Premier and mayor praise new centre BY JAMES TAYLOR
THE Premier of Victoria and the mayor of the City of Greater Geelong have been unanimous in their praise of the expanded Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre. Dr Denis Napthine and Cr Darryn
Lyons toured stage one of the expansion at its opening yesterday, including the new Coles and Kmart stores. Dr Napthine said it was an exciting day for Geelong and the whole region. “This is a massive investment in Waurn Ponds and a great vote of confidence in

Geelong and the Surf Coast. “When you see this sort of investment, you can say to yourself that Geelong does have a very, very bright future. “While there are challenges, while there’s transition, what you’re seeing here is major investors putting their money into Geelong, because they know the population’s growing, the demand’s growing and there are jobs growing in this area.” Cr Lyons said construction delivered $1.95 billion to the Geelong economy per year and retailing another $1.14 billion, making the two sectors the third and sixth largest industries in the city. “Both industry sectors are reliable indicators of consumer confidence and combined with other signifiers such as car registrations, births, and new ABNs – it’s very clear that the Geelong economy is not only buoyant, but we are booming. “It’s evident that Geelong is certainly a lucrative and appealing place to invest.”

BY JAMES TAYLOR THE first stage of the $90 million expansion of the Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre opened yesterday, paving the way for 500 new jobs in the region. The opening of stage one comes after 12 months of construction and is part of a joint venture between Australian Unity Real Estate Investment (AUREI) and Coles. About 200 jobs were created during the construction phase, and another 500 retail jobs will be created when Coles, Kmart and about 60 specialty outlets open. The roller doors were raised at Coles at 8am, and the crowd of curious shoppers was entertained by a performance by pupils from Mandama Primary School. Coles managing director Ian McLeod said the company’s investment indicated its confidence in

Ponds Shopping Centre in 1999 and substantially developed it over time, firstly in 2007 and now in 2014, to cater to the growing needs of southern Geelong and the wider Bellarine region. “The Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre now covers an area almost twice the size of the MCG and when fully completed in August will have increased its floor space by 20,000 square metres to approximately 47,000 square metres. “Over the next 20 years the population of Greater Geelong is predicted to increase by 32 per cent, or by an additional 72,712 people to just under 300,000. “It is critical that given the everexpanding population of the region looks set to continue, we continue to invest in and support the local community.”
the future of the Geelong region. “Coles now employs more than 1,200 team members in our eight stores in the greater Geelong area, and we are proud that the expansion of the store at Waurn Ponds will provide an employment boost for the region. “Overall, Coles has committed to invest $130 million in Geelong in four new stores – including Waurn Ponds – which will create more than 400 construction jobs and employ
around 600 people once completed. “We have doubled the number of Coles team members employed at Waurn Ponds and our new Coles superstore, Coles Express and Liquorland together will employ about 230 team members locally.” The Coles supermarket is a new large format store – the first in the Geelong region – and Kmart is presenting its latest layout and design. Stage one of the expansion includes the opening of a number of new specialty stores, including a new Reject Shop, Priceline, and Bank of Melbourne. A temporary indoor walkway links the expansion with the Target side of the centre, and an interconnecting mall between the two sides is expected to open by September. AUREI general manager Mark Pratt said the expansion continued Australian Unity’s 15-year history of investing in the growth of the Geelong region. “Australian Unity first purchased the Waurn

BEAT CHANGE Cut in police hours causes outcry among the Bellarine community
BY REBECCA LAUNER
NEWS that the state government is cutting police hours at stations on the Bellarine Peninsula has caused an outcry among the community. But Victoria Police confirmed this week that there was no truth any station on the Bellarine would be closing. It was reported at the weekend that police stations at Portarlington, Drysdale and Queenscliff would cease to be fulltime and the Bellarine would be serviced from Ocean Grove. Borough of Queenscliff mayor Helene Cameron said the state government’s plan to slash local police operations to only
two hours a week was a “slap in the face” to the residents of the borough. “The people of our community need the reassurance, security and protection that only a proper police presence can provide,” Cr Cameron said. “Our predominantly mature-age population needs to feel safe on the streets and in their own homes. “As a matter of urgency, we want the immediate return of a full police service, something council has been advocating for the past two years.” Cr Cameron said she was now seeking urgent talks with Premier Denis Napthine and Police Minister Kim Wells regarding the restoration of a full-time
police presence in Queenscliff. The Portarlington community is saying no to closing its full-time police station by putting its support behind a petition to be presented to Parliament next week. Bellarine MP Lisa Neville slammed the Napthine Government’s plan, which is expected to be rolled out from August. “I and the Labor Opposition are committed to maintaining the Portarlington, Drysdale and Queenscliff stations,” Ms Neville said. “We will also restore them to 16-hour coverage and make sure the Bellarine station in Ocean Grove is staffed 24 hours a day. “I will work with the community, the
Borough of Queenscliffe and the City of Greater Geelong council to fight this disastrous decision for the Bellarine.” Police Victoria has reassured Bellarine residents that it is looking at providing a better service to make sure police stations are open for the public at regular hours. “We will consult with police members and the community before we make decisions,” a spokesman said. Police Minister Kim Wells said Labor was misleading Victorians with alarmist claims about police numbers and police resources in the Geelong and Surf Coast police service areas (PSAs). “Since the Victorian Coalition Government came to office, about
60 additional police officers are now working in these PSAs. “Further, the Coalition Government is also delivering on its commitment to build a new $15.6 million 24-hour police station in Waurn Ponds, which will provide a permanent police presence south of the Barwon River that will allow quicker responses to incidents in this major growth corridor. “This new police station will also see police numbers in the Geelong and Surf Coast PSAs increase by about 90 by the end of the year. “These police will cover the eight police stations in the Geelong PSA and 10 police stations in Surf Coast PSA.”

IT’S been a big week, as budget week always is, and although there were some distinct challenges in putting together the 2014-2015 budget, I think the result is a good one. The budget invests heavily in job creation projects and maintenance of community assets, and is a balanced budget that delivers on major priorities while maintaining service levels in all key areas of council’s operation. I am also pleased that we have kept the rate rise to a lower-than-average 4.5 per cent in keeping with our forward planning. With particular regard to the Bellarine, funds have been committed to complete the implementation of the Shell Road Reserve Master Plan project, with $3 million in the budget for the provision of the pavilion and further car parking works, with a further $2.5 million committed in 2015-16. Council’s contribution to this year’s allocation is $1.25 million with $1.75 million being sourced from the federal government. Another major budget item that will have major benefits for the local community is funding for the upgrading of the Ocean Grove Neighbourhood House. Council has allocated $500,000 in the 201415 budget and an application has been lodged under the state’s Putting Locals First program for a further $500,000 to provide two extra training/ meeting rooms. There are some important works to be done on the underground filtration system at the Bellarine Aquatic Centre where damaged pipework is causing sand to find its way into the pools. We have a put aside $10,000 in the budget for the popular Carols by Candlelight event in Ocean Grove and $12,000 to support the summer shuttle bus that runs between Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads.

In Portarlington, the Safe Harbour Project is taking another important step forward with council’s budget allocation of $150,000 to facilitate further work with the state government on the provision of major new harbour infrastructure. Another key project being funded in this year’s budget is a Community Information Centre at Portarlington, to which Council is allocating $26,000 and the state government $9,000. The budget has also set aside $100,000 for coastal erosion mitigation works and a combined allocation of $174,000 for access path construction and maintenance works at The Dell. Another $25,000 has been allocated in the budget for a scheduled review of the Ramblers Road Foreshore Management Plan 2007. Ramblers Road has been identified as one of council’s most vulnerable sites in terms of potential inundation from Port Phillip Bay.
The importance of property development and investment in our economy Although budgets have been the big news throughout the media over the past week, I think it could be a good time to highlight Geelong and the Bellarine’s growing reputation as a national “hot spot” for property development and investment. Recently, I released our latest economic indicators bulletin and I can assure you the figures are very, very encouraging. In areas such as residential growth, Geelong and the Bellarine are star performers. Domestic building activity is up $100
million, with more than 2,000 new homes approved last year and 5,800 new residents becoming part of our community. In the three years to June 2012, there were 500 new businesses registered in the municipality. In the last quarter of 2013, there were 882 new ABNs registered. Our region has achieved new records in port trade, enrolments at Deakin, vehicle registrations, and births – all positive indicators of consumer confidence. More than $1.2 billion worth of major construction and redevelopment is under way. Another $1.9 billion in major construction and redevelopment is awaiting commencement. New developments and expansion of existing businesses means there are more than 4,300 new jobs in the pipeline. The Yarra Street Pier project is worth $80 million state-wide and will bring to the region an estimated 520 new jobs. State Transport Minister Terry Mulder was in town a little over a week ago and detailed the state budget allocation into transport infrastructure in the Geelong region. One of the real highlights for Geelong and Bellarine is the East-West Link. Finally there will be a freeway linking the Western Ring Road and the Eastern Freeway which will provide an alternative to the West Gate Bridge. The benefits for the Bellarine should be huge, and worth waiting for.

Partnership lets mussels live strong A SHELLFISH hatchery at Queenscliff will continue to be utilised for breeding and production technique work for the next six years thanks to a partnership extension. Member for South Barwon Andrew Katos said the state government had struck a four-year extension to an agreement with industry group Victorian Shellfish Hatchery (VSH) to allow it continued access to the Queenscliff hatchery for work in breeding and production techniques. The extension is on top of a new three-year agreement made in June last year.
“This continued collaboration reflects the Victorian Coalition government’s strong commitment to working with the industry to build a commercial and sustainable Victorian seafood sector and support jobs in the Barwon region,” Mr Katos said. “It is also great news for seafood lovers, with the partnership seeing more locally grown and harvested mussels on menus.” Mr Katos said the successful partnership began in 2008 with the building of the state-ofthe-art shellfish research hatchery at Queenscliff to address falling mussel harvests due to poor

availability of wild spat – or baby mussels – in Port Phillip Bay. “The hatchery is now a commercial success, with mussel harvests recovering well,” he said. “The high-quality and reliable supply is attracting new producers to the region and expanding existing shellfish operations. “This now seven-year hatchery lease agreement, which is at full commercial rates, will underpin the Victorian mussel industry and allow industry to continue to commercialise the culture of other species including oysters and possibly scallops.”
THE City of Greater Geelong (COGG) has featured in a new manual for its proactive approach to climate change. The City’s Environment Department has helped shape the latest Australian Centre of Excellence for Local Government’s Climate Adaptation Manual. The Climate Adaptation Manual for Local Government: Embedding Resilience to Climate Change was recently released in New South Wales. Councillor Andy Richards said the manual meant other councils across Australia would learn from COGG’s effective strategies. “This provides another way for us to get the climate change message out to the public,” Cr Richards said. “It’s all about creating awareness and educating people.” All local governments in Australia are encouraged to follow the manual as a guide. You can download the manual via acelg.org.au.
Leopold thumbs up for being sun smart LEOPOLD Kindergarten kids gave a big thumbs up to their new sign which recognises their dedication to being sun smart. The kindergarten was the first in the state to achieve the Sunsmart benchmark in the Healthy Together Achievement program, which supports the creation of healthy environments for learning, working and living. To become recognised as a healthy early childhood service in the Achievement Program, educators Kerry Carter and Tracy Waring needed to adopt a health promoting services approach and meet statewide benchmarks for health promotion. The kindergarten educators are now working towards meeting the benchmarks in the Active Physical Play and Healthy Eating and Oral Health areas. MEANWHILE, Leopold Kindergarten
is holding an Open Day on Saturday May 31 between 10am and 12.30pm. The kindergarten, at 29 Kanimbla Avenue, invites local families with young children to come and see the large native garden, pets and diverse play spaces, and meet the educators and current committee members.

Allan revs up for Historic Winton BY REBECCA LAUNER OCEAN Grove’s Allan Wettenhall will take the wheel when he competes in Australia’s largest allhistoric racing event this weekend. Mr Wettenhall will drive his 1932 MG J2 in the Regularity & Group K section during the 38th Historic Winton at Benalla, which presents a weekend of non-stop racing featuring historic racing cars and motorbikes from the 1920s to the 1980s. Mr Wettenhall, who has already competed in the race twice with no luck, said his “project” car was quite a good runner and was mechanically sound, but had needed a bit of work cosmetically. He said the car’s previous owner, Diana Dwyer, competed all over England before emigrating to Australia and then competed throughout New South Wales. Ms Dwyer’s car holds a pre-War lap record, which still stands, at Catalina Park (now a housing estate). Drysdale’s John Gillett will also compete in his 1934 MGK3030 in the Regularity section and Portarlington’s John Evans in his 1959 Elfin Streamliner in M Racing. Historic Winton highlights include Shannons Classic Car Park, featuring car and bike club displays, bubble cars, Indian motorbikes and Penrite
AGP Aussie Specials and spectator access to the Competition Paddock with fabulous old racing machines on open display. The event is at Winton Motor Raceway on Saturday May 24 and Sunday May 25.

