HIT THE WALL BY JAMES TAYLOR

CONCERNED locals at Point Lonsdale hope the improvement of the town’s foreshore will also include measures to prevent further erosion of the beach. As revealed in last week’s Bellarine Times, the federal government has contributed $500,000 towards the Borough of Queenscliffe’s project to beautify the Point Lonsdale streetscape. However, there have been no announcements from the council about increasing the number of groynes – long structures that jut out from the shore to reduce erosion – on the Point Lonsdale beach. Groynes were first built in 1935 in an attempt to retain a sandy beach, and there have been several other works since then to

protect the Point Lonsdale coastline. The timber groynes have since been replaced by three concrete structures, but surfer and sea pilot Dean Zanoni said the existing works were not enough to protect the beach from storms. “There’s been nothing to support sand being put against the wall; the concrete and grout is getting cut out from underneath. “It could fall over in the next six months if nothing happens. “The cliff face is also being undermined. “When winter comes, we get big swells, and the promenade is sometimes almost ankle-deep in water. “If (the council) is prepared to do something, we’re willing to get on a committee to work something out.” Local builder David Rowe moved to Point

Lonsdale in the early 1990s, and said he remembered how the removal of the groynes soon afterwards affected the area. “We lost the whole beach. “With five years of pressuring the council and the state member, we finally got the groynes back in and they worked really well – we had sand back on the beach within a week.” Mr Rowe said two or three groynes at the southern end of the beach would help solve the issue, but there would need to be consultation about their design and placement. “You would need to be careful because of the surf break, it could upset the surfers.” At time of publication, Borough of Queenscliffe chief executive officer Lenny Jenner was unavailable for comment.

BARWON Coast, your local coastal foreshore manager, has the responsibility for the management of 13 kilometres of coastal Crown land from Collendina to Blue Rocks including our beautiful beaches in Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads and 13th Beach. We are also the manager of the Port of Barwon Heads and operate two large coastal caravan parks – Barwon Heads Caravan Park and the Riverview Family Caravan Park, Ocean Grove plus the Riverside Camping area. Our committee members are all local residents from Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads and are appointed by the state government following the public advertising for expressions of interest. RESEARCHING OUR SAND DUNES Our natural resource management team has been busy setting up research quadrats throughout sections of our coastal reserves between Ocean Grove and 13th Beach. These research sites will provide us with knowledge of change overtime with regards to vegetation quality and native fauna living within our reserves. More recently, however, within these research sites, we are seeing an increase in the number of both people and dogs leaving the walking tracks and entering these research sites. Even though you may not have been aware that this research is being conducted, we would like to remind people that the pathways are installed for use by people. We encourage all users of our foreshore reserves to assist us with this research by remaining on the formalised pathways and ensure your dog remains

also on the pathway by keeping them on a lead. Together we can create positive change and ensure we have a healthy coastal environment for future generations. DOMESTIC ANIMALS As the colder weather creeps in so does the increase in sightings of domestic animals within our coastal reserves. Within a week we have had the unfortunate incident of two lost dogs and two cats. One dog was able to be returned to its owner as the micro chipping information relating to the dog was correct. It was extremely unfortunate and disappointing to our staff that the remaining dog and two cats could not be returned to their owners due to the owners not updating their contact details with their vet or the City of Greater Geelong. One of the remaining animals was not micro chipped, so we have no way of knowing who owns

this very large, friendly cat. We were therefore left with no choice but to hand the animals into the Geelong Animal Welfare Centre in hope that the owners care enough to ring the centre with a view to reclaim their pets. To prevent your pets wandering please ensure they are kept in a safe yard and are desexed. More importantly please update your contact details with your vet and the City of Greater Geelong to ensure your beloved pets can be returned to you quickly. Should you have a missing pet, call the Geelong Animal Welfare Centre on 5248 2091. I encourage you to contact me to discuss any issues related to coastal management in our region by phoning me on 5254 1371. Bob Jordan general manager

Gauging Grove rail interest BY DEAN WEBSTER FEDERAL Member for Corangamite Darren Cheeseman is continuing his push to bring rail to the Bellarine by launching his Bring the rail to Ocean Grove petition and community campaign last Friday in the town centre. The petition calls on the state government to undertake a feasibility study and submit a proposal for re-establishing the rail line from Geelong to Queenscliff to Infrastructure Australia for consideration for joint federal and state funding.

Mr Cheeseman’s petition comes after the recent state government budget commitment of $300,000 towards a feasibility study looking at rail to both Torquay and Drysdale. Mr Cheeseman said that re-establishing the line with a new station at Ocean Grove will link the Bellarine to Geelong and through to Melbourne by rail. “Ocean Grove is close to the current rail reserve from Geelong to Queenscliff, the rail line operated from 1879 until the 1970s when the line was shut, at its peak in January 1885 four trains per day ran in each direction, enabling the line to be used by

commuters,� he said. “I am asking the people of Ocean Grove to get behind the idea so we can make the pitch to re-open the Bellarine rail connection.� However Liberal candidate for the seat of Corangamite Sarah Henderson said what Corangamite residents need is a prosperous tourism industry and real, properly costed plans that are deliverable. “With Labor racking up $192 billion of net debt and without a credible plan back to surplus, Mr Cheeseman’s petition is nothing more than a desperate attempt to mislead his constituents.� Ms Henderson said she is a big supporter of better rail links for our region and commends the Victorian government for its recent announced of a $300,000 study to test the feasibility of new rail links from Grovedale to Torquay and South Geelong to Drysdale. Ocean Grove Community Association president John Fendyk said Mr Cheeseman’s plan had the association’s support. “(The association) welcomes any initiative that enhances transport opportunities for the people on the Bellarine to get between townships, to Geelong and Melbourne. “The proposal from the member of Corangamite Darren Cheeseman has merit, and the association would like to have the rail proposal expanded to have the capacity for a light rail on the old railway track that exists on the Bellarine. “This was a consideration in the 2006-16 Strategic Plan document, that gave in principal support to such a proposal.� Darren Cheeseman on the Bellarine heritage rail line at Marcus Hill

A GRANT awarded to the Ocean Grove Country Fire Authority by the Ocean Grove Community Enterprise will allow the brigade to publish a book detailing its 67-year history. At a presentation night last week at the Ocean Grove Bowling Club, it was announced that the brigade will receive $3,500 in funding for the project. Brigade treasurer Martin Geerings said the grant came just in time as the book is ready to go to the printers, having been meticulously put together by a CFA member who is a former librarian. “We feel really lucky, the brigade has a very rich history, there have been a lot of events and changes and we want to share that with our current and future members. “It’s even better now because our generous volunteers said they would pay for it if necessary and this means they won’t have to.� He said the brigade was extremely grateful to the Ocean Grove Community Enterprise for their support. “It’s tremendous, we certainly appreciate it.� The 160-page book is expected to go to print this week and will be presented to members at a brigade dinner on July 13.

MAY has been an exciting month for Ocean Grove stand up paddle boarder Kristi Page, who has just returned from her first international trip, placing fifth in the invitation only Performance Paddling Stand Up Paddle Pro Junior at Huntington Beach, California. Heading into the event, Page capitalised on fantastic autumn conditions at home, taking on heavy outer reef bomboras with mentors and fellow local chargers Courtney Dalton and Troy Aston. When she returned, Page secured her second state title in performance surfing at Phillip Island, and is currently on her way to going back to back in South Australia. “I was super excited to be going overseas, and for my first trip to go to such an iconic place, what more

could a surfer want,” Page said. “I’ve been pretty busy, this is the only week I’ve spent at home, but it has been nice to travel, and experience all the different cultures.” Page, 17, is leading the way for women in a sport that is enjoying increasing popularity, for its diversity and accessibility. Up against the world’s best in surfing and battle of the paddle disciplines, Page took the vote for most inspirational paddler at the Huntington Beach event. She said a highlight was being part of the first pro junior event that boasted equal prize money for both boys and girls. “It was the best experience, I had the best time, everyone was so hospitable, and Candice Appleby (Performance Paddling Pro Junior event director) has definitely set an example for junior events in

stand up paddling, and I’m hoping that can continue on.” Among 1,150 paddle boarders at the Stand up for the Cure event at Newport Beach the week following her fifth at Huntington, Page taught paddlers new skills and contributed to raising $125,000 for breast cancer. She also fulfilled a dream of surfing in Hawaii. Page will now turn her attention to the South Australian titles, and a Quiksilver Foundation charity event at Ceduna with supporters – Great Ocean Road Surf Tours. “It will be nice to be able to surf with other women, there will be five other girls there, so I’m looking forward to it. Hopefully we’ll get more girls into the sport.” For more stand up paddle board coverage, turn to page 73.

Davies to run for Greens in Corangamite BY JAMES TAYLOR AUSTRALIA’S third major political party has entered the fray in southern Geelong and the Surf Coast, with the Greens announcing their candidate for September’s federal election. Last week, former Borough of Queenscliffe councillor Lloyd Davies was preselected by the Greens to run in Corangamite. He said he promised to expand on his previous work by fighting hard for the issues affecting the Geelong, rural and coastal communities. “As a councillor I worked hard to create a more caring society. “I am proud to have been part of a council that provides a world class home and community care program.

“Working as a water engineer on projects like the Torquay recycled water scheme has enabled me to give back to my community, but there is so much more that needs to be done.� He said he was passionate about politics and proud of the Greens’ track record in Parliament. “Because the Greens are in the Federal Parliament and were able to achieve major reform in dental health, millions of children will soon be able to get dental treatment covered under Medicare.� Mr Davies grew up on the Bellarine Peninsula and went to secondary school in Geelong. He said he wanted the region to have a high quality education system. “Funding education properly is the benchmark for a society that values its people.� Victorian Greens leader Greg Barber said Mr

Davies’ preselection was important for the electorate. “This is a win for the Greens and the people of Corangamite. “I look forward to working with Lloyd to create a more caring society.� The Greens finished in third place at the 2010 federal election in Corangamite, with candidate Mike Lawrence receiving 10,713 votes (or 11.43 per cent of the total). Nominations for candidates will close 10 and 27 days after the writ for the election is issued, which is expected to be on August 12 for a September 14 election. For more information, head to aec.gov.au. Lloyd Davies has been preselected by the Greens for the 2013 election.

Just a little online respect BY JAMES TAYLOR CHILDREN need to learn their online etiquette and parents should play their part, according to a Geelong internet expert. Fiona Lucas is the author of Futureproof Your Kids, a book about protecting children in the social media playground, and has been working with Portarlington Primary School to help its pupils stay safe online. Her website, iRespect Online, is also a national finalist in Mamamia’s Most Clickable Women Awards. Last week was National Cyber Security Awareness Week, and Ms Lucas said people should build up their online skills as soon as possible. “The first 10 years for a child is such a time of innocence – you never, ever get that back.� She said she was not advocating censorship, but rather bridging the digital divide between parents and their children and creating an appreciation of how a person’s online reputation was formed.

