SAVED?

Borough of Queenscliffe rescinds interim floodplain policy following community backlash BY ALISON MARTIN POINT Lonsdale’s Save 600 group, established to oppose an interim floodplain policy, has claimed a significant victory. In response to the community outrage over the policy, which had the potential to halt development on private property and impact on land values in affected areas, the Borough of Queenscliffe has rescinded two key points. In a statement, council said: • Council continues to refer all planning permit applications in the areas vulnerable to sea level rise to the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority, advises the applicants of the CCMA advice, and adopts the CCMA advice, including refusal of applications where the CCMA does not support the development • That council adopts the CCMA’s Interim Local Floodplain Development Plan until further advice or direction regarding land use planning and development controls is received from the state government. However, the borough will “continue to seek advice from the CCMA and other relevant agencies when considering each planning permit application in vulnerable areas”. Save 600 spokesperson, Peter Russell, said the rescinding of the interim changes was the basis of the community campaign but the issues still needed to addressed. “The borough has put it back to the property owners and they now have charge of their property and their rights,” he said. “Now it goes back to state government and to a lesser extent, the borough. There has to be a resolution from higher authorities because it

doesn’t only affect the borough, it affects all coastal communities.” Russell said Save 600 representatives would have a meeting with Planning Minister, Justin Madden, later this month to raise their concerns and make him aware of the impact on property owners and the community of policy changes. Borough mayor, Bob Merriman, said council was “acutely aware of community concerns over this issue and keen to ensure the community not only gets all the facts, but importantly, also has input into all levels of response to sea level rise caused by climate change”. He said the borough was encouraging community submissions regarding the interim plan before February 15. The borough is also calling for nominations to establish a reference group “to focus community feedback to council and assist finalising the borough’s feedback to the CCMA, Minister for Planning, Justin Madden, and other appropriate ministers”. “We have convened a community reference group to identify key issues impacting our community, which we can feed into the state government’s Future Coasts Programme and the Planning Minister’s Climate Change Advisory Committee,” Merriman said. “We must make governments at both the state and federal levels aware of the risks that residents and council are now facing.” Merriman also said “all aspects” would be considered when feedback and submissions from local residents, information from regional and state authorities and legal advice had been received.

International rock stardom hit the Bellarine on Saturday when Rob Thomas headlined A Day on the Green at Spray Farm. Thomas was the star attraction at the concert – which included Vanessa Amorosi, Thirsty Merc and Rushcutter. Thousands travelled from around the state to witness the biggest acts the Bellarine has seen in a number of years. For more ERIK HOLT photos see Pages 3 and 13.

coast community environment

MAYOR’S COLUMN COUNCIL is very proud of the collaborative work between community groups, council and other levels of government. This coming weekend council will conduct a workshop/information session for interested community members in the Town Hall at 9.30am about the first replating season of our Tree Management, Removal and Replacement Strategy. Council has already sourced some of the more difficult to acquire species, including conifers and figs that will be the basis of this first replanting. As indicated in the Council Plan – we will initiate actions related to climate change; we like every other coastal council are facing huge challenges in responding to predicted sea level rise and we will continue to work with higher levels of government and advocate our community’s concerns. We are in the process of forming our community reference group, which will assist council in framing the key issues and concerns of our community and inform our input into the Future Coasts Programme and the Planning Ministers Coastal Climate Change Advisory Committee and importantly, council’s direct contact with Planning Minister Madden. The challenges associated with sea level rise will be a major focus of council for many years to come. A strong volunteering culture is the backbone of our community and council will continue to supporting volunteer involvement in local community activities ranging from sport, community services, the environment, surf life saving, etc.

Australia Day awards

This spirit of volunteering is reflected in the Australia Day Community Awards.

Our Citizen of the Year, David (John) Anwyl has been an active member of the Queenscliff Bowling, Tennis and Croquet club for the past 10 years, holding many positions. On top of all of this, John finds time to play bowls himself at pennant level, help with the upkeep and maintenance of the greens and surrounds, has been very active in the periods of drought in co-orientating watering schedules, coordinates numerous working bees to ensure vital maintenance around the grounds, and encourages other members to be involved on the numerous committees he is involved with. Our Junior Citizen of the Year, Lisa Hanley, is not only a talented performer who started performing in primary school with her mother at various community events and at school. Lisa has also given tirelessly of her time performing for various community groups such as the senior citizens while studying voice at The Conservatorium of Music at Melbourne University. Our Community event of the Year was the Queenscliffe Lighthouse Theatre Group production of Sound of Music. The production was an outstanding success, and received standing ovations every night. The Queenscliffe Lighthouse Theatre Group is made up of local people with a passion for theatre. Not only are they active in this group, they are also active in a number of other volunteer groups within the Borough. Our Community service of the Year award went to the Queenscliff Playground Community Working Group , which was established in April 2007, and have been the driving force behind developing the concept, design and location for the soon to be completed Queenscliff Playspace in Princess Park, Queenscliff. They have also been instrumental in designing

the space, working through a number of designs to a final concept specifically developed for the Princess Park site. The Borough of Queenscliffe is also very proud of our Australia Day Award recipients, Colonel Bruce McEwan Murray AM and Mrs Joyce Allison Stewart OAM. Colonel Murray received his award for exceptional service to the Australian Army in the fields of career management, personnel and training, particularly as the Commanding Officer of the School of Military Engineering and as the Commanding Officer of the Soldier Career Management Agency at Fort Queenscliff. Mrs Stewart received her award for service to the community of Queenscliff through the promotion of local history and heritage. They are all great contributors to our community and truly worthy recipients.

Show and shine

Many community members and service clubs were also involved in the Geelong Street Rodders’ ‘Show and Shine’ event held in Queenscliff over the weekend. This is becoming a major drawcard for the Borough at a traditionally quieter time of the year, attracting more than 8,000 people to enjoy the great weather, classic location and a chance to have a close up look at a unique collection of more than 800 cars from Geelong and other areas. More than 400 entrants spent the weekend in Queenscliff especially enjoying the ‘Rod Cruise’ down Hesse Street on Saturday night. Public entry was by a gold coin donation, which raised more than $12,000 for local charities. Bob Merriman Mayor, Borough of Queenscliffe

Targeting one million trees BY ALISON MARTIN A LOCAL sustainability group is determined to see one million new trees cultivated and planted on the Bellarine. The Bellarine Futures Alliance is in discussions with a major horticultural corporation to establish a nursery to grow appropriate native stock on the Bellarine. BFA spokesperson Tom O’Connor said he expected the “1 million trees� project would have wide community support because of the many benefits it would provide. “I have been in talks with suppliers to set up a 10 acre farm on the Bellarine, which would provide employment and a sustainable industry for the community,� O’Connor said. “We would then work with Greening Australia, Landcare groups and community representatives to develop the 1 million trees concept.� O’Connor said he would encourage schools and community groups to be part of the planting and early care of the trees,

including as many people as possible in the project. “The trees will recreate an important wildlife corridor along the Bellarine Rail Trail, and across the region,� he said. “It’s one of several major programmes BFA will be pushing this year, along with renewable energy public lighting and the promotion of sustainability across the region.� O’Connor said any new public lighting installed on the Bellarine from this year onwards needed to be a combination of wind and solar powered. “Using latest technology thin film cylinders, solar lighting is ideal for commercial, industrial and domestic purposes and is necessary for public lighting if we are going to achieve a ‘clean, green Bellarine’,� he said. “The combination of wind and solar, involves no overhead or underground wiring and next to nothing to maintain – but with a high level performance.� Share your views on the public solar lighting initiative or the 1 million trees project by emailing editor@bellarinetimes.com.au

Queenscliff pier facelift begins THE $1.5million reconstruction of Queenscliff’s iconic pier has started. Member for Bellarine, Lisa Neville (pictured), was armed with crowbar and safety gear to help launch the project, which she explained would retain the pier’s historical design. She said the pier and waiting shed were an important reminder of the bay steamer days and represented a significant part of Queenscliff’s history. “The reconstruction has been the

subject of much consultation with Heritage Victoria, who has given approval for the works, and the Borough of Queenscliff,” she said. “These works will ensure the popular facility will continue to be enjoyed well into the future. “It will be there to be enjoyed by both locals and the many visitors who come to Queenscliff to enjoy its impressive historic buildings, vibrant cafes and restaurants, wonderful cultural life and beautiful natural landscape in this unique seaside setting.” Neville said the pier would be constructed in two stages, with the first involving the pier’s inner approach rebuilt to the waiting shed. The second stage will involve the reconstruction of the pier’s outer end. “These works have been scheduled to ensure the pier remained open during the peak summer holiday period,” Neville said. “Queenscliff Pier is one of the venues for the Australian Seafood Show held at Easter, and works will be temporarily suspended to ensure the pier will be available for this important event that attracts many thousands of people.” The project will be overseen by Parks Victoria, with specialist maritime construction company Elstone Diving Services, undertaking the reconstruction works.

