Diversification key to success, with scallops next spat off the rank

SCALLOP BAY BY DEAN WEBSTER

LIKE many farming enterprises, diversification, along with research and development, is the key to growing a successful business. It is no different for the local shellfish industry, which is now leading the way in this field. Victorian Shellfish Hatchery (VSH), a collaboration between the three main mussel growers in Victoria, is presently hatching scallops with the intention of growing them out at sea at various

aquaculture sites around Port Phillip Bay, from Mount Martha to Portarlington. VSH director Peter Lillie said that there is also the possibility that VSH could provide scallop spat to a proposed commercial dive fishery in Port Phillip Bay. “After the scallop spat run, we will do a spawning of native flat oysters continuing on from last year’s successful run,” he said. Recently, the Minister for Agriculture and Food Security Peter Walsh announced that the collaboration

between the state government and VSH would continue for another three years, stating that the continued collaboration shows how government and industry can work together to apply research in a commercial setting and help to build a profitable Victorian seafood industry. Minister Walsh has reiterated his and Fisheries Victoria’s ongoing commitment to the project. Mr Lillie said the collaboration was paying off, and through the shared use of the Department of Environment and

Primary Industry’s Queenscliff shellfish research hatchery, VSH are continuing research and development (R&D) leading to new initiatives like growing Sydney rock oyster spat to supply New South Wales growers. “So with the help of the Department of Environment and Primary Industry, VSH is continuing down the R&D path,” he said. “With diversification and the continuance of successful mussel spat production, the intention is that it will become a commercially viable venture

in its own right.” City of Greater Geelong Coryule ward councillor Lindsay Ellis said the VSH has been doing groundbreaking research and trials that will continue to restore Geelong’s reputation as Victoria’s leading shellfish growing precinct. “The project shows what can be done through collaboration, and the waters off Portarlington are the ideal place for growing shellfish. “This project adds to Geelong’s reputation as a centre of excellence for fine food and wine precinct.”

BARWON COAST UPDATE 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 Thirteenth 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.

Pest plant and animal control With spring on the way, we will start to concentrate on rabbit and fox control. We have movement sensitive cameras that monitor our control areas and have identified some very interesting wildlife. We have identified wallabies, kangaroos, an echidna as well as rats, cats, rabbits and foxes in the feral category. We have an annual ongoing fox program that focuses on the Thirteenth Beach area, especially for the protection for Hooded Plovers and in the breeding season, their chicks. Please keep your animals under control in these areas and observe any warning signs.

Conservation Volunteers Australia (CVA) Over the last few weeks, we have had a number of CVA teams doing weeding and planting tasks. CVA provides a team of volunteers from all over Australia and occasionally overseas to work in a range of environmentally based programs.

Barwon Coast is happy to partner with CVA in these programs and have great results from using the teams.

Coastal dynamics People would have observed recent very high tides in the area. When we get a combination of these high tides and a big swell we can have huge losses (or gains) of sand. Recently we have experienced these combinations and the seawall at Barwon Heads and some of our beach access stairs have suffered some damage. Some of this damage will restore naturally but the seawall will require substantial repairs and we have now received a report from consultants on the extent of work required

Budgets for 2013/14 The committee has approved a range of camping and accommodation unit tariffs for 2013/14 that will generate approximately $4.9 million revenue – an increase of approximately four per cent on last year. The caravan park and camping operations will provide an operating surplus of $2.7 million that will fund our coastal operations ($1.1 million), administration, plant and vehicle operations, education, natural resource protection and so on, plus the funding for capital works. Additional financial resources will be made available for our coastal environment role following a major study of existing flora along the coast that has identified areas of major weed infestation and areas of pristine vegetation.

Fungi We often get to see some of the magnificent fungi that we have in our region. The featured photo by Bev Wood shows a spectacular specimen. Do not eat any fungi unless you are certain that they are an edible variety. More information on the fungi of this region is available online or in the field guide Australian Fungi by Bruce Fuhrer.

Coastal management plan Our 2012-13 to 2014-15 coastal management plan has been approved by the minister for environment and climate change and is now being implemented. Hard copies are available from the Barwon Coast office and are also available on our website. Feel free to contact me to discuss any issues related to coastal management in our region by phoning me on 5254 1371.

Bark Hut tests alcohol ban

BY JAMES TAYLOR

THE Bark Hut Restaurant in Ocean Grove is hoping to lift the alcohol free covenant on its property but its co-owner admits she has no idea if the attempt will be successful. The restaurant has applied to the City of Greater Geelong for a planning permit, which includes a restaurant and cafĂŠ licence as well as a lifting of three restrictive covenants on the Orton Street

site to allow alcohol to be sold from the premises. The covenant was put in place by the Methodist Church in 1887 and prohibits the sale of liquor inside Ocean Grove’s original town boundary, but the council has recently received legal advice that it can remove the ban. The Bark Hut – part of the TiTree Village – was forced to close in April of last year when it could not renew its liquor licence, and co-owner Tiffany

Trickey said many locals and users of the restaurant were devastated when it shut. “We had an overwhelming number of people write to us; about 280 letters of support.� Ms Trickey said she knew of two other Ocean Grove restaurants that were seeking to test the covenant, but was unsure how the Bark Hut’s application would go. “To be honest, I have no idea. “There might be people objecting – you just don’t know.�

Objections to the application closed on Sunday. Ms Trickey said the fact the venue was already established and was still holding functions would work in its favour. “It’s not like we’re opening a pub.� She praised the council for its work in trying to resolve the issue. “They went to a lot of trouble with this, it’s been great. “The only way to do this previously would have been to do it individually

through the Supreme Court.� A City of Greater Geelong spokesperson said the council would arrange meetings between the applicant and any objectors to the planning permit. It is then up to the council to make a decision, which could take the form of a council hearing panel or a delegation. The spokesperson said one objection had been received by the deadline, but objections could be made up to the point that the council made its decision.

Mussel Festival continues to give BY DEAN WEBSTER THANKS to the generosity of the Portarlington Mussel Festival Committee, there’s now a portable display board that all community groups can use. The Mussel Festival committee has given funds to the Portarlington Community Association to buy the board. Mussel Festival committee secretary Lindsay Noss said that each year the Portarlington Community Association organises community transport for the festival and this is their way of saying thanks. Portarlington Community Association president John Turner said he was thrilled to receive the money to purchase the display board.

“Our association and other community groups often want a portable board to put up around town to share and celebrate what we do,� he said. “We really welcome the spirit of giving back to our community that the Mussel Festival has embraced and thank the festival for their sponsorship.� Jude Oakley, a driver for the festival loves the job. “The bus is always full and visitors appreciate having a local driver to answer their questions, it’s great that volunteering means our town has a new asset,� she said. The most recent Portarlington Mussel Festival was hailed as a huge success, with record crowds giving the Portarlington community and mussel

industry a massive boost – the event being the biggest and most successful yet. The festival has grown from humble beginnings to be the single biggest fundraising event for the town with a significant increase in profits from the previous year. All profits are put back into the community via Portarlington community groups and organisations. The display board weighs only nine kilograms, comes in a carry bag and is available for community groups to use at no cost. If your community group wants to book the board, email displayboard@portarlington.asn.au or phone John Turner on 5259 3057.

After months of rehearsals, students showed off their themed acts and songs to parents, friends and teachers. Teachers surprised the crowd with their rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Thriller�, and the school community can look forward to seeing their work on the silver screen in future, in a new documentary by a local filmmaker.

LOCAL police stations on the Bellarine Peninsula are soon open at new standardised and reliable hours, for residents to drop in for services including document signing, advice, lost property and discussion of local issues. Starting on August 11 the new opening hours will see Bellarine Police Station open from 8am to 8pm, seven days a week – extended to 10pm during the summer months. Queenscliff Police Station and Portarlington Police Station will both open from 8am to 4pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and Drysdale Police Station will open from 8am to 4pm on Mondays and Wednesdays. Bellarine Police Station in Ocean Grove will continue to provide a 24-hour emergency response to the Bellarine Peninsula areas. Senior sergeant Angelo Ferrara said police had decided to create designated opening hours following feedback from the Bellarine Peninsula community, allowing residents to easily attend and speak to police face-to-face. “While we already run patrols out of Bellarine as a 24-hour service, we recognise the difficulty the public has had at finding their local station open for inquiries.� “The Bellarine Peninsula stations have previously opened their counter service at irregular times throughout the week so this will provide consistency for residents when they need counter service at their local station. “We would encourage people to drop by their local station during these times and take advantage of the designated opening hours. Sergeant Ferrara said those needing immediate assistance or wishing to report a crime are encouraged to call triple zero immediately. L

Funds keep Grove coastal work going BY JAMES TAYLOR OCEAN Grove Coastcare will keep up its good work on the Bellarine Peninsula with equipment purchased through a federal grant. Last week, Corangamite Federal MP Darren Cheeseman announced the group would receive $3,127 from the Volunteer Grants program. This will be used to buy a four metre by four metre portable shed, sunshade and outdoor furniture, as well as pay for training and to extend the group’s work with schools and promotional work at festivals. Ocean Grove Coastcare has most recently been clearing out an infestation of the weed polygala from a section of coastal dunes near Sunset Strip. President Cate Barham welcomed the grant, which she said would help with the group’s many activities. “We’re doing a lot of promotion of good indigenous plants in gardens, so that you don’t have plants like agapanthus jumping the fence into the dunes. We also run a nippers program, with a couple

of activities that are environmentally focused.� Mr Cheeseman said the federal government was keen to support the group’s work in Ocean Grove. “The coastline is under increasing pressure, with more people moving here on a permanent and semipermanent basis. “Crucially, with climate change and sea levels rising, we need to do everything we can to protect it, because it’s the dunes that protect the coast.� He said grants of between $1,000 and $5,000 were available, and encouraged organisations to apply for the next round. “The grants make it possible for organisations to buy equipment or go towards things like volunteer training, background checks and transport costs of volunteers with a disability who are unable to drive.� Ocean Grove Coastcare has about 150 members on its mailing list, but is always looking for more. For more information, email oceangrovecoastcare@ gmail.com. To find out more about volunteer grants, head to fahcsia.gov.au or phone 1800 183 374.

Frith changes hands in Barwon BY HAMISH BROOKS

New owner of Frith, Victoria Cole, in store in Barwon Heads.

