RIGHT SWING Henderson triumphs in Corangamite as Coalition wins federal election

BY JAMES TAYLOR SARAH Henderson says she will be guided by integrity and compassion as she prepares to become the federal member for Corangamite under a Coalition government. The Liberal candidate defeated Labor’s Darren Cheeseman at her second attempt to win the seat, coming to power with a 4.14 per cent swing in the two-party-preferred vote. She said she was very proud and honoured to be elected on Saturday, and she would provide effective and proactive representation to the electorate. “The contribution of my family, friends, campaign team and loyal volunteers, as well as local residents across the electorate is overwhelming. “I would not have reached this point without their support.” Ms Henderson said the Coalition’s $25 million pledge towards upgrading the Great Ocean Road had helped sway coastal voters to the Liberals, with 10 per cent swings in towns such

as Lorne and Apollo Bay. Her other election pledges total more than $6.7 million, including $3.5 million for the Shell Road sports pavilion in Ocean Grove, $300,000 for the Surf Coast Solar Towns project and $200,000 for lights at Burdoo Reserve in Grovedale. Prime Minister-elect Tony Abbott has already started his plans to repeal the carbon tax, and Ms Henderson said that was “the first order of business”. “There are certainly challenges facing our region. I’m ready to tackle these issues head on to help build a better, stronger region. “The Abbott-led government has a plan for real change, and we will deliver on it.” She congratulated Mr Cheeseman for his contribution to the community throughout his term in office. In Corio, Labor’s Richard Marles has held his seat, despite enduring a 5.5 per cent swing against him. The outgoing minister for trade received 58 per cent of the two-party-preferred vote ahead

of Liberal candidate Peter Read. Mr Marles previously held the electorate by a comfortable 13 per cent but suffered swings to the Liberals, and Palmer United Party candidate Tony Harrington as Labor MPs across Australia were swept from office. Former prime minister Kevin Rudd stepped down as Labor leader in the wake of the election defeat, and it is not yet clear who will lead the party in opposition. As of noon yesterday, none of the 150 seats in the House of Representatives had been declared, but the Coalition looks to have won 86 seats to Labor’s 57. Adam Bandt from The Greens, independent Andrew Wilkie and Katter’s Australia Party leader Bob Katter all held their seats. The Australian Electoral Commission website lists six seats as “close” – where the two-partypreferred vote is between 49.5 per cent and 50.5 per cent – and another four seats where a leader, as yet, cannot be determined.

for long periods • empty children’s wading pools if not being used regularly • keep fishponds stocked with fish.

Mosquito treatments have begun Our aerial mosquito treatments have commenced in a bid to keep levels under control for the coming spring and summer. The first treatments of the year have taken place over the last couple of weeks around Barwon Heads, Breamlea, Ocean Grove and Wallington. Mosquito larvae levels had been found at moderate to high levels in these areas. The treatments particularly focused on breeding sites around Lake Connewarre and Breamlea. The mosquito control products used in aerial treatments are Bacillus thuringiensis isralensis and s-Methoprene. It’s important to note that these products only affect mosquito larvae and do not harm people, pets and the general environment. Both products are nationally approved by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority for mosquito treatment. While it is impossible to completely eliminate mosquitoes from our environment, our mosquito management program provides a safe and effective way to keep the numbers down. Treatments will most likely continue through to March 2014. We encourage residents to help keep numbers down by getting rid of any potential breeding sites in your backyard, such as pools of water in pots, tyres or buckets. Other ways to reduce the number of mosquitoes in your house and yard include: • install flywire screens on all windows and self-closing wire screens on doors. Check them regularly and mend any holes • change pets’ drinking water and the water in vases, pot plants and bird baths regularly • put sand around the base of pot plants to absorb excess water in the dish • keep swimming pools chlorinated or salted and empty them completely when not in use

Masters Games – enter now

This month the City of Greater Geelong will be mailing out tip vouchers worth $18.50 to all Geelong householders. Council has decided to mail out the vouchers separately to rates notices, so all householders can receive this council initiative. For the added convenience tip vouchers can now be used for the disposal of tyres. In Geelong, tyres are the most commonly dumped item and this voucher will help promote recycling in our community. In addition, mattresses have also been included as an item to be used with the tip voucher. This means you can recycle your old mattress for just $2, as the current recycling fee of a mattress is $20.50. A load of your unwanted goods can be dropped off at the Geelong Resource Recovery Centres which are located in Becks Road, Drysdale and Douro Street, North Geelong. The vouchers also have a helpful guide of free waste options in Geelong. You’ll find the best places to go to dispose of whitegoods, TV’s, computer equipment, paint, polystyrene and excess household recycling. Please note vouchers apply to residential properties and can only be used once. They cannot be exchanged for cash and can’t be used as a form of payment for other council services and charges. Vouchers exclude the disposal of asbestos, chemicals, liquid or hazardous waste. More information about waste and recycling can be found on our website, geelongaustralia.

There is less than one month to go until the 14th Australian Masters Games, but there is still time to enter! I am looking forward to participating in the Road Cycling event – I know it’s going to be a very competitive field! My fellow councillors Eddy and Stretch Kontelj are competing in the running while Cr Irvine and Cr Nelson will be playing cricket. It’s such a great event to be a part of; not only is it a rewarding personal achievement, it’s just a lot of fun! There is some impressive entertainment lined up and I know the social activities will once again be a highlight. In fact the games are as much a social event as they are a sporting event. Some sports are starting to fill to capacity so get your entries in promptly to have a go at anything from running, jumping or throwing to dancing, sailing or paddling. It doesn’t matter what your skill level is, the Masters Games are about participation and personal rewards. The City of Greater Geelong is proud to support this event as it presents a great opportunity to showcase our region to visiting participants, while encouraging residents to get active and involved in an exciting event in their own community.

Barwon Heads Community Bank celebrates BY DEAN WEBSTER LAST Friday, the Barwon Heads community celebrated the first year milestone of their community bank and were joined by actor and unicyclist fundraiser Samuel Johnson who helped cut the cake. Mr Johnson was in Barwon Heads as part of his “Love your sister” ride, during which he is circumnavigating Australia on a unicycle to raise money for breast cancer research. Barwon Heads Bendigo Community Bank board chair Heather McCarthy is very proud of what they have achieved since opening on September 6 last year. “When we were in the planning stages 35 million dollars was the minimum business capital required to be profitable, and now due to changes in the financial climate, $65 million is the target required and we are well on the way to achieve that this year,” she said. “Our bank was the 296th community bank to open and we are proud to be part of the Bendigo Community Bank family that has invested over $100 million back into their communities.”

Bendigo Bank regional manager Pat Murnane said that the community of Barwon Heads has really embraced the new branch, where Kim Ferry and her team are providing both exceptional customer service and a wonderful customer experience. “I offer my thanks and congratulations to Heather and all her board who have done an amazing job, firstly to establish the business and now during their first 12 months achieve outstanding business results. “The ultimate winners will be the Barwon Heads community, who will be the beneficiaries of the profits from the banking business of the branch, which is what the bank’s community banking model is all about,” Mr Murnane said. Branch manager Kim Ferry said the branch had received fantastic support from the Barwon Heads community and the banks shareholders. “Our strong financial performance has allowed us to contribute approximately $25,000 into our local community by way of sponsorships and donations,” Ms Ferry said. “Our anticipated growth will allow us to support our community more and more in years to come.”

Terrace town house and shop development progress BY JESSICA GRACE THREE new shops and four town houses in Ocean Grove’s main street are finally under way with works commencing on 78 The Terrace. Ocean Grove consultant Mike Higgins from MHBD said his company is evaluating and locating existing Telstra and Powercor assets within the site. “The preliminary phases of construction are under way. Concrete tile panel walls and structural

steel fabrication is happening,” Mr Higgins said. “We will be installing pre-slab plumbing and strip footings over the next week or so. Within a few weeks I would expect to see the building forms starting to progress.” RT Edgar director Ian Friend said it’s taken a long time for things to happen, with the site experiencing a few hiccoughs along the way. “The power and water companies had to realign all the lines for the site. Ocean Grove main street wasn’t

really designed for construction,” Mr Friend said. “There are four apartments consisting of two and three bedrooms, three are two stories and all of them have fantastic expansive views of the sea. There is a communal lift to the first floor and then each tenant can access their own apartment.” Mr Friend said parking is underground and the site has garnered interest but delays have dampened potential buyer’s enthusiasm. “They’re hanging in there but are unsure whether

to wait or not. We’ve had interest for the shops to rent and also for the units but we’re just waiting for documentation to be able to give to prospective buyers/renters,” Mr Friend said. “The community response has been good. It’s been a quite a long time since a new shop development has happened down the main street and people like to see a bit of activity. Ocean Grove is pretty strong in the shopping area, it just adds to the variety by introducing a few more shops.”

BY JAMES TAYLOR INCUMBENT Corangamite federal MP Darren Cheeseman has conceded the election to Liberal candidate Sarah Henderson, and said he was proud of his record of achievements. The Labor member held Corangamite by only 0.3 per cent at the 2010 election, and both he and his opponent were active across the electorate as they tried to persuade undecided voters in the lead-up to Saturday’s poll. In a statement to the Bellarine Times, Mr Cheeseman congratulated Ms Henderson on a good campaign. “I am proud of everything I achieved as the federal member for our area for the last six years. “In that time we have built a new building in every local school, completed the ring road and (worked) to duplicate the Princes Highway. “Locally for the Surf Coast we have invested in the sports facilities at Banyul-Warri Fields, helped the Torquay Tigers stand and invested in local family services.” As of yesterday morning, Greens candidate Lloyd Davies looks to have taken third place in Corangamite, with 11.81 per cent of first preferences (or 8,852 votes). Buddy Rojek, who was listed on the ballot paper for the Palmer United Party but was disendorsed and campaigned as an independent, is a distant fourth with 2.2 per cent (or 1,652 votes). Mr Rojek was the clear favourite for people looking to support minor parties, with six of the 12 candidates receiving less than 500 first preference votes. Nick Steel from the Australian Protectionist Party failed to make much of an impression, only receiving 106 votes in the first round. Corangamite’s voters largely followed the rules at the election, with almost 96 per cent of the 78,114 ballots counted as formal votes. The total number of ballots does not include postal, absent, provisional and any remaining pre-poll votes.

Darren Cheeseman hands out a how-to-vote card on election day at Grovedale Uniting Church.

Swing falls short for Read BY JAMES TAYLOR A BIG swing towards Liberal candidate Peter Read was not enough for him to secure victory in the seat of Corio at the election. Labor MP Richard Marles held the seat by about 14 per cent but Mr Read polled strongly on Saturday, pulling in nearly 35 per cent of the first preference vote – a 2.9 per cent improvement on the last poll – and 42 per cent of the two-party preferred vote. Mr Read may have suffered from a lack of electorate-specific spending promises, compared to more than $4 million of pledges from Mr Marles. On first preferences, Labor and The Greens

suffered swings of 7 per cent and 5.2 per cent respectively in Corio. Despite the swing, Greens contender Greg Lacey is likely to finish in third place, with 7.15 per cent of first preferences (or 5,302 votes). Palmer United Party candidate Anthony Harrington made a strong showing in his first election, receiving 5.9 per cent of first preferences (or 4,394 votes). Family First candidate Brendan Fenn was less popular, suffering a 2 per cent swing to finish with 1.6 per cent of first preferences. As of yesterday morning, 77.2 per cent of votes in Corio had been counted. Of the 78,048 ballots counted, nearly 95 per cent were recorded as formal votes.

