Bike Safe calls on COGG to reconsider budget for cycling safety projects
BIKE BUMP Your Home Choose a home loan that’s right for you
BY REBECCA LAUNER BIKE Safe says the City of Greater Geelong’s (COGG) draft budget does nothing for Bellarine Peninsula towns which continue to languish without safe cycling access routes. Bike Safe president Barton van Laar said while he was most appreciative of the Council adopting the Principle Bike Network (PBN) this year, which was a step forward in driving strategic change, he was disappointed this was not reflected in the 2014-15 budget. Mr van Laar said some of the budget inclusions nominated as cycling investments included the implantation of a cycling strategy, a home for cycling, parking improvements, pedestrian lights and rail trail safety improvements. But he said $100,000 to implement a cycling strategy was the same each year, so it was not new and was for general projects, while a home for cycling was a sporting facility and

had nothing to do with the PBN, nor cycling infrastructure for the broader community. Mr van Laar said the bulk of money for Myer and Bellarine streets parking was not for cycling infrastructure and funding for Bellarine Rail Trail pedestrian lights was not new, just carried over from last year’s budget. He also said improvements to Bellarine Rail Trail safety was new money for urgent safety works required, but noted Bike Safe was also contributing $5,000 to the project as it was crucial funding. “The PBN projects nominated by Council for funding totalled about $800,000 but these were rejected.” Mr van Laar said the CBD had attracted significant funds yet there were no safe, connected cycling routes in to or out of the city. “The Bellarine Peninsula towns languish without safe cycling access routes, the northern suburbs are severely lacking in connected routes
into Geelong, as are the west, south and eastern suburbs, while Deakin University campuses lack safe, connected cycling route access, as do many schools in Geelong. “Our existing bike paths are not to standard and need significant investment and new cycle ways identified need to start now. “We are hopeful some components of the existing budget are reconsidered and redirected towards permanent infrastructure that will promote increased cycling, improved safety, and possibly save lives.” Mr van Laar said Geelong’s standard of cycling infrastructure was significantly behind many other progressive cities in Australia. Bike Safe is calling on any cyclists, parents of cyclists, relations or friends of cyclists to have their say on the budget and do so in writing by Tuesday June 10 at 5pm. Submissions can be emailed to email@example.com.

IT’S ALWAYS a good feeling to find yourself pleasantly surprised at some unexpected turn of events, and I was lucky enough to have one of these experiences recently. The occasion was my opening address to the 86th State Conference of the CWA, the Country Women’s Association, held at the Pier Restaurant on Geelong’s Waterfront. Accepting that this was an influential group of women with the ability to contribute strongly in our promotion of Geelong, I looked forward to giving the large number of CWA delegates a briefing on how we were travelling. I have great respect for the CWA’s good works and great energies, but the sheer vibrancy of the delegates at the state conference still caught me a little by surprise. I say this with great respect for all CWA members past and present – but there is no doubt that a large percentage of the general population regard the CWA as a bunch of elderly jumperknitters and doily-makers. Nothing wrong with that of course – my own dear Mum has constructed more than the odd knitted garment over the journey – but there’s a lot more than knitting going on at the CWA these days. Couple this with a membership of around 44,000, spread over almost 2,000 branches Australia-wide, and you have a very powerful body of people. It’s no wonder that the CWA is considered one of the most influential lobby groups in all of Australia. I believe the forward-thinking that today’s CWA exhibits can teach us all a thing or two. While continuing to nurture all those traditional skills that were the original “raison d’etre” for the CWA coming into being, the organisation is reinventing itself as a force for the 21st Century.

Just as we are doing as a City, here in Geelong. The theme of the CWA’s 86th State Conference – “Challenging Perceptions, Changing Lives” – could easily be one of our own drivers in reinventing Geelong. One of the keys to the CWA’s success in taking on the huge challenges of the 21st Century is taking advantage of the knowledge and experience of the entire age spectrum that’s available. There are now thousands of young women participating in CWA activities, mixing with and learning from the organisation’s established membership, while at the same time bringing new ideas into the group. Here in various parts of Geelong, CWA subbranches are flourishing with themed group names such as the “Central Geelong Night Lights”, where young working women get together to discuss world events and many other subjects after they get home from their day jobs. The community service credo still applies – great projects benefiting society in all sorts of ways – but with a thoroughly up-to-date approach. I think that one of the most wonderful things that today’s CWA is accomplishing is the breaking down of the age barriers – the younger members show enormous respect for their elders and constantly draw on their individual and group wisdom. We could all take some pointers from this. While I’ve got your attention, I must mention the National Celtic Festival that’s coming up this long weekend at Portarlington. This is an amazing event and the fact that it happens in our own backyard is our enormous good fortune. People flock to Portarlington from all over Australia to soak up the Celtic glories of music, food and other delights, so I think we locals should all make the effort to get
down there as well. You won’t be sorry. To find out what else I’m up to follow me: Twitter: @Geelong_Mayor Facebook.com/GeelongMayor Darryn Lyons City of Greater Geelong Mayor

Port pier has friends with funding announced BY HAMISH BROOKS THE Ports Minister visited Portarlington yesterday to announce funding for a new pier in the town, but the local state member criticised the funding as being “too little, too late”. Ports Minister David Hodgett was joined by Liberal candidate for Bellarine Ron Nelson and representatives from the City of Greater Geelong and Parks Victoria when he announced $3 million for the redevelopment of the pier. “I am pleased to announce that the Victorian Coalition Government will invest over $3 million to provide the immediate renewal that Portarlington pier needs,” Mr Hodgett said. “The project is ready to build and suitable
contractors are invited to tender to deliver the works by mid-2015.” The infrastructure upgrade will deliver a new 175-metre long 4.5-metre wide pier aligned alongside the existing pier and is designed to have a life of 50 years. The project includes minor works to the existing Portarlington pier to ensure safe access for pedestrians. There will also be an increase to the load limits on the new pier section to improve aquaculture and other marine industry vehicle access. Labor Bellarine MP Lisa Neville, who promised in early April a Labor state government would provide $15 million to stage 1 of the Portarlington Safe Harbour Project, said the pier needed to be fixed but the state government hadn’t gone far enough.
“All this does is fix the issue of the pier. Stage one of the Safe Harbour Project covered the pier, the berths, the ferry facility and also the dredging that needs to be done. “The planning has already been done and signed off on. This (announcement) will delay the Safe Harbour Project even further.” Coryule Ward Councillor Lindsay Ellis welcomed the state government funding. “I look forward to working with Minister Hodgett and his government in the immediate future to further support our important aquaculture industry and provide a safe haven for boating as well as encourage tourism to this beautiful part of Victoria.” Parks Victoria is calling for tenders to be lodged by late June. Construction is scheduled to commence this year and be completed by mid-2015.
Petition pushing for police presence stays put BY REBECCA LAUNER

A PETITON to retain a police presence at stations across the Bellarine will continue to circulate for another couple of weeks. Member for Bellarine Lisa Neville said she would hold off on submitting the petition to parliament to give as many people as possible the opportunity to sign it. The petition was initiated after news a full-time police presence would cease in Portarlington, Drysdale and Queenscliff, and the entire Bellarine Peninsula would be serviced from Ocean Grove.
“We are delaying the submission of the petition because we want to get a lot more signatures from people spread across the region,” Ms Neville said. “For instance, we have the Celtic Festival coming up so we hope more of the community will be able to sign it and be made aware of the issue.” Elizabeth Turner from the Portarlington Community Association said she collected more than 500 signatures alone on Monday morning. Mrs Turner said many people who signed the petition had said “first Ann Nichol
House and now our police station. “Both these appear to have hit our elderly hard and they’re feeling vulnerable,” she said. People can sign the petition at St Leonards IGA; Indented Head General Store; Portarlington’s golf club, neighbourhood house, Stockdale & Leggo, post office, community bank or football club rooms. MEANWHILE, the Bellarine Community Health Board has convened a meeting next Tuesday with Portarlington community representatives to discuss the future of Ann Nichol House.

Celebrating the centenary of the Australian Red Cross BY REBECCA LAUNER THE Borough of Queenscliffe recently hosted a vibrant civic celebration to honour the many Red Cross volunteers within the Borough. The popular High Tea event also celebrated the first 100 years of the Red Cross. The Borough’s celebration, held at Queenscliff Town Hall, was attended by Red Cross volunteers past and present. Mayor Helene Cameron formally thanked the volunteers together with Val Lawrence, the President of the Point Lonsdale/Queenscliffe Red Cross Branch, a previous Borough of
Queenscliffe councillor and past mayor. “Red Cross volunteers give their time, energy and skills freely,” Cr Cameron said. “Unlike most things in life there is choice involved in volunteering. “As a volunteer you have made a decision to help on your own accord, free from pressure to act from others. “Volunteering plays a central role in developing and maintaining a ‘healthy, involved and creative community’ which in turn, adds to our overall sense of wellbeing.” Cr Cameron also highlighted the most recent support the Red Cross had provided
Helper Kimberley with long time resident Gwen Munroe.

to the community. “In our community the Red Cross has assisted with supporting survivors of the Black Saturday bushfires, are always keen contributors to the Annual Red Cross Calling in March and continue to fundraise throughout the year to help those most in need. “The Borough of Queenscliffe is extremely proud of the Red Cross’ legacy of volunteering locally and encourages people to say thanks the next time you see the volunteers out and about in red and white.” If you are interested in volunteering locally visit queenscliffe.vic.gov.au for organisations that have volunteer opportunities.

Dangerous Grove crossing is being upgraded BY JAMES TAYLOR WORK has started to improve safety for pedestrians at a dangerous crossing in Ocean Grove. The $170,000 project will see the installation of a flashing “Give way to Pedestrians” sign at the intersection of The Terrace and Hodgson Street, as well as a raised pedestrian island, fencing and line marking. Yellow crosswalks have already been painted on the road, and all of the improvements are expected to take about eight weeks to complete. Announcing the works last week, Member for
Western Victoria David Koch said the project would have an immediate benefit to the people of Ocean Grove, as well as the thousands of tourists that visit the region each year. “This intersection is one of Ocean Grove’s most dangerous, with three crashes involving pedestrians between 2007 and 2012. “Of these, one tragically resulted in a fatality and another, a serious injury. “These measures will provide people with a safer way to cross the road and ensure drivers give way to all pedestrians.” Funding for the project is part of the state
government’s Safer Roads Infrastructure Program (SRIP). Mr Koch said the state government had committed to spending $1 billion over 10 years on the SRIP program. “An evaluation into the effectiveness of the program by the Monash University Accident Research Centre indicated that the program is producing a reduction of 31 per cent for all casualty crashes.” The yellow crosswalks are the first in a series of improvements to be installed at the intersection of Hodgson Street and The Terrace.

OCEAN Grove Coastcarers are continuing their good work to promote the town as plastic bag free. The group of people passionate about protecting the coast met last week to discuss their existing and future projects. To help promote its plastic bag campaign, the group arranged its first stall at the Ocean Grove Rotary community market and had discussions about an upcoming Pozible fundraising project, a coming film night at the Pipping Hot Chicken Shop on July 17, and its involvement in the recent Mountain to Mouth 2014 Extreme Arts Walk event as it passed

Council decision brings Leopold sub-regional activity centre closer BY REBECCA LAUNER A PROPOSED threefold expansion of Leopold Gateway Plaza shopping centre would ensure a major injection of employment opportunities and a range of new services for the Bellarine. The City of Greater Geelong has adopted Amendment C277, facilitating the expansion of the shopping centre into a sub-regional activity centre and a new drainage reserve. Cr Rod Macdonald said major population growth on the Bellarine Peninsula had presented a strong case for the development of the existing Gateway Plaza into a sub-regional centre. Cr Macdonald said a sub-regional centre was
generally supported by a population of between 40,000 and 80,000 and the Bellarine Peninsula now had a population of about 52,000, but this was expected to increase to about 65,000 by the year 2021. Cr Michelle Heagney said the expansion of floor space from about 7,000 square metres to more than 22,000 square metres would enable a second major supermarket to be established at the complex. Also included in the development would be specialty food shops, a discount department store, bulky goods and trade supplies, along with a range of new specialist non-food retail outlets. Cr Heagney said the proposal was also expected to result in significant social benefits for Leopold
including a “town plaza” at the Melaluka Road entry to the shopping centre with direct pedestrian access across to the adjoining recreation reserve; and shops, cafes and restaurants on Melaluka Road would provide Leopold with a true “main street” shopping strip. There will also be a greater range of retail products and services available to residents of Leopold and the wider Bellarine Peninsula and a number of other non-retail facilities, including an expanded medical centre, gymnasium and a twostorey office complex. A resolution recently adopted by the council recommends that the adopted amendment be submitted to the Planning Minister for approval.

Generous Pam recognised for her community work
Pam Davis, a recipient of the Adrian Mannix Community Service Award, donated her $500 prize money to Drysdale RSL Club.
ONE of Drysdale’s busiest ladies was the worthy recipient of this year’s Adrian Mannix Community Service Award. Pam Davis, who has been described as smiling, organised and generous with her time, recently accepted the honour at an event hosted by The Portarlington/Drysdale Lions Club. Drysdale Rotary Club and Springdale Neighbourhood Housed joined with the Lions club to make this year’s presentation worth $500. Ms Davis is well known and highly regarded for her work with local community groups and organisations, including
Drysdale RSL, the Drysdale Football and Netball Club, Bellarine Health Service (Drysdale Auxiliary) and Meals on Wheels. Perhaps her greatest love is the RSL Club, which she joined in 1967 after she was supported so well while her husband was in Vietnam and Pam’s grandfather was one of the ‘Rats of Tobruk’. Ms Davis has been a member of the Women’s Auxiliary for nearly 40 years, serving as auxiliary president in 1972-73, secretary from 1974 to 1983 and again from 1993 to 2008, and assistant secretary from 1983 to 1993. Ms Davis was instrumental in the
formation of the Drysdale Football and Netball Club and has given many years of service. In her commendation for the Adrian Mannix Award, Ms Davis was described as an outstanding person in the community who worked untiringly for any cause she was involved in. It goes on to say, “She is dependable, she has a lovely quiet personality and does so much good without fuss”. The Adrian E Mannix OAM Community Services Award was established to recognise ‘Real People doing Real Community Work’.

