Wine tastings at local fairs and festivals could be under threat as Bellarine wine growers digest the impact of massive licence fee increases

BY ALISON MARTIN LOCAL winegrowers and tourism representatives are urging the State Government to re-think new licensing laws which threaten to “erode the Bellarine community as we know it”. The impact of new licence requirements on venues which present live music for patrons has been heavily publicised, with thousands of people taking their protest to the streets of Melbourne last month. However, the impact of increased licence fees on local vineyards and Bellarine community events is only just being realised. Wine growers could be forced to increase prices or simply not attend the Bellarine’s fairs, festivals and fundraisers. Bellarine Tourism chair, Hugo Armstrong, said the Bellarine and other regional areas were being “tarred with the same brush as a Melbourne nightclub”. “It appears to be a knee-jerk response but the blanket approach across Victoria shows the lack of thought that has gone into the changes to stop brawling and violence,” he said. Geelong Winegrowers Association (GWA) president, Lyndsay Sharp, said the new laws, introduced by the Victorian Government in January, were short-sighted and almost certainly guaranteed to sabotage numerous tourism activities in Geelong and throughout Victoria. “The ramifications of the fee increases are already being seen – fewer local wineries are choosing to participate in public events such as festivals, farmers’ markets, school and charity aligned fundraising activities and other public events,” Sharp said. “While the GWA endorses the Brumby government’s desire to reduce alcohol-induced violence, taking a shotgun approach to this issue – and simply introducing unrealistic fee hikes across the board – has crippling and broad-reaching implications for the Victorian hospitality and tourism industries as well.” Sharp said since January, a vigneron’s licence had

increased by more than 100 per cent to $397. “A limited renewable licence – to sell other wine and beer at a winery café – has increased by 698 per cent to $397,” he said. “A Temporary Liquor Licence – to attend one-off events – has increased by more than 300 per cent to $90.50.” Sharp said there were 62 members of the GWA and a vast majority of local wineries were small, family operated businesses that would now have to seriously consider whether to be involved in presenting and selling their wines at a range of public and community events throughout the year. “It’s a losing scenario all around – less wineries will become involved in tourism events designed to showcase local wine and less wine experiences will be on offer for the wine enthusiast to enjoy at cellar doors and public places,” Sharp said. “The state government will lose out as well when it finds it has dramatically reduced support for tourism ventures designed to attract people to Victoria.” She said the GWA would be pro-actively pushing for the new laws to be reconsidered. Armstrong urged the Bellarine community to get behind the protest against licensing charges and write to their local member and Brumby about their concerns. He said community events brought the Bellarine together and it would be a tragedy if they were impacted by increased licence-related costs, introduced to stop violence. “We are trying to get people to visit and enjoy our local wines but how do you recoup the money and remain competitive?” he said. “These changes could mean we lose our toe-hole in the tourism industry… Melbourne people will just take a cheap flight to Bali where you can listen to music and have a beer anywhere you like.” Armstrong also pointed out the licensing changes showed “a complete denial” about what’s fuelling the violence, which primarily was happening late at night at city venues.

Bellarine Peninsula Skate Series

THE GRAND final will be held at Gasworks Skate Park in Point Lonsdale on Sunday, April 11 during National Youth Week. The 2010 skate series sponsored by the Borough of Queenscliffe, City of Greater Geelong, Greenroom, and the Christian Surfers which began in January is a series of heats held fortnightly at skate parks across the peninsula leading up to grand final in April. The Bellarine Skate Series is in its sixth year and aims to create an opportunity for young people to showcase their talents in a highly skilled sport, in their local community. The participants compete across a range of age groups from micro minis (under 10s), under 13, under 16 to open and best trick. The grand final promises to be an event for all ages and one not to be missed. Along with the skate competition the event will feature young bands from the Bellarine Peninsula including the Ocean Grove band, The Rusty’s, who has earned a place in the world Battle of the Bands after winning the Australasian title in Sydney in 2009. The event kicks off at 12 noon with The Rusty’s and barbecue provided by the Christian Surfers.

Covering the Surf Coast & Bellarine Peninsula

Queenscliff Maritime Festival will be held on the weekend of March 19, 20 and 21. The weekend will start on Friday night with ‘Fish Tales’ and there will be many things to enjoy including couta boat races, a blessing of the fleet and many other community activities around the harbour, in Princess Park and on the adjacent Front Beach. These community activities are organised around the theme of ‘sand, sea and sky’ and will be a great opportunity for families to enjoy the many features of this precinct.

We also hope to officially open the playspace in Princess Park on that weekend by a representative of the Federal Government - it was part funded by a Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program grant. However, the park is already open for community use following its final safety inspection last week. We look forward to everyone in the community, but especially families, visiting and enjoying this great new feature in Princess Park.

Point Lonsdale Civic Association

Councillor Lloyd Davies will be addressing the PLCA at its meeting on Friday, March 12, 2010, at 7.30 pm in the Uniting Church Hall, Point Lonsdale. He will be talking about pedestrian safety in Point Lonsdale and a project to be undertaken by council addressing road safety infrastructure and working with groups at high risk to road trauma.

Queenscliff Historical Society

On Thursday, February 25 I spoke at the meeting of the QHS and talked about the many heritage issues of the borough, the significant eras of our development and the importance of the heritage review undertaken by Lovell Chan that we will now work into our upcoming planning review and eventually use as the key reference with respect to heritage overlays and guidance in assessing planning applications.

Shadow Minister for Regional Cities Denis Napthine and I recently met with members of the Ocean Grove Association to discuss the future of the Bellarine Peninsula’s fastest growing community. There has long been a desire within the Ocean Grove community to reduce the number of vehicles using The Parade.         connects with The Terrace, which is wider             congestion through central Ocean Grove, particularly during the summer months.       intersection remains an impediment to                         evenings, especially around school start                      lanes. The Liberal Nationals Coalition is committed to improving road conditions and infrastructure on the Bellarine Peninsula. I have spoken in Parliament many times over the past year on the need to improve the standard of roads and provide viable  western Victoria and on the Bellarine. Like most of the Geelong region, Ocean           improved health facilities. An expansion of the Ocean Grove campus of Bellarine Community Health is needed and

The continued development of Shell Road Reserve will secure Ocean Grove as the major sporting precinct on the Bellarine Peninsula and is supported by the Liberal Nationals Coalition. The Association has also raised the possibility of a permanent arts and cultural facility at Ocean Grove for this growing community. Both Shadow Minister for Regional Cities Denis Naphine and I were impressed with the Ocean Grove Association and their interpretation of what residents of Ocean Grove need into the future.

Manipulation hides the truth Inadequate government resourcing causing poor administration has forced Geelong Hospital to cut corners so that it appears to be meeting targets, which in reality are not being met. Funding restrictions have also resulted in medical staff being pressured to discharge patients quickly. For over a decade Labor has treated health care in Victoria, especially in regional cities, with spin. Under Minister Daniel Andrews, data collection has been

                 improper management of resources has been a blight on the health system under Labor.

Council is working hard to support a number of community groups and I would encourage everyone in the broader community to help as well. We are advocating on behalf of the Queenscliff Golf Club on access arrangements to Swan Island and other issues to help the club becoming a more vibrant attraction and give them a better chance of attracting visitors. We are also working with the RSL to develop a co-operative submission to Department of Sustainability and Environment for some restorative work and to the Department of Planning and Community Development for funding to restore the Point Lonsdale War Memorial. The Queenscliff Neighbourhood House is also moving to temporary new premises in the Melbourne Ports building in Tobin Drive until their new home is ready at the old high school site. This will make their current location in King Street available for use by Queenscliff Music Festival. Bob Merriman Mayor, Borough of Queenscliffe.

On Friday, February 26, I attended the regional round table convened by the Minister for Regional and Rural Development, Jacinta Allan. This was a key opportunity to inform the minister of issues facing local government in this region and advocate the concerns of the people of the Borough of Queenscliffe. I will also meet with the Premier,

Club looks for a home BY ALISON MARTIN

AFTER almost 50 years, it’s time for the Point Lonsdale Boardriders’ Club and its 170 members to find a home. The club has set up a working party to explore all opportunities to secure a permanent clubroom for the local surfers. PLBC president, Ross Bird, said despite its long history, the club had never been able to hang a photo, an honour board or host an event at its own base. Bird said the club was established in the summer of 1963/64. “One of the founding members, surfer Peta Goodall, said she could remember a makeshift clubrooms back in the ’60s,� Bird said. “But it only had three walls, half a tin roof and a makeshift toilet. She didn’t think it was legal or family friendly like the club has become today. “Now we have members aged six to 60, males and females. The club is busy all year, and would rival a lot of other local clubs for numbers and we deserve a permanent home. “And the unique thing about surfing is that people are still active over a wide range of age groups.� Bird said the PLBC had “made-do�, borrowing other club’s facilities but the boardriders’ group, local events and the sport itself had grown. “We have a big Australia Day weekend event with three functions and surfing over the three day,� he said. “So much of Point Lonsdale is about the beach and the boardriders’ club will come

to life even more if we have somewhere to recognise the club’s integral role in the community.� Just like the local bowling club, the football club and various other groups in Point Lonsdale, the boardriders want a place for storage, social and fundraiser events and to display their club’s achievements.

PLBC vice-president, Dean Zanoni, said club members didn’t mind if the clubroom was an existing building they could have on a longterm basis, or a new facility, and as close to the back beach as possible. “We’re hoping that when we celebrate our 50th anniversary in a couple of years, it will be in our own clubroom,� he said.

