WHAT TRASH Shameless illegal waste dumping on the rise in Ocean Grove
BY TIFFANY PILCHER THE audacious dumping of a truckload of rubble at the Ocean Grove Main Beach recently has infuriated coastal managers and raised concerns about the escalation of rubbish dumping. About three weeks ago, a large amount of building rubble was illegally dumped at the driveway leading to the Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club. Two Barwon Coast committee members spent the entire next day cleaning the site using trucks and machinery to remove the rubble and sanitise the area. Barwon Coast coastal operations manager John Henderson said there had been a marked increase in the number of incidents recently, but the amount of rubbish and the location made this occasion particularly worrying. “It seems to be happening quite a bit and how obvious the spot is that this happened at really surprised me, this is our busiest area – it was right on the main beach. It was either a small truckload or a large trailer full of rubble and it was in a very public area and that’s definitely a concern.” He said one of the biggest problems stemming from the dumping was the potential health threat to people in the area and the local environment. “There have been occasions when there has been asbestos in the material, which is a worry for the whole community. If hazardous material runs into a drain or contaminates an area, there could be huge consequences.” In response, Barwon Coast is
considering increasing security in dumping hotspots including surveillance. Mr Henderson said regularly increasing fees for the proper disposal of waste was a likely contributor to the ongoing issue. “Tip fees are going up and there is no hard rubbish collection for the area so people obviously think this is a good option,” he said. The cost of disposing of all types of waste at Drysdale Landfill will increase as of July 1 this year, with the price of dumping building rubble set to jump from $91.60 to $100.40 per tonne. City of Greater Geelong general manager for city services Gary van Driel said the Drysdale Landfill fees were rising due to increases in state and federal taxes and council was taking steps to reduce illegal dumping. “This rise has driven up the cost of burying rubbish at landfill to the point where approximately 60 per cent of the cost of waste going to landfill is taken up in taxes. The council’s ‘Rethink your Rubbish’ campaign has been introduced to curb illegal dumping activity and help residents dispose of unwanted goods by finding alternatives to burying materials in landfill. “Throughout the year we host ‘Drop off for Free’ allowing residents the chance to dispose of items such as TVs, computer items, white goods, hot water systems and tools.” Barwon Coast is urging anyone who has information about illegal rubbish dumping or sees anything suspicious to report it to council or local police.

BARWON Coast has the responsibility for the management of 13 kilometres of coastal Crown land from Collendina to Black Rock including our beautiful beaches in Ocean Grove, Barwon Heads and 13th Beach. Our committee members are Barwon Heads and Ocean Grove residents appointed by the state government for three year terms via a process run by the Department of Environment and Primary Industry (formerly DSE) KEY RESPONSIBILITIES Barwon Coast has six key areas of responsibility being: • natural resource protection • natural resource development – managing public use and development of the reserve • accommodation operations – operation, maintenance and promotion of camping areas and caravan parks including the Barwon Heads Caravan Park and the Riverview Family Caravan Park Ocean Grove • tourism, recreation and education – implementation of services and facilities • commercial leases and licences - management • port operations – management of the Port of Barwon Heads. WHALE MIGRATION Whale migration is a common phenomenon along the Barwon Coast. Between the months of May to August we should start to see the migration of humpback whales that are leaving the summer conditions of the Antarctic to head to Queensland waters to breed. This time of the year we should also start to see the migration of the Southern Right Whales, which
will be heading to Warrnambool for the birthing of their calves. Different animals use different methods to navigate their way around the landscape. This may be by the sun, stars, wind, landmarks or the Earth’s magnetic field. Victoria has already received two very early sightings of humpback whales, and we are keen to hear from members of the public of any whale sightings you may experience along our coastline. We would love to receive your photos and verbal reports of your sightings. It is important to note, the date, times, direction of travel, and location. These sightings provide valuable information for us all to gain further knowledge and understanding of what’s happening locally and globally.

BUDGETS FOR 2013/14 The committee has approved a range camping and accommodation unit tariffs for 2013/14 that will generate approximately $4.9 million revenue – an increase of approximately four per cent on last year. The caravan park and camping operations will provide an operating surplus of $2.7 million that will fund our coastal operations ($1.1 million),
administration, plant and vehicle operations, education, natural resource protection etcetera plus the funding for capital works. Additional financial resources will be made available for our coastal environment role following upon a major study of existing flora along the coast that has identified areas of major weed infestation and areas of pristine vegetation. COASTAL MANAGEMENT PLAN Our 2012-13 to 2014-15 coastal management plan has been approved by the Minister for Environment and Climate Change and is now being implemented. Hard copies are available from the Barwon Coast office and are also available on our website. RUBBISH DUMPING Unfortunately we are experiencing an increase in illegal dumping of rubbish along the coastal dunes both in car parks and along the roadside. We even had rubbish dumped overnight at the Ocean Grove main beach adjacent to the surf club. We have reported these activities to the police in an endeavour to catch the perpetrators. Apart from the obvious desecration of the coastal environment, our staff are diverted from their natural resource management tasks to clean up the mess. On one occasion the dumped rubbish contained asbestos which required our engagement of specialist contractors to safely remove. I encourage you to contact me to discuss any issues related to coastal management in our region by phoning me on 5254 1118. Bob Jordan general manager

Monumental move for cenotaph BY TIFFANY PILCHER THE Ocean Grove Cenotaph is officially on the move after a government funding announcement made last Monday pledged $10,000 to assist with the construction of a new monument in a new location. The announcement was made by the State Minister of Veterans Affairs Hugh Delahunty at the Ocean Grove Community Centre and he was joined by representatives from the Ocean Grove Barwon Heads RSL and the City of Greater Geelong. The current cenotaph is more than 60 years old and currently stands in the Ocean Grove Memorial Triangle and RSL president Keith Hankin said it poses a threat to motorists and pedestrians in the area. â€œDuring memorial services it causes all sorts of traffic and safety problems and delivery trucks are knocking over the bollards that surround it on
almost a daily basis. â€œAt one point 16 bollards were knocked over in one day â€“ itâ€™s definitely a hazard.â€? The RSL has been trying to relocate the cenotaph for several years and considered six new locations before ultimately deciding on Ocean Grove Park. â€œThe park is used for a number of other functions and we took that into full consideration when planning the move,â€? Mr Hankin said. â€œThe site was chosen for its location, ease of access and its ability to hold more people during memorial services. â€œIt will be a more attractive and appropriate site and structure, there is more parking available and more room for people to take part in services.â€? Mr Hankin said the RSL is hoping the relocation will be complete in time for the new cenotaph to be used during Remembrance Day services in November.

Adult learners spring into technology BY TIFFANY PILCHER SPRINGDALE Neighbourhood Centre is leaping headfirst into the future of flexible adult learning thanks to a $50,000 grant announced at the Drysdale centre on Monday. The funding boost will give SpringDale the ability SpringDale committee president Debra Winter and to extend the reach of its adult learning programs coordinator Anne Brackley accept the certificate through eParticipation, an online system that delivers acknowledging the centreâ€™s funding grant from lessons to people who are unable to physically attend. Eastern Victorian MP Peter Hall at the Drysdale centre SpringDale coordinator Anne Brackley said the on Monday.
funding and subsequent development of the new system will enable people of all ages, backgrounds and levels of education to build their skills and broaden their career and personal prospects. â€œWe are hoping it will allow us to podcast our courses and give people access to the lessons outside of operating hours. â€œIf we can do that we can dramatically increase our scope and the number of people we can assist.â€? The announcement was made by Minister for Higher Education and Skills Peter Hall who revealed
a total of $173,840 in adult, community and further learning grants for the Geelong area on the day. â€œThese programs are great examples of how Geelong centres are extending the reach of their programs to members of the community who need them most,â€? Mr Hall said. â€œBy supporting training that connects people to work, this is also a valuable investment in Victoriaâ€™s economy.â€? Ms Brackley said she is hoping the new system will be fully functional by the end of the year.