Foreshore revamp at St Leonards
*Deadlines are subject to change for editions affected by public holidays.
The ramp which runs down to the Lower Bluff near Clyde Street will receive an upgrade.
BELLARINE Bayside is planning to upgrade a ramp at St Leonards to make it easier for the physically impaired to access the beach. Bellarine Bayside chief executive officer Kevin Craig said the upgrade of the ramp which runs down to the Lower Bluff near Clyde Street was part of a project that enabled more people to access St Leonard’s beautiful foreshore and enjoy the bay views. Other works to improve the safety and amenity
of the area include the installation of a viewing platform and seating at the top of the ramp, the closure of the old and unsafe steps, realignment of the car park, replacement of the fence and revegetation. The project is funded by Bellarine Bayside through the revenue generated from our local holiday parks and the Department of Environment and Primary Industries. The project will be completed by mid-2014.

MORE than 300 people entered a world of exquisite linen and lace at the weekend to help raise money for cancer research. Organiser Margaret Manning said the Lace & Grace Exhibition at Portarlington on Sunday was a ‘great success’. Ms Manning said all who attended enjoyed beautiful displays of grandma’s best needlework, lacework and crochet pieces, while lots of items sold from the trading table. MEANWHILE, Ms Manning said she was confident today’s Biggest Afternoon Tea would sell out. Earlier this week she said she only had three tickets remaining from the 320 she needed to sell. Money raised from the two events will go to the Cancer Council of Victoria. The Biggest Afternoon tea is at Parks Hall, Barbara and Robert were dressed in their best for the Lace & Grace exhibition over the weekend. Newcombe Street, between 1.15pm and 4pm.
Active lifesavers keep beaches safe in summer BY HAMISH BROOKS LIFESAVERS and lifeguards around the state performed 90,450 preventative actions this lifesaving season, a contributing factor in fewer rescues being performed. With an estimated increase to over 2.9 million visitors to Victorian beaches, 513 rescues were performed by lifesavers and lifeguards at patrolled beaches. At Surf Coast and Bellarine beaches, 33,867 preventative actions were performed. Ocean Grove lifesavers and lifeguards were among the busiest, undertaking 6,452 across a
lifesaving season that strectched from November 30 to April 21 (Easter Monday). At Fairhaven 5,961 preventative actions were taken, while in Lorne the number was 3,692. Anglesea lifesavers and lifeguards performed 2,873 preventative actions, while over 1,000 preventative actions were taken at Torquay, Point Lonsdale and 13th Beach. The Surf Coast and Bellarine clubs performed 132 rescues between them. LSV general manager lifesaving club development Andrew Foran said the 513 rescues across the state was a significant decrease on the 790 rescues performed in 2012/13.
“With even more people visiting our patrolled beaches this summer, our lifesavers and lifeguards have made every effort ensure beachgoers safety and on behalf of Life Saving Victoria, I would like to thank our volunteers for their tireless efforts. “During the heatwave experienced in January, a number of clubs put on additional patrols on weekdays and evenings, going above and beyond their usual patrols to meet the needs of beachgoers.” He said while it was great to see that so many people had taken responsibility for their safety by swimming at patrolled beaches, tragically 14 people drowned at unpatrolled coastal locations since July last year.
With beach patrols concluded for the season, Mr Foran stressed the importance for people visiting the beach to be aware of ever present risks and take responsibility for their own safety. “Drowning deaths occur all year round, not just in summer. In Victoria, more than half of last year’s drowning deaths happened outside of summer.” For further beach safety information, visit beachsafe.org.au or download the beachsafe app for your smartphone from the App Store or Google Play. Lifesaving patrols will recommence for next season from November.

Woofers give their owners a chance to socialise and learn BY REBECCA LAUNER A LOVE of dogs is bringing Portarlington residents together to socialise while encouraging responsible ownership. Formed about five years ago, Woofers and Walkers is a dog owners group which represents local dog owners and works collaboratively with the community, City of Greater Geelong and Bellarine Bayside to promote and address dog owner issues. The group, based at Portarlington Neighbourhood House, aims to encourage and support responsible dog ownership and seeks to act as a forum for issues impacting dog owners. Secretary Julie Elterman said group members were dog lovers who enjoyed
being with their dogs while having lots of fun with them. “We have monthly meetings, regular education and training workshops and guest speakers. We currently run two weekly dog training classes one for basic obedience skills, the other for more advanced agility work both led by qualified and experienced volunteer dog trainers.” Ms Elterman said the group had recently received a small state government grant through the Department of Environment and Primary Industry which allowed them to enhance dog training and education. “We meet monthly for a community walk that is a relaxed time for dogs and owners to socialise.” Ms Elterman said a highlight of the year
was the annual doggy Christmas party, often with appearances from Santa. “We also network within the dog community with many successful re-homing stories,” she said. “We assist to reunite lost dogs with their owners and care for dogs when their owners are ill or required to be in hospital for short periods. “Most importantly our woofers bring us together to feel connected to a great fellowship of dog owners.” Join Woofers and Walkers for a workshop “Learn More What It Means To Own A Well Mannered Dog!” on Saturday May 24 at 2 to 4pm at Portarlington Neighbourhood House, 28 Brown Street. Cost is $3 which includes afternoon tea.

CELEBRATING its 10th anniversary in 2014, Australia’s most spectacular marathon attracted more than 6,200 to Victoria’s iconic Great Ocean Road coastline over the weekend. National marathon champion Alex Matthews was first across the line in 2:32.33 after completing the 45 kilometre Great Ocean Road Real Estate Marathon from Lorne to Apollo Bay. He had company from Julian Spence until the halfway mark before gradually pulling away to win by 57 seconds. “For the first half Julian was sitting right on me and he was faster than me on the down hills, so it wasn’t until a few steepish rises that I got away,” Matthews said. The women’s race was also close with Magda Karimali-Poulos leading for the first 16 kilometres before being caught and passed by St Kilda’s Kirstin Bull and Darwin’s mum of four Lucie Hardiman.
Bull ended up winning in 3:07.51 with Hardiman next in 3:10.13. “We were talking quite a bit and I actually recruited her for my training group the Crosbie Crew because she’s just moved to Melbourne with her family,’’ Bull, 32, said. “I think I got away about 28 kilometres when we stopped talking.’’ Travelling from Kennett River Holiday Park to Apollo Bay Hotel, the half marathon (23 kilometres) was won by Frankston plasterer John Dutton in 1:16.00 with distance icon Steve Moneghetti fifth in 1:23.16 in his first long run since injuring a hammy in January. Lilydale’s Rebecca Rosel, who started running just three years ago, was first female in 1:27.40. Former Oarsome Foursome teammates James Tomkins and Nick Green also ran the half along with nearly 3,000 others.

Leopold hub a big ticket item in budget BY REBECCA LAUNER THE Leopold Community Hub has received a major cash injection in the City of Greater Geelong’s 2014-2015 proposed Budget. Councillor Rod Macdonald said the draft Budget assigned $4.287 million to construct stage one of the hub, which would include a kindergarten, long day care facilities and a community room. “This long awaited community hub is vital in accommodating the needs of Leopold’s growing population,” Cr Macdonald said. “It will open up much needed child care and
kinder places and create more facilities for community use.” Cr Macdonald said the budget allocated a further $250,000 to develop concept plans for stage two of the project, which would include a library, café and foyer. “This is a huge win for Leopold,” he said. Cr Macdonald said there was also funding for early planning works for a children’s and community centre on Jetty Road, which would provide early years services. “While construction of this centre will be a while off yet, important consultation and planning
work can get started. “At the Leopold Football Netball Club, $60,000 will be spent upgrading the irrigation on the reserve’s number one oval.” Cr Macdonald said the Bellarine Rail Trail would also receive funding. “Pedestrian lights will be installed along the rail trail at Jetty Road, Clifton Springs and necessary improvements will be made to vehicle access points for emergency services and maintenance vehicles,” he said. The budget also allocates $150,000 to construct a ‘T’ fishing platform at Clifton Springs, dependent
on State Government funding allocation. Cr Macdonald, who holds the portfolio for Major Projects and Knowledge Economy, said $100,000 had been allocated to the Portarlington Safe Harbour Strategic Plan. He said an additional $50,000 had been provided by the state government. “The project will address the poor condition of the existing pier and marina facilities and provide infrastructure to grow a substantial commercial aquaculture/recreation facility. “This will provide a great boost for tourism and create jobs for local people.”

The 2014-2015 budget invests heavily in job creation projects, the revitalisation of Central Geelong and maintenance of community assets.

GEELONG LIBRARY AND HERITAGE CENTRE
HOW DOES THE BUDGET AFFECT MY RATES?
The budget provides $20.1 million for construction of the iconic Geelong Library and Heritage Centre. The new centre will not only provide access to information through a traditional book collection and via the latest multi-media platforms, it will serve as a community hub in the centre of Geelong.
The residential rate rise equates to an increase on the average rates bill of $58.50 in the year. The rate rise of 4.5 per cent is in keeping with the Council’s long term plan and remains one of the lowest rate rises on any Victorian Council. Council provides minimum rate increases whilst maintaining funding of service delivery consistent with community expectations. The Council determines how much revenue it needs by preparing an annual budget.

Some federal budget praise, but MAV feels malaise BY JAMES TAYLOR LAST weekâ€™s federal budget has been praised by G21 and the Committee for Geelong (CfG) for its infrastructure spending but has been blasted by the Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV) for cutting $134 million from the stateâ€™s councils. The budget includes an extra $11.6 billion towards an Infrastructure Growth Package to fasttrack investment in critical infrastructure. CfG chief executive officer Rebecca Casson said although there was a need to â€œshare in
the painâ€? in the budget, there needed to be continued investment in infrastructure projects that advanced Geelongâ€™s liveability and promoted the regionâ€™s potential. â€œThe Infrastructure Growth Package is good news but as a key second-tier city with excellent intermodal transport assets, CfG would want to see a commensurate allocation to Geelong. â€œOur research has shown that those nations investing in their second-tier cities have fared better through economic challenges than those that have not.â€?
Jump into your
G21 chief executive officer Elaine Carbines welcomed the $1.5 billion to accelerate construction of the western side of the East West Link. â€œThis is a vital initiative that G21 and the region have been pushing for some time,â€? she said. â€œWe highlighted this as a major issue over a year ago, and have strongly advocated federally that the timing and staging priorities for East West Link Stage 2 needed to be reviewed.â€? However, MAV president Bill McArthur said the freezing of indexation on financial assistance grants from July 1 would force councils to either
cut services or increase rates. â€œYear on year, councils face declining grants from other levels of government to deliver shared responsibilities including home and community care, kindergartens, public libraries, emergency management, and core local infrastructure and facilities relied upon each day by communities. â€œCommunities should be outraged by the federal budgetâ€™s funding freeze to councils, not just take notice when rates increase or services are cut as a consequence and councils are left to face the blame.â€?

Rainbow flag flies again in the Surf Coast Shire BY JAMES TAYLOR THE Surf Coast Shire has flown the flag for sexual equality for a second year in honour of IDAHO – the International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia. A small crowd applauded as the rainbow flag was raised over the council chambers in Torquay on Friday. IDAHO – also known as IDAHOT or IDAHOBIT – was conceived in 2005, and is officially held around the world on May 17 each year to recognise the 1990 date when the World Health Organisation removed homosexuality from its list of mental disorders. Friday’s morning tea was the second time the shire has marked IDAHO, and follows 2013’s debut event. Shire mayor Rose Hodge said the global celebrations included forums, marches, planting of trees and flying of flags. “It’s great to celebrate, but in a way, you think it
should be a normal way of life, it shouldn’t need to be brought out and celebrated.” She praised Cr Jan Farrell from the City of Greater Geelong, who was at the morning tea, for her work on the issue. “I really think the Surf Coast Shire, under the guidance of Jan and COGG, have learned that we’ve got to include everybody.” Leigh Bartlett from the Barwon Adolescent Taskforce said although much had been achieved, there was still a long way to go. “In some countries, in some places, we wouldn’t be allowed to stand here and celebrate through fear of persecution, jail or even death, so we have a lot to celebrate. The most homophobic or heterosexist statistic of all is that in our country right now, 100 per cent of gay, lesbian and transgender people are expected to pay tax, expected to follow the law, but denied the right to marry.” There were also speeches from Deakin University student Zak Testa, and Sexual Biversity author Lyndal Coon and her husband, Andrew.