Bypass ‘not a priority’ VICROADS has spent up to $5million buying land along a proposed Drysdale bypass route, but the project is not a priority. More than 40 local residents and business people attended a public meeting, hosted by the Drysdale and Clifton Springs Community Association (DCSCA), to discuss the long awaited bypass. DCSCA secretary, Patrick Hughes, said the message from VicRoads was that a bypass was unlikely in the near future. Hughes said VicRoads planning team leader, Robert Scott, told the community the proposed bypass was a good idea. “But with a likely cost of $50million to $70million and the relatively low current traffic flow meant that Vicroads didn’t regard it as a priority,� he said. “However, VicRoads has spent $4million to $5 million buying land along the route of the bypass and will acquire more land.� Hughes said Public Transport Users Association spokesperson, Paul Westcott, also addressed

the meeting, explaining that “while private road transport was developed and run by Vic Roads, public transport services lacked an equivalent unitary body�. “As a result, no ‘corridors’ are being set aside for public transport development equivalent to the ‘corridor’ being created by VicRoads for a Drysdale bypass,� Hughes said. “The final speaker was Phil Baulch, of the Geelong Sustainability Group, who forecast steep rises in oil prices reserves become unprofitable. “Cars will be increasingly expensive to run and rising transportation costs will increase prices across the board. “Many local communities are responding by becoming ‘transition towns’, living in new ways that lower their energy costs and their carbon emissions.� The DCSCA held a ‘snap poll’ on issues discussed after the meeting and Hughes said “a clear majority of those voting wanted a bypass, but there was also strong support for better public transport�.

JPs gain support from Reiter LIBERAL candidate, Kurt Reiter, has thrown his support behind Justices of the Peace on the Bellarine. Reiter, who will stand for the state seat of Bellarine at the next election, said his party “would commit to keeping JPs and oppose any threat to their independence�. He said the state government had proposed to give itself the power to remove JPs after

A COSTLY DROP “It does nothing to address knife attacks and violence that are race related and drug related,â€? he said. “It’s as if brawling is all the fault of alcohol and music‌ The government needs to target problem venues instead of penalising the Bellarine.â€? In response to the concerns, Member for Bellarine, Lisa Neville, said if businesses were struggling to pay their licensing fees, they could contact the Director of Liquor Licensing. “Wineries are a significant contributor to the Bellarine economy, but it is reasonable for the liquor industry to cover its own costs, including the regulation, administration and policing of the industry,â€? she said. “Under the fees, wineries pay $397 each year, while a large late trading nightclub who may contribute to risky behaviour, can pay close to $20,000 a year.â€?

they have served for five years, but had changed its mind after community backlash. Reiter said Attorney-General Rob Hulls had questioned the need for JPs in the 21st century, suggesting documents could be witnessed by other professions under the Evidence Act. “I understand, first hand, the importance of trained, professional, accredited volunteers to help

a community function at its most efficient and to be its best,� Reiter said. “This is even more so the case in a regional community, like the Bellarine, where residents are limited by access and distance. “Under a Liberal-Nationals Coalition the office of Justice of the Peace, and the important services provided to the Bellarine community by its members, will remain intact.

“Abolishing JPs would waste the time of frontline police, who would spend countless hours witnessing documents and remove yet another element of community-building and community independence. “The coalition will also be vigilant against any move by Labor to give itself the power to remove JPs from office without good reason or independent safeguards.�

Residents’ plea for road works BY ALISON MARTIN ST LEONARDS residents want a portion of the thousands of dollars they pay in rates to be spent on “adequate” road maintenance. Ratepayers are not willing to contend with potholes, corrugations, dust and road conditions they describe as “dangerous” any longer. Reisdent, Paul Sproule, said a petition with 385 signatures had been sent to City of Greater Geelong and state government representatives calling for help to address some serious road safety issues on the Lower Bluff roads of St Leonards. He said the petition had the support of the St Leonards Progress Association and residents were now waiting for a response and hopefully a plan to resolve their road safety issues. However, CoGG, has claimed the specified roads were not dangerous to road users. CoGG acting general manager city services, Darren Martin, said the city “conducted proactive inspections of roads across the municipality, in accordance with its adopted road management plan”. “Officers have recently inspected Bluff Road, Cliff Street and Beach Road in St Leonards and have deemed these roads to be in a satisfactory condition,” he said. “Due to drainage issues in the area as well as the layout of the roads, particularly the s-bend, we will continue to monitor these and other roads in the area regularly.” Bell Parade resident, Don McKenzie,

is one of many residents who disagreed and said cars “slide” across the roads in all conditions and with no footpaths in the area, were extremely dangerous for vehicles and cyclists. He said ratepayers from just one section of Bell Parade – an extension of Lower Bluff Road – were paying a combined $30,000 in rates a year and deserved a road in safe condition. “Grading the roads as the only maintenance doesn’t rectify any of the problems because there is no substance to the roads,” Sproule said. “No-one is asking for the roads to be sealed because of the cost and the extra traffic it would encourage; but they need to be rebuilt.” The roads causing greatest concerns to residents include Lower Bluff Road, which is under the control of Bellarine Bayside, Bell Parade, Beach Road, Cliff Street and adjacent gravel roads. While CoGG did not believe the roads required repair, Bellarine Bayside chief executive Tim Page-Walker did agree Lower Bluff needed funding spent on it and the foreshore authority had recently installed “dry weather road” signs because of its condition. “We would love to be able to upgrade all foreshore roads but we don’t have the resources or council rates to maintain these roads for residents. “But we would certainly support a push calling for the City of Greater Geelong to upgrade all roads used by residents and ratepayers,” Page-Walker said. Residents with concerns regarding their local roads should contact CoGG.

Don McKenzie is not certain who has been responsible for the makeshift street signs around St Leonards, but said all residents were concerned about the condition of the local gravel roads.

Show proves a hit were treated to mild, dry conditions and all the fun of the show. Entertainment, rides, activities, displays and quality exhibits in the many show categories, from animals to china painting, were all part of the big day out in Portarlington. The show was officially opened in the morning by Member for Bellarine, Lisa Neville. For more ALISON MARTIN photos, see Pages 8 and 9.

Swim makes its mark

CHRIS Andrew was first over the line in the inaugural Bellarine Times Wreck2Reef Open Water Classic on Saturday. Andrew swam the 1,500 metre race in 17.02 minutes, 40 seconds faster than his nearest competitor. Melinda Kemp was the first female to reach the finish line, with a time of 20.40 minutes. Casey Fitzsimmons blitzed the competition in the 500 metre swim for juniors aged 10 to 13, taking first place overall with a time of 6.59. Brad Cox gained second place, with a time of 7.03 and Joshua Jokic took out third place, swimming the open water race in 7.08 minutes. Race organiser and Indented Head Yacht Club commodore, John Walter, said the open water classic was a great success and he was confident the event would grow in the future. He said considering it was the first event held at Indented Head and the wild weather on the Friday night and forecast for Saturday, organisers were pleased with the turnout of 150 swimmers. “I can see it can only grow from here and everyone was really happy with the event; it went well,” he said.

ADVERTORIAL FOR TELSTRA COMMUNITY NEWS FOR GEELONG

Telstra joins K Rock to get involved with Surf Coast community BY JODI MANION

Telstra has joined local radio station, K Rock, for its Wave Runner promotion to get involved in the Geelong, Bellarine and Surf Coast communities. Every Friday, Telstra staff have been joining the K Rock Wave Runner promotional team to hand out plenty of giveaways and to participate in competitions such as beach cricket, tennis and creative sandcastle making. So far we have visited beaches at Ocean Grove, Portarlington and Lorne. “Telstra’s support of K Rock’s Wave Runners over summer was pivotal to the success of the campaign,” said K Rock General Manager, Mr Dean Anglin. “We were able to get out into the community, visiting different beaches every day with giveaways and fun for the summer” he added. Telstra is also working with K Rock and the region’s Surf Life Saving Clubs to generate much needed funds as part of Telstra’s ‘Answer the Call’ campaign. Telstra has been supporting Surf Life Saving Clubs locally for the past six years, during which time in excess of $90,000 has been distributed amongst the local clubs. We encourage our residents to help our volunteers answer the call.

Jodi Manion, Area Manager, and Chantelle Haines, Commercial Manager from Telstra Country Wide support the Surf Coast community

Geelong and Surf Coast residents can assist their local Surf Life Saving Club by connecting to an eligible Next G™ Mobile Phone plan or BigPond® Broadband service at a local participating store and mentioning the ‘Answer the Call’ offer. Telstra will then contribute $30 to the participating local Surf Life Saving Club nominated by the customer. The clubs can allocate the funds generated as part of the campaign towards purchasing vital rescue equipment to keep our families and surfers safe on the beach. The beach is a major part of our lifestyle in the Geelong, Bellarine and Surf Coast area, so it’s important to support the

volunteers who keep it safe for our families to enjoy and to ensure that they can purchase the best, most modern surf life saving equipment available. Geelong and Surf Coast residents can visit their local T-LIFE™ store or participating Telstra stores to contribute to the ‘Answer the Call’ campaign.