THE children’s Splash Park in the Bellarine Aquatic and Sports Centre has been reopened. The dedicated children’s area was closed for a week while upgrades were made to the centre’s aquaplay equipment and infrastructure. Beangala ward councillor Jan Farrell said children would find the new water slide an exciting addition. “A stand out feature of the upgrade is the extra slide which has been attached to the aquaplay structure,” said Cr Farrell. “Now the children will have two slides to play on.” Cr Farrell said several structural upgrades were also completed. “New entrance stair rails, bottom bollards and landing mats were installed to support changes to the aquaplay structure,” said Cr Farrell. “Pool equipment was also replaced and repaired where required.” “The Bellarine Aquatic and Sports Centre is certainly a valuable part of council’s recreational offering on the Bellarine.” The Bellarine Sports and Aquatic Centre is set to undergo additional upgrades later this year. Council has budgeted $30,000 to add more water play features.
Xavier Norman, Kye Annard and Charlie Every give the thumbs up to the upgraded Splash Park at the Bellarine Aquatic and Sports Centre in Ocean Grove.
Nature reserve to be preserved in print BY TIFFANY PILCHER THE rich history of the Ocean Grove Nature Reserve will soon be recorded and published for future generations to enjoy thanks to a grant announced on Wednesday. The Friends of Ocean Grove Nature Reserve group received the $2,500 state government grant and will use it to collate the 50 year history of the park in collaboration with the Bellarine Historical Society and publish 500 copies of the book.
Friends of Ocean Grove Nature Reserve president Fiona Topolcsanyi said the book will help more people understand the importance of the park. “If more people know its history and significance, they are more likely to want to care for it. “The park has some of the last native woodland and grasstree areas on the Bellarine so it’s very important to protect and we feel this book will help educate more people about that. “We’re excited to have the chance to publish the book and it will be in local libraries, schools and

Public courts out of bounds BY TIFFANY PILCHER TO THE bafflement of Ocean Grove residents, the recently completed community netball courts at Shell Road Reserve are currently off-limits to the public. The courts are part of the $6 million development at the reserve, $2 million of which has come from public funding through the City of Greater Geelong (COGG). The Ocean Grove Netball Club and Surfside
Waves Soccer Club have access to the courts for training sessions and scheduled games, but outside of those times the courts are padlocked. COGG manager for projects, recreation and central Geelong Dean Frost said the closure of the netball courts is temporary. â€œWe have locked the netball courts as a temporary measure for the next couple of months to protect the surface from potential damage,â€? Mr Frost said. â€œIt is only a short term measure as council works with the community and local clubs to ensure the
courts are only used for ball sports.â€? â€œWe want to provide a high quality facility for everyone to enjoy. â€œThe tenant netball club and local soccer club have keys to the courts to enable formal sport to be played.â€? Mr Frost did not provide a time frame for when the courts will be open for public use. IN OTHER news at Shell Road Reserve, Beangala ward representative Jan Farrell said the much-needed temporary change rooms for the
netball and soccer teams should soon be complete after setbacks in the delivery of the new facilities. â€œThere have been delays getting the tradespeople in, the first change room is expected to be delivered and completed within the month and the second is to be completed a month after that.â€? Cr Farrell said the soccer and netball club members are currently using portable change facilities in the interim. See Letters â€œNetball courts â€“ private or public?â€? page 20.
Port pioneers new technology BY TIFFANY PILCHER PORTARLINGTON broke new ground on the Bellarine last week with the installation of public wifi and CCTV cameras in the town centre. Installation of four new CCTV stations and wifi systems began on Newcombe Street between Harding Street and Brown Street on Monday and they are expected to be fully functional by the end of the month. Coryule ward councillor Lindsay Ellis said the new technology is the first of its kind on the Bellarine and will bring widespread benefits to Portarlington residents and visitors. â€œIt will be great to see people sitting on the street enjoying a coffee and being able to use wifi on their portable devices, I expect it will attract more people
to the area. â€œThe CCTV will also be a benefit to the community, we had a spate of incidents recently involving vandalism and graffiti and this is expected to assist in the prevention of similar incidents.â€? The CCTV cameras will be linked to the police station and footage will be recorded but not monitored and footage will only be reviewed if an incident occurs. â€œThere are already four or five CCTV cameras operating in the area and this is just expanding on that a little more to help better protect the area,â€? Cr Ellis said. The works have been funded by Cr Ellis through council allocated discretionary funds at a cost of $20,000 and also include an upgrade of the street lights and beautification measures in the area.
Grade 4, 5 and 6 pupils at Portarlington Primary school are getting ready to rock at their upcoming school concert on July 31. The concert theme is Time to Rock and the pupils are busy rehearsing dance moves set to a range of rock songs. Lead characters will bring the whole performance together by creating links between each performance. Performing arts teacher Corinne Bentley said the studentâ€™s enthusiasm is amazing and the whole school is abuzz with excitement. Community members are invited to catch a sneak peek at the full dress rehearsal at Parks Hall, Portarlington at 1.30pm on the same day as the performance.

Funds to showcase tourism drawcards BY JAMES TAYLOR POPULAR events in the Bellarine and the Surf Coast have received a combined $19,000 in funding from Tourism Victoria. Last week, the state government announced it would support marketing for five events in the Country Victoria Events Program to help grow regional tourism. The funding comprises $3,500 to Toast to the Coast, $5,000 to the Lorne Sculpture Biennale, $3,500 for the Surf Coast Century and Salomon Trail Run, $3,000 to the Lorne Festival of Performing Arts, $3,000 for Extravaganza 2013 and $1,000 to the Bluestone Blues Festival. Polwarth MP Terry Mulder said the Lorne Sculpture Biennale – which will run from March 8-30, 2014 – was Victoria’s largest free to public outdoor sculpture festival, showcasing Australia’s top sculptures at various sites along the Great Ocean Road. “The Lorne Festival of Performing Arts (September 6-8) has played a key role in attracting
visitors and increasing nights of stay and ongoing media coverage in the off-season. “The Surf Coast Century is a Rapid Ascent event that will be held in conjunction with Salomon Trail race four in Anglesea from September 21-22. “The Bluestone Blues Festival (December 31-January 14) has a proud history of attracting a diverse mix of blues enthusiasts, music lovers and local community members to two-days of top quality blues acts in a relaxed family atmosphere.” Toast to the Coast, to be held from November 2-3, will celebrate its 12th year at 16 host wineries and another 30 wineries across the Geelong region. South Barwon MP Andrew Katos said the 2012 food and wine festival attracted 15,000 visitors, with more than a quarter of those travelling from Melbourne. “In 2013, the program is set to be bigger and better with an expanded Great Geelong Wine Pour program featuring both local and Melbourne restaurants that will offer Geelong wines during the festival.” Extravaganza will be held at Cunningham Pier, Geelong from July 13-14.

Council pushes parking rethink at Grovedale station BY JAMES TAYLOR THE City of Greater Geelong (COGG) is still lobbying state government MPs for better parking at the Grovedale railway station, insisting the planned number will be “totally inadequate” from the station’s first day of operation. The station, to be built north of the railway line between Sugargum and Rossack drives in Waurn Ponds, is planned to have 200 car parks when it opens late next year. COGG has been urging more car parks since at least October of last year, and unanimously passed
S RE E R ITU C 2 A URN F F O
Cr Andy Richards’ notice of motion last month for the station to have at least 400 car parks and the provision of bus services to and from the station from day one. The council also resolved to write to the leaders of the state government and opposition, South Barwon MP Andrew Katos, and all five Members for Western Victoria in the upper house. Cr Richards suggested either 400 car parks on the northern side, or car parks on the southern side with infrastructure to allow people to cross, as well as bus services to keep traffic levels down. He said there would only be ample parking
when the station was fully finished. “The initial parking provision is totally inadequate and will result in Waurn Ponds streets becoming clogged with traffic. “Residents will have trouble getting out of their driveway and down their streets.” He said the 400 car parks at Marshall Station were full well before the end of peak travel time each morning, with commuters parking outside the marked bays and in surrounding streets. “Given the wide nature of Marshalltown Road, and the narrow nature of the suburban streets around the new Waurn Ponds station, the
w w w.tthe ebigsh hed d.ccom..au
problem of parking in suburban streets will be far worse.” In other Armstrong Creek news, the town centre precinct structure plan (PSP) for the growth area has opened for public comment. Cr Rod Macdonald said the PSP allocates land for a library, an indoor sports stadium, an indoor aquatic centre, a cultural and arts space, community meeting spaces, youth facilities, maternal and child health services, day care facilities, and kindergarten facilities. The PSP also formally sets aside land for a future rail line from Geelong to Torquay.

Build the brand to steer the city BY JAMES TAYLOR
Portarlington kicked up its heels over the weekend for the National Celtic Festival featuring lively Irish, Scottish and Canadian headliners, The Outside Track (pictured). Huge numbers flocked to witness the reunion of Aussie folk favourites The Ploughboys, and The Voice contestant Imogen Brough belted out a stunning set on Saturday night. Traditional dance and singing workshops were a big hit with the young and the young at heart at venues all over town. The winter sun broke through the clouds giving the large crowds even more to smile about and the festival didn’t run out of steam throughout the entire four-day event. Plenty of enthusiastic revellers made sure they enjoyed every last minute until the official farewell session at The Ol’ Duke on Monday afternoon. Watch out for full coverage of the craic-ing event in next week’s editions of the Surf Coast Times and Bellarine Times. Photo: MICHAEL CHAMBERS
A BETTER “brand” for Geelong and support for entrepreneurs were among the solutions suggested at last week’s forum to develop a long term jobs vision for the region. The Skilling the Bay project is trying to secure the future of work in Geelong, and is holding community consultations throughout May and June. Last week’s community forum at The Gordon was opened by Skilling the Bay chairman and Gordon chief officer Grant Sutherland, who said the project started 18 months ago and was not a reaction to Ford announcing it would close its Geelong plant. He said he had personally been in discussions about a strategic vision for Geelong since 2007. Geelong mayor Keith Fagg, one of the three panel members at the forum, said the region’s resilience was a source of great strength. “Geelong has an economy with many strings to its bow - we are not a post-manufacturing economy.” Responding to a question asking what Geelong’s brand was, panel member Nick Papps said the city needed to work out its points of difference. “We have to really think about how we sell this great place to the world. What’s the theme for Geelong?” A discussion paper released by Skilling the Bay reveals the city will lose about 15,000 direct and indirect manufacturing jobs this year, the service-based economy continues to grow, and the number of workers older than 65 is expected to nearly double to 20 per cent in 20 years. Geelong’s education levels are below the Victorian benchmark for high school and bachelor degrees, and the number of degrees is also below the state average. Key issues raised by the forum’s 90 attendees included retraining existing employees, state and federal government support for new industries, providing incentives to small and medium enterprises, and raising student aspiration.

