McCartney leads the way at Bellarine 2050 forum

TOP DOG

BY JAMES TAYLOR

WESTERN Bulldogs coach Brendan McCartney has outlined his approach to leadership in an inspirational address at last week’s Bellarine 2050: Our Place, Our Future forum. In the opening address of the event, held at Suma Park, the ex-Ocean Grove football coach shared some of the lessons he had learned through his involvement with Geelong in the AFL – including the three premierships between 2007 and 2011. The key lesson was not making the

same mistakes at the Bulldogs. “The luckiest experience of my life was to live the generation at Geelong,” he said. “The draft in 1999 taught me more about life in football than anything else.” McCartney said there were many similarities between leading a football club and leading a business. “What I do is no different to what you people do every day.” He said a very important part of leadership was about “knowing where you’re at”.

“It’s not every day – it’s every minute, every hour because as a leader, you can’t afford to have a bad three minutes.” This included not losing your cool at subordinates when things went wrong. “They’re not our family – they’re our staff, they’re people who are lining up to give their best.” He said Geelong had taken too long to develop leaders in the playing ranks when success came later – a problem he took steps to immediately address when he changed clubs – but rated ex-Geelong captain Tom Harley as the best leader he

had ever seen. McCartney’s time working with Harley led him to develop a list of the four things every leader needed, which were: • the capacity to lead by example • you have to know what you’re doing • the capacity to be empathetic and to build relationships • the ability to have conversations. “I never move away from it, ever,” he said. “Why? Because everyone needs a road map, because everyone’s watching you, and you can’t have a bad minute.”

He said teamwork was critical. “At the Bulldogs, I’ve got people I rely on and trust with my life, you’ve got to have that. We all wear the same hat and it looks different on all of us.” Construction industry leadership consultant Barbara Grace also spoke at the forum. The attendees also worked on several projects suggested as crucial for the Bellarine, including the Bellarine Ring Road, electric vehicles, Portarlington Safe Harbour and a commercial shipping facility.

that address homelessness. Let’s see how much we can raise this year. Visit walkinghome.org. au to find out how you can participate or support the event.

Walking Home for homelessness The City of Greater Geelong is proud to support Walking Home, the charity walking event on November 2 designed to raise funds and awareness of homelessness in the Geelong and south west region. On Census night in 2011 there were 585 people in Geelong with “no usual address” and another 56 people in coastal areas from Lorne to the Bellarine Peninsula. These are sobering numbers and as a community it is important we are doing what we can to help people faced night after night without a home. While the city doesn’t provide direct services to people experiencing homelessness, we work closely with a number of agencies in the region to support and facilitate the delivery of services. This year for Walking Home, the City of Greater Geelong has played an active role in the event organising committee, provided marketing support, staff volunteers on the day and a support vehicle. The walk begins in Queenscliff, proceeds along the Bellarine Rail Trail to conclude at Steampacket Gardens at the Geelong Waterfront. The total distance is 37 kilometres but walkers can choose to do a particular section of the walk if preferred. Walkers will reach Geelong Waterfront in the late afternoon and share in a free public event featuring speakers and live entertainment. This year the event will feature a performance by Imogen Brough and entertainment by the Geelong Supercats basketball team. All funds raised in the Walking Home event go toward buying shoes for people experiencing homelessness in our region. In 2012, we had 291 people participating who raised more than $17,000 to support programs

Toast to the Coast 2013 The popular wine festival Toast to the Coast is back again over the Melbourne Cup weekend, November 2-3. There are plenty of host wineries to visit through the festival, with more than 25 venues opening their cellar doors throughout Geelong, the Bellarine, the Moorabool Valley and the Surf Coast. In Geelong, we are lucky to have an abundance of wineries on our doorstep, and the festival weekend is a great opportunity to try out some of the best local drops. It also encourages the community to support local businesses run by individuals who are passionate about creating a top quality product. Not only do the wineries benefit from this weekend festival. Visitors from far and wide come to the Bellarine to taste the wines and experience all the charms this beautiful coastal region has to offer. Many stay for the weekend, frequenting shops, cafés and staying in local accommodation. Toast to the Coast is now in its 12th year running, proving time and again to be one the most popular annual events on the region’s calendar. The City of Greater Geelong has proudly supported this event since its inception in 2001. Toast to the Coast tickets are $40, which includes a commemorative Geelong wine glass and wine tastings at all host wineries – entry is free into all wineries. Tickets are available from GPAC. The best news yet – this week the city is giving away 10 weekend passes online! To enter

Portarlington coastal erosion works The beach at Point Richards near Portarlington has suffered badly from rough weather and tidal surges during the winter months, with the beach washing away and the shoreline retreating to a serious degree. Council environment officers and local coastal engineers have designed a beach conservation measure that is working very well. Around 100 metres of slatted sand fence has been installed and has not only has it arrested the erosion in a relatively short time, it is progressively extending this popular little beach. Sand fences are semi-permeable and placed on the seaward side of primary dunes. They act to accumulate sand and stabilise the beach, and can even act as a useful, low wind break for those using the beach. The beach fences – commonly used in Europe and North America – are expected to become a major asset for local coastal areas. In the case of Point Richards, initially sand was trucked in to reshape the beach’s primary dune and repair the damage cause over winter. The sand fence was then installed to the seaward side. This had an immediate impact, sand and shell began to accumulate both in front and behind the fence at a rate beyond the expectations of council officers and of local residents.

Big field to choose from in mayoral by-election BY JAMES TAYLOR GREATER Geelong voters will have a swathe of contenders to consider when they go to choose the city’s new mayor. Nominations for the postal by-election officially closed on Tuesday, and 16 candidates had applied to stand by the noon deadline. In ballot order, the candidates are: • Lily Stefanovic • Stephen Yewdall • Greg Jones • Stephanie Asher • Darryn Lyons • Greg Lacey • John Mitchell • Kenneth Edward Jarvis • Margrette Lewis • Tom O’Connor • Anthony Aitken • John Smith • Rodger Marsden • Angelo Kakouros • John Robert Irvine • Doug Mann. Why each of the 16 people want the top job should become clearer this afternoon, as the contenders have until noon today to lodge their candidate statements with the Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC). The political horse trading will no doubt already be on in earnest, with the lodgement of indication of preferences closing at noon tomorrow. Ballot packs will be mailed to residents between November 4-7, with all votes to be returned to the VEC by 6pm on November 22

ahead of election day on November 23. People who are unsure who to vote for have been encouraged to attend next month’s Geelong Business Network Mayoral Election Breakfast Forum. Invitations to speak have been extended to all mayoral candidates, and at least half of the contenders have confirmed they will appear at the event. The forum will be held at the Mercure Hotel, corner Gheringhap and Ryrie streets, Geelong on

November 14 at 7.15am for a 7.30pm start. Tickets are $50 per person or $45 each for four or more people, and include a cooked or continental breakfast. RSVPs and payment is essential by close of business on November 11. For more information and bookings, phone Digby Hughes on 5222 7779 or 0419 549 212, or email events@maximpr.com.au. Head to vec. vic.gov.au/current/GeelongNominations.html for mayoral candidates’ contact details.

School welfare officers introduced BY JAMES TAYLOR LEOPOLD and Clifton Springs primary schools will have primary welfare officers (PWO) for the first time next year with the expansion of a program to make Victorian schools a better place to grow and learn. The Coalition government’s commitment to introduce an additional 150 additional Primary Welfare Officers into Victorian government schools by 2014 has now been delivered in full. From the beginning of 2014, more than 800 Victorian government schools will have access to a PWO, with 149 additional schools gaining access to a PWO for the first time in 2014. The PWO program provides schools with funding aimed at boosting attendance and achievement by improving school wide health and wellbeing. The officers undertake a variety of roles, including developing ways to improve student attendance, engagement and participation. They also help deliver intervention programs for students and families, often with the help of community-based service providers. Minister for Education Martin Dixon, South Barwon MP Andrew Katos and Member for Western Victoria David Koch last week announced the program’s expansion to six primary schools in the Geelong region, noting that about extra Victorian schools had benefited from the Coalition’s increased investment in the program since 2011. Mr Dixon commended the work of PWOs. “They do a fantastic job at stamping out bullying and bad behaviour, and addressing mental health and welfare issues. The expansion of this program is crucial in ensuring every student has quick and easy access to a key support person to ensure any problems or issues are addressed and dealt with at the earliest opportunity.” Mr Katos said PWOs played a crucial role in helping the state government achieve its commitment to support students and families. “We know when a student’s health and wellbeing suffers, their ability to learn and reach their full potential suffers.”

Solar power shines on Barwon Heads groups Arts Council bid BY JAMES TAYLOR

BARWON Heads Sustainability Group has thrown the switch to solar and helped a number of community organisations in the town to reduce their energy costs. The group has assisted four not-for-profit organisations – including Barwon Heads Anglican Church and its op shop; Barwon Heads Uniting Church; and Barwon Coast’s heritage centre, The Lobster Pot – to install a solar power system ranging in size from 1.5 to 3kW. The solar systems are expected to generate annual electricity savings of between $600-$1,200 for the organisations. Barwon Heads Sustainability Group convenor Faye Connors said community buildings were influential structures within the town. “Targeting these structures in Barwon Heads for solar PV creates an inspiring sense of public awareness to the importance for renewable energy and reduced carbon dioxide emissions.� The new solar systems were flagged in the 2012 Barwon Heads Sustainability Group plan as a high priority project, which led to a collaboration between sustainability group Future Proofing Geelong and local sustainable energy company City to Surf

Solar+ who matched the government grant dollar for dollar. City to Surf Solar+ owner Christian Pritchett said the company was serious about allowing as many people and organisations in the Geelong region as possible to experience the benefits of solar power through reducing electricity bills and their environmental impact.

“Being not-for-profit organisations, it is important they are able to lead the community and show how a common goal that will benefit the whole community can be achieved without the usual bureaucratic red tape. We were thrilled to match the government grant dollar for dollar as we believe all businesses should support the great work of local communities wherever possible.�

for RSL hall THE Barwon Heads Arts Council will submit a verbal bid to agents this week to find out if they are in a position to purchase the Barwon Heads RSL Hall. The group has garnered significant community support over the last few months in their mission to buy the hall and prevent developers from turning the town asset into a private property. “We’ve received overwhelming community support for the proposal and we’re confident we’ll have the funds in place to make our indicative bid at the end of the week,� Arts Council president Victoria Strachan said. “Once we have put in the indicative bid we will know whether or not we are in the ball park to purchase the hall and if we are, we’ll put in our official expression of interest before October 31.� “If we’re successful in purchasing the property we’ll immediately move to begin fundraising.� Ms Strachan said the Arts Council want to maintain the hall as an asset for Barwon Heads, working in partnership with the RSL to maintain their presence in the town. “As well as using it for the Arts Council we also want to educate young people about the importance of the RSL, the consequences of war and its impact on Australia. “We hope to work with other community groups as well to give local children access to creative education and activities across a number of fields.� Agents are currently seeking expressions of interest for the building around $1 million plus.

Bellarine community health to MOW in Queenscliff BELLARINE Community Health (BCH) is committed to continue its Meals on Wheels (MOW) services to the Queenscliff community. On October 10, BCH announced the closure of its Coorabin aged care facility in Point Lonsdale. In a statement released yesterday BCH said that closure of the Coorabin facility will occur when all residents have relocated to other aged care facilities of their choice.

“Due to this closure, meals will cease to be prepared and delivered from the Coorabin site,� a BCH spokesperson said. The MOW service will continue with new meals preparation arrangements. “BCH, the Victorian Department of Health and the Borough of Queenscliffe are working closely together to ensure continuity of the current MOW service and find a new provider to prepare meals. “BCH will continue to coordinate the MOW

service. In particular BCH will continue to coordinate the volunteers who undertake the very valuable meal delivery role. Clients receiving MOW will not experience any disruption to the service. “BCH will keep MOW clients, volunteers and staff informed about the changes to the service and when they will be introduced.� Any enquiries can be directed to Bellarine Community Health on 5258 0832.