That is what’s happening in your local community. Watch out for updates on Telstra’s community efforts on a regular basis. TCW0070/SCTBT

Torquay Hire Service & Torquay Steel Supplies are relocating to

Charity luncheon with the stars BY SARAH LAWRENCE COMEDIAN Brian Nankervis will be supplying the laughs, fun and frivolity as master of ceremonies at the Cotton On Foundation Handbury Golf Classic at the Torquay Sands. To be held on Friday, April 16, the corporate golf event will raise money for The Rainbow Riders in Connewarre. The organisation supports disadvantaged young people using horse therapy to help them develop. Nankervis is a well known Australian comedian who is currently the cocreator and adjudicator on the SBS music trivia game show RocKwiz. “I’m really looking forward to it. I performed at The Sands two years ago for a corporate show and had one of the best gigs I’ve had in a long time,� said Nankervis. “I saw an incredible documentary on autistic children with pets recently and was amazed at the effect animals can have on children.� As a father of three, children’s charities are close to Nankervis’ heart. “I think it seems a worthwhile approach and I think for kids who are autistic or who have issues, there is a whole range of avenues to explore,

but if something works like horse therapy and makes a difference it should be pursued and supported,� Nankervis said. “I’m a soft touch for charities and benefits. I feel like I’m blessed that my kids are very healthy, happy and you always feel like you’re there for the grace of god when you see kids with handicaps.� As Nankervis believes that “golf ruins a good walk�, he admitted he was relieved to hear that former professional Lucas Parsons would be attending. “Lucas actually knows something about golf,� joked Nankervis. Parsons won seven tournaments as a professional and last year gained exposure as a contestant on television programme, MasterChef. The day will also include entertainment from country rock band, The Junes. If you would like to attend the luncheon, tickets are being sold for $100 per person, including a three course meal, entertainment and all beverages. To book your tickets, phone Meryl Whiteside on 5264 3303 or email mwhiteside@thesandstorquay.com

problems facing the region and how to best move on from ongoing conflict to find resolution. A Bike Safe spokesperson said road users had to get past “the us and them approach�. “We are all in this together. We are constantly experiencing horror stories between cyclists and cars on the road, and it’s getting worse in Geelong

A NEW road bicycle safety group has been formed to promote safe biking around the Bellarine and Surf Coast. The group, called Bike Safe, has been formed after a group of regular road cyclists met at Drysdale last week. They met to discuss how to solve some of the key

            

and the Surf Coast,� the spokesperson said. “So our solution is to come up with positive ideas of how we can share the roads safely. Some motorists and some cyclists need to change behavior. “And this can be done through an effective community campaign on which we are working and seeking partnerships.�

12, 13 & 14 MARCH YOUR GUIDE TO THIS YEAR’S FESTIVAL This year the festival has expanded to 7 stages and over 120 acts with the help of some generous sponsorship, which has also meant that it remains a free festival. If you are coming to the festival, we do ask that you donate whatever you feel is appropriate to support the future of the event, there are donation buckets at all venues. Some changes and highlights not to

be missed in this year’s program include: • Our “Special Mystery Guest” will appear on the Sunday. He is an Australian music icon and has generously donated his time to support the festival. It will be huge. • Justin Brady’s Harmonica School on Sunday morning. Formerly of “Things of Stone and Wood”. Justin is one of Australia’s best harmonica players and will conduct a 2 hour workshop that caters from beginners to advanced. Bring your “C” harmonica or you can

buy one off Justin on the day. This is sponsored by Aireys Inlet Getaway and is therefore a free event and suitable for all ages. • We have a Buskers Stage this year in the Inlet Beach Park. It is unscheduled and is a walk up format. It is ideal for those performers who missed the chance to register or for performers who want to play more times than their allocated slots. • For festival goers there is a free Shuttle Bus this year during the day sessions.

FLU SEASON is fast approaching and for some of us, influenza could be deadly. Last year, more than 37,500 cases of pandemic influenza were confirmed in Australia, with more than 190 reported deaths – so don’t let this year be the year you go unvaccinated. While pandemic influenza cases are currently low in Australia, people at high risk of complications due to influenza infection are encouraged to get vaccinated. Those at high risk include the elderly, diabetics, asthmatics and pregnant women. The vaccine is offered free to some people depending on age, ethnicity and health. Look out for symptoms including fever, chills, coughing, sore throat, headache, muscle aches, fatigue and loss of appetite. Tristar Medical Clinic offers information, support and vaccinations so call 5243 3355 to make an appointment with one of our friendly doctors or drop by our clinic at 284 Torquay Road, Grovedale from 8am-8pm weekdays or 10am-6pm weekends.

HOT CROSS Buns will be all that much sweeter as bakers across the state bake more than 270,000 buns to raise money for sick children through the Royal Children’s Hospital, Good Friday Appeal, on Saturday March 20. On ‘Bundraiser Day’, Bakers Delight Torquay will join others across the state by donating $1 from every six-pack of hot cross buns sold to raise over $45,000 for the purchase of essential medical equipment to help make a difference for sick children this Easter. Bakers Delight’s support will help fund a new state-of-the art device called a Harmonic Scalpel which makes it possible to safely and quickly perform previously complicated operations through key-hole surgery. This equipment allows for faster recovery times, shorter hospital stays and less physical scarring than open operations, which is particularly beneficial for children. “The hospital currently has to hire the equipment for a high fee on a patient-by-patient basis, so having its own Harmonic Scalpel means a better surgical experience for more children and their families,� said Christine Unsworth, Good Friday Appeal chief executive officer. “The Good Friday Appeal is one of the biggest fundraising initiatives in Victoria and it brings together people from the community to help raise money for our hospital. “We are extremely grateful for this generous donation from Bakers Delight through the sale of their hot cross buns and hope we can raise enough for this equipment.� Chris Gurney, general manager franchise

Relay to raise awareness BY SARAH LAWRENCE IT WILL be a long and challenging Saturday night for a group of locals who plan to walk in shifts for 24 hours straight later this month. The sleepless night, however, will all be for a good cause when the Geelong Relay For Life kicks off at the Deakin University Geelong Campus at Waurn Ponds on March 20 at 12pm. At Relay For Life, teams of 10 or more raise funds by walking or running batons around a track for the duration of the overnight event. Bellbrae locals, Debbie Slater and Trish Curry, will be walking with their group, Surf Coast Striders, to raise money for oesophageal cancer research. It will be their 11th Relay For Life and their seventh as part of a team that has raised more than $50,000 through the years. This year they are already up to $8,000 through holding events over the past year such as trivia nights, wine drives, barbecues and Melbourne Cup day functions. For Curry, it will be a particularly poignant event as her sister passed away from oesophageal cancer last year and her brother is a cancer survivor. “We think everyone knows someone who has died of cancer. It’s our motivation to keep going to help raise money to find a cure,� said Curry. “We can’t find a cure ourselves but if we can help raise awareness and money then that’s our link in the chain.� The women are also praying for good weather this year. “Last year’s event was cancelled after only a few hours because of bad weather and tents flying everywhere,� said Slater. “It’s a really good atmosphere and fun. Even though it can be sad seeing the paper bags with candles on the side of the track in memory of loved ones who have passed away, it’s a way for people to come together and support one another.� Anyone who is interested in supporting the group or walking themselves should visit www.relayforlife.org.au or call Debbie Slater on 0427 613 635 Trish Curry and Debbie Slater are preparing for this year’s Geelong Relay For Life to raise money for cancer research.

Shadow Minister for Public Transport & Shadow Minister for Roads

Torquay residents have their say on Bunnings signage concerns Dear Editor, I don’t think people, and especially most councillors, realise that having an ugly entrance to a town can do a great deal of damage to it. Years ago, we holidayed in Port Macquarie in New South Wales, which has an entrance from the Pacific Highway, just like Torquay’s entrance from Geelong. The difference was that the entrance road to Port Macquarie was ruined with business signage. Our perception of Port Macqaurie changed from that moment from being a holiday town to an ordinary run-of-the-mill living centre. Don’t let this happen to Torquay!

supposedly aesthetically acceptable by the publicly stated 30-metre setback from the highway with plants screening the buildings. I am a DYI person where possible and personally think Bunnings is one of the best retailers in Australia, but at what price are we paying for them to be in town? I am sure there would be many, many large stores/ complexes that would be ecstatic and jump with joy with the potential advertisement of the store that is going to be seen by hundreds of thousands of people traversing the Surf Coast Highway, courtesy of the shire and Justin Madden’s interference. Preferential treatment, oh yes!

John Adams Torquay

Michael Brown Torquay

Dear Editor, Having just read the front page article in the Surf Coast Times on the new proposed signage for Bunnings, I am left shaking my head in disbelief at how this could happen. How could local council agree to changing existing signage regulations just to accommodate Bunnings? Are we to end up like Queensland? We have to fight to keep Torquay a pretty coastal town; of course we want progress, but at what expense? A business park, yes, but screened by vegetation, most definitely. Existing businesses have to abide by current planning laws so why be bullied by Bunnings? I totally agree with Evan Crick’s (Mitre 10) letter, and also congratulate councillors Rose Hodge and Simon Northeast for voting against supporting the recommendation.

Dear Editor, What is it about this council? Do they not have any idea about who they are representing? I am disgusted to hear about the idea of oversized signage at Torquay’s entrance. All you have to do is drive into Geelong through Corio and see the new business centre there to see how much of an eyesore big signage and chain stores can be. Bunnings has nothing to offer Torquay or surrounding areas. How can we stop this current council making continued bad decisions for this area? We have inadequate education facilities and sporting facilities to support the population, but hey, as long as we’ve got a Bunnings and the council has mulit-million dollar offices - everything is going to be A-okay! I’m just so disappointed.

