IN THE DUMPS Barwon Coast calls for help to stop illegal dumping
BY JAMES TAYLOR
A SPIKE in illegal dumping is threatening to ruin the ecosystem of the Ocean Grove Spit and the wider dune system. Barwon Coast is seeking the support of the community to stamp out the dumping, which has flared up again in June and July. The spit is a unique land formation and is relatively young in the geological sense. The vegetation within the sand dunes binds the soil stabilising the dunes, while providing valuable habitat and food sources for Indigenous fauna.
Maddie Glynn, from Barwon Coast, said the natural values of the coastal reserves were being compromised by a few. “When illegal dumping takes place, the aesthetic value of the local community is diminished, impacts on the stability of the dunes, can leach contaminants into the soil, compromises the health of our native flora and fauna, attracts rodents, insects and other vermin to the site, and poses human health risks all leading to added expenses to society.” Illegal dumping has been a recent infuriation for Barwon Coast members. On June 11, the Bellarine Times
reported on a large amount of building rubble being dumped at the driveway leading to the Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club, which took two committee members the entirety of the following day to clear away. People have been reminded that dumping any form of rubbish – from emptying ashtrays, garden waste or larger items such as bedding and office equipment – in coastal car parks or adjoining reserves without authorisation is illegal. Under the Environment Protection Act, individuals can be fined more than $610,000 or sentenced to seven years’ jail, while companies face fines of

up to $1 million. Senior sergeant Angelo Ferrara, of the Bellarine police station, encouraged
locals or visitors alike to be vigilant and phone triple-0 if they saw anyone acting suspiciously in or around the spit or any other coastal area. “Our patrol members will deploy as soon as they can to any reports of illegal dumping. It would also help our investigation greatly if registration numbers of vehicles, full descriptions of persons involved and locations can be obtained and passed onto the triple-0 operator immediately.” To report illegal dumping, phone triple-0, the EPA’s Litter Report Line on 1300 372 842, Barwon Coast (during business hours) on 5254 1118 or Bellarine police on 5256 2698.

Two new spots for Bellarine community groups There are now 23 community promotion signs available for hire by not-for-profit groups, with two new locations added on the Bellarine. A new frame was recently installed at St Leonards near the entrance sign, and another at Indented Head on the corner of the Esplanade and Hood Road. These spots are ready and waiting to be booked by community groups. Our community promotion signs present an affordable and easy way to promote events and services to the local community and visitors. I know there are plenty of active community groups on the Bellarine, with something for people of all ages and interests. All of the 23 frames are in prominent spots around the municipality to provide community groups with maximum value and minimum fuss. For a $70 fee, community groups can choose five locations to display signs for up to four weeks before their event. All sign locations have a permanent City of Greater Geelong frame with windows for community signs. For a list of sign locations and how to book please go to geelongaustralia.com.au/ community/resources or phone 5272 5272 for more information.

The Geelong Small Business Festival kicks off this week, with over forty events planned for small business owners in every sector across Greater Geelong, with a number to be held on the Bellarine. Business owners can learn about how to Re-energise and Relaunch your Business at
Springdale Community Centre in Drysdale on August 26. This session takes participants through the four key tools for re-energising your business and how to implement them for quick results. The session also presents an opportunity for networking and sharing ideas with other local businesses. The Geelong Small Business Festival is about providing useful advice and support to business owners and to stimulate thinking. Small business owners encounter opportunities and challenges on a regular basis. While many cannot be addressed in a single seminar, the Geelong Small Business Festival offers the chance to meet with like-minded people, be inspired and pick up new ideas. Event topics will include social media and marketing, recruiting and retaining staff, leadership, buying and selling business and how to develop and grow your business as well as networking opportunities. I would like to thank Victoria’s Small Business Festival for their huge support and of course all the business people that assist in hosting events.

Drysdale RSL military history expands BY DEAN WEBSTER THE Drysdale RSL’s Australian Military History to Schools (AMHS) project has gained momentum in the region, as more schools and RSL branches come on board. Originally a project of Drysdale RSL, driven by new projects organiser Bill Derham, the project includes seven schools, with three more coming on board from next month. The program covers events of significance in Australian’s military history – the National Service, the defence of Darwin, Kokoda, the retaking of Kokoda, the end of war in the Pacific, Australians in Korea, Australians in Vietnam and Lone Pine day. Since inception at Christian College, the program has now expanded to year 5 and 6 students at Moolap, Leopold, Wallington, St Thomas, Christian College, Clifton Springs and Drysdale primary schools and will soon include Moriac, Point Lonsdale and St Aloysius Queenscliff primary schools through the AMHS team from Queenscliff Point Lonsdale RSL.
Drysdale Primary School assistant principal Steve Barry said AMHS organised by the Drysdale RSL is an excellent initiative. “I strongly recommend that other schools get on board with the programs that the RSL offers. “The program creates a greater awareness and understanding of our country’s involvement in the many conflicts that have happened over time, and we are passionate about our country’s history, regularly taking students to visit the war memorial in Canberra.” The expansion of the Drysdale RSL program will be supported by a trained team of members of the Queenscliff Point Lonsdale RSL, Portarlington St Leonards RSL and the Ocean Grove Barwon Heads RSL. For the course, Mr Derham and wife Jeanette, with help from the Drysdale Ladies Auxiliary, have searched archives around the region and further afield to find film footage for each hour-long session, a copy of which is left for the school to refer to in the future.

Revitalisation planning project powers on BY DEAN WEBSTER THANKS to $500,000 from the Federal Government’s Regional Development Australia Fund, both stage one and two of the Point Lonsdale Foreshore Revitalisation project are fully funded and on target. The undergrounding of power lines from Admans Street to Kirk Road has commenced. Stage one of the main street and foreshore revitalisation also includes a small roundabout at Admans Street and a new lookout platform and
disability compliant access ramp. Works should be completed before Christmas. Stage two will commence after the Easter holiday period in 2014 and will include the continuation of undergrounding of power lines along Point Lonsdale Road, access improvements to the foreshore, and new public amenities such as picnic tables and barbeque facilities at a total cost of $1.32 million. Federal Member for Corangamite Darren Cheeseman said that he was delighted that the government were able to contribute $500,000 to the project.
“The Rudd government saw the opportunity to partner with the community and the borough to deliver this once-in-a-generation revitalisation of the foreshore that has such a majestic view across the heads.” Borough of Queenscliffe mayor Helene Cameron said that the council is working with the Point Lonsdale Main Street reference group to produce a draft foreshore vegetation plan, which will include discussions on the future of the existing Monterey Cypress and Norfolk Island Hibiscus trees, and proposed new tree plantings. “The revitalisation works will help beautify the
Point Lonsdale village streetscape, will improve access to and the appeal of the foreshore area, and provide benefit to the local community and businesses as well as visitors,” she said. Point Lonsdale Civic Association vice president John Goodman, who also sits on the community reference group, said the council needs to look at the possibility of retaining the northern Cypress tree without changing the proposed works. Head to recently launched Point Lonsdale Civic Association’s website vicnet.net.au/~plca for updates about the revitalisation planning.

Keep plastic bags out of your recycling bin For safety reasons, staff at the recycling facility will not open plastic bags, no matter what the contents are. So anything in plastic bags will end up in landfill. Empty plastic bags can also get caught in the conveyor belts, jam spinning wheels and bring the entire sorting process to a halt. To recycle empty plastic bags, drop them off at specially marked recycling bins at the front of most Coles and Woolworths supermarkets.

news 05 Community collaborates for health and wellbeing Tuesday 30 July 2013
BY RACHEL DELANY THE Borough of Queenscliffe has released a draft Health and Wellbeing plan for 2013-2017. This plan will focus on five health and wellbeing priorities including a healthy, inclusive and connected community, plans for population change, advocacy for access to services, help to facilitate the best start in life, and initiatives to protect and promote the health of the community. An integral part of this plan focuses around teamwork, and the theme of working together in a coordinated and supportive way. â€œAchieving the priorities described in this new Health and Wellbeing plan will be challenging and will only be possible by working together,â€? said Borough of Queenscliffe mayor Helene Cameron. â€œRather than list every action needed to create a healthy community, the new plan describes how we can work together to achieve our health and wellbeing priorities. â€œGiven the cohesive community within the Borough of Queenscliffe and our ability to work
together, I think the approach weâ€™ve taken will be really effective,â€? she said. Preparation for the development of councilâ€™s Health and Wellbeing plan commenced last December. It has involved all five councils in the G21 region â€“ City of Greater Geelong, Surf Coast Shire, Golden Plains Shire, Colac Otway Shire and Borough of Queenscliffe â€“ working together to achieve local plans as well as a regional outlook. Both regional and local workshops were held with wide participation from a broad range of community members and organisations. The community is invited to read and make submissions on the draft Health and Wellbeing plan 2013-2017. Written submissions should be addressed to the attention of the chief executive officer and are due by August 26. Any person who makes a written submission should indicate if they wish to be heard in person in support of their submission. Copies of the draft plan may be viewed at council Borough of Queenscliffe Health and Wellbeing four year plan focuses on community collaboration. Here, Emma offices or via queenscliffe.vic.gov.au.

Fresh faces in coastal committee management BY DEAN WEBSTER THE Minister for Environment and Climate Change Ryan Smith has recently appointed new members to local coastal management committees. The three year appointments were made via a formal expression of interest process administered by the Department of Environment and Primary Industry. At Barwon Coast, committee chair Mark Edmonds was reappointed by the minister as chair
for a further three years, and three new members were appointed â€“ Kerry Petty from Ocean Grove, Sandra Gatehouse from Barwon Heads and Tony Overman from Moriac. The new members join existing members Danny Keating, John Lesser, Ron Patterson and Mark Rodrigue. Barwon Coast general manager Bob Jordon welcomed the appointment of three new members to the Barwon Coast Committee of Management.
Where do you stand?
â€œI am looking forward to working with the new committee members whilst also recognising the long term voluntary commitment of the five existing committee members especially chair Mark Edmonds who has been on the committee since 2001,â€? he said. Bellarine Bayside has five new members â€“ Sherry Babcock, Chris Chetcuti, Andrea Lindsay, Vicki Perrett and Paul Simmons. Cathy Whelan was reappointed as chair and the new members join ongoing board
member Hazel Ingram. Ms Whelan said she was delighted with the new appointments to the board. â€œThe new board brings skills, experience and knowledge across a range of areas including integrated natural resources management, community engagement, education, law, financial planning, local government, Aboriginal heritage, land and marine use planning, public sector governance and organisational change and leadership,â€? she said.

Council cools on NPLV bid by clubs BY JAMES TAYLOR THE Surf Coast Shire has blown a whistle on bids by two local soccer clubs for support for their entry into a new statewide league. There are 20 spots available for teams in the National Premier League Victoria (NPLV), which will be the second highest tier of soccer in Australia when it kicks off next year. Full applications to Football Federation Victoria close tomorrow. The Surf Coast Football Club is seeking sponsorship for its bid, and has requested $20,000 per year for three years from the shire. The new Greater Geelong Galaxy team has also asked the shire for a letter of support for its application. At their meeting last week, councillors resolved to reject both requests but offered in-principle support for Surf Coast FCâ€™s NPLV application. Surf Coast FC hopes to use the community and civic precinct in Torquay as its training and match day base.
Shire chief executive officer Stephen Wall said the council had a big role to play in creating infrastructure for sporting clubs and the wider community. â€œThis potentially could be a challenge for the council going forward if a NPLV club sees the need to start using our infrastructure.â€? Sustainable communities director Dennis Barker said upgrading the precinct to meet the NPLVâ€™s specifications would cost about $490,000, but no money had been allocated in the capital works budget. Several councillors questioned whether expressing in-principle support would have future implications, but Mr Wall said the council had not committed to anything. â€œThe council does, in principle, support a lot of things throughout the shire. â€œWeâ€™ve been very clear about the councilâ€™s position (to Surf Coast FC). The response of the declining of the $20,000 does send a pretty clear message.â€? Cr Rod Nockles suggested the two clubs could submit a joint bid, but Mr Wall said Surf Coast FC and the Greater Geelong Galaxy were â€œfiercely independentâ€?.

