be supporting local manufacturing, it represents a huge investment into local communities.” Torquay CFA captain Phil Campbell said the budget announcement was great news for regional Victoria. “There are a few tankers getting on a bit in our region and this renewal

program will help us all in the long run. “The better the equipment, the better we can protect the lives and assets of our community, and the volunteers who risk their lives defending them.” CFA volunteers were instrumental in the design, testing and delivery of the medium tankers. “We received very positive and productive feedback from more than 1,200 CFA volunteers which ensured the vehicles were the best they could be,” Mr Ferguson said. The CFA volunteers’ association said the announcement of 78 new trucks for volunteer brigades is good news for CFA volunteers. Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria (VFBV) chief executive officer Andrew Ford said the trucks are being directed to the right end of the fleet. “Seventy-four of the new trucks will be modern medium tankers, which were designed with VFBV and volunteer involvement and will go to volunteer Brigades in country Victoria and the outer suburbs, where the need is greatest,” Mr Ford said. CFA has already begun planning where the new trucks will be deployed following their expected completion around the middle of next year.

A SPRAWLING Barabool Hills property will be open to the public this weekend to give people ideas on how they can best make use of their land. Ross and Lyn George have been at their property for 12 years and the George family has lived in Barabool Hills since the 1880s. This weekend, they will join with the Barrabool Hills Landcare and the Otway Agroforestry Network to explore all the possibilities that integrating trees and shrubs into your own property can bring with their Tree Change Expo.

There are a wide range of information sessions available, including detailed sessions on Cyprus Canker with the Department of Environment and Primary Industries’ David Smith. There will also be lots of activities and demonstrations on a variety of topics including birds for biodiversity, water watch, bush tucker, direct seeding, plant propagation, wine tastings, wind turbines, solar pumps and much more. Local produce will be available as well as soups, sandwiches, local wines and beers, bush flavoured ice creams and coffee.

Ms George said: “It will be a celebration of the area and its produce and will suit families and people with a few acres”. “We’ll have activities for kids and it’s going to be a great day to come out and see how nature works and how you can work with it.” The Tree Change Expo will be held on Saturday May 10 from 10am to 4pm at 130 Georges Road, Ceres.

Tragedy on Australian roads remembered with powerful installation WITH the aim of reducing the nation’s road toll, the iconic Sydney Opera House and Harbour Bridge will become the backdrop to a powerful road safety event. The event, held on the last Friday in May, will feature “road safety pledging” by the top dignitaries, as well as compelling imagery to drive the message home. Featuring a display of 1,193 number plates – one for every life lost on Australian roads last year – the New South Wales Government and New South Wales Police joined forces with leading road safety activist Russell White, of the Australian Road Safety Foundation, to launch the countdown to Australia’s largest community-based road safety initiative – Fatality Free Friday. The initiative of the Australian Road Safety Foundation calls for road users to make a promise to themselves, their family and friends to consciously drive safely and obey road rules. Australian Road Safety Foundation chief executive officer Russell White said through extensive advocacy programs and public events, Fatality Free Friday spread the road safety message to more than 10 million road users last year and achieved a record number of pledges. “This year, we expect that with the support of local, state and federal governments, our corporate

partners, as well as a number of state police forces, we’ll be able to reach even more Australian road users and achieve the ultimate outcome of saving lives on our roads,” Mr White said. “At the end of the day, each and every one of us is the key to road safety – every time we take to the road we make a number of decisions which can be the difference between life and death. “Our hope is that through education campaigns like Fatality Free Friday, we can reduce the number of men, women and children who unnecessarily lose their lives on Australian roads.” Last year, there was an eight per cent reduction in deaths on Australian roads compared to the year before but tragically, close to 1,200 people lost their lives. As well as attending one of the many Fatality Free Friday public signing events in the lead up to and on the day, road users are also able to make their road safety pledge by visiting fatalityfreefriday.com or on the Fatality Free Friday Facebook page. This year, the Australian Road Safety Foundation will also be releasing a series of YouTube videos to help further educate drivers about road safety by taking a journey into the past with historic cars and a special appearance of a replica (from Back to the Future) Delorean time machine.

Reducing serious injuries on the agenda

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.

AN Australian-first road safety leadership event in Melbourne has aimed to reduce serious injuries. The two day Towards Zero Road Safety Leadership Symposium, led by the state government’s Ministerial Road Safety Council, heard how coordinated community action was needed to stop the trend of more than 5,500 people being injured on Victoria’s roads each year. Assistant Treasurer Gordon Rich-Phillips said the government had set a target of reducing deaths and serious injuries by 30 per cent by 2022 when launching its Road Safety Strategy a year ago. “While fatalities have reduced significantly in Victoria with the lowest road toll in 90 years, serious injuries are not slowing at the same rate,” Mr RichPhillips said. “The Towards Zero Symposium brought together international and local knowledge to show Victoria’s leaders that we have the tools available to reduce road trauma and how best they could put them into practice. “The symposium also included the release of the new interactive online statistics Dashboard, which

helped the community track the progress of Victoria’s road safety goals and provides a closer look at how each sector of the Safe System – vehicles, roads, speeds and road users – are impacting on Victoria’s most serious crashes.” The government is aiming to reduce serious crashes by 30 per cent by 2022. Roads Minister Terry Mulder said Victoria was known as a state at the forefront of road safety and the symposium would help transform the Towards Zero vision into reality. “When the Victorian government released the Road Safety Strategy last year, we promised aggressive and effective new measures to punish those who disregard or flout the law,” Mr Mulder said. “That’s why the new laws were announced, which will create a specific offence for driving or riding under the combined influence of drugs and alcohol – Victoria is one of the few jurisdictions in the world to do this. “For drivers who think they can drink and drive, we are also introducing impoundment or

immobilisation of their vehicles if they are over 0.10.” Mr Mulder said motorcycle riders would have a safer start on the roads, with the introduction of a new Graduated Licensing System later this year. It includes improved training, education and testing, as well as some restrictions to ensure newly licensed motorcyclists were better prepared and less likely to be injured in crashes. Police and Emergency Services Minister Kim Wells said many significant actions from the Road Safety Action Plan had been delivered over the past year, including a $1 billion commitment over 10 years to improve infrastructure along hundreds of high risk roads and intersections. The inaugural Towards Road Safety Awards, presented by the Assistant Treasurer, recognised leadership and innovation in Victorian road safety, as well as the best road safety media reporting. The symposium was supported by Victoria’s road safety partners, TAC, VicRoads, Victoria Police and Department of Justice.

Lakes and rivers awash with fish BY HAMISH BROOKS THE state government has splashed the cash on schools in this year’s budget and splashes continue to feature in a program that has seen an additional two million native fish stocked into lakes and rivers for the fourth consecutive year. The stocking is part of the government’s $16 million Recreational Fishing Initiative. Agriculture and Food Security Minister Peter Walsh said the total included more than 1.2 million golden perch and a record 107,000 estuary perch fingerlings. Murray Cod, trout cod, Australian bass, Macquarie perch, silver perch and catfish were also stocked. “The Coalition government recognises the economic and social contribution of recreational fishing to our state and is committed to improving opportunities for anglers,” Mr Walsh said. “The initiative is also installing fish cleaning

tables and fishing reefs, expanding angler access, improving fish passageways and strengthening fisheries enforcement and education.” Mr Walsh said Fisheries Victoria’s Snobs Creek Hatchery had produced a significant number of the native fish stocked, including 514,000 Murray cod. “Snobs Creek also produced very good numbers of Macquarie perch and trout cod, both of which are classified as threatened species. “Trout cod remain off limits to anglers for now while several stocked fisheries are developed.” Most Murray cod were stocked into Lake Nagambie, the Goulburn River, Gunbower Creek, Loddon River, Kangaroo Lake, Lake Eppalock, Lake Eildon and Cairn Curran Reservoir. Waters stocked with golden perch included Lake Eppalock, Lake Hume, Loddon River, Campaspe River, Lake Eildon, Kow Swamp, Broken River, Wimmera River and Taylors Lake. Visit depi.vic.gov.au/nativefish2014 for a list of waters stocked with native fish in 2013/14.