Dear Editor, Whatever happened to being told the truth? What is wrong with our society of today that we accept bureaucracies/government or powers to be continuously changing their publicly declared statements/rules to suit themselves and or stakeholders when it suits? The Surf Coast Shire is hypocritical when it changes its rules/policies midstream, the last blatant example being the size of the signage in respect of West Coast Business Park. The approval of Bunnings being granted a site specific change to its planning amendment is preferential treatment by any means of explanation and so called equality/fairness to all is simply nonexistent or in fact thrown out the door. Hiding behind Justin Madden’s request is an excuse and the quoted explanation given in the report to council is simply well written spin. It is no wonder the shire is not considered trustworthy when actions of this nature take place, particularly when they do not complete the stated plans and objectives, which were made very public at the time of the approval of the placement of the industrial estate. The location of the park on the entrance to Torquay has always been very debatable, however,

Naomi Callahan Torquay Dear Councillors, Why are we not surprised by your latest actions to allow suburbia to slowly ooze its way into Torquay. I remember not too long ago the township was outraged by the thought of having the ‘golden arches’ at our town’s entrance. It was surely what instigated a review on signage to maintain the amenity of our town. Why then, if you truly represent the people, have you now so easily caved in to another big business getting its own way? Why do we pay rates to employ people in planning departments to set guidelines, employ you to govern these guidelines, and put you all up in $40million dollar buildings if you cave into the almighty dollar at every opportunity. I echo Mr Crick’s question in his open letter: Whose interests do you serve? The developer, the big business or is it simply your own, for it does not seem to be the ratepayers of Torquay. I trust the people of Torquay will vote with their feet and not support a business that does not uphold the virtues of the town, and vote out the councillors doing the same. Joel Grist Torquay

Dear Editor, I love competition. Absolutely love it. But I abhor unfair competition. The Bunnings deal stinks of unfair rule changes to help big business. Evan Crick is right when he says he and Sue, with their long-standing family owned business, Torquay Mitre 10, have supported the local community over the years. I can personally verify that they have been great sponsors of the Torquay Tigers. The footy club alone provides sporting facilities for more than 500 kids and cannot survive without generous support from private business. To turn the entrance to Torquay into an advert for a major business that has done nothing for this town is bad enough, but to upturn all rules for a giant, where that simply would not have happened for a community supporting local is just crazy. Denis Ryan Sponsor co-ordinator Torquay Tigers Football Club Dear Editor, I wish to express my concerns as a ratepayer and Torquay resident to the approval of a signage for the proposed Bunnings store on the Surf Coast Highway, while providing no regard to the local business owners who have invested their hard-earned dollars into the growth of the Surf Coast Shire. This area is our town’s front door and provides the initial opportunity to welcome residents and visitors to Torquay. While I was initially uncomfortable with the actual location of our the industrial estate, I accept it as being the better of other evils and the conditions regarding screening and subtle signage were in the community’s best interests. However, the first challenge from Spring Street and threat from big business has our council quivering. If Bunnings didn’t like the conditions they should not have purchased the land in the first instance. I urge council to listen to your constituents and take immediate action by rescinding the approval of the current changes of policy. Maurie Dale Torquay Dear Editor, Rose Hodge and Simon Northeast have shown us that we have only two councillors with enough integrity to stand by council promises made to Torquay businesses and residents in regard to the construction of the business park at the entrance to Torquay. All other councillors should hang their heads in shame for succumbing to the bullying tactics of big business. If Bunnings does not wish to play by the rules let them go elsewhere. Do we really need them here when they have another store 15 minutes away? Let us keep the entrance to Torquay free from crass commercialism. Gay Bell Torquay

have your say Dear Editor, Given that Bunnings has a store that is within a 10-15 minute drive from Torquay, why would it consider Torquay as a viable location for yet another outlet? Has Bunnings received privileged information or assurances from either local or state government sources which suggests that residential development and subsequent population growth in Torquay will be of a scale that can maintain a profitable Bunnings outlet in this region? Is the proposed development at Spring Creek back on the agenda? Are there any other regional residential development plans being proposed?

Dear Editor, I am disappointed by the Surf Coast Council’s decision to comply with Minister Madden’s demand to allow Bunnings to erect signage four to five times larger than 10 square metres, as specified in the West Coast Business Park signage provisions. I don’t believe large signage is a necessary requirement to sell all the lots in the business park to end users and I am certain all residents of the Surf Coast shire can recognise the Bunnings logo if it is located on a 10 square metre sign. I will not be voting for the current government in the next election while Minister Madden remains in the executive and continues to bully local government and us, the residents.

Aleksandar Milojevic Torquay

Dear Editor, ‘They paved paradise and put up a parking lot’. So sang Joni Mitchell 40 years ago. So what’s changed? I was devastated when the trees were cleared to make way for the industrial park. The banksias and few trees planted will in no way disguise the industrial buildings behind. To make matters worse a new ‘special’ consideration is created to accommodate a large chain store’s gigantic graffiti. I understand that we need to balance budgets and the council needs to remain financially viable. However, too many decisions are based on development at all costs. There seems to be no awareness of what the ‘community’ wants. My frustrations with the council are growing; Spring Creek, old school site and now the entrance to Torquay is to be dominated by a suburban ugliness with massive signs. Next it will be Taylor Park.

Dear Editor, I am greatly saddened to see how our so-called democracy has become a plutocracy, and the ‘Commonwealth’ has become a bad joke. At national and state levels major parties readily accede to the demands of big business – all in the name of ‘creating jobs’ (read: ‘making bigger profits’). At local government the main offenders are usually big property developers, but all of big business is so used to getting its own way that little local councils are quickly pushed out of the way. Local residents’ wishes and interests must yield to the power of the mighty dollar. In the case of the Bunnings signage demand, it is clearly irrelevant if the community wants to preserve a visually pleasing entry to a town that depends heavily on tourism. Having a huge Bunnings ‘shed’ and signage right over the road from our new council offices will be a reminder to future councils as to who is really boss around here.

Support for Kurt Dear Editor, I would like to comment on the article Bay to Stay (Bellarine Times, Feb 23). It would appear finally we have a politician interested in helping the Bellarine. Kurt Reiter has come forward with a plan that will make the Bellarine Bayside Committee more transparent and accountable, without handing the foreshore over to the City of Greater Geelong. For too long, money and resources from the Bellarine have been taken by the COGG and redistributed elsewhere. Despite the current problems, handing control of the committee over to COGG would not solve anything and probably direct more of our income out of our area. If this is an indication of the quality of Mr Reiter, we may soon have a Member for Bellarine, who is prepared to work for our region. B Chudoschnik Ocean Grove

overseeing a massive programme of property development within its boundaries, including many exercises in public consultation. However, its ‘community consultation’ policy contains none of the ‘checks and balances’ referred to by Mr Vorchheimer; nor does it contain any benchmarks to ensure that consultation is genuine, equitable and effective; nor does it contain any procedures to measure the quality and probity of any particular consultation exercise. In other words, there is nothing in place to prevent a repeat at local level of the sort of cynical manipulation of public consultation that we now know was being planned by state government officers. It would be a simple matter for City of Greater Geelong councillors to write a checklist of ‘quality benchmarks’ concerning public consultation and to require that each report presented to a council meeting includes that checklist. If the state government had adopted this simple procedure, the leaked plan would have been literally unthinkable. Patrick Hughes Drysdale

Email brings a smile Dear Editor, Many people will have read with a wry smile the email leaked recently from the office of State Government Planning Minister, Justin Madden. The email outlined plans to halt a planned 92-metre tower behind Melbourne’s Windsor Hotel, and then to use a sham exercise in ‘public consultation’ to justify the halt retrospectively. Commenting on the leaked e-mail, Planning Institute of Australia’s Victorian President, David Vorchheimer, said to the ABC “you’ve got to call into question why it’s being done, and whether or not there needs to be additional checks and balances to ensure that that sort of abuse doesn’t occur in [the] future”. Mr Vorchheimer’s comment about the revelations will strike a chord among citizens of the City of Greater Geelong. The City is promoting and

Pako Festa success Dear Editor, Pako Festa attracted thousands of people recently from our local and cultural communities, volunteer groups, schools, and many local businesses and entertainers from all walks of life. I would like to extend my congratulations to MatchWorks Pako Festa Team, City of Greater Geelong and Diversitat for a great day out. I was honoured to be amongst a huge attendance, which is a sign of a strong community and we are blessed to have so many willing to support the diverse range of opportunities available in Geelong.

Port money well spent PORTARLINGTON Primary School has spent a $75,000 National School Pride grant extremely wisely, with benefits for every student in every class. The school has invested its funding boost on a new playground and an interactive whiteboard for each of its seven classrooms. The whiteboards are a valuable class tool for students and teachers, providing the latest technology to make learning interesting, engaging and fun. And while the new boards are promoting healthy minds, the playground is contributing to many healthy bodies.

Portarlington PS principal, Denise Simons, said the playground was installed during the last week of February and was so popular that a play schedule had to be introduced. She said younger grades were allowed to enjoy the new equipment at morning recess and older students were allocated a lunchtime play during the first week, to reduce the number of students on the new playground at the same time. Portarlington PS students Caine and Kristen can verify the school’s new playground is fantastic!

Industry Info

Lifestyle properties ride the wave of success Residential vacancy rates remain stable THERE has been very little change in the availability of rental homes in Victoria over the last 12 months with a vacancy rate of 1.4 per cent being recorded in January 2010, identical to the result in January 2009. After three successive months of easing the vacancy rate tightened in Melbourne reducing from 1.6 per cent in December to 1.5 per cent. This confirms that the minor improvement in the December quarter was not the start of a wider improvement; rather it was a cyclical variation. There is also very little difference in the availability across Melbourne. In the inner city, the suburbs from 0 to 10 kilometres from the CBD, the vacancy rate remained stable at a low 1.5 per cent. The middle suburbs, those between 10 and 20km from the CBD worsened from 1.7 to 1.5 per cent and the outer suburbs remained stable at 1.2 per cent. In regional Victoria as a whole the vacancy rate tightened and remained lower than Melbourne for the sixth month in a row. Of the three larger regional centres vacancies again remained the most difficult to find in Bendigo where the vacancy rate was 0.4 per cent. In Geelong there was a minor drop from 1.1 to 0.9 per cent and in Ballarat there was a minor improvement from 0.8 to 1 per cent. At this point there is no clear indication that the higher financial assistance for first home buyers has translated into an easing in the rental market as had been widely forecast.