Golfers take to Port with sticks VOTES for the federal election were still being counted on Sunday when the last balls were rolling into the cups at the Portarlington Carnival of Golf. Across nine days and 13 competitions, over 1,000 golfers enjoyed Portarlington Golf Club’s immaculate fairways and varied holes. Club chief executive officer Ron Stockdale said the event was

highly successful. “The event was well supported and patronised by people over the state and interstate, the fields were very strong and the weather great. “All in all it was a very successful event.” Mr Stockdale said 1,148 players graced the course’s fairways and similar numbers would be expected next year.

“It will be an ongoing event next without a shadow of doubt.” Mr Stockdale thanked the carnival’s sponsors – of which the Bellarine Times was one – and volunteers for their efforts. An official notice thanking all the tournament sponsors will be published next week. For more carnival coverage see pages 87 and 90.

Olive oil makers bring gold to the table BY TIFFANY PILCHER THE Bellarine Peninsula is fast being put on the map for its quality olive oil production after a number of local makers brought home prestigious awards last week. Three local producers, Mason’s Creek Olive Grove, Manzanillo Grove and Lighthouse Extra Virgin Olive Oil were awarded medals at this year’s Royal Melbourne Fine Food awards. Mason’s Creek Olive Grove won gold in the robust oil category and

silver in the delicate oil category. This is their first gold medal and owner Rosalind Ellinger said it was worth the hard work. “We handpick our olives and they’re all dry grown as we don’t irrigate. “It produces a smaller crop but I believe the effort shows in the flavours so it’s lovely to hear others think so also.” Manzanillo Grove also took out gold for their signature Manzanillo olive oil and silver for their table fruit.

Owner Renate Kint said it has taken years to perfect their blends so they’re thrilled to receive recognition for their hard work. “It’s taken a lot of time and effort and they can be difficult to press but we tweaked everything until it was just right,” she said. “Being judged against other producers from all over Australia, including the big companies like Aldi and Woolworths and walking away with a win is really great outcome.”

Entries open for Grove art show BY JESSICA GRACE ENTRIES are now open for the Ocean Grove Rotary Annual Art Show with sale proceeds going to Disabled Surfers’ Association and Riding Develops Abilities. Carol Barker said the show, in its third year, attracts entries Australia wide from Sydney to Gippsland with artist Ted Dansey this year’s guest judge. “Mr Dansey is a renowned watercolour artist

winner of the Victorian Art’s Society Artist of the Year Award in 2007 and made a Fellow of the Society in 2011,” Ms Barker said. “The art show has three major categories, painting, drawing and print making. There’s a prize pool of over $9,000 and entries close September 30.” Ms Barker said the show takes 400 entries and they’ve already begun receiving pieces from various artists. “The show’s official opening is November 1 for artists and guests and prize winners will be

announced. We also have the people’s choice award so people can vote for their favourite piece.” “The art will then be on public display November 2-3 at Point Lonsdale Primary School Hall, in the past we’ve attracted between 200-300 people per day. “People continually comment on the high standard of our art show, we have quite a high entry fee which encourages good art and ensures high standard entries.” Ms Barker said this will be the third year they’ve donated to the Disabled Surfers’ Association and

Riding Develops Abilities. “Last year we donated $17,000. We chose these two charities because they’re run solely by volunteers. They don’t have any paid workers. “It gives people with a disability a chance to do something they couldn’t do normally and we’re hoping once again to raise much needed funds for them.” Visit rotaryoceangrove.org.au for entry forms.

Jirrahlinga owner Tehree Gordon said the Alcoa volunteer’s assistance has reinvigorated the park. “We’re going through a tough time like a lot of businesses and to have extra sets of hands working beside us, laughing and chatting has given everyone a huge morale boost. “I’m on crutches and I wanted to throw them in the air I was so happy.” Ms Gordon said the assistance couldn’t come at a

better time with cleanup tasks mounting after a long and difficult winter. “Now we’re coming in with huge smiles on our faces, it’s made such a difference and we’re so grateful,” she said. Volunteers were also on hand on Thursday at the Portarlington Primary School to help staff and students improve play areas. Together they planted drought resistant plants, beautifying garden beds, spreading soft fall under play equipment and refurbishing the picnic and basketball court area. “A fun, safe and clean play area is essential for all of our schools and we are proud to be involved in improving the play environment for the kids at Portarlington Primary School” said Alcoa community relations officer Kate Betts. Both projects were facilitated by Karingal Inc through its BacLinks initiative.

Alcoa employees (L-R) Glenn Reed, Flavio Glurco, Steve Hubers, Barry Knight and Michael Hoskings volunteered to assist Jirrahlinga Koala and Wildlife Sanctuary and Portarlington Primary School with vital maintenance tasks last week.

Amy’s Gran Fondo is ready to roll Motoring Enthusiasts

may win the Senate race

BY JAMES TAYLOR ENTRIES have closed for Amy’s Gran Fondo, and cyclists are in the final stages of preparation for Sunday’s ride. Nearly 4,000 cyclists took part in last year’s ride along the fully closed course along the Great Ocean Road and Otway Ranges. Organisers have set a fundraising target of $150,000, and nearly $43,000 had been raised as of last week. Cyclists will have three rides to choose from in the third running of the event, which honours the life of Australian cyclist Amy Gillett. The 110 kilometre Gran Fondo is a UCI World Cycling Tour qualifier event and has gradients of up to 12 per cent. It begins at Lorne and is relatively flat until Skenes Creek, where the course takes an uphill twist and turn towards Skenes Creek North. From there, cyclists move up and down past Devils Elbow, Barramunga and Forrest before another flat section between Barwon Downs and Deans Marsh. Riders then head uphill again towards Benwerrin and the final downhill section back into Lorne. More than $20,000 in prize money will be up for grabs for the fastest three male and three female riders in each of the nine age categories, the fastest three teams in the teams competition, and the male and female outright winners of the King of the Mountain. Cyclists who are new to big rides or who have an average speed of more than 18 kilometres per hour for a 110 kilometre course with 1,200 metres vertical ascent will be taking on the 40 kilometre Medio Fondo between Lorne and Skenes Creek. Families and community riders will take part in the 14 kilometre Piccolo Fondo, which runs from Lorne to the Cumberland River lookout and back. There will be a series of rolling road closures along the Gran Fondo course between 7am and 3pm on September 15. For more information, head to amysgranfondo. org.au.

THE Australian Motoring Enthusiasts Party (AMEP) looks to be the big surprise of the Victorian Senate race in the federal election. The final vote count will not be finalised for days, but about 62 per cent of the vote had been counted for the six seats up for grabs in Victoria. As of yesterday morning, AMEP’s Ricky Muir appears to have won the sixth and final seat. His party received 0.52 per cent of the vote in the first round but a flow of preferences has pushed Mr Muir ahead of third Liberal/National Coalition candidate Helen Kroger. AMEP has a long list of policies on vehicles, driving and roads but limited information relating to environment, education and health. According to its website, the party “seeks to preserve Australian family values, the Motoring Enthusiast lifestyle; while encouraging a sense of community and personal responsibility”. The ALP and the Coalition held three seats each before the election, and four of the six incumbents were the first four to be elected. Coalition candidate Mitch Fifield was the first person elected, with nearly 40 per cent of the vote at the first count. Gavin Marshall from the ALP was elected second, followed by the Coalition’s Scott Ryan and the ALP’s Jacinta Collins. The Greens were the next most popular party, but it was not until the 33rd count that lead candidate Janet Rice achieved the necessary number of votes. AMEP was initially behind after Ms Rice was elected, but preferences from the minor parties in following rounds saw the party pull ahead. As of yesterday morning, neither of the major parties had the 39 seats necessary to have a majority in the Senate, with eight senators from minor parties likely to hold the balance of power.

BY JAMES TAYLOR THE hotel and health and wellbeing centre have been struck off the revised plans for the Apollo Bay harbour precinct. Last month, Colac Otway Shire revealed it had a new master plan for the bay, which has been altered in response to community feedback. Shire mayor Lyn Russell said starting a planning scheme amendment process would ensure there was a planning framework in place to guide the future development of the harbour. She said the amendment would also prohibit the use of land at the harbour for accommodation, unless another amendment was carried out. The revised plan features: • an upgraded entry road to improve safety • improved road treatments, pedestrian

and cycle paths • an expanded fisherman’s co-operative building • small harbourside commercial and community buildings, and boardwalk • a recreational marina on the eastern breakwater • upgraded boat ramp and tailer parking • a relocated port operations yard • new sailing club • Aboriginal cultural centre • a floating commercial site • an extended eastern breakwater, and • a formalised car park at Mother’s Beach. Cr Russell said the council was excited to show the updated plans to the community. “The plan outlines a precinct with a tourism, fishing, boating, commercial and recreational focus. “With improved links between the harbour and

Apollo Bay’s central shopping area, we believe the new vision for the harbour will provide enjoyable experiences for residents and visitors all year round.” The council will request state government approval to exhibit the amendment this month, and will finalise the specific planning controls for the harbour precinct during the next few weeks. Cr Russell said development of the precinct was dependent on state or federal government funding. The state government has contributed $265,000 to the harbour project so far, with a further $255,000 committed for the planning scheme amendment process. G21 Geelong Region Alliance rates upgrading the harbour as one of its priority projects, and is seeking a combined $10.6 million from the state and federal governments.

Jarrod Lyle on course for golfing comeback BY TIFFANY PILCHER GOLFER Jarrod Lyle is preparing for his professional return to the sport after beating Leukaemia for the second time this year. Lyle was back on his home course at The Sands last week for his first consecutive four rounds since the illness returned in March last year. The Professional Golfers Association (PGA) tour player completed the fourth round on Thursday in preparation for the 2013 Australian Masters tournament in Melbourne in November and said he’s well on his way back to top form. “I’m at about 70 per cent right now but every day

I play it gets better. “Those bad shots I’m hitting from being out of practice are starting to disappear.” The comeback is significant for Lyle who endured several rounds of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, bone marrow transplants and months in remission to overcome the cancer which first affected him when he was only 17. “I’m excited to be back, I have been playing a lot but not seriously so this will really feel like a return for me. “My health has been ok so I wanted to get out here as quickly as possible, it’s good to be back doing what I love.”

Torquay golfer Jarrod Lyle began preparing for his return to professional competition at The Sands last week.

Golf day proves a hit for St Therese dads BY JAMES TAYLOR PARENTS at St Therese Catholic Primary School teed off at The Sands on Friday to help raise funds for their children. A full field of 72 players took part in the inaugural St Therese Golf Classic, with fathers and sponsors playing a round at the Torquay course, followed by lunch, raffles and an auction. Mothers from St Therese have held several gatherings at The Sands, but Friday’s competition was the first official men’s event. Speaking to the Surf Coast Times on Friday after the conclusion of play, organiser Stephen Dean said he hoped the event could raise between $5,000$8,000. He said all of the 14 sponsors were fathers of pupils at the school, so it was good to be able to keep the fundraising in-house. “It was just a great chance to get all the guys

together; everyone can make time to play golf.” Sponsors who played on the day included Torquay Bulk Billing, Skilled Homes, S3 Staffing Solutions, Adroit Insurance, Ivy Street Advertising, Champion Blinds, Narellan Pools, Bell Potter Securities, Coast Scaffolding, Norris Plant Hire, All Seasons Patios, and Front Beach Café. Mr Dean said the conditions were perfect for golf. “I think the standard of play was pretty good, there were a lot of shouts heard around the course.” All money raised on the day will be given to the school’s parents and friends group, which will then donate it back to the school to purchase extra resources. Mr Dean said previous fundraising efforts had gone towards iPads for classrooms and constructing a netball court for the younger pupils. “It’ll go towards the things that are over and above what’s in the usual budget.”