“It’s not that you can’t say it, just be aware of what you’re doing.� She said letting children use social media unsupervised was akin to putting a five-year-old behind the wheel of a car. “Parents need to be a little more responsible, too. “Everyone sees children in kinder with an iPhone or iPad – I think sometimes we think of it as an electronic babysitter. “We sometimes have to take our parental instincts about giving them the cool stuff out of the picture.� Ms Lucas said parents had to establish a line of communication with their children, as that was the best way to prevent any online problems such as cyberbullying spiralling into something worse. “If your child doesn’t want you to see anything (online), that’s a warning bell.� She said parents had access to a trove of free information to learn about the issues, such as the federal government’s Stay Smart Online website. “When I started last year, I was actually surprised

by how much government information was out there – it’s rocketed in the past 12 months.� Head to irespectonline.com for more information.

Resort is nearly ready for business Q. What are your thoughts on the new RACV Torquay Resort?

News in brief

Annalee, Melbourne

Marlene Humplik, Torquay

Adam Forbes, Torquay

“It’s a beautiful building. I think they should have emphasised how many people it employs – I love the gym; it would inspire me to use it, if I were here.”

“I think it’s a bonus to Torquay. It’s the biggest thing we’ll get in town for a long time.”

“The building looks really good. Terrible carpet in the bistro, though. Foyer is nice; staff are nice.”

Unregistered pets face a fine COLAC Otway Shire has further tightened its laws regarding pets, and has warned it will hand out on-the-spot fines of $282 for any unregistered animals. There are about 6,500 dogs and cats in the municipality, and the latest figures show nearly a quarter had not been registered by the April 10 deadline. The shire announced its new policy last week, and chief officer Rob Small said the 1,500 unregistered pets was the worst result the council had recorded in recent years. In previous years, owners with multiple pets who failed to re-register their animals would receive just one fine from the council. However, Mr Small said the shire would now issue a fine for each unregistered pet.

SOUTHERN Rural Water has warned customers to beware of anyone phoning them on behalf of the water corporation asking for personal details. Managing director Clinton Rodda said that Southern Rural Water was alerted to the scam when a customer complained about an evening phone call. The caller, who claimed to be from Southern Rural Water, asked the customer for confirmation of personal details including name, address and date of birth. Mr Rodda said they were planning a joint survey with Melbourne Water but would never ask for personal details like date of birth. If you receive a phone call do not provide any personal information, and let Southern Rural Water know on 1300 139 510 or report to Consumer Affairs on consumer.vic. gov.au/scams or 1300 55 81 81.

New vehicle boosts Port firefighting BY HAMISH BROOKS THE state government has helped community groups boost the capabilities of country fire authority firefighters on the Bellarine Peninsula with the delivery of a new field command vehicle to the

Portarlington Fire Brigade. The government contributed $30,000 towards the $58,000 vehicle, of which the Portarlington Mussel Festival and Portarlington-Drysdale Lions Club contributed significant funding towards to make up the final amount. Brigade captain Darren Nesbit

extended his thanks to the government, community groups and volunteers for the work they had done and for attending the official vehicle handover ceremony. “The vehicle is going to enhance our firefighting ability and the brigade’s capacity to respond to and control incidences. Thanks to all the brigade and community members who were involved and attended the presentation.” Member for Western Victoria David Koch, representing the Minister for Police and Emergency Services Kim Wells, was handed over the $58,000 field command vehicle last. “The vehicle replaces the Brigade’s 2006 Nissan Patrol field command vehicle and boasts a custom-made back, which will allow the brigade to transport additional fire fighting equipment and a Quick Fill Pump,” Mr Koch said. “It will assist the brigade during incidents where there is limited access due to difficult terrain or non-articulated water supplies in areas such as the Portarlington Pier, Coastal Reserves, the Bellarine Rail Trail, caravan parks and boat harbours.” Mr Koch said the vehicle was purchased using funding from the government and the local community. “The government has made $30,000 available for the Bellarine Group to buy this vehicle through the Victorian Emergency Services Equipment Program (VESEP). The group have also done a marvellous job by raising an incredible $28,000 within their communities,” Mr Koch said.

Community partnership helps children STAFF from local health insurance provider GMHBA spent a day volunteering at Cottage by the Sea last week as part of a program that helps local children who are facing difficult challenges in their lives. As part of their ongoing employee volunteering program, the GMHBA team learned more about Cottage by the Sea, its history and purpose,

and accompanied Cottage by the Sea staff and participating children between the ages of five and 12 years on a morning excursion. They returned to the cottage to prepare lunch and complete much-needed maintenance works around the facility in the afternoon. “We know that community groups like Cottage by the Sea are vital in shaping social wellbeing,”

GMHBA chief executive officer Mark Valena said. “The work they do to support kids in need, provide educational, recreational activities in order to build on their self-esteem is important to their future health and wellbeing. This is why we are passionate about being involved.” Cottage by the Sea manager Bill Kerr said that strong emphasis is placed on cooperation, teamwork and respect for self, others and the environment. “Each child who attends one of our camps is accepted as an individual with differing needs, expectations and responses and they are provided with the opportunity to grow, learn and play – away from the stress of their everyday lives. “Our staff work closely with community counsellors, schools and foster agencies to ensure the children enjoy a week filled with activities designed to build self-esteem, confidence and encourage social interaction with fun filled memories to keep forever.” Children from around Australia attend short term care camps at Cottage by the Sea that run from three to five days, empowering and supporting them in developing their mind, body and wellbeing by providing leadership and outreach programs in a positive, healthy, seaside environment. Cottage by the Sea is located at Queenscliff and has a proud history of helping children in need since 1890. The cottage provides over 1,000 children with holidays annually, while giving the adult family members time out. The cottage cares for diverse groups of children with family difficulties, including domestic violence, emotional trauma, foster carer fatigue, sudden death or departure of a parent, social/economic disadvantage, cultural and refugee difficulties.

BY HAMISH BROOKS NATIONAL Reconciliation Week (May 27June 3) began yesterday and a local primary school is marking the occasion with an afternoon of cultural activities later this week. Point Lonsdale Primary School working with the Queenscliff Reconciliation Mob has a series of activities planned for this Saturday in their school hall. Jo Whitehead from Queenscliff Reconciliation Mob said a free cultural afternoon has been arranged and will feature a talk from Uncle David Tournier from the Wathaurong Aboriginal Cooperative and a performance and lessons on how to play by renowned didgeridoo player Norm Stanley. “Last year, they had plastic tubes where the children could make and decorate their own didgeridoos, blanks of boomerangs which they could shape and decorate and then throw them and ochre face painting in traditional designs. “This year will be much the same.” Point Lonsdale Primary School principal Fay Agterhuis said a fun day was in store and encouraged parents to bring their children along to the school hall in Bowen Road Point Lonsdale. “It’s from 2pm-4pm and there will be lots of activities during that time including some dance activities I believe, “I encourage everyone to come along to celebrate reconciliation week and enjoy their time there.”

Vibrant learning opportunities VIBRANT learning happens in many different ways, through experiences and practical applications, by listening and when talking, according to The Geelong College principal Andrew Barr. “Sometimes it happens hours or days after the fact, when the penny drops. Most importantly it happens differently for each individual. “We understand this is important and create programs, experiences and spaces that encourage students to explore and understand the many different ways to learn and to share.” The Enviro program at middle school challenges the year 4 pupils to ask How can we create a good tomorrow? Maths, English and other core subjects are integrated into practical ecology and sustainability. As they empty the fish tank, the pupils work on volume and measurement and as they observe the local plants and animals they write and draw in their visual diaries. Pupils recycle paper, rake, water, mulch, weed and nurture their own garden plots. The year 4 pupils are the environmental leaders at middle school and are responsible for communicating these messages at assemblies and to visitors to the Enviro centre. In year 6, pupils gather, analyse and present their learning through multimedia projects. Groups of pupils decide how they can communicate most effectively and create short films or commercials, radio segments with guests, voice overs and jingles, blogs or web animations in response to a project brief. The classroom hums with discussions about who they are trying to talk to and how they will best be able to tell their story. Each year, the year 6 pupils become the gatekeepers of school cyber safety and use their skills to inform others. Mr Barr believes that sharing knowledge and understanding within the school and local

community is important. “These programs and others such as the year 9 City Week study immersion and the year 10 Fulfilling Lives Community Program create opportunities for

students to extend their understanding and learn leadership and action by sharing their experiences – it is a deeper and richer way to learn” he said. Come and experience learning with us at an

The tide that rules them all BY HAMISH BROOKS BELLARINE and Surf Coast residents may have noticed the ocean lapping at their toes a little further up the beach on their beach walk on the weekend as tide heights increased on their way to today’s king tide. Large tides are predicted for today (with high tide predicted for mid afternoon) and tomorrow and residents are encouraged to take pictures of it as part of Green Cross Australia’s Witness King Tides project. It’s an initiative that is seeking to help Australians understand the impacts of sea level rise in their local area and to raise awareness of the threats posed by climate change. It has previously been run in Queensland, New South Wales and southern Tasmania,

with over 4,000 images collected. Last week, Green Cross Australia chief executive officer Mara Búnsaid said residents of Victoria can witness king tides along the coastline between May 26 and 29. She said you can also see similar effects during the high tide the day before and after and sharing photos allows us to visualise how higher sea levels will impact our beaches, coastal areas and shoreline communities in the future. Great Ocean Road Coast Committee chief executive officer Richard Davies said his organisation was communicating with Green Cross Australia and investigating ways to support their project. “The project presents an ideal opportunity for us to partner with others and work together to raise awareness

around these challenges (the impacts of sea level rise in their local area).” Barwon Coast’s Maddie Glynn encouraged Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads residents to take part in the project. “This is a fun community photography project that helps capture changes over time. “Barwon Coast would be pleased to hear from those citizens taking part in the project and also to see your photos.” Although king tides are naturally occurring and not a result of climate change, the bi-annual occurrence provides an insight into the potential impacts of rising sea levels to the Australian coastline. To get involved go to witnesskingtides. org. Full tide times and dates are available from the website.

Region syncs up for story time BY TIFFANY PILCHER

Surf Coast councillor Margot Smith introduces a delighted audience to Nick Bland’s The Wrong Book at the Torquay Library during National Simultaneous Story Time on Wednesday.