Carbon change will cut cost of living BY JAMES TAYLOR CORANGAMITE Federal MP Darren Cheeseman says changes to the carbon tax will cut the cost of living by about $375 a year for residents in Geelong and the Surf Coast. Earlier this month, the federal government announced the switch from a fixed to a floating price on carbon emissions would take place one year earlier, at the start of July next year. Mr Cheeseman said Treasury modelling had
shown introducing a floating rate a year ahead of schedule would ease the cost of living by $7.20 a week. â€œThe impact will be greatest on electricity and gas bills. â€œThis move is expected to save the average household around $3 a week, or over $150 in the year, on its electricity bills and around $1.10 per week, or $57 over the year, on its gas bills, providing much-needed cost of living relief to many households in Corangamite.
â€œImportantly, households and pensioners will continue to receive payments calculated on a higher carbon price, providing additional support to meet cost of living pressures. These benefits are permanent.â€? The price for a tonne of carbon is expected to drop from $25.40 now to about $6 in July 2014. Mr Cheeseman said the change would be budget-neutral and bring Australia into step with its major trading partners. Liberal candidate for Corangamite Sarah
Henderson said the carbon tax, whether fixed or floating, was something families and businesses could ill-afford. â€œCorangamite residents have been hit with rising utility and living prices since the introduction of the carbon tax. Kevin Rudd will still introduce a carbon tax on diesel fuel for heavy trucks on July 1 next year, which means higher transportation costs and pressure on prices. â€œFor the record â€“ when the Coalition says it will abolish the carbon tax, we mean it.â€?

news 07 State mulls big tourism plans for Great Ocean Road Tuesday 30 July 2013
BY JAMES TAYLOR THE state government will look to make major investments along the Great Ocean Road to bring in Asian tourists as part of its tourism plan for the next decade. Last week, Minister for Tourism Louise Asher launched Victoria’s 2020 Tourism Strategy, which aims to grow the state’s overnight tourism expenditure by 6.6 per cent a year for the next seven years to hit $24.7 billion. One of the seven priority areas in the strategy is investment attraction and infrastructure support,
by supporting investment, services and products to meet the needs and aspirations of consumers in key markets, including Asia. The strategy refers to the 2011 product gap audit of the Great Ocean Road, which found a key gap to be a low supply of high quality internationally branded accommodation, with such accommodation only in Warrnambool, Torquay, Lorne and Geelong. In the short to medium term, the strategy aims to increase yield by supporting major investment in priority regions, with an initial focus on the Great Ocean Road.
In the long term, the state government will support investments that enhance Victoria’s naturebased tourism products, such as completing high end walking experiences and associated accommodation development. Ms Asher said the intention was to grow the industry so it contributed $34 billion to Victoria’s gross state product and generated an extra 109,000 jobs. “Victoria’s 2020 Tourism Strategy has been developed to ensure Victoria realises its full potential as a tourism destination of choice for travellers from fast growing Asian economies
and across Australia.” As part of its tourism push, the state government recently extended leases in national parks from 50 to 99 years in an attempt to encourage ecotourism development. The move has been criticised by the Victorian National Parks Association – which described the extension as effectively a “for sale” sign on national parks – the state opposition, and Corangamite Federal MP Darren Cheeseman.

Police don the new blue BY DEAN WEBSTER TORQUAY police are among the first in the state to wear Victoria Police’s new dark blue uniform, stepping out in the new uniform last week. The new attire was unveiled in December last year, and chief commissioner Ken Lay and other members of force command started to wear the uniform in June, marking the first significant change in Victoria Police’s uniform for more than thirty years. Sergeant Brian McKiterick, officer in charge of Torquay police, is pleased with the new look uniforms and said that it reflects the professional brand of Victoria Police. “The darker blue is relevant to traditional police uniforms and projects police as having a standing in the community, and is readily identifiable and distinguishable. “It is a uniform best suited for current policing methods and enforcement, and has been widely
accepted by local police members who have been very positive in relation to its appearance and practicability.” The new uniforms in “salute” blue are the result of feedback from members and collaboration with industry experts. Last year, 150 members across the state participated in wearer trials, testing out shirts, trousers, caps and garments to wear under police vests. Police also canvassed what was happening around Australia and overseas and advancements in fabric technology and style. Superintendent Paul Pottage said local police were pleased to receive the new uniforms. “We are the first division to welcome the uniform in the western region, and we are looking forward to getting our new look patrols out on the street. “But while our uniform has changed, our commitment to keeping the community safe remains.”

Ocean Grove Fresh Fruit turns one BY ALI DEANE THE CREW at Ocean Grove Fresh Fruit is proud to mark one year of supplying locals with the freshest fruit and vegetables around as they celebrate the milestone this winter. Proprietors Val and Paul Hodgson, with a small team of dedicated employees, set up the rustic, boutique store last year and their reputation among locals and visitors has only grown. With his childhood spent on a property at St Arnaud and schooling in Geelong, Mr Hodgson’s ties to Ocean Grove were strong so the couple decided to return to the coastal hamlet from Queensland to set up shop. “We are very passionate about the fruit and vegetable industry, and we buy our produce daily because we want to provide our customers with the freshest,” Mrs Hodgson said. The pair’s time in the industry has included growing red papaya and bananas in Tully, Queensland, retail and export of exotic produce to Japan. They both sold produce for growers in the wholesale fruit and vegetable market at Rocklea, Brisbane and Paul worked in the Melbourne Wholesale Market in Footscray. Ocean Grove Fresh Fruit is also home to an array
of specialty and unusual, hard-to-find items such as kohlrabi, Jerusalem artichoke, zucchini flower, popcorn shoots and okra. When perusing around the rustic wood, tin and hessian set-up akin to walking through the packing shed on a farm, one can also pick up a wide range of locally sourced Mannagum products, gluten free pastas and sauces, Edmonds honey, olive oils from Inverleigh, and specialty items like blood orange cordial. Also in stock are traditionally wood smoked ham and bacon, Shaw River buffalo yoghurt, rice and grains, caramelised fig and pomegranate dressing. “We like having a complete range of all fruit and vegetables. We support local suppliers first, and source Australian produce wherever possible. “We also really like to introduce people to new products – we have daily taste testings, we’ve got Paul’s Tip of the Week, 10 per cent off all fruit and vegetables on Sundays, we sell flowers, nuts and also offer wholesale to local businesses.” Mrs Hodgson said they were thrilled with the support from all over the Bellarine, from those who prefer to shop fresh and with an independent.

Lions Club community raffle on again Lions president Terry Parsons and raffle chairman Graeme Tonzing check this year's ticket.
THE Portarlington-Drysdale Lions Club community raffle is on again and president Terry Parsons is confident that this year’s fundraiser will exceed previous efforts. The club has secured a variety of very desirable prizes, including a $1,000 credit account with the Bendigo Bank, and several holiday prizes, such as three days at Murray River Resort or two nights at the Four Points Sheraton,
with meals included. Terry explained that as well as organising the raffle, the club was able to source many donated prizes and some top-ups from the club’s funds. “Last year’s community raffle raised more than $10,000, all of which went directly to the community organisations that sold tickets,” he said. “Some organisations raised more than $1,000.” Community organisations that took part in last
year’s effort have already received tickets for this year’s raffle. Sales will commence on August 1 and continue to mid-September. Winners will be drawn on September 25. Any clubs or community organisations wishing to take part in this year’s raffle should contact the Lions Club raffle chairman, Graeme Tonzing, on 0478 631 201.

Job creation is my number one priority The Federal Government has been making the big investments to create new jobs in our region. Labor brought the TAC to Geelong with over 700 staff and now we are bringing the headquarters of DisabilityCare Australia to Geelong which will deliver 500 jobs and potentially more into the future. From Jan 1st our region will be the national headquarters of Australia’s newest Federal department ultimately overseeing DiasbilityCare for 460,000 people Australia-wide. Infrastructure spending has been a significant driver of jobs. The Geelong ring road, duplication of the Princes Highway and the $3.25 billion regional rail project has been creating 1,000’s of construction jobs and future jobs by linking our region. Deakin University is one of Geelong’s biggest employers and we have been making investments in Australia’s only Carbon Fibre centre, new science labs, new engineering facilities, 311 new
units on campus and uncapping University places. Just recently we announced $3 million to establish the centre for emerging diseases in Geelong, a world class research hub to tackle the threat of infectious diseases such as SARS and bird flu. Labor has invested in local infrastructure such as $2 million for Shell Road Reserve, the sports stadium at Barwon Heads Primary School, $500,000
to remove the power lines at Point Lonsdale foreshore and Queenscliff Playground. These projects create significant local jobs and beautify our community. The Federal Government, State and Ford will invest $24 million into a fund to support job creation projects in Geelong and the peninsula. We will match dollar for dollar capital projects that will add new on-going jobs to our city and region. I look forward to
announce new significant projects for our region out of this fund. Labor’s $1 billion manufacturing statement will help create the jobs of the future. All major projects over $500 million will have to prepare an outline of how they will use Australian suppliers for their projects. Delivering jobs for our community is my number one priority.
High speed broadband is coming to our region from early 2015. In addition to plans for the National Broadband Network rollout in Torquay and Jan Juc from early 2015, we have added Angelsea, Breamlea, Aireys Inlet and Fairhaven.
The NBN will super charge our community with more people being able to work from home, local businesses being able to compete with the rest of the world, health appointments in crystal clear high definition TV and our schools can talk to the world in HD.
For houses in towns they will get a fibre connection delivering the fastest internet connection possible at 100 mps and with pricing that starts from $29.95.
People will be able to access significantly faster speeds than those available now in our capital cities on the copper network.
For those outside the fibre rollout fixed wireless and satellite will be delivered at 25 Mbps download and 5 Mbps upload.
Only Labor will deliver the NBN, the Liberals will stop the fibre rollout and use the old copper network.

Simplification of PoPEs praised BY JAMES TAYLOR THE state government is touting its planning reforms as a way for sausage sizzles, fun runs and community events to be held without red tape. The Places of Public Entertainment (PoPEs) permits have been simplified so sporting clubs, community groups and other small event organisers no longer have to comply with the regulations. Under the new rules, community-based and nonprofit organisations running events at recreational facilities larger than 500 square metres, and with
less than 5,000 people attending, will no longer have to apply for a PoPE. The state government approved the Building Regulation amendment after 12 months of consultation with the Municipal Association of Victoria and Sport and Recreation Victoria. Member for Western Victoria David O’Brien has praised the changes as sensible planning reform. “After years of having to comply with onerous regulations whenever they wanted to raise funds, local sporting clubs and community groups will now be able to host their events, charge admission
fees and run club room canteens with certainty and without burdensome building permit regulations,” he said. “The Coalition government is aware that PoPE occupancy permits do not improve community safety and simply impose an unjustifiable administrative and cost burden. “In some cases safety and emergency requirements were being duplicated at events, so PoPE permit reform is a real breakthrough in unnecessary regulation and red tape.” Colac Otway Shire chief executive officer Rob Small welcomed the new system.
He said the permits were not only an impost on community groups but also an administrative burden on the council. “Local government is charged with administering PoPEs, and it is fair to say that these permits cause a considerable amount of angst for community groups and volunteers organising events. “PoPEs also put additional pressure on our staff, who saw first hand the frustration the permits were causing community groups.” He encouraged event organisers to speak to the council’s building department if they needed clarification on whether a PoPE was required.
Everyone wants to play BY HAMISH BROOKS THE City of Greater Geelong’s Supported Playgroup project’s new supported playgroup in the emerging suburb of Armstrong Creek is thriving. Cr Kylie Fisher, who holds council’s portfolio for Community Development, visited the playgroup at Lutheran College on Wednesday and said growing numbers of young families were moving into the new suburb and had expressed their wish to have a local playgroup for their children. Cr Fisher said the Geelong Lutheran College in Burvilles Road, Armstrong Creek, had offered the use of its facilities to enable the new playgroup to be established. The mother in one of those young families that attends the Lutheran College playgroup, Alicia Beard, said living in Warralily in Armstrong Creek
and visiting the playgroup with her daughter Lilli, 22 months, was going really well. “We’ve really enjoyed meeting new people and lots of young families. “Our neighbours have got kids and it’s been great to catch up and everyone is very friendly. “Lilli gets excited when she knows we’re going to the playgroup and we’ve also gone to the W Lounge (a private lounge for Warralily residents). “The kids love it there. “It’s good for toddlers and relaxing for mums.” Sessions at Lutheran College are held each Wednesday during school terms, between 10am and 11.30am.