Action Plan to aid reconciliation journey THE City of Greater Geelong has adopted an action plan which articulates the steps towards developing partnerships between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians. Mayor Darryn Lyons said he believed the Karreenga Aboriginal Action Plan was part of the journey to reconciliation. “An important part of this journey is the work that has already been done over the past five years to develop the plan with Wathaurong Aboriginal Co-operative, Wathaurung Aboriginal Corporation, Narana Creations and Aboriginal people in our region,” Cr Lyons said. “‘Karreenga’ is a Wadawurrung word which means ‘to grow’ and this is at the heart of the Action Plan: to build relationships with respect and commitment and to create opportunities. “The Karreenga Aboriginal Action Plan is a framework to help guide and
direct council’s work over the next four years to shape an attitude and approach to improve services, opportunities and understanding.” The Statement of Intent signed at the meeting commits council and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Geelong region to work together in partnership. The Statement of Intent was also signed by representatives from the Wathaurong and Wathaurung communities alongside the mayor, the Aboriginal Affairs portfolio holder Cr Eddy Kontelj and the acting chief executive of the City of Greater Geelong. Cr Kontelj said the event was very meaningful for those involved in the reconciliation journey. “The plan focuses on the genuine relationships and special contribution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to Australia,” he said. “Together we are working to
ensure the same life opportunities as all Australians. “I extend my sincere appreciation and thanks to all the individuals,
Committee seeks volunteers passionate about the coast
communities, organisations and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who contributed to the action plan.”
THE Barwon Coast Committee of Management wants to hear from people who are passionate about the Bellarine Peninsula coast. The state government is looking for volunteers with a mix of skills to join the committee, which is responsible for managing coastal public land on the foreshore adjoining Ocean Grove and Barwon Heads. The Barwon Coast region covers a landscape with high environmental and conservation values. South Barwon MP Andrew Katos said committee members would meet once a month and were appointed for a voluntary term of up to three years. The committee is particularly looking for skills in engineering, legal, financial strategy, environmental management, open space planning and knowledge of the local coastal environment. For more information visit barwoncoast.com.au, expressions of interest close on Friday June 13 at 5pm.

Queenscliff leads new alliance to protect the environment QUEENSCLIFF mayor Helene Cameron has urged local residents to become involved in a grassroots-based initiative aimed at reducing carbon emissions. Partnerships in the new Community Environment Alliance project are open to community groups, businesses and private individuals. Cr Cameron said it is the duty of the current generation to protect and
nurture the environment. “We live in such a beautiful part of the world and it is up to us to preserve the pristine nature of our natural surrounds,” she said. “The good work we do today will reap dividends through the ages; it is something we can do for future generations.” The Borough of Queenscliffe will play
a key role in the day to day operations of the Alliance. It is part of the borough’s commitment that the municipality will be carbon neutral by the year 2020, which is only six years away. Cr Cameron said the council was working towards this deadline by reducing electricity and gas usage, by increasingly moving to solar power – and
in the future wind power – and finally by off-setting remaining emissions. She said the council was calling on the rest of the community to do their bit. “Businesses, groups and individuals can make significant contributions by reducing electricity consumption, switching to green power and installing solar panels,” she said. “People may opt to use their cars

Run Forrest run this weekend Women celebrate BEGINNERS and seasoned campaigners will take on the undulating hills, flowing rivers, dense fern gullies and the cool, fresh air of the Otway Ranges on Sunday. The second Run Forrest Trail Run offers adventure racers an exciting challenge this year, with 21-kilometre and 10-kilometre courses. Staged in the hinterland township of Forrest, nestled in the heart of the Otway Ranges, Run Forrest will showcase the region’s world class trails and breathtaking natural beauty. The 21 kilometre course starts at the Barwon River and follows along the famous Red Carpet trail to Lake Elizabeth. The Red Carpet is a favourite among mountain bikers for its dynamic technical sections, fern covered single track and fast downhill corners. Run Forrest also gives trail runners access to the beautiful fern banks surrounding Lake Elizabeth. The course is tough with tight, cambered turns, fast downhills and is undulating with plenty of flow. The 10-kilometre run starts from the same place but has a turnaround at the top of the Red Carpet. Run Forrest coincides with the 9th Otway Soup Festival, which will also be held on Sunday from 10am at the Forrest Public Hall. The festival features homemade soups, conserves, pickles, relishes, homebrew beers and wines and a wide range of free family entertainment including a farm animal nursery, giant veggie competition, a jumping castle and local crafts and fresh market stalls. For updated course maps and all the latest information on Run Forrest, head to facebook.com/RunForrestTrailRun.

AN EVENT commemorating 100 years of women in local government was held in Geelong yesterday. A group of prominent women who have been active in local and state politics discussed the status of women in government in the past, present and future at “Hearing Women’s Voices”, held at Courthouse Arts. Six years after the Victorian Electoral Act was amended to allow women to stand, the first woman to serve as a Victorian local government councillor was elected in 1920. Today, there are 662 women councillors in the state yet this only represents 34 per cent of local government councillors. The event was presented by Geelong Regional Library Corporation in partnership with Women in Local Democracy, and was chaired by RECKON Community and Organisational Development director Cath Whelan. The keynote address was delivered by Caroline Hogg,
former state government minister and a councillor with the City of Collingwood. Women on the “Hearing Women’s Voices” discussion panel included former South Barwon mayor and councillor Priscilla Pescott and 2012 City of Greater Geelong candidate Sophia Shen. Other panelists included Surf Coast Shire mayor Rose Hodge, Borough of Queenscliffe mayor Helene Cameron, Cr Kylie Fisher from the City of Greater Geelong and former Surf Coast Shire mayor Beth Davidson. This year, the Municipal Association Victoria and the Victorian Local Government Association will take on shared responsibility for implementing the Women’s Charter, which is now endorsed by 65 Victorian local governments. Councils will be encouraged to engage national 50:50 Vision for Gender Equity accreditation and award, which aim to increase the number of women in elected and senior management positions in local government.

Gate Debate on gas draws a crowd
Professor Damien Barrett (right) responds to moderator Jon Faine at The Gate Debate.
BY JAMES TAYLOR ALL sides of the unconventional gas debate aired their views at a packed public forum in Winchelsea last Wednesday. The Gate Debate was hosted by the Winchelsea Business and Tourism Association at the Winchelsea Integrated Neighbourhood Community Hub. The two-hour forum drew a crowd of more than 300 people, featured five speakers and was moderated by ABC radio presenter Jon Faine. Professor Damian Barrett, the CSIROâ€™s deputy director of unconventional gas, noted there were risks involved in the extraction of unconventional gas

â€“ which includes coal seam gas, shale gas and tight gas â€“ but the question should be whether those risks were acceptable. â€œItâ€™s about weighing up the costs and benefits, and making a decision.â€? Professor Samantha Hepburn from Deakin University said the legal issues regarding landholdersâ€™ rights and compensation needed to be much tighter. â€œOf course you can say no (to coal seam gas on your land), but that doesnâ€™t necessarily say that will stop the unauthorised activity going ahead.â€? The Australian Instituteâ€™s Mark Ogge said unconventional gas had a vast footprint on the landscape, and the economic benefits may not be worth it. â€œThe construction boom only lasts a little while... tourism tends to get crowded out.â€?
Lakes Oil executive chairman Robert Annells made an emphatic defence of his companyâ€™s plans to extract tight gas in Victoria. â€œWe donâ€™t have doubts â€“ we are convinced that it is commercially viable and it is safe.â€? Adjunct Associate Professor Marion Carey, a public health physician specialising in environmental health at Monash University, also spoke at the forum. The Winchelsea Business and Tourism Association plan to post the audio of the entire Gate Debate online in the near future. Last Wednesday, the state government also announced it would put a hold on work plan approvals for onshore gas exploration until more information was available. An information day will be held in Torquay on June 19 between 2-8pm at a venue to be confirmed.

Black Rock’s solids project in for award BARWON Water’s biosolids drying project at Black Rock has been named a finalist in the United Nations Association of Australia World Environment Day Awards. The facility, which is operated by Plenary Environment as a public-private partnership, is nominated in the excellence in sustainable water management category. The plant, which is located adjacent to Barwon Water’s Black Rock water reclamation plant, converts biosolids – a by-product of the sewage treatment process – into nutrient-rich farm fertiliser. The Black Rock water reclamation plant is the Geelong region’s largest sewage treatment and water recycling facility and produces almost 140 tonnes of biosolids every day. Before the drying facility, biosolids were transported in closed trucks to large drying bays in Werribee to dry in the sun and wind before being transported for use as fertiliser. Barwon Water managing director Joe Adamski said the corporation was pleased the project had been recognised. “The biosolids drying facility is an important part of Barwon Water’s long-term goal to have a ‘no-waste’ sewerage system where 100 per cent of recycled water and biosolids are committed to sustainable use. “It provides a sustainable, long-term solution to managing biosolids and significantly reduces greenhouse gas generation compared to alternative treatment methods.” Construction of the $77 million drying facility was completed in September, 2012. The plant can treat 60,000 tonnes of biosolids a year from the Black Rock plant and other smaller plants operated by Barwon Water. The award winners will be announced on Friday June 13.

Furthering Facebook’s tourism marketing reach BY HAMISH BROOKS TOURISM Greater Geelong and the Bellarine (TGGB) is putting on a workshop to help local tourism business get the most out of Facebook’s marketing potential. Mel Stewart will be presenting the workshop and said it was essentially about making sure businesses that are investing in having a Facebook presence are getting the most out of it. “Some people who invest in having a presence on Facebook don’t know how to use it effectively as a marketing channel. “It’s about understanding what consumers are using Facebook for, what your objectives are and the science behind it – the figures of
what people are doing. “It’s about creating good content that audiences want to engage with.” Ms Stewart said from TGGB’s perspective it was beneficial to the whole industry to have businesses using online marketing tools effectively. “Part of our reasoning with the workshops is that it helps our region have a stronger online presence.” The workshop is a free professional development session for tourism members of TGGB and is on Thursday June 12 at Geelong City Hall. TGGB non-members can attend for $50. Phone 5244 7120 for more information or to book a place. Tourism Greater Geelong and the Bellarine’s Mel Stewart is presenting a Facebook workshop.

Focus on drugs drives up crime statistics BY JAMES TAYLOR TOTAL crime on the Surf Coast has increased by 7.2 per cent to the end of March, which police have mostly attributed to drug offences and family violence assaults. Victoria Police released its monthly crime statistics late last month, which cover the period from April 2013 to March 2014. They reveal drug offences increased from 84 in the previous 12 months to 117 (a 39 per cent rise) and crime against the person increased from
384 to 431 (a 12.2 per cent rise). Other crime rose from 430 to 573 (a 33.3 per cent rise). Inspector Peter Seel from the Surf Coast Police Service Area (PSA) said a focus on drug offences had resulted in a 39.3 percent increase in the category. “We encourage members of the public to continue to report drug activity especially in relation to the sale of drugs.” He said family violence was a continuing problem and contributed not only to total
assault statistics but other crimes such as criminal damage. “We encourage victims of family violence to report it to police. They will receive support and assistance with referrals to other agencies.” In better news, non-family violence assaults in the PSA have dropped by 19.8 per cent. “Our participation with liquor accords in Torquay and Colac along with a strong focus on enforcement has continued to reduce assaults in and around licensed venues,” Inspector Seel said. However, the state opposition has criticised the
state government over the figures, claiming crime had risen every year since the Coalition government came to power. “Under Denis Napthine and the Liberals, more people are turning to a life of crime, our prisons are overflowing and police aren’t getting the resources they need,” Opposition police spokesman Wade Noonan said. “Denis Napthine has reduced the number of frontline police at local stations at the same time as he has slashed Victoria Police funding by $113 million and cut 500 staff.”
Greens want more bus services in regional Victoria BY JAMES TAYLOR
Bus services in regional areas would increase by 50 per cent under a proposal by the Victorian Greens. Photo: BIDGEE
THE Greens are pushing for the public transport vote ahead of the state election, committing to a 50 per cent increase to V/Line bus services across regional Victoria. Last week, Victorian Greens leader Greg Barber announced his party’s policy, which would increase the budget for buses by about $16 million a year. “V/Line coaches are the only form of public transport for most of Victoria’s small towns, yet many routes run so infrequently that they cannot get people where they need to go when they need to get there,” Mr Barber said. “The lack of services means people rely on cars or just end up stuck with no means of getting to and from major regional
centres, or on to Melbourne. “While the government is focused on building a toll tunnel in the city, the Greens are interested in services that support country Victorians’ everyday needs.” He said increasing bus services would allow students studying in regional TAFE to get to nearby towns without needing to move out of home or buy a car. “The Greens policy will help the tourism industry, enabling visitors to get to places like the Grampians and Great Ocean Road without needing to wait days for connecting buses.” The Greens have called for services on all seven days of the week as a minimum, with frequent connections between major regional centres, and boosting services so that they run to a consistent daily pattern.

Bureau of Meteorology website getting smarter THE Bureau of Meteorology has redesigned its website for smartphone users, making it quicker and easier for people to access Australia’s official weather forecasts using their mobile device. Last week, Parliamentary Secretary for the Environment Simon Birmingham announced the release of a preview of the site for public testing and feedback. “The new mobile-friendly weather website will provide smartphone users with quicker and easier access to current weather information, weather forecasts, warnings and rain radars, helping people make informed decisions and plan their day on the go. “The bureau’s mobile weather website is the only mobile weather service that provides pinpointed weather forecasts using a six kilometre grid, providing users with the most accurate and localised information as they move around.” The mobile weather website is the bureau’s first mobile product offering for smartphone users. Weather apps for Microsoft Windows and Apple iOS platforms are being developed and are scheduled to be released later this year. The Bureau of Meteorology’s website is one of the most popular websites in Australia. It is the number one government site, and also the number one site for weather information. “The bureau has responded to demand for further
engagement with the public through its use of social media channels, such as Facebook,” Senator Birmingham said. “This strong social media presence builds on the popularity of the bureau’s website, which received more than 471 million visits last financial year.” Members of the public are encouraged to test the mobile weather website and provide their feedback on the site. To access the mobile site, head to m.bom.gov.au.

Marathon cash runs in the community THE Apollo Bay and District Health Foundation announced it had raised $37,500 through the Great Ocean Road Marathon to distribute back into the community. A spokesperson for the foundation said the high figure was a result of the fantastic fundraising efforts of the runners, the generosity of major sponsors and other supporters, the enthusiastic volunteering by local groups and the fabulous support of the community. The spokesperson said the money would be divided as follows: • Apollo Bay P-12 College, $16,500 • Apollo Bay Pre-School, $6,500 • Apollo Bay Sailing Club, $3,500 • Wye River CFA, $3,000 • Wye River Surf Lifesaving Club, $3,000 • Kennett River Progress Association, $3,500 • Apollo Bay Community Web Page Inc, $1,500 Upon being advised that Apollo Bay P-12 College would be receiving a grant of $16,500, school
principal Tiffany Holt said receiving such an amount was unique and extraordinary. “A very big thank you to the Apollo Bay and District Health Foundation for making this possible for our school!” Apollo Bay and District Health Foundation chairman Andrew Buchanan said the organisation was delighted with the result. “We hope that not only will it benefit the programs of our local not-for-profit organisations, but also increase the capacity of our community to work together towards shared goals. “Of course, none of this would have been possible without the generosity of our major sponsors, Bendigo Bank and the Apollo Bay News Sheet, and the support of SLM Law and Community Care Chemist. “The health foundation is looking forward to working with you again at next year’s marathon for the benefit of our local communities along the Great Ocean Road.”