More recycling programs to raise awareness THE state government’s rollout of recycling initiatives across Victoria continues with the opening of a $1 million grants program. Through the Regional Public Place Recycling Grants, regional councils, waste management groups and managers of public land can apply from between $15,000-$100,000 to install recycling bins and raise community awareness of the benefits of recycling. Minister for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith said the grants would build on the success of funding rounds of previous years,

which have helped drive reductions in littering and improvements in recycling rates. The grants program is the latest in the state government’s campaign to boost recycling rates and tackle littering, and follows the August launch of the Get it Right on Bin Night regional campaign. “Victoria is known for its beautiful towns, parks and public spaces and the Coalition government wants to keep it that way,” Mr Smith said. “Accessible and well maintained rubbish and

recycling bins contribute towards litter prevention and make it easier for people to do the right thing by recycling. “The 2013 Regional Public Place Recycling Grants will help install new recycling bins and other infrastructure for people to dispose of waste when they are out and about, reducing unsightly litter and creating a safer and healthier environment for all Victorians.” “I am delighted that more and more Victorians are doing their bit to tackle litter and this has been borne out by the latest Keep Australia Beautiful

Network National Litter Index, which shows that for the second year in a row Victoria is the best performing state when it comes to reducing litter.” The state government has set a target for a 25 per cent improvement in littering behaviours by 2014, from 2003 levels. Applications for the 2013 Regional Public Place Recycling Grants close 2pm on October 18.

Achieving your retirement goals WITH DAMIAN MCVILLY, PRINCIPAL, FINANCIAL ADVICE, CROWE HORWATH TORQUAY OFFICE

Women in Business

STRATEGIC advice is important in helping clients achieve their financial goals when they’re transitioning into retirement. Clients need to consider a number of questions like will you have enough superannuation to retire comfortably? Do you have a clear investment strategy that works for you? Do you have adequate insurance in case there is an accident or illness affecting your ability to work? Have you set up a clear estate plan so your assets are passed onto the people you care about?

Crowe Horwath Torquay can off advice on how to best save for your retirement.

Investing to prepare for your retirement Understand what you are investing in and why. Simple portfolios that consist of quality shares both domestic and international, real estate, infrastructure, term deposits and cash are usually adequate in building and maintain your wealth for retirement. You don’t need exotic financial investments that are often expensive to buy and manage and are misunderstood and carry unknown risk. Undoubtedly the biggest question that most people approaching, or in retirement, ask these days is whether they have enough to do the things they want to do and how long their savings will last. If you’re in this position, seek advice from an adviser to assist you in answering those questions.

financial pressures should an unforeseen event take place. Also set up your estate plan in advance. Set up the correct structures and have documentation in place so key people in your family can make the best decisions and make sure your wealth is passed onto your beneficiaries at the right time and the most tax effective way. Aim to leave it to your spouse, your children, your grandchildren, and your extended family or to a charity and not to the Australian Tax Office, your former spouse or to lawyers. My door is open and I hope you will pop in to 16 Gilbert Street for a free consultation to discuss your current and future financial position and how I can help you.

Your First Monthly Event is FREE

Planning ahead – insurance and estate plans Australians are notoriously under insured – a wellstructured personal risk insurance plan, set up in advance of any unfortunate event, will provide peace of mind for you and your family and relieve

Choose a new career with care BY JAMES TAYLOR NATIONAL Skills Week is over, but the care and support industry says any time is a good time to start a career in disability. The Community Services and Health Industry Skills Council (CS&HISC) has encouraged people to consider disability work. The industry is of particular importance to the Geelong region, with one of the five DisabilityCare Australia trial sites as well as the scheme’s headquarters located here. CS&HISC chief executive officer Rod Cooke said National Skills Week was traditionally a time when people considered the careers a VET qualification could unlock. “But we believe you don’t need to look further than the community services and health industry – and in particular, working to support people with a disability. “Government figures released last month show Australia will need 90,000 new disability care and support workers over the next seven years.” He said the industry was never going to run out of resources. “There will always be people in need of care from quality trained, qualified workers. “Having a VET qualification puts you ahead of the pack. “Anecdotal evidence suggests that a Certificate III or IV in Disability Services is an advantage for any potential candidate.” There are about 800,000 VET-qualified or equivalent workers throughout Australia, and CS&HISC believes about 60 per cent are likely to retire in the next 10 years. “We believe an overwhelming proportion of the disability care services workforce will need to be VETqualified,” Mr Cooke said. For more information, head to cshisc.com.au or carecareers.com.au.

Grove pupils love Anglesea camp BY JESSICA GRACE GRADE 3 pupils from Ocean Grove Primary School experienced their first camp recently staying overnight at Coastal Forest Lodge in Anglesea. Teacher Kerryn Skuza said the two day camp saw students participate in on-site activities including a low ropes course, building bush shelters and cooking over an open fire. “They also experienced yabbying and a photo trail that assisted the students with familiarising themselves with the camp. There were 62 students and six teachers,” Ms Skuza said. “We all walked through the bush to find an eagle’s nest and danced the night away to Ken Hook’s bush showdown.” Ms Skuza said the camp is part of a program beginning with a one night sleep over for

students in grade two. “This camp helps build independence, appreciation of the outdoors, co-operation between different groups and learning new skills,” Ms Skuza said.

Grants for animal welfare extended to organisations across the state NOT-for-profit and non-government organisations improving the welfare of animals on the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula are encouraged to apply for grants under the second round of the Animal Welfare Fund. Small grants of up to $10,000 and large grants of up to $50,000 are available from the state government for projects such as reuniting pets with their owners, finding new homes for pets, and providing education on the responsible ownership of pets. The fund is a $1.6 million grants program providing financial support each year, over four years. Eligible projects include:

• community education programs on responsible ownership of companion animals • animal relief services and use of facilities to the community during an emergency • improvement in the rates of reuniting companion animals to their owners and rehoming of companion animals • facilities to promote dog exercising in parks and socialisation classes for dogs. Member for Western Victoria David Koch said the fund was designed to support organisations and help them continue their work. “The deadline for grant applications has been extended to September 30, which gives those

groups the best opportunity to apply.” He said the first round of the Animal Welfare Grants provided more than $350,000 to organisations across the state. “First round recipients included the Victorian Dog Rescue and Resource Group for infrastructure works, an education program for foster carers, and the subsidised de-sexing of companion animals in rural areas. “Projects like these are exactly what the state government wants to encourage through the Animal Welfare Fund, to ensure the wellbeing of our state’s pets.” Head to depi.vic.gov.au/ animalwelfaregrants for more information.

Council launches an aerial attack on the pesky mosquito BY DEAN WEBSTER THE City of Greater Geelong (COGG) has commenced aerial mosquito treatments in a bid to keep levels under control for the coming spring and summer. Treatments took place recently around Barwon Heads, Breamlea, Ocean Grove and Wallington where mosquito larvae levels had been found at moderate to high levels in these areas. The treatments particularly focused on breeding sites around Lake Connewarre and Breamlea. Connewarre resident Des King is pleased council are taking a proactive response to the mosquito problem. “We are very supportive of the council’s mozzie reduction program over the last few years. “When we first came here the mozzie problem was significant but since the aerial treatments have been taking place we have noticed a decline in mozzie numbers.” Council says that the mosquito control products

used in aerial treatments are Bacillus thuringiensis isralensis and s-Methoprene and that these products only affect mosquito larvae and do not harm people, pets and the general environment. Both products are nationally approved by the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority for mosquito treatment and the products have limited residual properties and do not magnify in the food chain. Environment portfolio holder Cr Andy Richards said COGG was proactive in ensuring mosquito levels were controlled as much as possible. “While it is impossible to completely eradicate mosquitos in our region, our mosquito management program provides a safe and effective way to keep the numbers down,” he said. “Our mosquito treatment program usually begins around August and will continue through to about March next year. We encourage residents to help keep numbers down by getting rid of any potential breeding sites in your backyard, such as pools of water in pots, tyres or buckets,” said Cr Richards.

Dear Editor, Freedom of speech and expression are pillars of a robust democracy, but sometimes the boundaries are crossed. For evidence, look no further than Surf Coast Shire (Torquay ward) councillor Eve Fisher’s social media commentary. Councillor Fisher is aligned with the Greens and obviously ideological opposed to Tony Abbott, but labelling anyone who supports him a “f***ing moron” is simply unsatisfactory in her position. Furthermore, uploading pictures calling Tony Abbott and Kevin Rudd “slunts” (a merger of two very derogatory words) and suggesting both men are nothing more than s***, leads one to question her integrity and maturity for the job. The Greens have been very vocal in their desire to raise the standard of political debate in Australia, to which I agree. Game playing, name calling and abuses of power have marred the three tiers of government. Good politics requires a level-head pragmatism and compromise (particularly at local government level). Name calling and online abuse is petty and childish but more importantly borders on bullying. Councillor Fisher should set an example of “what to do”, not “what not to do”. Samuel Torquay

Parkland for Ocean Grove Dear Editor, I read with interest the proposed sell off of Asbury Street netball court park and club rooms for residential housing. When is councillor Jane Farrell going to research the amount of parkland we should have in Ocean Grove? These problems are well documented. We fought for Ocean Grove Park Inc, not the council, over the same principle of preserving open space. We have a long history of being outwitted when it comes to public open space. The baby health centre and the 50 metre pool are two examples. This town may be easy going but there is a time to say enough is enough. The council needs to stop taking park land and needs to give thought on how to keep the town a nice place to bring up children, not, like one council report said, to have the beach as your parkland and that’s enough.

Council consultation questions Dear Editor, At Geelong Council’s meeting on Tuesday 27 August questions were asked about the land of the previous netball courts in Asbury Street Ocean Grove. Has Ocean Grove been consulted on the areas future use – at the community association, for example? Wouldn’t this central site be suited to

community purposes? Was there perhaps a covenant on the land restricting its use? Councillor Jan Farrell replied she did not know. This is very surprising, since the planning manager presented a report to council to rezone to residential and the sale of “land no longer required for recreational purposes.” Council would not consult if there is a covenant, since so long as there are no objectors, it can be removed, and while if anyone objects, it can’t.