It’s not a new fire levy, it’s a fairer fire levy. On 1 July 2013, as recommended by the Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission, the Victorian Government is replacing the old fire services levy with a fairer system. Rather than being added to insurance premiums, the levy will now be collected with council rates. This means all property owners contribute a fair share to the Country Fire Authority or the Metropolitan Fire Brigade. The levy is a fixed charge of $100 for residential properties and $200 for non-residential properties, plus a variable charge based on the property’s capital improved value. All funds will go towards supporting Victoria’s fire services. GST and stamp duty charged on the old levy have been removed and, for the first time, eligible pensioners and veterans will receive a $50 concession. These reforms will save households and business around $100 million a year.

Great Ocean Road-closing events such as Amy’s Gran Fondo – seen here rolling through Lorne in 2012 – could only be held twice a year under new guidelines. Photo: WARWICK TUCKER
Have your say on Great Ocean Road closures BY JAMES TAYLOR THE Great Ocean Road would only be allowed to close for events twice a year under a plan now out for community consultation. VicRoads, Victoria Police, Surf Coast Shire and Colac Otway Shire have been working to update the guidelines since August, and have encouraged feedback on the newly-released draft version. Activities covered by the guidelines – which would replace those drawn up in 2008 – include triathlons, fun runs, marathons, community sporting events, cycling and motoring events. Two one-day events would be permitted closure of the Great Ocean Road between O’Donohue Road in Anglesea and Cawood Street in Apollo Bay every year. A closure is defined as when public traffic is restricted from travelling in one or both directions along the road for longer than 20 minutes. The closures would be restricted between May 1–October 31, excluding school holidays and public holidays. Events could be staged on weekends. The organisers of events would have to address a series of application criteria and demonstrate that their event would be professionally run and adequately resourced.
Applicants must also demonstrate clear benefits and/or a legacy that their event provides to the communities affected by the road’s closure. Colac Otway Shire chief executive officer Rob Small said the guidelines aimed to strike a balance between the interests of residents, businesses, event organisers and road users. “The steering committee of agency representatives spoke to residents and businesses from Anglesea to Apollo Bay to ensure the guidelines considered those most affected by the closures. “We recognise that while events along the Great Ocean Road bring an economic boost and raise the profile of the road, those requiring road closures can have a significant impost on people living along the coast. “We strongly recommend that interested people get a copy of the guidelines and provide comment.” A community meeting to discuss the draft guidelines will take place tonight at the Wye River Hotel at 7pm, and all interested people are invited to attend. To download a copy of the guidelines or for more information, phone the Surf Coast Shire on 5261 0600 or the Colac Otway Shire on 5232 9400, or head to surfcoast.vic.gov.au or colacotway.vic.gov.au.

Worldwide surf network evolves surf travel BY ALI DEANE A TRAVELLING surfer’s online network is building momentum since the idea first took off on the eve of the Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach in 2012. Riparide has already impressed some big names in surfing, and this summer will be providing handy solutions and connections for travelling surfers – from spare rooms, boards, equipment, connections and services – all designed to make surf travel simple. Last week, the website officially launched, and founder Marlon Law of Torquay is inviting locals to upload their spaces for rent and boards to lend. Travelling surfers will soon be taking advantage of a quality database of accommodation and equipment options in key Australian surf hot spots including Torquay, Bondi, Manly, Byron Bay, the Gold and Sunshine coasts as well as Margaret River. “Our main goal was to discover what would
be the most ideal things for a traveller,” Mr Law said. “During winter we are focusing our efforts on building a quality level of listings in some of Australia’s most iconic surf destinations. “This is to make sure that travellers are satisfied with what’s on offer when we enable them to search for a place to stay and surfboard to ride.” The search side of Riparide will be available in time for summer. “The more listings we have the sooner we can expand to other surf destinations,” Mr Law said. “Over the next 12 months we are focused on the Australian surf market, with plans to expand to other surf destinations as soon as possible.” The Riparide concept is based on the connections made and experiences when travelling; friends, local knowledge, and the ease of returning to a place where there are people you know.
Former world tour surfer Jake Paterson said Riparide was a “no brainer”. “I’ve spent 11 years on the tour and my best travel experiences have been when I’ve stayed with local families.” After professional surfer Matt Hoy rolled into town for filming of the Hoy Show last year, he said he was so thankful to the Riparide boys for opening up their house over the Rip Curl Pro. “I’m a huge fan of the concept, great work,” Hoy said. Law said the response had been really good so far, and locals could look forward to surf community networking events coming up. Head to riparide.com to find out more, create a profile, and soon you might be earning some extra cash; renting your spare room and surfboard to a traveller. Do you have a spare surfboard, spare room or services to offer a travelling surfer? Check out Riparide, the newest global surf network.
Council looks over its playground plan BY JAMES TAYLOR AN EXTRA 20 public playgrounds will be built in the Surf Coast Shire over the next decade under the council’s reviewed playground strategy. The council will not install shade sails over playgrounds but will take steps to improve shade at its playgrounds through shade-providing features or by planting trees. The shire has committed to spending nearly $4.7 million in its 10-year capital works program on building new playgrounds, upgrading or improving
existing ones, and replacing assets at playgrounds. The total number of shire owned or managed playgrounds will rise from 33 now to 53 in 2022/23. The strategy does not recommend installing shade sails, as they can be very expensive and have frequent problems with vandalism. Instead, shade trees will be planted to the north, west and east of playgrounds, and built shade structures such as pergolas and shelters will be used where appropriate. Play equipment with large surfaces such as slides will be oriented to the south, as that will minimise
the possibility of it overheating and causing discomfort for users. Councillors resolved to accept the reviewed strategy at their meeting last week. The strategy was drawn up in 2011 and did not include last year’s review of the Spring Creek Recreation Reserve master plan, which suggested bringing forward the reserve’s proposed playground. Instead, $10,000 has been included in the budget for some initial play elements, with a recommendation to deliver the full playground in 2017/18.
Cr Rose Hodge said a playground would be welcomed by the recreation reserve’s many users when it arrived. “One of the biggest things in the Spring Creek master plan was for a playground, and it’ll be huge when it’s done.” She said South Barwon MP Andrew Katos and Corangamite Federal MP Darren Cheeseman were keen to support the shire in constructing and improving playgrounds. “I think it’s very important to strike while the iron’s hot.”

Foundation aims to stop violence against women BY JAMES TAYLOR THE Victorian and federal governments have marked the first White Ribbon Night with the launch of a national organisation dedicated to stopping violence against women and their children. Former Democrats leader Natasha Stott Despoja will chair the foundation, which was announced at an event in Melbourne on Friday. More than 200 events were registered across Australia for Friday’s White Ribbon Night, where people had a night in to raise awareness of the seriousness of men’s violence against women. White Ribbon Australia chief executive officer Libby Davies said White Ribbon was in its 10th year in Australia, and there were 450 registered White Ribbon Day events in 2012. “So to have had such a positive response to our first White Ribbon Night is really heartening. “It shows that there is increased awareness of the issue of violence against women in Australia, and that people feel engaged and empowered to help prevent violence, using the White Ribbon Campaign as a means to be a part of the change they want to see in the world.” The Foundation to Prevent Violence against Women and their Children will be a single, national body that informs, educates and empowers the community to end the scourge of family violence. The Victorian and federal governments have invested an initial $6.5 million over two years. Federal Minister for the Status of Women Julie Collins said violence against women was one of the most significant issues facing our community. “Any form of violence is unacceptable, this is why we are taking action. In addition to the personal cost, domestic and family violence costs the Australian community more than $13 billion a year.” State Minister for Community Services
The first White Ribbon Night – its logo is pictured here – was held on Friday last week.
Mary Wooldridge said the federal and Victorian governments joined forces because they understood how critical the situation was across the nation. “To tackle this issue we need a coordinated national voice, an obvious rallying point, the collaboration of the sector, the explicit support of the community and endorsement of government. We believe this new foundation can achieve that.” For more head to preventviolence.org.au. White Ribbon Day will be on November 25.

Dear Editor, The past three and a half months have seen our family experience the dreaded cancer diagnosis – a diagnosis so unexpected for my husband and father of our six children. Suddenly, someone else’s story became our own. We have, during this period, been overwhelmed by the care and concern shown to us by our friends, neighbours and the wider Torquay community. If I may be given the opportunity through your paper to acknowledge and thank so many – some whom I’d like to mention publicly. Torquay College – teachers, office staff, librarians and Marianne Messer (chaplain) for their continuing care towards our daughters and the kindness they have extended to our family in so many ways. Torquay Kindergarten – families and staff. Thank you does not even begin to express our gratitude for all you have done. Every gesture and offer of support leaves us overwhelmed. To Torquay Lions Club – your kindness was so unexpected. We will never forget your thoughtfulness at such an uncertain time. To Dr Neil Africa, Helen, Kate, Stacey and Marilyn from Torquay Bulk Billing Clinic for going above and beyond for us and for listening. To staff from Peaches Fruit Market – we are most grateful for your thoughtfulness these past months to our family. To the Salvation Army – Justine, Lyndal and Catherine – thank you for your kind thoughts and advice offered and extended. To Fran and staff from Endota Spa – a lovely thoughtful gift just for me. Thank you for the pampering. It was so unexpected. I was so grateful. Finally, we find, as a family, that sometimes thank you is not nearly enough but we just want this wonderful community to know how touched we have been by every kindness extended. Treatment now involves an intensive chemotherapy cycle for six months for my husband and we are hoping for a positive outcome. Donna Arena Torquay

