MORE BUSES Additional services to provide easier link throughout the Bellarine Peninsula and to Geelong and surrounding towns

BY ALISON MARTIN MORE than 130 extra bus services linking Bellarine towns with the Geelong public transport system will be announced this week. The new public system, which will include a major increase in weekday and weekend buses for the Bellarine, will be rolled out from Monday, October 25. Member for Bellarine, Lisa Neville, said the State Government’s Victorian Transport Plan included an $80million investment to improve bus services in the Geelong region by providing extra services, extended routes, enhanced cross town connections and greater connectivity with rail services. “Enhancements to the Bellarine transit

network will see services improved in Torquay, Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads, Point Lonsdale, Queenscliff, Drysdale, Clifton Springs, Portarlington and St Leonards,” Neville said. “The project will also create a new central bus interchange in Moorabool Street, Geelong. “The project will help meet the transport needs of Greater Geelong’s growing population – the largest population growth in regional Victoria.” Neville said improvements to the Greater Geelong bus network were being delivered over two stages. Stage one improvements started on Monday, September 7, 2009 and stage two improvements, which include Bellarine services, begin on Monday, October 25. “The stage 2 improvements consist of an extra

Charity walk starts Submissions

go to panel

BY ALISON MARTIN DRYSDALE’S Blaise White and his cousin, Zac Dodds, have reached their new fundraising target of $15,000 and started their 400-kilometre adventure to Tocumwal. Blaise, Zac, their families and supporters shared breakfast at The Zoo in Drysdale on Sunday morning before beginning the 10-day walk in memory of their grandfather, Alex ‘Bumpa’ Dodds. The inspirational teenagers had initially set themselves a goal of raising $10,000 for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation and the Andrew Love Centre to honour Alex, who died last year from pancreatic cancer. However, the overwhelming response from the Bellarine and Geelong community to their Alex Dodds Walk 4 A Cure pushed the charity target to $15,000. Geelong’s Prestige Jayco has donated a motorhome to be used during the walk and many people have supported the many fundraisers organised by Blaise and Zac’s families over the past 10 months. Blaise and Zac will walk eight to nine hours a day and plan to walk into Tocumwal at 5pm on September 29, with their grandmother joining them for the last three kilometres of the walk. For further information on making a last minute donation, contact Kerryn White on 0407 743 376 or keep updated on the trek on the Alex Dodds Walk 4 A Cure Facebook page.

AN INDEPENDENT panel will be asked to consider submissions to an amendment that clears the way for the residential development of a 12-hectare parcel of land in Moss Road, Leopold. The two submissions to be heard by the panel are from neighbouring property owners who object to the development because of the drainage issues. City of Greater Geelong councillor and planning portfolio holder, Andrew Katos, said Amendment C202 sought to rezone the parcel of land bounded by Moss Road, Portarlington Road, Kensington Road, and the Bellarine Rail Trail from Farming Zone to Residential 1 Zone. He said the rezoning proposal would provide a total of between 120 and 130 new residential lots. Katos said the 12-hectare parcel of land included a number of titles, including the Leopold Sportsman’s Club. “The amendment proposes to make the land subject to a Development Plan Overlay (DPO) to ensure that new residential development is planned and constructed in a fully integrated and comprehensive manner,� he said. “Detailed issues such as urban design, drainage and traffic management would

be properly addressed prior to the development of the site.� Katos said Amendment C202 was accompanied by a Section 173 agreement requiring that developers pay a contribution of $900 per residential block. The contributions would go toward the development of the Leopold Community Hub on Kensington Road. Katos said the proposed rezoning and accompanying DPO was consistent with state and local polices and the orderly planning of the area, and included a drainage solution that gave due consideration to other land in the whole of the local catchment. CoGG councillor, Rod Macdonald, said he was pleased the development would now move forward. He said council had committed to undertake extensive maintenance works on existing stormwater drainage systems to improve drainage capacity in the Moss Road area. Macdonald said the amendment was well supported and in line with the Leopold Structure Plan. He said the Moss Road proposal was an infill development and was within the existing Leopold town boundaries.

Olive gold BY ALISON MARTIN LIGHTHOUSE Olive Oil has won gold and the prestigious title of champion Australian Extra Virgin Olive Oil at the Sydney Royal Fine Food Show. The major award and recognition of the Lighthouse picual oil variety has reinforced the quality of Bellarine’s olive industry in gourmet circles. Lighthouse Olive Oil shop manager, Rosie Holder, said the nationally recognised gold medal and champion status was a brilliant reward for all the time and effort that went into farming the olives and producing the premium quality oil. The Lighthouse picual oil won gold in the Australian Extra Virgin Olive Oil Spanish Varietal category and then took out the overall championship – competing against more than 40 other olive oil producers. “It’s really exciting. We won champion of the show in 2008, but production was down last year, probably because of the lack of rain,� Rosie said. “We only produced 7,000 litres last year and this year we have 13,000 litres.� Rosie said recent high rainfall was expected to help produce a bumper crop next year, and ensure Lighthouse continued to produce its premium quality oil. “We have a lot of customers who make day trips from Melbourne to the Bellarine, just to buy our oil and the other local gourmet produce from the Lighthouse shop,� she said. Lighthouse Olive Oil, with 11,000 olive trees grown over 165 acres at Drysdale, is on the Bellarine Taste Trail and offers wholesale and retail sales on site.

Discover a New Way of Life in Aged Care

Bellarine Ambulance station team manager, Chris James, Borough of Queenscliffe law enforcement officer, Mark Osborne, Point Lonsdale SLSC’s, Matthew Ponsford, Member for Bellarine, Lisa Neville, and Point Lonsdale SLSC alert team members Peter Sutas and Niall Grant test the new all terrain vehicle.

Gearing up for summer TWO NEW six-wheel-drive all-terrain vehicles are now patrolling and improving safety for residents and visitors along the Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff coastline. The Polaris ATVs have been funded through a Community Safety Emergency Support Programme grant made available to the Point Lonsdale Surf Life Saving Club. The $34,666 grant was boosted with an additional $17,333 raised by the club, to enable the purchase of the vehicles which will be based in Point Lonsdale and Queenscliff. Point Lonsdale SLSC senior vice president, Matthew Ponsford, said the two ATVs would replace the club’s original single ATV and would make the work of volunteer surf lifesavers and lifeguards easier and reduce the possibility of manual handling injuries. “As we have two patrolled beaches, with heavy equipment like inflatable rescue boats to be put on

these beaches daily when they are patrolled, the ATVs will be invaluable,� he said. “As well as benefiting our members, the ATVs are available to assist both Victoria Police and Ambulance Victoria through Life Saving Victoria’s role in state emergency management arrangements. “Life Saving Victoria is a support agency to the police for water search and rescue and a provider of first aid services at the request of Ambulance Victoria. “Every year our members and ATV are called out several times to assist paramedics to evacuate injured or sick people off our beaches, or to render aid before paramedics arrive. “As a member of the Borough of Queenscliffe’s municipal emergency management planning committee, we work closely with local full time and volunteer emergency services, the borough and other government agencies to make our community a safer place.�

Leura Park sparkles LEURA Park Estate has added to its growing reputation with another award-winning performance in Melbourne. The Bellarine-based winery took out equal first place in the People’s Choice Awards for both Top Red and Top White at the Federation Square Victorian Wineries 2011 Showcase Series (Geelong and Henty). The winning wines – their 6 Rows Sparkling Shiraz 2010 and Grand Vintage Sparkling Blanc de Blanc 2009 – shared the podium for Top White Top Red. The Geelong and Henty showcase is the first of the monthly showcase series of Victorian wines for 2011 which will go through until August next year, culminating in a finals

showdown against the best of the best from wine regions across Victoria. The event attracted more than 300 people with the People’s Choice Awards resulting from patrons voting for their pick of the line up of wines on tasting. Director of Leura Park Estate, Lyndsay Sharp, said that as an avid sparkling fan, she was ecstatic. “The nuts and bolts of wine making is that you seek to craft wines that people love and seek out so to win the People’s Choice Award in both categories – red and white – is particularly gratifying,” she said. “It is unique for two sparkling wines to take out the top spots in any Australian wine competition – what’s great is that Australian

sparkling wines are now being recognised as seriously sophisticated – wine lovers are really starting to stand up and acknowledge this fact.” Sharp said there was another aspect to sparkling wine that particularly appealed to her and made the awards even more special. “Sparkling wine transforms any occasion into an instant celebration, no matter how small or simple the occasion may be, I love that,” she said. Both the 6 Rows Sparkling Shiraz and Grand Vintage Sparkling Blanc de Blanc retail at the Leura Park Estate cellar door for $24.95. Leura Park Estate is located at 1400 Portarlington Road, Curlewis, phone 5253 3180 or visit www.leuraparkestate.com.au