“They were quick and prompt as well as reliable. “She made it personal. We just had a new baby and she really respected our family life. She brought through genuine and qualified buyers.” The business believes part of its success is due to the strength of its online marketing. The business values it as one of its most important promotional tools. “Ninety per cent of inquiries now come from the

Internet. Gone are the days of the walk-up office,” Hayden said. “We focus heavily on e-newsletters, database, and working with dedicated property managers such as Golf Retreats Victoria to get the best returns for our owners.” For more information visit Torquay Links Property at www.linksproperty.com.au

THE ACTUAL act of buying property as an investment is straight forward, but arriving at that decision can be a struggle. Industry commentators say that the last hurdle many property investors face is perhaps their biggest – getting into the right mindset to make the decision. “Having good access to the right information and experts to guide you through the process – including the financial, legal, taxation or accounting requirements – is crucial,” said Bill Nairn, franchise owner, LJ Hooker Torquay. “However, a lot of people, even with all this knowledge, still find they are unable to make the decision when the right moment arrives. “One of the key differences between an amateur and a professional investor is that the latter has learnt that acquiring an investment property is a business decision – with no room for emotional barriers.” Nairn says amateur investors typically fall in love with a property, buy it and then look for ways to rationalise the hasty investment decision made. Nairn said asking yourself the following three questions is important: Do you view your investment property as an asset

or a risk? The only way to view property investment as an opportunity is to begin small with something firmly within your means. Make sure you quantify your risk with numbers and work out your cash flow. If you can manage that cash flow for about seven to 10 years – the average holding time in Australia, then risk does not need to be a concern. Do your family, friends and colleagues invest in property? What we know is often a result of whom we know. A social circle can be a very hard comfort zone to break out of – especially when it involves taking a financial risk. This is why professional investors often surround themselves with experts who offer them the facts and intelligent analysis to aid good business decisions. What is your default setting when it comes to investing? Most of us have been taught the ‘Four Step’ – step 1: Get good job; step 2: Save a deposit; step 3: Buy a home; step 4: Save for retirement through super.

AS THE Australian property market continues to show resilience and strength, the lifestyle sector has been achieving exceptional results. In particular, lifestyle property specialists, Torquay Links Property have reported their highest sales on record. The business focuses on property at the exclusive estate surrounding The Sands golf course in Torquay. With a smaller range of houses in its ‘market’ than the average real estate agent, the business has proved that its excellent service and thorough knowledge of the area has secured many loyal clients. “We are quickly becoming a market leader based on the premise that we work in an ethical and focused manner to obtain the highest possible price for our vendors. It is that simple,” said owner, Lynne Hayden. “People are gravitating towards The Sands for so many reasons, such as the great lifestyle and being nestled right behind the sand dunes with easy access to the beach.” Underlining the strength of the market, the company recently sold more than $2million worth of properties in just two days. Melissa and Ryan Sherriff recently sold their Sands property in St Georges Way through Torquay Links Property. “Links are fantastic, extremely passionate. Lynne was always available to talk and made selling our house really easy,” Melissa said.

Home Owners and Investors

Dear Home Owner/Investor, Property values on the Surf Coast and particularly Torquay and Jan Juc have risen dramatically in recent times. Residents we have spoken to are most interested to know the current value of their properties as this allows them to pursue other financial initiatives or to ensure that their homes are adequately insured. To assist our local residents we are conducting an exciting new initiative. Over the next three (3) months we will be offering our opinion on the value of every home in the area. Each appraisal will only take approximately 10-15 minutes, as we hope to complete one street per day.

What you will receive    

      

How do you participate?  Â?Â?Â?Â? ­ €‚  Â?€ 0437 882 088 or 5261 2101 – patrickh@hayden.com.au Strict confidentiality will be adhered to for each property. We look forward to your participation and to meeting with you.

WRECK OF THE INVERLOCHY: Extracts from ‘History of Torquay’ by James A Baines 1938

At 10 o’clock on Thursday night in a moderate south-west wind, the captain, on the poop, attempted to wear the vessel round, but she missed stays. The anchors were of no avail; the ship bumped on the ground, then went broad-side on the reef. The captain decided that the vessel must be abandoned, a decision that was afterwards queried. The boats put off at 4am, the captain and his wife with 11 of the crew in the longboat and the first mate with 10 of the crew in the lifeboat. The wind after midnight was very strong, and the seas high, with the result that all occupants were wet to the skin. Those in the longboat, eventually landed a few miles west of Barwon Heads, being provided with breakfast and comforts by Miss Sarah McDonald, house- keeper at the seaside residence of Mr Neil Campbell of Geelong. The Scottish sailors said that her humanitarian conduct was worthy of her famous Caledonian namesake, Flora McDonald, who ministered to the needs of Bonnie Prince Charles. Mrs Kendrick was lamenting the loss of all she had in the world, including jewellery, two pianos, clothing and a high grade bicycle, but the captain and the crew were anxiously pondering the probable fate of the lifeboat’s occupants, who had not been heard of for hours.

Hotondo gives you greater range A NEW design has been added to Hotondo Homes range of more than 90 floorplans, providing more options for customers looking to build a new home. The Lockhart 310 is the latest design to be released by Hotondo Homes. It is a total of 33.3 squares and maximises inside and outside living space. It comprises four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas and an attached double garage. With an appealing facade and entry porch

positioned to the side, the home would suit an average shaped block as well as a corner allotment. The intelligent design also allows for cross ventilation air flow throughout the home, especially in the main living area. Designed with entertaining in mind, the living areas make up the body of the home and the openplan kitchen is positioned in the centre. Living areas include a private living room and open-plan family and dining areas. The kitchen has a large island bench and spacious butler’s pantry.

Keeping with a contemporary design concept, there is a sizable covered outdoor area off the dining area, family area and main bedroom so residents can enjoy protected alfresco living. The master bedroom is separately zoned from the remaining bedrooms and works as a haven for parents with its luxurious en suite, copious amounts of robe space including a walk-in robe. There is even room for a parents study area. Three additional bedrooms are located at the front of the home and are serviced by not only one

bathroom, but also a powder room for guests to utilise. Each Hotondo Homes floor plan is completely flexible so clients can work with their builder to determine what modifications would best suit their lifestyle and budget. On top of this all clients receive a fixed price contract upfront so there are no hidden extras further down the track. For more information about building with Hotondo Homes, phone 1800 677 156 or visit www.hotondo.com.au

Make your dream home affordable METRICON, Victoria’s leading home builder, is welcoming 2010 by rolling back the price throughout regional Victoria across selected Designer and Freedom range homes, making them more affordable than ever before. Metricon continues to make the dream of home ownership a reality by selecting from its extensive range of inspiring single and double storey awardwinning homes jam packed with features, but without the huge price tag. With affordability a big focus for home buyers this year, there is no need to compromise when you choose Metricon. Metricon’s sales and marketing manager, Simon Lofts, said that in 2010 Metricon has created a number of innovative solutions that will assist

home buyers to make their home ownership dreams come true by reviewing our prices for regional Victoria. “We recognise that particularly within the building industry, we need to be competitive – without compromising on quality, design and value, which is why Metricon have made their homes more affordable than ever before,� he said. “Our high standards extend to our professional new home consultants, who are customer focused and dedicated to helping home buyers realise their dreams. “In fact, our point of difference – according to feedback from people who’ve built with us – is our personalised attention and being able to deliver the ultimate building experience.

“Our 2010 promotion reflects our core customer values of design, value, quality and trust. And now is the ideal time to build and be tempted with up to $30,000 worth of extras for an attractive $4,950. “Our Allure promotion makes it easy and affordable to tailor your home to suit your individual needs. The possibilities are endless with any combination – which allows you to freely choose your own options – to an affordable maximum spend of $4,950. “This demonstrates not only affordability but also flexibility within our packages – it’s never been more achievable, easier and more exciting to build the home of your dreams.� Please note that this promotion is available for a limited time only and conditions apply.

“In 2010 Metricon is offering our customers more choice makes with new displays, new designs and a great selection of home and land packages to suit all budgets,� Lofts said. “And to top this off, all of our homes feature superior quality workmanship, independent quality checks and a rock-solid 25-year structural guarantee. “We have stepped up the antics in 2010 by offering customers an 18-week build time guarantee. This reflects our confidence in our operations and also takes the pressure off those who have rental costs whilst waiting for their homes to be built.� For further information about Metricon, visit www.metricon.com.au, phone 1300 METRICON (638 742) or visit your nearest Metricon display centre.

Are you designing your home to achieve maximum capital appreciation? The traditional beach shack is becoming a thing of the past with new trends appearing daily. We asked renowned coastal builders Michael & Di Dahm from Blue Cove Homes to tell us about some of the emerging hot new coastal building trends to make sure your home makes you money.

“Great coastal design should facilitate a seamless connection of the indoor / outdoor areas. These spaces should be seen as an extension of each other. This allows you to capture the essence of real coastal living� says Michael “Gone is the generic approach to house designs where the one design fits all; today’s consumers are far more discerning and want their homes to reflect their lifestyles and personalities�. Blue Cove Homes fundamental approach to custom designing takes a very hand on approach. Building materials that are appropriate to the coast are one area that we pay particular attention to. Our aim is to make sure each home makes the most of its surroundings and is orientated to maximise views, fits the family’s individual needs and has that “wow factor� our clients are seeking. Blue Cove Homes has just moved into a new a new office and are offering a free 1 hour no obligation consultation to help you better understand the building process.