Local author to produce at barn BY TIFFANY PILCHER DISCOVER more about the Bellarine Peninsula and its colourful characters with local author Rick Wilkinson at the Buy Bellarine Produce Barn on Sunday. Mr Wilkinson will appear to discuss and sign copies of his book The Bellarine... via Rambler’s Road, based on the people and stories of the Bellarine Peninsula. Locals and those who love the region will enjoy the tale of his sea change and the fascinating people he has met while exploring his new home.

Originally a geologist, Mr Wilkinson used his qualifications to begin writing about resource industries. He went to London in the 1970s to write for magazines covering oil and gas in the North Sea, Europe, and the Middle East. Returning to Australia in 1980, he settled in Melbourne where he worked as an oil and gas correspondent for The Australian, The Australian Financial Review and Australian Business before turning freelance. He now lives and works from home in Portarlington, contributing to Australian, European and US petroleum magazines.

He has written a number of books on petroleum history and has also written five children’s books. His book The Bellarine... via Rambler’s Road is a departure from his previous work and reflects his genuine enjoyment of the region and its people. The Buy Bellarine Produce Barn’s workshop featuring author Rick Wilkinson will be on October 27 from 10am to noon at Tuckerberry Hill Farm, Becks Road, Drysdale. Portarlington author Rick Wilkinson is appearing at the Buy Bellarine Produce Barn to discuss and sign copies of his book about the region and its interesting characters.

Upgrade coming for road black spot Kids and teens to rock Halloween A SECTION of the Geelong-Portarlington Road will receive a $1.14 million state government upgrade over the next two years. The works between Drakes Road and north of Whitcombes Road in Drysdale are set to reduce the risk of road run off crashes. The works will focus on widening and improving the existing surface of the road, as well as installing safety barriers to shield motorists from roadside hazards. Roadside signage will be upgraded to give motorists a better view in dark conditions and roadside drainage will also be upgraded. Member for Western Victoria David Koch announced the funding on Tuesday. “There have been three road run offs and two head-on crashes in this 1.1 kilometre section between January 2008 and December 2012, resulting in serious injuries,” Mr Koch said. “The most appropriate safety initiatives to

prevent head-on crashes are currently being investigated for inclusion in this project. “Recent crashes on this section of the Geelong-Portarlington Road occurred in wet and dark conditions and this is a focus for the road safety improvements. “We have had successive, record low road tolls in Victoria and we need to keep working hard to ensure that we stay a world leader in road safety,” Mr Koch said. The project is being funded through the $1 billion TAC Safer Road Infrastructure program. This investment is an increase of more than 30 per cent a year on the previous program. “Victorian high-risk road locations will significantly benefit from the upgrades, providing the local community with specific and immediate safety benefits towards reducing road trauma,” Mr Koch said.

BY TIFFANY PILCHER YOUNG people will be dressing up in their silliest, spookiest outfits for the Halloween Fest at the Potato Shed this Saturday. Bellarine youth group Crash Course Productions has organised the music festival in partnership with the City of Greater Geelong (COGG). Throughout the afternoon and into the night a massive lineup of bands will perform on two stages at the Potato Shed. Antagonist, Thorns and Elm Street will head the lineup, with a further 23 bands and performers set to entertain the crowd. There will also be jelly wrestling plus food and drink for sale throughout the afternoon. COGG councillor Jan Farrell said the festival was a great opportunity for young people to get creative

and have fun with friends. “I’m sure there are many young people working on their costumes already. “It will be a very entertaining – and possibly terrifying – sight to see all the young people turning up on the day!” “Crash Course Productions have done a wonderful job getting this festival together once again – I am constantly impressed by the skills, enthusiasm and energy of young people in our region.” This event will be held from 12 noon to 9pm on 26 October. Entry is $20 at the door or $15 for those who dare to dress up in their best Halloween costume. From each door ticket, $1 will be donated to Uniting Prints. This is a fully supervised, all ages, drug, smoke and alcohol free event.

Local tourism boost with new board BY HAMISH BROOKS THE tourism industry has received a boost with the announcement of the official formation of a new tourism board for the region. Great Ocean Road Regional Tourism (GORRT) is being established with the support and recognition of Tourism Victoria and five local government councils of the region – Surf Coast, Colac Otway, Corangamite, Moyne and Warrnambool – to lead the development, marketing and management of tourism for the region. An interim board has been appointed to facilitate a process to establish an inaugural board of five

council-appointed and five industry/skilled directors and an independent executive chairman. The new organisation will have an initial annual budget of more than $1 million for destination marketing, industry development, management and advocacy. Interim board chair and Torquay resident Wayne Kayler-Thomson said that the long awaited establishment of GORRT was a “really positive outcome”. “The Great Ocean Road is already the jewel in the crown of Victoria’s tourism assets and its most visited region by international and domestic visitors.

“The region has the capacity and potential to become Australia’s foremost sustainable tourism region contributing to the economic, community, environmental and cultural health of the region and its destinations. “I congratulate the state and local governments and the industry supporters for their determination, persistence, foresight and vision to establish a new level of collaboration and cooperation for the best interests of the regional industry and community.” The establishment of GORRT will be boosted by the wind up of Shipwreck Coast Tourism and transfer of its resources.

At last month’s council meeting, Surf Coast Shire councillors offered in-principle support for the board subject to due diligence being conducted on Shipwreck Coast’s assets and liabilities. Mr Kayler-Thomson said the net asset and liabilities were effectively zero with staff to be transferred to the new organisation from Shipwreck Coast, with Shipwreck Coast to pay outstanding leave entitlements. The interim board is also overseeing the implementation of marketing and industry development projects valued at $600,000 funded by Tourism Victoria from previously frozen funds allocated to the region.

Celebration week creates a positive energy BY HAMISH BROOKS MUCK up week has been replaced by Celebration Week at Lorne-Aireys Inlet P-12 College in a revolutionary approach that sees school leavers leave the school on a positive note. The school’s business management teacher Cherie Osta said the days of muck up week are over for the school. Ms Osta said she had been working all year with her students on developing their individual businesses to provide a whole school market as a part of the year 12 celebration. “The year 12 students have attended 13 years of schooling, some at this school and some at others. “We need to all honour that. “The whole school is really involved in the week. It’s all about leaving school in positive, giving, wonderful rather than destructive way.” Ms Osta said so successful was last year’s event and so invested in it were the students, that usual

muck up day pranks featuring things such as water balloons and glad wrap were nonexistent. “The kids did not one thing, not even a water balloon. It’s all about taking away that ‘you can’t’ mentality and replacing it with a positive energy.” Event manager and student Issy Beale said the celebration market was a great way to get the business management students to have a go at learning to run their own businesses. “It also provides the whole school community an event to say thank you and farewell to the year 12s.” Ms Osta said the week’s celebrations will finish with a whole-of-school circle with each year 12 student receiving an individual message and a high five as they leave for swot vac and exams.

Community groups vent their opposition to fracking BY JAMES TAYLOR COMMUNITY opposition to fracking in the Geelong region is growing, with three new groups holding a rally last weekend. Frack Free Geelong, Frack Free Bellarine and Frack Free Surf Coast gathered at Geelong’s waterfront as part of a global day of action against fracking, which is used to extract coal seam gas (CSG). The October 19 rally followed recent film nights in Torquay and Geelong. Fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, involves injecting high pressure water and chemicals into a well to break up the rock and release oil or gas to the surface. There is presently a state government

moratorium on CSG mining, but the antifracking groups want it expanded into an outright ban of all fracking practices. Former federal minister Peter Reith is leading a review of the moratorium, and Frack Free Geelong member Anthony Gleeson fears the soon to be completed review will give fracking the green light. “Fracking is not part of anyone’s vision for a clean energy future for Geelong,” he said. “We thought we were safe under the moratorium against fracking. “But with the Reith report, we can now see that this will no longer be the case. “The Napthine government is keen to step up the drilling for gas, and federal

Industry Minister Ian Macfarlane is saying that companies should extract every molecule of gas to boost exports and supply the domestic market.” Gas and oil company Lakes Oil Group has a petroleum exploration permit, PEP 163, that covers all of Torquay and Anglesea and stretches north beyond Waurn Ponds, Moriac and Modewarre. Lakes Oil’s 2013 annual report, released last month, states it has suspended exploration in PEP 163 because of the moratorium. The company has consistently said it is exploring for tight gas, not CSG, in PEP 163; and it does not intend to get involved with CSG.

Final electoral boundaries released BY JAMES TAYLOR RESIDENTS in some suburbs and towns in the Geelong region will be voting for a different set of candidates next year as a result of the reshaping of Victoria’s electoral districts. The Electoral Boundaries Commission (EBC) has released its report into the electoral redivision, which was tabled in Parliament last week. The area between Barwon Heads airport (east of Blackrock and Staceys roads) and the Barwon River was previously in South Barwon, but is now in Bellarine. In its report, the EBC stated that including Barwon Heads in Bellarine was to counter the shift of electors in Whittington and St Albans to Geelong. “As a twin town to Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads has always had reasonable grounds to be included in the same electorate, and its inclusion fits community of interest as well as enabling Bellarine district to have an appropriate number of electors.” South Barwon lost all of

Belmont south of the Barwon River to Geelong to account for the rapid growth in Armstrong Creek, while part of Highton has moved from Geelong to South Barwon. A small sliver of Polwarth voters near Anglesea, north of the intersection of the Great Ocean Road and Forest Road, are now part of South Barwon. People living near Buckley, north of Lake Modewarre, have been moved from South Barwon to Polwarth. The review of electoral boundaries, known as a redivision, aims to give every electorate a roughly equal number of voters (within 10 per cent of the state average) so each vote in an election has the same value. Comparing the existing boundaries with the new boundaries, more than one million people (29.27 per cent of all electors) are in different electoral districts. Head to ebc.vic.gov.au/default. html to read the EBC report or to view an interactive map showing the existing and new boundaries.

Pupils go to water at Spring Creek BY JAMES TAYLOR PUPILS from Surf Coast schools have celebrated National Water Week with a half-day of activities at Torquay’s Spring Creek. The Corangamite Catchment Management Authority (CMA) Waterwatch hosted the annual Creek Connections event as part of National Water Week – which began on October 20 and runs until Sunday – and to also celebrate 20 years of regional water health monitoring program Waterwatch. More 200 grade three and four pupils attended the day, which was unfortunately cut short due to rain. They were welcomed to Spring Creek by Wathaurung elder Bryon Powell, who performed a smoking ceremony and shared his knowledge of Wathaurung culture. Creek Connections raises awareness of the importance of looking after and keeping our catchments healthy. Activities hosted by the region’s many environmental and cultural agencies included tree planting, a recycle relay with the Great Ocean Road Coast Committee, an estuary discovery with Ecologic, learning about the story of Spring Creek

with Corangamite CMA river health staff, estuary science with EstuaryWatch, activities with the Marine and Freshwater Discovery Centre Trailer, and macro invertebrate surveys with Waterwatch. As part of the 20th anniversary, Corangamite CMA will also host a Love Your River event on Saturday from 10am-1pm to recognise and celebrate the outstanding achievements of Waterwatch monitors on the Barwon River. Meet at the canoe launching ramp beside the Geelong Canoe Club, Marnock Road, Newtown – near Balyang Sanctuary. National Water Week aims to raise public awareness and improve understanding of water issues in Australia. The theme for this year is “liveable communities”, and the savewater! alliance has suggested an integrated approach to water management. This looks at all sources of water and local opportunities to use and reuse the precious resource, including rainwater, stormwater and recycled water from wastewater treatment plants. Head to blog.savewater.com.au/2013/10/ national-water-week-2013-liveable-communities for more information.

