GOOD TO GO? VCAT date to decide the fate of proposed supermarket for Portarlington

BY ALISON MARTIN PLANS for a $6million full-line supermarket in Portarlington have been put on hold while two objectors take their views to VCAT. However, developer Goldstrike Developments is confident all concerns have been addressed in the City of Greater Geelong’s planning process and the supermarket will go ahead as soon as objections have been considered by the appeals tribunal. Goldstrike director, David McIntosh, said the supermarket would provide an option for local residents who were currently travelling to Drysdale or further afield for regularly shopping needs.

Surf Forecast

“We’ve always had the support of the community and we are keen to work with objectors to make sure we can start construction – which will take nine to 10 months – as soon as possible,” McIntosh said. “By building a 1600-square metre full-line supermarket we can retain business in Portarlington, residents will spend their money here and we can create up to 50 jobs.” McIntosh said the new supermarket would have a safe loading zone on the opposite side to the laneway and parking access – as per the advice of council. As a condition of the permit, the developer will also pay all costs to install pedestrian islands at both ends of the Brown Street block, plant trees along

the street and create 52 parking spaces, including 12 on-site. Portarlington Business Development Association chair, John Rae, supported the economic growth which would be created by the supermarket project. He said the jobs that would be available would provide a chance for the young people of Portarlington to earn income through part-time work. Portarlington resident, Lorraine Stokes, also threw her support behind the new supermarket, adding it would be great to have it operating for the next Christmas rush. “Even though we have two small supermarkets in Portarlington, we all tend to shop at larger

supermarkets out of town,” she said. “The new supermarket will provide more variety, create employment, open longer hours and ensure prices will be competitive. “It’s an ideal location. People will be able to park in Fenwick Street, go to the post office, go to the chemist, go to the butchers and go to the supermarket for everything you need.” McIntosh said there had been a lot of interest, but an operator had not been confirmed to date. The supermarket application will go to a VCAT hearing on July 20. If VCAT endorses council’s approval, the developer expects to have the supermarket open by July 2011.

Equathon’s special guest PENTAHLON Victoria president and Australia’s most successful female pentathlete, Kitty Chiller, will present medals at this year’s Bellarine Equathon on Sunday. Entries for the second Bellarine Equathon have been extended for local entrants to compete in the high profile event. However, individual competitors or teams planning to enter must contact equathon organiser, Beverley Darby, as soon as possible to register. The equathon is a three-event competition consisting of a swimming event at Ocean Grove’s Bellarine Aquatic Centre, followed by show jumping and cross country running at Drysdale’s Lake Lorne Reserve. Darby said the first stage for competitors was a swim over the designated distance for their age group and they would receive a time. “The competitor then completes a round of show jumping, the time is then added to the swimming time. The order of running in the last section of the event is according to the time placing after the first two phases – the leader starting first,� she said. “This means it is a ‘chase run’, with the position over the line in the run being the final placing.� The equathon event, which was held on the Bellarine for the first time last year, has been devised as a development sport for the Modern Pentathlon, which includes these three sports plus air pistol shooting and epee, or fencing. The Bellarine Equathon will be hosted under the auspice of Modern Pentathlon Victoria on Sunday, with registration at 8am at Drysdale Leopold Pony Club at Lake Lorne Reserve. Warm up for the swim event at Ocean Grove will begin at 9am and swim heats start at 9.30am. Competitors will then return to Drysdale for the run and show jumping, with times subject to change. Any competitor who has not already registered must contact Darby 0410 547 391 after 7pm, or for further information, visit www.pentathlon.org.au

Liberal candidate for Bellarine, Kurt Reiter, is hoping for a large crowd at next week’s public forum to provide an accurate indication of demand and support for a Bellarine Ferry.

Reiter calls ferry forum BY ALISON MARTIN

OPPOSITION Minister for Public Transport and Roads, Terry Mulder, will join next week’s public forum to address the future of the Bellarine Ferry proposal. Liberal candidate for Bellarine, Kurt Reiter, has called the town-hall style meeting to discuss and debate the benefits and views on the establishment of a commuter ferry from Portarlington to Melbourne. As the Bellarine population grows and the traffic snarl through Geelong continues to

Solar Power Installation

increase for Melbourne commuters, community calls for a ferry as a means of public transport have increased. “The Bellarine Ferry will affect all of the Bellarine and is not just a policy for residents of Portarlington to consider,� Reiter said. “If it progresses it will be an economic, tourism and transport policy of scale and scope previously unseen in the Bellarine. “The format will be similar to the highly successful St Leonards forum, held to discuss the planned Liberal overhaul of the Bellarine Bayside Foreshore Committee.�

The ferry meeting will be held at Parks Hall, which has a 350-person capacity, and all members of the public will have an opportunity to raise and discuss issues directly with Reiter. “I will also be joined by members of the Bellarine Ferry Group who will be on hand to provide technical information and provide accurate plans about the Ferry project,� Reiter said. The Bellarine Ferry Forum will be held on Wednesday, June 2 at 7pm and the event will be webcast, the following day, at www.kurtreiter. com for any local residents unable to attend.

QUEENSCLIFF and Point Lonsdale groups and individuals have shared in almost $10,000 of community grants awarded last week. The Queenscliff Point Lonsdale Community Enterprise has been raising and distributing funds for community projects for 12 months. The latest round of grants included $2,000 to assist the Queenscliffe Bowls, Tennis and Croquet Association in funding improved access and security for the tennis courts. The local Uniting Church congregation received $1,950 for a water fountain and bike racks to be used by the public and Friends of the Marine Discovery Centre was awarded $1,500 to help fund a snorkelling programme for all Grade 5 and 6 students in the Borough of Queenscliffe. Point Lonsdale Boardriders Club

received $1,350 to purchase a rescue board and Queenscliff Primary School was given $544 to assist with further improvements to the environment precinct. Queenscliff Football-Netball Club was presented with $1,676 for a large barbecue to be used by the netballers, but also available for other local clubs and community groups at no cost when not required by the club. Enterprise partners include Bendigo Bank and Geelong Community Telco, which contribute profits to the fund, with additional cash sponsorship from GMHBA. The community enterprise encourages the growth and enhancement of the Queenscliff and Point Lonsdale communities and funds are distributed through a transparent application and selection process.

A shed to be shared THERE is a great opportunity for men who don’t have a shed in their backyard to enjoy all the pleasures at Queenscliffe Neighbourhood House. The new beachside neighbourhood house in Tobin Street has a workshop ready and waiting for local men to get together with other blokes and share a shed. Men can show their woodworking skills, restore old bikes, share tools and skills, swap stories, have a cuppa and do whatever they choose.

A Men’s Shed Information Night is being held on Wednesday, June 16, from 7pm to 9.30pm. Barwon South West Men’s Shed cluster co-ordinator, Ron Mitchell, will present information and a tour of the shed’s facilities will be offered. Any men interested in attending can contact the Queenscliffe Neighbourhood House at 3 Tobin Drive, next to the Pilot’s jetty, phone 5258 3367.

Bendigo Bank Queenscliff branch manager, Howard Deane, is proud of the financial contribution the community enterprise has been able to share with local groups and individuals.

Hayes said guest speakers at the charity event would include Bill Rebula and Graeme Robertson, from the Prosate Cancer Foundation of Australia, who would be discussing “Is

Funding will be made available for detailed designs for the pavilion at Shell Road Reserve to accommodate the Ocean Grove football, netball, cricket and soccer clubs, in line with the sporting facilities masterplan. The local neighbourhood house will be expanded to include two

The ward budget will allocate $25,000 to the Bellarine Youth Action Team and the Ocean Grove-Barwon Heads park and ride service will receive a $10,000 contribution. A new footbridge linking Collendina Reserve and Bonnyvale Road will be built and Ocean Grove Carols by Candlelight has been allocated $10,000.

Bellarine Community Health’s Denise Heathcote, pictured with Betty from Indented Head, is encouraging local residents to receive free deaf awareness training next month.

Breaking down the barriers

BELLARINE Community Health, in partnership with Vicdeaf will present free awareness training next month. The Ocean Grove training will aim to provide the wider Bellarine community, organisations, businesses, schools and services with information about deaf people.

His parents, grandparents and seven siblings are deaf. He is currently information officer at Vicdeaf and has been involved with the society for 24 years in various roles.

Celtic celebration

LAST Friday’s official launch of the National Celtic Festival provided a taste of the fabulous entertainment and culture which will be presented in Portarlington over the long weekend in June. A proud festival director, Una McAlinden, announced the success and growth of the popular event which attracts thousands of people to the Bellarine each year – and will this year bring the Irish Embassy. McAlinden said her ambition for the festival is to see it grow to the magnitude of the Edinburgh Tattoo. And with the increasing support of community and sponsors: it could well!

Two of the girls from the Bhan Tre trio, Rebecca Humphreys and Geraldine Davis. Bhan Tre entertained guests at the National Celtic Festival official launch at the Ol’ Duke on Friday night.

National Celtic Festival volunteers, Elise Clements and Rene Souery, celebrate the success of the upcoming event of ‘all things Celtic’.

City of Greater Geelong councillor Jan Farrell and The Potato Shed’s Rob MacLeod share a laugh before the ‘Ode to the Haggis’ at the National Celtic Festival launch.