BUDDING Torquay and Ocean Grove bookworms joined the rest of Australia for a special nationwide reading as part of National Simultaneous Story Time at Torquay and Ocean Grove libraries on Wednesday. At 11am libraries, schools, preschools, childcare centres and bookshops across the country hosted readings of children’s book The Wrong Book by Nick Bland. The annual event aims to promote the value of reading and literacy using an Australian children’s book that explores

age appropriate themes and key learning areas of the national curriculum. In Torquay, Surf Coast councillor and Geelong Regional Libraries Corporation deputy chair Margot Smith took the honours of reading to a captivated crowd of children, parents and carers. “I’m an avid reader myself and I think it’s very important to expose children to reading at a young age and set them off on a journey of lifelong learning,” she said. “The event has brought together the children of our community and around Australia to take part in a fun and educational experience which

is an excellent kick-starter for their development. “The library has recently been extended and it’s a wonderful facility for Torquay and the surrounding region so this was a great opportunity to show that to young families from our community.” In Ocean Grove Bellarine Police senior sergeant Angelo Ferrara read to a horde of 40-50 children, who were part of 579 children and 172 adults who participated in the event in the Geelong Region; 430,580 people participated in Simultaneous Story Time nationwide at 2,500 locations.

Political party to oppose live exports BY JAMES TAYLOR THE live export of animals is being touted as an election issue for Corangamite voters, with a political party planning to stand a Victorian candidate in the Senate. The Animal Justice Party (AJP) will run an information session in Torquay on Thursday, and Victorian Senate candidate Bruce Poon will attend a meeting in Torquay on Friday. Two of the electorate’s residents, Dorothy Johnston and April Meddick, are already campaigning against live exports, and held an

awareness stall at the Queenscliff Market on Sunday to highlight the issues surrounding the long-distance transport of live animals. Their previous awareness stalls have gathered almost 850 signatures on a petition to bring an end to live exports. Johnston and Meddick say there are a growing number of Australians voicing their opposition to live exports, and hope to inform Corangamite voters ahead of the federal election. “Not only is this trade of live animals incredibly cruel, it is an export of Australian jobs,” Ms Meddick said.

“This should be of interest to the Corangamite candidates and voters with the Colac abattoir in the electorate. “This trade is not only costing Australians jobs, it is costing local Australians jobs.” Johnston and Meddick say a move away from live export to local processing would create economic benefits for the Corangamite region, including more jobs for the local Colac abattoir. They cited a poll commissioned by the World Society for the Protection of Animals in 2012, which stated 74 per cent of Australians would be more likely to vote for a candidate who promised to

end live exports. According to the AJP website, Australia’s three main political parties have “comprehensively failed animals”. “Labor and the Coalition knowingly promote animal cruelty to farm and native animals and even the Greens have taken 20 years to say anything against the grotesque live trade in farm animals.” The AJP information session will be held at the Spring Creek Community House at 7pm on Thursday, and Mr Poon will meet interested parties at Moby’s Café at 6.30pm on Friday. Head to animaljusticeparty.org for more information.

Grove school embraces multiculturalism BY TIFFANY PILCHER LAST week Ocean Grove Primary School celebrated multiculturalism with a week of activities and a colourful dress up day on Thursday that had pupils and teachers donning berets, sombreros, kimonos, saris and more. The dress up day was held as part of Education Week and pupils at the school have been learning about different cultures, how they have influenced the country we live in today, why people migrate to Australia and the places they are from. Grade three teacher Kerryn Skuza said the pupils loved the chance to dress up in the traditional and contemporary costumes of the places they’ve been learning about. “They had the opportunity to draw on their ancestry and heritage and share with their classmates information they had learnt about their family.

Alternatively, they could find a costume and then research the country of origin, the discussion generated by different costumes was amazing.” Other activities included multicultural food tasting, Italian dance lessons, African drumming lessons and Indonesian lessons. “I think the best thing about living in a multicultural country is making new friends from all over the world and learning about what their countries are like,” grade two pupil Roo said. A basketball game pitting pupils against teachers was a highlight for many. “I liked watching the teachers play basketball against the pupils. I dressed as an Italian girl because some of my family came from Italy,” grade three pupil Ruby said. Parents and families were welcomed into the classrooms throughout the week to join in the celebrations and view their child’s learning.

Ocean Grove Primary School grade 2 pupils (L-R) Makani, Ruby, Issy and Amelie got into the spirit of Education Week with a multicultural dress up day on Thursday.

Bouris gets down to business BY JAMES TAYLOR CELEBRITY Apprentice star Mark Bouris wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t firing anyone when he visited Geelong on Friday. The businessman and founder of Wizard Home Loans was the guest speaker at the Geelong Chamber of Commerceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Luncheon, held at The Pier. The executive chairman of wealth management company Yellow Brick Road spoke about his new book What It Takes, which is described as a fresh look at what was essential to get people where they want in their working life. Mr Bourisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; visit coincided with the opening of a Yellow Brick Road office in Geelong, whose principal Stuart

Baker lives in Torquay. Bouris founded Wizard Home Loans, one of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest non-bank lenders, in 1996. Wizard grew to approximately 300 branches across Australia, New Zealand and India before the company was sold to General Electric in 2004. Yellow Brick Road was started in 2007, and offers products and services for home loans, commercial loans, financial planning, insurance, superannuation, investments, accounting and tax. Earlier this month, the Geelong Chamber of Commerce also held its first After 5 networking drinks event outside Geelong, at the Wyndham Resort Torquay on May 15.

BY TIFFANY PILCHER GEELONG artist Deborah Fisher is in the winner’s circle after taking out the coveted People’s Choice Award at the Borough of Queenscliffe’s 150th Anniversary Art Awards exhibition for her piece titled Jed of the Rainbow Riders. The announcement was made at Seaview Gallery during the closing of the celebratory exhibition on Sunday May 19. Fisher said Jed of the Rainbow Riders is an almost life-sized painting that depicts the diminutive Shetland Jed, who resides at the now defunct Connewarre horse therapy organisation Rainbow Riders. The award was determined by the number of votes received from visitors to the exhibition. Borough of Queenscliffe councillor Susan Salter announced the winner, and acknowledged those who contributed to the successful 150th Anniversary Art Awards and Exhibition.

Shire leads the way BY JAMES TAYLOR SURF Coast Shire has been congratulated for its world-leading measures to address violence against women. In 2010, the council was the first organisation in the world to introduce a family violence clause into its Enterprise Bargaining Agreement (EBA). The Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV) has recognised the shire’s achievement by including it in a new handbook – launched last week – which showcases the efforts of eight councils to eliminate violence from society. Under the EBA, Surf Coast Shire staff are eligible for 20 days special leave each year to deal with family violence. The leave can be used for medical appointments, legal proceedings and other activities relating

to family violence. Carer’s leave is also offered for employees who are supporting a person experiencing family violence. Surf Coast human resources coordinator Wendy Hope said part of the reason for the clause was to enshrine it in law and show staff and community that the council had made a strong stand on the issue, and set the standard for a workplace that would not tolerate violence. “When we developed the policy, we looked at the Family Violence Protection Act and, with the help of Urcot, created a document to define our stance and the commitment to our employees. The council also developed a factsheet that is available in common areas such as the kitchens and staff rooms.” MAV president Bill McArthur said at least 20 Victorian councils have since enacted similar policies.

Help disadvantaged youths BY ALI DEANE INNOCENT individuals around Australia are choosing to be locked up to help disadvantaged young people live more positive and fulfilled lives. It is the fourth annual Whitelion Bail Out, which exposes voluntary inmates to life on the inside, at the same time spreading awareness and raising funds for Whitelion programs. Whitelion Western Region manager Jeff Hamilton is one of many individuals involved. He has nearly raised the mandatory $1,000 bail, and will be locked up at the Old Melbourne Gaol this Friday night. “It means so much. It allows the community to walk in the shoes of a young person caught up in

S RE E R ITU C 2 A URN F F O

the justice system,” Mr Hamilton said. “You get a rap sheet, fingerprinted, and you get firsthand the whole experience of what a young person goes through. “You lose your sense of identity, your sense of liberty, you have to do what you’re told, when you’re told, and it limits your choices.” Voluntary inmates who are part of Bail Out face a judiciary, are sentenced to cell time, meet young people who have been through the system and upon release are escorted to a parole party. Mr Hamilton said he wanted to share the message that those caught up in the justice system are vulnerable young people who lack opportunities. “We can as a community support young

people, provide opportunities and promote their recovery process. “Hopefully this helps get employers excited to employ young people. Employment provides identity and self esteem, and if they get that opportunity it can hopefully break the cycle of the social issues they are having.” Whitelion was founded in Melbourne in 1999 and through mentoring and programs opens doors to opportunities, relationships, community and jobs for young people involved in the youth justice system or at risk of involvement. The annual Whitelion Bail Out helps raise much needed funds to mentor at-risk young people, and this year the goal is $600,000. For more information and to register visit whitelionbailout.org.au.

Hon. Terry Mulder, MP Minister for Public Transport Minister for Roads

Dear Editor, The state budget has announced $300,000 to study the feasibility of reopening the Queenscliff line to Drysdale and determine whether there would be enough patronage to justify regular peak services. I believe that any study should look at where the population and growth is on the Bellarine Peninsula. Certainly the population through Newcomb to Leopold would create demand, but would it as far as Drysdale – so what should a study address? Indeed there is growth in Drysdale and Clifton Springs back towards Curlewis, but the real population growth centre is Ocean Grove with Barwon Heads. The line could be reopened to Curlewis Road then extended down to Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads. This would maximise patronage from locals, holidaymakers, tourists, and beach-goers, taking pressure off overworked local roads and boosting economic activity. Drysdale would still have the benefit of access at Curlewis. A different option for Barwon Heads and Ocean Grove is to swing south then east from the proposed Armstrong Creek station servicing both Torquay and the lower Bellarine. The flat terrain would make this a relatively cheaper option. However, we could be really brave and combine both options creating a circuit via Ocean Grove with a multitude of potential movements for potential patrons, such as better access to Deakin University. The new service could be a separate train from South Geelong where the connection to other services could be made. This would eliminate extra traffic through the tunnel to Geelong.

with state budget”, Bellarine Times May 14). In the article, you mention how frustrated and upset Cr Farrell is about the state government’s refusal to put forward $3 million towards the Shell Road Sports Precinct project. It must be absolutely horrible to be constantly turned down no matter how many arguments have been put forward for such an obvious cause as this, I can only imagine the sheer frustration that she feels. However, I am puzzled by the apparent refusal to take on board Hugh Delhunty’s response by way of the community facility funding programme. I appreciate the amount is only $650,000 per application. It seems to me that there is a vehicle there to be used for funding, but a lack of willingness to use it, I find that quite odd. To me it’s a bit like baking a cake, if it doesn’t work, you change the recipe if you are looking for a different outcome, you don’t just keep doing the same thing. If we are looking for a different outcome here surely something must change, continually asking for the same thing in the same way is clearly not working, perhaps a change of tack is in order. Food for thought perhaps.