Vue Grand chef is Australia’s best QUEENSCLIFF’S Vue Grand executive chef, Mark Pilgram, has been named Australia’s chef of the year at this year’s International Copper Skillet Competition. Pilgrim answered the call to compete in the International Association of Conference Centres competition for IACC ‘Chef of the Year’ which recongnises the best chef from each country among its members. The winners from each country will then battle it out at a cook-off for the international title. The competition to select the best Australian Chef was held at the Deakin Management Centre between four chefs, representing Bellinzona Grange

Country Retreat, The Grange at Cleveland Winery, The Stables Conference Centre and the Vue Grand. Pilgrim said each chef was given a mystery market basket of fresh produce, grains and three protein ingredients such as meat, fish, or poultry. “We were given 15 minutes to review our items and then plan the dish, after which we had a 30-minute ‘cook-off’ time allotment,” he said. “My dish which took out the award was a herb crusted lamb loin on steamed leeks with asparagus and barramundi ceviche.” Pilgrim will now head to the US for the world final.

INDENTED Head residents could receive their mail from a postie if more than 50 per cent support a street delivery service. However, concerns of overflowing letterboxes and other issues are already being raised by community members. Australia Post has delivered polling forms to eligible residents’ homes asking if they would like a street mail delivery service or if they would prefer to maintain their existing arrangement, collecting their mail over the counter at the local post office and shop or holding a reduced rate post office box. Indented Head Community Association secretary and resident, Ingrid Novosel, said 70 to 80 per cent of homes were holiday residences and said “with letters, comes junk mail�. Novosel said from a Neighbourhood Watch point of view, full letterboxes indicated home owners were absent which makes their homes more vulnerable. “All property owners would be required to get letter boxes. Many residents who have been here for a while like collecting their mail when they get their newspaper from the shop,� she said. “I can see both viewpoints. Some of the newer residents probably have less time to be collecting their

Ingrid Novosel wants Indented Head residents to understand implications of a street delivery service before voting.

mail and want it delivered.� Australia Post spokesperson, Melanie Ward, said mail delivery arrangements varied from place to place, depending on the size and needs of each community. “But we recognise the current arrangements for Indented Head may no longer be as suitable as they once were and are happy to review

them,� she said. “It’s important that a major change to mail delivery arrangements like the street delivery service proposed in this case, is endorsed by a clear majority of the community, which is why we use the polling process. “More than 50 per cent of eligible residents must vote in favour of a change before it can be

implemented. This is so that a small minority of residents cannot bring about a change which has impacts for all residents.� Residents have until Friday, February 19 to return their polling forms. Residents who require more information can contact Australia Post’s Ocean Grove Delivery Centre on 5255 3244.

SWAN Bay boat ramp has been reopened following the completion of works in January. Parks Victoria chief ranger for Port Philip and Western Port, Graeme Davis, said the gravel boat ramp has been replaced with a formed, 15-metre concrete structure. The new boat ramp has also been realigned towards the jetty to access slightly deeper water than could be reached from the previous alignment. Davis said the upgrade to the ramp was aimed at improving safety for users and would continue to provide launching capacity for small boats under similar tidal conditions as currently existed. He reinforced that larger vessels will need to continue to use boat launching facilities at Queenscliff or St Leonards, as they have always done. “The new ramp is not designed for launching large boats as the shallow grade of the seabed and foreshore makes it unsuitable,� Davis said. He said there could be a further, short term closure of the ramp to lay a section of concrete matting to protect the sea bed against scouring. “We appreciate the patience of boat ramp users while we complete these works which will improve the safety of the ramp� Davis said. The works were substantially funded by an $84,029 grant from the Victorian Government’s boating safety and facilities programme managed by Marine Safety Victoria.

THE HORRIFIC news images of the devastation in Haiti have inspired the people of Ocean Grove to hold a concert this Saturday. Local musicians will be gathering at the Ocean Grove Uniting Church from 12pm to 6pm to play the Ocean Grove for Haiti fundraising concert. Local acts playing will include Howlin’ Wind, Steve McEwan and The Yes Men, Paul and James Carrigg, Judy Strickland, Zoran Bilogravic, Sweet Delores, Nick Lovell, Jill Meehan and Jeremy Bennett. Organiser, John Bowman, from the Piping Hot Chicken Shop in Ocean Grove, said he was looking forward to seeing how rock and roll will go in the Uniting Church, but that it will be a fantastic community event. “When I was first asked to help organise the event I immediately thought of the Blues Brothers mission to reform their band to raise funds to save their old orphanage,” said Bowman. “My email pleading for help was replied by many local musicians offering their services, dismissing my Blues Brothers dream. “I have been put in more of the Bob Geldof super band Bandaid position when in 1984 they recorded Do They Know Its Christmas to aid the Ethiopian famine.” The line up will start with classical musicians at noon followed by country blues and rock and roll later into the day.

Doreen realises her goal BY ALISON MARTIN

Doreen Able has shed 29 kilograms in 12 months and is feeling great.

OCEAN Grove celebrant Doreen Able is an inspiration to her fellow weightwatchers after losing more than 29 kilograms in just 12 months. She said she had passed her goal weight but enjoyed encouraging other members at the Ocean Grove Weightwatchers branch and the social side, so she would continue to attend meetings. “I had always been slim when I was young and then I hit menopause and went on steroids,” she said. “I was described as morbidly obese but I didn’t have the mindset until I made my New Year’s resolution last year to lose weight and I did it.” She has gone from wearing size 22 clothes to a size 12 and has discovered many new shopping options. “I love going shopping now. I can wear more fitted clothes, brighter colours and I don’t have to shop for large sizes anymore,” Able said. She said she walked everyday, spent an hour at the pool once or twice a week but attributed her success to Weightwatchers for teaching her to eat properly. “I actually eat more now than I did and I enjoy what I eat. You can have anything you want but you have to be responsible,” she said. “And the Weightwatchers team is very supportive, and that’s really important.” Ocean Grove Weightwatchers meet at St Peter’s Church Hall, in Draper Street. Weightwatchers meetings are also held at Drysdale but are moving to the Senior Citizens Centre from next Tuesday, February 16.

SES volunteers hit the water as a boat crew person. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is a very comprehensive course, but allows qualified crew to be operational anywhere in Victoria and potentially Australia should an emergency require the State Emergency Service to activate their rescue boats,â&#x20AC;? said Bellarine Unit controller, Patrick Culton, who qualified as a crew

CALL OUTS to road accidents and long days spent on rooftops and strong winds are usually the first things that come to mind when thinking of the State Emergency Service (SES). For the last six months, however, volunteers of the Bellarine and Geelong SES have been on the water, training to gain their qualifications in rescue

person for the rescue boats in 2009 and has been on hand to help the new trainees in 2010. Trainees are able to obtain their Victorian boat licence and learn about various boats and parts, anchors, navigation, trailers, emergency and standard operating procedures, undertaking risk assessments and much more.