Teen takes it all in her stride BY NATHAN HALE ANY TEENAGER could be forgiven for daring to dream if they had won a songwriting competition, had an album produced and earned a spot on the Apollo Bay Music Festival card – all by the age of 16. For Apollo Bay’s Katie Maxwell, however, dreaming is part of the fun, but reality is the overriding factor which helps her to maintain a balanced outlook on where she is heading. “Lots of musicians go out there with these ideas of going to hit the big time and become stars,” Maxwell said. “But it doesn’t really happen that way… I don’t – at the moment – ever really think or feel like I want to do that.” So, no grandiose plans, just the thought of making the most of the talent she has and enjoying the ride – and to date, the ride has included plenty of highs. Last year she was named the Apollo Bay Music Festival’s young songwriter of the year after beating off the competition to take the coveted award. Last year’s success came after a belowpar performance in 2008 – and it was that disappointment which spurred Maxwell to the award. “In 2008 I went in and played and I didn’t think it went very well,” she said. “I am not really that comfortable playing in front of people, as I am naturally a pretty shy person, and I was the first one on stage and it was not all that great. “So I decided I wanted to go back last year and prove a point. So I entered the songwriting competition and was fortunate enough to win.”

That success included a day’s recording at Otway Studios – enabling Maxwell to produce an album – and also giving her another insight into the music industry. The exposure is also a huge boost for the talented teenager, and she will be appearing for a 40-minute set on the Saturday of the festival – which will run from Friday, March 26 to Sunday, March 28. A Year 11 student at Trinity College in Colac, Maxwell has still not overcome her shyness of performing in front of people, but she finds within herself a comfortable way of dealing with it. “I have this approach to the crowd which is probably really strange, but it helps me,” she said. “I just go out and play and actually don’t care what the crowd thinks – I just want to get on stage and play my music and if they enjoy it, that’s great, and if they don’t, well, they don’t.” Maxwell will be accompanied on stage by Dylan Johnson, who will be playing guitar. The performance will follow this year’s Young Performer competition, which starts at 10am and runs through until approximately 1pm, with Maxwell to follow. Tickets remain on sale for the festival, which includes homegrown stars such as Kasey Chambers and James Blundell mixed with a host of up and coming musicians and talented international guests. To listen to Kate Maxwell’s music, visit www.myspace.com/katiemaxwell11 For more information on the festival, visit www.apollobaymusicfestival.com

Texan trio The Flatlanders will make their Australian debut at this year’s festival.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

CORKS CREW CELLARS

Hallelujah, Winesave me! THIS week’s column sees a slight departure in style from the normal offerings of previous articles (yeah! I hear you say). The following wine related stories all grabbed my attention this week, hopefully yours too!

Save wine with ‘Winesave’:

Now this is interesting news for all winelovers. I saw this for myself first hand last week and the results are amazing! ‘Winesave’ ($29) is a sleek new way of keeping opened bottles of wine in perfect condition for consumption over an indeterminate period. Food grade argon gas is used via a spray container to displace air from the surface of the wine in a bottle within seconds to provide an impenetrable seal and therefore halt any deterioration in the quality of the wine indefinitely. The cans each contain approx 50 sprays and are proven to work – I heard Sommelier’s Association of Australia president Ben Edwards is known to have used it after opening a bottle prior to Christmas then trying the bottle again nearly six weeks later to find it fresh and just as he had left it. Wow, I’m guessing stocks can’t come quick enough…

Here comes Geelong!

I love the Geelong region as a wine region. Sure, I’m born and bred navy and white through and through and probably naturally biased but truly, it is one of the great regions for producing wine in this country – mark my words. This view is no more evident than in the latest media release on the Geelong 2010 vintage from Wine Geelong, which boasts ‘Move over Australia, here comes Geelong’. Good to see them putting it out there! The season has been almost textbook perfect with a long, slow ripening period and enough rainfall at just the right times. Still, the region is in drought, thus yields are down but this is also a good thing as this adds greater intensity, complexity and flavour to the resultant wines. C’mon Geelong, bring it on!

Nick Barker will be playing Anglesea’s Red Till this Friday night to help promote the release of his seventh solo album, Black Water Blues. The album, his first since 2005, was produced by Mick Thomas and is Barker at his best. The gig starts at 7pm.

My island home

The Winesave, which is set to become a must-have item.

Last Wednesday night I had the pleasure of sharing dinner with the fantastic Jacques Lurton of Bordeaux and global wine fame, who’s on a flying visit to his “favourite place in the world” to do vintage at his property on Kangaroo Island. Jacques is famous in wine circles for being one of the ‘Flying Winemakers of the ’90s’, tripping around the world making wines here, there and everywhere, most notably France, Spain, Argentina, Chile and Australia. But it was here that he found the conditions most liberating, where he was able to break away from the stifling restrictions that was Bordeaux and the French winemaking ‘system’ in general to finally create the wines he’d dreamed of making and that he loves to drink himself, citing Brian Croser as his biggest winemaking influence and a great mentor. His enthusiasm and passion for Australia and our winemaking potential was highly contagious and I can absolutely recommend you try (special occasion obviously!) his The Islander Kangaroo Island Yacca Jack ($75). It’s a blend of Cabernet Franc and Sangiovese that is simply supreme drinking pleasure.

Exhibition with a focus on four

Tuesday 9 March 2010

FOUR people with four different interpretations of the Surf Coast has provided the inspiration for the March photographic exhibition at Swellarts in Anglesea. ‘Focus on Four’ looks through the lens of photographers Rebecca Hosking, Kevan Way, Dean Cooper and Darryl Fowler, with images capturing coastal panoramas to nature’s small details in Hosking’s macro photographs. With his passion for the ocean and the Surf Coast,

Kevan Way searches for those “decisive moments” – sunset’s rolling mist at Fairhaven, nature’s colours of storm or sunrise, a surfer locked into the liquid green of a wave. “The decisive moment of taking a photo when you capture the essence of your subject, or miss it entirely,” he explains. Point Lonsdale photographer Dean Cooper has achieved professional landscape photography awards in his career and continues this quality in

his early morning vistas of the Anglesea and Point Addis cliffs. Hosking prefers to close in on the fragility and beauty of nature by drawing attention to the details around us that we often pass over. Fowler’s photography is proving popular with locals and holiday makers for capturing the essence of his hometown, Anglesea, and Point Roadknight seascapes. “You will normally catch me partly submerged

in seawater or on top of a rock, with my tripod and Nikon by my side, at one of my favourite locations attempting to capture that awesome vista I have been dreaming of,” he said. As part of this exhibition the photographers will be at Swellarts this Saturday from 11.30am-1pm to talk about their work. The exhibition will remain on display at Swellarts, Anglesea Shopping Village, until March 24.

Kids rule at the Beach Hotel Tuesday 9 March 2010

JAN JUC’S Beach Hotel is a kids’ haven on Thursday nights. While the parents are sitting back enjoying a relaxing drink and a chat, the children take over in the play area, with face painting, games and the ever-popular balloon animals. Every Thursday night the hotel puts on kids’ activities, and the evening is continuing to grow in popularity. Apart from the kids being well catered for, the adults are looked after on Wednesday nights with a schnitzel night. There are 12 different types of schnitzel on offer, including a Mexican with marinated capsicum with salsa and salami, a meatlovers with ham salami and chorizo sausage with BBQ sauce and cheese, as well as a beach parma with red and green pepper, Napoli sauce and cheese. But if schnitzel is your not ideal meal then the award-winning hotel has a delicious range of items on the menu, ranging from Thai beef salad to bangers and mash to the old favourite, fish and chips. Head down to the Jan Juc Beach Hotel at 3 Stuart Avenue, Jan Juc, or call 5261 5111.

All the way from Paris for the kids night last week was Remi Guillou, 5, who was getting his face painted by The Party Girl, Monique Van.

The visiting Guillou family from Paris enjoyed their night last week, as The Party Girl, Monique Van, gave them a display in balloon shaping. Pictured were (from left) Madox Grayling, 3, from Jan Juc, Ruby Guillou, 3, Alice Guillou, 7, and Remi Guillou, 5.

Unwind in the perfect location Tuesday 9 March 2010

BY SARAH LAWRENCE STUNNING views and gorgeous food are all part of the experience when you visit At The Heads restaurant. The iconic Barwon Heads building, located on the idyllic Barwon River mouth, was originally a boat shed before renovations saw it upgraded and used on the ABC television programme, Seachange. According to the manager, Caspar Hessenberg, the restaurant is one of the busiest in Barwon Heads and surrounds over the summer. “People come from all over to visit us here. It was choc-a-block over summer. Lots of regular tourists say that their trip is not complete without coming for a meal here once a year,� said Hessenberg. The restaurant is also a renowned spot for many romantic occasions. “We do lots of weddings here – we’ve already got three booked in for March,� he said. A popular time at the venue is their happy hour from 4pm-6pm from Monday to Friday. “Customers find it very relaxing and pleasant after a stressful day to have a beer or wine on the deck at happy hour,� Hessenberg said. The menu is rich in fresh seafood choices such as the ocean tasting plate with prawns, calamari and fish or the pan seared calamari with avocado,

chili oil and potato crisps. There is also a large selection of modern dishes, including the eye fillet with wet polenta, shallots, mushrooms and garlic, a superbly cooked risotto of pumpkin and coriander with charred asparagus and mascarpone or the half a corn-fed chicken with green wheat, herbs and trussed tomatoes. For dessert, chocolate lovers will be thrilled