Awarded coordinator Coulson sees big picture BY HAMISH BROOKS

Surf Coast and Inland Plains Network coordinator Mandy Coulson.

A RABBIT control program and a Moonah Woodlands conservation project are reasons why a local individual and group have won recognition in this year’s Corangamite Landcare Awards. Surf Coast and Inland Plains Network (SCIPN) coordinator Mandy Coulson won the Corangamite coordinator award for her work with SCIPN and the Victorian Serrated Tussock Working Party. In the information about the award recipients, the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority said her strength was her ability to see the big picture. “She shows a dedication that is unparalleled especially in her ability to bring organisations together to achieve a common goal. In her SCINP role she helped develop a coordinated rabbit control problem bringing together private,

public and community land managers replacing a once ad-hoc approach to rabbit control with a coordinated, streamlined and well supported project.” The Bellarine Catchment Network, Swan Bay Environment Association and the Borough of Queenscliffe won the Coastcare award for their work protecting the Narrows dunes coastal Moonah Woodland. Since 2007, the groups have done on-ground works and facilitated community awareness involvement and research to address the eroding terminal scour in the Narrows dunes. Nine awards were handed out altogether, with Member for Western Victoria Simon Ramsay, representing the Minister for the Environment Ryan Smith, recognising their efforts at an event at Warncoort. “These awards recognise those individuals and groups who have

demonstrated that the Landcare spirit of working together continues to thrive as much today, as it did when it first started 27 years ago.” There were also two Corangamite Landcare Honour Roll Inductees – National Landcare Network’s Roger Hardley and Bellarine Landcare Group’s Geoff McFarlane. MEANWHILE, nominations in the 2013 Victorian Coastal Awards for Excellence are now open. These awards recognise commitment and contribution to Victoria’s coastal environments and you are invited to nominate yourself or another person, group or organisation in any of the categories listed on the Victorian Coastal Council website. Category information and nomination forms are available from vcc.vic.gov.au. Nominations close 5pm Thursday 4 July.

DEPI farming workshop comes to Winchelsea BY DEAN WEBSTER IN LIGHT of the tough seasonal conditions on the land due to the lowest rainfall on record, the Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) will be running a workshop for farmers at Winchelsea on June 5 at the Winchelsea Golf Club. DEPI are encouraging sheep and beef producers to attend the workshop titled Managing a Tight Winter. It will cover pasture growth, supplementary feeding options, animal health and land management issues. Andrew Speirs from Mike Stephens

and Associates will speak on management options to maximise winter growth. Winchelsea farmer and local Victorian Farmers Federation member Stewart Mathison said these workshops will be an opportunity to refresh stock feeding skills. “There is always some new information or innovation out there to assist managing stock if we have a tough winter.” Veterinarian Dr David Rendell and agricultural consultant Dr Jason Trompf will revisit the basics of animal feed requirements and decisions on meeting these requirements with supplements and pasture available. DEPI veterinarians Dr Robert Suter and Dr Natarsha Williams

will cover the key animal health issues to consider over the winter period, including worm management, risks associated with grain feeding and managing lambing ewes and autumn and spring calving herds. DEPI staff will also provide land health information including maintaining ground cover, using sacrifice paddocks and managing farm water supply and a rural financial counsellor will be available to provide financial advice including refinancing options and managing debt. The workshop begins with a free breakfast provided by Rural Industries Skill Training (RIST) at 8am, with presentations commencing at 9am.

Supplementary hay is delivered to stock with limited pasture on which to graze.

Cameras save lives message heard loud and clear THE state government believes its road safety camera campaign is helping Victorians understand the benefits of cameras in improving safety and reducing road trauma. Minister for Police and Emergency Services Kim Wells said an evaluation of the initial stages of the See the Bigger Picture – Cameras Save Lives campaign had shown positive results. “Approximately one in four Victorian drivers has been exposed to the campaign message that cameras save lives,” Mr Wells said. The campaign television advertisements have begun again and will run until June 30. Then See the Bigger Picture: Cameras Save Lives campaign was launched in November last year, after filming in Warrnambool, and featured locals who had experienced the tragedy of road trauma or been closely connected to it. The government invested in the campaign after the Auditor-General’s report Road Safety Camera Program August 2011 raised concern about the public’s misconception that cameras were a revenue

tool, not a road safety initiative. The Auditor-General noted that despite clear evidence to the contrary, there is ongoing public concern that the program is revenue-raising, inaccurate or not soundly grounded in improving road safety outcomes. The Auditor-General highlighted: • Road safety cameras improve road safety and reduce road trauma, and their ongoing use as an enforcement tool remains appropriate • Any program that aims to deter dangerous and risky behaviour through the use of fines will generate revenue, but this is demonstrably not the primary purpose of the road safety camera program • An extensive body of research and evaluations both throughout Australia and overseas have demonstrated that road safety cameras result in improved road safety outcomes including lower speeds and reductions in fatalities and serious injuries from crashes. The Auditor-General recommended: the Department of Justice expedite the implementation of its communication strategy and address misconceptions about the (road safety cameras) program. Mr Wells said the television, radio and online advertisements highlighted the personal impact of road trauma and showed that cameras played a

significant part in making our roads safer. “Speed cameras are a proven deterrent to those people who might otherwise drive in a manner that is dangerous not just to themselves and their families, but also to other road users,” Mr Wells said. Department of Justice figures show that more than 99 per cent of vehicles passing fixed cameras and more than 98 per cent of vehicles passing mobile cameras comply with the speed limit. “A total of 282 people died on Victoria’s roads in 2012. This represents Victoria’s lowest annual road toll since monthly records began in 1952,” Mr Wells said. “While reducing road toll is pleasing, there is more work to do, and one life lost on our roads is always one too many. “The Coalition Government has released a 10year Road Safety Strategy to further reduce deaths and injuries on our roads. “Through this strategy we hope to achieve more than 30 per cent reduction in road deaths and injuries over the next decade through a combination of road safety cameras, education, advances in technology and road infrastructure upgrades working to reduce the road toll. “Fines from road safety cameras totalled just over $259 million in the 2011-12 financial year which is a small amount when compared to the $3 billion that road trauma costs Victoria each year.

“All revenue from speed cameras funds road safety initiatives through the VicRoads Better Roads Trust fund. “The campaign is helping to remind Victorian drivers that road safety cameras are in place to make people slow down, reduce accidents and help reduce the road toll,” Mr Wells said.

Winter warning for Victorian drivers THIS YEAR

LAST YEAR

A regional partnership with TAC and the Victorian Government Maintain vigilance about road safety. (Rural Vic Toll YTD) The above figures represent regional Victoria’s road toll.

THE Transport Accident Commission (TAC) is reminding motorists to drive to conditions in the coming months as autumn leaves are replaced by morning frost. With winter fast approaching, the TAC has sent a safety warning to all Victorians, particularly those in regional areas, to slow down and take extra care on the roads. TAC chief officer Janet Dore said now that an unseasonably warm start to May is over and rain is forecast more frequently, local road surfaces may become slippery. “This means drivers should take extra care and slow down,” Ms Dore said. “Every death and serious injury on our roads is preventable and by taking a few simple

precautions you could potentially save your life.” The 2012 Road Safety Monitor survey found drivers considered weather conditions, as well as speed limit and road conditions, to be the most important factors in influencing the speed they drove. This was particularly the case for regional drivers, who were significantly more likely than metro drivers to report these as having an impact on their driving. The importance of regional motorists taking care behind the wheel has been reinforced by the increased percentage of deaths outside metropolitan Melbourne this year. At the time of release, there had been 90 fatalities on our state’s roads this year, 58 of

which had been in rural Victoria – almost twothirds. Ms Dore said there were a number of steps motorists could take to stay safe during winter. “In wet and windy weather, slowing down and driving or riding to the conditions are key safety tips to remember,” Ms Dore said. Ensuring your tyres are in good condition, braking gently, turning your lights on and reducing your speed if there is fog or mist around were also offered as advice for winter motorists. “Every death and serious injury on our roads is preventable and by taking a few simple precautions you could potentially save your life,” she said.

Helping children grieve with Wombat’s Wish BY JAMES TAYLOR EVERY year, about 100 children in the Geelong region experience the death of a parent, and a charity founded by a Jan Juc resident is working to ease their pain. Jill Crookes was inspired to start Wombat’s Wish – which offers community-based grief support for bereaved children, adolescents and their families – after learning about a similar program in the United Kingdom. The service held its first meeting at Burnside Camp in 2005, and has run camps in May and November plus a family fun day every year since then. Wombat’s Wish is open to children aged between 5 and 16 who had lost a parent or a primary carer, such as a grandparent. It covers the City of Greater Geelong, Surf Coast Shire, Borough of Queenscliffe and part of Golden Plains Shire. Statistics from the United States and United Kingdom show about three per cent of children were parentally bereaved by the age of 16, and Ms Crooks believes the situation is similar in Australia. She said children were referred to the service by school counsellors, chaplains, and organisations such as Mackillop Family Services and Bethany. “Generally, we see the more complex bereavements. “Often these kids have a very complicated background, and are experiencing really traumatic grief. “A child’s grief is disenfranchised grief, it goes unrecognised.”

She said the camps – which have separate counselling sessions for children and parents – were “a mixture of grief therapy and fun”, run by psychiatrists and social workers. “At the start, it can be tough, but by the end it’s like ‘Can I come again? When’s the next camp?’.” Ms Crookes said Wombat’s Wish was heavily reliant on its donors and volunteers, and could not expand any further without more financial support. She said she hoped to one day introduce an interactive website and phone hotline to the service. For more information about Wombat’s Wish, phone Jill Crookes on 0412 186 542, email jill@wombatswish.org.au or head to wombatswish.org.au.

Station goes with the flow for Cliffy BY JAMES TAYLOR

A child tackles the high ropes course at the Wombat’s Wish camp earlier this month.