Entries surge for business excellence awards COMPETITION in this year’s Powercor Geelong Business Excellence Awards has heated up, with entries up 32 per cent on 2013. Geelong Chamber of Commerce president Kylie Warne said the strong interest in the awards was a sign of the strength of underlying business confidence in the Geelong economy. “Headlines suggesting Geelong is in the doldrums because of the winding down of large manufacturing fail to recognise the wonderful stories of success in Geelong’s increasingly diverse economy. “As a barometer of business confidence, innovation and success the awards are indicating a healthy future for our business community. “Almost 70 per cent of entries this year are from businesses which haven’t entered previously.” Ms Warne said although the details of entrants were a closely guarded secret until the gala
presentation dinner at The Pier on July 17, the diversity and quality of businesses this year was impressive.

State MP wants EPA to test wind farm noise BY JAMES TAYLOR MEMBER for Western Victoria Simon Ramsay wants noise from wind farms to be tested by the Environment Protection Authority (EPA). He said noise compliance issues were a significant concern to many constituents in his electorate. However, several studies have found there is little to no scientific evidence linking wind farm noise and health issues. Mr Ramsay said Planning Minister Matthew Guy was presently responsible for wind farm independent noise monitoring and compliance, but the normal agency for matters of pollution “regardless of whether it is air, noise or
waste” was the EPA. “It has been suggested to me that the EPA should be the referral agency for noise compliance for wind farm generation. “On that basis, the Minister for Environment and Climate Change, Ryan Smith, and his jurisdiction, which the EPA sits under, would need to be engaged in this matter.” He said noise issues related to operating wind farms as well as those that had live permits but were yet to be constructed. “Under existing permit conditions issued by the previous Labor government, and current regulations, there is a requirement to provide independent pre-construction noise monitoring and
operating noise monitoring in compliance with Australian standards. “I understand that noise levels vary day by day with climatic and turbine generation variables – on any one day or night noise compliance can vary, not only between wind farm developments, but turbine to turbine.” Mr Ramsay said the sheer volume and consistency of concerns raised with him meant the issue needed “ongoing, and serious, consideration”. In February, a draft report by the National Health and Medical Research Council found there was no reliable or consistent evidence that wind farms directly caused adverse health effects in humans.
Estuary ovals open with festival THE Estuary community at Leopold celebrated the opening of its brandnew sporting fields with a “sports festival” event on the weekend. The ovals were officially opened with a ribbon-cutting ceremony by Villawood Properties’ executive director Rory Costelloe and City of Greater Geelong Cheetam Ward councillor Rod Macdonald, before about 500 Estuary residents and the local community. Cr Rod McDonald praised the efforts of Villawood Properties for its contribution to the new sports ovals and confirmed that the City of Greater Geelong would continue to work with the local community to develop change room facilities at the site. Villawood Properties executive director Rory Costelloe said the day was all about promoting a healthy,
active community with children encouraged to try their hand at a range of different sports including AFL, hockey, cricket, lacrosse, athletics and ultimate Frisbee. “These new ovals will provide more outdoor activity options for our kids, getting them out of the house away from their Xboxes and Nintendos. “We’re very excited about the possibilities for this new complex and the amount of different sporting clubs that could potentially make Estuary their home. “We’re also very proud to support more than 20 local community groups in the region, in particular Leopold Football Netball Club, Leopold Auskick and the Leopold CFA who all assisted us in making this event the success it was.”

Kevin Egan, Warick Brown and Ian Gilbank, following the announcement $6,5000 had been raised for Torquay RSL.
THE third running of the Surf Coast Times Torquay Cup was held in beautiful sunshine and saw $6,500 raised towards Torquay RSLâ€™s Gallipoli centenary Anzac Day commemoration next year. Nearly 200 people attended the function in the Breissis Stand at Geelong Racing Club on Friday, and bought in generously to the raffle which featured prizes donated by local businesses. Torquay RSL president Ian Gilbank spoke movingly about the Anzac Day commemoration planned for next year, and thanked everyone for their generosity with the money raised
to go towards offsetting the cost of a memorial garden, and Dawn Service which will likely be attended by 15,000 people. The cost of both tributes is in the tens of thousands of dollars. Surf Coast Times advertising director Warick Brown thanked Jetts Fitness, Gboards, artist Nick Morris, Torquay Mitre 10 and Saltair Spa who donated prizes. He also thanked the Geelong Racing Club and everyone in attendance, as a percentage of the gate receipts went towards the fundraising total. Seatlleite won the cup from Stormy Bill.

Some roads close in forests and parks BY JAMES TAYLOR SOME roads and tracks in Victoria’s forests and parks have been temporarily closed for winter and spring, with more to follow next month, as part of an annual program. The Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) and Parks Victoria run the seasonal road closure program to ensure driver safety as well as protect forest and park roads from damage during the cooler months. DEPI state roads and bridges planning manager Tony Dowler said some forest roads and tracks closed on May 12, while more would be closed from June 13 when the track surfaces are most likely to be damaged by vehicles. “The early closures are necessary in some parts of the state because the roads and tracks in our parks and forests have the potential to become very wet. “The closures are important because our forest roads and tracks become much more difficult for drivers to use safely over this period. “Some forest tracks would suffer significant damage if they were left open all year round so we
assess them each year and then after consultation with key stakeholders including Four Wheel Drive Victoria close any that require it.” Parks Victoria general manager of regional services Chris Rose said that by protecting park roads and tracks, erosion could be reduced and the amount of silt washed into rivers, creeks and reservoirs could be limited. “We want everyone who uses the roads and tracks in our forests and parks to make sure they know which ones are still open over winter and stick to those during the closure period. “Most of the roads and tracks are re-opened in early November, in time for the Melbourne Cup weekend. “As always, we want anyone driving in our parks and forests to stay on the designated routes, take their rubbish home and take particular care with campfires.” For those wanting to plan their trip, head to the Public Access Map site in the recreation and tourism section at depi.vic.gov.au. For maps of the early closures in parks, check the “safety/closures and conditions” section at parks.vic.gov.au.
They have talent
Grade 3 pupils Eric Loone and Rhys Cameron have won the final of the “Mount Duneed’s Got Talent” competition, held at Mount Duneed Regional Primary School earlier this month. The two boys took out first prize for their original rap song about bullying being uncool and urging compassion in the playground. Second place went to Prep trio Lily Cameron, Chelsea Hamilton and Hayley Lindner for their rendition of Katy's Perry's “Roar” while donning tiger ears and tails. Third place was a tie between Charlotte Van Cleef’s solo from Annie and a dance and gymnastic routine from Ellie Polyzos and Ebony Paull. The competition was initiated by school captains Lachlan Gemmill, Clayton Paull, Mercedes Armstrong and Georgie Hager to encourage the self confidence and esteem of their peers.

Otway tiger trail could extend to Birregurra
BY JAMES TAYLOR A STEERING committee of people from the Otway hinterland will help guide the development of a feasibility study to establish whether it is possible to extend the Tiger Rail Trail from Forrest to Birregurra. The committee will work with Colac Otway Shire and specialist trail planning consultancy Transplan to investigate the practicalities, challenges and potential benefits from developing the trail. The rail trail derives its name from the “Tiger”, a 1936 Dodge sedan converted to run on rails and painted yellow with diagonal black stripes, which ran between Birregurra, Forrest, Barwon Downs and Deans Marsh until 1952. The line was closed in 1957. Shire mayor Lyn Russell said the feasibility study would examine the costs and issues in establishing the complete rail trail, as well as potential economic and health benefits. The study will also determine which sections of the former railway corridor are still in public

ownership, and possible alternative routes, such as water supply channels and road reserves. “The existing seven kilometre rail trail north of Forrest is well used and, together with the Forrest Mountain Bike Park, has stimulated visitation to the area and new business opportunities,” Cr Russel said. “Rail trails cater to a different market to mountain bike parks and have proven to be a boon for small towns.” She said the project included a community engagement phase, in which Transplan would talk to community groups, land owners and other interested parties. The committee comprises Mike Halliburton from Mike Halliburton and Associates; Jan Greig from Friends of the Tiger Rail Trail; Bob Brooks from the Forrest Community Group; Ian Court from the Birregurra Community Group; Mike Maher from Transplan; Phil Currie from Regional Development Victoria; Will Buchanan from Barwon Water; Colac Otway Shire’s Cr Brian Crook and council representatives Ian Seuren, Don Lewis, Adam Lehmann, Paula Gardiner and Adrian Healy.

Princes Highway traffic to be moved over VICROADS has advised that traffic was to be moved on Tuesday afternoon onto eight kilometres of new lanes on the Princes Highway between the Geelong Ring Road in Waurn Ponds and west of Hendy Main Road. There will be revised speed limits for this section of the highway until May 27. Drivers are advised to allow for extra travel time and expect minor delays during this time. Drivers should remain alert to the changed traffic conditions when travelling through the area and to obey all roadwork signs and speed limits. The traffic switch will allow work to begin on the remainder of the duplicated road.
Council performance regulations tightened THE state government has continued its changes to municipal government, announcing the start of new performance and reporting regulations for Victoria’s 79 councils. It is claimed the new regulations will make councils more accountable for how they spend ratepayers’ money, assisting in improving council efficiencies, and driving downward pressure on rates. The new regulations have replaced 10-year-old rules which ended over Easter. For more information about the new framework and regulations, visit localgovernment.vic. gov.au.

Local film shows the talent of Torquay BY TIFFANY PILCHER
A LOCALLY shot short film brimming with potential was launched in Torquay over the weekend with a screening at the Torquay Bowls Club. The Pianist was filmed in locations around Torquay and Jan Juc and centres on a 14-year-old singer-songwriter who is struggling with personal issues when he meets a young girl who changes his outlook on life. The Bad Hat Films production features talented actors from Torquay and Geelong, and their work could soon be seen around the world with the The Pianist now being entered in local and

international film festivals. Producer Denise Hurley said the launch was a great success and alludes to big things in the future for the actors and the film. “We had such a fantastic response and the director is now considering making a series of follow-up films. “Frank Dixon, the lead actor, performed some
songs on the night and it was sensational. “He has so much talent and we really feel this could be the beginning of a great career for him as well as many of the other actors.” Ms Hurley said the dramatic Torquay landscape became a character in itself throughout the film. “We were fortunate to be able to use Torquay’s spectacular scenery as a backdrop for the film and it
really brought everything together. “You see the park, those fantastic cliffs and we even got a rainbow and some rain that added colour we hadn’t even planned on. “It’s great promotion for the area and quite a moving film, we couldn’t be more pleased.” The Pianist trailer can be viewed at vimeo.com/88858223 (contains explicit language).

Birds named for famous breaks VILLAWOOD Properties’ Armstrong community celebrated the official naming of its pelicans in the wetlands this week, after a competition was held to give the majestic birds their own identity. The Geelong and surrounding community was invited to nominate potential names and voted for their favourite entries via Facebook. Torquay resident Jamie Mills provided the winning entry, with the four pelicans to be known as Haystacks, Winkipop, Bells and Rincon, named after four of the region’s most iconic surf breaks. Villawood Properties executive director Rory Costelloe said the names were fitting and would forever tie the birds and the Armstrong community to the region.
IN BRIEF Country Women Association coming to Geelong THE Country Women’s Association of Victoria is holding their 86th annual general meeting and state conference at The Pier Geelong from May 29 to May 31. On May 30 from 10.30am, “Performing Arts Presents” will be held at Costa Hall with the public invited to attend. Entry fee $18. The historical occasion will be the first time in 86 years the CWA conference has been held in Geelong, with about 800 members from all parts of Victoria attending. For more information, phone Lynette Wilson on 5251 3379 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don’t stand by - stand up to racism in soccer
The pelicans have names – Bells stretches its wings, while Rincon takes a fish from the water.
“We think these names are perfect; they will really resonate with the community and the region. “Getting the community involved in this way creates a firm tie with Armstrong and a real sense of pride for our future residents. “We think it’s really important that we offer our community these opportunities to be involved in building Armstrong.” An amazing story has also come out of the competition, with future Armstrong resident Louise Carter and her family hailing from the same Tasmanian town as the artist who created the pelicans.
“We are relocating to Armstrong from Tasmania and by complete coincidence, happen to come from the same place as the artist, Folko Kooper,” she said. “It’s been amazing seeing all the sculptures sitting in a field in rural Tasmania only to arrive here and see them in the exact place we have chosen to move to. It must be a sign! “We love the pelicans and we are really enjoying seeing Armstrong come together. We can’t wait to live there.” For more information about Armstrong please call 1300 710 726 or visit the sales centre at 465 Surf Coast Highway, Mount Duneed.
FOOTBALL Federation Victoria (FFV) and VicHealth have joined forces to empower soccer clubs and their players, officials and spectators to respond when they witness racism. “Don’t Stand By. Stand Up!” aims to support the soccer community in responding and intervening safely when raced-based discrimination is seen or heard. The campaign will focus on racism in all its forms, from subtle exclusion, to overt verbal abuse on and off the field. An online survey found 96 per cent of FFV members were will ing to take the plrdge, but 70 per cent were unsure of their club’s policies on reporting a racist incident. It will officially kick off at 2pm on Sunday at the NPL match between Melbourne Knights and Port Melbourne Sharks. All 343 FFV clubs will be invited to take the pledge. For more information, head to footballfedvic.com.au.

