FERRY CASE Calls for business case study following release of Bellarine ferry user survey

BY ALISON MARTIN RESULTS of the Bellarine Ferry user survey have been released and supporters of the initiative believe the next step should be a business case study. Environment and Climate Change Minister, Gavin Jennings, said the results of the survey of Bellarine Peninsula residents, funded by the State Government and City of Greater Geelong, were a good starting point for proponents considering the viability of a ferry service. “The survey found there is wide community support for a ferry service but the findings also indicate that regular commuter numbers could be relatively low,” he said. Around 400 residents across the Bellarine region were interviewed by telephone on the potential ferry service. Residents who regularly travel to Melbourne were also invited to meetings held at

Surf Forecast

Ocean Grove and Portarlington to discuss transport options and their likelihood of regularly using a ferry service and what ticket fare they would be willing to pay for a return trip. The survey found that about 400 commuters may choose to travel by a ferry to work in Melbourne on a weekday basis and up to 500 non-commuter passengers could make a daily trip for other activities on weekdays and weekends. “Passenger numbers are important to the viability of a ferry service. The open water and variable weather conditions of Port Phillip Bay would require a large passenger ferry in the range of 200to 300-seat capacity if it was to deliver a frequent and reliable commuter service,” Jennings said. Bellarine Ferry Group spokesperson, John Rae, who has worked with Geoff Henderson and Grant Hutchins since 2007 on the ferry campaign, said he was grateful of the money spent on the survey and

was now hoping funding would be made available for the crucial business study to assess viability. He said ferry group members were in the process of assessing the survey data, released last Friday, but based on the initial information, a business study was warranted. “We are looking at the results and will be having a meeting with Lisa Neville (Member for Bellarine) and Gayle Tierney (Member for Western Victoria) within the next two weeks,” Rae said. “We have always said fares would need to be subsidised, just like other public transport, and would need to compare with costs of driving to Geelong and then train fares to Melbourne, with consideration to the greatly reduced travel times. “A business study would need to be based on competitive, subsidised public transport fares, and we see that as the next step.” Member for Bellarine, Lisa Neville, said

the survey had been a direct response to the Portarlington community’s call for a commuter ferry service to Melbourne. “The study information is available to the public, interested parties and potential proponents for ferry services. The government will work with proponents of genuine proposals submitted to it so they can be assessed,” she said The ferry project has received widespread support since launched by Port’s Community Building Initiative, with more than 320 people attending last month’s community ferry forum, organised by Bellarine Liberal Party candidate, Kurt Reiter. Reiter said last week, prior to the release of the survey, that public support was evident, and called for a business plan to be developed. Ferry survey results are available on the Parks Victoria website www.parkweb.vic.gov.au City of Greater Geelong and Department of Transport sites.

Adaption planning for sea level rise.

Tree planting update

STRATEGIC long-term planning to adapt to the future impacts of coastal inundation in a responsible manner will be a significant activity for council for many years to come. To assist councils in developing an adaption strategy to the risk of sea level rise the State Government has recently announced a grant of $13.4m to assist three coastal councils, including Queenscliffe. Building an understanding of the flood risk and the nature and form of this planning will help council work with the community to shape how the borough will evolve over time. Since the introduction in August last year of the CCMA interim floodplain development plan in response to the predicted risk of sea level rise, the CCMA are now considering a 800mm sea level rise by 2100 in all their advice to council. Council is also receiving advice from the Department of Sustainability and Environment on the increase in overall community vulnerability to these predicted risks. Council has so far resolved to approve two planning applications in risk areas (subject to some conditions) and will continue to work with its community reference groups to respond in a timely manner to minimise the impact on the vitality and viability of our community.

As part of the Tree Management, Removal and Replacement Strategy adopted in 2009 seven trees were removed from the Road Reserve in Gellibrand Street and 14 trees were removed from Princess Park. Stage one of the tree replanting programme has commenced with species recommended by the vegetation advisory group planted in the Gellibrand Street road reserve and Princess Park. Fourteen Port Jackson Figs (Ficus Rubinosa) were planted along the park side of the road reserve in Gellibrand Street, with a further 28 trees planted in Princess Park, which included one Morton Bay Fig (Ficus Macrophylla), two Bhutan Cyprus (Cuppressus Torulosa), 17 Stone Pine or Umbrella Pine (Pinus Pinea), four Allepo Pine (Pinus Halepensis), three Japanese Yew or Big Leaf Podocarp (Podocarpus Macrophyllus), and one Queensland Kauri (Agathus Robusta). The advisory group has meet to consider the next stage in the programme and are developing a planting strategy for the remaining advanced trees (Stone Pines, Norfolk Pines, Queensland Kauri and Morton Bay and Port Jackson Figs) that have been purchased.

JL Jordan Reserve boat ramp The redevelopment of the Jordan Reserve boat

ramp will include the installation of larger pontoons and dredging of the area around the ramp to a safe access depth. This will involve the removal of approximately 250 cubic metres of silt and sediment which has some heavy metal contaminants that are normal in a working port. The process to safely remove this material means that the ramp will be closed to the public for about two weeks between August 30 and September 17. $92,000 has been budgeted for this project including a grant from Marine Safety Victoria for $55,880.

Point Lonsdale Surf Lifesaving Club access ramp

This Access Ramp is being reinstated after being severely damaged by storms. The works include a new pier type beach interface ramp which will reduce the potential impact of storm damage as has happened on a number of previous occasions. This work will ensure emergency vehicles and Life Saving Club rescue boats have unrestricted access to one of Victoria’s most dangerous beaches at all times. The cost of this project is approximately $100,000 with the Department of Sustainability contributing $55,000 and the Federal Department of Infrastructure contributing $30,000.

Waiting for a bus

BY ALISON MARTIN

PRESSURE will be on the State Government this year to deliver the promised bus services on the Bellarine required to create a usable, reliable public transport system for commuters. The Public Transport Users Association (PTUA) has raised concerns over the extent of improvements and whether the Bellarine’s rapidly growing commuter population would receive the extra services and inter-connecting timetable it needs. PTUA convenor, Paul Westcott, said stage one of the government’s $80million bus improvement package for Greater Geelong and the Bellarine had been introduced in southern Geelong suburbs, with

the an extra bus service to Leopold. He said stage two was suppose to include the major improvements for the Bellarine, but with the government not confirming details – including the funds available for Bellarine improvements – the PTUA was concerned the peninsula would not gain an adequate public transport system. “We don’t know what we are going to get; the government hasn’t actually told us, but if there is $80million set aside then it will be very disappointing if there are not significant improvements,� Westcott said. A Department of Transport spokesperson said stage two of the package would be “a multi-million dollar investment�, with improvements to include

the new central Geelong bus interchange and better bus connections for residents in North Shore, Corio, Buckley Falls, Hamlyn Heights, Herne Hill, Highton, Queens Park, Wandana Heights, Torquay, Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads, St Leonards and Queenscliff. Member for Bellarine, Lisa Neville, also moved to allay concerns, confirming the State Government was committed to delivering stage two of the project, which was fully funded and would see improved bus services by the end of the year. “While the full details of the service improvements are being finalised we will see an upgrade of services in Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula,� she said. Westcott said despite the increasing population,

the Bellarine’s current bus service was extremely poor. “It’s more of a community bus service, only able to be used by those who have no other option,� he said. “It’s completely inadequate and we were hoping to see some improvements so that it becomes a public transport service used by commuters. “We know that 20 per cent of the Drysdale population is working in Geelong and if you look at Ocean Grove, reliable public transport could make a real dent in the number of cars on the road. “If you consider that half the domestic greenhouse gas comes from cars, then cutting car use is the most significant way to reduce carbon footprint.�

Keeping the community safe BELLARINE residents and visitors are in safe – and well-equipped – hands with the arrival of a $250,000 heavy rescue truck and refurbished rescue boats for the Bellarine VICSES Unit. Member for Bellarine, Lisa Neville, handed over the keys to the rescue vehicle and boat during a visit to the Drysdale-based unit last Friday. She said the truck and boats would help local VICSES volunteers respond to a range of emergency services on land and sea. “The state-of-the-art truck will make Bellarine VICSES members’ jobs easier, especially as they respond to road emergencies, while the refurbished 4.5-metre boat will help volunteers as they work to protect recreational boat users around this famous coastline,� Neville said.

Bellarine VICSES Unit’s 25 volunteer members answer up to 100 storm, flood and road rescue callouts a year. “Bellarine VICSES Unit volunteers do a remarkable job of protecting their fellow community members, from Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads, right around the peninsula to Queenscliff, Portarlington, Drysdale and Leopold,� Neville said.

Pat Culton and Bellarine VICSES volunteers hosted Member for Bellarine, Lisa Neville, at the unit’s base last week for the official handover of their new truck and refurbished boats.

A master craftsman INSIDE THIS EDITION

BY ALISON MARTIN

DUDLEY Davies has been building model boats for more than 25 years and his work encourages fellow woodworkers to learn and develop the intricate craft. Davis is a member of the Bellarine Woodworkers and opens his shed to other boat builders every fortnight for a social sharing of skills, tools and knowledge. The woodworkers group meets twice a month at Drysdale’s SpringDale centre and then subgroups, including the boat builders, scroll saw enthusiasts and wood turners all meet regularly at members’

2 Mayor’s Column 12 Finance 14 Letters 16 Healthy Living 18 Going Green Environmental feature

homes to focus on their preferred skill. Members work throughout the year to create crafted masterpieces that they display and sell at an annual woodworkers exhibition in Queenscliff over New Year. Davis said the group had built three classic couta boat replicas over three consecutive years to be raffled at the exhibition, but admitted most boats became personal collectables. He said his largest pride-and-joy sailing boat had been built over 13 years and while he had given away a few boats, the aim was simply “for pleasure�. Davis’ boat building hobby began when he retired

and his family had given him a kit, but his love of boats had started when he was a child. He is a life member of the Albert Park Yacht Club but he had grown up in Sydney with water frontage and had always been involved with boating in some form. The Bellarine Woodworkers are always looking for new members and are hoping to build their own workshop at the Drysdale Railway Station. Interested craftspeople can attend meetings at SpringDale at 1.30pm on the first and third Mondays of each month or contact Denis Plant for more information on 5257 3313.

Kindergarten concerns AN AUSTRALIA-WIDE initiative to expand kindergarten for fouryear-olds will provide numerous challenges for Bellarine pre-schools, but Queenscliff Kindergarten is determined to find a solution. Kindergarten parents will host a community meeting next week to consider a broad range of options and ideas for successfully implementing the new government reforms. Queenscliff kinder committee spokesperson, Simone McNaught, said the Council of Australian Governments had made significant reforms to early childhood education, which included ‘universal access’ to 15 hours of funded kindergarten a week for children the year before they started school – an increase from 11 hours. “The Queenscliff Kindergarten community has welcomed the increase in hours,

to be implemented by 2013, but it comes at a cost,” McNaught said. “Queenscliff Kindergarten currently runs sessions that cater to both three and four year old children, however, this policy change may well jeopardise the valuable threeyear-old programme.” McNaught said the community meeting arranged by the Queenscliff Kindergarten committee of management has been planned to discuss the future early childhood education needs of the community. Families are invited to contribute their ideas and thoughts at the community meeting, which will be held at the Queenscliff Kindergarten in Stevens Street on Tuesday, July 20 at 7pm. For further details, contact Nicole on 0425 809 974 or Heidi on 0418 513 928 or email earlyyears.qki@ gmail.com

News in brief Clean energy forum THE FIRST Clean Energy Coast Forum will be held at Anglesea later this month with the aim of establishing a united front in the battle against climate change. Community groups and individuals from the Bellarine, Surf Coast and Otways will converge on Anglesea’s Memorial Hall on Friday, July 30, from 3.30pm for a two-hour session.

The forum is the initiative of Liberal candidate for Corangamite, Sarah Henderson, however, the forum steering committee said the session will hold no political alliance whatsoever, with the main focus on community action. During the forum, the floor will be thrown open to everyone to contribute ideas on how best to utilise clean energy and tackle the threat of climate change on our coastal region.

Leopold’s lake view CONSTRUCTION of a viewing platform at Leopold, overlooking Lake Connewarre, started last week as part of a Barwon River Parklands project. Member for Bellarine, Lisa Neville, said the platform at the top of Ash Road and the creation of a walking trail were joint initiatives between the City of Greater Geelong and Parks Victoria.