Aireys Inlet would have ball with oval BY JAMES TAYLOR THE campaign for a full-sized oval for Aireys Inlet has made some progress, with the Surf Coast Shire earmarking $20,000 in its draft budget for a feasibility study. Residents have been lobbying for decades to have an oval built in the town, and a petition with 557 signatures was officially noted at the council’s meeting in Aireys Inlet two weeks ago. Surf Coast Shire has been looking to build better recreation infrastructure in Aireys Inlet since 2008, and has twice unsuccessfully negotiated with “a prominent land owner” to acquire its preferred site off Bambra Road in the Painkalac Valley. Aireys Eels junior football club president David Jones – who lodged the petition on April 9 – said substantial population growth and the increase in holiday rentals in recent years had put everincreasing pressure on the town’s existing public open space, which had been unable to keep pace with the rapid growth. “A new, much needed public open space would cater to many aspects of the community – junior football, soccer, cricket, athletics, walking trails, improved access to our river precinct and a wetland area to double as a stormwater filter. “It would also create an accessible safe place in the event of any future natural disasters, in particular a wildfire event.” The shire’s report on the petition recommended

providing $20,000 in the 2013/14 draft budget for a feasibility study to assess the most suitable site for an active sports ground and associated infrastructure, which is estimated to cost more than $1 million to acquire and develop. Cr Eve Fisher commended the Aireys Inlet
community for getting involved and submitting the petition. “There’s been a lot of work on this.” Once the budget is approved, officers will prepare a brief for the site suitability study and report back to council.
Burn off badly, get fined BY JAMES TAYLOR HOMEOWNERS, farmers and businesses have been warned they will be fined if they break the strong restrictions and regulations regarding burning off. Fines start at $1,400 for individuals and more than $5,800 for a company, and penalties of up to $280,000 are possible if the matter goes before the courts. Environment Protection Authority (EPA) Victoria environmental director Chris Webb said the regulator and municipal councils took the burning of industrial waste very seriously, considering its impact on human health and the environment. “Burning of industrial waste is a contravention of the Environment Protection Act (1970), which will attract regulatory action. “Companies planning large scale burn offs are required to provide a plan to EPA for approval and check local council restrictions – failure to do so could attract fines. Industrial waste must be disposed of to landfill.” He said householders needed to be aware of the rules because they would attract fines if they were found to be burning inappropriate incombustible items. “Burn offs should only be conducted under appropriate weather conditions, fuel must be in a burnable state, such as cured and not green, and the pile free of incombustible material including earth, to prevent slow smouldering fires.” He said landowners could consider alternatives to burning off, including the options of disposal or recycling at landfill and transfer stations. Burn offs, more common in the colder months, are a common source of localised air pollution – which can look like smog.

Council mulls closing Lorne road BY JAMES TAYLOR SURF Coast Shire plans to permanently close one end of Smith Street in Lorne to vehicles due to complaints about dust from a nearby apartment complex. Councillors debated a motion at their May meeting to issue a public notice about the shire’s intention to close the section of unsealed road – between Grove Road to the south and Otway Street to the north – and have invited submissions from the community. In October last year, several residents of the Lorne Chalet Apartments wrote to the council, saying traffic on the road was creating a dust nuisance.
Traffic levels along the section average 82 vehicles a day, which drops to 32 vehicles a day in the off-season. The shire has the authority to close roads subject to consideration by VicRoads – which has not opposed the closure – and consideration of public comments. Closing the road, including public advertisements, the supply and construction of signs and bollards, and construction of a turning circle, is expected to cost less than $15,000. The police, state emergency service and country fire authority have stations on Smith Street, and Lorne councillor Clive Goldsworthy asked if letters of authorisation were needed from the emergency services before the road could be closed, as it could
No passengers yet for GeelongBallarat trains BY JAMES TAYLOR A FEASIBILITY study has found train services between Geelong, Ballarat and Bendigo are not viable due to high costs, but more buses have been suggested to link the three growing regional centres. Last week, the state government released the Public Transport Victoria (PTV) study into returning passenger services between Geelong and Ballarat (via Meredith) and Ballarat and Bendigo (via Newstead). PTV investigated what would be required to return passenger trains on the 244 kilometres of lines including assessing track and station conditions, preparing patronage forecasts and preliminary service plans. Transport Minister Terry Mulder said the cost of returning passenger trains on the complete crosscountry route was high. “Between the 2006 and 2011 censuses, Greater Geelong’s local government area grew by more than 14,000, the Ballarat urban centre grew by more than 7,000, Bendigo’s urban centre by more than 6,000 and Castlemaine by almost 2,000 residents. This area has a total population above 400,000. The report acknowledged that current V/Line coach schedules could better serve communities between Geelong, Ballarat and Castlemaine. The Coalition government will carefully consider the report’s findings. Trains may become viable in future years.” Mr Mulder said was pleased the report found that with additional track maintenance, the GheringhapBallarat freight line north of Geelong would be suitable for passenger trains operating at a maximum speed of 130 kilometres per hour. However, he said the Maryborough-Castlemaine section would require complete reconstruction before trains could operate safely at 100 kilometres per hour on straight sections. V/Line runs services on the Ballarat-Maryborough and Castlemaine-Bendigo sections of the proposed route, and Mr Mulder said the existing rail reservation on the inoperable section between Maryborough and Maldon Junction would be kept in place.
affect fire response times. In response, shire director of infrastructure Sunil Bhalla said the council had received a letter of support from the CFA’s regional office. “If resolved, we would send letters to all affected parties, and they could raise their concerns. Provisions have been made for the CFA to gain access to the closed section, if needed. A temporary closure would go through the same process.” He said sealing the road was an option, but the council would have to assess who would benefit and thus pay for the works through a special charge scheme. Crs Heather Wellington and Brian McKiterick voted against the motion, which was carried seven votes to two.
This unsealed section of Smith Street (looking north from Grove Road) may be closed.

WORK is progressing on a $670,000 project to create a link for pedestrians between Aireys Inlet and Fairhaven. When finished, the two metre wide path will eventually allow cyclists and walkers to travel safely between the two coastal towns and largely avoid the Great Ocean Road. It includes an exposed aggregate pathway running from the bus stop near Bambra Road in Aireys Inlet to the bottom shops near Painkalac Creek. The car park at the bottom shops has also been sealed. Work started at the end of September on the link section between the shops and Painkalac Creek,
where a hardwood timber bridge is nearly finished and the path will continue to run up to Lialeeta Road in Fairhaven. The Fairhaven bus shelter will also be upgraded and landscaping work will be completed around the bottom shops, using Indigenous vegetation. When the project was announced, Cr Libby Coker said the path would allow people to ride or walk safely to the bottom shops without crossing the Great Ocean Road, and for families to walk from Fairhaven to the Aireys Inlet school with only one road crossing. It is being constructed through $276,200 in funding from VicRoads and $400,000 from the Surf Coast Shire, earmarked in its 2012/13 capital works program.

news 13 Funds for Apollo Bay dredging Tuesday 11 June 2013
BY JAMES TAYLOR MORE than $3 million will be spent to improve dredging of Apollo Bay’s harbour. Last week, Minister for Ports David Hodgett visited the harbour to announce a new dredge and support boat would be built to replace the existing dredge. The existing dredge, the Gannet, has been in operation since 1950, having previously served in World War I as an ammunitions barge out of Sydney Harbour. Records are sketchy on when the vessel was constructed, but it was likely built at Gardiner Island in Sydney. Its riveted hull construction suggests that it was possibly built around the time of the Titanic. Design work on the new dredge and support boat will take about three months to complete, with construction taking about nine months. Marine engineering group Birdon has a $2.3 million contract for design and construction of the dredge, while Crib Point Engineering has received
BIG BRANDS LOCAL SHOPPING FREE PARKING
$720,000 for design and construction of the supporting work boat. The new dredge will offer modern features such as kelp cutters, emergency shut-off valves, and equipment for measuring and recording production output. Shire mayor Lyn Russell thanked the state government for its investment. “The Apollo Bay harbour is one of only three safe blue water havens in Victoria west of Port Phillip Bay. “It is an important base for our fishing industry and council believes it is a priority to maintain and build on its status as a working port.” Mr Hodgett said the port supported an annual tourism industry that drew 15,000 visitors and $43 million for the town. “Apollo Bay is truly one of the jewels in our coastal crown and a much-loved destination for recreational boaters. “It is also home to a local commercial fishing fleet which generates an annual catch worth $8-$10 million – mostly consisting of abalone and crayfish.”