The first training session provided plenty of opportunity for practice, as trainees learned to manoeuvre the boats, nose them onto moorings, reverse, tow and solve real life problems like a broken bilge. If you are interested in joining the SES, visit www.ses.vic.gov.au

Leijer flies the Victory flag on the Surf Coast BY SARAH LAWRENCE MELBOURNE Victory’s Adrian Leijer has played soccer at the highest level – yet few people know of the star’s association with the Surf Coast. Leijer has enjoyed a stint in the powerful English Premier League and represented the Qantas Socceroos at the 2008 Olympic Games. Now 23, Leijer grew up in Jan Juc from the age of 14 and attended Belmont High School in Geelong where he joined the Geelong soccer team and represented the Under 15s Victorian Country team. “We originally were in New South Wales,” Leijer said. “When I was young my dad coached my older brother’s team and I begged dad to play when I was about four and I have kept up with it.” His talent saw him move to the Victorian Institute of Sport for two years and then to the Melbourne Knights. In 2007, English Premier League team Fulham made a bid for the then 21-year-old, and he accepted, signing a three-year contract. Leijer returned to Australia last year to play for Melbourne Victory, and while he doesn’t get recognised walking the street yet, he is excited about the growing status of the A-League and soccer in Australia. “After coming back from overseas, I’ve noticed the Hyundai A-League is really growing. The kids actually have an Australian team and want to be like surfcoasttimes.com.au

Archie Thompson,” he said. “The good thing is the growing number of teams, that’s good for the game and it (soccer) can easily be a major sporting code in the country.” Despite a hectic schedule, which includes as many as six days a week of training, Leijer still finds time to return to the Surf Coast. “There is so much to being a professional athlete, we have to do all different kinds of training. A lot goes on behind the scenes,” he said. “I try to get back to Jan Juc every time I have a day off. Usually once a week I come down to see my friends, have dinner with the parents and go for a surf.” Leijer balances his sporting commitments with part-time studies; he is currently doing a double degree in commerce and sports management. With just one round remaining before the A-League finals, Leijer’s Melbourne Victory are well entrenched in the top four, and will be looking to secure top spot with a win against Sydney on Sunday. Apart from the chase for A-League glory, Leijer is also looking forward to spending every spare moment catching the World Cup in South Africa on television in June. “Australia has high expectations for the World Cup, but it won’t be easy, but then again, there are many similarities to the team that was in Germany in 2006.”

School continues to grow TORQUAY P-9 College has welcomed new families from Holland, the United Kingdom and all over Australia, along with 109 enthusiastic preps. College principal Pam Kinsman said families were constantly moving to Torquay and the school was growing to accommodate them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eight new teachers had arrived for the 2010 school year and an Indonesian teacher would also be joining the staff this term,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The start of the school year has been absolutely wonderful. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have small class sizes, and employed extra teachers to do this, so parents and students are very happy.â&#x20AC;? A number of new teachers joined Torquay P-9 College last week, including six graduates. Pictured getting ready for their new students were (back, from left) Madeleine Giuffre, Brad Ross, Darren Findling, Stephen Henderson, Aleese Heean, (front) Zoe Christie and Renae Carmichael.

Enjoying the start of their senior schooling at St Ignatius College were Shay McLean (left) and Samantha Hrabar.

Shire needs to get priorities in order Dear Editor, I was pleased to read the letter from Lorraine Leavold (February 2) relating to over-zealous policing of parking on Australia Day. She alleges that the shire is not using common sense. I am in complete agreement. There was another such day when a huge number of people were in our area; the weekend of January 8-10 when the Nippers Carnival was on Friday and St Luke’s Fete was on Saturday. People had parked on the median strip under trees, leaving room for others to parallel park. It was these latter vehicles which experienced the wrath of the parking officer and incurred fines of around $120. This is no way to endear yourself to visitors or indeed the local populace. A further insult on that weekend was that both the toilet and changing blocks on The Esplanade were in an appalling state. I would have thought health concerns had a higher importance than revenue raising.

Dear Editor, The volunteers who work with the Torquay Food Aid would like to thank all who gave so generously towards the supply of our Christmas Food Hampers. It would be very difficult to name all the various churches and organisations who had some type of collection towards the supply of either Christmas food or gifts for the families involved, but your help is greatly appreciated. We would specially like to thank Ryans IGA and Bakers Delight for their continued weekly support as well as at Christmas time.

Without the support of the Torquay community we would not be able to continually supply, on a weekly basis, food hampers to those in our community who may be experiencing some type of difficulty. Torquay Food Aid is a local charity which helps our local people. Anyone who finds themselves in need, for any reason, is welcome to contact the social worker at Barwon Health, one of the local churches, or the Spring Creek Community House. Any of these will be able to help with having your name placed on a list to receive a food parcel supplied by the community of Torquay. Once again, many thanks to the people of Torquay.

Dear Editor, I recently went to a dinner party at a friend’s place in Torquay where I was verbally attacked by another guest with regards to male team sports and the unhealthy environment that it develops when little or big boys en masse get together as a group. This person was adamant that her six-year-old boy would never ever experience a male dominated team sport as it was a haven for developing sexism towards women. I responded that such values regarding sexism should be taught at home and you send your son to sporting clubs to have them taught the sport. She would not be persuaded and I felt sorry for her young son, who will never experience the positives that group sports can teach a young man. I had a perfect example tonight; my son is eight years old and plays cricket for the U/11 Jan Juc Mako’s cricket team. We played Aireys Inlet U/11 team – an older and more experienced team and we had a loss, however, my young son said to me as I tucked him into bed that night “Aireys Inlet are my absolute favourite

team, they encouraged me and congratulated me after I bowled and when I batted they asked my coach was I a good batter. And as I am only quite new to the sport, they were kind enough to bowl slow balls to me resulting in me making a few runs”. My young son was on top of the world. What a brilliant and impressionable lesson the game had been for him and the rest of his young team. I want to thank and congratulate Aireys Inlet team for displaying such great sportsmanship at such a young age, your coach and your parents should be incredibly proud.

Dear Editor, On Australia Day I was delighted to attend celebrations at Ballarat, Queenscliff and Geelong. The Ballarat celebrations started on the evening of the 25th In the Borough of Queenscliffe residents enjoyed a public function and BBQ breakfast sponsored by the Liberal Party, an initiative of the former Member for Bellarine, Gary Spry, and his wife Robin. The year 2010 marked the event’s 15th anniversary and a full house was in attendance at the picturesque Queenscliff Yacht Club. A most apt Australia Day address was delivered by Liberal candidate for Bellarine, Kurt Reiter, who spoke of the pride associated with being an Australian. Finally, along the waterfront in Geelong it was a privilege to welcome over 40 new Australia citizens at the City of Greater Geelong ceremony. Mayor John Mitchell officiated admirably at the proceedings and spoke of the challenges faced by many new Australians. I would like to congratulate all those who made these Australia Day ceremonies possible. David Koch MLC Member for Western Victoria Region

Be brave and face the shave New Barwon Health CEO THE LEUKAEMIA Foundation is urging the community and individuals to register for the Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Greatest Shave to help raise money for patients and families living with leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma. More than 2,500 Victorians are diagnosed each year while thousands are currently living with these blood cancers. The Leukaemia Foundation needs your help to raise more than $2.5million throughout the state to help fund free support services and research into the causes, treatments and cures of blood cancer. The Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Greatest Shave includes shaving your hair off of if you prefer, colouring it in different shades with coloured hairspray. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just this month we learned that our funding has aided an important discovery that will lead to better treatments for the most common form of childhood leukaemia,â&#x20AC;? said Stephanie Hechenberger, The Leukaemia Foundation general manager, Victoria/Tasmania. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blood cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death in Australia, claiming a life every two hours. The Leukaemia Foundation is committed to improving this statistic and since 2005 has invested over $12million in research.â&#x20AC;? In addition to funding research, money raised will fund free support services such as transport to and from treatment, accommodation close to hospital, education, information and emotional support. Tristan Waight was only 20 years old when he was diagnosed with Hodgkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lymphoma last year. The Leukaemia Foundation was there for Tristan throughout his journey with blood cancer and provided him with emotional and financial assistance when he needed it the most. To help the Leukaemia Foundation support others like Tristan you can also â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Be Brave and Shaveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and register for the Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Greatest Shave. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to know someone with blood cancer to register and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more fun with a group. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to take part with family and friends at home, work, school, or at

your local club. All you need are some clippers, coloured hairspray and a group of people who are ready to have fun raising money for an important cause.