That makes it three ANGLESEA’S Molly Powell and Geelong’s Adam Lynch claimed the Be the Influence Victorian Longboard Titles at Point Impossible over the weekend, both doing so for the third year running. In perfect two- to three-foot conditions all weekend, over 60 of the state’s top longboarders battled it out. Two-time reigning titleholder Adam Lynch excelled in the perfect conditions mixing massive cutbacks and nose riding skills to win every heat throughout the weekend. “It’s been a good event and really good to call off the open finals yesterday to wait for better waves today,” Lynch said on Sunday. “We got perfect ‘Possos’ all day today and some nice weather to go with it. “I don’t really surf longboards much outside of the competitions, but I really wanted to win this year more than any other year so I’m stoked I took it out.” The closest challenge to Lynch was Michael Pinney from Point Lonsdale who placed second behind Lynch in both rounds. Pinney went on to take out the Over 35 Men’s division and placed second overall in the Open Men’s ratings. Will Cousins from Torquay and Liam GriggKennelly from Aireys Inlet placed in third and fourth overall in the ratings. In the Open Women’s division, Molly Powell cruised to her third consecutive year atop the Victorian rankings. “The waves were so much fun out there. It was a little bit hit and miss with the bigger sets because some of them closed out but the smaller ones were awesome and there were plenty of waves to go around,” Powell said. With a mix of smooth and powerful surfing, Powell dominated both the rounds over Melbourne’s Lucy Walsh and Aireys Inlet’s Morgan Grigg-Kennelly, who ended up tied in second on the ratings. Kate Lawler from Torquay finished in fourth spot.
One of the standouts of the day was Under 18 Boys competitor Ben Considine from Barwon Heads who put on an incredible display of surfing to take the division out over Adam Lalor from Apollo Bay. Considine was the only competitor to score a perfect 10 point ride throughout the whole weekend, scoring one on the Saturday and one on the Sunday. In the Round 2 final, he came close to scoring the perfect heat with a 10 point ride and a near perfect 9.93. The Under 18 Girls was a tight fought battle with Morgan Griggs-Kennelly taking out both the rounds across the weekend. Abbie Firns from Ocean Grove and Isabelle Bond from Torquay ended up tied in

Basic services need a Hon. Terry Mulder, MP boost on the Bellarine Minister for Public Transport Minister for Roads
Dear Editor, Recent newspaper reports of the closure of police stations at Portarlington, Drysdale and Queenscliffe are very worrying and are especially so with booming populations in growth areas on the Bellarine. The closures are surprising as they contradict the strong law and order messages in the state government’s campaign at the last election. Further, our ambulance service is also under great stress due to officers leaving because of a still unresolved agreement on pay rates and conditions. If the state government can’t provide these basic services, elderly people in particular will feel vulnerable and may consider leaving the district. This predicament is not helped by the proposed privatisation of our aged care residential facility, Ann Nichol House, and the lack of intervention by state Health Minister David Davis to protect Crown land and address community concerns.
we are locking up on Manus Island and Nauru, with little hope of release, people who are entitled to our protection under the UN Refugee Convention, which he quotes. Is this an Aussie fair go? Thirdly, what is the “accepted process” that these people are supposed to have followed? Joining a queue at the Australian Embassy in Kabul? Many have fled for fear of their lives a long way from any Australian embassy. Where is the queue that they have bypassed? How can they be expected to join an orderly queue, even if one existed? Fourthly, he asserts that closing detention centres in Australia will save the taxpayer money. What about the cost of paying to have them imprisoned offshore estimated to be more than $3 billion in 2013-14? Closing those offshore centres offers the real opportunity for saving. If we are going to have a debate on this serious issue, where a case can be made for both sides, it is not helpful to inflame the discussion by using arguments which can be demonstrated to be wrong.
Strathmore Drive 12 years ago. If anyone else would like to know the detail or any other details about my personal life, I would be happy to share them. I do admit to being hypercritical (as reported) at times, but I presume “Joanne” finds me hypocritical – that is her prerogative. I will continue to speak out against development, and policy at all levels of government that I consider detracts from the future wellbeing of our community. PS. In reference to Joanne’s suggestion that I am trying to “lock the place up”, I do confess to having a “Lock the Gate” sticker on my car and house in support of those in all communities under threat from unconventional gas mining.

Dear Editor, In response to Joanne Wilson’s letter “No faith in association” (May 8). The 3228 Residents Association (RA) is an appropriately registered association that has at its core, a commitment to represent the views of the community of the 3228 postcode, to local, state, and federal government representatives. By definition, an association is a group of people, in this case a number who are in the committee and a greater number who are members. I am the founding member and president of this association. I would like to take this opportunity to challenge Joanne Wilson in regard to her very personal and inappropriate attack on Sue O’Shanassy, our very hard-working and dedicated secretary, and Ms Wilson’s misleading comments in regard to the 3228RA. Firstly, Sue is not the “organiser” of the association. I founded it, and it is run by the committee as per the rules that govern it. Should Ms Wilson wish to take anyone to task in regard to the values and intent of this association, then I would encourage her to question my integrity and motivation, as it was I who set the framework for this association. Secondly, 3228RA is not and never has been against development, we are focused on ensuring that the community voice is heard. The association

Dear Editor, The letter from Ray Page (“Another page in the debate”, May 15) contains numerous errors which should not be allowed to pass unanswered. Firstly, the term “illegal” is a derogatory term used to blacken the image of asylum seekers so that we will think they have done something wrong and therefore are not worthy of our sympathy. Neither Ray Page nor anyone else to my knowledge has credibly indicated which laws they have broken. The case was well argued by Jean Preston in the accompanying letter (“Protect humanity and compassion”, May 15). It is not illegal to seek asylum. It is time to stop using such a term of abuse. Secondly, he asserts that “these people are not seeking asylum... they are predominantly... seeking a better life”. Not true, Ray. The vast majority (close to 80 per cent) when their claims are properly assessed are found to be refugees. This means that
Dear Editor, In reply to Joanne Wilson’s letter “No faith in association” (May 8). I am not anti-development. In the 43 years that I have lived in this community I have seen countless residential developments – some good, some not so good. In that time I have objected to one, that I recall. I support the Surf Coast Shire’s attempt to moderate growth and direct it to an area of existing and planned future infrastructure. This policy reflects the results of lengthy consultation, undertaken by the council. I believe the majority of residents also support this policy, as evidenced by who they elected to represent them at the last council elections. I don’t wish to lock out anyone – I welcome the diversity that newcomers bring to our town, especially if they actively participate in making our community a more vibrant place to live.

was founded in order to promote accountability, transparency, and a community consultative approach within firstly the local government, then state and federal governing bodies. What we do oppose is having vested interests and the state government ignoring the wishes of the community and the council, and forcing inappropriate development onto this community. We are opposed to the 2040 consultative process being ignored; we are opposed to developers and large organisations taking this community and the council to VCAT in order to force through self-interested projects against the wishes of the community; we are opposed to vested interests interfering with our council process by attacking the credibility and independence of our duly elected representatives on the council and we are opposed to a planning minister calling in planning applications so that they avoid all public debate and scrutiny. Finally, I would like to invite Ms Wilson to join the 3228RA. We are a broad organisation that holds a breadth of opinions and ideals. All who hail from this postcode are welcome regardless of political persuasion, attitude towards development, or any of the many contentious issues that confront this community. All you need to do is provide us with proof that you are in fact a resident of the community and pay your fees. You will be required to observe the charter of the organisation and work towards true community consultation. You can find us on Facebook or at our website 3228ra.org. Sid Pope President 3228RA
More support needed Dear Editor, I write on behalf of the Mental Illness Fellowship of Australia to ask your readers to become aware it is time we all took more action to support people
who have Schizophrenia. It is Australiaâ€™s last â€œbig undiscussable illnessâ€?. The simple fact is that it is very misunderstood and affects up to one million Australians. We want to make readers aware that there is an important free service that can support people in your area. This free service is for people living with mental illness and their carers and family members, to help them find the support they need. The initiative is called â€œMiNetworksâ€? and local people in your area will be referred to the information and services they need by simply calling 1800 985 944. You can also go to minetworks.org.au. It is astonishing how much stigma there is around schizophrenia in the community. Many think it is scary, hopeless, violent and untreatable. That is simply inaccurate. schizophrenia is a mental health condition. It can be managed. People with schizophrenia do not have a â€œsplit personalityâ€?. They have one personality like everyone else. We ask people to lobby local politicians and demand better services and more funding to support people with mental illness. It is very disturbing to know that only about half the people affected by schizophrenia are even accessing clinical assistance. In regional areas, services to support people are â€“ at best â€“ sparse. National Schizophrenia Awareness Week ran from May 11. Schizophrenia is a common illness. It is treatable. Recovery and a good quality of life is possible for most people. Anyone wanting more information should go to mifa.org.au. I want to specifically pay tribute to all the people in your local area supporting people with mental health issues. The amazing and vital work of carers must be applauded by us all. David Meldrum Mental Illness Fellowship of Australia chief executive officer
Why shut it down? Dear Editor, The Surf Coast Air Action (SCAA) group calls to shut down the Anglesea Power Station are more about individual wants than the environment. The station has the lowest greenhouse gas emission intensity and is the most efficient coal fired unit in the state. It is fitted with an air quality management system, which unlike scrubbing systems reduces exposure to all emissions and is one of few units able to prove it meets all requirements set by the EPA. In fact, one of biggest contributors to poor local air quality is household wood heater emissions. Itâ€™s likely the average person has more to fear from vehicle emissions when crossing the street. The mine and power stationâ€™s fire systems and trained personal provided refuge during the Ash Wednesday fires. The Anglesea township protection plan 2009 states the coalmine to the north west provides an extensive fire break. Independent investigations into health and environmental impacts show the operation is safe and supports the heath of the Anglesea River. Accusations that school children are at risk questions the diligence of the EPA, the shire and the Education Department, who approached the power station for use of the land to build a school. The Surf Coast Air Action group alarm and mislead the community using unrelated data with intent to shut down the station which directly employees 83 people. Posting signage and internet images falsely depicting a â€œpollutedâ€? town is damaging to tourist flow and is inconsiderate to local business. We all agree a renewable future is ideal but with wind farms only generating 30-40 per cent of rated capacity they need back-up generation and the Anglesea station has infrastructure well placed to integrate and support future renewable power.

Know more about on-farm composting
BY DEAN WEBSTER
CAMPERDOWN Compost Company (CCC) started 16 years ago in Camperdown. Over the last five years, CCC has pioneered on-farm composting at dairy farms in the south-west of Victoria. This season, more than 60,000 tonnes of compost was made on dairy farms managed by CCC and this compost has been used on more than 25,000 hectares of farm land from Deans Marsh to Portland. Since October last year, CCC has been making compost on more than 40 farms in the Geelong region. The company has developed a system where compost can be made cost effectively and directly on your farm. Camperdown Compost Companyâ€™s
Tony Martin invites commercial and lifestyle farmers to an information day next Wednesday at Ravens Creek Farm in Moriac. The information session will give an insight into how the compost is made on farms around Geelong and how it can be integrated into farming systems or applied to pastures, orchards and vineyards. â€œCompost can be used in place of chemical fertilisers,â€? Mr Martin said. â€œWe will present some of the great outcomes we have seen, including reducing sowing costs, deeper root systems and reduced pesticide and herbicide use. â€œMany of these results have led to lower input costs for the farmers and a great result for the environment. â€œThere will also be some semi-
completed compost rows on site, finished compost and our compost turner to take a look at.â€? The guest speaker will be Andrew Whiting, a dairy farmer from Simpson, who is noted for being among the very top dairy farmers in Victoria. Andrew moved to a composting based system several years ago and will talk about his on farm experiences, from why he changed to this system to some of the changes he has seen and measured on his farm. Mr Martin said that all farmers, no matter the size of the land they work, were most welcome to attend. The information day will be held on May 28 at Ravens Creek Farm, 740 Hendy Main Road, Moriac from 1pm. For more information, phone Tony Martin on 0417 527 990.