Road works begin but bigger upgrade coming BY JAMES TAYLOR RESTORATION of a stretch of the Great Ocean Road is about to begin, and plans for a larger upgrade are already under way. Last week, state Roads Minister Terry Mulder said the two-kilometre stretch west of Cape Patton and east of Apollo Bay would be reconstructed to repair potholes and rough sections of pavement following unusually heavy rainfalls this past season. A contract has been awarded to Downer EDI

Works, with reconstruction expected to start in November and be completed before the holiday season. Mr Mulder said the works were part of the state government’s $170 million repair and restore package. “The Victorian government has recognised that greater maintenance is required to address the condition of Victoria’s roads. “Once these works are complete, motorists will enjoy a safer, smooth and even road surface.” Meanwhile, VicRoads has begun work on the

scope of the $50 million upgrade of the Great Ocean Road, with a project plan expected to be released early next year. Corangamite federal MP Sarah Henderson said $15 million of federal funding was available for the project in this financial year. The five-year upgrade – to be jointly funded by the state and federal governments – involves road surface maintenance, improvements to roadside cuttings and drainage, restoration of structures such as bridges, culverts and retaining walls, drainage and resurfacing works.

Ms Henderson said she would work closely with Mr Mulder and Wannon federal MP Dan Tehan to allow local councils, the G21 Geelong Region Alliance and the community to provide feedback on their priorities for the upgrade. “The Great Ocean Road is the centrepiece of our regional $2.1 billion tourism industry which supports 10,000 local jobs. “We are committed to building the roads of the 21st century as part of our plan to build a stronger economy and a stronger society.”

Exciting week for Surf Coast Striders NEXT week is shaping up as an exciting time for the Surf Coast Striders. The group of 12 Torquay women raises funds through the year to support Cancer Council Victoria’s programs, with participation in the Surf Coast Relay For Life the high point of their year. The 24-hour relay will be held on the Surf Coast Shire’s recreational precinct, Banyul Warri Fields, on the November 30-December 1 weekend. The striders team will host a tea party for cancer survivors and carers after they have opened the event with the traditional lap of honour at the oval. But team member Judy Campbell will be looking forward to this Saturday and next Tuesday as special days for her. On Saturday, Judy will welcome home daughter Alexandra, who has spent the past 18 months living in London, and on Tuesday they will be enjoying the annual Melbourne Cup Luncheon fundraiser the striders are putting on at the Wyndham Resort in Torquay. “The Surf Coast Striders got started about 10 years ago when friends Trish Curry, Debbie Slater and Jill Hyslop used to walk together,” Judy said. “I joined in 2005, the year I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had chemotherapy and radiotherapy to treat it. “I always knew I would be alright as at the time I was working as a medical secretary for a

Geelong surgeon. “You get to see a lot of success stories and there’s more good outcomes than bad,” Judy said. “The people of Geelong and the Surf Coast get a pretty good service from the medical specialists there.” Judy now works as office coordinator for Hospice Foundation in Geelong. It funds organisations such as Barwon Health and St John of God for palliative care. She said members of the striders still walk together every evening. To book a table at the Surf Coast Striders Melbourne Cup Luncheon in the Zeally Bay Function Room at the Wyndham Resort, Torquay, contact Cathy Howard on 5267 4718 or 0414 796 848 or Judy Campbell on 5261 9908 or 0438 620 266. The luncheon starts at midday and goes through until 5pm and is only $45.00. The annual fundraising event begins with a free drink and raffle ticket upon arrival, and a delicious two course lunch is served during the afternoon. The big screen is set up to enable an uninterrupted telecast of race day, with special emphasis on the running of ‘the Cup’. The day will also feature sweeps, games, a silent auction, the raffle and a Fashions on the Field event. Last year the Surf Coast Striders raised $12,092.95 for Relay for Life.

BETTER customer service and more information will help improve public transport for people with disabilities, the elderly, young people, parents with young children, rural Victorians and people from non-English speaking backgrounds, according to a report by the Public Transport Ombudsman (PTO). The Closing the Accessibility Gap report looked at 172 accessibility complaints made to the PTO during 2011 and 2012. The research focused on service provision and identified low-cost service and information initiatives which were likely to have a swift impact on improving accessibility, rather than long-term major infrastructure changes. It revealed that people who had no choice but to rely on public transport regularly were often unable, reluctant or unwilling to complain when things went wrong. “We know from our consultations and research

that complaints about accessibility issues are significantly under reported,” Public Transport ombudsman Janine Young said. “However, the data we have gathered shows the systemic ways we are letting down a significant number of public transport users.” Case studies show commuters being ignored on platforms when they needed assistance, told their complaints were lodged incorrectly or were invalid because the operator had technically complied with standards. Other stories highlight inappropriate and disrespectful treatment by operator staff and authorised officers who did not recognise individual needs. Ms Young urged public transport users with disabilities or other accessibility challenges to speak up when something went wrong. To contact the PTO, phone 1800 466 865, email enquiries@ptovic.com.au or head to ptovic.com.au.

Winchelsea highway works in spotlight BY JAMES TAYLOR TENDERS have opened for works to upgrade the Princes Highway near Winchelsea. Construction companies interested in being contracted for the work have been encouraged to submit their bids under the VicRoads tender process. The upgrade includes a new bridge over the Barwon River and traffic signals at both Hesse Street and Deans Marsh Road to provide safer passage across the Princes Highway. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Infrastructure and Regional Development Warren Truss said the works were an important advancement in improving the highway between Melbourne and south western Victoria. “After two and a half years of detailed planning and extensive community consultations, the upgrade through Winchelsea from Austin Street to Deans Marsh Road is now full steam ahead. “This project is part of a commitment by both governments to deliver a safer, more efficient road for freight and commuter traffic, as well as encourage tourism to popular coastal and inland destinations.” Victorian Minister for Roads

Terry Mulder said that once a contractor was selected, work would start on-site next year and be completed in 2015. “The project will stimulate the local economy by creating new construction jobs and providing capacity for future growth and development in the town. “Once the project is complete, access to important community facilities such as the post office and the shopping centre will be easier and safer.” This work is part of the $171 million duplication of the highway between Waurn Ponds and Winchelsea, jointly funded by the federal and state governments. Last week, the state government also announced Winchelsea-Deans Marsh Road would receive a $2.5 million upgrade under the Safer Road Infrastructure program. Mr Mulder said there had been nine run-off road crashes in the five-year period between July 2007 and June 2012, resulting in one fatality and multiple serious injuries on the 22.5 kilometre stretch of road. The upgrades will begin in 2014, and include the installation of about 4.7 kilometres of guard rail and 2.5 kilometres of wire rope safety barrier, resealed shoulders, and tree and vegetation removal where necessary.

New CMA board members BY DEAN WEBSTER THE state government has announced the appointment of one new chairperson and 17 new members to the boards of Victoria’s 10 Catchment Management Authorities (CMAs). CMAs task is to ensure the protection and sustainable development of land, vegetation and water resources within their individual management areas. The Corangamite Catchment Management Authority (CCMA) manages a region stretching from Surf Coast, Geelong and the Bellarine to Ballarat and along the coast to Peterborough. Timboon farmer Nicholas Renyard is a new appointment to the CCMA. He joins reappointed chair Alice Knight, who welcomed Mr Renyard’s appointment to the board. “I’m delighted to welcome Nick. “He’s active in the dairy industry and the wider community, and it’s good to have a representative from that area of the catchment,” Ms Knight said. “I look forward to working with him and having someone who will bring a younger perspective to our board. “I also welcome back the three current members that have been reappointed, Richard (Riordan), Marie (Thornton) and Hugh (Stewart).” Minister for Water Peter Walsh said nine chairs and 20 members had also been reappointed to the state’s CMAs. “I look forward to working with this diverse group of local people and thank them for putting up their hands to help manage and protect Victoria’s waterways and natural environment.” Minister for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith said CMAs conducted valuable on ground work in their local

catchments, which helped to sustain Victoria’s ecosystems and contributed significantly to agricultural productivity and environmental health. “CMAs have an important role to play in preparing and coordinating the implementation of regional catchment

strategies and advising government of regional priorities on land, biodiversity and waterway management,” Mr Smith said. “I’d also like to thank the people who held these roles previously for the contribution they have made to Victoria’s catchments.”

PFFs in Barwon South West will be based at DEPI and Parks Victoria work centres in Anglesea, Lorne, Forrest, Gellibrand, Colac, Heywood, Casterton, Dartmoor, Nelson, Mt Eccles and Portland.

region and across the state if required. “All of the 77 seasonal project fire fighters for the Barwon South West region will be operational by mid-December and are a mix of returning and new fire fighters.” DEPI and Parks Victoria employ about 600 PFFs across the state each year. The state government has also released the final fire operations plan that shows where fire preparedness and prevention activities will be carried out on public land over the next three years. Two planned burns north of Anglesea were supposed to begin earlier this week, but the DEPI and Parks Victoria called them off because of wet weather. For more information about planned burns head to depi.vic.gov.au/burns or phone the Victorian Bushfires Information Line on 1800 240 667.

ON THE BEAT Celebrating 10 years of NHW in Torquay and Jan Juc Plaques were presented to seven longstanding supporters of Torquay Jan Juc Neighbourhood Watch (NHW). The volunteers have worked diligently since March 2003 . They are Vern and Joan Stott, Alan James, Maie Zorica, Jennie Hergstom, Bob Dickensen and Margaret Glover. Presentation Certificates and gifts were made by Sgt. Brian McKiterick, officer in charge at Torquay Police and Torquay ward councillor Rose Hodge from the Surf Coast Shire in appreciation for services fulfilled. The main speaker was Leading Senior Constable Andrew King, police NHW co-ordinator for Geelong and the Surf Coast, who related how, 10 years ago, he had called a public meeting to discuss setting up a NHW area committee based in Torquay. There had been enough interest and public support to do this and all of the people who received the awards have been involved continuously since then. Most have delivered NHW Newsletters or distributed community safety information at various events (Safe Plate Days, High tide Festival, etc) A plaque and gift was also presented to NHW Co-ordinator, David Cheatley, for his fine leadership of the group for the past 6 years. Thanks to the Bendigo Bank, Through Torquay Community Enterprise for a Community Grant to cover the cost of this event. The vision of Neighbourhood Watch - Growing Safer Communities Together Our mission - to lead and educate the community in safety, security and crime prevention in partnership with police and other organisations Three Pillars Engagement: promoting crime prevention and community safety initiatives to communities