Trout cod were among the native species stocked this year as part of the state government’s Recreational Fishing Initiative, although they remain off limits to anglers while several fisheries are developed.

RURAL ROUND-UP

Answers sought for unexplained deaths BY DEAN WEBSTER WITH the autumn lambing season about to get into full swing, Department of Environment and Primary Health (DEPI) animal health staff are keen to hear from producers who have experienced a death or deaths and would like to take part in the Lamb and Kid Mortality Surveillance Project. The project builds on a successful 2009-12 study and is now focusing on losses between the end of pregnancy and weaning, but excluding peri-natal deaths (death at birth). DEPI district veterinary officer Dr Rachael Holmes said lamb and kid mortality accounted for considerable production losses in sheep and goat herds across Victoria. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As part of the Lamb and Kid Mortality Surveillance Project DEPI is investigating where and why these losses are happening,â&#x20AC;? Dr Holmes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;DEPI will investigate the death of any lamb or kid that happens on a commercial farm. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A post-mortem is performed and samples sent away to the laboratory to help identify cause of death.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The information is then used to develop strategies to reduce losses and increase productivity and profitability across the board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All investigations are conducted free-of-charge to producers by qualified DEPI staff, with funding support from the Sheep and Goat Compensation Advisory Committee. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The farmer is given a written report that includes the findings, including the likely cause of death and what can be done to avoid or treat new cases in the future.â&#x20AC;? The criteria that make a lamb or kid death eligible for investigation include: - single or more deaths in lambs or kids - minimum four days old and up to two weeks after weaning - maximum of two animals can be necropsied per outbreak. It is anticipated that 100 investigations will be conducted each year, until June 2015. If you have a potential case for this project contact your local DEPI animal health officer or district veterinary officer. Alternatively, phone the DEPI Customer Service Centre on 136 186 and an officer in your area will return your call.

International Composting Awareness Week on now BY DEAN WEBSTER THE Centre for Organic Research and Education (CORE) has opened the 9th International Composting Awareness Week (ICAW). ICAW aims to bring together the resource recovery and environment industry, local government and communities. It is an opportunity for practitioners to reach their stakeholders and communities, online and through wider events and activities. CORE chairman Eric Love welcomed ICAWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ambassador, well-known gardening television personality and

International Composting Awareness Week ambassador Costa Georgiadis.

compost guru Costa Georgiadis, and many compost and organic industry participants and supporters at the official launch during the week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The program and international week of activities still serves to encourage composting, whether large or small scale, increasing the value placed on organic waste and stimulating compost utilisation in all sectors,â&#x20AC;? Mr Love said. Larger scale composting is gaining momentum on farms in the Surf Coast and Bellarine with composting rows now a familiar part of the rural landscape as farmers try to increase organic matter in their soils and reduce the reliance on fertilisers. Some interesting facts around composting include: â&#x20AC;˘ Australians are the third highest waste producers in the world, after Americans and Canadians. â&#x20AC;˘ Australians now throw away 4 million tonnes of food every year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; up to a quarter of the country's food supplies. â&#x20AC;˘ If everyone composted, the total waste going to landfill could decrease by up to a third. ICAW aims to: â&#x20AC;˘ Increase the diversion of organics from the main waste stream through increasing awareness of and participation in centralised composting, kerbside, home composting and community composting

Colac cattle market report BY DEAN WEBSTER THERE was strong competition fuelling buyer demand at last Friday’s Colac store cattle sale, which was good news for farmers like Nigel Barry of "Corangamite Park", who sold 21 gelv/red angus cross steers averaging 346 kilograms for $730. Also breaking through the $2.10 per kilogram barrier was John Woodward of "Moolaboola", who sold a pen of 35 black steers averaging 330 kilograms for $705. Charles Stewart livestock agent Gerard Bohan said that all in all, Friday’s sale was good, and similar to Warrnambool's store sale the week before. He said a good early break had created excellent local demand and both Mr Barry and Mr Woodward presented their cattle in great condition, and their efforts had been rewarded with prices exceeding $2.10 per kilogram, a great improvement on the same time last year. There was a much larger yarding of cattle for the previous day’s Colac fat sale with quality improved for the near usual field of buyers. Demand was strong for young cattle but cow inquiry was weaker. Prices averaged 10 cents higher for good-quality young cattle and firm for the D2 grades, while cows overall sold 10 cents a kilogram cheaper. Grown heifers were around 5 cents a kilogram dearer. Restockers and processors mainly paid between 165 cents and 195 cents for C2 and C3 young cattle with several pens of yearlings up to a top of 213 cents and the odd vealer sales to 220 cents a kilogram. The 294 head also saw the D2 grades make from 120 cents to 155 cents, with restockers paying up to 163 cents a kilogram. Most C3 and C4 grown steers sold in a range of 185 cents to 200 cents, with two sales at 207

cents and 211 cents a kilogram in the good quality yarding of 151 head. The 135 grown heifers had most three and four scores between 156 cents and 168 cents, with odd sales from 174 cents to 185 cents a kilogram. The D1 grades made 125 cents to 134 cents and

the D2s from 140 cents to 152 cents a kilogram. The very mixed penning of 262 cows averaged 310 cents a kilogram cwt (carcass weight) for a run of two to four scores. The D1 cows made from 108 cents to 132 cents, while the plain selection of D2s went from 127 cents

to 142 cents a kliogram. The three to five score cows sold between 143 cents and 156 cents, with the best sales at 162 cents a kilogram. In the line-up of 11 heavy weight bulls the B2 grade sold from 130 cents to 155 cents a kilogram.

Art takes flight at Geelong’s night of nights

Parkour masters Trace Elements will be performing stunts at the Geelong Waterfront tomorrow night. Their show is just one of many that will fill the streets of the city as part of Geelong After Dark.

BY TIFFANY PILCHER THE creative creatures of the night will come out to play on Friday for a new cultural event, Geelong After Dark. The event, which will feature free spontaneous performances, music and art installations, aims to reinvigorate the city and is being held in conjunction with the Mountain to Mouth (M-M2014) extreme arts walk. More than 30 pop-up performances, exhibitions and interactive activities will take place through the heart of the city from 6pm to 10pm. One of the highlights will be a series of film screenings at the Open4 Rooftop Cinema at Civic Carpark.

Trace Elements members are masters of movement and the group is made up of professional athletes, artists and performers who have worked overseas and extensively around Australia. Parkour is in its essence, getting from one place to another in the quickest and most efficient way possible, overcoming any obstacle encountered through the use of the body. With its roots in French military training, it’s a spectacular way to view the extreme abilities of the human body. Elsewhere throughout the city, there will also be theatre, projection art, soundscapes, graffiti battles, musical performances by Duelling Organs, Aine Tyrrell, Grace Notes Vocal Trio and much more. It will be a great night out for kids too with performances, exhibitions and activities created specifically for children.

The Painters and Dockers Trio are performing a rare show at Wolseley Wines this Sunday.