National Celtic Festival volunteers, Tina Elms and Valda King, have been vital supporters of the rapidly growing annual event for many years.

Guests at the official National Celtic Festival launch were welcomed at the Ol’ Duke with bagpipes.

Programme’s fitting finale community which they enthusiastically share with others. Contact the borough on 5258 1377 or visit www. queenscliffe.vic.gov.au for more Sea of Words information.

THE GRAND finale for Queenscliff’s Sea of Words will be the presentation of Dimboola by the Lighthouse Theatre Group over the next few weeks. Borough of Queenscliffe arts access officer, Leanne Stein, said the Sea of Words literary celebration had been a huge success and the many activities and events had been well supported by the Bellarine community. The classic play, Dimboola, has been described as a “rumbustious celebration of the wedding of Morrie McAdam to Reen Delaney where the drinks have flowed a little too freely; mayhem and humour ensues”. Dimboola will be presented on May 28 and 29, June 4, 5, 11 and 12, with tickets available at the Queenscliff Visitor Information Centre or by phoning 5258 4843. The information centre also has copies of five diverse Sea of Words maps which feature local sites and the experiences or memories of members of the

Reiter says no to wind farms WIND farms on the Bellarine Peninsula could be ruled out if the Liberal-National Coalition gains power at the 2010 State Election. Liberal Party candidate for Bellarine, Kurt Reiter, said the coalition would “specifically protect the Bellarine Peninsula from wind farm placement, bringing certainty and fairness to the local community, business and industry”. “Regional Victoria, including the Bellarine, will be subject to more than 2,500 turbines currently proposed by various wind farm companies,” Reiter

said. “Eight wind farms, with a total of 266 turbines, already operate in Victoria and information from the Department of Primary Industries shows the Labor Government has already approved another 20 wind farms, with a total of 850 turbines. “A further 28 wind farms, with a total of 996 turbines, are being planned by various wind farm companies, for regional Victoria.” Reiter said allowing wind farms in the Bellarine will cost jobs, tourist investment and property

values for residents, as well as impact negatively on our way of life. He said the coalition’s policy would give power back to communities to decide whether wind farms could be built in areas like the Bellarine, and will protect sensitive environments throughout regional Victoria with the introduction of no-go zones. “A Baillieu government will also establish new guidelines relating to the construction and operation of wind energy facilities to monitor noise and strobe lighting impacts on nearby residents as well as

shadow flicker and bird kills at wind farm sites,” Reiter said. “The Coalition supports the development of the renewable energy sector as an important contributor to the sustainable delivery of Victoria’s future energy needs. “Our wind energy plan is fair and reasonable and will provide certainty to operators, while at the same time minimise the effect of wind farms on our natural environment and ensure that our coastal landscapes are protected.”

News in brief Students ride the storytime train TO CELEBRATE Education Week 260 primary school students from Portarlington and selected Geelong primary schools embarked on an exciting adventure on the unique Shine and Discover Rail Trip. Students travelled in heritage train carriages from Drysdale to historic Queenscliff while listening to six story-tellers. The programme aimed to highlight literacy and learning, by engaging children with fascinating stories. The Shine and Discover Rail Trip, now in its third consecutive year, is an initiative of the Geelong Regional Library Corporation and funded by the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development.

THIS week’s information night at Bellarine Secondary College’s Ocean Grove campus will showcase quality facilities and educational opportunities available to students going into Year 7 in 2011. Academic excellence and the development of positive values are two key focuses of the school community and student achievements at all levels continue to demonstrate those priorities. The college offers a comprehensive, innovative curriculum across its two campuses, with Year 7 to 8 classes at Ocean Grove and Year 9 to 12 at Drysdale. BSC is also involved in a broad range of programmes from sports to annual stage productions. The college has a strong focus on building the leadership skills of students through the Student

Government, student forums, leadership camps and community service activities including Relay for Life. A large number of VCE, VCAL, VET and School Based Apprenticeship subjects are catered for. Students can participate in specialist courses not available at other regional secondary schools. College principal, Colin Sing, believes the safe, supportive environment at both campuses is vital. “Our goal is to provide students with opportunities and encouragement to realise their potential in academic studies, physical, cultural and social development,� he said. “This provides them with sound preparation for the transition from school to broader society. Parents and prospective students are encouraged to attend the information evening on Thursday from

Top award for volunteer LONG-STANDING Barwon Health volunteer, Cor Horsten, was earlier this month rewarded for his selfless contribution towards local health services. Horsten was awarded the Outstanding Individual Achievement Award for the Regional Health Services category. He was presented with his award by Health Minister Hon Daniel Andrews at a gala function to celebrate the 2010 Minister for Health Volunteer Awards. Horsten volunteers 33 hours per week coordinating Barwon Health’s McKellar Centre Woodwork Group; he has held this role for the past nine years. Barwon Health chief executive, Dr David Ashbridge, said Horsten’s ongoing commitment to the community is outstanding, the care and passion he continually displays, and his incomparable

enthusiasm to be involved and to lead by example. Volunteers help both staff and patients and everyday life around Barwon Health would be difficult without the help of our outstanding volunteers. “Cor Horsten is a credit to Barwon Health and his nine years with us show his dedication to helping other people expresses how much of an asset he is to staff and the people of our community,” Ashbridge said. The Volunteer Awards aim to celebrate volunteering and its significant contribution to public healthcare in Victoria as well as recognise the individuals and teams who demonstrate outstanding dedication and commitment. For more information on joining the Barwon Health volunteering team, phone Maree Dertien on 5226 7195.

Cor Horsten accepts his award from Daniel Andrews at the ceremony.

Help give children the best chance THE ROYAL Institute for Deaf and Blind Children (RIDBC) has launched its annual May appeal to help improve the lives of deaf children and blind children. Reflecting on children – who through no fault of their own have been dealt with life’s more difficult circumstances – could help give hope and purpose to children with impaired hearing or vision, according to the institute. Research has shown that the earlier a blind or deaf child receives expert help, the better their chances are in life. RIDBC hopes its May appeal will be bigger than ever this year as the charity celebrates its 150th

anniversary. The official birthday is October 22 but merchandise is on sale and in limited stock this month. RIDBC helps children like Natalija, who at ten months of age was diagnosed with total blindness caused by a large brain tumour that grew behind her eyes and forced surgeons to cut her optic nerves. Natalija’s mum, Meri-Jade Lambert, said she and her husband were shocked by Natalija’s illness, particularly as doctors kept telling her that everything was fine. “Natalija’s illness totally turned our world upside down. The tumour was the size of a

grapefruit in her tiny head and she spent more than three months in intensive care,” Lambert said. “But saving your child’s life is something any mother would do.” Natalija’s mum praised the hard work of staff at RIDBC who helped Natalija, now six years old get a head start in life and at school. Natalija, who attended the VisionEd Preschool at the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children’s North Rocks campus, started learning braille and computer skills at the age of two. “I don’t care what Tali does. But I know that because of RIDBC she now has the chance to become anything she wants,” Lambert said.

Now the couple are optimistic about Natalija’s future, they thank organisations like the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children, who provide invaluable help to families like the Lamberts. “I hope donations to RIDBC are as generous as the RIDBC has been to us,” Mrs Lambert said. For more information or to donate to the Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children, phone 1800 043 411 or visit www.ridbc.org.au

Lorne nurses step up the service BY ELEANOR WOODS NURSES at Lorne Community Hospital are now able to give patients better services in the absence of doctors. Senior nurse, Helen Lawrie, is one of three nurses who have completed the Rural and Isolated practice Nurse Course. The 12-month qualification gives nurses the authority to offer a higher capacity of care. “In some rural areas there aren’t always doctors on hand,� she said. “This course means we now have a more advanced level of education and can give patients a clinical assessment, know what needs to be done and do it.� The course is being run in conjunction with a submission to parliament to change the Drugs and Poisons Act to enable some nurses to supply some medication in the absence of a doctor. “It is ridiculous when someone comes in and we know they have got an ear infection but we can’t treat them. We have to send them packing to Geelong,� Lawrie said.

“Like all rural areas we have struggled to find doctors. That’s when the nurses stepped it up.� To add to the Rural and Isolated Nurses project, a further 20 nurses completed an Advanced Life Support Competency Course. “This means we can give certain emergency medicine in the absence of a doctor,� Lawrie said. The nurses are also able to use manual defibrillators and perform advanced airway management. The hospital’s doctors work on an on-call basis and must be within the Lorne township. “We are lucky here. If we need to we can call the doctor. But there are times when we shouldn’t need to because we can fix the situation ourselves,� Lawrie said. The Lorne Community Hospital offers a raft of services to the public, including health assessments, education programmes, counselling and support, dialysis, acute and urgent care as well as aged care. “We are so lucky to have this wonderful facility and so much state of the art equipment. I encourage people to come here to get well rather than trekking to Geelong,� Lawrie said.