With Torquay / Jan Juc Neighbourhood Watch

• Develop the capacity and capability of NHW-led community groups to state and local governments, Victoria Police and leaders of Victorian private sector organisations. • Develop a volunteer work force that is representative of Victorian communities. • Leading community groups in supporting specific localized initiatives that promote crime prevention and community safety. Education: educate Victorian communities, stakeholders, NHW volunteers in best practice approaches to crime prevention and community safety • Develop a program of education to support volunteer workforce activities. • Collect, analyse, disseminate and share information regularly. • Deliver a range of community education, crime prevention and community safety programs at local levels. Partnerships: develop partnerships to deliver an inclusive community based and community safety focused crime prevention organisation. • Develop new, and strengthen and build on existing partnerships. Contact us by email at nhwgreatergeelong@ gmail.com. October/ November – Community Safety Month During October, Neighbourhood Watch has been focusing on prevention of number plate theft right across Victoria by offering fitting of one way security screws. Vehicle owners are encouraged to take advantage of this free service to reduce the risk of number plate theft. Theft of vehicle registration plates is a problem facing our community. Increases in fuel prices undoubtedly lead to a spike in registration plate theft. The stolen plates

will then be used in petrol drive-offs from service stations and other offences. Once plates are secured, it is more difficult for thieves to remove them and they will normally move on. Avoid the inconvenience of stolen registration plates and the cost of replacing them – secure your vehicle’s registration plates with one-way security screws. Torquay / Jan Juc NHW has organised to have this service provided at Bunnings Torquay on November 2 from 9.30am –2.30pm. Your gold coin donation will be appreciated. SES and CFA (subject to emergencies on the day) will be there and Lions will provide a sausage sizzle. There is crime on the Surf Coast A reminder to be alert – report suspicious activity to 000. Two thefts of motor cars - in Torquay (the car was located in Bellbrae completely destroyed by fire) and Jan Juc. Several thefts from motor cars: majority of cars parked in driveway and were left unlocked. Property stolen included surfboard, GPS, wallet, mobile phone and coins. Property damage: Torquay and graffiti in Jan Juc Burglary commercial: from a building site State Highway patrol blitz on road work zone speedsters Victoria Police will be getting tough on speeding drivers who ignore road work zone speed restrictions. Assistant Commissioner Robert Hill said there was a tendency for some motorists to ignore posted speed limits when travelling through restricted road work zones. “People working in these zones have been identified as some of our most vulnerable road users and Victoria Police is committed to ensuring

their safety. On the spot fines for crime related to alcohol From July 1, 2012, the following fines related to offences inside licensed premises and the public area have been operating. As a result, there has been an impact on anti-social behaviour within the Geelong PSA and the coastal areas. The Geelong Liquor Accord members (which include the local hotels, clubs, police and the City of Greater Geelong) have been provided with the new penalties. The penalties can be applied immediately to persons aged 16 years and older. It must be highlighted that a police officer in particular circumstances can provide three penalty notices at any one time on the spot. Riotous or offensive behaviour: $563 Indecent, obscene or offensive language: $282 Drunkenness: $563 Drunk and disorderly: $704 Drunk and disorderly (second offence): $1408 Disorderly conduct: $563 Damage to property: $282 Underage consumption or possession of alcohol: $70 Supply alcohol to underage person: $845 Production of false identification: $282 Failure to leave licensed premises when drunk, violent or quarrelsome: $704 Failure to abate noise: $704 Contravene a direction to move on: $282 (applicable when requested by police to leave/ vacate the area when committing an offence, breaching the peace or it is anticipated that the person will commit either) Possess/carry/use a controlled weapon (knife or similar) without lawful excuse: $1000 - in the vicinity of a liquor licensed premises: $2000.

AMF goes off for another year BY ALI DEANE THE Anglesea Music Festival is over for another year, but the memories made and friendships formed over the weekend will last a lifetime. Mother Nature really turned it on for the community festival that saw Brian Cadd, Sandi Thom, Dallas Frasca and a hoard of artists rock the town of Anglesea from Friday afternoon into Sunday evening. Festival organiser Karren Stoneham said the weekend had been extremely big, kicking off with bumper crowds on Friday night. “The whole event was just unreal. “Sandi Thom was just amazing, Cleveland Blues went off, and the comedy on Saturday night was hilarious. “Dallas Frasca was absolutely amazing, they rocked, and packed out the place. “And Brian Cadd was just a real showman, he’s a legend – he had the audience totally enthralled and it was a great ending to the festival. “Everyone was out to have fun and a good time.

“We had our local diehards that come every year and heaps of festival-goers from out of town. “The people that come to this festival become a big festival family – everyone parties together with the artists and it’s just brilliant.” Ms Stoneham said other popular drawcards had been the bubble blowers for the kids, the buskers competition, Jay Hoad’s didgeridoo workshops, the Little Stevies’ harmony workshops as well as the Baptist Church’s feel-good gospel morning. The festival attracted over 4,500 to Anglesea across the three days, down slightly on last year’s 5,300. Ms Stoneham thanked everyone who had been part of AMF 2013, and announced that the festival would most likely become biannual. “We’ve only got a small committee, and we would love more support on board and more volunteers. So unless things change, we will be back in 2015.” If you are an artist, sponsor or volunteer who would like to be part of the next Anglesea Music Festival, head to angleseamusicfestival.com.au with your expression of interest.

Local garages overflow with bargains BY HAMISH BROOKS

Surf Coast and Bellarine residents have shown themselves to be both hoarders and “divesters” with many primed to hold garage sales this Saturday as part of a nationwide push to keep old and unused items out of landfill.

Anglesea’s Lauren Watt is holding a garage sale during the Garage Sale Trail on Saturday with this comfy couch and a number of smaller items (some examples inset) on the market.

THE Garage Sale Trail event has attracted residents from across Geelong, the Surf Coast and the Bellarine Peninsula who are looking to offload some of their older possessions. Anglesea resident Lauren Watt is having a sale with her partner – The Mick and Loz Bought a Tiny House Sale – the name of which explains their motivation for holding it. “We’ve just moved house and through the process of moving we’ve identified a lot of stuff we can just get rid of. We’ve got all sorts of smaller items as we’ve just downsized but we’ve also got furniture and surfboards.” Ms Watt said when she heard about the Garage Sale Trail it was “all too easy” and it prompted her to have her first ever garage sale. “We’ve got about 50 things for sale and most of the stuff is smaller but we’ve got a couple of ‘big ticket items’ – a three-seater couch and the surfboards – that we’ll be looking to get a bit more money for.” Keeping in the spirit of the community events, Ms Watt and her partner Mick are having a sausage sizzle to keep some food up to hungry “garagistas” browsing the regions sales for a bargain. This year is the first that Barwon Regional Waste Management Group and member councils, Queenscliffe, Geelong, Colac Otway and Surf Coast

are participating in the Garage Sale Trail. It has proved to be very popular with over 30 sales registered in the Surf Coast alone and more people signing up every day. It is free to get involved and registration is open to anyone who’s up for a day of fun, including households, schools, community groups and charities. Buyers can plan their shopping day by searching what sales are nearby and creating a personalised “treasure trail” of sales and items to check out on their mobile phone on the big day. Event ambassador and Blues Train proprietor Hugo T Armstrong – whose home is a monument to the valuable miscellany that can be acquired at garage sales – is enthusiastic about the potential bargains on offer at this weekend’s sales following successful purchases in the past. “I... bought an old clock for a few dollars that I had valued in the hundreds, there’s always a great bargain and you meet very interesting people, I urge everyone to get involved.” Registration is via garagesaletrail.com.au and includes a seller webpage, as well as tips about how to grab a bargain. See page 105 for a list of sales locations and times (including for The Mick and Loz Bought a Tiny House Sale) for the Garage Sale Trail on October 26.

Ocean Grove has a ball at Harambee Muzik Festivalle BY TIFFANY PILCHER OCEAN GROVE was treated to a day of sunshine and good times at the inaugural Our Lady Star of the Sea Primary School Harambee Muzik Festivalle on Saturday. A host of local and Melbourne bands including The Violet Ivyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, The Kite Machine and The Mongolian Fishmongers took to the stage entertaining crowds with a mix of rock, pop, jazz, swing and more. There was also music trivia, a jumping castle to keep the kids entertained and an all-day barbecue, fairy floss and ice cream to keep their energy levels up. The money raised from the event will go towards learning resources for students at the school. Our Lady Star of the Sea Parents and Friends Association (PFA) member Therese Bourke said although this was the first time they held the event, it went off with a bang. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really successful, everyone had a great time and was raving about it afterwards, not to mention we had absolutely perfect weather too. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We sold 249 tickets but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t include children so we were thrilled with how many people came along. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think the reason it worked so well was because it had a really great community feel, the bands were great and there was lots and lots of dancing, you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask for more.â&#x20AC;? Ms Bourke said the event was created by the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s PFA president Paul Smith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was all Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision, he had the idea and brought it to the PFA and it just went from there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He did such a fantastic job, he even researched the date to make sure it was around the full moon so we would have the great weather that we had. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There were a number of people helping but he really oversaw the whole event and it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been possible without him.â&#x20AC;?

Lamb and kid mortality project detecting disease early BY DEAN WEBSTER THE Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) is working to help reduce lamb and kid deaths by identifying disease outbreaks early with the Lamb and Kid Mortality Surveillance project. DEPI Ballarat district veterinary officer Dr

Natarsha Williams said lamb and kid mortality accounts for considerable production losses in sheep and goat herds across Victoria. “As part of the project, DEPI are investigating where and why these losses are happening,” Dr Williams said. “The information is then used to develop strategies

G21 takes the stage at OECD conference

to reduce losses and increase productivity and profitability across the board.” Dr Williams said that in the past three years of the project, results indicate 20 per cent of lambs and kids die before weaning and 60 per cent of deaths occur before marking. Worms (internal parasites) are a large cause of disease and death in this age group of animals. “DEPI will investigate the death of any lamb or kid that happens on a commercial farm; a post-mortem is performed and samples sent away to the laboratory to help identify cause of death. “In addition, abortions in ewes and does can be investigated in this project. “The investigation is free and the farmer is given a written report which includes the findings, including the likely cause of death and what can be done to avoid or treat new cases in the future.” Dr Williams said unfortunately in some cases a diagnosis can’t always be determined. The criteria that make a lamb or kid eligible for investigation includes: • single or more deaths in lambs or kids • minimum four days of age and up to two weeks after weaning • maximum of two animals can be necropsied per outbreak • more deaths can be investigated if the initial testing fails to determine the cause of death • if the signs are different from those observed previously. If you have a potential case for this project please contact your local DEPI animal health officer or district veterinary officer, or ring the DEPI customer service centre on 136 186 and an officer in your area will return your call as soon as possible.

BY JAMES TAYLOR THE achievements of the G21 Geelong Region Alliance were touted at a prestigious international conference held in Italy this week. The G21 region was one of only 10 ruralurban economic case studies – and the only one in the southern hemisphere – undertaken by the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) for a major research project, which included an OECD study tour in August last year. G21 chief executive officer Elaine Carbines and Regional Development Victoria’s Dr Chris McDonald attended the invitation-only conference in Bologna, Italy, and Ms Carbines made a presentation on the G21 region model. “Even on the international stage G21 distinguishes itself from other regional models by being a well-supported and successful community partnership with good relationships across all levels of government,” Ms Carbines said. “The OECD is very interested in what we have achieved here in the G21 region and is trying to understand the formula. “The truth is G21 hasn’t been successful overnight. It has been a combination of hard work, commitment and good-will by our five councils, other government, member organisations and the community over many years.”

Letters Preserving a pleasant Hon. Terry Mulder, MP sheltered walk Minister for Public Transport Minister for Roads

Dear Editor, The Queenscliffe Community Association (QCA) agrees that the walking track from the pier to the ferry terminal does need some upgrading, such as re-surfacing similar to other paths in the parks. QCA would not like to see any hard surfacing or extensive loss of vegetation. This is a very pleasant sheltered walk and the area is becoming a frequent habitat for small birds such as fairy wrens and honeyeaters. Some weeding and re-planting is needed, especially along the path edges and hopefully an upgrade will encourage more ferry foot passengers to leave their cars in the Weeroona Parade area and walk this pleasant path. QCA feels that maintaining the naturalness and stability of this foreshore is important. Joan Kenwood President Queenscliffe Association Inc.