As well as the viewing platform, stage one incorporates car parking, bike racks, new fencing, indigenous plants and paths. Stage two involves the walking trail and works along Lake Connewarre. A potential stage three includes a boardwalk but is currently unfeasible because Lake Connewarre remains a State Game Reserve.

Talented trio on show BY ALISON MARTIN AFTER being named ‘best young talent’ at this year’s Port Fairy Music Festival, Michelle Meehan will perform with her all-girl family band at the Ocean Grove Hotel this month. Michelle is the daughter of Ocean Grove singersongwriter, Jill Meehan, who is a regular at open mic sessions at Bardeli, the Ocean Grove Hotel (also known as the Collendina Hotel) and Geelong Folk Club at Irish Murphy’s. Jill, Michelle and Jill’s sister, Joy, will perform together as talented trio, Chandra as the headline act at the Ocean Grove Hotel on July 24, sharing their unique hybrid folk and contemporary blues style to the local live music hub. “We do some traditional covers but we really focus on original music. We are all singer songwriters in our own right,” Jill said. “Michelle lives in Melbourne and Joy is in Bendigo and

we just meet wherever we are playing. “Michelle also performs with her Celtic band Shanachie, which played at Port Fairy and Portarlington’s National Celtic Festival this year.” Coming from a musical family, Jill said basing herself in Ocean Grove was great inspiration for her writing and performing. “I’ve been performing professionally for about 30 years and I’ve only been in Ocean Grove for a year but the community spirit down here is really nice,” she said. “The open mics are a really good networking tool and you get to meet other like-minded musicians.” For more information on the Ocean Grove Hotel’s open mic nights and Chandra’s performance on July 24, phone 5255 1122. Chandra will also play the Geelong Folk Club on August 29 and for more details visit www.myspace.com/ jillmeehan or www.myspace.com/chandratrio

Locals lead committee

BARWON Coast committee of management members are now all local residents, following two new appointments and two reappointments. Barwon Coast’s unique appointment process involves the eight committee members serving three-year terms which are staggered, so that only four member positions are up for re-appointment every 18 months. Barwon Coast general manager, Bob Jordan, said two members – Mark Edmonds and Tim Goddard – had been reappointed, while two vacancies had been created by a previous resignation and the retirement of Steve Craddock, who did not seek reappointment. “We now have two new members, Paul Williamson and Kate Wynn, who started on July 1 and join Mark

Edmonds, Tim Goddard, and the four continuing members, Danny Keating, John Lesser, Mark Rodrigue and Susan Tunnell-Jones,” Jordan said. Edmonds has been appointed committee chairman and while it is not a prerequisite for nomination, all current members are residents of Ocean Grove or Barwon Heads. Jordan said the first challenge for the committee would be to develop a new three-year coastal management plan, addressing a range of issues for the area, including climate change and natural resource management. He said he was looking forward to working with the new board and thanked those who have served Barwon Coast in the past.

Making an instant impression BY ALISON MARTIN STONE & Grain – the new Ocean Grove store that inspires you to “change the way your house feels� – has made a real impression on new customers. Owner of the innovative gifts, homeware and furniture store, Andrea Renwick (pictured), said the feedback from local residents and holiday visitors had been fantastic. “I’ve had a lot of people come in, even just to browse, and say Ocean Grove needed this store, which is really positive,� she said. “I’m getting a great response to the casual, coastal style of homeware we stock at Stone & Grain and the French provincial furniture by Melbourne-based stockists, Town & Country Style and Perfect Pieces, has been popular. “But the surprise has been that our biggest seller since we opened has been kids and baby toys; there is obviously a

real demand for quality toys and baby gifts,.â€? Stone & Grain also has an amazing collection of the latest designer dĂŠcor homeware that make great gifts. “I love decorating and reinventing my own home; it really changes the atmosphere and the way it feels,â€? Renwick said. “I’ve kept in mind what people on the coast like to have in their homes and I’m always happy to help with ideas and coordinating the look they want to achieve.â€? The name Stone & Grain was conceived over a few glasses of red wine – like many of the best ideas – to represent the natural fibres, wood and earthy flavour of much of the store’s stock, while bringing together the inside-outside concept of today’s living. Discover the special decorating touches that Stone & Grain can bring to your home – you’ll find the new store at Shop 5, Ocean Plaza, or phone 5256 2228.

Debate remains a possibility

FEDERAL Member for Corangamite, Darren Cheeseman, has raised hopes for another political debate with Sarah Henderson prior to the federal election. Speaking in response to repeated calls from the Liberal candidate to go head-to-head in a public forum, Cheeseman said a debate is something that could be arranged closer to the election. Cheeseman said his current priority was to get on with the job at hand. “I have already debated the Liberal candidate. I am getting on with the job I was elected to do, which is to remove the Liberals WorkChoices laws and work hard on delivering all the local infrastructure

projects rather than engaging in an ongoing series of talk fests,” he said. In the lead-up to the election, Henderson said she was disappointed that Cheeseman appeared to be dismissing her requests. “Recently I called on Mr Cheeseman to participate in two major pre-election public debates – one in the Geelong region and one in Colac,” she said. “Given we are now so close to the calling of the federal election, Mr Cheeseman’s attempts to fob me off are most disappointing. “The electors of Corangamite are entitled to be given this very important opportunity.” Henderson emphasised the importance of these

debates to the democratic process and also revealed that Cheeseman has declined to participate in a traditional live radio debate on Pulse Radio Geelong with herself and other federal candidates. “What is Mr Cheeseman afraid of?” she asked. “His job is to represent the people of Corangamite and when the crunch comes it appears he can’t stand up and be counted. In politics, you need to do a lot more than hide behind press releases and photo opportunities. “Each week in the lead up to the Federal Election, I will continue to challenge Mr Cheeseman to participate in these debates which are, after all, an important part of the democratic process.”

Cheeseman the early favourite SPORTINGBET Australia has opened betting markets on the battle for the seat of Corangamite, with Darren Cheeseman installed the early favourite. Currently one of the most marginal seats on offer, Corangamite’s incumbent member has been quoted at $1.75 favourite, with Liberal candidate, Sarah Henderson, quoted at $2.05. Sportingbet Australia chief executive officer, Michael Sullivan, said that while Labor is expected to hold the seat, almost anything could happen in the lead up to election day. “We’ve got Darren Cheeseman as favourite at $1.75 to hold Corangamite, but we expect punters to flood in and tell us whether we’ve got it right,” Sullivan said. Sullivan said that the tight opening market in Corangamite reflects an election contest that would have been unimaginable 12 months ago. “Tony Abbott’s opposition has shortened dramatically over recent months as the Labor Government has had a rough year, but with Julia Gillard in the saddle the Coalition finds itself back out at $3.75 with Labor at $1.25,” Sullivan said. Corangamite is just one of the 40 hotlycontested seats that political punters are able to bet on, as Labor looks to fight off a tough challenge from the Coalition.

New store fills the void BY ALISON MARTIN AN INSPIRING haven for patchworkers, quilters and lovers of needlecraft opens today in Geelong, providing the finest collection of supplies not previously available in the region. The doors of Jiddi’s Patch in Moorabool Street will open to offer a unique range of quality fabrics and all the accessories, for all skill levels from beginner to the most experienced textile creator. Jiddi’s Patch has been established by Jill Dunbar, a self-confessed patchwork addict of 10 years who understands the passion for needlecraft and the limitations when trying to find supplies around Geelong and the Bellarine. “I’d worked in the health industry for 43 years, so this is a new career for me,” Dunbar said. “People had told me not to start patchwork until I retired because it becomes an obsession, but I went from needlecraft to patchwork and now I’ve opened a business! “I realised there was a need for quality supplies; there was nothing for

the discerning patchworker in central Geelong. “There will be a range of other fabrics as well; I will be stocking specialty all-cotton children’s fabrics for those who want to sew but haven’t been able to find what they needed locally. “I also want to create a social hub for patchworkers. A lot of people are so busy when they are working that when they retire they don’t have a social network, so Jiddi’s Patch will be a place to connect people with the same interest – it will have a therapeutic benefit, too. “There will be workshops and classes on weekends and evenings to suit with people’s schedules and everyone can share their skills and creativeness.” Jiddi’s Patch is open Tuesday to Sunday this week only, with an opening special of 20 per cent off all fabric. Normal trading hours will be Tuesday to Saturday or Sundays by appointment. See the new store at 192 Moorabool Street and for information on classes and workshops, phone 5298 2208.

Cameron’s Welsh adventure No more junior library fines INDENTED Head writer, director and performer, Margaret Cameron, is currently in Wales on a creative venture to take her talents to the world. Cameron is one of 24 artists and arts organisations to share in $272,478 in State Government grants to showcase their talents to international audiences join a cultural exchange. She has received $2,500 for a three-week creative collaboration on a new multimedia work, The Threat of Silence, in Aberystwyth, Wales. Cameron’s previous, original works are described somewhere between performance art and theatre and have been produced by many theatre and dance companies in Australia, the United States and Europe. Arts Minister, Peter Batchelor, said the arts

funding aimed to support a diverse group of established and emerging Victorian artists and organisations to travel to key markets across Asia, Europe and Latin and North America over the next 12 months. “International touring and travel helps our artists to generate additional revenue and expand their audience base,” he said. “Crucially it connects them with their international contemporaries, as well as overseas presenters and venues, paving the way for future engagements and collaborations both here and abroad.” He said previous recipients of internal arts grants had helped cement Victoria’s reputation as Australia’s hub of creativity.

CHILDREN borrowing books from libraries on the Bellarine will no longer face overdue fines. Geelong Regional Library Corporation has revised its service fees, with the new charges effective now. It’s especially good news for parents of young borrowers, because there are no more fines for children’s and young adult items, regardless of whether they have been borrowed on a junior membership card or an adult membership card. Other changes include a reduction in overdue charges for DVDs or videos and adjustments to meeting room fees. Geelong Regional Library chairperson, Rod

Macdonald, said the new fees and charges system would ensure a fair service was provided to all library users. “After assessing the previous fees and charges system we found a number of areas where we could reduce costs for library users while still maintaining a high level of service,” he said. “We aim to offer a helpful, friendly and fair service to everyone who comes into our libraries; and the new fees and charges structure reflects that goal.” For a full listing of the new service fees, go to www.geelonglibraries.vic.gov.au or visit your local library branch or mobile service.

Mitchell’s major appointment BOROUGH of Queenscliffe chief executive officer, Lenny Jenner, has congratulated councillor David Mitchell on his appointment as president of the Association of Bayside Municipalities for 2010-2011. Mitchell said his objectives for the 12 months ahead included establishing working groups to tackle the key issues facing the 10 ABM member councils. “I will convene a forum next February involving the mayors of the 10 bayside municipalities to discuss the outcomes of the working groups,” Mitchell said. “One working group will address planning for climate

change. Given the multitude of authorities around the bay we need to better co-ordinate the care and management of our bay. “We also need to assemble reliable statistics and data of who uses the bay. We are in the process of putting the working groups together and they will then have the next six months before the forum.” Borough of Queenscliffe chief executive officer, Lenny Jenner, congratulates councillor David Mitchell.

Robots lead to trip of a lifetime

Jake, Ben and Brian Thomas have returned from Singapore, where the Bellarine Secondary College students excelled in the RoboCup Junior World Titles.

JAKE and Ben Thomas have returned from the RoboCup Junior World Titles in Singapore in time for the RoboCup junior regional competition in Geelong this Saturday. The brothers did not come home with any hardware to add to their robots in their suitcases, but acquitted themselves well in a very high standard competition. The two Bellarine Secondary College robotics students were extremely competitive in the high standard international event and only missed out on the semi finals by a single game after three days of competition. BSC teacher, Brian Thomas, who escorted his sons on the venture, said they were plagued by mechanical problems, mostly created by a fibrous carpet surface field, not experienced in Australia.