Council plan performance Dear Editor, The article “Surf Coast Shire wraps up four-year plan” (September 3) noted the wrap up of the Surf Coast Shire Council Plan 2009-13 and found only 16 of the 28 key performance indicators (KPIs) had been met. In defence of this poor performance, Cr Brian McKiterick was quoted as saying the plan is more of a vision thing than delivery. Recently the council launched the 2013-2017 council plan with much fanfare and a large two page spread in local papers. In the introduction to the current plan, the mayor, Cr Libby Coker, says “this document describes the strategic goals we have set for ourselves during the four year life of this council”. On some of the detail, in developing the current plan the council said it consulted widely and made many changes as a result of public consultation and feedback. Well, if you call correcting several typos and some poor grammar; making a number of formatting changes and the inclusion of only one additional strategy (a good one no doubt about undertaking planning for future hockey facilities); one new measure about community leadership; and another about counting the number of day trippers to the coast as a valuable exercise in community consultation, then I can’t wait to see the results! I wonder who will be being quoted about the performance of this council’s performance in four years time? Laurie Cuttiford Jan Juc

Reluctant goodbye Dear Editor, It is with some regret that we note the resignation of the Bellarine Bayside chief executive officer (“Bellarine Bayside CEO stepping down”, Bellarine Times, August 27) following on little more than two years after the resignations of the previous chief executive officer, several senior staff members and also several members of the management committee. This latest resignation can only add to the level of dysfunction within this organisation and certainly does nothing to further the interests of the local community or to overcome the considerable difficulties facing the environment of the northern Bellarine Peninsula after so many years of neglect

and poor decision-making. A petition signed by more than 1,600 people was presented to the Victorian Parliament in 2010 calling for the replacement of Bellarine Bayside, and these latest events confirm the urgent need for this change to happen. If local municipal government were to take over the management of this area, we would see the interests of local residents and ratepayers given greater consideration, rather than as stated by the Bellarine Bayside chairperson at the last two AGM’s “we will continue to give priority to the caravan parks, because that is where our income comes from”. Take a visit to our nearest neighbourhood foreshores at Queenscliff or along the Mornington Peninsula, or even areas managed by the City of Greater Geelong such as at Clifton Springs. Any visitor can see the obvious advantage of better management through input from those municipal councils representing local ratepayers, not to mention the civic pride shown in the whole of the local area including the foreshores, rather than just concentration on caravan park management.

GOR upgrade backslapping Dear Editor, The Great Ocean Road is one of Australia’s most scenic tourist attractions and brings visitors from across the globe to Victoria’s breath-taking west coast. This iconic road needs upgrading to improve safety for all road users. Essentially, the Great Ocean Road should be well maintained for everyday users. The Victorian Coalition government recognises the national significance of the Great Ocean Road and supports the federal Coalition’s commitment with provision of an additional $25 million over five years for its upgrade. This commitment, not only promised by the Victorian government, but will see federal Coalition support with a total joint investment of $50 million over a five year period to undertake the necessary road works to ensure greater safety from end to end. National importance recognition means this road will continue to be an important drawcard for the many hundreds of thousands of tourists who visit the Great Ocean Road annually. This joint commitment will deliver significant upgrades including maintenance of bridges, retaining walls, and road resurfacing works. I congratulate both the state Roads Minister Terry Mulder and Corangamite candidate Sarah Henderson for pursuing this important direct support for tourism and small business in south-western Victoria with improvements that will ensure that the Great Ocean Road continues being the famous gateway to the Surf Coast. Importantly, the state and federal Coalition’s commitment will ensure the Great Ocean Road is safer as traffic volumes continue to increase. David Koch Member for Western Victoria Region

Commissioner praises speed camera system VICTORIA’S speed camera system has been rated excellent by the independent road safety camera commissioner. Minister for Police and Emergency Services Kim Wells welcomed Gordon Lewis AM’s second annual report tabled in Parliament last week, and will consider all recommendations. “Commissioner Lewis has thoroughly examined Victoria’s speed camera arrangements and has found our road camera system is accurate and that motorists can be assured of the system’s fairness and reliability,” Mr Wells said. The commissioner conducted a detailed investigation by monitoring 50 fixed digital road safety camera sites across Victoria over a 12 month period. “The commissioner found there was no evidence of malfunctioning or inaccurate road safety cameras in Victoria and that all 50 speed cameras were regularly tested and maintained.” The state government appointed Mr Lewis as Victoria’s speed camera watchdog in December 2011. “We established the role of the commissioner to increase transparency, accountability and public

confidence in Victoria’s road safety camera system. “The role is the first of its kind in Australia, and this report shows Victorians can have confidence that our road safety camera system is helping to save lives and reduce road trauma.” All revenue from speed cameras is invested in road safety through the VicRoads Better Roads trust fund. “Fines from road safety cameras totalled more than $278 million in the 2012-13 financial year which is a small amount when compared to the $3 billion that road trauma costs Victoria each year.” A 2011 report from the Auditor General found speed cameras improved road safety and reduced road trauma and that their ongoing use as an enforcement tool remained appropriate. “The introduction of speed cameras alongside other important road safety measures such as seat belts and random breath tests has cut the toll by almost 800 since 1970,” Mr Wells said. “Speed cameras are a proven deterrent to those who might otherwise drive in a manner that is dangerous to themselves, their families and other road users.”

The road safety camera commissioner has examined Victoria’s speed camera arrangements.

IT’S important for learners to get the right driving experience at the right time, and to make sure that happens, Lorne Community Hospital is hosting a workshop. Hospital health promotion coordinator Heather Ramp said Busting to Drive is an information session open to all 15 to 18 year olds, their parents and anyone else who helps young people get 120 hours of driving practice. After a free barbeque, a VicRoads presenter will give practical information on how to use the learning to drive period, get driving practice and become safe drivers. “The session takes only 60 minutes and there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions. There will be free door prizes and giveaways, including subsidised driving lessons.” Ms Ramp said you’ll find out: • why young drivers are at risk and why driving experience is so important • the importance of learning to drive in stages – from simple tasks on quiet roads to more difficult

drives in all sorts of road, weather and traffic conditions • the importance of developing a positive partnership between learners and their parents, including tips for managing stress • working with driving instructors • risks for new drivers. Ms Ramp said Busting to Drive is the first in a series of projects to enhance road safety in local communities and has been organised by the East Otway Road and Community Safety group. This is a newly formed partnership between the Lorne Community Hospital, Lorne police, RoadSafe Barwon, VicRoads, Surf Coast Shire youth development and infrastructure staff, and local community members. “Busting to Drive is partially funded by the Jai Morton Special Purpose Fund which is held in trust by the Lorne Community Hospital. “Young Jai was tragically killed in an accident on the Great Ocean Road several years ago.” Busting to Drive is a free event on September 18

Landcare’s Mandy Coulson leads state BY TIFFANY PILCHER SURF Coast and Inland Plains network Landcare coordinator Mandy Coulson has been recognised for her exceptional contribution to the organisation with a state Landcare award. Ms Coulson received the award at a ceremony at Melbourne’s Government House earlier this month and said while she was pleased with the win it was truly a group effort. “The outcome is really a combination of everyone within the network working together, it really does take the hard work of a whole team and doesn’t happen with just one person.” Coulson has been with Landcare for 17 years and the

Surf Coast and Inland Plains network for three years. She was recognised for her skills in communication, her understanding of rural community issues and team building expertise. She said the award has inspired her to continue her work in natural resource management. “It’s a bonus and it really gives you the enthusiasm to keep going. “When I first found out I was completely overwhelmed and quite taken aback. “Being here for so long, the team and I work together to achieve positive outcomes for the environment and sustainability. “It’s a collective, community based organisation and everyone wins that way.”

Take a look at Torquay’s beautiful gardens BY TIFFANY PILCHER HUNDREDS of gardening enthusiasts will flood Torquay next weekend when the carefully curated Waldeshare garden is open to the public for the last time. The garden covers 3.4 acres and is home to thousands of Indigenous plant life species which owners Robin and Rupert Irwin have selected over the past 18 years. Ms Irwin said in the garden, which also boasts more than 60 species of birds as well as frogs and various mammals, it’s not just the plants that bring the garden to life. “You can always hear the bird calls and it’s really lovely a lot of people comment on how peaceful it is here.” The Irwins are welcoming everyone to experience their labour of love for the last

time as part of the Australia’s Open Gardens scheme. “We love doing it but we are getting older now, it’s time to sit back and enjoy it,” Ms Irwin said. Another Torquay garden, Solea will also be open next weekend, featuring a diverse collection of mature and rare Indigenous plants, sculptures and ponds. The Irwin’s garden at 140 Grossmans Road and the Solea garden at 1050 Horseshoe Bend Road will both be open on September 21 and 22 from 10am to 4.30pm. Entry to each garden is $7, children under 18 enter for free and all proceeds will go to Australia’s Open Garden scheme and selected charities. For more information head to opengarden.org.au.

Spring into wildflower show

ANGAIR life member Margaret McDonald discusses a local Indigenous plant with fellow ANGAIR members. The organisation is holding their annual Wildflower Show and Art Exhibition this month to help educate people on the area’s naturally occurring flora.

WITH the recent bout of warm weather Indigenous flora is blooming and preparations are underway for the annual Anglesea, Aireys Inlet Society for the Protection of Flora and Fauna (ANGAIR) Wildflower Show and Art Exhibition. The event will be held on September 21 and 22 with guided walks and bus tours to show locals and visitors the area’s remarkable Indigenous plant life. ANGAIR president Helen Tutt said the event is an interesting and educational showcase of Aireys Inlet and Anglesea’s beautiful Indigenous vegetation. “Not only can visitors view spectacular displays of native flowers but the event also works to raise awareness of the significance of preserving the area we live in and the coast we love,” she said. The show will also feature market stalls, an environmental art exhibition, expert advice on Indigenous gardening and a wide array of children’s

entertainment and activities. The Anglesea district comprises over 100 different orchid species and is also home to the world renowned Anglesea Heath which is listed on the National Estate Register. “Anglesea alone accounts for 25 per cent of Victoria’s flora species and unfortunately some floras such as Moonah are threatened by noxious weeds that are often confused with native vegetation,” Mrs Tutt said. Everyone who attends is encouraged to bring along an environmental weed to swap for an Indigenous plant. The show will take place on September 21 and 22 at the Anglesea Memorial Hall in McMillan Street. Entry is $5 for adults, $2 for pensioners and students and children are free.

Thirteenth bucks membership trend WHILE golf club memberships around Australia continue to decline, Thirteenth Beach Golf Links at Barwon Heads continues to buck the trend. The 36-hole complex, with both courses rated in Australia’s top 25 public access courses, has increased membership by 20 per cent since 2008 while country Victorian clubs have declined on average 13 per cent. Since hosting the combined Victorian Opens for both men and women for the first time in February, the club has attracted 39 new members, including 10 juniors. As an early bird prelude to the 2014 Vic Opens the club is offering an incentive gift card worth $250 to prospective new members who take out a 10-month leased membership this month. Club general manager Anthony Masters

said the gift card could be used in the golf shop, clubhouse and restaurant. The 2013 open carnival was a roaring success, attracting more than 20,000 spectators, more than the men’s Australian Open in Sydney. Thirteenth Beach will host the dual open event for at least the next two years and seems certain to attract a naming rights sponsor in 2014. Already the carnival is strongly supported by the state government’s regional development initiative and the City of Greater Geelong’s major events program. Masters said the open events had certainly shone a very bright light on the club. “So many people told us they knew of our existence but not how good the club and the courses were.