Mayoral information Dear Editor,

ANDREW KATOS MP

Member for South Barwon District

Please feel free to contact me to discuss any State Government concerns you may have. Electorate Office: 152 High St Belmont 3216 Phone: 5244 2288 Fax: 5244 2327 Email:andrew.katos@parliament.vic.gov.au Authorised by: A Katos 152 High St Belmont

I attended the mayoral information session held recently at the Geelong Council. This forum was to inform prospective mayoral candidates about the role of mayor and the responsibilities of councillors and council. To deal with the challenges facing Geelong and district, we need to elect a mayor with leadership skills, ability, ethical standards and vision. We need all councillors to commit to pulling together like we have never seen before in Geelong. We need unprecedented support for the new mayor, for the common good of the City of Greater Geelong. It is a difficult task facing the 170,000 electors to choose the best possible candidate for this challenging role. To help us decide and give candidates the best opportunity to present themselves, we need to

provide a forum, independently and professionally run by the council. We need to understand the candidates’ motivation for standing, background, vision, ethical standards, their understanding of the mayoral role and the Local Government Act. The city’s chief executive officer Steven Griffin agreed to consult with all councillors with the view to providing such a forum. This would provide another opportunity to hear from candidates and complement any other proposed forum. The council needs to provide the venue, extensive advertising and an independent professional facilitator. I would expect the community would respond in large numbers and very much appreciate this opportunity provided by council. Former mayor City of Glen Eira Helen Whiteside Clifton Springs

A worthy decision? Dear Editor, The Napthine government’s plans to remove the requirement for roadworthy checks on cars under either three or five years old could result in more dangerous vehicles on our roads, and may lead to buyers of used cars being ripped off by dodgy sellers. The Napthine government’s reforms – yet to be implemented – will remove protection for Victorian motorists that ensures cars on our roads are safe to drive and buyers aren’t being sold a lemon. The only time motor vehicles are checked in Victoria is when a transfer occurs. The changes by Denis Napthine will mean some vehicles will not receive a roadworthy check until they have travelled over 100,000 kilometres. Cars under five years old are not immune to defects, and the current roadworthy system ensures safe vehicles are on our roads, protecting Victorian motorists and their families. Luke Donnellan MP Shadow Minister for Roads, Road Safety and the TAC

A heartfelt thanks for support Dear Editor, Thank you to the big hearted people of Victoria for your generous support of the Heart Foundation Big Heart Appeal and especially to the wonderful volunteer doorknock collectors who so generously gave their time. As Australia’s leading heart health charity, the majority of our funding comes from kind individuals, so we’re deeply appreciative of the support given to us by so many Australians during September. Every donation to the Big Heart Appeal helps in the fight against heart disease, which is the number one cause of death in Australia, killing one person every 24 minutes. The generous response we have received from local communities in Victoria has helped us achieve over $670,000 of our $741,000 fundraising target for Victoria. These donations will save lives and make world class research possible. If one of our big hearted volunteer collectors missed you during September, you can still show how big your heart is by donating online at heartfoundation.org.au/BigHeart or calling 1800 55 22 55. Thank you for making a difference in the fight against heart disease by supporting our Big Heart Appeal. Diana Heggie Chief Executive Officer, Heart Foundation Victoria

Winter hibernation over for snakes, people THE arrival of spring weather means that people are getting outdoors at the same time that Victoria’s snakes are starting to become more active. Senior scientist from the Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) Arthur Rylah Institute Nick Clemann said snakes are emerging from their winter hibernation to bask in the sun and start moving about to look for food and a mate. “Spring means more people are out walking their dogs, cycling, bushwalking, enjoying parks and gardening so, depending on where they live and walk, they are quite likely to encounter a snake. “Snakes are more common in areas around the urban fringe or in rural areas, but they do turn up surprisingly close to the city, especially around watercourses and in parkland.” “The most frequently encountered snakes around Melbourne are tiger snakes and lowland copperheads.” “In drier areas, eastern brown snakes are common and an occasional red-bellied black snake is also encountered.”

“All four species are dangerously venomous, but it is rare for them to bite people. “Being aware that snakes may be around, and being informed about how to react to them, are the most important aspects of managing snakes.” Some key points to remember about living in an area with snakes: • if you see a snake – keep calm and try to move yourself, anyone with you and your pets away from the snake • never touch or attempt to capture or hurt snakes – instead call DEPI on 136 186 for further advice, or call a licensed snake catcher • have a spring clean and clean up around the house and cut lawns regularly – snakes are attracted to shelter such as piles of rocks and timber, sheets of metal, or building materials • undertake first aid training, ensure your first aid kit contains several compression bandages, and if someone is bitten, call 000 immediately • snakes are protected under the Wildlife Act 1975. It is illegal to capture, kill or harm them. Bites can occur when people try to kill snakes.

Grab a grant for National Youth Week BY JAMES TAYLOR YOUNG people looking to organise events for National Youth Week 2014 can now apply for grants to help kickstart their plans, with applications opening last week. The state and federal governments are providing funding for the grants as proud supporters of the annual, week-long celebration of Australia’s young people. National Youth Week will take place between April 4-13 next year. Grants of up to $2,000 are available to assist groups of young people working with a local organisation, council or school, to organise and run activities of their choice. Examples of previously funded projects include: • arts focused events, photography exhibitions, mural creation and film competitions • cultural days and community festivals including live bands, stalls and competitions • sporting events such as soccer tournaments, skate, BMX and basketball competitions

• workshops and forums that promote a community focus on issues of concern to young people including body image, climate change, mental health and wellbeing. Zac Slattery, the 17-year-old student appointed as Victoria’s National Youth Week Member for 2014, said that he was looking forward to participating in the week’s initiatives and would encourage young people to speak up about things they care about. “There’s so much support for young people in Australia and it’s great to know that what we have to say is being listened to.” Victorian Minister for Youth Affairs Ryan Smith said the week provided communities with a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge the contributions of young people, listen to their views and support them to organise events that showcase their talent, creativity and energy. “National Youth Week puts the spotlight on young people and recognises the diverse skills, knowledge and ideas young people contribute to their local communities. It gives young people the chance to make their voices heard and really make an impact.

“This year more than 25,000 young people across Victoria took part in the National Youth Week activities and I’m hoping we can get even more people to participate next year.”

Applications for the grants close on November 20. Head to youthcentral.vic.gov.au/nyw for more information.

Slow down in six languages

THIS YEAR

LAST YEAR

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

MELBOURNE Victory fans are urged to slow down in six different languages in the latest collaboration between the Transport Accident Commission (TAC) and the A-league team. The new campaign features French, Arabic, Portuguese, Italian, Greek and English, as six Melbourne Victory players explain in their native language how control is just as important on the pitch as it is on the roads. Launching the campaign at AAMI Park earlier this month, Minister for Multicultural Affairs Nicholas Kotsiras said the multilingual advertisement will be screened at Victory home games this season and as part of SBS’s A-league television coverage. “The TAC’s partnership with Melbourne Victory has given us this opportunity to communicate with culturally and linguistically diverse audiences across Victoria.” The players featured in the advertisement are Adama Traore (French), Andrew Nabbout (Arabic), Gui Finkler (Portuguese), Francesco Stella (Italian), Kosta Barbarouses (Greek) and Mark Milligan (English). Another new advertisement reminding fans of the Slow Down and Stay In Control message, features new Victory captain Mark Milligan controlling the ball on-pitch in slow-motion. Milligan will wear number five this season,

coinciding with the TAC’s recent Wipe off 5 speed campaign. “Speed continues to be one of the major causes of fatal crashes in Victoria and I’m proud to help TAC share this message encouraging young Victorian men to slow down,” Mr Milligan said. “Young men aged 18 to 35 form the majority of the Victory fan base and this is why our partnership with TAC is so important, to help reduce

tragedy on our roads.” The launch coincided with the start of the A-league season and a new three-year agreement between TAC and Melbourne Victory to the end of the 2015-16 season. Reducing speed is one of the key actions of Victoria’s Road Safety Strategy 2013-2022. To view the advertisements head to youtube.com/ tac and to read the road safety strategy and action plan, visit roadsafety.vic.gov.au.

to revisit QMF BY TIFFANY PILCHER

Roots legend John Butler will take the Queenscliff Music Festival stage for the first time in a decade in November.

THE sun will rise over the bay once again for the John Butler Trio as they return to the Queenscliff Music Festival (QMF) next month for the first time in 10 years. The performance will be a singalong trip down memory lane with the 21-time nominee and five-time ARIA award winning trio holding off the release of their upcoming album until next year. “We smashed it out last year but it wasn’t the right time, it’s getting mixed now but we still don’t want to put it out just yet,” the band’s namesake and director John Butler said. “We took a more bare bones, reduced approach to the song writing and we did it together because when I’m alone I miss that experiential musical movement that I have with the trio. “They’re really tight songs, really bold and beautiful with lots of cool new sounds that we’ve been experimenting with.” He said three key events from the last few years informed the forthcoming album. He went on a family road trip across the Kimberly, became more involved in environmental activism and his grandmother and Butler family matriarch passed away. “She gave me my grandpa’s guitar,

I was named for him and it was my first guitar so I have a lot to thank her for. There’s a song on the album, ‘Cold Wind’ that’s just for her. “The more I grow the more my writing changes, in the first seven to 10 years I was just getting things out that I felt I needed to get out. “It was very literal and whatever was on my mind but now I think with a few well chosen and carefully crafted sentences you can say a lot more.” The QMF performance is one of the first with the band’s latest lineup featuring Grant Gerathy on drums filling the space left by the recent departure of Nicky Bomba. Butler said he’s managed to find yet another perfect fit for the group which has found continued success despite changing faces nine times over the course of five albums. “When we make a change it’s a real alchemy and it takes a lot of energy – just ask my wife, she’ll tell you she shares me with another woman and that woman is the trio. It works though because it’s a true collaboration, I’m the captain of the ship but I’m not the ship and I’m not the ocean. “I can only steer the ship so much and the ocean will always have her way.” The Queenscliff Music Festival will be held over November 22, 23 and 24. For the full lineup, playing times and tickets head to qmf.net.au.

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

JON HELMER

It’s Mac time THE Yarra Valley is well known for producing fantastic wines and its beautiful scenery is truly stunning to behold for anyone visiting. Within this region are the many sub-regions that all have their own unique idiosyncrasies when it comes to wine production. The flatter, lower regions tend to have red soils producing wines that are a bit loose-knit, as opposed to the higher, cooler areas where the grey soils produce more focus and restraint in the resultant wines. Regions such as Coldstream, Gruyere, Wesburn, Yarra Junction, Hoddles Creek, and Woori Yallock obviously all possess and express their own style, but it takes time to learn what makes each site tick so to speak, so as to properly harness that expression. Some weeks ago I attended a master class on the new wine releases by celebrated Yarra Valley winemaker Mac Forbes, whose detailed knowledge of the Yarra Valley and the many sub regional wine zones contained within is very much worthy of note. His first vintage was at the age of 18 in France, where he went on to gain a “sense of place” when relating to wine, and a respect for what it takes to create the kind of wines that stand the test of time, that is, the classics. Upon his return to the Yarra Valley in 2004, he noticed that the importance of sub regional uniqueness and expression was largely ignored at the time, so he set about the challenge of discovering the intricacies of the many different vineyard sites in the Yarra Valley, releasing wines under his own Mac Forbes label. Looking around nowadays, there’s been a quantum shift in focus relating to vineyard and winemaking practices with a heavy emphasis on respecting the environment via sustainable viticulture and a “less is more” approach in the winery as winemakers seek greater fruit purity, detail, balance and site expression. This is something that Mac has championed from the start and his wines are testament to this and his ongoing development and experience with the many different sub regions and what they can bring to the table with each vintage. His winery is located in Healesville and his crop of new wines is looking really good and the smart new packaging reflects this sophisticated “less is more” approach. Top stuff!

Mac Forbes Yarra Valley Pinot Noir 2012 ($30) This is a terrific entry level Pinot from Mac that is stylish and fresh, being a blend of all the declassified barrels from all the sites that Mac uses. For all the very valid arguments made about site expression etcetera, it’s this blend of the regions that makes the case for easy drinking as it revels in rose/strawberry/ floral aromatics and sappy/fleshy mouth-feel with an edge of refreshing acidity. Overall, there’s a lovely feminine elegance in regard to the weight and finish of the wine making you come back for another glass. I love this, more please.