Don’t be so soft – ICE is great in cold weather THAT’S right, ICE is perfect this time of year. But, no I am not referring to the cold stuff we see on our windscreens on a chilly morning or the ice pack we put on a muscle strain or hamstring injury. I am actually talking about Intense Cardio Exercise. Intense Cardio Exercise (ICE) is exactly what its name suggests – exercising at a high intensity. What are the advantages of a high intensity workout? There are actually quite a few benefits, including increased cardiovascular fitness, shorter workouts and best of all, burning off fat faster. By exercising at a high intensity (80-85 per cent of your maximum heart rate) you can actually burn

more calories in a shorter amount of time than exercising for longer at a lower intensity. This is great as it makes your cardio workouts more effective and you don’t need to stay outside too long while being exposed to the wind, rain and coldness of the winter months. In the past we have been told that exercising in the ‘fat burning zone’ is the best way to burn fat – (around 60-70 per cent of your maximum heart rate). It is true that by exercising at this lower intensity your use a greater percentage of fat calories as your major source of fuel. However, this is where the myth of the ‘fat

burning zone’ gets exposed when total calorie expenditure is taken into account. Even though a higher percentage of fat calories are used in low intensity exercise, we actually burn more total calories by exercising at a higher intensity which therefore burns more fat.

In summary, the longer you can exercise at a higher heart rate, the more calories you will burn off and the more fat you will lose. Remember to always seek medical advice if starting a new programme and don’t go too hard to early if you haven’t exercised in a while.

Fancy a career change? Why not? By LEANNE POCOCK from the Investment Banking Institute MONEY and security are essential elements of your life. There are many things that are beyond our control; the elements, life and death, taxes and the global economy. The growing uncertainty and complexity of protecting ourselves as an individual, a family or a business means that more people are turning to professional advisors to help them achieve certainty. As a result, the financial services industry is growing, particularly in a region like Geelong where job security is under threat and bad investment decisions have had a significant impact on the community. There is a perception that mining and agriculture make up the biggest part of the Australian economy and yet according to the Australia’s richest source of business information, IBISWorld, the financial services and insurance sector represents 7.9 per cent of the economy whereas mining is only 7.8 per cent and agriculture 2.5 per cent. A career change into a more stable and interesting sector of the economy may be just the kickstart you need to secure your financial future. The financial planning market is not just about financial advice, but includes ‘risk reduction’ using instruments like insurance to protect individuals and businesses. There is also a need for those qualified in financial services to join the banking and insurance sector which is part of the finance industry. The simple process of consultation enables us to manage the impact that external influences have on our lives. We understand that to get the greatest benefit we

consult a professional, whether it’s your health, your education or the local weather forecast, yet so many Australians are only just learning to apply the same process by consulting a specialist at the bank, insurance broker or financial planner. Seeking the advice of an experienced financial planner helps people to make informed decisions towards developing long-term financial security for themselves and their family. By understanding all of their needs, wants, financial objectives and economic influences, expert financial planning provide sensible strategies to build and protect investments, provide day-to-day management of finances, and ensure that their income and assets are protected. The reality is that whether you’re new to the workforce, a highly paid professional or approaching retirement, becoming an accredited financial planner will provide you with all of the necessary tools and advice needed to help realise short and long-term financial goals for both you and your clients. The key to achieving your financial security starts by planning your future and joining the financial services industry. To become qualified in the area you need a minimum level of education called a Diploma of Financial Services and have a desire to continue studying toward an Advanced Diploma. And to make life even better then Victorian and Federal Governments are offering subsidies to undertake training in the Diploma of Financial Services. You can become fully qualified for only $495. To learn more about the industry and your career potential, phone Investment Banking Institute in Geelong on 1300 669 786 or visit www.ibi.edu.au

Time to check your finances BY HUGH SUTTERBY WITH the end of financial year just around the corner, now is a great time to review your financial position and ensure you are making the most of any available tax effective strategies. End of financial year planning opportunities are different for everyone. It pays to seek professional advice to determine which strategy is best for you. Some of the more common strategies that should be considered: Boost your super savings and pay less tax via salary sacrifice Salary sacrifice essentially means putting part of your pre-tax income into your super and therefore paying less tax Claim a tax deduction on your super contributions For the self employed, by making personal contributions to super you may be able to claim a tax deduction to reduce your taxable income. Protect your family Prepaying your income protection not only provides peace of mind but generally allows the whole amount to be claimed as a tax deduction. Government co contribution - Take advantage of government concessions This could mean an extra $1,000 in your super account courtesy of the government. Boost your spouse’s super savings If you have a low income earning spouse, you can help to top up their retirement savings by

contributing to their super and reduce your income tax at the same time. For more information, phone Hugh Sutterby of Geelong Financial Group on 5229 2048. This material is current as at May 2010, but may be subject to change. It has been prepared without taking into account your objectives, financial situation or needs. Before making a decision based on this material, you should consider the appropriateness of the advice, having regard to your objectives, financial situation and needs.

Generation U – Because you are unique BY AARON KELLEHER-JONES, Bendigo Bank Financial Planner IN LIFE, people, governments and organisations are quick to categorise each other. If we can be labelled, we can be more easily understood and compared to others of a similar age group, background or level of education. Yet life is not like this anymore. While some people marry and have children at a young age, others focus on education and career.

Some will see the value in buying property, while others will use the share market and managed funds to grow their wealth. And for many of us, better managing the money we do have and making ends meet will always be the priority. None of this can neatly be categorised. Just because you’re officially a ‘baby boomer’ doesn’t mean you are ready for retirement. If you’re ‘Gen X’ you may not be at the peak of your earning potential or even ready to settle down. And if others call you ‘Gen Y’, that doesn’t mean

Local branches were well represented at the Bendigo Community Bank conference last week, with Mel (Anglesea), Damien (Lara) and Megan (Winchelsea and Anglesea) enjoying the cocktail party and dinner.

you can’t be financially savvy and already be setting yourself up for a more comfortable future, one where travel, job opportunities and other priorities happily co-exist. That’s the risk of putting labels on people and relying on demographics. We fail to recognise people’s unique ambitions, individual goals and personal circumstances. And it’s why our planning takes a unique approach when it comes to helping you with your money.

We won’t simply trot out the standard solutions. Instead we will talk with you, understand what you’re doing and what’s important to you. At Bendigo Bank, we call this ‘Generation U’. Over the coming weeks I will highlight some financial strategies and tips for those starting out, moving up, moving on and doing business, to help you reach your goals and aspirations. For more information, drop into Bendigo Bank at 17 Gilbert Street, Torquay, or email Aaron. Kelleher-Jones@bendigobank.com.au

Help at hand for carers MANY people in our community look after a family member or friend who is unable to live independently, but not everyone thinks of themselves as being a ‘carer’. If you are a carer, it is helpful to know you are not alone and support is available. Barwon Health Carer Respite and Carelink Services provide support to family carers by helping to plan and organise a break from caring, linking carers in with appropriate services, as well as providing support and information. Over the coming months carers can take advantage of a number of free education sessions to support carers in their caring role. These workshops will be presented by Carers Victoria. Each workshop is two hours in duration and will be held at Barwon Health Newcomb Community Health Centre.

Upcoming dates for carer training: SURVIVING CARER STRESS Thursday, June 24 Stress is part of everyday life and can build up over time. The stress of caring may affect you physically and emotionally. We will explore stress, what it means for you and suggest some options for reducing it. CARING FOR YOURSELF Thursday, July 8 Do you take better care of the person you are caring for than of yourself? If the answer is yes, you are invited to this workshop where we will explore why your health and wellbeing are important. We will also discuss and share strategies to help you care for yourself. IT’S OKAY TO BE ASSERTIVE Friday, July 9 Do you tend to say ‘yes’ to things just because you

We will look at the benefits of respite for both you and the person you care for. This may help you to feel better about taking a break.

have difficulty saying ‘no’? We will share strategies and ways to increase your assertive skills to enable you to say ‘no’ without feeling guilty. We will also look at some ideas that may help you to avoid conflict in your everyday interactions. REACTING DIFFERENTLY Friday, July 9 You cannot change the other person’s behaviour directly, but you can change how you respond. This workshop focuses on verbal challenges and body language, rather than physically challenging situations such as physical aggression and violence. This often influences how that person then reacts and can affect positive change in some instances. Responding differently in a way that makes you feel less vulnerable and more in control of the situation can have a positive effect on your own health and wellbeing as well as on those around you. RESPITE WITHOUT TEARS Thursday, July 15 Respite can take a variety of forms. In this session we will discuss the emotional and practical considerations (including potential barriers) when deciding to use respite.

CONTINUING BONDS Thursday, July 15 This workshop takes a commonsense approach to how relationships continue and adapt to changing circumstances even when one person is no longer able to actively participate due to brain injury, illness, personality change, cognitive decline or death. Relationships don’t end as a result of these life changing events but they do evolve. This workshop explores the changes, and how the relationship can help to sustain you in your caring role and beyond. CHANGE, LOSS AND MOVING FORWARD Friday, July 30 Changes wanted or unwanted are an inevitable part of caring. This session provides a safe environment to explore these changes and impacts and consider what we can do to move forward. IMPACT OF CARING Friday, August 6 Caring has emotional and physical impacts that are often unrecognised. This workshop explores the differing impacts associated with caring.