THE iconic Frith store in Barwon Heads changed hands last week and the new owner could not be happier with her purchase. Victoria Cole said her relationship with Barwon Heads began 11 years ago when she bought a house in the seaside hamlet and her love of the local fashion, homewares and interior design store began not long afterwards. “I’ve loved the shop since day one, the quality of the products and suppliers has always been high.�

Ms Cole said the previous owners had left the store in a very strong position and she wished to express her thanks for the work during the recent handover. “Anna and Tessa have left the store in a great position and my attitude is if something isn’t broken, don’t fix it. I’ll just be adding the ‘Victoria’ touch to it as I go along. I would like to thank Anna and Tessa as they’ve been really helpful, great with the handover and I’ve really appreciated the work they’ve done.� Ms Cole said she would continue to stock leading brands at the shop including One Season, Cable,

Special charge declared for Pearse Road BY JAMES TAYLOR PART of Pearse Road in Aireys Inlet will eventually be sealed, following a resolution by the Surf Coast Shire to declare a special charge scheme.Property owners that live along the gravel road will be asked to contribute most of the cost of the $223,220 project over four years. However, the project is not included in the shire’s draft 10-year capital works program and no funding source has been found for the council’s $75,948 share of the cost. After consultation with residents, who submitted a 34-signature petition in February, only 130 metres of the road north of Aireys Street to cover the very steep approach to the intersection will be sealed. The number of residents in the scheme will now drop from 82 to 76, and they will pay an average of $1,984 each. The cost will range between $992 and $11,904, but many of the higher charges will only be paid if or when the property is subdivided. The shire’s report to councillors stated that while the proposed works were below contemporary residential street standards – as they do not separate pedestrians from vehicle traffic – “they do reflect the residents’ (sometimes passionate) desire for retaining the amenity and informality of the area”. At the council’s meeting last week, Cr Margot Smith said petitioners in general should maintain their interest in an issue, as half of the signatories to February’s petition did not provide feedback to the council’s consultation on the sealing in May and June.

Election race is off and running BY JAMES TAYLOR THE race to the federal election has officially begun, with Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announcing on Sunday that the poll would be held on September 7. The two major parties will be especially keen to secure votes in the Surf Coast and in southern Geelong during the 33-day campaign as they try to win Corangamite – Australia’s most marginal seat. Incumbent Labor MP Darren Cheeseman held the seat by just 0.4 per cent in 2010 and Liberal candidate Sarah Henderson will challenge him again this year. Mr Cheeseman said this election would be close and Corangamite voters may ultimately decide who formed government. “Labor has the big policies that will make a difference to our community.” He touted his record of delivering investments, his party’s plan for jobs, the National School

Improvement Plan and the rollout of fibre to the home through the National Broadband Network. Ms Henderson said only the Coalition had the plan to build a strong, prosperous economy and a safe, secure Australia. “Safer roads, improved community infrastructure, school funding with no strings attached and, most importantly, keeping and creating jobs in our region are all key priorities.” Other candidates in the electorate include Lloyd Davies (Greens), Buddy Rojek (Palmer United Party), Jayden Millard (Australian Sex Party), Alan Barron (Australian Christian Party) and Adrian Whitehead (Save the Planet). There is less of a political knife-edge along the Bellarine Peninsula. Labor’s Richard Marles holds the seat of Corio by 14 per cent but Liberal candidate Peter Read will look to eat into that margin.

CORANGAMITE

Declared candidates in Corio include Greg Lacey (Greens), Tony Harrington (Palmer United Party), Sue Bull (Socialist Alliance), Patrick Atherton (Australian Christian Party), and Stephanie Asher (independent). In January, Katter’s Australia Party announced it intended to contest every seat at the federal election but had not declared candidates for either Corangamite or Corio as of yesterday. Meanwhile, the Australian Electoral Commission has revealed 1.4 million Australians were not enrolled to vote. All Australians aged 18 and over who have lived at their address for at least a month have until 8pm on August 12 to enrol. For more information, phone 132 326 or head to aec.gov.au/enrol. A public forum with the Corangamite candidates will be held in Torquay on August 13. For more details, see page 21.

Surf Coast FC makes some noise for NPL bid BY JAMES TAYLOR PLAYERS, officials and supporters of Surf Coast Football Club gathered in force last week to promote the club’s bids for exposure on the national and international stage. Surf Coast FC has about 350 members, and most of them were at the Community and Civic Precinct in Torquay on Thursday for the filming of a promotional video to support the club’s push to join the National Premier League (NPL) and to host a side during the 2015 Asia Cup. Surf Coast Shire has offered in-principle backing for the NPL bid and club president Joe Taylor said the council had been “extraordinarily generous” in its support for Surf Coast FC, already investing close to $1 million in the soccer facilities at the precinct. “It’s the interim regional facility for Greater Geelong, and definitely in the top few facilities in Victoria at the club level.” Mr Taylor said his club was ready to step up to the NPL. “It’s not about winning it all in the first three years; it’s definitely a long-term strategy. “We’re teaching these kids at a young age and developing their football, not trying to win at all costs.” He welcomed the creation of the league, which

will become the national second tier for Australian senior soccer. “From our point of view, it’s a pretty good sporting structure. “It’s a wholesale restructure of soccer across the

country, and won’t happen again for 30-50 years.” Meanwhile, Football Federation Victoria (FFV) has announced the members of the panel that will assess the Victorian applications to join the NPL. The five-member panel will be headed by Football

Small businesses soak up festival spotlight BY JAMES TAYLOR BUSINESSES can boost their capacity in building cultures, social media and human resources at events starting from tonight in the Surf Coast Shire and Bellarine Peninsula. Victoria’s Small Business Festival runs for the entirety of August, and three events will be held at the council offices in Torquay. The first event, on August 9, focuses on human resources skills and helping businesses recruit and

manage part-time or casual employees. The August 12 event is about using social media to grow a business’ influence, connecting with markets and evaluating success. The third event, on August 21 focuses on building a high performance culture in business. All events run between 5.30-7.30pm. To book, head to surfcoast.vic.gov.au/Slideshow/ Support_for_local_small_business. Shire mayor Libby Coker said the events provided the opportunity for local business owners to build

their capacity to address important management issues. “Small business and home-based businesses are an important part of the Surf Coast economy. I encourage any business owner with an interest in these issues to make a booking and come along to these sessions.” For Borough of Queenscliffe businesses, the festival will start with tonight’s business networking dinner at the Queenscliff Hotel, featuring guest speaker Tonia Todman.

There will be a full day of workshops on August 14, where participants will gain a new perspective of their business by seeing it through new eyes – the only ones that matter – the customer. The state government’s Mobile Business Centre will also be at the Visitor Information Centre in Hesse Street on August 14, offering free mentoring throughout the day with an experienced business professional to assist small businesses in going to the next level.

Plan to save the saltmarsh takes flight BY JAMES TAYLOR A STRETCH of saltmarsh in Breamlea has been put to good use as a valuable habitat for endangered birds. Much of Russell Mumme’s 80 hectares on the Thompson Creek is covered in saltmarsh vegetation and not suited to traditional farming. After considering his options, Mr Mumme came across the Saltmarsh Protection project run by the Corangamite Catchment Management Authority (CMA). This provides funding to private or public landholders who have the threatened saltmarsh on their properties and are willing to sign an agreement to maintain and protect their vegetation for the next five years. The project involves 49 sites and 1,132 hectares and aims to protect the critical habitat for the endangered Orange-bellied Parrot. Mr Mumme said he knew there was saltmarsh on his property but was interested to learn more about the different varieties Corangamite CMA staff found. “We tried growing some native trees in a couple of sections of the saltbush but have never been successful. One of the problems was we couldn’t get fresh water down to the area often enough. “We’re pretty enthusiastic but the farm has never really been productive for grazing cattle – less than half is probably pastoral land.” Mr Mumme shares the property with his mother Rene Wolfe, who has planted 2,000 trees and is also passionate about preserving the property’s conservation value. As part of the management plan, they have already fenced 500 metres of saltmarsh next to the main road and put up signs about protecting the area. Mr Mumme’s long-term vision is for a tourism venture, with bungalow style accommodation where visitors can stay and appreciate the area and the saltmarsh vegetation. “The creek meanders in through the saltbush and we’ve been out on the dinghy and seen it, it’s just beautiful – there’s lots of different colours.”

Details of planned burns released BY JAMES TAYLOR PLANS for the next three years of bushfire prevention burns in the Otway Ranges are now on public display. The Fire Operations Plans (FOPs) show where the Department of Primary Industries (DEPI) and Parks Victoria intend to carry out planned burning and other fuel reduction activities on public land. A number of significant burns are proposed in the FOP for the Otway district, including burns in the eastern Otways, along the Great Ocean Road, and around the Forrest township. District manager Andrew Morrow said the DEPI would continue talking to communities and key stakeholders such as the CFA, winegrowers, tourism industry, conservation interest groups, councils, and landholders to develop the draft plans.

Flick the switch THERE are still places available for students in Geelong schools to take part in a national sustainability program that is visiting the city this month. Start the Switch, delivered by the Australian Youth Climate Coalition (AYCC), supports young people to create positive change for the environment and the climate, in their schools and communities. The AYCC is working with the City of Greater Geelong, Future Proofing Geelong, Barwon Water and the Barwon Regional Waste Management Group on the youth sustainability and leadership summit at the Newtown Event Centre. About 100 students will take part in two days of workshops, games and project planning, hear from inspirational keynote speakers and other young people from the region. Volunteers from AYCC will also carry out peerto-peer mentoring in the three months following the summit. AYCC national schools coordinator Kelly MacKenzie said mentoring was a great way to get university students engaged in their community. “It really builds their leadership skills and confidence. In addition to this, students in Geelong will be connected to thousands of students doing the same projects across the country – we’re breaking the mould of apathetic teenagers and making sustainability happen.” Environment portfolio holder Cr Andy Richards said the summit was a great chance for schools to get involved in a national climate change movement. “The council is committed to making Geelong a greener, more environmentally conscious community and this is a great program to get young people involved. There are still a limited number of spots left in the summit so I encourage teachers and students to register as quickly as possible to make sure you don’t miss out.” Youth portfolio holder Cr Jan Farrell said Geelong young people would get a lot out of participating in the August 15-16 summit. “I know there are many young people in our region who are already passionate about the environment, so this will be a great inspiration for them to keep pursuing their ambitions.” For more information head to starttheswitch. aycc.org.au.

Councillor resigns THE Colac Otway Shire is temporarily one councillor short after Cr Mick McCrickard resigned due to the difficulties of balancing his civic duties and full-time work. Cr McCrickard, whose resignation came into effect on Thursday last week, said his decision came after long consideration. “While council was very important to me, my first priority is always to the students at Trinity College. “I enjoyed very much my time on council and have tremendous respect and admiration for mayor Lyn Russell, and chief executive officer Rob Small and his executive team. The staff at the council often receive negative comment but I have witnessed firsthand their hard work, professionalism and commitment to Colac Otway Shire’s residents.” The Nalangil resident said serving on the council was a positive experience and encouraged people to consider running in 2016. Cr Russell paid tribute to Cr McCrickard’s contributions to the council, as well as his work as a student welfare coordinator. The Local Government Act requires a countback of votes to be used as the first method of filling an extraordinary vacancy. This will take place at the Colac Otway PACC at 11.30am on August 21.