McLean’s art transforming lives BY ALI DEANE SURF Coast artist Mike McLean is using his art to transform public spaces and turn young lives around. McLean has become the name behind many large scale street murals in Melbourne, Geelong, the Bellarine and Surf Coast, and he’s inspiring a new generation of creative minds at Diversitat Youth Education. His use of colour, stencils and obvious talent with line work has seen his vibrant pieces find their way into the collections of Jesinta Campbell, Megan Gale, Lauren Phillips, Sheridyn Fisher and Lindy Klim, from London to New York. “I was very lucky. I had very enthusiastic art teachers in high school. I wasn’t that serious about it, but then I found myself really into it, and I haven’t looked back,” McLean said. “I absolutely love producing murals, purely because they’re on display for the community, it’s bringing the art gallery onto the street, and you get such a sense of pride.” Prominent pieces include murals at Oberon High

School, Drysdale’s Potato Shed, TUS coffee in Torquay, the Warralily Armstrong Creek sales office and Torquay’s Vet Clinic. “A lot of artists have inspired me in the past. “My main sources now are images on social media and mainstream media. I follow people, mainly photographers, and I develop drawings, mainly female faces and local wildlife.” McLean’s mural on the Surf Coast Highway features a flock of beautiful but endangered orange bellied parrots. Many of his public artwork projects involve his students who he said love getting out of the classroom, and gain a sense of ownership and pride in creating something for others to enjoy. Seven original artworks are the latest to feature on the artists’ wall at Jan Juc’s Bird Rock Café. McLean plans to rotate the pieces with fresh works throughout the seven-week exhibition. Keep your eyes out for more of McLean’s projects including an 11-artist collaboration capturing creative responses to female beauty, to be showcased at Courthouse Arts in Geelong early next year.

The fruit used for this is two barrels from the Gruyere region, while the rest is made up of all Upper Yarra fruit. It’s quite a rich, fruit forward style with melon, fig and stone fruit flavours predominating alongside the balancing citrus, mineral and lemon barley undertones with just the right amount of acid on the finish. Excellent.

Mac Forbes Yarra Valley “Hugh” Cabernet Blend 2011 ($50) Classically elegant Yarra Valley Bordeaux style blend with signature Cabernet fragrance of cassis, blue fruits and spice on the nose. There’s a mineral/ earthy component too but it’s the amazing richness of fleshy fruit, portraying opulence and silken mouth-feel considering the vintage that makes this a standout.

Black white face stencil with pink birds by Surf Coast artist Mike McLean is part of the latest exhibition at Bird Rock Café in Jan Juc.

Family food makes history

BY ALI DEANE

I HAVE always liked the way families talk about food. If you cook a dish frequently enough you become the owner. Grandma’s Christmas cake or aunty Glen’s kiss biscuits are a couple of examples in our family.

THE Barwon Heads Art Group Melbourne Cup weekend art show is just around the corner. The annual event creates a buzz on the foreshore of Barwon Heads each November, but next weekend over 100 original paintings and beautiful handpainted cards will be showcased at the Barwon Heads Senior Citizens Centre. A wide range of subjects will be on show including local scenery, seascapes, streetscapes, ships, waterfalls, birds, chickens, flowers, abstracts and outback Australia; all original, and available to buy at reasonable prices.

“We all look forward to showing our work at our art show each year as it gives us such great satisfaction to see the public’s response to our work,” group convenor Dorothy van Dorp said. “We’re all very excited, we’ve worked basically all year, and it’s all new work. “Many regulars return to view our work each year. And the new screens really showcase our artwork, which we are so happy about as we have worked the last 12 months for the show.” The art show will run over three days from November 2 to November 4, from 10am to 4pm in the hall at the Barwon Heads Senior Citizens Centre, Clifford Parade, Barwon Heads. Entry is free.

It may also be passed on through generations. Sarah has cooked grandma’s Christmas cake for more than 30 years – I wonder at which point in time it will be known as Sarah’s Christmas cake, or will it forever be grandma’s? I have talked about creating food memories before. Most cultures have long known of the importance of creating a home in which food and family are as one. I was recently watching Stephen Fry’s television show Fry’s Planet. The show explores language, coming to understand how we learn it, write it and sometimes lose it, and why it defines us. All interesting, but what does this have to do with food? Stephen travels to the Basque country of Spain in search of why the Basque language, despite Franco’s best attempts to destroy it, is still flourishing. He meets a very famous chef whose family has been running their restaurant since the 19th century.

I am pleased that such a learned chap as Stephen Fry and I agree that food plays an incredibly important role in our cultural life. Speaking of our culture, the racing season is upon us and I thought it appropriate to include two of our family’s food “certainties” for winning at the races. Most of the ingredients are available at Torquay Farm Foods.

Within families, you don’t have to create the recipe to be famous. You just have to serve the meal often. Grandma did not invent Christmas and she was certainly not the first to make a cake about the same time as the fat man slides down the chimney, but in our family it was only her cake that was genuine.

He and his daughter say language, like food, can absorb external influences. They suggest that language and cuisine are closely entwined because recipes were once passed on by word of mouth.

Wizards win big at music awards BY TIFFANY PILCHER

KING Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard have worked their magic at the Carlton Dry Independent Music Awards this month, walking away with a gong for their debut album and a huge cash grant. The psychedelic surf rock seven-piece took out the Best Independent Hard Rock, Heavy or Punk Album award for 12 Bar Bruise, and the Global Music Grant worth $50,000. Frontman Stu Mackenzie said the band members, who are originally from the Surf Coast and Deniliquin, were completely stunned with both awards. “It was very amazing and very overwhelming, we were really surprised. “We didn’t think we were heavy enough to win the hard rock, heavy or punk category so winning that was pretty cool and the grant kind of changes everything.” The group will use the grant to relocate to the US mid next year to write and explore

international opportunities. “We’ve all really wanted to do it for a while and we’ve had lots of opportunities to play overseas but as a seven piece it’s really hard to make it financially viable. “The grant is going to make it possible so it’s really huge for us.” After smashing out three albums in the past 12 months, Mackenzie said they’re looking forward to gaining inspiration during the upcoming trip. “So far we’ve done a lot of the work ourselves which, in a weird way, has made everything happen way faster. “It was all done in-house and close to home so it was easy, we’re pretty excited and interested to see how being away will affect the process.”

King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard won big at the Carlton Dry Independent Music Awards earlier this month.

Hawken’s hell concludes

Chill out at Wolseley this weekend A RARE appearance on the Surf Coast will see Stephen Cummings and Rebecca Barnard out of Melbourne team up to tear it up and knock it down on the gently sloping hills at Wolseley Wines this weekend. Chill out on Sunday afternoon as the two commanding singers blow off some steam, together and alone. Wolseley Wines is just off the Great Ocean Road, inland from Bells Beach, at 1,790 Hendy Main Road, Paraparap. Doors open 3pm, music from 4-6pm, $15 at the door.

BY ALI DEANE

TORQUAY writer Tim Hawken is about to release the third and final book in his critically acclaimed Hellbound series, coinciding with the development of a film that will see his work on the silver screen. The series began with Hellbound and I Am Satan, and is a multi-dimensional thriller that depicts a world of Hell never seen before; confronting life and death in a contemporary, philosophical way, at the same time exploring the power of love. The latest instalment Deicide, concludes the epic story. Hawken, now based in Yallingup, Western Australia, said when you first write something like this, you really don’t know how it’s going to be received. “I still pinch myself that so many people have shown confidence in my work, right from my publishers, to the fans and now to filmmakers and actors. It’s crazy. “The next step is bringing a major studio on board, but with the team of people behind Hellbound now, it feels like the momentum is only getting stronger. It’s a very good atmosphere to

be launching the last novel in. “Deicide is going to lift it to the next level and end with a bang!” In addition to recently signing partnerships with Luber Roklin Entertainment and Savela Kabatoff Productions to bring his series to the silver screen, Hawken has lured Twilight actor Charlie Bewley to play the lead character Michael. “Hawken’s dark genius leaps off the page in a visceral way,” Bewley said. “It grabs you and shakes you up, leaving you thinking about it for months afterward. This is the next big thing in the supernatural genre. “The struggle for redemption in a dark world is something that resonates with everyone it touches.” Ken Kabatoff of Savela Kabatoff Productions said the series was as enticing as forbidden fruit. “It has alluring visuals, crisp dialogue and an invigorating story, all staged in an ancient setting, which Hawken has turned on its head. It’s going to make one amazing film.” Deicide will be available from all good book retailers, in both paperback and eBook formats from early December, via Rethink Press.

Tim Hawken is about to release the third and final instalment of his critically acclaimed Hellbound series.

Oaks Day Picnic at Suma Park

SUMA Park Homestead is celebrating its rich racing history by hosting a special Oaks Day picnic lunch on November 7. The 19th Century homestead was built for prominent stud breeder and horse racing entrepreneur James Wilson of St Albans, Whittington. Wilson owned and trained three-year-old filly Briseis who is famous for winning the 1876 Melbourne Cup. Briseis was ridden by Peter St Albans when Peter was just 12 days short of his 13th birthday. He remains the youngest jockey ever to win a Melbourne Cup.

The filly went on to create a record unlikely to be equalled, winning the Victoria Racing Club RC Derby, Melbourne Cup and Oaks trophies in the space of six days. Both Peter St Albans and Briseis have become racing legends with Briseis regarded as one of the greatest mares foaled in Australia. A race carries her name at the Melbourne Cup carnival each year, the Briseis Gold Cup at Geelong is named in her honour and the Geelong Racing Club has named the Briseis Function Centre after her. The Oaks Day picnic lunch will take place on Thursday November 7 from 12.30pm to 4pm.

Suma Park Homestead on the Bellarine Highway invites you to enjoy a picnic lunch, races, fashion and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interesting racing history.

Tickets are $75 for two or $40 for individuals, including a freshly made picnic lunch hamper and Suma Park wine. The Briseis Bar will also be open to purchase

more wine, bubbles and beer. Tickets must be pre-purchased by Friday November 1 from Suma Park 5258 3507 or info@ sumapark.com.au.

Seniors join the Coryule Chorus BY TIFFANY PILCHER DRYSDALEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S own community choir, the Coryule Chorus, will be adding to the atmosphere and entertainment to Seniors month festivities with a concert at the end of October. The choir will perform a concert at St James Anglican Church, High Street, Drysdale at 1pm on Thursday October 31. They are set to present a selection from their repertoire of favourites, including a medley of Beatles hits, a unique arrangement of the famous Pachelbelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Canon, and some community singing for all to enjoy. The concert will also feature popular soloists Annette Playsted and Bob Ball and the performance of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coryule Songâ&#x20AC;?, written by local artist Gillian Turner, depicting an illustrated history of the Drysdale area. The Coryule Chorus formed in August 2010, and has grown in numbers to now be a formidable, competent choir attracting attention throughout Geelong and the Bellarine. They are named after the Coryule Homestead in Drysdale, which originally was the home of two of our most famous pioneers, Anne Drysdale and Caroline Newcomb.

They perform regularly across the Bellarine Peninsula at various clubs, organisations and aged care facilities. Admission to the concert is by gold coin donation and there will be an afternoon tea served following the performance.

The Coryule Chorus is performing a concert as part of Seniors Week in Drysdale on October 31.

Don’t be a carping critic! Avoid becoming bogged down in nit-picking negatives. This week favors plenty of positive thinking as you appreciate the glass being half-full, rather than half empty. Capable Capricorns are usually highly rational creatures, but don’t overlook the importance of your inner voice. Your intuition will point you in the right direction … if you let it.

Risqué Rams - the Sun joins retro Mercury in your sex/money zone, so lust and loot are somewhat challenging at the moment. And serious Saturn reminds you to accept responsibility for the role you’ve played in any relationship rifts or financial fiascos. Your emotions will fluctuate wildly on Friday… so don’t make matters worse by playing petty power games.

Crabs are susceptible to flattery but don’t let someone sweet talk you into doing something you really don’t want to do. And, when it comes to a child, teenager or friend, avoid jumping to half-baked conclusions. Check the facts thoroughly first. Expect some tension between personal, professional and relationship responsibilities on Friday. Cool compromise is the key.