BARWON Health has announced the appointment of Dr David Ashbridge to the position of Chief Executive Officer. Barwon Health Board Chair, Dr Owen Donald, said that he is delighted to announce Dr Ashbridgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s appointment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After a rigorous recruitment process we have found in Dr Ashbridge an individual who is ideally suited to both Barwon Health and the greater Geelong community,â&#x20AC;? Dr Donald said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dr Ashbridge has extensive knowledge and experience in health services management and medical practice. His track record with Northern Territory Health has displayed his suitability for the diverse needs of this role.â&#x20AC;? Dr Ashbridge has been chief executive of the Northern Territory Department of Health and Families since 2006. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With an annual budget in excess of $1billion, he has been responsible for all publicly provided and community-based acute care, primary care, public health and welfare services in the Northern Territory. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dr Ashbridge brings new and exceptional talent to Barwon Health, the South West Region and Victoria as a whole,â&#x20AC;? Dr Donald said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His achievements to date, particularly in the improvement of Indigenous health outcomes, display his commitment to prevention and early intervention through community-based health services.â&#x20AC;? Dr Ashbridge said he was excited to accept the appointment and the opportunity to continue to build on

Barwon Healthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excellent reputation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very much looking forward to leading an organisation that is so integral to the community and one that is recognised for its care, innovation in practice and its people,â&#x20AC;? he said. In announcing this appointment, Dr Donald paid tribute to the previous chief executive officer, Sue De Gilio, and the acting CEO, Paul Cohen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sue provided exceptional leadership for eight years, positioning Barwon Health as an organisation that others benchmark against,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since Sueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s departure, Paul has led Barwon Health with enormous energy and distinction. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are very grateful for his commitment and contribution.â&#x20AC;? Dr Ashbridge is expected to commence the position in April 2010.

Children encouraged to TRYathlon MORE THAN 1,000 children from around the Surf Coast and Bellarine will join Geelong youngsters in a history-making attempt later this month at the 2010 Weet-Bix Kids TRYathlon event. The event â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to be held on Sunday, February 28 at Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eastern Beach â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is aiming to set a new world record for the largest number of competitors in an under 16 triathlon event, as part of the nationwide TRYathlon series. The event is open to children aged between seven and 15, with registrations closing on Wednesday, February 24. Action on the day will start at 8.30am with the swim leg of the 11-15 years age event, with the 7-9 years division starting their swim at 9.15am. Triathlon continues to be one of the most popular sports in the country, with the three disciplines of swimming, cycling and running the ideal way to

introduce children into sport in a fun and friendly environment. Now in its 12th year, the TRYathlon encompasses seven events held across the country from January to April. Challenging the record set in 2008 when 11,831 Aussie and 17,129 Kiwi kids took part, an estimated 14,500 Australian children and 20,000 New Zealanders are expected to participate, with the new record attempt recognised by the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s governing body, the International Triathlon Union. For more information or to register for the event, visit www.weetbix.com.au Torquayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Will and Alex Marshall have been busy preparing for the Tryathlon event, which will be held later this month.

Warnings on February asthma â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;epidemicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; WITH the new school year under way, the National Asthma Council Australia is warning parents, teachers and health professionals to prepare for a corresponding spike in asthma emergencies. According to National Asthma Council Australia chairman, general practitioner Dr Noela Whitby AM, the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;February Epidemicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is a well documented phenomenon that will hit in a couple of weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Every year we experience a big asthma spike in both school and pre-school aged children immediately after school goes back, with the peak generally occurring in mid to late February,â&#x20AC;? she said.

Australian research, conducted in Sydney from 1994 to 2000, found that the increased risk of hospitalisation for asthma in February was threefold in children aged five to 14 years and double in preschoolers, with the peak occurring three and a half weeks into the new school year. Increased risks were also recorded at the start of each subsequent school term; however the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;February Epidemicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is by far the most significant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Returning to school is strongly associated with increased asthma symptoms in children and increased hospitalisation, especially following the summer break, a trend that is common in both the

She attributes the back to school asthma spike to increased exposure to respiratory viruses, predominately rhinovirus â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the same virus that triggers the common cold â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and also a relaxing of the asthma management regimen over the summer. To minimise the impact of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back to school asthma spike, the National Asthma Council Australia is urging parents to make sure that their child has an up-to-date written asthma action plan, prepared by their general practitioner, and to ensure that their school or pre-school has a copy.

284 Torquay Road Grovedale

GRAHAM Gibson has been presented with the Portarlington-Drysdale Lions Club’s Alan J Holding Community Service Award from visiting District Governor, Bob Gilchrist, at a special dinner. The award – named in honour of Holding, who was a former district governor – recognises Gibson’s work for the community Gibson has been a tireless community worker wherever he has lived, including being a volunteer firefighter for 50 years and, among other things, he was an organiser of Colac’s famous six-day bike race. To encourage older people to keep fit, he started the Portarlington Pedal Group, which has grown rapidly, and he also became involved in the Portarlington Primary School’s bicycle education programme, where he chaperoned small groups along the road.

Gibson also tests and repairs their bikes and has built up and donated more than 20 bikes for children who can’t afford one. Geelong’s Glastonbury Child and Family Service has also benefited from his rebuilt and donated bikes, and, after the Black Saturday, he rebuilt 50 bikes for adults and children of the Kinglake and Marysville areas. Gibson promotes his Portarlington Pedal Group, speaking to people and encouraging them to join whenever he gets the opportunity. “Did you dance when you were young? Well, you can ride a bike now!” is one of his favourite lines. Portarlington Pedal Group features carefully designed routes along picturesque country roads, where Gibson stays at the back encouraging and helping the slower ones, while his wife, Moira, takes the lead up front.

Industry Info

Local market continues upward trend

Regional Victoria prices increase THE REIV December quarter property update has revealed that a combination of better-thanexpected economic conditions and population growth has resulted in increased demand for property in regional Victoria. The median price of a house in Ballarat, Bendigo, Geelong, Sale and Shepparton has increased in the December quarter. Solid growth over the past 12 months was also recorded. The median house price in the City of Ballarat is $265,000, an increase of 7.3 per cent from $247,000 in the September quarter 2009. It also recorded a 15.7 per cent increase over 2009. Solid results were also recorded in Greater Bendigo, where the median increased by 4.3 per cent to $261,000 from $250,250. Increased demand for homes in Greater Geelong saw the median price increase by 4.4 per cent to $342,000 from $327,500. In the Latrobe valley, Sale’s median house price increased by 8.5 per cent from $282,000 to $306,000. Shepparton recorded a very strong increase in line with metropolitan Melbourne, with a 16.5 per cent increase to $245,000. Across the state, population growth is a positive factor and is expected to continue to underpin demand over the next 12 months. The rental vacancy rate continues to be low in the same centres where the median price has been increasing. In the Geelong region it was 1.1 per cent in December, in Bendigo it was 0.5 per cent and in Ballarat it was 0.8 per cent. More information on median prices and a video analysis are available from www.reiv.com.au

combined, so we met huge numbers of buyers and it meant that we were really able to take the pulse of the market,” he said. “The feedback over the last month or so has been truly positive, both about the market in general and Anglesea in particular. Then to have 100 people and six bidders at the Cameron Road auction was just a testament to Anglesea’s growing attraction.” Daniel Hayden, certified practicing valuer and Hayden Real Estate director, has analysed the market trends for the past three years on behalf of the Surf Coast Times and Bellarine Times. He says there is no doubt that Anglesea is moving ahead in leaps and bounds. “According to Surf Coast Shire data, in the three months to the end of January 2009 there were 13 sales in Anglesea, with a median price of $455,000. This was an increase from a year before where the median price was $446,000.” In the corresponding period from November 2009 to January 2010, data from the Surf Coast Shire and those statistics provided by Hayden Real Estate indicate the median price rose to $682,000. “The telling trend is that from November 2007 to January 2008, 62 per cent of property sold during