With a rye grin, pasture king welcomes help BY DEAN WEBSTER RYEGRASS remains the king of forages but chicory and tall fescue are also showing some promise for farmers, according to Frank Mickan from Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI). Most farmers rely on ryegrass as the cheapest source of feed and this will
not change in the foreseeable future. However, the cost-price squeeze is never ending and although it may wax and wane (presently, it is more favourable), farmers must seek out whatever feed advantage they can, to stay ahead in the long term. â€œSome younger folk coming into the industry are looking outside the existing long-held view of the pasture box, and are either questioning or actually trying
different species in different situations,â€? Mr Mickan said. â€œThe seed companies are always on the search locally and increasingly, internationally, for better genetics for ryegrass but also different species of pasture and forage crops.â€? In higher rainfall areas, ryegrass is king. It is easy to grow, lasts reasonably well in most years, and has relatively

high production with good quality while vegetative. Over time, plants will adapt to specific situations based on many factors such as soil type, soil fertility, competitive advantage, climatic conditions, etc. Donâ€™t expect anyone to breed ryegrass to grow 12 months of the year and last many years. It has slow growth in cold weather and does not perform overly well
in hot, dry weather. Farmers are looking at other species to grow and provide feed, preferably for grazing rather than conserving. Two species that are showing some promise are chicory and plantain. They are not for everyone or for all situations, and do depend on certain requirements such as the right soil type, weather conditions and appropriate management.

Ballarat cattle market report BY DEAN WEBSTER
MONDAY’S yarding of 399 cattle at Ballarat was slightly down this week with the usual following of buyers. Quality was again mixed and contained mostly store-conditioned young cattle along with a few finished grown cattle. Stewarts livestock agent Lockie Shaw said the job had come back a bit from a few weeks ago but was pretty solid on the day, selling clients’ steers ranging in weight from 450 to 550 kilograms for 160 to 185 cents and best beefy cows up to 150 cents. Stewarts sold a pen of Angus steers averaging 508 kilograms on behalf of Jason Beatson from Smythes Creek for 173 cents
a kilogram yielding an average of $878. The yarding comprised of 147 steers, 163 heifers, 70 cows and 19 bulls. Prices for the C2 and C3 young cattle fluctuated a little but were mostly between last week’s range of 140 to 185 cents a kilogram, and were picked up by processors and restockers. Processors paid up to 185 cents and even a single C4 yearling made 193.6 cents. Restockers paid 175 to 199 cents a kilogram for the best of the C2 steers. The D2 grade of plain quality yearlings sold from 128 to 139 cents to processors and from 115 to 171 cents to restockers. The few good C3 and C4 grown steers made 174 to 189 cents with extra heavy
weight C6’s at 140 cents a kilogram. The 2 and 3 score grown heifers were from 140 to 160 cents for most, with the best 3 scores at 170 to 174 cents a kilogram. Last week’s yarding of 585 at Colac’s fat sale was 189 down on the previous week although prices were mainly unchanged, except for cows which were 5 to 10 cents a kilogram higher. Quality was again mixed for buyers who competed on the 124 grown steers, 22 grown heifers, 309 young cattle, 115 cows and 15 bulls. Most C2 and C3 young cattle sold between 160 to 185 cents to restockers and processors with the better vealers to processors from 190 to 205 cents and yearling steers to 190 cents.
Australian Lamb Colac receives approval to chill BY DEAN WEBSTER COLAC Otway Shire has approved the construction of a 500 pallet freezer store and two freezer chillers worth $1.8 million for a Colac abattoir. Australian Lamb Colac plans to undertake building work on its existing meat processing site.
Farmer of the year awards approach
The proposed works would allow meat to be stored on site prior to distribution. Colac Otway mayor Lyn Russell said that a substantial amount of meat was stored off-site at a facility in Melbourne which would no longer be available. “Australian Lamb has told council that the freezer facilities will improve productivity, operations and safety on site.
THE Australian Farmer of the Year awards continue to attract highcalibre nominations from across a broad range of agricultural pursuits nationwide. There are 12 award categories and an overall Australian Farmer of the Year award who is chosen from
“They have advised that there will be no change to the hours of operation of the plant, no additional noise, odour or waste. “The provision of on-site storage is in fact expected to reduce truck movements with only minimal changes to the traffic movement.

This year schools and community groups are also encouraged to host local sleepouts to help contribute to the fundraising tally, and to raise awareness of the 105,000 Australians sleeping rough every night. St Vincent de Paul Society Victoria chief executive officer Cam Battaglia, said that the CEO Sleepout helped sustain many of the society’s in-
demand homelessness services. “Through the money raised in Victoria last year we were able to continue supporting people in need through services such as five soup van operations distributing 241,000 meals per year to the marginalised and the homeless, and tutoring for disadvantaged students. “The CEO Sleepout not only raises vital funds to support homelessness services, it’s also about advocating for the needs of people without adequate housing. “This year we are calling on government to address the growing housing affordability crisis, which is a leading cause of homelessness in Australia.”
Held at Etihad Stadium, this year’s event will be the fifth Victorian Vinnies CEO Sleepout. It will take place simultaneously in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Canberra, Adelaide, Hobart, Darwin, Wollongong and Newcastle.

TENNIS IN GEELONG
Thursday 22 May 2014
New home, new era for ’east uniting IT’S a great feeling to report a really good news story about a local tennis club, but it wasn’t looking good at one stage, when Geelong East Uniting got the stunning news that their clubrooms and courts were to be acquired and sold from under them. It seems that the site owners, the Uniting Church, Victoria, had incurred a huge financial loss following a failed venture to build a college in the northern suburbs of Melbourne that had left them several million dollars in the red. This happened mid-2013 and they then opted to sell Uniting Church property throughout the state to get them back into financial stability. One of the properties earmarked for sale turned out to be the Denman Street site, housing Geelong East Uniting Church Tennis Club. Club founder and current senior rep Neil Lamond was, understandably, devastated by the news, and given just a few months notice to move on. But to where? The very existence of the long-standing club was in jeopardy – no courts, clubrooms and limited finance too. Things were certainly looking grim. But ever-resourceful Neil found a door slightly ajar – the unused courts at Breakwater Reserve, in Tanner Street, Breakwater, where that club had closed its doors in 2009. It was a possibility, a window of opportunity, perhaps – and Neil pursued the idea with City of Greater Geelong. The wheels were turning in the right direction and when the club was given a “relocation grant” from
the Uniting Church, the money was there to make what was a possibility, even a dream, into a reality. Initial discussions with council representatives, especially Jake McMinn, really got the ball rolling and with Colin Hatton coming on board as project manager and lots of help from Paul Senior, the plans to resurface the three old asphalt courts into plexipave were full steam ahead. Everything went by the script and come May 3, the first day of winter pennant, the courts were up and running, with the cricket clubrooms being utilised – by tennis players this time! Top priority is to get a fourth court constructed and this is definitely on ’East’s agenda, with the unused basketball court adjoining the new courts set to become court number four sometime in the near future. Down the track, there are plans for clubrooms and getting the car park cleaned up – and the club members are fired up to see that done ASAP. Interestingly, the club has not lost a single member with this transition – how’s that for loyalty? The club had an “opening ceremony” on Sunday May 4, attended by council representatives, the Rev. Sani Vaeluaga and Austin Ward’s John Irvine, who spoke enthusiastically about the club, it’s
past, present and bright future. Despite some rain and a planned Powercor power outage (a generator was used!) the function went well with a crowd of around 60 enthusiasts attending to welcome the new ’East era! Neil Lamond played originally with St George’s Tennis Club in the 1940s (for nigh on 25 years) and when that club disbanded in the mid-1970s, he was instrumental in establishing what came to be known as Geelong East Uniting Church Tennis Club. Shenton and St Andrew’s clubs also ceased to exist and members from there also joined up at ’East. The “new” club (they’re still Geelong East Uniting!) is fielding six senior teams and two in juniors this season and is always welcoming of new players. Interested? Give Neil a call on 5221 3560 or drop in on Thursday afternoon for a cuppa and a hit of tennis - everyone’s invited! At Breakwater, that is! It’s been a fantastic outcome for this longestablished club and its dedicated membership. The fickle finger of fate? The power of prayer? One man’s burning passion to keep the club going? The Geelong East Uniting Church story is bound up in all three of these factors!
Rev. Sani Vaeluaga with Cr. John Irvine cut the ribbon to officially open the “new club”.
At the Geelong East clubrooms - a legacy of some wonderful memories and great times.
Junior Masters new date THE worst weather imaginable greeted participants in Moolap Tennis Club’s Racquet Works Junior Masters day on Sunday May 4, causing a postponement of the event.

Tomas Callister, Jamie Smith and Adam Rhodes of Barrule are premiering Manx music to Australian audiences at the National Celtic Festival in Portarlington next month.
BY TIFFANY PILCHER A NEW musical force is about to hit Australia, with Isle of Man power trio Barrule debuting Manx music at the National Celtic Festival in Portarlington in June. Consisting of frontman and accordion whiz Jamie Smith, gifted fiddleplayer Tomas Callister, and versatile accompanist Adam Rhodes on bouzouki, Barrule formed in 2012 and has already spread the little-known style throughout the world. The tiny Isle of Man covers only around 570 square metres and has been self-governed since its parliament was created by Viking invaders more than 1,000 ago.
Due to its size and small total population of 84,500 people, the Manx language is considered critically endangered along with much of its traditional music. With hundreds of years of history on the line, Manx styles have recently come to the forefront of the Celtic music scene. “There is a bit of a resurgence going on at the moment, everyone knows Scottish music and Irish music but far fewer people are aware of Manx music,” Rhodes said. “That seems to be changing, there is a great band scene here and some terrific acts coming out of the area. “To the untrained ear, Manx music sounds like a cross between Irish and Scottish music, but it has some nuances
that sets it apart and once people hear that, they just love it. “This is the first time we’ll be in Australia as a band and we’re so keen to get out there and share our music with a whole new crowd.” Barrule’s sound is heavily influenced by traditional Manx music, which is steeped in the island’s rich history and Celtic and Viking ancestry, but with an exuberant and contemporary twist. Their first, self-titled album was released last year with the backing of the Manx Heritage Foundation and recently won them a Spiral Earth Award for best debut. Now, they’re back to the drawing board for their sophomore album, expected to be released next year.
“THERE IS A BIT OF A RESURGENCE GOING O N AT T H E M O M E N T, EVERYONE KNOWS SCOTTISH MUSIC AND I R I S H M U S I C B U T FA R FEWER PEOPLE ARE AWARE OF M A N X M U S I C ,”
“It’s all taking shape now and since we’ve been playing together for a bit longer now, we’re fairly confident with how it’s going,” Rhodes said. “It’s really energetic but keeping with the Manx style. “We want to keep it as traditional as
possible, that’s really important to us, but we also want it to have that little something extra. “We’re hoping to play some of the new songs at the festival too – we want to premiere them in Australia!” The National Celtic Festival has also made another line-up announcement featuring highly anticipated acts including the Beaton Sisters Band, independent Australian theatre company Vessel, Jack and the Box featuring Clíodhna Ní Ruairc, Anna Armstrong and Jordan O’Farrell plus many more. The National Celtic Festival will be held in Portarlington from June 6 to 9. To purchase tickets and for more information including the full line up, visit nationalcelticfestival.com.

Wathaurong country to connect Torquay BY TIFFANY PILCHER A TORQUAY event beginning this weekend will celebrate the region’s rich Aboriginal history and encourage local people to unite while forming a close bond with the place they call home. Connecting to Country Aboriginal Arts Festival is set to be a week-long sharing of Aboriginal knowledge and wisdom through a series of community events and activities. The festival will open on Friday night at Danawa Community Garden with a Welcome to Country and smoking ceremony, traditional dances, group artworks and more. Activities will continue throughout the week including guided cultural walks, movie nights, bush tucker, kid’s activities and a celebration of Aboriginal surfing in conjunction with the National Indigenous Surfing Titles on Sunday. The event will close on Friday May 30, when there will be a community celebration with a campfire, community feast, jam session and open mic. Organised by Katja Nedoluha and Riley Evans with the support of local Aboriginal people and the traditional owners of the land, the festival is expected to bring a deeper understanding of the local land to all residents.
Ms Nedoluha said it’s important for everyone to understand the significance of the land to Indigenous people and to create their own meaningful links to the country. “For Aboriginal people, the land is inextricable to existence and nurtures them on a spiritual and emotional level. “After spending a few years in Broome, sitting with the mob and learning about dreamtime and bush tucker and how to use plants and trees to make boomerangs and other tools I came back and realised I knew nothing about this country at all. “A lot of people have a connection to this place through its beauty and its exterior, aesthetic qualities but nothing deeper. “I want to connect to the people who hold the stories and the wisdom of the area and I want to share that journey with others. “A festival like this has been in the hearts of the whitefella and blackfella communities for a long time and we want to pave the pathway to unite and move forward together.” Connecting to Country Aboriginal Arts Festival will be on Friday May 23 to Friday May 30. For more information about the festival, the events and activities on offer as well as the full program, visit pozible.com/project/180458.