Have you lost your Libran mojo? Expect love and lust to improve as the sun charges into your sign. But with Mercury reversing through your finance zone, money matters continue to be problematic. Your diplomatic skills will be called on, as loved ones or colleagues get embroiled in complicated misunderstandings. Play the peacemaker … but don’t get caught in the crossfire!

A romance goes through a rocky stage, as Mercury reverses through your relationship zone (from October 21-November 11). So tread carefully, steer clear of ridiculous rumors, and avoid making tactless remarks that unintentionally hurt others. Looking for a partner? It’s up to you to make the first move – but expect a few hiccups along the highway to love.

With Mercury reversing through your domestic zone (from October 21 until November 11) family dynamics are frustrating at the moment. So it’s time for clever Cats to be unusually patient, communicate clearly and consult often. Saturday is your pick of the week, as the super Sun/Neptune trine motivates your inner muse and kicks your creativity into the stratosphere.

Avoid getting drawn into power struggles. If you’re an adaptable Scorpio (sounds like an oxymoron) you’ll get through the week with less angst. Mercury is reversing through your sign, so it’s time for a late spring clean as you tidy, organize, revise, research, pay bills and plough through paperwork. Get out your fine-tooth comb – the devil is definitely in the detail.

Avoid buying things you really don’t need. Plus, with Mars marching through your shared finances zone, make sure you’re being proactive about joint accounts or business partnerships. By the end of the week you’ll have changed your mind about a job, colleague, work issue or your future direction. That’s life – especially when you’re an unpredictable Aquarian.

When Mercury reverses, you can feel irritable and impulsive. So between October 21 and November 11 - avoid using words as weapons. And don’t let an impulsive outburst ruin an otherwise wonderful relationship. With Venus visiting your partnership zone [until November 5] it’s time to stop arguing; be a gracious Gemini; and hold out the olive branch of peace.

It’s time to enjoy the simple pleasures of home sweet home! Venus is visiting your domestic zone (until November 5) which highlights activities like craft, cooking, decorating, gardening, spending time with the family, relaxing in front of the TV and entertaining at home. But with Mercury going retrograde, expect some communication chaos along the way!

Venus is visiting your sign, which makes you slightly more diplomatic than usual. But, with retro Mercury also in the mix, you still need to choose your words wisely. Saturday favors having plenty of frivolous fun, as the Moon and Jupiter make beautiful music together. Your motto for the week is from birthday great Pablo Picasso “A day without laughter is a day wasted.”

Having a positive attitude is great but make sure you’re not adopting a ‘Pisces Pollyanna approach’ as you put your head in the sand and avoid real problems in your life. Saturday is your best day of the week, when the wonderful Sun/ Neptune trine boosts romance, creativity and compassion. Some Fish will experience deja-vu, as you meet someone or go somewhere ‘new’.

Quiksilver goes pink for Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Night In BY TIFFANY PILCHER TORQUAYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S Quiksilver headquarters will turn all shades of pink for their Cancer Council Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Night In event in support of womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cancer research on October 31. All Quiksilver staff are invited to wear pink to work on the day and at 5pm the boys will be kicked out and the invitation is open to all women to join in for a night of fun. There will a Zumba class followed by a screening of the film Five, an anthology of five short films

exploring the impact of breast cancer on peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives. Directed by Jennifer Aniston, Alicia Keys, Demi Moore, Patty Jenkins and Penelope Spheeries, the film uses humour and drama to highlight the shared experience of each short filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main character. A special guest speaker will also appear to discuss her personal journey through battling breast cancer. Event organiser Laura Welsh said all women in the community are invited to throw on some pink and join in the fun for a great cause.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It should be a really fun, relaxed and inspiring night. Roxy is all about girls pushing their limits and Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Night In highlights really important womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health issues and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s absolutely something we want to support.â&#x20AC;? The event kicks off at 5pm in the Quiksilver Auditorium, 27 Baines Crescent, Torquay. Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased from the Quiksilver offices, numbers are limited. All funds raised will go towards the Cancer Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s research, prevention programs and support services for womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cancers.

Optimising study performance WITH RICHARD BENNETT FROM OM PSYCHOLOGY SUCCESS in end of year exams and submissions can be achieved in a similar way to success in athletic performance. When you train the core mental skills and keep your focus on the process you will create the greatest opportunity for personal best academic performance. Naturally each subject demands a sound knowledge base that, like developing physical skills, requires plenty of practice. However, be aware that cramming study can have the same effect as overtraining, so ensure you focus on consistent, quality study and enhance retention by organising subject content into meaningful themes. The two core mental skills for academic success are memory (for information storage and recall) and communication (for clarity and accuracy of information delivery in the required way for example, written, oral, musical). Sharp memory and communication skills will allow easy access to your knowledge base during test time.

Tips for students 1. Foundation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ensure good sleep, nutrition, a sound balance of study and relaxation time includes light physical activity and plenty of fresh air. 2. Practice â&#x20AC;&#x201C; test yourself in preparation to sharpen your memory and communication skills. 3. Test time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; create a happy, free and open mindset to ensure easy recall and delivery of knowledge base. 4. Review â&#x20AC;&#x201C; let go of the subject content and focus on the quality of your memory and communication. Identify what you did well and what you could improve on then take this awareness and confidence into your next exam/submission.

Tips for parents/supports

Quiksilverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (L-R) Laura Underwood, Laura Welsh, Kate Hutchison and Tara Muffet are decked out in pink ahead of their Girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Night In event on October 31.

1. Similar to physical tapering in sport, mental tapering can greatly enhance academic performance, so be mindful about placing any unnecessary mental demands on the student 2. Emanate a genuine sense of confidence and belief in the studentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to do well 3. Be available, receptive and allow the student space, as while academic outcomes can serve a life stage, developing responsibility, independence and selfbelief will serve them well for a lifetime.

healthy living

The Jetts challenge continues BY TIFFANY PILCHER AFTER surviving my first Jetts training session last week, I hit the treadmill and the weights again with recovered muscles and renewed enthusiasm on Friday. This week I took advantage of Jetts’ reciprocal rights system, through which members have access to any Jetts gym. This means that even though I signed up to be a member in Torquay, I can use any of the 200 Jetts gyms across Australia and New Zealand, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This is not only incredibly convenient for me, but it also means I can avoid the fitness black hole that sucks me in every time I leave town for a couple of days. If I am away from home for longer than a few days with no access to a gym, you probably won’t find me working out again until the next surge of motivation comes around so this system gets a big tick from me. With work to do in Geelong, I popped into Jetts Belmont on High Street for another personal training session with Rob. This time we worked on my legs, chest and shoulders and he created a dynamic workout sequence to complement my first session. He finds my upper limit for reps and weight on each exercise – which is apparently rather obvious by how screwed up my face gets, and writes it all out on a card for me to reference each time I go in and track my progress. It’s a challenging session and as Rob says with a smile, “you go to the gym to work”, so if I keep this up I’ll be tough as nails before I know it. At the end he hands me some forms to fill out and asks me to get my blood pressure read. Next week I’m taking on boot camp.

Blindness project to be piloted in Geelong BY JAMES TAYLOR

Surf Coast Times journalist Tiffany Pilcher is back on the treadmill for week two of her four-week Jetts gym challenge.

PEOPLE at risk of eye disease in the Greater Geelong region will be targeted in a new $1.57 million pilot program to be rolled out by the Vision Initiative. Data from the Victorian Population Health Survey (VPHS) has revealed the region has an above average number of people who are at a greater risk of vision loss and blindness. Statistics of concern include: • 44.6 per cent of adults have noticed a change in their vision in the last 12 months (compared to 41.8 per cent of Victorians) • 21 per cent of adults have never had an eye test with an eye health professional (compared to 20.4 per cent) • 19.3 per cent of adults aged over 35 have never seen an eye health professional (compared to 15.8 per cent). The pilot will integrate into existing health systems and deliver training to GPs, pharmacists and practice nurses, to improve identification of people at risk of eye disease and encourage them to have regular eye tests with an appropriate eye health professional. The state government made the announcement on October 10 – World Sight Day. South Barwon MP Andrew Katos said the pilot program would be important for informing future activities not just in this region but in Victoria, and strongly encouraged people to have their eyes tested regularly. Health Minister David Davis said those most at risk of avoidable vision loss included people over the age of 40, smokers, people with diabetes, those with a family history of eye disease, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. “These pilot projects will be rolled out across the local government areas of Darebin, Greater Shepparton, Greater Geelong and Latrobe and will conclude after 12 months of their implementation. It is concerning the VPHS data shows one-in-five Victorians have never had an eye test.”

Chancellor and English lock in for Southern Exposure BY ALI DEANE THE Southern Exposure Surf Coast 100 mountain bike festival is luring top riders to battle it out along the coastal cliff tops and hinterland single tracks of Anglesea this weekend. Following his second 24 hour solo world championship win in Canberra earlier this month, Port Macquarie’s Jason English will line-up to take on the world class course with Melbourne marathon champion Murray Spink on Saturday, and a long list of solo and team challengers. The event’s new distance format will see riders race 100 kilometres solo or in teams of two, comprising 25 kilometre laps beginning at the race village centre of Anglesea’s Eumeralla. There will also be a 50 kilometre distance. Race director Mick Sheehan said the different format from previous years should suit English. “He will get number one plate and be hard to beat. “I’m pleased to hear he had recovered well (from the world championships) and was keen to make the journey down to the Surf Coast. “It is a good chance to see him ride and also an opportunity to ride with him; it will be a close race as other top riders have now entered. “I expect Katie Chancellor to take a win; with her current form she will be my pick for the overall women’s event.” The course that covers a mix of flowing single track and mid range climbs is world class according to Sheehan who said it was great to have a world champion here. “The course is in amazing condition, everything is on track, and with the weather outlook it will be

superb racing conditions. “Entries are still coming in, and will stay open until Friday afternoon, we are trying to avoid late entries on the day.” The Southern Exposure mountain bike festival, in its seventh year, not only attracts top end riders. It is a gathering of like-minded recreational riders, families and friends who return to the area for the quality mountain biking terrain, spectacular scenery and to explore the region for a holiday. Registration will be from 7am on October 26 at the village centre at Eumeralla, Anglesea. The 100 kilometre solo and team event will kick off at 9.30am and the 50 kilometre solo event starts at 10.30am. There will be coffee, food, locally brewed beer, live music, free camping under the stars and presentations are expected at around 3.30pm.

Celebrities kick start new AFL 9s

A NEW Australian rules football format is coming to Geelong this summer. Hawthorn premiership star Brian Lake, former Australian netballer Sharelle McMahon and Opal’s basketballer Liz Cambage helped launch the new format - Cadbury AFL 9s – last week. The newest format of Australia’s game will be played in more than 20 locations across Victoria and offers opportunities for both men and women of all ages and abilities to participate. With all-male, all-female and mixed competitions, and with ‘touch football’ style rules, Cadbury AFL 9s is designed to provide a combination of fun and fitness.

Hawthorn Premiership player and 2013 Norm Smith Medalist Brian Lake loved his first foray in to Cadbury AFL 9s, highlighting it as the best to stay in shape in the off-season while also having a laugh with your friends. “You can kick goals, lay off a quick handball and take a diving mark on a much smaller version of an AFL field making it the perfect social match regardless of your fitness level,” Lake said. Also on board as a Cadbury AFL 9s ambassador is mother of one and former Australian netball star Sharelle McMahon, who joined current Tulsa Shock basketballer Liz Cambage in swapping sports for the day.

After playing their first match, McMahon said Cadbury AFL 9s was a great summer sport for people looking for a fun social way of keeping fit. “It doesn’t matter if you have never kicked a ball in your life, it’s just a great way to have fun and stay fit over summer,” McMahon said. Cambage agreed after loving her switch from the court to the football field. Individuals and teams are encouraged to register by Monday November 4 to go into the draw to win the chance to play a game of 9s during half time of the 2014 Toyota AFL Premiership Season at either the MCG or Etihad Stadium. For more information, head to afl9s.com.au.