Painters and Dockers tie up in Torquay BY TIFFANY PILCHER MEMBERS of the cult Melbourne pub rock band Painters and Dockers are playing a rare gig at Wolseley Wines on Sunday. Performing as the Painters and Dockers Trio, Paulie Stewart will be on lead vocal with Colin Badger on guitar and Torquay resident Dave Pace on trumpet and vocals. The band caused a stir in the 1980s with their tongue-in-cheek hits including “Nude School”, “You’re Going Home in the Back of a Divy Van” and “Die Yuppie Die”. Pace, who is a long time Torquay local and also a teacher at Torquay College, said he couldn’t wait to get the band back together for a Surf Coast gig. “I am really looking forward to playing a local

show and I encourage everyone to come down and support live music on the coast. “You’ll hear some old Dockers tunes played with a twist, nice and simple, with two vocals, one guitar and a trumpet. “We tell stories and play the songs that span three decades in the industry. We also can’t wait to taste the amazing wines and wood fired pizzas that Wolseley Wines is famous for.” The Beachniks will also be playing on the day as an acoustic trio. The Painters and Dockers Trio are playing at Wolseley Wines, 1,790 Hendy Main Road, Paraparap from 3-6pm on Sunday May 11, tickets are $15 each and wine and gourmet pizzas will be available. For more information, visit wolseleywines.com.

Tipple treats for mum

OK, so there’s a mother lode of great stuff out there on offer for this weekend’s celebration of Mother’s Day, and wading through all the marketing junk in the mail got me thinking, she’s got this, she’s got that, what am I going to do or get her that will brighten her special day? Now my mum’s not into wine or alcoholic drinks so I think I’ll have to come up with the usual, ie my presence for starters (it’s been awhile), some flowers and maybe some choice little knick knack from some gifty/girly shop, (Hi Mum, I’m sure you’re reading this – see you on Sunday!), but if yours likes the odd tipple or two, well then here’s three different little treats guaranteed to put a smile on her face. I know I usually talk about wine here, but I thought it’d be more interesting to look at something different for a change from the usual sweet or sparkling wine for mum’s out there. So, to all the Mum’s out there, have a great day this Mother’s Day!

Valdespino “El Candado” Pedro Ximenez ($40) Affectionately known as “black sherry”, let me introduce to you the absolute deliciousness that is sherry made in the province of the wonderfully named ‘Andalusia’ region of Spain from the grape known as Pedro Ximenez – a dark, sweet, hedonistically rich fortified wine not unlike the Muscats and Tokays of our very own Rutherglen region. Quite a powerhouse style wise, as the already very ripe grapes are additionally concentrated by “raisining” on mats for at least two weeks, then vinified and barrel matured. Very dark in colour with deep, intensely sweet flavours that are quite viscous on the palate and best served as an after dinner treat with chocolate desserts and the like. This example from Valdespino is so good

it’s got a lock and key on it! Since 1822, they’ve been drying out the pedro ximenez grapes in the sun to concentrate and intensify the dark mahogany colour, the deep raisin aromas, and the rich, unctuous flavours. Be sure to find a good hiding place for the key!

Bailey’s Chocolat Luxe 500ml ($33) I first saw/heard about this new product from Baileys in one of those weekend magazines and immediately ordered some the next Monday morning as it sounded so good, especially as Easter was just around the corner at the time! Just imagine for a moment if you will, the classic taste of Baileys Irish Cream judiciously blended with Madagascan vanilla and real Belgian chocolate – mmm, yum! The creator of this new concoction apparently spent more than three years developing over 800 recipes to finally arrive at this final blend (good work if you can get it!) that is likened to eating a piece of chocolate… bring it on!

Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Dry Gin 500ml ($79) Now if your Mum’s a bit of a gin queen, then this will really get her taste buds excited! Made in Schwarzwald (the Black Forrest) in Germany, this is a powerhouse of flavour and complexity that uses 47 botanicals in its production and is 47 per cent alcohol by volume, hence it’s name – Monkey 47. Some of the botanicals include Black Forrest berries, grains of paradise, wild juniper, pimento, honeysuckle, acacia, Kaffir Lime, and bitter orange among a host of others that I’ve never heard of before but sound very exotic indeed. A very complex take on the traditional style of London dry gin, this is best served neat or on the rocks, definitely one for the connoisseur.

Literary Fest shows Aireys’ best BY TIFFANY PILCHER HUNDREDS of bookworms, authors and writers all came together in Aireys Inlet and Fairhaven for the 2014 Lighthouse Literary Fest, held from April 24 to 27. The sold-out biennial event was a huge success with scores of people turning out for a weekend of ideas, discussion and entertainment. There was a range of insightful workshops as

well as talks and discussion groups, music by Nice Work and readings from well-known actors Marta Dusseldorp and Steve Bisley. Experienced authors including Robert Drewe shared their experiences and audiences were also introduced to first-time novelists. A highlight of the festival was the moving Saturday night multimedia event, Coast, in which the land around Aireys Inlet and its first inhabitants were celebrated and honoured

through words and music. Festival director Hannie Rayson said she was overwhelmed by the response to this year's event. “Among the thirty novelists, filmmakers, historians, memoirists and actors who attended the weekend, the most common remark was, ‘This is the audience, from heaven’. “Everyone fell in love with our Surf Coast audience – a 300 strong gathering of readers –

who stayed from Friday to Sunday in a sublime location overlooking the ocean, meeting some of Australia's finest writers, thinkers and actors. “David Tournier and didgeridoo player Norm Stanley from the Wathaurong Aboriginal Collective provided the most moving Welcome to Country that I have ever witnessed. “Our problem now is how we fit everyone in, who wants to come in 2016.”

Crime weaves its web of intrigue Sea of Words A CRIME book with a touch of humour will next week feature in the Borough of Queenscliffe’s Sea of Words festival. Fast-paced, funny and totally engaging, Kathryn Ledson’s Monkey Business cleverly blends adventure and romance to provide an irresistible read. Mr Ledson will be at The Bookshop at Queenscliff on Friday May 16 at 4.30pm to promote her book. Sea of Words is a community celebration of Crowds packed into the new Fairhaven Surf Life Saving Club last month for one of the many events of offer at the 2014 Lighthouse Literary Fest.

The perfect place for delicious food with a view Enjoy a mix of your old favourites and “new school bistro” dishes while taking in some of Torquay’s unbeatable ocean views LOCATED at 47 The Esplanade, Bistro on the Green at the Torquay Lawn Bowls Club, which has just undergone a $2 million renovation, is the perfect place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Customers can take in views of Zeally Bay or “Fishos” during the day, while at night the bistro,

which can seat 100 people, has an old school club feel about it. The bistro is run by Torquay locals Ronnie Dabu, a local legend in the Torquay and Falls Creek Alpine food scene, and his partner Kylie Emmett.

Ms Emmett grew up in Torquay working either in one of her mum’s many cafes around the town, including catering in the old Bowls Club kitchen, or travelling overseas on her hospitality skills, while Mr Dabu has had a major influence in the food scene around Geelong, Bellarine and Surf Coast since the early 80s. Ms Emmett said Ron was having a great time running the kitchen and cooking his usual east meets west fare. The seafood chowder served in custom made sourdough boules by the Zeally Bay Sourdough crew seems to be a favourite. “We visited family in San Fransisco last November and checked out the home of sourdough, the Boudin factory,” Ms Emmet said. “Little did we know but John and Jan from Zeally Bay Sourdough were there at the same time – so we had to put it on the menu.” There is a lot of seafood on offer, as well as NY cut steak, rib eye, duck and lamb. Vegetarian and gluten free options are also on the menu. Ms Emmet said portions were generous and very reasonably priced with discounts for members. “Where else can you get a glass of decent wine for $5?” she said. Booking at night is advisable as Friday and Saturday nights can get busy. The venue is also available for weddings and engagements, but spaces are limited throughout the year already. Bistro on the Green has a great team of staff and as the kitchen is semi open you get to see

them hard at work. The fantastic girls on the floor are led by Ms Emmet’s mum Janne, and Shauna Lee is the functions and bookings manager. Carolyn Anderson from Hiphipshebang will be continuing her Sunday afternoon music events, which have been a great success and a wonderful entertainment option for the community. Bistro on the Green is open for Mother’s Day for breakfast and lunch. They are open Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for lunch and dinner between 11am and 9.30pm, Saturday for breakfast, lunch and dinner between 8.30am and 9.30pm and Sunday for breakfast and lunch between 8.30am and 3.30pm.