A NEW radio station for listeners along the Great Ocean Road has timed its launch to be part of a tribute to ultramarathon runner Cliff Young. Last week, Flow FM switched on its transmitter in Young’s home town of Beech Forest, a day before a film about the elderly athlete premiered at the Colac Cinemas. The latest addition to Flow FM’s Victorian regional radio network – which broadcasts on 90.9 FM – means it now reaches Lavers Hill, Apollo Bay, Skenes Creek, Gellibrand, Forrest, Carlisle River and the nearer farming districts of the south west. “We decided to launch the service, based on The Ridge, at the time as the release of the film Cliffy and the Colac screening to honour a local legend who showed that anything is possible, particularly when wearing gumboots,” Flow FM

station manager Wayne Phillips said. “We have overcome many obstacles to get a Great Ocean Road coverage that will give locals living in the Otways excellent commercial FM radio coverage and a unique reception along the Great Ocean Road, particularly from Kennett River through to Peterborough.” Flow FM describes its content as a mix of adult contemporary and popular country music augmented with announcers and a particular focus on local news, Victorian regional information, weather, fire and flood warnings, rural living, rural content for agriculture, forestry and fishing sectors, local events and local football reports. Community groups and listeners are invited to interact with the station by emailing mail@ flowfm.com.au, heading to flowfm.com.au, phoning the studio on 5497 2214 or searching “Flow FM Australia” on Facebook.

healthy living ADVERTORIAL

Tapping into weight loss naturally EMOTIONAL Freedom Technique (EFT) or Tapping as it is better known, is becoming one of the leading energy therapies used in Australia. It is being used for a variety of different issues and is becoming increasingly popular with weight loss and the cessation of unhealthy behaviour choices such as smoking and other addictions. EFT is about returning the mind, body and emotions to a state of balance and harmony so that you are not limited by negative thoughts and feelings. Geelong and Surf Coast EFT practitioner and hypnotherapist Michele Sayers said that â&#x20AC;&#x153;even though we are â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;designedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to recover from unpleasant past experiences and trauma, we are often still affected by these recurring emotions and negative thought patternsâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We can also be affected by ongoing or future events such as work-related stress, interpersonal problems, depression and various kinds of anxieties.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;These emotions can become â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;stuckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and as much as we try to ignore them, they still affect our lives. â&#x20AC;&#x153;More often than not, we are not even aware of these negative patterns as well as the way in which we choose to numb them.â&#x20AC;? Michele believes that using this process for weight loss can have far reaching and often permanent results. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unfortunately diets are like a bandaid for the problem â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they will work for a while and weight can be lost. â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, if the underlying issue of why the overeating is happening in the first place is not addressed, the person will often return to their old way of being.â&#x20AC;? Micheleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal is to inspire clients to make healthier eating habits a reality and motivate and assist them in the process while allowing clients to breakthrough life-long limitations. Clients often not only achieve freedom from food obsession, but reduced cravings and addictive eating habits, increased energy and vitality

and a better body image. Where there once was hopelessness, fatigue and struggle, suddenly joy, motivation and ease are possible in their lives. According to Michele, dealing with over-eating issues from an EFT/ tapping perspective allows us to examine our psychological association to food, eating and exercise. Michele believes that once the energy disruption caused by unresolved emotional difficulties are removed we are able to find the missing link to actually change the thinking and heal the feelings permanently. When the emotional issues are addressed at the energetic level, the negative thoughts and obsessive behaviour regarding food disappears. There is no willpower involved because the trigger emotions have been resolved and the urge to overeat simply disappears, usually permanently.

Security upgraded at hospital State government backs telehealth BY JAMES TAYLOR

BARWON Health has received a $25,000 state government grant to improve safety and security for nurses, doctors and other health staff. Last week, Health Minister David Davis announced the healthcare provider, which runs the Geelong Hospital and other centres across the Geelong region, will use the funding to install additional closed circuit TV cameras, a new security safe and to boost its training and practices around

dealing with aggression. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nurses, doctors and other health staff should be able to carry out their work without the potential or threat of violence, and this latest funding will help increase the safety of hospital staff and patients.â&#x20AC;? He said 40 hospitals across Victoria were sharing in $1 million of funding to upgrade and improve their safety and security systems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The state government has invested an initial $5.8 million over four years and is making further investments to

improve security and safety in Victorian hospitals and health services state-wide, including upgrading duress alarms and installing CCTV cameras in emergency departments.â&#x20AC;? Mr Davis said 24 hospitals had their duress alarms upgraded over the past year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Safety and security in hospitals is a matter for individual health services, which have responsibility for determining local responses.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;However, the Coalition government is committed to making funding available to enable hospitals to carry out a range of measures to ensure their staffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safety.â&#x20AC;? Mr Davis also revealed the transfer of patients from an ambulance into the emergency department at the Geelong Hospital had improved. For the three months to the end of March, 91 per cent of patients who arrived at Barwon Health in an ambulance had their transfer completed within the target of 40 minutes, up from 90.5 per cent in the December quarter. Barwon Healthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transfer performance was above the state average of 79 per cent.

BY JAMES TAYLOR TELEHEALTH services in Victoria will receive a $2.5 million boost as the state government pushes their adoption in rural and regional areas over the next 12 months. Earlier this month, Health Minister David Davis said the state government was responding to the first set of recommendations from the Health Innovation and Reform Council (HIRC) focused on telehealth, which delivers health services and information through communication devices such as the internet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pleased to say that we are adopting the recommendations made by HIRC, including providing funding of $2.5 million to help expand telehealth services across Victoria. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Telehealth has been demonstrated to be effective at improving access to a range of services, particularly for people in rural and regional areas.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It can help reduce travel time for patients and health professionals and it supports the delivery of time critical care to patients, often in more remote locations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The funding will deliver a range of projects that will improve coordination and care for patients, and support the delivery of care closer to where people live.â&#x20AC;? Projects to be funded include expanding paediatric telemedicine services, with the support of the Royal Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital and Monash Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital, to ensure specialist paediatric consultations were available statewide, if and when they are needed.

the Victorian Bridal Industry. The 2013 Awards attracted over 6,000 past brides to vote on their favourite and best wedding suppliers based on quality of product, quality of service, value for money and attitude of the staff. A total of 281 suppliers across 39 wedding categories qualified as finalists for the ABIA awards. Wedding, conference and events manager Connie Trathen was ecstatic with the result. “Having previously been nominated in the awards, and achieving finalist status again, we are really happy with the results. We improved on our percentage rankings in the categories, and best in-house wedding advisor was a new category for us this year, and to achieve finalist ranking in the first year we are in the category, as well as to be placed third in best hotel reception, we have come away very happy. “We love our brides and grooms, and at the end of the day, we just want to make their day as special as we can. But this recognition from them is pretty special.” The awards were set up as a system of collecting bridal feedback, and creating a system to ensure high quality of service amongst bridal suppliers. The bridal marketplace has become highly competitive in recent years, especially with the introduction of many services online. All ABIA members must attain a 95 per cent rating to hold their membership. It is estimated that the average bride will use 13 different wedding vendors, selecting from an average field of 104 vendors. With over 120,000 weddings taking place in Australia each year, 30,000 of these weddings are registered with ABIA. ABIA chairman John O’Meara congratulated the Vue Grand on their achievement and that it is businesses like the Vue Grand which complimented and elevated the wedding industry. The Vue Grand was not the only local entries to enjoy success on the night. Ocean Grove florist Beachside Blooms, again won the ABIA award in best floral design for the second year in a row and also won best decorator.

Burn train tick of approval A NEW type of training camp, which teaches fire brigade members how to conduct planned burns safely, has been given the tick of approval by country fire authority members. The Cape Otway burn training camp took place from May 6-10 involving 17 participants and three leaders – wildfire instructor Mike Evans, Barwon South West vegetation management officer Ian Morrison and planned burn coordinator Roger Strickland. The aim of the camp was to teach members about planned burn operations, taking into account factors including different fuel types, terrain and asset exposures. Mr Strickland said he wanted to build the participants’ knowledge, skills and confidence in planned burns. “I was really pleased with the outcome of the camp and the group said they all appreciated the experience gained and found the activities were a

valuable learning opportunity. “I am confident the camp enhanced their knowledge of fire behaviour and how it varies with fuels, weather and topography.” The burns were undertaken at conservation centre property Bimbi Caravan Park and the Cecil Mariner property, giving participants experience with various fuel types, topography and other aspects. “The range of sites enabled us to take advantage of fuel and weather conditions. “It was also great having a number of skilled personnel to mentor the key positions,” Mr Strickland said. Gellibrand firefighter Natalie Said listed many benefits to the camp but said being hands on was the best way to learn. “I’ve learnt so much about fuel loadings and fuel moisture content, seeing the effects of different lighting patterns and how intense the fire behaviour was even with high fuel moistures.” The landslip which closed a one lane section of the Great Ocean Road near Lorne recently.

Rocks roll onto Great Ocean Road A LANDSLIP closed a one lane section of the Great Ocean Road between Lorne and Aireys Inlet for six-and-a-half hours recently. VicRoads regional director William Tieppo said the landslip, which took place near Herschell Road in Big Hill at 3.30pm, was caused by a combination of wet weather and natural erosion of the coastal environment. One lane was closed to traffic with the help Scenes from the Cape Otway burn training camp which took place earlier this month.

of police with no significant delays and both lanes opened to traffic at 10pm. Mr Tieppo said landslips along the Great Ocean Road occurred naturally due to the combination of high rainfall, naturally weak soils and steep slopes. “VicRoads performs regular maintenance and geotechnical inspections of the Great Ocean Road, including regular stability assessments and road damage assessments.”


Tolka spotted in world class lineup BY ALI DEANE IT HAS been touted as the biggest celebration of Celtic music in the southern hemisphere, so it’s no wonder musicians and music-lovers alike are counting the days to this year’s National Celtic Festival in Portarlington. This year’s lineup boasts the best in Celtic music acts from across Australia and around the world, stretching over three massive days and nights this June 7-10. One group not to be missed is Melbourne quartet Tolka, formerly Six at the Crossroads, who are returning to Portarlington to delight audiences with their modern brand of Australian-Irish compositions. Tolka’s performance this time around also marks the launch of their debut album Tunes from the External Hard Drive. “We started our musical journeys by ourselves. “We met at a folk festival, and just gravitated towards one another,” Tolka fiddler and vocalist Hilary Glaisher said. “We’ve all played Portarlington in different lineups, and last year was the first time as the lineup we have, plus we had our two dancers. “Portarlington is a good fun festival, and definitely one we’re looking forward to.” Tolka’s busy summer schedule – before band members had to return to university – saw them play gigs down the coast, and a string of festivals across Tasmania. Following graduation later this year, the band plan to tour in 2014. “I grew up in central Victoria, but the coast is such a beautiful place. I like the fact Portarlington is a winter festival, it’s nice to have it in the middle of the year, the coast is so nice in winter. “Personally it’s a break away from uni and everyone I know who plays will be there, it’s really fun. “Una (McAlinden, National Celtic Festival director) travels overseas a lot, and books amazing international acts and local – it’s really wellbalanced.” Tolka encapsulates a sense of what it means to be playing traditional music in a contemporary context. Award winning guitarist Robert Hillman’s driving rhythms with Cameron Hibbs’ punchy banjo, Glaisher’s raw melodies and Allan Evans’ lyrical flute come together to produce an eclectic traditional sound with a Melburnian twist. The National Celtic Festival is a celebration of Celtic music in all its diverse forms and crossover styles. Over 50 artists will converge at Portarlington next weekend across a dozen heated venues for multiple

sets, bound to get fans singing along, dancing and discovering new Celtic favourites. There will also be a smorgasbord of dance, language, poetry, pipes and drums, Celtic cuisine

and quirky Celtic pursuits and activities in the workshops and markets. Head to nationalcelticfestival.com, Geelong Performing Arts Centre, 50 Little Malop Street,

Geelong, or phone 5225 1200 for more information and tickets. See page 7 for our Celtic Festival ticket giveaway!