Dear Editor, In response to Ray Page’s “Fishers want a balanced approach to conservation” letter (July 9). It would be no surprise to readers that marine parks in Commonwealth and state waters are a product of lengthy hard work by marine scientists – principally to conserve marine life but also to ensure the long-term health and productivity of our oceans is maintained. There is broad scientific consensus and plenty of data to show that marine parks achieve these goals. There is also a question mark over the ecological sustainability of up to 40 per cent of Australian fish species, and the science shows scientifically constructed marine protected areas can help their recovery. The science also shows they work best when threats like commercial and recreational fishing are removed. In developing marine parks, numerous filters like avoiding fishing ports were used as an automatic compromise to exclude some excellent marine sites from inclusion. Consequently, the end result was largely a compromise by scientists, marine planners and politicians to accommodate as much as possible recreational fishers. All of which explains why just 5.3 per cent of Victoria’s coastal waters became protected. Ray’s final sentence seeks to question the science
of climate change – providing an interesting juxtaposition of suggesting no “science” in the first instance regarding Marine National Parks and then ignoring the overwhelming weight of science for climate change in the second. It should be noted 97 per cent of all global climate scientists cite humans as the unequivocal reason for climate change. Graeme Stockton Torquay
The quicksand struggle Dear Editor, It’s now more than 19 weeks since I wrote about the disgraceful situation of the drain on the Portarlington foreshore below Fairfax Street. Nothing has been done – in fact, it is worse than ever. Copies of the published letter to the editor (including photographs) were sent to Geelong Council, our councillor and to Bellarine Bayside. This drain creates an area of quick sand and efforts were made some years ago to alert walkers to the danger there. I have done what I can to repair the plastic warning fence and I have left a large plank of wood for anyone who falls in to grab on to whilst you scream for help and remember the warning from the old wild west movies – don’t struggle! And if your dilemma is captured on the new CCTV, at least it will give city hall a laugh. Judy Bracken Portarlington
An important social issue Dear Editor, As we lead into a federal election, one of the most important social issues to be addressed is affordable housing. Without affordable housing, multiple issues arise in peoples’ lives – the inability to pay bills, accumulation of debt, being unable to heat homes through winter or apply for jobs without phones or internet. Unaffordable housing leads to hunger and reliance on community services for emergency food aid, and can also lead to homelessness. An inability to cope with the costs of living also has an enormous emotional toll in people’s lives – including things like depression and anxiety – and this affects renters, owners, families, singles and children in the community; it is an endemic social problem and will only become worse if unaddressed. In the Surf Coast Shire, 35 per cent of residents are in private rental stress, 16 per cent are in mortgage stress and 12 per cent are in housing stress. Australia is a very rich country, yet more than 2.2 million people struggle every day to make ends meet. It is not good enough. Australians for Affordable Housing Torquay
Tornado hits St Leonards
Dear Editor, I went to a very interesting meeting in Anglesea on Sunday July 21 where two main but connected issues were discussed. Most startling was the fact that exploration company Lakes Oil, in which Gina Reinhart has a share, has two exploration licences in east and west Otways, looking for Coal Seam Gas (CSG) and tight gas. We’ve all heard of the concern this has brought to many other parts of eastern Australia, including the Lock the Gate campaigns run by many farmers concerned by the effect of the drilling and fracking on pollution of ground water and the surrounding land. There are many other questions to be answered, such as: What is the effect of CSG on our health? What is the effect on the surrounding national parks? The second issue discussed was what is the impact of Alcoa’s coal mine and power station on the health of residents in the Anglesea area? Besides the effect on health and environment, both these activities are adding or will add more carbon dioxide to our atmosphere. Therefore the overall question for both of these issues is: How can we look our children and grandchildren in the eyes and not care about the future? The climate scientists say allowing business as usual (let alone adding more CO2 to the atmosphere) means our temperature will rise by four degrees or more in this century having devastating social, economic and ecological effects on our lives. I can’t really believe most people don’t care about the future of their children. It’s no good waiting for the two major parties to do much more than pay lip service to climate change. It’s up to us to persuade them about our real concerns. Think very hard before you vote in the federal election.
Dear Editor, I regularly walk along Bluff Road St Leonards and recently I was shocked. I stopped dead in my tracks when I looked down to the reserve at Lower Bluff and saw the project that involved Bellarine Bayside. It looked like the tornado that hit Malwala. The trees and shrubs had been flattened. I was told that the work was intended to remove non-native weeds and plants from the area, but the effect on many people in the community was one of shock to see their recreational area flattened with no community consultation. Landcare projects that have a bare earth approach to deal with invasive species need to be more respectful of the community for whom the landscape is a major part of their sense of neighbourhood. This project appears to have been done in haste. Was this due to spending the budget on projects before the end of the financial year? Works that are rushed and driven by economic objectives at the expense of community engagements cost more in the long run due to the real expense being community disappointment, loss of trust, and a sense of betrayal. This project should be more sensitive to the environment and to the local community. Landcare and Bellarine Bayside do good work but need to find a more positive way to keep locals engaged and supportive of their projects. Residents in the community would have accepted the loss, impact and shock of the dramatic change to our recreational amenities and space if Bellarine Bayside had organised a community information session, showing plans that showed similar outcomes at other sites where radical strategies were used. They could have: • erected a board at the site for perusal of residents • provided answers to frequently asked questions • provided information on weed management plans and additional replanting • fencing to protect new plants from people and invasive animals • protection from falls at the top of the cliff • used a staged approach to ensure flora and fauna were protected.

Landcare group grows with grant BY JAMES TAYLOR VOLUNTEERS at Torquay Landcare have received a useful grant towards their work on the environment. The group will use the $4,950 in funding to purchase a backpack sprayer, barbeque and gas cylinder, trailer, brush cutter, and other gardening tools. Corangamite Federal MP Darren Cheeseman announced the grant last week. “Anything the federal government can do to support volunteer groups across the country is important,” he said. “I think it’ll be a fantastic return on investment. “After a cold Landcare morning, there’s nothing better than coming back and having a barbeque.” He encouraged other volunteer groups to make their own applications to the grants, which are capped at $5,000. “They can be for lots of different things – some groups will want computers to talk to their membership and produce publications.” Torquay Landcare group has been focusing on Bowmans Track along Spring Creek this year, revegetating the area, removing weeds and installing signs. The track is named after foundation member John Bowman, who was involved in the revegetation and establishment of a major wildlife corridor along the creek in the early 1980s. Torquay Landcare volunteer Lesley Evans said the group had 59 families in its membership but was always looking for more. She said local organisations were ideally placed to drive environmental work in their own communities. “It’s about knowledge on the ground, because then we’ve got the community who know the issues in the area, rather than someone in Canberra.” Membership of Torquay Landcare is $10 per year. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Local clubs tackle the big issues BY DEAN WEBSTER LEISURE Networks have received further funding to roll out a program to help local clubs tackle the big issues. The VicHealth funded Healthy Sporting Environments (HSE) demonstration project, facilitated by Leisure Networks, aims to assist sporting clubs on their journey of cultural and structural change. The program focuses on key health areas around the responsible use of alcohol, reduced tobacco use, safety, support and inclusion, injury prevention and management, healthy eating and UV protection. The current clubs participating in the Healthy Sporting Environments program within the Surf Coast are the Torquay Netball Club, Modewarre Football and Netball Club, Winchelsea Football and Netball Club and the Anglesea Junior Football and Netball Club. Leisure Networks chief executive officer Libby Mears said that this region is known for its strong and vibrant sporting club culture, managed by dedicated volunteers who have put in hours of time to make these clubs a success, however, negative experiences can make it a lot harder for everyone. “Our work with clubs through the VicHealth Healthy Sporting Environments program is helping volunteers to make positive changes to their club so that everyone has a positive, fun experience when they participate in sport, whether it’s on the field, as a spectator or an umpire.” The program provides one-on-one support from Leisure Networks staff and is free for participants. With the support of Leisure Networks staff, clubs identify what they are currently doing to promote health and look at ways to make their club even healthier. Sporting clubs are in a unique position to be leaders in promoting health within their community. “Clubs provide places where people make new friends, be part of a team, get some exercise and get involved in their communities,” Ms Mears said. “However, they can be places where we see unhealthy behaviours like smoking, drunkenness, high consumption of fast foods and sometimes discrimination. “These are difficult issues to address for some clubs and it takes a real commitment to want to improve their environment.” Torquay Netball Club president Laura Cole said that the HSE project was a fantastic opportunity to ensure the club has a healthy and welcoming environment. “The support from Leisure Networks is enthusiastic and very helpful. The program has been very beneficial to our club and has not cost us a cent.” Leisure Networks experience with clubs has shown that positive changes attract more members, and VicHealth research has shown that more people would be attracted to joining a sporting club if they felt it was going to be a welcoming and healthy environment. All clubs taking part in the HSE program receive formal recognition of their efforts.

Community committees receive support BY DEAN WEBSTER GEELONG consulting company HR4Business has been engaged to manage a pilot project which incorporates a number of neighbourhood houses across the Barwon Region, including the Bellarine Peninsula and Surf Coast Shire. The Partnerships for Strengthening project is funded by Adult Community and Further Education (ACFE) and supported by the Department of Planning and Community Development, the Department of Human Services, the City of Greater Geelong and the Barwon Network of Neighbourhood Houses. The project was initiated due to a need to improve the skills within committees of management and to develop a model for sustainable partnerships with local business. The aim of the project is to support committees of management for community-based organisations to develop and improve their governance skills and “back of house” operations after receiving consistent feedback from key sector stakeholders about issues in relation to sourcing and retaining committees of
BY JAMES TAYLOR THE nation’s largest annual youth poll is on again, and people in Geelong and the Surf Coast aged between 15 and 19 have been invited to share their views, concerns and values. The Mission Australia Youth Survey closes on August 5, with results to be published later in the year. The economy was the greatest concern for young Australians in 2012, with 31 per cent of respondents listing financial pressures as their top concern.
management with adequate skills sets. HR4Business principal consultant Sue Kelly is very pleased with the progress of the project so far. “In particular the successful business relationships brokered, the links developed between the business community and the sector and the subsequent access to such services by the pilot group. “Most importantly we are developing a sustainable framework of the outcomes of the project, which will be managed by the Barwon Network of Neighbourhood Houses beyond the 12 month project timeline. “We are very excited about the possibility of the model under development extending beyond the neighbourhood house and ‘learn local’ sector.” The project will look at how to attract individuals with good financial acumen, human resources or strategic planning skills. A range of professional development programs for committees of management are regularly offered and although useful to a degree, have failed to make significant shifts in the efficiency and effectiveness of committees of management in their governing
role. ACFE regional manager Georgina Ryder said that this project was an excellent example of governments working together to create innovative solutions to support community-based organisations. “Through the skills of the project consultant HR4Business, a suite of services have been established with local business that will assist community-based organisations in improving and developing their business acumen. “I have been quietly amazed at the level of support local businesses are willing to give to their community, especially given the difficult economic times they are facing.” Pilot locations include Deans Marsh Community Cottage, Gellibrand Community House, Lorne Fig Tree Community House, Springdale Neighbourhood House, Winchelsea Community House, Cloverdale Community Centre and Rosewall Neighbourhood Centre.
There were also a number of comments – many by children as young as 15 – about the need to get a job and contribute financially to keep their family afloat. Mission Australia’s Victorian director, Kylee Bates, said it was hoped more young people would get involved this year, as the survey provided insights that were vital in helping community groups and governments plan and develop youth services. “Mission Australia’s annual national youth survey is a ‘temperature check’ on what young people are feeling, what issues concern them, what they think are the main challenges facing the nation and how
optimistic they are about the future. “Responses to the survey help governments, youth agencies and ourselves improve and develop programs and strategies that are shaped by the voices of young people themselves.” Leading issues of personal concern in 2012 were coping with stress, school or study problems and body image, with 43 per cent of young women significantly concerned about the latter. “The range of concerns – from financial matters to stress, family conflict and body image – suggest young people are facing increased challenges as they

make the transition from adolescence to adulthood,” Ms Bates said. “We’ve also taken the opportunity to refresh the survey – now in its 12th year – and make it more relevant than ever. “In addition to the questions we’ve asked every survey, this year we’re also asking young Victorians about their future job aspirations, how much time they spend on the internet and their perceptions around local job opportunities.” To fill out the survey, head to mayouthsurvey. com.au.

Scouts need help for Nepal trek BY JAMES TAYLOR A GROUP of scouts from Torquay are looking to raise funds for a challenging and adventurous visit to Nepal in September. Alongside trekking in the Annapurna Region, the scouts are meeting Nepalese scouts, participating in a local service project and additional rubbish collection and education along their trek. They are also collecting school and personal hygiene supplies to donate to a local disadvantaged school. The experience of spending two weeks with remote communities in a developing country will enable the scouts to respect and learn about other communities. Scouting promotes a global outlook, where youth members develop leadership skills in small groups. Through experience, children learn and are introduced to making responsible choices on local and international issues. Through this trip they will develop self reliance, initiative, resilience and responsibility. The First Torquay Scout Group is holding a trivia night to raise funds to support the scouts embarking on the trip. The group is keen to hear from people who can support the event by sponsoring a trivia round or donating an item towards a silent auction or raffle. The night will be held at the Soccer Club rooms at the Surf Coast Sports Precinct on August 23 at 7.30pm. For more information about tickets or donations, phone Nicky Aitken on 0478 096 861 or email email@example.com. The First Torquay Scout Group welcomes girls and boys from the age of six upwards. Youth in the various scout sections learn about leadership, planning and preparing themselves through age appropriate activities. For more phone Desley McKnight 0411 986 779 or Liz Haines on 0427 258 772.