A hypnotising night with Bizarre Gazzard BY TIFFANY PILCHER GET ready to witness the something remarkable when spellbinding hypnotist Bizarre Gazzard brings his amazing show to the Geelong RSL on May 17. You will be dumbfounded by the power of the mind then laugh yourself hoarse at the antics of your friends. You may have seen other stage hypnotists on television, now imagine this combined with a true blue Aussie larrikin and you’ve got the Bizarre Gazzard show. Bizarre Gazzard, whose real name is Rohan Gazzard, is a fully qualified clinical hypnotherapist and has over 10 years of stage experience. On the night, he will also be joined by his other alter ego, the brilliantly funny stand-up comedian and musician, Adam Chicken Palmer. Combining music, costumes, comedy and props, this is a show where the only people having a better time than the audience are the volunteers who are invited on stage to take part in all the action. All volunteers are willing participants and the show is based only on fun, no moral boundaries are ever compromised and no volunteer will ever be humiliated. The volunteers are made to be the stars of the night and are never made to feel uncomfortable at any point during the show. Bizarre Gazzard is performing at the Geelong

RSL, 50 Barwon Heads Road, Belmont, on Saturday May 17. Tickets are $50 for a meal and the show or $30 for the show only, Geelong RSL members are eligible for a $5 discount. For tickets and more information, call 5241 1766.

Melbourne’s Drunk Mums are coming to play their trademark frenzied live show in Geelong this weekend.

Drunk Mums to party at the Barwon Club BY TIFFANY PILCHER

Bizarre Gazzard will spellbind audiences at his Geelong RSL show on May 17.

WITH a reputation for the unruly and a name like Drunk Mums, this erratic punk rock band’s Geelong show this weekend could shape up to be one to remember. Living up to the provocative nature their name suggests, the band has a habit of being thrown out of venues for their overly enthusiastic behaviour and their last album cover got them kicked off iTunes. The Cairns-turned-Melbourne five-piece recently gained a management deal with Melbourne’s Cherry Bar owner James Young, and are one of Victoria’s most promising emerging punk acts. They’re hitting the road to celebrate the release

of their new single “Plastic”, and bassist and vocalist Adam Ritchie said the song, as well as their forthcoming album, marks a slight change in sound for the band. “We were listening to a lot of 70s stuff when we were writing it and it mellowed us out a bit. “It’s a lot more chilled than our last album. “It’s still a party album but it’s more of a backyard barbecue album, there’s definitely still punk on there, though.” As for their name, Ritchie said it’s a simple nod to their formative gigs. “It started out as The Danes but it changed after a while because we found we were playing to a lot of drunk mums in Cairns.” Drunk Mums are playing at the Barwon Club in Geelong on Saturday May 10.

Festival calling on talented filmmakers

IT’S time to roll out the red carpet and shine a spotlight on fine art films with the third annual Bellarine Lighthouse Films Winter Program. From July 25 to 27, five films will play over three days in the historic Queenscliff Town Hall, along with special guests and plenty of opportunities to socialise and talk films with a glass of wine and gourmet food offerings. Bellarine Lighthouse Films is a not-forprofit community organisation showcasing fine art films not readily available in regional cinemas. The event is run by a passionate group of volunteer cinefiles working alongside Twilight Cinemas to curate an exceptional selection of movie titles from around the globe during the last weekend in July. Program details will be released in mid June and keep up with all the razzle-dazzle via the website at bellarinelighthousefilms.com.au or follow them on Facebook. MEANWHILE, the Bethany Arthouse Film Festival will show five quality productions between March and September

THE Lorne Film team is calling for entries for its 2014 festival later this year. The four-day celebration of international film for the people who make, watch and love film, is on the lookout for talented filmmakers from around the world who want to enter their feature length film. This year’s festival from November 13 to 16 will build on the success of the inaugural 2013 festival, where more than 1,000 admissions viewed 29 films across five screens and film professionals from across Australia descended on Lorne to create, and interact in a true festival community. Some exciting initiatives are being added to this year’s festival, which include a comprehensive schools program, a screenwriter’s prize and a youth event that

is currently scheduled for the Saturday night of the festival. The Screen Writers Prize will support an Australian screenwriter of exceptional talent who has an advanced screenplay in any genre. This support will come via a cash prize that can be used for late stage development of an Australian feature film to help a writer advance the project closer to production. Also, the team is pleased to introduce three new industry and event specialists, including Kate Whitbread, Nelson Khoury and Jen Doherty, who will ensure that Lorne Film continues to develop into a world class event this year and into the future. For more information about the festival, film entries and the screenwriter’s prize visit lornefilm.com.au.

farm food AT HOME with Tony Le Deux

A cause for celebration LAST week we celebrated our daughter’s 19th birthday. We had lunch at Donovan’s on the boulevard in St Kilda. It was a perfect autumn day. The water sparkled, the sun shone and we had a wonderful time together. The service was exemplary and, as my wife said, it was like sitting in someone’s nice lounge room. The menu is almost unchanged with my favourite, the Bombe Alaska, still a hit. What I enjoyed most was the comfort factor and the understanding it was a family occasion. Some restaurants now seem to worship the chef. As I have mentioned before in this column, the reason the Flower Drum is so successful is they understand service. They ensure their customers have an experience to remember and not one dictated to them by the chef of the moment. The food must be good, but the most important ingredient for a memorable lunch or dinner is the people and the conversation. Wine helps and good service allows the meal to flow without being the sole focus. Our lunch was perfect.

Brews, views and fine fare for Good Beer Week BY TIFFANY PILCHER GOOD Beer Week is back again and The Vue Grand is celebrating by hosting an afternoon with delicious beer-matched dishes on May 25. Good Beer Week is an independent, not-for-profit festival celebrating Victoria’s craft beer offerings over nine jam-packed days. The Vue Grand’s event, Brews with a Vue, will take place on their Rooftop Bar, showcasing local craft beers from Bellarine Brewing Co. and Two Wives Brew Co. Head chef, avid home brewer and beer geek Jesse Hughes has designed the menu around beer food, or “hop inspired” dishes that will go hand in hand with the beers tasted. Having already trialled various foods such as hopsmoked bacon, and the Vue Street Bar’s famous “hop dogs”, the menu promises to be something a little bit quirky, and most certainly delicious. The menu will highlight local Bellarine produce, but also enhance, emphasise and complement the characteristics of the beers that will be on tasting. The afternoon also provides an opportunity to meet the brewers and find out what really goes into making these beers and where the inspiration comes from.