Access EFTPOS with Bendigo Bank BY TIFFANY PILCHER TORQUAY Bendigo Bank has found a way to make life easier for schools, service clubs, sporting clubs and local groups with their new Community EFTPOS terminal. The main function of the terminal is to streamline payments during fundraisers, charity events and registration days as it is designed to be a fast, low cost solution for groups to accept real time card payments on the day of their event. This will allow groups to have the opportunity to
raise more money and save time by collecting large payments or payments from those who don’t have cash immediately. The Community EFTPOS facility is available for hire to any community group on a short term basis and the only requirement is that the group needs to open a Bendigo Bank account for the funds to be credited into. Bendigo bank spokesperson Kerry Willian said the bank wishes to encourage community groups to call into or contact the branch to discuss how they can assist with this exciting addition to their product range.
“The introduction of this service has been in response to a clear need from community organisations in Torquay, Jan Juc and Bellbrae. “This will suit those community organisations that do not have the need or wish to pay fees for an EFTPOS terminal all year round. “Bendigo Bank Torquay is really excited to have such a community minded service to offer the local hard working community groups.” If your community group is interested in using Community EFTPOS, please call in to the Bendigo Bank Torquay branch or call 5261 7313.
Oishi-m growing a little for kids BY ALI DEANE
Local entrepreneurs (L-R) Miyo Fallshaw and Fiona McPherson are behind Oishi-m – the cutest, most quirky and colourful kidswear – perfect for newborns to six-year-olds.
THE humble beginnings of colourful and quirky Torquay children’s wear label Oishi-m is similar to the stories of the beginnings of the original Surf Coast brands of the late 60s and 70s that have since gone global. Oishi-m was created by Torquay mums Fiona McPherson and Miyo Fallshaw, two local entrepreneurs who designed and cut garments on the dining room table. Since opening their first store last August in Gilbert Street, the pair have already had to extend, to increase capacity. Oishi-m is known for little nappy wearing jeans, and since opening the retail store, they have also diversified to include other cult brands such as Nike, Onitsuka Tiger and local brand Patagonia into their product mix. “We’re stoked to have a store that’s like no other in Australia or even the world, in our backyard,” Miyo said. Check out their revamped store at 2/19 Gilbert Street, Torquay 5261 6738 or oishi-m.com.

The Angels reincarnated BY TIFFANY PILCHER EVEN though they’ve been dogged by tensions and numerous lineup changes over the past 40 years and more recently, serious illness, nothing has ever been able to stop classic Australian rockers The Angels from hitting the road. They’re heading to Geelong for their Greatest Hits tour this weekend and despite lead vocalist Doc Neeson recently being diagnosed with a brain tumour and the death of former bassist Chris Bailey, founder and guitarist John Brewster said their show is better than ever. “It’s terribly sad, I miss Chris but life has to go on and he wanted that. We’re reinspired now and back at the top of our game – this is probably the best we’ve been since Face to Face days.” Screaming Jets frontman Dave Gleeson has taken over on vocals and Brewster’s son Sam is now on bass. “Chris gave Sam his blessing and I can’t think of anyone who could have stepped into Doc Neeson’s shoes except Dave,” Brewster said. Tickets are available by calling 5225 1200 or online at gpac.org.au.

Watch for the wonder of winter whales BY JAMES TAYLOR CONSERVATIONISTS, film-makers and ecowarriors were invited to Apollo Bay on Saturday for a wondrous day of whales. Cape Otway Lightstation organised The Wonder of Whales event at the Mechanicsâ€™ Hall to promote the whalesâ€™ seasonal return and the tourist attractionâ€™s new whale-watching platform. Crew from Sea Shepherdâ€™s vessel Steve Irwin, one of four ships engaged in the Target Zero campaign in Antarctica during summer, screened a film about their work and spoke about what they described as their most successful direct action campaign, which they say saved 932 whales from Japanese harpoons. The Peter Kirkhouse film Southern Ocean Dreaming, a collection of images set to tracks by local musicians, was also shown. The film is a journey through the country of western district Aboriginal clans the Gadabanut, Kirrae Whurrong and Peek Whurrong, and showcases the regionâ€™s coastal beauty, surfers, dolphins and whales. Environmental artist Peter Day ran free activities for children and families and there were also educational displays from the Department of Environment and Primary Industries. Lightstation manager Paul Thompson said the first Wonder of Whales event, held at the Lightstation last year, was a popular success with people who enjoyed the tourist attractionâ€™s whale sculptures and were fascinated by hearing the stories

Whales were also sighted at Aireys Inlet and Jan Juc last week.

Roadside weed blame game over BY DEAN WEBSTER THE state government has moved to end confusion over who has responsibility for controlling weeds and pest animals on local roadsides. Agriculture and Food Security Minister Peter Walsh said the government has introduced legislation into Parliament to amend the Catchment and Land Protection Act to make it clear that road managers are responsible for roadside weed and pest control. “Roadsides provide a ready means for invasive plants and rabbits to spread throughout Victoria and impact on the environment, and on our food and fibre production,” Mr Walsh said. “Efforts to control roadside weeds and pests have been hampered by years of confusion among local councils and private landowners about who is responsible for control works on roadsides. “These amendments to the Catchment and Land Protection Act remove all confusion by making it clear that local councils are responsible for developing roadside weed and pest control plans which, as road managers, they will also be required to implement.” Surf Coast Shire mayor Libby Coker said while the
legislative change will significantly increase the job rural councils have in terms of pest plant and animal control, it also makes partnerships and collaboration between all land managers – private, government agencies and councils – more important in dealing with pest plants and animals. “This council is ahead of the game in responding to this important issue. “Surf Coast Shire has allocated an additional $200,000 for pest plant and animal control on councilmanaged land in its draft 2013/14 budget, which will assist us in meeting these requirements and conducting further activities in council-managed reserves.” The state government announced a funding program last year that will provide $2.6 million per annum, over three years, for roadside weed and pest control. Department of Environment and Primary Industries bio-security operations manager Brett Harrison said that significant roadside vegetation needs to be protected. “It is important for the community and all levels of government to control invasive plants and animals across the landscape which road reserves are an important part,” he said.

Lorneâ€™s Tuesday bus volunteers nominated LORNE Community Hospitalâ€™s Tuesday bus volunteer team were recently nominated for the minister for healthâ€™s Volunteer Awards. The awards celebrate the outstanding volunteers working in Victorian healthcare. Finalists are selected from the nominees to receive the awards. Minister for Health David Davis said the calibre of nominees was very high and the achievements and outcomes that they bring about for patients, their organisation and the community are exceptional. The Tuesday bus team supports and works with the local community members to transport them to a range of appointments and activities that support their health and wellbeing and maintain their independence. Clients are collected from their homes, accompanied to the bus, driven to their appointments, collected, returned home and taken to their front door. They are emotionally and physically supported. Over 500 client trips were provided last year and this year numbers are growing steadily.
â€œWithout this bus we would see our aging community become more isolated, unable to attend their appointments or not having any transport to get around Lorne, which is especially difficult with the steep terrain and winding roads,â€? volunteer coordinator Joy Dwyer said. One local client said the bus service â€œis the best thing that has happened in Lorne in yearsâ€?. The Tuesday bus team volunteers â€“ Mark Shepherd, Leo Dwyer, Virginia and Ian Denton and Ian Locke â€“ are residents from Lorne and Aireys Inlet. More volunteers are required to support this service. People interested in volunteering at the Lorne Community Hospital can make an enquiry with Joy Dwyer on 5289 4300 or jdwyer.lorne@ swarh.vic.gov.au. There are a wide variety of options available for volunteers. The Tuesday Bus team volunteers (L-R) Mark Shepherd, Leo Dwyer and Virginia and Ian Denton. Ian Locke is absent.
Bring sunshine this winter to those with blood cancer BY ALI DEANE EVERY 46 minutes someone in Australia is diagnosed with blood cancer and finding a sunny side to life can be very hard. This month you can help bring sunshine to people with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders by joining the Leukaemia Foundationâ€™s new Sunflower Club. Even on a cloudy day, a sunflower turns to catch the smallest glimpse of sunshine, and this is what provided inspiration for the month-long campaign. Money raised will help the Foundation continue to provide free services including education, emotional support and accommodation for regional people required to uproot and relocate to a city for treatment. Diagnosis for some people can mean relocating to a city to begin treatment within 24 hours, costly medical bills and many need to leave work. â€œA blood cancer diagnosis impacts the whole family and can change lives forever,â€? Stephanie Hechenberger, Leukemia Foundation general manager Victoria and Tasmania, said. â€œWhen blood cancer disrupts life for a regional family, we can give them a warm and welcoming place to call home near a city hospital â€“ free of charge. â€œWe also provide free transport to and from hospital, as well as personalised support and education, telephone and online forums support to help them navigate this upsetting time.â€? There are many ways to join the Sunflower Club and bring sunshine this winter, including

Currently there are 50,000 Australians living with blood cancer and 11,500 are expected to be diagnosed this year. Although survival rates are improving, blood cancers are the second highest cause of cancer death in Australia â€“ higher than better known cancers like breast cancer and melanoma.