“Each day we have one course reserved for members and the other available for public access, alternating on a roster. “Since the open our green fee rounds have increased substantially too. “Many of those visits are repeats, so obviously the courses are very popular with occasional golfers as well as our members. “Of course we’re very fortunate that our courses, being so close to the beach, are sand-based so Victoria’s wet winter has had little effect here except to raise the water level of our picturesque Lake Murtnaghurt, a popular nesting spot for many species of migratory birds.” For more information on the membership offer, contact Melissa Page or Tania Zyppel on membership@13thbeach.net or 5254 2922.

Former chief commissioner of Victoria Police Christine Nixon will be the shire’s Australia Day Ambassador. Ms Nixon will be one of the guests of honour and will make a return to the Otway region where she was once a homeowner.

Beware the red spider BY DEAN WEBSTER CONDITIONS are ripe for an explosion of red-legged earth mite (RLEM), commonly known as red spider. The hungry mites are capable of destroying productive pastures on farms. RLEM hosts include pasture legumes, subterranean and other clovers, medics and lucerne. They are particularly damaging to seedlings of all legumes, oilseeds and lupins when in high numbers. RLEM feeding reduces the productivity of established plants and has been found to be directly responsible for reduction in pasture palatability to livestock. Typical mite damage appears as â&#x20AC;&#x153;silveringâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;whiteningâ&#x20AC;? of the

Red spiders gorge on fresh pasture.

attacked foliage. RLEM are most damaging to newly establishing pastures and emerging crops, greatly reducing seedling survival and development and in severe cases, entire crops may need re-sowing following RLEM attack. The Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) advise farmers to inspect susceptible pastures and crops. DEPI extension officer Michele Ryan said that it is important to carefully inspect pastures this spring for the presence of mites and the evidence of damage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mites are best detected feeding on the leaves in the morning or on overcast days. In the warmer part of the day

RLEM tend to gather at the base of the plant, sheltering in leaf sheaths and under debris, and when they are disturbed during feeding they will drop to the ground and seek shelter.â&#x20AC;? Chemicals are the most commonly used control option against earth mites. While a number of chemicals are registered for control of active RLEM in pastures and crops, there are no registered pesticides that are effective against RLEM eggs. The optimum date for spraying can be predicted using tools such as Timerite, see timerite.wool.com. This tool provides you with the best date for spraying taking into account climatic variables once you have entered your property address.

Ling in Lorne for VPELA conference BY DEAN WEBSTER

THE Victorian Planning and Environmental Law Association (VPELA), an apolitical multidisciplinary professional association, concerned with the planning, legal and environmental fields held its 2013 conference at the Mantra in Lorne last week. Keynote speakers included Planning Minister Matthew Guy, Cameron Ling, John Thwaites and Supreme Court Justice Betty King. The primary purpose of VPELA is to facilitate professional development and promote networking opportunities for their membership across industry disciplines and with senior practitioners. A range of subjects were covered at the annual conference in Lorne, ranging from reforming the state planning system, sustainability on the world stage and the challenges facing local government.

Cats superstar and Surf Coast local Cameron Ling spoke about the importance of having shared values within a team and that shared values are as important, if not more important, than skills when recruiting young players. Mr Ling stressed that no team can be successful if their attitude is selfish, and that selflessness is the key to successful teamwork. VPELA president Tamara Brezzi said that the board of VPELA was thrilled with the success of its 2013 conference at Lorne. “The theme of the conference was Business as Unusual and explored planning, environment and development sector issues that face Victoria. “Over 280 people attended over two days to hear the words of talented speakers concerning topics that included whether the growth areas of Victoria are sustainable and why the Geelong Football Club Victorian Planning Minister Matthew Guy spoke at the conference. has won three premierships in five years.”

Zoos Victoria praised for saving species BY DEAN WEBSTER

MINISTER for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith announced the outstanding results of Zoos Victoria’s threatened species breeding program. Speaking at Healesville Sanctuary, Mr Smith said the achievement was a credit to all those involved in Zoos Victoria’s threatened species breeding programs. “In the past 12 months, 37 Orange-bellied Parrots were bred right here at Healesville Sanctuary, that is the sanctuary’s best result in the 19-year life of the program. “There were also 14 helmeted honeyeaters hatched and due to be released into the wild in October. “With only 60 honeyeaters estimated to remain in the wild, these birds will form a crucial part of the wild population.”

Aireys Inlet resident and ANGAIR life member Marg MacDonald, who has a long history of flora and fauna protection on the coast, is pleased with this announcement. “All these rare and threatened species are very important to our fauna population and I congratulate Zoos Victoria on their success. “We have had one confirmed sighting of an Orangebellied Parrot at Aireys last year and it would be great to see more.” Birdlife Australia’s Samantha Vine is also encouraged by the news. “Sadly, the Orange-bellied Parrot is one of Australia’s most threatened species and is critically endangered, meaning it is at extremely high risk of extinction in the near future,” she said. “The current wild population is around just 45 birds, and I am pleased there is an active program to pull this species back from the brink of extinction.”

New childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s karate in Torquay BY ALI DEANE A NEW karate dojo in Torquay is opening up and students will not only be able to give the sport a try, they will also learn and hone important self-defence skills and build selfconfidence. Sensei Aurelia Kemp, third Dan black belt, is a former national competitor and current state coach. She is the chief instructor at Shukokai Karate Torquay Dojo and is excited about sharing her knowledge and skills in the versatile and challenging sport. Ms Kemp first tried Karate at 11 years of age. After time in other sports, she returned to it at 21 and went on to compete with the state team for over 10 years and the Australian team for eight years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It always stayed with me and after school

I decided I wanted to look after myself, so I went back to it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really believe in karate. I travelled overseas competing and I really enjoy it; the challenge, the consistency, and that you can get really good at it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The style I teach is sport based. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You never get bored, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always improving, and I can see the self-confidence build as students get better.â&#x20AC;? Karate can be practiced in many variations but is in general forms of punching and kicking to defend yourself. Some is full-contact, with pads for competition and some has no contact. In Ms Kempâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s classes, starting in term 4 for 6-14 year olds, children will be monitored and younger students practice no contact in a controlled environment and later can work towards some contact.

Ms Kemp believes it is important to know your coach, because if you click with your instructor you can get the most out of it. She is hosting a free â&#x20AC;&#x153;come and try dayâ&#x20AC;? on September 16, over two sessions from 4-4.30pm and 4.30pm-5pm at the new dojo in Torquay. There is also an introduction to a self defence course targeting women to be held on September 21, from 9.30-11.30am. The childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s karate classes will run for term 4, on Monday afternoons starting October 14 for 10 weeks, from 4.15-5pm. Students who enrol and pay prior to the end of term 3 (by September 20) will receive a free uniform, badge and gloves. To find out more head to karatetorquay.com.au or give Aurelia a call on 0402 332 727.

Seismic survey may shake up the whales BY JAMES TAYLOR A PLAN to develop a gas field off the coast of south west Victoria has raised fears it could disrupt the population of migrating whales. Last week, oil and gas company AWE announced it had signed an agreement with WHL Energy to carry out a three-dimensional seismic survey of the P67 permit between Port Campbell and Warrnambool, which contains the La Bella gas field. The survey expected to start before the end of the year, after which AWE can surrender its interest in the

permit or commit to drilling two exploratory wells. However, the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW) says the survey will start at a time when the waters are known to be frequented by whales. According to the organisation, 20 blue whales were sighted in the area last November and a record 70 last December, and the southern right whales and their calves seen last week at Warrnambool would be passing through towards Antarctica when the seismic survey began. IFAW marine scientist Sharon Livermore said

there were more than 300 oil and gas reserves in Australian waters but only five areas critical to whales, including between Warrnambool and Port Campbell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is these special areas that IFAW wants to see free from damaging underwater noise pollution and we call on the local community to help us protect their whales and habitat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;While the recent financial collaboration between WHL and AWE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a company that also has marine exploration projects in Indonesia â&#x20AC;&#x201C; may be cause of celebration in their offices, for whales and other

marine life, this development poses a threat to an area renowned as the whale watching capital of the south west.â&#x20AC;? AWE says the survey has full environmental approvals. Managing director Bruce Clement said the La Bella gas and condensate field was located close to existing infrastructure, which significantly enhanced its development potential. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Gas prices in south east Australia are expected to rise over coming years, making the economic case attractive.â&#x20AC;?

Quiet carriages a roaring success IN A first for Victorian public transport, V/Line will roll out quiet carriages across its VLocity train fleet in response to a successful trial earlier this year. From January until June, seven VLocity trains were part of the quiet carriage trial with a courtesy code that asked customers to speak quietly, switch mobile phones to silent and turn down electronic devices. In response to the positive customer response to the trial, V/Line will now implement quiet carriages on another 25 VLocity trains, bringing the total number to 32. Minister for Public Transport Terry Mulder said the quiet carriage was a welcome innovation and an exciting initiative by customers, for customers. “V/Line has listened to the overwhelming response of customers during the trial period, to make the quiet carriages a permanent feature of regional travel,” Mr Mulder said. “This is about responding to customer demand and providing the peace and quiet that customers enjoy, when they travel in and around regional Victoria.”

A hush falls over Southern Cross Station as the quiet carriage arrives.

V/Line chief executive officer Theo Taifalos said the trial proved that customers are keen to experience peace and quiet during their travel. “In our increasingly hectic lives, the quiet carriage provides an opportunity for our customers to unwind, relax and experience a peaceful journey. “During the trial period our customers suggested additional signage on the outside and inside of the quiet carriages to help ensure a quiet space for all. “There will be no penalty for breaking the rules, but we are promoting courtesy, so I suspect the majority of customers will respect the quiet carriage etiquette.” Only one quiet carriage will be designated on a three-carriage VLocity train, so people who want to chat can use the other carriages. The additional quiet carriages will be rolled out progressively from late September to Christmas. There will be 32 quiet carriages by the end of this year and on the VLocity trains, the quiet carriage will be at the end of the three carriage set. A six carriage set may have two quiet carriages.

BY TIFFANY PILCHER BORN into conflict ravaged Belfast, Brian Kennedy would never have become a singer had Van Morrison not personally intervened. Now he’s one of Ireland’s most recognisable performers and has been topping the charts for 23 years. This Sunday, he will demonstrate why he is so well regarded when he performs at the Anglesea Golf Club as part of the Roo Twilight series. Kennedy’s star-speckled introduction to the industry is the stuff of upcoming artist’s fantasies. In 1998, he became Van Morrison’s protégé, performing on a number of his albums and live in concert. The exposure lead Kennedy to a spot on the infamous Blues and Soul Revue tour where he shared the stage with Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan and Ray Charles. With this almost unbelievable introduction to the industry, Kennedy soon found solo success as a contemporary singer and songwriter with his ballads making themselves at home on top of the British charts. “It was incredible, coming from West Belfast, I shouldn’t have even been a singer, it shouldn’t have been on the cards,” Kennedy said. “I’ve been very fortunate to have met and worked with some very talented people.” Those very talented people also include Stevie Wonder and a chance gig with Jeff Buckley. “I was just in the right place at the right time and I knew straight away that he was something very special,” Kennedy said. While quick to sing the praises of his contemporaries, it takes Kennedy a little pushing to mention the heights of his own success. “I guess it wasn’t until I was asked to be a judge on The Voice of Ireland that I was well able to look back and say I have had a fairly great career.” This wasn’t the first time he was recognised on such a grand scale, in 2006 he represented Ireland in Eurovision, taking out 10th place and performing the

1,000th song in Eurovision history. “It was a totally different planet, they don’t breathe oxygen there, they breathe glitter,” he laughed. “As soon as I got off the plane they were calling me Ireland instead of Brian, it was so strange but also nice to feel so patriotic because that was so looked down on in Belfast.” Kennedy is still riding high off the release of his latest album Voice but has already started working on album number 13 which will be a tribute to Joni Mitchell. “I haven’t recorded any songs yet but I do know a few so if anyone in the audience at my show requests a Joni Mitchell song I might be able to work something out. “I encourage the audience to ask questions between songs during my set so I can communicate directly with them – it might be asking for trouble but it always makes things interesting.” Brian Kennedy will perform at the Anglesea Golf Club, Golf Links Road, Anglesea on September 15 at 7.30pm Dinner and show tickets are $70 and show only tickets are $35, bookings are essential One of Ireland’s greatest vocal talents, Brian Kennedy is coming to Anglesea to and can be made by calling Mary on perform his biggest hits and audience requests on Sunday. 0419 155 935.