Brews with a Vue will be held at the Vue Grand on Sunday May 25 at 12.30pm. Tickets are $55 per person and include beer and food. The Blues Train is also on board with Good Beer Week and will present Blues and Brews on Saturday May 24 with the Brian Fraser Duo, Luke Watt, Collard Greens and Gravy and Louis King and the Liars Club. Also in the region, Australian Beer Ambassadors (ABA), the guys behind Great Australian Beer Festival, will present Sip and Savour at The Studio in Geelong on May 17 at 7pm. Sip and Savour is a standing degustation featuring more of Vue Grand chef Jesse Hughes’ exceptional work paired with some of Australia’s best craft beer and live music by Spyndrift. ABA director Kieran Blood said the evening will have a bit of everything from cabaret and comedy to vaudevillian live performances. “We’ve asked the best chef in Victoria to match six courses with six of Australia’s best brews including Feral’s Hop Hog, Stone & Wood, Killer Sprocket, Brewcult together with local favourites Prickly Moses and Forrest Brewery’s Silvertop”. For more information and to purchase tickets to Good Beer Week events, visit goodbeerweek.com.au or thebluestrain.com.au.

One of my daughters ordered pasta with slow braised veal osso buco and pork bolognaise. It was rich and delicious and reminded me we are now well and truly into slow cooking season (not that it should ever end). At Torquay Farm Foods this winter, we will be stocking lamb shanks and shoulders, beautiful braising beef, veal osso buco and pork shoulder. All ideal for slow cooking. The following recipe is from Ross O’Meara who appears on The Gourmet Farmer with Mathew Evans. It requires the pork to be brined but I have cooked the dish successfully without this process.

Slow-cooked pork shoulder INGREDIENTS 150 ml molasses 3 litres water 100 g sea salt 2 kg pork shoulder, skin removed, cut into 4 pieces 2 tbsp whole fennel seed 2 tbsp whole cumin seed 2 tbsp whole coriander seed 1 tbsp chilli flakes 1/4 cup onion powder 1/3 cup sweet paprika METHOD Combine the molasses, water and salt in a non-reactive (plastic or stainless steel) container that is big enough to hold the pork and keep it completely submerged. Place the pork in the brine. Seal the container and refrigerate overnight, for about 12 hours. The next day, preheat the oven to 160°C. Grind the fennel, cumin, coriander seeds and chilli flakes in a spice grinder or mortar and pestle. Add the onion powder and paprika and mix thoroughly. Remove the pork from the brine and pat dry with paper towel. Place the pork in the bowl with the spices and rub spices into the pork. Try to make sure the spices cover as much of the pork as possible. If you use plastic gloves, you can really get a good rub going on. If you still have some spots without rub, just sprinkle it on once it is in the cooking pan. Place the pork in a 25 cm by 35 cm by 8 cm heavy-based pan. If you don’t have a heavy-based pan, use a roasting pan. Roast in oven for 23 hours. You can turn the pork once during the middle of the cooking. Once the pork is cooked, remove and transfer to a non-reactive container. Using kitchen forks “pull” or shred the pork while it is hot. Leave pork to cool for 10–15 minutes, and then stir. After that, you are ready to get stuck into it. The classic accompaniment is fresh coleslaw.

DO I NEED TO UPDATE? TALKING COMPUTERS WITH BRAD FROM TORQUAY COMPUTERS

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

ARE you constantly being annoyed by little windows that pop up telling you that you have to apply some update or another? It can be difficult to tell which of these pop ups are legitimate and which are going to install dreaded spyware and viruses onto your system. Let’s take a look at a few of the most common ones. Windows Updates – Hopefully you have Windows updates installing automatically when you switch off your computer. If it is set to manual you should always install the updates to protect your computer. As you are probably aware Windows XP has finished support and will receive no more updates thus making it a risky proposition for things like internet banking etc. Java – Java is software installed on your computer to enable you to view and use certain web content. Java updates should always be applied as older

versions have “open doors” to allow malware to creep in. BEWARE – Java will usually try and sneak in some extra adware – take the ticks off any extra products it wants to install, especially any toolbars. Adobe Products – Always install updates for both Adobe Reader and Adobe Flash Player. These will generally pop up by themselves and let you know when it’s time to check. Again beware of any extra software that it might want to install like toolbars etc. Antivirus – These should update automatically but it pays to manually check the virus definition dates every now and then to make sure. A lot of programs will be set to check if there are updates when they are started. These are generally easy to tell that they are legitimate, as you initiated the program that is asking for an update. Any random pop ups I would be extremely wary of, especially if they’re form some program you have never heard of. Use Google to research or consult your friendly computer support technician.

Can play shape our brain? BY BARBARA GRACE FOR many of us, play is a forgotten art best left for children and pets. Somewhere along the way we bought into the guilt that play is a waste of time and that if we’re not being productive by learning a new skill, making money or being “busy” doing whatever it is we do, then the guilt machine kicks in and we get back to the work of being “busy”. Yet researchers like Dr Stuart Brown tell us that play is a catalyst for new ways of thinking. He says play can kick-start innovation by getting us out of our logic brain and into creative ways to solve problems. In the late 90s, a leading aerospace research facility realised it had a problem. Younger graduates hired to replace retiring engineers and scientists

weren’t good at problem solving – even though they came top of their field. The difference between the two generations was marked by each one’s exposure to tinkering at a young age and taking apart clocks, fixing appliances or making derby carts – in other words playing and solving problems with their hands. In two generations, the simple act of play that launched careers in space design and research now seems lost. In another example, Gillian Lynne, choreographer for the musicals Cats and Phantom of the Opera, was labelled “mentally disabled” because she fidgeted and didn’t pay attention at school. Today, in the age of ADHD diagnosis, Gillian Lynne says she would probably have been medicated, not encouraged to explore her love of music and dance and ultimately told to stop “playing”. Yet “play” became her future livelihood, bringing joy to millions. As adults, play can be a way of finding our own core truths. Through it we can harness a creative force that helps expand our world and opportunities.

Healthy Bellarine smiles on kids DENTAL decay is the most prevalent Australian childhood disease. It is often left untreated and results in developmental problems, adverse education and social impacts, pain, disfigurement, hospital admission and lowered quality of life with the greatest burden and higher decay rates faced by children in rural Australia. Bellarine Community Health Dental clinic has invited all schools and preschools around the Bellarine Peninsula to participate in their School Dental Screening Program.

Bellarine Community Health will be sending qualified dental staff to the schools/preschools to examine children’s teeth. There is no cost to the school or student for this examination or treatment. Worldwide, about 90 per cent of people suffer from oral disease in their lifetime with only 60 per cent having access to oral healthcare. In Australia, groups with lower socio-economic status, including but not limited to some Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, people living in rural areas, people with

disabilities, older people, and some immigrants and refugees see higher levels of oral disease than other groups. At Bellarine Community Health, the team is working to improve this poor oral health status and provide quality dental treatment and education to the community. They love to put smiles on the faces of their patients and when they can help make them healthy smiles, it’s all the more special. For more information about the Dental Screenings, email fiona.provan@bch.org.au.