Roo Twilights series announces final shows BY TIFFANY PILCHER SINCE commencing in July last year, Roo Twilights has brought a string of Australia’s top musicians to Anglesea, and there are two more outstanding shows scheduled before the concert series comes to an end. On Saturday, Hunters and Collectors’ Jack Howard and the Ambassadors of Love will perform The Look of Love, The Songs of Burt Bacharach and Hal David. Fresh from a national tour with Hunters and Collectors that included shows supporting Bruce Springsteen, and a series of sensational A Day on the Green performances, Howard returns with his beautiful Bacharach show. Known for his impressive trumpet skills, he has also performed with Midnight Oil, The Living End, You Am I, Little Red, Pete Murray and a host of other revered Australian acts. For The Look of Love, The Songs of Burt Bacharach and Hal David, Howard will perform alongside the Michael sisters, Heather and Marj, with John Berto on guitar, Rob Walker on bass, Greg Murray on drums and Amy Valent Curlis on
percussion as The Ambassadors of Love. Walker said the group’s performance will be true to Bacharach’s album, Reach Out. “They are stunning arrangements, and with the violin, flute, orchestral percussion and vibes, guitar, bass and drums the band does them justice, no doubt. “We play additional classics as well – it’s a great night, the songs are timeless.” The show will include songs that are loved all over the world such as “The Look of Love”, “Say A Little Prayer”, “Close To You”, “What The World Needs Now” and many more. The final show of the Roo Twilights series will be by celebrated vocalist, Eddi Reader on June 21. Reader will be joined by three superb artists in their own right: Boo Hewerdine, Alan Kelly and Ian Carr. Both concerts will take place at the Anglesea Golf Club, 1 Golf Links Road, Anglesea. Dinner and show, and show only ticket options are available and bookings are essential. For more information and to book, visit angleseagolfclub.com.au or call 5263 1582.
Jack Howard and the Ambassadors of Love are playing one of the last shows of the Roo Twilights series at Anglesea Golf Club this weekend.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY
Lost in the Nebbia IT’S easy to lose oneself in the Nebbia (fog), and equally as easy again to lose yourself in Nebbiolo. Nebbiolo (as in Nebbia) is a late ripening, black grape native to the Piedmont region located in the upper northwest Alba region of Italy in the foothills of the Alps, and is responsible for some of the finest, and most longlived wines in Italy. It’s a region that is renowned for being shrouded in fog and home to the two very famous villages of Barolo and Barbaresco located within the greater Piedmont region, that supply the most significant, prestigious and most expensive wines. Barolo – The powerhouse expression of the Nebbiolo grape – densely textured, substantial tannins, heady aroma. Barbaresco – more feminine in style with striking elegance and aromatic intensity, the wines here are a softer version of Nebbiolo. Nebbiolo is the “noblest” grape found here and is extremely fussy in respect to the soils it is grown in. It can be noticeably pale in colour, fragrantly complex aromatically speaking with suggestions of fresh red berry fruits, earthy/forest floor notes and wild herbs/pot pourri nuance, yet it’s the mix of sweet and savoury flavours that define the most common character descriptions of strong “tar and roses” alongside the indomitable tannins that pack so much punch into the overall structure of the wine. They’re quite “drying” in character, and combined with the noticeable natural acidity it can be a bit foreboding for the uninitiated, however, paired with red meat dishes, they seem to assimilate and fade from view. The two other most favoured red grape varieties are Barbera (the most widely planted and popular variety in the region) and Dolcetto, in that order. In the Langhe area within the province of Cuneo in Piedmont, the Nebbiolo based wines offer very good value at reasonable prices, thus we see more and more available in the market. Here are three levels of Piedmont value that should give you a good idea of what we’re talking about!
Maretti Langhe Rosso DOC 2012 ($20) Simply terrific value and a great introduction to the richness of the Barbera grape (70 per cent), and the nascent and mysterious nature of Nebbiolo (30 per cent), both woven together here to create a wine that is balanced, fresh and inviting with red berry fruits and herbs aromatics on the nose, backed up by dark chocolate plum fruit flavours, driven by the Barbera component, while the Nebbiolo adds structure in the form of fine acidity and tannins. Give it time to open up via decanting or drink over four nights and watch the wine reveal its soft, supple underbelly. Oh, and how cool is the packaging here? They’ve nailed it!
Benevelli Piero Langhe Nebbiolo 2012 ($35) Loved everything about this wine, the look – classic Italian packaging again, (in a very different but stylish way to the aforementioned Maretti), the varietal freshness, and of course the price, such value! The only shame here is the availability of the wine due to a recent article where the previous vintage received a 97/100 rating… Anyways, it’s got a fabulous core of rich red fruits, super fresh feel and lovely line and length on the palate and finish due to the beautiful natural inbuilt acidity. Vibrant and expressive, this really came alive over the two nights drinking, revealing a fleshy/chinotto esque complexity on the second night. Delicious, and very limited.
Conterno Fantino Sori Ginestra Barolo 2010 ($165) I recently attended a special tasting of select 2010 Barolo releases and was blown away I must say, and this flagship wine from one of the producers of the region is quite simply outstanding. This is a rich and full-bodied wine endowed with great texture, volume and depth of flavour with complex aromas of pine, menthol, tobacco and savoury herbs swirling around. Obviously, it needs time but it’s a kicker that’s for sure!

Growlers menu a winner for winter BY TIFFANY PILCHER WITH new owners, a returning chef and an exciting new winter menu, Growlers is dedicated to creating the perfect dining experience for the new season. Torquay locals Peter and Mandy Hansen took over the iconic restaurant in December and have welcomed back local favourite Aaron Grennan as head chef. This week, they have unveiled their breakfast, lunch and dinner winter menus which are filled with delicious, hearty meals as well as an array of dishes that showcase Mr Grennan’s talent with fresh seafood. The menu is familiar yet fresh with pork belly, slow braised for 48 hours in apple cider and orange juice, served over smashed broccoli, with a citrus fruit relish and Shiraz poached pears; or oven-baked spatchcock slow braised in a rich pear, cherry and cider glaze served over Tuscan potato, zuchetti, pan fried dutch carrots, with a braising broth. For breakfast, enjoy bacon and eggs (any way) served over toasted Zeally Bay sourdough; a toastie; or poached eggs, with a green pea purée, over wilted kale layered on Zeally Bay sourdough, drizzled with white truffle oil. Mr Hansen said Mr Grennan had created a wonderful menu that the chef’s enjoy cooking. “A lot of the food is slow braised and there are rustic breads and hearty soups – everything you could want to warm you up. “We really wanted to bring consistency back to the restaurant with great food and regular hours and we really feel this menu does that.”
IN BRIEF Funding flows for Music Victoria LIVE music in Victoria is in safer hands this week as Music Victoria received a boost from the state government to the tune of $150,000. The independent advocacy group will use the cash, along with $100,000 from Arts Victoria to continue supporting musicians with professional development workshops, awards ceremonies and projects. The organisation’s work has resulted in the deregulation of all-ages gigs, the implementation of the agent of change principle, the live music best practice guide and the upcoming review of the EPA’s noise standards.
Sons of Sun ready to roll in Torquay
The Growlers team is excited to welcome customers to try their new winter menus and take advantage of their fantastic special offers throughout the year.
Growlers is open from 8.30am Monday to Friday and 8am on weekends. The dinner menu starts at 5pm and all day breakfasts are available until 4pm. Growlers is also offering a range of specials including 10 per cent off all meals for those with a
3228 postcode all year round, and $2 kids meals from Sunday to Thursday. To book a table and test out the tempting new menus, call Growlers on 5264 8455, or drop in at 23 The Esplanade, Torquay.
ROCK and roll theatre is coming to the Surf Coast with Sons of Sun – The Sam Phillips Story showing in Torquay on Sunday.

Singing for Fun welcomes guest leader
Lucy O’Grady will be a guest leader at Singing for Fun at the Bellbrae Hall on Friday May 30.
TALENTED local musician Lucy O’Grady will be a guest leader at Singing for Fun at the Bellbrae Hall on Friday May 30. A Jan Juc local, O’Grady’s latest project is as choir leader for The Bonnie Upwelling, a Torquay and Surf Coast community choir, which is becoming known for its quirky, fun and infectious music making around town. Although Lucy admits she does make her choir “work hard” to achieve musical goals, it is her background in music therapy that gives her the
ability to bring out the potential in people who may not have a strong belief in their own talents. Lucy says of working with choirs, “I love how collective singing can bring the experience of being one part of a beautiful whole”. Singing for Fun team member Gail Dyson is also involved with The Bonnie Upwelling and says Lucy “is able to gently coax the natural abilities out of all of us”. “She encourages and utilises our members’ talents on instruments and has us creating the kind of sound
we never thought possible.” A PhD in music therapy at Melbourne University and five years of working with women in prison creating musical theatre make Lucy O’Grady a perfect guest leader for Singing for Fun, whose collective philosophy is “Anyone can sing. It’s fun and it’s good for you”. Singing for Fun with Lucy O’Grady is at the Bellbrae Hall Friday May 30 from 6 to 8pm and costs $10/$7 concession. A delicious meal is included in the price. All welcome.

Locorriere walks right into new tour BY TIFFANY PILCHER DR HOOK fans get ready, lead vocalist, guitarist and songwriter Dennis Locorriere is heading to Geelong on Sunday as part of his first solo Australian tour in almost 15 years. In the 15 years Dr Hook was together, Locorriere toured the globe, breaking records in single and album sales, as well as show attendance numbers. Their songs “Sylvia’s Mother”, “Walk Right In”, “The Wild Colonial Boy” were top 10 hits around the world, reaching the number one spot on the charts in Australia. After disbanding in the late 80s, Locorriere went on to pen songs for artists such as Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, Helen Reddy and Olivia Newton-John. As a solo artist, Locorriere has released three critically acclaimed albums and continues to tour, bringing his unmistakable voice, superior musicianship, engaging personality and natural sense of humour to the stage. In his most intimate show yet, Locorriere takes Dr Hook’s Dennis Locorriere is touring Australia for the first time in 15 years and will be playing at GPAC on Sunday.