FREE seminars to be held in Anglesea are an opportunity for the small business community to receive assistance with online activities. Surf Coast Shire, along with its local tourism and business associations, has been selected as a host for the federal government’s Digital Enterprise Program. The seminars show how to increase productivity and reach customers and clients online, and are designed to help small-to-medium enterprises and not-for-profits (including local cultural organisations) within and surrounding Geelong. Spaces are limited so be quick to book a spot. A seminar on low-cost online tools for small business was held last month, and the next seminar, “Basics of Online Marketing” will be held on June 18. As the range of online communication tools increases, so does the ability to increase a business’s efficiency and productivity. With the growing popularity of mobile devices, there are many opportunities available to promote a business. The “Basics of Online Marketing” seminar covers the best way to develop a digital strategy, how to generate leads online, various customer data storage systems, contact forms, and the ins and outs of email marketing. The July 16 seminar is titled “Engage Customers Through Social Media”, which has been found to be more effective than traditional marketing. Social media has a recognised positive effect on web traffic, email queries and sales. From a business perspective, social media offers low-cost avenues to raise awareness of a business and increase customer engagement. Both classes will be held at the Anglesea CFA station, Great Ocean Road, Anglesea, between 6.30-8.30pm, and include complimentary

Excitement is building at Barwarre Gardens Retirement Village BARWARRE Gardens Retirement Village residents are buzzing with anticipation as their brand new state-of-the-art community centre moves closer to completion. The interior of the purpose-built, architecturally designed centrepiece of the village is currently being fitted out with beautiful contemporary furnishings, fixtures and fittings. The spacious community centre will boast a movie theatre, gym, craft room, sports bar, dining room, lounge, library, consulting room, salon and much, much more. Residents are already planning social events with completion of the community centre due in late August. Watch this space for news of the official opening for the general public to coincide with seniors week on Saturday October 11. Also planned around the community centre is expansive parkland, garden areas and a wetland. These will include picnic areas with electric barbecues, tables and seating under a shady cover. The parkland will be a great place to walk your pet or enjoy a gathering with family and friends. Half of stage two is now sold with the construction of these homes due for completion within the next month. When buying homes in stage two, residents are given a choice of six spacious floor plans of varying size and price, some with double garages. A range of optional extras are available to choose
from so people moving to Barwarre Gardens can make their individual home for their own tastes and living requirements. All homes are designed with ample storage cupboards, fibre optic cabling for technology, water tanks with automatic watering systems, solar assisted hot water, and video intercom to the gates
of the village. With the brand new homes starting at $310,500 they offer wonderful value for money. Secure caravan storage is available for those residents who like to lock up and travel knowing their home is safe and secure while they are away. To find out more or to view a display home
and variety of floor plans on offer, call David on 1300 472 424, visit barwarregardens.com.au or drop in to the Information Centre at Barwarre Gardens, 89 Barwarre Road, Marshall. The information centre is open Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 10am to 3pm or other times by appointment.
Residents of Barwarre Gardens are looking forward to using the new community centre for many social activities.

Urban food hub study gets dollars
BY DEAN WEBSTER
THE state government is investing $60,000 from the $1 billion Regional Growth Fund to investigate the economic benefit and commercial feasibility of an urban food hub for the Geelong region. Member for Western Victoria David Koch said the feasibility study was designed to sustain existing agribusiness and generate new opportunities in emerging food industries. “The first stage of this important project will document the food cycle across the region, including food production, distribution and waste, and the commercial feasibility of operating an urban food hub to assist with the region’s needs to 2030 and beyond.
“The project will identify and map local food producers and processors and opportunities in emerging intensive food agriculture that will support local food industry training and food services across the region.” State member for South Barwon Andrew Katos said the study was a great initiative for creating jobs in the region. “Engaging key stakeholders in urban agriculture production, food processing and distribution will identify job creation opportunities, including the skills required and gaps in the market. “The second stage of the project will identify potential sites and core objectives of a Geelong Urban Food Hub and develop a business plan. Mr Koch said agriculture makes up more than
37 per cent of Geelong’s manufacturing base. The region’s farming sector is worth $2.7 billion a year and employs more than 10,000 people. “The Geelong Urban Food Hub feasibility project complements the national strategy for improved food production efficiencies and quality for domestic and export markets,” Mr Koch said. “It will be led by Professor Hisham Elkadi at Victoria Laboratory of Urban Ecology of Deakin University in association with the City of Greater Geelong, Enterprise Geelong and Innate Ecology.” The Geelong Food Hub Feasibility Study and Project Plan is expected to be complete by September 2014. For more agricultural news, see pages 44-45.
David Koch says the economic benefit and commercial feasibility of an urban food hub for the Geelong region is to be investigated.
Send in your little big idea BY JAMES TAYLOR THE brightest young thinkers in Geelong and the Surf Coast could be jetting off to NASA’s Kennedy Space Centre later this year thanks to littleBIGidea, an initiative aimed at fostering creativity and innovation in students from grade 3 to Year 8. The competition, launched last week by Origin, aims to provide a platform for students to continue Australia’s rich tradition of innovation, which includes the invention and development of solar hot water, the black box flight recorder, the fridge and the bionic ear. Judges in littleBIGidea include James O’Loghlin, former host of the ABC’s The New Inventors; Christie Burnett, editor of popular parenting blog Childhood101.com; and Bernard Caleo, presenter of Origin “Energy for Schools” shows. “With new technologies being developed every day, it’s a really exciting time to be encouraging the next generation of Australians to unearth the nation’s
James O’Loghlin (centre) with a group of inventive students.
next littleBIGidea, no matter how big or small,” Mr O’Loghlin said. The top 12 ideas will be selected based on an exceptional demonstration of originality, creativity, practicality, imagination and innovation. These finalists will be invited to attend the littleBIGidea forum in Sydney in October to present their idea to the judging panel. Three overall winners will win a trip to Florida in the USA to visit innovative hotspots such as the NASA Kennedy Space Centre and Epcot Theme Park at Walt Disney World. Other prizes include $1,000 in education grants for each of the nine runners-up, and $4,000 to spend on energy upgrades for the 12 finalist student’s schools. Origin national community partnerships manager Amy Stockfeld said the company’s 2013 Power Pioneers schools competition received entries which were so impressive that this year’s competition was broadened to include ideas of any kind. Entries close on September 5. For more informaiton and to enter, head to littlebigidea.com.au.

Alternative air quality points Dear Editor, Thank you to Scott from Torquay for presenting a number of alternative points in the debate about air quality in Anglesea (“Why shut it down?”, Letters, May 22). Many local people are saying, “The protesters are not speaking for me”. The power station has been here for over 40 years. How many of the agitators have moved here after its establishment? The school’s proximity to the mine is not a strong point for closure of the power station as the school has recently relocated closer to the site. If our air is so poisoned, why do we have so many active 80- and 90-year-olds in our midst? Also there is no obvious evidence of a higher than average rate of respiratory illness or cancer among Anglesea residents. Furthermore, our town is never under a cloud of pollution that blights the countryside, such as can be seen in Gippsland mining areas. It is interesting to note that two countries, Japan and Germany, that have been leaders in green/ renewable energy are now returning to coal as a reliable and cheaper source of power.

Support for closure statistically valid
and power station is statistically valid. This figure has been arrived at by the door-to-door surveying of more than 200 people in Anglesea which, in a population of just fewer than 2,500, allows for statistical accuracy and far exceeds the percentages used by common polls such as A.C. Neilson, Galaxy and Roy Morgan. Surf Coast Air Action would be very happy to see the results of Mr Kelton’s own poll using the same methodology that called for this old and dirty power station to remain open. As for his commonly expressed furphy about smoke from wood heaters causing more pollution than the power station, I refer him to the recently published National Pollution Inventory for Alcoa’s Anglesea power station. The NPI statistics show the facility emits a cocktail of pollutants including arsenic, boron, carbon monoxide, hydrochloric acid, lead, oxides of nitrogen, volatile organic compounds and 39 million kilograms of sulphur dioxide, a chemical to which the World Health Organisation says there is no safe level of exposure. Wood heaters do emit respirable particles, the worst being carbon monoxide – but based on emission figures for capital cities, every one of Anglesea’s 2,500 residents would need to be burning wood heaters all year round to come close to the amount of pollutants emitted by a coal fired power station generating 150 megawatts of power. The difference is that wood smoke is often much more visible than the emissions from Alcoa’s smoke stack; the lesson being, just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there. Lynne Batson Anglesea
Any word on Ann Nichol?
As one of the organisers of the survey referred to by Kevin Kelton (“A vote to keep it open”, Letters, May 29) I can assure him that the figure of 82 per cent support for closure of the Anglesea coal mine
Dear Editor, Any word from Bellarine Community Health or the state government on the proposed sale of Ann
Nichol House, Portarlington? The Bellarine community is opposed to the sale of this community aged care asset and is still waiting for an announcement from this public agency or the state government on their proposed action. I have sent a letter to both on this issue, but have had no response from either. Why the silence? Can they please release a statement advising that Ann Nichol house is not for sale and is not to be sold. Easy. Kira Fitzpatrick Portarlington
Animals under the big top Dear Editor, I represent Eroni’s Circus. I wish to appeal to Surf Coast Shire regarding the recent ban (“Elephant incident leads to animal circus ban”, Surf Coast Times, May 29) against exotic animal circuses from performing within the Surf Coast Shire. The ban against animal circuses in Surf Coast Shire is a ban based on the misinformed opinions of an extreme minority and what we believe to be deep-seated prejudice against our circus community. This ban is apparently to prohibit the use of exotic species of circus animal performing within the shire, however, even domestic animal circuses such as our own have also been unable to perform in the region. Why is it that on the many, many occasions that we have applied to perform within the region, we have been denied with the response that council has no sites available? We believe that there are a number of sites available. Over the summer holiday period, our Big Top is hired by various festivals including the Falls Festival and Queenscliffe Music Festival to name a few. The Big Top is transported to these events in a very eye catching, sign written circus trailer with

obvious imagery of circus horses. This trailer also includes our circus hotline. We receive many phone calls over this period from local ratepayers asking when our circus will be coming to Torquay. Families want to see our circus horses and our traditional style of show. When we tell them that council has no sites available, they laugh and mention a number of sites in the shire which circuses have performed on in the past. If council is serious about representing their ratepayers, we ask them to use our circus as a case study. Allow us to perform at Torquay. We are extremely confident in the high level of care offered to our animals and the professionalism of our business. Perhaps people would get a surprise at the overall conduct of modern circuses such as ours. We supply educational material to circus patrons regarding our animal welfare practises; we are very particular about the modern, attractive appearance of our circus, overall cleanliness, large tidy animal enclosures, uniformed staff and high standard of performances. We ask council to survey our animal care, and their ratepayers response to our circus in the shire. Let the public decide how they perceive a wellrun circus. Unfortunately, we find that emotional hysteria and hypocrisy often overrides any fair, objective assessment of performing circus animals. Many of the people who campaign strongly against circuses have often never even seen a recent Australian circus. They base their opinions off dated/overseas incidents, hearsay, propaganda and often complete speculative ignorance. Scientifically there is actually very strong evidence supporting the high animal welfare standards offered by modern day circuses.

on the scorecards). And why can’t there be shelters on both sides of the ground as has been provided for the hockey pitch? The football ground has already gained a very poor reputation among players, coaches and visiting teams for being too exposed to the wind, making “good football” much more difficult, especially for the smaller juniors where we should be teaching them the skills of the game, and for lacking visitors’ facilities. But, with the onset of night games, those problems have been exacerbated and now one of the worst in the district competitions, with players simply not wanting to play there. Surely Torquay can do much better than that!
Local Red Cross thanks Dear Editor, We would like to thank your readers for the marvellous support we were given with our Red Cross Calling Appeal in March. Anglesea/Aireys Inlet put on a concert which was a huge success and Torquay Rotary did some very successful intersection collecting. Add to this, door knocking and tin shaking and the areas raised over $17,000. Red Cross has been running in Australia for 100 years this year and so we continue to try and fulfil our logo of “People Helping People”. Much of our work is dealing with disasters but our volunteers are busy on a day to day basis addressing the needs of loneliness and filling needs such as Breakfast Clubs in some of the primary schools. What a great community spirit exists when we get such a positive response to our appeal.

Onshore natural gas engagement gets under way
A dim view of Torquay North sport Dear Editor, I just wonder how often any local councillor has attended a football match played under lights at the Torquay North football ground. Many games are now being scheduled for night games at that ground and it is a firm fixture for future games. This ground hosts teams from many other communities and it brings both players and their parents and supporters from outside Torquay. Sadly, being such a new ground, what should be an icon for the region is an absolute embarrassment. The so-called lights are really a joke. Not only is the lighting for the actual game too inadequate (e.g. the goal umpires can barely read to record

I write to welcome the launch of the Victorian government’s community consultation on onshore natural gas – which includes tight, shale and coal seam gas. I know there is some uncertainty about the development of an industry here in the Geelong region, and I encourage anyone who is interested to take this opportunity to access the available information and contribute their views and ideas. Protecting regional and rural Victoria’s food and fibre production, water aquifers and liveability is fundamental to the government’s potential approach to onshore natural gas. Unlike Labor, who approved 23 hydraulic fracturing or fracking operations without any community consultation, we are engaging with

the community and want to gain a comprehensive understanding of the issues before making decisions on this important matter. Labor showed once again it does not value country electorates nor care what country voters think. No fracking has occurred under the Coalition government and we are consulting widely on the issue: banning BTEX fracking chemicals, putting a moratorium on fracking itself and carrying out scientific studies of the potential impacts of an onshore natural gas industry on Victoria’s surface water and groundwater. A dedicated natural gas community information website has been set up to inform the consultation process at naturalgasinfo.vic.gov.au. The website will feature details of upcoming meetings as well as information about onshore natural gas, landholders’ rights, the Victorian regulatory system and scientific water studies.