“They also had to contend with schools that had competed up to five years in a row, using robots that had evolved from students from previous years,” he said. “As a consequence the standard of competition was extraordinarily high – above what university students are expected to produce in their final year. “The major highlight for the boys was the size of the event, which covered the area of a football field, and 2,000 students from 40 different countries having fun and communicating with each other for four days. “Not bad for a tournament that was created in a classroom at Bellarine Secondary College. Added to this was the university competition, exhibiting the latest and greatest in technology, a floor below. “Jake and Ben have had an experience of their lives, through the

support of RoboCup Junior sponsors, Alcoa locally and Modern Teaching Aids nationally. “They now look forward to taking their experience to the Geelong Regional Competition, the State finals at Scienceworks, followed by the Australian Open in Canberra in September.” The regional competition will be held at Kardinia International College on Saturday. Members of the public are invited to see the fun and learning, while students are participating in RoboCup Junior. The tournament starts at 11am, with finals starting 2pm. “Alcoa has supported this event since its inception and has provided opportunities for hundreds of local students to progress to national and international level such as Jake and Ben have experienced,” Thomas said.

Tuesday 13 July 2010

Interest rate break welcomed WITH consumer and business spending, building approvals, housing finance and retail sales showing lacklustre results, Australia’s largest independently-owned mortgage broker, Mortgage Choice, said the Reserve Bank has made the right decision in keeping the cash rate at 4.5%. Existing and potential property owners will be elated to hear the cash rate is on hold for a second month, as they reassess their budget for the new financial year. “A ‘wait and see’ approach from the RBA is what borrowers need at the moment,� said Mortgage Choice senior corporate affairs manager, Kristy

Sheppard. “Interest rates stood at an emergency setting over much of 2009, but they rose very quickly from then on and caught many people unaware. “We have not yet seen the full effect of the six official rate rises from October to May, or the effect of further mortgage rate increases by a number of lenders. “Although employment is solid, our resource sector is strong and many property markets are moving at a healthy pace, consumer spending is subdued and sentiment has dropped, just as housing finance demand has over several

consecutive months now. “We’re also seeing a slowing of housing prices and global economic uncertainty continuing. “Slowed housing finance demand and prices is a good thing, however, for those looking to enter the market. Less competition means many regions have become buyers’ markets. “Anyone with a healthy deposit or equity, a steady income, few debts, a good credit record and solid employment, may find they are well placed to build upon their financial portfolio now by buying property.

Deposit saving gets harder HOUSING affordability has continued to worsen over the past year, with first home buyers in Victoria needing 4.5 years to save for a house deposit, up from 3.5 years. The second annual Bankwest First Time Home Buyer Report also found thousands of young Victorian residents have been forced to rent or live at home with their parents for an extra year as they struggle to pull together a house deposit. The research shows a first time buyer couple in Victoria needs to raise an $86,800 deposit to purchase the median house, and $80,500 to buy a median unit. There are six Local Government Areas (LGAs) in Victoria where it would take a first home buyer couple on average earnings a

decade or more to save a house deposit. In Melbourne, a first time buyer couple would need to save for 5.7 years for a house deposit, the second longest period of any capital city, translating into a deposit of $112,500. This is up from 4.4 years savings in March 2009. When it comes to units, the time needed to secure a down-payment is 4.3 years – the longest of any capital city. Bankwest Retail Chief Executive, Vittoria Shortt said this was the stark reality of a strong Australian property sector. “Increasingly we are seeing an entrenched two-speed market emerging with property owners on one side and a growing army of first home buyers seemingly locked out on the other,� Shortt said.

The great fiddle

THE CHANGES that accompanied the rebranding of the Resource Super Profits Tax (RSPT) to the Resource Rent Tax (RRT) were initially said to have only cost $1.5billion in revenue, with the new tax raising $10.5b instead of $12b. At a hearing of the Senate Estimates Committee, however, Treasury Secretary Ken Henry admitted that the $10.5b figure was arrived at after increasing the projected prices for coal and iron ore. Amazingly, Treasury did not do the maths to indicate how much above $12b the first proposal would have been if using the newly arrived at commodity prices. Goldman Sachs JB Were attempted to do the figures and estimated the changes will cost $3b over the first two years and a total of $39b out to 2020. In reality, as opined by Terry McCrann in the Weekend Australian, the revenue raised by this tax is dependent entirely on

whether China maintains current growth. Higher commodity prices are, in fact, not just reliant on China continuing to grow but on it continuing to boom. As history shows, however, commodity price booms are always followed by busts. High prices bring about the opening of new mines, and consequently increased supply as mining companies chase the bonanza, as supply picks up, prices drop. So, if the current cycle turns out to be a normal one and prices eventually fall, so will the revenue from the RRT. The projected budget surplus will disappear, leaving the accumulated budgetary dept. As McCrann says, perhaps the greatest irony is that dependence on Chinese growth means Australia is also dependent on China increasing its CO2 emissions, while at the same time we are fiddling at the edges with our own domestic green house gases at great economic cost.

Slow trekking for people of all ages

TREK ITINERARY MUKTINATH – October/November 2010

ancient crumbling village of Kagbeni, one of my personal favourites. If we want to we may be able to walk into the previously forbidden kingdom of Upper Mustang to visit Thiri village. From there we will take sturdy ponies next day to climb the steep hill to Muktinath at 3,800 metres. With its tiny old gompa housing the mysterious ‘flame and water in the rock’ and glimpses of the famous Thorong La pass we will spend the night and then walk the easy trail back down to Kagbeni next day. The trek concludes with a three-hour flat walk back to Jomsom for a spectacular flight the following morning that will take us back to where we started in just 25 minutes.

The view from Muktinath OUR planned start date is in Kathmandu on 30 October. Spending two nights in Kathmandu, we will explore some of this city’s magnificent treasures. Our accommodation is an easy 20-minute stroll to the World Heritage-listed area of Boudhanath, for the evening prayer circuit. We will also spend a day ‘downtown’, shopping for gear, exploring the back alleys of the old bazaars and enjoying a pleasant meal while we get to know each other. We will then travel by bus (a good one) down to Pokhara. This is a really scenic ride with a nice lunch on the way. We will spend two nights in Pokhara in a small, family-run lodge while we obtain our trek permits, shop for last-minute trek provisions and connect up with porters. Our trek starts just a couple of hours from Pokhara and will take about 14 days, flying down from Jomsom on day 15 of the itinerary. We will first climb up to Ghorepani. Most people

do this in two days, some do it in one. We will take three days just to break you in gently. After the stunning mountain views at Ghorepani and perhaps an early morning climb of Pun Hill, we will head off down the easy trail to Sikha. We will take two days to reach Tatopani and then stay there for two nights. You can try the hot springs, do a little washing and generally catch up with yourself.

The cost will be $2450 AUD ex Kathmandu and includes everything you can think of. You will be met at the airport, all your accommodation and every meal is included. Your personal porter (including his proper registration and insurance), internal flights, bus tickets, trekking permits

If this sounds like something you would want to do please get in touch at teresadb@hotmail.com and I will get back to you in person if you give me your phone number. We like to take a maximum of ten people. A few things to remember: You can leave luggage at Kathmandu and Pokhara. You don’t have to take all your ‘city clothes’ with you on trek. They could even be washed for your return! You will be well briefed before the trek. I will help check your gear and let you know if you are under or overequipped. If the itinerary sounds a bit daunting remember I’ve had two people, Don and Irene, both 82 years of age complete this trek and lots of people well into their seventies. Take heart!

The next day is a hard one up to Ghasa but we will take it slowly – there is a jeep on the other side of the valley if anyone feels they can’t do this section. After Ghasa it is still uphill but not so steeply to Kalopani for more amazing views of Dhaulagiri and Annapurna I, two of the world’s 10 highest mountains. The following days are extremely flat so it’s very easy trekking. After a few days up the Kali Gandaki valley with its wide open river bed full of interesting rocks and, if you are lucky, saligram fossils, we reach the

Overview Small groups – Personally escorted No camping – Lodges every night Shorter days – Achievable itineraries Lots of tea-breaks – Look at the scenery! Longer lunches – Good wholesome food Personal porters – You are in good hands Good lodges – Twin rooms, warm stoves Decent hotels in town – Monastery guesthouse Time to linger – Check out your surroundings Sightseeing and shopping not forgotten! All-inclusive prices ex Kathmandu surfcoasttimes.com.au

We will recover in Pokhara for a couple of days and then return to Kathmandu for another couple of days sightseeing, shopping or just ‘recovering’ ready for the trip home.

and entry fees to everything we visit. I don’t cover alcohol (who does?) and you may want to tip your porter generously. Your personal expenses should be minimal. However, the temptations of shopping in Nepal are great. Be warned! Trekking gear, art and handicrafts, casual clothing and jewellery – all very reasonably priced.

Concerns not addressed

The opinions expressed here are the opinions of the letter writers exclusively and do not express the views of the Editor or Surf Coast News Pty Ltd. Letters to the Editor may be submitted to the Surf Coast Times and Bellarine Times by writing to P.O. Box 714, Torquay, Vic, 3228 or email: editor@surfcoasttimes.com.au or fax: 5264 8413. Your letters should not exceed 250 words. Please provide your name, address and telephone number, which may be withheld from publication on request. As publication space is limited we may not be able to publish all letters received. We also reserve the right to edit letters that we publish.

Dear Editor, Mr Davies, in his defence of the activities of the Surf Coast Shire council, says much about the finances, little about other matters that really concern residents and ratepayers: I cannot list the many failings of council, but herewith a few, not necessarily the worst. 1. After just over a decade here, I find I am like Diogenes with his lamp in daylight seeking anyone who has a good word for council. Even their apparent cave-in to protest over the Spring Creek development has shown to be of no worth as the ‘revised’ plan for much of the area will, of course, go ahead. 2. The grandiose Civic Centre (which I bet will finish up costing at least 20% more than the budgeted figure) will, as far the major part of it, be used by many more citizens of Armstrong Creek than of this shire. This is the wrong development in the wrong place – and at the wrong time. 3. As Mr Davies claims, ratable income, since 2001, has increased by 300%. This is a figure not hard to achieve when rates have risen by 100% and the population by 150%. If our rates are not the highest in the state, they are the runners-up in this undesirable Grand Prix d’Ineptitude. 4. No one should have been surprised by the farcical toilets episode in the IGA car park in Torquay. It was, and is, just another episode in a litany of such design and supervisory incompetence which typifies council. Having said that, congratulations must go to council for its stand against poker machines in Jan Juc. Well done!

Time for action Dear Editor, I don’t know who is responsible for the Anglesea shopping centre car park but action needs to be considered before there is a serious accident and someone gets injured. Minor collisions are a common occurrence because many motorists do not show any respect for other motorists. Many of the people who park there are elderly and we need to give them extra consideration. For some people, it isn’t easy reversing out of those parking spots, especially the elderly, and it is frustrating when you see someone who has carefully managed to get three quarters of the way out of a spot and motorists continue to drive past, quite often at more than the 20kph limit. I know the law says that people reversing out give way to through traffic but in this shopping centre, I’d like to see a big sign at the approach area instructing motorists to be courteous and give way to people reversing out of a parking spot. John Cummings Anglesea

Towering troubles Dear Editor, In December 2009 I purchased my property in Forrest. At no time did I receive written notification of plans to build a 45-metre high telecommunications

surfcoasttimes.com.au

tower directly opposite me. Regardless of whether there is scientific proof that these towers emit hazardous radiation – the perception is they do! I am considering establishing a health-related business and this will negatively affect my business plan, as well as my quality of life. Health implications aside, the ugliness of this tower will deface the ‘Gateway to the Otways’. Colac Otway Shire Council chief executive officer, Rob Small, indicated that council had legally followed the statutory guidelines concerning notification to adjacent dwellings, but that there is “something for council to learn��� given the community’s response. He is right – it was shoddy and questionable. The process of consultation needs a major rethink – it has failed dismally or otherwise there wouldn’t be a picket line out the front of my house. Amanda Perry-Bolt Forrest

Woolies jobs continue to be safe Dear Editor, On behalf of Woolworths Torquay I just wanted to respond to the comments made by Peter Brighton in the letters page of the Surf Coast Times on July 6, regarding our self-serve checkouts. It’s certainly concerning that Mr Brighton felt his experience at Woolworths Torquay was not up to the store’s usual standard. However, we must refute any suggestions the instillation of self-serve checkouts will lead to any lessening of job opportunities in-store. Woolworths Torquay installed six self-serve checkouts alongside manned checkouts over a year ago. Overseas, around a quarter of customers choose to use self-serve checkouts where they are available. However, across Australia, self-serve checkouts have been embraced by customers with 40 per cent choosing to use them in Torquay. Many customers tell us that once they’ve got the hang of them, they have found the self-serve checkouts an efficient and convenient way to pay for their groceries. As for staff numbers, I want to reassure Mr Brighton that the rollout of self-serve checkouts has not and will not lead to any job cuts at Woolies. The new tills only replace a couple of manned tills and, besides, we need staff to help customers on selfserve checking signatures and answering queries. In fact, last year, Woolworths took on thousands of new staff across Australia. Rather, the introduction of self-serve checkouts is about giving customers extra choice in how to pay for their shopping and a new reason to shop at Woolies.