After years of rumours of an Australian tour, Locorriere said he couldn’t be more excited to finally make it back Down Under again. “It’s hard to believe that’s its actually going to happen. “The thing I’m most excited about is that I will be bringing everyone an up-close-and-personal show. “Just me, my guitars and 40 years of songs, from Dr Hook and beyond, as well as stories about my time with the band and what I’ve been up to since the last time we saw each other. “I know too well how quickly time flies by and, because I’m never certain of when I might return, I want to take this opportunity to get as intimate as I ever have with the Australian audiences.” Dennis Locorriere is performing at The Playhouse at GPAC as part of his Dr Hook and Beyond tour on Sunday May 25.

farm food AT HOME with Tony Le Deux
Tis always the season The change of seasons can be confusing. In the Northern Hemisphere there always seems to be a definite and dramatic change. In southern Australia it can be more subtle and sometimes ambiguous. Last week I felt like I should be at the beach. Beautiful sunny days with real warmth, yet we are nearly half way through the football season. I’m certain the weather will be vastly different as you read this article. As I write it is pouring with rain! Coming out of winter and into spring can be just as unpredictable. At school I remember the waft of Jasmine in the breeze signified athletics season. What does this have to do with food? In France and Italy the seasons dictate what is eaten and tradition how to prepare the meal. Many restaurants simply close for the winter. Seasonality of produce demands certain dishes are eaten at certain times. We are not so restricted in Australia and although a Frenchman would think it sacrilege, we enjoy many of the same dishes year round. Who would serve roast turkey in the middle of summer? We tend to eat roast meals year round. A Sunday roast is such a treat and in our house not uncommon to accompany the meat with six different vegetables. Cauliflower with cheese, roast potatoes, pureed peas, ratatouille, pumpkin, parsnip, onions and gravy. A dessert and coffee are mandatory and sometimes cheese and chocolates. Start by preparing the meat, usually lamb. Someone is sent to the garden for rosemary to poke into the lamb along with slivered garlic. Rub with salt, pepper and oil and its ready for the oven. Prepare the vegetables and make a béchamel sauce for cauliflower cheese while delegating the task of setting the table for about twelve. I think it’s an ideal number. Not too many that the cook is overwhelmed, but enough to spark some lively conversation and plenty of hands for doing the dishes. Below is how Guillaume Brahimi prepares ratatouille. I was watching a repeat of The French Food Safari recently and this recipe is wonderful. I often cook it as an accompaniment to roast lamb. The French may be shocked; a summer Provençale dish in autumn, but I think it’s perfect.
Ratatouille INGREDIENTS Extra virgin olive oil 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped Freshly ground black pepper 2 teaspoons of thyme leaves 2 red capsicum, diced 500 ml tomato juice
2 eggplants, diced Murray River salt flakes 4 zucchini, diced 1 onion, diced 1 kg tomatoes, seeded and diced Bunch of basil, chopped
METHOD Heat a generous splash of oil in a frying pan over low heat and add the eggplant and one-third of the garlic. Season with salt and pepper and sauté until tender. Tip into a large bowl. Return the pan to the heat and add more oil. Add the zucchini, another third of the garlic, half the thyme and some salt and pepper. Sauté until tender, then add to the bowl with the eggplant. Add more oil to the pan and sauté the onion, capsicum and remaining garlic and thyme until tender. Combine all the cooked vegetables in a pot. Add the tomatoes and juice and simmer gently for 1 1/2 hours. Remove from the heat, taste for seasoning and stir in the basil.

Torquay mum ready to Rock the Mole
BY TIFFANY PILCHER
WHEN Torquay mum Jaz Findlay found out she had stage-four melanoma in February she was devastated, but knew she wasn’t going to take the fight lying down. She has been battling the aggressive form of skin cancer with a series of scans, tests and four operations and was recently told her tumour had not made its way to her organs, and lymph nodes were clear. With an improved prognosis, Ms Findlay is taking action to help others fight melanoma by holding Rock the Mole, a fundraising event at the Torquay Hotel next Saturday night. There will be a rock-heavy line up of bands
including Battle Axe Howlers, Macondo Blowout, A Gazillion Angry Mexicans, as well as raffle and door prizes donated by local and national businesses. All money raised will go to The Melanoma Institute Australia for research, treatment and education. Ms Findlay said learning she had cancer was incredibly difficult, but she is determined to make a difference. “It was one of the most horrifying things I have ever been told. “The more research I did, the more terrified I became – for me, my family, my friends, but especially my 7-year-old son. “The Melanoma Institute Australia has been incredibly supportive so I found it imperative to raise
some money, and spread the word of the importance of skin checks!” Rock the Mole will be at the Torquay Hotel on Saturday May 31, entry is $15. Ms Findlay would like to thank everyone who has assisted in organising Rock the Mole, the bands – especially Mike Doleman of Battle Axe Howlers, The Torquay Hotel, 94.7 The Pulse, and all the companies that have donated prizes.

Owners Paul Young and Caron Zillawood have created a welcoming, friendly environment where customers can enjoy a casual dining experience or host a private function.
NOT everyone can enjoy ocean views and stunning sunsets at their workplace. Nor can they spend their day chatting and making new friends. So Caron Zillwood, owner of Ocean Grove’s Zebra Bar & Bistro, knows she is one of the lucky ones. She and husband Paul Young opened what is now known locally as Zebra Bar eight years ago and have created a welcoming, friendly environment where customers can enjoy a casual dining experience or host a private function. “Diners can look out onto the
ocean and the Ocean Grove township from our bistro lounge and our large enclosed north-west facing balcony,” Ms Zillwood said. “We want customers to relax, unwind, enjoy their Zebra experience, and be in no hurry to leave.” While Zebra Bar’s menu offers regular bistro fare including steaks, chicken parmagiana and seafood, the venue also boasts an Asian-inspired selection, which includes barbecued duck served atop a crunchy Asian salad, and seafood dishes with tangy Thai sauces. There are always at least three $10
specials on offer during lunch with dishes like salt and pepper calamari and chicken schnitzel. At dinner, the $25 mouthwatering King Island scotch fillet and porterhouse steaks top the eight nightly specials. Zebra Bar is also ideal for functions, whether an intimate sit-down wedding reception for 80 guests or a birthday, engagement or work function for up to 150 guests. Zebra Bar does not charge venue hire for functions, while drinks are charged at bar prices and function hosts can select a range of
finger food options tailored to suit their individual budget. Conveniently located in Ocean Grove’s main street with ample parking within metres, Zebra Bar provides a secure private upstairs venue. Zebra Bar is open daily from 11am, serving lunch until around 3.30pm. Bistro dinners are available Monday to Saturday from about 5.30pm. The venue closes Sunday nights once the summer season ends. For bookings call 5255 3961, email email@example.com, or visit zebrabar.com.au.

Change the meaning, change your life
BY BARBARA GRACE DURING May, more than a hundred people have joined us to Play In May and celebrate the art of “play” while tapping into more personal joy on a daily basis. Along the way we looked at our “play personalities” and kept a “play journal” to track the progress. It’s been huge fun, especially for me who had to think up creative ways to indulge myself for 10 minutes a day. Yeah, I know – hard life, but someone’s gotta do it. The whole process got me thinking about work and what it takes from us that we need to reconsider “play” as an optional extra in life. I hear many bemoan work-life imbalance and while it’s an issue caused by busy lifestyles, perhaps it’s more about finding the meaning in not only what we do but how we do it. It’s the “why” behind the “what” and “how” that can make the difference. Without this we’re chasing dreams and sometimes getting disappointed, giving up, eating another chocolate bar and watching yet another television series in the hope of reaching into someone else’s dreams to imagine a life beyond the everydayness
Fatigue? Digestive problems? Weak immune system? Call Naturopath
we’ve created. The question for me is, do we learn to love this treadmill, rather than just tolerate it, or do we look a little deeper and seek the meaning behind why we do what we do? Seeking meaning doesn’t mean navel gazing. It doesn’t mean having all the answers. It doesn’t mean living every moment as if the Dalai Lama is looking over your shoulder. It doesn’t mean lifestyle yoga retreats. It does involve, however, knowing the questions to ask. Not the ones that keep us scuttling round on a hamster wheel, but those that find a way of touching an inner nerve which at times can feel painful or liberating. It’s the answers we seek that add purpose to the questions we ask. While we all know that life’s a journey, it’s the story we create along the way that makes it interesting… or not. Registrations to study Modern Psychology are now open at schoolofmodernpsychology.com.au. Barbara Grace is the director of the School of Modern Psychology.
What’s your story saying about your journey?
To ice or not to ice – that is the question BY DR ERIN COFFEY AN INJURY occurred and first it was RICE – Rest, Ice, Compress, Elevate. Then it grew to RICER, adding on Refer. Now research is suggesting we’ve had it wrong all along, and complete rest and icing is actually delaying the healing process. In a recent study, athletes were told to exercise to the point that they developed extensive muscle soreness as a result of tissue damage. They found that although cooling delayed the swelling, the tissue healing was not quickened. Damaged tissues require our own innate healing properties – body, heal thyself. Inflammatory cells are sent to damaged areas to help repair the tissues.
Applying ice to reduce swelling actually delays the healing mechanisms by restricting the blood vessels and preventing the inflammatory cells from travelling to the injured area. You’ll often see football players on the sidelines with an ice pack and then shortly after they’re running around. Another study found that speed, strength, power and agility were all decreased when ice was left on for longer than 20 minutes. It was recommended that if ice is used at all, a maximum of five minutes with gradually warming should be applied upon returning to play. So how do you aid tissue recovery? Evidence is showing that loading the tissues (the opposite of rest) is best; functional rehabilitation, proprioception, balance, and range of motion, all of which can be applied by allied health practitioners. If you injure yourself, immediately stop what you are doing. Emergency medical attention
may be required if you have hit your head, suffered loss of consciousness, are confused or are unable to move. Open wounds should be checked and cleaned. Elevate the injured area (if it’s an ankle, elevate to above hip height when seated) - this will keep blood from pooling in the limb. Compression maybe applied by a trained first aid person to reduce leaking of fluid into injured tissues. Although the latest research is showing that ice is a hindrance rather than a help, it is a pain reliever so apply ice for up to 10 minutes, remove for 20 minutes and repeat once more. After any injury, I would suggest seeing your osteopath or other allied health practitioner so that they can give you sound advice and ensure that your body is in optimal health to heal. Dr Erin Coffey is an Osteopath at The Health Creation Centre in Ocean Grove.

Don’t be in the dark about macular degeneration OPSM WAURN Ponds optometrist Rowan Prendergast is urging local residents over 50 to not be in the dark regarding macular degeneration and to have their eyes tested during Macular Degeneration Awareness Week, which begins on Sunday. Macular degeneration, Australia's leading cause of severe vision loss and blindness, affects more than 1.15 million Australians over 50. Without appropriate prevention and treatment, this number is set to increase to 1.7 million by 2030, given our rapidly ageing population. Mr Prendergast said early detection could help
save sight, so it was vitally important to identify the early signs of macular degeneration. “Don't accept changes to your vision as just part of getting older, be proactive about your eye health and make an appointment with your optometrist today.” Macular degeneration is a chronic condition requiring early detection, and in the case of the 'wet' form, can progress very quickly and require urgent treatment to save sight. Macular Degeneration Foundation Australia chief Julie Heraghty said if you were over 50 and at risk
A simple way to test for macular degeneration is to look at an Amsler grid.
of macular degeneration, in between visits to your optometrist you should monitor your vision with an Amsler grid – a simple tool to test for symptoms of macular degeneration. “When using an Amsler grid, if you see the straight lines appearing wavy or bent, or dark patches or empty spaces in the centre of your vision, make an urgent appointment with your optometrist,” Mr Prendergast said. During Macular Degeneration Awareness Week, OPSM Waurn Ponds will be providing free Amsler grids to patients and visitors. Exclusive Optos Daytona retinal scanning technology at OPSM Waurn Ponds provides an auto-fluorescence assessment of the macula, vitally picking up early macular changes before they are visible in a standard eye test. Optometrists Association Australia chief executive officer Genevieve Quilty urged people to visit their

local optometrist this week and commended Macular Degeneration Australia for their work. “We welcome the use of the #dontbeinthedark hashtag as a way of raising awareness of eye health in general,” she said. Along with having an eye test, Australians over 50 should incorporate the good health practices of diet and lifestyle into their everyday routine. Eating dark, green, leafy vegetables and fresh fruit and fish is important. Quitting smoking is vital, as smoking is a predominant risk factor for macular degeneration. To receive your free Amsler grid, visit OPSM in the Waurn Ponds Shopping Centre or phone the Macular Disease Foundation Australia on 1800 111 709. To book an eye test at OPSM Waurn Ponds with Rowan Prendergast or Carol Hinch, phone 5243 9288 or head to opsm.com.au.