Pupils get moving the Bluearth way BY JAMES TAYLOR PUPILS at Anglesea Primary School have been getting physical with help from the Bluearth Foundation. The school is participating in the foundationâ€™s two-year professional learning program (PLP), which involves training for pupils as well as workshops for teachers. The national not-for-profit organisation is trying to increase the levels of physical activity among Australians, particularly school-aged children. In the PLP, schools have 36 Bluearth coach visits on a two-week rotation over two years. The sessions take a holistic approach to physical
activity and learning, and are designed around six key elements: â€˘ coordination and agility, which improves the efficiency and quality of movement â€˘ skill activities, which build physical competence, self-confidence and self-esteem â€˘ movement challenges and games, to challenge skills and develop teamwork, resilience and responsibilities â€˘ core movement, which brings awareness and structure and function of the body â€˘ dynamic movement control, to develop ease, elasticity, fluidity and control of the body â€˘ moving in the environment, to look for challenge while assessing potential danger and

Think ahead when feeding the horses BY JAMES TAYLOR HAY for horse feed may become increasingly scarce through the rest of winter, according to the Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI). Horse owners have been advised to start thinking ahead now, with some feed providers already rationing their hay sales. The DEPI’s Naomi Friede, who works with the department’s Bureau of Animal Welfare, said owners needed to calculate the quantity and cost of the feed needed until spring. “Planning should take into account that a horse requires at least 1.5 per cent of its body weight in fibre from sources such as hay or pasture each day, which means a 500 kilogram horse needs 7.5 kilogram of hay.” She said the hay used must be suitable for horses and that new owners should not be lulled into a false sense of security when winter rains lead to paddocks tinged with green shoots. “Owners must be aware of what has been termed ‘the green drought illusion’ where new, green pastures may not in fact contain enough feed and nutrition to meet horses’ needs and supplementary feed may still be required. “The important message here is that owners should be
realistic about their situation and, if they can’t afford to buy sufficient hay for their horses, they need to be considering their options now. “They may need to consider agistment, sale, rehousing and, if their horse becomes unwell, seeking veterinary advice — everyone’s aim should be to avoid an outcome where a horse becomes so unwell that euthanasia becomes a possibility, no one wants that. “When it comes to ensuring your horse stays healthy, hoping for spring is not an option and, if the decision is made to transport a horse, it has to be in good enough condition to take that journey, or ‘fit-to-load’, as it’s termed in the industry.” Ms Friede said owners had a legal responsibility to ensure horses did not starve or become distressed at any time, including during cold winter conditions when feed is scarce. “Some ideas that have worked well in the past include ordering hay in bulk, from outside your region if necessary— it may turn out to be cheaper too. “Owners can also consider sharing the purchase and storage of hay with a neighbour or pony club member.” Head to dpi.vic.gov.au/agriculture/animals-andlivestock/horses/health-and-welfare/horses-droughtwinter for more information.
Farmers should ensure their horses are well fed right through winter.
Commuters get appy with My Line for all train delays V/LINE customers can now get train service information and timetables on their smartphones. V/Line chief executive officer Theo Taifalos said the My Line app for iPhone and Android devices provides updates tailored to the travel patterns of every customer. “While V/Line is concentrating on running services to schedule we understand the impact that train delays have on our customers and the importance of providing timely and accurate information.
“Customers can set up the app to deliver push notifications about any disruptions to services on their line at the times they normally travel.” The release of the My Line app follows several months of development, customer testing and feedback. It builds on the success of V/Line’s Twitter feeds which provide up-to-date service information for all lines on Victoria’s regional train network. Around 7,000 people follow the My Line feeds on Twitter.
“At our train control centre a dedicated communications team generates service information that goes direct to customers who follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our Inform SMS system,” Mr Taifalos said. “Our customers have strongly supported these channels and we now receive more positive feedback about our communications when disruptions do occur. “The new My Line app makes it even easier for customers because they won’t need to have a
Twitter account or sign up for an SMS service to keep informed about service changes. “Once a customer sets up their travel profile, relevant service updates are pushed to their phone so they don’t even need to open the app to find out what’s happening.” V/Line expects smartphone users will migrate to the My Line app from the Inform SMS service which now has more than 8,000 subscribers The My Line app is available from the iPhone App store and Google Play.

Chuck another snag in the river A SURVEY of Victoria’s rivers has found most of them could do with a significant increase in the amount of instream woody habitat (snags) to improve their health and increase Indigenous fish numbers. Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) has completed an assessment of the amount of woody habitat in 27,700 kilometres of Victorian rivers using a combination of aerial photography and on-ground mapping. “Our modelling shows that the amount of woody habitat in our rivers was an average of 41 per cent below natural levels and we know that is having a significant impact on freshwater fish species,” fish ecologist from DEPI’s Arthur Rylah Institute, Zeb Tonkin said.
“The areas which had the greatest reductions in instream woody habitat included south western floodplains, Glenelg and north central floodplain river regions. In comparison, the Alpine, north east uplands and East Gippsland upland regions were in relatively good condition” “The Victorian government will use this information to prioritise areas for restoration activities such as reintroducing snags and revegetating riparian zones through current river health programs including: • Victorian waterway management strategy • Catchment Management Authority waterway management strategy • biodiversity strategy • fisheries management planning.
“We know that numbers of threatened native species such as Murray cod and trout cod do increase in response to habitat restoration and the same applies to many other native species.” “In the past snags were removed from our rivers because it was incorrectly thought that they reduced flows and contributed to flooding.” “Over the past 20 years we have been gradually returning snags to our waterways particularly through the efforts of Catchment Management Authorities with a resulting improvement in stream health and eventually fish stocks.” Head to dse.vic.gov.au/arthur-rylahinstitute/research-themes/riverineecology#Instreamwoody for more information on the instream woody habitat assessment.
Threatened Indigenous species such as trout cod (pictured) and Murray cod benefit in response to habitat restoration.
Have your say on new national parks regulations VICTORIANS are being invited to comment on new regulations governing the use of the state’s much-loved national parks. Comments are invited before the closing date of August 19. Department of Environment and Primary Industries (DEPI) executive director land management policy Peter Beaumont said Victoria’s 3.45 million hectares of national, state and other parks are visited by 33 million visitors each year. “The national parks regulations are primarily a tool for enabling people to access parks in accordance with the National Parks Act 1975,” Mr Beaumont said. “The current regulations prescribe appropriate behaviours for the protection of flora and fauna, cultural heritage, park facilities, water supply and to ensure the safety and education of park visitors. “Victoria’s population is growing and more people are visiting our parks. “We need to ensure that national parks are well managed so that people will be able to enjoy them now and into the future.” Parks Victoria is responsible for management of Victoria’s national parks. “The Victorian government is working to gain maximum benefit from our state’s public land, including national parks, to ensure Victorians continue to have opportunities to enjoy these unique places into the future while maintaining the environmental values of the parks. “We invite people to review the proposed regulations and provide comment. Responses from members of the community will be considered in finalising the regulations.” For more information go to dse.vic.gov.au or call DEPI on 136 186.

The Rolls Royce of aluminium windows THE very latest in superior design, and the energy efficient products the company has become famous for, is why Rylock Windows has gone from strength to strength, according to its Geelong owner. "For instance, our fully redesigned ‘Casement’ windows have exceptional features including winders to operate and hold them open,” said Murray Riccardi of Rylock Windows at Geelong. “The new winders are made in the USA by Truth Hardware who has been making top quality window operating hardware since 1955. “Also fitted are superior locking latches that ensure the twin coextruded santoprene TM weatherseals keep out all draughts. “Flyscreens are standard and also redesigned to form part of the frame so that the window can be operated by the winder without the need to open the screen first. “This has made this good looking, and excellent ventilating window suited to a huge range of applications.” The new Rylock Double Hung window has also just been released. “Gone are the troublesome spiral balances still used by other manufacturers, as the new window sashes are counterbalanced and operate smoothly and effortlessly. “The window is not only suited to new period style homes, but perfect for renovation work on older homes. “The wider framing, which is a feature of all Rylock products, don't have that skinny aluminium look.” "We've come a long way since we introduced our revolutionary 630 Series Sliding Window in 1983, and changed the way people thought all aluminium windows looked. “The chunky design was an immediate hit, and prompted people to start saying 'Rylock Windows are the Rolls Royce of aluminium windows'.” Mr Riccardi said all products are available in 22 standard powdercoat colours, and for a little extra commercial grade natural anodised, and a huge range of other powdercoat colours are available. "All of the new range is on show at our updated showroom at 61 Morgan Street, North Geelong, a stone's throw from the Ford factory, where you can experience even better Rylock quality and innovation.” Visit rylockwindowsgeelong.com.au for more information.
With views like this, energy efficient windows are a must.

Mini-Vanessa heads to the snow THE Transport Accident Commission’s (TAC) Mini-Vanessa van headed to Mt Buller to keep skiers and snowboarders alert on the roads after a long day in the snow last week and, after a good snow dump, is staying for another couple of weeks. The bright orange van will be stationed at Mt Buller over the coming two weekends, offering drivers coffee and free giveaways on their journey to the snow. “Fatigue still contributes to more than 20 per cent of fatal crashes on Victorian roads, and during the snow season, many people wake up very early to head up to the slopes and often have a long drive home that evening,” Assistant Treasurer Gordon Rich-Phillips said. “Weather and road conditions can change quickly in alpine areas. “It is important that drivers stay alert. “This, along with being worn out from snowboarding or skiing for a day, can contribute significantly to fatigue, meaning planning for a safe drive home is even more important.” TAC chief executive officer Janet Dore said roads can often be more slippery in alpine country during winter due to wetter conditions, increasing the need for driver and rider caution.
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.
“We encourage everyone heading to Mt Buller during the next (two) weekends to stop and visit Mini-Vanessa, have a cuppa and chat to our friendly staff,” Ms Dore said. “Last year, around 8,000 people stopped to visit Mini-Vanessa and this year we are also giving snow enthusiasts the chance to win slope passes on Mt Buller over the next three weekends.”
Skiers and snowboarders can enter to win through the Vanessa Facebook page: facebook.com/ilikevanessa. The Vanessa fleet consists of one big bus, one van (Mini-Vanessa) and one brand new Ford Ranger Ute (Beaut Ute). Mini-Vanessa is aimed at engaging and educating young road users aged 18-25 who account for around a quarter of Victoria’s road fatalities. Mini-Vanessa is staffed with young people who accompany her to events and ensure a peer to peer communication of road safety messages. Peer to peer communication has proven extremely effective in reaching out to young people. The TAC advises drivers to avoid feeling fatigued behind the wheel by: • sharing the driving when possible • scheduling regular refresher stops – using Driver Reviver sites where available to take regular breaks • ensuring good quality sleep prior to a long drive • not driving at times when you would ordinarily be sleeping
Mini-Vanessa is at the snow for the next two weekends. Here safety messages and the team get a dusting.
• never drinking alcohol before or during long trips • planning trips in advance. Keeping Victorians safe on regional roads is a key action in the state government’s 10 year road safety strategy. To find out more visit: roadsafety. vic.gov.au.
Used Car Safety Ratings Guide turns 21 THE state government last week celebrated the 21st Anniversary of the Used Car Safety Ratings (UCSR) Guide with the release of the 2013 update. Parliamentary Secretary for Police and Emergency Services David Southwick, representing Minister for Roads Terry Mulder, said he was delighted to announce that the Used Car Safety Ratings Guide for 2013 was now available for motorists. “I congratulate the team on the 21st anniversary of delivering these accurate ratings to enable Victorian motorists to choose a safe car. “It is encouraging to see in this year’s guide that commercial vehicles have made it into the ‘good’ or ‘excellent’ category for the first time ever. “Historically, commercial vehicles have disappointed in the area of safety, but this year they have certainly lifted their game, with three utes – including the Holden Commodore, Mitsibishi Triton and the Nissan Navara – awarded the ‘Safe Pick’ category for the first time ever.”
Mr Southwick said the UCSR Guide is a collaborative effort to drive down the road toll by VicRoads, the Transport Accident Commission (TAC), the Royal Automotive Club of Victoria (RACV) and the Monash University Accident Research Centre (MUARC). “We cannot determine the safety of a car just by looking at it, especially a used car. So this guide is an essential tool for Victorians looking to buy in the second-hand market,” Mr Southwick said. “When buying a second-hand car it is important to make the right choices to help keep you, and your family safe. “Driving a safer car is a crucial component in reducing the road toll. If every Victorian chose the safest car in their price range, road trauma could reduce by one third – that is up to 100 fewer people killed on our roads each year. “This shows the importance of consulting these ratings before making a purchase.” MUARC Senior Research Fellow Stuart Newstead, who led the study, said the difference
in the risk of death or serious injury in a crash between the worst and the best rated car was more than nine times for vehicles built from 1996 onwards. “Overall there are 109 vehicles in the ‘excellent’ or ‘good’ category, and 74 in the ‘poor’ or ‘very poor’. The best is the medium car category with 13 vehicles receiving the top rating for driver protection in a crash. “What’s more, of these 13, six are rated as a ‘Safe Pick’, meaning they are less aggressive to other road users, including pedestrians and cyclists, and are available with electronic stability control (ESC) – a proven crash avoidance technology.” RACV manager of vehicle engineering Michael Case said that late model Australianmanufactured vehicles were the stand-outs including the Ford Falcon, Ford Territory, Commodore Ute and Holden Statesman/ Caprice. The UCSR Guide is available in print and online at howsafeisyourcar.com.au.