Restaurant teams up with exercise scientist for health LOCAL exercise scientist and personal trainer Brianna Bateup is teaming up with author Julie Rennie to educate Surf Coast locals on the importance of a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Bateup, an experienced personal trainer and qualified exercise scientist, sees a need for more education on healthy lifestyle rather than dieting. “Often I meet people, in particular young mothers, who spend the majority of their time

nurturing their family, and sometimes forget to nurture themselves,” she said. “We are living in a generation where the fitness industry is booming but so many people are failing to maintain a healthy weight.” Bateup has researched ways to motivate people to live with healthy practices and is now working alongside best-selling author Julie Rennie (The Metabolic Clock and The Metabolic Clock Cookbook) to encourage sustainable weight loss

by maintaining a healthy mindset as well as a healthy body. The duo will be offering a free talk for Surf Coast locals to discuss ditching the diets, energising the mind and body and living a more positive life. The talk is on Wednesday May 14, 6.30-8.30pm at Bomboras (108 Surf Coast Hwy, Torquay). To book call or text Brianna Bateup on 0405 946 966.

might require with their doctor or immunisation provider. An online quiz on the Department of Health’s consumer health website, the Better Health Channel, leads users through a series of questions to determine which vaccinations, if any, they should discuss with their doctor or immunisation provider. “In Victoria the vast majority of parents are vigilant in ensuring their young children are fully immunised but these numbers drop for secondary school immunisations,” Dr Ackland said. “There are also immunisations recommended and provided free for people from 50 years old.” He cited travel and smoking as lifestyle

IMMUNISATION Week ended over a week ago, but Victorians have been urged to assess their immunisation needs as well as the needs of those they care for. Victoria’s Deputy Chief Health Officer, Dr Michael Ackland, said immunisations were required through life, not just in childhood. “Health, age, lifestyle and occupation, sometimes referred to by the acronym of HALO, are the four key factors that determine an individual’s immunisation needs.” Those four factors inform two new resources designed to assist Victorians to discuss what immunisations they

factors that put people at greater risk of exposure to vaccine-preventable diseases. “Some jobs may also expose you to a greater risk – for example, working in a hospital or a day care centre. And common health conditions like asthma and diabetes can also make people more vulnerable to some vaccine-preventable diseases. “If any of these factors ring a bell with you, you may benefit from additional or more frequent immunisations and should take the time to talk to your doctor or immunisation provider about it.” To find out what immunisations you should discuss with your doctor or immunisation provider, take the online Better Health Channel quiz at betterhealth.vic.gov.au/immunisation.

Stretching â&#x20AC;&#x201C; how and why, dynamic versus static DR ERIN COFFEY WE ALL know stretching is beneficial for us â&#x20AC;&#x201C; before a game, before a run, before training, but have you wondered what kind of stretching you should be doing? Dynamic stretching should be activity or sport specific, and requires the use of the muscles that will be recruited during the activity. For example, AFL players swing their legs, mimicking the movement of Dr Erin Coffey says kicking a ball. Static stretching involves putting the there are many reasons people see osteopaths. muscle into a stretch position while at rest

and holding for 30-60 seconds, for example, a hamstring stretch. A warm-up pre-training and pre-game, regardless of competition level, is important to increase blood flow, flexibility, get neural pathways firing and increase mental acuity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it prepares you for the activity next at hand. A warm up should use dynamic stretching and only needs to be for five to 10 minutes. Starting gently, gradually increase the intensity, which will result in increased core temperature, heart and breath rate. A study compared dynamic, static

stretching and no stretching prior to activity and the conclusion was that dynamic stretching increased performance without compromise to the reaction time. The cool down is often overlooked but is equally as important as the warm-up, as it aids recovery and assists in preventing injury. During any activity, lactic acid is produced (a chemical by-product that is produced when our muscles are oxygen depleted) and the cool-down helps the body remove it from our muscles. Less lactic acid equals less soreness and stiffness the next day. The cool down should be performed

immediately after the activity and again last five to 10 minutes; this is where static stretching should be included. Gently go through the warm-up routine and then begin some static stretching, incorporating all the muscles that were involved in the activity. Take home messages: you need to stretch but never bounce when stretching; stretch to the point of slight discomfort but never pain; breathe when stretching, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold your breath. Dr Erin Coffey is an Osteopath at The Health Creation Centre in Ocean Grove.

MOORE WEEKLY STARS

MAY 8 - MAY 15 2014 © Joanne Madeline Moore 2014

You function best when others behave in predictable, sensible ways. Which is hardly ever – and certainly not on a full moon! But the more you slip into Capricorn control-freak mode, the more problems you’ll have. When it comes to a rickety relationship with a family member, don’t keep interacting in the same old way. Encouraging words will get you a lot further than criticism.

You’ll feel pulled in many opposing directions, as multiple responsibilities and people compete for your attention. Thursday’s full moon spells the end of spontaneous spending sprees, as you realise you have to make a little money go a very long way. Venus and Uranus hook up in your sign on Friday, which increases your spontaneous side and independent streak.

With Jupiter journeying through your sign until July 16 and Venus/Uranus shaking up your life direction, don’t play it too safe Crabs. It’s time to experiment, explore, enthuse and engage. Be inspired by birthday great Katharine Hepburn “If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.” But expect some ongoing tension between work commitments and relationship responsibilities.

Have you been shopping up a storm when you should be saving or paying off debt? If the answer is “yes”, then there could be some dramas this week involving money and marriage or family finances. With Venus and Uranus linking up in your romance zone on Friday, some lucky Librans will throw caution and common sense to the wind and fall in love at first sight.

Taureans are fabulous flirters and this week, with the full moon stimulating your relationship zone and Venus hooking up with Uranus, it’s time to give those charisma muscles a workout as you radiate your sensual charms far and wide. Want more love and success in your life? Jump right in Bulls… flutter those eyelashes or flex those biceps and you shall receive.

It’s not the ideal week to host a jolly family reunion or bring up sensitive old issues. The full moon falls in your home zone, so be on domestic drama alert and choose your words carefully, as loved ones are liable to make mountains out of molehills. But it is a terrific time to broaden your mental horizons through nifty networking and sharing ideas with likeminded friends.

Thursday’s full moon and Venus/Pluto square magnify your possessive steak and stubborn side, but try not to get into super intense mode. Turn off your motor and cool your heels, otherwise you risk Scorpio burnout not a pretty sight! It’s time to lay down arms and build bridges with loved ones, plus stay tuned for a distinctly deja-vu moment with someone special.

Your unpredictable ways will be very predictable this week. Rebellious? Eccentric? Impulsive in love? Pushing everyone’s buttons for your own personal amusement? A big yes to all the above, as you channel your unique talents and express yourself to the max! For inspiration, look to avant-garde Aquarius role-models like Mozart, James Dean, Bob Marley and Yoko Ono.

You’re never short of lightning flashes of inspiration but you can fall short in the execution department. This week, as action planet Mars trines Mercury your ruler it’s time to finish long-standing projects and tie up loose ends. Friday’s fabulous aspects also help you replace outdated aspirations with dazzling updated dreams. Out with the old, and in with the new!

Villa Virgo is usually a place where efficiency reigns, routine is revered, and surprises are unwelcome. This week courtesy of the full moon and Mercury you’ll find that life’s complicated, relationships are unpredictable, and the rules are constantly changing. So it’s the perfect time to move out of your comfort zone and stretch yourself in challenging new directions.

This week’s complicated stars stir up your Sagittarian sense of humour. Just make sure your gags and one-liners don’t offend others, and that your jokes are ones that everyone can enjoy. Attached Archers – It’s time to patch up partnership problems as you take a deep breath and talk things through. Singles – look for love with someone who is smart, sexy and spontaneous.

With Thursday’s full moon activating your adventure and travel zone, it’s time to channel the intrepid explorer within as you plan a weekend escape, a heavenly holiday or an overseas getaway – somewhere you’ve never been before. Your imagination is firing on all cylinders on Friday, but don’t get carried away with ridiculous ideas that have no basis in reality.

Wayward Seagulls snap up Coutas BY JAMES TAYLOR BARWON Heads has overcome inaccurate kicking to record a come-from-behind victory over Queenscliff in round 5 of the BFL. The Seagulls had 10 scoring shots to three in the third quarter, kicking 2.8 to trail by eight points at the last break, but kept up the attack to finish 10 points in front of the Coutas. Andy Walsgott was best on ground for Barwon Heads. Torquay trailed Portarlington at half-time but had a much better second half, running out 53-point winners at Portarlington Recreation Reserve. Matthew Johnson kicked three goals for the Tigers. Ocean Grove remain undefeated after accounting for Modewarre in a tough battle at home, turning a 16-point three-quarter time deficit into a 32-point victory. Daniel Freeman, Max Rooke and Travis Gavin each kicked three goals for the Grubbers, while Jack Moorfoot slotted four for the Warriors. Fellow undefeated side Geelong Amateur pulled away from Anglesea in the last quarter for a 56-point win and to stay on top of the ladder. Tim Clark kicked three goals in the game at Queens Park. Drysdale racked up a percentage-boosting win over Newcomb, beating the hapless Power by 251 points. Thomas Dewey bagged 11 of his side’s 39

goals, with good help from Paul Davis (six) and Ben Carmichael (five). For full results and fixtures for all grades in the BFL, see page 103 or head to aflbarwon.com.au.