Artists unite for festival fundraiser

BY ALI DEANE

IT IS not long until Anglesea will echo with the sounds of the Anglesea Music Festival (AMF) this October, and punters can be treated to a taste of the diverse lineup at a special fundraiser night at Anglesea Hotel next Saturday. AMF’s fundraiser gig – which helps raise much needed funds for the festival’s infrastructure, including marquees, sound equipment, staging etcetera – will kick off with multitalented 12-year-old local songstress Katherine Rigg on keys, singing a selection of songs to start off the night. Surf Coast’s Pat Wilson will showcase more local young talent with his indie-roots inspired collection of original country folk and pop. The Larson Effect from Jan Juc will bring their original compositions and amazing makeovers of covers, which have been described as a new take on old-style rock. Attendees will also be able to soak up some storytelling by Melbourne singer-songwriter Michael Waugh, whose contemporary voice retains the country sound he grew up with. Festival director Karren Stoneham said his beautiful music is rich in the texture and detail of

life, and his gift is taking the audience to a time and place immediately relatable and visceral. Folk rock-Celtic-Australiana six-piece McAlpine’s Fusiliers will perform their combination of traditional folk instruments with punk rhythm at the festival. Their sound has been referred to a “swaggie punk” – loud, proud and uncompromisingly Australian. And festival stalwarts Keshie promises a high energy show that will have you jiving to their high vibing happy music, a blend of African street style with original tunes. Ms Stoneham said it would be a great taste of the festival, and only build excitement levels. “There is real diversity and a mix of genres. Last year’s fundraiser gig was fantastic, we had such great support.” Get to Anglesea Hotel on September 21 to dance off those winter blues. Doors open 6.30pm for a 7pm start, till late, and entry is $20. Tickets to Anglesea Music Festival (October 18-20), are available at Anglesea Hotel or through Moshtix. Children under 12 are free with a ticketed adult. Head to angleseamusicfestival.com.au.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

JON HELMER

It’s Champagne season JUST by virtue of the fact that I’ve given this article a heading with Champagne in the title means that this isn’t about Australian sparkling wine. In fact it can only ever be about that special beverage we know and love that flows from the only region in France able to call it’s sparkling wine by that name – Champagne. Right, so we’ve got that out of the way. Now, we all know the big Champagne brands like Veuve Cliquot, Bollinger, Moet Chandon, Billecart, and Louis Roederer etcetera, but of course there’s so many other makers just as good if not better out there that are starting to make their presence felt in the Australian market. Names like the five-star rated Egly-Ouriet have gained a strong following and foothold in the Australian restaurant scene and amongst Champagne tragics. I was recently reacquainted with their stunning sparklings at a trade tasting and just had to feature them here and share my enthusiasm. Pronounced “egg-lee oo-ree-ay”, the champagne’s of Egly-Ouriet follow biodynamic, organic viticultural principles, with fruit sourced from very low yielding vines and no fining or filtration used in the production process. The domaine is located in Ambonnay, with other vineyards in Bouzy and Verzenay, which are all 100 per cent Pinot Noir dominant and classed as Grand Cru (the best and most important sites). All the sites are meticulously cared for and the attention to detail and natural viticultural methods resonate in the wines resulting in amazing purity of fruit, depth and concentration of flavour, intensity and hedonistic aromas that their cult followers around the world duly crave. To quote Pierre Rovani from The Wine Advocate, who puts it ever so eloquently – “EglyOuriet fashions wines of substantial richness, more suited to those who desire vinosity over vivacity.” In other words, the distinctive body, colour and taste of the wine over the more singularly obvious liveliness of it. So, with the real Champagne season upon us once again, surely its time to spoil your taste buds with the super expressive Champagnes from Egly-Ouriet. Oui?

Egly-Ouriet Grand Cru Brut Tradition NV ($95) Egly-Ouriet… bit of a tongue twister to say the least but an absolute belter of a Champagne to drink and their Brut Tradition is regarded by many as the best introduction to the wines of Francis Egly. Superlatives like “irresistible” and “dazzling” come easy and seem apt descriptors for the style that so beautifully combines richness, minerality, elegance and finesse with such poise yet it’s a powerhouse of complexity, texture and flavour. The incredibly vibrant and bright aromatics alone are enough to inform you just how special this wine is and how much pleasure awaits you once you get to the good bit – the gorgeous palate. Absolutely stunning!

Feathers, fun and fantasy of Burlesco! BY ALI DEANE TWO alluring cabaret nights of glamour, dance and entertainment will treat audiences at the Bellarine’s home of the arts, the Potato Shed, this month. Burlesco! presented by Dance Initiative Productions will see exciting up-tempo masquerade inspired performances by graduates of the 2013 Burlesque Dance Course over two nights of September 20 and 21. Dancers from the Bellarine, Geelong and Queenscliff have been busily preparing a show of 15 dance routines in true burlesque style over three acts. The night of fun and fantasy is aimed at adult audiences – those wishing to have a fun night out with friends and even

those who are considering enrolling in next year’s Burlesque Beginners Course. Artistic director Sally Pearson who brought the soldout Burlesque With Beat to the Potato Shed in 2012, said she was really excited to showcase Burlesco! and audience members should prepare to be captivated by the skill and vibrancy of the dancers and the glamorous feminine costumes in the intimacy of the Potato Shed Theatre. “It’s certainly a step up from last year, there is a range of ability and standards, and a large variety of styles and flavours. “Some of the dancers hadn’t had dance experience before, but we’ve been working on production since February, and rehearsals have been going

really well. This is their debut, so I’m very excited.” The night of stylised dance entertainment will be in a cabaret setting; guests are invited to bring a platter of food, and purchase drinks at bar prices. Table and tiered seating is available, and bookings (essential) can be made by phoning 5251 1998, all tickets $22. Burlesco! will show September 20 and 21 at The Potato Shed, Drysdale. Doors open at 7.30pm, show commences at 8pm, and the dance floor will be open for all after the show. Just some of the fabulous outfits from Dance Initiative Productions’ Burlesco! at the Potato Shed this month. Photo: KERRIE REYNOLDS

Instagram your way into a beautiful exhibition BY JAMES TAYLOR BUDDING young photographers have been encouraged to share their pictures of Geelong’s beautiful things for a coming exhibition hosted by the City of Greater Geelong. The Beautiful Things competition invites photographers aged 12-25 to submit photos via mobile phone app Instagram. The photos can be of any thing, place or person

This photo by “clairedewberry” is one of the many already listed under #beautifulthingsgeelong on Instagram.

within the City of Greater Geelong region, reflecting the photographer’s idea of something beautiful. To enter, photos must be tagged with #beautifulthingsgeelong. The exhibition will select 70 of the photos to be shown for 12 months at the Old Post Office, on the corner of Gheringhap and Ryrie streets in Geelong. The competition started on September 1 and will run until the end of the month. Youth portfolio holder Cr Jan Farrell said the increasing popularity of photography apps such as Instagram encouraged more and more young people to express their creativity through photography. “There are some really talented young photographers out there and this competition is a great way to showcase their images. “Photographers often have a knack for see something beautiful in everyday situations, so it will be great to see perhaps some more common sights of Geelong in a new light.” Suggestions for photos include what you do for fun, your friends, night time, sunset or sunrise, the street where you live, or your family. The Beautiful Things competition is a youth arts project by the council’s youth development unit. For more information, head to facebook.com/teenactivitiesgeelong.

Missy Higgins joins A Show For Casey BY JAMES TAYLOR THE charity fundraiser for Casey Tutungi has been bolstered with even more musical firepower with the addition of Missy Higgins to the lineup. Higgins will return to her high school town of Geelong on September 29 to perform in A Show For Casey alongside a huge list of talented Australian artists. Higgins was one of the standouts of last year’s Queenscliff Music Festival.

More recently, she has been revealed as one of the artists featured on the Hunters and Collectors tribute album Crucible, on which she performs a cover of “This Morning” with Matt Corby. The all-ages show, to be held at Simonds Stadium the day after the Grand Final, is a fundraiser for Tutungi, who suffered a horrific spinal injury several months ago while playing football for South Barwon. He made his first public appearance last week to thank

people for the support he has received since the injury. Other artists already announced for A Show for Casey are the You Am I Allstars, Something For Kate’s Paul Dempsey, Regurgitator, Lisa Mitchell, Magic Dirt’s Adalita, The Bamboos, Dan Sultan and the Yacht Club DJs. The impressive lineup has been organised by Falls Festival promoter Simon Daly. Head to caseytutungi.com/ashow-for-casey for tickets and more information.

Big names fill out Falls BY TIFFANY PILCHER

Missy Higgins is the latest big name to sign up to the benefit concert.

PLENTY of fuel has been added to the Falls Festival fire with another major lineup announcement last week including the legendary founder of The Smiths, Johnny Marr. As the guitarist and significant creative force behind The Smiths, Marr rejected the ubiquitous synth-soaked sound of the 80s and revolutionised post-punk rock music. The Smiths’ and Marr’s influence is still compelling today with bands including Oasis, Blur and Arctic Monkeys crediting them with creating the blueprint for their sound. Freshly minted indie-rock darlings The Rubens have also been added to the bill along with haunting songstress Emma Louise, and

retro hit makers Hungry Kids of Hungary. Home grown hip hoppers Horrorshow and Thundamentals and grunge rockers Violent Soho are sure to have the amphitheatre pumping but if you want to take it a little easier don’t miss sets by Melbourne indie-folk outfit The Paper Kites or Philadelphia’s The War on Drugs. Sydney’s low-fi electro pinup boy Oliver Tank will appear in the JB Seed slot. The newly announced acts are joining a host of huge performers including Neil Finn, MGMT, Solange, Vampire Weekend, Violent Femmes, The Wombats and Crystal Fighters. Falls Festival is being held over the New Year period in Lorne, Marion Bay and Byron Bay, for dates, ticket information and the full line up head to fallsfestival.com.au.

farm food AT HOME with Tony Le Deux

Panna cotta brings back memories I WAS recently invited to judge cooking competition the Y Chef Cooking Challenge. The competition is coordinated by BacLinks which specialises in creating relationships between the business and community sectors for mutual benefit. Over 40 students from St Ignatius College, The Gordon, Northern Bay Secondary College and Sacred Heart College undertaking VET in Schools hospitality spent two months being mentored by prominent local chefs Leonie Mills (Jack and Jill), Daniel Brehaut (Black Bull), Jan Solovic (Empire Grill) and Cory Hyde (Telegraph Hotel). The students were assessed by their mentor and teachers with the best two pairs of students from each school progressing to the final. The finalists competed in a cook off, preparing and presenting a set three course meal. The entrée was bocconcini and tomato tart, followed by chicken and polenta and a dessert of panna cotta and rhubarb. The menu was designed to test cooking technique and teamwork. The judges – Frank Camorra from MoVida, Hayden Miller from Bay FM, Gail Thomas, a freelance food writer and I – were impressed by the incredibly high standard. The students had clearly worked hard and had a passion for food. They were pleasant, well presented, polite and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The winners were from The Gordon and, along with many other prizes, will spend a day in the shadow of award winning chef, Matt Dempsey, at his restaurant, Gladioli. Seeing the preparation of the panna cotta reminded me of a unique catering job I did many years ago. It was a play called Emma – Celebrazione directed by the eminent actor Catherine McClements at Gasworks in Port Melbourne. It was a sell out for 10 performances and a meal was interwoven into the play. There was a feasting scene which led to the audience being served Italian baked pasta and a panna cotta. The logistics of serving many hundreds of meals during interval was a nightmare, but well worth the effort. The audience loved it.