Let the works begin PORTARLINGTON’S rotunda has been restored and work is now under way to create a new pedestrian-friendly town square. City of Greater Geelong councillor, John Doull, who represents Portarlington, said the first stage of the project, involving the town square construction around the recently refurbished century-old rotunda and bandstand, would be a great community asset. The Wallington-based Lake and Land Construction team (pictured, from left) Anthony Webber, Steve Payne and Hayden Straughair, began work on the square last week. Residents with questions about the works can contact CoGG on 5272 4821 or 5272 4936.

DCSCA UPDATE DRYSDALE and Clifton Springs Community Association has applied for a City of Greater Geelong arts grant to support the Festival of Glass.

Wild weather

VICSES volunteers from the Bellarine Unit responded to 28 requests for assistance across the peninsula in one night, with Drysdale and Clifton Springs the worst hit.

Although the weather is expected to improve, if residents experience storm damage or flash flooding, they should call the VICSES flood and storm response emergency number on 132 500. In a life threatening emergency, call 000.

Culture on show to the world STATE Premier John Brumby last week unveiled a spectacular cultural programme that includes the installation of large-scale artworks around Geelong to showcase the city to the world during next week’s 2010 UCI World Road Cycling Championships. At Geelong Gallery, Brumby was joined by Arts Minister, Peter Batchelor, and Geelong Mayor, John Mitchell, to announce details of a cultural programme including events, extended opening hours of galleries and a special series of public artworks during the championships. Brumby said the artworks would transform the city during the 2010 UCI World Cycling Championships. The centrepiece of the programme will be a series of eight public art installations, funded by the Victorian Government that will be installed around Geelong and along the cycling route. “The UCI Road Cycling World Championships are regarded as one of the great events in world sport and are at the pinnacle of the cycling world calendar,� Mr Brumby said. “The event is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of visitors to Geelong and attract an estimated television audience of 250 million people worldwide. The championships will be held in Geelong from September 29 to October 3. Full details of the cultural programme are available at www.geelongaustralia.com.au

          

State award for Ocean Grove nurse OCEAN Grove nurse, Maggie Stowers, has been recognised at the prestigious 2010 State Nursing and Midwifery Excellence Awards. Stowers, a cancer co-ordination manager for Barwon South Western Regional Integrated Cancer Service (BSWRICS), picked up the Jen Rusden Memorial Award at the award ceremony in Melbourne. The awards recognise some of Victoria’s most exceptional and dedicated nurses and midwives – with state Health Minister Daniel Andrews and Mental Health and Aged Care Minister, Lisa Neville, presenting the awards. Commemorating the achievements of the late Jen Rusden – a community health nurse who inspired the countless people she worked with – the Jen Rusden Memorial Award provides a scholarship for nurses to further develop their innovation. For Stowers, hearing her name called out as the award winner was “an emotional moment�. “This award means a great deal to me, it is an honour to be recognised by my peers and by the Department of Health,� Stowers said. “The Nurse Policy branch of the Department of Health has created this opportunity for nurses to be acknowledged for innovations in nursing care. It was inspiring to be amongst such nurses and hear the wonderful work being done in Victoria. “Some of the funds from my prize money will be allocated to improve electronic links between the nurses, while some will go towards developing cancer nursing education specifically to support this model.� Barwon Health executive director of nursing and midwifery, Dr Lucy Cuddihy, nominated Stowers for the award and was thrilled to see her win. “Maggie has developed a new nursing model of cancer co-ordination, called Cancer Link Nurse, which supports patients, families and clinicians in rural Victoria,� Dr Cuddihy said.

Maggie Stowers (centre) accepts her award at the gala ceremony in Melbourne last week.

“The project aims to improve communications between treatment teams and provide support information and education at a local level. “She is an expert in cancer care, an excellent communicator, is capable of leading a

multidisciplinary team and has shown she can build capacity through innovation and strong leadership.� For further information about the awards, visit www.premier.vic.gov.au

The secret is out BY ELEANOR WOODS

Surf Coast blogger Merrin Wake has received praise for her insightful commentary on motherhood and life. She is pictured with daughters, Imogen, 8, Summer, 2, and Kiah, 4.

A JAN JUC mother needed to vent. Frustrated by the scrutiny, judgment and high standards mothers put on themselves and others in the same boat, Merrin Wake began a blog to “tell it how it is”. “I think I started it as therapy,” she said. “I got so fed up with all the books telling me what to do and all the people trying to make out like motherhood is ‘perfect’. “I would sit there and think, ‘that’s not my life’.” Wake’s blog Secrets of Motherhood is gaining momentum with other likeminded mothers finding solace in the idea that motherhood is not ideal, but more of a work in progress. “I want to create a community where mothers feel supported, where they feel good about what they are doing, not constantly being compared,” the mother of three said. “Some days just aren’t perfect… so why do we pretend they are? “I remember one day when I was sick in bed and my two-year-old had the same nappy all day, my eight-year-old was on the computer for hours and my four-yearold just sat in front of the TV. “Sometimes you just do what you have to do to get by.” The ex-paediatric nurse, who is currently studying a postgraduate degree

in journalism, had always had a passion for writing and children so, according to Wake, the blog was a natural progression. “I have always been fascinated by people and we have a great research ground here on the Surf Coast,” she said. “Many of us are struggling with finding the balance and fending off the pressure – often that we put on ourselves. “I just wondered why no-one was saying what I was thinking. “Some days are terrible; let’s be real and talk about these things which are the reality of life as a mother. “Of course, there are also all the good times as well. I am just so blessed with my family. My husband, Gavin, is very supportive of me and our kids are amazing. “I find it a real honour and a real privilege to be a mum and to see the world through their eyes.” Wake is also considering developing workshops through the Spring Creek Community House in Torquay. The themes of the courses will be based around chapters of the book, You Sexy Mother, by Jodie Hedley-Ward, which is a ‘life changing’ approach to motherhood. “Her points are just fantastic – real tips to keep you sane,” Wake said. “I think the course would be especially important for first-time mums.” To register an interest in the course and to read Wake’s blog, www. secretsofmotherhood.com

news Funding up for grabs

COMMUNITY groups across Victoria are being invited to apply for a share of $350,000 in funding to preserve and share their stories. Minister for the Arts, Peter Batchelor, said applications were now open for community groups to apply for grants of up to $12,000 for individual projects as part of the latest round of the State Government’s Local History Grants Programme. “Communities right across Victoria have a range of stories to tell,” Batchelor said. “The Local History Grants Programme aims to support projects that can help communities connect with their heritage – whether it is compiling a book, creating a website, purchasing preservation equipment, staging an exhibition or passing on the skills needed to share stories with future generations.” Batchelor said the programme, which is open to Victorian not-for-profit community groups, celebrates local stories and supports the important work done by community groups across the state. “Across Victoria, networks of dedicated volunteers and community organisations are taking on the responsibility of telling their local stories, ensuring they are preserved for future generations,” Batchelor said. “These stories – and the documents, objects and photographs that support them – reflect our rich and diverse society and build understanding of where we have come from and where we are going and through these grants we want to support that work.” The programme is open to all not-for-profit community groups, with applications closing on Friday, November 19.