Boost for Birregurra War Memorial BIRREGURRA’S War Memorial will receive an upgrade after the local district historical centre was given a $4,000 grant. The money will be used to help the centre upgrade the Birregurra War Memorial by installing a new plaque, restoring the lettering and installing new seating in memory of local servicemen of all conflicts. The Birregurra funding is one of 22 projects throughout the state to receive money towards improvements which honour the country’s servicemen and women. In all, more than $55,000 in funding has been allocated for the projects, said Minister for Veterans’ Affairs, Alan Griffin. Griffin said the funding would support local projects which commemorate our wartime history and honour those who have served, and continue to serve, Australia in wars, conflicts and peace operations. “Saluting Their Service grants provide funding to help communities build and maintain memorials, capture the wartime history of their towns and preserve memorabilia for future generations,” Griffin said. “Today’s funding has supported a range of initiatives across the country, including building new places of remembrance for communities, restoring and repairing

existing memorials and improving security at memorials. “Commemorative projects, such as those funded today, play a major role in encouraging Australians, young and old, to learn about our wartime heritage. “Community and ex-service organisations can also apply for funding to support significant anniversaries of wartime events.” This year marks some significant anniversaries for Australia, including the 95th anniversary of the Gallipoli Campaign, 65th anniversary of Victory in the Pacific as well as 50 years since the end of the Malayan Emergency and 60 years since the start of the Korean War. Many communities will be holding special ceremonies throughout the year marking these anniversaries. “Australian service has been a part of the history of every city and town across the country and through projects like those funded today, we can help ensure the contribution of our servicemen and women is remembered, and their sacrifice not forgotten,” Griffin said. Griffin encouraged local community and ex-service organisations interested in applying for funding to visit www.dva.gov.au/ grants or contact their nearest DVA office on 1800 555 254.

Keeping the community safe THE BELLARINE Police Community Support Register already ensures more than 3,000 local people feel safe and secure, but many more seniors could enjoy the benefits by completing a simple form. BPCSR committee chair, Phil Green, is concerned many Bellarine residents are not aware of the free register and do not understand the advantages of having their personal information recorded. The confidential register includes valuable data voluntarily provided by older people and those with disabilities living around the Bellarine Peninsula. “The information can be accessed by the police and other emergency services to assist approved authorities with information required during medical or other emergencies,” Green said. “The register provides quick access to the registrant’s nextof-kin contact information, medical records by listing the name of the doctor and the pharmacist and can detail ready access to the registrant’s home by recording the location of a house key. “Residents can provide relevant information about pets and their on-going care if their owner is absent due to an emergency.” Green said those registered could also request ongoing communication from volunteers through regular telephone calls, newsletters and other means of contact. Newsletters include tips and advice on securing homes and assistance for older people living on their own in the community. The BPCSR was initiated by the Portarlington Community Association and is based at the Bellarine Police Station in Ocean Grove. The register is supported by state government, local government, Victoria Police, Bellarine Community Health, major sponsor Bellarine Memories, and relies on volunteers and community donations to operate. To find out more about the register, request a registration form or update an existing registration, phone 5255 3968. Donations to the non-profit organisation are essential to keep the register operating and can be forwarded to Bellarine Police Community Support Register, PO Box 33, Ocean Grove, 3226.

Phil Green is urging Bellarine’s elderly and disabled residents to provide important information to the Bellarine Police Community Support Register for their own security and their family’s peace of mind.

Time for the community to get involved Dear Editor, I am writing in response to the Concerned Parents Against Torquay-Surf Coast Schooling (CPATSS) meeting which I attended at Moby’s on Tuesday, May 11. I was impressed with the attendance and input parents had relating to the future of education in the Surf Coast Shire and I encourage Mr Crutchfield, the Labor Party and Department of Education to become more pro-active and involve the wider community in the consultation process of a new school in the area. Secondary and high schools are not a thing of the past and there are arguments for and against a standalone high school in Torquay. The thought of placing any further infrastructure in Grossmans Road is ridiculous and will only add to the current chaos relating to dropping off and picking up school children on a daily basis. Currently, Grossmans Road has a mixture of education, residential, civic centre and emergency services all within one-kilometre of each other. Take into consideration that if a Year 10-12 high school is placed in the old council office area this will see the introduction of students on P plates entering this area to attend school. The only way this problem can be rectified is to develop a standalone high school away from Grossmans Road and have the children remain at this site for the completion of their education. We do it for primary school aged children so why do we see the need to uproot adolescents and force them to relocate to a different campus. It’s time for the broader community to come aboard and fight for recognition during the consultation phase of this important issue. Chris Burgess

have your say before council to harvest around 100 megalitres of stormwater from the within the Jan Juc Creek catchment, in order to support their development of both the golf course and a resort-style facility which is to include accommodation, restaurants, function rooms and conference centres. Of particular interest was the choice of words such as “Surf Coast council won’t do what they are elected to do – make decisions on behalf of the majority of residents”, and “the councillors appear to be influenced by an obstructionist, ill-informed and undemocratic minority”. Apart from the eloquence of this piece, the reason that this was of particular interest was that the author has also recently been one of the very vocal, and quite emotional minority group that have campaigned against another application that recently went before the council – the redevelopment of the Jan Juc Hotel. Whilst the applications have little relevance to one another, there are some similarities: • Both are to enhance the facilities that are currently available to those that choose to visit the venues • Both would improve the amenities currently afforded to residents • Both will be funded by private investment. Despite this, Mr Frost would like to pick when councillors should listen to vocal minorities and when they should ignore them. In his criticism of the hotel development, Mr Frost has joined with Jeremy Ham under the guise they are speaking for the entire community, and yet only those that do not frequent the area would believe such vitriol. Such was Mr Frost’s contempt for this application that he took the time to present in person at the council hearing, vehemently opposing the fact that it includes the operation of legitimate gaming machines. Yet Mr Frost is defending Torquay Golf Club, which currently operates more poker machines than any other venue in the Surf Coast Shire. In summary Mr Frost, if your inference is that council are considering listening to a vocal minority rather than what you believe is in the best interests of the community and is supported by the majority, then at least they are consistent.

Council footpath ‘spin’ Dear Editor, I read with interest Groundswell, the Surf Coast Shire newsletter mailed out with our rate notices. A couple of points need to be made. Firstly, what an appropriate title for the newsletter! Yes there certainly is a groundswell and it is growing larger in opposition to this council. Secondly, what a choice little piece of ‘spin’ on the article titled A Shared Step Forward on Jan Juc Pathways. Does Council seriously believe this is a “shared step forward” when there has been so much opposition to the footpath ‘strategy’? Given that the issue will be resolved at VCAT, or maybe a higher court, why give ratepayers inaccurate information by inferring the footpath plan is all go, and not mentioning the fact it is subject to appeal? To also market the revised footpath scheme as a response to community concerns is nonsense. Ratepayers were not consulted on the council’s minor amendments to the original proposal, so I fail to understand how council can view their revised scheme as acceptable to ratepayers. And as Phillip West has pointed out in Letters to the Editor, don’t get me started on the Industrial Estate either. Bob Wilson Jan Juc

Stormwater support Dear Editor, My family has been paying rates in Torquay since 1960, and the town has undergone many changes. One that I know has been a great success is the parkland in Carnarvon Avenue between Duffields Road and Hoylake Avenue. Before the 1980s, this land was a mess of reeds and muddy water that was polluted from street run off. The land around there was not sought after, as the area was infested with mosquitoes. Then it was cleaned up and the bridges were constructed, the path was laid and tons of topsoil was brought in and seed was sown. Now we have a wonderful area for little children to ride bikes around and run free. I remember this well as I lived in front of the park and I turned the sprinklers on that council had installed, to help the grass to grow. Why not let the RACV beautify the eastern end of the Carnarvon Avenue park? The water is at the end of the creek and could be

saved to enhance a green space. If we do not have a golf course there, the alternative will be more wallto-wall housing. Sure the developers would be happy but think about the view when you stand on Jan Juc and Torquay beaches. I urge anyone who has any doubts about capturing this small amount of water, to visit The Sands golf course and see the magnificent bird life there, due to the environmentally sensitive way they have harvested stormwater. This could happen in Jan Juc and we could have a beautiful space for all to admire. Christine Rudd Jan Juc

Jarosite track destroyed Dear Editor, Shame on the Department of Sustainability and Environment – they have completely destroyed the ambience and atmosphere of the Jarosite track with their clearing works. Gone are the wild flowers and unique grass trees – left are only a few burnt gum trees dotted here and there. A Twining Jan Juc

Toilet design questioned Dear Editor, Were the new public toilets in Gilbert Street designed with the public in mind? I believe not! The cubicles are extremely narrow and gaining access to the toilet bowl is akin to tackling an obstacle course due to an unnecessarily large basin which is almost half the width of the cubicle plus a hot air dryer on one wall with the toilet paper dispenser mounted on the opposite wall. To top it off, the floor is the only place for bags and clothing! It is very obvious that ergonomics have not been considered in the design process for this facility. A basin of half the current depth, the dryer positioned over the basin and the paper dispenser on the same wall adjacent to the basin would certainly improve access. Large people will have little hope of using the ‘standard’ cubicles. It is obvious that the cubicle for wheelchair access will be very much in demand. Peter Sweetten Torquay