GEELONG Amateur have emerged from a very wet weekend as undefeated ladder leaders, having turned a 7-goal deficit into a 7-goal win over Anglesea at home. The Ammos got off to a very slow start with the Roos goal shooter Justine Weichert causing all kinds of problems for the defenders. But the Ammos eventually found their feet when Kate Schippers moved into goals at half time, shooting at 100 per cent and picking up three votes for the day. Ammos centre Sharon Ford was also instrumental, playing her first full-game after returning from a knee injury. Torquay have made their way back into the top four with a 37-30 win over Portarlington. Amy Vogels was prominent again in goals, putting away 29 and a receiving a best-on court nod. Portarlington now sit in fourth position and will look to move up the ladder when they take on Queenscliff next week. Candice Bull was

strong in a losing side, shooting 23 goals. Barwon Heads have served up another loss for Queenscliff, doubling the Coutas’ score at 50-26. Seagulls goalers Olivia Young and Shae Rowbottom combined well and took out three and two votes respectively. Barwon Heads take on arch rivals Ocean Grove next week in the ‘Battle of the Bridge’. The Grubbers had a narrow 5-goal loss to Modewarre but still sit in fifth position, just above the Warriors. Experienced defender Zoe Tennant was outstanding for Modda with another best-on-court performance. Modda now sit in sixth position and will be working extremely hard over the next few rounds to push back into the top four. Drysdale made short work of Newcomb with a 60-25 goal drubbing. Milli Leahy starred yet again for Drysdale, nailing 24 goals and picking up votes. Drysdale will face a huge test this week when they meet Geelong Amateur but a home crowd will be on their side.

SURFBOARDS

MANY of my readers will be well aware of the plight for the Anglesea River over the years, and the toll a number of fish kills have taken on one of the best fishing waterways in our region and one of the premium bream breeding estuaries in Victoria. The authorities claim these events are all due to acidic soils but offer no explanation as to why it is happening so frequently now. It is important that we come to understand the impact these events can have on our environment and on our community, and why acidic soils are having such a major impact on the health of our river systems. This issue needs to be addressed in terms we can all understand, and to help facilitate this the LAWROC Landcare group is holding a presentation by Professor Richard Bush and associate Phil Hirst, on May 14 at the COPAC Civic Hall in Colac between 7.30-8pm. Professor Bush is a founding member and director of the Southern Cross University’s Geosciences Faculty. He is a professor and director of Higher Degree Research Training and is well qualified to talk about inland acid sulphate soils. His research interests are soil science and soil water interactions in agricultural and urban landscapes. He has studied what can happen when one of the Otway Ranges potential acid sulphate soil sites dries out and then catches fire. Come along and listen to Professor Bush present the findings on the Big Swamp, Yeodene. His findings have implications for the whole Otways in regards to groundwater extraction, climate

change, drought and the groundwaterdependent ecosystems found throughout the Otway Ranges. One impact with serious outcomes is the creation of acid sulphate soil sites. They can ruin farmland, swamps, rivers and streams through elevated acid load, production of numerous toxins, heavy metals and noxious gases. Add fire to the mix and the problems are multiplied. The Otway Ranges and coastline have numerous potential acid sulphate soil sites. New data from the Barwon River catchment in the Otway Ranges will be presented for the first time by Professor Bush and his team. The presentation will show drainage and wildfire can trigger severe acid sulphate degradation. There are immense challenges facing catchment management, water extraction and the conservation of landscapes. This will be demonstrated, including practical ideas on remediation and implications of the damage already done. I am sure the findings of this work will be immensely interesting to our regional communities and natural resource managers.

Juniors lead the way for Surf Coast FC THE weekend saw a number of impressive wins and unfortunate losses for the Surf Coast FC; however it was the future stars of tomorrow recording wellearned victories for the club. Surf Coast’s Under 13 Boys team led the way with an outstanding 13-0 win over the Bellarine Sharks. A fantastic team effort saw nine different goal scorers among the team, with the ball constantly being moved forward with attacking play. The team has trained hard for the last eight weeks and the results are showing. Jack Wyeth was best on ground, scoring three of the teams’ 13 goals. The Under 14 Girls (Blue) Surf Coast team came away with a fantastic 6-2 win over Bell Park. The girls scored early and were 3-0 up in no time. Bell Park fought back and scored a goal just before half-time, but after some stern words from the coach, the girls hit the second half playing much better. Claudia Casha was in fine form on the right side of attack scoring a hat-trick – a second great performance in a row for the young striker. Sacchi Rose-Grigg scored two goals from the midfield and played extremely well. Leilani Feher scored one in an unfamiliar role upfront. Eliza

McGowan was tremendous in her support role of the forwards, feeding the strikers and creating goalscoring opportunities. This development team is going really well and is improving more and more with every game. In other games, Surf Coast’s Senior Women’s State League team faced a youthful Clifton Hill soccer club away in Melbourne with a 4-0 win. The women played hard from the get go, with Cassidy John scoring first with a great chip courtesy of a perfectly positioned Bec McGlinchey corner. In the second half, Ruby Campbell and Cassidy both scored, rewarding the positive attacking teamwork displayed by the defense and midfield. In another impressive performance, defender Aimee Wescombe moved forward and finished the game with a goal. The club’s Senior Men’s State League team drew with Point Cook 2-2. The team had more than enough of the football and chances to bring the points back to Torquay, but it was not to be this round. Melbourne City this week at home is a chance to bounce back. And lastly, the Under 12 Boys team finished with

a loss to Surfside 1-3. Cody Major was the team’s only goal scorer with a cracking shot inside the box. This weekend sees two fantastic home games

at Banyul-Warri Fields – the Senior Men take on Melbourne City on Saturday at 3pm, with the Senior Women hosting Melbourne Uni on Sunday at 3pm.

ANGLESEA GOLF CLUB IT WAS back to pennant activities this week with two Sundays and a Friday to report. The Sunday ladies are having a good run toward the end of their season. They had a 3/2 win against Curlewis at Barwon Heads on Anzac weekend and the same result against Portarlington/Barwon Valley last Sunday. They are sitting fourth on the ladder with a few more rounds to go. Meanwhile, the Friday ladies are having some success. The Division 2 team is on top of their ladder after another win, 4/1 against Queen’s Park at Barwon Heads. Division 3 are close to the bottom losing again this week to Barwon Valley at 13th Beach 2/3 and Division 4 are climbing up their competition with a 3/2 win against Colac (2) at Portarlington. In the Men’s pennant, our Division 1 team had a 5/2 win over Queens Park at Anglesea over the Anzac weekend and suffered at 6/1 loss to 13th Beach last weekend. The Division 2 team lost to the Sands 1.5/5.5 at Barwon Valley and lost to Lonsdale 1/6 at Lonsdale over the same weekends. Neither team will be featuring in the finals.