Artist surfs the world BY ELEANOR WOODS SURFING is embedded in Torquay artist Phil Hayes’ psyche – so it is only fitting that the playfully political pop-art fanatic should still call the Surf Coast home despite being a global roamer. Hayes’ latest offering, an exhibition called Surfboards and other Icons, is currently on display at UFO Gallery, in Hong Kong. “I am very happy with it and it has sold really well, so the punters must like it as well,” Hayes said. It is the second time the Surf Coaster has exhibited at UFO Gallery, adding to a long list of accolades for the accomplished artist. Hayes’ works reflect the cultural differences between Australia and Hong Kong. Artworks on canvas, surfboards and mailboxes feature the infamous Mao and Bruce Lee juxtaposed with Australian wildlife, road signs and surfers – all screaming Hayes’ style. He describes his work as “Warhol meets Mao at a Banksy exhibition – pop/street art”. Surfboards and Other Icons follows on from last year’s Australese exhibition at UFO Gallery, which also fused elements of cultures and reflected the artist’s apt perceptions. “I get inspired by many things,” he said. It has been a lifetime in the making for the man who “cannot remember a time when I wasn’t an artist”. Prolific Hayes’ work has graced the walls of some of the world’s prestigious galleries and has featured in more than 150 group shows; his latest solo effort will make 10 in his name alone. His work is held in public and private collections all over the world – from Japan to the United States… even in Lithuania. An ex-teacher and fine art lecturer, Hayes worked as the head designer at RipCurl and

Quiksilver, making the move to live in Hong Kong and to take the role of Quiksilver’s head of global research and development. “I have been coming to Hong Kong for around 15 years,” he said. “I grew up on the south coast in Portland but I lived in Torquay for around 16 years and I have some very good friends there and my daughter is there so it will always feel like home.”

Partnership recognised with state art award A 30-YEAR partnership between Geelong Performing Arts Centre (GPAC) and Alcoa Point Henry has been recognised with a prestigious statewide arts award. The Victorian winners of the Australian Business Arts Foundation (AbaF) Awards were presented last week, with GPAC and Alcoa taking out the Bytecraft Entertainment Commitment Award. They are now one of three partnerships in the running for the national AbaF award, which will be presented in Sydney on October 21. The partnership has not only survived – but

flourished – across three decades and represents an outstanding example of arts and business growing together to achieve a shared vision of community access to the arts in Geelong, Surf Coast and Bellarine. The partnership began with the inception of the performing arts centre in 1981 when Alcoa claimed the naming rights to the dance studios and courtyard at the venue. Today, Alcoa is the naming rights sponsor of GPAC’s annual subscription theatre season, the Alcoa Theatre Season.

Alcoa’s support enables GPAC to improve accessibility to the arts and ensure unsurpassed quality in terms of programming. GPAC general manager, Jill Smith, said the award recognised a successful and enduring partnership. “GPAC and Alcoa share a strong commitment to engaging residents with the arts. Alcoa’s continued support enables us to provide people of all ages and backgrounds with opportunities to become involved in the arts,” she said. The partners are currently midway through

their second three-year agreement for the theatre season. The partnership engages staff at many levels, from volunteering to attending theatre season shows. “Over the past 30 years, Alcoa’s support has expanded from the relative safety of bricks and mortar, to children and education, through to the most innovative and high-risk elements of arts programming,” Smith said. “One thing that hasn’t changed is Alcoa and GPAC’s vision of performing arts playing a vital role in the life of our community.”

Your letters should not exceed 250 words.

Dear Editor, I have often threatened to ‘put pen to paper’ so to speak, but as so often happens, time just passed. However, this time I was too angry and dismayed. I suppose when the Surf Coast Shire was brave enough to send out their brochure ‘Where Do My Rates Go?’, stating how much each individual property contributed to various council services, etc., they must have known there would be some comment! I was appalled to see that my property’s rates paid $131.15 for council and executive support, $76.38 for information technology, and yet positive ageing only received a mere $37.65. How can this be? Our older citizens are just so much more important than many of the items included in this brochure, and yet this is all that is set aside for their care. Many of them have contributed so much to this shire and council – much of it voluntary and much still ongoing – while some of the other (sub) committees appear top-heavy and possibly overpaid.

More should be done to catch the real hoons Dear Editor, I have been fined for speeding on the Torquay Esplanade doing 55 kilometres per hour in a 50km/h zone. I take full blame for doing the wrong thing, but what really annoys me is the person that sits in the back of his unmarked car pinching people for minor infringements when he should be out on the highway catching the real hoons doing up to 30km/h over the 100km/h speed limit. These people in most cases are contractors and not even members or the police. Obviously it is easier for this lot to catch the everyday mums, dads and grandparents doing a few kilometres over the speed limit rather than the real criminals that could kill someone on the highway.

More than 1,330 VICSES volunteers from more than 120 VICSES units throughout Victoria were involved in the flood response. They were supported by other organisations, including volunteers from CFA, St Johns Ambulance and Red Cross.

Dear Editor,

One in five regional Victorians work in the food and beverage sector, showing just how important this industry is to our state’s prosperity and liveability. And there’s a great chance that your children will also be an important part of this industry as it expands. That’s why our Government is rising to the challenge of ensuring local food and drinks are the first choices for Victorians to put on their plates. This month we have launched the Spring Graze campaign under the Put Victoria on Your Table program which is backed by $200,000 in support from our Government. The Spring Graze campaign involves more than 50 events presented by Victorian restaurateurs, providers, producers and manufacturers, each showcasing the best spring produce and wine regional and rural Victoria has to offer. Through this campaign we hope that more Victorians will discover the fresh, high quality food and beverages produced in our state, and will buy local to continue supporting jobs in this vital sector. This will be further complemented by the upcoming Royal Melbourne Show which will feature a variety of exhibitions from local food and beverage producers. With an annual turnover of over $25 billion and exports of $5.6 billion, Victoria’s food and beverage industry is a significant contributor to the economy. With continued support from our Government, including $1 billion towards the Food Bowl Modernisation Project, I’m confident that regional Victoria’s food and wine will be placed on more Victorian tables, meaning more jobs and greater

Fire preparation remain a priority Dear Editor, I announced a Royal Commission into the devastating 2009 bushfires to prevent such a disaster from ever happening again. Today, I am as determined as ever to make Victoria as fire-safe and fire-ready as possible. Our government has now accepted in part or in full 66 of the 67 final recommendations from the Bushfires Royal Commission. Before finalising that response, we listened to the views of over 1,500 people at public meetings across the state. We will now invest $867.3million in historic reforms, including employing 612 new career firefighters and 231 seasonal firefighters; a tougher maintenance regime for electricity businesses; tripling fuel reduction burns; and more support for our volunteer firefighters. We’ll also replace the fire services levy with a progressive property-based levy, so everyone with a property protected by our firefighters contributes their fair share. Since Black Saturday, our government has introduced measures to improve how Victoria prepares for and responds to bushfires – including better and faster community warnings and a major boost to community education and information. I encourage readers to learn more about our

I want to express my absolute disgust and anger at the three students from Torquay College involved in killing a kangaroo while on school camp. I ask ‘where were the teachers as this was happening?’ What values (or lack thereof) are these ‘children’ being taught at home for such an act to enter their heads? I also ask what stance the school will be taking in disciplining them? Unless this calculated, senseless and sickening act of cruelty is acted upon seriously by the school, one would have to wonder what sort of message are we sending these little darlings. Well done to whoever reported it to the RSPCA. As parents of a nine-month-old baby girl my husband and I are already instilling an appreciation of the environment and animals in her. She will be an asset to the planet rather than a drain. She will attend a school which teaches good Christian values and respect for all living things. It must provide suitable disciplinary action to those who perform such callous, cruel and inhumane acts. I commend Torquay College for their environmental centre. Lets continue the theme by showing these children they can’t treat any living thing in this way. I hope the students are expelled and given the full force of the law. To the parents of these children, I say ‘take responsibility for what you brought into this world.’ Kathy Scanlon and Gary Welsh Torquay