Keeping ahead with technology By Enzo Raimondo, CEO REIV

The 10 per cent range A COMMON misconception in the process of selling and buying a home is that the price range used to market a property must be no more than 10 per cent. This is not the case. If an estate agent chooses to use a price in an advertisement the main rule is that it must be based on comparable sales evidence and not be below what the vendor has advised their estate agent they will accept. With those factors in mind, the law allows the estate agent to choose the best range to market the home. They can choose any range. The REIV recommends to its members that the range be no more than 15 per cent. The REIV also recommends that its members use one of three methods when displaying prices in advertisements: no price, a single price (mainly used in private sales), or a range of no more than 15 per cent. The REIV thinks that the use of terms such as ‘price plus’, ‘buyer inquiry range’ or ‘starting bids at’ should be banned. Confusion arises because the range on a sales authority – the contract between the vendor and estate agent – must not be more than 10 per cent, and because nothing in the law limits what the home may sell for; that is determined by demand on the day. For more information visit www.reiv.com.au

BLOGS, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, the Internet has become a minefield of opinion, comment and social interaction leaving even the most technically savvy individuals bewildered. According to Technorati – an internet search engine which searches for blogs – there are over 50million blogs on the Internet and this figure is increasing daily. But thanks to a new convenient technological development called Really Simple Syndication (RSS), help is on its way. RSS is a new and efficient device to keep up with everything happening on the internet. The Barry Plant Group who are constantly at the forefront of technological developments in the real estate industry believe they are the first real estate

network to have live RSS feeds on all properties listed on the group’s internet site. So what does this mean for the consumer and how can RSS assist you? Up until recent times, consumers’ had to consistently visit websites in order to keep up-todate on new developments and information. “To use real estate as an example, if an individual was interested in purchasing a property from the Barry Plant Group, they would regularly visit barryplant.com.au to confirm Open for Inspection times, changes to price range and whether the property was still on the market,” said Barry Plant director and chief executive officer, Mike McCarthy. “This is a time consuming task which many people find difficult to achieve in today’s time poor

society. RSS enables changes of information to come direct to the consumer, making sure you are aware of any new developments at any time and all it takes is a click of a button.” RSS is a way for web content publishers to make news, blogs, and other content available to subscribers. By using RSS, web publishers can make content and updates of interest available for download by subscribers automatically by sending this information to a single site or reader such as MS Office. RSS readers allow the consumer to subscribe to RSS Feeds and then read content or follow links for additional information. Whenever you see a link to a feed or an RSS icon, just click on it. There is no registration process or any fee.

Home ownership becomes harder

THE DECLINE in housing affordability continued through the early months of this year with higher house prices, increased interest rates, and the removal of the first home buyers’ boost, according to the latest HIA-CBA First Home Buyer Affordability Report. Melbourne housing affordability fell in the March 2010 quarter, dropping by 10 per cent to be 33.2 per cent lower than 12 months ago; regional Victorian affordability dropped 9.2 per cent through the quarter to be 26.7 per cent lower over the past 12 months. HIA Victoria regional executive director, Gil King, said that further interest rate rises in April

and May will likely mean that the June quarter result will see affordability crash to the record lows experienced when interest rates were above nine per cent in 2007. “With the Reserve Bank insistent on further rate rises, housing affordability will once again be a key issue in the mortgage belt regions of Australia,” King said. “We are yet to see the required level of cooperation between all levels of government to deliver critical housing infrastructure without hitting new home buyers. “Higher interest rates, exorbitant infrastructure

charges, an overly restrictive and time consuming planning system continue to fuel Australia’s affordability crisis. Overcoming these issues will go a long way towards restoring housing affordability in Australia.” Affordability deteriorated in most capital cities and regional areas in the March quarter. The largest falls were recorded across Victoria (-10 per cent and -15.9 per cent for Melbourne and regional Victoria respectively), Western Australia (-6.6 per cent and -14.2 per cent in Perth and regional WA respectively) and regional New South Wales (-12 per cent).

Gone are the days of walking up to the office... Products such as the iPad enable you to access information from anywhere. Image courtesy of Apple.

THE INTERNET has become the first place customers now go to view properties online. Torquay boutique real estate agency, Links Property, has found its dynamic website, often referred to as the e-office, to be one of its most important tools to keep up with the demand from customers. “Gone are the days of the walk up real estate office. It is the information age,” said Links Property’s Lynne Hayden. “Buyers are time poor and like the flexibility an e-office has to offer – they can search online 24 hours, seven days a week.” Links Property operates a successful real estate business from home, onsite at The Sands, Torquay. Its new-wave approach to an e-office has set it apart from the traditional real estate agents. “Further websites also enable buyers to search the entire market – not just what’s available with the one agent,” Hayden said. “Customers can save time but reviewing photos and virtual tours which helps qualify a short list of favourites.”

The business has discovered that it has not only changed the way it works but the way its customers respond from the vast array of knowledge they readily have access to. “Buyers and owners can search by price, what’s sold, newest listings and type of property such as a house versus an apartment,” Hayden said. “They can also download information including masterplans, building guidelines and owners’ corporation rules.” There is also a comprehensive range of information based on the lifestyle estate. “We are also boutique in our approach,” Hayden said. “We focus solely on The Sands Torquay and all the research associated with buying on a golf estate.” The business has found that common feedback from clients is how easy the website is to use compared to other similar sites. “Our website is transcendent and has seemingly human qualities that give

it special appeal to a wide range of computer users from experts to novices,” she said. Hayden added that she is excited about the future of technology in regard to the property industry. “Gone are the days of relying just on your real estate agent for the right

advice,” she said. “People need information now. The Internet’s magical ability to product speedy, relevant responses to queries hundreds of millions of times daily has changed the way people find information. “Look at iPhones, iPads, iPods, iTouches... companies have no option

but to go online or be left behind. Links Property is currently working on our website to be more user friendly for the growing trend towards iPhones.” Links Torquay is constantly updating its website.

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 ‘JOSEPH H SCAMMELL’ CONT.: Extracts from ‘History of Torquay’ by James A Baines 1938 A gang of laborers, with lorries, engaged by Captain Douglas, arrived at the scene at daylight on Monday to salvage cargo from the beach on behalf of the Underwriters, and at once set to work collecting the cargo from the beach and placing in it stacks, but they did not calculate on the extra high tide, which that night washed most of the salvage cargo back to the sea again. This tide also had the affect of turning one half of the vessel bottom up. During the same night the mainmast and several of the spars floated ashore, and were landed nearly high and dr y on the beach. The work of salvaging was continued throughout Tuesday. Portions of the bow of the ship was washed ashore at the mouth of Bream Creek, and a quantity of the cargo drifted onto the beach in the same locality.

Your home is your world

GJ GARDNER Homes Geelong is pleased to announce the opening of its newest Display Home, the Catania 234 – a new plan to the GJ Gardner Homes Metro range. The Catania has been designed with flexibility in mind. Areas within the home have been apportioned to enable sections of the home to be easily mirrored and in some respects, switched, so that the home can be adaptable to a wide variety of living styles while addressing the issues of orientation towards the sun. Such changes are possible without modifying the floor area or roofline and thus resulting in no change to the cost of the home. In addition, this thought to design and flexibility means the floor plan can be readily adapted to sloping blocks with minimal disruption to the layout and design, while adding floor area by closing in the alfresco area, or extending the home with an upper storey which can all be readily accomplished. The Catania is truly an innovative design with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, study nook, outdoor area, lounge, laundry, open kitchen, meals and family room and double garage. Space has been utilised in an extremely versatile and practical way. All bedrooms are totally private and separate and all living areas are social and open plan – yet if you

look at the floorplan closely, you will see the advantages of entertaining guests anytime. Guests are able to move with ease from the front entrance, to the lounge and through to the alfresco and kitchen area, without entering the main living area of the home. Perfect for keeping what appears to be an open design totally separate. Make this design your own! GJ Gardner Homes allows you to customise this plan; add a fourth or fifth bedroom, powder room near the alfresco area, or turn the lounge in to a

theatre room! Your home is your world… The display home is situated at 13 Springwater Drive, Lara (part of the Grand Lakes Estate). The Catania starts at $198,200 (as displayed is $297,150) and is open for viewing from 12pm-5pm, Saturday through to Wednesday. For more information, phone 5221 1447 or visit the design centre at 228 Moorabool Street, Geelong between 9am-5pm Monday to Friday or visit www.gjgardner.com.au

Derbyshire’s Platinum edge

NOEL Derbyshire is more than happy for prospective clients to shop around. In fact, the respected local builder encourages people to look at as many display homes as possible. When you step inside his company’s sixstar energy rated showcase home in Highton it is obvious why he is eager for people to compare. Quite simply, there is no comparison. Derbyshire’s three-bedroom Platinum Series display home is truly breathtaking. “We have heard visitors call it the ‘display home of all display homes’. What they are seeing is the customised luxury all discerning clients can expect from a Derbyshire home. That is what sets us apart,” Derbyshire said. The home’s eye-catching facade makes a stunning first impression with its blend of glass, cladding, smoked pine and feature stonework. This continues inside where the plantation spotted gum floors bring warmth to

the contemporary colour scheme. European floor-to-ceiling windows wrap around the front living room to create a lightfilled environment that is balanced by a stone feature wall. In the nearby kitchen the mocha-toned Wathaurong glass splashback complements the Caesar stone island bench which has twin under mount sinks and white two-pack joinery. The kitchen looks onto a built-in day bed which sits beneath a large picture window flanked by bookshelves. Tucked behind the kitchen is a clever study nook that neatly combines a desk, shelving and built-in filing cabinets. The dining area opens onto an expansive outdoor deck. Large sliding doors on the other side of the deck flow through to a second light-filled living room. Down the hallway you discover a family bathroom and

two spacious bedrooms. Downstairs also has a large laundry, powder room and double garage access. Timber stairs lead to the upper floor which is a true parent’s retreat with large en suite, master bedroom, study nook and a spacious walk-in robe. The home’s architectural design takes full advantage of the natural environment through cross ventilation, a double insulated roof, thermal mass and double glazed windows. The total size is 43.5 squares incorporating 33.3 squares of residence, 5.2 squares of garage and five squares of deck. The Platinum Range Series One is $650,000 (on your land). Derbyshire custom homes start from $300,000 (on your land). The Platinum Range Series One at Lot 143 Province Boulevard Highton is open weekends from 1pm-5pm or by appointment by phoning Noel Derbyshire on 0407 524 406.