The Voice favourite Jac Stone is coming to Aireys Inlet for Wintersong III.
ROLLS INTO WINTERSONG BY HAMISH BROOKS THIS year’s Wintersong event, to be held at The Aireys Pub on Saturday August 17, has had its talent laden line-up finalised, with the inclusion of The Voice star Jac Stone. The first two Wintersong events resulted in full houses, standing ovations and Wintersong III is looking highly likely to generate the same response. Organiser Marty Maher said that Wintersong is a unique and special format. “Each year we hand select four brilliant singer/ songwriters and put them on stage together, in a concert setting.
“Often without them meeting first and the magic just seems to happen. "To secure Jac Stone for this event is an absolute coup. She was a favourite on The Voice and has beautiful stage presence.” Sarah Carnegie is back by popular demand this year and has developed a strong local following in the past two years. A rare appearance by local musician and Aireys Pub co-owner Tim Wood will also be a big local drawcard. “Tim is an exceptional vocalist and songwriter, but is a reluctant performer. “He was brilliant in the first Wintersong, so I am rapt to twist his arm enough to
get him to appear again this year," Mr Maher said. Luke Legs, front man for Luke Legs and the Midnight Specials, is the fourth invited musician. “We were very excited when Luke accepted our invitation to Wintersong III. He brings his own individual style and it’s highly entertaining.” Mr Maher said he believed Wintersong is in the top three music experiences on the Surf Coast for the true music lover. Tickets are $25 from the Aireys Pub, 5289 6804, and Great Escape Books, 5289 7052. Seats are limited. For more details go to aireysinlet.com.au/music.

G R A P E V I N E BROUGHT TO YOU BY
You got to sass it! THE name Hugel is synonymous with the beautiful, sassy Alsace wine region in France. The winery was established there in 1639 and is still managed by the 12th consecutive generation of the Hugel family. Alsace as a wine and food region is seen as a crossover point between the differing cultures and influences of France and Germany, as they sit opposite one another on the upper Rhine River, which makes for a unique expression of the region and its wines. The Hugel winery produces four different levels of quality in their wine portfolio â€“ the classic â€œHugelâ€?, which is selected from the many growers under the Hugel umbrella. The â€œTraditionâ€? series is a stricter selection of these growerâ€™s grapes depending on their vine age and source to gain greater depth and personality, while the â€œJubileeâ€? range is exclusively sourced from the Hugelâ€™s own estate in Riquewihr and only from the best vintages. â€œVendange Tardiveâ€? are late harvest wines (dessert style) produced in outstanding vintages only and have an amazing ageing potential. Food wise, as these wines are all about texture, balance, complex aromatics, intensity and pure varietal expression, they make perfect partners with Asian food, but pork and seafood are the traditional food heroes for Alsatian wines and with the amazing quality of the current release wines now on show, I thought it an opportune time to revisit with the incredible value and quality that is the Hugel wines of Alsace.
Hugel Alsace Riesling 2010 ($37) This region does Riesling extremely well. As well as, or if not almost as well as, its German neighbours across the river who are renowned for their precision and purity. This amazing vintage is highlighted by the bright, vibrant natural acidity, minerality and the overall finesse and elegance on the palate. Get on it!
Hugel Alsace â€œTraditionâ€? Pinot Gris 2009 ($38) Pinot Gris from Alsace is almost always regarded as the best wine of the region. Even the basic examples all have that intrinsic richness and honeyed characters that softens the bright peachiness when young. The 2009 vintage is regarded as one of the top vintages, and this glorious example of premium Pinot Gris shows terrific richness and fullness with tell tale dryness on the finish. If you think you know Pinot Gris, then think again and explore the texture that is Alsace!

The Gentil is a fantastic amalgam of the white varieties grown in the region with half the wine made up of the â€œnobleâ€? white grape varieties of Riesling (elegance and minerality), Gewurtztraminer (aromatics), Pinot Gris (body) and Muscat (slight fruitiness). Sylvaner is also used in the blend for its light crisp qualities. This is a terrific entry level wine no matter what the vintage is, and the value is incredible.

Still Waters Cut Deep shown at 135 BY ALI DEANE RESIDENT artist at Drysdale’s 135 Gallery Pip Williams is proud to present a collection of her favourite memories of travels in Still Waters Cut Deep, on show now. The new exhibition showcases William’s love of colour and mastery in linocut printing, each image presented in a series of wonderful colours, taking the viewer to the serene Swan Bay on the Bellarine Peninsula, Tasmania and Kakadu. The works are large, vibrant and explore the use of line to create both serenity and movement. “There are mauves and pinks, reflecting that peaceful light at a certain time of the day. “And I’ve experimented with bright colours,
like in the Kakadu pieces I’ve used the raw ochres that are characteristic of Aboriginal art,” Ms Williams said. The water series is based on snapshots in time of just some of Williams travels. “We go kayaking on Swan Bay, and I am always looking for photo opportunities.” Williams is about to set off on a trip to the Flinders Ranges, which will no doubt inspire future works. Prints in Still Waters Cut Deep are hung with several versions of each, using a range of vibrant to delicate colour combinations – some unlikely, but all conveying the moods of a body of water. The show is open now; all prints are unframed and available to buy.
An exhibition opening party is planned for later in winter. Also new to the gallery this month are more of Bill Jackman’s unique hand carvings, this time in recycled red gum. Katharine Oliver is showing her light boxes, using antique glass to create unique background lighting for any room, and a range of jewellery, with glass beads mainly of the Deco period from France, West Germany and Czechoslovakia, collected over the last two decades. 135 Gallery at 135 Andersons Road, Drysdale is open every day. Head to 135gallery.com.au or phone 5291 8090 for more information and to confirm opening times.
Ducks on Swan Bay by Bellarine artist Pip Williams is just one of the pieces in Still Waters Cut Deep, on show now at 135 Gallery.
Identity and connections explored
A performer in Bangarra Dance Theatre’s Kinship.
INTERNATIONALLY acclaimed Bangarra Dance Theatre has created an intriguing theatrical experience in Kinship, which opens in Geelong on August 15 as part of Geelong Performing Arts Centre (GPAC) Deakin University theatre season. The Geelong performances mark the beginning of a Victorian and Tasmanian tour of the production by award winning choreographer Stephen Page. Kinship brings together two of Bangarra’s most loved dance works. The first section will feature Brolga, originally presented as part of the Bangarra production Corroboree.
The second work will be ID, originally performed in the acclaimed production, Belong. Brolga is a creation story inspired by the totemic systems in Australian Aboriginal culture, where every person is assigned a creature totem related to their clan. Set in north east Arnhem Land, a young girl ventures out before sunset and finds herself on a brolga feeding ground. As she is challenged by her totemic temptation, she takes us on a journey of exploring relationships between humans and creatures, reflecting on the intrinsic spirituality of the natural world.
ID investigates what it means to be Aboriginal in the 21st century, asking important questions of identity. In a series of dramatic and humorous observations, Stephen Page contemplates human nature in modern society. This bold dance theatre work celebrates the resilience of Australian Aboriginal culture in both its traditional and contemporary forms. Kinship by Bangarra Dance Theatre will be at the Playhouse Theatre GPAC, August 15-17. Tickets range from $25-$69. For bookings, phone the GPAC Box Office on 5225 1200 or go online gpac.org.au.

Victoriana Gaye is one part Jeff Raglus, one part Vicki Gaye Philipp. A trumpet player and singer-songwriter from The Black Sorrows and Bachelors from Prague, Raglus has toured and performed styles from reggae to funk
and jazz for many years. Since forming the duo with partner Philipp five years ago, the pair has been hard at work writing, touring and delighting audiences with their quirky folk-rock-pop. Their third album has been over two years in the making, featuring tracks like single “Holy Roll” and “Ancient Love”, both which have been made into film clips, a first for the pair. The night, at the charming Bellbrae Hall, kicks off with an acoustic set by Raglus’ son Kasper from Aireys band Paradise, followed by a dynamic collaboration
by Even’s Ashley Naylor and Bruce Haymes. And as a diversion from the delightful duo act Victoriana Gaye has become loved for, this time they are flanked by Ross McLennan on bass, Bruce Haymes on keys, Leigh Fisher on drums and Jordan Murray on the trombone. Head to Bellbrae Hall this Saturday night, tickets $20 include a copy of Holy Roll. Wine by Will Wolseley, snacks and chai tea by Fi, doors open 7.30pm, music 8-11pm. For table bookings or more info email Vicki at firstname.lastname@example.org.

farm food AT HOME with Tony Le Deux
The classics remain
I HAVE never really liked fashion. Not in clothes and certainly not in food. It seems to me that classic styles and classic food always remain. No doubt my wife, who worked in fashion retailing for twenty years, would point out that no matter how I try, I too am victim of fashion. She is probably right. There is a scene in the film The Devil Wears Prada which resonated with me. The ghastly Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep) is deciding between two similar belts for an outfit. Her new assistant Andy (Anne Hathaway) sniggers knowingly and disparagingly because she thinks they look exactly the same. The venomous reply delivered by Meryl Streep went something like this: “You think this has nothing to do with you. You go to your closet and select that lumpy blue sweater because you’re trying to tell the world you take yourself too seriously to care about fashion. “What you don’t know is that sweater is not just blue, it’s not turquoise. It’s actually cerulean. And you’re also blithely unaware that in 2002, Oscar de la Renta did a collection of cerulean gowns. “Cerulean quickly showed up in the collections of eight different designers. It filtered down through the department stores then trickled down into some tragic Casual Corner where you, no doubt, fished it out of some clearance bin. “However, that blue represents millions of dollars and countless jobs and it’s sort of comical how you think that you’ve made a choice that exempts you from the fashion industry when, in fact, you’re wearing the sweater that was selected for you by the people in this room.” I must admit that to a certain extent haute couture, like haute cuisine, does have lasting effects. One may well ask, how does a classic become so? I think experimentation is good and true quality and taste remains classic and the rest is forgotten over time. Shoulder pads and nouvelle cuisine have disappeared. Tailored suits and coq au vin remain. That’s why chefs like Heston Blumenthal are important. Heston’s foams, gases and downright whacky treatments of some ingredients will inspire modern classics. Perhaps one of his foams will one day be revered around the world like one of my favourite classics, béarnaise sauce. Accompanied by a beautifully aged, grass fed piece of rib eye from Torquay Farm Foods and some crispy potatoes cooked in duck fat and I am in culinary heaven.
INGREDIENTS 250g clarified butter 2 tbs chopped fresh tarragon 50ml verjuice 4 egg yolks
3 small shallots, chopped very finely 125ml white wine vinegar 10 Black peppercorns 1 tsp chervil
METHOD Melt butter slowly in a saucepan, discard milk solids and leave aside. Place peppercorns, shallots, tarragon, vinegar and verjuice in a separate saucepan. Reduce by three quarters, take off the heat and cool to lukewarm. Add egg yolks to a bowl over simmering water. Add reduction and whisk vigorously for about ten minutes. The sauce will emulsify – if sauce curdles add a tiny amount of shaved ice and it will magically reconstitute. Take off heat and add butter in slow stream continuing to whisk. Add chervil and serve immediately.