Record result for Barry Plant IT HAS been 12 record months in a row for Barry Plant real estate. The results underline just how hard it is to believe that only 12 months ago, the real estate industry was facing great uncertainty. Media reports from both overseas and onshore suggested we were headed for a deep recession as the stock market plummeted and consumer confidence fell. Twelve months later, the results are in – and the Barry Plant Group had record figures for every month throughout 2009. During the first four months of the year, when the overall real estate market in Victoria contracted by 26 per cent, The Barry Plant Group grew by 16 per cent, placing them 42 per cent ahead of their competitors (based on independent research by RP Data). The value of sales for the Barry Plant Group during 2009 – nearly $4.4billion – was up 35.1 per cent on 2008 and 21.8 per cent on 2007 while the number of properties sold – 10,441 in total – was up 21.8 per cent on 2008 and15.1 per cent on 2007. “Real estate – and in particular Melbourne metropolitan real estate is looking very healthy,” commented Mike McCarthy, chief executive officer and director of the Barry Plant Group. “Values are rising – in part due to a resurgence of consumer confidence and also fuelled by a chronic housing shortage. I expect even more records to tumble for the Barry Plant Group in 2010.”

McCarthy, however, was quick to acknowledge that the past year was full of challenges and uncertainty. “In mid 2008, I could see the dramatic effect the sub-prime crisis was having on the American real estate market and, with my team, devised a strategy to “recession proof” our franchisees,” he said. “Confidence is vital in these sorts of situations, as it is too easy to be overwhelmed by a persistently gloom media. We held workshops with all our franchisees identifying the coming challenges, our strengths and weaknesses and what we could do to capitalise on our strengths and shore up our weaknesses. “This exercise helped purge the pessimism and replace it with confidence. We changed our training to meet the challenges in the market place, to make sure our sales people had the skills to get the very best outcomes for their vendors in what was – in the early part of the year – a very confusing real estate market. “Once we got the first four record months under our belt it was a case of ‘success breeds success’. “While 2010 will no doubt throw up some different challenges, we’ll continue to revisit our strategies and strive to improve every aspect of our franchise offering. “By doing this I’m optimistic that the Barry Plant Group will keep growing and re-writing the record books as Victoria’s property market continues its resurgence.”

this period was below $500,000. “From November 2008 to January 2009 the figure was down to 53 per cent while this year in the three months until January 2010 only 23% sold for less than the $500,000 threshold,” Daniel Hayden said. He agreed that it wouldn’t be unexpected, within two or three years, to see property at below half a million dollars in Anglesea virtually disappear. With the Geelong Ring Road and the works on the Great Ocean Road now complete, vastly improved travel times mean that Anglesea is now being considered as a realistic commuting option. The opportunity to bring up a family in the coastal environs, along with all the advantages that entails for residents, without having to make the career sacrifices that have traditionally gone with this choice, is becoming an increasing lure. Add this to the demand from existing local residents, retirees and those seeking holiday homes, and Anglesea is staking its claim as clearly the best and most keenly sought after lifestyle location on the Surf Coast.

ANGLESEA often flies under the radar when it comes to property results, with the higher profiles of Torquay and Lorne tending to make the headlines. Recently, however, Anglesea has stepped out of the shadow, and the local market has witnessed some stellar results in the past few weeks. Marius Tekin of Hayden Real Estate has experienced an exceptional series of sales during the month of January, including the hugely successful auction of 38 Cameron Road on the Australia Day long weekend. In total he negotiated 13 sales for the month, which Hayden directors Bernie von Brandenstein and Bryan Hayden confirmed was a record for the business. “The market is really moving solidly, with some great results over the last three or four months, January in particular,” Hayden said. “But the market doesn’t sell itself. Marius has been working seven days a week and it is only this level of work ethic that brings the top results.” Tekin agreed that the hard work had paid dividends. “During January we did more Open For Inspections than all the other agents in town

FIRST HOUSES BUILT AFTER SALE Extracts from â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;History of Torquayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by James A Baines 1938

William Pride, born in Somerset, became a saddler in Malop Street, Geelong and apart from Pride Street, he took a leading part in Improvement Association affairs), his name will always be associated with the wreck of the Joseph H Scammell, because of his action in converting the deck-house of the stricken vessel into a most original and nautical home. Mr A Wilson states that it was a difficult job getting the deck-house to the top of the cliff with the aid of horses, block and tackle. H Wm. Buckland built his house in Anderson Street the same year, after having taken houses for short periods, for some time prior to that. At first with the leagal firm of Taylor, Buckland & Gates, Mr Buckland was for years honorary secretary of the TIA, but resigned on becoming secretary of the Shire of South Barwon. His Uncle, Stephen Wine Buckalnd, born at Camden, NSW sold land which was subdivided, forming Buckalnd Avenue and Laurel Bank Parade, Newtown, while his grandfather, John B had been on a sloop in coastal exploration very early in Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history.

Metricon continues to make the dream of home ownership a reality by selecting from its extensive range of inspiring single and double storey award-winning homes jam-packed with features, but without the huge price tag. With affordability a big focus for home buyers this year, there is no need to compromise when you choose Metricon. Metricon’s sales and marketing manager, Simon Lofts, said that in 2010 Metricon has created a number of innovative solutions that will assist home buyers to make their home ownership dreams come true by reviewing our prices for regional Victoria. “We recognise that particularly within the building industry, we need to be competitive – without compromising on quality, design and value, which is why Metricon have made their homes more affordable than ever before,” Lofts said. “Our high standards extend to our professional new home consultants, who are customer focused and dedicated to helping home buyers realise their dreams. “In fact, our point of difference – according to feedback from people who’ve built with us – is our personalised attention and being able to deliver the ultimate building experience. “Our 2010 promotion reflects our core customer values of design, value, quality and trust. And now is the ideal time to build and be tempted with up to $30,000 worth of extras for an attractive $4,950. “Our Allure promotion makes it easy and affordable to tailor your home to suit your individual needs. The possibilities are endless with any combination – which allows you to freely choose your own options – to an affordable maximum spend of $4,950. “This demonstrates not only affordability but also flexibility within our packages – it’s never been more achievable, easier and more exciting to build the home of your dreams.” You will need to be quick to take advantage of this promotion, as it is available for a limited time only and conditions apply. “In 2010 Metricon is offering our customers more choice makes with new displays, new designs and a great selection of home and land packages to suit all budgets,” Lofts said. “And to top this all off, all of our homes feature superior quality workmanship, independent quality checks and a rock-solid 25-year structural guarantee. “We have stepped up the antics in 2010 by offering customers an 18-week build time guarantee. “This reflects our confidence in our operations and also takes the pressure off those who have rental costs whilst waiting for their homes to be built.” For more information, phone 1300 638 742 or visit www.metricon.com.au

You Butter be there for the Box TORQUAY Hotel will play host to some of Melbourne’s hottest and most talented musicians this Saturday night when Butterbox takes to the stage. The Butterbox boys have been mixing tunes together since early 2008 and their distinctive sound has been embraced by dance floors all over the city. Butterbox’s fusion of hip hop, rock and electro has shaped one of Australia’s most magnetic and eclectic sounds. Meeting through mutual friends, this compelling group has taken little time to make a name for itself on Melbourne’s competitive dance scene. Each Butterbox member has their own style and unforgettable stage presence. KD, a well recognised DJ, has mixed up a storm in some of Melbourne’s best known nightspots over past summers, including at The Motel, Cushion, Tramp and Q bar. His desire for deep progressive sounds and dirty electro beats has led to the perfect combination for the group. Mister Em Town is arguably one of Australia’s best vocalists. He is what you get when you mix ambition, diversity and talent. His raw and engaging tenor, matched with his effervescent energy on stage brings him to the forefront of his profession. Diamond D and his enigmatic nature pilots Butterbox’s production process at all times – put him on a stage and this rowdy Melbournian takes over. His rambunctious nature perfectly complements his pure rhymes and natural vocal style. Rounding out the band is Bobby Love – a tattooed, rock and roll monster that is hard, road tested, and brings two worlds together. Love is a veteran of more than 10 years playing in rock bands. Now he has championed the challenge of meshing his six-string sounds and record-

spinning craftiness with the irresistible dance dirge that is Butterbox. The boys have drawn their influences from such music icons as Timbaland, MSTRKRFT, Goose, Lupe Fiasco, AC/DC, and Common.