Speak against elder abuse
is so important. It is a time to shine a light on elder abuse – a hidden problem in our society that more people need to become aware of. The first step is raising awareness and talking about elder abuse and how people can get help. World Elder Abuse Awareness Day is a day where we can all say “no” to elder abuse, and let senior Victorians know they have the right to live without fear. I want to encourage anyone who may be experiencing elder abuse to call Senior Rights Victoria on 1300 368 821. Advice is free and confidential. Events to help raise awareness of elder abuse are taking place across the state including the Victorian World Elder Abuse Awareness Day Forum – Human rights are ageless – on Monday June 16. Wear a purple ribbon to show your support and together we can strive for a society where seniors are empowered to speak up against abuse and get the help they need. Visit weaad.org.au to find out more about World Elder Abuse Awareness Day. If you would like to find out more about my work as Commissioner visit seniorsonline.vic.gov.au. Gerard Mansour Commissioner for Senior Victorians
Dear Editor, As Commissioner for Senior Victorians, I am urging Victorians to speak up against elder abuse for World Elder Abuse Awareness Day on June 15. All seniors should be able to live healthy, active and independent lives as part of their local communities. To do that, our seniors need to feel safe, to be free from discrimination and harm and to have their rights respected. We know that some Victorian seniors experience neglect, others abuse. The most common abuse is financial, though we know seniors also experience psychological, social, sexual or physical abuse – sometimes at the hands of loved ones. Figures show that around five per cent of older people may experience abuse – and that could be higher because people are afraid to speak up. That is why World Elder Abuse Awareness Day
Heads up on Heads Up Dear Editor, I am writing to let your readers know about Heads Up, a new campaign beyondblue has launched to promote mentally healthy workplaces. We want business owners and leaders to place just as much importance on people’s mental health as they do on their physical health and safety. And we have a new website to help businesses take action to improve mental health in their workplace – headsup.org.au. In a new instinct and reason survey of more than 500 business owners and managers, around
half (45 per cent) agreed that workplace mental health is a problem, but not a major cost to the business and almost as many (43 per cent) agreed that businesses have more important issues to think about. I believe they may reconsider their position if they knew that a PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC) report last week found that through absenteeism, decreased productivity and compensation claims, mental health in the workplace costs the Australian economy $10.9 billion a year. On the other hand, the good news is the PWC report also found that for every dollar spent on improving mental health in the workplace, a business reaps an average return of $2.30. In several industries, however, it can be as high as $5.70. So it follows that taking action on mental health problems (such as depression and anxiety) in the workplace is not only the right thing to do, but it makes good business sense. I am greatly encouraged that more than seven out of 10 (74 per cent) leaders surveyed recognised that mental health problems resulted in absence and lost productivity, nine out of 10 (89 per cent) agreed businesses needed support to tackle mental health issues in the workplace and almost as many (84 per cent) agreed that a campaign was needed to raise awareness in the business community. So I invite business leaders and bosses to check out our headsup.org.au website to find out what they can do to make their workplaces mentalhealth friendly. If you’re an employee, show this letter to your boss or check out the Heads Up website yourself. Mentally healthy workplaces are those that people look forward to attending, are sensitive to individuals’ needs, and where employees and managers are supportive of each other. Good businesses need good leaders, so I hope everyone will acknowledge that there is good evidence to show taking action to make your workplace mentally healthy makes good business sense.
Red Cross reminder before financial year end
Georgie Harman Chief executive officer beyondblue
Toni Aslett Executive Director Victoria Australian Red Cross
Dear Editor, As we approach the end of the financial year, Red Cross would like to remind everyone that June is a great opportunity to help those doing it tough at the moment, and also get a tax deduction. The number of people who need our help continues to grow each year, and Red Cross is finding it more and more difficult to attract the support we need to do our vital work. The growing desire for older people to stay at home puts more pressure on charities like Red Cross to provide home visits and daily phone calls. We also have a range of companionship programs where our volunteers visit isolated, older people to help them stay in touch with their local communities. We also help people who are homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless, those with mental health issues, and disadvantaged families who want a better future for their children. Across the Asia Pacific region we are working with our near neighbours to provide clean drinking water and better sanitation, and help rebuild lives after major disasters such as Typhoon Haiyan. All of our work relies heavily on the generosity of people like you; people who donate to Red Cross. Now, more than ever I’m asking you to dig deep before June 30 to make sure Red Cross will always be there for our friends and neighbours when they’re doing it tough. To make a tax deductible donation by June 30, call 1800 811 700, go online or use your smartphone to go to our website at redcross.org.au, or text “Help” to 0448 DONATE (366 283).

Fitzgibbons reigns in Cloudbreak AN EPIC finals day at the Fiji Women's Pro saw Sally Fitzgibbons claim victory after a day of pumping surf at Cloudbreak. She went head-to-head with five-time ASP Women’s World Champion Stephanie Gilmore in their first match-up of the 2014 WCT season. In low scoring final, Fitzgibbons narrowly defeated Gilmore 9 points to 8.73. Gilmore only needed a 3 to regain the lead, but the ocean went quiet for the remaining minutes of the heat, giving Fitzgibbons a well-deserved victory. She will retain her ASP World No. 2 position following the win, which came on the heels of her victory in Rio de Janeiro. The pair wasted little time getting to their feet in the final, catching small scores to kick off the heat .With less than 15 minutes on the clock, Gilmore found a crucial wave for a narrow lead over Fitzgibbons. The World No. 2 fought back in need of only a 2.73, and found a wave, overtaking the lead with a 3.00. Her modest scores proved enough for the victory, marking back-to-back wins on the 2014 ASP Women's WCT. She faced fellow Australians Tyler Wright and Laura Enever, and Hawaiian Malia Manuel on route to the final. “I guess wins come in waves for me! To win in beachbreaks in Rio last week and then in reefbreaks in Fiji this week is a huge boost to my confidence,” Fitzgibbons said. “I knew that I've been surfing well this year and I just needed things to fall my way before the wins started coming. Carissa (Moore) had a huge start to this season, but the year's a long way from being finished. I’m looking forward to the US Open.” Gilmore was in excellent form through the duration of the competition, topping South African Bianca Buitendag and fellow Australian Dimity Stoyle on her way to the final, but failed to find the score needed to surpass Fitzgibbons for the win. The second place finish sees her move up in the rankings to be ASP World No. 3. “The surf certainly got tricky there at the end of the

day,” Gilmore said. “There had been good waves coming in all day, but it's a challenging line-up and easy to find yourself out of place. “It was a pretty slow final and I fell on a couple that I could have capitalised on. All in all though, it's been a great day, the girls all charged and it's been a great return to Fiji for the ASP Top 17. On to the next one.”
Dimity Stoyle, the highest-ranked rookie on tour, caused the upset of the event after taking down the World No. 1 and reigning ASP Women's World Champion Carissa Moore in the quarterfinals. She went on to face event runner-up Gilmore in the semi-finals but failed to find the excellent score need to best the five-time champion. “This has been the best event of my life,” she said. “The waves have pumped at Cloudbreak and then
Restaurants and then back at Cloudbreak today and the girls have taken it head on. I would have liked to have put up some bigger scores today, but to take down Carissa and come up against my hero Steph in the semi-finals in pumping Cloudbreak is like a dream. Really stoked to be here.” The men’s Fiji Pro competition window opened on Sunday, with the competition scheduled for completion on June 13.

Taekwondo club racks up elite results LOCAL martial arts club Elite Taekwondo struck gold at last month’s Victorian Taekwondo Open, held at the State Hockey and Netball Centre in Melbourne.

Open up the Chatterbox on cybersafety BY JAMES TAYLOR
The Chatterbox series, presented by the Australian Communications and Media Authority, presents a fresh, new and jargon-free perspective on using the internet safely.
THE latest episode of the Australian Communications and Media Authority’s (ACMA) “Chatterbox” series has gone live. The fourth episode in the Cybersmart series, “The Internet’s Underbelly”, focuses on accessing age-inappropriate content and unwanted contact and became publically available on May 26. The digital world has made pornography accessible, anonymous and affordable for all. For some children, exposure to online pornography occurs before any formal education on the topic, and the portrayals fail to demonstrate the elements of a healthy sexual relationship, like love and respect. The episode asks: “How are you talking to your kids about the darker side of the internet?”
Chatterbox provides parents a fresh, new and jargon-free perspective on cybersafety issues. Previous episodes are “Trolling, Tagging and Bagging”, which explores the potential for harm that can sometimes occur when social media is misused; “Tots, Teens and InBetweens”, which ponders where technology fits with the trials and tribulation of growing up; and “Selfies and Someone-Elsies”, which suggests tips on how to manage some of the most common parenting challenges in the online world. The conversations can be accessed at home, on a mobile device or on the go. Parents are also encouraged to submit questions and share stories on the Cybersmart “The Internet’s Underbelly” Facebook page. For more information on the Chatterbox series, head to cybersmart.gov.au.

Surf Coast sports events get promotional support BY JAMES TAYLOR TWO sporting events on the Surf Coast will share in $7,000 worth of state government funding to help promote them outside of the region. Polwarth MP Terry Mulder announced the Lorne Adventure Fest and the Surf Coast Century would each receive $3,500 in latest round of Tourism Victoria’s Country Victoria Events Program last week. The Lorne Adventure Fest is a multi-sport event that will celebrate its 10th year in 2014. The event is run over a weekend with three separate elements, and will be held this year on December 6-7. The long-course and short course races attract competitors who compete as individuals or teams
with swim, trail run, kayak and mountain bike legs. There is also a race targeted at children under the age of 13. The Surf Coast Century marathon is a 100 kilometre ultra marathon that starts and finishes on the foreshore in Anglesea. Competitors can compete as individuals or in teams following trails and beach runs through and along the Surf Coast. Mr Mulder said the events would have a significant impact on the local economy by attracting visitors from across Victoria to the local region. “The Great Ocean Road region features one of Australia’s, if not the world’s most spectacular scenic drives.” The next round of Country Victoria Events Program grants closes on October 1.

PUPILS at Lorne-Aireys Inlet P-12 College have reached for the sky with the help of local rocketry expert John Dangerfield. The pupils from grades 4, 5 and 6 at the Aireys Inlet campus designed, constructed and decorated the rockets in their science and art sessions, with assistance from teachers and parents, and launched them at Sandy Gully Beach last month. “The grade 4s and 5s made small thin rockets whilst the grade 6 students constructed wider rockets,” grade 6 pupils Paddy and Finn said. “When they were launched at Gully Beach, the
wider rockets didn't go very high but the smaller rockets were spectacular and spiralled into the clouds. “Some were lost never to be found, although we did have a rescue team that swam into the ocean who collected any debris.” Science and arts are key curriculum areas at Lorne Aireys P-12 College, and the rocketry program has proven to be extremely successful in enhancing students’ knowledge of the design and engineering skills required to literally make their ideas into reality and take flight.

Colac retailer Kellie Searle believes the window display at Lilly Pilly has been a vital ingredient in capturing the attention of potential customers on Murray Street.
Learn visual tricks at retail workshop BY JAMES TAYLOR RETAILERS from across the region have been invited by the Colac Otway Shire to attend industry training on visual merchandising and product placement. The ‘Creating Competitive Visual Merchandising for the Retail Environment’ workshop, to be held later this month, will train retailers and shop owners in increasing innovation and diversifying their visual displays. Colac Otway Shire business development officer Michael Swanson said it was a new era in retail. “Shop owners have to work harder to compete with online sales and greater choice in shopping outlets. “There is more pressure than ever to compete. “The visual connection of a shop front with the customer is one way store-holders can gain greater attention and this can lead to a better sales performance.” The workshop is part of the Streetlife Retailer Skills Workshop series and is free of cost.
“What it looks at is how you can engage the customer visually, how you can get your brand noticed with visual theatre; and how to engineer promotions to drive interest and commercial outcomes,” Mr Swanson said. Colac retailer Kellie Searle said visual merchandising was vital in drawing potential customers into her shop. “A good window display captures people’s attention and draws them into the shop. “It’s certainly something I put a lot of pressure on myself to keep at a high standard; and it gets proven results.” The ‘Creating Competitive Visual Merchandising for the Retail Environment’ workshop will be held at the Colac Otways Performing Arts and Cultural Centre (COPACC), Rae Street, Colac, on June 18 from 5.45-7.30pm. RSVP by June 16 to Michael Swanson by phoning 5232 9555 or emailing michael.swanson@ colacotway.vic.gov.au.

Sublime owner Annie Hancock with her daughter, Hannah.
Sublime in Armstrong Creek WARRALILY residents now have the convenience of daily essentials, including espresso coffee, within walking distance from home. The Sublime Cafe is the brainchild of Annie and Damien Hancock who seized the opportunity to service the Warralily community with a purpose-built mobile cafe. Warralily community development officer Kylie Pollock said that despite the nearest shops being only a short drive away, the team was thrilled that the Sublime Cafe would provide the ease of a local neighbourhood store until planned permanent facilities were completed. “The Sublime Cafe helps us cater to the needs of residents and encourages people out of their cars and onto the footpaths,” Ms Pollock said. “It’s another step towards our vision of creating a safe, vibrant and healthy community.” The Warralily master plan promotes a reduced reliance on cars with 30 kilometres of walking and cycling paths to connect homes to future shops, schools, sporting facilities and community services. Sublime owner Annie Hancock said the mobile
cafe was the start of a long-term plan that includes being a permanent part of this remarkable new community. “We saw an opportunity at Warralily and decided that life is too short - hence the birth of Sublime. “My hospitality career (which started with training at The Gordon) has taken me all over Australia, to large hotels, small intimate dining restaurants and catering venues, and it was the personal service of small restaurants that I loved; knowing the locals, how they have their coffee and what their kids have been up to.” As well as offering staples such as milk, bread and papers daily, Sublime has coffee, cold drinks, sandwiches, wraps and rolls, gourmet pies and sausage rolls and a range of homemade sweets. Over the warmer months, gourmet ice cream will be offered and a mobile wood fired oven is available. The Sublime Cafe is outside the W Lounge at the Warralily sales office at 844 Barwon Heads Road, Armstrong Creek, and is open from 7am3pm Monday to Friday and 8am-3pm Saturday and Sunday.