Community is the big loser Dear Editor, Last August, I hired the Lorne Community Bus for my daughter’s 10th birthday to travel to Melbourne

to visit Luna Park with her nine friends. It was a fantastic day enhanced by us all travelling together, with the kids singing and playing games on our journey. Sadly this ‘community bus’ is not available for family events like mine or groups of friends to enjoy an outing together, as the Surf Coast Shire say we no longer fit the criteria of a ‘community group’. On attending the Surf Coast Mobile Library on our weekly visit after school at 3.30pm on June 21, we were informed that our Lorne service access was to be cut from 10am-4.30pm to 10am-1pm, effective from July 5. I am sorry – did I miss a community consultation? Like our bus, are we just meant to sit back and say that’s okay with us? You might not be a user of the library today, but once access is taken away it is gone forever. The shire has given our library service a reprieve until August 2 while they will review the change of hours. I urge all users and potential users of the mobile service of Lorne to voice their objections to the Surf Coast Shire for the proposed loss of yet another Lorne community service. The telephone number of the Surf Coast Mobile Library is 5272 6010. Jenny McMenomy Lorne

Minister’s decision leaves a lot to be desired Dear Editor, I am appalled at the State Planning Minister’s recent decision to increase the Torquay boundary to one kilometre west of Duffields Road and feel there are glaring questions that need to be asked concerning this decision. What and who initiated this decision? What was the shire’s role in this? Were any of the developers that have an interest in this area of land among those that have made political donations to the State Labor Party? If the shire had a role in this, of which there are suggestions, (See the Independent, Friday, June 25) why has it blatently gone against the wishes of the local community that were so strongly expressed during the Save Spring Creek campaign? Furthermore, how does the shire justify its outrageous back-flip on this and its current approach of casually and paternalistically trying to whitewash the situation by claiming the community can be involved in the process from now on? How can the community believe anything the Shire has to say on contentious planning/development matters? I feel there are serious issues of breach of trust at play here. If the community feels that it has been ‘sold down the river’ we can certainly send a strong protest to Minister Madden and the State Government by voting for non ALP candidates at the upcoming state elections. But I am unsure what we can do to stop the shire making planning/development decisions that mainly benefit developers and are detrimental to the well being of the local community.

Coalition commits $1.5b for mental health

MENTAL health professionals and services in Corangamite will get greater support from a major expansion of frontline healthcare services under a Coalition Government, announced Liberal candidate for Corangamite, Sarah Henderson. In particular, young people suffering from a mental disorder will have greater access to services, Henderson said in making the announcement last week. The Coalition’s Real Action Plan for Better Mental Health will provide $1.5billion towards an expansion of frontline mental health services to cut the burden of mental health disorders within Australia. In 2006, the former Coalition Government made the single biggest investment in mental health by any government in Australian history when $1.9billion was committed over a five-year period for services for people with mental illness, their families and carers. The Coalition’s Real Action Plan for Better Mental Health will build on this by providing $1.5billion towards 20 new Early Psychosis Intervention Centres, 60 additional youth headspace sites and 800 acute and sub-acute early intervention beds. headspace is Australia’s National Youth Mental Health Foundation. The number of headspace sites will increase from the current 30 to 90. The new Early Psychosis Intervention Centres will be based on the ‘EPPIC’ model pioneered in Australia by current Australian of the Year, Professor Patrick McGorry. There is currently only one such centre in Australia, located in metropolitan Melbourne. The Early Psychosis Intervention Centres and headspace sites will be located in metropolitan and regional areas across Australia and mobile services will be provided in each state and territory. The provision of 800 acute and sub-acute beds

linked to the Early Psychosis Intervention Centres will take pressure off the nation’s public hospitals and emergency departments and provide better care to the patient in the community. Henderson said the new spending in mental health would help take pressure off hospitals and emergency departments in Geelong and Colac. “It will also provide more treatment facilities in community settings to the benefit of those suffering with a mental illness,� Henderson said. She also said the Coalition’s commitments would target younger people suffering with mental disorders. “Mental illness often first manifests itself in teenagers or young adults and early intervention is critical to help these young people deal with their disorder and regain health,� Henderson said. “Labor talked about mental health, but took no action. The Coalition has a strong track record and will deliver necessary services to those suffering a mental illness.�

Sarah Henderson last week announced the Coalition’s Real Action Plan for Better Mental Health services and care.

Raising awareness on diabetes THIS week is National Diabetes Week – a time aimed at highlighting the serious complications of diabetes. Tunstall Healthcare, the world’s leading provider of telehealthcare supports thousands of people across Australia and around the world living with diabetes. To assist people living with this serious condition, Tunstall is currently promoting telehealthcare to government, medical professionals and medical providers around Australia, to show them the benefit of using telehealth to manage conditions like this. Telehealth allows a patient to manage their condition from home, reducing GP visits and decreasing the need for emergency hospital visits. Telehealth requires the patient to take their vital signs, such as heart rate, weight and blood sugar levels, and answer a series of health related questions on a regular basis. Using the telephone line, these details are transmitted to a monitoring centre where the data is compared to the patient’s ‘normal’ readings. Abnormal readings are flagged for follow up and passed onto the patient’s doctor. The doctor can then advise the patient what action needs to be taken, such adjustment to medication. Telehealth provides the patient’s doctor with ongoing information so that a decline in health can be identified and managed well before it reaches crisis point. Internationally, telehealth has been widely tested and trialled, showing an outstanding ability to improve patient quality of life. To find out more, phone 1800 611 528 or visit www.tunstallhealthcare.com.au

City launches traffic light programme A NEW healthy eating programme has been launched at the Geelong Arena. The City of Greater Geelong initiative was launched recently by councillor Kylie Fisher and basketball players from the Geelong Supercats, Dominic Friend and J’Nathan Bullock. The Arena Cafe is now the first City of Greater Geelong owned sports venue to adopt the new healthy choices traffic light colour-coded system. Foods are categorised as: Healthiest Choice (green), OK Choice (amber) and Less Healthy Choice (red). People are encouraged to aim for 40 per cent of their diet to be made up of foods considered Healthiest Choice, 40 per cent OK Choice and 20 per cent Less Healthy Choice. The food offered at the Arena will be clearly identified in these categories and will match the recommended ratios for each category. “This is a simple and straight forward system to let people know which foods are better for them. It’s a great way to educate kids on healthy food choices,â€? said Fisher, who holds the Community Development portfolio. “Plus it means that 80 per cent of the food offered at the Arena Cafe will be from the Healthiest Choice and OK Choice categories. So it’s also about creating more nutritious options for people. “Soon we’ll be rolling out the healthy choices traffic light system across all of the City’s sports venues.â€? The healthy choices traffic light system launch coincided with the launch of the City’s Municipal Public Health and Wellbeing Plan. The Plan details the ways in which the City can contribute to creating a more healthy and sustainable environment for residents. It identifies a number of public health priorities including: • Safe and healthy environment

• Preparing for population change • Better access to services • Community strengthening, social inclusion and mental-wellbeing • Physical activity and healthy eating, and • Healthy transport. “People’s social, economic and physical environment has a huge impact on their health and well being. And it’s our role to provide our residents with the best possible environment for happy and healthy lifestyles,â€? Fisher said.

She said the implementation of the plan would involve a collaborative approach. “To achieve the goals of the Health and Wellbeing Plan we’ll work with a range of groups including other levels of government, agencies and community groups,� she said. The Health and Wellbeing Plan will be reviewed and updated on an annual basis with the view of creating a new plan during 2013. For a copy of the plan, visit www.geelongaustralia. com.au or phone the City on 5272 5272.

BUILD A BETTER HOME WITH RYLOCK BUILDING a new home on Victoria’s west coast may not be as simple as it seems, according to Rylock Windows’ Murray Riccardi. “While most building products on the market are probably suitable for homes elsewhere in Victoria, special care must be exercised in the selection for new homes along the coast from Torquay to Warrnambool and beyond,� Riccardi (pictured) said. “This is true of materials for roofing, decks and balconies, and especially true for windows and doors. “What might be fine in suburbia, can be totally inadequate on Victoria’s coastal regions, and we are not just referring to the strong winds that come howling across the Southern Ocean all the way from the Antarctic. “Framing components of windows and doors need to be much heavier, weather seals need to be superior, and to combat the effects of the salt laden air, it is important that stainless steel be extensively used. “This is why, at Rylock, we use heavy gauge stainless steel screws to assemble all of the products, as without them rusting and corrosion will cause joints to open up, allowing water to enter and rattling to occur even in light winds. “Even worse, sooner or later the windows could fail and be blown in.� Riccardi said the design of windows at Rylock includes the use of stainless steel components, which helps to further strengthen their products. “Having designed windows that will not suffer this fate, we take it even further, and for operating components stainless steel is extensively used,� he

said. “Chainwinder ‘chains’, double action sash stays, and many other parts are also stainless steel. “In fire prone areas, which are unfortunately prolific along our lovely coastline, stainless steel meshed flydoors and insect screens are also available. Unlike some other brands, where vinyl is used for for weathersealing, Rylock uses co-extruded synthetic rubber weather seals – and unlike vinyl, which goes hard and also shrinks, thus losing its sealing ability, the Rylock alternative retains its

compression qualities for the life of the building, and there are two at each contact point. “When woven weather seals are required, such as sliding windows and sliding doors, Rylock again uses a top-quality product, and instead of one, at least two are used, not only creating a better seal, but ensuring there is no metal to metal contact,� Riccardi said. “Having taken care of draughts with superior weatherseals, the elements are further kept outside by the insulating effect of double glazing which, due to Rylock’s clever frame and sash designs, costs surprisingly little more than single glazed. “The first time you arrive in the evening in mid winter and feel how cosy the home is before you turn on the heating on, you’ll be sold. “What happens with double glazing is that the windows allow heat from the low angle sun to come into the home, but not let it go straight back out when the sun goes down. “And, the benefit goes on through the summer, keeping high ambient temperatures outside, so you arrive to a much cooler home than you would if the windows were single glazed. “Rylock windows and doors will cost you a little more, but the benefits go on and on. In fact, many customers tell us their Rylock windows were the best money they have ever spent, and some have said they are the only parts of the home that are up to scratch, and they haven‘t been disappointed with.� Riccardi and the team at Rylock can be contacted on 5278 8711, and they are located a stone’s throw from the Ford Factory at 61 Morgan Street, North Geelong.

GREEN TIPS

REDUCE greenhouse gas pollution by making simple changes at home. Studies show that the way we go about our everyday activities accounts for up to 40 per cent of energy consumption at home. Easy ways to make a difference: • Turn down the heat when you’re sleeping or away from home • Put on more clothing before adjusting a thermostat • Add extra insulation to walls or ceilings • Source your electricity through an approved GreenPower programme – your current supplier might be greener than you think or you may want to shop around.

REDUCE YOUR ENERGY BILL OVER the years, and especially in more recent times, there has been a growing interest in technologies that reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Since the 1970s, Quantum has been dedicated to manufacturing the highest quality products with a strong focus on technical innovation and energy efficiency, making it possible for Australian households of any size to use a sustainable source of energy to produce hot water. Quantum Heat Pump Quantum heat pumps don’t require sunshine to operate nor do they require large roof panels, in fact the units look very much like traditional hot water heaters. Day or night, rain, hail or shine,

they produce hot water, but with efficiencies around 300% more than traditional hot water systems. In dollar terms, households are offered the opportunity to slash not only their greenhouse gas emissions, but they can also expect to enjoy up to a massive 75% reduction in their hot water running costs when compared to traditional hot water systems. Heating hot water accounts for around 40% of your energy bill. By installing a Quantum heat pump hot water system, you’re able to reduce that by 75%. Quantum is able to tailor a specific hot water system that best suits your household needs. For more information, phone 1800 383 388.