Saturn is moving slowly through your hopes and wishes zone, which can slow down your dreams, and increase your impatience. It’s time to put things in perspective and pace yourself. Be inspired by birthday great President Barack Obama “If you’re walking down the right path and you’re willing to keep walking, eventually you’ll make progress.”
Impulsive Mars and unpredictable Uranus square up on Thursday, which boosts your “devil-may-care” attitude. But too much hot-headed hastiness could lead to an argument or accident, so, if you must take risks, make sure they are calculated and clever ones. Saturday’s positive Venus/Mars aspects will help you deal with relationship rumbles in a more diplomatic way.
Expect some dramatic disruptions this week Crabs, as Mars and Uranus shake up your personal and professional worlds. When it comes to your job, stay on top of new developments and don’t be afraid to adjust your approach if required. Looking for work? You need to think outside the square, and find original ways to present yourself to potential employers.
A loved one will continue to surprise you, so don’t even try to anticipate what they’ll do next. With Venus your ruling planet visiting your seclusion zone, take a break from the social whirl and spend some quality time with a special person, you. Be inspired by birthday great Kate Bush “There’s an awful lot you learn about yourself when you’re alone”.
All types of communication are favoured this week as you catch up on correspondence via email, texting, tweeting, blogging or snail mail. Some Bulls will fall passionately in love, while others will renew an acquaintance that has lapsed. Saturday is super for socialising and entertaining as you catch up with family, friends and like-minded people within your local community.
This week’s stars highlight being passionate and proactive, as you tackle challenges with extra energy and enthusiasm. With the Sun lighting up your sign until August 23 you’ll feel your Lion’s roar returning in spades! Others are sitting up and taking notice of what you’re doing which is just the way Leos like it. Finances are favoured, as long as you keep a balanced budget.
Hold onto your seat Scorpio, it’s going to be an interesting week as Venus trines Pluto your ruling planet. So you can expect at least one of the following: compulsive behaviour; profound psychological insights; a deep and meaningful conversation with a loved one; or an intense attraction to someone who is oh-so sexy and just a little bit dangerous!
Many Aquarians will feel edgy and somewhat eccentric this week, as Mars squares Uranus. You’re hungry for change but don’t ricochet off in a totally unsuitable direction, and end up throwing the baby out with the bathwater! Incorporating plenty of travel, exercise or outdoor activities into your daily routine will help keep your inner restlessness under control.
Avoid the temptation to be flash with cash and careless with credit, and don’t let a persuasive friend lead you up the primrose path to poverty! Rushed financial decisions now could lead to long headaches later on so slow down and take your time. The weekend is wonderful for social soirees and family functions, as you build bridges with a relative or neighbour.
Has someone slighted you or criticised you unfairly? With Venus visiting your sign until August 17 take it on the chin Virgo, as you respond with lashings of diplomacy and gallons of grace. And don’t waste time worrying about work. If you encounter hassles and hiccoughs this week, then clear communication will help you sail through any temporary turbulence.
Strive to be a smart Sagittarian. If you combine being proactive with being practical, then you’ll have a pleasant and productive week. But, if you rush and cut corners, you’ll just have to redo things later on. You love shining in the solo spotlight but with Venus visiting your career zone, the more you collaborate with work colleagues, the more successful you’ll be.
Group activities and joint ventures are favoured, as you soak up the talent around you. Nurturing the creativity of others brings many personal rewards. Attached Fish – sparks are set to fly with your partner so plan something special. Single Pisceans … romance is in the air, as you feel a deep connection with someone who is incredibly passionate or intensely private.

Get moving this winter with yoga BY ALI DEANE IF MOTIVATION and movement have escaped you this winter, then it might be time to try something that promises to not only make your body feel good, but is also great for the mind. You may not have considered yoga before but Sally Louise from Sanctuary Yoga Studio in Jan Juc is encouraging people to get out this winter and do something positive for their health. â€œPeople tend to hibernate in winter, and thatâ€™s when things can set in; if you keep everything moving around, then you have more chance at staying well,â€? Ms Louise said. Hatha Yoga is designed to prevent illness through the body and mind, by creating balance in your life through postures, breathing and meditation. It builds strength, flexibility, cardiovascular health, aerobic fitness, balance and relaxation. â€œWhat Iâ€™m about is introducing people to yoga in a safe and nurturing way. â€œThe main thing we look at in beginnerâ€™s class is moving the body; it is a bit of an all-in-one exercise. â€œIâ€™m not just about yoga, Iâ€™m encouraging people to do whatever makes them feel good.
â€œYoga leads you to a space inside that feels good, and then people feel good in themselves, for the rest of the day, and even days after.â€? A typical beginnerâ€™s class with Ms Louise involves many postures (asanas) and finishes with relaxation and meditation â€“ leaving students feeling refreshed, energised and extremely relaxed. She recommends beginners practice yoga twice a week, with many surprising themselves by stepping up to a more advanced class, then building up to practicing five times per week, or even incorporating a daily yoga meditation practice. Ms Louiseâ€™s sunny Sanctuary Yoga Studio in Jan Juc is always warm, and a true retreat, for both body and mind. Committing to a set number of classes and times is a great way to avoid your mind playing tricks on you, and therefore losing motivation. A new eight week Beginnerâ€™s Hatha course starts this Thursday, August 1 at 9.30am, and Ms Louise is offering 15 per cent off. General Hatha classes also take place on Tuesday evenings, and Thursdays and Fridays at 11am. Bookings are essential and places limited. Head to sallylouise.net or call Sally to find out more on 5261 5351 or SMS 0418 113 362.

Painting a picture of cataracts OPSM Waurn Ponds optometrist Rowan Prendergast says one in four people over the age of 60 has signs of cataracts, so people in this age group should have their eyes examined regularly. A cataract is a cloudy opacity that forms in the lens of the eye, which over time becomes more dense, making it difficult to see. Generally the development of cataracts is a gradual and painless deterioration in sight. Other symptoms can include blurred or hazy vision, spots before the eyes, double vision and increased sensitivity to glare. The impressionist painter Claude Monet famously suffered from cataracts. In the latter stages of his painting career, his cataracts caused his paintings to become more abstract as his sight failed, showing changes in whites and blues to muddier yellows and purples. His painting The Japanese Bridge, which he painted both early and again late in his career, shows the striking effect of his cataracts on his work. â€œAn examination by your optometrist will reveal any changes to the lens of the eye that may lead to cataracts before any symptoms appear,â€? Mr Prendergast said. â€œSurgery is usually performed when the patientâ€™s vision starts to interfere with daily life. Most patients have a plastic lens inserted to replace their own lens, with almost all people having vastly improved
vision and quality of life afterward. â€œIt is safe and effective, performed by an ophthalmologist in Geelong as a day surgery procedure under local anaesthetic.â€? There is no proven method to prevent cataracts, though cigarette smoking and UV exposure increase your risk. A broad brimmed hat and sunglasses that meet Australian standards should be worn outdoors to reduce this risk. It is estimated that over 50 per cent of Australians over the age of 70 have cataracts.
OPSM Waurn Ponds optometrist Rowan Prendergast examines a lens.
Two paintings of the same scene by Claude Monet. The later version of The Japanese Bridge was painted later in the artistâ€™s life when he was suffering with cataracts.
Around 160,000 cataract operations are performed annually. It is expected that the number of people who will become blind from cataract will increase by 75 per cent by 2024, unless there is increased prevention activity. For further information please contact Rowan Prendergast at OPSM Waurn Ponds 5243 9288 or email@example.com.

MOTORCYCLISTS circumnavigating Australia will pass through Lorne, Anglesea and Bellbrae later this year as part of an attempt to support research into connective tissue disorders. The first Ride Around Australia for Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome (EDS) will leave Sydney in September on a 14,000 kilometre round trip, and will hit the Surf Coast in early October. The ride aims to raise awareness of more than 600 debilitating connective tissue disorders and raise money for ConnecTeD Foundation, which is supporting efforts to build a connective tissue dysplasia (CTD) clinic at Westmead Childrenâ€™s Hospital.
OUR EXCLUSIVE SCANNER SEES FOUR TIMES WIDER^
The foundation has a wish list of items totalling nearly $340,000, including $101,600 for a molecular geneticist, $50,000 to set up and run the first national conference on EDS and other hypermobility disorders, and $45,100 for an occupational therapist to help with school and community visits. The cause is particularly close to the heart of ride organiser and leader Claire Healey, as she has EDS â€“ an incurable connective tissue disorder that affects her entire body. â€œWe look forward to spending the weeks motorcycling around our beautiful and challenging Australian landscape,â€? she said. â€œWhile it will be tough, we expect it will be extremely rewarding for everyone involved.
â€œWe sincerely hope that through raising awareness within the community, funds can be raised to continue ConnecTeD Foundationâ€™s important work with children and adults with connective tissue disorders.â€? ConnecTeD Foundation president Lynne Foxall welcomed the ride. â€œWe are thrilled with the tremendous support and enthusiasm shown by Claire Healey and the Ride Around Australia for EDS team to take time out of their busy schedules to help ConnecTeD transform the lives of seriously ill children and adults,â€? she said.

BOOK REVIEW WITH GREAT ESCAPE BOOKS
A World of Other People
THE latest novel from the best selling author of Let the Great World Spin, Colum McCann, takes readers on an epic journey spanning more than 150 years of American and Irish history. At first, however, TransAtlantic doesn’t read like a novel, but rather three short stories about characters who cross from North America to Ireland at different times in history and for different reasons. That the initial characters are real historic figures adds another dimension to the reading of this book. There are the pilots Alcock and Brown who, at the end of World War I, were the first to fly across the Atlantic non-stop; there is former slave and anti-slavery activist Frederick Douglass, who undertook a lecture tour of Ireland in 1845 just as the potato blight struck the nation; and US Senator George Mitchell, who was involved in negotiating the Good Friday peace agreement in Northern Ireland in 1998. These three separate journeys, while each interesting in their own separate ways, are beautifully brought together by the introduction of a fictional family who intersect with the historical figures throughout the novel. Once the reader moves into Book Two, where the lives of four generations of women are portrayed, it becomes obvious that this is indeed a novel, and a powerful and moving one at that. Whilst the stories of the historical figures are fascinating, it is the bringing to life of Lily and her descendants that makes TransAtlantic such a special book. The women of Lily’s family, like the nations they find themselves in over the course of more than 150 years, undergo struggle and hardship and survive through a mixture of hope and fierce determination. Their triumphs and disappointments mirror the challenges and achievements of the nations across the Atlantic.
A DISCLAIMER to start this review – I love the work of Australian author Steven Carroll. There is hardly a sentence he has written that I haven’t loved, so it is no surprise that his latest work, A World of Other People is a must read. This story of lost love is inspired by TS Eliot’s Little Gidding from Four Quartets and, like Carroll’s 2009 book The Lost Life, features Eliot as a character. But in this story Eliot plays only a minor role with budding writer Iris being the real hero of the story. The year is 1941 and Iris is a fire warden in London with TS Eliot. One night they both witness a plane go down; an incident that inspires the writing of Little Gidding and eventually leads to tragedy for Iris, who falls for Aussie pilot Jim along the way. Carroll has a wonderful ability to focus on the importance of the little things in life while placing them against a backdrop of world changing events. The characters see these events differently and are affected by them in different ways. In A World of Other People, there is romance, but it takes place in the shadow of war and we somehow know from the beginning that there will be no Hollywood ending for lovers Iris and Jim. Iris is expertly crafted and the reader feels deeply at every decision she has to make and everything she goes through. Both heart wrenching and heart warming, this is another fabulous book from an exquisite writer.