New Waurn Ponds stage exceeding all expectations The recently opened new stage of the Waurn Ponds shopping centre has enjoyed a stellar first two weeks, according to its biggest retailers.
Victorian Premier Denis Napthine speaks at the opening of the Coles superstore.
REPRESENTATIVES from Kmart and a Coles said thousands of people had been through the stores. Coles regional manager Jackie Dalrymple said the company’s superstore had outperformed every other Coles supermarket in Australia in some areas. “The response to our new Waurn Ponds superstore has been fantastic, with tens of thousands of shoppers visiting the supermarket since it opened. “In the first week of opening, customers actually bought more MIX clothing at Waurn Ponds than any other Coles supermarket in Australia. “The new in-store bakery, meat department with on-site butchers,
fresh produce area and large deli have also proven really popular, with the response from shoppers exceeding all expectations.” Kmart Waurn Ponds store manager Chris Mason was equally pleased with the store’s progress within two weeks of being open. “Kmart Waurn Ponds is tracking very well since opening last Wednesday (May 21),” he said. “A lot of people from the community have already come to explore our product ranges and see the new store. “Customers are loving our offering and we’re seeing great interest in our living and homewares areas with our window display showcasing our
latest living products at really affordable prices. Our apparel range is proving very popular with young shoppers commenting on our on-trend pieces. “Our toys are also drawing customers to the store with our low-priced Kmart-branded products and also popular brands such as Lego, Mattel, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. “On opening day we were lucky enough to have mayor Darren Lyons and Premier Denis Napthine conduct a tour of the store, and they were really impressed with the store layout and the products we have available, as were the many customers who visited us on opening day.”

New basin plugs holes in Apollo Bay’s water supply RESIDENTS of the Apollo Bay region can now enjoy a secure water supply and an end to summer water restrictions with the completion of a new $22 million water storage basin. Polwarth MP Terry Mulder toured the new 250 million litre storage basin last week and said it was now ready to be filled by winter rains. “This new storage basin and transfer system will secure the water supply of Apollo Bay, Marengo and Skenes Creek until 2055,” he said. “The Apollo Bay region is a magnificent spot along the Great Ocean Road. It’s home to thousands of residents and is a popular spot for tourists. With significant population growth predicted over the coming years, the need for a secure water supply was critical. “This new storage basin is great news for the Apollo Bay community, with the increased storage capacity meaning residents will have a reliable supply year-round. “Importantly, it also means the end of summer water restrictions, which had been necessary to cope with the influx of thousands of holidaymakers.” As well as constructing a new storage basin, Barwon Water has installed a new pump station to harvest water from the Barham River, and another pump station and new pipeline to transfer supplies to the treatment plant at Marengo. The Apollo Bay water treatment plant is also being upgraded as part of the water storage project, with new technology introduced to boost water quality and an increase to treatment capacity. Mr Mulder said the need for additional drinking
water capacity was identified in Barwon Water’s Water Resources Development Plan. More than 26 augmentation options were considered during
investigations spanning a number of years. A community open day at the storage basin will be held later this year.

Funding to help weed out coastal infestation AN APOLLO Bay local community group has received funding to tackle a weed infestation in Kennett River in the latest round of state government Coastcare grants. Polwarth MP Terry Mulder announced funding of $5,500 for the Southern Otway Landcare Network (SOLN). “This funding will enable SOLN to co-ordinate their Kennett River Pittosporum project, which will address Pittosporum spread around the coastal settlement of Kennett River,” he said. “A two-hectare infestation along the coastal strip will form the focus of community activities and revegetation with education on environmental weeds, which will be done through local networks.” Mr Mulder said that residents will be offered local plants in exchange for removal of Pittosporum and other weeds that will be removed from private property. “I also understand that four community events have been planned. It is great to see a number of environmental groups and community organisations in Polwarth receiving grants to fund environmental projects close to home. “I congratulate these active community groups on their initiative and commitment to our environment and I encourage others in the electorate to access the range of grants programs offered by the Coalition Government in the future.” Minister for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith said with more than $200,000 in this round of funding available, the grants would provide support and practical action at a local level. “Our environment will continue to benefit from the Coalition Government’s Coastcare program, which provides local community groups with the support they need to deliver environmental benefits at a local level.” For more information on the grants, head to depi.vic.gov.au/Coastcare.

Don’t risk crop failure – plan for surveillance BY DEAN WEBSTER AS PLANTING for the year’s winter crop reaches a crescendo, it’s timely to remind grain farmers to prepare a surveillance plan that will allow for regular and thorough surveillance of their growing crops, according to a Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) grains industry biosecurity officer. “Surveillance during the life of a crop will provide the best possible chance
of identifying a new pest early after symptoms appear,” Jim Moran said. “This will significantly increase the potential to eradicate the pest and minimise damage and loss of income.” Whether it is a new pest to Australia, or just a new pest on your farm, there can be multiple impacts on productivity from the establishment of a pest. Once established, pests can increase your cost of production through chemical applications, decrease yields through
plant damage, and may have an impact on the price and marketability of your crop. Any surveillance must be supported by thorough knowledge of the common pests of the crops you are growing. Whether it’s you or your agronomist who conducts the surveillance, knowing what is normal to find in your crop will identify through elimination any unusual pest which has arrived. There are numerous sources of excellent information on common and
exotic grain pests and diseases found in booklets and the internet that assist and support any surveillance activity. For example, the Grains Research and Development Corporation has excellent resources, as do chemical companies and the member-based farmer advisory groups. In addition, there is the DEPI Crop Diseases App for iPhones available through DEPI in Horsham. A sample of anything unusual should
be sent to DEPI in Horsham through the CROPSAFE program for free analysis by experts. The industry needs to rule out the presence of a new, exotic pest which, if found, would initiate a robust, multiagency response to try to eradicate it. Phone Jim Moran at DEPI on 5430 4479 for a free copy of the Grains Industry Farm Biosecurity Manual, which contains pictures of high-priority exotic pests of grain crops.

Ballarat cattle market report Mondayâ€™s Ballarat yarding of 386 cattle softened 146 head on the previous sale. BY DEAN WEBSTER
Weaner calves from Bellbrae bound for the saleyards this week.
REDUCED supply and buyer competition resulted in lower prices with a very mixed quality selection of 132 steers, 159 heifers, 78 cows and 17 bulls. There was one additional restocker buyer present and that helped to lift prices of some restocking categories at times. Most cattle sold 5 to 15 cent per kilogram cheaper with no real buying trend apparent. Restockers and processors mainly paid between 140 cents and 175 cents for the bulk of their C2 and C3 yearlings, while a handful of heifer vealers started at 165 cents per kilogram. A few better suited yearlings to either processors or feed were 10 cents cheaper to nearly unchanged in prices and they made from 175 to 193 cents per kilogram. The D2 yearlings mostly sold from 115 to 160 cents, to be 10 to 15 cents per kilogram lower to all buyers. The plain to average quality C3 and C4 grown steers made from 162 to 168 cents, while the better quality sold from 176 to 183 cents per kilogram. Grown heifers of three to five score sold between 133 and 150 cents, with a top sale at 155 cents per kilogram. Very heavy heifers were discounted and the mixed selection of cows saw a
run of the two to four scores drop to an average of 270 cents per kilogram cwt. The D1 grades eased 5 cents ranging between 100 to 118 cents per kilogram. Most D2 cows were between 115 cents and 128 cents to be 5 to 10 cents cheaper, but the three to five score cows were 5 to 15 cents lower at 120 to 145 cents per kilogram. The B2 heavy weights bulls lifted 7 cents to sell from 140 to 148 cents. Last Thursdayâ€™s Colac yarding of 658 cattle was 83 head up on the previous sale. More cattle were yarded. However, most of the increase was in the form of poor to plain quality young cattle. The regular processor and restocker orders were present, but not all buyers operated fully, which caused a cheaper market. The few C2 and C3 grades of yearling cattle mainly sold 10 cents cheaper at 160 to 180 cents per kilogram to restockers, with processors finding it hard to secure suitable numbers in the average quality offering of 235 head. The better quality for processors came from the moderate number of C2 and C3 heifer vealers, which sold at firm to easier prices between 190 and 204 cents with the only pen of vealer steers at 214 cents per kilogram.

Local groups share in historical grants BY JAMES TAYLOR THE Torquay and District Historical Society and volunteers at Barwon Park are among the 63 Victorian community groups shining a light on Victoriaâ€™s history with support from the latest round of the state governmentâ€™s Local History Grants Program.

of an e-book to record the history of community activism to save St Kildaâ€™s iconic Espy Hotel; the reinstating of a collection of historic memorabilia from the Marysville Cricket Club which was lost during the 2009 bushfires; and an historical trail through Woodvale which will educate visitors about its fascinating past. Announcing the grants last week, Minister for the Arts Heidi Victoria said the funding would support projects that worked to preserve and record the stateâ€™s history, while sharing it with the community and future generations.
â€œThe Local History Grants Program provides access to stories that may have otherwise remained untold. â€œThe funded projects rely heavily on the extraordinary work of avid community historians, devoted to collecting and recording the stories of our past. â€œThese fascinating projects will provide us with an understanding of our past, our place and our people.â€? The Local History Grants Program is managed by Public Record Office Victoria.

Next meeting The next meeting is scheduled for 7.30pm on June 23 at the Torquay Police Station. Guest speaker will be S/C Nikki Drever on “The role of women in the force”. Phone David Cheatley for more information – 0419 529 210.
Bullying is just not right “Bullying’s just not right!” was the message from Billy Brownless, who was the special guest at Newcomb Neighbourhood Watch’s “How Cybersafe Are You” Forum on April 28. Billy, a proud father of four, urged parents to familiarise themselves with technology and what their kids are accessing online. Whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat or others, be aware of the social networks they are using. Billy emphasised the importance for parents to talk to their kids and to discuss issues with them. Geelong Police youth resource officer LS/C Robbie Noggler delivered a most informative presentation focused on cyberbullying, sexting, grooming, stalking and the legal impact of cyberbullying. Cyberbullying has reached epidemic proportions in our communities. Children are naive in what they post online. Robbie urged everyone to “think before you post” on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking sites. Some important facts presented included: • One in four kids is approached by online predators • An increased number of Facebook friends results in an increased chance of cyberbullying and/or grooming. Think about who you allow to be your friend
• Photos – be very careful what you post, and • Build a cyber rapport with your kids/ grandchildren. For more information on cyberbullying, or to learn more about the cyber world, the following websites are suggested: cybersmart.gov.au, thinkuknow.org.au/site/cyberbullying.asp, kidshelp.com.au, and justice.vic.gov.au.
Smoke-free children’s recreational areas From April 1, under the Tobacco Act 1987 smoking has been prohibited: within 10 metres of outdoor public children’s playground equipment, skate parks and sporting venues; during organised underage sporting events, as well as in the outdoor areas of public swimming pools. Where does the ban apply? Children’s playground equipment may include an individual piece of equipment as well as clusters of playground equipment, such as climbing frames, swings and slides. The ban applies to outdoor dining and drinking areas within 10 metres of outdoor children’s playground equipment. What penalties might apply? The maximum penalty for someone breaking one of these laws is five penalty units, with an infringement penalty of one penalty unit. As of July 1, 2013, a penalty unit is valued at $144.36. For more information, visit health.vic.gov.au/ tobaccoreforms/smoke-free-children-rec-areas.
Cyclists – take care With winter’s potentially wet conditions, it is more important than ever for all road users to share the road safely.
Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians all have responsibilities when using our roads. Drivers should look out for cyclists, who in turn should ride safely and responsibly. How bike riders should share the road: • Obey the road rules and stop at all red traffic lights and stop signs • Wear bright coloured clothing, and use lights when cycling at night • Ride predictably and indicate to drivers when you intend to turn or change direction • Bike riders should look out for drivers and passengers getting in and out of parked cars and be aware of the risk of car doors opening, and • Bike riders are allowed to ride side by side (two abreast) but no more than 1.5 metres apart. If the road is narrow, be courteous to other road users and ride single file, to allow vehicles to overtake safely. How drivers should share the road: • Be patient and give bike riders a clearance of at least one metre when passing them, more if travelling over 60kmh. If this clearance is not possible do not overtake until it is safe to do so. After overtaking, make sure you are well clear of the bicycle before moving back • Watch out for bike riders at intersections and roundabouts • Drive slowly and watch out for bike riders in residential streets • Check behind before opening your car door, use your mirrors as well as checking over your shoulder • Do not drive in bicycle lanes • Give way to bike riders in bicycle lanes if you are turning across the lane, and • Indicate when pulling out, changing lanes or turning, so bike riders know your intentions.

The National Celtic Festival will get under way this weekend with workshops, stalls, and a bunch of exciting performances from acts like Melbourne’s ZeoN.
Good craic at the Celtic fest
BY TIFFANY PILCHER FORMED on Melbourne’s growing Irish pub circuit, catchy four-piece ZeoN are about to show the National Celtic Festival how to get rowdy when it starts this weekend. Returning for the second year in a row, ZeoN are renowned for their quirky adaptations of popular tunes as well as their Irish-inspired originals. The band has gathered a strong following with their self-proclaimed “Irish folk freak-show” and will make you want to stomp your feet, dance, laugh, sing or even shed a tear. Drummer Renee Russo said it’s their modern approach to their mash-up of influences that is drawing crowds, young and old, to their shows. “Some of us are from Australia, some are from Ireland, and Zanita’s mother is Irish and her grandmother is Indian so she likes to incorporate the culture into our sound a little bit too. “We don’t want to get too caught up
in the tradition but it’s really important for us to recognise our roots through our music too. “We’re reaching a lot of people who really like traditional Celtic music but also a lot of younger people who are finding that style for the first time. “The scene is changing more and more and it’s really fun to be at the centre of that.” Festival director Una McAlinden said with such a diverse and high-quality range of performers and activities, the 2014 festival continues to build on the standard set in previous years. “I think every year we say it’s the best year yet, but I feel that way again this time because we keep adding new elements. “Our partnerships with other countries have really developed and we’re working with cultural organisations within Celtic nations to bring a wider variety of entertainment and a greater experience for those who come along. “We’re deepening what we do and we’re so much more than a music festival now. “We have the wildest of concerts and we
go to the other extreme with conferences on connecting to the roots of our tradition.” She said after years of gaining momentum, the event has come into its own this year. “For the first couple of years we really had to get our feet on the ground and now we finally have the breathing space to give it the kind of energy we have always wanted to. “People are starting to come to us with original ideas, knowing that we’re open to that. “So many Australians have links to Celtic countries but because we’re so far away it can become diluted. “We have ticketholders, performers and stallholders from Australia and around the world and they’re all connected in ways, it’s like a festival of friends.” The National Celtic Festival will be held in locations across Portarlington from June 6 to 9. Weekend and day passes are available, for more information and to purchase tickets, visit nationalcelticfestival.com.