Panna cotta INGREDIENTS 4 x 8g gold strength gelatine leaves 750ml thickened cream (35% milk fat) 1 vanilla bean, halved and seeds scraped

300ml milk 160g caster sugar

METHOD Soak the gelatine in iced water until softened. In a saucepan, combine the cream, milk and sugar and vanilla bean and seeds. Stir and bring to a simmer. Squeeze the excess water from the gelatine and stir into the hot cream mixture. Stir over low heat until the gelatine has completely dissolved, then remove from the heat. Lightly oil 10 x 125ml dariole moulds pour in cream mixture. Refrigerate overnight. To turn out the panna cottas, dip each mould into very hot water and give it a little shake. Turn the mould upside down onto a plate and shake gently. Serve with poached fruit or berries of your choice.

Cowrie Market’s back and even better BY TIFFANY PILCHER TORQUAY’S Cowrie Market is back this weekend for another season and this year it’s even more special as the much-loved event turns sweet 16. The market will be held on the third Sunday of every month from September 15 to April 18 and will once again showcase the best in handcrafted design and art products and yummy offerings from creative food stalls. Market coordinator Kyla Vinton said there will be a few tweaks and new stalls this year as well as everyone’s favourites. “The busking area will be more prominent this year to help promote upcoming and local musicians. “Aside from that there will be more of the things that everyone loves, good food, good stalls and good music.” This weekend, musicians Rachael Ball, Bellbrae Blues Club, Black Swans of Trespass and Pape Mbaye will be appearing and Wild Moves will have everyone on their feet for their African dance and drumming performance. Ms Vinton said she is excited for everyone to come along and enjoy the wide range of art and craft stalls which will be better than ever this year. “We’re always looking for great quality products and something that’s different and not mass produced. “The idea is to give artists a chance to have a go without being up against the big guys.” The first Cowrie Market of the season will be held at Elephant Walk on The Esplanade on Sunday September 15 from 10am to 3pm.

A+E news in brief Fairy folk to get mutton ticket

PORT Fairy Folk Music Festival 2014 has broken its own record with subscriber tickets selling out in 24 hours. More sold in the first day this year for next year’s March festival than for the same period over the last three years put together. The Mutton Bird release – named for the 30,000 odd mutton birds who also call Port Fairy home for a time each year – opened yesterday. Punters can get in quickly to save $65 off the final adult price ($30 off the final youth ticket) putting them well on the way to a fabulous four days on the beautiful south west Victorian coast. Tickets are on sale to the public via portfairyfolkfestival.com or trybooking.com over a series of releases. When the The Mutton Bird release sells out, The Kelp Gull release follows on immediately.

mind matters

Tuesday 10 September 2013

Š Joanne Madeline Moore 2013

Saturn cautions you to do all your homework thoroughly before you power ahead with an ambitious project. Capricorns are self-contained creatures but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t battle along on your own. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll make more progress over the next few weeks if you combine your creative talents with other like-minded souls. The power of the group is on your side, so use it to your advantage.

You have numerous attributes including exuberant energy and endless enthusiasm but being patient isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t usually one of them. This week a pinch of patience will lower frustration levels, as Saturn encourages you to be more measured and disciplined. The pace quickens on Sunday, when Uranus helps you come up with an idea that makes others sit up and take notice.

Are you missing out on lucky breaks because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re being an overly cautious crustacean? With adventurous Jupiter jumping through your sign until July 2014 make it a priority to plunge into the pool of opportunity and live life to the max. Be inspired by birthday great D. H. Lawrence â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to live my life so that my nights are not full of regrets.â&#x20AC;? Seize the day with your claws Crabs!

Librans can get stuck in a cycle where you worry if things arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t 100 per cent perfect. With Mercury moving into your sign and Jupiter in your reputation zone itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to lighten up and have a lot more fun. Your motto for the moment is from writer Roald Dahl born on September 13, 1916 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x153;A little nonsense now and then is cherished by the wisest menâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;Ś and women!

Love is in the air as Venus vamps into your relationship zone on Wednesday, and then links up with romantic Neptune on Saturday. Attached Bulls, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to show your partner how much you really care. Singles, get real about the future, and give flippant lovers the flick! Look for someone who has monogamy, marriage and commitment on their mind.

Mighty Mars is charging through fiery Leo, which adds to your already pumped-up energy, like getting a dose of cosmic steroids! Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re impatient to proceed with a domestic matter but, with Venus moving through your home zone from September 11-October 8, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to slow down and smoke the peace pipe with a fractious family member. Compromise is the key.

With Venus vamping into your sign from Wednesday until October 8 itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your time to shine Scorpio! Charm is your currency of choice, as you convert the cynics and dazzle the doubters. When it comes to work, a combination of passion and persistence will take you where you want to go. The weekend is fabulous for focusing on a problem, and then fixing it.

Have you been having professional problems? Venus shifts into your career zone on Wednesday, so the next month is a terrific time to spruce up your work space; resolve an issue with a colleague; or apply for a job. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a wonderful weekend to ring in some radical changes, as innovative ideas and an adventurous attitude propel you into exciting new territory.

Mercury your ruling planet moves into Libra from September 9-29 which helps improve a rickety relationship with a child, teenager or friend. A combination of communication and cooperation is the best way to keep things on track. Jupiter blesses financial matters, as long as you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get carried away, and spend more than you earn. Aim for a balanced budget.

The week starts well, when Mercury moves into Libra which will help calm your nervous energy and settle your busy mind. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the perfect time to boost your cash flow with a creative money-making venture or a smart savings plan. But your compulsive Virgo side revs up on Sunday as you stress and obsess about an issue involving children, finances or friends.

The week starts slowly, as somber Saturn pours cold water on an ambitious project or spontaneous plan. Pay close attention to minor details, as you discipline yourself to stick to a slow and steady routine. Thursday is your best day, as motivation and enthusiasm return and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in high Sagittarian spirits. Sunday is super for sporting activities and outdoor adventures.

If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a business trip or heavenly holiday coming up, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave things until the last minute. Now is the time to fine-tune your itinerary and finalise your paperwork. Attached Pisceans, love is your drug of choice on Sunday, as you share the romantic Neptunian vibes with your partner. Singles, make your dreams for the future as creative as possible.

Community clinics for a healthier Forrest

Wake up smiling TORQUAY residents now have greater access to specialist dental services in their own backyard with a specialist anaesthetist joining the community. Pacific Smiles Dental, Torquay introduced intravenous (IV) sedation services in mid July. Anaesthetist Dr Anand Thillaisundaram will assist selected dentists at Pacific Smiles Dental with IV sedation treatments, allowing patients to undergo their dental treatment whilst being administered with a combination of sedative and pain relieving medications to create a drowsy and dream like state of deep, calming relaxation. The treatment is carried out at Pacific Smiles Dental Torquay and is ideal for patients who might find visiting the dentist an anxious and overwhelming experience. Children (generally over 12 years old) and adults can both benefit from IV sedation for almost all dental procedures including fillings, crowns, multiple extractions, removal of wisdom teeth and dental implant placements. Pacific Smiles Dental Torquay centre manager Anne Badham

said she was happy to be offering an enhanced service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are pleased to be able to offer Torquay residents more specialised dental services, right here in Torquay. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We look forward to helping those members of the community who may be anxious about visiting the dentist.â&#x20AC;?

BY TIFFANY PILCHER FORREST residents will now have regular access to a registered nurse for information and assistance on managing chronic illness. The clinics will be held monthly by community health nurse Loren Jenkins who will discuss topics in relation to personal health issues. Issues can include asthma, chronic obstructive airways disease, diabetes management, obesity, nutritional advice, smoking cessation and general health queries. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The clinic is open to everyone and provides an opportunity for clients to discuss which aspects of their illnesses they are managing really well and other areas that they may need help or direction with in terms of lifestyle,â&#x20AC;? Ms Jenkins said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Individual needs can vary from one person to another, so the service is designed to empower clients to effectively manage their health concerns with continuity of care over time and through different stages of

their condition.â&#x20AC;? Ms Jenkins has worked in rural and remote areas throughout Australia, including Aboriginal health, emergency, outpatients clinics, general medical and surgical wards. She has also completed a postgraduate certificate in emergency nursing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Throughout my nursing career, it is apparent that chronic illness can have a major impact on peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives and learning to manage their illness effectively is sometimes a long process,â&#x20AC;? she said â&#x20AC;&#x153;Through providing a chronic disease management clinic I aim to help close the gap for clients who contact a health service just because they feel unwell.â&#x20AC;? The first chronic disease management clinic will be held at Forrest Neighbourhood House, on September 11 from 9.30am to 12.30pm. Further clinics are scheduled for October 16, November 13 and December 18. For appointments to see Loren, please phone Otway Health directly on 5237 8500.

Registered nurse Loren Jenkins will hold monthly health clinics in Forrest for chronic illness sufferers and their families.

ADVERTORIAL

Indulgent new spa menu offers twice the relaxation OVERLOOKING the pristine Victorian coastline at Zeally Bay, the Day Spa at Wyndham Resort Torquay is an oasis surrounded by natural beauty and serenity. That connection with nature is now reflected in the resort’s indulgent new spa menu, which features some of the top organic and natural skin care brands and treatments used in Australia today. The day spa’s extensive product list now boasts Eco Tan, a spray tanning formula created on the Gold Coast which has attracted a huge following including celebrities. Eco Tan is the first and only tanning manufacturer in Australia to be certified organic by the Organic Food Chain.

Wyndham has a new-look day spa menu and they are offering 50 per cent off treatments.