The eyes have it

BY NATHAN HALE WHAT started as two friends teaming up to form a “flat band” two decades ago is now earning accolades as one of the hottest emerging bands on the east coast of Australia. When Damien Charles and El Witeri were living together in New Zealand and forming a band with friends, little could they have imagined they would reunite years later in Melbourne. The pair are now integral parts of The Red Eyes, who will play Barwon Heads Hotel this Friday night. The seven-piece outfit has formed a strong following over the past seven years, and ticket sales for Friday already indicate a packed venue. “Myself and El were flatmates in NZ a long time ago, then I moved to Melbourne 16 years ago and

we kind of lost contact,” Charles said. “El went on to front the Twelve Tribes of Israel and do a few other things and then he decided he wanted to track me down. “So he packed up and left and came across here and he hunted me down and found me after about two days and told me he wanted to play musc. “At that time, we were predominantly an instrumental band, and I thought he would be great to slot in with his vocals.” Prior to Witeri joining the band, The Red Eyes – who started with 11 members – were seen more as a collective of instrumentalists rather than a band. Since 2003, however, they have settled the lineup and are now touring in support of their second album, Red Army. “Around the time El joined is when we started to solidify the line-up,” Charles said.

“We have always toured with 10 on stage but now we have narrowed it down to seven.” Since the release of their debut album, Rudeworld, in 2007, the band has toured, Charles has got married and gone on an extended honeymoon, and they have also put down more than 50 songs. “This album has taken a while,” Charles said. “It has been a 12-month process and we have done a bit of touring and a few other things. “We recorded 55 tracks and pretty much made two albums at once. “This is our A album and most probably we will release the other album around this time next year… it is a bit more personal and introverted.” While their profile has steadily risen, The Red Eyes are renowned for their larger-than-life festival appearances. They have toured internationally to New

Caledonia, and have supported or been billed alongside the likes of The Original Wailers, Horace Andy, Luciano, The Mad Professor, Easy Star All Stars, Dub Syndicate, Salmonella Dub, The Black Seeds, Cornerstone Roots, Concord Dawn, Sola Rosa, Pitch Black and The Resin Dogs to name a few. These shows have received glowing reviews, often claiming that The Red Eyes explosive live show has eclipsed the main act and seen them increasingly billed as one of the headlining acts at major festivals. For more information or to book tickets for Friday night’s show, phone the Barwon Heads Hotel on 5254 2201 or visit www.barwonheadshotel. com.au For more information on The Red Eyes, visit www.theredeyes.com.au

Vue Grand presents GRAPEVINE the Bellarine’s best } Jon Helmer BROUGHT TO YOU BY

CORKS CREW CELLARS

Are you a ‘Rhone ranger’?

THE RHONE Valley is home to some of the great red wines of France. Stellar sub-regions like Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Cornas, Cote Rotie, and Hermitage readily spring to mind and evince thoughts of seriously seductive wines of great structure, elegance and seamless character. The region as a whole extends south from Vienne just below Lyon in central France and along the valley of the Rhone River to Avignon. It is divided into two major areas – the Northern and Southern Rhone. The Southern Rhone wines include those from areas such as Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Gigondas and Cotes-du-Rhone (‘Hills of The Rhone’ – an area which comprises 16 Villages), and are generally blends of Shiraz, Grenache and Mourvedre. The most sought-after Cotes-Du-Rhone wines come from the villages of Cairanne, Rasteau, Vacqueyras and Seguret. The wines are regarded around the world as great value and are known and loved for their supple, spicy complexities and rich, savoury fruit characters. Last week I attended a terrific tasting of new releases from this region (plus some great Italian and Portuguese wines too), and here’s a few I really liked…maybe you will too.

Domaine De L’Ameillaud Cotes Du Rhone 2007 ($24)

QUEENSCLIFF’S iconic Vue Grand is teaming up with four of the region’s outstanding wineries to present a series of Winter Wine Dinners. In a celebration of the finest the Bellarine has to offer, the dinners will showcase innovative food from the Vue Grand’s award winning executive chef, Mark Pilgrim, matched effortlessly to selected wines from the following local wineries. The dinners will be held at the Vue Grand, with representatives from each winery hosting the event, starting on Friday, June 18, with Banks Road Winery. Guests attending will have the opportunity to meet the people behind some of the Bellarine’s best wines. A full list of the dinners and dates are:

Friday, June 18 – Banks Road Winery

Banks Road is a boutique winery with approximately 12 acres of grapes – Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris and Shiraz. All wines are made on site at the small hands-on facility.

Friday, July 23 – Curlewis Winery

Curlewis Winery was named after Septimus Lord Curlewis, its first settler in 1840. Rainer Breit and Wendy Oliver bought the tiny fouracre Pinot Noir plot in 1997 and proceeded to put in a Burgundian winery.

Friday, August 27 – Oakdene Winery

Oakdene vineyard was established in 2001, with block one planted to Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Block two followed with Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz in 2002. In 2008 block three was planted with Pinot Gris, and trial plantings of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Riesling.

Friday, September 17 – Leura Park Estate

Established in 1995, Leura Park Estate wines are 100 per cent estate grown and predominantly hand picked. A commitment to grape integrity, voice and ‘methode traditionelle’ is showcased in a stable of wines boasting a distinctive and delightful French-style subtlety. Tickets are priced at $95 per person and for more information or to book tickets, phone 5258 1544 or email info@vuegrand.com.au

From the village of Cairanne, this is choc full of rustic regional spice and character with deeper, brooding colour, flavour and complexity. Easily one of the bigger, more fuller examples I’ve seen for some time due to the heat of the vintage, it’s loaded to the gills with brambly dark raspberry accented fruit, fruit cake nuance and richness to burn… very good.

Domaine Raspail-Ay Gigondas 2007 ($50)

The highly acclaimed/respected Rhone wine commentator, Remington Norman, rates this estate as “One of Gigonda’s best wines… this is a five-star domaine.” Founded in 1854, this has only 18 hectares under vine. Terrifically ‘dense’, I thought this was super stuff indeed – it has an edge of ‘wow’ factor about it. Once again, a powerful blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mourvedre that is very rich, dark and brooding with spice, pepper and grainy tannins all woven together and showing lovely balance… bring it on.

our view

Roger Sabon Chateauneuf-Du-Pape ‘Les Olivets’ 2007 ($70)

This was so good that I took a bottle home from the tasting to enjoy with dinner that night. I keep banging on about texture and ‘mouth feel’ and this is a great example of what I’m on about. The ‘weight’ of the wine was just perfect, rich, supple and complex yes, but all in proportion and so drinkable which belied the 14.5 per cent alcohol level. Definitely one for a special occasion and good food.

Kitchen capers and that big fish myth CAN I just clear up a couple of kitchen myths with you right now? First, capers in the kitchen‌ these piquant little buds are in fact a very versatile commodity to have in the pantry because you will find them useful for more than just tarting up the smoked salmon crostini you’re planning on serving with Friday night drinks, to wind up the week! Their pungent flavour provides the perfect foil for rich meats such as pork, and is delicious when combined with chicken liver crostini to make a zesty impact on the palate. Caper bushes grow wild in arid regions such as Crete, Malta, Spain and Italy – we grow them here as our southern Australian summers are similar to parts of the Mediterranean climate, and I’ve bought ‘local’ South Australian capers recently. They are not yet commercially grown here to any great extent, but surprisingly we appear to use them in spite of their relative obscurity for most home cooks. Each year 100 tonnes are imported to Australia – many people would automatically think of the ones in small jars, pickled in brine or vinegar, which are not all that palatable in my opinion. The highly prized tiny capers packed in salt originate from southern France; Italy produces ones about the

size of the tip of your little finger; from Spain there is also the caper-berry. This little flavoursome berry, with stem attached, is pickled in brine and is about the size of a small green olive. They are wonderful as a garnish with rich meats and oily fish. My favourite capers in the kitchen are the tiny ones, picked from the wild bushes by hardy Sicilians who risk life and limb to clamber over the rugged cliffs of the Aeolian Islands, gathering the flower buds. Packed in salt, they need to be thoroughly yet gently rinsed in water before use – where they can end up in many dishes and sauces such as tapenade and tartare. They are the finishing touch to a meal of Vitello Tonnato and are essential in salsa verde. This ‘green sauce’ of parsley, lemon juice, capers, olive oil and garlic makes a wonderful accompaniment to grilled swordfish, tuna or flake. Which brings me to the second myth I would like to tidy up in the kitchen: That of how much mercury is in these types of fish. Reports in the papers some time back scared us away from choosing and cooking these types of fish, a shame really as they are rich in omega3 oils – the benefits of which have been widely documented.