NEW MENU AVAILABLE – FOOD SERVED ALL DAY

Orchestra opener next week As a soloist, he has performed at numerous festivals including the Guitar Festival of Great Britain, WOMAD and arts festivals both here and overseas. He regularly performs with his brother Leonard and is a founding member of Saffire – The Australian Guitar Quartet. Grigoryan is also the artistic director of the Adelaide International Guitar Festival. Since his Australian debut in 2008 with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, conductor Alexander Shelley has been a regular visitor to Australia. Among his many conducting highlights, this season marks his debut with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, the Royal Liverpool Phiharmonic and his North American debut with the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa. Last year he took up the role as principal conductor of the Nuernberger Symphoniker. For more than 70 years, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra has been performing concerts in Geelong and regional Victoria to great acclaim. In 2010, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra’s Geelong series features five concerts throughout the year, showcasing a variety of Australian and international talent: Tickets are priced between $42-$84 for the performance and are available by phoning 5225 1200. For more information on the orchestra, visit www.mso.com.au

THE MELBOURNE Symphony Orchestra opens its 2010 Geelong season with Australia’s favourite guitar virtuoso, Slava Grigoryan, performing Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez next week. Costa Hall will play host to the performance at 8pm on Friday, March 19, with the programme, conducted by English rising star Alexander Shelley, featuring Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story and concluding with Ravel’s Bolero, made famous by ’80s ice skating duo, Torvill and Dean. One of the best known works for guitar, Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez was featured in the film Brassed Off starring Ewan McGregor, in an arrangement for brass band that was cheekily referred to as ‘Concerto d’Orangejuice’. The original work for guitar and orchestra took its inspiration from the gardens of the Palacio Real de Aranjuez. A modern take on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story has proved to be enduringly popular both as a film and as musical theatre. The Symphonic Dances is a delightful concert snapshot evoking some of the popular melodies from the musical, including Maria, Somewhere and Cool. One of Australia’s most loved performers, Slava Grigoryan has appeared with many of the world’s leading orchestras, including the London Philharmonic, the Halle Orchestra and all of the major Australian orchestras.

Sounds of Spain come to Winchelsea IF YOU love anything Spanish, particularly the country’s music, then head to Barwon Park Mansion on Sunday. The mansion, just outside of Winchelsea, is holding a concert at 2pm to fill the senses with Spanish solos, duets and live flamenco dancing. The ’Mainly Spanish’ concert will include classic music featuring Max Cooke and Darryl Coote from the Team of Pianists and the brilliant young star, Kevin Suherman, playing Spanish piano solos with influences from the gypsies and the moors. Three vibrant flamenco dancers – Nella Randone, Kieren Ray and Laura Uhe – will be there adding excitement, along with a tad of arrogance and sparkle. The Victorian-era Barwon Park Mansion, a National Trust of Australia property, will be open for visitors attending the concert with afternoon tea, both included in the cost of $38 for adults, concession tickets $20. Barwon Park, a majestic 42-room bluestone mansion, is one of the grandest homes in western Victoria, with its delicate iron lacework and the magnificent staircase just two of its impressive features. The ‘Mainly Spanish’ concert will be held in the enclosed courtyard first used as a ballroom for the housewarming celebration to mark the completion of the mansion in 1871. The concert, held at Barwon Park, 105 Inverleigh Road, Winchelsea, will start at 2pm. For information and bookings phone Barwon Park on 5267 2209 or the Team of Pianists on 9527 2851.

Aireys festival set to rock

Tuesday 9 March 2010

BY NATHAN HALE MORE than 120 acts have been confirmed for this weekend’s three-day Aireys Inlet Open Mic Festival. The massive response has come as a welcome surprise to organiser, Marty Maher, who has seen the festival grow enormously in just three years. “It has been an unbelievable response,” Maher admitted. “We had 50 acts the first year over three stages, then last year that went to 86 on four stages and this year we have 125 performers and seven stages.” Maher began the festival in 2008 with the vision of allowing musicians of all abilities a stage to perform on. Performers are given 30-minute slots, a short format which adds to the uniqueness – and popularity – of the event. “It’s a very entertaining format as you have one act on for 30 minutes and as soon as they

finish another one follows straight away,” Maher said. “This means there is lots of fastmoving action and never a break. “If you go to a venue and see someone and you are not that keen on them, you don’t have to wait long to see someone you like or you pop to another stage and then come back. “We have found that the format is very popular.” Last year more than 1,500 people attended the event – which remains free (although a gold coin donation would be appreciated) – and Maher is hoping to push the 3,000 visitor mark this weekend. Harmonica school Apart from the plethora of acts on show, a feature of the festival will be the Harmonica School, to be hosted by Justin Brady from the band, Things of Stone and Wood. Brady is recognised as one of Australia’s best harmonica players and instrumentalists, and he will show people of all ages how to

play the harmonica in a fun and relaxing environment. The school will be held on Sunday morning from 9am-11am at the Sanctuary Stage – with Brady demonstrating the finer points of the harmonica for the first 90 minutes before inviting his ‘pupils’ on stage for a performance to end the school. Special mystery guest The festival will also unveil an icon of Australian music on Sunday. The identity of the mystery guest will be kept secret until the performance at 3pm on Sunday at the Aireys Inlet Hotel band marquee – but it is safe to say the performer is a household name throughout the country – with hits in Australia and overseas. See Pages 13 and 14 for a full programme of performers. For more information, including links to hear some of the artists who will be appearing, visit www. aireysinlet.com.au

TREVOR HUGHES FROM ALLSPARK ELECTRICAL SERVICE

POLITE, hard working and honest are the compliments that electrician Trevor Hughes finds he receives most from customers. For the past six months, the Surf Coast electrician has been running his own business after spending the past 11 years in the industry. He had originally worked in and around Fairhaven but has recently moved to Jan Juc, which has allowed him to visit clients anywhere along the Surf Coast. Hughes specialises in all types of domestic electrical work. “I use the best materials and always do the job

100 per cent without cutting corners,â€? he said. Hughes’ customers also appreciate his approach to cleanliness. “I’ve been taught right from my first day as an apprentice to get the vacuum out or dust pan‌ it’s not very good when tradies leave a mess behind,â€? he said. Born and bred in Fairhaven, Howard is also the son of the renowned surfer, Howard Hughes. When not at work, he is usually found surfing at his favourite spot at Fairhaven. For more information, phone Trevor Hughes on 0402 435 300.

MAR 9 -MAR 15 2010 Communication is the Capricorn buzzword this week. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeling frazzled from a long hard day at the office (followed by peak hour gridlock) avoid the temptation to take it out on loved ones. Use your clever Capricorn mind in constructive ways via reading, writing, studying, and stimulating conversation.

Mighty Mars moves forward this week so youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re set to get your mojo back. And, with flirty Venus in your sign, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be at your amorous best as you attract admirers like bees to a honey pot. Attached Aries â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to pamper your partner with plenty of TLC. Watch out world â&#x20AC;&#x201C; risquĂŠ Rams are ready to rumble!

Is money too tight to mention? Mars has been reversing through your $$$ zone since December but, from Thursday onwards, it moves forwards again. So your financial situation should start to improve. And, with Venus in your career zone, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a fabulous time to have fun on the job and socialise with workmates.

Librans love to be in love. You dream of a blissful partnership where you are madly in love 24/7. However, real relationships go through tough times when hard work is required and romance is thin on the ground. Wake up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this week is one of those times when there is a large gap between fantasy and reality!

Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to take the rough with the smooth in relationships this week. Family and friends will be difficult to communicate with, which may activate your jealous and possessive side. The more you hold onto loved ones, the more they will try to escape your tenacious Taurean grip. Learn to relax and let go.

Attention all languishing Lions â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have you lost your lust for life? Do you feel as if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been treading water over the last few months? Mighty Mars powers forwards again this week â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in your sign â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so the pace will pick up, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll feel back on track again. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to crash through challenges with confidence and chutzpah.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full steam ahead at work from Thursday onwards, as Mars releases the brakes on stalled professional projects, and your motivation returns. Indulging in jealous outbursts and possessive behaviour will get you nowhere fast on Friday. Remember Scorpio â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there is a big difference between loving and smothering.

Aquarians are impulsive creatures but spontaneous spending sprees could land you in a heap of trouble. With extravagant Jupiter and reckless Uranus in your money zone, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re inclined to buy now (and regret later!) If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re smart youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll avoid internet shopping, be financially disciplined â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and hide your credit card!

Work issues take centre stage. Imagination is your greatest ally and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find the more confident and creative you are, the more professional success youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll generate. Your inspiration for the week comes from birthday great, Albert Einstein â&#x20AC;&#x153;Logic will get you from A to B. Imagination will take you everywhere.â&#x20AC;?

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lose your sense of perspective â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially when it comes to relationships. If you allow your obsessive/compulsive side to take over, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just end up making mountains out of molehills. Saturday is a fabulous day for business negotiations, joint ventures, intellectual discussions and shared creative projects.

Archers are adventurous, restless souls but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find home is where the heart is this week. Take the time to chill out and relax with friends and family â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or to finish all those DIY projects that you started so enthusiastically many moons ago! If you mix friends and finances, you could have a fiasco on your hands on Friday.

With no less than five planets visiting your sign (including lucky Jupiter) get ready for a large dose of Pisces Power. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to be a feisty Fish as you take charge of your life and steer it in a positive new direction. Your motto for the week is from fellow Piscean, Steve Irwin â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whatever you want to do in this world, it is achievable.â&#x20AC;?

Mannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best score

Torquayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Harrison Mann takes on Snapper Rocks

TORQUAYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S Harrison Mann scored his best national result at the Quiksilver King of the Groms event which ran in conjunction with the Quiksilver Pro on the Gold Coast last week. Taj Burrow, 31, took out the Gold Coast competition over Jordy Smith, 22, in one-metre waves, while Steph Gilmore won the Roxy Pro,

with her sights set on a fourth championship. The opening event of the 2010 ASP World Tour season started the year off with a bang, bringing the greatest assemblage of surfing talent in history to one of the most iconic pointbreaks in the world, and the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best surfers shattered high-performance barriers once again.