“These are rolling three year plans, so many activities have already gone through a community consultation and approval process either last year or the year before. “However, a significant number of new activities have been proposed in this year’s update that we’re now seeking feedback about.” He said the core of the fuel reduction work was a risk-based strategy that focused activities on public land where they were most likely to reduce the impact of major bushfires on human life and property. Meanwhile, the annual report from the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission’s (VBRC) Implementation Monitor was released last week, which found there were 250,000 hectares of planned burns over the year. Minister for Police and Emergency Services Kim

Wells said the state government had delivered 47 of the VBRC’s 67 recommendations. However, Phil Ingamells from the Victorian National Parks Association said burning targets had led to the damage of key species habitat. “The 390,000 hectare statewide burn target has been pushing DEPI to perform large burns in remote areas which needlessly damage habitat for key species at the expense of the more effective, but more difficult, smaller burns close to townships.” To see the FOP, visit your local DEPI or Parks Victoria office or head to depi.vic.gov.au/burns. The plans will be finalised in September and DEPI will publish the approved plans in early October. Significant fire reduction burns are planned in the Otways and along the Great Ocean Road.

A new lease of life for Fort Queenscliff BY DEAN WEBSTER THE federal government has committed $55,000 in funding to the Queenscliff Fort for tourism planning. In announcing the grant, Member for Corangamite Darren Cheeseman said the $55,000 grant was for the Borough of Queenscliffe Council to explore the potential of an international standard tourist product at Fort Queenscliff. “With this funding Queenscliffe Council will build a fort development plan that will identify tourist opportunities and implementation issues based on the fort’s military and maritime heritage.� The funding announcement has been enthusiastically received by Borough of Queenscliffe mayor Helene Cameron. “This is absolutely wonderful news that creates so much opportunity for Fort Queenscliff and for tourism in the borough,� Cr Cameron said. “However, the project will call for a detailed understanding of several complex issues, and will require significant consultation and the cooperation of a number of key stakeholders. “Fort Queenscliff has been part of this community for 152 years and it will be fantastic to give it a new lease of life and ensure it continues to play a major role in our community.� Classified by the National Trust and included in the Commonwealth Heritage List, Fort Queenscliff was an operational military base until 1946. From 1947-2000 the fort hosted the Australian Army Staff College, and then the Army’s Soldier Career Management Agency from 2001-2012. The army vacated the site in November 2012, leaving a defence archive centre that requires only a portion of the site. The estimated cost for the tourism development plan is $110,000, with funding of $20,000 coming

from Tourism Victoria, $30,000 from Regional Development Victoria and $5,000 from the Borough of Queenscliffe. The first step of the project is anticipated to commence in October with the appointment of a suitably qualified consultant to lead the study. The tourism development plan for Fort Queenscliff is expected to be completed by the end of June 2014.

It’s not a new fire levy, it’s a fairer fire levy. On 1 July 2013, as recommended by the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission, the Victorian Government is replacing the old fire services levy with a fairer system. Rather than being added to insurance premiums, the levy will now be collected with council rates. This means all property owners contribute a fair share to the Country Fire Authority or the Metropolitan Fire Brigade. The levy is a fixed charge of $100 for residential properties and $200 for non-residential properties, plus a variable charge based on the property’s capital improved value. All funds will go towards supporting Victoria’s fire services. GST and stamp duty charged on the old levy have been removed and, for the first time, eligible pensioners and veterans will receive a $50 concession. These reforms will save households and business around $100 million a year.

INCUMBENT Corangamite MP Darren Cheeseman has refused to back away from his claim that a federal Coalition government would use dynamite to improve the Great Ocean Road. The international tourist attraction has become a political battleground, with the electorate’s Labour and Liberal candidates campaigning on different road-related issues. The G21 Geelong Regional Alliance is seeking $25 million over five years from the federal government for urgent maintenance on the Great Ocean Road. Ms Henderson is supportive of the campaign, but neither she nor Mr Cheeseman has promised federal funding should their party win at the election. Meanwhile, Mr Cheeseman wants the Great Ocean Road to be protected by including it on the World Heritage List, and last month accused the Liberals of wanting to dynamite the road to reshape the cliffs. Last week, Ms Henderson said Mr

Cheeseman’s comments were “false and irresponsible, and show he is not fit for public office�. “While I am fighting for an urgent upgrade, Darren Cheeseman is all talk, no action and delivering zero dollars to Australia’s largest war memorial,� she said. “It is also clear that Mr Cheeseman has not done his homework in his push for World Heritage listing of the road. There is currently no World Heritage listed operational road in the world. “World Heritage listing of this iconic tourist attraction may, in fact, lock up the road in years of red tape and prevent a comprehensive upgrade.� Mr Cheeseman said he stood by his assertion. “They (the Liberal party) talk about stopping rock falls and making the road safer. The only way to do this is to reshape iconic curves, widen the road in sections, dynamite away cliffs and spray concrete cliff faces to stop rock falls. “They have plans to reshape our iconic

road and turn it into a major freight route for the south west.� He said the entire region recognised the potential of the Great Oceat Road and the Otways to be listed internationally, and there was a very strong case for World Heritage listing. MEANWHILE, Ms Henderson has taken issue with a number of Mr Cheesman’s claims in flyers mailed out to constituents. “In May for instance, Mr Cheeseman sent a flyer to Geelong residents claiming the Coalition would scrap the tax free threshold of $18,200. This is completely untrue.� Ms Henderson said that rather than apologising or desisting, Mr Cheeseman proceeded and sent “exactly the same lies to Colac residents a number of weeks ago�. Ms Henderson said other local untruths included Bellbrae residents will be receiving fibre optic cable direct to their homes as part of the NBN roll out and “the nonsensical flyer depicting an eight story high building – which looks more like a space ship – plonked on the Bells Beach cliff top.�

The Gordon opens its doors THE Gordon will open its doors on August 11 for its annual open day, giving people the opportunity to check out the largest regional TAFE in Victoria. The free event, between 10am and 3pm at both Geelong campuses, is ideal for anyone looking at further study options; whether post secondary study, apprenticeships and traineeships, upskilling for a career change, or recognition of prior learning to gain qualifications. Josie Savio is looking forward to experiencing her first open day as The Gordon’s event coordinator. “There’s plenty to see and do at our open day this year with training areas at both our campuses ‘open for inspection’, information seminars and staff and students available to discuss your study options,” she said.

Scanning technology used to find shipwrecks BY JAMES TAYLOR A TEAM of shipwreck hunters have turned to cuttingedge three dimensional mapping technology to locate sunken vessels along Victoria’s south west coastline. The 130 kilometre Shipwreck Coast is historically one of the most treacherous seafaring locations in Australia. The stretch of coast between Moonlight Head and Cape Otway contains the wrecks of more than 600 ships, although more than 350 of these are yet to be found. ShipShapeSearchers are hoping to uncover the long-forgotten hulks by using geographic information system (GIS) technology to create three dimensional reconstructions of the ocean floor. Archaeologist Alex Moss, from the not-for-profit group, said the three dimensional maps had multiple layers that could be peeled back to reveal any ships that may lie beneath. “We start with data sourced from non-archaeological sources – including industry, government and research organisations – in particular those that have been conducted using remote sensing techniques. “The remote sensing techniques include sonar, satellite surveys and LiDAR – which uses light beams fired from a plane to measure ocean depth and terrain up to 30 metres below the water’s surface. “GIS technology enables us to combine and process all of this information into a three dimensional model of the ocean floor that shows in intricate detail the different elements – whether it’s vegetation, rocks or sand – that it is comprised of.” He said GIS also helped archaeologists determine the types of materials the ships were made of as well as their condition and age, making it easier to identify the wreck itself. The ShipShapeSearchers team are trialling the technology on a test wreck in a secret Victorian location and at a shipwreck graveyard at Port Adelaide, South Australia. Head to shipshapesearchers.org for more information.

New technology is being used to find the many sunken ships along the Shipwreck Coast.

World champ Carroll joins Surfers in Suits lineup BY ALI DEANE SURFING icon and dual world champion Tom Carroll is dropping in to this month’s Surfers in Suits event where he will treat the crowd to stories from his surfing life and time on the world tour. It will be the seventh event for Surfers in Suits – a group connecting surfers in business and the corporate world through networking functions featuring inspiring mentors from the sport of surfing. Carroll grew up in Newport, Sydney, a champion junior surfer who went on to make the finals of the

1979 Pipe Masters in his rookie year on the world tour. He clinched the world title in 1983 – the first goofy foot world champion, and again in 1984. He has 26 career world tour wins under his belt and three Hawaiian Pipe Masters victories. Carroll retired from professional surfing in 1993, but continues his search for the perfect ride through the awe-inspiring Storm Surfers series with big wave charger and tow-surf partner Ross ClarkeJones. Event goers will get to meet the champ and talk to him about his surfing career.

Surfers in Suits ambassador Adam Robertson from Surfing Victoria anticipates the day to be full of surprises, including hearing the highlights and lowlights of travelling the world surfing and competing, and some of the best video footage of Carroll. “I can’t wait. I haven’t seen him in a while, but have spent time surfing with him a while back in Hawaii. It will be so good to hear old tour stories and his surfing and travel stories. Surfing is so popular now and a lot of people have surfing as a common interest, so these networking functions for

businesses and corporations are connecting people, with surfing as the theme,” Robertson said. The event on August 16 from midday to 3pm at The Waterfront Port Melbourne will be supporting the Bali Children’s Foundation with Surfers in Suits half way towards the target to fund rebuilding the Seeds of Hope orphanage roof. For more information, visit facebook.com/ SurfersInSuits, for membership inquiries and to book tables (limited availability, tickets – members $160, non-members $175) contact lizzie.burdge@ essentiallygroup.com or call 9681 9914.

Grant keeps Winchelsea Keep an eye out for warning signs of cattle lameness counselling service open “However, other contributing factors such as sign there is something wrong. BY JAMES TAYLOR

A COUNSELLING outreach service in Winchelsea has been saved from closing thanks to a $10,000 grant from the federal government. The Catholic Care service had been running in the town for the past five years, but funding was scheduled to end on June 30 before Barwon Medicare Local stepped in. Barwon Medicare Local chief executive officer Jason Trethowan announced the $10,000 grant to keep the service in Winchelsea earlier this month. “It has been clearly stated by the Winchelsea community that the counselling service is highly valued and needed,” he said. “Barwon Medicare Local is pleased to provide funding support to ensure the service remains open and together with local partners we will identify a sustainable model for the service to continue longer term. “In addition to this, we will work with a steering committee involving the local community and the Surf Coast Shire to develop a health and wellbeing plan. “Barwon Medicare Local looks forward to understanding the health and community services already provided and work on solutions where gaps have been identified.” Corangamite Federal MP Darren Cheeseman welcomed the news. “Supporting the delivery of medical services for our community is the role of Barwon Medicare Local,” he said. “The federal government established Medicare Locals to help expand GP hours, work with hospitals and community services to provide more places – and in this case, keep services open when they may have closed. “The $10,000 will provide funding to keep the service operational for the next three months while further funding sources are found. I am confident the service can be placed on a secure long term footing – this is great news for Winchelsea.”