DINING WITH A DIFFERENCE

  

        

 

Bistro One SUNDAY ROAST

Two Courses $18.00 / Three Courses $22.00

Given that most of us probably still adhere to eating fish one night a week, you are hardly going to send your mercury meter up into the danger zone by enjoying a meal of swordfish or fresh tuna on a regular basis. In fact, there has never been a documented case of mercury poisoning from fish in Australia. Food Standards Australia-New Zealand recommends that pregnant women, or women considering pregnancy should limit their consumption of predatory fish to four portions a week, whilst the general population can safely consume one meal per day of the types of fish that are high in the food chain, ie. the predatory fish such as swordfish, ray, some species of shark, ling, gemfish, large tuna and large wild-caught barramundi. So I think the myth can be dispelled and the message is clear – don’t steer clear of these wonderful fish when planning your family meals. With winter now upon us, a warming Thai-style fish curry made from swordfish is just the ticket for easy entertaining – served with steamed jasmine rice – a perfect meal that is so healthy! But getting back to the capers for a moment, nothing could be simpler than a serving of grilled tuna, flake or swordfish topped with delightful Sicilian flavours. Try this on the family soon!

Fish with Sicilian flavours Ingredients

2 tblspns chopped flatleaf parsley 2 tblspns lemon juice 2 tblspns capers 2 tblspns olive oil 2 tblspns finely chopped fresh rosemary combined with a pinch of chilli powder 2 anchovy fillets, finely chopped Either swordfish, tuna or flake Freshly ground black pepper

Method

Blend all these ingredients together and spread the mix over portions of swordfish, tuna or flake. Place in a baking dish, covered with foil and bake in a pre-heated oven (200C) for eight-10 minutes, depending on the thickness of the fish. Serve with steamed green beans, roasted garlicky potatoes and a glass of sauvignon blanc. Delish Fish!

True to the title of the CD, Mathiske explores different genres while still maintaining his unique style.

Eisteddfod entries open introduced in 2011. “With several new countries joining the Global Rock Challenge next year, a panel of judges from different countries will select global winners in the division by viewing videos of the school performances,� Sjoquist said. The foundation has written to schools inviting entries to the 2011 events to be submitted so that it can finalise the schedule and the budget for 2011 and then hopefully raise sufficient sponsorship funds to ensure ticket prices are affordable. The foundation is hopeful that it can secure sufficient government and corporate funding to produce the 2011 events, however, it also needs to ensure that the level of school interest matches the requirements of sponsors and the level of sponsorship. “We have been contacted by many organisations keen to support us and would welcome others who may also like to support the youth of Australia,� Sjoquist said.

SURF Coast and Bellarine Peninsula schools are being encouraged to enter the 2011 Rock Eisteddfod Challenge. The time-honoured event last week announced entries were open for next year, with Victorian performances to be held this August in Melbourne. Since the eisteddfod began in 1980, more than one million students have participated in the event. The Board of the Rock Eisteddfod Challenge Foundation is keen to continue the heritage of Australia’s number one youth performing arts and health promotion programme. “The event is open to all secondary and primary schools in the state, independent and catholic sectors,� said executive producer, Peter Sjoquist. “All schools are welcome.� The event will provide the opportunity for schools to perform in professionally produced shows in preeminent venues in each city – with Hisense Arena to host the Victorian performances from August 8-19. In addition, several new, innovative ideas will be

Irish outfit The Young Wolftones proved one of the most popular acts at last year’s National Celtic Festival at Portarlington. Organisers have again secured outstanding national and international acts for this year’s event, which will be held from June 11-14. For more information, visit www.nationalcelticfestival.com

Babes, bollards and tall tales MORE Geelong and Bellarine Peninsula voices are being heard through the groundbreaking interactive arts project [murmur]. With brand new stories added to the collection and new [murmur] projects on the horizon, Geelong’s Australian-first project continues to gather momentum. [murmur] at Eastern Park and Eastern Beach is an exciting project in which uniquely Geelong stories told by local storytellers can be heard via mobile phones in the place where they happened. A new suite of stories have been collected since [murmur]’s launch in March and added to the 19 different [murmur] locations in Eastern Park and Eastern Beach.

Listen to a seven-year-old’s account of an annual Maori festival, how a comedian chatted up a bollard and frightened a hapless public toilet user, and to the squawk of Geelong Botanic Gardens’ iconic fruitbats. Hear tales of fishing off Limeburners Point, competing in an Amazing Race around Eastern Beach and of hunting Easter eggs through Eastern Park. Ear-shaped signs scattered throughout Eastern Park and Eastern Beach contain codes that can be sent via a SMS message to access memories and stories about that site. Stories are told over the phone, allowing the listener to wander through, around and into the

73

narrative they are listening to. The new stories are also available on the website www.murmurgeelong.com where each story is complemented with images of its location. And expect to uncover even more Geelong stories in the coming weeks when new [murmur] sites are unveiled at North Geelong railway station as well as on the Bellarine Peninsula and in Lara. [murmur] is being delivered by the City of Greater Geelong Arts and Culture Department as part of its three-year Connecting Identities project. For more details on the project, or to share a story of your own, contact the City of Greater Geelong Arts and Culture Department on 5272 4703 or visit www.murmurgeelong.com

Moonah’s wild moves at Bellbrae LOCAL group Moonah is teaming up with Wild Moves for an energetic and interactive performance at Bellbrae Hall this Saturday. The two local outfits will be joined by singersongwriter and banjo player, CC Thornley, for the performance between 7.30pm-9.30pm. The intimate setting at Bellbrae opens up opportunities for the band to perform its songs and explain the finer details of the instruments they use and the songwriting process, as well as encouraging the audience to join in the facilitated ‘jam sessions’. Those attending are encouraged to bring along their own instruments to join in the jam sessions, or for those who would prefer to just kick back and listen, that can be done as well. Whatever you choose, you can be sure of a high-energy and action-packed evening of fun and entertainment. For those attending who have guitars, drums or didgeridoos, bring them along to take part in the jam session, or if you don’t have an instrument but would like to take part, hire is available for $5. Tickets are priced at $15 for adults, $10 for children and $40 for families. For more information or to book tickets, phone Jacqui on 0409 025 062.

MAY 25 - MAY 31 2010 Cool, calm, collected Capricorns - this week you could be called on to smooth troubled waters, as those around you suffer from a hefty dose of Full Moon Madness. With Uranus entering your domestic zone, things are about to be shaken up on the home front. So you need to be flexible and keep up-to-date with what’s going on at Casa Capricorn.

Uranus storms into your sign on Friday (for the first time since 1934). You’ll become more independent and innovative, but you must learn to control your impulsive nature. Remember there’s a fine line between being daring – and being plain reckless. By all means take risks Rams, but make sure they are calculated (and clever) ones.

It’s Full Moon time so many Crabs will be tense and touchy. You tend to stew on things but try not to bottle up your feelings. Express how you feel – and then move on. Are you bored with your job? Be careful what you wish for! With Uranus charging into your career zone, big professional changes are heading your way over the next few years.

Uranus barnstorms into your partnership zone on Friday so, over the next nine years, your major relationships will alter in unexpected ways. With Venus in your career zone (until June 14) it’s the ideal time to patch up problems with co-workers, plus spruce up your work space. You perform best when you’re surrounded by beauty and harmony.

Bulls become insecure when things start to change. With this week’s Full Moon moving through your transformation zone, the only certainty at the moment is change. Like a caterpillar transforming into a butterfly, your personal metamorphosis is happening at an unusually rapid rate. So you’d better get used to it Taurus!

Friday’s fiery full moonbeams light up your drama zone. So those around you can expect some classic attention-grabbing antics, as you throw yourself into the day with diva-like abandon. Resist the urge to throw a huge hissy fit on the weekend, when loved ones don’t tow the line. Life certainly won’t be dull in Leo Land this week!

How comfortable are you feeling Scorpio? Financial and emotional security are highlighted this week, as the Full Moon shines the spotlight on your money/self-esteem zone. Accumulating cash, assets and possessions will make you feel more secure on the outside, but true security and peace of mind can only come from within.

Uranus (your ruling planet) shifts into Aries, for the first time in 76 years. This increases your independent, innovative nature – but also your restless and rebellious side. With the Full Moon in your peer group zone, take a close look at your friendships. Fair-weather friends will lead you astray, whereas true mates will fill your life with abundance and joy.

Don’t get so caught up in daily busyness that you neglect family and friends. This week, put aside time to spend with someone special. Your enthusiasm is contagious and you have the ability to inspire others to follow their dreams. Your motto for the next seven days is from birthday boy, Jamie Oliver “Inspiration is around every corner ‌â€?