Website improves property search July rental vacancy rates THE MOST recent release of the REIV’s residential vacancy rates shows that there has been no improvement in the rental market and, as a result, government policy settings need to be reviewed. In the Institute’s experience, a balanced market is when renters can find a rental home that meets their needs and investors are able to get a decent return on their investment. This occurs when the vacancy rate is around three per cent, a situation not seen in Melbourne since January 2005 when it was 3.3 per cent. In regional Victoria the last time this occurred was in November 2006. Low vacancy rates result in higher rents and increase the time it takes renters to secure a new home – neither of which is a desirable situation. The vacancy rate for Melbourne in July was 1.7 per cent compared to 1.5 per cent in June. The most difficult location to find a vacant rental home was in the outer suburbs, where the vacancy rate was 1.3 per cent. The inner suburbs recorded a vacancy rate of 1.7 per cent and the middle suburbs recorded 1.8 per cent. In regional Victoria key centres faced tighter markets than in Melbourne. In Geelong the vacancy is 1.2 per cent, in Bendigo it was 0.4 per cent – the same as Ballarat. In conjunction with initiatives to increase the rate of dwelling construction, the State Government needs to put in place policies that will encourage more private investors into the market. A good start would be to stop charging private investors higher rates of stamp duty. It seems incongruous that at a time when more rental homes are needed the State Government charges an extra $2,700 in stamp duty on an affordable $400,000 home.

nearest LJ Hooker agent direct from their iPhone. “We are constantly striving to provide customers with innovative and useful tools to search for properties,” Hooker said. “Buyer behaviour is constantly changing and with this application we can accommodate the needs of customers who require information on the go. “Whether travelling on business abroad or simply looking for property locally, this new application allows customers to view listings that match their personal criteria without the constraints of sitting in front of the computer.” The iPhone application comes bundled with SunLocator. An Australian real estate industry first, Sunlocator is an innovative tool allowing customers to view the location of the sun through the camera in their phone. Recent Australian Bureau of Statistics findings on environmental views showed three quarters of Australians surveyed are concerned about climate change with nine out of 10 people taking steps to limit their electricity use in the year prior to the survey. “SunLocator’s functionality enables customers to

visit a property and track the path that sunlight travels over any given day – overlaid on the camera screen of their phone,” Hooker said. “Predicting a property’s sun exposure can help to plan the position of outdoor rooms, clothes lines and even solar panels and meet the needs of environmentally conscious customers who wish to manage their household energy output. “Our customers repeatedly give feedback on solutions they need to aid information gathering and decision-making in their busy lives. “We have listened and believe these innovations harness the best technology available to make any property search as personal and comprehensive as possible.”

Friendly face joins the First National team FIRST National Real Estate Torquay is excited to announce the appointment of Karin Walters to the sales team. Having commenced her sales career in Geelong with a leading real estate company, Walters decided the time was right for a change and opted to commence selling in her home town of Torquay. Becoming a real estate agent fulfilled a lifelong

dream for Walters, having held a passion for the industry, including buying, selling and renovating her own properties. It is this enthusiasm that has translated into many successful outcomes throughout her real estate career. Having previously worked as a business manager and property manager, as well as running

a successful family business, she understands the importance of hard work and determination. Her many years of experience, friendly approach and commitment to customer satisfaction ensures her clients receive the best possible service every time. Karin Walters can be contacted at the office on 5261 6838 or mobile 0403 746 686.

Haskins earns accreditation BARRY Plant Torquay’s Chris Haskins is the newest accredited property manager for the group’s operations. Haskins, who manages the property management department with what has been described as “incredible determination”, has been recognised with this achievement. By earning such an honour she joins just 35 other representatives within the company to receive such recognition. “We are incredibly proud of Chris’s achievements,” said Barry Plant Torquay managing director, Glenn Hardman. “She has an excellent relationship with both landlords and tenants and her dedication to her clients has gained her an enormous amount of respect.” Property management is a heavy regulated industry and every property manager must stay abreast of the changes in the legislation and the complexities of the Residential Tenancies Act.

Whether you are enjoying some great blues and roots music on the QMF Express, sipping on a beverage at Train Bar with its live music stage, watching the sun set over The Lighthouse Stage or saying hi to the presenters in the Triple R tent, the ambience of this festival will dazzle you. When you’ve had enough of the music, you can always cruise down Hesse Street and wander through the markets or fill rumbling tummies at the many food stores designed to feed the soul as well as your hunger cravings. Queenscliff Music Festival is a great excuse to pack your bags for the weekend – or just plan a day trip – for a festival experience in a historic, beachside town with unique performances spaces and a tremendous wall of eclectic sound. Ticket options cater for any schedule, but be quick, they are selling fast. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit www. qmf.net.au or www.moshtix.com.au

New art; old style Tuesday 21 September 2010

AN EXHIBTION of some of Doug Wrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest abstract works was officially opened on Sunday at Queenscliffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Salt Contemporary Art. While heat guns, pots of wax, and frying pans are perhaps not materials readily associated with the production of fine art paintings, artist Doug Wright has

never been one to take the easy path. Instead he has preferred to challenge both his own, and his audienceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, ideas of what art really is. Salt director, Fiona Kelly, said Wrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s search for the elusive profound insight, the losing of oneself in the art making process, had lead to his use of encaustic

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or hot wax and coloured pigment â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to create his latest body of paintings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As an art medium, encaustic is probably unfamiliar to many, but it is by no means new,â&#x20AC;? Kelly said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The technique was used in the Egyptian Fayum mummy portraits of 100 to 300AD, and in more recent times by 20th Century American artists such as Jasper Johns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest body of paintings confirms just how competent an artist he is. The abstract works, many of which

Ballarat artist, Doug Wright, is currently exhibiting his work at Salt Contemporary Art in Queenscliff.

are small, intimate studies, draw the observer closer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is a strong sense that looking at Doug Wrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work is not a passive experience for there are secrets hidden

within the layers of the work, ready to be revealed to the attentive viewer.â&#x20AC;? The Doug Wright exhibition is on now at Salt in Hesse Street and will close on October 7.

Tickets are selling fast for the Bellarineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Charity Masquerade Ball to raise funds for national depression initiative, Beyond Blue, and Think Pink for breast cancer patients. The ball of mystery and fun will be held at the Potato Shed in Drysdale on October 9, with entertainment by Figjam.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

CORKS CREW CELLARS

The ‘Peak’ of Perfection IF YOU love a good red, then it’s hard to go past the deliciousness of a good Sangiovese. The famous reds of the Tuscany region, most notably Chianti, are predominantly based around the indigenous ‘Sangiovese’ red grape – a powerhouse of potential that, if properly produced, rarely disappoints. Australia’s contribution to its popularity has grown and grown over the last 20 years or so as more and more winemakers get a handle on the vagaries of the variety. The one constant I find with the wines featured here is the outstanding value for money they all represent, albeit at differing price points. They’re designed to complement a whole range of food styles and would be perfect served with any great spring/ summer dishes over the coming months.

De Bortoli Windy Peak Sangiovese 2008 ($13) This has got to be one of the best releases to date of this wine… It always gets a decent mention in dispatches anyway, but I think this vintage takes the cake, both for flavour and value. Soft and fragrant with varietal ‘tar and roses’ notes on the nose, which flow through to the very flavoursome palate that is all tempered cherry fruit ripeness, savouriness and spice. The weight and balance are very fine indeed, making this wine of the week in my book. However, you should make sure you try and finish the bottle in one sitting (in moderation of course!), as the wine fell over (meaning, it was no good) the next day when I tried what was left of it!

Rustic reds and Italy go hand in hand and this is where Pike’s have tried to emulate the style coming out of Italy with a modern twist. Yes, there’s that savoury edge and wild herb aromas from the sangiovese component, but to make the wine a much more approachable, riper and easier drinking style, the winery has added a small amount of Merlot and Cabernet to give the wine added softness and structure resulting in a medium bodied wine redolent with ripe, bright cherry fruit flavours, and smooth gentle tannins.