THE Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) is urging Victorian livestock producers to pay close attention to the physical wellbeing of their livestock to prevent cattle developing lameness disease this winter. DEPI senior veterinary officer Dr Mike Jeffers said there were multiple factors that contributed to lameness in cattle and stressed the importance of minimising the risks. “Lameness is a painful physical condition that is often caused by direct trauma to the sole of a cow’s hoof, typically from standing on sharp rocks exposed as wet weather erodes farm land.

poor nutrition, injury, infections and poor genetics may also contribute to the development of this condition. Lameness can affect growth performance as cattle may be reluctant to eat or drink if standing or walking is painful. “A lame bull’s mating capability is also greatly reduced as semen quality can be affected if the lameness is due to an infection. “This can reduce financial profits for farmers as lame cows produce less milk, lose weight, take longer to cycle and are expensive to treat.” Local livestock agent Will Richardson said it’s a good idea to look out for cattle, especially bulls, sulking in the corner of the paddock, this is a sure

Ten-year old Randy Red Bull from Torquay – older bulls are more prone to hoof problems.

“We have had a tough season coming into winter, with poor rainfall during spring and summer resulting in a shortage of good hay to sustain cattle in healthy condition during the cold winter. It’s important to keep a lookout for livestock with potential health issues during this period, but at least the season ahead looks terrific, due to a milder winter, providing the rain keeps up into the spring.” Dr Jeffers said farmers could minimise the risk of cattle developing lameness this winter by keeping a sharp eye out for the warning signs. “Awkward movement, short strides, head bobbing, back arching, leg swinging and reluctance to bear wait on hoofs are all signs of lameness.”

The afternoons involved a variety of cultural activities, including mask painting, wayungkulit (shadow puppets), Indonesian cooking, batik painting and traditional dancing. “Fundraising activities organised by Indonesian teacher Kylee Millar meant that we were able to hire a truck and porter and fill the entire truck with everyday food and daily needs,” Ms Gaylard said. “We also had a car load of clothes to donate, kindly provided by

ON THE BEAT Local news: annual general meeting The next meeting will be the AGM on September 23. It is to be held at the Torquay Men’s Shed, 18 Price Street at 7.30pm and a number of committee positions will fall vacant. We are always interested in seeing new volunteers. We need people who would like to contribute their skills and energy to helping the police keep the local community safer through promoting an awareness of neighbourliness and safety considerations. Our coordinator has been leading the committee for six years and would like to be able to hand the responsibility over to another community-minded person. He would remain on the committee to support the new coordinator. Our treasurer will be resigning after six years of service in that position. He tells us that there are only a few transactions a month and it’s an easy job! He will also be on hand for advice when needed. All welcome – for enquiries about the committee and if you are interested in volunteering your services, please contact David Cheatley 0419 529 210. 10th anniversary of the Torquay Jan Juc Neighbourhood Watch It is ten years since the local committee was set up in this area and a great deal of work has been carried out over that time. The inaugural meeting was held on March 20, 2003. Volunteers at shopping centres have distributed around 2,500 reminder cards to motorists about not leaving valuables in their cars. Safe plate days each year for the past four years have been a great community event as our volunteers worked with others from The Men’s Shed, SES, and CFA. The Lions ran the sausage sizzle. Other services and events carried out and held

With Torquay / Jan Juc Neighbourhood Watch

over the past 10 years include: • Bi-monthly newsletters distributed to each home. These are delivered by about 40 volunteers and now total 4,900 copies per issue. In the newsletter there is always information about safety awareness and security hints. • Information stalls at The High Tide Festival (now Torquay Festival) • Bin stickers • Street signs • Promoting Neighbour Day 2013 by enlisting the aid of local school children to illustrate Neighbour cards; 2,500 were distributed via the schools, Spring Creek NH, the Torquay Information Centre and some churches. • We have promoted the wider NHW organisation through promotion of internet options and by encouraging people to register with B text to receive text messages about relevant safety issues in the area (see below for both of these). • Distributed “Arsonist” pamphlets warning of the inherent dangers over the summer months.

What is operation identification? Operation identification or OP ID is the recording of an identifying mark on your property to discourage its theft. Most items can be marked with an electric engraver. Items unsuitable for engraving can be marked with an ultraviolet (UV) pen which leaves a chemical that is visible under UV light. Items unsuitable for marking can be photographed next to a ruler or coin to show a size relationship. If you have a mobile phone, we do not recommend that you engrave your details into the phone as it may void the manufacturer’s warranty. We recommend the use of a UV pen in this situation. In Victoria, we use our driver’s licence number, (or that of a relative or friend from whom we have obtained permission) preceded by V for Victoria, for example, V 12345678. A small sticker is then placed on the item so marked as a visible deterrent to thieves.

Check the safety of your gas heater An unsafe heater can cause a house fire or can pollute your home with dangerous fumes. Always ensure you have some airflow – ventilation allows fresh air in and fumes can go out.

Follow the operating instructions. Have the heater serviced regularly by a licenced gas fitter endorsed for gas appliance servicing. Warning signs – it is important to have the heater checked if there is a yellow or sooty flame (unless it is a decorative log gas fire), if the pilot light “pops” when lighting, there are signs of heat damage (discolouration) on the walls or heater panels or when the walls become too hot to touch while the heater is on.

Darcy takes charge for a good cause BY JAMES TAYLOR CASUAL clothes, chocolate cake and icy poles made a fleeting appearance in the curriculum of St Therese Catholic Primary School last week. Prep pupil Darcy Walters won a raffle last term to become principal for a day at the Torquay school, and took over the principal’s office on Tuesday with grade 6 buddies Clay Page and Oliver Poole. Darcy made good use of his day at the top, introducing a longer recess, casual clothes for pupils and teachers, sports and electronic games, and icy poles for everyone at lunchtime. Meanwhile, usual principal Pauline Audley was delegated to visit all the classrooms to say hello and to make an announcement over the PA system, but Darcy’s rule that a chocolate cake be ordered for the staff was enjoyed by the teachers. The switch in authority was used as a fundraiser

for the school’s Reach Vietnam project, which aims to support a boarding system run by the Nazareth parish for mainly secondary school girls from the villages around the Kon Tum Province. Five of the school’s staff and parish priest Father Linh Tran will also visit the area during the September school holidays. Ms Audley said Tuesday’s event raised $550 but the school hoped to eventually raise about $10,000, which will help lift the number of accommodated girls at the parish from eight to 60. “It’s a two-hour walk for some of these girls, so they drop out of education in secondary school.” She said St Therese pupils had a strong connection with Asia through their studies, and the three-year outreach project was inspired by the school’s grade 6 pupils. “We do fundraising for different things every year, so we thought we could combine that with something for people in need.”

Junior Tigers flock to the footy BY JAMES TAYLOR

The Torquay Tigers under 10 Grossman side at Spring Creek Recreation Reserve. Photo: JAMES TAYLOR

JUNIOR footy at the Tigers is kicking on, with 12 sides learning the skills that will hold them in good stead as they progress to more senior ranks in coming years. Torquay’s six under 10 and six under 12 sides will play their last games this weekend, but the club is already thinking about finding young boys and girls to sign up for the 2014 season. Gavin Nelson, who manages the under 10 Grossman side, said Poppy was the only girl in the 22-player team but she had fitted right in. “She’s treated like everyone else, she’s a superstar.” He said half of the Grossman side was in their second year, while the other half had come straight from the Auskick program. “Participation is the big thing, of course, but I think

we’ve only lost three games for the year. “There’s no ladder, it’s just all about learning how to play football. There are a high percentage of kids who keep going on to senior footy, as well as great participation from the parents.” Torquay alone takes up a sixth of the 36 sides in the under 10 league, with other teams including Aireys Inlet, Anglesea, Drysdale, Modewarre, Lara and South Barwon. Mr Nelson said part of the reason for the Tigers having so many junior sides was the club had a very large catchment area to draw from. “You go from basically Grovedale all the way to Anglesea. There’s heaps of schools, and kids have got to play football somewhere.” For more information on junior football at the Torquay Tigers, phone under 10 coordinator Mel Sayers on 0408 763 334.

Doggie do’s and don’ts

The big cake bake

Dear Editor,

Dear Editor,

Sadly my ignorance led me to believe that the signs on the path at Pt Addis that require dogs to be on a leash meant just the path to the beach, not the beach as well. I was informed by a Parks Victoria ranger that my dog had to be on a leash and that the rule had been that way for a few years. How was this allowed to happen? The health benefits of dog ownership are well documented. More and more limits on where we can walk them off-leash is madness. There are no hooded plovers nesting on the beach and like most responsible dog owners I do not allow my dog (my dog is obedience trained) into any of the dune areas. This is unlike the many two legged creatures that frequent the dunes along with the feral cats and foxes, which do far more damage than I, and others walking our dogs, do. Who does Parks Victoria think uses this beach the most?

I wonder how many of us still take time to bake a cake for family, friends, workmates or loved ones. This month, Red Cross is encouraging everyone to discover the joy of cooking simply by joining the Red Cross Big Cake Bake. Celebrity chefs, schools, community groups and everyday cooks from throughout this area will be making a real difference for people in need by cooking, sharing and enjoying delicious homemade treats as part of the Red Cross Big Cake Bake. All the money raised will help support Red Cross services and programs such as providing breakfast for primary school children who might otherwise go hungry, providing life saving clean water to communities overseas, and relief for those who have lost everything through disasters. The official Big Cake Bake day is Monday August 26 but to make sure nobody misses out, events can be held anytime throughout August. To become a Big Cake Bake host register at bigcakebake.org.au.