WITH MARGOT SMITH

Barry Mason, Colin Watson, Jim James and Christian Robertson. Thursday was medal day for the ladies and thankfully a dry day for them. Division 1 winner Janet Coombes and Division 2 winner Jo Murray both scored a nett 75 and will now play off in the June medal field. The winner in Division 3 was Linda Aimers with nett 77. Janet also had the best gross score of 92 and Anne Mangan won the putting competition with 29. N.T.P’S winners were Jo Murray, Judy Talbot, Lorraine Elliot and Lyn Thompson.

The men played a 4BBB stroke round on Wednesday and it was a tight finish with the top three teams all scoring nett 64. Winners of the count back were Peter Hester and Jim James, and Norm Stewart and Victor Lee and Uwe Morzinek and Mike Grossman made up the minor placings. But it was the seniors who had the best score with Alan Parton and Eddie Brenner scoring a nett 62. NTP winners were

Saturday was the men’s turn for the medal and the conditions were not ideal. David Calvert won the medal with 39 points in C Grade. Other winners were, Deg Hume in the ladies with 31 points, David Haintz in A Grade with 37 points and Michael Hume in B Grade with 38 points. NTP winners were Don Parry, Colin Foster, Peter Jones and Les Cooper. Sunday was the Challenge Charity Day and we had a very big field playing in quite challenging conditions again. Winners on a count back with 46 points were Sue and Tony French, and Robyn and David Adamson were runners-up. NTP winners were Barry Coleman, Sue Bowler, Mark Thomas, Kylie Thomas on two, Ross Duff, Maryanne Frauenfelder, and Peter Atherden. Longest drives to DJ Wylie, Judy Talbot, David Adamson and Sue French. Read next week and find out how much was raised. Enjoy your golf and stay dry.

LET us start with a story from the course this week. Most members will be aware of David Dickson’s driving misfortunes. Renowned for bogging his cart and taking out metal stakes and ropes, he now has handicapped himself by running over his (now in pieces) driver; what an expensive day! On Tuesday, 30 ladies planned to play 18 holes of golf and 30 finished 9 holes very wet and cold. Although it was only a 9 hole competition, we still had winners. No need for scores: if you won, you deserved to. Val Robertson had the red tee and Joan Sparkes the Resort. NTPs to Joan Thomson and Gail Rooney. Heather Wemyss- Smith hit the jackpot. A hot coffee and a chat was the agenda for the rest of the day. On Wednesday, of course the weather was much better, and another strong field headed out for the Stableford competition. The A Grade winner this week was Rod Papworth with 41 points. B Grade went to Jeff Welsh scoring 43 points. C Grade was won by Rob Templeton with 42 points and D Grade winner Bruce Ditchburn scored 39 points. Roy Ball had a fantastic score of 41 points to win the Resort. NTPs to Matt Carboon, Tim Sinnott, Garry Fletcher and Ian A. Sweet. Trevor Bell was all over the jackpot pin taking out the huge prize pool. On Friday, Paul Walters took out first place for the men with 39 points and to top off his good round he also hit the jackpot hole. Valma Davis won the ladies

with 34 points. NTPs to Bob Hayles, Bruce Dyer and Valma Davis. The first round of the club championships kicked off on Saturday with 159 entrants. Most played in the morning as the sun was shining – unfortunately, we cannot say the same for the afternoon as it bucketed down leaving the clubhouse full of very wet golfers for the second time this week. All in all, though, most players did finish and keep an eye on the website for all the championship leaderboards. In the daily competition, Andrew Groom won A Grade with 64. Trevor Bell scored well to win B Grade with 62. C Grade was taken out by David Clark with 66. Medal and D Grade winner went to Mark Rosewall carding 61. Bob Gough with another strong hold on the Resort scored 40 points to win. Sue Booth took out the ladies’ medal with 78: a great effort in the conditions and she will wear her medal proudly. NTPs to Richard Pekin, Gary Watson, Ward Szymczak, Bob Gough, Ronnie Beacom and Wanda Paterson. Tim Sinnott hit the jackpot. On Sunday, the husband and wife duo of John and Kaylene Potter took out the wins in the men’s and ladies competition - John with 41 points and Kaylene with 43 points, so of course bragging rights go to Kaylene with the better score. NTPs to Uli Schmetzer and Wayne Kerby. Wayne Kerby hit the jackpot.

WEDNESDAY: MEN’S STABLEFORD

SUNDAY: STABLEFORD MEDLEY

It was a tough day for scoring, as reflected by the high DSR, but Lawrence Gudykunst from Barwon Valley seemed to cope the best, scoring 37 points. Runner-up in a count back was Brian O’Shae who scored 36. NTP went to Frank Pellizzeri on the 7th and Brian Harley on the 17th.

Under frightful conditions, few were willing to brave the 18 holes. Alan Thiele was one of the few who persevered, and was rewarded by winning with 29 points.

THURSDAY: LADIES’ STROKE MEDAL It was a hotly contested affair, and it came down to a count back. The winner with nett 76 edged out Jan Swain. NTP went to Judi Bullock on the 7th.

COMING UP Thursday, May 8 – Stableford Friday, May 9 – SWDLGA Div 6 Pennant Saturday, May 10 – Stableford: Ladies’ Challenge Sunday, May 11 – Par

A TIMELY reminder to all categories of membership that our popular Wednesday night members draw is getting bigger by the week, with it jackpotting $200 each week. This week it is up to $2,800, so by the time you read this it will have either hit the $3,000 mark, or we will have a winner. If you get along for dinner, book a table in advance, as the numbers seem to get bigger as the prize money escalates. Strange, that!

APRIL 29: MEN’S STABLEFORD

It was a rough one for the ladies as the conditions were less than ideal. In the end Marianne Bridgart turned in a dominant 10 point victory to get the chocolates, scoring 36 points. Runner-up was Susan Barrett. NTP went to Linda Turner on the 17th.

SATURDAY: MEN’S STROKE MEDAL It was a good day to take advantage of the end of the ‘wet weather gear sale’ as it was indeed a wet one. The young gun Michael Proposch was not affected by this as he was able to win in a count back over Rod Hyett, with each player scoring Nett 71. NTP went to Frank Kevric on the 5th, Jim Demetrious on the 7th, Geoff Proposch on the 13th and Tim Jarman on the sponsored NTP 17th.

with her 39 pts to win Trophy of the Day and A Grade from Beth Peterson on 32.

Golf Memberships: 5264 3303 Email: sands@peppers.com.au Web: www.thesandstorquay.com

WITH ROB CASEY

160 men and 27 ladies were able to get through their game before the rain set in, so we were pretty lucky. Several men scored nett 68s but the winner was Ray Hazell with a count back victory over Wayne Dixon in both the Monthly Medal, and C Grade. Gary Edwards 68 got him the B Grade win by a shot over Gary Hayward, and Rodney Allen’s 68 gave him D Grade by a shot from John Crossett. A Grade went to Scott Hopgood on a count back over Robin Burns, both with 70s. NTPs: Mark Tomlinson, Lloyd James and Nathan Mickelsons, ProPin: Craig Finnemore. The ladies’ event went to Marion Keskinen with a 73 over Kay Williams and Jenny Edmanson on 74, NTPs: Jenny on the 17th and Louise Blomley on the 5th, Marg Holt got the ProPin and Sandy Issell won the putting.

Wet weather played a big part in our results, with only 60 entries, and 37 players actually completing the course – they all deserve a medal. Despite the conditions, Vic Bosworth scored 43 points to win the trophy of the Day and C Grade (and a NTP on the 5th) from Ian Flanders with 36. Kane McKenzie won A Grade with 36 points from Peter Nash on 34, while in B Grade Wayne Hood won with 38 points from John Bowman, whose 37 included a NTP on the 17th. John Cormack scored 35 to win D Grade from Lorne Chandler on 34. Matt Salter had an NTP on the 2nd.