F R I D AY N I G H T S

All Saints Estate Sangiovese Cabernet 2008 ($20)

CURRY NIGHT

North eastern Victoria’s Italian heritage is well documented and the wines are naturally slanted towards their style of winemaking, so too the foods they enjoy. Hence, this wine from Rutherglen stalwarts All Saints has an appealing, subtle rusticity to it, but then there’s this beautifully full and ripe modern twist to the blend of earthy, savoury sangiovese with gutsy dark fruited cabernet. Soft and alluring, it’s a great drink that you could wash down with a rich, slow cooked casserole… yep, this is a surprisingly good, if not great, find. Get on it!

Fun Day goes green Tuesday 21 September 2010

THE POTATO Shedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2010 Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Week Family Fun Day will be an environmentally friendly event after securing major sponsorship from Momentum Energy. With the help of Momentum, the Potato Shed is supporting the generation of new renewable energy by powering this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Family Fun Day with 100 per cent GreenPower. GreenPower is a government-accredited programme which allows customers support investment in renewable energy. When customers select GreenPower their energy company purchases new forms of renewable energy such as wind power, solar, mini-hydro and biomass on their behalf. Momentum Energy marketing manager, Natalie Davies, said the company was thrilled to be supporting the popular community event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Momentum are excited to support the community of Drysdale and the greater Geelong region through our sponsorship of such a valuable communityorientated event,â&#x20AC;? Davies said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Family Fun Day is a celebration of the energy that our arts and sporting organisations, families, volunteers and schools put into the development of the region.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our contribution of 100 per cent GreenPower is evident of our shared values with the Potato Shed of sustainability and community commitment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It demonstrates that we can all take a simple and low cost step towards delivering a sustainable future.â&#x20AC;? The free Family Fun Day â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to be held on Sunday, October 24 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will bring families together in a funfilled environment to celebrate the arts and life on the Bellarine Peninsula. The festivities will kick off at 11am with a free performance of The Three Little Pigs Go Green. Families will have the chance to participate in art and craft workshops, theatre demonstrations, plaster and easel painting, or perform on stage during an open mic session. Roving entertainers, face painting, stalls and games will also be on offer. For more details about the Family Fun Day or Geelong Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Week activities, contact the Potato Shed on 5251 1998.

Vue Grand’s earns top wine award THE VUE Grand’s impressive wine list has been recognised with a One Glass rating being awarded in the Gourmet Traveller Australian Wine List of the Year Awards. The iconic Queenscliff venue was presented the award following the efforts of food and wine manager, Caleb Fleet, who has dedicated the past 12 months to researching and fine tuning the wine list to showcase predominantly the local awardwinning wines of the region. Fleet said the criteria for the award focused on content, including regional and international wines, adequate list of spirits and beers, balance, suitability, presentation and pricing. “The wine list was submitted to a panel of Australia’s most respected food and wine writers, and we are really proud to have been awarded the One Glass rating,” he said.

“The One Glass rating means that the wine list was highly recommended by all judges. “To have all the judges endorse and recommend the wine list is really encouraging and shows that we have taken it in the right direction. “Comments really highlighted our regional focus, which is in line with our involvement with The Bellarine Taste Trail and also our series of Winter Wine Dinners.” The award comes at the same time as the highly successful Winter Wine Dinner Series, which has seen strong turnouts at recent dinners with Banks Road Winery and Curlewis. These dinners consist of five courses matched to multiple wines incorporating new releases, special release and back vintages. Tickets are available at $95 per person, through the Vue Grand direct on 5258 1544.

Art on show in Lorne THE SEVENTH Sogetsu Ikebana Exhibition was launched at Lorne’s Qdos Arts on the weekend. The annual exhibition – which runs through until October 3 – celebrates a unique collaboration between the ceramicist and sculptor, Graeme Wilkie, and Sogetsu master, Christopher James. Wilkie, driven by a passionate relationship with clay and creativity, develops fluid beautiful shapes, which inspire James and his students to use the medium of Sogetsu to embrace Wilkie’s work. They use a diverse range of materials,

Go retro with the little big band THE MATT Dwyer Little Big Band will mix up a hot gumbo of blues, jazz, acid jazz, funk and soul to create a retro lounge vibe at the Sleepy Hollow Blues Club this weekend. While the venue may be different on Sunday due to the UCI World Championships, you can be assured of the same great atmosphere and music when the club hosts its monthly gig at The Black Hatt. The Matt Dwyer Little Big Band are stylish performers who can produce cool, ambient music as well as stepping it up to fill a dancefloor. Guitarist Dwyer had become an established and respected veteran of the roots music scene by the team he was in his 20s. With The Bondi Cigars, Dwyer cemented his reputation as one of the best guitarists in the country, picking up a Rhythms Magazine award for best live Australian blues band in 1996. He also played with The Louisville Sluggers; during this time The Louisville Sluggers appeared on every television network and served as the house band on Channel Nine sports/variety show Sam

and the Fat Man. In 2001, Dwyer moved from his home town of Sydney to Melbourne, a decision which has proved to be one of the best heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever made. Since moving to Melbourne, he has established himself not only as a sideman, playing with Louis Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Liars Club, Nina Ferro, Bob Valentine, The Shuffle Club, Eugene Hamilton, Chris Wilson, Matt Taylor and Angry Anderson, but as

  

Â&#x2030;

a band leader, singer and songwriter. The Matt Dwyer Little Big Band will be at the Sleepy Hollow Blues Club â&#x20AC;&#x201C; held at The Black Hatt, 54 Little Myers Street, Geelong â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from 6pm on Sunday. As always, the jam session kicks off at 3pm, so bring your instruments and strut your stuff prior to the main attraction and the barbecue from 6.30pm. Entry is free and for more information, phone Marg Rubans on 0434 126 644.

Exploring the silent wilderness GEELONG Gallery has launched a new exhibition, titled Silent Wilderness â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 19th century Australian landscapes. The exhibition â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which opened on the weekend and runs through until November 21 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; explores the genre of wilderness painting in Australian art during the 19th century, with a particular emphasis on works created at the height of the genreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popularity from the mid-1850s to the mid-1860s. It was during this decade that newly arrived, European-trained artists such as Nicholas Chevalier and Eugène von GuĂŠrard played a key role in fostering demand for spectacular wilderness subjects within the wider field of Australian landscape painting. Both artists accompanied explorers and scientists on their expeditions throughout the colony â&#x20AC;&#x201C; noted meteorologist, Georg Balthasar von Neumayer, as well as natural scientist

Alfred Howitt â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and it was through these experiences that Chevalier and von GuĂŠrard gained even greater access to the vistas that inspired romantic wilderness paintings (defined broadly here as mountain ranges, waterfalls, forests and lakes). Works by Chevalier and von GuĂŠrard in the exhibition that depict locations such as the Parker River waterfall at Cape Otway, Cumberland Creek near Apollo Bay, Mount Arapiles in the Wimmera, the Wannon Falls near Hamilton, as well as the Moroka River Falls in Gippsland and Mount Kosciusko in New South Wales, reflect the extent of the artistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; journeys with Howitt and Neumayer, and, particularly in the case of von GuĂŠrard, his attention to topographical detail in depicting what was a foreign landscape. The gallery is situated at Little Malop Street, Geelong, and is open 10am-5pm daily with free entry.

Time to showcase your talents LOCAL music performers have until this weekend to submit their material in the Telstra Road to Tamworth national talent development programme for a chance to showcase their talent and get connected in the music industry. Six local musicians will be chosen to perform at the Geelong heat of the Telstra Road to Tamworth where they will be in contention for an ultimate prize package, including recording opportunities and a return trip to Nashville. The Geelong heat of the Telstra Road to Tamworth will be held at The Royal Geelong Show from 4pm on Saturday, October 16,

featuring performances by 2010 Country Music Awards of Australia Female Artist of the Year, Felicity Urquhart. She will be supported by local Melbourne singer/songwriter Jessica-Jade Bruce. The winning heat performer will receive a return trip to Sydney to take part in the next stage of the programme – Boot Camp, a twoday music mentoring workshop in December where they will have one-on-one time with leading industry professionals and work with a full band. Telstra Road to Tamworth Ambassadors, The McClymonts, said every musician who took part in Boot Camp last year matured and

developed as a performer and also gained new industry contacts, including other musicians to collaborate with. Local songwriters have until October 31 this year before entries close nationally in the songwriting category. The overall winners in both the performance and songwriting categories will receive a 12-month bespoke music mentorship and will be announced in January 2011 during the Tamworth Country Music Festival. For more details and to enter, visit www. telstra.com/trtt – but hurry, entries close at midnight this Sunday, September 26.