Rural cats exempt Dear Editor, Why on earth are rural cats exempt from staying out late? Surely there is the likelihood that more of our native animals and birds will be found in rural areas? I just cannot understand the reasoning behind this cat curfew. Whilst on the subject of animals, I am not surprised we dog owners are not always tolerated. The amount of doggo found down by the beach, along the river, through the park is just dreadful. I watched a gentleman with his dog down by the river just the other day; he turned his back as his dog did what he needed to do. Anonymous Surf Coast

Nail, head, drain issue Dear Editor, Judy Bracken’s letter (“The quicksand struggle”, July 30) hits the nail on the head by once again raising the question of management neglect of the Portarlington waterfront, drains being the issue in this instance (see photo). Drains have become symbolic of the whole of the Portarlington waterfront area, with the ongoing tug-of-war between the responsible authorities (Bellarine Bayside and the City of Greater Geelong) simply promoting neglect. For many years, the last 20 years in fact, both bodies have continued to avoid taking any positive action on this essential matter, whilst maintenance and development of local infrastructure fails to keep pace with growing population pressures. Our state government representatives also have little to be proud of in this regard. But this neglect goes to more than drains alone. Compare the condition of this waterfront with other nearby Port Phillip beach fronts like Queenscliff or the Mornington Peninsula. It is important to note are each managed solely by their local municipal councils. What a contrast! Portarlington is a shambles – a classic example of the failure of shared responsibility. The emphasis by both management authorities is on tourism to the neglect of the environment and the needs of residents. But when it comes to looking after the caravan parks or running a bike race/triathlon, both bodies take prompt action to see that the interests of money spending visitors are always given priority, whilst the interests of permanent residents and ratepayers continue to run a poor second.

Sign here for signature event Since its humble beginnings 16 years ago the Portarlington Golf Club’s Carnival of Golf has become the club’s signature event.

On course during Portarlington Golf Club’s Carnival of Golf. (INSET): Winner of the men’s 36 hole event last year Jerome Marinovic with life member Frank Humphreys.

HELD annually, the nine-day event showcases the award winning golf course and the extensive clubhouse facilities including the newly installed TAB, Keno, entertainment room and Fairways Bistro run by head chef Chris Vakidis, who was Community Clubs Association of Victoria Chef of the Year 2012. The beautifully designed Cashmore course features 18 holes, practice nets, putting green and a driving range which are maintained all year round by our experienced ground staff. The standard of the course will impress even the harshest critic. At the Victorian Golf Industry Awards earlier this year the club won the Regional Pro Am of the Year and for the second year running the Regional Pro Am Course of the Year, which was a huge milestone in the club’s history. The Carnival of Golf consists of 13 events – six men’s, five ladies’ and two mixed events – commencing Saturday August 31 and finishing on Sunday September 9. Last year saw a record 1,300 entries attracting golfers from all over the state from all different levels of age and experience. With most events filling up fast the club is encouraging interested players to get their entries in early to avoid disappointment. A club spokesperson said that with great accommodation venues in the area it is a great way to spend some time away and maybe even make a mini holiday out of the event. With and extensive range of excellent prizes and trophies (valued at over $15,000) on offer, the Carnival of Golf is a major event on most golfing enthusiasts’ calendars. With the generous support of local businesses it makes for a truly memorable experience on the pristine Bellarine Peninsula in an event not to be missed.

So, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a big nudge to ramp up your efforts to eat nutrient-rich food, be active and get into shape.

Women’s self defence class to improve safety BY ALI DEANE HAVE you been thinking about your safety and what you can do to improve your self defence skills? Fiona Skene’s WISE Self Defence is providing a free self defence workshop for women in Lorne next week. WISE Self Defence aims to teach and assist in gaining vital life skills, to empower people to make positive decisions in their lives so they can take control and live a more fulfilling life. A self defence workshop with WISE offers life changing skills that can protect, advance, and empower you. You’ll learn skills to protect your life on an everyday basis, prevention strategies as well as simple skills that help to get out of grabs, holds, and fearful situations. Defusing strategies, with the intent of stopping or avoiding a situation, will also be taught. The emotional and physical skills learnt will give vital life skills that give certainty and safety in all aspects of life. The classes are not physically demanding and they are catered to everyone’s personal situations, and easy to remember. Ms Skene has been teaching empowerment and self defence programs for over 28 years. She has studied Ninjitsu, pressure point tactics and tactical response, and worked alongside coaches from around the world, bringing a depth of knowledge and excitement to her teaching. The Taekwondo black belt said if you want to protect your life and learn simple skills to prevent or get out of situations then a self defence class is a must. The free self defence workshop for women of any age includes discussion on how to keep safe. It will run in the multi purpose room at the Lorne Leisure Centre on William Street next Tuesday

These teddies have dressed in yellow for Daffodil Day; Cancer Council Victoria is asking school to get involved and do the same.

Schools asked to grow hope on Daffodil Day

A free self defence class for women is being held in Lorne next Tuesday.

August 13 from 7pm to 8.30pm. To register your interest contact Fiona via fiona@wiseselfdefence.com.au, and for more information head to wiseselfdefence.com.au.

CANCER Council Victoria is inviting schools across Australia to help grow hope for a cancer free future this Daffodil Day, August 23. Getting involved is easy, fun and a great way for students and the school community to participate in fundraising for vital cancer research, prevention and support services, like the Cancer Council helpline 13 11 20. Funds raised help support the 78 Victorians who are told they have cancer every day. Raising awareness is an important part of fundraising. Introducing Daffodil Day in the classroom will help your students understand why and how they are contributing to beating cancer and growing hope for Daffodil Day. Your class can help make a difference to the many lives affected by cancer. Schools can register to receive a Dress Yellow for Daffodil Day kit and sell Daffodil Day merchandise to raise even more. Discounted merchandise is on sale or return, meaning it’s free for schools to get involved

and gifts sold in schools are at specially reduced prices. Simply call the events hotline on 1300 65 65 85 to get involved. Free school resources including lesson plans, arts and crafts activities and links to board of studies syllabus are available to download from the Daffodil Day website, at daffodilday.com.au schools activity program. A Cancer Council spokesperson said Daffodil Day is a chance for all of us to grow hope for a brighter, cancer free future. “The survival rate for many common cancers has increased by 30 per cent in the past two decades, but there is still more to do. “This year Cancer Council aims to raise $8.25 million for Daffodil Day. “With the support from schools, individuals and the community we can all make a difference.” You can register your school, order a merchandise box or donate by visiting daffodilday.com.au, phoning 1300 65 65 85 or finding it on Facebook.

Roadworthy overhaul to reduce red tape VICROADS will overhaul the roadworthiness system in a red tape blitz which could save Victorians up to $73 million annually. Treasurer Michael O’Brien announced VicRoads would assess the need for roadworthy certificates on newer vehicles through a consultation process, which will begin immediately. The options put up for consultation are: • remove the requirement for vehicles less than three years of age to present a roadworthiness certificate on transfer of ownership • remove the requirement for vehicles less than three years of age to present a roadworthiness certificate on transfer of ownership and develop a shorter safety test to reduce the costs involved • remove the requirement for vehicles less than five years of age to present a roadworthiness certificate on transfer of ownership and develop a shorter safety test to reduce the costs involved. “This will result in significant savings in time, convenience and money for car owners changing over vehicles,” Mr O’Brien said. “Most companies and fleet operators change over their vehicles regularly and there will be significant savings for them if they don’t have to get a road worthiness certificate every time there’s a change of ownership. “If you have a newer car, which has been regularly

serviced, it’s unlikely there would be any need to check many of the items which are standard for a road worthiness test. “Newer vehicles are typically well serviced, often under warranty, and are usually in good condition. “What we won’t be changing is the requirement for inspections of items like tyres or brakes, as these are the areas which accident statistics show are the most likely cause of defect-related crashes. “This would reduce the time required for a roadworthy, which should lead to a reduction in the cost, which is currently around $150. “Buyers or sellers of newer cars will still be able to choose to have a broader safety inspection done if they wish.” The road worthiness system review is one of several initiatives which will be implemented by VicRoads in coming months. The other red tape reductions include the scrapping of registration stickers from January 1 2014. VicRoads will continue to examine the way in which it does business to further reduce red tape and costs to all Victorian road users. For more information about the changes go to the VicRoads website vicroads.vic.gov.au. The Streamlining Victoria’s Roadworthiness System consultation paper can be downloaded at consult.vicroads.vic.gov.au/roadworthy. A mechanic runs tests as part of a roadworthy examination. VicRoads plans to overhaul the road worthiness system.

Road rules consistency could make roads safer 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.

ROAD safety could be enhanced by improving the consistency of road rules and vehicle standards across the country, according to a National Transport Commission (NTC) report. NTC chief executive officer and commissioner Paul Retter AM said the Review of the Australian Road Rules and Vehicle Standards Rules – Draft Evaluation Report recommends a range of measures to improve the development and implementation of the Australian road rules and Australian vehicle standards rules. “Since the national road and vehicle standards rules were introduced in 1999 they have helped to make these rules much more consistent across Australia, improving road safety,” Mr Retter said. “However, further improvements are proposed to ensure that some important rules are uniform, and that rule changes are implemented in a consistent

and timely manner.” The major recommendation from the Draft Evaluation Report is to move from the current model law approach, which is a guide for states and territories to create their own laws, to an applied law approach. An applied law approach involves one state enacting a law, which the other states and territories use as their own legislation. “While the model law approach has produced generally good outcomes, it has led to the inconsistent implementation of some rules because of variations made by states and territories, and different periods of time taken to introduce new or updated rules. “This affects the efficiency and safety of our transport system,” Mr Retter said. “We are now seeking more information on the costs and benefits of moving to an applied law

approach, in order to prepare a detailed cost benefit analysis for ministers to consider.” The Australian vehicle standards rules relating to heavy vehicles are already created with applied law and are administered by the new national heavy vehicle regulator. The NTC’s proposed reform would extend the use of applied law to cover all types of vehicles. The NTC is now seeking feedback on the recommendations contained in the Draft Evaluation Report, until submissions close on September 2. Submissions received will be used to inform the final recommendations to be submitted to ministers from the Standing Council on transport and infrastructure in late 2013. The report does not review the content of specific individual road rules, which are reviewed periodically by dedicated maintenance groups.

MUCH TO LOVE ABOUT LORNE FESTIVAL BY ALI DEANE THE countdown is on for the Lorne Festival of Performing Arts, with just one month to go until the town lights up with street performances, cabaret shows, dance, music, entertaining children’s shows and more. The festival that celebrates culture by the sea will bring locals and visitors a huge array of stories, tunes and visual treats to venues across Lorne September 6-8. Tickets went on sale in June, and this year’s program boasts a lineup to entice audiences of all ages from rockabilly trio The Rechords, dynamic Melbourne sextet The Tiger and Me to acapella vocal quartet The Nymphs. Kids will love checking out Circus Oz on the lawns of The Mantra, the cheeky giant bouncing kangaroos in Icarus Roo’d, the funny, physical comedy of Dislocate in Three Speed Crunch Box, and the lights and energetic dance theatre of Tradewinds by Polytoxic. Burlesque beauties Gypsy Wood and Maude Davey will spice up the festival with their newest shows. Festival favourite Mikelangelo will perform as Johnny Cash in Song of the Outlaw, cabaret vixen Christa Hughes brings us Beer Drinking Woman and Neurotic Ladyland, there’ll be the witty and wonderful Tina Del Twist and Wes Snelling in Kiosk. For those who love live comedy, Melbourne’s Asher Treleaven promises an entire hour of laughs, in his best-of show Bad Dandy. “My solo show is an hour of funny, if you want to laugh for an hour, that’s what I’m bringing to Lorne,” the Melbourne stand-up said. “Bad Dandy is a hodge-podge of all my favourite pieces from the past five years touring and gigging.” Since launching himself into show biz in 2000, Treleaven has taken shows to Edinburgh Fringe, London’s Soho Theatre, New York and around Australia, winning him multiple awards and accolades. His blend of physical comedy, stand-up and burgeoning sense of socio-political satire have made him one of the most fascinating and outrageous comics working in Australia today.