We have a winner
Zeb Walsh, 30, from Jan Juc has gone one better than last year to win the Men’s Paddle Board Stock Prone at the Molokai to Oahu Paddle Board World Championships in Hawaii yesterday. Walsh was one of three Victorian paddle boarders in training for the famous 32 mile (51 kilometre) Molokai Channel crossing. Here Walsh goes neck and neck with rival Jack Bark, the man who beat him by less than a minute last year. It was Walsh’s third world championships appearance, and he finished in five hours, 46 minutes and 13 seconds, securing the trophy for the 12 foot stock prone class. (RIGHT) Record numbers at the start of the prone division.
Coutas calm, confident heading to finals BY ALI DEANE QUEENSCLIFF Coutas remain undefeated after 15 rounds, and with just three weeks remaining until finals, the reigning champions are in an enviable position, three games clear on top. This time last year, the Coutas went down to Drysdale by just one point, but the weekend’s clash
saw them dominate the Hawks, finishing 45 points clear, 19.15 129 to 13.6 84. Playing coach Tom Limb said that after Drysdale took down number two Geelong Amateur in Round 14, this game was an important one to win. “We go in to every game confident; that’s what we try to instil in the side; confidence in the way we prepare, all the things we do to get ready. Things
started to go the way we planned them; if you do all the right things, you can get in a position to win.” Limb said despite the Coutas enjoying a similar run to last year, which saw them clinch the premiership, it was no sure thing. “We acknowledge and celebrate in a way, you’re always very pleased when you beat a quality side, but there’ve been four or five games with just a
two to five point margin. It could be a completely different story. And we’ve still got a lot of work to get the ultimate prize.” Queenscliff face an in-form Torquay Tigers this weekend at Spring Creek Reserve, a game Limb says is a big test. “Torquay are a strong side, and they’re playing good footy at the moment.”

WITH the Department of Environment and Primary Industries completing an assessment of the amount of woody habitat in 27,700 kilometres of Victorian rivers using a combination of aerial photography and on-ground mapping and committing to improve fish habitat in our waterways (see story page 23), it is great to see some real investment being put back into our rivers and waterways to help improve these systems. Our rivers and estuaries are important components of the ecosystem providing habitat not only for fish but also aquatic invertebrates, such as stoneflies, mayflies, mussels and midges. Winged adult aquatic insects are a staple food source for birds, bats, and reptiles and therefore
critical to the health of aquatic ecosystems, such as rivers and estuaries. We also know that our estuaries are in constant flux and are influenced by the transition from freshwater to seawater. Increasing salinity, sedimentation, pollution, with the removal and destruction of natural habitat in altering in stream flows have all impacted on our river systems. This can be seen in or own local streams and estuaries along our coast line. These processes impact directly on the fauna through toxic effects, or through the loss of suitable breeding, sheltering and feeding habitats, as well as through the isolation of populations due to loss
of water connectivity between floodplains river systems, estuaries and the ocean. The goal of restoration of aquatic habitats is to return these systems back to their natural state as close as possible and minimize future threats from human impact and provide us with healthy river systems and waterways into the future. We should all support this goal. 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 photos to mybigcatch@ bigpond.com

IRB champs return THE pinnacle of inflatable rescue boat (IRB) racing saw 50 teams from 29 clubs around Australia challenge for IRB Interstate and Australian IRB Club Championship glory at Mindil Beach in Darwin last month. State championship runners-up Ocean Grove SLSC made up the majority of the state representative side, returning home with 47 points and a close third place overall behind New South Wales (49 points) and championship winners Queensland on 59 points. Queensland, undefeated state champions, have
won five times consecutively since the interstate component was introduced in 2009. The following few days saw superb racing across the national team’s event, with teams from all four Victorian sides making finals. Queensland’s North Burleigh SLSC was crowned as the Australian IRB champions, their 11th National Championship win. North Burleigh finished with the highest point score on a total of 37 points in front of South Maroubra SLSC on 24 points and Kurrawa SLSC in third on 23 points.
Competitors were greeted with perfect weather for the IRB Interstate and Australian IRB Club Championships last month in Darwin. Here competitors from Ocean Grove display tight team work as they focus on crossing the finish line ahead of the competition.
Victorian IRB powerhouse Williamstown SLSC Team A snatched gold in the Men’s IRB team rescue for the second year, silver in Male Mass Rescue and Male Rescue and a tie for fifth place overall on 18 points. Brighton LSC landed 10th place (six points), Ocean Grove SLSC 11th (four points) and Portland SLSC was 15th overall with two points. LSV coordinator sport events Tom Mitchell said all four Victorian clubs did a fantastic job representing both their club and Victoria. “Each club had at least one of its teams in a final,”
Mitchell said. “This is an awesome achievement, especially for a club like Portland who is still relatively new to IRB racing and has been making steady progress over the last couple of years.” Following the Victorian Junior Pool Lifesaving Championships on the weekend, competitive senior life savers will now turn all their attention to the pool, in the approach to the Victorian Pool Lifesaving Championships in Greensborough in October. See lifesavingvictoria.com.au for detailed results
IRB competitors from Ocean Grove SLSC made up over half of the Victorian representative side, who were happy to bring home a third place overall for the state.

ANGLESEA GOLF CLUB THE week started with our Veteran Men playing at Curlewis on Monday. Colin Favre won the Division 2 event with 37 points making it two in a row after a win earlier in the month at 13th Beach. Then Friday was a district event for the ladies with a Pinehurst Foursomes event. We had a full field and the best of the week’s weather to host. The best for our club were Janice Calvert and Jill Emerson who were runners up in the Division 2 gross event with 99. Trophy winners were Jo Cordner and Heather Perkins from Lonsdale with a gross score of 85. Saturday night was the Presidents and Captain Dinner and it was a little more subdued than last weekend’s events. Needless to say it was an enjoyable evening with some great stories from Emmett Dunne.
WITH MARGOT SMITH
off the stick and nett 66½. Runners up were Veronica Shaw, Maralyn Cross, Aileen Morton and Myrell McConachy with 68⅝. NTP winners were Jan Stewart, Ros Holland, Linda Aimers and Ruth Trevaskis.
TORQUAY GOLF CLUB
FROM THE GOLF SHOP
The men played a 4BBB Par event on Wednesday sponsored by Barry Mason and Jim Reed. It was a tie at the top with Raymondo Shaw and handyman Peter Gannon winning the count back from the very clean David Cook and sparky Alan Trevaskis. Both teams scored 10 up. Frank Denahy and Michael Elmore were third with 9 up, again on a count back from Graeme Mills and Mervyn Worsford. The ladies played an Elimination Ambrose on Thursday with teams of 4. Our winners were Vida Brenner, Lorraine Elliot, Margot Parton and her daughter Jackie Parton. The ladies scored a very impressive 75
Saturday was the best day for weekend golf. It was a stableford event and the final round of the Presidents Cup (more info on that next week). Winners on the day were, Chris Duffield in A grade with 39 points, Uwe Morzinek in B grade with 38 points, Ann Stokes in the ladies with 34 points, and in C grade with a very impressive 45 points, Andrew Wood. NTP winners were John McLachlan, Garry Beurteaux, Philip Corbet and Robert Cook. Sunday started out looking harmless, but the rain struck mid afternoon with only the late starters forced to finish early. Winners on the day were Vida Brenner in the ladies with 34 points, and Geoffrey Howlett in the mens with 38 points. NTP winners were John Keeble, Miller Gelic, and Colin Kosky on the two back nine holes. The Captain’s mid-year report is on the website and provides some interesting reading on the works completed and in progress around the course, as well as info on the winners of events in the past few months. The Gunners will be at work again this week, so enjoy the benefits of their hard work. Enjoy your golf and stay warm and dry.
IT SEEMS that Mother Nature has once again triumphed over the ladies golf ﬁeld with conditions not the best most of the ladies pulled the pin. For those that did brave the elements, well done, as it turned out to be quite good for golf after all. Sue Barnes had the best score of the day with 33 points. NTPs Dee Matheson, Sue Booth and Cheryl Brunt. We hope that the weather will improve for the Medal day coming up on August 3. This week’s Wednesday competition saw 140 men out on the course a much better effort than the ladies. Truth be known the men rarely miss a round of golf rain, hail or shine that is their golf day and they must play! Andy Clark took out the A grade win with 39 points. B grade went to Daryl Sceney scoring 40 points and for C grade it was Ian Sadner with 37 points. Well done to Don Jennings with a score of 43 points he took out the seniors. NTPs James Webb, Rob Hawkins, Wayne Nitschke, Don Jennings and Ken Ballard. Michael Jennings hit the jackpot. Greg Giampiccolo was back in winning form to take out the A grade men’s Friday competition with 40 points. B grade winner Mark Franklin with his 42 points was also making a good come back and he scored an eagle on the 10th hole to top off his day. Anne Staig battled her way around to win the ladies with 30 points. NTPs Terry Taylor, Bob Hayles, Bernadette Oliver and
June Laidler. Ken Allen hit the jackpot. Saturday for the men Evan Huebner with plus 3 was good enough to take out A grade. B grade winner Geoff Lamont scored plus 2 well done to our Vice Captain. With a very impressive plus 6 Ron Jones won C grade from Richard Mierzejewski who lost on countback, there can only be one winner yet both were worthy of a mention with that score. Once again Don Jennings had the best score for the seniors with plus 3. With plus 4 Cheryl Brunt was a clear winner for the ladies. NTPs Evan Huebner, Gary Watson, Kevin Mitchell, Wayne Olney, Jim Newton and Marg Joyner. With a super shot on the 17th Paul MacColl took out the jackpot. Sunday Garry Smith had 38 points to win A grade for the men. B grade went to Geoff Drury also scoring 38 points. The ladies competition went to Mickey Knevitt who came home with 31 well-earned points in the wind and rain. NTPs Nathan Kerby, Peter Garland and Mickey Knevitt. The seniors’ day is on again on the August 12, so get your name down for this fun event with Bob who is once again in charge, you can’t go wrong. In the golf shop this week there are some great men’s shirts on special and some good bargains left for the ladies shoes, shirts and shorts just in case you need to stock up ready for summer.

FROM THE MEMBERS’ ROOM 39 points. In B grade, the very busy Peter Egberts proved a point with a nice 39 points; nearest to him was Terry Beggs on 36. The NTPs went to Andrew Parker on the 7th, Graham Harding on the 13th and Billy Mitris on the 17th
MEDLEYS Tuesday 9 Hole Stableford: This was a close affair with Sue Browne beating Rod Carroll on a count back both with 19 points. Sunday Par: Very tough day for scoring with high winds throughout most of the day. The majority of the field teed off early morning and avoided the rain and strong winds. No one managed to play to their handicaps. In the tough conditions Damien Fiolet managed to post the best score for the day with 1 up on a count back for second new member Zac Sawyer who ground his way round for 2 down from Alan Thiel in the GPS cart which gave him a helping hand in the conditions.

Portarlington 47 V Torquay 63 Surf Coast FC Country Victorian girls under 14s representatives Coby McInerney and Lara Heric.
Surf Coast girls star IT’S exciting times for football on the coast at the moment, with Surf Coast Football Club about to lodge its application to the National Premier League. Everyone has their fingers and toes crossed to bring good luck with the application. A big thank you must go out to all Surf Coast Shire councillors for the support they have provided to the club in developing the facilities, especially Cr Rose Hodge as the champion of local sports clubs. But there’s been as much action on the field as there has been off the field. A big congratulations must go to Coby McInerney and Lara Heric (pictured), who both played brilliantly for the Country
Victorian girls under 14s team. Between them, the two girls put five goals into the back of the net at the national championships in Coffs Harbor, starring for their teams. The girls have followed in the large footsteps of another Surf Coast FC girl, Jade Feakes, who is making a name for herself after making the NTC squad. The only question now is, who will be the first Surf Coast FC girl to make the Matildas? Surf Coast is now looking to develop some goalkeepers for the girls National Premier League competition, with any girls who fancy themselves as gun catchers and shot-stoppers (netballers please step up) asked to contact the club for a trial.