VICTORIAN men are being urged to commit to some lifestyle changes on the back of Menâ€™s Health Week last week to cut their cancer risk. They are also being asked to screen for bowel cancer and keep an eye out for any changing spots that could be skin cancer. Director of Cancer Council Victoriaâ€™s prevention division Craig Sinclair said statistics showed men were more likely to be diagnosed and die from cancer in Victoria. â€œOne in three cancers are lifestyle related and therefore, preventable,â€? Mr Sinclair said. â€œWeâ€™re asking blokes to think about how their lifestyle is affecting their health and go see their doctor to discuss what screening is appropriate for them.â€? Men are encouraged to go to cutyourcancerrisk.org.au. Mr Sinclair said a simple at home bowel screening test called a faecal occult blood test was one of the best ways to find the signs of bowel cancer in its early stages for men aged 50 and older. â€œIn its early stages, bowel cancer often has no visible symptoms â€“ it means many seemingly healthy men across Victoria could have bowel cancer and not know it,â€? Mr Sinclair said. â€œItâ€™s our second biggest cancer killer yet 90

per cent of cases could be cured if found early enough. Thatâ€™s why itâ€™s so important to screen for bowel cancer.â€? In Victoria in 2010, 2,075 men were diagnosed with bowel cancer and 734 men died. Melanoma is the fourth most common cancer in Victorian men â€“ behind prostate, bowel and lung. This is particularly tragic given skin cancer is one of our most preventable cancers. Over 95 per cent of skin cancers can be successfully treated if found early. However if left untreated, skin cancer can be fatal. â€œWe also encourage men to make time to speak to a health professional, especially when it comes to prostate cancer,â€? Mr Sinclair said. He said men should discuss with their GP whether a prostate specific antigen (PSA) test is right for them before going ahead with it. A PSA test looks for changes in hormone (protein) levels in the blood which may indicate changes in the prostate. However, changes in the hormone level do not necessarily indicate cancer. â€œThere are pros and cons to getting a PSA test and men should seek medical advice before making any decisions, especially if they have a family history of cancer,â€? Mr Sinclair said.

Thanks for printing my letter (“Puzzled by budget comments”, Letters, May 28) about the Shell Road Sports Precinct in Ocean Grove. I have spent hours doing a bit of research and thank goodness for Google because none of the sporting clubs involved would return my calls. It seems to me that the project is in a huge mess; from public opinion, the football and the cricket club don’t want to move, the netball club have joined the soccer club and neither have any facilities, now with no money in the state budget what happens next? I hear there are shared facilities coming, then I find out that at training the change rooms of those shared facilities are out of bounds for male soccer players. The under 13 boys’ soccer players, who play on Saturdays, are also forbidden to use them on game days. How on earth are these possibly shared facilities? Furthermore, the soccer club based in St Leonards have just had brand new change rooms and a referees’ room built by the City of Greater Geelong with surplus funds, when they already have existing change rooms and a referees’ room. The soccer club based in Grovedale has just had built modest clubrooms with change rooms for a fraction of the Shell Road project cost. My suggestion is to allow football and cricket to stay where they want to stay and build something more modest for the netballers and soccer club to share. They appear to have a lot in common, majority teams are juniors. Is it me, or does this situation need to be looked at again as a matter of urgency? I would appreciate a comment or two from the local council on this one. Jan Dolan Marcus Hill

The new netball courts at Shell Road Reserve in Ocean Grove are looking splendid. But are they for public or private use? Several times I have been there with my daughters to practice netball, and every time, the courts are padlocked. When I enquired at the council, I was told that they are to be kept locked whilst they are still a “novelty” so that children won’t skateboard on the new surfaces. Are these public netball courts or private courts for use by the netball club only? The council has spent a great deal of public money on these if they are for private use only.

Tyred of parking Dear Editor, A Surf Coast Council traffic infringement officer has been outside Bellbrae Primary School recently notifying parents the council will start giving tickets to parents whose car tyres are parked over the solid white line at the side of School Road. I would like to express my concern and dismay at this suggestion. I support road safety, and as a parent of two students I understand the dangerous situation faced on School Road everyday at drop-off/collection times. I think most Bellbrae parents support the assertion that it is a dangerous stretch of road and

Kids’ choir hits the right notes BY TIFFANY PILCHER
Member for South Barwon District
we all need to take safety measures seriously. But fining parents who struggle to find a place to park, and who then face a mud slide, rocks, and a large guttered road edge if they do manage to park on the edge of road on the side of the road opposite the school grounds is not a solution. I have seen children slide down into the mud, skinning their legs and arms when they attempt to get in and out of their cars when parents successfully park in the gutter, and cars get bogged and scraped along their underside when trying to drive out. The parking situation at Bellbrae Primary School is dangerous and needs urgent council attention to address it adequately. The school has grown from 30 students to over 300 students and the parking and road infrastructure has not expanded to cope with this daily reality. Council action on the road and parking issues is a matter of urgency that would have widespread support. Fining parents and overlooking the root cause of the parking concerns would only exacerbate growing frustrations. Extending the school bus routes to include Torquay would also assist in easing the parking congestion. What are the council plans to address the problem, other than fining parents on the school run?
THE new Torquay Salvation Army Coastal Sound Youth and Children’s Choir is singing up a storm as the members have fun making new friends and learning correct singing techniques. Choir members are currently learning pop and gospel choir songs as they get to know each other and next term will begin preparations for a special Christmas performance. Choir leader Amy Laposa was born in Geelong and is a professional recording artist. She has performed all over Australia and recently shared the stage with pop star and 2009 Australian Idol winner Stan Walker. Spokesperson Justine Lengyel said Torquay Salvation Army is thrilled to have Ms Laposa on board to teach the program. “Amy is an accomplished recording artist and she has the most amazing voice. “She has three children of her own, she’s great with the kids and we are very lucky that she has joined us here for the program.” “The choir is a great way for the children to build their confidence and find new friendships. “They all love it and are still talking about it long after they go home.”
Ms Laposa has settled back into the Geelong region to offer local children what she said are some of the most amazing gifts she’s ever received, – confidence, passion, community, friendship, fun and a positive creative outlet. She said she thoroughly enjoys being able to offer the children in a chance to properly learn how to sing without an overwhelming
price tag attached. “The main plus for the kids is that they are having great singing techniques and skills taught to them at an incredible rate.” Go online to salvos.org.au/torqua for more information on the program or email justine. firstname.lastname@example.org or to sign up, call 5261 5675.

A sliding window for all seasons When aluminium windows arrived on the scene around the middle of the last century, the last thing they could be called was elegant. Their skinny framing sections left a lot to be desired, they didn’t seal well, and the poor way they were glazed meant the glass was usually visibly distorted, creating ugly reﬂections not unlike the “hall of mirrors” effects seen in fun parlours. Over the years they have gradually improved to the point where they were at least acceptable, mostly because of their low maintenance. One product, however, remained an ugly duckling, and that was the sliding window. According to Murray Riccardi of Rylock Windows based in North Geelong, that started to change in 1983 when Rylock released its 630 Series Sliding Window which had framing sections 63mm deep, compared with others that were about half that. They were also fitted with key operated sash locks. “Over the last 30 years the product was redesigned and improved, and was still the benchmark in 2012. However, this year we introduced an all new Rylock Sliding Window, the Architectural Aluminium Horizontal Sliding Window or AA Slider for short,” Murray said. “This completely new window addresses common criticisms of sliding products, in particular that there was too much frame which prevented them achieving a high energy rating. Dust and debris also accumulated in the hard to clean track which also resulted in premature roller wear. “The first criticism was addressed by the sash frame being largely hidden within the window framing, resulting in more light and more landscape, and from an energy efficiency perspective, this means less window frame and improved thermal performance.
“Where other sliding windows allow dust and debris to accumulate in the sill, and provide a great place for flies and insects to go when they die, a stylish dust cover protects the track when the window is closed. “This cover also adds to security, by preventing the sash from being forced open by a would-be intruder. “Integral key locking is also a standard item, and the window can be securely locked in both a fully closed, and partly open position.” Murray said the window is now a viable option for most exposed areas where high winds and
wind driven rain could be a problem, and is also a good energy saver. “In the recent past, most people closed their windows and turned on their air conditioners in hot weather, but in these days of high energy costs, more homeowners are taking advantage of cross flow ventilation by leaving the windows open.” Murray said that there were more advantages of the new AA Sliding Window and a visit to their showroom and factory at 61 Morgan Street in North Geelong to view the product was a must for anyone planning a new home.

Op shop for a top bargain BY TIFFANY PILCHER ONE of Torquay’s biggest bargain hunting secret spots is ready to be revealed and they’ve got plenty of treats for eagle-eyed shoppers. The St Luke’s Anglican Church Op Shop is a little hidden away, set on the Pride Street side of the church on the corner of Price and Pride streets in Torquay, which makes it a treasure trove of winning finds that many others pass over. The shop is stacked full of men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, accessories, bric-abrac, furniture and even artwork and the friendly volunteers are always happy to help or have a chat with all customers. Volunteer Kaye Mackie said the shop has everything under the sun and shoppers should get in
quick as they regularly donate excess stock to those in need in the local area. “We like to look after the needy with food donations to Food Aid Torquay, monthly donations of clothes for Geelong Outreach as well as a generous annual donation to charity from the church. “The op shop has been here for more than 20 years and customers are always telling us that they love to rummage through and find some real gems. “It’s a very warm and friendly place, so everyone is welcome to pop in, say hello and find some really great buys while helping out those who need it most.” The St Luke’s Anglican Church Op Shop is open at the corner of Pride and Price streets, Torquay on Friday and Saturday mornings from 9am to 12pm.