The outfit spent last winter hibernated in the studio to record the freshest summer tracks for 2010, kicking off with Addicted which took just one week to hit number one on the Triple J Unearthed dance charts.

With a high-energy and often unpredictable live show, Butterbox is a group not to be missed For more information on Butterbox’s performance on Saturday night, phone the Torquay Hotel on 5261 2001.

Think pink this Valentine’s Day OKAY, so you’ve done the roses, the chocolates, the dinner booking etc… now, what about the wine? With Valentine’s Day just around the corner it might be a good idea to get that someone special something nice to drink. Here are some suggestions to hopefully help you win their heart – and palate – good luck!

Stella Bella Pink Muscat 375ml ($19) Made from the Muscat grape, this delightful dessert styled wine is a delicate, light (only seven per cent alcohol), refreshing sweet wine with a flush of pink. It balances the richness of the fresh summer fruit flavours against the brightness and vibrancy of the acidity beautifully.

De Bortoli Emeri Pink Moscato ($11) De Bortoli has developed this into an exciting little sweet spritzy sparkler that is simple yet effective. A pale pink in colour, with ripe fresh fruits dominating the light (eight per cent alcohol) palate and lovely hints of strawberries, fresh blossom, musk and spice aromas on the nose.

Louis Bouillot Cremant de Bourgogne Rosé Perle d’Aurore NV ($30)

I have featured this on a few occasions now as it’s a quality French ‘pink’ bubbly and with Valentine’s Day approaching it would make for a nice gift for that someone special. Founded in 1877 by Jean Bouillot, a wine and spirit merchant, Louis Bouillot specialised in making Crémant de Bourgogne in the Nuits-Saint-Georges region of Burgundy. This is an excellent expression of sparkling Pinot Noir, in its ‘fruity’ dry maturity. A pale rosé in colour, it delights with fine bubbles and blackcurrant and strawberry fruity notes that are in no way ‘sweet’ and overall good length and breadth of flavour. The finish shows good acid, and soft lingering flavours.

Respected writers to speak at Aireys LITERARY husband and wife team, Hannie Rayson and Michael Cathcart, will be special guests at Aireys Inlet’s Great Escape Books this Saturday. From 6pm, multi-award winning playwright Rayson and her husband, historian and ABC broadcaster Cathcart, will be discussing life and literature while living and writing under the same roof. Rayson is recognised as one of Australia’s most significant playwrights. Her first major success was Hotel Sorrento, which won several prizes, including the Australian Writers Guild Award. The play has become an Australian classic and the film version won an AFI Award for best screenplay. Her more recent works include Falling from Grace, Scenes from a Separation (written with Andrew Bovell), Competitive Tenderness, Life After George, Inheritance and The Glass Soldier. Her latest play, The Swimming Club, opened for the Melbourne Theatre Company late last month and looks set to be another great success.

Dr Michael Cathcart is a writer, broadcaster and historian, who is well-known for his acclaimed abridgment of Manning Clark’s six-volume classic, A History of Australia and for his work on ABC radio and television. His latest book is The Water Dreamers: The Remarkable History of Our Dry Continent. It tells the story of how settler Australians attempted to transform this dry continent and how it, in turn, changed them. Together these two talented literary minds will discuss how they successfully live and work together, in an intimate, free discussion. Rayson was last heard in Aireys Inlet at the 2008 Festival of Words in a very popular session with Andrew Knight and Dr Rob Moody about playwriting. This visit promises to be every bit as enlightening and entertaining. Great Escape Books is situated at 75 Great Ocean Road, Aireys Inlet, and bookings are essential as spaces are limited. For further information and to book, email nicole@greatescapebooks.com.au or phone 5289 7052.

Take to the stage at Aireys Tuesday 9 February 2010

THE AIREYS Inlet Open Mic Festival is calling on all budding musicians to get their entries in for this year’s event. With just over a month to go until the threeday festival, organisers are again expecting another influx of performers. Last year, more than 80 musicians – ranging in age from their teens to 70s – graced the stages throughout the town to perform live. This year’s festival will be held from March 12-14 – and is a celebration of the wide-ranging talents along the Surf Coast and surrounding regions. Now in its third year, the festival is looking to hear from musicians of all ages and abilities who play any and every style of music – from pop, to rock, to blues, folk, jazz or country – or perhaps even a style that can’t be categorised. There is no need to worry about the level of experience as a performer as the festival encourages all abilities to showcase their talents, as seasoned performers will hit the stage alongside absolute first timers, as this is one festival with a spot for everyone. The festival is all about bringing people together through the power of music.

Whether you’re a budding solo artist, a regular gigging group or you’ve always wanted to take your singing out of the shower and to the next level, the Aireys Inlet Open Mic Music Festival offers the chance for everyone to perform. The festival was started by music lovers in the Aireys Inlet Tourism and Traders Association in 2008. It was initiated as a positive festival with a creative vibe where music lovers can gather on the coast and appreciate talented local musicians and their music. From its humble beginnings the event has quickly grown into a full-blown weekend festival of music, with performances this year set to take place on seven separate stages at indoor and outdoor venues across Aireys Inlet. The first festival featured 52 local acts, with 86 performing last year, and this year’s list is expected to top the 100-mark. Performers keen to get involved need to register their interest and provide links to examples of their music to assist the organisers in scheduling their act at the appropriate time and venue.

A festival full of stars

Tuesday 9 February 2010

THE LINE-UP for the Apollo Bay Music Festival has been finalised â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with some of the biggest and best Australian and international talent set to converge on the town next month. The iconic festival will this year celebrate its 18th birthday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and it is set to celebrate in style. To be held from March 26-28, the festival will not only include some of the best national and overseas artists, but will also pay homage to the festival that started all festivals â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Woodstock. This year, the festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very own Baystock will pay tribute to the 1969 festival held in New York which changed the face of festivals forever. Baystock will see a number of acts take to the stage to perform songs from the Woodstock era, including festival patron, Jon Von Goeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s band, Aloi Head & The Victor Motors, who will put their own stamp on The Whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Summertime Blues, James Blundell will perform The Bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Weight and Nielson Gough Quartet will do Blackbird like no other. Crossing the world and crossing genres, the 2010 programme is a wonderfully

diverse mix of the music and artists complemented by curated special events and workshops that give an extra dimension to this award-winning major regional event. On top of this, the opening Street Parade is bringing back the float; Bagpipes will fill the Otways, street performers will abound, and a special unplugged earth hour concert will take place at the Star of the Sea Catholic Church. Headlining the list of acts is Kasey Chambers, James Blundell, Eddi Reader and The Flatlanders to name but a few. A further taste of acts appearing includes: Chris Smither, Snarski vs Snarski, Bob Brozman, The Whitetop Mountaineers, Wilson Pickers, Washington, Josh White Jnr, Djan Djan, Kerri Simpson, Ghost Mutt, The Go Set and Paul Greene, as well as the Apollo Bay Community Choir. Add to this Louisiana legends, Lil Band Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Gold, The Wolfgramm Sisters, Even, Big Low, Lightly Toasted and Sally Dastey reforming the Sweet Sceptics for a one off show and you have a festival to remember. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Young Performer winner, Katie Maxwell and King Marong and Afro

Mandinko are also back by demand to deliver a finale with a bang. Special events include one of the most loved, feared and brilliant comedians to stand behind a microphone in Anthony Morgan. He has been lured back to the stage for one performance only; other highlights include Suitcase Royale presenting the theatre production of The Ballad of Back Bone Joe; Tenzin Choegyal and the Tashi Lumpo Monks will bring some calm and The Windy Hills will perform a live soundtrack to the film The Last Hope. For the younger festival goers, the Kids Under Canvas features Gee Whizz Kids, Canya Dantz, Kathy Prosserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Possum Magic, Didi Peters, Josh White Jnr and workshops in circus, drumming and much more â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ensuring the festival is great family entertainment. For more information and to book tickets, visit www.apollobaymusicfestival.com Multi-award winning artist Kasey Chambers is one of the star attractions at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival.