Taskmaster Saturn has moved back into your sign (until July 22) and you’re having a tough time, but worrying and complaining won’t help the situation. You need to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and move on. It’s time to adopt the no-nonsense approach of birthday great, John Wayne “Quit your bellyaching and saddle-up!�

This week magnifies your positive traits – and your negative ones. Aim to be gregarious and generous, rather than bossy and belligerent. On Saturday you’re exuberantly enthusiastic, as you embark on an exciting adventure. Be inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson (born May 25) “Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.�

With Friday’s Full Moon in your work zone, it’s time to be bold and brave as you plan your professional future. Pliable Pisceans can waste a lot of energy trying to be all things to all people. This weekend, temporarily put the needs of others aside and concentrate on Numero Uno, as you pursue personal projects that make your heart sing.

Racecourse launches stormwater project WHILE the debate over the use of stormwater runoff at Torquay golf club continues, the Geelong Racing Club last week unveiled plans to droughtproof its racecourse. The club’s new $380,000 stormwater harvesting project was opened by Deputy Premier and Minister for Racing, Rob Hulls, who said the ability to tap into a previously unused water source would supply more than enough water for irrigation purposes. “This project represents the future for the Geelong Racing Club in that it provides independence from the community’s water source and allows the club to keep its racecourse in prime condition,� he said. “It can pump 110 megalitres of stormwater into useable water to irrigate the Geelong Racecourse, which uses about 70 megalitres a year.� Hulls said the construction of a stormwater treatment pond on an existing council drain and the installation of a pump that can draw water between 30 and 50 litres per second had secured the future of Geelong’s racecourse. “The completion of this project will not only benefit the Geelong Racing Club in effectively drought-proofing its racecourse, it will also ease the burden on the community’s drinking water supply,� he said. Hulls said the state government had provided $266,000 to the project through its $86million Regional Racing Infrastructure Fund, which it established with the racing industry. Racing Victoria Limited (RVL) and Country Racing Victoria (CRV) jointly provided the remaining $114,000. Hulls said racing had played a key role in the community of Victoria’s largest regional centre since the first race was run at Corio in 1841. “Racing has been a part of Geelong for nearly 170 years and in that time the racecourse has developed to benefit the wider community who use it for broader cultural, social, economic and sporting activities,� he said.

Rob Hulls and Keith Sutton overlook the stormwater treatment pond.

RVL chief operating officer, Bernard Saundry, said the completion of the stormwater harvesting project at Geelong was another milestone for Victoria’s thriving thoroughbred racing industry.

“The Victorian thoroughbred racing industry is committed to a widespread programme of watersaving initiatives at our racecourses and this project represents another important milestone,� he said.

“Water is an extremely precious commodity throughout the state and this project reduces pressure on water supplies in the Geelong region by drought-proofing the Geelong racecourse.�

Surf Coast secures top spot

FROM THE

mat

ANOTHER weekend of excellent weather saw some great results across the leagues for the Surf Coast soccer club.

Men: Surf Coast Provisional 2 (1) v Moreland (0)

WITH ANGLESEA BOWLS CLUB

THE WEATHER this month has been excellent for bowling – sunny days, minimal wind – so why would you want to head north? On Saturday, May 16, 54 bowlers had a most enjoyable afternoon of mixed social bowls. It was pleasing to see some visitors represented in the winning teams. The men on Monday, and the ladies on Tuesday, again enjoyed sunny bowling conditions for their afternoon games.

Winter bowls

The Anglesea Bowling Club

The score doesn’t reflect the intensity and hard work by Surf Coast Blue, and especially the great effort in goal by Jemah Boyle.

Up against a formidable opponent in Moreland – a long established club that has competed at the highest echelons of soccer in Victoria – Surf Coast turned in a classy and tenacious performance to cement its position at the top of the table.

U12 boys: Surf Coast Yellow (7) v Barwon Blue(0)

Women: Surf Coast (3) v Geelong (0)

U12 girls: Surf Coast (9) v Bell Park (3)

It was a glorious win for the Surf Coast women at The Quay, their first of the season and very well-deserved. They came out onto the pitch with nothing to lose and took their opponents by surprise from the outset, playing with great spirit and determination.

is keen for its two synthetic greens to be fully utilised during the winter period. Visitors most welcome to join us as follows: Men: Mondays commencing at 12.30 pm. Ladies: Tu e s d ay commencing at 11.00 am (BYO Lunch) Mixed: Saturdays commencing at 12.30 pm Please note that this Saturday, May 29, mixed social bowls will commence at 11am (BYO Lunch) with the AGM commencing at 3 pm. Could all members please attend – your club needs your support.

U14 Girls: Surf Coast Blue (0) v Kardinia (5)

Another good game for the Yellows with solid defense and very creative midfielding. Tom, Brod, Jesse and Lawson played very well. The Legends finally discovered two major sporting principles against Bell Park – teamwork and passing the ball. The result? A fast starting and even faster finishing team that won the game convincingly, 9-3.

U16 Girls: Surf Coast (2) v Geelong (0)

The Surf Coast Under 16s girls defeated Geelong 2-0 in a game that was dominated by Surf Coast passing and teamwork. The win means the Surf Coast under 16s girls are undefeated after playing every team in the league.

U15 Boys: Surf Coast (2) v Surfside (4)

A great first half by Surf Coast saw two goals from Seb Foletti, but a poor second half, not helped by the loss of goalkeeper Skillbeck saw four goals conceded.

U14 Girls: Surf Coast Yellow (4) vs Surfside (3)

In their first win of the season, the Yellows played their hearts out against the classy Surfsiders at Ocean Grove. The result was an incredible turnaround for the girls, who had gone down 9-0 against Surfside in round one.

My Big Catch proudly sponsored by:

BY GARRY KERR

THIS week I’m writing to you from the lovely coastal township of Tathra, along the Sapphire Coast of New South Wales. It is not often I get to take holidays nowadays, but when I do, I obviously take the chance to get in a little bit of fishing and try to find some unique places in which to fish. This time was no different, both from land and on the water, we fished areas that I had not had the chance to fish before, and yes, the fishing was good. Species were plentiful – trevally, flathead, mackerel, taylor, cod, mullet, garfish and even the odd octopus, however, on this trip there was no one standout fish that provided any bragging rights. Just a relaxing holiday with plenty of fresh seafood, oh, and I shouldn’t forget to mention the oysters as well. So rather than relate all the minor fishing stories, I have provided just a few shots to hopefully whet your appetite and encourage you to visit this lovely part of our Australian coastline.

Press release

While on holidays I received the following media release from the Boating and Fishing Council of Australia: National spokesperson for the Boating and Fishing Council of Australia (BFCA) Dean Logan noted that there was a growing resentment within the recreational fishing and boating sectors toward the Federal Fisheries Minister, Tony Burke, given a broken promise to treat the mako shark amendment legislation as a priority. “The government promised our respective sectors

that the so-called ‘Mako Shark Legislation’ would be a priority, however, it appears that the government has done a deal with the Greens to force the legislation down the legislative priority list, in the hope that it is not debated prior to the election,” he said. “It makes no sense to postpone this legislation and it makes no sense to cut a deal with the Greens. “The government promised that it will be considered a priority, the Coalition support the legislation as does Senator Fielding. This renders the Greens impotent on the scheduling issue. “The issue was handled appallingly by the Rudd Government at the outset and caused a great deal of unnecessary anger throughout Australia. The Fisheries Minister Tony Burke was silent then and is silent now. “As a result, as of 29 January 2010, it is a Federal offence under Part 13 of the EPBC Act to kill, injure or take either species, even if it is by mistake. “The damage control measures implemented by the government – after thousands of recreational fishers and boaters complained loudly – was to draft amending legislation and in the meantime ‘turn a blind eye’ to enforcement of the legislation. “The amending legislation though should have been debated and passed by now. “We proactively seek strong dialogue with all sides of politics however the ‘lip service’ given to respective recreational sectors can no longer be tolerated. “It is now up to the government to confirm that the legislation will be debated in the Senate and passed prior to the long winter recess.”

Footy: A pain in the back? BY JUSTIN EDWARDS LOWER back pain (LBP) can restrict your performance on the footy field and create other injuries if not addressed early. LBP results in few missed games, but early diagnosis and effective treatment can result in less discomfort while playing and decrease the possibility of it leading onto the ‘back-related hamstring’. What causes Lower Back Pain? LBP can come from many different anatomical sites and is often an interaction between a number of structures resulting in pain and movement restrictions. Discs, joints and muscles are the more common

structures in the lower back to cause pain. Discs were previously thought to have minimal nerve supply. However, recent research has shown that the outer 1/3 has a significant number of pain-related nerve endings. Discs can degenerate and cause central LBP or referred pain into the gluteal, hamstring, calf and even foot. If a disc bulges onto the nerve that exits close to it, other sensations like pins and needles, numbness and muscle weakness can also be part of the symptom complex. Accurate assessment of the distribution and patterns of the pain along with movement restrictions relating to the pain allows an individual diagnosis to be made and an appropriate treatment implemented

to address both pain and movement restrictions. Physiotherapy management Physiotherapy treatment for LBP has many treatment tools to address the different causes of LBP. Joint mobilisation, massage, trigger point release, dry needling and electrotherapy are some of the passive ‘in rooms’ techniques. However, the programme may also require stretching and exercises targeted to improve muscle control/bulk to be completed outside of physiotherapy treatment times. Both components of physiotherapy treatment are essential to generate an effective intervention to decrease LBP and reduce the possibility of LBP causing other injuries that may create missed games.