Ash Grunwald says surfing and music are very close on his list of preferences. His love of waveriding is clear.
BY ALI DEANE SURF Coast’s adopted son Ash Grunwald has just embarked on an Australian tour, and will be touching down in Torquay this weekend with special guests. He has teamed up with long time friends, Aussie rock legends Scott Owen and Andy Strachan from The Living End and their show is expected to rock at the Torquay Hotel this Saturday night. Despite growing up on a diet of blues, Grunwald has been known to mix things up, jamming various collaborations for shows and albums throughout his musical career. He has shared a stage with Adelaide hip hop crew Funkoars, performs at all the biggest festivals, but is known mostly for his solo work as a blues and roots master. Grunwald’s solo sets at the Wool Exchange in Geelong and the St Kilda Festival back in February were hijacked by a new sound, when he put it to The Living End bassist Scotty Owen to jam.
The rest is history. “I’ve never genuinely spontaneously just clicked like that, and the heaviest stuff I was into when I was younger was Hendrix. “I just asked Scotty, it was sort of a spur of the moment thing. And it had never really occurred to me to play with Andy. Because then it would be like me, and The Living End. “Being a soloist, I do things like this. “The jam was amazing, it was so fun. It was huge, and then we went straight onto St Kilda Festival playing to well over 5,000 people, and we’d never done a rehearsal. “We were friends a long time before playing together, Scotty lives near me up near Byron Bay, but it’s just cool when things happen, and one thing flows to the next. “Certain types of music just go off live, and if you can do that, the genre doesn’t matter.” From there Grunwald asked if the guys wanted to join him on his national tour, recorded a promo song, then recorded the album Gargantuan the day
after that. “I was stoked. When we recorded we stayed up all night, then surfed Winki. It was insanely crowded, but we just wanted to be out there.” Grunwald even snapped his brother’s board. “I hate missing out on waves, but it keeps my stoke for music. “I’ll be bringing a board to Torquay for sure. I was there for five years and loved it, and I love coming back. “I froth on surfing, and being a frother, it makes me play better.” It’s not all about rocking out and riding waves for Grunwald who raises serious issues in his music. i i “I’m anti-coal seam gas mining. There’s never been a more important issue to face Australia. We recorded ‘The Last Stand’, it’s really rocky and heavy. I want everyday people to know about the issue and get onto it. The perfect people to pick to play it with

G R A P E V I N E Torquay Froth and Bubble returns BY ALI DEANE
BROUGHT TO YOU BY
The full Montepulciano WITH the colder weather comes a certain desire for rich, warming comfort foods and wines to match. It’s a no brainer that red wines in particular become our favourite buddies, most popular are those that are deeply coloured and richly flavoursome with soft rounded edges. Having found that my palate seems to be getting back into Italian wines at the moment, or maybe it’s just that more and more of these great value wines are finding their way to my door I’m not sure? Anyway, be it from up north in Piedmont, centred around Tuscany, D’Abruzzo, or down in the south around Puglia or Sicily/Sardinia I’m always interested and with a few new Montepulciano vintages having landed in my lap recently and a long Sunday family lunch booked, the rain was settling in and a bottle of Montepulciano sounded just perfect. Ah, “Montepulciano”, say it as you see it, “Monteh-pull-chi-ano” - sounds easy, yes? Now here’s the conundrum, yes Montepulciano is a grape, but it’s also a hill top town (commune) in Tuscany. Confusing? Of course, it’s Italy, what would one expect? No disrespect intended to any Italians reading, but the reality is that it can be confusing if you’re a novice fan of Italian reds so here’s today’s basic lesson on Montepulciano – the grape, and the town. The medieval hill top town of Montepulciano is located in the Italian province of Siena, south east of Florence in Tuscany. Popular for its pork and cheese, its wines are also famous worldwide and are known as “Vino Nobile di Montepulciano”. They are primarily made using a minimum of 70 per cent Sangiovese blended with other indigenous red grape varieties, including Canaiolo Nero and smaller amounts of Mammolo. They are generally
aged for two years in oak, with the “Riservas” spending three years in oak and the more youthful style of “Rosso di Montepulciano” only aged for one year in oak. Premium quality wines from this commune are much sort after by wine enthusiasts with the prices reflecting this demand. The grape known as Montepulciano is widely planted throughout central Italy and further south and is noted for producing deeply coloured wines, with moderate acidity and mild tannins. It ripens late and can produce high yields making for good value wines rather than styles at the super premium end of the quality spectrum. A producer located in the baronial fief of Valforte in the famous Abruzzo region of central Italy is Barone di Valforte. It has been owned by the Sorricchio family since the 14th century. They farm 500 hectares over various communes within the Teramo Hills region. They produce a wide range of red and white wines but their Montepulciano D’Abruzzo is the focus of this article, here’s the tasting notes.

OH GOODY – it’s seriously cold enough now to start on the wonderful slow cooked one pot wonders to keep us cosy, fortifying meals to brace against those biting winds. So apart from the usual repertoire of casseroles and pot roasts I’m having a spicy affair with the tagine. Nothing like a bit of the exotic to spice up your life and the flavours of Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia are just the ticket to take you away from the mundane routine of these short days and long cold nights. The tagine is a cooking pot made of heavy clay, with a simple clear glaze. Whilst there are decorated styles – these would be used purely for serving. My terracotta beauties are robust enough to use on the coals when camping, on the grill of the barbeque, or in the oven. The tagine is a two-part pot – the base is about four centimetres deep and is covered with a conical lid. The special shape of the lid means that all the condensation, the vapors produced during cooking trickle down into the ingredients – creating this most wonderful moist luscious infusion of the spices that make Moorish dishes so distinctive. Ras-el-hanout is a great starter for your journey into middleeastern cuisine. Readymade versions can be bought – but try your hand at making your own using Cath Claringbold’s version of one teaspoon ground bay leaf, a quarter teaspoon each of dried thyme, the ground spices of turmeric, nutmeg, cardamom, mace, aniseed, cloves and cinnamon, one
THE HATTED POT, THE POTTED HAT
teaspoon roasted cumin seed, ½ teaspoon ground ginger, cayenne and allspice. Combine all with a dash of salt and pepper. Usually when I cook with whole spices, I find that dry roasting them for a few moments in a small skillet until they “dance in the pan”, becoming aromatic, heightens their flavours in whatever I am cooking. A pestle and mortar are then used to crush the whole spices. Your kitchen will hum with the colour and momentum of the spice bazaar – especially if you have selected themed music to match the Moroccan mood! First use of what will become a long-standing affair with the tagine necessitates soaking both parts of the pot in water for 24 hours. Coat it inside and out with olive oil, place it in a cold oven and then set the thermostat to 100 Celcius. Leave the tagine in the oven 1.5 hours. When cooking with the tagine, it will withstand high heat but needs gentle coaxing – in other words do not subject it to extremes. Wash the tagine after use in warm soapy water – it won’t like the dishwasher! Lamb, beef, fish, quail, chicken a medley of vegetables can all be cooked in the tagine – mostly your repertoire of flavours with these key ingredients will be cumin, ginger, chilli, saffron, garlic preserved lemons – so entrance your family and friends with the marvels of Middle Eastern cuisine now - while it’s cold and extra cuddles are compulsory. Cuddle the cook – the sorcerer of sensuous spices!

Business sector bands together to reduce road toll
Acting NTC chief executive George Konstandakos.
AUSTRALIA’S business sector will take a lead in improving road safety under a National Road Safety Partnership program to be launched later this year. Establishment of the program is being led by a steering committee comprised of senior representatives from a diverse range of organisations such as BHP Billiton, Coca-Cola Amatil, Rio Tinto, Telstra, Shell, Toll QX, Volkswagen, Wesfarmers Insurance, Zurich, Holden and Origin Energy. The National Transport Commission (NTC) has also supported the development of the program, which is designed to assist businesses to share information about how to improve road safety in their workplace. Acting NTC chief executive George Konstandakos said the NTC was proud to have played a part in the release of the National Road Safety Partnership program final strategy last week, which underpins the establishment of the program, following public consultation on the draft strategy in the later part of 2012. “This initiative is unique as it is industry driven and aims to promote the role of businesses in reducing the road toll,” Mr Konstandakos said. “Work related road crashes account for almost half of all occupational fatalities in Australia and 15 per cent of the national road toll. As almost half of the new vehicles sold in Australia each year are purchased by businesses, there is an opportunity for them to have a significant
impact on road safety.” Chief executive of Lumley Insurance – part of Wesfarmers Insurance – John Nagle said that improving road safety in their workplace was good for the community and good for business. “Business can not only make a positive contribution to the community by cutting the number of incidents staff and vehicles are involved in, but they can also improve productivity and reduce their costs from time lost to injury and compensation.” The steering committee is currently working
on the establishment of a website in conjunction with the NTC and UK Roadsafe, to provide an interactive repository for businesses of all sizes to share information about improving workplace road safety. Members have also collaborated on the development of several case studies that illustrate the safety, productivity and environmental gains achievable by businesses making changes to their safety culture. The National Road Safety Partnership program final strategy is on the website ntc.gov.au.
Geelong tragedy prompts safety warning THIS YEAR
A regional partnership with TAC and the Victorian Government Maintain vigilance about road safety. (Rural Vic Toll YTD) The above figures represent regional Victoria’s road toll.
TRANSPORT Safety Victoria (TSV) is pleading with pedestrians to take care around buses following the tragic death last week of an 11 year old boy in Geelong. The child was on his bike when he was struck by a bus at the corner of Purnell Road and Bacchus Marsh Road, Corio. Alarmingly, it was the second such fatality in less than two months in Victoria – the other fatality resulting from a collision with a bus in Wallan on March 31. According to TSV incident statistics, a total of nine pedestrian collisions with buses were reported in the first quarter of 2013 across the
state. In comparison, only two collisions were reported for the same three month period in each of the previous two years. TSV director of bus safety Stephen Turner said pedestrians and cyclists are being reminded of the importance of safety when they are around buses. “The recent fatality in Geelong serves as a tragic reminder to all about the importance of staying safe around buses. “Pedestrians can minimise the risks of serious injury or death by being alert, following road rules and exercising caution when they are in the vicinity of buses,” Mr Turner said.
TSV urges pedestrians to: • avoid using distracting devices such as mobile phones and iPods around buses • not attempt to approach the bus until it has stopped • stand back from the kerb as the bus pulls in • ensure that the bus driver can see them and they can see the driver • look in all directions for approaching traffic after the bus has departed and ensure they have a clear view of the road. To view TSV’s latest bus incident statistics report, visit transportsafety.vic.gov. au.