JON HELMER

Cabernet back on the list SOMETIMES we all need a special bottle or two to reignite our passion for wine, to kick start the palate and rekindle forgotten flavours and pleasure, for pleasure it is, that’s why we love it. A regular customer of mine recently visited with that look that said he was in dire need of something special, with a jaded palate that needed spoiling! The wine we picked did the trick of course, but more on that later. Now, wine styles and fads come and go, but I’ve noticed a trend lately signalling that the darling red of the 80s – Cabernet Sauvignon – is back garnering real interest again, not unlike that other darling of the same era with new found love again in Chardonnay. Now this might evoke images of leather chesterfields, and gentleman’s wine society gatherings, but Cabernet Sauvignon is one very classy grape variety, one of the world’s most recognised in fact. It’s a small and thick-skinned grape that ripens late yet is extremely hardy and consistent in character, producing rich wines noted for their sometimes firm powerful flavours, grippy tannins and mix of herbal/ cedar/spice characters. In Bordeaux, the famous “home” of the variety where it is intimately connected to the region, there is good reason why this grape is so highly regarded and commands such attention, praise, and high prices. In Australia, the Coonawarra and Margaret River regions are praised for their Cabernets, each quite unique in their own right. But other areas demand attention too - the Yarra Valley here in Victoria and the Clare Valley in South Australia. Both produce excellent examples of the variety. One producer in particular, (whom my friend in need took a particular liking too), is Jeffrey Grosset’s wines from the Clare Valley. Established in 1981, this icon producer is a consistent high performer with regard to his stunning Riesling’s and his Cabernet/ Cabernet Franc blend. Seen as an innovator and industry leader, the foundation for the Grosset approach and aesthetic is soundly based on the “purity of the fruit”. The vineyards are all organic, hand tended and picked with a very simple, minimal and gentle approach to the winemaking. A major factor behind the quality of the fruit that he produces is his belief in the “Gaia Theory” as espoused by James Lovelock. It’s a fascinating viewpoint championing that “the earth is a single organism, reliant on the complexity and diversity of its species to maintain ecological health”. Grosset’s much famed “Gaia” Cabernet blend is named in respect to this. And also, too, as “Gaia” in Greek mythology was a primordial Greek earth goddess and regarded as mother earth and life itself, the Roman equivalent being “Terra”. Grosset sees a symbiosis of this ideology with his own ideas on viticulture. The Gaia vineyard was established in the early 80s, planted at 570 metres – the highest point of the Clare Valley, ensuring cooler temperatures for the vines that produce characteristic concentration in the fruit.

Grosset ‘‘Gaia’’ Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon – Cabernet Franc 2009 ($65) A genuinely classic Australian red wine that always exhibits key features such as elegance and concentration, texture, length, depth of flavour, structure and balance – no matter the vintage. With briary fragrance and lifted blue fruit/floral aromatics,

brooding density and depth (yet not at all overpowering), dark blackcurrant/mulberry fruit, wild herb and cedary spice, a distinct savoury mineral slant and fine grained tannins. Superb. Will continue to improve and evolve given time. The current 2010 vintage release is also available now.

SCEG film flies into a sustainable future BY TIFFANY PILCHER THE second film in the Surf Coast Energy Group’s (SCEG) winter film season, Anima Mundi, will screen on Friday June 7 and give Surf Coast residents a chance to consider the importance of living sustainably as a community. Anima Mundi, which translates to “soul of the world”, shows a range of thinkers and experts discussing permaculture, retrofitting, earthships (sustainable homes made of recycled materials), local food, currency and more. SCEG member Bronwyn Spark said the film raises important points by looking at the use of our earth’s resources through the eyes of an alien from another planet. “Looking at it from a different perspective makes you wonder how crazy this life can be. “It discusses how energy is never lost – even if you pull coal from the ground and use its energy that energy is transferred into the atmosphere and it’s more of a cycle than most people realise.” Ms Spark said the film was produced sustainably and shot in Victoria and she hopes it will inspire people to look even further than their own backyards. “On a local level we need to do something, the film makes that very clear. “Many people have made a start with solar power and hot water and rain water tanks but as a community we can work together on projects to make necessary changes to the way we live.”

SCEG is inviting everyone to come along to Anima Mundi to be inspired, gather ideas, and brainstorm together at 7pm on Friday June 7 at Surf World Theatrette, Surf City Plaza, Beach Road Torquay. Entry is by donation and a supper will be provided.

No chills at this winter KetchUp BY ALI DEANE BARWON Heads is gearing up for a massive night of music that will totally blow away the winter chills this Saturday June 1. It’s the next Local KetchUp at Barwon Heads Hotel, dishing up four huge local acts headlined by Barwon Heads-Apollo Bay rockers Nutsack, Bells surf rock trio Surfusion, Shed Zeppelin and RAM. If Nutsack has slipped under your radar before now, get ready for some tongue-in-cheek lyrics, in-your-face attitude and a sound that will take you back to the Melbourne punk-rock scene of the early 90s. Nutsack’s all original material challenges society, and shines a light on the changes swooping across the coast, which even forced some members to retreat south. They’ve been described as a sister band to Australian pub rock legends the Cosmic Psychos and Painters and Dockers. With four albums and a cult following, Nutsack is a stalwart of the local music scene, and with common interests that draw them together, you can expect much more finery from these lads.

“We either make people laugh, or piss people off,” frontman Joel “Action” Hibbert said. “Common interests brought us together; myself and our other two guitarists were big skateboarders, we’re into surfing, and I’m a bow hunter. “Our interests have changed, we’re all different, but what brings us together is music. “Live music keeps people happy, and puts smiles Barwon Heads-Apollo Bay rockers Nutsack are headlining Local KetchUp at Barwon Heads Hotel this Saturday night. on people’s faces. “A lot of the songs we played seven years ago are After a three year rest, local artist Red even more valid today.

AH, THAT most welcome sound at last – rain. At times it’s been pelting down – and don't you love it? With the earth still warm mushrooms have burst forth in a late blush in the fields! Careful now, only harvest and cook the mushrooms you are absolutely positive of as there are so many fungi. And unless you truly know the varieties you should take the safe path of buying your mushrooms. It's been fun though in the last few weekends, taking walks and spotting the various very colourful and probably very hallucinogenic fungi. In the shops there are many varieties: buttons that come in three stages - buttons, caps and flats; Swiss Browns; oyster; enokitake; shitake; field; and black (dried) fungus found in the Asian grocery stores. The supermarket stocks shrink wrapped cheap-as-chips dried shitake mushrooms – these are a very handy stand-by to keep in your pantry. Ditto the dried porcini mushrooms – reconstituted in water these dried varieties add depth of flavour to many dishes – but in particular to risotto and stir fries. The true magic of mushrooms is that they are perfectly comfortable with such a wide range of cuisines and in so many

guises. Added to this they can proudly boast attributes of being higher in protein than most vegetables. They are nutritious parcels which contain significant amounts of B-group vitamins, niacin, and riboflavin. Mushrooms can be paired with fish, chicken, beef, veal, and they make excellent soups and dips, stir fries, and risottos. Sliced raw into salads they add colour and contrast. Breakfast, lunch or dinner can feature mushrooms! No wonder we describe them as magic! As a side dish it's difficult to go past thick slices of field mushrooms which are pan fried in olive oil or butter, with slithers of garlic, and a generous handful of roughly chopped Italian parsley. Add a splash of soy and you've crossed over from Italian to Asian in a flash! This quickly prepared dish of loveliness can be served with rice, or cross over back to Italy, and toss it through some silky fettuccine and dinner is served! Virtually do the same quick sauté thing – but with a mixture of mushies (field, Swiss and button) and fold these into a layered blanket of sheets of filo pastry, roll the whole lot and bake in a hot oven – hey presto, a delicious strudel for lunch, or

THE MAGIC OF MUSHROOMS

entree for dinner. Another favourite of mine is to coat tiny button mushrooms with an egg wash, breadcrumbs, deep fry in olive oil and serve with pre-dinner drinks with a decadent tartare sauce. On an anti-pasta platter, tiny button mushrooms can have the stalks removed, and the cavity filled with pesto, or seasoned ricotta cheese. Think chives here. You probably already know that mushrooms love garlic, bacon, cream, parsley, pepper, chilli - but please don't go anywhere near a mushroom thinking you will either wash, peel or store it in plastic. Apart from being either in total darkness whilst growing, or out in the cow paddock, mushrooms like to be kept in a paper bag. They have a very high water content – so be reserved when cooking in regard to adding any stock or liquid of any kind. Mushrooms and truffles – those ultradecadent, ultra expensive fungi – have one thing in common. An earthiness and talent for transforming any dish from the ordinary to heavenly. The joy of cooking with mushrooms is endless variety and inexpensive meals in a flash!