Surfed at the world famous Snapper Rocks in front of large crowds, Mann pushed the limits surfing a super powerful semi and final but fell just short placing second to Sydney surfer, Cooper Chapman, in the final. Third place went to the highly touted grom, Creed McTaggart, from Western Australia.

Mann has continually proved himself against the best in the country in his age group and a big win at national level appears just around the corner. The next stop on the 2010 ASP World Tour will be the Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach from March 30 through to April 10.

WITH TORQUAY BOWLS CLUB

FOR THE past five Thursday evenings (two nights washed out) at the Torquay Bowls Club 20 teams numbering 60 ‘rookie bowlers’ have competed to ascertain which team would win the Rookies bowls competition for 2010 sponsored by Alcoa Australia’s Aluminium. As in the past nine years, all participants enjoyed the competition, showing good fellowship. The standard of bowling has been good, and the club is hopeful that a number of the ‘rookies’ will in time see their way clear to play and enjoy bowls. Following two nights of competition and a knockout competition on the last night, there were two undefeated teams and they played off for the honour of being the winners for 2010. The two teams reaching the final were Master Apprentices (a team from Alcoa) and a local team, Wingnuts, led by the golf club’s president, Greg Libbis. The final was a good game of bowls with Wingnuts obtaining three shots on the last end to narrowly win. The standard of bowls played on the quick greens was quite good. The winning team consisted of Greg Libbis, Justin Brady and Sean Mackay, while the runners up consisted of Joel King, Cameron Ingles and Craig Allen. The Torquay Bowls Club is keen to encourage new members. Anyone interested in joining the club is requested to contact the club on 5261 2378, or call in personally at the club on Wednesday evenings when Twilight Bowls is held. Visitors are welcome at the club any time. The club is licensed and has the best views in Torquay being situated in Taylor Park, on The Esplanade. The Bowls Club is extremely grateful to Alcoa Australia’s Aluminium for their sponsorship and support of the club and especially the Rookies and Twilight Bowls.

The Jan Juc Surf Life Saving Club women’s boat crew in New Zealand.

Super surf hits Jan Juc team BY SARAH LAWRENCE HUGE waves of up to five meters were all for part of the challenge for the Jan Juc boat crew in New Zealand. A men and women’s crew went over for the Days of Giants trans-Tasman surf boat challenge two weeks ago. Out of the 14 women’s teams, the Jan Juc girls

took out the top prize. It was the first time a female Jan Juc team had gone over and the first time in three years the competition allowed the women’s events to go ahead without them being cancelled due to dangerous surf conditions. The women’s team included Melissa Russell, Scarlett Blewett (Woolami), Shea Grant, Lara Jeffery with sweep Scott Tannahill. In the men’s division, it was the fifth time they

had visited New Zealand and for the past two years they had won against 40 other teams. “On the Saturday it was the Piha Big Wave Classic and that’s the event the crew has won two times in a row,” Tannahill said. “We went in as defending champs faced with four to five-metre waves. Then in the semi final we were hit by a four-metre wave so it knocked us out of the event so to speak.”

Premier bowls event this week TORQUAY Bowls Club will host its annual Surf Coast Classic Invitation Fours event tomorrow and Thursday. The Surf Coast Classic is recognised as one of the region’s premier bowls events and attracts some of the best bowlers from Melbourne and Geelong, as well as Victorian regional centres such as Ballarat, Warrnambool and Kilmore. Formerly called the Surf Coast Masters, the

classic is an invitation only event, meaning that only top quality bowlers are in attendance. Teams of four will compete over two days for a share of more than $3,000 in prizemoney. One of the event’s founding organisers, Mac Smith, said spectators can expect to see some top level bowling over the two days. “Anyone who wants to see a top field of bowlers battle it out on Torquay’s beautiful

greens is welcome to come along for a look,” said Smith. “The classic regularly attracts state level and Melbourne Premier League players. Last year the winning team was skipped by Nathan Bush, a Victorian State player.” For more information, phone president Geoff Grigg on 0400 060 533 or visit www.torquaybowls.com

WATER, water everywhere. That was the scene on Friday night when the course resembled a lake. Greens and fairways were under water while over 50mm of rain was dumped on the course. The good news is the supply to the dams was replenished. The tragedy is that valuable water being sought for storage on the course has just gone out to sea. Wednesday’s event was Stableford with a CCR of 69. Greg Baeck with 41 points won div 1 from Wayne Olney 40. Don Lyne with 40 won div 2 on c/b from Peter Edwards.

With lightning in the vicinity, there was no point in taking unnecessary risks. Unfortunately for some of the morning players who had good scores, their scores will not be recognised. Anyone with scores they would like to forget has had a reprieve. The March monthly medal, the junior quarterly medal, best gross trophy and 1st round of the President’s Cup will be played Saturday, March 13.

fishing My Big Catch proudly sponsored by:

BY GARRY KERR

LATELY it has come to my attention that illegal fishing seems to be more prevalent within our community. The following extracts are just some of the press releases from fisheries and it seems that of late more and more incidents are happening within our community. The information regarding fishing regulations is available from most good tackle stores and fisheries themselves have their own website setting out these regulations, so there is no excuse for anyone not to abide by these regulations, regardless of who you are or from where you come. I suggest everyone who is not up to date \ with current regulations takes the effort to bring themselves up to date. And if you feel you see illegal practices taking place don’t be afraid to ring 13 FISH and report it. Here are the media releases: Heavy fines for illegal netting at Carrum Beach Two men and two women from Noble Park have now been fined a total of $20,000 in the Frankston Magistrates Court for possessing illegal (commercial) fishing equipment and fish taken in contravention of the Fisheries Act. Hien Nguyen, 46, Van Linh Phan, 52, Cau Thi Huynh, 49, and Thi Hoa Dang, 41, were intercepted by Fisheries Officers and Police on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway in June last year after a call to the 13 FISH reporting line.

Abalone thieves forfeit car and diving equipment Deceptive and illegal conduct cost three abalone thieves $5,500 in fines and the forfeiture of a car and diving equipment in the Colac Magistrate Court. North Melbourne couple, Young Lee, 46, and Manhong Lu, 55, and an East Bentleigh man, Jinlian Cai, 45, pleaded guilty to a number of abalone offences including using commercial abalone equipment to take a combined total of 155 blacklip abalone, taking more than twice the catch limit and taking undersize abalone Trafficking abalone Friday the 13th proved unlucky for a Rye man when he was caught trafficking a commercial quantity of blacklip abalone in February last year. Richard Lee McIntyre was convicted and fined $5,000 in the Frankston Magistrates Court and prohibited from recreational fishing for three years. Father and son caught A father and his 11-year-old son were apprehended by fishery officers for allegedly stealing abalone in the Mordialloc area on Friday, February 26. The 33-year-old Clayton South man was observed wearing a mask and snorkel ‘duck diving’ over a known abalone area. After diving for about 90 minutes, it is alleged the man handed a catch bag containing 238 shucked (shell removed) abalone to his son.

WELCOME to this monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Travel Talk. Firstly, a big congratulations to the Ocean Grove office for winning this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Harvey World Travel Office of the Year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonderful achievement by Lesley and the girls. It is a great sign when all three offices have been flat out making bookings for the forthcoming year. Europe and the United Kingdom seem to be the hot destinations at present with still plenty of interest in the group departures to Canada and Alaska â&#x20AC;&#x201C; no doubt the ultimate in luxury travelling â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with breathtaking scenery, wildlife and magnificent hotels.

Travel tips With many people travelling this year I thought it might be a good chance to share just a few travel tips with you. For those fortunate enough to be spreading your wings and venturing overseas, then of course the first thing you require is a current passport. Please make sure you have at least six months validity from the time of your return date. Make sure you show your travel consultant so that they can check all details thoroughly and take copies for you. It is a good idea to have perhaps three spare copies of your passport and keep these in separate areas of your luggage or hand luggage; if your passport does get misplaced or stolen then it makes like easier at the relevant consulate to be replaced. Check carefully with your travel agent as to what countries you are travelling to and as to what visas you may require. Your agent can advise you of these requirements and even apply for the necessary visas for you â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it all saves you a lot of hassle and worry. When travelling overseas, especially to a remote or exotic location, you should always check with your local GP or even the nearby medical centre for what

inoculations you may need before travelling. Some medications need to be administered days or even weeks before travelling, so make sure you give yourself plenty of time to research this. We are very lucky here on the Bellarine Peninsula we have an excellent medical centre at Leopold. Always ask your travel agent about travel insurance, it is one of those necessary evils, I always say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;if you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford the travel insurance, then you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to travelâ&#x20AC;?! Some travel insurances are included on your credit cards now, please read and understand these benefits carefully, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all good. If you are unsure of anything, please ask your professional travel consultant. Always have your travel insurance details with you when travelling, and like your passports have extra copies hidden away in your luggage, just in case. Travelling has been made easier these days with the wonderful addition of wheels on cases. How did we travel without them? When choosing your luggage make sure the cases you purchase have wheels to save those back aches, and perhaps look for a different colour or tie a ribbon or have some sort of identification showing so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get mistaken and confused with so many cases or bags going around the turnstile all looking the same! Most times your travel agent can get the same or better deals than you can on the net; they have had years of experience in travelling to all parts of the world and within Australia. Keep in mind there are still spaces left for the forthcoming group trips this coming year. Please feel free to pop in and see any of the friendly and professional staff at Harvey World Travel Drysdale, Ocean Grove and Leopold. Happy and safe travels.