For blissful, customised facials the spa uses the highly regarded, natural Eminence range of skincare products, which are free from artificial colours, fragrances and genetically modified ingredients. Professional spa therapists ensure a deeply relaxing therapy, while the natural products enhance the treatment’s therapeutic qualities. “Today clients are more health conscious than ever and are looking for natural and organic options that are not only safer, but are also proven to be effective,” day spa manager Julie Harvey said. “At Wyndham Resort Torquay we pride ourselves on being leaders in the local spa industry, so it made sense to offer our customers the groundbreaking new natural formulas that are coming onto the market.” Indulge in spa rituals that invigorate both body and soul, including Aroma Swedish massage, stone therapy and blissful body wraps and polishes. The day spa is home to respected brands including Dermalogica and OPI manicure and pedicure products and also offers Shellac nails, waxing and makeup services. For a revitalising experience, clients can take a dip in the heated lap pool, use the steam room before a treatment, or sip herbal tea in the relaxation room. Extend your Torquay spa experience with a relaxing stay in one of Wyndham Resort Torquay’s stylish hotel rooms or spacious self-contained apartments. The resort is also home to the celebrated

Latitude-38 Restaurant and Bar. To celebrate its exciting new-look menu the spa is offering 50 per cent off all treatments that are 60 minutes or longer. This incredible offer is valid on weekdays only until September 30, strictly by appointment. For a truly relaxing escape, book the day spa indulgence package which includes overnight accommodation at Wyndham Resort Torquay, full buffet breakfast for two, a 60-minute Aroma Swedish couples massage, bottle of sparkling wine on arrival and late checkout of 12 noon for just $260 per couple. The Day Spa is located at 100 The Esplanade, Torquay. Phone 5261 1530 or email torquay. spa@wyn.com for appointments. Visit wyndhamtorquay.com.au for more information.

Bellarine boys in fight for the flag BY ALI DEANE ANTICIPATION for a thrilling Bellarine Football League grand final this weekend is building after Queenscliff booked their spot in their third grand final in as many years, with a defiant win over Geelong Amateur on the weekend. Following the upset that saw the Coutas lose their first match of the season in the final just over a week ago to Drysdale (66-73), the hunger and focus had returned to their game with ferocity, taking down a competitive Amateur side, 12.14 (86) – 6.15 (51). Playing coach Tom Limb said Drysdale last week had showed them the level of intensity and contested style of game required at finals, and that was their focus going into the weekend’s preliminary final. “They’re (Geelong Amateur) are a really good side, when you get to the final three, every side is a quality side. They’ve had a really good year, and they had a go, which we knew they would. “Whether you go to dominate or not, the focus from the group was to get that hunger back, from the start. “We knew we’d be in for a good contest. And we’re happy to come away with the win, and go to the next contest.”

On paper the Coutas have the advantage heading into the grand final against the Hawks, having won two of their three meetings this season, taking them down in Round 15 129-84 and a close win back in Round 6 (70-68). Limb said he expected the weekend’s final to be a tight, contested game. “Two of the times we’ve played this year, it has been two and seven points the difference. “You go into these games hoping to put up a competitive fight, and we expect Drysdale to do the same. “A few haven’t experienced a grand final week, and it is good to give them that opportunity. I’m hoping for some calm heads to guide the others, and give ourselves every opportunity for a good game. “We always get good support around town, so hopefully the red, white and blue get down in their droves on the weekend.” Drysdale were premiers in 2009 and 2010, and the Coutas will be playing for three in a row. Get down to Torquay’s Spring Creek Reserve on Saturday, to catch all the action from the BFL grand finals. Fans are advised no alcohol or dogs allowed, and entry will be charged at the gate.

A NEW report just released by the Fisheries Research and Development Corporation shows clearly that we need to act on the Anglesea River, not talk about it. The report highlights the Anglesea River as one of the key sites in the management and ecological maintenance of our estuarine systems across Victoria. It highlights the fish death in 2009/2010 and quite clearly states that the Anglesea River is a priority in need of particular assistance not just for the economic benefit that can be derived by the Surf Coast but also for the health and wellbeing of the environment and the community of Anglesea. It needs help and support from both federal and state governments and this has been highlighted again two weeks ago by the fish kill in the river, which left dozens and dozens of dead fish on the river’s banks. Surf Coast chief executive officer Stephen Wall said recently that the council is committed to the removal of the rock wall but reiterated they didn’t want to impact negatively on the ecology of the river. Weeks ago I warned the council that the wall needed to be removed before September as this is the fish movement time for breeding within estuarine systems. The Anglesea River Support Action Group (ARSAG) advised the council that the only window of opportunity they would have would be before September and that if they missed that, which they have, they would have to wait until the New Year to act. The impact that has already taken place will most likely mean no breeding season this September for bream in the river. ARSAG believes the only way to encourage the river back to life again is to remove the wall ASAP and allow the system to be flushed out with sea water as soon as appropriately possible. The council and relevant government departments must act quickly this time. The wall is not the only issue. It’s part of the broader job of looking after the river and some good programs aimed at addressing some of the other issues are already under way. The problems are not going to solve themselves.

ANGLESEA GOLF CLUB IN CASE you haven’t caught up with the news – the old caretaker’s residence at the back of the clubhouse was badly affected by a fire in the early hours of Thursday morning. The local CFA did a fantastic job containing the fire to only that building and saving the clubhouse from any damage. The residence was used for storage of administration, signage and bistro supplies, as well as some of the trophies for Open Week. The full extent of the loss won’t be known until this week. The ladies were able to play golf on Thursday and the sold out Tex Perkins event went ahead. We must extend a very big thank you to our local CFA team for their support when we needed it most. Open week entry forms are available now at the clubhouse and on the web. The events start on Sunday October 20 and all the regular “sorry golf” events are included. Start lining up your partners and teams now and get those entry forms in early.

Ray Heathcote won B Grade with nett 71, and Bernie Dilger won C Grade with nett 76 on a count back from Howard Cross. With only three ladies starting their rounds and none finishing we had no ladies winner.

THIS Sunday we invited members to come along and see the unveiling of the new honor boards. It turned out to be a great day, we had quite a crowd and it was nice to see some of the elder members turn up and talk about events won and lost in days gone by. The committee has once again worked hard to get the honor boards looking fabulous, the new glass artwork shows them off well and it is much appreciated by all the members who were happy to see them back up on display where they belong. Thank you to the committee for another successful member’s day.

RESULTS:

PORTARLINGTON GOLF CLUB THE annual Carnival of Golf, with in excess of 1,200 entries over nine days, got off to a spectacular start on August 31, where both weather and course were superb. The blue-ribbon event, the Mens 36 hole championship was dominated by Clifton Springs player Luke Allen, who birdied four holes on his first 18 to record an excellent 70, being five shots clear of his nearest rival. The second 18 saw Portarlington local Gavan Whyley top the field with a brilliant 69, helping towards his nett victory, but that wasn’t enough to topple Allen, whose 2nd round 76 was enough to bring home the bacon. Brad Dunn, from East Geelong came second with scores of 76, 70.

Craig McCaughan is congratulated on his re-appointment by Tim Carson at Spring Creek Reserve. Photo: JAMES TAYLOR

McCaughan to lead Tigers 2014 BY JAMES TAYLOR CRAIG McCaughan is hoping for better things next season as he continues his role at the top of the Tigers. Torquay Football Club announced last week that it had re-appointed McCaughan as its senior coach for the 2014 season. The senior side was bundled out of the Bellarine Football League finals in the first week after their three-point loss to Ocean Grove. Tigers football committee member Tim Carson said the club was disappointed with the exit, but was very impressed with the culture and attitude McCaughan had brought to the team. The seniors finished in fourth place at the end of the regular season, with 12 wins, five losses and a draw. McCaughan said the Tigers â&#x20AC;&#x153;lost a couple of games we shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t haveâ&#x20AC;? towards the end of the year but not winning the premiership did not mean the season went badly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Success is a combination of things

youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re judged on.â&#x20AC;? He said injuries meant the club was unable to get its best team on the park, and he had looked to get a number of games into its younger players. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But ultimately, we came fifth and that was disappointing.â&#x20AC;? There is not much of a holiday for Torquayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s players, with training to resume at the end of November and six to eight sessions to be held before Christmas â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll introduce new players, and help the guys remember the feel of the football,â&#x20AC;? McCaughan said. Carson said the Tigers would look to inject a little bit of quality into the list in the off-season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We introduced nine to 10 of the under 18s into the seniors list, and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll play in the reserveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grand final. We need about four A-grade quality players to help Scott Hughes, who kicked 100 goals this year. The gap isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too far for us.â&#x20AC;?

Portarlington golf carnival thrills FROM THE

mat

WITH TORQUAY BOWLS CLUB

DESPITE outward appearances, it is business as normal, or as close to normal as possible, on The Esplanade. The clubhouse is a mere shell of its former self as it undergoes a radical makeover that will transform it from a 1960s facility to something far more in touch with the 21st century, and the new breed of bowler it needs to serve. Like any major surgery, this will entail a small about of pain for the longer-term gain. However, the club executive is working hard to keep the pain to a minimum. Already a large marquee has been set up in the carpark to act as a clubhouse and two portable buildings have been strategically located to serve as an office and for food and beverage facilities. Discretely tucked behind the marquee are two toilet blocks, connected up to the sewer system. The new set-up gets its first real test with the Happy Hour to be held weekly in the marquee. A highlight of this will be the return of the Hocking Stuart lucky members draw with jackpots by $50 a week until it is won. As usual, these Friday evening festivities kick off about 4.30 and continue until the barman

calls stumps. The club is still jumping through the administrative hoops of getting a temporary phone connected and hopes to be able to publish details very soon. Meanwhile, display boards have been erected under the shelter just inside the greens’ gate for members to enter names for events. Because of the lack of phone services, members are asked to get their names for entry to social bowls and pennant practice on those sheets, and ensure they appear, or tell someone if they cannot play. Over the next few weeks, we will be accustoming ourselves to our Big Top in readiness for the real thing. Saturday pennant begins on October 5 and the Tuesday competition opens on October 15. On October 6 and 13 the club will hold Try Bowls days for anyone who is interested in getting in on the action. Bowls sets will be available for beginners. Also, the Twilighters begin their new season on October 16 and 17. All members are asked to be patient as we go through the throes of rebuilding the club, but it will be worth it when we reopen about February next year.

THE Carnival of Golf is a highlight on Victoria’s golfing calendar and Portarlington golf columnist Rob Casey (see page 87) reports that Portarlington members who shone at various stages during the carnival were: • Brian Hazell won the Vets Classic A

Winners of the final tournament – mixed Canadian foursomes – at the Portarlington Carnival of Golf, John and Jenny Pearson.

Grade Nett event with a 69 • Stan Hollingsworth and Angela Kiely won the Mixed 4BBB from Max and Jenny Edmanson, both pairs on 45 points, on a count back • Mick and Gavin Whyley won the Men’s Ambrose pairs with a nett 61.75 on a count back from Todd and Dean Sormaz • The Ladies 4BBB was won by Marilyn Mooney and Sandra Paddle with 46 points, while the Men’s event was won by Barrie and Tony Stewart, also with 46 • The Ladies Ambrose Pairs Gross event was won by Jenny Edmanson and Susan Plummer with a 77 • In the Ladies Single Stableford, Marg Burchell gained a 2nd placing with 38 points, whilst Men’s Captain Peter Taylor had his day in the sun to win the Men’s A Grade Stableford event with 37 points from Craig Plummer on 34, whilst Ian Flanders won the C Grade division with 39 points. Rob will report on the Friday to Sunday events next week.

Winner of the first tournament – Portarlington Open Champion Luke Allen with his trophies at the end of the first day of the carnival.