“Live comedy is so much better. “You laugh more at live comedy than any other, because it’s communal and you all end up laughing together,” Treleaven said. “Festivals are just awesome fun, there’s a sense of community, and a buzz. Australians love a festival. And Lorne seems like a pretty arty, alternative town, I like the vibe there, and it’s so great that so many performers are coming to Lorne from Melbourne.” Treleaven encouraged everyone to get down to Lorne next month “to have a giggle and support the arts”. The Lorne Festival of Performing Arts takes over Lorne September 6-8. For more information and tickets head to lovelornefestival.com.au, the Lorne visitor information centre or phone 1300 365 901.

Melbourne stand-up Asher Treleavan is bringing his new show Bad Dandy, an hour of laughs, to Lorne’s Festival of Performing Arts next month.

G R A P E V I N E BROUGHT TO YOU BY

JON HELMER

The tarred rose TAR and roses is an oft used juxtaposed descriptor of the famous noble red grape variety Nebbiolo from Piedmont in north western Italy. In some cases, it is used in a general sense when referencing dry, tannic, floral accented Italian reds. In Australia, it’s the perfect name for a wine label whose red wines are a summation of just that aesthetic – Tar & Roses, which conjures up an overall theme of dark, earthy, rich wines with heady aromas surrounded by floral tinges and flowery verve and nuance. “That’s it, that’s the name, that’s our wines,” the winemakers said, and the journey began, but before that, an all together different path had been trod. The two people behind this label – Don Lewis (highly credentialed industry veteran of exMitchelton fame) and Narelle King (moved over from accounting background into working in the cellar, going on to complete a winemaking degree and has never looked back) developed a strong friendship and working relationship at Mitchelton before Don’s interest in European varietals and the chance for them both to work in Priorat in Spain took over and their winemaking destinies were intertwined. It was here in 2004 – working out of a small garage in a tiny village surrounded by hills of old gnarly bush vines planted in dark stony poor soils – that they got to work on immersing themselves in the art of traditional winemaking. Eventually, the dream ended and the two were back in Australia, but the bug of working with emerging grape varieties – specifically Tempranillo, Sangiovese and Nebbiolo – had bitten hard and so Tar & Roses was born, with grapes sourced from multifarious regions – Heathcote, the Alpine Valleys, Strathbogie and some from Don’s own vineyard in Nagambie. They also make elegant but rich and spicy Shiraz and their Pinot Grigio (the only white wine in the range) is very popular, but it’s their Spanish/Italian varietals that really embody the Tar & Roses spirit. If you haven’t already, they’re worth checking out.

bad! I guess it’s more about their expectations) but Don and Narelle have purposely chosen to leave it alone as they believe that if you do take it out it’s just another process that takes away from the final result, and what a result! Fresh, clean, and fragrant with delicate acidity and good length of favour that includes the tell tale nashi pear. Delicious!

Tar & Roses Heathcote/Alpine Valleys Tempranillo 2012 ($25) Tempranillo (pronounced Tem–pra–nee–yo) is an indigenous Spanish red grape variety that’s gained incredible momentum in Australia with plantings in areas such as Heathcote, King Valley, and McLaren Vale. Heathcote is quite a warm region and the Tempranillo vines thrive in this environment. Heady dark fruit aromas greet then flow through onto the gorgeously rich, ripe spicy black cherry palate with savoury edge. Fantastic.

Tar & Roses Heathcote Nebbiolo 2006 ($40) This wine is just now starting to really open up and show us the wonder that is Nebbiolo. The colour is light but the fragrant fruit profile is profoundly rich and exotic having come forward on the palate and the tannins have softened to make this an outstanding example of Australian Nebbiolo.

Tar & Roses Central Victorian Pinot Grigio 2012 ($20) With a slight whisper of pink in the wines colour which derives from the skin contact that some, if not most wineries ‘bleach’ out of the wine so it ‘looks’ more appealing to the consumer (not that it looks

St Leonard’s jazz man Steve Murphy (left) and his jazztet have been delighting audiences on the Bellarine Peninsula. Catch him and band this Saturday night at Lola’s Bistro and Wine Bar.

Steve Murphy Jazztet delights BY ALI DEANE LOCAL musician Steve Murphy is reigniting the feel good jazz flame on the Bellarine with a series of shows sure to please music lovers far and wide. If you haven’t caught Murphy with his jazztet or solo, you will be in for a treat this Saturday night when the three piece performs at Lola’s Bistro and Wine Bar in St Leonards for dinner and a show featuring jazz and Latin of the 50s and 60s. Master of the clarinet, saxophone and flute, Murphy has made various recordings of chamber music and jazz for the ABC, appeared in concerts at the National Gallery of Victoria and jazz concerts at the Kilgour Winery. The respected music educator from St Leonards has also been involved with one of Australia’s most successful school bands, the Sweethearts, from Geelong’s Mathew Flinders Girl’s Secondary College. Murphy’s recent dinner shows at Lola’s were completely sold out. If that is the case this Saturday night and you miss out, the Steve Murphy Jazztet will join blues artist

Wayne Jury for another special show next month, also at St Leonards’ Lola’s Bistro and Wine Bar, on Saturday September 14. Later in the year, punters can look forward to catching Murphy with Ashley Ward on guitar and Rob Gador on bass during the St Leonards Festival in November. For show bookings – $38 including a two course meal – on Saturday August 10 and Saturday September 14, contact Lola’s Bistro and Wine Bar on 5257 1300.

EARLY bird tickets for Anglesea Music Festival (AMF) have just been released and have taken flight. Festival director Karen Stoneham said that with three successful music festivals to its name, AMF 2013 is geared to exceed even 2012’s success as winner of the Surf Coast Shire’s Community Event of the Year award. “Planning is well underway with some amazing artists lined up and the idea’s seeds are fully germinating. Ticket sales for AMF are up and running, already outstripping last year’s numbers.” Ms Stoneham said punters who haven’t yet taken advantage, the early bird special for the weekend pass for the festival which runs October 18-20 now is the time to do so. “This is our year. We are delivering one of our absolute best artist lineups ever and the first announcement is only the beginning.” Australian music legend Brian Cadd will headline the festival. Ms Stoneham said Cadd is one of the key figures in the history of Australian music and will have audiences singing along. In a lineup that covers most genres, with more announcements to come, rocker Dallas Frasca, Scottish songstress Sandi Thom, grunge rock blues band Cleveland Blues, motor city soul performers Sweethearts, 70s glam rock gods The Glitter Gang, roots musician Jay Hoad, and rhythm and blues band Oozin Blues have already been named on the bill. “We are having an absolute ball and are truly

revelling in the fact that we can bring all these versatile, talented and also exceptional artists to our thankful audience along with some of the best of the next generation of headliners,” Ms Stoneham said. To get the excitement really pumping AMF announced a competition. It’s Your Time’ will be at the forefront of creating a festival of merrymaking and feasting of the senses. Arts Vic Busking stages will be sprinkled throughout the main venues, along with family activities including art and movement, creative workshops, market stalls, and multicultural food and indulgences, creating a visual (and musical) extravaganza in the buzzing village hub that is Anglesea Music Festival.

with Mary-Ellen Belleville

THERE is no doubt – everyone one of us can easily count five food items that hold very strong memories for us. One of my “five” is waffles. Lurking in the deep corner of a seldom used kitchen cupboard was a gleaming chrome lidded electrical gadget that looked like it came either from Dr Who’s kitchen – or was designed by a UFO spotter; very 1950s, circular, with a chunky domed lid which revealed the distinctive small-squared surface of the cast iron cooking plates. It would cleverly mark the cooked batter so that when you prized it off the heated surface, you had four quarters of piping hot waffle which only needed lashings of butter and a quick hand to munch them down whilst they were luscious and hot. Ahh! Such a memory, mind you what helped to make them special was that we didn’t have them very often and so they were always considered a treat. Years later, one of the gifts given to me as a bride was the latest gadget for the kitchen – a vertical grill, which I immediately exchanged for a waffle iron!

A sunny yellow neat design which had the additional benefits of being Teflon coated (no more prizing the waffles off) and instead of a simple circle, it had a “petal” shape so that the quarters were heart-shaped when divided – very dainty for high tea, morning tea and any other excuse to wander down memory lane with freshly cooked waffles. Electric waffle makers are easy to find in specialty kitchenware shops or departments. Thermostatically controlled, they will deliver waffles crisp and brown on the outside. It is the melted butter in the mix that adds to the colour and flavour. Recently, to my delight, I happened to find a pair of antique irons – a simple and clever cast design which nestles in its own circular stand making it possible to cook waffles over coals whilst camping, or over a gas flame. In 14th century Holland, only the wealthiest of homes would possess cast wafer or waffle irons and the pattern would often be a coat of arms. Unleavened cakes would be cooked in them, usually made from corn flour, and flipped over in the flames to cook

WAFFLES ON THE RISE the other side. Belgian or Liege waffles have slight variations in the leavening and amount of sweetness. Today in Europe waffles are eaten as a snack, or a dessert, and are often sold by street vendor stalls. They can be dusted with sugar, jam, whipped cream or a hazelnut spread – never with maple syrup. The pilgrims introduced waffles to North America and waffle frolics (waffle parties) were all the rage in 18th century America! Of course, serving waffles as a dessert with a vanilla flecked rich ice cream and a caramel sauce is a fun and homely finish (“in the old fashioned kinda way”) to a meal. So just check the dark recesses of your kitchen cupboard for a waffle maker and bring them on – everyone will be licking their lips! Cooking waffles is a fun way to get children involved in the kitchen, creating memories for the future. As they say, everything old is new again – so perhaps I will hold a waffle frolic for friends very soon?