Growing scarf connects Performing arts its close knit community festival receives FROM its humble beginnings as a giant ball of wool just two weeks ago, a “community scarf” has travelled far and wide connecting the people it touches. The scarf, known as PS – short for purple scarf – started life at Queenscliff Uniting Church’s Sacred Edge festival in early May. Since then, Queenscliff grandmother Maree Snow has become the custodian of the scarf inadvertently connecting with people from all walks of life. The scarf, which is presently about two metres long, first paid a visit to the opportunity shop in Point Lonsdale where some elderly women knitted for the first time in years. The next day, Mrs Snow accompanied her daughter, who is a school teacher, on a trip to Melbourne, during which dozens of students from Northern Bay Secondary College knitted a few rounds. Later, six Papua New Guinean men at the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre learnt the art of knitting while waiting to find out about their refugee status. “I taught them the same way my grandmother taught me – the rabbit goes in the hole, around the tree, under and out. By teaching them that way, they pick it up quite quickly,” Mrs Snow said. The scarf has also comforted someone emerging from a recent funeral, been used to teach at Point Lonsdale Primary School students to knit and will star at Queenscliff Uniting Church’s annual World Wide Knit over June 7 and 8. As part of the weekend, you can learn to knit or crochet and there will be knitted goods, including knee rugs, beanies, scarves and slippers for sale. And if that doesn’t warm you up, you can feast on
Devonshire Teas, soup and scones. The World Wide Knit is at Queenscliff Uniting Church, corner of Hesse and Stokes streets, between 10am and 4pm.
Queenscliff grandma Maree Snow is the custodian of the community scarf, which will star in a “yarn bombing” incident at Queenscliff Uniting Church’s annual World Wide Knit during the public holiday weekend on June 7 and 8.
promotional boost BY JAMES TAYLOR THE Lorne Festival of Performing Arts is among 19 events to share in state government funding designed to attract more tourists to regional Victoria. The three-day festival has received $3,000 through Tourism Victoria’s Country Victoria Events program. Announcing the funding last week, Minister for Tourism and Major Events Louise Asher said the program aimed to drive tourism growth through marketing and promotional activities that grow visitor numbers and importantly extend length of stay in regional centres, giving visitors the chance to enjoy the breadth of tourism attractions and experiences on offer. The Lorne Festival of Performing Arts – which will be held from August 28-31– celebrates culture by the sea through site specific installations including circus, dance, music, poetry and street performers. The program for this year’s event will be announced on Sunday. According to the state government, tourism is worth $10.9 billion to regional Victoria and employed more than 109,000 people both directly and indirectly in 2011-12.

Ms Asher said the Country Victoria Events funding was an important part of the Coalition Government’s ongoing commitment to supporting Victoria’s growing regional tourism industry. “Tourism plays a significant role in the economic development of regional Victoria and has been integral to revitalising a number of regional areas, with the development of existing and new events proving to be a key strategy for securing ongoing growth.” To subscribe for early bird tickets to the Lorne Festival of Performing Arts, head to lovelornefestival.com.

Scare Earth has the right notes
A MEXICAN restaurant in Ocean Grove has undergone renovations and has reopened as The Kingston. Formally the Mex for 28 years and only offering a night time experience, The Kingston now opens at 6.30am and offers a brand new menu including breakfast, lunch and dinner. Manager Krystal Pigdon said The Kingston was inspired by its heritage and had created a Mexicaninspired menu. “With the mixture of Mexican and modern day food means it has something for everyone,” Ms Pigdon said. “The Kingston has a homely atmosphere with a dog-friendly alfresco. “It’s a great excuse to come and dine out.” The Kingston is at 4 Grubb Road, Ocean Grove. Phone them on 5255 1959.
The Kingston employee Lucy Drayton shows off the new name.
I BEGIN this article with the assumption that most readers here have a fair understanding of the McLaren Vale winegrowing region in South Australia. I’ve featured wines from this mighty region before many times in this column. The region is renowned for its rich, powerful red wines, especially Shiraz, which is the region’s most dominant grape with over 57 per cent planted to this variety. Over the last few years, there’s been a special project under way in the Vale as producers seek to better understand and delve further into how the region works as whole, in respect to the influence of geology, soil, climate, and topography. Particularly in respect to the many different soils that make up the region’s varied geological patterns. The program set up by the McLaren Vale winegrowers is called – “McLaren Vale Scarce Earth”. It was initiated in 2009 to undertake a detailed exploration of McLaren Vale’s incredibly diverse geology and showcase the many characteristics that make up the complex nature of the region via wines made with Shiraz. Wines selected for the program must have passed through three expert tasting panels, and must come from grapes grown on a single identifiable vineyard with a vine age of at least 10 years. They are also tasted when they are one year old, then prior to, and after bottling with minimal intervention in the winery to ensure the wines reflect a pure expression of their site. Three main areas not conducive to site expression are the influences of oak, any obvious winemaking faults in the wine, and under or overt ripeness and wines that show any or all of these attributes are not selected. The careful assessment by local and independent wine experts continues to ensure that only the best examples are selected to showcase each vintage release, the 2012 vintage producing wines with excellent structure, balance, brightness and lovely acidity. I recently attended the tasting of the 2012 Scarce Earth wines, a fantastic vintage for producers and came away very impressed at the results. Here’s a small selection of some of the wines that caught my eye.
Coriole McLaren Vale ‘Willunga 1920’ Scarce Earth Shiraz 2012 ($55) This wine probably stood out the most to me with its deeply delicious, rich dark fruit purity showing lovely balance and structure. The fruit was sourced from a small one-hectare block of old vines that are the oldest involved in the project, having being planted in 1920, their elevation being 150 metres and the geology known as Christies Beach Formation. There’s a defining mineral element alongside the vibrant natural acidity and dried herb and intense raspberry notes. Super stuff.
Penny’s Hill McLaren Vale “Footprint” Shiraz 2012 ($65) Sourced from a tiny 0.8-hectare block at 140 metres elevation over the Kurrajong Formation, this deeply coloured, concentrated, and layered wine highlights the expressive dark fruit/dark chocolate flavour profile with definitive lifted spice notes on the bouquet. In the mouth, the feel is smooth and textured with structured bright acidity complementing the overall structure of the wine. Superb.
Hugh Hamilton McLaren Vale “Black Blood 1” Shiraz 2012 ($70) The fruit for this wine came from a three-hectare block with only 16 rows chosen as “special” and earmarked for this wine, at 85 metres elevation, grown in the “black cracking clays” known locally as Biscay Clays (which are slow to wet but tightly hold large volumes of water) overlaying Ngaltinga Formation – red brown clays over limestone. This is all very technical speak but the resultant wine speaks volumes for its ability to display fragrance, richness and structure with this wine a slightly leaner more elegant style showing lifted dark fruits on the nose, with a whiff of pepper and spice complementing the overall complexity. The feel is smooth, rich and rounded with good length on the finish. Excellent.

farm food AT HOME with Tony Le Deux
How pho they’ve come WE CELEBRATED my daughter’s 18th birthday recently. At this risk of self-indulgence (some think this column is nothing but self-indulgence) I would like to say what a wonderful young adult she is. I feel sad using the term “young adult”. Accurate, yes, but it seems like yesterday she was born and she will always be our beautiful baby. We invited her friends for a glass of champagne and a bite to eat. They are impressive, confident people who engage in interesting conversation. The kids who come through the door at Torquay Farm Foods are much the same. They tend to be considerably younger than my daughters but almost all are well mannered and respectful. I often remind their mothers how quickly time flies bringing up children. (Some new mothers don’t quite believe me). We employ a couple of teenagers and they too are great kids. They study hard and are very well rounded. My experience with kids today is a stark contrast to the “media myth” that 21st century children are lazy, obese and unengaged. Just look around you. The children of the Surf Coast community are healthy, outgoing, confident and ambitious. Perhaps it’s the fresh sea air and focus we have on the outdoors! I suspect kids throughout Australia are as motivated as ever. Of one fact I am certain; today’s children are more worldly than ever. In particular, their culinary knowledge is impressive. They possess an interest and a passion for cooking. In part due to television cooking shows but I think the availability and choice of food has had an impact. When I was young no one knew what sushi was, yet it is now a staple. My daughter chose a very hip Vietnamese restaurant to cater. It was wonderful and very reasonably priced. We had beef pho, crispy pork belly with pineapple salsa and Thai basil mayonnaise, cured beef with lemongrass and mint and beautiful Vietnamese baguettes with barbecue pork. (When I turned eighteen it would have been party pies and sausages rolls with sauce). The beef pho reminded me of Rick Stein’s recipe in his Far Eastern Odyssey series (see below). Lots of ingredients, but very simple once the stock is made. Finally, happy birthday my darling girl – you are the best, xx.
INGREDIENTS 1kg beef bones 3L (12 cups) cold water 2 brown onions, chopped 5cm piece ginger, peeled, sliced 5 whole star anise 2 cinnamon sticks 1 teaspoon black peppercorns 5 whole cloves 1 tablespoon coriander seeds 2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons lime juice 100g thick rice noodles 1 (200g) beef fillet steak, thinly sliced 2 cups (110g) bean sprouts 3 green onions, trimmed, thinly sliced diagonally 2 red chillies, thinly sliced 1/2 cup mint leaves 1/2 cup coriander leaves Lime wedges, to serve
METHOD Place the beef bones, water, onion, ginger, star anise, cinnamon, peppercorns, cloves and coriander seeds in a large saucepan over high heat. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat to very low and cook, skimming surface occasionally of any fat with a metal spoon, for three hours or until liquid reduces by half. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Strain through a fine sieve into a clean saucepan. Remove and reserve any meat from the bones and discard remaining solids. Place the soup over high heat and bring to a simmer. Add the fish sauce and lime juice and stir to combine. Taste and season with salt, pepper, fish sauce and lime juice. Meanwhile, place the noodles in a large heatproof bowl and pour over plenty of boiling water. Set aside for five minutes to soak. Drain well. Divide noodles and reserved beef evenly among serving bowls. Top with sliced beef. Pour the hot soup evenly among each serving bowl. Top with bean sprouts, green onion, chilli, mint and coriander. Serve immediately with lime wedges, if desired.

Mazamigo creates the tastes of Mexico FRESH, fast and tasty is what chef Cameron Proctor has his sights set on for his Torquay restaurant, Mazamigo, and his range of products. After purchasing the Bristol Street property five years ago, Mr Proctor has focused on creating a restaurant with an authentic taste of Mexico. Becoming a chef at the age of 20 in Wellington, New Zealand, his 15 years in the food industry have led him to have a clear vision of the future for him and his family. A chef, restaurant owner, father of two and husband, Mr Proctor certainly has his work cut out for him, but he is not stopping there. Over the past year, he has developed a range of dips, salsas, sauces and frozen meals that are inspired by the Mexican flavours that he loves and that permeate Mazamigo’s kitchen. His cooking dreams started to explore new heights when Mazamigo products were being
stocked on the shelves of local stores in Torquay and IGA stores in Ballarat. “Having the support of local business is just what I needed to launch what I see as a major life achievement,” he said. “A large part of my life is all about feeding and nurturing the people around me, and I like to think about Mazamigo as being an iconic part of the Torquay community, where family and friends get together and share good times over wholesome food both in the restaurant and at home.” Mazamigo at 22 Bristol Road, Torquay is open from Tuesday to Sunday for lunch (11am-2pm) and for dinner (5.30pm until late). The Mazamigo product range can be found at Mazamigo, Peaches Fruit & Veg, Torquay IGA and all of Ballarat’s IGA Stores. For bookings and more information, phone 5261 9944 or head to mazamigo.com.au.

Graney set to launch his ‘best of’ from the future BY REBECCA LAUNER COMPELLING and unique as ever, Melbourne musician Dave Graney is set to launch his new album in Ocean Grove next week. Fearful Wiggings is Graney’s second album, out of roughly 28 in his career, to be billed as a solo recording. He will be launching it at the The Piping Hot Chicken and Burger Grill on June 13. It’s a “singer-songwriter” styled recording after a run of upbeat, high energy releases over the last decade. Graney collaborated with wife Clare Moore, UK folk guitar master Nick Harper and Lisa Gerard (Dead Can Dance) on this record, which explores everything from sparse folk, jazz, to adventurous art pop, all with a richly textured ambience.
Graney and Moore, who released an album last year with her band THE DAMES, have played music together since 1978 and have made every album together. Graney describes Fearful Wiggings as 13 songs with lots of bounce, drama and wit. “This is a very personal record and each song is in a world and time of its own,” Graney said. “It’s a best of from the future.” Graney said he would be performing songs from Fearful Wiggings at his Ocean Grove launch, as well as many songs from his back catalogue he hadn’t aired in years. The performance is at the start of a national tour which will run through June to late August. Tickets can be purchased at The Piping Hot Chicken and Burger Grill.

Roadshow laughs roll into Aireys
Dave Callan is coming to the Aireys Pub as part of the International Comedy Festival’s roadshow.
T THE Aireys Pub is welcoming the International Comedy Festival R Roadshow for the third year running, on June 14. Pub manager and part-owner Phil Johnson said the last couple oof years of the event had been a hysterical success, giving the local ccommunity a much needed laugh as they move into what can otherwise bbe humourless winter “Not really, there is always something to laugh at down here in A Aireys Inlet,” he said. “This year will be no exception with the Roadshow featuring local, in international, male, female, straight, gay, big, small, old young you nname it they seem to have it covered this year. “In the big, hairy category comes Dave Callan, who blew away this yyear’s comedy festival with some hysterical dance routines – check hhim out on YouTube – or Noel Kolhatker, who fits the young and funny ccategory. “The comedians have come to love the casual, relaxed, more in intimate vibe of the Aireys Pub. “We ensure the fires are burning the drinks are flowing and the kkitchen cranking so come on down and enjoy a laugh.” Since re-opening its doors, the pub has gone from strength to strength, uunderpinned by community events such as the Comedy Festival road sshow, the Open Mic Festival, Winter Song, the MS Pongathon. If you can’t make the comedy roadshow, the pub is a great place to ddrop in for lunch or dinner seven days a week, 365 days a year. In winter, the open fire is always burning and the menu is evercchanging and made up of winter favourites of soups, shanks, winter pies and of course the comfort of a chicken parmigiana. “See you for a laugh at the pub!”