Mushroom Strudel

As demonstrated by Antonio Carluccio many years ago INGREDIENTS 250 gms each button, Swiss and field mushrooms roughly chopped 1-2 cloves garlic finely chopped 1/4 bunch continental parsley Sprinkle of chilli flakes (or fresh chilli to taste finely chopped) 4-6 sheets filo pastry 3-4 tablspns EVOO METHOD Preheat oven to 350C. Sauté mushrooms briefly in olive oil. Toss in garlic, parsley, add chilli flakes, some freshly ground pepper and a little salt. The mushrooms should be barely cooked – still holding their shape. Take sheets of filo pastry, brush each one with olive oil and layer them on top of each other. Spoon the cooked mushrooms along the length of the pastry and roll up as if a Swiss roll. Brush the top with oil, and another twist of the pepper mill. Bake until the pastry is just crisp and golden - about six minutes in a fan forced oven. Serve immediately – you will discover heaven on earth in the rich yet light flavours in this simple

SURF film Drift takes you back to the seventies – where the surf is big, the guys are in flannelette and the surf industry hasn’t even taken off. Jimmy played by Xavier Samuel and Andy Kelly (Myles Pollard) are brothers growing up in a remote coastal town in Western Australian, where they live to surf, and dream of surfing to live. Out of necessity they launch a backyard surf business; rethinking board design, crafting homemade wetsuits and selling their new surf gear out of a van. Ideas and new connections soon turn into more, in a dynamic storyline, based on real-life events, which turns an eye to the Australian surf industry’s humble beginnings and coastal life at the time. It’s not easy, but life seems good. Drift, directed by Morgan O’Neill and Ben Nott, and also featuring Sam Worthington and

Lesley-Ann Brandt is an epic journey that not only takes audiences on a trip up the coast and into the water, but draws you into the friendships, family bonds and conflicts. It has everything. Huge waves, deadly addictions, small town conservatism, bikie gangs, passion, corruption, courage and the will to survive. It even features a cameo appearance by big wave charger Ross Clarke-Jones. Real life surf buddies Worthington and Pollard actually put themselves into the sizable West Australian surf, it was shot by professional surf photographers, and a super tight filming schedule of just 32 days. Drift is a surf flick you’ll want to watch again, and is sure to make an impact on anyone who surfs, loves the coast, or has links with the industry. The 113 minute surf drama is rated M and is now showing at Reading Cinemas, Waurn Ponds. If only Drift had a longer season.

LOCAL knitting and needlework experts are getting their needles in a spin in the warm up to the launch of the Torquay Beanie Festival on June 1. This year’s festival is titled Celebration of Yarn to encompass all forms of knitting and people can catch glimpses of rugs and scarves and anything created with yarn all over town throughout June. Co-organiser Jan Hale said a highlight will be the peaceful guerrilla practice of yarn bombing, in which public items and objects will be covered with knitting and crochet bringing colour to our streets during the first month of winter. “Throughout the festival, people should be on the lookout for a discreet amount of yarn bombing which will brighten up our streetscape as winter closes in,” she said. “Everyone is invited to create approximately metre lengths of knitting or crochet – all colours are welcome – about 30 centimetres wide, in any kind of yarn and the pieces will become part of a community project, to be revealed in June. “You can drop your creation in to the Surf Coast Shire offices.” Now in its sixth year, the month-long festival will again be donating many knitted items to charity and a large number of beanies will be given to Geelongbased asylum seekers this year. The festival’s founding group, Beaut Beanies, have knitted and donated more than 2,000 beanies since 2008, including more than 450 beanies for premature babies at the Mercy Hospital for Women

and Monash Medical Centre. They have also made scarves and beanies for Australian troops serving in Afghanistan and more than 50 trauma teddies for local distribution by Red Cross. The Beanie Festival will run from June 1 to 30 with various displays across Torquay throughout that period.

With Uranus in your home zone, it’s time to move house; shake up your domestic routine; clear the clutter; or extend your living space. You need plenty of room to move at the moment. Saturn boosts productivity on Friday, and helps you socialise and circulate with an influential new crowd. If you want to get ahead at work, you’ll have to do some serious networking!

Mighty Mars (your ruling planet) moves through Gemini from May 31 through until July 13. It also joins the sun, Jupiter and Venus in your communication zone so the next six weeks is the ideal time to converse and socialise; mix and mingle; text and tweet up a storm. The more you get involved in local community projects, the more contacts and friendships you’ll make.

Life’s confusing for many Crabs at the moment but don’t complicate matters by becoming dependent on the counsel of others. Asking for advice is fine, but it’s up to you to make the final decision. Flashes of intuition will lead you in the right direction. With Mercury moving into your sign on Friday, it’s time to express your feelings and say exactly what’s on your mind.

You love your creature comforts and Libran luxuries but avoid getting stuck in a complacent rut. With the sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars and Jupiter all activating your adventure zone, it’s time to travel overseas; take an interstate trip; or rough it in the great outdoors closer to home. If you stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone, you’ll feel more energised and alive!

Business-minded Bulls - a creative approach clears away the cobwebs, especially when it comes to money matters. With Mars moving through your $$$ zone (from May 31 - July 13) the more proactive you are about increasing your cash flow, the more your financial situation will improve. But avoid being too black and white about a complicated relationship issue.

Cats are you confused about your direction in life? Four planets are powering through your hopes and wishes zone, so you need to be passionately proactive about your goals for the future. Don’t just dream about it, get out there and do it! Friendships are also favoured, as you nurture your contacts and network in style. But be extra patient with a fractious family member.

Don your detective cap Scorpio! With Mars moving into your intrigue zone (from May 31 through until July 13) you’re set to uncover a surprising secret over the next few weeks. Sexual shenanigans may also be revealed involving yourself or someone close to you. And, with Mercury shifting into your study zone, you’re in the mood to read, write and research.

Many Aquarians will feel like rocking the relationship boat and causing controversy. Be careful who you stir up though, as they may have a few surprise moves of their own! Make the most of your unique talents on Wednesday and Thursday, when the moon moves through your sign. Look to avant-garde Aquarian role models (like Bob Marley and Yoko Ono) for inspiration.

With four planets in your sign, you’re feeling flirtatious. As birthday great Kylie Minogue (who has her sun, moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars in Gemini) says “I’m just a natural flirt”. Mars dashes into your sign on Friday (until July 13) so it’s time to approach life with extra energy and enthusiasm. Confidence is the rocket fuel that will take you where you want to go!

Virgos are versatile and multi-talented, but you’re not good at blowing your own trumpet. This week, with the sun, Venus, Mars and Jupiter all revving up your reputation zone, you’re in the public spotlight, so make sure you’re putting on a spectacular show. As birthday great Marilyn Monroe said “Everyone is a star and deserves the right to twinkle”.

When it comes to close personal relationships, slow down Sagittarius. If you jump to half-baked conclusions about a loved one, you could end up with scrambled egg on your face! Attached Archers - take the time to really listen to what your partner is trying to tell you. Singles – love and travel are linked so start planning your itinerary (and saving) ASAP.

You’ve got the power! With Mercury moving into your charm zone, use your Piscean powers of persuasion to help get others onside. And keep the lines of communication open, especially with children, teenagers and friends. Friday, Saturday and Sunday are fabulous for all sorts of artistic pursuits, as you express yourself as creatively and colorfully as possible.

BOOK REVIEW WITH GREAT ESCAPE BOOKS

Burial Rites

Me and Rory Macbeath

IN HANNAH Kent’s debut novel, we find ourselves transported to the harsh windswept country of Iceland in the 1820s. Here we are immersed in a delicate retelling of the last Icelandic execution of Agnus Magnusdottir, who was found guilty of the brutal murder of two men in 1828. We first meet Agnus as a prisoner but due to the high cost of keeping her she is sent to a rural farmhouse and community, where she spent time as a young girl. Condemned to work in servitude, under hostile circumstances, until her imminent execution. As is the tradition, Agnus elects a young clergymen, Toti, to help her find peace on the journey to her untimely death. Agnus’ story unfolds through fragmented memories, cloistered conversations with the young impressionable Toti and eventually Margaret, the lady of the house. As her story reaches its crescendo, all hearts seem to soften towards this cold-blooded murderess and all become seduced by her plight. Kent summons great authenticity with her use of the Icelandic language, the intimate detail of the landscape and extremely wellresearched details of past events, the reader can perhaps feel a slight influence of her mentor Geraldine Brooks. While never a happy story as the ending is foretold, the pages turn smoothly and quickly with Kent’s mature and polished writing. A must-read book!

I HAVE just discovered what I think will be one of the great Australian novels of the year. Young Jake Taylor and his best friend Robbie are pretty big personalities in their own right, but the summer that knockabout Scottish newcomer Rory Macbeath moves into their street alters their lives forever. Set in a leafy, suburban street in Adelaide in the 1970s over a long hot summer, all the characters are huge. Jake’s mother is a charming but utterly ruthless chain-smoking barrister, who loves her son and her neighbours with a determined passion. While Robbie’s father, Mr Duncan, is a detective, high up in the crime squad. We meet other neighbours, up and down the street, as the boys whittle away the summer playing cricket, swimming in the local pool until their skin is burnt to a crisp and smashing the odd window with homemade slingshots. While this novel stands firmly on its own feet, it’s hard not to compare it To Kill A Mocking Bird. Richard Beasley is a barrister by background and he builds the tension superbly as you sense a darkness building around Rory’s father, a rage-fuelled man with an uncertain past... and then Rory himself disappears. A brilliant, utterly compulsive read.

Tough conditions and tight battles at Victorian SUP titles BY ALI DEANE WEST Coast stand up paddle (SUP) boarders took the fight to Cape Woolamai last weekend to do battle with the best in the state for the Victorian SUP Performance Surfing titles. Solid and shifting 3-4 foot waves and strong onshore winds added to the challenge, but nothing could faze our local paddlers, as they aimed to secure a spot on the state team to contest the nationals later this year. Father-son team of Matt and John Takle continued their dominance of Victorian SUP scene, claiming back to back titles in their respective divisions. Jan Juc’s Matt Takle displayed power, control and poise, ultimately defeating former Victorian SUP champion Matt Lumley, also from Jan Juc, and walked away with the Men’s Open Title for the second consecutive year. Lumley pushed Takle right to the end of the 20 minute final, his two wave total of 13.04 (out of a possible 20) falling short of Takle’s 14.24. “Obviously winning is a great feeling; however, the highlight of the day for me was the standard of performance across the open competitors. “The conditions may not have been perfect for SUPs, but there were some great fun waves to be had. That’s the beauty of competitive surfing, turning up on the day and performing your best regardless of the conditions.” Placing third behind Takle and Lumley was Jan

Juc’s Harry Lee (12.00), Chris Clarke (6.87, Point Leo) finished in fourth position. Not to be outdone by his son Matt, John Takle fought hard to claim back-to-back Over 50 Men’s Victorian titles. Graeme Briggs pushed Takle throughout the final, placing in second position. Rounding out the final was Michael Smith and Ross McClure, who finished in third and fourth place respectively. Continuing the run of close battles, Ocean Grove’s Kristi Page emerged victorious in the Open Women’s Final, also logging her second Victorian state title in as many years. Page said despite the tough conditions, it had been a really good test of who could surf anything. “I’d never been to Woolamai before, but it was pretty epic, and interesting.” Mirroring last year’s result, Sandringham’s Lucy Bell managed to hold off Emma Webb from Jan Juc, to take out second position. The Over 40 Men’s Final was another close battle with Rye’s Leon Blachos victorious in a final where just 0.41 separated first and third place getters. Michael Smith from Benalla landed second, 0.07 ahead of third place getter Graeme Briggs from Point Lonsdale. Marathon Race star Cameron Hosking finished in fourth place. More images and results can be found at Surfing Victoria surfingvic.com and social media sites.