Setting a finance strategy TIRED of sitting on the sideline and want to score your financial goals sooner? According to Australia’s largest independently-owned mortgage broker, Mortgage Choice, by setting yourself a strategy or some goals, you can achieve those dreams you may never have thought possible. Here are some top tips to help you get your finances in shape: Cash up to cash in Saving your tax return or bonus, forgoing luxuries and/or selling assets with a high monetary value can help you achieve your goals sooner. Contribute this money into your savings account to increase your deposit for a first, next or investment property purchase. Interest in advance Investors with healthy cash flow and good savings habits might consider the tax advantages of an interest in advance home loan. These let you to pay, in advance, up to a year’s worth of interest, allowing you to claim the tax deduction in the current financial year. There are limitations to consider, eg. at the end of the interest in advance term the loan may need to be renegotiated or switched to another type, often at your expense. Also, because these are fixed rate loans, they are usually not as flexible as variable rate loans.

mind, keeping repayments stable over a fixed term. However, there may be fewer features on offer and you may incur significant costs to break and switch from the loan. Variable rate loans tend to be more flexible with features and the interest rate, but you must be prepared for rate rises. If you want to hedge your bets and take advantage of pros from each rate type consider splitting your loan between fixed and variable. Think outside the repayments Choosing a home loan requires more than finding the cheapest interest rate. There are so many other features to consider, such as the ability to make additional repayments, redraw extra funds and offset. For example, 100 per cent off-set accounts enable you to link a savings account with your home loan account and ‘off-set’ the amount to reduce the interest accumulated on the loan. To demonstrate, if you have

a 30-year $300,000 loan at 7 per cent and your $5,000 bonus is in a full offset account, the loan term would be reduced by one year and five months and you would save approximately $22,500 in interest. Match the loan type to your goals Think carefully about interest only versus principal and interest loans. Although paying only the interest will not reduce the loan amount, it will result in smaller monthly repayments, allowing you to make greater contributions to your principal place of residence or to invest in another asset, while the property grows in value through capital gains. In comparison, principle and interest loans help you repay your debt sooner as repayments cover all the interest plus some of the actual loan amount. For more information, visit www. mortgagechoice.com.au

Fixed repayments are luring Some lenders have started to reduce their fixed interest rates. However, Mortgage Choice’s May loan approval data showed just 3 per cent of new borrowers chose to fix. These loans can provide peace of

Market View with tracey watts

The psychology of a housing market

supply to rapidly increase. The Commonwealth Bank recently released a presentation on the Australian housing market directed towards international investors. The irony of the theme they were presenting of ‘safety’ and ‘Australia is different’ is that international investors have seen it all before. They have lived through most stages of a housing bubble and know the signs. When the value of property departs from unemotional economic measures such as rental breakeven and cashflow positive, value is then dependant on the emotions of enthusiasm, greed, denial, fear and finally capitulation. Attempts to justify ever increasing prices are part of the psychology of a bubble. So what is the psychology of an Australian property investor? The frenzy to get into a perpetually increasing housing market would be familiar but years of falling prices would not. The universal view is that property prices never fall – a dangerously one-sided view to hold.

THAT Australian residential property is overvalued, severely unaffordable and prime for a significant fall in price is clear on almost any measure you choose to use. This is, however, frequently ignored by property commentators who cite an alleged undersupply of housing to justify the continuation of current prices. In point of fact, Australia has never had so many houses or bedrooms per person in its history and has always built houses faster than population growth. What is remarkable is the number of unoccupied dwellings, which has increased rapidly against any measure of population. The data easily demonstrates that there is no structural shortage of houses in Australia. The perception of undersupply is no more than a fragile and temporary bubble caused by the low number of homes on the market. It only requires a change in demand dynamics (think interest rates, LVR, international credit crisis) for demand to evaporate, housing prices to fall, and market

Workplace injuries are proving costly

Local girls: Are you in? WOMEN throughout the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula are being encouraged to enjoy a Girls Night In â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all in the name of fundraising. Girls Night In is an event organized by the Cancer Council to raise money for women fighting breast or gynaecological cancer. To date, eight Surf Coast women have registered to host a Girls Night In to support the 4,000 Victorian women fighting breast or gynaecological cancer this year. Cancer Council Victoria is calling on more local women to get together to help reach its $1.2million target. Girls Night In has become a popular â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;excuseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for women to invite their friends around for a fun night in and donate what they would have spent on a night out towards Cancer Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work into womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cancers.

Cancer Council Victoria spokesperson, Barbara Fernandez, said last year 15 Girls Night In events were held in the Surf Coast with around 150 women joining together for the fight against womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cancers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year alone $1million was raised in Victoria to fund new innovations in womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cancer research, prevention and support services with more than $4,300 of that being raised right here in the Surf Coast region,â&#x20AC;? Fernandez said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We received 179 calls to our Cancer Council Helpline (13 11 20) from Surf Coast women in 2009. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Cancer Council Helpline is funded by events like Girls Night In, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear to see that when you join in Girls Night In, you really are making a difference to local women facing cancer.â&#x20AC;? To register for Girls Night In or for more information, visit www.girlsnightin.com.au or phone 1300 656 585.

TREATING workers for injuries costing little, or nothing, to prevent cost the Geelong and Surf Coast employers nearly $38million last year. WorkSafe is challenging the perception that injuries to muscles, tissues and bones happened in jobs where there was heavy lifting such as construction, agriculture or some aspects of manufacturing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Strains, sprains, fractures and breaks are caused by tasks like lifting, pushing, pulling, slips, trips and falls and account for 60 per cent of all workplace injuries in Victoria,â&#x20AC;? said WorkSafeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategic programmes director, Trevor Martin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many workers in child care, retail, hospitality and other sectors not generally considered â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;dangerousâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; suffer debilitating injuries every day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an issue that often slips under the radar because there is no blood on the floor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Statewide, injuries caused by lifting boxes, bags and other things, awkward postures, twisting, falling from relatively low heights and on slippery surfaces and repetitive work which strains the body cost more than $900million a year in treatment and rehabilitation costs.â&#x20AC;?

Families urged to get active SPORTS Minister James Merlino has challenged local families to be healthier and get more active by signing up to the Premierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Active Families Challenge. Joining Collingwood great, Nathan Buckley, and Olympic gold medallist, Leisel Jones, at the launch event recently, Merlino encouraged Torquay families to take up the 30-day challenge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Premierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Active Families Challenge is proof that we all can make some big changes to our general health and wellbeing by making simple changes in our daily routine,â&#x20AC;? Merlino said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More than 50,000 Victorians took part in the challenge last year and we are hoping more families take advantage of the warmer weather and sign up to get healthy and active. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As part of the challenge, families are encouraged to complete 30 minutes of physical activity a day for 30 days from October 2 until November 13, and we have learnt from previous campaigns that this can be the first step towards a healthier and more active lifestyle.â&#x20AC;? Merlino said each family who registered for the Premierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Active Families Challenge before October 15 would receive free passes to attend participating YMCA Centres across Victoria, a 15 percent discount at all Victorian Rebel Sport stores and one free child zoo pass. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Simple things like taking the stairs instead of the lift or walking to the local shops instead of driving are all practical ways people can make up 30 minutes of physical activity,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The challenge is fun, free and a great way to develop a lifetime of healthy habits, which can play a key role in turning the tide against diabetes and obesity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Research also shows the involvement of

parents in physical activity can increase a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s participation levels and making time in each day to be active with children can set them on a positive track for their future years.â&#x20AC;? Former Collingwood captain and current assistant coach, Nathan Buckley, said regular physical activity was an important part of his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s routine and he looked forward to taking the challenge.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;My wife Tanya and I enjoy taking our two young boys out for a walk or to the park,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Premierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Active Families Challenge is a great way to not only get active, but spend time with your family and just have fun.â&#x20AC;?