SCHOOLS throughout the Surf Coast and Bellarine are being urged to apply for more than $5million in funding which is available through the Schools First national awards programme. Schools First is brought to life by the National Australia Bank in partnership with The Foundation for Young Australians (FYA) and Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER). “Schools First is committed to rewarding and acknowledging schools that are working in partnership with their local community to improve the lives of young people,” said Jodi Cryan, Head of Schools First, NAB. “This year we have 108 awards ranging from $25,000 to $500,000 available for schools across Australia, and we strongly encourage schools to go to the Schools First website and look into applying before applications close on Friday, July 30.” In its second year, Schools First is open to all primary and secondary schools across Australia. This programme is based on research conducted by ACER that indicates a student’s education is improved when they are engaged with their community. The aim of Schools First is to reward and

recognise schools that improve student outcomes by working in partnership with their community. A community partner may include small, medium or large business, local government, not-for-profit organisations, health organisations, sporting clubs – just to name a few. There are two categories of awards to which schools can apply – Impact Awards and Seed Funding Awards. Forty Seed Funding Awards are available at $25,000 for schools that are in the early stages of a community partnership that is yet to demonstrate improved student outcomes. An additional 68 Local Impact Awards valued at $50,000 each are allocated to schools that can demonstrate they have improved outcomes for their students through their community partnership. One winner in each state and territory will then go on to receive an additional $50,000 as their respective State Winner. One state winner will then become the National Award winner, receiving an additional $400,000. Applications are open to all schools throughout the country until July 30 via the website at www.schoolsfirst.edu.au

Barry Plant Torquay tops for customer service

By Enzo Raimondo, CEO REIV

CUSTOMER service and satisfaction is high on the list of priorities for every business, but for Barry Plant Torquay it has become an integral part of their success. The team at Torquay recently recorded a score 92.50% in the 2010 Australian Achiever Awards for Victoria’s real estate services category. Now in their 13th year, the awards are an independent, unbiased award system based on assessment ratings from a business’s own customers – an indication of a well-run business where satisfied customers are a sign that a business is healthy, worthy of praise and increased custom. The award system focuses on seven criteria, each scored separately. The criteria include: • Time-rated service • Addressing client needs • Care and attention • Value

Buyer’s agents OVER the past decade there has been an increase in the number of qualified real estate agents who have turned their hand to working for buyers. Over this time many buyers have found it very helpful to use the services of a buyer’s agent; after all, vendors always have an estate agent acting on their behalf, handling inquiries, marketing the property and ensuring the best possible sale price. Buyer’s agents can be a good idea for the simple fact that most people don’t buy a home on a regular basis. As a result, they are not experienced in the market, don’t immediately know the prevailing market conditions in the area in which they want to buy, nor do they have the benefit of the day-to-day monitoring of a local area that a buyer’s agent does. A buyer’s agent can take the emotion out of the auction and negotiation process for you. They attend, bid at and engage in auctions every week and know when and how to bid to help deliver the best result. They will even tell you that sometimes the best result may be to not buy a home at a particular price because there is a more suitable property around the corner. An REIV member buyer’s agent can bring that experience to the process by using their professionalism to deliver a better result for you. In the same way that you would interview a few estate agents before engaging one to sell your home, you should interview a few buyer’s agents. This enables you to compare their services, knowledge and fees and find the right buyer’s agent for you. A list of REIV Member buyer’s agents can be found at www.reiv.com.au/agency_search/

• Attitude • Communication, and • Overall perception. The criteria are rated individually in percentage terms and the final score is an amalgam of these. Anything above 80% overall is regarded as exceptional and reflects outstanding customer service. Barry Plant Torquay managing director, Glenn Hardman (pictured), said the overall score underlined the team’s commitment to customer service. Some of the comments from Barry Plant Torquay customers have included: “We have used Barry Plant Torquay’s services for almost two years and we have been more than happy with them. They are a very pleasant company to deal with and have always kept their word.” “They are just brilliant. I can’t really fault them.

They are extremely professional and always readily available when I need them. I find them very helpful, they go out of their way to help and are always happy to explain things thoroughly. I am really so happy with them.”

REIA denies housing bubble He also said that Australia’s market is experiencing cyclical changes of a national perspective. “We are buying and selling in one local market that certainly contributes towards a national property scene,” he said. “However, the benefit to our customers is being able to pinpoint opportunities in Torquay as well as other localised real estate markets across Australia through LJ Hooker’s information and referral network.” For more information, phone LJ Hooker Torquay on 5261 2121 or email torquay@ljh.com.au to stay well informed about property market action.

Vacancy rates begin to ease

PRIVATE rent rises in Melbourne slowed and the vacancy rate rose slightly in the three months to June, according to new figures released by Housing Minister, Richard Wynne, last week. Wynne said the Office of Housing’s Rental Report for the March quarter showed the vacancy rate for metropolitan private properties stood at 1.6 per cent, up from 1.5 per cent in the previous quarter. “The state government is taking action now to support vulnerable Victorians so those who need it most can access affordable housing through a range of measures,” he said. The Office of Housing compiles the Rental Report based on data provided by the Residential Tenancies Bond Authority. It provides a breakdown of the median cost of private rental for a range of property sizes for local government areas and regions throughout the state. Wynne said the March quarter report showed the annual growth in the Metropolitan Rent Index of five per cent for the year to March 2010 was in line with

the figure recorded for December 2009, and well below the nine per cent increase this time last year. “Growth in rents in metropolitan Melbourne remains slightly below the long term average for the past decade. “However, we know that the private rental market remains very tight right across the state,” Wynne said. “Rents in regional Victoria grew by 6.5 per cent in the year to March 2010 - above the long term average of 5.4 per cent.” The median weekly rent in private properties across Melbourne was $340 in March 2010, compared with $330 in December. The weekly median for regional Victoria was $230, compared with $225 in December. “These latest figures reiterate the need for our record investment in both the public and private housing markets,” Wynne said.

THE REAL Estate Institute of Australia (REIA) vehemently disagrees with any notion of Australia being in the midst of a housing bubble, citing REIA data showing that historically median prices compared to income have been relatively stable for the past 10 years. LJ Hooker Torquay Real Estate principal, Bill Nairn, said local buyers and sellers are best to take guidance from people who are most knowledgeable about local market activity. “When you follow whole-of-Australia comments you can lose sight of what is truly happening in your own backyard,” said Nairn (pictured).

WRECK OF THE ‘JOSEPH H SCAMMELL’ CONT.: Extracts from ‘History of Torquay’ by James A Baines 1938 On the 13th May the wrecked vessel, including three boats, was sold by auction in Melbourne. Three days later an auction sale of the cargo was held on the beach. There was an attendance of 800 persons at the sale, various items such as oil, kerosene, tobacco, yellow pine, leather, printing paper and other miscellaneous cargo, where auctioned. A portion of the keel, was set fire to by the purchaser for the purpose of extracting the copper bolts. The deck house was purchased by the late Mr W P ride, with a view to having it moved to a site overlooking the beach and conver ting it into a two-storied seaside residence. But the task proved more difficult than was anticipated. The contractors, who made the first and second attempts managed to get the building some distance up the hill, but when the breaking of one of the pulley blocks caused it to roll back to the beach, they gave up the job and the deck house was then secured on the beach for the winter.

MARKET UPDATE

THE COMING MONTHS

PROPERTY REPORTS

We can again report excellent sales volumes & results from your dedicated sales team. A record land sale in Jan Juc & top results in home sales have been achieved over the cooler months. There has also been several exceptional sales in the rural area in and around Bellbrae / Bells Beach. The market remains buoyant across all sectors & we are seeing time on the market decreasing whilst prices across the board continue to escalate.

Stock levels have remained constant for the last few months after a dramatic drop in availabilities as we moved out of the effects of the GFC late 2009. Despite the cooler weather enquiry is strong though naturally numbers around town are down. As buyer confidence continues to improve we see further decreases in stock levels which can only impact positively on prices.

If you are considering selling we would be pleased to view your property at a time convenient to yourselves and provide a current market appraisal and report. Our report will include recent sales, availabilities, market conditions and options for marketing and selling programs.

YOUR GUIDE TO BUILDING & CONSTRUCTION ON THE SURF COAST & BELLARINE

Class and style with Derbyshire LOCAL boutique builder Derbyshire prides itself on its beautiful custom designed homes and first-class finishing. Noel Derbyshire and his team specialise in building homes that are designed to suit their clients’ land and lifestyle. This uncompromising approach is captured by Derybshire’s architect-designed Platinum Series One display home in Highton. The award-wining three-bedroom home is a breathtaking example of intricate attention to detail and clever contemporary design. The Platinum Series One has a six-star energy rating and offers sophisticated, stylish living that would be equally at home in a coastal or city setting. From the street it makes a stunning first impression with its eyecatching façade that combines glass, cladding, smoked pine and feature stonework. This effective use of materials continues inside where the plantation spotted gum floors bring warmth to the contemporary colour palette. European floor-to-ceiling windows wrap around the front living room to create a light-filled environment that is balanced by the natural texture of a stone feature wall. Budding ‘Masterchefs’ will be at home in the nearby kitchen which features white two-pack joinery, a mocha-toned Wathaurong glass splashback and Caesar stone island bench with twin under mount sinks. It also boasts premium stainless steel appliances, quality fittings and spacious walk-in pantry housing the fridge, small appliances and ample bench space. The kitchen overlooks a built-in day bed which sits beneath a large picture window flanked by bookshelves. Tucked behind the kitchen is a clever study nook that neatly combines a desk, shelving and built-in filing cabinets. The dining area opens onto an expansive outdoor deck. Large sliding doors on the other side of the deck flow through to a second light-filled living room. Down the hallway you discover a family bathroom and two spacious bedrooms. Downstairs also has a large laundry, powder room and double garage access. A beautiful timber staircase flows to an upstairs master bedroom retreat with large en suite, master bedroom, study nook and a spacious walk-in robe that would get the Carrie Bradshaw tick of approval with its rows of shoe racks, generous hanging space, drawers and two wall mirrors. The home’s architectural design rates highly for energy through its clever use of cross ventilation, a double insulated roof, thermal

mass and double glazed windows. These sustainable elements ensure that even on a bitterly cold day the interior remains beautifully warm without having to switch on the ducted heating. The total size is 43.5 squares incorporating 33.3 squares of residence, 5.2 squares of garage and five squares of deck.

The Platinum Range Series One is $650,000 (on your land). Derbyshire custom homes start from $300,000 (on your land). The Platinum Range Series One at Lot 143 Province Boulevard Highton (Mel ref: 450 K8) is open weekends from 1pm-5pm or by appointment by contacting Noel on 0407 524 406.

National Builders for a structurally sound home NATIONAL Builders Group have made a structural framing breakthrough, offering the most superior and environmentally friendly structural house framing option exclusively to customers at no extra charge. National Builders Group offer termite protected ‘blue’ timber framing to the whole house and all load bearing outer walls are framed with 90mm x 45mm studs at 450mm centres, giving greater strength and reliability and are totally vermin proof. The great thing about the National Builders Group termite protected ‘blue’ timber framing is that the treatment process involves the application of organic insecticides, safe and widely used in household consumer products, which are safe to handle and pose no significant threat to humans, plants and animals, but are toxic to termites. This offers the opportunity for National Builders to provide a 25-year structural guarantee to customers – some conditions may apply. National Builders Group recognises that structural framing is made from

natural timber grown and harvested from managed renewable plantation pine. As a result the following benefits apply: • No rainforest timber or endangered species are used • Plantation timbers grow on solar energy • Timber absorbs and reduces greenhouse gases. That’s right, trees absorb greenhouse gases during growth while releasing oxygen into the atmosphere whilst storing carbon. These timbers require low energy for growth and production, transport and installation. So, there you have it, National Builders Group provides the very best of structural integrity within your new home in an environmentally friendly manner. And that’s not all – National Builders Group also offer a long list of ultrapremium inclusions with no extra charge. To find out more, visit 16 Ironbark Street, Waurn Ponds, phone 5241 8355 or go to www.nationalbuilders.com.au

Mixing and matching external materials Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that you have to use the same mix of building materials or finishes on every exterior walls. Choosing a combination of textures and products is a relatively simple way to provide visual contrast and all dimension and interest to clean lined designs. Rendered finishes combined with weatherboards provide a great contrast and throw interesting shadow lines. Choosing products that are hardy and relatively maintenance free should be high on the selection list. Looking at products with low embodied energy helps with your thermal and environmental component. A visually inviting house immediately draws attention and ignites our senses.