Buccaneers back on top BY ALI DEANE AFTER the Vic Bowl trophy slipped out of their grasp in last year’s final, the Geelong Buccaneers have attacked the 2013 season with hunger, a new approach to training and are sitting on top of the ladder with four wins from four games. Players travel from as far as Ballarat, Bacchus Marsh, Colac, Torquay and Ocean Grove to play with the region’s only gridiron club and in last month’s Vic Bowl re-match, the Buccaneers got one back over the Monash Warriors in a hard fought battle.
Defensive coach and star Buccaneer linebacker Layke Rossiello said the highs and lows of that game had every player and fan from both teams biting their finger nails. “To lead for the majority of last year’s Vic Bowl and lose in double overtime was disappointing. “But last month, to come from behind and win on the final play as time expired was fantastic. “This sent a message to all of the teams in Gridiron Victoria that the game is never over. “Our players are very focussed and this has helped us come from behind to win three out of our four games this year. The third quarter is where the game
is won and lost and we always come out firing in the third.” Rossiello said the Buccaneers are happy with where they are as a team at the moment, but know they have a lot of improving to do if they want to win the Vic Bowl, come August 24. “We have now only won one (2011) out of three Vic Bowl appearances and we are hungry to improve on this win loss ration this season. “Our players spent a lot of time in the gym during the off season and we took a new approach to our weekly team training sessions in regards to full contact training. We believe that this new approach
has helped our players come into the season healthier and this has led to our early success. “We are taking the season one week at a time and we are not trying to get ahead of ourselves.” The Geelong Buccaneers are one of 11 clubs across metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria, and call The Cove, Hendy Street Corio home. The Buccaneers have expanded their player base this season and welcome anyone who wants to play or be involved in the sport. Recruitment for juniors and women’s competition will start in July, with training starting in August. Head to geelongbuccaneers. com.au or contact Layke on 0433 298 278 for more.

AS I previously advised, two rallies by fishers where held on Sunday June 2. One was a rally for the future of fishing for recreational fishers in Commonwealth waters. The other was on local issues run by Friends of Corio Bay Action Group (FOCBAG) about the ongoing issues this group has with commercial netting in Corio Bay. Approximately 120 were in attendance at the Torquay rally and 300 in Geelong. The outcome of both rallies was to see recreational fishers show up regardless of the weather to add their support. This show of support by both groups to the improvement of our lot as recreational fishers was about the future of fishing for our children and their children. Liberal candidate for Corangamite Sarah Henderson fronted the rally in Torquay and was joined by Rex Hunt, Shadow Minister for Climate Action, Environment and Heritage Greg Hunt and Shadow Parliamentary Secretary for Fisheries and Forestry, Senator Richard Colbeck. In Geelong, the rally was attended by Geelong recreational fishers led by FOCBAG member and Geelong City Councillor John (Jock) Irving. “From my viewpoint and that of my party, throwing a line from the jetty or taking the boat out for a bit of fishing is part of the Australian culture,” Ms Henderson said. “It is the recreational fishing community which understands and cares for the marine environment. Marine parks can work – but not when they are forced on communities and there are question marks over whether they have been developed on science or politics.” According to Cr Irvine there was great energy in the crowd at the rally. “From our viewpoint the mood was very positive with everyone vowing to continue to seek a complete ban on
all commercial netting in Corio Bay and taking great strength knowing that this was achieved in Western Port Bay some six years earlier. The crowd acknowledged that this was only the first step in a long journey and mounting pressure on state politicians will be a strategy moving forward. The crowd also believed that commercial long line fishing was acceptable, however, netting was completely opposed. Thank you to all those who attended on their excellent behaviour and support!” Corangamite MP Darren Cheeseman said recreational fishing was a healthy active, family sport. “I fish with my family and totally enjoy it. However, I want to be able to ensure my kids can fish into the future and to do so we need to be realistic so to ensure that creation of marine parks is important to help preserve those fish stocks. “As far as FOCBAG are concerned I support these recreational fishers 100 per cent. I believe we have to ban commercial netting in the bay and I fully support their endeavours.” Photos: 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.

Davies and Cardelli set sights on century BY ALI DEANE AUSTRALIAN ultra runners of the year Brendan Davies and Beth Cardelli have just joined the growing start list of elites heading to Anglesea this spring to take on the Surf Coast Century 100 kilometre ultra marathon. Fresh from victories at the North Face 100 kilometres in the Blue Mountains last month, Davies and Cardelli will meet defending title holders Rowan Walker and Shona Stephenson, as well as Jo Brischetto – North Face 100 runner-up.
Davies, who has represented Australia in road, mountain and trail running, is looking forward to hitting Anglesea’s coastal trails this September 21. “It was definitely on my radar for this year; just the sheer beauty of it and the uniqueness of the run is something that really appeals to me,” Davies said. “The fact that it takes in the beaches and cliffs, then through the headlands; I don’t get to do these types of runs living in the Blue Mountains so most of my runs are through the bush and not coastal.” Davies said he looked forward to putting in a really quick time given the course appeared flatter
than some other ultra trail runs. “I still do a bit of road running, so am quite versatile and I think it will really suit me. Leading up I will be doing a few long road runs, and get down to the beach for a couple of long runs to get used to the sand underfoot as well.” Cardelli, three-time North Face winner and current course record holder from northern Sydney said the Surf Coast Century 100 kilometre was a must-do event. “People that have done the event said how good it was! They said it would be great for me with the
single trails, coastal views and a great weekend. “Everyone seems to have had a really good time last year, so I have to come down to join in the fun.” On top of the pure enjoyment of longer distance racing, Cardelli said people were one of the other main reasons that attracted her to trail running – not just the bush and scenery. The Surf Coast Century, encompassing cliff top trails, beach, single-track and hinterland of Anglesea is designed for both solo runners and teams of up to four taking on 25 kilometres each. Entries are now open online at surfcoastcentury.com.au.

ANGLESEA GOLF CLUB
WITH MARGOT SMITH
TORQUAY GOLF CLUB
FROM THE GOLF SHOP
The men had good conditions for their stableford round on Wednesday and the
It was monthly medal for the ladies and a stroke round on Thursday. We had a very strong wind to contend with, and the scores were a little subdued as a result. Jenny Inman was delighted to win her first medal with a tidy nett 75 winning Division 3. Ann Stokes won Division 1 with nett 77 and also had the best gross score for the day with 91. Dinah Kosky won Division 2 with nett 78 and Margaret Harvey was the best of the gold ladies with nett 69 off golf tees. Veronica Shaw was the best putter on the day with only 30 putts and the NTP winners were Ann Stokes, Sue Bowler, Dee Stewart and Lyn Thompson. Enjoy your golf.
LAST Sunday’s weather put a dampener on a mixed par competition although there were a few brave souls that ventured out onto the course. One of those was winner Ross Marin coming home with +2 on count back from Robert Muffet. NTPs Travis Coles and Garry Smith. Andrew Carr won the jackpot. Last Monday, the ladies hosted the Challenge Bowl at our club and what an honour it was to show off all of our new facilities to teams from all around the district. The team from The Kingswood Golf Club combined well to win the Bowl. But there were also the division winners and for A grade Beverley Wheeler from the Lonsdale GC with 37 points had the best score, in B grade Lesley Winslett from the Kingswood GC also had 37 points and for C grade it was Lisa Reed from The Sands with the best score of the day 41 points. NTPs Angela Widdison, Alyson Slimmon, Carol McDonald and Janet Sharp. Thank you to all of our volunteer ladies that helped out on the day with spotting and raking and above all looking after our visitors on what was a very successful day. Well done to Lyn Brady who on Tuesday won A Grade with 37 points. There was a welcome return to Tuesday golf for Helen Haeberle this week as she had the winning B grade score of 36 points. C grade went to Maxine Flakemore with 33
points. NTPs Mandy Buckley, Lyndsey Dunstan, Merle Whitnall and Heather Wemyss-Smith. Sue Morris hit the jackpot. The men played stableford on Wednesday and Greg Giampiccolo won A Grade with a score of 40 points. Geoff Richmond with 41 points took out B Grade and for C Grade Peter Fox scored 42 points. Congratulations to Cec Browning on his score of 40 points to win the seniors. NTPs Kevin McDonald, Sid Chandley and Geoff Richmond. Rick McNamara took out the other two NTPs but not done for the day he scored his 2nd hole in one within a fortnight on the 12th hole as well, talk about having a day out! Geoff Richmond, Phillip Smith and Peter Cannon all had eagles on the 10th while Paul French had his on the 4th. Ross Forbes hit the jackpot. This week our results are going to print early as we celebrate the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, we will have more results for you in next week’s edition so if you did not see some winners that would normally be here take heart they have not been played. Get your name down for some upcoming events like the ladies club medal on the June 11 and a novelty game for the men on the June 16 Texas Scramble, and on the June 24. The Vets/Seniors is on again.