Torquay Books is celebrating with the nation TORQUAY Books will be celebrating National Bookshop Day on August 10 by hosting authors from Torquay and the local area. Claire Saxby and Melva Ouliaris will do story reading for the young ones starting at 11am. Children are encouraged to go dressed as their favourite book character. In the afternoon, well known local author John Bartlett and traveller Graeme Robin will join Julie Rennie, Joan Westerman and Maxine Flakemore to chat to customers about their books. Other local authors will be popping in throughout the day. Torquay Books invites customers old and new, young and old to drop in and celebrate with us the wonderful experience of visiting a bookshop. There will be giveaways and spot prizes all day. Torquay Books owner Rosemary Featherston said bookshops are a place where everyone is welcome, where it’s free to enter and be surrounded by new and old authors. “A bookshop is a place where ideas abound, new writers and new readers are nurtured, conversations happen and friendships bloom. “You can still hold a book in your hand, enjoy the

true sensory pleasure of what books have to offer and you can talk with a bookseller who is passionate about what they do every day. “Bookshops and booksellers are worth celebrating, and this is the day to come out and say ‘Hi! We need you and we love what you do for our communities’.” Supported by the Australian Booksellers Association, bookshops will be reinforcing their message that local bookshops are an integral part of the Australian way of life. They are the first point of contact between the reader and books. They care about the customer, the reader, and the books they want to read. Australian Booksellers Association chief executive officer Joel Becker said the day is a specific occasion where we can celebrate the unique place that bookshops have in the community, and celebrate their role in the local community, and the myriad of ways in which they contribute to the local economy, and to Australian culture and society. Torquay Books is located at 1A/9 Gilbert Street, Torquay. National Bookshop Day is August 10. For more details about events at the shop contact Rosemary Featherston on 5261 2311.

mind matters

Tuesday 6 August 2013

© Joanne Madeline Moore 2013

The new moon boosts your leadership qualities – and your tendency to bossy behaviour. Cool down Capricorn! You think you know how a loved one is feeling but you may be way off the mark. The current situation is much more complex than it appears so take your time and don’t do anything rash. Nurture your international contacts, who knows where they may lead?

Your energy levels get a welcome boost, as the ne0w moon falls in fellow fire sign Leo. So it’s time to be creative, sporty or just super social. If you’re lacking motivation, look to a child, teenager or friend to provide the extra inspiration you need. With Jupiter stirring up your domestic zone, many restless Rams are in the mood to renovate, redecorate or relocate.

Have you been talking about paying off debt or saving for something special – like a car, holiday or home deposit? This week, with the new moon stimulating your cash zone, you need to put your money where your mouth is and take action, but be careful you don’t overextend yourself. Plus avoid getting drawn into a prolonged power struggle with a loved one.

Expect the unexpected, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. If you are depending on loved ones to be punctual and organized, then you’ll be sadly disappointed. If you expect them to be unpredictable and exciting, then you’ll have a stimulating week. Contributing your Libran talents to a joint venture or group project brings much personal satisfaction.

The new moon is a magical time of beginnings and the promise of things to come. Family and home life are where you need to make some changes and adjustments – the sooner the better. If things have been tense with a loved one, swallow your pride and get talking. It’s also the perfect time to add value to your residence via repairs, renovations or a quick paint job.

What a wonderful week for lively Lions, as the new moon and Mercury light up your sign. You’re bound to be the centre of attention which is just the way you like it. Plus Venus blesses financial matters and business deals. Your motto for the moment is from Andy Warhol born on August 6 “Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.”

With the new moon powering through your professional zone, you need to create work opportunities and explore all your career options. If you’re looking for employment, the early bird catches the worm! But avoid using emotional manipulation, underhand tactics or guilt trips to get what you want on Thursday. There is just no substitute for open and honest communication.

The sun/Uranus trine encourages you to make positive adjustments. Be inspired by birthday great Andy Warhol “They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change things yourself.” Is a close relationship going nowhere fast? The new moon provides a golden opportunity to resuscitate a tired old romance, or navigate an exciting new one.

The new moon urges you to find fresh ways to connect with those around you whether at home, at work or in your local community. And with Mercury your ruling planet shifting into Leo, your creative talents and communication skills are firing so don’t waste them. Express yourself Gemini! When it comes to money matters, you may need to make a snap decision.

You won’t feel wildly social, as the new moon and Mercury move through your privacy zone. Put aside some “me time” to unwind, so you can concentrate on the three R’s – rest, relaxation and renewal. You’ll be amazed what you pick up if you step back and observe from the sidelines. It’s also a great week to power through paperwork, research projects and tie up loose ends.

You’ll feel restless, fired up and ready to go as the new moon activates your adventure zone. Try to arrange a challenging project or weekend trip to channel all that excess energy into. In your haste to get things done don’t jump to half-baked conclusions, and then pass on incorrect information. Get the facts straight, otherwise mix-ups are likely, especially over money.

Do you feel dismally disorganised? Is your lack of a daily routine letting you down? Perhaps it’s time to tune into the energy of the new moon and try a more creative and organised approach? Focus your mind and pay attention to small details. If you confuse fact with fantasy on Thursday, you could end up with a complicated mess on your hands. Keep it real!

When it comes to dinner, be spoilt for Choice FINDING the time to prepare and cook a nutritious meal every night can be a challenge. Thinking of a dish, doing the shopping and creating the meals takes time and effort. If you fnd it testing to come up with healthy meal options every night, there’s a business that can freshen up your ideas in the kitchen and lend you a helping hand. For almost two decades, Choice Fresh Meals has kept people well fed without the hassle of preparation.

‘It’s so much easier to do the shopping now’ Alex and Elspeth Adams have taken advantage of the frm’s service. The couple, in their 80s, decided to try out Choice Fresh Meals two years ago and have never looked back. Mr Adams said the convenience was one of its biggest drawcards. ‘‘They deliver fresh meals all the time and it saves us going out to the supermarket a few times a week to buy everything and then cook it up,’’ he said. ‘It’s so much easier to do the shopping now, because we don’t have to worry with the butcher or anything.’’ But it’s not only convenient; Choice Fresh Meals is saving the couple money. ‘‘When you go out to the supermarket to buy everything, you tend to waste a lot, but you don’t waste anything with these meals so you’re saving money,’’ Mr Adams said. ‘‘It also saves on electricity bills.’’ The only thing he fnds hard about the service is choosing what to eat. ‘‘They have a lot of different dishes with lots of different ingredients, so sometimes we have so

much choice it’s hard to decide,’’ he said. ‘‘But no matter what we get, it’s very tasty.’’ Choice Fresh Meals has been operating in Victoria for the past 17 years. It delivers bread and milk tocustomers’ doors in Geelong and Melbourne and on the Bellarine and Mornington Peninsulas up to three times a week. The Company offers more than 80 meals, including roasts, casseroles, quiches, pastas, fsh, grills, pies, soups and desserts. The meals are delivered fresh, not frozen, and there is a range of diabetic and low-salt meals with a dietary analysis of each meal. The menu is regularly updated and changes to provide customers with variety and interesting seasonal offers. The meals are made with high-quality ingredients by trained chefs who have worked in fve-star establishments. The Company is offering new customers a free dessert with every main meal ordered (a limit of 10 free desserts applies). For information, go to choicefreshmeals.com.au or phone 1300 430 488.

So much to do at Sea View BY ALI DEANE RESIDENTS at Sea Views Manor have been soaking up the winter sun this season thanks to the creation of new garden beds, a hot house and outdoor beach style café in their gardens in Ocean Grove. Following the Mother’s Day Garden Party, ideas flourished and work began on outdoor chairs and tables and raised garden beds under guidance from lifestyle coordinator Glen Chidzey. The café will officially open this spring and will be the perfect meeting spot for friends and families to catch up over coffee and home grown goodies from the garden. Mr Chidzey said the project had brought residents together, helped the formation of new friendships and encouraged them to get outdoors to soak up some vitamin D. “We are a large community here, and we want to make it as social and active as we can by promoting social relationships. It’s a lovely environment, which stimulates the senses, and residents enjoy the whole ambience of being outside. One of our residents came to us with the idea for a hot house, he’s been growing

rice and cotton, and it’s been a great talking point, so we thought we’d build a café out here, like a beach side café. We’ve done a bit of work. We’ll grow our own herbs and veggies and hope to personalise the café with what we’re growing. We’re nurturing the people here, and they like nurturing the garden.” It’s just one of the many activities residents can get into at Sea Views Manor. From daily morning walks, regular aerobic exercise workouts, daily reading sessions, projects with local schools, partnerships with RSL and Rotary Clubs, and regular special events including the Biggest Morning Tea, carpet bowls, games and evening cabarets, Mr Chidzey said it was a seven day affair. “We try to engage residents in something they want to do. It’s definitely an active home, we get a lot of great feedback, and our residents have wonderful stories to share.” Family and friends are welcome to visit residents at Sea View Manor anytime, located at 77-83 Tareeda Way, Ocean Grove – offering high quality aged care with personalised programs. For more phone 5256 2866 or visit homestyleagedcare.com.au.

The management team at Homestyle Aged Care’s Sea Views Manor in Ocean Grove; Emily, Sharina and Mandy welcome friends and family to visit any time.

“When a Homestyle facility becomes your home, you are encouraged to maintain your independence and exercise freedom of choice while being supported by friendly, qualified staff”

If you don’t move it, you’ll lose it – yoga for seniors If winter has seen you retreat indoors, move less and little niggles have been showing up, then you might want to try yoga; the ancient Indian practice involving postures, breathing and meditation. BY ALI DEANE

improved – so it’s proven itself to me.” If you have severe ailments, Ms Louise recommends seeing a teacher one on one, to learn what you can and can’t do, and how to do it safely. She said the best way is to start from the very beginning, find a teacher, work one on one, or find a gentle class and start there. “At an older age it’s not so much about looking good, it’s more about the inner body, and keeping the body mobile and pain free. Anyone can practice

yoga, you’ve just got to find the appropriate level.” Ms Louise’s sunny Sanctuary Yoga Studio in Jan Juc is warm and a true retreat for both body and mind, offering classes for beginners to advanced. Surf Coast Yoga at Bells Beach offers a senior’s class on Thursday mornings. Jan Juc Yoga offers a range of classes at Bellbrae Hall and Zeally and Cliff in Torquay. Sea Yoga Studio in Torquay has a range of classes, levels and retreats.

Yogadhara (Bryan) at Satyananda Yoga holds classes at Spring Creek Community House in Torquay. Classes with Karin Hagberg at Aspire Wellbeing take place in Torquay, Aireys Inlet and Anglesea. Lotus school of yoga has locations in Geelong, the Surf Coast and Ocean Grove. And there are many more, so have a look around, and get ready to try yoga, and experience the many benefits for mind and body.