From shelf to mantelpiece for Torquay Books BY HAMISH BROOKS PRIORITISING customer service is the main reason why Torquay Books won the prestigious Leading Edge Books regional store of the year award, according to the store’s owner. Rosemary Featherston said “customer service, customer service and customer service” had been the key to the store’s success over its 10 years of operation. “Leading Edge Books has 180 members around Australia and they decide on the award in consultation with publishers.” In addition to focusing on the experience of customers in store, Mrs Featherston said a willingness to sell into events and sell into schools in the Geelong region would have attracted the judges’ attention and been appealing to publishers. She said despite commentary questioning the viability of the retail book world due to the challenges
posed by online purchasing and e-books, independent bookshops were thriving. “We call the shots, we curate our stock and have a big say in what we sell. “Having fantastic, friendly, knowledgeable staff helps too. “Torquay people, even though they may not know it, are involved in how the shop looks because their taste dictates what I stock and what works. “People come in and say ‘I’m so glad you’re here’. “The town is very seasonal but there are plenty of people here all year round now – it’s been a noticeable change since we opened 10 years ago.” Mrs Featherston said that at the award night she had talked herself out of her chances of winning, so to hear Torquay Books read out as the winner was even more of a thrill. Torquay Books is located at 9 Gilbert Street, Torquay.

Aisha the Geisha heading from Koo Wee Rup to Drysdale IN AISHA the Geisha, a hilarious comedy coming to the Potato Shed in Drysdale, Koo Wee Rup Dairy Farmer Aisha Ronan is devastated when her fiancé Craig, the captain of the Nar Nar Goon Goons footy team, travels to Japan on a footy trip and falls in love with Yumiko, a beautiful Japanese woman. Determined to get Craig back, Aisha leaves her beloved cows for the Tokyo jungle to talk sense into him before his family’s asparagus harvest. Aisha, who plays in Koo Wee Rup cover band The Dairy Chicks, soon learns that karaoke will not be enough to win back his heart. She embarks on a journey of self-discovery and explores the mysterious and often excruciatingly lonely world of a trainee Geisha. Aisha the Geisha is a hilarious multimedia and musical journey of love, courage and redemption (with a lot of confusion thrown in for good measure!) The themes are universal but anyone who has fallen in love, been betrayed and had to fight for their heart will relate to Aisha’s journey. The show features original songs by The Dairy Chicks including “Hot Tub Geisha”, “Aisha You’ll Never Make a Geisha”, “Koo Wee Rup Heart”
Aisha the Geisha is on its way to the Potato Shed.
and “There’s Oodles of Blokes in The Rup”. Aisha the Geisha is on at the Potato Shed in Drysdale on Saturday June 14 at 8pm. Tickets are $25 ($20 concession) and are available from the Potato Shed, call 5251 1998, or at any City of Greater Geelong Customer Service Centre.

Book gives shape to surfing’s evolution BY JAMES TAYLOR
The history of surfboard shaping in three countries is traced in a new book. Photo: MAURO LADU @ JÜRGEN HÖNSCHEID
THE evolution of surfboards and surfing culture in three of the sport’s most iconic locations is the subject of a new book co-authored by Dr Andrew Warren. Dr Warren is an avid surfer and a human geographer (the study of the relationship between people and places) at the University of New England. Surfing Place, Surfboard Makers: Craft, Creativity, and Cultural Heritage in Hawaii, California, and Australia is the first book of its kind to trace the evolution of surfboards and surfing culture in Hawaii, California and the south-east of Australia. Co-authored with Professor Chris Gibson from the University of Wollongong, the book examines the origins of surfing and its popularity in Australia, the rise of craft surfboard makers and the impact of corporate juggernauts, such as Billabong and Quiksilver, on the local industry. At the centre of the book are the board shapers who have attempted to retain the mythology and creativity of their art form in the face of massproduced boards and corporate pressure. “To a surfer, a board is more than a piece of equipment,” Dr Warren, who travelled to California and Hawaii to conduct his research, said. It is a symbol, a physical emblem with cultural, social, and emotional meanings. “Surfboard workshops are hives of creativity where legacies of rich, cultural heritage and the
local environment combine to produce unique, bold board designs customised to suit local surf conditions.” Surfing Place, Surfboard Makers: Craft, Creativity, and Cultural Heritage in Hawaii, California, and Australia was launched at the Hawaii Book and Music Festival in Honolulu. The book is available now through the University of Hawai’i Press. Head to uhpress. hawaii.edu/p-9116-9780824839437.aspx.

Young people to Be Heard on air BY JAMES TAYLOR YOUNG people can get involved with their local community radio station through the latest round of the state government’s Be Heard! grants. Announcing the opening of the grants last week, South Barwon MP Andrew Katos said young people in the Geelong region who are keen to explore a career in radio will now have access to training and mentoring opportunities. “I encourage community radio stations in rural and regional Victoria to apply for the $65,000 Be Heard! grants. “This is a fantastic opportunity for young people in our community to explore the possibility of an exciting career in the radio industry – as a broadcaster, producer or sound engineer. “Most importantly, they will have the opportunity to express themselves in the public arena and have their say on things that are important to them.” Minister for Youth Affairs Ryan Smith said the state government has committed $200,000 over four years to the program, which has increased the participation of young people in community radio broadcasting. “Over the past three years, 27 community radio stations from across Victoria have received the funding needed to provide fantastic work experience opportunities. “These programs help young Victorians gain experience and develop important life skills that are needed to get work ready. Grant applications for Be Heard! are open until July 4. For more information, head to youthcentral.vic.gov.au and search for “Be Heard”.

Beauty and the Beast’s talented line-up unveiled BY REBECCA LAUNER A MAGICAL Disney classic will come to life when GSODA Junior Players perform Beauty and the Beast in June. Geelong’s premier youth theatre company has unveiled the line-up of talented performers who will lead the Geelong production, which includes all of the music, magic and colourful characters of the beloved Disney film. Portraying the kind-hearted beauty Belle will be talented 16-year-old Sarah Krndija, while Noah Vernon will embrace his wild side when he fills the role of the Beast. Jye Cannon will portray the charismatic Gaston, while the cast of magical castle inhabitants includes Lochie Erard as Lumiere the candlelabra, Liam Ryder as Cogsworth the clock, Claire Sims as the wise Mrs Potts and Maggie Evans as her innocent offspring Chip. Supported by a cast of more than 60 performers, aged between 11 and 17 years, the actors will bring to life musical favourites including Be Our Guest, Gaston, Human Again and, of
course, the beautiful title song Beauty and the Beast. Presiding over the magic will be director Andrew Cook, vocal directors Adelle Gregory and Hannah Petrie-Allbutt, and choreographer Nikki Leneghan. Beauty and the Beast will be a highlight for the not-for-profit company, which next year celebrates its 50th anniversary of entertaining audiences while fostering rising talent. Former GSODA Juniors include movie star Guy Pearce, soon to be seen on the big screen in Breathe In and The Rover, opera singer Peter Coleman Wright currently performing with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, and Andre Jewson who has a principal role in The Lion King in Sydney. Discover the magic for yourself when Beauty and the Beast hits the stage at The Playhouse, Geelong Performing Arts Centre, from June 21 to 28. Bookings are already open for special daytime school shows. Tickets to the general public are on sale now at GPAC.
Noah Vernon (the Beast) and Sarah Krndija (Belle) are supported by a cast of more than 60 performers who will bring to life your musical favourites.

MOORE WEEKLY STARS
JUNE 5 - JUNE 12 2014 © Joanne Madeline Moore 2014
Express your individuality! Friday’s full moon aspects put an extra bounce in your step and a glint in your eye, as you initiate projects with passion and enthusiasm. Be inspired by birthday great Judy Garland “Always be a firstrate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of somebody else”. But Saturday’s Mars/Pluto square amps up your bossy, assertive side.
This week’s stars shine a bright spotlight on power issues within a major relationship. You both need to cool down and compromise, otherwise the emotional tug-of-war will just continue. Single Crabs – have you been looking for love in all the obvious places? Pluto encourages you to be more subtle and strategic. Sunday is super for group activities and creative joint ventures.
You have a strong desire to communicate via activities like teaching, public speaking, serious study, intense discussions or neighborhood negotiations. But with Mercury retrograde, and Venus opposing Saturn don’t be dismayed if people misinterpret the message you are trying to convey. Be patient Libra! Others will eventually come to appreciate your point-of-view.
In your desire to get ahead this week, you’re likely to arouse intense opposition. Avoid the temptation to boss others around, as it will only make matters worse. Take a chill pill Capricorn! Instead, try channeling your excess energy into regular physical exercise. Activities like golf, jogging, biking, hiking, bush walking and rock climbing suit your downto-earth, disciplined style.
Issues involving your finances could come to a head over the coming week. If your money is tied up with someone else either personally or professionally then make sure you adopt a conservative approach and keep the lines of communication open. Friday’s Venus/Saturn opposition pours cold water on a close relationship, and it will take patience to warm things up again.
Lions can be very vain creatures. There’s nothing wrong with looking good, but don’t make it your main focus. Look a lot deeper in yourself and others to find the real beauty within. Reflect on the wise words of Michael J. Fox born on June 9, 1961: “One of the things I’ve learned is that vanity is worthless. Whatever you look like is such a complete and utter waste of time.”
You’re set for a tricky week, as Venus opposes Saturn in your sign and Mars squares Pluto your ruling planet. When it comes to close relationships, expect anything from fiery confrontations to stony silences. Friday’s full moon magnifies money matters and self-esteem issues. Have confidence in your inner worth, and avoid being too attached to material possessions.
Ambitious Aquarius - do you fantasise about upsizing your lifestyle? Friday’s full moon stimulates your hopes and wishes zone, but make sure you have the cold, hard cash to finance your super-sized dreams. In the current economic climate, small and sustainable is the sensible way to live. And expect some family problems or workplace friction, as stress levels rise.
Geminis are the grand masters of distraction, but avoiding responsibilities won’t work this week – it will only delay the inevitable. And with your ruling planet Mercury in retrograde mode until July 1, you need to apply the brain brakes and think carefully before you speak. Otherwise you’ll say the wrong thing at the wrong time, and unintentionally upset others.
Retrograde Mercury continues to regurgitate unresolved issues, and it will take patience and persistence to work your way through the long list. Friday’s full moon fires up your home zone, so it’s not the ideal time to get the long lost relatives together for a reunion, or to bring up sensitive issues with fractious family members. Plus be extra careful when talking, texting and tweeting.
With Friday’s full moon falling in your sign, your positive Sagittarian traits are amplified – and so are your negative ones. Aim to be generous, gregarious and optimistic rather than bossy, belligerent and impatient. Attached Archers - Saturn favours stability in relationships, as you focus on solving problems… rather than running away! Singles – love and work are linked.
Have you been procrastinating Pisces? With this week’s full moon lighting up your work zone, you need to shake up your daily routine and be bold and brave as you plan your future career path. If you have the confidence to listen to your intuition, you’ll be one step ahead of the professional pack! It’s also time to tackle DIY projects you’ve been putting off around the home.

Lighting your flame knights and bishops. Truth is we spent hours chasing each other around the board as neither of us knew how to win – how to checkmate the other to mercifully call an end to the game – so we went toand-fro rather than head-to-head. And I’m wondering how well we play in our own lives and whether we “play intentionally” or just move pieces around. I can look back over my life and identify plenty of times when I was merely moving the pieces or doing what I thought were the right moves, yet wasn’t actually engaged in the play. At times I wondered what the daily shuffle was all about, the never-ending routine of drifting with the tide. It’s only when searching with intent, like playing chess to win, that what we do in the everyday becomes purposeful. And it’s in the search to light our
BY BARBARA GRACE MY SON visited last weekend and we played a game of chess together. We haven’t done that since he was 11 – which seems a few lifetimes ago, yet was only 10 years back. We were both rusty. I did my usual “go-for-the-queen” routine and lost mine in the process without capturing his. Playing with my son took me back to when my father taught me to play chess. He taught me how to move the pieces, and I became pretty agile with

flame that finding direction becomes more of a “must” than a “wish”. How does this happen? Not by chance but by choice, because it’s in searching and acknowledging our talents – then developing them through practice and application that things change. Sometimes it’s in the pursuit of the game that we find our purpose. Sometimes it’s in bringing more of our authentic selves to the moment when we become fully engaged. And sometimes it’s as we explore our minds and find sources of inspiration which recharge our creativity that we truly play a game we care about. The School of Modern Psychology is launching a new program, Living Well, and invites you to join them in the pursuit of living life more wholeheartedly. Barbara Grace is the director of the School of Modern Psychology.
ALZHEIMER’S Australia Vic launched its first online learning resource last week. Focusing on carer education, Dementia Learning Online aims to achieve practice improvement in the workplace among residential and community carers who play a key role in the lives of people living with dementia. Alzheimer’s Australia Vic chief executive officer Maree McCabe said that Dementia Learning Online is an innovative and accessible education resource that will go a long way to supporting and enhancing the quality of care provided to the estimated 320,000 people with dementia in Australia.

Shire works towards better health and wellbeing in Winchelsea BY JAMES TAYLOR THE Surf Coast Shire is continuing its efforts to improve the health and wellbeing of people in the Winchelsea community through a major collaborative effort. At their meeting last week, councillors considered a progress report on the Winchelsea Health and Wellbeing Project, which was established last July.
An earlier study of the shire’s wider health and wellbeing established that the township of Winchelsea scored slightly above the fifth most disadvantaged municipality in Victoria on the SEIFA index of disadvantage. The project is being led by the shire and Barwon Medicare Local, and has made a series of recommendations in three priority areas: health and wellbeing, access to services, and
education and employment. Cr Heather Wellington said one example of the issues affecting the town was counselling services being lost due to the loss of a provider. She said although there were many services located in Geelong, travelling there was not always an option. “Sometimes you just don’t get the services, as it’s too difficult to get to them.”
She said a survey carried out for the project in February produced “some really interesting results”. “We now have a sense of what we have, what we need and where the gaps are.” Cr Rod Nockles said the New South Wales state government’s focus on local services was a good example to follow. “We want to work actively with all other levels of government; I think that’ll

be tremendously important.” He said it was also important to engage with the not-for-profit sector and to remove duplication of services. “We compete head-to-head with Hesse Rural Health on aged care packages, and it’s not clear why we should be doing that.” The draft implementation plan for the project will be presented to the council this month.