THIS week we have had some changes on the course with a few of the very big pine trees at the bottom of the second removed. The trees were introduced species and their removal is part of the program to revert to indigenous species over time. The added benefit of their removal is the introduction of a bit of sunshine to the bottom of the fairway and perhaps a drier fairway through the winter months. I’m sure most of us will appreciate not having to hit off pine needles for our approach shot. The next clean up bee for the gunners is on Tuesday June 18. Details are on the website and the team would love to see you there and helping. We have exciting news for those old rockers among us, with Joe Camilleri and friends performing at the club on Saturday July 20. Dinner, two course meal followed by a cheese platter, and show is $77 per person, and the show only, from 8.30pm, is $40. Tickets can be purchased via our website through the ticket office link accessible for members and the general public, or you can phone Mary on 0419 155 935. Our men’s veterans had a day trip to Colac this week for the annual Geelong versus Corangamite District Shield. Ray Shaw did his bit for the Geelong District with a win in Division 2 scoring 38 points, but it wasn’t enough for Geelong to regain the shield.
THE SANDS TORQUAY LAST Wednesday The Sands hosted Brett Ogle and the team from the Fox Sports Golf Show. Brett interviewed Jarrod Lyle during a social 9 holes. The interview will feature on Golf Sports in the coming weeks, with members to be advised of the date.
LADIES Thursday: In cold windy conditions the ladies battled it out with Kate Moerenhout coming out the victor winning the Medal by 4 shots with a nice nett score of 74! In second place was the ever so happy Kathryn Simson recording a nett 78. The NTP on the 5th was won by (drum roll) Kathryn Simson and the 13th was won by the lovely Merle Whitnall. Winner of the Pro Comp was Captain Carol McDonald with a nett score of 79 just pipping Marianne Bridgart and Sue Browne both with nett 80!
MEN’S Wednesday Stableford: Craig Hunter proved that

activity on the second didn’t seem to worry them. Scott Saunders won A grade with 37 points, Terry Knapp won C grade with 36 points, Alan Parton won the seniors with 32 points, and Brian Emerson won B grade with 39 points, the best score of the day. All the nearest the pins were close – Barry Coleman, Barry Mason, Scott Saunders, and the closest of them all was Colin Favre with his hole in one on the 13th. According to wife Sandy, who had the shot replayed to her numerous times on Wednesday night, the ball landed before the green and rolled on. Colin scored five balls for that shot and we hope he shared the spoils with Sandy.
FROM THE MEMBERS’ ROOM last week was no fluke, once again winning A Grade. Craig’s score of 42 points was just good enough as he defeated Ray Hocking on a count back. In B Grade Gavan Clarke took out a new hybrid and won the comp, with a great score of 41 points. Ron Smith finished runner up with his score of 40 points. Geoff King won the NTP on the 5th and visitor Peter Blackford Gray won the NTP on the 13th. Charlie Celi eagled the 16th hole.
MEDLEYS Tuesday 9 Hole Stableford: Judy CampbellStewart was the winner of the day with 20 points. Elaine Denning finished runner up with 16 points.

PORTARLINGTON GOLF CLUB CONGRATULATIONS to the board, management and staff for success at the PGA awards night. After the Barwon Cleaning Supplies Pro-Am we were judged 2012/2013 Victorian Regional Pro-Am of the Year, and for the second time we were awarded 2012/2013 Victorian Regional Pro-Am Course of the Year. Great to have this recognition of the excellent work of staff and volunteers! While speaking of awards, we have another. This is the Idiot of the Week Award and was won hands down by the club member who played early last Tuesday and climbed the steep face of the south bunker on the sixth green. You managed to badly damage the face of the bunker and didn’t show the courtesy of at least trying to repair the damage. It is disappointing that the other members of the group didn’t speak to the idiot and show him what is required of players.

Torquay boxers bring home glory BY ALI DEANE RISING local boxing stars are proving they’ve got what it takes as Jay Dalli and Jayden Moyle returned to Torquay from the second in the Victorian Amateur Boxing League (VABL) competition series with wins under their belts last month. State featherweight champion Dalli won his third consecutive fight and Moyle celebrated his second in a row, after winning in a technical knockout. James Curry’s opponent failed to show and Nathan Smerdon was forced to withdraw due to an unfair matchup. All boxers had gone in confident, having trained hard, including in-house competitions, drills, runs, sparring and tow-in boxing training. Every two months Torquay Coastal Boxing runs in-house fights to expose boxers to competition, which resumes in July.
Current Torquay champions are Charlie Beith (heavyweight), Ben Mussett (light heavy), Nathan Smerdon (middleweight and light middleweight) and Jay Dalli (lightweight, featherweight and bantamweight). Up for grabs are titles in flyweight, welterweight, super-middle weight and cruiserweight. Trainer Ashley Lynch said it was great for confidence, and when boxers are doing the real thing, they are not so nervous. Dalli, Moyle and the rest of the competition boxers at Torquay Coastal Boxing have their eyes on the next VABL fight of the series, on Saturday June 29 in Lilydale, in the lead up to state titles in Geelong in November. Current state featherweight champion Jay Dalli undertaking some tow-in boxing with trainer Ashley Lynch at Torquay Coastal Boxing. Dalli got 1100 punches in during this session.
Ocean Grove aim for nationals BY ALI DEANE OCEAN Grove Surf Life Saving Club’s (SLSC) inflatable rescue boat (IRB) team perpetuated its reputation as the strongest in the region as runners-up at the state championships last month, behind dominant bay side club Williamstown. Conditions could not have been better for the biggest day in Victorian IRB racing that saw over 175 competitors converge on Lorne beach to show their mastery of rescue, racing and life saver relays. All Ocean Grove competitors made it to the finals, including the three women’s teams. Gold medals were won in the women’s tube final and men’s teams final, and the final race of the day saw all 16 competitors join forces, with a fantastic position across the finish line seeing them take home the silver. The state team, announced following competition, will see Jake Pownall, Gilbert Gant, Olly Gant, Genevieve Wild, Haylee Holt
Under 11 coach Fay Valcanis with players from Aireys Inlet.
Round ball bounce in Aireys Inlet THE world game has hit the coast with an influx of players from Aireys Inlet doubling the number of Surf Coast teams in the FFV Southern Hub competition in both under 9 and under 11 level. The players from Aireys train up to two times per week at Banyul Warri Reserve in Torquay with matches all over Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula. Despite the travel, coach Fay Valcanis says the boys love competing against other teams. “It is great to have so many boys playing the
game from Aireys. There is a real bond between the players both at training and during the matches – they love playing for Surf Coast”. The Aireys Inlet girls are also making a substantial contribution to the club, competing at both local and metro levels. The club greatly appreciates the effort the boys and girls put in driving in all the way for training and games, not to mention the effort of Fay Valcanis in putting her hand up to coach.
and Samantha Cain as team patient manager represent Victoria at the interstate championships in Darwin in July. Ocean Grove SLSC IRB team manager Samantha Cain said Ocean Grove had a great day, with some great results in the finals. “In the overall points at the end of the day it was Williamstown that claimed back the state titles overall championship. Although we were disappointed to not be able to keep a hold of the state’s overall point score title, we knew going up against a quality team like Williamstown was going to take a flawless performance.” Winners of the women’s tube final comprised Ocean Grove’s A team - Bianca Stevens (driver), Genevieve Wild (crew) and patient Blake Sweeney. And the men’s teams’ final victory was a joint effort by Jake Pownall (driver), crew Gilbert Gant, patient Haylee Holt, driver Olly Gant, crew Guy Kinsey and patient Holly Howden-Crhak. Cain thanked team members and supporters, and wished all luck in Darwin July 18-22.
Tigers clarify reserve contribution THE Torquay Tigers have clarified their contribution to the redevelopment of Spring Creek Reserve, which was officially launched on June 1. As reported in the Surf Coast Times on June 4, the state and federal governments announced the $1.78 million works at the home of the football and netball club included $680,000 from the state government, $600,000 from the federal government, $470,000 from the Surf Coast Shire and more than $22,000 from the Torquay Tigers. However, Tigers’ president Steve Dunstan said the club’s contribution was actually $200,000 – a point he raised during the launch. He said $150,000 of that amount had been raised
by the club over four to five years in a deliberate commitment to the upgrade. “We could have been putting that money into buying players.” The club also contributed $50,000 of in-kind support through items such as cabinetry and benchworks. Mr Dunstan said the Tigers were working with the Surf Coast Shire on a plan to install new playground equipment, and the club’s cricketers also needed a new shed. He said the club’s Buy A Brick campaign – where people donate $100 a brick to have their name/s engraved on a plaque in the new function rooms – was also still running.