Local favourites on show at Wolseley OUTSTANDING local musicians Jeff Raglus and Vicky Gaye Philipp will display their considerable talents at Wolseley Winery this Sunday. The husband and wife duo are local favourites, and will play the Paraparap winery from 2pm-5pm. Since playing together over the past two years, the duo has kept busy recording and touring – not just locally and nationally – but also internationally. Last year they recorded an EP titles 5 Songs, as well as touring such places as Melbourne, Adelaide and Japan. Sunday’s performance will be a pre-cursor to a tour next month along the east coast. But before they venture further afield, the pair – under the guise of Victoriana Gaye – will keep the locals happy.

The tour will see Victoriana Gaye playing songs from their recently recorded album, which will be released in spring. The relaxed atmosphere at Wolseley Winery lends itself to a Sunday session and Victoriana Gaye will provide the entertainment while punters relax and enjoy the open fires, great pizza and excellent wines. The music is sometimes whimsical, sometimes romantic and sometimes rockin’. Raglus and Philipp describe their sound as a quirky combination of pop, folk and a tiny bit grunge; the pair will play a mix of acoustic and electric guitars, trumpet, ukelele, harmonica and sweet, harmonies. For more information on Victoriana Gaye, visit www.myspace.com/victorianagaye

Support for your event ARE YOU running an event on the Surf Coast that is likely to attract visitors and boost local business? If so, then the Surf Coast Tourism Event Support Program may be for you. Applications are now open until Friday, July 30, for the next round of this funding, which will be announced next month. As part of the programme, the Surf Coast Tourism Board provides resources and advice to help improve and grow events that are likely to attract visitors to the region, particularly during off-peak visitor periods. Successful applicants can obtain up to $10,000 in funding as well as other assistance from Surf Coast Shire. Mayor, Libby Coker, said events were valuable for local business, tourism operators and helped make the Surf Coast a great place to live. “We’ve had some great events supported in the past including the Toast to the Coast,

Anglesea Tri-x Offroad Triathlon, Aireys Open Mic, Great Ocean Road Marathon and the Anaconda Adventure Race among them,� she said. “Events around the year not only bring in great economic benefits – which council is in the process of quantifying more exactly – they also help make our Shire an even better place to live.� The programme also encourages event operators to reduce waste at events in collaboration with the Barwon Regional Waste Management Group, while post event reports are also required to evaluate the success of the event. Applications should be addressed to the Tourism Co-ordinator, Surf Coast Shire, PO Box 350, Torquay 3228. Forms and further information can be obtained by phoning Simon Loone on 5261 0608, emailing sloone@surfcoast.vic. gov.au, or visiting http://www.surfcoast.vic. gov.au/eventssponsorship.htm

Glossy red, sensuous, sharp and tart BE QUICK – those tamarilloes are a racy lot and won’t be around long! Recently, the sight of a box of new season tamarilloes amongst the fruit and vegies almost made me sigh. Their smooth skin gleams alluringly, a fabulous shade of red which would add a warming glow over winter, a decorator’s item, as you can simply use a bowl-full of them as the centre-piece on your dining or coffee table; they make a welcome change from flowers! Originally from South America, they grow well in cool climates and in New Zealand were once known as the tree tomato, which is a fitting name as the egg-shaped fruit does resemble a tomato when you cut across them. Tart and tangy, the flavour is like a cross between a passionfruit, kiwi fruit and a tomato, and this is why they appeal to my palate, because like rhubarb‌ I love the sharp, almost sour taste. For this reason they marry well with rich meats

such as duck, but can also be used in sweet dishes, can be pickled or made into chutney or jam. They can also be yellow, and are best enjoyed without their skin. Therefore the easiest way to peel them is to use the same process you would adopt when skinning tomatoes. Just make a small cross incision at the base of the tamarillo and pop the fruit into a small saucepan of boiling water for 30 seconds. Remove and place in a bowl of iced water, then drain and carefully peel off the skin. It will ‘disrobe’ its lovely red jacket for you very easily.

Pickled tamarilloes

Ingredients 4 tamarilloes 1 cup water ½ cup white wine vinegar ½ cup castor sugar

Something different

3 star anise Âź cup Szechuan pepper 1 cinnamon stick 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind 2 teaspoons lemon juice Method Make a syrup from the water, white wine vinegar, castor sugar, star anise, Szechuan pepper, cinnamon stick, lemon rind and lemon juice. Bring all these ingredients to the boil, then lower the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Cut four tamarilloes lengthwise into eight wedges then place in sterilised jars and pour over the liquid. Seal and make these at least one day before serving as an accompaniment to grilled duck breast, and a salad of mixed leaves watercress, rocket, witlof, continental parsley etc.

The above recipe would make a palate-teasing starter for your next dinner party, but tamarilloes can be baked as well. Simply slice them thickly and place them in a single layer in a greased baking dish, sprinkle generously with sugar and a splash of wine and bake for 10 minutes, or until soft. Alternatively they can be poached with a little lemon juice and sugar‌either way they can then be incorporated into tarts (eg a frangipane) or combined with apple into a pie or a strudel. Simply baked and served with real vanilla icecream, or baked and made into a puree – you see how versatile a tamarillo is!

Sing and dance your way to grants LOCAL community groups that foster dance and music throughout the Surf Coast and Bellarine are being called on to nominate for their share in available funding. From ballet to ballroom and choirs to hip hop, groups are invited to put their hands up for a share of the Telstra Assistance Fund for the first time. Telstra Area general manager Geelong and Surf Coast, Jodi Manion, is delighted to see the programme expand to include dance and music community groups. “We understand that not everyone is into sport, and we have extended the fund to include more people in our community who enjoy different ways of getting active and meeting people,” Manion said. “Through these equipment grants, we can assist people of all ages to get involved in the enjoyment, fellowship and health benefits that come from music and dance.” Grants for dance groups are open to eligible groups from within the regions visited by this year’s tour of The Dancers Company – The Australian Ballet’s annual regional touring group. Proudly supported by Telstra, The Australian Ballet’s principal sponsor, the 2010 tour brings a brand new production of the ballet classic Don Quixote to 13 locations across Australia.

Artistic director of The Dancers Company, Danilo Radojevic, said The Australian Ballet aims to make ballet more accessible to regional communities around Australia. “With The Dancers Company we’re bringing the magic of classical dance to people who don’t live in major capital cities,” he said. “The Telstra Assistance Fund is a great initiative – it’s fantastic that we can leave a lasting legacy in each community we visit this year.” The music category is open to eligible groups within 400 kilometres of the 12 Telstra Road to Tamworth heats taking place across Australia from July to November this year. The Telstra Road to Tamworth is a national talent development programme which travels around Australia each year to uncover independent performers and songwriters from all corners of the country. Since 2003, the Telstra Assistance Fund has provided more than $7million worth of equipment grants to more than 5,700 community and sporting clubs across Australia. To apply, eligible community groups can visit www.ideasforgood.com.au/taf, choose the most appropriate equipment package for them and identify how the package would benefit the group.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

CORKS CREW CELLARS

‘The Farr Horizon’ GARY Farr’s impact on the Geelong wine scene is truly remarkable when you think about it, and deserves a high measure of our respect as wine lovers. His long time partnership with Bannockburn Vineyards set up that vineyard as the pre-eminent producer of the region, thus in turn setting up Geelong as a premium wine growing region of renown, and setting the benchmark for others to follow. He also set up Clyde Park around this time which was his ‘home’ vineyard where he was able to dabble and experiment further (he eventually sold the property in the mid 1990s. These days it continues to flourish under the stewardship of Terry Jongebloed, who also serves up a mean wood fired pizza I might add, then in the late ’90s he purchased some land from the owners of Bannockburn Vineyards and established another vineyard right next door growing Shiraz, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Viognier. Eventually, around 2004 Farr left Bannockburn to pursue and focus on his own label – ‘By Farr’ – and also welcomed his son, Nick, into the fold with his own label – ‘Farr Rising’ – which brings us to their latest batch of 2008 releases. In particular, I wanted to focus on the Pinot Noir releases, as they are just sensational wines and make me proud to think that they’re grown and made right here in our very own Moorabool Valley. I’ve been tasting Farr’s pinot’s now for more than 16 years and they have always been of an incredibly high standard and his latest 2008 ‘Sangreal’ – the epitome of his pinot noir releases – absolutely floored me. It has layer upon layer of complexity, depth of flavour and beautiful textures, mouth-feel, overall balance and palate weight. To achieve this level of sophistication, takes years of dedication, skill and an intimate knowledge of your surrounds – in particular the aspect of the site and soils – better known as the French term ‘terroir’. If you’re intending on getting to know what all the fuss is about in respect to quality Pinot Noir, then this is definitely a great place to start…

As if we needed any further evidence to cement the fact that Gary Farr is one of Australia’s best Pinot Noir makers, or that the Geelong region has the potential to produce world-class wines, well, this wine should well and truly put this argument to bed for good. I ‘watched’ this wine over a threeday period and it just got better and better as it fleshed out and opened up. The structure of the wine is seamless, reminding me of what good Burgundy prides itself on, and the overall balance is just perfect. A triumph to be sure, and a gentle reminder that the man can make a world-class wine or two.

Farr Rising Geelong Pinot Noir 2008 ($45)

Nick Farr continues to show his pedigree with another fantastic release. There’s definitely an affinity for this grape variety no doubt stemming from his father’s deft touch, but Nick’s wines allow him to show that he too can produce the goods on his own terms. Once again, the usual combinations of power, richness, and balance are at play with loads of multi-layered complexity. Cinnamon, nutmeg, and other spices are woven through the mushroom and savoury undergrowth nuances alongside the deliciously rich, ‘sweet’ dark berry fruits. Beautiful structure and length show the way – top stuff.

Award-winning book comes to life GEELONG Performing Arts Centre will play host to a performance especially for the children – which will also be enjoyed by the adults – later this month. Fox, by Margaret Wild and Ron Brooks, is a beautiful story told through movement, puppetry, projections and opera. Created especially for young people, this a

unique and stimulating piece of Australian theatre will be presented by Monkey Baa at Geelong Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, July 24. Produced in association with Siren Theatre Co, Fox follows the story of two friends, Dog and Magpie. Magpie is injured in a bushfire but she discovers that riding atop her friend, one-eyed Dog, as he runs through the bush, feels almost

67

the same as flying. “Fly Dog, fly! I will be your missing eye and you will be my wings.” Fox arrives and tempts Magpie with an even faster ride. Desire, loyalty and friendship become confused and after an exhilarating ride, Fox dumps Magpie far out in the desert. Abandoned and alone, Magpie begins the long journey home. Fox deals with powerful and challenging thematic elements including friendship, loyalty, risk, jealousy, survival, trust and hope. It is a story that is as rich for adults as for children; a story that goes to the heart of human relationships. Directed by Kate Gaul, Fox features physical theatre, puppetry, shadow and movement work, projection, as well as an operatic score by Daryl Wallis that is sung in its entirety by Sarah Jones. The performers – David Buckley, Jay Gallagher and Jane Phegan – tell the story of the three creatures through poetic and physical imagery. Sumptuously designed and imaginatively conceived by Gabriela Tylesova and Luiz Pampohla, this unforgettable experience is beautiful, wild and heart-strong. The show is suitable for audiences aged 8 years and over, with the shows in the Drama Theatre at GPAC on Saturday, July 24, at 11am and 2pm. Tickets are available by phone on 5225 1200 or online at www.gpac.org.au

Christmas in July

LORNE will celebrate Christmas in July in style this weekend. Lorne Arts is presenting a special evening of supper, entertainment and surprises at the Lorne Bowls Club this Saturday from 6.30pm. Apart from a sit-down dinner and entertainment from renowned Geelong tenor, Tim Edwards, those attending the evening are invited to get into the spirit of all things Christmas by dressing in pantomime theme. For those of you not familiar with the pantomime, it is a tradition in Britain and many other Northern Hemisphere countries around Christmas time. Pantomimes involve a simple plot – where the principal boy/girl is played by the opposite sex and the mother of that character is played by a man, while the main comic lead is played by a man who will usual have the reoccurring lines “Oh, not it isn’t”, to which the audience will reply “Oh, yes it is”. As the evening is being catered for, tickets are strictly pre-purchase only and numbers are needed as soon as possible, so get in quick. Tickets are priced at $35 and the evening will start at 6.30pm. For more information on the evening or to book tickets, phone Pam as soon as possible on 0419 108 501.