Donate to keep Lorne hospital innovating LORNE Community Hospital strives for excellence in healthcare but with limited government resources relies heavily on additional funding. The hospitalâ€™s annual appeal aims to raise funds for different areas and priorities within the hospital. This yearâ€™s annual appeal will be directed towards creating a â€œTechnology and Competencies Innovation Fundâ€?. The fund will help acquire the additional technologies and clinical competencies needed to overcome the limitations imposed by small population and remoteness. Lorne Community Hospital chief executive officer Kate Gillan said the Lorne Community Hospital has pioneered many significant advances in rural and remote care including an onsite X-ray service which relays directly to relevant senior consultants in Geelong and telehealth facilities which provide a direct link to specialist doctors, particularly in an emergency. â€œWe also have a number of Rural and Isolated Practice Endorsed Registered Nurses (RIPERNS) with advanced clinical skills able to initiate clinical management when no doctor is available on site. â€œWe would ideally like all of our nursing staff to hold this qualification in the future. â€œOur most important resource is our staff and their greatest priority is to provide best practice care to their community. â€œWith your support (for the innovation fund), we can create opportunity, growth and a viable future.â€? The hospital inviting the public to join them in making a gift to the Technology and Competencies
Innovation Fund as part of the 2014 Annual Appeal. â€œEvery donation will allow us to invest in the hospital's most precious resource. â€œWe are a centre of innovation and expect we will be pioneering many more clinical services that not only benefit our rural community but attract first rate clinical staff to live and work in Lorne. â€œTo keep this innovation flowing the hospital needs the communityâ€™s helpâ€? Donations can be made online at
lornecommunityhospital.com.au or directly at the hospital. Donations of $2 or more are tax deductible. If you have any queries contact fundraising coordinator Katy Kennedy, on 5289 4386 or email@example.com. Lorne Community Hospital graduate nurse Mim Harrison. The hospital is striving for excellence by creating a â€œTechnology and Competencies Innovation Fundâ€?.
Colac Otway Shire adopts physical activity strategy BY JAMES TAYLOR A STRATEGY which looks at how to integrate planning for increased physical activity has been adopted by Colac Otway Shire Council. The Physical Activity Strategy will help create an environment that supports physical activity and will generate recommendations that are linked into the Municipal Health and Wellbeing Plan. It particularly focuses on identifying physical activity intervention such as development, policies, programs and services that are cost effective and most likely to succeed in increasing peopleâ€™s ongoing physical activity using available resources and through the development of strategic partnerships. Shire recreation, arts and culture manager Ian Seuren said participation in physical activity was a
cornerstone of good health and wellbeing. â€œWith the estimated annual cost of physical inactivity to Australia $13.8 billion, physical activity and wellbeing needs to be a priority for our shire. â€œThe benefits of regular activity include the prevention of injuries and the onset of noncommunicable diseases such as cardiovascular disease, breast cancer, colon cancer, type two diabetes, obesity and osteoporosis. â€œIt can also increase peopleâ€™s self-esteem and confidence, improve sleep quality, provide people with a greater sense of energy, reduce depression, stress and anxiety, improve mental health and increase life expectancy.â€? Mr Seuren said in putting together the strategy, which was initiated as part of state government funding for the G21 Physical Activity Strategy, it
was important to note that there was not one simple solution to increase physical activity levels. â€œA whole-of-community approach is needed, and itâ€™s vital that we begin to integrate the encouragement of greater activity as soon as possible. â€œThe most recent studies on obesity in the Colac Otway Shire found that levels were higher than the state average at 19 per cent (compared to 17.3 per cent state-wide).â€? He said an increase in body mass was not the only concern in the region. â€œAccording to Diabetes Australia, 1,062 people in Colac Otway Shire had diabetes in 2011, up from 540 people in 2001. Thatâ€™s an increase of 97 per cent, during a time when the population growth has grown by 6.5 per cent, and equates to one new case of diabetes being diagnosed each week.â€?

Brad takes the LEAD and shares his story BY JAMES TAYLOR OCEAN Grove resident Brad Connelly says the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) has given him more choice, more freedom and more flexibility in his care. Mr Connelly, a quadriplegic, is one of the participants in the Barwon trial of the NDIS and also one of those taking part in the Leading, Educating, Advocating for Disability (LEAD) Barwon project. Funded by the state government and run by the Committee for Geelong, the project allowed people to speak about their personal experiences with the NDIS. The 20 participants in LEAD Barwon will graduate today, but Mr Connelly said he was keen to use the skills he had learned to advocate for the scheme more widely. Mr Connelly suffered a complete spinal cord injury in 1997 while bodysurfing in Noosa Heads but did not qualify for compensation, so he and wife Pam had to fund much of the support and home renovations themselves. “There are really two groups in the country as far as spinal injuries go – the compensated and the uncompensated,” he said. “If I’d been in a car accident, I would have got something like 200 hours of care a week. “I think the NDIS is really going to fill that gap and provide equality in the system.” Along with extra care, the scheme provided funding for Mr Connelly to complete a Certificate IV in training and assessment, as well as freeing up his wife to work for the first time in many years. “I used to be a plumber; I can’t do that anymore,” he said.
“I’ve wanted to retrain for years but haven’t had the support to do that.” He plans to apply for a diploma in disability next week. “LEAD Barwon has really highlighted the strength and the courage of people who are living with a disability here,” he said. “I used to think doing what I used to do was challenging – this is far more challenging.”
Brad and Pam Connelly have praised the local trial of the National Disability Insurance Scheme. Photo: JAMES TAYLOR
Immunity might need a boost as cold sets in BY DR ERIN COFFEY WE’VE had some beautiful weather during May, but it appears winter’s chill is settling in and it’s this transition period that brings out the germs. Every second person seems to be coughing and spluttering, but how do some people make it through unscathed, without as much as a sniffle? The answer is their line of defence is hard at work. Our immune system is made up of several
defence mechanisms; our gut has a mucosal lining, our skin secretes sebum, our tears and saliva all contain anti-microbial properties; our lungs produce phlegm (mucous) which traps particles so it can be coughed out; and most microbes can be killed by stomach acid. Our lymphatic system is like a germ collecting unit; it courses all over the body, picks up microbes and bacteria and removes them via specialised filters. There are hundreds of viruses that cause the common cold, so our army of white blood cells will have to repeatedly fight off many different colds each year. Sometimes our defences are overrun. Occasionally, our immune system
“malfunctions” and it recognises the body’s own tissues and harmless foreign bodies as foreign and dangerous and therefore attacks itself. This problem causes autoimmune disorders and allergies. Keeping your immune system in peak condition is the same as keeping healthy. Exercise regularly. Don’t smoke. Get adequate sleep. Eat a healthy diet, ensuring you’re getting micronutrients such as Vit A, B2, B6, D and Vit E, Selenium and Zinc. Provide time for laughter and contentment. Ensure your body is aligned and able to function to capacity. If you feel like you need an immune boost, I’d recommend seeing a Naturopath or a Chinese Medicine Practitioner. Dr Erin Coffey is an Osteopath at The Health Creation Centre in Ocean Grove.

The future in three dimensions TALKING COMPUTERS WITH BRAD MCDERMOTT FROM TORQUAY COMPUTERS Ever dreamt of having a machine that will make whatever you request at the push of a button? That’s what the future is promising in new technology called 3D printing. Well, when I say “new”, the technology has been around for quite a while, but with advances in technology and commercialisation it is now priced within reach of ordinary consumers. Basically, a consumer 3D printer is usually (but not limited to) a small, box-sized contraption with a print head that can movie in all three directions. Instead of printing on paper like a normal inkjet printer, it prints layers of molten plastic bit by bit to build up a three-dimensional object. The possibilities of the things you could make are endless. You can use easy-to-obtain design software to make up a prototype or just download
p. 5261 2888 m. 0439 070 571 torquaycomputers.com.au 106
pre-made designs from the internet from one of many sites, which mostly offer their designs for free. The first thing I would do is 3D print a back for my TV remote to stop the batteries from falling out. Dad 1, kids 0. There are many possible uses for this technology, such as printing food, prosthetic body parts or even printing another 3D printer. I think 3D printers will exponentially take off as the price comes down and they become even more affordable. The price in Australia for an entrylevel printer is roughly $1,200-$1,500. While this puts it out of my price league, I can remember when normal ink printers were a similar price and now you can pick up a cheap multifunction printer for 40 bucks. I am sure there are a million possibilities to make your fortune with one of these printers; I just wish I was smart enough to know how.

Grubbers can’t overcome undefeated Ammos BY JAMES TAYLOR OCEAN Grove has failed to unseat Geelong Amateur from the top of the BFL ladder, going down by 27 points in the round 8 clash at Queen’s Park. There was only 19 points between the two teams at the last break, but the Ammos pulled away in the last quarter. Damien Zaparenkov bagged six for the undefeated home side, while Travis Gavin slotted four for the Grubbers. Drysdale remains in second spot on the ladder by percentage after a narrow 7-point victory over Barwon Heads. Ben Carmichael kicked five goals for the Hawks, while Seagulls players Daniel Hovey and Nicholas Hill kicked four each. Modewarre kept Queenscliff scoreless in the last
quarter to turn a four-point deficit into a 34-point win. Joshua Finch, Jeremy Ollis and Jesse Douglas kicked three each for the Warriors. Portarlington pressed hard to draw within three goals of Anglesea at three-quarter time but were unable to overcome the home side, eventually losing by 45 points. Joshua Bowman bagged five for the Roos. Torquay recruit Ty Zantuck slammed home 10 goals against Newcomb but somehow did not rate among the best players as the Tigers racked up a monster 274-point win. Fellow Tigers James Darke (five goals), Nelson Browne (four) and Michael Stanley (four) also had a big day out. For results and fixtures for all grades, see page 119 or head to aflbarwon.com.au.

Geelong Amateur’s Jenni Gardner in action.
IN THE match of the round, Portarlington edged out Anglesea in a one goal thriller and now sit four points clear of the Roos in third spot on the ladder. With a tall shooting target for each team under the ring, it really came down to defence and the experience of Lisa Dyer and Tania Du Plessis led the Demons charge to get them over the line. Rebecca Trenery was the standout for Anglesea, which sits in fourth spot but are ahead of Modewarre on percentage only. Modewarre travelled to Queenscliff and came away winners by 11 goals, but really needed a bigger win to lift their percentage and get them into the top four. They take on Portarlington next week which should be a hard, physical clash. Queenscliff are still yet to record a win for the season. Newcomb are also yet to record a win and suffered another punishing loss at the hands of reigning premiers Torquay. Amy Vogels scored a whopping 72 goals for the Tigers, while Joanne Warnes put away 32 and Olivia Hobbs was named best-on. The Power were able to score a respectable 14-goals and continue to improve each week. Geelong Amateur overcame another slow start to beat Ocean Grove by 10 goals at home. Jenni Gardner was solid in goal attack, notching 24 goals and three votes, while the Ammos mid-courters worked tirelessly to supply the ball. The Grubbers, who now sit in sixth position
on the ladder and four points behind Modewarre, take on Anglesea in Round 9. The Ammos take on Barwon Heads next week before teams begin to face each other for the second time this season. The Seagulls had a solid win over Drysdale, posting a 43-25 final score. Shae Rowbottom accounted for more than half of Barwon Heads score, while Milli Leahy put up 17 goals for Drysdale. The Seagulls will be tested when they take on ladder leaders Geelong Amateur next week.

FRESHWATER anglers are reminded that the trout fishing season in rivers officially closes at midnight on Monday June 9, after the Queen’s Birthday long weekend. Fisheries Victoria executive director Ross McGowan said the closure, which remains in place until early September, protects most spawning trout and gives wild stocks a better opportunity to reproduce. “The Queen’s Birthday long weekend provides recreational anglers with their last chance to catch trout in our rivers before the season finishes up,” Mr McGowan said. “Although the streams and rivers close during winter, anglers can still fish for trout and salmon in Victorian lakes and reservoirs, which remain open year round. “The three month trout and salmon closed season applies only to rivers and streams. “Fisheries Victoria stocks more than 130 lakes annually with trout and
salmon so there are still plenty of great inland fishing opportunities on offer while the rivers are closed.” Mr McGowan said the state-wide fish stocking program helped maintain productive trout fisheries and is funded from fishing licence fees and the state government’s $16 million Recreational Fishing Initiative. “One of the best performing lakes recently has been Bullen Merri, near Camperdown, where our stockings of Chinook salmon have delivered fish to 1.7 kilograms for anglers trolling lures and bait-fishing.” Other stocked lakes worth a visit during winter include: • Hepburn Lagoon • Tullaroop Reservoir • Lake Purrumbete • Lauriston Reservoir • Lake Eildon • Lake Bolac • Blue Rock Lake • Lake Hume • Lake Wendouree
• • • • • • • • • • •
Eildon Pondage Bellfield Reservoir Lake Fyans Moorabool Reservoir West Barwon Dam Barkers Creek Reservoir Lake Toolondo Wurdiboluc Reservoir Upper Coliban Reservoir Rocklands Reservoir Newlyn Reservoir Mr McGowan said trout fishing in rivers would re-open at midnight on Friday September 5.
Anglesea River update: It was good last week to see the council acknowledge the concerns of the community following the Anglesea listening post. I would like to thank the shire officers for the time they put in really listening to the community views. The reconsideration of the opening of the river mouth and the moratorium at least for now on the removal of the
stone wall offers hope that we may still be able to put in place management programs that may avoid the ongoing river disasters, and if not solving them, at least helping to mitigate them. The water technology report once again failed to address the issue of the sand at the river mouth being anchored by the remnants of the stone wall. This among other issues has to be dealt with.
Photos and giveaway 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 email@example.com.

It was also the semi-final of the 4BBB Knockout. Ros Holland and Myrell McConachy will play Linda Aimers and Aileen Morton in the final.
FROM THE MEMBERSâ€™ ROOM with -1. NTP Lynne Hyett 13th. Saturday Par: It was a very narrow race for the ladies with plenty of names near the top of the board. In the end it was Marg Hales who won by the slimmest of margins, scoring -1. The runner up with -2 was Susan Barrett.
MEDLEY Tuesday Par Medley: A small field for the 9 hole Medley. It was Rae Rayner and Karin Wiese tied on +1 but it was Rae who played better down the stretch winning on a countback. Sunday Par Medley: It was a pretty dark and gloomy morning but the rain largely stayed away with very light winds for the morning. We had a bunch at a top with a three-way tie at +1. The winner in a count back with an outstanding finish was Timothy Wilson scoring +1. Runner-up was none other than Charlie Sharplin.
PORTARLINGTON GOLF CLUB A VERY successful Ladies Pennant season came to an end with our Division 1 team of Adele Huggard, Jo Wylie, Jenny Edmanson, Bec Waldron, Angie Foott (Captain) and Jeanette Barclay coming out victorious after completing the season undefeated. They went into their final match against Curlewis needing a win to guarantee them of the title. They came out of it with a convincing 4/1 victory. Congratulations, ladies, on a marvellous effort in claiming your first title since 2010. Special congrats to Jenny who remained undefeated for the season! Our other teams accredited themselves very well also, with Division 4 finishing third; Division 5, second; and Division 6, third.