Join the green revolution

Get into the groove

BY SARAH LAWRENCE AN ABUNDANCE of local produce, delicious food and a green atmosphere are all on offer at Torquayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest eatery, The Green Room. Jason and Megan Crawford recently opened the Bell Street venue after moving from Brunswick in Melbourne where they worked in the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s booming cafĂŠ scene. The venueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s philosophy focuses on using local food and beverages and includes an exclusively local wine visit. The menu has many tasty and affordable choices for breakfast, lunch and dinner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The idea was to give top quality produce at pub prices,â&#x20AC;? explained Jason. One of their most popular lunch

Jason said. A key feature is the childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s menu, which includes a number of healthy options, all priced at $10. The choices include pan-fried fish with house cut chips and cos lettuce, tomato and cucumber salad dressed with olive oil and homemade gnocci with Napoli sauce, basil leaves and cheese.

as well as some old favourites that range from township jive to haunting traditionally inspired melodies, with all songs composed by South African-born Valanga, which tell stories of the past and present, a journey reminding us of our shared humanity. Valanga was born in the Limpopo Province of South Africa, where he grew up in a traditional setting surrounded by lively singing, drumming and dancing. The Limpopo area is rich in traditional healers, orators and storytellers, highly respected throughout Africa; and these people were his neighbours. Their nightly ceremonies carried songs and rhythms passed down through thousands of years, and Valanga carries these influences through his songs and storytelling.

profiles on local tradies WORDS AND PHOTOS: SARAH LAWRENCE

ADRIAN WAITE FROM AUSTECH ANTENNAS

WITH more than 20 years experience in the antenna industry, Adrian Waite is a tradesman you can trust for excellent service and use of the highest quality equipment. “I use the best quality antennas, which are heavy duty and made in Australia,” he said. “I use the latest European test equipment as well for accurate signal measurement checks.” Waite specialises in digital installations, digital reception problems, extra telephone points, home theatre set up and tuning as well as satellite systems for black spot reception areas.

With the government’s decision to switch from analog transmission to digital-only transmission by the end of 2013, many people need to install set top boxes. Waite is a government approved digital installer and takes time with customers to ensure everything is explained clearly with written instructions. He is also well respected for his ability to turn up on time, friendliness and honesty with customers. For more information, phone Waite on 0408 803 634 or 5264 7660.

BARNABY LESTER FROM URBAN LANDSCAPES ENSURING the highest quality work, there are no corners cut with Urban Coast Landscapes. Barnaby Lester has been running the business on the coast for the past nine months and has seen it quickly become one of the region’s busiest and most well respected landscaping businesses. According to Lester he is able to do “just about anything that can be done in a front or backyard”. The services offered include all types of paving, decking, brickwork, plantings and pruning. “What sets me apart from the others is where and who I learned my trade from – that being a master landscaper of 30 years experience and working in the best suburbs of Melbourne, including Middle Park, Toorak, South Yarra, St Kilda and Port Melbourne,” said Lester. He is anticipating work in the coming months at some of Torquay’s most prestigious properties as well as lots of business from the growing area. For more information, phone Lester on 0411 233 671.

ALAN BAYNE FROM OCEAN ROAD PROPERTY MAINTENANCE A FANTASTIC name that you can trust to get all those property maintenance tasks fixed is Ocean Road Property Maintenance. For the past 25 years, Alan Bayne has learned every type of maintenance, from security doors, flyscreens, interior blinds, locks and garden maintenance to renovated decks and painting. “We are a ‘one-stop shop’ you might call us,” Bayne said. “Instead of calling the blind company, a lock company, security door company or carpenter, we do it all. We also travel to buy the correct part for the job, not just use what’s in the car.” The business has an excellent reputation for high quality service with many local real estate agents as clients. For more information, phone Bayne on 0412 367 093

ROBYN THE DRESSMAKER

FEB 9-FEB 15 2010 Show me the money! With the New Moon lighting up your cash zone, it’s time to take stock of your financial situation and initiate some smart new strategies. Abundance is all around – you just have to tap into it. And don’t forget to do an inventory of your inner wealth too, which includes your self-esteem and core values..

Rams pride themselves on their independence and ability to go it alone. However, this week’s New Moon urges you to find fresh ways to connect with those around you, whether at home, at work or at play. The power of the group is on your side as you spark ideas off each other and pool talents to create something special.

Crabs are sentimental creatures and can spend too much time in the past. Don’t brood over love gone wrong. This week’s stars will help heal your hurt feelings so you can finally move on. The New Moon signals a fresh start in the areas of sex or money. Perhaps a passionate new relationship or the overhaul of joint finances?

The New Moon lights up your entertainment sector, so the weekend should be full of fun and frivolity with family and friends. Prepare to shake out your dusty dancing shoes and party like a pro! For quieter Librans, the stars favour creative pursuits and spending quality time with the special children in your life.

How’s work going? Are you overdue for a pay rise or promotion? Is it time to look for a better job or change vocation? Maybe you need to work smarter, not harder? If you resist making changes, you’ll be left behind. Look for exciting ways to inject fresh energy into your career. Networking with friends and colleagues brings benefits.

Mae West, Mick Jagger, Madonna, Jennifer Lopez … why are so many major entertainers (past and present) also Leos? Because they relish being the centre of attention. With the New Moon in your relationship zone, the challenge is to share the spotlight with someone else, whether it’s a loved one, friend or business partner.

With Mercury visiting your domestic zone (until March 1) now is the time to speak up about family ‘issues’. You’re able to express yourself eloquently and loved ones are keen to hear what you have to say. Make your home a heavenly haven and cocoon of calm, away from the hustle and bustle of the busy world outside.

Aquarians are twice as much fun – and twice as much trouble, as the New Moon and Mercury zoom through your sign. You’re feeling friendly, funny and fabulous; but also restless, reckless and rebellious as you re-model an important area of your life. You’re in the mood to shake loved ones out of their comfort zones so look out world!

Restless Gemini – you’re incredibly busy but are you actually achieving anything? If you tackle tasks in short, sharp bursts it will keep you interested and you’ll gradually get things done. You’re at your curious best on the weekend, as the New Moon stimulates your brain power. So it’s the ideal time to study, read, research and investigate.

With the New Moon activating your health zone, it’s time to start a new diet and exercise programme. Swap cream buns for carrot juice, and long TV sessions for power walks and trips to the gym. Virgos thrive on routine and a healthy lifestyle, so stop the excuses and start now. Venus moves into your love zone so you’re ready for romance.

With four planets in your communication zone, your chatter is more verbose than usual. But are all those words really necessary? Contemplate the wisdom of Abraham Lincoln (born on February 12) “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.” Sunday’s New Moon highlights your restless side.