YOGA is popular among people of all ages and abilities and builds strength, flexibility, cardiovascular health, aerobic fitness and balance, offering life changing benefits for the body and mind. There are many yoga studios and instructors on the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula, and classes range from beginner to advanced, solo tuition and group sessions. After learning proper technique, participants can practice yoga at any time at home, or progress to a more advanced class. Sally Louise at Sanctuary Yoga Studio in Jan Juc says it is never too late to improve mobility and strength, and yoga is a great starting point. “If you don’t move it and use it, you lose it. “Yoga strengthens and lengthens your muscles, and by using muscles in that way, you increase blood flow through your tissues and organs and reduce the risks of osteoporosis and arthritis. “I’m surprised how much it can reverse ailments. “People tell me how good they feel in their bodies – one came to me with bad arthritis and it’s

Personal accounts from Eden Park

Eden Park

‘Quality Care Is Our Business’

Eden Park resident Liz Cowell gives an account of her life and about how she made the happy choice to move to the residential aged care centre in Geelong. BY LIZ COWELL AS A young girl growing up life was very normal. We lived at Balmoral and as a teenager moved to Beaufort. I became a sewer for many years, which lead onto my hobby in craft of many kinds. I married at the age of 20 and had three beautiful children. Two boys died as they suffered from cystic fibrosis. My daughter has married and I now have two lovely grandchildren. They are a terrific support. I lived at Townsend Gardens, St Albans Park where I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease by my Melbourne specialist. After two and a half years my Parkinson’s accelerated so within a short time my shakes got worse and I chose to move to Eden Park. Now that I live at Eden Park I’m really enjoying making many friends and really enjoy the support

from all the staff. I enjoy being involved with the activities Sue and Michelle have developed including craft of many kinds, bowls, bingo, walking, entertainment and many more. There is always something to be involved in. Arsh comes and does physiotherapy with me three times a week which I really look forward to and appreciate. And I cannot forget Tanya who takes an exercise class that caters for all the residents. We have a hairdressing salon, library and cinema. Management and staff are always there to help me. I was very hesitant about coming to Eden Park but I really question myself why I should have had those thoughts. In all honesty it certainly has been a good decision that I made. My life is a lot easier now with support always available. I just can’t thank everyone involved for their efforts with my care enough, especially the resident nurses.

Eden Park is a 90 bed first class facility located in tranquil surroundings, whilst in close proximity to shopping and public transport. Our mission is to deliver the highest standard of care and services that ensures optimum quality and enjoyment of life.

Everything you need located on site: Ageing in Place, Palliative care, Respite care Extensive lifestyle program and activiities. All meals prepared on site.

Tigers select team of the decade BY JAMES TAYLOR THE Torquay Tigers have chosen their best side from the first 10 years of the 21st century. The club held a past players day at Spring Creek Reserve during Saturday’s game against Queenscliff, where it announced its team of the decade for 20002009. Vice president Steve Grossman said the plan to draw up the team began in the middle of last year, with each of the six selectors submitting a side for review before a final side was decided upon. As in previous decades, players must have played for at least two years to be eligible. Mr Grossman said the ultimate side largely picked itself. “Out of those six sides, there was only a handful we had to discuss. “About 85 per cent of the sides had players picked

on their performance and in their preferred position.” He said outstanding players included centre-half forward Simon Geljon – who won consecutive best and fairest awards for the Tigers in 2002 and 2003 – and centre George Arnold, who won the 1998 Bellarine Football League best and fairest award as well as three club best and fairest awards. Ruck-rover Aldo Pettina was named as captain, while full-forward Adam Skrobalak was named as coach. Mr Grossman said Skrobalak was an easy choice as he coached Torquay to its only flag of the 10-year period, in 2006. “He was a very good coach. Though we only finished fifth that year, they got on a roll and went all the way.” As well as the celebration of some modern greats, Saturday saw the reunion of some of the Tigers’ 1983 reserve premiership side.

MY BIG CATCH WITH GARRY KERR

Tuesday 6 August 2013

LOCAL characters – every town has them and Torquay is no exception. People who go about their everyday lives but who by their mere presence can enrich our own lives. The following story is courtesy of Chris Mann. According to Chris, down at the Jan Juc Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC) there is a bit of a character, a Russian guy who is known at the club as a pretty good fisherman and diver. His name is Ivan Vassilivitch. Now Chris got talking to this guy after a recent surf fishing session at the beach when he saw Ivan just having come out the water after a successful session catching crays in front of the Jan Juc SLSC. Chris spoke to Ivan there. It seems Ivan emigrated to Australia when the wall came down and perestroika of the communist party took place. Ivan had always had a fishing background. He remembers well fishing for beluga, osetra and sevruga sturgeon species with his grandfather and uncles as a kid, as these species also produce the best varieties of caviar which fetch a handsome price. Ivan at the age of 16 joined the Russian Navy as a boy soldier and began clearance diving work at just 17! Naval clearance diving is risky at the best of times regardless of which navy you are in and requires a special breed of person to perform the duties required. Word around the club has it that he was in the navy for years but he is pretty quiet about his time in the navy. He is a good pal with some of the Juc clubbies who all reckon he’s hard as nails, especially as he dives all year round with no wetsuit – nothing, no hood, no wetty, just speedos! The paddlers say they sometimes

run into him on the bommies with just a mask and flippers! Chris asked him why he doesn’t wear a wettie, he responded: “wetsuit for pussycat, water here good, not cold”. The local boys reckon he can hold his breath for ages and he always seems to come up with big crays and is generous to a fault with his mates. Apparently Ivan’s family also lives locally and his grandchildren are his heroes as he is theirs. While Chris was at the Jan Juc SLSC last week Ivan had just came out of the water with two of the best looking local crayfish Chris claimed he had ever seen – they were about three kilograms each – caught just off Bird Rock at Juc. Ivan’s story is a classic and is part of what makes Australia great! With his Russian ushanka on his head, Ivan is a true character of the coast. Chris took this snap. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks Chris for your recommendation. MEANWHILE, last week a whale and its calf entered the bay at Anglesea and put on a display for locals and visitors alike. The cow came within 200 metres of the front beach allowing everyone to see her and her calf clearly. So it is whale season, keep your eyes open – you never know when you may be lucky enough to see them.

ANGLESEA GOLF CLUB IT WAS the week of the road trip with a dozen or so ladies heading north to Cobram-Barooga for the Victorian Ladies Foursomes Championships followed by the Country Championships and Glenelg Cup. Those that played in the foursomes had to play 36 holes on the Monday. Our luck was out on the Monday, but we did have some success in the Glenelg Cup with Jenny Inman finishing 10th out of 77 after two neat rounds of nett 76. In fact to play her second round on Wednesday Jenny had to delay her trip home. The Wednesday started late due to thick fog and with play only starting after lunch most of our ladies abandoned play. Not Jenny, she lasted the distance, along with Valda Connelly who finished 28th out of 97 in the Country Championships. Obviously late nights are good for Jenny as she won the monthly medal back in Anglesea on the Thursday. Last weekend we honoured a number of our long-standing members at the President’s and Captain’s Dinner. Photos are on the web and we congratulate Peter Thompson for 30 years, Daryl Crilly for 33 years, Nobby Forster for 40 years and Noel Newman for 50 years. Check out their swanky new golf bag tags next time you seem them.

grade. DJ Wylie won A grade with 38 points, Sam Benjamin won C grade with 35 points on a count back from John Butler, and Bernie Dalton won the seniors with 34 points. Thursday was monthly medal for the ladies and the best conditions for the week. In form Jenny Inman won the August medal and Division 3 with nett 75 and Ann Stokes won the playoff for the July medal and Division 1 with nett 76. Myrell McConachy won Division 2 with nett 78 on a count back from Jan Stewart. Dot Hermann won the putting competition with 30 putts, and the returning traveller, Judy Talbot, won the gross event with 90.

TORQUAY GOLF CLUB

FROM THE GOLF SHOP

It was a stableford round for the men on Wednesday in fine conditions. Best for the day was David Hitchcock with 40 points winning B

Saturday started cold and windy, and ended up cold, wet and windy. The early starters did manage to get in before the downpour and hail, but those that pulled out before starting were congratulating themselves on their decision. It was a medal day for the men and A grade winner Russell Murfitt was the winner with 36 points. Leon Czarnuch won B grade with 35 points, Tim Walker won C grade with 32 points and Dinah Kosky won the ladies with 29 points. With the overnight rain most decided that the course was better left alone on Sunday and we had no competition. Hopefully some drier weather this week will give us a more playable course! Enjoy your golf and stay warm and dry.

THIS week we start off with some news from the course, as of Monday 5 August there will be more changes to the layout and some new course rules, please ensure that you pick up the new maps and local rules sheets from the golf shop. The 11th will hole will now be closed and we will be playing another temporary par 3 on the front nine. In this week’s ladies results we see Cheryl Brunt back in form taking out A grade with 37 points. Noel Orwin was to take the win for B grade with 35 points and for D grade Judith Hobill put in a well-earned 30 points. NTPs Noel Orwin, Alita Dales, Sandra Martin and Cheryl Brunt. The jackpot win went to Alita Dales. The best 9 out score was Cheryl Brunt with 20 points a great effort off her ever decreasing handicap and the best 9 in Jenny Gleeson coming home with 17 points. Danny Willersdorf with 42 points took out the A grade honours this Wednesday. Peter Carey had 40 points to win B grade. Alan Foss with the best score of the day, 44 points, that was good enough to take out C grade and of course add to his ball prize, while for D grade Shayne Hope came home with 43 points. With 36 points Bill Brushfield won the seniors. NTPs Graeme Perks, Greg Baeck, Greg Miller, Ron Jones and Bill Brushfield. Ross Duff got an eagle on the 11th. Rod Papworth had a good day out scoring the

jackpot and a hole in one both of course on the same hole the 17th. If you are going to ever do it that is the hole to do it on he now has a lot of credit to use at the resort, we are guessing he will have to bring the family for dinner. Friday with only two ladies in the running as they were the only ones to finish, we congratulate Anne Staig, she took the lead with minus 2 and Ann Milligan got a ball well deserved we would say for staying out in the pouring rain to finish their round. Maurie Kayler-Thomson scored plus 4 to take out the men’s from Herb Hertaeg on count back. NTPs David Norman and Bob Hayles. Paul Brunt scored the jackpot once again and Maurie Kayler-Thomson shot an eagle on the 10th capping off a good day for him. Only the ladies field managed to finish on Saturday before the rain stopped play, congratulations to Heather Dixon taking out this Month’s Medal with 71 nett. NTP Ronnie Beacom. Sunday very few ventured out on the course although the conditions were quite friendly the forecasted rain kept most away so we had a mixed Stableford competition and with 39 points Ted Fitzpatrick took the honors. NTPs David Rae and Ted Fitzpartick. Dave McPhail won the jackpot. As Saturday’s men’s competition was called off due to the greens being under water Monthly Medal will be played this Saturday 10 August.