City Hall to turn blue GEELONGâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S City Hall will join iconic buildings around Australia this month by turning blue to promote Prostate Cancer awareness. Every night during September, City Hall will be lit up with blue lights kindly provided by local company LG Electrical Contractors. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all part of International Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, which aims to raise awareness and funds to help prevent this form of cancer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is something small we can do to help raise awareness of prostate cancer within our local community,â&#x20AC;? City of Greater Geelong Mayor, John Mitchell, said. The incidence of prostate cancer is increasing. It is anticipated that around 20,000 men in Australia will be diagnosed this year, with a mortality rate exceeding 3,300. In its early stages, prostate cancer has no symptoms and the disease may be advanced by the time it is detected. Statistics also indicate that the mortality rate in rural areas is 21 per cent higher than in urban areas. Mitchell encouraged local men to see their doctor for a simple test. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The earlier prostate cancer is detected the better the chances are of beating it, so make an appointment with your doctor today for a simple test,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a few minutes of discomfort, but it could save your life.â&#x20AC;?

SEP 21 - SEP 27 2010

Thursday’s Full Moon in Aries sees rampaging Rams at your rambunctious best – and worst. Plan plenty of physical activities for the next seven days (like exercise, sport, dancing or manual labor) so you can use up your excess energy in constructive ways. It’s time to take on challenges and channel the Warrior Man/Woman within!

Mood swings are likely as you try to get the balance right between your personal and professional lives. Expect workplace dramas as Thursday’s Full Moon highlights prima donna moments and petty jealousies. Schedule difficult tasks for another day, as you’ll have trouble keeping your mind on the job (and your emotions under control).

If you’re expecting loved ones to behave themselves on Thursday you’ll be sadly disappointed. They’ll have a hefty dose of Full Moon fever so throw etiquette out the window, let your perfectly coiffed hair down, and join the party. Don’t let a family member make an important decision for you on the weekend. Stand your ground.

The Full Moon falls in your intrigue zone, which could prompt you to behave in uncharacteristic ways that are a mystery even to you. Issues (and secrets) from the past could also arise as you make contact with an old friend, workmate or lover. Make sure you pay particular attention to your dreams – are they trying to tell you something?

Expect a volatile week as Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto all stir up your fiery temperament. Try to cool your hot head with a touch of humour (and humility). It’s not a good time to be stuck indoors otherwise you’ll just drive yourself (and those around you) crazy with your demanding divalike ways. Hey – just another normal week in Leo Land!

Get ready for Full Moon energy to disrupt your daily routine. Expect mood swings and emotional dramas – but also creative inspiration and spiritual insights. Avoid initiating (or getting drawn into) power games on Sunday. Scorpio is a sign of extremes and the Spring Equinox is the perfect time to bring more harmony and balance into your life.

It will be difficult to communicate with children, teenagers or friends this week (and they are likely to do the exact opposite of what you expect). Be patient and don’t jump to half-baked conclusions. If you pass on gossip or unverified information, you could end up with egg on your face. The Full Moon energises you to follow your dreams.

Vigilant Virgos love things to run efficiently but there’s manic, unpredictable Full Moon energy about this week so drop the strict schedule and just take things as they come. The full moonbeams stimulate your sex/money zone so expect some dramatic developments to do with lust or loot. Concentrate on saving rather than spending.

Promises are cheap! You’re keen to help others, but don’t end up disappointing them by promising more than you can deliver. The Full Moon activates your drama zone, so those around you can look forward to some entertaining antics from yours truly. Expect everything from passion and flamboyance to arguments and dummy-spits.

The Sun moves from Virgo into Libra, which highlights your welldeveloped perfectionist streak. Give yourself (and others) the freedom to experiment and stuff-up along the way. As birthday great Sophia Loren reminds us “It’s better to make mistakes than to play it safe. Mistakes are part of the dues one pays for a full life.”

You’re in the mood for a spontaneous spending spree but is that a sensible idea? Channel your excess energy into finding original ways to make money – rather than spend it. You usually hide your true feelings behind a cool façade but you’ll be more open this week, as the Full Moon encourages you to say things you’d normally keep to yourself.

Avoid being a passive Piscean; too hesitant to try anything new. With Jupiter and Uranus in your sign, it’s time to be a feisty and adventurous Fish. Be inspired by Christopher Reeve (born on September 25) “Either you stay in the shallow end of the pool or you go out in the ocean.” When it comes to investments, adopt a long-term view.

The waves have been sensational for the past month and the coming week looks set to treat these talented and enthusiastic youngsters to more great waves. The event will run at Jan Juc from Tuesday through to Thursday and, if by chance the swells get too big for Jan Juc, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tackle perfect waves at Torquay Point. Byron Bay youngster Soli Bailey is one of the best 15-year-old surfers in the world, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be the one to beat in the 16 years boys division of this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Rip Curl GromSearch.

Just to win a ball you needed Par, so it may just seem we are starting to enjoy the improved weather. In the ladies section, ladies handicap manager Angela Royal pipped Marg Burchell on countback, both with 71 nett. As with all the stroke events the ladies play, there is a putting competition and this week Sue Gregory took the prize in a three-way countback. Sunday mixed Stableford was won by Brett Postans 41 points Looking ahead Four-ball Par for the men on Tuesday; third and final round of the 54-hole Four-ball Par Aggregate for the ladies on Wednesday; Sunday is a Mixed Fourball Stableford, always a great day to play with your partner, and it will be a good day if at the end you are still on speaking terms.

Charlie Celi picked up the NTP on the 5th scoring a magnificent hole in one! The ever-consistent Dean Bernasconi picked up his usual one NTP each week on the 7th hole, while Marianne Bridgart and Ian Mathieson claimed the prizes on the 13th and 17th holes. Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competition Thursday was the first 4BBB event to be held using the new â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;most likely scoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; method of scoring which all clubs will have implemented by January 1, 2011. There was definitely some confusion among the ladies with quite a few not really grasping the concept at first, however, after some intense Q&A after their round to the Pro Shop staff, the next four-ball event should run very smoothly (we look forward to seeing how the men will handle the changes). Two teams who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any trouble at all with the scoring were the pairs of Sally Ludlow and Kathy Simson who won the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event with 47pts on a

Mattâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tips Master Matt is back from the border and maybe secretly he is sharing this with us for a reason â&#x20AC;&#x201C; however, this is great information. How to reduce your slice The slice is one of the most frustrating shots in golf for the majority of golfers. The reason golfers slice is that they impart left to right spin on the ball because they cut across the ball from an outside to in path on the downswing (like a slice forehand in tennis). One way to help prevent this problem is to try and hit the inside quadrant of the ball and have the feeling that the club head is approaching the ball from the inside and hitting out towards the target. A drill to help get this feeling is for a right handed golfer to pull their right foot back so it is six inches behind the left foot, still keeping your stance width. Swing to the top of your backswing then you want to have the feeling of the club swinging down along your feet line to hit the ball. When doing this remember to let your hands roll over other wise the ball will stay out to the right.

countback from Deb Hocking and Gillian Connelly. The NTP winners were Joan Anderson on the 7th hole and Loretta Hunter on the 13th both hitting their tee shots to within tap-in distance. Paulette Payne was the clear winner of Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competition with a brilliant score of +5. Other news Newly joined member, Luke Allen, recently played in the victorious Victorian Colts team, in the Australian Colts Interstate Team Series. Luke teamed up with Jack Wilson in the foursomes matches to claim 3.5 points from their five matches. Luke also managed to win two out of his four singles matches against tough opposition. Deyen Lawson continued his winning ways claiming his third straight Lonsdale Open. This win makes it three in three weeks having already won the Portarlington and Ocean Grove opens.

Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s competition The Wednesday men were greeted with a full 18 holes this week, after having to skip the 14th and 15th holes the previous week due to the number of workers and heavy machinery that was required to fill in bunkers on those holes (however, most men didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seem to mind having to skip two holes for the sake of having a few less bunkers on the course!). The conditions made scoring very difficult, although in spite of the wind Ian Denning came away with a win on 38pts, just edging out Stuart Cations and morning player Keith Rixon on a countback. Daryl Yelland won the NTP on the 7th while new member Gordon Muir claimed the prize on the 13th. The men on Saturday were playing Par with 17 of the top 20 players coming from the B Grade section â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Michael Walker being the standout of this group with a wonderful score of +5, Chris Fryar took the A grade honours on +1.

Slater back on top KELLY Slater showed that age has not dimmed his immense talents with victory in the 2010 Hurley Pro at Trestles. The 38-year-old proved too good for Australia’s Bede Durbidge in flawless six-foot waves. Event number six of 10 on the 2010 ASP World Tour, the Hurley Pro at Trestles culminated with Slater collecting an unprecedented 43rd elite tour victory. “What can I say? What a week,” Slater said. “We looked at the swell forecast and Pat (O’Connell) and I were talking, going ‘look what we’re going to get this week’. “I’ve got to thank Bob Hurley and the whole Hurley crew. I think they just brainstormed and put a lot of good ideas together for us. The experience was just awesome.” The win was Slater’s fourth elite tour win at Lower Trestles – following on from wins in 2005, 2007 and 2008. The triumpg also vaults Slater into the ratings lead in his hunt for an unprecedented 10th ASP World Title. “Looking back at my career, I never would have fathomed a ninth title, let alone a 10th,” Slater said. “I don’t know what to say. It’s still a long road ahead. We still have four events and I’m just trying to soak in this win and not even think about everything right now.” ASP WORLD TITLE RACE TOP 5 1 Kelly Slater (USA) 40,000 pts 2 Jordy Smith (ZAF) 35,500 pts 3 Taj Burrow (AUS) 30,500 pts 4 Dane Reynolds (USA) 30,250 pts 5 Mick Fanning (AUS) 29,500 pts

BATTLE begins in earnest today (Tuesday) for the Torquay women bowlers, with the first round of the 2010-11 pennant competition. Four teams, one in each division, have entered for this year’s Bellarine District competitions, and they begin the competition with high hopes of improved showings on last year. The men’s section has one more warm-up match, against Bareena on Sunday, after battling the elements over the past two Saturdays in trials against Anglesea and Highton. With about a dozen new and returning faces about the place and some solid form being shown by our beginners, the men are quietly confident of strong showings by their four pennant teams this year. They also will be sporting a brand new look with the bright blue ‘tsunami’ shirts being replaced by a predominantly white shirt, but still sporting a strong Torquay wave motif. The new outfits come thanks to a very generous sponsorship from Hocking Stuart.

Familiar faces return

Around the clubhouse, the Friday night stalwarts are now being bolstered in numbers by those returning from wintering in warmer parts, and both the meals and bar are enjoying improving numbers. The meals remain close to the best value in town, and are likely to become even more popular as people start gravitating back to prepare holiday homes and caravans for the summer. With the football over for most, thoughts now turn to such matters and the double-edged deal of quality meals and Torquay’s cheapest bar prices are proving a winner. It is a good idea to give the club a call and book a table from now on. Photo: ASP/ROWLAND

Ocean Grove the place to be WHILE Geelong is preparing for the UCI Road Cycling Championships, Ocean Grove girls are preparing for the 2010 Billabong Girls Get Out There event. The first weekend of October is expected to provide a huge end to the coming school holidays, with the three-state girl’s surf tour – and cycling enthusiasts – converging on Ocean Grove. Billabong Girls marketing manager, Kate McGrath, said 128 Ocean Grove girls would be able to hang out on the beach with pro surfers. Professional surfers attending the event include Bec Woods and Paige Hareb, Billabong ambassadors Alana Brennan, Paige Houden and Rebecca Ronald, Olympic snowboarder, Steph Hickey, and Save the Whales crusader, Skye Bortolli. McGrath said Billabong’s annual Girls Get

Out There Tour would also encourage girls to unleash their “inner surf girl with a 90-minute professional learn to surf lesson and shake it Latin-style on the sand in a 45-minute Zumba class”. Ambassador Alana Brennan will lead the Zumba lesson, which is a new, exciting addition to the event for 2010 and the latest dance craze to hit Australia. She said was excited about bringing dance to the beach. “I love the impact it has on people, it makes people happy and it’s also a great new way to stay healthy,” Brennan said. There will also be live entertainment and lots of competitions with great prizes, giveaways and fun on Ocean Grove’s surf beach. The Girls Get Out There event aims to bring girls together with their friends for a great day of outdoor fun in a safe, active and healthy environment.

“We are so excited for this year’s line up of surf, Zumba and fun, and for girls Australiawide to join us for a positive and active day out among some of the stars,” McGrath said. “Girls Get Out There Tour is an awesome way to kickstart your summer.” The Billabong Bus will be road-tripping south from Queensland, kicking off in Bundaberg on Thursday, hitting the New South Wales coast, including Bondi and Cronulla, before rounding out the east coast tour in Ocean Grove on October 3. With school holidays starting this week, any girls aged 12 years and older who are interested in being part of the huge beach event should register now as places are limited. To find out all the information about the event, visit www.girlsgetoutthere.com.au For other holiday events and activities in the region, check out the Bellarine Times’ holiday guide on pages 18 to 21.

The signs are back

And while on the subject meals, please don’t be put off by the signs being missing from the front of the club. It would appear that someone didn’t want it to be known. To the low-lifes who stole them, you won’t win. New signs are back and we will just have to attract even more customers to cover the cost to replacing them. People appreciate value when they see it.

Torquay Tigers held their presentation evening on Friday night, with Anna Masek taking out the A Grade netball best and fairest title and Brent Christie winning the first grade football best and fairest award.

as an anchor for the sand at the mouth, possibly contributing to the mouth being unable to open of its own accord. A few years back the Surf Coast Shire and CCMA made a joint announcement they were going to remove the groyne, however, the agreement between the Surf Coast Shire and CCMA was never kept. Now we have had another ‘fish kill’ occur in this system. Both EPA and DPI responded to the kill and carried out tests. In this case low PH levels in the river are causing the kill as now reported by the EPA, even though initially I was told it was high levels. To alleviate residents concerns, extensive monitoring of the Alcoa plant took place to see if it was in anyway responsible, the result as originally reported to me was that it wasn’t , and that it may in fact be helping dilute some of the possible high PH levels. The information I have is that dissolved alumina is being washed into the system from the surrounding lands, this is what causes the bright blue-ish colouring. Most of the dead fish until now have been seen at the mouth of the river, where they tried to escape to. It is time the community demanded a total study of the river take place and that members of the community be invited to take part in this process. This is a ongoing problem that must be addressed and that cannot be ignored any longer.

THIS week I would like to bring everyone’s attention to an issue that should be of extreme concern not only to Anglesea residents, but to everyone who lives on the Surf Coast. The Anglesea River has long been the jewel in the crown of the Surf Coast, but whose health has for too long been ignored by local government departments. For the last 40-odd years the river has been on a downhill slide. Originally an estuarine system that opened irregularly to the ocean, it now can only be opened by our intervention. It is a system which reportedly used to have whiting, trevally, flathead, salmon, bream, mullet and mulloway; now, only a few of these species are left in the system. Fisheries recently considered the system for a marine stocking programme, but found the health of the water inadequate to consider it for such a programme. The Surf Coast Shire is responsible for the opening of the system and, though I have been constantly referring to the need for the system to be opened due to the continuous flooding and damage being done to infrastructure along the river, as well as the health of the system, this has yet to occur as I write this column. Anglesea River has a long history of neglect as well as mismanagement by some government authorities over these last 40 years.