Pisceans are the masters of avoidance – never more so than now, with four planets in your ‘escaping’ zone. If you have a problem that needs to be faced, or a decision that needs to be made, stop procrastinating. In the words of birthday great Abraham Lincoln “You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today”.

Hughes takes the title AIREYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S Inletâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Steve Hughes was the star performer at the Victorian Masters Surfing Titles held at Jan Juc over the weekend. With a small easterly swell on offer and light onshore winds, both the male and female divisions received consistent conditions throughout the day. The over 28 menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s division was a hotly contest division with high scores and big maneuvers, with Hughes (Aireys Inlet) taking out the division in a classy display of power surfing. Taking out every heat with multiple excellent scoring rides, Hughes was the standout surfer throughout the event. In the final, Hughes amassed a total of 14.34 (out of a possible 20) to take out Tim Birnie (Jan Juc) with 11.07, Eli Curry (Phillip Island) with 8.60, and Derek Bassed (Sandy Point) with 7.30. Other winners on the day were Rowan Sapwell (Jan Juc, O/45 Men), Shayleigh Chapman (Torquay, O/28 Women), Michelle Fincher (Phillip Island, O/35 Women), Grayme Galbraith (Jan Juc, O/50 Men), Dave Matthews (Jan Juc, O/40 Men), Cam Lamperd (Ocean Grove, O/35 Men).

A chance to learn from the best THE PLAY it Safe by the Water Surf with the Boys tour presented by Oakley will roll into the Surf Coast and Bellarine this weekend to show up and coming male surfers how to be safe in the water while surfing with some of Victoria’s best surfers. The tour will visit Jan Juc on Friday and 13th Beach on Saturday, with World Qualifying Series surfer and Rip Curl Pro runner up Adam Robertson and fellow WQS surfer Jack Perry (Jan Juc) on hand to surf with the boys and pass on some valuable knowledge. Participants will be learning and hanging out with Robertson and Perry and with both surfers looking to continue their WQS campaigns in 2010, there will be some world-class surfing on show for the boys to experience. This is a rare opportunity to receive coaching from two of Victoria’s best surfers and is not to be missed.

Robertson is stoked to be a part of the programme for the up and coming surfers in the region. “A programme like this would have been great when I first began competing,” he said. “The kids are getting a chance to improve their ability without having to travel.” The days are for intermediate to experienced surfers and are a chance for them to further their surfing skills. The sessions are free to all boys and will include a talk on surf safety, how to perform a beach rescue and a free surfing session with Robertson and Perry. Entries are limited for the day so anyone interested is encouraged to enter online at www.surfingvic.com as soon as possible. For more information, phone Surfing Victoria on 5261 2907 or e-mail info@surfingvic.com

Rip Curl Pro runner-up Adam Robertson will be on hand to provide tips at Jan Juc and 13th beach this week. Photo: LIAM ROBERTSON/SURFING VICTORIA

Stand up paddling on the go ONE OF the fastest growing sports in Australia, stand up paddleboarding, is now being introduced into surf schools throughout the country. With the stand up paddleboard (SUP) recognised as a fairly serious surf craft in any surf break, surf schools are actively engaged in creating learning systems to fast track learners. At the same time, the schools are keen to ensure, as they progress into the surf, they have the skills and knowledge required to keep both themselves and surrounding surfers safe. Expect to see more and more SUP riders in the water, and hopefully they will be well trained by the time they hit the surf.

Riders set to tackle the marathon THREE world champions will join thousands of other mountain bikers for Victoria’s biggest mountain bike race later this month. The Otway Odyssey Marathon – to be held between Apollo Bay and Forrest – will draw some of the best mountain bikers in the country to tackle the 100-kilometre event on Saturday, February 20. For those looking for something a little shorter in distance, there will also be a 50km event – known as the Otway Shorty – which starts and finishes in Forrest, while the Otway Pioneer is an event for children covering 15km. The event is the second biggest mountain bike race in the country behind the Kona 24hour, and is in its fourth year. Several Australian champions will also tackle the course, while there will be a bike expo held at Forrest Football Ground, where spectators and competitors can shop for all the best bike products while tasting local produce. Torquay’s Rapid Ascent manages the event and is looking forward to another successful race.

Torquay’s Alex Robertson learns by experience how to handle wipeouts on the stand up paddleboard.

LONSDALE GOLF CLUB

WITH PETER MAISHMAN

WITH the opening of the season last weekend, we believe it appropriate to reflect on our Past, Present and Future. Past: In 1921 the ‘Point Lonsdale Golf Links’ was formed and 45 acres of land was purchased – a nine-hole golf course was opened in November 1922 and a small clubhouse erected in 1931 with change of name to Point Lonsdale Golf Links Club. In 1957 a new clubhouse was opened. Present: Over the last several years the course has been greatly enhanced and is more ‘user friendly’. Dedicated work by course superintendent, Tim Smith, and his team, including a Thursday volunteer group, has achieved this goal. A new desalination plant has assisted

CURLEWIS GOLF CLUB Competition results ON SATURDAY the club held a Stroke event with a field of 146 teeing it up with weather conditions being conducive to good golf. The winners for the day were for A Grade: Club superintendent, R Bradley (10) with the best score of the day of 62, B Grade: V Spehar (19) with 70, and for C Grade: R Barras (23) with 69. The Nearest to Pin winners were M Terrington (4th), J Schill (8th), G Peacock (13th), and E Komadina (17th). For the ladies the winner was J Brown (20) with 75. The Nearest the Pin winner on the 17th hole was J Alderdice.

Word from the ladies A very much depleted and sodden field

in improvement of tees and greens and a compliment on the condition of the course from Craig Parry at our recent Pro-Am was very much appreciated. Facilities: Recent improvements to our club include a new spacious pro-shop and extension to the clubhouse, incorporating an additional dining room and bar which will allow the club to cater for weddings and special events. Members, guests and green fee players are always welcome to play and enjoy these facilities which are air conditioned in summer and heated with a large open log fire in winter and complemented by the hospitality in the fully licensed bar and Tea Trees Restaurant. Lonsdale has an ‘on course’ teaching professional and a well stocked pro-shop and two practice areas.

Future: Concerns, especially the lack of water and the need to upgrade the course further has resulted in the culmination of an exciting redevelopment plans. These are: • To improve the quality of the course involving redesign and purchase of additional land • Provide and ensure an adequate and reliable water supply • Construct a new clubhouse • Create a residential sub-division to generate funds for capital works and supporting actions. Detailed redevelopment plans are now with the City of Greater Geelong Council and we await their consideration.

Club for activities occurring during the tournament”. “In this regard and consistent with your stance on sustainable fishing, we would ask you to strongly encourage participants to give preference to catch and release fishing and avoid the killing of mako sharks wherever possible”. It is suggested that other clubs/organisations and fishermen in similar situations write to the department urgently seeking advice along similar lines. There is no water-clad guarantee that a fishing club or fisherman cannot be charged with offences under the EPBC Act at this stage. Many in the fishing world are still unsure as to what is and what isn’t allowed under the current law until such time as the amendments go through. I, for one, am not prepared to tell people it is okay to fish for mako shark though I have had dozens of people ask me if they can, especially as the projected fine is around $11,000. As it stands it is up to each individual to make their own judgment call.

IT SEEMS the dust has still not settled on the great mako shark debate. Last week in Tasmania the St Helens Game Fishing Club sort urgent clarification from environment minister, Peter Garrett, on whether (and how) game fishing clubs can still hold their upcoming tournaments. The club and the mayor of the local council were worried about the fate of their key community event in light of the listing of mako sharks under the EPBC Act on January 29, and whether they could proceed with the event or not. They received a response from the department which specifically addressed the St Helens Game Fishing Club’s upcoming tournament. Key advice in this letter included: “In particular we note that the manner in which the tournaments will be run is intended to promote sustainable fishing practices” and “the department is prepared to indicate now in applying its Compliance and Enforcement Policy it would not take any enforcement action under the current law against either an individual or the St Helens Game Fishing