Hit the Road to Tamworth

ONLY weeks remain to see the Geelong Gallery’s Nature and beyond exhibition. The exhibition shows works from a group of Geelong artists – Glenys Bryant, Patsy Bush, Andrea Clifford, Debra Jackson, Jan Synot and Ann Webb – who share a studio in the city. The six artists draw on their diverse backgrounds in visual arts, science and education to create a diverse variety of paintings, drawings, prints and sculpture. The exhibition, Nature and beyond, includes works in which the artists interpret and transform our urban landscape and natural environment. The works explore the colour and form of flowers; the humorous interaction between animals and man; the relationship of man to his built environment; and the nature of space within the picture plane and the wider universe. The exhibition will run through until July 25 with free entry. The gallery is located at Little Malop Street, and is open daily from 10am-5pm, with guided tours of the Jan Synot’s Dusk 2010, oil on canvas. Courtesy of the artist. collection available from 2pm Saturday.

LOCAL songwriters and being encouraged to reach for the sky and submit their lyrics as entries in the Telstra Road to Tamworth talent development programme. The Surf Coast and Bellarine are renowned for producing quality musicians, and the Road to Tamworth aims to open the window to a network of music industry professionals, including songwriters, publishers, established artists and industry organisations. The Telstra Road to Tamworth continues to broaden its appeal to aspiring independent musicians. This year the programme is being expanded to include both traditional and alternate country genres that may include folk, blues, roots, rock and pop influences. Telstra Country Wide local area general manager, Geelong and Surf Coast, Jodi Manion said the programme had been nurturing aspiring young musicians from regional and rural Australia since its inception in 2004, unearthing amazing talent like Jessica Mauboy who was crowned the inaugural winner. “There are so many talented young music artists in this country, and the Telstra Road to Tamworth aims to provide them with an opportunity to explore their craft, receive professional

industry advice, and give them the best chance to achieve their musical dreams,” she said. As Telstra Country Wide celebrates its 10-year anniversary, a series of 12 heats will be held across every state and territory, as part of a number of local festivals and events – with the local heat being held during the Royal Geelong Show on Saturday, October 16. Winners of each of the heats, together with the four best songwriters, will receive a trip to ‘Boot Camp’. ‘Boot Camp’ is a two-day musical mentoring workshop in Sydney that will culminate with a live semi-final performance as part of the Sydney Telstra 500 V8 Supercars event on Saturday, December 4. The top seven performers and top three songwriters chosen at the semifinal will progress to the final in January 2011 in Tamworth. The winning songwriter and performer of the Telstra Road to Tamworth final will each receive a 12-month bespoke mentorship package, including a recording session in Nashville, domestic and international gigs, publicity, media training and support from a network of music industry professionals.

IF YOU love the environment as much as your caffeine hit, buying a hookTURN BYO coffee cup allows you “save the planet, one coffee at a timeâ€?. Made in Melbourne and one of the coolest accessories a coffee drinker could have, the re-usable hookTURN coffee cup is now available at Kiitos Living by Design, in Barwon Heads. Made from silicone, it’s firm but flexible, light-weight but tough, and will withstand 200ÂşC heat. It can be refilled over and over by your favourite barista and it’s pretty much indestructible. So buying a very affordable BYO coffee cup from Kiitos , Living by Design,– the local business that prides itself on quality, long-lasting,

innovative products – means you won’t be contributing to the mountain of discarded disposable coffee cups shoved into landfill, that will never decompose because of their polymer lining. The BYO cup keeps your coffee warm yet it’s cool to the touch and is easily washed – ready to be used again. It’s a way of enjoying the coffee of your choice, without adding more rubbish to the world. In fact, the company is so conscious of every environmental impact, that if you return the BYO coffee cup at the end of its life, it will be forward it to a silicone recycler who will turn it into charity bracelets or key rings.

The BYO coffee cup is available in two sizes and a combination of three colours for the cup and lid; in stock now at Kiitos Living by Design.

SPOIL YOURSELF WITH GROWLERS A WARMING fireplace to keep you cosy while you settle down for a relaxing coffee and watch the world go by is what will greet you at Growlers in Torquay. The Esplanade restaurant is much more than great views and high-class food. From 9am every weekday morning and 8am on weekends, Growlers is serving some of the best caffeine hits on the coast. And when the winter blues are overwhelmed by the spring and summer, move outside and enjoy the ocean views under the shade of an umbrella. The iconic Torquay establishment has

combined with Mulgrave-based coffee kings Griffiths for the past two decades to supply the best beans for the perfect coffee. Griffiths also plays a big part in Growlers’ staff being able to time and again reproduce that perfect cup of coffee, as they provide in-house barista training every three months to ensure the standards remain high. As the cup of coffee has evolved from something that may have been habitual or to pass the time, Growlers staff have seen more and more people come together over a warming cappuccino, latte or espresso. Whether it is a business meeting or catch up with an old friend, the humble

cup of coffee is playing a major part in every get together. For more, visit Growlers at 23 The Esplanade, Torquay, or phone 5264 8455.

Council is opposed to the introduction of gambling machines at the Bells Beach Hotel and has previously refused a planning application for the development. This is being appealed at VCAT in November.



Meanwhile the Victorian Commission for Gambling Regulation (VCGR) is also considering the impact of introducing the 30 gambling machines. Council wants to ensure that community views are taken into account.

WINCHELSEA: Tues. 2pm – 5pm Old shire hall (tea rooms) Hesse St

Service Changes

This 10 minute phone survey will be done over two weeks from 19 July.

Marsh – the mobile library service to  Deans Deans Marsh will resume in August 2010. Moriac – from 9 August, the mobile library service will be replaced by a Community Library Service for a six-month trial. This service will include ‡ $IRUWQLJKWO\YLVLWE\WKH&RPPXQLW\/LEUDU\ Service van. ‡ $PRQWKO\3UHVFKRRO6WRU\WLPHVHVVLRQE\ trained staff members. ‡ $KRPHOLEUDU\VHUYLFHWRWKRVHZKRDUH  unable to visit our libraries due to age and permanent or temporary illness or disability. ‡ %XONORDQVRIOLEUDU\PDWHULDOVWR organisations.

JULY 13 - JULY 19 2010 Goats are the workaholics of the zodiac but professional accolades often come at the expense of your personal life. This week’s Solar Eclipse activates your partnership zone, which gives you the opportunity to reboot a tired old relationship – or navigate a hot new one. There’s always time (and energy) for romance and love!

The Solar Eclipse is a magical time of beginnings and the promise of things to come. Finding solutions to stubborn domestic problems sees you nurture your home and family in innovative new ways. With Uranus in your sign, there’s never been a better time to embrace change and get your personal life back on track again.

Get ready to update your image via a hip hairstyle, revamped wardrobe or new physical fitness routine. Don’t be an over-cautious Crab! It’s time to embrace change as you reinvent yourself – and your life. Be inspired by Harrison Ford (born on July 13) “We all have big changes in our lives that are more or less a second chance.�

How’s your career going? With the Solar Eclipse in your professional zone, it’s time to re-think your approach to your job. Avoid the temptation to rest on your lovely Libran laurels. You have the opportunity to inspire others with your creative ideas so don’t waste it. If you’re looking for employment – now’s the time to strike.

Bulls – are your relationships stuck in a boring rut? The Solar Eclipse urges you to find fresh ways to connect with those around you whether at home, at work or in your local community. Relations with children, teenagers or friends will be difficult on Friday but there’s light at the end of the tunnel. You’ll need plenty of patience though!

Leos love to live out loud but perhaps it’s time to slow down and contemplate your life and where you’re going? The more reflective, compassionate and caring you are, the better the week will be. On Sunday, you need to separate your wants from your needs, otherwise you’ll just end up feeling frustrated and confused.

Putting goals into action may feel like one step forwards and two steps back at the moment. Hold onto the dream – passion and persistence are the keys to making your wishes come true. Saturday is the day for cool compromise and careful communication. If you’re a stubborn Scorpio, expect power struggles and domestic dramas.

It’s time to catch up on daily basics (like cooking, cleaning, washing and routine chores) as well as general body maintenance. How’s your healthy diet and exercise plan going? And how long has it been since you enjoyed a swim, a massage or a walk in the park? A little regular attention now could save you from big problems further down the track.

Are you having a cash flow crisis? Twins aren’t good at saving (spending is your forte – especially on the latest technological gadgets) but it’s time for a fresh financial approach, as the New Moon lights up your $$$ zone. If you can’t initiate changes yourself, then find a professional who can guide you through the money maze.

Are your dreams taking forever to manifest? The Solar Eclipse activates your hopes and wishes zone, and encourages you to be practical and patient. Follow the wise words of Henry David Thoreau (born on July 12) “Do not worry if you have built your castles in the air. They are where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.�

Don’t be a superficial Sagittarian. Loved ones have been telling you a few home truths but have you been listening? Maybe it’s time to take off your earmuffs and face the facts! This week’s Solar Eclipse promises a fresh start to do with joint finances and shared possessions. Be tactful though – you want changes but is the other person ready?

Pisceans love to please and hate saying ‘no’, for fear of hurting others. Take on board the advice of Bill Cosby (born on July 12) “I don’t know the key to happiness, but the key to unhappiness is trying to please everyone.� Stand strong Pisces, otherwise a loved one may bulldoze you into doing something that you really don’t want to do.

consistently and can look forward to more success. Thursday was a Stroke event for our Silver Spoon play off, and first round of the Captains Trophy. The winner of the Silver Spoon play off was, once again, Pat Malloch and she will represent the club in the state final at Riversdale in October. Junior open In cold, albeit fine conditions, the Curlewis Junior Open was played on Monday, July 2. The open attracted a quality field, including boys from 15 different golf clubs. Sanctioned by the VGA as part of the Geoff Ogilvy trophy, the open’s quality field reflected in the scores. Local player Tyron Cover from Ocean Grove Golf Club shot a fantastic 1 over 73 that included two birdies. Results boys open: gross winner Tyler Cover (Ocean Grove), runner up Daniel Wright (Gisborne); nett winner Tyler Fent (Commonwealth), nett runner up Mathew Wilson (Portarlington).

Mixed Thursday Shane Rose managed one of those magical days we all have occasionally shooting a fabulous 45 points, next in line was Kevin Hough and Jim Collison on 41. In the 9 hole comp, Rebecca Waldron, after the calculation had a very nice 42 points playing off an 8 handicap. Mixed Friday 9 holes Mathew Salter for the men had 38 points from Peter Ward on 38, while for the ladies Kay Williams scored 38 points with Jean Pardy 37. Saturday Men’s Par: 1st Rd Winter Plate and Ladies Par: Good scores were tough to find but five men returned 2 up. Heath Kent, Carl Drought, Miller Gelic, Andy Brough and Syd West putting them at the top of the leader board after round 1 with many others knocking on the door with 1 up and square. Best for the ladies were

Helen Barry, Judy Fox and Geraldine Collison all on 1 down closely followed by Jacqueline Vietri with 2 down. Sunday mixed With the sun shining, Peter Graham managed 38 points with Geoff McGarry close behind with 37. Pennant update Senior pennant teams reversed results this week with the div 1 team at home taking Torquay 5/2 and hopefully saving relegation this year, well done boys. Division 2, not quite so lucky lost to Barwon Valley 4.5/2.5 however the deciding matches could have gone either way, so here’s hoping for a solid win next week at Ocean Grove. What’s coming up: Tuesday Men’s 4B Stableford; Wednesday Ladies Stableford; Saturday 2nd Round Mens Winter Plate and Ladies Par.