CAN we work together? A lot of recreational fishers are aware of the two rallies planned by fishers on June 2 to be held within our region. One such rally is being organised by the Friends of Corio Bay Action Group (FOCBAG) who are holding their rally on the Geelong waterfront on Sunday June 2. They had arranged for it to be 10am that morning. This rally has been publicised and planned for a number of months now. Their rally is to highlight the issues they perceive exist with commercial netting in Corio Bay and the perceived increase in that commercial netting that they believe is taking place. FOCBAG believe the fishing is sustainable on a long term basis but that commercial netting is currently impacting the bay in such a manner to have a disproportionate affect on the bay to what it has had previously. On the other hand, we have the Keep Australia Fishing Rally which is also planned for June 2 at 9.30am in Torquay with Rex Hunt fronting the show. Both groups have important messages that they feel they need to get out. Unfortunately, without prior knowledge, both planned their rally for the same day. We have been aware of this for a number of weeks and local fishing identities have been trying to encourage both parties to sit down with each other and work out a compromise, so as to avoid a clash that could affect both rallies. Discussions have been held with both groups to try and work out an alternative. All involved are displaying good faith for the moment so hopefully it won’t be too big a hurdle to overcome, as long as the parties involved are prepared to compromise. The important thing for both to remember is they are both doing their best to represent recreational fishing, one on a local issue and the other on a federal issue. For recreational fishing to be strong, we need to be fully supportive of each other as best we can if we believe in these issues confronting us. For too long recreational fishers have often been

I am led to believe both parties are now considering a compromise to change their commencement times. FOCBAG are now looking to commence their rally at the amended time of 10.30am and have committed to do just that. So the new staring time will now be 10.30am. This will allow more time for those who want to attend both events to be able to do so. The Keep Australia Fishing rally featuring Rex Hunt has not been able to commit to a half hour earlier start.

Ocean Grove rev up for states BY ALI DEANE

DEFENDING champs Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club intend on taking a serious challenge to Lorne this weekend for the Victorian IRB (inflatable rescue boat) Championships. Despite the cancellation of the fourth and final round of the series at Bancoora SLSC on Sunday due to a strong drift in the competition zone, Ocean Grove is positioned well, having made finals consistently this season. At round two on their home beach earlier this month, Ocean Grove was third overall, behind Williamstown and South Melbourne, and in round three, won two of four finals that were held. They’re taking six teams to the states, and Sam Cain, Ocean Grove IRB team manager said their confidence would be boosted further with nightly

training this week. “We’re getting really positive results, and the girls are starting to really step up. “Last year was definitely our breakthrough year. We had a large break in our involvement concentrating more on patrols and summer competition. But we’ve been part of the competition for the last four to five years, and we’ve been building up.” With Williamstown’s reputation in IRB Cain said winning the state point score last year was a huge deal. “We will definitely have our eye on them. They have been consistent over the past 10-15 years and at the pinnacle of the sport in Australia. “To race clubs like Williamstown before the nationals is really key in the lead up, to see the best level. Last year to win against some quality teams in the state and country was a really big deal.”

THE Bellarine Football League’s interleague team has been unsuccessful in its attempt to rack up back-to-back wins, losing to the Murray Football League by 64 points. Murray charged out of the blocks in the game at the Tocumwal Football Ground, kicking five goals to one to take a 23-point lead into quarter time. It was a more even second quarter but Bellarine would come to regret its missed chances, kicking three goals and seven behinds to Murray’s three goals and three behinds. Murray led by 27 points at the final change but opened the floodgates in the last quarter, kicking nine goals to three to win 138 points to 74.

Geelong Amateurs veteran Tim Clark kicked six goals for the Bellarine side, supported by Queenscliff’s Edward Grout with two and Modewarre’s Dane McFarlane and Drysdale’s Ben Carmichael with one each. Best players on the day included Geelong Amateur’s Baden Dodd, co-coach Tom Limb from Queenscliff, Newcomb’s Luke Edmondson and Jed Holland from Barwon Heads. The Bellarine netball side was also unsuccessful, losing to Murray by three goals. Bellarine led 11 goals to six at quarter time before Murray staged a comeback, leading 18-17 at half-time and 28-27 at three-quarter time. Scores remained tight in the last quarter but Murray were the eventual winners, 40-37.

ANGLESEA GOLF CLUB IT IS back to cold weather and time to have the wet weather gear ready. We didn’t need it too much this week, but that isn’t going to continue. Monday was the worst of the week and we had a few playing at Lonsdale and others at East Geelong. The Lonsdale players were called in early and the result decided on 6 holes. At East Geelong they managed to finish their full 18 in the Norma Wallace Perpetual Salver and early starters Judy Talbot and Ann Stokes walked away with the best gross result scoring 93. Ann also managed a NTP. Back to Pennant on Friday and balmy conditions. In Division 2, the second team hosted while the firsts played. Unfortunately the firsts weren’t able to capitalise on the home course advantage losing 4/1 to flag contenders Lonsdale 2. In Division 4, Anglesea defeated Colac 2 at 13th Beach and has taken over top position on their ladder, and our Division 6 team also won at Barwon Valley against East Geelong 3/2 and a strong finish to the season might get them the flag.

WITH MARGOT SMITH

Brent McDonald. NTP winners were Paul Brown, Geoff Lewtas, Paul Johnstone and Graeme Rees. Thursday was the final of the 4BBB knock out and winners this year were Janice Calvert and Jill Emerson defeating Stefi Bates and Wendy Callahan on the 19th hole after sunk a birdie putt from off the green. In the regular competition for the day winners were Dee Stewart in Division 1 with 33 points, Maralyn Cross in Division 3 with 29 points and in Division 2 Jan Buchholz with the day’s best score of 36 points. NTP winners were Jan Stewart, Sue Bowler and Jenny Inman.

The men played a 2 person aggregate stableford event on Wednesday and it was a day to get the handicap combination right. Winners were regular early birds Cyril Leith and Peter Hester with 73 points. Behind them were Peter Gannon and Ross McKenzie with 72 points, then John Balderstone and Keith Turner taking third with 71 points on a countback from low markers John Mooney and

Saturday was stroke and the qualifying round for the mens Chas Gibbs trophy. Winnersfor the men were Phil Warne in A Grade with nett 70, David Adamson in B Grade with 72, and Gerard Waller in C Grade with 69. In the ladies, Valda Connelly won with nett 74.

PORTARLINGTON GOLF CLUB THE weather has quite a chill on in the early mornings, the sun is late to get up and much of the warmth has gone from our day. Winter golf has arrived. There is little new growth on the fairways and there is dampness underfoot. For us golfers/hackers this gives us a need to change our approach to some of our golf. Those cheeky little chip/run up shots onto the green might have to become a short pitch. Changed conditions suggest a changed attack, but herein lies the problem. The greens are in beautiful condition. They have been cut and rolled and invite/demand good play but it is the pitched shots to the green that leave the pitch marks in the green. Would golfers please repair their pitch marks and fairway divots. If one of your group is not fulfilling this responsibility then it is up to you as a club member to remind them of this requirement! Friday, Portarlington played host to the ladies pennant teams. The course had been beautifully prepared and players expressed their appreciation of the condition of the course.

Dalli, Moyle land winning hits BY ALI DEANE

TORQUAY took a healthy home town crowd to Centenary Hall, Corio recently to witness a gathering of the best amateur boxers in the state, in the first Victorian Amateur Boxing League (VABL) bout of the year. Featherweights Jayden Moyle and Jay Dalli did coach Ashley Lynch at Torquay Coastal Boxing proud, emerging victorious in just their first and second fights. Dalli, current state featherweight champion, defeated Bendigoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jason Chislett in three two-minute rounds, winning unanimously. Dalli said although he had been confident heading into the fight, he had planned to take it easy, but when he got in the ring, he went all out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d done heaps of work, training five times a week but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to have confidence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the start, when you first win, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really believe it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it feels pretty good.â&#x20AC;? Dalli was amongst six fighters from Torquay Coastal Boxing who did battle on the night, and said it felt really comfortable as everyone had each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s back. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was also really good to have that support of the

crowd, there were heaps of people from Torquay, and that makes you want to win even more.â&#x20AC;? Within days Dalli heard word of the next competition, so was straight back into full training mode. Moyle defeated Ringwood boxer Riley Bath who trains under the famous Tony â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mad Dogâ&#x20AC;? Miller, a controversial decision ended Nathan Smerdonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign against Damien Junon of Geelong. Luck was also not on side for Jackson Hickman who lost to Sam Rogers in a close matchup, Ben Musset fought well but went down to a more experienced Brad Azzopardi, and although Joe Tilson was shining, did not get to fight as his opponent withdrew. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They all went in confident, and went in together to get weighed in. It was a great feeling. Moyle was thrilled, he beat Bath easily, and they were definitely excited and proud,â&#x20AC;? coach Lynch said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this level, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all experience leading up to titles and professional boxing down the track. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are more fights, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to worry about the next boxer.â&#x20AC;? Torquay Coastal Boxingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jayden Moyle, Jay Dalli, Nathan Smerdon and James Curry head to Lilydale on Saturday for the second VABL competition of 2013.

A SOLID two metre swell was the perfect setting for a special gathering of surfers on Sunday for the opening ceremony of the Australian Indigenous Surfing Titles at Bells Beach. The event, which officially commenced yesterday, will see a quality field of the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top Indigenous surfers fight it out throughout the week at Bells Beach, for the Open Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crowns. Action will see local surfers Anthony Hume, Cormach Evans and Steve Parker go up against defending champion Russell Molony from the Central Coast, Dale Richards, ASP Australasian Pro Junior Series surfer Soli Bailey and 1988 Pipeline Master Robbie Page from Wollongong. Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebrations saw a traditional ceremony and dance and acknowledgement of the donation of Kelly Slater's 2010 Rip Curl Pro Bell trophy to the local Wathaurong Indigenous community. 2012 Australian Indigenous Champion Russell Molony said it was great to be back at Bells.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The competition side is great but thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot more to this event, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about catching up with old friends and really enjoying the week,â&#x20AC;? Molony said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event was amazing and if we get similar waves then it will simply add to what will be a great week for all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s field has grown in strength and numbers which is fantastic.â&#x20AC;? Monday saw three foot waves rolling into Bells for the opening rounds, with today and Wednesday forecast to also dish up quality surf. If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it to Bells Beach to check out the action, head online indigenous. prosurfinglive.com for live event scores and images.