What sort of printer do you need? TALKING COMPUTERS WITH BRAD MCDERMOTT FROM TORQUAY COMPUTERS
p. 5261 2888 m. 0439 070 571 torquaycomputers.com.au
HAS your printer given up the ghost? Do you have to increase the house mortgage every time you buy an ink cartridge? Well it’s time for a new printer. What sort of printer do I need? There are hundreds of different printers to choose from but after careful consideration we can narrow the field down to make the choice as painless as possible. The first question is: “ink printer or laser printer?” Ink cartridges aren’t cheap and are constantly running out, however, they are available everywhere and produce nice colors. Laser printers use toner cartridges. These cartridges are expensive to buy but are great value on a per page costing. Ink printers and laser printers are roughly the same price, however, that’s comparing a black-only laser with a color
inkjet. Another question to ask should be: “how many sheets do I usually print?” All printers should have a specification called the duty cycle. This is usually how many printouts you would expect to do in a month. It can add up quickly. A few sheets here and there a couple of emails etc. and your soon printing 200plus sheets a month. Some other factors to consider are if you need the option of printing from your mobile device like tablets and smart phones. Not all printers have this so it is worth your while to check that it supports this feature for your relevant devices. Also some printers have automatic duplexing which means it prints on both sides of the page which helps cut down waste. As for photo printing, unless you really need it I would save my money and take them to your local chemist to develop. A lot cheaper, no fuss and the

You relish your independence but don’t be a lone Ram! The new moon encourages you to find fresh ways to connect with others in your local community. But don’t believe everything you hear, check the facts thoroughly first. Mighty Mars trines the sun on Saturday so make the most of the energysurge while you can, as you power through projects and tie up loose ends.
Prepare for a week of mystery, where you’re surrounded by innuendo and intrigue. What others say won’t necessarily be what they mean, so read between the lines to uncover what’s really going on. Expect a pleasant and productive weekend, as long as you are realistic about relationships. If you expect too much from a loved one, they might unintentionally let you down.
Don’t jump to hasty conclusions and be a lightweight Libran! It’s time to dig deep with family and friends, as you look beneath the surface and discover what’s really going on. Mighty Mars gives you an extra energy boost on Saturday so stay motivated. Be inspired by birthday great Kylie Minogue “I don’t want to fizzle out. I have to keep going, like a little Shetland pony.”
Wednesday is wonderful for social get-togethers. And Venus visits your sign from May 29-June 23 which increases your luxury-loving side. You’ve been talking about saving for something big like a car, holiday or home deposit for a while now so, with the new moon firing up your finance zone, you need to put your money where your mouth is and actually start saving.
Fabulous financial and career opportunities are around, but you have to work out the perfect time to pounce. With nebulous Neptune scrambling your antennae, avoid making unrealistic promises, passing on unsubstantiated information or jumping to half-baked conclusions. Saturday’s sun/Mars trine increases your desire to exercise and party, plus boost your social media profile.
With the new moon in your intrigue zone, no secret is safe as you uncover clues and pick up on cues that others miss. Be careful what you unearth though, as it may stir up issues from your own less-than-perfect past. Plus peace-maker Venus encourages you to patch up a partnership problem. Clear communication and constant connection are the keys to satisfying relationships.
The new moon activates your sign so expect a busy, bustling and bamboozling kind of week. Lightning flashes of inspiration will strike, as you discover exciting new ways to convey old ideas. Make sure you communicate clearly though, or there’ll be some crazy mix-ups along the way! It’s the best time of the year to refresh your physical appearance and update your wardrobe.
It’s time to roll up your sleeves and get things done. But, with Neptune visiting your relationship zone, the course of true love won’t run smoothly. If you’re attached, you need to be more realistic and flexible about your expectations. Still searching for your soul mate? When you meet potential suitors, look for the real person behind the picture-perfect façade.
The new moon encourages you to reboot a rickety relationship … or start a hot new romance. When it comes to work, optimism is high and there is the potential to do extremely well. But don’t spoil success by being a careless and slap-dash Sagittarian. Take the time to absorb important details along the way – and be realistic about how much you can actually do.

Have you been feeling tired and uninspired? Hold onto your seat Aquarius! Your life is set to expand in exciting ways – especially in areas involving romance, children, friends, hobbies or sport. The new moon stimulates your entertainment sector, so it’s time to clear your throat, polish your maracas, and find yourself a captive audience as you perform and party like a pro.
The new moon indicates magical beginnings so don’t waste precious Pisces time pussyfooting around! Family relationships and home life are the areas where you need to make some overdue changes and adjustments – the sooner the better. But you must be clear and straightforward in your dealings with loved ones, otherwise there’ll be major mix-ups and misunderstandings.

Hey Goats, have you been butting heads with a child, teenager or friend? Use your powerful energy in more subtle and clever ways. Under the influence of diplomatic Venus, sometimes you need to lose a minor battle in order to win the war. Some sensible Capricorn advice may also be just what the doctor ordered, but resist the temptation to be critical and judgmental.

Hawks take flight and rule over Roos BY JAMES TAYLOR DRYSDALE fought off a persistent Anglesea at Alcoa Oval to get back onto the winners’ list in round 7 of the BFL. There was only three points in it at the long break, but the Hawks kicked 10 goals to three after half-time to run out 45-point victors. Lucas Murphy slotted four goals for the Roos. Howard Harmer Oval saw a see-sawing battle between Barwon Heads and Modewarre, the home side turning a six-point deficit at three-quarter time into a five-point win. Chris Martin for the Seagulls and Jesse Douglas were the focal points for their sides, each bagging six goals. Queenscliff made it two from two by stunning
Torquay with seven goals to none in the first quarter on the way to winning by 31 points. Daniel Degois led the way with six goals for the Coutas. Ocean Grove were similarly dominant from the start against Portarlington at home, kicking 11 goals to 1 in the first half and finishing the game 10 goals in front. Grubbers players Alex Bottomley, Brayden Warren and Aaron O’Callaghan each kicked three. It was one-way traffic at Grinter Reserve as Geelong Amateur crushed Newcomb by 229 points. Ammos forwards Rowan McSparron (14 goals) and Tom Balding (10 goals) ensured the visitors remain undefeated this year.

ANGLESEA ended a two game losing streak with a solid 53-38 win over Drysdale. The Roos now sit firmly in the top four just behind Portarlington, whom they take on next week. It’s sure to be match of the round. Goaler Brianna Caldwell was best on court for the Roos, while Drysdale’s Milli Leahy took the three votes for the Hawks. Portarlington easily despatched Ocean Grove with another dominant Candice Bull performance. She added another 28 goals to her season tally. Bull was supported by an agile Jemma Barns, who added 17 goals herself. Defender Candice Parker was notable in a losing side. The Grubbers will meet ladder leaders Geelong Amateur next week. The Ammos took on Newcomb at Grinter Reserve and came away easy 79-10 winners. The Power
unfortunately lost a key defender to injury in the second quarter and were unable to slow the Ammos fast attack on the ball. The Ammos trialled several new combinations with mid-courter Allira Kluver receiving the best on court nod. Modewarre had a convincing win over Barwon Heads, with a final score of 40-28. Defender Temae McCormack was outstanding, creating plenty of opportunities for the Warriors to charge. Modda’s goalers also combined well scoring an even spread each. Modda will be looking to move up the ladder again into the top four when they take on Queenscliff next week. The Coutas stuck it to reigning premier Torquay, but the Tigers, who were trialling new combinations and defensive structures, ran out the game 5033. Anna Masek and Ginger Brown were both impressive. Torquay meet the winless Newcomb.

THE southern blue fin tuna season is well underway and Portland is seeing a huge influx of recreational fishers interested in making this their year to catch their big tuna. All those considering heading down to try their luck, the size limits and catch restrictions on tuna are as follows: Minimum legal size – no minimum Bag/possession limit – 2 retained whole or in carcass form Absolute state-wide possession limit – 2 or < 160 kilograms in any other form. So far, some really nice catches have been taken already with recreational fishers making their bag limits. The financial benefits from recreational fishers’ pursuit of southern blue fin tuna off Portland was made apparent to me on a trip there over the weekend with the number of fishers staying in Portland as well as dining
out in the town. Fortunately, the weather was quite good and many were able to get out and pursue the elusive tuna. Some were fulfilling their dream of catching their first tuna; others were continuing what for many has now become a regular pilgrimage to continue to pursue this prize game fish.
The Anglesea River Support Action Group has been calling on local councillors to hold a public meeting for residents of Anglesea to voice concerns about the issues concerning the Anglesea River. The ongoing acidic events that have affected the river and for the last three summers have hurt the town, as well as changed its recognition as the premier bream fishing nursery on our coast. The ongoing frequency of these acidic events has to be explained to the community as the river has never before experienced this type of regular
ongoing problem. Other issues include: the removal of the stone wall that council agreed to remove as it was an unnatural barrier to the river. A portion of the wall remains under the sand near the river mouth. To address these issues, the council is holding a “listening post” on Saturday between 10am and 1pm. The listening post will be held in the vacant Shop 4 (it used to house the butcher next to the supermarket) in the Anglesea Village.
I would like to remind readers that if you have some real catches you want to send in, please forward them to the email address below, with type of fish, weight, length, location and your name. I am more than happy to place your photos in My Big Catch or online.Email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.

The Kiss of Death
SCFC Under 15 boys tough it out THE under 15 boys Surf Coast FC team has turned its luck around over their past two games. On May 11, the boys showed a courageous win against Surfside. The score was 0-0 at half time, and with a player down due to a broken arm in the first half, the boys soldiered on scoring an inspiring goal to take the win 1-0. The team then took on Barwon Heads last Sunday (May 18), winning 2-1 with just 9 players on the field with goals to Rory Dean and Bryan Innis. Competing strongly from the start, Bryan Innis made several runs down the right wing,
putting pressure on the Barwon Head’s defenders. It was the second half that saw the team attack again and again with some excellent passing creating a number of scoring opportunities, eventually Bryan got his dues putting one in the back of the net. Rory Dean followed shortly after receiving a high pass and slotting the ball into the goals. It was a brave and courageous effort by the entire team with the club looking forward to seeing the boys develop and begin to feed the senior men’s state league team in the years to come.
The senior men posted another draw on the weekend, finishing 1-1 with Brimbank Stallions. After an uncharacteristic start, the men were a little off the pace and one down at half time. The second half saw a much-improved effort; the passing was better and the pressure was top-notch. Patrick Colliar put the score level with a great strike and Barry Schroeter had a fantastic day in goal pulling off some wonderful saves and helping the team get another point. The teams are close to a win, and travel to Altona North this Saturday for round 8.
Happy in victory – the Surf Coast FC Under 15 boys team.

ANGLESEA GOLF CLUB PENNANT continued this week and again the results were mixed. Division 3 had a very exciting day scoring their first win in two seasons – some thought they had won the flag! They scored a 4/1 win against Curlewis at Barwon Valley with Suellen Eskrigge the star of the team winning her match 7/5. Division 6 also had a 4/1 win against East Geelong at Curlewis with most matches finishing on the 15th. Unfortunately Division 4 weren’t so lucky – losing 1/4 against Portarlington at Colac. Our Sunday ladies also had a loss 2/3 against 13th Beach at Clifton Springs. Flag prospects are very slim in all Divisions, but we are currently not holding up any of the ladders. Meanwhile, the travelling golfers ventured down the GOR to Lorne this week for the Miss Lascelles. The team of Ann Stokes, Vida Brenner and Margaret DeVries didn’t win the trophy, but they were close and Vida and Margaret were runners up in their Divisions.

THE SANDS TORQUAY MEN’S Wednesday Men’s 4BBB Stableford: The theme of the week was the summer like conditions that we enjoyed on the coast this weekend, and the fields were a reflection. In the always fun 4-ball stableford we saw a two horse race, with the last minute pairing of John McCoy and Ray Hocking proving to have the right chemistry to score 44 points, winning by one from Roger Lecheni and Joe Sdraulig. NTPs went to Craig Hunter on the 7th and Mr Peter Cox on the 17th. Saturday Men’s Par: It was a big field that got to enjoy near perfect conditions on a lovely Saturday. In the A Grade we had Dean Kitchen edge out Gavan Sheahan in a count back to win at +2. The B Grade was a different story as several players shot the lights out! In a count back we saw Brett King win again with +5 to sneak past runner-up Peter Gaylard. NTPs went to Harvey Munday on the 5th, and Tim Jarman was clearly locked in as he took the honours on the 7th and 17th!
FROM THE MEMBERS’ ROOM Yelland, Gillian Connolly and Kerry Bond scored a Net 62.7 to squeak past Gail Richards, Beverly Dimmick and Dot Tattersall who were runners up with net 63.2. Saturday Ladies Par: In what turned out to be a tight race it was Gail Richards who immerged victorious with a score of -2. Runner-up and winner of the NTP on the 13th was Josephine McMahon who is enjoying a great run of late.
MEDLEY Tuesday Par: In the 9-hole medley off the back we were able to enjoy some near perfect conditions. Cheryl Collings was able to take advantage as she found a way to get the win with a score of square. The runner-up in a count back was Rod Carroll with a -1. Sunday Stableford: The final groups snuck in right before dark, and it didn’t seem to affect them as they were among the top scorers. Leader of the pack was Sharon Stewart with 37 points, winning by 2 over Paul Stewart, who was runner up 35 points.
PORTARLINGTON GOLF CLUB I WAS recently asked to drive the courtesy bus on a Friday evening, as the regular driver was unavailable. What a wonderful service this is, not only for our members, but also for the visitors to our area. I met many lovely people who were coming to our club either for the Friday night raffles, dinner, a flutter on the pokies or TAB, or just a quiet drink at the bar. This is offered every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 4.30pm, and it only takes a phone call if you are in the Portarlington, Indented Head or St Leonards areas. This service includes a regular pick up from Bellarine Bayside Reception (out the front of the footy Club), every Friday and Saturday night at 5.30pm, and of course follows up with the important part – dropping you off at your doorstep when you want to leave.