NTPs: 4th and 17th Jenny Alderdice, 8th Lola Maloney, 13th Heather Bishop. This week was the final of our board event, the Gretta Volum, where two of our big hitters Gill Morrison(14) and Pat Malloch (28) did battle. Gill got away to a flying start and was 3 up after 5 holes. Pat, playing in her first match play final then settled to play more steady golf and scores were equal after 9. Pat played two beautiful shots into the two par three’s, 13 and 17, parring both which gave her victory 2/1. Pat has only been playing competitive golf for about 18 months and having reduced her handicap by two in the past two weeks is playing much more

Wednesday’s results Wednesday was the first round of the midweek 36 holes championships. Paul Walters with 73, leads by one stroke from 2010 Club Champion Tim Sinnott. (The second round will be on July 21). Only four strokes behind Paul are Andrew Groom along with Max Ellis. Andrew beat Max on c/b for the div 1 prize with a net 67. In div 2, Robert Speakman with 64, pipped Graham Gill 65. Bill Young with 67 took out div 3 from John Riordan 69. In div 4, Gary Pike 64, won from Geoff Lamont 65. NTPs went to Eric Black, Robert Hawkins, Roy Ball

and Wayne Bodley. Jackpot was won by Peter Carey. Saturday’s results Saturday proved to be a tough day. Hats off to those who played and completed their round. Scores did reflect the difficulty with a howling northerly wind prevailing. In div 1 Paul Byron 34 beat Richard Pekin on c/b. Trevor Doolan with 39 took out division 2 on c/b from Brian Baranski. In division 3 Shaun Litaize with 38 won from Steve Grayson 37. David Stacey with 38 won division 4 from David Yates 37. The Ivor McIvor foursomes final was won by Greg Beack and Phil Brown who defeated Ron Campbell and Ross Duff 2 up. NTP’s went to Michael Mckinnon, John McDonald, Wayne Olney and Geoff Lamont with jackpot to Eric Black. From the women’s room Much of the time when I write this report the focus is on

the winners and I sometime fail to report on the joy and pleasure. This week as I stood on the twelfth tee I took a minute to scan the ocean, I had a hint the waves might be big. As I turned my mind back to the golf I spotted Margaret Ganly, striding to the 18th tee. Margaret was heading the 9 hole girls in her weekly round. If you ever play in the group behind Marg you know what a pace she sets as you try to keep up. Rain or shine she thoroughly enjoys being out. I learned later that Marg celebrated her 95th Birthday on Wednesday. She is an amazing member of our club and an inspiration to all the ladies with her attitude and enthusiasm. Lindsey Dunstan took home the July medal. Other divisional winner were Micha, Pam Hedley, and Bernadette Oliver. NTP went to Dorothy Baker, Pam Hedley and Jenni Cotrill. Lindsey Dunstan and Mary Sweet took the jackpots and Betty Waters won the putting. Julie Rogers was the best of the Saturday girls

Pedal Power THE VARIETY of cyclesport available in Victoria at the moment allows any bike rider the opportunity to have a go at many different sporting events that are scattered across the calendar. Mountain bike orienteering is one of these events that only requires human power, two wheels, a map and a compass to participate. At an event, riders use a supplied map and are required to navigate their way to controls (checkpoints) which are placed on tracks or mapped features, riding on mapped tracks, paths or roads only. Riders interpret the map information and decide which is the best way to ride, from one control to the next. Riders start at intervals with the fastest through the course declared the winner. Competitors carry a control card which must be punched at each control and the fastest rider through is the winner. Being the fastest is not very important to most riders, as learning great navigational skills and interpretation of mapping is the real bonus with these events. Victorian rider Adrian Jackson is the current World Champion of MTBO. The next mountain bike orienteering event is the state championships this Sunday at Newstead. Further information on these events at www. vicmtbo.com or www.vic.orienteering.socialfx.net In other off road news, the Chase The Sun series is also holding their next race round in Melbourne this Sunday. For more event information on chase the sun see www.fullgasspromotions.com.au Locally, Geelong Mountainbike riders have got to look forward to the Geelong Mountainbike Cross Country Club Championships being held at the You Yangs on Sunday, August 1 and will bring out riders

from across the state. The Around The Bay In A Day ride will be held on October 17 and is looking like numbers of 16,000 may be possible this year. Growing from 2,500 participants in 1993, this is an incredible volume of riders for one event to host. Distance options of 50, 80, 100, 210 and 250kms are available, but if interested riders would like to have some choices in ferry options etc. checking the Bicycle Victoria website will be poignant now as some ferry options have already sold out. Getting sponsored for this ride to help the ‘Smith Family’ is another great way to help out as well. For riders wanting to participate in this event, we will have a progressive training guide as well as event tips in the coming weeks; which will help you with extending your fitness in preparation. Local Bellarine and Geelong road racers have the Melbourne to Ballarat road race on this Saturday, July 17. This race has a series of progressive slight climbs all the way to Ballarat and is usually much harder than its approximate distance of 120 kilometres indicates, as riders deal with a fast Tour De Franceinspired pace as well as hard wind conditions on the day. Good luck to all participating riders. Local road riders will see new Bikesafe signs at the Great Ocean Rd Bellbrae, (near Point Addis Road) Princes Hwy Moriac as well as Hamilton Hwy Murgheboluc (before Inverleigh) which is some highly visible driver- rider awareness signage in this local Bikesafe campaign. Summer time Bellarine resident, Cadel Evans is currently in a fantastic position with his yellow leader’s jersey in the Tour De France. After Lance Armstrongs latest crash in the Tour De France, it is safe to say that he is not in the running to win

the Tour anymore. With fantastic fitness and a solid team by your side, lady luck and managing to stay upright whilst racing at a frenetic pace for three weeks, also plays a very large part in winning the tour. Alberto Contador does not seem to have his normal incredible turn of speed and with Andy Schleck as the next closest top GC climber to Evans, he is looking like the most possible threat to Evans’

Surf Coast Under 17 captain, Tully Rowland-Wood, and team received their new tops from representative of sponsor, MD Nano Growth, Sten Lindeberg. In addition to the shirts, Lindeberg presented $400 to the club to help reduce some of the players registration fees. The presentation caped off a great week for the team, who beat Lara 3-1 on Sunday.

Braving the cold A STRONG cold front which ripped through WA and SA earlier in the week made its presence felt around the Surf Coast on Saturday. While conditions weren’t as bad as forecast, it was hardly a pleasant day for either players or their loyal spectators. Matches at Connewarre and The Quay were buffeted by wind and the occasional light shower just added to the fun. Thankfully at The Quay, Andy’s souvlakis were on hand to keep the worst of the cold at bay. FFV Provisional 2 Men: Surf Coast (1) v Melbourne Tornado (3) With the weather gods lining up a dismal day from from days out the Surfcoast Prov 2 Mens Team should have been alerted. But alas, they were not. Surf Coast went out flat and got hit by a Tornado. While Surfcoast did control the ball for most of the game they were lacking zest. Melbourne Tornado, however, came forward looking dangerous. The only good thing was that both the second and third teams also lost, which means we maintain our lead at the top of the table.

overall chances; but so far, the tour is looking very good for our boy. Imagine what a year Evans could have if he has won both the tour and a world championship in the one 12- month period; and that’s not taking into consideration the Geelong World Championships as well! We will all cross those fingers for him.

Women: Surf Coast (3) v Surfside Waves (5)

The SCFC Women played a great game, despite being short of several players this week. They were one player short for most of the match and were also minus their usual goalkeeper, with captain Amber making a valiant effort in goals. It was a very respectable loss to the classy Ocean Grove side and the Coasters should be proud of their performance.

U16 Girls: Surf Coast (3) v Barwon (0)

Surf Coast under 16s defeated Barwon 3 nil, putting in a good performance against a Barwon team that was forced to be ultra-defensive starting the match with only nine players. Surfcoast had to be (and were) patient trying to penetrate through six and seven defenders. Well done to all the girls.

U14 Girls: Surf Coast Yellow (3) v Surf Coast Blue (3)

The two rival Surf Coast under 14 teams drew at Connewarre in a fiercely contested match. The second half started out well for the Blues, with two goals in quick succession, despite some great defending by Lucy Razmara and Rachel Mather at the back. Although they were 3-0 down in the first few minutes of the second half, the Yellows refused to be beaten and staged a courageous comeback. The final few minutes were tense as the Yellows attacked ferociously, but despite three corners, they were unable to clinch the winner.

Thresher shark ban now in place

It has become clear today that despite soothing comments by the Federal Fisheries Minister in May, the recreational fishing of thresher sharks is now banned. This is the second major game fishing shark which has been banned for fishing by the Federal Government following the mako shark saga. The thresher shark has been banned through Australia’s membership of the Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC). The thresher shark is a popular game fishing species, particularly off the coast of Victoria. A bag limit of one fish exists in the state. Fisheries Victoria – in the apparent absence of information from the Federal Government – has issued the following advice: “Recreational and sport fishers may in no circumstances retain thresher sharks and must release them alive.” Below is the extract from the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry, Tony Burke, from May confirming their supposed support for fisherman. “The Rudd (Gillard) Government says it will do all it can to support recreational fishers to con-

tinue fishing thresher sharks in a sustainable way. “The Indian Ocean Tuna Commission (IOTC) recently decided to adopt new measures to conserve the species including a requirement for commercial fishers to release thresher sharks unharmed. “Australia already has in place measures that are designed to protect all sharks,” Burke said. “I want to ensure that should Australia need to implement new measures to protect these sharks that they are practical and take into account existing management arrangements in both the commercial and recreational sectors. “To ensure the continued good management of the species, I’ll consult with my state and territory colleagues and state recreational fishing bodies on existing arrangements and new measures as they are identified.” Where to now? It seems that ever increasingly Australians no longer have control over their own fisheries and that international organisations are dictating more and more to this government on what fish you are allowed and not allowed to fish for. If your rights to fish for species continues to be eroded by bans and the introduction of more and more marine parks with no scientific evidence or feedback on how these marine parks are expected to perform, let alone how current marine parks are performing, you will eventually find yourselves with fewer and fewer areas you can fish, as well the species available to you that you can fish for.

enchanting cities and wonderful waterways

WELCOME to this month’s Travel Talk. As winter is well and truly with us, you will probably be thinking of going into hibernation until the days get longer again and the rays of sunshine begin to warm your inner soul in spring. Or, you could pick up the phone and call the friendly staff at Harvey World Travel Drysdale, Ocean Grove or Leopold and escape this wintry weather. Once again the staff has been travelling to all points of the globe and all have many interesting stories to tell of their recent travels, so why not escape the winter blues and enjoy the rays of sunshine somewhere else in this wonderful world. Carol from Drysdale has just been on one of her trips of a lifetime, experiencing two amazing weeks in Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands in South America. Way back in 1831 the famous English naturalist, Charles Darwin, visited this part of the world. He cruised and explored the Galapagos Islands on The HMS Beagle, and what he discovered there still remains truly unique. There were birds, plants and animals there similar to other parts of South America, but what Darwin discovered was evolution. The different flora and fauna he decided had evolved through natural selection. Some 179 years later Carol explored this same region on a slightly more luxurious vessel in La Pinta. The 63-metre ship took them to various parts of the Galapagos Islands, spending time snorkelling and swimming with the sea lions, penguins and iguanas, who are so unafraid they literally come right up and peer through your goggles. Sat with blue-footed boobies and albatrosses while they did their intense and romantic courtship displays – viewed just as Charles Darwin did all those years ago. It is perhaps one of the only places on earth where time as we know it has stood still – perhaps the only place in the world where birds and animals are unafraid of us!

Mainland Ecuador was also a beautiful place to visit, being one of the smallest countries in South America, its charm is in its compact size, with so many wonderful features to explore. The Amazon Basin is a day’s drive away, the Andean Peaks that burst through layers of cloud form the avenue to the volcanoes, and the beautiful Pacific coastal plains that lead to the Indian markets in the highlands. You will find masses of colour within the Indian villages and unique handcrafts at the markets. Quito is one of South America’s most beautiful capitals, full of rich history and architectural beauty, it is waiting for you to explore its wonders, so why not pop in and see Carol, have a cuppa and escape the winter blues. We only have room for one travel story today, but all the staff have been travelling from the three offices, so feel free to give them a call if you have time to listen to their stories? I am sure it will inspire you to go somewhere. Happy travels.