RECENTLY fishery delegates from around the world gathered in Adelaide to discuss the sustainable management of southern bluefin tuna and the tourism dollar they generate. Parliamentary secretary for agriculture Richard Colbeck said southern bluefin tuna was one of the world’s most valuable fish species and an ecologically important stock. “Improving the sustainable status of southern bluefin tuna also benefits local employment and provides a stable investment environment for this valuable industry, especially in the Port Lincoln area,” Senator Colbeck said. This has also been borne out by the recent Victorian study undertaken in Portland, which revealed tuna is worth between $7-9 million to the Portland economy. “The economic importance of the lucrative catch had been quantified in the study jointly commissioned by the Victorian Coalition government and Glenelg Shire Council. Southern bluefin tuna off the south west coast is a truly world class recreational fishery that attracts thousands of anglers from across Australia between February and June each year,” Premier Denis Napthine said. “An estimated 3,000 anglers travelled to Portland to fish for southern bluefin tuna in 2012, with 300 or more trailer boats in the area at any one time and 2530 charter boats operating out of the region. “The economic benefits of recreational tuna fishing have been recognised anecdotally for some years but this is the first time action has been taken to quantify just how significant that contribution is.” The study, by Deloitte Access Economics, found anglers spent an average of between $381-$508 each day they launched boats in the local sea, mainly on accommodation, food and drinks, fuel, fishing supplies and charter boat fees. My say Too many people underestimate the value of recreational fishing to our economy and what it means to towns and businesses, not just to Victoria as a whole but to our own coastline as well. It’s also not just about tuna. Recreational fishing as a whole is worth millions to the state’s economy, as seen by the much quoted Ernst and Young study which showed that in 2008/9 over 700,000 fishers contributed $8.7 million to the economy in that year.

Here, now we see in this latest government study that claims that Portland alone has produced that same sort of expenditure in one year alone. So it begs the question what is recreational fishing worth in 2013? Recreational fishers are solid contributors to the economy of Victoria and its time government policies reflected this with better access, better boat launching facilities and a better outcome for the health of our estuaries, streams and oceans along our coastline to

ANGLESEA GOLF CLUB THE Course Team and the Gunners have been hard at work to ensure the course is looking at itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for Open Week. The weather has been challenging with nearly gale force winds, but with very little excess and loose vegetation the recovery has been quick. Congratulations and thanks to all those involved. We have some big events coming up after Open Week. The Club Championships start on Saturday November 2 for both the men and the women and will continue for three Saturdays of stroke. The Annual Calcutta evening will be held on Monday November 4 with horses being drawn from 8pm onwards. Director and presidential candidate Ian Burgess will be host and Calcutta tickets will be available for sale on the night. Lastly we have Renee Geyer playing at the Club on Saturday November 9 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; check the website for details and booking information.

WITH MARGOT SMITH

it was interesting to note that we have a lot more grandmothers than â&#x20AC;&#x153;nonsâ&#x20AC;?. The Grannie winner was Lynn McVean with 1 down on a count back from runner up Vida Brenner and third, Sue Britnell. In the non-grandmothers the winner was soon-tobe grandmother Anne Mangan with 3 down. NTP winners were Anne Mangan, Dee Stewart, Vida Brenner and Lynn McVean.

FROM THE GOLF SHOP

It was another windy day for the men on Wednesday. Scores were a little subdued with grade winners all scoring 37 points. Brent McDonald won A Grade, Graeme Joyce won B Grade and Paul Johnstone won C Grade. In the seniors the winner was Cyril Leith with the dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best score of 38 points. NTP winners were Robyn Harvey, Darryl Stanley and Peter Jackson. Thursday was a day of four seasons, with the seasons changing every 5 minutes. It was grandmothers and non-grandmothers day, and

Saturday was the last competition before Open Week and a chance to refine the handicap. Ian Treloar must have done some damage to his with a magnificent 7 up and a win in B Grade. David Lewis won A Grade with 3 up and came in a shot for Sunday, Frank Denahy won C grade with 1 down and Maralyn Cross won the ladies with 2 down. NTP winners were Stephen Sinnott, Nigel Powers, Daniel Wright and Travis Capon, and Ross Robins started his round with an eagle on the 1st. Sunday was Event 1 for our 59th Open Week. The event was the Mixed Pinehurst with lots of opportunity to put your partner in trouble. Roger Stephens and Helen Pascoe won the gross event with 75 and Phil and Carmel Francis won the nett with 69ž, with John and Denise Mooney runners up with 70â&#x2026;?. NTPs for the men were John Mooney, Roger Stephens and Glenn McNamara on two, and for the ladies Helen Pascoe, Wendy Flentje, Jocelyn Freeman and Sue Britnell. Enjoy your golf.

The fields were much larger than what was expected thanks to a great effort by some of our fellow members. Of course, there were many visitors to our new course and all seemed impressed with what has been achieved at The Torquay Golf Club. Comments were all favourable and most cannot wait to come back for next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s golf week. The weather more or less was good to us but whatever the conditions it did not stop anyone from getting to the tee. There were some terrific prizes up for grabs and no one wanted to miss their chance at winning them. Tuesday night for the ladies we heard was one of the best ever thanks in part to some funny acts that were rehearsing for weeks, look out for next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all girls night as we are sure it will be booked out again. We look forward to an even bigger and better year next year. Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stroke round produced some surprise winners Cheryl Mostyn was one of them as she took out A grade with 69. Barbara Stuchbery after a long absence won B grade scoring 72 and for C grade Sue Barnes had 73. NTPs Marilyn Young, Sue Barnes, Ruth Dickins, and Bernadette Oliver. Heather Wemyss-Smith jackpot.

Wednesday October16, Ladies Stableford, Committee day, 65 players Appropriately, our Committee ladies dominated proceedings on this annual event when these ladies are spoilt with some lavish attention.

Bragging rights on line at Surf Fest BY ALI DEANE EXCITEMENT is building and whispers starting about who might be at this year’s Surf Fest at Jan Juc, the team surfing challenge where participants ride a variety of craft. Over the years, the community surf event has lured former champion surfers like Martin Potter, Simon Anderson and Mark Richards, and last year saw the addition of a women’s division. The event was conceived eight years ago by local surfer and sport teacher Stui Hawken and will see teams of three compete in a tag-team format on a shortboard, longboard and retro surfboard. SEDA’s surf program students are behind organising the event in conjunction with Surfworld Museum and the Quiksilver Foundation. According to Nicky Smith, who is taking care of marketing management, Surf Fest is really a fun day, with a competition on the side. “Teams will be competing for fun and bragging

rights, but most of all it’s an opportunity to get out and have fun, and raise money for a good cause.” Last year, proceeds from Surf Fest saw disadvantaged children participate in learn-to-surf programs, giving them the opportunity to enjoy the beach, catch waves and learn about surf culture. This year, students are trying to get as many entries as possible, and their goal is to raise $2,000 for the Quiksilver Foundation to support more disadvantaged youth projects. Doors open at 5.30pm and films start at 6.30pm, on Friday November 15. Surf Fest kicks off at Jan Juc beach Saturday November 16 from 8am. Entry forms are now available from the Surf World Museum at Surf City Plaza, Beach Road, Torquay, or at surfworld.com.au. Find Surf Fest on Facebook for all event updates. Got any surf stories or photos – funny, serious, quirky or otherwise – you’d like to share from a session along our beautiful stretch of coast or even beyond? Email ali@surfcoasttimes.com.au.

Sport in brief

Surf with girls this summer WORLD Tour surfer Bec Woods is returning to Victoria to join forces with Phillip Island’s Jess Laing and India Payne to share their surfing skills with girls across the state as part of Surfing Victoria’s Surfing for Girls program. Following the Ghanda Girls Surf Off on November 23, the Surfing

for Girls tour kicks off at Ocean Grove on November 24 before heading off to Portland, Warrnambool and other locations along the Victorian coastline. The skill development program aims to help surfers be more competent in the open ocean and become better surfers. “It is great to give women exposure to the ocean and surfing in a safe environment and introduce them to something that has shaped my life from a young age,” Woods said. Head to surfingvic.com to register or call 5261 2907.

Team TBC (L-R) Neil Bell-Warren, Tristan Forras, Dave Matthews, Dyson Bell-Warren and Cahill BellWarren – won the Team Up and Be the Influence Charity Challenge in perfect three foot waves at Bells Beach on Saturday with a massive total score of 64.81 points. The team donated their $1,000 firstplace cheque to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia. “This was such a sick event, any time you get to surf Bells Beach with only three other guys out is a win regardless of the result. Having a history of prostate cancer in our family, it was a no brainer to donate to the foundation. Hopefully this event gets bigger each year,” Cahill Bell-Warren said.

Drysdale is tops after two from two BY JAMES TAYLOR DRYSDALE sits undefeated atop the BPCA division 1 ladder after accounting for Queenscliff at the weekend in round two. Defending 300 at home, Drysdale took wickets regularly throughout the day and dismissed Queenscliff for 182, with B Harding taking 5/42 off 17 overs. D Mair was Queenscliff’s top scorer and the second-last man out for 95. Barrabool sits in second spot, recovering from 4/74 on the first day to successfully chase down the 156 set by Barwon Heads on RT Fuller Oval. The visitors eventually posted 196, thanks to 71 from opener K Pickering. Collendina were set 177 to win by

Wallington, but racked up the weekend’s biggest total of 9/355 off 80 overs on the back of 135 from opener J Rock and L Keast’s 63. D Biemands took 5/71 for Wallington. Another century – 117 by first drop P McGrath – helped Portarlington easily account for Jan Juc at Jan Juc Park, passing the hosts two wickets down and ending on 7/316. Anglesea narrowly defended their 217 at home against Ocean Grove, with J Lynch taking 7/75 to restrict Ocean Grove to 197. Newcomb had the bye, and will host Drysdale at Ervin Reserve this Saturday. For the ladder, detailed scores and a fixture, head to mycricket.cricket.com.au and search Bellarine Peninsula Cricket Association.

FIRST things first. Congratulations to our Karen Harrington for her amazing performance in the Australian Masters Games, which were staged recently in Geelong. Karen teamed with Jan Walter from Barwon Heads to take out the over-35 pairs title. And back to the home front, things are warming up under the Big Top. With the temperatures gradually climbing to summery levels – except for the Mid-Week pennant hailstorms last week and this week’s rain – there is a genuine feeling that the bowls season is really upon us. The pennant and solo practice sessions seem to be gaining a new sense of urgency as the more serious members look to the events calendar and realise that club championship events are on now! The Mid-Week competition teams are having a hectic time, with two games a week at present to make up for the Masters Games disruption, and for some it is proving a struggle. However, our division 2 team is on top of the ladder while the three lower-division squads are still finding their feet. In Saturday pennant, the division 1 side is holding third place at present. While the division 5 and division 10 groups are also in the top four of their sections. The other three teams need to lift their game as they are struggling to keep up the pace. The Twilighters’hierarchy reports that the first week of play went off well, with Wednesday night a delight but Thursday’s conditions proving to be somewhat a test of resilience. While the greens are fully booked for both nights, there is a need for emergencies who can fill in for players who are unable to play on any given week. Anyone interested in getting a game should call Gillian Pritchard on 0466 237 765 to enrol. Also, members and friends are reminded that the club’s Happy Hour continues in the salubrious surroundings of the Big Top every Friday night from 4.30. The Hocking Stuart members’ lucky draw is held then. And on the progress of the redevelopment of what is now the mere shell of the former clubhouse, there are assurances that all is going well and on schedule. We now are the proud owners of a roof that won’t leak on barman Willy, and plans are still afoot for being back into our home early in the new year.
